I'm looking for the C C EDMONDS listed below accused of robbery in 1864.

Also looking for his assumed sister-in-law Ruth (Ruthie) TITTLE <1840-?> and unknown relation Sarah Ann TITTLE.

Apparently he didn't go to prison. He enrolled in Company K, 7 Oct 1864, Mt. Vernon, Lawrence County, MO. Maybe he was given the option of joining up or going to the pen.

If this is Calvin C. EDMONDS (1823-<1908>) we think he married Lucinda TITTLE in 1859 in Barry Co, MO.

He is also known to have lived in Washington Co., AR in 1860, Barry Co., MO in 1870, and through 1900 census in Wright Co., MO.

Background is:

All leads appreciated. Thanks.
