Vanished Silent City reminds historian of important legacies
Historical Marker should be erected to honor Captain Jack Squires and his men, he says, giving hint of a great adventure by these Adair County patriots
By Chris Bennett
The story of Captain Jack Squires is a great Adair County story. My GGG Grand father Elisha Bennett, and his brothers Robert and Oliver went with Captain Jack to the City of Mexico, all three returned to Adair County after the war.
I have often wondered why Captain Jack and his men have no Historical marker, I can't imagine what an adventure they had traveling all the way to the City of Mexico, "whippin 'em", and then returning with that lead casket.
These are Adair County Stories that shouldn't be forgotten.
