I got this from the Book "24th Missouri Volunteer Infantry" by Haup.
Richard served in Co. A, Dallas Co. Home Guard with brother Henry. Both enlisted in 24th Missouri Volunteer Infantry at Rolla, Phelps Co. MO. They were in Company F, a pontoon company. Today they would be called Combat Engineers.
Company F records show him Absent With Out Leave (AWOL) 29 Jan 1865 - 1 Nov. 1864 "left the Company at Rolla MO, not heard from since, 4 August 1864 in arrest for desertion". The same records also read that he musterd out 15 Oct 1864 in St. Louis, MO
I have his death as November 3, 1864 near Jefferson City in Cole Co. MO. I don't know where he was buried. If he died of smallpox he was probably buried quickly where he died.
Married Martha Dame September 3, 1858, Dallas Co. MO. I have one daughter, Elizabeth C. Evans b. Nov. 10, 1862.
