Re: Confederate Lt. Dr. Julius McGuire

Kirby; First glance I think this is your guy: From Boone County genealogical society: Note he wasn't Doctor then but had "read with" a couple of physicians in Columbia.

Dr. McGuire is a son of Levi and Susan (Martinie) McGuire and was born March 22, 1826, in Boone county, Missouri, on the farm now owned by Mrs. Sarah Stewart, eight miles east of Columbia, and a mile and a half south of St. Charles road. He lived upon the place until he was about ten years of age when his father bought the place where he is now living and removing his family thereto. He was educated principally in Boone county, beginning at the age of six at Roberts school house on the gravel road. His teacher there was a man named Beatty. Afterwards he went to school at Boonsboro, then on the eastern border of the county. He resided at home with his parents until 1851, when he went to Columbia and studied medicine with Drs. Lee and Spotswood. After reading with them two years, he went to Cincinnati, Ohio, and took two courses of lectures. In 1869-70 he attended Jefferson Medical College at Philadelphia. In 1861 he took sides with the South in her struggle against the North, and joined Prices army. He was at the battles of Dry Wood and Lexington. After the fight at Lexington he came back to Boone to recruit and was in all the little engagements in Boone county. In 1864 he went to Kentucky and joined Morgans command and stayed there until peace was declared and the flag he loved was forever furled. He began the practice of his profession at his old home and has lived there to the present time. He has a fine practice in a good neighborhood and is esteemed by all as a thorough gentleman. He is a Mason and his wife is a member of the Missionary Baptist church.

There is a muster card for J McGuire 2nd Lt, Co A, 2nd Regt, Cav. 1st Division MSG, Oct 20 to Dec 24 1861. No further info. Not sure if this is him or not.
