At the opening of this century the village assumed gigantic proportions, and stores like mushrooms sprang up along its one street. John Doll opened one where Woodruff is, in 1805 or 1806. Leal, Baldwin & Edgerton soon had a good one above General Root's residence (now Dr. Buckley's); then Baldwin & Steele succeeded them on the corner now occupied by J. W. Woodruff. H. D. Gould commenced a store in 1819, down the street, where Middlemist is, and about the same year Jabez Hitchcolk opened another on the corner of Franklin road-now Franklin street. In 1821 H. D. Gould moved to the store of Baldwin & Steele, which was soon after moved off (now a portion of the Episcopal parsonage) and the present one was erected, which, occupied by Messrs. Gould, Blanchard, and Woodruff continuously, is still an excellent place of business. Since the incorporation of the village, the places of business everywhere have been sufficient, for the wants of the circle of trade.

Letter to his father, Hon. John W. Taylor, Ballston, N.Y. from Col. Vose Oct. 25, 1835


On Monday the 12th last, your son Lieut. James H. Taylor, left this post to go as far as Washington, Hempstead County, Arkansas territory, about 110 miles, for the purpose of visiting the Land Office at that place. He was to be absent about 7 or 8 days. Nothing was heard of him, after his departure, till yesterday, when I received a letter informing me that it was probable he had been drowned, on his return, while crossing a river which had been much swollen by recent rains, and which is about 70 miles from Fort Towson. He was seen on Saturday the 17th last, about three miles on the other side of the river, and bound homeward. On Tuesday last his horse was found in a swamp near the river, having on his saddle. From all these circumstances, there can be little doubt of the death of your son.

I have this morning dispatched two officers and two men to the river. They have orders to obtain all the facts relative to the melancholy event,—and, if possible, recover the remains and convey them to this post. I have thought it best to make this communication by the first mail, (though there may be a faint hope that your son yet lives) for the reason that a report of the death of Lieut. Taylor may reach you through the public prints.

If your son is dead, you may rest assured, my dear sir, that every effort will be made to recover the body,—and, if found, it will be conveyed to Fort Towson, and be interred with the honors of war.

Lieut. Taylor was a very excellent officer, and most highly esteemed by all those who have been associated with him. He was ever ready for his duty, and exceedingly correct in its discharge.

I shall write you again on the return of the command that has been sent to the river.

Very respectlully, your obed't servt., J. H. Vose

Lieut. Col. 3d Infantry Com'dg.

Vol. 1, Army and Navy Chronicle gives the following:

Resolved, That we deeply regret the melancholy and untimely death of our much esteemed friend and brother officer Lieut. J. H. Taylor.

Resolved, That in the death of Lieut. Taylor, society has lost a bright ornament, his companions in arms a friend, endeared to them by many manly traits and social virtues, and the army an intelligent and very efficient young officer.

Resolved, That the officers of this command warmly sympathie with the relatives and friends of the deceased in this sad bereavement.

Resolved, That the officers of this command wear the usual badge of mourning for the period of sixty days.

Resolved, That Lieut. Col. Vose, commanding at Ft. Towson, be requested to forward to the family of the deceased a copy of these resolutions.

Resolved, That a copy of the foregoing resolutions be forwarded to the editors of the Army and Navy Chronicle, the Arkansas Gazette, and the New York Courier and Enquirer, and that they be requested to publish the same.
