Civil War McClurken's in the 10th Regiment of the Missouri Infantry Volunteers
While researching Thomas J. McClurken's civil war involvement, I also found the service cards for four other McClurken's. The service cards are now available for: Cyrus F. S., David W., James R., John C., and Thomas J. McClurken. All five of these men enlisted on August 1, 1861, in the 10th Regiment of the Missouri Infantry Volunteers. One was discharged for disability, three died while serving, and the other was wounded in action. Links to these service cards were added to the Outline Descendant Report of Thomas McClurken (1748 - 1845) or where referenced in biographies. These cards were located online in the Missouri State Archives Soldiers' Records. Only three of the five are listed in the Illinois State Archives. However, all five are listed, with minimal detail, in the National Park Service database.
