34 - COLT, CITY OF - - - - - - BUSINESS/CHURCHES/ORGANIZATIONS- IN 1954-(AKA TAYLOR'S CREEK) 1954 St.Francis County History-During the early history of St.Francis County, Taylor's Creek, which later developed into Colt when the Iron Mountain railroad was constructed through that area, was widely known because it was on the famous Military Road. Taylor's Creek got its name from W.Mitchel Taylor, one of the first settlers about where Colt is now. He was born in Franklin Co., N.Carolina, in 1826. He built a large log house on what is known as the Blaylock Place, one mile south of Colt, now owned by Fred McCollum, Sr. The house was built of handhewn poplar logs, cut on his place and hewn with a whipsaw and put together with wooden pegs filled between the logs with small pieces of wood, mud, and mortar. The stage coach travelling the Military Road with the mail stopped there to change horses. Mr.Taylor married Nancy Casbeer in 1827 and had 14 children. After her death he married Mrs.Mary Temp'e in 1852 and had six children. He also had two step children. He had an exceptionally brilliant mind and made many trips by horseback to Little Rock to transact business for friends and relatives. He owned about 1500 acres of land, extending down to Dark Corner. When one of his children married, he gave them their choice of 80 acres of land or one thousand dollars. He built the school house and church, non-denominational, known as Oak Hill. The church was constructed of lumber made by his whipsaw. The seats were poles, cut flat on one side with pegs for legs. Mr.Taylor was eighty at the time of his death, Dec.11,1884. His surviving descendants include six grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. This information was compiled by Mrs.P.S.Stapleton, great granddaughter of Mr.Taylor's. As mentioned above the present town of Colt at the north end of St.Francis County on Highway 1 and the Missouri Pacific, ws established in 1882, when the old Iron Mountain Railroad put a station there. It was called Colt Station fo the railroad conductor of that name who built the railroad through that section of the county. Numerous residents at that time thought the new town should be called Taylor in honor of Mitchell Taylor, but he asked them to name it for the railroad contractor. The town of Colt was incorporated in 1916. At the time Colt was incorporated it had two cotton gins, six general stores, one drug store and two saw mills. In 1954 Colt now has two stores, one filling station and one gin. The town has two churches, Methodist and Baptist.

30-31 - HUGHES, CITY OF - - - - - - Hughes is the second largest town in St.Francis County and is located in the extreme southestern part of the county about five miles from the Mississippi River levee. It was incorporated in 1916 and the 1950 U.S.CENSUS listed the population at 1669. The history of Hughes is interwoven with the "steamboat days" on the Mississippi, long before the one-time Iron Mountain tried and failed and later the Missouri Pacific came through Hughes. While Hughes is now about seven miles from the nearest channel of the Mississippi River, it would only be five miles had the river not cut through a large bend in the late 1800's, and left what is now Peters Island. As late as 1906, during high water many of the boats came around the Arkansas side of Peters Island, but the old channel is filled in now in many places. Hughes terrtitory was served almost entirely by boats before the railroad came in 1913. During low water the nearest boat landing was 10 or 12 miles, either above or below Peters Island. During the wet winter months, the roads were so bad, drainage almost nill and the mud so deep and heavy, it was impossible to travel by surrey to the boat landings and required four miles to pull the heavy wagons and baggage to the river. The mud splattered travellers would rush to their staterooms as soon as they were on board and don clean clothes before they came out to mingle with their friends. Because of bad roads, no drainage and swamps, it was impractical to farm land very far from the river so there was very little cultivation where Hughes now stands. The riverside area was called the "front" and the Hughes area the "back". When the war between the states started, there were a number of large plantations along the river front. A Doctor Peters owned thousands of acres, including Peters Island, before it was formed. Some of his descendants owned several thousand acres adjacent to Dr.Peters and the Hodges Farm was the scene of Federal raids by cavalry unloaded on the Phil Allen Farm was used as a hospital by the Federals and that the house was built by the Burcketts, who were supposed to be members of the infamous John Murrel's outlaw gang. Shortly after the War, Otto Seyppel bought a large plantation and established a post office and boat landing, about 15 miles from what ws later to become Hughes. About the turn of the century, Russell Gardner of Banner Buggy fame and wealth in St.Louis, bought 12,000 acres at what was then called Fritz Landing. He cleared some land for cultivation but his principal idea was to have a large hunting reserve. He came down the river on his yacht Santa Claus. Heowned nearly all the land surrounding Horseshoe and other nearby lakes. He had the landing name changed to Bruin and a post office with that name established there, much to the disgust of Old Man Fritz, who thought his name should be perpetuated by retaining the landing name. Bruin, had one of the best landings in this section and was widely used. The mail, brought in by steamers and also rowed across the river from Penton, Miss., where the Yazoo City Railroad delivered the mail, was carried to various little post offices down the river. One such post office was Bledsoe, about five miles from the what is now called Hughes. Bledson served the Hughes territory until after the railroad was in operation in 1914. Citizens scattered north of Hughes were served by the post office at Democrat, formerly operated by Squire Thomas on land now owned by Grady Trainor.

Asbury Horton, father of Eugene L., Havus Asbury, Tom and Etta Horton, and family left New Albany, Miss. in 1873 to settle in Texas but when they reached Fitzpatrick farm, now Summersweet Orchards, in their covered wagon, they decided to settle on the Ridge. Early settlers of this community:McKnights, Dorris's, Stouts, Webbs, Peeveys, Dillons, Rhodes, Eldridges, Allens, Swans and McDougals. These citizens asked that a post office be established in the community, and E.H.Horton was the first Postmaster. The name given the post office was "New Castle", hence, the name of the the community. The post office was abandoned when Rural Free Delivery was established.

32 - PALESTINE, TOWN OF - - - - - - BUSINESS/CHURCHES/ORGANIZATIONS- IN 1954-(AKA TAYLOR'S CREEK) 1954 St.Francis County History-During the early history of St.Francis County, Taylor's Creek, which later developed into Colt when the Iron Mountain railroad was constructed through that area, was widely known because it was on the famous Military Road. Taylor's Creek got its name from W.Mitchel Taylor, one of the first settlers about where Colt is now. He was born in Franklin Co., N.Carolina, in 1826. He built a large log house on what is known as the Blaylock Place, one mile south of Colt, now owned by Fred McCollum, Sr. The house was built of handhewn poplar logs, cut on his place and hewn with a whipsaw and put together with wooden pegs filled between the logs with small pieces of wood, mud, and mortar. The stage coach travelling the Military Road with the mail stopped there to change horses. Mr.Taylor married Nancy Casbeer in 1827 and had 14 children. After her death he married Mrs.Mary Temp'e in 1852 and had six children. He also had two step children. He had an exceptionally brilliant mind and made many trips by horseback to Little Rock to transact business for friends and relatives. He owned about 1500 acres of land, extending down to Dark Corner. When one of his children married, he gave them their choice of 80 acres of land or one thousand dollars. He built the school house and church, non-denominational, known as Oak Hill. The church was constructed of lumber made by his whipsaw. The seats were poles, cut flat on one side with pegs for legs. Mr.Taylor was eighty at the time of his death, Dec.11,1884. His surviving descendants include six grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. This information was compiled by Mrs.P.S.Stapleton, great granddaughter of Mr.Taylor's. As mentioned above the present town of Colt at the north end of St.Francis County on Highway 1 and the Missouri Pacific, ws established in 1882, when the old Iron Mountain Railroad put a station there. It was called Colt Station fo the railroad conductor of that name who built the railroad through that section of the county. Numerous residents at that time thought the new town should be called Taylor in honor of Mitchell Taylor, but he asked them to name it for the railroad contractor. The town of Colt was incorporated in 1816. At the time Colt was incorporated it had two cotton gins, six general stores, one drug store and two saw mills. In 1954 Colt now has two stores, one filling station and one gin. The town has two churches, Methodist and Baptist. 2007:Palestine -City of-101 Higgins St Palestine, AR 72372 Map(870) 581-2585

The dryer in 1953 handled about 1,250,000 bushels of rice and is expanding its campacity 300,000 bushels more. It was in 1929. too, that a tornado hit the town, killing five people near the town, injuring others in the community and destroying thousands of dollars worth of property. The first lot sale ws in 1878. The 1950 census shows 406 population. The Methodist, Baptist and Lutheran congregations hold regular services.
