This isn't much help, perhaps, but I noticed that an overwhelming majority of
those enlisting in the same company as Michael Smith, Co. B, 16th Iowa
Infantry, listed Davenport as their place of residence. Often men enlisting in the
same companies came from the same area. Many were also from Muscatine, but
most came from Davenport. Davenport is in Scott County, and is also on the
River. Have you checked any sources there?
