John McCorkle
TitleJohn McCorkle
DescriptionCharcoal portrait of John McCorkle in suit coat, shirt, tie, and hat. The drawing is not signed but attributed to Anna Lee (Dillenbeck) Stacey. It appears that a small portion is missing at the bottom of the drawing.
Biographical NoteMcCorkle, born December 12, 1838, in Andrew County, Missouri, moved to a farm near Westport around 1846. In April 1861 he enlisted in Company A of the Missouri State Guards, but in August 1862 he became part of Quantrill's guerrillas. In 1865, McCorkle surrendered at Newcastle, Kentucky, along with George Wigginton and a Confederate Captain Stone. They were paroled. Some years later, O. S. Barton helped McCorkle write his memoirs, "Three Years with Quantrell [sic]," published in 1914. McCorkle lived in Howard County, Missouri, until he died in 1918.
