Notes for POWHATAN VALENTINE BOATRIGHT:

Powhatan Valentine Boatright was born in Amherst Co VA on 13 July 1790, the son of John Joseph Boatright and Frances Elizabeth Tinsley. He had little or no education as a child, for later in life he could not sign his name.

He served in the army during the War of 1812, with his service being in the year 1814. Later in life he received a pension based upon this service. By 1815, he was in Jessamine County, Kentucky, where he married Lucy Utley on December 23. She was the daughter of William Utley. The next year she published a newspaper ad indicating that he had abandoned her. She stated that she would not be responsible for his debts and warned other women to beware of him.

In 1816, Lucy "Boteright" advertised for her missing husband, Powhatan "Boteright", and later she again advertised that she would not be responsible for the debts of her missing husband. It is not known if Powhatan deserted her, or, if perhaps he had traveled west of the Mississippi River after his marriage, looking for a place to settle, and remained gone for longer than expected.

In any case, by 1818 Powhatan Boatright was living in what later became Lawrence County, AR, and his eldest child, John Boatright, was born there in that year. As a resident of Lawrence County, Powhatan was commissioned as an ensign in the Third Arkansas Militia on 10 July 1820. Shortly afterwards, he moved to Independence County, for he was commissioned as a First Lieutenant in the Seventh Regiment of Arkansas Militia on 21 September 1824. By 1826, he had moved to north Louisiana, settling in the area that became Claiborne Parish in 1828. He married Mrs. Nancy Eleanor Burke, a widow, there on 24 July 1826.

Powhatan Boatright bought government land in northern Ouachita Parish Louisiana on 3 November 1836, and over the next 20 years, he gradually bought adjoining tracts from the government. He had moved from Claiborne Parish to his new plantation by 1839. In that year Union Parish was created from Ouachita, and Powhatan's new farm was in central Union Parish, near the present-day community of Zion Hill.

Powhatan seems to have been quite a character. He came from Virginia to Arkansas and stayed there awhile including enlisting 21 Sep 1824, Commissioned as 1st Lt, Arkansas State Militia. 1830 he was in the Census for Claiborne, Louisiana, and on 14 Oct 1835 purchased land near Calhoun, Louisiana and on 3 NOV 1836 Purchased land at Zion Hill, Louisiana. August 1845, Powhatan Boatright was on a committee of members of the Zion Hill Baptist Church in Union Parish, Louisiana to select a sight for the construction of a new church building. This committee reported their choice in September 1845. The church and cemetery are located near Powhatan's farm. Powhatan Boatright had five sons to loose their lives in southern rebellion.

There is some uncertainty as to whether Powhatan was the son of John James and Elizabeth Boatwright, but both William E. Boatright and Norman Hurd Ricker support the fact that he was.

He enlisted in Captain Parke Bailey's company of the Virginia Militia on 02/28/1814 in Cumberland County. He transferred to Captain John Cole's company on 03/25/1814 and was discharged on 06/29/1814. He applied for and received a Pension on October 3, 1873. He was also commissioned a 1st Lt. in the 7th Regiment, Arkansas Militia on September 21, 1824.

In 1836 he owned 500 acres of land in Union Parish, Louisiana, near the Arkansas line. Records indicate that he was an elected Police Juryman (County Commissioner) in 1841 and was one of the men selected to pick a church site for the Zion Hill Baptist Church in 1845. In 1860 his real estate property was assessed at $2,700 and his personal property at $790.

He is buried at the Boatright Cemetery 9 miles north of Farmerville, Louisiana.

BOATRIGHT FAMILY CEMETERY:
Located 6 miles northwest of Farmerville on Odis Farrar place in Sec 4 Twp 21 Range 1W Survey 16 May 1976

This cemetery is located on the old homeplace of Powhatan Boat(w)right, a native of Virginia and veteran of the War of 1812. He arrived in north Louisiana about 1825, settling first in what is now Claiborne Parish. He settled in the Zion Hill community about 1835. This cemetery contains numerous unmarked graves, including those of Powhatan and his second wife Nancy Burk Boatright:

BOATRIGHT, Powatan 13 Jul 1790 - 21 Dec 1880

BOATRIGHT, Nancy Eleanor c1792 - 1870 - 1880

It is also likely that their son Linear Boatright (c1835 - 10 Sept 1862) was buried here when he died at home in Union Parish on a sick furlough from the Confederate army (Company H, 31st Louisiana Infantry). It is also likely that Powhatan and Nancy's youngest daughter Mary Boatright Mears (c1837 - 12 Feb 1879) was buried here after her premature death one year before her father's demise at the age of ninety.

Notes for LUCY UTLEY:

Lucy was one of twelve children. Her mother was already deceased at the time of her father's death and an older brother was named guardian of the younger children. Lucy spent some time in Amelia County, Virginia, before going to Jessamine County, Kentucky, to live with an older brother and his family. It was in Jessamine county where she married Powhatan.

It was only two months later, February 5, 1816, that she placed an ad in the Kentucky Gazette as "Lucy Botewright, late Lucy Utley of Virginia," regarding her "runaway husband, Powhattan Botewright." Source: Tim Hudson.

Lucy Utley did not die in 1823 as is often shown in family histories. After Powhatan left her, she moved to Henderson County, Kentucky where her brother Royal Utley and his family were living. Lucy took her maiden name back of Lucy Utley and 09 Feb 1823 in Henderson County, Kentucky, she married William Peacher. Source: Kirk Johnston.

Notes for CARY HARRISON BOATRIGHT:

Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Cooper County, Missouri

Cary was buried in the Boatright family cemetery, located on the just outside of Otterville, Cooper County, Missouri. The cemetery was originally part of a land parcel owned by Cary Harrison Boatright. In later years the cemetery became known as Pleasant Grove Cemetery. There is no marker in the cemetery for Cary Boatright.

The following was written by William E. Boatright in 1964 and published as a book, “The Boat(w)right and Allied Families”, with some corrections from Rick McNutt. Genealogical Society of Marion County, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Cary Harrison Boatright emigrated from Prince Edward County, Virginia to Kanawha County, Virginia probably about 1820 or 1821. Nothing is known about why he made this trip, or how, the first record so far available shows him there for his first marriage. There was a boat works at Kanawha Falls, and it may be that he went there to work. He apparently purchased some land at Beard’s Fork on Loup Creek which is now located in Fayette County, West Virginia. Mr. Charles Henry Settle (1859 – 1949) of Fayetteville, West Virginia in a letter to Laura Kincaid Blake of Kincaid said that Grandfather and Grandmother Boatright were early land owners on Loup Creek at Beard’s Fork.

In 1842 Cary Harrison purchased a bible which was published in 1839. Apparently from memory, which at times was faulty, he entered names and dates. Several dates prior to 1842 have been proven faulty; therefore, all dates before 1842 are suspect, especially when they do not correlate properly. Most of the dates given are taken from Cary Harrison’s bible.

Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Cooper County, Missouri

Cary Harrison was married 10 times. Actually he had only four children who lived to be married and begin families.

His first marriage was to Melinda Wheeler, entered in his Bible as Melindy Wheler. They were married on 13 December 1821 according to the Kanawha County records, or 13 December 1822 according to his Bible entry. They were married in Kanawha County, Virginia. Neither Melinda Wheeler’s parents nor her birth date are known.

Cary Harrison and Melinda had two children:

- Frances Boatright, born 5 January 1823 in Kanawha County, Virginia. She died 10 August 1824, also in Kanawha County, Virginia.

- A stillborn child, 20 August 1824.

Cary Harrison’s first wife, Melinda, apparently died at the birth of their stillborn child on 20 August 1824. (Note: In the span of 10 days, Cary lost his wife and two children)

Cary Harrison Boatright’s second marriage was to Margaret Jenkins, daughter of Isaac and Nancy Jenkins, who were large landowners at Loup Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia, on 3 May 1824 according to Kanawha County records but on 13 May 1824 according to Cary’s bible. (Note: second marriage date conflicts with death dates of first wife and children) It is believed that Cary and Margaret were the grandfather and grandmother Boatright at Beard’s Fork on Loup Creek that Charles Kerry Settle wrote about, for they were actually his grandparents.

It is not known when Margaret was born, but she died on 23 November 1828, probably at her parents home on Loup Creek (now Deepwater). She is buried at Deepwater, Fayette County, West Virginia in the Settle Family Cemetery on a high hill overlooking the Kanawha River.

Cary Harrison and Margaret had two children:

- Minerva Frances Boatright, born in January 1826 in Kanawha County, Virginia. She died 1 October 1915 at Deepwater, Fayette County, West Virginia, and is buried there in the Settle Family Cemetery. She married Francis Asbury Settle (1812 – 1893) at Loup Creek, on 2 September 1842, and they had seven children.

- Nancy Boatright, born in September 1827 and died in November or December 1827 at Loup Creek, or Beard’s Fork on Loup Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia. She is also buried in the Settle Family Cemetery.

After the death of his second wife, Margaret Jenkins, Cary Harrison Boatright apparently left Beard’s Fork and Loup Creek, and went on down the Kanawha River about 20 or 30 miles to Cabin Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia where he married his third wife, Harriet Starke, daughter of Colonel John Starke III (1777 – 1833) and Sallie Whiteside (1782 – 1852).

Cary Harrison and Harriet Starke were married 13 December 1828 at Cabin Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia). Harriet was born 30 December 1812 probably at Cabin Creek. She died 13 May 1832 also probably at Cabin Creek, although this is not known for certain.

Cary Harrison and Harriet had two children:

- Dorcas Boatright, born 12 May 1829 at Cabin Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia. She died 11 February 1834 probably also at Cabin Creek.

- Charles Franklin Boatright, born 26 June 1831 according to his Bible and gravestone, or in December 1831 according to Cary Harrison’s Bible, at Cabin Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia). Charles Franklin was married twice; first to Susan M. Butler (1831 – 1854); second time to Susan’s sister Sarah Frances Butler (1834 – 1899). Charles Franklin and Susan had one child, and he and Sarah Frances had seven children.

It is interesting to note that Cary Harrison had probably become acquainted with Harriet Starke through her father sometime prior to their marriage. Colonel John Starke III was the District Commissioner, also a “Gentleman Justice” of Kanawha County at that time, and records show that Cary Harrison paid personal property taxes to him as follows:

- In 1822 for one horse, 13 ½ cents
- In 1823 for one horse, 12 cents
- In 1824 for one slave and one horse, 47 cents
- In 1825 nothing
- In 1826 for two horses, 24 cents
- In 1827 for one horse, 12 cents
- In 1828 nothing
- In 1829 for one horse, 10 cents

There is no record of him paying personal property taxes in 1830, 1831 or 1832 in Kanawha County.

After the death of Harriet in 1832, Cary Harrison apparently decided to start traveling again, and must have gone down the Kanawha River to the Ohio River, then down the Ohio River perhaps to either Cincinnati or Louisville and then overland to Indianapolis, Indiana where we next find him. Or perhaps he visited his brother Powhatan Boatright on the way. Powhatan married Lucy Utley in Jessamine County, Kentucky in 1815, and Cary Harrison may have known where he was. It would be interesting to have an account of this trip.

Cary Harrison Boatright’s fourth marriage was to Dorcas Pugh on 17 May 1834 (this date is from the Marion County, Indiana records versus an incorrect Bible date) at Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. Dorcas was born 10 Jan 1812 in North Carolina, daughter of JACOB PUGH and DORCAS GLASGOW. They had a stillborn child in December 1834, and it is believed that Dorcas died at this time.

Cary Harrison Boatright’s fifth marriage was to Sarah Cule (may have been Cool), daughter of William Cule, on 06 Nov 1836 at or near Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. Sarah was born 1814 in Pennsylvania, daughter of WILLIAM CULE and POLLY. She died at or near Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana in 1883, and is buried in the old Greenlawn Cemetery in Indianapolis. Sarah and Cary Harrison were divorced during the spring term of court in 1836 according to his Bible (must have been in 1837 as they were not married until November 1836) – this being his first divorce. Note that the 1860,-70,-80 Census' still shows Sarah listed as "Boatright" although her 1850 census shows Sarah Call (Cule). Cary and Sarah had two children:

- Mary Boatright, who was born Abt. 1836, exact date unknown, and who died 01 Apr 1847.

- William Boatright, born in September 1836 according to Cary’s Bible, or on 16 Sept 1837 according to his descendents. William was born in Wayne Township, Marion County, Indiana; he died in 1911 at Indianapolis, and is buried at Crown Hill Cemetery there. William Boatright married Eliza Jane Roberson (1840 – 1881), daughter of Charles Roberson and Mary Ann Johnson, on 9 November 1865, probably at or near Indianapolis, Indiana. Eliza Jane Roberson was born in 1840 and died in 1881, both events taking place in Marion County, Indiana. She also is buried in Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis. William Boatright and Eliza Jane had seven children and began another branch of the Boatright family.

Cary Harrison Boatright’s sixth marriage was to Mary Hinsley in 09 Sep 1837, probably at or near Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. Nothing is known about Mary Hinsley’s parents, birth date, etc. She died Abt. 1847, exact date unknown.

Cary Harrison and Mary had five children:

- Stofan A. Boatright, as it was entered in Cary’s Bible, Stoughten Auphen Boatright as he himself wrote it all his life, was born 28 April 1838 probably at or near Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. He died at Lewis Station, Henry County, Missouri date unknown. Stoughten married Margaret Jane (maiden last name unknown), and they had one child, Mary Ellen Boatright.

- Cary Harrison Boatright Jr., born 15 July 1841, died 22 October 1841, both probably at or near Indianapolis, Indiana.

- A stillborn male on 11 May 1843, probably at or near Indianapolis, Indiana.

- Stillborn twin girls on 7 June 1844, also probably at or near Indianapolis, Indiana.

- Mary Frances Boatright, born 1 June 1845, died in 1846, probably at or near Indianapolis, Indiana.

Cary Harrison Boatright’s seventh marriage was to Elizabeth McNitt in 27 May 1847, probably at or near Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. Nothing is known about Elizabeth McNitt’s parents, birth date, death date, etc. Cary Harrison and Elizabeth were divorced in June 1848 in Marion County, Indiana.

Cary Harrison Boatright’s eighth marriage was to Margaret Thornton on 22 November 1848, in Marion County, Indiana. Nothing is known about Margaret Thornton, her parents, birth date, etc. Cary Harrison and Margaret were divorced in June of 1851 in Marion County, Indiana. They had no children.

Cary Harrison Boatright’s ninth marriage was to Lusindy Harmon on 31 July 1853 in Marion County, Indiana. Nothing is known about Lusindy, her parents, birth date, etc. They were divorced in 1855, Marion County, Indiana. They had no children.

Cary Harrison Boatright’s tenth marriage was to Elsey Boles on 29 January 1860, location unknown, although it is believed this probably took place somewhere in Missouri. Nothing is known about Elsey Boles, her parents, birth date, etc. Insofar as is known they were not divorced and she may have been with him when he died in Otterville, Cooper County, Missouri on 18 March 1870.

Cary Harrison’s Bible, as of February 1965 is in the possession of the compiler (William E. Boatright) at Cabool, Missouri.

Of interest is the inscription on the fly leaf of the Bible, written in Cary Harrison’s handwriting”

“Cary H. Boatright Bible bought April 6, 1842. Quit the use of spiritual liquor 22 February 1842. Joined the Washingtonian Society 28th of February, same instant.”

“C.H. Boatright joining the Sons of Temperance in 1847, soon withdrew from that Society because they did not live according to their profession, after a while beginning to become intemperate.”

“Quit the use of spirits of liquor the 2nd time on the 22nd of February 1852 as a beverage or as a social drink.”

C. H. Boatright
