wikipedia.com "all prisoners were "pardoned" even the commander Col. Mulligan." "Harpers Weekly" see the story along with a sketch of the prisoners getting "spoken" to by the Ex-Governor Jackson."

nps.org/military site. I received an email from them that said that "the 27th MO was cut-off before they got to Lexington, MO." "And not many of them made it to be Captured in Lexington."

Here are just -- 4 soldiers because they were Casualties:: "wounded, fatally Sept. 20, 1861 at Lexington, captured and died in General hospital in St. Louis on Oct. 30, 1861.

JAMES DENNIS AGE 28 Private Co. A" --from what I can read of the 8-9 pgs of info they amputated his leg and he died from complications. James's personnel effects listed were: "1 shirt,1 blanket, 2 children's dresses. signed by Gn. T Hodges"
WILLIAM ESTIS AGE: unk Private Co. E -- William was "wounded at Lexington and was taken HOME to die" with his family around him.
MORRIS FITZGERALD Private Co.K was "Shot in the head near Lookout Station Aug. 20, 1861".

TO THIS LIST I MUST ADD ONE OF THE COMMANDING OFFICERS that was "wounded and captured in Lexington [[:Category:First_Battle_of_Lexington]|and then he died in St. Louis MO. 30 Oct. 1861." the documents do not say exactly that he died of his wounds or that he died in the hospital. See his memorial 6161548 BENJAMIN W. GROVER LT. COL.] Elected 4th July 1861.

The 3 brothers=Payne's, George C. #67775674/ Barnabus A #132079091 are brothers but the 3rd, Joseph Payne age:26 was not. The Payne Family was one that split sides..George/Barnabus had 5 brothers who stayed in North Carolina and fought & died for the South. They are not related to my family, Payne's from KY.

I was just informed by a National Cemetery expert, "after the war was over the government hired men to disinter all the unmarked and mass graves that men like my g-g-grampa were buried in and they were moved to the closest National Cemetery and reburied as UNKNOWN SOLDIERS".. I do not know if this is what had happened to Morrison Mitchell Lee but there is no way of proving it one way or the other. As an UNKNOWN he/they still could be buried in the prairie of "Sedalia, Pettis MO." where the Field Hospital stood.
