Oxford Bend, Arkansas

I was looking through some notes and came across some stuff on a skirmish at Oxford Bend. The following is all the official records say about it.

OCTOBER 28, 1862.- Action of Oxford Bend, White River, near Fayetteville, Ark.
Report of Major General Samuel R. Curtis, U. S. Army.
OCTOBER 29, 1862.
The Army of the Frontier is again successful. General Schofield dispatches from Fayetteville, Ark., that on yesterday, at daylight, Brigadier-General Herron, with the First Iowa and Seventh Missouri Cavalry, attacked a rebel camp 4 miles east of that place. Our force about 1,000; rebel force 3,000, commanded by Colonel Cravens. After a sharp engagement of an hour the enemy was completely routed, leaving all his camp equipage, &c., and a few wagons. Loss of the enemy, 8 dead on the field; our loss, 5 wounded, 1 mortally. General Herron pursued for several miles into the Boston Mountains.*

Any help would be appreciated.
