The Missouri in the Civil War Message Board


Most lists of Quantrill's men include George, Morgan T., Richard (Dick) and William Maddox as being affiliated with Quantrill.

A history of Jackson Co. says that Quantrill's men often camped on land that belonged Larkin Maddox, the father of those listed above.

Martin and Mary Foster were my ancestors and are shown living with the Maddox family in 1850. Martin was a veteran of the Mexican and family lore is that he was the slave overseer on the farm. The Fosters later lived in Kingsville and Gunn City, then moved to Nebraska in 1883.

My question is this: Is there any evidence that Martin Parmer Foster was a member of Quantrill's band?
