    Opinions & Folklore are appreciated but send Proof if you expect me to change my records.

    My  grand-daddy always called grandma his little 5'2" indian squaw and spoke of his mother being part indian as well. He spoke of his mother sitting in the fields digging up roots and picking herbs to fill her apron and that she smoked a pipe but his daddy's mother also smoked a pipe, taught them how to make pop corn, and then that one's mother helped the indians make medicine. His line has some fascinating stories throughout Rhode Island  1600s history and into New York Indian Country before migrating into Ohio and Kentucky by 1800.  Daddy's great great great grandmother descended from the line of Tefft families involved with King Phillip, an indian, who hanged Joshua Tefft and the Parker families involved with indians kidnapping a Cindy Parker who became the bride of an Indian Chief having his son Quanna Parker. 

    I found Alexander and William Cochran in 1790 in Pennsylvania and then in 1810 Ohio where Jacob was born in 1822. He was a miner and a farmer and went to California to search for gold, returned and moved his family to Iowa Territory.  His second wife Clora Jane Miller said she was born in Illinoy.........to Mary Clara Parker and James Miller. There are stories of Jacob Cochran's grandparents helping the indians in Ohio and starting a school. 

     In 1800 Kentucky I found records of Isaac Coonfield, who's great great granddaughter Luella would later marry Frank Cochran. Isaac war born about 1770 in Pennsylvania to a Dutch, Christopher Confeldt. It is not known how many sons Christopher had but suspect one was John as I found him listed near Isaac, then Isaac named a son John and a son Isaac Jr. in 1808.  The Coonfields were still in Kentucky census in 1820 but in 1830 found in Indiana.  In 1856 Isaac Jr. bought land in Arkansas and had a son Benjamin Wylie Coonfield.  Isaac had married Lydia Epperson of Kentucky and she had Ben and died  so Isaac married her sister Mary Epperson.  Ben married Martha Frances Young of Indiana and her family had come from Kentucky. Martha named a son Benjamin Wallace "Wally" Coonfield and he married Lattie Cedonia Little of Kentucky, while in Arkansas.

    Most of these men served in the Civil War.  I have Ben Coonfield's registration and Lattie's father's, John Little, and also Jacob Cochran  I have found a land deed where John Little took a homestead in 1900 Arkansas and do not know why he left Kentucky but in 1910 his father in law Abraham Crigler had followed them.  John's father Hiram Little had moved to Texas and married a young 14 yr old Rebecca and started a second family.

    My mother's lineage goes back to the Mayflower to Edward Doty, since his descendant married an Anderson in North Carolina, where I then researched Anderson, Bozeman, Stephens, Fann, Stone, McClain, Moon as they journeyed into Alabama Territory by 1820.  Elizabeth Moon married Charles McClain in the 1700s Virginia and migrated into Spartanburg SC by 1790-1800 where she had Josiah.  Josiah is found in Cobb County GA.

    In Virginia and Maryland 1600s the Bozemans were given more land by the King of England when they "transported" new families into America and there is a story of one of the Bozemans there being the son of an Indian Princess.  In 1790 I began to find them in North Carolina and in South Carolina as a few of the colonies began to develop amongst many indian tribes which are very interesting to read about.  Peter Bozeman was born about 1758 to Mordecai and "wife" and Peter's brother married a full blood and migrated into Mississippi in 1823 while Peter moved his family to Hope Hull, where we found his son Jesse's tombstone born 1793.

     

      So while studying the Carolinas I also found my granddaddy's ancestor, Captain George Little in Union County SC who moved to Kentucky in 1802.  His grandson Hiram Little married Catherine Wright, a daughter of Catherine Weatherford, whom I traced into Charlotte Virginia records, to a Patsy Weatherford found in 1810 with three daughters.  Patsy must have been the former wife of Charles Weatherford who moved into Wetumpka, Alabama and married Sehoy, the Creek Indian mother of Chief Red Eagle.  Picketts History of the Creeks along the Alabama River shares much detail about the Weatherfords. 

    Grandpa Hiram Little's nephew, Lucius Powhatan Little had a daughter, Laura, who did extensive family research and tried to connect us to a daughter of Chief Powhatan of Virginia, so we can suspect that Patsy Weatherford was of Indian Blood. 

     There is more written about the father of Charles Weatherford, Martin.  Martin left Virginia and was a loyalist, on the side of the British, and received a lot of land in Georgia, where it is written that he was a wealthy planter who employed indians to work his crops, but was so very outspoken for the British, that the State of Georgia kicked him out and he moved to the Bahamas. 

    It is just hard to imagine that one of my daddys grandfathers was here in Alabama in 1800 so close to my mother's ancestors. After the American Revolution, there was a land office in Georgia, able to sell the new lands available in Alabama Territory and many of her ancestors did just that, since the lands were so good for planting crops like cotton and corn.  They hauled their crops to Dexter Avenue to sell, back when it was a nasty bumpy dirt road. 

    The crops could be shipped out by steamboats along the Alabama River and then the Train Station was developed.  Her daddy Cecil Carter was adopted around 1905, by the unknown Carter in Macon Georgia.  His mother Annie Lou Stone had married his father William Franklin Fenn in 1893, divorced about 1901, married a Carter and then a Dasher, but probably never returned to Alabama. Annie Lou's great grandfather was Michael Stone of Maryland 1700s and I tried to connect him to Thomas Stone who signed the Declaration of Independence but have not been able to trace that far back. However I was able to trace the Fenn family back to Virginia where John Fann married a Mary Stone in 1698. 

     

    My Brooks's line also has Stone, a  MaryCatherine  Stone in Tennessee, who married John Baptist Bond about 1800.  She had a daughter Caroline Bond who married several times, but her daughter Roxanna is the one who married John Brooks in 1860. Roxanna's son John married Annie Clark Ballard, and these women have a long history from the Carolinas into Tennessee about 1800, where many indian tribes existed.  There are many grandmothers included, with names only known as Kezziah or Gracey, that we may never know anything about. There was one named Hester Ward and while I do not find the parents' names I do know there was a famous indian called Nannie Ward and wonder if there was any connection.  Annie's son James Edgar Brooks would be related to all of these found in  early Tennessee history, but his family moved to Montgomery Alabama with the work on the railroad and he married Susie Mae Cooper in 1923.   Susie's families also had come out of South Carolina, some settling in Chambers County and some in Montgomery but her granny Mary Josephine Hereford Carter was born in Virginia in 1844.  Mary was the second wife of Thomas Randolph Carter and had only one child, Sarah Elizabeth Carter who married Levi Benjamin Cooper. Levi worked on the Carter farm and pushed the little girl on the swing at times and fell in love.  Levi and his sons are buried at Whitehall.  Levi's parents were born in Chambers County, Charner P. Cooper and Sarah F. Lee but their parents were from South Carolina also.  Thomas Carter was born in 1820 SC to John Wise Carter and unknown wife ( here we go again ) and the first wife of Thomas was Lacy Bozeman of Hope Hull.  Often I have wondered if Thomas was somehow kin to my grandfather Cecil Carter. 

    James Brooks Jr. married Mary Ella Thornton and had Charlie.  Mary's grandmother Mary Angeline Partridge was an indian out of Georgia, according to Lorraine "Tutor" and her daughter Sue Carol Bozeman.

    When I go back and study those old records, I find many of our families residing very close to several famous indian names, like my Cochrans living near Will Rogers in Rogers County Oklahoma and his ancestors Rogers living by my Peter Bozeman in Darlington long before that.  Even found Sequoyah's ancestors, Gist, Guist, Guess in South Carolina as well, along with McQueen, Hildebrand, McGillvary, McIntosh, and many others who married an indian bride. 

    When my GG grandmother Lorena Bozeman's "Grandma Sellers" migrated to Alabama, there was a connection to Nathan Sellers who married one of the indian Schrimpshire girls and another Schrimpshire girl married Chief Dennis Bushyhead and another Schrimpshire girl was the mother of Will Rogers, all quite fascinating history.  Our grandma Lavinia Sellers married Seaborn Anderson in Montgomery Alabama and his great great grandfather Anderson is listed as full blood Cherokee on the Latter Day Saints research page.  Other researchers online are looking into the indian heritage of the Sellers family of North Carolina as well.  Lavinia Janes' daughter Nancy Jane Anderson married Peter Edward Bozeman in Dublin and had John Thomas Bozeman in 1865, and John married Alice Lorena Stephens.  The Stephens great grandfather had married a full blood Cherokee in the Carolinas during his service with the American Revolution and then migrated into Dublin.  There were several Stephens plantations found in Dublin and Ramer in the 1800s.  John and Alice had Lorena Emma Bozeman in 1890, my great granny.  Lorena was a very special, gifted, Christian lady.  She could touch, pray and heal those in need.  My grand-daddy once talked about a man hurt and bleeding from a car accident, and grand-daddy carried the man to Lorena, who touched the man and prayed for him, and my daddy witnessed the healing, the bleeding stopped immediately.  There was a day when mom was about 20 and found a lump in her chest that needed surgery,and Lorena said show me, so she placed a hand on her chest and prayed, and the surgeon said the lump came out benign and I do believe she helped .  There were many special moments in our lives, and those with premonitions who helped many, and my daddys sister Irma being born with a veil over her face was an amazing story.  The doctor removed it and it came right back, then he removed it again and it came back, but the third veil was taken by Irma's mother and placed in the Family Bible, where it still remains.  Whenever something was wrong, the veil would "sweat". 

     

    I have gathered stories and letters and names to get this family tree growing, and then collected census records, death certificates, marriage licenses, military documents, and other things to verify the branches and continue to add to it every so often.  Some send me emails after reading the family tree on rootsweb.com and let me know how they connect to us and share whatever stories they have found.  One was about my grandpa Cecil Carter's sister, Carolyn / Carrie Fenn who married an indian named Ben Johnson and moved to Oklahoma.  Ben had signed an affidavit stating his mother America Mills was born a full blood indian in Alabama, but his daddy Nathaniel Johnson would not allow them to register on the indian rolls.  Mills is an important name in my Stephens line as well.  However, Johnson, sometimes spelled as Johnston, is also in my son in law's lineage in Macon County.  Nathaniel's line was back to a David Johnston married to Mary Macon, of the family this county was named after. 

     In my dad's mothers line there is Holtville Community or Town named after one of his grandfathers, where James H. Baxley married Louisa Miranda Holt in Elmore County and we found their graves at Coosa River Primitive Church by an elder J. Holt born 1806 who must have been her father.Miranda's daughter Ella Olivia Baxley married  L. W. Hood and had Bessie Mae Hood who married Milton Eligah Thornton.  Bessie's daughters were Mary Ella Brooks, Tutor Lorraine Jeffcoat and Olivia Angeline Cox.  There is a Glenda Baxley who emailed me with her findings on James at Coosa River and sent me his Civil War papers. 

     Clarence Bearden is the son of  Aunt Sissy Elizabeth Brooks and sent me a package of records found on the Brooks side, including some beautiful pictures. His article and research of the cemetery at Hope Hull is posted online at the Alabama Cemetery Preservation page.  That page has other information that a Benjamin Lewis once owned that plantation around 1820 and it was sold a couple of times before Peter Bozeman arrived.  I also speculate that Benjamin Lewis or his son married one of the daughters of Peter Bozeman.  Most of these people are listed in the South Carolina Archives, some in North Carolina in the 1700s but then again in Montgomery Alabama in the 1820s and 1830s.  Peter died in 1829 and his estate sale lists many of these people attending.  In 1848 Peter's son William died and his articles are also found in the Montgomery Archives, estate sale, and writ of dower for the widow. The marriage licenses of William's children are also found, including his son Peter Edward Bozeman born 1834, served in the Civil War and married Nancy Jane Anderson. 

     Elisha Anderson's will is found in 1834 Montgomery. 

     So many of these elders are found in the DAR records where they were in the American Revolution, that it will take forever to get it all organized, and am greatful that cousin Jimmy Ray Bozeman's daughter joined the DAR based on Peter Bozeman's record.  Jimmy joined the Sons of the Revolution and now cousin Hazel Bozeman has joined the DAR. I find it so rewarding meeting these new cousins, Hazel met us at Dublin where we found the grave of Peter Edward Bozeman and his daughter in law Alice Lorena.  Hazel is the daughter of  Uncle Bob Bozeman and we met cousin Elizabeth, the granddaughter of Ethel Mae Bozeman Gibson.  Ethel's son Buster said that my grandpa Charlie McClain had no tombstone ever at Dublin's Church of Christ, which seems odd since he served in WW1.  Charlie's daddy was Josiah Marion McClain of Georgia who served in the Civil War, got wounded and forgot that he had a wife and children in Georgia so he married Elizabeth Broadway of Dublin and had Charlie.  Elizabeth was born in 1853 to Mary Stephens and Abner Broadway - ironic since Charlie married Lorena Bozeman and her mother was also a Stephens.  When Josiah McClain died, his widow filed for his military pension and when Peter Edward Bozeman died, his widow also filed for a pension and it was signed by Peter's Uncle John Hill.

     
    So much to do and so little time.

    Genealogy of Kathy and Charles Brooks
      Our ancestors met before the Civil War. They came together in Montgomery sharing cotton plantations in the fields you now see when passing through Montgomery on I-65. Yet after the war this land was worthless, being destroyed as Wilsons Raiders burned a path through the state but these families struggled to revive as much as they could. I found an old cemetery with some tombstones dating back to 1793 on this property and then tried to trace their descendants across town. In 1900 I find them again in downtown Montgomery near the train station as many others had migrated into our lineage and they once again worked together. In fact my mother in law in 1950 had taken in the widow of my great grandfather when she had no place to go.  My husband's cousin Sue Carol on his mother's side married one of my mother's Bozeman Cousins and his father's great grandpa Thomas Carter was once married to another of our Bozeman Cousins in Hope Hull.   Our families were always close, we just did not realize how very close.  My father came from Kansas and married my mom in Montgomery in 1951, while he was stationed at Maxwell AFB after injuries from being shot in the Korean War - his lineage was partly in Pennsylvania and South Carolina before migrating into Kentucky and Ohio and then on into the midwest.  Together we have dozens of grandfathers in the American Revolution and the Civil War.

Obviously he got the land in Hope Hull Alabama but I have not found any type of Land Deed until this item shows that Peter did in fact own land in Alabama. Now we need to go back and find the followup to this document to see when the land was sold and to whom.

John was the son of Catherine Wright and Hiram Lucius Little. Catherine Wright's mother was Catherine Weatherford, a daughter of Charles according to the Virginia records online. Researching Charlotte Virginia, I found a young Charles Weatherford who could have been her brother and then a Patsy Weatherford who might have been her mother. Family legend is that John's family refused a land allotment in Indian nation Oklahoma, but it is a mystery as to why he chose to move to Arkansas.

      Born 1866 in Dublin Alabama, married Alice Stephens and had my great granny, Lorena Emma Bozeman - John was the son of Nancy Jane Anderson and Peter Edward Bozeman. His grandparents were Martha Hill and William Henry Bozeman who migrated from Darlington South Carolina about 1826. The Andersons and Bozemans lived next to each other in Hope Hull 1830 with Peter Edward being born in 1834. When William died, Martha Hill Bozeman moved to Dublin near her brother John Hill, who created the Hills Chapel School and Church........ After the Civil War Peter and Nancy bought land in Ramer/ Dublin area along the Meriweather Trail close to John Hill. John Hill donated land for their family cemetery which I visited, and he donated land for the Hills Chapel Church and another cemetery across from it where John T Bozeman is buried.

    • WWI Charles McClain (36 KB)
      his birth date is wrong, should be 1886 but it shows his wife as Lorena Bozeman. Charles was the son of Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain's who's families migrated from South Carolina into Georgia, then Alabama. Josiah descends from Elizabeth Moon and Charles McClain of 1750s Virginia. Elizabeth Moon had named a son Josiah and his son James had married an indian woman called Anna - Anna had a son named Josiah. I have seen three different dates of birth for grandpa Charlie but they had very little education, some could not read nor write at all, so the numbers are often mixed up. His mother Elizabeth was the daughter of Mary Stephens and Abner Broadway, and when Josiah died about 1897, she remarried to John Gardner of Dublin. Elizabeth and John and Charlie are found on the 1900 census, then again in 1910 with Lorena.

    • DAR Jesse Bozeman (10 KB)
      Unknown connection but our Peter named a son Jesse so this could be a brother to our Peter in Darlington - there was a Jesse living two doors away from Peter in 1800 Darlington census. Peter's son was named Jesse M Bozeman and I can only suppose that M was for Mordecai and then can suppose it is possible that was also Peter's father's name.......now go back to the Jesse who served in the American Revolution and wonder if his middle initial was also M - could he have really been Peter's father living so close to him in 1800.............we may never know.
