Years ago my Great Aunt Orpha Teague, daughter of William
Teague and Malinda Bennet, told me the carpetbaggers came to their home. Her bother around the age of six was in bed with the measles. The carpetbaggers wanted money and the family had none. The carpetbaggers pulled her bother out of bed and tied his legs. Then tied him to a horse and pulled him til he died. The family moved away fearing the carpetbaggers would return. I have found the family living in Seminole I.N. Ok. I believe William worked in the oil
fields. The family returned to MO and several children moved to OK. I am trying to find the name of the child
killed. Her bother Benjamin died after drinking arsenic.
It is not known if it was suicide or murder. The Teagues lived in Taney Co, MO and many moved to OK.
Thank you for any imformation.
