Shelby County, KY: DAVID ALVIS (deceased), a pioneer of Washington County, was born in about the year 1788 in the Old Dominion, which was also the native State of his parents, Jesse and Mary (Mallory) Alvis. Jesse Alvis was an old Revolutionary war soldier, and in about 1806 moved to Shelby County, Kentucky, where David Alvis, in 1812, married Ellen McKingley, and from whence he emigrated with his family, in February, 1816, to what is now Washington County, Ind., settling near Pekin on the South Fork of Blue River. In after years David returned to Kentucky and brought with him on his return his aged parents, who ever afterwards made Indiana their home.


The Alvis family saw much of the hardships and inconveniences of pioneer life, and in some way have been identified with the prosperity of the county from its organization to the present. Mrs. Ellen Alvis died in 1863, followed by her husband in 1868, both members of long standing in the regular Baptist Church, and both passing away on the old farm they first entered from the Government in 1816. Perhaps the most widely known of their children is W. M. Alvis, who was born in Pierce Township, September 6, 1823, and has always made Washington County his home. Much of his life has been passed in teaching school, and for eight years he has served as Treasurer of the county, being elected to that office four different times. Miss C. D. Lapping became his wife in 1850, and J. Albert and J. D. were their children, the latter bieng the only survivor. The mother dying in 1856, Mr. Alvis married Miss A. M. Motsinger in 1858, and two children, A. C. and Charlie M., have been born to them.

Notes


Isaac Shelby


Isaac Shelby (December 11, 1750-July 18, 1826) was an officer in the American Revolutionary War and the first Governor of Kentucky, serving from 1792 to 1796 and from 1812 to 1816.


Born in Frederick County, Maryland near Hagerstown, he was the son of Eaan and Letitia (Cox) Shelby. The family moved to western Virginia in 1772 and ran a trading post. He was a lieutenant in Lord Dunmore's War in 1774. The next year he surveyed land in Kentucky and settled there in 1776. Governor Patrick Henry appointed him to secure provisions for the army on the frontier the next year. He was elected to the Virginia legislature in 1780.


Shelby led the Americans to victory at the Battle of Cowpens in 1781. He settled in North Carolina and was elected twice to its legislature. In 1783, he returned to Kentucky where he married Susannah Hart. He was named a trustee of what became Transylvania University.


When Kentucky became a state, he was elected its first governor. One of his chief concerns was securing Federal aid to defend the frontier. He also worked for free navigation on the Mississippi River. He retired to his farm in Lincoln County, Kentucky. In 1812, he once more ran for governor and was victorious. Upon leaving office in 1816, President James Monroe offered him the post of Secretary of War but he declined. He died at his home in Lincoln County.


Shelby County, Iowa, Shelby County, Tennessee, Shelby County, Kentucky, Shelby County, Ohio, and Shelby County, Texas are named for him.

THE JACKSON PURCHASE


The Jackson Purchase was a tremendous effort between agents of the United
States and the Chickasaw Indian Nation. Isaac Shelby, now an elderly man
who had fought in the Revolutionary War and had served on two occasions as
Governor of the State of Kentucky was involved. General Andrew Jackson who
had been recognized as the hero of the Battle of New Orleans and later
served as President of the United States was there. The proud Chickasaw
nation was well represented by their chiefs, head men and mighty warriors.
Levi and George Colbert, Chinubby (the Boy King), and Tishomingo were among
those present for this historical event wherein the United States was set
to purchase a large area of land later to be known as the Jackson Purchase
area. A treaty was signed in northwestern Mississippi on October 19, 1818
and later ratified by the U. S. Senate and confirmed by President James
Monroe on January 7, 1819.


The Chickasaw Indian Nation, by this treaty, relinquished all of their
lands east of the Mississippi River and north of the Mississippi state
line. In return for the land they were to receive $300,000 at the rate of
$20,000 annually for fifteen years. This treaty enlarged Tennessee and
Kentucky by about 2,000 and 6,000 square miles respectively. The land in
Kentucky became known as the Jackson Purchase or the Purchase District;
lands in Tennessee were called West Tennessee.


The treaty reads:


"To settle all territorial controversies, and to remove all grounds of
complaint or dissatisfaction that might arise to interrupt the peace and
harmony which have so long and so happily existed between the United
States, America and the Chickasaw Indians, James Monroe, President of the
United States, Nation, by their chiefs, head men, and warriors, in full
council assembled, of the other part, have agreed on the following articles
which, when ratified by the President and Senate of the United States of
America, shall form a treaty binding on all parties."


ARTICLE 1: Peace and friendship are hereby firmly established and made
perpetual between the United States of America and the Chickasaw Nation of
Indians.


ARTICLE 2: To obtain the object of the foregoing article, the Chickasaw
Nation of Indians cede to the United States of America (with exception of
such reservation as shall be hereinafter mentioned) all claim or title
which the said nation has to the land lying north of the south boundary of
the States of Tennessee, which is bounded on the south by the 35th degree
of north latitude, and which lands, hereby ceded, lie within the following
boundaries, viz: Beginning on the Tennessee River, about thirty-five miles,
by water, below Col. George Colbert's Ferry, where the 35th degree of north
latitude strikes the same; thence due west, with said degree of north
latitude, to where it cuts the Mississippi River at or near the Chickasaw
Bluffs; thence up the Mississippi River to the mouth of the Ohio River;
thence up the Ohio River to the mouth of the Tennessee River; thence up the
Tennessee River to the place of the beginning.


ARTICLE 3: In consideration of relinquishment of claim and cession of lands
in the preceding article and to perpetuate the happiness of the Chickasaw
Nation of Indians, the Commissioners of the United States, before named,
agree to allow the said Nation the sum of twenty thousand dollars per
annum, for fifteen successive years, to be paid annually; and as a further
consideration for the objects aforesaid, and at the request of the Chiefs
of the said Nation, the Commissioners agree to pay Capt. John Gordon of
Tennessee, the sum of one thousand and one hundred and fifteen dollars, it
being a debt due by General William Colbert of said Nation, to the
aforesaid Gordon; and the further sum of two thousand dollars, due by said
Nation of Indians, to Capt.. David Smith, now of Kentucky, for the sum by
him expended, in supplying himself and forty-five soldiers from Tennessee,
in the year 1795, when assisting them (at their request and invitation) in
defending their towns against invasion of the Creek Indians; both which
sums (on the application of the said nation) are to be paid within sixty
days after the ratification of this treaty, to the aforesaid Gordon and
Smith.


ARTICLE 4: The Commissioners further agree on the further and particular
application of the chiefs, and for the benefit for the poor and warriors of
the said Nation, that a tract, of land, containing four miles square, to
include a salt lick, or springs, on or near the River Sandy, a branch of
the Tennessee River, and within the land hereby ceded, be reserved, and to
be laid off in a square of oblong, so as to include the best timber, at the
option of their beloved chief, Levi Colbert, and Major James Brown, or
either of them; who are hereby made agents and trustees for the Nation, to
lease the said salt lick, or springs, on the following express conditions,
viz: For the benefit of this reservation, as before recited, the trustees
or agents are bound to reasonable quantity of salt to be paid annually to
the said Nation, for the use thereof, and that, from and after two years
after the ratification of this treaty, no salt, made at the works to be
erected on this reservation, shall be sold within the limits of the same
for a higher price than one dollar per bushel of fifty pounds weight; on
the failure of which the lease shall be forfeited, and the reservation
revert to the United States.


ARTICLE 5: The Commissioners agree that there shall be paid to Oppassantuby
a principal chief of the Chickasaw Nation, within sixty days after the
ratification of this treaty, the sum of five hundred dollars as a full
compensation for the reservation of two miles square, on the north side of
the Tennessee River secured to him and his heirs by the treat held with the
said Chickasaw Nation on the 29th day of September, 1816; and the further
sum of twenty five dollars to John Lewis, a half breed, for a saddle lost
while in the service of the United States and to show the regard of the
President of the United States has for the said Chickasaw Nation at the
request of the chiefs of the said Chickasaw Nation, the Commissioners agree
that the sum of one thousand eighty nine dollars shall be paid to Maj.
James Colbert, interpreter, within the period stated within the first part
of this article, it being the amount of the sum of money taken from his
pocket in the month of June, 1816, at the theater in Baltimore. And the
said Commissioners as a further regard for said Nation, do agree that the
reservation made to George Colbert, and Levi Colbert in the treaty held at
the Council House of said Nation of the twenty-sixth day of September 1816,
the first to Col. George Colbert on the north side of the Tennessee River,
and those to Maj. Levi Colbert, on the east side of the Tombigbee River,
shall inure to the sole use of said George Colbert and Maj. Levi Colbert,
their heirs and assigns, forever, with their butts and bounds, as defined
by said treaty, and agreeable to the marks and boundaries as laid off and
marked by the surveyor of the United States where that is the case; and
where the reservations have not been laid off and marked by the surveyor of
the United States the same shall be so done as soon after the ratification
as practicable on the application of their legally appointed agent under
them, and agreeably to the definition in the before recited treaty. This
agreement is made on the following express condition: That the said land
and those living on it shall be subject to the laws of the United States,
and all legal taxation that may be imposed on the land or citizens of the
United States inhabiting the territory where the said land is situated. The
Commissioners further agree that the reservation secured to John Mc Cleish,
on the north side of Tennessee River, by the before recited treaty, in
consequence of his having been raised in the State of Tennessee and
marrying a white woman, shall inure to the sole use of the said John Mc
Cleish, his heirs and assigns, forever, on the same conditions attached to
the lands of Col. George Colbert and Maj. Levi Colbert in this article.


ARTICLE 6: The two contracting parties covenant and agree that the line of
the south boundary of the State of Tennessee, as described in the second
Article of this treat, shall be ascertained and marked by commissioners
appointed by the President of the United States; that the marks shall be
bold, the trees to be blazed and both sides of the line, and the fore and
aft trees shall be marked U.S.; and that the Commissioners shall be
attended by two persons to be designated by the Chickasaw Nation, and the
said Nation shall have due and reasonable notice when said operation is to
be commenced. It is further agreed by the commissioners that all
improvements actually made by individuals of Chickasaw Nation, which shall
be found within the lands ceded by this treaty, that a fair and reasonable
compensation shall be paid thereof to the respective individuals having
made or owned the same.


ARTICLE 7: In consideration of the friendly and conciliatory disposition
evinced during the negotiating of this treaty by the Chickasaw chiefs and
warriors but more particularly as a manifestation of the friendship and
liberality of the President of the United States, the Commissioners agree
to give, on the ratification of this treat, to Chinnubby, King of the

Document No. 452. (Signed by) Isaac Shelby, Andrew Jackson, and the
Aforesaid Chiefs and Others.


In Kentucky, the purchase became part of the state as an extension of
Christian County with Old Wadesboro named as its capital. The land was then
divided into eight counties: Hickman in 1821 with Columbus, later Columbia
as the county seat; Calloway in 1822 (Wadesboro, later Murray), Graves in
1823 (Mayfield), McCracken in 1824 (Wilmington, later Paducah), Marshall in
1842 (Benton), Ballard in 1842 (Blandville, later WIckliffe), Fulton in
1845 (Hickman) and Carlisle in 1886 (Bardwell).


This land forms a peninsula that goes northward from Tennessee and is
bounded by the Tennessee, Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to the east, north
and west. Large earthquakes in 1811-12 changed the landscape of the area in
the west with Reelfoot Lake being formed. Earliest residents of the area
other than the Indians, included Louis Jolliett and Jacques Marquette in
1673 and Ren Robert LaSalle in 1682. Fort Jefferson was established in
1780. During the Civil War, this was known as Confederate area. Now it is
the location of Murray State University, Paducah Community College,
Mid-Continent Baptist College, an area of agriculture, industries, rich
uranium fields, railroads and river industries. Kenlake and Kentucky Dam
Village State Resort Parks are located here and the Jackson Purchase area
has become a high tourism area.
