Joyce – are you familiar with the Turnbo Manuscripts? You will find the account of James Deshazo’s death in them. Your library may have a copy, but a faster way is to go to the website for the Greene County Library at Springfield, MO, and you will find the manuscripts on-line there. Has a built-in search engine, just type in the name wanted. The manuscripts are fascinating reading. Don’t remember the www address for the library, but If you have trouble finding the library on the web, or finding the manuscripts there, let me know and will look up the website and path.
Probably you already have this, but will mention that in 1860 James Deshazo attempted to obtain reparation for the property his son Allen took west - at the Mountain Meadows Massacre – 17 head of cattle, clothes, a violin. If you do not have this data, let me know. Also, the husband of Allen’s sister Millie Deshazo, Capt. James Town Hopper, once owned the Little Jersey Mill on Crooked Creek in Harrison, Arkansas. I remember this item because the mill was later owned, successively, by two of “my” Eli Frazier Graham’s sons-in-law- my great-uncles.
