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. R. D. McCamish submitted this claim (No. 46) for damages and losses to a hotel, storehouse, and other property on September 4, 1856. James Lane commanded the troops that did the damage to Mr. McCamish's property. Mr. McCamish lived in Johnson 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.
