"John R. Amos, was born in Roane County, Tenn., March 8, 1839, and is a son of Charles and Polly (HARVEY) Amos, natives, respectively, of South Carolina and Tennessee. Charles Amos was born in 1812, and when a young man went to Tennessee, and from there removed to a farm in Newton County, Mo. In 1858 he located in Sebastian County, Ark., where he remained until his death, which occurred in 1875. The mother of our subject died in 1863, and the father afterward married Sally Cook, a native of Tennessee, who survives her husband, and is now living with our subject.
"John R. Amos was about fifteen years of age when his parents located n Missouri, where he lived until 1858, at that time removing to Arkansas. In 1861 he enlisted in the Confederate army, and participated in the battles of Pea Ridge, Shiloh, Richmond, and Murfrees-boro. At the close of the war he returned to Arkansas, and resumed farming. In 1865 he married Kattie Mildham*, daughter of Jackson Mildham, and they had four children, viz.: John, Bettie, Marttie and Charley. Mrs. Amos died in 1871, and in 1874 Mr. Amos married Annie Hill**, who has borne him four children, three living: George Luther, Willie, and Albert Sidney. Simon was born in 1880, and died in 1885.

In politics he is a Democrat, and in religion he is a member of the Baptist Church. He also belongs to the A. F. and A. Am. Mrs. Amos is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
