The Daily Dispatch: October 10, 1863., [Electronic resource], The Sufferings of the border Missourians. (search)
our's time would have commenced their weary wanderings in search of a home. It consisted of Benjamin Potter, aged 75; John S. Cave, aged 50; William Hunter, aged 47; David Hunter, aged 35; William C. Tate, aged 30; Andrew Owsley, aged 17, and Martin Rice and his son. While thus engaged in loading their wagons with such effects as they supposed would be most useful to them, a detachment of Kansas troops, (said to be part of the Kansas 9th, though this may be a mistake,) under command of Lieut.-Colonel Clark and Capt. Coleman, came up and took them all prisoners. After a little parleying, Mr. Rice and his son were released, and ordered to leave, which they did, of course. They had not gone much over three-fourths of a mile before they heard firing at the point at which they had left the soldiers with the remaining prisoners. In a short time the command moved on, and the wives and other relatives of the prisoners rushed up to ascertain their fate. It was a horrid spectacle.
