Hello Brian,
For records you might contact the Missouri National Guard. They have a web site. I'm sure after action reports were filed. Have you tried the Missouri State Historical Society? All I've seen is in the newspapers.
Lawrence Chieftain, 19 April 1906..........story about the lynchings....."Sheriff Horner requested Gov. Folk send militia to his assistance and late Sunday night two companies, one from Pierce City and one from Aurora arrived and went into camp at the jail."
I'm sure there is more in the springfield newsapapers of the time, but I don't know how much detail the would have about the companies.
Good luck,
Gary Daughtrey
