RE: # 157422146 Milly
I got your multiple (long) messages. We can stop corresponding now. There's no reason why you should copy and upload my photo of Brushy Cemetery gate under your name on 3 memorials. It's as simple as that. I don't understand why it's so difficult for you to credit me with the photo, since I went there and took it - you did go there and you did not take the photo. I also pointed out a duplicate memorial that you had created, and a situation where you had created a cemetery that does not exist. No need to continue this conversation.

RE: # 157422146 Milly
Bev, You are the manager of your John Henry's memorial. As such, you are the only person who can manage his "family links". That said, he is currently linked to my Barlow memorial, showing Barlow as his father. I appreciate the good work that you're doing for your branch of the family. Regarding the photo situation, in July 2014 I went to Brushy. I posted a photo of the cemetery gate/sign on the main cemetery page. Bryan Baker visited Brushy after I'd been there that time and did contact me. He and I have corresponded. He has done some amazing work. I can't speak to his policy regarding download/repost of his photos. In terms of my photos, I prefer that you stick to rules laid out by Find A Grave / Ancestry and request permission to post the photo and then credit me as the originator of the photo (simple courtesy). You uploaded my original photo of Brushy cemetery without my permission and without crediting me as originator under your following memorials: Lewis Calvin Hudspeth Memorial# 61101469 - you added my photo under your name on added 6/25/15. Mary Hudspeth Memorial# 114996749 - you added my photo under your name on 4/24/15. Sarah Ann “Sallie” Gage Hudspeth Memorial# 112576790 - you added my photo under your name on 6/25/15.

I'm on Ancestry under "myfamilyconnections2"
I have a tree there but not much on the Singleton/McPeek side.

This is my husband's side of the family. Via his PAGE line.
Hester/Hettie Singleton married James W Page.

Sorry I can't help you further.

William Guess
As far as I have been able to determine, William Guess enlisted in Hunter's MISSOURI Cavalry of 1864.

Colonel Dewitt C. Hunter had previously commanded the 8th Missouri and raised a regiment (never fully organized) in the spring of 1864. The unit was comprised of a large number of Arkansas recruits. There are no Compiled Service Records for this unit.

In the engagements of the Camden Expedition, notably as Marks' Mills on 25 Apr 1864, the unit was part of J. O. Shelby's Brigade. With Shelby taking on a larger command during the next campaign, this unit became part of Sidney Jackman's Brigade, of Shelby's Cavalry Division. Hunter's Cavalry participated in Price's Missouri Expedition, fighting an action in the very early stages of the campaign at Ashley's and Jones' Station (near DeValls Bluff) on 24 Aug 1864.

As the expedition proceeded through Missouri, The Confederates were forced eastward through the state and ended up heading toward Kansas City. On October 22nd, there was a sharp action at Independence, Missouri as the Confederate troops sought to clear the town. A member of your ancestor's unit, J.P. Boatwright, recalled in 1901 that he saw him in a yard in the corner of a fence dying of cholera. He had been taken OUT of an ambulance and laid there. The Confederate troops fled from the town leaving wounded and able-bodies prisoners alike in Union hands. This occurred on October 22, 1864 (not Oct 15 as Boatwright and his compatriot state in Elizabeth Guess' Pension Application. On Oct 15, Hunters' Cavalry was near California, Missouri many miles east of Independence).

There are numerous records of Confederate captured at Independence, Westport, Mound City, and Mine Creek between 21-25 Oct 1864. Most of the prisoners were sent to St. Louis' Gratiot Street Prison and then on to points north (with Alton, Illinois and Camp Douglas, Illinois receiving a majority of the prisoners captured during late October 1864). The fact that no prisoner-of-war record of William Guess/Guest exists is a near certain indication that he did not survive capture by even 24 hours.

I don't think you will ever find an official paper that details your ancestor's exact fate, but the anecdotal evidence from his widow's pension together with his absence in the very complete Federal prisoner of war records suggest strongly that he departed life 22 Oct 1864 in Independence, Missouri.

RE: Elizabeth McPeek
Yes, we have the same James McPeek. His wife Sara Nelson died between 1850 and 1860. I have not found any death information on her. James died between 1856 - 1858, so I used 1857 as an estimated death date. If you will email me, I can give you more about James, his father William and the McPeeks.
