The Indian Territory in the Civil War Message Board

Data Provided on W.E. Rosser

I wish to thank ARushing on the Arkansas Board for the following information on Sergeant Rosser:

“Found a William E. Rosser, age 18 upon enlistment in July 1861 at Fort Washita, Indian Territory as 4 corporal of 1st Company K, 1st Regiment Choctaw and Chickasaw Volunteers. Another single card lists a William Rosser as Quartermaster Sergeant for same Regiment and he came from Co K. I believe it is the same man. He was assigned as QM Sgt June 1863. This makes sense he would be in vicinity of northwest Arkansas during the war, but nothing on wounds or burning bridge is mentioned.”

And J. D. Stevens on the Texas Board for biodata on Sergeant Rosser:

You probably already have this info, but if you don't ... He is also listed on several Federal Census records.
