Report of H.L. Strickler, Commissioner to Audit Claims of Citizens of the Territory of Kansas, contained in the U.S. Congressional Serial Set of congressional and executive documents. Robert A. Edwards submitted claim #221 for losses and damages suffered at the hands of James Lane's men under the command of Captain Jameson in August and September, 1856. His list was detailed and included livestock, furniture, food, and household goods. He lived in Shawnee County. Each claimant had to submit an itemized list and have two witnesses attest to the losses claimed. Even though many of these claims were approved for payment, no funds were ever appropriated or distributed.
