(October 18, 1861 enlisted notes Moses and Seaborn both at age at 24 - if correct, birth dates for both men would have to be before October 18, 1837.  Age of "24" then is probably date discharged, died or when roll was taken.)

     On October 18, 1861 Moses and Seaborn enlisted with Dawson's 19th Arkansas Infantry, which later became one of the components for Hardy's Infantry.  J. P. (James Polk) Goodson is sited as enlisting originally with Dawson's Regiment. If the dates are correct, James enlisted with Dawson's only days before the Battle at Fort Hindman at Arkansas Post. The Confederates had been disrupting Union shipments on the Mississippi River and Major General John McClernand organized a movement to capture the Post.  Troops began their arrival January 9, 1863 and and by January 11 the Union had surrounded the Post with relentless fire.  The Confederate command surrendered.  It is estimated that the Union lost 1047 of its 30,000 troops and the Confederates lost about 109 of its 4,800.  Most of those who survived were captured as prisoners.  Among those was Seaborn T. Goodson, who died the following month in military prison at Camp Douglas. The battle was considered a victory for the Union,
    Hardy's Arkansas Infantry Regiment was organized a short time later by consolidating what was left of the 19th and the 24th Infantries and Crawford's Infantry Battalion after the capture at Arkansas Post on January 11, 1863.  Hardy's Infantry later participated in the Red River Campaign in the spring of 1864, including the Battle at Jenkins Ferry April 30, 1864.

NOTES FOR TRACKING PAGE FAMILY TO ARKANSAS:

Exert from "A Centennial History of Grant County 1869 - 1969" by Elwin L. Goolsby

FIRST SETTLERS : 1841 - 1869
Francis Posey was one of the first white settlers to come to Grant County. He was the son of Samuel and Ruth Posey of South Carolina. In 1841 Ruth Posey and her children came to this area and cleared land. Samuel Posey had been killed in Louisiana in l840. Francis Posey married Frances J. Ratcliff in 1844. She died in 1845 in Grant County. In 1848 Francis married Sarah L. Worthen. Posey had come to Grant County when he was seventeen. He, as did almost every other settler, chose farming as an occupation until 1869. He then began the first mercantile business in the new community of Sheridan. Posey came to the county forty-eight years before its creation and to him can be given credit for the act or passage of the act creating the county in 1869.

After the arrival of Posey in 1841 other white settlers began to arrive in this area. In Calvert Township with their families were Edward Calvert, Seth Atchley, Squire Henry Carr, John B. Hester, James Hester, Merrie Alley, Hugh Berry, James Rogers, Squire Ben Hubbard, and Jonas Black. In Merry Green Township was the Porter family. In Tennessee Township were the Blands, Guests, and others. The Tulls, both Arch and Abe, were in DeKalb Township. An old German family by the name of Fenter, the Brachiers, and Pages, who were hunters and trappers of note, were in what is now Fenter Township. The Rateliffes, the Williamses, the Logans, the Ledbetters, and the Jenkins were in Davis Township, the Ledbetters being among the earliest. The territory covered by Davis and Calvert Township was the most thickly and rapidly settled.
_________________________________________

It not known where Mary was born, but it is assumed she was born in Tennessee, as both her parents died (and were born) there.  It is likely then, that Mary relocated to Arkansas an adult, probably after she married.  That would put her arrival in AR sometime after 1903 (using age 17 as married age).  

According to Goolsby's article, the Page family or families arrived in what is now Grant Co., AR sometime between 1841 and 1869.  Grant County was formed from Saline County in 1869.  Prior to that it was part of Clark County (until 1829) and Hot Spring and Jefferson County (until 1835).

The township names at that time were the same names of counties in Tennessee, so it can be assumed that many of the settlers came from Tennessee, including Goolby's Pages. Mary's ancestors had been in Tennessee since at least 1822.  It is likely, then that the Pages referenced in the article are of some relation to Mary, and that may been one of the reasons she located there.


James Munroe CALLAHAM

James opened the first saloon in Howard Co., AR (source: Bonnie Callaham Peek).  He started business in Center Point, AR in 1869 (news article, see J. A. Hughes). He lived in North Carolina prior to that.
