Elizabeth Peoples Shatswell and grandson David Shatswell, ca 1905

Shatswell family is large. It is like working a giant jig-saw puzzle.
Hopefully I have put the pieces together correctly.

Want to thank Don and Berta Oliver for sharing this picture with us.
Brenda Torix also sent me a copy of the same picture and I want to thank her too.
And thanks to Chief Harris and others for their help and for the
photos and pictures they were willing to share with us.

I want to thank everyone who has helped with this genealogy.
Started collecting Shatswell genealogy because many of the Shatswell families
married into my Flood\Flud family members and their related families.

Have Thomas C Shatswell's Military Record from his service in the
Sabine Indian War of 1835.Thomas served in Co. F, First U S Dragoons
under General Arbuckle.
Thomas enlisted on 21 November 1835 in Boston, Massachusetts.
He was a farrier (blacksmith )in Troop F,First Regiment of Dragoons,
Indian War
Certificate 7358 (3967).
Thomas served in the Ft. Gibson, Oklahoma area and Nagodoches, Texas
My good friend Fran Flood Shatswell Emmerich sent the Military Record
to me.

Kent Cusack did a really good write up about Thomas Shatswell’s
Military Record which I would like to mention here.
Kent Cusack states:
Thomas Shatswell Sr. came to Massachusetts from Germany and changed
his name from Crownshield to Shatswell.
Hannah Rowell was the daughter of Thomas and Hannah (Beckett) Rowell.
Thomas Crownshield Shatswell had a sister
named Elizabeth who was born about 1807 in Salem and died on
2 June 1842.

Thomas Shatswell Jr. was son of Thomas Shatswell,born 1782 in Salem,
Essex County, Massachusetts who died before 1810 at Salem.
Thomas Shatswell Jr.’s mother was HANNAH ROWELL, born 1785 in
Hopkinton, New Hampshire
Thomas Shatswell and HANNAH ROWELL were married 28 July 1805 in
Massachusetts,probably Salem, Essex County.
She died about 1816 at Salem, Massachusetts.
There are Shatswell Probate Records in Essex County, Massachusetts,
1635-1681 which I did not investigate.

Thomas Crownshield Shatswell Jr. grew up in Salem and learned the
trade of blacksmith.
On 21 November 1835 he enlisted for three years in United States
Regular Army at Boston, Massachusetts.
The company rolls described him as 27 years old,5 feet,8-l/2 Inches
tall, with fair complexion, grey eyes and black hair.
On 13 January 1836, Thomas Shatswell was assigned as a farrier
(blacksmith) to Troop F, 1st Regiment, United States Dragoons
(Cavalry), commanded by General Arbuncle stationed at Fort Gibson,
Arkansas on the frontier of the United States and Mexico.

In April 1836,the United States feared there would be an uprising of
Indians along the Southwestern frontier. Regular troops amounting to
1600 were stationed along the Mexican frontier during that time to
prevent incursions of Indians, and at the same time keep peace
among the Indian tribes themselves, which inhabited the adjoining
country. The U.S. Army was to fulfill the treaty stipulations
between Mexico and the United States in reference to the Indians
on the Western frontier, whether belonging to the U.S. or Mexico,
and especially to maintain a strict neutrality in regard to the
contending parties in Texas.
In May 1836, a squadron of dragoons including F Troop, along with six
companies from the 7th Infantry, moved to Fort Towson, Arkansas on
the Red River, and Camp Benton was established on the left bank of
the Sabine River.
Thomas Shatswell served at Camp Benton until August 1836 and then
moved to Camp Nacogdoches, Texas where he stayed until December 1836.
While the country covered by these movements of troops was greatly
disturbed and the inhabitants very much frightened on account of
expected Indian incursions, no actual fighting took place.
Thomas returned to Fort Gibson in December 1836 and remained there
until his discharge from the United States Army on 21 November 1838
upon completion of his three year service obligation
After his discharge from the Army, Thomas settled in Johnson County,

Elizabeth "Betsy"Peoples was born in Henry County, Tennessee
(per pension record 1 October 1822...per her tombstone 1 August 1833,
while census records give years as 1824 and 1829).
Her father was SMITH PEOPLES and her mother was SARAH (maiden
name unknown). I believe her mother, Sarah, was Choctaw Indian.
Read further and you will see why I believe this.

Kent Cusack in his article states that Smith Peoples was the son of
Wyatt and Rhuhammer (Banner)Peoples. Ruhammer Banner was a Chickasaw
Indian. >br> Family legend has it that Elizabeth was full-blooded Cherokee Indian
while other sources say she was Choctaw. Even though her tribe is
uncertain it is obvious from her photograph that she was of Indian

Thomas Crownshield Shatswell and Elizabeth "Betsy" Peoples were
married on 1 October 1847 at Clarksville,Johnson County, Arkansas by
Rev. Thomas Willis.

Thomas Crownshield Shatswell was murdered not far from his home on
12 September 1872 (tombstone reads 10 January 1871).
He and his brother-in-law were riding to the Grist Mill at Deer,
Arkansas to have three bags of corn ground into cornmeal ,
when they were apparently robbed and murdered. Their bodies were
found by the side of the road. They were buried near the spot where
they were found. The tombstone marking his grave is located about a
half mile off of Parker Ridge Road No. 1202,
in Section 21 or 22 of Township 13 North, Range 21 West in Newton County
The tombstone is engraved with "Gone but not forgotten".

Elizabeth "Betsy" Peoples Shatswell died on 5 January 1911 at the age
of 88
and was buried at Copper Bluff Cemetery on Big Creek in Newton County
Arkansas. She lived her last years with her daughter Louisa and
son-in-law Nathaniel Harvey Flud
Her tombstone reads "No lost blest thou goeth but gone before, where
we shall Meet to part no more".

This is the Shatswell families as I know them
Also have many newspaper clippings showing marriages, anniversaries,
deaths, and births and will share some of them in this story.

Some family members spell their last names as SHATT.
Have also seen the name spelled CHATWELL.
Others spell their last name SHATWELL.

Know that I am missing lots of family information. Hopefully, family
members will send me more information and I can complete this
Shatswell family history

Friends and family of the 22-year-old college senior describe her
as a polite, quiet, small-town girl with a beautiful voice.
"She never did do anything out of line," said Carl Shatswell,
Underwood's grandfather. "You couldn't ask for any better youngster growing up."
And while Shatswell described Underwood as quiet and shy, that
description changed when it came to her singing.
"I figured she'd make something of it, because she's sung all of her
life," he said.
"She went to Kansas one time and was singing on the bus.
Her grandmother and me, we tried to get her to hush up, but the rest
of the folks on there,they wanted her to keep singing.

Thank you Chief Harris for sharing the photo with us
The above photo was probably taken as Louisa Catherine Shatswell was
looking out a window or screen door. Photo was probably taken with
one of the old "box cameras" and you had to get by the source of
light in order for the picture to turn out
