BIOGRAPHY: "Fletcher Moreland Stamps served in the 19th Georgia Infantryand had an extraordinary series of experiences. The 19th fought in Virginia; was transferred for service in Florida; and finally surrendered in May, 1865 in Greensboro, North Carolina. FletcherMoreland served most of that period as a medic."He told the story of once being on the battlefield bending over a wounded comrade. He looked up after hearing the sound of a cannon and saw a cannon ball flying through the air towards him. He did not move and it passed quite close to his body. The wind from the cannon pickedhim up and threw him 20 feet. On another occasion, in the midst of heavyfighting, he was so intent on firing his rifle and reloading it that he was not aware that every other member of his contingent had retreated from the battlefront. He claims he heard the voice of God telling him to"run". He was startled, looked up and realized that he was hundreds of yards from the nearest Confederate line and that the battle had swept behind him leaving him totally exposed and alone. Needless to say, he caught up with his comrades in good order. "Early in the War he had been captured by Union Forces but was traded with other Confederate soldiers in early 1862. The War was a traumatic experience for all involved, and the period in the summer of 1864 when Atlanta and Georgia were threatened was particularly difficult for great grandfather. Whenhe returned after the War, his home had been destroyed and all was laidwaste. His struggle for survival in the Winter of 1865 was one his children would always remember from his stories."After the War, many of his friends and neighbors honored him by calling him "Doc" because of his medical experience during the conflict. Many published accounts of Confederate Veterans confuse Flether Moreland Stamps with his cousin, F.M. Stamps. F.M. Stamps was killed in 1862 and is buried in Atlanta's Oakland Cemetery. The records confusing F.M.Stamps with Fletcher Moreland Stamps extend to those kept in the Georgia Archives. One day I hope to get that straight. Fletcher Moreland Stamps is buried at Salem Baptist Church near Bowden, Georgia. The church is onlands donated by him and he was one of three funders of the church following the War between the States. Several other Stamps are buried around the large monument identifying the family plot . The above biography was written by Thomas Paty Stamps of Atlanta, Georgia.

Mary Pearl Brown Price (Mrs. Eugene Miller Price, deceased, Atlanta) wrote in her book, "The Annals of Our Kin" (1940), Atlanta Public Library. ( She also included the Moseleys and Spivey families and others.) Also from "The Stamps Family" by Will Stamps:
Three brothers of Scotch-Irish descent came to this county in the early days, landing in Nova Scotia. Tradition says they invented the method of stamping goods from the colonies for taxes, so the King appointed them official stampers and they were called Stampers, and hence the name.
Moses Stamps Sr., soldier of 1812, is the first of whom we have record. His mother was (Unknown) Witt. He married Ann Eason, whose mother was a Rice, presumably in the Carolinas. Moses Stamps Sr. came to Jackson County in 1795, bringing his young wife and one or two small children. He bought several tracts of land in the fertile valleys of the Oconee River and Buffalo Creek, where he conducted large farms and also was locksmith and blacksmith. He drew land in Oglethorpe County in 1804 but never lived there, at least we have no record of his living there. In 1818 he sold all his lands in Jackson County to George Headen, moving to the neighboring county of Gwinnett, then to Clarke, back to Jackson, then to Fayette County, and finally to Coweta County. He died in the fall of 1829. (Georgia Men, Vol. I, page 420). He was Captain of the 243 District Company in the War of 1812 (Georgia Roster of War 1812, State Capitol).
It is told in the family to this day that his wife, Ann Eason, carded, spun and wove the material for her wedding dress, and it was so sheer that she could draw a width of it through her wedding ring. Ann Eason Stamps was a doctor of note, receiving calls all over the countryside, traveling on horseback to her patients.
They lived a long and happy life together, rearing their children up in the way they should go, both dying about 1847. Ann died suddenly at a granddaughter's wedding. One son, Eason, and one daughter, Ann, lived to be over 100 years old. Eason was also a soldier of the War of 1812 and he was Captain of a company in the Indian War of 1836 (Georgia Men, Vol. I, page 420).
There were seven children: (1) Eason, b. June 29, 1794, d. 1897, age 103, m. Polly Watts, Oct. 17, 1817; (2) James, b. 1795, m. Elizabeth Freeman; (3) John, b. 1801, m. (1) Unknown, m. (2) Naomi Unknown; (4) Moses Witt, b. April 9, 1803, d. April 18, 1853, m. Sarah Freeman, Dec. 5, 1826, sister of Elizabeth; (5) Sarah, m. Gilbert Gay,(Sarah born b. Nov. 25, 1809;)(6) Mary, m. Robert Brooks; (7) Ann, lived 105 years, m. James Handley.
Moses Witt Stamps was born April 9, 1803, on his father's plantation in Jackson County, where he spent his boyhood, then going to Coweta County when his family moved there.
In those pioneer days when his country was so sparsely settled, the young men rode many miles on horseback to court the girls of their choice. Moses Witt Stamps made the long trip from Coweta County back to Jackson County to court beautiful auburn-haired Sara Freeman, whom he married December 5, 1826, taking her to his home in Coweta County. They lived in that part of Coweta County which was taken off to form Campbell County, where he was a Justice of the Peace in 1834 and for some years after, moving back to Coweta County later.
He was a planter of some means, but his health failed in the prime of life and his wife, Sarah, managed the large plantation. Therefore, at his death, April 18, 1853, she was able to carry on the work very profitably. She married Jacob Redwine a few years later and, according to Moses' will, the property was divided among his children. Moses Stamps is buried in a Primitive Baptist churchyard near Newnan where his wife, Sarah, was laid by his side at her death, Oct. 14, 1881. The church is now gone and the graves are in a field.
Moses and Sarah had nine children: Mary Ann Amanda, Nancy Elizabeth Jane, Eliza Freeman, Sarah Caroline, Georgia Ann Flora, Charity Adeline, Christopher Columbus, Martha Frances, and William Thomas.
