  • Notes 
    • FRANCIS MARION BORDEAUX is one of the successful agriculturists of Drew County, Arkansas, owning 260 acres of land, and his farm, which comprises sixty acres in cultivation, is very fertile and carefully tilled, and consequently yields a large nnual income. He farms on the improved plan, using fertilizing preparations to improve his land, and his operations are being attended with the best results.
      He was born on July 22, 1842, in New Hanover County, North Carolina, being the son of DANIEL BORDEAUX, who resided on the place that was settled by his Great-Grandfather, a French Huguenot. He remained in his native State until he was twenty-sx years of age; then came to Arkansas and married one of Drew County's daughters, Miss REBECCA THANKFUL LAMB, after which he purchased eighty acres of fine ridge land, and proceeded to make him a home with the above mentioned results. His union has resulted in the birth of the following children: ERNEST E., LaFAYETTE, MARGUERITE K., LEONORA L. EURENUS JULIA(N), HELEN F., ALICE REBECCA and DANIEL T.
      In the month of June, 1861, Mr. BORDEAUX enlisted in the Confederate Army, remaining until after Lee's surrender under the command of D.H. Hill, commanding Division in Company C; First North Carolina State Troops Infantry, but after the death f General Jackson, who commanded the Corps, he was under General Ewell. He was in the attacking party in the seven days fight at Mechanicsville, remaining all through the battle, and was also in the fight and skirmish in the Shenandoah Valley, at Gettysburg and harper's Ferry, being also in the seven days fight at Richmond. He was taken prisoner of war until the cessation of hostilities when he was paroled in return home, where he has devoted his time and attention to the peaceful pursuit of farming. He has held the office of Justice of the Peace for six years in succession, and is a man who commands the respect of all who know him. He is a member of the Farmers Alliance. -
