16 Oct 1890--THE HOWARD COUNTY SOLDIERS WHO MARCHED WITH DONIPHAN TO THE MEXICAN WAR. From the "Central Missourian".
The march of Doniphan's regiment from Leavenworth across the great American Desert, through the enemies' country, into the very heart of Mexico, was one on the most remarkable military feats on record, and has been often spoken of as equalling, if not surpassing, the similar feat performed by Xenophen, on the greatest of the Grecian generals. Through the kindness of Capt. W. F. Cunningham we are enabled to give a full list of those who composed the company furnished from Howard county to Doniphan's regiment. They are as follows: ...Silas Enyart, Jr.
The following is a partial list of those who died in service, several additional names of those dying having been furnished by Dr. L. P. Vaughan, who was one of the surgeons of the regiment: Browning, John; Enyart, Silas, Jr; Hackley _____; Leland, John D. Jr; Roberts, Marion; Smith _____; Carson, Nehemiah; Hopper, Clifton T.; Hughes, Ami F.; Mastin, Lewis; Swain, James H.; Sterns, William; Thrash, Richard.
