I haven't seen a post from @M. Warren for quite a while. If you don't mind what is the story about the two above deserters as guerrillas?Admittedly, I didn't check the muster rolls of all the regiments with Stoneman. If the ringleaders of the gangs were deserters of the 10th Michigan Cavalry, this may be them :
Private Michael Wade Company F, deserted 4/30/11865 at Wilkesboro, NC.

Private Mitchell Siggins, Company A, as opposed to Simmons. Deserted 8/1/1864 at Strawberry Plains, Tennessee. Three men named Simmons were in the 10th Michigan, but all three mustered out in Knoxville on June 11 , 1865.
