(continued from Volume 3 Number 2)
Compiled by Vicki A. Roberts

        Travel on the beautiful White River in the early days was by keel boat - large, heavy-timbered, awkward craft with rounded bottoms. They usually ranged in size from between forty and seventy feet in length and eight to twelve feet in width. They opened the river to trade and settlement by pioneering white men.
       From Sumner County TN, John Lafferty, explored the White .River as early as 1802. He established a trading post on the Upper White and became one of the earliest keel boat operators. By 1810 Robert Bean ran a trading post near Guion AR which was still in operation when Schoolcraft visited the area in 1819. And sometime before 1819, John C. Luttig, an agent for Christian Wilt of St. Louis, was reported to be the largest trader and keel boat operator on the White.
       As early as 1815 three Shawnee Indian villages are known to have existed on White River. One was near the mouth of Livingston's Creek, one was at the mouth of Pine Bayou, and one was near the mouth of Big North Fork River. Colonel Luis was the Shawnee Chief at the North Fork settlement.
       Jesse Money (1818-1884), son of Jacob Money, migrated to his father's old trading post on White River ca 1840. He was Sheriff of Marion County from 1844 to 1850, operated Money's Ferry (later known as Tablet's Ferry), managed a cotton gin, and developed Money's Landing which was a thriving steamboat dock. He was known far and wide for having piloted a steamboat farther up White River than anyone else, having gone as far as the mouth of the James River.
       In the autumn of 1835 Jesse Goodman, Write and John Rutherford were chosen by a group of prospective settlers to scout the wilderness of Arkansas and Missouri for a suitable new home. They liked the White River area and returned to Tennessee and Indiana with tales of a wondrous country and the beautiful spot they had decided upon. Goodman bought a keel boat to transport the women and children down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers and then up the White. He also bought large amounts of supplies and trade goods, including several barrels of whiskey, peach brandy, Spanish brandy, rye, and cherry and mint cordials. Off he sailed with his cargo and passengers. Meantime, the men and boys drove the cattle and other stock overland through Missouri, taking about six weeks. Several weeks after their arrival at their destination, a courier arrived from the Batesville area with the urgent request that the men and boys make all haste to transport numerous canoes down the White to help push Goodman and his heavily laden keel boat up the river. Never before had a vessel as large as Goodman's keel boat traveled so far up White River. Curious pioneers and their families came from near and far to view and wonder at the huge craft. By 1837 Jesse Goodman had become the first keel boat operator in what became the Marion County area of White River.
       Another, and easier, form of transportation used by those early settlers who traveled up and down White River was the flat boat. A useful craft, pioneers and their families, particularly those along the Upper White, depended on them and the men who sailed them for supplies such as salt, flour, whiskey, coffee and lead. Bear oil, venison, hides, honey, and beeswax were traded for these supplies.
       Sills Claiborne Turbo recorded two flat boat accidents in the area of Elbow Shoals. The first occurred in 1835 when a flat boat laden with numerous iron wash kettles, cooking pots, frying pans, and similar containers approached the shoals. The flat boat owner was hoping to sell this cargo to the settlers along the White. Unfortunately the boat rammed against the right bank of the river and sank straightway. On top of that, it was the rainy season and, before any of the cargo could be rescued, freshets of runoff from recent rains swelled the White and completely buried both the boat and its pots and pans
       The second accident occurred in the Spring of 1848 when Benjamin Majors was taking a load of corn and fattened cattle down river by flatboat to market in New Orleans. At the same shoal, in almost the exact same spot, the swift current forced the bow of the from the bank, the crewmen rushed to the bow and jumped to safety. They all made it except Bob Rains who fell backwards into the swirling water. Luckily he was rescued by his shipmates. The cattle, tied securely to the boat, were not so lucky. The captain and his crew stood helplessly on shore watching the boat, with its cargo still on board, being swept away into deep water and thus sinking.
       The first steamboat to appear on White River was the "Waverly," commanded by Captain Philip Pennywit with Thomas Todd Tunstall serving as her pilot. She arrived in Batesville in 1831. The life span of these steamboats averaged three and a half years with a seven- to eight-year-old one being considered quite aged. Most of the steamers were relatively small boats, often towing flatboats or keelboats which were loaded by merchants with exports for downstream ports. Jesse Money and his partner Person owned the "Thomas P. Ray," a steamer which "in 1858 carried over 3,000 barrels of salt, not to mention whiskey, up White River this season." Construction of the White River Railroad ended regular steamboat traffic in 1903. The last one on the river was the "Ozark Queen" which ran out of Batesville.
       Ferries have been used up and down White River to get from one side to the other for at least 180 years. Two or three, and probably more, are still used today. The operation of ferries is controlled by law. The first ferry on White River - actually the first in all of Arkansas - was located at Poke Bayou in 1818. (To be continued - - -)

       As we celebrate this 222nd birthday of our nation, I hope each of us can and will take the time to reflect on just what and how much our forefathers forfeited so that the inalienable rights of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" could and would be among their descendants. Without these rights we undoubtedly would have no Bramble Bush, no libraries for research, no Internet, no queries, no Ancestor Fairs - none of the precious mainstays in the lives of genealogical researchers. So often we take these and so many, many other things for granted, forgetting the trials and hardships experienced by those who came before us. Our heritage is rich in sharing, caring, preserving.. Let's all strive harder than ever to preserve this heritage in all its ramifications for the generations to come, just as our forefathers did 222 years ago.
       The Ninth Annual North Arkansas Ancestor Fair at Leslie back in June was, as usual, lots of fun. Ran into many old friends, met some interesting new people, sold some books, helped folks with family tree problems, and generally had a good time. Russell Baker's talk on "Burned Counties," of which Marion is one, was quite instructive. We felt pretty good coming away with the knowledge that the Society has at least one copy of every single source available to do research in this little ash heap of ours (except one that costs about $1500 and is a bit iffy even at that price). Coordinator James Johnston and his volunteers are great organizers. They all warrant a huge round of thanks for their endeavors.
       It's unseasonably hot and dry, dry, dry here in the Ozarks. So far we've been very lucky with no major fires like so many people. We'll need to hay the cattle soon unless we get rain - which we haven't had any to speak of for around six or seven weeks. Ponds and creeks are holding up, but they're real low. If you're into rain dances, we'd sure appreciate your help. But gently, please. Gently. No gully washers.
       Supplement to Genealogies of Marion Co. Families is coming along, but, honestly, we need more input from all of you about your families. Before 1830 and mostly after 1920 we have no public records. We must needs rely on each you for the people and their relationships to each other. As Editor, my eternal thanks go to John and Nancy Nolan of Grandview WA for all the corrections they have so diligently tracked down and the additional data they've sent. They're quite a team.

I went searching for an ancestor. I cannot find him still.
He moved around from place to place, and did not leave a will.

He married where a courthouse burned; he mended all his fences.
He avoided any man who came to take the US Census.

He always kept his luggage packed, this man who had no fame,
And every 20 years or so this rascal changed his name.

His parents came from Europe. They should be upon a list
Of passengers to the USA, but somehow they got missed.

And no one else in all this world is searching for this man;
So I can play geneo-solitaire to find him if I can.

I'm told he's buried in a plot, with tombstone he is blessed;
But weather took the engraving and some vandals took the rest.

He died before county clerks decided to keep records.
No family Bible has emerged in spite of all my efforts.

To top it off this ancestor, who has caused me many groans,
Just to give me one more pain, betrothed a girl named Jones.

RESERVATION ROLL OF 1817
       A listing of those desiring a 640-acre tract in the east and permitted to reside there.

EMIGRATION ROLLS 1817 to 1835
       Those who filed to emigrate to Arkansas country and, after 1828, to Oklahoma.

HENDERSON ROLL 1835
       A census of over 16,000 Cherokee residing in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina to be removed to Oklahoma under the Treaty of Echota (1835).

MULLAY ROLL 1848
       This is a census of 1,517 Cherokee people remaining in North Carolina after the removal of 1838. John C. Mullay took the census pursuant to an Act of Congress in 1848.

SILER ROLL 1851
       A listing of some 17,000 Eastern Cherokee entitled to a per capita payment pursuant to an Act of Congress 1850.

CHAPMAN ROLL 1852
       Prepared by Albert Chapman as a listing of those Cherokee actually receiving payment based on the Siler census.

SWETLAND ROLL 1869
       Prepared by S. H. Swetland as a listing of those Cherokee, and their descendants, who were listed as remaining in North Carolina by Mullay in 1848. Made pursuant to an Act of Congress 1868 for a removal payment authorization.

HESTER ROLL 1883
       Compiled by Joseph G. Hester as a roll of Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in 1883. (This roll is an excellant source of information including ancestors, Chapman Roll numbers, age, English name and Indian name.)

CHURCHILL ROLL 1908
       By Inspector Frank C. Churchill to certify members of the Easter Band of Cherokee Indians. Like the Hester Roll, includes a lot of information including degree of Rejectees.

GUION MILLER ROLL 1909
       Compiled by Mr. Miller of all Eastern East Cherokee, not Old Settlers, residing either east or west of the Mississippi River. Ordered by Court of Claims as a result of a suit won by the Eastern Cherokee.
       A Court of Claims resulted in members of the Eastern Cherokee living either east or west of the Mississippi River, not including the Old Settlers, to be entitled to participate in a monetary award by the Court as a result of various treaty violations.
       In order to participate, one had to be alive on 28 May 1906 and establish himself as a member of the Eastern Cherokee, or a descendant thereof, at the time of the violated treaties. 48,847 separate applications were filed, representing some 90,000 individuals. Out of this number, 3,436 Cherokee east of the Mississippi and 27,284 west of the Mississippi were certified by Mr. Miller as being eligible to participate in the award.
       One lucky enough to find an ancestor on this roll can find out a tremendous amount of information. Not only is the roll detailed, but copies of the actual applications are available which, in most cases, go back to the mid and early 1850s.

BAKER ROLL 1924
       This was supposed to be the final roll of the Eastern Cherokee. The land was to be allotted and all were to become regular citizens. Fortunately the Eastern Cherokee avoided the termination procedures, unlike their brothers of the Nation to the west. The BAKER ROLL REVISED is the current membership roll of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina.

OLD SETTLER ROLL 1851
       A listing of Cherokee still living in 1855 who were already residing in Oklahoma when the main body of the Cherokee arrived in the winter of 1839 as a result of the Treaty of New Echota 1835. Approximately one third of the Cherokee people at that time were Old Settlers and two thirds were new arrivals.

DRENNEN ROLL 1852
       The first census of the new arrivals of 1839. The New Echota Treaty Group - "Trail of Tears."

DAWES ROLL 1898-1914
       The final roll for allotting land and terminating the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. Senator Henry L. Dawes was the commission's chairman and consequently, the name Dawes is associated with the final roll. The roll turned out to not be as final as it was expected to be. Upon the reorganization of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma in the 1970s, the Dawes Roll became the only means of certifying membership. To be enrolled by the Cherokee Nation, one must prove ancestry to a person enrolled by Dawes. Information on enrollment with the Cherokee Nation may be obtained by writing to: Cherokee Nation, Tribal Registrar, PO Box 948, Tahlequah OK 74465
