Notes for LANIER "LEWIS" BOATRIGHT:

Lanier Lewis Boatright

According to his enlistment papers, he entered the Confederate Army at Monroe, Louisiana, on May 14th, 1862. It is believed that he served as a Private with Co. H, 31st Louisiana Infantry, C.S.A., with his brother James, but this is not confirmed.

Died while home sick on furlough.

First name spelled as "Lanier" by some researchers, but it is clearly spelled Linier, in his own handwriting, on his enlistment papers for the Confederate Army.

His enlistment papers for the Confederate Army describe him as 6'1", dark hair, blue eyes, and light complexion.


Both Lanier and Martha died young and Powhatan raised their 3 children. The 1880 census shows Powhatan, his granddaughter Mary Francis and her husband Marion Francis Moss at the residence. Source: Sandy Thompson, great granddaughter of Mary Francis Boatright.

Notes for ELIZABETH F. BOATRIGHT:

Elizabeth F. Boatright Davis

I have a copy of a Richmond (Va) Times Dispatch obituary that my grandmother Bertie Evelyn Acord Goode gave to me recording the death of her great grandmother Elizabeth F. Davis who died when Bertie was 17. The date has been cut off but someone has written “November 29, 1912” at the top. It states that Elizabeth died in Powhatan, was the widow of W.T. Davis, and the mother of my grandmother’s grandmother “Mrs. Anna Goode” (Anna Pryor Davis Goode). It also lists as the decedent’s two surviving brothers “John Boatwright of Goochland and W.B. Boatwright of Powhatan, the latter being the youngest of the family and he in is eighties.” Source: Susan G. Clark


OBIT: Richmond Times-Dispatch, Thursday, December 5, 1912

Powhatan, Virginia December 4 - The funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth F. Davis, widow of W. T. Davis, who died at her home here on Friday (November 29, 1912), took place from Red Lane Baptist Church. Rev J. W. Reynolds officiating. W. E. Maxey, T. J. Clements, C. M. Farriss, John Uebele, J. T. Crump, and H. J. Hansen acted as pall bearers.

Mrs. Davis was the oldest citizen in Powhatan County. She was born in 1815 and had been in good health and very active until about six weeks ago, when she fell in the yard and injured herself, from which she never entirely recovered and a general breakdown followed. Mrs. Davis was noted for her active memory, which served her until about twelve hours before the end came. Often she rendered valuable information to those in search of family records.

She leaves five children. Mrs. F. L. Goode of South Richmond, Mrs. Bettie Wood of Richmond; Mrs. Anna Goode, W. R. Davis, and L. O. Davis of Powhatan; twenty four grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren. Two brothers, John Boatwright of Goochland and W. B. Boatwright of Powhatan. The latter being the youngest of the family and he in his eighties.

Notes for CHARLES FRANKLIN BOATRIGHT:

Charles Franklin Boatright

The following was written by William E. Boatright in 1964 and published as a book, “The Boat(w)right and Allied Families”.

Charles Franklin Boatright, son of Cary Harrison Boatright (1800 – 1870) and Harriet Starke (1812 – 1832), was born 26 June 1831 according to his Bible and his gravestone, or in December 1831 according to his father’s Bible. He was born at Cabin Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia). He probably was born in or near Colonel John Starke III’s home, his grandfather, whose home was on the south bank of the Kanawha River, about 15 miles east of Charleston, Virginia (now West Virginia). Charles Franklin Boatright died on 30 December 1901 at Sedalia, Pettis County, Missouri and is buried in Lot 40, Block 34, Crown Hill Cemetery at Sedalia.

When Charles Franklin’s mother died in 1832, and his father left to go west, also probably in 1832, Charles Franklin remained with his grandparents at Cabin Creek, Virginia.

Colonel John Starke died in 1833, and in 1840 (at the age of nine) Charles Franklin traveled with either his uncle Milton or his uncle Dryden Starke and his grandmother Sallie Whiteside Starke from Cabin Creek to Otterville (then known as Elkton), Cooper County, Missouri. On the way out to Missouri they visited his father, Cary Harrison Boatright, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Charles Franklin Boatright Gravestone It is not known what route they took in making the trip, but undoubtedly the first part of it was down the Kanawha River to the Ohio River, then down the Ohio to either Cincinnati, Ohio or Louisville, Kentucky then overland to Indianapolis, and on to Otterville.

From the time they arrived in Elkton (or Otterville), Charles Franklin made his home with his Uncle Milton or Uncle Dryden Starke until sometime in 1850. In January of 1850 he was living in Otterville, then in May of 1850 he was living in Boonville, Cooper County, Missouri. The 1850 census of Cooper County shows him in Boonville, shows him as a carpenter, living in the home of D. P. Tolley who was also a carpenter.

Of interest is a letter written by Charles Franklin to his half-sister Minerva Frances Boatright Settle who was living in Loup Creek, Kanawha County, Virginia at the time. This and the other two letters quoted later, were found by Charles Franklin’s great grandson, William E. Boatright, during a trip to Pratt, West

Crown Hill Cemetery Markers Virginia in 1964. The letter was addressed to “Mrs. Manervia Woodrem, Paint Creek PO, Kanawha County, Virginia, then forwarded to Minerva Frances at Loop Creek. It is interesting to note that the sender of a letter at that time did not pay the postage, it was paid by the receiver, 10 cents in each case. The reads as follows:

“Dear Ever Remembered Sister,

I now for the first time take my pen in hand to try to inform you where and how I am. I am well at this time and I truly hope that when this comes to your hand it will find you and all of your family enjoying the same blessings. I have not heard from you only that you was married since I left Kanawha County, but I hope that I will next spring before I leave here.

I am going to start to California sometime next spring, and I want to hear from you before I start. Creed and Dryden are there now making a fortune as fast as they can, and there is one there for me also if I will just go after it.

I have been in Tennessee all last year and as soon as I get back from California I am coming to Kanawha to see you all. I am living at this time in Cooper County, Missouri and I want you to write to me just as soon as you get this and let me know how you all are. Direct your letter to Charles F. Boatright, Otterville, Cooper County, Missouri. You may look for letters next year from me from California. Write to me where to direct them to.

I must come to a close so give my love to all enquiring friends and accept the same. Your only Brother Affectionally,

Charles F. Boatwright - Adieu”


It will be noted that Charles Franklin never did get to California, perhaps Creed and Dryden were not making as big a fortune as he thought.

His statement about being in Tennessee all last year opens up interesting possibilities – was he there visiting relatives, was he there working, what was he doing in Tennessee? We may find out some day.

It is also interesting to note that he signed his name using the “w”. He used the “w” in his name most of his life, although he seems to have dropped it along towards the last.

In his letter he also ignores the fact that that both he and Minerva had two other half-brothers at the time he wrote the letter, William and Stoughten Auphen Boatright of Indianapolis, by saying “your only brother”. He may not have known about William, but he had seen Stoughten Auphen at Indianapolis when he was on the way out to Missouri.

Sometime later Charles Franklin found out that he had mis-addressed his letter so he wrote again, this time addressing the letter to Miss Manervia Boatwright, Paint Creek PO, Kanawha County, Virginia:

“Boonville, Cooper County, Mo. May 5th 1850

Dear Sister,

I wrote a letter to you and directed it to Mrs. Woodrum as I was informed that you married a gentleman by that name, but I have been informed since that it was not the name of the gentleman that you married, so I write this and direct it to Miss Manervia Boatwright.

I am well at this time and I truly hope that this may find you enjoying the same blessings. I received a letter from father yesterday stating that they were all well.

I was about to start to California this spring but as misfortune would have it I could not get off. Sister I have been unfortunate, I have lost all my part of the Estate that was left to me, so I have to work for a living.

I want to come to see you just as soon as I can. I want you to write to me just as soon as you get this, and let me know how you all are. Direct your letter to Charles F. Boatwright, Boonville, Cooper County, Missouri.

You must not think that I have forgotten you for I can remember well when you used to come down to Grandmothers to see me. Give my respects to your Husband.

I have nothing more at present to write to you, but remain your affectionate Brother until Death.

Charles F. Boatwright, Adieu”


It will be noted that both of Charles Franklin’s letters were addressed to “Manervia”. This is the same way her birth was entered in her father’s Bible, but she used the name “Minerva” during her life.

Charles Franklin Boatright was married twice, first to Susan M. Butler, daughter of David S. Butler (1795 – 1848) and Frances Jane Dugar (1804 – 1846). Charles Franklin and Susan M. were married at the residence of Judge W. R. Butler, believed to be an uncle of Susan’s, by Judge Butler on 28 July 1851 in Otterville, Missouri.

Susan M. Butler was born on 11 October 1831, and her sister Sarah Frances Butler was born 22 April 1834, both events taking place at Richmond, Henrico County, Virginia. Their parents brought them to Cape Girardeau, Missouri in 1846. It was believed that their father also died at Cape Girardeau in 1848, but the 1876 plat of Otterville shows a D. S. Butler as owning land there. Apparently David S. Butler, after the death of his wife at Cape Girardeau, moved to Otterville, bought land there, then died in 1848. It is known that the sisters were orphans in 1851, and were probably living with their uncle, Judge W. R. Butler at Otterville, and that Charles Franklin Boatright met them there.

Charles Franklin and Susan M. had one daughter, Frances Ann Boatright, born on 3 March 1854 at Otterville, Missouri. Shortly after the birth of Frances Ann, her mother Susan M., died on 7 April 1854. She is buried in the old Boatright Family Cemetery at Otterville, which in 1960 was located on the farm of Lt. Col. William H. McKnight, USAF- Ret., near the site of Elkton, the original name of Otterville.

Shortly after Susan M. Butler Boatright died, her daughter Frances Ann’s name was changed to Susan M., probably as a memorial to her mother. Susan M. Boatright married James V. Bryan and they had several children of whom no trace has yet been found. Susan M. Boatright Bryan died in 1901, probably at Kansas City, Missouri and is buried in lot 40, block 34, Crown Hill Cemetery, in Sedalia, Pettis County, Missouri.

Charles Franklin Boatright’s second marriage was to Sarah Frances Butler, daughter of David S. Butler and Frances Jane Dugar and sister of his first wife. (tradition has it that Sarah came from Richmond, Virginia to Elkton, Missouri about 1854 to visit and assist her sister Susan during Susan’s pregnancy. Susan died shortly after childbirth, and Sarah and Susan’s widowed husband were married a few months later). Charles Franklin and Sarah Frances were married on 27 September 1854 at Otterville, Cooper County, Missouri.

An 1876 plat of Otterville shows a Boatright Addition of nine square blocks, bounded on the east by Washington Street, on the north by Sycamore Street, and on the west by Morgan Street. This addition probably was started by Charles Franklin Boatright, as there were no other Boatrights there except Cary Harrison Boatright and Stoughten Auphen Boatright, and they were there only a very short time. It was still called Boatright Addition in 1960 when William E. Boatright and his wife were there. Charles Franklin’s store was on the northwest corner of Grover and Vine Streets. In 1960 the old building had been torn down, and the Otterville Bank occupied the site.

The citizens of Otterville, at one time, believed that the Pacific railroad would establish a division point and general shops at Otterville, and that the town would thereby become an important city. However, the citizens of Sedalia, about 13 miles west of Otterville, outbid Otterville, and the Pacific railroad established Sedalia as the division point, and built its general shops there which at that time was built at an expense of a million and a half dollars, and employed over two thousand employees. As a result, Otterville to this day, has remained a small town.

Charles Franklin undoubtedly was one of the citizens of Otterville who anticipated that Otterville would become a division point, and have the Pacific railroad shops located there; however, about 1875, he bowed to the inevitable and moved to Sedalia, establishing his business again at 1022 east 3rd Street, on the corner of Third and Summit Streets. He carried a complete stock of dry goods, hardware, shoes, some clothing, and a large stock of tinware, and other articles found in a “Racket Store” of those days.

He had a slogan for his store which, in the modern slang of the time, was “Here is Where Tony Hid the Wedge”. The secret of what he meant by the slogan died with him, but it is believed that being a rank Prohibitionist, and very temperate, he got the idea from “The New Voice”, a Prohibition paper that he loved.

According to Ethel May Boatright Reed, granddaughter of Charles Franklin, in an interview by William E. Boatright at Rockford, Illinois in September 1964, Charles Franklin and his wife Sarah Frances were Presbyterians, and when it was decided that a new church would be built in Sedalia, Charles Franklin gave the church a lot to build the church on; however, the members of the church did not like the location, in Ethel’s words” “It wasn’t quite in the society corner enough”, and so a more expensive lot was bought, and Charles Franklin was “peeved” (the Boatright “uneven” temper!), and began going to the Methodist Church, while Sarah Frances remained with the Presbyterian Church.

Charles Franklin made trips to New York and St. Louis to buy goods for his store. In St. Louis he bought primarily from the C. B. Rome Wholesale House. Once, when Charles Franklin was going to New York, his son Erasmus Franklin accompanied him to the railroad station in Sedalia, and just before the train left, said: “Pa, be careful that you don’t get on the wrong train.” Charles Franklin replied, “Now Razie, don’t try to learn your Granny how to milk ducks.” Sometime later Erasmus had a letter from his dad, he had gotten on the wrong train and was somewhere down in Tennessee.

Sarah Frances Butler Boatright, wife of Charles Franklin, after a fruitful life, died on 3 July 1899 at Sedalia, Pettis County, Missouri, and was buried in lot 40, block 34, of the Crown Hill Cemetery at Sedalia.

In December of 1900 Charles Franklin wrote to his half sister Minerva Frances Boatright Settle at Deepwater, West Virginia again:

“Sedalia, Mo. Dec 4th, 1900

My Dear Sister and Family,

I wrote you a few lines on my arrival home, and promised more soon, so I will try to write you a few words again. I have been quite poorly ever since I left you all and had begun about last few days to fear a spell of fever. But this morning I am, I think, feeling better.

Razie my son I left with the store, had to go to work he had promised as soon as I got back, so that left me obliged to go in the store at once, which made it worse on me. I hope though now with care to get all right soon.

Susan Bryan has been quite bad, I haven’t seen her since Sunday (day before yesterday) though I indirectly heard yesterday that she was feeling better.

The weather today is very cold, cloudy and gloomy and will snow soon and I shall try to keep pretty close until I know I am out of this spell.

Oh how I think and ever dream about our enjoyment during my stay with you all, that warm attachment I found for you all would be hard to break, I shall while I live remember it as one of the most delightful periods of my life.

Minnie is still at her job, but talks of quitting and she will be compelled to when weather gets bad, in fact she has already notified them to get one in her place. The old English lady, our housekeeper, is getting so cranky too, that we can’t bear it much longer.

My business is getting very slack, and since the election, everything begins to droop and get very dull, railroads, shops and all are laying off the men – every direction I guess aiming to get back some of the much they spent getting McKinley back into the White House. But it’s no more than I expected, but it was not my fight, the Democrats would have made it no better, and keep up the “Rumbill.”

Well I can’t write more now, but will more soon. Tell them all howdie for me. Hope you are all well and getting along nicely. May God’s Blessing rest with you all, from your affectionate Brother and Uncle,

C. J. Boatwright”


From the History of Pettis County, Missouri - 1882:

Charles F. Boatright; Merchant, East Third Street. Mr. Boatright was born in 1831, June 26, in West Virginia. His father, Cary Harrison, was a native of East Virginia. His mother was a native of West Virginia. Charles F., the subject of this sketch, was raised by his grandmother, Stark, and came to Cooper County, Missouri, in 1840. In his early life he learned the carpenter's trade, which, together from cabinet-making, he followed for a number of years. In 1862 he engaged in the merchanile business in Otterville, Missouri, which he continued until 1875, when he came to Sedalia, where he has ever since been in the same line of business. Mr. Boatright and his wife are members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, of which he has been an active member, being the foremost one in the building of their church here. His first wife died in 1864, leaving one child. By his second wife he has four children, two sons and two daughters.

His Bible gives date of birth as 06/26/1831. His father's Bible gives Charles' date of birth as 12/1831.

The information below concerning the children of Charles and Sarah was taken from "Notes on the Boat(w)right Family of the Southeastern United States" by Norman Hurd Ricker, Jr.

When his mother died in 1832 and his father left to go West, he resided with his Grandparents, COL. John Starke III (1777-1833) and Sallie Whiteside.

When his Grandfather died, his Grandmother, her sons Milton and Dryden Starke and grandson Charles Franklin Boatright migrated to Otterville (then Elkton), Cooper County, Missouri.

The 11th Indiana Infantry Regiment was organized at Indianapolis on April 25, 1861, for a three month term of service, then reorganized and mustered-in for the three years' service on August 31, 1861, with Col. Lewis Wallace as its commander.

In the early days of the war many regiments assumed identities to distinguish them from others being organized. The 11th was recognized as a Zouave regiment similar to famous regiments of the same name that fought in the French armies. Zouaves wore distinctly colorful uniforms that clearly set them apart from their counterparts.

At the war's start, Lew Wallace was appointed by Governor Oliver P. Morton as the Adjutant General of Indiana. The son of a former Indiana governor, Wallace was a gifted Hoosier. He was a lawyer, veteran and statesman. All of this long before he would be known as the author of Ben Hur. He resigned his post to command the 11th Indiana Infantry Regiment that was one of the first six regiments raised by the state for the war.

Notes for MILAN PRYOR BOATWRIGHT:

A deposition made by Easter Ann Keeling stating her husbands name as Milan Pryor Boatwright. The son has a spelling of Milam but the deposition states they were the same. Most trees online have Minor Prior. The deposition comes from the Widow Pension file (very extensive). It still did not clear up the actual father issue for Milan Pryor Boatwright which I continue to work to prove that it is Benjamin and Naomi Brockman - Source: Gary Shanklin.

He died early, naming L.H. Wolf as guardian of family in Todd County, Kentucky

Records of 1881 indicate his wife Easter lived in the household of their son, David.

This Regiment was organized by Colonel James S. Martin, under call of the President, in June 1862, and was mustered into the service of the United States at Salem, September 18, 1862. The strength of the Regiment at date of muster was 886, officers and enlisted men. Six of the companies comprising this Regiment were raised in Marion county, on in Clay, one in Washington, one in Clinton, and one company composed of men from Wayne and Marion counties, thus making the Regiment a home organization.

By special order No. 211, August 16, 1862, Salem was designated as the place of rendezvous; said order also gave the Regiment its numerical designation. Our camp at Salem was given the name of Camp Marshall, in honor of B. F.
