Mr. Frederick Verner' Cleveland, residence, Palmyra

land is a. subscriber for this Genealogy. 

(Special to the Innkeeper.) 

Palmyra, N. Y-, Jan. 6, 1894. One of the best known men among the dealers in 
Wayne county is Mr. P. V. Cleveland, whose picture the Innkeeper gives to-day. It 
shows him to be good-looking, and represents a man of liberal thought and generous 
disposition. The Innkeeper knows that he possesses these traits to an eminent degree. 
He made one of the best presidents that the Wayne County Beer and Liquor Dealers 
ever had, and only stepped down at the last annual election to let some of his brethren 
" have a show at it," as he jokingly remarked. Mr. Cleveland has views of his own, and 
does not hesitate to express them. He was a Murphy man at the last convention, and 
couldn't be swerved either by Tekulsky or Kearns. In a recent letter to The Innkeeper., 
speaking of the New York and Brooklyn men whom he met at Syracuse, Mr. Cleveland 
says : "If any of them should happen to mention my name remember me to them, for 
they are all good fellows, although they were not all with us at the convention. I think 
they were wrong in dragging politics into that gathering, and in over-riding the rights 
of many delegates, and I further think that the very disgraceful manner in which the 
Syracuse Convention was ruled contributed to the defeat of the Democratic ticket this 
past fall." 

Mr. Cleveland, when he grew to boy's estate, received a good education. But he was 
ambitious, and he was barely over fourteen years of age when he induced his father to 
allow him to try and earn his own living, and he went to work for Maurice Richards in 
Utica, and remained with him for four years, gaining, during that period, the full confi- 
dence of. his employer. He was called back to his home, however, by the illness of his 
father, and he then lived with his parents until the time of his father's death ; and when 
the estate was settled up, young Cleveland moved to Palmyra, where he started in busi- 
ness in August, 1872, and has remained there ever since. He has been 14 years in the 
retail and three in the wholesale business, and has developed a business tact and judg- 
ment which has caused the firm to be most favorably known throughout all of Wayne 
county. When the importance of organization to the liquor interest became apparent, 
Mr. Cleveland was one of the foremost men to urge action, and his activity in behalf of 
the general welfare of the trade throughout the country has been fully recognized and 
appreciated. The honor of the presidency of the association was unsought by Mr. Cleve- 
land ; it was forced upon him for the simple reason that he was fully qualified for the 
responsibilities. The Innkeeper congratulates Mr. Cleveland, and in bestowing upon 
him the assurance of its most distinguished consideration, also takes the opportunity to 
wish him a happy new year.

Henry Cleveland'' Wood (Emma MatUdaS John Hamilton', Pal- 
mer", Benjamin', Deliverance*, Palmer', Edward", Moses*), b. at Harrodsburg, 

Ky., Jan. 12, 1855, unm. The following biographical sketch 
(which is accompanied by his portrait and selections from his 
writings) is from Illustrated Kentuckian, Lexington, Ky., Nov., 18^4, 
JII : jpj — In early life he was thrown much upon his own re- 
sources, and such educational advantages as he lacked, a strong 
literary taste and extensive reading in general measure sup- 
plied. He at first turned his attention to journalism. [See 
Bibliography, Chap. IV.] Mr. Wood has led a very busy life, 
and possesses a happy combination of business tact and ability, 



with a talent for literary pursuits. By his thrift he has become 
a property-holder in his native town. His genius is composite, 
and with literature he combines both music and art. In the 
latter he is expert in wood carving, and has adorned his home 
in this place with products of his skill. In dramatic composi- 
tion, he is author of two librettos, and both operas were per- 
formed with much success in several cities in the State. Both 
in poetry and prose literature Mr. Wood has won laurels of dis- 
tinction, and he is well known in periodical literature, being a 
contributor to some of the most prominent magazines in the 
country, among them, the following : The Quiver, Appleton's 
Journal, Leslie's periodicals ; Harper's Weekly will soon pub- 
lish one of his clever short stories. In social life, Mr. Wood has 
ever a fund of sparkling wit and humor, which render him 
popular in a high degree. 

{Press Notices.) 

Communities, like men, are sometimes forgetful of their best friends, and they need 
at times to be reminded of the existence of strong personalities that affect their common 
life for good. Such a one in Harrodsbur^ is Henry Cleveland Wood, who quietly and 
modestly has grown to hold a unique part in the composite activities and sentiments of 
the place. He may be properly termed the poet laureate of Harrodsburg — and a poet, 
too, whose tender verses have ever been freely indited to Harrodsburg themes, whether 
gfrave or gay. If a lady desires to give an entertainment, and to have something^ bright 
and sparkling on her invitations, she goes to Mr. Wood for help; if a lover wishes to 
send a gift to his fair one with a tender sentiment expressed in verse, Mr. Wood is his 
refuge, and when the last sad summons has called away Harrodsburg's brightest and 
best ones, who has ever with such loving sympathy and tender grace sung their conse- 
crated virtues? Besides establishing himself as a distinct feature of Harrodsburg's in- 
tellectual and sentimental life, he has earned for himself recognition in the wider field 
of magazine literature. 

The New York Star contains an ably written article on " Young Literary Kentuck- 
ians," in whichRobt. Burns Wilson, James Lane Allen, and Henry Cleveland Wood are 
all given excellent notices for their work. 

Among the younger poets of the South, few show more vital . signs of promise than 
Henry Cleveland Wood and Ingram Crockett of Ky., John P. Sjolander of Tex., and 
Robert Loveman of Ala. Worthy also of being included in this list is Rufus J. Childress 
of Louisville. The South has other young poets of even gjreater fame. These will yet, 
if true to themselves, reflect honor upon the South by presenting her as she is to her 
own people and to many besides. Mr. Wood's fame has traveled East, and won him 
recognition from the higher magazines. His landscapes are Kentucky landscapes. Few 
photographs could be truer than the study he gives in his " When Fallow Fields Invite." 
Nor is he a mere landscape painter. His work, while a careful reproduction of nature, 
has something of deeper quality ; he sees living man the harvest field, as well as the 
rose by the wayside.— 7%^ Hound Table. 

Residence: Harrodsburg ,(1898). Mr. Wood, since the age 
of seventeen, has been and still is in mercantile business on his 
own account. Mr. Wood is a subsciber for this Genealogy.

Dr. William Hector Park graduated at Emory College, Ox- 
ford, Ga., 1880, Belle vue Medical College, City of New York, 
1880. His boyhood days were spent on his father's farm, but 
before he reached his teens he was inspired with the desire to 
become a Medical Missionary. He entered Emory College Jan. 
18, 1878, and in March, 1880, was appointed to China, and grad- 
uated June 30, 1880. He studied medicine in Edinburgh, Scot- 
land, and in London, Eng., but graduated from Bellevue Medi- 
cal College, New York, physician and surgeon. Since coming 
to China he has had charge of the Soochow Hospital of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church South. This hospital was erected 
while Dr. Walter R. T. Lambuth was a Medical Missionary in 
China, and he and Dr. Park worked together. When Dr. Lam- 
buth removed from Soochow, Dr. Park was left in charge of 
the hospital, which has continuously remained under his man- 
agement (except a two-years furlough) to the present, and now 
has an average of 9,000 patients a year. His work consists in 
seeing both clinic and in-patients, foreign missionaries, and 
wealthy Chinese, who send for him to their homes. He has 
also a class of medical students, who, after a course of five 
years, graduate with a medical diploma. One class of gradu- 
ates are successful physicians and druggists. For one case 
that was cured in the Hospital, Dr. Park was made an Honorary 
Mandarin. Rich and poor alike find in him a friend and ad- 
viser. Dr. Park took a special Medical Course in New York 
city, 189s, and returned with Mrs.- Park to China, June, 1895.

Chapter IL 



ALEXANDER' CLEVELAND, the ancestor of the Cleve- 
lands of Virginia origin, was born, evidently in England, prob- 
ably prior to 1620, and may' have remained in England, but it is 
generally believed by his descendants that he came to America, 
and settled in or near Prince William county, Virginia ; there is 
no record of his death, nor of his marriage ; the name of his 
wife is unknown. Had at least one child ; 

+ 16002 Alexander' Cleveland, b. probably about the 
year 1659, either in England or, perhaps, in Virginia. 

Alexander' Cleveland lived in England, locality not dis- 
covered. Concerning- him no. authentic record is found, and it 
is not definitely ascertained which of the two was the immi- 
grant ancestor from England,' he or his son Alexander' ; or 
whether they both came in company. The early shipping lists 
or lists of emigrants to American ports do not mention the 
names of any Clevelands. 

It may prove that he was the Mr. Cleveland of Loughboro,. 
county Leicester, Eng., stated to have accompanied, prior to 
1629, the Skipworths of Cotes, and Henry Herrick, 5th son of 
Sir William Herrick of Beau Manor Park, Loughboro parish, 
from England to Virginia, as already narrated in this Geneal- 
ogy. (See the account of Moses' Cleveland -|- i of Woburn, 
Mass., p. 24-5). If this was Alexander' Cleveland, he evidently 
remained in Virginia while Henry Herrick journeyed to Sa- 
lem, Mass., and was later a founder of the first church in Salem 
1629. There are Clevelands in Virginia from old times. 

So closely do the Southern Clevelands in feature resemble 
the New England Clevelands that they have been mistaken to 
be near relatives of each other, and it is not unreasonable to 
conjecture that Moses' Cleveland and Alexander' Cleveland 
were brothers, or of at least near kinship. 

Oliver* Cleveland + 16023 of Spring Valley, Albemarle co.,. 
Va., in a letter to Hon. Jesse Franklin" Cleveland, May 10, 
1839, said : 

" My father and grandfather were both named Alexander 
Cleveland. My grandfather lived to be 1 1 1 years old, and my 



grandmother to be 103 years old. My grandfather was an 
Englishman by birth." 

The descendants of Alexander' Cleveland have taken a most 

important part in the history of our Great Republic. 


ALEXANDERS CLEVELAND (Aiexanden), born, it is pre- 
sumed, either in England or in Virginia, about 1659, d. at the 
plantation of his son, John' Cleveland, on Blue Run, in Orange 
CO., Va., about 1770 (within 3 days of the death of his wife), at 
the age of iii years, m. perhaps Milly Presley (see below). His 
wife was b. (birthplace unknown) about 1667, d. at the home- 
stead of her son, John", on Blue Run, about 1770 (within 3 days 
of the death of her husband), at the age of 103 years. Evi- 
dently had at least the following children, b. either in England 
or in Virginia, perhaps in Prince William co., Va., on Bull Run: 

+ 16003 John' Cleveland, b. about 1 695-1 700. 

+ 16004 Alexander' Cleveland, b. about 1698-1 7 10. 

-|- 16005 Jeremiah' Cleveland, b. about 1700-17 12. 

-|- 1 6006 (?) Mica J ah' Cleveland (conjectured to be a son 
of Alexander*), b. about 1702-1 7 12. 

+16007 Elizabeth' Cleveland, b. about 1704-1716. 

+ 16008 William' Cleveland, born about the year 17 19, 
evidently was a son of Alexander''' Cleveland. 

Alexander" Cleveland may have been the original immi- 
grant from England, or his father may have come, bringing 
him ; the notes given in the account of his father may apply to 
himself. In the entire absence of reliable records, there must 
always be a wide field for conjecture. 

John Cleveland, with his father, the younger Alexander 
Cleveland, early migrated to Virginia. Settled on the since 
famous Bull Run, in Prince William co., Va. Removed [prior 
to 1734] some 60 miles to the southwest, locating in a border 
settlement on Blue Run, some six or eight miles above its junc- 
tion with the Rapidan, in Orange co., near the line of Albe- 
marle ; he and wife dying there about 1770, within three days 
of each other, when about 100 years. 

Alexander^ lived to be iii years old and his wife 103 years 
old. Not improbably they had other children than those whose 
names (except that of Micajah') are correctly given above, ac- 
cording to evidence. John' and Alexander' were deeded land 
in Orange co. 1734. The name of Micajah' is not certain, nor 
is it sure that he was a child of Alexander'', but it seems very 
probable that he was either a son or a nephew of Alexander', 
having evidently originated in Va. 

Orange CO., Va., Land fee. — Alexander Cleveland (alone) deeds John Taylor, Nov. 
22, 1752, 100 acres, part of a patent granted to Lawrence Franklyn for 400 acres, consid.

acres, part of patent to same party, consid. £12. los. No will or settlement of estate. 

William" Cleveland 4-16348 stated that his great-grand- 
mother, or grandmother, was Milly Presley. But it is evident 
that she was not the wife of Alexander' Cleveland. 


JOHN' CLEVELAND (Alexanders, Alexanderi), d. On his estate 

on Blue Run, 6 or 8 miles above the junction with the Rapid 
Ann, Va., at a good old age, m. prob. in Va., Miss Martha Coffee, 
she d. at her home on Blue Run, quite aged. They had the fol- 
lowing, and perhaps other children :

8, June 8, 1744, in Orange county, Virginia.

Culpeper county, Virginia. 

4-16015' Cleveland, b. April, 1748, probably in 
Culpeper county, Virginia. 

1 60 1 6 Another son*, name not learned. 

John^ Cleveland, with his father, Alexander^, were early 
settlers of Prince William co., but it is probable that John^ was 
born and reared there. He and his parents removed, prior to 
1734 or 1738, to Orange county, and located on Blue Run, where 
they lived and died ; house joiner or builder. Large real estate 
owner. Records of County Court Office, Orange co. Deeds: — (About 
the beginning of the records) 1734, Prince Curtis conveys to 
John Cleveland about 600 acres of land. 

Mrs. Sarah C. Abbott writes : " My father gave me this information, that my grand- 
father's father IJohn'] crossed the ocean from lingland and settled Va.; in first settling- 
of S. C. he came to S. C. and made that his home." 

Some of his descendants think that he removed to N. C. with his children. 

Martha Coffee was not improbably related to Hev. James Coffey, who m. Elizubutli-' 
Cleveland. A relative of hers, Rev. A. Coffey, d. 1880, Baptist clergyman, author of His- 
tory of Regular Baptist Church, pub. since 1880, with a biography of his life. 


ALEXANDER" CLEVELAND (Alexander^ Alexander!), d. aboUt 

1774-5. [He married, according to one account, Milly Presley, 
but he may have m. twice.] He married [so stated by his 
grandson, Henry Wilson'' Cleveland] Margaret Doolittle, of 
Irish descent. His children had children and grandchildren. 
Three of his daughters d. prior to 1839. Children :

(1893). Their great-gr.son, Judge J. JfJ' Hazelrigg^ member of

Alexander' Cleveland evidently accompanied his father 
and brother, John\ from Bull Run to Orange co., Va. 

Ora7ige co. rec. — 1734 [about the commencement oC the records] Prince Curtis deeds 
ALEXANDER CLEVELAND loi acres. ALEXANDER ClevelaSd, JR., and Margaret, his

sworn receipt for 40'' for rent. 

The farm vacated by Robert* Cleveland -f 160J3, in Prince William co., was rented by 
Holtzcla-w to Alexander^ Cleveland... 

William' (son of Alexander^), on entering the Continental 
army about 1776, sold his interest in his father's estate ; it is 
therefore evident that Alexander* d. prior to that sale. 

Henry Wilson" Cleveland stated that Alexander' m. Marga- 
ret Doolittle. She was living after the war closed. 

Oliver'' Cleveland (son of Alexander^), in a letter May 10, 183^, says : "Last fall I de- 
termined to take a trip to Kentucky to visit my sisters and brothers, which trip I per- 
formed in ray carriage and have just returned home. They have children and grand- 
children. I have thfee sisters in Kentucky: Betsy, Milly, and Patsy, and one brother, 
William, and one sister, Anca, in Amherst co., Virginia. My mother had six sons and 
seven daughters, all of whom are dead except those named above and myself. My sis- 
ter Betsy's descendants have increased the population over loo."

near Culpeper C. H., Va. 

-j- 16030 (?) Reuhkn* Cleveland (conjectured to be a son), 
b. ab. 1741-54. 

Jekkmiah" Cleveland lived with his parents on Bull Run. 
It is not known whether he removed with them to Blue Run, 
Va. His son Jacob* came from Culpeper eo., Va., 1780, to S. C, 
but none of Jacob's brothers and sisters [any of whose names 
we have been unable to learn J left Va. with him. Peter" Cleve- 
land -I-16397 remembers, 1S86, that Jacob' had brothers (but 
has not their names), and that his great-grandfather (who, it is 
thought, came from Eng.) was named either Jeremiah or John, 
is not positive which. But the name could not have been John, 
for Gen. Benjamin" Cleveland -\~\G22j[ stated that he was seci^nd 


cousin [probably meaning that his father, John*, was second 
cousin] of Reuben' Cleveland -j- 16 118. 


MICAJAH' CLEVELAND ([PAiexander^, Alexander']), m., name 
of his wife not known, she d. prob. in Tenn. after 1800. (She 
m. 2d — see below.) Children : 


16032 John, afterward Jack* Cleveland, was stolen by 
Indians. His mother, mourning for him as dead, named her 
next child John. But the first John returned home in several 
years, and then his name was changed to Jack, and familiarly 
called Indian Jack. He accompanied his mother to Tenn., and 
went with Mr. Hurly to Clinch mountain (toward Ky.), where 
he shouldered his gun and went away; not since heard from. 

4-16033 John* Cleveland. vSally*; Nancv' Cleveland. 

Micajah'^ Cleveland lived in Va., and was troubled by In- 
dians, wlao stole his son, as narrated above. 

Mrs. Micajah Cleveland m. 2d, prob. in Va., John Shaw, re- 
moved from Va. (with Mr. Hurly and family) to Tenn., and 
thence to Shelby co., Ky., and lived awhile. Ch.: Jimmy Shaw,

James Coffey. Child : 

+ 16034. Elizabeth^ Coffey, b. ab. 1740-50, in North Carolina. 

Elizabeth^ lived in Prince William co., Va. Her father 
evidently was Alexander'. 

Rev. James Coffey, a Baptist clergyman, went early to N. 
C. Very probably he was brother to Martha Coffee, wife of 
John'' Cleveland. 


WILLIAM' CLEVELAND (Alexander^, Aiexanderi), died in or 
near Loudoun co., Va., between Oct. 17, 1787, and May 29, 1788,

Dorkey or DoRKUs" Cleveland, survived her father. 

William' Cleveland lived in Loudoun co., Va. His will, 
dated Oct. 17, 1787, was probated June 9, 1788. He leaves all 
his estate to his wife Mary during widowhood ; if she marries, 
then it is to be equally divided between his wife Mary and 
daughter Dorkey (or Dorkus). — Clerk of Loudoun co., Va. 

Prof. Lewis Cass'' Woolery writes: "I do not know who Uiis WlLl.l.^M Ci.evel.xnd

Rev. John* Cleveland, a Baptist clergyman ; went about 
1772, 1785, from Va. and N. C. with his brother Larkin", jour- 
nied on pack-horses, and cut their road through cane and brush 
as they traveled. 

"When he would preach, the wicked people would take him out of the house and 
beat him severely, but he would preach on, and when they let him go, would mount a 
stump or log and finish his sermon." 

They came to Pickens District, S. C, and were of the first 
settlers. Lived in Pendleton District, at Cleveland's Ferry. 
[Pendleton Dist. was divided, 1828, into Anderson and Pickens; 
Pickens was divided, 1866, into Pickens and Oconee counties. 
The Clevelands lived mostly in Oconee.] He was one of the 
very first settlers of Franklin co., Ga., ab. 1785 (then inhabited

lived on the Ga. side, in sight of each other), where he dwelt 
many years and reared his family, who settled at various points 
along Tugaloo River (a branch of the Savannah). Preached in 
Chauga church, Oconee co., and in Eastonala church, Ga. " He 
was good to his neighbors and the poor, kind to his many dark- 
ies, who thought their master better than any other man." 

He was living with his son-in-law, Benjamin Harrison, at 
time of his death.

Col. Benjamin* Cleveland, the hero of the battle of King's 
Mountain, one of the most prominent members of the Cleveland 
family mentioned in the History of the United States. Cleveland 
County (formed 1841), North Carolina, was named in his honor. 

Col. Benjamin* Cleveland may have been born on his father's 
plantation on Blue Run, Orange co., Va., for the Orange county 
Records show a deed for 600 acres of land from Prince Curtis to 
John Cleveland, 1734, about the commencement of the records. 
This was in all probability the plantation, and John^ may have 
removed to Orange co. even earlier. 

An excellent sketch of the life of Col. Benjamin Cleveland 
is given in the oration at the unveiling of his monument. Invi- 
tations were issued by Hon. Vannoy' Cleveland -I-16638: 

Fort Madison, S. C, July 18, 1887. 

As a member of the Cleveland Family you are cordially invited to be present at the 
unveiling of a monument to Colonel Ben Cleveland, who commanded a regiment of 
North and South Carolina troops at the battle of King's Mountain, Oct. 7, 1780. The 
monument has been erected at this place, where Colonel Cleveland is buried, by mem- 
bers of the Cleveland family of South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee, and will be 
unveiled July 28th. There will be an oration and appropriate ceremonies. 

Very respectfully, Vannoy Cleveland. 

From The Augusta^ Ga., Chronicle, July 2p, i88j : 



Greenville, S. C, July 28. — [Special.] — The monument 
erected at Fort Madison in honor of Col. Ben Cleveland, the 
distinguished soldier of revolutionary fame, was unveiled to-day 
with appropriate ceremonies in the presence of a large crowd, 
including many prominent citizens. The ceremonies began 
with an impressive prayer by Rev. Ellison Capers, after which 
the following ode, composed by Miss Mary Cleveland, was read 
by Gen. Capers : 


The marble shaft shall tell the story, 

For see ! It proudly bears a name, 
Recalling many deeds of glory, 

Glittering on the " Roll of Fame." 
Now as we read it war clouds "gather 

And cast their shadows o'er the land, 
Then we behold a noble hero 

As on he leads his gallant band. 
Through lone forest paths they wander, 

Up rough mountain sides they toil. 
Seeking out the bold marauder. 

And to him they give no quarter. 
For too well they know the doom 

Of mother, home, of wife and daughter, 
Where these Tory vandals roam. 

Well may they be struck with terror. 
When from some returning spy 

They hear the shout, " To horse ! Haste, comrades ! " 
Cleveland and his men are nigh, 

But rarely they escape his vengeance. 
As well his charger, true and tried. 

The noble Roebuck knows his master 
To victory or death will ride. 

See him now ! amidst the carnage, 
In a shower of leaden rain. 
■ • 'Tis the battle of King's Mountain 

Where bold Ferguson is slain, 

'Midst the awful roar of muskets, 
Pressing onward in his might. 

Inspiring fainter hearts with courage 
To reach the thickest of the fight. 

See him with that band of heroes — 
Williams, Shelby, and Sevier, 

McDowell and intrepid Campbell, — 


Men who never dream of fear, 

Leading where the flying bullets 
Fall like hailstones all around, 

And the blood of many comrades 
Drench in crimson streams the ground. 

Now the mountain seems volcanic, 
As one long and sulphurous blaze 

Flashing forth from base to summit. 
Lights the valley's misty haze. 

On they press and never falter 
'Till the bloody work is done ; 

'Till the foe is fairly vanquished 
And the battle fought and won. 

'Midst the brilliant constellation 
Of stars that gem our nation's sky 

Brightly shines the name of Cleveland 
With a light that cannot die. 

Gentle Peace on snowy pinion 
Crown our fair Southland to-day, 

Tho' late baptized in blood, we see her 
Proudly marching on her way. 

From the wave so dark and gory 
Venus-like she hath risen now, 

With a diadem of glory 
Resting on her lovely brow. 

True, she hath furled her conquered banner 
With a tender, reverent hand, 

Whilst the " Stars and Stripes " she is lifting 
Over all this sunny land, 

And loyally she will uphold them 
As she did in days gone by, 

When the British Lion sought to capture 
Yon Eagle, cleaving still the sky. 

For at our country's helm is standing 
A Patriot not a Partisan. 

He knows no North nor South, but equal 
Rights to all he gives — a brave, true man. 

Letters were read from President Cleveland, Governor Rich- 
ardson, ex-President Davis, and other prominent men. The 
unveiling was performed by six young girls of the Cleveland 
families. The monument is sixteen feet high, and on the pol- 
ished surface of the die is inscribed the following: " Erected by 
the members of the Cleveland family in South Carolina, Georgia, 
and Tennessee, in honor of Col. Benjamin Cleveland, a hero of 
the American revolution for independence, and a commander 
at the battle of King's Mountain." 

Under this are .the dates of the birth and death of Colonel 
Cleveland, "i 738-1806." 

Lieutenant-Governor Mauldin made appropriate remarks, 
and introduced Hon. Rufus Alexander Child, of Pickens, the 
orator of the occasion, who eloquently portrayed the life and 
character of Col. Cleveland as follows : 




Ladies and Gentlemen : 

One hundred years ago and our ancestors were engaged in 
that memorable struggle which resulted in the liberation of the 
American colonies and secured to us the blessings of self-gov- 
ernment and the heritage of republican institutions. America 
of that day as compared to the America of to-day was, to a 
great extent, a howling wilderness. The great West was un- 
known. From the banks of the beautiful Tugaloo to the far- 
away Rio Grande stretched a dense and unbroken forest. This 
vast territory was a terra incognita to the white man, and no 
human footfall was heard in its shaded solitudes save that of 
the native red man, who roamed over its hills and through its 
dark valleys and dense swamps as free as the wild antelope in 
its forest home. 

. . To-day the descendants and relatives of Col. Benjamin 
Cleveland unveil, with appropriate ceremonies, yon beautiful 
monument, and it is proper that something should be said of 
the character and services of such a man. Col. Cleveland was 
descended from an ancient family in the North Riding of York- 
shire, England, The family were originally called Clifflands or 
Clifflanders from the section of country in which they lived. 
In course of time, however, they came to be called Clevelands, 
the section of country also changing name along, with that of 
the family, and it is now also called Cleveland. In the latter 
part of the seventeenth century, probably about the year 1690, 
John Cleveland, father of our hero, emigrated with Alexander 
Cleveland, his father, from England to America, and settled on 
the since famous Bull Run creek, of Prince William county, Vir- 
ginia, where, on the 26th day of May, 1738, his distinguished 
son was born. In early boyhood Cleveland, like Daniel Boone, 
developed an unconquerable aversion to the tame pursuits of 
farm life, and, like Nimrod of old, became a "mighty hunter." 
For days at a time he would roam over the pathless forest in 
search of pelts and furs, meeting with many wild adventures 
and hair-breadth escapes. He could track down the wild beast 
almost equal to the bloodhound, and could all but scent the red 
man in the air. Thus in early life he became inured to all the 
trials and hardships of border life, became thoroughly initiated 
into the mysteries of woodcraft, and an expert in the arts of 
Indian warfare. Such a life developed in him a spirit of adven- 
ture and self-reliance, with qttickness of thought and rapidity 
of action in times of emergency and danger. These character- 
istics followed him through life, and were of great advantage to 
him in the stirring scenes in which he afterward played so 
prominent a part. In early manhood he married a Miss Mary 
Graves, of excellent family, and soon after took an active part 
in the French and Indian war, where he did good service and 
gave promise of the distinguished service he should afterward 
render his country. About the year 1769 young Cleveland, 
with his family, removed with his wife's father to North Caro- 
lina, and settled on Roaring Creek, an affluent of the Yadkin 
River, in what was then Rowan, afterward Surry, and what is 


now known as Wilkes county. Here he engaged in agriculture. 
Subsequently he located on the Round About tract on the Yad- 
kin. -Thi-ee years after he met his old friend, Daniel Boone, 
who was so enthusiastic in his description of the rich Kentucky 
country, with its cane and pea vine, and abounding in game of 
all kinds, that Cleveland was again seized with his spirit of 
adventure, and, with four companions, he started upon an ex- 
tensive hunt beyond the mountains. Crossing the Cumberland 
Gap, he was set upon by a roving band of Cherokees and plun- 
dered. He returned home by way of the Tugalo River valley, 
probably near where we now stand, and was so struck with its 
wild and picturesque beauty that he determined to remove here 
and settle. Another account tells us that Cleveland was pursu- 
ing a band of Indians and Tory outlaws, and that near this spot 
he overtook them. The Tugalo being full from recent rains, 
they could not cross the river, and a fight ensued, in which all 
the Indians and Tories were killed and buried in one grave in 
the fork of the Tugalo and Changa. However this may be, we 
know that Cleveland did visit this section before he settled here, 
whatever may have been the occasion of that visit. But his 
hunting days were soon to end, and the peaceful valley of the 
Yadkin was to be disturbed by contending forces and factions. 
The news of Colonial taxation had reached this secluded spot, 
and on the wings of the morning came the report of resounding 
arms froin the heights of Lexington and Bunker Hill. Cleve- 
land was among the first to enlist, entering as an ensign [2d N. C, 
reg., 1775] under Colonel Howe. It is impossible here to follow 
him through the eventful years and stirring scenes that followed. 
Suffice it to say that he was the hero of a hundred battles with 
the Tories, and took an important part in all the military move- 
ments and engagements in North Carolina and Upper and Mid- 
dle South Carolina. He rapidly gained promotion and distinc- 
tion, and was soon such a terror to the British that one hundred 
golden guineas were offered for his head. Of all his distin- 
guished services, perhaps that rendered at the battle of King's 
Mountain was the most important in its results. He had fought 
as bravely and as well before, but the defeat of the British and 
Tory forces at King's Mountain was so overwhelming and 
crushing that it completely destroyed the supremacy of the 
loyalists in all the interior of South Carolina except Ninety-Six, 
revived the drooping spirits of the patriots, and paved the way 
to Yorktown and final independence. Col. Patrick Ferguson, 
the marauder, had taken what he supposed to be a strong posi- 
tion on the summit of the mountain, and in confident expecta- 
tion of easy victory waited the approach of the little band of 
patriots led on by Cleveland, Col. Isaac Shelby, Col. William 
Campbell, and Colonel John Sevier. Reaching an open plain 
where the mountain stood out in bold relief, Cleveland, point- 
ing to its summit, exclaimed, " Men and patriots, yonder is your 
enemy and the enemy of mankind. I will show you to-day by 
my example how to fight. I can undertake no more, you will 
expect nothing less." A council of war was here held and the 
patriot forces arranged in four divisions, led respectively by 
Cleveland and Shelby on the left and Campbell and Sevier on 



the right. These arrangements completed, the several corps, 
led by their gallant commanders, started for the scene of con- 
flict. Many of the men threw aside their hats and tied their 
handkerchiefs around their heads that the limbs and brushes 
might not retard them in their charge up the mountain. Ram- 
sey, the North Carolina historian, says that Cleveland was the 
first to reach his position and engage the enemy, and that his 
men were the first to receive the shock of the enemy's charge. 
Others say that by reason of having to cross a marshy place, 
Cleveland was delayed a few minutes, and that Sevier was the 
first to engage the enemy. Be this as it may, Cleveland was 
there on time and in the hottest of the contest. Riding to the 
front of his column, sword in hand, he began the rapid ascent 
of the mountain, calling upon his men to follow. The enemy 
poured into the advancing line a galling fire, and Cleveland's 
noble charger, Roebuck, was shot from under him. Though a 
very large man, he pushed forward on foot, fighting like the 
veriest Roundhead of Cromwell until another horse was brought 
him from the rear. At this time the patriots were ascending 
the mountains from all sides, — Cleveland and Shelby from 
north and northeast, Campbell and Sevier from the south and 
southeast. The mountain appeared to be literally on fire. 
From the top, around the base, up the sides, was one continual 
rattle and roar and one unceasing blaze of fire. The shouts of 
the men, the rattle of the musketry, the loud commands and 
encouraging words of the officers, with ever and anon the shrill 
scream of Ferguson's silver whistle, high above the confusion 
and din of battle, was a scene never to be forgotten. Still the 
patriots pushed on. Presently the enemy's line began to waver 
and finally broke in confusion. Ferguson, seeing that all was 
lost, made a bold dash for liberty, but fell, pierced by a half 
dozen bullets. His gallant charger galloped off down the moun- 
tain side, but was captured, and, by general consent, voted the 
property of the heroic Cleveland. The victory was complete. 
Ferguson's entire army either killed or captured. This was a 
severe blow to the cause of the King and was the turning point 
in the war of the revolution. Lord Cornwallis stationed at 
Charlotte, N. C, and, awaiting Ferguson's return before com- 
mencing his march through North Carolina and Virginia, was 
crushed by the news of the defeat. He had confidently ex- 
pected a great victory, and then the speedy conquest of North 
Carolina and Virginia. This disaster changed all his plans. He 
at once began a retreat toward Ninety-Six, now the only point 
in the interior of South Carolina dominated by Tory and British 
influences. The news of the victory spread rapidly over the 
colonies, inspiring new life and energy into the waning cause 
of the patriots and reviving the drooping spirits of the heroes 
in all parts of the country. It was the silver lining to a dark 
cloud after a long night of plutonian darkness. And whilst we 
honor the name of every hero engaged in that important battle, 
and award to his memory the reverence due his distinguished 
service, no name is entitled to higher honors and no memory 
to profounder reverence than that of the brave, the noble, the 



gallant Cleveland. At the close of the Revolution he settled in 
the Tugalo valley, at the confluence of Tugalo and Chauga 
creeks, near the spot where we now stand, and, with the excep- 
tion of a few excursions against his troublesome neighbors — the 
Cherokees — on the west side of the Tugalo, never after 
engaged in active military service. But such a man as Cleve- 
land could not long remain in retirement. His State needed 
his services in another department, and he was accordingly 
called to the bench along with Gen. Andrew Pickens and Col. 
Robert Anderson, where he served for many years as judge of 
old Pendleton district, universally known, loved, honored, and 
respected. He made a faithful, fair-minded, and upright judge, 
and administered justice promptly and fairly. Naturally of a 
vigorous mind, and from habits formed through a long life of 
stirring events, he was quick to arrive at conclusions, and hence 
there was little cause to complain of the " law's delays." Com- 
bined with his promptness of decision was his accuracy of judg- 
ment and patient hearing. These indispensable qualities to a 
great or capable judge — patient hearing, clear jugdment, and 
prompt decision. He served his generation and his times faith- 
fully and well in all the relations of life, and in 1806, full of 
years and full of honors, he died suddenly one morning while 
at breakfast, leaving surviving him two sons and a daughter 
and many relatives. These have left behind them numerous 
descendants of the highest respectability, many of whom have 
filled high positions of honor and trust. 

Col. Cleveland was a great man in every sense of the word. 
Deprived of the advantages of early training, his strong natural 
endowments, finely balanced mind and vigorous brain raised 
him to distinction and fame. He would have been a conspicu- 
ous character anywhere and in any age. Of strong likes and 
dislikes, decided opinions and the courage of his convictions he 
was emphatically a leader of men. Quick to devise his schemes 
and rapid in the execution of them he was peculiarly fitted for 
the exciting and dangerous emergencies of border life and the 
troublous times in which he lived. Firm, and at times appar- 
ently harsh and severe, or even cruel, yet he really had a kind 
and loving heart, and was possessed of the noblest and most 
generous impulses. His apparent severity is to be attributed 
to the exciting times in which he lived and the dangerous class 
with which he had to deal. In short, brave, generous, and true, 
he properly ranks among the great spirits of the Revolution. 
Gen. John S. Preston, in a oration on the heroes of King's 
Mountain in 1855, says of him, "Cleveland, so brave and yet so 
gentle. As a soldier he ranked among the bravest of the brave. 
A strict disciplinarian, he was yet so kind and gentle that all 
his men loved him. The idol of his men, he was the pet aver- 
sion and terror of the British and Tories. Stubborn and per- 
sistent in defense, he was intrepid and fearless in charge. 
Deeply imbued with the justice of his cause and burning with 
patriotic fervor, almost equal to the religious fanaticism of 
Cromwell, like the illustrious Cromwell he possessed the happy 
faculty of imparting to his men a part of his own fiery nature 
and stubborn courage. In battle he was ever superb, cool and 


collected, or magnificent and dashing as occasion required. 
Our own poet, Paul H. Hayne, has sung of him : 

" ' Now, by God's grace ! ' cried Cleveland, 

My noble Colonel, he 
Resting to pick a Tory off 

Quite coolly on his knee. 
'Now, by God's grace, we have them. 

The snare is subtly set ; 
The game is bagged ; we have them 

Safe as pheasants in a net.' " 
As a friend, he was true and tried. No one ever had occa- 
sion to regret he ever trusted Cleveland. As true as steel and 
brave as a lion, he never deserted a friend in time of trouble or 
danger. When dangers thickened and foes multiplied he stuck 
closer than a brother. All his friends had implicit confidence 
in the integrity of his heart, the valor of his arm, and the al- 
most unerring certainty of his judgment. Where he was best 
known he was best loved, and where that judgment was often- 
est tried it was m.ost religiously trusted. It is related that on 
one occasion, during the absence of Col. Cleveland, a dangerous 
Tory horse thief was left with his sons, to be kept until their 
father's return. He remaining longer away than had been ex- 
pected, the sons fearing escape or rescue, appealed to their 
mother as to what should be done with the prisoner. Learn- 
ing the character of the man, and that the testimony against 
him was conclusive, she asked her sons what would their father 
do under the circumstances. "Hang him," replied the sons. 
"Then he must be hung," said the old lady, and it was accord- 
ingly done. This illustrates more forcibly than any language 
of mine the implicit confidence this life-long companion of 
Cleveland's had in the integrity of his judgment. Is it not 
fitting and proper that the memory of such a hero should be 
honored ? Not that these ceremonies can add one tittle to his 
fame or this feeble language of mine add to the glory of his 

Not that yonder granite shaft can add a single shade to the 
brightness of the halo that encircles his brow, or that the epi- 
itaph thereon written can shed new lustre on his historic deeds. 
No ; but by these ceremonies we show our appreciation of the 
heroic dead and teach the living that — 

" There is a tear for all who die 

A mourner o'er the humblest grave; 
But nations swell the funeral cry, 
And triumph shouts above the brave." 

King's Mountain took its name, says Memoirs of Maj.-Gen. 
William Moultrie, from one King who lived at the foot of the 
mount, and is in York co., S. C, and on the boundary of N. C. 
King's Mountain battle is immortalized in ballads and has the 
distinction of being the subject of a history, very thoroughly 
gotten up by an author who had very few equals in making re- 
searches. The work is a most important addition to our na- 
tional history and abounds in biography and family genealogy ; 
and is the result of many years' labor : King's Mountain and its

the remains of those who fell in the conflict was limited in at- 
tendance. In 1855 the 75th anniversary was appropriately cel- 
ebrated, with Gen. John S. Preston and Hon. George Bancroft 
as speakers. But it remained for Oct. 7, 1880, to eclipse the 
others in a Centennial celebration, when thousands of people 
.assembled, a civic and military display, address by Hon. John 
W. Daniel, poems by Paul H. Hayne and Mrs. Clara Dargan 
HcLean. Then followed the unveiling of a [new] massive gran- 
ite monument [erected near the southwest end, on the summit 
— the old monument is located at the foot of the northeast end 
of the mountain, and near where Col. Cleveland's command as- 
cended the mountain], having a base 18 ft. square, a height of 
28 ft. Inscriptions are cut on marble slabs. P. 458 — Robert 
Cleveland, a brother of Col. Cleveland, was a capt. at King's 
Mountain. His brother, Lt. Larkin*, was badly wounded while 
on the march. John, a son of Col. Cleveland, led his co. at 
King's Mountain. 

Col. Benjamin* Cleveland was by trade a house carpenter 
and builder ; after the Revolution, was the Surveyor of Wilkes 
•county. He became very corpulent. An impediment .n his 
speech prevented his entering political life. His will was^made 
in 1806.

ert Cleveland of Fauquier co.; 1775, Robert Cleveland to Holta- 
claw for rent of farm in Prince William co. 



He accompanied his brother, Col. Benjamin Cleveland, to 
N. C. Removed from Prince William co. 1778 and settled in 
Wilkes CO., on the Yadkin river, and owned land there. 

Capt. Roberf Cleveland was captain of a volunteer com- 
pany in Col. Benjamin* Cleveland's regiment at th6 battle of 
King's Mountain Oct. 7, 1780, and bore a most important part. 
A soldier of his corps, Dan White, used to say that to this brave 
captain was due the success of this battle ; for, in the middle of 
the conflict, when all were giving away before Ferguson's bay- 
onets, Capt. Cleveland alone stood firm and unmoved, sustained 
the charge until Col. Benjamin Cleveland could rally the flying 
troops and come to his assistance. He was accessory to many 
of the daring deeds of Col. Ben. April 15, 1781, he lived on 
Lewis' fork of the Yadkin, when he gathered some 30 good men 
and next morning rescued Col. Cleveland, a prisoner of the 
Tories, with whom they had a skirmish. Captain Robert spent 
the remainder of his life on the Yadkin river. He was promi- 
nent in the community, and was one of the 5 Clevelands (the 
others being Gov. Chauncey Fitch° Cleveland +1717, Hon. Eli-

Lieutenant Larkin^ Cleveland removed from Virginia 
about 1772-5 to South Carolina. He served under Col. Benja- 
min* Cleveland and was badly wounded while on the march to 
King's Mountain, some 10 miles from Crider's Fort, crossing 
the Brushy mountain to Lovelady's Ford of the Catawba. While 
crossing the river, Lt. Cleveland, with the advance, after hav- 
ing passed a defile, was shot by some concealed Tories under 
Capt. John Murray in the cliff, severely wounding him in the 
thigh. The Tories probably mistook him for Col. Cleveland, 
whom he very much resembled. He was kindly cared for by 
Mrs. McDowell, at Quaker Meadows. Though he in time re- 
covered, he was a cripple for life. He was a colonel in the N. 
C. militia. He removed to Franklin, Ga. He settled in Lincoln

ELI' CLEVELAND (Alexander^, Alexandera), d. April Ot May, 

1829, age between 95 and 100 years ; his wife d. about 1827. s. p. 
Mr. John W, Winn of St. Louis, Mo., was raised within one-half 
mile of Eli* Cleveland (who left a large estate), and has heard 
him preach often. 

Froi. Lewis Cass Woo/erywrites : "My grandfather, William Franklin Cleveland, 
speaking of his iincles, wrote this : ' Eli, .son of Alexander and brother of my father, re- 
moved from Virginia to Kentucky early in the settlement of the state, and built a fort 
near the place where Boone's Creek flows into the Kentucky river, in Fayette co., Ky., 
about 10 miles south of Lexington. He, in partnership with Gen. Greene Clay,' owned a 
ferry across the Ky. river many years.' Although it is not stated that he died here, still 
I am pretty sure he died there in Ky. prior to visit of Oliver Cleveland 1838." 

Land Office of Va. — Alexander Cleveland and wife, Sarah Ann, deeds Aug. 8, 1786, 
Eli Cleveland 740, 400, and 260 acres (same grant as made to Alexander by Patrick Henry

Eli and five brothers were in Revolution, and all at York- 
town surrender. " Likely Eli migrated to Ky. 1786."

render. He is mentioned Apr. 11, 1829, in the will of his 
brother, Eli Cleveland. 

Capt. W. R. Gains, Register of the Land Office of Va., writes Prof. Lezvis Cass'' 
Woolery : " I find 3 grants of land made by Patrick Henry, then Gov., of 400, 740, and 
260 acres each, in Fayette co., to Alexander Cleveland in 1785." " This Fayette co. most 
likely was now Fayette co., Ky. (then a part of Va.) which received a grant early as Dec. 
20, 1782." " Deeds Aug. 8, 1786, Alexander Cleveland and his wife, Sarah Ann, to Eli 
Cleveland, 740, 4cx3, and 260 acres." 


OLIVER* CLEVELAND (Alexandei-s, Alexanders, Alexanderl), b. 

about 1749, d. at Mrs. Elizabeth Mc Williams' residence in Mad- 
ison CO., Ky., Feb., or about spring of 1844, a. 95, m., name of 
wife not learned, she d. before 1843. s. p. Oliver* Cleveland 
and his 5 brothers were in Revolutionary war ; all 6 were pres- 
ent at the Yorktown surrender. Oliver* Cleveland is men- 
tioned in the Zand Records of Pritice William co., Va., Brentsville. 
He resided from 1775 in Fauquier co., Va., from 1789 in Spring 
Valley, Va., whence he made, in fall of 1838, a trip to Ky. in his 
carriage and visited Cleveland relatives. He wrote from Youngs 
Mills May 11, 1839, to Hon. Jesse Franklin* Cleveland, a genea- 
logical letter. He sold (1829) his fine farm of 600 acres to Rev. 
Porter' Cleveland +4751. So closely did these Clevelands re- 
semble each other that they were thought, by strangers, to be 
related, and Porter' named a son for him. He had a number of 
slaves. He retained a life interest in 200 acres, on which he 
remained to fall of 1843, when, for his wife's relatives he re- 
moved to Ky. 

Oliver* is a legatee in will of his brother Eli, Apr. 11, 1829.

Dr. Samuel Johnstone'' Cockerille writes : " We find by his 
papers that he (Capt. James* Cleveland) was held in the highest 
estimation of all officers. The endorsements of Hon. Thomas 
Jefferson, Gov. of Virginia, and Gen. George Washington, we 
value highly. His children were noted for being truthful, hon- 
est, and of large fortune."

William* Cleveland, for some time after his marriage, 
lived in the same house as his father. He was a Revolution 
soldier. He said he enlisted when he was 18 years old, at the 
beginning of the war, and that he and his 5 brothers were pres- 
ent at the surrender of the British forces at Yorktown, 1781. 
He knew Generals Washington and Lafayette. As private, 
was granted a pension, $40 per annum, Aug. 22, 1833, by Lewis 
Cass, Sec. of War. Fension Report, 183s, p. 130 — William Cleve- 
land, Va. militia, pensioned from Mar. 4, 1831. 

" Williana* Cleveland had considerable property, sold it for Continental money, 
which died on his hands, and left him poor. — Harriet Lfi (Mitchel) Messick, grand- 
daughter of William* Cleveland. 

" When grandfather [William* Cleveland] -went to the Revolutionary War he sold 
his Vis interest in his father's estate for $i,ooo in Continental money [then worth par], 
gave it to his mother (Margaret) to keep till he returned. When he came home he gave 
the whole of it for i gill of whiskey. All his brothers were well off. He sold to Gen. 
Hickman at the age of 19, and at the close of the war Hickman was uneasy for fear he 
would have to buy his land again, so he said to grandfather, 'Billie, what about that 
deed you made me ? You were under age.' Grandfather said, ' I am now of age, I will 
make you a new deed,' so he AH." —Margaret Wilson'^ (Cleveland) Louderback. 

After the Revolution he moved from Loudoun co., thence, 
1807, to Clarke co., and 15 years later to Pendleton co. Was 
the first and only Cleveland family in that county. William^ 
Cleveland was an educated man, and a schoolteacher, but in 
later life a farmer.

ism, sound sense, and unassuming deportment." A Jesse 
Franklin was Presidential Elector ist N. C. Dist. at the presi- 
dential elections eighth, 1817, and ninth, 1821; at both elections

Mrs. Sallie Rector "spoke of the devotion of Jesse Franklin 
to his mother, with whom Mrs. Rector lived. During her sick- 
ness he came everyday 12 miles to assist her. It was a rare 
instance of filial affection. He was a great and good man, and 
deserved all the honors bestowed on him."

Capt. Jeremiah Cleveland moved from Asheville 1804, and 
became one of the first residents of Greenville, merchant ; left 
his children 20,000 acres in S. C. and Tenn., etc. From his 
obituary in Greenville Mountaineer, O. H. Wells, Ed., Dec. 184^. — 

The Late Mr. Jeremiah Cleveland. 

When one who has filled so large a space in a community 
as the venerable and excellent man whose name heads this 
article has so long done in ours descends to the tomb, it is fit 
that notice should be taken of his life. Born in Va., his father 
removed when he was very young to Wilkes co. The family 
was one of the most respectable in that part of the country. 
The celebrated Col. Benjamin Cleveland of King's Mountain 
was his uncle, and his father, Capt. Robert Cleveland, com- 
manded a CO. in that memorable engagement. At a very early 
age the subject of this notice left his father's house with no 
other patrimony than a vigorous form and those stern princi- 
ples of honesty and economy which had been so carefully in- 
stilled into his youthful mind. He found employment with the 
late Andrew Erwin and James Patton, extensively engaged in 
commercial pursuits in the upper part of N, C. The remarka- 


ble qualities of the young man soon attracted the attention of 
those sagacious and worthy men, and he was very soon taken 
into copartnership with them in a store which they established 
in this place in 1814, under the exclusive management of Mr. 
Cleveland, and which he continued until 1826, when, in the 
full tide of success, he closed his mercantile operations. He 
had sons grown who were capable of managing it. He wisely 
considered that he had an abundant competency. Since that 
time he has engaged himself in the superintendence of his 
farms, the management of his capital, and in reading and con- 
versation. Few men have read more in the last 20 years and 
none with more profit. The author of this small tribute to his 
memory was quite a child when Mr. Cleveland first settled in 
Greenville, and has known him intimately ever since ; and he 
can with entire truth say, that he never knew him to do an un- 
worthy action, nor to utter an unworthy sentiment; in the course 
of a very extensive business of 40 years that none has ever 
charged him with even a harsh or ungenerous action ; nor has 
an instance occurred of his sacrificing the property of any of 
his numerous debtors ; nor is it believed of his purchasing 
property at a sacrifice ; it was his principle not to do so. The 
"writer has known many instances where he purchased prop- 
erty at sheriffs' sale, and years afterwards sold it for five 
times as much as he gave for it, and he has retained only his 
debt and interest and paid over to the person, as whose prop- 
erty it was sold, the balance. Very many instances of a simi- 
lar benevolence and generosity have come within the knowl- 
edge of the writer. He was the last man in the world to speak 
of his own good deeds. Never was there any one of whom it 
could be more truly said that he — 

" Did good by stealth and blushed to find it fame." 
He was one of the oldest of his father's family, all of whom are 
prosperous and respectable men, and the same may be said of 
all the clerks who were in his service ; all of whom were as- 
sisted by him if they needed funds ; but they were much more 
indebted for their success to those habits of industry, economy, 
and integrity which he taught them. He was distinguished for 
accurate judgment, integrity, and firmness, — judgment to per- 
ceive the path of duty, integrity that cannot be tempted, and 
firmness that cannot be intimidated from pursuing it. Such 
was this wise and good man who has, at the advanced age of 
71 years, left a chasm in our society not soon to be filled up. 
This sketch of his character is a small tribute from one who, 
from his childhood, has known and respected him.

Carolina Spartan, 18^1 — 

Jesse Cleveland. 

A large portion of our last week's edition having passed 
through the press previous to his lamented death, we were only- 
able to publish in that issue a hurried notice of the event. It 
is not our design to write a lengthened obituary, for the remi- 
niscences of his virtuous life are impressed on the recollections 
of all. His epitaph is already written by good examples of the 
gentlemanly deportment of nearly half a century. For more 
than forty years of his well-spent life he was engaged in mer- 
cantile pursuits in this town. He never engaged in politics so 
as to alienate his friends or embitter the feelings of others, but 
evinced in his whole life all those characteristics which adorn 
the life of a plain, unpretending man and good citizen. Sim- 
plicity of manners, benignity of feeling, and a rigid honesty in 
his business transactions were his ruling and active traits. Mr. 
Cleveland will be long and affectionately remembered. 

Greenville Daily News, A. B. Williams, Ed., Jan. 26, 1884 — 

Mrs. Mary B. Cleveland. (Special to Augusta Chronicle), At- 
lanta, Jan. 24. There has been recently in Greenville the death 
of a lady, one of the old landmarks of Carolina, whose removal is 
as notable an event as the decease of Mrs. ex-Gov. Herschel V. 
Johnson. This lady was Mrs. Mary Blossingame Cleveland of 
Spartanburg. Her father was Gen. John Blossingame, who 
was raised on Pedee river, S. C, located in Greenville, and m. 
Mar. 23, 1794, Miss Elizabeth Smith Easley from Va. He was 
made general 181 2, was very popular, and a member of the 
Legislature. The union of Jesse Cleveland and Mary Blossin- 
game was a long and happy one, as well as a mating of the best 
blood of Carolina. Mrs. Cleveland was a noble Christian 
woman, revered and loved by all. In her last moments her 
mind wandered to the past and her old homestead in Spartan- 
burg, and she would often say, " I ought to go back and look 
after my poor negroes ; I know they need me."

German Lester, he d. n. Florence, Ala. Ch.: German Wright^ 
Lester, to whom Larkin* Cleveland, by deed Apr. 3, 1814, gives 
a negro boy, Moris, aged i year. 

German Lester and Fountain Lester were among the first 
settlers of Giles co., Tenn. German Lester came in 1809, prob- 
ably the latter part of the year. Giles county was established 
1809. The first county court was held the third Monday in 
Feb., 1810, when he was, by the court, elected clerk of the 
county court. He improved the place upon which Maj. B. F. 
Carter now resides. The first house he built was a large brick 
smoke house. His wife had not then come to Pulaski, Giles co., 
Tenn., to reside. It was contemplated that she would wait 
until a residence was erected, but the inconvenience to him was 
such that she proposed to live in the smoke house until a house 
could be built, and lived in it several months. He was a com- 
petent clerk. He had considerable experience in the duties of 
the office before he came to the county. It is said he had a 
regular training under James Ewing (grandfather of Hon. Ed- 
win H. Ewing), who was clerk of court in Davidson co. Mr. 
Lester held the office until 1836, when the officers elected under 
the constitution of 1834 were inducted into office. He accumu- 
lated a handsome estate, but from 1835 to 1838 he became en- 
dorser for friends who failed. Was one of the earliest and most 
prominent members of the Baptist church in Pulaski. — From 
McCollum's MS. History of Giles Co., in Tenn. State Historical 
Soc. Library, printed in Giles Co. Record, Mar. 8, June 28, i8gs — 
Early Settlers. 

German Lester was married 4 or 5 times.

Xavier, Havta, Sevier ancestry : 1 Sevier, b. Paris, Prance (the family name 

Xavier now had become Sevier), Huguenot, fled from Paris because of persecution and 
St. Bartholomew's massacre, [the name Huguenot (origin of the name not positively 
known, although differing writers claim that it is derived from Hugues, a notable here- 
tic, i6th century, or from Hugo or Hugon, or from the German "Eidgenossen," or from 
"Hue nos," which words begin an early public document of French Protestantism, or 
from Hugh Capet, founder of the Capetian dynasty and king of France, A. D. 987) was 
first applied, as a political nickname, to the French Protestants, 1560. Charles IX of 
France pretended to make overtures of peace to the Huguenots, and at the marriage of 
his sister Margaret to Henry IV of Navarre, he invited Coligny and other Protestant 
leaders to the wedding ceremonies. Having treated them at court with simulated favor, 
he managed to lull their suspicions, and the result of his machinations was the general 
massacre of the Protestants on St. Bartholomew's day, Aug. 25, 1572. In 1598, Henry IV 
issued the Edict of Nantes, which restored toleration and defined the position of the 
Reformed Church. The revocation of the Edict of Nantes, Oct. 22, 1685, ^7 Louis XIV,

From obituary of Mrs. Caroline^ (Cleveland) Choice : 
Greenville Daily News, May .27, 1887 — 


Died in Greenville, on Tuesday, the 17th of May, 1887, in the seventy-seventh year of 
her age, Mrs. Caroline Choice, wife of the late William Choice, Esq. 

The subject of this sketch, although but little known to the younger portion of our 
community outside of the circle of her personal friends and relatives, has for many 
years, during the active portion of her liie, and the earliest history of (ireenville, filled 
an important and conspicuous place in its best society. 

Born on the 2d of February, 1811, but one square removed from the spot where she 
died, she has been identified with Greenville three-fourths of a century, a period com- 
prising all its phases of growth, as hamlet, village, town, and city. 

Her father, Capt. Jeremiah Cleveland, is well remembered by our older citizens. 
He was among the earliest settlers of this busy, stirring city. Among men he was ac- 
counted a strong man in his day and generation, and his stern virtues were typical of 
the times in which he lived. Here he passed his long and active life, known of all men 
for his high character, strong intellect, and pure and unsullied record as a citizen and 
man of business. By force of character and application he amassed, even at that early 
day, one of the largest estates in the upper part of the State. 

In the ojjinion of the writer, of whom she was a lifelong and valued friend, Mrs. 
Choice inherited much of the strength of mind and sterling qualities of her father. The 
contemplation of these characteristics for a few moments by the rising generation, many 

of whom have already taken her place in the active duties of life, cannot fail to inspire 

in their bosoms feelings of sincerest respect and generous emulation. Independence, 
truth, integrity, love of justice, and devotion to duty, were prominent and controlling 
traits of her character. To these were added the softer graces of charity, unstinted hos- 
pitality, kindness of heart, and beneficence. Toward the humble and the lowly were 
these truly Christian virtues most constantly exercised, and many of these would bear 
witness to-day that for long years their lives have been cheered and their hopes renewed 
by the refreshing dews of her continuous bounty. It was the blessing of her old age, 
and doubtless the greatest source of her own happiness, that she was thus able to con- 
tribute to the happiness of others. To a liberal education and a natural refinement of 
manner was added the culture which comes of travel, and a wide range of reading, 
always from carefully selected authors, causing her companionship to be alike interest- 
ing and instructive to those around her. 

Having no children of their own, and in entire accord with the wishes of her late 
husband, Capt. William Choice, she took upon herself at different periods of her life the 
entire charge of several of her nieces and nephews, rearing them from infancy, and be- 
stowing upon them the priceless advantages of a liberal education. Among those 
brought thus near to her by ties of blood and almost filial association, is our townsman, 
William C. Cleveland. 

By her death a noble, high-minded, and conscientious woman has passed away, and 
the good deeds of a long life will follow her. 

She now rests quietly beside him with whom she joined her young life when she was 
but twenty-one years of age, and for whom she entertained until her latest breath the 
kindest veneration and most tender regard. Under the shadow of the Episcopal Church, 
of which she was a lifelong member, and toward the building of which they larggly 
contributed, both of them now sleeis. 

Another link is broken connecting the past with the present of Greenville, and we 
who are left may well pause at their graves and study the lesson of their lives, resolving 
to emulate their virtues, that we, too, at the close may offer to those coming after us the 
example of well rounded lives •, the record of which is richly stored with duties well per- 
formed, and obligations well fulfilled. S. S. C. 

From The Herald : 


When an old, prominent, and most worthy citizen of the community departs this life 
it is right and proper and respectful to his memory that something more should be said 
of him than simply the announcement of his death. 

William Choice was a native of Greenville District, and, at the time of his death, 
perhaps the oldest native born citizen in the District. His father, William Choice, Sr., 
was a substantial farmer, and one of the earliest settlers in Greenville. When the Dis- 
trict was first organized, and a county seat to be selected, William Choice, Sr., was 
appointed one of the Commissioners to locate the Court House. He lived to an advanced 
age, and was greatly respected by all his neighbors. He had a large family of children, 
and most of them moved to Georgia in the lifetime of their father. 

William Choice, the subject of this sketch, after completing his English education at 
the ordinary schools of the country, was sent to the Pendleton Academy to complete his 
classical education, which had been commenced under the tuition of Dr. Thomas Aus- 


tin, a venerable citizen of the District, still living: ! He then commenced the study of 
law in the office of Mr. Tillinghast, who then resided in Greenville, and was afterwards 
elected Comptroller General, andmoved to Columbia. 

In due course of time Mr. Choice was admitted to the bar, and commenced the prac- 
tice of his profession at Greenville Court House in his native district. He was studious 
and inaustrious, attentive to his business, and punctual in the discharge of all his duties 
as a lawyer. There was no neglect or delay in the business entrusted to him. He soon 
acquired the reputation of being; the best and most prompt collecting lawyer in the Circuit. 
He never kept his client's money on hand after he had an opportunity of paying it over. 
Soon he acquired a large and lucrative practice. Judge Earle, at that time Solicitor of 
the Western Circuit, formed a partnership with him, which continued to the mutual 
advantage of both of them, till Earle was elected one of the Circuit Judges of the State. 
There was then a pa,rtnership formed between him and Judge Wardlaw, which continued 
for many years. Soon after the election of J^idge Wardlaw to the bench Mr. Choice 
retired from the bar with a fortune most honestly made by industry and economy. 

Mr. Choice was elected the first Commissioner in Equity for Greenville District, and 
continued to discharge the duties of the office for a great number of years. No one ever 
filled this important office in South Carolina more faithfully than he did. His accounts 
were all kept with scrupulous accuracy, so that every one could understand them who 
looked at them. He wrote a beautiful hand, and was a first rate accountant. The chan- 
cellors invariably complimented him at court for the neatness of his dockets, the correct- 
ness of his reports, and the promptness with which he paid over the funds in his hands. 

Having accumulated a large fortune by his profession, he was not vain of it, nor did 
he make any show of his wealth. He was kind-hearted and charitable, but his charity 
was like his' wealth — not intended for display. It is known to some that he spent large 
sums — several thousand dollars — in the education of his and his wife's relations. In 
one instance which accidentally came to the knowledge of the writer, he sent a young 
man, a distant relation of his wife, whom he had never seen, five hundred dollars, to 
complete his education. This y;oung gentleman had graduated at the South Carolina 
College with the first honors of his class, and was of brilliant promise. He had exhausted 
his patrimonjr, and could not pursue his intended study of the law. Mr. Choice heard of 
him and his situation and sent him five hundred dollars to enable him to complete his 
legal studies ; but death claimed him as his victim, and his studies were never completed. 

Mr. Choice was a man of grreat firmness and sincerity of character. He formed his 
own opinions and 'could not be swerved from them. No one ever charged him with a 
want of sincerity. He never deceived any one, but was always frank and open in every 
thing he did. His enmities, as well as his friendships, were known to the world. He 
was a most cordial and genial companion with his friends, and he delighted in their 
society. His conversation was always interesting. He had read a good deal, and had 
traveled all over the United States. He possessed a very_ observing mind and a fine 
memory. His remarks were always wise and judicious. His mind was practical and his 
judgment wise and good on all subjects. 

The best evidence that could be adduced of William Choice's kindness, charity, and 
goodness was shown at his funeral. His family wished to have a private one, knowing 
that he who had eschewed all pomp and show in life would not desire a public display in 
death. But his tenants, his former slaves, his domestics, and his near neighbors insisted 
on attending his funeral. He treated his slaves all his life as if they had been his chil- 
dren, and when they were emancipated he provided them all with comfortable homes. 

Like most men of marked character as for firmness, sincerity, frankness, integrity, 
Mr. Choice was strong in his friendships and bitter in his enmities. He was not one or 
those characters known as " all things to all men." If he liked you he showed it, and if 
he did not there was no concealment about it. In politics he was a warm partisan, a 
nullifier and secessionist, and when the war came on he invested thirty or forty thousand 
dollars in Confederate bonds. This was all lost,' of course, and his slaves, worth forty or 
fifty thousand dollars, were emancipated. He lost largely, too, by his private debtors and 
stocks, and still he died possessed of an ample fortune, all accumulated by his industry, 
energy, and prudence. 

For several years Mr. Choice's health has been bad, but his mind was as clear in his 
eightieth year as it ever had been. He left a widow, many relatives, and numerous 
friends to lament his loss and cherish his memory. B. F. P. [Gov. Benjamin P. Perry.]

From a fublished Obituary Notice : 

Few better women than Mrs. Poole have ever lived. Her kindness and cordiality of 
manner expressed the nobility of her character, and she made warm friends of all who 
came in contact with her, and retained their affections always. ' Her heart was full of 
charity and love for fellow creatures, and the poor and unfortunate of two s;enerations 
have cause to remember her benefactions and attentions with love and gratitude. Her 
old age was peaceful and pleasant, full of good work and lighted by the memory of 
kindly deeds and the blessings of the many who had cause to bless her. During her 
latter years she has given charity much of her time and attention and was the admira- 
tion of all who visit that part of the city, and has doubtless given pleasure to many 
thousands of people who knew nothing of the owner.

Mr. James Harvey' Cleveland was highly esteemed and 
much beloved. The following and other obituary notices ap- 
peared in the newspapers throughout the U. S. at the time of 
his decease. From T/ie Greenville Daily News, Sept. 6, z8g2 [writ- 
ten by the Editor, Mr. Alfred Brockenborough Williams]: 


By the death of James Harvey Cleveland Greenville county has lost one of her most 
honored landmarks. He had lived all his long life here without a shadow of reproach, 
holding the reverence, confidence, and affection of his neighbors. Hospitality and be- 
nevolence were not duties with him, but were as natural as his breathing, and inex- 
haustible. A man of pure and upright life, he had endless patience and compassion for 
the weaknesses and faults of his fellow men. None were so depraved as to be beneath 
the scope of his kindly pity and ready help ; no wickedness could outstretch his wide 
charity. When he could not speak good of others he was silent. Where he could not 
give his respect or friendship, kindly recognition of the brotherhood of man extended, 
and his hand was ever ready to make felt in living deeds the warmth of his heart. 

Few men have been so blest as to look back upon a life as blameless, as happy, and 
as useful as his. He never mingled much in public affairs, and vexed his soul little with 
the contentions of men or the battles of the world. Far from the madding crowd's igno- 
ble strife, he kept the even tenor of his way, content to do his duty as man, citizen, and 
neighbor. Ostentation was contrary to his nature. Simplicity and modesty character- 


ized him always, and made his benevolence and his life doubly beautiful. He was as 
unassuming as the most shrinking child, and had the perfect poise and self-control of 
the strongest man. In movements for the public welfare he was always among the fore- 
most and most generous in action, the most backward in accepting praise or reward. 
He did his full duty always, and always as if it would not have been possible for him or 
any man to have done otherwise. 

In these times of rush and hurly-burly and false purposes and base standards and 
loud seltishness and false pretence, it is refreshing and comforting to find a life like that 
of Mr. Cleveland's — pure, simple, gentle, kindly, and modest — a life marked by duties 
and good works well done, without proclamations of the doing or demands for recogni- 
tion, by far-reaching charitj; for which no trumpets were sounded, by a very sweet and 
very practical Christianity, in which there was no praying at the street corners or obtru- 
sion of his own righteousness. 

There are many honored graves in South Carolina, marked and unmarked, many 
places where high and noble and true men sleep. In none of them will there rest a 
nobler, kindlier gentleman, a higher or more manly man than he who will be buried to- 
day near the blue mountains he loved. He lived gentle, generous, and honest ; hs will 
sleep peacefully : and when the time comes he will rise in peace to go before the Creator 
whose will he did well, whose spirit of love and compassion he faithfully illustrated in 
his life. 

From Enter pi-ise and Mountaitteer, Greenville, S. C, Sept. 7, i8p2 : 


On last Sunday, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Hamlin Beattie, of this city, 
Mr. James Harvey Cleveland breathed his last. 

One of the old landmarks of Greenville County, and one whose name has, during his 
life of more than three score years and ten, been associated with Greenville, has passed 
away. A son of Capt. Jeremiah Cleveland, who was one of the pioneer settlers of this 
county, and a descendant of the Clevelands who fought at King s Mountain, J. Harvey 
Cleveland was born in Greenville on December i, 1815. His early life was Sfjent at the 
place of his birth until, about 1838, upon his marriage to Miss Mary L. Williams, he 
moved to Cleveland's mill, about four miles above Marietta, and entered upon his life's 
work of farming. Subsequently, upon the death of Dr. Williams, his wife's father, he 
purchased from that estate the place upon which he was living at the time of his death, 
and to ■which he gave the name of Marietta. He removed for a season back to his birth- 
place for the purpose of educating his children, of whom there were given to him six. 
Of this number there survive him five, three daughters and two son.i: Mrs. William 
Wilkins, Mrs. H. Beattie, Mrs. Lizzie Cleveland, Hon. R. Mays Cleveland, and Mr. Jesse 
F. Cleveland. The other daughter, Mrs. J. T. Williams, preceded her father several 
years ago. 

Mr. Cleveland was himself the youngest of eight children, having had four brothers 
and three sisters, all of whom he had survived for several years. In his death, there- 
fore, passes away the last of his father's family. Some of his brothers migrated to 
Georgia and Tennessee, and one of them, Hon. Jesse F. Cleveland, was at one time the 
Congressman from the Atlanta District. The deceased was also an uncle of Mr. W. C. 
Cleveland, of our city, and had a very large circle of relatives and friends in this imme- 
diate neighborhood. 

At the commencement of the war between the States, Mr. Cleveland enlisted as a 
private in the Brooks Troop, and was attached to the Hampton Legion, but after a ser- 
vice of somewhat more than a year he was discharged, being exempt from duty by rea- 
son of his age. 

Mr. Cleveland studied in his youth civil engineering, but possessing by inheritance 
a competency he never made a pursuit of his profession. Possessed of large landed 
estates, he gave his attention almost entirely to their management, and prosperity at- 
tended his efforts. For over forty years he had resided at Marietta, passing his life in 
the enjoyment of home pleasures and farming pursuits, wherein was his chief delight. 
His life was uneventful Of gentle disposition, and far more fond of domestic pursuits 
than the turmoil of public life, Mr. Cleveland never sought or seemed to desire office. 
The family circle and familiar intercourse with friends were congenial to him, and his 
affectionate, cheerful disposition made him particularly welcome and happy in these 
spheres. Kind and sympathetic, he was willing and ready to give aid when needed ; 
and of an amiable, even-tempered frame of mind, he never wittingly injured or need- 
lessly offended any one. Of generous nature, he delighted in hospitality, and although 
a patriarch in years and appearance, his heart was ever warm with the glow of youth. 
We would imagine that nothing would be more enjoyed by hi.m than the thronging of 
relatives and friends within the precincts of hospitable old "Antiquity," as his home 
was called. 

He spent his life in trying to do right, and felt no fears when the end was near. It 
was during last spring that he remarked that he knew his days must needs be few on 
earth, but he felt no concern ; that God had been good to him, and he was in no wise 
troubled as to the future welfare of his children or family ; and almost his last words 
were. " God is love." 

The immediate cause of his death was jaundice, to which he at last succumbed after 
an illness of about six weeks. He had come down from Marietta and, as stated, was so- 
journing with his daughter, Mrs. Hamlin Beattie, when he died. 

The funeral services were held on yesterday at Christ Church, in this city, and the 
remains were afterwards taken to Marietta for interment.

Greenville, S. C, September 4, 1892. 

" 'God is love,' and hath been good to me," 
In his last hours on earth he softly said, 

As in that quiet room, on bended knee. 
Loved ones were gathered 'round his dying bed. 

" God is love ! " No other trust had he, 
But that for hira the blessed Saviour died ; 

A perfect sense of pardon, full and free, 
Sealed by the blood that flowed from His dear side. 

" God is love ! " He urged no claim but this. 
As through death's lonely valley, dark and drear, 

He journeyed onward to a land of bliss, 
Unfettered by a single doubt or fear. 

The last of his father's house below, 
To him on high a welcome now is given- ; 

Where the broken wreath is bound, we know. 
And the severed chain linked in heaven. 

Ah, love hath ruled his life, dav by day ; 

Love to his neighbor, and to "God above ; 
And through the gates of pearl he hath passed away, 

To ioin the angel chorus, " God is love ! "

John Blossingame" Cleveland. From his Obituary — Was 
the oldest native citizen of our town. He received a practical 
training for mercantile profession, and upon attaining majority 
became a partner in the house which his father conducted from 
the early settlement of the place. After the death of his father, 
he continued the business until a few months ago, his declining 
health admonished him of the danger of confining himself so 
closely, when he withdrew and was devoting himself to agricul- 
ture. In mercantile transactions of 30 years he had been 
brought into contact with the people of our district. He en- 
joyed the confidence and esteem of a very large number. He 
possessed a sound judgment, clear perceptions of right, marked 
equanimity of temper. These qualities, with a quiet disposi- 
tion, made him the chosen arbiter of more differences between 
neighbors than any other man in the district. His influence 
was always a power. For many years he was the chosen In- 
tendant of the Town, in which position he gave such general 
satisfaction that it was only necessary to show that he would 
serve to have him elected. After serving several terms he re- 
fused to be a candidate.

Dr. Robert Easley° Cleveland. From his Obituary — His 
education was obtained in the town schools. After' reading 
medicine, he took his diploma at Charleston, S. C, Medical Col- 
lege, 1843. He at once began the practice of medicine, and 
took rank amongst the first physicians of the co. If he had 
given up all other kinds of business and devoted his time en- 
tirely to his profession, no doubt he could have become emin- 
ent. He continued practice of medicine until close of the war. 
Early in life he began to deal in real estate, and there his fine 
judgment served a good purpose. He had unbounded faith in 
the future of our town and co., and desired no better invest- 
ments than could be found at home. His activity in business 
matters caused him to take rank among the leading business 
men of the place. His desire was to see his town become a 
prosperous place. His love for old Spartanburg was very 
strong, and nothing could have induced him to , leave it. A 
plain man, quick to take the part of a friend. He knew nearly 
all the older men of the co., and he was accustomed, as he saw 
them driving into town, to give many interesting incidents 
illustrating life as it was 40 years ago. He will be much 
missed on the street, at our public meetings. He took a special 
interest in important cases in court. A prominent lawyer says 
his opinion of men and cases was very remarkable. He had a 
fine judicial mind. His suggestions were often valuable to 
lawyers managing suits. His last illness lasted about 3 weeks ; 
was buried Sunday [26th], Mr. Vess, pastor of Baptist Church, 
conducting the funeral services. A large crowd were in attend- 
ance, and a noticeable feature was the great number of colored 
people in the procession.

same time owns and operates a fine 320-acre farm, 4 miles from 
Rome, principally cotton ; is proprietor of Montsana mountain, 
on top a i2-acre vineyard of fruit and grapes, in James co., 
Tenn., n. Ooltewah ; and of a 50-acre orange grove n. Brooks- 
ville, Fla. The following from a newspaper, 1884: 



A few days ago we visited the orange grove at Buena Vista located on one of Her- 
nando's famous hills, just ij^ miles S. E. of Brooksville, and in plain view from the 
court house square. 

The first thing that attracts the attention after leaving town is the broad expanse of 
the Choocoochatta prairie, now like an immense emerald in a setting of massive live 
oaks draped in long gray moss, but when overflowed is a beautiful sheet of water, 
sparkling under the stmlight like myriads of jewels. Wnen this prairie is overflowed 
the scene often changes like magic — away off in the southeast corner is a deep sink that 
connects with a subterranean channel that from some unknown cause opens, and in a 
few hours the prairie is dry. As there was no water on the ground we drove directly 
across this magnificent natural pasture, stopping now and then to wait on our friend, 
who must needs take an occasional pop at some of the thousands of birds and ducks, or 
stray aligators that were prospecting some of the sinks for a late dinner ; we'd have 
iieen there yet if the birds had not risen and sailed away out of reach as the echo of the 
shots were reverberating around the amphitheatre.- The 'gators also knew the signal 
indicated a sore head or black eye for them, so left incontinently in a wild hunt for the 
hole the water goes out at. There being nothing more to keep us we resumed our search 
for Buena Vista. Soon something white, like a bow of promise, began to loom up in the 
distance, but not liking to display our ignorance we held our peace and waited develop- 
ments ; as we drew near the thing assumed the shape and form of an immense gate — 
the biggest seen since the one old Noah opened when he let out all the living creatures 
left over from the flood. It was immense, gigantic, a — well, when our friend took his 
lazy eyes off the lazier cattle grazing on the prairie, he found us stupified, but still hang- 
ing on to the ragged edge of a knowing look, we didn't want to admit that we were as- 
tonished at anything ; but you are not to tell this to anyone, it's strictly confidential. 
While our friend was opening the ponderous shutters, we took in the grand arch bearing 
the words: "Buena Vista Grove," in large, shaded letters, and just -underneath them 
the motto, "Finis coronat o/»z/j" — the end crowns the work. We got through the gate 
and found other inscriptions, but as we were going ahead up-hill we concluded they 
were admonitions to keep off the grass, not to pull the flowers, don't deface the statuary, 
or something of that sort, so, rather than display our ignorance by stopping, we let our 
friend drive on, resolved to see it out some other time. All around we saw that a master 
hand and head was directing operations, as the land was in a fine state of cultivation, 
and the orange trees stretching in every direction were in splendid condition. When 
we had climbed about two-thirds of the way up, our friend stopped to show us a curi- 
osity; it proved to be a fine spring of water, cool and fresh, and never failing. Truly, it 
was a curious freak, for here it gushed out of the hillside full one hundred feet above 
the prairie or water level. Satisfied with our inspection and assured that there was yet 
more to be seen and that it was only a few hundred yards to the top, we resumed our 
seat and traveled on up to the front of the tenement house, on top of one of the highest 
hills in the county, and about as near heaven as the average editor generally gets. Sit- 
ting in our buggy on top of this hill the country around spread out like a panorama. 
Brooksville was in plain view, we could see the people in town as they walked the streets. 
'Turning our eyes to the northward, we could see Judge Mayo's, 8 miles off ; a few miles 
nearer was Dr. Snow's place. Mount Airy, and a nun-fber of other notable places ; to the 
eastward, 3 miles off, was Anna Dale grove, which looked as though it was on anothe 
hill equally as high as the one we stood on ; south and west was the prairie with its 
herds of cattle, horses, sheep, and hogs, and just over on the other side was South Brooks- 
ville, with its ha:ndsome residences and thrifty young groves and healthy, happy people; 
a little to the left was the residence and beautiful grove of Capt. Wm. Hope, one of the 
first white men to settle in Hernando county, and just a littte nearer was the grove of 
his son, W. Esten Hope ; it is just seven years old, and is now showing fruit for the first 
time. We had barely finished our inspection when we were recalled to our whereabouts 
by a harmonious sound that unerringly tells the Southerner there is a well fed, comfort- 
ably clad "nigger" around — a jolly Southern cornfield hoeing song — and sure enough,. 



there they were just over the hill, some twenty-five of the best humored fellows, hoe in 
hand, digrging^ and singing away for dear life. We had always heard that the Major 
worked things blue that staid around him, and this singing father surprised us, but 
there it was and considerably modified the awe in which we had stood of him — fearing 
that in his pushing business way he might think our visit a trespass on his valuable 
time ; but our friend had been here before and didn't stand a bit in awe of him, so began 
yelling at the top of his voice to attract the Major's attention, and he came up smiling 
and extending an old-fashioned Southern plantation welcome, expressing his pleasure 
at seeing us, but he added : "Gentlemen, if you expect to tramp around here much you 
should have provided yourselves each with a pair of Bay State shoes, as most any others 
are liable to rip and let your feet get wet. " 

The Major told ns that he had enclosed 56^^ acres of land, which he bought two years 
ago for three thousand dollars, this summer he set out on it about 2,800 orange trees, and 
would not take $10,000 for the property. Three years ago he purchased the Anna Dale 
property for $4,000, and this, under his vigorous management, has doubled its value. 
The Major was so hospitable and pleasant that we could not leave as soon as we pro- 
posed, and were compelled to postpone our visit to Anna Dale until some day in the 
near future — at any rate before the oranges and bananas are all gone. We had a sample 
of the bananas and propose trying them again.

father, Deacon Carter W. Cleveland (deceased), was one of the most prominent citi- 
zens of that county, and one of the most influential laymen in the state. He was wealthy, 
intelligent, wise, and upright. Dr. Cleveland grad. when a youth in the University of 
Ala. [Tuscaloosa, Ala.], and in medicine in city of N. Y., and arose to distinction as a 
physician. He abandoned that profession and entered the ministry in i86g, was called 
immediately to Carlowville; soon after and for several years his time as pastor was 
divided betw. thatjplace, Snow Hill [Wilcox co., Ala.], and Pleasant Hill — 3 village 
churches in refined and intelligent communities — where most gratifying results attended 
his ministrations. Some 4 years since [ab. 1874] he was called to the church in Selma 
[Ala.], where he is in charge of a church which has become second to none in that State. 
D.D. was conferred by Harvard Coll., 1875. Dr. Cleveland is an accomplished Christian

in Brazoria co. to 1835, merchant. In 1835 settled on a farm 
near Barnard river. Was a soldier under Gen. Sam Houston, 
1836. Resided at Galveston after 1841 always, and was the 
possessor of a considerable fortune, principally of slaves. Was 
a surveyor and farmer ; was Dep. U. S. Marshal under Gen. 
Benjamin McCulloch. Without pretending to have knowledge 
of practice of medicine, while yellow fever raged at Galveston, 
1844, was wonderfully successful (over 500 cases) in his method of 
cure (without medicine) of that disease — the " Cleveland treat- 
ment." This was published in the papers. It proved the most 
successful of any ever adopted. The following from the Gal- 
veston Press : 

"Jesse a. H. Cleveland. His parents were Jesse Cleveland and Lucy Graves, 
and dwelt on the Shenandoah river, Va., at the date of his birth, i8oi. His education 
was perfected in Virginia. He attained wonderful excellence in the English branches, 
especially in mathematics, including surveying. His father designed him for law, but 
this was intercejjted by his early marriage to Sarah Lander, in Ky. He was 19 years 
old at first marriage. He had followed teaching for a time, surveying, and editmg a 
newspaper. He often indulged in contributing something flashing with spirit for the 
Press during political excitement. [See BIBLIOGRAPHY, Chap. IV.] He arrived in 
Tex. Apr., 1833, at Brazoria, where his wife soon died. He then settled on a cotton plan- 
tation on the Bernard river, where he married Mrs. Millicon, 1835, afterward moved to 
Galveston, 1842. During the war with Mexico he volunteered, and was efficient and 
earnest in the cause of Texan independence. In 1856, he married Mrs. E. J. Wortham, 
who survives him. In the yellow fever epidemic he was one of the first to go forward 
and nurse the sick, tender-hearted and kind in trouble, and a devoted father and friend . 
He died in 1876, and is buried in Galveston."

Gen. Robert H. Milroy, U. S. A., commandant at Winchester, 
a pass to buy goods in Baltimore, Md. The ladies in the party 
bought more than their permit allowed, and the party was ar- 
rested at Harper's Ferry, W. Va., for smuggling, and the goods

Rome. From J?ome Herald and Tribune, Mar. j, 18^2 : 


A few hours' sickness brought to a close the life of a grand and remarkable woman 
in Rome Thursday. The news will cause universal sadness in Rome and North Georgia, 
and to a devoted son, daughters, and grandchildren, it is a sad blow indeed. Mrs. Un- 
derwood was raised and went to school in Clarksville. She was a most remarkable 
, woman in every respect, possessing a wonderfully fine intellect, great will power, and 
was always a lovely and devoted wife and mother. As a biblical scholar she had few 
equals, and was equally as well posted on other literature and matters in general. She 
came of one of the most aristocratic families in the State. The funeral occurred from 
the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon, and this edifice was crowded with friends to 
pay the last sad tribute to a grand and noble woman. A long procession followed the 
remains to their last resting place in Myrtle Hill cemetery. The pall bearers were Col. 
T. W. Alexander, Judge Joel Branham, Capt. John H. Reece, Mir. Robert T. Fouche, 
Judge John W. Maddox, Mr. R. G. Clark, Mr. W. P. Simpson, Col. C. 1. Graves, and Col. 
A. W. Walton. The music at the services was beautiful and appropriate. The grand 
words and sentences uttered by Rev. Dr. Goetchius, in speaking of the life and death of 
Mrs. Underwood, stirred the very soul. 

From Rome Daily Bulletin, Feb. 22, 188^ [with portrait] : 

Judge John William Henderson Underwood graduated with honors from the 
State University, with the distinguished class of 1837. The same year, at the youthful 
age of seventeen years, he was admitted to the bar at Dahlonega, Lumpkin cc, Ga., 
where he practiced his profession with marked success for two years, and then moved 
to Clarksville, Ga. The brilliant young barrister took a lively interest in politics from 
the moment ne emerged from the doors of the University to take an active part in the 
great battle of life. After marriage Mr. Underwood applied himself with renewed vigor 
to the practice of law. Success, that ever follows where brains and industry lead, 
crowned his efforts, and while yet a young man he ranked among the first lawyers in 
the State. He was made Solicitor-General of the Western Circuit in 1843, but resigned 
the office before the exjiiration of his term. In 1850 he was sent as a delegate to the State 
Gubernatorial Convention, in which he played a conspicuous part, and made his debut 
into State politics. He moved to Rome in 1851, and ever since that time has played an 
important part in State and national politics, and took an active interest in the affairs of 
this town and county. He canvassed North Georgia for the Democracy in 1855, making 
a brilliant canvass, and again in 1856, and again in 1868, for Seymour and Blair. He was 
a delegate from the State at large to the Democratic Convention of 1856, which nominated 
Buchanan and Breckenridge, and a delegate to the Democratic Convention of i86o, which 
nominated Breckenridge and Lane, at Baltimore. In 1857 he was elected to the legisla- 
ture of Georgia, was elected Speaker of the House on the first day, and filled the office 
with honor and distinction. The same year he was appointed and confirmed Judge of 
the Supreme Court of Nebraska, which appointment he declined. In 1859 ^s was elected 
to the United States Congress, and though one of the youngest members he was also 
counted one of the ablest members of that historic Congress, which played such an im- 
portant part in the most stormy days the Republic ever witnessed. In January, i86r, 
when it became evident that secession was inevitable, Mr. Underwood resigned his seat 
in Congress, and gave his allegiance to the young Confederacy. 

In 1867 he was appointed Judge of the Tallapoosa circuit, by Gov. Charles J. Jenkins, 
for 4 years, and removed by the reconstruction laws under Bullock's administration. 
Judge Underwood then again drifted into politics, and did noble service in the work of 
redeeming his State from radical misrule. He is probably one of the finest stump speak- 
ers in the South, .and many a Republican champion has gone down before his lance. 
His sarcasm is withering, his eloquence irresistible, the force of his logic convincing, 
and his native wit, inherited from his father, as free, easy, and sparkling as the flowing 


In 1873, Judge Underwood was appointed Judge of the Rome circuit by (iov. Smith, 
■which office he held for 8 years, discharging its duties with a distinguished ability and 
regard for equity, that marked him one of the ablest jurists of his day. In 1882, Judge 
Underwood was appointed on the Tariff Commission, and the picture at the head of this 
article was taken while he was a member of that Commission. In a private letter to one 
of our citizens, Maj. John H. Dent has this to say regarding Judge Underwood's appoint- 
ment to the Commission : 

"I am sorry to see so fine a judge leave the bench. It is a loss to the judiciary of 
Georgia." It is generally conceded by those of the bar who know Judge Underwood 
best that he is one of the ablest lawyers in the State, that his legal discrimination and 
quickness of perception is unusually marked, his mind well stored with a thorough 
knowled|;e of the statutes, the decisions of our courts, and the principles of the common 
law. It IS surprising to see how readily he gathers the facts of a case from a simple 
reading of the most complicated and confused record, and with what readiness he ap- 

Elies the law to the facts of the case : his legal ability is beyond question. So far from 
is having heretofore been, as his detractors would have it, an old and obscure man, he 
has been literally crowned with honors, and his life has been devoted to the interest of 
the Democratic party and to the public good. 

Judge Underwood is now out of politics and devoting his time to the practice of his 
profession. Last year his name was prominently mentioned in connection with the Su- 
preme Court Judgeship, and his friends throughout the State were anxious to secure his 
election to the high office. But when the legislature met Judge Underwood declined to 
allow his name to go before the body as a candidate for a seat on the Supreme Court 
bench. He is now sixty-four years old. But he carries his age well, and having always 
been temperate, his mind is as active and vigorous as ever ;. and to-day he is acknowl- 
edged to be one of the ablest lawyers at the State bar. Though the frost of years has 
whitened his hair and beard, it has not bent the proud, erect head or caused the stalwart 
form to stoop. His carriage is still erect and his step elastic ; and the fire of that indom- 
itable energy that has never known rest still looks out upon you from the piercing blue 
eye ; and the fountain of wit and good humor still flows with the ripple of spring. The 
Judge will live many years to do good service for his party and State. A mind and 
nature like his cannot rest contented outside of active public life, and his friends hope to 
see him in public harness again, ere his long summer of life is passed. In honoring him, 
the State will ever honor herself.

Greenville Mountaineer, i86g — Death of Jeremiah Cap Cleve- 
land. The death of this young gentleman, so highly beloved 
and esteemed by his family, occurred at the residence of his 
father-in-law, J. Harvey Cleveland, Esq., on May 19 last. He 
was a grandson of Capt. Jeremiah Cleveland, who was early 
and long identified with Greenville, and in his day was one of 
the wisest and most respected of her citizens. His father, Jesse 
Cleveland, was distinguished as a man of talents and social and 
popular manners, and for several years represented the State 
of Ga. in the Congress of the U. S. Young Jeremiah seemed 
to have inherited the best qualities of head and heart of his im- 
mediate ancestors, but enjoyed superior advantages of educa- 
tion, and his own fine talents made them available in acquiring 
remarkable scholastic accomplishments. He was exceedingly 
kind, just, and amiable in his nature. Such qualities evinced 
in every sphere, and especially in the family circle, leaves it, 
with his youthful and devoted wife and little son, bereaved in- 
deed. It is scarcely necessary to state that a young man of his 


spirit and character made a good soldier in the South ; he was 
an early volunteer in her cause.

From a pamphlet, 1884: The South, State of South Carolina, City 
vf Greenville: 


Hamlin Beattie, President. 

In reviewing the commerce and industries of South Caro- 
lina, we are devoting no inconsiderable attention to her mone- 
tary institutions, believing that upon their soundness depends 
in a great measure the success and prosperity of the whole. 

The National Bank of Greenville was established in 1872, 
and has had a successful career. 

Its capital is $100,000 

Authorized capital, ..... 200,000 

Surplus, 20,000 

Average deposits, 150,000 

a statement which shows its standing and stability. The shares, 
$roo par, are selling at $130. 

The building is a substantial and handsome brick one, 
26 X 100 feet in extent, located on Main Street, in the center of 
the town. The office is well fitted up and nicely furnished, as 
are also the President's and Directors' rooms. The vault, a 
large brick one, incloses one of Hall's burglar proof chests, pro- 
vided with the latest triumph of American genius, the time-lock. 
The institution since its commencement has been managed by 
Hamlin Beattie, Pres., who is at present assisted by W. E. Beat- 
tie, cashier. Mr. Beattie graduated from Princeton College in 
1856, and read law with ex- Gov. Benjamin Franklin Perry of 
S. C, being admitted to the bar in 1857. Having more of a 
financial turn of mind, he has not devoted particular attention 
to the practice of the profession in which he had fitly qualified 
himself, and has been engaged in many large mercantile under- 
takings. He has guarded with scrupulous care the funds placed 


in the care of his bank, and the prosperity which has attended 
this institution indicates not only his fitness but that he duly 
appreciates the responsibility of the trust reposed in him. He 
is, among- other things, President of the Camperdown Mills.

of Lizzie Cleveland^ Williams, written by Mrs. Mary H. Cleveland 
of Greenville, appeared in a Greenville newspaper : 


There bloomed in August a lily fair, That gladdened awhile the dear " old 
Sweet was its breath on the summer air ; home "; 

But when came the chill September days Vainly we wander through garden bower. 

And wrapped the blue sky in misty haze, There's nothing left like that one pure 
Lest our beautiful flower should feel the flower. 

blight Roses are 'round us still fresh and bright, 

Of a cruel frost on some wintry night, All gemmed with the dew, and crowned 
Kindly gathered by an angel hand with light, 

'Twas gently borne to the " Spirit Land "; Yet the bud that opened that summer morn 

And there, methinks, it was surely given We see no more — alas ! it is gone, 

To the " Virgin Mother," " Queen of Heav- Leaving still another vacant spot 

en," To be filled with the pale "/i'r.^e/-we-«6!/, " 

For of all flowers of which we are blest While two sad hearts are left to sigh 

It is said she loves the lily best. For the August Lily beyond the sky. 
Ah ! sadly we miss the cherished bloom M. 

Greenville, S. C. 



The following, written also by Mrs. Mary H. Cleveland, ap- 
peared : 


who died in Greenville, S. C, 

October 13, 1877. 

The sweet perfume of orange buds Ah ! let us join the sad "amen," 

Still lingers round her brow, She's now the bride of heaven- 

Yet we must sadly twine for her Adown the aisle, through open door, 

A wreath of cypress now. Out in the glad sunlight, 

In pure, unsullied bridal robes They bear that precious form once more 

We see her clad once more. Where all is fresh and bright. 

But her eyes are veiled, her cheeks have And the infant bud that scarce had bloomed 

paled. Ere it withered on her breast. 

She smiles not as before. Was given a^ain to her loving arms. 

And to the church once more she's borne. As they laid her down to rest. 

And they step with measured tread. Oh ! may the golden eye of day 

For the organ peals no "wedding march," On that dear spot now dwell, 

But a "requiem for the dead." Shed there its earliest morning- ray. 

Now to the altar she hath come, Leave there its last farewell. 

Yet see-! in dreamless sleep Yet, in '■'■that city" she shall find 

She's lying there serenely calm They "need not sun nor moon ; 

Whilst all around her weep. The glory of God doth lighten it,"

Spartanburg Herald, Oct. 22, 1884 — 

Death of Hon. John Hamilton Evins. 

It has been very seldom in the history of this county that 
the announcement of the death of one of its citizens has caused 
such a deep and universal throb of grief and regret as did the 
sad intelligence that Hon. John H. Evins breathe^i his last on 
Monday morning, the 20th inst. 

Whilst it was generally known that his health was bad and 
his recovery doubtful, but very few of us knev/ that his case 
was hopeless, and that his days had been numbered. Only the 
day before his death, some of his friends were indulging strong 
hopes that he might rally his physical strength and be spared 
to his family and friends for a season. But the symptoms which 
had been gladly translated into an improved condition were 
only bright and cheerful reflections from his own resigned and 
happy spirit before taking its final flight. 


His physician had spent some time with him on Monday- 
morning, and saw no immediate danger. Mrs. Evins accom- 
panied the doctor to the door. When she returned Col. Evins 
had fallen asleep. In a few fleeting minutes he had passed, 
without a struggle, from the repose of sleep to the repose of 

Col. Evins was born in Spartanburg county on the i8th of 
July, 1830. His father was one of the most thrifty, energetic, 
honest, and intelligent citizens of the county. His mother was 
a woman of unusual strength of intellect and character, and by 
her precept and example thoroughly indoctrinated her children 
in the principles of virtue, truth, honor, and piety. Col. Evins 
never proved truant to these principles. He was graduated in 
the South Carolina College in the class of 1853 ; immediately 
began the study of law, and was admitted to the bar in 1856. 
Very soon after his admission he became one of the editors and 
proprietors of the Spartanburg Express^ which he conducted 
with marked ability until the war. He was one of the first in 
the State to enlist in the cause of the Southern Confederacy, 
and as soon as his company was called went to the front. He 
was with his regiment [5th S. C] in the first battle of Manassas, 
and proved himself there to be a brave and true soldier. 

On the reorganization of the army, in the spring of 1862, he 
was elected capt. of his company, K, [Palmetto] sharpshooters. 
Whilst engaged in a terrific struggle at Seven Pines, he was 
wounded in the arm by a ball which splintered the bone just 
below the shoulder joint ; in consequence of which he patiently 
and bravely endured many weeks of intense agony, during 
which he was attended by his brother, Dr. Thomas Evins, a 
Confederate surgeon. It was owing to the skill and devotion 
of his brother that his arm was saved. 

His wounded arm was for a long time the cause of much 
irritation and suffering, from which he never recovered suffi- 
ciently to rejoin his command, and was appointed to the very 
important and responsible position of Lt.-Col. of the Home 
Guards in Spartanburg Co. We are assured by those who 
know the facts, that the people of this and adjoining counties 
are largely indebted to his skill, patience, energy, and courage 
for the preservation of their lives and property, which were 
threatened by native renegades, who eagerly sought to gratify 
their lust of blood and plunder upon the true and loyal men 
and women who had scorned and denounced them as traitors 
and cowards. 

In 1863-4, he was elected by an almost unanimous vote of 
civilians and soldiers to a seat in the House of Representatives 
of the State. This high position he filled with the same earn- 
estness, prudence, and fidelity which had previously marked 
his career of public usefulness. 

Very soon after the close of the war he devoted himself with 
unusual energy to the practice of his profession, and soon rose 
to distinction as a pleader and advocate. He was one of the 
most timid and self-distrusting men we have ever known at the 
bar. When he first began to speak at the bar his natural diffi- 
dence would so overpower him as to make it painful to his 



friends to witness his discomfiture ; but with an indomitable 
will he would subjugate his own self-consciousness, and rising 
to the demands of the occasion, would soon transform an appar- 
ant failure into a brilliant success. He never succeeded in 
overcoming his natural diffidence, only in so far as to be able 
always to fully meet the requirements of the cause which called 
him before the public. It was only a sense of duty that brought 
him before the public gaze, and that he always met at any sac- 
rifice to his persoaal comfort or convenience. The success of 
his public career was due to this — his conscience was stronger 
than his consciousness. [Member Democratic National Con- 
vention, St. Louis, 1S76.] 

In 1876, without any premeditation on his part, he was 
elected by the Convention as a candidate for Congress in this 
district. One who was in Columbia at the time well remembers 
this remark of his — "I desire to consult you as to my duty. 
Some of my friends urge me to accept the nomination for Con- 
gress. I have no ambition to lead a 'forlorn hope,' but if I can 
be of any service to the party, I am willing to make the sacri- 
fice ; I feel confident that I will be counted out, if not beaten, 
but if I can help the cause I can submit to either. What would 
you advise me to do ? " His friend advised him to accept. 
With all the zeal and energy which could be inspired by as- 
sured success, he entered the campaign, devoted all the fire and 
energy of his indomitable nature to its conduct, and thereby 
won a signal and splendid victory. So wisely and faithfully 
has he discharged his duty in that high position, that his proud 
constituents have not hesitated to return him for four success- 
ive terms. [For 48th Cong, he received 11,662 votes, D. B. 
Elkins, Greenback, 4,588 votes.] There can be no doubt that he 
would have again l3een nominated and elected but for the fact 
that his failing health compelled him to decline. In the death 
of Col. Evins, the U. S. Congress will feel the loss of one of its 
most diligent, faithful, and useful members. The State of S. 
C. will mourn one of her noblest citizens, and Spartanburg will 
fructify his memory in the tears she sheds over the grave of 
her honored son. 

If one word we could add could alleviate the painful bereave- 
ment of his family, we would gladly protract this notice ; but 
the recital of the virtues of a kind and loving husband, of a 
patient and generous father, whose heart has been chilled in 
the coldness of death, must necessarily excite emotions of grief 
which we would gladly repress.

A pretty tribute. 

[Lines suggested by the death of little John Alden Cleveland, who asked 
while dying, "What will happen to-day? "J 

For the Aug'usia Chronicle. 

What will happen, my child ? Why only this : 

An angel will enter a world of bliss. 

A small, new angel, with wings of snow, 

Up to a beautiful home shall go ; 

A fevered brow will grow calm and white 

And meet for a glittering crown of light. 

What will happen ? A pair of bright eyes 
Will close to open in Paradise, 
And oh ! to-day, two dear little feet 
Shall begin to walk the "golden street" ; 
A tender lamb will be borne on high 
To pastures green, where still waters lie ; 
Borne in the '"gentle Shepherd's" arms, 
Forever free from earth's rude storms. 

What will happen ? Alas ! the home 
Joyous once, will be full of gloom ; 
The gold of the sunlight will fade away, 
And the flowers their perfume lose to-day ; 
For the child, who seemed of sunshine born, 
And the flowers loved, will to-day be gone. 
The children shall hush their songs of glee, 
And two stricken hearts shall mourn for thee ; 
But soon they shall lift their tearful eyes 
To that fair " Bonhaven " beyond the skies, 
And say, " For so it seemed good in Thy sight," 
"Even so. Father," we know it is right.

The more ancient Genealogy of Cleiveland or Cleveland : 


THORKIL' DE CLIVELAND lived soon before, at, or just 
after the Norman Conquest. [The battle of Hastings (Sussex 
CO., Eng.) was fought Oct. 14, 1066, and Harold II, the English 
king, was killed. The battle terminated the Saxon dynasty,, 
and put William the Norman — to whom the victory gave the 
title of the' Conqueror — in possession of the throne of England.], 
Thorkir had at least a son 


Thorkil' DE Cliveland \_History of Christian Names by Miss 
Charlotte Mary Yonge — Thorkjell m. Nor. Teu. [Saxon] Thor's 
(m. Ger. Teu. Thor, the thunder god) cauldron], the most 
ancient Cleveland of whom there is- any record. The earliest 
mention of his name appears to be in the deed, " Ex dono 
Uctredi filii Thorkil de Cliveland " — " Uctred, son of Thorkil de 
Cliveland," to Whitby Abbey, Cleveland, Yorkshire, Eng. As 
already stated in this work, Thorkil' evidently resided at Gise- 
burne, the urbs Calicvium mentioned by Baxter \see page 9 to 
pedigree, p. 16, 17], now Guisborough, Cleveland, North Riding 
of Yorkshire, England. Evidently here he assumed the sur- 
name, calling himself Thorkil de (of) Cliveland, probably when 
well along in years, and at the same time that his son adopted 
the patronymic. Thorkil' was of Saxon ancestry, and likely 
had other children of less prominence. 

Graves" Cleveland, 175, 370; Ord's Cleveland, 268, 477 — Domes- 
day Book — Torchil, or Turchil, before the Conquest the Saxon 
land owner of Kilton, Skelton Parish. Tor and Carle held 
property in East Rounton, Hutton Rudby Parish. Perhaps 
these were identical with Thorkil' de Cliveland. 

Thor was the ancient king or general of our Saxon ancestors 
while they lived in Scythia or Tartary, and before they came 
into Germany, whom, after death, they deified and worshiped 


SO much that nearly 40 towns in England bear his name, as well 
as one day in our week, Thursday. Scandinavian Mythology — 
Thor, the son of Odin and Freya, answering to Jove of the

UcTRED^ DE Cliveland \Yonge' s Christian Natnes — Uchtred, 
m. Eng. Teu. (Saxon) mind council], evidently had his seat at 
Gisborough, Cleveland, Eng., and, it is presumed, was identical 
with Uctred, the Saxon, owner of considerable landed property, 
being 10 manors, etc., all situated in Cliveland, Cleveland, York- 
shire, Eng., held, before the Norman Conquest, in his first or 
given name, Uctred. (And if the following were different 
Uctreds, he 'may have been one of them.) Graves' Cleveland,

Dugdale' s Monasticofi, 1 : 40^ — Whitby Monastery, called also 
Streoneshalh, Sinus Phari, and Presteby, is situated in the 
Deanery and Archdeaconry of Cleveland, North Riding of 
York. Hilda, abbess of Heruteu, founded here, about A. D. 657, 
a monastery. Charlton [History of Whitby and of Whitby Abbey by 
Lionel Charlton'] York, ifjp, p. 22, states it to have been refounded 
by William de Percy, 1074, although not mentioned in Domesday. 
Was refounded in the reig-n of the Conqueror. The monks 
placed it under government of Reinf rid, first Prior ever brought 
from the Benedictine Abbey of Evesham, in Worcestershire, 
Eng. The Abbey was surrendered to the King, Dec. 14, 1540, 
and afterward plundered. Of Whitby Abbey nothing is now 
left standing but the ruins of the church, on a high cliff about 
a quarter of a mile from the sea. In the ist and 2d of Philip 
and Mary, the queen granted license to Sir John York to alien- 
ate the manor of Whitby-Lathes to Sir Richard Cholmley, Knt., 
in the possession of whose descendants the site of the abbey 
still remains. 411 — Num.11. De Dotatione Monasterii. Ex

Mr. Nichols connects following child by dotted lines to John' 
de Cliveland in the pedigree, and evidently only conjectures 


him to be son of John'. But of this there is little or no proba- 
bility, there being room for more generations than 8 between 
1066 and 1403 =337 years, however, for convenience we annex 
as being of 8th generation : 

4- 177 1 1 John [*?] Cleveland, b. perhaps 1343. 


JOHN' CLEVELAND (?john''), drops de from the surname. 
Citizen of York, Yorkshire, Eng,, fior. 1403, is witness to a deed 
dated March, ann. 4 R. Hen. IV. See :p. 16, 17. 

And then in the pedigree follows, connected to John* by a 
dotted line, as if a possible son, the name of : 

17712 William [?°] Cleveland, Sheriff of York, 1456 — 
Francis Drake's York, jdj. Prom him, continues Mr. Nichols, 
was apparently descended William' Cleiveland [4-17714]. 


Rev. JOHN CLYVELAND (whose name in the pedigree is opposite 

John*, as if a descendant of Thorkiii), presbyter, vicar St. Cuthbert's 
Chapel, York, 1405, of St. Elen's 141 8. Drake's York, 323,344..

The following from Nichols' Hinckley; Bib. Top. Brit. VII: 
122 — Appendix. Memoirs of Eminent Persons, Natives of 
Hinckley, Pedigree facing p. 132 — Genealogy of Cleiveland of

peared in N. E. His. Gen. Reg., XXXIX: 212, commencing thus : 

"THE Genealogy of the Cleivelands of Hinckley in Leicestershire, 

" Communicated by H. G. Cleveland, Esq., of Cleveland, O. 

"I have arranged in modern form, for the Register, the records of Mr. Nichols con- 
cerning the Cleivelands of Hinckley, Leicestershire, in order that they may have a ■per- 
manent place in our libraries for reference. Mr. Nichols prefixed the following dedica- 

'"To the Right Reverend Father in God, Thomas {Thomas* /Vrcy +17762], Lord 
Bishop of DROMORE, this Genealogy, carefully formed from Family Deeds, Extracts from 
Registers, and the Information of living Persons, is humbly inscribed by his much 
obliged and most faithful humble Servant, J. Nichols.' 

"It does not appear that Thomas Cleiveland, of the second generation, had a son 
Moses (as generally supposed) who came from Ipswich, Suffolk, to America about 163s 
to 1638 ; of Woburn." 

An eminent English antiquary in 1851 sjtated that the Cleve- 
lands of America were descended from following William' 
Cleiveland, who had a son Thomas, who may have been father 
to Moyses, the emigrant, but the informant thought Samuel, a 
younger brother, was his father. 


WILLIAM' CLEIVELAND (perhaps descended from Wil- 
liam Cleveland -f 177 12, and probably from Thorkil' de Clive- 
land +17701), came from Yorkshire (most probably from York), 
Eng., where his family lived for several generations, and their 
early ancestors had much landed property in North Riding of

Rev. Thomas" Cleiveland, admitted of St. John's, Cam- 
bridge, Nov. 5, 1605, a scholar of Dr. Fell's foundation ; took 
the degree of A.B. or B.A. 1608 ; of A.M. or M.A. 1614, was first 
of all assistant to rector of Loughboro'; became Vicar of Hinck- 
ley, with the rectory of Stoke and chaplainship of Dadlington 
annexed, all in Leicestershire, about the beginning of 1621. 

Sufferings of the Clergy^ 6y John Walker, 221 — He was a very great sufferer for his 
loyalty and attachment to the ancient constitution of church aad state ; was father of 
the famous John Cleiveland, the poet, and had at the time of his sequestration q [8] chil- 
dren (several of which besides the poet were sufferers also). He was dispossessed by 
the committee of Leicester. 

It appears that he always wrote his name Cleiveland, which 
orthography was generally followed by his descendants, but not 
universally, for some wrote it Cleveland and Cleaveland. 


JOHN' CLEIVELAND or CLEVELAND (Thomas^, wiuiami), 
the Poet, d. Gray's Inn, London, Eng., Apr. 29, 1658, a. 44. The 
title pages of the various editions of his works render his name 
Cleaveland, Cleavland, Cleveland, Clieveland. See Bibliogra- 
phy, Chap. IV. His portrait appears in his Works : in Nichols' 
Bib. Top. Brit., VII : ij6, encircled with the words: This is he

J. Bastre ; and also in other publications. The Original in the

Nichols' Bib., VII : 136 — John^ Cleveland was educated at Hinck- 
ley under Rev. Richard Vines or Vynes, a noted Puritan ; adm. 
of Christ's Coll., Camb., Sept. 4, 1627; took degree B.A. 1631. 
Then rem. to St. John's Coll., same University, being elected 
Fellow Mar. 27, 1634, M.A. 1635. He continued for many years 
the delight and ornament of the house in which he was. a tutor. 
Being excused from going into holy orders, became their rhet- 
oric reader, usually drew up all epistles and addresses for that 
Society, being much admired for the purity and terseness of 
his Latin style. He also became celebrated for his occasional 
poems in English, especially on the breaking out of the civil 
wars, where he is said to have been the first champion that 
appeared in verse for the royal cause — Athen. Oxon., by Anthony 
a Wood, 2d ed., II : 274. In 1642, John' had the honour of speak- 
ing an oration before the king, Charles I, and prince, at -St. 
John's coll., with which, Winstanley [ William^ says, the king was 
so well pleased that he sent for him, gave him his hand to kiss, 
ordered a copy to be sent after him to Huntingdon. When Oliver 
Cromwell was in election to be member fori Cambridge, as 
John' engaged all his friends and interests to oppose it, iso when 
it was carried but by one vote, he cried out with much passion, 
"that that single vote had ruined church and kingdom," such 
fatal events did he presage from the success of Oliver. See 
London Post, No. 23, Feb. 11, 1644-3, when John Cleveland is 
brought to London for libelling. When the opposite party pre- 
vailed, he retired to the king at Oxford, and was, in his absence, 
ejected from his fellowship, Apr. 8, 1644 (or ejected by the earl 
of Manchester, Feb. 13, 1644) — see Walker's Sufferings, II: i4g. 
In Newark Castle, the garrison which so long supported the 
king's declining cause, he was Judge- Advocate under Gov. Sir 
Richard Willis. There he drew up a gallant return to the 
summons of the besiegers. After the surrender, 1646, by the 
express command of the King, then a prisoner with the Scot- 
tish army, Cleveland followed the fates of distressed loyalty, 
concealed for some years, till, in Nov., 1655, ^^ was seized at 
Norwich as a person of great abilities adverse and dangerous 
to the reigning government — State Papers, by John Thurloe, IV : 
184-3. He lay many months in prison at Yartnouth, till, ad- 
dressing the Protector, Oliver Cromwell, he was by his order 
set at liberty. His petition (which he signs J. Cleiveland) 
begins : 

" May it please your highness : Rulers within the circle of their government have a 
claim to that which is said o£ the Deity ; they have their centre everywhere and their 
circumference is nowhere" ; it is remarkable for the address with which the writer em- 
ploys such moving topics as might neither do violence to his conscience nor betray his 

John' Cleveland was contemporary with the poet John Mil- 
ton. The Bibliographer' s Manual of English Literature. By Wil- 
liam Thomas Lowndes, 1873, p. 480; Retrosp. Rev., XII : 123-42 — 
While the first edition and sheets of Paradise Lost were slowly 




struggling through the mists of bigotry and party prejudice 
into public reputation, the Poems of Cleveland were poured 
forth in innumerable impressions. The reverse is now the 
singular contrast ; and Cleveland has had the fate of those 
poets, described in Life of Abraham Cowley, by Dr. Samuel John- 
son, who, " paying their court to temporary prejudices, have been 
at one time too much praised, and at another too much

1687 — After many intermediate Stages (which contended as 
emulously for his aboad, as the 7 cities for Homer's birth), 
Gray's Inn was his last, which, when he had ennobled with 
some short residence, an intermitting fever siezed him, whereof 
he dyed. Worthies in Leicester, by Thomas Fuller — His body was 
brought to Hunsdon House and was interred May i, 1658, in

of Learning and Loyalty, Mr. Edward Thurman performed the 
Office of Burial, and the Reverend and Learned Dr. Pearson

nothing but a Monument for him : and in this Book he hath

History of the Hundred of Wirral. By William Williams Mor- 
timer, 320 — The executors of Samuel Powell of Horsley, in 
whom the property of the Baronet vested, sold that portion 
which had belonged to the priory (built by Sir Thomas Powell 
before 16 Charles I, 1641), and which is described as an estate 
in Cheshire called the manor of Birkenhead, alias Birkett and 
Claughton-cutn-Grange, with all the demesne lands, tenements, 
etc., to them belonging, together with divers lands, messuages, 
etc., in Birkenhead, Wallasey, Tranmere, to John Cleveland of 
Liverpool, Esq. Three years after he had made the purchase, 
Mr. Cleveland died, leaving two sons and one daughter, Alice, 
married to Francis Price of Bryn-y-pys, in the county of Flint, 
Esq., to whose great-grandson, Francis Richard Price of the 
same place, Esq., the manor, lordship, and estates, have de- 
scended, according to the following table : — [pedigree]. Mr. 
Cleveland resided at Cleveland Place, " in the parish and near 
the docke of Liverpool." Some of the trees in his Parke, the 
site of which is now used as a market, remained until 1825. 
Mr. Cleveland was one of the most eminent merchants of his 
day. He was M. P. for Liverpool in 1710-13, and Mayor of 
that borough in 1703. Cleveland Street, Birkenhead, was 
named by William Laird, Esq., after the late owner of the 
township, John Cleveland, Esq. The Town Hall and Bride-

merly a Representative in Parliament for Liverpool, who died 
17th August, 1716 ; and of William Cleveland, his son, M. P. for

Burke's Armory: Mortimer's Hundred of Wirral, 321 — to whom Birkenhead 
Priory, manor, lordship, and estates descended. — From the time Birkenhead and 
Claughton were granted to Worsley, they are seldom mentioned. Sir Thomas Powell 
built the old hall [before 164x1, of late years called the Priory, on the site of the ancient 
hotel or lodging house erected under the licenses of the Edwards. At this he occasion- 
ally resided, and during the civii war, when the passage over the Mersey was deemed of 
great importance, the house was fortified by the royalists. It surrendered to parlia- 
mentary troops Sept. 22, 1644 ; the hall was rebuilt and considerable additions made to it 
by Mr. Parry Price, who lived in it for some time. At length, in 1843, after having been 
alternately occupied as a farm house, boarding school, a temporary chapel, a lodging 
house, and a private residence, it was demolished, the gardens laid out for streets, now 
covered with 100 shops and houses. 340 — In 1773, William Woods was tenant of Wood- 
side Ferry, under Mrs. Price.

Rev. William" Cleiveland, of Magdalen Hall, Oxford, Eng. 
B.A. 1754; M.A. 1757, succeeded his father, 1758, in the rectory 
of All Saints, Worcester, minor canon of Worcester cathedral, 

of which he had been incumbent near 37 years, having, Feb. 8, 1758, succeeded his father, 
who had been presented to the same by that excellent prelate, Bishop Hough, and insti- 
tuted by him June 10, 1731. So that the father and son had held this benefice upwards 
of 63 years, even from the birth of the latter, who may be said to have spent his whole 
life, from his cradle to his death-bed, in the parsonage house at All Saints ; for which he 
bad such a predilection, and such an attachment to this his first and only church (al- 
though attended with very severe duty, which he continued to the last to discharge him- 
self), that no desire or prospect of preferment could tempt him to forsake it ; for the ' 
Bishop of Dromore assured me that, to bis knowledge, Mr. Cleiveland once refused the 
offer of a considerable benefice, which would have required him to abandon his beloved 
parishioners at All Saints. This conscientious, worthy clergyman (who has died with- 
out issue) was the last of the name of Cleiveland of the family at Hinckley.

John NichoW Lit., Illust., VIII : sii — 'R.ev. W. Sturrockto James Macpherson, Aug. 
21, 1787 : " No bishop in the kingdom exercises the various functions of his office with more 
ability, diligence, and approbation." 435 — The bishop's efforts to counteract the per- 
nicious influence of the works of Volney and Paine, his personal exertions, his charge to 
the clergy, his distribution of the scriptures, his encouragement of literary societies and 
Sunday-schools, will be long remembered in the North of Ireland [Mr. Nichols dedicates

Francis Richard^ Price, of Bryn-y-Pys and Birkenhead, Eng., 
Esq., whose name Will ever occupy a most prominent situation 
in the history of Birkenhead, to whom have descended the 
manor, lordship, and estates in Cheshire called the manor of 
Birkenhead, alias Birkett and Claughton-cum-Grange, with all 
the demesne lands, tenements, etc., to them belonging, together 
with divers lands, messuages, etc., in Birkenhead [Priory, etc.], 
Wallasey, Tranmere, and Claughton. 

Alor timer's Wirral, 323— Birkenhead. Soon after the demise of his father, Mr. 
Price, who had succeeded to the entire townships of Birkenhead and Claughton, barred 
the entail created in 1765 by the will of his great-grandmother, Mrs. Alice Price, which 
limited the estates to her gr. s., Francis Parry Price, and the heirs of his body in tail 
male. In 1817 and 1818, Messrs. Hetherington and Grindrod, whose attention was at- 
tracted by the facility of transit likely to result from the introduction of steam-boats on 
the Mersey, where they first appeared in 1815, purchased from Mr. Price a large portion 
of the sea front, and the lands surrounding the priory. In their agreement with Mr. 
Price, it was stipulated that certain streets should be cut through the fields, and a new 
church built by that gentleman ; they engaging to form another landing place and to 
construct a hotel, on that part of the property now occupied by the Birkenhead Hotel 
and Ferry. 327— In 1822, the new Church was opened. In 1823, an actual survey of 
Birkenhead and Claughton was made by Mr. William Lawton, a land-surveyor and 
agent to Mr. Price, from which it appears there were 61 houses. 330 — Woodside Ferrj' 
Co.., lessees under Mr. Price, "had an ancient right of Ferry from Birkenhead to Liver- 
pool." 341 —In 1S23, Mr. Price erected a new pier, the present landing slip of the Ferry. 
342 — Mr. Price agreed to extend the lease of Ferry to 21 years. 347 — Mr. Jackson 
offered benefit of the contracts he had made with Mr. Price for his reversionary interest 
in the Ferry to the township, an offer gladly accepted. 349 — Ferry boat Eliza Price, of 
150 tons. 357 — By the Corporation of Liverpool considerable purchases near Wallasey 
Pool made from Mr. Price, land for purposes of trade of port of Liverpool docks. 362 — 
Commissioners for Improvement of Birkenhead, by the act for their incorporation, were 
empowered to erect a Town Hall, Prison, and a Public Market. Towards these pur- 
poses Mr. Price contributed an acre of land for the site, in addition to paying a moiety 
of the expenses of obtaining the act of parliament. 373 — Mr. Price bound purchasers of 
land not to erect steam-engines or nuisances in the town. 374 — Price Street, 2,700 yards 
length, 84 ft. breadth, named after the late owner of the township, Mr. Price. 38^ — In 
1S44, Adelphi Hotel and Woodside Hotel were purchased from Mr. Price by Mr. William 
Jackson. 387 — Statement of Commissioners of Birkenhead. To F. R. Price, for Fee- 
simple of Woodside Perry, ^£44,000. 351 — St. Mary's church, erected by Mr. Price, at his 
own expense, on elevated ground adjacent to ruins of ancient Priory. July Tq, 1819,

14th century, during reign of 2d and 3d Edwards, by whom charters were granted to the 
Priory. Tower and spire 130 ft. high. 335 — In 1844; Mr. Price sold the residue of his 
Birkenhead property, together with St. Mary's Church and the manor of Claughton, to 
William Jackson, Esq., thus terminating the connection that had existed between those 
townships and the house of Bryn-y-pys for upwards of a century.

England Historic Genealogical Society — Prepared by the Rev. 
Dorus Clarke, D.D., late Historiographer of the Society : John 
GouGH Nichols, F. S. A., a corresponding member. He was 
the representative of a family which, while carrying on success- 
fully the business of printing, has for three generations, more 
or less, distinguished itself in the sphere of literature and arch- 
aeological research. In 181 1, the subject of this notice was 
placed at a school at Islington, where Benjamin Disraeli was 
his school -fellow. In 181 4, he was sent to Lewisham, where he 
remained until 1816, and in 181 7 was placed at Merchant Tay- 
lor's, from which, in the summer of 1824, he left school to join 
in the business and literary labors of his father and grandfather, 
to whom, before his school-days were over, he was a useful 
assistant. Journals kept by him during his school-days, are 
still in existence, and indicate the bent of his mind. He makes 
notes on churches, and copies inscriptions and epitaphs. His 
first literary work, after leaving school, was to help in the com- 
pilation of the " Progresses of King James the First," the latest 
work of his father, which lie completed after his father's death. 
He took an active part in the editorial management of The 
Gentleman's Magazine until 1856 (when the proprietorship was 
relinquished by the Messrs. Nichols), contributing to its pages 
many essays of considerable historical value. [For a catalogue 
of his writings, see Bibliography, Chap. IV.] In 1829, he pub- 
lished his first separate work, a collection of Autographs of 
Royal, Noble, Learned, and Remarkable Personages, accom- 
panied by Biographical Memoirs, which show extensive research 



and historical knowledge in its young author. In 183 1, he pub- 
lished a volume on London Pageants, which was received with 
considerable favor. In 1835, he was elected a. Fellow of the 
Society of Antiquaries, of which he was an active and useful 
member until the time of his death. In 1838, he suggested 
and, in conjunction with other friends, established the Camden 
Society, the objects of which were announced to be "to perpet- 
uate and render accessible whatever is valuable, but at present 
little known amongst the materials for the Civil, Ecclesiastical, 
or Literary History of the United Kingdom." This society 
rapidly achieved a triumph beyond the hopes of its projectors. 
In 1844, he became an original member of the Archaeological 
Association. The termination of Mr. Nichols's connection with 
the management of The Gentleman's Magazine had been ren- 
dered necessary by the state of his health, but it was with great 
reluctance that he renounced it, and in little more than a year" 
we find him planning the establishment of another periodical, 
which ultimately took the form of the Herald and Genealogist, 
which met with great favor, but other engagements and uncer- 
tain health interfered seriously with the regularity of the pub- 
lication. Mr. Nichols joined the London and Middlesex Arch- 
seological Association on its first establishment in 1855, and was 
elected a member of its Council in 1857, and a Vice-President 
in 1865, which offices he retained until his death. The Trans- 
actions of this society also bear witness to his untiring industry 
and extensive knowledge. Throughout the summer of 1873 
his friends had observed with regret a decided falling off in his 
health and strength, but he still bestowed an immense amount 
of labor upon his different undertakings. A few days before 
his death he read a proof of a new edition of Mr. Evelyn Shir- 
ley's "Stemmata Shirleiana." He was admitted a member of 
this institution July 23, 1864.

rian tastes which have made the name so famous in " Old buck 
literature." See Etiglish Cyclopadia Btog., iS^J, IV: 487.

he resumed his right name. According to another account, he 
came from England to Halifax 1779. He was accompanied by

Hon. Balfour^ Cowen contributes the following reminiscences 
of his mother : 

At father's death, my mother and her 3 boys were left almost among strangers, and 
with but little to provide for our wants, as father had expended all his means in buying 
lands on which to make a home, and mother, anxious that we children should. have the 
land kept for us as a remembrancer of what our father had provided, and of his plans 
for the mture, with true motherly courage attempted the battle of life with her single 
arms, burdened with our support and education, and right nobly did she wage the un- 
equal contest ; but every week she found a constantly accumulating debt for the board 
of her then helpless little ones, and was forced to arrange for our support by a separa- 
tion of the family ; this went on for about 2 years, when she received an otter of mar- 
riage from Ezekiel Gillham, a widower of small means and with a large family, but a 
man who feared God and did righteously in all his dealings with his fellow man (farmer 
and shoemaker); this offer she was, by the advice of friends, induced to accept, and the 
result was that we were once more provided with a home, humble and unpretentious, 
but happy and good, where we could be together, no, not all, for before the marriage 
mother had, under the necessities then upon her, consented to the indenture of her old- 
est, Llewellyn, to a farmer, and he remained there until he was grown to an age when 
he could take care of himself, and the indenture was released. This marriage took us 
away from the acquaintances we had made in the first years of our sojourn in the then 
far West, and from the only relatives we had in the state, the family of a paternal uncle, 
John Cowen. 

I hardly see how I could write of my "queen " of a mother without giving them as 
pointers to the struggles she had for our support and education, which, now that she is 
no more, stand out with ever increasing grandeur as I come to know how much she ac- 
complished with the meagre opportunities and advantages she had. These years of our 
life were spent on a small farm, nine miles northwest of Alton. About 1839, some three 
years after the death of my stepfather, we moved to the land that our father had entered, 
three and a half miles northeast from Jerseyville, rented a place for the first year, and 
then built on and occupied the land that all those years had been held as a sacred trust 
by mother. It was raw prairie, and had to be fenced, broken, and planted by two boys 
with one team, which we began to do, taking forty acres as a first attempt. This was m 
1850, neither of us of age when we contracted for the building of our house in the spring 
of 1849, but we found a man who had confidence enough to lend us five hundred dollars 
on the note of myself and Norredden (and I am speaking now of he and I, as Llewellyn 
wa,s then at work for himself), and we fenced 40 acres and gathered material for a house.

cousin, Mrs. Leonard, writes : 

" Dr. Cleveland found that the people preferred the old physicians to the young', con- 
sequently had few calls ; but after a time a young lady, da, of Maj. Tower, a prominent 
man, fell sick. The old doctors exhausted their skill m vain. A counsel was called ; by 
courtesy, the young doc. was invited. The doctors decided on a course of treatment, 
and asked the young doctor's opinion ; he replied that the proposed treatment would 
make the patient deaf, dumb, and blind. They did not believe him, but proceeded, 
with the result predicted. They were then dismissed ; he was called and successfully 
treated the case, and married the lady. He had all the practice he could attend to after

Dr. George Washington^ Cleveland grad. University State 
of N. Y., college of Physicians and Surgeons, western district, 
Fairfield, N. Y., 1831; studied with his brother. Dr. William P.; 
practising physician and surgeon ; located 2 years in Mich., and 
in Sherburne, afterward at Waterville always to decease. Dr. 
Cleveland was highly esteeined. In politics a Democrat ; for 
16 years he was Magistrate ; was elected to the Board of Super- 
visors 4 terms: 1850, 1851, 1882, and in 1883, representing the 
town of Sangerfield, N. Y., was elected in the spring of 1883 by 
a majority of no over C. F. Havens, and was the oldest mem- 
ber. Biographical sketch in Utica^ N. Y., Daily Press, Nov. 14, 

Mrs. Almira (Barrett) Cleveland received a finished educa- 
tion at one of the very best schools of her day in New England, 
the then justly celebrated school of Miss Prescott, at Groton, 
Mass., where she spent 3 years under the instruction of that 
most accomplislied and successful teacher. She was united in 
marriage to George W. Cleveland, M.D., on the loth day of Oc- 
tober, 1832, at Springfield, N. Y. With him she lived at Water- 
ville, N. Y., for a period of 50 years, departing this life on the 
nth day of March, 1886, at the age of over 77 years, surviving 
her husband two years. 

Mrs. Cleveland was a lady of many rare and accomplished 
virtues, of a sweet, cheerful disposition, and was sympathetic, 
gentle, and affectionate in her nature. A long life of purity in 
thought and action and deeds of disinterested kindness and 
charity, crowned by a Christian's belief in a future life as sim- 
ple as it was pure, self- satisfying, and self-sustaining, endeared 
her to all who came within the charmed circle of her acquaint- 

The hallowed memory and blessed influence of her sweet 
life and character are the priceless jewels left by her for her 
children and friends, richer by far than silver or gold.

Lieut. Norredden* Cowen, enlisted Sept., 1861, was commis- 
sioned first It. Co. L, 2d 111. Cav. Reg., Sept. 13, 1861. His 
brother, Hon. Balfour^ Cowen, thus writes concerning him: 

Brother Norredden was Judge Advocate of a general court 
martial, was in the battle of Pea Ridge, and many other en- 
gagements of less importance ; he was promoted to a captaincy 
in the same co. He was remarkable when a boy, and even after 
he was married, for his timidity at the sight of blood. I have 
known him to faint at sight of blood, and I was surprised to 
hear of his enlistment, but mother's conscientious teachings as 
to duty had led him to regard it as his duty to go, and he went 
leaving the consequences with Him in whom he had ever been 
taught to trust. I asked him after the battle of Pea Ridge how 
he managed to go through without losing control of himself 
when men were falling ail 'round ; he replied that he had no 

^ruJV^ ^?^ 




business with the dead then, it was the living he was after; but 
after the battle he was detailed to remove the rebel wounded 
and then he was sorely tried. In '64, I think, he was in La., 
and two companies being on a scout, one of the companies had 
a skulker that they had never been able to get into a fight, and 
the captain detailed an orderly to look after him, with orders 
to see that if they got into a fight that he should be kept in the 
ranks. When they had gone some distance the shirk's horse 
suddenly became unmanageable and he was left some distance 
behind, but the orderly stopped and tried to get the horse to 
go, but the soldier insisted he couldn't manage him, so the or- 
derly determined to have him go, changed horses with him, and 
when the shirk mounted the orderly's horse he started him, and 
the horse by this time being so far behind took the bits in his 
teeth and started for his place in line at a tremendous speed; in 
passing my brother the soldier's carbine caught on my broth- 
er's horse in some way and was thrown up with such force that 
it struck Norredden on the back of the head and felled him from 
his horse as if he had been shot ; he was for a long time on the 
verge of the grave in consequence, and when able to travel re- 
signed and returned home. For several years after he was un- 
ble to do any kind of work ; he was granted a pension. He 
formed a copartnership with his former captain in the milling 
business, and being able to earn his own support would not 
take the pension and it lapsed. He then in company with his 
partner and another man bought a mill in Carlyle, where he 
moved ab. 1868, and continued there until his death.

4-18770 Mary Augusta^ Cowen, b. Aug. 2, 1873, Virden, 111. 

Hon. Balfour" Cowen gives the following autobiographical 
sketch : "I found myself unable to do the work of the farm, 
and much as I disliked to part with the patrimony I sold out 
in the fall of. 1857, and the next spring moved to this place, and 
with my brother Lew commenced in mercantile business ; soon 
after buying him out and continuing the business alone to 


spring of i860, then took in a partner. Continued to Sept., 
1862, when I enlisted and was elected Captain of Co. G, i22d 
111. Inf., both my brothers being then in the service with the 
rank of lieutenant. In December, 1862, I was detached as Pro- 
vost Marshal of Trenton, Gibson co., Tenn.; was captured Dec, 
20, by Gen'l Forrest in his raid on the Mobile & Ohio R. R. 
Having some $300 of government money in my possession, and 
fearing that I would be robbed when I come to give my rank 
and position, I made an excuse and got out of sight of my 
guards and stowed the money in my boots until I was turned 
over to our forces at Columbus, Hickman co., Ky. Once dur- 
ing the march to our lines under rebel guard I gave up all 
hopes of ever again seeing the loved ones at. home, and sitting 
down on a convenient log leaned forward to receive the shot I 
felt sure was to end all earthly things with me. 'Twas just at 
sundown; the heavy timber where we were was casting a gloom 
over everything before the shades of night had set in. Our 
flag of truce had been sent forward and the prisoners were 
resting after a hard day's march. We thought we were near 
our forces, and the flag had gone forward to ascertain if that 
was true, when a band of rebel cavalry burst on us from the 
deep woods ; the prisoners took them for our friends, and they 
took us for Union soldiers. I saw the mistake at a glance, and 
saw what had escaped the notice of the others that the rebels 
were coming with their carbines presented. I tried to stop our 
men (the prisoners), from their wild shouts which were taken 
by the rebels as yells of defiance, but my voice was drowned ; 
there we stood 200 or 300. On came the rebels with furious 
speed, when just as I had committed my spirit- to Him who gave 
it, I heard a loud shout from a different direction, and raising 
my eyes to see what new danger was at hand I espied the Col. 
in command of our escort running at the top of his speed (for 
he was not mounted then), and waving his flag of truce, and in 
thunder tones calling on his friends not to fire, he was coming 
between us and the advancing host. Ihstantly every gun was 
lowered and we were saved. I made friends with our guards, 
some of whom were noble fellows. I was in command under 
them of the prisoners, our senior officers having been sent by 
another route, or were so disabled that they could not take 
command, and when we parted with the guard at our lines at 
Columbus, it seemed like parting with friends. I shook hands 
with the colonel and corporal and said I hoped we would be 
able to return the compliment before long. I came home, and 
in less than ten days I had the privilege of meeting one of our 
guards on his way to Camp Butler, a prison carnp, he with a 
number of others having been taken by my own company on 
the field at " Parker's Cross-Roads," Tenn., Forrest's adjutant, 
who signed our paroles, being one of the number. In May, 1862, 
(if I remember rightly the date), I was exchanged and returned 
to the field. Some time that fall we started for the Tennessee 
river by way of luka, Tishomingo co.. Miss., my brother " Lew " 
being in the cavalry, and belonging to our corps was with our 
rear guard and had a skirmish with Forrest's cavalry who were 
hanging on our rear. During the fight some of brother's men 



got quite close to the rebels and they talked back and forth. 
The rebels enquired for Captain Cowen ; of- course they knew 
Capt. Cowen as he was their capt. But in the conversation 
that ensued with the ' Johnnies ' they couldn't make out how 
they had learned about him ; and after the skirmish they 
wanted to know of their capt. how he came to be on such inti- 
mate terms with the rebels. He was badly puzzled over it until 
he afterwards met me. I was in the battle at Nashville, and 
the last battle of the war, ' Blakely,' Ala., besides several oth- 
ers. After the war, being out of business, I determined to do 
what I had long had a desire to do, but which I had never be- 
fore found the opportunity for, and I at once entered upon the 
study of .the law. Borrowing a volume of 'Blackstone' I be- 
gan and pursued my studies at home without an instructor, and 
after finding that I could master its intricacies I purchased 
books as I needed, and after a year or two was admitted to the 
bar, and have ever since been engaged in that profession. In 
1 88 1 I was nominated by the Republicans of the 40th sena- 
torial district as their candidate for the lower house of our Gen- 
eral Assembly, served in the regular and called session of ^26. 
Assembly. Was renominated last fall, but the Republicans 
put up 2 candidates ; I was defeated by a division of ray own 
party. Was 1883 publisher of local Republican paper, the Fi'r- 
den Recorder, which was started by a stock company 1880." See

Hon. William Fiske* Cleveland, the subject of this sketch, 
was born at Waterville, Oneida County, New York, on the 30th 
day of Aug., 1844, and is the youngest of 4 children born to Dr. 
George W. and Almira B. Cleveland. 

In 1861, he was graduated from the Waterville seminary, 
and at once, in accordance with the wishes of his father, entered 
upon the study of medicine ; but after a few months' applica- 
tion, from a natural disinclination to the profession, he gave up 
the work, and entered a retail dry goods store in his native 
town. Prompted by a natural desire to see more of the world, 
four years later he removed to Louisville, Ky., and afterwards 
to Nashville, Tenn., where he was employed in a large hat, cap, 
and fur establishment. In the spring of 1867, he engaged in 
business for himself, in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, and 
there continued until 1876. On the 2d of October 187 1, he was 
joined in marriage to Miss Kate L. Collins of Galena. 

In the autumn of 1877, after having spent a year in the ser- 
vice of the government in Wyoming, he became a resident of 
■ Shelby Countj^, Iowa, and in the spring of the following year, 


established a general mercantile business in the town of Shelby, 
where he continued to reside until his election to the office of 
treasurer of his county. To this office he was re-elected in 
1887, and in 1889, he was honored with the nomination and 
election, by the Democratic party, of State Senator from the 
i8th senatorial district, composed of the counties of Cass and 
Shelby. During- the four years of his term in the state senate, 
Mr. Cleveland became the recognized leader of his party, and 
left his impress upon the legislation of the 23d and 24th Gen- 
eral Assemblies (i 890-1 894). 

In 1893, Senator Cleveland intermarried with Mrs. Ella 
Pratt {nee Noble), a lady of many accomplishments and graces ; 
to them has been born a daughter, Dorothy, who, no less than 
her sister, Miss Anna, assists in making the home of Senator 
Cleveland one of the most hospitable in the city of Harlan. 

From the days of his boyhood, Mr. Cleveland has been a 
communicant of the Protestant Episcopal Church, and is at 
present the Senior Warden of St. Paul's, in the city of his resi- 

Of the Masonic fraternity, the subject of this brief article 
has been, from his 21st year, an active member and an honored 
officer. Made a mason by his father when he had barely passed 
his majority, at Waterville, N. Y., he received the Capitular de- 
grees and passed the cryptic circle in Nashville, and had the 
orders of Christian Knighthood conferred upon him by the In- 
visible Friends' Commandery in New Orleans, La. 

Always active in Masonic circles, he became especially so 
when, after his removal to Harlan, the County seat of Shelby 
County, Iowa, he was chosen the first Eminent Commander of 
Mt. Zion Commandery, No. 49, stationed at Harlan, Iowa, and 
later the Right Eminent Grand Commander of the Grand Com- 
mandery of Knights Templars of Iowa, and as such led the 
Iowa contingent at the Denver Conclave in August, 1892. As 
an officer, it is but faint praise to say that the Masonic frater- 
nity has never had a more competent one at the head of the 
lines ; as a citizen, in all of the positions of honor, trust, and 
confidence which he has been called to fill, he has proved him- 
self to be an able, honest, faithful, and conscientious public ser- 
vant ; in all the walks of life he has ably and consistently per- 
formed the duties incumbent upon him, ever remembering 
that one's own interests must not conflict with the rights of 
others. He is a scholarly and effective speaker, a successful 
business man, and in his family and social relations a most ex- 
emplary man. He has been through his life a brilliant, intelli- 
gent, cultivated gentleman, genial and courteous in his manners, 
pleasant, entertaining, and instructive in his conversation, and 
devotedly fond of his friends. That he may long be spared is 
the heart-felt wish of his many social, business, political, relig- 
ious, and masonic friends.
