I have copies of old documents and pictures of a relative of mine that I have been told rode with Quantrill and was involved in maybe the first daylight bank robbery in this country as an early member of the James gang when Jesse was recovering from wounds received at the end of the war and was not present. His name was Redmond Munkers. He was shot to death by Federal agents at the front door of his Mother's home while She was trying to protect him. This happened somewhere in Missouri before the James gang became so famous. His name does not appear on the Quantrill roster and I cannot find much information on him. Do you have anything?

My maiden name is Munkers, and my father told us Redmond was a distant uncle of ours. We live in Kansas City, MO. I wish I had more information about him as well, if I find any I will post it.
