"Dave Futch,farmer, College Hill, Ark. In the history of Columbia County, in its development, growth and continued advance to communities of welath and influence, Mr. Futch has borne a prmominent part. He has been a resident of this county since 1859, and is one of the old settlers and respected citizens. His birth occurred near Greenville, Ala., on May 12, 1830, and he is a son of Isaac Futch, who was born in North Carolina on May 9, 1795, and the grandson of Jacob Futch, who was of German descent. The father was reared in North Carolina, and was married in Alabama to Miss Susannah Mancill, who was born in South Carolina on January 23, 1794. The father died in Camden, Wilcox County, Ala., in 1868, and the mother in the same county in 1880. SHe was the daughter of William Mancill, who was of English descent. Dave Futch, the third of four children, only two now living, remained in Alabama until nineteen years of age, and recieved his education in the common schools. In 1850 he emigrated to Florida, from there, in 1851, he went to Jackson Parish, La., and from there to what is now Ouachita COunty, Ark., in 1852. After remaining there about six months, they went to what is now Columbia County, where he has since resided, except two years that he spent in Drew County, Ark., and Louisiana. Since that time this county has been his permanent home. In 1861 Mr. Futch enlisted in the Confederate army in Ouachita Guards, Third Arkansas Cavalry, and served until the close of the war. He was shot in the left hand by a bullet at Thompson's Station, near Spring Hill, Tenn., and at that time was in all the principal fights, from Dalton, Ga., to Atlanta. He was taken prisoner at Abbeville, Miss, in December, 1863, was conveyed to Holly Springs, Miss., and was there released by Gen. Van Dorn's cavalry, and restored to his company twenty days after being taken. At the close of the war he returned to Columbia County, when he was there married, on March 12, 1865, to Miss Mary E. Warnock, who was born in Ouachita County, Ark., in 1845, and who is the mother of five sons and five daughters, four sons and five daughters now living: William L., Margret (teaching school in Louisiana), Mary V. (teaching school), David P., Sary Jane F, Texas P., Robert A., Isaac, Nancy Ann, and Fred A. (deceased). Mr. Futch has 180 acres of land located thirteen miles north of the county seat, and has fifty acres under cultivation. He was made a Mason at Ouachita County in 1855. He is a Democrat in politics, and his first presidential vote was for James Buchanan. He takes a deep interest in all matters calculated to benefit his county, and is a prominent citizen. Mrs. Futch is a member of the Missionary Baptist Church, and our subject believes with the old Primitive Baptist Church."
