Their daughter, Sallie Herbert Cook, marriedJohn Dudley Reese, Sr., who was the eldest child of Dr. CharlesEdwin Reese and Sarah Hammond Dudley. Elizabe~h Hamptonwas my great, great, great grandmother.My information on the Hampton family is taken from the book,"The Venturers: The Hampton, Harrison, and Earle Families ofVirginia, South Carolina, and Texas", by Virginia G. Meynard.This book was published by the Southern Historical Press in 1981and is a "landmark" tYpe book -a truly remarkable work.

These quotes cannot be used by anyoneelse without her permission.Virginia Gurley Meynard, a descendant of my GenerationSeven Ancestor, Anthony Hampton, is my fifth cousin once-removed."The English Ancestry""The Hampton family, one of the oldest in England, is Saxon inorigin. The first record of the family is at Wolverhampton, a townin Staffordshire about 13 miles northwest of Birmingham. Theseat of the Hampton family, the ancient manor of Tunstall, waslocated there before the IOth century, according to Shaw's"History and Antiquaries of Staffordshire, England.""The village of Wolverhampton originally was called Hampton.It grew up around the church of St. Mary founded in 996 A.D. byWolfruna, the wife of Athelen, Duke of Northampton, during the'eign of King Ethelred. Wolfruna endowed the church withextensive lands, and the town's name was changed toU~olverhampton."" The Hampton family took its name from the town whenPeople began to use surnames in thc 12th century.... The Manor ofTunstall was in the family until it was sold in 1562. During thecenturies, y,unger mcmbers of the Hampton family moved toothcr counties in England. The ancestor of William Hampton of231Virginia, the founder of the American branch, had moved toTwickenham Parish, County Middlesex, now a suburb of London,by the turn of the 16th century, according to research conductedin 1981 by Peter Wilson Coldham, the eminent British genealogist.The Twickenham Parish Register shows that William was baptizedon 28 May 1592 as the eldest son of Lawrence Hampton, Sr. andhis second wife, name not given. Laurence, Sr. had two children,John and Cassandra, by his first wife, and five more followingWilliam: Richard, Ann, who married Henry Rande; Elizabeth,Laurence, Jr., who married Miss Garrett, and Philadelphia.""On 9 Nov. 1627, the will of Laurence Hampton, Jr. merchant-tailor, was probated in London. He left 20 pounds to his sister,Philadelphia Hampton, and 10 pounds to his brother, WilliamHampton, "when he returns from Virginia, but if he dies abroad,the money to go to sister Philadelphia." He mentioned his father-in-law, Thomas Garrett, his brother-in-law, Henry Rand, andSister Anne Rand. He left his estate, including houses, lands andappurtenances at Twickenham Parish, Middlesex, to his wife. Thewill proves that the William Hampton who was born inTwickenham Parish is the same William Hampton who immigratedto Virginia."

His wife, Joane, and children William,Jr., Grace, and Elizabeth arrived on the "Abigail" in the spring of1621. Joane was 25 at that time, so her birth year would be ca.1596, in England. In April, 1623, a second son, Thomas, was bornin Virginia.Nere resumes Hamlpton material from "The Venturers"."The 1625 census "record of "William Hampton, His Muster"shows that he lived beyond the Hampton river in Elilabeth City233County with Joane Hampton and John Arundell as members ofthe household. Listed as provisions on hand were five barrels ofcorn and 200 ct. of fish. He had eight pieces of arms, one barrelof powder, 20 pounds of lead, and one house." (p. 8)"Laurence Hampton died in England in 1627.... AfterLaurence's death William apparently gave up the wool trade andbegan to develop plantations.... On Dec. 10, 1627 six patents wereissued on a lease basis for tracts at Buck Roe, the LondonCompany's old vineyards. [Among the patentees was) "WilliamHampton, Planter." The site is identified today by a historicalmarker next to a resort motel at Buck Roe beach.""Hampton leased 50 acres between the vignerons and Gov. iWest's land and ....planted tobacco, paying the government 50pounds of his yield each year as rent.... Hampton's cropsflourished, and in 1632 he took over the 50 acres formerly leasedby Gov. West. Two years later he leased an additional 100 acres onHarris Creek for a hundred years." (p.8)"In 1640 William Hampton, then 48, left Buck Roe and obtainedhis first outright grant when he patented 550 acres betweenNutmeg Quarter and the Poquoson Forest on the York River sideof Elizabeth City County. It was at that time that he used hisheadrights for transporting his family and seven indenturedservants to Virginia. The Poquoson plantation was located at thehead of the Back River near the seats of William Armistead,Augustine Warner, and Thomas Todd." (p.10)"On March 25, 1651, William Hampton, then 59, was granted700 acres on the east side of the Eastermost River below PuddingSwamp (Put-in-Creek), near the present town of Mathews, Va. Toobtain the patent he transported 14 persons, including his sister,Philadelphia Hampton. The grant, signed by Gov. Sir WilliamBerkley, was recorded at Jamestown in Patent Book No. 2, andWilliam carefully kept the original to prove his ownership of theland ....Hampton planted a tobacco crop ....built a large house,and named the plantation Hampfield....[His] life at Hampfield wasshort.

Thomas Hampton, II was most unusual. Heserved Wilmingtom Parish in James City County for almost 50years.... one of the longest tenures of any colonial minister in oneparish. He was a highly educated man, a greatly respectedclergyman, and the owner of several great Tidewater plantations,yet very little is known about him. There is no public record ofhim until 1653 when he was 30 years old." (p. 14)"....He was 13 years old in 1636 when his father's kinsman, theRev. Thomas Hampton, I, arrived in the colony and became hismentor. Among the Parishes served by Rev. Hampton wereNansemond in Upper Norfolk, where he established a 1,000-acreplantation, and James City where he became the Rector in 1639...Probably no one had greater influence on young Thomas thanRev. Hampton. It is said that he sent young Thomas to England tostudy for the ministry, and as he had no children of his own, healso made him his heir....Rev. Thomas Hampton I, died 5 Jan.1648....left his Nansemond plantation to young Thomas, then 25,who was referred to about this time as a "wealthy, educated youngman." Thomas also took over as rector of York-Hampton Parish,married, ....and settled at the glebe house ....A son, John, was bornin 1650; a daughter Mary, ca. 1652; and a second son, Thomas, Jr.,ca.1654."235....Ministers' salaries, paid in tobacco, were quite small inColonial Virginia, and it must have been revenues from hisHampfield and Nansemond plantations thal enabled Rev. ThomasHamplon, II to pay the passages of indentured servants and gainthe necessary headrights to expand his land holdings.... In 1643 hepatented 550 acres on Tyascun Branch of Warrany Creek,transporting 11 persons to secure the tract. He sent an overseerand indentured servants to clear the land and establish aplantation." (pp. 14-17)"....By 1658 the plantation was a working, paying enterprise.When (Rev. Hampton was] asked to become rector of WilmingtonParish, he accepted and moved from York-Hampton to Tyascun.He immediately addcd 550 adjacent acres, ~ransporting II more 1people to secure the grant. His 1,100 acre plantation was then oneof the largest in the area." (p. 18)"When Rev. Hamplon's sons reached manhood, they leftTyascun and took over the business of their father's otherplantations. Thomas Jr. went to Nansemond, and John wenl toHampfield to learn planting from his uncle, William Hampton, Jr.In 1670, Rev. Hampton's daughter, Mary, 18, marricd John (?)Duke, and her father deeded her 400 acres of the Tyascunplantation as her dowry. Three years later Duke added another622 acres on Tyascun Swamp next to Mr. Joseph Wadd. He thenowned over a thousand acres, and when he died soon afterwards,he left Mary a wealthy young widow." (p. 20)"In 1677 Rev. Hampton's son, Capt. John, 27, then living atHampfield, married Mary Mann, niece of John Mann, Gent., ofGloucester. Rev. Hampton gave then his half of Hampfield as awedding present, and his first grandchild, Thomas Hampton, IV,was born there in 1679.""Sometime before 1678 Wallingford Parish was left without aminister, and Rev. Hampton, then 55, took over its duties inaddition to those in Wilmington.... He still was serving Wallingfordtwo years later when a list of the 27 ministers in Virginia wascompiled, showing Rev. Thomas Hampton as rector of twoparishes in James City County."Rev. Hampton made a trip to Gjoucester County on 18 June1683 to baptize his second grandson, John Hampton, Jr., atHampfield. He made another special visit to Hampfield five yearslater to celebrate his birthday. One of his most treasured gifts wasa pocket Bible inscribed and presented to him by "his affectionateson John Hampton on his sixty-fifth birthday, 16th April 1688"Thereafter Rev.Hampton carried this Bible with him to churcheach Sunday, his text carefully marked with the date beside it·His last entry, and supposcdly final sermon, was on 12 (>ct. 1690·He probably died soon after, but his place of hurial and236grave~lone have not been I`ound. It is bclieved that he lefr IhcrJansemond plantation to Thomas Jr. and the rest of Tyascun tobis daughter Mary." (p. 22)~~~.Sometime before Rev. Thomas Hampton II's death, Mrs.Mary (Hampton) Duke remarried, for on 20 April 1682, sherepatented the Tyascun land her fathcr had given her as Mrs.Mary Wade. She is said to be the anccstor of Hampton Wade,Gent, of Halifax County, Va., in whose home the Halifaxgovernment was formed in 1752."Thomas Hampton, Jr. continued to live in Nansemond, wherehe was surrounded by a large Ouaker population. In 1689, at age35, he married Elizabeth Bridle, daughter of Francis and MaryBridle, whose plantation was just across the border in Isle ofWight County. Within a year a daughter, Mary, was born, and on3 Feb. 1690, Francis and Mary Bridle deeded one-half of theirplan~ation to Thomas and Elizabeth Hampton. It was to pass toMarV Hampton after their deaths.....The Bridles were a devout Uuaker family and members ofthe Chucka~uck meeting. Sometime after his marriage, ThomasHamp~on, Jr. became a Quaker and joined the Meeting.... [He andElizabeth] had fi~~e more children and became the ancestors of theIsle of Wight and some of the Frederick County, Va.

His uncle WilliamHampton was already living there. "John joined the CJloucesterCounty Militia, as was required by law, and rose to the rank ofCaptain." (p.27) "In 1675 he made an extended trip to England.....After his return he bought a 198-acre tract adjoining Hampfieldfrom his neighbor, Richard Cary, and became a planter in his ownright." (p. 28)In June, 1677, he married Mary Mann. Her uncle, John Mann,gave her "157 acres adjoining Hampfield, and Rev. Hampton gaveJohn his half of Hampfield. With Mr. Mann's gift of 157 acres, theCary tract of 196 acres, and his father's 350 acres, John had a 703acre plantation adjoining his uncle William."

His son, John Hampton of Hamptonville,inherited Hampfield in 1740 and sold it to Thomas Hayes of(;louccster in 1743. Therc was no record of John Hampton'sowncrship of Hampfield in the Gloucester courthouse at thattime, and Hayes insisted on proof with a clear title beforepurchase. On September 7, 1743, John wrote a letter to Hayesfrom Hamptonvillc enumerating the acquisition and ownership ofthe three tracts that made up Hampfield: (1) one-half of theoriginal grant to William Hampton through legacies to Rev.Thomas, Capt. John, Thomas, and himself; (2) Capt. John'spurchase of the Cary tract; (3) the gift of John Mann's tract toCapt. John Hampton. John then journeyed to cloucester and madea new deed that was witnessed by John Hunley, Martha Finch,and Richard Hampton.

Other denominations had formedchurches (the Baptists and Presbyterians were prevalent), but theyhad to pay taxes to the state church. In 1755, Watchovia, the landof the Moravians, was detached as Dobbs Parish, which rea6~edout to include Town Fork. The Moravians thereafter elected thevestry and church wardens of the parish, whose duties were tocollect taxes and provide for the poor who passed through theirvillage. Moravian Ministers preached in German, but theyobtained an English-speaking minister who was charged with thespiritual welfare of the English in Dobbs Parish. He also read theChurch of England Liturgy at the Moravian Meeting Hall atBethabara four times a year.

Glenn's treaty with theIndians. The most lucrative trade in the Carolinas was indeerskins, and the source was in the Cherokee Nation. TheHamptons' three eldest sons, John, 23, Edward, 20, and Preston,18, became Indian traders, while the younger boys, Henry, 16,Wade, 15, and Richard, 13, completed their educations.... All ofthe Hampton boys were well educated.""Capt. Hampton was appointed overseer of roads in 1769 andwas elected foreman of the Rowan Grand Jury. The Courthousewas 40 miles south at Salisbury, a long horseback ride for TownFork men, and so that they could have their own seat of countygovernment, Surry County was formed from the northern portionof Rowan in 1770."(pp.64-65)[Anthony Hampton was among thel "commissioners for Surryappointed to run the dividing line between the two counties andchoose a site for a courthouse. After the founding of the newcounty, Anthony Hampton's youngest brother, Thomas Hampton,moved there from Pittsylvania Co., Va. with his son, HenryHampton, and bought a 646-acre plantation near the Rockinghamborder.

In Granville County theystopped to visit James' widowed mother and her uncle, SamuelHenderson. It was there that Anthony Hampton and SamuelHenderson signed the marriage bond of James Harrison andElizabeth Hampton. The contract was witnessed by her brotherWade." (pp. 66-67)"The New Bern Assembly was opened by the passing of an actannexing the northern part of Rowan County (present Forsyth) toSurry. Among the commissioners appointed to run the line wereAnthony Hampton and Robert Lanier. The Assembly had anangry confrontation with Gov. Martin over his refusal to appointSupreme Court Justices. Then the representatives made the firstovert act in North Carolina leading to revolution: they appointeda committee to set up communications with Virginia and the othercolonies and passed a resolution stating they were ready topreserve and defend their rights. This patriotic act was AnthonY248Hampton's iast public service in North Carolina. Before Ihe nextAssembly met, he had left the state." (p. 67)From North Carolina to South Carolina"By 1773 the Hampton brothers' trading ventures were mostsuccessful. Their wagons reached down into the Province of SouthCarolina and into the Lower Towns of the Cherokee Nation on itswestern border. To be nearer their source of deerskins, as well asrhe markets at Charles Town, they decided to move to the SouthCarolina frontier. Capt.and Mrs.Hampton, Elizabeth and JamesHarrison, planned to accompany them, and so on 10 July, 1773,Elizabeth Hampton and James Harrison were married in SurryCounty.""....Anthony and Elizabeth (Preston) Hampton sold their TownFork plantation to Gray Bynum, and taking their grandson, JohnBynum, with them, joined their sons' caravan. Sometime beforethe move, Preston Hampton, 26, married Elizabeth (Betty)Armstrong (?)....Their move took them to thc prescnt SpartanburgCounty, then a part of Ninety Six District.""They followed the South Tyger River almost to the border ofthe Cherokee Nation (present Spartanburg-Greenville border)....It was there, about a mile from the Indian boundary, that Capt.Hampton built his home. It was located on the north side of theriver beside a small stream that was given the name Hampton'sCreek. The Harrisons lived nearby, and Preston and Betty builttheir house on a hill nearer the border at Hampton Spring."A new group of Irish immigrants [in the area] were new atfarming and did not know how to break flax, so AnthonyHampton, then 60 years old, moved quietly among his neighbors,teaching them this art, and his son Wade opened a school for theirchildren. Preston Hampton established his trading headquartersin the Cherokee nation, where he had many friends among thetribal chiefs, while Edward moved back and forth to markets atCharles Town on the coast. Edward also did some surveying forgentlemen at the Congarees, a trading post below the confluenceof the Broad and Saluda Rivers near present Columbia. In thenext year he met and married the daughter of a well-to-doplanter, George Dawkins, Sr., of Broad River. John Hamptonmarried Nancy Jackson and settled down as a planter.""....After shots were fired at Lexington and Concord in April1775, rumors abounded in South Carolina that the British securedthe alliance of the Cherokees, and lndian attacks on the frontiersettlements were imminent. The people of Spartan District,fcaring for their safety, sent Edward and Preston Hampton intothc Cherokee Nation in May 1775 to gain the alliance of the249Indians, but Alexander Cameron, the deputy British Indian agent,had been in the nation for some weeks and already had cementedthe old Cherokee-British friendship.... [The result was thatEdward and Preston were captured and held as prisoners.Twenty-six days after their capture they escaped and warned thesettlers at Spartanburg of impending Indian attack, which,however, did not take place.]" (pp. 67-70)"The Massacre""The English Parliament finally declared the AmericanColonies in a state of rebellion in February 1776. Britishnewspapers reported that troops were gathered in the ports ofsouthern England ready to sail and repeated rumors that CharlesTown was their objective. South Carolinians turned the SecondProvincial Congress into the First General Assembly, set up anindependent government, adopted a state constitution, and calledfor a statewide election of delegates to a Second GeneralAssembly, which met at Charles Town in April 1776.""The British fleet arrived at Charles Town on 28 June 1776 andopened fire. It was repulsed by cannonades from the fort held bythe South Carolina militia. Simultaneously, according to theBritish plan, Cameron's Cherokees and bands of Tories sweptthrough the river valleys on the frontier. Some historians say thatCameron himself led the foray. First, they murdered the Hitefamily on the Enoree River. Then they rode on to the SouthTyger.""It was early morning of 30 June 1776 when the Cherokees andTories arrived at the Hampton house. Elizabeth (Hampton)Harrison was visiting her parents while her husband was awayrecruiting militia. Of her brothers, only Preston was there. Hehad stopped to talk with his father before going into the CherokeeNation with his wagonload of goods. His wife and two childrenremained at their home up the hill. Elizabeth Harrison left herinfant son in the care of her mother and went to visit the Sadlerfamily on the next plantation.""There are many published versions of events leading to thefamous Hampton massacre, but they do not agree in detail.Probably the most accurate is the eyewitness account of JohnBynum, as related by J.B.O. Landrum in Colonial and Revolu_tionarv Historv of UDDer South Carolina. When the Indiansappeared at the Hampton house, Preston saw a friendly chief inthe party and went outside to greet him. His father followed himinto the yard. According to Landrum, "Old Mr. Hampton gave thechief a cordial welcome and handclasp, but almost immediatelyPreston was shot down by a Tory, and the hand Anthony had held250sent a tomahawk through his skull." Mrs. Hampton appeared anwas killed in like manner. The Indians entered the house, dransome brandy, and pillaged the family wardrobes.""Hearing the war whoops, Elizabeth Harrison and Mrs. Sadcrept across the canebrake to investigate. Coming in sight ofhouse, they saw the mutilated bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Hamptand Preston in the yard. The Indians, drunk on the brandy, wedressed in the Hamptons' fine clothes and were amusinthemselves by cutting open a feather bed and chasing the contenover the ground. As the terrified women watched, a Cherokebrave carried Elizabeth's infant into the yard and holding him bthe feet, dashed his brains out against a tree. Mrs. Sadler claspeher hand over Elizabeth's mouth to stifle her scream and pullher back through the canebrake to a place where their horses wetethered. Mounting bareback, they galloped to Wood's Fort forhelp.""A search party was sent out, but by the time they reached theHampton place the Indians had burned the house and departedtaking Preston's wagons and the Hamptons' nine- year-olgrandson, John Bynum, with them. The men hastily buriedbodies of Anthony, Elizabeth, Preston, and the Harrison baby ione shallow grave, and then started in pursuit of the Indians, bthey were too late. The marauders had disappeared over thmountains into Cherokee country. It is said that the raiding partstopped at Preston's home some distance away and murdered hitwo children. His wife fled through the swamp and was founseveral days later wandering through the woods, her clothing torto rags. She was so frightened that her mind never fully recoverefrom the ordeal. Another band of Cherokees galloped north anbefore their raids were over had murdered members of tHannon family in the vicinity of Earle's Fort.""The Hite, Hampton, and Hannon massacres meant war witthe Indians. Col. Andrew Williamson, who headed the Ninety SiWhig militia, and Anthony's old friend, Col. Griffith Rutherforof North Carolina, led their troops over the mountains into thCherokee Nation. Joining Williamson were all five of thHampton sons, John, Edward, Henry, Wade, and Richard. Inseries of bloody conflicts, they defeated the Indians and burneall their villages and crops in the valleys. The Cherokees sued fpeace and in the treaty of 1777 returned all captives, includinJohn Bynum. They also ceded to South Carolina the territorypresent Greenville, Pickens, and Oconee counties.""In the Revolutionary War that followed, each of the Hamptoboys served with distinction in the State Troops on thContinental Line, and James Harrison fought with thelmilitia. Col. Edward Hampton was the only one not to surviv251He was murdered by Tories in 1780.""After the war, the Hampton brothers and James Harrisonbecame the elected leaders of their communities, all serving in theSouth Carolina Legislature and becoming the first justices oftheir counties. John Hampton settled on Broad River, whiieHenry Hampton lived in Fairfield county for a few years andthen moved to Georgia and Mississippi. Wade Hamptonestablished a plantation on the Congaree and founded a dynastythat was carried on for three generations. Richard Hamptonoperated the Hampton store at Granby (the Congarees) until hisdeath in a sawmill accident in 1792. James and Elizabeth(Hampton) Harrison moved to Greenville County and establishedtheir own dynasty on the site of the Battle of the Canebrake.Their descendants were among the pioneers who founded theStates of Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas.""Capt. Anthony Hampton's homestead in the South TygerValley passed out of the family. In 1827, over 50 years after theHampton massacre, Roddy Smith settled on the land. He wasvisited by a Hampton descendant who showed Smith the spotwhere the graves were located and asked him not to clear or plantthe area. Smith agreed and left the graves untouched.""In 1897, over 120 years after the massacre, a group of SouthCarolina historians visited the site and opened the graves.Landrum says that they verified the hasty first burial andreburied the bones. They cleared the ground, placed head and footstones over the graves, and covered the mound with white sand.At that time a dirt road gave access to the cemetery, which wassurrounded by a grove of huge oak trees. In later years the DARplaced a historical marker on the spot, but when the dirt road wasclosed, the marker was moved to the South Tyger River bridge onHighway 29, a few miles East of Greer, S.C. The graves are stillthere today, undisturbed." (pp.71-74)Generation EinhtChildren of Anthony Hampton and Elizabeth (Betsy) Preston:1.

It is saidthat he served in the French and Indian War in 1763 in Capt.Robert Wade's company of militia from Halifax Co., Va., wherethe Hampton family supposedly resided from 1748-1753. Johnmoved to Surry Co., N.C. with his parents in 1753 and to Ninety-Six District (Spartanburg Co.) S.C. in 1774. He was in the tradingbusiness with his brothers and was at Granby and the Congarees.He married, first, ca. 7775, Ann (Nancy) Jackson, who may havebeen the daughter of Philip and Elizabeth Jackson of theCongarees. They named their first daughter Elizabeth, and theHampton brothers visited "at Jackson's" many times during theRevolution." [ NOTE: IT IS FROM THIS MARRIACrE. ANDTHEIR DAUGHTER ELIZABETH, THAT WE DESCEND."After the massacre of his parents in 1776, John served in theCherokee campaign and then settled down as a planter. From1776-1778 h,,,,, representative in the Second General Assem-bly of the South Carolina House, but the records do not designatethe place of his residence. In the Third General Assembly (Aug.Sept., 1779) he represented Savannah and Edisto (Orangeburg).His first service in the Revolution was in the regiment ofPhilemon Waters. (See John Hampton's audited account #3285 inthe South Carolina Archives). Waters represented Orangeburg inthe ~eneral Assembly 1776-1778. When a new regiment of ligh~dragoons was raised by the Assembly in 1779 to serve on theCo"tinental Line, John accepted a commission as Captain under~aj. Hezekiah Maham and Col. Daniel Horry. (Sec the SouthL 253Carolina Gazette, Feb. 24, 1779). He rose to the rank of Major,serving until he was captured in 1780 and was forced to take theoath of allegiance. He later rejoined the forces and served in1781-1782.""John Hampton furnished many supplies to the Whig Militiaand was still collecting on indents in 1787. There is an interestingletter in his AA file, written from Dutch Fork in 1787 and signedby John, explaining that an indent delivered to him from theTreasurer was "the property of another person of my name," towhom he had given it. This probably was a distant cousin, JohnHampton (1761-1837), who married Joyce Malone and was then aneighbor living in Newberry Co.""Sometime during the revolution Nancy Jackson died, leavingtwo young children, John Hampton, Jr., and Elizabeth Hampton.In 1782 Major Hampton and his brothers Henry, Richard, andWade bought 900 acres in Fairfield Co., near Winnsboro. MajorHampton, his children, and his nephew, John Bynum, residedthere with Henry and his family. Also living with Henry wastheir orphaned Niece, Mary Ellen Hampton, daughter of Edward.Near them resided their Uncle and Aunt, Col William andRosamond Hampton Winn. In 1782, as his second wife, MajorHampton, at age 39, married their daughter, his 18-year-oid firstcousin, Margaret Winn.""Major Hampton, both planter and trader, speculated in landafter the Revolution, buying and selling plantations confiscatedfrom Tories and obtaining state lands through grants. He ownedland adjacent to Wade and Richard's tract at Granby, acquired hisfather's old homestead site in Spartanburg Co., was granted 4,000acres in Ninety Six District, and bought a confiscated estate atStony Point in Barnwell Co. where he operated a ferry across theSavannah River. He was an educated, highly respected man, andwherever he resided, he was elected by his neighbors to representthem in the state legislature.""In 1785 he and Margaret settled on a plantation on BroadRiver, about 30 miles west of Columbia, which they called MountAiry. It was on the Lexington-Newberry border and alternatelylay in each as the boundary was changed. Two years earlier MajorHampton and Col. Adam Summer were high bidders on theconfiscated estate of Benjamin Gregory, which was adjacent tothe confiscated plantation of another Tory, the late GeorgeDawkins, grandfather of Mary Ellen Hampton."INOTE: SEE CHAPTER SIX.

A later chronicler said that "Maj. Hampton's educationwas respectable, which as long as he lived he continued to add toand improve. He wrote well; he composed with facility andmarked correctness. His conversation was light, beautiful,instructive. Wit was the distinguishing characteristic of his mind,and his flashes of merriment were a source of delight to hisfriends. The Major was highly respected for both his wit and hisopinions. He was of middle size, symmetrically proportioned, andextremely handsome."(See Historical Collections of the JosephHabersham Chapter, DAR, Vol. 3, p.22).""John Sims was named administrator of Major Hampton'sestate, and a suit in court listed his heirs as his widow, Margaret,daughter Elizabeth, wife of Thomas S.Herbert; daughter Ann,wife of John Sims, and Anthony W. Hampton. His eldest son, JohnHampton, Jr.,apparently predeceased him.""In 1818 the Herberts moved to Butler Co., Al., where theyjoined John and Mary Ellen Hampton Cook. The children of bothcouples became leading citizens of that state and several are listedin the Dictionarv of Alabama Biographv.

The Pharr FamilyOur connection with the Pharr Family begins with my mother,Mary Scotland Pharr, who married John Dudley Reese, Jr.My source for most of the early information I am including isthe book by Henry Newton Pharr of New Orleans, La. (Copyrightdate, 1955; printed by Edwards Brothers, Inc., Ann Arbor,Michigan) entitled, "Pharrs and Farrs with other descendantsfrom Five Scotch-Irish Pioneers in America."It is believed that the Pharr family came to America (Pennsyl-vania) from Antrim County, Ulster, Northern Ireland. The namehas variant spellings: Fair, Phair, Farr, and Pharr.Presumably, before 1400 the family lived in northern France.They imigrated from France to Scotland in the fifteenth century,and to Northern Ireland about 200 years later. The earliest knowndate of the Pharr family in America was in Pennsylvania in 1749.These were uncles of Walter Fair, from whom we descend. Itappears Walter Fair came to America about 1760, as a young mGeneration OneHenry Phair (Fair)It is believed that he was born and died in Ireland, that hiwife's name was Margaret, and that there were three brothersone sister of record, making at least 5 children in this generation,listed below:1. Henry Fair, died before 1751 in Ireland.2. Edward (Neddy) Phair born ca. 1720, married a Beard nLynchburg, Va. Died in Ga. 1794.3. George Farr died in Pa. in 1751.4. Ephraim Farr died in N.C. in 1784.5. Margaret Phair married a Thompson in Va. Their daughter,Esther Thompson, married a first cousin, Samuel Pharr, the sonGeorge Pharr, 3 above, thus uniting lines 3 and 5.Generation TwoWalter Fair, The Emigrant258Walter Fair was the son of Henry and Margaret (?) Phair. Hwas born 1740-41,in Northern Ireland and died December 21799, in what is now Cabarrus Co., N.C., and is buried in the oRocky River Cemetery across the road from the present locatioof the Rocky River Presbyterian Church. He married in January1767, in York Co., Pa., Sarah Brian (or O'Brian), who was borJune 14, 1750, and died Dec. 3, 1832, in Cabarrus Co., N.C. Hetombstone inscription reads, "Sarah Brian Pharr, wife of WalteFair." It is interesting to note the change in the spelling ofnames between the time of his death and her death 33 years laterHenry Newton Pharr writes on page 36 of his book, citeabove, the five paragraphs quoted below:"Walter Fair (Farr) was in all probability born in Ireland ancame to America as a young man before 1767. His three unclwere here as early as 1749, or probably earlier. He settletemporarily in York Co. (part of Lancaster), where he madapplication June 6, 1768, for 200 acres in Fawn Township. Hmarried in Jan., 1767, Sarah Brian (O'Brian and sometimeO'Brien) ,who, according to tradition, was born at sea. Her familywas fleeing from Scotland after the battle of Culloden Moor1746, when the Stuart cause suffered a disastrous defeat.""In the Fawn Township map the lands for which Walter haapplied were surrounded by those of Henry O'Brian, the probableFather or brother of Sarah. On August 5, 1768, the same HenrO'Brian had "received ticket No. 5126 for 250 acres of landFawn Township," together with John Farr, the p~obable brotheor cousin of Walter.""Enthusiastic reports, however, of virgin forests and fertilefarmlands in Mecklenburg Co., N.C., had reached Walter froPioneer friends of the family in North Carolina. He decided tsell his rights in his approved claim to lands in the Fawn Township, to Henry O'Brian and began his long trek to the south....Walter walked all the way and carried his gun, while Sarah,with her infant son, Henry, rode horseback with all of theirmovables. They arrived in Mecklenburg Co., N.C., sometimeduring the year 1768, and settled in the Rocky River Section.""Walter evidently proved to be a successful farmer. He haacquired approximately five hundred acres of farm land bgrants and purchase, while taking care of a family of 11 children,eight of whom lived to rear families of their own. Walter died ihis 59th year, while Sarah lived to be 82. His comparatively earlydeath may have been due to exposure and the serious woundshad received as a Revolutionary Soldier under General HoratioGates in the battle of Gum Swamp, near Camden, S.C., August 161780. He was a Scotch-Irish Presbyterian, tall, with deeply markedand strong features, and his wife was remarkable for her personal259beauty. His plantation on Rocky River was near the present siteof Pharr's Mill.""The 1790 U.S. Census gave his name as Walter Farr, with oneson over 16 years of age, five sons under 16 and four females,including the head of the family and one slave. Henry NelsonPharr once wrote that 'each of the eight marriages resulted inlarge families and all were members of the Presbyterian Churchin N.C. Some were doctors, some were preachers, some elders, somelegislators, and others private consistent church members, all ofwhom were an ornament to their church and an honor to theircountry, pious, exemplary."On page 9, Henry Newton Pharr quotes a letter of Harry NelsonPharr, as follows:"With few exceptions the Pharrs have been noted for integrity,religious faith, industry, and perseverance. They have beenstudents or seekers after knowledge, peacefully inclined, andengaged in all occupations; they have lived in Scotland, Ireland,and America; have been fairly well-to-do but not immenselywealthy, also law-abiding, and represented in all the wars, but notusually belligerent in character. In addition they have had a highconception of service to fellow men and consideration for others."Generation ThreeChildren of Walter Fair (Farr) and Sarah Brian (O'Brian):1.

The White FamilyScott - Rogers - WhiteOur connection with the Scott, Rogers, and White families isthrough my mother's paternal grandmother, Martha Scott, whomarried Samuel Laird Pharr, Jr.See chapter Ten, "The Pharr Family". Generation Five. following.for the descendants of this couple. among whom we are numbered.Most of the information I am including on the White Familywas found in the book, "We Have Identified Thousands.Enough !"by Adelaide M. and Eugenia W. Lore, published in 1967. InFebruary of 1991 Miss Eugenia was past 100 and still living in anursing home in Concord, N.C., where I visited her. She has givenme permission to quote anything I wish from her book.The Whites came to North Carolina from Pennsylvania about1750 and settled in what is today Cabarrus County. It is mostprobable that they were of Scotch-Irish background. Two earlysettlers with numerous descendants were Archibald White andWilliam White. They MAY have been brothers, but were at leastcousins, as their children are referred to as "cousins" in earlyrecords. W.H. Foote in "Sketches of North Carolina", p. 480, speaksof "Wm. White and his two brothers, James and Archibald..." Lorewrites, p. 5: "Both families were Presbyterian and served as Eldersin Rocky River Church in its earliest years."Martha Scott, my great grandmother, descends from WilliamWhite through William White, Jr., who was among the "CabarrusBlack Boys".Lore writes on page 13 the following four paragraphs:The parents of William White, Jr. the "Cabarrus Black Boy",Came to North Carolina in 1750, immediately after their marriageand established their home in what is now Cabarrus County,living i, three counties without changing their home.""A favorite story to tell the younger members of the family wasOf their trip on horseback from Pennsylvania to her new home.Her wedding slippers and his silk hose are still cherished posses-325sions of descendants. The slippers are of blue brocade silk, bouwith flax, a squirrel skin covered high heel, with silver buckeHis hose are hand knit silk of a mingled brown and white threaknee length.""William White, Jr., was born March 10, 1751, and died July 11794. He married in May, 1773, Jane White, who was born Ma15, 1754 and died May 18, 1837. She was the daughter of WilliWhite who came to North Carolina in 1764.""We know little of William's early life until his participatiin the "Gunpowder Plot" in 1771. In the deposition of JamesAshmore, a member of the band, William is referred to as theof the "widow White", showing us that his father was dead attime. In Foote's Sketches of North Carolina, he is called"cousin". We presume that reference is to the three otherboys, James, John and William, the sons of James White, who wealso members of the "band."
The "Cabarrus Black Boys"In 1771 Governor Tryon found it necessary to gather miliarysupplies to suppress the Regulator uprising. A large quantitygunpowder and other articles were collected in Charlottewagons were acquired to transport these supplies to a cenlocation in the State. A group of young men from Rocky Riveand nearby sections disguised themselves as Indians and staintheir faces (thus the name "Black Boys"). They interceptedwagons at Phifer's Muster Ground, three miles west of Concordthe Charlotte to Salisbury Road. The wagons were unloaded,goods dumped in a heap, and a pistol fired into the sppowder, causing a considerable explosion.Lore writes as follows on pp. 133-134:"We have four historical records which give us the names ofmen we know as the "Cabarrus Black Boys"."Many of you have not heard of their hardships andcourage of their friends who protected them, and warned themall times of any impending danger as they fled from placeplace to save themselves from the bloodthirsty loyalists who weconstantly hunting them.""They certainly carried on under extreme difficulties, plowtheir fields and reaping their crops during the four Yintervening between the time of the "Gunpowder Plot" andsigning of the Declaration of Independence which freed thfrom prosecution.""The deposition of James Ashmore taken from Colo326Records of North Carolina, Vol. 8, page 623, says in part -'Wherewere assembled with himself nine persons, to wit: James ~hite,junr., John White, junr., William White, Roberl Carothers, RobertDavis, Benjamin Cochran, Joshua Hadley, and William White, sonof the widow White, who all went hence, Disguised to Capt.phifer's old muster ground where they found and stopped thewagons, etc.~ signed by James Ashmore.

She married in 1792 John Scott who was born May 15, 1771,and died Feb. 4, 1811. They had four children. After Margaret'sdeath John Scott married (2) Leah Carlock and they had threechildren. "After John's death in 1811, guardians were appointedfor his children by the Cabarrus County Pleas and QuarterSessions Court as follows: Robert Purviance for William; JamesScott for James; Alexander Scott for Alexander C.; and AbrahamAlexander for Leah's children, Eli, Peggy, and John." (Scott, page122).Leah Carlock Scott married Samuel Wallace on August 3, 1813,and they had five children. All of her children are listed in theWallace Fami]y Bible.THE SCOTT FAMILYMost of my information relating to the background of the Scottfamily is taken from the book, "William Scott, 1732/3-1800, ofCabarrus County, North Carolina, And Some of His Descendentswith Allied Lines," by Carol S. Scott, published in 1987 in RockHill, S.C. I came across this book in the Cannon Library inConcord, N.C. Upon calling Carol Scott, she very graciouslymailed me a copy of her book, trusting me for the price ! I amgrateful to h,, and appreciate the work and research she has donein producing Lhis outstanding volume. She notes in her manuscriptthat "lnformation from this book may be used by genealogists andfamily historians provided they cite author, title, and date andplace of publication," which I have done above.Four Scott brothers came to Cabarrus Co., N.C. (then Anson331Co.) in the mid 1700's. Scott says, p. 4: "The family made its firstappearance in 1754 in a church record, and in the 1760's in landrecords." It is believed that they came from Lancaster Co., Pa., and"settled in the southwestern part of what is now Cabarrus County,in the neighborhood served by the Rocky River PresbyterianChurch, and all were members of that church. All four... are lisledamong the "Patriots and Soldiers of the Revolutionary Period" inSpence's history of this church." (p. 6)Scott -Generation OneThe four brothers were:1. John Scott, who died first. His wife's name was Mary and hehad a son named James Scott.2.Alexander Scott, who died after his brother James wrote hiswill in 1771. He had a son, James Scott, who was mentioned inthe brother's will.3. James Scott, who wrote his will Dec. 28, 1771, and died beforeJuly, 1772. It would appear from the will that he had no familyof his own, for he left his estate to his three nephews namedJames Scott.4. William Scott, who was born in 1732/3 and died Sept. 3, 1800.He married Dorothy ? ,probably early in 1753, for the firstchild was born in Dec. of that year.WE DESCEND FROM WILLJAM AND DOROTHY SCOTT.Generation OneWilliam ScottWilliam Scott was one of the founding elders of Rocky RiverPresbyterian Church, as was William White, from whom we alsodescend. The third elder was Col. Robert Harris. Another earlyelder, from whom we also descend, was David Reese. (See ChapterOne "The Reese Family").Scott writes on page 11: "William was constantly engaged in tbeaffairs of his church as elder until just before his death, and inaddition he took an active part in the judicial aspects of countylife. His name appears in Mecklenburg Court records throughoutthe '60's and '70's as a witness to deeds and as a member of thegrand jury." As noted earlier in this chapter, he was one of thesigners of the petition for pardon of the "Cabarrus Black Boys" in33217711t would appear that he aided in the Revolution by supply-ing provisions, and perhaps horses, for the continental army. In1779 he was appointed a Justice for Mecklenburg County, and in1793 after Cabarrus was separated from Mecklenburg, he becamea justice for that county, and was present at sessions of theCounty Court through the year 1799.Scott writes, page 12: "William died on the 3rd of September,1800, as recorded in his son James' Bible. His life had paralleledthe development of his community from a sparsely settled colonialwilderness to a part of a newly organized county in a new state ofa thriving new nation. He seems to have been a conscientious andeducated man, and he made a long and solid contribution to thestabilizing institutions of Cabarrus County.""His will did not survive, but court records show that "Dor-othea" Scott and John Scott were named executors. In those daysit was quite usual among the Scotch-Irish for a wife to be namedone of the executors of her husband's will. John was theiryoungest son."Scott -Generation TwoChildren of William and Dorothy Scott:1. James Scott was born Dec. 3, 1753, and died Aug. 24, 1817.

However, there arebaptismal records for these two Scott children at Rocky RiverPresbyterian Church for May, 1828. Possibly, Martha Suzannedied at a young age, since the next child, who was my maternalgreat grandmother, was also named Martha. Since the Father ofMartha Rogers was Seth Rogers, it would not be unusual that shenamed a son after her father. A birth date of 1828 would fitamong the other children of this family.

See Chapter Ten. "The Pharr Familv". Generation Five,for the continuation of this line, Among whom we are named and numbered. It has been said that the Howie family is of French originbeing either Albigenses or Waldensians, and that they cameScotland, about the twelfth or thirteenth century, to escareligious persecution. It is possible also that they were Hugenotsand emigrated to Scotland in the sixteenth century.A document in the possession of Johnston Howie of CabCo., N.C., which was written by a Presbyterian minister froTennessee in the 1930's, relates the following:"The Howie family was first planted in Scotland in 117Emigrants from the Waldensian Vallies in France during thtwelfth century, three brothers surnamed Howie, took up theiresidence in Scotland. One made his home in the Parish of MearnsRenfrewshire; another in the Parish of Cracie, Ayrshire; while ththird chose for his abode "Lochcoin", Parish of Fenwick, Ayrshire,where, in an unbroken succession his descendants still remain.""For centuries no records were kept, none being found previoto 1614, when there is mention of a "Will and Testament"made bJohnne Howie of "Lochcoin". John, James, and William have benames through each succeeding generation. Nine and twentpersons by the name of John Howie have lived at "Lochcoin"."The inscription on a gravestonein the old church yard oFenwick, Ayrshire, Scotland, reads:In memory of James Howie of "Lochcoin" who died Nov. 11691, and John Howie his eldest son who died Jan. 19, 175aged 90 years.""These eminent Confessors were distinguished by theisteadfast adherence to the Covenanted Reformation, during thlast persecution, amid many trials and dangers. Ten or twelvtimes were they spoiled of their goods, and they themselvescompelled to seek safety in the moss hags around their solitardwelling. While several of their companions in tribulation, whoccasionally obtained shelter at"lochcoin", were honored withe martyr's crown, they escaped every personal danger an341survived the days of bioody persecution which deprived Scotlanof many of her best sons."This is an interesting account but must be considered in therealm of tradition rather than fact. It appears more likely to methat the family is of Huguenot origin, rather than Waldensian,and that they fled to Scotland to escape the persecutions inFrance in the fifteenth century rather than those which tookplace two or three centuries earlier. This would explain why norecords are found in Scotland prior to the Will of 1614. Many ofthe Huguenot Protestants left France during these years ofpersecution, and the name "Howie" is more closely akin to thoseof Huguenot derivation, than those which would be of Waldensianorigin. My wife is a native Italian, and a student of Philology,and this is her conclusion. Her maiden name was "Coisson" whichis one of the ancient Waldensian names, and she was raised as aWaldensian in the Vallies of the Italian Piedmont. The presenceof Waldensians in North Carolina at Valdese could easily lead oneto connect ancestors from Scotland who had emigrated fromFrance in earlier centuries with the Waldensians. Peter Waldo, therecognized "father" of the Waldensian Church, was a wealthymerchant in Lyon, France, who was converted about 1170. He an~his followers had to retreat into the Cottian Alps, and the regionbecame, and still remains, their place of residence. it is today apart of northern Italy, in the Province of Piedmont, near the ciGeneration Oneof Turin.It is believed that three Howie brothers came from Scotland to_America and settled in North Carolina between 1770 and 1785.1. William Howie was born in Scotland in 1751 and died inMecklenburg Co., N.C. in 1819. He married Elizabeth Howey whowas born in America in 1766 and died in Mecklenburg Co.in1825. She was a daughter of John Howey of Union Co., N.C.While the spelling of the names is different, and also the pronun-ciation [ Howie is pronounced "Who-E" and Howey is pronounced"How-E" ], it is possible and probable that the three HOWIFbrothers who came to Mecklenburg Co. and the HOWEY familywhich settled in Union County were close cousins in Scotland·Both William and Elizabeth are buried in the cemetery of tbeProvidence Presbyterian Church in Mecklenburg Co.They hadseven children.2. Samuel Howie, FROM WHOM WE DESCEND.

I had never seen the letter until July 22, 1991. JohnstonHowie kept inquiring about it, saying that my uncle, Corum(Code) Pharr, had shown it to him and kept it in an old familybible. I thought it must be in the possession of Code's daughter,Mattie Pharr Dunn. But my wife remembered a Bible whichCode's wife, Nona, had given us about a dozen years ago on a visitto North Carolina. It had no covers and many of the pages weremissing. I had put it in an old English Bible Box which mybrother, Sammy Reese, had given us more than twenty years ago,and I had not thought of it since. When I located the Bible andlooked through it on July 22, there was the letter just as Johnstonhad remembered. I am including it here. It is copied withoutcorrections in spelling or grammar.

Chapter ThirteenThe Foard -Morris -Johston ConnectionThe Secrist - Rea ConnectionIt is through Mary Melissa Johnston that we are related to theJohnston, Morris, and Foard families and the Rea, Secrist, Simms,and Black families. Mary Melissa Johnston was my great grand-mother and the mother of Martha Johnston (Mattie) Howie whowas the mother of Mary Scotland Pharr who married John DudleyReese, Jr. I begin this line with John Foard as Generation One.
THE FOARD FAMILYGeneration OneIt is believed that three brothers migrated from Maryland toNorth Carolina ca. 1750-55.1. Wyatt Foard settled in Rowan Co., N.C.2. Francis Foard settled in Caswell (now Person) Co., N.C.3. John Foard settled in Anson (now Mecklenburg) Co., N.C.IT IS THROUGH THIS LINE THAT WE DESCEND.Generation OneJohn Foard, The SignerJohn Foard was born May 10, 1727, in Somerset Co., Md. Somerecords say he was born in Ireland, but there was a PresbyterianElder John Foard in Somerset County, on the Eastern Shore ofMaryland as early as 1710, mentioned in the first stories ofFoote's Sketches of Virginia. As that region furnished many ofthe early settlers of Mecklenburg Co., N.C., it is most ~probablethat the John Foard of Mecklenburg was descended from theMaryland Presbyterian family of the same name. He marriedabout 1749,in Maryland, Catherine Robinett.As early as January 27, 1770, he is found among the membersof the Clear Creek congregation in Mecklenburg Co. Hewasamong the Signers of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Indepen-dence in Charlotte, N.C., on May 20, 1775. He was a magistrateand member of the County Court of Mecklenburg Co. He servedin Col. Charles Polk's Dragoons in the spring of~1881 and was one380of the "Raft Swamp Expedition". He died ca. 1800 in MecklenburgCo. He was a charter Ruling Elder in the Philadelphia Presbyteri-an Church and is buried in the Philadelphia Presbyterian ChurchCemetery, at Mint Hill, N.C., where the DAR has placed a markerwhich notes his part as a Signer of the Mecklenburg Declarationof Independence.John Foard is represented by descendants in the Society of theCincinnati. Mrs. Meynard [See Chapter Nine, "The HamptonFamily"] writes in her Preface to "The Venturers: The Hampton,Harrison, and Early Families of Virginia, South Carolina, andTexas" concerning the Society of the Cincinnati, as follows:"This is the oldest of the American patriotic organizations andwas formed at the close of the Revolution in 1783 by commis-sioned officers of the Continental Army. A French branch wasformed by officers of the French Army and Navy who assistedthe Americans in the war. The founders ordained that the societyshould not perish with them but should be perpetuated throughthe years by their first-born sons or their eldest male posterity.The society was named for that illustrious Roman, LuciusQuintius Cincinnatus, a farmer who was made dictator to defendRome. After driving out the invaders, he resigned the dictatorshipand returned to his plow."John Foard did the same and has left a line of patrioticdescendants.The Will Of John FoardThis will is recorded in the Mecklenburg Co. Court House inCharlotte, N.C."In the Name of God, Amen. the 25th day of April in the yearof our Lord God 1798, I, John Foard, of Mecklenburg County &State of North Carolina, being worn in body but of perfect mind& memory, thanks be given unto God, therefore calling unto mindthe mortality of my body, and knowing that it is appointed untoall men once to die, do make and ordain, this my last will andtestament, that is to say principally & first of all I give andrecommend my Soul into the hands of God who gave it; and formy body I recommend it to the earth to be interred in a Christianlike and decent manner at the direction of my Executors, nothingdoubting but at the General Resurrection I shall receive the sameagain by the mighty power of God; And as touching such worldlyestate wherewith it pleases God to bless me in this life, I give,divide, & dispose of the same in the following manner Rr form:""ImPrimis.

Thenumbers are given in order of descent, beginning with the eldest,and lines can be easily located and traced.I have also keyed these Johnston Family numbers to thenumbers previously given for the descendants of Samuel LairdPharr, Jr., and Martha Scott (Chapter Ten, "The Pharr Family).Where a Pharr descendant is also found among the JohnstonDescendants, the Johnston Family number is followed by a dash_ and the letter "P", followed by a second number, indicating theplace in the Pharr line of descent.I have also keyed these Johnston Family numbers to thenumbers previously given for the descendants of Jeremiah (Jerry)Howie and Mary (Polly) Corum (Chapter Twelve, "The HowieFamily"). Where a Howie Descendant is also found among theJohnston Descendants, the Johnston Family number is followed bya dash and the letter "H", followed by a second number,indicating the place in the Howie line of descent.This enables the reader to easily locate the Pharr and Howiedescendants when they also appear in the Johnston line ofdescent.

I had a letter each fromSusie Hessie & Bessie last week. They are having a fine time.""I think you were perfectly right to write to Mary's father. Itwas what Iexpected you to do. And I know Mr. Pharr appreciatedthe consideration you showed him. I don't agree with him thoabout leaving the matter entirely in Mary's hands. For when inthis particular case Mary has made no mistake. But I really thinkthat God in his wisdom has not given women any good senseabout the qualities of the man they iove. For when a woman lovesa man his good qualities are magnified and he has no real badones."I sent your letter to the girls and know that Hessie will laughat your "Epistle to Mary".

But I do hope it will not be yr lot as has been mine to los~her, for I tell you Jno when a man loves his wife as 1 did min~and knows that she loves him too and death takes her, he neverceases to miss her and he misses her in so many ways the compan-ion that comes only to those who really love, the sweet confiden-tial talks that a man can have only with his wife the memoriesthey recall of their children and of the sweet childhood days i~something that is lost forever to me.

There is no enelopeand it is not dated."Tuesday""Dear Papa:""------ I do appreciate your letter so much and am glad thatyou wrote just as you did for I know that you and Mama wereperfectly happy, and that she was a true companion to you, andI never saw her the least bit "put out" with you. And I think Papathat I am getting "a girl just like the girl who married Dear OldDad," and I think that God just kept me single until I could meetMary, for I know that my love for her will last always, and knowthat she loves me. There is no one for me to talk Mary to here soI guess you are going to get something of her every week. She gotyour letter and appreciated it very much."but Mary and myself have decided that it would bebetter for me to have work where we could be settled in one placeso as to make a home.

We were glad to receive your letter. We were not attall surprised, for every letler we had from Mary she told howmuch she liked Fla. I began to think there must be someone sheliked better than the place, for she always said some thing aboutMr. Reese, how nice he was etc. Later she told of the relationbetween you. If you two think you can live happier to gather it isall right. Mary is one of the very best girls in all the world andyou will have some thing to be proud of. I do not say this becauseshe is mine it is that I know her and she deserves one of the bestof men.

Of course I knew olthe Pharrs of the Carolinas and that they were Presbyterians buiI just knew I had heard of a Pharr in a more familiar way and aisoon as Mother spoke of the preacher named Pharr I knew it wa~he I was trying to think of. I am going to see her this P.M. andwill take the clipping and read it to her. Now don't you know shewill be tickled to know it is one of these good staunch CarolinaPresbytertians that her oldest grandson is going to marry. Ofcourse I am not, no not one bit ! I confess as you know so wellam proud of my God fearing cultured ancestry, and so proud tcknow Mary is of the same splendid stock. Yes indeed it is andalways has been the best blood in America. Not a cheap aristocra-cy of money but the aristocracy of culture, refinement, andGodliness. The men who founded the Republic and whose descen-dants today are its best citizens. Now you see what you did youwound me up on my hobby. I will ask Mother this P.M. the givenname of the Pharr mentioned above. I am sure she knows it. (SamlK Pharr. She remembered you see)""Thigpen removed the cataract Thursday and the operation wasapparently a success but of course we don't know yet. Sallie saysthe bandages will be removed one day next week when we willthen know if she can see.

As soon as we know I will ~irite you and I want you to writeto her. You have no idea how she enjoyed that letter telling her of"Mary". She has had it read to her many many times.

Anyway her her heart is set on having youyoung folks with us on Thanksgiving and the thought will giveher more reasons to make all efforts to get well.

Johnston"When my brother, Samuel Pharr (Sammy) Reese, died inSeptember, 1985, I had to empty my mother's house where she hadlived for more than 59 years. It was a "Full House." Mother neverthrew away anything. I was careful to inspect everything andread hundreds and hundreds of letters. On the top shelf of thesecretary in her bedroom were two boxes carefully tied withribbon. When I opened the smaller box I saw from the dates thatthese were the "love letters" she and Daddy had written beforethey married, and Icarefully tied the ribbon again and broughtthe two boxes, with other treasures, to Dothan. I somehow felt itwould be an invasion of mother's privacy to read these particularLetters while she was living, and so I replaced them on the topshelf of her secretary once we had it installed in our home.Mother died three years later in October, 1988, just six days afterher 97th birthday. I thought of the letters after that from time totime and meant to open the boxes and read them. But the moodhas to be right, and it just didn't happen.In May, 1991, our daughter Gemma had her fourth child,Joseph Bradley Fowler. My wife went to Birmingham to spendtwo weeks with her, and late on the first Sunday afternoon inJune, looking for something else, my eyes fell upon the boxes ofletters, so I got them down to read them. I opened first the boxwhich I had not opened six years before. The top letter gave mequite a start. The faded envelope had written on it "To John D."As it turned out, the letter was not to me, but to my Father.That is what mother often called him in the early years of theirmarriage and before I was born. The letter was written in 1929,one month and one day before my birth, and I am including ithere.

What a riAUNT SUSIE'S STORIES"AND MY YOUTH COMES BACK TO ME"Chapter One"Our Town"Often I think of my old home town of Hayneville, populationthree hundred, in the rich Black Belt of Alabama. Those were thedays of the 1890's and the early nineteen hundreds.We were an average family of seven children, an old maid aunt,and a widowed grandmother.We had no nursing homes in those days, for our old people weretenderly cared for in the homes of their children or relatives.If we had sickness or trouble of any kind, our neighbors andfriends were there to help. We had two good doctors in the town,who would come to us whenever needed, and if necessary, spendthe night. Aunt Susan, the colored mid-wife, assisted at thebirthings.There were four churches in our town: Presbyterian, Episcopal,Methodist, and Baptist. We had services at each church once amonth, with a non-resident preacher presiding. The same choirsang and the same congregation attended all the services.Our family was Presbyterian and the only difference I couldsee in the church doctrines, was that the Episcopal children couldplay baseball and other noisy games outside on Sunday afternoonsand we couldn't, being Presbyterian. I remember how I longed tobe an Episcopalian.We stayed inside and studied the Bible, Iremember my brotherslooking all through the Bible to find the word "whore", thengleefully showing it to me, and saying, "She's the one who does allthe dirty work." Well, I thought the dirty work meant emptyingthe slops and the garbage and feeding the hogs. I didn't knowabout any other dirty work. I always felt sorry for the poorwhores.We always gathered around the piano for music. We did havemusical talent in our family. Our parents had lovely voices andwere familiar with the best in musical literature. My motherplayed on the old square piano and we spent many happy hoursas she taught her children simple tunes from the folk songs and455classics.My father was an inveterate reader and possessed a finelibrary. We could choose any book to read, but for every one ofour choosing we had to read one of his choice. Elsie Dinsmoreagainst David Copperfield, etc. The Elsie books carried me all theway through Charles Dickens, and some of Walter Scott. Some-times, Papa's enthusiasm for my classical learning went a bit toofar. Omar Kayam was a little heavy for an eight year old. WhenI read "a loaf of bread and thou", I thought "thou" was somethinglike jam or butter to spread on the bread. Then I couldn't find theword "enow" in the dictionary. I asked Papa the meaning of"enow", and he said, "It just means now." So later, when Mamasaid, "It's time for you to go to bed, Susie", I said, "What ! Enow ?"She asked Papa, "What is that child talking about?" and Papa justsmiled.I am grateful to my parents that I acquired a taste for the bestin music and English literature.Our town was not a rube village. We had a good school, withexcellent teachers. Discipline was no problem, for the studentswere there to learn, not to loiter. Our parents belonged to aliterary club, a singing chorale, and a theatrical group. We neverlacked for entertainment, in our town, though it was long beforethe time of movies and radio. Even the gramaphone was rare.We went to concerts and plays, performed by our own entertainers. The whist and five hundred card clubs, and the dominoparties, provided recreation for all ages.We had an excellent (we thought) baseball team that challengedothers in the neighboring towns. We even had a racetrack, wherethe best horses were tried out, and where Papa would take us allto ride, in the Surrey.No, we never lacked for good times and fun in our town.Chapter Two"Memorial Dav"April twenty-sixth, Confederate Memorial Day, was a day ofgreat interest and pleasure to us and the neighboring towns. Westarted the day with a march to the cemetery where we decoratedwith flowers the graves of the Confederate veterans and thegraves of the unknown Yankees. The children who marched werechosen to represent each of the Confederate States, holding aloftthe state's banner as they marched.Mrs. Murray always trained us and chose our banners. I alwayswanted to be Alabama or South Carolina, but those honors were456always gives to Mrs. Murray's grandchildren. Back from thecemetery, we met in the town square, where we had a program ofsongs and speeches. We always sang "The Bonnie Blue Flag" and,of course, "Dixie"; followed by the "Rebel Yell" given by the fewsurviving old veterans.Then we had an eloquent speech by an official or a politicianfrom Montgomery. We always had a recitation by one of theyoung women in the county. How I longed for that honor. WhenI was sixteen, it was given me and I recited "Little Giffen ofTennessee" with (I'm afraid) appropriate gestures.Everybody brought baskets of lunches; and, of course, we hadbarbeque, and big tubs of lemonade. (Why does lemonade alwaystaste better from a tub ?). Coca-Cola hadn't been invented yet.At dusk the memorial part was over and we wound up the daywith dance in the courthouse. To us, memorial Day was next toChristmas.Chapter Three"Christmas"Christmas in our town was a happy time of feasting and fun.The boys and girls came home from college, and relatives visitedduring the holidays.We started the festivities a few nights before Christmas Day,with a Christmas Tree in the schoolhouse; everybody came, oldand young We sang carols and had recitations about Christmas;and then Santa Claus (always represented by my Father) gavepresents to the children. After that, we went outside and shotfireworks on the school grounds. We always had our fireworks atChristmas instead of July 4thIn our family on Christmas Eve, Papa always read the Dickens'"Christmas Carol" to us. Then we would hang up our stockings andhurry to bed. Before daylight we were up to see what Santa Clausbrought. Then, still before dawn, the colored people, from theplantation, began gathering in the front yard. We could hear themcalling, "Crismus Gif, Miss Sallie. Crismus Gif, Missa Reese."Mama loved Christmas and had a gift for every child on theplantation, and dress material for each of the women.Papa had drinks for the men. They all sang and danced in theyard, and we sang and danced in the yard also. What happymemories we have of Christmas.But, when I think about that usual Christmas day, of seventyyears ago, my eyes still dim with tears; for on that night, our pre-cious mother left us for her heavenly home.I grew up then, for the responsibilities of an adult were placed457upon me.Now I am old with the passing of eight and eighty years, butlike a rare jewel in a translucent case, I treasure the preciousmemories of those long ago days -any my youth comes back tome.Chapter Four"Our Familv Servants"We were not a wealthy family, but we had plenty of coloredhelp. Hannah, the cook; Pinkey, the wash woman; Aunt Margaret,who cleaned up the house --we had as many nurses as we hadbabies. Allen took care of the livestock and Martin, the little 12-year-old son of Pinkey, just did errands.Aunt Margaret always wore a buckeye around her neck and agood luck charm on an ankle bracelet. She was old, but mostenergetic and would dance a war dance for us.She always saidshe had Injun blood in her. Her husband was Unker Burk. Heworked in the cotton fields all week, but on Sunday he dressed upwith his long tail coat and went to the neighboring plantationwhere he preached in the colored church.My brothers would often slip off on Sunday afternoons and goto hear Unker Burk preaching and I would tag along. It was soexciting, especially when some of the congregation got'deligion.I remember one sermon he preached on "De Goneness of de Past","De Nowness of de Present" and "De Skeerdness of de Future." Ididn't mind about the Past and the Present, but he really left me'skeered' of the Future. The Baptisms and the Funerals wereexciting also.In that little Negro church, I felt the ecstasy of religion asnever before or since. When they sang, I joined in, with all thefervor my little musical soul could muster. When I got too noisy,my brothers took me home. I am glad that I felt the spirit of thatold time religion in that little church. It has stayed with mealways. a"Living In Sin"I remember so well our cook, Hannah. She was very black andvery fat, and I loved her dearly.She lived down the road a piece, in a little house, with Mose,her friend.Mama said they were living in sin and should get married, andshe spoke to Hannah about it. Hannah said, "Oh, Miss Sallie, itcosts too much money to get married."458"How much," said Mama."Five dollars," she replied."Alright," said Mama, "I will give you the five dollars, and youand Mose get married; and you can have three days off fromwork."Three days later, a beaming Hannah was back in the kitchen."Well, I suppose you got married," said Mama."Well, Miss Sallie, me and Mose didn't see no use in spending allthat money to get married, so we just bought us a hanging lamp,"said Hannah.But that is not the end of the story, for Mose murdered poorHannah. He shot her in the head and the law hung him in the jailyard till he was dead, dead, dead.Chapter Five"A TriD To The City"In those days of the early 1900's, the people in our town didtheir shopping for clothes and household furnishings in Mont-gomery, 20 miles away. That was quite a journey. We rode in theHack to Letohatchee, seven miles, where we boarded the L&Ntrain to the big city. The Hack was a large six seated carriagehitched to two horses, and driven by a colored man named Hodge.The train passed Letohatchee at 8 A.M.,so if the weather was niceHodge would call for us at 6 A.M. Otherwise, it would be an early5 o"clock. The thrill of a trip to Montgomery I can never forget.I revelled in the mystery of the early morning, the comfortableHack and the fast horses. The country side was so interesting,passing different farm houses, and every mile counting the mileposts that showed the distance we had come. The excitement ofriding on that big train, the many strange passengers, the butcherboy selling newspapers and candy, the conductor with his shinycap coming by to punch our tickets !When we arrived in the big city, the noise was overpowering;but I liked it. One thing of most excitement was the trip to thebath room of the depot. The water closet had tanks that were setceiling high, with a long chain dangling down. You pulled thechain that sent the water rushing noisily down through the pipesto the basin below. The only water system we had in our town inthose days was our well. We had a little house at the back of thegarden instead of a water closet, so pulling that chain was truiyexciting.After leaving the depot we would get on a street car and rideuptown to Dexter Avenue where all the stores were. Mama would459spend hours shopping at The Fair, A. Nachman's and Nachmanand Mertiefs. Then we would go to Fitzpatricks Cafe and orderfried oysters. First the waiter would bring bread and butter -thatdelicious bread that was not homemade and the little pats ofbutter were so good. We would eat it all before the oysters came.Then we would wind up with chocolate ice cream. I have never,since then, had gourmet food anywhere that so pleased myappetite as Fitzpatrick's - not homemade bread, fried oysters, andchocolate ice cream. After the feast we would walk up DexterAvenue, looking in the beautiful shop windows and the foun-tains in the square, seeing the Alex Rice sign, "Your Money'sWorth or Your Money Back" with lights that went on and off.Mama would stop at the bakery and buy a pone of not home-made bread -then some bananas at the Dago stand.Back to the depot and train, Hodge meeting us in Letohatchee,and home again; tired, but happy, with stories to tell and nothomemade bread and bananas for the unfortunate ones whodidn't have the wonderful trip to Montgomery.Chapter Six"Our Friends""The McGrath's"Ethel was my best friend. Her parents were Mr. and Mrs.McGrath -pronounced McGraw -Mr. Matt and Miss Cora.Our families were very intimate and Ethel and I being thesame age were best friends. I was a few months the elder, andnever let her forget it, until we grew up.The McGrath family had come from Ireland, in bygone years,and were Roman Catholic. We were strict Presbyterians, but thedifference in our religious beliefs never interferredwith theFamilies' friendship,Mr. Matt and Papa talked politics and played checkers together.Miss Cora and Mama belonged to the same clubs and took turnstaking each other places in their bubbys. I called Mrs. McGrathmy "other mother".Ethel and I ate lunch together at school recess, played dollstogether, and spent nights with each other on weekends.Of course, on Sunday our family went to Sunday School andChurch, but the McGraths, having no Catholic Church, held theirown service at home. At intervals a priest would come down fromMontgomery and hold services for them.Mrs. McGrath would fix an altar in front of the fireplace in,460the parlor with pictures of Jesus and the Holy Virgin and manycandles on the mantelpiece. It was so beautiful and I did wish ourPresbyterian Church could look that way. When the priest came,Mama would let me spend the night with Ethel so I could go to theservice. They always had it very early on Suunday morning, so Icould still go to my Sunday Schoiol and Church.Some of our church members thought my parents were wrongin allowing me to go to a Catholic service, but Mama always said,"If Susie can grow up to be like Miss Cora, I will be satisfied."Papa would say, "Matt McGrath is the best man I ever knew. andI don't think the exposure to their religion is going to hurt Susie."And it never did.I am still a Presbyterian, but I have always felt a deep respectand bond of friendship with the Catholics."Miss Caddv And Bud Dule"Miss Caddy and her brother, Jules, lived in a little unpaintedcottage on a high hill. In front, their private roadway led downthrough pasture land covered with grass. Wild plum and berrythickets, peach, pear, apple, and cherry trees flourished there. Thegrowth that I remember most was the briar patches, some as largeas the hen house. I always expected Brer Rabbit to jump out as Ipassed.The entire piace was enclosed with a barbwire fence, so thecows and sheep could safely graze in this pasture paradise. Thefront yard had a poling fence around it and was filled with allkinds of flowers tenderly cared for by Bud Dule.But the violets were Miss Caddy's own tendings, and they grewlavishly, row after row of beautiful purple violets. Ethel and Iwould visit Miss Caddy after school and she would let us pick allthe violets we wanted. Then we would help her gather guinea eggsfrom the bushes in the pasture. Guineas were so pretty with theirgray feathers and white spots. They never went in the chickenhouse like the proper old hens to lay their eggs.After having refreshments of tea cakes and lemonade, wewould play dominoes with Miss Caddy until time to go home. Thatwas a happy time in my childhood so long ago, but so wellremembered.Bud Dule was the town cobbler, only we called him theshoemaker. He inherited his talent and his cobbler's equipmentfrom his father, Herman Seidle. The Seidle and Schneider familiescame to this country from Germany and somehow landed in ourtown.Bud Dule made and mended shoes for the whole countryside,461and his shop was always a busy place. Ethel and I liked to watchhim at his work. We liked the smell of leather. Especially, weliked the candy cinnamon drops he would give us. Bud Dule neverhad much to say, but he was so gentle and had such a nice smile,and we liked him very much.;dDivorce was almost a profane word in the early nineteenhundreds. Marriages were supposed to have been made in heaven,although some might have seemed to originate in the oppositeplace. However, there had never been a divorce in our town.Miss Emma Baxter was an Old Maid. She must have been atleast thirty. In her youth she was engaged to a fine young manwho was killed while helping the sheriff arrest a burglar.After many years of mourning for her lover Miss Emma visitedfriends in Birmingham and married Mr.Abernathy. He was a ~widower with two children and a stranger to us all. We were veryhappy for Miss Emma, but a year later, she came back to the oldfamily home and announced that she was divorced. It shocked theentire community, and she was looked upon as a marked woman.Not only did she come back with the mark, but she brought Mr.Abernathy's two children with her. I was eager to see the childrenas well as the mark, so with Mama's permission, Ethel and Ivisited them.To my surprise, Miss Emma looked just the same as always, andI didn't see any mark. Ethel and I did like the children, and webecame friends. Mr. Abernathy was never seen in our town, butMiss Emma loved and cared for those children until they weregrown."The Schneider Sisters"Miss Minnie and Miss Clara were two old maid sisters wholived up on a high hill in a little white house. They had retiredfrom all social life in our town after their Mama and Papa died.When they went out they were always dressed in black and worelong black widow's veils.They lived in absolute seclusion, allowing no one in the houseor even in the front yard. Things were delivered at the gate, andthe colored man who milked their cow left the milk on the backporch.How we wondered about that house and longed to see inside.We would imagine Bluebeard and his dead wives' skeletons onevery wall.462However, Miss Minnie and Miss Clara would go calling, once ayear, on their Mama's and Papa's old friends. I remember howexcited we were when they came to our house for their annualvisit. They always left visiting cards.The only person who could ever enter their house was a nephewwho lived in Montgomery. He would come down every now andthen to bring things they needed and to look after them. Theyresented, in a way, his coming and felt that he came only to seewhat they had, that he might inherit.When Miss Minnie died, Miss Clara buried all her Mama'sjewelry with her. Then she got all the things of value together, i.e.pictures, dishes, bric-a-brac, and the clock they brought over fromGermany. These things she took in the back yard and chopped upwith an axe.She lived a few years longer by herself, and no one but thenephew ever entered her house. Miss Clira died all alone and hernephew found her poor emaciated body on the floor of the littlewhite house on the hill."Miss Mildred And Miss Miriam"Miss Mildred and Miss Miriam were sisters and were the mostbeautiful and glamorous ladies in our town. They were from afamily of wealth and culture. Their father was a congressman andtheir mother, a leader in our literary circles. They had a beautifulhome just out of town.Miss Mildred and Miss Miriam were always gowned in thelatest fashion. They were never seen in a homemade dress or onemade by Miss Ruth, our local dressmaker. I don't think they evenshopped in Montgomery, but must have ordered their elegantgowns from New York. They would drive through our townwearing those beautiful clothes and their hats drooping withwillow plumes.That was a feast to the eyes for Ethel and me, equal to anyfashion show from Hollywood you might see now on T.V. Weplanned to be just like Miss Mildred and Miss Miriam and wearhats with willow plumes, when we grew up.But alas, when we arrived at that glamorous age of maturity,willow plumes were no longer in style, and we had to be contentwith a feather or a flower on our chapeaux.I often think, with a sense of loss, that I never had a hat witha willow plume.463"The Yankees"We needed another doctor in our town. Our Doctor Pritchettfound that he could not carry alone the burden of all the illnesses,black and white, in the town and countryside. In those days, thedoctors made housecalls day and night, sometimes spending hours,or even all night with a very sick patient.So our doctor invited Dr. Marlette, a former medical collegeclassmate, to come and share his practice. The Marlettes werefrom Ohio, so that meant they were Yankees. No Yankees hadlived in our town since Reconstruction Days, so we lookedforward with some trepidation to the coming of the Yanks.It was one of the best things that ever happened to our town!Not only was Dr. Marlette a fine doctor and a great gentleman,but his wife was a lovely lady of culture who soon captured the i'friendship of all our folk. To add to their virtues, they wereEpiscopalians and gave their time and help to St. AndrewsChurch.Their sons, Clark and Maurice, fit easily into our youth group;and though we pronounced our words differently, we found theYanks just like the rest of us. All the Marlettes were red-headed,and I thought until I was much older that all Yankees had redhair.Imarried in 1917 and a few months later Ireceived a letter ofgood wishes from Clark. It was written from "Somewhere inFrance" in a tunnel, forty feet under the ground, during the firstWorld War. It is among the treasured letters of my youth.Chapter Seven"Kin And Near Kin"In our town we claimed kin with our par-ents' close friends.The elderly women we called, "Ai" -that was for Aunt- soundinglike the first sound of the word,'and', without the I'n-d';as "AiCalley" or "Ai Bertha". If the name began with a vowel, wepronounced the'T' as" Aunt Alice" or" Aunt Olivia". The elderlymale friends we called, "Unker" as "Unker Charlie", "Unker Phil"etc. We also bestowed little titles on the colored elderly.Ai Susan was a colored elderly who was the midwife for all thewhite mothers. She presided most efficiently, with or without thedoctors at the birthings. We all loved and respected her. She calledus "her children". I think she must have lived to reach the centurymark and probably delivered children most of that time.Ai Lizzie was another beloved and respected colored elderly. She464could be called on for anything and everything, by anybody andeverybody at anytime. She would come to help out at illness in oufamily, or babies, or even at hog killing time.She was distinguished for one thing; Ai Lizzie was the onlynative of our town who had crossed the ocean. She went to Russia(pronounced Roosia) with the Swabackers, a family who hadsomehow emigrated to Hayneville. They went back to Roosia ona visit and took Ai Lizzie along. She had marvelous stories to tellwhen she came back. We would sit for hours listening to her talkabout Roosia and the ocean.We called our parents' younger adult friends, "Cud'n" - anAlabama abbreviation for'cousin'.We children loved to go visit with Cud'n Rella. She was veryfat and very jolly, eccentric too, but most endearing. She had nochildren of her own. She would sit on her front porch after schooland urge us to come in as we passed. Then she would give us teacakes and lemonade or hot chocolate or maybe a cold sweet potato.I would play the piano and we would all sing together. Songs like"49 Bottles Hanging on the Wall" and "Hello, Central, Give MeHeaven." I have such wonderful memories of dear Cud'n Rella.Cud'n Leona was real kin. She was my mother's cousin, abeautiful and charming young woman. After a short and happymarriage, she was left a widow with a small son. She lived withher family and taught in our village school.Her husband's brother had gone years before to Mexico to seekhis fortune and had found it. He invited Cud'n Leona and herlittle boy to visit him. With the help of family and friends theywent to Tampico, Mexico. Her visit became a romantic storybecause she married the rich brother and had a life of happinessand luxury in Mexico.Every year she would come home to visit and bring presents forus all. She never forgot even the smallest child. I remember thelittle painted gourds and the pictures made of feathers. Thosewere days of great excitement when Cud'n Leona came fromMexico."The Teenagers"I had my first date when I was thirteen years old. You didn'tcall it a "date" in those days. You called it "going with". I remem-ber the excitement and thrill of that first going with a boy, but Icouldn't think of a thing to talk about. I was struck dumb and hewas also, so we went to the party in absolute silence. It was apound party; each of us took a pound of refreshments: cake,cheese, deviled eggs, or whatever your mother fixed. Altogetherit made a grand feast.465Hayrides were great fun. A big wagon, or maybe two, cush-ioned with a load of hay on which we sat. We sang, told stories,giggled and flirted, maybe held hands in the dark. Holding handswas as far as ever we went.If I had kissed a boy I would have been afraid I'd be pregnantthe next day. We just didn't do those things. We called that being"fast" and no girl in town was fast. At least I didn't suspectanyone. Sometimes, fast girls came down from Montgomery to ourdances. We knew they were fast because they were from the cityand they were so popular with our boys and they wore such prettyclothes. Of course, we were not jealous.We often went possum hunting at night and picnics by day. Wehunted for chestnuts and chinquapins and went roller skating inthe schoolhouse. We had no paved streets on which to skate. Wehad baseball games between our team and those of the neighbor-ing towns.Plays and concerts by our local talent and parties and dancesthroughout the long holidays kept the good times going.I got some of my biggest thrills from the seranades given by theboys. They would gather under our windows, late at night, andsing. Sometimes they would bring a Negro band to play. Howexciting it was to be awakened by that heavenly music, creep tothe window in our nightgowns to see and hear the serenaders.The most fun was our dances. They were held in the bigupstairs courtroom of our courthouse. The boys would move allthe benches out and sprinkle meal on the floor to make it slick forthe dancers. I thing the most pleasure, fun, and joy I had in mywhole life was at those country dances at the courthouse.There was never anything suggestive in the way we danced orthe way we dressed and acted. If a boy was drinking, we didn'tdance with him. If you started dancing with one, not knowing hehad taken a nip, a brother or cousin or someone would break inand rescue you.When the boys gave a dance they would get together before-hand and with a list of all the girls, decide which one each would"go with". Then, they would send us notes.Our town had no telephones in those days, and the making ofa date was done by hand post. The boys would write formal notesrequesting the pleasure of accompanying the girl to a dance orparty or evening church service, sometimes just asking to make acall. The notes were always sent by Hardee, a young black boy.Hardee was no cupid; in fact, he was what we called feebleminded. But, Hardee played the part well, realizing his impor-tance and thoroughly enjoying his romantic role. He always 3waited for an answering note.Ethel and I looked forward to Hardee's coming with eager466anticipation as we sat on the side porch watching for him. Wewould see him when he passed the Baptist church and crossed thebackyard, and we would hug each other in great excitement,wondering who was sending our notes. We were always sure of apartner.Sometimes at the dances, a girl who was not popular or maybenot a good dancer, would be a wallflower. That was a heartbreak-ing experience, to sit out dances with the chaperones becauseafter each boy had dutifully danced once with her they didn't askher again. I remember one girl in particular who was always awallflower. She was a sweet girl and the smartest one in our classat school. But, she had pimples on her face and a bad breath, andIthink that waS why she was a wallflower.I dreaded being a wallflower more than death itself and Ialways followed Elsie Dunsmore's example of prayer before eachoccasion, that I wouldn't be a wallflower; and I never was. I stillthink it was Elsie's example."The Children"In our town, my three little sisters were always known as "TheChildren". The three were close together in years, and I mucholder.When I was almost an adult and they were almost babies, wemoved from our home in town to the plantation. The childrenloved the carefree life of the country, swinging on grape vines inthe woods, picking the wild berries and plums, fishing in the fishpond. They rode Oid Dixie, the horse, played dolls in the big dollhouse Papa made. They always had their little friends from townto visit and enjoy the country life with them.The children were musical and in later years we had anorchestra with Sallie and me at the piano, Hessie with the guitar,Bessie with the violin, and Phil with the drums and harmonica.John formed an important part because he was the audience.Hessie whistled also, and could imitate the birds. We all sang andspent many happy hours with our music.We gave concerts in our town and in later years during WorldWar I we entertained the soldiers at Camp many times with ourmusic.Mama used to sit on the porch and listen to the children as theyplayed in the doll house. Sallie and Hessie had both receivedprizes in the past in baby shows. Bessie, our youngest, had noprize. Mama heard this conversation from the doll house one day.Sallie: "Let's play Buster Brown."Bessie: "Oh, let's do."467Hessie: "All right. Sallie, you can be Buster Brown,'cause he'sthe oldest. I will be Mary Jane, 'cause I'm the prettiest. AndBessie, you can be Tige, "cause you're so ugly."In spite of that slur on her appearance, our ugly ducklingturned into a beautiful swan."DannV"My grandmother, Sarah Dudley (whom we called Danny) wasthe daughter of a cultured and wealthy land owner named JohnDudley. Her Mother was Julia Ann Reese Dudley. She hadbrothers, among them John, Milton (Sonk) and Joe. They wereeach given a plantation by their father when they reached 21years. They served in the Civil War.During the Civil War, my great grandfather's slaves were freed,the stored cotton bales were burned, all farm animals taken, thesmoke house emptied, and the home ransacked by the Yankees.One story I remember told by my grandmother was about oldblack Aunt Ella, who stood by the door of her sick mistress' bed-room with an ax in her hand and dared the Yankees to come in -and they didn't.Another story - my grandmother had valuable jewelry: onecomplete set of pearls, another of rubies, consisting of earrings,broach, ring, and necklace. When they heard the yankees werecoming, Uncle Jim, one of the trusted slaves, buried all thejewelry and most of the silver. After the Yankees passed, UncleJim dug it up and brought it to the house. Then stragglers fromthe Union Army came by and got it all.Danny was a very fine musician, having great talent. Shestudied harp and piano in school in Virginia. I well rememberhow beautifully she played.She married Dr. Charles Edwin Reese, who was a graduate ofPhiladelphia Medical College and practiced medicine in Lowndes-boro until his death. During the war he was in charge of asoldiers' hospital in Selma, Alabama. Danny, with her children,lived with her parents. Her oldest son, John Dudley (my father)was a great favorite of his grandfather, for whom he was named.I have heard him tell about riding horseback, sitting in the samesaddle with his grandpa, all over the plantation. An incident thatI like to tell in connection with the little picture we have of him:His Ma was going to visit his Pa at the hospital in Selma. Littlefour year old Dudley wanted to go also, but had no suitableclothes. His old colored Mammy, Aunt Lize, went up to the atticand found an old dress that she made into a suit for him. Thepicture was made in Selma, wearing the little suit.468Another incident that I like to tell. When the Yankees wereencamped on their front lawn, little Dudley's curiosity overcamehis fear of them, and he went out to investigate. One of thesoldiers picked up the little four year old boy, stood him on abarrel, and said, "Now Dudley, speak a piece for us." He stood upstraight, raised his voice and spoke, "Jeff Davis rides a whitehorse, Lincoln rides a mule; Jeff Davis is a gentleman and Lincolnis a fool." He was wildly applauded, even by the Yankees.My grandmother's brothers, Joe and John, settled in Benton,Alabama. Milton (Uncle Sonk) lived with us after his wife died,for a long time. All brothers served in the War. I often think ofmy good parents and other people of that era - how they kepttheir elderly kin in their homes, and always treated them withrespect and loving care. During my youth, Danny, Aunt Sallie,Uncle Henry, and Uncle Sonk lived, for a time, with us. Theyalways felt welcomed and beloved. Aside from the elderly, myparents made a home, at different times, for Charlie McMullan,Edwin, Hammond, and Malvern Baker, the three sons of Papa'ssister Hessie Baker, who was widowed at an early age and had tobe helped. Papa and Mama were the ones who helped.Danny Reese lived with Uncle Charlie and Aunt Betty untilshe died in her eighties. She was blind in her old age for manyyears and was so tenderly cared for by Aunt Betty. They also tookcare of and raised Lucile, who was Uncle Horace's daughter. Hermother died at Lucile's birth, so Danny cared for her. She wasalways treated like one of the family. No difference shownbetween her and the other children. She was married in theirhome. I spent many happy visits with them. I often think of thegood times with my cousins, Mary Cecil, Sallie, Lucile, Neil,Dudley, and George. What a wonderful childhood we had. Wedidn't have TV or radio, disturbing world news crept in veryslowly. We were happy in our own small world."Little Women""The Cooks"My grandfather, Judge Philip Cook, was married first toMeliora Meriwether in 1848. They had two children, Susie andBettie. They lived in Tricom, Alabama, near Benton, and movedto Hayneville. Meliora died when these girls were quite young,and in 1858 Judge Cook married Mary Herbert, who was ourmaternal grandmother, later called Danmay by the grand-children. Grandpa was Judge of Circuit Court in Hayneville formany years.From this union were born Sallie, my mother, and Jody.469Grandpa died when they were very young and Danmay raised thefour girls. Their life always reminded me of the book, "LittleWomen." They were a devoted family and helped each other. Theywere devout Episcopalians and attended St.Andrews Church inHayneville.Susie and Bettie went to school in Virginia, a convent, whereSusie was converted to Catholicism. When they finished schoolSusie taught in Hayneville and Bettie taught Piano. Bettie was avery accomplished pianist and possessed a lovely soprano voice.She taught and performed musically until she was an old lady. Shewas my first piano teacher. Susie and Bettie helped with thefinancial difficulties of the little family until Sallie and Jodygrew up. Susie married Marvin Williamson and died bearing herfirst child, who died also.Bettie married Dr. John Albert Pritchett, a very fine physicianwho practiced in Hayneville many years. He was educated at theUniversity of Virginia, and his medical papers were noted andquoted by the medical profession, even in England. Theirchildren were Bessie Inge, later called Betty or Bebe, and JohnAlbert (often called Jack). Their first child had died in infancy.Dr. Pritchett died in 1898 and Bettie, whom we called Sister,supported these two children, having a little insurance, her home,and her teaching. She was a wonderful woman, pretty, attractive,so cultured and so intelligent. She was such an addition to thesocial life in our town with her music and her acting ability. Shesent both of her children to college. She died in 1918."Jodv. And Mv Brother Charlie"Jody married Charlie McMullan of Greenville, Alabama. Shedied a year later, three days after bearing a son, Charlie. In themeantime Sallie had married my father, Dudley Reese; so theytook the baby and raised him to manhood. Danmay lived with us,and Charlie called her Mama and our mother "Mama Sallie": andhe called Papa "Papa." He was like our own brother and we neverknew the difference. His own father never did anything for him,fatherly or financially. Papa cared for him as he did the rest ofus. We were a very happy family.When Charlie was twelve years old, Danmay died. Old Charliecame to the funeral. Little Charlie was devastated with grief, andthree days after the funeral, Old Charlie borrowed Papa's horseand buggy to take the little boy for a ride. Instead, he took him tothe train station in Letohatchee, where he boarded the Greenvilletrain with a struggling, screaming little boy, sat in the Negrocoach, and took him to Greenville, and all without one word t9470my parents. Of course, we were all broken hearted over thekidnapping, but nothing could be done, as he was nol legallyadopted. I well remember my grief stricken mother losing herchild and her mother.Well, two weeks passed and in Greenville Charlie tried to makethe best of it. But he made his own plans. The young people in thevillage would go to the depot at train time for the excitement ofthe train passing by. One day Charlie was allowed to go withthem. As the train was leaving, he hopped on the last car and leftGreenville forever. He had no money, but the conductor recog-nized the little screaming boy of two weeks earlier and allowedhim to ride free. When he reached Letohatchee, Mr. Rogers, theticket agent, sent him to Hayneville by a Negro, on a mule. OldCharlie wired Mr. Rogers to stop him, and Mr. Rogers replied, "Goto Hell."At our house it was midnight and we were all asleep, when mymother heard foot steps on the back porch stairs. She called,"Charlie, Charlie," and he answered, "I'm coming, Mama Sallie,"and in he came and we all gathered around him, laughing andcrying. Our brother was home again. He had presents in hispockets for us all. Chewing gum that he took as his wages at thestore. And that is the story of "Our Brother Charlie.""Aunt Jo""Aunt Jo," Mrs. Green, was Grandpa's sister. She lived withSister during her last years. She caught fire standing in front ofan open grate and died from the terrible burns. She had one son."Mamma And Papa"Sallie and Dudley Reese married in St. Andrews Church inHayneville, April 8, 1885. My father was a good man. When I saygood, I mean all the virtues that word implies. He was honest, hewas moral. He was courageous, yet gentle, religious but under-standing of others of a different faith. He was an elder in thePresbyterian Church over fifty years. I don't think he everuttered a profane word. I remember he would say "Doggone it". Hewas a good man.Sallie, my mother, was the gentlest, most patient person I haveever known. The mother of nine children, I have heard her saymany times, she was never happier than when she had a baby inher arms. She had so many friends, of whom she was the favorite.Everybody, black and white, loved "Miss Sallie." She enjoyed471company and our dining table was always set with an extra platefor an unexpected guest. She had no formal education, butthrough study and reading good literature, and her backgroundof breeding and refinement, she was a woman of great beauty andculture. She had a tiny figure and wore a number 2 shoe. She hadbeautiful teeth, big gray eyes, and soft curly shiny brown hair.She always wore a flower or a ribbon in her hair.My father was educated at Auburn Institute. They weremarried when she was 19, he a few years older. They were alwayssweethearts (though she always called him "Mr. Reese" or by someendearing name, but never Dudley).I am sure they had their little differences, but always inprivate. I can truthfully say I never heard them quarrel. After shedied my father never went out with another woman. He was sogentle and patient with his little motherless children and did hisbest to be father and mother to us all.So many people loved my mother. She did so much in her shortlife, especially for the sick and the Darkies on the plantation.When she died on Christmas night, 1908, at age 43, the coloredmen on the plantation asked to dig her grave. They did, and stoodwith the grieving family while their "Miss Sallie" was loweredinto the earth. Papa died in Port Arthur in 1942. Our parents areburied in "The Pines" cemetery in Hayneville. Danmay, littleEdwin, and Thomas Sidney are buried in the same plot. LittleMary is in the Old Cemetery.These stories were written by my father's sister, SusieHammond Reese Kennedy. She always wanted them published,and I take great pleasure and pride in including them in thisbook.472

Description of the Coat-of-Arms.
This coat of arms is quartered, combining the North and South Welsh house of Rhys.
The upper right quarter: Blue, with silver cross and crescents, indicating they were religious people. Blue is symbolic of that fidelity and devotion to duty, always characteristic of the royal tribes of Wales.
The upper left quarter: White, with crimson chevron and two ravens, with the gold letter R for Rhys.
Cambrian history says:" The Ravens rejoice when blood is hastening, when war doth rage," showing they were distinguished warriors.
The lower right quarter: Sable, with crimson chevron, and three gold sheaves of wheat; indicating they were farming people and possessed large landed estates.
Lower left quarter: Purple, with a white Talbot (Dalmatian Dog) rampant, on the scent, ready for the fray; showing they were brave, gallant soldiers. The crimson, blue and purple were the royal colors.
The crest top: A cubit arm vested, the hand grasping five ears of wheat slipped.
The two latin mottoes--crest bottom: Spes melloris aevi("Hope for a better age.") Seps tutissima oeolis( "The safest hope is Heaven".
Powell's Cambrian History, and Robert Southey's poem "Madoc in Wales," give an interesting account of the Rhys family in Wales.
