Ozark County & Captain Stone's Mounted Company

Captain Stone's Mounted Company
Ozark County Home Guard Regiment Mounted
United States Reserve Corps Cavalry
Also known as the United States Reserve Corps, Company A, Ozark County.

Captain Thomas B. S. Stone’s Company was comprised of 132 mounted men. This cavalry was organized by the authority of General Thomas William Sweeney, on July 16th, 1861, in Springfield, Missouri.  This unit acted as scouts on the State Road from Springfield, Mo., to Jacksonport, Ark., until October 18th, 1861, when it was mustered out at Rolla, Missouri.  Captain Stone's picture & grave-site can be seen here at Find A Grave. It is a classic picture with a cigar in the corner of his mouth.  Again, below is the list of his regiment compiled from the Missouri Secretary of State’s Missouri's Union Provost Marshal Papers: 1861 – 1866  & National Park Service’s Soldiers and Sailors Database. As a side note, notice this company has its own musician listed.

Captain Thomas B. S. Stone and his wife Nancy Ann Murphree Stone were married Dec. 23, 1841, at Greene County, Arkansas.  They are found in Ozark County, Missouri, during the 1860 Census with four children.  I have no idea what the B. S. stands for in his name.
