Would suggest checking with either the Odessa American newspaper or the Abilene Reporter News, (or the libraries), for an obit. That, as you know, will give you survivors.

1910 census, Fisher Co. TX
Harris, Kennon, WM, 19, AR-AR-AR, for occupation it looks like "keeper of" and then business says "restaurant"

Now this is very interesting to me. Not necessarily because of the restaurant thing, which is kinda interesting (check the Handbook of Texas Online for a history of Fisher County. Suggest you see if there was anything going on at the time, like an oil boom, that would bring a 19 year old out to make his fortune as a restauranteur. You can google for Handbook of Texas Online). What is interesting is that Fisher Co. is VERY near Mitchell Co. And not too far (150 miles, maybe) from Ector Co. That's a funny coincidence.

I hope this helps you get started. I promised you a list of my favorite sites (that I used for a lot of this)
US GenWeb --sites for all states and all counties in all states. Free. Quality varies from county to county (volunteer driven) but always worth a look! www.usgenweb.com

Cyndi's List of Genealogical Sites on the Internet. Amazing index...like a card catalog of the internet

Civil War in Clark County AR

The Civil War in Clark County, Arkansas

Salt Works
East of the Ouachita River bridge on Highway 7 at Saline Bayou
The salt works site was investigated during the war by Confederate Captain J.M. King and built and operated by Confederate officer M.S. Carpenter, an Arkadelphia resident.

Wells were sunk to a depth of 40-50 feet. Several 200 gallon iron kettles continually boiled salt water. Large metal pans were used to dry out the salt. The salt was shipped by steamboat on the Ouachita River, or by wagon. Hundreds of tons of salt were manufactured during the years of operation. A bushel of salt sold for about ten dollars when it was available at the works.

The facility discontinuted operations near the close of the war due to wartime conditions. It reopened for a time after the war, but was then abandoned.

The site is listed in the National Register of History Places.

Powder Works (Munitions Factory)
Fifteenth Street and Mill Creek Drive Arkadelphia
The Civil War powder works was begun by Major General Thomas C. Hindman in the early summer of 1862. It was used only a short time, then disassembled and moved to Marshall, Texas, in 1863. In May of that same year, an explosion occurred, killing one person. It blew up all the machinery and the building, but by June 13, 1863, tbe factory was back in operation.

Arsenal (Munitions Factory or Ordnance Works)
526 Main, Arkadelphia (present site of Horizon Bank)
Arkadelphia's main contribution to the war effort was as a Confederate supply depot. It was one of the depots set up by Major General Thomas C. Hindman, Confederate commander of the Trans-Mississippi District, who was responsible for raising an army and equipping it. Medical chemicals, munitions, and salt manufacturing were established in Arkadelphia.

The chemical laboratory produced needed medicines and products, such as calomel, castor oil, spirits of nitre, and tinctures of iron. The chemicals necessary for production of these products, such as cultivated plants, weeds, and herbs, were purchased from citizens through newspaper advertisements.

The ordnance works was also owned by the Confederacy, and directed by Captain G.S. Polleys. Most of the machinery was homemade, and manufactured light artillery, pistols, and rifles. The cannon on the grounds of the Clark County Library may have been made at the arsenal.

A munitions works was established to supplement the main works in Camden. Gun carriages, powder, shot and shell, bullets, cartridge boxes, wagons, and caissons were produced.

There was a tanning yard in the city, and leather products were produced at the arsenal. Harnesses, knapsacks, saddles, bridles, and shoes were made for the army.

Harris Flanagin Law Office
320 Clay, Arkadelphia
Completed prior to the Civil War, this stuccoed brick building has sewed as an office for many Clark County attorneys. Early Arkadelphia bricklayer J. H. O'Baugh built the structure for James Witherspoon. In addition to Harris Flanagin, Confederate governor of Arkansas, other owners of note have been Duncan Flanagin, J.H. Crawford and Ernest Still. The law offices of B. W. Sanders and Randy L. Hill currently occupy the building.

The structure is listed in thc National Register of Historic Places.

Harris Flanagin Grave
Rose Hill Cemetery, Main Street, Arkadelphia
Harris Flanagin served as a Confederate officer in the First Arkansas Infantry, Co. E.

His name was entered as a nominee for governor of Arkansas, and although he was away in military service, he won the election. Flanagin was recalled from active duty and served as Governor for the duration of the war.

He died in 874 while erving as a delegate to the Arkansas Constitutional Convention.

United Daughters of the Confederacy Civil War Monument
Grounds of the Clark Couray Court House, Arkadelphia
Constructed with funds collected by members of the Harris Flanagin Chapter, UDC, to commemorate the heroic efforts of the soldiers and citizens of Clark County, the monument was unveiled and was dedicated on May 27, 1911. A large crowd attended the festivities, including many former Confederate soldiers.

The monument was destroyed in thc March 1997 tornado and is to be replaced. It is 1isted in the National Register of Historic Places.

Military Road
Crosses Clark County
The Military Road began as an Indian trail, and served as an early transportation artery across Arkansas into Texas and Mexico. It was used extensively during the Civil War. The road crosses Clarlc County from the northeast to southwest.

Bullock's Plantadon
After the battle of Jenkins' Ferry, General Joseph O. Shelby, General John S. Marmaduke, and Colonel Colton Greene established their headquarters in various outbuildings on the plantation of Colonel Charles Bullock. Here they probably planned their Missouri campaign.

The soldiers camped at the plantation two weeks or more, and when they left, the grounds were scraped clean and the trash burned.

Skirmish at Bozeman's House
Highways 26 and 51, about four miles from Arkadelphia on the old Military Road
On April 1, 1864, Confederate General Joseph O. Shelby caught up with and attacked the rear guard of Union General Frederick Steele's army.

Union General Samuel A. Rice, in charge of the supply, pontoon, and brigade trains, rushed to support the troops under attack. After eight long and bloody hours of savage fighting, the opponents being a brigade against a division, darkness fell and the battle ended.

Nearly 400 prisoners were taken. There were many dead and wounded. "Rice, shot twice, hatless and swordless, finally reached the main army, swearing he fought nothing but devils who rode horses upon his bayonets, and shot his infantry in square with revolvers."

Skirmish at Spoonrille (Hollywood)
Highway 26, about two miles south of Hollywood on Terre Noire and Gentry Creeks
On April 2, 1864, General Joseph Shelby attacked the Union Army from the rear and Generals Marmaduke and William L. Cabell came from Antoine, at Gentry Creek, and attacked the front. Marmaduke and Cabell withdrew to Antoine to set up on Wolf Creek to attack the Union forces as they crossed the Little Missouri River on their way to Washington. However, the Federals turned at Halfway on the Military Road and headed toward Camden.

Battle of the Bees, Okolona
One mile north of Okolona on County Road 55
On April 3, 1864, General Joseph Shelby caught up with General Samuel Rice's Union troops. They engaged in a skirmish in a pecan orchard during a severe thunderstorm. Along with the other damage due to hail and high winds, several beehives were overturned. The insects first attacked the Confederates, then turned their attention to the Union army. Both armies left the battlefield to their stinging tormentors.

Skirmish at Elkins' Ferry
Three or four miles south of Okolona
General Joseph Shelby had fallen back at the Little Missouri River and moved on the Washington road to Antoine. He crossed the river there to join Marmaduke and Cabell, informing them that the Federals planned to cross at Elkins' Ferry. The Rebels crossed Wolf Creek on the south side of the Little Missouri, skirmished a while, then set up at Elkins' Ferry to await the Federals. Union Colonel Drake described the heavy skirmishing on April 3 and 4, 1864, as "very warm, and my men were falling wounded on my right and left." He commented that the Rebel forces "in one continuous line rushed upon us, firing volleys of musketry and yelling like demons." After many hours of intense fighting, the Federals finally gained control of the ferry crossing. The Union Army camped there and constructed bridges and corduroy roads across the river and bottoms. These were all afloat by April 7, due to heavy rains. The Elkins' Ferry battle site is part of the Camden Expedition National Historic Landmark.

Here is some information about our Association and the great family of Séguin:

The ASSOCIATION DES SÉGUIN D’AMÉRIQUE is a nonprofit organization. We have over 1,000 members and 10% of them are from the USA.

We estimate that about 95% of the Séguin in North America are descending from Francois Séguin who married Jeanne Petit in Boucherville, QC (near Montréal) on October 31, 1672. Francois Séguin was probably a soldier of the Regiment de Carignan (but we have no proof) and Jeanne Petit was a "fille du roi" (King’s daughter or girl sent by the king).

We publish quarterly a newsletter of about 24 pages called "La Séguinière", for the English-speaking members we include an English translation of most of the articles. In June 2003, at the occasion of our 50th edition, the newsletter had 52 pages and half of them were a retrospective of the preceding editions.

We have annual meeting with 150 to 600 Séguin. Our last annual meeting has taken place at Embrun, ON (near Ottawa) on June 25th, 2006

We have published on August 27, 2005, a second edition of a genealogical dictionary of the Seguin in North America. It is available as a bonded book at a cost of Cdn$100. including cost of mail or on CD-ROM at a cost of $28.00 including cost of mail (contact us for discount if paid in US funds). We have more than 12 000 marriages of Séguin (including Ladéroute, Laderoot, Sequin, Seguine, Sayan, Sayen, Sayah, Sawyer, ...) and thousands of births and deaths of Séguin. Many are still missing and mostly from the USA where we rest on our members and correspondents to get that information. We usually need the place and date of birth, death and marriage of a Séguin plus the name of the spouse and of his/her parents.

If you wish to apply for membership, it is $25. for the period from July 1st, to June 30th(US$25. for USA members) payable by check to the order of the Association des Séguin d’Amérique. For new membership from December to June, the membership is reduced to $12.50. If you just wish to exchange genealogical information on the Séguin family, it is fine with us.

John Cloud

Pioneers: John Cloud, 1970, Winn Parish, LA.

Friend Of Davy Crockett

Soldier of War for Independence Buried on Homesite Near Gansville

by Barry Zander

On his way to the Alamo, probably in 1835, Davy Crockett stopped off near
Gansville to visit with John Cloud, only veteran of the Revolutionary War
known to be buried in Winn Parish.

cloud had been a private in the Georgia Troop during the War for Independence,
moving to what was later named Winn Parish, from Kentucky, after the fighting
was over. Born
Feb. 5, 1740, Cloud died four days before his 100th birthday on his home site,
now owned by John M. Maxwell.

Cloud was a native of North Carolina. He fought with the troops from Georgia
during the war, then moved back to North Carolina where he married Miss Lacy.

Cloud, his wife, family, and Lacy and Folsom relatives went to Kentucky. From
there, they followed a nephew of Edward M. Breckinridge (famous for
Breckinridge Park in San Antonio, Texas) to the northwest portion of Winn

Davy Crockett from Tennessee and Ben Milam of Kentucky heard the call of Sam
Houston for troops to defend the Alamo against Mexican General Santa Anna, and
set out to meet Houston at the Prothro Mansion near St. Maurice in Winn

the two fighters stopped off to visit with their friend, John Cloud, for a
week of hunting raccoons to be used for, among other things, "coon skin caps."

Cloud had more than just friends fighting for Texas' independence, according
to local historian Harley B. Bozeman, who is the source for most of the
information about Cloud. Joining Davy Crockett's Mounted Volunteer
Sharpshooters to fight in Texas was Daniel Cloud.

Daniel, a young lawyer practicing in Natchitoches (note: I believe this is in
error; letters on file at the Alamo, from Cloud to relatives, indicates he was
camped near Natchitoches, while enroute to the Alamo, and not that he was
practicing law there), took with him marksmanship abilities with a rifle
inherited from his father (note: according to family records, there is no
indication that this Daniel Cloud is a son of John Cloud, but it is believed
that he might have been a nephew). The young Cloud is believed to have died
with Crockett, Jim Bowie, Milam, William B. Travis, James Bonham and the other
famous men who perished at the Alamo March 6, 1836. (According to records at
the Alamo, young Cloud did in fact die at the Alamo).

The last contact between John Cloud and Davy Crockett was a letter mailed by
Crockett from St. Augustine, Tex., dated Jan. 9, 1836.


Several traces of this part of American history remained in the area long
after John Cloud and Davy Crockett died.

There was a Crockett post office in Ward 10 (in Section 36-13N-5W or about
four miles south of Brewster's Mill [note: Brewton's Mill], about seven miles
southwest of Gansville), named after the famous "Injun' fighter."

Cloud's Crossing between Ward 10 of Winn Parish and Natchitoches Parish is
named after Noah, a son of John Cloud. And descendants of the Revolutionary
War soldier can be found throughout the Gansville area.

Most significant trace of John Cloud, though, is a headstone marking Cloud's
grave. The marker, located in a small graveyard on his property, was erected
by the Shreveport chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

John Maxwell moved to the land once owned by Cloud about five years ago. The
lad was purchased by Cornelius Rushing, a great grandson of the original
owner, who bought the site from the McGinty family.

About a mile north of the Maxwells lives Nolan Harper, a fourth generation
descendant of John Cloud.


Maxwell retired after working for Louisiana Power & Light Co. for 30 years.
He bought the house from Rushing and then cleared out a section of woods that
revealed a two graveyards.

In the small graveyard where John Cloud is buried, there are seven grave
markers, including a monument to Dr. T. A. Wilkinson, Nov. 7, 1848, to Jan 28,

Cloud's marker reads: "John Cloud, North Carolina Pvt., GA Troops,
Revolutionary War, Feb. 5, 1740-Feb. 1, 1840."

The headstone of Elisha O. McGinty was broken before the Maxwells came, but
the legible part gives the dates 1876-Aug. 22, 1884. Elisha was the son of E.
K. and M. C. McGinty.

Wilber Lee Gatlin was a relative of the McGinty who died in infancy, Sept. 19,
1893, to June 22, 1894. Other markers which are engraved say simply "W. L.
G." and
"E. O. McG".

According to Maxwell, a larger graveyard lied behind the small plot. Buried
there in unmarked graves are Indians and Negroes, Maxwell said.

(Several years ago, I became somewhat obsessed with John Cloud and visited
with several of his descendants. Many say that his grave his not in this
cemetery, but at the old Willard Taylor place a few miles away, Ward 4, Winn
Parish. Also, according to an older citizen of Gansville, and a relative to
Cloud, the grave marker is located on part of what was originally known at the
Hagler Plantation, later owned by the McGinty family, and, at one point in
time many years ago, several small free standing chimneys were located in and
around this small cemetery, which turned out to be chimneys of slave cabins.
I have been fortunate enough to have been granted, in the past, permission of
the current landowner to inspect and photograph the grave site. True to form,
my film did not develop and I have not bothered to go back to take more
photos. Further information received concerning Dr. Wilkinson buried at this
site was that the good doctor committed suicide and was not welcomed to be
buried at the Siloam/Gansville Cemetery nearby, where his family is buried.)

William and Zennie Breese...from Donna Allen

Zennie was badly injured in a horseback accident , she was bed-fast for a month or so
forget how long before she died.I got this from old newspaper clippings. Her obit told how her elderly parents would miss her beautiful singing around the house and that she had been such a big help to her mother, interesting side bar was a clip that said Edna Hood had been to visit the ailing Zennie. Edna married Matthew.
Anita obviously told Johnny the story of William who died during a bad snowstorm.
They wanted to bury him at the new Mayday Cemetery but got halted part way there by huge drifts.Not wanting to take the body home where a grieving mother was.
Watson and Sarah's father Sutton Dugan buried him deep in a large drift , intending to continue with him when the storm stopped. When they went back the body had been drug off by wild animals who had dug it up. They never told Sarah who believed he was buried in Mayday.He was the 4th child she had lost since soming to Kansas.

Some CLOUD's to work on

CLOUD, JOAB - PVT - enlisted 16 Mar 1863 - Yellville, AR
in Harrell's Battalion, Arkansas Cavalry, Co. C, CSA

CLOUD, A. Pvt - Enl 15 Sep 1863 in Johnson Co, AR. Deserted 25 Nov 1863
Co. E, 7th AR Cavalry Reg. CSA

Who was WF Cloud?
The New Era newspaper, Fort Smith, AR


The first of this month was a happy day for the ladies and other citizens of Van Buren. The ladies of that place made and presented the 1st Reg't Ark. Infantry, a large Federal Flag, which was elevated to the top of a fine and substantial flag-staff occupying the front yard of the Court House. The rebels once waved the treasonable ensign of the Confederacy from the same towering shaft; but their first endeavor in this shameful boast of their treason resulted in tearing their flag nearly in twain. That disaster may be regarded as an omen of ill to the nefarious scheme of destroying the Federal Nationality, for the purpose of rearing on its ruins an aristocracy of the imperious few, who disregard the will and the interests of the laboring many that constitute the bone and sinew of the Arkansian population.

Appropriate speeches were delivered on the occasion by Colonel J M Johnson, of the 1st Arkansas Infantry, Colonel W F Cloud, of the 2nd Kansas Cavalry, Colonel Williams, of the 1st "Iron-Clads", and Lieutenant Colonel E J Searle, of the 1st Arkansas Infantry. These speeches were loudly applauded, and were well calculated to encourage the patriotic aspirations of the numerous assemblage of citizens and soldiers.

Who is William A. Cloud?

He enlisted Dec. 13, 1863 at Clarksville, AR in Co. K, 2nd AR Infantry Reg.
at 28 years of age, born in Hamilton county, TN (i.e. born ca 1835).

Who is John B. Cloud, born circa 1836 KY?

Two references to John J. Cloud -- are they the same person? Who is he or they?

Hi Genealogy Friends and Family!

We just returned from vacation. The kids were out of school for spring break for 2 weeks and we headed down to the Okefenokee and the Everglades and also spent some time in Key Largo. I'll put some pictures up when I get time. I sent away for Gerald Harris' death cert (dh's grandpa) and hopefully that will be helpful in some way. I'm having trouble getting much on the Harris side. I've been anxiously awaiting the mail! I won't be doing much genealogy in the next week either as my mom and brother will be out for a visit! Happy hunting!

They are all from Okolona Ar but there aren't alot of records online.

WILLIAM CLOUD b 1621 d 1702

William Cloud Sr is my husbands gggggggggg grandfather. Here is some interesting information on him...

All of the male children, except perhaps for Joseph, came to America with the father in 1682. William Cloud was granted 530 acres of land in Pennsylvania by his friend, William Penn on December 7, 1681. The granted land is located on the border of what is now the states of Pennsylvania and Delaware. Land is on the South side of Naaman`s Creek. After the state of Delaware was formed, the land was in New Castle County, DE. Cloud, William, of Calne, in Wiltshire, England, purchased land 7 Oct 1682, which was afterwards laid out in Concord Township. The will of William Cloud, of Concord `being aged and well stricken in years` was proved in 1702, in which he mentions his sons, William, Jeremiah, Joseph, John and Robert. Of these, Joseph came over as a servant to John Bezer, and received his 50 acres of land in Caln Township, where he was living in 1709. John, William and Jeremiah resided on Naaman`s Creek for some time. William Jr was living in Caln in 1715, and died there in 1720. His eldest son, Joseph, was there in 1719, but probably at Pextang after this (Paxtan Twp. is now in Dauphine Co., near Harrisburg, it was part of Lancaster Co. when it was formed in 1729 and then became Dauphine Co.when it was formed). Joseph Sr. married Mary Moore, widow of Richard, and mother of Thomas and John Moore. He died in1739. William Cloud came to America with William Penn, after 1660. He and others were gathered for worship (Friends or Quakers) at Calne, Wiltshire, England May 16, 1660. On September 8, 1681, William Penn granted 500 acres of land in Pennsylvania (later found to be New Castle County, Delaware). He lived in Concord Twp, Chester, Penn. He was a member of Chichester Friends Meeting and his will was made 7 mo. 20, 1700. He came to America in late 1682 or early 1683. The loading of `Unicorn` was mentioned in the London Gazette of 22 June 1682 under a Bristol dateline of 17 June as ship `now ready to take in Goods and Passengers and to sail the next month [for] Pensilvania (sic) and New-Jersey` those interested in taking passage were directed to apply to Thomas Goldney or John Dudlestone in High Street or to the Master. The London Impartial Mercury noted that in Bristol a ship was `fitting out for Pensylvania on board which 40 Quakers together with their families willimbarq (sic).` it further reported that `tis said that they carry over with them 300 pound-worth of half-pence, and farthings which in that Collony (sic) go current for twice their value and `tis added that some discontented Presbyterians will Likewise accompany them.` Twelve days later the same paper reported that the ship `full graught with Quakers bound for Pennsylvania is ready to sail.` William Cloud imported a number of items with him for trading purposesas well as bring with him as an indentured servant Jacob Willis. [25 August] William Cloude: 4 cwt. wrought iron; 3 pieces qty. 120 yds. Wnglish linen; cwt. lead shot; 3 doz. bodices; 150 made garments; 1 1/2 cwt. brass and copper manufactured;1/2 cwt. pewter; 3 samll sad1dles; 3 pieces English fustians; 2 cwt. nails; 6 doz. Irish stockings. Bristol Port Book In 1683 Wm. Cloude had shipped the following additional goods aboard the Bristol Merchant [27 October] WilliamCloude: 40 lbs. serges; 15 lbs. linsey woolsey; 18 lbs. woolen stockings; 14 lbs. haberdashery; 68 lbs. shoes & boots; 2 1/2 cwt. cheese; 3 cwt. wrought iron; 1/2 cwt. nails; 8 lbs. gunpowder; 28 lbs. shot; 1/2 cwt. English soap; 2 cwt. bread,value 23s. [duty] 1s 2d. Bristol Port Books William Cloud`s Will: He made is will on the 20th day of the 7th month 1700 which method of dating is usually a Quaker designation, and same was probated at Chester Aug. 25, 1702, as follows: `I, William Cloud of Concord Sem, in county of Chester, being aged and well stricken in years, do give unto my son William Cloud 100 acres of my purch. land; to my son Jeremiah Cloud 200 acres of my purchased land, to sons, Joseph, John and Robert Cloud one English shilling if demanded; to my grand daughter, HANNAH CLOUD, daughter of JEREMIAH CLOUD, all the rest of my estate, both real andpersonal, she to be Executrix. Son Jeremiah to be Overseer. Wits: Robert Pyle, Ann Pyle, Sadie Pyle.? William Cloud (Clowde), Yeoman, from Seene, Wiltshire, was a First Purchaser of 500 Acres, (9 Mo.1681) which were laid out on the south side of Naamans`s Creek, Chester County. While his lot in Philadelphia in right of his being an F.P. was warranted and surveyed in 1683 In 1691 Wm. Cloud conveyed 200 acres to his sons Joseph and John Cloud; three years latter Joseph conveyed his rights to `his brother John Cloud.` In the `Blackwell quitrent rolls` complied by Receiver General and former Deputy Governor John Blackwell from December 1689-March 1689/90. William Cloud is listed as having 250 taxable acres in Chester County as well as 49 feet of frontage on lot in Philadelphia for which he paid a quitrent of 2s.

Mustard Bread

I've been slacking on my genealogy this month, sorry! This bread came from my husbands, grandmother, Kathryn. I've not done anything on her side of the family yet, but I've got her mustard bread,lol. It's really good with bbq! This is out of the Breese Family cookbook that Donna Allan put together. She mentioned doing another one.

1 loaf of french bread
butter the bread and spread mustard on top. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired. (I usually do one side with just the mustard and one side with the cheese.)
Wrap in tin foil and bake at 350 for 30 mins. For crustier bread, don't wrap in tin foil.

Post any or all on other websites to find relatives.

Query. On one post you have Annie Barnes as Annie Barnes Williams Trevillion. In another post you have her as Annie Barnes. I searched for both and didn't come up with anything proof positive. What is her real surname?

You also mention Jonesboro (Jackson Parish) as place where Alvin and Annie married?

You are SOOO welcome! Yes, Wanda, was going to send you all or send you something via e-mail. I was hoping to find Alvin Clarence Williams, born AR, same time frame as when Anne was born. No luck first try. Here was the source of the obit for Trevillion.

GEORGE S. MORGAN was born in 1858 in Fredericksburg, Va., and in 1862 he accompanied his parents to Washington, D. C. He received his education in the common schools and subsequently learned the trade of barber. He remained in the capital until June 14, 1881, when he removed to Kansas, locating in this city, where he shortly afterward opened a first class tonsorial establishment., on Poyntz Avenue, which he still continues. October 10, 1879, Mr. Morgan married Miss Hermine Strong, of Farmville, Va. He is a charter member and secretary of the Corinthian Lodge, A. F. & A. M., and takes a lively interest in everything pertaining to the welfare of his adopted State.

JOSEPH M. MYERS, Sheriff of Riley County, was born in Hamilton County, Ohio, December 17, 1843. When he was a year old, his parents moved to Hancock County, Ill. where they lived until 1859. In 1858 his father had located a homestead in Riley County, and returning to Illinois for his family, sickened and died. The family, however, followed his intentions and settled on the homestead chose, where the widowed mother still resides. Enlisted August 11, 1862, in Company A, Ninth Kansas, as a private, and served until the close of the war, in the Army of the Frontier. After the war he returned to the farm, where he continued until 1881, when he was elected Sheriff of the county, which office he now fills with ability. He is a member of the I. O. O. F. and G. A. R. He was married in January 1868, at Paola, to Miss Belle White. They have five children - Mattie, born May 1, 1869; Josephine, born October 10, 1871; Phoebe, born November 9, 1877; Dollie, born December 13, 1879; and Louis, born December 17, 1881.

E. L. PATEE, M. D., was born in Oxford, Delaware County, Ohio, February 23, 1832. He was educated at the Ohio Wesleyan University, graduating in the scientific course in 1849. Was a student one year at the Eclectic Medical College, Cincinnati, and for two years at Starling Medical College, Columbus, Ohio, graduating therefrom in the class of 1852. Afterwards he took a one term course at a Homoeopathic Medical College in Cleveland. He began the practice of his profession at Portland, Meigs County, Ohio, in the fall of 1853, where he continued until January, 1854, when he settled and practiced a year, and took a past graduate course at Miama Medical College. In the fall of 1855 he came to Kansas, taking a homestead at Ashland, in Riley County, and the following year moved his family to the State where he had determined to make his home. He came with the Cincinnati Colony, but left the boat at Kansas City, purchased a team, and came the remainder of the way overland. April 14, 1861, he entered the Second Kansas Volunteer Infantry, and was commissioned First Assistant Surgeon. Was mustered into the United States service, June 20, 1861. After the battle of Wilsons Creek and the death of Gen. Lyon, the troops with which he served retreated to Rolla. Lieutenant-Colonel Charles W. Blair ordered him to remove the sick and wounded to St. Louis. His train arrived at night with the suffering men, covered with dust and overpowered with heat. Working all night, he succeeded in dressing the wounds and caring for all his men. Gen. Fremont visited the hospital early in the day, and detecting the marvelous energy and power of the man, ordered him not to return to the front, but placed him in charge of the hospital - New House of Refuge. In July, at his personal request, he was again ordered to the front. Gen. Blunt gave him detached service until September, and then ordered him to report at his headquarters at Fort Scott. He was promoted to be Surgeon, rank of Major, September 19, 1862, and was Medical Director of Blunts army, until July, 1863, when he was detailed upon the staff of Gov. Kearney, ranking as Colonel. In this capacity he helped organize the Fifth and Fourteenth Kansas regiments. He served until the close of the war, and then returned to his practice at Manhattan, where he has been in continuous practice since, and ranks as one of the best surgeons in Kansas. He is purely eclectic in his practice, counseling all schools of practice. He has held several important civil offices. In 1867 he was appointed Clerk of the District Court for Davis County, then attached to Riley for judicial purposes, which position he held by appointment and election for four years. In 1864 he was elected Treasurer of Riley County, and re-elected in 1866, holding the office four years. He has also been Coroner of the county several terms. He is a member of the Masonic order, and of the I. O. O. F., G. A. R., and K. of L. He was married September 22, 1852, in Morgan County, Ohio, to Miss Cynthia A. Dye. They have three children - Alice (Mrs. Dickens), Clarence and Henry, all grown up and away from the parental homestead.

JOHN PIPHER, farmer, P. O. Manhattan, is one of the first settlers of the place, and has been active in every improvement of the city. he was born in Chester County, Pa., August 26, 1811. At the age of twenty-one years he went to Harrisburg, Pa. and learned the trade of tobacconist. Here he worked three years and then went to New Lisbon, Ohio, where he lived seven years, and finally to Cincinnati, where he spent eleven years, where we find him in the spring of 1855, preparing to emigrate to the then young territory of Kansas. A company of seven persons, of which Mr. Pipher was one, purchased a steamboat, the Hartford, and started with a colony of Cincinnatians, intending to locate at or near the mouth of the Republican River near Fort Riley. Leaving Cincinnati in the latter part of April, the steamer made St. Louis in four days. Here a delay of several days took place in trying to secure a pilot, the Missouri River pilot refusing to navigate an abolition boat. Finally leaving St. Louis, they made Kansas City in nine days. The Kaw River being low, the boat was unable to proceed at once, and Mr. Pipher, with two others of the colony and a surveyor, purchased a team, and traveled overland to a point where Junction City now stands, and began surveying the contemplated town which they had determined before leaving Cincinnati to name Manhattan. Finally the boat was started up the Kaw, and after a long and tedious passage, reached the mouth of the Blue River. Here they landed in response to an invitation of a colony from Boston, which they found occupying the land, and after consulting with them, Mr. Pipher and his associates at Fort Riley were sent for and a consolidation of the two colonies finally effected, the Boston Company taking the lands north of Poyntz Avenue, the Cincinnati colony south of that street, amounting in all to over 1,400 acres. The Boston Company, by their very liberal management, had thus secured a powerful ally, avoided a formidable rival, secured building material, the Hartford having on board ten frame houses complete, and more then all, the use of the steamboat designed to run regularly between the new settlement and the Eastern markets. But the boat was destined to never again leave the Kansas River. On her return trip the river had become so low that she was laid up at St. Marys Mission to await the flood from the autumn rain. While lying against the bank of the river, a prairie fire, probably set by two Indians, that the mate had driven from the boat for begging tobacco, swept over the country, leaped on board, and before aught could be done to arrest the flames, the Hartford was a smouldering (sic) ruin. The boat had cost the company $7,000; was insured for $3,500 and this, together with $300 derived from the sale of boilers, was all the company realized from their investment. The bell, with which the pilot was wont to control her movements, was afterward recovered, and is still doing good service in the tower of the First Methodist Episcopal Church of Manhattan. The Cincinnati Company having by the terms of settlement been allowed the honor of naming the future city. After the settlement had been effected, Mr. Pipher became a leader in every enterprise, looking to the future development of the place. For a year he was engaged entirely as a resident agent of the Cincinnati Company, being the only one of the capitalists that had a permanent residence here. Although afterward, one of the company, A. J. Mead, lived here for several years. At the end of the first year Mr. Pipher began business as a merchant, which he continued for some dozen years or more. In 1855, on the organization of the town, he was appointed Justice of the Peace by Gov. Reeder, and by appointment and re-election held the office for five years. He was also elected Mayor in the year of the settlement, and Colonel of a regiment designed to protect the State from the inroads of the border ruffians of Missouri . Mr. Pipher was appointed postmaster, the first for Manhattan, in 1855, and held the office for several years. In 1860 he was elected Probate Judge of Riley County, and continued to be re-elected until 1868 when he declined a re-election. The judge is a man foremost in every good work. He has been a member of the methodist Episcopal Church for more than fifty-eight years, and an officer thereof for more than half a century. He organized the first Methodist Episcopal Society of Manhattan while on board the steamer Hartford, before they had left the Ohio River. He has been a member of the I. O. O. F. since he was twenty years of age, having by dispensation of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania been admitted to a membership before his majority, and for the last twelve years he has been Grand Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of Kansas; has also been Deputy Grand master. He has belonged to all temperance organizations, and is still an active temperance worker.
