1. Bernice Allen, “McGee Land,” 2/24/2005.
I am very excited about and encouraged by what I saw yesterday during a visit with an individual that I had met a couple of months ago.  She is not related to the McGees.  I told her of my interest in information on John McGee.  At a second meeting she told me she had, in her possession, some old papers with a  John McGee named in them.  I made an appointment to visit  her yesterday.  I could hardly believe what she had.  I think those documents support our belief that John McGee born 1808 was John, Jr.  His father was John, Sr. and his mother was Barbary Turner (daugter of William & Elizabeth Turner).  Their children:  Moses, Noah, and John.  After the death of John, Elizabeth married Andrew Gilmore.
The father of John, Sr. was Daniel McGee.  Daniel is listed in the 1800 census.  Daniel could have been a son of William.  The ages of each generation would fit.
Now, information on the McGee land grant.  The original land grant was held by Robert Fullwood.  Robert Fullwood transferred 11,500 acres to Daniel McGee , and from Daniel to his sons Noah and John.  Perhaps Moses had died.  I am hoping to make copies of the documents.  They are in very poor condition.  I have a copy of a South Carolina map prior to 1785.  It shows our area being in Georgetown District, Prince Frederick Parish and to our west, Camden District, St. Mark Parish.  This could help in researching records.
Hope you find this interesting.

McGee didn't know how to give up

By Jerry Bellune
Email this story to a friend

When he was 16, LuRue McGee was injured in a car accident that might have killed almost anyone else.

For the next 45 years, he was confined to a wheelchair. But it did not slow him down or deprive him of enjoying life.

In 1972, his brother Ted recalled, LuRue McGee’s doctor advised him to get his affairs in order as he had a year to live.

McGee told him he was going to get another doctor, one who believed he would live.

Although his condition deteriorated over the year, he did not stop or even slow down.

On a portable guerney and intravenous medication, he and his fiancee, Carolyn Church, recently journeyed to Pigeon Forger, Tenn, and Indiana to see family.

“He loved to sing,” she said. “I’d drive and he would sing.”

The two first met when she was 16 and he was 23 at Doug Broome’s Drive-In, a Columbia institution 40 years ago. The two became reacquainted 10 years ago and were engaged to marry.

“He was a dreamer,” Carolyn Church said, “He loved people, especially children.”

McGee, 61, loved hunting, fishing and the outdoors. He had a custom deerstand built with an elevator to lift him.

McGee and his brothers operated the family real estate firm on Meeting Street in West Columbia founded by their father, Ted, Sr.

The three brothers became auctioneers and established a successful auction business and were active in the community.

“He loved to do charity auctions,” his brother Carroll recalled. “He probably did more charity auctions than any auctioneers in South Carolina.”

Due to his disabilities, he had to give up driving. But he never gave up hope and planned to adapt his van so he could drive.

“LuRue was on so much medication,” his brother Carroll said, “it wouldn’t have been safe for him to drive but he wanted to. He thought he should be able to do anything and everything that everybody else did.”

Sunday, Jan. 12, as he was preparing to go out to lunch and shopping with Carolyn, he collapsed and was taken to Lexington Medical Center, his brothers said.

It was his last trip.

Services were held last Wednesday at Main Street United Methodist Church, officiated by the Rev. Joseph Cal. Watson and Rev. Sandra Stevens-Poirel, with burial in Southland Memorial Gardens.

Pallbearers were Ted Ollie McGee, III, Kevin Huntley McGee, Alan Lunsford, Brent LuRue McGee, David Wesley Cox and George Dircks. Honorary pallbearers were West Columbia-Cayce Rotary Club members and the McGee Marketing staff. Memorials may be made to Lexington County Children’s Shelter or the charity of one’s choice.

He was born in Andrews, S.C., the son of the late Ted O. McGee, Sr. and Pearly Miles McGee. He was a member of Main Street United Methodist Church, a Paul Harris Fellow and member of the West Columbia-Cayce Rotary Club and served on the Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School board.

Surviving are his sister Miriam Smith of West Columbia, brothers Ted O. McGee of Lexington and Carroll McGee of West Columbia and fiancee Carolyn Church.

Death Notices
Charles Henry McGee   
WAXHAW -- Mr. Charles Henry McGee, age 62, passed away April 17, 2002 (Wednesday) at a local area hospital.
Mr. McGee was born October 2, 1939 in Forsyth County, NC, a son of the late Mr. Henry Samuel McGee and the late Mrs. Bonnie Pearl Carriker McGee. He was also preceded in death by a brother, Steven Lane McGee in 1953. Mr. McGee had lived in Waxhaw for 39 years.
Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Patsy G. McGee of the home; (two) daughters, Ms. Gloria Jane McGee Hope of Waxhaw, and Mrs. Gay Gamble McGee Diller and son-in-law, Brett Russell Diller, of Waxhaw; (four) grandchildren, Patricia Lynn Hope, Katherine McGee Hope, Charles Russell Diller and Brett Henry Diller, all of Waxhaw; (two) brothers, Mr. Jim McGee of Mint Hill, NC and Mr. Richard McGee of Charlotte, NC; (three) sisters, Mrs. Katherine M. Cox and Mrs. Sarah M. Morgan, both of Monroe, and Mrs. Bonnie M. Huntley of Mint HIll, NC.
The family will receive friends and relatives for visitation Saturday afternoon (April 20, 2002) from 4:00 PM until 6:00 PM at his home in Waxhaw.
Funeral services will be Sunday afternoon (April 21, 2002) at 4:00 PM in the Pleasant Grove Campground Arbor at Mineral Springs, NC, conducted by the Reverend Dr. James G. Mackey, pastor of Waxhaw United Methodist Church. Burial will follow in the Waxhaw City Cemetery in Waxhaw, NC.
The family has suggested that memorials may be made to the Waxhaw United Methodist Church, PO Box #9, Waxhaw, NC 28173.
There are almost as many facets to Charles Henry McGee as there are adjectives to describe him. He was a successful businessman, a civic and church leader, a citizen who took his politics and his country seriously, and a man who loved his farm. Most of all, he was a husband, father, brother and friend. There probably is not a space in Union County that could hold all the people who love and respect Charles McGee, and want to pay tribute to him. That is one reason why his family chose the historic Arbor at Pleasant Grove Campground as the place for his funeral. The other reason is that Pleasant Grove is a place Charles loved and watched over, as he loved and watched over his community, his church and his family.
Family and friends have gathered around Charles' wife Patricia Niven Gamble McGee - Patsy as she is known far and wide - and his daughters Gloria and Gay and their children. Every person has shared a piece of the panorama of Charles' remarkable life. When Charles and Patsy McGee married 39 years ago, two very large families merged. Relatives and friends have traded stories about Charles' wit, his generosity, his humility and his boundless zest for life. As one cousin remarked, "Charles was one of the most fully alive persons I've ever known."
With his father and his brother, Henry and Richard McGee, Charles founded McGee Corporation in 1961. The company manufactures canopies for the gasoline industry. After Henry McGee died in 1974, Charles and his brother Richard ran the business as partners. "Charles deserves so much credit for the success of the McGee Corporation," Richard McGee reflected, citing his brother's gift for customer relations, marketing and design. "He was my brother and my business partner," Richard said, "and the best friend I've ever had."
Several years ago, Charles McGee sold his interest in McGee Corporation so that he could slow down and spend more time with his family. "He was a Pied Piper with children," one family member commented. "His grandchildren and all the surrogate grandchildren who flocked to the farm loved nothing better than exploring the woods and the meadows with Charles. It was an adventure and an education, and so much fun for children of all ages."
Charles McGee also loved spending time with his sisters and brothers and their children. With his sisters Katherine Cox and Sara Morgan of Monroe and Bonnie Huntley of Mint Hill, he planned day trips to places of interest. He and brother Jim McGee exchanged books to read. Charles' cousins Penelope and Jennifer Niven, both writers, spoke of his constant encouragement. His cousin Lynn Clark recalled that when her grandson Nathaniel was asked where he wanted to go on vacation, he immediately replied "To Charles and Patsy's house." The McGees opened their home and their farm to hundreds of relatives and friends.
Charles McGee was a leader in the creation of the Andrew Jackson Memorial and Museum of the Waxhaws, and its founding president; a supporter of political causes he believed in; a mainstay of the Waxhaw Methodist Church; an active member of the Petroleum Marketing Association; a widely admired businessman. He loved the out-of-doors, from his Union County farm to the Carolina coast to the desert Southwest. He was known and loved for his sense of humor, his western hats, his love of fishing, his capacity for friendship, his appreciation for books and art, his ability to recite all the parts in the play and film "Driving Miss Daisy," his keen intelligence, his thoughtful understanding of the human condition, and his love for this family -- his own family, and the great human family.
McEwen Funeral Home of Monroe is serving the family of Mr. McGee.

Dear Family,
It is with deep sorrow that I inform you that Dad died this morning at 10:58 a.m. our time.  I was with him and his passing was gentle and peaceful.  I'm sure there is a joyous reunion in heaven.
Dad had become ill and was admitted to the hospital on Sunday, 12/9.  He seemed to improve after the first two days, but then declined rapidly.  The physicians involved in his care all agreed that returning him to Whittier Place on hospice care was the kindest and best thing for him.  He returned to Whittier Place last evening and had great care from the nurses and caregivers.  I went over this morning and sat with him and was able to hold his hand and tell him how much I loved him until his last breath.  I know he is now truly home, and while we are all very sad, we feel blessed that he did not suffer or linger and passed so peacefully.
Services are pending, but will be kept small.  I know all of us would appreciate your thoughts and prayers at this time.  Thank you for loving my Dad and know that he loved all of you so very much.
Love to everyone,
122. Phyllis McGee Woodring, “Spelling of Daddy’s Name,” 9/25/2005.
My name is Phyllis McGee Woodring. I am sister to Jackie Lee McGee whom you met at the McGee reunion Saturday. Our dad was Jesse Asberry McGee. Jackie told me about your site and gave me the password. I noticed that Daddy's name was spelled incorrectly, so I wanted it to be corrected.
It is Jesse Asberry McGee and he was called Berry (not Barry)
Jackie says there is some sheet we can complete to make your records more up to date. If you can send me that on-line, I will be happy to do my part of it.
Sorry I was unable to be there Saturday.  I live in Falls Church, VA, and felt it my responsibility to march in the Peach March on DC Saturday.

Hi Wayne--I just looked up Daddy and wanted to give you additional info.  On the list of names you have him as Jesse Asbarry (Barry) but it is Asberry (Berry).  It is correct when you click on the name and go to the information.  Additional information is that he died on Oct. 14, 1983.  He is buried in Concord NC.  His occupation was salesman.  His education was 8th grade and his religion was True Light.  Mom--Johnsie Mae Blackwelder McGee  was born May 18, 1921.  She died Aug. 9, 1993 in Charleston SC but is buried in Concord NC.  She was a retail store manager and had a high school diploma.  Her religion was Methodist.  The children are Phyllis Ann McGee Woodring

Hi Wayne,
We met at the McGee Reunion this past Sat. at Sandhill.  I had such a good time seeing cousins that I didn't even know I had!  I only wish Grandma could've been there but I'm sure she was watching down and smiling at all that good food we had!
After looking up my information I noticed some of it was incorrect so I thought I'd correct it for you.  Some of the confusion may have been because Grandma actually raised my, so she was really like my Mother.
Doris Smith Morgan was my Grandmother.  My Mother is Cheryl Ann Morgan and my Father is Jimmy Earl Miles.  So, I my maiden name is Miles.  The father you listed under my name is actually my mother's brother, Charles Martin Morgan.  He has two children as you have listed.  I am an only child as is my son, Ethan James. 
If you are interested in any other information such as birthdays, anniversaries I would be more than happy to provide as much as I can for my family members.
Thanks for all that you do.  My Grandmother really enjoyed getting together with you all and reminiscing.  I'm trying to continue what she would've if she were still here.
Thanks again,
Renee Miles Mitchell

JUDGE JOHN G. KELLY We are now permitted to touch briefly upon the life history of one who has retained a personnel association with the affairs of Marion county throughout life, and is today one of its most distinguished and honored citizens, a worthy representative of a prominent old pioneer family. His grandfather, Col. John Kelly, a native of Virginia, and a well educated gentleman, came to Marion county, Tenn., at an early day, and as a surveyor laid out and chartered the old Chattanooga & Nashville pike, the charter now being in possession of our subject. He was a Whig in politics; was a delegate to the first state convention, served as county court clerk of Marion county, and also filled the office of justice of the peace. He married Miss Nancy Mayo, also a native of the Old Dominion, and both lived to quite an advanced age. They were Presbyterians in religious faith, belonging to the church at Ebenezer, and he took an active part in the organization of the Masonic lodge here, which he afterward represented in the grand lodge.

Alexander Kelly, the father of the Judge, was born October 7, 1803, at Old Liberty in the upper part of Marion county, and was educated in the common schools of the valley. Though his advantages in this direction were rather limited he made the most of them, became a great reader, was a man of sound judgment and was always very industrious and enterprising. He started in life as a mechanic, and helped to build the first courthouse in Marion county at Jasper, but later in life removed to a farm three miles east of Jasper, and to agricultural pursuits devoted considerable attention throughout the remainder of his life. After living upon the farm for a number of years, he took charge of Kelly’s Ferry, which he conducted until some time during the ‘50’s.

He served as justice of the peace and county court clerk before the Civil war; was first a Whig and later a Republican in politics. Socially he was identified with the Masonic fraternity; and religiously both he and his wife were earnest members of the Cumberland Presbyterian church. In early manhood he married Miss Elizabeth Oates, who was born in November, 1803, and died at Oates Landing, on the Tennessee river, at the age of sixty-four years. His death occurred upon his farm, three miles east of Jasper, when he was sixty-seven years of age. In their family were eight children, six sons and two daughters, of whom four are now living: Nancy M., widow of P. C. Peck, and a resident of Marion county; John G., of this sketch; Eli T., a farmer living three miles east of Jasper; and James Clay, a resident of Sequatchie county, Tenn. Those deceased are, David C., who served as circuit court clerk and postmaster at Jasper; Abigail, who died at Oates Landing during girlhood; and Thomas who died at the same place.

Judge Kelly was born on the old home farm east of Jasper, December 29, 1832, and was educated at Sam Houston Academy. Hunting was his chief delight during boyhood and youth, and with a pack of hounds he hunted from Chattanooga to Stephenson, Ala. After reaching man’s estate he commenced farming and continued to follow that pursuit until the outbreak of the Civil war. Loyal to the Union, in 1861, he joined Knight’s company, Swain’s division, and was in the secret service all through the war, acting as a scout, carrying messages, and guiding men through to the federal lines when they wished to join the Union service. He was with General Rosecrans and Thomas most of the time. This was a very valuable as well as dangerous service, and he was twice arrested by Confederate troops, once by Captain Alley’s company, but escaped from the soldier that was guarding him. He was present at the battles of Lookout Mountain, Wauhatchie and Missionary Ridge, but he carried no guns and took no part in the engagements as his services were not in the ranks, being back and forth through the lines many times.

After the war was over, Judge Kelly operated a farm east of Jasper given him by his father, but in 1876 removed to South Pittsburg, and for one year was connected with the Coal & Iron Company. He then engaged in farming and speculating, later conducted a meat market, and served as postmaster at South Pittsburg during President Hayes’ administration. He established the South Pittsburg “Republican,” the first Republican paper published in the Sequatchie valley. His fellow citizens recognizing his worth and ability have often called upon him to fill important official positions. He was the first mayor of South Pittsburg, has been justice of the peace, and in 1894 was honored with the election to the office of county judge for a term of eight years.

In 1859, Judge Kelly was united in marriage with Miss Barbara Jane Bean, a native of Sweden’s Cove, Marion county, and a daughter of Owen R. Bean, who was born in Middle Tennessee. She died October 15, 1894. Of the seven children born to this union six are still living, namely: Martha E., who is a successful teacher, residing at home with her father; Nancy F., wife of B. A. Heard, an attorney of South Pittsburg; A. O., who is connected with the iron and coal mines at Inman; Mary Abigail, wife of S. R. Ransom, a prominent citizen of South Pittsburg; John C., postmaster at Jasper; and Joseph B. H., at home.

For generations some of the Kelly family have held membership in Olive Branch lodge, F. & A. M. of Jasper, and the Judge has affiliated with that fraternity since 1858. He also belongs to the Ancient Order of United Workmen and is one of the leading and prominent members of the Cumberland Presbyterian church at Jasper, in which he is serving as elder. In his political affiliations he is a stanch Republican.

Surnames: Farquhar, Trezevant

John and Robert Farquhar were born in Bilbo, Parish of Crimond, Aberdeenshire, Scotland in the 1750s. John born in 1751.

John left his homeland and entered service in the Indian Army. Wounded, he retired from active service and stayed on in India as a merchant/clerk. He used his knowledge of chemistry to amass a large fortune manufacturing gun powder for the British Indian Army. He established himself in London, England where investments grew his fortune to over 1.5 million pounds at his death in 1826. Never married he left his fortune to his nieces and nephews. One niece, daughter of his Brother Robert, moved from South Carolina with her husband- last name Trezevant and took up residence in his estate.

Robert Farquhar left Scotland for South Carolina. Became prosperous as clothing manufacturer and merchant. During the American Revolution he lent the state of Georgia $6000.00 [never repaid] for uniforms. Supplied other materials to the revolutionary cause. Fitted out a privateer and died at sea during the revolution.

Does anyone else have further information on these remarkable brothers? Parents siblings?

I will try to check here but would prefer a response via email.

Wayne, I was talking to Martha Monteith Lever today - I noticed you had used her DAR application as a source of information - she gave me this on her line:

Her full name is Martha Yates Monteith

Her sister Isabel and Elizabeth both had the middle name Grey (she wasn't sure if it was Grey or Gray, but thought Grey)

Her Mother's middle name was Joe instead of Jo - Mary Joe Thomas died
12/28/1973 and is buried at Elmwood

not a lot of additional information, but some.

Here it is.
No Room in the Tent for Polecats
By W. B. Foster, San Antonio, Texas

I was born January 6, 1849, one mile from Foster Cross Road, Sequado Valley, East Tennesee. I lost my mother when I was seven years old. One year later my father married Mrs. Julia Morris and moved to Hickory Hill, Gallatin county, Illinois. I stayed there until I was eighteen years old, then I went to East Tennessee, staying there three years and then drifted over to Trotters Landing, Mississippi, and from there came to Texas. I landed in San Antonio April 6, 1871. Killed my first wolf on Dignoity Hill, now being in the city limits. I was there only a short time until I hired to W. M. Todd to go north with cattle. Wade Hampton of Sequin had charge of the herd. Todd bought horses for himself. Major George of Sequin and Monoy & Wilbert of Nevada also hired men for Todd's three outfits. We camped for several days under a big hackberry tree that now stands on Roosevelt Avenue in San Antonio. From there we went to Guadalupe River. Major George took one outfit to Sequin. We camped in a little pasture belongong to Mr. Braners just north of Youngford. While there Col. Todd bought a fine pair of steers from Edwards & Erwin. He wanted them broke to work so we drove them out to the prairie, roped and tied them down, yoked them and tied their tails together, tied the bed to the wagon, put a rope around their horns, put a half hitch in their mouths and then hitched them to the wagon. Al Meyers and myself got into the wagon to drive, the boys untied their legs and other men rode on each side to keep them straight, and if you don't think we had a ride over those hogwallows, you have another thought coming. We could handle them when we went to receiving cattle.

We next moved to Cordova Pens, four and a half miles northwest of Sequin, where we road-branded the cattle TOD that we had received from J. Plumer at the May pasture, two miles from the Sutherland Springs, the ranch brand being AT. We received 1,300 head in four herds. In coming from the May pasture to the branding pens, we came by Sutherland Sprins, cross the Guadalupe River at Sheffield Ford below Sequin, and passed north of Sequin.

Just as we started on the trail, W. M. Pusey came from Denver, Colorado. Todd let him have Wade Hampton to help him gather a herd. Pusey was Todd's son-in-law. Todd then hired Col. G. W. Nail of Hunter to boss his herd. We crossed the San Geronimo Creek at the Austin Crossing, the San Marcos at the McGee crossing by the Manchaca Springs, here I witnessed the densest fog I ever seen. We crossed the Colorado River west of Austin, left Round Rock to the left, and crossed the Gabrield River some distance east of town. Little River was up, as it had been raining and everything crossed but one steer. I roped him and got him in the water and he swam across.

Todd had a very fine mare which he had brought from Nick Crenshaw at Sequin. A man by the name of Thompson, who was riding her, went around a bend of the river here and we never heard or saw anything of him or the mare after that.

We crossed just above the suspension bridge at Waco. At Hillsboro the cattle stampeded around a school house. The young lady teacher was quick to close the door, but the kiddies were scared just the same. I rode a big horse that I called "Jack Moore" and he was some horse. We had just left Hillsboro, when the cattle spied a little girl going to school with a red shawl on her head. Each corner of the shawl was blown by the wind and this was more than the cattle could stand. I was behind the herd and saw what was exciting the cattle so I got all there was in "Jack Moore" and picked her up just in time.

JAMES C. KELLY, a prominent and prosperous citizen and a member of the agricultural district of Sequatchie county, was born in Mullins Cove, Marion county, Tenn., and has spent his entire life in the eastern part of that state. He was born October 12, 1842, the son of Alexander and Elizabeth (Oatts) Kelly, and is now making his home in the Fifth district, Sequatchie county, not far from the village of Delphi.

Alexander Kelly was a son of Col. John Kelly. The latter had two brothers, William and Alexander, who also lived in the valley. He was a surveyor by occupation, and was quite widely known, and died in Marion county. Of his family we have the following record: Thomas was a resident of Georgia, but probably died in Florida; James was living in Texas when last heard of; Valentine died in Texas; Alexander, our subject’s father; Maj. William J. is a civil engineer and lives east of Jasper. The daughters were: Esther, wife of Ignatius Hall, died in Marion county; Polly, wife of Erasmus Alley, died in Marion county, Tenn.; Mrs. James Hoge died in Georgia; and Jane died, unmarried, in Marion county, Tenn.

Alexander Kelly was ruling elder at Ebenezer, which is the location of the old camping ground. By occupation he followed farming all his life, and, in connection with that vocation, he kept store at different times, and also kept the Kelly ferry. he was a slave-owner before the war, owning twenty-five negro slaves. He was a man of large means, but was very generous. He died about 1878, at the age of seventy-five years, in Marion county, Tenn., which had been his home since early boyhood, and his wife died in 1871, at the age of about seventy years. they were both members of the Cumberland Presbyterian church. The Oatts family is one of the oldest families in the valley. Elizabeth (Oatts) Kelly, our subject’s mother, was a daughter of Col. David Oatts, who moved to the valley from Virginia. To Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Kelly were born the following children: David, who died in Jasper, Marion county, was a farmer for many years; he also served as register of deeds and clerk of the circuit court, and was postmaster for many years at Jasper; Nancy M., still living near Inman, in Marion county, widow of Dudley C. Peck; John G., of Jasper, is now the judge of Marion county, Tenn.; Eli T., is a farmer of Marion county, Tenn.; James C., the subject of this sketch; William E,. who died at Kelly’s Ferry; Abigail, deceased; and a child who died in infancy.

James C. Kelly, the subject of this sketch, was reared at Kelly’s ferry, near Jasper, Marion county, Tenn. Before the war he entered Sam Houston Academy, but made his home with his parents until twenty-seven years of age, and helped his father in the management of his farm. In 1867 he was united with Miss Martha Early, daughter of Rev. A. P. Early, a noted minister of the Cumberland Presbyterian church who was engaged for many years in preaching throughout eastern Tennessee. Rev. Early was a near relative of Gen. Jubal A. Early. Mrs. Kelly was born in the state of Georgia, in 1848, and her wedded life has been blessed by the advent of a family of seven children, all of whom are living, viz: Albert O., of Whitwell, Tenn., connected with the coal company of that city; William A., is also with the coal company at Whitwell, Tenn; Henry W., is with his father on the farm; Elizabeth J., Early C. and Ida M. and Thomas C., still at home. At the time of his marriage our subject began farming in Marion county, and made his home there until 1875, when he bought his present home and moved to it. he has served the citizens of Sequatchie county in the capacity of register of deeds, was elected in 1884, and held office for one term. Politically, he is a Republican and is one of the few followers of that party that have held office in Sequatchie county. He and his wife are both members of the Cumberland Presbyterian church and our subject has held the position of ruling elder of the same for many consecutive years. During the war the Kelly family sympathized with the North and Alexander Kelly was in a position where he had considerable influence with some of the men in power in the Federal army, and served on the board of claims at the close of the hostilities.

I found the following marked graves at Hooker:

 Bessie B. Foster (Dec 10, 1904 - Aug 18, 1986)

Eliza Jane Foster (Apr 2, 1881 - June 8, 1958)

James A. Foster (Nov 30, 1910 - Sep 22, 1982) next to Mildred L. Foster (July 12, 1912 - no death date on stone in 1992 when I recorded the cemetery originally).

Bertha Lily Roope (Feb 10, 1892 - Sep 12, 1959)

Joe Roope (1885 - 1973)

Margaret E. Roope (Dec 27, 1918 - May 10, 1940)

Jack R. Roope (June 9, 1887 - Mar 16, 1947)

I think there are two members of the Roope family buried at Murphy Hollow Cemetery. I'll try to pull that record later today to check for you.

I did not find Sarah Jane Foster but there are many unmarked graves in all of the cemeteries in Dade County with no records kept. I did not find James Alexander Foster, Jr either.

I've got to make a couple of photographs for someone else of a couple of graves at Hooker this week... do you need photos also?

You might try checking Kelly's Felly Cemetery online by going to and then follow the links.

Hon. Jones C. Beene - There are in every community men of great force of character and exceptional ability, who by reason of their capacity for leadership become recognized as foremost citizens, and bear a most important part in the development and progress of the locality with which they are connected. Such a man is Mr. Beene, who is one of the most prominent and distinguished citizens of South Pittsburg, Marion county, and is a worthy representative of one of the honored pioneer families of the State.

He was born September 3, 1844, in Sweeden's cove, Marion county, whither his parents, Owen R. and Martha (Raulston) Beene, had come in childhood about 1820 with their respective parents, the former from North Carolina, the latter from Virginia. A member of the Beene family erected the first cabin built in Tennessee, and his first white child born in this state was a Beene, while the first paper published within its borders was printed at Jonesboro by our subject's grandfather Raulston, who afterward removed to Knoxville. Col. James Raulston was a soldier of the war of 1812, an officer of considerable rank under General Jackson at the battle of New Orleans, and he afterward was a prominent member of the state legislature of Alabama. He died in that state. He had received an excellent education in some institution of learning in Virginia, and became a noted geologist. Obediah Beene, our subject's paternal grandfather, was a man of means and influence, who served as justice of the peace in Marion county for forty years.

Owen R. Beene, father of our subject, followed agricultural pursuits throughout life and was a successful business man. He was married to Miss Martha Raulston in 1830 in Kings Cove, Jackson county, Alabama, just across the Tennessee state line, and in 1858 they became residents of South Pittsburg, Marion county, where the former died February 22, 1895, aged seventy-eight years, the latter in January, 1898, aged eighty-one. They were active and prominent members of the Primitive Baptist church, and he was a Democrat in politics. In their family were ten children, of whom seven are still living: Mrs. Washington Pryor, whose sketch is given elsewhere in this volume; Mrs. Richards, whose husband, Thomas Richards, is a druggist of South Pittsburg; Jones C.; Mrs. Dr. Lee, of Bridgeport, Ala.; Raleigh, the present city marshal of South Pittsburg; S. J., a contractor and builder of Memphis, Tenn.; and Mrs. D. C. Deathridge, of South Pittsburg. Those deceased are Mrs. John G. Kelly; Mrs. William Hall; and Patton Beene, who was killed in 1887.

Jones C. Beene was educated in the schools of Jasper, but at the breaking out of the Civil war, he laid aside his text books to fight for the principles he believed to be right, in June 1861, joining Company A, Fourth Tennessee Confederate Infantry1, in which he served until May 1865, participating in the battles of Murfreesboro, Missionary Ridge, Chickamauga, and many others. He then proceeded with Johnston to Atlanta, and during his service was taken prisoner, being confined at Nashville for seven months, and finally released through the intervention of Gen. Frank Cheatham and family friends. He attained to the rank of sergeant major, and proved a most fearless and gallant soldier although quite young.

After the war, Mr. Beene engaged in farming for a short time, and then commenced working for the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad Company in the capacity of station agent. Subsequently, he was employed as a salesman in a store in Texas for four years, and on his return to Marion county was appointed agent for the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad at South Pittsburg, a position he most creditably and satisfactorily filled for the long period of seventeen years. For about twenty years, he filled the office of justice of the peace and was then elected to the state senate, becoming a very active and popular member of that august body. He was appointed a member of most of the important committees, and was elected secretary of many of them, including the one on ways and means. But his most important duty was on the Beene Investigating Committee, which investigated the election for governor, when Evans and Turney were the candidates, deciding in the latter's favor. In the councils of his state he took front rank; the measures he advocated always met with warm and cordial support, and he proved a most able and efficient representative of his district. Mr. Beene has also served as postmaster of South Pittsburg for four years, and mayor of the city for two years. On the 11th of November 1893, he established the "Statesman," which he is still successfully publishing.

Mr. Beene was married October 1, 1865 to Miss Tennie Eugenia Cotnam, who was born in Jackson county, Ala., and is a daughter of Dr. T. T. Cotnam. Nine children blessed this union, namely: Joseph C., an engineer on the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad; Russell O., a clerk in the printing department at Washington, D. C.; Claude T., a resident of Shelbyville; Ida Lee, Lena M., Jones C., Jr. and Annie A., all at home; William G., who died at the age of fourteen years; and an infant, deceased.

Mr. Beene takes an active interest in civic societies and is an honored and prominent member of the 'Ancient Order of United Workmen, the Mystic Circle, the Independent of Odd Fellows, the Knights of Pythias, and the Knights of Honor.' He has always been a stalwart Democrat in politics, and religiously is a member of the Primitive Baptist church, while his wife is a devout Methodist in religious belief.

EPHRAIM WILLIAM PRIGMORE, a leading and representative agriculturist of Marion county, Tenn., has spent all his life there, his birth occurring January 25, 1850. His father, Joseph K. Prigmore, was born March 20, 1815, a son of Ephraim and Margaret (Kelly) Prigmore, who were of French descent. Before the war the father engaged in merchandising near Whitwell, Marion county, but later removed to Oats Landing and turned his attention to farming. From early boyhood, he made his home in Marion county, and was here married, February 20, 1840, to Miss Mary Pryor, who was born March 21, 1818, of Irish descent. They became the parents of eight children, namely: Margaret and Melinda J., both deceased; Louisa A., wife of J. S. Richmond; Ephraim W., of this sketch; James G., who married Laura Stafford and is engaged in merchandising at South Pittsburg, Tenn.; John A., who married Florence Heiskell and lives on a farm adjoining our subject’s; Mary, wife of Robert Richards, who lives near our subject; and Ruth, wife of John Ely, of Moore county, Tenn. Their parents were both sincere and faithful members of the Presbyterian church and died in that faith, the father November 12, 1889, the mother November 6, 1865, being laid to rest in Gotts cemetery, where the remains of their parents were also interred.

Mr. Prigmore, whose name introduces this sketch, obtained his education in the Sam Houston Academy, and when his school days were over he returned to the old homestead, where throughout life he has successfully followed agricultural pursuits. On the 7th of January, 1886, he led to the marriage altar Miss Lizzie Mitchell, who was born December 25, 1853, in Marion county, and is a daughter of Preston and Mary A. (Deakins) Mitchell. Her father was a native of the same county, born November 18, 1819, but the birth of her mother occurred near Dunlap, Sequatchie county, Tenn., September 26, 1826. They were the parents of six children: James A., Lizzie, John F., Mary A., Mattie and Laura E. The mother, who was a worthy member of the Methodist Episcopal church, died August 19, 1873, and was buried at Shiloh. Mr. Mitchell was again married, July 15, 1877, his second wife being Mary J. Hudson. He is a prominent farmer of the Fifth district of Marion county, where he has lived for many years.

To Mr. And Mrs. Prigmore have been born three children, namely: Joe M., who was born March 13, 1890, and died October 23, 1895; Mary A., born June 21, 1892; and Victor E., born March 2, 1894. The parents hold membership in the Methodist Episcopal church, South, and socially Mr. Prigmore is an active and prominent member of the Masonic fraternity. As a Democrat he has been prominently identified with local political affairs, and in 1886 he was triumphantly elected trustee of the county by a large majority, though the county is usually strongly Republican. The fact that he was elected plainly indicates his personal popularity and the confidence and trust reposed in him by his fellow citizens.

THOMAS PATTERSON HALL, whose beautiful home overlooks the Tennessee river, is one of the most popular and highly respected citizens of the Seventh district, Marion county, where he is successfully engaged in general farming and stock raising. He is a native of the county, born eight miles east of Jasper, near Oates Island, August 31, 1840, and is a son of Ignatius and Esther (Kelly) Hall, the former a native of Kentucky, the latter of East Tennessee. When a young man the father came to Marion county, and subsequently married and settled near Oates Island, where he purchased a farm and engaged in agricultural pursuit’s until life’s labors were ended. his wife, who was an earnest and consistent member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, died several years later, and was laid to rest by his side in the Kelly cemetery, near Kelly’s Ferry. In politics he was an old-line Whig and in early days served as a colonel of the militia. Their family consisted of nine children, namely: Nancy, Rebecca, James, Adaline, Mary, Martha, John, William and Thomas P. Besides our subject, Mary is the only one now living.

After attending the common schools for some time, Thomas P. Hall, became a student in the Sam Houston Academy at Jasper, where he completed his literary education. early in life he became thoroughly familiar with agricultural pursuits, and is today one of the most skillful and systematic farmers of his district. During the war his sympathies were with the Confederacy, and he was a volunteer in the Confederate army. Just after the war he embarked in merchandising at Shellmound, and for several years, off and on, he was interested in that business. He was agent for the N. & C. R. R. at Shellmound for quite a while. About a year and a half ago he took charge of the Pierson tanyard in Dade county, Ga., and is still conducting it in connection with his farm work. As a business man he has been eminently successful, and his upright, honorable course in life commends him to the confidence and esteem of all. His religious views are in accordance with the teachings of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, but he holds membership with no religious organization. he is a Master Mason, belonging to the lodge at Jasper, and is a Democrat in politics. On an independent ticket he was elected sheriff of Marion county, receiving 197 more votes than both of his competitors - one a Republican, the other a Democrat. In that position he served for one term with credit to himself and to the general satisfaction of the general public. Mr. Hall’s household consists of himself, his sister Mary, who acts as housekeeper, and their niece, Miss Carrie Love, whose parents are deceased. The family have many warm friends throughout the community.

MAJOR WILLIAM J. KELLY ---- There are few men in the entire South who have taken a more important part in the substantial development and improvement of that section of the country than Major Kelly, who in his work as a civil engineer has largely advanced the welfare, not only of this native state, but of many other of the southern states. Jasper claims him among her valued citizens and has honored him with public office, at the same time holding him in the highest respect for his many sterling characteristics.

The Major was born near Jasper, May 8, 1823, a son of Col. John and Nancy (Mayo) Kelly. His grandfather, Alexander Kelly, was born in County Armagh, Ireland, and during his infancy was brought to America by his parents.. He served as a colonel either in one of the Indian wars or the war of the Revolution. After his son John located in the Sequatchie valley, he removed thither and was accidentally drowned in the Sequatchie river near Dunlap.

Col. John Kelly was born in Greenbrier, Va., June 2, 1779, and was married to Nancy Mayo, a native of North Carolina, and of Scotch-Irish descent. The marriage was celebrated in Monroe county, Tenn., and in 1808 they came down the Tennessee river to Lowry’s Landing, in Marion county, at which time the Indians were still in possession of this part of the valley. They located on land that is now owned by the Lamb family in Bledsoe county, there remaining until 1820, when they took up their residence near Jasper, Marion county. In 1838, they removed to Kelly’s Ferry on the Tennessee river, where the father spent the residue of his days. In 1826 he was granted a charter by the state to build a turnpike road to Ross’ Landing, and at the same time he constructed the first bridge across the Sequatchie river. He was the first to advocate the building of a road around Lookout Mountain, the same to follow the route which is now used by the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad. He made a bid to build that road if the state would give him control of it for a term of fifty years, but as some one else put in a lower bid he did not get the contract. He was a most progressive and public-spirited man, always advocating and supporting some measure that would develop the country and add to the general prosperity. He was government contractor to remove obstructions in the Tennessee river. He was a man of considerable means and owned a large number of slaves, but instead of being a source of income for him his endeavor to provide for their best interest made their labor more of an expense than a source of profit. In politics he was a Whig, was a member of the constitutional convention of 1834, and served for a time as circuit clerk and in other public offices. He aided in the organization of Olive Branch lodge, F. & A. M. at Jasper, and held to the religious faith of the Presbyterian church, while his wife was a member of the Methodist church. His name is indissolubly connected with the best development of the state, and for many years he was one of the most important factors in the public life of this section of Tennessee. He died November 26, 1845, and his wife passed away October 14, 1857, at the age of eighty years. They were parents of thirteen children, namely: Esther, Nancy, Alexander, Polly, Adaline and Thomas, twins, Martha and Jane, twins, Valentine, James, Margaret, William and one who died in infancy.

Major William Kelly is now the only survivor of the family. He was educated in the Sam Houston Academy at Jasper, the academy at Franklin, Ala., and under the private instruction of Rev. James Gamble of La Fayette, Ga., taking special interest in the study of mathematics in the last named place. After leaving school he read medicine for two years and the accepted a position as teacher at Cedar Springs, Tenn. Later he became a member of the faculty of the academy in Pikeville, and then taught for a number of terms in the Sam Houston Academy at Jasper, which was erected by his father, the Major himself carrying brick for the structure.

In 1852 Major Kelly began working as a civil engineer on the survey for the Rome & Columbus Railroad from Chattanooga through La Fayette, Ga., to the Alabama state line. On the completion of that labor he went to Gadsden, where he began the survey of the Will’s Valley Railroad along the Coosa river, now known as the Alabama & Great Southern road. Entering the employ of the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad Company he began working at Stevenson, Ala., engineering it’s construction. In 1867 he built the bridge across the Tennessee river to replace the one which had been washed away by a freshet and accomplished this in such a remarkably short time that the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad made him a present of five hundred dollars; the Bridge Company gave him a gun and a two-hundred-and-seventy-five-dollar watch. Soon afterward he built the Jasper branch of the same road and made the survey to Pikeville. He then made a survey for the Cincinnati Southern railroad from Dunlap, Tenn., to the Kentucky line. By way of Sparta, and from Rockwood, Tenn., to Big Creek Gap, in Claiborne county, Tenn., also opened coal mines near Boyd’s Switch in Alabama and built five miles of railroad from the main line to the foot of the mountain and the incline road to the mine. This was followed by the construction of the incline at Whitwell, which is a marvelous piece of engineering, winning high commendation from those best able to judge of such work. In the meantime he constructed the railroad from Jasper to Victoria and for a time was superintendent of this line.

When the convention was held in Chattanooga to petition Congress to do away with the obstructions in the Tennessee river at Muscle’s Shoals, major Kelly, General Wilder and Captain Byrd were selected to compose the committee on resolutions and they wrote the petition which was adopted by the convention and presented to Congress. The result of this was the construction of the canal around the shoals, thus opening up navigation for many miles toward the head of the Tennessee river. The Major’s next work was on the Birmingham & Columbus railroad, followed by a survey from Columbus, Miss., to Decatur, Ala., connecting the Tennessee and the Tombigbee rivers. He opened the Corono coal mines in Alabama, made the survey from Kimball to the Beaver creek coal fields in the lower part of Cumberland county, Tenn., and when the town of Kimball was laid out he was the chief engineer. In 1876 major Kelly made for the Centennial at Philadelphia a map 17 X 14 feet showing the mineral district around Chattanooga, ninety-four miles east and west of that city and seventy-four miles north and south. This map was afterward exhibited at Paris and Vienna and was the means of bringing to the state millions of dollars which has been invested in the development of this mineral district. This map was also exhibited at the Nashville Centennial and now hangs in the Chamber of Commerce at Chattanooga.

It would be impossible to determine the far-reaching influences and benefits of Major Kelly’s life work. There is probably no industry or line of business that has not been benefited thereby and mining and commerce particularly have been greatly advanced through his labors. He has opened up to civilization various districts of this country, whither men have gone and in the development of the natural resources have secured wealth and comfort. He who places before his fellowmen the means of personal achievement and success may well be termed a benefactor of his race and such indeed is major Kelly. His more direct duties of citizenship, too, have also been ever faithfully performed. During the Civil war he entered the Federal service in the engineering department and under the authority of General Thomas and Grant he constructed the military warehouse and depots at Bridgeport and other points, continuing in the service until December 31, 1863. In 1869, 1870 and 1871 he was a prominent member of the state legislature and served on the railroad committee. During that time he was instrumental in securing the defeat of Andrew Johnson, who was a candidate for the United States senate. He also introduced into the legislature and secured the passage of the bill prohibiting the sale and giving away of liquor on election days, His political support is given the Republican party.

On the 20th of January, 1846, Major Kelly married Sarah Ann Hoge, who was born near Jasper, October 28, 1826, and died January 2, 1897. She was a daughter of John Hoge, a native of Virginia. Major and Mrs. Kelly became the parents of seven children, four of whom are now living: J. Crittenden, a farmer residing near his father; David Corry, a farmer and civil engineer of the same neighborhood; Alexander Scott, also a civil engineer and agriculturist; and Emma J., who is living with her father. The Major and his family are members of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, in which he has held the office of deacon. There are few men whose lives have been more eminently useful and while he is modest and unassuming in manner it is but just to say of Major Kelly that his labors have been of great benefit to his fellowmen and that he is therefore deserving of their highest gratitude and regard.

First, let me say that your web page is awesome! I toured a little and can't wait to sit down and get into it and digest all the info.
Here's my line starting with Erasmus:

1. Erasmus (b. 1801 in Overton Co, TN supposedly to Walter and Jane Alley from VA; d. 1878 in Marion Co., TN) m. Mary Polly Kelly. They produced 12 children.
2. Leaven Alley (b. May 10, 1829 in Marion Co., TN; d. March 14, 1873 in Lincoln Co. TN. Buried in Diana Cemetery in Diana, TN. [Just found grave this past weekend. Still celebrating b/c I've been looking for it forever.]) m. Amanda Bybee (b. Nov. 17, 1833 in Barron Co. KY. ; d. March 24, 1913, Warren Co., TN) Sept. 9, 1868. They had 2 sons.
3. Clifford Verhayden Alley (b. Sept. 12, 1869 in Marion Co., TN; d. Feb. 7, 1945 in Warren Co. TN.)
m. Margaret Delena Barnes Hendricks (b. July 15, 1883 Warren Co., TN; d. July 17, 1942 by suicide in Warren Co., TN) Sept. 2, 1900. They had 8 children.
4. Leve G. Alley (b. July 26, 1903 in Warren Co., TN; d. May 16, 1981 in Madison Co., AL) m. Bessie Mauren Brien (b. Dec. 18, 1905 in Davidson Co., TN; d. Sept. 3, 1981 in Jonesboro, AR) April 9, 1922. They had 3 children.
5. Judith Lynn Alley Russell (b. Dec. 25, 1942 in Hamilton Co., TN) m. Joe Lavough Russell b. August 1, 1943 in Haywood Co., TN) March 22, 1964. They have 3 children and 4 grandboys who are totally terrific.

So, that's a quick summary of the line from Polly to me. In 1995, at the beginning of the Tennessee Centennial celebration , I applied for the "First Family of Tennessee" status using Alexander Kelly. I have my certificate as being a member of the founding fathers of our great state. Did you do that? In your notes on Alexander, I didn't see any mention of his being a charter trustee of Bount College which later became the University of Tennessee. I honestly mean it when I tell my friends that my blood runs orange! =-)

I tried to send you a more in-depth family lineup from the Family Tree Maker program but can't seem to conquer it yet.

DUDLEY C. PECK, deceased, was for many years connected with the business interests of Marion county, and his well-spent life won him high regard. He was born in Jefferson county, Tenn., on the 24th of December, 1827, a son of Henry Peck, who resided on Mossy creek, in that county. The father was a farmer by occupation, and in addition to agricultural pursuits operated a carding machine and cotton gin. At his death Jefferson county lost one of its worthy citizens. Dudley C. Peck was reared in his parents’ home and after attaining his majority went to Knoxville, Tenn., where he secured a situation as bookkeeper in a warehouse. He occupied that position for several years and then became clerk on a steamer in the Tennessee river. While thus engaged he formed the acquaintance of Miss Nancy Mayo Kelly, a daughter of Alexander Kelly, and a representative of one of the most prominent and honored families of Marion county. On the 27th of January 1853, was celebrated the marriage which united the destinies of these young people, and they began their domestic life on the old Oates homestead. Mrs. Peck was born May 20, 1830 in Marion county, and to her husband she proved a faithful companion and helpmeet.

In addition to agricultural pursuits, Mr. Peck devoted his energies to selling goods, and also conducted the warehouse at Oates Landing. Industry and enterprise were numbered among his chief characteristics and his well directed efforts brought him a very comfortable competence. In addition to the labors of private life he acceptably discharged the duties of a member of the county court, and did all in his power to promote the welfare and advance the best interests of the community in which he lived. He gave his political support to the Democracy, socially was connected with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and in religious faith was identified with the Cumberland Presbyterians, holding membership in the church of that denomination in Ebenezer. He passed away December 13, 1861, when in the prime of life, and his loss was deeply mourned by many friends as well as his immediate family, for he was a man of sterling worth, whose fidelity to every trust reposed in him gained him the confidence and good will of all.

Mr. And Mrs. Peck had a family of four children: Nancy E., wife of John C. Turner, a farmer residing with Mrs. Peck; Henry A., a representative agriculturist living in the same neighborhood, who served as tax assessor of Marion county for four years, and married Eugenie Hicks, a native of Virginia; Sallie A., at home; and Dudley C., who also resides with his mother and is a member of the county court. Mrs. Peck and all her children are members of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, and the family is one of prominence in the community, enjoying the hospitality of the best homes in this section of Marion county.

JOHN CRITTENDEN KELLY occupies a prominent place as a well-to-do and progressive member of the farming community of Marion county, Tenn. He has spent the greater part of his life in the community, and has been one of the potent factors in the business and political history of the county. He was born on the farm he now makes his home, April 6, 1848, a son of William J. Kelly, whose sketch appears on another page of this volume.

Mr. Kelly spent his school days at the Winchester branch of the Sewanee University, and also at the Sam Houston Academy at Jasper, and in both institutions he made a specialty of mathematics. Upon leaving school he helped his father on the farm for a time, and then helped in the construction of the Jasper branch of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis railroad, working in the capacity of bookkeeper and overseer about one year. In 1884 he moved to his father’s old home place, three miles east of Jasper, and has since made that his home. He was clerk of the circuit court of Marion county for four years, being elected in 1882,

In August, 1867, our subject was united in marriage with Miss Laura Ann Turner, daughter of Washington Turner, who was born in South Pittsburg, Marion county, Tenn, in July 1852. To this union have been born seven children, six of whom are living, and of whom we have the following record: Charles W., died in April 1887, at the age of eighteen years; Sarah Ann, wife of T. R. Hockworth, a school teacher at South Pittsburg, Tenn.; William Atwood is living with his parents; Mary Etta, wife of Andrew Pryor, a mill owner and operator living above Jasper; Melville Clyde, a miller, is living with his parents; Scott P. and Hershel Corry are still making their home with their parents.

WASHINGTON PRYOR, one of Marion county’s most extensive land owners, and a very prominent farmer and stock raiser, living in the Seventh district, near the city of Jasper, was born nine miles north of that city, November 14, 1824, a son of Green H. And Obedience (Holloway) Pryor, and Green H. was a son of Matthew Pryor.

Matthew Pryor, the grandfather of our subject, and his wife were both born in North Carolina, and he was a soldier in the Revolutionary war. He moved with his family to Tennessee in an early day and settled on a farm in Roane county, and later moved to the Sequatchie valley, settled on a farm and died near Whitwell. Green H. Pryor, our subject’s father, was a farmer and stock trader by occupation, and died June 2, 1862, and his wife died a few years before. She was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church. They were the parents of a family of twelve children, viz: Jackson, who is living in Jasper, Tenn.; Sampson, deceased; Mary, deceased; William, a farmer living near Whitwell; John, deceased; Washington, the subject of this sketch; Preston, who died while young; Anderson, deceased; Jeremiah, deceased; Benjamin F., deceased; Eliza, widow of I. P. Alexander, is living with her brother Jackson, in Jasper; and Caroline, deceased.

Washington Pryor, the subject of this sketch, was educated in the valley, in the public schools of the district in which his boyhood was spent, and after completing his course of study engaged in farming. At the breaking out of the war with Mexico, he enlisted as a private at Chattanooga, and went with the command to Memphis on flatboats, and from thence to Brazos Island, Camargo, Tampico, and to Vera Cruz in sailing vessels. He participated in the battle at the last named place, and then moved toward the city of Mexico, taking part in the battle of Cerro Gordo. He was discharged and returned to his home in the year 1847, having served in Haskal’s regiment, under Capt. William J. Standefer.

After the close of the was Mr. Pryor returned to his home and began farming and selling goods at Oates Landing. In 1850 he formed a partnership with Mr. Prigmore, and engaged in business for a time under the firm name of Pryor, Prigmore & Co. Our subject then bought out his partner and continued the store alone for several years, and also sold goods in Jasper until the breaking out of the Civil war. During this time he continued his farming operations in connection with his mercantile interests. He lost very heavily by the war, as the soldiers on both sides took his horses, mules, cattle, sheep, hogs and grain, and also robbed his store, burned his fences and plundered his house, and he also lost twenty-four slaves, and was left with nothing but his land. In 1866 he moved to Jasper and stayed one year, and then moved back to his farm near Oates Landing. In 1875 he continued his selling goods at that place, but after a few years he sold out and since has devoted his attention to farming and dealing in stock.

Mr. Pryor has been married three times, first to Miss Ruth Kelly, July 14, 1848, and to this union two children were born, viz: Sarah G., wife of Samuel Bennett, a farmer near Oates Landing; and William A., deceased. Mrs. Pryor died December 25, 1855, and in February, 1858, our subject was united in marriage to Miss Jane Reed. She died in 1871, and Mr. Pryor was married February 22, 1872, to Miss Mary A. Beene, who was born in Marion county, Tenn., August 16, 1838, daughter of O. R. and Martha (Roulston) Beene. Her grandparents were pioneers of Tennessee. Her grandfather Col. Joseph Roulston, and his father published the first newspaper published in Tennessee.

HON. WILLIAM PRYOR, an honored resident and a wealthy and prominent farmer of Marion county, whose home is situated in the Fifteenth district, near Whitwell, was born in Marion county, February 27, 1821, a son of Green H. And Obedience (Halloway) Pryor. Green H. Was a son of Matthew and (Miss Neely) Pryor.

Matthew Pryor, the grandfather of our subject, was a soldier in the Revolutionary war, and drew a pension while he lived for his services. He moved with his family to Tennessee in an early day and settled on a farm in Roane county, and later moved to Marion county, settled on a farm in the valley, and died near Whitwell. Green H. Pryor, our subject’s father, was a farmer and stock trader by occupation, and died June 2, 1862, and his wife died a few years before. She was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church. They were the parents of twelve children, viz: Jackson, who is living in Jasper, Tenn.; Sampson, deceased; Mary, deceased; William, the subject of this sketch; John, deceased; Washington, a farmer and stock raiser living in the Seventh district, Marion county; Preston, who died while young; Anderson, deceased; Jeremiah, deceased; Benjamin F., deceased; Eliza, widow of I. P. Alexander, is living with her brother Jackson in Jasper; and Caroline, deceased.

William Pryor, the subject of this sketch, was educated in the public schools of the Sequatchie valley, and afterward taught school for a few terms. He was married February 27, 1845 to Miss Amanda Prigmore, who was born June 22, 1822, in Marion county Tenn., a daughter of Ephraim and Margaret (Kelly) Prigmore. Her father was born in Pennsylvania, and went to Tennessee when a young man and died there about the year 1844. His wife died in 1864. They were the parents of a family of ten children, all of whom are now dead except Mrs. Pryor, and whose names in the order of their birth were as follows: James O., Anna, Joseph K., Eliza, Malinda, Amanda, Keziah M., Nancy K., Margaret D. And Ephraim L.

After his marriage our subject settled near the location of his present home, in the Fifteenth district, in a little cabin. In the fall of the same year he moved to Battle Creek, in the Tenth district, bought a farm there and made that his home two years. He then sold out and moved to Little Sequatchie Valley, in the Fourth district, bought a farm and lived there six years. This farm he traded to his father for the one he now owns and occupies, at once moved to it and has since made that his home. The farm originally comprised about one thousand acres, but Mr. Pryor has divided with his children and has also sold a part, and he now has scarcely five hundred acres. He deals extensively in cattle and hogs, and both in his agricultural and stock raising business he has been eminently successful. A few years ago he erected a saw and planing mill, and for several years did a large and profitable business. Later he added to it a cabinet factory, and he and his sons control the entire plant.

Mr. Pryor is also an old soldier, having joined the Union army in 1864, enlisting in Company C., Sixth Regiment of Tennessee Mounted infantry, and was mustered in at Hamilton county, Tenn. He was stationed in Hamilton county for some time, and was then made provost marshal. He also acted as a scout, and was in a great many skirmishes, but participated in none of the regular battles. He was at Dalton, Ga., Resaca, Ga., and at Nashville, Tenn., and was there mustered out June 30, 1865. Politically he is a Republican, and by that party has three times been elected justice of the peace and once a member of the legislature.

Our subject and Mrs. Pryor are the parents of a family of three children, of whom we have the following record: Mary A., born February 27, 1846, is the wife of William B. Hilliard, living on a part of Mr. Pryor’s original farm. To them have been born seven children, five of whom are living, viz: Carry A., Alexander W., James G. (deceased), Edgar L., Luther W. (deceased), Anna and Myrtle. The second child, Ephraim G. H., who was born August 29, 1849, lives not far from his father’s home, married Miss Icy Foster, and four children - Hallie, William, Dora A. And Samuel L. - have been born to them. The third child, Samuel L., was born October 26, 1852, and is also living in this district. He married Miss Lucy Williamson, and six children have been born to them, five of whom are still living: Maude E., Mary A., Milton, William (deceased), John and Eva.

Hello Wayne,
I noticed that my brothers and sisters were listed correctly on your website but I couldn't find me.  Finally I saw that my name was spelled incorrectly as "Eyonne".  My correct name is Marilynn Yvonne McGee McCoy, daughter of Dorothy Lee Mullis McGee and John Perry McGee, Sr., date of birth 6/16/1937 not 6/19/1937.  I see several references to my father who recently died on January 5, 2004.  I have verified that all of my brothers and sisters birthdates are correct.
Thank you for keeping this website.  I found it to be very interesting but saw that many extended family members are missing.  Please let me know if I can help you.

352. Mary N. Triplett, “My Hoge/Hogue Branch and It’s Related Clans,”, 1/22/2005.
Most books and records record Agnes Crawford as his first wife and Nancy Griffiths as his second wife. However, I, along with some other current Hoge/Hogue family researchers believe that his will proves otherwise. His will has been found in several places but most noticeably in the Frederick County, Virginia Will Book pages 90 and 92.
It states thus: Wife: Agnus Hoge, Children: Moses, James, Solomon, John, Edward (deceased), Martha Allen, Mary Evans, Barbara Reed. Grand children: Moses and Edwards, sons of Edward, deceased.
"Being somewhat ailing in body to wife, negro Jude beside her thirds. Personal estate to be appraised except the still; remainder to children as wife decides. If she marries, all but widow's thirds to be divided , half to son Moses, quarter to son James, quarter to daughter Martha Allen. To grandsons Moses and Edward Hoge, land in survey made by Thomas Buck, 186 acres Moses to enjoy whole until his brother Edward is 21. If one dies, survivor to have whole. Son Solomon Hoge to have all the rest of the land, conditioned on his payment of legacies; to John Hoge, son, to Mary Evans, to Barbara Reed - 5 shellings if they come to demand it; to son James, 20 pounds; to daughter Martha Allen, 15 pounds. Wife and Solomon to share plantation as outlined, EXR: wife Agnes Hoge. Witnesses: John Setzer, Phillip Barr, Mary Setzer. SEC: Peter Senseney - John Setzer. Bond of 2000 pounds."
Besides the children of Nancy are much older than the children of Agnes.

Hi Wayne,
I enjoyed talking with you last night and I'm glad you called.  I have been enjoying your website since we talked.  
I had to go to Kingstree today to take care of some things related to Mom's estate, and I also went to visit her grave.  I walked around the church cemetary and wrote down the information I found for each of my relatives. 
I've been viewing the Person Sheets and other pages on the site to see if I may have found any information you don't already have.  I found a few things, and I will list them here if you'd like to use them:  (I will underline any new information)
I will begin with my Great-grandfather, John Wade Hamilton Sauls.  Born 11/8/1876; died 4/17/1964.
My Grandfather, John E. Sauls.  His middle name was "Evander";  born 12/24/1905;  died 9/16/1974.  
His wife, Eva McGee.  Born 11/11/1909;  died 6/10/1983.
Their son, Barnie R.   Born in 1926;  died in 1995. (shown as Barney on Site)
Barnie's Person Sheet shows Unmarried, but he was married.  His wife's name was Allene B. (I do not know her maiden name).  Born in 1928;  died in 2002. 
Their daughter, Reba.  I see you have already updated everything for my Mom... Thank you.  Mom's first husband, Robert E. (Bob) Thornhill:  Born 9/17/1921:  died 3/28/1973.
Her second husband, Robert G. Keefe, Sr.:  Born 5/28/1920;  died 11/30/1991.
Their son, Jerroll.  I will try to find more information, but I know he was married and they had several children. 
Their son, John.  His middle name was "Earl", and he was called "John Earl".   Born 4/28/1932;  died in 2006.  John Earl was married twice, his first wife's name was Noreen (maiden name unknown).  John Earl and Noreen had six children:
John Earl Jr.,  Kary,  Clay,  Wade,  Ryan, and Patricia.
His second wife's name was Maryann V.  (maiden name unknown)  Born 11/20/1942;  died 6/29/2002.
Their daughter, Josephine (Jo).  Her husband's name was Ben R. Eason.  He just died a few months ago.
My Grandfather's brother:  J.W. Sauls
I believe I said last night that J.W. Sauls, my Grandfather's brother, was John Wade Sauls, Jr.   I was wrong.   On his headstone is: "Joe Willard Sauls"  born 11/8/1917, died 10/5/1985.  On his Person Sheet, his name is shown as "J. Wade Sauls".
His wife's name was "Annie Dell McGee" instead of "Anna Dell McGee".   She was born 12/17/1920, died 3/15/2000.  On her Person Sheet under Notes, you have "Sister of Reba Sauls".  She was actually the sister of Eva McGee (my Grandmother).
Their son, Luther.  Born 9/17/1939;  died 10/26/1990.
My Grandfather's sister:  Lillie Maud Sauls
Born 9/10/1915;  died 5/23/1999
First husband was Edward Lewis Baylor.  Born 10/3/1915;  died 10/5/1946.
Lillie Maud and Edward Baylor had one child:  Jean.  Born 11/26/1935;  died 5/19/1978.
Second husband was Manuel H. Ard.   Born 02/27/1905;  died 11/20/1956.
Lillie Maud and Manuel Ard had one child:  Judy. 
Mottie Alton McGee    Born 11/5/1911;  died 2/28/1975
(brother of Eva McGee Sauls and Annie Dell McGee Sauls)
His wife:  Viola Player    Born  4/19/1914;  died 4/4/1975
That's all I have.   I hope some of it will be useful.
Take care.

John Hart Crenshaw (1905)
    JOHN HART CRENSHAW, the son of William Crenshaw and Elizabeth Hart, the daughter of John Hart of New Jersey, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, was born in the southern part of North Carolina on Nov. 19, 1797. His parents moved to New Madrid, Mo., in 1809, and in the earthquake of 1811 their home was ruined. They then removed to Gallatin County, Ill., and settled on Eagle Creek, not far from the salt wells called the "Half Mocn." His father died soon after coming to Gallatin County, leaving his mother and seven children.
    John, being among the oldest children, went to the salt works and began drawing water for the company who were making salt. He continued in this business until after he married Miss Sina Taylor in 18l7. He went to housekeeping in the "Half Moon," and in a few years rented the wells from the state and began to make salt, which industry he followed for many years. He bought a large body of land near Equality, and moved his salt works to his own land, which was heavily timbered. He used the wood in the salt works, and in that way cleared his land. When the production of salt became unprofitable, he turned to farming, which he continued to follow until his death, Dec. 4, 1871.
    He and his wife were members of the Methodist Episcopal church. His wife died Sept. 14, 1881, at the age of eighty-two years. They had ten children, five of whom lived to maturity, viz.: Mary, widow of John E. Hall; Elizabeth, widow of Gen. M. K. Lawler; William T., deceased; Margaret, who married Charles Lanphier, of Springfield, both now deceased; and Julia, widow of James Foster, a native of Bledsoe County, Tenn.
    He was born Dec. 14, 1827. On arriving at man's estate he became a dealer in live stock. This business made it necessary for him to make frequent trips to the North, and on one of these occasions he formed the acquaintance of Mrs. Julia A. Morris, nee Crenshaw, to whom he was united in marriage on April 6, 1858. From that time until the commencement of the Civil War he followed farming on what is now known as the old Crenshaw place.
    At the beginning of the war he enlisted in the First Illinois cavalry and was made captain of his company. In September, 1861, he was captured at Lexington, Mo., and soon afterward was paroled. He returned home while on parole and never rejoined his command. He continued agricultural pursuits on the farm where his widow still lives until his death on Dec. 16, 1875. They had four children, three of whom died in infancy. Edward, their youngest son, lives on the old home place with his mother. He married Miss Mary Lamb, of St. Louis, and they have seven children.
    1905. Memoirs of the Lower Ohio Valley . Madison, Wis.: Federal Publishing Company. 2:373-374.

NOTE: Recent research by Crenshaw genealogists out East has confirmed that Elizabeth Hart is the not the daughter of the John Hart who signed the Declaration of Independence. Instead, she is the daughter of a John Hart of North Carolina who served as an officer during the Revolutionary War. The Signer story is an old one in the family. How it developed is not clear. — Jon Musgrave.

Carroll. Jr. passed away this morning at 2 AM from congestive heart failure.  The fluid had invaded his body totally and he was in a lot of pain.  We think the funeral home is Williams Funeral Home in Columbia, TN.  We are not going to be able to go - the trip would be too much for Tommy with his heart disease.  He is also suffering from back pain & is in rehab.  Please e-mail everyone as you have all the addresses. 
Ruthie is wondering how your daughter-in-law is doing.  If you'll just let me know and I'll pass it on.  We are thinking of you in this matter and hope she is improving.  Take care.

I did print this with all the stuff in it (all 25 pages). My daughter Jennifer Lee
is listed as Jennifer Dabbs, but she is not a Dabbs, she is a Wollaber, like her
brother and sister.. Her father is listed as Lymon, and it is spelled Lyman. Also,
my middle name is Foster. My brother Ted is named Theodore Mitchell, and my sister
Holly's name is Holliston Lee. Just thought I would let you know, as this seems like
a very large project, and I am sure it is hard to not make any mistakes! I think
you have done a fine. job. Thanks, Marian Dabbs

An ancient government of France was called Poitou. It goes back to the time of the Visigoths. The chief Poitevin cities were Poitiers, Chatallerault and Niort. Poitiers is the capital of_the department of vie ' nne, France. There are different spellings of this name _ Poitevin, Poitevint, Poitevent, Portevine and Portavint.

JACQUES POITEVIN, who was probably born around 1600, is the earliest known of this family. He married JEANNE MODEMEN and they had ANTOINE POITEVIN, who was born in Orsemont, province of Gaule, France. Antoine was the second husband of GABRIELLE BEROU. Gabrielle was the daughter of EUTROPE BEROU of Ormey, Bause, France, and ANDREE LE PROU. Their children were ? Berou who married Jean Cailleau, also of Ormy, ? Berou who married Daniel Cailleau of Aufferville, France, and GABRIELLE BEROU who first married Lubin Maulard with whom she had Suzanne Maulard. Suzanne married Daniel Trezevant, from Authon en Percho, France, the son of Theodore Trezevant and Susan Menou. Suzanne and Daniel had Daniel, Matthew, and Susana Trezevant. Suzanne, Daniel and their children migrated to the Orange Quarter of South Carolina, near Charleston.

Antoine Poitevin, Jr., born in Maintenon, France. He and Daniel Trezevant, were merchants there in 1669.

I looked at my files today. I've included an interesting document on the
"Trezevant Claim" This was one of the very first U.S. Supreme Court cases
and was a prime mover in the passing of the eleventh admendment.
The second file is copy of a listing about John Farquhar.

John's and Robert's mother was Elizabeth CHALMERS according to several
entries concerning the family from Scottish sources. I will send you more
later. I have a PDF file that has the source citations and the original text
from a document dated 1861. I was going to send it but I have problems with
pdf files on my home network. I thought I had converted it to a txt file but
I just got an empty text doc. Will try again.

508. Wiltshire Gov., “Thumbnail History,”, 11/28/2004.

In 1825 a short lived industrial venture began with the building of a cloth factory at the southern end of Fonthill Lake. There was a 6-storey block, a 5-storey factory with 3 water wheels, a drying house and a dyehouse. The buildings were erected by the eccentric Mr Farquhar, a retired gunpowder maker, and completed by 1827 with a house and 24 cottages. The idea was to weave a superfine woollen cloth and 200 people, mainly from Gloucestershire, were employed. Despite an abundant supply of water the venture failed, probably as this was a remote area, with poor communications and a factory could not compete with the steam powered ones of western Wiltshire that were sited near canals. The machinery was sold in 1830 and the buildings demolished between 1838 and 1886.

That upon examining the return of the Jury of inquest and from information received respecting debts due to the said James Taylor, as well as estimating the present crop, the said Estate amounts to ner $90,000. That is appears from schedule B that there is due by the Estate to creditors of various degrees at least 12,500 pounds. That here are 95 Negroes including 60 working hands belonging to the Estate, which from information received from John Taylor, the Trustee lately apointed, are not more than sufficient to cultivate the upper Plantation of the said James Taylor on the Congaree River and to attend the Mills of the Estate. It appears necessary therefore in order to extricate the Estate from the large demands against it and to injure the yearly production as little as possible to sell all the lands except the upper Plantation (p. 68) on Congaree River and the Mill tract with the Mansion House thereon. The Commission therefore recommends that an order be made directing John Taylor and Keating Simonds, the Trustees appointed, to sell at Public Sale the real Estate of the said James Taylor except the two tracts above mentioned, reserving a power in the said Trustees of bidding in any part which they think does not sell to nearly its value.

Found your website/ email addresses on

I a descendant for John Farquhar Trezevant. So your posts about Robert
Farquhar/ John Edward. I've been researching this branch too. Could you
give me your descent lineage? I am researching several Trezevants. My line
is as follows:

John Farquhar Trezevant
Charles Simmons Trezevant
Mary Louise Trezevant married Thomas Douglas Sloan
Bessie Will Sloan married James Roger Irvin
Bessie and James are my maternal grandparents

I am especially interested in Charles Simmons brothers and sisters.

Since you are a Texan- did you know James Peter [sometimes listed as Peter
James] Trezevant was a hero of the Texas Revolution. He was a member of the
Georgia Battalion under Col. Fanin. His unit surrendered near Goliad. He had
become separated from his unit in the swamps and escaped massacre. He and
other survivors made their way to Gen Houston's Army.
According to the Samuel G. Hardaway letter- he and the other survivors
participated in the Battle of San Jacinto. He is not listed as an official
participant...yet - Hardaway was added as a participant years later-

I also have a copy of a memoir from his sister- Charlotte Trezevant
Gignilliat written when she was an old woman- it collaborates the above.

From your Trezevant names, it appears you are not related from this branch.
I have other Trezevant information that may be of interest. Hope to hear
from you soon

527. Robert Aldrich, “Hussey/ Monteih Families,” 3/20/2004.
Galloway Montieth's wife, Mary S. Hussey, was the daughter of Capt.
Brian Hussey and Rebecca Swain. Brian Hussey was the son of Edward
Hussey and Marcy unknown ( thought to be an Edmundson).
Edward Hussey was the brother of Simeon Hussey. Both of these
are thought to be the sons of Michael Hussey and Margaret Shields of
Maryland, about 1735. I am descendant of Simeon Hussey through
a son, Edward Hussey who also came to SC from NC. This Edward
had a brother named Shields Hussey, a son named Shields Hussey and
several descendants thereafter named Shields Hussey.
My great grandmother was Ann Hussey, daughter of John M. Hussey.
John had a brother, Shields Hussey, who died in 1857. John and
Shields had brothers Edward L. Hussey and Simeon Albert Hussey.
There father was Simeon Hussey and the mother was Ann C. Moorer.
I have been trying to trace Brian Hussey's brother, John Edward Hussey
from papers in the Charleston County Court House. As John Edward
Hussey never lived in SC, there seems to be some very important papers
on yet another John Edward Hussey and a sister, Margaret Kettleband
Hussey who were raised by John Edward, Sr., but were not his children
as some would believe. These were grandchildren of Brian Hussey and
the children of a desceased son, John Hussey.
I have found all the signatures of the children of Brian Hussey and Rebecca
Swain Hussey on document in the Charleston Court House, ca. 1845.
There were more children than Cindy Taylor or others have posted.

Will write more soon,

Cousin Robert

According to the family tree I have John Farquhar m Jean Christie. Their children are Jean b 1745 John 1751 - 1826 Robert b 1766 and Anne b 1773. My ancestor is Jean.
I have a long article from the Dictionary of National Biography about John He went to India as a cadet but was wounded badly. He had a practial knowledge of chemistry This led to an improvement in the standard of gunpowder and as a result he made a fortune. In middle life he returned to England, a rather eccentric person. In 1822 he purchased Fonthill Abbey from William Beckford and lived there until the Tower collapsed in 1822.He never married and when he died suddenly in 1826 he left no will. His fortune of one and a half million pounds was divided among his seven nephews and nieces, one of whom was my greatgrandmother Lillias McHardy( nee Aitken) who came to New Zealand in 1849.
I must admit I have some doubts as to whether this John and your Robert are from the same family
537. Michael Parkinson, “ Re: Farquhars of Bilbo, Crimond, Aberdeen.,” 1/20/2007.
Dear Wayne, Thanks for your email. I am descended from John Farquhar Fraser, a Cambridge-educated barrister, subsequently a circuit judge, who was the nephew of John Farquhar the millionaire. Fraser was the son of Robert Fraser, of Inverness and his wife (whose name I do not know). As far as I know, my barrister ancestor had one sister, who married Sir William Pole, a Devonshire grandee (presumably he had an eye on her uncle's cash!) and had issue.
I have researched John Farquhar to a certain extent, and he was a most interesting man, thought at the time to be eccentric, but looks remarkably modern in his views and attitudes. He was clearly a remarkably intelligent man. My family diary for 1826 records his death and the court case over his will (or lack of it). Eventually the seven nephews and neices inherited, including Elizabeth T, John Farquhar Fraser and his sister, and four Mortimers. I know nothing of the Mortimers, except that a meeting took place in George Mortimer's house in York Terrace, in London about the missing will. My diary states that they were lucky in that the Farquhar brothers' father was an Episcopalian, so records could be found to prove descent. It states that old man Farquhar and his wife sheltered The Young Pretender when he was on the run after Culloden in 1745, and was wounded in an affray with English soldiers. Certainly there was no love of the English, judging by the SC brother, who lent cash to the Patriot cause (but I just wonder if he didn't lend money to the other side as would certainly be in keeping with the nabob who made a million in India!).
Well that's enough for now. Michael.

July  10th John Morris is still sick, but no hopes of his dying very soon — Mother says he is too contrary to die — He lays here and curses and quarrels from morning till night = he looks like the prince of death, and yet he swears the most wicked oaths that ever were uttered — I don’t think there is the best chance for him to recover, but he may live for months yet = he takes all his spite out on poor little John, he never allows him to play with my boys – if he finds it out John is sure to get a whipping — or have to sit in his room for an hour or two — Mother says if he ever does get well he has to leave her house for ever — she can hardly bear with him now —

Dear Sister
I feel so lonely today and there being no one here I thought I would not employ myself better than by writing to you. Ma is still quite unwell and I have the whole charge of the house and children so I have to be pretty busy, but still it does not keep me from being lonesome. I often wish I could see you and have a good talk. I have so many things to tell you. Little troubles that I could not trust to paper. I told you I would never be happy and I feel my words will come true. But I ought not to distress you with my troubles but I know you sympathize with me when no one else will and if you only lived near me when I feel so badly I could tell you everything and I would feel better. My heart gets so full sometimes it seems like it will break. Poor Sis I miss her so much I used to go to her when I felt badly and have a good talk with her but I have no one now she is dead and you far away, and you know I might as well look for sympathy from a rock as from my two older sisters.
I am making aprons for the boys and have stitched four shirt collars for Pa today. Pa got your letter sometime ago. They were very sorry to hear of your trouble in getting home, but were thankful that you got there safe. Pa says tell Charley that Brother has trimmed five trees since he left and he is happy to inform him that there is about fifty apple trees living in his orchard. Ma is better today and I am in hopes she is going to get well. It has been raining all day and you need not wonder at my having the blues.
Give my love to Neil and Nan. I have not heard one word from Nan. I want to see them so badly. Aunt Mimie is well and still with us and gets along very well. We are having the Porch fixed and the yard is covered with shavings. Sister M and Sister B were here yesterday. They are both well. Give my love to Charley and kiss the children for me. Does little Charley ever ask where his Aunt Juel is. Show I wish I could see him. Write often sister for I do so live to here from you. Remember me kindly to all my Friends and accept the love of your Sister Julia.
P.S. Sister Mary intends sending for Puss next week. She has had an awful time with her breast. It has rose three times and been lanced. Her baby’s lungs sore afflicted and they don’t think it will live. Burn this for I have written it in a room without a fire and in a great hurry.
Note: Don’t know if the sister is Julia’s late sister-in-law Adeline (Whitesides) Crenshaw, or one of the Crenshaw girls that didn’t survive to maturity. I’m leaning towards Adeline. She always referred to her sisters-in-law as just sisters and she died sometime after April 1856.

After May 3, 1857                                                              James Foster visits Hickory Hill, meets Julia for first time
According to Julie Ann (Crenshaw) Morris’ letter of March 5, 1858, she first met her second husband James Foster in the month of May in 1857: “I got acquainted with him last May.” Following Foster’s visit, she began to correspond with Foster that led up to his proposal sometime before March 5, 1858.

Before March 5, 1858                                                                                                   Foster proposes to Julia in a letter
Now for the secret. I am corresponding with a gentleman from Tenn. And he has proposed, but as I do not know much about him, I have not answered him positively nor I will not until I see him again. I got acquainted with him last May but I don’t know that I will accept him for I do not feel much like entering the married state, but I feel it due to you as one of my best friends and kindest sisters to let you know as much about myself as I can.
Note: This gentleman from Tennessee is James Foster. He is proposing to Crenshaw’s daughter Julia.

March 5, 1858                                                                              Crenshaw’s daughter Julia writes to sister Margaret
                                                                                        March 5th 1858
Dear Sister
I intended writing to you last Sunday but I had company all day and could not get one moment of time and I have been so busy sewing ever since I could not find time until tonight. Brother’s [William T. Crenshaw] family are here now. They have been with us nearly two weeks, but expect to leave tomorrow. I wish you could see his wife [Margaret E. (Campbell) Wilbanks Crenshaw]. I know you would love her. She is modest, amiable and upon the whole just such a wife as brother ought to have; economical, not fond of dress and display, and I believe a good Christian. She has two of the best children I ever saw, a boy and a girl. Her young [unknown word][daughter Jennie D. Wilbanks] is nearly fourteen and her boy [John McKee Wilbanks] ten.
Sister Liz was over the other night looks about as usual. Her little boy got badly burned a few weeks ago but is now quite well. Sister Mary [Mary (Crenshaw) Hall] and family are quite well. Her babys can talk as plain as anyone. Sister is situated so comfortably I wish you could see her.
Sister it seems as though you have taken up your idea from something I have said to you that I have an idea of getting married but I have not. I only thought I would exact a promise from you to attend my wedding if I did get married. Now I am going to tell you something if you will promise not to say any thing about it, not even to Charley. Do you promise. Well you must burn this letter as soon as you read it. Now for the secret. I am corresponding with a gentleman from Tenn. And he has proposed, but as I do not know much about him, I have not answered him positively nor I will not until I see him again. I got acquainted with him last May but I don’t know that I will accept him for I do not feel much like entering the married state, but I feel it due to you as one of my best friends and kindest sisters to let you know as much about myself as I can. Now Sister, don’t for the world let any one see this but burn it as soon as you read it. I have been getting along so nicely this winter that nothing to do but sew I have been making me a lot of nice underclothes. I have as nice chemise and ten pairs of drawers I want to make me four linen chemise and two more pairs of drawers and then if I get an opportunity to go to see you at any time I will be ready. How did you like the dress John gave me? I wish you would tell me how to make it and what to trim It with. I wish you would make me a fisher or cape something like veils to wear with low necked dresses make it of either black or white as your taste may suggest. The pattern would do but I would not know how to make it after I would get it. Pa and Ma are both very well and send a great deal of love to you and the children. Is Nancy coming home with Charley. If she does give my love to her and tell her she is just as mean as she can be for never writing to me and tell [unknown word] I seldom write two letters without receiving an answer but when she answering last letter I shall be happy to write to her to [two unknown words]. I am very much obliged to him for his postscript and would be very sorry to hear of his being refused but he is so fascinating I think that would be impossible. How is Hal[?] I haven’t heard from him since he left Alton. I feel very much afraid he has cut my acquaintance. Sister I don’t expect you can make out the half of this letter but read what you can and guess at the rest and then burn it. Write soon and please write longer letters.
Your sister Julia.
Notes: At this point Julia is a widow and is probably residing at Hickory Hill with her parents. She doesn’t married James Foster until the following month on the 6th.
William T. Crenshaw is apparently residing out of state because his whole family is visiting for two week. His new wife is his second; Margaret E. Campbell, the widow of Daniel P. Wilbanks. Margaret’s girl is Jennie D. Wilbanks. The son is John Wilbanks.
At first I thought the phrase “looks about as usual” be a shorthand note to say Elizabeth (Crenshaw) Lawler was pregnant again. If she was, she must have been glowing from the conception. Raphael Edward Lawler wasn’t born until nine months later in December.
Mary Hart (Crenshaw) Hall’s babies are her twins, John E. Hall, Jr. and Mary H. Hall, born in 1856.

552. Phyllis Blickensderfer, “Our Lamb Tree,”, 4/23/2005 revised.
The definitive book on the Lamb family "Lamb and Allied Families of the Sequatchie Valley" was published in 1996 (Gateway Press / Library of Congress Catalog Card 95-81617) by James L. Mohon (a double cousin through both Lamb and Boyd lines.) Unfortunately, I don't have all the book's entries in my database – but will check the book for anyone who might have a connection. Prominent allied surnames are: ANDERSON, BARKET, BENNETT, BOYD, CARMACK, CLARK, FARMER, GRAHAM, HEARD, HUGHES, JOHNSON, KELLY, KIRKLIN, POPE, RAINS, ROBERSON, ROGERS, SMITH, STANDI(E)FER, STEWART, THURMAN, TURNER.

The Lamb family's earliest known location is Pennsylvania. Both Alexander and Adam listed Pennsylvania as their birthplace in census records. As yet, no connection has been made to a specific family there. James indicates their father is probably Hugh Lamb. The Lambs and the families they married into are Scot or Scot-Irish. From "The Scotch-Irish of Colonial Pennsylvania" Wayland F. Dunaway, Genealogical Publishing Company (1981) : Explanation of 'Scotch-Irish' -- "Ulster Irish. First written report of term was 1728: "They are chiefly Presbyterian from the northern part of Ireland, who in American are generally called Scotch-Irish." Originally lowland Scots, an amalgamation of Celts, Romans, Frisians, Angles, Saxons, Danes, Norwegian, Normans and Flemings...greater portion of Celtic strain. Transplant to Ulster came strongly during reign of James I, although other Scots moved earlier."

Alexander (born about 1782) and Adam (born about 1785) amassed a great deal of property in Tennessee. Alexander married Elizabeth Carmack, born 17 Dec 1779 in Virginia.

Adam Lamb married Nancy Kelly, daughter of Alexander Kelly (b. abt 1755 in Armagh county, Ireland, died after 1838, Tennesse. Married 1778, Nancy Robinson. Served as a private in Captain Thomas Parramore's company of the 9th Bat., and as Captain in Greenbriar Militia. [Adj. Gen's office, War Department, Washington, DC; Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution by Gwathmey; National number 242943.] Served as second major, Green county militia, and as justice of the peace for same county under the State of Franklin. Alexander also served as a Colonel during the Etowah campaign.). Adam died intestate and the ensuing court documents show his children as: Jane, John G., Patrick Darley, James Houston, Elizabeth, Ruth, Mary Elizabeth, Lucetta, Nancy, Neal, Alex and Ellenor.

Patrick Darley Lamb was born in 1823 in Bledsoe county, Tennessee, died 24 Jan 1895, Whitwell, Marion county TN, m. Elizabeth Clay Johnson, b. 1 Feb 1827 in Tennessee, died 30 Jun 1895, in Whitwell. Their children were: Louise S., Nancy, Caroline, Ruth Damarus, Euclid Houston, Fernando C., Adolphus Phelps, Darius E., Hannebal, Louisa Emma, Uffa and Cyrus.

Euclid Houston Lamb was born 22 May, 1855, in Bledsoe county, died 3 July 1913 in Jackson county Oklahoma, m. Martha Boyd, b. 14 Mar 1855, d. 27 May 1904, in Bledsoe county (daughter of William Jasper Boyd b. 1 Nov 1820 d. 3 Mar 1887 and Margaret (Peggy) Turner b. 10 Aug 1825 d. 9 Oct 1892.). Euclid and Martha's children were: Claude H., Lella Belle, Alda Mack (died during WWI) and Ethel Mae.

Lella Belle Lamb was born 13 Mar 1885 in Bledsoe county, died 26 March 1942 in Jackson county, Oklahoma, m. 7 Mar 1907 to John Henry Harrison. Please check my Harrison page for this family.

James Hoge I, b. 1706, New Jersey; d. 2 Jun 1795, Frederick Co. Va; m. (1) Nancy Griffith, (2) Agnes Crawdford. Most books and records indicate that Agnes Crawford was his first wife and Nancy Griffith, the second. I believe that this is wrong and can be proven by his will:

Purchased 760 acres from Jost Hite on May 26,1742. This land was part of Hite's 2,168-acre patent land aquired on October 3,1734. (Orange County deed book states "part of 3,395-acre patent"). Hoge paid 190 pounds for this tract located on Meadow Brook ( a branch of Cedar Creek which was a branch of North River Shenandoah). This land is on U.S. Hwy. 11, about 1/4 mile south of Middleton, Virginia with the southernmost tips in Warren County. Interstate Hwy. 81 is on the southeast part and the entire Interstate 66 interchange lies within the tract. Frederick County Highways 624,625, & 727 run either on or along the property which also contains the Cedar Creek Battlefield (Civil War). James Hoge & wife Agnes sold 300 acres of the 760 acres to Issac Hite for 60 pounds on March 28, 1748.


James was an elder of the Presbyterian Congregation which held services at the Meeting House on Cedar Creek at Mulberry Run in 1750.


James was deceased by July 7, 1795 when his will dated March 18,1793 was proved in Frederick County Court. He listed his wife Agnes & sons: Moses, James, Edward, & Soloman who received the home plantation.The will also listed daughters Martha Allen, Mary Evans, Barbara Reed and two grandsons (sons of Edward who were not named).


Ages was deceased by October 1,1798 when her will was proved in Superior Court for the District composed of Berkeley, Frederick, & Shenandoah at Winchester. She listed a granddaughter Mariam Elliott and son Moses Hoge.

Wayne, this is what I have;
1. My grandfather was William Martin Bowling 9-30-1896 married to Mary Edna Foster born 1903.
2. Mary Edna was the daughter of Edward R Foster b abt 1866  died abt 1942  Married to Mary Rose Lamb Born about 1868. This marriage produce 10 children one of which was my grandmother.
3. Edward was the son of Captain James ( Alexander or William ) Foster B 12-14-1827 died 12-16-1875 Married to Julia Crenshaw born 1935 died 1910 This marriage produced 3 children two of which lived and one was Edward Foster.
4. James was the son of William Foster b1-15-1804 died 8-23-1873 Married Rhoda (Rody) Roberson 11-10-1825 and she was born 4-7-1810 and died 7-2-1890 This marriage produce 5 children.
5.William Foster was the son of James Alexander Foster  b 2-14 1768 married 10-5-1801 and died 3-23-1835. and Elizabeth Hoge born 9-25-1777 and died 7-11 1835. this marriage produced 7 children

This is where my trail for this portion ends but I will continue as my main focus has been the Bowling side of which I am a participant in a DNA study to determine which of the original Bowling Immigrants I belong to. This is interesting in that the spelling of Bowling ( Bolen, Bolin etc are one and the same but has changed over the years,.
Of interest though to me if we return to the marriage of James Foster and Elizabeth Hoge she being born 9-25-1777 in Wythe, Va and died 3-25-1835 in Bledsoe, TN and trace her back we have her being the daughter of
1.James Hoge 1-12-1742, died 4-5-1812 married 1768 to Elizabeth Howe born 5-11-1751  died 7-11-1835 both having resided in Pulaski, Va
2. Elizabeth Howe was the daughter of Joseph Howe born 1729 died 1748 married to an Eleanor Dunbar born in Scotland in 1730 and died 1790 in Montgomery, Va
3, Joseph Howe was the son of James Howe born 1710 in Gloucester England and married to a Daily ( first name unknown at this point but she was born in 1710
4. James Howe was the son of Emanuel Scrope Howe born 1663 in Nottingham England married 1688 in Cumberland England and died 9-26-1709 ( he is somewhat famous as a British General however he married a Ruperta Hughes born 1671 in Prague, Czechoslovakia and who died 4-4-1726 in England.
5. Ruperta was the illegitimate daughter of Prince Rupert born 12-17-1619 in Prague. He was the 3rd son of Charles 1's sister Elizabeth ( the winter Queen) by her marriage to Frederick V, elector of the Palatinate, Frederick's claim to the throne of "Bohemia" prompted an invasion by forces of the Hapsburg at the beginning of the 30 years war. Rupert was the nephew of King Charles 1. He has quite an interesting story and it is available in the net which is where I received the above info. Rupert was however the son of Friedrich V ( spelling difference but same person) born 8-16-1596 and Elizabeth Stuart born 8-19-1596, Falkland castle, in Fife. She was the daughter of James the 1 of Scotland or James Vl of great Britain. He was both l and Vl in that he was l of Scotland but when he joined Ireland, Wales, Scotland etc. into great Britain he became James Vl of England or Great Brittan. he was born 6-19-1566 and there is a wealth of info on him however his name was James Charles Stuart.
The fact the Ruperta mentioned above was in fact the illegitimate daughter of Rupert von der Pfalz ( that's his actual name appears to be well documented in Cokayne's Complete Peerage and his Complete Baronetage as well as Burkes. Strangely he never married but did produce tow illegitimate children one of which is our Ruperta.
As I said Wayne it's an adventure and some of the info may in fact be incorrect but I doubt it at this point but it's the journey that keeps me going.
I will be away from Home for the next few weeks as I own a company that builds artificial (synthetic turf) football and soccer fields around the world and have projects going on in Manhattan NY as well as Los Angeles and actually 3 in between and have to meet with people at the University of Notre Dame from which I graduated in 1972 in South bend end of next week to see if I can land a practice field as the hollowed stadium will "never" be anything but pristine natural grass, but would appreciate your comments on the info I have sent between now and Sunday.  I will make an attempt to come to the reunion and would like more details when your time allows.
Best regards
Mike Bowling
PS I'm actually now on a adventure to trace Mary Rose Lamb who was Edward Fosters wife born 1868 back to Ireland. I may have  a few different types of blood running through my veins but will always have Irish running through my heart.

Please add her under my children.  My grandmother, Helen Bodie is doing good, we talk daily and my mother Helen Reese is doing good as well.  I regret that I haven’t been able to be at any of the family reunions, but do plan on attending when I can work my schedule around it.  I would love to meet everyone.  Have a great day!

My father-in-law, Coy McManus died yesterday. Coy was one of my all time favorites! Although he was 87 when he died, he was robust and active and he regaled his family and friends with his wonderful stories almost right up until the end. Even as Alzheimer's tightened its grip on his mind, it could not dampen his spirit or the essential "sweetness" of this kind and generous man. I loved Coy from the first day I met him, and my admiration for him as a person, as a man, as a husband and as a father have deepened over the years. Before I met his beautiful daughter, my constant prayer was that I would meet the sweetest, kindest person on earth, who would be "just right" for me. My prayers were answered when I met Sherry and now I know where she got her sweet, kind spirit... from Coy and his beloved wife of 61 years, Margaret. Rest easy in the arms of God, kind, sweet and gentle soul. No doubt we will miss you, but your spirit and the wonderful memories we have of you will be with us always!

Coy Laban McManus
(September 4, 1925 - September 14, 2012)

Coy Laban McManus, 87, of Midland, passed away Friday, September 14, 2012, surrounded by his family, at Presbyterian Hospital in Matthews.
Mr. McManus was born September 4, 1925 on the family farm in Mecklenburg County. He was the tenth of 16 children born to the late Willis Alfred McManus and Carrie Biggers McManus.
He was a graduate of Bain School in Mint Hill, class of 1943. He raised cattle and was a retired painting contractor and a man who loved his farm. Most of all, he was a husband, father, brother, and friend. He loved spending time with his family, brothers, sisters and their children. The values he instilled in his children will be his legacy.
His life journey began when in 1943 he went to volunteer for the Air Force. He was advised he was deferred back to the farm to assist his mother and younger members of the family. He lived on this farm his entire life time.
He was a charter member of United Love Baptist Church of Midland where he served in many capacities. He was a former Sunday School teacher and deacon as well as holding various offices. He was actively involved in the organization of United Love working with the Cabarrus Baptist Association Director. During a three day bond campaign he sold the most church bonds and won a bible as recognition. Coy spent many hours contacting people in regard to property and the legal aspects for a church site. He served as chairman of the building committee. Throughout his life, his faith and love in the Lord remained strong. He was very supportive of the church and had a deep love of God.
He had many accomplishments, but one that gave pleasure to so many was his avid gardening. His love of God’s handiwork and the joy he received in cultivating and sharing the beauty of this handiwork with others was such a source of pride to him.
He had a passion for living. He was known and loved for his sense of humor and sharing memories and history of the past. He was compassionate, loved, and made friends with everyone he met. Coy loved the mountains of Western North Carolina, the relaxing peaceful Blue Ridge scenery.
The family will receive friends from 10 – 11 a.m., Monday, September 17, at United Love Baptist Church of Midland. The funeral service will begin at 11:00 in the sanctuary officiated by Rev. Marvin Tyson. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
Survivors include his wife of 61 years, Margaret Elizabeth Cook McManus, of the home; his daughter, Sharon Cox and her husband, Ron, of Monroe; his son, David McManus and his wife, Marsha, of Banner Elk; four step-grandchildren, Katie Walker and her husband, Drew, Susannah Maddox and her husband, Richard, and Anna and Jamie Canterbury; his brothers, Paul and his wife, Sara Margaret, Leroy and his wife, Karen, Doyle, and his sister, Libby Stegall and her husband, Ben, all of Midland; and nieces and nephews..
The family would like for memorials to be sent to United Love Baptist Church 11487 Flowe’s Store Road, Midland, NC 28107.
