Thanks for the links. I've studied the James/Younger gangs some, and looked some into the genealogy of Jesse James' family.
I've certainly run across the name Allen Parmer, the brother-in-law of Jesse and Frank James.
Handbook of Texas Online - PARMER, ALLEN
However, I had never heard of young Minnie Gryder, so that was something new. I am not sure of the connection. I don't see any Gryder on my list of Quantrill's men. I don't know of any Gryders that were in the James/Younger gangs.
The James and Younger boys had some interesting female connections. The following is off the James/Younger Gangs Homepage.
