My husband's g-g-grandfather, George A Darne(s) was a Confederate private in Captain Law's Company C, Riggins Batallion, Missouri State Guard. He is mentioned in "The Forgotten Men" MSG-Carolyn Bartels. I have a copy of his CSR showing that he was arrested as a civilian on his farm in Calloway County more than 18 months after his six months of service for violating his oath. His CSR shows he was sent to Gratiot Street Prison. There is also a recommendation that he be released from prison upon renewal of the oath of allegiance and bond of $1,000. Recent Ancestry.com records show that he died in prison of "inflammation of bowels" a month BEFORE his release was recommended.
I'd appreciate any info on the unit he fought with, as well as where deceased prisoners might have been buried. I've checked Jefferson Barracks records and he is not there, nor is he with any family members buried in St. Louis at later dates. I doubt that he could have been taken back to Callaway County in the heat of August for burial and heaven only knows how long it was before the family knew he was dead.
Any info would be appreciated! Thanks.
