  From "Reunion In Death II: Gravesites of the Quantrill Men and the James Gang" by Duncan Hansen:
  "Duncan Hughes was born September 30, 1838. Place of his birth is unknown, but was from Danville, Missouri area prior to the war. Duncan served his cause in the Confederacy in Company K, 10th Missouri Cavalry. While serving, he sustained a shoulder wound and, it is stated, that he fought on. He surrendered on April 25, 1865 in Macon, Georgia.
  After the war, he settled down in Hugh, Arkansas where, while operating a large farm, he served as post master.
  Tragedy and sadness would mar his later years. His beloved daughter, Maggie, would commit suicide after an argument with her father.
  Duncan Hughes attended the 1903 Quantrill reunion in Independence, Missouri. In his lifetime, he maintained a close friendship with Hiram George, another former Quantrill follower."
