Previous postings I mentioned that I had available the Day book for Company G, 3rd Indian Home Guards and that I had also the muster out documents of the same company. A lengthy task, I have completed the muster out rolls of the company. I am certain that those interested in the IHG will be pleased to see how this particular company was armed and the specific names of idividuals that died deserted or were discharged early. Of particular note is the large number of desertions, returns and deaths in the command. This company was apparently organized at Flat Rock, C.N. in July 1862 but not enrolled until September 16, 1862 at Carthage, Mo. Just days before their first fight at Newtonia. By doing these rolls a good many questions have been answered about some men lost at Newtonia, Greenleaf Prairie and Neosho Missouri. The desertions even have interesting possibilities as some of these names appear on the Confederate rolls later on.
Those wishing a copy of the rolls I will be glad to send a copy via an attached e-mail to your e-amil address. I used Microsoft Works Word and the work is on an now old Windows Me system.
