Charity McCorkle Kerr and Nannie Harris, relatives of William Quantrill's men. Killed in 1863 in the jail collapse. The jail was intentionally weakened by Union soldiers in many reports and collapsed; this killed 6 ladies,(all under the age of 20) and paralyzed a few more. Along with theft, murder of innocent civilians, torture by hanging, and many other atrocites daily perpetrated by Yankee soldiers intent on revenge, Quantrill finally realized the raid into Lawrence was necessary.
