    Seeking documentation that Confederates removed families in Missouri

    Richard Hawkins Newbie

      What documentation is available that describes Confederate removal of families from Howell County, Missouri?  I am researching the death of Cyrus and Sena Newberry which occurred in December 1862 in Rolla, Missouri. They were escaping to Rolla from their home in Howell County, Missouri after Gen. James McBride ordered about 50 families be moved to Rolla so the Confederates could control Howell County. What documentation is available that describes this event?
