In 1864 New Florence in Montgomery County was New Florence. The Partisans under Arch Clements and consisting of the Hill Brothers, Berry Brothers, Gooley Roberts (these are verified) and perhaps 15 others hit Danville and burned the town killing at least six people. They then continued east along the Boones Lick road stopping at the Sylvester Baker house and attempted to fire it. Continuing on they burned the rail depot at New Florence and the water tower and depot in High Hill, before continuing east and maybe maybe not burning a siding east of Saint Charles.They then reversed course and crossed the Missouri somewhere west of Hermann two days later.
Bloody Bill was killed in Orrick and given the time constraints it's highly doubtful that he could have made the Danville Raid. There are also accounts placing him in Glasglow by Union POW's on the 14th, the day of raid. So it's doubtful he was there.
Most "accepted" accounts of Danville come from the Drapers, who were well known Radical Republicans as were most of the members of the 9TH msm Regt. of Cavalry and are dubious in their accuracy. Daniel Draper was prior to the war the editor of the Danville Herald a Radical Republican Newspaper in Danville and was involved in a shooting with Nate Patton , a man who had changed his alligence in 1860.
