ROSTER
CAPTAIN LOWE'S 1864 COMPANY I
76TH ENROLLED MISSOURI MILITIA


The Enrolled Missouri Militia ("EMM") was a part-time state militia organized in the summer of 1862 to help Federal troops control Confederate guerrillas.  In the spring of 1863, it was replaced by the Provisional Enrolled Missouri Militia ("PEMM"), a full-time state miltia.  For more on the history and signficance of the EMM and PEMM, see the introductions to my Roster, Company I 1862-63, 76th EMM and Roster, Company K, 7th PEMM.

The PEMM's creation did not terminate the existence of the EMM, which continued to exist on paper.  In 1864, the two EMM companies from Newton County underwent second enrollments and saw active service under new officers.  The 1864 Company I consisted of 98 men under the command of Captain Henry Lowe.  Thirteen of the men were carryovers from the 1862-63 Company I and four had prior service in other Union companies.  Eighty-one were entering Union service for the first time.

The 1864 Company I was activated for service twice, once in June & July to suppress guerrilla activity in Newton County and again in late September through mid-November to deal with Confederate General Sterling Price's cavalry raid into Missouri.  Fifteen of the men involved in the summer campaign joined the 15th Missouri Cavalry in July and August, 1864, and were no longer with the unit by the time of Price's Raid.  About 39 new men were brought into the unit in the September/November period and were not involved in the summer campaign.

RESEARCH NOTES

Tony Johnson, a descendant, provided the photograph of Captain Lowe.

The above roster is based primarily on the Missouri Secretary of State's Soldiers Database.  This database includes images of "service cards" summarizing each soldier's service in a particular unit.  The information on these cards was abstracted many years ago from the original Civil War muster rolls.  Some of the cards are more complete than others.  If a soldier served in three different units (e.g., 76th EMM, 7th PEMM, 15th MO Cavalry), then he should have three different cards.  Often, too, his name will be spelled three different ways.  My roster combines information from all of the cards for each solider, but does not include every detail on the cards for every solider.  If you are researching a particular soldier, be sure to look at the cards themselves.

Supplemental online sources for the roster included the Annual Report of the Adjutant General of Missouri, December 31, 1863, pages 514-515, and the National Park Service Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System.  The Annual Report provided additional information on some of the officers, and the NPS System provided a crosscheck for who served in the 15th MO Cavalry.

In creating the roster, I was researching the unit rather than the individuals.  The goal was to create a source showing how the EMM and PEMM units evolved, the number of men moving from each unit to its successor, the number of casualties and so forth.  I spent only a couple of minutes on each entry and did not attempt to sort out every ambiguity involving soldiers of similar name.  Some of the men may have served in units besides those listed.  In rare cases, I may have lumped together the service of two men with identical names.  Do your own research on particular soliders!

While soliders in the 15th MO Cavalry and other Federal units were paid by the month, soldiers in the EMM and PEMM were paid only for days "in actual service."  Some EMM and PEMM service cards provide this information, some don't.  If the number of days served in a particular unit is on a soldier's service card, it is included in parentheses after his enrollment information.  A "?" means the space for this information on the card is blank.  For members of the 1864 Company I, I have divided the days in service between the summer and fall campaigns where that information is available.
