Earl Cleaverton YATES

He was one year old when he died.


MILITARY RECORDS: He served in the Revolutionary War pension #S32537. Solder was living with his father George Story in Spartanburg District, South Carolina during the war. He lived in South Carolina until December 1817 when he started for Alabama where he lived on Canoe Creek a branch of the Coosa River in Alabama and in October 1820 he moved to Greene county, Alabama where he applied for a pension 20 September 1832.

PROBATE RECORDS: His father George Storey left the following to him: 4thly I give and bequeath unto my Son, Henry Story, a negro woman named Cloe.

HISTORY: In late 1818 Henry moved from Faiforest, South Carolina to the Coosa River Basin. In 1818 there was a economic depression, especially in the Carolinas. At about the same time, Alabama was admitted as a territory and the following year it was admitted to statehood. The fertile soil of south-centeral Alabama was right for cotton and the cotton gin invented in 1792 by Whitney was coming into its own. William Williamson moved with his father to Alabama, though he had received a Revolutionary War pension and obtained a State land grant next to his father in South Carolina he decided to move south. He settled in Pickens County but later died in Greene County. Sirlinus Alonzo was born to William Williamson and they moved to the Leif River in Smith County, Mississippi. This is where William Williamson died and was buried. Though James Walter was born in Greene County in 1854, he moved with his parents to Smith County in 1860. In 1874 he moved to Copiah County and in 1884 he married Annie Owen Bridwell. Many have questioned why Annie married a blacksmith/wheelwright. Her father was a newspaper founder (the Revelle, which still exist today) an editor, a lawer (he graduated from Union College, just outside of Albany, New York) a Major in the Confederate Army and a Judge. Annie was an educated musician and used to the finer things in life. Perpaps because he seemed to be an up and coming business man and because Judge moved to Beauregard about the same time. The attraction to the area must have been the Wesson Mills. Just before the 1893 depression they moved to Brownswood, Texas where my father, Walter Wren was born. This would have been in 1889. An amusing story is that my grandmother named my father after a Texas Wren which nested outside her bedroom during her "confinement". They did not remain in Texas long. The weather was too uncertain and Nathaniel suffered from the dust. Uncle Edgar Lee Storey was born at Wesson in 1894. After this move to Beauregard where Uncle William Rufus was born. My father was in the First World War and went to France. There he sustained a leg wound and returned home. For a period he and Uncle Lon (L. A. Storey) worked in Bude, Mississippi as car builders. This is where Uncle Lon met and married Lillian Allgood. Four of the brothers opened a business in Wesson and it continued until well into the depression. Uncle Edgar was always a farmer and grew truck crops for the New Prleons market. Uncle Lon was killed by an explosion in 1932. The business continued until Uncle Nat, who had married Grace Vaughn and raised a family, living in Wesson died of an accute Appendicitis. With the depression and with my father having to support three families he was forced to close the business and retire to a property that he had purchased next to my Grandfather (James Walter Storey).
