Pugh patented land in Walker Co. , Alabama just over the county line from Winston Co. Alabama. John B. s land was in the southeast quarter of the southwest quarter and the southwest quarter of the southeast corner of Section 21 in Township 12 of Range 8 West in the District of Lands subject to sale at Huntsville, Alabama, containing seventy-nine Acres and ninety-nine hundredths of an acre. It was approved by James Buchanan, President of the United States and signed by J. A. B. Leonard, secretary on 1 September 1860. John Bart served in the Confederate army. Toward the end of the war, he came home to plant crops for his family. While John B. was there, a group of men rode up and told him he had to go back to his unit. John B. told them he was going to but he first had to make sure his family was okay. They told him no, that he was going back right then. He ran and they shot him as he tried to escape. His youngest son, John Philip, was born in December 1864; therefore John Bart died between March 1864 and April 1865 when the war ended. Family members state that Eliza told her children that the men “danced around John B. as he died”. After quite a bit of research on the Free State of Winston, my theory is that John B. was conscripted into the Confederate Army and was killed by the Home Guard when they found that he was home. There are many stories of men who didn’t want to fight against the Union and didn’t want to fight against the South. Several were killed in their yard or running from their home as John B. was. The men often hid trying to stay away from the Home Guard (both Winston and Marion County had Home Guard members who shot and pillaged without thought of the consequences). After one murder spree in Winston Co. , intimidation of women who had been left alone, and pillaging of homes, 90 men joined the Union Army in one day as a result. There are military records that show a John B. Pugh was mustered into the Confederate Army in Jasper, Walker Co. , Alabama. Men from Winston Co. who were conscripted into the Confederate Army were taken to Walker Co. and told they had to enlist or be shot in five days. The next paragraph came from “A Brief History of Winston County” by Judge John Bennett Weaver, early historian of Winston County. “Because of the presence of the Union Army in North Alabama, the Confederacy started enforcing their Conscript Act. This act stated that anyone of conscript age was to fight for the Confederacy, except those wealthy enough. Hamilton Carpenter headed a group of “Enlistment Officers” for the Confederacy; they started making their way into Winston County from Marion County to conscript people and ended up provoking several families. Newt Austin was killed near Nauvoo for his Union sympathies, and a Mr. Pugh was also killed four miles north of Double Springs. ” More About John Pugh and Eliza Wilson: Marriage: Abt. 1858, Georgia Notes for Benjamin Alexander Cagle: 1910 Census, Wayne County (5th Dist. – H12- Page 167B) Tennessee – Listed as Ben A.
