I have information on the Doxey family. Here is a representation of the information I have. If you know more or can add to this please write to me. Also I would be glad to share more of what I have. John Daugherty Doxey and his wife Rebecca "Betsy" Doxey moved from St. Mary's County, MD, to Chariton County, MO. They arrived in about 1814 with their infant daughter Eliza "Kitty" Conway Compton. They settled on a farm in Keytesville where the Doxey bridge now stands. Subsequently they added

I do not believe that the book by Donald L. Gilmore The Civil War on the Missouri-Kansas Border should not be recommended as a good book on the CW in the West. Bad reviews and poor history. Start with Jay Monaghan and The Civil War on the Western Border, even though it is 40+ years old it is still a good start. Some other good books on the CW in Missouri and the West: Albert Castel, General Sterling Price and the Civil War in Missouri; Elmo Ingenthron, Borderland Rebellion; William Piston, W

Members: If you want to read the same old re-hashed pro-union perspective that Quantrill and his guerrillas were evil villains, then by all means avoid Don Gilmore's book. You might as well only read William E. Connelley's book, "Quantrill and the Border War," because Monaghan, Castel, Leslie, Nicols and virtually every other author who has followed, has blindly used Connelley's flawed work as the gospel truth. However if you want to read a well researched history by an award winning

Hi Sean, With a name like yours, have you an Irish connection? I have been trying to write about the same subject. It is based on my ggrandfather who came down from Newport Ky with Gen Tom Sweeny and fought throughout the war with 1st Mo Lt Artillery M and 2nd US lt Ay F, ended up in Vancouver WA and returned to ireland in 1967. Just wondering if you have an Irish angle? Michael A MacNamara, Newgarden, Castleconnell, County Limerick. (061) 37 74 16/ (086)225-9092 ----- Original Message ----- From:
6. Re: [MO-CW] James/Quantrill at Wilson's Creek [1]
Jesse was too young. He didn't start riding with Bloody Bill Anderson until sometime in 1863. Frank James, Jesse's brother, fought at Wilson's Creek as did William Quantrill, John T. Hughes, J. O. Shelby and Coleman Younger. Frank was captured and received a field parole. He was to return home and not enlist on either side. He was thrown in jail at home because he bragged about how the Confederates won at Wilson's Creek. He joined Quantrill soon after. It is my opinion that Frank didn't think he
7. [MO-CW] A Few Questions [1]
Hi everyone, I'm writing as novel set in Missouri during the Civil War and I had a few rather technical questions I hope someone can answer. I want to get everything as historically correct as I can, although of course the main characters will be fictional. 1. How exactly did bushwhackers cut telegraph wire? Were the wires hanging low enough that a man on horseback could cut them? Or did they have to shimmy up a pole? I suppose they could just chop down the poles, but that would be time-consuming and n
8. [MO-CW] Military research at the National Archives [1]
Hello. My name is Kelley -- I recently completed my Masters degree and am going to law school this fall here in Washington, D.C. School is expensive and I could use some extra money to pay for tuition and loans, so I am offering to do military research at the National Archives (service files, pension files, etc). Generally, a request for this kind of information takes the Archives several months, at a minimum, to process. I can retrieve them much faster and also give you someone to interact with instead

Claiborne, I know of Gilmore's book, but not familiar with Paul Peterson's. What is the name? Let's not forget Bruce Nichol's books. I am a person interested in reading about this conflict, as I have ancestors who were there, and I find the knowledge received from several of you as contributor's to this 'blog' to be as valuable as many books. I feel honored to read the many contributions of persons on this site who are authors of these outstanding books. Thank you. JoAnne On Jan 7, 2008, at 1

12. Re: [MO-CW] Pensions [1]
Confederate soldiers only got state pensions and then in many instances only years after the war. Some states did not give pensions until the 20th century. Basically, only the Confederate states gave pensions but Missouri also gave them as well. I think Oklahoma did also. But if the ex-Confederate lived in a Union state he did not get a pension. The pensions came from the states, not the Federal government. **************Biggest Grammy Award surprises of all time on AOL Music. (http

Hey Sean: Caps not have rifle and pistol size-- also latter C W had cartige type weapons. Shotgun and lots of 22 rifle used often. Check the dates of the 22 when introduced. Have You read The Civil War In Missouri Day by Day 1861 - 1865" by Carolyn M Bartels? Interesting Book of events. This writer Family from the S Mo Ozarks. Also good Book "Quantrell By Donald R Hale"? I have read where The Raiders used pistols and had many extra loaded cylinders and changed as they rode into the battles.

Here's what my two preferred texts say: Yeatman's "Frank and Jesse James: The Story Behind the Legend" says that FRANK James saw action at Wilson's Creek as a member of Price's State Guard.

Martha, while men with know-how may have rendered medical aid on those battlefields, actual designations as surgeon for a unit was limited to persons the commander was satisfied were professionally qualified in the traditional sense. I have one of those, a great-great grandfather who was Surgeon in the 1st Northeast Mo. Cav, and then also in the 4th Mo. Cav., with his home being in Newark, Knox County.? By luck, I now have his diploma and admission cards to his classes at St. Louis Medical College in 1849

The Gilmore book is worthy, and more.? A few of the reviews are predictably sour.

Paul R Peterson: Quantrill of Missouri; the making of a guerilla warrior. My wife gave it to me for Christmas. Peterson is a Special Forces type. He is quite pro-Quantrill. I had ancestors both in Cass County, Missouri, and just outside of Lawrence, Kansas. My personal opinion is that my Confederate ancestors suffered more from Quantrill's actions then my Union ancestors. Those in Cass County lost everything. Those in Eudora suffered much less.

Both Aliza and Herman died in Missouri. Herman died May 1965 Aliza died unknown I am interested perhaps you can pull an obituary or provide any descendants of this family branch
