Maurice Ivory was one of the crew of the gunboat "Rattler" on the Mississippi. 23 sailors, including the ship Master Fentress, were at church onshore when they were captured On Sept. 13, 1863 by the Confederate calvary.
I live in Danville, Virginia where there were prisons for Union soldiers during the Civil War. At least seven members of the crew of the Rattler were brought here and three remain in the National Cemetery.
Maurice Ivory was admitted to the prison hospital on April 23, 1864 and was returned to prison quarters on April 26, 1864.
The dates that you list online are about right for a sailor during the War.
