Name: Jody
From: Camden Point
I want to thank you for all you have done for the Pleasant Grove Cemetery. The Camden Point Baptist Church has a work day each spring to try to reclaim more of the Cemetery, but, without constant care the weeds and sprouts return quickly. Starting just this year, I have been trying to help with the mowing with my trusty push mower and a weed trimmer. Dreading how it would look when I returned from a 2 week vacation, I was in for a great surprise: the whole cemetery had been mowed on or about July 2nd, 2011--even parts previously untamed this growing season. It looked great! The weeds grow very fast, but there is hope. Thank you so much!
Sincerely, Jody

My great great Uncle was father of Black Triplett. He is mentioned on your site. Black and his friend, Gabriel Close, were murdered at the Bee Creek Bridge in Platte County, Mo. I have photos of their graves on the old farm property. I was the first of the Triplett line to actually visit their graves as the property is gated and has been for many yrs. I also have a letter written by Black's mother in which the Kuykendalls are mentioned. That also can be found on the above Triplett website.

Name: Tom Thomas
From: Jenks, OK
I found this historic site while searching for JCC Thornton, bushwhacker. My Thomas family which originates in Jefferson County, TN wound up in Buchanan, Platte and Harrison counties starting in the mid 1840's. One of my distant cousins, a John Callahan of Buchanan County, rode with JCC Thornton and was wounded in the groin in July 1864. He made to his uncle's home in Harrison County, MO where he was treated and then turned in to federal officials along with other cousins riding with him. He escaped but left several uncles holding the "bag" with federal forces. They were arrested, tried, paroled, banished, etc because of that.

John Callahan, branded a bushwhacker in July 1864 had signed a Federal Loyalty statement in 1863 declaring that he would not join, aid, abet, or support the insurrection in Missouri or elsewhere. I wonder if the violence that came from across the river from Kansas didn't help change his mind.

I still wonder how my entire ancestral family in Missouri escaped the war. One great uncle, James W Thomas, did ride off to join the rebs and disappeared, leaving a wife and 3 small children. My great grandfather, in early 20's at the time, doesn't show up in history at all yet survived to continue our family line. His brother, living in Sevier County, TN served the confederacy but was medically discharged for bad feet. He returned home to raise quite a line of descendents after the war.

Well executed website. I especially like the array of primary sources and historical studies you've marshaled on the site to counter the usual calumnies emanating from those who are educated in our government schools about what secession and the War Between the States was all about. I can't wait to read these documents.

If at first you don't secede, try, try again.

I'm distantly related to George W. Brashear. George was the son of George W. Brashear Sr. (died 1852) and his wife Casandana (Williams). The Brashears' lived in Howard Co., Missouri at the time of the war. His brother Uriah was also captured but survived the war.
