Andersons of Logan Co. Arkansas

I hope that some of the remaining family find this useful.
Marshall ANDERSON was born in January 31, 1729 in Georgetown, Kentucky the son of Samuel ANDERSON and Nancy (ASHBY) Anderson. Marshall passed away on November 27, 1800 in Georgetown. Marshall and Nancy had a child Basil T. ANDERSON (1755 - 1826). Basil T. ANDERSON married Elizabeth (RANDOLPH) b. March 7, 1756, she passed away January 1, 1820. Basil and Elizabeth had a son; James ANDERSON b. September 20, 1782. He married Elizabeth (ARMISTEAD) Anderson born July 19, 1783. She passed away June 5, 1881. They had a son Charles ANDERSON b. 1803. He died in January of 1852. He married Eliza (HOUSTON) Anderson. They had a son Charles Pincney ANDERSON b. September 15, 1835.
Charles Pinkney ANDERSON was born in what is now Sevier County, Arkansas, in 1835. He was the son of Charles ANDERSON and Eliza Houston ANDERSON, sister of Sam Houston. In 1840 his parents moved to southern Logan County near Magazine Mountain. As a young man he went west to California when gold was reported. He returned by boat via Cape Horn. In 1857 he married Martha Jane ELLINGTON, daughter of Nathan ELLINGTON who was the first judge of Logan County when Logan County was formed as Sarber County. He served in the Union Army until the end of the war in 1865 and held the rank of Captain.
His wife, Martha Jane managed during the Civil War somehow to look after herself and several children in the face of threats from scalawags and possible raids from Indians. It is said that she managed to keep a pony hidden out so she could get corn ground at the mill. All livestock had been taken by the Army. Aunt Ellen who married James BOWERS said that if it had not been for Uncle David MOORE, younger brother of Mary MOORE, the wife of Judge Nathan ELLINGTON, they would not have made it.
Soon after the war Charles Pinkney ANDERSON built a house, doing a great deal of the work himself. The house was built near an oak tree beneath which he had placed his saddle for a pillow for the night while he was searching for the land which he later homesteaded. This oak tree was just to the right of the back porch steps of the house. Key TAYLOR, the son of his daughter Rose and I played many times beneath this old oak.
Charles Pinkney ANDERSON had 13 children. Years of birth are approximate. Ellen, born 1858, married Jim BOWERS. Her grandson Faubian BOWERS was a translator for President Truman at the time of the Japanese surrender aboard the Battleship Missouri.
Mattie, born 1860, married Henry BAER, a merchant in old Magazine. They moved to Salt Lake City in the early 1900's and returned to Magazine only a few times due to the difficulty of travel then.
Julie, born 1862, married ? ELKINS and lived in Texas.
Maretta, born 1864, married Charles WAGONER, editor of the Paris Progress.
Anne Elizia born 1866, married James ELKINS. She lived in Booneville, the only one of the children to settle nearby. Some of her children still live in Booneville.
Charles S., born 1868, spent most of his life in Oklahoma and died in Ada.
Thomas Sherman, born 1870, was a pharmacist in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Flora, born 1872, lived most of her life in Magazine and Paris. She was said to be a "jolly person".
Clayton, born 1874, married Annie Ellis. He was a ready-to-wear merchant in Arkansas. He died in Hugo, Oklahoma.
Seth, born 1876, who married Florence TRUMBY, lived in southern Kansas on a wheat farm.
Theodore, born 1879, died in 1898 in the Spanish-American War.
Rose, born 1882, married John TAYLOR, a minister. They lived in Arkansas and later in California. Her son, Key TAYLOR, became a Methodist minister.
Josephine, born 1884, married Grant GILLESPIE, a lawyer. She was a teacher as were her daughters who lived in Houston and Los Angeles.
Charles Pinkney ANDERSON died in December 1912. His children were scattered far and wide and helped the development and progress of the country.

Their son Jim BOWERS is Madison James BOWERS or "M.J.", Ellen and Jim also had a large family, ten children. Jim and Ellen lived out their lives in Paris Arkansas and are buried there. During his life Jim was intent to settle a long standing battle with the Dawes Commission and the Cherokee Tribe. His mother was Mary Sabra (Christie) BOWERS and based on family history all of the family members and close friends of the family had close personal knowledge that Mary was at least one half Cherokee. But because of the way the family came to Arkansas she was never included in the Roll. Armed with the family history Jim BOWERS filed application with the Dawes Commission in 1890 to include his family in the Roll. The commission ruled but never notified Jim. By 1892 Jim found a law firm to take his case to Federal District Court. The Cherokee Nation denied that any of Mary's family were listed on the Roll, in fact they are to this day. The Court ruled that the family "could not be Cherokee because they are citizens of the State of Arkansas" essentially dening our Cherokee Heritage for the entire family.
Jim and Ellen's children were Marieta J, Lilly June, Johnie, Ezra James, Ellen Edna, Charles Dennis, Freda May, Powell Clayton, Harrison M. and McKinley. There are no known living siblings.
