Re: Pres. Harry S. Truman
Yes, Harry S (no period behind the S) Truman had at least 2 men, that I know of, who were Confederates. William Young, son of Solomon and Hariette Louise (Gregg) Young, served under Upton Hayes. Solomon & Hariette were the grandparents of Harry S Truman. Redlegs stole the family silverware, killed over 100 hogs, and burned his barns and haystacks. This occurred after Hariette had fed the men. She later sued the U.S. Government and received $3,800! Young rode with Hayes, Virgil Miller, Cole Younger, Dick Yeager & Boon Muir in August of 1862. Sources: Joanne Eakin & Donald Hale, "Branded as Rebels" page 484; 1860 Missouri census records, Jackson County, Independence; John N. Edwards, "Noted Guerrillas" page 94.
The other man was James J. "Jim Crow" Chiles. Actually, he was an in-law, his wife was a daughter of Solomon Young. Source: Joanne C. Eakin & Donald Hale, "Branded As Rebels" page 71.
Since Hariette was a Gregg, she may have been related to William Gregg, who rode with Quantrill for awhile.
