James Wesley Hoard and Emily Scott Hoard had a son, Thomas Miller Hoard. Thomas married Martha Ellen McCombs, and they had a son, Ernest Edward Oliver Hoard, who is my grandfather. James and Emily are my gr. gr. grandparents.

The father of George M. Scott is John Harrison Scott. John Harrison Scott married Sarah Jackman, who are my gr. gr. gr. gr. grandparents. Sarah Jackman's parents are Atwell Jackman (born Oct. 1779 in PA - died October 26, 1836 in Andersonville, Franklin County, Indiana). Atwell Jackman married Margaret Simpson ca. 1806 and Margaret Simpson was born ca. 1780 and died ca. 1821 in Posey Twp., Franklin Co., Indiana. There seems to be a tie into President Harrison's line through John Harrison Scott. Margaret Simpson is the first cousin of President U. S. Grant. Will have to delve into all of this more to be certain.
A Family Civil War Story
We had family members, both fighting for the South and the North. Also, some of the members of the family would get captured at various times, and they were faced (either side) with, "Either fight for us, or go to prison." This situation could have happened more than once to an individual. Of course, they chose to fight. We had one family member that died in prison after the war because he fought for the South. He died at Leavenworth.
Now, for another family story, one of my great or great great grandmothers lived with her family in the South and she was a teenager at the time. She had a horse, and you know 15 or 16 year old teen girls, they are VERY attached to their horses. She was no exception. Well, the Union soldiers came onto their property, and demanded supplies and horses. She immediately took her beloved horse and locked him into the smoke house. She placed herself at the door and refused to let the soldiers at her horse. After much arguing, and trying to convince her to give up the horse, the soldiers finally threatened to burn the house down if she didn't give the horse to them. She refused, so the soldiers went back to the house and set a fire in the middle of the floor of house. She finally gave the soldiers her horse, and they put the fire out, and left with the supplies and horse they wanted.
This story has to be either about Luticia Nichols, 1850-1926, Born in Clinton, Henry, Missouri, Died 25 January 1926 in Delaware, Oklahoma. She is on my grandfather's side. My grandfather probably knew her.
The second, and less-likely choice for this story is on my grandfather's side of the family, Emily Lutitia Scott. Emily Scott is pictured above with her husband, James Wesley Hoard. I do not have her dates at this time.
Another choice is Jane Goforth, but she would have been older, born in 1848, she would have been about 17 at the time, but still possible. She died 26 December 1886. She is from my grandmother's side. My grandmother would not have known her.
Another choice is Burnettia C. Williams, B. 03 March 1850, Berryville, Carroll, Arkansas, and D. 03 November, 1950. She lived to be a hundred, and she would have been known by my grandmother, who I believe handed this story down. This is my favorite choice so far.
Luticia L. Nichols married John Anderson McCombs. She had nine children:
1. Martha Ellen McCombs, b. 1 Jul 1870, Bentonville, Benton County, AR , d. 13 Aug 1946, Tulsa, Tulsa County, OK (Age 76 years)
