My Maternal Greaat Grandfather James Risley from Civl War papers states born Missour May 13, 1844 (where). Have not been able to document his parents. He died 15 June 1924 Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas. He was discharged August 1865 in Fayattville, AR. Were they usually discharged near their Home?? When filing for pension stated He enrolled in Springfield, Greene County, MO 18 August 1863. Two witness to Pension Declaration named Joseph Carpenter and Mattie Carpenter. Joplin Missouri. Could these be relatives? Wislson Rizley in Ark Cav but could not prove reltionship with James Risley
