James Pickens

50 Years after Quantrill's RaidJames Pickens Corel was born February 16, 1832. He is the youngest son of William Corel and Rebecca Oney.

I have many images to choose from for James P. because this is my ancestor. All of the images that I have will end up on the site, but I chose this photo that I just happened across while looking at the Bleeding Kansas website. I surfed around and ended up at the Watkins Community Museum and was excited to see a photo that is in the Library of Congress American Memory Collection. This image is from 1913 of the Survivors of Lawrence Massacre at semi centinnal [sic] mamoral [sic].
