20> Vansickle and Friday in Arkansas. Looking for any information on Vansickle and Friday in South Arkansas around Ouachita, Columbia County in the late 1800's and early 1900's, particularly John Chunning and (married) Alice Lee Friday, ancestors and decendents. Also, Benjamin Vansickle and (married Rissa Proctor) and Berryman Friday. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

There was a story that was passed down about a family member that was in the war.  It had to be the war between the states, but I am not sure of it. I do not know if it was a Friday or a Vansickle.  I am thinking that is was a Friday and wanted to know if you heard or know about the story and can put any names, ect. with it.  My father told it to me when I was a very young girl.  He died when I was 10 years old and my memory is very vague about the story.  I am hoping that you can fill in the gaps. It was told that one of my ancestors was assigned to keep watch over the livestock during the war.  The place was on a small island that had a fence all the way around it.  He had to make sure that the animals were not taken by the opposing troops.  (It must have been pretty close to enemy lines.)  He kept watch over the animals for 9 months, never lit a fire (for fear the enemy would see the fire or the smoke). and only fired one shot.  Women would sneak food and other necessities into him at night.  On the night that he fired one shot:  He saw something climbing up the bank and could not tell what it was, but it was going after the livestock.  He fired one shot and it went down.  For fear that it was an enemy solider, he did not check that night to see what he had shot.  Next morning, he checked.  It was a bear. Does this story ring a bell with you?  Can you fill in the names, places, ect.? (Vansickle, Susan 2003)
