Dear Mr Cacek,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Indexes to the Carded Records of Soldiers Who Served in Volunteer Organizations During the Civil War, 1899 - 1927 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that included a digitized card for [Iowa] Raymond, Myron A - 4th Cavalry, Company I.
We also located the Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Volunteer Organizations During the American Civil War in the Record Group 94. Most of the service records in this series have been made available via microfilm and through digitization of the microfilm. Unfortunately, the records for Iowa Volunteers have not been microfilmed or digitized.
In addition, we located the General Index to Civil War and Later Pension Files in the Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs (Record Group 15) that includes a card for Myron A. Raymond who served with the 4th Iowa Cavalry and requested a pension when he lived in Kansas.
All of these records are in the custody of the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1). To order records from RDT1 that have not already been digitized, please fill out a NATF Form 86 for the service records and a NATF Form 85 for the pension records and mail the completed forms to the address listed on the form. You also may place your order online using eservices.archives.gov. For more information see Requesting Copies of Older (pre-WWI) Military Service Records.
Please note that the RDT1 has suspended reproduction and digitization services until further notice due to COVID-19. Orders will not be serviced until operations can resume safely. Once operations resume, document reproduction requests will be filled in the order in which they were received. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Lastly, we located the Regimental and Company Books of Civil War Volunteer Union Organizations, 1861 - 1867 in the Record Group 94 that includes the Regimental and Company Books of the 4th Iowa Cavalry Regiment. There is a Descriptive Book, Order Book and Morning Reports of Company I. For access to the records of the 4th Iowa Cavalry, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. Again, we apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
