Thank you, Ruth.
"Please do not assume that a member of the US Colored Troops who was a resident of Missouri was necessarily a member of the Confederacy. The Adjutant General of the War Department issued General Order No. 329 on 3 October 1863 which provided for the slave owners in Missouri, Maryland (Confederate states that did not secede from the Union) and Tennessee (which was by then under the control of the Union) to offer their slaves for enlistment. Slaveholders were to be compensated a maximum of $300 for the service or labor of a slave."
helps me understand the phrase from entry 391 in Preliminary Inventory 17.
I am still not certain how that might apply to a man who enlisted the 121st Regiment that formed in Maysville, Kentucky.
Do you think it could be possible that group of records created under the order of the Headquarters of the Department of Missouri could apply to man who enlisted from a Kentucky unit?
