"The Riddle and the Knight : In Search of Sir John Mandeville, the World's Greatest Traveler
by Giles Milton: "Sir John Mandeville, a medieval English knight, was either one of history's greatest explorers or one of its greatest liars, depending on how one reads the pages of his Travels. Christopher Columbus took his words as a veritable guidebook, using it, Giles Milton writes, to convince the Spanish crown to fund his American voyages. The Victorians were not so kind, dismissing the wanderer--who, after all, wrote that in the Indian Ocean "there is a race of great stature, like giants ... they have one eye only, in the middle of their foreheads" --as an uncritical fabulist at best, a charlatan at worst.


Giles Milton, a student of exploration history, gives us reasons aplenty to question Mandeville's accuracy at points, but he is inclined to think that the knight actually did see at least some of the things he reported in his enormously influential book. Tracing Mandeville's trail to the Middle East and beyond, he considers the historical realities that underlie Mandeville's tales, from the gems that lie strewn among the reeds of Indonesia (which Milton guesses might be crystal-like secretions from bamboo plants) to the fabulous Christian kingdom of Prester John somewhere far out on the plains of Mongolia (where, Milton reminds us, Nestorian Christians were once common). His conclusion, well argued in the course of this witty and delightful book, is that although Mandeville is not always taken literally, he really did go crusading off in distant lands, and he certainly deserves to be rediscovered today, not least for what his work tells us about the medieval mind. Readers new to Mandeville will find this a spirited introduction, and those already fond of The Travels will enjoy following Milton's parallel voyages." --Gregory McNamee "

Mary Anna MORRISON

1831 - 1915

ID Number: I71869

  • OCCUPATION: President for life of Stonewall Jackson Chapter #220 Charlotte, NC
  • RESIDENCE: Charlotte, NC and Lexington, VA
  • BIRTH: 1831, North Carolina
  • DEATH: 1915, Charlotte, North Carolina
  • RESOURCES: See: Bio notes [S2744]

Family 1 : Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" JACKSON C.S.A.
  1.  Julia Laura JACKSON

Notes


MARY ANNA MORRISON JACKSON'S GRAVE MARKED:
On Sunday afternoon, July 20, the Virginia Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy gathered in Lexington, Virginia's, Stonewall Jackson Cemetery to lay a UDC grave marker at the final resting place of one of their own, Mary Anna Morrison Jackson, the widow of Confederate General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson.


After Jackson's first wife, Elinor Junkin Jackson, died in childbirth, Jackson married Mary Anna Morrison, the daughter of a Presbyterian minister from Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1857. The union was to produce Jackson's only heir, a daughter whom he named Julia after his mother. Julia was born just a few months before Jackson's death following his accidental wounding at the Battle of Chancellorsville in 1863.


After the general's death, Mrs. Jackson returned to her native North Carolina with Julia, who subsequently married William Christian and gave birth to a son and a daughter. Mrs. Jackson, who never remarried and wore widow's weeds for the remainder of her life, took on the task of raising her two grandchildren following Julia's untimely death in her late twenties.


In 1898, Mrs. Jackson organized and became the first president of Stonewall Jackson Chapter #220 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in Charlotte. Elected president for life, Mrs. Jackson presided over the activities of the chapter until failing health forced her to relinquish her duties. A fixture at reunions of Confederate veterans throughout the South in the years following the war, she remained honorary president of the chapter and an honorary president of General until her death in 1915.


Mrs. Jackson's body was returned to Lexington to lie next to her husband in the town cemetery, which now bears his name. In a year that has seen the New York Division place UDC markers on the graves of Varina Howell Davis, Winnie Davis, and Margaret Hays Davis in Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery, the Virginia Division decided it was time to honor their sister Mary Anna Jackson in like fashion. With the permission of the North Carolina Division, to which Mrs. Jackson belonged, the July 20 ceremony was arranged.


An honor guard provided by the Harry Gilmor and Fincastle Rifles Camps of the SCV present the colors at the gravesite as UDC past President General Mrs. Francis S. Palmer and Stonewall Jackson Chapter #220 president Mrs. M.E. Terwilliger look on.


The invocation is offered by James I. Robertson. Shown at right is Mrs. Mark R. Allen, president of the Virginia Division of the UDC.


The ceremony opened with an invocation offered by honorary associate UDC member and Jackson biographer Dr. James I. Robertson, a professor at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and an Episcopal deacon. Following Dr. Roberston, Ms. Joanna Smith, curator of the Stonewall Jackson House in Lexington, spoke on the life of Mary Anna Morrison Jackson, and Col. Robert F. Hunter, historian of the Lexington Presbyterian Church where the Jacksons worshipped, talked about the couple's religious life. Mrs. M.E. Terwilliger, current president of Stonewall Jackson Chapter #220 in Charlotte, North Carolina, spoke about Mrs. Jackson's relationship with the UDC in general and the Stonewall Jackson Chapter in particular.


The UDC grave marker for Mary Anna Morrison Jackson is unveiled by Mrs. Donald N. Bodell (center), chairman of the Virginia Division's Grave Marker Committee, with the assistance of Mrs. Francis S. Palmer (left) and Mrs. Mark R. Allen (right).


Following the unveiling of the grave marker, wreaths were laid at the grave by Mrs. Francis S. Palmer, past President General of the UDC; Mrs. Mark R. Allen, Virginia Division President; Mrs. John R. Boothe, Recording Secretary of the North Carolina Division; Mrs. M.E. Terwilliger, president of Stonewall Jackson Chapter #220 in Charlotte, North Carolina; and Miss Vicki K. Heilig, District of Columbia Division, on behalf of the Florida Division's Mary Anna Jackson Chapter.


A closing benediction was offered by Dr. Robertson; following the retiring of the colors, the crowd moved on to VMI for the burial of Gen. Jackson's warhorse, Little Sorrel.

Notes


Census: 1782-98 TAXLIST Hanover Co, VA


Ragland, Martha Father: Ragland, John Ragland Mother: Burfort, Anne, Birth Date: 1710 City: Hanover County: State: VA


"Most of my data from Jennie Tinsley, Tinsley Genealogy and Collateral Branches, and a Tinsley Chart in possession of Craig Bennett, shows Martha Ragland (Raglan, Rhaglan)b.1720- daughter of John Ragland and Anne Dudley, granddaughter of John Rhaglan and Anne Beaufort m. in 1742 Col. Thomas Tinsley, Thomas Tinsley II son of Thomas Tinsley I, not Thomas Tinsley son of Thomas Tinsley and Frances Bickley (Brickley).


HOWEVER, in the Tinsley Genealogy I have, a part on Cornelius Tinsley, (3rd son of Thomas Tinsley I), shows the connection with Thomas Tinsley + Frances Bickley to Thomas Tinsley + Martha Ragland. This line of decent was supplied to Mrs. Shelby by Mrs. R. A. Brock, a genealogist of Richmond, VA.


I am trying to get more information on this, it appears to me that the dates for Martha Ragland agree better with Thomas Tinsley son of Thomas and Frances Bickley. The information on Martha Ragland is from "Virginia History Mag. Vol.5, page 200 and Saunders Early Settlers page 390."
