Re: confederate bushwhackers in north Arkansas

In your work on....

"COX, BATSON WHITEHURST: C. S. 3rd Arkansas Infantry Battalion Capt/Capt.
Enlisted Jun 1861 at Clarksville. Age at enlistment: 45. Company disbanded Sep 1861. Killed 13 May 1864 in Johnson Co., Arkansas. “Cox was shot at his mill, dragged to his home and thrown on the floor. (Arkansas Gazette)” Born 25 Jan 1804 in Virginia. Age listed as 46 on 1850 Johnson Co., Arkansas Census. Buried in Union Cemetery, Johnson Co., Arkansas. Father of Harvey S., Jasper N. and William B. Cox. Father-in-law of John H. Howard".

My question, I desperately would like to read and have a copy of the actual account posted in the Gazette.
How do I go about finding the article......please!
Not only for more insight, but for my piece of mind, and "documentation".
I've gotten 3 accounts of his death. Most intriguing, one account he knew his killer, and it could have been a family member.
TY for all your great work!
