A small figure, a big man, from Fredericksburg.com
http://www.fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/2004/102004/10162004/15365 04


My great-grandfather Province McCormick had an interesting life in the Civil War and as an inspector for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. By Paul Sullivan. A small figure, a big man


Date published: 10/16/2004


I NEVER KNEW Province McCormick, but I wish I had.


McCormick was my great-grandfather, and, although there is much I do not know about him, I know enough to say he was an extraordinary man.


Pint-sized, feisty, bright and determined, he was only 14 when the Civil War broke out, but he was an expert horseman and, by the age of 16, had become a courier for Confederate forces.


When I think of my great-grandfather, I think of John S. Mosby, the famed Confederate raider/guerrilla fighter. Not that I know of any connection between them. Although they covered much of the same ground in Northern Virginia and the northern Shenandoah Valley, McCormick was too young for Mosby's forces although he did fight, later in the conflict. From what I read of Mosby, and what I know of McCormick, they were much alike.


As a courier, McCormick often carried dispatches between commanders in Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg and nearby counties south of the Rappahannock River.


McCormick, from accounts that I have read and from my mother's stories about him, was just 5 feet 4 inches tall, but made up for his size with sharp wits and determination. When he was old enough, he joined Company D of the 6th Virginia Cavalry, a Clarke County unit. Still a young man, he took part in fighting at Cedar Creek, Petersburg, Winchester and Yellow Creek, among others, and fought in a skirmish on the final day of the war. And, while it is said that he received only minor war wounds, he told the story of a horse once being shot out from under him.


I thought about these things last week as a nephew, Charlie Smith, gave several family members a look at the model 1858 Remington, .44-caliber service revolver my great-grandfather had carried into combat. If only a firearm could talk, what stories could that one tell. Although Smith has not fired this cap-and-ball weapon, it appears in excellent condition.


But I had not driven to Charlottesville last Wednesday to look at firearms. Instead, some of the family met at a warehouse there to examine some two dozen varied artifacts acquired by McCormick many years after the Civil War, when he traveled the American West.


We do not know how he came to receive an appointment from President Grover Cleveland as an inspector for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, charged with overseeing the operation and functions of several dozen of the reservations to which American Indians had been consigned.


In 1893, McCormick, still an avid rider, traveled widely by horse and steamboat through the upper Plains states, the Northwest and California. My sister, Ann Haskell, acquired copies of McCormick's official reports and the itineraries for his four major trips west. He spent most of that time in California, she told me, visiting tribes as far south as San Diego and as far north as Eureka, in the gold-mining country of the Sierra Nevada.


My trip to Charlottesville brought some surprises. I had long known of my great-grandfather's travels westward on behalf of Indians. But among the artifacts he had gathered were two woven Navajo jugs and a serving tray made of reeds. There was also an elaborate papoose from the Kiowa, an Oklahoma tribe.


As a boy, my mother told me that Grandpa McCormick smoked the peace pipe with many Indian tribes.


On a table in that warehouse lay two beautiful long, carved, polished and decorated smoking pipes made of stone, one black, the other a dark red. The bowl of the black one was charred with the remnants of a residue. Suddenly, I could see little Province McCormick, cross-legged, speaking and smoking with elders of a Dakota tribe, perhaps the Lakota Sioux.


What must it have been like, I wondered, covering those vast distances in the West in the days before cars and airplanes, in all sorts of weather, over every manner of path, alone for long periods. He did this work for five years. During that time, he no doubt encountered every imaginable sort of person and dealt with situations I cannot conceive. Born in 1847, he would not have been a young man by this time.


This man, this forebear of mine, must have been one skilled and daring adventurer, a capable survivor! How I wish he had penned a book about these years.


In any event, he resigned abruptly from the Indian Service in 1897. There is some interesting speculation as to the reason, but my sister said the primary reason was nonpayment of fees for his services--as much as two years in arrears!


On the personal side, we know that he was an avid reader, subscribing to four daily newspapers, frequently meeting the train in his hometown of Berryville to get his papers. (I often wondered if there was a "news junkie" gene: Now I know where I got it from.)


What I do know is that Province McCormick was a most interesting individual. I know, too, that many questions remain about his life. Were the years following the Civil War and before his days as an Indian inspector spent entirely in farming in his beloved Clarke County? Maybe. But even that is not certain. He is known to have been a student at the University of Virginia, but studying what, and for how long, we don't know. And we know that he married Elizabeth Taylor and that they had two children.


Province McCormick kept good company. Among his many and diverse friends were the Byrd family, also residents of Clarke County, and Chief Joseph, famed leader of the embattled Nez Perce tribe.



Delving into the lives of one's ancestors is addictive. The more you find out, the more you want to know.
