My family has been in Missouri for several hundred years in one way or anther. Iam searching for info on different sides on my family and know some but not all. I have found my great great grandfather Bennet E. Phillips at lexington. Other sides of the family fought on both sides north and south but I cant find them and I know they were either loyal to the union or the CSA. Because I have been on the internet and historical places such as the Miltenburger house and Ste.Geneve and Valle Mines all relitives. Iam sure They are here but I just have not found them yet. Thanks for the great site.

Comments:
Three of four of my ggrandparents were all in the war; one also had two sons and a brother. They were all wounded and I died of disease. My other ggrandfather didn't arrive in America until after the war was over; since, I started researching my family tree, I was amazed how many were veterans. One gggrandfather was even in the War of 1812. I will certainly mark this as a favorite; so, I can return as I want to.

You need to add information on Clifton D. Holtzclaw, a guerrilla captain who fought under Bloody Bill Anderson. He came from Howard County, MO. He was quite active in Central Missouri during the war. Died in Hume, MO in 1908.
Of Note: We are doing a MAJOR 1st Battle of Boonville Civil War Re-enactment, June 17-19, 2011. Though, short in duration, it had significant impact for the state. E-mail or call me on my cell 660-537-4000, if you would like more information. Clifton D. Holtzclaw was supposed to have fought in this battle and was wounded. JH

Can you transcribe or contribute materials to the site? yes
Comments:
Here is the name of my Missouri Confederate Ancestor to add to this site. His name was William B. Clay and he was with the Fifth Regiment, Missouri Cavalry Colonel B. Frank Gordon. He was killed, missing or wounded in 1864 as his family never heard from him again. His brother John Mitchell Clay joined the Union Army as the brothers were living next door to each other in Missouri before the war Started. John Mitchell Clay moved back to Ohio before the War started. William B. Clay was a brother of my third great grandmother, but unfortunately, she died after the war in Ashland, Kentucky. So, William and John's brother in law, John Carter Ball moved to Missouri after their sister,Julina died in February 1866. John Carter Ball and his son, Thomas Simms Ball were both in the Union Army from Kentucky. John Carter Ball was only two months older than Robert E. Lee and had to resign after only nine months because of ill health. Thomas Simms Ball stayed in until the end and him and his father both joined the Union Army on the 2nd of July 1863. Also, John Carter Ball's son-in-law was in the Union Army in the same regiment. His name was Warren H. Devore. He was a bad sort. He was listed as a deserter at one time, when actually he was out looking for deserters. He lost his hearing during the war. He drank a lot,because on Christmas Eve of 1872, he shot and killed his brother in law, James Ball over whiskey. He went downstairs and told his wife, Sallie that she had better go upstairs and tend to her brother, because he is dying. That gave Warren time to escape out the door want to his parents house and grabbed his coat and took off through the woods and was still at large two weeks later. I don't know what happened during the time after his escape, but from his pension records in the year 1876, a doctor has come to see his 18 month old daughter, Ida Florence. Mother's name was Emma Havens. He claimed Ida as his daughter. Evidently, since she was born in 1874, then Ida was born out of wedlock, because Warren and Emma did not marry until 1875. I have other stories on my Union Ancestor. Three from Ohio and Sallie Ball's second husband, James Washington Bivens from West Virginia, even though it was right on the border of Kentucky. I believe that John Carter Ball, Thomas Simms Ball, James Washinton Bivens and Warren H. Devore were all in the same regiment at one time. James Washington Bivens enlisted under the name of James Walters.

Today on another site I found my great-grandfathers confederate records and his Missouri hometown, Knob Noster. He was born in Ohio and I knew he enlisted at Springfield, but because of bad handwriting he was listed as Samuel H Kinder on some records instead of his true name Samuel W(Wesley)Kinder. Will search your site and appreciate all you have done. Very interested in Order 11 as his wife's family, had to flee Missouri and ended up in Texas.

Had two great uncles killed at the battle of Roan's Tan Yard. William Perry Jackson and Fred Marion Jackson. They joined the confederate army the day of the battle, therefore there was no records ever made that could be found. Their father went from Burton, Missouri to the battle field in a team and wagon and brought them home and buried them in the family cemetery. This was in January 1862.

What has happened to the Jefferson and Washington Counties websites? At one time, I had added a LOT of information on my ancestors that lived in these 2 counties and now I can't find hardly any of it and the one page I found, the story of my ggrandfather, George Washington Jackson, has a link to his ANCESTOR(?) I think meaning me? I also sent a picture of him and "The Survivors of the Battle of Shiloh," which I can't find on either website. When I tried to go to main page, it sent me to Ancestry.com and it said "I did not have permission to go there." What has happened?

A family book says that Benjamin Franklin Payne, my GGGrandfather was wounded at the battle of Pea Ridge. I need to know what side he was on. Also the Maddox family shared property lines with the James family in Karney Mo. The Maddox and McCorkle names are listed with the JAMES and Quantrell exploits...Very interesting and I now have the "Geneology BUG". Any information would be greatly appreciated.... Steve Maddox

What do you find most useful in your research? William Clay
Comments:
Seeking information on William B. Clay, born in Giles County, Virginia in 1818 Married to Malvina Harman, born 1817. They were married on January 6, 1837 in Tazewell County, Virginia. Their 5 Children were David P. Clay, born 1849, Rebecca Clay, Born 1851, Pricilla Clay, born 1853, John Clay born 1857 and Wiliam Zach T. Clay born in 1859. He moved to Missouri in 1850. He served in the Civil War for the Confederates. I did some kind of verification that this is the same William Clay that enlisted in Company B, 5th Missouri Cavalry from Davies County, Missouri. If you can find any of the information that I'm requesting it might give me a better chance of getting into the UDC. The only records that I have received reports him as missing during the raid on Missouri from August 29tn through December 2nd, 1864. He was with Shelby's Brigade.

What do you find most useful in your research? Murray
Comments:
Trying to find information about Bennett Murray. He joined the Fremont Ranger on August 8, 1861 in Cape Girardeau, MO. He was mustered out of the Fremont Rangers on October 1, 1861 and mustered into Missour State Militia on December 12, 1861 in Cape Girardeau, MO. I find very little information about the Missouri State Militia. I have found out that he was activated by the 56th Regiment of the Enrolled Missouri Militia on April 30, 1864 in Cape Girardeau, MO. There is a note at the bottom of the record that says, "Killed by guerriles after being ordered into service". His tombstone says he died on July 3, 1864 by guerriles. My question is what was he doing between December 1861 to July 1864.
