 Belfast Monument:

 

Descendants of Major James Poe probable sons, Simon Poe and John Poe established the community of Belfast in what was then Saline County, now part of Grant County. The family had moved from Anson County, North Carolina to Fayette County in the 1820s. While many stayed put in Alabama, some family members decided to move on to Arkansas. They arrived by 1852.  Families from Belfast tell the story of a wagon train of pioneers traveling together into Arkansas. The site for Belfast was chosen because a natural stream bubbled from the ground. John Poe who is buried there with his wife, Sarah Threet, established Poe Cemetery.

John Poe (1785-1859) and wife, Sarah Threet (1794 - 1861)

 

John Poe’s will is dated 26 April 1858. He wrote a codicil dated 5 February 1859, mentioning the change due to the death of his son, Oliver Perry Poe (wife Mariah Nall). Oliver Perry Poe had been on a visit from Alabama, where he remained when John and most of the family relocated to Saline County, Arkansas. John Poe’s will was “filed for record” on 4 October 1859. Sarah Threet Poe moved to Benton and is listed there in the 1860 Arkansas census. She is next door to her daughter Sarah Jane Poe – married to Joab Watson. Sarah died less than two years after John.

Thomas Poe Will

 

Former Slaves of John and son, Thomas Poe

 

I am certain the African American Gilbert Poe in the Indian Territory Census of 1900 is the same Gilbert Poe in Pulaski Co, AR in 1880 and listed in the will of John Poe in 1859.

The age of 35 in 1880 fits the age of 55 for the Indian Territory Gilbert Poe in 1900. And, clearly we see that wife Caroline and son Lewis (age 8 in 1880) is next in the 1900 census aged 27.

Another former slave I want to track is Robert Poe. He was 42 in 1870. He and wife were born in North Carolina. In the 1870 census we see that most children were "at school". I know that Robert is one of the folks who for quite a while stayed nearby the old Poe farm in Grant (Saline) Co. AR where he had been a slave under John Poe.

Gilbert is listed as a farmer in Indian Territory and his son is a laborer. Son Lewis is a day laborer -- probably on his father's or nearby farms.

CONFEDERATE ARKANSAS TROOPS

 

Poe's Battalion, Arkansas Cavalry

 

Poe's Cavalry Battalion was assembled during the early spring of 1864 and was composed of part of the 11th Arkansas Regiment, prisoners of war, deserters, etc. It was assigned to Colonel W. A. Crawford's and J. C. Wrights's Brigade, Trans-Mississippi, and fought at Poison Spring and Marks' Mills. The unit then operated along the Saline River in Arkansas and later disbanded. Major James T. Poe was in command.

               Thomas Poe had 10 slaves in inventory, appraised at $4,800.

Note from William Threet Poe Bible

 

Transcript of Will

his land was located in what is now Grant County. It is described in the tax records:

SE 1/4 of SE 1/4 of Section 13

NE 1/4 of NW 1/4 of Section 24

all in township 4 South of Range 14 West

 

William Threet Poe had three wives. His first two wives Sarah Reynolds and Rosty Reynolds were sisters. Rosty had been married to Thomas Poe (William Threet's brother) until his death. Thomas's children and W. T.'s children were raised together.

 

William Threet Poe lived in Pickens Co., AL where he probably met the Reynolds family as this is one of the few places in the census reports where Reynolds may be found.

The Reynolds probably came from Northern SC along the Pee Dee River downstream from where the Poe's were settled in Anson Co, NC. The Threet family also lived in this area of SC. More Reynolds, see 1820 SC census for counties of Kershaw, Newberry, Charter Originally probably from VA.  After the Civil War W. T. redeemed many of his relatives' lands by paying the taxes.

Except from a letter of "Doc" Walton's (Winfred Walton, son of Sarah Alma Poe and Dr. James Wyatt Walton - son of James Walton and Amy Angelina Poe):

 

Simon Poe of Fayette County Alabama gave his daughter, Gatsy Lucas wife of Thomas Lucas a Negro Woman Slave and her four children. This deed was recorded in Fayette County Ala. 27 Nov. 1850 and was notarized by Calvin Poe, Justice of The Peace. It was later recorded in Saline County, Ark. ( 8 Sept. 1858). . Thomas and Gatsy L were the [?] of [?] Glenn (mentioned above). We think our Simon B. Poe was a son of this Simon Poe and a [?] James Poe. If so Mrs. Glenn and Dads Mother [Amy Angelina Poe] were first cousin (Gatsy would actually be Amy Angelina Poe's aunt). This Deed is. recorded in Record Book E, Volume 6 Page 292 in. Fayette Co., Ala. and is dated 2 Dec. 1850. It is 1870 Grant County Census recorded in. Deed Book E Page 413 S, September 1858.

Ruby Poe (1879-1891)

Born in Clinton, Arkansas, in 1879, Ruby Poe was a younger sister of Mrs. Helen Tompkins of Prescott.  She had come to Prescott to attend school.  She died of "slow fever", also known as bruecellosis or undulant fever.  She had had the fever some time but remained up and about.  Her condition worsened suddenly, and she died on November 10, 1891.  "Slow fever" was a common cause of death in this era.

 

               ** Transcriber note:  Ruby's mother is Lelia A. Brown, 2nd wife of William Thomas Poe.  

                                    Helen's mother is Tabitha Unknown, 1st wife of William.  **

 

 

Helen Poe Tompkins (1866-1932)

Born on February 4, 1866 at West Point, Arkansas, Helen Nancy Poe was the daughter of Major W. T. Poe and his wife Lelia Brown.  Her father served with General Lee in Virginia and in J.E.B. Stuart's Cavalry.  The Poe family had come to Arkansas from Alabama.  Helen Poe married W. V. Tompkins at Clinton, Arkansas, on November 20, 1884, and moved to Prescott.  She and her husband had a son and a daughter.  She died at home in Prescott on September 13, 1932.

 

 

William Vernon Tompkins (1861-1953)

Born on December 16, 1861, at West Point in White County, Arkansas, W. V. Tompkins was the son of William Temple Tompkins, A Virginian, and Mary Hope, a Tennessean.  His father was killed during Civil War.  Tompkins was raised and educated by his mother and J. C. Bradshaw, his step-father, at Clinton, Van Buren County, Arkansas.  He attended college at Quitman in 1878 and 1879 and became interested in the law.  He progressed quickly in his studies and was licensed to practice in circuit courts on February 14, 1883.

 

Shortly afterwards, Tompkins came to Prescott and formed a law partnership with W. E. Atkinson in April 1883.  In June 1884, he was licensed to practice before the Arkansas Supreme Court.  He returned to Clinton to marry Helen Nancy Poe in November 1884.  In 1888, he formed a law practice with M. W. Greeson which was finally dissolved in January 1899.  In 1895, President Cleveland appointed Tompkins as Mineral Land Commissioner to classify the Northern Pacific Land Grant in western Montana.  He continued in this work for four years before resigning and returning to Prescott.  In 1903, he entered into law practice with T. C. McRae.  This partnership continued until McRae's death in 1929.

 

Tompkins was active in politics and in his community.  At various times, he served on the Prescott school board.  He was city recorder in 1899 and in 1900-1901 and assisted in drawing up the ordinances for the City of Prescott.  He was a Democratic Presidential Elector in 1892 when Cleveland was nominated.  He was General Attorney for the Arkansas Anti-Saloon League in 1900.  He was President of the Arkansas Bar Association in 1910-1911.  He was chairman of the State Democratic Central Committee in 1920-1924.  He and his wife joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Prescott in 1892.  He was elected an elder in 1898 and to the Board of Trustees of Arkansas Cumberland College (now College of the Ozarks) later that same year.  He remained on the Board for many years.  He also was a member of the Arkansas Committee of the Presbyterian Board of National Missions.

 

Tompkins was noted for his humor and remained active in his law practice until the time of his death.  He died in his home in Prescott of a cerebral hemorrhage on February 15, 1953.  His son, Charles H. Tompkins (1889-1975), who was also an attorney, and his wife Hazel Scott Tompkins (1899-1968), a member of the prominent Scott family, are also in the Old Section.

From:  Robert L. Woodham e-mail Woodrobert@classic.msn.com

 

My 2nd greatgrandfather, Capt. James A. Poe was in the Civil War (Company A, Gause's Ark. Regiment) and 3rd greatgrandfather Capt. R.H. Poe (Quartermaster, Glenn's Regiment, Ark. Inf.).  His other son Richard Razy Poe was a 2nd Lieutenant in the 32nd or 38th Ark Inf.

 

They all moved from Alabama in abt 1855 and resided in the area until after 1870.   RH Poe was allowed to resign his commission and leave the army in 1863 because he operated the only grist mill in White Co., and the citizens petitioned the army to discharge him so he could work it.   I have a copy of that petition with about 50 signatures of local residents of the area at that time, if you're interested.

From a Descendant of Laban C. Elliott and Martha Jane Poe

 

http://poegen.net/AR/Census/ARwhiteCo1860redRiver_LabanCelliottMarthaJanePoe.jpg

 

Laban appears out of nowhere in the 1860 census in White county.  The only connection I have at all to Fayette County is the tombstone of his first dau Francis F Elliott.  Then according to the census records they were somewhere in MS for a time prior to arriving in White Co.  There is possibly another connection that may help me along the way...not sure.  In Little Rock, where a number of my Elliott family is buried, Roselawn cemetery, beside my kin is a Dr. James Edwin Elliott and his sister Minnie.  I traced them down to being children of a Conway Elliott son of Samuel Elliott & Winney Dodd Swafford.  Samuel says he was born in NC in the 1850 Saline County, AR census but he died shortly after so we only have that one to go by..  His son Conway in 1880 says both parents were from NC.  The reason I bring them up is the fact that they too came from AL and settled in Saline County where a number of Poes settled.  Because the children are buried along with my Elliotts I am forced to think that perhaps they may be related.  Maybe Laban and Samuel as brothers.  At this point however, I cannot find Laban in any census prior to 1860 nor after 1870

--------

Laban and Martha's first child was a girl named Francis F Elliott b. 28 Apr 1846 in Alabama.  I found where Francis F Elliott married Napolean B Hilger of West Point, White County, AR on 21 May 1868 and that she died 3 Mar 1869, buried Howell Cemetery, White County.  I went to the grave to find that on her tombstone it listed her place of birth as Fayette County, AL. thus placing my Laban Elliott and his wife Martha (Mattie) Poe Elliott in Fayette County around 1846.
