Thanks. The information I have is that this composition didn't last very long, and that by October 1862 six companies of the Second IHG were skeletons only, most of their members having simply left camp and gone home. Brigadier General Blunt ordered the men in the skeleton companies to be mustered out, and those not present to be listed as deserters. Blunt would claim that treating the absent men as deserters “has been salutary upon the other Indians.” I do not know which companies were mustered out. By late November six new companies of loyal Cherokee were organized and mustered into the Second IHG.
Anyone out there with different information please let me know!
