Nicholas Bartlett

M, ID# 52, b. 25 January 1742, d. 14 January 1814

  • Other Names*: Nicholas Bartlet.6
  • Note*: They probably married in Virginia. They first settled in Rockingham County, Virginia. In the fall of 1784, Nicholas and Mary and their six children left the Greenbrier colony (then in Rockingham County) and moved to Tennessee, settling a few miles south of Knoxville. This area was then in what was called the State of Franklin, having once been part of North Carolina, and then was on the frontier and subject to trouble with the Cherokee. In 1785 he built a grist mill on Stock Creek, in what then was Greene County and in 1792 became Knox County, and soon the mill was fortified to provide safety from Indian attacks for settlers in the vicinity. Blount County was created from Knox County south of Knoxville in 1795 with "Bartlett's Station" lying on the county line. Nicholas owned a large amount of land and gave much of it to his children before his death. His will took care of only those children who had not received gifts of land from him while he was alive. Nicholas was associated closely with Jeremiah Pearce in Virginia. Four Bartlett daughters married Pearce men, apparently two of them brothers and the other two cousins.4,7,8

Mary Martin

F, ID# 53, b. May 1746, d. 15 July 1837
  • Note*: Although some records show that she lived from 1746 or 1747 to 1837, family tradition is that she almost reached her 100th birthday. After Nicholas died, Mary lived with a daughter, Esther Hunt, who had settled near Edwardsville, Madison County, Illinois, in 1813. She lived there nine years, then moved to the home of another daughter, Mary Pearce, at the Shaker community of South Union in Logan County, Kentucky, where she died and was buried. She was blind in her last years.1

Jude Ann _____

F, ID# 55, b. circa 1756, d. 21 February 1823
  • Note*: Her original surname is uncertain. It has been speculated that it may have been Farrar, Saunders (or Sanders), or Shadrack, as those names seem to have first appeared in the Callaway family after her marriage, and the use of Farrar as her second son's middle name lends some weight to the thought that that was her surname. Some believe it was Moffit. She died at the home of son John, evidently having lived the last part of his life with him.3,8

Nancy Bartlett

F, ID# 58, b. 2 September 1812, d. 28 August 1867
  • Other Names*: Nancy Bartlett Crawford, Nancy Crawford.
  • Obituary*: Among the victims of the yellow fever at Galveston, we find the name of Mrs. N. B. Crawford, of whom the Telegraph gives the following notice:
    “She was born in Knox county, Tennessee, in the year 1815; the wife of Dr. J. W. Crawford, who died in Washington county, Texas, in the year of 1856; the daughter of Major Jesse Bartlett and Frances Calloway [sic], who emigrated to Texas in an early day. Major Jesse Bartlett was one among the first Texians to resist Mexican oppression, and served as an officer in the army under Gen. Sam Houston during the struggle for Texas Independence. Mrs. Crawford was one of the oldest Texians in the State, and resided the largest portion of her life in Washington county, Texas. Some years previous to the war, she moved to Hempstead, where she remained until the close of the war, and then removed to Galveston where, up to her death, she kept the Crawford House. She leaves a son and daughter and many relations and friends to mourn her sore loss. Thus so untimely the community has lost one of its most benevolent servants, Christianity one of the most consistent Christians, and a family a devoted mother."9
  • Note*: She was married in a double ceremony with her sister, Louisa. She operated the Crawford House in Galveston, Texas and died there in a yellow fever epidemic. A son and a daughter survived her.10

  • Obituary*: "JOSEPH C. BARTLETT.
       "RICE, Tex., Sept. 11 [1888].—Joseph C. Bartlett, Esq., aged 75 years, died to-day at the residence of his son, Jesse M. Bartlett, near this place."
    _____

       "Death of an Old Texan.
       "Special Telegram to the Statesman.
       "Corsicana, September 12 [1888].—Joe Bartlett, a Texas veteran, died at his home near Rice yesterday, and the Odd Fellows of this city left this morning to take part in burying their brother. Mr. Bartlett was one of our oldest citizens. He leaves behind him in the county but two of his old war associates."24,25
  • Note*: With his father, he served in the Army of the Republic of Texas during the 1836 Texas Revolution. His eight-year-old bag horse was 'lost in service' on 15 Jul 1836, for which he was reimbursed $125. On 10 May 1838 the Secretary of War for the Republic issued bounty warrant 3291 to him for 320 acres of land for service in the Army of the Republic from 18 Jun 1836 to 18 Sep 1836. Pursuant to the warrant he patented 320 acres in Lampasas County on 11 Sep 1845. He and Amanda moved to present Navarro County, Texas (then part of Robertson County) in the same year, when the area was just being settled and was still somewhat the frontier. They first lived at Taos (Porter's Bluff) on the Trinity River. In 1846 he was appointed Navarro County tax collector by his friend, Sheriff James Allen Johnson. He also served the county as justice of the peace in the 1860's and was the first postmaster of Rice, serving from 2 Oct 1872, when the post office was established, to 23 Nov 1875. Federal census records for 1850 give his occupation as farmer and the value of his real estate as $3,000; the 1860 census shows his land holdings had increased to $4,000 and his personal estate was valued at $1,200. The family moved from near the Trinity westward to a farm three or four miles south of present Rice, building their home on a site now on the north side of Farm Road 1126, about a mile west of the railroad tracks. He died at the home of his son J.M., probably on this same farm near Rice, on 11 Sep 1888. When his first wife, Amanda, died in 1851, at age 29, Joseph, then 37, they had four young children, the oldest then being 11. About five years later, he married Martha Ann Elizabeth Norvell, who died at age 45, when Joseph was 60. He was remembered by a niece for his gentle, polished manners, his love of books, and his careful training of his children.26,27,28

Samuel L. Millett

M, ID# 64, b. 6 April 1801, d. 11 November 1863

Samuel Millett's tombstone (center), Riverside Cemetery, Seguin, Tex., by Roger Bartlett. Stone at left is that of his daughter, Allie. Stone at right was placed by State of Texas.

  • Note*: He graduated from Bowdoin College in Maine and came to Texas in Apr 1831, was granted land in Austin's second colony on 20 Apr 1832, and was at the Battle of San Jacinto on 21 Apr 1836 as part of Mosely Baker's Company D of the First Regiment. He became a school teacher, at $400 a year. Decades later a former student remembered: "In 1835, Samuel Millett, originally from Maine, taught school for six months in Kennard's Prairie, five miles from our home. I was one of his pupils and boarded with the teacher. This was the longest term of my schooling. During this time I studied only English grammar and geography with short lessons in John Walker's Dictionary. I used Lindley Murray's English Grammar and John Adams' Geography. These two books were doubtless the best of their kind that had ever been published. The geography and its accompanying atlas were separate volumes, and the maps, showing the natural division by watercourses, were far preferable to those now published [circa 1910-1913], which nearly obliterate the courses of streams by giving the chief prominence to railroad lines. Geography, as then taught, was an indispensible adjunct to the study of history." He traveled overland to California in 1849 with an expedition to the gold fields and returned to Texas two years later.5,6,7,8,9

John C. Neill

M, ID# 66, d. after July 1842
  • Other Names*: John Neal.
  • Note*: Although some sources refer to Louisa as his widow, they divorced in July 1842 and therefore his death must have occurred after that date. He probably was the John Neal who served in Henry Wax Karnes's Second Cavalry Regiment from 29 Feb to 30 Apr 1836, including participating in the Battle of San Jacinto on 21 Apr, and in Captain Hill's company from 30 Apr to 30 May 1836. He also may be the John C. Neal who lived in Washington-on-the-Brazos in 1836 and with several others agreed to rent for three months the building where the convention that declared Texas independence was to meet (on which the group defaulted).6,7,5

  • Note*: He was born in Tennessee and moved to Texas in 1836, after the Battle of San Jacinto, to serve in the Army of the Republic of Texas. In 1842 he enlisted as a private in a volunteer company and was wounded at the Battle of Salado Creek on September 18. When the Somervell expedition was announced the next month, he enlisted as a private in the South Western Army, later was elected a third lieutenant, and stayed with the army until it reached the Rio Grande; he then returned to San Antonio and thus avoided capture in the Battle of Mier and subsequent possible execution in the "black bean incident." The next year, 1843, at Gov. Sam Houston's direction, he led the party that removed the state's archives and attempted to move them from Austin to Houston in the unsuccessful Archive War. Later that year he moved to a farm on Chambers Creek in what is now Ellis County, Texas. He led a party that scouted for hostile Indians in the Wichita Mountains in 1844, and likely was the Thomas Smith who served as a lieutenant in the Robertson County ranger force for most of 1845. In the fall of 1845 he was a commissioner who negotiated peace treaties with ten Indian tribes, the last Indian treaty of the Republic of Texas. In the summer of 1846 he raised a volunteer company, Smith's Battalion of the Texas Mounted Volunteers, which he later commanded as a major, that defended the western frontier against Indian raids. His battalion mustered out of federal service on 17 Aug 1847, and he returned home, probably to Navarro County, where he commanded a ranger company on Richland Creek. He died of "winter fever." His biography in The New Handbook of Texas states that he and "Mary Louise (Bartlett) O'Neill, the widow of John C. O'Neill," had three children, but no information on the children has been found. His biography in Annie Carpenter Love's History of Navarro County states that he had a son, Thomas I. Smith, who died in childhood and was buried near what is now First Avenue in Corsicana.8,9,10

Judge Clinton McKamy Winkler

M, ID# 68, b. 19 October 1821, d. 13 May 1882

Clinton McKamy Winkler, from Putman's Navarro County History, p. 87.

  • Obituary*: "Austin, May 13 [1882].—Judge C. M. Winkler, of the Court of Appeals, died here at 1 o'clock this morning, from flux, with which he was taken down last Tuesday evening, and peacefully and easily, surrounded by his wife and children and all the members of the Courts. Deceased was born in North Carolina, in 1821, and came to Texas in 1840, settling in Franklin, now Robertson county, where he commenced the study of law under Chas. H. Raymond. From 1840 to 1846 he was connected with the courts, first as deputy clerk and afterwards as clerk, and in the latter year he entered upon the practice of law. In 1848, he moved to Corsicana, which city was his home during the remainder of his life. Entering the war in command of a company from Navarro county, he participated in the battles of Seven Pines, Gaines's Mill, Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and many lesser engagements. He was severely wounded in the right thigh at Gettysburg, and was soon after promoted to the rank of Colonel. As a soldier his career was brilliant as his services in civil life were eminently useful.
       "At a bar meeting in the morning—Judge John Hancock presiding, Mr. Dudley Wooten, secretary—a committee, composed of Hon. J. H. McLeary, attorney-general, Major A. M. Jackson, Governor E. J. Davis, Judge A. S. Walker, Judge Samuel A. Wilson, and Judge A. W. Terrell, was appointed to prepare and report proper resolutions of condolence and respect for the memory of the deceased. The following resolutions were reported and unanimously adopted:
       "Whereas the Hon. C. M. Winkler, judge of the Bench of Appeals of the State of Texas, has departed this life in the midst of his usefulness, and while engaged in the faithful discharge of the responsible duties intrusted to him by the people of the State; be it
       "Resolved, 1. The bar in attendance now not only give utterance to their own sentiments, but echo those of their bretheren [sic] throughout the State of Texas, in deploring the death of the deceased judge as a public calamity of no ordinary moment.
       "2. That so long as unselfishness, patriotism, unsullied integrity and fidelity to every trust and duty, whether public or private, shall be held in esteem, that long and wide the name and memory of C. M. Winkler be enshrined in the annals of Texas and the hearts of her people, and the secretary of this meeting is instructed to communicate to them these resolutions.
       "3. That we tender the family of the lamented deceased our most heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement and sorrow.
       "In addition to the above proceedings Major C. S. West was appointed to present the resolutions and action of the meeting to the Supreme Court of this State, Major A. M. Jackson was selected to perform the same duty in the Court of Appeals, and Attorney-General McLeary in the Commission of Appeals. Major W. M. Walton, Judge John Hancock, Colonel A. S. Peele, and Judge Samuel A. Wilson were selected to act as pall-bearers. The Court of Appeals went with the remains this afternoon to Corsicana."16
  • Note*: His parents owned a small farm in North Carolina and moved to Indiana in 1835. He migrated to Texas at age 18 and settled in Franklin in July 1840, where he was deputy county clerk of Robertson County from 1840 until 1843, when he became clerk pro tem of the district court. The next year he was admitted to the bar in Robertson County in 1844 and was elected district clerk. He is said to have had a role in causing the 1st Texas Legislature to create Navarro County in 1846, is credited with sponsoring legislation to make Corsicana the county seat, and moved to the new county in 1847. He represented Robertson County in the House of Representatives of the 2d Texas Legislature. He practiced law during the 1850's and in 1861 joined half a dozen others in organizing the secession effort in the county. He commanded the Navarro Rifles, which became Company I, 4th Regiment, of Hood's Texas Brigade, the only Texas infantry unit in the Army of Northern Virginia under Gen. Lee. He was severely wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg, participated in campaigns in Tennessee, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, and attained the rank of lieutenant colonel. As a lieutenant colonel he was in command of the 4th Texas Infantry when it surrendered at Appomattox. After the Civil War he represented Navarro, Ellis, Hill, and Kaufman Counties in the 13th Texas Legislature and was elected one of the three judges of the Texas Court of Appeals, in which position he was serving when he died. He was grand master of the Texas Masonic lodge in 1870 and was state Democratic executive committee chairman and was active in party efforts to end Reconstruction. He and Louisa had three children, and he and Angelina, who was from Richmond, Virginia, had six children. He was a lifelong Methodist. Winkler County in West Texas is named for him.17,4,18

John Beldin

M, ID# 72, b. circa 1812, d. 15 September 1841
  • Other Names*: John Belden.6
  • Note*: • He arrived in Texas in Oct 1835 as a member of W. G. Cooke's company of "New Orleans Greys."
    • He was at the fall of Bexar in Dec 1835, in which he was wounded while spiking a cannon, and at the Battle of San Jacinto in Apr 1836 in Amasa Turner's Company B.
    • After the Texas Revolution (1836) he lived in Houston, where he died of congestive fever. A newspaper report of his death said he was buried in the City Cemetery on West Dallas Avenue in Houston. That burial ground apparently is now part of Founders Memorial Park, a small cemetery on West Dallas Avenue. A search of that cemetery in August 2011 failed to locate a marked grave for him, but there were many unmarked graves and many others that were marked with a stone inscribed "unknown."
    • He was issued a bounty certificate for 320 acres of land for serving in the army from 22 Oct 1835 to 16 Dec 1835; a donation certificate for 640 acres for participation in the Battle of San Jacinto, and a headright certificate for one-third of a league of land. The Congress of the Republic of Texas granted him a league of land for having been permanently disabled while serving in the Texas army.12,13,6

       "THE undersigned having settled on a bluff on the west bank of Trinity river, ten miles above Buffalo and ten miles below the mouth of the East fork of the river, and having opened roads, built bridges, and put in a ferry boat, which cannot be surpassed by any ferry or road on Trinity river; the distance being very much shortened, would respectfully invite Travellers to come by, and examine for themselves.
       "He would also inform travelers, that he will keep a
          "HOUSE OF ENTERTAINMENT.
       "His table will be furnished with the best the country affords; his stables will also be well furnished with plenty of corn and fodder, and movers can be supplied with corn, fodder, potatoes, &c., on reasonable terms.
       "TRAVELLERS will find this a direct Route from the Eastern and North Eastern counties of Texas, as well as the Northern and Western States generally, to Austin, San Antonio, &c.
          "R. H. PORTER."
    • "We are authorized to announce PORTER’S BLUFF, upon the Trinity River, in Navarro county, as a contesting locality for the location of the seat of government for the State, at the election in 1850, required by the 35th article of the 3d section of the Constitution."9,10
  • Note*: He was an early settler at the Falls of the Brazos in present Falls County, Texas. He signed as a witness an Indian treaty signed at Tehuacana Creek on 9 Oct 1844. Having received land on the Trinity River in what is now northeastern Navarro County for his service in the Texas Revolution, in 1848 he platted the town of Taos on it with the expectation that it would become an important shipping point. It also was known as Porter's Bluff and was one of the earliest settlements in the county. A ferry began operating, and the town grew to have a blacksmith shop, several stores, and a sawmill and to serve as a port for small steamboats, or packets, that operated on the river before the Civil War. Arrival of the railroad in the 1870's killed the river traffic. A post office operated there from 1900 to 1904 under the name Porter's Bluff. The community was a ghost town by 1930. He appears occasionally as Maj. Porter or Col. Porter, but the basis for his titles is not known. In the year he died (of cholera), 1849, he was taxed for ten surveys of land, twenty-five slaves, and a buggy, probably a large estate for that time.11,12

Dr. Richard L. Tate

M, ID# 74, b. circa 1817
  • Note*: His name appears as R. L. Tate in some records. It has been speculated that he had died by 20 May 1857, as that is when Emmie patented land in Navarro County in her own name, but he was alive in 1861 if he is the Dr. Tate in this article: "Last week we were shown, by Dr. Tate, the horn of a snake killed in Trinity River bottom in 1851. It is 15 1/2 inches long, very black, rather crooked, and covered to within about three inches of the point with a succession of raised rings. The snake when killed was some twelve feet long. Did anyone ever see a horned snake that could beat this?" In addition, he and Frances appear in the 1870 census for Denton County, Texas, living in or near Lewisville (with daughter Florence), in which he is described as a physician with a personal estate of $300, and in the 1880 census for Navarro County, living on Main Street in Corsicana (with daughter Florence and her husband and children), in which again he is described as a physician.8,9,10,11

Lucien L. Bartlett's tombstone, Rader Cemetery, Kaufman County, Texas, courtesy of Frank Everett.
  • Other Names*: Lucien L. Bartlett, Lucien Bartlett, Lucian Lusk Bartlett, Lucian L. Bartlett, L. L. Bartlett.
  • Scrapbook*: “Maj. L. L. Bartlett has just returned from New Orleans with a stock of 18 or 20,000 dollars worth of goods, selected with the utmost care, as to the wants of the people and at prices that will not fail to satisfy all.”.15
  • Note*: He worked for a while as a surveyor in the area that is now Fort Worth, Texas but because of Indian harrassment of his family while he was gone he moved to Chatfield and opened a dry goods store. While Lucien was in Shreveport buying goods, a competitor, who had a store a couple of miles down the Trinity River, burned down Lucien's store. The arsonist was lynched and Lucien moved to Van Zandt County, where he was a teacher and merchant and lived in Wills Point. He died of neck cancer.16,17,18

Thomas Smith Bartlett1

M, ID# 83, b. 1 October 1843, d. 3 November 1922

Believed to be Thomas Smith Bartlett. Courtesy of Michael Pickel.

  • Obituary*: BARTLETT—Malakoff, Henderson Co., Texas, Nov. 5.—Thomas S. Bartlett, an old citizen of Malakoff, formerly of Rice, died here Friday. Mr. Bartlett was 78 years old. He is survived by three sons, J. C. Bartlett of Wichita Falls, J. W. Bartlett of Bardwell and T. A. Bartlett of Malakoff, also one daughter, Mrs. Hettie Drummond of Corsicana. He was buried in Rice Cemetery.14
  • Note*: He was a farmer in Navarro County, and it was said that he lived his entire life without leaving Texas. He was on the first board of trustees of the First Baptist Church in Rice, Texas, established in 1875. It is known from a newspaper obituary that he was buried in the Rice Cemetery, but no marker has been found and it is assumed that he was buried in an unmarked grave beside the marked grave of his wife.15,16,17

James Edward ('Jimmie') Bartlett1,2

M, ID# 85, b. 4 November 1845, d. 1 March 1926

James Ed. Bartlett, courtesy of Ralph Bartlett.

  • Scrapbook*: "J. E. Bartlett has removed here [Rice, Texas] and has built a residence near the schoolhouse."17
  • Obituary*: Two Deaths at Santa Anna.
    Special to The News.
    SANTA ANNA, Texas, March 4.—J. E. Bartlett, 80, a pioneer citizen of this section, died and was buried here Wednesday. . . .15
  • Note*: His middle name may have been Edmond or Edmund. In the latter part of the 19th Century he lived in Rice, Texas, where it was reported in 1894 that he had built a residence near the schoolhouse. Later he farmed near Santa Anna, Texas but lived in town. Sons Ed and Will farmed with him until their marriages. He was on the first board of trustees of the First Baptist Church in Rice, established in 1875, and was a deacon in the First Baptist Church in Santa Anna for many years. After Piercy died, Jimmie and his granddaughter, Mary McCorkle, maintained the family home. He was affectionately called "Uncle Jimmie" in the community in his later years. In a 1925 pension application to the State of Texas he swore that he had enlisted in Company E, 12th Regiment, Parson's Brigade, Texas Cavalry on 1 Feb 1864 and was discharged four months later, on 10 Jun 1864 "by reason of chronic sore eyes." He also swore that at the time of application he owned a home of $1,800 assessed value and no other property. Although in response to the state's inquiry the U.S. War Department responded it had no record of his service, the state approved the pension.18,19,20

Judge German Walker1

M, ID# 88, b. 29 October 1832, d. 26 October 1916

German Walker, courtesy of Dorothy Bartlett.

  • Biography*: "Of Rice People Who Are Great And Those Who Are Growing Great
       "German Walker
       "The subject of this sketch is a true representative of the old south aristocracy--gentlemanly, dignified and courteous. He was born in Simpson county, Mississippi, in 1832, and is now in the 78th year of his age--the oldest citizen of Rice today. His early life was passed among the pleasant surroundings of a rural home, but one where the public school facilities were very limited, indeed; and as the judge himself expresses it his last school days were passed in a desperate struggle with the oldtime blue-back speller. On December 14th, 1852, he was happily united in marriage to Miss Isa F. Williams, of Lawrence county, Mississippi, and from which union eleven children were born, seven of whom are now living. The judge is proud of the fact that he is grandfather to thirty-two children and great grandfather to ten children, living in the States of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. About sixteen months ago the loving companion of fifty-seven years of his life winged her spirit to the Mercy Throne in the fields of Immortality, and her remains sleep quietly in the cemetery at this place. Mr. Walker served the people of his home county as assessor, sheriff and tax collector and circuit and probate clerk, he also represented the county in the lower house of the state legislature during the reconstruction period, all of which offices he discharged to the satisfaction of his constituents and credit to himself. He removed to Navarro county in 1882, and located at Chatfield, where he engaged in farming. Mr. Walker served the people of this precinct as justice of the peace for ten years, and, it is said of him by those in a position to know, that he made one of the best officers the county ever had. He voluntarily gave up the office some six years ago. Judge Walker is an incessant reader and keeps well abreast of the current events of the day. He can call to mind and talk entertainingly of all the prominent political leaders who figured in the history-making epochs of the country during the past sixty years. He served in the Confederate army for four years. Mr. Walker is a well preserved man for his age, which he attributes to always enjoying a clear conscience and to temperate living--that is to say, he always ate and drank anything he desired."24
  • Obituary*: "JUDGE GERMAN WALKER SUCCUMBS TO OLD AGE
       "Judge German Walker, the oldest citizen of the Rice country, died Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock, after lingering at death's door for several days. Several months ago Mr. Walker fell while attempting to rise from his chair, and since then had gradually grown weaker. Until this accident he was in good health and was remarkably strong for a man of his age.
       "German Walker was born Oct. 29, 1832, in Simpson county, Mississippi, and was married in 1852 in the same county. In January, 1882, he moved to Chatfield and resided there until about 16 years ago, when he moved to this place, where he has resided continuously since except for several extended visits to Mississippi and Alabama after the death of his wife 7 years ago.
       "Judge Walker served the cause of the Confederacy during the entire time of the Civil War as captain Company H Sixth Mississippi regiment. He rendered valuable service to the cause and took part in many important battles, the most notable of which was the battle of Shiloh. He had many narrow escapes from death and in this battle was shot through the cap.
       "After the war, during the reconstruction days, he played a prominent part in restoring the country to law and order. He served three yeas in the Mississippi Legislature during this period, and here as in private life and on the battlefield, gave to his country his best service. He also served Simpson county, Mississippi, two years as tax collector and assessor and nine years as sheriff. It is said that during this entire term as a peace officer he never drew a gun in the discharge of his duties. After moving to Texas he served this precinct for 16 years as justice of the peace, and the office has never been more efficiently filled. Judge Walker belonged to that fast vanishing type of old Southern gentlemen. For sixty two years he was a member of the Masonic order, and until ill health prevented it was a regular attendant to all its meetings.
       "Judge Walker was the father of eleven children, six of whom survive. They are as follows: H. S. Walker of Mobile, Alabama; Mrs. A. C. McLaurin of Silver Creek, Mississippi; Mrs. T. R. Harwell of Hamlin, Texas; Mrs. D. M. Loop, Miss Sallie Walker and E. B. Walker of this place. Besides his children there are 32 grand children and ten great grand children.
       "Judge Walker has a large number of friends who mourn his death. He was a gentleman in every respect, had the respect and admiration of all who knew him and led a clean moral life. Besides losing its oldest citizen, Rice has lost a man whose life's work seemed to be to bring cheerfulness to all, and whose long and useful life was due to temperance in all his habits.
       "Funeral services were held at the home of D. M. Loop Friday afternoon at 2:30, conducted by Revs. R. W. Nation and M. A. Roberts. Interment took place at Rice cemetery with Masonic honors."25
  • Note*: He served several terms as sheriff and tax collector, probate clerk, and tax assessor of Simpson County, Mississippi and was a member, in 1871-1874, of the Mississippi House of Representatives. They moved to Navarro County, Texas in January 1882 and farmed near Chatfield. He was a justice of the peace there for ten years until he resigned. He is listed on a muster sheet of 24 Aug 1861 as third lieutenant, Co. H, 6th Regiment, 2nd Brigade, Mississippi Volunteers, commanded by Colonel J.J. Thornton, Provisional Army under General Polk. In his 1913 application to the State of Texas for a soldier's pension, he stated that he did not have income reaching $150 per year or assets of more than $1,000, that he was not able to engage in an occupation (at age 81), that he had enlisted in Co. H, 6th Mississippi Infantry on 21 Aug 1861, served as a 1st Lieutenant in Co. H, later served in Co. B, 4th Mississippi Cavalry, and was paroled by federal authorities on 12 May 1865, "account of the war being closed." From the Rice Rustler, 11 Nov 1910: "The subject of this sketch is a true representative of the old south aristocracy—gentlemanly, dignified and courteous. . . . His early life was passed among the pleasant surroundings of a rural home, but one where the public school facilities were very limited, indeed; and as the judge himself expresses it his last school days were passed in a desparate [sic] struggle with the oldtime blue-back speller. . . . The judge is proud of the fact that he is grandfather to thirty-two children and great grandfather to ten children, living in the States of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. . . . Judge Walker is an incessant reader and keeps well abreast of the current events of the day. He can call to mind and talk entertainingly of all the prominent political leaders who figured in the history-making epochs of the country during the past sixty years. He served in the Confederate army for four years. Mr. Walker is a well preserved man for his age, which he attributes to always enjoying a clear conscience and to temperate living—that is to say, he always ate and drank anything he desired." He was living with daughter Fannie when he died.26,24,27

Benjamin Michaux Clopton, from Kansas Kin, courtesy of Pat Clopton Wheeler.

  • Scrapbook*: Sold His Stock.
    RICE, Tex., March 24.—Mr. B. M. Clopton, druggist, has sold his stock of goods to Mr. J. A. Lockey [Lackey?]. Mr. Clopton's health is such that he decided to attend to it only for a time.21
  • Obituary*: CLOPTON—Corsicana, Tex., April 7.—B. M. Clopton Sr., an old citizen of Corsicana, who came to Texas in 1848, died at 6:30 tonight.22
  • Note*: In 1850 he was working as a tailor in Rutherford County, Tennessee. He opened the first drug store in Rice, Texas moving there from nearby Chatfield about 1872, when the railroad reached Rice. On 19 Apr 1862 he enlisted at Springfield, Texas as a private in Company B, Nelson's Regiment, 10th Texas Infantry. He was captured 11 Jan 1863, was hospitalized at Petersburg, Virginia until April, and was exchanged 5 May 1863. The 1870 census for Navarro County, Texas describes him as a merchant and values his real property at $4,000 and his personal property at $300; it indicates the family was living near Chatfield.23
