> some light reading TROUBLES IN TANEY COUNTY - 1880’s

Wayne Glenn (The Old Record Collector) - This is James Columbus Boothe who spotted that white deer which is the primary reason Jim Billings drove down to Mincy. "Lum" was born in 1862 while the Civil War was being fought and would die on his Mincy farm in 1941. He had 2 wives. His first was Sarah Rebecca McGill(1862-1919) who was a local girl. And then in the early 1920s he married widow Hattie Middleton Turnbull (1873-1953) who was the daughter of the famous Taney County Bald Knobber George WASH MIDDLETON! Hattie was 15 years old when her daddy was murdered at a July 4th picnic in 1888 at Burlington, AR. You see WASH had killed Sam Snapp at Kirbyville and then WASH escaped from the Forsyth prison---------heading for friendlier AR. But a bounty hunter named Jim Holt trailed WASH to AR and killed him for a prize. WASH MIDDLETON is buried in Newton Co., AR. IT is unlikely that the man pictured here (Mr Boothe) ever met his father-in-law WASH. IT is believed that the real WASH was the inspiration for WASH GIBBS in the Shepherd of the Hills 1907 book. | Facebook
