  • Notes 
    • The following notes were copied from 'The Vines & Russell Family' by Martha N Camp & Wilma Thedford.

      " THIS IS WHERE THE ARKANSAS VINES COME INTO THIS FAMILY "
      " John Henry Vines was born in the state of Alabama and lived in Carollton, Ga. before moving to Arkansas for unknown reason as a young man. John Vines joined the Confederate Army in the War between the States in Saline Co. Ark. in May 1861 in the Falcon Guards, which later became, Company E, 11th Ark. Infantry. He was captured on April 8, 1862and served a term of nearly six months at Camp Butler near Springfield, Ill. He was exchanged along with 1180 other prisoners at Vicksburg, Mississippi on Sept 20, 1862. He rejoined his company near Jacksonafter he was paroled and served until June 1865. After the Civil War, he married Margaret Burns and had a family by her. She, along withsome of their children died about 1879. The John H married a widow lady, Mahazy Ellen Lewis, with two children. Together they had a largefamily. In his declining years he filed for a pension in March 1903 from the State of Arkansas. He drew at first $25.00 and then was increased to $33.50. He drew this until his death in 1923 and his widow, Mahazy Ellen, drew the widows pension until her death, date is unknown. Pension record for her was dated 1924, so we know she died after 1924. Tom Vines's daughter, Jean, recalls sitting on her grandmothers lap & was given an apple. Jean was born in 1921, so 1924 would be about right for her death."

      The Arkansas Confederate Veterans & Widows Application # was 19614.
