Percell" listed as a Private in muster roll of Co. E published by T.J. Carlisle in 1902 in The Weekly Enterprise (Enterprise AL); Reported by family to have died at his home in Robeson County, NC of Typhoid fever on 27 September 1863, having contracted the disease in the latter days of the Vicksburg siege; Born 25 September 1835; 1859 graduate of the University of North Carolina, at the time of his enlistment living/working on 3,000 acre plantation located at Columbia, Henry County, AL; Notice of his death as it appeared in The Fayetteville Observer, (Fayetteville, Cumberland County, NC) on Monday, October 19, 1863, appears below courtesy of Doug Purcell:

"Deaths of Soldiers:
 
At the residence of his father, in Robeson Co., Sept. 27, of disease contracted in the Army, Lt. John G. Purcell, 37th Alabama Regiment, eldest son of Malcolm Purcell, aged 28 years, and two days. Lt. Purcell formerly belonged to General Price’s command and was with that brave old hero at the Battles of Iuka and Corinth. At the latter place he was taken prisoner but was soon exchanged and rejoined his regiment, which was afterwards transferred to General Pemberton’s command at Vicksburg.  He was a while at Fort Pemberton on the Yazoo river and finally at Vicksburg during that ever memorable siege. Though suffering from disease of the spine and kidney, caused by a hurt received at the Battle of Iuka, he remained in the trenches forty-eight days and nights without relief, and never left his post until Vicksburg was surrendered to the enemy, when he was paroled and came home to die a natural death and to sleep with his kindred dust in the family cemetery. He had passed through many hard fought battles and we had hoped now that we had seen his face, that his life would be long spared.  But the ways of Providence are unsearchable.  Our joy was soon turned to mourning. He had been spared on the field of carnage to fall a victim to typhoid fever. Still, God is good; He permitted him to come home and receive the kind and tender offices which none but a mother and sister can give.  And though not a member of the church, he left us not without hope that the bloody scenes through which he passed were the means of leading him to trust in a Savior’s merits.  In the early part of his illness, he remarked that he could see no chance for him to recover, that his constitution was shattered and his strength was gone; but he added: I have prayed even in battle and I believe my prayers have been heard and answered. Never did a braver, nobler, purer or more generous patriot lay down his life on his country’s altar."
