FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MILITARY RECORDS

There may be more information about these men and their military records in Federal Records Depositories. County Records also have military information. Discharges were recorded in the County the officer, soldier, or sailor returned to or settled in. In the Greene County Recorder of Deed's holdings there are several Discharge Record Books starting about World War I and continuing to the present time. Discharges provide a physical description of the soldier, the military unit or designation, a combat history, and other valuable genealogical data.

For service earlier than World War I, the Recorder of Deeds Records Books did record military service. Discharges begin appearing in the 1860's. References to previous military service appear in the records when veterans use their military service to receive land grants. Usually the military unit and war served in are listed. Cherokee Removal is included in this category.

There are other military records kept by some states. In Missouri, at the Missouri State Archives, are records of the Missouri Adjutant General's Office which include various military service either for the state or under its sponsorship. Helen C. Davenport has compiled a listing for Christian County for the militia formed after the Civil War. MILITIA - 1866 CHRISTIAN COUNTY, MISSOURI, contains several black militia men. This publication is available through the Christian County Museum & Historical Society, in Ozark, Missouri. There are many other state and County military records waiting for transcription.

 

MILITARY DISCHARGES

GREENE COUNTY, MISSOURI

WORLD WAR I & II

 

Military discharges have been recorded in county records since before the Civil War. The man discharged could deposit a copy of his discharge papers with any county although it was often the county he left from to enter the military. Greene County has several "Discharge Record" books among the Recorder of Deeds holdings.

Military discharges provide a wealth of information not found in other records. Physical descriptions, dates of birth, places of birth, and other statistics, including combat records, can be found in discharges.

The Discharge Records books are often difficult to scan. Omissions may occur in this listing. It is best to check with the Recorder of Deeds' if a particular discharge is not found in this listing.

RECORDS AVAILABLE THROUGH GREENE

COUNTY SCHOOL RECORDS

School records generally provide a variety of accurate information for the researcher. Certified copies of school records may be used to apply for and receive birth certificates. Before the consolidation of many rural schools, Greene County had over one hundred numbered districts. At least five taught black students. These five were Number 30, Ebenezer School; Number 72, Shady Dell School; Number 88, Sunshine School; Number 90, Oak Grove School; and Number 91, Pisgah School or Mt. Pisgah School.

There were other black schools in Greene County; Ash Grove had one school. The teacher listed in the 1936 directory was Geraldine Daster. Cave Springs taught the first through eighth grades where twelve students went to Maple School taught by L. Johnson. Walnut Grove had one school taught by Miss Ceola Darton [SEE PVT. JAMES L. DARTON listing in Greene County Honor Roll Biographical Information for more on Ceola Darton], Strafford had 17 students in school. High school students had to travel to Lincoln School in Springfield. Joplin also had a Lincoln School with a professor and four teachers.

One of the earliest references to black schools in found in the R. I. Holcombe 1883 History of Greene County, Missouri, page 490. "In June [1865] a church building belonging to the negroes of Springfield was burned by an incendiary fire. It had been used as a school building for some time."

Except for Number 72 Shady Dell School and Number 88 Sunshine School, school enumerations are for 1936. Shady Dell is a 1937 enumeration. Sunshine includes 1923 and 1924 listings. There are listings for some districts for both earlier and later dates, but 1936 school lists were good for cross-checking with the 1936 directory. There are county school lists starting in 1911, but there are not lists for all districts for all years from that date.

"DANFORTH COLORED" SCHOOL

According to David L. Burton's study of Greene County schools, the "Danforth Colored" school was located near Danforth Cemetery. He references the book Strafford, Missouri 1871 - 1996 for some information. Irlene Yarbrough wrote that this school was about a block west of the cemetery. Students thought to have attended this school were Ona and Edna Horn, John and Arthur Duncan and members of the Duke family. Teachers listed were Edith Beland and Lucy Holman although dates they taught were not given.
