Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first. <br>  [http://www.sos.mo.gov/archives/soldiers/results.asp?sType=unit&txtUnit=6th%20Regiment%20Cavalry%20M.S.M.&selConflict=Civil%20War Regimental roster]<br>  Company A - Captain James Dundin - Many men from Cameron, [[DeKalb County, Missouri Genealogy|DeKalb County]], Missouri  Company B - Captain Elias Langford - Many men from Haynesville, [[Caldwell County, Missouri Genealogy|Caldwell County]], Missouri  Company C - Captain John G.
