Those mustered out in Dixon’s Ferry were listed under the heading of Captain Elias Jordan's Detachment.

 

William Batson is listed under “remarks”. It shows William to have been discharged to Edwards Co, IL and that he had suffered a loss while in service and the U.S. owed him money.  $4.75 to cover the expense of saddlebags, saddle blankets and 4 shirts lost in service. The original record was written with the money owed in pounds and shillings, but had been transcribed to reflect standard currency.
