Autobiographical note.5 The Great Depression- by Savonne Giddens, 5/23/1992

 

The Depression was when you only had clabbered milk for supper, and you got out early in the morning to gather lamb's quarters

for dinner. Dinner was the noon meal- lamb's quarter is a weed. You cook it like turnip greens. Most of the time this was eaten wtih water cornbread. Depression was when the whole family pulled bowls cotton for 35 cents a hundred pounds of cotton. You coasted down all hills to save gas. It was having a coal oil lamp, and buying the oil in you own tin can, putting a potato in the spout for a stopper, cooking on an old wood stove that was missing one leg and waas propped up with bricks. Making all the bed sheets, shirts, and underwear for the entire family out of feed sacks. Little boys pants out of the backs of their dad's old worn-out pants legs. Making towels out of worn-out cotton sacks, and ironing on those old sad irons. Boy, that was sure a good name for them.

Men wore bib overhauls to church and ties. Woman rolled their hair on rags. Lye soap was shampoo.

And everyone has heard about out houses and Sears-Roebuck catalogs. Syrup buckets for lunch boxes, cold biscuits, walk three miles to school...Well, it happened. Then, after that came stupidity. Ask me about that.

Fact: Two Little Children. TWO LITTLE CHILDREN Sung by: Mrs. Russell Vaughan Recorded in Memphis, TN Click here to listen to the original recording <vaughantwo1252.mp3> (Mrs. Vaughan: This is one of my favorites. It's kind of sad, but my children always liked it, and I liked it too. The name of it is, 'Two Little Children'.) Two little children, a boy and a girl, Sat by an old church door. The girl's little hands were as brown as the curls That played on the dress that she wore. The boy's coat was faded, and hatless his head, And the tears shone in each little eye. Why don't you run home to your Mama? I said, And this was the maiden's reply: Mama's in Heaven; they took her away, Left Jim and I alone. We came here to sleep at the close of the day, For we have no Mama nor home. Papa got lost out at sea long ago, And we waited all night on the shore, But he was the lifesaving captain, you know, And he never came back anymore. Mama got sick; angels took her away. She's gone to that home of delight. 'The angels are coming, my darlings,' she said, 'Perhaps they will be here tonight.' Mama's in heaven; they took her away, Left Jim and I alone. We came here to sleep at the close of the day, For we have no Mama nor home. The sexton came early to ring the church bell, And he found them beneath the snow white. Together they died in the cold there alone, But their souls were with Mama that night. Also found in Brown, Vol. II, #150.

Biographical note: 2003, Greenville, TX.1 Our grandmother, whom the "Blue" Giddens' kids called, "Ma",

was a sweet-dispositioned person. I never heard her raise her voice.

"Ma' gave all her grandchildren a Christmas present, even though she would be called "low-income" nowadays. The boys got a sack of marbles, the girls, "paper-dolls", I think. That was a good Christmas in those days.

I have since lost all my marbles, but hope to find them all eventually.

Every once in a while I find one in the yard, and think of my grandmother.

They say she was red-headed and freckle-faced when she was young.

She weighed around 90 pounds when she was married, but grew to about twice that; and so have we all.

I loved going to her house when we lived in Sundown because she would always take time to talk to me. She was also a blessing to me when I was a teenager, and she lived with us briefly in Odessa. Janie Rogers said, My Grandma Giddens was in walking distance from my house nearly my entire growing up years in Sundown. There were so many cousins, but we were all special and loved by her. She let me help her cook, iron pillow cases when she took in ironing, and we would listen to the radio while she worked. We were always pumped to listen for the top 20 Country and Western songs. She was a tremendously strong and vibrant woman and always on mine and Butch's and Ted's side. Someone had to be because we were a handful to a very young mother! Only one granddad was alive when we were little. He was our Papa Giddens and we loved him fiercely. One of the best memories is when he and my dad and uncles rescued survivors after the tornado that destroyed the north end of Sundown. They kept bringing more and more people to the tiny house my grandparents owned. This rescue was after being sure all of us were safe in a storm cellar. My mom had our picture made for the grandparents' Christmas the last year he was alive. It was wrapped flat like a calendar. I will never forget how excited I was for them to open it. I knew they were going to be thrilled out of their minds because it was a picture of us. And you know.... they were..... They were our grandparents

Religion. Methodist.

FYI.4 In 1873 a post office opened; also in the 1870s the Savoy Male and Female College began operations and the Texas and Pacific Railway extended its tracks through the community. By that time Savoy had twenty-five businesses, including several cotton gins, four dry-goods stores, two steam gristmills, two hotels, and a hardware store. On the eve of World War Iqv Savoy had some twenty-seven businesses, including a bank and a weekly newspaper; by the end of World War IIqv it had thirteen businesses...

 

 

 

 

Maude married Mayes Elmer Giddens "M. E." [20559]2 [MRIN: 8669] on 15 Oct 1911 in Brownwood (Brown) TX.

 

6. Thomas Samuel Cox "Sam" [2], son of Jesse Thomas Cox "Tom" [1] and Amanda Theresa Sanders of Albany, TX [19], was born on 22 May 1883 in TX Llano County, Tow Valley, died on 19 Dec 1960 in TX Taylor County, Abilene8 at age 77, and was buried on 21 Dec 1960 in TX Shackelford County, Albany.

Medical Notes: Parkinson's disease

Illness. When Papa Cox was about 55 he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. This caused his right hand to tremble, but did not progress worse than that.

FYI. Tow is on Farm Road 2241 and the western shore of Lake Buchanan, twenty miles northeast of Llano in northeastern Llano County. When William Tow arrived with his family in 1853, he named the nearby area in which he settled Tow Valley. The Handbook of Texas Online is a joint project of The General Libraries at the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas State Historical Association.

 

Llano County (I-15), in Central Texas, is bounded on the north by San Saba County, on the east by Burnet County, on the south by Gillespie County, and on the west by Mason County. Llano County was organized in 1856 after the Texas legislature formed the county from the Bexar District and Gillespie County. Communities in the county include Llano, the county seat (1990 population, 2,962), Kingsland (2,725), Horseshoe Bay (1,222 in Llano County, partly in Burnet County), and Sunrise Beach (497).

 

 

 

 

 

Occupation: : Stamford/Haskell, TX.1 Sam and Beetie Cox were sharecroppers. He also worked on the Swenson Ranch or SMS as a cowboy in his earlier years, I think.

Fact.1 "Papa" and "Grandmother" were 18th cousins because each had the same 19th great-grandparents, Alexander Fitzwalter, High Steward of Scotland who lived 1214-1283 in Scotland.

 

 

Census: 1890.

Census: 1900.

Census: 1910.

Census: 1920, TX MIlls, Goldthwaite.

Census: 1930, TX Shackelford County, Albany.

Memories of Sam COX: 2002, TX. Papa Cox, my grandfather, was a member of the First Baptist Church of Albany, TX, where he served as Sunday School Superintendent. My grandmother "Beetie" Cox served as Adult Sunday School teacher there for many years. They were strong Christians. Both of them prayed for me personally before they died, as I'm sure they prayed for all their grandchildren.

 

My best memory of Papa Cox is hearing him pray in church. He wept when he cried out to God.

 

Papa and Grandmother were share-croppers between Stamford and Haskell.

 

"Papa"'s dream was to build a rescure mission in Albany, a dream he was never able to realize.

 

 

Don Giddens, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Blanding, UT, 2002.

Kinship report: 2004, Greenville, TX.1 T. S. "Papa" Cox probably heard how many Kings and Queens his in-law Lindsays were kin to: but he probably never knew those to whom he could claim some kin-

Namely-

President Zachary Taylor* was his 3rd cousin twice removed,

CSA President Jefferson Davis was the husband of his 4th cousin,

Dr. Daniel Cocke, Physician to the Queen MAYBE his 5th great-grandfather -or- MAYBE the cousin of his 5th great-gandfather sent out ships that claimed much of the future America for the Queen.

Papa's sister-in-law was the granddaughter of the founder of Dallas, TX. ,John Neely Bryan; (this was the only tidbit of information we always bragged about when we were kids)

other than we were kin to Buck Jones (which we were not)

 

His 7th great-grandparents, William Armistead and Ann (Ellis) Armistead were the grandparents of TWO United States Presidents- the Harrisons, Benjamin and William Henry,

President William Henry Harrison was his 4th cousin,

President Benjamin Harrison was his 6th cousin.

 

Most importantly, the Coxes were strong, enthusiastic Christians.

 

*Zachary Taylor was his cousin as follows:

Thomas Samuel Cox (1883-1960) was the grandson of Josias Hardin Sanders (1829-ca 1865) son of Abby Robbins who married

Rev. John Sa(u)nders , a pioneer Baptist preacher of Georgia;

Josias Hardin Sa(u)nders was the great- grandson of

J. were nice about it, because they named their first son James Lafayette Jefferson Cox "Uncle Jim" after Amanda's brothers.

Letter: 13 Sep 1857, Atlanta, GA. Letter from James T. Giddens to his wife, Martha J. (Paul) Giddens

 

Atlanta, September 13, 1857

 

Dear wife, (in Athens, Clarke GA)

 

I received your letter this morning and it gave me very great pleasure to hear from you and the children, and particularly to hear that LURA was getting better.

I am well but rather low-spirited.

BALDWIN says that he has more men at present than he wants but that he will give me work soon. I want to go to MACON tomorrow morning, and then I will come back to Atlanta Tuesday morning, and if Mr. Baldwin has not given me work by that time I thought I would go west to Nashville; and if I do not get work on that word ,I will go and see HANK HOBBS and PETER JAMMERREE and see if I can't get some money out of them. It won't cost me anything hardly to go out there. And while I am doing nothing, I thought I had better go. The house is rented until Christmas. WALLACE got the check. Mrs. CANNON had a baby ( a boy) about a month old. Mrs. CALLAHAN had one while she was gone north, and she has been back since the middle of July. It is a girl, I think. I'm boarding

at SMITH's now and when I got here I found GILLON and family and THOLLIN

and family here. I shall write this by hand and if you get it by Monday evening

and if you want to write to me again before I go to Nashville you must mail it by Tuesday morning or if you send it Wednesday you must send it by hand as where you mail a letter there by morning I can't get it until the next morning

before I go to Nashville. I want to go to Chattanooga Wednesday night and then to Nashville. Tell my FATHER not to be mad at me, and I will try not to offend him the same way next time.

Tell MA FULLER and Mrs. WELCH howdy for me. Kiss LU for me. Tell WILLY

that he must be a good boy. And kiss DORA and TOBY for me. And next my love for you, dear wife. JAMES HASKELL has gone to Rushing, LA. Mrs. PRICHARD has gone to Griffin to live. HASSY REESE is married to a man by the name of BOOKER, a train hand on the road. Nothing more, but remain,

Your affectionate husband,

Facts: 2003.31 James Thomas Giddens' descendants have found few clues for his ancestors to positively identify them.

Suffice it to say there are several conjectures:

 

4. FRANCIS GIDEON Macon, Bibb County, GA Giddenses-

Our great-grandfather wrote a letter to his wife, Martha, in 1858 saying "Tell my father not to be mad at me..." The only Giddens there in 1860 was a Francis Giddens. We have no clues which one or who his father was.

James Thomas was married in Macon in 1846 to Lucy Hobbs, his first wife by whom he had a son, WIlliam L. Giddens. William L. Giddens, a railroad engineer, moved to Laredo. Later on ca 1920 our Thomas Solitaire Giddens moved to Laredo also, knowing his half-brother lived there.

The first Gideon in Bibb county was a Francis Gideon who sold land to a Needham Mims. A Mims Gideon is found later on in Bibb County, as is a Gideon Mims. Perhaps there is a relationship to these two families. (I think Gene Mims is a Needham Mims descendant.)

Anyway, James Thomas wrote a letter to his wife, Martha Paul Giddens, in Athens, Ga 1858 telling her to "tell my father not to be mad at me". The only Giddens censused in Athens in 1860 was a Francis Gideon b 1790. The several Francis Gideons were also descendants of James 1711.

George Giddens 1787 also has ties to Bibb County. His wife, Sarah Powell, had a uncle or father who moved to Macon also. Was he a son of Francis? Was James Thomas a son of Francis? Did James who was born in 1711 once live in Maryland?

 

5. Aunt Ella Mae Burnett thinks that James Thomas' father was the George b 1787, and that they were from CT as were the Gillons who were in-laws of James Thomas...or maybe they were descendants of George b 1609 and Jane antrobus Lawrence.

The same note that says George was a descendant of the John of Maryland says that they were from St. Albans, Herefordshire, England as were George born 1609 and Jane Antrobus Giddings. (Their descendants continue to spell their name Giddings).

 

 

1. GERMAN GIDEONS/Guithins

My grandfather, Mayes Elmer Giddens, and father both said they were Germans.

This does not mean they came from Germany, but probably came from Germany or England or Ireland to Maryland, then NC then GA. If so, they are among the Germans who fled from Europe from severe religious persecution to Maryland, NC, or SC. Among them were a Rev. George Adam Guithins (Giddens), pastor. These Germans were thrifty, industrious, and Loyalists. There is a Peter Gideon line who came to VA, but their George Gideon does not appear to be our's.

 

2. JAMES Giddens b 1711 Ireland d 1820 TN age 109

Many Giddens are his descendants. It is possible we may be also; and if so, probably through his son Richard or Roger of Jackson County, GA. My grandmother, Mrs. Mayes "Maude" Giddens, said that a Word Giddens came to see my grandfather from time to time, and that they were kin. Word was a grandchild of Richard Giddens who married Margaret Word. Could the James who was born in 1711 in Ireland be of German descent? Yes. The religious persecuted fled from one country to another.

 

3. George Giddens b 1787 NC of Sparta GA and Baltimore, Maryland. was censused in Canton, Madison, MS with Rimmers two years after James T. died. According to the 1830 GA Hancock census, he had one son James Thomas' age, and one daughter, Eliza's age. Our James Thomas Giddens was censused in 1850 Atlanta next door to a Rimmer. George was also in Atlanta that census. A Thomas Giddens left Hancock county and went to Alabama. George won land in GA Jackson county in a lottery. Roger, Francis, and WIlliam Giddens lived in Jackson County, GA, and were decendants of James 1711. The George Giddings of Sparta, Hancock, GA was a descendant of John Giddens of Maryland, who was a member of the House of Burgesses, a man of no small consequence in the history of Maryland. Some of John's descendants say he was Welsh or English.

And yes, he could have been Welsh and English.

The Maryland Guithins (Gittins, Gittings, Giddens) were named Basel, and Morris, and Benjamin through the generations. No other Giddens' lines have these names.

The Morris Giddens' go back many generations both in England and Wales. A Basel, Benjamin, and Morris Giddens all eventually moved to GA. Basel moved on to AL, and had a James Thomas. These lines can be traced back to the John of Maryland through Basel and Morris. Their descendants spell the name many ways including: Guithins, Gittings, Giddeons, Gethins, and Gathings. (Wallace Gideons of Odessa and LA was a descendant of the Gathings. They are all the same as they are descendants of Basel, Phillip, Morris, or John. Suffice it to say that the Maryland Giddens are either Germans or descendants of John and the long line of Morris (Maurice) Giddenses.

Emory, the county seat and largest town of Rains County, is at the junction of U.S. Highway 69 and State Highway 19, at the center of the county. When Rains County was organized in 1870 Springville became the county seat, and the name was changed to Emory in honor of Rains, who had played an important role in the authorization of the county.

Civil War: 1861, TX.51 1861 - According to his son, Jim Cox, Israel was alive at the beginning of the war, because he gave the family's best horses to his daughters' husbands (or husband's-to-be) when they went off to war. I found some of these men listed on the Wood County Gen Web site under the listings of men who'd mustered into the CSA from Wood County.

 

However, Dee Flacy wrote me that at the end of the war, Jim took his younger brother Samuel, and they "wandered the countryside, surviving as best they could." I do not know why this would have been, with grown siblings living nearby (if they'd stayed in Wood County) or Elizabeth's family nearby (if they'd returned to Tarrant County, where Dee says Israel & Elizabeth are buried). M y dad often told me that his grandfather Jim Cox had been raised by an uncle, El Nathan Hudgins, who was the founder of the First Methodist Church of Grapevine.

No I do not have much on the Sanders, I found Martha and her family in the 1860 census, her father was listed as J. H. Sanders 28yrs, TN and mother L. E.(Elizabeth Rushing), children M. J. (f) 6yrs, A. T. (f) 5yr, J. M.(m) 3yrs. 1870 census, Elizabeth is now married to a E.C. Hicks,

Children, Sanders, Martha 16, Amanda 14, James 12, Lafayett 9, Jefferson 7,.

My thought on J. H. is he may have died in the Civil War but have not proof, I have not been able to find any thing on him. I do know where Elizabeth's family lived in Van Zandt Co. and a family cemetery is. I also have found a Jefferson and Lafayett Sanders in the 1900 census in OK, I do know they lived in OK, Elizabeth is living with one of them and is quite old, she also divorced E. C. Hicks in Rains Co. TX in the 1880's.

My dads sister Vada is still living and is 87 yrs old and has a wonderful memory she has help me so much, she remembers Jefferson and Lafayette coming to visit them but can't remember where in Ok they lived their wife's or children.

I remember Martha I was about 8yrs old when she died and I remember her as a mean old woman that would not let us come in the room where the fire place was she would chase us out with the poker, some memory !!

I have a picture of her I will send you and also a picture of her, James and all the kids. I will send them separate. I will also send you the info I have on both families. It will take me awhile to send that I have a little info that I need to add.

How are you related to the Rabe's. Are you close to Salt Lake City?

Fact: 1863, RootsWeb.61 Moses Marion Sanders of Alcorn County, Mississippi, was a son of John Sanders and Aby Robins and a grandson of the Reverend Moses Sanders and Mary Hamilton. In a memoir written for his family about 1880 he stated:

 

"Our grandfather Moses Sanders was born in the early part of the 18th century. His life was spent in agriculture as a pursuit and theology as a profession being a Baptist preacher. Our grandfather John Robins was a merchant in Virginia. John Sanders, our father, was born in North Carolina March 2nd A.D. 1787. Our mother, Aby Richardson Sanders, daughter of John Robins, was born in Virginia August 18th 1796."

 

He then talks about his brothers and sisters and adds,

 

"Josiah Hardin lived in Texas, engaged in farming and stock raising, was a brave soldier and lost his life in defense of his country 1863."

 

Before John and Aby moved to Tishomingo County, Mississippi, they lived in McNairy County, Tennessee. Josiah Hardin married Elizabeth Rushing and they had five children, all born between before 1862 in Texas.

 

For these reasons, I believe Josiah Hardin was a son of John Sanders and Aby Robins, not James Sanders and Sarah Sell.

 

 

 

Death: 1863/1861?, CSA.62 "Josiah Hardin lived in Texas, engaged in farming and stock raising, was a brave soldier and lost his life in defense of his country 1863."

 

1861 is more likely. We need to look up the muster rolls on microfilm at one of the large libraries. DLG 2006

 

 

Battle of Round Mountain

On November 19, 1861, the Confederate troops pursued the Unionist Indians to Round Mountain, but they ran headlong into a line of resistance that was nearly twelve hundred men long; the volley from the Creek soldiers cut down several of the unwary Confederates who then retreated. The Creek forces, led by Creek war chiefs Billy Bowlegs, John Chupco, Halleck Tuskenugge and Little Captain, had formed a defensive line to protect the women, children, the elderly and the livestock of Opothle Yahola's band. [144] Cooper reinforced his troops and again attacked the renegades with the full force of the combined armies of the Confederacy. Drew's forces had not yet decided commit to this action. The battle became quite heavy until darkness fell upon the combatants, forcing both sides to break off the engagement. [145] Cooper's force was defeated in the battle, losing nearly twenty men in the engagement; in his inflated reports to military authorities, he reported the loyal Indians losses to be 110 killed and wounded.

Military: 1863, Ft. Washita 2 OK Indian Territory.59 The place he may have died if he was the J. H. Sanders.

 

Late 1863 Indian Territory

 

Little is known about the activities of the two battalions prior to December, 1863. In September 1863, while stationed in the Indian Territory, Lt. Colonel Showalter's Battalion apparently engaged hostile Indians in north Texas....

 

DG' notes

 

If Josiah died in 1863 as said and he was in the 4th Calvary as stated then, he did not participate in other battles of Baird's AZ where they

 

..massacred a USA Negro battalion against orders ( they were to take as many prisoners as possible but took only a handful.

...then some of the Showalter's men left destitute without supplies wandered in Cooke County living off the land, and scavenging what they could. These men has to be rounded up by another regiment.

 

 

 

, and 30 November 1863 the battalion was ordered to report to Brigadier General H. E. McCullouch at Bonham, Texas.

 

 

 

On December 15, 1863, the regiment was ordered to consolidate once again in the region of San Antonio, in response to the threat of a Union sea-borne invasion. The regiment was to serve in a command called "The Cavalry of the West," under the command of Colonel John Salmon Ford (popularly known as "R.I.P." Ford due to his habit, when filling out death certificates, of adding the abbreviation "R.I.P."...for "Rest in Peace"... after the names of those men under his command who had "gone to meet their maker"). However, this consolidation did not apparently happen at that time, because although Baird's Battalion was apparently with Ford at San Antonio as of February 5, Showalter's Battalion apparently did not join the rest of the regiment until March 31, 1864.31

 

 

 

CSA: 1863, Ft. Washita, Indian Territory 1.1 The J. H. Sanders censused in Ellis County in 1860 well might be our Josiah Hardin Sanders.

 

The following soldier appears to be the same person ESPECIALLY since

Baird's AZ Regiment did recruit in Ellis County. A picture is attached of the AZ unit in Ellis County in 1864 along with new recruits. So, they had already been in battle in North Texas and the Indian Territory. Josiah must have been killed before the picture if he died in 1863.

The 4th Regiment, AZ Brigade was never in Arizona! It fought from along the Red River, to San Antonio, to Brownsville.

Its founder, Spruce Baird, wanted to reatke AZ territory but never made it out of Texas and the Oklahoma Territory.

Don Giddens 2006.

 

Josiah Hardins Sanders' brother reported that he died in the CSA in 1863. If that be the case, then he died before the picture was taken on previous excursions. Note the brief descriptions of the outfit in 1863.

 

The FOURTH TEXAS CAVALRY REGIMENT, ARIZONA BRIGADE was the brainchild of Spruce McCoy Baird, former attorney general of New Mexico Territory (U.S.) and an ardent secessionist who had accompanied the Confederate Army of New Mexico when it retreated back to Texas. Baird began to recruit troops for the recapture of Arizona, at first independently of the larger effort which John R. Baylor was organizing at Eagle Lake, Texas. However, by the end of 1862 Baird had moved his recruiting efforts to Eagle Lake, and his embryonic regiment became part of the Arizona Brigade.26

 

1863

 

The Fourth Regiment was organized in February 1863, with Spruce Baird himself commissioned as Colonel and placed in command of the regiment. Other field officers were Major Edward Riordan and Lt. Colonel Daniel Showalter.27

Lt. Colonel Showalter, who would later command the Fourth Regiment after Baird resigned in early 1864, was a California politician and ardent Southern sympathizer who had been captured and imprisoned by Union authorities in November 1861 while attempting to leave California on his way to join the Confederate army in Texas. Released from his enforced confinement at Fort Yuma after five months, Showalter made a second attempt to defect, this time successfully. Slipping through the Mexican state of Chihuahua, Showalter made his way to Texas, where he took a commission in the Fourth Regiment.28

Baird's recruiting efforts were never as successful as those of Baylor, and Baird was forced to move his recruiting efforts yet again in early 1863. He set up headquarters near the Pecos River, in far west Texas, and his recruiters (Josiah could have been a recruiter) signed up draft evaders, deserters, and other riff-raff who had drifted into the no-man's-land between Confederate Texas and Union-held New Mexico. Naturally, the discipline and quality of the regiment suffered as a result.29

The Fourth Regiment only took to the field in late 1863, due to the slowness with which its ranks were filled. The regiment was not assigned to a specific brigade or division for most of the war, but rather was used as a sort of "mobile reserve" force, to be moved wherever it was needed. And shortly after it took the field, it was apparently divided into two Battalions of five companies each.

 

Late 1863

 

One of these, under Lt. Colonel Showalter, was ordered to Fort Washita, Cherokee Nation, in the Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma), and the other, under Colonel Baird, was sent to Brazoria County, on the Texas Gulf Coast.30

 

The J. H Sanders was under Colonel Showalter, so he must have died when they had their battle(s) in or near Ft. Washita in late 1863 in Indian skirmishes -or- as happened to many CSA troops died of disease. An epidemic of measles hit Ft. Washita about then, and many died.

Military: 1863, TX.65 During the war Between the States and immediately following, the Comanches, now joined by their fierce kinsmen, the Kiowa, took captive many white women and children, killed large numbers of frontier people and drove the settlers back into Northern Texas.

 

Josiah Hardin lived in Texas engaged in farming and stock raising was a brave soldier and lost his life in defense of his country 1863.

 

 

Military: 1864, Camp San Fernando.66 Military post on San Fernando Creek, near this site. Guarded the lifeline of the Confederacy, the cotton road, export-import route that ran from the Sabine River in East Texas to the Rio Grande. Manned 1862 by 32nd Texas Calvary flying Bonnie Blue flag; in 1863, a banner lettered: "We fight for our rights". Temporarily occupied, November 1863, by Gen. H. P. Bee. In February 1864 a strong complement arrived under Col. J. S. (RIP) Ford. Col. Matt Nolan reported to Ford a victory over Federals under Capt. C. Balerio 50 miles southwest on Banquete. Winning troops were under Capt. Thomas Cater, Wm. Tate, Taylor, and A. J. Ware, plus home guard under Capt. Santiago Richardson. (Capt. Richard King, of King Ranch, also served in the home guard.) Col. Ford's "Cavalry of the West" included Maj. Felix A. Von Blucher, chief of staff; capts. H. C. Merritt and J. Littleton, commissaries; Col. Albert Walthersdorff, technician; Capt. W. G. M. Samuels, ordnance. On March 30, 1864, the Arizona companies of Lt. Col. Daniel Showalter reached Camp San Fernando. In April Col. Ford and Col. Santos Benavides attacked the Federals in the Rio Grande Valley. Cols. Nolan and B. F. Fry continued to watch over the cotton road and "keep an eye" on Corpus Christi.

Kinship: 2002, Blanding, UT.1 The reason I "connected" our Hardin Sanders to John and Abby

was because the descendants of Louisa "Jency" Sanders

who married Joseph Carter, have her as daughter of a John and Abby Sanders. The only John and Abby I have found as of 2003 were the ones censused in Tishomingo MS.

 

Censused

IN THE household of Louisa and Joseph Carter is a J. M. Sanders. Below him is a Hardin, evidently a SANDERS not a Carter since he is listed below J. M. Sanders.

From the Bible of Mary Atlanta Lindsey

 

Adam Linn Lindsey....

I am of Scotch descent. My mother was Irish, Peggy Linn. I was born in Trigg County, KY 4/8/1831.

My father moved to Lafayett County, MO in March of 1833. He settled in Benton County, near the county seat Warsaw

(which he named) on the Osage River. He was elected county judge of that county in 1835. He died (on the bench) in 1840.

Two years after his death, mother married Dr. John Morris and moved to Newton County, MO in the year 1843.

There I was principally raised. My mother died in Newton County, MO just ten years after my father's death.

My mother's people were of some prominence. Her cousin, Linn Boyd, was a representative in Congress, and once Speaker of the House.

Rev. Finis Ewing, another cousin, was one of the founder's of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.One of his brothers was a candidate for Governor of Missouri on the Know Nothing ticket. Bill Lindsey, one of my cousins, is a Representative in Congress at this time.

All of the Lindseys are Democrats and most of them are Baptists.

Both of my grandfathers were in the Revolutionary War. Grandfather Linn was wounded at the Battle of Cowpens. (So was his grandfather Lindsey.) I moved to Texas in the last days of 1858. Stopped at Decatur in Wise County, 3 January 1859. Served (in the Texas Rangers) until the War of 1862. Was at Flanangan's Ranch on the headwaters of the Leon River when I heard Lee had surrendered.

Came home and found Mary and the children in a destitute condition.

Going back to 1848. I was married to Mary Wormington, October 26, 1848, and settled down on a little farm of 80 acres, went to work, and accumulated property fast until 1852. In partnership with my brother, Felix, I engaged in the Mercantile business. Sold goods two years, quit the goods business, and went on a gold hunt in 1855. Spent all I had, traveled four long months. Came home a poorer and wiser man.

I am now living July 6th, 1895 in Springtown, Texas situated on the north side of Parker County, TX on the west fork of the great Trinity River in a belt of timber called the lower cross timbers of Texas.

Biographical note: 1858, Camp Verde, Kerr County, TX. The U.S. Army post of Camp Verde was established in 1855 and the town of Camp Verde followed shortly thereafter. The military post was one of many situated to protect the Texas frontier. A post office for the Camp Verde community opened in 1858 and is still operating as part of the Camp Verde store. The community was subject to Indian attacks until after the Civil War as were other small towns along the frontier. Today the Camp Verde community consists of the Camp Verde store, the cemetery and the remains of the military post. The town is located in Kerr County. SUBMITTED BY: Henry Chenoweth

Camp Verde has a special historical significance. It was the site of the U. S. Army's research into the feasibility of using camels in the U. S. It seems that the experiment showed that camels would not be used and the animals were released. Stories are told of great beasts roaming thru the country frightening the residents. It seems that some of the camels were the great beasts and when released became wild. There may be some question concerning the truth of this but it makes a good story. H. H Colvin

 

It is now a ghost town.

General Notes: The Lindsey book says Thomas,

the Bandys desc of Fanny Lewis say Stephen Lewis and Letha Stinnet.

 

 

These notes are true, if indeed, this is the right Thomas Lewis!!

 

However, the Bandy desc of Fanny Lewis think Letha's husband was Stephen or Steven Lewis. Fanny was adopted by the man, Mr. Thorp, who helped start Add-Ran College. ACU, in Abilene, now.

He was president of it.

Brother Bouchillon has been an exemplary member and Elder in this Church and we can but feel that our loss will be his and their gain.

Dear Rhea, August 27, 2001

 

Thanks for your note of Aug 26, on Ellison ...

 

It is fun trying to sort the Coxes of that era and area.

Here is a note I made earlier on the Cox--Allison--Beverley connection..

No real proof, but info is consistent.. William Cox named in will

of John Beverley 1737 as grandson, is probably the one who died by

1783 on John's Island... This John Beverley is probably the son of

Major Robert Beverley 1641-1687 of Virginia -- and brother of

Robert Beverley, the early Virginia historian... ..

 

I need to

look at the Pendleton Will Book again. Two sons named in the will

of the William Cox wp 1821 (??).. were John Wesley Cox and William

Bolen Cox. These two probably kin to John Cox wp 1816. They

apparently were involved in the estate sale of William Cannon

about 1822.

Dear Cox Researcher Cousins and Beverly -- August 4, 2001

SC State Archives...

 

I have found the Miller links that support the connection between the Coxes

of Big Generostee Creek with the Coxes and Beverlys of Bertie NC. I will

try to give citations.

 

The Union County Historical Foundation, Union SC published a Map

book of land grants in NW South Carolina in 1976 reprinted 1995.

That pinpoints Cox locations..

 

William Cox got a grant in 1766 along the North side of the Enoree

River 400 acres, across from Warrior's Creek. His grant was in

present day Spartanburg County -- just south of Exit 44 on I-26,

along SC Highway 49. The James Allison grant from 1769 400 acres

is just south across Enoree River and along North side of Warrior's

Creek - in present day Laurens County. The George Cox grant - 300

acres 1767 is about 5 miles west above Ora and the John Cox (wife Elizabeth)

grant - 150 acres 1768 - is about 10 miles West, near

Gray Court.. William Cox later bought some of the James Allison

grant.

 

 

Just east of the William Cox grant in Spartanburg County is the

100 acre grant to Matthew Couch (Crouch) and there were other Couches

in the area, plus a Samuel Cannon grant 1765 - sons William, John,

James, Isaac. William Cannon may be son-in-law of William Cox..

There were Bobo's in area too - including a Hiram and a Tilman.

 

Laurens County Deed - Book C pages 47-48 LDS roll LR-1 SC roll C3

John Cox planter and wife Sarah of Indian Creek sold land to

Sandford Berry - 100 acres of 400 acres granted to James Allison

22 September 1769. Wit: John Cannon, John Hall signed 28 June 1788.

Recorded 27 June 1789.

 

Laurens County Deed - Book F pages 235-236 LDS roll LR-2 SC roll C4

Sandford Berry sold to Spencer Bobo of Spartanburg County for

60 pounds sterling on 28 Nov 1794 -- 100 acres SE part of 400 acres

granted to James Allison conveyed to William Cox by Lease and Release 4 and

5 August 1774. Since conveyed by John Cox son of William Decd to the said

Sandford Berry by Lease and Release bearing date of 28 and 29 June 1788.

Beginning at a beach on Enoree Bank s62w 44.20 chains.

Thence on old line s10e 30 chains. Thence n80e 11 chains along old

line. Thence n20e 28.50 chains. Thence n50e 11 chains on old line

to Enoree Bank. Thence to beginning.

 

---- The importance of these deeds is that they indicate that

the John Cox will proven 1816 wife Sarah -- was most likely son

of William Cox and not John and Elizabeth Cox. -----

 

---- Location of Beverly Cox is shown to be next to William Cox --

 

Spartanburg County Deed Book M pages 188-190 Old deed recorded

Mathew Couch and wife Fanny (Enoree) to Beverly Cox (same) for

50 pounds SC money sold 50 acres on a branch of the Enoree granted

June 16, 1700 (??) to Mathew Couch in Craven County.

 

So it is possible and probable that four brothers - sons of John

Cox who died by 1752 as indicated in Granville county NC orphan

records, were in this area by 1770's. 1752 orphan process named

John - 18 Beverley - 16 George - 13 and Amey - 11 as minor

children of John Cox deceased... William was probably older..

 

The establishment of the miller trade for William Cox and

probably his brothers is indicated in deeds on the original

William Cox grant on Spartanburg side of Enoree.

 

Sparanburg County Deed Book A pages 104-109 November 14, 1785

Thomas Briggs son of John Briggs miller of Enoree sold 200

acres and a grist mill to Thomas Tod -- one tract sold by

William Cox desc to John Briggs 100 acres on north side of

Enoree - other tract was in Union County. -- We do not

know by this if William Cox or his survivors sold this land.

 

Will of James Allison - Laurens County - proven March 9, 1789.

To son James - 150 acres where he now lives including saw mill.

To wife Nancy - 100 acres and grist mill. Daughter Elizabeth

not yet married. James is to use revenue from saw mill to

maintain grist mill (evidently his mother got this) and get

his milling free.

 

There were plenty of mills in the area then -- and William Cox

may have built several of them..

 

On Beverly Cox son of John Cox who died in 1798 (estate sale

May 1799) Pendleton District a later deed gives some insight.

 

Pendleton District Deed Book J - pages 57-58 Recorded 7 Sep 1807 -

Beverly Cox of Pendleton District sold 150 acres left by his

father deceased as a deed of gift 30 March 1798 (or 1799?) lying

on a branch of 26 Mile Creek sold to Harrel (Hamel) Felton 26

Oct 1802. There is a note that witness John Hodgen swore before

a JP in Buncombe County NC on 28 August 1807 that he saw Beverly

Cox assign and deliver the deed to Harrel Felton... (Earlier

I thought this connected Beverly Cox to NC but it does not, just

the witness.)

 

This deed is not consistent with Book E - page 201 16 Apr 1801

where the John Cox deed of gift to his loving son Beverly is

dated 30 March 1789. The Indians still had that area in 1790

I think. Correct date of gift is probably 30 March 1798 -- and

this may explain lack of will by John Cox wife Elizabeth. This

was probably all the land he owned and a will was not essential.

1800 census has Elizabeth Cox living next to or with a John Cox

in Pendleton District. John Cox with children for wp 1816 lived

elsewhere and Mary Cox (widow of Beverly)lived near him.

 

----- Back to Bertie County NC ---

NC Higher Court Minutes March 1727 General Court page 356..

<Daniel v. Cox> William Daniel Ordinary keeper by Thomas Jones

his Attorney comes to prosecute John Cox Mill Wright in an action

of Trepass on the Case for One hundred pounds damage And the

Sayd defendant by John Bapa. (Baptista) Ashe his attorney appear'd

and at their Motion and by Consent the Sayd Suite is putt respite

untill the Next Court on the last Tuesday in July next.

--- Case was eventually dismissed --

 

< Daniel v Benton Trepass on the case> July 1726 page 271

Benton of the precinct of Bertie ....

 

< Daniel v Salter > March 1726 page 197

William Daniel of Bertie Precinct against Malachi Salter of

New England Mariner assault on 2 Aug 1725...

 

These entries seems to indicate that John Cox Mill Wright -

probably of Bertie Precinct - was not always welcome at William

Daniel's Tavern, which was probably a rough honky-tonk where

sailors fought with cowboys of the day.. or the owner ...

The assault that John Cox later alleged on 7 September 1726

--page 318 of October 1726 Court Minutes -- by William Hynes

labourer (in custody) may have occurred at or near this

honky-tonk during or after happy hour. It occurred early in

month -- maybe they had just gotten their paychecks..

 

I will transcribe that later...

 

Enough for now --- I hope this is of interest ...

Biography: 1860, Corinth, Tishomingo, MS.99 History of Tishomingo County, Mississippi page 92 (Film 895939 contained a paper submitted by Adelle Sanders Francis, which was written by Moses Marion Sanders.

 

Corinth, Mississippi. July 6, 1880. It is to those in future generations that this biographical sketch is intended to enlighten upon the immediate history of our family It is natural, it is right, it is simply a prompting of the soul that inspires in us a love to perpetuate the deeds of the honorable, good, and noble. Such prompts me to enclose a link in the chain of chronology that will hand down the unstained name of our family to the unknown ages of the futures.

 

Whilst my mind runs back along the family pathway through the lights and shade of several generations for nearly two hundred years I am delighted to find no dark lines recorded no traces that lead from the roll of honor no stains or disgrace to mar the bright heroism of the future generations of the family that will follow in our footprints.

 

Our grandfather Moses Sanders was born in the early part of the 18th century. His life was spent in agriculture as a pursuit and theology as a profession being a Baptist preacher. Our grandfather John Robins was a merchant in Virginia.

 

John Sanders our father was born in North Carolina March 2nd A.D. 1787. Our mother Aby Richardson Sanders daughter of John Robins was born in Virginia August 18th 1796. Father and mother were married in North Carolina in A.D. 18 (left blank but should read 1811 in Franklin County, Georgia). They lived together nearly long enough to celebrate their golden wedding-fifty years. Father lived the quiet life of an independent planter having owned slaves prior to the commencement of the late war. In the early days of his life he was a soldier being engaged in the Indian War of A.D. 1812.

 

Alas time with his scythe has carried many of our family to the tomb. Father and mother like many of their children sleep in the quiet city of the dead. Father died 15 Nov A.D. 1858 Mother died 10 Apr 1866. Though they are gone yet they lived to see the greater number of their children married and settled down in reasonable prosperity.

 

Our eldest sister Acenith married William Muckelroy. Sister Thursialou having married A. G. Pearson whose family is quite honorable. Our sister Jiney married Joseph Carter. Our sister Elizabeth married Henry Derryberry. Our eldest brother Lovel Dogaus never married. He was taken prisoner by the Federals in 1863 during the late war and never heard from. James Monroe gave most of his time to agriculture, and politics he was quite a prominent member of the general assembly of the State of Arkansas in 1860. He was a brave captain in the War Between the States. Josiah Hardin lived in Texas engaged in farming and stock raising was a brave soldier and lost his life in defense of his country 1863. Cardinal Walsey, lived in Tennessee. Engaged in planting was also a brave and generous solider and officer in the late war and lost his life in service 1864. Simeon Lafayette the youngest son was born in Miss. 31st May A. D. 1839. He is more inclined to a mercantile and political life excels many of his fellows in many good and chivalrous deeds one who wins at will and holds his

72

_____________________________________________________________________

friends with a strengthened chain. During the war he was engaged for four years coming out with honors and scars having never missed an engagement unless brought down by the casualties of war. He married Miss Mary Pinnay Young daughter of I.P. Young of this city in the year 1867. Is a prominent citizen of this city and has made well-merited reputation as a political officer and acommercial tourist. This family consists of four members self wife & two bright intelligent beautiful little girls Mattie & Mary. Now I have given a biographical sketch of each member of the family save one, the writer, MosesMarion Sanders."

 

"As a rule the family has an inclination to morality; and religion. The writer and next to the youngest and only son living except Fayette was born Jan A.D. 1838. During his early life he was engaged in agriculture and attending country schools in company with his brothers Walsey and Lafayette. He graduated in medicine in 1860 Joined the 1st Ark infantry in Feb 1861."

 

"Fayette and I soldiers together the entire war receiving three wounds each both alike held positions as officers in our command. The writer married Miss Cynthia C. Bruton daughter of Benjamine Bruton of this city Dec 19, 1865. We have a pleasant little family circle with only one we miss from home. Our first is in the grave. The oldest boy Simeon Alonzo a bright boy very sprightly and bids to be an elocutionist of note. 2nd boy Earl Bruton quick intelligent and much inclined to refinement 3rd boy Marcus Marion bright, joyous and happy more mischievious than ever was the 'father of his country..' 4th Edna our girl

endowed with more spirit and will and equal mind to any of the boys. 5th Sweet Lena 'our first' is in the cold silent tomb."

As stated in the above paper, John Sanders was born 2 Mar 1887 in North Carolina. His father deeded land to him in 1811 but he was not to take possession until after his and his wife's death.

Hanging Rock

 

 

 

After the success of the Siege of Charlestown, the British set about to pacify the countryside. The PWAR was part of the main British army and took quarters at Camden, where they constructed huts for themselves meant to resist the hot weather.(78) In the latter part of July the bulk of the regiment, along with three other corps, was advanced towards Hanging Rock in part to "awe the disaffected," having first stopped at Rocky Mount .(79) This last post had been attacked by a large force of militia and partisans under the command of Thomas Sumter, who had been repulsed by the New York Volunteers under Lt. Col. George Turnbull and some South Carolina Loyalist Militia. On the night of 5 August 1780 the troops continued their march, arriving at Hanging Rock in the dark of night, and neglected sending out proper patrols.

 

Sumter and his force, reinforced since his repulse at Rocky Mount, made their appearance before Hanging Rock shortly after dawn. He launched his attack between six and seven in the morning, directing his force agains t the newly formed North Carolina Volunteers under Colonel Samuel Bryan, on the right flank of the camp. Bryan's corps, being undisciplined, soon broke, leaving the right flank exposed. In this situation Major Carden of the PWAR ordered a part of his regiment and the Royal North Carolina Regiment to fill the gap. The slaughter was terrible. Dozens from both regiments fell, compelling a further retreat. The line finally centered on a three pounder field piece protected by a party of Colonel Henry Rugeley's Regiment of Camden Militia. One hundred and sixty men of the British Legion twice charged Sumter's line, likewise the Royal North Carolina Regiment. Just at this critical period of the battle, forty mounted infantry of the British Legion appeared from Rocky Mount and dismounted, deploying in extended files to appear greater in number than they actually were. This turned the tide. As an officer of the PWAR wrote:

 

"The Legion a nd Prince of Wales's pouring in a well(96)directed fire, charged and total ly routed the enemy, pursuing with a dreadful carnage."

The battle was over. And as a fighting regiment, so was the Prince of Wales'.(80)

 

When the smoke had cleared and the bugle horn ceased sounding, the Loyalists counted their dead. The losses were appalling for the numbers involved. Of the estimated 181 officers and men of the PWAR that had taken the field that day, 93 were dead, wounded or missing. It was amongst the worst losses of any Loyalist regiment during the war. The other corps, Bryan's excepted, suffered grievously as well. The Royal North Carolinian s lost 50 officers and men, while the British Legion infantry counted 35 out of about 200 officers and men as their casualties. The North Carolina Volunteers likewise had men killed and wounded, but since they fled the field early, they were not thought significant. No return of Sumter's casualties was ever made. But by far, the PWAR had fought and bled the most on that hot summer's day in South Carolina. Of the 17 sergeants that had fielded that day, 5 were killed and another 4 were badly wounded, 3 of whom were also taken prisoner by Sumter. Seven corporals were also amongst the wounded and captured, a devastating blow to the non commissioned officer's corps. Six of the eleven officers on the field were also eithe r killed or wounded. Lieutenant Abraham Hickox and Ensign John Fowler were killed immediately. Lieutenant Benjamin Ogden lived for fifteen hours after the battle before he too died. The regiment was left shattered and in little shape for any more active campaigning. To make matters worse , the Southern climate proved too much for many of these Northern constitutions. As many as seventeen soldiers had died of disease within that month. Ten of the officers, including the surgeon's mate, were sick and Major Carden, who had led the regiment in battle, was just then recovering. Twelve others were otherwise absent or on command elsewhere, leaving the remnants of the unit with virtually no officers to do duty.(81)

 

One of the Loyalists taking part in the fighting that day was General Browne's servant, Samuel Burke. This Black Loyalist was a native of Charlestown, South Carolina and met Governor Browne in England in 1774. He "entered into his service" and traveled with him to the Bahamas, being take n prisoner with the governor by Hopkins' fleet. All the time Browne was in captivity and later raising the regiment, Burke was by his side assisting. While in New York, he married a "free Dutch mulatto Woman" by whom he acquired a house and garden in the city. These, however, were soon appropriated as barracks for the troops, and his new wife was soon turned out of doors. Undaunted, Burke, along with his wife, continued to serve Browne, taking part in the Danbury expedition where he was "badly wounded. " After Browne left the regiment after the Siege of Rhode Island, Burke continued to serve with the unit, but in what capacity is not known. He was, however, in the fighting at Hanging Rock, being so severely wounded that he was almost given up for dead. His fighting days were over, and he would end up destitute in England in August of 1783, seeking the help of a government he had served for eight years.(82)

 

On the whole, the Battle of Hanging Rock was a loss from which the PWAR would never recover. As a complete unit, they had fought their last battle.
