Seeking information on a James Childers, who ran a trading post in Chetopa Kansas in the years leading up to the Civil War. He was killed in 1862 by Union Troops seeking a stash of money. He was strung up several times until he finally gave up $2000.00. He was then strung up and killed. His body was left to rot and was eaten by pigs. He was married to a Cherokee woman, and may have been a mixed-blood Cherokee himself. I have a copy of Case's history of Labette County, KS, as well as the standard Kansas History, and several newspaper articles that quote from those sources. Looking for information that may be more obscure or for family history. Thanks!!
