PREFACE. 



This volume contains an account of the family or families 
named in the title page and of their descendants. The full work, 
in five parts, contains all that is known to the compiler concerning 
the Clark, Parks, Brockman and Dean families and their descend- 
ants, his ancestors and kindred ; and of the Davis and Goss fam- 
ilies and their descendants, the ancestors and kindred of his be- 
loved wife, now deceased. 

The separate parts are: No. I. The Clark Family; No. II. 
The Parks Family ; No. III. The Brockman and Dean Families ; 
No. IV. The Davis Family, and No. V. The Goss Family. 

He engaged in the work with no intention of publishing it, but 
instead he intended simply to leave a manuscript copy to his chil- 
dren. After many inquiries as to his purpose, and with expres- 
sions of desire from many persons to possess a copy, he deter- 
mined to publish it in book form. He so announced, enlarged the 
scope, invoked the aid of his friends, and has devoted much time 
and patient labor collecting information for use in its preparation. 
The work has assumed proportions greatly beyond his expecta- 
tion. 

The chronology of persons and families has had special atten- 
tion. This, however, is not the highest function of genealogy, 
valuable though it be in tracing and proving a line of descent 
and relationship, but it is the preserving and presenting to our 
contemplation the lives and real character of our ancestors and 
kindred. This has been kept prominent and becomes therefore an 
interesting feature of the work. 

Each of the several parts of the work comprises a distinct line, 
and the persons are named in the order of birth, so far as the 
facts were obtainable. In some of the parts eight generations 
are accounted for. 

There is a system of reference by numbers, thus enabling one 
with facility to trace the lineage and ascertain the exact relation- 
ship of any person named in the book with any other person. 
There are some remarkable genealogical tracings, degrees of re- 



iv Preface. 

lationship, the result of inter-marriage in related families, and 
some of these it will be found impracticable to define. 

There are a number of pages arranged for continuing the family- 
record in direct line of descent. Thus may be added many genera- 
tions and so the work will become an heirloom of value in the 
coming centuries. 

The work has been to the compiler a labor of love rather than 
profit. If he has succeeded in rescuing from oblivion the names 
and deeds of some of his ancestors and numerous kindred, he 
will in some measure be compensated for his arduous labor, and 
though his success has not been commensurate with his wishes 
and efforts, he trusts his labors have not been in vain. It is a 
matter of regret that not only the names of some but the deeds 
of many equally worthy have not been obtained for use in its 
preparation. He is greatly indebted, however, to his friends for 
the prompt manner in which many of them have responded to 
his request for information, and for words of cheer and encour- 
agement, and to these is largely due whatever of success he has 
achieved. He wishes especially to acknowledge his obligation to 
his esteemed friend and kinswoman, Mrs. Alfred W. Parks, of 
Clifton, S. C, for information relating to the Parks family; to his 
friend, his wife's kinsman. Dr. J. D. Garrard, late of Birmingham, 
Ala., for information relating to the Davis and Goss families ; to 
Dr. Thomas M. Owen, Director of the Department of Archives 
and History of Alabama, for courteous and generous aid in the 
preparation of the work; and finally to his very dear mother, but 
for whose intelligence and great strength of memory he should 
never have known so much of his ancestry and collateral kindred. 

To his mother he dedicates the work in loving and tender mem- 
ory and affection.

PART I 



The Clark Family 



THE CLARK FAMILY. 



ORIGIN OF THE NAME. 

The name "Clark" is of distinguished derivation. The follow- 
ing account of its origin, prepared by Eleanor Lexington, will 
therefore form an interesting introduction to the genealogy of the 
particular family here treated: 

"The name Clark is derived from 'clericus,' meaning a priest, 
or one connected with the service of the Church. 

"At first the term was used only to designate those in clerical 
orders, but as in early times the Church was the only source of 
learning, any person who had been educated by the clergy event- 
ually came to be called a 'clerk.' The designation was finally 
given to all who were able to read and write. 

"So distinguished a name was eagerly coveted. Hence its fre- 
quency, many people adding 'le clerk' to their names. This was 
finally dropped, and only Clerk left, or, as it was pronounced, 
Clark. The final 'e' is an addition in later times. 

"Compounds of the name are Beauclark, the good Clark ; Mau- 
clerk, the bad Clark ; Kenclerk, the knowing Clark ; and Petyclerk, 
the little Clark. 

"The name Milo le Clerk is found in the 'One Hundred Rolls,' 
compiled in the reign of Edward I., which contain records of the 
persons who owned lands in the time of William the Conqueror, 
for which they paid rent in money, sheep or hens, or gave their 
service as soldiers. Several Domesday tenants are designated 
'Clericus.' 

"An interesting tradition connects the Clark family by marriage 
with that of the descendants of Joseph of Arimathea. After the 
Crucifixion, Joseph was banished from Judea. In company with 
Philip the Apostle, Mary, Martha, Lazarus and a servant, Mar- 
cilia, he was put into a vessel without sails or oars and set adrift, 
to perish on the sea. The ship was thrown upon the French 
coast. Joseph finally found his way to Britain, where he founded 
a church at Glastonbury, to which place thousands of the devout,

in the Middle Ages, journeyed every year to see the blossoming 
of the sacred thorn on Christmas day. 

"Upon what authority the tradition of the connection of the 
family of Clark with Joseph rests, history maintains a discreet 
silence. It gives the tradition, and leaves the rest to the imagi- 
nation." 



FIRST GENERATION. 
1. 

The earliest account we have of the Clark family is of four 
brothers and one sister, descendants of English ancestry, the date 
of whose emigration to America is not known. These were all 
born in Amelia Co., Va., and were: 

Thomas, William, Dudley, George and Nancy. Nancy married 
a Greenwood in N. C. 

We have no further knowledge of these except Thomas, the 
eldest, who was born about 1753 and who married a widow, Pris- 
cilla Tucker, of N. C, whose maiden name was Doyle. 

THOMAS CLARK was a farmer though a man of small 
means. He left Va. and settled in N. C, where he remained 
some years and then moved to Spartanburg district, S. C, and 
later on to Laurens district, where he lived about twenty years, 
and was then removed with his wife to the State of Ga. by his 
son John. He died at the home of his son William, in Newton 
county, Ga., in 1837, aged eighty-four years. The widow died 
some years later at the home of John Clark, is Jasper county, 
Ga., about ninety years of age. They were buried in the family 
graveyard at the home of William Clark in Newton county, Ga. 

Priscilla Tucker Clark had two brothers and one sister, James, 

John and Sallie Doyle. Of these we have no information. There 
were born to her by her first husband. Tucker, one son and three 
daughters: Starling, Fanny, Martha and Mary. Of these we 
will give a further account later. (See Appendix No. 216.) 
The children of Thomas Clark and his wife Priscilla were : 

2. i. Elizabeth Doyle , b. Mar. 25. 1775 ; m. John Wallace. 

3. ii. GiLLAM, b. about 1777; m. Nancy Waldrop. 

4. iii. John, b. Nov. 19, 1780; m. Susan Parks. 

5. iv. William, b. Aug. 21, 1782; m. Judith Craddock. 

6. V. Nancy, b. about 1784; m. Henry Burdett.

SECOND GENERATION. 

2. 

ELIZABETH DOYLE=^ CLARK (i) was born in N. C, Mar. 
25, 1775, and married John Wallace, a farmer of Laurens dis- 
trict, S. C, Mar. 19, 1796. 

Mr. Wallace was born in 1774 and died Aug. 6, 1824. Mrs. 
Wallace died Oct. 24, 1854, at the home of her son Walton in 
Chambers Co., Ala. Their children were six sons and five daugh- 
ters (order of birth conjectural) : 

i. Starling', b. Jan. 11, 17—; d. May 4, 1810. 
ii. Thomas Doyle, b. Mar. 15, 1800; d. Aug. 20. 1802. 

7. iii. Walton Washington, b. Jan. 17, 1803; m. Nancy Mc- 

Veigh, 
iv. Frances, b. ; m. Henry Holcom in Laurens 

district, S. C. They moved to Buncombe Co., N. C. 
V. Odelia, b. ; never married; lived with her 

widowed sister, Mrs. William Sims, in Newton Co., Ga., 

for many years, 
vi. Alfred CotesworTh, b. Mar. 24, 1809; d. July 26, 1826. 

8. vii. John Welsey. b. Mar. 31, 181 1; m. Louisa A. Felder. 
viii. Eliza, b. ; m. Wm. Sims; d. Dec. 31, 1891. 

(See Appendix No. 217.) 
g. ix. Selena Mira, b. 1814; m. Noah Fairbairn. 

X. Louisa, m. James Blakely. They moved to Miss. 
xi. Welsey Wilds, m. Miss Rutherford, of Rutherford Co., 
N. C. They moved to Miss., and d. after the Civil 
War, he in Miss, and she in Ark. 



GILLAM- CLARK (i) was born in N. C. about 1777 and at 
about twenty years of age married Nancy Waldrop in the vState 
of S. C. There were born to this union seven or eight children. 
One of these, James, lived one year with his uncle, William 
Clark, in Newton Co., Ga., about 1835 to 1838. Gillam with his 
family moved to Ala. and settled near Huntsville. His wife died 
and he married again. It is thought the family moved to Miss. 
We have lost all trace of them. 

4. 

JOHN^ CLARK (i) was born in N. C, Nov. 19, 1780, and 
received a good common school education. In early life he emi- 
grated to S. C, settling in Laurens district, and about 1806 was 
elected to the office of sheriff, and was re-elected and succeeded

himself for several terms, serving seven or more years. He was 
called the High Sheriff, and as was the custom at that day, pre- 
ceded the Judge of the Court to and from the Court House with 
drawn sword and cocked hat in vindication of the law, an 
English custom. He was a volunteer soldier in the war of 1812 
between the United States and Great Britain, as shown by the 
following from the War Department: 

Department oe the Interior, 
Bureau of Pensions, 
Washington, D. C, Aug. 14, 1902. 
Sir : In reply to your communication of recent date, you are advised 
that, as shown by the records of this Bureau, Susan Clark was pensioned 
as the widow of John Clark on account of his service in Capt. N. T. 
Martin's company. South Carolina Militia, from February i, 1814, to 
August 10, i8i4j War of 1812. 

Very respectfully, 

E. S. Ware, 
Commissioner. 
Mr. H. W. Clark, 

222 Columbus St., 

Montgomery, Ala. 

Returning from the war he stopped with a comrade, one Parks, 
at the home of his parents, and there met his fate in the person of 
Susan, a sister of his comrade and daughter of Thomas and 
Annie Parks, of Laurens district, S. C. Feb. 25, 1816, he and 
Susan Parks were united in marriage at the home of her parents. 

They remained in Laurens district about fourteen years, where 
he was engaged at farming near the Enoree River, his farm being 
on Durban's Creek, a tributary of that stream. In the latter part 
of 1829 he vv'ith his family moved to the State of Ga., resided one 
year in Newton Co., and then settled in Jasper Co., where he had 
purchased a home and farm. 

John Clark owned and had emancipated, as a result of the 
Civil War, about fifty negro slaves. He was a humane master, 
fed and clothed his slaves well and allotted them small parcels of 
land and opportunities to cultivate the same for their own use. 
After his slaves were emancipated most of them remained about 
him and cultivated his lands and were ever respectful to old mas- 
ter and old mistis. Notably one of these, a man named Gilbert, 
was a powerful man physically and was a most valuable slave as 
an ordinary farm laborer. He and his good wife, Minerva, two 
Christian-hearted negroes, were, after they were emancipated,

good friends and neighbors of their former owners, ever 
ready to do them any service. John Clark was a life-long 
partisan Democrat. He was never an aspirant for political office, 
never very active in political work, but kept well informed on 
the political issues of his day and time, and always gave loyal 
support to the nominees of his party. At the solicitation of his 
neighbors he accepted the office of magistrate for his precinct, 
served in that capacity for many years and made an enviable 
reputation for impartial, intelligent and faithful discharge of 
official duty. He died Nov. 27, 1870, at the advanced age of 
ninety years and eight days, and was buried in the family grave- 
yard at the family homestead, where they had resided for forty 
years. 

Mrs. Susan (Parks) Clark was born in Laurens district, S. C, 
Feb. 24, 1796. She was one of the best housewives it is the for- 
tune of man to be blest with. Intelligent and entertaining, with 
a happy faculty for making friends ; as housekeeper, industrious 
and skilled in domestic handcraft ; a congenial companion and 
true helpmeet. She was ever solicitious for the success in life 
and happiness of her children, ever ready by precept and example, 
and by word of cheer to lure them on to honorable and useful 
lives. She lived and suffered and loved and lost and dreamed 
and struggled to attain till she grew rich throughout and ripened 
and matured like a fruit. She was a woman of truth, repose, 
experience, feeling and grasp. A sister to your labor, a valiant 
comrade in the great battle of life ; a woman of strength like a 
gulf stream to your love. She was a sympathetic and helpful 
neighbor, ever ready to go to the aid of the afflicted, ever found 
beside the bed of her sick neighbor as nurse and counselor ; a 
true minister of mercy. In her later life, and before she was her- 
self stricken with paralysis, much of her time was given to the 
noble work of ministering to the sick of her community, and she 
so left a halo of grateful memory about the last years of her 
long and useful life, and though dead for more than twenty 
years the fragrance of her life still lingers in the community 
in which she lived. The memory of such a woman deserves to 
be cherished lovingly and tenderly ; she is an inspiration, the 
hope of the world. She died Aug. 5, 1880, after some years of 
patient suffering from paralysis, aged 84 years and 11 days, at

the home of her daughter, Mrs. Mary L. Pope, near Monticello, 
Ga., who had tenderly and lovingly ministered to her in her 
affliction. She was buried beside her husband in the family 
graveyard at the old homestead, her home for half a century. 
The religion of the family was Baptist. Their children were :

Davis. 

11. ii. Thomas Franklin, b. Feb. 21, 1818; twice m.

DR. COURTNEY JAMES^ CLARK (4) was born Oct. 27, 
1816, in Laurens district, S. C. He received an ordinary aca- 
demic education, read medicine and began the practice of his pro- 
fession at the early age of twenty, at Jacksonville, Calhoun Co. 
(then Benton Co.) Ala., where he soon took a creditable position 
in his chosen profession. His first medical studies were under 



14 Genealogy of 

Dr. John Robert Clark, his cousin, who had a large general store 
at Double Cabins, Henry Co., Ga., in which the subject of this 
sketch was a clerk, as well as a student. His first course of medi- 
cal lectures was taken at Augusta, Ga. ; his second at Louisville, 
Ky., and his third and last at Jefferson Medical College, Philadel- 
phia, acquitting himself with credit, and graduating with honors 
at each of the two last named. 

In the war with Mexico he was First Assistant Surgeon of the 
Alabama Volunteers ; when the regiment was mustered out, the 
time of enlistment having expired he was asked by the command- 
ing ofiicer of the Palmetto Regiment to serve as surgeon of that 
regiment to fill a vacancy. He accepted the position temporarily 
and upon the request of the Governor of South Carolina served 
through with this regiment. He was on the staff of General 
Scott at the capture of the City of Mexico and riding with him 
selected for the wounded a palace of the Montezumas as a hos- 
pital. After a ratification of the treaty of peace he returned 
to Jacksonville, Ala., to resume the practice of his profession. 
He received a splendid gold medal voted him by the State of 
South Carolina for his service with the Palmetto Regiment. 

He devoted himself actively to his profession greatly aided by 
his hospital experience and his reputation as a surgeon called his 
services into demand over several counties. 

He had a literary turn of mind, was fond of the classics and 
pursued the study of Spanish, a taste for which he had acquired 
by force of circumstances in Mexico. He was one oi a coterie of 
men who made a small part of the Jacksonville Republican's 
reputation in the state for literary style, force and brilliancy; 
notably was this the case in the political contest for the liquida- 
tion of the State Bank. Dr. Clark ably espoused with his pen, 
the election of Governor Martin on this issue in 1845. 

Feb. 16, 1853, Dr. Clark married Nancy Walker Davis. 

In 1 861 he entered the service of his state as a volunteer in the 
Confederate States Army and was appointed Chief Surgeon of the 
Tenth Alabama Regiment, Colonel John H. Forney command- 
ing. His first service actively was upon the bloody field of the 
First Manassas. His abilities were quickly recognized and he 
was placed in charge of the Alabama Hospitals in Richmond, 
where he remained until they were closed and then he was or-

dered to Montgomery where he continued to minister to the sick 
and wounded Confederates until Wilson's advance Apr. 10-12, 
1865, forced him to leave or surrender. With a corps of assist- 
ants and a few nurses he followed the remnant of a tattered army 
to Columbus, Ga., where he was compelled by his duties to the 
wounded to surrender. He however never left the operating 
room as the Federals invited him to assist in the care of some of 
their wounded which he did in the same quarters. As a mark of 
appreciation he was presented by the commanding officer of the 
Federals with a fine set of surgical instruments long afterwards 
prized and used by him. The fine pair of surgeon shears he pre- 
sented to his wife on his return to his home in Jacksonville. 

In 1866 Dr. Clark removed to Selma where he took a promi- 
nent position in his profession as well as in matters pertaining to 
the organizing, fostering and improving the public school sys- 
tem. He was largely instrumental in separating the school from 
the uncertain mill of municipal politics as to the money for its 
maintenance. While a member of the City Council and thus 
during the period of Reconstruction when the negroes and "car- 
pet-baggers" and "scalawags" were in power he succeeded in se- 
curing an amendment to the city charter which sets apart a large 
share of the city's revenue for the public schools, placing the 
funds in the control of a self-perpetuating board of the most 
reputable citizens of Selma. The Board of Trustees of Dallas 
Academy named the fine colored school building the "Clark 
School" in his honor. 

It was as a surgeon that Dr. Clark made most reputation, not 
only in Alabama but in the circle of skilled members of the pro- 
fession in many portions of the United States. He performed 
many pieces of surgery not theretofore attempted, notably in 
tracheatomy, ankle and thigh work. He was the inventor of two 
surgical instruments, one a placenta hook much used now. 

Dr. Clark was a member of the Presbyterian Church, a kind 
hearted physician an indulgent father and a loyal friend ; of out- 
ward stern and reserved manner, acquired in two army experi- 
ences, he was full of tenderness and affection for those endeared 
to him. 

In politics he was a partisan Democrat of unwavering devotion 
to his people through every vicissitude. He only consented to the 



1 6 Genealogy of 

use of his personal popularity by the Democrats to elect him to 
the City Council of Selma at a time when political adventurers 
and negroes were plundering the city and piling up bonded in- 
debtedness ; other than this he declined because of his large pro- 
fessional business. 

After a life filled with usefulness and good deeds he, as he ex- 
pressed it was expecting to go to sleep as one who had diligently 
labored all the day, rested from his labors; he died Aug. i6, 
1893, at Jacksonville, Ala., and was buried beside his wife in the 
Live Oak Cemetery, Selma, Ala. A monument marks the 
graves. 

Nancy Walker Davis Clark was the daughter of Thomas 
and Laurania Davis who at one time resided in Butts Co., 
Ga. Nancy Walker Davis was born at Montevallo, Shelby 
Co., Ala., Oct. 23, 1833. Her parents removed to Natchitoches 
Parish, La. Nancy was nominally adopted by her maternal uncle. 
Judge Thomas A. Walker, of Jacksonville, Ala. She received 
her education in the schools of her adopted town. She was a 
great favorite with her uncle and at his death her children in- 
herited the major portion of Judge Walker's handsome estate. 
She was a devout member of the Presbyterian Church. Her 
domestic traits were exceptional as housewife, mother and nurse, 
often aiding her husband in nursing his patients. Mrs. Clark was 
one of the organizers of the Confederate Memorial Association in 
Selma, Ala. ; was for some years president of the same and was 
one of the few active members who pursued unfaltering the work 
of erecting the monument to the Confederate dead in Live Oak 
Cemetery. Her sunny cheerful disposition kept her raven locks 
in their pristine beauty to the last years of her life, untouched by 
Time's finger tips. She passed to her well-earned reward Mar. 
19, 1892.

ELOISA ANN^ CLARK (4) was born in Laurens district, S. 
C, Dec. II, 1823, and received her education in the common 
schools. She was united in marriage to John Gazaway McNair 
of Henry Co., Ga., Jan. 22, 1845, ^^ the residence of her parents 
in Jasper Co., Ga, 

John G. McNair was born in Columbia Co., Ga., Nov. 27, 1818, 
and was educated in the common schools. They resided in Hen- 
ry and Newton Counties, Ga., for many years. Mr. McNair was 
a farmer by occupation, made a comfortable competency, pro- 
vided well for his family and lived a quiet and unassuming life. 
He was a _^good and law-abiding citizen and esteemed by his 
neighbors as an upright and good man. In the matter of re- 
ligious faith Mr. McNair was a Presbyterian and his wife 
though of a Baptist family went with him to the church of his 
choice. He served as a volunteer in the Confederate States Army, 
war of 1861-5. He died at Conyers, Rockdale Co., Ga.. Oct. 27, 
1892. The widow, Mrs, Eloisa A. McNair, is, this 1903, living 
and for many years has made her home with her son-in-law and 
daughter Mr, and Mrs, Penn, of Monticello, Ga. She is now in 
her eightieth year and remarkably healthy and vigorous for a 
person of her age. She reads and sews without glasses and ex- 
ecutes most beautiful handiwork. Ever industrious and frugal, 
modest and unassuming, never happier than when at work. She 
is pleasantly spending the remaining years of a long and useful 
life with her children.

degree of fulness and detail which do not appear in many other sketches. 
In doing this he feels that he is not subject to the charge of vanity or self 
laudation. It is chiefly a history of a strenuous business life. Such de- 
tails are altogether admissible in a work of this character, and were they 
omitted his family and descendants would doubtless search in vain for them 
in time to come.

Ga., when he was but a child, in 1829. There he grew up on the 
farm, assisting at farm labor and receiving an ordinary common 
school education. He was trained to habits of industry and fru- 
gality, and this training was of much value to him in after life. 
He professed religion, when about fifteen years old and joined 
Bethlehem Baptist Church, a Missionary Baptist organization 
in the vicinity of the parental homestead. In after years and 
while residing in Montgomery Co., Ala., he was for many years 
clerk of the church of his membership, and was liberal with his 
means in support of the church and village school. 

In the fall of 1847 H. W. Clark settled in Chambers Co., Ala., 
and began a mercantile business in co-partnership with his broth- 
er-in-law Benjamin J. Flowers, under the style and firm name of 
Flowers & Clark. This co-partnership was dissolved in the win- 
ter of 1 85 1 -2. 

In the spring of 1853 he, with his little family, wife and two 
children, moved to and settled at Pinelevel, Montgomery Co., 
Ala., where he again engaged in merchandising and in the course 
of a few years built up a fine business, and was in the midst of 
a prosperous trade when the Civil War began in 1861. He had 
established a good credit in New York, could buy all the goods 
he could handle and had promise of a very successful career as 
a merchant. The war dissipated all that. 

Because of physical disabilities he was not in the Confed- 
erate Army, though he had no less than seventeen brothers and 
brothers-in-law in that memorable conflict. 

In 1862 he closed out his mercantile business and was actively 
engaged at milling, tanning, &c., until the close of the war. Dur- 
ing the war he invested some money in lands and not a little in 
cotton, and these investments proved to be very profitable, es- 
pecially the latter, and when the war closed he was able to make 
satisfactory settlement of a large indebtedness in New York and 
elsewhere and have an ample competency left with which to be- 
gin life anew in the new-born, though prostrate South; new in 
the new order of things, prostrate financially, and politically under 
the heel of the carpet-bagger, the scallazvag and the negro. 

In the month of May, 1870, Mr. Clark moved to the City of 
Montgomery, and in the fall of that year took possession of a 
purchase he had made, property bounded by Houston, Hilliard,

Pelham and Garrison streets, for which he paid ten thousand 
dollars. Here he resided for twenty-nine years and reared his 
large family of seven sons and one daughter. 

For some years after settling in Montgomery he was engaged 
in the business of life insurance, being the general agent and 
manager of the Southern Life Insurance Company for Ala. In 
1876 he engaged in the manufacture and sale of yellow pine 
lumber, and was thus employed about twelve years. In 1881 
he was attacked with bronchitis from which he has never re- 
covered and much of his time and means have been devoted to 
the care of his health. For ten or more years he has entirely 
retired from active business pursuits. 

In politics he has been a life long Democrat, but never an as- 
pirant for political office. Never being active in political work; 
never a slave to party lash. Never voted else than a Democratic 
ticket, but had the courage of his convictions and refused to 
vote for W. J. Bryan as the nominee of the party for President 
of U. S. in 1896, because he did not approve of the financial 
policy of the candidate.

H. W. Clark's wife, Mary Susan, daughter of David Wright, 
a well-to-do farmer, was born in Newton Co., Ga., Dec. 6, 1828. 
They were married at the residence of her parents in Chambers 
Co., Ala., Sept. 19, 1848, her uncle Elder Benajah Goss offici- 
ating. She received her education in the common schools and 
was trained to habits of industry and economy by her mother, 
who was a good farmer's wife. She was a young woman of at- 
tractive personality with a happy faculty for entertaining her 
friends. She made a frugal and industrious house-keeper, and 
although only twenty years old when married, she had made 
more than ordinary preparation for house-keeping. She was of 
a sympathetic nature, pitied the poor and afflicted and was ever 
ready to render them aid and comfort. She was always solici- 
tous for the wellfare and happiness of her children ; was a con- 
sistent member of the Baptist Church, which she joined in early 
life, and had an abiding faith in the promises of the gospel, 
seeming never to doubt her final salvation. She blessed the life 
of her husband as only a true and loving wife could do. She 
died at the family residence, Houston street, Montgomery, Ala., 
Sept. 12, 1893, and her remains were interred in the family lot in 
the city cemetery.

MARY LUCY^ CLARK (4), twin sister of Martha Susan, 
was born in Laurens district, S. C, Mar. i, 1827, and came with 
her parents to the State of Ga., when not quite three years of 
age. She received her education in the common schools and was 
married at the early age of sixteen, a thing not uncommon in 
those days, to John Collins Pope, Apr. 6, 1843, and to them were 
born and raised seven children. Mrs. Pope has been always a 
tireless and energetic worker and made a splendid helpmate to 
her husband. During the times of the civil war and those fol- 
lowing, when people were thrown as never before or since on 
their own resources, in order to procure something to eat and 
wear, she set her inventive mind to work as well as her busy 
hands and helped to feed and clothe her family by spinning, 
weaving and making cotton and woolen garments; ladies' and 
gents' hats out of native grasses, wheat straw and poplar bark. 
She had on so many occasions made something useful or beauti- 
ful out of apparently nothing but a pile of rubbish, that one of her 
sons-in-law remarked one day, that he believed she could rum- 
mage around in the storage garret of her house and make any- 
thing from a knitting needle to a steam engine. 

She is not content unless at work and happiest when working 
or administering to others. Though seventy-seven years of age, 
she devotes a large part of her time to fancy lace work and em- 
broidery, and many of her friends and kin are richer in these 
dainty valuables, owing to her generosity. Forgetfulness of self, 
love towards all and enmity to none ; devotion in time of trouble 
as well as in time of happiness, are mere attribute of her beautiful 
Christian character. She is a consistent member of the Baptist 
Church. 

John Collins Pope was bom in Oglethorpe Co., Ga., Feb. 12, 
181 5, of Josiah and Fanny Pope. 

He died from the effects of a stroke of paralysis at his home 
near Monticello, Ga., Oct. 19, 1893. Moving with his parents to 
Jasper Co. when about twelve years of age, being next to the old- 
est boy in an already large and poor family, he was unable to 
go to school at all, but worked daily in the field in their behalf. 
Though uneducated he was a man of keen intelligence and spark-

ling wit. By time he was grown, his father, aided by his large 
family of boys, had grown prosperous and added many acres of 
land to the small tract that he purchased when first moving to his 
new home. After his marriage his loving wife, with more than 
ordinary industry and economy, helped him to accumulate and 
add to the small tract that his father gave him until it was not 
many years before they had a nice farm of several hundred 
acres of land and a number of servants. He was an almost tire- 
less worker, and in the days of his greatest prosperity, worked 
as hard if not harder than any slave he had. He was never hap- 
pier than when hard at work and kept it up to the time when he 
was stricken with the disease that resulted in his death. He 
raised a large family of three girls and four boys and gave to 
each one the benefits of an education, of which he had been de- 
prived and which he keenly felt. 

Mr. Pope was a man of fine feelings and of rugged honesty. 
In all his long and useful life he was never known to compromise 
with truth and honor in any transaction. He responded to his 
country's call for men to defend her and went to Macon and en- 
listed in the Confederate service, and was sent back to Jasper Co. 
as a "home guard," where he did good service in looking after 
the families of younger soldiers who had been sent to the front; 
among the latter, one of his own sons only i6 years of age. 
Though financially wrecked by the terrible outcome of the war, 
he never lost heart but met the situation as only a brave man 
could and started immediately with might and main to retrieve his 
broken and shattered fortune. He was fully aided and abetted 
by his brave and energetic wife and it was not many years be- 
fore they were living in at least comfortable circumstances, pay- 
ing off in full, dollar for dollar, all that the war had left them 
indebted for, 

Mr. Pope was noted for his hospitality. Besides the numer- 
ous family connection that found such a delightful and hospitable 
reception at all times, as well as a large number of friends who 
delighted to visit at his home, he never turned away any one no 
matter how tough or disreputable looking they appeared, but 
furnished them both meals and lodging. His motto was that he 
had rather feed and administer to the comfort of a score of un-

For two years after marriage, Mr. Flowers was engaged in

with his family to Chambers Co., Ala., where he was engaged in 
Merchandising in co-partnership with the writer until the winter 
of 1 85 1 -2, under the firm name of Flowers & Clark, when this 
partnership was dissolved by mutual consent. He with his fam- 
ily returned to the State of Ga., and settled in Newton Co., and 
again engaged in farming, &c. He was a volunteer soldier in 
the Confederate States Army during the Civil War. Mr. Flowers 
was an intelligent man and a good and respected citizen. He 
was a man of strong convictions, always defending his conclu- 
sions when formed on any subject. In the matter of politics he 
was a Democrat. In religious faith a Methodist, but was toler- 
ant and respectful to persons of all creeds. His wife though of 
a Baptist family went with him to the church of his choice. She

band, and still survives him this 1903. She resides at Eagle

JOHN PARKS^ CLARK (4) was born in Newton Co., Ga., 
Jan. 15, 1830. He received his early education in the common 
schools of the neighborhood in which he was reared, and attended 
college at Oxford, Ga., one or more terms. He read law, intend- 
ing to engage in the practice of that profession but abandoned 
that intention and was not admitted to the bar, 

John P. Clark entered the service of the Confederate States as 
a volunteer private of the Tenth Regiment Alabama Volunteers, 
at Montgomery, Ala., in 1861, and served with that regiment for 
some years. He was a brave and gallant soldier, never shirking 
duty nor shrinking from danger. He was wounded in battle 
several times and near the close of the war was transferred to the 
Cavalry service. He was united in marriage Oct. 26, 1869, at 
Union Springs, Ala., to Mrs. Mary Ellen Norman Marks, a 
widow of culture and refinement without children. She was 
born of a prominent family in Columbus, Ga., July 15, 1836. 
They resided for a time at Union Springs, then at Eufaula, Ala., 
and a few years later moved to Atlanta, Ga., where the family 
has since resided. For many years they have resided at No. 90 
Merritts Ave., where they have a comfortable home and an in- 
teresting family. Mr. Clark's business was Professor of Music, 
piano tuning and repairing being his chief business and in which 
he made an enviable reputation and enjoyed a liberal patronage. 
He died at Covington, Ga., Dec. 25, 1902, surrounded by his 
family and friends after a brief illness of about one week, during 
which time all that medical skill and k v^ing friends could do to 
relieve him was without avail. He was buried at the cemetery 
in Atlanta, his home for many years. He was a member of the 
Presbyterian Church. Children:

EMILY JUDITH^ CLARK (4) was born in Jasper Co., Ga., 
May 24, 1 83 1, was educated in the common schools and was uni- 
ted in marriage at the residence of her parents, to Robert J. 
Brooks, Oct. 19, 1852. They resided for some time at Snapping 
Shoals, Ga., moved thence to Morrisville, Calhoun Co., Ala., 
where he was employed in a manufacturing establishment. He 
returned with his family to Snapping Shoals, Newton Co., Ga., 
thence went to Griffin, Ga. Brooks was a skilled mechanic and 
in the winter of 1859-60, moved with his family to Pinelevel, 
Montgomery Co., Ala, where he began the manufacture of sash, 
doors, blinds, furniture, gins, &c., and was thus engaged when 
the war between the States began in 186 1. It was soon apparent 
that this business would not prosper pending hostilities and he 
wound up his business in Ala. in 1862, and returned with his 
family to Jasper Co., Ga. Soon after moving to Ga., he entered 
as a volunteer private in the Confederate States Army and died 
in camp near Richmond, Va., July 12, 1862. 

In Feb., 1868, Mrs. Emily J. Brooks was united in marriage 
to William Henry Ivy, of Jasper Co., Ga., where they resided 
about three years and then moved to Newton Co., Ga., near Cov- 
ington. Later they resided in Covington and Mr. Ivy was en- 
gaged in the drug business in co-partnership with his step-son, 
Courtney C. Brooks. Mr. Ivy died in Covington, Ga., May 21, 
1894, aged 69 years and 7 months and the local paper said 
of him : 

"A better purer man never lived or died in this or any other community. 
He was born and raised in Newton county and was an industrious and 
useful citizen, being of a quiet and retiring nature. He was a patriotic 
man, having been a soldier in the Mexican War of 1847, and also a sol- 
dier in the late war between the States. He was an earnest and consistent 
member of the Methodist Church, who loved the Lord and endeavored to 
keep His commandments. He was a true and loyal Mason, who held out 
a helping hand to every brother in distress. * * * He leaves a rich 
and priceless legacy to his family in the undying form of a pure life and 
a clean record." 

Mrs. Ivy died May 13, 1899; mourned by loving children and 
friends. 

She was a model wife and mother, and a devout Christian 
and communicant of the Methodist Church.

JULIA PATTERSON^ CLARK (4) was born June 18, 
1833, in Jasper Co., Ga., and grew up to be a beautiful young 
woman. During a visit to her brother, Dr. C. J. Clark, at Jack- 
sonville, Ala., she met Dr. Miller William Francis and on May 
16, 1854, they were happily united in marriage. To them were 
born four children. All was pure and happiness in the home 
until the dread news that war had been declared between the 
States. The husband felt it his duty to give his services and life 
if need be in defense of his home and native land. With equal 
patriotism the wife agreed and then for long years of suspense 
with but rare intervals was the young mother separated from her 
loved husband. During this time the only daughter came to 
bless the home, but for a brief period. Her father saw her one 
time then while listening to hear at any time of the husband 
being wounded or dead, the mother's heart was rent with 
grief as she saw her precious one sicken and die, the father far 
away on the battle fields of Va. Through it all she trusted in 
God, and her letters of that period bear testimony to her sweet 
character and love for country. The world knows and recog- 
nizes the valor and fidelity of the Southern soldier and monu- 
ments are raised to them. God only knows the true devotion 
and silent suffering of those the purest, finest, noblest women 
of the world has ever seen, the wives of the South of 1861-5. 
The soldiers had relief in active service, their wives had patient 
suffering and waiting at home. The red rose of valor is theirs, 
the white lilly of purity and love belongs to the Southern women 
and their memory like a sweet perfume lingers with us who 
knew them and loved them. Through these chastenings the 
life of Mrs. Francis grew sadder and sweeter. During the next 



30 Genealogy of 

ten years another son came to bless the home, then the quiet 
spirit of the mother was called home. She died on the 6 of Nov. 
1874 and was buried at Jacksonville, Ala. She had for many 
years been a sweet spirited conscientious member of the Metho- 
dist Episcopal Church South, and died in the perfect assurance 
of a part in the resurrection of the just. ''Her children rise up 
and call her blessed." 

Dr. Miller W. Francis was born Dec. 21, 1833, at Jasper. 
Marion Co., Tenn. His ancestors went to Ireland during the re- 
ligious persecution in France, being strong Huguenots. Joseph 
Francis came from Ireland and settled in Va., and was a sol- 
dier in the war of the Revolution. His three children were edu- 
cated in France. Joseph's son Miller, married Hannah Henry, 
a member of the Patrick Henry family; they had twelve child- 
ren. One daughter, Theresa, married Judge Hopkins Turney, 
United States Senator from Tennessee before the Civil War. 
A son, Dr. James C. Francis, married Amy Ingram and in 1834 
moved to Jacksonville, Calhoun Co., (then Benton) and died 
there in 1878. Miller William Francis was a son of Dr. James 
C. Francis. He was educated in Ala., graduating with honors 
when seventeen years old. He read medicine in the office of 
his father and Dr. C. J. Clark, graduated in medicine and sur- 
gery at the Medical College in Louisville, Ky. in 1853, and com- 
menced the practice of his profession at twenty years of age. 
He continued in his chosen profession at Jacksonville until the 
Southern States seceded and leaving his young wife and two 
little children, he enlisted in the Confederate Army, and re- 
mained true to his colors as long as they floated, and true to his 
South land as long as he lived. He was commissioned senior 
surgeon of the 6th Ala., Infantry, Rodes Brigade, May 19, 1861, 
resigned this position in May, 1862, and was re-commissioned 
June 18, 1862, senior surgeon, Morgan's Brigade, Wheeler 
Corps Cavalry. He continued in this position till May 4, 1865, 
when he was paroled at Charlotte or Greensboro, N. C. He 
was with Gen. Joe Wheeler on many of his raids through Tenn. 
and Ky., was at the siege of Atlanta, always at the front ready 
to do his duty. Of him Gen., now U. S. Senator Morgan said 
to one of his sons, "Your father was the only surgeon I ever 



The Clark Family, 31 

saw dress a wounded man on the firing line. He would not stay 
in the rear." 

When the war ended Dr. Francis returned to Jacksonville and 
resumed the practice of medicine and built up a very extensive 
and successful practice. In 1874 his health began to fail. His 
beloved wife had died and life seemed to have but little attrac- 
tion for him, and on Dec. 8, 1877, he gladly yielded it up. Brave, 
chivalrous, tender-hearted gentleman that he was, he drew men 
to him. There was universal sorrow when the word went out 
that he was dead. He was a consistent member of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church South. Children:

HARVEY TUCKERS CLARK (4) was born in Jasper Co., 
Ga., May 2, 1838. He was educated in the common schools of 
the community in which his parents resided and finally at Jack- 
sonville, Calhoun Co., Ala., where he was stopping with his 
brother, Dr. C. J. Clark. 

He was employed at one time as a clerk in the dry goods store 
of Mr. Porter at Tuskegee, Ala., and afterwards at Pinelevel, 
Montgomery Co., Ala., in the store of the writer. 

On the first of Jan., 1859, he became a partner in the latter's 
store, when the firm was H. W. & H. T. Clark until July 5, 1861, 
when in an unfortunate encounter he was killed by one Alexan- 
der Urquahart. Urquahart was held to bail in the sum of ten 
thousand dollars. A bill of indictment was returned against 
Urquahart by the grand jury of Montgomery Co., charging him 
with murder, but he had enlisted in the Confederate States Army, 
and was thus enabled to postpone a trial for many years, in fact 
until after the close of the war and when tried was acquitted. 

Harvey T. Clark was a capable young business man, and gave 
promise of making a successful merchant. He was affable and 
courteous and had a happy faculty for making friends. He 
was married to Elvie S. Locke, of Montgomery Co., in i860. 

Mrs. Elvie (Locke) Clarke married W. J. Lewis, of Montgom-

ery Co., Ala. They settled in Bullock Co., where Mr. Lewis was 
successfully engaged in farming. They had two children, one 
died, the other is the wife of L. L. Lasiter, a prominent business 
man of Montgomery, Ala. 

Mr. Lewis died many years ago. Mrs. Lewis died at Mont- 
gomery, Ala., Jan. 7, 1901. Born to Harvey and El vie S. Clark

ELMIRA CAROLINE^ CLARK (4) was born in Jasper Co., 
Ga., Mar. 8, 1841. She was well educated in the local schools 
and grew up to be a young woman of more than ordinary attrac- 
tive personality. A relative of hers who met her when on a visit 
to friends in S. C, in some correspondence with the writer, says : 
"I thought Cousin Elmira was the most beautiful young woman 
my childish eyes had ever beheld, and she was as charming as she 
was beautiful." At some time during the Civil War while on a 
visit to friends at Jacksonville, Ala., she met Captain Gentry, of 
the Confederate Army, who afterwards visited her at the home 
of her parents in Jasper Co., Ga., and on July 3, 1865, they were 
happily united in marriage. The Rev. W. Pennington officiating. 

Captain Frank Gentry was born in Marion Co., Ky., Aug. 17, 
1824. He enlisted in the Confederate Army in 1861, was orderly 
sergeant in Company "B," 9th Kentucky Battalion, and was pro- 
moted to the rank of Captain before the close of the war. He 
settled at Carson's Landing on the Mississippi river where he was 
engaged at farming for many years and later on moved to Ox- 
ford, Mississippi, where he died Apr. 3, 1900, leaving his family 
well provided for. The local paper, the Globe, said on the occasion 
of his death : 

"Capt. Frank Gentry, one of the oldest and best known citizens of Ox- 
ford, died Tuesday morning at seven o'clock. * * Capt. Gentry moved 
here from the Mississippi Bottoms several years ago. He was an old Con- 
federate soldier, having performed many daring feats during the dark days 
of long ago. * * "

The Clark Family. 49 

1869. Mr. Hightower was born near Stockbridge, Ga. His 
parents moved to Atlanta, Ga., where his early boyhood was 
spent. His mother died when he was twelve years old, and thus 
in early youth he was bereft of a mother's tender care and love. 
He entered the Confederate Army in the last years of the war 
between the States. After the close of the war, like most all Con- 
federate soldiers, he was thrown entirely upon his own resources, 
with only a limited education. He proved equal to the occasion, 
and by close application to business, soon acquired a reasonable 
competency, but by an unfortunate business venture and unwise 
choice of a partner, was stripped of his accumulations and he was 
left to start anew with the care and responsibilities of a family to 
provide for. The same pluck and energy which stood him so well 
at first is again enabling him to succeed in business. 

Mrs. Hightower is a model housekeeper ; an affectionate wife ; 
a congenial companion and a devoted mother. She shares with 
her husband his successes and his misfortunes, his joys and his 
sorrows. She is a true and faithful helpmeet. Children:

of the two latter orders. His wife, an affectionate and congenial 
companion, a true and faithful helpmeet, was ever solicitous for

more than falls to the lot of men generally. She resides at 222

education in the common schools of his native village, attending 
for several years a school conducted by Prof. James Stark. 
In 1870 the family moved to Montgomery. Here he attended 
several schools, the principal one being that of Prof. G. W. 
Thomas, who in effect, prepared him for college. In Oct., 1874, 
he entered the Howard College, Marion, Ala., a Baptist institu- 
tion, and was graduated there in 1877. While in college he won 
the Sophomore medal for declamation and was a contributor to 
the college paper. In 1878 he was engaged to teach the classics 
in the high school of Montgomery. After a year's experience in 
teaching, he entered Harvard University as post graduate student. 
He here devoted the main part of his time to exploring the library 
in Gore Hall, and in the year he was there formed a superficial 
acquaintance with the literature of almost every nation. Return- 
ing to Ala., in 1879, he entered upon the study of the law, and in 
May, 1880, was admitted to the bar. In 1882, he attended the 
Summer course in law at the University of Virginia. His first 
partner in the practice of the law, was Mr. James Weatherly, now 
of Birmingham, Ala. He was later on associated for a short time 
with Mr. A. D. Sayre, now judge of the City Court of Montgom- 
ery, Ala. In 1885 he moved to Tex., and located in Cleburne, 
Johnson Co., going into business with Hon. Tillman Smith, one 
of the ablest lawyers at the Tex. bar. He was not pleased with 
Texas life, and, returning to Ala., he embarked in journalism as 
editor of the Selma Times, a daily newspaper at Selma, Ala., and 
the Montgomery Advertiser, of Montgomery, Ala., had this to 
say of him : 

"He is the most fully equipped young man that has entered daily journal- 
ism in this State for a long time." 

The Times was a paper of limited circulation for a daily, but 
the new editor managed to give it considerable importance by a 
bold and uncompromising advocacy of tariff reform, hard money 
and a thorough reform of the civil service. After leaving the 
Times he joined the staff of the Montgomery Advertiser, the lead- 
ing daily in the State, and that paper said of him : 

"The Advertiser is pleased to announce this morning that Mr. Thomas 
H. Clark is now on its editorial staff. He is a young man of splendid 
attainments and his short experience in journalism has shown his gifts and 
adaptation for the work of a live newspaper. In scholarship no young 
man in Alabama excells him, nor has he many equals in wide acquaintance 



56 Genealogy of 

with public men and affairs. He was reared in Montgomery and is well 
kriown throughout the State, more particularly from his recent connection 
with the Selma Times as editorial manager and writer. The Advertiser 
congratulates not only itself, but that wide public to whose pleasure and 
instruction his talents are from now to contribute." 

He did not remain long with the Advertiser, nor longer in jour- 
nalism. In Aug., 1887, he was tendered by Gov. Thomas Seay 
the position of recording secretary in his office, and, accepting, 
held this place during the remainder of Gov. Seay's two terms. 
His association with Gov. Seay, he is accustomed to speak of as 
among the most valuable experiences of his life. In 1891 he 
resumed the practice of the law, and was associated with Mr, W. 
H. Thomas, now judge of the criminal division of the City Court 
of Montgomery, under the firm name of Clark & Thomas. He 
has held a number of public positions. He was during four years' 
sessions of the Legislature, assistant secretary of the Senate. He 
represented his ward in the City Council of Montgomery, and 
resigned this post to enter upon the discharge of his duties as a 
member of the House of Representatives. He was elected to the 
next succeeding term of the Legislature, and at this term made 
speaker of the House. At the close of the session he was pre- 
sented by the House with a silver service. 

Mr. Clark was alternate-at-large to the Chicago Convention in 
1892, and subsequently secretary of the Democratic State Com- 
mittee. He has been a frequent contributor to the press on 
various subjects, more especially his home paper, The 
Advertiser, and the Evening Post and the Nation of N. Y. He 
has also delivered a large number of occasional addresses at 
Montgomery, Selma, Marion, Auburn, Ala., and Rome, Ga., and 
other points. In 1896 he was active in organizing the sound 
money movement in Ala., and became the candidate of the 
National Democratic party (Palmer and Buckner) for Congress 
in the 2d Ala. District. He was, of course, defeated. He has 
never been heard to express a syllable of regret at the course he 
then took. In Sept., 1897, he was appointed Supt. of the Law 
Library of Congress, commonly known as Supreme Court 
Library, and held this office for six years. In Dec, 1903, he 
resigned this post to re-enter the practice of the law in Washing- 
ton, where he now resides.

was born June 6, 1858. She is a descendant of a long line of 
prominent and wealthy ancestry. The founder of the family in 
America being the English emigrant Marks, who married Eliza-

women in any country, at any time, and was as good and kind as 
she was agreeable. 

Mr. Marks was a very small man, weighing only about one hun- 
dred and twenty pounds. He was shrewd and sharp-witted. He 
was very plain in dress and economical in expenditures. He was 
devotedly attached to his wife, and his desire to please her made 
him often do what no other motive could have done. Mrs. Marks 
loved comfort, and her husband's indisposition to spend money 
was overcome so far as to cause him to build her the finest house 
on Broad river. Mr. and Mrs. Marks were the first of the Broad 
river people to quit the forms of the Episcopal Church for the 
devotion of the Methodist. They were the special friends of 
Bishop Asbery, who made their house his home when he visited 
Georgia. The first organized Methodist congregation on Broad 
river was founded in their neighborhood and through their influ- 
ence.

HON. JOHN HENRY* MITCHELL (36) was born in Jas- 
per Co., Ga., Apr. 6, 1833 ; moved with his parents when yet a 
lad to Spaulding Co., then known as Henry Co. Here he passed 
the years of his early life, getting his education at the "Oldfield" 
schools where they instilled principles of sterling honesty and 
integrity. Being the eldest son he was very intimately associated 
with his father and in the large machinery establishment owned by 
him, the son learned principles of mechanics that were of great 
value to himself and others in the troublous days at the close 
of the Civil War. 

His knowledge of ginning, learned practically in his father's 
shops, enabled him to have the cotton successfully handled, even 
though so many of the gins throughout that portion of the State 
had been destroyed. Mr, Mitchell at the close of the war, like 
many other brave men, had to begin the battle of life with almost 
nothing. His wife, Rebecca Freeman, whom he had married in 
Coweta Co., Ga., Dec. 16, 1858, was a true and faithful helpmeet 
to him, and together they made their home upon one of the plan- 
tations of Ga., and by their united efforts he arose steadily to 
become one of the foremost planters of the State. He represented 
his county in the halls of legislation where he was ever known as 
a man of honor and unswerving rectitude. His beautiful home, 
known as "The Double Cabins," has ever been a place of refuge 
to the unfortunate and ever are its doors open to the stranger 
with a warm welcome. Miss Susan Blakely was an inmate of his 
home and the two sons of his sister, Mahala Gates, were received 
as members of his family upon the death of their mother. The 
little child whom Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell took for their own as an

infant has ever been their pleasure and pride. In very early girl- 
hood Nora Mitchell married Mr. J. H. Walker, and her three 
splendid young sons, Mitchell, Parker and J. H. are the joy and 
comfort of their grandparents. Mr. Mitchell has lived honored 
and respected by his fellow citizens. For sixteen years he acted 
as county commissioner and in all the various relations of his life 
he has been known as a man of incorruptible honesty.

JUDGE THOMAS JEFFERSON* BROWN (37) was born 
in Jasper Co., Ga., July 24, 1836, and went with his parents to 
Tex. in the winter of 1846-47. 

Quoting from Year Book for Tex., igoi; p. 34 (C. W. Raynes) : 

" * * * Judge Brown was admitted to the bar at Brenham in Aug., 
1857; graduated from the Law Department of Baylor University (then 
at Independence) in 1858; was admitted to the bar by the Supreme Court 
of Texas January 6, 1859, and immediately thereafter engaged in the prac- 
tice of his profession at McKinney, Collin County; entered the Confeder- 
ate Army as Second Lieutenant of Company E, Col. Robert Taylor's regi- 
ment of cavalry, and was later promoted to Captain, but, after capable and 
gallant service, was compelled to resign by ill-health before the close of the 



8o Genealogy of 

war; after the general surrender formed a partnership with Hon. J. W. 
Throckmorton, which continued until 1885 ; moved to Sherman, Grayson 
Co. in 1872, where he has since resided; represented Grayson County in 
the House of the Twenty-first and Twenty-second legislatures ; was ap- 
pointed district judge in Aug., 1892, and was elected to that position in 
Nov. following ; and in May, 1893, was appointed by Governor Hogg Chief 
Justice of the Court of Civil Appeals for the Fifth Supreme District, but 
before he qualified was appointed Associate Justice of the Supreme Court 
by Governor Hogg to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Associate 
Justice J. L. Henry. * * * He is a member of the Christian Church 
and Masonic fraternity. 

By his masterly advocacy of the Railroad Commission bill passed by the 
House of the Twenty-first Legislature, through his efforts, and defeated 
in the Senate, and by the breadth and soundness of his views and the 
courage and ability with which he sustained them, and by the signal quali- 
ties of leadership he displayed, he acquired a State reputation. 

While thus early distinguishing himself in the arena of politics and 
statesmanship, his true forte is that of a lawyer. Successful as a prac- 
titoner beyond the limits that usually satisfy ambition, both as regards 
reputation and securing the solid rewards that serve as a firm foundation 
for it to rest upon, nevertheless, his taste and powers of mind better fit him 
for a judge of a court of last resort and in that position he is doing the 
portion of his work in life that will be most lasting, most beneficial to 
Texas to-day and in the future and earn for him a place on the scroll that 
this generation will hand down to later times inscribed with the names 
of those who deserve to be honorably remembered by posterity."

McKinney, Collin Co., Tex., Aug. 7, 1859. Children:

Co. of his birth and worked his way through a school at that 
place, taught by W. W. Wheeler, youngest son of Justice Wheel- 
er of the first Supreme Court of the State for eighteen months 
and studied medicine at the same time. When Mr. Brown had 
prepared himself to attend medical lectures, he concluded he 
preferred to practice law, and went to McKinney, CoUin Co., 
North Tex. and there studied law under Throckmorton and 
Brown, a firm composed of Gov. J. W. Throckmorton and T. J. 
Brown his brother. Dec. lo, 1868, he married Icy P. Burns, of 
Kosse, Limestone Co., Tex., and in Mar., 1869, was admitted to 
practive law at McKinney by the district court and soon there- 
after was admitted to practice in the Supreme and Federal 
Courts of Texas. Mr. Brown practiced his profession alone for 
a few years ; and in 1872 formed a partnership, Throckmorton, 
Brown & Bro., composed of his preceptors and himself. The 
firm was continued until about 1880 when T. J. Brown having 
removed from McKinney, withdrew from the firm and he and 
his old partner J. W. Throckmorton continued to practice under 
the firm name of Throckmorton and Brown, in Collin and ad- 
joining counties until his partner's health failed so as to force 
him out of the practice in 1885. In Aug. 1886 Mr. Brown 
moved to Sherman, Grayson Co., Tex., and has continued the 
practice of his profession there. 

The religion of the family is Baptist. Mr. Brown writing, 
says of his wife, "Mrs. Brown has ever been faithful as wife, 
mother and counsellor in her family ; and it is due to her good 
sense, judgment, piety and never failing energy and indomitable 
will that success has crowned our efiforts to raise and educate 
our children, make good citizens of them and lead them to Christ 
their Savior. In politics the Browns are Democratic and are 
prohibitionists to the core."

The Parks Family 



THE PARKS FAMILY. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



1. 



SAMUEL PARKS is the earliest of the present family of Parks 
of which any information is at hand. The ancestors of the fam- 
ily were Scotch. They emigrated first from Scotland to Ireland 
and thence to America prior to 1750, landed at Charleston, S. C, 
and settled in Va. 

Samuel Parks resided in Amelia Co., Va., and died there, leav- 
ing a widow, Mary Parks, and eight sons and daughters. The 
family moved to S. C, and the widow died there. 

It is said in Scotland the Parks were agriculturalists, owners and 
tillers of the soil. For many years after coming to America, and 
even to the present day, for the most part, their descendants have 
continued in agricultural pursuits. 

They were pioneer settlers in upper S. C, in what is known 
as the Piedmont section, noted for its salubrious clime and fer- 
tile lands. Here they built their log houses, and, uniting with 
one another, erected their neighborhood school houses and church 
buildings, to provide for the education of their children and for 
religious worship and training. 

They were industrious and frugal, established good homes and 
were prosperous. They trained their sons and daughters to 
habits of industry, frugality and morality, illustrated and ex- 
emplified in the honorable and useful lives of their numerous 
descendants. 

The children of this worthy pioneer and his wife were : 

2. i. Thomas^ b. about 1750, and was thrice m. 

ii. James, b. about 1752; m. and settled in N. C, and reared 
a large family ; had a son, Thomas, who m. Miss Lane 
and resided in Kershaw district, S. C. 
iii. John, b. about 1754; m. and moved to Ga. 
iv. William, b. about 1756; m. and moved West.

vii. Priscilla, b. about 1762; m. Harwell. 

viii. Amelia, b. about 1764; m. Jennings.

We have no further information relating to these except of 
Thomas, first born, and of his decendants. 



SECOND GENERATION. 

2. 

THOMAS^ PARKS (i) was born in Amelia Co., Va., about 
1750 and was thrice married. His first wife was a Miss White, 
who bore him one child, a son, WiUiam, and died. The descend- 
ants of William Parks are very numerous and are a highly 
respected and useful people. Thomas Parks' second wife was a 
Miss Hornbuckle, who died about six months from date of their 
marriage. His third and last wife was Annie, daughter of John 
and Amelia Brockman, a prominent and highly respected North 
Carolina family. He settled in Laurens district, S. C, near the 
Enoree river, some four miles west of the present town of Wood- 
ruff, in Spartanburg Co., S. C, where at the time of his death, 
Dec. 27, 183 1, he owned a good plantation, nineteen negroe slaves 
and other valuable property. His son. Col. James Parks, ad- 
ministered on the estate and the records of the court at Laurens 
show most excellent management of the same, one remarkable 
feature being the appraised valuation and sales account were 
very nearly the same amount. The family "grandfather" clock 
sold for fifty dollars. Thomas and Annie Parks reared a large 
and interesting family. He died honored and respected by his 
neighbors. Mrs. Parks died, date not known, loved and es- 
teemed. She was a consistent member of the Baptist Church; 
an excellent housekeeper, industrious and frugal; a congenial 
companion, a true helpmate. The sons and daughters were 
trained to habits of industry and frugality and were educated in 
the neighborhood schools and attended worship at the neighbor-

in 1780. He died Sept. 14, 1856, and his wife, Amelia, died Jan. 
14, 1863. He was a son of Abraham Hudson, who was born in 
1729 and died June 6, 1806. The Hudsons emigrated from Eng- 
land to America and settled in Va. When a child Abraham's 
nurse accidentally let him fall in a fire and one of his hands 
was severely burned and injured. His father, through sympa- 
thy for this affliction, willed him two plantations on the James 
river. Abraham married Elizabeth Tyler, of Maryland, a woman 
of culture and refinement ; said to be a cousin of the Russels of 
Maryland, and also a cousin of ex-President Tyler. The family

8 Genealogy of 

Dr. J. B. O. Landrum's History of Spartanburg Co., S. C, 
(1900) says: 

"The ancestor of the Drummond famiHes in Spartanburg- 
county was Ephraim Drummond, who married Polly Johnson. 
Both removed from Virginia to South Carolina in 1789, he from 
Lunenburg and she from another burg only a few miles away, 
and settled in the vicinity of the present town of Woodruff, S. C. 
Both he and his wife were of Scotch-Irish descent. The wife was 
a relative of General Joseph E. Johnson, who was also a native of 
Virginia. Ephraim Drummond, coming from a family that was 
full of pluck and energy, made his start in business by raising to- 
bacco and rolling it to Charleston in hogsheads. He was success- 
ful in raising corn, and his place was often called Egypt. He 
served for a time in the Revolutionary war when only sixteen 
years of age." 

Jared Drummond died Oct, 8, 1874. He and his wife reared 
a large and interesting family. They were the parents of fifteen 
children, thirteen of whom, two sons and eleven daughters, lived 
to be grown.

ciation missionary over a large territory. The county at that time 
was sparsely settled, consequently he was much from home ; his 
wife, a noble Christian woman, having the entire charge of the 
interests of the farm and family. Owing to conditions incident

FIFTH GENERATION.

ELIZABETH^ MEADOR (10) was born Feb. 6, 1820, in 
Laurens district, S, C, and married James R. George, at Lithonia, 
DeKalb Co., Ga., in Oct. 1844. She was a consistent member of 
the Baptist Church. She died at Lithonia in 1878. We find in 
the History of the Baptist Denomination of Ga. (Christian 
index), the following sketch of the ministerial life of Rev. Jas. R. 
George : 



28 Genealogy of 

"This useful minister of the gospel must be numbered with 
those of whose life we have been vmable to procure an adequate 
sketch. But his 'memory smells sweet and blossoms in the dust' 
and we do the little we can to perpetuate it. A native of Georgia, 
Rev. James R. George was born July 31, 1792, and settled in early 
life as an agriculturist, we presume, in DeKalb Co. It was not 
until his thirty-fifth year, midway between the cradle and the 
grave, that he engaged in the service of the Lord. At that date 
(in 1827) he united with the Macedonia Church and devoted him- 
self with Commendable zeal to everything promotive of its pros- 
perity. Moving for fifteen years in a private sphere, he won the 
highest esteem of the brotherhood for sound judgment and con- 
sistent Christian deportment. His church called him to ordina- 
tion in 1842, when his age had grown to half a century. The 
presbytery consisted of Revs. Luke Robinson, Henry Collins and 
James Nix. This late entrance on the ministry was followed by 
twenty years of faithful labor. He rendered pastoral services to 
Churches in DeKalb, Gwinnett and Newton counties, the Lord 
crowning the work of his hands with the conversion of sinners 
and the edification of saints. He took part in the constitution of 
Rock (now Stone) Mountain Association. In 1846, feeling the 
importance of forming a Baptist Church in Lithonia, he entered, 
with a few others, into its organization. From a small member- 
ship that body has grown in numerical strength and efficiency 
until it ranks with the stronger churches of the association. Not 
here alone, but throughout his field of operation, evidences of 
usefulness marking his ministrations still remain, and his name 
is held in grateful remembrance by those who were old enough 
to have enjoyed them. His death occurred April 6, 1862, when his 
life had nearly reached the appointed bound of three score years 
and ten. He died as he had long lived, in hope of a blessed im- 
mortality, with these words on his lips. 'I resign myself to the 
will of God,' he passed from earth to the rest which remaineth."

JOHN J.^ MEADOR (10) was born Jan. 4, 1825, in Laurens 
district, S. C, removed to DeKalb Co., Ga., with his parents when 
a child and was reared and educated in that county, near Lithonia. 
He was engaged in the mercantile business at Carrollton, Ga., in 
1851. He married Louisa Caroline, daughter of Rev. Asa Sim- 
mons, at Lafayette, Chambers Co., Ala., Sept. 25, 185 1. Miss 
Simmons was born Aug. 23, 1832, in DeKalb Co., Ga. Soon 
after their marriage Mr. Meador sold his mercantile interests at 
Carrolton and went to Lafayette, Chambers Co., Ala., where he 
was engaged in merchandising for three years and then sold out 
and moved to Claiborne Parish, La., where he engaged in farm- 
ing, which occupation he followed successfully until the close of 
the Civil War, 186 1-5, when he again entered the mercantile busi- 
ness. He was in the army of the Confederate States but was dis- 
charged from the active duties of the service because of physical 
disability. He was later on commissioned to collect supplies for 
the army. He never sought or held any office except that of 
notary public. Was not a member of any church organization, 
but in sympathy and belief was a missionary Baptist. He was a 
self-made man, with an unbroken record for honorable dealing 
with his fellowman. He was always a Democrat in politics, was 
an affectionate husband, a kind and indulgent father and a highly 
respected citizen. He died Sept. 28, 1865. 

Mrs. Meador, left with the responsibility of caring for, rearing 
and educating of a family of six children, demonstrated her worth 
as a woman and mother as evidenced in the person of useful and 
respected sons and daughters. She resides at Antioch, Claiborne

EMMA JOSEPHINE^ DRUMMOND (11) was born May 
25, 1837, in Spartanburg district, S. C, was educated in the com- 
mon schools and married Edwin Henry Bobo, Dec. 4, 1856. 

Mr. Bobo was born in Spartanburg district, S. C, Feb. 29, 
1836. His early education and preparation for college was ob- 
tained in the village schools. He was graduated at Emery Col- 
lege, Macon, Ga., in 1855. He taught school at Woodruff, S. C, 
in 1856, where he met Miss Drummond and they were married. 
He subsequently read law in his father's office in Spartanburg 
and was admitted to the bar in i860. He was a young man of 
much promise for a useful life and impressed everyone with the 
purity of his character and personal worth. He had scarcely 
made his maiden speech at the bar when his country called him 
to the scenes of war and he obeyed. In the latter part of 1861 he 
assisted in raising Company "E" and entered the service as lieu- 
tenant under Capt. Woodruff in Holcomb's Legion. He soon be- 
came acting adjutant of the regiment and was in twelve engage- 
ments besides numerous skirmishes incidental to the service. He 
was a gallant and brave soldier, a true patriot, a sincere friend 
and Christian gentleman. He was captured with his regiment at 
Five Forks two weeks before the surrender at Appomattox and 
sent to Johnson Island, where he remained until June. After the 
war Col. Bobo resumed the practice of his profession and became 
very prominent as a lawyer. He was a bold and forceful speaker, 
a consistant partisan in political matters and purely Democratic 
in all his views. He worked vigorously in 1876 for the redemp- 
tion of the State from carpet-bag rule, and ever afterwards did 
all in his power for the party. He was thrown from his buggy 
on May 15, 1886, his head striking a stump, resulting in fatal 
injuries from which he never recovered consciousness and died 
May 19. He had served in both branches of the State Legisla- 
ture since 1882, and at the time of his unfortunate death was 
Senator from Spartanburg county. He was stricken down in the 
full tide of his usefulness and manhood, leaving to his children 
the priceless heritage of a good name. Children :

CORNELIA MEDORA^ DRUMMOND (11) was born Mar. 
II, 1839, in Spartanburg district, S. C, was educated in the com- 
mon schools and married George Washington Lester, May 28, 
1863. Mr. Lester was born at Buenarista Cotton Mills, Green- 
ville district, S. C, July 30, 1833. He received only a limited 
education in early life. His three brothers had a collegiate edu- 
cation, but their halth was impaired by hard study and close con- 
finement ; all were graduated however. George's father concluded 
to raise him to work and attend to business, deeming an indus- 
trial education of more real advantage than literary. Mr. Lester 
joined the Methodist Church when quite young; was a class 
leader for several years. He then was superintendent of the Sab- 
bath school for eight successive years. Cornelia, his wife, joined 
his church after their marriage. 

In 1861 G. W. Lester volunteered and went into the Confed- 
erate Army and was first lieutenant of Company "F," Hampton's 
Legion, and was in the first battle of Manassas. When an order 
was given to "charge the enemy up the hill to the Henry House," 
the Confederates were reluctant to start ; their flag was down. 
Lieutenant Lester took it up and advancing some twenty paces 
called: "South Carolina, follow your colors," and immediately 
there was a yell heard along the lines and the order was instantly 
obeyed. Lieutenant Lester kept ahead, carrying the colors in the 
thickest of the fray. One or two pieces passed by and pressed 
the enemy, who was at this time retreating in very bad order; a 
rout. Lester saw a loose horse about midway between the two 
contending forces, ran in and captured and brought it out while 
shot were flying about him from both sides. Soon after this 
Lester's father, who superintended Lester & Sons cotton mills, 
died, and he was detailed to take charge of the mills. He ran the 
factory successfully day and night, and sold about one-third of 



The Parks Family. 35 

the products to the Confederate government at one-third its mar- 
ket value, and after Johnson's surrender, Lester & Brothers, who 
were now the owners of the cotton mills, accepted pay for their 
products in Confederate money, several hundred thousand dol- 
lars. This, of course, was worthless. Having taken cotton in 
exchange for products of the mill in part, they held at the close 
of the war some three hundred or more bales, which if they had 
sold at prices then prevailing, would have made them indepen- 
dent; but this would have necessitated dismissing their poor 
operatives, many of whom were the wives and children of Con- 
federate soldiers, and caused them to suffer for want of employ- 
ment. They decided to manufacture the cotton and also about 
this time made an unfortunate venture in a mercantile business 
at Greenville, S. C. In about two years the disastrous results of 
the mercantile venture and decline in value of the products of 
the cotton mill, held in New York by their factors, bankrupted 
Lester Brothers. George W. Lester, now having arranged to 
control the mill, undertook to operate it on his own account, but 
the money panic and consequent stringency in money matters of 
1872, made it necessary for him to close the mill, finding himself 
stripped of all earthly goods. Like the honest man he is, he sur- 
rendered everything to his creditors. Thus the patriotic, humane, 
public-spirited and prosperous manufacturer was reduced from 
afifluence to penury. Although past the meridian of life he and 
his devoted wife began the battle of life anew. They settled at 
Williamston, S. C, where they reared and educated their children, 
four daughters and one son, who are meeting the responsibilities 
of life bravely, honored and honering their parents in their up- 
right and useful lives. 

In his declining years Mr. Lester finds it necessary to devote 
himself to business. Bravely and cheerfully are he and his good 
wife resigned to this. Mrs. Lester has been to her husband, the 
mainspring of his life. Trained in early life to habits of industry 
and economy, skilled in domestic handcraft, true and faithful, 
she has always been ready to do her part, but never was the worth 
of a good wife, a true helpmeet, more fully realized than now. 

Mr. Lester at one time took employment as a collector and his 
experiences as such led him to compose the following plaintive 
poem: 



36 Genealogy of 

COLLECTOR'S PLAINT. 

1. With cheerful heart, but weary feet 
I plod along the hard paved street, 
Turning here, and turning there, 
Going in almost everywhere 

Just to make a dollar or two 
To pay my rent when it was due. 

2. From ward to ward, and hill to hill, 
I travel along with every bill — 
Just to hear the same old song 
Which I've heard, too, very long; 
Not a cent to-day I have for you 
To pay your rent when it is due. 

3. Still on I go, from door to door. 
To hear the song I heard before. 
Next time you come I surely will 
Be prepared to pay my bill. 
This is making a dollar or two 
To pay my rent when it falls due. 

4. Then out of town and up the hill 
To find a man who owes a bill, 
Shunning his dog that comes at me 
By climbing high a friendly tree. 
All this to make a dollar or two 
To pay your rent when it is due. 

5. As thus I go, day after day, 
Until my hair is turning gray, 
Making friends, most everywhere. 

Some these are homely, and some are fair, 
And some pay me a dollar or two 
To meet my rent when it is due. 

6. I am now old, it won't be long 

I hope to hear that Heavenly song: 
On earth your toils are at an end. 
Now don your bills and you ascend 
Up through the etherial blue 
To where the rents are never due.

29, 1874. Miss Eatmon was born in Pickens Co., Ala., June 24, 
1854; was educated at the State Female College of Memphis, 
Tenn. She joined the M. E. Church South in days of early girl- 
hood, and from that time to the memorable 13th day of Apr., 
1889, when she joined the Church Triumphant, she lived in strict 
consistency with the obligations assumed. For eleven years she 
was a great sufferer, and during this time while patiently bearing 
her affliction, she was a fine subject to illustrate the Master's cau- 
tion, "Let not thy left hand know what they right hand doeth," 
and it is no exaggeration to say she easily took her place among 
the best Christian women. 

Mr. Switzer's life work is farming. He is a faithful and zeal- 
ous member of the M. E. Church South. Having faithfully per- 
formed the duties of the office of class leader and steward for a 
number of years. Has served the State of his adoption (Ark.) 
in the capacity of magistrate and the Confederacy as a soldier, 
joining Capt. Mellmont Hunter's company, from Laurens Co., 
S. C, in 1862, which was Co. "E" of James' Battalion, No. 3, 
Haygood's brigade, Longstreet's corps of Lee's army. He was 
captured Feb. 14, 1865, at Fort Fisher, N. C, and held a prisoner 
at Point Lookout, Md., until July i, 1865. Reached his home in 
S. C. July 5, 1865, thus enjoying the hospitality ( ?) of his cap- 
tors after the war was over. While a prisoner he perceived that 
some of his fellow prisoners (without any effort on their part) 
had a better time than others and did not have quite so much un- 
cooked salt mackerel to eat. Learning they were Masons, he de- 
termined to become one. Therefore after (in 1876) going to 
Ark. he was made a Mason at Meridian, Ashley Co., Ark., Lodge 
No. 214, in 1872. Joined the brotherhood of K. of P. at Ham- 
burg, Ark., in 1891, Lodge No. 31. He resides at Wilmot, Ark.

The Brockman and Dean Families 



THE BROCKMAN AND DEAN 

FAMILIES.* 



So far as can be ascertained from a careful examination of 
works relating to English and other families, the name Brockman, 
in early times, is found nowhere except in the County of Kent, 
England. At this time one of the principal families in that county 
bears the name. Quite an extensive account of it is given in 
Burke's Landed Gentry. 

No definite connection is known to exist between the English 
and American families. The similarity in family names and the 
recurrence of the names Henry, Thomas and John in each gene- 
ration of both families, however, leads to the conclusion that they 
are the same. 

The name was originally Brookman, but the second o became 
substituted into c and it is now written Brockman. 

When the family came to America or who the first ancestor 
was is not known to the writer. They resided in Va., probably in 
Orange or Albemarle county. In the latter county persons 
of the name lived so late as 1835. On the pension roll of that year 
is found the name of Joseph Brockman, a private in the Va. line. 
He is there put down as 91 years of age.

JOHN BROCKMAN, the founder of the family of that name, 
of whom this genealogy treats, married Amiclia Martin.t Their 

*The compiler is indebted to Hon. Thomas M. Otven, Director of the 
Department of Archives and History, for Alabama, for much of the 
information in this genealogy relating to the Brockman family, and for 
courteous and generous aid in the preparation of the entire work. 

t It is thought by some of the descendants, that Mrs. Brockman's maiden 
name was Edwards. 

The compiler's mother, Mrs. Susan Clark, a granddaughter who was a 
woman of intelligence, of great strength of memory and wide acquaintance

daughter Mary, who married Joel Dean, supposed to have been 
their first child, was born Jan. 7, 1759. This would probably 
place Mr, Brockman's birth at 1735-40. The family resided first 
in Va., then in N. C, and later on in S. C, probably in Greenville 
district where many of their descendants still live. In the Bible 
of his grandson, Col. Thomas Brockman, is recorded the death of 
John Brockman, Sr., Aug. 13, 1825. He was probably 85-90 years 
old. Children : 

2. i. Mary", b. Jan. 7, 1759; m. Joel Dean,

SECOND GENERATION. 

2. 

MARY- BROCKMAN (i) was born Jan. 7, 1759, and was 
united in marriage to Joel Dean Sept. 5, 1775. 

Joel Dean was born Feb. 16, 1755. He was a son of Charles 
and Ursula Majoribanks (Marchbanks) Dean of Va. We know 
nothing of the personal history of Charles and Ursula Dean, but 
*»* that they were highly respected and useful people is demonstrated 
and exemplified in the honorable and useful lives of their numer- 
ous descendants. 

Dr. J. B. O. Landrum's History of Spartanburg Co., S. C. 
(1900), p. 334, says: 

"In the list containing the names of the heads of families in 
Spartanburg County as shown by the original census returns of 
first census taken in 1790 * * * we find but one name of 
the Dean family, being that of Joel Dean, Sr., from whom all the 
families of this name in said county have descended." 

"Joel Dean was born Feb. 16, 1755, emigrated from Virginia 

with her kindred, said her grandmother, Amelia Brockman's maiden name 
was Martin. Mrs. Clark's association with her mother, the daughter of 
John and Amelia Brockman for many years, together with other reliable 
sources of information should dispel all doubt of the correctness of her 
statement. 
Mrs. Brockman may have been a descendant of the Edwards family.

to North CaroHna, and from there to South CaroHna, settHng 
on Enoree River in the territory afterwards embraced in Spartan- 
burg County. He was a progressive farmer for his day and time 
and a highly respected citizen. He died February 5, 1842, being 
87 years of age. His wife, Mary Brockman, who was born Janu- 
ary 7, 1759, died Oct. 28, 1825, in the 67th year of her age." Their 
children were: 

6. i. JoHN^ b. Sept. 26, 1776; m. Mary Farrow. 

7. ii. Amelia, b. Dec. 18, 1778; m. James Miller.

MAJORS BROCKMAN ( i ) married Mary Patterson, sister of 
Susannah Patterson, the wife of his brother, Henry Brockman. 
Of the descendants of this family we have no information except 
of one son: 

16. James', b. May 17, 1782; twice m. 

4. 

HENRY2 BROCKMAN (i) was born in Va., Dec. 18, 1764, 
and married his cousin, Susannah Patterson. They moved from 
Va., to S. C, about 1790-95, and settled in Spartanburg or Green- 
ville district. Mr. Brockman was a planter and owned slaves. 
He died in Greenville district, S. C, Apr. 11, 1835. His will 
dated July 19, 1834, is on record in the Probate Judge's office at 
Greenville, S. C, Book B of wills, p. 135-136. The will shows 
him to have been a man of substance. 

Mrs. Susannah (Patterson) Brockman was born in Va. in 
1765 and died in Greenville district, S. C, June 11, 1842. The 
mortal remains of Mr. and Mrs. Brockman rest in the family 
graveyard at the Brockman homestead, about midway between 
Spartanburg and Greenville, and not far from Reidville.

man. 

She was born in Virginia, 1765, and departed this life in Greenville 
district nth June, 1842. She joined the Baptist Church in early life and 
was truly pious, always ready to instruct and administer to the wants of 
others. She was much afflicted through life, but never complained. Her 
last words were : "I am ready to depart and be with my Saviour." 

"Blessed are the dead 
That die in the Lord; 
Yea, saith the Spirit, 
They rest from their labor 
And their works do follow them."

6. 

JOHN^ DEAN (2) was born in Guilford Co., North Caro 
lina, Sept. 26, 1776, and married Mary, eldest daughter of Capt. 
Thomas Farrow and his wife Rebecca (Woods) Farrow, Dec. 26, 



The Brockman and Dean Families. 5 

1797. Miss Farrow was born in Spartanburg, S. C, Apr. 30, 
1780 and died Aug. 30, 1830. She is said to have been a lady of 
remarkable beauty of person and noble qualities of mind and 
heart. They were both baptised by R. Shackleford, Jan. 9, 1803. 
Capt. Thomas Farrow, the father of Airs. Dean was a Revolu- 
tionary soldier. 

John Dean, after the death of his wife Rebecca, married 
Nancy Nichols, a widow. Nancy Nichols was the mother of 
Maj. Geo. Nichols, who married Kate Crook, and the grand- 
mother of the Nichols of Spartanburg, John, George and Frank. 
Mr. Dean died Jan. 27, 1852, and the following obituary ap- 
peared in a local paper: "Departed this life at his residence, 
near the Mountain Shoals, Spartanburg District, South Carolina, 
on Saturday, 27th January, 1852, John Dean, Esq., in the sev- 
enty-sixth year of his age ; being born in Guilford County, North 
Carolina, a few months after the Declaration of Independence, 
viz: 26th September, 1776. Born at a period when every fac- 
ulty of the mind was called into action, he early acquired habits 
of decision and self-reliance beyond his years. While his father, 
under General Rutherford, was striking for liberty, or engaged 
in repelling the attacks of hostile Indians he was left at home, the 
only protector of a numerous family, of which he was the eldest. 
While still very Young, his parents emigrated to this district, 
where they lived and died, and where early in life he was united 
in marriage to Mary Farrow, eldest daughter of the Revolution- 
ary Patriot, Capt. Thomas Farrow. Nearly fifty years have 
elapsed since they were both "buried with Christ in Baptism," 
and more than twenty years since the beloved partner of his youth 
preceded him to a better state of existence, but the religion 
which he then professed failed not to be his support in the trials 
of a long life, and be rod and staff through the dark Valley of 
the Chamber of death. An upright man, "just in his dealings," 
he brought no reproach upon the name of Christ by an unhal- 
lowed grasping after wealth, and though he has left no overgrown 
fortune to his many children and their descendants he has left 
a nobler inheritance, a name without fear and without reproach. 
Of his eleven sons and daughters who reached maturity nine 
survive him, and those who are absent, as well as to his brothers 
and sisters in distant States, it will be a consolation to know that 



6 Genealogy of 

he retained his faculties unimpaired, and that almost the last act 
of expiring consciousness was to breathe a prayer so full of 
imagery, exalted faith and divine resignation as to appear to those 
who heard it almost the language of inspiration. No struggle 
marked the close of a life that had been passed with Christian 
dignity and consistency, but calmly as an infant slumbers, he 
fell asleep in Jesus. The funeral discourse was preached by the 
Rev. J. G. Landrum from the 92 Pslam: "The righteous shall 
flourish like the palm tree," and on the 19th his mortal remains 
were laid by her who had gone before. Though the day was 
intensely cold, the number who attended his last resting place 
will best attest the estimation in which he was held by those 
among whom he lived and died and those who mourn such a 
father while they must bow in submission to the eternal decree, it 
remains to them to cherish, imitate, and to follow his example."

THOMAS^ DEAN (2) was born Oct. 31, 1791, and married

He was among the earlier settlers and entered a large tract of 
school land where he made his home the remainder of his long 
and useful life. One child : 

45. Peyton Smith*, b. Nov. 25, 1830; m. Nancy Gulley. 

12. 

HENRY^ DEAN (2) was born in the State of S. C, Feb. 11, 
1794, and received only a common school education. He enlisted 
in the Army of the United States and served under Gen. Manning 
in the War of 1812 between the U. S. and Great Briton, and was 
honorably discharged at the close of the war. He and his cousin 
Frances, a daughter of Thomas Parks, of Laurens district, S. C, 
were united in marriage at the residence of her parents Sept. 26, 
1815. Frances Parks was born in Laurens district, S. C, Dec. 
2y, 1799, and was educated in the common schools. (See No. 2, 
Part n, Parks family.) 

Mr. Dean, after his marriage, settled in Spartanburg district, 
S. C, until 1830, when he, with his family, moved to Tenn., and 
settled in Bedford Co. of that State. After he moved to Tenn. 
he was elected to the office of magistrate, and served the people 
as such for eighteen years. When parties at variance came before 
him to try their cases, he would take them aside, to themselves, 
and try to induce them to settle their troubles. He seldom failed. 
This course reduced the size of his legal docket and lessened 
his fees, but it helped his neighbors, gained for him influence, and 
left him a good name, more to be desired than riches or earthly 
honors. He was a good law abiding and useful citizen ; a con- 
sistent member and elder of the Christian Church ; esteemed 
for his probity, his upright dealing with his fellovvmen and for 
his conscientious discharge of official duty. The fragrance of his 



The Brockman and Dean Families. 9 

life lingers in the community in which he lived, though he passed 
away a third of a century ago. He was noted for his good sense, 
kindly spirit, familiarity with the Scriptures and as a peace- 
maker. 

Mrs. Dean was a model housekeeper, industrious and frugal, 
a worthy and fitting helpmeet to her husband, and was a con- 
sistent church member, loved and esteemed by her neighbors.

MAJ. HOSEA JEFFERSON* DEAN (6) was born July 11, 
1806, and was twice married. His first wife was Elizabeth El- 
len Mills. They were married in 1834. Mrs. Dean died in 
1838. 

Maj. Dean's second wife was Mary Owen, of Washington, D. 
C. She was born in London, England, in 1822 and died in Spar- 
tanburg, S. C, in 1886. Maj. Dean died in 1855. 

Dr. J. B. O. Eandrum's History of Spartanburg County, S. C, 
( 1900) p. 340-41 says of Hon. Hosea J. Dean. ''* * * * * 
The careful training of pious parents and the influence of a fam- 
ily of devoted sisters did much in the formation of his character, 
and made him while yet a boy, remarkable for a certain dignified 
manliness of deportment which belongs to him throughout his 
entire life. These were continued with the most decided and 
assiduous care for his mother and sisters, which he always mani- 
fested. Among the most prominent traits in his character were 
self-reliance, fortitude and truth. At the age of about twenty- 
one years he entered the law office of Colonel Patillo Farrow, at 
Laurens Court House, S. C. In 1828 Maj. Dean was admitted 
to the practice and at once entered into co-partnership with Colo- 
nel Farrow, his preceptor at Laurens. In 1829 he returned to his 
native district and settled at Spartanburg. He was subsequently 
elected by the State Legislature Commissioner of Equity for 
Spartanburg District. He entered upon the duties of the office 
and was a model officer, equal to any in the State. In 1844 he 
resigned and resumed the practice of his profession, in which he

continued with eminent abiUty until near the time of his death, 
which occurred August 3, 1855. 

Maj. Dean was elected to the State Legislature in 1850 and 
again in 1852, and showed himself to be an able and discrete poli- 
tician and was a popular and useful member. About 1830, Maj. 
Dean embraced religion and in 1832 united with the Baptist 
Church. He assisted in the organization of the First Baptist 
Church of Spartanburg, the success of which was largely due to 
his wise council and support. In 1834 Maj. Dean married Eliz- 
abeth Ellen, second daughter of Colonel John Mills, of Ruther- 
ford, N. C, a lady universally beloved and respected, who died 
in 1838, leaving one son, John Mills Dean. 

On the ninth of August, 1840, he again married Mary, only 
daughter of Edward Owen, of Washington, D. C, a lady of tal- 
ents and education."

in Spartanburg district, S. C, and after receiving a literary and 
classical education read Medicine with Dr. R. M. Young, at 
Spartanburg. He graduated in Medicine at Lexington, Ky., and 
practiced his chosen profession for a quarter of a century, a 
faithful public servant and good physician, dropping words of 
encouragement and sympathy to his patients, as well as adminis- 
tering to their body ailments. He served the district in the 
Legislature from 1842 to 1850. His character as a legislator, for 
truth, integrity and devotion to principle was irreproachable. A 
Presbyterian by faith and profession, but liberal and Catholic 
enough to recognize all Christians as brethren. 

His character was symmetrical, as near the great model of per- 
fection as is usually seen in this world. In several respects his 
example was striking. First in punctuality, second in his tender 
regard for the feelings of others, both in his social intercourse 
with the members of the Church and in the discharge of his duties 
as a Church officer. Third in the prompt discharge of his pe- 
cuniary obligations to the Church, fourth, in the moral support 
which he rendered his pastor. He died May 9, 1879. Mr. Miller 
was twice married ; first to Adaline Moore. Miss Moore was edu- 
cated at Barhamville, S. C.

Dr. J. B. O. Landrum, in his history of Spartanburg Co., 
(1900), says of him: 

"At the age of twenty-one he graduated at the South Carolina 
Military Academy. Choosing civil engineering as his profession, 
he spent the winter of 1855-56 as a member of the engineering 
corps on the New York and Erie Railroad, perfecting himself in 
practical work. Inheriting a number of slaves, he adopted a 
planter's life and settled in Van Buren Co., Ark. At the first call 
for volunteers by the Governor of Arkansas he raised a company 
and went to Little Rock, where in organizing he was commis- 
sioned Lieutenant Colonel of the 7th (Ark.) Regiment Infantry. 
The regiment at once went into active service in the Trans- 
Mississippi Department. * * * " 



The Brockman and Dean Families. 37 

Landrum, continuing, says of the battle of Shiloh : 
"From six in the morning until late in the afternoon Colonel 
Dean's command was in the thickest of the fight. Leading an 
assault across the "sunken road," he fell about 5 p. m., shot in 
the neck by a sharpshooter, he died instantly. One of his com- 
rades wrote: 'The men faltered a little as they reached the road. 
So the colonel ran in front, cheering them on, waving his sword, 
and as he gave the command. Fire ! fell with his face to the 
foe.' General Hardie, in speaking to the mother of Colonel Dean, 
said: 'Madam, your son was a brave man. I sometimes thought 
in action he was almost foolhardy, but he was a brave soldier and 
knew no fear, only inspiration under fire. His promotion had 
been approved at headquarters and the papers reached me after 
his death.' " 

Colonel Dean died unmarried in his twenty-seventh year. A 
true Spartan hero. "A better soldier," said General Hardie, 
"never lived, a braver man never died."

EDWARD JEFFERSON DEAN {2^). Dr. J. B. O. Land- 
rum's History of Spartanburg Co., S. C. (1900), p. 346, says: 

"Captain Edward Jefferson Dean, second son of Major H. J. 
Dean, was born in Spartanburg January, 1842. Was attending 
St. James College in Maryland when the call was made by the 
Governor of South Carolina for volunteers. He returned home 
at once and joining one of the first companies raised Company 
K (Spartan Rifles), Fifteenth Regiment, South Carolina Volun- 
teers, which left for Charleston April 13, 1861, and after the fall 
of Fort Sumpter went to Va. He was for one and a half years 
a corporal in Company K, when he obtained a transfer to the 
Twenty-second Regiment South Carolina Volunteers, and was 
elected Captain of Company C of said regiment, which occupied 
the trenches at Petersburg at the time of the fearful mine explo- 
sion, July 30, 1864. Colonel Daniel G. Fleming, of the Twenty- 
second, was in command of the line that morning and he with 
his adjutant and orderly were buried under the mountain of 
earth. To this day they have never been found. Company C was 
dug out one by one by the enemy and made prisoners. Captain 
Dean, with other officers, was imprisoned at Fort Delaware, in 



38 Genealogy of 

the mouth of the Delaware River. Here for eleven months he 
was confined in miserable quarters, exposed to the blazing sun of 
summer and the bitter cold of winter, and limited in supply of 
water, food and coal. When released after the surrender of Gen- 
eral Lee, Captain Dean's health was a wreck. He settled on a 
plantation in Calhoun County, Ala., hoping to regain his health 
and strength, but after several years of suffering, he laid down a 
life sacrificed for his country. He died in 1883 and is buried at 
Talladega, Ala., in the churchyard of the Baptist Church, of 
which he was a deacon. He was a gentleman of fine appearance, 
measuring six feet and five inches, erect and dignified ; was of a 
quiet, generous temperament, attaching to himself strong friends 
when he lived." 

Captain Dean was twice married. His first wife was a Miss 
Smith. His second wife was Evie Russell. One child of first 
marriage :

Dr. J. B. O. Landrum's history of Spartanburg County, S. C, 
(1900), says of Dr. Fleming: 

"Dr. C. E. Fleming, son of James David and Sarah Boatwright 
Fleming, was born in Columbia, S. C, Aug. 29th, 1835 ; gradu- 
ated in the South Carolina College in 1855, with degree of A. B. 
and A. M. In March, 1858, he graduated from the Medical De- 
partment of the Unversity of Pennsylvania and began the prac- 
tice in Spartanburg in 1859, which he continued until the out- 
break of the Civil War. He responded to the first call for vol- 
unteers by the Governor of the State, and in the spring of 1861 
became Second Lieutenant of Company K, Spartanburg Rifles, 
5th Regiment South Carolina Volunteers, which was among the 
first companies to leave Spartanburg for service. He served 
with his company for one year, when he was appointed surgeon 
of the 22d Regiment South Carolina Volunteers, which position 
he held until the surrender at Appomattox. After the war Dr. 
Fleming engaged in business pursuits and was identified with 



The Brockman and Dean Families, 39 

extensive manufacturing and other interests, was a fine business 
man, influential in business circles and in his church of which he 
was a devoted and zealous member. He died June 23, 1894, and 
of him the Spartanburg Herald said: 'Dr. Fleming was a man 
whose life was that of a typical South Carolina gentleman, the 
soul of honor — high in all his words, deeds and thoughts, but 
tender and sympathetic as a woman. In all the relations of life 
he was the exemplar of exhalted manhood, beloved by all who 
knew him * * * ' " Children :

HON. JAMES CROOK. 



President of the Aiw\bama Railroad Commission, Statesman 

AND Soldier. 

The President of the Alabama Railroad Commission is one of 
Calhoun's most distinguished sons, Hon. James Crook. 

Maj. Crook is one of the most prominent men in Alabama pol- 
itics to-day. He has been many times honored by the Democrats 
of Alabama and at the last Democratic State convention he was 
chosen chairman of that body. 

Maj. James Crook, Jr., was born at Alexandria, Calhoun coun- 
ty, October 12, 1841, and is a son of Jno. M. Crook, Sr., and Mar- 
garet (Miller) Crook, natives of Spartanburg district, S. C. 

John M. Crook, Sr., was born in 1810, and came to Alabama 
in 1834. He was a lawyer and farmer by profession and occupa- 
tion, and took an active part in politics, though declining all offi- 
cial position for himself. He was a delegate to the Secession Con- 
vention of i860, and took a prominent part in the deliberations of 
that body. 

The Crook family came originally from Wales, settling first in 
Virginia, and moving from there into South Carolina. James 
Crook, Sr., the paternal grandfather of Maj. James Crook, Jr., 
was reared and educated in South Carolina, and had the honor of 
representing the county (then district) of Spartanburg, different 
times in both branches of the State Legislature. He married a 
]\Iiss Owen, a lady of Scotch-Irish descent, and in 1834, came to 
Alabama. Here he purchased large tracts of fertile lands and de- 
voted himself to agriculture. Samuel Miller, (the maternal grand-

66 Genealogy of 

father of Maj. James Crook, Jr.) and his wife, who was a Miss 
Dean, were of Scotch-Irish extraction, and Samuel Miller was a 
soldier in the Revolutionary War. A few years prior to the War 
for Independence, a large number of Scotch-Irish settled along 
the foothills of the Blue Ridge in Pennsylvania, Virginia, North 
and South Carolina, when their farther pilgrimage was arrested 
by the beautiful scenery, fertile lands and salubrious climate of 
upper South Carolina. 

Here they built their cabins near springs of cool and delicious 
water, erected school houses and churches, and were soon living 
in peace and plenty, such as they had never known in the mother 
country. There both had been denied them by the cruelties of 
religious persecutions. 

No grander specimens of humanity have been produced any- 
where on earth than those who were born and reared in this "Pied- 
mont Region," and should we take their achievements from Amer- 
ican history, it would be robbed of some of its grandest successes 
in war, in statesmanship and religion. 

Not long were those noble pioneers left in the enjoyment of the 
blessings which Providence had so bountifully bestowed upon 
them. Some of those same Scotch-Irish were the first at Meck- 
lenburg to declare their independence of the government which 
they had learned to distrust before crossing the ocean. 

Among the first to take up the arms were Crook, Owens, Dean 
and John Miller, of the Tiger river settlement, in what is now 
called Spartanburg county, S. C. All four of those men were 
great-grandfathers of Maj. James Crook, Jr., the subject of this 
sketch. The three first named served gallantly throughout the 
War for Independence in the American army. The last named, 
John Miller, was killed by Tories and Indians during the year 
1775. The assassins were hiding under a bridge over which he 
had to pass on his way from Fort Nicholas to his home. Fort 
Nicholas was situated a short distance from the scene of the oc- 
currence, on North Tiger river, and Miller was going for sup- 
plies for his own and other families then being protected at the 
Fort. A thrilling account of his death is recorded in Howe's his- 
tory of the Presbyterian Church in South Carolina. He left one 
son, Samuel Miller, who, seven years later, took part in the battle 
of Cowpens. The last named was the maternal grandfather of 



The Brockman and Dean Families. 67 

Major Crook, who thus had four great-grandfathers and a grand- 
father in the Revokitionary War, an honor of ancestry which can 
be claimed by but few living men. Samuel Miller was subsequent- 
ly sheriff of Spartanburg county, at a time when that office com- 
bined the duties of the present clerk and probate judge. 

Major Crook was educated at the Universities of Alabama and 
Virginia. From the latter institution he took his departure shortly 
before the end of his last term, and in June, 1861, enlisted in Com- 
pany D, Tenth Alabama Regiment, as a private soldier. In 1862 
he was promoted to first lieutenant ; in 1864 he was made captain, 
and later on was promoted to the rank of major of cavalry. Soon 
after his transfer to the cavalry service, he was captured, and was 
imprisoned on Johnson's Island until the close of the war. Prior 
to his capture he had participated in many hotly contested battles. 

After the cessation of hostilities, he returned to Alexandria, and 
during the following year, at Jacksonville, he began the study of 
law in the office of Hon. W. H. Forney. He was admitted to the 
bar in 1867 and at once entered upon a successful practice of his 
profession. In that year he was made chairman of the Demo- 
cratic Executive Committee of his county, in which capacity he 
served for six years, and was contemporaneously a member of 
State Democratic Executive Committee. In 1868 he was a Sey- 
mour and Blair elector, and made a very thorough and active can- 
vass of his district. In 1869 he was elected as the nominee of the 
Democratic party to the lower House of the General Assembly. 
In 1867 he was appointed by Governor Houston to the highly hon- 
orable and responsible position of a trustee of the State Uni- 
versity, and in 1883 he was made, by statute a director in the Nor- 
mal School at Jacksonville, in both of which capacities he is still 
acting. He continued to give his attention to the practice of his 
profession until 1881, when he was elected Railroad Commis- 
sioner, with Hon. Walter L. Bragg as president and Hon. Charles 
P. Ball, associate. He has since been elected president of the 
Railroad Commission. 

Major Crook was married to Miss Annie E. Ponder, of Mont- 
gomery, Ala., in 1868, by which marriage he has a son, James 
Forney Crook.* Mrs. Crook died in 1869, and in 1871, Major

The following sketch appeared in a daily paper of Columbia : 

"Edward R. Arthur was born in Columbia, Nov. 9, 1849, ^^^ ^^ 
his death resided in the house in which he first saw light. His 
primary education was received at private schools of the city. In 
the fall of 1866 he entered the Virginia Military Institute, and 
was graduated in 1870. Upon returning to Columbia he read law 
under C. D, Melton, Esq., and at the same time attended the law 
department of the South Carolina College, graduating with the 
degree of LL. B., in 1871. The same year Capt. Arthur entered 
in the practice of law, which he continued until elected Clerk of 
the Circuit Court. 

"Capt. Arthur was elected clerk in November, 1880, and quali- 
fied in December of the same year. Since that time he has served 
without interruption, being re-elected four consecutive times. 

" Capt. Arthur was a member of the Knights of Pythias and a 
Mason. In the latter order he stood very high, having taken all 
the degrees except the Scottish rite. He was past eminent com- 
mander of the Columbia Commandery, No. 2 ; past thrice illus- 
trious master of Union Council, No. 5 ; past master Richland 
Lodge, No. 9, and past district grand deputy master for the then

for fifteen years served as a member of the Richland Volunteer 
Rifle Company and the old Richland Rifle Company, which he 
helped organize, entering as a private and retiring as captain,

"Capt. Arthur was a man that the county could ill afford to lose.

For 17 years he has served as clerk and has made a faithful and 
efficient officer. His friends were numbered only by those who 
knew him. He was a brave, true and good man, one who always 
worked for the good of his city, county and State. He was a 
noble-hearted, generous man and many will have cause to lament 
his untimely end."

PART IV 



The Davis Family 



THE DAVIS FAMILY 



FIRST GENERATION. 

1. 

JONATHAN^ DAVIS, who was the founder of the Davis 
family in the United States of which the following account 
treats, was born in England about 1730, and came to America 
when quite young. We have more than one account of his early 
history. Dr. John D. Garrard, late of Birmingham, Ala., who 
was a great-grandson and who had devoted much time collecting 
information relating to his ancestry said : 

"Jonathan Davis was born in England about 1730, and died in Wilkes 
Co., Ga., in Feb. or Mar., 1818. His father died when he was quite small 
and left him and a younger brother and perhaps one or two sisters, as well 
as his mother, who married again. The step-father treated the boys 
badly and Jonathan ran away when about twelve j^ears old, and made his 
way to America." 

Another story of his early life is that "he was captured off the 
coast of Wales when but a lad and brought to New York on a 
piratic tramp trading vessel and disposed of upon some terms to 
a New York merchant, who afterwards assisted him in making 
a start in life." 

The earliest reliable account we have of Jonathan Davis was 
about the time of his marriage to Lucy Gibbs, a daughter of a 
prominent Va. family. They were married about 1756. Miss 
Gibbs was born about 1738 and died in Wilkes Co., Ga., about 
1818. 

Mr. Davis bought lands and settled in Orange Co., Va., where 
his children all grew up and were married before he left Va., and 
settled in Wilkes Co., about 1803. He gave his farm to his son 
William, who moved into the house with his parents some time 
before their death. (See copy of his will page 2.) Jonathan 
Davis and his wife were the parents of nine or more children. 
We find in his will that eight are named as legatees ; we have 



2 Genealogy of 

no record of any others, but tradition has it that there were two 
other sons, Jonathan and Reuben. It is said Jonathan died of 
fever when about eighteen years old. Reuben must also have 
died young or in early manhood, as we have no account of de- 
scendants, and a perusal of the will discloses the fact that Jona- 
than Davis was scrupulously exact in distributing his property 
equally among his children. (See the will.) It is quite evident if 
he had other children than those named in his will they had died 
without living issue. 

We find in Catljart's Baptist Encyclopedia a sketch of the 
life of his son, Rev. William Davis. He speaks of "the con- 
version of his parents, two other brothers, his youngest brother 
and several of his sisters." This seems pretty clearly to indicate 
there was at least one other son than those named in the will. 
Sons and daughters in the order named were: 

2. i. James^ 

3. ii. Mary, b. about 1757; m. David Phillips. 

4. iii. John, b. about 1759; m. Mary Easton. 

5. iv. William, b. Jan. 7, 1765 ; m. Nancy Easton. 

6. V. Lucy, b. ; m. Goodall. 

7. vi. Mildred, b. ; m. Thomas Phillips. 

8. vii. Susannah, b. Oct., 1769; m. Benjamin Goss. 

9. viii. Elizabeth, b. about 1780; m. James Hitchcock.

SECOND GENERATION. 

2. 

JAMES- DAVIS (i) being the first named in the will of his 
father, is supposed to have been first born. We have not been 
able to procure a copy of the family record of Jonathan Davis 
nor any account of the family and descendants of James Davis. 

3. 

MARY" DAVIS (i) was born in Va. and married David 
Phillips in her native State. They moved to the State of Ga., 
about 1803, and settled in Wilkes Co. Mrs. Miles J. Green, of 
Clanton, Chilton Co., Ala., writes Jan. 27, 1902: "I have often 
heard my mother say, that my grandparents, David and Mary 
Phillips, had sixteen children." We have an accoimt of eleven. 
Order of birth conjectural :

REV. JOHN- DAVIS (i) was bom in Orange Co., Va., and 
married Mary Easton in Va. He was born about 1759 and died 
Oct. 9, 1 83 1. He came to the State of Ga., in early manhood and 
was ordained to the ministry. He moved from Ga., to Franklin 
Co., Tenn., thence in 1816, to Franklin Co., Ala., settling at Rus- 
selville. He was the agent in God's hands in building up the 
churches that formed the Muscle Shoals Baptist Association. 

Reuben E. Davis, his son, in his book Recollections of Missis- 
sippi and Mississippians^ says : 

"My father was one of the earliest settlers in this county (Russell 
Valley, Ala.). He was a man of limited means and though of strong 
and vigorous intellect, had only the imperfect education of the pioneers 
of that day. His chief study was the Bible and a few volumes of history 
which formed his only library. Although a Baptist Minister of high 
standing, he occupied himself during the week, with ordinary farm labor, 
and could never be induced to accept any compensation for his services 
in the church ; this would have been according to his belief, 'serving the 
Lord for hire.' Both of my parents were born in Va. and remained there 
until ten children were added to their family. Then they moved to 
Tenn. and settled near Winchester, where I was the twelfth and last child 
bom. When I was about five years old my father moved from Tenn. 
to North Ala.* 

"My father did not allow his children to read the Bible, holding that 
it could only be studied with profit by those whose minds were fully 
matured and informed by experience. I was, however, taught that the 
world was exactly six thousand years old, and I believed it to a day; 
I was told that Adam was created out of the dust of the ground; and Eve 
out of a rib of Adam's side; I believed this too. I was informed that 
placed in a delightful garden they ate of the forbidden tree and thus 
came death and all our woe ! All this I devoutly believed upon my father's 
testimony. My mother died when I was about twelve years old and the 
grief which this loss occasioned, shadowed my existence for years. She 
was a woman of great tenderness and sweetness of character and I was 
passionately devoted to her. Through my whole life I have carried the 
most affectionate memory of her in my heart." 

Children : 

* Mr. Davis moved from Va., to Ga., and thence to Tenn., and finally to 
Ala.

REV. WILLIAAP DAVIS (i) was born in Va., Jan. 7. 1765, 
and married Nancy Easton, in Va., Miss Easton was born and 
reared in Philadelphia, Pa., and was a Quakeress, but later in life 
joined the Baptist Church. About 1793 Mr. Davis with his fam- 
ily, which was of considerable size, moved to the State of Ga., 
and settled in Wilkes Co. He was an excellent Baptist minister 
as well as four of his sons and many of his grandsons. We find 
in Campbell's Georgia Baptist, the following elaborate sketch of 
the life and ministerial work of Mr. Davis : 

"Rev. William Davis was a native of Orange Co., Va., where he was 
born Jan. 7, 1765. His parents were poor but honest and respectable, 
and were members of the Episcopal Church. He became concerned about 
his soul at the early age of nine years. Two sermons which he heard about 
this time, one by an Episcopalian, the other by a Presbyterian, made a 
deep impression on his mind. The Baptist, then called 'newlights' com- 
menced preaching in his native county about the same time. Much was 
said against them, as those who were 'turning the world up side down' 
which raised much anxiety in the mind of young Davis to hear them. The 
first opportunity of the kind he enjoyed was to hear an exhortation and 
prayer from one John Bledsoe. This served to deepen his religious im- 
pressions, and frequently at that tender age he was known to go forward 
voluntarily and ask the minister to pray for him. He continued serious 
by turns, until in his fourteenth (14) year, a conversation he had with a 
pious negro in his father's employment (a Baptist) fully awakened him to 
a sense of his lost condition as a sinner. For some six months, his mind 
was in great distress. During those days of darkness he went far and 
near, by day and by night, as far as lay in his power, to hear the gospel 
from the Baptist preachers, who were itinerating through the country. 
One night he went some four miles from his father's residence to attend 
a meeting held by Elijah Craig. During the service his feelings became 
such as to unnerve him, he swooned away, and remained in a helpless state 
for some time. In this condition the Lord brought him deliverance to his 
soul. He rose rejoicing, and began at once to exhort his fellow mortals 
to flee from the wrath to come. At this time his parents resided in Cul- 
peper County, and were opposers and persecutors of the Baptists. William 
left the parental roof, rather unceremoniously perhaps, walked some four- 
teen or fifteen miles to a Baptist church in Orange Co., called Blue Run, 
where he was immersed in his fifteenth year. 



Genealojrv of

"As soon as he had discharged this solemn duty, he returned home and 
submitted himself to his parents. Soon thereafter, being encouraged by his 
brethem, he was in the habit of exercising publicly in exhortation and 
prayer. These exercises were sanctified to the conversion of his parents, 
his two older brothers, his youngest brother and several of his sisters. All 
of these became Baptists and continued in the comfort of the Holy Ghost 
until their death. At sixteen years of age though much against the will 
of his friends, Mr. Davis, volunteered as a soldier of the Revolution, and 
was for some time under the command of General Lafayette. He was 
wounded in the head, suffered greatly from fatigue and hunger. While the 
Army of Lafayette was on a forced march to join Washington in the 
capture of Cornwallis, young Davis was without a morsel of food two 
whole days. This having come to the ears of the General, he was sent to 
his tent, and with his own hands he furnished the youthful soldier with 
food. This kindness, on the part of Lafayette, was remembered with 
gratitude all his life. He was heard to mention it during his last sick- 
ness. He was present at the surrender of Cornwallis, and after the war 
returned to his family, in Va., where he enjoyed the friendship and con- 
fidence of the Madisons, Barbours and other distinguished men of the State. 
"In 1/88, he was licensed to preach the gospel, while yet in his' native 
State, and was ordained in Georgia by Dozier, Thornton and Thomas 
Maxwell in 1793. His education was quite limited, yet he was a man 
of strong mind, excellent memory, and a fine imagination. His manner 
was easy yet forcible. He was an original thinker, and his style of oratory 
was peculiar to himself — bold and energetic. His character was without 
spot or blemish, and his piety was of a high order. One fact proves that 
he lived the religion that he preached ; eleven out of twelve children 
which he had, became worthy members of the church during their par- 
ent's life time ; three of them preachers — Jonathan, James and Jesse and 
two others, Jeptha and William Deacons. As a pastor, he stood high with 
the church which enjoyed his watchful care. The church in the fork of 
Broad river (Elbert County), he served twenty years; that at Beaver dam 
twelve years ; Clark's Station nine years, etc. He possessed the faculty of 
drawing out his brethren, who were called of God to the ministry ; among 
those who raised up under him, were the following: E. Shakelford, Isaac 
Shuttle, Elijah Mosely, Isham Goss, James Holis and Sylvanus Gibson. 

"In the middle of life Mr. Davis was a person of fine appearance, weigh- 
mg upwards of two hundred pounds. He suffered much in after life from 
dropsy in the chest, and was so debilitated as to make it necessary that 
he should resign all pastorial charges, yet was in the habit of visiting the 
churches whenever he was able to ride, and when unable to stand, he 
would preach in a sitting posture. While thus standing on the borders of 
the tomb his ministry was greatly blessed. His farewell discourse to the 
people of Elbert Co. was delivered while he sat on a table in the open air, 
and such was the powerful eft'ect produced, that it was regarded as the 
commencement of one of the most glorious revivals ever experienced in 
that county. He was decidedly favorable to ministerial education, and was 
one of the Board of Mount Enon Academy. He was opposed to the loca- 
tion, however, and always believed that that was the cause of its failure. 
The temperance cause never had a warmer friend. On this subject he 
addressed letters to the Sarepta and Georgia Associations, when too infirm 
to attend their sessions. 

"For several months previous to his death he had a presentiment that his 
end was near — often spoke of it, and arranged all his worldly business with 
reference to it. All his children were invited to make him a last visit, and 
on doing so, he requested each of his sons to lay their hand on the scar 
on his head (the result of a wound he received in his youth while a soldier 
of the Revolution) and solemnly charged them severally to be faithful to 
their country's interest and glory. He was in attendance on a Methodist

camp meeting some ten days before his death, when he was taken suddenly 
ill. His wife, who was absent on a visit, was sent for as also his children. 
When they arrived he told them the day and the hour he expected to 
depart hence and be with Christ. When that day arrived he spent a part 
of it in writing and to his friends present gave a circumstantial account of 
his early life. Some two or three hours previous to his exit he was in 
great pain and frequently called upon God for help. Of his son, Jonathan 
and James, who had not yet arrived, he spoke in a most affectionate man- 
ner. To his son, Isaac (the only one of his children not in the church), 
he made a most touching appeal to meet his aged father in heaven. 

"After bidding his wife and children a last farcivcll, he desired to be 
raised up in the bed — then, raising his hands toward heaven, he shouted 
aloud 'Victory! Victory! Victory!' laid down calmly and instantly expired. 
This glorious triumph of faith took place on Oct. 31, 1831, in his 67th year." 

His widow survived him eleven years. It is rather remarkable 
that she did not become a professor of religion until after her 
husband's death. She was finally baptized by her son Jonathan, 
and died full of years in strong hope of eternal happiness. Chil-

REUBEN E.' DAVIS (4). The following account of the life 
and career of Reuben E. Davis is gleaned from his book, Recol- 
lections of Mississippi and Alississippians. He was the 12th 
and youngest child of Rev. John Davis, was born in Winchester, 
Tenn., and when about five years old, the family emigrated to 
Ala., and settled in Russell Valley, where he was reared on a 
farm, assisting in farm work and receiving only a common school 
education. 

He says in his book: 

"While still a lad I left home to begin a new chapter in my preparation 
for life. My father decided, after much hesitation and many misgivings, 
that I should be allowed to study medicine. All my desires pointed even 
then to the law, but my father held stubbornly to his peculiar theories on 
this subject. It was very clear to him, he said, that lawyers were wholly 
given up to the devil even in this world, and that it was impossible for any 
one of them ever to enter the kingdom of heaven. This being the case, he 
could not, in conscience, allow a son of his to enter the ranks of a pro- 
fession foredoomed to everlasting burnings. He also entertained strong 
doubts as to the final welfare of medical inen in general, but admitted that 
some few might be saved, provided they used their best endeavors not to 
kill their patients and resisted the temptation to prolong illness with a 
view to pecuniary profit." 

"After solemn admonition on these points, I left home with my father's 
consent and blessing, to read medicine with my brother-in-law. Dr. Hig- 
gason, in Hamilton, Monroe County, Mississippi." 

After about two years' study and preparation Dr. Davis com- 
menced the practice of medicine in Russellville, Ala. He did not 
practice but a few years, however, until he determined to take up 
the study of law, and about 1832 was admitted to the bar and 
moved to Monroe Co., Miss., to engage in law practice. In the 
meantime he had married Mary Halbert. They discussed the mat- 
ter of leaving her with her friends until he went to Miss, and 



The Davis Family. 

prepared a home for her. She was cheerful and resolute and pos- 
itively refused to be left behind. She said they had married with 
the full knowledge that they had their own way to make and must 
make it together, and she expressed the most perfect confidence 
that a bright future awaited them, if they should have courage 
enough to be happy in the midst of the privations and hardships 
of youth. "In short she encouraged and cheered me as only a 
devoted wife could do, and though we had some hard experience, 
1 do not remember a single moment of despondence on her part." 

Mr. Davis began the practice of law at Athens, Monroe Co., 
Miss., and soon became eminent as a lawyer, especially so as a 
criminal lawyer. He was widely known and recognized for his 
success in acquiting persons indicted for criminal offenses. He 
says he defended many persons and never had a client hung. 

Mr. Davis commanded a regiment in the Mexican War and in 
1857 was elected to the United States Congress. He died sud- 
denly at Huntsville, Ala., while on a tour selling his book. 

There was no issue by his marriage to Miss Halbert. This wife 
died and he married again. His widow resides at Aberdeen,

Obituary. 

Elder William Davis. — Being the last and only surviving member of the 
family of eleven children of Elder William Davis, who died in Wilkes 
county, Ga., in the year 1832. I take this method to give notice to the rela- 
tives and friends of my last brother, Elder William Davis, of Heard county, 
of his death, which occurred at his home in said county on the 17th day of 
July, 1873. He was in the 77th year of his life. He joined the Baptist 
Church at Clark's Station, in Wilkes Co., Ga., in the year 1828; was made 
a deacon years after; and in the latter part of his life was ordained to the 
great work of the gospel ministry. He was one of the faithful and devout 
men of God. Those who best knew him loved him most. He died as 
above stated at his home in a remarkable way. The day before his death 
he visited one of his Baptist brethren about two and a-half miles off, came 
home in the evening, rested well and quietly all night, rose early next 
morning and said to his wife and children that he would die that day, and 
was unusually cheerful. He spent most of the morning reading religious 
works. About half after eleven o'clock, lying on his bed, he made slight 
complaint. His son William, who was eating his dinner at the time soon 
finished his meal and went to look after him, bpt found he had gotten up 
and walked out in the piazza and seated himself in a chair. His son no- 
ticed that he looked a little pale in the face, and, laying his hand on his 
head, asked him if he would not again lie down. He arose, walked into his 
room and to his bed, law down and was dead in a minute. Died without a 
groan or a struggle. Died! did I say? Went to sleep in Jesus, his Saviour. 

"Asleep in Jesus — blessed sleep. 
From which none ever wake to weep ; 
A calm und undisturbed repose, 
Unbroken by the last of foes." 

"He is gone where the pendulum vibrates ever always ! ever always ! and 
the clock strikes no more !"

Rev. JONATHAN" DAVIS (5) was born in Wilkes Co., 
Ga., Nov. 17, 1798, and was twice married. His first wife was 
Elizabeth Johnson, who bore ten children and died in 1841. Mr. 
Davis' second wife was Mary Bledsoe, born Mar. 31, 1823, and 
educated at Griffin, Ga. They were married July 30, 1844. There 
were born of this marriage seven children. 

Mr. Davis died Aug. 20, 1869. 

Mrs. Mary Bledsoe Davis died Sept. 11. 1878. 

We take the following sketch of the life and ministerial work 
of Rev. Jonathan Davis from Campbell's Georgia Baptist: 

"Rev. Jonathan Davis * * * * At what age he was converted we 
are not informed, though it is believed to have been when he was yet 
young. He was baptized by his father and soon after commenced preach- 
ing. Soon after his ordination he took charge of a small church in Elbert 
County, which had barely a nominal existence, and which had been on the 
eve of dissolution for years. A gracious revival was soon experienced, and 
the membership was increased to upwards of a hundred. About the year 
1829, he became pastor of the church at Crawfordvill^, where he resided 
for years, and where the greatest success crowned his labors. The church 
enjoyed a succession of revivals, during which hundreds were converted 
and baptized. The blessed influence extended to the neighboring churches, 
which also experienced great prosperity. It is related of him that he bap- 
tized sixty on a certain Sabbatli morning at Bethesda church, Green county. 
Ga." 

"During a portion of the time of his residence at Crawfordsville he also 
served the Antioch and Sugar Creek Churches in Morgan county, in both 
of which his ministry was eminently successful — said to have baptized at the 
latter church upwards of seventy candidates on one occasion. At another 
time said to have baptized more than eighty. There was no duty in which 
he delighted more than administering baptism. Long before his ministry 
ceased it was said he had baptized upwards of three thousand persons. 
The temperance cause, which for a series of years, occupied much public 
attention, and excited much interest, found in Mr. Davis an ardent friend 
and an eloquent advocate. In fact there was no cause involving the inter- 
est of his fellow-men, to the support of which he did not bring all the 
ardor of his nature, all the gifts of oratory, with which he was so highly 
endowed. He threw his whole soul into the support of the objects of the 
Baptist State convention, especially the improvement of rising ministry. 
His own education having been quite limited, he left nothing undone that 
would contribute to the advantage of the young ministers rising up around 
him. He accordingly made provision for the board and tuition of several 
young brethren at Crawfordville, where he resided. 

"He was of an exceedingly kind and Christian spirit. He was not a man 
of strife, but a man of peace ; he delighted in being a peacemaker. He was 
a man of strong faith — 'Have faith in God.' In the year 1835, vvhile yet in 
the zenith of his popularity and usefulness, he moved from Crawfordville 
with several other prominent families from the same region and settled in 
the village of Palmyra, on Kinchafoonce Creek, in Lee countv. Here he 
spent many years in active ministerial labors, which were crowned with 
abundant success in founding and building up churches and in giving the 
Baptist a prestige in that section which they have never lost. He received 



1 6 Genealogy of 

active sympathy and liberal support from the intelligent and pious men who 
emigrated with him to that region — the James Mercur and others of the 
same class — and from those who were brought into the kingdom through 
his instrumentality. Here also he raised a large family, many of whom or 
their children reside in Southwestern Ga., and all of whom occupy responsi- 
ble positions in society and are faithful adherants of the faith so ably ad- 
vocated by their worthy sire. He died Aug. 20, 1869, and Mrs. Mary Bled- 
soe Davis died Sept. 11, 1878. 

The following sketch of the life and character of Rev. Jona- 
than Davis is furnished by a friend : 

Johnathan Davis was a unique character, self-made, independent. When 
eighteen he married Elizabeth Johnson in her sixteenth year. He always 
overlooked his father's farm and attended to all business of a secular 
nature. 

Rev. William Davis in making his will said : To my son Jonathan 
I bequeath my blessing, my wife and five dollars. To my wife the 
portion of two children. Jonathan baptized his mother after the death of 
his father. She had retained her Quaker faith through a long useful life. 
After her death he would have none of the "double portion," always 
affirmed that the blessing was sufficient, all he wished. He was successful 
as farmer, minister, and in raising a large family, upon whom the blessing 
must have descended. 

He was among the first settlers in South West Georgia. Bought up 
quantities of government land and with the inducement of cheap homes 
soon had the country around Albany and Palmyra full of inhabitants. He 
was a king among the "princes of Southern hospitality." One of the 
"knightliest knights of Southern chivalry." He had touched the scar on 
the forehead of his father, received in defence of his country during the 
Revolution and with all the sons promised to be true to "States Rights." 
He was so opposed to secession he had every light put out in his home the 
night Albany was illuminated when Georgia seceded. Yet when "the die 
was cast" Sherman found him in Atlanta defending "States Rights." 

He had corresponded with Senator JeflFerson Davis before the war and 
was so interested in his career as President of the Confederate States, 
wrote several advisory letters, finally made one or two visits, hoping to 
prevent one or two mistakes he was fearful would be made. One of his 
daughters remonstrated when the letters were sent. He replied: "It may 
look like conceit, but I cannot consider that when so much is at stake. 
Your uncle James was a great admirer of Queen Victoria and at one 
crisis in her reign when outside help seemed to be needed, wrote her a 
letter full of good counsel. The course advised was certainly adopted." 
Kit Warren, in his reminiscences of old Palmyra, says that rnore people 
were baptized and more churches established by Jonathan Davis than any 
other minister in the State. His special mission seemed to be making 
.strong the weak and building up waste places. He was a friend to any 
needing friendship. Many in Georgia can remember kindly aid given in 
education. W. N. Chandoin in the cemetery at Albany dedicated to his 
memory the sweet old hymn : 

"Servant of God, well done, 
Rest from thy loved employ ; 
Thee hath fought, the victory won,

JEPTHA V.^ DAVIS (5) was born in Wilkes Co., Ga., on 
Dec. 10, 1 801. He was brought up to work on the farm and 
had but little opportunity to go to school. The whole of his 
scholastic opportunity afforded him a chance to spell and read a 
little with a sort of begining in aritmetic. 

After arriving at manhood he became an overseer on other 
men's farms and in this way accumulated some property by econ- 
omy and frugality. His father died in 1832 and left him some 
property, perhaps a negro boy and negro girl. He was careful 
with whatever he bought or owned. 

The Civil War found him with a very large family of sons and 
daughters, on most of whom he had bestowed much in the way 
of education, and he was still worth about $25,000. 

He was a strong advocate of education, a great admirer of com- 
mon sense, of which he had more than falls to the lot of men 
generally. 

At or about the age of 2y he married Temperance Daniel, said 
to have been a charmingly beautiful young woman. 

Mr. Davis when a young man was very much inclined to infi- 
delity, although his father was a Baptist minister, and two of his 
2

brothers had become Baptist ministers, he rather cultivated his 
infidel thoughts until he was more than well grown, but grad- 
ually the truth dawned upon him that he was a sinner and about 
that time he had a dream which greatly impressed him. He 
sought God in prayer and sought the prayers of Christians and 
finally had very strong manifestation of the love of Jesus, joined 
the Baptist Church in Wilkes Co., and was baptized by his 
brother, Rev. James Davis. 

He was exceptionally a devout Christian. He moved to Heard 
Co. in the latter part of 1836. He and his wife placed their mem- 
bership in Bethel Church in said county. He was elected a dea- 
con of the same a few years after, became a most zealous member, 
leading many times in prayer meeting and became famous in the 
churches for many miles around in Heard and other counties as 
an exhorter. Many souls were led by him to Christ. 

As a citizen he stood high, serving his county as a grand juror 
and otherwise. In politics he was a Whig, but would not con- 
sent, though urged to do so, to seek or have any office or be sent to 
the Legislature. 

The first of Jan. 1847 he moved to Coweta Co., and settled near 
the town of Newnan, where he continued his same methods of 
life and spent much of his time during the summer months with 
the churches, and was greatly successful in his efforts in his 
church and Christian work. A great many young people were 
brought to Christ through his influence and many a preacher 
was assisted by him in protracted meetings, and many times he 
was sent for and asked to "come and help us." For all this work, 
which continued up to the end of the war, he would not accept 
any financial remuneration. 

He was made treasurer of the Western Association of Ga. in 
1846 against his wishes and held the place for several years be- 
cause his brethren so requested. 

He was very fond of his children and took great delight in the 
companionship of his wife and children. Never husband loved 
or honored wife more than he. His wife died on July 3, 1853, 
leaving 14 children, the youngest about one year old. It was a 
crushing blow and for a time he often wept and lamented her 



The Davis Family. 19 

departure. But he was never heard in this severe or any other 
affliction to utter a murmuring word at the providence of God. 
He was a man of the strongest faith and never once seemed to 
doubt that God was good and did all things well with him. God 
was ruler and he bowed in submission to His will. This sad event 
but increased his religious zeal and love for Christ and immortal 
souls. His home was ever a home for preachers, and many of 
them knew it — the door was open to them and they came just 
when it suited them. 

Hon. A. H. Stephens was his life long personal friend, and 
like Mr. Stephens, he thought the separate secession of the States 
not a wise policy, but preferred that all the Southern States should 
act in concert if they seceded. But the State of Georgia having 
once seceded he accepted the situation and six of his sons made 
true and brave soldiers in the Confederate army and fought in 
many a battle. He prayed that God would spare them — four of 
them were wounded but only one was killed, his oldest. 

When hospitals were established at Newnan he gave the 
wounded and sick soldiers almost his entire time, saying words 
of encouragement, administering to their wants and persuading 
them to have Jesus as their friend and Saviour. He accepted the 
results of the Civil War without a murmur, although the larger 
part of the property for which he had labored was swept away 
and that his first born son had fallen in battle, it was a maxim of 
his life : "Thy will be done on earth as in Heaven." Some time 
after the death of his first wife he married a second wife, who 
was Sarah A, Daniel, a maiden niece of his first wife, and by 
this union was born to them five children. Thus it was by the 
two wives he became the father of (19) nineteen children, every 
one of whom loved and honored him in the superlative degree, 
and every one of whom he saw baptized and received into the 
Baptist Church on a full profession of faith in Christ 
except two, one of them died when about twelve years 
old, the other, the youngest by his second wife was 
only ten or eleven years old when the father died. Mr. 
Davis died on Sept. 19, 1883, lacking less than three months of 
being 82 years old. He died as he had lived, with an unyielding 



20 Genealogy ol 

faith in the Saviour to whom he had committed his all, and is 
quoted as having said a few days before his death : "O death 
where is thy sting; O grave where is thy victory?" and uttered 
among his very last intelligent expressions : "I am not afraid to 
die." He is buried in the family burying ground, one and one- 
half miles east of Newnan. A volume could be written of this 
good man, his life was pure — he loved truth for truth's sake and 
no influence of wealth, position or power could change or abate 
his devotion for truth or principle — he was of iron nerve when 
defending the right, 

Mrs. Temperance (Daniel) Davis, the first wife of Jeptha V. 
Davis, was born in Green Co., Ga., on December 4, 1808. She 
united with the Baptist Church at old Bethesda in said county 
when about 18 or 19 years of age, and was baptized by Rev. 
Jonathan Davis, who after her marriage became her brother-in- 
law. 

She was heard to speak often of the great anguish of soul she 
felt while under conviction for sin — at times almost despaired of 
ever finding relief. It was while a blind preacher, whose name 
is now unknown, was delivering a sermon somewhere in the 
neighborhood of where her mother (a widow) lived when she 
believed and trusted in Jesus as her Saviour. She expressed 
much happiness over this result. 

It was a favorite song with her during all her life which begins 
thus: 

"What wondrous love is this? 
O my soul ! O my soul ! 
What wondrous love is this? 
That caused the Lord of Bliss 
To bear the dreadful curse 
For my soul, for my soul." 

She was married to Jeptha V. Davis in 1828 or 9 and after- 
wards moved with her husband to Crawfordville, Taliaferro 
Co., and thence to Heard Co., 1836, and thence to Corveta, 1846, 
where she died with a congestive chill on July 3, 1853. She was 
blessed with 14 children, 11 boys and 3 girls, all of whom sur- 
vived her, the youngest being about one year old when the mother 
died. 

She loved her church ; she loved her home ; she loved her 
husband ; she loved her children ; she loved her neighbors ; she 



The Davis Family. 21 

loved her servants. The large family demanded her presence 
at home and she verily believed her duty was to make the home 
happy, and often said her mission in life was to take care of 
her children and the household. She was especially watch- 
ful over the moral and religious training of her children. Ten- 
derly and lovingly did she minister to their wants, but as all 
mothers ought to do, she demanded their obedience. She 
seemed at all times influenced by a sense of love, duty and 
fidelity. She was a woman of much prayer and delighted 
in reading the New Testament. It was largely through her 
influence that her husband was first brought forward as a 
public exhorter, and she manifested a special anxiety that he 
should first take up and then regularly keep up family prayer. 
She greatly enjoyed the visits of friends to her home and always 
made them happy with table comforts and pleasant rooms. The 
preachers understood there was a "preacher's room" for them 
and many, aye very many of them availed themselves of her 
bountiful supplies in their behalf. 

"Aunt Tempy," as she was called, was often quoted as an ex- 
ample for other mothers and wives. At her funeral, which oc- 
curred at the family grave, she being the first buried there, one 
mile and a half east of Newnan, hundreds of friends and relatives 
attested their love and devotion by their attendance ; and per- 
haps a hundred voices sang before the final close of the grave : 

"Sister, thou was mild and lovely, 
Gentle as the summer breeze, 
Pleasant as the air of evening 
When it floats among the trees. 

"Dearest sister, thou hast left us ; 
Here thy loss we deeply feel ; 
But 'tis God who hath bereft us; 
He can all our sorrows heal. 

"Yet again we hope to meet thee; 
When the day of life is fled. 
Then in heaven with joy to greet thee, 
Where no farewell tear is shed." 

Sarah A. Daniel, the second wife of Jeptha V. Davis, was 
born in Green Co., Ga., in 1825 or 1826. She was the daughter 
of pious parents and united with the church at Bethesda when 
about eighteen or twenty years of age ; was baptized as is now 
believed bv Rev. S. G. Hillver. D. D. 



22 Genealogy of 

She was a good woman, pious and prayerful. Her husband, 
her senior in years, was greatly honored and loved by her ; she 
manifested towards him in the nearly thirty years of their mar- 
ried life the tenderest devotion and nursed him in his last years 
of life with a fondness which was indeed, it seems, tireless. Her 
own health for eight or ten years previous to his death was poor, 
but she appeared to forget herself and count her own affliction 
but small when she could administer to wants of husband and 
children. She was greatly loved by husband and children in 
return. Her step-children, especially the large number of them 
who came under her motherly care, honored her and enjoyed her 
presence and company. She was remarkably kind and tender 
towards them. She had a heavy task in life but she performed 
it in a God-given spirit. 

After the death of her husband her affliction increased and 
the struggle in life grew harder, but all this she bore with heroic 
courage. 

One of her daughters died just as she arrived at womanhood 
but the mother murmured not and complained not at God's deal- 
ing with her. 

During her last years she was a great sufferer, but exhibited a 
truly resigned and Christian spirit in it all. 

This good woman died at the home of her eldest daughter in 
the city of Atlanta in June, 1896, and was buried in the family 
graveyard by the side of her husband, one and a half miles east 
of Newnan. Children:

REV. JAMES^ DAVIS (5) was born Jan. 22, 1805, in Elbert 
Co., Ga., and married Louisa Edith Hudson, July 31, 1823. 
Miss Hudson was born Jan. 17, 1803, in Elbert Co., Ga. Mr. 
and Mrs. Davis were members of the Baptist Church and he was 
a minister of that denomination. We find the following- sketch 
of Rev. James Davis in Cathart's Baptist Encyclopaedia : 

"Rev. James Davis, one of the most useful ministers that ever lived in 
the western part of Georgia, including Coweta, Troup, Heard, Meriwether, 
and the adjoining counties, was born in Wilkes Co., Jan. 22, 1805. He 
married and joined the church when quite a young man, and never after- 
wards could relate his Christian experience without manifesting deep 
emotion. He moved from Elbert to Jasper Co. in 1826, where he was 
both licensed and ordained. Returning to Elbert Co. in 1828 he preached 
there for several years with increasing power and success. About 1830 
he moved to the western part of the state where he spent the remaining 
portion of his life, acting as a pioneer Baptist and preaching those Baptist 
principles which to-day flourish so extensively in that section. Strong in 
native intellect, robust in constitution, untiring in energy, and inspired by 
the sole desire to 'preach Christ crucified,' Mr. Davis left his impression 
on the entire section of country in which he lived. He assisted in the 
constitution of the Baptist Church at Lagrange and indeed most of the 
Baptist Churches in the counties where he labored. A friend of education, 
strongly missionary in spirit, earnest, devout, gifted and eloquent preacher, 
struggled nobly to disseminate the great truths of Christianity as main- 
tained by his denomination ; and he did much to give moral tone to the 
community in which he lived as any man. Good and useful here he died 
as he lived in the faith of Jesus. He passed away in Sept., 1859, at his 



24 Genealogy of 

home in Heard Co. To his only absent son, Rev. Willliam H. Davis, then 
residing at Hepzibah, Ga., he sent this simple message: 'Strive, my son, 
to be a good minister of the gospel and meet me in glory.' We know that 
one injunction has been fulfilled and we have every reason to believe both 
have been."

REV. JESSE MERCERY DAVIS (5) was born in Wilkes Co., 
Ga., Jan. 25, 1807. He moved to Southwest, Ga., with his brother 
Jonathan about 1836. He was thrice married. His first wife 
was Sophia Burton. His second was a widow, Mrs. Gilbert, and 
his third also a widow, was Mrs. McGoldrick. 

We find in History of the Baptist Denomination of Georgia 
— (Index Co.) the following sketch: 

" * * * Rev. Jesse M. Davis was bom in Wilkes Co., Ga., Jan. 25, 
1807, and during boyhood labored with his brothers on his father's farm. 
He possessed a very superior mind; was ambitious and studious, and so 
availed himself of eighteen months' only of schooling that he laid the 
solid foundation of an education that was very respectable, and which, by 
application, continued to improve throughout his life. He was an earnest 
and beautiful speaker with a mind both logical and philosophical, and in 
conversation was brilliant and interesting. His voice was musical and fas- 
cinating, his manners were genial and captivating, while his personal ap- 
pearance was handsome and imposing. He commenced the practice of 
law at Ellerton, Ga., in his eighteenth year, but in his twenty-first year 
he was converted and baptized, and soon after abandoned his profession 
to preach the Gospel, for like Paul he felt 'Woe is me if I preach not 
the Gospel.' The same year in which he joined the church he married 
Miss Sophia Burton, a lady of rare attainments, whose Christian virtues 
and brilliant mind added much to her husband's advancement. He was 
ordained about 1830, and in 1835 moved from Elbert to Lee county, then 
a frontier of the State, and infested by Indians. At one time he was 
compelled to abandon his home and send his family to Twiggs County for 
safety, but he himself remained and joined the company organized to 
pursue and combat the Indians. As soon as peace and quiet were restored 
his family returned and he then built, upon his own land and at his own 
expense, a Baptist house of worship, which he named Hebron. He then 



The Davis Family. 25 

built up a church for which he preached twenty-three years without re- 
muneration. For the same number of years he dwelt in Lee County, and 
by planting accumulated a large property. The doors of his home, known 
as 'Pleasant Level,' being ever thrown open for rich and poor alike, and 
its numerous visitors cordially welcomed with a true Christian hospitality. 

"He always had the care of three or four different churches, but never, 
until the war, in its results swept away his ample fortune, did he accept 
any compensation for his pastoral labor. In 1858 he removed to Decatur 
Co. where he resided during the war. Although opposed to secession 
he quietly acquiesced in the action of his State and at his own expense 
armed and equipped a comoany for military service. While the war 
lasted he was a true friend of the families of our soldiers who were in the 
service, sparing neither time nor money to supply their necessities ; and 
yet so unostentatious was his generosity that none outside of his own 
family were aware of its extent. 

"After the close of the war he was called to the care of the church 
in Blakely, Ga., where, after four months of grievous suffering in the bed 
of languishing, which he bore with the utmost Christian fortitude, he died 
on August 14, 1868. His remains lie buried in Blakely. During all the 
weary months of confinement he was never known by word or act to mani- 
fest the least impatience or want of submission. His death bed witnessed 
scenes of exalted Christian resignation and triumnh which proved the 
reality of his religion. 'I would not change the peace of mind which I 
now have to be at ease and dwell in all the splendors of earth' was his 
pious exclamation after obtaining relief from one of his fearful paroxysms 
of suffering. The day preceding his death, he repeated over and over 
again these lines : 

'Farewell vain world, I'm going home. 
My Saviour calls and bids me come.' 

"The following day death fell on him suddenly and he passed away 
almost instantly without a spasm or contortion according to his own 
frequent prayer to which God thus graciously answered. 

"In character Mr. Davis was one of the most amiable and benevolent 
of men, delighting in doing good and making others happy, and stinting 
neither time, money nor measures to accomplish his object. Large-souled 
as well as large bodied, he was above everything that approached to little- 
ness or meanness, and for scores of years preached with that fascinating 
persuasiveness that attracted so many to the fount of everlasting life. 
His oratory was in the highest sense winning, and his delivery was most 
varied, pleasing and fascinating. While he denounced sin he loved the 
sinner, and drew him with melting tenderness to embrace the terms of the 
Gospel. A beautiful speaker, with a well trained mind and fine imaginative 
powers, he was, withal, imbued with an impressive earnestness which gave 
.solemnity and power to his preaching. No disturbance in church or out 
of it ever marred the even tenor of charitable Christian life, for he invar- 
iably retained the goodwill and friendly regard of all, so guiding his life 
as to avoid all personal as well as sectarian controversies. While a strong 
Baptist and sound in the faith he was beloved by Christians of every name 
and highly respected by all classes of the community."

ANDREW JACKSON^ HITCHCOCK (9) was born Feb. 
21, 1813, near Columbus, Ga. He was twice married and was 
the father of eight children, all of whom died in infancy. He 
lost his life in a fire, burning of the James House in Denton, 
Tex., Aug. 25, 1887. 

Andrew Jackson Hitchcock had a most eventful life and 
checkered career. He went to Tex. in 1835 in Captain Jack 
Shackelford's Company, Georgia Battalion of Fannin's Command. 
He was with Fannin and surrendered with him after the battle 
of Colita on Mar. 17, 1836. He was taken to Goliad and con- 
fined in the Old Mission with the rest of the prisoners. On the 
morning of Mar. 27, Sunday, he and the rest of the privates, 
about 319, were marched out upon the pretence of being ex- 
changed. About one half mile from the fort near a brush cattle 
pen they were halted and fired upon by the Mexican Army. 
Finding himself not wounded, hatless and shoeless he scaled the 
brush fence with four or five others, swam the river and made 
his escape. After they had wandered about the country a few 
days they were recaptured, but Hitchcock and one other finally 
made their escape and reached Galveston to learn the war was 
over. Hitchcock returned to Ga., but soon went back to Tex., 
and saw much service in the conflicts with the Indians. In 1839 
he went to Shreveport, La., and accumulated some property 
which he invested in negroes and began farming on Red River.

In 1849 he engaged in a merchandise venture which was of short 
duration, but closed out with some profit. He then bought a 
livery stable in Shreveport, which he ran for several years, buy- 
ing and selling horses and trading generally. In the yellow- 
fever scourge of 1853 he remained in Shreveport, waited upon 
the stricken, was liberal with his money and prodigal with him- 
self. When the Civil War broke out he owned a plantation of 
about twenty-five hundred acres of rich land, well stocked with 
horses, mules, cattle, hogs and sheep and about sixty slaves. His 
horses and mules were pressed into service. He sold his land 
for Confederate money and took his negroes and his family to 
San Antonio. The negroes were freed by the war and he took 
them back to Louisiana where they were raised and turned them 
loose. 

In 1866 he went to Brazil with a view of colonizing there, but 
was not successful in this venture. He went to Brazil a second 
time, but finally concluded the United States was the best place 
for American citizens. He spent his last years in Denton. Tex., 
where he met his tragic death.

his own way in the world. He stopped in Tenn. about a year 
after which he went to Tex. He found irregular employment 
with various surveying parties and in this way helped at differ- 
ent times to locate a large number of claims for settlers. 

He served as a "Minute Man" as often as his presence was 
needed to assist in keeping off the hostile Indians; and finally 
when the climax of trouble with Mexico was reached, moved by 
patriotic ardor and zeal for the cause of liberty, he shouldered

his musket with that devoted band of patriots under Gen. Hous- 
ton to repel the invasion of the Mexican army. He v^as at the 
battle of San Jacinto and thus helped to win Texas independence

valor. Mr. Chiles led an active life, especially in his earlier 
years. In 1856 he was converted and united with the Baptist 
Church at Caldwell, Tex., of which he was soon elected deacon,

MARTHA* DAVIS (22) was born Dec. i, 1818. and married 
Dr. John C. Gilbert Apr. 7, 1835. 

Dr. Gilbert was born Jan. 26, 1814, and died Jan. 29, 1864. 
We find in the Albany Herald the following tribute to the memory 
of Mrs. Gilbert : 

"Mrs. Martha D. Gilbert died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. J. 
M. Tift, of Albany, Ga. ; where she had lived for many years, Jan. 29, 1903. 
Death was due to a general breakmg down from the infirmities of age. 
Mrs. Gilbert was in her 85th year, having turned the 84th milestone of 
life's journey only a few weeks ago. Up to a comparatively recent period 
she continued to enjoy much of the vigor which had characterized her 
whole life, and though long past the allotted threescore years and ten, she 
retained her mental faculties unimpaired, and was not confined to her room 
or even the house. When the final decline set in, however, Mrs. Gilbert 
was forced to take her bed, and through the weary weeks which followed 
she grew gradually but steadily weaker. Fully realizing her condition and 
knowing that for her the journey of life was nearing the end, she turned 
a smiling face to the world, and looked through the eyes of a perfect faith 
into the future. Death had no terrors for her. In life she had walked 
with God ; and no woman ever gave those about her a more beautiful ex- 
ample of the perfect Christian. She had seen what would seem to be more 
than a generous share of sorrow during the years she lived. Loved ones 
were taken from her, and other afflictions came, but above it all she rose 
triumphant with a supreme faith in the Master's wisdom and perfect plan. 
The motto of her life might have been : 'Thy will, not mine, oh. Lord, be 
done.' 'Twas so she lived. 

She passed away as one falling asleep and was conscious to the last, 
recognizing those about her. The group around the deathbed included all 
her surviving children and a number of other relatives. The funeral ser- 
vices were conducted by the Rev. William L. Richards, of the Baptist 
Church of which she had been a consistent and devoted member for many 
years. The remains were deposited in their last resting place in Oakview 
cemetery, Albany, Ga.

MARY MORTON* DAVIS (22) was born Jan. 22, 1845, near 
Indian Springs, Butts Co., Ga. 

(The following sketch of the life and character of Mary M. Davis is the 
merited tribute of a friend, Rev. A. F. Dix.) 

*" Much has been lost that might have proved a great incentive to noble 
deeds, had records been made of the earnest endeavor and faithful service 
of those who had no disposition or were too modest to make such record 
for themselves. This consideration has induced the present writer to give 
permanent form to certain deeds and characteristics of the subject of this 
sketch. 

"First of all we must go back of character and deeds to that twofold na- 
ture in which her character is stamped, and from which her deeds have 
sprung, for if she had not been twice born, she had not been a Christian, 
and for one who knew her to think of Mary Davis apart from her Chris- 
tian life were impossiblle. Her first birth was of Christian parents, her 
father a devoted, energetic Baptist minister, and her mother a patient, lov- 
ing, helpful wife and devoted servant of family and church. The natural 
life of the daughter received thus an altruistic current which needed only 
the imparting of the divine nature, to cause a perpetual flow of Christian 
activity, a 'springing up into everlasting life.' Her second birth, therefore. 



The Davis Family. 45 

as child of the Spirit, from such humanity, came like the words of the Sa- 
vior to the shroud-bound Lazarus : 'Loose him and let him go.' She was 
loosed and let go for a life of imitation of the Master, 'going about doing 
good.' Her education, acquired at Albany, Ga., was such as enabled her to 
help others in overcoming ignorance, and laying in intellectual capital for 
usefulness and enjoyment, as well as to fit her own mind for the discern- 
ment, appreciation and dispensing of truth. 

"Sweetly declining repeated offers of marriage, from men who have 
proven their worth by their success in life, she has chosen, not the life of a 
recluse, but rather that freedom for personal obligation to a single home 
of her own, which permitted her to enter many homes of kindred and 
friends, where her helpfulness forbade the thought of dependence, and en- 
titled her to apply the words of the Master, 'I am among you as he that 
serveth." While serving as teacher in a more public way, she has received 
salary that she might both be independent, and more helpful where kind 
words and watching and sympathy needed to be supplemented by that 
which was purchasable. Many an educational wall of solidity and fair pro- 
portions, has had her bricks in its foundation, and now after forty-two 
years of alternate teaching and resting, nursing and comforting, she is 
handling a school of forty pupils. 

"A monument not to her exclusively, and yet of her, exists in The Wo- 
man's Home, of Montgomery, Ala, an institution benevolent in purpose 
and beneficent in operation, of which she was a charter member, and in the 
founding- and success of which she took an active part. Perhaps no single 
service will be remembered more approvingly by the Master, or more 
admiringly by the people of Albany than the vindication of the doctrine of 
the resurrection, from the aspersions of a lecturer in a public assembly. 
The incident is historical."

REV. JONATHAN BILLINGTON SANDERS* DAVIS 
(23) was born Jan. 25. 1833, was graduated at the State Univer-

Nov. II, 1856; served one year as Prof Belles-Lettres in Male 
College ; taught in several high schools and was oflfered profes- 
sorship in several colleges. He was admitted to the bar of Ga. 
Mar., 1858; and served as a member of the Constitutional Con- 
vention of Ga., in 1865. He was ordained to the Gospel ministry 
in 1863 and has been dubbed "Newnan's Lawyer Preacher." His 
wife is still living (1902), an example of love, purity and fidehty. 

We find in the History of The Baptist Denomination in Georgia 
(Index Company), the following: 

"J- B. S. Davis. — The name of Davis stands very prominently on the list 
of Baptist ministers in Georgia. It has been borne by men of good ability 
and much zeal, who have all gone to their reward, leaving J. B. S. Davis 
their sole representative in the sacred office, though there are many worthy 
gifted men of the name in other professions. * * * The influences of 
religion were around him from his cradle, and seem to have had their 
wanted power, since we find that in 1845, at the early age of twelve years, 
professing conversion, he was baptized into Bethel Church, Heard Co., 
by Rev. Robert Fleming. In Sept., 1852, he entered Mercer University and 
remained there two years, when he repaired to the State University, 
Athens, Ga., and graduating from that institution in 1856. In November 
of that year he married the youngest daughter of Gen. D. M. Bums, of 
Jackson Co. He appears up to this time and perhaps after, to have had no 
inclination to preach, but was engaged in literary pursuits together with the 
study of law. In 1857 we find him occupying the chair of Belles-Letters in 
Cherokee Baptist College, at Cassville, Ga. In 1858, he studied law with 
Hon. Hugh Buchanan, of Newnan, Ga., and was admitted to the bar the 
same year. He seems, however, at that neriod, to have continued the 
practice of law for but two years, as he became principal of Martin Insti- 



48 Genealogy of 

tute, Jackson Co., in 1860-61, and was elected principal of the Newnan Male 
Seminary, 1862-63. Teaching was his favorite work and was renounced 
only on account of failing health. \ He has been practicing law for a num- 
ber of years with great success, and has been employed in some important 
criminal cases, winning causes not a few. His success as a teacher made 
it very difficult for him to leave the profession, and he had flattering pro- 
posals from many colleges and high schools in his own and other Southern 
States. But the Spirit of God was at work in his heart, and his ears were 
open unto Macedonian cry, 'Come over and help us.' In Sept., 1863, he 
was ordained by the Baptist Church at Newnan, to the full work of the 
ministry. Dr. Jesse M. Wood, pastor. The ordination sermon was preached 
by Rev. E. B. Teague, and was filled with good advice. One special warn- 
ing was 'keep out of debt.' As a minister, he is very popular, drawing full 
houses and always securing the attention of his hearers."

mond Co., Ga. Mrs, Davis died in Washington City, D. C, Nov. 
25, 1895. R^v. W. H. Davis died at his residence, Hephzibah, 
Ga., Sept. 18, 1879, and the next day the following notice of his 
death appeared in a local paper : 

DEATH OF REV. W. H. DAVIS. 



A Good Man and Prominent Minister Suddenly Dies Last Night With 

Apoplexy. 

The sad intellitrence of the death of the Rev. William H. Davis, of 
Hephzibah, reached the city this morning. He died very suddenly at his 
home, about 11 o'clock last night, of apoplexy. This very sad occurrence 
casts a gloom over a happy household and quiet community, and calls 
for the fullest sympathy of a hosts of friends throughout the surrounding 
country. 

Mr. Davis was one of the best known and respected citizens of Richmond 
county, and as an honored and prominent minister of the Baptist church 
his influence and popularity were not restricted to the boundary lines of 
any one section of the State or class of people. He concluded a series of 



The Davis Family. 53 

meetings at the Baptist church in Hephzibah last week, with the baptism 
of four persons He also conducted services last Saturday and Sunday at 
Reed's Creek, about twenty miles below, in Burke county, with the addition 
of many more converts to the church, and preached Tuesday and Wednes- 
day at Bushy Creek church, in this county, when he returned home yester- 
day morning. Retiring last night about 9 o'clock, he waked up later and 
complained of a pain in his head. His good wife then made a light, when 
he remarked that he could not see well, and died shortly after. Thus it 
will be seen that after laboring zealously all his life in the Master's vine- 
yard, proving his acceptability to his God and people, and fresh from the 
work of saving souls, he passed peacefully into the heavenly rest. 

Mr. Davis was fifty-three years old at the time of his death, and leaves a 
wife, three daughters and a son. He was dearly loved by his church and 
the people generally, and his place will indeed be difficult to fill. He was 
regarded as one of the most prominent divines of his denomination in the 
State, and was for a number of years one of the principals of the Hephzi- 
bah high school, with the Rev. W. L. Kilpatrick. His funeral will take 
place to-morrow morning at nine o'clock, at the Hephzibah cemetery. 

With the sermons and prayers of the day still warm in his heart and on 
his lips, this minister of God died. Friends had often urged him not to 
undertake so much, but it was his wish to "die in the harness," and it was 
not denied him. 

Mr. Davis was a graduate of Mercer University, and for many years he 
has been an honored and most useful member of the Board of Trustees. 
He had spent a large portion of his life in teaching, and was instrumental 
in building up the Hephzibah high school to a standard not excelled by 
any in the State. 

But it was in his ministerial life that Mr. Davis shone most brightly, and 
many of the counties southwest of our city look upon him as their Baptist 
bishop. 

As pastor, friend, executor and counsellor he will be sadly missed, and 
his place can scarcely be filled. Into that darkened home which his pres- 
ence had always filled with gladness and joy, we pray God to send the 
Comforter, and that He will be a husband and father to the widow and 
orphans. 

Mr. Davis, in business, was always a prudent man, and it is some con- 
solation to know that he has left his family a sufficient competence. 

Of the Hfe and character of Mr. Davis we have the following 
from Cathcart's Baptist Encyclopedia : 

"Rev. William H. Davis was born in Jasper Co., Ga., Aug. 18, 1826, and 
died Sept. 18, 1879, at his residence in Hephzibah. A graduate of Mercer 
University in 1853. he settled in Burke county in 1858, and in course of time 
became one of the most prominent and useful ministers of the Rehobath 
Association. He was often its moderator, and pastor of a number of its 
churches, including Bark Creek, Hopewell, Bottsford and Rocky Creek. 
He was a trustee of Hephzibah high school from its commencement, except 
when a teacher and co-principal of it from 1868 to 1875 inclusive. From 
1878 until his death he was a trustee of Mercer University. He was 
licensed in 1847, and ordained in 1853. Wm. H. Davis was a man of 
classical education, a citizen of untarnished reputation, a teacher of rare 
ability, a Christian of most exemplary deportment, a pastor faithful to his 
obligations, a minister of the gospel surpassed in pulpit power by few, if 
any, in the State. He was clear in the presentation of Scriptural truth, 
logical in his reasoning, and pathetic in his appeal. 

"Mr. Davis was of a commanding appearance, about medium height, 
weighing over two hundred pounds. Of dark complexion, pleasant expres- 
sion of countenance, kind and genial in spirit, and of polished manners."

MARY ALLEN* HITCHCOCK (28) was born in Muscogee 
Co., Ga., Oct. 28, 183 1 ; received her early education at Colum- 
bus, Ga., where she was principally reared and finished at Tus- 
kegee, Ala., under the tutorship of Mrs. Caroline Lee Hentz. 
She married Robert Henry, son of Henry and Nancy King. 

Mr. King was born in Troup Co., Ga., Dec. 9, 1823. He re- 
ceived his education in the common schools, was a fine mathema- 
tician and good scribe. They resided near Midway, Ala., until 
Jan., 1872, when they moved to Tex, and settled near Leesburg 
in Camp Co. The religion of the family is Methodist. Mr. King 
died Oct. 31, 1898. Mrs. Mary A. King, writing from Lees- 
burg Sept. II, 1903, says: 

"Well do I remember my parents running from the Indians when they 
were on the warpath, and crossing the Chattahoochee, at Columbus, Ga., 
on a flat (ferry boat), there being no bridge there then, and looking back 
and seeing the smoke ascending from the buildings to which the Indians 
had applied the torch." * * * * "Neither of my sons have ever 
been arrested nor connected with in any way the marauding element of the 
county, nor was ever sued on a debt which they have contracted. * * * 
My children all own their own homes, worked for them themselves. My 
daughters all own organs, know how to make wax, paper, zephyr and 
feather flowers, painting and drawing, also enlarging pictures ; take their 
charts, cut and make any garment that man, woman or child wears, and if 
you don't believe that they can laundry their table linen and prepare a nice 
meal, well just come to see us. I don't see how I could have raised my 
young children without the help of my daughters, Ida and Annie. They 
have nursed more sick folks, helped to raise more babies, made more baby 
clothes, as well as other garments, than any other two women I ever knew. 
I have four daughters and six sons living; four daughters and two song 
dead ; forty grandchildren living, twelve dead, eleven great-grandchildren 
living and one dead. 

"You can't imagine how proud I am of my children, have never had 
cause to be otherwise, they have proved to be a blessing."

The Goss Family 



THE GOSS FAMILY. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

1. 

We have two versions of the origin of the Goss family, or of the 
founding of the family in this country — both traditional. Dr. 
John D. Garrard, of Birmingham, Ala., now deceased, who was 
a great grandson, of Benjamin Goss, Sr., and who for forty years 
had been making genealogical research regarding his ancestors 
and noting results, said : 

"About 1760, Benjamin Goss, Sr., with two brothers came from Ger- 
many to America. They lived on the Rhine river, near the line, at that 
time, between Germany and France, line between Rhenish Bavaria and 
Alsace. The descendants of one of these brothers are scattered all over 
North Ga., White, Habersham, Cass and other counties. Some have emi- 
grated to other states. The descendants of the other brother are scattered 
pretty well all over the United States." 

In support of this statement Dr. Garrard refers to the fact that 
his mother, Martha B. (Goss) Garrard, a grand-daughter of 
Benjamin Goss, Sr., lived contemporaneously with him in the 
State of Ga., and was intimately associated with members of his 
family, notably her father Benjamin Goss, Jr., third child of 
Benjamin, Sr., who was intimately associated with his father the 
elder Goss for many years and to the time of the latter's death, 
and who doubtless had often heard him speak of his early history. 

Mr. John Preston Goss, of Richmond, Va., who has made the 
genealogy of the Goss family a study for some years, says : 

"As far as I can ascertain the Goss family lived in Va., prior to 1661. 
William Goss lived and died in (now) Kent Co., Va., prior to 1661, and 
left a son named William. Charles and Eddie Goss lived in James City 
Co., Va., in 1682. James Goss lived in Goochland Co., Va., in 1741, now 
Buckingham Co. He is supposed to have been the father of Benjamin 
Goss, who was bom Oct. 3, 1742. * * * *' 

J. P. Goss continuing says : 

(I) 



2 Genealogy of 

"It is not unreasonable to suppose the first William Goss was the grand- 
father of Charles and Eddie Goss, and that Charles or Eddie was the 
father of James Goss, and James Goss the father of Benjamin, the father 
of the Gosses of Ga., and the first Goss who settled in Ga., just prior to 
1800 or soon thereafter." 

Quoting what was said by different members of the Goss fam- 
ily, John P. Goss, further says: 

"I heard my father, John W. Goss, grandson of Benjamin, Sr., say that 
Benjamin was a son by the second marriage of his father, and that he, 
Benjamin, had two half-brothers older than himself that went to North 
Carolina. I think this will account for the two brothers mentioned by Dr. 
Garrard. I will mention that my father said his great grandfather, the 
father of Benjamin, Sr., died in England, having gone there to attend to 
some business, sickened and died there." 

He further says : 

"I have been informed by Mr. H. I. Gause, of Wilmington, Del., who 
has made a very great effort to trace the origin of the family, that they were 
from Germany, and were driven from that country during the persecution 
of the Protestants, and went first to France, where they were known as 
Gosse, and that those who went to England from France, dropped the e, 
leaving the name as it is now found in this country, Goss." 

So much for tradition ; all agree however that the Goss family 
descends from German ancestry. It is a matter of regret that 
we have no record evidence in support of either theory advanced, 
and at this late day it is not probable that such evidence will be 
discovered, many of the records in Va., having been destroyed. 
We have therefore to deal with the situation as we find it. 

It would be a pleasure to trace the ancestry of Benjamin Goss 
as we are able to trace his descendants, but not being able to do 
this we will proceed with the primary object of this undertaking, 
the tracing of his descendants. In this we will use valuable in- 
formation furnished by both Dr. Garrard and Mr. John P. Goss 
and to both of whom we are indebted for their courteous and 
generous efforts to aid us. 

The earliest reliable information we have of Benjamin Goss is 
found in some of the records of Va. He enlisted in Maj. An- 
drew Lewis' Company when twenty years old, was a planter, 5 ft. 
8^ in. high. (See ist Vol. Va. Historical Papers, page 382, now 
in the State Library, Richmond, Va.) He also received a land 
grant for services in the Indian and French war, serving in Col. 
Wm. Boyd's Regiment, 2d Va. (See Book of Grants Indian and 
French war now in the land office in the Capitol of Va). 



The Goss Family. 3 

Benjamin Goss and Elizabeth Hamilton were united in mar- 
riage April 14, 1764. Miss Hamilton was of Scotch descent and 
was born May 12, 1743. She was a cousin of Alexander Hamil- 
ton, who fought a duel with and was killed by Aaron Burr. 
They resided in Buckingham Co., Va., until about 1803, when 
they with most of their children moved to the State of Ga., and 
settled in Elbert Co., where they spent the remainder of their 
lives. 

Benjamin Goss died Nov. 11, 1813, and Mrs. Goss died May 
3, 1815. They reared a large and interesting family of sons and 
daughters and their descendants are numerous, useful and influ- 
ential. Children:

The Old Dictionary. 

There is a very old English dictionary in the possession of 
Judge Horatio James Goss, of Hartwell, Ga., a great-grand-son 
of Benjamin Goss, that was used for the purpose of keeping the 
family record of the latter, the entries being made on the margin 
of the leaves, with little reference to order, and are scattered all 
along through the book. The old book is tattered and torn, the 
front and back gone leaving no trace of date of publication. It 
was published at a time when the letter s was formed as the 
modern letter f. At some time it has been covered with a coarse 
domestic plaid, supposed to have been spun and woven by hand 
and from cotton picked from the seed by hand and before the days 
of the Whitney or other cotton gin. The old cover is also 
tattered and torn as evidenced by the accompanying illustration of 
the old book, a print from an engraving procured by the writer

REV. HORATIO JAMES- GOSS (i) was born in Va., Fri-

from Elburt Co., Ga., to Hart Co., and lived there until his death 
and was buried in his garden beside his first wife. 

In Campbell's Georgia Baptists we find the following sketch of 
the life of Rev. Horatio James Goss : 

"It is matter of deep regret that so little can be gathered of the life and 
labors of the excellent man, whose name stands at the head of this brief 
notice. 'What is life? It is even as a shadow that appeareth for a little 
while and that vanishes away.' But his name ought to be preserved if for

no other reason, because he was the father of four excellent and useful 
ministers of the Gospel, viz: Benjamin, Isham H., William R. and 
Horatio James, Jr. He was for years one of the most prominent citizens 
of Elbert County, Georgia, and for twenty years was deacon and clerk of 
Sardis Church. Late in life he was licensed to preach, and though not 
fluent in speech, his great weight of character rendered impressive and 
profitable whatever he said, for he always spoke according to the divine 
oracles. He was remarkable for punctuality in all his religious and secular 
engagements. He used the office of deacon well and was thoroughly 
grounded and settled in the faith and practice inculcated in the New Testa- 
ment. He believed in ministerial support, not as a charity, but as a duty, 
and ever proved his faith by his works, in that he invariably paid his pastor 
liberally and punctually, and prompted all around him to do the same. He 
departed in peace in 1851, and was supposed to be about sixty-five years 
of age*. How greatly hath God honored him in having called four of his 
sons to the highest sphere of usefulness assigned to mortals."

MARTHA BOOKERS GOSS (4) was born Oct. 12, 1805, in 
Wilkes Co., Ga., not many years after her parents had moved 
from Va. She was about five years old when the family moved 
to Newton Co., Ga. In Mar., 1824, she was baptized by Elder 
Jonathan Nicholson and received into the Liberty Baptist Church, 
near Newborn. In Nov. of the same year, she was married to 
Hiram Garrard, of Putnam Co., Ga., and moved with him to 
Newton Co. in Dec. 1826. Mr. Garrard with his family moved 
to Montgomery Co., Ala., in Dec, 1852. Mrs. Garrard died 
Apr. 30, 1880, aged 74 years, 6 months and eighteen days. One 
of her last expressions was, "Glorious hope ! Eternal joy." Hiram 
Garrard, her husband, descended from a long line of prominent 
ancestry. Their son, Dr. John D. Garrard, furnished the follow- 
ing account of the Garrard family. 

"According to an old history of the Huguenots of France, the Garrard 
family of France was founded by a direct descendant of Prince Eberhard 
of Wertemburg, Germany, known as the "Good Prince" (or King). This

prince lived over five hundred years ago — this 1901. The Garrards were 
all Huguenots and so much opposed to the Catholic rule of the government 
that they had, by persecution, to leave France. From time to time, they 
went to different countries. Most of them to England. Peter Garrard, 
with his family, was probably the last to leave France, as shown by the 
records of history. He left France after the Revocation of the Edict of 
Nantes, Oct., 1685. His naturalization as a British subject took place May 
8. 1687, in the ninth year of the reign of William HI. Says the historian. 
'It is doubtless this branch which was transplanted in Va.' Peter Garrard 
had two small sons with him when he emigrated to England. These sons 
grew up and married in England, where they spent the remainder of their 
lives." "Col. William Garrard, of Stafford Co., Va., and his brother J. 
Garrard (who changed his name to Gerard) were sons of one of Peter 
Garrard's sons, and Robert, John and Jacob Garrard, who settled in the 
Carolinas and in Ga., were children of the other son of Peter Garrard." 

"Col. William Garrard came to America about 1740 and prob- 
ably his brother, J. Garrard, came at the same time. Col. Wil- 
liam Garrard was the father of Gen. James Garrard, of Ky. 
Robert, John and James Garrard, three brothers, came together 
from England to Va., about 1750. They remained in Stafford 
Co. a few years and then came on further south. Jacob settled 
in North Carolina and Robert in South Carolina. John married 
Mary Bolt, of South Carolina, and remained in that state some 
years, when he came on to Ga.. where he lived some years before 
he bought land and finally settled in Wilkes County in 1773 or 
about that date. He was born about 1725 and died in the Spring 
of 1807. John Garrard's sons were Jacob and Robert, his daugh- 
ters were Frances, who married a man named Ludlow, and 
one. name not remembered. Jacob Garrard, son of John Gar- 
rard, of Wilkes Co., Ga., was born in 1762. About 1780 he mar- 
ried Elizabeth Barron, of Warren Co., Ga., a daughter of Capt. 
William Barron, and Rudy Barron (Davis). She was born in 
Waterford Co., Ireland, about 1766, and with her parents came to 
America about Dec, 1766. 

Jacob Garrard, son of John Garrard, as mentioned heretofore, 
moved from Wilkes Co. to Putnam Co., Ga., it then being a 
part of Baldwin Co., in Dec, 1805, when his son Hiram was not 
quite six years old. Jacob died in 1823 and his widow in 1828. 
Only three of their children left any heirs, viz. : William Garrard, 
of Putnam Co., Ga., Zilla Garrard, who married the Rev. James 
M. Rockmore, and Hiram Garrard who married Martha B. Goss. 
Hiram Garrard was born Mar. 24, 1800, and died Nov. 7, 1871. 
At about 17 years of age he was baptized by Rev. Richard Pace.

ELDER BENAJAH^* GOSS (4) was born in Wilkes Co., Ga , 
in 1809 and married Mariah Darnell, Elder William Lacy offi- 
ciating. Miss Darnell was born June 16, 1813, and is still living 
(Dec. 1903) and resides at Lineville, Ala., ninety years old and 
in good health for a person of her age. We find in Bledsoe's his- 
tory of the Liberty Baptist Association, the following sketch of 
the life and character of Rev. Benajah Goss : 

"Elder Benajah Goss, died at his residence at Union Springs, Ala., on the 
5th day of January last (1866), in the fifty-seventh year of his age. He was 
baptized into the fellowship of the Liberty Baptist Church in 1827, and was 
married to Miss Mariah Darnell, of Morgan Co., Ga., in 1830, (Feb. 4). 
He was licensed in 1836, ordained to the full ministry in Bethel Church, 
Chambers Co., Ala., in 1841, by Elders Jesse Moon, John B. Humphries 
and William Lacy. He was missionary of the Liberty Association and 
traveled and preached for several years to the destitute, principally in 
Randolph Co., Ala., where several churches were organized and built up 
under his ministry. 

"As a preacher, his discourses were characterized by sound doctrine and 
much practical godliness, with great earnestness and anxiety for the salva- 
tion of souls. Evidently much good was accomplished through his instru- 
mentality, * * * *. He has gone to his reward, and while he rests from 
his labors, his work will follow after him. He has left us the rich legacy 
of Christian example, and testimony to the truth as it in Jesus. He has 
shown us how to live and how to die. In his last hours of suffering he 
spoke to his Christian wife of receiving blessings from the Lord — such 
resignation and Christian fortitude are seldom witnessed as he evidenced to 
the last. And his voice is stilled in death, his body relieved from suffering, 
and his spirit is at rest with God. Wherefore, 

"Resolved, That in the death of Elder Benajah Goss, we feel the cause 
has lost a zealous defender and our church a devoted advocate, and the 
community a model of Christian piety. 

"Resolved, Whilest we mourn the loss of our brother, we humbly bow 
to the will of God, who worketh all things together for good to them who 
love the Lord. 

"Resolved, That we deeply sympathize with his bereaved and afflicted 
companion, and hereby extend to her our heartfelt condolence and sym- 
pathy with the assurance that she will ever be remembered in our prayers 
at the throne of grace." A. J. Slaughter, Ch. Clerk. 

Apr. 4, 1868. 

The following are merited tributes to the aged and surviving 
companion of Rev. Benajah Goss:

Mrs. M. B. Goss is now a resident of Lineville, Ala. She is very old 
and infirm being afflicted with bHndness. 

She has been living in this community for several years, and has by her 
consecrated Christian life and good example, won many friends. Every 
one who knows Aunt Goss (as she is familiarly called) loves her. 

She is a valiant soldier of the cross always ready to speak for her Lord 
and Master. Although declining in health, her love for Christ and His 
cause has not relaxed. 

She is a member of the Ladies' Aid Society, and while she is providen- 
tially hindered from meeting with us, we feel encouraged to know that we 
have the prayers of this good Christian mother. 

May the Lord bless, sustain and comfort this mother in Israel through 
her declining years, is our prayer. Respectfully submitted. 

The Ladies Aid Society. 

Mrs. M. B. Goss, relict of Rev. Benajah Goss, is yet alive — and is living 
at Lineville, Clay Co., Ala. 

She was born June i6. 1813, became the wife of Rev. B. Goss in the 
seventeenth year of her life, which happy union lasted until the time of 
his death on Jan. 5, 1867. Husband and wife were devoted to each other. 
It seemed a delight for him to have her accompany him on his mission 
tours, and she rejoiced to be his companion in the Lord's service. No 
children resulting from this union, the husband seemed prone to pet his 
wife as his child, while trusting her as his companion. 

During the recent years, since it has been my pleasure to be her pastor, 
she seems to live largely in the past. Her husband, his ministry, his life, 
his devotion, is the topic of her conversation. The good meetings of long 
ago, the old time religion, the sweet experiences of the past, seem to 
invigorate and prolong her life. 

Her sight is growing very dim, and her strength is ebbing day by day; 
very soon she will go to join the husband in glory, but while lingering 
here her desire seems to be to make the world brighter with her living. 

No doubt her companionship was a benediction to her husband's ministry 
and life. The seeds of truth sown by him during his ministry have doubt- 
less been watered with her prayers for these many years. 

These are glimpses from her life and conversation. Written by her 
pastor. J. R. Stodghill,

In Campbell's Georgia Baptists we find the following sketch of 
the life of Rev. Benjamin Goss: 



The Goss Family. 19 

"Rev. Benjamin Goss was reared to industrial habits, working on the 
farm from his early boyhood; had scarcely any advantages of education, 
was quite moral, frugal and industrious. When quite young he was awak- 
ened to the importance of religion, and in a still and quiet manner sought 
the Lord and found Him, as he thought, a precious Saviour, and enjoyed 
himself much in his private meditations upon God's goodness. He delighted 
in visiting the house of God, and in hearing the gospel preached, but his 
timidity and backwardness prevented him from opening his mind to any 
one. 

"At length, after a lapse of several years, he was conversed with on the 
subject of his Christian experience and was induced to relate it fully. This 
inspired him with a little more confidence, and he ventured tremblingly to 
apply to the church for baptism. About 1838 he was received into the 
fellowship of Vans Creek Church, at Ruckersville, and was baptized by 
Rev. Asa Chandler. Mr. Goss soon became a zealous and active member 
of the church, would pray in public when called on, and in a few years 
was chosen and ordained a deacon. He was ever active and zealous in his 
religious duties, became a leader in prayer meetings, in which he would 
sometimes lecture or exhort with great power. The conviction was soon 
forced on the minds of his brethren that he was designed of God to labor 
in a higher sphere, which corresponding with his own impressions, he was 
called to the work of the ministry. He would become so excited and ani- 
mated when speaking of God's goodness and love, that he seldom failed to 
impress those who heard him. He was ordained about the year 1854, and 
for ten successive years he labored in preaching Christ to the people with 
great earnest zeal and simplicity. His discourses were uniformly short 
and well-timed as to the surroundings, and were never known to worry his 
audience, but generally left the impression with the most fastidious that, 
though the speaker was not a great preacher, nor a learned man, yet he 
was a good man and was doubtless in earnest in all his unaffected and 
simple appeals to the heart and conscience of his hearers. He was pastor 
of Rock Branch Church several years, and was greatly respected and 
beloved by his flock and congregation. At the time of his death he was 
also pastor of Bethel Church. He preached his last sermon on Sunday 
(preceding his death on the following Friday) at a school house a few 
miles from his residence, during the delivery of which he was observed to 
be unusually solemn. His disease was brain fever, which produced delir- 
ium, so that he was deprived of the privilege of leaving dying testimony 
to the religion which he had illustrated so well in life. Eternity will 
doubtless disclose that he, and such as he, accomplished more real good in 
life and by example they left, than many brilliant men whose eloquence 
has entranced thousands, but whose lives lacked the savor of real godli- 
ness."

REV. ISHAM HAMILTON^^ GOSS (12) was born Dec. 10, 
1816, in Elbert Co., Ga., was prepared for college in the local 



20 Genealogy of 

schools, such as the country afforded at that time, and finished his 
education at college in Knoxville, Tenn, He married Mary Eliz- 
abeth Gordon, a sister of the second wife of his brother Benja- 
min, Mar. 5, 1840, the Rev. Asa Chandler officiating. Miss Gor- 
don was born Feb., 1818, and was a member of the Presbyterian 
Church, but joined the Baptist Church after her marriage. Rev. 
Isham Hamilton Goss was ordained to the Baptist Ministry Apr. 
15, 1842. 

Mrs. Ella Craft, of Hartwell, Ga., a daughter of Rev. Isham H. 
Goss, writes: 

"My father grew up on the farm, attending such schools as the county 
afforded. When he expressed a desire for higher education, his father 
sent him to Knoxville, East Tennessee College, where he remained two 
years. Soon after his return from college, he was married to Mary Eliza- 
beth Gordon, of Hart Co., Ga. The Gordons were Associate Reformed 
Presbyterians and had sent their daughters Mary and Flora to what is 
now known as Duewest, S. C, Female College. Mary, my mother, joined 
the Baptist Church after she had been married eight years, and after 
bright conversion, having been convinced from reading the Bible its doc- 
trines are according to the Scriptures. My father was most happily con- 
verted before he was married; joined the church and felt called to 
preach. He was ordained to preach after marriage at Russelville, Elbert 
Co., Ga. He was a useful minister of the Baptist denomination for forty 
years, never missed an appointment if it was possible for him to be there; 
always feeling 'woe is me if I preach not the Gospel.' 

"My mother made a good preacher's wife in looking well to the house- 
hold and carrying on things orderly when he was from home preaching, and 
seeing that work on the farm went on (slavery times) as if he were 
there. My father kept up family prayer of nights and mornings and my 
mother made ready and order for that always. A good helpful wife 
makes such not seem a burthen but a looked-for and pleasant part of life's 
program." 

We find the following sketch in the History of Georgia Bap- 
tists: (Index Co.) 

"Isham H. Goss during boyhood was solemn, moral and obedient to 
his father, having lost his mother when quite small. He had, however, 
the care of a kind step-mother, and his early training was thoroughly 
religious. * * * In his twenty-first year, in 1837, he journeyed on 
horseback to Knoxville, Tenn., and entered r.ast Tennessee College, where 
he remained two years diligently pursuing the prescribed course of studies 
and reading various works of an instructive character. In Mar., 1839, he 
started home, traveling by public hack through S. C, that being ante- 
cedent to the days of railroads, and intending to return to college and 
study with a view to practicing law, but Providence ordered otherwise. 
Attending a general meeting of interest turned his attention most seriously 
to the subject of his soul's salvation and after several weeks of pungent 
conviction God was pleased by regeneration to light up his soul with hope 
of salvation on the i6th of April, 1839, in a manner gloriously overwhelm- 
ing. Immediately he felt it his duty to tell others of the preciousness of 
the Saviour he had found. With him old things did indeed pass away, 



The Goss Family. 21 

and all things became new and it now grew to be his great desire to 
announce to others the grace of God in Christ Jesus. * * * i^ July, 
1839, he united with the Baptist Church at Sardis, being baptized in Cedar 
Creek by Rev. Asa Chandler on the 6th day of July. He soon began to 
take part in the public services of the church and even to preach when 
opportunity offered, but was not licensed until 15th of August, 1840. 
He was ordained on 15th of April, 1842. Asa Chandler, B. B. Butler, 
Philip Mathews and Miles B. Jones acting as presbyters. * * * por 
forty years Mr. Goss was actively engaged in the ministry, most of the 
time as the regular pastor of churches, but part of the time as an evan- 
gelist and missionary, for ten years ser\qng Sarepta Association as such. 
He baptized a great many persons and the savor of his good influence has 
been felt wherever he has gone. In all these years God has sustained 
him mentally, bodily and financially; has permitted him to see eight chil- 
dren grow up and join the church and has given him the unbroken com- 
panionship of the wife of his bosom. * * *"

"William Raburn Goss had three brothers, Benjamin, Isham H. and Ho- 
ratio J. Goss, Jr., whose labors in the ministry were most signally ap- 
proved of God. After penitent confession of his sins to God and faith in 
Jesus as the Saviour of sinners, he united with the church at Vans Creek 
and was baptized by Rev. Asa Chandler in July 1839. Very soon he began 
to take a deep interest in the cause of Christ and a desire awoke in his 
bosom to warn his fellow men to lay hold on eternal life. In 1840 he 
was licensed by his church to preach and in 1845 was ordained at the 
request of Vans Creek church to the full functions of the ministry. After 
his ordination, though working on his farm and attending to it, he supplied

the churches as their pastor regularly each Sunday in the month within 
the bounds of the Serepta Association. 

"In 1848 he moved to Franklin Co., Ga., and remained there for ten 
years. During this time his labors were blessed of the Lord, and accessions 
were made to his churches each year. In 1859 he settled in Franklin 
Co., Ala., but from strong convictions of duty and the desire of his 
brethren, after four years, he returned to his former field of labor. In 
1870, Grove Level, one of the churches which he then supplied, enjoyed a 
most wonderful manifestation of the presence of the Holy Spirit. Rev. 
I. H. Goss, his brother aided at that meeting and about one hundred were 
added to the church before its close. One day during the meeting, a 
beautiful day in August, fifty-three were baptized. 

"Rev. W. R. Goss spent most of his ministerial life serving churches in 
the counties of Elbert, Banks and Jackson. He was a man of medium 
size, dark hair originally and blue eyes. As a preacher, though not elo- 
quent, he was earnest and his congregations heard him with pleasure and 
profit. In early life his educational advantages were limited but making 
the Bible his text book by close and prayerful study of its pages he made 
a most useful minister of the Gospel." 

The Rev. William R. Goss, was thrice married. His first wife 
was Priscilla Evenson, they were married Aug. 5, 1841, the mar- 
riage ceremony being performed by his brother, Rev. Isham H. 
Goss. Miss Evenson was born Apr. 25, 1825. Of this marriage 
there were born four children. 

Mr. Goss' second wife was Elizabeth Ann Mitchell, of Jackson 
Co., Ga. They were married June 22, 1847. ^^^^s Mitchell was 
born Apr. 10, 1821. She was a member of Crooked Creek Bap- 
tist Church, Jackson Co., Ga. She lived to see her children 
grown and all married but one. She died the death of a Christian 
July 29, 1877 ; was a noble Christian woman, loved by every one 
that knew her. As a wife she was ever a faithful, loving helpmeet 
to her husband ; as a mother she was always kind, tender and 
true, and was a loving mother to the little girl that had fallen to 
her care. W. R. Goss' third wife was Mrs. Lucy F. Chandler of 
Madison Co., Ga., She was a member of the Baptist Church and 
made him a good, kind wife, and was a good step-mother. She 
bore no children. She survives him and resides, this 1902, at 
Planter, Ga..
