THE TUTT, KING, AND EVERETT WAR
(Part 2 - continued from Vol 2, No. 2)
compiled by Vicki A. Roberts

        Shortly before this, about 1845, Jesse N. Everett and one of the Everett party named Jacob Stratton moved to Denton Co. TX. Matters grew worse with neighbor against neighbor. The principal parties went forth armed with knives, pistols, and rifles.
       On Monday, 9 October 1848, another town meeting was held. All parties met at Tutt's Store. Hamp Tutt was wise enough to keep out of the way. He knew a row would be raised and he feared he would be killed. Jesse Turner, Esquire, spoke that day. After his talk the two parties, armed to the teeth, had some words and drew up in battle array.
       The Everetts came with their friends. Jesse Everett was in TX, Ewell Everett wasn't there but his boys were, and Hayne Everett wasn't there either. But, from their actions, it was plain they meant business if molested, and that it would take little to bring on a conflict. They formed a line in front of Tutt's Store and Saloon where the Tutts and their friends were collected and began heckling them for a fight. The two groups spat epithets back and forth and it seemed that any minute the fight would begin.
       Sheriff Mooney, out of town that day with his pregnant wife, had left Constable Adams in charge. When the brawling began, rocks and bricks and sticks appeared like magic in upraised hands. Sim Everett was laid low by a weeding hoe one of the King boys had "appropriated" from in front of the blacksmith shop. The soft curls the young ladies delighted in running their fingers through were now tangled and matted with blood. Constable Adams was in a dither! He wished Sheriff Mooney were at home instead of "babysittin' his woman" 'cuz he sure could use his help. And he got his wish when a whirlwind suddenly sprang up and came between the two factions, covering them with dust and blowing their hats off. Everyone scattered. Onlookers and antagonists all returned to their homes, and warlike demonstrations ceased for a time.
       When Sheriff Mooney got back to town, he found Bart Everett pacing up and down in front of the jail demanding the arrest of the Kings. Mooney obtained warrants for their arrest and rode across Buffalo River into Searcy Co. Searcy Co. Deputy Ben Code, who operated the ferry across the river which was the county line, teamed up with him and they arrived at the King place just as they were sitting down to eat. The Kings were peaceable folk so, even though they had been warned there were arrest warrants out for Cherokee Bob and the King boys, they mounted up and rode out with Sheriff Mooney and Deputy Code. When they reached the county line, where Constable Adams awaited them, Code offered to accompany them on to Yellville. But Mooney declared he'd go it alone. He knew Bill King for a good and trustworthy man and expected no trouble. However, Mooney was still concerned for his pregnant wife. Bill King said for him to go ahead and check on her. He'd take his boys on to Yellville with Constable Adams' help. Gratefully, Mooney rode off, promising to name the baby William King if it were a boy.
       Unbeknownst to the Kings, who were unarmed, and the lawmen, the Everetts lay in wait about half a mile inside the Marion Co. line. They began an indiscriminate attack, killing Uncle Billy King and his son Lumas. Hosea and James King made their escape. Cherokee Bob and Young Billy King were seriously wounded but managed to crawl off into the dense undergrowth. Late Saturday night, Young Billy crawled into the yard of a Tutt sympathizer. Their hounds alerted them, and they hid the boy until the next day when Constable Adams listened to the dying boy's story.
       Sheriff Mooney was accused by the Tutts of knowing of the ambush and slayings. He decided it was time to "lay down the law" On 4 July 1849, he and Constable Adams gathered a group of men and deputized each one. While Mooney was explaining their duties to them, the Tutts gathered in the saloon, the Everetts took cover behind the buildings across the street, and the fight was on. Guns fired all afternoon, and the smell of gunsmoke and death lay over the town. When their ammunition was gone, the feuders spilled out into the street. Sticks, bricks, axes, knives, anything that could kill or maim became weapons in the hands of these men who allowed the worst in themselves to rule them rather than their hearts and minds. Ewell Everett's son Frank shot Jack King with an old squirrel rifle and he died the next day (one account says Jack King was shot by a man named Watkins). A man named Mears advanced on Frank as if to disarm him. Frank struck him with the gun, breaking his arm. Sim Everett shot at Dave Sinclair but missed. Sinclair returned fire, wounding Sim. Sim picked up a rock and pursued Sinclair; but, spotting King, who had been wounded at the start, he turned to him and smashed in his skull in a most shocking manner, dying in the act. King lived until morning. Dick King shot a man named Watkins in the forehead at the hairline. The bullet cut a trench through the skin on top of his head without fracturing his skull. He fell to the ground as if dead, but soon recovered. Bart Everett shot at Jack King's brother, grazing his shoulder. He in turn shot back. Bart was standing under a black locust tree and, when the bullet struck him, he clasped his arms around the tree, sank to the ground, and died. He had tied a ribbon around his hat for a hat band. When his body was removed from the tree, some of the men tied this ribbon around the tree where it hung for several months before rotting away. Ten men, including Bart Everett and Davis, Ben, and Lunsford Tutt, died on the streets of Yellville that fateful day. Only four Kings were involved in the battle: Hosea's sons, Jack and Tom, and Old Billy's boys, Lumas and Richard. None of the Burnes nor Cowans nor any of the older King men were there. Dave Sinclair rode out of town to Searcy County right after the fight. A posse of Everett's friends found him next morning asleep near the top of a tree. Attempting to escape, he was killed by a rifle shot.
       When Jesse Everett heard of the deaths of his brothers Bart and Sim, he left Texas to avenge their deaths. Hearing of this, Hamp Tutt was on the lookout. One day, on his way home from Lebanon, he was fired upon. Arriving in Yellville, he told his friends he was sure it was Jesse Everett. Once again the county was in an uproar and several unsuccessful attempts were made on Hamp's life by Jesse and his friend Jacob Stratton, a bold and daring man and a great hunter. Hamp remained on the alert; Jesse and Jacob remained in hiding.
       Sheriff Mooney knew he needed help. He sent his eldest son, Tom, to Little Rock to beg aid from the governor. The horror is that Tom arrived safely in Little Rock, but never made it back. The carcass of his white horse washed up at the mouth of Rush Creek several weeks later, but Tom's body was never found. (To be continued)

       I can't begin to tell you how great it feels to be a part of Bramble Bush and of Marion County Families 1811-1900. The response to each of these has been outstanding, and that in itself adds greatly to these good feelings. Membership in the Society is well over 150, while book sales are soaring over the 400 mark.
       There have been many good responses to the first chapter of the "Tutt, King and Everett War" in Bramble Bush. This issue brings you Chapter 2, and the third and final chapter will in the last issue of 1997. Along with the final chapter will be a list of the sources used to write the story of this historical event in Marion County history. You know, of course, this is not the first time - nor will it be the last - that someone has taken pen in hand to write the story of this feud. We hope you're enjoying our version.
       This issue is filled with good articles that I sincerely hope each reader will find of benefit. There is so much we want to bring you in coming issues, be it just interesting or of real help in your research. Remember, Bramble Bush can be a wonderful gift for family and friends.
       We've heard both compliments and complaints about Marion County Families 1811-1900. I still feel this is by far the best "family facts" book to come out of Marion County. My primary hope in working so diligently on this book is that 50 to 100 years down the road, when our descendants begin their search for ancestors, they'll be able to walk into any library that has a copy and find their Marion County kinfolk. This is something most of us haven't been lucky enough to find. I know when I started my own family research 35 years ago, there was little if anything on individual families nor on counties.
       We've already begun the collection of additions, corrections, and stories for our upcoming Supplement to Marion County Families 1811-1900. This new book will be a must for all of you who already have Marion County Families so start saving your pennies. We'll be collecting for at least a year or two before we start setting up a format, editing, and indexing let alone printing. If you have information you feel needs to be included, please get it to Mysty or me right away.
       By the way, everything listed in the column "Recent Acquisitions" is available for your use in our Research Room at the Marion County Library in Yellville. We're most grateful for all the donations; each one expands our research collection much faster than our funds would allow, and each one imparts information we'd be hard put to come up with.

       Contributions are being collected for Supplement to Marion County Families 1811-1900. Families were missed, individuals got lost in the shuffle, typos happened, and sources were sort of limited. Wouldn't it be nice to have the data on each family in just one or two places instead of scattered all over the country? Be sure to get your stories, family genealogies, additions, and corrections to Mysty McPherson or Vicki Roberts, PO Box 554, Yellville AR 72687. They need all the help you can give them. Remember though, this project could take 2 or 3 or more years to complete so please don't get impatient.

       Between 1890 and 1899 there were 1,665 lynchings in Arkansas. Between 1900 and 1909 there were 921. Between 1910 and 1919 there were 840. Between 1920 and 1927 there were 304. During the decade beginning in 1910, well-organized efforts to curb lynchings were first begun on a national level. However, in 1915, the number of persons lynched jumped inexplicably to 145, nearly double that of the year before. As a state, Arkansas trailed only Mississippi, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama.
