HIGHWAY MARKERS IN PICKENS COUNTY, ALABAMA 

The present northern boundry of Pickens County is the original boundry 
seperating the Choctaw and Chickasaw Indian Tribes, The iSreeks had a 
town on the site of Tuscaloosa, within the Choctaw Territory and con- 
tested the Choctaw title to this land and in 1800 defeated the Choctaws 
in a battle between the Tombigbee river and the present State boundry, 
one mile south of Pickenville. The Choctaws refused to give up their 
Claims and held the territory until 1816 when they ceded the land east 
of the Tombigbee River to the United States. Now Highway Markers show 
the locations. 
CHOCTAW NATION ; 

These were the ancestral hunting grounds of the Choctaws ceded in 1816.

ORIGIN OF PICKENS COUNTY, AI.ABMA 

When Alabama became a State in 1819 vihat is now Pickens -County /;as in 

Tuscaloosa County, but the settlement on the Tombigbee River was too fax 

from the county seat of Tuscaloosa County, so a new county was formed 

December 19, 1820 and named PICKENS in homor of ISRAEL PICKENS, the 

third Governor of Alabajna, The first seat of Pickens County was in the 

home of Jacob Dansby, who lived where Pickensville now is, with three 

electoral precincts, one at the home of Mr, Mullins, another at the 

home of James Heflin, in t-he Garden community and the third at Ezeckial 

Nash's 

The first settlers were mainly from South Carolina, down the trail from Ditto's Landi 

Ditto's Landing on the Tennessee River to "Mud Toa'u'M ater named Elj't.cn. 

Even more settlers came in, with the seccion of the Choctaws land in 

1830, causing some of the earlier settlers to move on west, a.s they had 

only "squatter's rights" to the land in Pickens County, 

Pickensville was the first county seat ^-fhen Government gave 80 acres in 

1830 to establish a county seat. The county seat was moved to Carrollton 

later. Carrollton was incorporated as a town Januai-y 13, 1831, wii,h 

Robert Jemison as member of the Board of Cmmmission to locate and l3.y off 

the town. 

The Acts of the State in 1821 established an election precinct at the house 

of Mr,, Cox, near Cole Fire Creek. 

December 20, 1824 Bayette County v;as established from part of Pickens and Tu 

Tuscaloosa and Marion Counties, In 1832 two Beats on the west side of the 

County, were added from Greene County, 



In 1819, Rev. Lorenzo Dow, and Itinerant preacher, came into what was 
later - Reform, Pickens County, to try and convert the many vandals and 
saloons there. He had no result at all in his undertaking, and aa he 
was leaving someone was suggesting a name for the town - he yelled back: 
"Name it REFORM" and left! 

The first white settler in Pickens County was Josiah Tilly, and Indian 
Trader who came into Tuscaloosa in 1817, to the east bank of the Tombigbee 
River, half a mile above the rpesent town of Pickensville . He is said to 
have been born in North Carolina or Tennessee and married in Tuscaloosa 
County to a daughter of Patrick Scott, who came to Pickens County from 
South Carolina. Tilly is said to have gone to Texas with the Choctaws. 

The second settler was t|onothan ^ork, who lived on the road from 
Pickensville to Colimibus, Mississippi. His daughter, Catherine, was the 
first child born in Pickens County. 

The first male child born in Pickens County was Edward L. , son of 
Stephen P. Doss, about 1818. 

The first marriage in the county was that of Elizabeth Cox and Lewis 
Christopher in February 1820, she being the daughter of Daniel Cox. 

The first Methodist preacher in the community was Rev. Ebenezer Hearn, 
who came in from Tennessee in 1819. 

Rev. Charles Stewart, a Baptist preacher was preaching at the Big Creek 
Baptist in the year 1823. 

The early Presbyterian preachers were not permanent ones, though several 
of that faith preached there in the early days.

From the family names - Thristam & Matthew Cother Thomas, there must be 

a descent from the THOMAS family of Maryland, thru George Thomas who 

married Elizabeth Cother. George Thomas said to have lived a short 

time in Christain County, Kentuck, then to Warren County, Tennessee, 

No record that he owned land in Wythe County, Virginia and the early

THE FACE IN THE WINDOW 

The Courthouse in Carrollton, seat of Pickens County, Alabama was 
burned on Tuesday, November 16, 1876. A negro - Henry Wells was 
arrested, two years after as being the one who started the firs. In 
the meantime a new courthouse had been built. 

Henry was, also suspected of other crimes and to save him from the 
enraged mob, he was hidden in the garret of the new Courthouse, Just 
at that time an electrical storm occurred and as Henry was looking down 
at the mob, his face was stamped on the window by the electricity. 

Through all the years, in spite of hail and storm, which destroyed 
all other windows in the Courthouse, that particular pane, with the 
striking image, remains. 

The glass has been scribbed with soap and gasoline as well as other 
means, but still that pane has met all tests and to this day, (August 
1959) the face remains unchanged. 

Henry died in jail from effects of wounds he received as he once 
tried to escape.

METHODIST CHURCH OF ALICE, PICKENS COUNTY, ALABAMA 

The church was organized in 1879, during the ministry of the Rev. 
W. M, Ripper, 5 miles south of Aliceville, a few hundred yards east 
of the present Aliceville-Eutaw Highway. The church was named the 
Qnory's Chapel and was on the Carrollton demominational circuit. 

Another church, on the same Circuit, was located at Olney, eight 
miles east of the present site of Aliceville, 

In 1900 when the Rev. John W, Norton was pastor of the Circuit 
the two churches were torn down, and the lumber taken to Bethany, 
six mile southeast of Aliceville and a new church was constructed 
there. There had already been a Methodist congregation in Bethany, 
so the combined congregation formed a flourishing church which went 
by the name of Bethany and remained in the community for about six 
years. 

In 1906, when the Rev. Samuel N. Burn was pastor, the church building 
in Bethany was sold and the congregation moved into Aliceville and 
constructed a new church. On Sunday, the 3rd one in May 1909, Bishop 
H. C. Morrison preached the dedicatory sermon in the new church in 
Aliceville, In 192^, the Aliceville Methodist Church was taken into 
the Carrollton Circuit and made a full-time station. During the 
pastorate of the Rev. J. E, Jenkins, 1923-192? an annex was added for 
Sunday School rooms. 

In 1944 a building fund was started for a new church building and 
manse. The first service in November 1948, was held in the new build- 
ing which cost approximately $45,00.000

tion descending from one who was present at the organization of the 
Church one hundred years before. 

Rev. John K. Spence who was a well known Presbyterian Minister of 
Alabama, was at one time an Elder of this' church. He being the 
only person who had once belonged to this church - to enter the 
ministry. The early churches were a sort of court - where grievance 
of its members were threshed out. 

As was custom in the South, before the War between the States, quite 
a number of slaves were regular members of this church. In later 
years, the younger generation preferred an organization of their owr

This church is said to have been the oldest congregatj.on in Pickens 
County and was organized in 1823, at the Garden (Enon) , then moved 
to Aliceville.

Jacob Crocker in 1829.

Rev, Charles Stewart as pastor; first Deacons were Notley Gore and 
Dempsey White, In two months, the congregation had increased to 
twenty members - one - " a black woman, Melly". At that date, slaves 
were given the opportunity to attach themselves to that church. In 
the next ten years, there were thirty-four black members, out of the 
vd-iole list of one hundred and sixty four. In 1848 it was agreed to 
build a separate building for the black population. This church was 
the scene of a break in the Baptist denomination, in 1837, the 
Missionary Baptists continued in this church and the Hardshell Baptist 
established a new organization. 

From the Big Creek Church, a Baptist church was organized in Carrollton 
in 1846 by Mrs. Candace Bostick, Mrs. Caroline Sherrod, Matthews Lyons 
and others.

The seats were arranged so the slaves would have a place to sit in 
the church.

of the early members in 1839 and remained a member until his death, 
October 15, 1842, at the age of 62 years and his body was the first 
to be buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. One corner of this cemetery 
was reserved for the slaves.

when Thomas W, Falls was elected to serve in that place. William 
Archibald was appointed to attend the Presbytery in Tuscaloosa, 
October 2, 1838. Rev. James Somerville succeeded Rev. Williams as 
pastor of this Church in 1850, where he served faithfully for twenty- 
nine years. Rev. Somverville was a great-uncle of Mrs. T. C. Border

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF REFORM, PICKENS COUNTY, ALABAMA 

The SESSION BOOK of the early records of this church v-ins lost, so 

this record was given by some of the pioneers of this church. 

March 20, 1898. Rev. B. F. Bedenger, Evangelist of the Tuscaloosa 

Presbytery, organized the church at Reform, Alabama with fifteen 

charter members. As the original list was lost, the following is 

a partial list: 

Mr. & Mrs. G, A. Howell Miss Lizzie Gibson Mrs. G. R. Langdon 
Mr, & Mrs. J. H. Cummings Miss Lettie Gibson Mrs. Mollie Dillard 
Mr. & Mrs. J. W. Rowe Mr. J. C. Rowe Mr. Friday 

The children and grandchildren of the above are still doing the work 

their parents began. 

This Presbyterian Church was the first church built in Reform, Alabama. 

The Mobile and Ohio Railroad had just been completed and v-'ac; the 

first railroad in Pickens County. Soon several other Presbyterian 

families moved into and near Reform, who were: 

Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Bouchillon Mr. & Mrs. J. W. Jones & family 

Mr. & Mrs . T. A. Rose Mrs. T. M. Xiesler 

Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Spain Mrs. C. C. Xiesler " " 

Mr. Purnell and family Mrs. S. H. Bouchillon " " 

The preaching services, at first, were held in the school house until 

the fall of 1899, when the church building was completed. This is 

a nice frame building, in the center of the business part of town. 

The church lot was given by Mrs, J. B. Graham, one of the heirs of the 

Gibson estate. 

Mr. J, B. Graham was not a member of this church but attended the 

services and helped support it.

■70- 



FROM "ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY" VOL. #18 PAGE #605 

"The first relief Act by Alabama in aid of former Confederate soldiers, 
who were maimed during the War between the States, Artificial limbs 
were furnished by the State of Alabama to maimed soldiers and sailors 
who served between 1861-1865 together with a statement of the facts 
leading to Legislation. The Acts of Legislature required such limbs 
be named; list of names of the person to whom such aid was extended. 
This was shown by counties for the years 186 7 to 1879, both inclusive, 
applicants to furnish sworn statement with the Probate Judge of his 
county, setting forth his age, place of residence, what Company-Regiment 
or Battalion he served; where and how he was woxonded; by what surgeon 
or surgeons when the amputation was made and that he was an actual 
resident of the county on February 19, 1867 - also that it was his 
intention to remain in that county indefinitely; statement to be sworn 
to before the Probate Judge and be accompanied by an affidavit from 
someone that the facts were true. When the limb was delivered, the 
applicant had to sign a receipt that he had received the limb and that 
it was satisfactory in every wayo For an arm - $50.00, for a leg - 
$75.00 and blinded - $150.00. In 1878 the plan was changed - a flat 
sum of $75.00 was to be paid every cripple who hby some means or reason - 
could not wear such a leg or arm and who had not received any previous 
aid. On totally blind was to receive $150.00, $70.00 for loss of a 
leg above the knee and $5 0.00 for a leg below the knee. If mutilation 
was of such a nature, that no limb could be used, they to be paid 
$100.00" Approved by the Acts of Alabama February 19, 1867,

Dudley Hargrove was an unlicensed Methodist Preacher and became a 
historic character in 1819 when he went from the Tuscaloosa Quarterly 
Conference to the Tennessee Conference at Nashville, October 1, 1819. 
He was one among others expected to be ordained as Ministers but this 
Conference was pronounced in its standing against slavery and these 
men were slave owners, so they were rejected. Five years afterward, 
Mr. Taylor, one of these men was taken into the Conference, but Dudley 
Hargrove did not live to receive this correction. Family data states 
that Dudley Hargrove killed 23 bears in Pickens Coiinty, also that he 
served in the Revolutionary War, though nothing has been found to that 
effect. In the Methodist records, it is stated that all of Dudley 
Hargrove's children - except Benjamin came to Pickens County with him 
from Georgia.

Rev. George M. Lyles of Pickens County, Alabama delivered a message 
to the Baptist Delegates of the Union Baptist Association, held at 
Big Creek Church in 1863. This Association was composed of churches 
in Lamar, Greene, Hale and Pickens Counties in Alabama. In this 
message he referred to the (then) War Betv/een the States: 

"First, in a National Point of View, we were at one time the 
happiest nation on earth, but not content with our position in life, 
we have become jealous of each other's rights and interests. . . . 
in a Nation sense, we have sinned as a Nation, God has seen proper 
to lay the chastening rod, by suffering to come upon us — one of the 
most bloody wars that American History has ever known." 
Rev. Lyles was born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1819, He 
married in South Carolina and came to Alabama about 1840 and bought 
a farm near the present Liberty High School. 

He was twice married and had thirteen children, in two sets. Two 
of the second set--Georgia Bullock and B, F. Lyles were living in 
1958. He preached all over Pickens County for forty years and in one 
year was paid only $3.75o 

He also was partner with Mr, Stringfellow in a store in Pickensville 
in 1870. He also worked hard on his farm. He would have his dinner 
sent to him in the field and read his Bible as he ate. 
He trained one negro man to be a great preacher. 
Peace to his memory.

JAMES ALSON MCKINSTRY, COMPANY "D " , 42ncl ALABAI'lA INFANTRY, C.S.A. 

Discharged April 1365, "AVE ET VALE". 

To the Editor of the Birmingham Nev;s : 

James Alston McKinstry, who died a few days ago in Birmingham, 
Alabama was, at the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861, an ideal 
exponant of the South, which, in the fashion of miracles, transformed 
boys into men-inspired with heroic purpose. Among the first of the 
cadets of LaGrange Military Academy to volunteer in the Army of the 
Southern Confederacy, it fc;... to the lot of this regiment to re-enact 
at the battle of Corinth, Mississippi, a tragedy more fatally mis- 
directed than the "Charge of the Six Hundred at Balaklave." Clad 
only in shirt and trousers and barefooted, th^: t they might more 
readily climb up the steep earthwork--of the fourteen Vv'ho escaped 
the carnage of the assault and who reached the j.nterior of the Fort, 
this gallant lad-alone-survived the finishing volley of the garrison. 
With minnie-ball through his shoulder, another through an arm and a 
third through the muscle of the thigh, refused to surrender; he found 
shelter in the trench with his dead comrades, whence with the fall of 
darkness-he made his escape. 

At college, Jim McKinstry was a general favorite and noted as adept 
in mathamtics. He had not his equal, even in the advance classes and 
later in life, had he but aspired to fame, he could have found a place 
in one of our great universities, in this first of the sciences. With 
that fatal and inexplicable modesty so often characteristic of a genius, 
he chose the path of life. 

"Far from the maddening crow's ignoble strife, he trod, ever in 
sympathy with his fellows and ever true to his convictions. Requiescat 
in pace." So may he swwetly sleep that death will seem a dream of life 
which itself is a dream. 

Signed: John Allen Wyeth, New York City, March 4.

OBITUARY OF REV, JAMES P. MCMULLEN OF GORO, PICKENS COUNTY, ALABAMA 

by Col. Thomas Lanier of Bethesda Presbyterian Church 

Copied from an old church record on file in the Presbyterian 
Historical Foundation, Montreat, North Carolina. 

"In January 1864 he entered the Confederate Army as a missionary to 
General Baker's Brigade and remained as such in the discharge of this 
duty until the 14th day of May 1864, in the Camp Bivouac on the march. 
In this charge on the 14th of May, this great and good man-fell-a 
martyr to the cause he so earnestly espoused. He fell in the midst 
of a heavy fire and his God-like soul returned to the God who gave it. 
He was already ready to administer to the wants of the sick and wounded, 
The wounded solders from the battlefied found in him a true friend 
and many a soldier will bless the day he was sent to the Army. He 
had the respect and confidence of every man in the Brigade. His 
preaching was of example as well as precept and never shall the writer 
forget the manner in which he applied the truths of the gospel during 
a protracted meeting, near Dalton, Georgia in the spring of 1864. 
Early in May, the spring campaign opened and after some heavy fire 
our army, gradually falling back, made a stand at Resaca, Georgia. On 
the 14th of May, our Division was ordered to charge the enemy on our 
front. Here the many and impulsive nature of the deceased could 
not be kept out of the charge. When remonstrated with he replied: 
'Colonel, my Country is as dear to me as it is to any soldier you 
have.' He was as true a patriot as he was a Christian Minister. 
He believed conscientiously that the South was right, and that religion, 
as well as Civic Liberty was involved in the contest and whether he 
was right — time will tell. Death is a terrible necessity and a 
dreadful calamity when such men have been sacrificed in the prime 
of life — in their days of usefulness. May the good fruit-seeds sown 
by him during his life, take root, spring up and produce fruit." 
He married 1838 Martha Leonora Fulton 1817-1869.

living in Greene County, Alabama as early as 183 7 and as late as 1844. 
My grandfather was a brother to this John and his name was FEASTER 
MCSHAN. He married Lucy Ann Coleman about 183 7 and lived in South 
Carolina until early 1840 's, when he moved to Pickens County, Alabama. 
They had a son William Chambers McShan and eight other children, of 
whom, my father was the 7th child. I have an earlier record of my 
grandfather McShan ' s parents, who were Nathan Coleman and Elizabeth 
Wright. "

OBITUARY OF MEREDITH TAYLOR 
Died of cancer of the mouth, at the resident of his oldest son, 
THOMAS TAYLOR, in Pickens County, Alabama on the evening of the 29th 
ult., in the 81st year of his age - MEREDITH TAYLOR- who was born 
in the State of North Carolina, near the Virginia line, from which 
place his father moved to South Carolina — while he was a child and where 
he remained until the winter of 1833, when he came to this State. (Ala.) 
He had been an exemplary Christian for the last forty years and was a 
regular and consistant member of the Baptist Church, almost since the 
year 182 7 — having witnesses in the previous year — in October. 
During his protracted and loathsome disease, he often expressed a 
desire to depart that he might be with Christ. He frequently remarked, 
to the writer, as well as to others, that he had been a great sinner, 
but that his trust was in the Crucified, Arisen and Exalted Savior, 
whose blood he conceived to be sufficient to cleanse from all sin, 
therefore, his friends and relations who are left to mourn his loss, 
may not sorrow, as those who have no hope, for as much as their loss 
was doubled. He died March 29, 1844, 

The deceased v\as among the few rem.aining spirits, who — in the days of 
the Revolutionary War, stood in the defense of our rights and boldly 
contended for the rescue of these United States — from the British Tyranny 
and oppression — in his 16th year— as a substitute for his father — he 
served in the command under the direction of Col. Lincoln on the 
Carolina side of the Savannah River, at Black Swamp (now Hamburg) and 
after three months in the Low Country of South Carolina, at a place 
called Four Hole. 

In the 17th year of his age, he was in the Army under General Greene, 
on his own account and actually engaged in the memorial battle which 
occurred at Eutaw Springs, in which the Americans gained an important 
victory over the British, under Stewart-=which really finished the war 
in South Carolina, 

As a reward for his labors and privations, the deceased, as were many 
of his contemporaries, was spared to see many days to enjoy the many 
blessings of our free Institutions, so dearly purchased for us, at the 
expense of the blood of the Whigs of 1776. 

He and his departed comrade reaised seven children, five sons and two 
daughters — all of them, except two, live in this state and were to 
witness his dissolution. His remains lay in the graveyard of the 
Baptist Church of the Garden, Pickens County, Alabama, he to wait the 
shrill summons of Gabriel's trumpet, on the Morning of the Resurrection. 

The "South Carolinian, " at Columbia, South Carolina will please copy

OBITUARY 
MR. J. H. WIER 
On the 10th day of July, 1885, at 11:30 P. M. , Mr. J. H. Wier 
died at his home, near Carrollton, Alabama in the sixtieth year 
of age. Mr. Wier was born in Abbeville, District, South Carolina 
on the 25th day of August 1825. When he was eleven years of age, 
his parents removed with him to Pickens County, Alabama and where he 
regarded as his home, with the exception of a few years spent in 
Mississippi. 

In the War between the States, he served in the Army of the South 
as a Lieut, in the 40th Alabama Regiment. At the close of that 
war he "exchanged the sword for the plough." 
He married Miss Elizabeth J. Taylor who died in 1881, leaving 
two adult children. In September 1883, he married Miss Martha 
P. Archibald who survived him. 

In 1858 he made a profession of faith and connected himself with 
the Presbyterian Church at Enterprise, Mississippi. 
As in his secular, so in his church relations, he was modest and 
unassuming, here as there, he was prompt to know his duty. 
His death was a fitting close to such a life - calm and 
undisturbed, willing to remain if the Lord so willed, but prepared 
to go without a dread or doubt.
