The Battle of Kirksville was two days earlier and the Union troops at Kirksville did not get down to Macon until the 9th.
John S. Brawner was listed as 40 years old (anywhere from 35 to 50) and from Bourbon County, KY. He was a carpenter and a wagon maker in service. Does this sound like your guy?
I have been researching the Battle of Kirksville for several years and would like to make contact. Email me at:
