Re: my mother is a revels too!

In Reply to: Re: my mother is a revels too! by Dorie Quist of 271


I am part of a group of researchers who are trying to collect info on all the War of 1812 & the Civil War Veteran's of Monroe Co., WI

Two of our veterans are Henry & William J. Revels who enlisted at Sparta, Monroe Co., WI according to the official record. A brother, John W. Revels also served in the war but we can find no proof that he was ever in Monroe Co. We would like information on the date of death & burial for Annis Winchell, wife of Henry.

William d. in the war. Did he ever marry or have children?

I found the following info on the Revels genforum. It was listed by Cheryl Kubicko. Does your info differ from it? if so, how?


1. STEPHEN1 REVELS was born 1747, and died 1803 in Georgia Rockies. He married DELILA BULLARD 1778 in Cherokee Lands.

Notes for STEPHEN REVELS:
Stephen Revels was born in an area that was within the Creek Nation, west of Cherokee Lands in the 1700's. He spoke the Cherokee language and kept Cherokee customs until his death. Stephen's Indian name translates to the english language as "Long Time Hunter". He lived on lands that are today known as North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and Mississippi. He hunted and fished as a means of supporting his family.

2. MYCAJAH2 REVELS (STEPHEN1) was born 1804 in Tallahatchie River Cherokee Reservation, and died April 12, 1888 in Forrest Township, Vernon County, Wisconsin. He married MORNING JACOBS November 22, 1825 in Lumberton, Robeson County, North Carolina.

Notes for MYCAJAH REVELS:
Mycajah and Morning left the reservation about 1820 and relocated to the area where Mycajah's brother's, Henry and William, lived. This is referred to in documentation as 40 miles NW of Macon, Georgia or upper Alabama. Present day, this would be Bibb County, which was established in 1823. The original settlement there being called Newtown, which developed around Ft. Hawkins in 1806.
Prior to the fall of 1825, Mycajah and family left Georgia and went Robeson County, North Carolina. This is known because of North Carolina documentation showing Mycajah and Morning were married in Lumberton. Conflicting documentation (Morning's application for pension for son William's Civil War service, State of Wisconsin) has the date of December 20, 1826. In all likelihood, they were married by tribal custom, repeated their vows in Lumberton to satisfy "polite society".
By 1830, the family had moved back to eastern Georgia. Specifically, Fayette County, south of what would become Terminus, now known as Atlanta.
Sometime around 1833/34, Mycajah moved his family to the Evansville, Indiana area and on to Orange County, Indiana between the years of 1834/36.

Converted to the Methodist church while residing in Orange County, Indiana. Preached in Hamilton and Orange Counties. After moving to Wisconsin, built a church in Revels Valley where he conducted services. The first service Mycajah held was in 1857.

Every summer, Mycajah and Morning would host the Revels family picnic. All their neighbors were welcomed. They would eat, play games and one year they had a merry-go-round.
