Notes:
A Company of 55 Volunteers was originally organized by William B. Archer under the following Declaration:

"Where as the Executive of the State of Illinois in consequence of certain outrages committed on the frontiers of the State has required of the County of Clark one hundred mounted men as their ration agreeably to population we the undersigned Citizens of Clark County feeling it is beneath the dignity of us as Citizens that compulsory measures should be used for the raising of men for the defense of our country do subscribe our names as volunteers May 1832.

"Those who subscribe to this writing and volunteer to go will meet at Darwin on Thursday the 31st. day of may 1832 for the purpose of electing officers and making necessary arrangements to March &c."

Ten of the men who signed this statement were not mustered out with the company, although some of them did march to the rendezvous at Hennepin in June.



This list contains only those persons who were residents of Clark county at the time of enlistment and who were actually mustered into this Unit. Not all veterans may be included in this list and some information may be in error.
