Text Box: Confederate Soldier Graves

Note from Bill Wells, contributor of the above article:

Hello Friends,    Your website is terrific!  Since I have ancestors who lived in Audrain County, and are buried there, I was thrilled to discover such a nice site.  You solicit articles from the Mexico Ledger, and I may have something of interest to you.  While doing some research for Confederate ancestors from Missouri, I came across a microfilm record of an article from the Mexico Evening Ledger (date unknown) that lists the burial sites for a number of Confederate veterans.  I have photostat copies of this article, if you need it, but I have transcribed the substance into a table format which is attached to this note.  The article poses a problem for me though (besides the date); it lists Seed Tick as the place of internment for several veterans.  I have been unable to locate Seed Tick on any maps, old or new, and must assume that it is the name of a cemetery, and not a place name.  Perhaps you can help me?  Also, the article seems to indicate that there were several previous articles of this type, but without the date, I have no idea how to track them down.  The article is part of a collection of records that were compiled by the United Daughters of the Confederacy Chapters in Missouri in the early part of this century, and are on file at the Univ. of Missouri at Columbia.  Thank you for any help you can lend towards locating the last resting places of these veterans.  The transcription of the article is as follows (bold type is the headline):

Note on Seed Tick from Belinda Forgy 

Seed Tick, MO, populated place

This is a nickname, applied locally to a region in Salt River T, S of Mexico. It originated probably because someone happened to be unusually pestered with seed ticks while in the neighborhood.
The exact location is unknown.

RECORDS OF GRAVES OF CONFEDERATES TO BE MARKED

RECENT FEDERAL LEGISLATION PROVIDES FOR MARKING ALL GRAVES OF CONFEDERATES, AND LIST MAY BE ADDED TO UNTIL COMPLETE

 

Under the provisions of recently enacted federal legislation, markers are to be placed over the graves of Confederate soldiers, to establish the spots for posterity. The Ledger has published in recent months such lists of places of interment of Confederate soldiers as recalled by R.S. McKinney, former Commander of the Confederate Veterans post here, and possessed by the Fitzhugh Lee Chapter of the U.D.C. This list, by Joe Lee Bomar, of Ryan Ridge, will virtually complete the record, though any one knowing the location of other Confederate graves are asked to notify the Ledger or Mrs. Joe Luckie, the U.D.C. president.

The roster of deceased Confederate veterans, at some time in the past, residents of Audrain County, together with their state of enlistment, command and their place of interment, when known, as compiled by Mr. Bomar, follows.

According to the article, "All of Co. D, Col. Perkins' Battalion belonged to the 9th Missouri Volume (Volunteer?) Infantry, C.S.A.                                                                                     Respectfully, Bill Wells / SCV Camp #1659
