DAYS OF YORE.
When Black Hawk Ruled This
A VETEEAN OF THE INDIAN WAE.
Interesting Kemliilrenres Related of Those
Times A Camp In 1B32 Appearance of
the IT. S. Troops Incident That are His
John 8. Tilford. of Vinton, Becton
county, Iowa, was in Davenport Tues
day and to the Democrat he talked for an
hour of the days of Zachary Taylor and
Gen. Winfield Scott and the Black Hawk
war. He was here when there wasn't a
sign of a white man's house, and be is
one of the few men living in this day
who were eclisted to fignt the Indians in
that struggle. Mr. Tilford wbs born
near Charleston. Clarke county, Ind..
July 30, 1811. His father w6 a farmer
and he lived and worked on the farm till,
at the age of 16 5 ears, be was appren
ticed to a cabinet maker, with the under
standing that he was to have four months
of each year for schooling. He went to
school six weeks and then threw up the
job of acquiring an education with the
facilities affordi d bim there. When the
Black Hawk war was on hand be enlisted
as a member of Capt. Lemuel Ford's com
pany or mounted rangers. There were
115 men in it, nil gathered up about
Cunrleeton, and tbey enlisted for a year.
Each man furnished bis horse, rifle and
ammunition, i nd contracted to feed him
self. With another Indiana company. two
from Illinois and one from Missouri and
Arkansas, forming what was known as
tbe RaDger corps, Mr. TilforcTs company
started west. CbicBgo was pasced. Rock
Island was the next j oint of importance
reached. Tbe start was made July 4,
1832 or immediately thereafter, but so
much time was lost in one manner and
another on the road that it was late in
the summer, early fall in fact, before
Rock Island was reached, and tbe Black
Hawk war whs over: Black Hawk's In
diacs ere encamped in a body nine
miles fiombere. Black Hawk, bis son and
other members of bis family, as all 6tu
dents of early btatorv know, were in tbe
bands of the United States forces as
prisoners, and Gen. Scott was on tbe
point of concluding a treaty with Black
Hawk. Tbe rangers spent anight or two
in lower Rock Inland, and then thev
crossed tbe river and encamped,
r aniline their tents along the river
front there. In a day or so the treaty
was made, and then Gen. Scott and bis
distinguished prisoners took passage on
a little steamer that bad been sent after
bim. and left for Washington.
Almost concurrent with tbe arrival of
the rangers bere tbe cholera appeared
Two members of Mr. Til fold's company
died and were buried near camp while
the company was in lower.Rock Island
It followed them, and then tbe
regiment was moved to tbe site of tbe
present town of Milan. Later that place
was abandoned for a camp on top of
Black Hawk's Watch Tower. Tilford
was accounted tbe best spring hunter in
the company, and he was sent out by
Capt. Ford to reconnoiter for water. He
found a spring that determined the loca
tion of tbe camp, and went by the name
of Tilford's Spring for many years.
About a month was spent in camp
here, and then under orders of the war
department, tbe rangers took up their
march for the Indian Territory.
At Fort Sibson tbe company was mus
tered out. Sworda nnd pistols hud been
furnished by the United States while
tbey were at Rock Inland, and these arms
were surrendered when tbe men left the
service. A few years ago Mr. Tilford
whs at Rock Ibland arsenal, the guest of
Co!. Flagler. He was shown the stump
end cf tbe Id fltig8ts.fi, which had been
excavated frcm its place near tbe island
end of the bridge, and was offered
enough of it to make bim a cane. He
d dined Ibis in favor cf an old fash
ioned, long out of date sabre, creoked as
a Persian scinieter, and tbe counterpart
of the sword be bad drawn and worn at
Rock Island and on bis march to the
southwest. Be has it yet.
Tbe camp at Rock Island was enliv
ened by the presence of several compan
ies of United States regular soldiers, as
well as by a number of other volunteer
companies. In one of the letter
was Abrahbm Lincoln, an under
officer, and Mr. Tilford remembers
s eing him here. He also recaHs
J Hereon Davis, who was then a licu'en
ant in charge of a regular company.
About that time it was that this young
man took bis command and made the
deecent of the river to tbe Indian town
of Flint Hills, where a presumptuous lot
of claim jumpers had crofsi'.d the river
and fquatted on the Iasd of
tbe natives. 1 He burned them out of
bouse and borne, and drove them onto
Big Wand in the Missis'ippi, wbuie t.bey
nearly perished with cold and hunger
that winter. The city of Burlington
stands on the place their pole-and-bark
mud-chinked thanties occupied. Gen.
Zachary Taylor and Gen. Scott are well
remembered. The latter was a frequent
visitor to tbe camp of the rangers.
After the cruel war was over Mr. Til
ford returned to bia home and bis trade,
following the latter for three years. In
1849 he came to Iowa end entered land
in Benton county. In 1851 he laid out
the town of Vinton, Brd tbe next year he
built a house atd moved bis family to
