Kate King, In Fact and Fiction, introduced in 2015, began "to separate truth from fantasy, reality from assumption to stimulate expanded interest and increased scrutiny of all aspects of this most intriguing character with local and national historical importance." Immediately, the book led to the authenticating and re-attribution of an image long cited as Kate. The facts disproved former mis-identification. The untimely and unexpected death of co-author, Vicki Beck, put the book out-of-print. Virgil Hoftiezer continued research and located additional sources about Kate's life that he added to a new biography about Kate so that her story may continue to be available to the public. The story starts with 13-year-old Sarah Catherine King from Blue Springs, Jackson County, Missouri, who was with Quantrill until his 1863 murder. She lived nearly seven decades beyond Quantrill's death. 'Widowed' at 17, she became St. Louis, Missouri's well-known madam, "Kate Clarke." In 1881, after becoming a mother, she changed her name, location and profession, until resurfacing in 1898 as "Mrs. S. E. Batson." Her grandson became the prototype reporter in the television series, "Manhunt," based on his work in the San Diego Police Department. Kate ended up back in Blue Springs and died at the Jackson County Poor Farm under the name "Mrs. Sara Head." Even in death, her gravesite was disputed for more than 80 years. That mystery, too, is settled, in A Life After Quantrill: Kate King, A Biography.
