Still scrambling around entering my old hand-written research notes to my 'puter.
I worked my way down to the bottom of one of the boxes, and found some research I had completely forgotten that I had. Some thirty or so years ago I went to the National Archives and transcribed the muster rolls of Coleman's Regiment Missouri Cavalry. Five of the ten companies were recruited in Arkansas: Izard County (Co. G), Lawrence County (Co. F) and Randolph County (Cos. A-E-K). I'm in the process of entering those men in my Arkansas Confederate soldier database. Quite a few 38th Arkansas men listed as deserters ended up in Col. W. O. Coleman's Missouri Cavalry.
Also, a little tid-bit of information I dredged up -- the nickname of another Arkansas company. Capt. Richard Hooker organized an independent cavalry company at Jacksonport on February 26, 1862, and named it the "Van Dorn Cavalry." It later became Co. C, 32nd Arkansas Infantry. (This was a different company from Hooker's 30-day company organized in December 1861.) I found the name on a quartermaster receipt, jotted it down, and forgot about it for 30 years. No telling what I'll find in the other boxes.
