In item 8; Starling had another son named W? Simpson Pitts; he was wounded in the Civil War I believe in 1862 He is buried in Friendship Presbertian Church in Hickory Tavern SC, Laurens Count. It is hard to go back from Henry; because there were two Henry's who moved to SC almost the same time; and was supposed to be cousions. Each had large families; some married ito each families. I dont have any records with me at this time. But thought this might enlighten you on the Pitts left here. Richard Pitts

Notes for PRESTON NORRED:

Posted by: Patsy Elaine Morin; Date: March 30, 1999 at 22:17:24
I am putting the following information on the internet to eliminate some confusion on this Norred Family. If anyone has anything to add to this family I would greatly appreciate it. I descend from Samuel Palmer Norred and Georgia Lester.
Descendants of Preston Norred

1. PRESTON NORRED was born Abt. 1790 in South Carolina, and died Abt. 1837 in Hall County, Georgia. He married NANCY TEAGUE in Abbeyville, South Carolina, daughter of ELIJAH TEAGUE and SARAH MORGAN. Nancy was born April 14, 1793 in Abbeyville South Carolina.
July 30, 1850 Court Records of (Benton) Calhoun County, Alabama (Examined and ordered to be filed and recorded.) Petition of Joshua Teague for Letters of Administration on the estate of Elijah Teague (Senior). Elijah Teague (Senior) died intestate in 1843, then a citizen of Benton County, Alabama, leaving a widow, Sarah (Morgan) Teague, and eleven children, to wit:

Sometime in the year 1848 and since said division Sarah (Teague) Smith, wife of John Smith, died. Sarah (Morgan) Teague, widow of Elijah Teague, (Sr.), died in March of 1850. Elijah left some 620 acres and buildings. Division can only be made lawfully by the appointment of a legal Administrator. Joshua Teague is the oldest of the heirs except two: Samuel and Elias.
Joshua Teague is the Administrator of Elijah Teague, even though that it states that Samuel and Elias are older. Each child received $371.47. Elijah and Sarah are buried in Davistown Cemetery, Davistown, Calhoun County, Alabama.

I was wondering if I could get any additional information on Isabella Norred who married R. Julius O'harrow. I am doing research on the Oharrow line and I have a Robert Julius Oharrow who married a Isabella Pierce (Pearce). It was around the same year.
Thanks for your help.

Children of JOHN LEAVELL and ELIZA SLAY are:
.....i.....LARLA LEAVELL.
.....ii.....SARAH JANE LEAVELL, b. 13 August 1854, Mississippi, USA; d. New Orleans, Louisiana, USA; m. WILLIIAM AUGUSTUS SIMONS 08 May 1876 in Raymond, Hinds, Mississippi. He was b. May 1855, Mississippi, and d. 02 Jul 1902 Hinds County, Mississippi, USA. I know of 11 children. Many trees list her as "Sarah Josephine Leavell." The Thomas Family Tree at http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/16017655/person/18025840238 says he married a Sarah Josephine Simmons, not a Leavell at all. The death date in LA is dubious--why would she be going by her maiden name? This whole line needs more work.

284. WILLIAM WASHINGTON WALLACE (RHODA ANN LEAVELL, EDWARD FRANKLIN, ROBERT, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born November 02, 1837, and died December 01, 1911 in New Site, Tallapoosa, Alabama, USA. He married MILDRED ARMINDA JONES August 27, 1865 in Bluff Springs, Tallapoosa, Alabama, USA, daughter of IRVIN JONES and HARRIET MESSICK. She was born October 29, 1842 in New Site, Tallapoosa, Alabama, USA, and died August 28, 1918 in New Site, Tallapoosa, Alabama, USA.

Notes for WILLIAM WASHINGTON WALLACE:
In a letter from A. Y. Satterfield to Rev. W. V. Wallace on December 3, 1952, the following story was related:
"William M. Blankenship (husband of Lucinda Francis Wallace) and great uncle William Washington (Buck) Wallace came home together after the surrender of the Civil War, and they were very thin and light in weight. Having served nearly all winter of 1864-65 in and around Richmond, Virginia and lived on what they could find in slop or swill barrels and green root and green limbs of trees. Uncle Buck told his wife he was going to get rich for he had learned to live on what they had heretofore thrown away. She said but after a few weeks he ad to have hot bisquits, three times a day, and all the other good food they could rake and scrape together."

Benjamin Franklin Jarvis owned a mill that served the community believed to be near New Site, Cow Pens, and Goldville, Alabama in Tallapoosa County. William Washington Wallace reported that he broke his arm while hitching up a team of mules at the mill. His arm was untreated and it withered creating a severe handicap for him. This injury was reported in Wallace's claim for pension as a Confederate War Veteran. The interesting fact about this incident was that many years later, the grandchildren of B. F. Jarvis and William W. Wallace who were Cassie Moody and Wilburn V. Wallace were married on December 10, 1914 uniting these two families.

Rev. R. W. Inzer
.....Our beloved pastor departed this life on the 2nd of September, A. D. 1895, after an illiness of three days with congestion of the stomach. Brother Inzer was born in Georgia April 27, 1828. Professed religion when a young man and joined the Baptist church. Was ordained to preach the gospel at Sardis Church, Cobb Co. Georgia, 1860. He moved to Alabama in 1860 where he remained preaching until December 1894. When he came to Bradly Co. Arkansas where he was called to four churches.
.....He leaves a third wife and 14 living children, 57 grandchildren, 7 great grand-children. The majority of whom are members of the church. Brother Inzer was a pastor in the full sense of the word, was an earnest and true christian, and able minister, and much beloved by all his churches who sadly miss his monthly service, but we feel our lose is his gain.

SURVEY OF REHOBOTH CEMETERY
LAWRENCEVILLE HIGHWAY
TUCKER, DEKALB COUNTY, GEORGIA
NOVEMBER 1988
Theresa M. Hall
NOTES
.....Many of the first settlers of Browning’s District, DeKalb County, Georgia, were laid to rest at Rehoboth Cemetery in the area once known as Pea Ridge. The land was owned by the Johns family. As I have researched the Payton and Talton, families, I have found many connections with most of the original settlers: Cash, Johns, Chewning, Goza, Knight, Wilson, etc. William Talton is first found in Tucker in 1827.
.....In this survey, all inscriptions are noted as well as relationships and maiden names obtained through other sources. My thanks and appreciation are extended to: Mr. Alton Chewning for the Chewning family history; Mrs. Betty Jean Foster for information on the Knight family; Mrs. Avis Talton Robertson for help with the Talton family; and all of the descendants of the Payton family, especially to Mrs. Lorene D. Allen and my great Aunt Maybelle Scoggins Payton.
.....As with most old cemeteries, Rehoboth Cemetery has numerous graves with only stones as markers, no names or dates inscribed. So this listing is only of the inscribed markers.

Francis Marion and his oldest brother John Calvin Leavell and their families along with their sister Rachel and her husband migrated to the Martin TWP. Pope County-Hickey TWP.Johnson County, area in about 1877. Margaret Joanna Leavell Wilson said she was 12 years old when they went to Arkansas and she was born in 1865. Francis Marion, his wife Mary Howard Gresham, their daughter Hettie M.R. , Margaret Joanna Leavell and Ervin Thomas Wilson and several of their children, along with John Calvin and Rachel and John Harris are buried in Adams Cemetery, a country cemetery, in Johnson County, Arkansas. Nadine Wilson says, "The story my grandmother told about when they went to Arkansas really stuck in my mind. She said they went by train and had their belongings in baskets and trunks and someone had to stay with them all the time to keep the Carpetbaggers from stealing them. I had never heard of Carpetbaggers and had no idea what they were so I never forgot it. A cousin disagreed when I told him the story and said " no, they came in covered wagons". It seems every family has to have a covered wagon story but I have decided that the men came by wagons and brought their farm implements and livestock and the women and children came by train."

There was no one by the name of Leavel in Pope Co. There was just this one family in Johnson Co Ark. Looks as if there were married in the county where she lived and then moved to Pope Co. This is probably her parents with her being the oldest child.

Some trees give William a death date of 26 Nov 1855, but that can't be true if that's him with Peggy in the 1860 census! JENNIFER HOOD'S FAMILY TREE at http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/20735194/person/1371171486?ssrc= says he died 30 October 1864, but gives no citation. Without a tombstone or death certificate or family Bible entry, I'm hesitant to believe either date.

Some trees claim after his death she married EDWARD FRANKLIN LEAVELL (1812-1864), Notes for MARGARET KATE RILEY GRESHAM:

John C. Mohon died of Interstitial Nephritis and Endocarditis. The SAM REED FAMILY TREE at http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/17682293/person/542578346 says Margaret died 19 NOV 1922 in Midway Presbyterian Chr., Cobb County, GA, but it also mistakenly assigns to her his children born in the 1850's, while listing their marriage in 1870.

More About MARGARET KATE RILEY GRESHAM: Burial: Midway Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Cobb County, GA. But the birthdate doesn't match the one we've given her, and his first wife was named Margaret, too. More research is needed.

The Arkansas Confederate Home was established in 1890 the Ex-Confederate Association of Arkansas to care for the needs of indigent Confederate soldiers and their widows. On December 1, 1890 they opened a nursing home in a remodeled residence near Sweet Home, south of Little Rock, on 60 acres of land purchased by the association. When the Arkansas Legislature established a $10,000 annual appropriation for the upkeep of the home in 1891, the Association deeded the property to the State. A new building was constructed in 1892 and by 1915 the institution housed 130 inmates. But in the following years the occupancy declined. In 1955 a new smaller Confederate Home was built on the grounds of the Schools for the Deaf and Blind in Little Rock. In 1961 with only eight residents remaining, the Legislature voted to close the Home and transfer the remaining patients to nursing homes. The Home was finally closed in 1963 and the building use transferred to the Blind and Deaf School. Copies of these records may be obtained from the Arkansas History Commission. Please write for a quote, as some of the files are quite lengthy.

Hi, I think I may have written you before, I would like any information you can share on this family. My father, Arvelle Benson Leavell, was born in Perry County, Arkansas, in 1925, son of Clayton William Leavell and Ruby Norman, who I don't think was married but she always claimed she was. I have other relatives there, including Aubrey Ballew who I visited recently, my dad's cousin. My dad and grandma moved to southern Missouri when dad was 10. I have a picture of Clayton William Leavell, with a nice new bicycle, which was probably pretty rare at the time. I have a sister, Leslie Leavell. My address is 609 Conrad, Jefferson City, MO 65109 and would love to correspond with anyone interested in anything on this line. Thanks!

Notes for MANSEL TIDWELL:
Re: Native American Tidwells
Posted by: Phil Tidwell Date: May 02, 1999 at 09:42:12
In Reply to: Native American Tidwells by William Tidwell of 979
Find the book "Whites Among the Cherokees". It is a collection of original source materials about Georgia and the Indians. The book covers the years 1828 to 1838 and includes primary data from Federal, State, and individual sources. The material in the book was collected and edited by Mary B. Warren and Eve B. Weeks. Copyright is 1987 and publisher is Heritage Papers, Danielsville, Georgia 30633.
Several TIDWELL's are mentioned in this book.
John TIDWELL born before 1790 and his wife Celia legally resided on Indian land in north Georgia. John TIDWELL worked in the Cherokee Nation as a millwright. He had five daughters and several marrieed mixed and full-blooded Cherokee men.

Daughters and husbands follow:
(1) Sarah married John SANDERS, Jr.
(2) Winnie married YOUNG DEER (full blood)
(3) Celia married Aaron PARRIS (mixed blood)
(4) Patsy married Dick EISKY
(5) Unknown daughter married Henry SMITH

Notes:
After murder of YOUNG DEER, Winnie TIDWELL married John GODDARD. Celia TIDWELL's first husband, Aaron PARRIS emigrated to the Indian Territory, Oklahoma in 1832. Celia remarried to Luke GRAVITT (white).

From Cherokee County history and Paulding County Georgia census records:

Winnaford TIDWELL and YOUNG DEER had one son named John TIDWELL, often referred to as "Indian" John TIDWELL. He was born in the Cherokee Nation in 1815. YOUNG DEER's son became a blacksmith and lived in Paulding County.

In 1831 he married first, Elizabeth Betsy GRAVITT in Hall County Georgia. They had three children:

(1) Calite Winnie TIDWELL - FEMALE - 1832
(2) Mansel TIDWELL - MALE - 1836 (3) Genetta TIDWELL - FEMALE - 1838

First wife died in 1838. "Indian" John married second wife, Lucretia THOMPSON in 1842. Their children were:

(1) Pleasant TIDWELL born 1843 - MALE
(2) Loduskey Ann TIDWELL born 1845 - FEMALE
(3) Mary TIDWELL born 1847 - FEMALE
(4) Grace Aminda TIDWELL born 1849 - FEMALE
(5) Versonoy TIDWELL born 1850 - ?
(6) John Granville TIDWELL born 1852 - MALE
(7) Marny Clemintine TIDWELL born 1854 - FEMALE
(8) Safony Caroline TIDWELL born 1856 - FEMALE
(9) William TIDWELL born 1858 - MALE
(10) Washington Pennington TIDWELL born 1861 - MALE
(11) Martha TIDWELL born 1863 - FEMALE
(12) Minor TIDWELL born 1865 - MALE
(13) Leroy TIDWELL born 1868 - MALE
(14) Ada TIDWELL born 1872 - FEMALE

"Indian" John TIDWELL and many of his family emigrated to Oklahoma and are listed in the Dawes Rolls for Cherokee Allotment of land in 1889, 1894, and 1896. He was known in Stillwell, Oklahoma in the Indian "dialect" as, "Indian John with all them kids".

"Indian" John TIDWELL returned to Georgia from the Indian Territory and settled for a few years in Cobb County Georgia. Then moved to Paulding County Georgia. From there he returned to the Indian Territory in the 1880's. "Indian" John TIDWELL died in 1903 before he fully documented his Cherokee heritage and before he got a Cherokee land allotment.

I hope this helps some TIDWELL's seeking a Cherokee connection. In my TIDWELL line I have found no native American link. Would be proud to discover one.

Jane,
...I'm not a descendant of "Indian" John and have no primary or direct knowledge about him and his son Mansel. All the information I posted came from the book mentioned in the message. The sources on the "Internet" that I have seen say it's the same Mansel Tidwell. I suggest you contact the following three people who might have the information that you seek.
...William Tidwell has done a great deal of research about Tidwells with American Indian "blood". He has used many primary sources in his research. He sometimes posts on the GenForum and his messages are clear and informative. His e-mail address is (wtid592356 at ol.com).
...Nancy Brown in Texas is also researching "Indian" John Tidwell. She seems to put a lot of energy and excitment into her search and her joy of discovery is revealed in the messages she posts. She has a homepage at FTM, but has not placed her material on site yet. Her e-mail is (NANCEE2000@AOL.COM).
...Randolph Julian Marchmont has compiled a great deal of information from various sources and maintains a website with the descendants of John Tidwell (this line includes "Indian" John and Mansel Tidwell. This interesting website, which says Mansel married Rachel Mahalia Levell is found at the following location (http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/m/a/r/Randolph-J-Marchmont/index.html).
...If for some reason the above link is not correct, go to the Genealogy.com homepage and click "Site Finder". Type Indian John Tidwell into the search feature and ENJOY!
...Take care and good luck in your research.

Surname: WORTHINGTON, LEAVELL, CALDWELL, BRITTAIN, DAVIS, TATE
Seeking info. about James Leavell who married Emily Worthington in 1838 and moved from SC to Pontotoc Co. MS. Emily had a sister Margaret who was the second wife of John Joseph Caldwell who died in Pontotoc Co. MS. John and Margaret had a son John Jones Caldwell who married Mariah Brittain. Who were the parents of John Joseph Caldwell and where was he from? The Worthington sisters were daughters of Elijah Worthington and Emily Davis of Edgefield Co. SC and Newberry Co. SC. Elijah was the son of Samuel and Margaret Worthington. Emily was the daughter of Chesley Davis and Mary Tate. I descend from Chesley and Mary through their daughter Rhoda Davis who married John Abernathy in 1775 in Newberry Co. SC. I am trying to make a BOYD connection with the CALDWELLs.

OneWorldTree at ancestry.com has a Robert A. McWhorter, born 9 Apr 1854 in Pontotoc County, Mississippi to Mary Louisa Gould and Benjamin F. McWhorter, who married Emma Elizabeth Strain in Union Co. MS. She was born 24 Jul 1859 and died in Union Co. MS 1 Jun 1886. They had a child, Claude, born 19 Aug 1884 . Now I'm totally confused.

311. ELIZABETH LEAVELL (JAMES TEAGUE, JOHN, ROBERT, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born September 06, 1806 in Newberry County, South Carolina, USA, and died August 02, 1846. She married GABRIEL COLE August 13, 1820 in Newberry, South Carolina, USA, son of JAMES COLE and JINOR ?. He was born March 06, 1795 in Newberry County, South Carolina, USA, and died February 25, 1839 in Fort Bend County, Texas, USA.

Notes for GABRIEL COLE:
Received Don. Cert. 92 on 8 Oct. 1847 from AG for being in the Siege of Bexar. 320 acres in Smith County were ptd. to him on 17 Aug 1850. Pat.250 Vol. 1 Abst. 271 and 320 acres in Smith County were ptd. to him on 2 April 1855. Pat. 394 Vol. 2 Abst 274 GLO File Nac. Don. 253. From "Bounty and Donation of Land Grants 1835-1888"

....Gabriel Cole filed receipts to recover supplies he took by wagon to for use in the "Battle of Bexar".
....The Division reached G. Cole's place on the Sam Bernard at mid-day and Santa Anna called a halt.
....March resumed 4 p.m., April 10 after confiscating 20 barrels of sugar and 12 hundred twenty five bushels of corn.
History of Texas By J. H. Brown at Fort Bend County Library. Except from Almonte's diary, "
Satudrday, Arpil 9 (1836)at 5 a.m. we left San Felipe with the choice companies of Guerro, Matamoros, Mexico and Toluca with fifty cavalry of the Tampico regiment. At half past 12 we arrived at Coll's (Cole's ) farm six and one-half leagues (from San Felipe). Three Americans were seen who took the road to Marion (Columbia) or Orizimbo (Old Fort) and leading to Thompson's Ferry. We found at the farm a family from Lavaca who came by way of the Brazos. Various articles were also found. The husband of the woman was a mulatto, the womand was white. We sent Wilson, the husband, to reconnoiter at Marion, that is the ferry. He did not return. It rained at night and the wind blew from the north...

History of Fort Bend County, Texas: Clarence Wharton 1939 Texas State Archives 979.4135W555w...
In those days the road from Columbia to San Felipe did not follow the meanders of the Brazos but passed Damons Mound and Mrs. Powell place on Turkey Creek about a mile from the Bernard, thence up by Gabriel Cole's across the prairie and on to San Felipe. Page 72

Chapter VI Settlements on the Bernard pg. 64
...Only two permanent locations were made by the Three Hundred on the Bernard in Fort Bend County -James Beard, the saddle maker, cook on the schoooner "Lively" and James Scott. The other Bernard locations from Gabriel Cole down to James where the south line of the County leaves the Bernard for the Brazos came later. At the time of the Revolution there was a solid tier of Mexican grants on both sides of the Bernard. Gabriel Cole whose survey lies in the Big Bend of the Bernard at the most north and westerly corner of the county, came from Maine (this is an error, should be South Carolina) in 1832 and got his grant that year. In 1835 he joined the patriot army at Gonzales and was at the "Seige of Bexar" in December. In the following March when Santa Anna's Army was on its way to the Brazos, Gabriel took his family and fled with the runaways. Later we shall see that his humble homestead on the Bernard was the camp site for the Mexican Army on its way to the Jesse Thompson Ferry on the Brazos in April. After the Revolution he continued to live on his land until his death in 1846. (Cole probably lived on the Charles Baird Survey at this time..See Act of Congress. 1839, Vol.3 pg. 40 ) Below Gabe Cole's, Andrew Northington from Kentucky came with his family.

Notes for MARY ANN E. LEAVELL:
Transcribed from a newspaper clipping in my possession on 3/24/01 by Linda Blum-Barton
THE NEWNAN HERALD
NEWNAN, GA. FRIDAY, APRIL 5.
TURIN
It becomes our painful duty this week to chronicle the death of Mrs. Mary E. Moses, which occurred on Friday morning last, following a long illness. She was the widow of Hon. Ansley Moses, who died many years ago, and had passed her eightieth year. She had been a patient sufferer, and when the final hour came she was resigned, her heart overflowing with the joy anticipated in being re-united with loved ones who had preceeded her to the better land. She was a daughter of the late Chas. Leavell, one of Coweta's early residents. In her young days she united with Ebenezer Baptist church, and was ever a zealous worker in the Master's cause. When Turin Baptist Church was constituted she enrolled as a charter member, and continued this relationship until her death. She was the honored mother of five children - L. T. Moses, C. L. Moses, R. N. Moses, Mrs. V. A. Ham and Mrs. A. S. Jones - only two of whom survive. They are Judge l. T. Moses and Mrs. A. S. Jones. She was a sister of Mrs. H. S. Rees. Funeral services were held at Turin Baptist Church Saturday morning. Dr. S. b. Cousins officiated, who was assisted by Rev. J. F. Eden of Senoia, Rev. R. M. Stevens of Sharpsburg and Rev. H. S. Rees of Turin. Her remains were carried to Newnan, and after a brief burial service by Dr. J. S. Hardaway they were laid to rest in the family lot. A large concourse attended the funeral, and the floral offerings were profuse and beautiful. As she clasped the writer's hand for the last time she said, "We will meet over yonder on the heavenly shore."

Dr. Camp and Mr. T. W. Methvin, of Senoia, and Judge P. M. Waltom, of Raymond, visited the writer's family the first of the week.

Nice showers the past few days have caused vegetation to put forth rapidly. Some of our farmers are planning cotton. Good stands of corn everywhere, and it is looking well.
April 3d
(This clipping did not have a year on it but Mrs. Mary E. Moses died in 1918.)

Notes for CAPT. ANSLEY MOSES:
The following letter has been passed down through my family. It was sent to my 4-great grandfather by his son's Commander, Ansley Moses. I only have a copy of this letter.

John died last of July, here is a letter from a lady. I would write you but I have no stamps. J. C. Latta is in Co. (A) 53rd Ga.
My health, good.
A. Moses
Williamsport June 19th 1864
Captain Moses,
I have past been the recipient of your letter to which I hasten to reply, being most happy to give you the information I posses in reference to the person of whom you inquire. I was not so aquatinted with Lt. Leslie myself, my attention was given to another hospital, but a particular lady friend of mine saw him every day did all she could for him. I have ascertained from her the following, was brought to the . . . fellows hall with a fractured limb was doing very well until moved on the lower floor of the building. The exertion which was too great for his weakened state caused secondary hemorrhage, consequently he died a short time after the change had been made, his remains were indentured in the hospital grave yard. . . . Since Capt. Johns wrote us on the subject--to whom I gave the same account as the one here in sentenced, I have . . . the entire graveyard with the hope of finding his grave but sorry am I to say all my efforts were in vain. The nurses alone are blamable for the . . . neglect of not making the graves of many poor fellows who have died far away from their homes and their loved one there of. The omission of this important duty . . . it impossible for us to identify the graves when written to by the friends of the departed, which is a source of sincere regret, nothing would give me more pleasure than to be able to tell you the plot Lt. Leslie is buried so that his afflicted wife might be able to get his remains. Lathem was in the same hospital with J. L. Latta has sense been exchanged from Point Look Out, if it were possible for the friends of Lt. Leslie to see Lathem he might be able to tell them much about him.
Hoping this may reach you safely,
will find you alive.

.....HON. CHARLES L. MOSES, congressman from the fourth district of Georgia, is of noble ancestry, for his great-grandsires on both sides took part in the revolutionary conflict. His grandfather, Neal Moses, the son of John Moses, the revolutionary hero, was born in North Carolina, took part in the war of 1812, and in 1820 moved to Fayette county, Ga. His wife was Nancy Manning, and in 1829 his son Ansley was born. The latter was reared on the farm in Fayette county and married Miss Mary Leavell, whose parents Charles and Elizabeth (Hunter) Leavell, were natives of South Carolina, and were married in Newberry district in 1831, removing to Georgia in 1833. Charles Leavell was born in 1802, his father being John Leavell, a Virginian, whose father, also John Leavell by name, emigrated from England before the revolution, and was with Francis Marion through all that struggle. Charles L. Moses was born in 1856 and reared on the old farm in Coweta county, Ga., and received a good common school education. In 1873 he entered Mercer university and graduated in 1876. He began teaching in Newnan, having charge, for seven years, of the boy's department; the last year in this department there were 150 boys. Among Mr. Moses' college classmates were Thomas Watson, John Boifeuillet, Seaborn Wright of Rome, W. D. Jelks, and T. E. Murphy, who took first honors.
.....Mr. Moses himself carried off the second honors. He is a young man of great promise and recognized ability, his election to congress in 1890 from the fourth district being in evidence of this. Throughout his district he is held in high esteem, and justly regarded as a most worthy citizen. His wife, to whom he was married in 1881, was Miss Blanche Hall, daughter of Rev. J. H. Hall of Newnan. They have seven children living: Coral, James H., Charles L., Jr., Ansley, Hugh A. Blanche, Amaziah. Mr. and Mrs. Moses are honored members of the Baptist church. Mr. Moses is a member of the I. O. O. F.

Transcribed from MEMOIRS OF GEORGIA published by the Southern Historical Association, 1895.
.....LUTHER T. MOSES is one of the best known men of this section of the state, being chief deputy of internal revenue of Georgia. He is a grandson of a soldier of the war of 1812, Neal Moses, who with his wife, Nancy (Manning) Moses, came from their native state, North Carolina, to Georgia in 1812, and after a short residence here went to Alabama, where Mr. Moses died. Their son, Ansley Moses, was born in Fayette county, Ga., in 1829. He was a man of great ability and very useful to his state. In 1860 he helped organize Company D, Fifty-third Georgia regiment, Longstreet's corps. With this he went out as captain, being sent on an expedition to the coast. The next year he went out as first lieutenant but after a few months was made captain of Company D, which rank he held until 1863. Longstreet was then transferred to the western army, and in April Capt. Moses was taken prisoner at Knoxville, Tenn., and imprisoned for eight months at Camp Chase, Ohio; it was while here that he contracted the chronic lung disease which eventually caused his death; from Camp Chase he was transferred to Fort Delaware, where he remained until the close of the war. Mr. Moses represented his county in the legislature in 1873 and 1874. He was deacon in the Baptist church, in which he had been a conscientious member and earnest worker from the age of twenty-one. His death occurred in 1886, and was greatly deplored. The wife of Capt. Moses was Miss Mary E. Leavell, daughter of Charles and Elizabeth W. (Hunter) Leavell, both natives of Virginia, but who passed their youth in South Carolina, coming to Georgia about 1832 and making their home in Coweta county. It was in this county that Luther T. Moses was reared, having been born in 1853. He received a good common school education and devoted some ten years to teaching. His interest in schools has always been very deep, and he has manifested this interest constantly and by every possible means, doing everything in his power to advance the educational interests of his native county, often at considerable sacrifice to himself. He was a member of the school board from 1880 to 1887, and again from 1889 to 1893, each time resigning to take an important government position. This was the office of deputy internal revenue collector, to which he was appointed by President Cleveland in January, 1887, holding it until the inauguration of the new president, being appointed chief deputy in August, 1893, the position he still holds. Mr. Moses was married in 1884, his wife being Miss Etta North, born in 1860 and reared in Coweta county, the daughter of Thomas G. and Jane (Jones) North. They have four children: Tallmadge, Alice, L. T., and Mary.
.....Both Mr. and Mrs. Moses are steadfast members of the Baptist church, and everywhere beloved and respected. Mr. Moses is a man of wide and growing influence and is sure to make his mark in his country and age.

Notes for JOHN HENRY LEAVELL:
From : Carlton
Sent : Friday, October 6, 2006 1:55 PM
Thanks, for the assistance. Do you know when Lula moved to Texas and with whom? I found Henry and Nancy Holland in the 1850 Census for Choctaw but not in the 1860 Census . However, I think I found the four Holland children living with a Rachel Linson and her four children. The Holland children were listed as Lou female age 6 birthplace AL, J. H. male birthplace Al. A.H. age 10 birthplace AL and E. .E. age 12 birthplace AL. I feel almost positive these are the children of Henry and Nancy. This 1860 Census information was from the Internet and in alphabetical order and typed. I think the handwritten named census was a mistype or misread when transcribed. I think Lou is Lula Holland born Aug. 6,1854, J. H. is James Thomas Holland born Aug 15, 1854, A.H. is William Henry born 1850 and E.E. is my great grand mother, Emma Eugenia Holland born Dec. 5, 1847. This would suggest that Henry and Nancy are deceased. Do you have information that might explain this? I wonder if Lula and her siblings moved to Texas with the Horns. I found a Lula Holland living with a Horn couple (race white) in Leon Co. Texas in the 1870 Census. Lula is listed a 15 year old black female born in AL. Wonder if this is another transcribing error. Lula married John Leavell in Nov. 1870.
Your help is most appreciated. R. C. Dumas

John Henry was in Hood's Brigade in the Civil War. He was a merchant. Much information was from book WILLIAM HORN AND FAMILY, San Marcos, Texas, May 1904, pages 10-32, written by W. D. Horn, great-grandson of William Horn. (Unfortunately, the Horn papers were a notorious hoax--see elsewhere on this website.)

After their marriage, John and Lou moved from Centerville to Jewett, then to Georgetown, Wiliamson, Texas, USA.

Details of the funeral, The Observer, 9/17/1915, page 1 The herald and news., Friday, September 17, 1915, Page EIGHT
Death of Mrs. R. Y. Leavell
…..We are pained to chronicle the passing of Mrs. Robert Y. Leavell, which sad event occurred Monday at 11 p.m. Mrs. Leavell had not been in good health for some time past, and was under treatment by her physician, but the immediate cause of her death was a fall she sustained in her home last Saturday night, from which she did not rally, and her demise under such circumstances is peculiarly a source of great regret and sorrow in this community.
…..Mrs. Leavell was a woman of gentle, amiable as well as quiet temperament, and these womanly virtues attracted to her many who esteemed her in life and now mourn with the bereaved who follow after her.
…..Mrs. Leavell was born Miss Mary E. Evans, in 1850, in Cheraw, S. C. She was the daughter of Capt. And Mrs. Ann E. Evans, who were of the old Evans family of Cheraw mentioned by Bishop Gregg in his book, “History of the Old Cheraws,” among the pioneer families of that section.
…..She was happily married to Mr. R. Y. Leavell in October, 1870, having previously attended school here under the management of Rev. Mr. Zealy, who was a prominent educator of his time.
…..Mrs. Leavell is survived by her bereaved husband and two children, who are disconsolate in the circumstances, Mrs. Robert E. Leavell and Mrs. Hattie L. O’Donnell. There were two other children born to her, who died several years ago, Annie and Chalmers, daughter and son, in whom she was well pleased and whose beautiful lives added largely to her own joyous Christian life. She was a consistent member of the First Baptist church of Newberry, and for a while was the appreciated organist, Mrs. Leavell excelling in her finished musical touch.
…..Surviving her likewise are two brothers, Mr. A. L. Evans of Cheraw, S.C., and Mr. William R. Evans of Meridian, Mississippi. Also three sisters, Mrs. M. W. Duvall of Cheraw, S.C. , Mrs. John T. White of Norfolk, Va., and Mrs. C. L. Dowell of Ahoskle, N. C. Her remains were interred in Rosemount cemetery Wednesday afternoon, the officiating minister being the Rev. R. W. Lide of Darlington, S. C.

…..In 1856, I joined the Lodge of the Sons of Temperance in Newberry, at which meetings I had much pleasure. I remember a regular attendant, Mr. John R. Leavell, who had a handsome son named Robert. Robert was a handsome and lovable boy, and the most expert stone-cutter that I ever knew. Robert Leavell, I believe, still lives and is now a good citizen of Newberry.

Per http://www.whitakerfuneralhome.com/ :
....."Originally known as the John Rowland Leavell Funeral Home, our facilites were first located near the present-day Hampton Inn on Nance Street in Newberry, SC. This home was founded in 1847, and in 1865 Robert Young Leavell built the Nance Street facility.
.....After the death of R. Y. Leavell in 1935, James R. Leavell took over the helm, moving the Newberry Home to its present site (Calhoun St. & College St.) in the winter of 1937.
.....The College Street facility was built by Edward Sholtz around 1880 and sold to Dr. William E. Pelham in 1889. Upon his death in 1930 the home went into Dr. Pelham's estate. It was purchased 1936 by John Stockman, who in turn sold it to James R. Leavell.
.....In 1951 the home was sold to Roy Doggett Whitaker, Sr. acquiring its current name under which it was incorporated October of 1970. Not long thereafter (1972) a new brick garage was added."

Richard Chalmers Leavell
…..To say of any friend “He is dead” always brings sorrow to the hearts of our citizens, but when a strong, brave, young life like Richard Chalmers Leavell leaves this world and passes into the Great Beyond the community double mourns.
…..It was indeed a shock to the entire town yesterday to learn that Chalmers Leavell died at ten o’clock the night before, Sunday night, at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. Y. Leavell, in Boundary street, after an illness of one week of pneumonia.
…..Richard Chalmers Leavell was born on October 3rd, 1877, and had spent almost his entire life in Newberry. The funeral services will take place at Rosemont cemetery this afternoon , Tuesday, at 4:30 o’clock.
…..He was the second of the three living children of Mr. and Mrs. Leavell, and was a young man of fine character, high ideals, and noble purpose in life. Consistent in all his relations in life he was loved and honored by those who knew him best. The general consensus of opinion even by those who did not know him intimately is that he was a most worthy and excellent young man, and one that the community could least afford to lose, representing as he did in every phase of his young life the highest type of a Southern gentleman and an American citizen.
…..He will be missed on the streets, among his comrades, at his post of business, and in his church work especially will there be a great vacancy, but most of all in the charmed home circle where loving hearts held him as so very dear will he be missed. We extend to these sad hearts our deepest, and sincerest, sympathy.
…..Mr. Leavell was a consistent member of the Knights of Pythias, and the Red Men, and a devoted member of the Baptist church. He was a partner of the firm of R. Y. Leavell and Son.
…..(And on and on, quoting a James Whitcomb Riley poem.)

From THE HANDBOOK OF TEXAS ONLINE:
LEAVELL, WILLIAM HAYNE (1850-1930). William Hayne Leavell, clergyman and diplomat, son of John Rowland and Elizabeth Jane (Chalmers) Leavell, was born in Newberry District, South Carolina, on May 24, 1850. He was graduated from Newberry College in 1866 and from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1870. On December 1, 1874, he married Mary George, and they had four children. Austin College conferred an honorary doctorate on him in 1895, and the University of Mississippi gave him another in 1908. Leavell served as pastor in Jackson and Meridian, Mississippi, and in Manchester, New Hampshire. He was called to the First Presbyterian Church in Houston, Texas, in 1893 and served it until 1905. He moved to Carrollton, Mississippi, in 1911. He was envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to Guatemala from 1913 to 1919, when he returned to Houston. Leavell served on many synodical committees and was president of the board of directors of the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He was a trustee of the William M. Riceqv estate and of Austin College. He edited and published George's Political History of Slavery in the United States (1915). He was a progressive Democrat. Leavell died in Houston on August 1, 1930.

A TRUE FRIEND OF THE RACE.
.....And then the Rev. Dr. William Hayne Leavell, of Meridian, arose to deliver the annual address. What a contrast! Dr. Leavell is a South Carolinian by birth and a relative of the great Nullifier Hayne. He comes of one of the proud old Southern families and has the highest social connections. He stands six feet high, a magnificent specimen of physical manhood, and as chock full of moral courage as he is of blue blood. This man left his home, declined an invitation to participate in the Confederate corner-stone ceremonies, and devoted his birthday anniversary to Tougaloo. Dr. Leavell is a son-in-law of United States Senator George, of Mississippi. He is the man who delivered an address before the Mississippi Legislature last winter, and denounced as cowards, men who go about with pistols in their hip pockets. And when the blank looks of amazement went round he rubbed his sentiments in on the Mississippians and their folly, of making themselves walking shooting galleries. Coming before the students of Tougaloo yesterday, Dr. Leavell said:
....."My interest in you, in this whole work, grows out of a memory. Your fathers were the servants of my fathers. I remember that in 1861, when I was a very small boy, the sound of war went through this land. My father, kinsmen and friends went forth to battle to keep your fathers in servitude. I remember that not a few of your fathers knew what that war meant—that if my fathers succeeded, your fathers would be kept in servitude forever and my fathers would remain the master class. All the men that could protect the women and children were away. The fathers and brothers and friends were away fighting. We were in the power of your fathers and of some of you gray-headed people that I see. I remember that when they returned from that war your fathers gave back to mine the women and children without a hair of their heads having been harmed. I have remembered this with deep gratitude; and ever since that time I have felt a deep interest in you. It is therefore, that I have come in response to the call to be here to-day."
THE ONLY LOGICAL RESULT.
.....He proceeded at considerable length with such earnest advice as he might have given to the assembled students of a white university on commencement day. After a time he touched upon the special condition which his audience presented.
....."I know," said he, "of no people who have ever lived with a more difficult problem before them. You have before you the duty of saving yourselves. Mark what I tell you, no man of another race ever saved a people. Some man of you, or of your race, has got to go with the pillar of fire by night and the cloud by day, and, like Moses, lead you.
....."God knows many a man of my race has given his life and service for [pg 211] yours. And not only these men who fought at the end of a gun to make you free have given their lives for you, but some of us from the South, who stood with breasts bared to the bayonets of those who were marching forward to the support of a great principle. We are anxious now to do all we can for your advancement. But we of the white race may do our best. After all we have done for you, it is as when a man goes with a friend to the brink of the grave; he can go no further. There is a limit beyond which we cannot go for you, no matter how great our interest in you. Some man with a skin darker than mine must take up the work and carry it on."
.....He said not a word about politics, but later in the day the question was put to him privately:
....."Doctor, suppose these negroes to whom you talked awhile ago become what you urged them to be—useful, reliant, well-to-do citizens—what will be their status politically? Will the white people, with all this progress of the negro in education, in industry, in independence and in the acquisition of property, acknowledge his political rights?"
....."They'll have to, sir," was the prompt and emphatic reply. "This present condition of affairs can't go on. We know that. As the negro becomes qualified we've got to admit him to full citizenship."

Brantley’s father, in the book, is noted as being 'of Newberry, SC'
Brantley’s son, John Rowland Pelham died at a young age.
Notes Wardlaw makes on William Ellerbe Pelham are: 'Graduated at South Carolina College, 1871. Prominent and successful druggist at Newberry, South Carolina. Elder in Presbyterian church, active Mason and Knight of Pythias, President South Carolina Sunday School Association.'
Your guess sounds good to me, but all that I can tell you is what was in the book.
Hope this helped.
Kindly,
Nate Maas
San Luis Obispo, California

Developed that Mrs. Goodwin, Wife of the Slayer, was the only eye-witness
The State August 30, 1906 Coroner's inquest in Leavell Killing
.....Newberry, Aug. 29 - At the coroner's inquest held today inquiring into the killing of Eugene Leavell by B. W. Goodwin, it developed tht Mrs. Goodwin, wife of the slayer, was the only eye-witness to the tragedy. She testified she saw Leavell coming up the road in a buggy about 7 o'clock. She called to him to stop and went out where he was; asked him what he had said about her. Leavell said he thought it was a dirty trick for her to forge that petition. About that time Goodwin, who had been sitting on the porch, came out and said Leavell had no right to talke to his wife that way. Witness said that Leavell called him a damn scoundrel, saying he was the cause of the fuss at the same time striking him with the buggy whip, getting out of the buggy as he did so. Goodwin shot, the bullet going through Leavell's left side. Leavell then started to get back in the buggy and fell, his horse walking off. Witness said she and her husban then went back in the house, leaving the man dying there.
.....Further testimony of ohther witnesses says that Leavell had been at Mr. Morris' and Brooks' that evening, stopping out of the rai, and that he was on his way home when accosted by Mrs. Goodwin.
.....The affair grew out of a school matter in the election of a teacher. It is alleged tht Mrs. Goodwin had gotten up a petition, forging some names to induce a teacher elected not to accept the school. Leavell was in favor of the teacher, and prominent in getting her elected. This was not brought out in the testimony, however.
.....When Coroner Lindsley reached the scene this forenoon, about 11:30 the body was still lying in the road. Solicitor cooper was at the inquest. Mrs. Goodwin testified that her husband was not in the habit of carrying a pistol.

The Herald and News, June 12, 1908, Page EIGHT (Newberry County, SC)
IN THE HANDS OF JURY
The Goodwin Case Went to Jury Yesterday Afternoon at Four Ten
B.W. Goodwin was placed on trial on Tuesday morning, charged with murder and killing of Eugene L. Leavell, near Vaughnville, on the afternoon of the 18th of August, 1906. The case has excited unusual interest and the court house has been packed every minute since the case was called.
…..When the case was called on Tuesday morning there were several preliminary motions which were disposed of and the case ordered for trial, both sides announcing ready. There was little difficulty in securing a jury and taking the testimony began shortly after dinner on Tuesday.
…..It will be recalled that Leavell was shot in the road in front of Goodwin’s house. It seems that the trouble which resulted in the killing arose from a difficulty in regards to the school at Vaughnsville, of which Mr. Leavell was a trustee.
…..On the afternoon of the killing Mr. Leavell was driving by Mr. Goodwin’s house when he was stopped by Mrs. Goodwin, who had a conversation with him. Goodwin went out to the buggy where Leavell and Mrs. Goodwin were and the shooting followed. It had been raining before the killing and a mass of testimony was offered by the state as to tracks, the theory of the State being that Leavell was shot while in his buggy and was thrown out of the buggy when the horse jumped after the report of the pistol. Testimony of a number of witnesses was offered to prove that there were tracks of only one person in the road opposite where it appeared that the buggy had stopped and that Leavell’s body was thirty-one feet down the road from these tracks and that there were no tracks between the tracks where the buggy had stopped and Leavell’s body.
…..To go into this testimony is such detail was made necessary by the fact that Walter Brooks, the only eye witness except Goodwin and his wife, had gone to Atlanta, leaving his home on last Friday night. Young Brooks, however, was brought back to Newberry by his brother Clarence Brooks, on Wednesday afternoon and was placed on the stand and gave his account of the killing.
…..Walter Brooks said that on the afternoon of the killing he had gone to Mr. Goodwin’s house to get some bread that Mrs. Goodwin had cooked for his father’s family. He said that when he went in the house his aunt, Mrs. Goodwin, and B. W. Goodwin were sitting on the piazza steps, that he went through the house and went to the waterbucket to get a drink of water, and while he was at the water bucket he heard his aunt, Mrs. Goodwin telling someone “You are a liar.” He said that he then went on the front porch and saw his uncle, Eugene Leavell, sitting in his buggy and Mrs. Goodwin standing by the buggy on the side of the road. He said that Leavell answered, “I don’t tell lies but Janie Chalmers teaches this school.” His uncle, Whit Goodwin, he said, then went around in front of the horse and said, “Eugene Leavell, you dirty scoundrel, what you run around the country trying to get my children out of school for.” Leavell said, “I have not done no such,” and then Goodwin went around in front of the horse and shot him.
…..Young Brooks said that at the time Leavell was shot he was sitting in his buggy and had thrown his lap robe back and was somewhat leaning out of the buggy. At the coroner’s inquest young Brooks stated to several persons that he did not know anything about the killing. He told this on the stand Wednesday afternoon and explained it by saying that both men were his uncles and that he did not want to have anything to do with it.
…..Miss Pearl Goodwin, a daughter of the defendant, was sworn for the defense and testified that at the time of the killing she was sitting on the front piazza and that Brooks was not on the front piazza and that if he had been on the front piazza he could not have seen the killing because she said it occurred at a point in the road between which and Goodwin‘s house there was another little house.
…..Miss Etha Goodwin said that at the time the pistol fired she was in the back part of the house and that she saw young Brooks also in the back part of the house at the water bucket and that it was impossible for him to have seen the shooting.
…..Mrs. Goodwin testified that up to the time of the killing Leavell and her husband had been the best of friends. She said that on the afternoon of the killing she saw Leavell driving by her house and stopped him and went out and told him she had heard that he said she had forged a petition asking Miss Janie Chalmers not to teach the school to which she had been elected. She said that Leavell told her that whoever told her that had told her a lie, but that she had acted low and dirty about the thing and that she had lied to Janie Chalmers and that she had forged his, Leavell’s, name to the petition, that Mr. Goodwin then came out and said, “Eugene, you shall not talk to my wife in no such manner,” and Leavell said, “While you are the low down scoundrel you at the bottom of it, and I intend to fight you to the bitter end;.” that Mr. Goodwin went around the horse on the other side of the buggy and that Mr. Leavell struck him with the buggy whip and jumped out of the buggy and struck the second and third time, Goodwin telling him all the while that he must not strike him again and after the third lick they had got on the other side of the buggy and the pistol fired. She said that after Leavell was shot he walked back to his buggy and attempted to get in and put the whip in the socket and then weakened and fell in the road and that the horse moved off slowly.
…..R. W. Goodwin, the defendant, said that after his wife stopped Mr. Leavell in the road he heard the conversation getting sharp and that he went out to the buggy, that after Leavell told his wife she had acted low down and dirty he told Leavell that he could not talk to his wife that way and Leavell told him that he was a dirty, low down scoundrel at the bottom of every bit of it, that he told Leavell it was a lie and that Leavell then jumped out of the buggy and struck him with a whip and he told Leavell not to do that and Leavell advanced on him and struck him the second and third time and when Leavell struck him the third time he shot him, telling him he would kill any man who had talked to his wife in any such manner and then try to buggy whip him; that Leavell said, “Whit, you have already done it,” and stepped back to his buggy and put the whip in the socket and went to get in the buggy and weakened and fell to the ground and the horse walked off down the road. Goodwin said that he had been carrying the pistol which he had, constantly, since a threatened race riot near his home several years ago.
…..During the progress of the case considerable expert testimony was offered, the State contending the wound must have proven instantly fatal, and the defense contending that a man shot as Goodwin was shot could have taken a number of steps. The wound entered the left chest and ranged downward, backward and to the right, the doctors testifying that in their opinion it in all probability passed through the base of the heart.
…..The arguments were concluded before the dinner recess, and the case was given to the jury after a strong charge by Judge Klugh immediately after court reconvened at 3.30 o’clock yesterday afternoon.
…..Messrs. W. H. Hunt and George R. Cromer made the opening arguments for the State , and were followed by Mr. Blease for the defence, Solicitor Cooper closing for the State . The arguments were unusually strong and forceful.
…..The jury retired to the room at 4.10 o’clock yesterday afternoon and at six thirty had not reached a conclusion.

Notes for MARY BETA LEAVELL:
My grandmothers' name, Mary BETA Leavell, came from her being the 15th child, and running out of names. Family members, all put names in a hat, and drew one out. Obviously, someone liked the second letter of the Greek alphabet, and that was it, It was pronounced Beetah- long e, short a.

Mary, after caring for her father and uncle in their last days, nursed the dying wife of Rev. George A. Wright of the Newberry Baptist Church. She afterwards became the second wife of Rev. Wright and had a daughter, Frances Elizabeth Wright.

329. JOHN DAVID LEAVELL (WILLIAM PAGE, JOHN, ROBERT, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born October 03, 1841 in Newberry County, South Carolina, USA, and died April 24, 1925 in Kerr County, Texas, USA.

Leavell is buried in the Concord Cemetery, Concord, Leon, Texas and her tombstone says "wife of J. D. Leavell". Her dob is January 7, 1843; death date March 9, 1875. That would make her the mother of his first four children! Indeed, Martha's death certificate gives her mother as "LUCINDA ROARK."

Biography Index to “Kerr County 1856-1976" pages 304-5:

.....John David Leavell was born in Newberry SC on October 3, 1841. When he was 16 years of age he moved to Texas, locating in Jewett, in Leon County. He served in the Confederate Army and in the Civil War and was wounded, besides suffering many hardships. In 1875 he was married to Miss Louisa Bailey, this union being blessed with five children. Mr and Mrs. Leavell moved to Kerr County in 1880 for the benefit of Mr. Leavell’s health. He was afflicted with tuberculosis and was in such a weakened condition that it was necessary to carry him on a stretcher. It required three weeks to make the trip from Leon County to Kerry County, a distance of 365 miles in an ox wagon.
.....Mr. Leavell farmed for a long time, interspersing this labor with that of freighting. He made numerous trips to San Antonio in the early days, and he helped to haul lumber for the first church building in Kerrville, the old Union Church.
.....Mr. Leavell was a man of active disposition, and was not content to retire at the age of three score and ten as most men, but continued to work with his team around the city until a few days before his death, which occurred April 24, 1925. Mrs. Leavell passed away nine months later than her companion of fifty years.

There is another small mention on page 144:
J. D. Leavell, father of County Judge John Leavell, began freighting in the 1870’s for August Faltin from San Antonio to Comfort and on to Kerrville for Capt. Schreiner. When the rail line reached Kerrville he switched operations westward.

Here is the article in which Sarah (Perry) Leavell is mentioned. It is on pages 768-769 of the 1880 Miami County History:
CARY FURNAS, (deceased); was born in Newberry District, S.C. June 19, 1803. His father, William Furnas, located on northeast quarter of Sec. 28, in Newton Township, in October, 1806. Here Cary was reared. He made his first location just south of the homestead, and at the end of six years, in 1832, he located on Sec. 2, where his death occurred, at the age of 69. He married Matilda Leavell 1825. Of the six children born to this union, two died in infancy, and one lives, at the age of 33. Matilda is the daughter of Robert and Sarah (Perry) Leavell. Robert was born Oct. 22, 1780, in South Carolina, and in 1805, came to this state; in 1807 or 1808, he located on Panther Creek, in Newton Township, where he established the first home in that part of the township; in 1812, he moved with his family, south of West Milton; during the war of 1812, he served as a teamster, and at close of war returned to his farm on Panther Creek, where his death occurred at the age of 87. He took a great interest in the welfare of his country, and voted at every Presidential election from his majority till his death. His wife, Sarah, died March 31, 1864, age 82 years. He had a family of four sons and four daughters; the daughters still survive.

Notes for WILKINSON PEARSON:
.....Wilkinson Pearson was born on 30 Jun 1803 in Bush River, Newberry County, South Carolina. He died on 13 Apr 1882 in Covington, Ohio. He was born in South Carolina and died near Covington, Ohio. I think his homeplace, of 320 acres, although I have not checked the record, was in Sections 1 and 12, in Township 7N., Range 5E. Panteher Creek runs through this farm. After retiring from the farm, he owned 70 acres in Section 28, Township 8N. Range 5E., where he lived the remainder of his days. He married Eleanor Leavell. Her father was Robert Leavell, but I am unable to learn where she was born or the name of her mother. She died in Covinton, Ohio, in 1898. Her age was a little over 93. Wilkinson's grandson, Richard Pearson of St. Francis, Kansas, wrote me that Wilkinson was kicked by a mule during the Rebellion and never got over the injury. It gave him trouble from time to time and he required the attention of a doctor. At the time of his death, calling the doctor had been neglected until it was too late. After he and his brothers were married and settled in life, they had a reunion, and it was found all of the seven brothers were addicted to the use of tobacco, probably chewing it. They all agreed to quit, and all of them stuck to it except Wilkinson. Wilkinson was the last of these seven brothers to pass away.
Sarah Bailey said:
....."Here I go to Uncle Wilks, as they call him, another good man. He and his wife are "Newlights" or Christians. They live eight or ten miles northwest of the rest, not far from Covington, a little town near the Line. He had a nice property, yes, a pretty home. I loved to visit them. They have a nice building, nicely arranged. Plenty to do, with several children. Each one has his place and work. One to do the feeding, some to milk, some to feed the calves. At least it was so, when we were there. Everything in order, Pearson-like. They are an orderly people. I love them for it. The last time I was there it was in '63. The time of the war. The children all gone but a daughter and a daughter-in-law. Her man was in the army. Also some of the other boys. One of them got his head shot off. We went to visit the children that live near them. All have nice farms and nice little cottage houses. James had come home from the war sick. He wanted a squirrel. His wife took the gun and went out ahd killed him one. She had a crop of corn she had raised herself. Did the ploughing and all. We had a very pleasant visit with all of them, went back then to Uncle's. They told about how brave the girls were. Uncle had his father-in-law's estate to settle. And he sold the property and had the money. I cannot tell, I think three or four thousand dollars, in the house. They went on a visit not thinking of the money, neither did the girls, until they were gone. Then they were put to their wits to know what to do with it, so many bush whackers around. So when they retired the babe was in its crib by the bedside. They loaded the gun and laid it across the crib, and it fell in the night and shot a hole through the carpet and floor. I saw the hole. The Pearson pluck all through. Yes, we enjoyed ourselves for a season."

When less than twenty years of age she was married to Harrison Leavell of Miami County, by whom she had nine children. She was left a widow in the early 1850's. She then married George Coats by whom she had four children.

Notes for ROBERT M. LEAVELL:
To: Amos Muron Perry, Murray County, Georgia
From: Amos Perry, Covington, Miami County, Ohio
Relationship: Uncle to nephew
Date: February 4th 1850
Dear Nephew,
.....I have delayed too long in answering your kind letter which gave us much satisfaction to hear of your health and the welfare of the friends. Through the blessing of God we are at present enjoying tolerable good health. Your Uncle Robert Leavell had his arm broken lately. There was a great mortality in our Town and neighborhood during last summer, with the cholery*‹mostly all died who had the complaint. I think there were as many as forty or fifty deaths of cholery in our Township. This winter there are a great many deaths of Winter Fever, there have been a good many cases of Smallpox in the town.
.....I was glad to hear that Nathan was going to school‹I say hang on Nath, and you will make a man yet. Our Nath has been at school some 40 or 50 miles from home since the first of October last, he intends going to Colege next season if his health permits.
....You say that you are going West next spring, that is indefinite,‹where is West? Perhaps a little this side of sundown,‹in Oregon I suppose. Were it not for one reason alone, I should be glad to hear that you are going to Oregon, and that is the duty you owe to your mother. ** There is greater inducements to migrate to Oregon than any other spot on God¹s earth. A fortune can be made there in a few years by raising cattle and horses, to say nothing of the land that Congress will donate to settlers.
.....Your cousin Thomas Kyle Perry has left for California by way of Panama, he had the yellow fever very bad when he started to the gold diggings. Hosts of young men are leaving here on the same business, most of them going overland by way of the Salt Lake. Companies are now organizing and offering to take young men for one hundred dollars.
.....Tell Uncle James that young Robert Leavell died of Cholery last summer. Also Mrs. Case of Covington. Childers* and wife were with us last fall in pretty good health.
.....I want you and Nathan to write to me as long as I live, and let me know that you are doing right. I ardently desire your eternal welfare. Tell Uncle James to write to me, and give our love and Respects to your Mother, Caroline and Nathan and to your Uncle James and Wife, and accept for yourself our love and earnest desire for your temporal and eternal happiness.
Amos Perry
P.S. John tells me that he answered all the letters that he received of you. He supposes that one of your letters never came to hand. A.P.

*Cholera in Newberry Township
** ³Duty you owe your mother² probably refers to the fact that, with the loss of her husband and one son, the sons should probably make sure to care for her.
**Amos¹ sister, Phebe was married to Rev. Thomas Childress. In Miami County records this Thomas (Rev) and another Thomas are spelled Childers. Rev. Thomas Childress is also spelled this way, too, in Miami County records.

345. MARGARET ELIZABETH LEAVELL (RICHARD, RICHARD C., ROBERT, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born March 08, 1818 in Newberry County, South Carolina, USA, and died January 14, 1846 in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, USA. She married JAMES M. GARNER Abt. 1836 in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, USA. He was born September 03, 1816 in Alabama, USA, and died November 29, 1904 in Walker County, Alabama, USA. More About JAMES M. GARNER: Burial: Goodsprings Baptist Cemetery. The Taylor Family Tree at http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/14636651/person/159110309 says James Madison Garner and Margaret had Millicent Minerva Garner in 1845 in Walker County, and she married DANIEL JONES and d. 07 FEB 1895 in Alabama. It gives the same birth and death dates. Who's right?

Notes for MARGARET ELIZABETH LEAVELL:
http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/13224738/person/-105149503?ssrc=

If still other ancestry.com trees are correct, Margaret had no children, and James must have divorced her, for he married another woman while she was still alive. For now, we know nothing about this line.

Child of MARGARET LEAVELL and JAMES GARNER is:
.....i.....SARAH PERMELIA GARNER, b. Abt. 1838, Kentucky, USA; m. BAYLESS JENNINGS.

Notes for SARAH PERMELIA GARNER:
OK, I think someone confabulated this connection. There IS a Permelia who married a Jennings and had a Bales B. Jennings, but she's Permelia Perrin who married Young E. Jennings. I don't believe Sarah Permelia Garner married a Bayless or Baylus Jennings. There's also a SARAH PERMELIA LEAVELL who did marry BAYLUS JENNINGS; see below.
