In Response To: Re: Compiled Service Records (Jim McGhee)
Jim, I haven't seen the CSR microfilm for Davies' Missouri Battalion, but the records of Davies' Arkansas Battalion (aka 7th Battalion Arkansas Cavalry) state that at least four companies were organized in Greene County, Arkansas, for "Major J. F. Davies' battalion of Colonel Kitchen's [Missouri] regiment," operated with that regiment for a time, then were detached to operate separately in northeast Arkansas, and became known as Davies' Arkansas Battalion. I've always intended to get a hold of the microfilm for Davies' Missouri Battalion to confirm that the two battalions were one and the same, but haven't done that yet.
