Bruce, Larry - Thanks!
My source of information was quite sketchy ( an 1895 list of veterans buried in Richardson Co., NE ). It was George Randall who was associated with the 8 Feb. '63 date ; the other three with "June" or "June 22, 1863". A county history reported Vandeventer's brother retrieving the bodies of Ewing, Randall, and his brother Jonas at Independence and bringing them home for burial (Falskin not mentioned). It's plausible that the fatal fight was in March and the retrieval of the bodies was in June, 1863; in fact it must be the 22 March fight.
Captain Johnson's company is interesting since it possessed some sort of small "steel" artillery; tho there's been some speculation as to the identity of these small guns, has anyone got some detailed description?
I doubt NARA's price increase can be stopped, but it seems they just increased prices not too long ago (a year ago?). In Nebraska we possess the microfilm of the service records for all soldiers in all Nebraska units (with one small exception), but no pension records. An inventory of such copies of NARA films ought to be compiled since it may become cheaper to drive somewhere and make copies than to order a copy from D.C.
Thanks for everything ; don't forget Nebraskans in Missouri regiments! John L
