Additional Soldiers in Bourland’s Regiment

Not listed in National Archival records

I expect to find at least 50 additional soldiers that belonged to Bourland’s Border Cavalry Regiment that are not listed in the National Archives microfilm reels M-323-189 and -190 transcribed on in my 1,046-pge book, Bourland in North Texas and Indian Territory During the Civil War: Fort Cobb, Fort Arbuckle & the Wichita Mountains.   Bourland's Border Regiment was originally formed in February 1863, but the the first records were written in March 1864, when Bourland's Regiment was accepted into the Confederacy.  Records were not kept for December 1864, resumed for only one month in January 1865.   Bourland had a 1,000 men in July 1864, but from March 1, 1864 until June 2, 1865, records exist for only 815 men.

We know that some served at least six weeks on patrol on the North and West Frontier between February 1863 to Jun 2, 1865 (surrender) without their names nor service being recorded.   . Below is an example of a soldier whose name was recorded as a member of Bourland's Regt, Co D, only because he was KIA.

Walker, James Gary Walker (1835 Jackson Co AL-killed Oct 13, 1864 Elm Creek Raid) m-1856 Brazos Co TX to Ellen B. Smiley, 3 ch; widow Ellen m,2-George Hempflin; 1860 Brazos Co TX cen p92, 1870 Brazos cen p66; enl. Jun 1861 in Capt J.C. Benthall's Oakland Guards-TST Reserves, Colorado Co TX;  as part of Davidson’s (later Ragsdale’s) 1st Battn, Co B, Ariz Brig., Walker was  "transferred June 26, 1863 to Bonham TX"  per ORsIv26/2[S#42]p85.

Please send any proofs, or family tradition quotes, that a soldier was in Bourland’s Regt as well as his birth, death, and marriage data.  Many have sent family information and photos of soldiers in Bourland’s Regt.  I keep a special folder with a file for each soldier and plan to dedicate a least one-half page to each soldier in a future book.

Gist.     sent by Danella R. Dickson of Lubbock TX.

 

   Editor's note:  Yes, Julian N. Gist (of Denton Co TX) was in both Companies F and G of Bourland's Regt.  The Adjutant General's office scrambled the records of Companies G, H., and I .... the U.S. War Dept. tried in 1911 and yours truly is still trying to unscramble these G, H., and I records.  The men of Co F were mostly from the Montague Co TX area where Solomon Hodges lived.  Several kids patrolled or drove cattle on the North and West Frontier with no recognition, documentation nor payment, plus these kids furnished their own horse and equipage.  Only the established surnames (i.e. older residents) were remembered when the 1st Sgt. was recording the regimental monthly report for men who were patrolling many miles away (maybe 100 miles away ... on a horse).  And I must quickly add that many times the 1st Sgt. did not have writing materials. 

               In my book I have a rather long article describing the death of his brother, William Hodge, in the Clay Co TX area.  Yes, this is the brother of your Solomon and I'm sure that the death inspired him to do everything he could to memorialize his brother.   Also mentioned in my book is Solomon's father and brother, Joseph and Elijah Hodges, respectively.

              Minute men companies.  An important part of this CSA pension application #51091 is his description of the minute men companies and their activities until 1872.
