David, I received your other message through my linkedin page and added you to my contacts network there. If your grandmother was Patsy Creech, then yes, she is the one I received the Hobbs information from. Sorry to hear about her passing. She was a wonderful historian. Maybe you and I have met -- I'm trying to recall...was it Patsy's son or grandson (you?) who had the World War One museum set-up in the home basement?
At the time I had been in considerable contact with Patsy and personally met her in September 2000 when I was a featured speaker at the annual banquet of the Lincoln County Historical Society in Troy (My presentation subjects: Lincoln County and Pike County during the American Civil War; Lincoln County's Senator John B. Henderson, Author of the 13th Amendment that Freed the Slaves; and, Lincoln County's Col. James O. Broadhead, Missouri Provost Marshal General and First President of the American Bar Association).
A year or two later after I was in Troy I visited the Goslin's Lane site near Woodlandville in Boone County. The owner of the property at the time pointed out historical points of interest pertaining to the skirmish, and then gave me free rein to walk the property. It is possible, and perhaps likely the Federal dead from the skirmish are buried in what is now a horse pasture at the site.
I'll touch base further via email....
