William Peyton Carr: was born around 1808 in East Virginia. He married Nancy Mayhall, in Franklin Cty., KY. 28 September 1835 (marriage records show them married in Shelby Cty., and registering the marriage in Franklin Cty.) She was born in Locust Grove Kentucky. The United States Board on Geographic names says that Locust Grove has two locations in Kentucky. The first is located in the Southwest portion of Clark County, three miles east of Athens and eleven miles southwest of Winchester. The second is located in the western portion of Pendelton County, eight miles west of Falmouth. But in 1840 they are listed as living at Locust Grove in Franklin County; they have 2 girls and 1 boy in the family.

In 1850- The William Carr family is in Franklin County, KY. with an address of Locust Grove. They have the following children: Sarah A. (14), James W. (12), Martha (9), Emily (6), Nancy (5), Lewis (2). I believe that Lewis (2) in 1850 must have died before 1860. James William named one of his sons Louis Larkin born 14, September, 1869.

By 1853 they are in Morgan County Illinois as Americus was born there that year. (James R. Carr)

In 1860- The William Carr family is in Brown County, Elkhorn Township, IL. Their children are: Martha (17), James William (19), Emily (15), Nancy (13), Alva (8), Americus (7), Hummel (5), Roan (2).

From marriages in Kentucky-Microfich- Sarah Ann Carr married Riley John Harrod in Franklin Cty., KY. 18 June, 1857. In the 1870 Census of Franklin County KY. The Riley Harrod family is listed: Riley (38), Sarah (36), James (12), Marion (9), Geraldine (8), Dennis (6), John (4) Quarles (Charles ?) (1); address Bald Knob. Sarah Ann Harrod is buried in the Harrod Cemetery (Highway 12 at Polsgrove) [19 Sep 1833 - 17 Oct 1910]. Later records show that Americus Carr was born in Morgan Cty., IL (17 ?? 1853 - ?? ?? 1886) The older children were born in Kentucky. Emily Carr married David Zebediah Martin in Brown County, 2 October 1860. Sometime between 1860 and 1870, Martha Carr married a David Reed. Do not know the date or place. They are buried in Hume, MO. David Reed (12 Aug 1839 - 17 May 1899); Martha Carr Reed (1 Dec 1842 - 27 Dec 1928).

By 9 August 1862- They were in Perry, Pike County Illinois as James William enlisted in the 99th Illinois Volunteer Infantry in Pike County and listed Perry as his place of residence. He returned there after he was mustered out 31 July, 1865. In 1870- (James R. Carr)

The william Carr family is in Hancock County, St. Albans Twp: with a Warsaw Address. Their children are: Alvin (19), Americus (15), Hamil (13) (Harriet), Roan Ophelia (11), Mary (8). James William Carr married Mary Symmonds in Hancock Cty,.7 April 1867. Nancy Jane Carr married William Price DeWitt in Hancock Cty., 3 April 1867. Alvin Carr married Olive Baker in Hancock Cty., 6 November 1873. Americus Carr married Lydia Luella Tanner in Hancock Cty., 3 Feb. 1878.

In 1880- The William Carr family is in Hancock County, St Albans Township. By now they are living in Stillwell. Their children are: Roan Ophelia (18) and Mary (16). Harriett (Hamil) Carr married Joseph Markland in Hancock County 16 Nov. 1878 Roan Ophelia Carr married Hugh W. Markland in Hancock County 26 December 1880. I have not found any further information on Mary Carr.

William Peyton Carr: Died 21 December 1893 in Stillwell, and is buried in the West Point Cemetery without a stone. According to the newspaper notice, when William Peyton Carr died he was survived by his wife, four daughters and one son. I think this is in error; Sarah, Martha, Emily, Nancy, Hattie and Ophelia were still living, plus the son Alvin. Nancy Mayhall Carr died around 1896. [William Peyton Carr was evidently a farmer. Their home in Stillwell was Lot 4 - Block 8. Lynn Henry Biswell owned this property in 1985.] (Lillian Pierson Hoover)

CARTHAGE GAZETTE December 29, 1893 Stillwell notes- OLD FATHER CARR was called away December 21. His health has been very poor for several years and at last ended fatally. He was about 86 years of age; was a member of the Christian Church and leaves to mourn a wife and 5 children, one son and four daughters. Interrment took place at West Point Cemetery.

James William (billy) Carr Cpl Co. B 99th Ill Regt.Inf.Mar 4 1840 -June 4 1886 on his stone. Early factual information came from Ethel C Symmonds Manning, Box 454 Palmyra, MO. 63641 573-769-4380.

His stone, says that he was born, 4, March 1840, family tradition, and the obituary's of several of his children, and his army records have him born in Franklin County Kentucky.

On August 9th 1862, he enlisted in the 99th Regt. IL Vol. at Perry, in Pike Cty, and his place of residence, was listed on Regimental records, As Perry. He was described on his army records as 5 ft 8 inches in height, fair complexion, fair hair, and having blue eyes.He was mustered in on August 23, 1862. At Florence, in Pike Cty served as a corporal in Co. B, and was musteredout of the 99th Illinois (consolidated) Infantry Battalion July 31, 1865.

There is a family legend that he was discharged early because the army thought he was dying of a lung disease, but according to the Regimental records he served the whole life of the Regiment. He was sick at Overton Hospital. Memphis, Tenn from April through Dec of 1863 of a lung disease that he contracted due to exposure between West plains and Pilot Knob MO. and he took two 30 day furlough's in a row from Nov. through Dec of 1864.

He returned to Pike County after his discharge from the army, and on April 7, 1867 he was married in Hancock county at his father in-law's residence, in Walker Twp.

So some time between July of 1865 and 1867 he moved up to Hancock County. Spending the rest of his life there and farming near Westpoint in St Albans Twp.

He was sick with stomach and chest pains the rest of his life, described by his doctor as thin and emaciated. Dying at age 46 of lung disease.

Adjutant General's Report History of the Ninety-Ninth Infantry.

The Ninety-Ninth Infantry was organized in Pike County in August,1862, by Colonel George W. K. Bailey, of Pittsfield, and was mustered in at Florence, Pike County, August 23 by Captain J. H. Rathbone; on the same day moved to St. Louis, Mo., and went into Benton Barracks on the 24th, where it received it's equipments, being the first Regiment out of the State under the call of 1862.

September 8, was sent to Rolla, Mo., thence, September 17, to Salem, Dent county, thence, November 20, to Houston, Texas county. Was assigned to the Brigade of Brigadier General Fitz Henry Warren. Was engaged in a skirmish at Bear Creek, losing 1 killed 4 wounded and 1 taken prisoner, and in the battle of Hartsville lost 35 killed and wounded.

January 27, 1863, moved to West Plains, Howell county, reporting to Brigadier General Davidson.

March 3, moved to Pilot Knob, thence to St Genevieve.

March 15, embarked for Milliken's Bend, La; was assigned to General Benton's Brigade, General E. H. Carr's Division, General McClernand's Thirteenth Army Corps.

Left Millien's Bend April 11, arrived at New Carthage 12th. Marched down Roundway Bayou in Louisiana, passed Vicksburg and Grand Gulf. Crossed the river April 30 and after marching all night met the enemy at Magnolia Hills, near Port Gibson, Miss.; lost 37 killed and wounded.

Marched with General Grant's army toward Jackson, Miss.; was held in reserve at the battle of Champion Hills (the hardest one-day battle fought in the west.) Started into the engagement at nightfall, pursued the retreating rebels to Edwards Station and engaged them the next morning; charged upon their works at Black River and drove them across the river, capturing many prisoners. Our loss was light.

On the 19th of May was at the defences of Vicksburg. On the 22d the Regiment took a prominent part in the assault, losing, out of 300 men 103 killed and wounded. The Colonel and Major were wounded early in the day, leaving Captain A. C. Mathews in command. It's line, during the day was close to the enemy's works, and it's colors planted on their breast-works. This position was held by the Ninty-Ninth until 4 o'clock p. m., when it was relieved by another regiment, and moved back 150 yards to where its knapsacks had been left. While calling roll the line which had relieved the Regiment was driven back in great confusion. The Ninety-Ninth advanced, and opening a heavy fire, drove the enemy back into his works and held him there, probably saving the whole Division from stampede.

Was engaged during the siege in General Benton's Brigade-Eighth and Eighteenth Indiana, and Thirty-Third and Ninety-Ninth Illinois. The Ninety-Ninth lost during the entire campaign and siege, 223 killed, wounded and missing.

On July 5th the Ninth, Thirteenth and Fifteenth Army Corps, Major General Sherman commanding, moved after Johnson's army to Jackson. Returned to Vicksburg July 24. On 21st of August moved to New Orleans, and on 26th went into camp at Brashear City.

October 3, 1863, the Campaign of the Tesche was commenced. The Regiment was in several skirmishes, and a detachment of the Regiment, Captain A. C. Mathews commanding, was engaged in the battle of Grand Coteau. On 9th November, returned to Brashear City, and moved to New Orleans.

In the assault of Vicksburg May 22, the color bearer, the gallant young hero William Sitton, was wounded, when the invinciple Tom Higgins grasped the stars and stripes, and carried them into the breastworks, where he was captured, and lost the stand of colors. In 1873 the colors were sent from Richmond, Va., to Philadelphia, Pa.,thence to Springfield, Ill., where they now are. Stains of blood can yet be seen on them, the patriot blood of the lamented Sitton.

November 16, embarked for Texas. On 25th, landed at Mustang Island, and marching up to Matagorda Island, commenced the attack on Fort Esperanza, which was soon surendered. The Ninety-Ninth remained in Texas during the spring of 1864.

On 16th of June, 1864, it evacuated the island and reported to General Reynolds, at Algiers La. The Regiment performed garrison duty on the Mississippi during the entire summer. in First Brigade, Brigadier General Slack; First Division, General Dennis; Nineteenth Corps, General Reynolds. The Ninety-Ninth was brigaded with Twenty-First Iowa, Twenty-Ninth Wisconsin and Forty-Seventh Indiana.

In November, 1864, moved to Memphis. Here the Regiment was consolidated into a Battalion of five companies, and Lieutenant Colonel A. C. Mathews assigned to command. Colonel Bailey, and other supernumerary officers, being mustered out.

Moved to Germantown, and went on duty guarding railroad. On December 25, three men of the Battalion were captured and murdered by guerrillas. Moved to Memphis, December 28. On January 1, 1865, embarked for NewOrleans, and arrived on the 9th. On 1st February, embarked for Dauphine Island, Ala.. Was assigned to First Brigade, First Division, Thirteenth Corps, with Twenty-First Iowa, Forty-Seventh Indiana and Twenty-Ninth Wisconsin General Slack commanding Brigade, Brigadier General Veatch commanding Division.

On March 17th moved to Fort Morgan, and on 26th, arrived at Fish River. Took part in the siege of Spanish Fort, until the 30th, when the Division was sent to General Steele's Army, and April 1, went into position at Fort Blakely. The Ninety-Ninth assisted in its investment and capture, and, on the 12th, entered Mobile.

In June, 1865, the Division was ordered to Red River, to receive the surrender of Kirby Smith, and it proceeded to Shreveport, La. From this place Colonel Mathews was detailed to proceed, with a body-guard of the Sixth Missouri Cavalry, to the Indian Territory, and receive the surrender of Brigadier General's Cooper and Standwaite, and to form temporary treaties of peace with the Indian tribes. The Colonel formed treaties with ten tribes-including the Choctaw's, Cherokee's, Chickasaw and Osage's-and returned (having traveled a thousand miles) on the 3d of July.

On 19th ordered to Baton Rouge. On 31st of July mustered out by Captain E. S. Hawk, A. C. M..

Arrived at Springfield, Ill., August 6, 1865, and received final payment and discharge August 9, 1865, and by midnight of the same day the surviving veterans were in their own county.

The Ninety-Ninth had three years of active service and were in the states of Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and Alabama.

The Ninety-Ninth was often honored by having important staff positions given to its line officers. Captain, afterward Colonel Mathews, was on staff duty with different Generals, also Lieutenants Sever, Bowsman and Kinne. Captain Massie was A. A. Q. M. and A. A. C. S. and was A. A. A. General in the battles at Spanish Fort and Blakely. No particular distinction is claimed for the officers named, but this mention is due them and the Regiment, as the position came to them unsought, and the survivors of the old Regiment take just pride in remembering the gallant and famous commanders with whom they served, namely, Grant, Sherman, Granger, Steele, Reynolds, Canby, Carr, McGinnis, Veatch, Slack, Lawler, Washburn and Scheck.

Shortly after their discharge the survivors, their wives and sweethearts, were given a grand dinner by the citizens of Pittsfield, where 3 years before over 900 men had marched out to do and die for their country. At the banquet less than 350 partook of the feast.

The Ninety-Ninth was in the following battles and skirmishes: Beaver Creek, Mo., Hartsville, Mo., Magnolia Hills, Miss., Raymond, Miss., Champion Hill, Miss., Black River, Miss., Vicksburg, Miss., Jackson, Miss., Fort Esperanza, Tex., Grand Coteau, La., Fish River, Ala., Spanish Fort, Ala., and Blakely, Ala..

Took Baby Found in Burlington Station Last March into His Home

Quincy Whig: Francis Leo Harris Carr, the seven months old baby boy found in Burlington station last March is again an orphan. His Foster father, Franklin M. Carr aged 48 years, was found dead in his home two miles west of Stillwell at 4:00 o'clock Tuesday afternoon.

Francis Leo Harris came into the minds of the readers of Quincy papers last March when he was found sitting up in a baby carriage in the woman's waiting room of The Burlington station. After many hours waiting the policeman on the beat was forced to believe that the child had been abandoned and took it to the police station where Probation Officer Nolan was notified.

The child was taken to the Home for the Friendless where he was cared for a short time before being adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Carr, who were already the parents of four children.

During the time that the officials were trying to locate the parents of the child or someone who would take it to raise it was christened Francis Leo. It later was given the name of Harris, and, when adopted by Mr. Carr, took the foster father's name.

Shortly after the noon hour Mr. Carr had gone into one of the rooms in his home to rest, which was his custom. Following in the afternoon at 4 o'clock his wife went into the room to awaken him and found him lying on the floor, in an unconscious condition.

Coroner Lunds of Augusta was notified and arrived Wednesday morning and conducted an inquest. Three witnesses testified. The wife, Frank Parker, who was first to arrive and Vincent Gurn, a neighbor. The coroners jury composed of Dr. F. A. Hanson, as foreman, Harve Tanner, Gleen Tanner, George Adair, Nathan Hopson and W. S. Felgar, returned a verdict that death was caused by acute indigestion.

Mr. Carr was born Feb. 2, 1868, and was 48 years old. He was married to Mary Sutherland in 1892. Four children were born, Mrs. Nellie Duncan of near Augusta, Mrs. Flora Staff of the Webster neighborhood and mrs Bertha Smith of near Lorain and Iva at home. At the time the baby Francis Leo was left in the Quincy station, Mr. and Mrs. Carr decided to take him into their home, if it could be so arranged and on March 4, 1916, he became a member of the Carr family. He is today in perfect health. Nellie May Carr b. 11 Dec 1892, Stillwell, Hancock Cty., Illinois, m. (1) 4 Sep 1912, John W.

William Price DeWitt.

William Price DeWitt, son of Price and Sarah DeWitt, was born June 30, 1847, in Scott County, Ind., and died July 14, 1918, at 3:55 p. m.

He, with his parents, came to Illinois when but a small boy, where he grew to manhood. He was united in marriage to Nancy Jane Carr April 3, 1867, and to this union were born twelve children, four of whom, together with the companion of his youth, preceeded him to the great beyond, the wife and mother dying January 29, 1900. He was united in marriage to Mary J. Black August 20, 1902.

He, together with his first wife, became Christians uniting with the United Bretheren church nearly 40 years ago. Twenty years later they united with the Christian church at Timewell, of which church he was a faithful and respected member up to the time of his death. He was sincere in his religious convictions, believing in his Saviour with the simplicity of a little child, and if he erred, which we all do, it was a matter of misjudgement, and not intentionally.. He was honest to the last penny, and as a Christian citizen he had the respect of all who knew him. He was retiring in disposition, and to have him as a friend, was to have a friend indeed.

The eight living children are: Mrs. Rosetta Bennet, of Cynthia, Ind.; Mrs. Orsie Pierson, of Timewell; W. B. DeWitt, of Clayton; A. I. DeWitt, of Galesburgh; Marvin P. DeWitt, of Kellerville; Miss Nora DeWitt, of Timewell, and Floyd Edward DeWitt of Liberty. He also leave his wife and a host of other relatives and friends, also one sister, Mrs. Tish Gunn.

Roann Ophelia Markland

Roann Ophelia, daughter of Wm. and Nancy Carr, was born in Brown County, Ill., Jan. 18th, 1859, and departed this life at Colorado Springs, Colo., Nov. 23, 1919 aged 60 years 10 months, 5 days.

She removed with her parents, brothers and sisters to Hancock county while still quite young and practically all her life has been spent near Stillwell.

She was united in marriage to Hugh W. Markland on Dec. 26, 1880. To this union were born three children: Iona M., now Mrs. Ralph Crawford, of West Point, Ill.; Earl, also of West Point, and Mollie B., now Mrs. Chas Peterson of Hamilton, Ill.

While quite young she gave her heart to her master and gave her life into his keeping and we believe she could well say with the apostle of old, "I know whom I have believed and am persuaded He is able to keep that which I have commited to Him against that day."

Mrs. Markland had been in failing health since an attack of influenza a year ago. In September she, with her husband, made the journey West in search of health. The change seemed to greatly benefit and she was gaining in health until Friday, Nov. 21, when she was taken with a severe cold which rapidly developed in pneumonia and the end came about 9:30 o'clock on Sunday evening.

She was preceeded in death by her father and mother and eight brothers and sisters.

She leaves to mourn her passing, besides her husband and children, one brother Alvin A. Carr of Stillwell, Ill., and two sisters, Mrs. Martha L. Reed, of Kansas City, Mo., Mrs. Hattie I. Markland of Ellensburg, Washington, besides many other relatives and friends.

Mrs. Markland was a good and faithful wife, a true and affectionate mother and a kind neighbor. She truly was a good woman and earths loss is heaven's gain.

"Servant of God well done. Thy glorious warfare's past; The battles fought, the race is won. And thou art crowned at last."

Funeral services were conducted from the Stillwell Christian church Friday, Nov. 28, 1919, at 2 o'clock, by L. H. Hooe, of Bowen Ill. Appropriate music was furnished by a mixed quartette.

A large crowd was in attendance. Her body was laid to rest in the West Point Cemetery.
