Notes


In 1914 Martha lived in Fordoche, LA and penned a letter to a relative, Mrs. Ruth Reiley Heidelberg, No. 1704 Prytannia St. NO, LA. The original was in the possession of Mrs. Edith Reiley Bourgeois, Baton Rouge, LA in 1967.


" Fordoche, Louisiana 2/16/1914
Dear Ruth,
Words fail to express my appreciation of your very kind letter which was the greatest and pleasantest surprise I have had for a long, long time. Thought I was entirely forgotten by all in dear old East Feliciana except your cousin Iowa's family. Some of them write me occasionally. Would have replied immediately but being almost 80 years of age, my eyes are weak, so am forced to have light days to write and my house as you remember is surrounded by very large trees, firs, Live Oaks in the front which keeps every place dark. Yes, indeed remember your visit with your mother,....................
Page -3-
best and spared me for some purpose unknown to me, yet so far as is in the power of my frail nature, try to live a Christian life and prove my thanks and appreciation of all the kindness bestowed on me by my Heavenly father. Since your uncle left me 12 years ago to fight life's hard battles alone, I live in the old house. Have not left it a dozen times in that number of years. Your cousin Eustatia stays with me. Mr. Scarbrough passed away almost two years ago. She lived very near me. Would not stay alone, both her children being married.
Felix Smith, your uncles nephew, is with me. Is quite an old man, does not work, makes the garden his greatest pleasure and does things around the yard. I rent the plantation but owing to poor crops during the past two years, made poor collections which forces me
Page -4-
to be very economical, the cost of living is so high. Glad your Mother is in good health. Last time I saw her, did not think she looked well. Was so muchly changed, barely recognized her. Tell her Samie never forgets her, she being his favorite cousin. He looks old, is always at hard work on his farm on Red River in Little River County, Arkansas. Your Uncle Butler is a great sufferer, has Bladder troubles, been operated on twice but was not benefited much, only for a short time. Seldom leaves home. Your Aunt Ernestine attends to all the business. He rents all his plantation except his dwelling, garden, lot and pastures. His daughter, Mrs. Lewis lives with them, has one little girl, lost their eldest child, a boy named Orlando for your Grandfather. Sydney is in Houston, Tex., has four children, is doing very well.
Page -5-
Malcolm lives in Gouldsboro, has five children, does not get along very well, is a poor manager his father says. Your father has some near relatives living at Fordoche. Mrs. Simmonds, her two sons, and only daughter, Minnie, - they are good friends of mine. Miss Minnie visits me and I think a great deal of her. They own a nice home and about 50 acres of land also a store. Mr. Harry Simmonds is Post Master and his sister is assistant. She is in the store most of the time. Mr. Harry attends to the farm and Cattle. They raise Cane, Corn, and Potatoes, appear to be doing well. Mr. Riley Simmonds is a lumber scaler, is a widower, has two children, boy and girl, both almost grown. The former is a student at the L.S.U. and is a very bright boy, stands high in his studies, will graduate as a Sugar Chemist. Mattie, my youngest,
Page -6-
Daughter, now Mrs. Watson, lives in Baton Rouge. Eldest daughter lived with me up to two years ago. She went to work for herself, surely hated to give her up but had sent her to the Tyler Commercial, Tex., where she graduated in Stenography, is now in the Office of Rosenfield's Dry Goods Co., Baton Rouge. Am sure she would be glad to meet you, having seen so few of her relatives. Alex., my youngest son, lives in Borge, La., has four children, two grown sons both in the employ of the T.P.R.R., doing well. He is also a R.R. man, they give him light jobs, being a constant sufferer from injuries received in a wreck 23 years ago, is now in the Hospital at Manshack. Appoline lives on Bayou Poydras, 25 miles from me, has 6 children, all grown and married except the eldest son and baby girl who is 19 years old. Must close my eyes, am worn out. Will be glad to give you all the information I know of the family. Think your right in wanting to know it. With much love & hoping to see you before long again. Your true old Aunt Martha.
Page -7-
Your paternal great grandfather and Mother, John McKneely and Jane Cockfield McKneely were reared in South Carolina, were of Scotch-Irish descent. They
moved from there in 1805 with several near relatives, also the Scott and Winter families. They all brought their slaves, made the trip in wagons & on horseback, landed in La. in 1806, located in East Feliciana Parish where most of them lived and died. They were amongst the first settlers, they had ten children, 8 lived to be grown. William, the eldest, was Sheriff of East Feliciana, died young with Yellow fever before his term of office expired, was a Royal Arch Mason.
2. T. Jefferson passed away young.
3. John F.
4. Henry, also died young of Yellow Fever.
5th. Louisa, the only daughter. She married three times. 1st husband, Jack Horton, 2nd. John Smith. They had two sons: Henry & Felix, 3rd. J.T. Worsham. They had one son, Alex. Trisvan, he died young.
6th Orlando Winfield. 8th Alexander Trisvan. (hand written) 5th - Samuel Washington. - below.
Page -8-
Your great Grandmother had 3 nephews to come to Louisiana. Eb, William, & Duncan Cockfield. The two latter settled in Red River Parish, La. They married nice
ladies, accumulated property. Their children are yet living up there but like many others, lost most of their property by war and overflows from the Red River.


Your Maternal great grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. George Dixon, were South Carolinians and were early settlers of East Feliciana. Your great grandmother was Miss Sanders a near relative of the Ex Governor. Several members of the family are yet living in St. Mary Parish, La. Their children and grandchildren moved to different states, many in Tex., Miss., Arkansas. Their son, James Dixon, located in Rapides Parish, La. Some of his children and grandchildren are yet up there. Jured Y. Dixon went to California years ago when very young, he never returned. Often wrote to your grandmother. He married out there.
Page -9-
Samuel Washington, 5th son of John & Jane Cockfield McKneely, was the only one of the old family who left La. he lived in Arkansas a number of years, returned to La. in 1860, was a member of the ____sion Convention at Baton Rouge. He was a Texas Vetran and Royal Arch Mason. He married three times, his first wife was Theresa Dickson of East Feliciana, his second was Luvenia Dickson, a
sister-in-law. his 3rd was Mattie Whitaker of Nacidoches, Tex. She is yet living in Texarkana, Ark., where Col. S. W. McKneely lived when he entered into rest. He located there when he left La. the last time in 1862.


I have given you all the information I can now remember. My memory has failed me in many ways. Your grandmother, Mary Eleanor Dixon McKneely was a very pretty, fine looking, lovable woman. Your Mother (the rest is torn off). "
