Name Variation He was also known as Fuenty. 
Birth*say 1840 John was born at China say 1840. 
Marriage*circa 1864 He married Sarah (?) circa 1864.2 
Biography Terry Foenander wrote Warren Culpepper on 19 Nov 2004:
     "Some years ago, while studying the role of Asians who fought in the Civil War, I came across a New York newspaper of 1864, which mentioned the name of a John Fountey, who was stated to have been a Chinese, and who served in a Georgia regiment, during the Civil War.
     "Since I have come across the name of John Fontee, who was the stepson of Wesley Culpepper, I am now convinced that this John Fontee was the son of John Fountey, and it is obvious that his mother was Sarah, who later married Wesley Culpepper.
     "I have not been able to obtain any further data on the John Fountey mentioned in the New York newspaper article, but it is now certain that he did exist, and may indeed have served in a Georgia unit during the Civil War."
     From the New York Times of Saturday, March 12, 1864, front page (courtesy of Terry Foenander): A Chinaman from Rebeldom -- A youn man name John Fouenty, a native of hong Kong, China recently arrived in this City, Having made his escape from Savannah, GA., where he was conscripted. John speaks but little English. His story, which is undoubtedly true, is somewhat interesting. He says owing to some arrangement which he could never exactly understand, he found himself at seven years of age shipped as a coolie on board a vessel bound for Cuba. His term of "apprenticeship" being the expiration of four years, he was furnished with money to pay his passage home. He made an arrangement with the captain of a bark which was as he was informed, to sail direct to China. He paid $30 for his passage, and in four or five days afterward was surprised to find himself in St. Augustine, Florida. The captain explained the matter by saying his vessel was going no further. This was in 1862. Some kind gentlemen, residents of of St. Augustine, hearing John's story, took him in charge and sent him to school for a year, when he moved to Savannah. There he learned the cigar-maker's trade. At the breaking out of the rebellion, he was induced to join the rebel army, in which he served for a year. He was then mustered out, being under age. The last rebel Conscription Act brought John under the rule, and he was accordingly notified. determined not to fight any more under the rebel flag, he seized the first favorable opportunity to make his escape to st. Augustine. The Provost Marshall of that place kindly furnshed him with transportation to New York. John is now trying to get passage to China, hoping to see his people once more. His news is not of a very late date. He says that before he left Savannah, Jeff Davis came there and addressed the people. He was asked the question, "When iwll the war be over?" Jeff replied, "Don't, for Heaven's sake, ask me such a question. Not until the Yankees give up." In the latter part of January, there were but three regiments in the city and the fortifications surrounding it. There are but two forts on the river, but the channel has been obstructed in several places the obstructions extending seven or eight miles below the city. When he left Savannah, flour was $120 per bbl; beef, $100 do., boots, $150 a pair; Havannah cigars, $2 a piece; board at hotels, $15 pe day; mixed drinks, $3 each.1
