- Miss Lizzie Cooper Mitchell, Eufaula, Ala., 1898 (61 KB)
Lizzie was born in 1868, and soon afterward her parents died. They are in these notes elsewhere. She was raised by relatives, and schooled in Va. She married John Calvin West in Eufaula, Ala. in 1899, but died just eight months later. West remarried, but retained Lizzie's keepsakes, and they came down in his family to Steve Helderman, his great grandson, who kindly gave them to me in June, 2000. They include her pictures, two bibles (one her mother's), two autograph books replete with adoring notes, and some small jewelry including a tiny gold ring which she may have had from her mother. Her obituary notes " Highly educated, a superior artist in china decoration and painting, skilled in embroidery, unexcelled as a housekeeper, popular, a leader in society and loved by all who knew her for her many endearing qualities of heart and mind, she was peculiarly well fitted to play well her part in this life." She is buried, I believe, in Columbus, Ga. I am looking for a closer relative than I am to have her belongings. She seems a lovely young woman, and a great loss to those who knew her over a hundred years ago.

This photo was made in the Pecan Street home. Grace was the youngest of a large family.

- Gloria Dei (Old Swedes') Church, 1698-1700 (25 KB)
Gloria Dei Church (the Old Swedes') was built between 1698 - 1700 and is the oldest church in Pennsylvania. The Swedes preceded the English to this part of America, arriving here in 1646. For nearly two centuries, this church was a mission of the Church of Sweden. As Swedes were absorbed into the general American population, Gloria Dei became English speaking and was admitted into the Episcopal church in 1845. The Church is owned and maintained by its congregation and contains important historic relics and artifacts.Revolutionary War patriots John Hansen, president of the Continental Congress under theArticles of Confederation, John Morton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and five ofGeneral Washington's officers rest in the churchyard burial ground. (Information courtesy of http://www.nps.gov/gldeand Eric Knight)Peter Gunnarsson Rambo lies under the altar, where he was buried about 1699.

The origin of Darlington's strange name has not been traced, but most think his mother was Nancy Darlington. Others suggest he was named for a prominent preacher. He was called Darling, and died in Parker County, Texas, perhaps at the hand of Indians, in about 1860.

- Allegedly Colonel John Floyd, 1750-1783 (58 KB)
John Floyd was an early surveyor, revolutionary soldier, Indian fighter, captain of the revolutionary war privateer "Phoenix," and a founder of Kentucky. He was killed by Shawnee Indians in 1783 near present day Louisville. His son and grandson became Virginia governors. A nephew, Charles Floyd, died on the Lewis and Clark expedition. They were a family of the early frontier. Some note that this picture from a crayon drawing may not be Floyd, but "The Tuley Family Memoirs: A Historical, Biographical and Genealogical Story of the TULEYS and the FLOYD FAMILY Connection in Virginia, Kentucky and Indiana" by William Floyd Tuley, 1906, attributes this sketch to "an old crayon owned by Col. R. T. Durrett of Louisville, the only picture existant of Floyd." The crayon is now in the Filson Club, Louisville. It may well be that it is of Colonel Floyd's son Governor Floyd, born in 1783. It should be compared to his portrait taken (I think) when he was governor. They are much the same. On the other hand, who can dispute this is Colonel Floyd? This copy was in my grandfather's collections, and in mine since 1957.

- Captain Jacob Phinizy, Oglethorpe Rifles, abt 1861 (87 KB)
Jacob was a very close friend and business partner of his first cousin, Pat Stevens, born just a few weeks before Jacob in October 1823. They were raised to maturity together by the lovely Matilda Stewart Phinizy, and it was together in the 50s they bought land in in Bolivar Co., Mississippi, on the banks of the river, during the settling and clearing of the vast Yazoo tract. They endured flood after flood and eventually had to put the landup for sale about 1861 at the beginning of the war. Pat was elected to the Georgia House, and Jacob joined the Army, where in 1862 he was killed at the Second Manassas on the 30th August, leading the Oglethorpe Rifles of the 8th Georgians. We have his letters home to Pat. General Beauregard saluted the Regiment for their conduct that day. The captain rests on the battlefield beneath the rolling hills to this day. (This photo owes to the courtesy of Joan Doughty, another remarkable Phinizy researcher, 2001.)

Witnesses had to sign that they had received their fees for testifying in court. Darling could write, Allen could not and I believe the same person signed for Thomas and John."
