General Note: The elder brother of Harpers Ferry raider Jeremiah G. Anderson wrote Hinton to provide information on his brother's activities in Kansas Territory, beginning in "June or July 1857," when he settle in northern Bourbon County. J.G. Anderson was actively engaged in free-state activities in southern Kansas, including efforts to defy the bogus authority through the establishment of what was called a "Squaters court." (According to a January 29, 1860, letter--also in this folder--from another brother, John Q. Anderson of Eddyville, Iowa, brother Harrison was still living in at Little Osage, KT, and he had "frequently entertained" John Brown.)
