Notes / Description: 

Plaintiff: Malinda & John Cox, Nelson & Sawyers Mynatt, Hugh Luthell, Thomas Howell. Hubbs sued for damages $10k from theft. It seems the Plntfs were acting as a gang, with a "headquarters" they retired to after robbing. Descriptions in testimony describe confusion caused by confederate soldiers camping in the area, & possibly beneficiaries of stolen goods. Testimony also describes captured "Indians" among those held by Mynatt, etc.
