Re: Morgan County Guerrillas
Bruce: I recently looked through a copy of the Provost Marshal Record book for Tipton during the war. (Moniteau County Historical Society has original.) There are two entries for men named Chapman - one is in "List of Persons under bond" in October 1862, initials are hard to read but appear to be I. H. Chapman. There is a notation by his name that he voted June 6, 1865 - perhaps a note added later?? Other is later in the book for December 1864 in a list of "Names of Citizens liable to perform military duty" where a James Chapman is listed. No Billy Chapman, but thought I would send this in case it helped in some way. I did not see any Packetts or Pucketts listed. The book also included lists of known sympathizers, prisoners processed through Tipton, and known slaves in the area. My great-great grandfather lived in northern Morgan County (south of Tipton near the Moreau) and is listed in the PM book in various places along with two of his sons, so evidently men in that area reported to Tipton.
