NOTE: The following rosters are initially only those Missouri soldiers ( over 52,664 total listed) in National Archives records which are notoriously incomplete for many units. Thanks to Jim Martin of Houston, Texas and Scott Williams of the Sterling Price Camp, for making these initial rosters available.
Search hint: Don't forget to search using all possible name mis-spellings. In addition, there are known transcription errors. For instance, Caleb J. Perkins, is incorrectly listed as "C. I. Perkins" (wrong middle initial). Another example is a known error for Quinton L. Peacher, who is mistakenly listed as "Q. Peachen" (last letter in surname incorrect). Sometimes the only way to ascertain these errors is by obtaining a copy of the original military record. (How to obtain Military Record). Individual soldiers may be listed in more than one unit if they were transferred or reassigned.
Caution: This website uses a Microsoft Frontpage 2000 search engine. While it locates an uncommon names well, it does not operate as user-friendly when trying to find common names.. For example; searching for a soldier named John Davis, it may be best to enter "john and davis" (without quotations). This will find files containing BOTH words. Simply entering "john davis", on the other hand, would give every file that contains either john or davis, which will result in a large number of items found. Remember, using quotation marks will result in "no items found". Also consider all possible mis-spellings. Names in the rosters are entered in format: last name first name.

2) For Fast Service (within a day) Try Broadfoot Publishing Co. [Note: If you are a SCV member or new recruit, let Broadfoot know as the SCV receives a donation for each set of service records ordered.]
