This is taken from the following: "The Guiding Light of God's Truth Made Plain" by Evangelist J. M. Morgan (James Manuel Morgan - son of Emma Clementine Scoggins Morgan Sharpton-sister to Immanuel Lay Scoggins, sometimes called Manuel or Man Scoggins) Page 14, Chapter 27 MANUEL LAY SCOGGINS Mrs. Cinthy D. Scoggins, Mother Stincy Scoggins, his wife Miss Lindy Scoggins, sister Mrs. Emma C. Morgan, sister From Mt. Carmel School, near Dorens Cove near Bridgeport, Alabama Came to Arkansas in the fall of 1875. M.L. Scoggins was a Union soldier. In 1881 John A. Cargile helped him get his bounty of $1400 and a small pension. M.L. Scoggins paid the railrood fare for his mother and her family from Alabama to Arkansas in November 1881. I do not have a copy of the original publication, but will search for it. Grandma Roberson always said her parents came to Arkansas in a covered wagon. She said the road was swampy with narrow lanes. She told me they saw a snake so long it reached all across the roadway. The family came to Lewisburg, Arkansas and lived there until her father could build a house in northern Conway County. (I found property in Van Buren County that he had, so they may have lived there first). While they were at Lewisburg, the oldest daughter, Ellen, died of some type of disease. She was buried in the cemetery in Lewisburg. I looked for a gravesite, but there was probably no marker other than a stone to mark her grave. During the 1840's through the turn of the century, Lewisburg was a thriving town. When the railroad was built a couple of miles north of Lewisburg, the county seat was moved to the growing town of Morrilton. Lewisburg still has a few houses, but when the new bridge across the Arkansas River was built in the 1970's, it is harder to find the old part of town. Sharon Roberson Hardin, August 2012
