Bushwhackers in Clay County

Let me try this again... Being in Colombia, South America, yaŽll are my only hope here.

Does anyone know about a bushwhacker raid into Clay County post 1862? I have found that several of my family members were killed in a raid there but have no details. I also suspect Sanford Marion Mann, either decided to go bushwhacking on his own after this, or he rode off with the attackers (he was married to a Yankee from IL). Is there ANY light here? With or without Sanford, any information would greatly advance my knowledge of the family in the area.

Thank you or in the lingo
Gracias YaŽll:
