Item Description: Goodspeed Publishing Co., Chicago Illinois. Spiral/Comb. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Limited Edition Reprint. 8.5" x 11". Early days in Dunklin County, MO, are recalled in this booklet, reprinted from excerpts from three rare books: Goodspeed's 1888: History of Southeast Missouri, The State of Missouri (1904), and Missouri, a Guide to the "Show Me" State, a 1930s WPA project. The 37-page spiral bound 8 1/2 x 11" booklet, is photocopied on 60# paper. A vinyl sheet protects the front cover.

Besides the names mentioned in the first part of the booklet, there are biographies of many county residents of yesteryear. Most are fairly lengthy, and often include ancestors, previous residences, children, in-laws, affiliations, war records, and business activities. In the course of this they often shed light on the early businesses, professions and institutions in the county. The biographies include: Joseph R. Allgood, John P. Allen, Dr. Eli T. Anderson, Henry A. Applegate, A.C. Austin, Rev. Martin V. Baird, Judge T.E. Baldwin, Neil S. Barham, Walter S. Blakemore, John H. Bledsoe, William G. Bragg, Ambrose D.

Item Description: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Company I of the 16th Louisiana Infantry was originally referred to as The Castor Guards from Bienville Parish, Louisiana. They were also referred to as Mabry s and Houston s after their commanders as the war progressed. They were one of several Confederate militia groups formed at Bienville at the beginning of the Civil War. The Castor Guards assembled on 1 September 1861 at the Castor Church (now the site of the Old Castor Cemetery), and rode to Camp Moore, Louisiana. As in every small community across the south, the men who formed these units were brothers, cousins and neighbors. They knew each other most, if not all of their lives. And they were now gathering to take off to the war front together. Bidding farewell to their families, the soldiers left for Camp Moore, just north of Tangipahoa, Lousiana for training. When they arrived, they were assigned as Company I of the 16th Louisiana Infantry. The 16th Regiment was officially organized on September 29, 1861, at Camp Moore. Besides the men from Bienville, it contained men from Avoyelles, East Feliciana, Caddo, Livingston, Rapides, St. Landry, and St. Helena parishes of Louisiana. There were originally a total of 851 soldiers in the regiment, including the Castor Guards. Apparently, the regiment added soldiers through recruitment as they traveled, and consolidated with other units. The regiment spent the winter at training camp in Louisiana. During the Civil War, troops could only move easily in dry months, so very few battles took place in the middle of winter. This book outlines with illustrations the four years of war that this Bienville Parish group underwent. It also contains a roster and service record of its soldiers.

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Pekin Centenary, 1849-1949: Commemorating 100 Years of Community Progress in the City of Pekin, Illinois Pekin became a city August 20, 1849, after its birth 25 years earlier in the rough and ready frontier tradition and its development as a community in that same atmosphere of violence and hardship. The river valley was dotted with Indian villages and little else in 1824 when Jonathan Tharpe built the first log cabin ever erected on the site of the city of Pekin and began farming an area including much of what is now Pekin s principal business district. Only 10 years earlier there had been organized warfare on both sides of the river between Indians and American troops and militia, ending in the withdrawal of the troops. Even Fort Clark, temporarily erected at the site of Peoria, had been abandoned and burned. However, Tharpe had no trouble with the Indians that roamed the area and had camps and villages at Pekin, on Ten Mile creek near what is now East Peoria, and on the far side of the river, and others followed him promptly. Just three years after he built his cabin, Mordecai Mobley brought in the first consignment of goods and Jacob Tharpe, Jonathan s father, set up the first store in his smoke house. That year, William H. Hodge, the county surveyor, made the original plat of Pekin. He had no surveyor s chain, and made his survey with string, a fact which accounts for the variety of measurements engineers still discover when resurveying the original town properties and blocks. One year later, in 1828, just four years after the first cabin went up, a Methodist mission was established here, and settlers began to move up to the river landing. Absolam and Joseph Dillon moved to Townsite, as it was called, and Major Nathan Cromwell came up from Sand Prairie where he had settled, and Gideon Hawley, William Haines and Dr. John Warner became Tharpe s neighbors. The first steamship came chugging up the river, churning water, blowing off steam and tooting Its whistle, so that old Jacob Tharpe thought the end of the world had come and routed his family out of their beds and summoned them to prayer. History records that one settler took after the monster with his dog and hunting rifle, and that it caused fear and consternation throughout the area. And it was then, in 1829, apparently, that the settlers ceased to be squatters and obtained legal title to their lands here after a series of incidents which resulted in the first lots costing just 28 cents apiece. The official plat was taken to Springfield in that year and an auction held to dispose of the property embracing much of what is now Pekin. The atmosphere of the land sale was typical of the robust pioneer tradition. The room was filled with men who were armed to the teeth, eyeing each other watchfully, and from time to time making threatening gestures and remarks. When the sale opened on the final day, a man identified only by the name of Harrington, reportedly jumped to his feet with pistol drawn and offered a bid of $1.25 an acre, adding that he would shoot the first man who raised that bid. Major Isaac Perkins paced the floor in a threatening manner, guns prominently displayed, and the room was quiet and tense as the auctioneer proceeded but the lands were knocked down to Harrington without another bid being offered and without gunplay. Harrington s bold victory was short-lived, however. Perkins permitted him to complete the regulations and acquire title to the lands, and then he and a group of Pekin settlers virtually kidnapped the interloper and forced him to convey the lands over to them in the original title deeds on which present ownership of most Pekin properties is still based.

And it was then, in 1829, apparently, that the settlers ceased to be squatters and obtained legal title to their lands here after a series of incidents which resulted in the first lots costing just 28 cents apiece. The official plat was taken to Springfield in that year and an auction held to dispose of the property embracing much of what is now Pekin. The atmosphere of the land sale was typical of the robust pioneer tradition. The room was filled with men who were armed to the teeth, eyeing each other watchfully, and from time to time making threatening gestures and remarks. When the sale opened on the final day, a man identified only by the name of Harrington, reportedly jumped to his feet with pistol drawn and offered a bid of $1.25 an acre, adding that he would shoot the first man who raised that bid. Major Isaac Perkins paced the floor in a threatening manner, guns prominently displayed, and the room was quiet and tense as the auctioneer proceeded but the lands were knocked down to Harrington without another bid being offered and without gunplay. Harrington s bold victory was short-lived, however. Perkins permitted him to complete the regulations and acquire title to the lands, and then he and a group of Pekin settlers virtually kidnapped the interloper and forced him to convey the lands over to them in the original title deeds on which present ownership of most Pekin properties is still based.

Item Description: University Press of Mississippi Jack, Jackson. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 160 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. MISSISSIPPI. Celebrations of homecoming by prominent Mississippians who made the return journey. With essays by Kevin Bullard, Wyatt Cooper, Bob Allan Dunaway, William Dunlap, Morgan Freeman, Carolyn Haines, Barry Hannah, Mary Donnelly Haskell, Sam Haskell, Alice Jackson, William Jeanes, Russell Knight, Johnnie Mae Maberry, Charline R. McCord, Jo McDivitt, Mary Ann Mobley, Willie Morris, Ronnie Riggs, Maureen Ryan, David Sheffield, Michael Farris Smith, Marco St. John, Scott Stricklin, Keith Thibodeaux, J. Dale Thorn, Judy H. Tucker, Cynthia Walker, Tricia Walker, Jerry W. Ward, Jr., Jesmyn Ward, Sela Ward, Norma Watkins, Dolphus Weary, and Curtis Wilkie In this collection, essayists examine their lives, their memories of Mississippi, the reasons they left the state, and what drew them back. They talk about how life differs and wears on you in the far-flung parts of our nation, and the qualities that make Mississippi unique. The writers from all corners of the state are as diverse as the regions from which they come. They are of different races, different life experiences, different talents, and different temperaments. Yet in acceding to the magical lure of Mississippi they are in many ways alike. Their roots are deep in the rich soil of this state, and they come from strong families that valued education and promoted an indomitable optimism. Successes stem from a passion, usually emerging early in life, that burns within them. But that passion is tempered, disciplined, encouraged, and influenced by the people around them, as well as the landscape and the history of their times. These essays give us a glimpse of the people and places that nurtured the young lives of the essayists and offered the values that directed them as they sought their dreams elsewhere. Often they found that opportunity was within their grasp in their home state and came back to realize their full potential. They came back, in some cases, to retire to a familiar place of pleasant memories, to family and to friends. They all have a love and respect for Mississippi and continue, back home, to use their talents to help make the state an even better place to live. 160 pages (approx.), 6 x 9 inches, 32 black and white photographs, introduction Charline R. McCord, Clinton, Mississippi, and Judy H. Tucker, Jackson, Mississippi, have published numerous books together, including Christmas Stories from Mississippi, Growing Up in Mississippi, and Christmas Memories from Mississippi, all available from the University Press of Mississippi. (Key Words: Mississippi, Essays, Kevin Bullard, Wyatt Cooper, Bob Allan Dunaway, William Dunlap, Morgan Freeman, Carolyn Haines, Barry Hannah, Mary Donnelly Haskell, Sam Haskell, Alice Jackson, William Jeanes, Russell Knight, Johnnie Mae Maberry, Charline R.
