James Samuel was the grandfather of my grandfather. He fought
in the civil war and was captured and sent to a prisoner of war
camp in the north. He was a private in Co. K, 41st Regt., Ga. Inf.
He inlisted March 4, 1862. He was captured on the picket line near
Atlanta, Ga. on August 3, 1864. He was taken to Camp Chase, Ohio.
He departed Camp Chase, Ohio on May 16, 1865. The horrible
conditions at this camp may have been the cause of his early death.
James Samuel is reported by family tradition to be buried in the Old
Campground Cem. near by Samuel G. There is no marker, but
Granddaddy was told this by his Grandmother, Lucinda Helen Self
Mozley Pritchard, widow of James Samuel.

This is taken from THE CAMPBELL SALT SPRINGS GUARDS,
A History of Company K, 41st Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry,
Army of Tennessee, C.S.A, by MITCHELL KELLEY. This was found
on USGENWEB at the Campbell Co., Ga. site:

One such prison was Camp Chase near Columbus, Ohio. A confederate
soldier confined to this prison, M. A. Ryan, described the conditions as
such:

Only by spooning two could lie in one bunk. We slept on naked planks,
straw being allowed. We were not allowed fires in our store after night.
No chairs or benches and when we sat, we sat on the floor. As to our
rations...one-half loaf of bread eight inches long divided between eight men,
one slice to a man twice a day. One tablespoon of navy beans with pickled
beef the size of person's forefinger...

Lucinda Helen SELF [Parents] was born on 03 Feb 1843 in Wilkes Co.,Georgia. She died on 09 Apr 1940. She was buried in Nixon Chapel Cem.,Nixon Chapel,Marshall Co.,Alabama. She married James Samuel MOZLEY on 04 Dec 1859 in Campbell Co.,Georgia.

In the 1875 Tax Digest, transcribed by Wally Smith and placed on
the Campbell Co., Ga. USGen Web site, Mrs. Cinda Mosley, owned
120 acres that were worth $700. She apparently lived next door to
Isaiah Irvin (listed as J.J. Mosley) who had 200 acres worth $1000.
This was the year after James Samuel died.

Lucindy was a twin. Her twin sister died and Lucindy's mother told her
that she would have all of her years as well as half of her sister's.

My mother knew her great-grandmother and has told me many stories.
One is that when the war (between the states) broke out, the sheriff,
who happened to be Will McGouirk, would come around to conscript
men into the Confederate Army and send them off to war. She and James
had not been married long and he didn't want to go, so he went and hid in
the woods. Her next door neighbor told the officials that he had went to
the woods and he was found and sent off to war. Granny was a tiny little
thing and did not weigh 100 lbs, soaking wet. She took a fence paling and
beat her fat next door neighbor. Some versions of the story say that
Granny broke the neighbor's back. When she finished, she dusted her hands
off and said "And now, little lady, I'll trust you mind your own business."

Granny lost her vision in her old age but she always knew each person's
foot step. She would say, "There comes so-and-so." Whoever it was, she
always knew in advance.

She liked to drink "Kettle Tea" before she went to bed. This concoction
was made with hot water and milk and a little sugar. Granddaddy also drank
this before he went to bed. Peewee (Henry, Jr.) used to drink this also.
Rusty said that his father, Horace, said that Granny would ask for a "toddy"
made with whiskey before bed, but I guess that the family had become
teetotlers by that time and no one would make her one.

Granny's hair was originally red but Granddaddy said that it had turned
snow white by the time that she was 21. It swept the floor when she sat
down. Mama used to brush it and braid it and then Granny would wrap it
around her head.

Granny and "Uncle Jim" came to Alabama with Zolpha and Ada when they
moved to Nixon Chapel. They came by buckboard with the older children
and Ada road the train with Granddaddy, who was just a baby. She brought
plants to put out when they got to Nixon Chapel, but they were confisticated
at the state line. She asked to keep the Back Walnuts so that she could feed
the kids. She planted these nuts and her black walnut tree grew from the nuts
that she brought from Georgia. Mama said that the day Granny died, Granny
asked her to pick her a cup of her walnuts. She gave Mama a cup and a
hammer to crack them with. Mama had just finished putting the last nut in the
cup when Granddaddy called her to the house. Mama said that Granddaddy
yelled to her, "Marjorie, Granny's dead." Granny also brought a white Lilac
and planted it. Mama got cuttings from Virgie who had gotten cuttings from
Granny and planted those. Mama also got black walnuts from the tree that
Granny planted and planted those at Altoona and grew a tree from them. I
have cuttings from this Lilac also, but mine has not bloomed, yet.

This is the song that Granny sang the day she died. None of the current
family had ever heard it before. My aunt, Brenda Mozley Burton, found the
words for Mama just yesterday on the internet. Brenda found this and the
music on the internet.

Cantata"), Mer hahn en neue

Oberkeet, by Johann Sebastian

Bach, ; appeared in Vocal Music or

the Songster's Companion, 1782.

How tedious and tasteless the hours

When Jesus I no longer see;

Sweet prospects, sweet birds and sweet flowers,

Have all lost their sweetness to me;

The midsummer sun shines but dim,

The fields strive in vain to look gay.

But when I am happy in Him,

December's as pleasant as May.

His Name yields the richest perfume,

And sweeter than music His voice;

His presence disperses my gloom,

And makes all within me rejoice.

I should, were He always thus nigh,

Have nothing to wish or to fear;

No mortal as happy as I,

My summer would last all the year.

Content with beholding His face,

My all to His pleasure resigned,

No changes of season or place

Would make any change in my mind:

While blessed with a sense of His love,

A palace a toy would appear;

All prisons would palaces prove,

If Jesus would dwell with me there.

Dear Lord, if indeed I am Thine,

If Thou art my sun and my song,

O, why do I languish and pine?

And why are my winters so long?

O drive these dark clouds from the sky,

Thy soul cheering presence restore;

Or take me to Thee up on high,

Where winter and clouds are no more.

Note: William McGouirk, "Will", was the sheriff in the Chestnut Log
Dist. where the Mozleys and Selfs lived. Will was the brother of George
Washington McGouirk who married Jane Helms. After GW died in the
Mexican war, Jane married Andrew Jackson Norton. Jane and Andrew
Jackson were the grandparents of Ada Norton who married Zolpha the
son of James Samuel Mozley, Granny's husband. Jane and AJ raised Ada
after her mother died.

Found in the Alabama Death Index, 1908-1959, on Ancestry.com: Lusinda
Prichard, Marshall Co., 9 Apr. 1940, Vol. 20, Cert. 9988, Role 4.

Death Certificate: Mrs. Lusinda Prichard, widow of J. E. Prichard
(sp-Pritchard). Information given by Lowell Mozley, grandson. This info
is incorrect, but it is what the death certificate states: Date of Birth
Feb. 6, 1871, Ga. Age 69 years 2 months and 3 days. Usual occupation
housewife. Father John D. Self. Mother D.K. (Don't Know).
Birthplace of parents is D. K. also. Her date of burial was Apr. 11, 1940.
The certificate states that she had lived in place of death for 60 years.
Address was R 2, Horton, Al. Dr. W. W. Klein put that the immediate
cause of death
was Not Known. She died at 3:30 P.M.

Granny was actually 97 years, 2 months, and 6 days old when she died.
She had lived at Nixon Chapel for 36 years and some months.

My mother said that it was probably later than 3:30 P.M. when Granny
died. She and Agnes had been to school that day and then stopped to pick
up walnuts at Zack's. They had picked the walnuts out of the shells and was
giving the hammer and horseshoe nails to Jane when Granddaddy yelled that
Granny was dead. Mama grabbed Rosamond and Agnes grabbed Cynthia Ann.
Then Jane, Mama, Agnes, and the girls ran to the old home place which was
about 1/2 mile from Zack and Jane's house by the road, but less than that
across the fields.

Email from Nona Thornton to Mamie Tate
Dear Mamie,
I do not have a copy of the Record Book. What you have sent to me
looks correct as to the people and the generations. I obtained my
information at the Sampson Co., Court house last fall. They had a Will
Abstract book that I copied most of and the actual Wills for Nathaniel,
Benjamin, Susannah. This is what the Will Abstract says for Thomas
Thornton. ( Will abtracts only are a summation. Not word for word.
This Will is located in Raliegh at the Archives. I have not been there.)

* NC State Archives

I notice that this Thomas Thornton is called Senr. I do not believe that
this is the Thomas Thornton born in 1718 married to Martha P. I belive
this is Thomas Thornton born ca 1750, hopefully the year of 1755 is
more correct.
In a book entitled " Forebears and Desendants of an Early Houston
Family", there is documentation that Thomas Thornton of VA was living
in Johnston Co., NC when he bought land in Duplin Co. (This property
in Duplin was later identified as Sampson Co. due to a county line change.)
Thomas' son Herod also bought land in Duplin Co., and this was the land
that he sold to return to Johnston. This book documents the Deeds.
1) 1750 Dec 11, Duplin co., NC Deed book 2, p. 109 - Mark Phillips to
Thomas Thornton indenture 11 Dec 1750.... 40 pounds paid to Mark
Phillips by Thomas Thornton of Johnston Co., plantation or tract "in
county aforesaid" on one of the branches of Cohary, beginning at a live
oak, S 20 E 210 to a gum, S55 E 90, being 200 ac granted to Anthony Cox

Admr... Signed: Thos Thornton
Children are not listed in order of birth. Herod Thornton probably the
second son. Listed this way to make compiling easy.

Appear to be the children of Thomas Thornton and his wife _________.

Thomas Thornton, b) ca. 1734 d) prob. before 8 Dec 1832
Nathaniel Thornton b) 1755 - 1774 d) bef. 8 Dec 1821
Benjamin Thornton b) 1755 - 1774 d) bef 25 Mar 1815
John Thornton b) ca. 1740 d) (Abt 1806 - my addition)
Herod Thornton b) __ d) ca. 1821 to 1822 ( I have in my records
ca. 1750 as abirth date. obviously from this record Herod wold be born
abt. 1734-1739. I am not sure that Thomas was born when his father was
only 16. It is possible but the dates for the oldest children are probably
closer to 1740. Then there is the comment of Herod buying property in
Duplin. The Deed cited for this transaction has no date but it was after
his father Thomas bought his property in Duplin. We need to remember
that with a birth date of 1735-39 he would not be 21 until 1756- 60. The
next Deed for Herod is 1765 when he buys property in Johnston Co.
This book goes on to document Herod from NC to GA with more than
25 Deeds and other records. Thomas and his sons are also cited as far as
the author researched. The sources for the document are given and I feel
that the research is reliable as the abstract and source match the few
records that I have so far.
Another interesting note is that after the death of Thomas Senr. His son
Thomas is then called Thomas Thornton Sr. in his Deeds beginning in 1789.
There are 58 pages in this book about Thomas Thornton and his descendants.
I can copy these for you along with the wills. Would you like all of these?
You may be able to find this book in a large library near you. It is in TX and
Atlanta and probaly in NC area libraries. It is out of print.

Well, off to another erand. Let me know what type in fo you would like or
all of it : )

Sincerely,
Nona Thornton
Here in GA

Nona, did you purchase one of the copies of the Duplin/Sampson NC Rev.

In it says in part:
"Thomas Thornton---son of Thomas Thornton Sr. from Johnston Co., was

Thomas's estate in 1777 Duplin Co.--------married Rebecca Lee-----children
Benjamin----Nathaniel----Thomas III----Joanne---Sally-----will dated

Soooo, my William Thornton born 1824, son of Eldridge born 1795, son of
Nathaniel born ca. 1747(?), son of Thomas whichever.
Do you have the NC census for 1800-10-20 ? I need to go back again and
check the Nathaniels ages groups. I haven't been able to get out because of
the weather to get to the library.

Bonner, unfortunately, I don't have the names of Nancy Holland's
parents. About all I have on her is that she and Cato Lee were married
ca 1780 and that she was born ca 1760 and died 10/19/1838 in Tenille,
GA. You state that Cato moved to Alabama AFTER Nancy DIED
but I have the death date for Cato Lee as 9/26/1832. Do we have the
wrong death date for Nancy? You might contact Valerie Wood at
valerie.wood@ssa.gov and see if she has any more information on
Nancy Holland. I don't think Valerie checks Genforum very often
anymore. Cato and Nancy were in her direct line.

Samuel CLARKE died in 1731 in Wil probated.

Roach, Roberts, Ridgeway and Allied Families

Author: Marielou Roach Fair
Call Number: R929.2 R628
Genealogy of these three families, starting with
Jospeh Allen of Virginia and Georgia.
Bibliographic Information: Fair, M. R. Roach, Roberts,
Ridgeway and Allied Families. N.p., n.d.

The name of JOHN CATOR was found in Brunswick County,
Virginia in 1731. He witnessed the will of SAMUEL CLARKE in
1731. Brunswick County Will Book I, page 305. Samuel Clarke was
the grand-father of John Cator's wife, Jane Cook; Samuel Clarke's
daughter, Mary Clarke having married Henry Cooke. (See Cooke Line
later) HENRY COOKE was a man of prominence, left a will, Brunswick
County Will Book 4, page 241, proved in 1774. In his will he names his
grandson, STERLING CATOR. In 1741, Henry Cooke deeded 100 acres
of land "To my daughter Jane Cator," Brunswick County Deed Book 2,
page 97. Evidently, HENRY CATOR, son of John Cator and Jane Cooke
Cator, was born prior to 1741 and named for his grand-father Henry Cooke.
This places the marriage date of John Cator and Jane Cooke Cator prior to
1741, perhaps much earlier.

He had the following children:
