Ellison Boatwright Gravestone

The companies of the 29th Alabama were mustered in sometime in 1861 and given their letter designation by the mustering officer. Unfortunately there were not sufficient companies and men to form a regiment, so they were formed as the 4th Alabama Battalion Infantry, and placed under the immediate command of Colonel John F. Conoley of Dallas County, Alabama. The Battalion was thereafter sent by rail to Pensacola as part of the garrison to protect the fort held by the Confederates. While stationed here two additional companies were added to the 4th Battalion. Captain J. B. Sowell's Company I from Conecuh County and Captain John C. McNabb's Company K from Barbour County. The addition of these two companies brought the compliment up to regimental strength, and it was thereafter designated as the 29th Regiment Alabama Infantry. The Regiment remained in Pensacola until that place was evacuated in late Summer of 1862. The Regiment then lay between Pensacola and Camp Pollard, just inside the Alabama line, in Conecuh County, at a place called Camp Lee. This area was found to be very unhealthy, especially during the fever season which began in mid August and grew worse through September and October. Many of the young men died from Typhoid Fever while at Camp Lee. They languished in the area for over a year and in early 1863 were ordered to Mobile. Here they went into camp north of the City. After arriving in Mobile the Regiment was brigade with the 17th and 21st Alabama and the 37th Mississippi Regiments and placed under the command of Brigadier General James Cantey, of Russell County, Alabama. There were rumors that they would finally be going to the front to see some action and kill some Yankees, but it did not happen. Cantey's Brigade remained in camp north of Mobile from July 1863 till April 1864, and did absolutely nothing except march from place to place and drill daily, with an occasional parade through the City of Mobile. They suffered under the same dull and boring camp duty they had been subjected to from almost the beginning. Desertions became widespread throughout the Brigade. Finally in April 1864 the Brigade was ordered to join the main Army of Tennessee in North Georgia, then under the command of General Joseph E. Johnston.

Notes for NATHANIEL RUFFIN BOATRIGHT:

Camp Douglas Sketch

Served in CSA, 1st Regiment, Alabama Infantry, captured near Nashville, Tennessee on December 15, 1864 and died a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas, Chicago, Illinois.

1st Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Pensacola, Florida, in March, 1861. The men were from the counties of Tallapoosa, Pike, Lowndes, Wilcox, Talladega, Barbour, and Macon. For a year it manned the batteries at Pensacola, then with 1,000 men moved to Missouri where all but a detachment were captured at Island No. 10. The prisoners were exchanged during September, 1862, and it was soon ordered to Port Hudson. Here the unit endured many hardships, and nearly 500 were captured on July 9, 1863. Exchanged and reorganized with 610 effectivesthe 1st joined the Army of Tennessee and served in General Quarles' and Shelley's Brigade. It took an active part in the Atlanta and Tennessee Campaigns, and ended the war in North Carolina. Its casualties were high at Peach Tree Creek and were again heavy at Franklin and Nashville. Less than 100 surrendered in April, 1865. The field officers were Colonels Henry D. Clayton and I.G.W. Steedman, Lieutenant Colonel Michael B. Locke, and Majors S.L. Knox and Jere N. Williams.

The Battle of Nashville, fought Dec. 15-16, 1864, was the last major battle of the Civil War and a decisive victory for the Union, commanded by Maj. Gen. George H. Thomas. The Army of Tennessee under Gen. John Bell Hood had approached the city in early December after horrendous losses at the Battle of Franklin. They formed a line south of the city and waited for the Federals to attack, suffering from the cold winter weather and the lack of food. Despite forceful urgings from U.S. Grant in Washington to immediately engage the enemy, Thomas waited two weeks to strike, lingering while he reinforced his cavalry and waited out the ice storms. Then, on the foggy morning of Thurs., Dec. 15, Union forces, including many U.S. Colored Troops, hit the Rebel right flank. Although the attack was unsuccessful, it was a diversionary tactic. The main attack came in a vast, wheeling movement westward and then southward from the Union defensive lines against the fortified Rebel left flank. Five small forts or redoubts fought fiercely but were eventually overrun by superior numbers of bluecoats. As dusk neared, the Rebels fell back two miles to establish a second line of defense, anchored on the left at Shy’s Hill and on the right at Peach Orchard Hill. Again, on Dec. 16, the Federals hit the Rebel right flank, which held fast. Then, following a terrific artillery barrage, the Union assaulted Shy’s Hill and the U.S. Cavalry managed to sweep behind the Rebel lines. Blasted from three sides, the Confederate positions crumbled, and the men in gray fled southward in retreat. The brave and proud Army of Tennessee had been routed and, for all practical purposes, destroyed. Source: the Battle of Nashville Preservation Society


Camp Douglas Photo - 1863 In 1861, a tract of land at 31st Street and Cottage Grove Avenue in Chicago was provided by the estate of Stephen A. Douglas for a Union Army training post on the original site of the first University of Chicago. The first Confederate prisoners of war, more than 7,000 from the capture of Fort Donelson in Tennessee, arrived in February 1862 by the Illinois Central railroad which ran along the shore of Lake Michigan just to the east of the camp. Eventually, over 26,000 Confederate soldiers passed through the prison camp, which eventually came to be known as the North's "Andersonville" for its inhumane conditions.

Prisoners were deprived of clothing to discourage escapes. Many wore sacks with head and arm holes cut out; few had underwear. Blankets to offset the bitter northern winter were confiscated from the few that had them. The weakest froze to death. The Chicago winter of 1864 was devastating. The loss of 1,091 lives in only four months was heaviest for any like period in the camp's history, and equaled the deaths at the highest rate of Andersonville from February to May, 1864.

Oak Woods Cemetery, Confederate Monument It is estimated that from 1862–1865, more than 6,000 Confederate prisoners died from disease, starvation, and the bitter cold winters (although as many as 1,500 were reported as "unaccounted" for). The largest number of prisoners held at any one time was 12,000 in December, 1864. Accounts vary as to precise numbers. According to 80 Acres of Hell, a television documentary produced by the A&E Network and the The History Channel, the reason for the uncertainty is that many records were intentionally destroyed after the war. The documentary also alleges that, for a period of time, the camp contracted with an unscrupulous undertaker who sold some of the bodies of Confederate prisoners to medical schools and had the rest buried in shallow graves without coffins. Some were even dumped in Lake Michigan only to wash up on its shores. Many, however, were initially buried in unmarked pauper's graves in Chicago's City Cemetery (located on the site of today's Lincoln Park), but in 1867 were reinterred at what is now known as Confederate Mound in Oak Woods Cemetery (5 miles south of the former Camp Douglas).

Nobody was ever held accountable for the conditions and actions at Camp Douglas, in fact the only Union general to gain the rank without seeing combat was an overseer of Camp Douglas. This is also to this date the largest mass grave in the western hemisphere, as documented by the book To Die in Chicago.


Oak Woods Cemetery, Confederate Monument Plaque Oak Woods Cemetery, Chicago, Illinois was established in 1854 on an area of 183 acres located at 1035 E. 67th Street in Chicago, Illinois. The first burials took place in 1860. During the American Civil War, six thousand Confederate soldiers and prisoners of war who died at Camp Douglas (Chicago) were buried together in a mass grave. A monument known as the Confederate Mound was erected in their memory.

The Confederate dead here buried in concentric trenches were all private soldiers.

The monument to their memory is of Georgia granite, stands forty feet from the ground to the top of statue and was erected in July 1893 with funds mainly subscribed by liberal citizens of Chicago and camps of the United Confederate Veterans. The bronze statue surmounting the battlemented cap of the column is a realistic representation of a Confederate infantry soldier after the surrender. The face expresses sorrow for the thousands of prison dead interred beneath. Around the base of the monument are bronze tablets with the name and unit of every Confederate buried here.

Notes for AZARIAH JOHN BOATWRIGHT:

Azariah and Mary Clark Boatwright:

The 13th Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers was formed in the summer of 1861. The Regiment was the brain child of Oliver Evans Edwards who was born in Spartanburg District on November 9, 1819. In response to a call from President Jefferson Davis about the 1st of July 1861, a large number of infantry companies were formed across South Carolina. Oliver E. Edwards had fought in the First Battle of Manassas. Answering the call of President Davis, Oliver E. Edwards returned to his home county of Spartanburg, South Carolina and with the help of others organized five companies which would later become part of the 13th Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers.

Companies B, C, E, F, and I were all organized of Spartanburg County, South Carolina Volunteers. Company A was organized of Laurens County Volunteers; Companies D and G were organized of Newberry County Volunteers; and Companies H and K were organized of Lexington County Volunteers. The men of the above companies left their home counties in August of 1861 and went to a camp of instruction at Lightwood Knot Springs, about 5 miles from Columbia, South Carolina, where the various companies were organized into regiments. Here, the 13th was formed and elected its field-officers: Colonel O.E. Edwards, Lieutenant Colonel P.L. Calhoun, and Major T. Stobo Farrow. After about three months of instruction at Lightwood Knot Springs, the 13th was ordered to the southern coast of South Carolina, near Pocotaglio, where it was brigaded with the 12th and 14th regiments. The 13th was present at the well known bombardment of Hilton Head by the Federal fleet. On the evacuation of the position there, the regiment was successfully withdrawn, after some very muddy wading to the mainland. It was next stationed near Green Pond, near the line of Colleton and Beaufort counties. At this time, the 13th, along with the 12th and 14th regiments, were formed into a brigade under the command of Brig. General Maxey Gregg. The brigade remained on the coast of South Carolina until April of 1862 when it was ordered to Virginia. Its first camp in Virginia was around Milford Station, on the Richmond and Fredericksburg railroad.

Azariah John Boatwright and Mary Emily Clark Gravestone As stated, the 13th Regiment was originally part of Gregg's Brigade. After arriving in Virginia, Gregg's Brigade was composed of five South Carolina regiments, to wit: 13th regiment, 12th regiment, 14th regiment, 1st regiment and Orr's regiment of rifles. These five regiments would remain together for the duration of the war as a brigade. Gregg's Brigade eventually became McGowan's Brigade and was a part of A.P. Hill's Division and became part of General Stonewall Jackson's Corp. After Jackson's death at Chancellorsville, the brigade was made a part of the Third Corp. As a result of a wound received at Chancellorsville, Colonel O.E. Edwards also died. The 13th then was led by Benjamin T. Brockman, also of Spartanburg County. Brockman was promoted to Colonel and he also died of wounds he received at "bloody bend" at the Battle of Spottsylvania Courthouse on May 12, 1864. After Brockman's death, the regiment for the first time was led by someone other than a Spartanburg County native. Captain Isaac F. Hunt of Company D of Newberry County was made the commander of the 13th and promoted to Colonel.

The 13th Regiment remained a part of the army of northern Virginia until the conclusion of the war. The 13th Regiment was present at the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse on April 9, 1865. Captain John Wilson Carlisle of Company C later recalled General Custer of the Federal Army passing in front of the 13th waving a white flag as it was getting ready to go into engagement.

Of the 13th Regiment, 220 men were killed in battle or died of wounds. 262 died of disease and 678 men received wounds in combat.


Azariah John Boatwright served during the Civil War as a Private in Company K, 13th Reg SC Volunteers. He was captured twice, but returned to service after his first release. He was wounded at Gettysburg and lived with the bullet in his body for the rest of his life. He was short of stature, had particularly short legs. He was a planter of cotton, corn, and indigo in the early years, shifting production to peaches, asparagus, and poultry in later years (from notes by Emily Cato Wilson to Emmie Cato Pinson).

The Boatwright Cemetery is next door to the former home (still standing in 1995) of Azariah J. Boatwright and wife Emily Clark, on Two-Notch Road, south of Batesburg, South Carolina abt 1.4 mi E of US-Hwy178/ Fairview Rd.

The home was built by Azariah when he returned from the Civil War, to replace their original log cabin.

Notes for MARY EMILY CLARK:

Emily Clark Boatwright was very proud to be named for the Lexington county heroine of the Revolutionary War, Emily Geiger. She was an honorary member of the Leesville chapter, U.D.C.; she treasured and preserved family heirlooms and memories of visits to the historic home of her maternal grandparents, Molly and Joseph Lybrand. Even in later years she maintained interest in the family farm and regaled visitors with vivid stories of her ancestors. Relatives of Mary Emily Clark operated a flour mill at Dreher Shoals, now under waters captured by the Saluda Dam. They lived in the Chinquepin District (east of modern Monetta). The family was Dutch-German-Irish (from notes by Emily Cato Wilson to Emmie Cato Pinson).

He son, Oscar C. Boatwright, lived with and cared for her until her death, when he inherited her home.

Her siblings were long-lived. At her death, the following survived her:
Mrs. Nancy C. Clarke, Lexington
Mrs. Julia Clarke Shealy, Lexington
Preston Clarke, Lexington
Mrs. Jane C. Hutto, Leesville
A. S. Clarke, Batesburg

DEATH OF MRS. EMILY CLARK BOATWRIGHT Batesburg-Leesville, SC, Twin City News, July 10, 1934

Prominent Woman of Near Batesburg Buried Monday in Family Cemetery.

Mrs. Emily Clarke Boatwright, one of the oldest and most highly respected women of this section, died Sunday at her home near Batesburg in her 88th year; and the funeral, which was largely attended by a host of friends and relatives, was held from the home Monday afternoon, with the Rev. W. F. Hiers, of the Wittenbuerg Lutheran church, Leesville, officiating, the interment being in the family cemetery near the home.

Mrs. Boatwright's long and useful life was spent in Lexington county and her passing was a great sorrow not only to her family and relatives, but to hundreds of friends in this section. The deceased was born near Lexington on Jan. 30, 1846, the daughter of Andrew J. and Mary Lybrand Clarke and the great grand-daughter of Gregory Clarke, who served with General Greene in his South Carolina campaign during the Revolution. Her girlhood days including the Confederate war period, were spent near the place of her birth. Shortly after the war she married Asariah J. Boatwright, a member of Co., K, 13th regiment, South Carolina Volunteers. Of this union were born four sons and four daughters.

From Mr. Boatwright's death about thirty years ago until recent years, Mrs. Boatwright took an active part in the management of the farm, bringing to this task, added to that of rearing her family and later the family of a deceased son, unusual fortitude and cheerfulness. She took a great deal of interest in the Leesville chapter, U.D.C.*, of which she was an honorary member.

Surviving Mrs. Boatwright are two sons, R. J. and O. C. Boatwright, of Batesburg; four daughters, Mrs. William Cato, Monetta; Mrs. Mary B. Jumper, Springfield; Mrs. B. I. Able, Pensacola, Fla., and Mrs. Julian C. Quattlebaum, of Batesburg; nine grand-children and three great grandchildren. Surviving also are the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. Nancy C. Clarke, Mrs. Julia Clarke Shealy, Preston Clarke, all of Lexington; Mrs. Jane C. Hutto, Leesville, and A. S. Clarke, Batesburg.

(Transcriber's note: many of the children spelled the name "Clark"; Mrs. Boatwright wrote it as "Clarke"; the name appears as "Clark" on her tombstone)


Extract from Contributed Article about Mrs. Emily Clark Boatwright, Batesburg-Leesville, SC, Twin City News (approx. 1934)

...Even now she takes a lively interest in the management of her household and of the various farming activities which have survived from the cotton, corn and the indigo of her earlier years to peaches, asparagus and poultry production under the supervision of her son, Oscar C. Boatwright. She also takes a pleasurable interest in the work of the Leesville Chapter U.D.C., of which she is an honorary member.

A visit to the home of Mrs. Boatwright is a truly memorable occasion. Here the caller may see furnishings of a by-gone day, including a spinning wheel, an unique corner cupboard and a home-blown camphor bottle brought by immigrqant foretathers from the banks of the River Rhine. A home-made walnut chest bulges with tight bodiced full skirted dresses and other garments, spun and woven by their owner, knitted flounces, long mittens, children's small bonnets and aprons of more than three score years ago, and various articles of confederate uniform. Another chest is filled with books and letters whose pages are crumbly and yellowed with age. The especially favored guest may be shown numerous miniatures with delicate gold tracery against the backrounds of flaming scarlet velvet and other intimate souvenirs of the past.

Mrs. Boatwright fascinates her callers with modest but vivid accounts of life in the 60's [1860's]. Baking in genuine old Dutch ovens, annual trips to Columbia for supplies when Columbia was a "town", visits to the flour mill operated by relatives at Dreher Shoals, the present site of Saluda Dam, war time romances, and reconstruction days are topics of which her listeners never tire. Among her most treasured memories are the visits to the home of her maternal grandparents, Joseph and Molly Lybrand, north of Lexington. The Joseph Lybrand house, erected about 1800, was the first frame house in the Boiling Springs section. It still stands in a good state of preservation. From the grandparents who lived there in her childhood days, and whose lives extended back into the revolutionary era, little Emily Clarke heard exciting accounts of the Indicans of the section and of the famous ride of Emily Geiger. It is for this Lexington county heroine that she was named -- a fact of which she is very proud.

Mrs. Boatwright intersperses her recitals of long remembvered things with comments upon the modern day. She welcomes the innovations in home and farm devices, transportation, manufacturing, etc. She smiles tolerantly, and accepts with chuckles of amusement the dress and manners of the modern youth.

Always companionable, her optimism, sparkling humor, and rare ability to move along with the times have drawn about this venerable woman a host of friends. Even the saucy redbird who for several seasons has tapped daily at her window pane for crumbs from her hand seems to feel the compelling magnetisn of this true daughter of the Carolina pioneers.

Lived with his father-in-law for a short while in the 1870's.I don't know a whole lot about him only that they say he was an avid fisherman, rather fish than eat and I guess that is where my uncles got their love for fishing.

Her and 3 of her kids died within a matter of days of each other,the fourth child was though to have recovered but died shortly thereafter.My grandfather never really talked much about his mother and was always very upset about her loss as he was about 10 years old when death came calling upon our family very heavily.

9-155. GEORGE W. BOATWRIGHT (EDMUND D.9, DANIEL8, WILLIAM7, WILLIAM6, THOMAS5, JOHN4, JOHN3, JOHN2, Not Yet Determined1) was born 1837 in Washington County, Georgia, and died 12 Jul 1864 in Frederick, Frederick County, Maryland.


Notes for GEORGE W. BOATWRIGHT:

He was mortally wounded in the Battle of Monocacy on July 9, 1864.

George W. Boatwright Gravestone Mt. Olivet Cemetery Gate

Gravestone reads: "PVT, G. W. BOATWRIGHT, Co. E, 12 GA LT ARTY, CSA, JULY 12, 1864"


From Jim Moore, Feb 16, 2001, descendant of Edmund/Edmond Boat(w)right:
GEORGE W. BOATRIGHT, who served in the 3rd Company E, 12th GeorgiaBattalion, Georgia Light Artillery, Capt. J.J. Newsome.

"On the 8th attacked the enemy at Harper's Ferry, drove them on MarylandHeights, marched all night, attacked Major General Wallace's corps on the 9th at Monocacy Junction, and drove it out of our line of march."

Boatright, George W., Pvt., Enlisted 5/14/62, Sandersville, Georgia, Wounded 7/9/64 Monocacy, Maryland, Died Frederick, Maryland 7/12/64, Buried Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Frederick, Maryland, Grave #243.

The Battle of Monocacy (also known as Monocacy Junction) was fought on July 9, 1864, just outside Frederick, Maryland, as part of the Valley Campaigns of 1864, in the American Civil War. Confederate forces under Lt. Gen. Jubal A. Early defeated Union forces under Maj. Gen. Lew Wallace. The battle was part of Early's raid through the Shenandoah Valley and into Maryland, attempting to divert Union forces away from Gen. Robert E. Lee's army under siege at Petersburg, Virginia.

By late afternoon the Federals were retreating toward Baltimore, leaving behind over 1,294 dead, wounded, and captured. Later, General Wallace gave orders to collect the bodies of the dead in a burial ground on the battlefield where he proposed a monument to read: "These men died to save the National Capital, and they did save it."

Confederate Maj. Gen. Dodson Ramseur's division encountered Wallace's troops on the Georgetown Pike near the Best Farm; Maj. Gen. Robert E. Rodes's division clashed with the Federals on the National Road. Believing that a frontal attack across the Monocacy would be too costly, Early sent John McCausland's cavalry down Buckeystown Road to find a ford and outflank the Union line. Confederates penetrated the Monocacy defenses below the McKinney-Worthington Ford and attacked Wallace's left flank. Some of the heaviest fighting that day took place where they confronted Ricketts's veterans at a fence separating the Worthington and Thomas farms. The Federals fought fiercely to hold position, but it was only a matter of time before the superior force—nearly 15,000 Confederates—gained control. A three-pronged attack of Confederate's from Maj. Gen. John B. Gordon's division pushed Ricketts back toward the National Road where he was joined by the beleaguered troops who had fought Ramseur and Rodes all day.

The way lay open to Washington. Early's army had won the field at Monocacy, but at the expense of 700 to 900 killed and wounded and a day lost. The next morning the Confederates marched on, and by midday Monday, Early stood inside the District of Columbia at the earthworks of Fort Stevens, which he assaulted unsuccessfully on July 11, 1864.

Monocacy cost Early a day's march and his chance to capture Washington. Thwarted in the attempt to take the capital, the Confederates turned back to Virginia, ending their last campaign to carry the war into the North.


Washington Post, Feb 14, 2001:

The letters [from George W. Boatwright during the War] are fragile, the writing turned brown with age. But the tender words of love sent by a lonely Civil War soldier to a Georgia girl he hopes to marry still resonate more than a century later. "I do wish I could see you -- then I could tell you how I feel for you," the soldier wrote from the battlefield. "One glance from you would afford me inexpressable joy."

George Boatright is the suitor, Martha Jane "Mattie" Burrows the object of his affection. The letters, rescued from the trash in 1985, led Mattie's descendants on a quest to learn more about the two lovers. More than a century later, this Valentine's story still has no end. It is told only from the point of view of the suitor because Mattie's letters did not survive. A persistent correspondent, George addressed his 15-year-old love as "Miss Mattie." Sometimes he worried that he bored her with all his talk of battles. For George, and for all the soldiers, war made love more important, and immediate. "In war, there is a sense of urgency," said John Coski, archivist for the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond. "It loosens the tongue and the pen."

The Confederate soldier whose tongue was loosened enlisted in May 1862 at Sandersville, Ga., to fight with the Georgia Light Artillery. No one now knows how or where he met Mattie, who lived on a farm outside Finnelson, Georgia, near Warner Robbins, but he wrote her numerous letters.

A photograph of Mattie shows a petite woman, with long slender fingers,wearing a floor-length dress set off by a white collar. Cameo earrings dangle below dark hair that is rolled tightly around her head. From Richmond, on June 4, 1864, George wrote: "Your letters are always so cheering and refreshing. If I am feeling sad and gloomy they cause me to feel happy and content with my hard lot. I assure you there is nothing that affords me more pleasure than receiving and answering letters from my dear Mattie. (Excuse endearing words) though they are pure and uttered from the heart."

"Thees words are my hearts sentiments -- they are words that I have longed to speak. . . . Just imagine how happy it would make 'George' to meet with my 'dear Mattie.' I must say that you feel nearer to me than anyone I have ever met with, and to seal what I am now saying, will you consent to be my Mattie?" He closes by asking her to send him an answer in her next letter, "as my fate for weal or woe depends on your answer. Please releave Your Devoted, George."

In other letters, George worries that he is boring her with talk of battles.

"I will try to interest you better in the future," he wrote in November 1863.

By March 1864, he is sick with the "chills" and looking for some comfort.

"Perhaps your heart will bleed at hearing of my illness, however I do feel constrained to tell you of it. I don't mean to say you would be troubled about it, but perhaps it may be that I do not command enough of your esteem."

It is unknown whether she ever consented to be George's Mattie.

He was mortally wounded in the Battle of Monocacy on July 9 and died on July 12.

He was buried in nearby Frederick.

Mattie did not marry until her fifties, when she wed widower R.G. Fulchum, a much older man and the brother of her sister-in-law. They were married for about five years until he died in 1897.

Mattie died in 1932 at age 85 and was buried in her family's plot in Hawkinsville, Georgia.

The marriage proposal letter can be seen on a touch-screen computer program at Monocacy National Battlefield.

Yesterday, Cindy Roser and her daughter Martha Jane -- Mattie's namesake-- took turns reading George's letters aloud.

Finally, Martha Jane, who goes by Jane, could stand it no longer. "Please stop," she said. "You are making me cry."

The following information was provided by Winifred Allan Akridge, 4/12/2004:

I got a copy of the marriage record for Sallie Boatwright and William A. Osborn.

They were married in Selma, Dallas County, AL 5 Sept. 1889.

He stated that he was a widower, age 47.

He got the license and he gave Sallie's age as 32 although in reality she was 37.

I don't know the Book # but the page is 522.

I also got a copy of both his and her Confederate Pension applications.

He states that he served as a private with Co. B, 20th Alabama Regt., enlisting on 10 Sept 1861 in Selma and serving until the war's end in April, 1865.

He was wounded at the battle of New Hope, GA.

At the time he applied for the pension (20 June 1911) he gave his age as 70 and was living in Bingham, Elmore County, Alabama.

He is listed as living in a boarding house in Selma on the 1870 census and working as a machinist.

I do not find him anywhere else on the census.

Notes for HENRY CLAY BOATRIGHT:

Henry Clay Boatright Gravestone


This first part is from the data provided by Dr. Tom C. Moore, husband of Elaine Killough.

HENRY CLAY BOATRIGHT was born on June 16, 1856 and died July 1, 1933 in Elmore County. It was said of him that he didn't want to own all the land in the world - just all the land that adjoined his. He had a leg-up on this ambition, by the time he passed away.

When Henry Boatright bought a farm, he would immediately harvest the trees, in order to pay off the mortgage, and he owned a sawmill, so he could sell finished lumber, not raw timber, just as he owned his own gin, so he could maximize his cotton profits.

It was said that he treated his help "like slaves." For example, he maintained a commissary (company store), and once, when one of his employees wanted to know just how much he owed the store, Uncle Henry refused to tell him, unless the man could pay the entire bill, at once. This exchange, true or not, is indicative of a certain attitude.


During the Great Depression, many farms were seized by the state,when the owners were unable to pay their property taxes. Henry Boatwright bought some of this land at public auction.

Henry Clay owned the first car in Flea Hop, a Cole, and on most Sunday mornings, drove as many as seven people to services at Good Hope Baptist Church.

A thrifty and energetic farmer, Henry planted his land fence post-to-fence post. In the summer of 1933, while he lay in bed, dying of pneumonia, the Roosevelt Administration set up the 'cotton allotment' system. In order to qualify for price supports, farmers had to "plow under" crops, which had been planted, earlier in the year. Henry's relatives kept this news from him, lest it hasten his death.

He never had any children. He left his land to some of his nieces and nephews, with the interesting condition that the estate remain intact, until the last of them had died. Charles W. Killough has a copy of the will.

A farm in Redland was not included in the will, because Henry Clay bought that 750 acres after he wrote the will. So, Charles B. G. Killough, was able to buy it after "Uncle Henry" died. Later, this farm in Redland was divided between Charles W. and Frank B. Killough.


This is written by Frank B. Killough 1998

PREFACE
Several of Uncle Henry's heirs have asked me to write some things about my recollections about him and his estate.

My mother, Jessie Boatwright Killough, or Ralph Fomby would have been able to do a much better job; however, sadly it is too late for that to happen.

Many of the items that I will mention will be from my personal recollection, many will be from stories Mother shared with me, some from records Mother left me, some from documents recorded in the Probate Office of Elmore County, and other from my neighbors who have lived here in Redland both currently and in the past.

Since sixty-five years have passed since Uncle Henry's death, it is practically impossible to verify all of these recollections.

Henry Clay Boatwright was born June 16, 1856 and died July 11, 1933. He is buried in the Good Hope Baptist Church cemetery near Flea Hop. His cemetery grave markers are the most prominent in the cemetery. Also, buried in that cemetery are many relatives including several brothers and nieces. Aunt Dovie is buried along beside him. She was born May 29, 1870,and died August 24, 1903.

Uncle Henry married twice; once to Dovie Lazenby of Good Hope and late to Nellie Whatley of the Macon County community and I believe she is buried there.

During the last week or two of Uncle Henry's life, Dr. Gamble of Wetumpka made two house calls each day to check on his condition. His charge for a house visit was five dollars. Also, a private nurse was hired to care for him.

With no children to become heir to his holdings, he looked to an orphan home to adopt a boy. The boy must have been unhappy with farm life, so he stole all the cash around the house and Uncle Henry's gold watch and ran away. Uncle Henry never looked for him.

Farm life was very harsh during the Depression. Aunt Nellie wore flour sack dresses to church at Good Hope Baptist Church. Since Uncle Henry had considerable holdings, the congregation wondered why Nellie wore dresses made from flour sacks. I expect it was because all the other ladies wore dresses made from flour sacks. Uncle Henry's home was well built and spacious. The remains are found on the Homeplace. Lighting was provided by carbide gas. Running water was provided in the kitchen and bathroom from a tall water tower located near the back of the kitchen. This water tower also provided drinking water for the chicken pen, hog pen, and for the barn. Water was also collected in a cistern located at the corner of the back porch. This cistern probably supplied the water for washing clothes, mopping floors and watering flowers. Water was a precious commodity in Redland. Of course, it was gravity flow from the tank. Water was pushed to the tank by a hydraulic ram located near a spring in a deep ravine northeast ofthe home. Heat was supplied by five fire places: one in the parlor, one in each of the three bedrooms and one in the dining room.

Located between the front porch steps and the picket fence gate was an in-ground concrete goldfish bowl. Visiting children probably had trouble passing this bowl without first playing with the goldfish.

Charles and I enjoyed playing with the tripod-mounted telescope on the front porch. Uncle Henry's field road approaching the house led for a mile straight from the front porch and with the telescope he could identify approaching guests from a mile away.

Cotton was Uncle Henry's primary source of income. He had his tenants plant cotton on every acre of land available, with the exception of the river land where corn was grown. The corn provided feed for the mules and meal for making corn bread.

The price for cotton continued to drop during the Great Depression. Soon cotton was selling for five cents per pound.

When President Franklin Roosevelt was elected in 1932, he introduced several government programs to bring the nation out of the Depression. With cotton prices too low, he formed the A.A.A. (Agricultural Adjustment Administration) which called for plowing up cotton to raise the price.Farmers could grow only a controlled number of acres. The first year to"plow-up" was 1933.

In July of 1933 Uncle Henry was on his death bed with pneumonia. His foreman knew it would be stressful to Uncle Henry if he knew about the "plowing up" of his cotton. So, without letting him know, the foreman began having the tenants plow-up the cotton. Uncle Henry died without knowing a portion of his prized cotton was being plowed up. This practice of contracting the acreage of cotton continues in some form or another today.

Uncle Henry's farming operation was efficient and frugal. He operated his own grist mill to grind corn meal, his own saw mill to turn logs into lumber, a syrup making mill, and a commissary to provide basic personal needs of his hands and tenants.

The commissary stocked items that could not be grown on the farm.These items included: salt, baking soda, pepper, sugar, flour, chewing tobacco, snuff, matches, plow tools, etc.

When tenants made a purchase, it would be charged against the agreed $100.00 per year allowance. Once the cotton was picked and the account was paid, the tenants hoped there would be some money left for Christmas. After the cotton crop was harvested, the tenants would be allowed to perform "day labor" wherever they could find work. The typical pay for a laborer was fifty-cents per day. A day's work consisted of being on the job before daybreak and working until dark.

During the late fall and winter months Uncle Henry would sometimes purchase a nearby parcel of land. With his sawmill and labor he would sell enough lumber from the parcel to pay for the land. This may have seemed harsh to the former owner of the parcel, yet it was not uncommon for landowners to abandon their land as they could not afford to pay the taxes. In such cases, Uncle Henry would check the location of the land; if it was in Redland, he would pay the taxes due and secure title to the land.

In the early 1930's Uncle Charlie Boatwright (a half brother) lived in a tenant house on the Homeplace and worked for Uncle Henry as a tenant and laborer.

AFTER HIS DEATH
Uncle Henry's will included a widow's dower of $10,000.00, and also included the use of the Homeplace for lifetime, all the tools, livestock, machinery, vehicles and motor vehicles located on the Homeplace. However, soon after his death, Aunt Nellie and her family decided this was not enough for her dower and filed a suit in court to get all of Uncle Henry's assets except the land. The court ruled in her favor. Among things included in his assets were proceeds from life insurance policies, bank accounts, stocks, school warrants, and mortgages held by him. Household and kitchen furniture, personal property, a Chevrolet truck, two Fordson steel-wheeled tractors, a Dodge automobile, mules, cows and many other farming implements and tools. Also assets included outstanding debts owed to him and these numbered thirty or more. Some debts represented more than thousands of dollars.

It appeared, by the number of outstanding loans owed to Uncle Henry, that he might be considered the main lender for the Redland community.

After Aunt Nellie had collected as many outstanding debts as possible and sold all assets except land, she returned to her home community of Society Hill.

With Aunt Nellie gone, the estate needed someone to manage and get the next year's cotton crop planted. Uncle Henry named Uncle George Boatwright and Uncle Jeff Boatwright as executors. Uncle George died between the time the will was made and Uncle Henry's death.

In Uncle Jeff's case, I remember going with Mother and Daddy to Macon, Georgia, to bring Uncle Jeff to Redland. We traveled in Daddy's1930 two door Model A Ford. Including my brother, Charles, we had five passengers. Uncle Jeff was large and rather rotund. Mother asked me to sit on his lap in the back seat. As I recall, there was not much lap and the best I could do was lean against his stomach. I was ten years old. Uncle Jeff was a business man and had very little experience in farming. After considering the time it would take to manage several farms located as much as five miles apart, he declined the job.

With no one available to do the job, Mother agreed to manage the estate. She managed it for approximately 30 years. During the late 1940's Mother had the home wired for electricity. During the mid 1950's, she had a new roof installed.

Ralph Fomby managed the estate for about 20 years, and I did the job about 10 years and, as you know, Mike Fomby is currently doing a very good job.

He is buried beside his first wife, Dovie, in the Good Hope Cemetery. Their's are the largest markers in the cemetery. He was a large landowner, farmer, merchant. His farm was located in the Red Lands area of Elmore County, just over the county line from Montgomery.
