Confederate States Army 11344, RG2, KY-C Division Col. Woodard Cavalry.

Lindon writes in his Application for Pension on July 25, 1910 as follows: "After our regiment was disbanded, I went to General Wheeler's army and served two or three months and was stricken down with pneumonia and went home by release of the captain. Was captured by the federal authority and was compelled to take the oath of allegiance."


Lynn (Lindon) Philpott migrated from Montgomery County, Tennessee and bought 120 acres of land in Johnson County, Arkansas.

Lindon was digging in a creek on his land with plans to build a steam run cotton mill when by chance he discovered an 18” vine of coal only a few inches below the surface.

Blacksmiths at the time used a high grade soft non-cloning coal mined in the western part of the county known as Philpott coal and was mined in Lee Township, Range 25 W., Townships 9 and 10 North. This is adjacent to the old stage line “Wire” road, so named because it carried the first telegraph wires from St. Louis South. This road was also the stage route now known as "Philpott Road". The coal was near the surface (overburden 6 to 30 feet) and was easily mined. It was considered at that time as the finest quality coal in the United States.
