After the murder of her father Jeptha, Susan went from Neutralist to Southern Sympathizer. In early June, while on their way home from Kansas City, Susan, her sister Armenia Selvey and Nephew Jeptha Selvey were arrested and confined to jail, the charges-aiding and abiding the enemy. On August 13, 1863, the jail where they and 14 others were confined collapsed, killing five and injuring the rest. The dead included Elizabeth and Armenia and the sister of William Anderson who later earned the nick-name "Bloody Bill" while avenging the deaths of his sister. Eight days later, William Quantrill raided and burned the the city of Lawrence, Kansas where the head of the Kansas Redlegs, who had wreaked havoc on Western Missouri for so long, resided. James Lane escaped, dressed as a woman and hiding in a cornfield.
