|Elizabeth Rogers, No. 7,487. Amt. $1,368 Rejected||Lived 4 miles north of Irwinton, wife of Allen Rogers deceased in 1876. Names mentioned: R. W. Watkins, Walter E. Honeycutt, Elizabeth Smith, James Stevens of Irwinton, Isaac Stephens, James Kinney, B. B. Shepherd, James M. Carswell, Payton Clay, James Jackson, E. J. Holland. Had son in CSA, had a son who was a cripple. "Before the war a daughter of the claimant and Richard Honeycutt were married. They had two children Richard Honeycutt and two or three others were accused of stealing some negroes. Huneycutt harbored them, gave them water and fed them. He was convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary for four years. He was serving out his term commenced and was offered release if he would enlist in the Confederate Army. This he steadily refused to do and received very severe treatment as an abolitionist after that. When Gen. Sherman passed through, the prison doors of Honeycutt were opened, and he came home. His mother-in-law refused to let him in the house, and shut his wife and children upstairs. Honeycutt found he could not see his children, and that it would be unsafe for him to be in the neighborhood. He therefore continued with the army until the war closed. After the war he returned, and renewed his efforts to see his wife and children. He stopped at the home of a Mr. Coalson, and from there wrote the claimant, begging to be allowed to see his wife and children, and especially the children. I hear that she returned a vulgar answer to that appeal calling him an 'abolitionist son of a B....h ' and telling him to go the Yankees who let him out of prison. So I had the nephew of Richard Honeycutt in my employ while investigating cases in Wilkinson co., it may be well that I now state, none of this history reached me through him. There is a difference of opinion of whom I talked about this, as to whether claimants treatment of Honeycutt was due to him having been in the penitentiary or whether it was because he was let out by the Federal army. after having refused to purchase his freedom by joining the COnfederate army, and having cast his lot with then. Mr. J. L. Coalson said his father read her answers to Mr. Honeycutt's last appeal. Having been with the federal army and having the name of an abolitionist, it was not safe for him to attempt to remain in this county and he went to Alabama and died and never saw either his son or daughter from the time he departed for prison before the war.
