ERATH COUNTY HISTORICAL MARKERS
THE COMMUNITY OF HUCKABAY
In 1875 a small group of pioneers from Arkansas and Tennessee acquired land
here on the headwaters of the Bosque, starting the "Flat Woods" settlement.
Confederate veteran John Copeland (1841-86) taught the first local school
sessions (1876,1877) in his home, and gave land (1879) for a cemetery and
(1883) for school. A Church of Christ congregation was formed in 1876. G. W.
Glenn opened the first store in 1878. Baptist and Methodist churches were
founded in 1881. John Huckabay, a farmer-storekeeper who brought the settlers'
mail from Stephenville, led in securing a post office (1888), which was named
for him. He was postmaster in 1888-91 and 1893-95. By 1890, town had general
stores, groceries, drugstores, 2 blacksmiths, barber shops, an undertaker; and
later (briefly) a bank. John Huckabay and W. C. Rigsby opened a cotton gin,
1891. C. H. Hale, an outstanding teacher, founded (1902) the Huckabay Academy,
a high school that later offered college courses. It is said the Academy won
every debate, oratory event, and athletic contest it ever entered. It closed in
1914. The village dwindled in changing economic and travel conditions. The
school, churches, cemetery, and tabernacle became focus for the community. The
post office closed in 1965. (1975)

From: Kentucky, A History of the State. Perrin, Battle & Kniffin. 2nd ed., 1885, Webster Co.
CHARLES H. PRIDE, Webster County, was born November 23, 1839, in Logan County, Ky.
He is a son of James S. and Eliza (Crawford) Pride. The father was born in Tennessee, but now
resides in Union County. The mother was born in North Carolina. She departed this life in May
1849. Our subject was reared on his father's farm, where he remained until the age of thirteen,
at which time he commenced to learn the blacksmith's trade, which he has since followed with
good success. He is regarded by good judges and experts as the best horse-shoer in the State.
In 1864 he removed to Clay, where he has since resided, and where he owns a comfortable
residence. He is an earnest advocate of the temperance cause, and is one of the enterprising
mechanics and respected citizens of the town and county. He was married in 1861 to Mary J.
Potts, of Union County, Ky., she died in March 1878, leaving seven children - four sons and
three daughters: Sarah I. Pride, J.C. Pride, H.L. Pride, Thomas M. Pride, C.W. Pride, A.L.
Pride and E.B. Pride. He was next married in October 1878 to Miss Susan A. Rigsby, also a
native of Union County, Ky. Two sons have blessed their union: Miles Ira Pride and Cleo Ray
Pride. Mr. and Mrs. Pride are members of the United Baptist Church.

Elder Lee Rigsby was born in 1862 in Union Co.
KY. He married 1883 to Kitty Ellen Banks who was born in 1864 & lived
in same general area. (He was suppose to be 21 & her 19 at time of
marriage). We don't know much more about them. They did move to
Texas, & then to Ark. where they are both buried. His brother was Will
Rigsby who lived in Gordon TX. His sister lived in Hatfield Ark.--Laura
was her name. That is all we know of his family. We understand they
lived on a farm in Union Co. raising tobacco, corn, & sorghum cane.
They left KY about 1905 for Gordon TX.

Northwestern AR history
Rev. F. M. Seamsterwas born in Schuyler County, Mo., in 1848, and is a son
of Rev. Williamson Seamster, who was born in Virginia in 1817. He was reared
in his native State, and afterward went to Kentucky, where he was united in
marriage to Miss Susan Rigsbee, a native also of Virginia. They lived in
Kentucky until 1837, and then moved to Missouri, where they spent the
remainder of their days. The mother's death occurred in 1874, and the father
afterward married Mary A. Pendergraff, by whom three children were born to
him. He died in 1884. Sixteen children blessed his first marriage. Rev. F.
M. Seamster was educated in Missouri, and after coming to Arkansas in 1879
became a minister of the Missionary Baptist Church, and has been actively
engaged in that calling up to the present time. He is at the present time
pastor of two churches on Pea Ridge, and has done much to further the cause
of Christianity. He was married in 1873 to Miss Amanda Dunagan, a daughter
of Elder Dunagan, of Rogers, Ark., and by her is the father of five children
Carrie L., John William, Cora E., George M. and Robert M. Mr. Seamster is
now living at Avoca, where he has a good farm and one of the largest
orchards of small fruits in Benton County. He is a Democrat, also a Master

JAMES W. and WALTER W. RIGSBY are residents of Garfield county, W.T. James Rigsby, their father, was
born in North Carolina about the year 1797. He was eighteen years of age when he fought under Jackson at the
battle of New Orleans. He soon after moved to Kentucky and married Sarah Thompson, born in that State in
1801. They had a family of thirteen - Susan, Mary, John W., Festus W., Louise, Martha, James W., born
February 4, 1831, Walter W., born July 31, 1832, David T., Talbert S., Sarah, Nancy, and Frances. of these, five
girls and three boys are still living. The family moved to Missouri in 1822, James being born in Randolph
county, and Walter in Marion county, of that State. In 1839 the family went to Iowa, where the boys grew to
manhood. In 1852 James crossed the plains to California, and the same year John and Walter went with another
train to Oregon. James went into the mines near Hangtown (Placerville), and afterwards journeyed to the mines
in the northern end of the State, reaching Yreka in the fall of 1854. In the spring of 1856 he began merchandising
with his brother Walter, on Beaver creek. Four months later they went to Jackson county, Oregon, and mined
and ranched for several years. In 1858 James was carried away by the Frazer river excitement, and went to the
Carriboo mines, having a severe fight with the Okinagan Indians on the road thither. He remained in British
Columbia until the spring of 1864, when he went to Idaho and spent the summer in the mines at Elk City. After
wintering at Walla Walla, he went to the Blackfoot country with cattle in the spring of 1865. In the fall of that
year he came to Pataha creek and took up a ranch just above the one then and still occupied by his brother
Walter. Two years later he sold this and took up another on Pataha flats, now occupied by Robert
Montgomery. In about wo years he also sold that place and went to Whitman county, where he settled on
some land and lived there about five years. He then sold that ranch and settled on some land and lived there
about five years. he then sold that ranch and settled where he now lives, four miles from Pataha City. He is
dealing quite extensively in cattle and horses, and has 160 acres of fine land, his place being illustrated in this
volume. March 4, 1878, he married Mrs. Nancy White (nee Crumpacker.) They have a son named James W.
Since his birth they have suffered the loss of a little girl named Martha L. Mrs. Rigsby was the widow of
Charles White, by whom she had four children, Lillie, Olive, William and Cassander.
When John and Walter came to Oregon in 1852 they stopped in Yamhill county. The next June they went to
Lane county, and in June, 1854, to Yreka, Cal., where John died. Walter had a hay ranch there until the spring of
1856, when he began merchandising on Beaver creek, with his brother James. They went to Jackson county,
Oregon, the same year, where Walter mined and ranched until 1862. In the spring of that year he went to
Florence, Idaho, and mined three summers. He then made a trip to Oregon, and in the spring of 1865 purchased
his present ranch on the Pataha, just above Pataha City. The ranch was taken up by James Hathaway in 1861,
and came into the possession of John Wilkins in 1863, who sold it to Mr. Rigsby. This has been his home ever
since. We give a view of it on another page. He has 200 acres along the creek, some of it meadow, and is raising
grain, hay and stock. He also has 160 acres two miles north of Pataha City. December 14, 1871, he married Miss
Annie Crumpacker, a native of Missouri. Their daughter, Sarah Ann, was born February 14, 1873, and the
young mother died January 14, 1874. Mr. Rigsby's residence is pleasantly situated amid a grove of trees, just on
the edge of Pataha City.
