Thanks for your help in my research. I already have all the military records and pensions records from both the Missouri State and National Archives that does provide alot of service information (serving in the 7th Mo.. S. Militia/27th Mo. Mounted Inf. but makes no mention of him with rank of Captain. I also have info. from family that also very intresting in that he seemed to be well educated for a man of his time and social position and age, mid 30s.At that time he wrote and spoke English very well for a German immigant. It seems the more i've found on him the more interesting he becomes. After many years of research on him, I've narrowed down a few things that I am still curious about. He died in 1903 in Sedwick County,Kansas. But I've been unable to find out where he is buried. I would like to order him a military stone if I can only find this out. I would like to find out more about his life before the war since he came to this country from Saxoney, Germany around 1859 according to his discriptive roll info. from the Mo. State Archives and various census records. in Missouri and Kansas. I suspect that he may have had military experence in Germany which could explain his rank of Captain and having served on the field and staff.I also know how some people at this time felt about the Germans in which could explain why he mustered out as a private due the fact that he had a good service record in which he was also severely wounded in the right shoulder at the Battle of Westport, Mo 1864 and left him disabled for the rest of life? In the Soldiers and sailors System, I also find him listed as a Captain in Co. D, 9th Mo. Regiment, Missouri State Militia Cav. under the name David Tuebener. Also Curious.
