[NI0090] It is believed by Ina Mae Hardin that this is the child that died in the arms of Virginia Rogers.

[NI0112] Military and Civic Service
Earley served in the Confederate Army enlisting 2 June 1864 and discharged honorably 12 May 1865 at Kingston, Ga. He was in Company H., 2nd Ga. Calvary, Cruse's Brigade. He was transferred to Woffards Brigade about August / September 1864. All of his prior regiment with the exception of the Horstlers had been killed.

In his soldiers application for Confederate Pension dated 17 Feb 1917, he states that he had moved to Texas 19 Mar 1885 and had resided in Lampasas since 1904. At first, his application was rejected because the value of his property was greater than the allowed amount of $1000. He had sold some of the property to pay for medical bills and requested a review of his situation. He was approved in April of 1917. He died 4 months later at his home.

[NI0123] [NICHOLS FAMILY 7 .ged]

1st wife.

[NI0134]

[NI0156] Born in Georgia, John moved with his family to Texas in 1884. He grew up in Parker County, where he married his wife. He and his brother Tom, married sisters. He was said to be the finest farmer
in the county and had one of the first cars. John had been cutting wood all day and it was real cold. He developed pneumonia and died from it.

[NI0198] Quinton Demas Rogers was born in Forsyth County, Georgia. In 1884 he moved with his parents to Texas and grew up in Parker County, Texas.
Q.D. as he was known, served in the British Navy and had been to Africa. That coupled with his other travels, gave way to interesting stories to tell his family. He adopted his brothers daughter, Rocky, after her death, and raised her in Tennessee. His family remembers him as being very tall around 6'7". He remained single all his life. Q.D. was a very successful leather worker, making harnesses until trackers came into use. He and his brother, Raleigh owned a Hog Farm
near Housron, but due to ill health, he returned to Parker County where he owned a cafe in Weatherford. He didn't have the cafe long before he went to Lowell's home at the old "home-place" for his last days, where he died.

[NI0209] Raliegh was quiet and reserved. He was a policeman in Ft. Worth, he ran a hotel and drove a city bus. A neighbor had told him that his wife was having an affair with another man. He went to the place of business of the other man, shot him from behind and walked out. After the trial, he was judged as insane and sent to Rusk. He stayed there for about 4 months and was released. He and his wife were divorced. Raleigh and his wife lived in a small house up in the woods behind Poolville on Toto Rd. He drove the inter-urban (bus) on the North Side of Ft. Worth. He bought a farm in Azle. He and Q.D. bought a pig farm in Houston, but they couldn't get along so they sold it and Q.D. took the money and bought a cafe in Weatherford. This information was given by Hester Ann Rogers Burt.

[NI0279] information gotten from darriel casperson

[NI0426] A few years after their marraiage, Lorena and John must have followed her family to Texas. John Dobbs showed up on the 1890 tax rolls of Hill County. By 1902, the family was living in Van Zandt county near Edgewood. John died of Black Jaundice in Van Zandyt county. After John's death, Lorena and the family moved back to Hillsboro to be near some of her family.

Lorena married the second time to John Fawcett. John a widower with several children had been born in England and had come to the United
States around 1895. Lorena and John had one daughter of their own who was slightly younger than Lorena's oldest grandchild. Lorena and John
owned a grocery store in Hillsboro. Lorena and John both died in
Hillsboro and John is buried between his two wives in Ridge Park
Cemetery in Hillsboro, Texas.

[NI0428] Sam said that he came to Texas when he was thirteen. In 1900 he was living in Coleman County with his brother William. He married Ina Bell in Hillsboro. She died 6 June 1933 as did their son who is buried with her. Sam lived in the IOOF home in Ennis, TX in his later years. he would walk the several miles from the home to his nephew, Same Jones Dobb's house, to get a good cup of coffee and to get away from all the "old people".

[NI0429] BIO:He was found in the 1920 census in Nolan County, Texas with his wife,
Josie. His sister, Lucy, would ride the train to Sweetwater to
visit her brother.

[NI0430] Lucy and F.M. Murphy had one daughter. After his death, she married Randall Upton. Randall worked for the railroad. They lived in Hillsboro before moving to Smithville in Bastrop County. Randall died in Dallas county. By the 1930's, Lucy had moved to Ft. Worth with some of her children.

[NI0903] Burial Location: Buford Cem, Buford, Ga. On her tombstone reads, "Rest mother rest in a quiet sleep, while friends in sorrow, o're thee weep"
In the same plot are W.R. Terry b 10-26-1869 d 11-16-1922 and Lizzie Terry b 4-4-1870 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Probably the son of Virginia.

[NI1091] The 1870 Census must have been taken after Thomas died, as Jane is listed as head of household and Thomas is missing.

[NI1220] First Spouse: W. W. Harris: His name is Walter, don't know which W of his name it is. From Census records Mary Ann's date of birth is estimated. Using that date, her date of death is also estimated based on an announcement in the paper listing her age at the time of death. June George sent me a copy of the announcement which read:
Funeral Service for Mrs. Mary Rogers Harris, 59, who died at her residence, 408 Diamond Avenue, were held yesterday afternoon at Shannon's Mortuary. Rev. David Orvin officiated and burial was at Oakwood Cemetery. Mrs. Harris, native of Georgia, had lived here 30 years. Survivors are a daughter, Miss Berta Harris, and a son, B.D. Dumas.

[NI1361] William Davis was Captured 16 May 1863 at the BATTLE of CHAMPION HILL in Vicksburg, Miss. during the Civil War. He was sent to Fort Delaware as a prisoner of war. He died from small pox 2 months later and is buried in the National Cemetery, Finns Point, Salem, New Jersey.

[NI1384] MOTHER: Mary DODD Stephens parents had 11 children of which he was the second born.
Burial Location: Buford City, Georgia On his tombstone is a carving of rooftops with an inscription,
"In my fathers house are many mansions". He was a Mason, a Confederate War Soldier, Co H-2 Ga and a policeman for Atlanta for 14 years.

Will of Francis M Cawly Dated Oct 1863 Forsyth Co., GA Sisters; Elizabeth J Cawly, Viannah Cawly
Mentioned he had Five Brothers; Henry P Cawly, James C/O Cawly Only gave names of two brothers
Wrote Will before going to serve in Civil War Probate Jan 1866 F. M. Cawly Located in 1850 Census Forsyth Co., GA Dwelling 39 age 15 with Parents Cornelius & Elizabeth Cawly, sisters E J & Viannah.
This is the brother to Vianna and Juda Ann Cawley who married Rogers brother, Thomas and William.

[NI1776] Democrat Newspaper, Dec 20, 1907.
Death of Mrs. T.J. Rogers...Mrs. Rogers, wife of T. J. Rogers, died Nov. 28 of pneumonia at her home in Dallas and the body was shipped to Poolville for burial. The funeral occurred at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov 30. Mrs. Rogers was formerly Miss Rockie White, daughter of Jno. White of Roanoke Texas, where she married Thos. Rogers in 1901. Since their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Rogers have lived most of the time in Fort Worth and Dallas. Mrs. Rogers was 24 years of age, and had lived an selfsacrificing life, lived for the pleasures of others rather than for herself. No one who knew her could say aught against her, but loved her instead. She leaves a husband and three little girls to mourn her loss.

[NI1777] BAGLEY pg 672
In the memoriam for Early Rogers, listing Thomas as Early's father, it states that the father of Thomas is John Rogers who died in Jackson Co., Ga. in 1851.

[NI1781] [NICHOLS FAMILY 7 .ged]

2nd husband

[NI1808] Cyrus was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Little. Their farm was near Sheltonville (present day Shakerag) and strattled the border between Forsyth Co and Milton Co, GA. There were Rogers living on both sides of the border as well, and plenty of opporunities for Cyrus to meet and marry one of the many Rogers daughters available.

The names and ages of Cyrus and Minnie's children come from the 1880 Forsyth Co census and from some family records. The only child in question is Cotterson N, who was not on the 1880 census.

The marriages of the children come from Milton and Forsyth county records. I'm reasonably certain these are correct, though I haven't found any descendents, except for William Thomas's son, Journey Little. (I can't read about him without the tune "going to take a sentimental journey" playing in my head!)

William, Martha, and Journey show up in later Milton Co censuses, and I think Journey was an only son. I don't know if he married or had children, but he died in Nov 1986 in Austell, Cobb Co, GA.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://www.mindspring.com/~ednab/littlecw.html
Cyrus N. Little also grew up in Milton Co, and married Nancy Marietta Rogers in 1861 in Forsyth Co (where he moved after the war).

Cyrus enlisted as a private on July 4, 1861. He was wounded in the left leg, requiring amputation below the knee, at Mechanicsville, Virginia in 1862, and discharged that year with a disability at Richmond, Virginia.

Both Cyrus and James were sons of Thomas Little who lived for 40 years on the south side of McGinnis Ferry road in Milton Co. Thomas Little has a brief mention in a colorful account by Ted Brooke of Cumming, GA (see http://www.terrystexasrangers.org/roster/s/street_s.html) when Yankee soldiers "came down the McGinnis Ferry Road and went as far as the Tommy Little place" in 1864.

[NI1837] There is a Thomas E Rogers on the 1900 census for Cobb County, listing a wife, Susan and a son Thomas E, born Feb 1895. The age for this Thomas is in the same age group, but not knowing the wife's name, it is not known if this is the same one. Thomas is listed as a grocer.

[NI1839] ~BOTHER INFORMATION: ~b
She is not listed as the daughter of Thomas but is in his family plot
Could she be the daughter of Wm H.H. Rogers listed as Hanah S. at the
age of 5 on the Census of 1880? This would make her the g-daughter
of Thomas and Jane

Posted by DIAN BURT :
I don't have any information on Sophronia Rogers other than she was married to my G.UNCLE, WILLIAM T. Martin. They were married on Dec. 25, 1892, Forsyth Co., Ga., by HC CONNER, Minister of Gospel, recorded in book F, page 339 and in my G.Father's bible. After they married, they moved to Sand Mt. Alabama where William's oldest brother Davis and his family lived. He went to work with the railroad moving coal from the mines. He died on June 15, 1902
from complications due to an accident in which his legs were severed from being caught between two cars on the train. My information is that he and Sophronia had a daughter but I have no information about her. Sophronia brought him back to Forsyth Co. for burial and died a short time later from a broken heart. I had heard that they were buried at Haw Creek Cem. close to William's father, Jeremiah M.M. Martin. I have a picture of Sophronia and also one of William, but none of them together.

[NI1850] Information obtained from Greenwood and Shannons Funeral Home:

Marie Culberhouse of Bowie is listed as a grandparent in the death notice of Terry Raleigh Price. Terry was a grandson of Raleigh. It was believed that she had remarried and moved to Bowie. This would seem to support that belief.

[NI1866]

[NI1883] The estate settlement of Mary Staton (the elder Mary) and the wife of Jacob Pettyjohn in Jackson Co., indicates that Mary was a Pettyjohn. Jacob Pettyjohn leaves land to "my nephew Fleming Staton." The family has always known that Fleming was a brother to Jacob Rogers' wife Mary
The sons of Jacob Pettyjohn were William, Reuben, Abram and James. Abram married the daugher of Enoch Rogers, Sr while James married John's daughter Temperance. J.Z. Hudgins descended from James and Temperance. A will of Abraham Pettyjohn dated 1818 in Chowan Co, N.C. names sons, Jacob, James, Abraham, John J, Isac and Abner (wife Susanna) from Sylvia Gailey Head.

The Inventory and appraisement Feb 18, 1865 of Jacob Rogers estate:
750 acres land $12,000.00
1 negro woman and child Eliza 3,000.00
1 negro girl Julia 3,500.00
1 negro boy Berry 2,500.00
2 males 3,200.00
Total inventory 34,069.00
appraisers M.W. Finger, J.C. Highsmith, Edward Hooper, and A.K. Staton

Lee told Sylvia that Jacob had many slaves who were free before the war and he operated a government distillery on Flat Creek in 1839 Schools Hall Co, "That Capt. Rhymes District be styled #10 ac and Jacob Rogers, Wm Armor and Joseph W. Harrison be appointed trustee " 1844 Jacob Rogers reported 21 pupils in District # 810.

[NI1884] Immigrated from Jackson Co, Ga to MidwayCommunity Ga about 1840. He was one of the first trustees of Holbrook Campground. He came with 15 others, bought land or traded for it and moved to what is now Midway community. Among the people were Parks Bell, Margaret Ezzard, Tom Rogers and Parks Rogers.

Enoch settled just off of what is now Hopewell Road at a place since called the Jubal Clark House; Enoch was the original owner. It burned down in 1964.

Occupation in 1840 was Farmer. Owned 120 acres

Sue, I'm sorry I don't have Temperance Rogers' mother's name. I am enclosing a "report" on the Pettijohn family as I have the information now. I do have Temperance Rogers' grandfather, and I'll get that and send it to you tomorrow. I'll try to do some investigation to see if I can find out this information for you (there might be some property records which would give us a clue). Thanks for your file. Attached is a copy of my report.

[NI1886] The 1830 Census for Jackson County Ga listed Moses Ridling with the following:

Permilla Rogers Rowland would have been about 38 years of age in 1850. If she died between 1845 and 1850, and John Rogers' will was made in 1849 and probated Oct. 1851, she must have been living when the will was drawn up. The census could be wrong for there were many errors made. I could not find later marriage of Rowland in orhter Coweta County census. Did she recieve her share of the estate?


The IGI lists her marriage name as Pamula Rogers.

[NI1986] A letter John wrote home to Nancy on April 10, 1864 reads:

"Dear wife and children, these lines leave me well at this time hoping they may go safe to hand and find you all well. I have no news to write at this time, only I received a letter frome(sic) G.W. and one from J.T. the other day. They were both well when the wrote. My business is to haul wood in the coaling ground or to slid it as they call it, and it is very heavy and had(sic) work. But I d no not intend to work fast nor hard at it. I am going to take my time at the work. We all work in the same caoling ground and it is very ba work on my clothes. But I will take as good care of them as I can. Nancy, I will not give you a hin about old (name omitted) but a warning. I want you to keep everything hid. Keep the ez and hoes and plows and mattoxs(sic) and shovel and spade and brierhook(sic) and everything else hid, only when you are work with them, for this reason: The Adams and Tirley all say that old (name omitted) will steal any and everythin he can get his hands on. Keep your eyes open and watch as well as pray and have nothing to do with them folks. Write to al the news that you heare(sic) and tell your father to write me all the news. Write if you have heard anything of Bud. Write if anybody head or runaway since I left. Write to me on the other side of this letter. I must come to a close for this time. Write as soon as you get this letter. I am yours as ever. Goodby(sic)."

Their son, Henry Thomas Rogers, related that as a boy of 10 he stood on Hopewell Road, and watched for his father to come home, but he never saw him again, nor did they know for sure what happened to him.

Proof was finally found by a great-granddaughter, Anne Rogers Ferguson, in the Georgia Archives.

A military memorial grave marker was erected in Midway Methodist Church Cemetery beside Nancy Ezzard Rogers' grave in August 1982.

[NI2005] Flora Becket has the death date as 2 Jun 1861.

[NI2006]

[NI2008]

[NI2012] Married the sister of Jane and Eliza Whitmire. These two sisters married Thomas and James Rogers respectively.
"The History of Forsyth County, Ga 1832-1932", BAGLEY page 94
He moved from Jackson Co to Forsyth Co sometime between 1840 and 1845. He had a reputation as a substantial, law-abiding citizen, and was elected several times constable of the 795th District.

[NI2015] Husband and wife are buried at Harmony Hall Baptist Church Cemetery-old part of Hall County, near Gillsville, GA.

[NI2017] Killed by stray bullet - he was walking down the old State Road near their home. Hunters fired a gun and the bullet hit a rock and then him. He is buried at the family cemetery.

[NI2023] [pettyj~2.ftw]

There is much confusion about the name of Mary Whitmire. Her marriage license lists her as Mary M. Whitmire. The 1850 Forsyth County census lists her as M M Pettyjohn. She is Mary in the 1860 Forsyth County census, Meary A. in the 1870 Forsyth County census, and Mary M. in the 1880 Forsyth County census. Her tombstone at Crossplains Baptish Church on McGinnis Ferry Road in Forsyth County, lists her as Mariah H. Pettyjohn.

Milford's name has been found spelled many different ways.

Milfard

Milford is found on the 1845 Tax roll for Forsyth Co., GA. In 1850 I can not find him on the Forsyth Co., Census. He is on the 1860,1870, and 1880 census. Where could he have been during the 1850 census? Could he have been in the Mexican war?

Milford Gray is bur. at Shake Rag cem. Behind Shady Grove Bab. Church off McGinnis Ferry Rd (you have to go up behind the church, small dirt road off to the right) several Gray's are bur. there.

The enormous Settles Property is in the second district, first section of Forsyth County. Mining activities were carried out on land lot 934, which is the Settles Property. Jack Rogers was a miner who worked on the Settles' and Collins' properties. The Collins' were very wealthy and had twenty foot shafts that were mined. The refractory nature of the ore caused the abandonment by Mr. Rogers. He traveled to Settles Property and started work there. Several Shafts were put into a large sulfide vain, and this marked the extent of the operation. Finding the ore did not freemill, the miners quit (Shadburn 61).

The house on Settles Property was a large house for those times. The Chimney is dated back to the year 1839. In 1839 Mr. Graham kept a store in the front of his house. Later, the house went through the hands of the Cawlys. Mr. Cawly was married to a Terry family member. The Terry's originated from
Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and into Georgia(Massey). After a while, the house belonged to a Martin Terry. Mr. Martin Terry had two sons John and Stephen Terry. John was born on August 9th of 1848. He married a lady named Ada Ann Settles. They ended up having eleven
children. Of those children, James Martin Terry kept the house. After he died, his heirs sold the house to a Mr. Settle. This Mr. Settle was married to Martin Terry's Granddaughter. The Terry's were strong Christians and church going people. On July 16, 1846, Sharon Baptist Church was constituted. Mr. W. R. Settles was at the church every day trying to help construct the church perfectly. Mr. Settles was a
Deacon of ministry at Sharon Baptist Church. This church is still in use today. Sharon Baptist Church is located at 3149 Old Atlanta Road and now has a new sanctuary(Shadburn 151).

Later through the years, Mr. Settles had a son named J. S. Settles, who became a Reverend at the Shady Grove Baptist Church. Churches back then cost a lot to build. To people in the 90s it is not much but 5 M Boards were 18 cents each, and the 2 M Boards were 20 cents each. The nails were also very cheep. Enough nails to build a church cost a dollar. The final cost of the church was 99 dollars. Around 1893, J.S. Settles became a Reverend at this church. Then, he became a Pastor between 1893-1911. Shady Grove Baptist Church is not around anymore. On the land now is Shady Grove Lawn and Landscaping Company(Shadburn 815). Around 1910 J. S. Settles father William Settles was a Deacon at Pleasant View Baptist Church. A Deacon is a cleric ranking just below a priest in churches. He helped establish this church on July 29, 1910. Pleasant View Baptist Church is located at 817 Peachtree Parkway, right down the street from South Forsyth High School, still standing and still in use(Shadburn 801).

Here's some more things I found. The marriage record is in a book of abstracts of records. No other info. I forgot to get the author for you. Manerva/Minerva. I wonder what the accurate spelling is. It was spelled several ways in the census records and with an "a" in the marriage record book.

There's a subdivision called Nichols Creek Subdivision in Cumming. I'll have to ask my husband if there really is a Nichols' Creek or if he knows where the subdivision is. If it's west of town I bet it's on the old Nichols property or in the area. My husband, John, would know. He lived in Canton, which is west of Cumming, I think, then worked extensively in the Cumming area a few years ago doing a pest control route. He'll know where it is or can find out. If F. H. valued his property in 1870 at $3000 it had
to have been substantial. Property values here after the war were so low. And I wonder what "The Nichols House" was? I'd be curious. After all, Frank is my gr. gr. gr.?uncle? I guess that's right. He's my gr. gr. gr. grandfather's brother.

This was good for me. I did verify through the census records that Frank & Milo's mother was from PA. That was a question in my records. I still don't know anything about her family. But now I can look for a Smith family that moved from PA to Erie CO., NY in the early 1800s. That's a help.

I'll keep Frank in mind when I go back to the library. Probably Friday. I'll also check & see if Forsyth Co has any kind of genealogical society if you're interested. It sounds as if Frank was prominent in the area for his time. It would probably be easy to track down more descendants.

That's all for now. Please let me know what you think about all this.
Gwen

Yes, he was a doctor, probably here in Marietta according to Milo's letter. Milo tells him in the letter that he (Frank) should come and practice in Vandalia, IL where Milo lives. That he would have plenty of work and the area needed a doctor. I'll find that letter and get you a copy. I don't have anything on Frank's family coming forward in time--only our shared ancestors of their father and back. I'll see what I can find in the GA files tomorrow.

Letter from brother Milo to Hiram:

Vandalia Ill. July 30th 1865

To Hiram Nichols, Dear Brother

It is now over four years since I have had the pleasure of receiving a letter from you. Years of much trial to me. First I was fearful that you had perished at the hands of the public enemies, as a man by the name of Nichols was killed west of Cha ttanooga near the time that you left Cummings, and I thought that it might be possible that you were the man until I learned better afterwards. Second your state has the unenviable fame of the Theater of the suffering and death of my eldest son. T he bones of Chester lie mingled with 912 of Illinois' fair sons martyrs to Liberty at Andersonville grave yard. I have no doubt that you wrote the truth in one of your last letters to me, that there were thousands of men in the South who deserve d death at the hands of the public executioner.

I understand by Calvin' letter to me of the 17th of this month, that you have moved to Marietta. One of my neighbors tells me it is but a small place gone to waste since the war of not much importance now at this time.
Now I propose again to you, together up what you can and come to me as quick as you can. This township in which I live is six miles by seven. It is quite thickly settled by an enterprising peaple and there is no physicians within its boundary an d I do not know of any one coming into it. If you were here I have not the least doubt but that you would do well in your calling besides living in peace and prosperity among honest quiet and industrious peaple and I could render you some assistan ce in getting a start here.

You can come to Vandalia Ill. in three days time from where you live. I live on the east bank of the Okaw river 12 miles from Vandalia. Cross the river on the National Road Bridge thence 2 miles S. East where you will find a road leading north t o my house. If you were here now you would find plenty to do at this time as the peaple have to send a long distance for medical assistance.

Electa is married and has a little girl named Ida. Mary is engaged in teaching school. John is going to school. Adelia assists her mother in housekeeping. Geneva and Lena are to small to go to school yet. Father was here in June last the first tim e I since I was married. He got home safe. It is now 24 years since we were married. Out of eight children six are living yet. I am getting gray haired, my eye sight has begun to fail, my teeth are nearly gone and I have plenty of work to do but l ittle help. Our health is good in general with some exception. We have plenty an enough to eat and to wear. Warm and pleasant weather etc. Let us be truly thankful to a kind Providence who has preserved us hitherto. Write or come soon. direct to V andalia, Ill. Our love to you all.
Your Brother M. Nichols

Does this mean that Elizabeths's husband died prior to the 1790 census?
This appears to show that the two, mother and daughter lived next to each other and that John, Enoch and another daughter lived with Ruth.

Do we assume the William Hancock that witnessed the will of Jacob Rogers is the husband of Elizabeth?

In the fall of 1843, a caravan of several families. with John Rogers as the wagon master, moved from Walker County to Arkansas. In Crawford county, they first settled on teh Georgia Ridge, just north of Mulberry. The terrain reminded them of the hills in northern Georgia. They lived there as squatters for several years, then became land owners after the 1862 Homestead Act.

When John died in 1875, he was buried on his land where there are some thirty unmarked graves. His is the only marker in the plot. [rogers v8 tree 2045 enoch rogers.FTW]

There was a lawsuit heard in 1888 entitled James CC Rogers et al vs Cherokee
Nation. This lawsuit stemmed from the children and descendants applying for their Cherokee citizenship and being turned down. The claimants based their claim to Cherokee citizenship based on the fact that John Rogers, the ancestor whom through they claimed, was a Cherokee Indian by blood. John and his wife and children left Georgia in 1843, expecting to come to the Cherokee Nation. But, learning of some internal trouble within the Nation, he located near Van Buren, Arkansas, where he remained until his death. The Special Master ruled that, " I find that the descendants of John Rogers and his parents Enoch Rogers and Katie Rogers were Cherokee by blood. That none of these ancestors ever resided within the present limits of Cherokee Nation, and that they have not been enrolled as citizens thereof since the removal of the Cherokee Nation to its present location, and that they are persons of Cherokee blood."-- This 10th day of June 1897, N A Gibson, Special Master, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Muskogee, Olahoma.

[NI2282] Enoch was married, ca 1790, to Catherine Teague, who was at least half=blood Cherokee. Sometime before Oct 7 1809, the marriage dissolved, as that is when he married Rachel Pettigrew, in Jackson Co., Ga.

In June of 1826, he helped to organize the Holly Springs Baptist Church in Hall County and served as its clerk from then to 1835. He was justice of the peace in Hall in 111828. He was granted his letter in 1837 from the church and apparently moved and died in Walker County Ga sometime in the 1840s. His second wife, Rachel is listed in the 1850 census in the home of Samuel.

After 1868 Perry moved to Arkansas, his second child was born in Arkansas, Perry is listed on the 1870 census living in Pendleton township. After 1890 Perry left Forsyth Co., GA to move to Coryell Co., TX.

I am currently still looking for relatives in Texas.

Perry P. Gray after 1870 is listed as a Doctor and in the Texas death index he is listed as Dr. P.P. Gray.

[NI4352] [devore.ftw]

I have not been able to research Molly (this is her nick name) Gray. My Aunt Nora Gray Betsinger told me that this family moved to Bartow, FL and at one time Frank Gray's family (my grandfather) lived in Bartow, FL before the great depression, they worked with the Citrus. Only later to find out Nora Betsinger has a daughter named Bonnie Betsinger and she was best friends with one of Claude Roberts daughters or grand daughters (The Robert family at this time lived in Winter Park, FL, and Claude Roberts was the Mayor of Winter Park, FL).

Benjamin F. Lawson's siblings were George A Lawson, born abt 1849 in Crawford
Co., Ark. Thomas, William, Mary and Joseph. I don't have any info on Thomas
Lawson. William Lawson was a long time hotel operator in Poteau, LeFlore Co.,
Ok. I believe he and his wife are also buried at Poteau, Ok. Mary Lawson
married a Drewery and they lived in the Shady Point area in the early 1900's.
Joseph Lawson married Martha Stone and they have descendants in Arkoma,
LeFlore Co. Joseph is buried at Spiro, Ok. and Martha at the Royal Oak
Cemetery at Poker Bend. From what I have learned these are the children of
Lovesy Ann Rogers Lawson, born 1829, and James Lawson. Lovesy and her family
emigrated from Walker Co., GA in 1843 and settled on Georgia Ridge in
Crawford County, Ark. Lovesy was the daughter of John C. Rogers and Amy
Adams. James Lawson, according to Joseph's son Odell, was killed by
bushwackers in the Civil War and is believed to be buried at Scullyville,
I.T.. Lovesy Lawson died in 1902, near Panama, I.T. and is buried at the
Royal Oak Cemetery at Poker Bend.>>>>>

I descend from George A Lawson's son, George Washington Lawson, born 1884,
at Belmont, Crawford Co., Ark. George W. Lawson married Lillie Lovett, born
1880 also at Crawford Co., Ark.They were the parents of 1. Myrtle birth 1904> 2. Maggie born 1906 at McCurtain, I.T. 3. Arthur
1909 4. Opal 1910 5. Sybil 1919 >>>>>>

Other children of George A Lawson were 1. James Christopher Columbus
Lawson, born 1869, married Susan Ree, I believe their descendants still live
in the Spiro area. James and Susan are buried at Keota, Ok. 2. Thomas Marion
Lawson, born 1874, married Lonie Sims. He and his wife are buried at Stigler,
Haskell County. 3. Elisha "Lige" Lawson, born 1871, married Mary McCoy 4.
Josie Lawson, born 1877, married Grief Johnson and they are buried at
Talihina, Ok... I would love to correspond with anyone working on this
family... Suzy in Pocola, LeFlore County, Oklahoma

Hello from Oklahoma... Yes, my dad is still alive. He is 74 years old and lives in Ft Smith, Ark. His name is Milton Dailey and his address is 7400 Holly Avenue, Ft Smith, Ar 72908. He is the one that did all the research on our Lawson family. I have been blessed in catching the genealogy bug while he is alive to help me. If you would like to write him, feel free. He would enjoy that. He is a semi retired educator. He worked for FS schools as an elementary principal for 33 years and still works as an asst. professor for Arkansas Tech University. I remember when he started his search, he worked so hard, following the family of his mother... I am his 3rd child, born 1958 in Sebastian Co., Ark. I haven't worked since 1992, I was injured in an auto accident while on the job. At the time I lived in Benbrook, Texas and managed a "railroad taxi". I managed to flip off of a low water bridge while driving through northeast Oklahoma, before that I ran a computer lab for the FS schools < from 83-90 >. I have one daughter, Layla Carolynn Brewer, she will be 14 this month. She is a musician, she plays classical piano and violin. I am proud of her. Her dad and I divorced in 91 and I have since remarried < 1995 > Bruce Johnson, born in 1957, Kansas. He works for a drilling company and we live in small town Oklahoma, on my Grandma Maggie Lawson's farm . Bruce's son, Robert lives with us. He is active in basketball and motorcycles. I am definitely a little bit country, so I hope you dont hold it against me:) I can't imagine the big city again... as to Olive's brother William I will have to ask my dad what happened or if he knows... Have you seen what is called "The Cherokee Citizenship Papers"? This is a lawsuit filed in 1888, the principal being James Christopher Columbus Rogers, the youngest brother of our Lovesy Lawson. In this lawsuit he is suing the Cherokee Citizenship Committee for his tribal membership... there are 111 people on this list as of 1888, including a William Lawson of Poteau, OK, but he is Lovesy's son and your William's uncle, he is also the only one of Lovesy's children to join this lawsuit, so I would say by then they were scattered... the Special Master ruled that these people were Cherokee, by blood, through John Rogers' mother, Caty Pettit, but that they had never resided in the "new" nation. This was true, as John Rogers stopped on Georgia Ridge, before they got to Oklahoma... John Rogers was dead before the Dawes Roll, but I believe he is on the 1835 roll of Cherokee to be moved. My personal research is on John's mother Caty. Other info I got from my father. Caty was an "Old Settler", she emigrated here in 1832, before the Trail of Tears. I have land record info on her home in Georgia, if you are interested... I have a few leads on Caty's mother also, if you decide to ever work on her line.... Well, I haven't meant to ramble on you. I am really glad to have found you too... I wonder what Lovesy would think of the world we live in today, I think she would be pleased her family is finding each other:) Best wishes, Suzy

Yes, George Washington Lawson is my great grandpa, the son of George A Lawson and Margaret Rogers... He was born in Belmont, Crawford County, Arkansas, in 1884... He and Lillie Lovett Lawson were kinda dust bowl okies, they left Haskell Co., Ok in the late 1940's and moved to California with their son Bud Lawson. George died in Ventura and is buried in Filmore, Ca., he died in Jan 1950... His wife Lillie, "Mama Mae", is buried with him. Lillie Lovett was born in 1880 at Piney, Franklin Co., Ark. and died in 1966 at Bakersfield, Ca. I never had a chance to meet George, but we went to see Mama Mae one time when I was about 5 years old. I have pictures of her and my dad has pictures of George, I am learning how to use a scanner and when I have it mastered I am going to scan these... Any help on the Rentz line is always appreciated. My mother is still alive and has no real desire to find out about his family, but, I have this need to know... I have to believe he could not have been so bad or my grandma would have never loved him. I grew up thinking my grandma was widowed, but found out that Roy Rentz left her for another woman, in April 1929. That had to be bad enough, but when you factor in she had a son 3 years old with polio and leg braces it is sad. Plus my grandmother did not meet him until 1922, she was 34 years old. She had been raised in a prominent home, her father and both grandfathers were doctors. By the time she met Roy her parents and grandparents were dead...I won't try and describe the poverty my mother endured, but even after all these years she is still bitter. My mother never even saw a picture of him until about 2 years ago... one of her older cousins found one, we were amazed. My mother didn't want to believe it was him, but I can see physical similarities... according to his social security "ss5" he was born 3/10/1884 at Columbus, Ga to Carlos Rentz and Mattie Rowe. I have yet to find them on any census, no traces at all... lots of Rentz' in Ga., none can I tie in... the Rowe's I know little about... I have found the name on the census, but no good matches... I kinda wonder if they were Cherokee or Creek... My mom has a cousin in his 80's that remembered Roy, he said he was olive skinned and very dark eyed... My mother thinks he is German and granted Rentz sounds german, but I don't know yet... You mentioned having a friend in FS? Can I ask her name? I graduated from Southside at FS in 1976... Best wishes from north of the Red river:) Suzy

[NI5445] In the fall of 1854 Rev. H. C. RIDLING came from Mississippi and settled on the Ouachita near where he now resides, about twelve miles east of Dallas. He informs the writer that at that time there was only one cotton-gin in the county, and that one was located three miles northeast of Dallas, and was owned by one KUYKENDALL. This gin had no press, as the cotton was not then baled, and none was then raised except for home use. There was not a steam-mill in the county until about the year 1867, when the ASHFORD steam saw and grist-mill was put on on Dry Creek. There were then only three water-power mills in the county, two of them being on Big Fork and one on Two Mile Creek.

Moses Lemuel Ridling
Moses Lemuel Ridling was born October 31, 1843, in Georgia. He came to Polk County when yet a boy. A few years later he was married to Miss Indiana McMellon on December 24, 1867.

The Ridling home was blessed with eight children. William H. was born Nov. 24, 1868. He married Bessie Barlow. James Monroe was born Dec. 8, 1870, and died in 1874. Ida M. was born June 28, 1875 and died in August 1905. She married William Schoolfield. John Lemuel was born Feb. 24, 1878. He married Nannie Hogan.

Mollie married John William �Willie� Wilkins. Nancy L. was born April 10, 1884 and died in 1889. Bessie Indiana was born Aug. 8, 1886 and died March 7, 1975. She married Mr. Lindsey.

Moses Lemuel Ridling served as a soldier in the Southern army from the beginning to the end of the Civil War, and he often remarked �I have a warm spot in my heart for the rebel soldiers, but I love the northern boys also now.�

Bro. Ridling joined the Missionary Baptist Church in his youth and was commissioned to preach the gospel many years before he was ordained as minister in 1885. He preached many services in the little country churches in Polk County, and held summer revivals under many a brush arbor. He preached at the Vandervoort Baptist Church in the 20�s.

Bro. Moses Ridling�s final summons came early Sunday morning, March 14, 1926. As was the custom of the times, he lay in state in his home. Funeral services were conducted at his home at 4 o�clock Sunday evening. Rev. S.A. Neighbors of Potter, a long time friend and co-worker of the deceased, conducted the service. He remarked that his beloved friend had truly lived a life of love, peace and righteousness.

Henry Milton Wilkins
Henry Milton Wilkins married Polly Moore, November 1881, in Chilton County, Alabama. Polly was born August 11, 1854, and died February 22, 1922.

The Wilkins family left Alabama, came to Texas for a short stay, and arrived in Polk County, Arkansas in 1895, to live the remainder of their lives in the Vandervoort community. Their old two story home is still standing about a mile and a half northeast of the town of Vandervoort. In its day it was one of the best homes in the community.

Henry and Polly had six children. Five children were born in Alabama and one in Arkansas.

John William �Willie� Wilkins was born September 17, 1882, and died April 30, 1957. He married Mary Jane �Mollie� Ridling on August 14, 1902.

Luther Wilkins was born August 23, 1884, and died September 25, 1887.

Claude Wilkins was born August 25, 1888. He first married Lula Blackburn. After her death, he married Ethel Cecil Capehart.

Zora Lee Wilkins was born October 16, 1890 and died June 10, 1911. She married Tom Towry.

Oscar Wilkins was born June 21, 1884, and died March 16, 1935. He married Helen Smith. He taught school at Vandervoort, Arkansas, and was school principal for several years.

Allie Wilkins was born March 5, 1896, and died November 29, 1912.

Mrs. Josie Jewell of Vandervoort, has a picture of her grandfather, Henry Milton Wilkins, operating a hand hay baler on his Arkansas farm. He made the baler and operated it by hand, a slow, strenuous process, but it got the job done in those long ago days.

There is a large plot of the Wilkins family graves in Witherspoon Cemetery near Vandervoort, Arkansas.

John William Wilkins
Mrs. Josie Wilkins Jewell, daughter of John William Wilkins, gave the following family information.

John William �Willie� Wilkins was born near Birmingham, Chilton County, Alabama, Sept. 17, 1882. When he was a young man he moved with his parents, Henry Milton and Polly Moore Wilkins, to Texas, where they lived a short time before coming to Polk County, Arkansas, in 1895. The rest of his life was spent in the Vandervoort community. He was a farmer and sawmill operator. He married Mary Jane �Mollie� Ridling, daughter of Rev. Moses Lemuel and Indiana McMellon Ridling on August 14, 1902.

The Wilkins children were Bessie Lee (May 29, 1908 - Apr. 20, 1973); William Vernon (Oct 8, 1912 - Feb. 3, 1985); Josie May (Mar. 14, 1917); Carl Odell (Nov. 7, 1919 - May 6, 1972); and Otis Victor (July 13, 1922 - Dec. 24, 1944).

Bessie Lee married Roy James, November 11, 1934. Later she married Clifford Wright, Nov. 11, 1973. Bessie was blind for a number of years before her death. Josie Mae married Jess Upchurch May 3, 1933. After his death, May 18, 1973, she married Clyde Jewell. Carl Odell married Dorothy Phillips, Aug. 22, 1942. Dorothy died in December 1986. Otis Victor was not married. He died December 24, 1944, while serving his country in World War II.

Willie Wilkins was interested in church and singing in his community. He and other neighbors built Bethel Chapel Church to serve as a place of worship in their community. Mr. Wilkins served as Sunday School superintendent for many years. His wife, Mollie and daughters were teachers in the Sunday School. Mr. Wilkins loved good gospel singing and arranged for many Sunday afternoon �Singings.� The little country church is still standing, but is not used for services.

The Wilkins family plot is in Witherspoon Cemetery near Vandervoort, Arkansas, in south Polk County.
