As I am sure you know, the military didn't work exactly the same in the 1860's as it does now. There was some finaggling done by states, counties, individuals, etc. Had to look up the information, but according to what I have, Page C. enrolled in Capt Hening's Company K, 76 Reg't E.M.M. on Jan 29, 1863 at Neosho, Missouri at age 18. Page C. enlisted in Capt Burch's Company M, 8 Reg't Cav. S.M. Vols. on January 31, 1864 at Neosho, Missouri at age 20. Mustered in March 22, 1864 at Springfield Mo., mustered out April 18, 1865 in Springfield Mo. Page C then enrolled in "Achord's Newton County V.M.M. June 1, 1865 in Neosho, Missouri. He was ordered into active service June 1, 1865 in Neosho. Relieved from duty July 21, 1865. I have looked into the evolution of the military during the civil war, but I'm not sure I totally understand it yet. As far as I get, the E.M.M. was financed by state, while the S.M. Vols (sometimes referred to as M.S.M) were financed by federal gov't. Some Counties had county named V.M.M. only, while other areas had more than one V.M.M., so they were referred to by the Commander;s last name.
