Source - Early Days in Arkansas 1814 - 1895

 Toward the latter part of September of the same year I met Governor Pope at Louisville, and on Sunday morning, the 30th day of September, we left on board the steamboat "Reindeer," an Arkansas River packet, commanded by Capt. Daniel Miller of the firm of Montgomery, Miller & Company, forwarding and commission merchants of Montgomery's Point, Arkansas, at the mouth of White River.

The "Reindeer" was a side-wheeler of about 600 tons burden. She was built after the pattern of most of the steamboats plying the western waters. The gentlemen's cabin was below and aft the wheel houses, and had for sleeping accommodations bunks, one above the other, and provided with curtains, an arrangement similar to that on modern sleeping cars, but very far from being so luxurious. The ladies cabin was immediately above and was provided with state rooms and some considerable show of comfort and convenience. From the wheel houses back there were wide guards and steps leading up to the ladies' cabin. In front of the ladies cabin, on the boiler deck, were accommodations for deck passengers.

This in warm weather was the most pleasant part of the boat. In front of the wheel houses there were no guards, the boat coming to a sharp point at the bow. Gov. Pope and myself were the only cabin passengers for Arkansas, although there were a large number of passengers for points along the Mississippi River as far down as Louisiana, among them Senator Black, wife and daughter, of Missis- sippi. The boat carried a heavy cargo of freight for points along the Arkansas and White Rivers. On account of the low stage of water in the Ohio River and the heavily ladened condition of the boat, we stuck on every sand-bar between Louisville and Paducah.

It was not until Sunday, October 7th, that we reached Bird's Point (now Cairo), at the mouth of the Ohio. Soon after our arrival at Paducah a large New Orleans packet landed just below the "Reindeer," and after she had been made fast and the gang- plank put out, I observed two men go ashore who seemed to be in an angry altercation about something. One of the men was very tall, while the other was of rather slight build. When they reached the wharf the larger one struck his companion in the face and knocked him down, who, as he arose to his feet, drew a long dirk knife and stabbed his assailant to the heart, killing him instantly. The murderer started to run, but a boy stopped his flight by striking him in the back with a stone. The man was promptly arrested and hurried of, but I never learned his fate. These men were Italian fruit venders, and partners in the business. This tragedy made a very deep impression on my mind, as it was the first time I had ever seen human life taken, but it was by no means the last bloody affray I witnessed in those early days.

On October the 11th we reached Montgomery's Point, one of the oldest and most widely known landing's on the Mississippi River. In the early settlement of Louisiana Territory this point was the place of residence of Francois D'Armand, a wealthy fur trader and a man of considerable im- portance in that region of country. Gen. William Montgomery resided at the Point at this time. A few of the old log cabins erected by Francois D'Armand in 1766 were still standing about three hundred yards back from the river. Two large log ware-houses, built upon piling, stood near the water's edge and were used by the firm of Montgomery, Miller & Co., for storing- freight destined for points along the Arkansas and White rivers. The extensive business of this firm was under the management of Mr. Moses Greenwood, who afterwards became a prominent and wealthy commission merchant of New Qrleans, and who was well known and highly respected through out the the South for his many excellent traits of character.

We left Gray's the next morning at about seven o'clock and arrived opposite the town of Little Rock at twelve o'clock, noon, October 16, 1832.
The Governor's party was met here and entertained by Judge David Rover where Argenta, or North Little Rock, now stands. Judge Rover had
the ferry privilege at this point. We remained as his guests until four o'clock p. m., when we made preparation to cross the river.

 A short time after the establishment of the settlement near Crystal Hill, Jacob Pyeatt and a portion of the settlers moved up the river about twenty-three miles, and located another settlement near the mouth of a small stream called the Cadron.This place was for several years the temporary county seat of Pulaski County.

After the two settlements had been pretty thoroughly established, Major Pyeatt conceived the idea of cutting out a trace from the settlements to the Arkansas Post, for the guidance and benefit of those who might come in the future. With a number of the settlers, he set about the undertaking. At a point about fifty miles from the place of beginning and at a stream, afterwards known as the Wattensaw, he struck an Indian trail that led directly to the Post of Arkansas, his objective point. This, I think, may well be considered the beginning of road making in Arkansas.

Little Rock in 1832. But little of the capital could be seen from the north side of the river when I first saw the town in 1832, on account of the high and irregular bluffs on the south bank, which time and the march of improvement have greatly lowered and depressed. In the first geography I ever studied, when a boy, the author located the capital of Arkansas on the north side of the river, and called it Arkapolis. This glaring error was continued subsequently in Morse's Geography. I am informed that this misnomer grew abroad as the result of a meeting of a few citizens of Little Rock, held February 10, 1821, at which a resolution was adopted, changing the name of the town to Arkapolis. The resolution had few friends outside of the meeting, and the proposition fell stillborn at home, although the publication of its adoption abroad found favor with the geographers.

On July 11th we broke camp and reached Yellville, Marion county, and on the 13th reached Carrolton, a small town in Arkansas, and went into camp. The author well remembers the spring. It ran out of the steep, rocky gulch and the branch ran a little south of west and a beautiful grove of timber surrounded the spring. The prisoners were marched down within a few feet of the spring and there placed under guard. As usual, the abuse that had been continually heaped upon the prisoners during the march was renewed and in a short time a man who was said to be from one of the counties north of Rolla, Mo., commenced making a speech and inciting and encouraging the soldiers to mob the prisoners at once; that he had disguised himself and entered the camps of the lop-eared Dutch at Rolla, and that to his own personal knowledge they had men's wives and daughters inside of their camps, committing all manner of offenses possible, and that they were heathens; didn't resemble American people at all and that he would not guard nor feed any man who was a friend to them ; that they ought to be killed outright.

Four Towns Gone Due to Rising Waters and Floods

Holendel , Ark. , up the White River , has been swept off the face of the earth and remnants of houses are lodged among the limbs of trees along the banks of that mighty torrent . There is not an inhabitant there to-day . Not a soul is living at Chicot City. The backwater has come forty miles from the Arkansas river and is up to the second stories of the buildings.Red Fork , a place of 400 people , is no more and the same can be said of Pendleton . Relief boats have come in from that section bringing the surviving families.

Of this town Mr. Lewis says: "Guachoya was in the vicinity of Arkansas City, in Desha County, and possibly at or near the large mound one mile to the
northward." In pages 227-233 of the work just mentioned is recorded the arrival, illness, and death of DeSoto at the Indian town, Guachoya.
