I found this information tonight. It does not verify the information I wanted information about, but the names all fit. This William may be a cousin or an uncle to George T. Hignight. The Chris Madison, of course is Chris Madsen. Both men were U.S. Deputy Marshals.
Thanks to anyone who might have been helping in my search. Now I need to get back to the family member and repeat what I have seen.
