Notes


MCCULLOCH. (See also Capt. Benjamin McCulloch). (From the New Handbook of Texas.) Henry Eustace McCulloch (1816-1895), early pioneer, Texas Ranger, and Confederate officer, son of Alexander and Frances (LeNoir) McCulloch, was born in Rutherford County, Tennessee, on December 6, 1816. Although he played an important role in military affairs in early Texas, he received fewer accolades than his more famous cohorts John S. (Rip) Ford, John C. (Jack) Hays, and his older brother, Benjamin McCulloch. In the 1830s Ben and Henry McCullochs carried on several economic enterprises. They traveled the Mississippi River on log rafts to various markets, and by the end of the decade they had moved to Gonzales to survey and locate lands. In 1839, in the political struggles at Gonzales, Henry McCulloch shot and killed Reuben Ross, after the latter, intoxicated and obnoxious, drew his pistols. The angular­featured, gentle­looking McCulloch joined the Texas Rangers in the heyday of their role as citizen soldiers against Indians and Mexican troops. In the battle of Plum Creek in 1840 against the Comanches, he scouted, fought with distinction, and was wounded. In addition, he served as a lieutenant in Hays's rangers in their military operations against the Comanches and Mexican nationals. In 1842 in the attack on San Antonio and retreat by Mexican troops, McCulloch scouted, infiltrated enemy lines seeking information, and participated in the battle of Salado Creek.


For the next two decades he mixed his military career with other ventures. In 1843 he was elected sheriff of Gonzales and began a merchandising career there. The following year he moved his business to Seguin. During the Mexican War and afterward, he served as a captain of a volunteer company guarding the Indian frontier. He became especially adept at organizing regular ranger patrols in intervals from different camps to cover a designated area. In the early 1850s McCulloch served in the state legislature (both houses) from Guadalupe County, and at the end of the decade he accepted an appointment as United States marshal for the Eastern District of Texas. He served as a high­ranking Confederate officer during the Civil War. As Texas left the Union, he assumed command of the posts on the northwestern frontier from Camp Colorado to the Red River and used Texas secessionist troops to accept the surrender of federal forces. Given the rank of colonel by the Confederate Congress, McCulloch organized the First Regiment, Texas Mounted Riflemen, in 1861. This body of troops slowed down penetration of the western frontier by Indians through a system of patrols and small­scale engagements. After promotion to brigadier general, McCulloch commanded the Northern Sub­District of Texas from 1863 to the end of the war. In this role he faced the threats of Indian raids and the movement of Union forces. He also had to deal with the activities of draft dodgers, deserters, and bushwhackers. At one time he tried unsuccessfully to arrest William Quantrill for robbery and murder. With the war ended, McCulloch went home to Seguin with an armed escort for protection against deserters, who swore to take his life. After the Civil War he remained in the limelight. In 1874 he assisted the newly elected governor, Richard Coke, in removing Edmund J. Davis from the executive offices. Early in 1876, as a reward for his years of service, McCulloch was given the superintendency of the Deaf and Dumb Asylum (later the Texas School for the Deaf). Here his lax and inept administration brought about a legislative investigation that made him resign his position in 1879. He was married to Jane Isabella Ashby in 1840. He died on March 12, 1895, in Seguin, and was buried in San Geronimo Cemetery.

McCULLOCH, Henry Eustace, soldier, was born in Rutherford county, Tenn., Dec. 6, 1816; son of Lieut. Alexander McCulloch. He engaged in rafting on the Mississippi, and at the outbreak of the Florida war of 1836 he served as a volunteer. He removed to Texas in 1837 and engaged in land surveying. He was married, in 1840, to Jane Isabella Ashby. He was appointed tax-collector for Gonzales county in 1840. He was elected captain of four different volunteer companies during the war with Mexico; raised a company of rangers in 1850, of which he was elected captain, and engaged in several skirmishes with hostile Indians. He was mustered out of service, Nov. 4, 1851, and returned to Texas, where he engaged in farming and stock-raising. He was a representative in the state legislature, 1853-55; state senator, 1855-59; and U.S. marshal for the eastern district of Texas, 1859-61. He was appointed by the session convention a colonel with authority to recruit a regiment of volunteers, with which he captured U.S. stores at Camp Colorado and at Fort Chadburn. He was commissioned colonel by President Davis, and raised a regiment of mounted men for the Confederate army. He assumed command of the department of Texas; was elected colonel of the regiment he had raised and was subsequently appointed brigadier-general. After the war he returned to Texas. He was superintendent of the state deaf and dumb asylum, 1876-79, and agent of the state land board, 1885-87.

Notes


Copied from the notes of Stanton Harris Nash, sent November 20, 1998:


"He (John Nash) had an estate probated on 20 April 1800 in Prince Edward Co., VA. He signed a will on 24 May 1800 in Prince Edward Co., VA. He died on 20 April 1801. John Nash Jr. (or II, following C.W. Nash's style) was a brother-in-law of Peter LeGrand. He was born probably after 1732, as he was not mentioned in the will of his uncle Thomas Nash while his brother Thomas and his sister, Mary were mentioned. He was, with his father, sworn in as a Justice of the Court of Prince Edward at the organization of the County in 1754, and in February of that year was appointed High Sheriff by the Governor (Prince Edward Order Book 1754). He was Captain of Colonial soldiers in 1757-58 and was reimbursed "for pay of his company from 8 June 1757 to 8 July following." (American Archives, 2:1023 and 3:616-7) From L.D. Eggleston's book page 335: "He was chairman of the County Committee of June 19, 1775, which passed resolutions avowing loyalty to the King and condemning Lord Dunmore for his action in removing the gunpoweder from Williamsburg; was chairman of the County Committee 26 Oct which approved the Resolutions and Ordinances of the Colonial Convention held in Richmond 17 Jul 1775 and was elected a member of the Committee of Safety for the County 20 Nov 1775. He was the owner of "Pembroke" and was left the "Templeton" Plantation and manor of his father in his will of 1776. He was one of the original trustees of Hampden-Sydney College in 1775. His will was made May 24 1800 and proved 26 Apr 1801"


From Eggleston, J.D., "The Huguenot Abraham Michaux and Descendants," Virginia Mag of History & Biography, Genealogies of VA Families vol. IV, Virginia Genealogies #1, FTM CD162, p. 335:


"John Nash, Jr., was a brother-in-law of Peter Le Grand. He was born probably after 1732, as he was not mentioned in the will of his uncle Thomas Nash, while his brother Thomas and sister Mary were mentioned. He was, with his father, sworn in as a Justice of the Court of Prince Edward at the organization of the County in 1754, and in February of that year was appointed High Sheriff by the Governor. He was Captain of colonial soldiers in 1757-58, and was reimbursed 'for pay of his company from 8 June 1757 to 8 July following.' He was made a member of the vestry in 1755, St. Patrick's Parish. On September 24, 1757, he married Elizabeth, daughter of Charles Fisher, dec'd., of Sussex County, Va. He was chairman of the County Committee of june 19, 1775, which passed resolutions avowing loyalty to the King, and condemning Lord Dunmore for his action in removing the gunpoweder from Williamsburg; was chairman of the County Committee October 26, 1775, which approved the Resolutions and Ordinances of the Colonial Convention held in Richmond July 17, 1775; and was elected a member of the Committee of Safety for the County November 20, 1775. He was the owner of 'Pembroke,' and was left the Templeton plantation and manor by his father, in his will 1776. He was one of the original trustees of Hampden-Sydney College in 1775. His will was made May 24, 1800, and proved April 20, 1801."
