9Marriage Record - Arrant/Anderson, Lincoln County, Georgia - Marriage Book, Book G-1, 1806/1829.
"Groom: David Arrant, Bride: Polly Anders[on], Date: November 4, 1822."
This appears to be the date of application.
David Arrant was easy identifed. Mary was listed as Polly Anders. There are no Anders listed in Lincoln County, Georgia by 1830. There is one Anderson family listed, that of Robert Anderson. It is believed he is Mary's father. Cornelius Arrant, David's brother, lives in the same area as Robert Anderson's family. This is probable how David meet Polly (Mary).

National Park Service Information:
CONFEDERATE LOUISIANA TROOPS
David Arrant Sr. - Film Number M378, roll 1 12th Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Camp Moore, Louisiana, in August, 1861. Its companies were from the parishes of Caldwell, Claiborne, Vermilion, Cameron, Calcasieu, Jackson, Ouachita, Bossier, and Iberia. Sent to Missouri, the unit was captured at Island No. 10 in April, 1862. After being exchanged, it was assigned to Rust's, Buford's, T.M. Scott's, and Lowry's Brigade.

New Madrid/Island No. 10
Location: City of New Madrid, Missouri; Lake County, Tennessee
Campaign: Joint Operations on the Middle Mississippi River (1862)
Dates: February 28-April 8, 1862
Principal Commanders: Brig. Gen. John Pope and Flag-Officer Andrew H. Foote [US]; Brig. Gen. John P. McCown and Brig. Gen. William W. Mackall [CS]
Forces Engaged: Army of the Mississippi [US]; Garrisons of New Madrid and Island No. 10 [CS]
Estimated Casualties: Unknown
Description: With the surrender of Forts Henry and Donelson, Tennessee, and the evacuation of Columbus, Kentucky, Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard, commander of the Confederate Army of the Mississippi, chose Island No. 10, about 60 river miles below Columbus, to be the strongpoint for defending the Mississippi River. Nearby was New Madrid, one of the weak points. Brig. Gen. John Pope, commander of the Union Army of the Mississippi, set out from Commerce, Missouri, to attack New Madrid, on February 28. The force marched overland through swamps, lugging supplies and artillery, reached the New Madrid outskirts on March 3, and laid siege to the city. Brig. Gen. John P. McCown, the garrison commander, defended both New Madrid and Island No. 10 from the fortifications. He launched a sortie, under Brig. Gen. M. Jeff Thompson, Missouri State Guard, against the besiegers and brought up heavy artillery to bombard them. On the 13th, the Confederates bombarded the Yankees to no avail. Since it did not appear possible to defend New Madrid, the Confederate gunboats and troops evacuated to Island No. 10 and Tiptonville. On the 14th, Pope’s army discovered that New Madrid was deserted and moved in to occupy it. A U.S. Navy flotilla, under the command of Flag-Officer Andrew H. Foote, arrived March 15 upstream from Island No. 10. The ironclad Carondelet on the night of April 4 passed the Island No. 10 batteries and anchored off New Madrid. Pittsburgh followed on the night of April 6. The ironclads helped to overawe the Confederate batteries and guns, enabling Pope’s men to cross the river and block the Confederate escape route. Brig. Gen. William W. Mackall, who replaced McCown, surrendered Island No. 10 on April 8. The Mississippi was now open down to Fort Pillow, Tennessee.
Result(s): Union victory

who is Tutor to the minor Florence Hicks who
is emancipated by marriage, with respect presents
herewith his final account of his Tutorship
with said emancipated minor in pursuance
with an order issued out of your Hon. Court.
Your Tutor avers that it is impossible for him
to file an acct. of her former Tutor, W. C Carr decd.
as he knew nothing of the said W. C. Carr's business
matters. Your Tutor avers that the final acct.
in the succession of W. C. Carr the former tutor
of the minors of Geo. W. & Elizabeth Hicks dec'd,
the said Florence Hicks herein being one of the
minors shows that six hundred dollars was
due them by said estate.

until after the homologation of the final account
in the succession of the said W. C. Carr.
That said succession was notoriously insolvent
[Page 60]

of their claim. Your Tutor only received Seventy
Seven Dollars of which he gives Florence Hicks
was duly homologated by your Hon. Court and
the admr. ordered to pay the debts porately [sic - prorated] and
their prorate share only being Seventy Seven Dollars
which your Tutor received.

of Geo. W. & Elizabeth Hicks dec'd. of which he
has given Florence Hicks credit herein for her
portion. He avers that the charges in this
final acct. are Seventy Five and 45/100 Dollars
and the same is correct, and the credits are
Thirty Four and 77/100 Dollars and the same is
correct. Showing a balance of Forty and 68/100 Dollars
ue the said Florence Hicks.
Wherefore your Tutor prays that this his
final account of his Tutorship of said
emancipated minor Florence Hicks heir of
Geo. W. & Elizabeth Hicks dec'd. be accepted,
approved and homologated by your Hon.
Court in all its parts and upon your Tutor
filing his vouchers the amounts he paid out
for her and his voucher showing a settlement
with her that his bond as to said emancipated
minor Florence Hicks be canceled and he
be discharged and relieved from any other
responsibility as to her tutorship.
He prays for general relief &c.

Opposition to

Filed February
14th, 1888.

In 3rd District Court, Union Parish, Louisiana.
In the matter of the Tutorship of Florence Hicks (Arrant).
Now come Florence Hicks (Arrant) and her
husband Calvin P. Arrant who joins her, his
said wife, to enable her to bring this opposition
and stand in judgment, both residents of
Union Parish, Louisiana and files this their
[Page 61]
opposition to the final account of John M. Lee Jr.
tutor to said Florence Hicks (Arrant) filed (December
31st A. D. 1887.
Opponent avers that her said tutor John M.
Lee Jr. has charged her in said final account
with twenty one & 80/100 dollars, for goods which
he alleges he bought for her during the years
1886 & 1887. She shows that said amount is far
in excess of the revenues of her property in
said tutor's hands, and as no family meeting
has ever been convoked to advise the spending
of any portion of her capital, said charge
by said tutor is illegally made and should
therefore be stricken from his final account, and that as thus amended said account
should be approved and homologated.
Opponent shows that since the death of her
parents, George & Elizabeth Hicks she has earned
a support with her labor, and that whatever
of the pittance left her by her said parents
has been spent, has been done in violation of
law. Wherefore, opponent prays that this her
opposition to said final account be sustained
and that the amount of twenty-one & 80/100 dollars
which said tutor has given himself credit
for in said account be stricken therefrom, and
that as thus amended said account be approved
and homologated.
She prays for all other necessary orders
for costs and general relief.

To the Hon. John Young, Judge of the 3rd
Dist. Court of La., in and Union Parish.
Robert C. Webb, a resident of Union Parish, La.,
and under tutor to the minor heirs of Geo. W
and Elizabeth Hicks, dec'd. hereby respectfully
petitions your Hon. Court and shows that about
Aug. the 30th last petitioner was apppoint-
ed by this Hon. Court as under tutor to the
minors, Jno. Newton, Florence, Edgar, Jefferson,
Carrie & M. B. Lee Hicks, children and heirs of
Geo. W. Hicks, dec'd, that Mrs. Elizabeth Hicks
was at same time appointed Tutrix to said minors -
that about Jany. the 17th last said Mrs. Elizabeth
Hicks, dec'd. leaving said minors without a tutor -
that John Newton Hicks who was a minor
when petitioner was appointed under tutor has
obtained his majority but that all the other
named children are still minors and that a
tutor should be appointed for them.
Petitioner shows that E. Jeff Lee has been
appointed admr. of both the successions of
Geo. W. & Elizabeth Hicks, dec'd. and has
obtained an order from this Hon. Court to
sell the personal property for cash to pay
debts and under said order he has advertised
the effects for sale to take place Feby. 21st 1885.
Petitioner believes it to be to the interest of
said said [sic] minors to have said effects sold on
time or partly on time - he thinks it is to the interest
also of said minors that some of the
effects, such as bedding & family relics be
bid in by their tutors for them. Petitioner
shows that there are several of said minor
and that their means are limited, hence it
may be best that a tutor should be appointed
to each of them separately - he shows that said
minors have a goodly number of relatives &
it is best that all of these questions be settled by a family meeting.
Wherefore petitioner prays that a family meeting be
convoked at once to be composed of the following relatives of said minors, viz"
[not readable on my copy]

[Page 31]
Hayes & Jno. M. Brantly, to deliberate and
advise in the interest of said minors upon the

Obituary
Little Lee Hicks, youngest child of G. W. and Elizabeth Hicks, dec'd, aged
two years, ten months and three days, died January 29, 1887, from a burn
received by turning over a can of grease. Little Lee being left an orphan
when a mere babe was taken by Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Hall to raise, became the
darling of their bosom, and was loved by all who knew him. Although your
love is great, dear parents, grieve not for your little boy, but rest with
the happy thought that he is now where no pain can enter.

The night was long and rainy,
Poor baby's sufferings great,
Until two o'clock on Saturday eve,
It leaped for the heavenly gate.

J. G. Taylor.".
