NOTE: The 40th was comprised of refugees from southwest Missouri who had remained neutral at the beginning of the war, only to have their homes and farms destroyed by partisans from both sides. These families walked to Rolla, Missouri to the Union Army headquarters for food and shelter. The men were mustered into the army and the women and children were placed on trains and taken to Jefferson Barracks, Missouri for housing until the end of the war.
Polly Noble Fields died January 31, 1865 at Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis, MO. She and Abe were parents of 7 children.
