Here is most of it. Also I think Chronister was from Reynolds County
A short time after Lieutenant McHenry returned to Pilot Knob, he made a drive to Logan Creek and came to the Hugh Chitwood farm. The road ran west past the house and just west of the house.
A wagon to haul their booty was stopped there..
The Federals occupied the house, floor, all that was to spare, and the entire porch for sleeping quarters, and while sleeping peacefully, two bunches of Shannon County Jayhawkers..twelve in all. One bunch consisted of Alex Chilton, Joe Butler, Sam Nesbit, Geo. H. Davis, Chas. F. Chilton. The other bunch was headed by Wm Chronister. They visited the Federal camp and led away 24 good horses to a safe distance and resolved to go back and kill some of them, so Captain Chronister and nine others were making their way up to a level with the porch floor to open fire on them. Alex Chilton and Joe Butler were passing the wagon and Chilton stepped over the wagon tongue and tapped it with his heel. The little red-haired, freckle- faced, butcher that said he liked to shoot prisoners down to see them kick, was sleeping under the wagon. The heel tap on the tongue awakened him and he crawled from under the wagon and asked, “who come there?”
Mr. Butler replied with a shot, killing him instantly. The shot waked the soldiers and they began to shoot in all directions. Captain Chronister and the other men had reached the desired position and after firing several shots at them, they fled. The result of the raid was that the Federals were minus their butcher and the rebels were ready to start to a southern horse market with 24 good horses.
