Boat(w)right Family Genealogy in America

Generation 7


6-14. NANCY BOATWRIGHT (DANIEL7, BENONI6, JOHN5, JOHN4, JOHN3, ROBERT2, Not Yet Determined1) was born Abt. 1760 in Hanover County, Virginia.


6-15. JANE BOATWRIGHT (DANIEL7, BENONI6, JOHN5, JOHN4, JOHN3, ROBERT2, Not Yet Determined1) was born Abt. 1762 in Hanover County, Virginia. She married (1) FNU SMITH before 1798. She married (2) PETER GIBBONS on 16 Feb 1810 in Cumberland County, Virgina. She married (3) WILLIAM HUDSON on 09 Dec 1822 in Cumberland County, Virginia.


6-16. JOHN JOSEPH BOATWRIGHT (DANIEL7, BENONI6, JOHN5, JOHN4, JOHN3, ROBERT2, Not Yet Determined1) was born 31 Dec 1764 in Hanover County, Virginia, and died Abt. 1814 in Cumberland County, Virginia. He married FRANCES ELIZABETH TINSLEY 24 Nov 1785 in Powhatan County, Virginia, daughter of WILLIAM WYATT TINSLEY and ELIZABETH HARRISON. She was born 1767 in Amherst County, Virginia, and died 1830 in Blountsville, Blount County, Alabama.


Notes for JOHN JOSEPH BOATWRIGHT:

See link for copy of John Joseph Boatwright and Frances Elizabeth Tinsley Marriage Record.

It must be noted, Mr. Edward Johnston (kirksi@excite.com) has helped prove that John Boatwright married to Jerusha B. Penick is, in fact, the Revolutionary War Veteran who filed Pension Claim Number S. 5290.

A number of Boatwright descendants have mistakenly claimed John Joseph Boatwright, married to Frances Elizabeth Tinsley in Cumberland County, Virginia, was the veteran. Mr. Johnston states, "Frances Elizabeth Tinsley Boatwright was a widow when she moved to Logan County, Kentucky and John, her husband, died in Cumberland County, Virginia sometime in 1814 per Court records of Cumberland County, Virginia 1814-1816 on microfilm at Virginia State Library and not in Kentucky after 1833". The John Boatwright in Prince Edward County, Virginia that applied for a military pension in 1833 is not John Joseph Boatwright.

An examination of the census records, marriage records, etc. of Prince Edward Co., VA along with the witnesses John named, under oath, who could "testify as to his character for veracity and their belief of his services as a soldier of the Revolution", further proves this position. One of the witnesses named was Nathaniel Penick, a brother of John's wife Jerusha B. Penick Boatwright.


Ricker's notes from "The Boat(w)right Family of Southeastern Virginia" states that, "four of his sons, described as 'tall, rawboned men, from 6'2" to 6'4" in stocking feet,' also enlisted in the Continental Army. Three were killed by Indians who were with the British in a battle at Craney's Island at the mouth of the Roanoke River in Virginia."

It is presumed that Ricker is talking about the War of 1812 as John's sons would have been too young to have fought in the Revolutionary War.


From Gary Shanklin: This past week I received copies of documents from Logan County, Kentucky that detail a land dispute over the land of Frances Tinsley Boatwright after her death on 30 Jun 1836. I am attaching a photo of the list of the children in the court filing. It really helps to clarify this family. I have posted most of the findings into my tree on Ancestry.com which is named Shanklin-Brumfield.

Some of the findings are the approximate time of death for Prior and Marlow before 1836; the children of Marlow; and additional children that have not been connected in the past including Alexander T, Ann that married Phineas Bradley, and Susanna that married Oliver Bales, Benjamin H, John Daniel and Francis Washington. The document also states that Prior's children are unknown and that Prior was deceased in Jul 1836 when the dispute was filed.

I believe that Naomi Brockman's brother Samuel married Mary the daughter of Marlow since he helped Marlow's daughter Arabella with the security bond to marry Littleton Sanford. Source: Gary Shanklin

"Valentine Boatright lived on a farm a few miles from Cumberland and Court House, VA. Was the owner of several slaves at the time of his death, about 1840. My father and I were on the old place when on a trip to that county in 1903, and the place is yet known as the 'old Boatright farm'. There are no buildings on the place at present. A few miles from the place is the farm owned by a sister during her life time. Grandfather Valentine and Grandma are buried on the place. The farm of 50 acres was sold a few years previous for $125.00. The old house was still standing, and in a very good state of preservation."------G.W. Boatwright, March 18, 1906.

Sarah apparently died before 1808 as she is not mentioned in her father's will, or she is the same person known as Sally Meador.

Notes for BENJAMIN BENONI BOATWRIGHT:

Elizabeth Blackburn Boatwright Gravestone

He is generally known as "Benjamin"; however, in his youngest brother's list of the children of James Boatwright, his name is shown as "Benoni-called Benjamin." Some documents spell his name as Benjamine.

(BENONI)..."Son of my sorrow", a Biblical reference, Genesis 35:18. Story of Rachel, wife of Jacob: "As she breathed her last-for she was dying-she named her son Ben-Oni, but his father named him Benjamin."

Norman Hurd Ricker indicates Benjamin was reported as a tithe by his father James which was required when he was age 16 but common practice not to do so until "reminded by the Court". Benjamin was required to report himself at age 21; he did not, so was residing elsewhere in September 1790.

Norman Hurd Ricker also indicates that records reflect Benjamin served as a Private in Captain Hudson M. Wingfield's Infantry Company of the 4th Virginia Regiment from 03/16/1814-04/11/1814 at Norfolk, Virginia. He also served as a Private in Captain Jesse Woodson's Company of the 1st Regiment at Holly Springs from 10/01/1814-to 11/04/1814 as a substitute for Richard Boatright. He further served in Captain John Pollock's Light Infantry Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Regiment of the Virginia Militia from 12/28/1814-02/21/1815 as a substitute for Shadh Alvis, Sr.

Benjamin died intestate. Elizabeth Blackburn, his widow, was appointed Administrator of his estate after his death in 1816. She moved to Kentucky with some of her children about 1821.

A petition filed in Garrard Co., KY circuit court by William Blackburn of Powhatan Co., Va. claimed that she illegally removed property of Benjamin's estate from Virginia jurisdiction. William had signed a surety bond for Elizabeth and he wanted to be removed from responsibility. See record of Benjamin's Estate: Powhatan Co., Va. Will book 5, pp 105 & 122.

From "Boatwright's of Virginia", R.G. Boatright, 1961:

Benjamin was probably born in that part of Cumberland County, Va. which later became a part of what is now Powhatan County. Powhatan County was created in the year 1777 from portions of Cumberland and Chesterfield counties. He died in Powhatan County, Va. 13 June 1816. He apparently was a large land owner. See: Powhatan Co. Virginia Will Book 5, p. 105 for probate record; Estate inventory... Will Book 5, p. 122.

The marriage records of Powhatan County show that Benjamin married Elizabeth Blackburn 19 April 1797. She was a daughter of James Blackburn and Rhoda Baugh who were then residing in Buckingham Co., Va. The witnesses to this marriage were: John Radford and Judith Blackburn. See: Powhatan County, Va. - Marriage Records (1777-1853), Pg 34.

Benjamin Boatwright was listed in the 1810 census of Powhatan County. He and a William Blackburn are listed next to each other, which would indicate that they were enumerated at the same time. It is assumed that William Blackburn was a brother of Elizabeth Blackburn.

In obedience to an order of the worshipful the Court of Powhatan County, we, the undersigned, being first sworn, having viewed and appraised the personal estate of Benjamin Boatwright decd and find it to consist of the articles above specifyed, and of the value above stated. Given under our hands this 16th day of August in the year 1816. Peter Dupery

Joseph B. Davis

At a Court of monthly sessions holden for the County of Powhatan on the 21st day of August 1816.

This appraisement of the personal estate of Benjamin Boatwright deceased was presented in Court and was by the Court ordered to be recorded.

Wm S. Dance, C.

Without prior approval of the Court, Elizabeth moved the family and Estate Property of Benjamin to Kentucky; leaving her Uncle William Blackburn responsible under bond to the Court for administration of the Estate, and without the ability to perform. William Blackburn took legal action to protect his bond.

To the Honorable Judge of the Garrard (County KY) Circuit Court in Chancery sitting, the orator, William Blackburn, complaining, showeth unto your honor that Benjamin Boatright, late of Powhatan County Virginia, departed this life intestate on the day of June, 1816 in said County of Powhatan, and on the 17th day of July 1816, Elizabeth Boatright, his widow, who is made defendant hereto, qualified as his Administratrix in the County Court of said County and then and there entered into an Administration Bond with George Mosely and your orator, as her securities in the penalty of $5,000 dollars a copy of which bond for greater certainty is here exhibited marked Exhibit A.

The personal estate constituting appoints and then have aforesaid addition was appraised to $2,674.60 dollars as will appear by reference to a certified copy of said appraisement here exhibited and marked B. decedent at his death left the following children, the following heirs to wit: Martha, James, William, Eliza, Allen, RhodeAnne, Lucy, and Benjamin Boatright. The last five of whom are infants. About three years ago, said Administrator, with the said children, who are also made defendants, removed to Garrard County, in Kentucky, without having returned any Inventory of said estate, or have made any settlement thereof with the County Court of Powhatan, that he knows of, and bringing with her all or most of the said estate, or its proceeds, she made no allotment for distribution of said estate among said children, but is managing and disposing of the same, as if it were her own.

Your orator is apprehensive that said estate may be wasted or illegally and improvidently managed to his eventual injury as security as aforesaid. By removal to Kentucky said Elizabeth has become unexcessible by the County Court of Powhatan. In this predicament your orator does not only endanger of ultimate liability and loss as security but is removeless except in your Court of Chancery.

In tender consideration whereof and as he is remidiless at law, he prays interposition of your Honor he prays that defendant may be compelled to answer this bill. He prays that you will restrain by interposition from sellers or otherwise, putting out of her hands said property or any part thereof until this bill be heard and disposed of, he prays that on the final hearing your Honor will make said injunction perpetual or take said estate out of the possession of said Administrator unless you will indemnify your orator aforesaid any liability as security as aforesaid, that you will compel said heirs to make distribution among them-selves of the said estate liable to such distribution or waive any claim hereafter on your orator as security as aforesaid. And that you will grant such other and faithful relief as may be just and proper.

Notes for ELIZABETH BLACKBURN:

See picture of Elizabeth taken in 1860, at age 80.

According to Denny Boatright, the original Boatwright Homestead was purchased by Benjamin Daniel Boatwright, the youngest son of Benjamine (Benoni) and Elizabeth Blackburn Boatwright, on August 31, 1835. His mother, Elizabeth, lived in the house until she died in 1862. The property consisted of 175.4 acres and the log house and the sale is recorded in Madison County deed Book W, page 100.

Boatwright Homestead - Madison County, Kentucky On June 30, 1852, the Homestead and property was deeded to Alexander A. Boatwright, another son, by the other children and heirs. Alexander was a widower at that time and lived with his mother, Elizabeth, and his daughter, Eliza Ann. Alexander was an ordained Baptist minister. The property and homestead were deeded to his daughter, who had married William Letcher Todd, upon Alexander's death in 1885.

After the death of Eliza in 1920, Madison County deed Book 95, pages 327-329, indicate that the homestead was deeded to one of her sons, Thomas A. Todd. Todd and his family made the property their home until 1928 and also acquired an additional, adjoining 79.66 acre farm known as the "Miracle Place".

In 1928 the farm was sold to Thomas Todd's brother, George Boatwright Todd, as recorded in Madison County deed Book 106, page 598. Todd apparently lived there until 1950 when the land was sold to Harold E. Richardson for $28,000. George as the last of the Boatwrights or their descendants to own the property.

On December 2, 1973, Richardson sold the farm to J.W. Ramsey for $102,000. During Ramsey's ownership, the old homestead went to ruin and the solid walnut logs were sold off. The only thing remaining is the main rock chimney.

1. See Ricker, "Boat(w)right's of Southeastern USA", p. 160. There were many claims of Cherokee Indian Heritage made to Dawes commission in 1890's based on belief that Elizabeth was descended from an Indian tribe. Many claims refer to "Polly Carter, daughter of James and Rhoda Blackburn and a half-sister of Elizabeth." Her name was said to appear on the Rolls of 1835 (and 1852) - East of the Mississippi River. ( See also Cherokee Citizenship Commissions Docket Books - Dockets #89, #90, and #180. wherein 'Elizabeth Blackburn' is shown as ancestor of persons granted citizenship.)

"...This writer has a photostat copy of what appears to have been a daguerreotype picture of Elizabeth Blackburn taken about 1860 with this notation on the back: "Elizabeth Blackburn born July 1, 1779 - Cumberland City, Virginia."

"In 1821, Elizabeth, a widow, went to Madison county, Kentucky taking with her all of the children with the exception of Martha Gill who was then married to James Kelley and James Blackburn who was also either married or soon to be married. His marriage is recorded as 17 Oct 1821. Elizabeth settled near Kirksville, Kentucky.

3. A law suit was brought against Elizabeth by William Blackburn of Virginia who was an administrator of James' Will claiming Elizabeth improperly removed portions of James' estate to Kentucky.

Boatwright Homestead Photo - late 1980's - Madison County, Kentucky Cemeteries mean many different things to different people. There was a time not too long ago in our American society that they were much more a part of our regular family activities. I have been told by many of the older generation of picnics fondly remembered in which large extended families would gather in the cemetery to celebrate one of the annual civil holidays or perhaps an important family anniversary.

In those days, especially in rural areas, the family cemeteries were likely to be often in the thoughts and affections of the living as they paused to remember and honor the memories of loved ones no longer present in person. These old cemeteries were an essential part of the old homestead once established since sickness and dying was always close by for the young as well as for the aged. Many a grieving mother was able to look from the porch to a not too distant hillside and have their thoughts drawn to the grave of a little child given up too early in life. Children's lives in turn, were often graced by thoughts of loving parents whose tired bodies "lay-a-molden" in their graves in these same parcels of sacred earth.

Such was the case at the old Boatwright homestead that served at least three generations of Boatwrights and Todds before the house was torn down and the old logs sold off. Elizabeth Blackburn Boatwright, a widow who left the grave of her husband behind in Virginia, would see one of her married daughters placed in an early grave at age 34 on the hill she could see from her kitchen window, and then the same year, a daughter-in-law who died at age 29, just one month after giving birth to Elizabeth's lovely granddaughter, whom the widow and her grieving son would be left to raise.

Boatwright Homestead Photo - late 1980's - Madison County, Kentucky By the time Elizabeth herself would be laid to rest in this cemetery in 1862, her brother James Blackburn III and his wife, Nancy, also would be buried nearby. They would not survive to see a few years later both Union and Confederate armies march along Paint Lick Creek and stop at the old Gum Springs, just down the hill from the cemetery. In 1881, another married daughter, Martha Gill Kelly, would be brought by loved ones to the family burial site, and then in 1885, Elizabeth's son Alexander Allen Boatwright would be laid beside his wife, Margaret Elizabeth Joplin Boatwright, and mother. His only child, Eliza Ann would- together with husband William Letcher Todd- raise her family nearby but they would move their burial plans to the Manse Cemetery in Old Paint Lick and begin a new family remembering-site there.

Another of Elizabeth Blackburn's brothers, William Blackburn, married Isabella Mitchell, the daughter of William and Elizabeth Mitchell, homesteaders across Paint Lick Creek at the old Mitchell place. Her mother, Elizabeth Leavell Mitchell, was the daughter of Isabella Miller, the first child born to William Miller and his wife at Fort Paint Lick in 1781. Both William Mitchell Senior and William Miller were born in the same year (1747) and in the same area of Virginia .These two generations of Mitchells were buried in their own family plot on the Mitchell farm along with several other relatives. Isabella's mother was buried there in 1863, the year following the death of Elizabeth Blackburn, her husband's sister, and her father died and was buried in the same cemetery in 1888.

In 1871, almost in a straight line up the branch that ran in front of the Mitchell place before emptying into Paint Lick Creek, the funeral for another of Elizabeth Blackburn's siblings was observed in yet a third family cemetery. Rhoda Ann Blackburn had married John Patterson,Jr, back in Virginia, and then raised quite a family of second generation Kentucky Pattersons on part of the Patterson homestead. Rhoda Ann herself had attended the graveside services of her brother and sister, James Blackburn III and Elizabeth Blackburn Boatwright (both died in 1862), as well as relatives in the two cemeteries nearby. But it would be the Patterson Cemetery that would turn out to be the largest of all and the one that now, all these generations later, would become the object of loving efforts from many grateful descendents to see it restored and cared for.

One personal story will serve to illustrate the place these cemeteries were able to hold in the minds and hearts of living family members even hundreds of miles away. My great-uncle, John Todd, was born and raised in the old Boatwright home. He married a third cousin who was orphaned at an early age and then raised by John's parents. Permelia Gates was the daughter of Agnes Patterson and James Gates, both buried in the Patterson cemetery. Agnes was the daughter of John Patterson Jr. and Rhoda Ann Blackburn, also buried in the same cemetery. John and Permelia's first two children died in infancy and are buried there. Later they moved their family to Afton , Oklahoma and raised a large extended family. Descendents tell how often Permelia would talk of the cemetery back in Garrard County, Kentucky where her little babies, her parents, and grandparents were all buried.

The Mitchell Cemetery no longer has any of the head stones "above" ground. The Boatwright Family Cemetery is smaller and tended to by a few of us who are direct descendents on behalf of most of the Boatwright clan that moved on west and southwest. This cemetery holds an added significance to this writer because my Grandmother Todd's parents, John and Miriam Hunt were among the last to be buried there in the early 1900's.

There is something very special about these old family plots and the lives that came to their earthly end there. God has often blessed our lives with their memories and the heritage He has passed on to us through each one. It is not only a joy to thankfully honor their memory when we have opportunity, but it gives us a perspective reaching back generations and reminds us that we are all standing on the shoulders of some pretty remarkable people. In these three cemeteries there are among others, a few Virginian families represented that contributed to our lives and the Paint Lick community- Blackburns, Boatwrights, Mitchells, and Pattersons.

Notes for JESSE BOATWRIGHT:

Not mentioned in father's will, so was probably deceased before 1814.

Notes for DANIEL BOATWRIGHT:

There has been some disagreement among researchers as to whether Daniel's name was "Daniel" or "David". It appears to be Daniel in the handwritten list previously referred to from Chesley Hood Boatwright's bible and is definitely Daniel in the handwritten copy of his father's will written in 1814.

Names and birth dates of James' children were taken from pages found in family Bible of Chesley Hood Boatright (b. 25 Nov 1797).

Information verified in 1907 interview between CS Cornelius and Daniel J. Boatwright.

                                                   d. 05 Feb 1875, Holmes County,

6-38. NANCY ANN BOATWRIGHT (JAMES7, BENONI6, JOHN5, JOHN4, JOHN3, ROBERT2, Not Yet Determined1) was born 05 Apr 1783 in Cumberland County, Virginia. She died Apr 1833. She married SKIP HARRIS STEGAR on 03 Dec 1805 in Cumberland County, Virginia.


Notes for NANCY ANN BOATWRIGHT:

She is referred to as "Ann Stegar" in her father's will and as "Ann called Nancy" in Chesley Hood Boatwright's Bible.

This is probably the "Anne Boatwright" found in the Cumberland County marriage records as marrying Skipp H. Stegar on December 3, 1805.


6-39. WILLIAM BENJAMIN BOATRIGHT (JAMES7, BENONI6, JOHN5, JOHN4, JOHN3, ROBERT2, Not Yet Determined1) was born 29 May 1784 in Cumberland County, Virginia, and died 08 Aug 1875 in Madison County, Arkansas. He married (1) JAMIMA BEAN BOWEN 22 Jul 1808 in Grainger County, Tennessee, daughter of JOHN BOWEN and SARAH BEAN. She was born Abt. 1790 in Tennessee, and died 10 May 1818 in Grainger County, Tennessee. He married (2) NANCY MORGAN 29 Apr 1821 in Grainger County, Tennessee. She was born 15 Feb 1804 in Tennessee, and died 11 Apr 1860 in Huntsville, Madison County, Arkansas.


Notes for WILLIAM BENJAMIN BOATRIGHT:

William Benjamin Boatwright

Various dates of birth have been found for William. We use the date shown, May 29, 1784, as this is the date found in his father's bible, as recorded by his youngest brother, Chesley Hood Boatright. A xerox copy of this recording is in my possession.

See link for copy of marriage license to Jamima Bean Bowen.

See link for copy of marriage record to Nancy Morgan.


The 1850 Madison County, Arkansas, census, from which the list of William's children by his second wife is taken, indicates that he was 63 years of age in 1850. This would make his birth year 1787 rather than 1784, but we regard his father's bible records as more accurate than the census.

It should also be noted that the 1850 census records his second wife's age as 41 in 1850. We show a date of birth for this wife, Nancy Morgan, as February 15, 1804, which would make her about 46 years of age when the census was taken rather than 41 as shown in the census records.

Unfortunately, the source for Nancy's date of birth was lost before it was recorded with these records, so we cannot positively verify her actual date of birth.

The 1850 census also records the fact that Elizabeth Waits, age 6; John Waits, age 4; and John Wells, age 19, were all living in William's household in 1850.

Buried at Huntsville, Madison County, Arkansas

Married by Samuel Yancey

1. Mentioned in father's Will.

2. It is possible that this is the same person referred to as "Old William Boatright", (see "Old William Boatright and His descendants", by Floy B. Chancey of Fort Smith Arkansas, 1996.) Although no definitive data is available, Mrs. Chancey proposes that "Old William Boatright" was one of the son's of James Boatwright (b. ca 1745) based on the closeness of the families of Chesley Hood, Samuel (b. 1771) and "Old William". There is a nagging difference in the birth dates of "Old William" (26 April 1777 ) and the date of James son, 29 May 1784. Ricker gives Birth date as ca. 1793, death ca. 1887.

3. Due to the apparent closeness of the families of "Old William" and Chesley Hood mentioned above, this individual is being cataloged as James' son until it is shown not to be true.

4. Excerpt from "Old William Boatright and His descendants" by Floy B. Chancey, Ft. Smith, AR. 1996:

William Benjamin and Nancy Morgan Boatwright Gravestone

There is WILLIAM BOATRIGHT, born 29 May 1784, the eleventh child of JAMES BOATRIGHT (b. ca. 1745) that could possibly be OLD WILLIAM; however, the difference in birth dates (1784 vs. 1777) seem to indicate that OLD WILLIAM was not the son of JAMES. [On the other hand] there is a possibility that OLD William did not know the actual date of his birth and used 26 Apr 1777 instead of 29 May 1784. The 1850 Census of Madison County, AR shows OLD William to be 63 years of age. That would mean his birth year would be 1887 (could be error by census taker). The 1860 Census of Madison Co., AR has OLD WILLIAM, age 83, living with C. H. BOATRIGHT (his son). That would mean his birth year would be 1777. In the 1870 Census of Madison county, OLD WILLIAM is listed as being 93 which would make his birth year 1777. No documents have been found at this time to prove OLD WILLIAM's birth date.

Another reason why OLD WILLIAM could be the son of JAMES is the fact that SAMUEL, b. 17 Apr 1771, and CHESLEY HOOD, b. 25 Nov 1797, both sons of JAMES, moved to Grainger Co., Tennessee and (were) living in the same area where OLD WILLIAM lived near Bean Station in 1808-1818.

OLD WILLIAM, SAMUEL and CHESLEY HOOD were married in Grainger County, Tennessee.

After OLD WILLIAM moved to Arkansas (ca. 1832) CHESLEY HOOD stayed in Tennessee moving to Anderson County where he remained until the 13th of October, 1849 when he moved his family to Arkansas and settled in Madison County near Huntsville where OLD WILLIAM was living. This would indicate that OLD WILLIAM, SAMUEL and CHESLEY HOOD were very close relatives, if not brothers. OLD WILLIAM named one of his sons after CHESLEY HOOD, another indication that the families were one and the same.

Notes from Dale R. Boatright: Contrary to speculation, William Boatright could write as evident in 1812 Pension correspondence. In addition to being blacksmiths, his sons John, James, William McLean, and Chesley Hood Boatright were JP's and Chesley Hood was at one time Madison County, Arkansas County Treasurer.

Our family records have William's middle initial as "B". Because the Arkansas relatives who originally recorded the family information lived around him during his lifetime, I am sure that it is "B" - Source: Mary Jester, great, great-granddaughter of William B. Boatright


War of 1812 Vet.

Around 1831, A wagon train from White and Grainger Counties of Tennessee went to the area that would become Madison County (Arkansas). Among those on this trip were the following:

She married ORSON MARTIN 04 Oct 1813 in Cumberland County, Virginia, son of JOHN MARTIN and ELIZABETH BOATWRIGHT. He was born 1789 in Cumberland County, Virginia.


Notes for JUDITH BOATWRIGHT:

I link Daniel to his parents, Orson Martin and Judith Boatwright via an 1860s case found in Cumberland County chancery records. It involves a claim against Orson’s estate. The case, in fact, links Daniel only to Orson. However, Judith is Orson’s wife according to marriage records as well as Virginia death records which combine to show Orson and Judith were married before and after Daniel’s birth.

The clearest proof that Orson and Daniel are father and son is on page 45 of the file as it appears in the online record. It is page 2 of an 1866 letter written by the plaintiff John F. Palmore to the judge. A paragraph beginning about halfway down the page reads:

“That in the year 18__ the said Orson Martin departed this life intestate leaving as his heirs at law & entitled to his estate four children. Daniel Martin. Frances N. the wife of Drewry W Boatwright.[illegible; but likely “Susan”] C. Martin & Aletha A. Bagby the wife of James M. Bagby. And the following children of Austin W. Martin [a.k.a. Orson] a deceased son. Phineas E. Martin. Virgil E. Martin. Mary E. Martin & Cadmus A. Martin – all of whom are infants under the age of twenty one years. And that administration on his Estate was granted to Madison Flanagan by the County Court of Cumberland.”

The Daily Dispatch: January 12, 1861, Richmond, Virginia:

On the 3d day of August, at Little Spring, Madison County, Arkansas, J. W. Bootwright, aged 65 years.


High atop a beautiful little hilltop in Madison County AR. sits what is now called the "Old" Boatright Cemetery. It rests on what used to be known as "Boatright Mountain" It is on private land, and is somewhat difficult to reach. It is in what is basicaly, pasture land for cattle and is unkept. (There are now plans, with gracious permission from the landowner, to put up a fence around this quiet little resting spot to protect it. (It has been partialy bulldozed at least once) It seems that it never had more than ten graves in it. Unfortunately, these are the only remaining stones which have names inscribed on them, they were carved by James Hughes Boatright, who used the "Bootright" spelling for a time.The stone for his son Wm. T., who died in 1885, has the "Bootright" spelling. James Hughes died in 1910, his stone reads Boatright. Source is Craig's page:

The following paragraph concerning Chesley Hood is taken from the "History of Northwest Arkansas", the chapter on Madison county, Page 1102. It is an excerpt of a biography which discusses Charles S. Keeney, his wife Mary Elizabeth Boatright, and Charles' family.

"The mother was a daughter of the Rev. Chesley Boatright, a minister of the Missionary Baptist Church. The Boatright [p.1102] family of America belonged to the King's body guard, and escaping settled in America prior to the Revolution, in which they took an active part. A number of the family also did honorable service in the War of 1812. The Rev. Chesley Boatright was a native of Virginia, and came to Madison County as a missionary of the Baptist Church when the country was but sparsely settled. He established the first Baptist Church in Northwest Arkansas, and was one of the best known men in the Cherokee Nation."

Chesley Hood Boatright was ordained a Baptist minister in 1833 at the Hebron Church, Knox County, Tennessee.

Buried in Boatright Cemetery, east of Buckeye, Madison County, Arkansas.


Will of Chesley Hood Boatright:

Last Will and Testament of C. H. Boatright, deceased. In the name of God, Amen. I, Chesley H.

Burnett, James John, Sketches of Tennessee’s Pioneer Baptist Preachers, (Marshall and Company, Nashville, 1919), pp 59-60.

Chesley Hood Boatwright was born in Cumberland County, Virginia, Heretofore I have spelled it “Boatwright” and sometimes “Bootright” (having the impression that someone of his early ancestors was a maker of “boots). But the people generally have spelled him Boatwright, and doubtless he is connected, historically, with the Boatwrights of Virginia. So I have changed the spelling. In his twentieth or twenty-fist year young Boatwright came to Grainger County, Tennessee, and married Louisa Taylor, a daughter of Elder Hughes Owens Taylor, one of the early settlers of the “new country of Grainger”. About the year 1825 he moved to Anderson County. In 1830 he was “licensed” to preach by Mt. Hebron Church in Knox County. The first Friday in November 1833, he was ordained by the authority of Bethel Church, Anderson County, which had just been constituted (March 29, 1833) of sixteen constituent members mostly from Mt. Hebron Church, and recognized by a “presbytery” consisting of Elders Joshua Frost, Issac Long, Noah Cate, and Samuel Love. Doubtless some or all of these men officiated in the ordination of the subject of this sketch. Elder Boatwright served Bethel Church as pastor from 1840-1845, and from 1848 to 1851. In the fall of 1831 he engaged himself to teach a school of several months near Coal Creek. About the same time he began a meeting in the neighborhood, preaching nights. Elder Joshua Frost and James Hickey joined him in the meeting, ably assisting in the work.

…” A revival broke out, Clear Branch Church (now Longfield) was the result. Boatwright became the first pastor and continued as pastor and moderator of the church till he moved to Arkansas in October of 1849, a period of about fifteen years. He died in Arkansas, but the date of his death, and the place of his burial are not known to the writer.” (W. L. Riggs)

In 1846 Clear Branch Church (C.H. Boatwright, pastor) was the largest church in the Northern Association, reporting a membership of 228. This association was formed in 1839; it came off the Powell’s Valley Community, on account of its opposition to the cause of benevolence. This new and vigorous interest entered at once into the business of domestic missions, employed Messrs. C.H. Boatwright, J. Aldridge, and William Hinckle to travel and preach among their feeble churches, and in destitute regions around them. In 1842 their missionaries reported as follows: “ Traveled upward of 3,000 miles, and baptized 300, save one.” (Benedict).


This exhausts my “notes”. It is a regrettable fact that so little definite information is obtainable in regard to a minister of so great prominence and of such ability and personal force as Chesley H. Boatwright seems to have had. He was active in the ministry for twenty years, before leaving the State and was widely known in several counties and associations. He was a strong man, and made an impression wherever he went. I have heard many of the old people of the country speak of him with profound respect, and incidentally, have noted his name in connection with the founding of churches and the ordination of ministers not a few.

On Friday, 1 November 1833, Chesley H. Boatright was ordained as a minister of the Bapist church, by the authority of Bethel Church in Anderson County, Tennessee (2).

About 11 o’clock on Saturday, 13 October 1849, Chesley and his family began their journey to the State of Arkansas (3). After settling in Madison County, he established the first Baptist Church in Nothwest Arkansas. * He also did some missionary work with the Indians of Oklahoma. Goodspeed (in History of Northwest Arkansas) states that Reverand Chesley H. Boatright was one of the best known men in the Cherokee Nation.

The book, Histroy of Arkansas Baptists, lists C.H. Boatright, Huntsville, under the heading - Missionary Baptist Preachers - 1855.

Their daughters, Cynthia Emily and Rachel Louisa, both died in 1840, aged 16 years and 12 years, respectively.

Their oldest daughter, Mary Elizabeth, married Calvin L. Keeney in 1842 in Anderson County, Tennessee (4). Their sons James Hughes and Harvey Woodson, also married in Tennessee.

At the time Chesley H. and Louisa Boatright moved to Arkansas, they had one son, Chesley Taylor, and five daughters left at home. Chesley Taylor was 15 years old at the time they moved to Arkansas, and he later returned to Tennessee (5). James Huges Boatright and his family moved to Arkansas in 1854, and Taylor made the trip with them on horseback, riding with the wagons.

Old Boatright Cemetery

High atop a beautiful little hilltop in Madison County AR. sits what is now called the "Old" Boatright Cemetery. It rests on what used to be known as "Boatright Mountain" It is on private land, and is somewhat difficult to reach. It is in what is basicaly, pasture land for cattle and is unkept. (There are now plans, with gracious permission from the landowner, to put up a fence around this quiet little resting spot to protect it. (It has been partialy bulldozed at least once) It seems that it never had more than ten graves in it. Unfortunately, these are the only remaining stones which have names inscribed on them, they were carved by James Hughes Boatright, who used the "Bootright" spelling for a time.The stone for his son Wm. T., who died in 1885, has the "Bootright" spelling. (See Boatright Cemetery) James Hughes died in 1910, his stone reads Boatright. Source is Craig's page:
