"On September 14, 1867, James W. Stephens, Constable and ministerial officer of Saline township, was concerned in the preservation of the peace by quieting a certain riot and affray then being had in the town of Pleasant Mount. He[sic] was assaulted. obstructed, resisted and opposed in the exercise of his duties by William and Jacob Gilleland, JOhn CmClure, and William Stubblefield. Constable James W. Stephens said, "On the mentioned day, at the town of Pleasant Mount, Jacob and William Gilleland, John McClure, William Stubblefield, and others were in the grocery. James Agee came out swinging. I hollered, Men, don't fight! I saw William Stubblefield draw a revolver. I caught the revolver and wrung it from his hand. Stubblefield said, Alright, then, I'll use some cold steel! He drew a knife from his boot leg. I called on the boys around me for help. I caught the knife by the bone, and held on until help was given me. He resisted until the knife was forced from his hand." " I then endeavored," the Constable said, "to part James Agee and James BUster, who were fighting. JOhn McClure said they should ot be aprted. He shoved me back. I was struck a hard likc in the face by someone unknown/ John McClure held a revolver in his hand." Captian W. T. Franklin saw William Stubblefield drawing a revolver. He ran to assist. About the time he reached the porch, the revolver was taken Stubblefield swore there was some cold steel he could get use. He pulled up his pant's leg, drawing a large bowie knife. "I made a lunge to get it," Captain Franklin said, "but some person unknown to me hit me on the nose, and I fell backward. When I awoke, Buster and Agee were fighting, but were parted. In a short time they were at it again! Stubblefield pulled a dirk and drew it up as if to strike someone." "The Constable came up behind him Captian Franklin continued,. "He grabbed the knif, and with assistance from others, took it away. The Constable then commanded all to assist in parting Buster and Agee, who were fighting, but John McClure stood around and over them with a revolver in his hand. He said he would shoot any man who tried parting tiem/ The Constable went to the other side, and William Gilleland struck him on the shoulder, then on the chin, which felled him to his knees. Harrison said, "Billy, what in hell have you got against me? The noise of the fight," Franklin concluded, "Could be heard for three-quarters of a mile." When the disturbance started, Pinkney S. Miller was standing on Dr. Rial M. Hargett's front porch. He started running down the street, but stopped 50 or 60 yards from Fanklin's store when he noticed William Stubblefield with a revolver in his hand. As Stubblefield drew up the weapon Pinkney heard the Constable yell, "Men, take that revolver!" The Constable, assisted by two men wrung the revolver from his hand. here, Pinkney S. Miller noticed Agee and Buster fighting, The Constable and William Stubblefield scuffled on thes street. Stubblefield had a knife. "Myself, and others, went to his assistance," Pinkney said, "and took the knife from Stubblefield/ The the Constable said Gentlemen. I summons all of you to aprt these men! The Constable, myself, and the others ran up to part them, but were ordered to stop by John McClure, who pushed the Constable backward. He then drew a revolver on me. He ordered me not to come any closer. William Gilleland was also ordering peple not to touch the parties fighting. He struck Wesley Harrison who was endeavoring to part the. Gilleland struck the Constable, aprting Stephen's beard with his fist, knocking him backward." George Shipley said, "Constable James Stephens summoned everyone to come and assist with the taking of a knife from William Stubblefield. I sprang from my bhorse and went to his assistance. After we had taken the knife, STubblefield struck me in the back of the head, and things flew before my eyes.' Wm G. Clark was standing about 30 feet from the parties fighting. HE noticed William Stubblefield's knife had a kind of bone handle with some brass about it, with a blad six inches in length. He saw Stubblefield strike George Shipley somewhere about the head. Wesley Adcokc noticed the Constable, in trying to separate the parties fighting, was pushed backward by John McClure, the William Gilleland struck him a terrible lick in the whiskers. Thomas Shelton said, "There is some old grudge between these men from the late affair between the states. William Gilleland is an own uncle to my wife, and John McClure is married to my wife's aunt. The bous are going to have to bury the past but when influenced by spirits, men seem unable to forget." (7)

The foregoing petitioners represented to the Circuit Court that the new Constitution of Missouri disqualified them from voting at any election or holding any office of honor or trust; but having conducted themselves in every way as good and lawful citizens, they wanted their rights, privileges and immunities as Citizens of the United States, and the State of Missouri, fully restored to them. THe Circuit Court decreed the following petitioners the exercise of Citizenship without taking the oath of loyalty as prescribed by the Consitution for:..William T. Franklin under the call and authority of Governor C.F. Jackson, joined the Missouri State Guard on June 16, 1861; then entered U.S. military service on August 14, 1864; honarably discharged on March 21, 1865." (8)
