Whittington Family - Rogers Family

The Goodspeed Biographical & Historical Memoirs of Western Arkansas
http://www.rootsweb.com/~armontgo/biosw.htm
Hiram A. WHITTINGTON has been an active agriculturist for many years, and as such as met
with a more than ordinary degree of success.  He was born in New Hampshire on February 17, 1832, to
Col.  Granville and Cordelia (Wilder) Whittington, both of whom were born in Massachusetts,
the later being a native of Boston, and the former of Cohasset.
They were married in Boston, in which city they made their home until 1838, when they came to
Hot Springs, Ark., at which place they made their home until 1840. They then moved to a farm
near Mount Ida, where there mother is still living, where the father died on April 27, 1887,
at the age of seventy-nine years.  He was educated in Boston, and learned the book-binder's trade,
at which he worked until coming to Arkansas, when he abandoned it after he had devoted
one winter to it in Little Rock.  From that time until his death he followed farming as a livelihood,
and being a man of splendid judgement and great energy he acquired a large amount of property.
He was judge of Hot Springs County, when Montgomery, Garland and Hot Springs were one,
holding the position one term, and after Montgomery County was organized he represented it
in the Lower House of the Legislature.  He was internal improvement commissioner for several years,
and held other important positions of trust.   For several years he was colonel in the State Militia,
and was known as a man of undoubted honor, kindness of heart, and very charitable.
He was a Knight Templar Mason, represented his lodge in the Grand Lodge of the State a number of years,
and although formerly a Whig, he became a stanch Democrat after the war.
He was a Southern sympathizer during this time, and was in favor of succession.
His father, William Whittington, was born in England and died in Massachusetts.
A son of his, Maj. Hiram A. Whittington, a brother of Granville Whittington,
recently died in Hot Springs, Ark., aged eighty-nine.
The mother of the subject of this sketch is residing on the old homestead in this county,
and although she has reached the advanced age of eighty years, she is quite hale.
She is a member of the Christian Church, and has been a mother of ten children, f
our of whom are now living: Hiram A., Granville N., Horatio B., Cordelia, wife of John S. Elder, of Mount Ida.
The other children died as follows: Junius George, at the age of forty-six years,
William A., when thirty-five years of age, and Josiah W., when about twenty.
The other children died young.
The immediate subject of this sketch spent his school days in this county,
and after making a home with his father until 1860,
he began doing for himself on the farm which he now lives, the principal part of which is covered with timber.
Splendid improvements have been made by Mr. Whittington, and the place is admirably adapted
and arranged for a stock farm, to which business he gives much attention.
The greater part of his 200-acre farm is under cultivation, and all the buildings are excellent.
In June, 1863, he joined Col. Ginstead's regiment, Twenty-fourth Arkansas Confederate Infantry,
holding the rank of first lieutenant of Company I, but in October, 1863, was discharged at Little Rock.
He afterwards became a member of Company K. Col. Newton's regiment, and served until the final surrender.
While he was in the army his farm had grown up to weeds, his house had been burned to the ground and
all property that could be laid hands on was taken away or destroyed.
Thus he had to commence once more at the foot of the ladder, but as has been stated above he has been remarkably successful.
In November, 1860, he married Miss Martha Ann Garrett, a daughter of Jesse B. Garrett of Mount Ida,
formerly of Scott County, Ark., the State of birth being Illinois.
Mrs. Whittington died in March, 1886, having become the mother of the following children:
Jefferson D., Ada E. (now married), Hiram A., Cordelia, and Clara J., living.
Mr. Whittington is a Democrat and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. page 495-496.

Lake Ouachita Dam - removed cemeteries
Montgomery Co AR - cemetery moved to Garland Co AR after 1917

http://www.rootsweb.com/~armontgo/relocatedcem.htm
Garland County cemeteries from the north side of the Lake Ouachita site were relocated
by the Army Corps of Engineers between 28 June 1952 and 25 July 1952 before the area was
inundated with water. Buckville Cemetery was the only cemetery in the area left untouched by
the flooding of the Ouachita River. Since the dam was talked about in the 1930s many started
burying elsewhere before all this took place. The various small cemeteries of Bradley,
Pittman (Williamson) & some of the Cedar Glades were moved to the hilltop above what is now the
Buckville Cemetery and Church
These graves are also known as the NEW CEDAR GLADES CEMETERY.
Most of those from Cedar Glades went to the small Mount Valley Cemetery,
originally Fowler Cem., near Hot Springs. It grew with the additions of the grave removals
from the Buckville area, and many families of those descendants bury there today.
All were removed a coffee can of dirt at a time.
Only recent graves were actually moved by the Corp of Engineers.
We found also that many markers were never actually moved either.
