William H. Meadow, clerk of Humphreys County Court a native of the county was born in the 8th Dsitrict Nov 23, 1857 being the eldest of 7 living members of a family of 9 children born to Jacob E. Meadow of Williamson County Tn and Susan C. Crockett of Humphreys County Tn. Our subjects great grandfather William H. Meadow came to this section of the country about the beginning of the present century, with our subjects Grandfather William D. Meadow, the family located on a tract of land which is two miles above the mouth of Hurricane Creek. Here Jacob E. Meadow was reared married our subjects mother and raised his family and after his first wife’s death in April 2, 1870 he married Mary McCollum by whom on son and 2 daughters survive. In 1873 Jacob E. Meadow removed to Dickson County Tn and in May 1884 he removed to Houston County where he now resides. Our subject was reared on the farm in the 8th District of this county, securing a fair literary education in the Waverly schools, which he attended 2 years.

He was elected by the county court to office of county clerk, to fill the unexpired term of the late G.M. Rodgers. And it may truthfully be said that Mr. Meados has discharged the duties of his office in an efficient and highly satisfactory manner.

Mr Meadow’s is an unserving Democrat and a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Waverly and is recognized as one among the succeful and enterprising citizens of Humphreys County and a justly popular figure.

1. Jean1 Farcy was born in France, and died Abt. 1719 in King Williams Parish, Virginia. He married ? Chastain in France.
Notes for Jean Farcy:
Jean Farcy was
Minister of the Church of Mouchamp, in Low Poicton, France. He emigrated to London, England with a group of French Huguenot refugees in route to America.

 

Jean and his wife came to America in 1700 with the Marquis de la Muse on the first of 4 ships, possibly called the Mary Ann. Jean was naturalized in 1705. English settlers did not have to be naturalized but others did. They settled at Manakintown, Virginia and suffered hardships the first few years. Jean Farcy was one of the first vestrymen of King William Parrish and Farcy's are named in the Douglas Register for that Parrish. Jean and his wife who married Anthony Rapine after Jean died about 1717 had two sons, Estienne(Stephen) and Francois(Francis). Information on this family appears in Documents on Huguenot Emigration to Virginia by R.A. Brock and Turff and Twig by Priscilla Cabell includes a map showing location of land Jean Farcy was allotted. There is a documented will at the court house in Cumberland County, VA.

2. Stephen2 Forsee (Jean1 Farcy) was born Abt. 1709 in King Williams Parish, Virginia. He married Marie Perrow, daughter of Charles Perrault and Marguerite Rapine. She was born Abt. 1710 in King Williams Parish, Virginia.

Notes for Stephen Forsee:
Stephen and his brother Francis were orphaned about 1719 and became members of the household of their "kinsman" Estienne Chastain. "Estienne Farcy" was first listed as a tithable in the year 1726(consequently of the age of 16 years). He continued to be listed in the household of Estienne Chastain through the year 1731. On 1 May 1731, Chastain and Farcy engaged in a land "swap", which appears to have been highly favorable to young Farcy, and presumably represented Chastain's help to the young man in setting up household on his own.

 

"Stephen Chastain of the Parish of King William in the County of Goochland Gent." conveyed to Stephen Forsee of the Parish of King William Planter a tract of 400 acres lying between the two Manican Creeks on the south side of James River beginning at a red oak in Francis Forsee's line." "Stephen Forsee" in return conveyed to Chastain "his equal part of all that tract of land that was to him divised by John Forsee his late father deceased as by his will bearing date the 19th day of December in the year 1718.....containing by estimate 20 acres." From the year 1733 on "Estiene Farsi" headed his own household.

Stephen Forsee spent his entire life in King William Parish where he made his will 8 November 1772, probate thereof being accomplished 22 November 1773. Devisees included "my beloved wife" (not named), "my son Stephen (100 acres of land adjoining the land that his brother John Forsee gave him); my son Francis Forsee (the Plantation whereon I now live containing 200 acres of land as soon as he shall come of age); three of my children, Charles, William and Elizabeth(after their mother's death); my four daughters Maryann Maxi, Ann Martin, Jane Briant and Judith Price". Executors were to be the wife and the two sons, Stephen and Francis.

Notes for Daniel Pierre Forsee:
Daniel Pierre Forsee was born and married in
Virginia, then moved to Hickman County, Tennessee in 1815. He stayed two years there, then moved on to Humphreys County. He was one of the early settlers of Humphreys County, Tennessee. It was in the year of 1817 that he moved to McEwen, Tennessee.
Little is known of his possessions. Tilf Cotham has his desk; Ben Forsee has his wine flasks, razors, etc.; Mary Meadow's children have the family Bible. He always wore a strand of amber beads around his neck. The strand of amber beads have been given from children to grandchildren. He was a wealthy settler and a peaceful neighbor. He owned more than 100 slaves, and much property. In a graveyard near the old home place there are 64 slaves buried. He was kind to his slaves, and they respected him. Most of his children settled near him. His health failed rapidly after his son, Tilford, was killed in the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee, November 30, 1864.

Tilford Monroe Forsee (Source: Forsee History; compiled by Lillian A. Forsee Davis, Ida Lee Forsee and Fannie Forsee Uselton.), born 1823; died November 30, 1864 in Battle of Franklin, Franklin, Tennessee/Franklin, Williamson Co., TN.

 

Notes for Tilford Monroe Forsee:
Tilford Monroe Forsee enlisted during the Civil War, September 7, 1861 at Waverly, Tennessee and served until he was killed on the breastworks during the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee, November 30, 1864. He was Sergent, 2nd Lieutenant, the 1st Lieutenant of Company A, 24th Battalion Tennessee Sharp Shooters, Confederate States Army. He was a school teacher by occupation and never married.

When Tilford was killed, Billy Slayton sent word to his father, Squire Travis Slayton, of his death. Squire Slayton went to Daniel Pierre Forsee. A cabinet maker by the name of Mr. Lumsden, who lived three miles west of the Forsee home, made the coffin.

Squire Travis Slayton, Martha Forsee Nolan(a sister of Tilford) with Big John, a Negro house boy in the Forsee home, drove to Franklin, Tennessee, for the body. It required three days and nights to make the trip, the roads were bad and they had trouble passing the picket lines. The only method of conveyance at the time was an ox wagon. Big John did the driving.

Upon their arrival in Franklin, Billy Slayton directed them to the shallow grave where the slain body lay buried. They found him buried with a comrade who was killed at the same time. Both bodies were wrapped in Tilford's blanket. The men, with the help of Big John, removed the bodies, placed Tilford in the coffin they had carried with them, then replaced the unknown soldier in the grave, after prewrapping him in the same blanket.

Upon arrival home, the uniform was removed and civilian clothes placed on him. He was buried in the Forsee Cemetery, six miles south of McEwen, on Hurricane Creek.

The story is told that Tilford's sisters that were still home were very much afraid because their brothers were away at war. At night the girls would watch the slave quarters from their upstairs bedroom window. They would see the bon-fires burning and slave roasting sweet potatoes.

Also in 1841 Oct. Hudson Johnson is annexed as the Administrator of the Will of John Johnson dec, who inherited lands from the commmissioners of the administration of the the Estate of Hudson Johnson. To do this John Johnson is deceased and Hudson Johnson is the son of the Deceased John Johnson:

Hudson Johnson to John Johnson to Hudson Johnson. This is proved in the Census also of 1830 where the only Female with a John Johnson is in Humphreys County with a Wife and one Child: In 1840 Anne Johnson who is born 1770 Va is with 3 males now.

RESEARCH NOTE: Wm. May didn't sign this deed: nor did his wife Martha May: Wm. Lain didn't sign this deed neither did his wife Mary Lain:, Wm Johnson didn't sign the document above and neither did Hudson Johnson via his attorney.:: Reason they are not heirs of the John Johnson mentioned Above. This supports my belief Ann Johnson was raising her Grandchildren, the children of John Johnson and wife Anny of Dickson County Tn in 1835.
