Notes


A Lost Cause, But an Honorable One
by Lewis Regenstein


The controversy over the Confederate battle flag and what it symbolizes continues to rage. But it is rarely if ever explained why many decent people of good will are so proud of their Confederate ancestry.


Basically, it is because our ancestors showed amazing courage, honor, and valor, enduring incredible hardships, against overwhelming and often hopeless odds, in fighting, for their homeland Ė not for slavery, as is so often said, but for their families, homes, and country.


Put simply, most Confederate soldiers felt they were fighting because an invading army from the North was trying to kill them, burn their homes, and destroy their cities. And anyone with family who fought to defend the South, as mine did, cannot help but appreciate the dire circumstances our ancestors encountered.



Near the end of the War Between the States, my great grandfather, Andrew Jackson Moses, who ran away from school to become a Confederate scout, at 16 rode out to defend his hometown of Sumter, South Carolina, as part of a hastily formed local militia. Approaching rapidly was a unit of Sherman's army, which had just burned Columbia and most everything else in its path, and Sumter expected similar treatment.


Along with a few other teenagers, old men, invalids, and wounded from the local hospital, Sumterís rag-tag defenders amazingly were able to hold off these battle-seasoned veterans, Potterís Raiders, for an hour-and-a-half, at the cost of several lives. (Jack got away with a price on his head, and Sumter was not burned after all. But some buildings were, and there were documented instances of murder, rape, and arson by the Yankees, including the torching of our familyís 196 bales of cotton.)

John RANKIN

1 Feb 1792 - 26 Oct 1876

ID Number: I84249

  • RESIDENCE: Mecklenburg and Lincoln Co. NC
  • BIRTH: 1 Feb 1792
  • DEATH: 26 Oct 1876
  • BURIAL: Goshen Grove Cemetery
  • RESOURCES: See: notes

Family 1 : Sarah FARRAR
  1.  Alexander N. RANKIN C.S.A.

Notes


"John "Butch" Rankin and Sarah lived in Lincoln County, NC residing in what is today the Hickory Grove area of Gaston County where they farmed the land. John purchased another 100 acres of land on 1 Sept 1830. On 29 Jan 1846, William Rankin granted, for the sum of $5, six hundred and five acres to John Rankin, Isaac Holland and William ReidóWilliamís eldest son and son-in-laws. It has been estimated that Johnís total acreage totalled between 300 and 400.
According to the Family Bible of her son-in-law, John S. Moody, Sarah died in June 1834. By and after 1850, John lived in the household of his son-in-law Charles Burke Abernethey though the land belonged to John Rankin. On 18 Oct 1869, an article of agreement was made between C.B. Abernathy and wife Eliza of the first part and John Rankin of the second part that they would agree to "support and maintain him through life" in exchange for title to the 115 acres "on which he [John] now lives [brackets added]."


Older members of the family remember that a headstone at one time existed in the Goshen Grove Cemetery stating Johnís date of birth as 1 Feb 1792 and his date of death as 26 Oct 1876; this last date of death is supported by the Bible mentioned above. Both John and Sarah are at rest in the Goshen Grove Cemetery."


"His will, dated 27 Mar 1874 and probated 3 Nov 1876 in Gaston County, reads as follows:
I, John Rankin of Gaston County, North Carolina on this the 27 day of March 1874 make and publish this my last will and testament.


First, I direct that my Executor shall pay all my just debts and funeral expenses and put up a headstone to my grave.


Second, I will my clothes to William Rankin my grandson and my bed to Nancy Rankin my granddaughter


Third, I will all the balance of my estate to be divided as follows: to Margaret Moody one fourth, to Eliza Abernathy one fourth, to William and Nancy Rankin one fourth and to my son Alexander Rankinís children one fourth.


I direct my Executor to sell my lands and divide the proceeds in four equal parts.


I appoint my Brother Richard Rankin my Executor to do this my last deed in witness whereof I set my hand seal.


John X Rankin his mark


T.F. Wilson
Hampton Padgett


John Rankin was also a soldier. The Charlotte Democrat, at his passing on 26 Oct 1876, refers to him as "John Rankin, soldier of the War of 1812." John Rankin was a man of property though not an immense amountóperhaps 300 acres, most of which was granted to him by his father long before William Rankin died. This same land was passed down to his daughters and son, Alexander, through various gifts and his will. John was evidently well-thought of in his community as the Mecklenburg Jeffersonian, on the occasion of his daughter Margaretís wedding, referred to him as "John Rankin, Esquire."


John and Sarah Farrar Rankinís children:
1. Margaret A. Rankin . 'Moody'; . (Rankin);ó b. 10 March 1819 d. 10 June 1916 (further)
2. Alexander N. Rankin .;ó b. 1824 d. 21 July 1862 (further)
3. Sarah Eliza Rankin ó b. 1826 d. 30 Aug 1892 (further)


The following grandchildren are also specifically named in this will and are the children of Sarah Eliza Rankin Abernethey. These two children are specifically named Rankin, however, and were born out of wedlock:


1. William Rankin
2. Nancy Rankin


The executor of Johnís will was his "brother Richard Rankin" as the will states and so we know that John was the son of William, the son of Samuel Rankin."
