Margaret Martha Carney Oliphant
Wife of John Newton Oliphant, a notorious Confederate guerrilla fighter. Margaret was denounced by a neighbor in Johnson Co., MO, for giving aid and comfort to "bushwhackers." Earlier, her house had been burnt down, reportedly by local Union militia authorities, while her husband Newton was away fighting Federal troops in the countryside.
