Jack Amos was a Choctaw Indian named 'Eahtonteube.' He was an Indian Scout during the Civil War. He was a resident of the Gilbert/Mabry family on their farm for many years in Chunky, Newton County, Mississippi and even taught the young Mabry kids how to speak a little Choctaw. Our Great Aunt Noda Mabry learned to speak some of the Choctaw language from him. The Gilbert and Mabry family looked after him in later years until his death. While he probably isn't buried at the Blue Springs Cemetery with this family, since he was and Indian he was probably given the burial rites of the Choctaw. However the tombstone stands in his honor. He was also said to have been one of the first to to arrive on scene of the great train wreck on the Chunky River and saved many people, by diving into the water to pull them to safety.
The following website gives an entire history of this Chunky, Newton County, Mississippi Famous Choctaw Indian Scout and well worth the read.
