In 1741 Benjamin Clement, of Amelia, patented land on Sycamore Creek of Staunton River, where a few years later he made his home.(William Muncus (Pittsylvania Co.) listed as the land buyer from Halifax County.) The names of William Blevin, Richard Echols and William Muncus, three first settlers, appear on the surveyor's record at this time; also Mary, Henry and Ephriam Sizemore, one of whose patents was on Peter Mitchell's Creek, beginning at "the Roads"; and another included the place on which Ephraim lived. (Ref.THE HISTORY of PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY VIRGINIA CHAPTER III FIRST SETTLEMENT) He was listed int the tithtables of PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY VIRGINIA in 1767. He died after 22 Feb 1798 in Surry Co, NC. Probably in 1809 when his will was probated.

More information William Muncus in Virginia. Send me from wonder man name Dave.

One source has a reference that I could locate easily on the map puts Wm. MUNCUS on an Island in the Staunton River near the mouth of Falling River. The junction of these two rivers is a boundary corner between HALIFAX, CAMPBELL and CHARLOTTE counties. I have not yet been able to look at many of the Halifax Co. references,but I thought you might like to see what I have uncovered so far. The number preceding each reference is my source number.

William MUNCUS was born about 1720 . In 1741 Benjamin Clement, of Amelia, patented land on Sycamore Creek of Staunton River, where a few years later he made his home.(William Muncus (Pittsylvania Co.) listed as the land buyer from Halifax County.) He was a land speculator, buying land, improving upon it, then selling it. The names of William Blevin, Richard Echols and William Muncus, three first settlers, appear on the surveyor's record at this time; also Mary, Henry and Ephriam Sizemore, one of whose patents was on Peter Mitchell's Creek, beginning at "the Roads"; and another included the place on which Ephraim lived. (Ref.THE HISTORY of PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY VIRGINIA CHAPTER III FIRST SETTLEMENT) He was listed in the tithtables of PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY VIRGINIA in 1767. In 1769, there is a reference made to him in a description of where a church is located in that same county. Somewhere around 1767-76 he was listed as a land buyer from halifax Co. His will was dated Feb.22,1796, in Surry Co. North Carolina.William had 2 family's. His first wife I have no information about. His second wife was named Elizabeth. Keep in mind, He had a son named William, and almost all of his son's had son's named William. Also, they all had son's named Benjamin, who had son's named William...Maybe not that bad, but without birthdays, you can't figure out who is who. He died before 22 Feb 1798 in Surrey Co, NC

Chouteau, a well known trader, William & Joel Estes Mill in Fishing River township. The boundaries were the state line on the north and west, Missouri River on the south and Ray County on the east. In August 1822 the election in the Fishing River township was held at the house of James Munkers, also in 1825 and 1826. The first road surveyed ran from Liberty to Bluffton (present day Camden) on the Missouri River which was the county seat of Ray County. The first Circuit Court was held March 4, 1822. One of the members of the Grand Jury was James Munkers. The first courthouse was built in 1832. In 1825 the charges on the ferry were: loaded wagon $2; empty wagon and horse $1.50’; loaded cart and team $1; a dearborn and horses or gig and horses 62 1/2 cents; man and horse 37 1/2 cents; single person 18 3/4 cents; horses, each 18 3/4 cents; sheep, hogs and cattle 3 cents each.

Means who came to Missouri in 1817, first locating in Howard County. Five years afterward they settled in Clay County where they lived until their deaths. The father was from North Carolina and the mother was a native of Virginia. In the August 1822 election some of the voters in Fishing River township were Andrew Means, Berryman Munkers, William Munkers, Richard Munkers, James Munkers, Robert McCoy and Jacob McCoy. One of the judges of the election was James Munkers (I was told that Berryman was actually Benjamin but the name wasn’t written clearly and was interpreted wrong) Erin Church located in the southeast corner of the southwest quarter of section 24 in the Fishing River township was organized on October 16, 1878 at the cost of $1,000.

William(3) and Margaret moved to Texas in the 1840's.

William and his family had settled on land in the Arkansas Territory before Arkansas became a state in 1836. The Pre-emption Act of 1830 gave thousands of squatters, who like William, had claimed the land, lived on it, improved it, but did not have legal rights to it, the opportunity to buy as much as 160 acres for as little as $1.25 an acre. William bought his property located near Cane Hill, Washington Co., AR. In 1847 he sold it and moved his family to Texas. He was married to Margaret COULTER in 1831 in Cane Hill, Washington Co., AR.3 Most information for this family comes from Thurman Monkres and from my research too.

The Arkansas Land Patents:

William Munkers own the following land

The land was near Fayeteville, Ar. 80,000 acres and 40,230 acres.

James Coulter Jr or Sr.own land near Fayeteville, Ar. 160,000 acres, 80,000 acres and 80,000 acres. Margaret father was James Coulter.

Jim Henry served in the confederate army. there is a copy of his military file and application for penison at the Oklahoma Historical Society in Oklahoma City. The following is where James H was captured.

Battle of Stone's River at Murfreeboro,Tennessee

IN BRIEF A fierce baffle took place at Stones River between December 31, 1862 and January 2, 1863. General Bragg’s Confederates withdrew after the battle, allowing General Rosecrans and the Union army to control middle Tennessee. Although the battle was tactically indecisive, it provided a much-needed boost to the North after the defeat at Fredericksburg. Lincoln later wrote to General Rosecrans, “I can never forget [..] you gave us a hard­eamed victory, which had there been a defeat instead, the nation could scarcely have lived over. The 570-acre National Battlefield includes Stones River National Cemetery, established in 1865, with more than 6,000 Union graves; and the Hazen Monument, believed to be the oldest Civil War monument. Portions of Fortress Rosecrans, a large earthen fort constructed after the battle, still stand and are preserved and interpreted by the National Park Service. Much of the nearly 4,000-acre battlefield is in private hands.

James Henry MONKRES and Rachel BURKE had the following children:
