Re: 6th or "Southwest" MO Cav. CSA
Wow, Terry, thanks so much. This fills out the picture for Jasper Scott. You are very gracious to share the details! THree questions: First: I am wondering whether any of your lists for 6th MO Cav contain Jasper's brothers Julian E Scott or Martin Van Buren Scott. I can't find any proof they served in the databases that are online (NPS, MO SOS, Fold3, Ancestry.com, misc. lists such as MOllus). But Scott family lore has Martin V Scott dying of Yellow Fever at Yellvill. His estate was probated in 1863. Maybe Martin or Julian were with Jasper and show up on another list. Their dad Samuel Scott was hung by Jennison's crew in Linn Co KS on Nov 27, 1860. Secondly, is your book the one at Two Trails publishing? Third: Ms. Eakins edited a journal written by a member of 7th MO Cav Vol. (Union). The summary suggests that the writer was part of the group that fought in Dec 1862 against the 6th Mo Cav (CSA). But, I can't find better detail--was it all of 7th MO Cav Vol, a company, two companies? The Scotts' brothers-in-law, and nephew were attached to the 7th Mo Cav. I am wondering whether they may have run across one another. Would you be willing to point me to a reference that would let me figure that out?
