Behrens, William: Not on rosters; applied for a pension 1894 but no certificate listed. Beyer, Daniel: Pension 1890 as "Daniel Boyer, alias Byer" and widow's pension 1900 Mary "Boyer."

Borchers, John: "Served additional month to guard government train to Lexington." Born, John Frederick: Service listed 1890 Union Veterans Census, but not on roster, and widow's application denied. Brandes, Christian: "wounded 6-19-61." Surname spelled "Brandis" on pension file. Brandt, Christoph: Not on roster, but biog in 1881 Saline Co History states was in Home Guards and Battle of Cole Camp. Brase, Christopher H: Widow's pension 1909; "Heinrich Brase" listed as alias. Brauer, Henry: Listed as among living Cole Camp battle veterans in 1913, and in 1989 Cole Camp book. Brauer, John Henry: Widow's pension 1904 "Henry"; John Henry Brauer on federal service record. Bruehl, John Gerlach: No pension data; name omitted from roster at own request, per statement on file. Brunjes, Diedrich: Widow is listed in 1890 vets census, but apparently did not apply for a pension. Brunkhorst, Diedrich: Not thought to be the Diedrich Brunkhorst then 66, but possibly his son Henry--24-- Hanover--Benton Co--no pension data--fate unknown--using father's name to distinguish from other Henry? Brunkhorst, John Henry: Widow's pension 1864 "Henry.". Budde, William: Listed on rosters as "Kurde" and this shown as an "alias" on pension application. Cook, Abel H W: "Elected Capt of Co A but did not command same." Organizer of the regiment and the original commander, but Henry Imhauser was appointed commander after the Cole Camp battle. An 1863 letter reported that Cook was killed later in Henry County, near Leesville, and the pension application filed by his widow states he was "shot by rebels in Henry County, 7 November 1861." Her application was rejected because "he was not in U.S. service at time of death, having been discharged on 13 September 1861." The widow received payment of $361.33 on 1 May 1865 for his June-Sept service. His probate filed 15 Jan 1867 stated he died intestate, and listed an appraisal of property total of $197. Cordes, Arndt: Shot by rebel troops in Cole Camp 1863 (Monsees Church records). Cordes, Henry: Not on rosters, but widow listed him in 1890 veterans census and applied for a pension. No certificate listed, so apparently denied. Dohrman, John Henry: Widow's pension 1864 "Henry" apparently denied; minor's pension granted 1865. Dueber, Gustav: "Disability disch 7-21-61." No certificate listed for 1912 pension application; did not serve the minimum 90 days required. Ebeling, Henry and John: Rosters list only Henry, but John's pension lists HG service and cites Henry as an "alias" so probably only John served. However, Henry and widow died before most pensions were filed, and Henry and John are listed in different HG Companies, so both may have served. Eckhoff, Peter: Not on rosters; applied for pension 1892 and widow Sophia again 1904, both denied. Ehlers, Claus: Not on rosters but listed in 1890 veterans census, no pension application found. Ehlers, John: "Disability disch 7-20-61" - Pension apparently denied; did not serve minimum 90 days. Elsinger, Captain: Cited in C. C. battle accounts but not on rosters or other records; possibly Henry Elsner, Musician.
