BARNETTE / BRANDON / MARION /
Looking for any info to prove a tale that says Mitchel Luke
MARION, a Civil War soldier, no doubt Confederate, was an
"outlaw" who rode with William QUANTRILL and then with Frank &
Jesse JAMES. From the Farrenburg/Barnes Ridge area. Mitchel
was age 35 in the 1860 census and was supposedly killed in 1876
around Farrenburg. Apparently, Mitchel appeared on Discovery in
"Old Outlaws of the West," but when I don't know.
Supposedly a member of the MARION family married into
the BARNETTE (Barnett?) family who had a store on Barnes Ridge
and the gang spent the night at the BARNETTE (Barnett?) home.
Marion's dtr, Columbia C., married Jesse SHY, and their
son had a SHY store in Farrenburg (I think). After Mitchel
died, later--Aug 15, 1892--Columbia married a Sam BRANDON of
LeSieur (probably LeSieur township).
Question is: how can I prove this tale? Do you
know anyone connected to these families whom I might contact?
