A reader of the blog needs some help:
I am searching for a long lost cousin who came from Osceola, Mo fighting with the Sixth/second Reg Inf Vols Co F under Capt Weidemeyer. After Jim Lane and his band of thuds burned Osceola to the ground, Capt Weidemeyer supplied his men out of his own pocket and rode off to the south to fight in the Battle Of Wilson Creek, Mo. According to what I have been able to find, the unit fought in Elk Horn where my long lost cousin was wounded and later captured in or around Franklin in December 1864. From that point, there is no further information on him. His name was Charles F Moran born Ky around 1840. His parents were Henry E Moran and Nancy E Brown from St Clair County Missouri. The Moran’s came from Washington County Ky around 1840. Any information or leads for this search would be deeply appreciated.SincerelyJoy
