"Traditionally, his (John Bird Burnhams) Mother's (Elizabeth Van Leuvenigh Bird 1835-1900) family had come from Ireland to Virginia with Lord Baltimore. Her colonial ancestor was one of the two brothers of William Byrd of Westover. The story goes that an Irish tutor suggested changing the spelling of their surname to differentiate them from the Birds that fly. The older brother therefore adopted the variation of Byrd. The next (stuck with) Bird; this left for the son's direct ancestor only the original for of the name."

This is from a biography of John Bird BURNHAM, a great-great grandson of Thomas Bird. The author states that the above scenario is unlikely.

Two excerpts from Mary Mayer Birds "Life of Robert Montgomery Bird" includes two accounts of Bird ancestry as follows. One excerpt comes from Robert Montgomery Bird himself. This history, undoubtedly correct in most particulars, is found recorded in Dr. Bird's own handwriting. This was hastily made after an interview with an aged sister of his father... "According to Mrs. Harvey, my fathers great-grandad (it was he who was such a goliath of strength, though old and very fat) was the founder of the family. He was an Irishman, his wife English. He bought lands 5 or 6 miles above Wilmington, on the city road, probably as early as 1700..."

The sister referred to above was Sarah ( no dates ) who married Alex Harvey in 1784. "My fathers great-grandad" in the above quotation would have been Thomas Bird, the subject of these notes.

"Dr Bird used jokingly to say, when the subject of ancestry came up in his presence,' that for his part, he had small cause to boast, being descended from a 'Jail-Bird' -- alluding to the tradition, received as reliable by some members of the family that its founder had been banished to Virginia on the restoration of Charles the 2nd, for his liberal opinions, his brother having paid more dearly with his life."

The Clement E. Foust book on Robert Montgomery Bird has the following:

"The Birds trace their lineage to an old English family from Cheshire, whither they originally came from Ireland. John Bird, one of its members, won eminence in the time of King Henry the VIII....he was successively bishop of Penrith, Bishop of Bangor, and in 1541 First Bishop of Chester. At the restoration, a family tradition avers, two brothers of the name, members of Parliament, voted against King Charles with the result that one lost his head leaving a widow and children in England. The other was banished to America, where his son supposedly began the family line. Certain it is that Thomas Bird settled in Delaware about 1700... If the 'other' son was banished shortly after the restoration ( 1660 ) he
could have settled somewhere in America ( NJ, Penn or Va ) and established a family including Thomas Bird born in 1680. To date no one has been able to document such a connection."

Fact 1: October 19, 1713, Bought 100ac on Red Clay Creek in New Castle Co., DE.
Fact 2: November 20, 1726, Will written. Ebenezer Empson and wife Sarah Bird were appointed execs. John STALCUP, Jean GORDON, D. DRUMMOND, wits.
Fact 2b: In will, he stated his desire that his sons Richard and James be apprenticed to learn trades when they reached 16. Son Empson Bird inherited his landholdings and the younger children and his wife Sarah were to share in the division of his personal estate.
Fact 2c: Eldest son Robert to have all carpenter tools except two axes, one hand saw, and broad axe; son John a black galding and one shilling; to Thomas _____ two years ____; son Joseph and dau Frances five shillings each; to dau Rebecca five pounds.
Fact 2d: Left wife Sara mulatto girl "Nanny." He also mentioned "the child wherwith my sd wife is now BIGG."
Fact 2e: It seems to me, after reading the will, that his first 6 children must've been by a wife before Sarah Empson. He seems to have already given these older children their legacies and EMPSON Bird inherited his "NOW dwelling plantation."
Fact 2f: In his will, he refers to himself as Thomas Bird, Carpenter, of Christian Hundred, New Castle Co., DE.
Fact 3: Buried at St. James Chapel, New Castle Co., Delaware, a small Episcopal chapel, so he must have been a member of the Church of England. But his daughter Elizabeth was baptized (8dec1718) at Old Swede's Church, a Swedish Lutheran church in Wilmington.

Notes for REBECCA LEATH:
Grant, I have never seen any documentation of Betsy's parents. And I have to admit, I think your theory is interesting, but a stretch, no documentation. I will through you a bone - the Bristol Parish register shows a John and Rebecca Leath having a daughter Elizabeth in the late 1740s. I have never been able to place him - unless he is Charles's grandson John - but this really compresses the timeline if Charles Leath was born in 1687. The Albemarle Parish register says Charles was 83 years old when he died in 1770. You try the math and see what you come up with, four generations should take how many years?

WINTON, NC was incorporated in 1766. The bill incorporating the town was introduced in the Assembly by Representative Benjamin WYNN who donated fifty acres as the town common. The town was named for him and was briefly known as Wynntown. The new town was soon made the county seat of government and has remained such ever since.

As the new nation grew prominent New England traders used Winton as their trading point for southern goods. Among them was Elkanah Watson of Massachusetts who lived nearby and conducted his business in Winton. He later returned to New England where he completed the Erie Canal and began the state fair movement in America. Another was Eli FOOTE, grandfather of Harriet Beecher STOWE, who died while on a trading mission to Winton and is buried in the Colonial Cemetery here. The river continues to attract commerce and industry as is evidenced by the location of the Easco Aluminum Company within the Town of Winton and the Nucor Steel Mill nearby.

Winton also played a part in the development of the tobacco industry in North Carolina. Here in 1881 David ANDERSON OWEN, tobacco pioneer who had traveled eastern North Carolina with WASHINGTON DUKE, built and operated Northeastern North Carolina’s only tobacco manufacturing factory. The Owen Tobacco Company produced Winton Smoking Tobacco, Owen Plug Tobacco and other tobacco products. Owen’s grave is in the Old Church Cemetery in Winton.

Fishing has played a major role in the history of Winton. At one time the Chowan River teemed with herring and shad in season. The JORDAN family of Winton carried on large seine fishing operations at Mt. GALLANT on the west side of Winton and at BARFIELDS and Petty Shore on the east. Hauls of 100,000 fish were made twice a day. Today the river remains a favorite place for sports fishing. Bass tournaments and other fishing events are held frequently.

During the Civil war Winton suffered its greatest tragedy. On February 20, 1862 the town was invaded by Union troops and burned to the ground. This was the first burning of a town anywhere during the Civil War occurring nearly two years before Sherman’s march through the South. The Federals approached Winton in three gunboats which had come up the Chowan River. They first bombarded the town. Finding it poorly defended they poured ashore plundering and setting fire to the Courthouse and to all of the county’s colonial records and then to every remaining structure in town except a church and one or two houses identified as belonging to Northern sympathizers. The town was virtually completely destroyed. The savagery and brutality of the uncalled for sacking and burning of Winton evoked protests in the North even in New York City from which the Federal troops came. The result for the invading regiment was denial of medals it had received for earlier action and disgrace for its leader.

Notes for EZRA FITCH:
A&F HISTORY

In 1892 Abercrombie & Fitch began under the name David T. Abercrombie Co., a small waterfront shop and factory in downtown New York City owned by David Abercrombie.

David Abercrombie, born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, was a former trapper, prospector, topographer and railroad surveyor. He was also an inventor, an ingenious designer of tents, rucksacks and other camping equipment. It was his love of the great outdoors that inspired him to begin Abercrombie & Co., a shop dedicated to selling only the highest-quality camping, fishing and hunting gear. His clientele consisted mostly of professional hunters, explorers and trappers. And a man named Ezra Fitch.

Ezra Fitch was a successful lawyer in Kingston, New York. Restless and thoroughly bored with his life of law, Fitch spent all of his free time trekking the slopes of the Adirondacks and casting flies into the streams of the Catskill. In his search for exceptional outdoor gear, he had come to rely upon David Abercrombie's shop, becoming one of its most devoted customers.

He was so devoted, in fact, that in 1900 he had convinced David Abercrombie to let him buy into the business and become a partner. By 1904, the shop (which by now had moved to 314 Broadway) was incorporated and the name was officially changed to Abercrombie & Fitch.

Both David Abercrombie and Ezra Fitch were stubborn, hot-tempered men, and they had vastly different views about the future of their business. Abercrombie was more conservative, content to continue the store as it was, selling professional gear to professional outdoorsmen. Fitch, on the other hand, was more of a visionary. He was positive that the future of the business lay in expansion, selling the outdoors and its delights to more of the general public. Long arguments between the two men ensued. Inevitably, the partnership came to an end, and David Abercrombie resigned in 1907.

In the meantime, the store continued to expand. Ezra Fitch was a determined innovator. As a result of his imagination, hard work and sheer force of will, what he created was no ordinary sporting goods shop. Fitch was determined that the store have an outdoor feeling. Stock was not hidden behind glass cabinets. Instead, it was displayed as if in use. He set up a tent and equipped it as if it were out in the middle of the wilds of the Adirondacks. A campfire blazed in one corner, where an experienced guide was always in attendance, imparting valuable information to interested customers.

The clerks hired at A&F were not professional salesmen, but true rugged outdoorsmen. Talking was their pleasure and selling was performed only at the customers' insistence. By 1913, the store moved to a more fashionable and easily accessible midtown address just off Fifth Avenue, expanding its inventory to include sport clothing. A&F became the first store in New York to supply such clothing to women as well as men.

Shortly after Abercrombie's resignation from the company, A&F began publishing a catalog. This impressive book featured 456 pages of outdoor gear and clothing as well as sage camping, hunting and fishing advice to 50,000 prospective customers around the world. Orders soon began to flood in from around the globe, bringing international status to the ever-expanding store.

By 1917, Abercrombie & Fitch moved to Madison Avenue and 45th Street, where it occupied an entire twelve story building. Outside a sign proclaimed "Where the Blazed Trail Crosses the Boulevard." Abercrombie & Fitch had become the largest sporting goods store in the world, as well as the most impressive. A log cabin was built on the roof, which Fitch used as a townhouse. Next to it he had a casting pool installed, where serious fishermen could sample the store's impressive collection of rods and flies. In the basement, an armored rifle range was set up. There was also a golf school, a floor dedicated solely to completely set-up camps, and a dog and cat kennel. In addition to the more standard types of outdoor goods, A&F had a selection of exotic sporting equipment that would make the imagination reel: hot air balloons, yachting pennants, portable trampolines, treadmills for exercising dogs, throwing knives, shirts of chainmail, leopard collars, and everything a person could possibly need for falconry.

Abercrombie & Fitch outfitted many great hunting and exploration expeditions, like Theodore Roosevelt's trips to Africa and the Amazon and Robert Peary's expedition to the North Pole. Ernest Hemingway bought his guns there. Presidents Hoover and Einsenhower relied on A&F for the best fishing equipment. Other famous clients included Amelia Earhart, Presidents Taft, Harding and Kennedy, the Duke of Windsor, Bing Crosby, Howard Hughes, Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Clark Gable. And there was more: Cole Porter ordered his evening clothes from Abercrombie & Fitch. During Prohibition, A&F was the place to buy hip flasks.

By 1928, Ezra Fitch retired from the business to enjoy his remaining few years in the great outdoors that he loved so much.

Abercrombie & Fitch continued to grow, with stores opening up in Chicago and San Francisco. But by the late '60s the store hit upon hard times and went bankrupt in 1977. Oshman's Sporting Goods, based in Houston, Texas, bought the company. Business wasn't good. The Limited Inc. bought Abercrombie & Fitch in 1988.

And today, Abercrombie & Fitch thrives as an independently-owned entity. Now a powerful lifestyle brand, business is thriving at Abercrombie & Fitch with over 250 stores. This includes 35 "abercrombie" stores, a lifestyle brand for kids 7 to 14 years old. The company also publishes the A&F Quarterly.

At the sunrise of the 21st Century, Abercrombie & Fitch continues its tradition of exceptional quality, service and innovation. The stores are still a hub of excitement and upbeat activity. A&F is a place where friends can come to spend time and find the well-made, stylish and durable goods that Abercrombie & Fitch has been creating for over a hundred years.

Chrstiopher a resident of the said County. Who being first duly sworn doth upon
oath make the following statement. That he is a younger brother of the Petioner
Mary Shanks. that he was born in Halifax County Virginia on the 29th day of
March 1778. That when he was an ifnant or very young his father moved with his
family to the neighboring County of Mecklenbur when the depondent remaidied
until he was about 14 or 15 years of age when hsi father again removed to
Granville County North Carolina very near the Virginia line. That his sister is
the oldest child of his father and is nine to ten years older than himself and
lived in her fathers family until she was about 23 or 24 years old, at which
time she was married to John Shanks which was on the 17th day of January 1793.
She was married in Mecklenburg County Virginia. There was no preacher convenient
in her own county and state and they went over the line in to Virginia. His
siter and the said John Shanks were married by a preacher whose name was William
Goodin. Depondent recollects distinctly sthe marriage for it was about the first

such ? life.
He drew a pension for many years and Deponent has always understood that he drew
eight dollars per month. He also states that his siter is very old and weak and
on account of her debility it would be impracticable for her to come to Richmond

Birth: ABT 1677 in Mattaponi River, King and Queen Co., VA

Note:
Most descendant charts do not show all of these children.

"The proof that JAMES LEA and WILLIAM LEA, the subjects of this article, were the orphan sons of JOHN LEA and ANN LEA, both deceased by 1731, lies in the transfer of 100 acres in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, from THOMAS CRETHERS to WILLIAM LEA, a minor on October 5, 1731, and the subsequent sale of this property by WILLIAM LEA and wife, FRANCES, September, 1752, to THOMAS WHITE.

'On petition of RICHARD
SHACKELFORD & CATHERINE his Wife, Extx of GEORGE PRIDDY, Late of King & Queen County, Deced, &c to have THOMAS CREATHERS attached to give an account and Security for the Estate of JOHN LEA Late of King and Queen County, Deced, he having intermarried with ANN LEA Relict of the said JOHN & removed the said LEA's Deced Estate out of the County of King & Queen into this, and is ging out of the Country &c the said CREATHERS appearing and having proved that he has paid & Satisfied two of the saidf LEA's Deced Orphans & that he was ready to give Security for the payments of the Third. It is therefore Ordered that the said petition be Dismist With Costs, and that the said CREATHERS pay the said SHACKELFORD &c the same, and it is Likewise Considered that the Said CREATHERS (charge) the said Costs against the said Orphans Estate. November the Second 1731. [Ibid., p. 91]

On October 4, 1731, an indenture was signed by THOMAS CRETHERS and ZACHARY TAYLOR, Guardian to WILLIAM LEA, covering "Deed of Lease for Land unto WILLIAM LEA and admitted to record at a Court held for Spotsylvania County, VA, on October 5, 1731, 100 acres. [Ibid., DB B, 1729-1734, pp. 227-31]

"This instrument covered the 100 acres of land sold by said WILLIAM LEA and wife FRANCES on Sept. 1, 1752 to THOMAS WHITE of Spots. Co., VA. THis land can be identified as being the same by its descriptions, there being only minor variations.

"The testimony of THOMAS CRETHERS, above cited, provides proof that there were at least three children of JOHN and ANN LEA. Some researchers have thought the wives of JOHN KEY and RICHARD SHACKELFORD were also children of JOHN and ANN LEA."

Notes for BENJAMIN FRANKLIN GRAHAM, M.D.:
Thanks to Stephen Neal Dennis
for submitting the following information.

Dr. Graham's first wife is buried at Union Ridge, as is his brother (I believe). His
parents are also buried there, but he is buried in Chattooga County, GA at Bethel
Presbyterian Church. Dr. Graham lived in several locations. His Bible was purchased
while he was living at Cedar Grove in Orange County, NC. He was in Wake County, NC
for the 1860 Census. He lived at "Kelvin Grove" at one point, and he may have
inherited his father's house and lived there in Alamance County, NC. I have never
figured out why he moved around so much, as doctors tend to become settled and
develop a reliable practice.

FOUND IN DR. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN GRAHAM BIBLE

Died, at her father's residence, on the 27th ultimo, Mrs. NANNIE D. GRAHAM, consort
of Dr. B. F. Graham of this county, and daughter of George T. Martin, Esq. Of Caswell,
leaving an affectionate husband and an interesting child, with an extensive circle of relatives
and friends, to deplore their irreparable loss. Her severe and long continued afflictions she bore
with unmurmuring resignation; and during her life she exemplified the dutiful daughter,
the affectionate wife, the tender mother. She died in the 26th year of her age, beloved and respected
by all who knew her.

"My weeping relations, my husband and friends,
Whose hearts are entwined with my own,
Adieu, for the present, my spirit ascends
Where friendship immortal is known."

Milton Chronicle please copy.

[April 1855]

Died, on the 6th inst., at his brother's residence in this county, Mr. THOMAS J.
GRAHAM, son of Col. James Graham of Alamance, in the 24th year of his age.
____

DIED at his residence near Subligna, Georgia, on the 5th inst., Dr. B. F. Graham, in
the 47th year of his age.

The deceased was a native of Orange county, N.C., but had been, for three years past,
a citizen of this county.

He was a man of more than ordinary scientific and literary attainments, and had
secured an enviable reputation in the practice of his profession.

In his private life he was an exemplar, for he possessed all those qualities which
constitute the true gentleman and make up an amiable character, and left him without enemies.

He died regretted by his acquaintances, and deeply lamented by his relatives and
intimate friends.

Compelled by ill health to relinquish a calling which he loved, he sought rest in the
retirement of private life, and in that privacy, having served his generation by the will of God,
he fell on sleep -, a sleep from which the Elder Brother shall arouse him, when He maketh up his jewels.

Si queresis vitam amenam, examplum purum et integrum: adspice.

Notes for HENRY WHITTED:
Slavery in Orange County

Slavery was well established in the colony of North Carolina long before Orange County came into being. Slavery was not as important an institution in Orange County as other places. At no time did slaves constitute more than 31 percent of the total population of the county. In 1755 (3 years after its founding) only 8 percent of the families owned slaves. The largest slaveholder at that time, Mark MORGAN, had only 6 slaves. By 1780, however, 3 percent of Orange Co slaveholders had more than 20 slaves. The 1790 census showed 10,055 whites, 2,060 Negro slaves, and 101 other free persons. At that time there were 14 slaveholders who had 10 slaves or more. 4 of these 14 lived in Hillsboro. William COOPER was the largest slaveholder in Hillsboro with 22 and Richard BENNEHAN, a planter, was the largest slaveholder in the county with 24. Others who had 10 or more were George ALLEN, John TAYLOR, Matthew McCAULEY, John HOGAN, homas H. PERKINS with 10 each; Walter ALVES with 11; William SHEPPARD and William O'NEAL with 12 each; Hardy MORGAN with 14; Alexander MEBANE with 16; and a person whose name is not known with 20. In 1860 less than half of all landowners in the county had slaves. Over 40 percent of those had only one slave. The following is a direct quote: "Most slaveholders owned a small number of slaves, hence the relationship between master and slave was very close. The master knew his slaves by name, took a personal interest in them individually, and looked upon them almost as members of his family" In 1860 the 3 largest slaveholders were I. N. PATTERSON with 106, Paul CAMERON with 98, and Henry WHITTED with 78.

140. LEVIAS WALKER12 SHAW (NANCY ELIZABETH11 WALKER, SARAH10 BIRD, EMPSON9, JAMES8, THOMAS7, ROBERT6, JOHN5, THOMAS4, JOHN3, ROBERT2 LE BIRD, HENRY1) was born August 17, 1828 in Orange Co., NC, and died March 31, 1873 in Monroeton, Simpsonville Township, Rockingham Co., NC. He married MARY WALL September 15, 1853 in Rockingham Co., NC, daughter of JOHN WALL and EMILY/PERMELIA WHITSETT. She was born February 20, 1836 in Rockingham Co., NC, and died October 02, 1872 in Monroeton, Simpsonville Township, Rockingham Co., NC.

Notes for LEVIAS WALKER SHAW:
There was a John Shaw (black male, 42) with wife Adia (28), children: Albert (16), Sinda (12), Jona (8), William (7), George (6), David (4), Isabella (2), all listed in the census beside Levi and Mary Shaw in Monroeton. It's likely these Shaws were former slaves of Levias and Mary Wall Shaw and were being listed for the first time in an integrated census. They were apparently still living on or very near Levias' farm. I guess it's possible this John Shaw had been Levias' slave since childhood (they were the same age). This could also be the slave John given Mary Wall Shaw in the division of the estate of her grandfather (James Whitsett) in 1852.

>BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF AARON WALKER (Haywood Co., TN)
>
>The short biographical history that follows was written at the request of
>my children that they might know and thus be able to transmit to their
>posterity the character of their ancestors as best I may be able to
>transmit it.
>
>My ancestors as far back as I can learn came from Ireland and settled in
>Maryland in or about what year, I have never been able to learn --- only
>that it was before the war for independence.
>
>My Great Grand Father was Named John, and in company with one of his
>brothers, Philip, moved and settled in Orange County, N.C., about 10 miles
>North West of Hillsborough before the Revolutionary War and as a soldier
>took part in it on the side of the Colonies, and for Independence, but in
>what division or under what general I have not been able to learn. But his
>son Ashford Walker, Kept his uniform coat that he wore in the service and
>carried it with him when he moved from North Carolina to Haywood County,
>Tennessee, about the year 1830. His daughter Mrs. Wilder who is now living
>assures me that it was well preserved and that she recollects distinctly
>how it was made. It was blue trimed with red and she thinks had some marks
>of being the coat of an officer. I recollect very distinctly up to the year
>1848, that there was a military company kept up in that neighborhood and
>had been for many years before as I was told, and the uniform was a blue
>coat trimed with red straight breated, cut square back from the front, with
>a short square skirt behind. I suppose it was the uniform coat of the
>Company to which my Great Grand Father belonged, as that neighborhood was
>noted for its numerous and patriocit adherents and supporters of
>Independence, the principle of whom were the numerous families of Mebanes,
>who were distinguished for their bravery.
>
>My Great Grand Father married a Miss Ashford and they had Eleven sons, but
>no daughters. As this was somewhat remarkable I will give their names: I
>can not give them in the order in which they were born, but only the number
>of names: William, James, George, Abner, John, Aaron, Philip, Job, Joshua,
>Ashford, and Hugh. Not a one of the number had a double name that I ever
>heard of. They all married and settled within a radious of ten miles and
>all had families and with but one exception, large ones, and so far as I
>know were all highly respectable people. My Grand Father was named Aaron
>and married Sallie Bird, and settled and died in that County. My Father was
>named Empson, a family with which our family was connected as far back as
>we could learn. My father married Martha Currie, whose father came to this
>country from Ireland shortly after the war of 1776.
>
>My Father settled in one mile of the old homestead where he lived from1825
>until the year of 1842, when he moved to Haywood Co., Tennessee and settled
>ten miles east of Brownsville.
>
>I was born in Orange County, North Carolina, on the 4th day of October
>1828, so I was 14 years old when my Father moved to Tennessee. As there was
>not a mile of railroad in the State at that time, we moved in wagons and
>were 33 days on the road.
>
>As we came by the Hermitage, we all went down and made a short call on
>General Andrew Jackson, who came out and invited us in and although but a
>small boy, I was very much impressed with his manner and appearance.
>
>I never could go to school long at a time on account of my health, but
>improved the time I could spare the best I could by studying at home.
>
>My Mother was a good woman -- a strict old time Presbyterian and was
>careful to train her children and to chatechise them and teach them the way
>they should live. My Father was not a member of the Church until a few
>years before his death, when he made a profession of religion and joined
>the Church. My parents raised three sons and four daughters all of whom
>were members of the church.
>
>I made a profession of religion and joined the Presbyterian Church at Union
>on the 16th of August 1846 and was publicly baptised by Rev. J.W. Strother
>of Brownsville, who was at that time pastor of that Church.
>
>On the 13th day of December 1854, I married Martha Hannah, daughter of John
>and Mary Williams. I then settled where I now live, two miles North West of
>Brownsville.
>
>In early life I was inclined to believe in the doctrine commonly known as
>Armenianism, but after studying the Bible as best I could I became a
>decided Calvinist. In Church government, I am a Presbyterian believing that
>to be the form of government adopted by the Apostles. I was first a Deacon
>in the Church, but in the year of 1869 I was elected and ordained a Ruling
>Elder in the Church at Brownsville, to which church I moved my membership
>shortly after I settled there.
>
>In early life I had some desire to be a politician and studied the
>teachings of Jefferson and Hamilton, they being the leaders of the two
>great parties that sprang up shortly after the formation of the government.
>I heartily adopted the doctrines of Jefferson and have been a Democrat all
>of my life. I loved the constitution of my country and was in favor of its
>being observed and obeyed according to what was known as a strict
>construction, which I regarded as essential to our prosperity and peace as
>a great confederacy of States, but when in 1860 I saw that nearly all of
>the Northern States had by their Legislatures, nullified the provision for
>the return of fugitive slaves and some of them had made it a felony for a
>man to even claim one within their borders; and further that time of them
>(Ohio and Penn.) had through their Governors refused to surrender on
>requisition of Governor Wishe of Va. some of the accomplices of John Brown
>in his murderous raid into Va. I came to the conclusion that we had better
>withdraw from the government and established one our own, especially as the
>party that approved of Browns raid, was soon to take possession of all
>parts of the government, so I was in favor of secession and voted for it. I
>believed that we would have war, but was confidant we would be able to
>sustain our intependence. I would have enlisted early that I did, but my
>health was such I could not leave home. I was suffering from an enlarged
>liver, which produced a distressing cough. My friends thought I was taking
>consumption, but early in 1864 fearing that the South would soon be
>overpowered, I volunteered and joined the 14th Tennessee Calvary, commanded
>at that time by Col. White.
>
>My family Physician, Dr. Sevier remonstrated with me and said that I would
>be in a hospital soon. He gave me a certificate as to my health, so that I
>I was not able to stand the service, it would enable me to get a discharge,
> but contrary to all expectations my health improved rapidly, so in a few
>months time it was restored so that I have been a healthy man every since.
>Our Regiment was in active service all year. I was in every fight that the
>Regiment was in, and whenever a call was made for men to perform any
>hazardous duty I was always one of the volunteers. On the 24th of September
>1864, I was wounded in the right fore arm at the taking of a fort on the
>Nashville and Decatur R.R. at a place called Sulphur Trestle in North
>Alabama. I was sent to a hospital at Lauderdale Springs, Mississippi. I was
>soon furoughed and came home, but as the leaders of my arm were served, it
>was several months before I was fit for duty, or able to be of any service
>as a soldier and by that time I saw that the South would have to submit, so
>I did not return to the command as it would only have been to be parolled.
>
>I submitted as best I could to the inevitable and have been as true and
>loyal to the government since I was to it before. I never felt that we were
>rebels, believing that we had the right to withdraw from the Federal
>Government when ever it failed to give protection to person of our
>guaranteed rights under the Constitution, this right having been reserved
>by some of the States when the Government was first founded. I was before
>the war a pro slavery man, but am now glad that it is forever abolished and
>at an end.
>
>There being on Chaplin in the Regiment to which I belonged, a man by the
>name of Coressett and myself agreed at the request of the good men of the
>Regiment to hold and conduct prayer meeting service whenever we could,
>which we did until I left when wounded. The men attended the services well
>and were always very attentive. I found it very profitable to my own
>spiritual interests and it also gave me many opportunities to do good that
>I otherwise would not have had. saw so much wickedness in camp that my soul
>was stired within that I seldom let an opportunity to reprove it pass
>uninimproved, and I was always treated with respect when I did so. I formed
>a very strong attachment for my co-laborer brother, Crossett, but have not
>seen him since I left the battlefield.
>
>I saw many things that amused me, even when under fire. I will give one
>instance. When General Forrester met the Federal General Smith at Oxford,
>Miss. the regiment to which I belonged was sent to the front and a line of
>battle was formed and a skirmish line was thrown forward for two or three
>hundred yards. I was one of the number and when the enemy advanced, as they
>soon did the batteries opened fire and as we were between the lines, but
>below them, the shells flew directly over our heads, making a very
>unpleasant sound as they passed. And to add to this the enemies
>sharp-shooters began to fire at us. The man on my left began to complain of
>being very sick. I told him that I was very hungry as I had not had any
>thing to eat for several days but green corn, for I could not eat the
>hard-tack that had been issued as it was badly spoiled. He told me that he
>had some biscuits in his haversack that I was welcome to as he never did
>expect to need them. I watched my chance and slipped over to him, he turned
>his haversack to me and I thrust my right hand in it and found three large,
>good flour biscuit. I at first thought I would be polite and leave him one
>at least, but my appetite over powered my regard for politeness, so I
>brought all three our with my hand, and then hastened back to my post and
>ate them as quickly as possible for fear I might loose them. Starkey, (for
>that was his name,) soon became very sick indeed and wanted to leave, but I
>told him that the moment he left his post or started back across the field
>that the enemies sharpshooters would bring him down. I laughed heartily
>when I thought what his condition would be that night, as it was late in
>the day and I knew he would not be able to get any thing more, at least
>before the next day. But his loss was my gain that time as the enemy soon
>fell back and Starkey was ordered into line, while I was ordered forward as
>one of the pickets for the night and a part of it was spent in skirmishing
>with the enemy and but for the contents of Starkey's haversack, I would
>have been in a bad fix.
>
>A few days after the foregoing incident, General Forrest seeing that he
>could not fight General Smith to advantage as the forces of the later
>greatly out numbered his, as General Smith had 10,000 infantry, 5,000
>Calvary and forty pieces of artilery, while he had only about 4,000
>calvary, took 21,000 picked troops and early in the night passed around
>Smith's right and dashed for Memphis. The regiment to which I belonged was
>taken, but as I was sick was left, but as soon as I was able to ride went
>to the front, as General Chalmers was left with the balance of the army in
>Smith's front to keep him from knowing that Forrest had left. I went to the
>7th Tennessee Cavalry and to a company that was from my own neighborhood,
>commanded by Captain Davis. I found them in line with the enemy immediately
>in front and momentarily expecting an engagement. I was feverish and
>suffering for water. I saw what I took to be a spring about 200 yards in
>front and about half way to where the enemy was. I told Captain Davis that
>I must have water and that I was going to the spring for it. He asked me If
>I did not see the enemy burning a mill just beyond the spring and if I went
>they would be certain to shoot me, but I was so very thirsty I determined
>to risk it, so mounting my horse I rode leisurely but keeping a sharp watch
>on the enemy. When I reached the spring I found it a strong one, running
>from under a little bluff over clear white sand. I dismounted quickly took
>down the gourd that was hanging by and drank until satisfied, then filling
>my canteen remounted my horse and taking the reins well in my hands rode
>slowly back to the lines. The enemy thinking the game was small, or more
>likely not wishing to bring on a skirmish did not fire at me, for which I
>was very thankful. I rode up to Captain Davis and said to him, I have some
>of the coldest and best water I ever drank and offered it to him and he
>drank heartily.

Notes for MARVIN D. PINNIX:
Double Springs Baptist Cemetery
This cemetery is located on The Maben Sturgis Road about 10 miles north of Sturgis or about 5 1/2 miles south of Maben. The Cemetery is located beside the Church. Last visited Sept. 9, 2002.
I spent a lot of time in Double Springs Community as a child and this Church and Cemetery was called Chestnut Log, but sometimes in the late 70ties people started calling it Double Springs Baptist Church.
The Church has changed from when I was a child, from a white frame building to a large brick structure.

Notes for CHARLES HASTING PINNIX:
Double Springs Baptist Cemetery
This cemetery is located on The Maben Sturgis Road about 10 miles north of Sturgis or about 5 1/2 miles south of Maben. The Cemetery is located beside the Church. Last visited Sept. 9, 2002.
I spent a lot of time in Double Springs Community as a child and this Church and Cemetery was called Chestnut Log, but sometimes in the late 70ties people started calling it Double Springs Baptist Church.
The Church has changed from when I was a child, from a white frame building to a large brick structure.

"GILBERT STRAYHORN, a devout Presbyterian, visited the HAWFIELDS area in 1740. The following year he returned, bringing with him the first group of SCOTCH-IRISH settlers. These included members of the CRAIG, KIRKLAND and FREELAND families. These families originally met for worship at a BRUSH ARBOR south of MEBANE, but by 1755 they had constructed a wooden church. Hawfields Presbyterian Church (the present structure of which dates to 1852) thus became the first Presbyterian Church in the county. It was soon followed by CROSS ROADS Presbyterian Church, located in northern Alamance County and organized in 1783. Cross Roads Church is known as the birthplace of the "GREAT AWAKENING," an evangelical movement which swept the South in the early 1800s. Located on a portion of the old MURRAY PLANTATION, the church received national recognition in 1975 because of its association with ALEX HALEY's ROOTS sage."
