525. EMILY ELIZABETH SMITH (MARY ANN TYNER, DEMPSEY, WILLIAM, WILLIAM, SARAH, NICHOLAS) was born October 20, 1843 in Alabama, USA, and died January 03, 1916 in Scottsboro, Jackson, Alabama, USA.

Rather than a child of Mary, Emily must surely be a grandchild? The widow's pension paper works says that George and Mary Smith were her Grandparents. This was testified by Emma, Neighbors and Family members, but no statement from anyone not even Emma as to who her parents are?

Notes for THOMAS M. TYNER:
Is he actually a descendant of Dempsey Tyner? Per "The Tyner/Tiner DNA Project" at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~tynerdna/groups.html "The participants in Thomas' Family Group are descendants of an unknown male. Jefferson Davis Tiner, the son of Thomas who was the son of Jesse and his wife Elizabeth, is listed on trees as a descendant of Dempsey Tyner but this is incorrect as DNA testing has disproved this theory. It's unknown which descendant of Jesse's the tester with Thomas as his ancestor is from. "

883......i......JEFFERSON DAVIS TYNER, b. October 22, 1861, Watervalley, LaFayette, Mississippi, USA; d. March 21, 1938, Waco, McLennan, Texas, USA. Notice how he and his sister aren't in the 1870 census, and appear in 1880 nearly grown. Were they adopted, perhaps? That would make Thomas M. Tyner a true Tyner, and explain why Jefferson's DNA doesn't match.
.....ii......PHILOCA TYNER, b. Abt. 1867, LaFayette County, Mississippi, USA.

Notes for STEPHEN JACKSON TINER:
Per Tammy , Date: Wed, 30 Aug 2006 18:38:16 -0500:
"Stephen Jackson " Jack" Tiner was born 1811 and died 1896. Affidavits that he made to the Southern Claims Commission in 1870 in which he states that his brother William fought for the "Rebels" and that William was at that time living in Arkansas. That is about all I know about him. There was a William living near Jack in 1860 with a wife and one son. I had assumed this was Jacks brother but do not have any proof. He was not there in 1870. Jack's mother, Rachel lived with him after his father, John, died in 1838. Jack never fought in the Civil War but was a Northern Sympathizer. Two of his sons were forced to fight for the South and one was killed in service. The other managed to escape from the southerner army and joined the Union Troops."

529. LEROY CLARKE TINER (JOHN S. TYNER, DEMPSEY, WILLIAM, WILLIAM, SARAH, NICHOLAS) was born Abt. 1815 in Tennessee, USA, and died August 20, 1841 in DeKalb County, Alabama, USA. He married CAROLINE BRADLEY April 15, 1836 in DeKalb County, Alabama, USA. She was born February 04, 1818 in Tennessee, USA, and died December 24, 1900 in Sand Flat, Johnson, Texas, USA.

Notes for LEROY CLARKE TINER:
The marriage record is in the Dekalb County Courthouse in Ft. Payne, Alabama.

Per Tammy , Date: Wed, 30 Aug 2006 18:38:16 -0500:
"I don't think, with the records I find, that Eliza or George are Caroline' and Leroy's children. Leroy died 8/20/1841 and Eliza was born in 1847, with George born in 1858, so he can't be the father. Caroline could have had other children after his death but on the 1900 census she states that she only had one child, making Eliza and George someone else's children. Again, thinking maybe they are the children of close relatives, I looked at Leroy's brothers. Thinking that these two kids would be with their parents, if living, the only brother who might have had a wife that died and needed a relative to keep the babies is William. William's wife Martha and his son David are on the Indian Rolls taken about 1850?? and I have her dying @1851, though she might have remarried and they took another last name and that's why they seem to have dissappeared."

Notes for CAROLINE BRADLEY:
..... Eliza Tiner, born 1849 from Sand Mountain, Alabama, is in the household of Lewis J Tyner, s/o of Leroy and Caroline Tyner in the DeKalb Co, Alabama census.
In 1870 Lewis is in Lincoln Co, with wife, daughter Mary, mother Caroline, and George [age 17].
"Her grandmother once told me that her G-grandfather was part Indian and he fought in the war as a substitute for someone else."

531. EMALINE B. TINER (JOHN S. TYNER, DEMPSEY, WILLIAM, WILLIAM, SARAH, NICHOLAS) was born December 04, 1821 in Rhea County, Tennessee, USA, and died December 01, 1891 in Dade County, Georgia, USA. She married ISAAC K. BURKHART Abt. 1851 in Rhea County, Tennessee, USA, son of FREDERICK BURKHART. He was born Abt. 1808 in Rhea County, Tennessee, USA, and died Abt. 1882 in Morganville, Dade, Georgia, USA.

Notes for EMALINE B. TINER:
Notes from Dempsey Tyner and Descendants by Ray Bryon Womack
Indian Claim #20425, filed by William H. Burkett - Burkhart, states that a John Tyner & Racheal Rider are parents of his mother Emaline Tyner, who is said to be one fourth Cherokee blood born, born and raised in Rhea Co., TN. This information was sworn to by one John H. Mulky, witness for the applicant and knowledgeable of John Tyner.
Notes on John Tyner's Family came from Family Group Sheet provided by James W. Russell- Tyner Researcher. He said his data was based on Bible records of Stephen Jackson Tyner/Tiner and DeKalb Co., Alabama marriage records, and US Census.

Family oral history supports the case that it was a common law marriage.

Ray Bryan Womack's notes on Isaac Burkett/Burkhart as of 1996:

..... (He was not listed in 1880 census, but wife Emaline was head of household,he was listed in 1870 census, Trenton, Dade Co., Ga., next door to son Anderson). Surname of family was spelled Burkett instead of Burkhart. List of children of Isaac & Emaline were; Anderson born 1852, living; Caldonia (Nee Johnson) born 1854, living; Amanda (Nee Wallace) born 1856 died 1904; James born in 1860, living & Sallie (Nee Cross) born 1865, living. Listed brothers & sisters of Emaline as Sevier, Ivory & Biddie Tyner. Parents of Emaline were listed as John Tiner and Rachie (Rachel) Rider, both Cherokee Indian.
.....Story from Delia Burkhart Gass; "Nancy died after 1850 census per legend. she died in child birth and the child named "Bud", died with her. Isaac hired an Indian woman to help care for Nancy and children during pregancy, illness and eventually death. Isaac had an affair with Emmaline, the Indian woman, and she became pregnant. After Nancy's death Isaac took Emmaline as wife. A child was born 1851 named Anderson." Legend refers to a "Bud" who went north and never to be heard of again. Nancy's children were born about 2 years apart, but Anderson was about 6 years younger than his older sister Sarah born in 1845, who is surely daughter of Nancy. Emaline is buried at Sarah's Chapel, Baptist Church Cemetery, Morganville, Dade Co., Ga. Altho she has a head stone, it is about the only one in the area, others being marked by field stones. I believe Isaac is buried beside her.
..... He was in the 1850 census of Tynerville, Hamilton Co., Tn. naming his first wife, Nancy, bca 1812 Tn, son Fredrick bca 1831, Eliza bca 1833, George bca 1835, Tennesse bca 1837, Andrew bca 1839, Malinda bca 1841, Martha bca 1842 & Sarah bca 1845. It appears that Isaac had two daughters by the name of Sarah, one bca 1845 and the second bca 1866. He had a son Andrew and another Anderson, which confused me for a while, as I took them to be the same, whether Andrew or Anderson.
...... Listed in 1860 census of Dade Co., Ga. with new wife, Emaline. His daughter Martha age 16, by his first wife was still living with him. New were; Anderson age 9 yrs, Florida age 7 yrs, Amanda age 5 yrs, and William age 2 yrs.
.....In the publication of DADE COUNTY GEORGIA MARRIAGE RECORDS 1866-1888; There is a marriage # 568 of Vannie Burkhart to John H. M. Lee, 4 Jan 1888.

Following is an article that appeared in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram around 1939 concerning Martha Adelia Tyner McDonald and her sister. (Ivory's & Elizabeth' s daughter)
FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM
APPROXIMATE DATE 1939
"Sisters Recall Rich Tarrant Crops in '70s"
.....Such abundant corn crops that there were not enough barns and sheds to take care of them, and cotton crops that averaged a bale to an acre made Tarrant County a land of promise fulfilled to farmers from Georgia in the seventies.
.....These rich harvests are among the memories of Mrs. Martha McDonald, Fort Worth, and her sister, Mrs. Julia Myrick, Mineral Wells, cherish of their childhood spent on a farm near Smithfield. Mrs. McDonald was five years old and her sister was nine when their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ivory Tyner moved to Texas in 1871 from Chickamauga, Ga. To the two little girls every stage of the trip was highly exciting, especially after they took a boat at New Orleans to go to Galveston. From Galveston they went to Dallas by train, and at Dallas they got wagons to finish their trip. Both sisters say they still remember the awe with which they watched the sun go down the evening they landed in Smithfield, and realized that they were at last really "out West".
Buffalo Farther West
.....Buffalo herds still were plentiful farther west, but there were none in Tarrant County. There were many herds of deer in the section for a number of years, Mrs. McDonald recalls. Wolves were numerous and very bold, even coming to the house and catching lambs that had been placed inside the yard fence.
..... Along with the plentiful crops and rich cotton yield there were hard years. In 1875 there came a plague of grasshoppers. Not a sprig of green was left anywhere when the clouds of grasshoppers moved on, Mrs. McDonald says, adding, "they even ate great holes in our sunbonnets, when we dared venture outside." And still vivid is their memories of the total eclipse of the sun, in 1877.
.....Last Summer Mrs. Myrick and Mrs. McDonald visited the site of their old home in Georgia on the edge of the Chickamauga battle ground. Often in their Texas frontier farm home they had heard their mother tell of the preparations for the battle, and how she had been warned to take her family to safety before the battle began.
Four of Family Living
..... There are four members of the Tyner family living. The oldest son, J. W. Tyner, 82, now lives in Mangum, Okla., and a younger brother, (unreadable) Tyner, lives in Wichita Falls. Mrs. McDonald makes her home with a daughter, Mrs. E. E. Lewis at 2302 Lincoln Avenue, and Mrs. Myrick lives on a farm close to Mineral Wells.

Children of IVORY TINER and ELIZABETH GORDON are:
.....i......LOUISA CORNELIA TYNER, b. Abt. 1846, Georgia, USA.
.....ii......GREENBERRY TYNER, b. Abt. 1848, Georgia, USA.

.....x......MINNIE TYNER, b. July 01, 1869, Georgia, USA.
.....xi......JAMES L. TYNER, b. Abt. 1872, Georgia, USA. That's all we know. Some trees marry him to ANNIE M. MAY, but that James L. Tyner was born in Texas. Some change him to James Irwin Tyner or James Erwin Tyner and have him marry MATILDA FARROW and died in Wilmington, New Hanover, North Carolina, after pausing in Georgia for the 1910 census, but the census shows that man as born in 1877. Since John’s obituary mentions a younger brother in Wichita, maybe this is he:

In the Matter of the Claim of Mrs. Ellena Parker and Mrs. Elizabeth NicholsEt Al For Citizenship in The Indian Territory Cherokee Nation. Mrs. Caroline A. Rogers sworn deposes and says:
I am (70) seventy years old. I am a resident of Logan County, Arkansas. I was raised in Hamilton County, Tennessee. I lived in Tennessee until I was33 years of age, when I moved to this part of Arkansas and have resided hereever since. I am well acquainted with Newton J. Hibbs, (who now lives at Paris, Arkansas) the father of Mrs. Ellena Parker and Mrs. Elizabeth Nichols both of whom now live at Paris, Logan County, Arkansas and for whom, together with their father, this deposition or affidavit, is taken insupport of their claim for Citizenship in the Indian Territory Cherokee Nation. I was well acquainted with Mr. Newton J. Hibbs in Tennessee and have been acquainted and have known him ever since he has been in Arkansas. I knew Mr. Hibbs' father and mother well. My father bought the first land that he owned, in Tennessee, from Mr. Newton J. Hibbs' father. Mr. Newton J.Hibbs' Mother (the grandmother of Mrs. Ellena Parker and Elizabeth Nichols) was a daughter of Dempsey T!iner. Mr. Dempsey Tiner claimed to be a Cherokee Indian and he was taken and so accepted by all the people who knew him to be Indian. He (DempseyTiner) looked like an Indian in stature and his general make up, and he had the characteristics of an Indian. The mother of Mr. Hibbs looked and acted like the Indian and had all the general make up of the Indian. I remember on one occasion of her swimming the Tennessee River. I knew Mr. Dempsey Tiner well. I saw him often, he lived on my father's farm, just a little way from my father's house for 5 or six years, and I staid a good deal at Mr. Tiner's house. Mr. Dempsey Tiner (father of Mr.Hibbs' mother) had one son that I knew well, a Louis Tiner. He had other sons but I was not acquainted with them, they having moved to Alabama. Louis Tiner was Mr. Newton J. Hibbs' uncle. Mr. Louis Tiner had several sons: John Tiner, Hiram Tiner, Jackson Tiner, Louis Tiner and Jessie or Jess Tiner (the youngest). These Tiners are first cousins to Mrs. Hibbs. The father of Mrs. Parker and Nichols. John Tiner, now lives at Prairie View, Arkansas. Jess Tiner now lives in the Cherokee Nation Indian Territory near Webbers Falls or Illinois Station, I.T. I do not know when or what became of the other Tiner Bro's. Mr. Newton J. Hibbs had several brothers and sisters. I knew Lee, King, Jess, Love, and Dempsey Hibbs, brother's of Mr. Newton J Hibbs. I do not know where these Hibbs are. I heard my son say that Jess Hibbs was in the Cherokee Nation. The Hibbs I have mentioned and the Tiners are cousins and are all Grandsons of old Grandpa Dempsey Tiner. I am in no way related to Mr. Hibbs or his daughters Mrs. Parker and Nichols nor am I interested in the prosecution of this claim.

Name: John Ward
Post Office: Chickasha, Oklahoma

Date of Birth: December 23, 1858
Place of Birth: Boggy Depot
Father: Sam WARD
Information on Father: born New York buried at Limestone Gap, Oklahoma

Information on Mother: born Cherokee Nation.
1/2 degree Cherokee and buried at Atoka, Oklahoma
Field Worker: Thad SMITH, Jr.
...I was born in the Choctaw Nation, at Boggy Depot in 1858, where my father, Sam WARD, was a carpenter and he built a store building and a gin run by horse power for Jonathan NAIL, a Choctaw Indian at the ford, on Blue River. My father ran the store and gin for Mr. NAIL, and had his goods freighted by wagon and or team from Baxter Springs, Kansas. The freighters would load their wagons with the hides of coons, panthers, wild cats, deer and cows in June and start to Baxter Springs, Kansas, where, after the hides were sold, the freighters would buy for the store. The freighters usually returned home the latter part of September. Seven yoke of oxen were worked to each wagon.
...My father owned thirty-five negroes whom he had farming, raising cotton, corn and wheat. The wheat was ground into flour by rocks at the water mill, and used at home, but the cotton, after being ginned there, was freighted to market at Fort Smith, Arkansas.
...My father bought his wooden beam turning plow at Baxter Springs, Kansas, and used a Georgia Stock to cultivate with.
...There were lots of Indians living near Boggy Depot who had cattle, horses and hogs. The stock was all wild, especially the hogs (some of them were mule footed). The hogs were ear marked and turned loose to rustle for themselves. There were lots of acorns and pecans which the hogs ate and got fat on.
...All of the Indians lived in mud chinked log houses which had mud and stick fireplaces, and most of them had dirt floors. Some of them had puncheon floors, or floors made of split logs, the flat side of the logs turned up. All of the houses were roofed with homemade red oak shingles which were eight or ten inches wide and about eighteen inches long.
...There was a log schoolhouse at Boggy Depot for Indians, also a Presbyterian church. Governor WRIGHT, a fullblood Choctaw Indian, who had been educated in the East, preached every Sunday. He preached both in his native tongue and in English.
...My mother dried lots of beef and deer meat in the summer and after the meat had stayed in the sun three or four days, and was completely dry, it was put into a sack and hung up for later use. My mother used the dried beef to make hash by pounding it up in a mortar with a pestle, and putting onions with it. This made a very delicious dish when cooked.
...My mother made my clothes. First she carded the cotton or wool and spun it into thread, and then wove it into cloth. She dyed the cloth with water that had had black walnut bark boiled in it. The color of the cloth after being boiled in this water was brown.
...My father fought in the Civil War, and during the War he returned home and sold his negroes, thinking that the South might lose their fight.
...When he returned home, after the War was over, he settled down at Boggy Depot and stayed until 1868, then he moved to Wardville, (which was named after my father) taking a large herd of cattle with us.
...After the War the Indians got some of the flint lock rifles, used in the Army. They were excellent shots with them, and could and did kill squirrels with them.
...In 1876, when I was eighteen years old I made a trip to Kansas with a herd of cattle belonging to Sam COATES, a Texas cowman. Sam WISE, George LUCKY and Billy the kid were working for Mr. COATES and helped to move the herd to Kansas. John STRICKLEY was Mr. COATES' foreman.
...Occasionally some Comanche Indians would stampede our herd at night, where this happened we would always lose a few head of cattle which the Indians would gather up and eat.
...I went to Texas with Mr. COATES' cow outfit and worked until 1881, then returned to the Indian Territory.
...While my father was living at Boggy Depot he made salt at a place a mile or two south of town at the old salt works. There was a water well there that was very salty. Father had some big kettles which he boiled the salty water in. He made, or rather had the salt made the year around and he sold it for $3.00 per bushel.
...In 1882, I went to work for W. M. DUNN, a big cattle rancher, near Boggy Depot. His cattle brand was WD branded on the left side.
...In the spring Mr. DUNN would send out three wagons, each in different direction, to work the country for his cattle, as the country was open then and there were no fences except some fences around small horse pastures.
...We worked the country as far as one hundred miles away from the headquarter of the ranch, as sometimes the cattle would drift that far, especially if we had had a hard winter.
...In 1883, I married and Mr. DUNN boarded my wife and me and gave me $20.00 a month for work. I worked for him until 1900. I raised five boys and one girl, while there and educated them all at Atoka.
...While my father, a white man, married my mother at Boggy Depot in the Choctaw Nation, my mother was one-half degree Cherokee, which made me a quarter blood Cherokee and entitled me to an allotment, but because I had not gone to the Cherokee Nation to get my land I failed to get any.
...My only schooling was a two month term, I attended at Atoka, when I was twelve or fourteen years old.

...My father built most of the bridges and water mills in this part of the county. He built and operated the toll bridge here at Atoka and also had the stage line station here.
...We lived at Boggy Depot first and then moved here. My father died when I was a young man, but I was old enough to help around the stage line station and at the bridge.
...I remember at one time when the stage coach was within a mile of Atoka, coming from the west, that Cole YOUNGER and his band held it up, killed the driver, robbed the mail sacks, took the best horses and rode away, leaving the dead man lying in the road.
...A few hours afterward the news of the robbery was reported to my father and he and I went to the scene of the tragedy. My father took the body of the dead man to the stage station, but before the man could be buried, Father had to get the news to Fort Smith, Arkansas, and as there were no telephones or telegraphs, he had to ride horseback there and back. He was told by the officers at Fort Smith to bury the man on the spot on which he was killed. There was no cemetery at Atoka at that time.
...Father died and I took his place as best I could. This was still a wild country and we people who wanted law and order had our hands full.
...Men such as Cyrus KINGBURY, Allen WRIGHT, W. J. HASKINS, Curran BALL, Alfred WRIGHT, Cyrus BYINGTON and many others were among the real builders of Oklahoma.
...HASKINS gained notice by capturing a liquor plant in the mountains near Atoka. This was a very important capture because the plant was so large and the men operating it were so influential with their own class that the capture nearly ended the making of liquor in the mountains near Atoka.
...HASKINS was also head of the Police Department of Atoka and did more to enforce the liquor laws than any other one person connected with the law in this part of the country.
...The first church bell ever brought to this country was one bought by the Masons and used in their hall at Boggy Depot. The bell was shipped to Kansas City and had to be hauled in a wagon from there to Boggy Depot. My father furnished the oxen to haul the bell with. It took two yoke of oxen to make the trip. After the lodge was dissolved at Boggy Depot, the bell was given to the Indian Baptist Church at Standing Rock. I do not know where the bell is now.
...Standing Rock is eight miles west of Atoka in Atoka County.
...There was a ferryboat on the Delaware River or creek where it runs into Boggy Creek about a mile north of Boggy Creek.
...The ferryboat was operated when the water was low by poles, but when the water was high, we used a cable to pull the boat across.
...There was an Indian ceremonial ground at Black Gum Springs where the Indians met for councils and for other ceremonies.
...Black Gum Springs are located about four miles south of Boggy Depot in Atoka County. There was also an Indian mission call Black Jack House. This place is about two miles west of Tushka in Atoka County.
...Nearly all my life has been spent in Oklahoma. I was a cowboy and helped to drive cattle to Caldwell, Kansas, and to other shipping points. I drove cattle with "Bill the Kid" before he became a desperado. I knew the TURNBULL outlaws, the DALTONs and all the others who roamed this country at that time. I never had any trouble with any of them but have befriended them often.
...I have been a stockman and farmer, too. At one time I had twenty-one hundred head of cattle at Wardville.
...Oklahoma has surely had a career but it was not true that the Territory was filled with renegades and outlaws. People who settled here were of good substantial stock who were just trying to better their condition in a new country.

...A stage robbery happened in Atoka County in 1867 in which Fred NICKOLDS, the stage driver was killed. There were no other passengers riding on the stage coach at the time this robbery and killing happened.
,,,The location of this place is now in Sec. 21 NE 1/4, NW 1/4, T2S, R11E, one and a half miles southwest of Atoka, where the Fort Smith and Boggy Depot Freight and Stage line crossed the creek. This crossing was named Dead Man's Crossing, and a man of the name of Billy SHIELDS and his gang were supposed to have done the robbing and killing. Jim DAVIS and John WARD's father and other[s] buried the man near the place where he was killed.
...After receiving order from the court located at Fort Smith, Arkansas, a posse of United States Deputy Marshals, led by one whose nick name was "Negro" SMITH from Fort Smith, came to Atoka for the purpose of capturing this gang of killers and robbers. They met these men near Atoka and had a gun battle with this robber gang in which one of this gang got shot through the leg. They brought him to Atoka, had his leg dressed and left him in a small empty house near my father's blacksmith shop, and my father had me carry cold water to this man and keep the bandage around his leg, and keep his wound damp.
...That evening, about dark, three men rode up to the door of this small house and called out to this man and asked him if he was able to ride horseback; he answered, "Yes". They put him on a horse in the middle in front of one of the men and rode off in the dark. If the United States men ever arrested them I have no knowledge of it. One of these men gave me a $10.00 gold piece for my service in taking care of this man who was shot during the day.
...The grave where the stage driver was buried is still visible.

In another source from Judith Rittenhouse, Pvt. Tyner tells of his experiences which were typed up for publication in a book. Although he is called "Captain Tyner" here it is because of his years of being a Captain on steamboats on the rivers. Chapter XVII: Old Times on the Upper Cumberland Chapter XXXVIII by Douglas Anderson. "Tyner's Reminiscences." Captain J. S. Tyner writes of old days on the river as follows, "I was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee in the year 1847 and took to the water like a duck when very young. My first steamboating was in the year 1858 on the steamer Little Tennessee (Capt. Jack Doss, Master) plying between Chattanooga and Knoxville. The following year, 1858, Captain Tom Ryman, then only 15 years old, employed me to go with him to his fishing boat which was lying at the mouth of Chickamauga Creek where the great battle by that name was fought later...
....."After fishing around Chickamauga Creek for several months we dropped down to Shell Mound, Alabama, on the Tennessee River. It was while we were at Shell Mound that war was declared between the North and the South. I enlisted in the war and went to Camp Cummins at Knoxville and afterwards was stationed at Cumberland Gap during the Summer. While stationed at Cumberland Gap our regiment, which was the 19th Tennessee, went through into Kentucky to the salt works and brought back 90 wagon loads of salt. Late in fall of 1861 we came through to Mill Springs where we put up winter quarters of logs and boards, and in the Spring following the Union soldiers were encroaching on us, so we went out to Fishing Creek to stop them. Instead of stopping them, they drove us back to our winter quarters at Mill Spring.
....."In our retreat to our winter quarters it was necessary to cross the river and the sergeant came around during the night and made it plain that it was also necessary to be quiet about it otherwise we would be heard and captured. I was drummer boy at the time and they would not even allow me to bring my drums. A little later I was glad of this for it was hard for me to pull through the mud myself. At this time a Capt. Spillers, who was in charge of a calvary company, had taken possession of the steamer Noble Ellis which had come there with a load of supplies for the army. This cavalry company was made up in part of experienced steamboat men so Capt. Spillers took charge of the boat that night and agreed to ferry us all over provided he was permitted to take his cavalry horses across on the first trip. This was agreed to and the cavalry horses and soldiers were ferried across, but a number of artillery horses and heavy artillery were captured by the Union forces. After ferrying us across the river this boat was fired by the Confederates and drifted down the river sinking, I believe at the head of Forbush Island, and her engines are lying on the bank there, or were a few years go.
....."I got my discharge from the army just after the Battle of Shiloh. The discharge was given me on account of disability and youthful age. I returned home to Chattanooga and never felt physically able to re-enlist..."

State of Tennessee. Hamilton County. Chattanooga
5. What was your occupation before the war?:
Before the war I was too young to engage in anything as to work, more than chors about home and going to school.
6. What was the occupation of your father?:
He was a --Tayler (struck through)--tailor by trade. Some times lived and worked on the farm.
7. If you owned land or other property at the opening of the war, state what kind of property you owned, and state the value of your property as near as you can:
No I owned no land or property
8. Did you or your parents own slaves? If so, how many?:
He father, did not, neither my mother.
9. If your parents owned land, state about how many acres:
No, my parents did not own lands.
10. State as near as you can the value of all the property owned by your parents, including land, when the war opened:
No, my parents rented a farm, or a home in the town of Chattanooga
11. What kind of house did your parents occupy? State whether it was a log house or frame house or built of other materials, and state the number of rooms it had:
My parents rented a home of 3 or 4 or 5 rooms, a neat frame, a gar-den that all attended at different times.
12. As a boy and young man, state what kind of work you did. If you worked on a farm, state to what extent you plowed, worked with a hoe, and did other kinds of similar work:
As a boy I went to school, helped with the home work, did not plow or hoe very much. Yes I remember the white men did their own work that had no help as servants. Not every man owned Negros and they were not afraid or ashamed to do honest work of any kind.
13. State clearly what kind of work your father did, and what the duties of your mother were. State all the kinds of work done in the house as well as you can remember - that is, cooking, spinning, weaving, etc.
My father worked at his trade a tailor, but when not busy There would haul & cut wood for home use, work garden & all all work needed that he could do. The duties of mother were those of all good housekeepers & caretakers of a family of children she had cords and wheel & did cord & spin wool & cotton into thread for home use. She had no loom as to my recollection.
14. Did your parents keep any servants? If so, how many?:
No, they kept no servants, did their own work unless in sickness, then they had outside help.
15. How was honest toil -as plowing, hauling and other sorts of honest work of this class - regarded in your community? Was such work considered respectable and honorable?:
As far as I remember, honest toil, as farm work, hauling, digging, painting and general labor, was considered respectable and honor-able in the sight of all men and communities. We had honest, good people as far as 1 remember at that time
16. Did the white men in your community generally engage in such work?:
Yes, if they had no help of their own. We who owned no servants did not hesitate to work at anything.
17. To what extent were there white men in your community leading lives of idleness and having others do their work for them?:
As far as I could tell very few men lived in idleness for perhaps they were not able to have others do their work for them.
18. Did the men who owned slaves mingle freely with those who did not own slaves, or did slaveholders in any way show by their ac-tions that they felt themselves better than respectable, honorable men who did not own slaves?:
As well as 1 remember, the men who owned slaves mixed with those that had no slaves. All seemed on an equal. 1 was young and such things did not interest me very much then. Sometimes I have heard the women folks say of some other women, "Oh, she is stuck up because she has a negro."
19. At the churches, at the schools, at public gatherings in general, did slaveholders and non-slaveholders mingle on a footing of equality?:
Yes, I think at churches and schools all were equal unless when it came to paying the Preacher and Teachers, as tis now in this day and time. Some people felt a little better than a poor neighbor if they had slaves and property but sensible persons were equal.
20. Was there a friendly feeling between slaveholders and non-slaveholders in your community, or were they antagonistic to each other?:
As far as I know or remember the slave holder and the non-slave hol-der were on good terms and peacably inclined.
21. In a political contest in which one candidate owned slaves and the other did not, did the fact that one candidate owned slaves help him in winning the contest?
expect the fact of a candidate owning slaves, may have had some effect as to helping in the contest. I remember of having big bar-baques during the times of elections.
22. Were the opportunities good in your community for a poor young man -honest and industrious - to save up enough to buy a small farm or go in business for himself?:
Well as far as I know or remember it would have taken some time and toil for a poor young man to save enough to buy a farm for some of them had to take trade for their labor. Money was not so plentiful as in our present times.
23. Were poor, honest, industrious young men, who were ambitious to make something of themselves, encouraged or discouraged by slaveholders?:
I dont remember enough to know of such things then of the encour-agement toward ambitious young men that wanted to make something of themselves.
24. What kind of school or schools did you attend?:
I attended the district school or the town school as was sometimes called. The schools were only short terms, from 3 to 6 months as far as 1 can remember.
25. About how long did you go to school altogether?:
I think my schooling all together was not more than 3 or perhaps 4 years or less.
26. How far was it to the nearest school?:
As far as I can remember the nearest was perhaps ¼ mile then I have gone near 1\ or 3 miles to school from morning till near sun-down or in time to get home for feeding.
27. What school or schools were in operation in your neighborhood?:
I attended the town schools and my teachers in one school was a Mrs. Fyfe, Miss Mary Green and Mr. and Mrs. McBath. An incident I will remember while at Mr. McBaths for talking in school.

He married (1) MARTHA J. SHIELDS Abt. 1852 in McDonald County, Missouri. He married (2) MARY EVELYN SHIELDS Abt. 1860 in McDonald County, Missouri.

Notes for DEMPSEY TYNER LAUDERDALE:
Demsey Tiner Lauderdale died from complications with the flu which he contracted during the Civil War. He was a Captain. Confederate Soldier, 16th Regiment, Missouri Infantry. He was ill during much of his time in service to the Confederacy. His widow then married his best friend, a man named Andrew Jackson Testerman. Prior to the war, they were Lodge brothers. He raised Dempsey's children, as well as having several children of his own.

Alternate name found in GEDCOM file: Dempsey Tyner /Lauderdale/ Born about 1838. He was a sheriff for eight years and served as a captain in the confederate army. Was a master mason. Apparently was a surveyor by trade. Died just after the Civil War of pneumonia. This information was gathered from the book "The Lauderdales of America". I found additional information on Dempsey in the old Mc Donald County court records. He died about 1865. His widow Mary E. remarried in 1866 to an A.J. Testerman. Dempsey was also known by his initials D.T. and from the accounts that I was able to gather from many sources including the History of McDonald County, was on his way to being an individual of some importance when the Civil War came along and shortened his life. Accounts of the day called him Dempsey Thomas Lauderdale.

Dempsey T. Lauderdale was indeed a member of Yancy Lodge No. 148 in Pineville, Mo. He first appeared on the 1858 Annual Return as Senior Deacon. He then served as Junior Deacon in 1859 and as Senior Warden in 1860. Lauderdale's name then disappears from the Lodge roster, but his death is recorded in Grand Lodge records as being on 12/13/1863. Unfortunately, there is no mention of his death in Yancy 148's records, so we are unable to tell where he might have been buried. Yancy Lodge was arrested by the Grand Master of Missouri in 1884, and so there are no Lodge minutes in existence from which we might obtain that information. I regret that I can't help you further, but wish you luck with your search.
Sincerely,

I was not enrolled by the Dawes Commission. I did not make application. I do not know why we were not enrolled. My father and my grandfather were white men. I got my Indian blood through my mother and she was a Cherokee. I think she was at least a quarter-blood. She has been dead 16 years. She came out west with me. She was not enrolled in 1851. I do not know whether she was enrolled in 1835 or 1851. I never hear her say she was. Her name was Nancy Latty. Her maiden name was Latty and she married a Latty. She was never known by any other name. Her mother was Francis Scott; She married John Latty. I have no brothers or sisters living. My brothers and sisters were William Latty; he lived in Arkansas. Another was Fleming Latty; I have never hear hi him since the war ended. He did not come West. James and Ellis Latty were two more brothers. There were none of them enrolled. William tried for a right with the Dawes Commission but never got it. They probably had no Indian names. My mother had a host of brothers and sisters. One of her sisters were enrolled. Her name was Sarah Webb, nee Latty. She told me that she was enrolled. She was not known by any other name. I do not know where she was living at the time of her enrollment. She always remained East of the Mississippi. Her husband was ill and they could not come west.

He lived in Missouri and also in the Territory after the war. I don’t know that he did not live in the Territory before the war. Wash Latty was my mother’s brother and Diver was his son’s name. He lived in the Territory Uncle Wash died in time of the war. I have seen my Uncles (526, 528 Saline.) The Indians were the only kind of people that I used to associate with when I was little. The Cherokees were the only Indians I knew anything about. My mother’s mother name was Francis Scott. She had a brother John Scott; there was an Abraham Scott but I do not know whether he was a brother. My two uncles’ came out when the Indians were brought here.

Rejected. Applicant born in 1835 or '51 and never heard of Hester. There is a LEWIS TYNER on the 35 roll, but though a large family not one appears on the 51 roll. See Misc. Test, p. 760. "Applicant born in 1831 and not enrolled either."
[Handwritten notation after summary]
MISC. TEST. P. 760. No 11631 - FANNY KIRKSEY:
"I am 76 years of age; was born in Hamilton County, Tenn.; have lived my life in Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama. I claim Cherokee Indian blood. I have always been told this by my folks. I claim this through my father. He lived in Hamilton County, Tenn. I have never received any Indian money from the government and never tried to get any prior to this time. My father never received any Indian money that I know of. My father lived with the Indians when I was small. I do not know if my father knew the Indian language, but he may have. My father was a farmer. In 1852 I lived in Hamilton County, Tenn. I did not hear of the Indian payment at that time nor of Chapman. I never heard of Hester, the enrolling agent. None of my relatives ever received any Indian money. My brother, J. L. TYNER , was given a claim by the Dawes Commission. This was in 1897. His children are living in the Cherokee Nation at the present time. BEN TYNER, is my nephew and lives at Campbell Station, Oklahoma. ULYSSES TYNER lives at the same place. My brother wrote to me after receiving his claim and said he would help me if I would go out there. He went to the Nation in 1876. I neglected to go to the Nation until my brother's death and then did not care to go. My father was a recognized white man and a voter."
"This applicant had a brother named LOUIS TYNER who was born in 1826. The name LOUIS TYNER appears on the 1835 roll as being 7 years of age."

EXCEPTION CASE. Admitted. Total number of exceptions filed in this group -
1. Applicant is the aunt of FANNIE CUMMINS, who filed application #1963 and is enrolled as #9008, and both claim through LEWIS TYNER who was enrolled as an Eastern Cherokee in 1835.

AGED LADY DEAD AT SULPHUR SPRINGS
...Mrs. Fannie Kirksey, aged 85, died at the home of her son, Eugene Kirksey, on Sand Mountain, near Sulphur Springs, Ga., yesterday morning. She had been in feeble health for some time. Interment was made Monday near Sulphur Springs.
...Besides the son with whom she lived she leaves other children as follows: Mrs. W.A. Chadwick of Whitwell, Tenn., Wash Kirksey, of Sulphur Springs, Ga., Frank Kirksey, residing in Missouri, and Misses Mary, Isabelle, Florence and Mat Kirksey of Sulphur Springs, Ga. Her husband died many years ago, and the family was one of the pioneer families of the section.

Notes for GEORGE WASHINGTON KIRKSEY:
George Washington Kirksey is buried in the Smith Chapel Cemetery, DeKalb county, Alabama, located taking road 140 from the north end of DeKalb County to the top of Sand Mountain, continue another three miles or so until coming to county road 788. Turn right on 788, and go about 1 1/2 miles to Calvary Church. Turn onto county road 785, a dirt road, next to the church and go about 3/4 mile to the end of the road. You will be at Smith Chapel Church and Cemetery. Smith Chapel Cemetery many years ago was also known as the Panell Cemetery but is known in the Kirksey family as the Kirksey Cemetery since so many Kirksey's are buried there. George Washington Kirksey, was the first person to be buried in the Smith Chapel Cemetery. He is listed in 1931 papers as living in Chattanooga before the Civil War and after moved to DeKalb County , Alabama. In a letter from Donald Kirksey, George Washington Kirksey is stated to have denied a Commission of Captain with the Yankee side. General Sherman on his famous "March to the Sea" had done much damage to the GWK farm. Since George Washington Kirksey was Justice of the Peace at the time he got all of the towns people together, they took down the American flag and seceded from the Union. In 1946, the county rejoined the United States. His daughters Mary, Talitha, Florence & Martha were said to have been taken into the wilderness in Alabama where they lived on Sand Mt. ,near Sulphur Springs, during the Civil War.

Notes for JAMES FRANKLIN KIRKSEY:
WALKER COUNTY MESSENGER of LaFayette, xzGeorgia:
COUPLE ELOPED
"Lookout and Sand Mountain Tragedy, 125 pounds stolen and their escapes."

..... "There was quite a sensation created throughout the whole Upper Cove on the morning of the 4th on account of the strange disappearance of Miss Mary Jane McDaniel." "It appears that one Frank Kirksey of Sand Mountain met Miss Mary on Lookout Mountain at the grand picnic dance, 4th July, 1883. He there secretly vowed to make her his own. Things, however, went on quietly until this winter when his visits came often and the people were unable to account for his business until it suddenly appeared he was courting."
..... " The day was finally set, being the memorable 4th of March, but her father seriously objected, so it was agreed her brother should steal her the night before. Kirksey, accompanied by another man, arrived at the spot by dark, but she was detained by another suitor until a late hour and did not get off until 2 o'clock, when she crept out of the house unheard by her father and walked on the mountain with her lover."
..... "The nest morning when her other brother went to wake her for breakfast, he only found a pillow covered up to fool them. The father immediately took his gun and followed them, but the bird had flown too far to be captured. He returned desolate and heart broked, and should have the sympathy of his neighbors."
BRIDE IN HER TEENS

....." Kirksey is tall and prominent; has a firm, resolute brow. He is brave and courageous and is though to be a man of wonderful stability of character and has a handsome income. Miss McDaniel is a beautiful little brunette. She was a noted dancer and was as graceful a figure as ever mortal had. She is about 14 years old and is the only daughter of Green and Michael McDaniel. It is said she (pieced here) her senior, but he has won that which others would have died for.
..... "The Kirkseys laughingly corrected a few items in the account of their wedding. The first place she denies "four engagements." Furthermore the bride was nearly two years older than the age given in the Georgia newspaper account, while her husband is only nine years her senior. The young couple settled on a farm, but not far from her parents and parental forgiveness was soon forthcoming."
PREACHER PAID WITH MOLASSES

..... " Mr. Kirksey was a farmer in Georgia at the time of the wedding and he paid the preacher who married them with molasses."
..... "Mr. and Mrs. Kirksey moved to Missouri in December 1892, and settled in a farm in Lawrence County, Missouri, about two miles northwest of their present home. They moved to the farm where they now live on October 1898, and have lived there since. Eleven children were born to the couple. The eight now living are C.P. Kirksey, and Fred Kirksey of Idaho Falls, Idaho; William T. Kirksey of Los Angeles, Calif,; Jesse F. (Jim) Kirksey and Mrs. J.W. McMichael of Carthage;Beulah G. Kirksey of Springfield; Finnis W. Kirksey of Sarcoxie, Route 2 and Mrs. H.C. Youngblood of Jasper Route 1."
.....vi......ELLEN AMANDA KIRKSEY, b. May 19, 1865, DeKalb County, Alabama; d. July 20, 1892, DeKalb County, Alabama; m. GALLEY HAMRIC.
.....vii......FLORENCE MISSOURI KIRKSEY, b. October 18, 1867, DeKalb County, Alabama; d. May 1950, Sand Mountain, Dekalb County, Alabama. Never married.

" I am about 79 years of age. I was born in Roane Co., but I don't know the state. It was in the East. Applicant gets his Indian blood through his father, Lewis Tyner. He died in 1876. He was born in the East. He left the East in 1850. Lewis Tyner was my husband and he was a Cherokee Indian. He was enrolled in 1851 but I don't know whether he drew money or not. In coming West we stopped in Missouri, but came to the Territory in 1874. I think that Lewis Tyner was a quarteroon. Lewis was born in 1800. I was married to Lewis in Hamilton County, Tenn., when we were married. He lived in Alabama before he moved to Tennessee. Reuben and Nathan Tyner were brothers of Lewis. He had another brother who died in the Chicksaw Nation. His name was Jesse and he married a Chicksaw woman. Reuben and one of the other boys came out West as far as Arkansas with the Old Settlers and then moved to this state. Lewis' oldest child, John, was born in 1819. I am the second wife of Lewis. He was separated from his first wife and she moved to Arkansas with some of their children. Reuben died before we came West in 1850. Hiram was a child of my husband by his first wife. His oldest son was named Reuben. I think he was born in about 1845-he was old enough to be in the Civil War. Susan Tyner is the name of my oldest child and she was born in 1850. I am sure that we came in 1850. I never heard that my husband was enrolled. Never made an affidavit that he was enrolled. I never heard of him ever receiving any land or money from the government. My husband has always been recognized as a Cherokee Indian. My children have never associated with any other tribe of Indians than the Cherokees."

"A copy of the decision of the case of Jesse L. Tyner vs. the Cherokee Nation for allotment of land shows that they were rejected by the Dawes Commission for the reason that the ancestors through whom he claims was never enrolled. There is a paper annexed purporting to be a copy of the decision of Judge Springer on appeal reversing the decision of the Commission and allowing an allotment. However, the Sec. of the Interior states that the original copy of the decision cannot be found and he would not certify to the copy as being correct. The applicant was never allowed
an allotment of land."
