Vincent Marmaduke (1831-1903)

He was a member of Missouri's constitutional convention in 1861. A pro-unionist like his father, he was accused of disloyalty and banished to the south in 1863. He enlisted in the Confederate Army and served as an artillery officer. He transferred to the Confederate Secret Service and traveled abroad purchasing arms and ammunition for the South. He returned to the states in 1864 and was arrested for the Camp Douglas Conspiracy, a plot to release and arm Confederate POWs in order to attack Chicago. He was exonerated and returned to a quiet life on the family farm in Saline County Missouri.

In Missouri, villages are municipalities which incorporated with a population under 500. If the population is larger than 500, it must incorporate as a city. If the population increases beyond 500 after incorporation, a vote may be held to change to a city government, but it is not automatic. In many cases, villages are called "towns", but under Missouri statutes, "towns" do not exist. Villages are governed by a board of trustees.

Pinhook Missouri is said to have been founded by sharecroppers in the 1930s. The largely African-American colony was expanded to nearly 250 people at one time. During the summer of 2011 the Mississippi began to flood and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers blew the Birds Point-New Madrid levee to save Cairo, Illinois from flooding. This caused Pinhook to flood and everyone there to lose their homes.
