Notes for JAMES ALBERT BOATRIGHT:

James A. Boatright was a blacksmith by trade. In the Spring of 1893, after marrying Lizzie Scaff, they moved to Oklahoma and homesteaded 160 acres of land. Three children, one son and two daughters were born to them during this time.

Leaving Oklahoma, the family moved to the Center Point, Texas, area for three years. While there, they became involved with a group of other people who formed a colony and moved to Tampico, Mexico, to grow oranges. Unfortunately, they never could obtain clear title to the land and moved back to Oklahoma, near Arapaho, a year later.

James Albert died July 10, 1910. One story, unconfirmed, is that he was killed while trying to escape from a burning building. - Source: David C. Rains

Notes from Carol Newland, grandaughter of Jesse Boatright. - Source: David C. Rains

November 1996
"My Grandfather was very loving until he contracted tuberculosis. Grandma had to clean everything so much of the time for fear we would get the disease. Grandpa was out on the porch most of the time but I could not get near him."

March 1997
"Grandpa used to send me to the corner store to buy him some R-J-R Tobacco. (Run Johnny Run) When I would return from the store, he'd take out his coin purse and say to me, "Here, take a penny." As soon as I would stick my fingers in the coin purse... he would pinch my fingers."

Jesse Lowery and Bertha Disney Boatright Gravestone "When Aunt Jessie and I went to Wagoner, to visit the old home... The Barn that my grandfather used for his Livery Stable still had the name "Boatright" on it."

"My grandfather raised cotton for a living also."


After the death of his wife, Jesse went to live with his youngest daughter, Jessie Mitchell.

Jesse enjoyed telling his children and grandchildren the story of "The Little Red Hen". Lydia, his daughter, retold her Grandchildren the same story and included the remark about her father, Jesse...always telling her about "The Little Red Hen".

Notes from grandaughter, Carol Newland. Nov. 1996 - Source: David C. Rains

"I was very close to my Grandmother. I knew, without a doubt, that she loved me with her whole heart! I lived with my Grandparents, my mother and Aunt Jessie in my early years. The death of my Grandmother was a SHOCK to me. It really affected me. She died of a heart attack with no advance warning. My grandfather died shortly after Grandma did. She worked so hard to take care of him and keep things clean. The house smelled of Lysol. He could have died from severe grief or because her special gift of care giving was what allowed him to live as long as he did with the tuberculous."

"My Grandma had a huge feather bed. I used to love to go over the her house and jump on it!"


Notes from grandaughter, Carol Newland, March 1997 - Source: David C. Rains

"My Grandmother always had a glass bowl on a pedestal. It ALWAYS had cake or a bowl of fruit. When she had cake, I would always sneak a taste of the frosting."

"When I was 8 years old, I had the chicken pox. For my 8th birthday party, Grandma gave me a wonderful party. Everyone at the party already had the chicken pox. Most of the Wyatt Children were there because they all had already had the chicken pox. One of the crazy, fun games that Grandma had for my birthday party was one where we would sit in two chairs that had been covered with a sheet. We would cackle like a chicken and there would be an egg. It was so funny. We had a blast! I will never forget how much fun I had.


Date of birth is different than tombstone: November 19, 1887 on Death Certificate and November 18, 1887 on Tombstone.

Bertha favored the Boyd side of the family rather than the Disney.

There is some indication that Bertha's last name might have been Briggs. Her father's first name is purported to have been Disney; therefore, her actual name may be Bertha Disney Briggs. Her tombstone reads "Bertha D. Boatright." - Source: David C. Rains

James applied for enrollment as citizen of Cherokee Nation based on the fact that his wife, Ella Winton, was 1/2 Cherokee. Her mother, Martha, was Cherokee. The application was rejected because the provision allowing Indian citizenship by intermarriage expired 16 Dec. 1895. He married 1 Jan 1896. A digital image of application is available on-line.

Notes for JAMES ALBERT BOATRIGHT:

James Albert Boatright and brother William Nelson Boatright

James Albert Boatright (left) and brother William Nelson Boatright (right).

James A. Boatright was a blacksmith by trade. In the Spring of 1893, after marrying Lizzie Scaff, they moved to Oklahoma and homesteaded 160 acres of land. Three children, one son and two daughters were born to them during this time.

Leaving Oklahoma, the family moved to the Center Point, Texas, area for three years. While there, they became involved with a group of other people who formed a colony and moved to Tampico, Mexico, to grow oranges. Unfortunately, they never could obtain clear title to the land and moved back to Oklahoma, near Arapaho, a year later.

James Albert died July 10, 1910. One story, unconfirmed, is that he was killed while trying to escape from a burning building. - Source: David C. Rains

Notes for FRANKLIN BOWDEN BOATRIGHT:

Franklin Bowden Boatright and family

In October, 1997, in a letter to her grandson, David Cary Rains, Verna Rowena Boatright Milstead writes, "Franklin Bowden Boatright, the second son of Francis Alexander Boatright and Elizabeth Ann Frances Dannells (sometimes spelled Daniels) married Alta Crawford........March 10, 1895, in Crawford County, (Van Buren), Arkansas. The first three years of their married life were spent on a farm near Oak Grove, east of Van Buren. They left the farm and moved to Van Buren where, in 1901, he was employed by the Iron Mountain Railway Co., first as a fireman, then as a locomotive engineer. (The Iron Mountain later became the Missouri Pacific) He worked for the Missouri Pacific until 1930 when he retired on disability as a result of a stroke. He died on October 25, 1935, at the age of 61.

Franklin Bowden and Alta Crawford Boatright Gravestone Before my father's stroke, he was very interested and active in the Masonic order and was a member of the Van Buren Blue Lodge No. 6, Western Arkansas Consistory(Scottish Rite), deMolay, and the Royal Arch. I think it is interesting that my grandfather (Francis Alexander Boatright), my father (Franklin Bowden Boatright), my husband (James Gilispie Milstead), and my son-in-law (David Cleveland Rains) were all members of the Van Buren Masonic Lodge. My grandfather's membership certificate is dated 1877. I have the original certificate and a copy is in my history album.

Personally, my father was a very kind, soft-spoken, mild mannered man. He had no hobbies-- lived a very simple life--devoted to his family." - Source: David C. Rains

Joseph Edward Boatright

"HISTORY IF NORTHWEST MISSOURI 1901"
(Hand written notes: Edited by Walter Welliams 1914 3 vols.. this is Vol.. II)

J.E. Boatright. One of the oldest homesteads in Nodaway Township of Andrew County is the Boatright farm, in section 36, which has been under cultivation and improvement for more than half a century, and its present proprietor, J.E. Boatright, was born there more than half a century ago. He is a farmer and stock raiser, a thorough business man, and is the father of a large family of children.

J.E. Boatright was born on his present farm September 10, 1863, a son of Joseph and Sarah (Davidson) Boatright. His father, who was a native of Gentry County, Missouri, enlisted in the Confederate army at the beginning of the war and was killed in service. This son is the only child. The mother was born in Tennessee, was brought to Andrew County by her parents when she was a child, and lived on the old farm until her death in december, 1900, at the age of sixtythree. J.E.Boatright grew up on the homestead farm, gained his education in the country schools, and has been a practical farmer and manager of the resources of the soil since boyhood. His farm comprises 150 acres of good land in Nodaway Township, and in 1911 he improved it with a handsome modern home of ten rooms. He also rents another farm, and the chief feature of his business is the raising of cattle and hogs.

Notes for WILLIAM LOUIS BOATRIGHT:

William Boatright Family

Picture: Back - Byron and Arlena; Front - William, Leland, Virginia and Minnie





Boatright, William Louis (1876-1938) -- also known as William L. Boatright -- of Golden, Jefferson County, Colorado. Born in Gentry County, Mo., June 14, 1876. Republican. Lawyer; Colorado state attorney general, 1925-28; candidate for Governor of Colorado, 1928. Baptist. Member, Freemasons; Kiwanis; Woodmen. Died, of a heart ailment, in Golden, Jefferson County, Colorado, November 25, 1938. Interment at Crown Hill Cemetery, Denver, Colorado.





William Louis Boatright House - Golden, Colorada The Boatright House, 1518 Washington Avenue, Golden, Colorado was built in 1905 for a prominent Colorado lawyer and community leader, William L. Boatright. This house was constructed across from the old Jefferson County Courthouse. Throughout his career he was active in state water rights cases and was an advocate of prohibition.





1928 was a gubernatorial election year in Colorado and late in October Fort Morgan got a visit from Republican nominee W.L. Boatright, the Evening Times reported.

"Attorney General William L. Boatright, Republican candidate for governor, is a natural fighter and he is showing this talent in his battle for the highest political honors which Colorado has to bestow upon its sons — governorship of the commonwealth.

"Mr. Boatright will be the principal speaker here November 1 at a Republican rally at the Cover theater.

"William L. Boatright has fought a courageous, uphill battle to success in life and he will keep on fighting in the future as he has in the past — successfully. He fought his way from obscurity through country school education, normal school and the law schools of Stanford and Denver university. He fought his way to the district attorneyship in the first judicial district in 1920 and battled his way through one of the most successful administrations the office every had, to state prominence. A candidate for attorney general of Colorado in 1924, he again fought his way to success, and to re-election in 1926 by the largest Republican majority recorded in that election.

"His success as attorney general insured his nomination as Republican candidate for governor this year and as he fights his way through this campaign, remember that he has never been beaten in any campaign since he attained mature years.

"Boatright draws his fighting courage from old, American pioneer stock. Some 200 years ago his ancestors were Virginia farmers, and until the present generation all of his people were of the soil. An adventurous Boatright, over 100 years ago, loaded the covered wagon, shouldered the family squirrel rifle, and crossed the Blue Ridge into Kentucky.

"In 1852 Boatright's father heard the call of the new West and moved to northern Missouri, where he settled on raw land and built a home which still stands. Here William L. was born in 1876, and here he attended school and the little normal school at Stanberry, Mo.

"At maturity he felt the old pioneer urge and moved West again, to Colorado in 1897, and in 1898 was admitted to the bar. There started the Boatright fight in Colorado, and it is still going onward.

"People love a fighting man, and Boatright has always been that. He early identified himself with the cause of prohibitionists were a sad minority. As special attorney for the Anti-Saloon league, he engaged with others in the long uphill fight which culminated in 1914 when the Republican victory of the late George W. Carlson resulted in the state constitutional amendment forbidding manufacture and sale of liquor. Boatright is still carrying on that battle and hopes in his coming administration to see the full fruits of the long fight harvested in the most efficient enforcement ever given the anti-liquor laws.

"Boatright's reputation has come to be that of a man who can deal with situations and men successfully. He not only knows how to battle, but when to battle."

Obituary:

William Louis Boatright and Minnie Ella Stump Marker

Source: Colorado Transcript, Golden, Colorado, November 24, 1938

W. L. Boatright, Illustrious Golden Citizen, Dies Sunday

Body Lies in State at Colorado’s Capital Building, Denver, from 11 until 1:30 O’clock Wednesday

Another of the long line of illustrious sons Golden has given to public service has gone to his last reward.

William L. Boatright died at his home in Golden Sunday after a long illness of heart trouble. The body of the lawyer and former public official will lie in state in the rotunda of the state capitol today (Wednesday) from 11 o’clock until 2 o’clock, in order to give Coloradoans an opportunity to pay honor to a man who left his imprint so distinctly upon the history of the state.

William Boatright Family Coming to Colorado from his Missouri home in 1897, Mr. Boatright showed the flare for politics which marked his entire life. As a young lawyer he first established himself in Colorado Springs and was almost immediately appointed police magistrate. After coming to a Jefferson county farm near Broomfield in 1908, he soon became active in the Republican Party and has since rated as one of its outstanding leaders. He served as chairman of the Republican County Central committee for one year.

He served as district attorney of the First Judicial district from 1920 until 1925 and left that office to serve two terms as the attorney general of Colorado. He won the Republican nomination for governor in 1928, but was defeated in the election by William H. Adams.

In addition to these offices Mr. Boatright served as county attorney for Jefferson County for six years, resigning that position last spring when his condition was serious.

William Louis Boatright campaign poster for Attorney General Following his retirement from the attorney general’s office, Mr. Boatright opened a law office in Denver and saw one of his lifelong ambitions burgeon when his son Leland finished his legal education and joined his father as a partner. Three years ago his son and partner was killed while swimming near the old Boatright farm. This tragedy was the beginning of the breakdown of the elder Boatright, resulting in his death on Sunday. After the fatal accident Mr. Boatright gave up his Denver office and prepared to carry on his practice from his Golden home. But grief over the death of his son broke his health and he never again resumed a place of activity in either the legal profession or politics.

Mr. Boatright was an advocate of prohibition and was one of the leaders in framing legislation which outlawed liquor in Colorado. During his service as attorney general he negotiated a number of water pacts which have proved of great value to the irrigation industry of the state.

William L. Boatright was born on June 14, 1876, on a northern Missouri farm homesteaded by his father a quarter of a century before. He attended normal school at Stansbury, Missouri, and studied law at Denver University and Leland Stanford University. He was admitted to the bar in 1898 and began the practice of law at Colorado Springs.

He was married in 1898 to Miss Minnie Stump, who survives him. Three children also survive and all were at their father’s bedside when death came. They are Byron B. Boatright, former head of the petroleum department at the Colorado School of Mines, now a consulting engineer in Houston, Texas. Mrs. Arlene M. Pratt of Chicago and Mrs. Virginia T. Tucker of Los Angeles.

Other survivors are a daughter-in-law, Mrs. Helen Boatright, Arvada; grandchildren, Barbara Jean and William Gary Boatright, Houston, Texas, Leland Stanford Jr. and Robert John Boatright, Arvada, Bert Wilson Pratt, Chicago; and Virginia Noel Tucker, Los Angeles, California; also five brothers, Harvey of Old Mexico, Jim of Council Bluffs, Iowa, Clarence, Earl and Otis, all of Colorado Springs.

Mr. Boatright was an active member of the Baptist church, past consul of the Woodmen of the World, and a member of Golden W.O. W. Camp No. 15, Golden; a charter member of the Golden Kiwanis club and a past district governor of the club.

Notes for RODNEY SMITH BOATWRIGHT:

Rodney Smith Boatwright Gravestone

According to Robert Guy Boatright, Rodney was the only child of John Waller Boatwright who did not drop the "W" from his last name.

Gerald M. Boatwright, a grandson, writes that Rodney left Paint Lick, Madison County, Kentucky, on October 30, 1882. He arrived in Lawson, Ray County, Missouri, on November 21, 1882. On december 11, 1883, he left Missouri and settled on a farm 5.5 miles northeast of Lone Elm, Kansas.

He married a widow, Arvilla Babcock Croft in 1888. In 1910 he was hired as a solicitor for Bell Telephone and in 1913 was appointed manager of Bronson Telephone Company and moved his family to Bronson, Kansas. In 1914, they moved to Iola, Kansas.

From document by R. G. Boatright, 1971:
Rodney Smith Boatwright was a farmer for several years before he became District Manager for a local telephone company at Lone Elm, Kansas. He held that position for several years. He was a Methodist, a democrat, an Odd Fellow and also a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason.

Additional family information provided by Gerald Martin Boatwright:
"..(Rodney Smith) had a stroke a few days before he died 10 Sept 1958 while with my parents at their vacation home near Kinkaid, KS. They rushed him to a hospital in Emporia KS where he died . He is buried beside his wife at the Lone Elm, Anderson Co KS Cemetery. He had made his home with his son Norval since about 1935 . At the time of death that home was at Clements, Chase CO., KS."

Rodney applied to the DAWES Commission in 1896 for Citizenship in the Cherokee Nation. In the application, he claimed to be Cherokee Indian based on the fact that his gggrandparents, James & Rhoda Blackburn "were Cherokee Indians". He signed application with no 'w' in his name.

John Waller Boatright, Jr. was reared on the farm. After common school, he attended one year at Cooper College at Moundville, Missouri. He worked several years as grocery clerk at Garland, Kansas. Later, he married Clara. About 1909, he studied telegraphy and was employed by the Santa Fe Railroad.

While young, he attended Telegraph School at Arkansas City, Kansas. Graduating, he had charge of Stations in Oklahoma, Colorado and Kansas for the A.T. & S. F. Railroad Companies. He changed to the Frisco system over 17 years ago. He is now located at Weir City, Kansas as agent for the company.

I remember as a 12 yr old and riding west out of Garland in the funeral procession for Grandpa Boatright's funeral. I turned around in the seat and as far as you could see there were still cars headed west down the hill just west of their house. In that era, your number of friends in life was measured by the length of the funeral procession. I've always remembered that scene in my mind for some reason.

Notes for CLARA ADELLA OSBORNE:

I know that Caroline died when Grandma was quite young and that Grandma was raised by her maiden aunt and bachelor uncle, Hattie and Byron MEAD. Caroline's husband, Mr. Osborn, left her a short while before she died and was gone from Garland for many years and returned when he was an old man and was taken care of by Grandma.

Notes for ROBERT GUY BOATRIGHT:

Robert Guy Boatright

His contribution to the Boatright genealogy was essential. He wrote the book......"Boatright Family of Virginia"

From "Boatright Family of Virginia" by Robert Guy Boatright...

Robert Guy Boatright, probably better known as "Guy" or R.G., came with his parents from Allen County, Kansas to Vernon County, Missouri in 1894. He was reared on the farm, attended the public school at what was then known as Pleasant View School, in Harrison Township, Vernon County, Missouri. He later attended a term at Cooper College, a preparatory school at Moundville, Missouri.

In 1905, upon the completion of a telegraph course at Arkansas City, Kansas Trade School, he was employed by the Santa Fe Railroad and assigned as an operator at Cushing, Oklahoma where he remained until 1907. He was the Station Agent at Kendrick, Freight Clerk at Shawnee and, in 1908, was transferred to the post of Station Agent at Yale. He resigned in 1909 to accept the post of Station Agent for the M.K.&T. Railroad at Carney, OK.


Robert Guy Boatright

It was while on this assignment that he met, courted and married Atha Ellen McLaury, who was then working as a clerk in a department store in Cushing, OK. In September, 1909, he returned to the Santa Fe Railroad and was assigned as a relief operator at Hutchinson, Kansas. In November, 1909, he was transferred to Burrton, Kansas as Ticket Agent. He remained there until February, 1912.

Robert Guy Boatright and Atha Ellen McLaury In 1912, the Cushing Oil Boom started when the first well was drilled in the Cushing Field, an area where the town of Drumright now stands. That same year, Guy again resigned from the railroad in order to return to Cushing where he established a Real Estate and Insurance business which he owned and operated until his retirement, July 1, 1957.

As a successful business man for 45 years, Guy was active in all civic and community affairs. He was a Ruling Elder in the First Presbyterian Church for more than 40 years and, for more that 25 years, the Superintendent of Sunday Schools. He was a 32-degree Mason, Knights Templar and past Secretary of the Cushing Masonic Lodge. He was also President of the Cushing Rotary Club 1944-45. He served as Treasurer of the Board of Education, Cushing School District for more than 40 years (1921 - 1965).

After the death of Atha, Guy married a second time, September 8, 1950, to Mrs. Clarice Estella Hurst, widow of Edgar Hurst. She was born in Graves County, Kentucky, January 24, 1895, the daughter of Eddie Hill Carr and Ola Hontas Dick.

Robert Guy Boatright and Sons at his 80th Birthday The following is an excerpt from a letter written by W. A. "Uncle Billy" Heuston to one of his cousins in California. He is recalling the wedding of Guy and Atha. Billy was preparing to attend Guy's 91st birthday in Cushing:

He came to Cushing in 1905 as depot agent for the Santa Fe R.R. and later engaged in real estate and insurance. Maud (Billy's wife, dgb) and I attended his wedding with Atha McLaury, daughter of a Presbyterean [sic] minister who was one of our early day preachers at Soonerville (Lincoln Co, Ok). If you are tired of Boatright's, just take a rest, for there is more coming up. Guy was a little runt and Atha was very tall so a small box was provided at the wedding for Guy to make him look a little more like a man.

Robert Guy Boatright at his 90th Birthday They planned to take a train from Cushing to somewhere in Kansas. The train left Cushing sometime in the night and horses for the trip to the depot were in the barn all harnessed and ready to go. But some of Atha's tribe (and they were numerous as the McLaury's had sixteen children) who had been victims of some sort of shenanigans engineered by Atha, had seen fit to unharness the horses and turn them out to pasture. Things looked pretty bleak for the newly weds. I had a light, one-horse buggy and Guy and I planned a getaway by taking the bride and groom in my little buggy to Agra and letting them take the train from there. But, of course, there was the problem of getting away from their foes.

Atha Ellen McLaury Boatright was of Scotch Presbyterian descent. Her father was born in Pennsylvania and came to Missouri with his parents as a young man. He was an ordained Presbyterian minister who came to Oklahoma in 1902. He purchased a claim and lived on the farm until his death in 1932. Atha was 9th of 16 children.

She was a charter member of the Presbyterian Church of Cushing, Oklahoma. She was a member of the DAR...National #242262 dated 4/14/1928, based on paternal ancestor, Richard McClaughry (1739-1819), her great-grandfather. He was a private in Captain George Gilmore's Company of the 16th Reg'mt of New York Troops during Revolutionary War.

She attended elementary school at Lone Oak School, Lincoln Co. Oklahoma and High School in Cushing, OK. She clerked at a dry goods store in Cushing for a number of years prior to her marriage.

Atha was President of the P.E.O. and Hypatia Clubs of Cushing and was an active worker in the women's organizations of the local church. She was voted an Honorary Member of the Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church, USA.

See, also.. "The Genealogy of the Mac(Mc)Claughry (McLaury) Family", compiled by Charles C. McClaughry of Anamosa, Iowa, 1913. It is on file in the Library of Congress, Washington, DC, (CS-71-M1275, 1913).

Obituary, "Cushing Daily Citizen", Thursday, 3 March, 1949:
"Mrs. Atha Ellen Boatright, wife of R. G. Boatright, a pioneer of Cushing and outstanding for unselfish devotion to church, family and friends, died at 10:45 P.M. Wednesday at the local hospital. Mrs. Boatright came to Cushing at the age of 6 with her parents, the late Rev. and Mrs. D. A. McLaury. Her father was a pioneer minister and one of the organizers of the Presbyterian Church. Mrs. Boatright was a charter member of this church and a devoted worker until her health prevented. She served for a number of years as stewardship secretary of the church and was voted an Honorary Membership on the Board of Foreign Missions.

Funeral services will be held at First Presbyterian Church at three o'clock tomorrow with the Rev. Lewis R. Rogers, pastor in charge of the service. Burial will be at Fairlawn Cemetery. Surviving relatives include the husband, R. G. Boatright, one daughter, Mrs. Phillip J. Wells, three sons, Glenn L, Pasadena, Texas, Richard M., Colorado City, Texas, Robert, Bartlesville, Oklahoma, five brothers, Guy L., Elmer R., Hugh T. and Sheldon McLaury...all of Cushing and Edwin McLaury of Bartlesville, four sisters, Mrs. Floyd Griffith, Cushing, Mrs. Harriet Morgan, Bacone University, Muskogee, Mrs Leo Applegate, Drumright and Mrs. B.E. Naugle, Boulder, Colorado. She also had eleven grandchildren.

At one time, Mrs. Boatright belonged to several local organizations and was active and generous to marked degree in participation in all their activities. Besides her church societies, she had belonged to the D.A.R., the Hypatia Club, the P.E.O. and the Eastern Star. In recent years ill health caused her to resign from several of these groups. While Mrs. Boatright was in the local hospital only one week, she spent some time at the Mayo Clinic one year ago and had been in failing health since.

Born in Carroll County, Mo., June 21, 1886, Mrs. Boatright came to Cushing with her parents at the age of six. She was married to R.G. Boatright, June 9th, 1909. They lived in Cushing all of their married life and reared a family here. In countless ways Mrs. Boatright was a unique and unusual person.

She often said that her church came first, yet, she had a wide circle of friends and many relatives, with all of whom she kept in very close touch."
