Robert Henry Fenwick Sewall

M, b. 1846, d. 17 February 1929
     Robert Henry Fenwick Sewall was born in 1846. He was the son of Robert Henry Fenwick Sewall and Marie Evelina Hébert. Robert Henry Fenwick Sewall married Rachel C.F. Nelson, daughter of Dr. James Douglas Nelson and Jane Cecilia Kirk, on 1 March 1878 in Orleans, Louisiana.1 Robert Henry Fenwick Sewall died on 17 February 1929 in Charity Hospital, New Orleans, Louisiana.2
VETERAN FIGHTER FOR LOST CAUSES DIES IN HOSPITAL
Major Sewall Served in Civil War as Cavalryman
     A fighter died in New Orleans Sunday afternoon, a fighter for two lost causes. He was Major Robert H.F. Sewall. A fighter to the end.
     In the War Between the States Major Sewall fought under the Stars and Bars. From the time peace once more returned to the nation until Sunday afternoon he fought tirelessly to persuade local, state and government officials that his "spur dike" plan for controlling the inroads of the Mississippi river was the answer to the greatest problem of the Mississippi valley.
Major Sewall knew Appomattox Courthouse. Major Sewall was alive and well when the Bonnet Carre spillway, not spur dikes, was decided upon as the answer to the great flood danger of 1927.
Was Iberville Planter

     With his passing Sunday afternoon the champion of state's rights and spur dikes joined his fellows in Gray. He died at Charity hospital, still a fighter though 83 years old.
Following the end of the Civil war, Major Sewall returned to his plantation in Iberville parish. He was keenly alive to the ever-present danger of flood from the treacherous Mississippi which provided life for his crops and if the whim was strong, the death of those same crops. It became a problem which appealed to his nature as a fighter.
In July, 1924, after years of study he redoubled his efforts to get the United States government to apply his idea of constructing spur dikes to withstand the erosions of the Mississippi river water on the levees. He was a violent antagonist to further increase in height of the levees and to spillways.
Sought to Check Caving

     Major Sewall's eyesight was failing but not his spirit. He carried his fight for spur dikes into the board of state engineers.
Spur dikes - concrete piling driven into a caving bank, forcing the current of the swollen river to form an eddy. Instead of "eating out" the levees, was the major's contention, the spur dikes would cause a suspended silt to be deposited by the resulting eddy which would "make" instead of destroy the levee wall. Such dikes, was his argument, would force the water to the other side of the river and force it to scour out a channel there. The piling for the dikes would be of either concrete, (a plan patented by Major Sewall) or of wood driven in the river in an upstream direction at a 45 degree angle. The plan he advanced provided for water-tight sections of piling driven in sections 500, 1000, or some other distance in feet apart. The major contended that the idea had show [sic.] practical results near Shreveport and at the Poland street wharves in New Orleans.
Plan Impractical

     In 1887, so convinced was Major Sewall that his plan would solve the age-old problem, he quit his plantation and devoted his entire time to his new cause. Many engineers heard his arguments and in 1924 his plan was declared impractical. He found a companion spirit in Frank H. Waddill, noted engineer, who after reviewing Major Sewall's spur dike plan warmly supported the idea.
Trials were given the spur dike plan. It was found that while it was adaptable to furnishing and driving watertight sheet piling, as far as flood regulation was concerned Major Sewall's plan was impractical. And so, though defeated, Major Sewall died at Charity hospital Sunday afternoon at 5:30 p. m. Military funeral services in his honor will be held today at 1:15 p.m. at the P.J. McMahon chapel, 4800 Canal street, followed by services at St. Francis de Sales church at 1:45 p.m. At 3:15 p.m. the body will be sent to Baton Rouge for burial. Major Sewall earned his commission while serving in the Second Louisiana Cavalry during the Civil war. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs H.P. Simmonds and Mrs. C.P. Chester, and three sons, Robert H., James Nelson and P.H. Sewall. The Times-Picayune, 18 February 1929.3

Rufus Sewall1

M, b. 11 December 1802, d. 20 June 1842
     Rufus Sewall was born on 11 December 1802 in Hallowell, Maine, (though the M.I. in Oakland Cemetery gives the following year.)2 He was the son of David Sewall and Hannah Barrell.1 Rufus Sewall married Frances Elizabeth Farrell on 6 September 1827 in Hallowell, Maine.3 Rufus Sewall died on 20 June 1842 in Shreveport, Louisiana, at the age of 39.4,5 He was buried in Oakland Cemetery, Shreveport, Caddo Parish, Louisiana.6
There are various versions of his death. The Times-Picayune reports: Fatal Affrays at Shreveport. - On the evening of the 20th instant Rufus Sewell, of the firm of Robinson & Sewell, of Shreveport, in this state, was killed in an affray that took place in that town. It appears that in the early part of the day blows were exchanged between Charles Sewell, the brother of the deceased, and Dr. Hardwick ; that in the evening the deceased and his partner, Robinson, met Dr. Hardwick and one Hartsborough ut the tavern, when Sewell was knocked down, and while down a cut was inflicted with a bowie knife in his abdomen, of which he instantly died. The Natchitoches Herald of the 25th instant mentions another affray which took place a short time previous to the above at Shreveport, in which Charles A. Sewell, a brother of Rufus, was wounded and a man named Matthew Edwards killed. One Boyle in the first place attacked Sewell in a grocery with abusive language and on the letter coming out fired a pistol at him, wounding him in the leg. Edwards took Boyle's part, but on the arrival of police officers fled. He was shot, however, in endeavoring to make his escape, but Boyle was arrested. Fine times, truly, at Shreveport.
