John Corkren?

I'm not sure who this man is, but I think it is my great, great grandfather John Corkren who married Elizabeth Poe.

The Mystery

John was shot in the leg (although I don't know which one) during the Civil War and walked with a limp. He was later forced to use a cane. In this picture, it looks like his left leg is stiff.
