Soldiers of the Confedrerate Army from Franklin County, Missouri



Unfortunately, many of the records of service of men in the Missouri State Guard (Confederate Service), Confederate Army, and Confederate Guerrilla units as well at those groups in support of the Federal side including the Enrolled Missouri Militia, Provisional Enrolled Missouri Militia, Regimental Missouri Militia, and Home Guard units have not preserved for our and future generations. Researchers have been tring to uncover and publish data on these lost soldiers and some sources are available, but they can only give a small portion a number of Confederate muster rolls. The NARC has a series of Confederate muster rolls for MO but these include only a portion of the names who served (copies of these rolls can be found in many major libraries in MO including the St. Louis Public Library). The National Parks Department is working on creating an online index to all of the Federal and Confederate muster/pension records at the NARC and Broadfoot have published a book version of this project as well.


Soldiers of the Confederate Army (reference: Kiel p.109-111)

The history of 1888, page 260, says that about 600 persons from Franklin County served in the Confederate Army. This is a trustworthy statement, but proof in form of a complete list of soldiers, has so far been impossible. The records of Confederate soldiers were of no great value for purpose of military pensions in Missouri, since the State only paid a small number. It was not customary to seek any considerable public favors openly in Franklin County on a Confederate record, since the county had about five times 600 Union soldiers. The War Department published 130 very large volumes about the war of 1861 to 1865 and carefully noted every commissioned officer in that war, but every appeal for the publication of the rolls of enlisted men in that war, was carefully, studiously and persistently avoided, and it is impossible, even unlawful, for any person even a member of Congress to secure a company roll of enlisted men for any purpose whatever, and this despite the fact that some of our relatives turned over large records as gifts for preservation.

Records of about 600 Confederate sympathizers have been found and slaveowners of 1860 are at hand, but material records for only about one-third of the alleged number of soldiers has been found. Very few of the slaveowners and prominent Confederate sympathizers served as Confederate soldiers from Franklin County.

Liberal rewards will be given for additional Confederate martial records, especially if the record shows rank, company and regiment, or an organization that will make further searches and final verification possible.
