By the way Karen, there is quite a bit of the Babcoke/Wright saga on the Miller Co. Mo. site. Also of the Curtman Island Massacre & Battle of Kaiser, Mo. which involved some of the same militiamen involved in the Wright family killings. Of course, their site is pro-Federal in their views and mine are the opposite, but in reality there was atrocities on both sides, in a nutshell, the whole war was a terrible tragedy! Regards, Garrett
|Garrett Gabel||RE: William M. Harrison|
Hello Karen and thank you for your reply. First of all, I may have put my cart ahead of the horse! There is no way your Wm. Harrison was old enough to have a son (Albert) fighting in the military in the Civil War! However, I took a second look at the Miller & Camden Co. Mo. Militia muster rolls of the special order of Mo. Gov. Fletcher "to capture or kill organized gangs of bushwhackers in Phelps Co. Mo." and see there are TWO Wm. M. Harrisons. The other Wm. H. Harrison I couldn't locate on Findagrave. Maybe one of them is a nephew to the other one? I got ambitious the other day and went to looking up in Miller & Caden counties of Mo. all 80 militiamen that were on the militia muster roll on Findagrave and found about 1/3 of them, most of them were definite as they had Gov. issued military stones, a few of my find aren't conclusive, but plausible asper age, lived in the same area all their life, etc. I am friends with Larry & Karen Smith who are members of the Miller Co. Hist Soc. and may ask them. They recently were visited by a gr.great grandson of the infamous Col. T.J. Babcoke who led the militia to Phelps Co. mo. and he is planning on donating some material to that society in the near future.If you are desiring a copy of my book; "History of Yancy Mills, Mo." (half of it consists of the Babcoke/Wright saga), please send $25.00 plus $5.00 for S&H to Garrett Gabel 18720 State Route T, Newburg, Mo. 65550 The book is hardbound, 300 plus pages, consists of local Civil War history, old newspaper articles, obituaries, photographs, etc. The Babcoke/Wright saga is an unbelievably sad and controversial story! Thank you, Garrett

Hello, Would you happen to have a photo of Wm. M. Harrison?? I have an obvious great interest in him as he was involved in going along with Col. T.J. Babcoke's command after bushwhacking atrocities in Miller county which included Wm. Harrison's son's death; Albert Harrison. The controversial Wright family killings in Phelps Co. Mo. in August 1865 was the result. I wrote all about this in "History of Yancy Mills, Mo" book in 2011. Wm. Harrison's testimony is documented.

Thank you for the transfer of John Monden's memorial. It is kind of you to do that. I'll get working on filling out his bio. We're all more than just a name on a stone. And Happy New Year to you! - Jim
|Janet Personette||RE: Saathoffs|
You are so welcome. I appreciate what others do for me so I try to 'pay it forward' for others.
I looked for Albert Davis' gravestone but did not find it. It may be there, I just may have missed it. There are some phone numbers you can probably call to see if he even has a marked grave. They are...483-2504, 483-2883, and 483-4637. Good luck.

Hi again, Bob Eppinger was married to my Aunt Jo. I think the Bandy's are his family. Are we shirttail relatives? Kim
