Uncle John

I found another picture of my great, great, great uncle John McCorkle, the scout and sniper that rode with William Quantrill and the Missouri Partisan Rangers. The picture is copyrighted so the site will not let me copy the image. Here is a link to a picture of good 'ol Uncle John. My family hero, that rode under a black flag of no quarter. He and his companions adopted the black flag after Johns sister, my great, great, great aunt was killed in the infamous Kansas City Jail Collapse in which Charity McCorkle was killed. This was also the impetus for the Lawrence Kansas raid. The man body of the preceding link is from my uncle's book "Three Years With Quantrill".
