References & notes

His service from his Compiled Service Records, with his wound at "Boonsboro" from Colonel McMaster's list for the 17th South Carolina (Confederate States Army Casualty Lists and Narrative Reports, RG 109, NARA), as Middleton Sweezy and J.M. Swezy, online from fold3.

He is readily confused with Private John Middleton Sweezy (c.1828-after 1910), Company I, 56th North Carolina Infantry.
