De Morse's Rgmt, 29th Texas Cavalry

1. L. D. Hendricks (Lorenzo Dow Hendricks)
2. Williams Barnes (James William "Little Bill" Barnes)
3. William H. Payne

My Great Grandmother (Katie Benson Hendricks) was originally married to #2 James William Barnes.
James Wiliam Barnes was a very close friend to #1 Lorenzo Dow Hendricks.
They both joined up and served together till the war was over.
#2 James William Barnes was "killed by white men" in 1880, whereupon my GGrandmother married #1 Lorenzo Dow Hendricks, in Brooken, Choctaw Nation, I.T.
#3 William H. Payne was my GGrandfather (also served in the Choctaw & Chickasaw Rifles) and joined up with #1 and #2 and served together with them.

In other words, my GGrandmother, Katie, was first married to James Barnes and when he was murdered she married his friend Lorenzo D. Hendricks. Of this marriage Francis M Hendricks was born.
In the meantime, William H. Payne begat Walter Harrison Payne who married Francis M Hendricks upon whose union in marriage (tribal marriage) was born my Father Howard Payne.

#'s 1, 2 and 3 and their wives and many of their children are buried in the little town cemetery of Crowder, Pittsburg, Oklahoma. This little town was once referred to as Canadian Township, Crowder Town, Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, and is located just north of McAlester, Oklahoma.

If any of y'all have any info on these folks, please let me know.
