John Land - Private   
Son of Kinsen Land of Fulton Co.Ark.in 1860. Cousin to my Land family in North Carolina. Enlisted Nov.1,1862 at Horsehead,Ark. Discharged for ' chronic pulmonary disease. ' June 4,1863 8th Battalion Missouri Infantry,Co.E were a bunch of boys enlisting in Oregon Co Missouri and at Horsehead Arkansas with a number of 'desertions' from the unit early spring of 1863. If you draw a line from Oregon County MO to Horsehead Arkansas you pass through Fulton County. I believe him to be the ' noted guerrilla ' mentioned in the following Federal report copied from the OR :
Report of Lieutenant Warren C. Shattuck, Third Missouri State Militia Cavalry ( UNION ) : JULY 8-12, 1864.- Scout from Patterson to Buffalo Creek, in Ripley County, Mo. PATTERSON, MO., July 12, 1864.
SIR: In obedience to orders I started from this post on the 8th instant upon a scout to Buffalo Creek, Ripley County, with twenty- five men. We marched by way of Moss Ferry, on Black River, and Van Buren,on Current River, thence in the direction of Pocahontas, Ark., to the head of Big Baum Creek and down the same to Current River; down Current River to the mouth of Buffalo, and up the same ten miles to the house of one John Land, a noted guerrilla, who was found lurking in the vicinity and was shot. We started from Land's and came through the country, traveling by paths to Shelton's Mills, on Current River, and from there to Patterson. On Brush Creek, in Centre County, we came upon two guerrillas, who were shot while attempting t make their escape. We found no enemy in force nor heard of none nearer than Jacksonport, except small parties of guerrillas. All men subject to military duty are ordered to report to the Southern army, and many are obeying the order. From the information I obtained the conscripts are sent to Jacksonport, whence they are to return to Missouri as soon as they are armed and organized. Forage can be obtained at a few points on the route. Corn crop looks fine. Result of scout, 3 jayhawkers shot, 3 horses and 9 head of beef cattle brought in.
John had 2 younger brothers, William & Peter. I believe William was a Rebel deserter from the 4th Mo.Cav. I wonder if he and brother,Peter may have been the ' 2 guerrillas shot '
