Mary Ann Herren and Revis Houston Adams are both in their parents household in 1860 census, in close proximity to one another and must have married shortly after since their son Timothy was born in Feb 1863 and the attacks were in Jan 1864. It is Dabner's household in 1870 with Mary Ann and seven yr old Timothy Adams--they having married 15 Oct 1868. Mary Ann was a good deal younger than Dabner he had long been married, coming from TN but his wife died in 1866. Two of Dabner's daughters married two of Mary Ann's brother, so all of these families are intimately intertwined.
Dabner's two sons were in the 4th Rgt MO Infantry Co B. One died probably of measles but the other, my gr gr grandfather, survived the measles hospitalized 1862 in Little Rock and was active during the war. Although I am only now trying to piece together what/when and where--it appears to be not at all straight forward, he was arrested had to put up bond and take oath then was captured later and pressed into service as a teamster at that point for the Union. Dabner stayed in the Howell Valley area through out the war, in what was apparently a small enclave just outside West Plains. He visited the evacuated West Plains town not long before it was burned to the ground and is briefly quoted on that visit in a number of later articles etc about the Civil War in Howell. He may also have been involved in activities confederate sympathetic to the confederacy, similar to Benoni and I am interested in learning more.
I was interested in John Russell's reply of March 21st in this thread because he mentions the letter from Major JB Kaiser identifying confederate sympathizers--my ancestress Mrs. Warthen in Pulaski Co. is listed. I would like to learn more about this info--since I am new to this site, please advise if there is a proper way to pursue this line of questioning since it is going off of the Adams line.
Thanks --this appears to be a great site.
