"The Ridgelys, of "Hampton," are descended from Hon. Robert Ridgely, of St. Inigoes, St. Mary's Co., Md., whose name first appears on the records of the Province in 1666. He was a barrister, located in Maryland about 1665, and is believed to have come from Lincolnshire, England. In 1666 he was Clerk of the Council, and attested a true copy of the commission issued by Cecilius Calvert to his son Charles Calvert, to be Governor of Maryland. His name again appears on the records, Jan. 19, 1670, and June 19, 1671, the archives states that Sir William Talbot, Baronet, nephew of Cecilius Calvert, who was then Secretary of the Province, keeper of the records, etc., and Chief Judge of the Provincial Court of Probate, was obliged to return to England on business, and as it was necessary that the Baronet should be represented officially in Maryland during his absence in the Old World, the representative chosen by him was Robert Ridgely, of St. Inigoes. Practically thus appointed Secretary of the Province, he discharged the manifold duties of this office until 1673; was sworn Clerk of the Lower House of the Assembly March 27, 1671, and served this office until Nov. 1, 1781. He was a distinguished attorney, and was Attorney General of Maryland; received numbers of valuable land grants, and acquired a large landed estate in Calvert, Somerset and other counties; m.

In 1820 Limestone Co., AL census, there are two Samuel Sloans. A Samuel
Sloan appears in the 1830 Jackson Co., TN census for the first time corresponding with the disappearance of the younger Samuel from Limestone Co., AL. In the 1850 TN (Jackson Co.) census, a Samuel Sloan appears in the district next to our family's Samuel Sloan (b. ca 1827). Several other young Sloans appear, all of similar ages, corresponding to the ages of the Samuel Sloan children of the 1830 census, some born in Alabama, some born in TN. Another clue is that Mark Sloan has a daughter,
Perthenia, and the Samuel from Limestone Co., AL has a sister, Parthenia.

Notes


COL ROBERT PAXTON TRABUE. b. Jan 1, 1824, Adair Co. Ky; d. Feb 2, 1863, Adair Co., Ky. He was a Captain in the war with Mexico. He was a Colonel in the Confederate States Army and commanded the First Kentucky Brigade at Shiloh. He exhibited great skill and bravery and was recommended for promotion to the rank of General, but died of pneumonia. He was an attorney & practiced in Mississippi & Louisiana.


http://fly.hiwaay.net/~jemcgee/index.html 49th Alabama (CSA) During the Civil War: Also researching this unit that included volunteers from Madison, Marshall, Jackson, DeKalb, Dallas, and Blount counties of Alabama. It was initially known as Hale's 31st Alabama but changed to the 49th Alabama shortly before the Battle of Shiloh. The unit was organized near Nashville, TN in January, 1862. They participated in the Battles of Shiloh, Corinth, Vicksburg, and eventually surrendered with the fall of Port Hudson, LA.


'The regiment [49th Alabama] acted with praiseworthy gallantry in this action.'
Col. Robert Trabue, the Battle of Shiloh, April 6 and 7, 1862.


The gunners of Stanford's Mississippi Battery, had just heard the sound of their guns for the first time. Here, on the green fields around Shiloh Church, near Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee, they had received their "baptism by fire." wrote Sergeant Brown, "an officer came up and ordered us to the support of Gen'l Breckinridge, as the enemy was concentrating in his front."


One of Stanford's guns, disabled the day before, had been sent from the field, leaving the captain with five working pieces. He quickly had his battery rolling toward the front. "We went about a mile, and took a position near the centre," Magee remembered. The battery unlimbered amid a battle line drawn up at almost the same spot from which they had fired as part of the Ruggles Line the day before. The Mississippians were about a mile and three-quarters southwest of Pittsburg Landing. Stanford's Mississippians took a position supporting Colonel Winfield Statham's and Colonel Robert Trabue's brigades of Breckinridge's corps.


As the fighting intensified, Stanford's battery was sent forward into a clearing known as Duncan Field to counter a Union battery that had opened fire on the Confederates. Beyond Duncan Field, shielded from view by the trees beyond the Sunken Road, was Captain Joseph Bartlett's Battery G, 1st Ohio Light Artillery. "The only sign we could see of them was the smoke rising from the bushes where they hid," wrote Sergeant Brown.


Captain Stanford opened fire on the Union guns at once. This, Brown recalled, drew an immediate response. The Rebel battery found itself enveloped in a hellish maelstrom. "From those bushes came such a succession of deafening peals of thunder as I had never heard before, seeming to almost lift us from the ground," Brown remembered. "A mad storm of shot, shell, and canister swept by us. The flash, the roar, and the iron storm continued to come without intermission."


This firestorm stiffened the Mississippians' resolve, according to Brown: "We were far from submitting quietly from the fierce torrent of their anger, and I have no doubt that our guns made their position nearly as disagreeable as ours." Raising a lusty battle cry, the Confederate infantry passed through the artillery line and charged. An unbroken roar of musketry greeted the grayclad troops as they drew near the woods beyond Duncan Field. "The storm that swept through the thick undergrowth could not be withstood," Brown wrote. "The line that charged came back in confusion, so deadly was the reception they had met, and so demoralized by the shock, they could not rally around our battery."
