Young Married Woman Meets With
Wednesday of last week Mrs. Morton Goats, a comparatively young woman living near Copeland postoffice, met with an accident that has already cost her the loss of one of her lower limbs and may yet result fatally. At the time of the accident Mrs. Goats was riding on a saw log with her husband. The team driven by Mr. Goats became unruly and tilted the wagon, causing the log to roll off. Mrs. Goats was caught beneath the log, her limb being badly broken and horribly mangled.
Several hours passed before medical aid could reach her. Dr. Hamilton, Hunter and Holloway responded to a summons and after examination found amputation of limb imperative, the operation being immediately performed. Enroute home Tuesday of this week from a Dr. Holloway stated Mrs. Goats was not doing as well as she should and that a second operation may be necessary, provided her condition improved sufficient for her to undergo the ordeal.

Ina Couch, was one of the most caring, and kindest people that ever lived. She was a caring person and would share whatever food or clothing she had with people who she knew was hungry or what ever their needs were. As a small child I can remember her giving the family milk to a neighbors baby, whose mothers did not have the means to provide for their baby. She was very active in her church activities, and the youth Sunday School was one of her greatest interest. Having young people around her was one thing that she never seemed to get tired of. She was like a magnet for all of the young people of the community. Relatives and friends would always come by our house on Sunday for dinner and friendship. We were very poor monentarily, but she always seemed to get the most out of what she had to work with. We did have all of the other good things in life that made up for what we could not buy with money.

Johannes was born in the Palatine area of Germany( Bayern Pfalz, Ilbesheim Kirchheim Bolanden, Evanglisch, Germany. He had learned the trade of blacksmith, and was of the Lutheran faith. His places of residence are listed as Germany and Pennslyvania. The following notes give account of his entrance in the United States.
On the 2nd November. 1744, the Ship "Friendship", John Mason Capt., from Rotterdam last from Cowes, landed in Philadelphia PA, where Johanes Swore an oath of allegiance to England. There is also information that he arrived with all of his family. One of his oldest sons, Johan Jacob a son from a first marriage arrived in 1738, and was already living in PA. This information was provided by Loydale Richardson Bay City,TX, 77414, and Vivian Caldwell 2676 Woodcrest Dr. Concord , NC.
[NI1739] All her children were born at Bayern Pfalz Ilbesheim Kirchheim Bolanden Evenglisch Germany. Christening and birth dates provided by LDS (German records).
[NI1741] Johan Jacob came to the U.S. in 1738 aboard the Glasgow from Rotterdam (Lowes England) and settled near Emmans PA. He was raised a Lutheran and later become a Movarian. His wife Maria Barbara Andreas came with her father to this Country in 1731, and settled near Emmaus, PA. Johan had learned the trade of backsmith. After their marriage in 1740, he settled near Magunthsche, PA. Johan Jacob is buried in the Movarian Cemetery, which is located on the grounds of the Movarian church in Emmaus, PA. My daughter Nina Petrolati has been to this cemetery and made some pictures. She indicates it is a very nice cemetery, and has a large piece of history in that part of Pennslyvania. Jacob served in the Rev war his grave in The Morvarian Cem in Emmaus has the american flag and a marker that distinguishes him a veteran soldier.

[NI1741] In 1747 Jacob Ehrenhardt and Sebastian Knauss donated to their community the land which would be named Emmaus in 1761. The name derives from the biblical account of Christ's appearance to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. This Moravian settlement has a unique history and, during the Revolutionary War, encountered an interesting problem: their teachings (and those of other religious groups in the area) forbade them to take up arms or to become involved in politics. When the Colonists decided to oust the British, the people of Emmaus would neither sign an oath severing allegiance to the king nor participate as soldiers.
[NI1741] Refusal to fight carried harsh penalties, such as fines, imprisonment, and confiscation of property. Jacob Ehrenhardt Jr. and eleven others finally relented, young Jacob serving in the 4th Battalion Company commanded by Captain Felix Good. Meanwhile, the community made its homes available to serve ill and injured Continental Troops.
[NI1741] Following the War, Jacob Jr. lived a while in Whitehall Township, married there, and then moved with his bride back to Emmaus. In 1803 he built a stone, Georgian-style house on his late father's farm. The site originally included a large barn and smaller outbuildings.
[NI1741] The house was lived in continuously by various families, until it was purchased by Robert Rodale in 1975 and donated to the community as a museum. Today it is operated by Friends of the 1803 House.
[NI1741] Visitors here will enjoy a tour back to the turn of the 18th century, exploring the rooms fumished as they may have appeared during Ehrenhardt's day. The Kitchen features a fireplace and the utensils of the day. The Living Room furnishings exhibit fine 18th century craftsmanship. The Bedrooms are upstairs and above them the attic, where a tiny handprint pressed into the old plaster may have belonged to one of Jacob's four daughters.
[NI1741] The house is representative of life in Emmaus 200 years ago. It's charming, and a Tour is fun and educational. Groups are welcome, as well as individuals and families. There are no formal School Programs. However, Museum staff will work with children and teachers to make a visit something special. Some groups have participated in an archaeological dig on the property, while others have assisted in making a house video tour.

[NI1743] In addition to the twenty-five (German) immigrants known to have landed at Philadelphia, Killen and Philip Ernhardt, ... , and probably Frederich Fischer removed to Carolina from Pennsylvania. The two Ernhardts migrated southward from the Delaware Valley. Killen Ernhardt obtained a land warrant in Northampton County, PA, in 17521, while Philip had acquired land four years earlier in Bucks County.

The available data, then, indicates that a majority of the German settlers migrated to Rowan from Lancaster and Bucks Counties in PA and from Frederick County, MD. Many ... tarried in the Shenandoah Valley. Jacob Braun removed to Carolina from Winchester, while Philip Ernhardt lived for a short time on Smith's Creek

[NI1748] Johannes Earnhardt Researched by Ruth Earnhardt GoodmanRockingham,N.C.
[NI1748] JOHANNES EARNHARDT came to this country on the 2 Nov 1744, with PHILIP on the ship "Friendship", commanded by JOHN MASON. CHRISTOF, wife KATHARINE and daughter MARIA, under 14 years of age, came to Pennsylvania in 1732, but there is not a record of them coming to North Carolina. CHRISTOF was on the tax list in 1771 of Lancaster County, Pennslyvania, Raplio Township. He was listed as having 150 acres, 3 horses, and 2 cattle. PHILIP and KILLION were in Rowan County by 1762. In 1778 there were GEORGE SR.,PHILIP SR.,PHILIP JR., HENRY, and KILLION EARNHARDT on the tax list in Rowan County . One JACOB EARNHARDT settled in North Hampton County, Pennsylvania in 1738. His daughters names were the same as GEORGE SRs daughters names. He may have been a brother to JOHANNES . All indications point to this JOHANNES, who came in-1744 as being the father of JOHN GEROGE SR. and many of the others who came to Rowan County, North Carolina/
[NI1748] The name EHRENHARDT was changed to AARONHARDT and later to EARNHARDT. EHREN means honor or respect. The Earnhardts were blacksmiths, cabinetmakers, and farmers who worked hard with their hands. Most of them were Lutherans, and the women were good cooks. The men married good cooks, and they raised large families.
[NI1748] GEORGE AND MARIA MMARETHA HEILMAN EARNHARDT (1st wife)
[NI1748] GEORGE AND-VERONICA "FRONNY" EARNHARDT (2nd wife)
GEORGE SR., Was first married to MARIA MARGARETHA HEILMAN. GEORGE AND MARGARETHA, lived in Northampton County, Pennsylvania where GEORGE was on the tax list yet in 1772. MARGARETHA died sometime after GEORGE JR. was born in 1768 and be-
fore 1773. GEORGE then married VERONICA---------------. Records of GEORGE and MARGARETHA'S children were found in Pennsylvania. Records of GEORGE and VERONICA's children are in Pennslyvania and in Notrh Carolina. Their son ANDREW was born in 1773 in Pennsylvani, Although his record is also in North Carolina/
On the 17 May 1774 GEORGE bought 511 acres in Rowan County from THOMAS FREHOCK, adjacent to PHILIP EARNHARDT. He later bought land on the South Fork of Crane Creek and on Royals Creek (near the Stanlev Coumtv line). GEORGE made a Will on the 16 June 1817 and at that time he listed his wife as "FRANNY". He also listed a dughter MARY in-the will of 1817 who is not listed in the 'will of 1823. Neither is his son ANDREW in either will. These children could have died young or there may have been other reasons for them not being mentioned. Before his 'will was made GEORGE let,daughter ELIZABETH have land on Panther Creek. He mde his last will on
7- November, 1823 and it was probated in May of 1826, in which he did not list a wife, so "FRANNY" died between 16 June 1817 and 7 November 1823.

This declarant does not recollect the distance from Middletown to Vallytown but recollects that they were led astray in their march by the pilots and the motive of the pilot for so doing as we afterwards ascertained was that his wife was in Valleytown and in to divert us from that place

The Cherokees had fled and left them in possession of the town.

This declarant said fourteen or 15 of the South Carolina troops Catawha Indians who had been wounded in the battle and the fresh graves when they had buried their dead and one in particular in which he was told there were of the white men and Catawha indians buried together. Declarant does not know the number of slain on either side. The indian powers having been broken and scattering these two engagements and our term of service being near to ended we were ordered back. Having remained in Valleytown two or three weeks. The South Carolina troops had in the meantime left the place and the

Obituary for Rev. William (Bill) Thompson as follows:
Van Buren County Democrat
Ciinton, Arkansas 1967
Rev. William M. Thompson, 54, of Caddo, Okla., husband of a Van Buren County native, died Tuesday, April 18. Funeral was Thursday at Caddo Methodist Church with graveside services at 11 a. m. Friday at Crabtree Cemetery by Rev. Kenneth Renfroe.
Rev. Thompson was born September 10, 1912, at Beebe, Ark. He entered the ministry full time in 1952 and pastored churches in Alderson, Blacher, Savannah, Vallaint and Wister, Okla., before moving to Caddo two years ago. He was married February 14, 1960 to the former Wilma Arnhart, in Wister. Other survivors include two sons, William Mark and John Phillip of the home; a brother, Vernon of ElMonte, Calif.; and two sisters, Mrs. Lloyd Bowser and Miss Elaine Thompson both of Blanchard, Okla. Burial was by North Arkansas Funeral Service.
Martin B. Arnhart an uncle, was made guardian of William Arnhart on the 3rd Monday in January, 1880.
The above information was obtained from the Van Buren Co, AR probate records bk. C page 318.
We don't know why this action was taken. We do know that his father had died, and his mother had remarried. He may have chosen to live with his uncle rather his mother and step father. I have heard stories about how his stepfather would beat him severely. I can believe these stories to be true based on information I have received from descendants of Peter Alexander Arnhart, who was a younger brother.
[NI1974] William Henry was a farmer and blacksmith by trade. He and his brother had learned the trade of blacksmith from their fathers and grandfathers. This trade goes back to the time of their immigration from Germany in 1735. Henry Arnhart was known to be a very hard worker. He would be in his fields at sun up and stay out till dark. He was considered one of the best farmers in the county.The home on his 160 acre farm was always admired by the people in the community. Through out the history of the Arnhart family there is a sense that they were all extremely hard working people. Some of the history records from where these families came from in North Carolina indicate that hard work was a way of life for all of these. My grandfather was a very quiet man he never raised his voice or showed signs of anger. He was a honest and trusted member of the community. With the limited education he had he was able to manage his farm and business in a highly professional manner. His blackshop was always availiable to all of the neighbors any time they needed help.
[NI1974] When my grandfather become very ill in the early 1940's my father brought him to live with us at our home. The last few months of his life were extremely painful for him. From what I can remember he would had to have been suffering from some form of cancer, most probably, prostate or kidney disease.
His obituary would read as follows:
W, H Arnhart called to his reward;, W. H. Arnhart age 77 died at his home near Crabtree Sunday January 12, Internment took place at the Crabtree Cemetery Monday afternoon following funeral services conducted by Rev. A. A. Noggles, assisted by Rev. Sam Patton. Mr. Arnhart familiarly known as "Uncle Henry" was a native of the county and was reared across South Fork just East of Clinton. In 1890 he was united in marriage to Miss Sallie Burgess, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Josh Burgess, pioneer citizen of the county.
To their union four children were born, Sam, John, Mattie, now Mrs. E. T. Ott and Dexter all of whom with the widow survive. Sixteen grandchildren and one great grandchild and one brother and half sister also survive.
Mr. Arnhart who has long been regarded as one of the county's best farmers, he was a good citizen,enjoying the confidence and esteem of all who knew him. He made a profession of religion and was baptized some years since and while a Methodist in belief he never joined any church organization.
[NI1974] There was one younger brother, Peter Alexander, a half brother Ben Starnes, who died in late 1930's somewhere in Okla and a half sister Eliza Bell Starnes.
[NI1974] [Scrapbook photos enclosed.]
[NI1985] My grandmother Arnhart was blind, from my earliest memory of her. I believe this may have been caused from cataracts. The term she used for describing her condition was snow eye. This would indicate she may have had cataracts. She had eye operations that never improved her condition. There was also some history of some members of the Burgess family having diabetics in their familie. This may also have been some of the problems that she had with her eyes. There was also some information that she miscarried with triplets in her earlier years. This information was passed on from some of the older grandchildren in the family.

Obituary for James Dexter Arnhart: Clayton Rites Conducted For James Arnhart. Funeral services for James D. Arnhart, 71, of Clayton were held Monday, June 5, 1972 at 1:30 p. m. in the Clayton Christ' s Church with Johnny Joslin officiating.
Arnhart was born July 24, 1900, in Crabtree, Ark. and died June 3, 1972, in Sulphur Veterans Center, Sulphur. The World War 11 veteran had lived in the Clayton community some seven years.
He is survived by his wife, Ada of the home; two sons, John Arnhart of Norman, and A. D. Arnhart of Jackson, Mo.; seven grandchildren and. five great-grandchildren. Interment was in the A. L. Stephens cemetery under the direction of Coffey Funeral Home of Antlers.
[NI2029] We are not sure of the place and time of the death of William F. Arnhart my great grandfather. We have information that he enlisted in the 8th Arkansas Calvary on 4 Mar,1863. He is listed as a Private, and enlisted at Clinton, AR. Record show that he deserted on 9th August 1863. The last time that we were able to see him on any records is the 1860 Van Buren Co AR, Census. There he was listed as a 19 year old male. By the time that the 1870 Census was taken he was already deceased. This Census lists his wife Susan age 26 with her two sons Henry age 8 and Peter age 5. Henry was born on November 7,1863,and Peter was born on March 12 186. There is some information that he died when his youngest son Peter was about 6 mo old. This would put his death ca. August/September 1866. We believe if he died during that time period he would most likely be buried on his fathers homestead along with his mother and some other members of Jacob's family. We also believe that he may have died as a result of the war from some unknown reason. Although there is no record what happened to him after he deserted. He did have two older brothers that served in this war one was in the Union Army, 3rd Arkansas Calvary,and one of the brothers was also in a Confederate unit the 10th Arkansas Calvary. It is hard to understand how a family could cope with a situation where you had sons that were on opposite sides in in this War. Now that I know for sure that he did serve for a short period of time I will try to locate more information on him and his unit and make it a part of his biography.
[NI2029] After William died, his wife Susan, married #2 James Starnes in 1871, and had two children Eliza Belle, and Benjamin (Ben ) Starnes. There is some note on the 1900 Van Buren Co, AR Census records where she stated that she had given birth to 8 children. There is only documentation to show she only had the four surviving children at that time. There may have been some children that were born premature or died as infants with no record of their birth.

The company retained this designation when McCray’s Battalion was reorganized as the 31st Arkansas Infantry on May 27, 1862. A total of 107 men are known to have served with Company D. Nearly a fourth of them died of disease during the war; only one of them was left at the surrender in April 1865. One member, Private William H.

[NI2040] Susan (Christopher) Arnhart married a James Starnes after the death of William F. Arnhart. There are two known children born to James and Susan, a daughter Eliza Belle and a son Benjamin. Belle is known to have married William Samuel Gardner in 1896 in Van Buren Co, AR. After Samuel Gardner died Belle married J.W. Beverage. Belle is buried in the Pleasant Grove Cem near Alread, Van Buren Co, AR. Belle had three children 2 from the marriage to Samuel Gardner, and 1 from the marriage to J. W. Beverage.
[NI2040] Susan was the daughter of Jonathan and Elizabeth Christopher.

[NI2040] The census records indicate that Susan was a widow in 1880. She married James Starnes in 1871. James died Dec. 29, 1881in Conway County, AR. There is a considerable amount of conflicting information on the census, dates and ages Etc. The fact that they were not living together indicates that she was not a widow, but had separated from James for some reason or another. Benjamin was born after 1880, so it may have been that the separation was only temporary.
Peter Alexander was a hard worker as were all the Arnhart people, and he had the reputation as being one of the best farmers in the county. He raised a lot of goats, had a large homestead which he patented 1890. Peter was considered a compassionate and kind man always ready to help when his neighbors were sick. He was a good trader and would barter for fruits. meat, etc, and he would share what he had with his friends and neighbors. His religious faith and belief in god prevented him from ever working on Sundays. He would always travel to Crabtree to attend church on Sunday and visit with friends and family. In the earlier years he would go by wagon. I remember he also had a surry that he would also use in his travel. There is also some information that he was considered the veterinarin for the county and was called upon to attend the sick animals. Although he was not a animal doctor he knew how to treat them, and was respected for his knowledge. I am told by Virgil Eskridge, that shortly before his death in 1945 while he was trying to break one of his colts his foot became entangled in the coil of the rope and his foot was pulled off at the ankles. Since he had always been an active person and the thought of being an invalid was more than he could endure. After being treated at a hospital, he was transferred to the State Hospital in Little Rock where he died a short time later. Peter's, father died when he was about 6 mo old. There are several stories about how his stepfather, James Starnes would abuse him by beating him with a hoe handle. I believed it is for this abuse that his older brother Henry was put in the custody of his uncle Martin Benjamin Arnhart when he was a minor about sixteen or seventeen years old. It has been said, James Sarnes was known for his mean and wicked ways. Peter Alexander Arnhart'a obituary will read: Peter Alexander Arnhart, age 79 years died at a Little Rock hospital April 25, 1945, following a illness of several months. He was born March 12, 1866. On January 12, 1888, he was united in marriage to Sarah Florence Mills, Who departed this life December 19, 1944. To their union seven children were born, as follows: Mrs. Bettie Goats of Little Rock, Mrs. Eva Eskridge of San Lorenzo, Calif., Earnest and Claude of Morrilton, Ark., Earl of Copeland Ark, Virgil and Harvey of Madison, Ill. Twenty grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Mr. Arnhart made a profession of religion in early life and united with the Missionary Baptist Church. He lived a consistent Christian life. He was a
good citizen, a loyal friend and a true neighbor, devoted to his family and church. Interment took place at the Crabtree Cemetery Friday, ApriL 27. The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Claude Jenkins, assisted by Rev. S.

[NI2062] There is very little history or information on the Jacob and Jane (Hensley) Arnhart family in Van Buren Co, AR. We do know that he was the son of George Arnhart of Rowan Co, NC. His father George was born in Rowan Co, NC, and was orphaned at a young age along with his other brothers. After George married Rosenna Airey in Rowan Co, NC, on 8 Feb., 1812, (Jacob was born in 1814, and was the second child born in this family, a older brother, John being born in 1813. A younger brother, Henry was born in 1816. There was another brother, that died as a infant in 1819. In addition there was one sister , Rosanna , born in 1817), they migrated to Tennessee, living in Perry County, McNarry County and Wayne County, TN. His father George, moved his family to Missouri, in the late 1830's settling in the town of Sleigman, Barry Co, MO, Jacob and his family came to Van Buren Co, AR. His older brother John, settled in Benton Co, AR, and Henry his younger brother settled in Prairie Co, AR. There is no record that Rosanna ever left Tennessee.
[NI2062] We find Jacob and his family in Van Buren Co, AR, as early as the 1840 census. At this time he list 2 male children under age 5. These are later identified as A son, George W. and Absolem Henry. We believe that he arrived in the county some time in 1938. There is some information that he may have arrived about the same time as the Jane Hensley family.
[NI2062] There were nine children born to Jacob and Jane Arnhart, seven of them being born in Van Buren Co., over a period of about the next ten years.
Jacob Arnhart was one of the earliest settlers to get a land grant from the Federal Government. His patent was granted in 1860 and signed by president James Buchanon. He states in his Affidavit that he has been residing on the property since the 1st day of January 1850. Nathan Sanders was the Clerk of the Circuit Court at the time he made the Affidavit. He stated that he had about 30 acres of the land cleared and in cultivation. There were two dwelling houses along with four corn cribs, a smoke house and other out buildings The description of this land is: the North East quarter of the North West quarter of Section fourteen, in Township twelve, North of Range sixteen, West, in the District of lands subject to the sale, at Batesville, Arkansas; containing forty acres. This was before Van Buren Co, become the office of record. The legal description of this land would put it in the general area of the Tollie Bixler farm.
From what we can determine Jacob spent all of his life living on his homestead there is no evidence that he ever lived anywhere else during his life time. We are not sure where he was buried when he died. There is some speculation that he was buried on the homestead. There is a cemetery located on the land that was the homestead that he and his son, Martin laid claim to. This Cemetery is known as the Arnhart Cemetery and was marked at one time with the name Arnhart Cemetery, with a gate and the traditional Arch that is usually associated with a cemetery. There was also at one time a wire fense that enclosed the cemetery grounds. Some of these grave markers date as far back as 1869. Many of the graves have no information or markers other than field stones. I believe that this cemetery could date back to the 1840/1850 era and possibly even earlier. The Van Buren County historians have also located a cemetery, that is also known as the Arnhart Family Cemetery, but this cemetery is located on the old Tyler Ott farm further down the river than where the homestead is located. They have correspondence from one of the older residents of that area, which states that he has heard that Jacob Arnhart, Jane Hensley, his wife and some of the children are buried there in that cemetery. There is only one readable marker, and that is for James L. Sanders, A civil war soldier. The legal description for the location of this cemetery does not correspond with the official documents that I have obtained from the land management office for his homestead.
Ollie Belle Koonne has some information that the first person to be buried in the Arnhart Family Cemetery was a young man that was killed by some bushwackers. She said some women found him on the side of the road and carried his body home, and he was buried in this cemetery. She was not sure who the young man was. She has heard this story related by her grandmother Hensley.
[NI2062] The following information is submitted to show a census prior to comming to AR, that Jacob was on the Perry Co, TN Census with his father George Arnhart.
[NI2062] 1820 Census Perry Co, TN: George Arnhart (index shows Harnhart) male 26-46, male under 10 (John born 17 aug 1812), male under 10 ( Jacob born 1814), male under 10 ( Henry born 1816), female under 10 ( Rossana born 1817), male under 10 (died young not named), female 26-44 ( Rossana Arey wife).

No previous records indicate there was another person by this name. This individual was born in North Carolina and listed as a person 19 years of age. I believe this is some relative from North Carolina living with the Jacob Arnhart family. There is still a lot of confusion about Hammet as he is listed on the records as both a male and female.

This was the last census to carry Jacob Arnhart. He did remain on the Van Buren County, AR tax records through 1887. Jacob probably died some time about 1886/1887.
[NI2062] The will of George Arnhart in Barry Co, MO, dated 1856 makes mention of his son, Jacob living in Van Buren Co, AR, and the heirs of his other son, Henry. They were living in Prairie Co, AR at that time.
[NI2062] Jacob Arnhart married his sister-in-law Clarrisa Sanders Hensley some time around 1872. Their daughter Eada was born ca.1873. Jacob would have been in his late 50's when his daughter was born. I have not been able to find any record of marriage in Van Buren Co, AR. There were two children born to Jacob and Clarrisa. Eada and Jacob Jr. After Jacob died Clarrisa remained on the Van Buren Co, AR tax records through 1890.

[NI2085] CONTANY I,, 3RD ARKANSAS CAVALRY (UNION)
After Major General Frederick Steele occupied Little Rock in September 1863, the Federal government soon discovered that there were many loyal Arkansas citizens who would fight for the United States. On October 26, 1863, Major General Steele authorized Captain A. H. Ryan, 17th Illinois Infantxy, to raise a regiment of cavalry headquartered at Little Rock. At that time it was found necessary that all new troops should be put in the field on active duty immediately. This meant that there was not much training and the Third Arkansas Cavalry always had a rough appearance, more like guerrillas than regular troops. They were eventually stationed at Lewisburg, now gone, but near the present town of Morrilton. This place became a haven for the families of the soldiers, who came out of the hills as refugees, and the regimental quartermaster was hard put to find food for the soldiers, because he spent so much on their families. This was probably necessary to keep the troops in the ranks.
Some of the troops were raised with the apparent promise that they were to serve for only twelve months. At the end of their service there was a furor as many insisted on leaving the ranks and going home. After an inquiry, the soldiers were found to have been recruited with that stipulation, and they were eventually mustered out May 22, 1865, while the remainder of the regiment waited until June 30, 1865 to be mustered out.
[NI2085] History of George Arnhart's 3rd Arkansas Infantry:
The Third Arkansas Cavalry (union) spent most of its time searching out Confederate guerrillas. "In a report made to this office February 4, 1865, by First Lieutenant Frank Pease, of Company H, the following succinct statement of the operations of the regiment to that time appears: 'On the organization of the regiment two battalions- were sent up the Arkansas river to hold a large scope of territory infested by numerous guerilla bands, who were robbing and murdering Union families in the most barbarous manner that human depravity could invent. Territory held by these marauders was soon wrested from their hands by the 3rd Cavalry, and comparative quiet restored. One battalion remained in camp at Little Rock until an expedition was sent out to the Ouachita River under General Steele; that battalion accompanied the expedition, and participated in all the engagements of the entire campaign.
"'The 7th Regiment, since it's organization, has been engaged in clearing the country of the numerous predatory bands which have cursed this district with their infamous operations since the inception of the rebellion, and by it a large number of them have been killed and wounded. Being stationed remotely from supplies, and constituting an extreme outpost to Little Rock, the regiment has necessarily performed a large amount of labor, some times subsisting on half or quarter rations. The extent of territory protected and occupied was large, and, at the same time, to avoid being cut off from our base of supplies by greatly superior forces, we were taught vigilance and the imperative necessity of giving the enemy a wholesome dread of the regiment.
For some months prior to the date of this communication the regiment was stationed at Lewisburg, on the Arkansas River, where it was of great service to General Steele. Detachments were constantly on the alert, scouring the country, breaking up the lesser haunts of the enemy
Archibald Dodson Napier, Captain of Company 1, was a resident of Pope County, Arkansas, when he enlisted in the 3rd Arkansas Cavalry and was appointed I st Lieutenant. He was sent out on recruiting duty and upon raising a company was appointed Captain December 1, 1863, to take effect February 14, 1864. He was dismissed October 14, 1864, for inefficiency and neglect of duty. He was appointed Sheriff of Pope County and was murdered October 25, 1865 while riding along a public road east of Dover.
Napier found easy recruiting in Searcy County, according to James Bratton, "Myself, John Bratton and France Bratton were all conscripted into the Confederate Army (Captain Sam Leslie's Co. F, 32nd Arkansas Infantry), and was with the Army until after the Prairie Grove Battle. Ran away and came home and worked in a saltpetre works on Buffalo and Big Creek, until in December, 1863, when Capt. Naypner [sic Napier], out recruiting for the Union Army, came into the cave, and I and John and France went out with him and stayed with the Federal Army until we were discharged. There was four of us in the Federal Army and we went through and neither of us got a scratch, or hurt, and we are still living. I and John's family moved to Lewisburg, where we were stationed. France and Ben were single men and when the war was over and we were discharged, we came back home in the summer of 1865, Our houses were all burned and fences down.

[NI2085] We believe George, is one of the Arnhart sons that is buried in the old Arnhart Cemetery.
1. Jacob Jr. owned a large tract of land in the area of Gold Hill, Rowan co
North Carolina, and when gold was found there he sold his land to a mining
company and moved to Iredell county NC. He bought land near the Amity
Hill community. There he farmed, and death was brought on by overheating
while working in a wheat field. He died 29 july, 1859 and has a readable
marker at Bethesda Presbyterian church in Amity Hill. After his death
Annie Mary sold their property and moved back to Gold Hill, with her family.
Annie Marie died 15 june 1892 and is buried in Wesley Chapel Cemetery in
Misenheimer, NC close to her son Stokes. She has a readable marker.

[NI2089] Mary was born ca. 1821.

[NI2091] Sarah born ca. 1821.
[NI2092] Susanna was born ca. 1827.
[NI2093] Emeline was born ca. 1829.
[NI2096] There is a record of First Lieutanant Absolem Henry Arnhart in Company C. Arkansas 10 th Regiment. This was a unit with the confederate Army. We do not have any record of what happened to him after the war, so we assume he died as a result of the war. His older brother George, joined the 3rd Arkansas Calvary unit which was a Union Army unit. Abosolm and George were on opposite sides of the war. George died in a hospital at Lewisburg AR, shortly after he voluntered for service. The two brothers never had to face each other in combat. There is no record of where either one of these war veterans are buried. It is believed by some, that they were buried in the old Arnhart Cemetery on their fathers old homestead, in some of the unmarked graves. It is my guess that the three unmarked Arnhart graves are that of George, Abosolm and Martin Arnhart. I have found another record of A. H. Arnhart in the Arkansas 8th CSA Regement known as(Newtons Regt) He was a listed as a Corporal on the Company records. Hight 6ft 3 in, Eyes Hazel, Complexion Dark, Age 26 years old. Voluntered at Clinton, Arkansas for three years,

[NI2129] The 1850 AR census shows his name as Thomas and/or John. In the 1860 Van Buren Co. , AR census he was listed as John Arnhart.
[NI2129] Additional Information about his Military Service in the Civil War.
Thirty-first Regiment Arkansas Infantry.
Company D Van Buren County.
[NI2129] This company was organized at Clinton, Arkansas, on January 22, 1862, Captain Robert S. Hill commanding. When McCray’s Battalion was organized on January 25, 1862, the Clinton company was assigned as Company D. The company retained this designation when McCray’s Battalion was reorganized as the 31st Arkansas Infantry on May 27, 1862. A total of 107 men are known to have served with Company D. Nearly a fourth of them died of disease during the war; only one of them was left at the surrender in April 1865. One member, Private William H. Huie, was awarded the Confederate equivalent of the Medal of Honor for his heroism at the Battle of Chickamauga.
Private Enlisted at Clinton, Arkansas, January 22, 1862; age 18; died in hospital at Cleveland, Tennessee, January 27, 1863.
[NI2129] John was approximately 15 years old in the 1860 Van Buren Co, AR census. His record states he was 18 years old when he enlisted Jan 23. 1862 with his unit. He was probably closer to age 16 years old in 1860.
Martin Benjamin Arnhart died when he was about 35 years of age. There are land records where Martin and Nancy had received a patent on land in Van Buren Co, AR. This land is in, Part one: WNE, Sec. 14, Twp.12 N, R16 W, Part two: SENW, Sec. 14, Twp.12 N, R 16 W, containing 120 acres. The patent on this land was started sometime around March 17, 1881. This would be known today as the Tollie Bixler farm. This is also the location of the Cemetery which is known as the old Arnhart Cemetery. We believe that Marrtin and Nancy are both buried in this Cemetery. There is some information in the land records that they had built a house on the land in 1878. It appears that they may have lived there for sometime before the patent was started, as they indicated that they had lived there continuously since 1881. They also indicated in their application that Martin was deceased at the age of 35, and that there was one child residing in the household with Nancy. She also indicated that they had raised something like six crops of corn and cotton on this land. Martin had cleared about thirty acres and had built some outbuildings, corn cribs etc. They owned some livestock and had some household items. They were also cultivating a garden and had a fruit orchard
We know that there are three graves in this Arnhart cemetery marked with field stones, and the letter "A "scribed into the stones. We are told that My great uncle Peter Alexander Arnhart was the one that marked the graves with the letter "A ". There are three of these grave marked in this manner. One may assume that since there three graves, the child that Nancy referred to in her testimony on her land patent could be the third stone. We have been told that at one time there was an iron gate and a arch that identified the entrance to this cemetery. There was also a wire fence that surrounded the cemetery.
The 1870 census indicates that Martin Benjamin Arnhart was 22 years old male person. When you look at the the 1880 VanBuren Co, census he is 32 years old and is living with his wife Nancy H. Arnart. There is also a niece living in a household by the name of Margaret Thomas age 6 years. There is also a nephew William H. Arnhart age 19 years of age.
Since they had resided on this property since 21 March,1881, the final patent on this land was signed by President William Harrison on the 17 day of Sept,1889..
The Van Buren Co, Tax records show that Nancy H. Arnhart, the widow of Martin Benjamin started to pay taxes in 1885. This was probably the year after Martin had died.
Martin Benjamin was made Guardian to William Henry Arnhart in 1880 book C page 318 Van Buren Co, AR. In the mater of the Estate of W. H. Arnhart Minor, Martin B. Arnhart Guardian: Now on this day causes the Clerk and shows to the County, that in Vacation he granted letter of guardianship to M.B. Arnhart of the person of said minor, and executes the bond of said M. B. Arnhart which was examined and affirmed. It is therefore ordered by the Court that the acts of the clerk in granting said letter of guardianship in vacation be confirmed, and bond be recorded.

[NI2151] Died very young and, is most likely buried in the family plot located on the Jacob Arnhart property along with some of the other family members. This cemetery is located in section 7, Township12, North Range 15 West which was also known as the old Tyler Ott farm.
[NI2162] Ted Gardner provides the following information on the cemetery where he thinks Harriet Arnhart Gardner was buried. The Gardner Cemetery, is located about 3.5 miles North of Scotland, AR on County Road # 9, 1/2 mile from the old swinging bridge.
Upon the death of Samuel, Nancy married Marion D. Byers, and they had two children, both girls. Their names were Gracie and Macie.
Gracie Byars, married Zack Bailey and had several children. We do not know the names of any of their children. Macie Byars married Ed Allen, and when Macie was expecting her first child she drowned in a river/ wagon accident during a flood. One of Ed's daughters from a previous marriage was also drowned. Ed Allen survived the accident. This information is from Ted Gardner. This additional and recent information is from Andrea and Bill Boydstun, Houston,TX. He also provides information on the 1920 census in Pushmataha Co, OK. as follows:

[NI2202] Rose's second marriage was to Dexter Arnhart, She lived many years in the Lonoke Co., AR, area. Her marriage to Dexter ended in a divorce.
Some time after Jacob Arnhart died, Clarissa sold the old homestead to Mr. T.J. Pendley. The transcript of the deed is as follows: I Clarissa M. Arnhart wife of Jacob Arnhart, for and in consideration for the sum of one hundred and twenty six dollars do hereby grant, bargain, sell, and convey unto T.J.

George, the son of John Ehrenhardt was born in Rowan Co, NC, Records show he is buried in King Cemetery near Sleigman, Barry Co, MO. This cemetery is located north of the town of Sleigman, Mo. There is also information that George and his brothers were left orphans upon the death of their father. The following information is submitted, "Orphan" George was bound to Tobian Furrer but 6 days after his marriage to Rossana Airey. Henry Airey was the bondsman for marriage. Zachariah Airey his father in-law was made guardian.

George Alexander Arnhart was born in Tennessee and moved in 1884 to what was then Western countr. At the age of 10, He and his family setteled on Roller's Ridge near what is now Seligiman, Missouri.
At the age of 18, George A Arnhart was married to "Polly " Roller, a first cousin of my great grandpa, Austin Roller. In 1865 Austin was reported killed while serving during the Civil War, thus leaving his wife Sarah Ann McCallister roller to rear their three children, Marion, Winiford and Maggie Roller. After "Polly" Arnhart's dearh, George Arnhart was married to Austin Rollers widow, my great grandma, Sally Ann Roller.
About 1872, George and his four children, Sarah and her three children, and George Sarah first child move one quarter mile south of East Purdy. The same location is now home fpr Earl and Ruth Mizer Henderson.
September 16, 1876 two acres of land was purchased from the Atlantic and South Pacific Railroad Company for $10 paid by Wm. J. Billington, George A. Arnhart and John R. Terry, directors of school district # 1. This School was given the name of Arnhart. The Community was known as the Arnhart School district. Later the three room school was consolidated with the Purdy Schools
March 27 , 1879, G.A. Arnhart, J. Call and E. Smith , trustees, paid $10 for the purchase of two acres joining the Arnhart school grounds on the east for a cemetery, also named Arnhart.
After 1936 when the rural district students were bussed to Purdy, the county school buildings and grounds were sold. Perry and Chole Roller purchased then and. On August 11, 1943, the two acres were given and deeded to the trustees of the Arnhart C
Perry Alphonzo Roller was born at the George Arnhart Home. To his many friends and acquaintances he was known as "Perry" or P.A.. To his seven children, Burl, Nadine, Austin, Hazel, Muriel, Lucille and Evelyn. he was Poppy.
About 1888 George and Sarah Arnhart moved to the Washburn Prairie. Poppy moved with his parents and sister to what later became known as the Perry roller farm. Poppy had a fine dairy heard that provided for our livelihood. He kept accurate records , some on paper and some in his head. Milking time was four-thirty a.m and four-thirty p.m.
Poppy served on the Purdy School Board of Education for twenty years. He has seven reasons to serve on the school board but only one reason for milking the cows thirty minutes early in the afternoon. That was so he could be at the school board meeting on time.
