Notes for JORDAN GAY:
Virginia Tuttle joined the Daughters of the War of 1812 on this ancestor.
Jordan Gay and family are found on the 1850 Coosa County, Al. census:
Gay, Jordan, age 65, b. NCFarmer 400
"Rebecca, wife, age 56, b. GA.
"John, son age 24, b. GA Farmer
"Lavica Ann,age 18, b. GA
"Augustus, age 15, b. GA
"Virgil, age 12, b. GA
No record could be found of the marriage between Jordan and Rebecca when she filed for a Bounty Land Grant after Jordan's death.Jordan had received a Bounty Land Grant earlier for his service in the War of 1812 and a law had been passed that allowed another Grant.Jordan had received 80.4 acres in Coosa County, Alabama in 1850 which was his reason to move to Alabama.With certified statements from friends Rebecca had the Coosa County Judge to issue a statement that they had known the couple before they married and that they were married as they said in Monticello, Jasper County, Ga.Rebecca's request to the Government was nevertheless denied.It is not known when or where Rebecca died.She is found on the 1860 Coosa census living with her grandson, Stewart Gay, age 21 (mentally deranged).Stewart was not listed on the 1850 cenus, so it can be assumed that he is a grandson. Your compiler has tried to piece together a group sheet with what she believes to be the children of Jordan and Rebecca in the absence of a "Will" or bible using just census sheets and marriage records.Rebecca and Jordan were found in Harris County, GA in 1830 and 1840 census.They were charter members of the Beech Springs Baptist Church constituted in 1832 in Harris County.Jordan enlisted in the War of 1812 in Jasper County, GA.He served in "2" Jenkins GA Volunteers as a Private.His Military Land Warrant was #12854-80-50 dated 1850, Montgomery, Ala. for Coosa County.

6.EUGENE AUGUSTUS6 BELL (MARINDA ORLEAN5 GAY, AUGUSTUS S.4, REBECCA3 RICHARDSON, ENOCH2, DANIEL1) was born July 03, 1883 in Chambers County, Al., and died November 03, 1951 in Lee County, Ala..He married NANCY ANNIE ENNIS January 08, 1905 in LeeCounty, Ala., daughter of WILLIAM ENNIS and MARGARET WELDON.She was born October 09, 1888 in Chambers County, Al., and died January 09, 1987 in Mobile, Ala..
Notes for EUGENE AUGUSTUS BELL:
Both Eugene and wife Nancy (known as Gene and Nan). are buried in Rosemere Cemetery in Opelika, Ala.Inthe earliest years ofhis marriage, Gene worked as a machinistfor the Central of Georgia Railroad.Unlike his brother Jesse, he didnot stick with this profession.Around 1920 he, with the approval of Nan, decided to become a farmer.At first they raised cows,hogs, chickens, vegetables, and fruit for themselves, and to sell.In the 30's they became pioneers in mass producing turkeys for the market.They often raised and dressed as many as 4 to 5,000 turkeys in a single year.Needless to say, thewhole family was involved in the business of dressing and marketing the turkeys.They didnot get rich but made a pretty fair living and all managed to dress and eat well.They quit raising turkeys after the children all married and left home.It was just too much for two people to handleandthey were not getting any younger.They did notdie and leave their children financially well off, but instead left a legacy of love andfamily values.Their children were taught to work, be honest and respect themselves and others.Gene died of aheart attack at the age of68. He was found died at his barn at age 68.Nan lived to be 98.She kept house for herself and her nephew Johnny Ennis who she had raised from age 3 months as her own.She raised her brother WillEnnis's son, Johnny.Johnny's mother died as the result of giving birth to twins.Elizabeth Woods Ennis, Johnny's mother gave birth to him and his twin sister while living in the country on a farm about five miles from her doctor in Lee County, Al.Her doctor did attend her during the birth process but left and returned to his home.It is a known fact that she hemoraged to death.Her doctor was summoned back but when he arrived 12 hours later she was dead. Her death certificate read "cardiac failure".Elizabeth's death was devastating to all who knew her.She was a lovely, fine lady who was loved by all who knew her.
The twins that Elizabeth gave birth to were not identical.One was a boy and one a girl.The baby girl
got pneumonia and died when two months old.Nan asked her brother to allow her to take Johnny.At the time of his sister's death, he also was sick.Of course, Will gladly accepted Nan's offer.What was a poor man to do who was left with five little children to raise ranging in ages from birth to 11 years of age?Gene and Nan loved Johnny as their own.Theirchildren who were all grown at that time loved "baby Johnny"also.He was a part of the family in every sense of the word.Johnny kept in touch with his real siblings and his father but these meetings were often infrequent.His father eventually married again.To Johnny, Gene and Nan were "Papa" and "Mama".He finished high school and went into the
Army for a few years before returning home to a job and trade school.He lived with Nan for many years
before he married (Gene had died when Johnny was fourteen).
Nan and Gene were acouple who arose at daybreak and before 9 a. m. the house was clean and all beds made. They were both quick, energetic, and well organized.They could not stand by and watch
suffering and hunger without doing something to help.They often fed beggars who passed their way.
Their children also were extremely clean and hard working.They were taught to work as children by
Nan and Gene.They neither one, however, could stand laziness, or as they would put it, "just plain
Through the years, Nan and Gene took in three more nephews;fed, clothed, and sent them to school
for about 3 years.Colored labor was hired on the farm, both male and female, but none worked any
harder than the Bells themselves.Most Bells, it is said have musical talent but Gene's brother, Charles Paul Bell, who was a professional musician seems to have gotten Gene's share of the talent, or perhaps they just all worked too much to take time to learn an instrument.They all seemed to enjoy their work or tasks at hand.They cheerfully went about their work and took pride in working and serving God.
While Gene was alive, the family attended the Methodist Church.Later Nan attended whatever church
her children were attending that she was living with.They enjoyed entertaining as their children were
growing up and would hold Saturday night dances in their home.They arranged a few hay rides and
possum hunts and swam in a nearby creek.There were "candy pulls" (taffy) and cookie baking times,
and good vegetables were enjoyed year round, even if taken from last summer's canning; plenty of
good corn bread, smoked country ham and biscuits were eaten.Fruit trees were planted and harvested, hogs and cattle were killed in season, as were chickens and turkeys.Wild plums and blackberries were picked and jellies, jams, and cobblers made.No one ever went hungry but the big
meal usually was served at lunch time, in order to feed the hired helpers well.Often the night meal
was leftovers and very little cooking was done on Sunday unless of course the Preacher was coming to
Nan made many of her children's clothes as they were growing up, then in her golden years she took
up crocheting.Nan crocheted 15 afghans after the age of 80.Her mind stayed good untilthe last year of her life.She lived with her oldest daughter Maggie and her family for about 12 years in the country at Ridgegrove (Lee County). She lived with her son Robert Bell and his wife in Anniston, Al. for about two years, and spent about three years with her son Willie and his wife in Opelika.The last year of her lifewas spent with her youngest daughter, Suzie Corrine Prewitt in Mobile, Ala.Nan was dearly loved by
all her family.This was a great couple! . More About EUGENE AUGUSTUS BELL:
