"... A brother of Adolphus Musser, Sr. was Colonel Richard H. Musser, of Civil War fame, who served under Governor Jackson and General Price as colonel of the Ninth Missouri Infantry. He was judge advocate of the Third Division of the Confederate army and after the war practiced law in St. Louis with great success. He prosecuted several important cases before the International Joint Commission at Washington which had the settlement of the damage cases growing out of depredations committed by Mexicans against American citizens. The Mexican government was sued for the murder of General Parsons, Colonel Standish, and Colonel Conrow by Mexican citizens. Colonel Musser successfully prosecuted these cases and received as his fee the sum of $143,000."
