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

GENERAL DAVID ADAMS. --- A paper of the day says: - "This gentleman was born at the Waxaws, in South Carolina, on the 28th of January, 1766. He served a campaign in the latter part of the Revolution, in the lower portion of South Carolina, under General Henderson, against the British and Tories. After the successful termination of that war, his father removed, and settled on Shoulder Bone Creek, in the State of Georgia. The Creek Indians, at the time, were a powerful nation of savages; a war of extermination existed between them and the white settlers of the frontiers of this State. The attacks of the Creeks were so frequent, being often marked by the extinction of whole families, that the inhabitants of every neighbourhood were compelled to build and live in forts. The younger Adams now came forward in defence of his country, with a zeal that gained the confidence of his fellow citizens; he was elected a major of the militia, and was engaged in the arduous duties of a scout for ten years"

"Major Adams was elected Brigadier-General by the Legislature of Georgia, and subsequently a Major-General. He was appointed to the command of an expedition in the war against the towns on the Tallapoosa River, by the Governor. Having commenced his march with about three hundred volunteers to the above-mentioned towns, General Floyd, being then in the lower part of the nation, with the army under his command, hearing of the expedition under General Adams, and knowing that the savages had evacuated their towns, and embodied in the Horse Shoe, and consequently were too strong for such a force as that commanded by General A., detached a troop of horses to intercept him and turn him back; unfortunately he was too far advanced, and the troop could not overtake him. On arriving at the town opposite, or a little above the bend distinguished by the name of the Horse Shoe, he found it deserted by the Indians, who had retired within their fortifications in the Horse Shoe, out of which they marched up and paraded in considerable numbers, on the opposite side of the river, and fired upon the volunteers in the town, with little or not effect, having slightly wounded one man. It was found impracticable to cross the river, it being very much swollen by the recent rains; and, indeed, it was highly necessary to commence a retreat. Having burnt the village, and destroyed the provisions which the Indians had not removed to their fortifications within the bend of the river, he retired a short distance and encamped for the night. The cunning savages were prowling about his encampment, endeavouring, no doubt, to ascertain the number of the volunteers. They were frequently fired upon by the sentinels. General Adams wisely suffered no fire to be kindled during the night, which was remarkably cold. To this circumstance, and his judicious manouvres, by which he concealed the strength of his detachment, may be attributed his not being attacked and defeated by the powerful force of the savages then in his immediate neighbourhood.

"General Adams held various appointments under the State Government, all of which he discharged with fidelity and ability. He was a Commissioner on the part of the State, when the lands lying between the Ocmulgee and Flint Rivers were obtained. He was always a favourite with his fellow citizens, as a distinguished member of the Legislature for upwards of twenty-five years, and was often Speaker of the House of Representatives."

****************************
The grave of David Adams b 1766 in SC and died in 1834 and is buried in
Jasper County, Ga. was found recently by horseback riders and they plan
to do something about this grave site. David is the brother of Mary
Adams who married Seth Kennedy in Hancock County and this is our family
line. Since David was a RS but does not have a DAR marker, some DAR and
SAR people are trying to get involved to get this grave properly marked.
It is on property that is now owned by the State of Ga. There is a
family marker I understand. Since I am not a horseback rider and 78
years of age it may be sometime before I get to see this grave. Would
like to hear from you if you have any connections and are interested.

Michael,
Early this morning while turkey hunting I took a close look at an old tombstome I found. Way-way-way back in the woods outside of Monticello,GA in Jasper County.
Surprisingly I could read most of the stone & it had a lot of info. General David Adams from S.Carolina had lived for 69 years & died October 19, 1834. It also had info about his family, but I don't remember it all.
I found this interesting so I searched the web & located your info. Do you know anything else about David Adams, or how I might could find out more? Thanks in advance
Kevin Sentell

3 Possibly: Robert Henry Addkison (4/9/1852 - Kosciusko, Attala, Mississipp) who married Lucy Jane Leitaker on 11/18/1874 in Madison Mississippi. Robert Henry Addkison was possibly son of Andrew Jackson Addkison (4/26/1836 - Attala, Mississippi) and Mary Elizabeth Bain. Also show an Andrew Addkison marrying Mary Elizabeth Bain on 5/3/1835 in Attala, Mississippi. *************** I am the great-grandaughter of Mary Lily Addkison Campbell Carlson. Jane Elizabeth Maloney Todd Huntsville, AR USA - Thursday, December 20, 2001 Michael: I believe Charles Brasfield was her nephew. I saw the reference to either Robert or Andrew Addkison in the site, and she is from that family. I have the "Addkison" book that Charles Brasfield put out in the 60's or 70's and have a couple pictures of him and his wife with my Great-grandmother when they visited her in St. Louis. Are you related to the Charles Brasfield that published the Addkison book? ADDKISON Robert Henry

8 I am researching my husband's side of the family for our family tree and heritage book. His paternal grandmother was Lalia M. Brasfield. She married Ira B. Allen in Jun 1924. We are pretty sure that Lalia's mother was Vonia Sanford, who married D. Sid Brasfield in 1903, in Oklahoma (Info from censuses and the Brasfield/Brassfield genealogies website.) Lalia was born in 1904 in Allen, OK. i was hoping that someone might have some information on her or her parents. My husband never got to know his grandparents because of an argument his father Rholand M. Allen had with his dad Ira. My husband's mother was supposed to go visit them when they lived in Grand prairie, TX, but didn't because of the argument. So we didn't even know what their names were until I sent for his father's birth certificate. According to a census I saw D. Sid was supposed to be a son of Leonidus Brasfield.

9 Hi Michael,
I know that I wrote you some time ago telling you I had some new info for you, well here it finally is:

Ira B. Allen info from Census records and birth indexes.

Ira Benton Allen son of Nathaniel Orrin Allen and Rebecca Ella Coker (3rd wife).
Nathaniel married Sarah LeBow 1st, then Allena C.2nd, and lastly Rebecca Ella Coker 3rd.

Nathaniel & Sarah Evelyn LeBow had:
Catherine Fanny & Jane Emma (Twins, their first & mid names could be switched/interchanged, I was just guessing.) B: 1869 Ark Sarah E./Aletha B:4 Dec 1870 Ark Annie A. B:1872 Ark Charles "Chas" O. B: 1875 Tex Otto F. B:1877 Tex

Nathaniel and Allena C. had:
Flora M. B:1890 Tex

Nathaniel & Rebecca Ella (Coker) Birdsong (She was married before to Walter Birdsong) had:
Ella josephine B; Nov 1899
Ira Benton B:1902/1903? Ark

Rebecca kids with Walter S. Birdsong were:
Charles B: 1885 Tex
Sarah B: 1887 Tex
Walter B:1891 Tex
Mary B:1894 Tex

I kept going over and over the Census records because the info on Rebecca and Ella wasn't making sense, surely Nathaniel wasn't married 4 times. finally came to the conclusion that Rebecca and Ella are the same person, unless Nathaniel was married to 2 women at the same time.

Rebecca Coker was born in Nov of 1865 in Manchester, Red River Co., Texas and her father's name was Charles M. Coker but am not sure of the mother's name yet.

Nathaniel Orrin Allen is the son of Peter Benton/ Buell Allen & Mary Rowena Hoskins He was born 12 Feb 1844 Cove, Polk Co./ Sevier Co., Ark.
Died 29 sep 1933 and buried in the Pleasant grove Cemetery.

Well there is more detail but I sure you can take it from there.
Time to stop for now.

Thanks,
Valerie Allen

12 Mike,
I have a little info on this family unfornately, I do not know what girl married a Brassfield, George and Henrietta had 6 children 2 girls and 4 boys. Nellie married Garnett Lowe. So maybe that leaves the other daughter Maudie and she was born 1894. and of course I looked for Jesse Brassfield his wife was Maude E. They were living in Kirksville, Adair Co., Missouri. So I am assuming this is her. Here goes with what info I have. Maude's sibling were Freddie, Ola, Charlie b.July 1890, Clyde b. nov. 1898. Her Parents George b. May 1870 d. Dec. 20, 1926. Henrietta Pope b. 05/19/1872 in Schuyler Co., Mo. d. 12/01/1945 in Kirksville, Adair Co., Missouri. Her parents were William Brady Pope b. abt. 1849 in Indiana. June 19, 1871 in Scotland Co., Missouri He married Charlotte Elston b. abt. 1856 in Illinois. I believer her father to be Andrew Elston or one of his sons kids, I have no proof of him being her Father. Henrietta had two brothers and three sisters. Daniel (no info), Catherine (I have info somewhere), Mamie married a ? Fergie, They were in Quincy, Illinois I contacted the grandson and he gave me the number to his daughter, I called and left messages and no returned calls. Last but not least is Andrew Pope (my line). he was born 02/07/1874 and died 07/22/1941. in Kirksville, Missouri He is buried in Bear Creek Cemetery. He married Edna Bell Schupp/Shoop b. 12/04/1881 in Novinger , Adair Co., Mo. and died 06/05/1947 in Hurdland, Mo. they had five children Jenny m. Clyde Potter, Beddie ? Earl, Pansy (mine Line married John Stewart)., Stella Beatrice m. an Anscomb and a Claybrook and Alfred married Velma Stewart. Andrew was married once before I forgot to a ? McFarland they had one child Ella Lucille She married a Smith and also a Clifton. So. , I am assuming I have finally found a cousin. My father didn't know a whole lot about his side of the family this is how I got started he wanted to know. We moved from Missouri when I was younger and moved back and forth several times and landed back in Quincy, Illinois. I now live in Golden, Illinois. I went to school with a Mike and Peggy and a Pam. Peggy was my sister's age. So where do you live and do you have any info on this family? I can go back further on the Pope side if u don't have the info. Well I hope this helped please let me know if this sounds right or is not correct.
Thank you for responding to my E-mail.
Possible cousins,]

Oliver (OP) was Mayor of McAllen, Texas from 1913 - 1923.
OP donated a one-block tract of land to the City of McAllen for use as a public park in 1917, just six years after the town was incorporated. The McAllen Board of Commisioners officially named the site for him in 1933. The bandstand that was erected on the site has a basement which was the home of the McAllen Public Library from 1936 - 1949.

Buried in the South 1/3 of Lot 9, Block 14.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The following information was taken from the McAllen Daily Press, dated: May 5, 1930.

O. P. Archer whose long 22 year residence was ended Saturday morning by death, which followed in the wake of a lingering illness, Sunday, was honored by hundreds of McAllen and Hidalgo county citizens as last rites were held for him at McAllen High School auditorium.

Before a flower-banked stage, Mr. Archer's last remains lay in a silver casket at the foot of the auditorium. At the conclusion of services those attending filed past the casket to pay final silent tribute to the departed leader whose life span meant much to the city.

Frank G. Crow, John T. Cardwell, T. J. Powell, Stephen Jones, R. E. Horn and John W. Ewing served as pallbearers.

The services were both reverent and impressive, marking as they did the passing of one of the city's best known pioneers. Born in Garland, Tennessee, Mr. Archer came to Texas in 1900. He lived in Corpus Christi for four years, moving later to Brownsville, where from 1904 to 1908 he served as manager of the Texas and Ohio Company sugar plantation near there. In 1908 he came to McAllen, where he resided until his death. Here he was connected with various commercial and municipal enterprises. His outstanding work was his service as mayor of the city, from 1913 until 1923. Other connections included his term as president of McAllen Rotary Club and president of the McAllen Chamber of Commerce.

Surviving him are his widow, Mrs. Clara Hill Archer; two daughters, Clara Martin of McAllen and Hazle Robertson of Fort Stotsenburg, P.I., his mother Mrs. S. E. Archer of Corpus Christi, a sister, Mrs. W. P. Drake of San Benito, and four brothers, Carl C. and Allen of San Antonio, Norman of Memphis, Tenn., and Harry of Corpus Christi.

All except Mrs. Robertson and Norman Archer were present at the Sunday rites.

Mr. Archer was interred at Valhalla Cemetery which was later renamed Roselawn Cemetery.

Date of Death: JANUARY 25, 2011
Obituary: Virginia Brasfield June 30, 1925 to January 25, 2011 BRIGHAM CITY - Virginia Brasfield, a fixture in the Brigham City community for more than 50 years, has passed away at the age of 85. Her family and friends surrounded her in the days before she left us and she was valiant all the way up to the end. Virginia was born in Douglas County, Kansas on June 30, 1925 to Clyde and Margaret Baer. She had seven brothers and sisters Pat, Cora, Shirley, Bud, Gene, Marvin and Marlin. After receiving her education in Kansas she travelled west to Southern California where she worked as a telephone operator after World War II. While there she met Fred Brasfield, whom she married on April 27, 1946. In 1947 she had her first child, Sandra Brasfield, and then in 1954 she had her second child Fred Brasfield Jr. In 1958 they moved to Brigham City, Utah where her husband had gotten a job at Thiokol. Virginia worked at Dover Heating and Air for many years, then at Dr. Thomas Hannum’s office. More recently she worked at H&R Block where she finally really retired at the age of 83, although she continued to do taxes pro bono to help her friends out up until the end. In the late 1980’s she moved with her husband to Cocoa Beach, Florida where they lived in a condo on the beach while he worked at Kennedy Space Center. After her husband retired they returned to Brigham, and they could be seen travelling the highways of America in their motor home. They made several trips down South to visit grandkids and visit the homes of their youth. Virginia had many hobbies; most notably in her younger days she was considered quite the Pinochle player and could shuffle a deck better than any Las Vegas blackjack dealer. She was also a fan of playing board games; her favorite was Yahtzee, which she enjoyed playing with her mother and her grandkids. She loved the outdoors and camping, especially at Wade Lake in Montana’s Centennial Valley. She could be seen lounging outside her motor home or trolling the lake in an old aluminum boat, fishing with her husband and grandkids. She will be making her final trip to Wade Lake this summer where she will have her ashes spread alongside her husband in a grove of Aspen trees overlooking Wade Lake’s crystal blue waters. She is preceded in death by her husband Fred Brasfield, daughter Sandra, mother Margaret, father Clyde, sisters Pat and Shirley and brother Bud. She is survived by her son Fred, daughter-in- law Jane, granddaughter Robbin and her husband Curtis, grandsons Jeremy and Trevor and his wife Jennie, great grandson Jack, and great granddaughters Virginia Grace, Addison Makay, and Ivy Jane. A funeral service will be held February 5, 2011, 11:00 A.M. at Gillies Funeral Home in Brigham City, with the Reverend Curtis Price conducting. Following the service, a celebration of Virginia’s life will be held in her honor at the Eagles Club in Brigham City. You will be missed Virginia, the lives you touched were many and your legacy lives on in all those who knew you. You were really something. Rest In Peace. .

28 Vendovi Island (San Juans) - According to LeWarne, two followers of FATHER DIVINE, Henry Joerns and Ross Humble, obtained a permit for the use of Vendovi as a Peace Mission extension in the early thirties. By 1930, New Thought groups had sprung up on the Pacific coast. The dynamic, Canadian-born evangelist, Aimee Semple McPherson, had established her 5000-seat Angelus Temple in Los Angeles in 1923. In this climate, there were many lesser known practitioners of the new Gospel of JESUS CHRIST on the west coast, one of whom was Henry Joerns, of the Absolute Science Center, who held classes and sermonized on metaphysics.
**********************
Father Devine (c.1875-1965), American Negro religious cult leader. He was born George Baker near Savannah, Ga., and began preaching in the South about 1900. About 1915 he moved to New York, where he founded his Peace Mission Movement and later adopted the name Father Devine.

The movement's salient features included: (1) the worship of Devine as God incarnate; (2) communal living--through cooperative labor without pay and the surrender of their possessions, members enabled Devine to provide them with food and shelter at little cost, thus strengthening their faith in his miraculous powers; (3) vows of the strictest morality, celibacy, and charity--members were enjoined to make restitution for past sins, and remarkable acts of pennance were reported; and (4) the observance of racial equality.

The movement's first communal dwelling, or "Heaven," was in Sayville, NY. Although Devine was forced to move to the Harlem section of New York and later to Philadelphia, his movement grew rapidly. At it's height there were 178 "Heavens," most of them in New York City and Philadelphia. There are no figures on the membership, but it probably ran into the tens of thousands. It subsequently declined, especially after Devine's death--which was a great disillusionment to his followers--in Lower Merion Township, PA., on Sept. 10, 1965.

42 "...It must have been about the time of the Revolution that little Elizabeth Bates was stolen by the Indians. She was 12, the oldest of five children. Her parents had gone to a clear spot in the South Carolina wilderness where they had raised a crop. The group was preparing to return to the settlement, fearing an Indian attack. The father was helping the mother mount a horse when a war whoop broke the stillness.

Mrs. Bates begged her husband and neighbor to run. the women and children were taken prisoners. In camp, in the evening, some of the tribe brought in scalps. Elizabeth knew by the color of the hair and the bloody clothes that her father and his helper had met their deaths.
A little baby brother was born after that. then the Indians continued to retreat with their captives and in attempting to ford the swollen Roanoke River, the baby was drowned. The rest of the family were prisoners about a year.
Finally the whites and Indians exchanged prisoners and the Bates family went back to the home settlement."

44 Oh, yes. OK here's some. Solomon was the oldest and Alfred the you8ngest. Which from my point of view was good as the four older brothers served in the Civil War and two were killed. Alfred was too young to go. E160. BATTIN, Alfred (John, Richard, Richard, Richard, John). Alfred was born Feb. 10, 1850 in Boone Co. IN and was the only son of this family too young to enlist for Civil War service. He married first Dec. 24, 1873 in Wabasha, Wabasha Co. MN, Mary Elizabeth Benedict, born Sept. 8, 1852 in CT, daughter of James Knox Benedict and Phoebe Ann Pond, both descendents of old colonial families. They had arrived in MN in 1856. This couple were 7th Day Adventists and had: E415.Greta Madelein born in St. Paul, Ramsey Co. MN Nov. 6, 1878. I cannot confirm her birth for the birth records for that year have been lost. She is found in Grafton, Sibley Co. MN with her parents in 1880. She married in Steele Co. MN Fred O. Baker, born Feb. 11, 1875, son of George Washington Baker and Rosetta Ann Champlin also descendents of old colonial families. They had: Merrill Frank who married first Florence Holmberg, second Blanche Holmberg Coleman, and third Della Davis Sheffield; Lynn Everett who married first Mary _____, second Florence Smith; Glenn Elton single; Dorothy Claire who married Wilbur David Roberts. Greta died in Miami, Dade Co. FL Jan. 28, 1950 and Fred died there Dec. 1, 1954. They are buried there as is Glenn Elton. E416.Jay Knox Mary died in childbirth with this last child in Wabasha Mar. 27, 1885 and according to Greta, was buried in the cemetery at Reed's Landing where the Benedict family is buried. I find no stone, she is not included in the cemetery records, and there is no death record in Wabasha Co. Yet, Greta was my grandmother and told my mother these facts. She was old enough to attend the funeral and was certain about the cemetery. I am inclined to take her word for it but wonder at the lack of documentation. Alfred married second Ida Douglass, daughter of Frederick Douglass and Abigail Louise Carpenter. It is my understanding that they were married in SD where they had gone separately to homestead. They had: E417.Viola Ora born July 8, 1889 in Kingsbury, SD who married William Cecil Gates Jan. 7, 1917 and had: Dorothy Priscilla Mar. 8, 1922 married Harold Kisling; Harold Norman Oct. 1, 1926 married DeltaLee McIntyre. Viola died Oct. 15, 1954 at Terra Bella, CA Alfred and Ida returned to Medford, Steele Co. MN and farmed in that area. Ida died Aug. 26, 1910 in Medford only a block from the house in which she was born. She was buried in Medford Union Cemetery there. She was survived by Alfred, Greta, Jay K., Viola, Fernando Douglass and Nettie Douglass. The last two were brother and sister. Alfred went to CA and died July 23, 1911 at St. Helena. The notice of his death in the 7th Day Adventist newspaper gives his birthdate as Feb. 10, 1849 in IN. Services were at the 7th Day church in St. Helena. Mouraine Dr. Mouraine R.
