"The second murder during the war was that of Uncle Mark Harmon, early in 1862, by Confederate bush-whackers. He was an uncompromising Union man, and on that date attended a Union meeting at Poole's Prairie. He carried his gun, and while returning saw a party advancing, on whom he called to declare themselves friends or foes. In reply they fired on him and then hacked his body, inflicting several wounds." --pg. 36 McDonald and Newton County Sections of Goodspeed's History, 1888, reprinted May 1982 by the Newton County Historical Society.
