Youthful Burford a Missou "Guerilla" in Civil War

Found this interesting tidbit:
From: "Citizens, Confederates,Bushwackers & Guerillas" by Joanne Chiles Eakin, 1995..."W.S. Burford, a citizen captured in Cape Girardeau Co. Missouri 12 October 1862, imprisoned at Myrtle <Street> Prison <St. Louis>; released on oath and bond 8 December 1862".

This was undoubtedly Winfield Scott Burford, b 20 July 1846, who was barely 16 years old when captured by Union troops who obviously suspected him of provided "comfort and aid to the enemy"...since his father Kendall Hawkins Burford was a Cape Girardeau druggist, he may have been supplying medicine to ill or wounded Confederates... Kendall Hawkins was the s/o Benjamin Wyatt, who was the s/o Rev Daniel Burford, who was the s/o Capt Phillip & Mildred Burford...I descend from Rev Daniel's bro Lt Philip Terrell Burford.
