EXPLANATION OF ANCESTOR AND GENERATION 
KEYING SYSTEM USED IN THIS FAMILY HISTORY 

Since this book was essentially prepared for our immediate 
family the ancestor and generation keying system is based upon the 
direct ancestor and children of JESSE B. ROBINSON 2nd 1 and his 
wife HELEN COX 2. 

All direct ancestors are keyed in sequence, with their key 
number under lined and placed following their name, which is always 
printed all in capitals. Since they are in sequence and number 
backward the generation from JESSE ROBINSON 1 and HELEN COX 2 
can be determined from the key number as follows: 
Generation Index Numbers 

1 1-2 Jesse B. Robinson and Helen Cox 

2 3-6 

3 7-14 

4 15-30 

5 31-62 

6 63 - 126 

7 127 - 254 

8 255 - 510 

9 511 - 1022 
10 1023 - 2046 

All children of JESSE _1 and HELEN 2 are keyed by an underlined 
letter from A through J. 

The easiest way to determine the relationship of direct ancestors 
is to look at the family tree chart. It can also be determined without 
the chart by the following procedure. All odd key numbers are direct 
ancestors of JESSE B. ROBINSON 2ND I and all even key numbers are direct 
ancestors of HELEN COX 2. To determine the key number of the parent of 
any direct ancestor, simply multiply that ancestors key number by two 



and if the original number was odd, Chen add one to the result to 
keep it an odd number. 

All other persons listed in this book are indexed according to 
their relationship to one of the keyed direct ancestors or children. 
For example, on page 166 is listed a Naomi Ann Cox with a key number 
of 16-2-1-7. This person is the 7th child of the 1st child of the 2nd 
child of CARY COX, SR. _16, a direct ancestor. 

On page 36 is listed a Margot Elizabeth Black with an index of 
G-l-1-2. This person is the 2nd child of the 1st child of the 1st 
child of ANNIE ROBINSON HOLSTUN G, who was the 7th child of JESSE I 
and HELEN 2.

JESSE II was born in Milltown, Ala. in 1845. He attended boarding school at West 
Point, Ga. until he enlisted in the Civil War. 

He entered service March 1, 1863 in Tennessee and was discharged April , 1865 at 
Aiken So. Carolina. He was a cavalryman in the 8th Confederate Battalion commanded by 
General "Fighting Joe" Wheeler. He was wounded in the battles at Chickamauga, 
Rassaca, Ga., and Aiken, S. C. He signed an Amnesty Oath to the United States on 8-31-1865, 
in Chambers Co., Ala. He helped organize the Waverly Camp #1672 of the United Confederate 
Veterans and was its first commander. 

After the Civil War, he moved to Elmore Co., Ala., with his father to help establish a 
new plantation. He returned to Chambers Co., Ala., now Lee Co., by 1870. Upon his 
return he purchased the Bigerstaff plantation next to the Lee-Talapoosa County line. 

He married shortly after in 1871 and he and his wife lived in the original plantation 
house until their death. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary at this home 
in 1921, with a reception attended by seven children and twenty grandchildren. 

He was one of the largest farmers in Lee Co., a trustee of the school district and a 
Justice of the Peace. His wife, HELEN, was instrumental in establishing schools in the 
area, and taught many of her grandchildren and neighbor children in classes she held 
in her home . 

He died in Opelika at the home of his daughter, Mrs. G. 0. Maulsby, after a six week 
illness. He was buried in his Confederate uniform in the cemetary of the Canaan Primative 
Baptist Church next to his wife, who had died earlier that year. Both were members of the 
church since 1871. After all the children left home they spent the winter months in Opelika

The experiences of JESSE B. ROBINSON II in the Confederate Array were often told to 
his children. The following are narratives written by two of his children: 

By: Willis Cox Robinson 

My father, Jesse Berryman Robinson, attempted to enlist in the Southern Army 
in the "War Between the States" in 1861. He was 15 years old at the time and was turned 
down because he was too young and too small. In the winter of 1862 when he became heavy 
enough to enlist, he did so. 

The first company he was in was Company "E". He was later in Companies "I" and "K7 
in the Eighth Confederacy. He was under the command of Col. Prater and General "Fighting 
Joe" Wheeler of Alabama. 

As cavalrymen smoked practically all the time, a soldier was detailed with Father, 
teaching him to smoke. 

He had practiced shooting a pistol until he was an expert. 

The night before the Battle of Chickamauga, September 19th and 20th, 1863, Wheeler's 
Cavalry camped across the Chickamauga Creek near Reed's Bridge. They went into battle 
early next morning going southwest into the battlefield and Father received his first 
wound in that battle. A little southwest of where the Alabama monument now stands, Father 
was wounded. He showed me the place during the dedication of the monument. 

A bombshell tube hit his big toe of his right foot. He got off his horse and picked 
up the tube and put it in his pocket. (The tube is in the Archives at Montgomery, Ala. 
placed there by my sister, Mrs. Helen R. Graves). A few minutes later, a minnie ball hit 
his sabre and broke it against his right hip and thigh. 

He fought through the battle to and through "Bloody Pond" near Lytle, just north of 
Wilders Tower. The cavalry on both sides fought with empty pistols as clubs in hand to 
hand fighting, also used sabres. Father's sabre being broken, he used his pistol as a 
club. The soldier's faces were so dark from tearing small containers of powder with their 

4 



:eeth to reload their pistols, one could not tell who anyone was except by their uniforms. 
\fter sundown, a pond of blood and water had formed in the flat section giving it its name. 

That night they cut Father's boot off and doctored his foot. 

There was quite a bit of scouting in and about Chattanooga. I don't remember the 
jxact dates. A Fourth Michigan Cavalryman who fought in Bloody Pond told me that a group 
of his companions who were camped in North Chattanooga were detailed to go to Dalton, 
Seorgia and burn the Confederate wagon train and supplies. They went, but he admitted 
that about the time they got there heard "Wheeler is coming" and rushed away, not doing 
a good job. He said "when we heard that Forest was coming, we knew we had to fight, but 
when we heard Wheeler was coming, our faces would break out with sweat, because we expected 
the fight at once." 

In the retreat through North Georgia, Father in crossing over a creek at Resacca, 
Georgia on slabs laid on crossties on a railroad bridge had his horse's front foot slip 
between the slabs and hurt his knee badly. Near that time he had the measles. I don't 
remember whether he was cared for in Camp or in Dalton, Ga. 

Down somewhere hear Kinnesaw Mountain north of Atlanta, Father was ordered to report 
to Gen. Morgan. He found Morgan lying on a pallet in his tent talking to Gen. Wheeler. 
Father only being 17 years old, Morgan asked Gen. Wheeler "do you propose to trust these 
papers in that lad's hands?" Wheeler replied: "Col. Prater selected Rob and knowing him 
personally as I do, I don't believe I know of a better man." One reason of Fathers selection 
was he was an expert shot. After some questions and instruction about destroying the papers 
if shot by the enemy, Morgan ordered him not to spare his horse, promising another if his 
horse was ruined, and gave instructions on how to get to Gen. A. P. Hill. Father was 
allowed to fill his canteen from a jug of whiskey setting beside Morgan's pallet. The 
whiskey was to be used only after he had delivered the messages, or destroyed them if 

severely wounded.

While riding through, he stopped at a house and asked for "Buttermilk" and asked a 
lady if she had seen any "Rats". She said "two just ahead." Being a cold morning, 
Father took his saddle blanket off his horse mainly to cover his uniform as he knew he 
was in enemy territory. He rode on to Gen. A. P. Hill who was on a ridge with field 
glasses watching an infantry battle in the valley below. When Father delivered his message 
to Gen Hill, Hill complimented him on his being two hours earlier than the time given. 
When Gen Hill opened the papers, Father asked for the General's field glasses. Hill gave 
them to him and Father watched the infantry battle while Hill read the message. After 
Gen. Hill gave him a verbal reply, he instructed Father to retire as rainnie balls were 
flying all around them. Gen. Hill said, "No need of two men exposing themselves unless 
necessary. 

The promised horse was not found waiting for Father and he being tired of riding a 
sore back horse, heard that Grandfather had him a good horse. After the Battle of 
Jonesburrough when Hood succeeded Johnston and because Father had the horse of a cousin 
killed in that battle; he tried to get a furlough to go home to deliver his cousin's horse 
and get his new one. Father, having failed to get a furlough and since Hood had started 
on his wild goose chase back up into Tennessee, like many others, Father left without 
leave. He swam his horse across the Chattahoochie at Fillpots Ferry and went home. 

After Father had rested up a while, he helped to organize and train a company of old 
men and boys. When Gen. Johnston succeeded Gen. Hood and called for the return of his 
men, two other soldiers on leave like Father started back to Gen. Johnston at West Point, Ga. 
They had to get a pass to go on not having furloughs. They decided to prove they were 
trained cavalrymen, so they got out in the main street and began knocking off each others 
hats and picking them up by whirling in the saddle with their horses at a gallop. A crowd 
gathered to watch them and someone pitched out a 25 cent piece. They picked it up several 
times until they felt they had satisfield the crowd and the soldiers watching them. One of 



the three asked Father to ride into a bunch of turkeys on a hill nearby, saying he would 
pay for the ones he missed, and in undertone told Father to kill only about three or four. 
Father rode in a gallop up into the turkeys and shot three times taking the top of the heads 
off two turkeys and unjointing the neck of the other. Thinking that they had satisfield 
the crowd, Father was elected to get the passes. An officer whom you could hardly tell 
his rank by his uniform, proved to be Gen. Tyler in charge of West Point. Father told 
him his business and was asked to Tyler's office upstairs. Gen. Tyler asked him for his 
furlough. Of course Father told him he had lost it. After some discussion he got a pass. 
He told Gen. Tyler the two men holding his horse were as brave as ever faced with the 
enemy and had lost their furloughs and wanted passes too. He got them and they went on to 
Johnston. 

The three soldiers went back and the final battle in which Jesse B. Robinson fought 
was near Aiken, S. C. A minnie ball passed through his thigh a short distance above his 
knee, shattering the thigh bone. His' comrades advised him that the Yankees would get to 
him before he could be taken eight miles to Aiken, S. C. He had them give him a drink, 
put him on his horse and he rode the eight miles to a church in Aiken being used as a hospital. 
There he was taken off his horse and carried to the church door. When he saw the treatment 
of the men, using saws, etc., because they had no better means, he refused to go in and he 
was finally put in the Pastor's study. This room was being used for the dead. 

While waiting his turn in the dead room, a preacher who appeared at the hanging of Sam 
Davis and at other times of slaughter, kneeled and examined Father and his wound. He asked 
Father his age. Father told him 19 years old and he said: "Don't let them cut your leg 
off, you are too young and in good health to lose it." At Father's request he gave him his 
saddle bags containing a pistol and some whiskey. The men in charge wanted to amputate the 
leg, but Father used his pistol in hand and saved the leg which lasted him until he died at 
77 years of age. 

My father was the first Commander of the Waver ly, Alabama, Camp of the Confederacy. 

He went thru the War as "Rob" to his comrades. 



By: Helen Robinson Graves F 

My father, Jesse Berryman Robinson II, born in Milltown, Alabama, was a young fellow 
when the "War Between the States" started. At the time my Grandfather had him away in 
West Point, Ga., at a private boarding school for boys. 

Spending his first Christmas at home, he found his two older brothers home from the 
War. William, a Captain and Thomas a Lieutenant, both in the cavalry, were in their 
uniforms and carrying swords and pistols. This appealed very much to his young mind as 
he asked his father to let him join up. Of course Grandfather sent him back to school 
but before the term was over he ran away from school and joined a Georgia Company. 

Many interesting episodes happened to him. He had a horse shot from under him and 
another one received a broken leg. He played in the snow and had to be hospitalized at 
Rassacker, Ga. He was in Company K, 8th Confederate Cavalry at the Battle near Aiken, S.C. 
when a Minnie ball struck him just above the knee. He did not realize he had been shot 
until some one called to him that blood was running from him down over his boots and called 
his attention to it. He was taken to the rear where he received some first aid. He was 
told he could not get back to the Confederate Hospital without being captured anyway, so 
he was told to ride eight miles into Augusta, Ga., where the Yankees had a Hospital in an 
old Church. On arrival he was placed near where they were operating and treating the wounded. 
He could hear the cries of the men so when he refused to go in, they put him elsewhere. An 
elderly Preacher or Doctor came to him and asked him how old he was and he told him he was 
19 years. Then he was advised not to have his leg taken off, that he was too young, and 
that his youth would help him through. Later when they came for him he asked what they 
intended to do. When they said amputate his leg, he insisted they were not to do so and that 
he was told to wait for this older Doctor who would care for him. He was taken care of by 
the older Doctor, and with some trouble finally was able to be out of the Hospital on 
crutches when the War closed. Later he was told he could go home if he signed allegiance to 

8 



tie United States, but he stated he would sign when he arrived home. He wrote his 
ather they would discharge him and for him to come for him. Grandfather took his 
arriage driver and went to Augusta, Ca. for him. On arrival Grandfather asked him to 
ee if he could get his horse, which had been taken by the Yankees. When father asked 
he Officer in charge, he laughed at him and said, "Boy, we don't know which horse is 
ours." Father said, "If I can prove to you which is my horse, will you let me take him?" 
•ather has lost so many horses in this War, he needs this horse on the farm." He was taken 
;o the Commanding Officer and told if he could prove to the Officer in charge which horse 
ras his, he could have him. So he and the Officer went to the enclosure where the horses 
fere kept and father called "Monk, come here", probably once or twice, and Monk came to 
iim. The Officer in charge said, "Boy, you have chosen one of our finest horses. How did 
rou know what name to call?" Then father said, "I will go out here and lie down and when 
[ call to him you let him come to me." This he did and when he called, "Monk, come," the 
wrse walked over to him. Father then said, "Monk, down, down Monk". The horse got down 
on the ground beside father and he and his crutches climbed up on him. The horse got up 
gently and walked back to the Officer who said, "I believe that is your horse." So 
Grandfather tied the horse to the back of the carriage and they went back to Milltown. 
£ou see, the Slaves had taught the horse to lay beside on command so if father was ever 
hurt on the battlefield, he could climb on and get away. 



There is some discrepancy between the two narratives concerning Jesse Robinson's 
final injury. However, the following information taken from his Alabama Confederate Pension 
application supports his daughter's rendition.

1st. Resacca, Ga. Knee cap. 

2nd. Tunnell Hill. Tube of Minnie ball struck foot and large toenail removed. 

3rd. Aiken, S. C. Left limb, bullet split bone three inches above knee. Entered 

Hospital at Augusta, Ga. Feb 12, 1865. Discharged on crutches Feb. 23, 1865. 

Home on furlough when war ended.

The following was written by the Author, Mrs. Helen Graves F : 

My mother, Helen Evelyn Cox Robinson, was the baby of ten children, and 
was especially fond of her father, Willis Cox. She told us children many stories 
of his experience in trading among the Indians and plantation life before the 
War Between the States. She said her father never allowed a slave to be 
punished by his overseers; they could correct and show them how and why, but 
whip them or punish them in any other way was done by him. The Overseer would 
bring them to him and explain their offense, and he would administer whatever 
punishment he deemed necessary. The colored women would even bring their 
children to him for correction or punishment when they were caught stealing 
fruit or watermelons. He usually took the child behind the house to administer 
the correction. The little colored children had learned to jump up and down 
and say "Oh Mas Willis, Oh Mas Willis." Grandfather never allowed anyone to 
pull the fruit from his young trees, as he said there were plenty of older 
orchards to furnish fruit. As he had planted seed from an especially good 
apple or peach, he wanted to let the first fruit ripen and see if it would be 
worth propagating further. Mother said she had been told never to take the 
first fruit from a special young tree near the house, but it hung so long and 
was so pretty and tempting that one day she took this beautiful apple from this 
young tree near the house and ate it. Said she remembered it was very delicious. 
When Grandfather came home, it being gone was the first thing he noticed. When 
he inquired if anyone knew anything about it, she had to admit to taking it. 
He explained to her he would have to punish her as he had the little colored 
children. So he got a switch and took her out behind the house to the tree. 



11 



Upon the Eirsl lick with the switch, she Loo jumped up and clown and hollered 
"Oh, Mas WiLLLs" and that one Lick was Lhc only one she- received. lie Look hoi" 
into the house to his wife and they explained to her that she was their own 
LittLe girl and she must always be obedient and set an example to the other 
children. He never switched her again, but that was one time she never forgot 
and was always amused at the outcome. She always spoke in the highest terms 
of what a just and fair man her Father was. 

Grandfather not only had an Overseer for the fields, but for the ginning, 
spinning, weaving, housekeeping, cooking and sewing room. While Grandmother 
was the. main Overseer of the latter five, each had a trusty sLave woman to run 
and supervise under her. But the Tan Yard, making 'eather, shoes and hoots, was 
run by a Mr. Allgood, who was a we Ll-educated, refined and intelligent family 
man. Since the War had taken all the young men in the country, he persuaded 
my mother to teach the young children growing up in the neighborhood.' He and 
Grandfather fixed up the school house and notified the neighborhood there would 
be a school. Mother said she would come by the Tan Yard every day to give 
Mr. Allgood a report of the days proceedings. He was most kind and helpful in 
advising her how to handle any situation arising. 

After the War, Mr. Allgood took his family to a cross roads between Roxanna 
and Notasulga and built a beautiful home and store. This developed into a 
quite large community known as "Allgood," which even had a Post Office when I 
grew up. 

Mother's next experience in teaching was in 1868, according to a Letter 
she wrote to her Cousin Dora Potts who had married Gus Crawford, Sr. There 
were four little girls left orphan when James Potts was killed in the War Between 



12 



Che States, as their Mother Sophie Brooks Potts had also died. Grandmother 
took the oldest and youngest in her home to rear with her children. So Mother 
had grown up with them and loved them as sisters. Dora was born the same year 
as my Mother, and by 1868 had married Mr. Crawford of Nashville, Tenn. Mother 
was having a lively time, as she said in her letter, "First I'll tell you where 
I am and what I am doing. Sis Mary has been teaching schooL at the Academy, but 
she is now sick and I am teaching in her place. Taught last week and am regularly 
in this week. Sis Mary has been sick about three weeks, had a hard chill 
yesterday, was right sick last night when I got home from school"...... 

"The girls are carrying on at such a rate that I have to laugh all the time. 
Beck Alvis is in school and is one of the liveliest things you ever saw. I can 
hardly write for her...." "There is to be an 'Arithmetical School 1 next week 

and thank gracious 1 won't have to teach school. I don't like to teach at all. 
I will attend the school through next week." 

My Mother married in 1871 and started a large family of ten children and 
she taught every one of them. When my older brothers grew up, she taught them 
at night, also, the neighbor boys. They would all work in the fields during the 
day, come home, feed their horses, clean up and then come to classes at night with 
her boys. There was no pay in this, but Mother said her boys had to associate with 
the neighbor children, so she wanted them educated. She held classes in the day 
time for her girls and the neighborhood girls. If bad weather came up, the 
girls would remain the night unless the parents came for them. This didn't 
bother the three of us younger sisters. We would get off in another room and play 
games and have a good time. Later the County paid my Mother a nominal sum for 
teaching. She taught at Canaan .urch, but it was hard to keep warm in the 
winter, even though a corner of the church had been partitioned off with a good 
vood stove. Later my Father used one of his tenant houses for a school room, 



affording much more comfort to all. Mother taught long after her youngest 
child was born. Whenever I used to attend meetings or public gatherings at home 
I had people say to me "Miss Helen, I'll never forget your Mother's sayings 
in writing copies on my slate for me."

BIGERSTAFF PLANTATION 

The Bigerstaff Plantation waa purchased by Jesse B. Robinson II in 1870. It was 
family tradition, handed down from Jesse, that the home was originally built around 1830 when 
:he land was still claimed by the Creek Nation. Deed records indicate that it was among 
the first permanent farms established in eastern Alabama. 

The original house was twenty by thirty with a half-story sleeping loft above. Later, 
ten foot hall was added to the side and rooms were added on making four large rooms each 
with a chimney. Stairs in the hall led to the upper room. A dining room and kitchen formed 
an L, with porches on both sides, and a ten foot wide veranda with columns across the front, 
disable in the attic loft were thirty foot long hand hewn beams and rafters. All of the 
framing was joined by wood pegs driven in hand drilled holes. 

In front of the house was a grove of oak trees. In the rear a grove of pecan and 
hickory trees led to a large spring. Also in the rear were the slave quarters, the 
foundations of which could still be seen as late as 1900.

"In Christinas rush, its hard Co find 
Just what would please, time after time 

I'LL buy some 'hankies' wait and see 

What others give, Then these from me. 

He waLked right home with Santa's box 
Of 'hankies', shirts, and ties and socks; 
With cigarettes, and even toys 
That he can use to make a noise. 

An envelope fat with "MAZUMA" 

And shining botties of good humor, 

What he has not, there isn't any- 

E'LL give for Luck a bright new penny!"

m. 1st- 4-12-1904 Claud Patrick Graves Divorced. (son of Martha Ann Patrick

EDITORS NOTE: 

Exercising the editors 1 perrogative to change a book as one sees fit, I have 
written the following narrative on Mrs. Helen Graves. From the volumnous source 
materials used for this book, I could see that her autobiography was much too modest. 

This remarkable woman would not adhere to the inactive gentillity expected of 
women in rural Alabama in her generation. She has admitted she raised a few eyebrows 
in her time, starting with riding side saddle in her youth, to 1962, when after a 
near fatal car accident she instructed her plastic surgeon to hurry and get on with 
it as she had plans she did not wish interrupted. One of her nephews commented, 
"I doubt very seriously that she will attend her own funeral, she just won't admit 
it's time to quit." 

Helen Graves graduated from High School in Birmingham, Ala. She entered and 
graduated in 1913 from Birmingham Teachers Training School, Kindergarten Section, 
and taught in the Birmingham Public Schools and at the Southern Industrial Institute 
at Camp Hill, Ala, which was located only eight miles from her home in Waverly. 
Between 1920 - 1927 she taught in the Public Schools of several communities in 
Alabama and Western Florida.

In 1927 she moved to Chattanooga, Tenn. and enrolled at the Baroness Erlanger 
Hospital Training School for Nurses, graduating in 1930. During her summer vacations 
from nursing school attended several summer schools in Auburn, Ala. and was a 
supervisor of a Playground Program in Birmingham. Her recreational training was under 
Mr. Z. Nesper, who afterward became National Director of the Play Grounds of America. 
One summer she was the Hostess at Riverdale Lodge at Mentone, Ala. 

After graduation as a nurse, she spent the summer of 1930 at Gamp Glancy with the 
Chattanooga Girl Scouts. She became a Captain of Girl Scouts with her certificate 
being signed by Juliet Lowe, the founder of the Girl Scouts. Then in the summer of 
1931 she was the Camp Nurse at the Juliet Lowe Girl Scout Camp on Lookout Mt. 

She was the Director of Education in 1930-1931 at the Baptist Hospital in 
Birmingham, Ala., and then for three years at the West Side Hospital, Scranton, Pa. 
She then moved to New York City with some of her classmates for Post Graduate Studies 
at Polytechinal and Medical College. Then moved to Oklahoma as Director of 
Education at two different nursing schools. She then accepted an excellent offer 
as Director of Education at Brightlook Hospital, St. Johnsburg, Vermont. 

She continued her education while working and attended Mary Wood College in 
Scranton, Pa., and had taken extension courses from the Unv. of Pennsylvania. After 
leaving Vermont, she enrolled at the Unv. of Penn., taking special work in teacher 
training for development of "Home Nursing" and "Care of the Sick" programs. 

She loved to travel and took advantage of every opportunity. Made extensive 
tours of the west, east, Canada and Hawaii, much of this traveling was done before 
extensive tourist accomodations and paved roads existed. She stated that everyone 
ought to ride over a gravel road in a nineteen twenties era car for a few days to 
really appreciate modern travel.

She moved to Chattanooga, Tenn. to be near her daughter, but the damp and 
cold winter of Chattanooga aggravated a sinus condition that started in Vermont. 
Her Doctor advised her to move to the West Coast of Florida. She sold her house 
and moved first to Lakeland, Fla. for the winter and then to Clearwater, Fla., 
which has now been her home since the spring of 1943. She did private-duty nursing 
until she was critically injured in a car accident on June 16 1962. After a 
prolonged recuperation and plastic surgery, she became active again. 

She joined the American Nursing Association and League of Nursing Education 
on entering her profession, joining in each state, as well as affiliating with the 
local nursing organizations wherever she worked. On arrival in Clearwater, Fla. 
she and three other nurses worked to bring a much needed official nurses registry 
to the area. When she first came to Florida, she was appointed to the State Chairman- 
ship of the Education and Legislature Section of the American Nursing Association 
where she served untiringly. She was Chairman of Private Duty Section in District 13. 
She worked to establish a new District 33, and in 1964 that District of Florida 
Nurses made Mrs. Graves an Honorary Member. 

During her active civic and professional life, she had joined the Educational 
Association, Eastern Star in 1920, Altrusa Club in 1931, (Charter member in 
Birmingham and Clearwater, Fla.) Business and Professional Womens Club (Scranton 
and Birmingham). Chairman of the League of Women Voters and President of P. T. A. 
while teaching in Alabama. Joined the United Daughters of the Confederacy and was 
Secretary of the Chapter at Waverly. Joined the Daughters of the American Revolution 
in 1919, Nat. #149509 on John Evans. Her Mother, Helen Cox Robinson, who started this 
family genealogy and had previously worked up several ancestors who served in the 
Revolution, did not join until 1920, when she found her Great Grandfather, Rev. Cary 
Cox S^s service in Halifax Co., N. C, Nat. #157234. 

33 



In Clearwater she joined several civic organizations and was made Regent of 
the Clearwater Chapter D. A. R. 1950 - 1952. Became a member at large and Organizing 
Regent and Regent of Cary Cox Chapter D. A. R., an evening chapter for business and 
professional women. Served fifteen months as Regent until June 1954, and then Registrar 
until 1964. Still active and served as Chairman of State several times and in 1964 was 
given a life membership in the Cary Cox Chapter, D. A. R. with all State and National 
dues paid for life. Member of the Baptist Church. 

In 1917 she was '"Maid of Honor" at the Alabama Reunion of the United Confederate 
Veterans in Mobile. Chaperon to the U.C.V. meeting in Washington, D. C. in 1918. 

She was listed in Who's Who of American Women in 1964. Her local newspaper, 
the Clearwater Sun, did a feature article on her in its S-inday issue, honoring her 
as an Educator, Nurse, Clubwoman and Civic Leader. She was president two terms of 
the Parliamentary Club of Clearwater, and still serves other organizations as 
parliamentarian. She belongs to thirteen patriotic organizations. Organized and 
served two terms as President of the Lachaway Chapter of the United States Daughters 
of 1812, in Tampa, Fla. Was elected a Regent of John Donaldson, Jr. Chapter, U. S. 
Daughters of the American Colonies, in Tampa, Fla. Very active in the Mary Custis 
Lee Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy, and has been Secretary and State 
chairman. Belongs to a number of Genalogical Societies and was an organizing member 
of the Southern Genalogical Society. 

She has been interested in genealogy, making it her hobby for around twenty years. 
Her interest was sparked by the amount of family material that her mother had accumulate" 
and came into her possession. She has worked dilligently and spent substantial funds 
to secure the information contained in this book. 

Age is forcing her to close up her work on her family, to insure that the records 
will not be lost or destroyed. 

She resides at 707 Pennsylvania Ave., Clearwater, Fla 33515.

ANCESTOR FAMILIES OF 
JESSE BERRYAAN ROBINSON II 



44 



ANDREW ROBERSON II 63 

b. 1654 Scotland d. 2-19-1720 Douglasville, Pa. 

m. ca. 1685 MARY SPENCER 65 b. 1666 d. 11-12-1716 Philadelphia, Pa. 

ANDREW came to America about 1676 with his uncle, Andrew Robeson, Sr. 
He settled in Gloucester Co. West Jersey, where he lived until 1702 when 
he moved to "Shoomac Park" Roxboro Township, Philadelphia Co., Province of 
Pennsylvania. The first public mention of ANDREW was in 1687 when he was 
appointed Assessor of Taxes for the County of Gloucester, West Jersey by 
the Grand Jury of Gloucester County. At the same time he was a Ranger for 
the County. He was a member of the Council of Proprietors of West Jersey 
from 1688 to 1701, having become Proprietor of one share, December 12, 1687. 
He became a Judge of Gloucester Co. in 1692, and Chief Justice of the Province 
of Pennsylvania from 1693 to 1699. He was a member of the Governor's Provincial 
Council of New Jersey from 1697 to 1701. 

ANDREW and his family were not "Friends" (Quakers) and therefore they 
attended the Swedish Church. He was living near Amity and was buried in the 
grounds of St. Gabriel's Church yard and has this epitaph on the back of his 
headstone— "A" (Skull) "R" (Hour Glass) "X" (Cross Bones), "Remember Death". 

His wife, MARY was buried in the grounds adjacent to Old Swedes Church (Glorie 
Dei) Philadelphia, Pa. Her grave and tombstone are at the right of the walk, 
near the entrance door of the Church. 

ANDREW'S will was dated "Sixth Year of the Reign of King George of Great 
Britain, Anno Domini 1719-20" and was probated March 7, 1719 in the County of 
Perm. In his will he names sons Andrew, Israel, Jonathan as executors of the 
will and sons David, Thomas, Samuel, and Peter and daughters Elinor, Mary, and 

45 



Margot. His son David was given "land whereunto he now possesses". No mention 
is made in the Will of the eldest daughter Magdaline, but she was married to 
Thomas Potts and probably had been given her inheritance when she married, as 
was the custom of the time. The marriages of Thomas York to Robinsons and the 
record of relationship which each bore the other, is proof that Magdeline was 
his daughter.

d. 1822-23 Jasper Co., Ga. m. 1755-60 MARY 1£ b. ? 

d. Probably in N. C. 

THOMAS, SR. was born in Pennsylvania and migrated to North Carolina 
between 1750-1764 with his brother William following his uncle Thomas 
(63-6) who had migrated earlier. 

He and his brother fought in the Revolutionary War for which he 
ultimately received a land grant in a Georgia Land Lottery. The following 
incident is taken from "King's Mountain and Its Heroes'* by Lyman Draper , 
page 265. 

'•Among Hampton's men was William Robertson, who during the fight 
was shot completely through the body, the ball entering at one side, 
and passing out the other. He fell quite helpless to the ground. 
His wound was apparently mortal, and chancing to recognize one of 
his neighbors lying down near him, he anxiously inquired if he, too, 
was wounded. The reply was that his gun was choked, or something of 
the kind, and would not fire. Robertson then gave him his rifle. 
"Give me your shot-bag, also, old fellow," he added, for his own 
supply was exhausted. With his own hand the fallen patriot delivered 
him his ammunition. But God was better to the wounded hero than his 
fears; for in due time he recovered, and raised a family, living near 
Brittain, in Rutherford County, on the farm now occupied by William L. 
Twitty. 

Thomas Robinson-Robertson, a brother of the wounded man, was posted 
behind a tree, when a Tory neighbor, named Lafferty, discovering him, 
called him by name; and Robertson peering around the tree to see* if he 



could, who had spoken to him, when a ball sped quickly past him 
cutting the bark off the tree near his head. Robertson immediately fired 
back, before his antogonist could regain his position, mortally wounding 
the tricky Tory, who was near enough to exclaim, and he heard, "Robertson, 
you have ruined me." "The D— 1 help you" responded the Whig, and then 
re-loading his rifle resumed the fight for freedom." (This incident 
was derived from A. B. Long by William L. Twltty and mentioned in his 
correspondence with M. Gen. Lenoir. See Wheeler's "History of North 
Carolina" Vol. 2, p-167) 
In the Census of 1790, THOMAS, SR. was recorded as living in the Morgan 
District of Rutherford Co., N. C. Also living in the vicinity was his 
brother, William, and Abel Lewis, whose daughter, MARY LEWIS, was to 
marry his son, THOMAS, JR. In 1793 he sold considerable property to three 
of his children, the nature of much of the property indicating that he may 
have been distributing a portion of his estate and breaking up his household. 

In 1808, he moved with his sons THOMAS, JR. and James to Jasper Co., Ga. 
It is assumed that his wife had already died, as he was now 74 years old 
and no record in Georgia mentions either his wife or daughters. There are 
numerous deeds in Jasper Co., Ga. for Thomas Robinson, but we have been 
unable to determine which were his or his sons. However, because of his 
age, we have assigned them to THOMAS, JR. 

He died in 1822-23 around the age of 88. He was incapacitated before 



51 



his death as his son James and a man named Jacob Wise were appointed by 
the court to administer his property. His estate apparently totaled 
about $600.

-3 John Probably a son. 

Census and deed record strongly indicatp he had other children. 
Possible names are William, Luke and Mary.

THOMAS ROBINSON, JR., 2 or 15-1 b. ca. 1770, N. C. per 1830 
Census Georgia, d. August 1846 Fredonla, Chambers Co., Ala. 
m. June 20, 1797 MARY 6ALLIE) le^s 9 or 19.2 b. 4-29-1773 
d. 4-25-1863 Fredonla, Chambers Co., Ala. 

THOMAS, JR. was born In North Carolina around 1770. He was 
listed In his father's home In the 1790 Census of Rutherford Co., 
N. C. He married MARY LEWIS in 1797 in Rutherford Co., N. C. 

He moved to Jasper Co., Ga. in early 1808 only two years after 
the land was ceeded by the Creek Indians. With him were his 
widowed father THOMAS, SR. and presumably hi" brother, James, and 
a probable brother John, both of whom were ultimately recorded in 
the county. 

There are numerous deeds recorded in Jasper Co. for a THOMAS 
ROBINSON, but we have been unable to determine which father and son. 

The early deeds covered land that had just been granted in the 
1807 Georgia Land Lottery. 

THOMAS, JR. moved to Butts Co. near Indian Springs between 
1820-1830. He was recorded in Jasper Co. in the 1820 Census and 
Butts Co. in the 1830 Census. 

Deed records indicate he moved to Butts Co. in 1826 although he 
already owned land there by 1823. His daughter Sarah was married 
in 1824 in Monroe Co. from which Butts Co. was formed In 1825, and 
his son Abel was a Clerk in the Butts Co. District Court by 1826. 
Also, a John Robinson was one of the original incorporators of 
Jackson, the Butt County Seat in 1826, and a John E. Robinson 



57 



registered from Butts Co. for the 1827 Land Lottery. 

Family records state that his son JESSE BERRYMAN was born In 
Butts Co. in 1814, although it seems unlikely as Indians were still 
in control of the area at this early date. 

He moved to Chambers Co., Alabama, no later than the winter of 
1838-39, the date of his earliest deeds, and was recorded there 
in the 1840 Census. Its family tradition that he moved to Chambers 
Co. at the age of 70 to be near his sons because of his advancing age. 
His widowed wife MARY and his daughter Cinderella were recorded there 
in the 1850 Census, living next door to their son, Abel L. Robinson. 
Both he and his wife are buried in the Mt. Hickory Frimative Baptist 
Cemetery, near Milltown, Chambers Co., Ala. 

He died in 1846, leaving a substantial estate for that era and 

frontier. He apparently died intestate as no will record has been 

found and the distribution of assets has the appearance of a ratio 

distribution as set by law. The administrators of his estate were 

his son, JESSE BERRYMAN and his son-in-law, Samuel Strahan. The 

estate as finally discharged in 1869 totaled $11,900 in cash plus 

uncollec table debts, three of which were due by his sons John, 

Luke and Thomas, Jr. 

Children: The indefinite birth dates and sequence of the children 
are extrapolated from Census data, deed, will and marriage records.

H. JASPER AND BUTTS COUNTY - DATE FORMED 

Jasper County was known originally as Randolph County between 1808-12. 
It was formed from a portion of Baldwin Co., which was one of two 
large areas that were covered in the 2nd Georgia Land Lottery of 1807. 
The land in this lottery was ceded by the Creek Nation of Indians to 
the U. S. for use of Georgia, by a treaty held in Washington, D. C. 
on November 14, 1805. 

Butts County was formed in 1825 from Henry and Monroe Counties, which 
were formed in 1821 from the Indian lands ceded by the Creeks in 1818. 
These lands were parcelled out in the Georgia Land Lottery of 1820 and 
1821. 

Land squatters had invaded the Creek Indian lands before their forced 
cessation to the U. S., but their land titles were apparently held 
valid.

ROBINSON FAMILY 
CEMETRY RECORDS 

After Thomas Robinson, Jr., moved to Chamber Co., Ala., the 
majority of the family were then buried for the next five generations 
in: 

1. Mt. Hickery Primative Baptist Church Cemetery at 
Mi 11 town, Ala. 

2. Canaan Primative Baptist Church Cemetery near 
Waverly, Ala. and 

3. Opelika Cemetery at Opelika, Ala. 

The following are records copied from the tombstones in the 
last two, the Canaan and the Opelika Cemetery. 

Canaan Primative Baptist Church 

The Canaan Church was established before the Civil War, and 
abandoned during the 1930' s. Jesse B. Robinson II and Helen Cox 
Robinson joined this church soon after marrying and moving to 
Lee Co. He later exchanged land with his neighbor, John Allen, 
to enlarge the Robinson plot in the cemetery. 

The author has many fond memories of this church, as it was 
the center of gatherings of the community. Singings were held 
every Sunday afternoon. Services were held once a month on a 
successive Saturday and Sunday. A three day meeting and dinner was 
held on the grounds once a year. I can remember when there stood 
an old frame of an arbor where they held camp meetings in earlier 
days. Many of the slaves are buried in Canaan Cemetery. My mother, 
Helen Cox Robinson, showed us where the annex had been when the 
slaves were members. Many of the older negroes attended services 
until they died out. 

This is a copy of tombstones from Canaan Cemetery, near Waverly, 
Alabama, made by my sister, Dousie Robinson Maulsby, (Mrs. Gilbert 0. 
Maulsby, 904 5th Ave., Opelika, Ala. J and sent to me, Helen Robinson

d. 5-17-1876 Chambers Co., Ala. 

m. Sal lie Faulkner b. 1802 Georgia d. after 1876 

Abel was born in North Carolina in 1798. He moved with his parents 
SARAH and THOMAS ROBINSON SR. to Jasper Co., Ga. in 1808. He probably 
moved to Butts Co., Ga., as he was not living with them in Jasper Co. at 
the time of the 1820 Census, and was a Clerk in the District Court of 
Butts Co. by 1826. He apparently experienced some financial problems 
as his father bought four slaves from his property held under a Sheriff's 
Sale in Butts Co. in 1833. 

He moved to Chambers Co., Ala. between 1840-1846, probably closer to 
1840 when his parents and brother JESSE moved to Mill town in the county. 
He is buried in the Mt. Hickory Primative Baptist Church Cemetery near 
Milltown, next to his parents. The above birth and death dates are from 
his tombstone.

The majority of the following data on the dependents of Abel Robinson

The following Incident is from a diary kept by James 
Lewis Robinson's wife, Mary Fletcher Robinson, in an old 
composition book. 

"4th of July 1876, at Miltown, Chambers Co., Ala." 

"A crowd of eleven having gone up on the morning of the 
third to attend a Centennial to be given by the Citizens 
of Miltown and Neighborhood. We had a very pleasant trip 
going, except that we were thoroughly drenched by a summer 
storm just about three miles from the town, but we took it 
very calmly, for the crops were suffering for the want of 
rain. Myself, with my children, Charlie, Minnie and Maggie 
went to my Mother-in-Law's, Mrs. Abel Robinson's to dine and 
spend the night. John Robinson's children, Mattie, Sallie 
and Joshua went to Rev. D. Moon's, Mr. D. Greer's (her 
brothers-in-law) and Mr. John Wimbrish, Sen. (?). Next 
A. M. by 8 o'clock the people began to flock in by twos, 
threes and dozens, till the business part of town was 
crowded. There was a beautiful grove of natural trees 
growing on the western part of town, around the Missionary 
Baptist Church; and as the weather was very oppressive, the 
manager thought it would be more pleasant to have the benches 
moved out into the grove, therefore, it was accomplished in a 
short time, and a stand erected for the speakers. Col. Hudson 
of Hickery Flat & Rev. H. H. McCoy of the vicinity. About 

9 o'clock the audience was called to order and (End of

b. 1823 Cowetta Co., Ga. d. 1-7-1896 Opelika, Lee Co., Ala. 

JESSE B. 1ST was born In Georgia and moved with his father THOMAS to Chamber 
Co., Ala., no later than the winter of 1838-39, and possibly as early as 1836. 
He was recorded living next door to his father in the 1840 Census of Chambers Co. 
He married MARTHA ANN CARLISLE in Chambers Co., near Fredonia, Ala. on 2-14-1839, 
with the Rev. Moses Gunn officiating. Since she was only 15 or 16, he apparently 
had to register consent of her father to the marriage. 

He served as a first sargent in Capt. Moses Gunn's Company, Webb's Battalion, 
Alabama Militia in the Creek Indian War of 1836. He enlisted at Ft. Henderson on 
6-2-1836 and was mustered out at LaFayette, Alabama on 9-1-1836. He was described 
in his wife's military pension application as six feet one inch tall, blue eyes, 
auburn hair and red complexion, and a farmer born at Jackson, Butts Co., Ga. 

He lived at LaFayette, Chambers Co., Ala., until about 1840 and then moved 
within the county to Milltown, where he farmed and established a grist and cotton 
mill. 

The following narrative on JESSE is from the personal note of his daughter-in-law, 
HELENE COX ROBINSON. 

"During the War between the States, he was made Captain of the Home Guard at 
Milltown. My husband, Jesse B. Robinson II was home for a time from the War. 
He and his father gathered up all the old men and young boys to drill them for 
the Home Guard and to gather food and supplies for the men and horses stationed 
at West Point, Ga. After gathering these supplies, Captain Robinson took them 
to West Point, Ga., to General Robert C. Tyler. He was at the fall of West Point 
when Gen. Tyler was killed on Easter Sunday, April 16, 1865. Although many Home 
Guard units fought with the regular troops in the last chaotic days of the war, 
records of their service were not kept." 

-Si. 



He was financially hurt by the Civil War, losing crops, slaves, and horses. 
Since he was unable to hire field hands in Chambers Co., he sold his farm and 
mills. He purchased land in the Montgomery River Valley of Elmore Co., Ala., 
adjacent to Montgomery, the Capitol, where freed slaves were congregating. Not 
being accustomed to directly running hi farms, as he had used overseers, and 
because of the flooding of his fields by the adjacent river, he gave up after 
three years. He moved to Notasulga, Ala., buying the Trammell farm next to his 
son, JESSE II, where he soon died a "broken hearted and despondent man." His 
will was probated in Macon Co., Ala.

JOHN LEWIS 39 or 22"6 

b. 1728 Hanover Co., Va. d. 1782 Rutherford Co., N. C. 
m . ist-SARAH TALLIAFERRO 41. b Va 2nd-Susan Ann Clarkson 
d. after late 1779. 

JOHN was born In Virginia in 1728 and moved his family 
to N. Carolina between 1755-1775. He probably moved 
simultaneously with his two brother- in- laws, Alexander Mackey 
who married Sarah Lewis, and Joel Terrell who married Anna Lewis. 

It is probable, but not proven, that JOHN fought in the 
Revolutionary War. The heirs of a Jonn Lewis, Private, received 
a 640 acre grant for 84 months service. The grant was dated 
4-23-1785, after JOHN's death. It was executed by Major 
Joseph Dixion who in Oct, 1780 was with the N. C. Militia, 
Kings Mt, of which many men in this group were from Rutherford. Co. 

He died in Rutherford Co., N. C. where his will dated 10-20-1779 
was proven in court in April, 1782. In his will, he states that 
if his wife attempts to violate the will and sieze control of 
his property, other than her dower right, then the property 
bequeathed his youngest sons, Julius C. Lewis and David J. Lewis 
shall be divided among his other sonsL This is an odd directive 
that two sons should be denied property because of an act of 
their mother. A possible answer is that his wife, Susan Ann, 
was showing favoritism for her sons over his children by his 
first wife, and this threat was the only way he could prevent 
such action after his death. 

105 



The number of children he had is unknown. He mentions only 
five children by name in his will, Mildred, Frances, Julius C, 
David J., and Talliaferro, and then refers to "the rest of 
my sons." Four of his other sons were probably Charles, Abel, 
Rd., and John and possibly Henry and Hercules. These were the 
christian names of Lewis families living adjacent to one another 
in the 1790 Census. 

Rd. and John Lewis were bondsmen on the marriage of Abel Lewis 1 
daughter, Mary Lewis, to Thomas Robinson. And since they;Rd., 
John and Abel Lewis were apparently well established by the 1790 
Census, each having two children and owning several slaves, they 
were too old to be Mary's brothers, therefore, were probably her 
uncles. Since Charles Lewis, who also fought in the Revolutionary 
War, was born in 1761, he has to be a son of JOHN LEWIS. Henry 
and Hercules Lewis are not found in other records other than the 
1790 Census, where they were living in the same vicinity with 
other Lewis families. 

One researcher stated that she had strong indication that 
Julius C, was Julius Charles, and that David J. was David John, 
therefore, these two sons are duplicated in the records.

ABEL LEWIS 19 or 39-6 b. ca. L750 Va. d. probably before 1777 

m. MARY She married 2nd-ca. 1777 Jesse Berry d. by 

1790 

Children: 

19-1 Abel Lewis, Jr. b. ca. 1770 

-2 MARY "SALLIE" LEWIS 9 b. 4-29-1773 d. 4-25-1863 
m. THOMAS ROBINSON JR 7 (See page 57) 

ABEL apparently died early in his marriage. According to 
family tradition, his daughter MARY ROBINSON had no recollection 
of him, but did fondly remember her stepfather, a Jesse Berry. 
She named her first son Abel Lewis Robinson. She named another 
son JESSE BERRYMAN ROBINSON and made a lovely quilt which she 
gave to this son, to be given to each suceeding son named 
Jesse Berryman. The quilt was destroyed around 1948, when a 
fire burned down the house of Jesse Berryman Robinson III. 
The author remembers this beautiful quilt and how my mother 
used it as a showpiece for company. 

The stepfather, Jesse Berry, died before 1790, for the 
Census of that year recorded Mary Berry as head of a family 
living adjacent to several Lewis families which were her 
brothers-in-law. Her family consisted of four boys and two 
girls, indicating that she had additional children by either 
ABEL, or more likely by Jesse Barry.

THE WHATLEY FAMILY IN GEORGIA 

There was a significant number of Whatley families that moved to Wilkes 
County, Ga. early in its settlement. They were unquestionably related, 
although I have been unable to establish their specific connections. They 
settled within sixty miles of each other, most within thirty, apparently 
arriving there around 1784. 

The following are the first Whatleys that were recorded in Wilkes Co. 

Michael 1788 - 1786 

Samuel 1794 - 1779 Son of William 

Wills 1785 

John 1785 

Oman 1785

Mc Commack Co, S. C. tn. ca. 1725 

JOHN was a 3 urveyor, a trade which he taught to his sons as four of 
them are known to have also been surveyors. He probably lived in Hanover 
Co., Va., as a John and Shirley Whatley were recorded there as surveyors.

200 acres. He also received additional land grants in 1784 and 1785, all on 
the South Fork of Little River, totalling more than 1,000 acres. He married 
ELIZABETH EDWARDS probably in Wilkes Co., Ga. He died in Greene Co., Ga. 
probably in 1807, leaving four minor children. 

ELIZABETH had two illegitimate sons, Laxla and Berry, to whom she gave the

ANCESTORS OF ELIZABETH EDWARDS 53 
WIFE OF ORNAN WHATLEY §1 

The Edwards Family has probably been more thoroughly researched than 
any family in the United States. The reason for all this effort was 
a share in a potential fortune for the heirs of one Thomas Edwards, who was 
the lessor of a substantial tract of land on Manhattan Island, New York City, 
Organizations of Edwards Heirs arose to legally prosecute their claim to 
this land. One of the most extensive histories of the family and this 
ground lease is from the research efforts of Mr. J. T. Sadler of Lafayette, 
Ala. Mr. Sadler became so convinced of the validity of his claim that he 
sold his family farm and spent the remainder of his life traveling and 
collecting data on the Edwards Heirs. He became an accomplished geneologist: 
and in my- opinion his data has proven to be accurate and superior to that of 
other researchers. The following summary of the Edwards Lease is from 
a letter Mr. Sadler sent in 1925 to the Georgia-Alabama Organization of 
Edwards' Heirs. 



127 



THE EDWARDS ESTATE 

SOME FACTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE SAME NOT HERETOFORE MADE KNOWN 

As there Is a great deal being said at present in the newspapers 
concerning the Edwards estate and many wild and extravagant statements are 
being made as these statements are misleading and tend to confuse rather than 
inform the public, I feel called upon to give what I believe to be a correct, 
though brief statement of the matter. 

From a large correspondence, extending over several years, and fro« 
information gained by visiting and consulting older members of the Edwards 
connection, I am able to make the following statement: 

Along about 1750 three Edwards brothers, Thomas, Henry, and Edward 
came to this country from England. In 1771 Thomas Edwards bought from the 
Indians an unsettled claim on 50,000 acres of land lying along the Hudson 
River in the State of New York, and in payment for services rendered the 
English government during the French and Indian wars, the crown acknowledged 
the claim and made to Thomas Edwards absolute title. At the beginning of 
the Revolutionary War, Thomas Edwards, although very old was active in 
supporting the English Government and became personally responsible for a 
large amount of wheat bought in New York for the British Army. 

About this time he died and Robert Edwards, his oldest, administered 
on the estate. After the close of the war; order having been restored, 
Robert leased certain property in New York City for 99 years to settle claims 
against the estate. The lease was made to Aaron Burr and was dated in 1739, 
After holding the property for 33 years, Burr sub-leased it to New York City 
for 66 years. The records show that the conditions of the lease were taafc at 
the expiration of the 99 years, the property, with all improvements was to 
revert to the decendants of Thomas Edwards. 

The property so leased is described as follows: 

Beginning at a point on the Hudson River, then down the river, 
taking in part of Long Island, then to the Bowry, then up to Canal 
Street to Broad Street, taking in Trinity and St. Peters Churches, 
then to point of beginning. This tract is said to contain somewhere 
between 75 and 100 acres and its assessed valuation at the expiration 
of the lease in 1886 was, as I am told by a prominent real estate 
agent in New York, $312,000,000.00. 

Since the lease expired, the decendents of Thomas Edwards, have been 
trying to come together and collect the necessary proof to establish their 
right and recover the property. 



128 



I am told that the New York City authorities have acknowledged the 
claim and parties in a position to know the present status of the matter 
are quite confident of a favorable settlement indeed so strong is confidence 
in recovering this property, that brokers and speculators are offering 
to buy the interest of any of the heirs who are willing to sell. 

A great deal more might be said, were I attempting to write a complete 
history of the property especially concerning the English law of Proraogenture 
and other colonial customs which obtained many years ago, but are now obsolete. 

I think that I have said enough to place the matter plainly before any 
one interested. 

I will now give a brief statement of Thomas Edwards' children and 
grandchildren: 

Thomas Edwards had five sons and one daughter. They were Robert, 
John, William, Solomon, Thomas, and Frankie. 

It has been said that Robert never married. This is a mistake; he 
married late in life, and had three children. They were Reuben Nathaniel, 
John Crawford, and Rebecca, a daughter. Robert and his wife both died 
leaving these children in minority and their Uncle William Edwards became 
their guardian. The decendants of these children are scattered over Virginia, 
North and South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio and there is one in Canada. 

John Edwards settled in Virginia, Culpepper County, and died there. His 
will is recorded at Culpepper Court House. I have in my possession a copy ox 
his family record. His children were Betty, Joseph, John, Mary, Thomas, Sarah, 
and William. Some of the decendants of these children are now in Virginia 
and some in Kentucky and some in South Carolina. 

William Edwards settled in Virginia, but some time after the 
Revolutionary War, moved to North Carolina and died there. He had seven 
children, John, Joseph, Sally, Jarrett, Stratton, Jesse, and Ambrose. Some 
of these married in Virginia, but later on moved west. Their decendants 
are mostly in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee. 
Sally married Ambros Daniel, and settled in Fairfield County, South Carolina. 
I have not been able to gather any reliable information concerning Solomon 
Edwards, however, I think he went to Kentucky and from there his decendants 
scattered over Ohio, Indiana, and the West. Thomas Edwards, Jr., settled 
in South Carolina on South Tiger River. Some of his decendants reside in 
the same locality, others went west before the Civil War. Miss Frankie 
Edwards married Isiah Wickliffe and settled in Greenville, South Carolina on 
a lot where the United States Court House now stands. Frankie had only two 
children, William and Lucy. Miss Lucy married John J. Stokes. 



129 



Later generations might be mentioned, but the bounds assigned this 
statement is already reached, and I will only say further that my Mother, 
Mrs. Sarah Sadler, who was married to George W. Sadler in Edgefield, S. C. 
on August 7th, 1884, is a great granddaughter of Thomas Edwards, and 
granddaughter of William Edwards and daughter of Jarrett Edwards. To this 
union were born six children: J. T. Sadler, Harriet Griffin, Mary A. Lindsey, 
Joicy F. Sargent, G. W. Sadler and R. C. Sadler. 

The foregoing statements are made from data in my hands and are intendted 
to aid any of the Edwards' decendants into whose hands they may come. Anyana 
who may be able to trace relationship to any of the mentioned Edwards can 
easily establish a claim to a part of this estate.

THOMAS EDWARDS 431 b. ca. 1700 England d. ca. 1775, New York 
THOMAS came to America ca. 1745. THOMAS was born In England, depending 
upon which researcher one quotes, in 1682, 1715, or 1720, but most 
probably around 1700. Sadler says THOMAS came to America with his 
borthers Henry and Edward, while Clarke states he came with his sons 
Robert, John and Ambrose. These statements do not conflict as he might 
have come with two brothers and three sons. Both Sadler and Clarke 
state THOMAS was a minister of the Church of England from Yorkshire, 
England and that he came to America around 1745 - 1750 and settled in 
New York. 

THOMAS either purchased or was granted substantital acreage on 
Manhanttan Island, a claim that was recognized by the British for 
services he rendered in the French-Indian War. He was a Tory and 
allegedly supplied wheat to the Royal Army during the early days of 
the Revolutionary War. Upon his death, his substantital estate was 
administered by his son, John Edwards, who made the famous Edwards 
lease of New York City land to Aaron Burr.

Robert lived in New York where he accumulated much property. He 
may have been a Royalist. After the Revolutionary War, he administered 
his fathers estate for which he executed the famous 99 year land lease 
to Aaron Burr. Clarke states Robert returned to England permanently and 
never married. Sadler states he returned from England, married, had 
three children, which lived as minors after his death with his brother 
William.

He had substantital interests in farming, milling, distilling, shipping, 
tobacco and slaves, and lived and entertained in great comfort. 

He first married Wealthean Butler. He then married the widow, 
Mrs. Henry "Barbara" Finch. A premarriage agreement was filed in the 
King William Co. Court House on 12-22-1800, in which his second wife 
Barbara was to have no part of Ambrose's estate. His will was dated in 
December, 1810, and proved in Court in January 1811.

AMBROSE was born probably in Maryland between 1740 - 46, but 
possibly in Virginia. He moved with his parents to Culpepper Co., Va.

before moving to Georgia around 1784. He was first listed in the 
Wilkes Co., Ga., Tax List in 1785 as having 2 1/2 polls, 3 slaves, 
and 551 acres. Also listed on the Tax Rolls was his brother, John, 
from whose estate in 1787 he was reimbursed for medical expenses 
paid to Dr. Anthony Poullain for visits to his brother John. AMBROSE 
appeared to have some connections with Montgomery Co., N. C. 

He ultimately settled in a portion of Wilkes Co., Ga., that was 

to become Jones Co. He died there in 1823.

ANCESTORS OF ELIZABETH MURRAY 29 
WIFE OF JOHN EVANS 7± 

Records in Georgia indicate that the family's first Murray ancestor 
in Georgia may have been a David Murray, Sr., who died in Wilkes County, Ga. 
in 1796-97. His wife, Elizabeth is mentioned in legal records as well as 
a David, Jr., William, Jean, Pauline and Thomas Murray, which are believed 
to be related to David Murray, Sr. There is no proof that this David Murray, Sr, 
is the father of the following David Murray, Jr., but they were in the same 
locality and of proper age. 

DAVID MURRAY 59 b. 1760 Prince Edward Co., Virgina d. 11-8-1840 
Talladega Co., Alabama m. ca. MARY WALTON 6_L (dau. of THOMAS WALTON, JR.) 

DAVID was born in 1760 in Virginia. He enlisted in the Continental Army 
of Virginia on Dec. 30, 1776, and served as a private in Capt. Satterlees 1 
Company, Col. Moses Hazen's Regiment. He was taken prisoner by the British 
but later escaped and returned to his Company Aug. 4, 1779. He was discharged 
by the Commander-in-Chief on June 17, 1783. 

He moved from Prince Edward Co., Va., shortly after the Revolutionary War, 
locating in Wilkes Co., Georgia. He was recorded in Lincoln Co., Ga. by 1790. 
It is not known when he moved to Alabama. 

He died in Talladega Co., Ala. His tombstone there is inscribed, "David 
Murray, A Revolutionary Soldier who departed this life the 8th day of Nov. 1840 
in the 80th year of his age."

On this 24th day of June A. D. 1852 before me a Justice of the Inferior 
Count of said county personally appeared Asa Cox aged seventy six (76) years 
passed, a resident of the county and state aforesaid, who after being duly 
sworn according to law doth upon his oath make the following statements. That 
at the time of his earlist recollection he was living in Halifax County, North 
Carolina. That this was in time of the Revolutionary War. That his father, 
Cary Cox, and his brother, William Cox, were engaged in said war. That he has 
no recollection of the time when his father and said brother went into the 
service, but he remembers distinctly that his father got wounded and came home 
and that when his mother talked a great deal about his said brother William who 
still remained in service after the return of his father as stated above, and he 
remembers his mother said that his said brother was fighting for liberty, against 
the Tories and British. That he does not know what officers his said brother 
served under nor what time he went into service, but that he continued in 
service until peace was made. That he remembers clearly when his said brother 
came home. That he talked much about the hardships that he and his fellow 
soldiers had endured. And deponant further states that about the year 1788 
himself and his fathers family moved from North Carolina to Edgefield District 
South Carolina that about two or three years after this his said brother 
William Cox also moved from N. Carolina to said District South Carolina, where 
he lived a few years and moved to Pendleton District in said State, where he 
remained until about the year 1822 when he moved to Habersham County, Georgia 
where he remained until his death which occurred on the 21st day of March 1848, 
as he had been credibly informed and verily believed. 

And he swares that he is a disinterested witness, (signed) Asa Cox

hereby certify that the deponant Asa Cox is well known to me, that he is a highly

believe he is of the age above stated.

D. CHURCH RECORDS 

BAPTIST CHURCH 
WILKES CO., AND WARREN CO., GA. 

The Baptist Church of Christ at Williams Creek was constituted Dec. 22, 1787 
at the headwaters of Williams Creek of Little River in that section of Wilkes Co., 
which became Warren Co., by the Act of 1793. It was associated with Powell's 
Creek Church (Powellton Baptist Church), Fulsom Creek Church (The Church of 
Horeb), and churches at Phillips Mill, Long Creek, and Whatley's Mills. Since 
minutes of the Powellton Church of 1793 include excommunications of members for 
"having broken communion with the General Baptist", it is assumed that all of 
these churches were under control of the "Particular Baptist" who had accepted 
Calvinist learnings and became most prominent in the Carolinas in the latter 
half of the eighteenth century. The minutes of Williams Creek Church for 
Jan. 9, 1796 also included the administration "...if any member of the church 
join the Free Masons he is to be excommunicated." 

The following items relative to the Cox family was extracted from the minutes 
of the Baptist Church of Christ at Williams Creek. 

Feb. 7. 1795 - Received Carey Cox and Mary his wife by letter. 

May 9. 1795 - Carey Cox one of those appointed as helps to Powell's Creek Church, 

June 12. 1795 - Ichabod Cox and Mary his wife were received by letter. 

An alphabetical list of members on page 25 obviously added to and crossed 
out for a number of years indicates that Catherine Cox was excommunicated. 



154 



Jan. 7. 1797 - A matter between brother Cox and James Henderson laid over 
until next conference, and William Lovel requested to attend as a witness. 

March 11. 1797 - Brother Cox matter laid over until our next conference. 

A pril 8. 1797 - Ditto above. 

May 13. 1797 - Brother Cox came forward and made satisfaction respecting 
the charge laid against him by James Henderson and was restored to fellowship. 

Jan. 1800 - Ordered that Brother Williams cite Brother Cox to attend our 
next conference. 

22 Feb. 1800 ' - After Brother Cox and Sister Cox were cited to attend, they 
made choice of certain brothren to attend at a convenient place and hear them 
both, which they did, and after hearing the nature of the case difference, We 
Judge them both to be very much to blame, and that Sister Cox's complaint 
established. A report being made to the church, the church declares an un- 
fellowship with them in such a standing. 

Jan. 23. 1802 - Sister Cox restored to fellowship. 

June 25. 1802 - Some of the members being dissatisfied with the restoration 
of Sister Cox, and as such have no fellowship with her in her present standing 
and is hereby ordered out of our fellowship. 

May 21. 1803 - Received a charge against Brother Heflin for being seen at a 
certain time drunk at Asa Cox's. 



155 



March 15. 1806 - Mary Cox restored to fellowsnip after she made acknowledgment 
which satisfied the church. 

Dec. 20. 1806 - Brother Cox, his wife and mother requested to be dismissed. 

August 15. 1807 - Brother Carey Cox came forward and made acknowledgement to 
the church respecting his former conduct with his wife and was restored to 
fellowship and granted a letter of dismission. 

Baptist Church at Long Creek. List of members for period 1799-1812 
includes #156 Martha Cox, with the notation that she died. 

CARY COX, SR. seemed to have a considerable difference of opinion with 
the members of the Baptist Church of Christ at Williams Creek. The nature 
of his transgressions are unknown, however, it is family tradition that he 
was far minded and very tolerant, especially for a Primative Baptist Minister. 

Also mentioned were his brother, Asa Cox, wife MARY HORNE COX, and mother, 
MARTHA COX.

The following was written by one of his nieces and found in the 
records of HELEN COX ROBINSON 2. 

"Dr. Wade Chappel Cox, son of Colonel Bartley Martin Cox, and 
his wife Sarah Elizabeth Cox, was born in Putnam Co., Ga., enlisted 
in the Confederate Service from Mitchell Co., Ga. Being a noted 
Physician, he was left at home as a Home Guard and often the only 
Physician in the County. Like his father, he was an upright and 
honorable man, not only serving the people as Physician, but often 
spending nights and days nursing desperate cases. His sister, Sarah 
Elizabeth (my Mother) was his right hand in helping to nurse and fight 
disease and sickness among the poor and needy. Dr. Cox was loved and 
honored by all who knew him for his wise and tender ministrations. 
He was graduated at the New York Medical College, took special 
courses in London, Paris and Vienna. 

On one occasion, Mr. Calvin Bullard returned from the front during 
the war on a sick furlough, calling in Dr. Cox, he was found to have 
smallpox. Naturally, all the family connections had visited the 
brother and son to see and hear the news from the front. Dr. Cox 
immediately quarantined those who had been exposed and with the help 
of those members of the family who were able, nursed them all through 
a long seige of that dreaded disease, "Smallpox." 



167 



"His Father, Colonel Bartley M. Cox, had prepared baskets of food 
every day and placed It on a stump near the Bullard home. Dr. Cox 
would take the food into the family (no negroes were allowed on the 
place), four of the eleven who had smallpox died and were buried in 
graves dug by slaves near the house. They were wrapped in quilts 
and sheets and placed in their graves by Dr. Cox and members of the 
family. Colonel Bartley Martin Cox's daughter, Sarah Elizabeth, was 
the only woman to capture a Yankee Soldier single handed and turn 
him over to the Confederate Officers, like a true Southern Patriot, 
She surprised one of Stoneman's Raiders while drinking from her 
spring one day, and made him march to the turn of her rifle pointed 
in his direction." 

After the death of his first wife, Martha Pearson, he lived with 

Samuel Pearson.

Mrs. Richard Allen Beauchamp io-2-2-2-2-2-l joined 
D. A. R. Nat. #168264 on Abraham Cox b-1736 Va. Her paper 
states he died in Wilkes Co., Ga., although his will was 
written in Faquier Co., Va. His son Zachariah Cox moved to 
Wilkes Co., Ga., and as he was Administrator of his father's 
estate, a copy of the Will was filed in Wilkes Co., Ga. The 
Wilkes Co., and Jones Co., Georgia, Coxes are not the same 
family, although they could be kin, and the names of children 
of Abraham Cox and CARY COX are similar. Because of these 
erroneous papers, the D. A. R. rejected several member 
application based upon CARY COX. According to Mrs. Beauchamp 's 
papers, Abraham Cox d. 1799 m. 1757 Va. to Sallie Cox b. 1739 
d. 1797; they had John b. 1760, Thomas, William and Sarah.

ARTICLE ON ICHABOD COX 16-3 

The following article is from "Troup Couuty History" by Clifford Smith. 

"In 1857 Ichabod Cox was President of the La Grange Female Seminary. This 
was considered a Baptist College as it was founded in 1842 by Rev. John 
E. Dawson, a Baptist Minister. When Ichabod Cox took over in 1857, 
the name was changed to Cox College. It had been under several names 
before Mr. Cox took over. He served thirty years as President, during 
this period he established it on a going basis. 

During the Civil War the buildings were taken over as a hospital 
for the soldiers. Sometime afterward, the buildings were destroyed by 
fire and Dr. Cox had them rebuilt and refurni&ued. In 1878 a new site on 
Church Street was selected and the Chapel was erected in 1887. This was 
a monument to the generosity of Dr. Cox and the people of La Grange. 

In 1887 during commencement week, Dr. Cox died with a stroke, but he 
had left the College free from debt and well equipped with modern appliances 
and handsome buildings. His wife, Mrs. Mary S. Cox, succeeded him as 
President for a time, then their son, Charles C. Cox became President. 

In 1895 they decided to move the college to College Park, Ga., near 
Atlanta. Dr. William E. Cox, after graduating from Cornell University, 
returned to La Grange and became business manager. After the death of 
Dr. Charles Cox, his brother, Dr. William Cox became President and served 
the College nearly fifty years, dying 12 November 1938. 

In 1941 the College was in trouble but the loyal backing of the Alumnae 
and the Professors and parents of students together, assured the college 
would be conducted and maintained in such a fashion as to deserve and have 
a distinction and servicable place among the educational instructions of 



192 



Georgia. (The college ultimately closed) 

Dr. Cox was unmarried, but he was survived by his sister-in-law, Mrs, 
Charles C. Cox, two neices, Mrs. Alice Cox Reim, of College Park, and 
Mrs. M. N. Henry of Los Angeles, California. Also, two nephews, W. L. 
Stanton and Frank Stanton of Washington State."

the State of Mississippi, as trustee for the said Thomas Cox, as far as 
relates to the above named boy. 

6 Item 

My will and desire that my daughter Matilda Griffin and Isabelle Hill 

shall have a lifetime estate in the amount that each one shall receive

CODICIL TO THE ABOVE 
Harris County, in the State of Georgia, in the name of God, A-rien. 

I, Asa Cox, of the County and State afore said being feeble in body 



197 



but sound in mind, having thought proper Lj add to my last will and 

Testament this Codicil, embracing the following items to wit: 

Item 1st 

For as much as I, Asa Cox, did about the first of March last, give as 

a present fifty dollars to my children hereinafter named; Cary Cox, 

James Cox, Jesse Cox, Matilda Griffin, Isabella Hill, Mariah Dorman, 

Elizabeth Maynor and Mary Barnes. My will is that my other two sons 

William Cox and Thomas Cox of the State of Mississippi shall each receive 

the sum of fifty dollars out of my estate making them equal with my 

other children. 

Item 2nd 

In my last Will and Testament, I, Asa Cox, gave to my daughter, Isabella 

Hill, over and above an equal share in my estate One Hundred Dollars, but 

being dissatisfied, I have thought proper to give to the said Isabella 

Hill One Hundred Dollars more, making in all, two hundred dollars, which 

I leave in the hands of my sons James and Jesse Cox and Trustees for the 

said Isabella. The object of the above sum is to purchase for the said 

Isabella a home after my death and to further give to the said Isabella 

my buggy and also thirty dollars annually for her care of me. All of 

the above I give to the said Isabella Hill over and above an equal share 

in my estate, because she, the said Isabella, has broken up and taken 

care of me and my interest while I have been unable to take care of 

myself when all of my other children have been taking care of their own 

interest. 

This the 28th day of August in the year of our Lord one thousand eight 

hundred fifty seven. 

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my Seal, 
TEST: Asa Cox

The following is from Jesse's obituary printed in the Columbus, 
Ga. newspaper on Feb. 26, 1898: 

TO THE MEMORY OF HON. JESSE COX 

The subject of this sketch was born in Jones county, Ga., October 
25, 1815, therefore he was in his eighty-third year. He was reared 
on a farm and received only a limited edv ation. Early in life he 
removed to Muscogee county where he resided a few years. Then he 
removed to near Mulberry Grove, Harris county, where he had resided 
for more than forty years, and was a prosperous and progressive 
farmer. Before the war he had accumulated a large property, mostly 
negroes, however, which of course he lost besides sustaining other 
serious losses. Beginning almost from the start again after the war 
he had by energy, industry, sobriety and good management partially 
regained his losses, and ever since had enjoyed a competency. 

He died Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, after an illness of five 
weeks with kidney trouble. 

He had been a member of the Missionary Baptist church for about 
sixty-eight years, and was a conscientious and devoted Christian. 



210 



He was^for many years a member of Kivj.i.n Lodge of Masons of Harris 
county and was a prominent and faithful member of the order. In 
1878-79 he represented Harris county in the Legislature and served 
his constituents faithfully and conscientiously, and could have 
served them longer had he so desired. He had been a justice of the 
peace for over forty years. In all the relations indicated here 
he was a faithful, true and honorable man. He had reared a large 
family of children, the majority of whom survive him. He was twice 
married. His last wife had no children. She is the aunt of the 
writer's wife. One sister, Mrs. Mary Barnes, of Harris county, 
preceded him to the grave about two weeks. He leaves a wife, one 
sister, (Mrs. Maria Dorman, of Notasulga, Ala., ) seven children 
and a large n umb er of grand-children, relatives and friends to mourn 
his death. His children are Mrs. Annie Horn of Bridgeport, Ala., 
Mrs. Narcissa Binns and Mrs. Carrie Martin, of Harris county, Mrs. 
Exa Cunningham, of Troup county, Wm. J. Cox, of Grapevine, Texas, 
John J. Cox and Virgil A. Cox, of this city.

m. 1794 Edmund Dismukes b. 1757 Va. d. 1829 Jones Co., Ga. 

In the estate records of Edmund Dismukes, all of the said children 
are mentioned except Betheny C., while an additional minor child named 
Caroline is mentioned. In the will of his wife, Betheny Cox Dismukes, 
she names no Caroline, but does name a Betheny C. as being one of her 
five youngest children. From this I deduce that the daughters name was 
Betheny Caroline.

John E. Lloyd) b. 10-6-1804 Ga. d. 1-14-1860 Greenville, Ala. 

The following is from Owen's "Dictionary of Alabama 
Biography" 

"Under Pres. Buchanan's administration Benjamin Lloyd was receiver 

of the land office of the United States in Greenville. He was a Major 

in the Indian Wars of 1812. The author of Primative Baptist Hymns 

wrote, collected, classified and set in order songs of all Divine Worshi 

He married Naomi Ann Cox, daughter of Rev. Cary Cox, Jr., and 

Martha Rountree Cox of Eatonton, Ga. (The Rountrees were a 

prominent family of Edgefield Dist., S. C.) Benjamin and Naomi 

Lloyd had 19 children." 

The following is from "History of Coosa County," the 
Department of Archives and History, Montgomery, Ala. 

"Rev. Benjamin Lloyd, Coosa Co., has been the home of men who 
have taken places of distinction in the Ministry. Rev. Benjamin 
Lloyd lived for many years in Coosa. He was a minister of the 
Primative Baptist Denomination. He was a man of medium size and 
carrying a face that would strike the beholder as denoting 
intelligence, refinement and a gentle spirit. He was much above 
most Ministers - in education. He was a compiler and publisher of 
the "Primative Baptist Hymnal." Several of his sons became Ministers 
in good standing."

From a letter written 1955 to author by Mrs. Wyllamette Gale Will 
Jacksonville, Fla: 

"William Thomas, who married sisters d-1886 Albany, Daughterty Co., 
and is buried in Albany, Ga. before Narcissus who died in 1894. E 
have visited in their home many times and know all the family. Mfr 
Grandmother's third marriage to John Henry Pearson, a brother of £r 
Pearson sisters, and John Henry Pearson, Jr., my half uncle, marri.^ 
his double first cousin, Hallie Rebecca Cox, (dau. of Wm. T. and Aa. 
Martha, 2nd wife). So you see, my closeness to that family is why- 
am so positive in my knowledge of them. Then, too, the above date; 



258 



are found in the family Bible of Wm. T. Cox. I do not have a record 
of a son, Wm. Cox, who lived in Lumkin Co., Ga., who was a son of Wm. 
Cox b-1762 in Va., and a Rev. Sol from Halifax, N. C. The oldest 
child of Cary Cox, Sr., also a Rev. Sol from Halifax, N. C. m- 
Mary Home in Va., his son Wm. was born in Va. and came to Halifax, 
N. C. 1762, 'a babe in arms' as he stated when he and his brother, 
Jesse, joined him in N. C. for his pension S-8225."

Notasulga, Macon Co., Ala. m. ELIZABETH MOORE 6. b. 9-12-1804 
Greene Co., Ga. d. 9-16-1882 Bell Co., Texas. 

The following narratives are taken from the records of, and 
the stories told by, HELEN EVELYN COX ROBINSON, a daughter of WILLIS 
and ELIZABETH COX. 

"Willis Cox married Elizabeth Moore in Monroe Co., Ga., about 
nine miles south of Forsythe. They lived in Putnam Co., Ga. four 
miles from Stanfordville, Talbotton, and then moved to Harris Co., G« 
where they operated a mill on the Mulberry Creek. In 1832, while s:- 
living in Harris Co., he had a store on the south side of the Saug2n 
Creek near Moss' Ford on Bulger Branch, in what is now Tallapoosa Co, 
Ala. In 1834 they moved to Russel Co., Ala., three miles from wher-> 
Salem was later built. They ran from the Indians on May 9, 1836 and wiM 
to grandfather Spencer Moore's home in Monroe Co., Ga., where they 
stayed for six months. On May 25, 1836, Willis volunterred at CoLi-mbus, 
Ga., for service against the Creek Indians. He served as a private 
until July 25, 1836, under Capt. Henry Minims, and Coi. James Bell. 
In 1837 he moved to a place on the Little Saugahatchie Creek in Macon 
Co. now Lee Co., Ala. Here he lived and died." 



260 



"My Father, Willis Cox, was born in 1801 and died in 1872. He was only 
five feet and ten inches in stature, and though onnll physically, was of gres . 
will, power and strength of character. 

He bought and sold lands, thereby making the most of his property. In LEj 
he was living in what is now Russel County, about three miles from the present 
site of Salem. He had an opportunity of selling the land he was living on 
provided he could give immediate possession, but houses were scarce and he had 
to have a place for his family. 

In that part of the country at that time was a large family of half-bre=. 
Indians named Ben or Jim Marshall, who sold Father his home place. There wa_- 
only a double log house on the land, but Father decided to move into it and 
live in one end of the double log house with the Indian family in the other 
until better arrangements could be made. 

The Indian was friendly, but to my Mother, they were all just Indians. 
Things went on smoothly until one afternoon Jim came to the house very much 
excited, exclaiming, "I am a dead man, Cox-ee; I'm a dead man." He then 
explained that one of his brothers had been murdered, and he intended to kill 
the murderer, and this murderer's brother would kill him, then one of Marshall, 
would kill his slayer, and thus continue as long as any men were left of the 
two families. 

This was the custom of the tribe — the next of kin was the executioner. 
Jim took his gun and my father followed him into the woods while my mother 
waited at home in suspense and fear. It took my father a long time to comrim-. 
the Indian that it was all unnecessary, that he did not have to kill an India--, 
and then be killed himself; that the law of the United States would punish the 
murderer. All that was necessary, urged my father, was to have the murderer 
arrested and tried. 

261 



This was done, and the murderer was executed together with two other men 
at Columbus, Ga.,-the first execution of the kina ever knovn in that part of 
the country. 

Jim Marshall always claimed that my father saved his life."

LETTERS TO WILLIS COX AND HIS WIFE 
ELIZABETH COX, FROM THEIR SON, WILLIAM 
AUGUSTUS HOLT COX, DURING THE MEXICAN 
AND THE CIVIL WAR. 



270 



_ In Mexico, 1848 

(First page of letter not legible) 

When you write you must direct your letter to me, 1st Ala. 
Bat. Volunteers, Co. D. Capt. Lomase. Lieut. Hardaway is 
still acting Adjutant Major. 

The Mexicans are very much like the Indians, they can tote 
from 2 to 5 hundred lbs on their backs, at this time a load for 
a pack mule is two whiskey barrell _r 1 bale of cotton. I 
want you to show this to all of my friends and relatives in 
the settlement around and give my respects to all inquiring 
friends. 

I have a very excellent Captain, but I do not like 
Lieut. Copeland. Lieut. Hardaway gave me this paper. I know 
a few words in Spanish. I must quit. 

Your most obt. son, 
W. H. Cox 

P. S. Show this to James Kelley and write as soon as you 
receive it. 

Yours, 

W. H. Cox 



271 



— Orizava, Mexico 

March 28, 1848 

Dear Father, 

I received yours dated the 10th of Feb. with great satisfaction and now 
commence to answer it. I am well at this time and have been ever since I 
landed in Mexico with a little exception of cold, etc. You inquired in yours 
of Uncle Green and W. Dickerson, I heard Uncle Green & Wiley both at Sanwon 
about a month after he arrived of the diorea which is very fatal in Mexico 
particular at Sanwon and on the National road there is some sickness in 
camps, at this time we have lost 3 of our men since we left Mobile, 1 by the 
name of Wiggins of Henry City & Vickers & Bradley of the same County. 

I do not know of what disease. Old Mr. Mergowen brought me word from 
Uncle Green & said he was as hearty as he ever saw a man. You may tell 
Aunt Mary that the letter she gave me for Uncle I kept it until I wore it out 
in my knapsack & had no chance to send it to him as I am on one road to the 
city & he on another. So there is no chance of communication between us. 
It is hardly necessary for me to say that I have not received a letter from 
home since I left there except the one I answer now. You stated if I wanted 
money to write for it, I thank you for your proposition, but I do not need 
and if I did there is ten chances to one whether I would ever receive it or 
not in a letter for the mail is so irregular. So I just ask you to take care 
of what little I have there for me until I come home, if I ever do. There is 
a great talk of peace in camps, but I think it is mostly conjectures. The 



272 



boys are getting dissatisfied. Some of th^m on account of our fare it is 
bad & composed of Sugar & coffee & Beef .ind Bread. It is light flour bread. 
You may tell Ma that I have not gotten tired of flour bread yet. I am very 
well satisfied -nyself as yet. Mr. Carrol is well with the exception of his 
finger and it is not sore to hurt. He says that he wants some bacon and 
greens & that he wants you to write oftener. I am very glad to hear that 
you have caught the merderers of Mr. Yancy. Tell Mr. Rea that my boots are 
worn out. I shall have to buy of the Mexicans. Mr. Carrol says that Wra. 
Todd was to pay him $4.50 cts for the use of the tools that he had in his 
possession when we left there. I am sorry to hear that Mr. Martin is dead. 
I have heard that Edward Bayzor was dead for which I was very sorry to hear. 
The reason I did not receive your letters was that we left Mobile on the 
31st of Dec. and landed at Verra Cruz on the 7th of Jan/48. Mr. E. D. 
Croft is in good health at this time and indeed all of the Riddle Squad, 
except Mr. Dirden, Mr. Willton and John Dickson. Mr. Dickson is not very 
bad off I do not think, the rest we left at Verra Cruz. 
Description of the Country. 

The country from Verra Cruz towards this place is almost an entire 
perrarie with a few small bushes which is called the Shaperell & it is 
almost entirely level with a few slough after having passed over some 40 
miles of the ways we came to the Mountains which seemed to be a bank of greer. 
trees as it is warm all of the time here, '-hough it is pleasant. When we 



273 



came to the mountains, we crossed a river and the bridge was about 125 
feet high and built entirely of rock, after having crossed it the road was 
paved with rock and about 25 feet wide and run angling up the side of the 
mountain. Very often one side the mountain overhung us while on the other 
side was a precapice from 100 to 700 hundred feet. After passing this, we 
came to another perrarie of about ten miles, I suppose, and then to a littLe 
town about as large as Tuskeegee though not so handsome though in a beautiful 
place. We staid there 3 days and then moved on for Arizava which is about 
15 miles. We took it without the firing of a gun, it is as large as Mobile 
and there are a great many more inhabitants. This place is the most beautiful L; 
situated I have ever seen. The mountains from 1 to 2 miles high are close ac 
hand all around it. The highest are caped with snow which adds to the scene , 
There are large creeks come out from the foot of them and the water is very 
clear and cool. There is some 10 or 20 Churches in this place. As I have 
neither paper nor time, I must quit and bid you adieu. 

Yours most obt. 
W. H. A. Cox

Feb. 18, 1862 



Dear Father, 

I write to inform you that I am well and trust that this may reach you 
and find all well. There is very little news although the 

news from Tenn. is very discourageing. We learn by telegraph that the federals 
has whipt us badly at fort Donalson and taken many Prisinors. Two Regiments 
left this place two days ago for Knoxville to Reinforce Gen. Johnson. Gen. 
Gloadeur, who has Command here still thinks we will have a fight. We have 
drawn our arms, they are Smoth Bore Muskets, so we are ready for them. 

I received a letter from home a few days ago. Gus was still having 
chills every other day. Elizabeth was not very well. It has rained here 
for three days incesantly and is likely to continue. The high water has 
cut off communications by land. Capt. Armstrong is very sick, I think of 
Typhoid fever but I will not send this until his case takes some regular 
Course, (evening) The Captain is much better. I have tried for a furlough 
and failed. We cannot even go to Mobile. I think that there is but little 
danger of a fight here. We expect to be ordered off but do not know yet. 

Feb. 19th, at night 
Captain Armstrong, I think, is better and he is going to the Hospital at 
Mobile tomorrow for a few days. We learn by telegraph that Nashville, Tenn., 
is in the hands of the Yankees. We are still awaiting the appearance of the 
Yankees and our officers seem to think that we will have a fight here yet, 
trust they would receive very warm tokens in the Shape of Blue pills if they 
were to come on us now. 

275 



Our men are anxious to meet them and the news we receive only serve to mate 
them more anxious . 

The health of our Regiment is much better than it has been. I think: 
now that the Capt.'s sickness is caused by colds. 

I received a letter from Ma yesterday and was glad to hear that she 
was improving. 

If I could have a few days I think I could raise some troops for the 
service though Ala. has never flinched yet, and I think she will turn out 
her 12 right soon. 

Write soon and let me know all the news Direcc as before. 

Your affectionate Son etc.

Dear Mother, 

I received your letter a few days ago and was glad to learn that you 
had improved and trust that this may find you in still better health. I 
wrote Pa a letter a few days since and suppose that you have Reed it ere 
this time. This leaves me well. You wrote in reference to sending me 
some things. If you wish to send them still, you will have to send them 
by express as it is impossible to get off on furloughs. So there will be 
no one passing soon who are soldiers. Mark the Box W. H. Cox, Co. T. 18 
Regt. care of Capt. Armstrong and it will come safe. Direct it to Mobile. 
We are still receiving some troops, and they have quit removing them 
from here, it is said that there is sixty five vessels at Shipisland and 
it is firmly believed that the Yankees will make a demonstration against 
Mobile this week. I am quite lonesome to as it is Sunday. You may set 
down lonesomeness as half the cause of this letter. 

Capt. Armstrong was improving when I last heard from him. I did not 
want him to go to the Hospital, but others thought it best for him to go. 
I think he will be up in a few days. I fear Sloan has written home and 
caused his parents to be uneasy, but I do not think there is any cause of 
uneasness. Our fare is not as good as it has been. Our Company has missed 
drawing any bacon or pork for three weeks. We can draw salt beef, but 
the men wont have it. We draw pickle pork every other week, we have pretty 
plenty of meal, flour, rice, syrup, etc., but without meat it is pretty hard 
at any time. My shoes are about worn out. My paper is out and I must give 

out myself. 

Your affectionate son, 
Wm. H. Cox, 1st Sergt. Co. F.

Dear Father and Mother, 

I write to inform you that I am well and trust that this may find you 
all well. The reason I wright this so soon is that I have just learned that 
we are ordered away from here and will start in a few days to Corrinth, Miss., 
I suppose. And if Ma has not sent those things she spoke of to me she had 
better not send them as it is doubtful whether I get them or not. 

Capt. Armstrong is still in Mobile in the Hospital. We have had the 
worst storm here last night I most ever saw. It blew down nearly every 
house and those that were not blown the tops were blown off. There was 
one man killed. He was a guard at the Hospital and was killed by it falling 
on him, it was a large two storied building and there was about 200 men in it. 
A good many of the men was hurt but none of them died yet, if had been day 
time we should have had a good many killed. I think there was not a tent 
left standing and many of the troops who were in the tents were hurt, some 
of them badly. Our men are exulting a good deal at the news of our orders

Camp Near Corinth, Miss. 
May 15th, 1362 



Dear Parents, 

I write you again thinking that this may not be unimportant to you 
although it has been but a short while since I wrote. 

I am still well also Enas Haterway, Alex Moore, Willis Edwin are all 
well, so far as I can learn, though Enos was in the fight the other day at 
Forroingtons which was a small affair and I have not heard from him since. 
We are very closely kept in camp as we are looking for the fight to come 
off any day. The Federals are within two miles of our Line of intrichments 
advancing as it were feeling their way, our Pickets and out Posts are 
skirmishing nearly all the time and have been for two or three days and 
nights. The Yanks are advancing on thru different points slowly but very 
steadily making from ^ to 1 mile per day. We would not be surprised at any 
time hear the fight open. Our men caught one of them yesterday who says 
that they are 166,000 strong, which of course we do not believe. I do 
not know how many we have but I recon enough to entertain them. I learned 
today that they had sent in a flag for the purpose of exchangeing prisoners 
but cannot vouch for the report. I have just learned that one of the Lieuts. 
of our Co. who has been home that I ran from the Company at the Shiloh fight, 
but I could not look for more from a hog than a grunt. I was acting Commissary 
for the Regt. by order of Col. Shorter at the time and was not expected to 
engage in it, only by voluntering which I should have done indoubtedly from 
the fact that I had been on severe fatique duty for 36 hours and did not feel 
hardly able to stand alone. I remained in the rear and went to sleep as I had 



279 



not slept any for 36 hours and traveled all the time. Capt. Armstrong has 
been dropped from our Roll by order of some of our Leuts. and is now gone 
to Richmond to try to be reinstated. How he will come out I cannot say. 
There has been a boy about 18 hears old appointed over us. I do not know 
how he will do but suppose from appearance that he is a better chance than 
any of our Lieuts. The Company of course is not satisfied. I am now 
detached from the Company and have as little to do with it as possible, 
though the men seem anxious for me to return. I shall soon go back to the 
Company as I learn that there has been a man appointed commissary, but 
until he comes, I shall continue. I have to draw jeven Thousand Rations 
tomorrow and it is now late so I must close. Give my respects to all of 
the Reletives and friends. 

I am very much oblige to Ma for the presents sent by Mr. Goings, and 
sorry to learn that Pa was so unwell but trust ere this he is well again. 

Yours Af fectionally, 
Wm. H. Cox

Tupelo, Miss. 
July 5th, '62 



Dear Father & Mother, 

I again write to inform you that I am in good health and trust that 
this will reach you and find you well. 

I read a letter from home a few days ago and learned that my family 
was well and doing very well, or at least I had no complaint as to want, 
though I know my folks are needing or will be soon but think I can assist 
them soon, perhaps before they are entirely out. We were ordered paid at 
Corinth but have not yet received it, but shall bt able to send all of 
my money home as I have traded some and made at least expenses by swaping 
& selling Pistols and some other such trades. I now have some money on 
hand of my own besides Commissary money which I am oblige to keep. I am 
still at work in the Brigade Commissary department and shall remain at it 
until I am dismissed from it which I do not think will be soon. 

We learn that we have defeated Mc Clellans Army at Richmond, but do 
not yet know. You will learn the straight of it sooner than I will. 
Gen Chalmers left here the other day for Ripley, Tippots Co., and we 
learned we had a skirmish with the Feds who are said to be concentrating 
there or near there. Runners say that our men fought them there at Ripley 
yesterday and 5 or six Canon but the report needs confirmation. We expect 
to go daily to Ripley or some other point towards the State of Tenn. It is 
thought by those who ought to know that this army will invade Ky. or Tenn. 
and but upon what grounds I can't say. 

Write me often. I have but little time to write on account of business. 
I still am annoyed with Diarhea but it is so common that we disregard it in 

281 



camps as sickness. I walk a good deal and ray heel pesters me some, but 
I do not think it will discommode me much. I also have slight pains in 
my legs some times but think it caused by hard walks. I am anxious to 
hear from Walter since the hard fighting of the last few days but suppose 
he will write soon if he lives through the fight and is able. Our men have 
just fired thirteen guns in honor of the victory won at Richmond. 

Your affectionate son, 

W. H. Cox 

P. S. Direct your letter to Tupelo, Miss, care Capt. Thomason.

Camp Bulah (near MobLLe Ala.) 
Aug. 10th, 1862 



My dear parents, 

I according to promise, seat myself to write you a few lines which will 
inform you that I am very well at this tine. We left lalhello (?) on the 1st 
day of Aug. and a great many expected we would go to Chattanooga but our Regt:. 
had done so much Picket Duty since we got to Corinth that it was thought best 
to let us rest awhile, consequently we were left here but we have not gained 
much as our Regt. furnished fifty men per day as Provost Guard, which takes the 
whole of the Regt. in about six days. We have had other duties to perform besic 

It is four miles to Mobile so you see the walk is pretty heavy to get 
there. 

We are camped on the Spring Hill Rail Road, near Major Evans, who is 
the father of Augusta the author of the Book called "Bulah" which gives rise :j 
the name of the camp. Mis s Bulah, as the soldiers all call her, was in our 
camp yesterday evening with her father and three sisters. Perhaps it will no: 
be uninteresting to the girls to give a description of her (ie) Miss Bulah, 
she seems to be about 20 years of age, thin visage and is about as tall as Sisce 

Mary N. Black eyes and hair, (corner of letter torn off ) cut short. She 

looks pale fair skin if she was not so pale so quite intelligent bu~ 

does not look so Sisters look much more like authors than she does. 

She seem the oldest indeed there is but one other of them grown. 

We are pleasantly situated but it is so mighty hot here. I have been 
assigned to duty as second Lieutenant of the Company but have not got my 
commission yet. Col. Holteclaw requires all of the officers to uniform them- 
selves. I have bought mine, which cost me $115.00 for coat, pants, and hat, 
about 5 times what they ought to have cost but we all have to get them. 

2RT 



(Page 2) 

The uniform is gray Casimier. Swords but little better than mine, that is a 
little larger, sells for $50.00. I shall not buy one. I also have a sash 
which I picked up on the Shiloh Battlefield. My sword and sash will save me 
at least $80.00 this time. Every thing is very high, that is such as soldiers 
want, a fine good pair of shoes sells for $20.00, boots $35.00, hats from $8.00 
to $20.00, and everything else in proportion. Col. Holteclaw has promised me 
that I should have the first furlough of any officer in our Company, so I expect 

to get off home as soon as we are paid off which (here the whole top of this 

page is torn off) 

The officers who I work with in the Brizzard Commissary are gone 33 I 
did not get but 5.75 of that pay. I shall incur no more expenses, only for 
my provisions. We left Gen. Price at Saltillo, who I think will stir up the 
Feds at Corinth pretty soon, if I am not mistaken in the man. We apprehended 
no danger of an attack at this place, we are all anxious to hear from 
Chattanooga. 

If you have any good Black leather on hand, please have me a pair of fine 
good shoes made and send them to me by the first one passing. I want them with 
a single sole. Some of the shoes you had made for us at Auburn is now very good 
shoes and good many of the men are after me to send to have them some made. If 
you can furnish 15 or 20 pair, let me know and I will send you the money and 
numbers for them. Indeed I could sell 100 pair, but do not care to pester you 
for more than the Company would want. Write soon, address me as Lieut. W. H. Cox, 
Co. F 18 Regt, Ala Vols. Nothing more, but 

Your affectionate son, 
W. H. Cox

Lafayette, Geo. 
Sept. 10th, 1863 



Dear Father, 

You perceived by the above that we have been on the move. We marched 
9 days and got here two days ago. The dust was very disagreeable. I can 
give no idea of what will come next. I learn that a good many via Troups 
are here but do not know. This leaves me very well. 

I wish you to send me a goat or deer skin, if you have a large one, 
when you send me Daniel or two small ones to make me a haversack, as cloth 
ones grease my clothes so badly. 

We have no mail communications here now nor do not know when I will 
get this off, but suppose by some waggoner. 

I will try to write more fully when we get settled. 

My love to all, I am as ever, 

Yours affectionately, 
W. H. Cox

In Che woods in the Rear of 
Che Line of Battle, Paulding 
Co., Georgiu 
June 2, 1864 



Dear Father and All, 

I write again to inform you that I am still well and unhurt. I do not 
now recollect when I wrote you last, but I have been in all the fights from 
the beginning to the present time. Our Co. was in quite a severe skirmish the 
day before yesterday and night before last we had one more killed and 8 wounded 
in all since we left Dallas. Our right line suffered severly. One officer, 
Lt. Cohill killed, Capt. Darby and Lts Walker, Linn, Jones and Stephens wounded. 
Sixteen men killed, 80 wounded and about 80 captured. Yet our men are cheerful 
and sanguine of success when the struggle comes and are anxious for the fray. 

Daniel has turned up at last all safe and sound. Has been faring well. 
My clothing is dirty and I want them washed and shall employ him for a day 
or two and then perhaps send him to the rear again. I saw young Mr. Carlisle 
the other day, two of his brothers has been wounded in these fights, both slight, 
I suppose our men are skirmishing in front now but little doing. We have some 
artilery fighting of an evening but not much execution done. Our Gen. Officers 
seem to think that a general engagement will come off soon, but I think that the 
fight will consist in skirmishing and maneuvering. But Johnston seems to have 
headed the yanks here as we occupy the same ground we did a week ago. My paper 
is out so I must close. Write soon. Direct to Lt. W. H. Cox, 18 Ala. Regt. 
Clayton's Brigade, Stewart's Division. A. T. Yams (?) 

From, 

W. H. Cox

Dear Father, 

You perceive that I am a prisoner of war, was captured near Atlanta, Ga. 
on the 4th and reached here on the 16th. I find some friends here in like 
condition with myself. I am scarce of clothing and without money. 

If we have any relatives or friends that you know, please let me know 
them and their addresses. I am well except a cold which I took on my trip 
to this place. I wish you to either write or send this to my family. You can 
write anything relative to family or domestic affair.,, but nothing relative 
to the war or contraband as our letters are inspected. 

Write soon & instruct my wife how to write. Address me Block 5, 
Mess 3, Johnson's Island, Ohio. 



I am as ever,

My dear Father, 

I write again though I have not heard from you. I am in better health than 
I have been. If you have not already done so, please ship me by express, 100 lbs 
of flour, 50 lbs bacon, 20 lbs chewing tobacco, and 10 lbs smoking tobacco, 
also sugar, coffee, honey or anything of the kind. Box it up and band it with 
hoops or secure it. Mark it to Lt. W. H. Cox, Prisoner of War, Johnson's Island, 
Ohio care of Express, Richmonds Via Flag of Truce Boat. Please send it right 
away if you have any chance, procure me some money, Green Backs or gold or 
silver and express to me to buy paper and stamps as this is the last I have. 
I need the above articles very much tho we can live on the rations we draw, 
but they are short enough. Our quarters are comfortable enough for the time 
being. Let Lizzie hear from me every time you get a letter. We are allowed 
to write two letters a week. Perhaps brother Walter can help to forward me 
a box. If I have a chance I will send to Richmond by exchange prisoners and 
give them an order on you or any one of our relatives as I am as much in need 
now as I ever will be. 

Write soon. I am as ever,

case was shipped, but it never got to his son.

Johnson's Island, Ohio 
Oct. 16, 1864 



Dear Father, 

I have been looking several days for a letter from you, but as yet have 
received none. My health is on the decline, yet I trust that I may improve when 
I receive a box from you which I am anxiously looking for. My diet does not 
agree with me. We have light flour bread, salt pork, beef and fish and fresh 
beef three days in the week. We draw hominy or rice or beans, vinegar and salt 
in abundance. We are allowed to buy from the Sutler a few articles such as 
brushes, combs, soap and stationary but nothing to eat, but as I have no money 
I am easy for I could not buy if they sold anything that we might fancy. In 
writing or sending anything to me, be sure to mark it by. flag of truce or via 
Fortres s Monroe. I have written to several but have not yet received a response 
to any of my letters. I shall address all my letters to you and wish you to 
write or get one of the girls to write to Lizzie immediately so that she may 
hear from me through you. We are allowed to write twice a week. I will write 
you at least twice per month when I get paper. Do not write more than one page 
at the time for more is considered contraband. I shall keep on foot. I am as 
ever, 



Yours,

THE ROUNTREE FAMILY 

The Rountree name is found spelled many ways in the old records, 
generally evolving from Rowantree - Rowntree - Roundtree and Rountree. 

There are several origins given for the Rountree name, the following 
are from the "Rowntree, and Rountree Family History, 1521-1953" by 
Joseph Gus Rountree, Jr., of Beeville, Texas. 

"The Rowan Tree was held sacred by Norsemen or Vikings from 
Scandinavia, their conception of the world '"^ing a huge Rowan Tree, 
within whose embrace lay all living things, people and animals. Possibly 
this boy, found under such a tree, came from Norway or Denmark, as the 
Vikings settled and colonized Yorkshire, England, in the fifteenth or 
early sixteenth century. Many of the towns are called by Scandinavian 
names, such as Whitby, Easby, Newby, Rudby, Kirby and Ingleby." 

"Another tradition also handed down among the Rowntrees and 
Rountrees is that when the Norsemen Warriors took over England, one 
of the valiant warriors was rewarded by being given a large estate, and 
on this estate there grew a large number of Rowan Trees, so he took the 
name of Rowantree from them." 

And yet another tradition found among the old records of my Rountree 
branch is that: 

The name had its origin in about 1550 A. D. when a male child was 



292 



found abandoned on an estate under a "Rowan Tree" in or near Yorkshire, 
England. The wealthy man who found him, carried the babe dressed in 
fine clothes, into his house and reared him as his own. He named him 
"Rowantree," after the tree where he was found, and for his first name 
he was called "Moses" after the "Moses that is found in the Bible." 

The Rountree Coat of Arms is mentioned in the Burke Encyclopedia 
of Heraldry, 1844, as follows: 

"The Goat of Arms of the English family of Rowantree, to which 
all of the Rountrees, Roundtrees, etc., of America are believed to be 
related, is described in heraldic terms as follows: 

Arms "Argent, on a chevron asure between three branches 

of mountain ash vert, as many crescents of the field." 
Crest .. .."A tree proper." 

I have been unable to establish a connection between my Rountree 
Family and that of Joseph G. Rountree 's, or any of the Rountree family 
that has been previously written up. Although my earliest proven 
ancester is William Rountree b. ca. 1700 in England, it is highly 
probable that they are directly related.

Since his wife was not mentioned in his will dated Oct. 1, 1765,

RICHARDSON ROUNTREE 4&-12 or 20 b. ca. 1751 Goochland Co., Va. 

d. 4-20-1819 Edgefield Co., S. C. m. 1775 at Salsbury, Rowan 

Co., N. C. to MILDRED HART 22 b. ca. 1752 d. Prior to 1819 in 

Edgefield Co., S. C. 

RICHARDSON moved from Virginia to the Union District of S. C. 

by 1774, and then in 1794 to the Edgefield District of S. C. 

He served in the Revolutionary War in the S. C. Militia, as a 

Captain of Commissaries in Col. Brandon's Regiment. There is a 

story that "Richardson Rountree was captured by some Tories who 

tried to make him divulge the hiding place of certain supplies. 

He refused and they left him tied u^ in a swamp, when an old 

servant searched, found and untied him." He was a farmer and 

merchant and apparantly a successful' one as he left personal 

property that sold for around $10,000, plus his land holdings. 

It has erroneously been stated that his wife MILDRED HART was 

a daughter of John Hart, a signer of the Declaration of Independence 

It is said that he had eighteen children, although the writer 

only found twelve and some of those may be incorrect.
