“ My great grandfather rode with Quantrill “ Let’s look at that statement did he really ride with Quantrill. When we hear that a family member rode with him we start looking for a list of Quantrill’s men in hoping to find that family member on it but when we don’t we may think the family story is not true. But hold up he may have after all you have to remember that there was more then one guerrilla gang. Quantrill’s gang had as little as 60 men and no then 300, most of the times 125. But when all the other guerrilla’s got together as a group it would be as high as 6,000 some say 10,000. When the guerrilla’s banded together Quantrill was the Commanding Officer most of the times. You have to remember he was a very fames man and to say you rode with him will that was something. Grandpa may have belonged to other guerrilla gang like Blooded Bill Anderson but when they group up with Quantrill he would be in Command, so grandpa’s statement was true after all. So if you hear that great grandfather rode with Quantrill and can’t find him you will have to look at all the other guerrilla gang’s.
The names of the men below all rode with Quantrill and many were guerrilla leader’s and had their own gang’s. I also have 140 names of Quantrill’s Missouri Regiment when he was in the C. S. A. army.
Most of these names below are Surnames only I have no first names.
