Henry Alexander Neill, born 1828, Lee County, Virginia.  Son of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Thompson Neill.  Stephen Thompson Neill, a veteran of the War of 1812, brought his family to Lafayette County, Missouri, in the 1830's.  The family farm was located near Higginsville.
Henry Neill was a Lexington attorney prior to the Civil War.  During the Civil War, Henry Neill was Colonel of the 71st Enrolled Missouri Militia which was comprised primarily of soldiers from Lafayette and Saline Counties.  When the 71st EMM was mustered out, Henry Neill became the Colonel of the 5th (Provisional) EMM.  Upon the mustering out of the 5th (Provisional) EMM, Henry Neill became a Major in the 1st MSM Cavalry, serving until March 1865
when he was mustered out.  Henry Neill has a number of dispatches from the field printed in the Official Records of the War of the Rebellion.
After the Civil War, Henry Neill lived in Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri, where he was an attorney.  His next door neighbor in Warrensburg was Confederate Major General Francis Marion Cockrell.  The two "old soldiers" are both buried in the Sunset Hill Cemetery in Warrensburg, Missouri. The Neill Family and Cockrell Family grave sites are next to each other.
Descendants of Henry Neill include the Daniel B. Miles Family, who are now in their fifth generation of continuous ownership of The Clinton Daily Democrat newspaper, Clinton, Missouri.  A great-great-grandson of Henry Neill has a remarkable photograph of Henry Neill in his Union military uniform.  Dan Miles
Clifton Edward Bondurant, buried in Knob Noster Cemetery
He was a private in the 27th Mounted Missouri Infantry at the Battle of Lexington, wounded and captured. Released and promoted to Lieutenant. Then became a Captain in the 5th Provisional Regiment.
I have a book entitled "Johnson County in the Civil War" and it includes him in there as being in charge of Company G of the Fortieth Enrolled Missouri Militia.

George William Wright, was captured and was imprisoned at Camp Morton in Indiana. Indiana. And James Huff Wright, he served in Frank Cockrell's company. They were from  Post Oak Twsp., in Johnson County. At the end of the Civil War a newspaper article appeared in the Warrensburg  paper, listing the Confederate veterans who would be returning to their homes in Johnson County, It very pointedly informed them that they would not be welcome. The names of Thomas Jefferson Wright and James Huff Wright were on that list. Frank H Slaven   Mesa, Arizona
