He lands in Co H 5th MO Infantry for the trip back to the Trans-Mississippi. This unit merged to become 3rd and 5th MO Inf. Minor was 55 years old and given a medical discharge ceritificate and work as an oredererly for Surg Gen Andereson at the Hospital at Lauderdale Springs Mississippi till captured by 2nd IL Cav. Paroled and released Tuscaloosa AL May 18 1865 with certificate.

Record from General Hospital Tuscaloosa indicate he was enlisted and mustered Ralls Co MO July 12 1862 by a Major Snyder. Disabled due to dislocated and fractured ankle "unable to walk any distance".

He was "arrested" and examined in St. Louis in June 7, 1865. He related being 55 years old, native of Farquier VA, living Marion Co MO. Enlisted Richmond VA. Worked as hospital orderly and cook Tuscaloosa and Lauderdale Springs. Signed oath, "paroled" June 7, 1865. 5'8", gray eyes, dark hair.

His PM record says he was a wagonmaster was at Moore's Mill, never bore arms, disloyal, recommended to be held for duration. He relates being at skirmishes at Bott's Bluff, Moore's Mill, and near Widow Kemp's always as commissary for Harris and Porter.

On his charge and spec sheet it states he was captured by Capt Thomas J Hart, Moniteau Co EMM. There is a list of other names listed as witnesses from the same unit. https://www.fold3.com/image/259451206
This would indicate Co F, 43rd MO EMM was the capturing unit.
