"History of Washington Parish" by Hon. Prentiss B. Carter July 15, 2008

"The History of Bogalusa, The `Magic City' of Louisiana" by Amy Quick, The Louisiana Historical Quarterly, Vol. 29, No. 1, January 1946. The Louisiana Historical Society has this article online but you'll have to join the Louisiana Historical Society before viewing it (or check it out at the Washington Parish Library).

Who cut down the 1st tree in Bogalusa?

This is my transcription of his obituary:

James Madison McLENDON / McCLENDON (b: May 11, 1848 - d: Aug 26, 1929; buried in Adams Cemetery) married Elizabeth "Sissy," ADAMS. He was 81 years old.

James Madison McLendon, the man who chopped down the first pine tree on the site of what is now the thriving city of Bogalusa, has succumbed to Father Time. He passed away at the home of his daughter, Miss Mary McLendon, in Adamstown, Monday morning, at the ripe old age of 81.

"Uncle Jimmy," as he was affectionately known, had been in splendid health for a person of his age, until a few months ago, when he began failing, going into a gradual decline.

There was no ceremony when he felled the first tree in what was then a virgin forest, extending in every direction for miles distant. He was one of the first employees engaged by the vanguard of the Great Southern Lumber Company, to clear the site for what was destined to be the largest saw mill in the world, and where a modern city of 16,000 citizens, and where several large industries are now located, and it fell to him to hew down the first tree. That was in the year 1905, and it was not until thirteen years later, he informed the late Col. W. H. Sullivan he had the ax in his possession and would gladly present it to him.

It was at the dedication of the City Hall, May 11, 1918, the axe was presented to Col. Sullivan, who in turn presented it to the city, where it now reposes in a glass case in the City Hall. On that occasion, "Uncle Jimmie" was presented with a $50 Liberty Bond by several of his friends. On numerous occasions since that date he has been a guest of honor at public functions, where he took pleasure in reminiscing over the pioneer days of the parish, and in his part in clearing out the wilderness of pine forests.

Although born in Georgia, he had resided in Mississippi and Louisiana since his early youth, and had been a resident of this section of the country for almost forty years. Until old age forced his retirement, he had engaged in the timber industry, and was for many years employed by the Great Southern Lumber Company.

He was a member of the Baptist Church, and of the Masonic fraternity, belonging to the Picayune lodge. This organization had charge of the funeral at the grave, Tuesday afternoon, and was assisted by the Rev. A. C. King, the deceased's pastor for many years; Rev. T. A. Bennett, a friend of long standing, and Rev. S. C. Rushing. Interment was in Adams Cemetery.

He is survived by his widow and one daughter, Miss Mary McLendon, with whom he and his wife were making their home at the time of his death.

A large number of floral offerings, and the messages of condolence and visits to his late residence by persons in all walks of life, gave mute, but conclusive evidence of the esteem in which he was held in the community where he had long resided.

Source: unknown. The obituary was sent to me along with his death certificate which I had request from the Louisiana Secretary of State.

Elizabeth "Sissy," ADAMS McClendon (b: Aug. 10, 1866 - d: Feb. 28, 1957; buried in Adams Cemetery) was the daughter of Sherwood W. ADAMS and Alicia MANNING Adam.

Bogalusa: The Magic City (The Birth -- And Growth -- Of A City) by Ginn and Williams. See The Daily News article about this book below on how it can be ordered. I ordered my through Barnes and Nobles Bookstore.

"... J. L. McClendon cut the first tree to begin the job, and Joe Collect served as his water boy. The ax McClendon used is in the mayor's office at City Hall. ... (page 26, Bogalusa: The Magic City by Ginn and Williams)

Ben Sellers cut the 1st (1908) and last (1938) log at the Great Southern Lumber Company Sawmill:

"... (T)he mill would start at 9 o'clock on the morning of October 17, 1908. From the siren of the power house, at the appointed hour, came a mighty blast. Crowds gathered on the overhead runway in the mill from which could be seen every step in the manufacture of lumber.... There were many visitors, including newspaper men and representatives of trade journals, who came from different parts of the country to watch the spectacle. ... Ben Sellers had the honor of sawing the first log. ..." -- Bogalusa Story by C. W. GOODYEAR, page 99.

"In April, 1938, the last of the Great Southern Lumber Company's virgin timber was manufactured into lumber in the Bogalusa sawmill. Ben Sellers cut the first log thirty years before and it was he who cut the last. The occasion was not a happy one. The few who gathered in the mill to watch the finish heard in the drone of the saws the death knell of a Goodyear lumber business that dated back sixty-two years to the days when Frank H. Goodyear made his start in Pennsylvania." -- Bogalusa Story by C. W. GOODYEAR, page 205.

Try searching for common misspelling of the surname (last name) and well as the given names (first and middle names). When searching for cemetery, also try cemetary; or when searching for genealogy, try geneology; etc.

This may be Mildred L. Gillies (1895 – 1954). Uncle Ed may be Edward E. Gillies (1893 - 1953) but from the 1920 Census, it appears he is her husband who ran a candy store. Both were born in Michigan. Uncle Ed could have a different last name and the choice of postcards, N. O. G. N. R. R. Shops, may indicate he was doing some sales work and went on to New Orleans after visiting Bogalusa:

Maps of Louisiana and Washington Parish (Washington Parish was established in 1819 and Bogalusa was incorporated in 1914.)

OLD LOUISIANA MAPS (pre-1923)
The maps are from various publishers and therefore the content and quality vary. Images of the other maps coming soon. Maps can be a valuable to genealogists because County name, boundaries, etc. change. You should be able to see the 100 dpi (smaller file size) versions fine. Use the 200 dpi for printouts. Save the file to your computer, then open with your photo editing software (Microsoft's Picture-It Publisher, Corel Photo-Paint, etc.) and print using the printer set up to "print to fit" (or "print to page") the paper size you have. Some would best be printed using "Landscape" rather than "Portrait."
Click on this button to enlarge/reduce map after it opens in the Internet Explorer Web browser. If you don't see this button, click on the map.
Please do not link to these images directly because I would like to promote Bogalusa & Washington Parish, Louisiana, as well as Freepages which host this web site for free! Request a Freepage web site! Use this link OLD LOUISIANA MAPS which is formatted to open a "new web browser window." That way, your visitors will still have the previous web browser "window" open to your web site.
