So from mid-October to early November 1862 a large number of Jo Porter's men made the crossing of the Missouri River, after which the Federals had a bit of success scooping a lot of them up. The EMM seems to have had a big day doing so on Mon., Nov. 17, 1862--
Here's what I know and can document for Nov. 17, 1862--In Camden County the 47th EMM under Lt. Joshua Chitwood captured elements of Porters command including Lt. William T. Crutcher/Boone County; Dr. William E. Moore/Howard County; Tilman T.S. Kemper/Boone County; John O. Skaggs/Boone County; J.A. Manny/Boone County; John Storm/Boone County;Samuel M. Terrill/Callaway County. Other captures that same day by the 47th EMM were Andrew Tice, George Jones, Warren C. Jones, James Jones, and Lewis W. Jones, home counties unknown.
And here is where I am hitting a wall for Nov. 17, 1862 -- That same day in neighboring Miller County these Confederates were also scooped up -- Minor J. Winn; Frederick Kreger; Thomas Smith; and Martin C. Flynt.
I can't find anything regarding an action in Miller County on that date. I think the Nov. 17 Miller County and Camden County actions are related, but maybe not. An action occurring on Nov. 13 on Eaken's farm in Camden County is definitely related to the the Nov. 17 Camden action.
The Nov. 17 Miller County captures were probably effected by the Enrolled Militia, possibly even by the 47th EMM -- I'm at a loss regarding what EMM regiment was operating in Miller County at the time.
I'm hoping to obtain information on these Confederate captures -- but most particularly the Miller County ones.
