      Columbia County, 88
      Leonard R. Cole, of Jackson towship, in said county, being duly sworn according to law, saith:
      That he is a son of Ezekial J. Cole of said township of Jackson, and is sixteen years of age. That on Saturday afternoon November 5th, three soldiers came to his father's house and searched it. they then went to the barn and deponent started to the orchard near it to drive out the sheep to another field. One of the soldiers stopped him and took him to the stable in the barn. Two of them were there. They said they would make me tell where my father was. I told them I did not know; that he had gone on Monday week to the mountain, up West creek gap, to hunt, and told him the way there. During the examination they put a rope around my neck, and threw it over a mow pole and drew on it. One of them held the rope and the other had a book to set down what I said. The one with the book directed the other to pull harder. He said my father had been there two hours before, there was no use denying it. I denied he had been there. The rope was pulled until my heels were drawn off the floor, and I was blinded and unable to speak. My mother and Elizabeth Robbins approaching they took off the rope, and I staggered out of the stable. One of them had a rope with him and they obtained another piece in the stable and tied the two together to draw me up. I had answered the questions they had asked me, and had not given them any uncivil language.
      I do not know the names of the soldiers in the stable, but would know them upon seeing them. The third one was Ephraim Kline, of Benton township. He was at the corn crib between the house and barn.
      [Signed] Leonard R. Cole.
      Sworn and subscribed before me November 7th, 1864
