Alexander Caton one of the prominent fruit growers of Washington Co., Ark., and in 1883 located
on the farm on which he now lives. His orchard consists of 1,500 apple trees, 200 peach trees, and
he raises all kinds of small fruit and garden vegetables, being exceptionally successful in that line
of business. He was born near Wheeling, West Virginia, January 22, 1835, and is a son of Alfred
and Sarah (Sheddock) Caton, who are Virginians, and are residing in Montgomery County, Mo.
He is eighty-nine years of age, and she is about seventy-five. They were married in their native
state, and lived there and in West Virginia until 1840, when they moved to Ohio, and at the end of
fifteen years took up their abode in Missouri. They have been farmers all their lives, and have
been members of the Missionary Baptist Church for many years. Two sons and five daughters are
living of their family of eleven children. Alexander was the fourth child. He left home at the early
age of fifteen and began (p.924) working for wages at anything he could do. He resided in the
following states, in the order in which they are named: Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tenn.
While in the latter state the war broke out, and May 1861, he joined Henderson's Scouts and
served until the close of the war. He was in many skirmishes and did considerable scouting. He
was taken prisoner near Holly Springs, Miss., and retained at Cairo, Ill., about one month when he
was exchanged. Again captured at Walnut Hill, and was kept prisoner at Rock Island until the
close of war. He then located in St. Louis Co., Mo., where he farmed until 1874, when he went to
Texas and spent about seven years in freighting from Fort Worth south. He then came to
Washington Co., Ar., where he has since resided. In 1873 he married Elizabeth Allison, born in
Missouri and died in Texas. She was the mother of two children, both of whom died in infancy. In
1881 Mr Caton married his present wife, Elizabeth Crawley, born 1865 in Arkansas. She is the
mother of three: Jennie F. (deceased), William A. and Ada A. Mr and Mrs Caton are members
of the Christian Church. The Richhill fruit farm, owned and cultivated by Mr Caton, is located on
the Wyre road, twenty-two miles south of Fayetteville. This, the southern portion of Washington
County, Arkansas, is the best belt for fruit growing, and finer land for berries and vegetables is not
to be found in any of the Middle or Western States.
