Sandlin, born Unknown, died March 9, 1893, at age 55 y, 8m, 13d, is buried in Prairie Ridge Cemetery (also known as Brummitt Cemetery), Mercer Co., MO, Madison Township, Sect 11, T63N, R25W -- just off Route A, a mile north of Grundy Co. line. John N. Sandlin served in Co. C, 5 Kansas Cavalry Volunteers. He was the husband of Mary A. who died July 14, 1924, 77y, 8m, 20d. It interesting that at least two men, both born in 1837 from Mercer Co. were in the 5 Kansas Cavalry. Perhaps John Wesley Vinzant and John N. Sandlin went together to Leavenworth, Kansas to enlist. John Wesley Vinzant wrote a short letter home and told of the Battle of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. He included a copy of the regimental account of the battle. John Wesley Vinzant is a first cousin three times removed to my genealogist brother  and me, Vernon V. Vinzant,    Allen L. Vinzant,  (brother).

John Frederick Schluesing:  born 1843 Zeven, Germany; to Morgan Co, Mo 1845 with parents, settled near Florence.   Served Co F, Benton Co Home Guards 13 June - 13 Sept 1861, reimbursed $10 for gun & blanket lost at Battle of Cole Camp June 19th.    Reenlisted in Co K, 25th Illinois Inf on 30 Sept 1861 while unit was at nearby Otterville; "was in Battles of Pea Ridge, Stones River, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, and Kennesaw Mountain". Discharged 30 Sept 1864 at Alatoona, Georgia and returned to Morgan Co.  Died in Knobnoster, Mo 1930.  (GGF of H.R. Ficken, Ft Worth, TX)
Diedrich Keltner fought for the Union Army for virtually the entire U.S. Civil War. He was attached to Company C, 5th Regiment, Missouri State Militia Cavalry, (AND "Captain Nolting's Co. (C), German Regiment, Missouri Home Guards,"  he "mustered out" of service March 25, 1965 (the Confederate surrender was only about two weeks away).The records note he served as a private the entire duration of the War; further, the "Record of Allowances of 'Hawkins Taylor Commission'" General Index Card 382, notes Diedrich served with the aforementioned "Captain Nolting's Co. (C)" from 13 June 1861 through 13 September 1861 (about three months). Then six months passed, and General Index Card 382 notes that from 21 March 1862 through 25 March 1865, Diedrich was attached to Co. (C), 5th Missouri S.M. Cav. (2nd Organization), serving three years, four days. My guess is that the first unit was recommissioned as the second, or something like that--especially since the original unit was probably a special unit made up of German immigrants. I recall that the Union promised non-citizens that they would be awarded full citizenship (plus land, etc.) if they served the Union cause. Since Diedrich was probably only in the country for about 5 years when the Civil War broke out, that might well be the reason that he joined. Makes sense to me. A few years back, I requested and received Diedrich's pension records from the national Archives. They were pretty voluminous, costing about $25.00. >From what I recall, he applied for some sort of medical pension around 1896, but since he was illiterate, he didn't complete the forms properly and was denied. I think he finally got it about 10 years later--records also show his widow getting a widow's pension after his death (didn't last long, as she died about two years later). There was a special Census done in 1890 of Union veterans and widows, which included some information about Diedrich: from the "Special Census of Union Veterans or Widows" Roll 32 (Barton to Vernon) [note: that refers to county, which was how the census was conducted] Page 2, S.D. 6 E.D. 152 Minor Civil Division Richland, MO. [assume this means Richland TOWNSHIP; the CITY of Richland wasn't even close, unless it was the regional HQ for this census.) From SCH #1 25 49 49 26 (Continuation of above line) Kelner, Diedrich private Company C Home Guards 13 June 1861-13 Sept 1861 3 months do private Company C 5 M S.M. Cav. 21 Mar 1862-25 Mar 1865 3 years, 4 days (Following at bottom key of page) Florence, Morgan County, MO "Said Home Guards according to discharge afterwards (illegible) called German Rgt Mo Vol Inf" Diedrich Keltner's death was June 30, 1914 --very close to the date that Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo, which was the spark that set off World War I. I recall that almost all the newspapers on microfilm during that time were obsessed with that event. Thus, I figured that was why I never could find an obit for Diedrich.
