Personal note to David L. Haimerl of Stover MO: ....Thank you for transcribing these records then being nice enough to share. ..Also, I appreciate your correct use of the apostrophe in “Wells’ Battalion” in lieu of the format of used by periodicals such as TIME that would have used: “Wells’s Battalion” — a fad that will be short lived, I hope.
