Festus Bouregard was born in Hempstead County, Arkansas on July 3, 1844. His parents, Elmer (b. 1813 in North Carolina) and Marylizabeth Bishop (b. 1818 in North Carolina) had been married and lived in Carroll County, Tennessee fore they moved to Arkansas where Monty was born.
His real name is Monty Bouregard named after his third cousins uncle on his mother's grandfather's side which would make him a true friend of the South. His pap, Monty's dad Elmer, my step uncle twice removed, always laughed at his Momma, Monty's Momma Marylizabeth, which was my second nephew's middle sister JenaRey, for naming him Monty. She said it was cause she liked red so much and wisheth she had married one of them Canadian Mounted Monty soldier guys was why she named him Monty. My step uncle Elmer, twice removed, never took to kindly to that, he was kind of a thin skinned dude.
Anyway my niece slash nephew Monty ended up marryin Prentice from the McMullen family, who used to be known as the McCrearys but had to change their name cause the U.S. government people were closing in on them. Now I call Monty my niece slash nephew cause when we was 13 and skinny dipping I noticed certain things weren't right bout his body and when I mentioned this to him he got real red in the face and wooped me good.
Well anyway so he ends up marryin Prentice and why he never chose Hydie, Lydie, or Camille is way beyond me cause he was familiar with all four of the McMillan slash McCreary daughters if you know what I mean, and if you ax me they would-a treated him a whole lot better than Prentice done did. Why it's no wonder he'd done what he did taken off like that to California and livin high and mighty out there amongst all them there movie stars. Why he even became one his self on TV.
Anyways he's been living under the name of Monty Aspromonte (hifalutin and down right uppetie if ya was ta ask me) and were still friends seein as how we're family and I visit him ever now and again. He even taught me how to do this thing on the computer.
Another third cousin, Lawrence Ashley Reece (LAR for short) whose kin was Cyprus K. Reece (b. May 26, 1844 in Lauderdale County, Mississippi) in Gatesville and his mother Mary Harlow Griffith Reece (b. 1877 in McCulloch County),
moved out to California too and him and Monty are thick as thieves. Me and RaeLen my wife and first cousin from uncle Jessie's side are allowed to visit if we call first. LAR. tells us that's how things are done in California and he wouldn't want us to come all way to his house with him not being there. I like that, he's so thoughtful that way, after all we are family.
Family stories recorded by Joseph Bishop McCreary's youngest child, Nan Bishop Byrd McCreary of Phoenix, Arizona in March of 1964, describe events experienced by her father in the Confederate army. One stories bout a surprise attack at night by Federal soldiers upon Joseph's unit; "In all the confusion, my great great third uncle Private Bishop was unable to untie his horse and finally said"
"forget this sh ......" and just cut the rope, he later commented that "...at the time, it seemed like the biggest rope on earth. I'm only sorry that I had to leave my beloved bride behind".
But all's well that ends will, and this is where I come in. It seems that Beatrice Nellie Bishop, of the Phoenix, Arizona Bishop McCreary's was pretty smart when it came to stayin alive. After Joseph her new husband split she somehow hooked up with the son of the Comanche Chief after he rescued her.(This part was never made clear.) Anyways saw him eyeballing her beaded necklace and bracelets and she taught him how to do it, make those necklace and bracelet thingies I mean. Anyways as they say, the rest is history. So I am part Indian and part McCreary from Phoenix, Arizona.
Skeet is short for scoot and scoot is short for Scooter and that's what I was called from day one cause I was all over the place. My nickname is scootin Skeeter but sometimes they called me Skeet for short and it's no wonder I'm so confused and why
Skeeter's need love too.
Whew I think I'll go lay down for a while now. RaeLen ...... where'd you hide my Jug of shine?
