Wheeling Intelligencer
June 21, 1862

Trophies.--The cap, coat and gun of Andy Dusky, the guerrilla Captain, of whose doings in Wirt, Calhoun and adjoining counties most of our readers have heard, and who was recently killed at Big Bend on the Little Kanawha, are hanging up in Adjutant General Samuel's office, this this city. The Dusky family are a determined set of rebels. The old man, George Dusky, was sent to the Penitentiary from this city the other day, having been convicted, with other of his associates, of robbing the United States mail. Another son George, was captured some months ago but succeeded in escaping from this city, and has not been heard of since. There is also a daughter, a young woman of considerable intelligence who is scarcely less defiant than her brothers. The Duskeys are the ruling spirits of the section of country in which they reside.
