    He was called George by his family. He had red hair, green eyes and was 5'6" tall. But his size didn't lessen respect for him because he always carried a pistol and a whip. A daughter said he was a Baptist, a Democrat, and a Confederate, in that order.
    He acted on his Southern sympathies and helped hide the Oregon County records in caves to protect them from being destroyed by the Union Army.
    Oregon County was a dangerous place to live during the Civil War and only the tough survived. A common practice at the time was for roaming bands of "bushwhackers" to ride up to a house and shoot or hang any man who did agree with their side in the Civil War. George also was dragged from his home, shot and left for dead. George and his family lived near Thomasville, but for a time took his family to Rolla for safety and joined "Bloody Bill Anderson." He finally left Bill Anderson because he didn't agree with his raids into Kansas.
    George also met and became friends with the outlaw Jesse James who would sometimes stop at George's home and visit when he was in the area. In fact, his sister, Sarah and her husband, Ambrose Maulding, moved away to Eureka Springs, Ark about 1868 because they wanted to get their sons away from the influence of the James Gang who frequented the area, especially her brother, George?s farm.

    Oregon County Democrat, Oct. 7, 1904:
    "In memorium -
    John G. Huddleston, or uncle George as he was better known, was born Oct. 5, 1828, near Thomasville, Missouri, and was married June 3, 1860 to Mary A. Gum, and to this union was born nine children, seven living, two deceased. The writer visited him during his last illness and was present when he died. He was converted just a short time before he died and told me he was willing and ready to go. The family then came into the room and he told his son Amos that he felt that he was all right and then his companion asked him if he thought he was all right, and he said he did. She then asked him what he wanted, and he said that he wanted brother, Jim Floyd and Pat Giles to make his coffin and Brother Whitehead to preach his funeral, and in a short time he passed away to return here no more till the resurrection morning. His funeral was preached at his home near Thomasville, Missouri, by the writer from Eccl. 12:18, and a long funeral procession followed to the Union Hill Cemetery where his remains were laid to rest on Oct. 1, 1904. If he had lived till the 5th day of Oct., he would have been just 76 years old. He leaves a companion, and seven children to mourn their loss of him. May the Lord bless them all."
    (L.L. Whitehead)
