Descendants of Francis de Bourdon


Lemuel Licurgus Ansley

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 20 May 2004 by Karen Ansley. "As a single man, Lemuel worked for various members of his family on their farms, and for a time in 1865, served as a guard for Camp Ford, a Confederate prison camp near Tyler. After their marriage, Lemuel and Mollie lived in Henderson County near Brownsboro through most of their married lives. We find Lemuel Ansley listed as voting place, find him on grand jury lists, and on a list of men involved in a temperance movement in the early 1900s. In 1905, he and Mollie, along with daughter Ione and husband George M. Fowler, and daughter Ina, followed James Marvin and wife Sally to Texas County, Oklahoma. Lemuel's brother James William had gone to that area and was selling real estate when he died there. James Marvin came to work for him, then filed his own claim and came back for Sally. They shipped their household goods, teams and wagons, plus lumber to build a new house (Lemuel and Molly) on the railroad, the men riding in the box car and the women and child (George and Ione's first son) on the passenger car. Lemuel and Mollie filed a claim and built a home, then later sold it and bought James M. and Sally's claim when James got a job with the railroad in the 1920s. The Oklahoma panhandle was not a place to farm without irrigation, and Lemuel and Molly had a tough time in their later life. We have the correspondence between Lemuel and authorities as he sought a Confederate pension for his service during the Civil War, which he finally obtained not long before his death. Lemuel and Molly are both buried in Elmhurst Cemetery in Guymon, Oklahoma.

Information from a cataloger at Clemson University Library. "I have a source in which William, writing from Teague, Texas in Oct. 7, 1930, mentions his birth at Oconee Station, South Carolina on April 16, 1846 (with his twin brother, James Hogan Doyle). In Feb. 1864 both brothers traveled to Charleston to enlist in the Seventh South Carolina Cavalry."

He had been identified with the co-operative marketing of cotton from the outset of the movement. He was one of the first directors of the Arkansas Cotton Grower's Co-oprative Association. When the organization was merged into the mid-south association, he was continued as a director and had been re-elected every year since. He also served as vice-president of the mid-south body.
