In Lincoln County, Kansas, 1864 and 1869
Story of Those Killed, With a History of the Monument Erected to Their Memory in Lincoln Court House Square, May 30, 1909
LINCOLN, KANSAS THE LINCOLN SENTINEL PRINT
In preparing- this little book, I have had in view one purpose: the correction of former errors in the names of victims, and in the location of the events for which the Pioneer Monument stands. The public records have been my main guide, supplemented by such information as can now be had from the pioneers and scouts. It has necessarily required a good deal of work and research to find out what happened here forty-six years ago, but I have good proof that my version is in every respect correct.
I am under obligations to Hon. Thomas Anderson of Salina, for most of the information of 1864, and to Probate
Judge Supple, ,also of Salina, for courtesies extended in giving me an opportunity to copy the Moffitt brothers
administration records; to the Clerk of the Court of Junction City for aiding me in getting facts from records
there; also to J. J. Peate and Waldo Hancock of Beverly; to Ferdinand Erhardt, Martin Hendrickson and A. Roenigk
of Lincoln Center, and to Christian Christiansen of Denmark, and to a few others. To all of you I extend my thanks.
