If you are a Shatswell researcher, WELCOME.
Dear CVH, JT, LR, CS and others;If you are here to just collect names to add to your website, go someplace else.
Have worked long and hard to gather this data and my pet peeve is you out there on the Internet who do not help with anything, but are willing and eager to copy others hard work without even so much as a second thought. Somehow, you never learned that there is such a word as ASK!!!!
They apparently did not teach ASK in the schools you went to.
To LR, especially. You were first to copy my Kinfolks Newton County Times Newspaper articles and even said so......now you won't even answer my E-mails when I ask you questions. How come??

This Shatswell genealogy is taken from my research and my many family group sheets.
My information may not agree with your research
Additions and corrections welcome
Information mainly from census, marriage, cemetery, military records
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.
Information comes mainly from census, marriage, cemetery and
Military Records.
If you have any additions you would like me to add, please send me an
E-mail.
Any additional pictures you may have to add to this story are also welcome.

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 areas.
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 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 C. 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 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 Jr. grew up in Salem and learned the trade of blacksmith.
On 21 November 1835 he enlisted for three years in the 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, Arkansas

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. 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 descent.

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

Thomas C 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 family shown on my many family group sheets.
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
