East Texas Militia Recruits sent to North and West Texas

.

         The Name Index contains the names of scores of soldiers who were listed in the Appendix in an eastern Texas militia and were at a later date listed in a western Texas militia (21st Militia Brigade).  It is assumed that many recruits were simply sent to the 21st Militia Brigade without first enrolling and being recorded in an East Texas militia.  Brig-General M.D.K. Taylor, of the 7th Militia Brigade (East Texas on the Louisiana line), stated in his September 24, 1863 letter: "I mustered in to the State Service those present for the 21st District and turned them over to the Major commanding the "21st Militia Brigade." The distance between Texarkana, Bowie County (7th Militia Brigade), and Montague, Montague County (21st Militia Brigade) is 245 miles.   Some men went directly to West Texas to enroll in a military unit because they "did not wish to be ordered out of state but would go to any part of country [Texas] rather than be drafted [into the Confederate Army]." 

       The following listing shows some of the "very similar name" entries extracted from my Name Index of the soldiers who first served in an east Texas militia then served in a west Texas militia.  This listing is only an illustration of this major migration pattern and is a sampling of the men who enlisted in east Texas and served in West Texas.   Below is page 1 of 3.
