121 Andrew Jackson (Dick) Kitchen
Missouri was the scene of more Civil War battles than any other state except Virginia and Tennessee. The Union army took [food] from the poor to feed their army. They took what they wanted, or killed the people if they resisted giving up their food and supplies. Some of the people fought the north as Bushwhackers instead of putting on a southern uniform. They destroyed government supply wagons at Beaver Creek, south of Rolla, and around Edgar Springs.
After the war, President Lincoln said to pardon everyone and start again. However, Governor Crittendon of Missouri refused to pardon the Bushwhackers, who had done the Union Army the most damage. In this area, he put out wanted posters on Dick Kitchen, Anthony Wright, Bill Wilson, and Jim Jamison. Bill Wilson fled to Texas, Anthony Wright went to Louisiana, Jim Jamison was later pardoned and became a Texas Ranger.
Dick Kitchen was hiding after the War in a cave east of where Highway H crosses the Little Piney (east of Edgar Springs) at Black Oak. Dick's mother's home was at the foot of the hill as you start up to Mitchell Cemetery. Oral family history tells that Sergeant Jim Samples, head of the Home Guard, came with his troops to Dick's mother's home, looking for him. Bett, who is Dick's half-sister, was 16 years old at the time. At night, she would slip out and take him food. Samples and the men caught her and tried to force her to tell where Dick was hiding. She wouldn't tell, so they hung her from a limb of a walnut tree, which was next to the house. They had shoved her mother, Elizabeth, into the house and chained the door so she couldn't get out. Then they piled straw up to the front door and set it on fire. They let Bett down, and then hung her again. The second time she was turning blue just as Dick got there, and he shot the rope from the limb. The men took off when Dick ran up to try to rescue Elizabeth from the fire. Bett had a rope burn on her neck for many years. Dick was so anguished that he could have killed all of Sample's men, but in reality, he really didn't want to kill anyone.
Another time Samples and the Home Guard came to Coon's (Dick's brother) home and took him up on the ridge. They told him if he didn't tell them where Dick was, they were going to kill him. He thought the only thing that saved him was John Samples (Jim's father) came out in the road with them.
Once, after the war, Coon and Eliza came home and found that Carter, Reed, Samples, and more of them, had taken the boards off their smokehouse and were carrying off all his meat and loading up the corn out of the barn. There was nothing he could do - it wasn't worth getting killed for. He could have only stopped one before they killed him or his family.
John Samples and some more killed a 12 year old boy at Pilot Knob. The boy was tending the cattle on a horse and John Samples said it took two shots to make him fall out of the saddle.
The log barn across the road from Don and Connie Davidson's present home used to be located in the field across the road from Bud and Juanita Arthur's present home. In later years, it was moved up the road and made into a barn. Dick Kitchen had gone to this house to visit his girlfriend and sit up with "old lady Mace", probably Martha Ellen's mother. She was very sick. Jim Samples found out where Dick was and brought the Home Guard about dark. They told him to come out. They fired into the house and two bullets went into "old lady Mace's" pillow. Dick told them to blow out the light and get on the floor. He saw the glint of the gun barrel in the moonlight and fired and went out with both guns firing. He killed Samples and wounded some of the men. He was a crackshot. Dick got his horse and got away. The other soldiers got scared and left.
Then the men went up the road to (where Henry and Mary Blake live today) to Uncle Antnie Kitchen's home (Dick's brother) and got him up about 2:00 in the morning to haul the Samples body home. Uncle Antnie brought his team of oxen and wagon. Antnie said he could hear the man's teeth a popping as he went up that bumpy road, so he tied a cloth around his head. Samples lived where Dick and Pat Rogers live today. Antnie got there about daylight. Mr. Samples came out and thanked him for bringing his boy's body home. Someone asked Antnie if he didn't hate to haul him. Uncle Antnie said, "only thing I hated was I didn't have a full load." The Home Guard broke up after Samples was killed.
Dick was freighting and was at a Blacksmith shop in Evening Shade, Arkansas. He had to shoe his horse. He took off his guns and hung them up on the bellows. He didn't have enough horseshoe nails and while he was getting them. someone shot him in the back with his own gun. He is buried in Evening Shade, Arkansas.
These men were not outlaws, they tried to stay neutral but were forced into either being Confederate soldiers or Bushwhackers. They believed they could help the most as they did and tried to protect their families and themselves. They were the result of a war they didn't want. The old timers tell that except in very rare circumstances, if you were a Democrat, you were for the South and if you were a Republican, you were for the North. Southern Sympathizers in Missouri lost their right to vote for five years following the war. They also had to register as Southern Sympathizers during the War.
These Kitchen stories were told by Faye Davidson, great-niece of Dick Kitchen and also great-niece of his wife, Martha Ellen Mace. Also by Richard (Dick) Kitchen of Lenox, Missouri, age 79 years, great-nephew of Dick Kitchen. Also by many other family members and friends. Mildred Hall and Helen Dooley are also great-nieces of Dick Kitchen.
"I have submitted these stories because I want our children and grandchildren to realize the Civil War happened and that it happened right here in Edgar Springs. My five year old grandson, Chad, asked me "Which was the good side, Grandma?" This war didn't have a good side, just fighting for the cause you believed in or trying to survive". -- Connie Davidson, 1986.

KITCHENS Andrew Jackson "Dick" (I680)
 
122 Andrew Jackson (Dick) Kitchen was the son of George Kitchen and Elizabeth Adams. Dick (Bushwhacker book) married Martha Ellen Mace Edgar, March 31,1867, the daughter of Henry Mace and Elizabeth Black. Dick and Martha had a little girl who died after eating too many dried apples. She is buried at the Renaud Cemetery.

Oral family history says Dick and others fought the North as bushwhackers instead of putting on Southern uniforms. They destroyed government supply wagons at Beaver Creek, south of Rolla and around Edgar Springs and also gave food back to those people from whom the army had taken it.

At the conclusion of the war all Southern sympathizers were to be pardoned, but the one in charge of Missouri said, "No". This area put out posters for Dick Kitchens, Anthony Wright, Bill Wilson and Jim Jamison.BILL went to Texas, Anthony to Louisiana, Jim was later pardoned and became a Texas Ranger.

After the war Dick was hiding in a cave east of Edgar Springs (where Highway H crosses Little Piney). Dick's mother's home was at the foot of the hill that leads to the Mitchell Cemetery.

They shoved her mother into the house, chained the door, piled straw up to the front door and set it on fire. When they let Bett down, she said, "Now I didn't tell you, and I never will!" Then they hung her again. The second time, she was turning blue. By then Dick had gotten there with his guns shooting. The soldiers ran off. Bett had rope burns on her neck for many years. Dick said he could have killed them all, but he didn't want to kill anyone.

Another time Samples and his men came to Coon's (Dick's brother) home and took him up on a ridge to kill him if he didn't tell where Dick was. Coon thought the only thing that saved him was that John Samples, Jim's father, came. He was a Baptist preacher. He preached in a coat that had a bullet hole in the back. He walked stooped over. They asked him how he got that way. He said, "From dodging Bill Wilson's bullets." He had a crease on the back of his head from one.

Martha Ellen's mother was very sick. (She lived where Bud Arthur's farmis now located.) Dick went there to help sit up with her. Samples found out where he was and brought the Home Guard after dark. They fired two bullets into Mrs. Mace's pillow. Dick told his relatives to blow out the light and get on the floor. Dick saw the glint of a gun barrel and went out with both guns firing. He killed Samples and wounded some other. Dick escaped on his horse.

The soldiers went up to Uncle Antnie's (Dick's brother) at 2:00 in the morning to make him haul Samples's body home. He hauled the body with ateam of oxen and wagon. John Samples thanked him for bringing his boy home. Somebody asked Antnie if he didn't hate to haul him. He said, "Only thing I hate -- I didn't have a full load."

Martha's farm was where Roy Davidson's farm is located today. Martha later married Tom Kepler. She is buried in Renaud Cemetery.

Dicks's uncle, "Piney Bill" William Adams was kept awhile as a prisoner during the Civil War because authorities accused him of harboring bushwhackers in his home.

Family tradition says "he was wanted by the law all of his life." 1869 St. Louis deed record shows where Anthony and John Jackson, Administer for Lewis F Wright estate, met and finalized the land transaction. John Jackson came back and recorded the same at Phelps County Court House.

Side note: coincidence that at this same time, Col. Babcoke's house in Miller County was set fire and destroyed. Babcoke's soon depart and no record yet found. [Babcoke was the one who murdered Anthony's father and four brothers.]

129 Anthony paid taxes for the first time in Washington County, Kentucky in 1799. Since it was a Kentucky law that all males OVER the age of 21 must pay tax, this proves that Anthony's birth year would be 1778, not 1780 as previously estimated. KITCHEN William "Anthony" (I4168)
