Regarding his interview in Kansas City, Mo., with U.S. Marshal and Former Confederate General Joseph Orville (Jo) Shelby who told of his raids into Kansas before the Civil War and his estimates of the character of William Clarke Quantrill, John Brown (1800-1859), Henry Washington & Cole Younger, Frank & Jesse James, David Rice Atchison, Thomas Hart Benton (1782-1858), and Sterling Price. Shelby says Henry Younger was in every raid made into Kansas Territory by Missourians in force; with John W. Reid at the Battle of Osawatomie, Osawatomie, Kan., 1856; and a friend of Allen Wilkinson. Shelby believes the Younger sons were common thieves during and after the Civil War. Shelby has a poor opinion of Sterling Price's military ability but admired his private characteristics
