NOTES ON SOUTHSIDE VIRGINIA BY Walter A. Watson:

Page 31: In the Richmond Enquirer of 15 June 1814, Dr. Phil T. Southall, in a card explained his absence from professional duties and states that he has returned to make Cumberland County (at Raines Tavern) his home. He promises advice and medicine free to those unable to pay for service. He was the father of Dr. Joseph Southall of Amelia County, Va.

Page 55: Dr. Southall wants to know if Flat Creek was not called Wyanoke by the Indians. Dr. Southall and Bob Southall in another place in the book . . . Dr. Southall told about old times in Amelia, Virginia.

Page 60: A few remarks about the War of 1812. In the War of 1812 many men of Amelia were attached to the First Regiment.

Page 62: Paineville or Painesville, Amelia County. Painsville is the site of old Union Church. That was one of the finest Congregations in Virginia in the hey-day. Old Dr. Phil Southall said Paineville was named for a man who lived at Paineville years since.

Alexander Campbell and Dr. Thomas had a great debate. Thomas published his denominational paper at Paineville so Dr. Joseph Southall says.

Page 107: Jones Peter, born 1813, wills wife, Martha, three children. Mary E., Peter B., and Elizabeth B., owned land of Augustus Watson on Eastern side of lower fork of Woody Creek and also Ellett's Notloway [sic] W.B.

2 Jan: Attorney R.G. Southall of Amelia.

30 Dec 1909: John S. Taylor and Thos. E. Woodfin, two old Confederate Soldiers of Chesterfield, to dinner with us. Colonel Southall here to spend the night.

Here a note has been inserted by Reba Church Schmidt as follows:

"I wonder about this, because they spoke of William Albert Southall, born 17 Jan 1808, as "Colonel" around Centerville, Tenn. In fact, when he died that is the way they wrote it up in the newspaper."
