Oregon County historical society...notice the reference to Quantrill's men. This is not to say that you are not referiing to the Husband of Huddleston and not Mary Crabtree.
“During the three-year period following the civil war, there were bands of outlaws who roamed the State. One such group, led by a man who had ridden with Quantrill, was Devil Dick Boze; who had hideouts in the hills of the Eleven Point Rover. Devil Dick Boze is thought to have used the Wilderness Area as one of his hideouts. His relatives owned and operated the Boze Mill where later a government still was located.
By 1868 this band had increased in numbers and daring to the point where the Oregon County court ordered a county militia to be formed (the majority of the militia were ex-Confederate soldiers).
After the muster of the militia, most of the outlaw band fled to Texas and Oklahoma territories, but Devil Dick Boze chose to make a last stand and was killed in a gun battle with the militia. The county awarded Captain Greer $1.50 to build Devil Dick’s coffin. He is buried in the old Spring Creek Cemetery.”
