General Notes: Husband - Samuel Farrow RICE

From a short biobraphy of Samuel Farrow RICE on page 470 of Alabama, her history, resources, war record, and public men : from 1540 to 1872 by Willis Brewer: "...Samuel Farrow RICE, now a resident of this county [Montgomery County, Alabama]. He is the son of Judge Wm. RICE, who was a State senator in South Carolina. His mother was a sister of Z. P. [Zachariah Pines] HERNDON, a noted South Carolina lawyer, another of whose sisters married Hon. Samuel FARROW of that State." It also provides Samuel's schooling and a brief history of his associations as a lawyer in Alabama. Among his partnerships was one with Philip E. PEARSON in Talladega, Alabama. "Judge RICE married a daughter [Amanda] of Major P. E. PEARSON, at one time of Talladega."

"From The Montgomery Advertiser, 4 January 1890: The news of the death of Judge Samuel F. RICE will be received with sorrow all over Alabama. He has been identified with the State ever since his early manhood, and with this city nearly 40 years. Judge Samuel F. Rice died at his residence on Madison Avenue at 8 o'clock last night, in the 74th year of his age. His death was caused by heart disease, and after the attack he gradually grew worse until his big heart forever ceased its beating. Last spring Judge RICE had a severe stroke of paralysis. He leaves a wife and three children. The children are a widowed daughter, Mrs. Daisy GLAZE, a young son, Samuel, 11 years of age, and a little daughter, Marguerite Wiley, aged 3 years. No man in Alabama was better known through out the limits of the State than Samuel Farrow RICE . He was a son of Judge William RICE , who was a State Senator in South Carolina. His mother was a sister of Z. P. HERNDON, a noted South Carolina lawyer, another of whose sisters married Samuel FARROW, of that State. The subject of this sketch was born in Union District, South Carolina, June 2, 1816, and was graduated at the South Carolina College.He opened an office in Winnsboro, but in 1838 came to this State and settled in Talladega. He at once purchased a newspaper and edited it six years. In 1840 and again in 1841, he represented Talladega County in the Legislature In 1852 he settled in Montgomery as the associate of Colonel James E. BELSER. In December 1854, he was elected to the Supreme Court bench. He resigned that position in 1859, and represented Montgomery County in the Legislature that year. From 1861 to 1865 he represented Montgomery and Autauga Counties in the State Senate."

General Notes: Wife - Katherine SAUNDERS

Said to be "of Virginia." The 1880 census lists Katherine's birth in South Carolina; however, the 1900 lists Virginia as place of birth for her and her parents.

Katherine was widowed in 1898, when her husband, George Butler PEARSON, Jr. died.

In 1900, "Katie" has three of her grandchildren living with her. Her daughter Mary Alston married Joseph G. MARTIN. They also live in Fairfield County in the same township as Katie. Curiously, Mary and Joseph have been married seven years and the census says she had no children, or probably meaning none living with her. The grandchildren are with their parents in 1910 and 1920.

General Notes: Husband - Brigadier General John H. PEARSON, II, RS-SC

John PEARSON Jr., born May 30, 1743, a son of John PEARSON and Mary RAIFORD. An historical marker, numbered U-2, on Bluff Road, S. C. Route 48 where it crosses Mill Creek states;
"EARLY RICHMOND COUNTY SETTLEMENTS: FIRST SETTLEMENTS MADE ABOUT 1740 ON THIS CREEK, ORIGINALLY CALLED RAIFORD'S, NOW MILL CREEK. HOWELL'S FERRY ACROSS CONGAREE RIVER BELOW CREEK'S MOUTH WAS USED 1756 THROUGH THE REVOLUTION. JOHN PEARSON (1743-1819 BORN NEAR HERE WAS FIRST KNOWN WHITE CHILD BORN IN BOUNDS OF PRESENT COUNTY."
( "A guide to Columbia: South Carolina's capital city" by Jane Kealhofer Simons, page 85)

John married his first cousin, Sarah RAIFORD, a niece of his mother and daughter of Philip RAIFORD III and Judith WESTON.

John entered the Revolutionary War at the first alarm and rose to the rank of Major, serving under Francis MARION. . He later received the rank of General in the South Carolina militia. His Will is recorded in Fairfield County, Camden S.C. Will Book 6/23/1815--11/18/1819. His Revolutionary War pay record is in "Stub Indents" , Vol. O-Q, p. 32: "No. 163. Lib. O Issued the 2d April 1785 to Mr. John PEARSON for One hundred and ninety three pounds three Shillings and one penny Sterling for 225 days duty in the Militia as Captain and Major - And for Sundries supplied for Militia USE in 1781 - and 1782 - Vr. account audited & c____ Principal 193..3..1 Interest - - - 13..10..4"

After the Revolution, John served in the third and the fourth General Assemblies of the South Carolina Legislature.

Published election returns for the South Carolina Legislature list: "Senator for Chester, Fairfield and Richland - John PEARSON. [South Carolina State Gazette,October 18, 1806]

Nothing is left of his home but scattered bricks, granite steps and cellar. On the crest of a hill at Parr Shoals, these ruins and a granite wall enclosing family graves are all that remain. (A Fairfield Sketchbook, Bolick, p 210).

From McMaster's History of Fairfield County, page 215-16: "General John PEARSON, eldest son of John P. (who was a native of Berkshire Co. England & early settled in Carolina) was born in what is now Richland County, SC, in 1743. Under the instructions of his father and with a little school education, he became a very good English scholar. He was, however, cut out for action, & devoted but very little time to the cultivation of letters. He was attentive to the main chance - acquired considerable money, purchased a few hands and a noble plantation on the Broad River, in Fairfield, where he fixed himself for life. At the commencement of the War, Mr. PEARSON was appointed Major of Volunteers (every Whig was a volunteer) and took the field under SUMTER. He did much service under the command of the Gamecock of the Revolution, and was sometimes dispatched on distant and perilous duty. He knew what it was to thirst, to starve, to sleep on the cold damp ground in pestilent swamps, & go in rags and tatters through the bitterness of winter. Major PEARSON finished his career with a high character for courage, activity, and conduct ; no officer of his grade carried with him to the walks of private life a higher & more affectionate regard of those he had commanded in days of peril and difficulty."
"The Fairfield people sent him perhaps oftener than one term to the Legislature when that body met in Charleston. On the re-organization of the Militia system in 1796, there was a vacancy for a Colonel's command in the newly constructed Fairfield regiment, & he was elected over Major TURNER; & subsequently attained the rank of Brigadier-General. In 1804 he was elected State Senator for the district of Fairfield, Richland, and Chester, & at the expiration of his senatorial term, he dropped all public employments, devoting the balance of his days to neighborly duties & the improvement of the estate. All through life, he was the blessed peacemaker and the adjuster of difficulties. He reconciled, as with authority, husbands and wives who had become discontented, and dissatisfied parents, & children. No one who ever came to his Chancery, ever left it displeased, & all said, or thought or felt, 'blessed is the peacemaker'. He accumulated a large estate and exercised unlimited hospitality, and practiced a liberal charity. He died about 1820, in the 76th year of his age. The love of his country was the last glow that warmed his old heart."

There is a memorial to John PEARSON in Parr, Fairfield County, South Carolina.

Another biography appears in Biographical Dictionary of South Carolina Representatives, Vol. 3, page 543:
John PEARSON, son of John PEARSON (d. 1771?) and Mary RAIFORD, was born 30 May 1743 near the Congaree River. He settled on the Broad River in that area which became Fairfield District. Between 1785 and 1814, he obtained through grants some 13,992 acres in Camden District; furthermore, PEARSON, Timothy RIVES, and Philip PEARSON were granted as tenants in common 820 acres near the Broad River (1787). By the time of his death, he had become a successful planter and bequeathed six plantations amounting to 3,151 acres. An inventory of his estate revealed he owned 65 slaves.
During the American revolution, PEARSON served as a militia major under Thomas SUMTER. After the war, he continued military service as lieutenant colonel of the Fairfield Regiment (1796-1800) and brigadier general of the Eighth Brigade (1800-1806). Elected to the House, he represented the District between the Broad and Catawba Rivers in the Third (1779-1780)and Fourth (1782) General Assemblies. PEARSON also was a member of the State Senate, serving the election district of Fairfield, Chester and Richland Counties in the Seventeenth (1806-1808) and Eighteenth (1808-1809) General Assemblies. Other offices he held included tax inquirer and collector for both sides of the broad River (1766) and for the district Between the Broad and Catawba Rivers (1779, 1786) and commissioner, to contract for the opening of the Broad and Pacolet Rivers. He was a member of Mount Sion Society (1777).
On 21 May 1765, PEARSON wed his cousin Sarah RAIFORD, daughter of Philip (d. 1761?) and Judith RAIFORD. They were the parents of at least seven children: John Jr., Philip Raiford, Grace (m. B. V. LAKIN), Nancy (m. Thomson MAYO), Sarah (m. James ELKINS), Mary, (m. John McKEMIE) and Judith (m. George E. SMITH). Survived by his wife and children, John PEARSON died 25 October 1819 in Fairfield District.

General Notes: Husband - Capt. John P. PEARSON

From Historical Collections of the Joseph Habersham Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution Vol I, page 130-132 : "John Pearson, an English gentleman of high rank, was born at Windsor, on the Thames, about 1690 and died at his estate, "Windsor Forest ", Fairfield District S.C. in 1760. He was educated for the British Navy . He had two sisters, one marrying a "Board" and the other marrying a "Coffin" . On the death of his father, he, disagreeing with a maternal uncle, came to this country, landing somewhere on the Jersey coast, intending to ship to the West Indies. Off the coast of Florida , the small boat in which he and a few companions were making the voyage, was captured by pirates. He managed to escape by leaping over the side of the vessel at night and swimming boldly to shore; was at once seized by the Spaniards and thrown into the old fort at St. Augustine where he lay for months in a dungeon. The prisoners were brought forth daily and long discussions held as to which horrible mode of death would be most suitable and most blood curdling. Sometimes a few would be tortured while the rest were held in reserve for something more awful. Finally, he escaped and laid for days in the adjacent marshes and at last made his way by rowboat to New Orleans. From there, he went to Charleston, South Carolina. This was an overland journey, taking two years. As he made his way slowly , from tribe to tribe, through unspeakable hardship and danger, John gained a knowledge of Indian language and affairs that was very valuable in later years. Reaching Charleston, he was introduced to Governor Robert Johnson, who, recognizing his superior intelligence and education, made John his private secretary. He was put in charge of all Indian transactions which were numerous. He became a captain in the Colonial Wars and surveyed the road from Charleston to Nashville and built Ft. Loudon, the first Anglo-American settlement in Tennessee." (He surveyed the site for Fort Loudon, I don't believe he actually built it. As an aside, this fort was too far from supply lines and other forts to be safe and three years later, Loudon was the site of a Cherokee siege and massacre of it's inhabitants. The fort has been partially restored and can be seen in Vonore, Tennessee, 29 miles SW of Knoxville. " Colonial Forts of South Carolina " Ivers p57)
The date of this adventure is a little hard to place. He gives his deposition on the conditions in St. Augustine to Judge Allein on October 20, 1727 and I assume that this occurred quickly after John Pearson returned to Charleston. Assuming it did take two years to walk from New Orleans to Charleston, and his trip to New Orleans took some months and his imprisonment was for several months, it must have occurred in 1724 1725. Searching the Spanish records (the Stetson Collection, St. Augustine Historical Society) , I find the following:
2 Nov 1725
From: Governor. D. Antonio de Bentivides, St Augustine
To: Crown
Tells of the arrival of seven Negro slaves from Carolina. The commission that went to Carolina to investigate the boundary line offered to compensate the owners of the slaves. However the English refused stating that the slaves were worth more than the Spaniards had offered and they were surprised at the position the Spaniards had taken from which very bad consequences could follow. He asks for instruction as to what to do when slaves escape to the Spaniards. He reminds Crown of the precedent set ion 1693 by purchase of Carolina slaves, asks for orders.
John Pearson in his deposition states that there were some escaped Carolina slaves present and the fact that Governor Antonio reminds the Crown of the last time this happened was 1693 suggests that this was an unusual occurrence. Circumstances point to John Pearson being captured in 1725, while the slaves were in St Augustine.
John moved to Richland County in 1741 or 1742 where he married Mary RAIFORD in 1742. They had the first white child born in the county, John II, born in 1743. He built his plantation, "Windsor Forest" near the Raifords. Here he spent most of his remaining years although he did own a place in Fairfield in which Mary lived after his death.
John was a Captain in Col. Pawley's regiment, " In the Congaree Forks Company" in 1757. He commanded a lieutenant, an ensign, 125 privates, 8 "alarm men " and 40 slaves.
In later life, John became very interested in the religious revival undergone by the Baptists and joined the church in 1764. He was a charter member of the Congaree Baptist Church.(Reference: History of Richland Co. S.C. by Green, p53)
Also from Historical Collections of The Joseph Habersham Chapter of the DAR, Vol. 1, page 131-2 is the following: " A curious antidote illustrating the manners of the time furnishes the closing chapter in this unique career. It seems that on one of his expeditions to the up-country, Capt. Pearson was presented by a hunter with a magnificent pair of antlers, which he at once sent to Governor Johnson, to whom he was greatly attached. But alas! The governor's lady was very gay and fond of attention from others than her lord, and the executive, recalling the affair in the "Merry Wives of Windsor", became morally offended at what he considered an insult, though such was not intended. Captain Pearson was dismissed from his service and retired, deeply chagrined, to his estates in Fairfield, where he spent his last days..."
Pearson's Fort - A private frontier fort built on land owned by John Pearson during the Cherokee War of 1760-61. The location was on the west side of the Broad River, twelve miles NW of present Columbia." Colonial Forts of South Carolina " by Larry E. Ivers, p. 66. Also see the letter from Pearson in the scrapbook.
There is an Alexander Pearson who was a ship's captain for Laurens in 1747 ( the ANN ) and another ship ( the PATIENCE ) was also in the fleet, suggesting some kinship with the family. Papers of Henry Laurens Vol 1 page ?.
There is an interesting letter in the scrapbook entitled "Indian war" from John Pearson to the Governor's secretary describing the precarious position that these early settlers were in.
He gives a deposition October 20, 1727 before Chief Justice Richard Allein regarding military conditions in St. Augustine a few weeks before in the privateer commanded by Signior Antonio. He says nothing further about himself. British Public Records of South Carolina (Ms., Vol. 19 pages 127-129)
He is mentioned in "History of North Carolina" by Wheeler. (Tuck Wilson)

The first group of settlers in what is now Richland County, South Carolina settled on Mill Creek [previously called Raiford's Creek] below the Bluff Road. George HAIG, as deputy surveyor, certified a tract of land containing 450 acres on January 6, 1741, for Philip RAIFORD; and three days later, for the same person, a tract of 300 acres adjoining the first. According to Green in his book, A HISTORY OF RICHLAND COUNTY, on page 27, the creek that ran through Philip's property was called Raiford's Creek up until the American Revolution; afterwards it became known as Mill Creek, because William HAY had built a mill on it shortly before 1750. John PEARSON arrived shortly after Philip RAIFORD and married Philip's daughter, Mary. Their son, John, Jr. born May 30, 1743, was possibly the first white child born within the limits of Richland County.

PEARSON, John - On April 25, 1742, John PEARSON married Mary RAIFORD, the daughter of Philip RAIFORD (II). In 1757, John, served in the Craven County Regiment as a captain in company known as "the Congaree Forks". John and Mary's children are:
1. John PEARSON born May 30, 1743, died October 25, 1819 and married his cousin, Sarah RAIFORD, on May 21, 1765. Sarah was born on August 25, 1745.
2. Philip PEARSON born June 7, 1746, died September 13, 1835, was married to Mary BUTLER who died on September 14, 1854 at the age of 89.
3. Mary Ann PEARSON married Thomas BOND on October 16, 1764.
4. Martha PEARSON born November 7, 1754, died around 1796, was married to John COOK who died around 1800.
5. Rachel PEARSON married Henry HANCOCK.
6. William PEARSON

"The Expansion of South Carolina 1729-1765" by Robert L. Meriwether, p. 59-60, tells the beginnings of the relationships between the Raiford, Pearson, and Howell families into which descendants of William O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia married. James (O')DANIEL arrived here in the mid 1750s:
"Immediately below the shoals, the east bank of the Congaree widened out into a poorly drained bottom which is now regularly overflowed by the river. Two miles below the mouth of Jacksons Creek, later known as Gill Creek, and about four miles from the site of the Congaree garrison. Green Hill rose above high water, and the river bank for a short distance invited settlement. Here Philip JACKSON had two hundred and fifty acres surveyed in 1740; and on "Green Hill Path", which Haig traced upon the plat, he later built his house. Other plats were run out on the river bank in the early 'forties, despite the danger of high water. One four hundred acre stretch, crisscrossed by water courses, was surveyed in 1741 for Elihu BAKER, a resident on Ashley River ; it was bought by George HAIG, and on the plat appears a sketch, perhaps more of a prophecy than an achievement, of a "Rice Field". But the most desirable land in this district lay two miles east on the edge of the lowland. Here for several miles a level terrace of silt loam, fertile and easily cultivated, parallels the river. Raifords Creek, the present Mill Creek, enters this narrow strip about two miles below Gill Creek; it then begins an amazing series of turns and three miles farther, having traversed many times that distance, reaches the river bottom." In 1740 Richard JACKSON had four hundred acres surveyed at the head of this stretch, but his name was given to the stream farther north ; his headrights probably represented several slaves, for he had seven when he died in 1750. At the other end of the terrace, four miles away, Philip RAIFORD in 1742 and 1743 had two tracts surveyed and later acquired two others nearby, the total amounting to nearly thirteen hundred acres. John PEARSON, who was in Amelia Township in 1737, in 1742 married RAIFORD's daughter Mary, and bought a warrant for three hundred acres near the tract of his father-in-law. He proceeded to clear and cultivate the land, built a house and barn, and made his home there. The purchase of the warrant, however, merely extinguished the claim of the original applicant; the legal title he secured later on his own rights of three children and three slaves. On Haig's death PEARSON turned to surveying and became the most active of these enterprising developers of the back country. Following his business he moved up to Broad River about 1755, but after his bankruptcy in 1766 returned to the Congaree.
John FAIRCHILD, PEARSON's chief rival as surveyor, was evidently from the coast country. He had four tracts, eight hundred acres, surveyed on or near Raifords Creek between 1741 and 1745 and for a time lived there. By 1742 William HOWELL and, within a few years, Thomas and Arthur HOWELL had acquired tracts of land adjoining each other on the creek between PEARSON and RAIFORD. Thomas HOWELL's plat, like those of several of his neighbors, shows his house on the very edge of the high bank of the creek, and from his house to that of William the surveyor traced "an Avenue"."
"The visits of the Reverend Philip Mulkey of Fairforest Creek led to the forming of the Congaree Baptist Church in 1766, with John PEARSON, Isaac RAIFORD and about thirty others, chiefly late arrivals in the community, as the first members. The church was built in the same year on land given by William HOWELL, apparently part of the mill tract he acquired from William HAY." [Ibid, p. 65]
"The most important of the later settlers was the elder John Pearson, formerly of the Congarees, who was captain of the militia company of the Congaree forks in 1757 and appears to have been living then on Broad River. When he became bankrupt in 1766 and his thirteen hundred acres was advertised for sale, his home was on the west side of the river above the mouth of Crims Creek, where a high ridge rises from a narrow bottom and affords a splendid view of the valley. Two other former settlers of Raifords Creek Evan Rees and Philip Raiford, Junior had plats surveyed on the north side of the river ; the latter was living there, near Wilkinsons Creek, in 1755. [Ibid, p. 156-7]
"John Pearson's company "In the Congaree Forks" had 134 whites and 40 slaves; the company of James "Lassley" (Leslie see above, p. 148) on Broad River had 76 whites and 9 slaves; and that of Fink (whose first name is not given) on the south side of the Saluda, 40 whites." [Ibid, p. 156]
"On the east side of the Broad a handful of settlers from Pennsylvania, among them Thomas Owen, Jacob Canomore and Lawrence Free, joined by Richard Gregory, from the Wateree valley, with his father and brother, made the nucleus of two small Seventh-Day Baptist congregations of uncertain history and identity, organized probably about the same time. John Pearson, in the absence of an ordained minister, served both churches in the capacity of exhorter or lay preacher. Two letters of Pearson written in 1764 reveal his intense religious interest and activity. In his household he held prayers morning and evening, and on the fifth of May he announced "A Great Meeting" to be held on the next Friday, Saturday and Sunday to which he invited his Raifords Creek kin." [Ibid, p. 157]
Listed among the 28 forts established to protect settlers during the Cherokee War in the early 1760s are:
21. Pearson's (John), apparently on his own land on Broad River (Indian
Books, VI, 218; above, pp. 156-157).
23. Raiford's (Philip), Little River, Broad River (Indian Books, VI, 225;
Robert Mills, Statistics of South Carolina Charleston, 1826 p. 555).
[Ibid, p. 235]


General Notes: Wife - Mary RAIFORD

Mary RAIFORD was the daughter of Philip RAIFORD II and Martha WESTON. The RAIFORD family were supposed to have moved to Edgecombe County, North Carolina by 1710 and lived there until 1740. Mary RAIFORD is likely to have been born there.

Mary grew up in North Carolina and moved to Richland County with her parents in 1741. They had the first land in the county surveyed and were in the group of the first permanent settlers. Within about a year, she married another early settler, John PEARSON, an English mariner who was about 50 years old, if his birthday is correct. (He is old as he was a grown man when he was captured by the Spanish about 1725 but he might not be that old.)

They had five children born from 1743 to 1754. She outlived her husband by 29 years and is buried at her son's place in Fairfield District, "Bunker Hill". She is listed along with her son Philip PEARSON as providing supplies to Col. WASHINGTON and Col. MYDDLETON in June and August of 1781.

PEARSON, Mary is named in 1790 Census, Camden District, Fairfield County, South Carolina, page 20, as head of household with 2 males under 16, 3 females, and 4 slaves. [Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 157]

General Notes: Wife - Martha Ann PEARSON

Martha FERNEY m John PEARSON, c. 1794, SC Posted by: Ann Reese Spencer (/cgi-genforum/email.cgi?823345183) Date: January 10, 2000: "Does anyone out there agree with this marriage? DAR has first wife of John PEARSON, born 1770, as Sarah HILL, however Edrington's History of Fairfield Co. SC says John PEARSON married 1. Nancy TURNEY (which I think is a misprint, and should be FERNEY. She was Ederington's cousin (he says) The only child of record for John PEARSON and Sara HILL was Moses Hill PEARSON, b. (c) 1822. John PEARSON also had a daughter, Judith, b. 17 Feb 1818, who married Arnold JOLLY. I believe she may have been born to Sarah Hill PEARSON also. I have been trying for years to straighten out this confusion of the wives, my ancestor is Martha Ann PEARSON b. about 1800 and married to James RUSH. I believe she is John PEARSON's daughter by Martha (Nancy) FERNEY. Any help out there, or comments?" (http://genforum.genealogy.com/ferney/messages/1.html)

Writing about John WOODWARD, "I knew his son, Major John J. WOODWARD, who married Rebecca, daughter of P. E. PEARSON, a lawyer of Winnsboro. They moved to Alabama, near Talladega. I visited Major WOODWARD in Talladega in 1856. He was then engaged in the practice of law and was solicitor. He afterwards became judge of the circuit in which he lived. He was killed in the late war while in command of his regiment, the 10th Alabama. He was brave, generous, affable, and altogether the old type of a Carolina gentleman, He is buried at the Presbyterian Church, Winnsboro." (History of Fairfield County, p. 78)

General Notes: Husband - Capt. Samuel STANLEY, RS-VA

"Samuel STANLEY enlisted in the Revolutionary War at Chesterfield Court House 18 Sept 1880 (typo, 1780. RLD) - enlisted for one year and six months at that time living in Albermarle County, Virginia - was born in London, England 'See certified Size Roll of Troops in manuscript in Virginia State Library known as Chesterfield Supplement'
Samuel STANLEY was head of a household of seven-inclusive in Hanover County, Virginia. See Census taken between 1782-1785-First Census of illegible, see page 28.
Samuel Stanley had 750 acres of land granted to him on Edisto Island Charleston County - on June 5, 1786, was head of a family in Cheraw Co. 1790, himself and three daughters." (Aunt Belle's Journal, Marian Stanley)
"I will give the following on other Stanley lines in early S.C. In old Cheraw Dist. there was a Revolutionary soldier named Moses STANLEY, and he is listed as Pvt. in Greggs History of Old Cheraw. We know nothing more about him. However, in 1790 U.S. Census of Cheraw 35 Dist., S.C., is listed Capt. Samuel STANLEY born in Va. (New Kent County, I think) and was Capt. in Rev. War in Va., moved thence to Cheraw and then to Columbia, S.C. He died there about 1813 and his wife was a Miss HENDRICKS, daughter. of Capt. William HENDRICKS a Rev. soldier from Cheraw. They had two sons, Robert Hendricks STANLEY and William Byrd STANLEY, and a dau. who m. Henry McGOWAN, dau. Elizabeth m. TRAPP, and dau. Mary who married 4 times, first to Wm. HOWELL; 2nd to Dr. Robert HENDRICKS; 3rd to _____WILLIAMSON, and fourth William HILLEGUS of Charleston. In 1850 this lady filed an affidavit that she was the niece of my g.g.grandfather Capt. Robert PASLAY, Rev. soldier, and that she at that time living in Cheraw district S.C. This affidavit in Washington, D.C., in Capt. Robert PASLAY Revolutionary File R. 7988. In 1790 Capt. Robert PASLAY 2ndly married Elizabeth CROCKER. His first wife was Sarah (which I take to be HENDRICKS, being his niece makes me say that) I come from the 2nd wife Elizabeth CROCKER.
Robert Hendricks STANLEY and another son William Byrd STANLEY, who was long time Mayor of Columbia, S.C., about the time of the Civil War. This family long ran the Stanley China shop in Columbia, S.C., and they are buried in the Stanley Family graveyard in Columbia, S.C. In Vol. 4: Wallace 'Hist. Of South Carolina' there is a Genealogy of this family.
There was an early methodist of S.C., Rev. LEDBETTER also. They are found in History of Methodism in S.C., by Betts.

General Notes: Wife - Catherine Emma PERRYMAN

Catherine Emma PERRYMAN was a daughter of Alexander Doniphan PERRYMAN and Martha A. MARSH. Catherine and Emma are named as separate children by some researchers; however, the census ages of the girls in various censuses, never in the same household or same census, the 1850 entry as "Catherine E." and her being named Catherine WOOLDRIDGE (sic) 1910 and as Emma WOOLRIDGE in 1920, as a sister of Viola in both, are proof they are the same person.

General Notes: Wife - Elizabeth Maria PERRYMAN

Elizabeth Marie PERRYMAN, born about 1829 in Alabama, was a daughter of Alexander Doniphan PERRYMAN and his wife, Martha A. MARSH. In the 1830 census of Wilcox County, Alabama, they have a female under 5 in their home. In the 1840 census of Conecuh County, Alabama, Alexander's household has two children listed, a female 10-15, presumably Elizabeth Maria, and a female under 5, known to be Martha A.

Family researchers write that Elizabeth, or Maria, first married a "TALIAFERRS" and second Benjamin Brown SMITH.

In the 1850 census of Conecuh County, "E. M. 21 F AL" is the wife of Dr. Robert H. TALIAFERRO, age 30. No children are listed. Named in their household is Martha A. PERRYMAN, 12, Elizabeth's sister.

In the 1860 census of Clarke County, Mississippi, "E. M. TALIAFERO (sic) 27 F X --- 25,000 AL" is listed in Alexander and Martha's home, ostensibly a widowed daughter, without children, but with an estate. At age 27, E. M. is about 3-4 years younger than Alexander's female under 5 in 1830 and perhaps the reason "Maria" is thought by some to be a separate daughter of Alexander and Martha PERRYMAN.

Eliza and family have not been located in the 1870 census, but "Eliza W F 48 Wife M Keeping house AL SC SC" is the wife of Benjamin B. SMITH in the 1880 census of Lauderdale County, Mississippi. Her age, state of birth, and parents' states of birth correspond with her being a daughter of Alexander and Martha PERRYMAN, and confirms her name as Elizabeth. Eliza and Benjamin have four children, Katie, the oldest, 16, suggesting she married Benjamin about 1862.

Eliza, widowed, resides in the home of her daughter, Katherine Emma BOYKIN in the 1900 through 1920 censuses of Lauderdale County, Mississippi.

Eliza Perryman SMITH died in 1928 at about 98 years of age. She is buried in Section 6, Rose Hill Cemetery, Meridian, Lauderdale County, Mississippi. A picture of her grave marker is on Find A Grave Memorial# 22330248 created by Michelle Woodham on Oct 21, 2007:

The memorial lists her birth on Sep. 4, 1829 in Wilcox County, Alabama, and her death on Mar. 23, 1926 in Vicksburg, Warren County, Mississippi. It also links to her husband, Benjamin Brown SMITH (1816 - 1882), and provides that Eliza was the daughter of Alexander Doniphan PERRYMAN & Martha A. MARSH. 18

General Notes: Husband - Samuel R. PERRYMAN

Samuel R. PERRYMAN is first found as "S. R." age 9, born in Alabama, in the home of his parents Alexander Doniphan Martha A. Marsh PERRYMAN and in the 1860 census of Clarke County, Mississippi. He is erroneously listed as female. This census indicates he was born about 1850, but in the 1900 census his birth wass in August 1855.

Ostensibly, Samuel was named for his deceased uncle, Samuel PERRYMAN who was born on 17 Feb 1797 in Edgefield District, South Carolina and died on 17 Jun 1838 in Abbeville County, South Carolina at age 41.

In 1870, Samuel is head of household in Clarke County, Mississippi, apparently providing support for his widowed mother and three sisters. The value of his estate at age "19" may be inheritance from his father.

Samuel remained single until 27 years old according to the 1930 census. Born about 1853, the conclusion is he married soon after the 1880 census. His wife's surname has not been found; however, Johnson Bland Mobley, Jr., in his book, states that "Samuel PERRYMAN married Elizabeth P. _______. They had two sons." Who are they and where are they in 1900 and 1910?

SPECULATION: In 1900, Sam is a widower, without accompanying family, in Harris County, Texas. In 1910, he, 56, widower, and Julia PERRYMAN, 21, single, born in Mississippi, are roomers in the same boarding house. Their relationship is not known, but a Julia PERRYMAN, age 11, niece, lives in the home of her 64 year old aunt, Celine RIGGS, in the 1900 census of Perry County, Mississippi, perhaps Sam's daughter after her mother died? Also in Perry County in 1900 is a Mattie PERRYMAN, 15, adopted daughter, living in the home of Hugh McCOMB, 44, and his mother, M. J. McCOMB, 64, posing another possibility?

General Notes: Wife - Elizabeth P. UNKNOWN

Elizabeth P. is said to be the wife of Samuel R. PERRYMAN. According to census information, Sam is single in the 1880 census, living with a cousin in Liberty County, Texas. In 1900, Sam is listed as widowed, living in a boarding house in Harris County, Texas. Presumably then, Sam and Elizabeth were married soon after the 1880 census and Elizabeth died before 1900.

General Notes: Husband - Dr. John Montague RAIFORD

John M. [Montague] RAIFORD is named as one of the early settlers of Glennville, Russell County, Alabama in The Alabama Review, October 1958, in an article by Peter A. Brannon. In it his home is referred to as "the former Dr. RAIFORD place... now occupied... by a member of the COMER family.."

Rootsweb postings name him as John Montague RAIFORD, born 1803 in Abbeville, South Carolina, son of William RAIFORD, born 1777 in Abbeville, South Carolina, and Susannah Custis MONTAGUE, born 21 March 1781 in Powhatan, Virginia. This William RAIFORD's parents are not yet discovered. The known William RAIFORDs associated with the line from Philip RAIFORD of Camden County, later Fairfield, South Carolina were not born in 1777. William may be a brother of Philip Ephraim RAIFORD V, born 1765 in Edgefield County, South Carolina.

John is said to have married Emma TINSLEY, no marriage date given. According to one person the marriage ended in divorce. John is said to have also married in 1835 Martha Jane PERSONS, b: 2 Jul 1818 in Warren County, Georgia.

Is this Dr. John Montague RAIFORD, b. 1803:
J. M. RAIFORD is named in the 1840 census of Barbour County, Alabama, with 1 male 20-30, 1 male 30-40; 1 female 20-30. He is listed 11 names from Julius C. B. and Catherine MITCHELL and 14 from James Levi Daniell. Catherine and James are cousins to the family of Phillip Ephraim and Elizabeth Daniel RAIFORD. A William DANIEL, 20-30, living alone, is listed 7 names on the other side. [Series: M704 Roll: 1 Page: 65]

He is likely the "Old Dr. RAIFORD" mentioned in a letter dated Jan. 30 1858 to "My dear Cousin" [identified as Sarah Geraldine JOURDAN, widow of Patrick Henry MITCHELL] and signed by "Pet" [not yet identified]. Describing an event in Glennville, Alabama, she wrote: "Old Dr. RAIFORD was there in his prime, flying around the girls and widows." Dr. RAIFORD would have been in his mid to late 50s in 1858. The original of this letter is in the possession of David Leon "Tuck" Wilson, III, transcribed in his privately published work "Letters from The Past."

In 1860, John RAIFORD is a wealthy man but has no one else in his household.
