The Medlock Family
By Antoinette Medlock Johnson (Mrs. William Collins Matthews)
John Williams Medlock is the only son who remained in Gwinnett County as late as 1847, when he moved to Atlanta. His father, Isham, took an active part in the early development of Gwinnett County until he went with his son, Mastin, to Cherokee County, Alabama, about 1840. There he is buried in Salem Church yard, beside his son, Mastin Medlock who married Mary Ann Johnson of DeKalb County, Ga. Lewis Henry Medlock married Marian McHenry Lansford of Oglethorpe County and moved to Washington County where he became an editor. He is buried in Mt. Pleasant Church yard, Emanuel County, Ga.
John Williams Medlock lived for many years in Gwinnett County. In 1822 he married Sarah Jemison Ware, daughter of Thomas Ware and Sarah Jemison who moved into Gwinnett from Greene County. Eleven of the thirteen children of John Williams Medlock were born in Gwinnett County. Two sons were born after they moved to Atlanta, both dying in infancy.
The John Williams Medlock plantation in Atlanta was on what later became Ponce de Leon Ave. and reached as far as the present site of Sears - Roebuck. Their old home was on what is now Boulevard at the intersection of St. Charles Ave. The family burying ground was near the corner of St. Charles. There those who died were buried, but when Atlanta began to make streets and building lots of the land, the graves were later moved to Decatur cemetery.
The famous Ponce de Leon springs was on the Medlock property, and it was very popular for friends to gather there on frequent occasions "to take the waters". Many would drive from Gwinnett to see their old neighbors and friends, and to enjoy the spring.
During the War Between the States all five of the sons of John Williams Medlock and four sons - in - law served in the Confederate Army. Thomas died as a result of the war. William Parks was wounded in both hands, the bullet remaining in his left hand until his death.
