12. Samuel W. Whiteley

Samuel W. Whiteley "Sam", the son of Joseph and Sarah (Stapleton) Whiteley, was born in 1797, on the homestead that his father had purchased from John Crank in Russell County, now known as Scott County, Virginia.   The farm was located a few miles south of Nicklesville, Virginia on the waters of Copper Creek.  Samuel was raised along with his large family of brothers and sisters, being the eleventh child of fourteen.  His oldest brother, Thomas "Tom", was 21 years of age when Samuel was born.

About 1808, when Samuel was eleven years old, his father, Joseph, sold his household goods and slaves to the son, Joshua, sold his land in Virginia and loaded his wagon with six of the younger children and headed for White County in middle Tennessee.  The older boys did not go to Tennessee with them, but they soon migrated into Kentucky.  Thomas and Joseph had already married.

Samuel worked on his father's farm in White County, Tennessee, and had very little, if any, public education.  He signed his name on all legal papers with his 'X' mark, but his education seemed adequate for the times and he was known as an honest, but shrewd business man.  He never became an ordained Minister of the Gospel as three of his brothers, Thomas, Charles Booth and Isaac "Ike" but he made Land Deeds for church sites and established a number of churches during his life time.  It was a strict rule in his family that the Sabbath was a special day of worship and prayer.  His son, Andrew J., stated that every morning the family would kneel in prayer, and then the children would be asked to recite a verse in the Bible.  It has been said that although he could not read, Samuel could quote by memory any passage in the Bible.

On June 1, 1812, President Madison declared War on Great Britain.  On the 13th of August 1814 at the age of 16, Samuel rode his horse to the nearby town. of McMinnville, and enlisted as a Private in the 24th which later became 7th United States Infantry under Capt. Winston's Company for a period of five years.  His records state he was 16 years old; a farmer; born in Virginia.  He had blue eyes; fair complexion; light hair; and only 5 feet 6 inches in, height.  The "War of 1812" had seemed fruitless from the beginning but after three years, a treaty was formally ratified on 17 February 1815.  Samuel had enlisted for five years in the Service at 16 years of age, but after 16 months and the war had been over 10 months, Samuel received the following orders:

By order of Colonel McDonald.
To all whom it may concern:

Know ye that Sam'l Whitely a Private of Captain J. Robinson's Company Seventh Regt. of Infantry who was enlisted the 13th day of August 1814 for the period of five years, is hereby discharged from the Army of the United States being a minor.

Said Samuel was born in the State of Virginia is about Seventeen years of age, five feet nine inches high, fair complexion, blue eyes, fair hair, and by occupation when enlisted, a farmer.

Given at Fort Hawkins this 16th day of December, 1815

                                 Order signed by J. McDonald, Col 7th Infty

Samuel had grown three inches during his sixteen months in the Army.  Samuel later used his military records for a land claim in Arkansas and his second wife, Louvana, used it to receive a widow's pension #28910.

Samuel Whiteley married Lucy Maynard about 1817 in Tennessee.  She was the daughter of Martha (Lawrence) and Jesse Maynard (Mainard).  Jesse is said to have been a Cherokee Indian.  Lucy was born in N.C. about 1798.  On 18 September 1818, Samuel and Lucy's first child was born, a daughter called  "Martha", probably named for  Lucy's mother, Martha (Lawrence) Maynard.  Their first son, Charles Booth Whiteley was born, 16 February 1820, but died 10 July 1822, a few months after his second birthday.  The child was named for Samuel's younger brother.

It may have been about this time, Samuel and Lucy moved to the Northern District of Jackson County, Alabama East of 4th Range, near the Cherokee Indian Reservation.  They settled on some public land and built a log house and improvements.  Also living in E. of 4th Range in same area was George Maynard, Jesse Mainard (Jesse, JR); and Henry Mainard (SP), brothers of Lucy. There was also, a Henry Lawrence, relation unknown. The above 'Maynard' brothers had been in McMinn, Co., Tennessee on 3 June 1820 when they signed a petition concerning Cherokee Land purchase.

After meeting the requirements of land settlement, called "proving up" his land and having at least one successful crops usually taking two to five years, Samuel entered his Claim at the Land Office at Huntsville, Alabama as a floating claim on a preference right by Virtue of an Act of Congress granting preferences rights to actual settlers living on the public lands and passed 29 May, 1830, indicating Samuel had been living on and had improved the land before making his claim. In the book, "OLD LAND RECORDS OF JACKSON CO., ALABAMA" by Cowart, are found these listings:  P.393 in 29 May, 1830:

NW - SE = 40 acres & SW - SE = 40 acres in Section 6, Twp. 4, Range 3 E.
(Samuel sold part of this land in 1831 to Wm. H. Moore on 13 September 1831)
Pg.132 Grant #2464 dated 12 July 1830, under the same Act of Congress:
E half of NE quarter 79.95 ac.  Section 6, Twp. 3, Range 5 E of Huntsville Meridian.

Samuel Whiteley was listed on the 1830 Census of Jackson Co., Alabama, Northern District of Alabama East of 4th Range page 19, line 16:

2 males under 5 (Geo, age 1, Andrew age 3) 2 males 5/10    (James T. age 5            1 female 5/10  (Rachel age 8)                 Jesse M. age 6)           1 female 10/15 (Martha age 12) 1 male 20/30    (? bro of Lucy?)           1 female 30/40 (Lucy, age 30-31) 1 male 30/40    (Samuel age 33)            1 female 60/70 (Lucy's mother?)

The older female may have been Martha (Lawrence) Maynard, Lucy's mother. As Jesse Maynard, Sr. was not listed on the 1830 census.  The before mentioned Maynard men, were on the same 1830 census.  The 60/70 female could not have been Sarah Whiteley, Samuel's mother, as she was on the 1830 census shown as a widow, in Tennessee with daughter, Sally.

On 13 September, 1831, Samuel and Lucy Whiteley sold to William H. Moore for One hundred and fifty dollars part of the above land grant in Jackson Co., Alabama Deed Bk. D, pg. 107 (* copy). WEST half of the SOUTHEAST quarter in Section 6, Twp. 4, Range 3 EAST. The Deed * is signed by Samuel and Lucy Whiteley, making their mark.

Samuel and Lucy, by September 1831, had sold their land and left Alabama, joining Samuel's brothers, Charles and Isaac, in the newly opened Arkansas Territory.  The family had grown and now consisted of seven of the eight children who had been born to them, including the eldest, Martha, 13, and the youngest, Sally Ann, who was born 26 Aug., 1831.  Samuel, with a team of horses, and a few items of the necessary worldly goods and the seven children, all loaded in a covered wagon, set out on a long trip to the beautiful land of the Ozarks in Northwestern Arkansas.

It probably took the family until late spring of 1832 to make the long journey by wagon train from Alabama into Arkansas. After they arrived in the Arkansas territory, Samuel selected a tract of land near the War Eagle Creek and started the improvements so as to file his claim.  The virgin timber furnished the logs for the house and barn and the beautiful wilderness area, provided fresh game and fruit, edible greens and the necessary plants and herbs for Lucy to use with her Indian knowledge for medications. The waters of the War Eagle Creek had a bountiful Supply of fish. The sons, Jesse, about 8 years old, James T, 7 and Andy, 5, all pitched in on the other chores, as there was much work to be done to have the house closed in, wood cut and stacked and the stumps cleared from the field for the next Spring planting, a food supply in the root cellar and wild game in the smokehouse, all ready for their first winter in Arkansas.

According to land records, around 1852, Samuel and Lucy Whiteley had moved into Newton County, Arkansas and located on the Upper Buffalo River.  There he purchased a gristmill that had been built by Abner Casey, Sr.  Samuel became a very respected miller and the gristmill was then, renown as the "Whiteley Mill". Samuel and Lucy raised their younger children and the older boys settled on land nearby.  The Grist Mill, cotton gin and saw mill were run by Samuel and his sons and became a well known meeting place where farmers for many miles around, talked about the crops, exchanged views on the local politics and the women came with their husbands to chat with the other wives, as they waited in line for their grain, to be milled into flour and their corn to be ground into meal.

On December 1, 1851 the fifth Post Office to be established in, Newton County  was named 'WHITELEY' and its first Postmaster was Jesse T. Casey.  The Post office was named in honor of Samuel Whiteley, one of the first settlers in the area.  The location of the Post Office is now known, as "Boxley", named so, after the death of Samuel and the Civil War when a merchant by that name moved into the community.

Lucy (Maynard) Whiteley died of typhoid Fever at their homestead near Boxley in Newton, County, Arkansas on 24 February 1860 at 3 o'clock AM at age 61 years, 4 months and 24 days.  (A.J.Whiteley Bible Record and Newton Co. Mortality Record) She is thought to be buried on the Boxley homestead in the small graveyard near Samuel's home.  Lucy's grandson, James L. Villines stated in 1953 that he had planted two cedar trees to mark the location of the graves.

Samuel Whiteley, a widower, was listed on the 1860 Census, Newton Co., Arkansas. Living with him was his son, Andrew Jackson and 2nd wife, Phoebe J. (Allred) Whiteley and family. Van Buren Twp., p.36, family 233:


       Name          Age    Occupation                      RE Value PP Value     Born

On 18 November 1860, almost 9 months after the death of Lucy, Samuel Whiteley married Louvana Kerby, the widow of Reuben Kerby, who had died in 1859. Rev. Isaac Whiteley, brother of Samuel married Samuel and Louvana, and the marriage is recorded in Newton Co., Arkansas.

Louvana was born about 1819 in Tennessee.  She and Reuben Kerby had at least six children and she brought them into Samuel's household.  She was listed on the 1860 Carroll Co., AR.  Census page 987 family 262 as a widow with children: Andrew Jackson Kerby age 15; S.I., (female) Kerby age 13, Rebecca Kerby 10; I.W. (male) Kerby, 8; John F. Kerby age 5 and James K. P. Kerby age 2.  Louvana and Samuel were living at his homestead near Boxley, where Samuel was killed during the Civil War.

When the Civil War became a reality for the settlers in Arkansas, almost all men except the too young and the too old and disabled joined the Union or the Confederate Army, depending on their individual beliefs.  Some families were split brothers against brothers and neighbor against neighbor.  Samuel was in his 60s by then and was too old to, join the Army.  His sympathies were with the South and he helped in the home defense against the marauding bands that were plaguing the countryside, stealing and taking all they could carry on horseback and burning the rest.

Houses were burned and some of the mothers took their children to the caves in The hills to survive the best they could until the end of the War.  Jayhawkers, Bushwhackers, renegades, deserting soldiers from both sides, became roving bands of robbers and made raids on the horses and cattle for their cause, taking the only meat the women had to feed their children, while the men were away. It was a hard time for the Whiteley family.  Samuel's sons, Jesse Maynard Whiteley, was killed while carrying the Confederate Flag at the Battle at Pea Ridge and son George Washington Whiteley also had died while home on leave.  Samuel's daughter Lucy had died as well as her husband, Isaac N. Murphy, leaving two minor aged daughters.  His daughter, Phoebe, had also lost her husband, Ellsberry Casey, and daughter, Matilda's husband, Robert Lee Villines, had been taken prisoner by the Union Army.  It was a bitter war that left scars on the people as well as on the countryside. (See "BOXLEY MILL SCENE OF 1864 SKIRMISH" From the book, "HISTORY OF NEWTON COUNTY, ARKANSAS" by Walter F. Lackey, pp. 127 through 146 records some of the history of Newton County, Arkansas during the Civil War and about the bushwhackers who had moved into the area and on p. 141 he describes the battle between the Union Forces and the Confederates that took place at the "Whiteley Mill".  It is noted by the date of Major Melton's report that Samuel was still living at his old homestead by the "Whiteley Mill" and may have witnessed or been involved in that battle. Some of the large trees in the area still have tops missing from the heavy cannon fire during the heat of the battle.

Report of Major A. Melton, Second Arkansas Cavalry (Union), in the field,

                                       APRIL 10, 1864

General:

I have the honor to report that on the 5th instant, a scout of this regiment numbering 50 men, under Capt. Orr, Company C, and Lieutenant Bell, Co. I attacked the enemy under Cecil, Cooper, Patton and not unlikely Green, all chiefs of the guerrilla bands, concentrated to the number of 250 men at WHITELEY'S MILL or, the headquarters of Buffalo River.  The enemy (Confederates) had been warned of the approach of Captain Orr, and had formed to receive him. They were partly mounted and partly dismounted. Capt. Orr dashed into their camp and twice broke their line of cavalry.

After a fire of musketry about two hours duration, the ammunition being nearly exhausted, Captn. Orr withdrew.  The loss of John H Murry, dead and Obed W. Patty, missing.  Pvt.  Gustavus Bishop was wounded.  The loss of the enemy had not been ascertained, beyond one wounded.

On the 11 (or 14) of October 1864, Samuel Whiteley died from a gunshot wound in the chest, at his homestead at Whiteley, Arkansas. (Now called "Boxley") Many versions of the circumstance of Samuel Whiteley's death have circulated down through the years.  It is family tradition that about 1857-58, Samuel along with his son, Andrew Jackson Whiteley and other men from Newton, Madison and Carroll counties, joined the rush for gold in California.  Samuel is said to have returned with a sizable amount of gold and as the years passed, the amount of gold and the stories have grown.  It is not known how much gold Samuel brought back with him and if so, if the gold was the cause of his death.

James Larkin Villines, the son of Samuel's daughter, Matilda Catherine, was born in the Boxley area in 1862 and lived there throughout his entire life.  He was about two years of age when his grandfather was killed and had heard his family recall the events.  'Uncle Jimmy' as he was called, told his version to Johnye Harben in 1953 in a personal visit and interview at his home across from the Mill Pond:

"Samuel had left the house that morning to move his buried treasure as he figered he needed a safer place to bury it.  He had walked over the hill yonder, carrying his old long-gun in case he ran into trouble along the way.  He was gone for a few hours and when he was in sight of his house, he saw three horses tied out front. He hid behind a tree, probably thinking whoever they were, would find nothing left to take from his smokehouse or the old Mill, and leave.  He heard them tearing up his house as if looking for something, might have been his gold, and as he was the only one that knew where he had just reburied it, he thought he'd better keep out of sight, but when he saw his wife run from the house, and one of the men followed her and knocked her down, he couldn't stand it no longer and came out from behind the tree and shot the man and he killed another one as he came running from the house.  But the third man shot Samuel before he could again reload his gun, got on his horse and rode off.  By the time his wife could get to Samuel, he died without telling her where he had hid the gold.  Although many have searched for it, the gold has not been found. (by 1953)

Samuel Whiteley had made his Last Will and Testament dated 27 March 1855, before his first wife Lucy had died.  Newton Co. AR, Misc. Bk. 1, Administrator's Bonds-Wills, PP 8 & 9. Copies of all records in files of Editor, made at Jasper, Newton CO., AR 1982, typed as written.

The 1855 seems to have been written over a date of 1866, same as shown on year date when the county clerk, A. C. Phillips signed that he had copied the Testimony at the time the WILL was presented in Court, (Coppy Test.  May 14, 1866), indicating the recorder wrote 1866 in error and corrected it to 1855 as on the original WILL date which Samuel Whiteley was made in 1855, before the death of his first wife, Lucy in 1860, and his sons, Jesse M. and George Washington, both killed in the  Civil War.  His daughters, Lucy and Rachel had died also,   all leaving minor children as heirs.  Also note that Testate, James P. Spring, in the paragraph above, is the same Attorney who made out the Application in Carroll Co., AR. in 1850 for the land warrants for Samuel.  On 5 September, 1866, Andrew Jackson Whiteley, s/o Samuel and one of the Executors of his father's WILL, was living in one of the small log cabins on the homestead when his son, John Nelson was born in 1866.  James T. Whiteley, another son of Samuel, and Executor, was also, living in Newton Co., AR.

"Charles Booth Whiteley was a Baptist minister, man of public spirit. Fair ability as a speaker, with character worthy of his calling. he was active in the support of free schools." (History of Northwest Arkansas).

He was one of the first men to be in the tanning business, known to be very strict. but held in the greatest respect by children, grandchildren, and in-laws. He had a store at one time in Arkansas. He was a free-will Baptist preacher, and never charged for marriages or funerals. He went to Texas in the fall of 1861 or spring of 1862.

Sick Dear Children and grand children:

I write you these lines and it may be the last. I was attacted strangely verry mild slow progress, I went as long as I was able to go, I didnt no what ailed me but knew I was going down. Yesterday was a week ago when I went to start to church I saw I was sinking so fast I thought I would get wayed. I had lost 20 lbs. I come home that evening and tuck my bed suffering a greatdeal of pain and sick stomach; wayed again yesterday morning lost 18 lbs in 7 days. I called in the best physician I could get, said from exposure and hardship, my liver was diseased, he gave me 4 doses of medicine after that two heavy doses of calomel, my stomache full of medison but no action. Lost hopes of Medical aid but thank God Jesus was with me all the time. I have heaven in my view and glory in my soul. I talked to your mother, your brothers, and sisters and groops and swarming friends. I told them I dident dread to die. I would drother die than live. I had a family forming in heaven. I wanted to be with your sister Betty, Thomas, and Henderson, and my blessed Jesus. That it was necessary that I should die, if I was not sown in dishoner I could not be raised in Glory., if I was not sown in weakness I could not be raised in power. If I was not sown a natural boddy I could not be raised a Spiritual boddy. My soul is happy. Glory Glory Glory. Yesterday morning surrounded with children. old friends, and acquaintances, medison begin to act hope of life sprang up, simtoms is all good I am not suffering now. If I live I will write soon. If I die meet me in that bright world of glory. Though I feel like now I will be up in a few days.

I ain't satisfied without saying a word or two to you about my worldly matters. My worldly I had all wound up, owed narry dollar, willed everything to your Mother during her life time, then to be equally divided amoung my heirs, but was greatly troubled about your good old Mother. Indeed a good wife. She has been a good religious, kind and tender Mother had always set good examples before them. Now to be left a lonely widow it was almost more than nature could bare, but after consulting the mind of my blessed Jesus. Saturday evening my wish known I requested Neal and Sarah to rent out their land, come and live in your mother's house, have as much of my land as he could tend the management of, everything rent out the ballance of my land and turn over the income to your Mother. I was going to leave your Mother pleanty to buy everything she wants to eat or wear, this seems to be satisfactory. I hope this will meet your intire approbation, if so write in haste, I don't want them to labor under imbarrassment having fears that you would not be satisfied. I have all confidence that they will treat your Mother well. For your satisfaction I will give you a remark that your brother Jim made when I mentioned this request. Jim's cheeks britened over with gladness, his expression was manly and noble, said Sarah is a good woman and if she had picked the world over she couldent to got a better man than Neal. I mention this because Neal is a stranger to you all. I leave room for a note in the morning.

                                      Tuesday morning the 20.                                       Simptoms all good for recovery.

                                      C. B. Whiteley  Farewell

The first sermon C. B. Whiteley preached was from Ephesians 5:14 "Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. "
