The following names of men who were killed in war times were given me by Billy Parker a pioneer settler on Jimmies Creek In Marion County, Ark.
"On the Noe Bluff on the south side of White River two miles below the mouth of Jimmies Creek, Sam Lawther was killed and his poor wife buried him.
Leander Music was killed on the north side of White River just below the Noes Bluff. Dave Music was killed on Newtons Flat below Jimmiee Creek. Bill Cain son of Jim Cain was killed in a hollow that empties into Jimmies Creek. John McClure son of Hugh McClure was killed on the old George Pearson Farm oh the north side of White River above the mouth of Jimmies Creek. It is said that the federals had passed the house but McClure looked out at the door and the soldiers saw him. After they taken him a prisnor they compelled him to run through a land and then shot him to death."
