Civil War Confederate Roster
Confederates. - Although a large number of men from the county went into the Southern army and while many of the non-combatants were Confederate sympathizers, the county was at all times under the control of the Federal authorities. Little can be learned of the activities of the Confederates. Major McGee mentions a company raised by Dr. C. C. Hogan. The recruiting service of John D. Casey, Will Jordin, Logan Enyart and others are occasionally referred to. It was necessary, with the Federals in control, to proceed secretly. After evading the local authorities, the danger of crossing the Missouri river to join the Southern Army was yet to be encountered. Some were turned back, but it is estimated that more than 300 from Daviess County were in the Confederate Army. Efforts have been made to compile a list of these soldiers, but it is far from complete. Names of Confederate soldiers who were not residents of the county at the time, but have at a later date lived here are also included for several reasons. In the first place, it is not always possible to be sure whether the soldier was living in the county during the war. Second, since no concerted effort has been made until recently to collect records of these soldiers, it may be of value to those interested to have the record, even though he served in another state.

Thanks are due Mr. N. A. Baker, Mrs. Mary Cruzen, Mr. George Williams and Mr. Samuel Sperry, Sr., for assistance in compiling the list.
