The following information was transcribed from "The History of Anderson County, Kansas, From Its First Settlement To the Fourth of July, 1876", by W.A. Johnson, Chairman of Historical Society, published by Kauffman & Iler, Garnett Plaindealer, 1877.

The names and military ranks are as they appear in the original text. The company is listed after the rank. If someone has two ranks listed, this means he was promoted from the first to the second. If the promotion was to a position in another company, that company is listed in brackets after the rank. If a date is given, that is also given in brackets after the rank. If a volunteer died while in the service, that is indicated last in his entry. If you find your ancestor and are interested in knowing who else was in his company check the "by company" list.

According to this book, 420 men volunteered from Anderson County, and of that number 56 were killed or died of disease while in the service.
