THE CIVIL WAR YEARS[xii]

 


Effie Susan Boteler  - 1903

Grandfather Boteler had his own stories to tell about the Civil War years.  When he was just ten years old, his big brother, Henly , joined the Army of Northern Virginia which became famous as one of the bravest of the Southern Armies.  As soon as he was old enough to, he was thirteen, he joined his brother in the army as a "horse steward".

By this time, Henly was a part  of Mosby's Raiders, so John Honeycutt  took care of Mosby's horse, too.  He stayed with his brother for two years.  He was not with Henly when Henly was killed.  He thought Henly was killed in the Battle of the Wilderness in Fredericksburg, Virginia, but he couldn't be sure. 

Grandfather Boteler had been given the name "Honeycutt" because it was the last name of the doctor who delivered him.  It meant nothing to him.  But the name "Henly" was VERY important to him.  To keep his brother's name alive he insisted that from now on, his middle name was NOT Honeycutt, but Henly

Many years later, he was to sit under his old Sycamore tree and tell me stories as this one, about the time he was a horse steward in Mosby's Raiders in the great Civil War.

John & Frances (Peters) Boteler  had two (2) daughters:

2.4.1.  Susan Effie[xiii] or Effie Susan , b. 1881, Fauquier County, VA[xiv].  She attended the Methodist Church with her father.
2.4.2
.  Frances "Fannie" Elizabeth , b. 1891; d. ca. Dec 1906, Fauquier Co., VA, from {pneumonia} "complications from disease contracted while away at school"; bur. Boteler cemetery, near Bristersburg, Fauquier Co., VA. She attended the Baptist Church with her mother.  At the age of fifteen (15) Frances Elizabeth  also left to attend Longwood.

Effie Susan Boteler

2.4.1.  Effie Susan Boteler , daughter of John & Frances (Peters) Boteler , b. 19 Mar 1881, Fauquier Co., VA; d. 25 Dec 1966, Alexandria, VA; m. Cameron Cowne , son of William Augustine & Amanda  (Boteler) Cowne , b. 29 Nov 1864, Fauquier Co., VA; d. 20 Nov 1940, Fauquier Co., VA.

Effie Susan Boteler  left to attend Longwood Teacher's College in 1901.  There she graduated in February 1903, after earning her teacher's certificate.  She returned to Fauquier Co., VA to teach at the one room school at Calverton, where she had once been a student.
