Descendants of Immigrant Dinkins



First Generation



1. Immigrant Dinkins .1

General Notes: Much of this genealogy is taken from the Leonardo Andreas Collection. The Dinkins folder contains 132 pages of information, some of which is described here:

Genealogical folders in the Leonardo Andreas Collection : collection of the late Leonardo Andrea. Manuscript, typescript, and printed materials collection in the possession of Connie Anrea, Columbia, South Carolina. Contents of folders vary from a few leaves to ca. 300 leaves and may contain genealogical correspondence, transcripts of Bible records, transcripts from public records, clippings from printed materials, pedigree charts, family group sheets, genealogical sketches, etc. Folders may also contain material on related families. Families are primarily from South Carolina but include some from North Carolina, Virginia, and elsewhere, especially in the Southern states.

This collection is available at most any LDS Family History Center on microfiche.

An exact copy of material furnished by Mrs. Mabel Cameron Stephenson, of Moorehead, Miss., grand-daughter of James A. Dinkins, great-grand-daughter of Lewis Dinkins, and great-great-grand-daughter of James Dinkins and Lucy Kendrick, to her first cousin, Miss Mary D. Parsons, and reproduced by her.

"Copies of a book which was the property of my uncle, John William Armstrong, in the Annual 1717
"David Armstrong

"We landed at Charleston on the ninth and tenth of the tenth month in the annual of 1717. My brother Henry, my brother Robert and my near kin, Rufus and George Armstrong, also then kame our strong fren Thomas Dinkins, James Dinkins, besides John Dinkins.

"We were alone. We possessed in entire sufficient one was value. My brother David was useful with building boat. My fren Thos. Dinkins the same.

"On the nine month, 1718, my brother Robert and my fren James Dinkins bade leave for Ireland. On the six month 1719--May God bless the morning-- they kame and my love companion and chil Margaret and also kame back James Dinkins & Robert with also females 1723 annual we again walk to Mecklenberg Co., Carolina. Sens we left Londonderry just four annual."

"John Rufus Dinkins."

This man left Mecklenberg County and went to Anson, where he died. It is not known whether he was born in Londonderry, Ireland or went there from Wales, but I believe he must have been born there. The Dinkins family originally came from Wales.

In addition to his sons, William, Sr., Micajah and Samuel, Thomas Dinkins is believed to have been the father of Joshua Dinkins, who also owned land in Craven County and in Richland County, S.C. This Joshua was the father of John, Lewis, and Thomas Dinkins, whose names, along with his, appear in the Revolutionary Index in S.C. along with those of his brother, William, Sr.; his son, William, Jr.; and William, Jr.'s sons, Asa and Samuel. This Joshua also had other children -- quite a large family.

"Copies of a Testament belonging to Margaret Armstrong at Good Hope neighborhood Church June 17, 1747. Margaret Armstrong Dinkins was the daughter of John William Armstrong and Ann, his wife, was a Kendrick.
"John Rufus Dinkins, son of James Dinkins and Margaret Armstrong, was born the 21 of May 1748.
"David Kendirck Dinkins, son also, was born June 3, 1751.
"Eliza Ann Dinkins, daughter of same, born April 20, 1751.
"Robert. Armstrong Dinkins was born Jan. 17, 1753, son of same.
"Sara Margaret Dinkins, daughter of same, was born Dec. 26, 1756."

(RCL Note: I do not know how she originally produced this material or the items which follow, but Mrs. Stevenson stated that she believed the original research was done by a brother of Bishop Chas. B. Galloway, who lived on the Mississippi Coast. Mary Dinkins Parson.)

"The following is partly true and partly from tradition:

"In the middle centuries there lived in the south of Scotland a great chief, known as 'Johnnie the Strong,' who had a large following of young men, who took up arms against the crown. There were a hardy, rugged race, accustomed to all kinds of exposure and danger. They set a defiance all laws and for many years lived in the low lands, a terror to the government. 'Johnnie the Strong' sent impudent messages to the king and challenged him to mortal combat.
He was loved by all his people who regarded him as greater than the king. Tradition states he at one time met hand to hand, a score of Troopers who attempted to capture him, but he defended himself against them all, killing two and wounding several others, after which he was called 'Johnnie the Strong. '

"John William Armstrong it is believed was the great grandson of 'Johnnie the Strong.' This is supposed to be fact, his Grandfather was betrayed, surprised and killed, as tradition has it, that 'Johnnie the Strong' was enticed by his camp and killed by the King while he was being held by soldiers of the King.

"James, Thos. & John Dinkins, it is supposed, were Welshmen who joined the Armstrongs in Ireland, having been driven from the country, so tradition states, because of disloyalty to the crown. Tradition further states that they were called 'Devil in the Bush,' which implies they were outlaws, it is claimed on account of the King imposing restrictions on their hunting privileges. Anyway, the brothers came to America with the Armstrongs, whose children intermarried."

It is quite likely that from these descendants of the Immigrant Thomas Dinkins, sprang all those who bear the Dinkins name in South Carolina.

Up to this writing - Nov. 7, 1952 -- this story just about covers all the information I have on S.C. Dinkins that would be of value to Sina Dinkins Mohr.

Here is another version of the same information:

'We landed at Charleston on the nine and tenth of the tenth Mo. in the Annual 1717. My Brother Henry, my brother Robert, and my near kin Rufus George Armstrong, also there came our strong fren Thomas Dinkins, James Dinkins, beside John Dinkins. We were alone. We possesses in entire sufficient one was value. My brother David was useful with building boat. My fren Thomas Dinkins the same. On the nine Mo. 1718 my brother Robert and my friend James Dinkins bad leave for Ireland. On the six Mo. 1719. May God bless the morning ther kame and my love companion and chil Margaret an also kame back James Dinkins and Robert with also families....1723 annual we agan walk to Mekeilenbur (Mecklenburg?) County, Carolina. Sens we left Londonderry just foor annual.....' (Original in the possession of James Dinkins, Memphis, Tennessee.)

"Statement of John R. Dinkins. "Copies of Testament belonging to my father, James Dinkins, who was the son of James Dinkins of Macklenburg County, N.C. who emmigrated from the Londonderry together with his two brothers John and Thomas in the years 1717 and 1719....in company with John William Armstrong, Robert Armstrong, Henry Armstrong, and a cousin Rufus George Armstrong. [signed John R. Dinkins]"

"James Dinkins was married to Margaret Armstrong at Good-Hope neighborhood church, June 17, 1747. Margaret Armstrong Dinkins was the daughter of John William Armstrong, (great grandson of John of Gilnockie) and Ann his wife was a Kendrick. John Rufus Dinkins, son of James Dinkins and Margaret Armstrong, was born the 21 first of May 1748. David Kendricks Dinkins, son also was born June 3, 1749. Eliza Ann Dinkins daughter of same was born April 3, 1751. Robert Armstrong Dinkins son of same, was born Jan. 14, 1753. Sarah Margaret Dinkins daughter of same was born Aug 3, 1754. James Dinkins, son of Samel, was born Dec. 26, 1756."

"The following is partly true, and partly from tradition. In the middle centuries, there lived in the south of Scotland, a great chief, known as 'Johnnie the Strong' who had a large following of young men who took up arms against the crown. They were a hardy rugged race, accustomed to all kinds of exposure and dangers. They set at defiance all laws, and for many years lived in the low-lands a terror to the governent. Johnnie the Strong, sent impudent messages to the King, and challenged him to mortal combat. He was loved by all his people, who regarded him greater than the King. Tradition states, he at one time met hand to hand, a score of Troopers who attempted to capture him, but he defended himself against them all, killing two, and wounding several others, after which he was called Johnnie the Strong."

"John William Armstrong, it is believed, was the great-grandson of Johnnie the Strong. This is supported by the fact, his Grand Father was betrayed, surprised and killed, as tradition has it, that Johnnie the Strong was enticed from his camp, and killed by the King while he was being held by the Soldiers of the King."

"James, Thomas, and John Dinkins, it is supposed were Welchmen, who joined the Armstrongs in Ireland, having been driven from the country, so tradition states because of disloyalty to the Crown. Tradition further states, they were called 'Devil in the Bush', which implies they were also outlaws, it is claimed, on account of the King imposing restrictions on their hunting privileges. Anyway, the brothers came to America with the Armstrongs, whose children intermarried.

a1736 Williamsburg County

Within the territory limits of what is now Williamsburg but outside Williamsburg Township as surveyed in 1736... settlers whose names have not herfore been mentioned are ... William and Sarah Tompkins Dinkins. These people settled along the Black River from the point where it turns abruptly northward just entering Georgetown County from Williamsburg County and along the present Williamsburg-Georgetown County line to the Pee Dee River. This settlement was called Winjaw, and this was the first part of the present county of Williamsburg that was inhabited by white people. Some of these people lived there as early as 1710....."

Bodie, William Willis. Historic Williamsburg County, South Carolina, Columbia, S. C., 1923.

Source: Sumter Chapter Lineage Chart 142 (Mrs. Edward V. Atkinson).

Source of marriage: Sumter Old Bible Records. (see William Dinkins, b.18 May 1746. This bible also indicates Wm. Wright m. 26 Dec 1745 to Sarah Paterson.

Andrea says this William Dinkins, the Revolutionary soldier of the High Hills, is not to be confused with another contemporary William Dinkins (his cousin) who was also a soldier.....The other William Dinkins was a son of Thomas and Nancy (Ann) Dinkins of Anson Co. N.C. and Cheraw Dist. S.C. The William Dinkins always signs his own name in more than twenty or more papers I have examined... The other William Dinkins, a soldier, in some ten or twelve papers of his I have examined always signs with "His X Mark". The William Dinkins of Anson Co. N.C. and Cheraw Dist. S.C. was in Georgia by 26 Sept. 1799....... While the William Dinkins, Revolutionary soldier of the High Hills of Sumter Co. S.C. was in the High Hills from 1768 to 1812.

Another statement in Leonardo Andrea's file indicates the connection of this William to his father.

This Joshua was the father of John, Lewis, and Thomas Dinkins, whose names, along with his, appear in the Revolutionary Index in S.C. along with those of his brother, William, Sr.; his son, William, Jr.; and William, Jr.'s sons, Asa and Samuel.

In record 23, Andrea indicates this William married Sarah Tompkins 12 Feb.
1738 in the Pr. Frederick Episcopal Church...This church was the parish church of entire Craven County from 1715 to 1765 when other parish churches were erected.....The dates of this William Dinkins fit for him to have been the son of John Dinkins arrived in Charleston 1717.

Historical Sketches of Sumter County Volume II, 1981, says it is believed that William Dinkins, who married Sarah Tompkins, who was the ancestor of those of the Dinkins name living in Sumter County. In the Prince Frederick Parish record is the notation: "February ye 12th 1738 William Dinkins and Sarah Tompkins marryed." He took his bride to Chesterfield, where they were members of the famed old St. David Episcopal Church in Cheraw. They are likely buried there.

However, it is recorded in the family Bible that William Dinkins, Jr., was born in Craven County May 18, 1746. (RCL note: I have been told that Craven County covered a very large area in both NC and SC in the early times.)

William married Sarah Wright (d. 4 Apr 1791) on 14 Jun 1768.

William next married Nancy Smart on 25 Mar 1792 in Probably, Sumter, South Carolina.

6. Micajah Dinkins (Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born after 1717 in Probably, Mechlenburg, North Carolina.

General Notes: Item 183 Micajah Dinkins shows as a witness some two or three times in Sumter County between 1800 and 1820 on some land deed and always on land deed for land upon what is now Lee County. I was told by an old lawyer in Sumter, a Mr. Reynolds, age 86, and who was reared on Rafting Creek that Micajah, Jermiah and Samuel Dinkins were brothers, and they were sons of the widow Dinkins who lived in what is now Lee County on the east side of Rafting Creek. He was pretty sure her name was Ann Dinkins. Mr Reynolds also said that Micajah Dinkins and his brothers were grandsons of old Joshua Dinkins and they were cousins of Asa Dinkins and that set. He also said he heard that old William Dinkins who in his old age wed Nancy Smart was of that set and that all of them were kindred.
Item 184 Chesterfield records were destroyed by Sherman so if Micajah had a l000 acres of land there, no records are on file. Mr. Reynolds said that John and Lewis Dinkins of Richland County were cousins of the Sumter county set and that Samuel Dinkins, the brother of Micajah moved to Richland County from Sumter County.

7. Samuel Dinkins (Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born after 1717 in Probably, Mechlenburg, North Carolina.

8. Joshua Dinkins 1 (Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born after 1717 in Probably, Mechlenburg, North Carolina.

General Notes: Source: Leonardo Andrea and Mary Dinkins Parsons.

In addition to his sons, William. Sr., Micajah and Samuel, Thomas Dinkins is believed to have been the father of Joshua Dinkins, who also owned land in Craven County and in Richland County, S.C. This Joshua was the father of John, Lewis, and Thomas Dinkins, whose names, along with his, appear in the Revolutionary Index in S.C. along with those of his brother, William, Sr.; his son, William, Jr.; and William, Jr.'s sons, Asa and Samuel. This Joshua also had other children -- quite a large family.

The daughters' names come from the will of Thomas Dinkins (Andrea #99.)8

Joshua married someone.

His children were:

+ 17 M    i. John Rufus Dinkins was born in 1745 and died in 1811 at age 66.

John married Fannie Henderson.

+ 18 M    ii. Lewis Dinkins .

+ 19 M    iii. Thomas Dinkins 1 died from 1805 to 1806 in Camden, Kershaw, South Carolina.

Martha married Richard Coleman (d. Bef 1805).

+ 21 F    v. Mary Dinkins died after 1805.

+ 22 F    vi. Elizabeth Dinkins died after 1805.

9. John Rufus Dinkins 1 (James2, Immigrant1) was born on 21 May 1748 in Mecklenburg, North Carolina.3

General Notes: Source: Leonardo Andrea and Mary Dinkins Parsons.

"John Rufus Dinkins."
This man left Mecklenberg County and went to Anson, where he died. It is not known whether he was born in Londonderry, Ireland or went there from Wales, but I believe he must have been born there. The Dinkins family originally came from Wales.

Chronicles of the Armstrongs, page 353, contains:

Statement of John R. Dinkins. "Copies of a Testament belonging to my Father, James Dinkins, who was the son of James Dinkins of Macklenburg County, N. C. who emmigrated from the Londonderry together with his tow brothers John and Thomas in the years 1717 and 1719 . . . in company with John William Armstrong, Robert Armstrong, Henry Armstrong, and a cousin Rufus George Armstrong.

They may have a relationship kindred to "Brothers in Law.' The JOHN D. SMITH is mentioned as grandson of Mr. Dinkins, Sr. A man by the name of JOHN D. SMITH, who was married to a GADBERRY lady, is my 4th g grandfather. He and his wife and children arrived in Yazoo County, MS about 1820. This last JOHN D. SMITH was the son of a SARAH MACKIE SMITH GADBERRY.. All of these people seem to have been natives of the Mecklenburg County, NC area.

Have you chanced upon the footprints of any of these people?

General Notes: Andrea #28 indicates this union produced James Dinkins b. 1772 m. Lucy Kendrick. This, unfortunately, conflicts with the Dinkins text by Captain James Dinkins, 1908. That text indicates James (spouse of Lucy) is the son of John Dinkins and Fannie Henderson.

James married Margaret Morrow before 1772.

After the death in 1791 of his first wife, William Dinkins married Nancy Smart and moved to Georgia. However, it is stated that he was buried in Sumter Co. in the Wright-Dinkins-Atkinson cemetery. William and Sarah (Wright) Dinkins had five children: Samuel (1769-1825) unmarried; Asa (born 1771) married Mary Anne Jennings; William and Wright P., both of whom died as infants; and Sarah who died unmarried.

William Wright v. McRa & Cantey. Bill and answer read. Lewis Dinkins sworn saith that he was a witness to the bill of sale from William Dinkins to William Wright, he saw it executed. In March 1792 he was present with Wm. Dinkins and Wm. Wright, they were conversing together and thought it right to make over to the complt., in trust for his children, the eleven Negroes mentioned in the Bill of Sale. They were delivered to him, in trust, for the following persons, Asa, Samuel and Sarah Dinkins, children of William Dinkins by his first wife. This deponent asked W. Dinkins if he was in debt, he said he owed £150 or £200. The complt. took all the Negroes except three which were left for the support of Samuel Dinkins; Asa had his part delivered to him and kept them. This transaction happened at the house of William Dinkins. He had nine other Negroes.

Ely Freeman sworn, saith he knew all the Negroes mentioned in the Bill of Sale. He was present when W. Dinkins married his second wife; the Bill of Sale was executed shortly after; all the Negroes remained in his possession, Dave he sold to Dubose. Asa Dinkins had possession of Will, Isham and Lewis. Ben, Bob and Jim remained in possession of W. Dinkins. Cloe was with the complt.; he did not believe at that time that Wm. Dinkins was in debt any great amount. He owed this deponent in 1793. All the Negroes worked on Capt. Dubose's plantation, it was generally supposed that the Negroes were Wm. Dinkins'; the Bill of Sale was not much known. Mr. Bracey had a Bill of Sale of Ben from W. Dinkins who owed to Mr. Bracey. Ben was also mortgaged to Mr. Guignard. Another Negroe (Peter) was sold to Mr. Brown, at same time with Dave. Neither of Asa Dinkins' Negroes worked in the crop of 1793, nor of Sarah's portion. Mr. Wright had Sarah's proportion of the Negroes.

Sumter County Conveyances AA, page 115 indicates William Dinkins conveyed all of his real and personal property to his wife Nancy Dinkins on 1 June 1803. Signed in the presence of James Howard and Alexander Smart.

Sumter County Conveyances CC, page 529 indicates William and Nancy Dinkins sold their 265 acre plantations to Captain James R. Spann, United States Army for $600 on 27 January 1812.

Andrea states on page 42 that William Dinkins and his second wife, Nancy Smart and children moved to the western lands in 1812 from Sumter Co.

Also, Sumter County was previously referred to as Claremont County.

RCL note: Since of William's male children, only Asa had children (who are well documented), it is logical to eliminate this William as the possible grandfather of Isham Dinkins b. 1800-1808. (However, I did not count on finding a second family for William that would cover the same time period as Asa's family.)

On Andrea page 45,4-i, there is the following statement: The Dinkins papers state that William Dinkins had a number of children by his second wife, Nancy Smart... These moved to one of the western states... See #4-h where William Dinkins and wife, Nancy Dinkins, sell all remaining lands in Sumter Co. 27 January 1812... William Dinkins does not show again in Sumter Co., S.C.

4-h William Dinkins with dower by his wife, Nancy Dinkins (see 4-e) a deed sg. 27 Jan. 1812... Confirmation to Capt. John R. Spann of the U.S. Army a deed for 265a land according to a plat made 7 Jan. 1812 by Hastin Jennings... land adjacent to Samuel Neilson... J.R. Spann... Gen. Thomas Sumter... Mr. Murray's land / Wit. James G. Spann, Peter Keen M.D. & John Horan J.P.

(4-e abstracts will of Alexander Smart, proved 7 Jan 1809) where Nancy Dinkins is listed as his first child. It also indicates William Dinkins and Nancy Smart were married a few days before 16th March 1792.)

The Sumter County court records indicate that Asa Dinkins died intestate in 1819 and that his father was William Dinkins and he had moved to Georgia.

This is interesting because Historical Sketches of Sumter County, Volume II, 1981, by Cassie Nicholes, page 105, says After the death of Sarah, he married Nancy Smart and moved to Georgia. However, when he died February 26, 1818, he was buried in the Wright-Dinkins-Atkinson Cemetery beside his first wife who died in 1791.

The October 30, 1821 Georgia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspaper indicated William Dinkins had a letter remaining in the Post-Office at Marion, Georgia, September 30, 1821.

The April 20, 1822 issue indicated "Will be sold, on the 1st Tuesday in June next, in the town of Marion, Twiggs County... the following property, vis: ... One negro boy about 15 years old ... taken as the property of William Dinkins, to satisfy a fi fa in favor of John Martin vs. Washington Dinkins and William Dinkins. (See notes for Horace R. Dinkins for further information on George Washington Dinkins.)

In 1997 I checked the deed records for both Twiggs and Jones Counties and did not find any Dinkins records.



!!!MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THIS CAVEAT WHEN READING THIS GENEALOGY!!!

Since I cannot specifically find Isham Dinkins parents, for the present I am going to connect him to William Dinkins and Nancy Smart. In addition, I am also going to add the other unidentified Dinkins in Houston County, GA found there in various records covering the 1820-1840 time period. Specifically, I am adding Charles M., Horace R. and Manning Dinkins as brothers to Isham. There is absolutely nothing other than circumstantial evidence to support this assumption. The 1830 Georgia federal census lists Horace R., Isham, and Manning Dinkins on pages 268, 275, and 271 respectively in Houston County. The only other listing is for Frederick Denkin in Tattnall County. The 1820 Georgia census lists only a Horace Dinkins in Baldwin County, next to Putnam County where Matthew H. Leggitt and Edmund Allums resided.

!!!MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THIS CAVEAT WHEN READING THIS GENEALOGY!!!

Historical Sketches of Sumter County lends some support to this. That text says that after the death of Sarah, William married Nancy Smart and moved to Georgia. However, when he died February 26, 1818, he was buried in the Wright-Dinkins-Atkinson Cemetery beside his first wife who died in 1791.

William married Sarah Wright on 14 Jun 1768. Sarah was born on 21 Aug 1750 in Craven, South Carolina and died on 4 Apr 1791 in Sumter, South Carolina at age 40.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 24 M    i. Samuel Dinkins 2 was born on 17 Mar 1769 and died on 12 Sep 1825 at age 56.

+ 25 M    ii. Asa Dinkins 1 was born on 1 Aug 1771 in Sumter, South Carolina and died on 15 Nov 1819 at age 48.

Asa married Mary Ann Jennings (d. 27 Dec 1836) on 6 Jun 1792.

+ 26 M    iii. William Dinkins was born on 3 Jan 1774 and died on 20 Apr 1774.

+ 27 M    iv. Wright P. Dinkins was born on 12 May 1777 and died on 20 Mar 1778.

+ 28 F    v. Sarah Dinkins 1 was born on 6 Nov 1780 and died on 9 Sep 1800 at age 19.

William next married Nancy Smart, daughter of Alexander Smart and Leah, on 25 Mar 1792 in Probably, Sumter, South Carolina. Nancy was born about 1771 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

General Notes: Nancy Dinkins witnessed a land transaction for Lot 137 in District 14 on 1-28-1836. (Book F, page 721.) This is quite near where Isham Dinkins bought and sold Lot 134 in 1829/1834 and witnessed the sale of Lot 139 in 1833.


Children from this marriage were:

+ 29 M    i. Manning Dinkins was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

+ 30 M    ii. Charles M. Dinkins was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

+ 31 M    iii. Horace R. Dinkins was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

+ 32 M    iv. Isham Dinkins was born in 1800 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina4 and died on 7 Nov 1853 in Houston, Georgia4 at age 53.

Isham married Elizabeth Brown (d. Bef 5 Apr 1875) before 1930.

17. John Rufus Dinkins (Joshua3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born in 1745 and died in 1811 at age 66.

General Notes: Source: The Dinkins and Springs Families, Captain James Dinkins, 1908. This text mentions only children Martha, Joshua, James, and Frederick.

History of Richland County, Green, 1932, indicates that Will Book E, page183 contains John Dinkins, Inventory, September 1, 1809.

Page 29 of the Leonardo Andrea collection of papers is an abstraction of John Dinkins' will signed 18 Sept. 1809 in Mecklenburg County, N.C. with no proven date listed.

Unfortunately it mentions his wife and executor as Polly (also mentions her as Mary). It lists children James, Frederick, Joshua, Martha Kendrick, Mary Smith, Peggy Henderson, and Elizabeth Bowden. It also lists grandsons William H. Smith, John D. Smith, John Dinkins Jr. Robert Dinkins and granddaughters Polly Roberts and Rebecca Roberts.

Historical Overview
by
Dr. William H. Huffman
July, 1993

The John Dinkins House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, and the Dinkins farm, including the house, lodge and cemetery, was designated a local historic property in 1974. Although the John Dinkins House and Lodge have been moved to a new location, they still retain their historical significance for three main reasons: 1) they are still associated with the Dinkins family, who were prominent early settlers in Mecklenburg County; 2) they have been moved to a setting which preserves their rural character; their relationship to a wagon road leading to South Carolina; and the same relative site placement between the house and lodge; and 3) they retain almost all their original architectural fabric, including walls, ceilings, floors, beams, rafters, shake roofing and the restoration of original paint colors, and landscape plantings as close to the original as possible.

John Rufus Dinkins (c.1745-1811), who built the house and lodge, became a wealthy early planter in Mecklenburg County. It is possible that he built the lodge house as his first dwelling on the 241 acre tract he bought from John Smart in 1795; he may have lived on the land as early as 1788. 1 As he prospered, eventually he built a grand house befitting his great increase in affluence over the years. A clear indicator of the economic status he achieved can be seen by the fact that in his will of 1809 he left his children thirty-two slaves, which would make him one of the most prosperous plantation owners in Mecklenburg County. 2

Although the Dinkins family history may never be fully reconstructed because of the lack of records and confusing data, a sufficient amount is known for a general outline. The Dinkinses were originally Welsh, but migrated to Scotland in the sixteenth century and later to Londonderry in Northern Ireland, from which they left for America. On the 19th of October, 1717, three Dinkins brothers, John, James and Thomas, arrived in Charleston with four members of the Armstrong family, brothers John William, Robert, Henry and cousin Rufus George. By 1723, they were settled in Mecklenburg County. 3

John Dinkins, a descendant of original settler James Dinkins, bought a 241 -acre tract from Francis Smart in 1795, as noted above, but there is some indication that he may have lived on the land in 1788. 4 It is possible that John Dinkins built the older, two-story lodge as his first residence on the land, and it is reasonable to assume that he built the large plantation house between 1795 and 1809 , the year he prepared his will in which the house is mentioned. 5 The Dinkins family cemetery must have been established on the land just after the earlier date, since the oldest known burial was in 1798. According to local tradition, the house was an inn or way station on the stagecoach road that went between Charlotte and Camden, S.C., through the Catawba Indian Nation land, which was an old Indian trading path that became known by its present name, Nations Ford Road. 6

John Dinkins was said to be the first Baptist in Mecklenburg County, and he was one of the founding members and one of two original deacons of the Flint Hill Baptist Church, located just south of his plantation in Fort Mill, S. C. 7 According to the history of the church, Dr. T. J. Pritchard, a grandson of John Dinkins, wrote that the latter wanted to establish a church between Fort Mill and Sugar Creek and sent off for a suitable preacher in 1790:
John Dinkins was an Irishman, and a man of means, and resided on the Nations Ford Road, half a mile beyond the Mineral Spring on Sugar Creek. He sent his overseer to Richmond, Virginia, with a covered wagon drawn by four horses, and brought to his plantation, on which he had built a parsonage, the Rev. John Rooker, whose family was supported almost entirely by him for some time. 8

The records related to John Dinkins' marriages remain a puzzle at present. A number of sources cite his marriage to Fannie Henderson in 1751, and the Flint Hill Baptist Church records show his wife as being Margaret Dinkins in 1792. 9 In his will he names his wife as Polly Dinkins, 10 and other sources cite a marriage to a Mary Glover. 11 Another mystery relates to the burial place of John Dinkins and his wives: to the best of present knowledge, they are neither in the family cemetery nor at the Flint Hill Baptist Church, although the church records note the date of his death.

Six Dinkins children were living 1809 when John made his will: Martha (1766-?), married John Kendrick, 1785; Joshua (1770-1820), married Obedience Kendrick (1773-1838) in 1803; James (1772-1829), married Lucy Kendrick in 1793; Frederick (1774-1824). married Cynthia Springs in 1802; Mary (? - ? ). married John Smith: and Margaret ["Peggy"] ( ? - ? ) married (1) James Roberts (d. 1804, age 27) and (2) Dr. Samuel Henderson. Another son who died earlier is Captain John Dinkins (1775-1805), who was married to Mary Irwin. 12 Many of John Dinkins' children, spouses and offspring are buried in the family cemetery. Some of the earlier tombstones were likely to have been carved by members of the Bigham family, who operated a stone carving shop about two miles northeast of the Dinkins plantation from about 1765 to about 1820. The Bighams carved gravestones throughout the Carolina Piedmont, and the most examples of their work in one place are found at the nearby Steele Creek Presbyterian Church. 13

In 1811, the plantation passed to Frederick Dinkins in accordance with John Sr.'s will. 14 When Frederick died in 1824 at the age of fifty without a will, John Springs was appointed to administrate the estate for his minor children; in 1826 the estate was listed as having 480 acres, which included about 233 acres of a widow's dower. 15 Ownership is not clear thereafter until it was deeded as a 414-acre tract to John Williamson by D. R. Dunlap, C.M.E., in 1855. 16 Williamson's daughters, Martha E. Grier and Elizabeth C. Bell, inherited the property about 1883, and in 1890 Elizabeth C. Bell became the sole owner, which was then 285 acres. 17 In 1947, John H. Bell, Elizabeth's son, became sole proprietor when he obtained the interests of the other six heirs to the land. 18 John H. Bell, Jr. inherited the land from his father in 1990. 19

In recent years most of the Dinkins plantation land has been developed for light industrial use, and the Dinkins house and lodge were threatened with demolition. Consequently, in 1992, John H. Bell, Jr. sold the house and lodge to Dr. James F. and Judy Boyd. 20 The Dinkins family cemetery was restored in 1992 as an Eagle Scout project. It has been surveyed as a separate land parcel, and is to be preserved as a historic site. 21

The Boyds moved the house to the new site on October 19-20, 1992. 22 Reconstruction is presently under way with an attempt to preserve as much of the original architectural fabric as possible, and is expected to be completed about October, 1993. The new location is also an historic site, the grounds of the William Lee House (designated in 1963), and the house once again will face an extant stagecoach and wagon road that used to go to Camden, S. C. 23 The lodge was moved to the new site about February, 1993. After work on the house is completed, the lodge will be reconstructed with the same relationship it had to the house on the original site.

In recent years, the Dinkins House and Lodge were facing certain demolition by ever-growing development, and have been spared that fate by being moved and sensitively reconstructed on a new site. Because of the reasons cited in the first paragraph, they remain worthy of designation as historic landmarks.

"John Rufus Dinkins."
This man left Mecklenberg County and went to Anson, where he died. It is not known whether he was born in Londonderry, Ireland or went there from Wales, but I believe he must have been born there. The Dinkins family originally came from Wales.

Chronicles of the Armstrongs, page 353, contains:

Statement of John R. Dinkins. "Copies of a Testament belonging to my Father, James Dinkins, who was the son of James Dinkins of Macklenburg County, N. C. who emmigrated from the Londonderry together with his tow brothers John and Thomas in the years 1717 and 1719 . . . in company with John William Armstrong, Robert Armstrong, Henry Armstrong, and a cousin Rufus George Armstrong. [Signed} John R. Dinkins

"James Dinkins was married to Margaret Armstrong at Good-Hope neighborhood church, June 17, 1747. Margaret Armstrong Dinkins was the daughter of John William Armstrong [great-grandson of John of Gilnockie], and Ann his wife was a Kendrick.

Somehow, I am kin to the three families shown on the subject line above. The names DINKINS & GADBERRY appear side by side in other documents. They may have a relationship kindred to "Brothers in Law.' The JOHN D. SMITH is mentioned as grandson of Mr. Dinkins, Sr. A man by the name of JOHN D. SMITH, who was married to a GADBERRY lady, is my 4th g grandfather. He and his wife and children arrived in Yazoo County, MS about 1820. This last JOHN D. SMITH was the son of a SARAH MACKIE SMITH GADBERRY.. All of these people seem to have been natives of the Mecklenburg County, NC area.

Have you chanced upon the footprints of any of these people?

Fifth Generation (Great Great-Grandchildren)


24. Samuel Dinkins 2 (William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born on 17 Mar 1769 and died on 12 Sep 1825 at age 56.

General Notes: Leonardo Andrea says this Samuel Dinkins with Kit Gayle, two boys were seized by 31 May 1780 by Rowden in the High Hills for firing several shots. Gale was hanged on a tree and Samuel Dinkins was brought in chains to the Camden Prison ... This is the little Dinkins boy, and brother of Asa Dinkins... He was barely aged 18 years when he with Gayle took a few pot shots at the British... Andrea.

Andrea quotes a bible owned in 1868 by Langdon H. Dinkins that Samuel died unmarried 12 Sept. 1825.

Historical Sketches of Sumter County, Volume II, page 105, indicates the Dinkins Mill Track was willed to Samuel by his Uncle William Wright. Since he died unmarried, the vast estate containing hundreds of acres was inherited by his brother Asa.

25. Asa Dinkins 1 (William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born on 1 Aug 1771 in Sumter, South Carolina and died on 15 Nov 1819 at age 48.

John Dinkins sworn, saith that he was a witness to the Deed of Gift to Asa Dinkins by Wm. Wright; he had heard Mr. Dinkins declare that he had promised his wife on her death bed, that he would make over the property he obtained with her to her children, and that he meant to do so. He understood that he afterwards did so. He knew several of the Negroes; he had a house and lot in Stateburg; he had a tract of land below and several other Negroes besides those mentioned in the (P. 86) Bill of Sale, also a waggon, cattle, and Plantation Tools. Complt. went to Captain Davis and asked from him a Statement of the Execution against William Dinkins, on which two Negroes were to be sold, he wished to pay it, he did not receive the money, that this deponent afterwards tendered the Sheriff the money, he would not receive it, the Negroes were sold, the Complt. forbid the sale. This deponent left Stateburg in May 1793, he proved the Execution of a Bill of Sale from William Dinkins to D. Brown of two Negroes Peter and Dave dated 3 April 1792, he heard that Mr. Bracey had a considerable demand against W. Dinkins, he bought some goods shortly after the Execution of the Bill of Sale. The tract of land he owned was valuable. In 1793 they planted Captain Dubose's plantation together. William Dinkins exchaged the house and lot in Stateburg for a tract of land.

Asa Dinkins, son of William and Sarah Wright Dinkins, Jr. died in 1819, and records of the lengthy settlement of his estate are available from Sumter County, South Carolina. There are records of the petitions for the settlement of property deeded to Asa by his grandfather, William Wright, Sr. This of William Wright, Sr. deeds all lands, etc. to Asa upon the death of his widow which implies she died about 1829. The settlement of Asa's was between 1820 and 1835. His eleven children were named as heirs. (However, their names are a little different than I have recorded: 1. Sarah who married John W. Sylvester 2. James W. 3. Enelle who married James Spann 4. Larkin T. 5.
William W. 6. Tyre J. 7. Langdon H. 8. Wylie H. 9 Lucian A. 10. Asa L. 11. Samuel J.)

General Notes: Andrea #164 indicates Sarah died single.

29. Manning Dinkins (William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

General Notes: For future research, the 1830 Houston Co. census indicates a Manning Dinkins as 1 male 20-30, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 40-50. This could be Ishams brother, sister, and mother.

30. Charles M. Dinkins (William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

General Notes: Charles M. Dinkins witnessed Isham Dinkins' purchase of Lot 170 in the 14th Dist. of Houston, Co., Ga. on 4-17-1829.

31. Horace R. Dinkins (William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born after 1792 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina.

General Notes: Genealogical Abstracts from the Georgia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspaper issue of April 13, 1819 indicated Horace Dinkins was among a list of individuals having letters remaining in the Post-Office at Milledgeville, Georgia, on the 1st April 1819.

The November 12, 1822 issue contained: Whereas Horace R. Dinkins applies to me for letters of administration of the estate of George W. Dinkins, deceased;
(Signed) James Smith, C.C.O.

Horace R. Dinkins was grantee of 200 acres in Lot 30 in orig.13th Dist, now 12th District, in Houston County on 1-25-1831. Could he be related to Isham?

H. R. Dinkins witnessed the sale of Lot 20 in the 13th Dist Houston Co., Ga.
on 6-8-1831.

Horace R. Dinkins sold Lot 30 in the original 13th District on 5-22-1832.

Horace R. Dinkins listed as a purchaser in the sale of estate of Delamar Clayton dated 20 July 18

Horace Dinkins drew Lot 0105, District 12, Section 1 in the 1832 Georgia Gold Lottery.

Isaiah Chain, Sheriff of Houston Co., Ga. did sieze, expose and sell the property (Lot 30 in the 12th Dist.) on 2-5-1833 to Theodore Guerry for $400.00.

(Book D, page 562.) Macon County marriage records in Hunting for Bears indicates the marriage of Horace Dinkins and Lucy Ann Smith in 1863. Other source indicates Macon County Marriage Book "A", page 80, 8-14-1863 by A. H. Greer, J. P.

32. Isham Dinkins (William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born in 1800 in Of, Sumter, South Carolina4 and died on 7 Nov 1853 in Houston, Georgia4 at age 53.

General Notes: Reprint of Official Register of Land Lottery of Georgia 1827, GPC 1967 indicates Isham Denkins of Captain Graggs District in Twiggs County was the fortunate drawer of No. 45, Dt. 24, Sec. 2 in Muscogee County on the 57th day's drawing (May 1, 1827). It is recorded in Land Lottery Register - No. 26. The 1827 drawing was for white males over 18, who had been residents of the state for three years, Revolutionary soldiers, widows of Revolutionary soldiers, orphans, and others, who had not drawn land in previous lotteries, as eligible for participation. The lottery distributed the land in newly created counties of Muscogee, Troup, Coweta, Lee, and Carroll. The land had been ceded by the Indian Springs (Muscogee) Treaty of February 12, 1825. (This new area is about 70 miles WNW of Twigg County.)

5-10-1831. Appointed appraiser to appraise the estate of Henry R. Blanchard.

5-22-1832. Granted 24 small notes for $30 each to Arthur A. Morgan. Involved lot 30 in the original 13th District of Houston Co., Ga. Also involved the following Negro slaves - Henry, about 12. Trees, a woman about 35. Maryann, about 16. Harret, about 12. Celia about 18. And March, about 23. Deed book E, page 233.

The Alphabetical Index to Georgia's 1832 Gold Lottery, Heritage Papers, 1981 indicates Isham Dinkins drew District 15, Section 2, Lot 0359. This lottery distributed the land ceded by the Cherokee Indians. The area was in the north west part of Georgia bounded on the south by Carroll and Campbell Counties extending north about 30 miles in the west and 50 miles in the east, the west by the Alabama border, and the east by the Chattahoochee River.

10-16-1833. Isham Dinkins witnessed land transaction for Lot 170 in 14th District. (Book F, page 165.)

-------1833. Witnessed transaction involving lot 139 in the original 14th District, Houston Co., Ga. Deed book E, page 546. Recorded January 7, 1834.

2-1-1834. Isham Dinkins witnessed land transaction for Lot 119 in 14th District. (Book F, page 209.)

12-23-1834. Isam Dinkins purchased Lot 257 in the 14th District (202 1/2 acres) for $250. (Book F, page 264,)

The 1840 Houston County census indicates Isham Dinkins on page 370 with one male under 5, one male between 30 - 40, two females under 5, three females between 5 and 10, one female between 20 and 30, and five slaves. The only other Dinkins in this census are Samuel and Paul S. Dinkins next to each other on page 378 (they have 26 and 21 slaves.)

The Houston County Superior Court Minutes 1843 - 1851, page 18 indicates Isham Dinkins was charged with Assault with intent to murder 25 April 1844. Unfortunately there was no follow up record on the result of the indictment.

Leonardo Andreas, in his Odds and Ends section mentiones the following: William Isham Kendrick of Greenville Co., married ... Rachel Kendrick, a sister to William Isham Kendrick, m. Dr. Benjamin Few and one of their sons was the late Dr. Few who was president of Duke University. Leonardo recalls these old Kendricks as a child. (that would be in the mid to late 1800s.

Another coincidence is that in the 1826 Georgia Tax Digest, Mathew H. Leggett is listed in Capt. Isham Kendrick's district.

This Kendrick/Dinkins connection is of special interest because of The Dinkins and Springs Families, Captain James Dinkins, 1908. This text indicates a continuing relationship between the Kendrick and Dinkins families.

Source: Georgia Intestate Records, Austin, 1986. p 86. Dinkins, Isham, decd, Roscoe Lipsey, gdn of orphs: John M., Leander J., Dusta M., James W. and Charles M., 11/7/1853, Houston, Ga.

Isham's date of death has not been specifically established. He is not listed with his wife and children in the 1850 Houston County census. We do know that Daniel Dykes posted a $20,000 administration bond on 8/1/1853 for the administration of Isham Dinkin's goods, chattles, rights, credits, lands, and tenements, late of Houston County.

The returns in the following years mentions children Chas M., John M., Leander J., William, and Matilda. From this it appears James W. is probably William and Dusta M. is Matilda. There is no mention of the young Thomas Dinkins listed in the 1850 census.

For future research, the 1830 Houston Co. census indicates a Manning Dinkins as 1 male 20-30, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 40-50. This could be Ishams brother, sister, and mother.

Also, a Horace R. Dinkins was grantee of 200 acres in Lot 30 in orig. 13th Dist, now 12th District, in Houston County on 1-25-1831. Could he be related to Isham? (Book D, page 562.) Macon County marriage records in Hunting for Bears indicates the marriage of Horace Dinkins and Lucy Ann Smith in 1863.

Nancy Dinkins witnessed a land transaction for Lot 137 in District 14 on 1-28-1836. (Book F, page 721.)

The 1840 Houston County federal census shows Isham Dinkins with 1 m < 5, 1 m 30-40, 2 f < 5, 2 f 5-10, 1 f 30-40, and 5 slaves.

Page 15 indicates a bond for $20,000 for Isham Dinkins, deceased, dated 1 August 1853.

While looking at census entry for his wife I noticed the 1850 Houston County, GA, federal census shows Gilbert D. Leggett as a single 32 year old farmer, born in South Carolina. He is in the lower 14th district as dwelling number 397. Just ten entries away at dwelling 407 is Mrs. Elizabeth Dinkins, wife of Isham Dinkins, and their family. Is it possible that Gilbert knew Isham Dinkins in South Carolina before they migrated west to Georgia?

Isham married Elizabeth Brown, daughter of William P. Brown and Mary, before 1930. Elizabeth was born about 1823 in Of, Baldwin, Georgia and died before 5 Apr 1875 in Macon, Georgia.

General Notes: There is an Elizabeth Dinkins in the 1818 Richmond County, GA tax digest, being taxed $5.9375 for 19 negroes. However this Elizabeth would be too old to be ours.

Deed Book C, page 262, Houston Co., GA indicates William P. Brown of Baldwin Co., GA on 5-8-1827 grants to Mark M. Brown for the sum of $1.00 seven Negro slaves under condition that they are for the sole, separate & proper use of my Daughter, Elizabeth Dinkins, now in Houston Co. for her natural Life - After death, be equally divided among the children and heirs of her body.

(RCL note: I am not absolutely positive that this James and his father John descend from Joshua. I am using the Andrea #99 fact as circumstantial evidence to make the connection. At this point I will include the first few paragraphs of The Dinkins and Springs Families to assist the reader in determing if this connection does in fact exist.)

THE DINKINS FAMILY

Compiled by Captain James Dinkins, of New Orleans, LA. 1908

Many years ago I had the pleasure of knowing a gentleman (Mr. De Courcey) who had spend much time and energy in investigating the origin of family names, and other subjects, in the old world.

He was a man of learning and wide information. Mr. De Courcey stated that the namee "Dinkins" originated in Wales about A. D. 1500, and signified "The Devil in the Bush."

The people thus characterized were evidently "Bushwhakers," who resisted the government for some supposed wrong.

Three brothers, James, John, and Samuel, and two cousins, Thomas and Joshua, landed at Charleston, S. C., in October, 1717.

We can find no trace of them afterwards in South Carolina for fifty or more years, except that Captain Sam Dinkins (evidently a son or grandson of one of the brothers) is mentioned as Captain in Marion's famous Cavalry. He distinguished himself for bravery on many fields.

It seems they removed to North Carolina and settled in Mecklenburg County, for about 1740 we find the names of James, John, and Joshua Dinkins in the records there

James, John, Richard and Thomas Dinkins were soldiers in the Revolutionary War from Mecklenburg County, N. C., and James Dinkins, son of John Dinkins and Fannie Henderson, and husband of Lucy Kendrick, was a member of Captain James Wilson's company first regiment Mecklenburg troop in the War of 1812 - "Alexander's History of Mecklenburg."

John Dinkins married Fannie Henderson in 1751.

At this point in his text, Captain James Dinkins begins the genealogy that follow this line.

It may be that John and Lucy Dinkins had several childrend who died prior to Lucy's migration to Mississippi. The following are buried in the NC, Mecklenburg, Cemetery, Dinkins Family Cemetery

DINKINS FAMILY CEMETERY

This cemetery is located on Nation Ford Rd. south of Charlotte. It now sets
at the top of the embankment of I-485 where it crosses under Nation Ford Rd.
in a grove of trees. The cemetery sat behind the old Dinkins Home on Nation
Ford Rd. That home has been moved to another part of the county and
renovated. The old home was built in the 1790s and Dinkins was issued a
license to operate a tavern there. In later years, it was used as a
stagecoach stop. The cemetery has about 20 headstones and many field stone
markers. It appears that at one time, there was a rock wall around it. the
cemetery is now surrounded by and industrial park. To see the cemetery, you
would have to park at one of the businesses along Nation Ford Rd. and walk
approximately 1,000 feet back from the road.

James married Lucy Kendrick,5 daughter of John Kendrick and Amy Fox, on 5 Jan 1796 in Warren, North Carolina. Lucy was born in 1775 in King William, Virginia and died in 1849 in Canton, Madison, Mississippi at age 74.

General Notes: James Dinkins died in Mecklenburg County N.C. in 1825. Lucy Kendrick Dinkins and family moved to Madison County about 1841. Lucy Kendrick Dinkins was an original member of the First Baptist Church of Canton, founded in 1843. She died in 1849.

The Dinkins and Springs Families indicates her death in Warren County, NC. However the above would indicate she died in Canton, Madison County, MS. This is further substantiated by the following posted to my online Dinkins database on 20 January 2003:

Name: Sue Skay Abruscato
Email: sueskay@attbi.com
Note: I don't know where they got Warren Co., NC as her death place, but Lucy Kendrick Dinkins died on December 21, 1849 in Canton, Madison Co., MS.

I also found that Sue Abruscato posted Lucy's will at

Indicates name as Larkin Tyre Dinkins and wife as Margaret Frances Mc Laughlin.
The following reference, Sumter Gazette, indicates Frances M'Loughlin is the wife of Larkins Dinkins.

Leonardo Andreas says Larkin T. Dinkins Family bible from data furnished by F.H. Atkinson "Larkin T. Dinkins m. Frances M. McLaughlin 17 Jan 1833."

Andreas is the source for children and spouses.

The bible owned by Miss Courtnew Atkinson, Rembert, S.C., also indicates his wife as Frances M. McLaughlin.

The SC Magazine of Ancestral Research, Spring 1981, page 93, Marriage and death notices from Sumter Gazette indicates:

Married Jan 19, 1833 Larkin Dinkins to Frances M'Loughlin Married Mar 2, 1833 Tyre J. Dinkins to Esther A. James

Therefore, Larkin Tyre Dinkins and Tyre Jennings Dinkins may in fact be two separate individuals.

Andrea #94: This William Dinkins left Miss and for a time was in La. but at last settled in Texas... The problem of Miss parsons is to locate his parents in S.C... It is said that the son Walter Lewis was named for his grand father. Was it a granfather Collins or Dinkins... Lewis Collins is a very familiar name in Camden Dist. S.C. and many by that name were here... Also there were Lewis Dinkins and Lewis Ballards and last two connected.. I (Andrea) think the name of the son, Wright Dinkins, may be a clue for note the name of Dinkins, in connection with the Wright data... From this name of Wright Dinkins, I feel that William Dinkins #94 may be of the Asa or Samuel Dinkins line named in #83.

William married Frances Collins on 5 Dec 1837. Frances was born on 11 Jul 1814 in Edgefield, South Carolina and died in 1878 in Holmes, Mississippi at age 64.

49. Langdon Hastings Dinkins 1 (Asa5, William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born in 1812 and died in 1879 at age 67.

General Notes: Source of marriage, children, and their spouses: LDS Microfiche #6,019,560, "Andrea Collection, Index to Genealogical Folders in the Leonardo Andrea Collection." The Dinkins Folder.

The 1850 Sumter County federal census is the basis for Langdon, Frances, Mary, Caroline, Walter, Tyre, and Winfield's ages.

The 1860 is the basis for Ellervina, Sarah, and Robert's ages. Also an infant age 3/12 is listed.

Combining the above three sources results in 14 children. However, the following reference resolves the number of children to ten.

In the fall of 1997 I visited the Sumter County Historical Society in Sumter, South Carolina and photocopied pages 102-112 of Historical Sketches of Sumter County, Volume II, by Cassie Nicholes, 1981, which covers the Dinkins family in significant detail. This is now the primary source of Langdon Hastings Dinkins' ten children names and their spouses.

Sketches of Sumter County indicates Langdon Dinkins was an outstanding member of his community. He is said to have been the first commissioner in Sumter and was also a tax collector. He had wide farming interests. An interesting coincidence is connected with his cotton business. In 1840 he sold coton to Elisha Carson in Charleston and his grandson, William, who still has the bill of sale, sold cotton to the same firm 100 years later.

Langdon married Frances Louise James in 1839.6 Frances was born on 25 Apr 1818 and died from Feb to Mar 1898 at age 79.

53. Charles M. Dinkins (Isham5, William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born about 1836 in Of, Houston, Georgia and died on 22 Jun 1863 in Macon, Georgia about age 27.

General Notes: Note: See father, Isham's record. There is a Charles M. Dinkins who witnessed at land transaction for him in Houston County, Ga. in 1829. I suspect it is this Charles' uncle.

Houston County Deed Book K, page 122 contains the following: Georgia Houston County || Having recently arrived at the age of twenty one years, I have this day received of Roscoe Lipsey, who has for years been my guardian, four negroes, to wit Hannah and her three children, Mary, Simon, and Elvira; and which is in full of all claiming and demanding, that I have or hold against the said Roscoe Lipsey, my guardian as aforesaid. This June 1, 1859.

Attest: Eli Warren, Not. Replic and John S. Jobson Recorded June 1, 1859.

Source: 1860 Dooly County, GA, federal census, MF803119, page 423. Listed as C. M. Dinkins aged 23 with $1,000 real estate and $4,500 personal property. Wife is listed as H. H. aged 17. Census was taken on 30 June 1860 in the post office area of Byronsville.

While this is circumstantial, that C. M. is Charles M. and H. H. is Henrietta, for now I am assuming it as correct.

There are no Dinkins listed in the 1840 and 1850 Dooly Co. census.

According to Roster of the Confederate Soldiers of Georgia 1861-1865, Volume I, Muster Roll of Company C, 55th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry Army of Tennessee C.S.A., Dooly County, Georgia, DINKINS, C. M. - Private May 3, 1862. Appointed 5th Sergeant Nov. 10, 1862; 3rd Sergeant Mar. 1863. Discharged May 8, 1863.

While at the Georgia Archives in 1996 I viewed his service record. I was quite surprised at the amount of information that was contained for Charles M. Dinkins. There were thirteen separate records. In summary, it showed that he had enlisted in Montazuma, Macon County, Georgia, on the 3rd of May, 1862 for a period of three years. He was assigned to Company C, 55th Georgia Infantry. Company C was commanded by Captain Wm. J. Collins. The 55th Georgia Infantry was commanded by Colonel Harkie.

(Ancestry.com indicates a C. M. Dinkins enlisted the same time and company. However, it listed Dooly County as the claimed residence.)

The various service records show the following:

Company Muster Roll, enlisted May 3, 1862, Pine Hill, GA for 3 years, age 25, rank private.

Company Muster Roll, May 16, 1862, Dooly County, GA rank private

Register Return, Dec 1862, Detailed after deserters, 21/62. Rank Sgt.

Company Muster Roll, Sept 1 to Dec 31, 1862, Pine Hill, GA, appointed sergeant 10 Nov 1862. Sent after deserters 21 December 1862.

Undated, claim of $15.00 for commutation for rations while on detatched service to arrest deserters and while returning to camp from 20th December 1872 to 12th January 1863. 20 days at 75 cents per day. Paid at Cumberland Gap, Tenn by Major Chas. D. Brown on the 10th day of March 1863.

Company Muster Roll, Jan and Feb 1863, present, rank 5 sergeant.

Company Muster Roll, March and April 1863, Furloughed home from Knoxville, Tenn. Apr. 16, 1863, by order Brig. Gen. Davis..

Company Muster Roll, May and June 1863, rank sergeant. Discharged May 8, 1863.

A claim for pay for deceased soldiers was filed on 4th December 1863 by John Causey, administrator for the estate of Charles M. Dinkins. Thomas W. Sutton appeared to certify that he was well acquainted with both Sutton and Dinkins.

Strangely (to RCL), Thomas Sutton authorized William A. Walton, agent at Richmond, Va. of the Georgia Relief Hospital Association to receive and receipt the amount due him (Sutton) based on the above claim. On December 8, 1863 John L. Parker of the Ordinary, Macon County, certified that John Causey was the legally appointed administrator on the estate of Charles M. Dinkins.

Register of Claims of Deceased Officers and Soldiers from Georgia which were filed for settlement in the Office of the Confederate States Auditor for the War Department presented by William A. Felton, Atty. on Dec. 19, 1863. Where died - Macon Co, Ga.

Treasury Department, Second Auditor's Office on Nov. 17, 1864 requested The Adjutant and Inspector General, C. S. to report the term of enlistment and the service and death, &c., of Charles M. Dinkins deceased late a Sergeant of Captain W. J. Collins' Company "C" 55th Regiment of Georgia Volunteers. The report indicated he died on the 22nd day of june 1863, enlisted May 3/62 3 yrs, discharged May 8th/63.

Unfortunately, I could not find any of the administration records for the estate of Charles M. Dinkins while I was at the Georgia Archives in May 1996. A knowledgeable individual there indicated that during the latter Civil War years not too much attention was paid to these type records.

To complicate things, none of the the above records mention anything about Charles M's wife and children. The final point is that his apparent son Charles D. Dinkins was born in 1865 according to the census. If Charles M. Dinkins died in 1863, it would have been difficult to have a child born in 1865.

Charles married Henrietta H. Henrietta was born in Dec 1842 in Georgia and died after 1910.

General Notes: H. H. Dinkins, aged 17, is listed with her husband C. M. Dinkins, aged 23, in the 1860 Dooly County census residing in Byronsville. Interestingly, the two families above her are McKensey. This is significant in that Henrietta married a McKinzie between 1870 and 1880. She is listed as a McKinzie widow in 1880.

There is no husband listed. Could he have died in the last years of the civil war, since his son Charles was born in 1865 (war ended 9 Apr 1865)?

It is of special interest that the Edmund Leggett household is 2084, just four entries away from the Dinkins entry on the same page. His younger brother Lewis Leggitt is living there and will later marry Henrietta's daughter, Leila.

By coincidence, the 1910 Hunt County, TX federal census lists a Henrietta Mc Kinzie, age 67, born in Georgia, living in the household of Lewis F. Leggett, aged 58 and his daughter Lona, age 21. Could this Henrietta be Lewis' mother-in-law and Lona's grandmother? Apparently it is -

Source: 5 Jun 1880 Merritts District, Cobb County, GA federal census. Page 11, 99/142.

This entry is two pages away from the Louis Leggitt's entry on page 9, 75/116.

As with the 1870 census, there is no husband listed. However, the census in this case indicates she is a widow. The following is a summary of the 1880 entry:

McKenzie,HenriettaW F 37 WidowFarmerNo diseasesGAGAGA
C. D.W M 18 Son Laborer" "" "
AnnieW F 4 Dau At House" """
CoraW F 1 Dau At House" "" "

The ages of the two younger children indicate that Henrietta married the unknown McKinzie before 1876 and he died sometime after 1878.

It is interesting that Cora is the same age as her nephew, Oscar Leggitt.

Henrietta also appears in the 1900 and 1910 Texas census as mother-in-law in Lewis F. Leggitt's household.

Henrietta's ancestry has been a mystery for many years. In 1997 while at the Family History Library I scanned the 1850 Houston County federal census for any occurrences of daughters named Henrietta aged about 7. I found the following:

204 SHINE, William 50 m Farmer 1500 NC (Charles Dinkins was listed as a member of family 407.)
Judyann 28 f GA
Henrietta 8 f GA
William 6 m GA
James 4 m GA
Lemuel 4m m

625 had a wife name Henrietta HADDOCK, age 20.

657 had a daughter Henrretta LOFTIN, age 11.

1021 had a daughter Henrretta SEGIST, age 4.

1052 had a boarder named Henrrietta MOORE, age 19.

1098 had a daughter Henrretta, age 14.

While it initially seemed possible Henrietta SHINE might be our ancestor, she also appears in the 1860 Houston County federal census, the same year that H. H. appeared with C. M. Dinkins in the Dooley County federal census. Also, the 1850 census indicated that William Shine was born in NC. Later census information for Henrietta indicates both her parents were born in Georgia. However, just recently (Nov 2008) I noticed that the 1900 federal census for Hunt County, Texas where she is listed as Louis Leggitt's mother-in-law, she indicated she was born in Georgia, her father in North Carolina and her mother in Georgia.

I did the same search for Dooly County.

25 Jno. W. BARROW had a daughter Henrietta, age 6. (Not in 1860 census.)

691 J. J. COLIER had a daughter Henrietta, age 7. (Checked page 514 in 1860 census and she was listed there as a 16 year old..)

There were also Henriettas aged 1, 4 , 17, 5, and 4. However, none had a family naming pattern that led me to believe any was our ancestor. Ideally, I would like to find a head of family named Oscar with a daughter Henrietta H. age 7.

Likewise I check Pulaski and Bleckley Counties federal 1850 census. These bound Houston County on the south and east. I only found one Henrietta, age 1.

More recently, Ancestry.com made the 1850 federal census available online. The following is the result of a search for individuals named Henrietta who were born in 1843 in Georgia:

Henrietta Harvel District 19, Bryan, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Butch District 19, Bryan, GA abt 1843 Georgia

Henrietta Kirtley Marietta, Cobb, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Colier District 24, Dooly, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Reynolds District 146, Greene, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Duncan Cains, Gwinnett, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta G Ship Not Stated, Murray, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Rankin Columbus, Muscogee, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Roberson Subdivision 65, Newton, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Edwards Division 66, Oglethorpe, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta M Snead Division 73, Richmond, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta E Isdale Division 90, Warren, GA abt 1843 Georgia
Henrietta Mayo Washington, Wilkes, GA abt 1843 Georgia

From the above, Henrietta Colier is the most logical since Dooly County was where C. M. & H. H. Dinkins appear in the 1860 federal census. Unfortunately, there is no further record of her parents (J. J. and Sarah Colier) or her siblings in subsequent records. Likewise, there is no record of a similar family in the 1840 Georgia census.

Hello,
My name is Robbie Porter and I feel like I have been presented with a miracle. Weeks ago, I decided since I am the last of the line of Porters that I would do a little background checking.

I belive this is John Mckinzie Dinkins. It was stored in a box addressed to him with Obituaries of Ichabod Davis. No actual markings to say for sure. However, he does have a strong resemblance to David M Dinkins and his son David Lee Dinkins.

John married Mary Alizabeth Davis 7 in 1872 in Macon, Georgia. Mary was born on 10 Nov 1851 in Macon, , Georgia.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 119 M    i. John Isham Dinkins 7 was born on 1 Dec 1873 in Georgia and died on 12 May 1944 in Dallas, Texas at age 70.

+ 120 F    ii. Lizzie Lee Dinkins 7 was born in 1876.

57. Thomas Dinkins (Isham5, William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born in 1847 in Georgia.

General Notes: M. Thomas Dinkins of Upson Co., GA Posted by: Jerry Allen (ID *****6786) jkells@bellsouth.net Date: May 14, 2006 at 20:55:11of 457

M. Thomas Dinkins married Louisa G. Talley in Upson County, GA on 23 Dec 1855. While much is known about this Tom Dinkins'service in the CSA and of his and Louisa's descendants, I'm not sure his parentage has ever been established. One possibility is a male child that would match the then four-year-old M. Thomas Dinkins in the household of one Isham Dinkins in Houston County, GA in the 1850 census. Isham Dinkins was a notorious character with ties to Regulators from South Carolina, who may have been hanged for attempted murder or some such. If anyone has established Thomas Dinkins' actual parentage, I would appreciate hearing from them.

58. Leander Jo Dinkins (Isham5, William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born on 10 Dec 1849 in Of, Houston, Georgia and died on 17 Jun 1900 in Probably, , Texas at age 50.

General Notes: She is listed in the 1850 census for District 14 for Houston County, Georgia as Josephene.

First marriage: History of Macon County Georgia, Louise Frederick Hays, 1933. Also listed in Macon County marriage records in Hunting for Bears as Leaner J. Denkins.

Source: Appears with Louis in 1900 Texas census in Hunt County.

Preston Leggitt indicates Leanda was Leila Dinkins' sister. However, her approximate birth year (based on 1900 TX census) of Dec 1850 makes her too old to be the daughter of Leila's mother Henrietta. Here is a quote from Preston's Book-2 notes:

Lewis F. married his 2nd wife, Leanda Jo Denkins in 1892. She was the sister of Lelia, his first wife. She was always known to the kids as "Aunt Jo." He and his family were in the Caddo Mills area for the 1900 Census. He listed his occupation as farmer at the time. Residing in the house were Lewis, Leanda (Jo), Louis, and Nonie.

From this I can hypothesize two situations:

First, if Preston is right, Leanda Jo Denkins must be Leila's half sister since she couldn't be Henrietta Dinkins' daughter - she would have to be the daughter of Leila's father by a previous marriage.

Second, Leanda Jo Denkins could have been Leila's aunt, the sister of her father. I tend to favor this second situation since my assumption is that the father is Charles M. Dinkins, born about 1837 according to the 1860 Dooley County, GA federal census.

In either case, The History of Macon County mentions on page 674 that Macon County Wedding Book B indicates a marriage of Warren W. Davis and Leander J. Denkins in 1868. This Leander J. apparently was widowed (or divorced) and married Lewis F. Leggitt in 1892 after the apparent death of Leila shortly following the birth of Nonie in 1888.

Therefore, I have merged the records of Leanda Jo and Leander J. Denkins in my database.

Leander married Warren W. Davis in 1868 in Macon, Georgia. Warren was born about 1848 in Of, Macon, Georgia.

Leander next married Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt, son of Mathew H. Leggitt and Elizabeth Allums, on 12 Nov 1891 in Hunt, Texas. Lewis was born on 13 Apr 1851 in Montezuma, Macon, Georgia and died on 2 Apr 1911 in Caddo Mills, Hunt, Texas at age 59. The cause of his death was Died of dysentery and nephritis.

General Notes: Source: 1860 Macon County Georgia census, page 135. 770 District, 16 August 1860, post office Montezuma. He is listed in the household of his parents as Lewis F. Leggett, age 9.

The 1870 Georgia census for Macon County, Montezuma, Lewis is listed as a nineteen year old in school living with his older brother Edmund and his family. Interestingly, the census shows that his future wife Leila Dinkins is living just four houses up the page as a ten year old student with her mother Heniretta and brother Charles.

Note that this is just about the time that Lewis and Leila were married and struck off for Valdosta where Oscar was born in 1879 and Atlanta for the 1880 census. Apparently Lewis needed a little stake to start his life.

Marriage: Macon Co., Ga. Marriage Book B, 1872-1880, page 446 by J. J. Cheeves, M. G..

Listed in 1880 Georgia census as a farm laborer in Cobb County.

Listed in 1900 Texas census in Hunt County with new wife, Leanda - Louis (Lewis F.) and Nona were living with them. So is Henrietta McKinzie, mother-in-law. She was 57, born Dec. 1842 in Georgia. Her father was born in North Carolina - her mother was born in Georgia. Note that she is too young to be Leanda's mother. (See mention of Leander J. Denkins in Leanda's notes.) Listed in 1910 Texas census in Hunt County with Lona (Nona?) and his mother-in- law, Henrietta McKinzie, age 67. Note that this Henrietta has the same first name and age as Henrietta Dinkins in the 1870 Macon County, Georgia, who was Leila Dinkins' mother.

Name changes from census to census. 1860-Lewis F. Leggett, 1870-Lewis P. Leggett, 1880-Louis Leggitt, 1900-Louis F. Leggitt, 1910-Lewis F. Leggett.

His marriage to Leander Jo Dinkins (Mrs. J. L. Davis) is recorded in Hunt County, TX Marriage Book G, page 271, 12 Nov. 1891.

His marriage to Sarah C. Spears is recorded in Hunt County, TX Marriage Book L, page 202, 21 Oct. 1902.

In a visit with Thelma Renee Leggitt Lea in May, 1996, she recalled her grandfather as a small, square shaped, bearded man. He would always bring them a tin of hard candy when he visited. He drove a "hack" (apparently a vendor's wagon) from which he peddled household and foodstuff items including medicines. Many of his customers did not have money to pay for the items and would pay for them by giving him live chickens. Thelma recalls wire chicken cages hanging from beneath the bed of the hack. He would also then sell the chickens.

Source of death: Texas Death Records 1903-1940 from Brenda Hay, 707 Jonathan Dr., Euless, TX 76040, on 1 Feb 1994. Index indicated name as Louis Fillmore Leggitt, Hunt County, index number 8744. Interestingly, just above Louis' entry, there is an entry Leggitt, Louis Inf. of, Hunt County, Mar ? 1913, 6469.

These are the only two Leggitt entries for Hunt County. However, there is a Mrs. T. V. Leggett, Hunt County, June 8, 1918, 25328. There are no Leggitt or Leggett entries in either Knox or Haskell Counties where Lewis' son Louis lived.

Mae Leggitt told me the following in 1993:

Daddy told me a story the night before we moved from the farm to Cheyenne. He said "His father was the youngest of 7 sons and they lived in Georgia on a plantation. He said the older brothers were playing poker one night and started losing. They lost all their money and finally the only thing left to wager was the plantation. The debt was so large the winner said "double or nothing" and they lost the hand and the plantation. So that was the reason his father changed the spelling of his last name and moved his family to east Texas." He also said they were in a terrible flu epidemic and his eyes had been very weak from that time on.

Needless to say, this story does not coincide with the will of his father and mother and the indenture where Clemintina effectively buys his portion of their estate.

The following is from Preston Leggitt's Leggitt Family History (1994):

CHAPTER 6. LEWIS FILLMORE "JACK" LEGGITT (My Great Grandfather)

I read somewhere that after the War Between the States, many of the houses in the South were found vacant with the initials G.T.T. scrawled across the door -- Gone To Texas.

Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt was the youngest son of Matthew Hunter Leggett and Elizabeth Allums Leggett. He was 13 years old when his father Matthew died. His mother Elizabeth died when he was 18. He lived for a while with Doctor Edmund A. Leggitt, his brother. He is shown on the 1870 Census as "still at school", and living with Edmund and family.

He married Lelia E. Dinkins on January 24, 1878 in Valdosta, Lowndes Co. Georgia. They had 3 children:

1.) Oscar Jack Leggitt born October 14, 1878 in Valdosta, Georgia. Oscar married Maggie Inez Hussey Harrington in 1915 in Berlin, Oklahoma and died February 20, 1954 in Crawford, Oklahoma.

2.) Louis F. Leggitt, born September 21, 1881 in Macon County, Georgia. Louis married Effie Octavene White December 15, 1901

3.) Nonie D. Leggitt, born December 14, 1888 in Texas. died August 26, 1933.

Times were very hard in Georgia after the war and it was hard to make a living. Between 1881 and 1888, Lewis Fillmore moved his young family to Texas. They first came to Caddo Mills, near Greenville, Hunt County, Texas.

At this time, there were already other Leggetts in Texas. Leggetts had been in Texas at least since 1836 when John T. Leggett and his brother came from Pike County Georgia to fight against the Mexicans. Matthew H. Leggett owned land in Pike County in the late 1820's and early 1830's. I don't know if any of these people were even related but more than likely they were at least cousins. As early as 1811, a David Leggett had received a pass to go West through the Mississippi Territory. A J.S. Leggett got married in nearby Collin County of Texas in 1870, at least 11 years before Lewis Fillmore Leggitt brought his young family to Texas. This county is Northeast of Dallas near Lake Lavon, very close to Caddo Mills, where Lewis Fillmore first settled in Texas. There were several other Leggett families in the Caddo Mills-Lavon-Greenville area including a Doctor J. L. Leggett who died in 1902. Perhaps Lewis Fillmore Leggitt first heard about Texas through letters from these people to relatives back in Georgia.

Lewis' wife Lelia Denkins Leggitt reportedly died as a result of complications in the childbirth of Nonie in 1888. Nonie was mentally retarded from birth and never progressed very far in school.

Lewis F. married his 2nd wife, Leanda Jo Denkins in 1892. She was the sister (RCL - really her aunt) of Lelia, his first wife. She was always known to the kids as "Aunt Jo." He and his family were in the Caddo Mills area for the 1900 Census. He listed his occupation as farmer at the time. Residing in the house were Lewis, Leanda (Jo), Louis, and Nonie. (RCL note: see Leanda's notes - she was actually Lelia's aunt, not her sister.)

Name:L. F. LEGGITT
Spouse:J. L. [Mrs] DAVIS
Marriage Date:12 Nov 1891
County:Hunt
State:TX

By 1910 Census, Lewis Fillmore Leggitt was again a widower. Living in the house were Nonie, Lewis, a Henrietta McKenzie. Aunt Thelma said Mrs. Mckenzie was the mother of Lelia and Leanda Jo.

Aunt Thelma Lea recalled that he worked as a traveling salesman or peddler. He operated a mule drawn wagon traveling from house to house, farm to farm, selling pots, pans, sewing notions, food items, tools, etc...and bartering in most cases because most people had no money. Underneath the wagon, cages were mounted which held the chickens and eggs that many people would barter for goods.

Lewis Fillmore Leggitt died April 2, 1911. He died at Caddo Mills, Texas. I have been unable to locate his grave at this time. (RCL note: see the note at the end of Lewis' son Louis' notes. It details the efforts Preston has gone to in attempting to find Lewis's grave. He says he will take some liberty here and suppose that if a man (Louis Leggitt, my Grandfather) had buried his father only 2 years before at Caddo Mills, then his child is stillborn, he would want the child buried with his Father. We know that the child was brought from Greenville to Caddo Mills for burial. I now believe that the child and the child's Grandfather Lewis Fillmore Leggitt are buried together in Elm Creek Cemetery. Cemetery listings in the State Genealogical library show 7 or 8 unmarked graves in Elm Creek Cemetery. I believe we now know possibly who 2 of these are. It may be that the graves are marked, but stones are buried or missing.

RCL note: In April 1996 Preston Leggitt discovered a small metal storage box owned by his Aunt Thelma Lea which was in the possession of her daughter Evelyn Fletcher. In addition to some insurance papers, the box contained several pages from a family bible and a portrait of Lewis F. Leggitt. The bible pages contained the following inscriptions:

General Notes: Source: 1880 Georgia census, Cobb County.

Source: 1870 Georgia census, Macon County. (See mother.)

In various records, her name is spelled Lela, Leila, and Lelia.

Marriage: Early Georgia roundup Marriages, Maddox. Macon County Lewis F. Leggett and Lela E. Dinkins, 1878.

According to Preston Leggitt, Lelia died in Texas shortly after her last child, Nona, was born. He does not know where she is buried. Later, Preston found a bible record indicating Lelia's death as 3 Jun 1891.

There is a tombstone in the Berlin Cemetery in Berlin, Oklahoma marked as Lela Leggitt. That headstone was prepared at the direction of Kate Leggitt McDaniel many, many years after the burial. Kate mistakenly assumed that the body was that of her grandmother. In reality it was actually the third wife of Lewis Fillmore Leggitt, Sarah. Sarah was Oscar's and Nona's step-mother. See the notes of Nona Leggitt for additional explanation.

The actual tombstone reads:

In loving memory to our grandmother
LELA LEGGITT
Died 1913
Wife of L. F. Leggitt
Mother of Lewis, Oscar, and Nonie



Leila married Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt, son of Mathew H. Leggitt and Elizabeth Allums, on 24 Jan 1878 in Macon, Georgia. Lewis was born on 13 Apr 1851 in Montezuma, Macon, Georgia and died on 2 Apr 1911 in Caddo Mills, Hunt, Texas at age 59. The cause of his death was Died of dysentery and nephritis.

General Notes: Source: 1860 Macon County Georgia census, page 135. 770 District, 16 August 1860, post office Montezuma. He is listed in the household of his parents as Lewis F. Leggett, age 9.

The 1870 Georgia census for Macon County, Montezuma, Lewis is listed as a nineteen year old in school living with his older brother Edmund and his family. Interestingly, the census shows that his future wife Leila Dinkins is living just four houses up the page as a ten year old student with her mother Heniretta and brother Charles.

LDS microfilm 310946. This indenture made the ninth day of January in the year one thousand eight hundred and seventy five between Lewis F. Leggitt of the County of Macon and State of Georgia of the first part and Clemintina M. Leggitt of the same place of the second part. Whereforth the said Lewis F. Leggitt of the first part for and in consideration of the sum of four hundred and fifty dollars cash in hand paid before the delivery hereof hathe bargains and sold save by these presents doth grant and convey unto the said Clementina M. Leggitt her heirs, Executors, Administrators and aforgive forever all and signatures his undivided interest both real and personal in the Estate of both Elizabeth and Mathew H. Leggitt both situated in the fifteenth district of originally Houston now Macon County State of Georgia together with all and singular the testaments --- --- --- of --- thereunto belonging and the --- rents, --- and profits thereof and all the estate title and interest of the said Lewis F. Leggitt to the said premise as any part therof.

Signed by Lewis F. Leggitt and witnessed by Edmund A. Leggett

Note that this is just about the time that Lewis and Leila were married and struck off for Valdosta where Oscar was born in 1879 and Atlanta for the 1880 census. Apparently Lewis needed a little stake to start his life.

Marriage: Macon Co., Ga. Marriage Book B, 1872-1880, page 446 by J. J. Cheeves, M. G..

Listed in 1880 Georgia census as a farm laborer in Cobb County.

Listed in 1900 Texas census in Hunt County with new wife, Leanda - Louis (Lewis F.) and Nona were living with them. So is Henrietta McKinzie, mother-in-law. She was 57, born Dec. 1842 in Georgia. Her father was born in North Carolina - her mother was born in Georgia. Note that she is too young to be Leanda's mother. (See mention of Leander J. Denkins in Leanda's notes.) Listed in 1910 Texas census in Hunt County with Lona (Nona?) and his mother-in- law, Henrietta McKinzie, age 67. Note that this Henrietta has the same first name and age as Henrietta Dinkins in the 1870 Macon County, Georgia, who was Leila Dinkins' mother.

Name changes from census to census. 1860-Lewis F. Leggett, 1870-Lewis P. Leggett, 1880-Louis Leggitt, 1900-Louis F. Leggitt, 1910-Lewis F. Leggett.

His marriage to Leander Jo Dinkins (Mrs. J. L. Davis) is recorded in Hunt County, TX Marriage Book G, page 271, 12 Nov. 1891.

His marriage to Sarah C. Spears is recorded in Hunt County, TX Marriage Book L, page 202, 21 Oct. 1902.

In a visit with Thelma Renee Leggitt Lea in May, 1996, she recalled her grandfather as a small, square shaped, bearded man. He would always bring them a tin of hard candy when he visited. He drove a "hack" (apparently a vendor's wagon) from which he peddled household and foodstuff items including medicines. Many of his customers did not have money to pay for the items and would pay for them by giving him live chickens. Thelma recalls wire chicken cages hanging from beneath the bed of the hack. He would also then sell the chickens.

Source of death: Texas Death Records 1903-1940 from Brenda Hay, 707 Jonathan Dr., Euless, TX 76040, on 1 Feb 1994. Index indicated name as Louis Fillmore Leggitt, Hunt County, index number 8744. Interestingly, just above Louis' entry, there is an entry Leggitt, Louis Inf. of, Hunt County, Mar ? 1913, 6469.

These are the only two Leggitt entries for Hunt County. However, there is a Mrs. T. V. Leggett, Hunt County, June 8, 1918, 25328. There are no Leggitt or Leggett entries in either Knox or Haskell Counties where Lewis' son Louis lived.

Mae Leggitt told me the following in 1993:

Daddy told me a story the night before we moved from the farm to Cheyenne. He said "His father was the youngest of 7 sons and they lived in Georgia on a plantation. He said the older brothers were playing poker one night and started losing. They lost all their money and finally the only thing left to wager was the plantation. The debt was so large the winner said "double or nothing" and they lost the hand and the plantation. So that was the reason his father changed the spelling of his last name and moved his family to east Texas." He also said they were in a terrible flu epidemic and his eyes had been very weak from that time on.

Needless to say, this story does not coincide with the will of his father and mother and the indenture where Clemintina effectively buys his portion of their estate.

The following is from Preston Leggitt's Leggitt Family History (1994):

CHAPTER 6. LEWIS FILLMORE "JACK" LEGGITT (My Great Grandfather)

I read somewhere that after the War Between the States, many of the houses in the South were found vacant with the initials G.T.T. scrawled across the door -- Gone To Texas.

Lewis Fillmore "Jack" Leggitt was the youngest son of Matthew Hunter Leggett and Elizabeth Allums Leggett. He was 13 years old when his father Matthew died. His mother Elizabeth died when he was 18. He lived for a while with Doctor Edmund A. Leggitt, his brother. He is shown on the 1870 Census as "still at school", and living with Edmund and family.

He married Lelia E. Dinkins on January 24, 1878 in Valdosta, Lowndes Co. Georgia. They had 3 children:

1.) Oscar Jack Leggitt born October 14, 1878 in Valdosta, Georgia. Oscar married Maggie Inez Hussey Harrington in 1915 in Berlin, Oklahoma and died February 20, 1954 in Crawford, Oklahoma.

2.) Louis F. Leggitt, born September 21, 1881 in Macon County, Georgia. Louis married Effie Octavene White December 15, 1901

3.) Nonie D. Leggitt, born December 14, 1888 in Texas. died August 26, 1933.

Times were very hard in Georgia after the war and it was hard to make a living. Between 1881 and 1888, Lewis Fillmore moved his young family to Texas. They first came to Caddo Mills, near Greenville, Hunt County, Texas.

At this time, there were already other Leggetts in Texas. Leggetts had been in Texas at least since 1836 when John T. Leggett and his brother came from Pike County Georgia to fight against the Mexicans. Matthew H. Leggett owned land in Pike County in the late 1820's and early 1830's. I don't know if any of these people were even related but more than likely they were at least cousins. As early as 1811, a David Leggett had received a pass to go West through the Mississippi Territory. A J.S. Leggett got married in nearby Collin County of Texas in 1870, at least 11 years before Lewis Fillmore Leggitt brought his young family to Texas. This county is Northeast of Dallas near Lake Lavon, very close to Caddo Mills, where Lewis Fillmore first settled in Texas. There were several other Leggett families in the Caddo Mills-Lavon-Greenville area including a Doctor J. L. Leggett who died in 1902. Perhaps Lewis Fillmore Leggitt first heard about Texas through letters from these people to relatives back in Georgia.

Lewis' wife Lelia Denkins Leggitt reportedly died as a result of complications in the childbirth of Nonie in 1888. Nonie was mentally retarded from birth and never progressed very far in school.

Lewis F. married his 2nd wife, Leanda Jo Denkins in 1892. She was the sister (RCL - really her aunt) of Lelia, his first wife. She was always known to the kids as "Aunt Jo." He and his family were in the Caddo Mills area for the 1900 Census. He listed his occupation as farmer at the time. Residing in the house were Lewis, Leanda (Jo), Louis, and Nonie. (RCL note: see Leanda's notes - she was actually Lelia's aunt, not her sister.)

Database: Texas Marriages, 1851-1900

Name:L. F. LEGGITT
Spouse:J. L. [Mrs] DAVIS
Marriage Date:12 Nov 1891
County:Hunt
State:TX

By 1910 Census, Lewis Fillmore Leggitt was again a widower. Living in the house were Nonie, Lewis, a Henrietta McKenzie. Aunt Thelma said Mrs. Mckenzie was the mother of Lelia and Leanda Jo.

Aunt Thelma Lea recalled that he worked as a traveling salesman or peddler. He operated a mule drawn wagon traveling from house to house, farm to farm, selling pots, pans, sewing notions, food items, tools, etc...and bartering in most cases because most people had no money. Underneath the wagon, cages were mounted which held the chickens and eggs that many people would barter for goods.

Lewis Fillmore Leggitt died April 2, 1911. He died at Caddo Mills, Texas. I have been unable to locate his grave at this time. (RCL note: see the note at the end of Lewis' son Louis' notes. It details the efforts Preston has gone to in attempting to find Lewis's grave. He says he will take some liberty here and suppose that if a man (Louis Leggitt, my Grandfather) had buried his father only 2 years before at Caddo Mills, then his child is stillborn, he would want the child buried with his Father. We know that the child was brought from Greenville to Caddo Mills for burial. I now believe that the child and the child's Grandfather Lewis Fillmore Leggitt are buried together in Elm Creek Cemetery. Cemetery listings in the State Genealogical library show 7 or 8 unmarked graves in Elm Creek Cemetery. I believe we now know possibly who 2 of these are. It may be that the graves are marked, but stones are buried or missing.

RCL note: In April 1996 Preston Leggitt discovered a small metal storage box owned by his Aunt Thelma Lea which was in the possession of her daughter Evelyn Fletcher. In addition to some insurance papers, the box contained several pages from a family bible and a portrait of Lewis F. Leggitt. The bible pages contained the following inscriptions:

Oh my gosh, yep, thought it was a miracle. I live not very far from the old Dinkins place. As you can see by my notes, both grandparents died very very young and my father, William Robert Porter, was a child. Maggie Lee Porter (Affectionately known as Aunt Baa) raised him and my parents were told they would never have children, actually had one 6 years after they married, Aunt Baa raised me also. Mother was in and out of hospitals forever and I lived with Aunt Baa most of my life.

I was only child, mother was only child, on and on, my family is deceased now. Only me...well, you know what that meansssss.....you have to travel here and see me. Will show you where they lived, where some relative, Margaret Dinkins Harvard (named my daughter after her) in a log cabin until she died....she never had children. The other Dinkins, Ethel Dinkins married a Dinkins. She died in the nursing home near Savannah several years ago. That is all I know about Dinkins, except they owned Eubilla a once thriving place where I have heard my mother tell stories about dancing holes in her shoes during the depression, slipping back into her father;s store and replacing them and hearing her father brag about how tough those shoes were. LOL

So you travel alot, come here!!!!!You are my closest relatives now.....I live between Cordele, GA and Americus, GA at Lake Blackshear. Look on the map and find Georgia Veterans State Park. My property adjoins the states. I live alone, naturally. I am divorced. There is plenty of camping space at the park or be glad for you to park here, lots of room here toooooo. Gosh, cannot believe this. And found you totally by accident.

I have a daughter in California and a son. They write for Aaron Spelling, er...
I taught school in Montezuma (Macon Co) and taught John Leggitt, gosh I wonder//////??????

Ok, so just stop now and make your plans. It is still hot here....hate the heat. Going to Vegas next month, are you close???

You can call if you would like to. .. would love to hear your voices. This is pretty exciting to meeeeee.

Going to your website now...

Please write back and tell me all about you.

Thank you for taking the time to correspond with me on the Dinkins Family.

We are talking about the same family, but the William Patterson Dinkins that I'm looking for - is the son of :

Henry Harrison Dinkins
Born: in Mecklenburg County in N.C. - 1841
Died in 1874 from a Hernia in Canton, Mississippi.

And

Margaret (Herreld) Dinkins
Born 1848
Died in 1896
She was a school teacher.
She published a book.

They had two sons:

**** 1) William Patterson Dinkins
Born: About 1872 in (Canton) Mississippi.
Died: In southern Louisiana (Baldwin, Franklin, - St. Mary Parish)
Married: Nona / Nonie - Maiden name and year/place - Unknown.
Occupation: General Stores - They moved around quite alot over the years.


This is where I come in: My Grandmother Edith Hunter was put up for adoption with her half brother Gary Grayson in 1913 at the United Methodist Children's Home in Little Rock, Arkansas. They had lived in Dermott, AR - Chicot County, until the death of their mother (1913), Mary (Goings) Hunter Grayson. At one time William had also lived there too. There is some question about who the father is of Gary - Dudley / Dubbley Grayson or William Patterson Dinkins.

The Dinkins adopted Gary Grayson AKA William Patterson Dinkins, Jr. (Billy). Edith was not adopted, but taken from the orphanage by the Dinkins at 13 yrs. of age as a nurse maid to Billy (baby). The Dinkins were Edith's childrens grandparents.

Billy and Edith were listed as William and Nona Dinkins only children on the 1920 Census of Louisiana of East Feliciana Parish - Wilson Township, LA.

2) Henry Harreld Dinkins
Born: November 16,1874 (Richland Parish, LA / Canton, Mississippi - ?)
Lived: St. Mary Parish ( Lafayette, Baldwin, Franklin - Louisiana Area )
Died: December 3, 1960 Scott, LA ( Baldwin area)
Occupation: General Store / Plantation Store - Sold more horse buggies than anyone else in the U.S.
Married: Stephanie Bercegeay (French/Cajun girl from New Orleans) in New Orleans on February 15, 1900.

They had three children:

1) Henry Harreld Dinkins, Jr

2) Ladd Augustine Dinkins

3) Stephanie Dinkins

Note: Ladd Dinkins had two children, Ladd Jr. Dinkins and Airey (Dinkins) Ellis. I made contact with Airey, who lives in LA. and she sent quite a bit of data on the Dinkins family that I would be more than happy to share with you. One sheet details names and dates of their births.

General Notes: According to his family, Oscar was born in Valdosta, GA 18 October 1879. However, his parents were married in Macon County and during the census taken in June 1880, they were in northwestern GA in Cobb County.

Source: 1880 Georgia census, Cobb County, Vol 6, ED 32, Sheet 9, line 22.
See his father's notes.

According to his son, Jack Leggitt, Oscar attempted to join the U.S. Army Cavalry during the Spanish-American War in 1898. Oscar passed the physical requirements but his horse was too short. At that time enlistees had to provide their own horse and there were physical requirements for it as well as the man.

I cannot find Oscar Leggitt in the 1900 census for Texas, Georgia, or Oklahoma. However, on 16 June 1900 when the federal census was taken, his father, step-mother, brother and sister were enumerated in Justice Precinct Number 3, Hunt County, Texas.

Source: 1910 Texas census, Knox County, Vol 89, ED 154, Sheet 4, line 49.

An interesting fact of the 1910 census is that Oscar is listed as a boarder on the farm next to his brother Louis' farm.

Source: 1920 Oklahoma census, Roger Mills County, Berlin Township, ED 149, Sheet 5A, line 23, house 83 /family 87. Enumerated on 31 January 1920.

His daughters, Clara and Kate, wrote in the Memories of Berlin Oklahoma in 1977 that Oscar had married a (name unknown) widow about 1910 who was in very ill health. She had a small daughter. He nursed his wife and cared for the little girl until the woman died. He took the girl back to Texas to her mother's family. In 2012, FamilySearch.org listed a marriage record for Oscar Leggitt and Edna Vowell who married 19 Feb 1912 in Custer, Oklahoma, United States. Ancestry.com lists an Edna Vowell Vassello as a 21 year old sister-in-law in the household of Frank M Vassello in in the 1910 federal census for Clinton, Custer, Oklahoma. There is a four year old girl named Ruby Vassello just below Edna's entry. Both Frank and Edna were born in Texas. From this I assume Edna was married to Frank Vassello's brother and they had Ruby. The brother probably died before 1910. When I shared this with Oscar's youngest daughter Mae, she said "Daddy told me his first wife had tuberculosis." When I shared this with Oscar's youngest daughter Mae, she said "Daddy told me his first wife had tuberculosis."

A family story tells of the time, before Oscar married Inez, that he went on a cattle drive to Kansas. The men ran out of money on the way home. They bought a cow for $2.00. They shot her and ground the meat into hamburger. They sold hamburgers to get enough money to get home.

One night at a dance in the home of John Taylor he met the sparkling vivacious young widow, Inez Harrington. They were married in 1914. His gentle nature was never a match for her aggressive domineering spirit. However, he did his best to provide for their growing brood and he loved her dearly until he died in 1954.

Naomi Hussey wrote Mae Leggitt in 1963 "Your own Father had a very marked sense of rhythm. All of you probably are too young to remember when he and your mother were much younger, he danced with great enjoyment and skill. I am sure that is akin to music appreciation."

From Oscar the children learned to be kind and think of others; also, he stressed always pay your debts. He was a kind and gentle man. He taught the older girls to read and write. Both parents were very intelligent and put a great store on books and newspapers.

One time the young girls needed to go to Elk City to buy school clothes. Oscar took them in their old '26 Dodge pickup. Going and coming they had 21 flats. One day Oscar took the Dodge to Sayre and traded it even for a Model A Ford.

Once four of the children went to a party over north of Spritzer's Store on the grey mare, ol' John. When they came home late, they all went to sleep on her back. Ol' John came right on home and up to the barn door.

When yo-yo's came into vogue, the girls fashioned a 20 foot string on one. They would sit on the platform of the windmill and yo-yo.

At breakfast Oscar would always say, "The start of another day, until someone spoils it." Someone usually did.

There was a dry sand bed north of their house. Oscar made money pulling cars through it with a team of horses.

Oscar was a farmer most of the time after he married Inez. For a few years, just before his death, he lived with his daughter Clara in California and worked as a laborer in the construction business. His children recall that Oscar had many physical ailments, brought on by hard work, no doubt. They feel he really didn't like to farm. He would have much preferred a regular day time job.

There is a discrepancy in the date of Oscar's death. At the time of his death, he was living in a mobile home on Jack and Kate McDaniel in Crawford, OK. He was found dead the morning of February 20, 1954. We do not know if he died the night of February 19 or the morning of February 20. The tombstone indicates February 19 and the obituary indicates February 20. The death certificate cited below states the date of death as February 20.

Death certificate: Oklahoma state file number 002843, indicated death at 1:00 AM, Feb 20, 1954.

Death resulted directly from myocardial infarction, antecedent cause due to coronary sclerosis. Other significant condition was angina pectoris.

Mae Leggitt Finney provided me the following obituary:

Noted events in their marriage were:

• Marriage:

General Notes: Much of the historical reminiscences comes from stories recalled by her children, Clara, Jack, Kate, and Mae. I have intermingled the stories in an attempt to maintain a proper timeline.

She was named Margaret Inez. The Margaret was from her Aunt Margaret Catherine Capps whom she knew as Aunt Maggie. Many references to Inez are as Maggie Inez.

Inez Hussey was reared and grew to young womanhood west of Sayre. She met and married Ernest Harrington from Berlin, OK, in 1907. The young couple filed on land north of Berlin near the Indian Hills. They had two pretty blond girls. When the girls were very small, in about 1910 Ernest developed the dread disease tuberculosis. They went by covered wagon to New Mexico so Ernest could regain his health. However, the illness soon overcame Ernest and he died in 1912. Inez returned to the claim with her two girls. Her brother, Franzel Hussey, came to live with her and do the heavy work.

Inez met Oscar Leggitt at a dance at the John Taylor farm. Her sister Naomi recalled that Inez and Oscar had great natural musical and danced beautifully together. She married Oscar Leggitt in 1914. They lived for a while on the Pittsburg Ranch north of Berlin. They lived in a house made of sandstone and logs. It was one of the buildings surrounding the main ranch house. Later, they moved to a small two room house near Edenview.

See pictures of two land grants made to Inez Leggitt in 1917. One was for 160 acres in the northwest quarter of Section twenty-seven in Township twelve north of Range twenty-three west of the Indian Median, Oklahoma. The other was for the north half of the northwest quarter of the same Section.

In about 1920 the family lived in a half dugout with tar paper on the exposed lumber. A big rain had washed some of the tar paper from the boards and down into the dugout. Hazel woke up in the night and stepped out of bed onto water and drowned kittens. At that same place the girls got very sick, so Inez called Dr. Steel from Berlin. When the girls heard the horse and buggy coming, the big girls led the little ones out the washed hole in the wall and hid until they heard the buggy leaving, they were probably expected black draught (a popular purgative of the time that had the consistency of dried tea leaves and about a tablespoon was taken orally dry). Anyway, they all got well.

In the early 1920's, Oscar and Inez moved their growing family to some land they purchased from the Pittsburg Land Company. It was seven miles northwest of Berlin. Inez's brother, Elmer Hussey, died from mustard gas he had been exposed to during World War I. Inez received a portion of his insurance. She used the money to build a house and set out an orchard. The soil was sandy and very fertile. They built a big comfortable house with six rooms. While a Mr. Montgomery from Needmore was building the new house, Hazel and Clara hauled a load of lumber from Cheyenne in the wagon. The girls recall they were given a lot of responsibility at a very young age. They always did their best.

Before the house was finished, one day Inez told the girls to throw their mattress out of an upstairs window and take it to the new house. She then took the mattress inside and gave birth to Jack.

The girls recall that Inez was a school teacher and worked through the years with the county agent to learn new skills of farm work.

Oscar and Inez had a thing about varmints getting their chickens. One time Inez shot a hawk in the air with a chicken, through the screen door she killed the hawk.

Oscar raised cotton and broom corn to sell for a cash crop. He raised cane to make into molasses and feed for the stock. They remained on the farm until about 1950 when the last of the seven children was raised and gone.

For the next twenty or so years, Inez lived in a little house in Cheyenne, OK. She remained very active in the community until she was nearly 85. She would frequently contribute historical articles to the local newspapers.

She maintained her thing about varmits. A family story has it that a neighbor's bull would lean over her fence and eat Inez's garden. On day she got fed up with it. She emptied the shot out of shotgun shell and put salt rind in the casing. When she shot the bull with it, the two rinds made a perfect "X" on the bull's forehead and killed it dead away

When Inez died in 1980, this story circulated all over Cheyenne. Several years earlier in Cheyenne the gas was supplied by a very unreliable pipe line coming from the south. It was out of service a lot of the time one winter. Giles Peterson managed the repairs. Residents had to manage the best they could for some heat. Inez usually went to a neighbor's house. One day she met Giles Peterson on the street. She said, "When I die, should I go to hell, I hope you are furnishing the gas."

General Notes: Louis Leggett's marriage to Octavene White is recorded in the Hunt County, TX Marriage Book J, page 336, 5 Jul. 1899.

Census 1900 Texas, Hunt County, ED 128, Sheet 12, line 95.

Census 1910 Texas, Knox County, Vol 89, ED 154, Sheet 66, line 37.

Census 1920 Texas, Haskell County, Vol 89, ED 137, Sheet 7, line 59.

Note: The 1910 census indicated spouse as Octa, born abt 1884 in Missouri.
Her father was born in Missouri and her mother was born in Illinois.

The 1920 census indicated spouse as Effie, born abt 1885 in Missouri. Her father and mother were both born in Missouri.

Haskell County is immediately south of Knox County. Louis must have moved since there were no county boundary changes between 1910 and 1920.

The following is from Preston Leggitt's Leggitt Family History (1994):

CHAPTER 7. LOUIS AND OCTA

LOUIS F. LEGGITT was my Grandfather. (Papaw). He was born September 21, 1881 in Macon County, Georgia. By the age of 6, his father, LEWIS FILLMORE LEGGETT, had brought the young family to Texas. He grew up on the farm near Caddo Mills in East Texas. I can find no record of a middle name, just the initial F. I am sure it is Fillmore, the same as his dad's, but Aunt Thelma Lea believed there was no middle name, just the initial.

Louis married EFFIE OCTAVENE WHITE (Octa)(Mamaw) on December 15th, 1901. She was the daughter of George White who had migrated to Texas from Missouri. The Whites had been very wealthy before the Civil War. Like many Southern families, they were practically destitute after the war. George was known to like his liquor. George and wife in later years lived at Stamford, Texas and ran a bus line there. He and his wife are buried at Stamford.

Louis was farming at the time and worked some as a carpenter. In March of 1902, their first son, RAYMOND LEGGITT, was born.

THELMA RENEE LEGGITT was born July 12th, 1905. Aunt Thelma indicated to me that she was born in a house on Main Street in Caddo Mills, Texas.

In 1907, my aunt, LILLIE ALATIA LEGGITT, was born.

In July of 1909, my uncle, WILLIE ROY LEGGITT, was born.

Aunt Thelma reported that they rented land and moved a lot during these years. By the 1910 census, Louis had moved his family West to Munday in Knox County. Louis was 28, and Octa was 26. They had 4 children at the time. Raymond was 7, Thelma was 4, Alatia was 2, and Roy was 11 months old. Papaw was working as a farmer and carpenter.

At this same time, (1910 Census), Lewis Fillmore Leggitt was still living in Caddo Mills and employed as a peddler. He was a widower and 58 at the time. Living with him were his Mother-in-Law, Henrietta McKenzie, and Papaw's sister, Nona, who was retarded. She was 21 at the time.

During the winter of 1910, Lewis Fillmore got sick and Papaw moved his family back to Caddo Mills. On April 2nd, 1911, Papaw's dad, LOUIS FILLMORE LEGGITT, died at Caddo Mills in Hunt County, Texas.

After moving back to Caddo Mills, Papaw worked for a while as a carpenter in Greenville. He did quite a bit of work for one of the wealthy Greenville lawyers. The lawyer took a liking to him and offered to let him rent a farm owned by the lawyer. The blackland farm was located in the fertile bottomlands of the Trinity River. The family moved to this farm near Lavon, Texas, and farmed there until moving to O"Brien, Texas in Knox county about 1919.

On May 3rd, 1915, my father, GLENN CURTCHELL LEGGITT, was born on the farm near Lavon, Texas. The farm on which Glenn was born, now lies at the bottom of Lake Lavon, Northeast of Dallas. The lake was built in the 1930's and the land was flooded. The house where my father was born was supposedly moved up out of the way of the filling lake.

I remember as a child, our family going to Roy and Bert Leggitt's house in Gladewater, Texas to visit. We then all piled in a car and drove Northwest up to the Lake Lavon area. By this time (Probably in the late 1950's) Lake Lavon had long ago been filled up to the dam by the Corps of Engineers. I remember Dad and Uncle Roy were amazed to find the house that they had grown up in. The house had been moved out of the lake bottom area before the lake was filled. A number of the houses in the area had been moved to this location near one of the state parks and sold to individuals to rebuild in this new location. In 1993, I drove to this location and found 1 house located in Lakeland Park subdivision which would have been old enough to fit this description. I could not confirm that this was the house. This park was located on the East side of Lavon Lake (Northeast of Dallas) and situated about halfway between Lavon and Farmersville.

By the way, there are a number of Leggetts in the IOOF cemetery in Farmersville. I do not know their relationship if any.

World War I started in 1914. The war continued until 1918. None of the Leggitt family served in the military, but Mamaw's brother, Alfred White, was in the navy. Her sister, Ada, married Cass Wattenberger. Mamaw's parents, Mr. and Mrs. White owned a bus line running between Stamford and Abilene, Texas. Mamaw's father, Geroge White, died and was buried in Stamford, Texas. His wife "Granny White" was buried there also.

My aunt, OPAL VIOLA LEGGITT was born in 1917 on the same farm as my dad. The following year, 1918, my aunt, OLETA ALLENE LEGGITT, was also born there. By 1919, Papaw had moved the family back out to Knox County and this time settled near Rochester and O'Brien. The land was brown instead of black, and the land was much sandier, but the cotton grew well and so did the young family. Papaw worked as a farmer and supplemented his income as a carpenter.

Raymond married Opal Dunlap. They moved to the "High Plains" sometime in the 1920's. He purchased land South of Lubbock at Woodrow (Cooper) and began farming. He was very successful and later purchased additional farmland 7 miles Northwest of Shallowater, 2 miles Southeast of Whitharral, and at Spade, Texas. He loved to hunt and went on several big-game hunts in New Mexico and Colorado.

Raymond talked his mother and father into moving to the "High Plains." This was probably sometime in the late 1920's. I can remember the stories Dad told me of coming up onto the "Caprock" in the old truck with the furniture and belongings of Mamaw and Papaw. Dad said that they were moving in an old Model T truck. When they got to the big hill up onto the Caprock at Silverton, the truck did not have enough power to pull itself up the hill. Since trucks use a much lower gear for the reverse gear, they turned the truck around and backed up the 2 mile hill to get on top of the Caprock.

After a year or two, Mamaw reportedly hated the "High Plains" and the annual dust storms in the Spring. She talked Papaw into moving back to Rochester.

After moving back to Rochester, Dad "courted" and married RETTA LOUISE ELLIS in Rule, Texas. They were married on October 17th, 1934. I will tell what I know about these two in Chapter 8.

Mamaw and Papaw ran a filling station for a while in Rochester until he retired.
The filling station was on the South side of the street on Main Street just North of the High School. They lived in a white frame house across the street East of the High School.

Their daughter Alatia married Paul Melton. Paul and Alatia farmed about 6 miles Southwest of Rochester and looked after Mamaw and Papaw. Their children attended the Rochester schools.

I can remember a few times when we would go to visit and stay with Mamaw and Papaw. He was a very stern man and all the children had to really behave or he would get on to them. He probably was very proud of his grandkids. But, I believe he was a firm believer in the motto that children should be seen and not heard.

Papaw died in 1952. My last recollection of Papaw was going to his funeral and then afterwards the aunts and uncles cleaned out his closets. I remember the white frame house on the East side of the street and the big, cool, shady porch. I remember the big floral patterns on the carpet. Mamaw gave me the Steroscope and several hundred pictures of the World War I times to look at and keep as a momemto of my Grandfather. After a year or so, Mamaw came to live with us at the farm at Shallowater.

Here is a note that Preston Leggitt provided me in 2004:

By the 1910 census, Louis had moved his family West to Munday in Knox County. Louis was 28 at the time. Octa was 26. They had 4 children at the time. Raymond was 7, Thelma was 4, Alatia was 2, and Roy was 11months old. Papaw was working as a carpenter.
At this same time, (1910 Census), Lewis F. was still living in Caddo Mills and employed as a peddler. He was a widower and 58 at the time. Living with him were his Mother-in-Law, Henrietta McKenzie, and Papaw's sister, Nona, who was retarded. She was 21 at the time.
During the winter of 1910 Papaw moved his family back to Caddo Mills. On April 2nd, 1911, Papaw's dad, LOUIS FILLMORE LEGGITT, died at Caddo Mills in Hunt County, Texas. His death certificate does not show place of burial. However, due to circumstantial evidence, I think I know where he is buried.
12-20-2001 UPDATE: I recently made a trip to Caddo Mills and again walked around several cemeteries in the area with again no results. I had made this trek about 4-5 years ago. However, I felt drawn to one cemetery, Elm Creek Cemetery which is located on private land about 2 miles North East of Caddo Mills. This cemetery has been abandoned, but you can drive to it on a turnrow. There is a sign on the highway, showing the cemetery. .It is a small sign, and if you are not careful, you will miss it. I visited this cemetery once before, about 4 years ago. At that time, it was so overgrown you could not walk through it. This time, someone had cut all the trees and brush, and I was able to walk through it but still did not find anything. Many of the stones have been broken, buried beneath vegetation, etc.
Upon returning home, I made further research at the state geneology library in Austin. I found the Texas Death Records Index and found the listing for Lewis Fillmore Leggitt in 1911 in Hunt County. On the line directly above it was "infant, son of Louis, ____ Leggitt, Hunt Co. Texas 1913. I then went to the state Health and Human Service commission and got legal copies of the death certificates. The death certificate shows that the infant was the stillborn child of Louis Leggitt and the mother's maiden name was White. That would be Mamaw, Louis's wife Effie Octavene White Leggitt. The child died in Greenville and was buried on 3-29-1913 in Elm Creek Cemetery at Caddo Mills, Texas.
I will take some liberty here and suppose that if a man (Louis Leggitt, my Grandfather) had buried his father only 2 years before at Caddo Mills, then his child is stillborn, he would want the child buried with his Father. We know that the child was brought from Greenville to Caddo Mills for burial. I now believe that the child and the child's Grandfather Lewis Fillmore Leggitt are buried together in Elm Creek Cemetery.
Cemetery listings in the State Geneological library show 7 or 8 unmarked graves in Elm Creek Cemetery. I believe we now know possibly who 2 of these are. It may be that the graves are marked, but stones are buried or missing.

General Notes: Source: 1900 Texas Census.

Nonie apparently was born slightly retarded. Her mother, Lelia, had died shortly after her birth in Texas. After her father's death in 1911 she, her brother Oscar and her step mother Sarah moved from Texas to southwest Oklahoma.
Sarah died in 1913 and Oscar cared for Nonie. Shortly after Oscar's marriage to Inez Hussey, Inez had Nonie committed to a state institution in Fort Supply, Oklahoma. According to family lore, there was some question as to Nonie's incapacitation. Family lore has it that Oscar and some of his older children visited Nonie several times at Fort Supply, against the wishes of Inez. Ironically, Inez was commited to the Fort Supply institution for a short time during the last years of her life. (Inez was later moved to a nursing home in Sayre, OK.)

Nonie is buried next to her step-mother Sarah Leggitt in the Berlin Cemetery in Berlin, Oklahoma.

General Notes: Source: Leggitt family records.

Clara was born while her parents were living on the Pittsburg Ranch north of Berlin. When she was three the family moved to a small two room house near Edenview where she later started school. When Clara was in the third grade her parents purchased some land from the Pittsburg Land Company seven miles northwest of Berlin. They built a big comfortable six room house there where Clara grew up.

About a year after her son Roy was born in 1933, Clara and he went to live with the Samual and Bonnie Purdy family in Carter, OK. Clara assisted Bonnie in the homemaking chores and did the family book keeping. She finished high school while at Carter in 1936. By the summer of 1937 the dust bowl made it impossible to continue making a living in Oklahoma and the family moved to California in a manner similar to John Steinbeck's novel, Grapes of Wrath.

They picked cotton and fruit the first years, but by 1940 the family had become quite successful. In 1941 Clara married Chester Leonard Smith who had a girl Roy's age and two nearly grown boys. She and Leonard had another family of a boy and two girls by 1946.

Leonard was primarily a carpenter and mechanic during the war (WWII) and post war years. However, he was seriously injured in an accident in the early 1950s and could no longer work doing physical labor. He and Clara later had a series of grocery stores and Clara entered the real estate business in the 1960s. She was quite successful and remained very active in that business until she fully retired in 1988.

Obituary of Roy A. Young (Note: He had been injured in an automobile accident in 1992 and never fully recovered. He died on Feb. 20th, 1993 of complications of that accident.)

Funeral services for Roy Young will be conducted Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Martin Funeral Chapel with Rev. A.L. Martin officiating. Burial will follow in the Berlin Cemetery under the direction of Martin Funeral Home.

Roy A. Young was born March 16, 1911 in Piedmont and died Saturday at the age of 81. He attended Edmond and Oklahoma City schools and at the age of 19 moved to his grandfather's farm near Berlin, where he also attended school for a while.

Roy was married to Julia French on Feb. 7, 1946, and they established their home in Erick. They operated the Erick Hospital from 1946-1970 when it was converted into a retirement center. In 1965, they established a nursing home in Erick.

In 1968, they operated the Sayre Retirement Center and continued that management until 1980. In 1977, the operation in Erick was sold. Roy operated several other enterprises but farm and ranching was his greatest love.

Survivors include his wife; Julia Young of the Sayre home; his children: Dorcas Lucile Maloney of Central Point, Oregon, Ervin Frank Young of Kingfisher, Bessie Meryle Johnston and Wanda Sue Jones both of Central Point; one sister: Emma Warkentin of Fort Worth; 12 grandchildren and 26 great grand grandchildren.

Roy was preceded in death by his parents, two sons, one brother and two sisters.

In actuality, Roy was quite a loverman. According to his daughters, he had a loving girl friend in the early 1930's who was killed in an autombile accident. He apparently lived at that time with his Courtney grand parents in Roger Mills County. He then related with Clara Leggitt whom he imprgnated with a son Roy Clarke Leggitt in about 1932 who was born April 6th, 1933. (See his private notes.) Also in 1932 he married Opal Reynolds with whom he later had five children, the oldest being Dorcus Lucile Young who was born July 1st, 1933. He and Opal divorced and in 1947 he married Julia French who is mentioned in the above obituary.


Their child was:

General Notes: Source: Smith family records. See Clara C. Smith.

Clara dictated the following biography of Leonard Smith to me (RCL) on October 18, 1999:

Leonard was born in Culman, Alabama and was raised on a farm near Munday, Texas. As a young man he worked for some time near Lindale, Texas close to where his brother Aaron lived. He married Birdie Wilson when she was 14 and Paul was born there. Their second son Barney was born in Oklahoma. Part of the time he was a blacksmith and a mechanic. He said that he was a mechanic for Bonnie and Clyde at one time. Birdie died and Leonard and the boys returned to Lindale, Texas. The Wilsons took care of the boys while Leonard worked. He married a very large woman in Oklahoma and they soon divorced. He then married Vera Nips in Lindale when she was 14. Clara Mae was born there in 1933. He worked as a mechanic there and worked late many nights. Vera thought he was womanizing and divorced him.

He then went out to west Texas where his father farmed. He and his friend Leonard Brown (Dora's son) picked cotton there. When his father died in 1939 Leonard and his son, Paul traveled in a Model A Ford to Phoenix, Arizona. Clara Mae remained with her mother and Barney stayed with the Wilsons.

About 1940 Leonard and Paul moved to Hanford, California where Arzo Smith lived. He worked for an oil company and hurt his back when an oil drum fell on him. He then moved to Tulare, California where he rented a cabin in the roadside Young's Courts. The court was at the rear of the store named Twin Palms owned by the Samuel Purdy family which included Clara Leggitt and her young son Jay.

By this time Leonard also had Barney with him. Leonard was a professional gambler in Tulare. Clara played six-card pitch nightly at the Twin Palms Store. Leonard worked his way into the nightly game so he could meet Clara. He had seen Clara walking around the court and had told Paul "I'm going to marry that little bitch!"

One night Leonard had taken Clara, Jay, and Paul to the theater in Tulare. In the midst of the show Barney came running in saying the Twin Palms Store was on fire. By the time they got back, the store and all its contents were gone.

After the fire the Purdy family relocated to Kingsburg where they established another gas station, a grocery store, and a furniture store. Leonard had moved to Merced to work at Castle Army Air Base. He frequently stopped by the store to see Clara.

By correspondence they secretly arranged for Clara to catch a bus to Merced on December 3, 1941, after which they drove to Reno, Nevada where they married on December 4th.

In the spring of 1942 Clara and Leonard had moved to Las Vegas. Once settled there they arranged for Clara Mae to join them from Texas and Jay to join them from Kingsburg. By then Barney was working in Texas in a carnival. Paul was working at Whimpies Hamburger Joint in Las Vegas. Leonard's and Clara's son Chester Leonard Smith, Jr. was born there in 1942.

During the war Leonard worked as a carpenter. Mostly, Leonard worked at Army and Navy bases in southern California. In 1943 and 1944 he worked for a contractor rebuilding railroad section hand quarters along the railroad between Barstow and Needles, California. This entailed living at some very remote and desolate places in the desert, including Hector that was later the epicenter of the October 1999 7.0 earthquake. Clara Mae and Jay attended quite a few different schools that year.

The family was living in Rialto, California when Margaret Emma Smith was born in 1944.

By 1947 Leonard and his family had purchased an automobile repair garage just south of Modesto, California. Within a short time he sold the garage and property for a very good profit and relocated the family south about five miles to Ceres where he bought a house from the profits of the sale. Lenore Ailene was born there. Leonard had an auto repair and blacksmith garage on the Ceres property. In 1948 a fire destroyed the garage.

For a while Leonard worked as a mechanic for his nephew (Fannie's son-in-law Oscar Banks) who had a vast cotton field south of Bakersfield.

He moved the family to Ridgecrest, California for a few months and returned to Ceres in the summer of 1949. He still owned the house there. His niece Winnie Long Summerfield had been renting it.

The Korean Conflict began in 1950 and in April 1951 Leonard and Clara moved with the younger children to Fairfield, California where he worked as a carpenter at Travis Air Force Base. Clara Mae had married and Jay remained in Modesto to finish high school (renting a room from his cousin Winnie Summerfield.)

By 1952 Leonard and the remaining family moved to San Bernardino and later to Fontana where they remained for several years. He worked as a finish carpenter during the early part of this time. Later, while working at Kaiser Steel in Fontana he had an industrial accident which broke his neck and precluded him from any further strenuous physical labor. He and Clara bought and ran a grocery store in Fontana. During this time Clara's son Jay joined the US Air Force, their son Chet joined the US Navy and daughters Marge and Nora married and left home.

Clara began working part time as a real estate agent while living in Fontana. In the early 1970s she and Leonard moved to Crestline, just north of San Bernardino, California where Clara opened a real estate office and Leonard tinkered with a blacksmith and radiator shop next door.

By the late 1970s Leonard and Clara relocated to Lake Elsinore, California where Clara continued in real estate and Leonard tinkered with second-hand items for sale on their large lot.

In about 1980 Clara retired from real estate and she and Leonard moved to a beautiful hilltop lot in Sage, about ten miles south of Hemet, California to enjoy their retirement.

Just after turning 79 years of age, Leonard was killed in a freak automobile accident. While changing a tire on his daughter's car on the road to Hemet, his own car, which was parked behind her car, was hit from the rear by a drunk illegal alien. It crushed Leonard between the two cars. He clung to life in the Hemet Hospital for nearly a week but died on March 7, 1981.

His daughter Margaret wrote over Christmas of 1999 "Daddy was a fabulous grandfather to all the grandkids. Vince still messes him and I wish Hilary could have known him. She will never get to meet anyone like him. He was very smart in a very common sense way and he taught the grandkids (kids too) so many things they will always need to know through life."

ARTHUR ALFRED EISENACHER 11 Jun 1918 15 Mar 2007 (P) 92570 (Perris, Riverside, CA ) (none specified) 367-01-8889 Michigan



Noted events in his life were:

• 1930 Federal Census: Arther Eisenacher appeared in the 1930 federal census in Portsmouth Township, Bay County, Michigan with his parents, Charles A. amd Anna Eisenacher, both 45 years of age, born in Germany, and married 25 years. Charles' occupation was as a machinist. His older brother Frederick A., aged 20 and born in Germany was listed as an instector in an automobile factory. Likewise, his sister Alice, aged 18, born in Michigan, was also listed as an instepctor in an automobile factory. From the ages of these two children. it is apparent the family immigrated from Germany to Michigan about 1911 or so. His older sister Alice, aged 18 worked as a laundress in a hotel. His sister Helma 17, had apparently finished school but was unemployed. His other siblings, Arno 15, Elsa 15, and Elizabeth 8 all were still in school, as was Arther.

214. Peggy Rose Leggitt 11 (Oscar Jack Leggitt8, Leila E. Dinkins7, Charles M.6, Isham5, William4, William Sr.3, Thomas2, Immigrant1) was born on 7 May 1919 in Edenview, Roger Mills, Oklahoma,11 died on 24 Sep 1968 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Oklahoma11 at age 49, and was buried in Rose Hill Cem, Oklahoma City, , Oklahoma.11

General Notes: Peggy attended Cameron College, Lawton, Oklahoma, in the late 1930's. There she was introduced to her future husband, William Roy Hare (Bill), by his sister Joy, a college classmate. They transferred to Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College (now Oklahoma State University). When Bill joined the Navy during World War II, Peggy worked in a war plant in Wichita and joined Bill in Miami, Florida, where he was stationed, following their April 4, 1942 marriage in Wichita.

Following the war, they completed college at Oklahoma A & M, graduating together in 1946. They lived in Elk City and Stillwater while Bill worked in Vocational Agriculture Training for the State of Oklahoma. While living in Stillwater, Patsy and Donald Meehan, children of Peggy's sister Hazel Harrington Meehan, came to live with them following the deaths of the parents. Nikki Sue was born in 1948, and Mary Jane in 1952.

The family moved to Oklahoma City in 1952, where Bill was employed first as Executive Secretary of the Oklahoma City Livestock Exchange, and then as a Farm Reporter for an Oklahoma City television station. Peggy worked as a substitute teacher, and later a teacher of Home Economics with Oklahoma City City Public Schools. She received her Masters Degree in Education from Central State University, Edmond, OK in 1966. She died in 1968, following a valiant battle against cancer. She is buried at Rose Hill Cemetery in Oklahoma City, beside Bill, who died in 1983.

Her daughter Nikki, who prepared this biography, recalls the following childhood story about Peggy. "One unseasonably warm, early spring day, Mother tied her only pair of shoes together and hung them from the saddle horn of the horse she shared with Clara and Jack for the ride home from school. She didn't realize her shoes slipped to the ground somewhere along the route. During the night heavy snow fell and the shoes were covered. Mother couldn't go back to school until the snow melted sufficiently for Jack to locate the soggy shoes."

Her daughter Janie recently emailed me: Here is a story about my mother that has always meant a lot to me. It shows a little bit about what a generous and compassionate person she was. There are so many stories that I intend to write down. At least this is a start.

"Mother especially loved teaching the underprivileged girls in her Home Economics classes. She believed that helping them gain skills in cooking, sewing, and family life was an important investment in their futures. She was always eager to spend extra time before or after school with the girls who needed it the most. Girls with little emotional or economic support at home could find a helping hand, a quiet listener, a wise adviser in Mrs. Hare. In addition to cooking and sewing, she would help her girls with their grooming, hair, and clothes. She was especially proud of one girl, coincidentally named Janie like her daughter, who came from extremely unfortunate circumstances. Many mornings before school, Mother would go with Janie into the girl's locker room which was the only decent bathing facilities available to the girl. After Janie's shower Mother would help her fix her hair and clean her fingernails. Mother often would bring the girl nice clothes her own daughters no longer wore. By the end of the school year, Janie was a presentable young lady able to take good care of herself, despite her home life."

Mae Leggitt Finney provided me the following two obituaries:

Oklahoma City Times, Tuesday, Sept. 24, 1968.

"While we were living over in the two story house, Mama became pregnant with Jack. By this time Uncle Elmer had died. He had been gassed in the war and he had died and I remember going to the funeral with Mama and Daddy and they had the 21 gun salute. It wasn't a tape then. It was real soldiers out there with guns shooting at that funeral for him.

"When Uncle Elmer died, because Mama had all of these children, she had four and she was expecting another one, Grandma (Lucy Graham Capps) gave the insurance money from Uncle Elmer to Mama to build a house on her 160 acre farm. Daddy hired a Mr. Montgomery who lived up in Needmore, to build this house. There was no electricity, no water, no nothing but he built us a beautiful three bedroom house with a living room, a dining room and a kitchen. I saw that house in 2002 and still the ridge line is straight and the foundation is straight. It was a well built house and it was the only new house in the whole community. While we were living in this two story house, Mama kept telling Daddy she wanted to be in that new house before Jack is born. He said, "As soon as it is finished, I don't want you in there until it is finished." He farmed broom corn and stored it in the house before it got finished. But anyway, one day, Daddy was gone somewhere and Mama had Hazel and Mildred hooked up the team, pulled it up beside the window of that two story house and we threw the mattresses out into the wagon and we took them all over to the new house. When Daddy got home, we had moved. He never forgave us and he never painted the house. The paint stayed in the old dug out until I left there when I was 16. He never used it. He stayed mad at Mama over that all of that time. But Mama was in her new house when Jack was born in September of 1924.
...
"When Jack was maybe a year or so old, Mama always kept tubs at the corner of the house to catch the rain water so that we would have water to wash our hair that was soft. One day Jack was out playing and the horses got out and came up to drink out of this tub of water. Old John stood between Jack and the other horses until they all left so that he wouldn't get hurt. After that, she was Daddy's favorite. One day while he was riding Polly, who was a very feisty horse, she threw him off and he fell into some tall grass and punctured his ear drum. He didn't like Polly after that.
...
"We had a big trough where we fed the horses, and of course those horses are big. I was supposed to be watching Jack and he got under the fence and got over in with those horses. Daddy came and got him out and gave me a spanking because I let him get in there. I didn't take good care of him.
...
"We grew a lot of cotton but we never did pick cotton like they did in some places. We just pulled the bolls and all. Then we would have to get up in the wagon and tromp it down and stamp it down. Daddy would take the wagon into Sayre to the cotton gin. It would take him over night to go down there. Sometimes Jack would go with him. They had rooms like a little hotel over at the wagon yard. They would rent a room and stay all night and come back the next day.
...
"We had lots of accidents, maybe not so many considering where we lived and the conditions. Jack fell one time on a pitch fork and one time he fell on a chicken trough and cut around his eye.
...
"Chester was born on December 1st, 1942. We had a pretty good size houseful. Daddy was there, Jack had come in from Seattle, we had Clara, Jay and Barney and we had the baby. But we made it and I don't remember ever having any difficulties except just the normal ones of just trying to keep enough food and cook on a little gasoline stove. We made it just fine. Daddy went back to Oklahoma and Jack had come from Seattle. He had met Winnie and they got married.
...
"Anyone could work in the factories during the war but Nathan Meehan didn't want his wife, Jack's sister Hazel working in any kind of a dangerous job, but he finally decided to let her go to work, stamping labels on boxes. She was doing these boxes when a crane operator knocked a big stack of boxes down and hit her in the back and that killed her. He took the kids and went back to Oklahoma with her. After Jack and I couldn't get a tire to go we went on a train. The train went through Cheyenne, WY and then down through Denver and Amarillo and finally got to Sayre. By the time we finally got there she had already been buried. There was a snow storm and it was cold. Chester was sick. Jack nearly froze to death. He hadn't worn warm clothing and we had to wait till Leonard and Winnie got money together to send us so we could come home.

"We finally got home and one of my brilliant ideas, instead of going all the way through Los Angeles and back up to Las Vegas was, if we got off at Kingman and called Leonard and he could come up and get us and we would save a whole day. That's what we did. We stood around there and finally Leonard and Winnie came and got me, Jack and Chester.

"Jack had married Winnie and they had a little girl named Betty Sue and he was in the Navy. She came to visit us with her baby and her car and Paul had a car and we still had a 37 Ford so we lined up and took off to the country. We had a little tire trouble but we made it down through Bakersfield and got all the way up to Ceres, CA. which is just south of Modesto. We had tried to stop at the trailer park but they said, we can't let a mess like this in here. You can't come in. We had a dog with pups and all these kids and cars and trailers. We were a bunch poor Okie looking people. We found a ranch that would hire pickers and they had a place for parking and the showers. So we all took a shower. Winnie and Paul picked peaches one day. We were all cleaned up so we decided to go up the road. We went up the road about a mile and saw a little garage on the side of the road and we pulled in. This guys name was Bob Patton and Leonard asked him what he was going to do and he said we would go back to trucking if he could sell this garage. He said he would take $600 so Leonard pealed off $600 and gave it to him. He picked up his tools and left and we pulled our trailers in behind. We had no water or electricity or nothing but we did have a place we could park.

"We had got this house (in Ceres) and it had a living room and a kitchen and another little room and a bathroom. Leonard always made friends and he had made a friend with a fellow named Cecile who made cement shingles. While he was over at Cecil's and his wife's house he met a young man and woman, Dale Williams and his wife Juanita. They had a little boy, Phillip. We got acquainted with them. Juanita was a very beautiful young lady. All the guys would run after her and then my brother Jack came. He and Winnie had gotten a divorce. Winnie had lived with us while Jack was in the navy and she had met a truck driver named Leo Summerville while working in a cafe. She got a divorce and married him. Jack was there with us and he and Juanita fell in love with each other but Dale and Juanita went back to Arkansas and Jack went back in the Navy.

"He was stationed in Olathe, Kansas. While Juanita and Dale were in Arkansas, Gary was born and Dale got killed in a fire. Then Juanita called me and wanted to know where Jack was and I told her. Then they got married. Later on they had Judy."

After high school Jack went to mechanics school.

Jack joined the United States Navy during World War II where he received training in electronics. After the war he established a successful television repair business.

At an Elks meeting in 1995 I overheard Jack tell the story that after he had joined the Navy, he was in San Diego and was awaiting to ship out for the Pacific on the US'S Franklin, an aircraft carrier. Just a day or so before the departure of his ship he developed a tooth ache. He was sent to a dentist at Balboa Hospital and relieved from his assignment on that ship. He later heard that the ship had been sunk by the Japanese and only three sailors had survived.

Jack is the younger brother of Clara Leggitt who married Leonard Smith. Jack married Leonard's niece Winnie Long, daughter of Viola Smith Long. This created a minor problem with Clara's and Leonard's children. Did they call Jack's wife "Cousin Winnie or Aunt Winnie?"

He worked in television repair after the Navy. He and his wife Juanita owned J & J TV in Fontana for many years.

Jack was very active in Elks and VFW activities in Elsinore. He was also very active with the Elsinore Elks RV club. He sponsored his nephew, Roy Leggitt, who joined the Elsinore Elks Lodge in 1995. Roy had just purchased an RV and he also went on several camping trips with Jack and his wife Maxine along with other Elk RV club members.

Jack was in relatively good health until the fall that is mentioned in the following email.

On August 27th 2008 I sent the following email to Jack's relatives:

Subject: Jack Graham Leggitt 5 September 1924 - 27 August 2008

This morning at a little after 10:00 AM, Mickey Leggitt, Gary Leggitt's son and Jack Leggitt's grandson called me to tell me his grandfather had just died at his home in Wildamar, California. Mickey had driven down from Sacramento late last night. My mother, Jack's sister Clara Smith had been with Jack at his home for the last few days.

On Memorial Day Jack had been participating in a Veterans of Foreign Wars memorial service at a local cemetery, had tripped on a tombstone and fell. He cracked some bones in his back and was limited in his mobility afterwards. Later during a CAT scan it was determined he had adrenal cancer.

Jack's sisters Kate from Oklahoma and Mae from Denver had just spent a few days with him a couple weeks ago. We also had a Smith/Leggitt picnic on August 10 where many of Jack's friends and relatives visited with him a little before he tired and grandson Mickey drove him home.

Mickey said there would be a service later but he was not sure of the date and time. I will pass that information on when I receive it.

Uncle Jack was a great man and we will miss him terribly,

Roy and Darlene Leggitt

Mae later said that Clara was holding her brother's hand when he passed. Clara said that Jack had passed at 9:30 that morning.

The preliminary results of his death is that it was caused by critical obstructive pulmonary desease (COPD)and adrenal cancer.

Published in the San Bernardino Sun on 9/4/2008

This was very interesting to me. In the spring of 1951 my family moved from Ceres, CA to Fairfield, CA so my step-father Chester Leonard Smith could work there as a carpenter. I was in my senior year of high school and elected not to accompany them. Winnie was the niece of my step-father making her my step-cousin. Winnie had also previously been married to my Uncle Jack Leggitt making her my aunt-in-law. Anyway, Winnie invited me to live with her and Leo and their family in Modesto, CA. I lived there for nearly a year; first finishing high school and later working at the Kaiser Magnesium Plant in Manteca, CA . In about the spring of 1952 I moved from Modesto up to Fairfield, also to work as a carpenter.

I was just over ten years older than Betty Sue and much older than Winnie and Leo's three children. Thus, I really didn't interact with that younger generation of children. Betty's email caught me up on the past sixty years! Thank you!

The following is from Preston Leggitt's Leggitt Family History:

Louis was farming at the time and worked some as a carpenter. In March of 1902, their first son, RAYMOND LEGGITT, was born.

Raymond married Opal Dunlap. They moved to the "High Plains" sometime in the 1920's. He purchased land South of Lubbock at Woodrow (Cooper) and began farming. He was very successful and later purchased additional farmland 7 miles Northwest of Shallowater, 2 miles Southeast of Whitharral, and at Spade, Texas. He loved to hunt and went on several big-game hunts in New Mexico and Colorado.

Raymond talked his mother and father into moving to the "High Plains." This was probably sometime in the late 1920's. I can remember the stories Dad told me of coming up onto the "Caprock" in the old truck with the furniture and belongings of Mamaw and Papaw. Dad said that they were moving in an old Model T truck.
When they got to the big hill up onto the Caprock at Silverton, the truck did not have enough power to pull itself up the hill.
Since trucks use a much lower gear for the reverse gear, they turned the truck around and backed up the 2 mile hill to get on top of the Caprock.

After a year or two, Mamaw reportedly hated the "High Plains" and the annual dust storms in the Spring. She talked Papaw into moving back to Rochester.

Kate McDaniel recalls that on June 8th 1946 (the day before Kate's marriage day) Raymond and Opal brought Louis and Octa to Cheyenne, Oklahoma to visit Oscar and Inez Leggitt. Kate remembers Raymond as an extremly genial man.

General Notes: Source: 1910 Texas census, Knox county, Vol 89, ED 154, Sheet 66.

The following is from Preston Leggitt's Leggitt Family History:

THELMA RENEE LEGGITT was born July 12th, 1905. Aunt Thelma indicated to me that she was born in a house on Main Street in Caddo Mills, Texas.

Aunt Thelma married John Solon Lea on January 1st, 1922. They moved to Matador, where he ran the "ice house." This was where water was frozen into ice and sold in blocks to the townspeople to refrigerate their food. Solon and Thelma later sold the ice house and bought a farm tractor dealership. Several bad crop years in the area put an end to this business. They moved to Lubbock where Solon became a city policeman. They lived just South of Texas Tech University. Solon later became a city judge in Lubbock. In the early 1950's they semi-retired and moved to a farm near Roundup, Northwest of Shallowater.

Uncle Solon and Aunt Thelma Lea had 3 children:

1. Evelyn Lea married Glenn "Chick" Fletcher. They spent 23 years in the U.S. Air Force, retiring as Lt. Colonel. They reside beside Aunt Thelma in New Braunfels, Texas, 1994. The children of Glenn and Evelyn are:

a. daughter Glenn Lea Fletcher, lives Buenos Aires Argentina, Ph.D Spanish Languages.

b. daughter Cynthia, married to a psychologist, resides Temple, Texas.

c. daughter Sherry Klaus, married to Sandy Klaus, he a coach at Kyle, Texas.

d. son Larry Fletcher, owns beauty shops in California.

e. son Billy Fletcher, Purchasing Manager, large department store in Houston.

2. John Lewis Lea

Living in New Braunfels, TX, 1994.

Roy and Darlene Leggitt visited Thelma in May, 1996. She recalls visiting her uncle Oscar Leggitt and his family in about 1930. On at least two occasions during our conversation she referred to her grandfather as Jack Leggitt but then corrected it to Lewis Leggitt. Preston Leggitt and Roy Leggitt assume that Lewis could possibly have been nicknamed Jack and that his son Oscar Jack Leggitt had been named after that nickname.

When Roy and Darlene visited Preston and Evelyn over Labor Day in 1999, Preston said that Thelma was then living in a nursing home.

The following is from Preston Leggitt's Leggitt Family History.

I remember as a child, our family going to Roy and Bert Leggitt's house in Gladewater, Texas to visit. We then all piled in a car and drove Northwest up to the Lake Lavon area. By this time (Probably in the late 1950's) Lake Lavon had long ago been filled up to the dam by the Corps of Engineers. I remember Dad and Uncle Roy were amazed to find the house that they had grown up in. The house had been moved out of the lake bottom area before the lake was filled. A number of the houses in the area had been moved to this location near one of the state parks and sold to individuals to rebuild in this new location. In 1993, I drove to this location and found 1 house located in Lakeland Park subdivision which would have been old enough to fit this description. I could not confirm that this was the house. This park was located on the East side of Lavon Lake (Northeast of Dallas) and situated about halfway between Lavon and Farmersville. By the way, there are a number of Leggetts in the IOOF cemetery in Farmersville. I do not know their relationship if any.

Preston says Willie Roy lived in Gladewater, TX.

Dear Mr. Leggitt,

My Grand Father is Willie Roy Leggitt. My Mother is his daughter Billie Jeanne Leggitt Sanders, born at Sweetwater, Nolan County, Texas. We were interested in looking up some Sanders Family history because of the birth of a grand daughter, and because we think she is the second female born in about 120 years (as a Sanders). I remembered that Preston Leggitt, my grand father's nephew, had done some work on the Leggitts. So, I took a side track and found a 151 page document on the internet that has apparently been put together by you.

I did find some discrepancies according to my personal knowledge. My Mother told me that Willie Roy thought his name was actually William, and that his mother called him Willie as a nick name. She said he was a little embarrassed about the name Willie. In his personal and professional life he referred to himself as William R. Leggitt, being called Roy. His son was named William Roy Leggitt Jr., and was called Roy Jr.. Billie Jeanne and Roy Jr. were the children of Willie Roy and Imogene Gray. Willie Roy and Imogene were divorced when my mother was 16, about 1945. He then married Bert Shockley, whose husband was killed in a car wreck on the way to Dallas for a football game. She worked in Willie Roy's accounting office. Bert had a son, listed as Heplar Leggitt in Preston's note. His name is Heplar Joseph Fisher Shockley. He was not adopted by Willie Roy and I don't think that was the plan, he was about 6 at the time of the marriage. As far as I know Uncle Hep is still living in Ohio. I have been unsuccessful in contacting him since Bert's funeral. Billie Jeanne and Roy Jr. are both dead.

Willie Roy was successful with his accounting business and had a very nice home in Gladewater, Texas. He was a City Judge for a period of time in the late sixties, and was active in his church and civic organizations, such as Rotary. During "his time" he was among the "in crowd" in Gladewater, and would have very nice parties with martini's and caviar in the sixties. My sister and I would be in the background at some of these. When my sister and I would stay with him, we would run around downtown and go in and out of the shops. We would always tell the people in the stores who our grand father was, and we would be treated very well, free ice cream and so forth, it was great fun at the time, and now good memories. There are some photographs of him and Lyndon Johnson together. He served in the South Pacific during WWII on Palmyra Atoll, which was used as a disposal dump for captured Japanese ammunition. He was not in the combat Navy, however.

I am Clifton Grady Sanders, my father is dead, Osbourne Grady Sanders Jr..

I have one sister, Cassandra Jeanne Sanders Rollinger. She has a son, Eric Peter Rollinger and daughter, Michelle Anne Rollinger. Her husband Peter is from Poland.

I have two sons, Clifton Gray Sanders and Kelly Marc Sanders, my wife's name is Judy Kay Kennedy Sanders.

Clifton Gray has two sons, Timothy Gray and Kevin Michael, his wife's name is Clara Casas Hernandez Sanders.

Kelly Marc has one son, Stephen Patrick and one daughter, born today, Caroline Elizabeth, his wife's name is Stephenie Michelle Groce Sanders.

I thought this information might be valuable to you concerning the Leggitt Family. I would be happy to provide dates and more detailed information if you are interested. The information concerning the descendents of Lewis Leggitt was fascinating and I really enjoyed seeing the photos of my grandfather and his brothers and sisters.

Thank you for all you have done on this.

Sincerely,

Christening Notes: Roy was baptized by the Lutheran Chaplin while stationed at Shemya Air Force Station near the western end of the Aleutian Chain.

General Notes: Early Life:

Roy was born during the Great Depression just at the beginning of the Oklahoma dust bowl His parents were not married.

(In 1994, Mae Leggitt Finney related a story whereas there had been consideration by Inez Hussey Leggitt, Roy's grandmother, of placing him up for adoption shortly after his birth. His great grandmother Elizabeth Capps Hussey put an end to that by stating there would be no adoption of any of her great grandchildren.) His grandmother, who didn't like the name Roy, called him Jay.

In January 1934 his mother and he moved in with the Samuel Purdy family in Carter, Oklahoma. Clara worked as their housekeeper and finished high school there in 1936. By 1937 the Purdy family could no longer support themselves in Oklahoma because of the severity of the dust bowl. In September 1937 they migrated to southern California.

Roy went to first through third grade as Samuel James (Jay) Purdy. After his mother's marriage in 1941 to Leonard Smith, without adoption, his name was changed to Jay Clark Smith. He went to 17 grammar schools and four high schools, graduating from Modesto High School, CA, in 1951. Roy worked as a janitor, shoe salesman, operating engineer, and carpenter until joining the United States Air Force in November, 1952. During that period he and his family lived in Nevada, central, and southern California.

Military Life:

Roy joined the United States Air Force 26 November 1952. He served as an enlisted ground radio operator and attained the rank of staff sergeant. Just prior to his marriage in 1955 Roy changed his name from Jay Clark Smith back to his legal birth name, Roy Clarke Leggitt.

Upon completion of officer candidate school he was commissioned as a second lieutenant in 1959. He served as a communications officer and later as a communications-electronics staff officer.

Roy attended night college courses until he was able to complete his two final semesters at the Alaska Methodist University. He was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Natural Sciences (Magna Cum Laude) in 1965. In 1969 Roy completed his Masters of Science in Information Sciences degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

During his tour with the USAF, Roy was stationed in California, Mississippi, Japan, Iwo Jima, Iowa, New Mexico, Azores, Texas, Mississippi, Shemya Island, Alaska, Mississippi, Iowa, Georgia, Belgium, and Oklahoma. Roy retired from USAF as a major on 31 August 1974.

Post Military Life:

Two days after retiring from the USAF Roy began working with NCR Corporation in San Diego as a software quality analyst and later as a programmer analyst. He worked primarily in telecommunications programming.

In 1976 he became bored with his job and obtained his real estate sales license. He worked mostly in the Poway, California area. While working there he met his future wife-to-be, Darlene.

In 1978 he went back to NCR as a senior software quality analyst and later as a consulting analyst.

After their children were grown, Roy and his wife of nearly 28 years grew apart and divorced in 1983.

In 1984 Roy changed over from the commercial side to the defense industry side of software quality engineering with the Cubic Defense Corporation in San Diego. He worked as a software quality engineer and later as a software quality engineering technical specialist. Again, his specialty was in telecommunications programming.

In 1987 Roy married his present wife Darlene.

His aim for several years was to retire when he reached 59 1/2 years of age. On schedule, Roy retired in October 1992.

Retirement Years:

Roy now pursues genealogy as his principle pastime. After his wife Darlene retired a day after her fifty-fith birthday in 1996 they spent a considerable amount of time each year touring America in their recreational vehicle from their home base in San Diego. In January 1997, after they decided they enjoyed RVing so much, they sold their house in San Diego, bought a new diesel powered 37' Holiday Rambler Endeavor LE, and became full time RVers. Darlene drives and Roy navigates. Using his laptop computer and a two-way DirecWay satellite Internet connection, Roy still pursues his online genealogical quest.

They spend their winters on the Colorado River near Parker, Arizona. Starting in early spring and continuing through late fall they travel to a selected area of the United States. They try to visit family and friends in central Nevada and southern California twice a year. By the end of 1997 they had traveled to each of the contiguous 48 states and in early 1998 ventured down into Mexico.

They still have the traveling bug. In June 2002 they upgraded their home-on-wheels to a new, custom built 2002 41' Monaco Windsor diesel pusher with three slide out compartments. Darlene still does all the driving.

In January 2008, after eleven years on the road, Roy and Darlene purchased a nice RV lot in a co-op RV park about four miles south of Florence, Arizona. They plan on spending from mid-October to mid-April there traveling to cooler places during the summer. To see our new RV homebase, look at http://tinyurl.com/4ytvrs

Noted events in his life were:

• AKA: Alternate names:. 11 Roy's birth certificate shows his name as Roy Clarke Leggitt. His maternal grandmother did not like the name Roy so he was called Jay.

When he was about nine months old he and his mother were taken in by the Samuel and Bonnie Purdy family. When he started school, he was registered as Samuel James "Jay" Purdy. He used this name in the first through third grades.

When his mother married Leonard Smith, without adoption, his name was changed to Jay Clark Smith. He completed school and joined the United States Air Force using this name. During his early Air Force career his friends called him Smitty.

Just prior to his marriage in 1955 he formally changed his name back to Roy Clarke Leggitt. However, most of his maternal family members still call him Jay.


• Full-time RVing: Roy and Darlene are now on their fourth recreation vehicle. This is their current home on wheels. You can see what it looks like on the Internet. Go to

• DNA: In 2007 I had my Y-chromosome analyzed. Here is some of that analysis:

Your Predicted Haplogroup: R1b (prediction confidence 100.0%) Haplogroup R1b, defined by the SNP marker M343, is part of the ancestral R1-M173 of which ancestors first arrived first arrived in Europe from West Asia during the Upper Paleolithic period (35,000-40,000 years ago) at the beginning of the Aurignacian culture. This culture is one of the first within Europe to leave cave-art and their stone tools were more refined than previous periods. The Périgordian culture is also considered by some to have existed at this time. As the last ice-age began, it became necessary to move down to below the tree-line to hunt game. At its peak, the ice shelf within Europe extended down as far as southern Ireland, the middle of England and across northern Germany.

Scandinavia was entirely covered. The sea-ice pack extended as far as northern Spain and tundra covered much of continental Europe. The tree-line at the height of the ice-age was as far south as Southern France, Northern Italy, north of the Balkans and across the Black Sea.

People with Haplogroup R1 Y-chromosomes retreated to below these regions where they established themselves. During this period, the mutation which defines R1b (M343) likely developed within the Iberian Peninsula. As the ice-age ended and the fauna and flora were able to move northward again, people in R1b also migrated north. Haplogroup R1 appears in about 50% of the total European whereas R1b remains by far the most common haplogroup in Western Europe (Spain, Portugal, France, UK and Ireland). R1b3, one of the most successful clades, has it's origins about 11,800 years ago. Within the British Isles, a genetic pattern called the Atlantic Modal Haplotype (AMH) features greatly among the Irish and Welsh. Some researchers consider this haplotype to be representative of the early Celtic migrations. Haplogroup R1b is prevalent within South America given the influx of Iberian Y-chromosomes to the continent over the last 500 years.

The picture to the right shows the probability of my distant ancestral origin.


• Desert Garden RV Oasis: In January 2008, after eleven years on the road, Roy and Darlene purchased a nice RV lot in a co-op RV park about four miles south of Florence, Arizona. They plan on spending from mid-October to mid-April there traveling to cooler places during the summer. Roughly. spend a month in southern California, a month in Carson City, fthree months roaming around the Pacific northwest, another month in southern California and then back to Florence.

She spent the next eighteen years traveling around the world with Roy as he pursued his Air Force career. As was the custom for Air Force wives of that generation, Elaine did not pursue a profession of her own. She was a full time mother and performed various volunteer and club work while Roy was in the Air Force.

For several years after Roy retired Elaine worked at a local bath accessories store and later at the Miramar Naval Exchange in San Diego.

Elaine and Roy separated in September 1981 with a final dissolution of the marriage in February, 1983.

She was killed instantly when a drunk teenage driver ran a stop sign and drove in front of her at the intersection of Las Palmas Avenue and Bear Valley Parkway in Escondido, California.

General Notes: Certificate of Live Birth, State of California, District No. 1001, Registrar's No. 220. Recorded 2-3-1941.

Most of Darlene's early childhood was spent in the Sacramento, California area. Her fondest and happiest memories are of her family's home on Fulton Avenue. Her dad, with the help of her mom, built their home out of adobe bricks. The front of the house had two large blue windows. There were lot's of trees, a creek full of Mallard ducks and frogs, farm animals, and of course Cinder, their coal black springer Spaniel. Cinder entertained guests by putting out a cigaret by stomping them with his front paws, finally finishing the deed by lifting his leg.

At age thirteen, her mom and dad separated. They moved to Fresno and finally to the San Diego area. For the next four years Darlene attended National City Junior High, Southwest Junior High, Chula Vista High School, Helix High School and finally, her junior and senior year at Mar Vista High School, located in Imperial Beach. Darlene joined the band and thoroughly enjoyed the band functions and the friendships she developed with the other band members, especially her best friend, Rose Davis. Unfortunately this relationship was frowned upon by many class mates. Rose was the only black person in the school.

Darlene and Bruce met in his senior year and after Bruce joined the Army, they were married and lived in El Paso, Texas. She worked as a fountain girl at Swanky Franky's and as a car hop at the Clock Drive In.. When Bruce was sent to Okinawa, she and their three-month-old son Jess, lived with his mom and brothers, in Imperial Beach. There she took over the responsibilities of he household.

When Bruce returned home, they moved to El Cajon where he attended San Diego State and she got a job at J. J. Newberry's. In 1965, they moved to the Los Angeles area where he attended and graduated from UCLA. She got a job at Kroehler Mfg. Co., working her way up from a proofreader for the typist to secretary to the plant manager.

After Bruce's company was bought out in 1973, the family, which now included their second son Jason, returned to the San Diego area where Darlene got a job at Allstate Insurance Co. as the secretary to the personnel manager.

In 1977 after they separated, Darlene and the boys moved to Poway. After trying to make a living selling real estate, she realized she needed a steady paycheck and in March of 1997, she applied for a position at International Graphics, later named Moore Data Management. She was hired as a customer service representative, dealing with problems reported by Boards of Realtors. During the next several years, she enjoyed traveling for the company, attending singles dances, dating and most of all, racing her 914-6 Porsche with the Porsche Club of America.

In April 1987, Darlene married Roy Leggitt. They had met in 1977 when they both sold real estate. They were married in their back yard with family and friends looking on. On her 55th birthday, January 1996, she retired from Moore Data Management Corporation where she had worked for the past 17 years.

In January of 1997, after buying a new Diesel Holiday Rambler RV, and selling their home in Rancho Bernardo, they set out on their new adventure, living on wheels and enjoying the United States. In 1999, they continue to enjoy the freedom their life style affords and hope to be able to continue this life style for many years to come.

BIO
I'm from a small town in Missouri. I'm married. I am a newspaper reporter.
I tend a vegetable garden, drive a tiny beat-up pickup and wish the Royals would sign a legitimate power hitter.
Work stuff:
Staff writer, The News & Observer, Raleigh, N.C., July 2002 to present. As a general-assignment reporter, I've written about everything from state politics to the Carolina Hurricanes to Clay Aiken to men who buy beer for their gnomes. More than any other job, this one built my confidence as a writer.
Features writer, The Tuscaloosa News, Tuscaloosa, Ala., Sept. 2000 to July 2002. More general-assignment work. More weirdos. More church, more biscuits, more football. (Roll Tide). In Tuscaloosa, I began to find my writing voice.

Online producer, thebostonchannel.com, Needham, Mass., March 2000 to Sept. 2000. Working on the Web site of WCVB-TV, Boston's ABC affiliate, I edited video, chopped wire copy and soothed anchors' egos.
Features writer, The Enterprise, Brockton, Mass., July 1999 to March 2000. In my first full-time features job, I began to learn about pacing, style and column-writing.
Reporter, The Beaver County Times, Beaver, Pa., July 1997 to July 1999. I covered cops, several school boards and the occasional sewer-district meeting.
Reporter, The Daily Journal, Park Hills, Mo., February 1997 to July 1997. I made $7.70 an hour.
Education
Bachelor's of Journalism, University of Missouri, August 1996.

General Notes: In May 2008 I (RCL) found Michael Lea listed as the son of Thelma Renee Leggitt on geni.com. I assumed him to be my second cousin and emailed him. It turned out that he was in fact the grandson of Thelma. He responded:

I am Michael Rodney Lea's son. I don't suppose you had heard that he had passed away. He died April 1, 2001 of malignant melanoma. We really do miss him.

Not long after he passed, I took up an interest in family history. I talked with Preston and got everything he had on the Leggitt line at that time. I look forward to going thorough the information you put together in your file. I'm sure it will be great stuff. I've put together a notebook for each of my kids outlining everything I know about the various branches of our family.
