1. JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN)1 was born in England, and died in Virginia.

Notes for JAMES BOATWRIGHT (ALLEN):

In an undated letter from Martha E.J. Boatright Hamor Chitty to her sister, Rietta Jehoshebeath Boatright Johnson, Martha discusses the family history as she knows it. These ladies were granddaughters of the James Boatwright of Cumberland County, Virginia, who was married to Elizabeth Kidd, and who, upon her death, married her sister Mary Kidd. Martha's father was Chesley Hood Boatright, the youngest child of James.

My grandmother, Verna Boatright Milstead, received a copy of this letter from Ruth Boatright Parker of Hobbs, New Mexico, a great great granddaughter of Chesley Hood Boatright. Mrs. Parker obtained a typed copy of the letter from Opal Johnson Cook, of Little Rock, Arkansas. Mrs. Cook had copied it from the original letter which belonged to an Aunt in Missouri. The location of the original is unknown to me as this is written in 1998.

In the letter to her sister, Martha states:

"Well, now for all that I can tell you about where our Boatwright ancestors came from; three brothers, Daniel, Jesse, and James Allen (English) stood buckled in armor to guard the life of King George of England, always standing in the king's court. They heard much of the new world, as this Western continent was then called. There was no freedom for men whose services the king required. They could not marry nor own property. They were slaves to the king for as long as they lived. The 3 brothers skipped their bondage and came to America. They took up the trade of boat building and took the name Boatwright. James and Jesse married. Daniel did not. The brothers fought for American liberty in the Revolution from King George. Two of our father's brothers were soldiers in 1812 to 1815.

James was our great grandfather (English). Our grandfather was named James. His first wife, Elizabeth Kidd, his second wife Mary Kidd. Our grandmother--[letter is torn here]. They lived in Virginia. After our grandfather died, his sons scattered into different states. They are scattered, I suppose, in every state; never were much to huddle together. I don't know where the three brothers landed on the American shore, nor the exact date.

They were here in time to do their part in freeing Young America from the British rule, but they took the name Boatwright in the new country to protect themselves from the King's officers that were in power before the revolution that freed Americans from a tyrant across the sea. I have always been proud of their love of freedom and their determination to succeed, even to leaving their old English name and taking a purely American name & chose to labor with free people rather than stand as a slave in the King's palace. Yes, children, I am proud of the blood. I don't know of any record except what Father kept of his own family. I know two of his brothers fought the British and Indians 100 years ago. I don't have an idea of who has a record, other than you. I hope you will write soon to your

Sister,

Martha E.J. Chitty"

 

Information supporting this version of our line of the Boat(w)right family was also found in Goodspeed's "History of Northwest Arkansas", which was published in 1889. This information is quoted in the "notes" section on the family page of Chesley Hood Boatwright, the youngest son of James Boatwright (born abt. 1745) of Cumberland County, Virginia.

As this is written, 1998, we know nothing of the family of the Jesse Boatwright (Allen) mentioned by Martha Boatwright Chitty. According to her, the third brother, Daniel, never married and nor had any children. The genealogy of James' son, also named James, is a part of this family history and is relatively complete. We do not know at this time if the second James was an only child, though this is unlikely in an era of large families.

The story of the name change from Allen to Boatwright was passed down in several branches of the family. Another version of the story indicates that the three brothers were named James, Jesse, and John.

There is one Jesse Boatwright included in this genealogy who lived in Cumberland County in the late 1700's and early 1800's about whom we know very little. His will, from which virtually all of the information concerning this Jesse is derived, is dated in 1821, which would exclude him from being one of the three original brothers unless he was well over 100 years of age. We know his wife was named Judith, we have a list of all of his children living at the time his will was written, and we know from marriage records that one his sons, Langhorne, married a cousin, Sally Boatwright, in Cumberland County in 1785. We know little else about this Jesse but speculate that he is some relation to James, the progenitor of our line of the family, because of the geographic proximity between the two and the similarities of the names of the children of both. The best guess, and it is a guess only, is that Jesse and James are probably brothers.

There are references that have been found to several Boatwrights of whom we either have little or no knowledge, or are not able to positively identify, who lived during this time period in the same area of Virginia. Different documents, land records, etc., mention a John Baughtwright in 1704 in New Kent County, a Thomas Bootwright in 1735-1736 in Powhatan County, and a Thomas Boatwright again in 1751 in the same area.

The U.S. Census of 1782-85 gives a William, Jesse, and James Boatwright as living in Cumberland County. We know who Jesse and James are, but are uncertain as to the parentage and other relationships of William.

The same census indicates that a Benjamine, Daniel, James, and John Boatwright lived in Hanover County. These men are believed to be the sons of Thomas Boatwright, born 1715, and no relation to our line.

Daniel and Micajah Boatwright enlisted as soldiers in the Revolutionary War and John Boatwright, who died in Prince Edward County in 1832, enlisted from Cumberland County under Captain Brad Haskins in the winter of 1780-81.

A number of Boat(w)right family researchers have speculated that the above mentioned Thomas Boatwright is the father of our James and/or the Daniel Boatwright who married Jane Martin about 1757-1758. I do not agree with this speculation for the following reasons:

1. The above quoted letter makes it clear that the father of our James was also named James.

2. It was the custom of the times to name at least one male child after the grandfather, father, and/or uncles. None of either James' or Daniel's children or grandchildren is named Thomas. Furthermore, none of the family records such as those mentioned above or any of the existing Bible records mentions a Thomas Boatwright. Also, many of Thomas' descendants in the Carolinas and Georgia are named Thomas, but no other Thomas Boatwrights are found in the Cumberland County area of Virginia.

3. Thomas apparently moved from Virginia to the Carolinas between 1751-1755. James, born about 1745, would have been much to young to leave by himself, but we have no information which indicates our James ever lived anywhere but Virginia.

Therefore, I do not believe Thomas Boatwright is directly related to our line of the family.

Cumberland County records contain the will of Daniel Boatwright, born about 1739, probated March 26, 1798, in which he mentions his wife Jane, sons John, James, and Valentine, and daughters Jane Smith, Elizabeth Martin, Esther Martin, Nancy Miller, Rhoda, and Lockey. I have a copy of this will in my possession.

We are not sure of Daniel's exact relationship to James Boatwright, the progenitor of our line of the family. He could not be James' son Daniel as that Daniel was born in 1777 and would have been only twenty-one in 1798 when the Daniel in question died. Hardly enough time to have sired nine children.

Based upon the time frame and residence in Cumberland County, we must assume that Daniel is the son of either Jesse or James, two of the original brothers who came from England. If one accepts the alternate version of the Allen story, then he could be the son of John. He may also be the brother of our James, but as with Jesse, there is no hard evidence of that available to us at this time.

3. JAMES2 BOATWRIGHT (JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN))7,8,9,10 was born Abt. 1745 in Virginia, and died 1815 in Cumberland County, Virginia.

Notes for JAMES BOATWRIGHT:

The names , birth dates, and death dates of James Boatwright, his wives, children, and their children, are drawn from a variety of sources, the most reliable of which are bible entries. Elizabeth Blackburn Boatwright, the wife of James' oldest son Benoni, called Benjamine, recorded births, deaths, and marriages, including those of some of the family slaves, in her Bible. The entries are somewhat haphazard and are not complete for each family line, but it must be assumed that what is written is correct, particularly since much of the material is corroborated by other sources.

My copy of the entries in Elizabeth's Bible was sent to me by Dennis Guy Boatright of Texas. He had received a copy of the pertinent pages of Elizabeth's Bible from Denny Boatright of Missouri. The actual bible was last known to be in the possession of Mrs. Joe Adams, a grand daughter of William Letcher Todd and Eliza Ann Boatwright Todd.

Chesley Hood Boatwright, the youngest son of James, had a bible, last believed to be in the possession of Clara Boatright Laningham of Arkansas, in which were found two neatly folded sheets of paper containing a list of all of the children of James Boatwright and their birth dates. I received a Xerox copy of this list from my grandmother, Verna Boatright Milstead, and from Dennis Guy Boatright. At the bottom of the list is written, "The above register was drawn from his Father's family bible by his youngest son February 5th, 1843." It is signed "C. H. Bootright."

I have chosen to accept the dates and the spellings of names as shown in these bible entries as correct. Where there is any discrepancy or disagreement, the alternative opinion will be mentioned and clearly labeled as to source.

It should be noted, however, that the spelling of the surname itself is a cause of confusion. In most sources, one finds that the name as used by the early members of the family is spelled Boatwright. Generally, although not in all cases, the "w" was dropped in later generations. However, in the following will of James, written in 1814, the name is spelled "Boatright" throughout. The reason could be that the will was written by an attorney for James and, as seems to be the custom of the times, he spelled the name the way he saw fit. Nonetheless, in a handwritten list of siblings and their birth dates compiled by James' youngest son, Chesley Hood, Chesley spells the name "Bootright". In Elizabeth Blackburn's Bible, the name is spelled both "Boatwright" and "Boatright." To make the matter even more uncertain, she spells the surname of her husband Benjamine, James' oldest son, without the "w" as she does James'. She also spells her married name without the "w" in the Bible, but on her tombstone the "w" is included.

Inconsistency abounds in the spelling of the Boat(w)right name, particularly in this line of the family. It seems best not to become too concerned over the spelling of the surname, realizing that our earlier ancestors seemed to have spelled it as the mood struck them on any given day.

 

WILL OF JAMES BOATWRIGHT OF CUMBERLAND COUNTY, VA.

The following will of James Boatwright can be found in the Cumberland County, Virginia, Circuit Court records, Will Book 5, Page 86:

"In the name of God amen, knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die, I James Boatright of Cumberland County and State of Virginia, being in my right mind and of disposing memory, do make this my last will and testament.

3rdly. I give to my son Chestly Boatright my tract of land on which I live, of one hundred and nineteen acres be the same, as also my still and still vessels provisor that the said Chestly Boatright lets my daughter Drucilla Boatright remain in the mansion house on said plantation with him after my death and boarding free until she marrys, to him and his heirs forever.

4thly. I give to each of my children as they may need that have not received heretofore one bed and furniture.

5thly. I give to my son Drury Boatright ten dollars in addition to what I have deeded him proviso that he obligates himself to give free liberty or use of the spring called Drummons.

the named James Boatright in the presence

James (His Mark) Boatright"

 

 

NOTE:

It is apparent from the signature at the end of this will that James, for all his land and property holdings, was unable to read and write. As he obviously did not write this will himself, it would account for the misspellings, particularly of family members. The names of his children Chesley and Drucillah, are spelled incorrectly throughout this document. The accurate and correct spelling of these names is well documented in letters, bible records, etc., some of which are written by the same family members whose names are misspelled in the will.

Nonetheless, I have reproduced the will from a microfilm copy of the original, handwritten document, complete with misspellings and grammatical errors, as accurately as I am able for the sake of maintaining the integrity of the will as originally written.

 

It is interesting to note that the "Daniel's Iland" willed to his son Leonard can be found on a current (1998) map of Cumberland County and is now known as "Boatwright's Island".

Generation No. 3

4. JOHN JOSEPH3 BOATWRIGHT (DANIEL2, JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN))30 was born 1764 in Amherst County, Virginia, and died Aft. 1833 in Kentucky. He married FRANCES ELIZABETH TINSLEY November 24, 1785 in Powhatan County, Virginia31, daughter of WYATT TINSLEY and ELIZABETH HARRISON. She was born Abt. 1767 in Virginia.

Notes for JOHN JOSEPH BOATWRIGHT:

John Boatwright is believed to be the same as the individual who applied for a Revolutionary War pension on April 15, 1833.

This is reported in Virgil D. White's "General Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Files", Vol. 1.

"Virginia Militia in the Revolutionary War", Part II, page 56 reports the following:

"Boatwright, John--Prince Edward, Aug. 22, 1832. Born in Amherst, 1764. Enlisted in the winter of 1780-81under Capt. Brad Haskins, of Cumberland, and served three months, in Col. Posey's regiment, of Gen. Muhlenberg's command. In next tour was under colonels Dolman and Parker, marching to Suffolk and Portsmouth, in which vicinity he was in several skirmishes, and then sent to Gen. Gregory's station, returning after a few days to Gen. Muhlenberg near Suffolk. Discharged after three months at Chuckatuck Mills. Also in 1781, served two months under Capt. William Meredith, of Gen. Steubin's command, campaigning in and about Chesterfield County."

Ricker's notes from "The Boat(w)right Family of Southeastern Virginia" states that, "four of his sons, described as 'tall, rawboned men, from 6'2" to 6'4" in stocking feet,' also enlisted in the Continental Army. Three were killed by Indians who were with the British in a battle at Craney's Island at the mouth of the Roanoke River in Virginia."

It is presumed that Ricker is talking about the War of 1812 as John's sons would have been too young to have fought in the Revolutionary War.

She was born July 01, 1779 in Cumberland County, Virginia44, and died September 11, 1862 in Garrard County, Kentucky.

Notes for BENONI (BENJAMINE) BOATWRIGHT:

He is generally known as "Benjamin"; however, in his youngest brother's list of the children of James Boatwright, his name is shown as "Benoni-called Benjamin." Some documents spell his name as Benjamine.

The name is biblical, from Genesis 35:18: "As she breathed her last-for she was dying-she named her son Ben-Oni, but his father named him Benjamin."

Norman Hurd Ricker indicates that records reflect Benjamin served as a Private in Captain Hudson M. Wingfield's Infantry Company of the 4th Virginia Regiment from 03/16/1814-04/11/1814 at Norfolk, Virginia. He also served as a Private in Captain Jesse Woodson's Company of the 1st Regiment at Holly Springs from 10/01/1814-to 11/04/1814 as a substitute for Richard Boatright. He further served in Captain John Pollock's Light Infantry Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Regiment of the Virginia Militia from 12/28/1814-02/21/1815 as a substitute for Shadh Alvis, Sr.

This appraisement of the personal estate of Benjamin Boatwright deceased was presented in Court and was by the Court ordered to be recorded.

 

Wm S. Dance, C.

--------------------------

 

Without prior approval of the Court, Elizabeth moved the family and Estate Property of Benjamin to Kentucky; leaving her Uncle William Blackburn responsible under bond to the Court for administration of the Estate, and without the ability to perform. William Blackburn took legal action to protect his bond.

 

To the Honorable Judge of the Garrard (County KY) Circuit Court in Chancery sitting, the orator, William Blackburn, complaining, showeth unto your honor that Benjamin Boatright, late of Powhatan County Virginia, departed this life intestate on the day of June, 1816 in said County of Powhatan, and on the 17th day of July 1816, Elizabeth Boatright, his widow, who is made defendant hereto, qualified as his Administratrix in the County Court of said County and then and there entered into an Administration Bond with George Mosely and your orator, as her securities in the penalty of 5,000 dollars a copy of which bond for greater certainty is here exhibited marked Exhibit A. The personal estate constituting appoints and then have aforesaid addition was appraised to 2,674.60 dollars as will appear by reference to a certified copy of said appraisement here exhibited and marked B. Decedent at his death left the following children, the following heirs to wit: Martha, James, William, Eliza, Allen, RhodeAnne, Lucy, and Benjamin Boatright. The last five of whom are infants. About three years ago, said Administrator, with the said children, who are also made defendants, removed to Garrard County, in Kentucky, without having returned any Inventory of said estate, or have made any settlement thereof with the County Court of Powhatan, that he knows of, and bringing with her all or most of the said estate, or its proceeds, she made no allotment for distribution of said estate among said children, but is managing and disposing of the same, as if it were her own.

 

Your orator is apprehensive that said estate may be wasted or illegally and improvidently managed to his eventual injury as security as aforesaid. By removal to Kentucky said Elizabeth has become unexcessible by the County Court of Powhatan. In this predicament your orator does not only endanger of ultimate liability and loss as security but is removeless except in your Court of Chancery.

 

In tender consideration whereof and as he is remidiless at law, he prays interposition of your Honor he prays that defendant may be compelled to answer this bill. He prays that you will restrain by interposition from sellers or otherwise, putting out of her hands said property or any part thereof until this bill be heard and disposed of, he prays that on the final hearing your Honor will make said injunction perpetual or take said estate out of the possession of said Administrator unless you will indemnify your orator aforesaid any liability as security as aforesaid, that you will compel said heirs to make distribution among them-selves of the said estate liable to such distribution or waive any claim hereafter on your orator as security as aforesaid. And that you will grant such other and faithful relief as may be just and proper.

 

William Blackburn

G. Robertson, as Council

 

 

Notes for ELIZABETH BLACKBURN:

According to Denny Boatright, the original Boatwright Homestead was purchased by Benjamin Daniel Boatwright, the youngest son of Benjamine (Benoni) and Elizabeth Blackburn Boatwright, on August 31, 1835. His mother, Elizabeth, lived in the house until she died in 1862. The property consisted of 175.4 acres and the log house and the sale is recorded in Madison County Deed Book W, page 100.

On June 30, 1852, the Homestead and property was deeded to Alexander A. Boatwright, another son, by the other children and heirs. Alexander was a widower at that time and lived with his mother, Elizabeth, and his daughter, Eliza Ann. Alexander was an ordained Baptist minister. The property and homestead were deeded to his daughter, who had married William Letcher Todd, upon Alexander's death in 1885.

After the death of Eliza in 1920, Madison County Deed Book 95, pages 327-329, indicate that the homestead was deeded to one of her sons, Thomas A. Todd. Todd and his family made the property their home until 1928 and also acquired an additional, adjoining 79.66 acre farm known as the "Miracle Place".

In 1928 the farm was sold to Thomas Todd's brother, George Boatwright Todd, as recorded in Madison County Deed Book 106, page 598. Todd apparently lived there until 1950 when the land was sold to Harold E. Richardson for $28,000. George as the last of the Boatwrights or their descendants to own the property.

On December 2, 1973, Richardson sold the farm to J.W. Ramsey for $102,000. During Ramsey's ownership, the old homestead went to ruin and the solid walnut logs were sold off. The only thing remaining is the main rock chimney.

12. WILLIAM3 BOATWRIGHT (JAMES2, JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN)) was born May 29, 1784 in Cumberland County, Virginia52, and died August 08, 1875 in Madison County, Arkansas53. He married (1) JAMIMA BOWEN July 22, 1808 in Grainger County, Tennessee54. She died 1820. He married (2) NANCY MORGAN April 29, 1821 in Grainger County, Tennessee. She was born February 15, 1804 in Tennessee, and died in Madison County, Arkansas.

Notes for WILLIAM BOATWRIGHT:

Various dates of birth have been found for William. We use the date shown, May 29, 1784, as this is the date found in his father's bible, as recorded by his youngest brother, Chesley Hood Boatright. A xerox copy of this recording is in my possession.

The 1850 Madison County, Arkansas, census, from which the list of William's children by his second wife is taken, indicates that he was 63 years of age in 1850. This would make his birth year 1787 rather than 1784, but we regard his father's bible records as more accurate than the census.

It should also be noted that the 1850 census records his second wife's age as 41 in 1850. We show a date of birth for this wife, Nancy Morgan, as February 15, 1804, which would make her about 46 years of age when the census was taken rather than 41 as shown in the census records.

Unfortunately, the source for Nancy's date of birth was lost before it was recorded with these records, so we cannot positively verify her actual date of birth.

The 1850 census also records the fact that Elizabeth Waits, age 6; John Waits, age 4; and John Wells, age 19, were all living in William's household in 1850.

Notes for LEONARD BOATWRIGHT:

Gerald Martin Boatwright reports that the 1830 Cumberland County, Virginia, Census indicates Leonard had 1 son under age 5 and three between the ages of 10 and 14.

He also states that the 1840 Census of Cumberland County shows 1 son between 10-14 years of age and 1 between 20-29 years old.

Finally, the 1850 Census indicates only 1 child at home, a daughter, Mary, born 1826-27.

It is unclear why Mary didn't show up in the earlier census records.

Unless otherwise noted, sources for information concerning the descendants of Chesley Hood Boatright are Verna Boatright Milstead, Dennis Guy Boatright, Ruth Boatright Parker, Kristin Vaughn, Norman Ricker, Betty Busbee, and David Michael Boatright.

The following paragraph concerning Chesley Hood is taken from the "History of Northwest Arkansas", the chapter on Madison county, Page 1102. It is an excerpt of a biography which discusses Charles S. Keeney, his wife Mary Elizabeth Boatright, and Charles' family.

"The mother was a daughter of the Rev. Chesley Boatright, a minister of the Missionary Baptist Church. The Boatright [p.1102] family of America belonged to the King's body guard, and escaping settled in America prior to the Revolution, in which they took an active part. A number of the family also did honorable service in the War of 1812. The Rev. Chesley Boatright was a native of Virginia, and came to Madison County as a missionary of the Baptist Church when the country was but sparsely settled. He established the first Baptist Church in Northwest Arkansas, and was one of the best known men in the Cherokee Nation."

Chesley Hood Boatright was ordained a Baptist minister in 1833 at the Hebron Church, Knox County, Tennessee.

15. POWHATAN VALENTINE4 BOATWRIGHT (JOHN JOSEPH3, DANIEL2, JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN))70,71 was born July 13, 1790 in Amherst County, Virginia, and died December 21, 1880 in Union Parish, Louisiana. He married (1) LUCY UTELY72 December 23, 1815 in Jessamine County, Kentucky72, daughter of WILLIAM UTLEY and MARY RAGLAND. She was born Abt. 1799, and died Aft. 1823. He married (2) NANCY ELEANOR BURKE72 July 24, 1826 in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana. She was born Abt. 1792 in South Carolina, and died Abt. 1870 in Union Parish, Louisiana.

Notes for POWHATAN VALENTINE BOATWRIGHT:

There is some uncertainty as to whether Powhatan was the son of John James and Elizabeth Boatwright, but both William E. Boatright and Norman Hurd Ricker support the fact that he was.

He enlisted in Captain Parke Bailey's company of the Virginia Militia on 02/28/1814 in Cumberland County. He transferred to Captain John Cole's company on 03/25/1814 and was discharged on 06/29/1814. He applied for and received a Pension on October 3, 1873.

He was also commissioned a 1st Lt. in the 7th Regiment, Arkansas Militia on September 21, 1824.

In 1836 he owned 500 acres of land in Union Parish, Louisiana, near the Arkansas line. Records indicate that he was an elected Police Juryman (County Commissioner) in 1841 and was one of the men selected to pick a church site for the Zion Hill Baptist Church in 1845. In 1860 his real estate property was assessed at $2,700 and his personal property at $790.

He is buried at the Boatright Cemetery 9 miles north of Farmerville, Louisiana.

More About POWHATAN VALENTINE BOATWRIGHT:

Fact 1: Unless otherwise noted, most of the information concerning the descendants of Powhatan was received from Tim Hudson.

Notes for LUCY UTELY:

Lucy was one of twelve children. Her mother was already deceased at the time of her father's death and an older brother was named guardian of the younger children. Lucy spent some time in Amelia County, Virginia, before going to Jessamine County, Kentucky, to live with an older brother and his family. It was in Jessamine county where she married Powhatan.

It was only two months later, February 5, 1816, that she placed an ad in the Kentucky Gazette as "Lucy Botewright, late Lucy Utley of Virginia," regarding her "runaway husband, Powhattan Botewright."

They were obviously reunited as three children were born to Powhatan and Lucy between 1818 and 1823. It is believed, but not proven, that Lucy died as a result of giving birth to their third child in 1823.

He married JUDITH SUBLETT December 08, 1817 in Powhatan County, Virginia76. She was born Abt. 178377, and died June 01, 188178.

Notes for LITTLEBERRY BOATWRIGHT:

List of children of Littleberry and Judith, as well as Judith's date of birth, contain a number of uncertainties.

Norman Hurd Ricker lists all of the children and their date of births except for John. Information concerning John comes from Roberta Blomberg. None of the information concerning these children has been verified anywhere else and may not be completely accurate.

For example, Ricker shows William as being born about 1834. He also indicates that Judith was born about 1783. If both of these dates are correct, Judith would have been over fifty when William was born. While not impossible, it would have been unusual, particularly in those times.

WILLIAM VON BOATRIGHT - 1803-1867

Extract, Pg 801, W.E. Boatwright Manuscript

The Boatwright And Allied Families

 

His home in Gentry County, Missouri was used by the Primitive Baptist Congregation for a meeting house, and was the first meeting house in Gentry County west of the Grand River.

 

There was a large one room log cabin in the yard of the farm a short distance from the main building. This cabin was occupied by the family's colored woman, whom they called "Aunt Riar," her name was Mariah. Aunt Riar had been a slave of the family in Kentucky, and when asked if she would like to go to Missouri with William, is supposed to have answered, "of course, I want to come with them, Marse William is my boy for I raised him." Aunt Riar went with William and his family to Missouri, leaving her children and friends in Kentucky, not as a slave, but as a trusted member of the household. During the Civil War, she is supposed to have kept William's money in a secret hiding place for him, and he had to ask her for it whenever he needed some money. The purpose of this was to enable William to say that he did not have any money whenever marauders came. Aunt Riar died in her cabin, the date is not known, and is buried in the Old Boatright Cemetery about two miles from Darlington, Gentry County, Missouri.

Notes for BENJAMINE DANIEL BOATWRIGHT:

Most of the information concerning Benjamine Daniel Boatwright and his direct descendants is taken from "The Family and Ancestors of Robert Guy Boatright" by Robert Guy Boatright. The manuscript was edited and updated by Dennis Guy Boatright.

Benjamine Daniel was a farmer and owned several slaves. He was a Master Mason and secretary of Masonic Lodge# 183, Kirksville, Madison County, Kentucky, from 1849 to 1878. He lived and worked on his farm.

He married a second time to a spinster, Eliza Johnson. They had no children and are believed to have moved late in life to Danville, Kentucky. No information is currently available as to the date of marriage or if the marriage was the result of the death of his first wife, Jalia, or a divorce.

The Boatwright homestead is located in Madison County, Kentucky, about 2-3 miles northeast of Paint Lick on the Paint Lick-Berea highway. It is not known for sure when or where he died, but Ricker, in his notes on the Boat(w)right Family of the Southeastern United States gives the date of death as 1889 in Paint Lick, Kentucky.

 

Notes for JALIA ANN PATTERSON:

Jalia's mother was Rhoda Ann Blackburn Patterson, the sister of Benjamine Daniel's mother, Elizabeth Blackburn.

There has been some dispute among researchers over the spelling of Jalia's first name with many assuming that her name should have been "Julia", but Dennis Guy Boatright is in possession of a photograph of her tombstone and the name is clearly spelled "Jalia".

(Goodspeed-1889)

Charles S. Keeney was born in Osage County, Mo., in 1852, and is a son of Calvin L. and Mary E. (Boatright) Keeney. The father was born in Anderson County, Tenn., and was a son of Michael Keeney, one of the leading pioneer settlers of East Tennessee. Calvin was an educated man taught school some time, and was married about 1842, immediately settling upon a farm in Tennessee. In 1850 he moved to Osage County, Mo., and until 1855 taught school and farmed. He then followed the same occupations in Madison County, Ark., until the war, when he went north and enlisted in the Union cause. He served until 1864. and died at Fayetteville, Ark. The mother was a daughter of the Rev. Chesley Boatright, a minister of the Missionary Baptist Church. The Boatright [p.1102] family of America belonged to the King's body guard, and escaping settled in America prior to the Revolution, in which they took an active part. A number of the family also did honorable service in the War of 1812. The Rev. Chesley Boatright was a native of Virginia, and came to Madison County as a missionary of the Baptist Church when the country was but sparsely settled. He established the first Baptist Church in Northwest Arkansas, and was one of the best known men in the Cherokee Nation. Mrs. Keeney has borne the following children: Mary L., James M. (killed during the war), John C., Chesley S., Minerva B.(wife of R. M. Dutton), one daughter (the wife of Rev. E. A. Barry) and Susan D. (wife of Dr. W. A. Harris). Mrs. Keeney is an active member of the church. Our subject received his education at the common schools.

He married LAVINA KEENEY March 22, 1845 in Campbell County, Tennessee198. She was born Abt. 1825 in Tennessee199.

Notes for HARVEY WOODSON BOATRIGHT:

The following was received from Deborah Yvonne Wilson Fehr, who credits

much of the research to her cousin, Tammy Fraley.

Harvey was born in Anderson County, TN. Harvey Woodson was married in Campbell County Tennessee March 22, 1845, to Lavinna Keeney she was born about 1825 in Tennessee. This is

documented in the Marriage records at the Campbell County records at

Jacksboro, TN. Most of what I have came from Tammy Fraley a descendant of

Mary Leah Louisa (Lear) Boatright, daughter of Harvey. Tammy is her great

granddaughter. A lot of the information that she has came from family and

from the book History of Longfield Baptist Church, A Promise of Good Things

to Come. by Edith Wilson Hutton. If you have not seen this book, it is great

and full of family information. I obtained it for a brief time through the

interlibrary loan program.

About 1835 the family of Chesley Hood Boatright came to the Coal Creek area

(now called Lake City). Harvey joined the Mt. Pleasant (Indian Creek) Church

in Campbell County by letter at that time. In 1840 James, Mary Elizabeth,

Martha E. J. and Rietta joined the Longfield Baptist Church (first called the

Clear Branch Church).Chesley Hood and his wife were also there at that time.

In 1841 Chesley Hood was pastoring both Churches. In 1849 Harvey and Lavinna

were received by recantation to Indian Creek Church. Between October 1849 and

Early 1850, Harvey and family joined his father and family in Madison County,

Arkansas. By 1852 He was back in Campbell County, TN. They were received by

letter back into the Indian Creek Church in February of 1852.

Harvey died 11-1-1853 in Campbell County. Lavinna married Samuel Wilson Thomas on July 2,

1855, in Campbell County. Mary Leah Louisa went by the

name of Lear. She was born about 1847 and died 11-21-1893. She is buried in

an unmarked grave across from the Alexander Place in the Fletcher Brown

Hollow of Pinecrest Community, Jacksboro, Campbell, County, TN. John Thomas

(called Thomas) was married to Louisa Dabney in 1867 in Anderson County, TN.

Children of that marriage as listed in the 1880 Campbell County, Census, are

Rutha age 12, Laney age 9, Texas age 5. Rutha married ?? Ford and had a

daughter Beulah. John Thomas was said to have served in the Union Army in the

Civil War. He lived in a Home for Veterans and it is not know when or where

he died or is buried. Louisa is buried in the Dug Town Cemetery LaFollette,

Campbell County, TN. The headstone says Luiza Dabney wife of J. T. Boatright

b. 1848-d. 1901. I have no further information on this family.

Lavinna and Samuel Wilson Thomas had two children. Half brothers to Lear and

John Thomas were Squire Thomas born about 1857 and Wilson Thomas born about

1859. This is from the 1860 Campbell County census.

Jacob Q. Johnson, one of the wealthy and successful citizens of Washington County, Ark., and the son of James and Mary (Queener) Johnson, was born in East Tennessee in 1828. The father was a native of North Carolina, and was of Dutch descent. He took an active part in the BlackHawk War, and served with great credit to his country. He was a farmer and miller by occupation, and moved from Tennessee to Arkansas in 1851. where he followed farming for some time. He located nine miles south of Fayetteville, and here he died in 1883, from injuries received from falling down stairs. His son, Jacob Q., was educated in his native State, and remained with his father until the war broke out, but previous to to this, in 1852, he married Miss R. J., daughter of C. H. Boatright, of Madison County, and to them were born thirteen children, nine now living: Mary Jane, Tennessee, J. Q., Harriet Eliza, Edna K., Catherine, Susan J., Benjamin F. and Dora H. In 1862 Mr. Johnson enlisted in the Federal army, Company B. First Regiment Arkansas Cavalry, commanded by Col. Harrison, and served three years, three months, and seven days. He was in the battle of Prairie Grove, was also in several skirmishes, but was never wounded or taken prisoner. After the war Mr. Johnson purchased his present home, which is one of the finest in the Northwest, and upon this farm he has erected a fine two-story brick residence, valued at $4,000, also a large sawmill, with grist mill and flouring-mill attached, which is run by a thirty-six foot water-wheel. The water is brought a distance of 500 yards to run the wheel. Mr. Johnson has also steam power attached to run the mill when the water is low or the mill is frozen up. This mill is valued at $20,000. Besides this Mr. Johnson is the owner of 800 acres of valuable land, and has over 200 acres under the plow. He is a member of the G. A.

In and around Huntsville, in Madison County Arkansas in late 1862 and 1863, a more than usual number of Confederate guerilla bands were camping and hiding.

Guerilla warfare is ordinarily carried on by the defenders in enemy territory. Since much of the northern part of the south was occupied by Federals during the Civil War, many southern sympathizers practiced guerilla tactics against the invaders. In this same section (northern part of the South) lived many people of Union sympathies, and they practiced guerilla tactics against the Confederacy until the Union armies arrived.

Neither of the two opposing governments fully approved of guerilla warfare, preferring instead that these partisans enroll in the regular armies whenever they could. Thus, when a strong government was established by either side, guerilla warfare died down. Some guerillas were neither Confederate nor Union, but shifted their supposed allegiance as necessity demanded. In short, they were criminals.

Madison County was ideally suited for the hiding grounds of guerillas forces. It had the clear spring creeks for campsites and ample farm products - grain, forage, hogs, and cattle for food for the men and to feed their horses.

Then, too, the main line of Federal invasion of western Arkansas was from the Springfield, Missouri through Benton, Washington, and Crawford Counties to Fort Smith. Thus, the opposing guerillas could camp in Madison County to the east of this line and strike the Federals and retreat back to their encampments.

The first conflicts of the war on the western frontier in 1861 occurred in Missouri with a major battle September 10, 1861, at Wilson's Creek, ten miles south of Springfield. While this fight, partially due to the loss of Federal General Nathaniel Lyon, has been considered a Southern victory, it was followed soon by the withdrawal of Southern troops to points south of the Missouri line.

On March 6, 1862, the Confederates were defeated at Pea Ridge or Elkhorn Tavern in the northeastern part of Benton County, and the Confederates under General Van Corn were sent east of the Mississippi River. As these retreats occurred, some confederate troops, not wanting to leave their families and their homelands entirely unprotected, broke away from the main army, or were cut off from it, and they carried on guerilla tactics against the Federals in Northwestern Arkansas.

During the summer and late fall of 1862, Isaac Murphy of Huntsville was a refugee in the Federal quarters at Elkhorn Tavern, having fled to the Union Army after the Battle of Pea Ridge. His daughters remained in Huntsville and were brave enough to visit him at Elkhorn Tavern in the fall.

(It might be mentioned here that Isaac Murphy was an early citizen of Washington County, our first county treasurer after statehood, twice our representative in the General

Assembly, and a noted educator along with Macklin, Leverett, and others, before moving to Huntsville. He was also the only Unionist who voted against secession and the first post war governor of Arkansas.)

Because of increasing guerilla tactics, Colonel A.W. Bishop, one of the Federal commanders at Elkhorn, on November 16, furnished an escort of 25 Federal troops to accompany the Murphy daughters back to their home in the east part of Huntsville. When about one mile from their destination, the escort, not realizing the strength of the Confederate guerillas, sent the daughters on their way home while they enjoyed a rest. The escort was surprised, and so thoroughly defeated, that only seven of them made it back to camp at Elkhorn Tavern.

On the following December 7 at Prairie Grove, the Federals under Generals Herron and Blunt tangled with the Confederates under General Hindman. It was a close battle, but Hindman, because of a serious shortage of supplies, ordered a retreat to Fort Smith. Again, as a result of small bands breaking away from the Confederate Army, guerilla activities increased east of the Federal line of operations, especially in Madison County.

The Federal strategy was then to leave General Blunt to handle the Federal cause in Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas, and for General Herron to take his 5000 troops northeast to the Mississippi River to join General Grant in his push toward Vicksburg. As a result of word reaching the youthful Herron (he was only 25) of guerilla activities around Huntsville and to clear the path for his northeasterly march, he sent Lt. Colonel James Stewart, then stationed at Fayetteville, to Huntsville to disperse the guerillas. His report (page 155, Volume XXII, Series I, War of Rebellion) stated:

" I found the enemy, 150 strong, had been in there all night of the 18th, and committed depredations on all of the Union families in that vicinity, more especially that of Judge Murphy, (Isaac Murphy), the ladies of whose family they stripped of everything but what was on their bodies, leaving them in destitute condition.

After leaving Huntsville some of them proceeded down War Eagle Creek, others toward Carrollton, scattering all through the country in small parties of twos and threes. I caught 15 stragglers from the rebel army and patrolled them. They had all left the army immediately after the Battle of Prairie Grove."

The march of Herron's Army to the Mississippi began in early January, 1863. He and his

Staff, including Isaac Murphy, reached Huntsville about January 7 and left on the early morning of the 10th . On the 12th, Herron wrote from Carrollton (pre-civil war county seat of Carroll County, 30 miles northeast of Huntsville) to his superior, General Schofield:

"I have tried at this place, having made but slow progress moving over these terrible roads with artillery and wagons. The country is full of bushwhackers, who annoy us very much. Our men shot one or two the other side of Huntsville."

Heron had previously reported to his supervisors on the 7th that Jackman (surely

Confederate Colonel Sidney D. Jackman) had a large group of guerillas on King's River to the east of Huntsville. These fast striking troops were feared by the Federals, who often executed guerillas, or supposed guerillas.

However, after Herron and his staff had left Huntsville on the 10th, an out rage occurred

there which has received little historical notice. Considering the number of men murdered, their standing in Northwest Arkansas, and the triviality of their offense, if any, this certainly was a serious outrage. It was more cruel than the well known execution of 10 men by the Federal General John McNeil at Palmyra, Missouri on the previous October 18th.

Note: The first notice that the writer of this article saw of this outrage appears on page 24 of James R. Berry's memoirs, which were written on 1906. The memoirs stated:

"The soldiers (Herron's) took a great many prisoners, put them in the guard house, and foraged considerably over the country. The command was on the move east. The night before the army left I the early morning, twelve of the men in the guard house were called out and put in charge of a squad of soldiers and marched about a mile east of town and were shot to death by this squad of soldiers.

They were in the most part some of the best citizens in the country. W.M. Berry, Boatright, Moody (first names not given), and others were among those shot. Hugh Berry, son of W.M. Berry, lived over until the next day and told the circumstances of the shooting.

There was evidence to prove that one E.D. Ham, who was bitter against some of these men that were shot, instigated the whole matter; since he told on the night before the shooting in the morning, that they would be killed. He had this talk, as it was charged, 10 miles west of Huntsville.

The men were buried, some in Huntsville, and other's in the Alabama (now called Alabam) cemetery. That killing caused great bitterness in Madison County, and was an outrageous murder of these men."

Berry's memoirs mentions this outrage in two places (the other one on page 3), and this other one implicates an unnamed Federal provost Marshall of Herron's. A very little man and much given to whiskey and was said to be drunk most of the time."

James R. Berry was living in Little Rock at the time of this occurrence, but returned to Huntsville in late April 1863, and his account of the affair, though fresh in the minds of the people, was taken from others' remarks, not his own observations. However, in all subsequent investigations, no evidence was found that implicated E.D. Ham.

Note: Not then being able to secure any local information, the writer of this article made a search of Volume XXII, Series I, Part 2 of War of Rebellion which cover's Herron's

march to the Mississippi River. A letter was found on page 74, dated January 25, 1863, from Colonel James O. Gower, 1st Iowa Cavalry, 3rd Division, to Colonel C.W. Marsh, assistant adjutant general. It was written from Forsythe, Missouri, which was in the line of march of Herron's army. The letter stated:

I have called upon Lieutenant Colonel Baldwin (Lt. Col. Elias B. Baldwin, 8th Missouri Cavalry, 3rd Division Army of the Frontier) to furnish a written statement of what disposition was made of the nine prisoner's of war (referred to in Colonel Huston's letter) supposed to have been murdered at Huntsville, Arkansas, on the 10th, inst. And will report as soon as the matter can be investigated. I have no doubt but that some officer of this division ordered these men shot, and regard it myself as a great outrage."

This search failed to find the report of Elias B. Baldwin or the letter from Colonel Huston to Colonel Gower. However, the above letter verified the mass killing and establishes the date as January 10, 1863. Thus the writer made a search for the gravestones of the Berry's, Boatright, and Moody, and an inquiry to determine the names of the remaining persons murdered.

Note: The following is the second part of Mr. Smith's article printed in Section B, Northwest Arkansas Times, Fayetteville, Arkansas, Sunday, September 15, 1974.

In the Huntsville Cemetery about 100 feet south of the gravestone of Isaac Murphy, father-in-law of James R. Berry and Governor of Arkansas 1864-68, stands the gravestone of Chesley H. Boatright. The inscription shows `Born May 10, 1824, Died January 10, 1863.' Investigations show that he was a Presbyterian minister.

In the Alabam Cemetery (four miles northeast of Huntsville) appears, side by side, the stones of William and Hugh Berry. The Hugh Berry stone has been broken and shows

No dates. The stone of William M. Berry has eroded but shows `Birth 1802 and death (very dim) January 10, 1863.'

No other stones, which show this date, have been found in near-Huntsville Cemeteries. However, these three show Masonic ensigns. Larry Bohanan, a descendant of Chesley Boatright and a reliable historian and genealogist of Madison County affirm that Chesley H. Boatright as well as John W. Moody were among the men murdered, but except for the two Berry's, he could not give the names of others murdered.

The Army career of Elias B. Baldwin as supplied by the National Archives and Records shows that he enlisted at Young America, Illinois, August 1, 1861, for three years. He was then 27 years old. He was promoted to provost position as Lieutenant ColColonel January 7, 1863, three days before this murder. His orders at the time of his appointment were to keep the soldiers in line, infantrymen off horses, and to prevent the men's plundering, shooting, and otherwise violating orders - entirely different from this occurrence.

He resigned the commission January 27 when his arrest for this crime was ordered. He was arrested by Colonel Gower when he reached Forsythe on the 29th. He was sent from Forsythe to Colonel C.B. Crabbe, commander at Springfield, Missouri. He was to be held there and tried before a military commission consisting of General J.M. Schofield, Thomas Ewing, Jr. (a brother in law of General William T. Sherman), W.M. Hubbard, judge, and another whose name on this report is illegible.

The charge against him was violation off the 6th Article of War for the murder of prisoners of war, C.H. Boatright, W.M. Berry, Hugh Berry, Askin Hughes, John Hughes, Watson Stevens, J.W. Moody, and Young, called Parson Young; and "this before the C.H. Boatright et al had been tried, convicted, and sentenced to death by the legally constituted authority of the United States."

He was also charged with contempt and disrespect toward his commanding officer for failing to comply with a written request from James C. Gower dated January 24, 1863, ordering him to send a written statement as to what disposition was made of certain persons turned over to him as provost Marshall.

Baldwin did not go with the soldiers to do his shooting. Instead, they were sent under Sergeant Payne (first name not given), who, in his defense, fell back upon his orders from Baldwin. This testimony was not contradicted.

Baldwin's defense was simple: That whatever was done, was done with the knowledge and consent of the general commanding and others then and there present and not on his part. He asked that others then far away in the Southeast, Missouri and elsewhere including General Herron and Judge Murphy be brought back as his defense witnesses.

Herron was then recuperating from illness and replied on March 10th that he did not know of the affair until after it happened and that it did not meet with his approbation. Baldwin must have known that General Herron, who was moving his army of 5000 rapidly toward the Mississippi River to join General Grant, could not return to Springfield merely for his defense.

Herron's illness could have been severe, for a Confederate scout or spy in late April reported to the Confederate forces that Herron was back in Springfield seriously ill and not expected to live. Judge Murphy (Isaac Murphy) was then in St. Louis where his daughters had been taken from Huntsville because of harassment by guerillas after the Federal Army passed through.

His daughters were ill in St. Louis, and Louisa died March 1 and Laura died March 13. Murphy, if he received the summons, had family trouble enough to excuse him from returning to Springfield. No written report of his is shown in the papers.

Since these two and others for the defense were not present, Baldwin was not further tried. Due to a multitude of illnesses, he was adjudged by the medical department as unfit for service and was given an honorable discharge June 24, 1863. He then lived in Illinois a year, in Iowa four years, in Franklin County, Kansas a year, and in Labette County, Kansas until he died March 21, 1921. There near Cheops and Oswego, Kansas he acquired a substantial farm, drew his veteran's pension, and served two successive terms as clerk of the District Court.

This outrage occurred on the McMinn Farm, formerly known as the Vaughn Farm, about one mile east of Huntsville on the banks of the Vaughn Branch and on the road that led to Carrollton. Vaughn's, (Bert Vaughn and others), and the present owner, Bill Coleman, can point out the spot where the men were shot down and five of them buried.

For nearly a century, a bed of mussel shells, placed there lovingly by children, marked the spot. Mrs. Elizabeth Vaughn, grandmother of Bert Vaughn of Huntsville, was then a widow, living about a quarter mile away. This lady left the story about one of the men fell to the ground after the shooting began, and acted as if shot.

One of the executioners felt that he was acting dead, and fired a bullet into his head. The shot knocked out some of his teeth and caused him to lose blood. In spite of the pain he crawled to the Vaughn farm and begged for help. He was nursed back to health by Mrs. Vaughn and a month later left for Mississippi.

He came back one time after the war to see the place of the tragedy, but left again never to return. His name has not been known if he was one of the eight listed in the charge against Baldwin, but perhaps he was. There is no reason to disbelieve grandmother Vaughn's story as repeated by her grandson, Bert Vaughn.

This W.M. Berry was a person of good standing is certain. He was the brother of State Senator John Berry, who had died in 1856. This John Berry was the father of James R. Berry, the son-in-law of Isaac Murphy, who also wrote the memoirs already mentioned. James R. Berry also served as the auditor of Arkansas from 1864 to 1866 and from 1868 to 1872 and again in 1874. W.M. Berry was also the brother of James M. Berry, the father of James Henderson Berry who served Arkansas as Speaker of the House of Representatives in 1874, Governor of Arkansas 1883-1885, and the United States Senator from 1885 to 1907.

This nephew of the murdered W.M. Berry was one of the most honored men in Arkansas politics in the latter half of the last century. The descendants of W.M. Berry have held prominent positions in Northwest Arkansas until this date.

Chesley Boatright and John W. Moody were also prominent men, and Watson Stevens was a cousin of the Berry's. Parson Young was surely the Baptist minister, R.C. Young, listed in the 1860 census, but not mentioned later. The two murdered Hughes are unknown, but could have been from the adjoining southeastern part of Washington County, where a large number of Hughes has lived from then until now.

Mrs. Lizzie J. Mitchell, a grand niece of W.M. Berry, wrote in her memoirs at her home in Los Angeles, California in 1914-15. This was published in the Madison County Genealogist in 1971, Volume IIId. It states:

" . . . . . some of the men from Huntsville, officers of the blue uniform, came out and told these old men to come to Huntsville and take the oath of allegiance. Their wives did not want them to go but thought if they could stay at home and save what little was left, it would be better.

I know some that went, one Uncle Bill Berry, Hugh Berry, Chesley Boatright, one cousin, Watt Stevens. The ones I have named were in the crowd of nine men in all who were brought out to the McRunnels farm and were told to prepare for death. Told them to turn their backs and shot every one of the old respectful men, left them for dead."

Other details would be repetition. At least, this memoir gives some explanation as to why they were brought in to Huntsville. The name McRunnels is surely an error of forgetfulness in old age, for Huntsville people say it was McMinn.

This lady was 20 years old at the time of the outrage and had lived most of her life there. She was fairly well educated for that time, and had the facts as well as could be expected. Surely James O. Gower tried to bring the guilty to justice, but justice was handicapped by the war that was then raging. Justice is always handicapped by was; and it was handicapped by the hatreds that grew out of the guerilla warfare and other acts of war. No claim is here made that either side perpetrated more atrocities than the other.

At this date, we can only remember these men. They were not criminals and perhaps were not guerillas, and the sacrifices that they were compelled to make should be recorded in history.

Since the guerillas were the only opposition that this army met in its advances, they were a very irritating threat, and often met by executions. The authorities already cited show that the shooting of guerillas continued all the while, and this policy was surely a possible factor in this tragedy.

Hateful remarks, or strenuous ones, were often made by political or military leaders with no thought that some over zealous inferior would take the remark as an order and proceed to commit a revengeful crime. This occurrence had the markings of such an affair. At this date, we can only remember and honor these leading people for their needless sacrifice.

"Egbert Garnett Boatright was born in Buckingham, Virginia, October 1st 1826, and died at the home of his cousin Arthur Lufkin, in Newton, Iowa, July 30th 1914, aged 87 years, 9 months and 29 days. Death was the result of hemorrhage of the brain, brought on by a severe cold, contracted a few days prior to the attack. In company with his daughter, Miss Virginia, Father Boatright had been visiting relatives and friends in Iowa and Nebraska, and had stopped at Newton on their way home, to visit the Russell and Murphy families, when he was suddenly stricken with what proved to be his last illness.

 

"On March 4th, 1855, Father Boatright was united in marriage to Miss Terese Oldaker, and to this union six children were born: four daughters and two sons: Analiza, who died in infancy; Josephine Clerissa, who died in 1912; Miss Virginia Russell Boatright, Miss Mary Price Boatright, of Russell, Ohio; Geo.W. Boatright, of Stuart, Iowa; and H.E. Boatright, of this city. Mother Boatright, his beloved companion for more than fifty years, passed away at the old home in Russell, Ohio. The golden wedding anniversary of Father and Mother Boatright was very appropriately and joyously observed at the old home on March 4th, 1905.

 

"Funeral services were held at the Lufkin home in Newton on Friday, conducted by Rev. Perdew, of the M.E. Church, whose discourse was especially appropriate; expressing in beautiful sentiment, a most worthy tribute to the noble and useful life of the deceased. Accompanied by G.W. and Miss Virginia Boatright, the remains were taken to the old home at Russell, Ohio, where services were again held on Sunday afternoon, interment taking place in the family lot, where rest the remains of the wife and two daughters.

 

"In early life Father Boatright taught school, and afterwards engaged in the mercantile business. Later, he was appointed Postmaster, and also agent for the B. & O. S. W. R'y, both of which positions he held until a few years ago, when age and ill health made it necessary for him to re-sign, since which time he has been living a quiet, retired life, in the full enjoyment of every comfort and convenience of the evening of his day. He was a lifelong member of the M.E. Church; being a member of the first Board of Trustees of the Church at Russell, Ohio, which was established in 1858; one of his associates being his cousin Sam Russell, now a resident of Newton, Iowa, and who is over eighty years of age.

In politics, Father Boatright was a Republican; a stalwart of the stalwarts; one of those kind of Republicans who stood firm for the first and fundamental principles, regardless of the new and varied ideas attempted to be injected into platforms of recent making.

 

"It was the pleasure of the writer to enjoy an intimate acquaintance with Father Boatright, covering a period of many years; and we knew and appreciated him as one of the grand old men, comprising the cherished list of good, true friends.

76. JESSE STINSON5 BOATRIGHT (WILLIAM4 VON BOATWRIGHT, BENONI (BENJAMINE)3 BOATWRIGHT, JAMES2, JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN))250 was born December 11, 1830 in Kentucky, and died November 09, 1905 in Wagoner, Oklahoma. He married MARY EVALINE "MOLLIE" MILLER October 22, 1852 in Platte County, Missouri. She was born March 01, 1837 in Cooper County, Missouri251, and died January 03, 1910 in Wagoner, Oklahoma252.

Notes for JESSE STINSON BOATRIGHT:

Jesse Stinson Boatright moved from Missouri to Texas about 1860. In 1865 or early 1866, soon after the end of the War for Southern Independence, he moved to Van Buren, Arkansas, where he first went into the hotel business and later opened a general merchandise store on Log Town Hill, which is now part of Van Buren.

About 1880-1882 he moved to Siloam Springs, Arkansas, where he lived for several years before returning to Van Buren about 1891. About 1895 he bought a farm two miles east of Wagoner, Oklahoma, and remained there until his death in 1905. The old home place is now under Fort Gibson Lake.

Jesse was a teacher, farmer, and businessman. He taught in several schools in and near Van Buren, including the old Broadway School which was located at the intersection of Broadway and East Main Street. Many of the Boatright children and grandchildren attended the old Broadway before it was demolished and replaced with the building now (1997) used as city hall.

He was especially proficient in penmanship and at times taught this art to adults in night classes. In the latter part of his life he was connected to the Watts Association, which was organized for the purpose of enrolling all persons of Cherokee blood who could be located. His wife, Mollie, was 1/32 Cherokee.

James Allen Boatright, who is living in Gassville, Arkansas, in 1997, has stated that he believes Jesse enlisted in the Confederate Army with his brother, Francis Alexander, but deserted shortly thereafter and "went to Texas", where he stayed until the end of the war. Some documentation indicates that this may be true, but it has not been confirmed as yet.

 

Material on file with National Archives, Fort Worth, TX

(Transcribed from original by Dennis G. Boatright)

 

(Transcription of a garbled letter by Jesse T. Roberts to Chester Howe, Attorney for Cherokee claims commission, from original material on file with National Archives, Fort Worth, TX.

D. G. Boatright)

Mr. Chester Howe, Atty. Eastern Cherokee Claims, Washington, D.C.

I am mailing to you an abstract of claims acted on and decided by the 4th Board of Comm. and accepted as Cherokees by Blood on the Rolls of 1835 as Eastern Cherokees…was furnished to me by ex-chief John Ross from his Father's Roll of 1835.

I also send you 8 true copies of affidavits of recognized Cherokee Indians in our case, the James Blackburn, Rhoda Blackburn (nee Baugh) and Polly Carter, their daughter who is on Roll of 1835. You will find on the Roll, Richard and Martha Blackburn who we suppose were James and Rhoda Blackburn’s grandson and daughter, the true copies of affidavits under seal of office was filed with the Dawes Comm. Sept. 10th 1896 with the case, as it was rejected, the case was appealed to the U.S. Court of the Western District of I.T., Muskogee, Judge Spri9nger, J. S. Boatright, being authorized agent of the Cherokee Indian Citizenship association & Atty…he laid the case before the Masters, they passed on the case a briefed it, the Judge would not sign it, saying we were non-residents, ignoring the decision of the Supreme Court of the U.S. that said the were Cherokee Indians let them reside where they may, so in the bounds of the U.S. and had indefeasable?? Rights to land & money of the Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory.

As Boatright had appointed me as his legal authorized agent, he wrote me he would appeal our case to the court of claims, he had about 1200 other claims he said he was not able to appeal all. Would make a test case of ours and asked my consent. I told him go ahead, it was some two year, he wrote me the Court had given a decision in our favor and had ordered the case filed with the Secretary of the Interior, he then wrote me as he was getting old and afflicted, he thought it best to turn over his claims to some other atty. and he spoke of M. M. Edmiston then of Viniti, IT, and did so, and recommended me to him as his authorized agent and he died not long after, as he had said the Court was behind two years or more, he did not expect to live to see it to an end. When the decision of Supreme (court) was given in favor of the Eastern and Western Cherokee 1905, and approved by Congress and appropriation made 1906, Edmiston wrote me sent me Power of Atty. for him and you with contract, doing away with all former contracts as I had got about 125 claims for Boatright - the letters commenced coming to me to take their claims at the 50% as they had agreed to give Boatright. I wrote Edmiston of their proposal to take their claims, he wrote me the 50% was too much…the government would kick he thought. Best for me and all to go ahead And get all the claims for him and you and you and him would allow me 10 percent of yours and his 25 percent which I agreed to. Is that right with you, that is for all that is allowed on any app. I got in 190 apps.

It does seem to me as this Blackburn, Baugh and Polly Carter Case has been passed on by the Masters, and Court of Claims, and as it was ordered filed with the Secretary of Interior. It probably was the Case carried to the Supreme Court of the U.S., that there should be any controversy about it.

(Note: the previous sentence was readable, but wording was confused, dgb.)

I have a Brief of our Case giving each family claimant, giving their relationship to James Blackburn, Rhoda Blackburn, nee, Baugh & Polly Carter which might be of benefit to you.

I have seen some few letters from Comm. Guion Miller asking questions two of his, one to Milbus Fuller of Liberty, Clay County, Missouri saying you (sic) claim to your Grandfather Richard C. Fuller of N.C. was enrolled in 1835. ( I do not find his name on Roll) I know his name on Roll of 1835. I send you, you can see for yourself.

….

in claim Nancy Lockard, nee Elliott, to her by Father, Arch Elliott of Tennessee, he says to her he fails to find his name on Roll of 1835 his name is there, I am sorry I have not got their no. on cars so I could give you the no. so that you could call his attention to it - I will get their no.’s so I can refer them to you.

My Mother, Eliza Roberts, nee Blackburn, her address was Moseby, Clay County Missouri, now Carthage, Jasper County, Missouri, never got her card with no. of claim.

Wm. L Roberts, Jr. of Moseby, Clay County, Mo. and his wife, Eliza Roberts, nee Dagby, Moseby, Clay Co., Mo. never got their cards (showing claim no.)…now of Harlem, Clay Co., Mo.

Charles H. Roberts of Elmira, Ray Co., Mo., never got his card. These cards never came to the offices. .. you can send their card no. & I will send to them…send all to me.

If any time I can give you any information, I will do so with pleasure. Address me at Elmira, Ray Co., Missouri.

Application No. 7297 Jesse T. Roberts

PS: Write me & let me know if you get all right. I send in two covers.

M. M. Edmiston of Miami, Oklahoma requested me to send these papers.

 

 

 

 

REPORT ON BOATRIGHT CASES

Case No. 7053:

There are a large number of applicants who claim the right to share in the distribution of this fund through one James Blackburn, who originally resided in the state of Virginia, and through his two daughters, Elizabeth Boatright and Rhoda Patterson. It is claimed that James Blackburn was one-half or more Cherokee Indian by blood. It is alleged that James Blackburn came from Virginia to Kentucky about the year eighteen hundred and that he brought his family with him. After living in Kentucky a few years, he died. He was not enrolled in 1835 and probably was not alive as late as that, and of course was not enrolled in 1851, nor do any of his descendants appear to have been enrolled either in 1835 or 1851. Neither he nor is children were living within the Cherokee domain in 1835 or 1851. In fact, it does not appear that he ever lived within the Cherokee domain. On the contrary, his children and their children always lived with the white people and never had anything whatever to do with the Eastern Cherokee tribe of which they were probably never members. These persons seem to have no shadow of a claim as none of their ancestors were ever enrolled, or were parties to the treaties of 1835-6 or 1846. It does not appear that any ancestor ever lived within the Cherokee domain, and these applicants show no connection whatsoever with the Eastern Cherokee. Some members of this family applied for enrollment by the Dawes Commission and were rejected. For the reasons above, the applications of these parties are rejected.

79. FRANCIS ALEXANDER5 BOATRIGHT (WILLIAM4 VON BOATWRIGHT, BENONI (BENJAMINE)3 BOATWRIGHT, JAMES2, JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN))282 was born January 17, 1838 in Kentucky, and died December 27, 1918 in Weleetka, Oklahoma. He married (1) ESTHER AMANDA KITTREL August 22, 1861 in Arkansas. She was born December 19, 1841, and died March 11, 1869 in Crawford County, Arkansas. He married (2) ELIZABETH ANN FRANCES DANNELLS (DANIELS) August 22, 1869 in Van Buren, Arkansas, daughter of EPHRIAM DANNELLS and MARY PIERCE. She was born November 30, 1845 in Georgia, and died January 24, 1932 in Wagoner, Oklahoma.

Notes for FRANCIS ALEXANDER BOATRIGHT:

In October, 1997, in a letter to her grandson, David Cary Rains, Verna Boatright Milstead writes, "My grandfather, Francis Alexander Boatright, was 13 years old when his parents.....left Kentucky in 1851, taking with them all of their children (12), who were all born in Kentucky, and moved to Missouri where they settled in Gentry County. A few years later, Francis Alexander and two of his brothers, Jesse Stinson and Joseph Marion, came to Arkansas and settled in Crawford County.

The Boatrights were pioneer families of Crawford County. Francis Alexander owned and farmed land in the Oak Grove vicinity. His specialty was growing and harvesting sweet potatoes- I wish I could remember the name of the potato. They were extremely large and a rich, red potato. He was referred to as the 'Sweet Potato King' of Crawford County. The farmers brought their produce into Van Buren on Saturday, parking their wagons at the head of Main Street next to the old Frisco depot. In the Van Buren Press-Argus centennial issue (Van Buren's only newspaper), there is a picture of the Saturday farmer's gathering and I am sure Grandpa's wagon was right there.

In about 1916, he sold the farm and moved to Wagoner, Oklahoma. to be near his youngest son. His health had been failing- he had a stroke and died on December 27, 1918.

When we first moved back to Fort Smith (in the early 1970's) your Grandad (James G. "Buck" Milstead) and I drove out to try and find the old farm, but, with so much pavement and new roads, it was a little difficult but, find it we did. We found the man who had bought the place. The old ranch house was gone, but the old red barn was still standing."

 

Francis Alexander served in the Army of the Confederacy. As near as can be determined from available records, he enlisted as a Private on June 27, 1862, and served for the duration of the war. He served the entire time in Companies "C" and "A" in what was variously known as McRae's Regiment, Glenn's Regiment, and Davie's Regiment.

This regiment was organized as the 28th Arkansas Infantry Regiment in July of 1862 under the command of Col. Dandridge McRae, and reorganized into the 36th Arkansas Infantry Regiment approximately in January of 1863. The regiment fought in the battles of Prairie Grove in December of 1862; Helena, Arkansas, in July of 1863; Little Rock, Arkansas, in September of 1863; The Red River Campaign in 1864; and Jenkin's Ferry in 1864. The regiment surrendered on May 26, 1865, and was disbanded.

The family was yet another example of the divisiveness and long lingering bitterness that resulted from the War for Southern Independence. Three of Francis Alexander's brothers served in the war. Joseph Marion enlisted in the 10th Arkansas Infantry, C.S.A., and was killed in service. William Taylor and Jacob Gates enlisted in the Union Army in Missouri. Both survived the war.

Notes for WILLIAM TURNER HARWOOD:

William Turner Harwood's date of birth is uncertain. His obituary indicates that he was 70 years of age when he died in 1897. This would make his date of birth 1826-1827. According to a cemetery survey by Peggy Rogers, his tombstone gives no date of birth and reads, "Died February 14, 1897; Age 72 years." If this is correct, his date of birth would be 1825-1826.

 

 

OBITUARY

 

William Turner HARWOOD - Fort Smith Elevator. (died Feb 14 1897]

"Mr. William T. Harwood, father of our townsman, Mr. J. B. Harwood, died at his home near Huntsville, Madison County, Arkansas, on the 15th ult., aged seventy years. His funeral took place on the 16th and was largely attended.

Mr. Harwood was a native of Virginia. At a very early age he went to

Tennessee with his parents, where he lived until the breaking out of the

Civil war, when he settled in Madison County, where he lived until the day

of his death.

In Madison County Mr. Harwood was recognized as a live, progressive,

up-to-date farmer, and through his admiration for fine stock the wealth of

Madison County was largely increased. He introduced into Madison County

some of the finest breeds of stock, and some of his horses sold for large figures.

Mr. Harwood was a veteran of the Mexican war. He enlisted at the first call

for volunteers and served until the war closed. He took service in a

Tennessee regiment and was assigned to cavalry service, in which he did

some very active work. He served under both Generals Scott and Taylor

and took part in the battles of Vera Cruz, Chepultepec, Cherubusco, Buena

Vista, Monterey and Cerro Gordo. He also participated in a number of other

engagements which are not recorded in history.

Madison County papers speak in the highest terms of Mr. Harwood."

Notes for JOHN MARION BOATRIGHT:

The following obituary is from the Mountain Eagle, Kentucky, newspaper, January 12, 1939 (courtesy of Brian K. Caudill):

"Aged Whitesburg Citizen Is Called"

Disabled and almost an invalid for several years and confined to his home on Solomon Branch of the town John Boatright, around seventy-seven, suffered a severe paralytic stroke some time Monday and passed away Tuesday evening. He was a son of the late G. H. Boatright, Sr., and was a native of Scott County.

When a mere boy he came with his parents to Letcher County where in the years following he married and resided until his death. When a young man he married Mary, the young daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Breeding of Camp Branch. The union was a happy one. Five children, three sons and two daughters, all of whom are married, were born into the family. These are Wm. H Boatright, for a number of years a leading citizen of Benham, Sam, an engineer residing at Jeff, Perry County, and Reuben, of Detroit, Michigan. The two girls, Hattie and Pearl, both married, reside at McRoberts. He leaves, besides his widow, two or three brothers and one sister, Mrs. E. E. Bentley, that we recall.

Notes for MARY ELIZABETH "LIZZIE" SCAFF:

After the death of her husband, James A. Boatright, in Oklahoma in 1910, Lizzie remained in Oklahoma until 1918. She then moved to Colorado and eventually acquired 520 acres of land which she farmed and ranched with hired help.

She married J.V.N. Polk in 1923. She survived her second husband and her son, Fred Boatright, to live to the age of 103. She died in 1965 in Trinidad, Colorado.

Notes for JAMES ALBERT BOATRIGHT:

James A. Boatright was a blacksmith by trade. In the Spring of 1893, after marrying Lizzie Scaff, they moved to Oklahoma and homesteaded 160 acres of land. Three children, one son and two daughters were born to them during this time.

Leaving Oklahoma, the family moved to the Center Point, Texas, area for three years. While there, they became involved with a group of other people who formed a colony and moved to Tampico, Mexico, to grow oranges. Unfortunately, they never could obtain clear title to the land and moved back to Oklahoma, near Arapaho, a year later.

James died in Oklahoma in 1910. One story, unconfirmed, is that he was killed while trying to escape from a burning building.

She was born February 17, 1870 in Arkansas, and died June 02, 1926 in Van Buren , Arkansas.

Notes for FRANKLIN BOWDEN BOATRIGHT:

In October, 1997, in a letter to her grandson, David Cary Rains, Verna Rowena Boatright Milstead writes, "Franklin Bowden Boatright, the second son of Francis Alexander Boatright and Elizabeth Ann Frances Dannells (sometimes spelled Daniels) married Alta Crawford........March 10, 1895, in Crawford County, (Van Buren), Arkansas. The first three years of their married life were spent on a farm near Oak Grove, east of Van Buren. They left the farm and moved to Van Buren where, in 1901, he was employed by the Iron Mountain Railway Co., first as a fireman, then as a locomotive engineer. (The Iron Mountain later became the Missouri Pacific) He worked for the Missouri Pacific until 1930 when he retired on disability as a result of a stroke. He died on October 25, 1935, at the age of 61.

Before my father's stroke, he was very interested and active in the Masonic order and was a member of the Van Buren Blue Lodge No. 6, Western Arkansas Consistory(Scottish Rite), DeMolay, and the Royal Arch. I think it is interesting that my grandfather (Francis Alexander Boatright), my father (Franklin Bowden Boatright), my husband (James Gilispie Milstead), and my son-in-law (David Cleveland Rains) were all members of the Van Buren Masonic Lodge. My grandfather's membership certificate is dated 1877. I have the original certificate and a copy is in my history album.

Personally, my father was a very kind, soft-spoken, mild mannered man. He had no hobbies--lived a very simple life--devoted to his family."

"HISTORY IF NORTHWEST MISSOURI 1901"

(Hand written notes: Edited by Walter Welliami? 1914 3 vols.. this is Vol.. II)

J.E. Boatright. One of the oldest homesteads in Nodaway Township of Andrew County is the Boatright farm, in section 36, which has been under cultivation and improvement for more than half a century, and its present proprietor, J.E. Boatright, was born there more than half a century ago. He is a farmer and stock raiser, a thorough business man, and among other good things that come into his life is the head of a happy home and the father of a large family of children.

J.E. Boatright was born on his present farm September 10, 1863, a son of Joseph and Sarah (Davidson) Boatright. His father, who was a native of Gentry County, Missouri, enlisted in the Confederate army at the beginning of the war and was killed in service. This son is the only child. The mother was born in Tennessee, was brought to Andrew County by her parents when

she was a child, and lived on the old farm until her death in December, 1900, at the age of sixty-three.

J.E.Boatright grew up on the homestead farm, gained his education in the country schools, and has been a practical farmer and manager of the resources of the soil since boyhood. His farm comprises 150 acres of good land in Nodaway Township, and in 1911 he improved it with a handsome modern home of ten rooms. He also rents another farm, and the chief feature of

his business is the raising of cattle and hogs.

Politically Mr.. Boatright is a democrat and is a member of the Mount Vernon Baptist Church. His fraternal affiliations are with the Modern Brotherhood of America and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. On October 24, 1890, he Married Eunice Jane Deming. Mrs.. Boatright was born in Andrew County October 21, 1871, a daughter of William W. And Isyphenia (Files) Deming, her father was a native of Vermont and her mother of Andrew County. Her parents were married in 1870, and the

father died in March, 1894, while the mother is still living in this county. The children of Mr.. and Mrs.. Boatright are: Ernest, who died at the age of one year; Elmer a farmer in Nodaway Township; Glenna; Floyd; Marie; Harold; Arthur; Mildred, who died at the age of three months; Margaret; and Marjorie, who died when one year of age.

(NOTE: The above statement that J. E.'s father was born in Gentry County, Missouri, is incorrect. He was born in Kentucky.)- D. C. Rains

Notes for WILLIAM VOLNEY BOATRIGHT:

Source: "Heritage"- The official Publication of the Crawford County Historical Society, Vol. X IV, July, 1970.

William Volney Boatright was born near Alma, Arkansas, and was the son of William Newton Boatright and Eugenia Garner, the second child in a family of ten children.

William finished the Van Buren schools in 1895 and enrolled in the Arkansas Industrial University in Fayetteville. After 3 1/2 years, he had to drop out for lack of money. He held several low paying jobs in the area until 1902 when he was appointed Chief Deputy of the Crawford County Sheriff's Office by Sheriff Jim Pitcock. He also served in this capacity under Sheriff Bill Garrett.

In 1904 his father died, leaving the mother with six minor children. "This sad bereavement placed the family responsibility on me, " he recalled, and he began to look for increased income.

In 1906 he was elected County Clerk and served two terms. Upon the completion of his second term, he established a general real estate business in Van Buren and was quite successful. He was one of the organizers of the Van Buren Trust Company in 1911 and served as director until 1913 when the company was consolidated with Citizen's Bank, where he also served as a director. In 1919 he was elected vice-president and remained in this position until 1934 when he was appointed District Supervisor of the Home Owner's Loan Corporation. He was also associated with several other mortgage-lending institutions beginning in 1939.

In 1940 he moved his family across the river to Fort Smith.

In the early years of his marriage, William was a member of the First Baptist Church in Van Buren while his wife attended the Wood Memorial Christian Church. William eventually joined the Christian Church and after the move to Fort Smith, he and his wife joined the First Christian Church in that city. William served at various times as Deacon, Trustee, Elder, and Elder Emeritus.

225. VERNA ROWENA7 BOATRIGHT (FRANKLIN BOWDEN6, FRANCIS ALEXANDER5, WILLIAM4 VON BOATWRIGHT, BENONI (BENJAMINE)3 BOATWRIGHT, JAMES2, JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN)) was born April 26, 1899 in Van Buren, Arkansas/Van Buren, Crawford Co., AR. She married JAMES GILISPIE "BUCK" MILSTEAD462,463,464 April 12, 1919 in Fort Smith, Arkansas, son of STARKS MILSTEAD and LOUISIANA VALENTINE. He was born August 16, 1898 in Grant Parish, Louisiana, and died January 26, 1980 in Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Notes for JAMES GILISPIE "BUCK" MILSTEAD:

James G. Milstead was the youngest of nine children. His date of birth was August 16, 1898. The only record of the event was the family bible which was destroyed in a house fire. When he served in the Army during World War II, his mother had to sign an affidavit attesting to his date of birth as there was no other documentation in existence. As he would have been one year too old to serve, his mother, at his request, attested that his year of birth was 1899. As a result, the year of birth as shown in his Army records is incorrect.

His given name was "Gilispie". He added the "J." himself at a young age and used the initials "J.G.". It is not exactly clear how, due to differing family memories, but the "J" evolved into James. Eventually, his nickname of "Buck" took precedence and that is what he was most often called by family and friends, though his wife called him "Jim" or "Jimmy". Occasionally, one of his older siblings could be heard calling him Gilispie, but that became rare as time went on.

He went to work for the Missouri Pacific Railroad on July 8, 1918, and worked for the railroad until he retired on August 16, 1964. At the outbreak of World War II he was General Mechanical Foreman at the Coffeyville, Kansas, yard. He was granted leave on August 6, 1943, to enter the Army Transportation Corps where he was commissioned a Captain in the Rail Division and was assigned as a Railway Master Mechanic, Fourth Transportation Zone, HQ, Atlanta, Georgia. The Fourth Zone included Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida. He was responsible for the maintenance and repair of all rolling stock at installations within the zone. He was also responsible for 1054 government owned railway cars and 61 hospital cars. He was also personally responsible for the construction of a modern rail, heavy repair shop at Fort Benning, Georgia.

An article in the Atlanta Constitution during the war read as follows:

"Starting on September, 1944, with an old airplane hanger that was filled with obsolete machinery, Major James G. Milstead, Fourth Zone Master Mechanic, who in civilian life had served 29 years with the Missouri Pacific Railroad, has built this former shed into a modern railroad repair shop.

In doing this, Major Milstead has saved the government thousands of dollars. He took some discarded rails that had once been used on Fort Benning's 60 centimeter railroad and used them for beams in building two new units for the shops. In making these new buildings he only used salvaged material. The only expense was $245 for glass.

Major Milstead has also installed a brass foundry in the shop. Brass bushings and fittings have been very scarce. The major salvaged enough brass around the camp to almost supply the foundry."

He received a promotion to Major on August 31, 1945, and was later separated from service in April of 1946. He was sent to Dupo, Illinois, by the Missouri Pacific and re-assigned to his position as General Mechanical Foreman until November 30, 1946, when he was recalled into the Army as an instructor in the Army Transportation School, Fort Eustis, Virginia. On May 1, 1947, he was discharged and sent to St. Louis, Missouri, by the railroad. A year later he was transferred to Alexandria, Louisiana, his home state, and worked there as General Mechanical Foreman until his retirement in 1964.

His grandson, David Cary Rains, was going to college across the river from Alexandria in Pineville from 1963-1967, and both during this time period and later, when he was a state policeman in the same area, had occasion to speak to numerous railroad men who had worked with and for his grandfather. All of these men, without exception, spoke extremely highly of "Buck" Milstead. Many described him in almost exactly the same words by saying, "He is the finest man I've ever worked with."

297. MARILYN DOLORES8 MILSTEAD (VERNA ROWENA7 BOATRIGHT, FRANKLIN BOWDEN6, FRANCIS ALEXANDER5, WILLIAM4 VON BOATWRIGHT, BENONI (BENJAMINE)3 BOATWRIGHT, JAMES2, JAMES BOATWRIGHT1 (ALLEN)) was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She married CAPTAIN, U.S.N. DAVID CLEVELAND RAINS505,506,507 September 06, 1942 in Coffeyville, Kansas, son of HARRY RAINS and ELLA CAMPBELL. He was born in Van Buren , Arkansas.

Notes for CAPTAIN, U.S.N. DAVID CLEVELAND RAINS:

David Cleveland Rains was born and raised in Van Buren, Crawford County, Arkansas. While attending Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas, he was introduced by a mutual friend to Marilyn Milstead. Marilyn was attending Coffeyville Junior College, Coffeyville, Kansas, and David transferred there, beginning the Spring semester of 1941. He graduated in May of 1941.

While in Coffeyville, David also received airplane pilot training and received his license in June, 1941.

In September, 1941, he joined the U.S. Border Patrol and was stationed in Miami, Florida, when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. He was assigned to one of the teams rounding up aliens, subversives, and suspected enemy agents in Miami and then was transferred to West Virginia to guard many of those who had been interned.

Throughout this period, he continued to court Marilyn and in September of 1942, they married.

In January, 1943, he joined the Navy, receiving a direct commission due to the fact that he was already a licensed pilot. After specialized training in Corpus Christi, Atlanta, and Jacksonville, he was assigned to Miami as a flight instructor for the Grumann TBF Torpedo Bomber, known as the "Avenger". He remained in this position until August, 1945, when he received orders for the Pacific; however, the Japanese surrendered in September, 1945, his orders were changed, and by January, 1946, he had been discharged from the Navy and was back in Miami in the Border Patrol.

Border Patrol life did not suit him and in January, 1947, he received a commission in the regular Navy and settled into what became his life's career.

Except for two years as navigator on the U.S.S. Pine Island, a seaplane tender, and the last two years of his service when he served as Chief of Staff for the 8th Naval District in New Orleans, he spent his entire career in naval aviation.

In 1947 and 1948, he flew the PB4Y-2 "Privateer", the Navy's single tail version of the B-24. During these years, he spent time in Guam, China, the Philippines, and several other locations in the Far East. The service in China was particularly interesting as he flew operations in Peking, Shanghai, and many points in between. This was the time the communists were conquering China and it is still unclear to family members exactly what David's assignments were in that country. He doesn't discuss it.

In the early '50's he flew the AJ-3 photo reconnaissance plane. An unusual aircraft, it had two turbo props and a jet in the rear. With its three man crew, it flew high and fast, and he, once again, flew numerous sorties over China.

Some of the other positions he has held are Operations Officer for FAW III, Brunswick, Maine, Asst. Chief of Staff for AswForLant, Norfolk, Virginia, Commander, NAS Brunswick, Brunswick, Maine, and Chief of Staff for ComFairQuonset, Quonset Point, Rhode Island. He was also a graduate of the prestigious Naval War College, Newport, Rhode Island.

In February, 1972, he retired from the Navy with the rank of Captain (O-6) and moved to Fort Smith, Arkansas.
