YOUNG SCHOOLHOUSE CEMETERY

YOUNG SCHOOLHOUSE CEMETERY, UPTON AREA

UPTON, TEXAS. Upton, seven miles south of Bastrop in central Bastrop County, traces its origins to settler J. P. Young's arrival in the area in 1847. Young was soon joined by John and Tom Hancock and John Bright. The first community school was a one-room log building, which was replaced in 1873 by a frame building erected on land donated by Young. In 1892 the school was moved to a new structure on the current site. Two years later, with the coming of the railroad, a post office was established and the name Como was selected. When it was found that the name was already in use elsewhere, the post office and community became Upton.
By 1914 Upton was a station on the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad and had a population of seventy, a cotton gin, and a general store. The next year a church was built. But the population soon dropped to twenty-five. Although the post office was closed in 1929, in the 1930s Upton had a community center and three schools, two for black children and one for white. Population estimates remained at twenty-five through most of the community's twentieth-century history, with a brief jump to fifty in the late 1960s.

Plaque by the Texas Historical Commission erected next to the school house:
Young School House and Cemetery In 1872, area pioneer John P. Young (1829-1906) donated two acres of his land for a community school and cemetery. The earliest marked grave, that of W. T. Sanders, is dated 1874. Since then, the cemetery has been used primarily by area settlers and their descendants.

Shortly after the land was donated, community leaders opened a five-month term school, which was named in honor of John Young. With the help of carpenter Samuel D. Sanford (died 12/21/1903 blood poisoning), this school house was constructed in 1872 of hand-hewn pine logs. Young school closed in 1907 when the rail line was laid through the Upton community (3 MI.N), and a larger school was established there.

Although no longer in use as a school house the building has been maintained as a community center and has been the site of worship services for several area congregations. Young School House Baptist Church, whose roots date to 1910, continues to worship at this site. The building has been moved twice to make room for more cemetery plots.

Much of the history of this part of Bastrop County revolves around Young School House and Cemetery, each of which has been in use for more than 100 years.

HISTORIC YOUNG SCHOOLHOUSE CEMETERY
A state historic marker didn’t show up in time but that failed to dim the high spirits of Upton area residents and guests Sunday at the dedication of the restored historic Young Schoolhouse.
On a perfect Autumn Sunday afternoon, a crowd filled the white frame school house and church to hear speakers praise the work of local residents who started the restoration in late 1976.
Descendants of pioneer settler J. P. Young were among the crowd of some 200 persons who thanked Chester and Liz Lee, Rosa Lee, Virgil Patterson, Irene Schubert and others.
The school was built in 1872, moved twice and after the railroad came to Upton and a new school was built there, the old school closed in 1907. It became a haven for many different churches. Young School House Baptist Church now holds regular worship services and sponsored the work to get a state historic marker, expected to be delivered soon.
The research and restoration effort is an example of what local communities can do to preserve the pioneer heritage of Texas, said June Pape, representing the Bastrop County Historical Commission, and Frances Rickard, Assistant Director of Research, Texas Historical Commission.
Built of rough hewn pine lumber, by 1976 the building was in poor physical shape. In her history of the school, Lila Wesie Potter Scallorn Rister described the site: “It still sits there by the side of the road, a ragged beggar sunning.”
Today the building gleams inside.
Eugenia Schock did not know any of the local residents in October last year when she learned a Christian congregation was worshipping in the one room school house and she thought the historic structure should be recognized in some way. She offered to do the paperwork to get it marked by the Texas Historical Commission.
Persons who helped in the research such as Jewel Rosanky of Smithville are now friends of Mrs Schoch.
Taking part in the ceremony was the Rev. Dan Porter, pastor of the Young Schoolhouse Baptist Church, who acted as master of ceremonies. He gave the closing benediction in front of the well tended Young School House Cemetery.

Rebecca's parents from NC, Charlie's from GA - father might have come from SC. Charlie originally from Talbot area, but they lived in Cutberth area when Rebecca died sometime just after 1880 census. She supposedly buried in Macon, GA but I've found no record. Charlie left older daughters in GA with relatives and took young sons by wagon to TX. I am looking for her parents and other ancestors.

Cain, Lake Pugh` 2/13/1869 10/8/1898 unmarked Son of James Michael Cain & Mary Richardson
Bastrop, Bastrop CO, TX newspaper 1898:
Suicided at Bastrop.
Mr. Lake Cain, of this city, died in Bastrop last Saturday from the effects of an overdose of morpine supposed to have been taken with suicidal intent. Mr. Cain was an eppileptic sufferer and may have taken the drug to alleviate the pain of an expected attack. Deceased leaves a brother, J. M. C. Cain, in this city. His remains were interred at Upton. (The grave is unmarked but may be the one next to James Michael Cain, SR with shells on top. This could also be James' second wife.)

10/1898, The Bastrop Advertiser

On Friday night of last week a Mr. Lake Cain (son of James Michael Cain), a resident of the
southern part of the county, registered at the Midland Hotel and was assigned a room. It is
said he had 75 cents, in money, ten cents of which he spent for morphine, 15 cents he paid
to Mr. Wilkes for his night lodging. About 8 o'clock he went to his room and to bed. He
had stopped the night before at the John Watts boarding house, but being unable to get a
room for himself, changed to the Midland Hotel. It is said he was subject to epileptic fits, and was in the habit of taking morphine when he felt the spells coming on him. It is
supposed he took the dose between 8 and 9 o'clock, Friday night. When discovered Saturday
morning, he was in a comatose condition. Dr. Combs was called to see him, but the deadly
drug had got in its work, and he died between 12 and 1 o'clock. Justice Jenkins held an
inquest, deciding that he had died from morphine administered by his own hands, but whether
suicidal intent or not, is not known. His brother, J. M. C. Cain, came up from Smithville
and took charge of the remains which were carried to Upton and interred.

Daniel wouldn't take anything off anyone. He was a good man, but not one to mess with. He would kill anybody who messed with him. In Baker County, Georgia, a carpetbagger had taken Daniel's only riding horse. When Daniel went to get the horse, the carpetbagger told him he liked the horse and planned to keep it. Daniel killed the carpetbagger and rode to Natchez, Mississippi and waited for a wagon train. Dan Kelley had black hair, black eyes, and not as tall as his brother, William Leonard.

Families had been planning to leave Georgia for Texas for months. About 20 wagons left Georgia the morning after Daniel killed the carpetbagger, sometime in 1872. They met Dan at Natchez and crossed by ferry. The families on the wagon train were related. Other families who were kin had traveled on other wagon trains. Families on the various wagon trains were Kelley, Screws, Hudler, Tiner, Naps, Knight, Cain, Richardson, Jordan, Adams, and Hayslip. Some wagons stopped off in East Texas around Athens and Longview. Others came to Pearidge or Upton, as it was called then. Some settled in Van Zandt and Kaufman Counties

Notes for WILLIAM LEONARD KELLEY from the Baker Co GA Historical Society Book submitted by ? Screws:

Baker County sent many of its men to what was to be named the Eighth Georgia Calvary at the end of the war. The Eighth Calvary was part of Fitzhugh Lee's Corps and was with General Lee at Appomattox. Three of these men were Captain James Cain and his half brothers, Private Daniel Coffield Kelley and Private William Leonard Kelley.

William Leonard Kelley was said to have fought and starved for two years.

One member of the family was a great horseman. He would win a horse race, trade horses and win again. Due to Calvary training, he was said to have looked great on a horse. (This had to be Lewis Tiner)

In 1840, the family was in Lee County, Georgia.

All three, their mother, Nancy Knight Kelley, and their families, moved to Texas after the War of Yankee Aggression and settled in Bastrop County.

William Leonard Kelley had to leave Georgia in a hurry. The Yankees wanted to hang him and he went to Texas. He hopped a boxcar on a train. Someone on the boxcar hit him on the head causing him to bite his tongue so badly, he had a speech impediment afterward. He went back to Georgia and helped bring his family to Texas.

He had cancer and his son, Charles Flozzell, took him from his home with only his clothes and the rocking chair he was sitting in. Charles had to carry him out in this chair to the car. He placed him in the car and left. William Leonard had a dog which tried to follow the car, but Charles would not take the dog with him.

William Leonard had brought a suitcase of confederate money with him from Georgia and children treated it as play money.

William Leonard Kelley was about five feet ten inches in height, 180 - 85 lbs., with reddish black hair, brown eyes almost black, and freckles.

Oma Mae Screws Eastman said her mother, Tina Kelley, told her she had sat in the lap of Jesse James when she was a little girl and Jesse James had made her a doll. Also, she added, Frank James, Jesse James, and the Younger brothers would stay at their home, the William Leonard Kelley place, in Bastrop County, Texas. It was told the James' brothers were their cousins, and while at Bastrop, they wanted to exchange horses. The Kelley's wouldn't exchange horses because the exchange might make the family accomplices in the James' crimes. The next morning, they had exchanged horses anyway, and put a coiled rope on the barn floor, filled with money. The horses left were of better quality than those taken. Some of the family said not to tell of the kinship with these outlaws. The James and Youngers were perfect gentlemen while staying at the family home.
Tenney was born in 1868, they came to TX in 1872. If she was on Jesse's lap that was before age 10 so from 1872 to 1878 Jesse came to Bastrop.

TOBE COOK HANGS
THE MURDERER OF MISS IDA BELLE MOORE SUFFERS THE PENALTY OF HIS CRIME.
Hangs Until He is Dead! Dead! Dead!
A Full History of the Crime, the Trial and the Hanging.
DIES PROTESTING INNOCENCE.
HISTORY OF THE CRIME
At about 2 o'clock, on Wednesday, June 17, 1891, Miss Ida Belle Moore, a step-daughter of Mr
A. J. Bellamy, about 16 years old; living near Upton about eight miles below Bastrop, visited a neighbor about one-half of a mile distant from her home. At about 5 o'clock in the afternoon she left that neighbor's house for that home she never reached alive. Almost in sight of home she was seized by a fiend incarnate, choked and dragged under a one-stran barbed wire fence and carried on through the woods to a secluded spot, where she was murdered, choked to death and then outraged and her lifeless body left on the ground, where it was discovered later by anxious friends cold in death.
It is needless to say the country was aroused. A runner, was sent to town and immediately
Sheriff Davis, with a posse, and accompanied by County Attorney J. B. Price and Hon. J. P.
Fowler, went down to ferret out the murder. Suspicion soon rested upon Tobe Cook, a black
negro, who was placed under arrest, and who would have been instantly hung by an outraged
populace, had not there been a shadow of doubt of his guilt and the counsel of cooler heads
prevailed. After quiet was restored, and all danger of summary justice being meted out to the fiend, Governor Hogg telegraphed Sheriff Davis to "protect the prisoner at all hazards,"
adding, "there is a standing reward of $1000 for the arrest of each and every man who assists or engages in mob law," and yet, not a dollar was offered for the capture of the fiend who had perpetrated the double crime.

Interview with Lewis Tiner, published in the Austin Daily Tribune February 8, 1941

This Confederate Veteran was born in Newton, Baker Co, Georgia, September 11, 1843, and remained in that state until the outbreak of the Civil War. He volunteered and left his home with the Second Georgia Cavalry, and was in many of the great battles of the war including New Hope and others, and was with General Lee's Army when it surrendered at Appamatox.

Following the surrender, Mr. Tiner was mustered out at Greensboro, North Carolina, and returned to his home in Georgia. He married Miss Martha B. Kelly, February 6, 1866 and they remained in Georgia until 1872, when he and his wife and two children embarked in an ox wagon, traveling as far as Montgomery, Alabama, where they sold their oxen and wagon and boarded the train for Texas, landing in McDade, Bastrop County. Later they moved to Hill's Prairie, and from there they moved to the place he now calls his home, which is about fifteen miles west of Smithville.

Mrs. Tiner died December 18, 1926.
He died soon after the interview.

1933 Smithville newspaper, Rosanky news items: Mr. W. R. Tiner of Shawnee, OK, once a citizen of this place is visiting his daughter, Mrs. Charlie Kelley, and other relatives and friends of this place. Mr. Tiner was one of the pioneer citizens of this community.

Story goes that Wright Tiner, Andrew Nathan Kelley, and Landy Schubert were running from the law for bootlegging and went to OK. Nathan and Landy came back to Upton but Wright stayed. Andrew spent time in the penitentiary. Landy stated that he would dress up like a woman, with fake hair, a hat and in a dress, and take the train back home to visit his mother. When the sheriff died (either Castleberry or Townsend) Landy came home for good. Landy went up to the jail and told the new sheriff to come outside and get him. The sheriff never came out so Lancy went home as was never messed with.

Referring to your pension application, which was approved by me, I write to say that I am informed by the State Comptroller that he cannot approve your application in it’s present condition because it does not sufficiently appear there from that your present physical disability is the result of actual service in the confederate Army. I write this letter to notify you that you can repair the defect if possible before the 1st day of April.
Yours respty

Dear Mr. Betts,
I received your letter that offered your services in securing the benefits that are entitled to the nearest kin after the death of a World War Veteran.
In being advised about the death of Mr. Berry Sawyers Webb, my husband, a mistake was probably made because Mr. Webb was a Confederate in the war between the North and South.
Can you offer any services to the nearest kin after the death of a confederate or advise me in any way to whom I might secure services?
I thank you for your service
Yours Truly

Dear Mrs. Webb:
Your letter of May 18 was addressed to the State Service Officer, Austin, Texas, has been referred to this Department for reply.
Inasmuch as you have already received the Mortuary Warrant which issued on account of the death of Mr. B S Webb and your application for pension on his service record has been approved, on which approval you will receive your first warrant about May 30, 1936, there is no further benefit which can issue to the relatives of Mr. Webb other than you may apply for a headstone for his grave if you desire. These stones are furnished by the United States Governmant. At any time you desire blank forms for making application for such headstone you should write the Quartermaster General, Washington, DC.
In making out an application for a headstone you will probably need the following information which is given in the pension application of Mr. Webb:
The records of this office show that B S Webb drew a Confederate Pension from the State of Texas under file number 10494 Travis County until his death. The records also show B S Webb was a private in Co, D (Transferred from Captain I J Warren’s Co) 12th Battalion Mississippi CAV, Confederate States Army.
