George and John,
Thanks for your help! I am so interested because Braxton was buried in Benton County, ARKANSAS and his obit / write up of his death has him riding with Quantrill and participating at Lawrence. With the Mastersons in Lafayette, that's more than possible. However, I am hesitant on his age. Fifteen or sixteen is mighty young to be at Lawrence! I was also wondering if there is any knowledge of information of the Mastersons being guerrillas themselves or associating with them.
