Cumberland Presbyterian Minister

1817-1895

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

ZELLNER.--Rev. M. Zellner passed away peacefully Nov. 10, 1895, at his home in Fayette County, Tenn. He was born in Georgia in July, 1817, and in childhood came with his parents to Maury County, Tenn. He embraced religion in 1834, at a camp meeting held by the Methodists, and afterwards moved to Oxford, Miss., and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He was married to M. A. Alexander in 1834, and removed, in 1846, to Fayette County, Tenn., where he remained until his death. He was received as a candidate under the care of the Memphis Presbytery, in 1848, and was ordained in 1857. Although his education was limited, he had by nature a fine mind. By his diligence and perseverance in the use of his mind he soon became a man of more than ordinary information. He soon became popular as a preacher, and was ever in demand as a pastor. His efficiency was demonstrated by the long pastorate he held at his last charge, which was one of more than twenty years, and was recognized as one of the best organized churches in the presbytery. He was a warm friend and supporter of all the enterprises of his church. He took especial interest in young men preparing for the ministry, and for years served as Chairman of Committee on Examination. The writer remembers with pleasure the encouragement received from him. As a presbyter he had few equals. No member of the Memphis Presbytery has, perhaps, been, since his inability to attend, so missed in its meetings as he has. He leaves an aged widow, who was truly a helpmate through all the years of his faithful and useful life. He also leaves seven children, and a host of admiring friends.

THE REV. MARION ZELLNER.

 

By Rev. T. H. Padgett.

 

Rev. M. Zellner to whose virtues and memory this sketch is devoted was born in the State of Georgia in July of the year 1817. While he was yet a child he with his parents moved to Maury county, Tennessee. In the year 1834 he embraced religion at a camp meeting. Some time after this he moved to Oxford, Miss., where he joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. In the same year of his conversion he was married to Miss M. A. Alexander. In 1846 he returned to the State of Tennessee, settling near the town of Hickory Withe in Fayette county. In the year 1848, having convictions as to a call to the ministry, he was received as a candidate under the care of the Memphis Presbytery, and was in 1857 ordained to the full work of the ministry. Brother Zellner died on Sunday morning, November 10, 1895, at the advanced age of seventy-eight years, he having thus gone beyond his three-score and ten years, and by reason of strength having almost attained to the greater period of four-score years. From the above dates it will be seen that Brother Zellner was in the work of the ordained ministry for a period of thirty-eight years. For many years Brother Zellner was the subject of great and trying afflictions, but in the midst of it all he did what he could with the greatest Christian fortitude.

 

The writer of this sketch was often at the home of Brother Zellner while he was living and therefore he knows something of his admirable home-life. He also knew him as a co-presbyter for he was associated with him in that capacity. Besides this the writer and Brother Zellner labored together more than once in protracted meetings.

 

Because of such intimate acquaintance and because of some additional facts gathered during a recent visit to Mrs. Zellner at the old home place, the author of this sketch can say with confidenceand truth:

 

1. That although it has been five years since Brother Zellner's death yet there is a host of friends of this good man who will hail with delight the opportunity to see the face of one they loved so well even in picture form, and who will also be greatly pleased to see again in print any lines which may speak of his virtues.

 

2. Brother Zellner was a true man, both in the family and in the wider sphere of his citizenship. This was learned from observation and also from the general reputation borne by Brother Zellner prior to his death and since. The writer does not remember ever to have heard a word contrary to this general statement, but many times he heard and saw much to warrant what is here said.

 

3. Brother Zellner was a preacher of no mean ability, and his many efforts in his appointed work were crowned with happy success. During his long ministry he preached at Pleasant Grove, Shady Grove, Mt. Carmel, Morning Sun, Hickory Withe, Mt. Pleasant, Germantown, Collierville and other places. He was instrumental in establishing churches at Morning Sun, Hickory Withe, Galloway, Bartlett and other places.

 

4. Brother Zellner was a fine presbyter. This was on all-hands conceded by those who knew him in that capacity. The same cannot be said of everyone whether among the dead or the living. Brother Zellner knew our Book and customs to perfection. Besides, his patienceand grace made it possible to him so to present his points and plans as to cause but little friction. Thus he kept the favor of all and was almost sure to carry any point he rightly sought.

 

5. Brother Zellner was a friend to all the enterprises of the church and cheerfully did what he could for their support. He not only gave of his own means, but he interested others in their behalf. He took an especial interest in encouraging young men who sought to go into the ministry, and in that way has left a large influence in the world--an influence which, though he is dead, lives in the life and works of others.

 

6. Brother and Mrs. Zellner were the parents of ten children, four of whom are dead. The wife and mother still lives in the old home near Hickory Withe. Their daughter Fannie, who since became Mrs. McNeely, lives with her. They are sweet-spirited and intelligent Christian women. John W. Zellner lives a few miles away. He is a good citizen and a fine worker in the church of which he is a member. Another son, J. A. Zellner, lives at Milan, Tenn., while H. Partner Zellner lives on the old homestead. Two daughters of these parents are Mrs. Anna Alexander and Mrs. Jossie Wilson.

 

7. Brother Zellner was Chaplain of the Thirteenth Tennessee Calvary, and at the time of his death he was the only minister living who was a member of the Memphis Presbytery when he joined it.

 

Of Brother Zellner it may be truly said that he fought a good fight, that he finished his course, that he kept the faith, and that he is now in the enjoyment of that crown of righteousness which the Lord shall give to all in that day; or to use the figure of another, "He came to his grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in his season."

Gold Bar of Honor Given Mother Whose Son Was Confederate Soldier

 

A beautiful and touching ceremony occurred in Arlington, TN last week when Mrs. Martha A. Zellner was presented with a gold bar of honor in token of the fact that she was the mother of a son who fought in the Confederate army during the dark days in 1861-65.Mrs. Zellner will be 100 years old in October.

 

Representatives of five generations were present when the bar was pinned upon Mrs. Zellner.It was the gift of the Southern Confederate Memorial Association and Mrs. Charles W. Frazier, state president from Tennessee and Mrs. C.L. Bryan, president of the Memphis association had intended being present and had planned a formal presentation ceremony.However, Mrs. Zellner had been very ill, and it was deemed inadvisable for anyone to be present save members of her family and her family physician, Dr. R.E. Herring.

 

The box containing the bar of honor was placed in the had of Mrs. Zellner by her Great-great-grandson, Robert Gragg Wilson, whose picture, taken several months ago, is shown with that of his great-great grandmother.Dr. Herring pinned the bar upon the dress of his patient and at her request led the family in prayer with all of them joining in the Lord's Prayer led by Mrs. Zellner.

 

Members of the Zellner family present included her daughters, Mrs. Fannie McNeely and Mrs. Joanna Alexander, her grandson and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. S.Y. Wilson, her great grandson and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Robert Wilson and her great-great grandson, little Robert Gragg Wilson.

 

A gold bar of honor for every living mother of a Confederate veteran was the "happy thought" of Mrs. M. Wilson, present general of the Confederate Southern Memorial Association which was presented at the annual convention of the association in October, at Atlanta.All statepresidents were instructed to find the mothers in their states, with name and credentials of their veteran sons, and report same to the president general.Twelve applications had been received up to Feb. 1, from Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and Louisiana, ages ranging from 95 to 102.

 

Mrs. Charles W. Frazier, state president from Tennessee, has had the honor of presenting the bar to the next oldest mother in the person of Mrs. Zellner, who will be 100 years of age on Oct. 31, 1920.Mrs. Zellner is the mother of the late John W. Zellner, Pittman, 13th Tennessee regiment.She is the widow of the late Rev. Marion Zellnerwho was appointed chaplain in the 12th Tennessee cavalry partisans Rangers, under Col. Richardson.Both father and son served until the end of the war, the latter dying many years afterwards from the effects of wounds he received in service and from which he suffered throughout his life.Mrs. Zellner, as well as her husband, was born in North Carolina; immigrated to Mississippi, was married at Hernando in February 1842, came to Tennessee as a bride and reared a family of four sons and five daughters of whom one son and three daughters now live.

 

She makes her home with a daughter, Mrs. McNeely, who, widowed in her youth, has devoted her life in the care and comfort of her mother.Mrs. Zellner has 18 grandchildren, 55 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great grandchildren.She takes an active interest in all current events and followed the course of the world war.Her recent formal presentation of her bar but Wednesday in her own room in the presence of her family, it was given to her by Master Robert Gragg Wilson.

 

To know her is to love her.She is a wonderful character.She gave her heart to God when she was a little girl.When she was a little over 22 years old she gave her life into the care and keeping of a noble young man.They lived together happily until the Civil War took her husband and 17 year old son to fight for their country, leaving her alone with very small children on a big country farm.Everyone who lived through those dark days knows what a struggle this was.She fought on bravely alone, until the close of the war, when God gave her back her husband to live to a ripe old age and to take his granchildren on his knee and tell them stories of the days of the Confederacy.

 

Her son, John William Zellner, thoughwounded five times, came back to his home at the close of the war, and later married and reared a large family of children.

 

To Mrs. Zellner goes the honor of receiving the first of the bars which will be awarded to all living mothers of former Confederate soldiers.

AN AGED RESIDENT DEAD(Newspaper obituary from a Marysville paper)

 

†† One of the very oldest citizens of our city passed away Tuesday morningat 1 oíclock.Her death was very sudden and unexpected.When in theforepart of the winter she lay seriously sick with pneumonia and hearttrouble, no one expected the aged lady to rally, the disease combinedwith old age seemingly making all recovery impossible.Contrary to thepredictions of all, she rallied and once more regained her strength,until on Tuesday morning after a brief attack of her old trouble she fellpeacefully asleep.††† Anna Catharine Zoellner was born May 1st, 1814, in Halsdorf, Hessia,Germany, where she was reared and educated, and where she lived most ofher life.There she was married to Henry Zoellner and there all herchildren, ten in number, were born.In 1869, she and family emigratedfor this country and settled in Hamilton, Ohio, two years later herhusband died and left her to continue her pilgrimage alone.At Hamiltonthree of her children died.In 1880 she came to this city and lived withher daughter, Matilda Wagner, on South Chestnut Street.A little morethan a year ago her daughter, Mary Kandel, died, whom she now joins in theworld beyond the grave.††† Mrs. Zoellner was a very robust and strong person, physically, farabove the average.She was during her whole life a constant and consistent member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and lived in Christian peace andharmony with all around her, doing many kind acts of Christian benevolenceand mercy quietly and unostentatiously.For years she has been resignedlyawaiting her end, and now at last she calmly passed over with sure hope ofa glorious resurrection and a never-ending life of unalloyed happinessin her Saviorís kingdom of glory.††† She attained the high old age of 85 years, 9 months and 12 days, andleaves six children; Valentine Zoellner, Mrs. John Coleman, Mrs. Horst andMrs. Wagner, of this city; Mrs. George Yeachle, of Hamilton; also twostep-sons, one at Hamilton, the other at Sandusky.She leaves also asister in (St. Paul, Minn.), 28 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.††† The funeral services take place on Friday as follows; 1:30 at thehouse, 2 at the church (sun time) and will be conducted by the pastor,F.W.

Notes for MARTHA MABRY:OBITUARY

Mrs. Martha Zellner, wife of Bro. George Zellner, died at her home on January 7th, 1882.She suffered severely for two days, from a sudden attack of congestion, but became easy and calmly breathed her last as pleasantly as if dropping asleep.

†† She was a daughter of Elder Daniel Mabry, one of Monroe's noble pioneers, who many years ago filled out his allotted time and was called to his long home.She was born May 12th, 1828, being 53 years, seven months and 25 days of age.

†† She united with the Primitive Baptist church in 1852, and was baptized by Elder William Dismuke, and lived a sound and consistent Baptist up to her death.She was dearly beloved and highly esteemed by all who knew her.I have known her a long while and it was always a pleasure to me to meet her, and to hear her talk.She was kind mild and pleasant, and good company, and certainly was one of the Excellent of the Earth.She was the mother of ten children, three of whom preceded her to the grave, and she now leaves her dear husband, and seven children all grown, with many relatives and friends to mourn their loss, which is her eternal gain.But our sister is not dead, God has only taken her to her eternal home there to live with Christ her Savior.In this dispensation of God's providence, her husband has lost a lovely, precious and faithful companion, her children a loving and instructive mother, the community a sincere and good friend, and the church a pious, faithful member.May God bless the bereaved husband and children, may they live to imitate the examples of the dear one that is gone, and may He prepare each one of them to meet her beyond the grave in that haven of rest where afflictions never come, and parting will be known no more, is the desire of the writer.

D. T. Zellner Dead

Just twenty years ago this fall, Daniel Thomas Zellner, oldest son of the late George Zellner, left Monroe County for the west.he made his home in Arkansas, and during all these years his family back in Georgia never saw him and scarcely heard of him.

†† Not long since he died very suddenly at Redfield, Ark., where he had been engaged in business for several years.No friend or relative was with him when he died, and death came so suddenly that he had not time to make a dying statement.The people among whom he died knew very little of him, for he was a man who kept closely his own counsel.

†† It was only be accident that the news of his death reached Georgia, and non of the particulars have yet been learned.

"Nabours Family" written by W. A. Nabours

"There were three brothers by the name of Nabours that came from England to Virginia, when it was a colony, before the was of the revolution.They remained in Virginia during the war.After the war they located in South Carolina and there they began their families and in 1810 Jeremiah Nabours (the principal of these memoirs) was born.And remained there until 1820 when he with his father moved to Tuscaloosa County Alabama.And there the subject grew up from 10 years of age to man hood without any chance of education except a very poor country school with only a week of actual attendance altogether during his life.There was quite a large family of the parentage and from this home each one chose a different location and it is the purpose of this sketch to follow only the life of the subject of this writing, who when he left this home went to Pickens County, Alabama and there worked by the day or month as best he could at any kind of labor he could get.Here he married Miss Mary Stewart of whom we will have more to say later.The subject of sketch went to the republic of Texas in 1837 on a prospecting tour looking for a place to build a permanent home.Late in the fall of 1837 he returned to Alabama deciding not to move his family to Texas.Late in the fall of 1838 he moved to Itawamba County, Mississippi.There on Jan 30, 1839 the writer was born.There the family lived until the fall of 1849 at which time the family moved to Washington County, Texas and rented land for two years, then bought a small farm and lived on it two years.Sold it and moved to Bell County, Texas.Lived there one year moved to Milam County, Texas in the fall of 1854 and lived there until his death in 1876.His life was always honorable and upright one being for many years a minister of the Gospel in the Methodist Episcopal Church South, was never in the iterrant book but did local work always preaching to isolated and destitute communities.The other side of the house the Stewarts as before stated and first known in America as the Stewarts of Virginia and Mary Stewart who became the wife of Jeremiah Nabours was born in Virginia but her father moved to Kentucky and there to Alabama where she and the main subject of this paper were married and both were as one, from their marriage until death separated them.She surviving him for several years.These Stewarts claimed to be direct descendants of the Mary Stewart Queen of Scotland.But we have no proof of this, but we do claim to have made a record for the truth and honesty extending back to 1776 for both the Nabours and Stewart.

(This was written by W. A. Nabours in June 1922, just before starting to New Mexico with two of his daughters, to visit his other daughter and son who were at Three Rivers, New Mexico at the time.While at Three Rivers he was taken sick and brought back to Temple, Texas, near his old home, Cameron, Texas, so that he could have every medical care but on August 19, 1922, he passed away.On Sunday morning August 20th, his body was put away in Salem Cemetery, where his Father and Mother had been buried.)

***************************************************

W. A. Nabours obituary

†††† Saturday, August 19, 1922, Mr. W. A. Nabours died in Temple, Texas, after an illness of two weeks.

†††† From the home of his son, Mr. Jerry Nabours of Cameron, funeral service was conducted by Rev. Ira F. Key, pastor of the Cameron Methodist church were held at Salem church, of which the Nabours family for many years had been faithful members, followed by burial in Salem cemetery.

†††† Cameron Lodge No. 56, I. O. O. F. had charge of impressive ritualistic services at the grave.

†††† W. A. Nabours was born January 30, 1839 in Mississippi.He came to Texas at the age of ten years with the family of his father, Rev. Jeremiah Nabours a Methodist preacher.

†††† In 1873 Mr. Nabours was married near Cameron to Miss Eliza Zellner.Four children were born to them all of whom with their mother survive.They are Mr. Jerry Nabours of Cameron, Mrs. E. L. Woodward of Santa Anna, Texas, Mrs. C. A. Edwards of Three Rivers, New Mexico, and Mrs. Dave Robinson of Temple, Texas.Besides these, seven grand children and two great grandchildren are left to mourn the loss of the grandfather.

†††† All his children were in family reunion at the home of Mrs. C. A. Edwards in Three Rivers, New Mexico when Mr. Nabours was taken sick.After a few days of illness there he was brought to Temple where he died Saturday at 6 p. m.

†††† His passing is sincerely mourned by a large circle of friends.His long life of faithful citizenship and devotion to duty has been an inspiration to many and the influence he exerted will continue to live.

†††† In his suit of Confederate Gray he was a familiar figure at the annual reunions of Hood's Texas Brigade of which he was a most devoted member.His wife always attended reunions with him and their absence will be keenly felt by the thinning ranks of that noble and historic band of brave men who left Texas at the first call for troops in 1861 and by their courage and valor made the history of the Southland so brilliant.

†††† Mr. Nabours was not only a make but a preserver of those priceless recollections, having contributed to several Southern Histories from the treasur home of his memory.

†††† In the Confederate Veteran of Feb. 1916 was published an article written by him, "Active Service of a Texas Command," in which is recounted the organization and service of Co. B, 5th Texas Regiment, Hood's Brigade, of which Mr. Nabours was a Second Sergeant.†† He served bravely through the four years of war and was one of the ten members of the Confederate Company that left Cameron in 1861, to surrender with Lee at Appomattox.His surviving Confederate comrades in Milam, L. W. Miller and Elbert E. Pool.

†††† Mr. Nabours enjoyed the utmost confidence of the people of Milam county as was proven by his long years of public service.He was for twelve years County Treasurer retiring at his own volition in 1910.

†††† Later he lived in West Texas to be near his daughters.His last home was in Santa Anna, Texas, with his grandson Lee Woodward, who keeps alive in his name the undying devotion of the Southern soldier for his famous chieftain.

Jim Nabours, Colorful Range Boss and Trail Driver, Heads for Last Round Up In Death

 

†††† Jim Nabours, Texas pioneer and old Trail Driver, whose name was immortalized in Emerson Hough's famous interpretation of moving herds from southwestern ranges by the railroad at Abilene, Kansas, died in El Paso last week.He was 81 years old.

†††† Although a real character and a native of Milam county, he was fictionized in the book "North of 36" and his role of ranch foreman and trail boss found its way to the screen from the same book.Emerson Hough was his friend.On his ranch in New Mexico the famous writer went for material for the book.Jim Nabours told him the story of the Del Sol Ranch at Lockhart and of the plight of Texas cattleman, who desperate for a market, turned eagerly up the wastes to Abilene with thousands of longhorn cattle.

†††† The men who drove the herds up the trail were as wild and reckless lot as ever left their impress on the turbulent years of the state's early struggle.In that county Jim Nabours held his own and more.In the more gentle role of citizen his contribution to the task of civilizing the border lands was notable.

†††† The Del Sol ranch was then many sections of rolling plains at Lockhart.Old man Lockhart died and left his daughter, Tasie, with millions of acres and cattle on a thousand hills but no money with which to pay her riders.Jim Nabours was the foreman of the Del Sol.When news came that the railroad, then building across the continent, had reached Abilene, therange boss gathered the first herd from the broad areas of the Del Sol and moved them out upon that colorful and romantic trail to somewhere North of 36.

†††† Jim Nabours wanted Taisie to stay at home.After all it was no place for a woman, on the trail.It was Jim's problem.He felt responsible as only such men couldabout this girl who had sobbed in his arms when old man Lockhart died, leaving orders to his range boss.Tasie was determined and so was Jim lost his temper as he did a number of times on the trail up, once shooting the daylights out of a damn Yankee who said something "agin the South."†† Parental authority was resting heavily on this rough man of the plains when he said: "My God, Miss Taisie, ain't I yer Ma?"It did not do any good and Taisie won and went along with the herd.

†††† A mossy old Texas longhorn named "Alamo" by Jim led the herd up to Abilene.When the cattle reached the town they stampeded and old Alamo was killed by a train.

†††† Wild Bill Hikok was city marshal at Abilene.Some of Jim's riders had a run in with Bill and got away with it.Abilene was then in the bad lands.John Wesley Hardin, Jim Taylor, and Manning and Joe Clements of Gonzales were there as were many other desperadoes.Wyatt Earp, the fastest man on the draw in real fiction, along with old Bill Tilghman and Hikok finally tamed the wild men of the plains and made Abilene safe for prospering Texas cow men.

†††† Jim Nabours was born in Milam county.He left here is 1877 and went to Lincoln county, New Mexico.He got mixed up in the famous Lincoln county war and was foreman of the grand jury that indicted Billy the Kid.The Kid was never brought to trial.He was killed by Pat Garrett, noted sheriff.

†††† Several years ago Jim Nabours moved to El Paso.He was an uncle of Homer Nabours, county clerk, and Mrs. Pearl House, retiring county treasurer.

Picturesque Jim Nabours in 'North of 36' was Former Resident of Milam Co.

By Mrs. Jeff T. Kemp

No novel of recent years has attracted more favorable comment in the Southwest than Emerson Hough's "North of Thirty Six," a romance of the cattle trail from Texas to Abilene, Kansas.It was adapted to the screen and filmed on the Bassett Blakely ranch near Houston, and has been an exceptional success in the picture shows everywhere.

†††† A prominent character in the story is Jim Nabours, foreman of the cattle ranch.

†††† It will be of interest to Cameron people to know that the real Jim Nabours used to live near Cameron and is the living uncle of Willard H. Nabours of the Cameron Chevrolet Company, of Mrs. John House, ofJerry Nabours and that he has a large and influential family connection in and near Cameron.The brother of the original Jim Nabours if R. A. Nabours, who now lived hear Gause.

†††† When W. H. Nabours of the Cameron Chevrolet Company read North of Thirty Six he wrote to the author Emerson Hough to ask if he knew his uncle in New Mexico and received the following letter from him.

†††† Chicago, April 26, 1928

Mr. W. H. Nabours

326 East Grand Ave.

Oklahoma City, Okla

My dear Mr. Nabours:Your letter is something of a starter but I am mighty glad to get it.When I was writing North of Thirty Six there came to me in a sort of a dream of recollection the name "Jim Nabours" when I was hunting for a good name for my ranch foreman.

†††† Of course, I knew Jim Nabours on the old Carrizo near White Oaks, New Mexico.I lived in White Oaks in 1881 and knew all that country.Your uncle Jim and I used to kill coyotes out on the ranch and I remember there were a few antelope there at that time.

†††† If you know where the real Jim Nabours is today, please let me know because I would give almost anything to see him or to write to him.I fear that long since he has gone to join the great majority.Perhaps if I had know he was still living I would not have dared to borrow his name.He will understand as you do that there was no attempt to borrow anything more than the name.I did write, however, with every reverence for the old Southwest which I loved so much and which had so much influence on my later life.

††† Please tell me where I can find old Jim Nabours.

Yours very faithfully,

Emerson Hough.Before a responce from W. H. Nabours to the letter quoted above reached the great novelist, Emerson Hough passed away.He died before he learned of the whereabouts of his old cowboy friend, Jim Nabours.

from C. T. (TRAYLOROO@YAHOO.COM)October 2001

Will and Myrtle ranched with success east of Las Cruces, NM. They built a nice home in the upscale area of Las Cruces, yet occupied. Much of the family are buried in the Masonic Cemetery, Las Cruces; but not in a family plot. The cemetery office must be contacted for directions to their various graves.
