I have known for many years of my family's descent from Sir John Hawkins, cousin of Sir Francis Drake, and list below the combined family information from dozens of sources. Other descendants of Sir John Hawkins whose lines (may or may not be?) in dispute are shown at: Sir John Hawkins Descendants

 

Descendants of Philemon Hawkins

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

      1.  Philemon8 Hawkins  (<Unknown>7, <Unknown>6, John Sidney5, Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born 1690 in Slapton, Devonshire, England, and died 1725 in Charles City Co., VA.  He married Anne Eleanor Howard Abt. 1714 in England, daughter of Capt. <Unknown> Howard.  She was born Abt. 1694 in England, and died 1742 in Bute Co., NC.

 

Notes for Philemon Hawkins:

Philemon is said to have claimed to be the great-grandson of Sir Richard Hawkins.  Descendants have maintained this as gospel ever since.  Who am I to disagree?  I cannot find the link, however.

 

p. 36 - Hawkins of Virginia, The Carolinas, and Kentucky - published by Dorothy Ford Wulfeck.  "Queries from Genealogy and History Magazine"  #7585 15 June 1943.  An answer to #7377 which had been sent in by EPO. Hawkins, Howard, Smith, Craig, Taliaferro, Hayden, Long, Long, Simpson, Prichett, McDonald, Randle, Ellis, Casel; England, Va., No. Car., Ga.

 

"Philemon Hawkins (b. 1695, England) emigrated to America with wife, Eleanor (Howard); to Virginia in the neighborhood of Todd's Bridge, near relatives who had preceded him.  (Such is the record of tradition familiar to descendants.)  The Reg. Land Office, Richmond, Va., shows Philemon had land granted him in King William Co.: 2 patents in 1719 and 2 in 1725 in that part which is now King and Queen Co.  Todd's Bridge was in King and Queen over the Matapony River.  The probabilities are that John Hawkins of King William was the relative who had preceded the immigrant in 1714. Philemon d. 1725, and ca 1735, his widow and their children, Philemon, John and Anna, moved to No. Car. where many of their desc. now live."

 

"Philemon Hawkins emigrated to the colonies along with five brothers...Nicholas, Joseph, John, Lieu Dolphus and another whose name is unknown"

(Note: Another Philemon Hawkins, likely closely related, resided in Virginia and was born about 1715)

 

memo: 6 generations

 

Notes for Anne Eleanor Howard:

Anne Eleanor Howard was the daughter of Capt. Howard of Plymouth, England.  The family of Howard in England is a prominent one, including Sir Thomas Howard, who commanded the Armada and who recommended that Philemon Hawkins' ancestor, Sir John Hawkins, get knighted after that victory.  His descendants included two of the wives of Henry VIII of England, and his family is in my file, though no link has been established to Anne Eleanor.  I am related to him as a cousin on another line.  The possible naval family connection has me interested in pursuing this, though!

She moved from Virginia to North Carolina after the death of her husband, and married an (unknown) Irishman.  Anyone who can identify him, please let me know!!!

     

Children of Philemon Hawkins and Anne Howard are:

+      2                 i.    Col. Philemon9 Hawkins II, born 28 Sep 1717 in near Chickahominy River, Todd's Bridge, Charles City Co., VA; died 10 Sep 1801 in Pleasant Hill, Warren (now Vance) Co., NC.

+      3                ii.    John D. Hawkins, born 08 Apr 1720 in Gloucester Co., VA or Charles City Co., VA.

        4               iii.    Ann Hawkins, born Abt. 1723 in VA; died Bef. 1742 in Warren Co., NC.

 

Notes for Ann Hawkins:

never married

 

 

Generation No. 2

 

      2.  Col. Philemon9 Hawkins II (Philemon8, <Unknown>7, <Unknown>6, John Sidney5, Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born 28 Sep 1717 in near Chickahominy River, Todd's Bridge, Charles City Co., VA, and died 10 Sep 1801 in Pleasant Hill, Warren (now Vance) Co., NC.  He married Delia Martin 1743 in Brunswick Co., VA, daughter of Zachariah Martin.  She was born 15 Dec 1721 in Brunswick Co., VA, and died 20 Aug 1794 in Raleigh, Wake, NC.

 

Notes for Col. Philemon Hawkins II:

1757 for several terms High Sheriff of Granville Co., NC

1776 member of the Continental Congress at Halifax, NC

He raised and commanded a batallion of cavalry.

 

Note: There is a Pleasant Hill cemetery off Kanuga Road, Henderson Co., NC.  There is a Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in far-northern Granville Co., NC.  The wikipedia article about his grandson, Governor William Hawkins, indicates that Pleasant Hill (plantation) was in the current Vance Co., which was established around 1890.

 

Though often repeated, no evidence has been found linking this Philemon Hawkins to Gloucester Co., VA - though it may have been the port of entry, and may have encompassed more land then than it does now.

note: John Martin's wife and Delia Martin Hawkins' sister-in-law Rachel is often shown to be Rachel Hawkins.  She does not appear in recorded family histories of Philemon Hawkins.  Who was she?  Phoebe Terrell was her daughter, the wife of Hezekiah Terrell.

 

Virkus Compendium, Vol. II p. 286 indicates that this Philemon Hawkins had a daughter, Mary Hawkins, who married John Downey.

 

Notes for Delia Martin:

Buried Warren Co., NC next to her husband.  There was once a historical marker near their gravesite, on the old homestead.

     

Children of Philemon Hawkins and Delia Martin are:

+      5                 i.    Delia10 Hawkins, born Abt. 1744.

+      6                ii.    Col. John Hawkins, born 1745 in Bute Co., NC; died 11 Apr 1808 in Warren Co., NC.

+      7               iii.    Philemon Hawkins III, born 03 Dec 1752 in Bute Co., NC / Warren Co., NC; died 27 Jan 1833 in Warren Co., NC.

+      8               iv.    Col. Benjamin Hawkins, born 15 Aug 1754 in Bute Co. (now Vance Co.), NC; died 06 Jun 1816 in Creek Agency near Roberta, Crawford, GA.

        10             vi.    Col. Joseph Hawkins, born 1756; died Bef. 1779 in on Canadian Frontier during Revolution.

 

Notes for Col. Joseph Hawkins:

31 May 1784 Will of Joseph Hawkins names father Philemon Hawkins and brothers John , Philemon, and Benjamin.

 

+      11            vii.    Anne Hawkins, born 1760; died 12 Mar 1781.

 

 

      3.  John D.9 Hawkins (Philemon8, <Unknown>7, <Unknown>6, John Sidney5, Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born 08 Apr 1720 in Gloucester Co., VA or Charles City Co., VA.  He married Mary Wyatt Abt. 1744 in Probably Bute Co., NC, daughter of Henry Wyatt and Mary Wynne.  She was born 20 Sep 1726 in Caroline Co., VA.

 

Notes for John D. Hawkins:

Abt. 1735 moved from Virginia to North Carolina.

Did this couple have a son, Isham Hawkins, who had a grandson named Wyatt Hawkins?  Did they have a son, Benjamin Hawkins, who married Phoebe Jones?

 

It appears that they had a daughter Sarah Hawkins who married William Caller, son of Robert Caller, from this record:

 

Will Book 4,   Warren Co. NC, page 54

Agreement between Robert Caller and Salley, widow of his son William, lately deceased, with reference to Adm. of estate, property from her father John Hawkins, and guardianship of her infant son Charles.

Salley Caller married James Gordon 6/23/1787.

sbmoore@swbell.net Sue Moore descends from this line.  March 2001

     

Children of John Hawkins and Mary Wyatt are:

+      12               i.    Mary10 Hawkins, born 1746; died Sep 1830 in Oglethorpe, GA.

+      13              ii.    Philemon Hawkins V, born Aft. 1748.

        14             iii.    Wyatt Hawkins, born Abt. 1752; died Aft. 1782.  He married Frances Burford; born Abt. 1750 in King William Co., VA.

+      15             iv.    Ann Hawkins, born Abt. 1760 in Granville Co., NC.

 

 

Generation No. 3

 

      5.  Delia10 Hawkins (Philemon9, Philemon8, <Unknown>7, <Unknown>6, John Sidney5, Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born Abt. 1744.  She married Leonard Henley Bullock 07 Nov 1760, son of Richard Bullock and Anne Henley.  He was born 17 Nov 1736, and died 1797.

 

Notes for Delia Hawkins:

Delia has a sister, Frances, who more likely is called "Fanny."  The book "Southern Kith and Kin" indicates that Leonard married Fannie Hawkins, daughter of Philemon Hawkins.  As that Frances married in 1772, and this one probably died before the marriage to Susannah Martin Goodloe (who MAY be descended from Zachariah Martin) in 1766, the book may be wrong.

Delia died without any children.

17 Nov 1760 was listed as a wedding date - I do not recall where I found it, but based on Delia's probable birth date, this is not possible.

 

Notes for Leonard Henley Bullock:

Leonard Bullock later married Susannah (Martin) Goodloe.

 

He was involved in, and mentioned in, the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals which created the (short-lived) colony of Transylvania.

Philemon Hawkins was a witness of his father's will.

(now Vance Co.), NC, and died 06 Jun 1816 in Creek Agency near Roberta, Crawford, GA.  He married Lavinia Downs 09 Jan 1812 in Ft.

Notes for Col. Benjamin Hawkins:

Indian Agent for all Tribes south of the Ohio River.  Senator from North Carolina.  Well published, well-traveled, and many encyclopedia articles.  Married when he thought he was on his deathbed, in order to make his children "legitimate."  Then he survived for a couple of more years, and had another daughter.

 

The wife of a William McIntosh was Eliza Grierson (b c 1799, of Carroll Co., GA) who was said to have been raised by the family of Benjamin Hawkins.  Several references exist in family histories of the "half-breed children of Benjamin Hawkins," with names other than those recorded in his will.

Notes for Lavinia Downs:

Was she ... or wasn't she ...?  The Queen of Tuckabatchie?

 

There is evidence in the Moravian Diaries that Lavinia indicated she was white (See her father's record).  Suspicion that she was Creek has been voiced since shortly after her death, including comments such as "there is no truth to the rumor that she was an Indian."  However: " ... confirmation that Lavina Downs was Creek came from the Chehaws who showed Janice [Woods Windle] that the marriage of Hawkins and Downs is recorded in the official Marriages of the Muskogee."

http://www.rootsweb.com/~gajones/hawkins.htm

 

Lavinia Downs is thought by many family members to be of the Ocmulgee Creek Nation, and they insist she was first the wife of Chief Long Side of Tuckabatchie (Tookautchee).  He was killed in a raid, and she was widowed with a young son, Silas.  Her son Silas is said to have been born in 1792 which conflicts with Lavinia's reported birthdate of 10 May 1781.  The birthdate of her presumed son Silas Downs, however, would have come at age 10 or 11, if both birthdates are reported correctly.

 

Lavinia lived at the Creek agency (in Crawford Co., GA) with her husband, Col. Benjamin Hawkins until his death.  At her death, over a decade later, she was still living in Crawford County.  One of her daughters was buried in Roberta, the county seat, and records from a lawsuit / complaint indicate that this daughter, Jeffersonia, lived with Lavinia.  Lavinia was buried at Ft. Hawkins, and her grave is not (obviously) marked.  Her obituary was carried in the Milledgeville paper, as that town was (then) a major center and the one-time state capital.

 

Page 60 of the Crawford County Guardian Bonds Book "A" states that Richard W. Ellis was appointed adminsitrator of her estate on March 3, 1834.  Hiram Troutman and Bryan Bateman acted as security and a bond of $500 was posted.  The minimal bond indicates that Pound was correct in stating that she lost most of her inheritance from Benjamin.  Hiram Troutman was the father of Joanna Troutman who sewed the famous flag carried into the Texas Revolution by the Georgia volunteers.

 

If Lavinia was Creek, that fact was kept secret throughout the part of the family that remained in Water Valley, Mississippi after 1850.  The part of the family that moved to San Marcos kept alive this secret.  Her suspected Creek heritage is commemorated by the book "True Women" by Janice Woods Windle, which has been made into a mini-series (and slightly fictionalized by screen-writers).

In 1900, 69 year-old lawyer, Archibald, now in Little River, (Jackson and Richland Townships), Arkansas, is listed as a widower, and is in the home with several of his children: Philemon (son b. 1872), who is also a lawyer; Mary (20); Lucy (17);Jamie or Janie (15).  All of the children were born in Arkansas, and both parents were born in NC.  (Assuming this is the same Archibald, he must have married sometime between 1870 and 1872.)

Notes for Benjamin Hawkins:

This is not Benjamin Franklin Hawkins of Buncombe Co., NC as was thought by some since the 1920's.

 

Thanks to Dorothy Hawkins: Mom407Dot@aol.com (Oct. 2001)

 

"This Bible indicates that Benjamin was born in 1762 and "Hanah his wife" was born in 1769.  All the 13 children are listed and there is no indication that Benjamin had 2 wives.  Each child is listed with complete birthdates and all but one have complete death dates.  The one whose death date does not appear is Elizabeth who died in 1901 and outlived all her siblings.

 

"Every document we have located indicates that Benjamin was known by only one given name as was Hannah, and that the name Benjamin Franklin Hawkins was given to  their youngest son born in 1815 when Benjamin Franklin had achieved recognition for his activities prior to, during and following  the Rev. War period.  You may note that B.F.'s next oldest brother born 1812 was given the name of Joseph Washington Hawkins also recognizing the contributions of George Washington.  Prior to those two children the only names listed in the family Bible were single given names.  I do believe that as fashion began to dictate it that some of the children (daughters especially) may have taken second names.

 

"The name of the son "Bailey" that appears in your listing is actually LIttleberry and his brother Robert is known only as Robert even in the Cherokee County GA records.

He named his son Washington again in honor obviously of  G.W.  We started our deep research after being contacted by a descendant of Robert's who lives in CA.   I have had contacts with descendants of all the children with the exception of 2 of the daughters, Nancy and "Routh."  Nancy we believe to have married a Cobb and we have no knowledge at this time of Ruth.

 

"As this research developed we found a William Hawkins who died in 1793 in Bedford County, VA .  His will lists his sons and all Benjamin's sons were given these names with the exception of the oldest, John, who was born before William's death and we believe was named after Hannah's father.  William's wife was named Mary and is believed to have been a Littleberry.  One of the sons of William was named Littleberry and another was named Robert.  The information I have at this point indicates that this is Benjamin's family.   

 

"I have done research in Warren County and agree that John Hawkins had a son Benjamin.  He is mentioned in his grandfather's will and rec'd a slave Samson under his father's will.  In the Warren County records, Benjamin, or someone using his name, sells Samson.  Also the land he was to have rec'd under the various wills is  disposed of.  But at the times of these sales this Benjamin was named as living in the Warren/Granville County areas and our Benjamin was definitely living in Buncombe County, NC, per county records. In fact, in 1808 Benjamin bought property in Greenville County SC (where I live) and the deed clearly states that he is of Buncombe County NC and is a farmer.  This would co-incide with the death of John Hawkins of Warren County and the probate of his will."

Notes for Capt. William Austin Carr II:

The family of William Carr donated to Water Valley, MS the grounds on which stand the Water Valley Grammar School, a Masonic Lodge, and the Oak Hill Cemetery.  Donated land for the courthouse, a Railroad Hotel and the Right-of-Way for the Mississippi Central RR.

 

Was appointed Postmaster of Water Valley, Yalobusha Co., MS 27 Jul 1848.

 

Adapted from Godspeed's "Memoirs of Mississippi" :

"Water Valley began its growth in the early 1830s.  William A. Carr had the first store and blacksmith shop and was the first postmaster.  Lewis Lawshe, whose wife was a sister of William A. Carr, Jr.'s wife, also came about this time, as did E. F. Crisp.  Henry Carr and William Carr's land originally extended from Honeycutt to Velma.  They later sold land to Henry Hill.  The next to build after Hill was Mr.  Hendricks."

 

A festival is held in Water Valley, MS each August celebrating "Turkey Bill Carr", who as a child was captured by Indians, and who is said to have been one of the earliest white residents of Yalobusha County, MS.  He is identified based on Civil War records as William Perry Carr, b 1839-Jan1840 and d 1924 and a newphew of this William Carr.

      51.  Jeffersonia E.11 Hawkins (Benjamin10, Philemon9, Philemon8, <Unknown>7, <Unknown>6, John Sidney5, Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born 12 Jul 1813 in GA, and died 15 Nov 1861.  She married (1) Francis Bacon 27 Nov 1828 in Crawford Co., GA.  He was born Bef. 1809, and died Bef. 1839.  She married (2) Dr. Jeremiah G.

Notes for Jeffersonia E. Hawkins:

Jeffersonia claimed to be "the only legitimate daughter" of Benjamin Hawkins and Lavinia Downs, as they married after having the other children (and on what Benjamin thought was his death bed), and after Benjamin Hawkins had written his will.

 

Jeffersonia and her husbands, Francis Bacon and Jeremiah G. Harvey, and their son Francis Edmund Bacon, are all buried in the cemtery at Roberta, in Crawford Co., GA.

 

Jeffersonia and Francis Bacon were the subjects of a "complaint" by the other survivors and heirs of Benjamin Hawkins and Lavinia Downs, over the estate of Benjamin Hawkins.  It seems that much of the estate ended up in Jeffersonia and Francis' hands, and the other heirs sued to receive just compensation.   The outcome of the suit is not known to this writer, but the "complaint" can be found at:

"HAWKINS, JAMES BOYD." The Handbook of Texas Online.

http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/view/HH/fhacz.html

HAWKINS, JAMES BOYD (1813-1896). James Boyd Hawkins, early Texas planter, was born in Franklin County, North Carolina,  on December 27, 1813, the son of John D. Hawkins. He married Ariella Alston in 1834, and they had eight children.  Hawkins was educated in schools in Raleigh, North Carolina, studied at West Point for two years, and served as a colonel in the militia in Warren County, North Carolina. He took slaves from Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, to Lower Caney Creek, in Matagorda County, about 1845 or 1846 and raised cotton and sugar cane. He built an oven brick kiln and one of the largest sugar mills in Texas. In the mid-1850s he built the Hawkins Lake House, which was used by Maj. Gen. John B. Magruderq as his headquarters in December 1863 and January 1864. The house received a historic medallion from the Texas State Historic Survey in 1962. The United States Census of 1860 shows Hawkins with 101 slaves and property valued at more than $161,000. He reported having 800 improved acres, 8,000 bushels of corn, 225 bales of cotton, and 175 hogsheads of sugar. He also raised cattle and had the J. B. Hawkins brand registered in Matagorda County. Before the Civil War he  apparently owned a line of steamers that enabled him to ship goods to New York City. After the Civil War he owned 40,000 to 50,000 acres of land and was raising sugar cane, corn, cotton, and cattle with convict labor. He died in Matagorda County on May 11, 1896.

At the outset of the Civil War, two of the most prominent men in the state lived there: Colonel John Dabney McLemore and Major Frank Hawkins.

Two of his three wives, Mary Althea Clark and Lucy Clark are daughters of Louisa Norfleet and granddaughter of Marmaduke Norfleet.  Another Hawkins family, from Halifax Co., NC (that appears to descend from Isham Hawkins) includes the names of Louisa and Norfleet, and is not known to be closely related.  Research is continuing.

 

Children were born to each of his three wives.

Notes for Lieut. Gen. & Right Rev. Philemon Leonidas Polk:

The "Bishop of Tennessee", Confederate General.

 

Leonidas Polk entered (and resigned) from West Point in 1827. During the war he had fought at Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro, and his troops bore the brunt of the first day's fighting at Chickamauga. He was transferred to Alabama after questioning Braxton Bragg about a decision. Polk fought with the Confederate Army of the Tennessee during the Atlanta Campaign.

 

Called to the line by Lieutenant General William J. Hardee, the swarthy Cajun, Johnston, Polk, and others journeyed to Pine Mountain to see if the position could be maintained. Sherman had surrounded the rebels on three sides and Hardee was fearful of being enveloped by Uncle Billy. As they studied the position rebel infantry repeatedly warned them that Union artillery had the range of their position, but for some reason the generals chose to ignore the warning and continued in full sight of the Federal  batteries. Although mini-balls had come nearby, the big guns were under orders to conserve  ammunition and did not fire until Sherman rode up and ordered them to keep the observers under cover. The first shot scattered most of the generals, but Polk, for some reason known but to him, took his time.

 

A second round struck nearby and the third round entered Polk through an arm, passing through his

chest and exiting through the other arm. He was dead. Johnston stood over the man who had baptized him earlier in the campaign and cried. One of the few men who had little use for rebels, and even less for the clergy was Gen. Sherman, who in a tersely worded statement sent to Gen. Halleck, "We killed Bishop Polk yesterday and today the fighting goes well."

He graduated from Kentucky's Louisville Medical Institute in 1842 and in 1850 established a practice in Water Valley, Mississippi, where he married Georgia Virginia Lawshe. Woods moved to Texas in 1851. He settled first at Bastrop and in 1853 moved to San Marcos, where he established himself as a planter. At the outbreak of the Civil Warqv Woods raised a company of cavalry, primarily from Hays County, later to become Company A of the Thirty-sixth Texas Cavalry regiment. This regiment was mustered into Confederate service at Camp Woods on Salado Creek on March 22, 1862, and Woods was elected colonel when the regiment was organized. The Thirty-sixth (often called the Thirty-second) Texas Cavalry regiment was recruited within a fifty-mile radius of San Antonio. Nathaniel Benton, a brother-in-law of generals Ben and Henry E. McCulloch served as the regiment's lieutenant colonel. W. P. Woods, one of the colonel's seven children, served as a trooper in his father's regiment. After instruction in drill and tactics at Camp Clark near San Marcos in July and August 1862, the regiment patrolled the area around Fredericksburg, then the scene of considerable unrest due to the large number of Union sympathizers among its German citizens. Other companies of the regiment were posted along the Rio Grande, with headquarters at Fort Ringgold in Rio Grande City, and along the Gulf Coast at Port Lavaca, with the general responsibility for maintaining order in the Corpus Christi-Brownsville-Eagle Pass triangle, protecting the ports, keeping Mexico trade open, and preventing deserters and draft evaders from crossing the international border. In June 1863 elements of the regiment were moved up the coast as far as Indianola in response to the threat of invasion from Union general Nathaniel P. Banks. On July 12 Woods was given command of the First Cavalry Brigade of Gen. Hamilton P. Bee's division, which included Woods and Charles L. Pyron's Second Texas Cavalry regiments. On September 9 the regiment was ordered dismounted. It was to be moved by rail to Beaumont, and its horses, the personal property of the men, were preempted by the Confederate government. Woods protested the order and refused to obey it. After marching and countermarching the Texas coast for several months in response to invasion alarms, 157 of Woods's troopers deserted on the night of February 1, 1864. Granted thirty days leave, Woods followed his deserters to their homes and returned with them to his camp. On February 20 the highly unpopular dismounting order was finally executed, but on February 28 the regiment was ordered to Louisiana for the Red River campaign, and remounts were hastily procured. The regiment marched for Richard Taylor's army on March 12, arriving at Pleasant Hill, Louisiana, on April 9, too late for the battles of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill. They were attached to Gen. Thomas Green's cavalry division and immediately marched for Blair's Landing in pursuit of Banks's defeated army. On April 12 Woods and his men received their baptism of fire at the battle of Blair's Landing, where General Green was killed. They skirmished daily with the retreating federals through Grand Ecore, fought a determined holding action at Monett's Ferry, and continued a running fight with the enemy until a spirited action at Yellow Bayou on May 18 in which Woods was wounded halted the chase. A rifle ball entered Woods's left hand and traversed his forearm, exiting his elbow. Although he returned to service after only two weeks of convalescent leave, he never fully regained the function of his left arm.

 

In the reorganization that followed Green's death and Bee's removal from command, Woods's regiment became part of Xavier B. Debray's brigade of John A. Wharton's division. During the next seven months the Thirty-sixth Texas Cavalry remained in Louisiana, patrolling the Atchafalaya River from Alexandria to Opelusas. In February 1865 the regiment returned to Texas, and at Houston on May 21, 1865, by order of Gen. John B. Magruder, it divided its public property and disbanded. Following the war Woods returned to San Marcos to resume his medical practice and farming. He was elected to the Constitutional Convention of 1866. Upon the death of his first wife, Woods married Ella Reeves Ogletree in 1874; the couple had five children. Woods died in San Marcos on January 27, 1898, and is buried there.

Notes for Jeffersonia Elizabeth Lawshe:

One record says born Water Valley, Yalobusha, MS.  Since her younger brother's record says GA, I will use GA.

Bur. Concordia, Bolivar, MS.

 

Notes for Thomas Jefferson Davidson:

He likely was living with or visiting his first cousin in 1850: "The 1850 Federal Census of Rusk County, Texas household number 721 list J. F. Davidson, 40 male with wife Mary, 35 both born in Tennessee, son Otey, 3, born in Miss. and Thomas J. Davidson, 23, born in Tenn."

 

He returned to Water Valley, where in 1854 he married.  He was for a time the postmaster at Water Valley.

 

In 1860, Thomas Jefferson Davidson divided his time between managing his late father's estate and continuing to be a partner with Captain Woods in a large store in Water Valley.

 

He was the executor of his father's estate, and for several years managed the farm.  He served in the Confederate Army in Tennessee.  In February, 1862 Fort Henry on the Tennessee River fell, followed by Fort Donelson on the Cumberland with its garrison of 1300 men, six Mississippi regiments among them.   Tom was among the prisoners.  He was taken to Fort Warren.

 

He moved his family to Rosedale, Bolivar, MS.  The family story says the mansion by the Mississippi River was lost in a flood, practically bankrupting the family.  While living there his wife died.  For some time after this tragedy, the family resided in Water Valley at the home of Rev. Edward Davidson and his wife Brank, as recounted in the memoirs of Helen Brank Davidson, their daughter:

"She speaks again of the house, the three rooms which, in 1774, were occupied "by my mother's brother Tom and his children.  He had two boys, Tom (b.1862) and Lewis (b.1859), and three girls, Cousin Ruth (b.1855), Cousin Mary (b.1857), and Jeffersonia (b.1865).  I have no recollection of their mother Jeffersonia Laushe [Lawshe] (b.1836). She died before I was born, but these children were members of our family."

But Helen was four years old when her uncle Tom died on April 14, 1874.  He probably did not live with them at all, though his children did.  According to records of the Yalobusha County Chancery Court, his children appeared before the court on May 2, petitioning that their uncle, Edward, be appointed their guardian, and Edward made bond in the amount of $10,000.

That same day Edward and his brother Frank petitioned that they be appointed administrators of Tom's estate since he left no will; that he had died possessed of a house and lot in Water Valley and 1/3 interest in a parcel of land in Bolivar County, 10 head of horses, three mules, 10 head of cattle, and some $600 in notes.

On June 3, the Davidson brothers were given court permission to sell the stock.  They reported Tom's personal property sale and an inventory of his money and debts on November 28.

 

Dec. 1872, E. C. Davidson & W. S. B. & Helen J. Frazier, all of Yal. Co., MS, being joint heirs with C. R. Davidson, T. J. Davidson, A. B. Davidson, D. W. Davidson, M. M. Davidson, E. R. Hale & J. W. Davidson, M. A. Davidson - heirs of J. C. Davidson, decd sell their share of "The Matthews place", estate of P.M. Davidson, decd. to Thos. J. Davidson.

 

In 1872, several years after his wife, Jeffie had died, there was a suit by Moses J. Wicks vs Thomas J. Davidson for partition of lands in Bolivar Co., MS.  By 1874 court records acknowledged his death, and the suit resumed against his heirs.  J. F. Davidson is mentioned in several of these records.   John Franklin Davidson was a cousin of Thomas J. Davidson who was a Physician and who was Mayor of Water Valley, MS in 1870.  "Mary M., wife of J. F. Davidson, has an interest in the land as an heir of P. M. Davidson, decd. & asks to be added to lists of defdts.  Suit dismissed at Complaintants' cost in Oct 1875."

 

The childrens' guardian was E. C. Davidson (Edward Chaffin Davidson) of Yalobusha Co., as shown in 1875 court records of Bolivar Co., MS.   By June, 1878, a citation was sent to E. C. Davidson, guardian, and was mailed in June 1878 to Moses J. Wicks, Los Angeles, CA.  Fannie Davidson & Ruth C. Davidson were listed "of Whitesboro, TX."

 

In 1880: E. C. Davidson, Grdn., et al vs M. J. Wallace et al: E. C. Davidson, grdn of Ruth C., Mary S., Lewis S., T. J. & Jeffie Davidson, minor heirs of Thos. J. Davidson, decd. & J. F. Hamilton & Fannie Hamilton all of MS vs M. J. Wallace of MS and Amanda C. Cole & her hub. E. A. Cole of Tunica Co., MS seek partition of lands.  Complts own 1/3 undivided interest & defdts own the other 2/3rds.  Filed 8 Nov. 1880.  References are made to CC Pkt.#381 - J. M. Wallace et al vs J.F. Davidson et al. ; J. C. Sillers, G. W. Bellamy, J. S. Gant are [were?] appointed Commissioners to partition the land 19 Apr 1881.  They allot 1/3 to minor Davidsons, 1/3 to Wallace, 1/3 to Amanda E. Cole 12 Nov. 1880.

Notes for Calvin Jones Hunt:

Or born 9 Dec 1829.  Marietta became a town in 1834.

 

Georgia 1850 census gives age as 21. Mississippi 1860 census gives age as 27. Jesse Carson and Calvin Jones were likely twins and their mother (1st wife) died in childbirth, after which Thomas remarried to Elizabeth (Gaddis?).  Was named co-executor in Father, Thomas Hunt's will.

 

Raised in Marietta, GA, went to Water Valley, MS to work as a blacksmith; married the boss's daughter and set up housekeeping on a cotton plantation near Water Valley.

 

Private in Co. F, 15th Regt. Miss. Infantry, organized 1861, mustered into Confederate Army June 1861. T. B. Hale was also a member of this regiment, as were several Carr men.  Only fought in Battle of Shilogh, 6 & 7 April 1862.  Fought in the peach orchard, was in the break-through of Union lines and capture of General Prnetiss and 2200 union troops.  After Shiloh he was put on detached service as a blacksmith for the remainder of the war.

 

"He had all the buttons shot off his coat, but no wounds at Shiloh.  In 1864 a Union cavalry force of 25,000 let Memphis and went down through Mississippi across Alabama to Georgia, where they joined General Sherman in Atlanta.  They burned Calvin's plantation, including all buildings, rail fences around it, looted the house and took everything they could use, burning the rest.  They forced Grandmother Hunt and children to stand by in the road and dressed the Negro women slaves in her silk clothes and put them on horses behind them and rode away laughing. Papa was about four years old.  Grandma also had a baby in her arms.  So grandmother walked to Water Valley and stayed with her relatives until the end of the War the following May (1865).  The only things they had were the clothes they were wearing.

"When Calvin Hunt arrived back at the old plantation there was nothing lefft, so he walked into Water Valley and found his family living with her relatives.  Since he had nothing left but his blacksmith skill, he walked to the railroad shops of the Mississippi Central, which was the northern terminus of the railroad when the War started.  Grandmother Hunt died in 1869.  He kept the family together until the railroad was built north to old Fillmoer, KY and later a couple miles north to East Cairo, KY.  He left the children with relatives and came to old Fillmore in 1872 and met and married Ann Rich, an orphan who was a half-sister living with Grandmother Rollins.  He bought some land north of Wickliffe and built a house and went back to Mississippi to get the children.  Aunt Georgia, the eldest, had married a railroad engineer, Jasper Powell, and remained in Water Valley.  He quit the railroad and farmed.  He had three boys and two girls by his first marriage, two boys and one girl by the second.  The oldest, Walter, was born and just lived a few days when he went back to Water Valley to get the other children."

Percy James Hunt, 1979

 

He was found in the 1900 Pemiscot, MO census.

 

Calvin's application for a Civil War Pension in the State of La. and it revealed the following:

He advised he was in Water Valley, Miss at the surrender.  He further stated he was a prisoner at Atlanta, Ga. and escaped and returned to his Command.  He advised he had lived in La. about two years and he made this pension application on 8/30/1904.  At the time of this application he advised he was not married that he was a Widower.  He said he had no family except his sister-in-law in La..  He gave the name of Benjamin Harvey, Water Valley, Miss and Dr. T.J. Carr, Coffeeville, Miss, as two comrades that could vouch for his service.  He gave his address as Coushatta, Red River Parish La..

 

The War Department records confirmed he was a member of Co. F, 15 th Miss Infantry, CSA; enlisted 5/26/1861, at Corinth, Miss and he was present for duty with the command 8/31/1864, the date of the last muster roll on file.
