Maj. Lewis Calhoun Majet (1836-1922), son of Nicholas and Sarah (Walters) Majet, married Louise Ingram, daughter of Capt. Nathaniel Barber Ingram and Margaret Williams (daughter of Robert Williams & Mary (Turley) Williams).Capt. Ingram's second wife was Elizabeth Majet, sister of Maj. Lewis C. Majet, so Elizabeth Majet's stepdaughter then became her sister-in-law.Records published and recorded during his lifetime spell his name Lewis Calhoun Majet, though his tombstone says Louis Calhoon Majet.
Goodspeed's BIOGAPHICAL AND HISTORICAL MEMOIRS OF MISSISSIPPI (1891), pp. 392-93:
Maj. Lewis C. Majet, planter, Grenada, is a native of the Old North state, born in 1836, and is the second of four children - two sons and two daughters -- born to the union of Nicholas and Sarah (Walters) Majet, natives also of North Carolina, born in 1787 and 1801 respectively.The parents made their home in their native state until 1836, and then removed to Yalobusha County, Miss. (now Grenada county), and settled ten miles east of Grenada, where they improved a good farm of about eight hundred acres.They were among the pioneers, and there they passed the remainder of their days, the father dying in 1859 and the mother in 1872.He was an old line whig, was very active in politics and all matters of public interest.He was a great hunter, horse-racer and general sportsman, but after removing to Mississippi, abandoned all those amusements but hunting, and became a prosperous planter and a representative citizen.His father was a descendant of one of the old French Huguenot families of North Carolina.The maternal grandfather, Lewis Walters, died in North Carolina.He was at one time sheriff of Northampton County.His father was of English descent and was a soldier in the Revolution.Maj. Lewis C. Majet is the only one living of the four children born to his parents.They were named as follows:Cuthbert, who served in the Confederate army and was wounded at Port Hudson.He has never been heard from since Christmas, 1865, when he stopped at a house in Mississippi, en route from his home in Arkansas to Mobile, Ala.It is supposed he was murdered for his money; Elizabeth was the (second) wife of Capt. N.B. Ingram (deceased), and died of yellow fever in 1878; and Caroline was the wife of Dr. S.C. Glover (sic), and died about 1880.
Major Majet received the rudiments of an education at home and later attended Grenada and Oxford and finished his education in the military institute at Frankfort, Ky., just before the war broke out.He then joined company E, Fifteenth Mississippi infantry as a private, but was afterwards made sergeant major, and with the exception of about six months on detached service in an artillery, he served in that command until the close of the war, fighting at Fishing Creek, Vicksburg, Port Hudson, Baton Rouge and was in the Georgia and Atlanta campaigns.He was then sent back to Corinth, Miss., and served for some time in the commissary department.He was then sent back to join General Johnston, whom he reached just prior to the surrender.
Returning to Mississippi, he followed farming, and in 1867 was married to Miss Louise Ingram, who was born in the house in which she is now residing in Grenada County, and who is the daughter of Capt. N.B. and Margaret (Williams) Ingram.Captain Ingram was married twice, his first wife being the mother of Mrs. Majet.He and first wife were born in South Carolina, but came to what is now Grenada County about 1837, and settled a number of miles east of Grenada, where he improved a good farm.He subsequently removed to Grenada and followed merchandising until his death in 1874.To Mr. and Mrs. Majet have been born eight children, two sons and three daughters now living.When first married, Mr. Majet lived about twelve years in Le Flore County, then in the neighborhood where his boyhood days were spent and recently in Grenada.He is one of the leading planters of the county, owning about three thousand acres and twenty-five hundred acres in the bottoms of Le Flore County, mostly the result of his own efforts but partly the result of inheritance.He is sparing no pains to educate his children and make him home pleasant.
Note:Caroline Lafayette Majet married in 1865 Dr. Charles Locke Glover, also called Dr. L.C. Glover and sometimes written S.C. (apparently when the L was written like an S).
Their only child was Charles L.L. Glover, born Aug. 6, 1874, whose biographical sketch also appears in Goodspeed's BIOGAPHICAL AND HISTORICAL MEMOIRS OF MISSISSIPPI (1891).His biography states that his father was Dr. Locke C. Glover who married Caroline L. Majet, lived in Memphis and Grenada and was the son of Lancaster Glover and Elizabeth (Locke).
In the 1870 census of Grenada Co., Caroline Glover is shown living with her mother Mrs. Sarah (Walters) Majet, widow. She is listed as "idiotic." They are two doors away from former slave Fannie Mayhew Ingram and her mother Sarah Mayhew.
In the 1870 census of Memphis, Shelby Co., TN., Dr. S.C. (L.C.) Glover is shown, living apart from his wife.The bio. sketch of Charles L.L. Glover states that his father did retire to Grenada and died there.
I can't find any of them in the 1880 census except for the former slaves.
Charles L.L. Glover (b. 1874) inherited the Majet home and lived there, single, in the 1900 census, two doors away from Fanny Ingram & Sarah Mayhew.Charles L.L. Glover married Kate Coffman Mayhew in 1906.
