ROSTER OF M'NEIL'S RANGERS.
The following is republished from the Staunton Spectator, by request, and published with pleasure, that it may be preserved along with other Confederate history that finds its way from "Our Confederate Column" to the scrap-books of the old boys who "fit" under "Marse Bob."
The Confederate Column takes it as it finds it in the Spectator, adding only the little story at the bottom.
We have been furnished by one of McNeil's men, Corporal D. M. Parsons, with a complete list of Captain John H. McNeil's Partisan Rangers, which next to Mosby's Battalion, was the most noted command of scouts that operated in Virginia during the war. Many of them will be recognized as gallant Augusta and Rockingham boys. There are 187 of them, all being Vir- ginians except nineteen, who were from Maryland, and are marked Md. in the list.
McNiel, John H., captain; McNeil, J. C, first lieutenant; Welton, I. S., second lieutenant; Dolan, J. B., third lieutenant; Taylor, Harrison, first sergeant; Vandiver, J. L., second ser- geant; Dailey, James, third sergeant; Seymour, Able, fourth sergeant ; Hopkins, David, first corporal ; Judy, I., second cor- poral ; Oats, L, third corporal ; Parsons, D.
