Kelso, Francis Marion (b. 28 JUN 1842, d. 26 NOV 1907)
Note: General Kelso was Lincoln County's most authenic hero from the
Civil War. On May 9, 1864, 25 men under his command were sent
to Fort Clifton on the James River
to man the guns there. At that moment no Confederate units were
in position to oppose the approaching federal gunboats. The
Federals were driven off with considerable
damage and Richmond was saved for another year.

General represented Lincoln County in the House from 1879 to
1899. He died while visiting his daughter in Knoxville.

Routt, John Martin (b. 12 DEC 1831, d. 15 FEB 1904)
Note: [Letter from John M. Routt to Wife]
Note: was born near Lexington, Kentucky. He was fourteen years old
when he came to Lincoln County. In 1850, with brothers James,
Richard and Hudson, he was living in the household of William
T. Ross, an important legal and political figure of
Fayetteville. John studied under Hal Dickerson, one of the most
respected educators of the day. He read law, probably under
William Ross, but this was is continued on account of poor
health. By 1860, John was supplementing his farm income by
teaching in the county schools.

John, James and Hudson Routt were baptised 12 December, 1852
at the Presbyterian Church in Fayetteville. However, John was a
member of the Methodist Episcopal
Church most of his life and raised his children there.
already teaching in the public schools.

John served in the 44th Tennessee, CSA as orderly sergeant.
Among other duties John was charged with collecting stragglers
in Lincoln County while Bragg's
army was stationed in Middle Tennessee. John and brother James
each were wounded in the left hip on the first day of battle at
Chickamauga. For a long time, he walked only by the assistance
of crutches.

After the war, in spite of his handicap, John continued
farming and prospered. He also returned to teaching and became
the first teacher at Smithland school.

It is possible that John's success farming was more the result
of wife Lou's efforts than of his own. Family tradition has it
that John was more interested in books than crops. Indeed, he
was known as one of the best read men in the county. And none
of it fiction. The memory of his great-granddaughter Edith Dunn
Childress is of an upstairs room at the old Routt home, crammed
just full of books.

Oh, what ever became of that library?!

Title: Letter from John Martin Routt in camp near Tullahome, Tenn. to
wife Louisa Jane (Kelso) Routt 11 Jan 1863
Abbreviation: Routt Letter
Author: John Martin ROUTT
Note: Camp near Tulahoma, Tennessee
January 11, 1863
Mrs. Lou J. Routt::
My dear wife, received your letter last night by George Martin.
I knew well the unpleasant anxiety you experienced while the
dreadful battle was progressing and afterwards till you heard
your husband and brother were safe. Josh left the Battlefield
Thursday morning. The heavy Infantry fighting on our wing (the
left was done on wednesday. He told Josh what took place that
day, but we could not tell what would occur afterwards. I wrote
to you by Bud Smith from Manchester, and hope you have received
my letter before now. I hope I shall be able to be at home some
time this week. I spoke to Col. Fulton this morning to know how
long it would probably be before I could start and he said that
he thought by Tuesday, adding it might be sooner or later. I am
coming to collect the absentees from our company. Keep this a
secret for they might escape. We remained at Estil Springs only
one day. We came from there here. I do not know how long we
will remain here. I cannot learn anything reliable about the
movement of the Yankees. I am satisfied they will not advance
soon against us, for I bear evidence of the fact that they were
dreadfully cut up. I had often heard that in Battle our troops
killed two or three and sometimes five to one, but had always
disbelieved it. I was over the Battle-field on the left wing
and I declare there were ten Yankees killed to one of our men,
and all the other boys say the same. Fully three-fourths of the
dead Yankees were shot through the head. This circumstance
arises from the fact that they all get behind trees or rocks,
and in the act are often shot. They wound many of our men in
the feet and legs. Hudson was wounded in the arm. I did see him
afterwards. I was before him in a few miles from Fayetteville,
therefore I guess he is at home. He acted finely in the battle.
General escaped, but was brushed very closely got several holes
shot through his coat. I was not touched. I am very anxious to
see brother Dick. I hope to see him before he leaves. I spoke
to captain Spencer about Jeff Smith. He died at Lauderdale
Springs Mississippi, Sept. 8, 186 . He was discharged Sept. 16,
at Glascow, Ky. eight days after his death, the fact of his
death not being known. His discharge was sent back to
Lauderdale Springs. Application will have to be made at that
place for his discharge and the other papers and they will all
have to be presented to the Quarter Master of this regiment in
order to draw his pay which is $134.83. My dear, I depended
much on the
intercesions I knew you w re makeing for me. The fact made me
easy. I did not expect to be hurt. I felt that I was safe. You
must continue to pray for me, my sweet wife, and for the cause
and everyone in it. General and I have talked about our
escaping, and both of us attribute it to prayers sent up for us
by our dear friends at hone. Oh! If you could have seen men
engaged in deadly conflict, and heard the sharp cracking of
small arms, and the dreadful booming of cannon, and the loud
bursting of shells, and the rattleing of the fragments as they
went tearing and whizzing through the air and timber what a
dreadful scene you would have witnessed. I will not continue
the sketch. Oh! pray the whole world for peace. General is
Luit. of the guard to-day and may not get to write. This will
go by Dr. Jenkins. Kiss willie and Johnnie for me.
Your Affective Husband,
John M. Routt
