Yes, interlibrary loan is a good method to examine any current book. I heartily recommdend that.
I didn't mention it before but the "Official Records" series 1, vol. 34, page 57 has this January 11, 1864 report from Captain Thomas Thomas, then commander (perhaps acting commander) at the Houston garrison:
"...On the 4th, I sent out a scout of 6 men, under command of Sergeant Dugan, Company G. They were out four days and succeeded in capturing 2 notorious bushwhackers and horse thieves, named, respectively, Jacob Rustin and John Inmon. The horses these men were riding were recognized as belonging to loyal citizens of this county, and upon proof I have delivered the horses to their respective owners. On the march to camp the prisoners attempted to make their escape by running, and were both instantly killed..."
Perhaps Sergeant Dugan's patrol started with some action south in Howell County that the captain did not mention.
