Hi Michael,

I couldn't find the exact John Witherspoon that you are looking for,

but # 6 looks like he could be your guy or could he have enlisted in another

state? There was nothing listed under the initial J or the name of Logan or a

John that was a POW (that doesn't mean he wasn't, though).  There are more

details listed in this database so if you see someone of interest let me know

and I will check it out.
