What Pioneer Arkansas Ate!!!!!

       The first dwellings of the Arkansas pioneers were crude log house hastily built to protect from the elements. The spaces between the raw logs were usually filled or chinked with mud, but most times it cracked and fell out or washed away in a hard rain. It was said that a person could see a fire through the walls of one of these log cabins burning upon the hearth. Most of these cabins or dwellings had a dirt floor, and more than likely no windows. Since glass was so hard to obtain, most used oiled paper to cover the window opening, or left no opening at all. These cabins were dark most of the time and the only lighting was either oil lamps if the family was fortunate or candles made from the fat rendered from game or the hogs at killing time.
       These pioneers had other problems as well. The supplies of cornmeal, wheat flour and salt that they brought with them on the trail soon gave out. Waiting on the first corn crop, planted haphazardly among the stumps of new felled trees, was often a dismal time. However, there was game aplenty so starvation was not a threat. But still, a man need a bit of bread every now an then. Roasted breast of wild turkey came to be known as "Hunter's bread" due to the fact that it was dry and grainy and provided some contrast to the red meat that steadily found its way into the stewpot or over the cook fires.
       A "Hunter's Stew" might contain anything from chunks of bear meat to bits of squirrel meat. One common requirement was strong red pepper to make the gamey flavor of some of the meat that got tossed into the kettle.
       Salt was another scarce item on the frontier. It wasn't until the settlers began to organize trips to Batesville to get salt that it became plentiful. Sugar was also a scarce item. Many of the pioneers would rob bee trees for their honey. Wheat was not a grain that grew very well in the Ozarks so most of the bread here at first was corn bread or corn pone. Peas, beans, turnips, cabbage, potatoes and squash flourished. With the coming of spring everyone went out to pick new greens or poke sallet. A "mess o' greens" made a pleasant change from the dried and root vegetables that the pioneer family had lived on all winter.
       "Hogs were the most numerous of the domestic animals that the pioneer kept. The hogs could roam wild in the winter and forage, be brought in, in the spring to have their young and come cold weather, the prime ones could either be sold or traded and the rest butchered, cured and saved to feed the family during the long winter to come. Hams, shoulders and sides of bacon were salted and smoked for future use: fat was rendered into lard: and spareribs and internal organs ere usually eaten fresh. Crackiings, the crisp brown bits and pieces left over from lard rendering, went into cracklin' bread. The made a flavorful addition to the unvarying cornbread of the family table.
       Most families had one or more milk cows, which the wife would milk twice a day and use the milk not only to drink but also to make butter and buttermilk in which to barter for other foodstuffs. Those families that did not have a milk cow would trade items of value for the milk and butter. Most all families owned chickens. Eggs were also a good barter item, especially at the closest general store. These items could be traded for dress goods, shoes, and leather for mending harness, or tools or seeds in the spring. In the fall also the children would be sent to gather the ever-present black walnuts. These made a delicious addition to cakes, pies and other foodstuffs during the winter months.
       Very few folks in the Ozarks owned slaves. A few families owned two or three but unlike the big plantation owners of the south, there was not the need for this labor in the mountains. Most of the families here were rich enough to own slaves; they just did the labor themselves. However, the Indians that were here did leave behind recipes that the folks still use to day.

JESSE BALLARD JAMES
1803 - 1861/2
COMPILED BY DON DUGGINS

       Most family histories have several versions of events, dates, people, and places. This one is not unique in that respect. I have attempted to incorporate all the versions I have found to date and allow the reader to determine which is the more logical, or likely to be accurate.
       Jesse Ballard James was born about 1803 probably in Virginia, although some sources say that he was born in Kentucky. He was the fourth son of Joseph Thomas James born about 1777 probably in Virginia and Elizabeth Ballard James born about 1781, also probably in Virginia. Joseph and Elizabeth were married 13 Dec 1793 in Bedford County, Virginia
       Jesse married Rebecca Gibson born about 1804 in Kentucky, the daughter of Garret ad Rachel Reynolds Gibson on 19 January 1821 in Monroe County, Indiana. During their stay in Indiana Jesse owned land in Putnam, Carroll and Greene Counties. Six of their eight children were born in Indiana. Garret was born about 1822, Rebecca about 1823, Lucinda about 1826, Joseph Thomas about 1827, William M. 16 Nov 1830 (died 21 June 1915) and Rachel about 1833. Some sources say that William and Rachel may have been born in Iowa, but records indicate that they were both born in Indiana. John Ballard was born about 1835 in Arkansas and Hiram Lewis was born 14 Feb 1844 in Ozark County Missouri.
       Jesse and Rebecca reportedly moved from Indiana to Iowa, then to Arkansas before settling in Ozark County, Missouri between 1835 and 1844. Jesse built the first dam across the north fork of the White River on his property (SW 1/4 of NE 1/4 of Section 15, Township 24 Range 11) near Dora in Ozark County to hold water to power the Sawmill and Gristmill he built there. He prospered there and was a highly respected member of the community.
       Rebecca died sometime between 1851 and 1856. Jesse married (2) Mrs. Elizabeth Campbell Benge Bridges born about 1821 probably in Ohio. She was the daughter of Robert and Rachel Morris Campbell and was twice a widow. She married (1) Darkus Benge about 1846 and had two children by him, Darkes Margaret ban 10 Dec 1846 and Thomas W. born about 1848. Elizabeth later married a Mr. Bridges probably about 1851. She had one childe of this marriage, Sarah born May 1852. Jesse had at least one child, Hiram Lewis who was 12 and still at home at the time of Jesse and Elizabeth's marriage. Elizabeth had three her three children, Margaret 9, Thomas W. 7 and Sarah 4. Jesse and Elizabeth had two children during their marriage, James Lee born 9 April 1857 and Nancy Ann born 21 Dec 1859, said to be the first white child born at West Plains. After Jesse's tragic death, Elizabeth married (4) Harry Clark on 27 Sept 1863 and had a daughter Frances "Fanny" Clark.
       Different versions of the date of Jesse's death and burial exist. One says that it occurred following the battle of Wilson Creek in 1861. The other says that it took place following the Battle of Pea Ridge in 1862.
       The story goes: A band of Rowdy Confederate irregulars came down through Douglas, Ozark, Howell, and Oregon Counties on an unauthorized punishing raid. Their mission was to hang or run out of Southern Missouri any Northern Sympathizers. Jesse may well have been a Northern Sympathizer, because at Least two of his sons, John Ballard and
       Hiram Lewis served in the Union Army during the Civil War. In any case, the raiders felt justified to hang Jesse and a Mr. Brown for the heinous crime of milling grain for Union Troops and Sympathizers, ignoring the fact the he milled grain fro Confederate Sympathizers as well.
       One version of the story relates that a third man was save from hanging by the arrival of Home Guard Troops, causing the raiders to beat a hasty retreat. This version is not likely to have occurred due to the fact that the raiders remained in the area long enough to pose for a photograph with the hanging corpses of Jesse James and Mr. Brown, much as a party of hunters might pose with the carcasses of their trophies of their hunt.
       Conflicting accounts exist regarding the burial of the two hanged men. One states that Elizabeth, Jesse's widow, rode a horse under his hanging body, cut him down across the horse's back, then took him home and buried him there in an unmarked grave.
       Another version relates that the women folk of the two hanged men dug graves beneath their hanging bodies, placed burial clothes in the graves, cut them down and completed dressing them, burying them where they were slain.
       This is but one of the numerous tragic examples of violence by neighbor against neighbor that occurred in Southern Missouri, as well as all across the country during the Civil War.
