General Notes: Husband - Arthur Irwin BUTTS

Arthur Irwin BUTTS was born in Jerusalem, Southampton County, Virginia on 3 February 1808, the year that his parent moved to Hancock County, Georgia.

Arthur BUTTS is named in the 6 February 1835 Will of his grandfather, Capt. James BUTTS: "I give and bequeath to my grandchildren Katharine Simmons, Kesiah Butts, Arthur Butts, Mary Butts and Edmund Butts, children of my son Simmons Butts one negro girl each to be worth one hundred and ten dollars in making this estimation I expect my executors to give them such girl children as are weaned from their mothers say to be one year old at least."

"ARTHUR IRWIN BUTTS. born in Southampton, Virginia in 1808, and who later moved to Hancock County, Georgia with his parents that same year, removed to Barbour County Alabama in 1835.
He makes the statement in an autobiography dated Milledgeville, January 1899, that he was an overseer for the family of William Cook Daniel and on Christmas Day, 1835 they were camping out in the woods of Barbour county, "where there were no houses, and among the Indians." This campsite was one mile south of a proposed settlement, which at that date consisted of "one unfinished pole house without a cover." He states that this was built by "Uncle James E. Glenn, a Methodist preacher for whom the town (which began with this pole house) was named." His recollections further indicate that when they moved out of Georgia, crossed the Chattahoochee River and arrived at "Hutchachubbie River" (Now Hatchechubee Creek), they found Mr. Glenn, Ben Brown, and Major William Flournoy, "the only white people living South of the River." (Old Glennville: An Early Center of East Alabama Culture, Peter A. Brannon in The Alabama Review, October 1958, p. 255)

Was James Levi DANIELL also part of the "they" who found Mr. Glenn, Ben Brown, and Major William Flournoy? It seems so from the following found on page 256: "... it is recounted that those early settlers, James Daniel among them, at the Glennvile site within a few months after coming into the Indian country, rushed away leaving their possessions at the mercy of the Indians, to Columbus and Roanoke, Georgia, when they escaped from the uprising popularly referred to as the 'Indian War of 1836. Major Flournoy was the first white man killed by the Indians in the uprising. ... The Daniel family and other friends escaped across the Chattahoochee to Roanoke, where they left their horses and Negroes and such goods as they could get out with, only to have them all burned when the Indians later attacked that place.'"

There are several questions derived from the above:
Who was William Cook DANIEL? John William DANIEL, the son of John "Jack" DANIEL and Martha Pearson COOK, whose son James Levi DANIELL (by her first marriage to Levi DANIELL) also came to Barbour County, in 1835?
James Levi was Arthur Irwin's uncle by virtue of his marriage to Elizabeth Clements BUTTS (Arthur's half-aunt).

From the Autobiographical papers of A. I. BUTTS as printed in History stories of Milledgeville and Baldwin County, by Leola Selman Beeson, Macon, Ga.: J. W. Burke Co., 1943, page 164: "During the War between the States, Henry P. GRAY and Arthur I. BUTTS formed a company to manufacture card backs for the State, making a contact to furnish all the backs that they could deliver at one dollar each. They completed three hundred per day, receiving Confederate and State currency in payment. This work shop and mill was run until burned by the Yankees, November 1864. They also burned BUTT's gin-house, barn and stable and carried away his horses and mules.

In 1865, he received the trunks which were sent by State Treasurer Jack JONES, containing valuable papers from the archives of the State. Captain JONES sent them secretly by "Rough" WILLIAMS and Jim SHERLOCK, who came at night. Captain JONES wrote him a note telling him if he (JONES) wrote a note to him wanting a bill of lumber, he must move the trunks to some other place. JONES was arrested by the Yankees and kept a prisoner awhile in order that the papers might be obtained by the enemy,but BUTTS kept them until Governor JENKINS was in office after the surrender."

OLD MEN IN BALDWIN
A Talk With a Man Who Escaped from the Flood - Milledgeville of Old.
From the Milledgeville, Ga., Union
Meeting Mr. Butts, we said, "We have been interviewing old men and asking their recollections of old times. You are probably the oldest man in town?
Mr. Butts - I am eighty-five years old. I know of no older man in the place.
Reporter. - Where were you born and when did you come to Milledgeville?
Mr. B. - I was born in Southampton county Va. My father moved to Hancock county when I was four of five years of age, and I came to Milledgeville in 1840. I was, at that time, in my 43d year.
Reporter - Tell us something of the town and people of that time?
Mr. B. - When I first came here I boarded with Mrs. Godwin at the Washington hall and afterwards at Lafayette hall. At that time there were six or seven good hotels in the city. There was no railroad. All travel was by stage or private conveyance. All the hotels had large stables attached, for they had as many horses to take care of as men. The members of the legislature came here in gigs, and usually engaged board for their horses for the session. In those days I saw many more pleasure vehicles on the streets than I see now. In fact Milledgeville was a much gayer town then than now. A great many changes have taken place since I came here. Fires have swept out of existence the business portion of the city, two or three times - the old Washington hall, Masonic hall and McComb's hotel alone remaining. Dr. Blake occupied the part of the building front on Wayne street with a little vine-clad piazza. Across Wayne street the O'Briens the kept brilliant drinking saloons, in low wooden buildings on the site now occupied by Newt. Callaway and west of him. Those buildings became dilapidated in the course of time, and the fire that swept them away in 1865, was considered a god-send to the town. Dr. Blake was an educated Scotchman, and came to this country, owing, it was said, to domestic infelicity, caused by marrying a rich wife. He was physician, preacher, poet and wit; also a great hunter and fisherman.
Note. Mr. Butts is Arthur I. Butts

NOTE: All indications are that Arthur I. BUTTS was born in 1808, he was 75 in 1883 and may have added a few years to his age during the interview. RLD)

July 16, 1878 Atlanta Constitution The Man Who Saved the Treasury. Milledgeville Old Captial.
We had a pleasant call from Mr. A. I. Butts, of this county, on Monday, the honest old yeoman in whose care Treasurer Jack Jones left the books, money and accounts of the state when the federals seized the government in '65. Mr. Butts is a resident of this county and lives nine miles from the city, east. Treasurer Jones' clerk, Capt. Williams, and an assistant drove out of the city in the dark, in a two horse wagon laden with these important state papers and money, and on consultation it was determined to leave them with Arthur I. Butts, a man noted fro his Spartan firmness and sterling honesty. The part arrived at Mr. Butts' farm house just before the dawn, awoke him and stated their mission. He accepted the charge, and with the help of his good wife and the refugees, these valuable state papers were soon locked in a dairy, where they remained until Treasurer Angier was installed in office. Mr. Butts is a hale, hearty man, seventy years of age, and is proud yet of the part he acted in flanking Ruger's march on the state treasury.

February 4, 1903 Atlanta Constitution - HIS NINETY-FIFTH BIRTHDAY - Arthur Butts, of Milledgeville, Born in 1808, Celebrates - Milledgeville, Ga., February 3 (Special) Arthur I. Butts, the oldest and one of the most highly respected citizens of this city, celebrated his ninety-fifth birthday today. Mr. Butts was born in South Hampton county, Virginia, on Febuary 3, 1808. His parents soon afterwards moved to Hancock county, and when a youth of only 9 years of age, he came to this city on horseback twice a week to secure copies of The Georgia, a paper then published here, to distribute through portions of Hancock and Baldwin counties. He paid one visit to his old home in Virginia in 1827. He went on horseback and he was fifteen days getting there. Mr Butts moved to this city in 1847 and has never left the state of Georgia since. He has lived under all the administrations since Jefferson, and he talks interestingly of those days. While feeble and somewhat infirm, he has a bright, clear mind, cheerful and happy disposition and is enjoying good heath. His life has been a blessing to all who know him, and he can spent his latter days in the assurance that he has made the world better for having lived in it.

MR. ARTHUR BUTTS DEAD After a Life of Nearly Ninety-Six Years This Venerable Citizen Passes Away
"Uncle Arthur Butts is dead." This sad announcement which spread over the city last Sunday morning caused a felling of profound sorrow among a people who loved and respected this venerable man, who had for so many years lived in their midst.
It was known for several days that Mr. Butts was nearing the end of his long life, for he had been confined to his bed about two weeks. Loved ones and friends watched his life slowly ebb away, and did everything in their power to make his last days the happiest and brightest. Quietly and peacefully he passed away about ten o'clock Friday night, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mollie Butts.
The funeral services were held at the residence Sunday morning. Rev. M. L. Underwood, pastor of the Methodist church of which Mr. Butts was a member, paid a touching tribute to Mr. Butts' memory in a few simple, but touching words. His long life had been a benediction to all who knew him, for he had followed in the footsteps of his Master; he possessed a strong faith in the Christian religion. His presence at divine services had always been an inspiration and help to the minister, and often in conversation he had found that the deceased had a wonderful insight into the principles underlying Christianity.
The floral offerings placed upon the casket were beautiful and gave expression, to some extent, of the tender love which was felt for the deceased.

The remains were taken in charge by the members of the Masonic Fraternity in this city, Mr. Butts having for many years been a member of Island Creek Lodge, and accompanied them to his old plantation home about six miles from the city. The burial ground was reached by the Georgia railroad train.

Mr. Arthur Irwin Butts was born in South Hampton, Va., February 3rd, 1808. His parents moved to Georgia the same year and settled in Hancock County, which was the home of his grandfather as early as 1801. His grandfather, James Butts, was given a commission during the Revolutionary War by "Light Horse Harry" Lee, as lieutenant of cavalry in the militia of Virginia.

"His great-grandfather was Thomas Butts, one of the original settlers of Jamestown, Va." His maternal grandfather, Spratley Simmons, fought under Washington and Greene at Gilford, Germantown and Brandywine and other great battles of the war. A recountal of his experiences was the delight of his grandson.
His father, Simmons Butts, served in the war of 1812 as a captain under Gen. Jett Thomas and Col. Ignatius A. Few. His two uncles, Captains Samuel and Lewis Butts, fought under General Floyd, and Samuel Butts, for whom, Butts county is named, died after the fight at Chalibee, January 27, 1813.
All of Mr. Butts' long and useful life was spent in this section and only twice did he leave the borders of Georgia. Once he went to Alabama, where he lived two or three years, but returned when the Indians of that country were on the war path and another time he went on a visit to his father's relatives in Virginia. He, in his early youth, used to come to the city from his home and carry the mail. In those days the woods were full of Indians and wild beasts.
Milledgeville was a very small village, the town being located to the east of the campus of the G. M. College. Mr. Butts retained his mental powers to the last and it was interesting to hear him talk of the past history of his country.
Mr. Butts represented the county of Baldwin in the legislature in 1855. He was a prominent figure in those days. He believed that the States had a right to secede, but did not believe it politic. He favored the Union and believed that the North would come to terms under the constitution.
He was a man of strong convictions and possessed a wonderful degree of spirit and determination. In early life he gave his heart to God, connected himself with the Methodist church and from that day he was a true and consecrated Christian. He had implicit faith in God's promises, and the Bible was a guide for his life. He was governed and controlled by the highest motives, and would stoop to nothing mean or little. He had the confidence and esteem of his fellowmen and the love of all who knew him.
A great and good man has gone to his reward, after a long life which has been a blessing to the world. --October 13, 1903
Arthur Irwin BUTTS grave is in the Butts Thomas Cemetery, next to that of his wife, Georgia. It records Feb 3, 1808 Oct 9, 1903 Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord. Rev. XIV, 13. (Masonic emblem.) (http://www.friendsofcems.org/Baldwin/)

Children

General Notes: Husband - Arthur Irwin BUTTS

Arthur Irwin BUTTS was born in Jerusalem, Southampton County, Virginia on 3 February 1808, the year that his parent moved to Hancock County, Georgia.

Arthur BUTTS is named in the 6 February 1835 Will of his grandfather, Capt. James BUTTS: "I give and bequeath to my grandchildren Katharine Simmons, Kesiah Butts, Arthur Butts, Mary Butts and Edmund Butts, children of my son Simmons Butts one negro girl each to be worth one hundred and ten dollars in making this estimation I expect my executors to give them such girl children as are weaned from their mothers say to be one year old at least."

"ARTHUR IRWIN BUTTS. born in Southampton, Virginia in 1808, and who later moved to Hancock County, Georgia with his parents that same year, removed to Barbour County Alabama in 1835.
He makes the statement in an autobiography dated Milledgeville, January 1899, that he was an overseer for the family of William Cook Daniel and on Christmas Day, 1835 they were camping out in the woods of Barbour county, "where there were no houses, and among the Indians." This campsite was one mile south of a proposed settlement, which at that date consisted of "one unfinished pole house without a cover." He states that this was built by "Uncle James E. Glenn, a Methodist preacher for whom the town (which began with this pole house) was named." His recollections further indicate that when they moved out of Georgia, crossed the Chattahoochee River and arrived at "Hutchachubbie River" (Now Hatchechubee Creek), they found Mr. Glenn, Ben Brown, and Major William Flournoy, "the only white people living South of the River." (Old Glennville: An Early Center of East Alabama Culture, Peter A. Brannon in The Alabama Review, October 1958, p. 255)

Was James Levi DANIELL also part of the "they" who found Mr. Glenn, Ben Brown, and Major William Flournoy? It seems so from the following found on page 256: "... it is recounted that those early settlers, James Daniel among them, at the Glennvile site within a few months after coming into the Indian country, rushed away leaving their possessions at the mercy of the Indians, to Columbus and Roanoke, Georgia, when they escaped from the uprising popularly referred to as the 'Indian War of 1836. Major Flournoy was the first white man killed by the Indians in the uprising. ... The Daniel family and other friends escaped across the Chattahoochee to Roanoke, where they left their horses and Negroes and such goods as they could get out with, only to have them all burned when the Indians later attacked that place.'"

There are several questions derived from the above:
Who was William Cook DANIEL? John William DANIEL, the son of John "Jack" DANIEL and Martha Pearson COOK, whose son James Levi DANIELL (by her first marriage to Levi DANIELL) also came to Barbour County, in 1835?
James Levi was Arthur Irwin's uncle by virtue of his marriage to Elizabeth Clements BUTTS (Arthur's half-aunt).

OLD MEN IN BALDWIN
A Talk With a Man Who Escaped from the Flood - Milledgeville of Old.
From the Milledgeville, Ga., Union
Meeting Mr. Butts, we said, "We have been interviewing old men and asking their recollections of old times. You are probably the oldest man in town?
Mr. Butts - I am eighty-five years old. I know of no older man in the place.
Reporter. - Where were you born and when did you come to Milledgeville?
Mr. B. - I was born in Southampton county Va. My father moved to Hancock county when I was four of five years of age, and I came to Milledgeville in 1840. I was, at that time, in my 43d year.
Reporter - Tell us something of the town and people of that time?
Mr. B. - When I first came here I boarded with Mrs. Godwin at the Washington hall and afterwards at Lafayette hall. At that time there were six or seven good hotels in the city. There was no railroad. All travel was by stage or private conveyance. All the hotels had large stables attached, for they had as many horses to take care of as men. The members of the legislature came here in gigs, and usually engaged board for their horses for the session. In those days I saw many more pleasure vehicles on the streets than I see now. In fact Milledgeville was a much gayer town then than now. A great many changes have taken place since I came here. Fires have swept out of existence the business portion of the city, two or three times - the old Washington hall, Masonic hall and McComb's hotel alone remaining. Dr. Blake occupied the part of the building front on Wayne street with a little vine-clad piazza. Across Wayne street the O'Briens the kept brilliant drinking saloons, in low wooden buildings on the site now occupied by Newt. Callaway and west of him. Those buildings became dilapidated in the course of time, and the fire that swept them away in 1865, was considered a god-send to the town. Dr. Blake was an educated Scotchman, and came to this country, owing, it was said, to domestic infelicity, caused by marrying a rich wife. He was physician, preacher, poet and wit; also a great hunter and fisherman.

July 16, 1878 Atlanta Constitution The Man Who Saved the Treasury. Milledgeville Old Captial.
We had a pleasant call from Mr. A. I. Butts, of this county, on Monday, the honest old yeoman in whose care Treasurer Jack Jones left the books, money and accounts of the state when the federals seized the government in '65. Mr. Butts is a resident of this county and lives nine miles from the city, east. Treasurer Jones' clerk, Capt. Williams, and an assistant drove out of the city in the dark, in a two horse wagon laden with these important state papers and money, and on consultation it was determined to leave them with Arthur I. Butts, a man noted fro his Spartan firmness and sterling honesty. The part arrived at Mr. Butts' farm house just before the dawn, awoke him and stated their mission. He accepted the charge, and with the help of his good wife and the refugees, these valuable state papers were soon locked in a dairy, where they remained until Treasurer Angier was installed in office. Mr. Butts is a hale, hearty man, seventy years of age, and is proud yet of the part he acted in flanking Ruger's march on the state treasury.

February 4, 1903 Atlanta Constitution - HIS NINETY-FIFTH BIRTHDAY - Arthur Butts, of Milledgeville, Born in 1808, Celebrates - Milledgeville, Ga., February 3 (Special) Arthur I. Butts, the oldest and one of the most highly respected citizens of this city, celebrated his ninety-fifth birthday today. Mr. Butts was born in South Hampton county, Virginia, on Febuary 3, 1808. His parents soon afterwards moved to Hancock county, and when a youth of only 9 years of age, he came to this city on horseback twice a week to secure copies of The Georgia, a paper then published here, to distribute through portions of Hancock and Baldwin counties. He paid one visit to his old home in Virginia in 1827. He went on horseback and he was fifteen days getting there. Mr Butts moved to this city in 1847 and has never left the state of Georgia since. He has lived under all the administrations since Jefferson, and he talks interestingly of those days. While feeble and somewhat infirm, he has a bright, clear mind, cheerful and happy disposition and is enjoying good heath. His life has been a blessing to all who know him, and he can spent his latter days in the assurance that he has made the world better for having lived in it.

MR. ARTHUR BUTTS DEAD After a Life of Nearly Ninety-Six Years This Venerable Citizen Passes Away
"Uncle Arthur Butts is dead." This sad announcement which spread over the city last Sunday morning caused a felling of profound sorrow among a people who loved and respected this venerable man, who had for so many years lived in their midst.
It was known for several days that Mr. Butts was nearing the end of his long life, for he had been confined to his bed about two weeks. Loved ones and friends watched his life slowly ebb away, and did everything in their power to make his last days the happiest and brightest. Quietly and peacefully he passed away about ten o'clock Friday night, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mollie Butts.
The funeral services were held at the residence Sunday morning. Rev. M. L. Underwood, pastor of the Methodist church of which Mr. Butts was a member, paid a touching tribute to Mr. Butts' memory in a few simple, but touching words. His long life had been a benediction to all who knew him, for he had followed in the footsteps of his Master; he possessed a strong faith in the Christian religion. His presence at divine services had always been an inspiration and help to the minister, and often in conversation he had found that the deceased had a wonderful insight into the principles underlying Christianity.
The floral offerings placed upon the casket were beautiful and gave expression, to some extent, of the tender love which was felt for the deceased.

The remains were taken in charge by the members of the Masonic Fraternity in this city, Mr. Butts having for many years been a member of Island Creek Lodge, and accompanied them to his old plantation home about six miles from the city. The burial ground was reached by the Georgia railroad train.

Mr. Arthur Irwin Butts was born in South Hampton, Va., February 3rd, 1808. His parents moved to Georgia the same year and settled in Hancock County, which was the home of his grandfather as early as 1801. His grandfather, James Butts, was given a commission during the Revolutionary War by "Light Horse Harry" Lee, as lieutenant of cavalry in the militia of Virginia.

"His great-grandfather was Thomas Butts, one of the original settlers of Jamestown, Va." His maternal grandfather, Spratley Simmons, fought under Washington and Greene at Gilford, Germantown and Brandywine and other great battles of the war. A recountal of his experiences was the delight of his grandson.
His father, Simmons Butts, served in the war of 1812 as a captain under Gen. Jett Thomas and Col. Ignatius A. Few. His two uncles, Captains Samuel and Lewis Butts, fought under General Floyd, and Samuel Butts, for whom, Butts county is named, died after the fight at Chalibee, January 27, 1813.
All of Mr. Butts' long and useful life was spent in this section and only twice did he leave the borders of Georgia. Once he went to Alabama, where he lived two or three years, but returned when the Indians of that country were on the war path and another time he went on a visit to his father's relatives in Virginia. He, in his early youth, used to come to the city from his home and carry the mail. In those days the woods were full of Indians and wild beasts.
Milledgeville was a very small village, the town being located to the east of the campus of the G. M. College. Mr. Butts retained his mental powers to the last and it was interesting to hear him talk of the past history of his country.
Mr. Butts represented the county of Baldwin in the legislature in 1855. He was a prominent figure in those days. He believed that the States had a right to secede, but did not believe it politic. He favored the Union and believed that the North would come to terms under the constitution.
He was a man of strong convictions and possessed a wonderful degree of spirit and determination. In early life he gave his heart to God, connected himself with the Methodist church and from that day he was a true and consecrated Christian. He had implicit faith in God's promises, and the Bible was a guide for his life. He was governed and controlled by the highest motives, and would stoop to nothing mean or little. He had the confidence and esteem of his fellowmen and the love of all who knew him.
A great and good man has gone to his reward, after a long life which has been a blessing to the world. --October 13, 1903
Arthur Irwin BUTTS grave is in the Butts Thomas Cemetery, next to that of his wife, Georgia. It records Feb 3, 1808 Oct 9, 1903 Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord. Rev. XIV, 13. (Masonic emblem.) (http://www.friendsofcems.org/Baldwin/)

"The first of the prospective marriages of which I wrote you occurred in out city last Thursday, it being the nuptials of Mr. W. E. Payne, of Greenville, Ala., and Miss Kate Batts [sic], of Americus.

[Although "Alabama Deaths, 1908-1974," at familysearch.org lists Kate Mitchell Payne's parents as David Butts and Kate Daniels. This is in error, disproved by numerous other records including censuses. David Butts was Kate's older brother. Catherine eleanor Daniell was her mother. The error I believe was caused by misinformation given by the informant for the death certificate. Robert Louis Daniell]

General Notes: Husband - Charles SIMMONS

Charles SIMMONS and wife Eleanor are named in the 24 April 1753 agreement between five children of Thomas BUTTS, Eleanor named as one.

Southampton County, Virginia Deed Book 1, 1749 -1753: Pages 90-91: "John BROWN to Charles SIMMONS dated 12 Apr 1750: 220 acres adj. Daniel BUTTS, William SIMMONS Jr, sd. Charles, and Thomas COCKE (patent to sd. JOHN for 370 acres on 1 Jan 1749/50). S: John (signed) BROWN. W: PETER (signed) BUTTS, William (signed) ANDREWS, and William (signed) SIMMONS." [http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/southampton/deeds/deedbk1.txt]

Southampton County, Virginia Deed Book 1, 1749 -1753: Pages 456-458: John EDMUNDS of Surry County to Benjamin COCKE of Prince
George County dated 16 Jan 1753. 125 acres adj. Nottoway River. S: John (signed) EDMUNDS. W: Richard (signed) BAKER, Benjamin (signed) CLEMENTS, and Charles (signed) SIMMONS." [http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/southampton/deeds/deedbk1.txt]


General Notes: Wife - Eleanor Alice BUTTS

An agreement on the division of Thomas BUTTS' estate was recorded on 24 April 1753, apparently between the five living children named as Peter, John, Eleanor, Daniel, and Sarah. Eleanor, not previously known, is the wife of Charles SIMMONS. Eleanor may be "Alice Eleanor" or "Eleanor Alice" BUTTS.

NOTE: Perhaps an error in this transcription? Alice BUTTS was born 16 November 1719 per a transcription of the Family Bible of James BUTTS, son of Thomas and Catherine BUTTS. This date would make her a twin to Frances BUTTS. Alice's name was not found in the St. Peter's Parish Register with her siblings, hence the possibility of "Eleanor Alice."

Southampton County, Virginia Deed Book 1, 1749 -1753: Pages 504-506: "John BUTTS of Brunswick County and Charles SIMMONS and wife Eleanor to Daniel BUTTS and Sarah BUTTS dated 25 Apr 1753. Agreement on the division of Thomas BUTTS of New Kent County. Thomas BUTTS was the father of Peter, John, Eleanor, Daniel, and Sarah, S: Peter (signed) BUTTS, John (signed) BUTTS. W: Benjamin (signed) SIMMONS, Thomas (signed) RICKS, Epphroditus (signed) KILLBEE, and William (signed) SIMMONS." [http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/southampton/deeds/deedbk1.txt]

Thomas J. Jones, M.D. a physician with a large and remunerative practice in the western part of Hancock county, post office Devereaux, is a man who morally, religiously and socially commands the highest respect of a numerous clientage of friends. He comes of old Virginia stock, his father, Henly Jones, having come to Warren county, Ga., from that state early in the present century. He had married in Virginia Miss Mary Baker, who bore him fourteen children of all whom are now deceased but the doctor. Three of them physicians, one a school teacher, and the rest farmers. Dr. Jones was born June 3, 1829. He received an ordinary academic education and began the study of his profession under the preceptorship of Dr. B. H. Jones of Sparta. He subsequently went to Macon, where he continued his studies with Dr. W. S. Lightfoot. He then went to Augusta, where he attended a course of lectures at the medical college. The following year he spent at Nashville Medical college, where he was graduated in the spring of 1852. He first located in the neighborhood where he now resides, but two years later removed to southwest Georgia, where he continued the practice till the war, in Weston, Webster Co. From this point he entered the service, but the rigors of an army life proved too great a strain upon him, and after a few months he was discharged. Returning to Hancock county he has since devoted himself assiduously to the amelioration of the 'ills of mankind' and with such a measure of success as has brought him a fair recompense, and a reputation second to none in the county. Dec. 23, 1853, Dr. Jones was joined in wedlock to Miss Elizabeth A. Butts. She is a daughter of James I. Butts, deceased, and of a family which for many years has occupied an honorable position among the worthy yeomanry of the county. Four children came to bless their home; two died in infancy: Thomas C. lived to young manhood. James A., the only living child, is a planter near his parents, and a young man of fine promise. In 1894 he was the candidate of the people's party for the legislature, and received a flattering vote, though not sufficient to elect. Dr. Jones is a Mason of royal arch degree, and a member of the Baptist church.

General Notes: Husband - Rev. James Levi DANIELL, M.G.

Rev. James Levi Daniell was born 11 July 1797 in Hancock County, Georgia. He was the only son of Levi DANIELL and Martha Pearson COOK. Levi died at age 41 when James was barely three years old. In his father's will, Levi bequeathed "... To my son James DANIELL 100 acres on Island Creek adj the land lent to my wife and adj. Robert CARR & John RAGAN. Also to James the following Negroes: Will, Rose, Sampson, Aleck, Moses, Bill, Hannah, Milley and Molley. ... All the lands lent to my stepmother Nancy DANIELL by my father's will adj. The lands whereon I now live which falls to me as my Stepmother's decease to be divided among my three children."

On 16 October 1803, when James was six, his mother married second John DANIEL, a cousin of James' father. John, called "Jack,' was a son of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL of Edgefield County, South Carolina, and a nephew of Levi's father James O'DANIEL from Fairfax County, Virginia. James had dropped the "O'" from his surname and spelled it DANIELL.

James and his sisters, Catherine and Julia, were raised in John and Martha's home with his eight younger half-brothers and sisters.

When of age, James (Levi) DANIELL chose his step-father, John DANIEL, to be his guardian. In a Court Order, January 3, 1814, letters of guardianship were granted to "John DANIELL" as guardian over the person and property of "James DANIEL." As a result of James' action, John was also appointed guardian over James' sister Catherine DANIELL as well.

For the year 1814, or a portion thereof, John DANIELL returned an account against James for keeping a "helpless Negro woman & three children" up to the first of January 1815. From this, it seems that the DANIELL family took good care of their Negroes, providing for them even when infirm. James L. became a Minister of the Gospel when he became an adult. His life had to reflect the manner in which his family raised him.

In 1815 the estate of Levi DANIELL was ordered liquidated and apportioned to each of his heirs. Levi's step-mother, Nancy Hardwick Daniel BARROW died in 1814 and the things lent to her for her lifetime reverted to Levi's estate. The Court appointed commissioners to settle the estate with the executors being David B. MITCHELL, Thomas MANGHON, Miles GREENE, John W. DEVEROUX & Frederick FREEMAN.

On 3 December 1818, James Levi married Elizabeth Clements BUTTS, a daughter of Captain James BUTTS, a Revolutionary War soldier from North Carolina, then of Hancock County, Georgia.

In the 1820 census, James and Eliza's family includes a son under 10, Levi Cake, born 27 December 1819. James ha 16 slaves enumerate.d

The Minutes of the Hancock County militia records that in 1821, "James L. DANIELL a private in Capt. James MADDOX's Company being duly returned and called as a delinquent for failing to appear at the Regimental Muster held at Sparta on the 26th day of May last was fined two dollars-$2.00."

James L. DANIELL (DANIEL) appears in various Hancock County Court Minutes. In 1822, he was paid "the sum of two hundred and sixty nine dollars & ninety seven cents...in full for building and keeping in repair for the term of five years...a bridge across Shoulderbone at HARRIS's Mills on the road from Sparta to Greensborough." (Aside: I have seen " the bridge at Shoulderbone and Harris Mill" that James L. maintained for 5 years. Now certainly, the bridge has been rebuilt many times . The spot is one of the prettiest in Georgia, on the old road from Sparta to Greensboro. Tuck Wilson)

On July 5, 1824, James L. DANIEL applied to the Court of Ordinary for letters of administration de bonis non on the estate of James DANIEL, dec'd. William HARDWICK, Jr., executor, gave caveats to the requested letters, citing his being named in the will as executor and the fact that James L. and others had a suit pending against him in equity on account of the estate. The Court dismissed HARDWICK's caveats and issued letters of administration for the estate to James L. DANIEL as requested. HARDWICK'S appeal was permitted upon his posting security. On December 6, 1824, the denied HARDWICK's appeal and confirmed James L. DANIEL as administrator de bonis non of the estate of James DANIEL, dec'd.

As named in the will of his step-father, dec'd, James L. DANIEL became the executor of John DANIEL's estate, nominating George RIVES, Aaron SMITH, John HUBERT, Joseph P. McCULLOH & Thomas W. BURTON as appraisers on November 5, 1827. On James L.'s motion of January 5, 1829, the Court ordered that Joseph P. McCULLOH, George RIVES, Israel PALMER, James SIMMONS & John DREWRY divide and distribute the estate of John DANIEL so far as to lay off to Joseph T. DISMUKES in right of his wife, Mary DANIEL, his legacy or distributive share of the estate.

The Hancock County census of 1830, Series: M19 Roll:18 Page 151, Line 7 shows James L. DANIEL's household: 2 males 0-5 (James and John); 1 male 30-40 (James); 2 females, 0-5 (Catherine and ?); 1 female 5-10 (Martha); 1 female 20-30 (Elizabeth); 3 free Negroes; 38 slaves, 18 male and 20 females. These numbers do not exactly match his known family in 1830. As of 1 June 1830, his family consisted of: James, 32; Elizabeth, 27; Levi, 12; Martha, 7; Catherine, 4; James, 2, John, 3 months. Levi, 12, is not listed and and unknown female, 0-5 is shown. Levi may be one of the two males, 10-15, listed in his grandmother's household, Martha DANIEL, same page, line 21.

Rev. James Levi DANIELL and family moved from Hancock County, Georgia to becoming pioneers, some of the first settlers of Glennville, Barbour County, Alabama. He is so named along with James ALLEN, John ALLEN, John Bowles GLENN, the JACKSON brothers, Virgil BOBO, Tom SANFORD, Major Gerrard DENNARD, Captain Julius MITCHELL, Noah PITTS, Gardner DAVIS, and Gabriel TREUTLEN in the article referenced below. From the autobiography of Arthur Irwin BUTTS, cited in the article, it appears that Arthur, James, and others may have arrived in Barbour County on Christmas Day, 1835. (Arthur was a half-nephew to James Levi's wife, Elizabeth Clements BUTTS.) The move proved to be a potentially disasterous decision. This section of Alabama was an area of tension between the Creek Indians and white settlers, attested to by the Indian uprising there in 1836.

The Alabama Review, October, 1958, presents an account of the DANIEL family's escape from Indians at the start of the "Indian War of 1836." In an article titled "Old Glennville: An Early Center of East Alabama Culture" by Peter A. Brannon starting on page 255, he writes "...those early settlers, James DANIEL among them, at the Glennville site within a few months after coming into the Indian country, rushed away leaving their possessions at the mercy of the Indians, to Columbus and Roanoke, Georgia, when they escaped from the uprising popularly referred to as the "Indian War of 1836." Major FLOURNOY was the first white man killed by the Indians in the uprising. He was escaping from his settlement on the Hatchechubbee Creek, attempting to reach Columbus, when the Indians murdered him. The DANIEL family and other friends escaped across the Chattahoochee to Roanoke, where they left their horses and Negroes and such goods as they could get out with, only to have them all burned when the Indians later attacked that place." He continued later in the article: "My grandfather [Thompson] GLENN built the first house in Glennville....The Indians burnt his first house - he had taken his family to Meriwether county, Ga. in May 1836. He had befriended an old Indian, Estothlee, and who warned him the Indians were going to rise, but he doubted it. After FLOURNOY was killed, Estothlee came again, so Grandfather sent a messenger to warn the other settlers, so they escaped. He with his family crossed the river at Roanoke on Friday afternoon and the Indians captured the town Sunday morning." Near closing, he continued: "Nobody in Glennville was killed by Indians. Estothlee's warning saved a number of settlers. [William] FLOURNOY was killed not far from Villula on Wednesday before the first day of May."

Had Thompson GLENN not befriended the old Creek Indian Estothlee who warned of the coming attacks and James Levi and family not escaped the Creek Indian uprising, he and and his sons would have been the last direct male descendants of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia.

From the Columbus Enquirer 13 May 1836:
Creek War and massacre--the editor writes "These misguided Indians have-at length-commenced the work of death, which has so long been apprehended by our settlers in the new counties of Ala." Naming, William Flournoy, Hammond McKissne, wife and overseer, Davis, Hobbs, several negroes, and in all probability many others, (we fear Dr. Wellborn among them) have been killed...."

After the Indian War, two land grants are recorded in Russell County for James DANIEL: one for 38.735 acres to Patentee: JAMES DANIEL on 5 April 1837: Document Nr.: 2011; Land Office: Montgomery; Accession/Serial Nr.: AL1360__.414; Mineral Reservations: No, Authority: April 24, 1820: Sale - Cash Entry (3 Stat. 566); Township 17-N, Range 29-E, Meridian St Stephens, and a second for 81.58 acres to Patentee: JAMES DANIEL on 10 December 1841: Document Nr.: 7706; Land Office: Montgomery; Accession/Serial Nr.: AL4330__.162; Mineral Reservations: No; Authority: April 24, 1820: Sale - Cash Entry (3 Stat. 566); Township 13-N, Range 29-E, Meridian St Stephens. In probate papers of James' estate, this land was in then in Barbour County.

James filed a claim against the U.S. Government for Indian depredation to his property between 1836 and 1838. The original claim was apparently not paid, because on 3 May 1891, James' grandson, Samuel C. DANIEL, Jr. filed to become administrator of James Levi's long running estate probate, the value of which at that time was about $5000, "mostly the value of the original claim." The result of Samuel's pursuit of the claim was not found.

An entry in the Macon Georgia Telegraph, Dec. 12, 1843, page 2, supports the above claim. Under Georgia Legislature, House of Representatives: "Mr Hillhouse: (from the select committee) A bill to compensate J. L. DANIELL for property destroyed by Indians in 1836, while engaged in the service of the state at Roanoke in Stewart county." [Presented online by the Digital Library of Georgia]

APPROPRIATIONS
"to James L. Daniel, for Indian spoliations [sic] at Roanoke, about $1600 with sundry other appropriations for attorneys' fees, &c." [The Macon Weekly Telegraph, Macon, Georgia, Tuesday, January 9, 1844, Page 2]

On September 5, 1836, Warren JOURDAN applied for Letters of Administration de bonis non on the Estate of Levi DANIEL, dec'd. James L. DANIEL objected to the grant of letters to Warren JOURDAN because JOURDAN is not next of kin to Levi, nor connected by consanguinity or affinity. James also said that he was entitled to the Letters in preference of all others because he is the only son of Levi DANIEL and desires to have the Letters issued to him. The Court ruled in James' favor and ordered that he execute bond with security in the sum of $20,000, and that John W. DANIEL and James J. BUTTS be received as such security. "Whereupon the said James L. DANIEL appeared personally in open court - executed the bond required - was duly sworn and received Letters of Administration de bonis..." On January 2, 1837, the Court found that James L. had not made an inventory or appraisement of Levi's estate and upon motion by Warren JOURDAN was ordered to "shew" cause why he had not made the returns required by law. At the next meeting of the court, James L. failed to shew any cause, resulting in his Letters of Administration being revoked. Warren JOURDAN, now a legatee of Levi's will because he was the husband of James L.'s sister, Juliett Anna DANIELL, applied for the Letters of Administration for Levi DANIELL's estate, and was granted such in November, 1837. While the controversy over Levi's will was ongoing, James L. DANIEL, executor of John DANIEL's estate the court determined that he had fully and faithfully discharged his duties as executor and issued Letters of Dismission for him from that role. It is then indeed curious that he failed, or neglected, in executing his responsibilities in the estate of his father.

Glennville, Alabama is commemorated by a roadside marker, located thirteen miles south of Seale on U.S. Highway 431, which reads:
GLENNVILLE Marker Dedication or Erection Date: 1980
SIDE 1:
One of the earliest white settlements in the Old Creek Indian Nation. James Elizabeth Glenn, who named the town, and his brother Thompson Glenn, arrived here in 1835 only to have to evacuate during the Indian uprisings of 1836, at which time all buildings were destroyed and the remaining settlers killed. Thompson Glenn is credited with effecting the removal, to Columbus Georgia, of the entrapped white citizens of nearby Roanoke, Georgia, during the same uprising. Glennville was resettled upon the removal of the Indians. It rapidly attracted settlers and their social and cultural standards caused Glennville to be known as "The Athens of the South."
Erected by the Historic Chattahoochee Commission and the Russell County Historical Commission, 1980.
SIDE 2: GLENNVILLE
At its apex this town had collegiate institutes, finishing schools, a military academy, classic churches and stately homes. In 1854 John Bowles Glenn left here to establish a school at Auburn and became its first president of the board of trustees. This school in successive changes became Auburn University. Glennville was the home of the only known lynch mob that bought a newspaper advertisement, acknowledged the deed and published their names. The victim, a convicted murderer, was a member of a prominent Barbour county white family. The incidents brought national attention to the town. The failure to accept a railroad, seen as "an intrusion on their way of living," proved to be the herald of the town's demise.

(NOTE: The original spelling of "Glennville" has evolved to "Glenville" on current maps and signage.)

From the Southern Christian Advocate, July 3, 1846: "Died, in Glennville, Ala., on the 14th April, the Rev. Jas. L. DANIEL, in the 48th year of his age...left a widow and seven children. Jno. B. GLEEN [GLENN], Glennville, Ala., June 18." He was buried in IVEY Cemetery in Glennville, Russell County, Alabama near his mother, Martha P. DANIELL. In 1857, his wife, Eliza C. DANIELL was buried beside him. James' tombstone reads:

This cemetery is also mentioned in the Marie Godfrey's cemetery compilation (1960's) as " 8. cemetery on MITCHELL place, west of Glennville Plantation", also referring to it as "Ivy cemetery."

[Compiler's note: I visited Ivey Cemetery on 1and 3 December 2006. Mr. Wilfred Davis, who lives nearby, escorted me to the cemetery. He said that Barron I. and Charlotte Pirie Shacklette, recent owners of the property, reclaimed the cemetery from massive overgrowth of vegetation and the cemetery is cared for. Barron and Charlotte are deceased and buried here, he in 2001 and she in 1993. The cemetery is located off the southern dead end of a single lane clay road, about 50 yards to the right of a large white house at 250 Continuation Street, Pittsview, Alabama. According to dates on gravestones, Ivey Cemetery was in use from 1842 until 1875. Sadly, many graves are damaged and gravestones broken. Inscriptions are expectedly weathered. Some graves appear to have been robbed of foundation bricks or other materials. A small section of mortar and beautiful red brick lies among other materials by the southern fence line. Large slabs from many of the graves are either askew, broken (probably from being dropped when removed from their bases) and/or partially buried. The grave of my great-great-grandfather, Rev. James Levi DANIELL, 1797- 1846, over half sunken, still has its brick foundation, although a few bricks are missing. A number of unmarked small slabs with etched borders and possibly foot and side of grave markers are in piles or leaned on trees. The cemetery, bordered on three sides by pasture is fenced, but a back gate to the pasture is broken down, allowing horses and cows to wander about. The area is well fertilized. [Robert Louis Daniell)]

James died intestate, leaving a substantial estate. Administration of his estate changed hands three times in first three years after his death.

William A. ANDREWS was the first Administrator, appointed in May 1846. Orphans Book 2, page 262: "State of Alabama Barbour County "Know all men by these Presents that we William A. ANDREWS Livi L. DANIEL and E. C. DANIEL are held and firmly bound unto his Honor Patrick H. MITCHELL, Judge of the County Court, and his successors in office in the Penal sum of Fifty Thousand Dollars for the true payment of which sum will and truly to be made we bind ourselves our Heirs Executors and Administrators Jointly and Severally firmly by these Presents. Sealed with our seals and dated this the 25th day of May A. D. 1846.
The Condition of the above obligation is such that whereas the above bound William A. ANDREWS has been appointed Administrator of the Estate of James L. DANIEL deceased. Now if the said William A. ANDREWS Shall well and truly perform all the duties, which are or may be by law required of him as such Administrator then the above obligation to be void otherwise to remain in full force. William A. ANDREWS (LS) Livi L. DANIEL (LS) Eliza C. DANIEL (LS) Approved May 23rd (sic) 1846 P. H. MITCHELL Judge"

On 26 April 1848, Henry W. JERNEGAN was next appointed Administrator of James' estate under penal bond of Fifty Thousand Dollars, securities Levi L. DANIEL and William A. ANDREWS. Signatories included Francis C. BUTTS, William HOLT, Eliza C. DANIEL, Judge P. H. MITCHELL, and W. R. COWEN, Clerk.

A year later, James' widow, Eliza C. DANIELL became administratrix of the estate. Orphans Book 3, page 344: "State of Alabama Barbour County Know all men by these Presents that we Eliza C. DANIEL Livi L. DANIEL Wm A. ANDREWS (blank space) BUTTS are held firmly bound unto George L. BARRY Judge of the County Court and his Successors in office in the sum of Thirty Thousand Dollars for the payment of which we bind ourselves our heirs Executors and Administrators firmly by these Presents sealed with our seals and dated this 23 day of July 1849. The condition of the above Obligation is such that whereas the above bound Eliza C. DANIEL has been duly appointed Administratrix of de bonis non of the Estate of James L.

Eliza C. DANIEL (LS) Wm A. ANDREWS (LS) F. C. BUTTS (LS) Livi L. DANIEL (LS)"

On 6 December, 1850, Eliza, Administratrix, through her attorneys Cato & Cato, filed a petition to the Honorable William R. COWEN, now Judge of the Probate Court, saying the estate was in debt for $7800 and sought to sell the land and crops which would sell for $8100, more than satisfying the debt and "will leave the Slave property division among the heirs of the estate and petitioner shows that it is the intent and the wishes of the heirs of said Estate as well as petitioner that the slaves be divided and hereby prays for an order of division as authorized by law...." In addition, she requests to sell the stock and fodder and requests a private sale of the cotton. (Orphan Book 3, p. 624)

Orphan Book 4, p. 82 records the continuing petition for division of James' estate: "The State of Alabama Barbour County To the Hon Judges of Probate of Said County The Petition of Eliza C. DANIEL, Administratrix of James L. DANIEL late of said County, Dec'd., respectfully shows that Said James L. dec'd Seized and possessed of the following real estate to wit: the northwest quarter of Section Thirty in township thirteen of Range Twenty nine containing one hundred and sixty two acres and ninety four hundredths, the east half of Section Twenty five Township Thirteen of Range Twenty eight, the west half of Section Twenty five in Township Thirteen and Range Twenty eight and the east half of Section Twenty four in Township Thirteen of Range twenty eight, all lying in Barbour County. Petitioner further shows that the following are the heirs of said James L. DANIEL viz: Martha now the wife of William A. ANDREWS, Catherine wife of Francis C. BUTTS, James Henry DANIEL over the age of Twenty one years, and John Levi DANIEL, Samuel C. DANIEL, Julia et (sic) A. DANIEL and Sarah E. DANIEL, each under the age of twenty one years, all residing in Barbour County and that the said heirs of said estate will be less injured by a sale of said lands or a part thereof for the payment of Debts thereby sale of the slaves of said estate. Your petitioner therefore prays that the that the said lands may be sold for the purpose aforesaid. Eliza C. DANIEL by her attys Cato & Cato"
In response, the Court set the second Monday in January to hear and determine the matter of said petition, ordering citation to the heirs of full age and the guardians of the minors to appear and contest the petition, further ordering that A. C. MITCHELL be appointed Guardian ad Litem for John L., Samuel C., Julia et (sic) A., & Sarah E. on 2d Monday on Jany A. D. 1851. The petition was later continued until 14 April 1851 when, appearing before Judge W. R. COWEN, the record shows "..it appearing to the satisfaction of this Court that heretofore to wit on the Second day of November 1850 A. C. MITCHELL was duly appointed Guardian ad Litem for John L., Samuel C., Julia A., & Sarah E. DANIEL minors and that thereupon the Said A. C. MITCHELL filed his answer to the said petition for & behalf of the said minors denying all and singular the allegations the same And it appearing to the Court from proofs Jas. L.

General Notes: Wife - Elizabeth Clements BUTTS

Elizabeth Clements BUTTS, born 22 Jul 1802, was the daughter of Captain John BUTTS and Sarah SIMMONS of Hancock County, Georgia. She married James Levi DANIELL on 3 December 1818. They made their home in Hancock County until 1835 when the family moved to Alabama.

"Elisa" DANIEL is named in the 6 February 1835 Will of her father, Capt. James BUTTS: "...my will and desire that the balance of my whole estate be equally divided into eight equal shares and also that my negroes be divided into eight equal shares to be equally divided between my children ... Elisa DANIEL, ..."

Elizabeth C. DANIEL's husband died in 1846. She is head of household in the 1850.

(Huldah HILL and Marietta REES may be orphans Eliza took in. I don't believe they are servants since "occupation" is blank, and "Attended School within the year" is checked. Teresa Griffis)
[Hulda HILL, age 18, may be the daughter of William Castilo HILL and Mary DYKES born 12 September 1832 in Georgia. If so, Hulda is said to have married James P. REDDING. Hulda is the sister of Julia Mariah HILL who married Eli H. CALLAWAY, a link back to the CALLAWAY-DANIELL cousins in Baldwin County, Georgia. Marietta REES is not yet identified. RLD)

Eliza's obituary was published in the Southern Christian Advocate, October 29, 1857, (abstract): "Mrs. Eliza C. DANIEL was born in Hancock Co., Ga., July 22nd, 1802 and died at the residence of her brother James J. BUTTS*, in her 56th year...removed to Glennville, Ala., with her husband, the Rev. James L. DANIEL and family in 1835... Junius JORDAN." [*Eliza's brother was James Irwin BUTTS. No doubt this was an "I" read as a "J." James I.'s home was in Hancock County, Georgia.RLD]

Eliza C. DANIELL is buried beside her husband Rev. James Levi and near his mother, Martha P. DANIELL, in the Ivey Cemetery, Russell County, Alabama. As of my visit to this cemetery on December 1, 2006, her large tombstone is askew from the line of James L's crypt and stone and broken into three large pieces, the lower portion partially buried and grown over by a root of a cedar stump. It is mostly legible:

In memory of
ELIZA C. DANIELL
Born in Hancock Co., Ga.,
July 23, 1802.
Died Oct. 5, 1857

Francis C. BUTTS, husband of her daughter, Catherine, is also buried close to James L. and Eliza C. in Ivey Cemetery. Catherine may also be buried here in an unmarked grave. There are many unmarked stones spread around the cemetery or piled near trees.

Compiler's note: I visited Ivey Cemetery on 1and 3 December 2006. Mr. Wilfred Davis, who lives nearby, escorted me to the cemetery.

***********************************************
This statement of competency by J. T. Butts was made to G. B. Ellard at his home in Kilgore, Texas, on March 24, 1933. Colonel Daniel's son found it among papers he was working on for a Dallas oil company, and thought his father would enjoy reading it. Colonel Daniel shares it with ETGS readers because it tells such a moving story of early settlers in East Texas, made at the height of the great East Texas oil boom.
"I am 86 years old. I was born in Hancock County, Georgia, on February 8, 1847. My father's name was George Washington Butts and my mother's name was Charlotte Butts.
On Christmas Eve day 1859 my father and mother arrived at what is now known as the Danville settlement about 3 and 1/2 miles north-east of Kilgore. Calvin Brown and a sister of mine by the name of Lizzie and myself accompanied my father on this trip from Georgia to Texas. There were about five white families that joined my father on this trip and it took eight weeks for us to come thru from Georgia. All those families settled in and around what is now known as Kilgore.
The Bass, Wilcoxon, McGilvary, and Edmund Butts family were the other white families that came thru in the wagon train with my father.
My father brought several negro slaves with him to Texas. The Indians had just moved out of this part of Texas when we came here.
Shreveport is where we carried our cotton to market and did our trading. This was a timber country then and there was very little open land without timber. Plenty of deer, squirrels, wild turkey and other kinds of game.
Calvin Brown's father and mother were light-colored negroes, and what we would call mulatto negroes. My father raised Calvin Brown's mother and at the time Calvin Brown was born, his father and mother were both slaves belonging to my father. My father told me that Calvin Brown was about two years than I was. All the white folks and negroes that came from Georgia with my father are now dead except Calvin Brown and myself, so far as I know.
My father and Mr. Bass sent a Mr. Morand and some negroes to Texas in 1858 and rented a farm the first year, known as the Pegues place. After the negroes were freed, Calvin's father and mother took the name of Brown and nived [moved?] out and started farming for themselves. Calvin's father was named Juber Brown and his mother, Mary Brown.
I have not seen Calvin Brown very much for the past year, but before that I saw him quite often; on second thought, I have not seen Calvin since the oil boom started. Calvin Brown has always been a hard-working negro and was about the only farmer in this country, white or black, that raised most everything that he needed at home. Calvin used to barbecue a shoat and bring it in to Kilgore and sell it around and it was fine eating. So far as I know, Calvin Brown has always talked like a sensible person and has never acted to me like a man of unsound mind.
I have lived in this community ever since I arrived here in 1859 and have known Calvin Brown all of my life. In my opinion Calvin Brown has always been of sound mind and I have never noticed anything about him from his acts or conversations that would indicate to me that he was of unsound mind. Calvin has never talked to me about his sales of Oil Leases or Minerals

General Notes: Husband - Francis Clements BUTTS

Francis Clements "Frank" BUTTS was the eldest son of Jesse Goodwin BUTTS and Sarah JERNIGAN, and grandson of Thomas Clements BUTTS and Sarah HUNT.

"Catherine Daniel married 1st. Frank BUTTS, son of Jesse G. BUTTS" [Source: Register of the Butts, Simmons, Thomas, Thorp, and Shivers Families, Compiled by Arthur Irwin Butts, Sr., 1808-1903. [Francis' parents identified by Jean B. Jones as stated in the personal biography of James Irwin BUTTS. Copy provided by Jean B. Jones, daughter of Coach James Wallace "Wally" BUTTS, III, of UGA Bulldog football fame. She believes Francis' middle name was Clements.]

The 1830 census lists Jesse G. BUTTS with two males aged 5 - 10. They are then sons Francis C., born 1821, and Henry G., born 1824, and the two males 15-20 with Jesse in 1840. Both censuses are of Hancock County, Ga.
Francis C. "Frank" BUTTS, was the first child of Jesse Goodwin BUTTS and Sarah JERNIGAN. He is one of the 2 males age 5-10, enumerated in the family of Jesse G. BUTTS in the 1830 census of Hancock County, Georgia. [Series: M19 Roll: 18 Page: 147]

About 1845, Francis married Catherine Eleanor DANIELL, daughter of James Levi DANIELL and Elizabeth Clements BUTTS. Francis and Catherine were second cousins.

1850 U.S. Census, Alabama, Barbour County, Division 23; Series: M432 Roll: 1 Page: 215: 1645 Francis C. BUTT [sic] 29 M Farmer 1600 GA; Catherine 24 F GA; Martin A. 4 M AL.
Francis' next door neighbor, Mary R. WEGMEN[?] 45 F W SC, has Elizabeth BUTT 14 F W GA in her household.

Francis died in 1859, leaving Catherine with five young children. He was buried in Ivey Cemetery, close to his in-laws, Rev. James L. and Eliza C. DANIELL. His tombstone, broken in half, reads:

In memory of
FRANCIS C. BUTTS
who was born
in Hancock Co., Ga.,
Sept. 25th, 1821,
and died
in Glennville, Ala.,
Feb'y 9th, 1859

Catherine married second Hodija ELAM in 1865 and removed to Americus, Sumter County, Georgia where she died in 1884.

Compiler's note: I visited Ivey Cemetery on 1 and 3 December 2006. Mr. Wilfred Davis, who lives nearby, escorted me to the cemetery. He said that Barron I. and Charlotte Pirie Shacklette, recent owners of the property, reclaimed the cemetery from massive overgrowth of vegetation and the cemetery is cared for. Barron and Charlotte are deceased, he in 2001 and she in 1993, both buried in Ivey cemetery. The cemetery is located off the southern dead end of a single lane clay road, about 50 yards to the right of a large white house at 250 Continuation Street, Pittsview, Alabama. According to dates on gravestones, Ivey Cemetery was in use from 1842 until 1875. Sadly, many graves are damaged and gravestones broken. Inscriptions are expectedly weathered. Some graves appear to have been robbed of foundation bricks or other materials. A small section of mortar and beautiful red brick lies among other materials by the southern fence line. Large slabs from many of the graves are either askew, broken (probably from being dropped when removed from their bases or stepped on by livestock) and/or partially buried. The grave of my great-great-grandfather, Rev. James Levi DANIELL, 1797- 1846, over half sunken and at an odd angle, still has its brick sides, although a few bricks are missing. A number of unmarked small slabs with etched borders and possibly foot and side of grave markers are in piles or leaned on trees. The cemetery, bordered on three sides by pasture is fenced, but a back gate to the pasture is broken down, allowing horses and cows to wander about. The area is well fertilized. (Robert Louis Daniell)

***********************************************
This statement of competency by J. T. Butts was made to G. B. Ellard at his home in Kilgore, Texas, on March 24, 1933. Colonel Daniel's son found it among papers he was working on for a Dallas oil company, and thought his father would enjoy reading it. Colonel Daniel shares it with ETGS readers because it tells such a moving story of early settlers in East Texas, made at the height of the great East Texas oil boom.
"I am 86 years old. I was born in Hancock County, Georgia, on February 8, 1847. My father's name was George Washington Butts and my mother's name was Charlotte Butts.
On Christmas Eve day 1859 my father and mother arrived at what is now known as the Danville settlement about 3 and 1/2 miles north-east of Kilgore. Calvin Brown and a sister of mine by the name of Lizzie and myself accompanied my father on this trip from Georgia to Texas. There were about five white families that joined my father on this trip and it took eight weeks for us to come thru from Georgia. All those families settled in and around what is now known as Kilgore.
The Bass, Wilcoxon, McGilvary, and Edmund Butts family were the other white families that came thru in the wagon train with my father.
My father brought several negro slaves with him to Texas. The Indians had just moved out of this part of Texas when we came here.
Shreveport is where we carried our cotton to market and did our trading. This was a timber country then and there was very little open land without timber. Plenty of deer, squirrels, wild turkey and other kinds of game.
Calvin Brown's father and mother were light-colored negroes, and what we would call mulatto negroes. My father raised Calvin Brown's mother and at the time Calvin Brown was born, his father and mother were both slaves belonging to my father. My father told me that Calvin Brown was about two years than I was. All the white folks and negroes that came from Georgia with my father are now dead except Calvin Brown and myself, so far as I know.
My father and Mr. Bass sent a Mr. Morand and some negroes to Texas in 1858 and rented a farm the first year, known as the Pegues place. After the negroes were freed, Calvin's father and mother took the name of Brown and nived [moved?] out and started farming for themselves. Calvin's father was named Juber Brown and his mother, Mary Brown.
I have not seen Calvin Brown very much for the past year, but before that I saw him quite often; on second thought, I have not seen Calvin since the oil boom started. Calvin Brown has always been a hard-working negro and was about the only farmer in this country, white or black, that raised most everything that he needed at home. Calvin used to barbecue a shoat and bring it in to Kilgore and sell it around and it was fine eating. So far as I know, Calvin Brown has always talked like a sensible person and has never acted to me like a man of unsound mind.
I have lived in this community ever since I arrived here in 1859 and have known Calvin Brown all of my life. In my opinion Calvin Brown has always been of sound mind and I have never noticed anything about him from his acts or conversations that would indicate to me that he was of unsound mind. Calvin has never talked to me about his sales of Oil Leases or Minerals

General Notes: Husband - James BUTTS, Capt., RS-VA

James BUTTS, son of Peter BUTTS and Elizabeth CLEMENTS was born 17 March 1757 as recorded in his family bible. He is listed as "James Butts (7th) Mar. 17, 1757"

"...James Butts was commissioned as a Captain of the Virginia Militia, following the fortunes of General "Light Horse" Harry Lee's command throughout the Revolutionary War." [Men of Mark in Georgia: A Complete and Elaborate History of the State from Its Settlement to the Present Time, Chiefly Told in Biographies and Autobiographies of the Most Eminent Men of Each Period of Georgia's Progress and Development, Volume 2 (Google eBook), page 174]

When did Capt. James Butts move to Hancock County, Georgia? Not enumerated there in any BUTTS household, is he this "Azaih BUTTS" in the 1820 census, the only BUTTS male enumerated as 45 and over in Hancock County? James would have been about age 63.

Line 20: James L. DANIEL who married James BUTTS' daughter, Elizabeth Clements, on 3 December 1818.

James BUTTS is titled "Captain" in the notice of the wedding of his daughter Eliza BUTTS and James L. DANIEL in "Marriages and Deaths, 1763 to 1820" Abstracted from Extant Georgia Newspapers by Mary Bondurant Warren, 1968, p. 27.

James' son Simmons BUTTS died in 1822. When Simmons' son Arthur Irwin BUTTS, age 14, was about to go into the world to seek his fortune, his grandfather, Captain James BUTTS, advised him, "You have no father and will be without a mother's influence. Remember you bear a name that has never been disgraced. Don't be the first to disgrace it."

I give and bequeath to my grandchildren Katharine SIMMONS, Kesiah BUTTS , Arthur BUTTS, Mary BUTTS and Edmund BUTTS, children of my son Simmons BUTTS one negro girl each to be worth one hundred and ten dollars in making this estimation I expect my executors to give them such girl children as are weaned from their mothers say to be one year old at least.
Item 3. I give and bequeath to my granddaughter Frances DAVIES the sum of one thousand dollars which amount of money to be raised by my executors I wish laid out in such property as the said Francis shall direct, which property when so purchased I give and bequeath to the said Francis during her natural life to her sole and separate use free from the control of her husband and in such manner that it may not be taken for the payment of the debts of her present or any future husband after the death of the said Frances, I give and bequeath said property to the children of the said Frances their heirs and assigns.
Item 4. I give and bequeath to my grand son Hull BUTTS the sum of one thousand dollars.
Item 5th. I give and bequeath to James L. DANIEL in trust to and for the use of my granddaughter Eleanor ASPINWALL the sum of one thousand dollars provided however that the said James L. DANIEL is expected to use said thousand dollars in such manner as may be conceived most conducive to the interest of the said Eleanor during her minority or remaining unmarried to be at liberty to apply any part of the profits of said one thousand dollars to the benefit of the said Eleanor when the said Eleanor shall arrive at lawful age or marry it is my wish and desire that said money should be laid out in such property as the said Eleanor shall direct which property so purchased I give and bequeath to the said Eleanor during her natural life to be held by her free of the control of her husband and to her sole and separate use after her death to her children in fee simple. But in the event that the said Eleanor should die before she marries or arrives at lawful age it is my will and desire that said money should be returned back into my estate to be disposed of as hereinafter expressed.
Item 6. After the payment of my just debts by my Executors it is my will and desire that all my estate both real and personal except my negroes be sold by them and after paying off the legacies herein before expressed it is my will and desire that the balance of my whole estate be equally divided into eight equal shares and also that my negroes be divided into eight equal shares to be equally divided between my children Parker BUTTS, Lewis BUTTS, Matt C. BUTTS, James I. BUTTS, Elisa DANIEL, Benjamin K. BUTTS, David BUTTS, Washington BUTTS.
Item 7. I give and bequeath to Lewis BUTTS and James W. SIMMONS in trust to and for the use of my son Parker BUTTS during his natural life and after his death in trust to and for the use of his children the distributive share of my Estate which would be the portion of the said Parker BUTTS under the sixth clause of my will, the said Lewis BUTTS and James SIMMONS to take into their possession this property and to appropriate the proceeds thereof to the use of the said Parker BUTTS's support and his children, and provided also that if the children of Parker BUTTS should all die without issue it is my will and desire that said property be returned into my estate to be divided according to the sixth clause of this my will.
Item 8th. I give and bequeath to my executors in trust to and for the use of my son Matt C. BUTTS for five years after my death the distributive share of my estate which would be the portion of Matt C. BUTTS under the sixth clause of my will provided however that the said Matt C. BUTTS is to have possession of said property for said time, by which time I hope he will be enabled to pay all his debts, and for fear of misconstruction of my intention in this clause I would state that my intention is to protect the portion of Matt C. BUTTS from levy and sale for the payment of debts for five years, after that time I give and bequeath said property to him subject to the payment of his debts provided however that if the said Matt C. BUTTS should die without any child or children that such portion should return back into my estate as respects debts due me by Matt C. BUTTS I wish my executors to collect out of Matt C. BUTTS the one half of two executions belonging to me in the name of John BUTTS for the use of N. B. WILLIAMS against BUTTS ASPINWALL and MOORE and myself, the notes which I hold against him together with the one half of said Executions I wish thrown into one common stock to be divided under the sixth clause and in the amount given to Matt C. BUTTS it is my wish that said amount be deducted from his share.
Item 9. Lastly- I nominate and appoint my son James I. BUTTS and my son in law James L. DANIEL my Executors to this my last will and testament.
In testimony whereof I have hereto set my hand this 6th day of February 1835.
James BUTTS Sen.

General Notes: Husband - James BUTTS, Capt., RS-VA

James BUTTS, son of Peter BUTTS and Elizabeth CLEMENTS was born 17 March 1757 as recorded in his family bible. He is listed as "James Butts (7th) Mar. 17, 1757"

"...James Butts was commissioned as a Captain of the Virginia Militia, following the fortunes of General "Light Horse" Harry Lee's command throughout the Revolutionary War." [Men of Mark in Georgia: A Complete and Elaborate History of the State from Its Settlement to the Present Time, Chiefly Told in Biographies and Autobiographies of the Most Eminent Men of Each Period of Georgia's Progress and Development, Volume 2 (Google eBook), page 174]

When did Capt. James Butts move to Hancock County, Georgia? Not enumerated there in any BUTTS household, is he this "Azaih BUTTS" in the 1820 census, the only BUTTS male enumerated as 45 and over in Hancock County? James would have been about age 63.
The 1820 U. S. Census of Hancock County, Clayton's District:
Line 17: "Aziah BUTTS" . 2 . . . 1 || . 1 . 1 . .
[2 males, 10-16, 1 male 45 and over; 1 female, 10-16, 1 female 26-45]
On the same page:
Line 1: Simmons BUTTS, James' BUTTS' son.
Line 20: James L. DANIEL who married James BUTTS' daughter, Elizabeth Clements, on 3 December 1818.

James BUTTS is titled "Captain" in the notice of the wedding of his daughter Eliza BUTTS and James L. DANIEL in "Marriages and Deaths, 1763 to 1820" Abstracted from Extant Georgia Newspapers by Mary Bondurant Warren, 1968, p. 27.

James' son Simmons BUTTS died in 1822. When Simmons' son Arthur Irwin BUTTS, age 14, was about to go into the world to seek his fortune, his grandfather, Captain James BUTTS, advised him, "You have no father and will be without a mother's influence. Remember you bear a name that has never been disgraced. Don't be the first to disgrace it."

James BUTTS, age 78 years, native of Virginia, and a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Numerous family. Mar 17, 1835." The "17th ult." was 17 February 1835.

General Notes: Husband - James BUTTS, Capt., RS-VA

James BUTTS, son of Peter BUTTS and Elizabeth CLEMENTS was born 17 March 1757 as recorded in his family bible. He is listed as "James Butts (7th) Mar. 17, 1757"

"...James Butts was commissioned as a Captain of the Virginia Militia, following the fortunes of General "Light Horse" Harry Lee's command throughout the Revolutionary War." [Men of Mark in Georgia: A Complete and Elaborate History of the State from Its Settlement to the Present Time, Chiefly Told in Biographies and Autobiographies of the Most Eminent Men of Each Period of Georgia's Progress and Development, Volume 2 (Google eBook), page 174]

When did Capt. James Butts move to Hancock County, Georgia? Not enumerated there in any BUTTS household, is he this "Azaih BUTTS" in the 1820 census, the only BUTTS male enumerated as 45 and over in Hancock County? James would have been about age 63.
The 1820 U. S. Census of Hancock County, Clayton's District:
Line 17: "Aziah BUTTS" . 2 . . . 1 || . 1 . 1 . .
[2 males, 10-16, 1 male 45 and over; 1 female, 10-16, 1 female 26-45]
On the same page:
Line 1: Simmons BUTTS, James' BUTTS' son.
Line 20: James L. DANIEL who married James BUTTS' daughter, Elizabeth Clements, on 3 December 1818.

James BUTTS is titled "Captain" in the notice of the wedding of his daughter Eliza BUTTS and James L. DANIEL in "Marriages and Deaths, 1763 to 1820" Abstracted from Extant Georgia Newspapers by Mary Bondurant Warren, 1968, p. 27.

James' son Simmons BUTTS died in 1822. When Simmons' son Arthur Irwin BUTTS, age 14, was about to go into the world to seek his fortune, his grandfather, Captain James BUTTS, advised him, "You have no father and will be without a mother's influence. Remember you bear a name that has never been disgraced. Don't be the first to disgrace it."

James BUTTS' obituary, recorded in Marriages and Obituaries from Early Georgia Newspapers, Abstracts by Judge Folks Huxford, F.A.S.G., states "At his residence in Hancock County on 17th ult., Capt. James BUTTS, age 78 years, native of Virginia, and a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Numerous family. Mar 17, 1835." The "17th ult." was 17 February 1835. His gravestone, enclosed by a wrought iron picket fence in the James Butts Family Cemetery (Butts Cemetery), Devereux, Hancock County, Georgia is pictured on Find A Grave Memorial# 38483870:

Georgia Hancock County
I James BUTTS of the County and State aforesaid being weak in body but of sound and disposing mind and memory do make and publish this my last will and testament hereby revoking all former wills by me made.
Item 1. It is my wish and desire that after my death that my executors pay my just debts which I may be owing, before the payment of any legacy herein given, and for this purpose I desire my whole estate to be kept together and worked together for the benefit of my estate untill sufficient money can be raised to pay off my debts.
Item 2. I give and bequeath to my grandchildren Katharine SIMMONS, Kesiah BUTTS , Arthur BUTTS, Mary BUTTS and Edmund BUTTS, children of my son Simmons BUTTS one negro girl each to be worth one hundred and ten dollars in making this estimation I expect my executors to give them such girl children as are weaned from their mothers say to be one year old at least.
Item 3. I give and bequeath to my granddaughter Frances DAVIES the sum of one thousand dollars which amount of money to be raised by my executors I wish laid out in such property as the said Francis shall direct, which property when so purchased I give and bequeath to the said Francis during her natural life to her sole and separate use free from the control of her husband and in such manner that it may not be taken for the payment of the debts of her present or any future husband after the death of the said Frances, I give and bequeath said property to the children of the said Frances their heirs and assigns.
Item 4. I give and bequeath to my grand son Hull BUTTS the sum of one thousand dollars.
Item 5th. I give and bequeath to James L. DANIEL in trust to and for the use of my granddaughter Eleanor ASPINWALL the sum of one thousand dollars provided however that the said James L. DANIEL is expected to use said thousand dollars in such manner as may be conceived most conducive to the interest of the said Eleanor during her minority or remaining unmarried to be at liberty to apply any part of the profits of said one thousand dollars to the benefit of the said Eleanor when the said Eleanor shall arrive at lawful age or marry it is my wish and desire that said money should be laid out in such property as the said Eleanor shall direct which property so purchased I give and bequeath to the said Eleanor during her natural life to be held by her free of the control of her husband and to her sole and separate use after her death to her children in fee simple. But in the event that the said Eleanor should die before she marries or arrives at lawful age it is my will and desire that said money should be returned back into my estate to be disposed of as hereinafter expressed.
Item 6. After the payment of my just debts by my Executors it is my will and desire that all my estate both real and personal except my negroes be sold by them and after paying off the legacies herein before expressed it is my will and desire that the balance of my whole estate be equally divided into eight equal shares and also that my negroes be divided into eight equal shares to be equally divided between my children Parker BUTTS, Lewis BUTTS, Matt C. BUTTS, James I. BUTTS, Elisa DANIEL, Benjamin K. BUTTS, David BUTTS, Washington BUTTS.
Item 7. I give and bequeath to Lewis BUTTS and James W. SIMMONS in trust to and for the use of my son Parker BUTTS during his natural life and after his death in trust to and for the use of his children the distributive share of my Estate which would be the portion of the said Parker BUTTS under the sixth clause of my will, the said Lewis BUTTS and James SIMMONS to take into their possession this property and to appropriate the proceeds thereof to the use of the said Parker BUTTS's support and his children, and provided also that if the children of Parker BUTTS should all die without issue it is my will and desire that said property be returned into my estate to be divided according to the sixth clause of this my will.
Item 8th. I give and bequeath to my executors in trust to and for the use of my son Matt C. BUTTS for five years after my death the distributive share of my estate which would be the portion of Matt C. BUTTS under the sixth clause of my will provided however that the said Matt C. BUTTS is to have possession of said property for said time, by which time I hope he will be enabled to pay all his debts, and for fear of misconstruction of my intention in this clause I would state that my intention is to protect the portion of Matt C. BUTTS from levy and sale for the payment of debts for five years, after that time I give and bequeath said property to him subject to the payment of his debts provided however that if the said Matt C. BUTTS should die without any child or children that such portion should return back into my estate as respects debts due me by Matt C. BUTTS I wish my executors to collect out of Matt C. BUTTS the one half of two executions belonging to me in the name of John BUTTS for the use of N. B. WILLIAMS against BUTTS ASPINWALL and MOORE and myself, the notes which I hold against him together with the one half of said Executions I wish thrown into one common stock to be divided under the sixth clause and in the amount given to Matt C. BUTTS it is my wish that said amount be deducted from his share.
Item 9. Lastly- I nominate and appoint my son James I. BUTTS and my son in law James L. DANIEL my Executors to this my last will and testament.
In testimony whereof I have hereto set my hand this 6th day of February 1835.
James BUTTS Sen.
Signed and acknowledged in presence of us and witnessed by us in presence of each of us.

Whereupon James L. DANIEL and James I. BUTTS were duly sworn and qualified as Executors of said Last Will and testament, and Letters Testamentary were issued to them in the presises. (Transcribed by Teresa D. Griffis on 6 September 2002. From copy obtained at Hancock County Courthouse, Sparta, Georgia.)

The appraisers for James BUTTS' estate were Benjamin HARPER, John B. SIMMONS, James W. SIMMONS, Henry GAREY, George AMOSS, and Robert B. BINION.

James names his granddaughter, Katherine SIMMONS, but not her mother or father. James W. SIMMONS may be her father or grandfather. Her mother may have died before the will was written. Elisa is the only daughter listed, and, at age 16, she married James L. DANIELL. Three other grandchildren are named, Frances DAVIES, Hull BUTTS, and Eleanor ASPINWALL, but their parents are not indicated in the will. Eleanor ASPINWALL married Levi Lawrence David DANIEL, a son of John DANIEL. Eleanor's guardian was James L. DANIELL, half brother of her father-in-law.

Published in the Southern Recorder, Mar. 31, 1835 -- p. 4: "ALL those indebted to James BUTTS, sen'r late of Hancock county, deceased, are requested to make immediate payment, and those having demands against the decease, are requested to present them in the terms of law." JAMES L. DANIELL, JAMES J. BUTTS, Ex'ors." [James J. BUTTS should be James I. BUTTS, most likely a misread of handwriting. RLD]

Below are two transcriptions of James BUTTS Family Bible: one as James BUTTS, Sr, which contains information on the families of James' parents, Peter and Elizabeth, and grandparents, Thomas and Catherine; and the other as [Capt.] James BUTTS which presents his family.

***********************************************
This statement of competency by J. T. Butts was made to G. B. Ellard at his home in Kilgore, Texas, on March 24, 1933. Colonel Daniel's son found it among papers he was working on for a Dallas oil company, and thought his father would enjoy reading it. Colonel Daniel shares it with ETGS readers because it tells such a moving story of early settlers in East Texas, made at the height of the great East Texas oil boom.
"I am 86 years old. I was born in Hancock County, Georgia, on February 8, 1847. My father's name was George Washington Butts and my mother's name was Charlotte Butts.
On Christmas Eve day 1859 my father and mother arrived at what is now known as the Danville settlement about 3 and 1/2 miles north-east of Kilgore. Calvin Brown and a sister of mine by the name of Lizzie and myself accompanied my father on this trip from Georgia to Texas. There were about five white families that joined my father on this trip and it took eight weeks for us to come thru from Georgia. All those families settled in and around what is now known as Kilgore.
The Bass, Wilcoxon, McGilvary, and Edmund Butts family were the other white families that came thru in the wagon train with my father.
My father brought several negro slaves with him to Texas. The Indians had just moved out of this part of Texas when we came here.
Shreveport is where we carried our cotton to market and did our trading. This was a timber country then and there was very little open land without timber. Plenty of deer, squirrels, wild turkey and other kinds of game.
Calvin Brown's father and mother were light-colored negroes, and what we would call mulatto negroes. My father raised Calvin Brown's mother and at the time Calvin Brown was born, his father and mother were both slaves belonging to my father. My father told me that Calvin Brown was about two years than I was. All the white folks and negroes that came from Georgia with my father are now dead except Calvin Brown and myself, so far as I know.
My father and Mr. Bass sent a Mr. Morand and some negroes to Texas in 1858 and rented a farm the first year, known as the Pegues place. After the negroes were freed, Calvin's father and mother took the name of Brown and nived [moved?] out and started farming for themselves. Calvin's father was named Juber Brown and his mother, Mary Brown.
I have not seen Calvin Brown very much for the past year, but before that I saw him quite often; on second thought, I have not seen Calvin since the oil boom started. Calvin Brown has always been a hard-working negro and was about the only farmer in this country, white or black, that raised most everything that he needed at home. Calvin used to barbecue a shoat and bring it in to Kilgore and sell it around and it was fine eating. So far as I know, Calvin Brown has always talked like a sensible person and has never acted to me like a man of unsound mind.
I have lived in this community ever since I arrived here in 1859 and have known Calvin Brown all of my life. In my opinion Calvin Brown has always been of sound mind and I have never noticed anything about him from his acts or conversations that would indicate to me that he was of unsound mind. Calvin has never talked to me about his sales of Oil Leases or Minerals

General Notes: Husband - James Wallace BUTTS III

"James Wallace "Wally" Butts, Jr. (February 7, 1905 December 17, 1973) was the head football coach (seasons 1939 through 1960) and athletic director (1939 to 1963) at the University of Georgia."

[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wally_Butts]

Football coaching great James Wallace (Wally) Butts was born in Milledgeville, Georgia. In high school and college, he became a successful star in three sports -- football, basketball, and baseball. Butts coached football at several high schools and at Georgia Military College. In 1938, he was named an assistant coach at the University of Georgia, and the following year he became head coach. His twenty-two year reign as Georgia's head football coach was a time of unprecedented success for the football program. His teams won 140 games, including four major bowl victories and four Southeastern Conference championships. While noted for his rugged coaching style and insistence on discipline and conditioning, Butts was also an innovator in developing passing routes in a time when most college football teams relied primarily on rushing plays. Butts was named Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year in 1942, 1946, and 1959. He retired from coaching in 1960, but remained athletic director in 1963. It was during these last three years that the Saturday Evening Post published a story accusing Butts of giving an opponent inside information on Georgia's team and game plans. Former players and coaches rallied to his support, denouncing the article as absurd. Butts sued the Post for libel, and a jury agreed that the evidence did not support the allegations; Butts was awarded a large cash settlement for the damage to his reputation. After retiring from the University, Butts remained in Athens as owner of a successful insurance company. He suffered a heart attack while jogging, and died on December 17, 1973. Today Georgia's sports museum and main athletic building is named in honor of Coach Butts and another Georgia great, Harry Mehre.

DEATH OF A VETERAN
Captain Wallace BUTTS, the Veteran Commander of the Baldwin Blues
Friends in this city have been informed of the death of Captain Wallace BUTTS, the veteran commander of the Baldwin Blues.
This piece of news will cause general sadness among those who fought with Captain BUTTS, in the Fourth Georgia regiment, during the troublesome days of the late war.
Captain BUTTS left his home in Milledgeville as a boy, and went as a private, with the Blues, and in many a hard fought battle he was one of the bravest of the brave.
Twice wounded, he left a leg and one of his hands on the battle field, but undaunted he stood by his colors, finally being promoted for distinquished bravery to the captaincy of the Blues, which post he filled with honor and credit to himself and his gallant company he commanded.
After the war Captain BUTTS studied the profession of medicine and practiced for several years with success in his native county.
He leaves a family and a host of friends in Milledgeville, who join in paying tribute to the memory of the veteran soldier, whose life was so full of noble deeds.
"Capt. J. M. CARAKER, being wounded and disabled at the bloody battle of Sharpsburg, Wallace BUTTS, one of the "bravest of the brave," was elected as Captain. He continued as such until April, 1864, when he was desperately wounded, in Earley's raid, in sight of Washington City, at the battle of Blair's Farm, losing a leg and falling into the hands of the enemy. Bernard R. HERTY was then in command of the Company until the surrender at Appomattox." (History of Baldwin County Georgia, Mrs. Anna Maria Green Cook, Printed for The History Committe of the Nancy Hart Chapter of the D. A. R., p. 61)

Grave inscription: "Confederate States of America Cap. Baldwin Blues Co. H." See "History of Baldwin County, Georgia" for additional information.

General Notes: Husband - Lt. Benjamin Franklin JONES, USA, WWII

Coach Benjamin Franklin Jones, DHS [Decatur high School] coach 1953-57
Coach Benjamin Franklin Jones, Jr., 90, died Saturday, July 25, 2009. He was the DHS coach from '53 to '57.
He was born August 30, 1918 in Tifton, Ga. He was raised in Macon, Ga., where he excelled in athletics throughout high school. At Middle Georgia Junior College, he participated in four sports and was named "Most Valuable Player." He was captain of the basketball and baseball teams. During World War II, he was in the field artillery and served in both Africa and Italy as a Lieutenant. After the war, he managed and played on an army team at Fort Bragg. Jones received a B.A. in Education from the University of North Carolina in 1948 and a Master's Degree in 1951. He was a scholarship recipient for both football and baseball.
His football coaching career began at Cordele High School and continued at Decatur High School where he was named "Coach of the Week" several times by the Atlanta Journal Touchdown Club. Both his football and baseball teams played in state championship games in the 1953-54 season.
After coaching with great success in Georgia high schools, Jones was picked as Head Football Coach and Athletic Director at Presbyterian College in South Carolina. His teams won the Little Four Championship in 1958, 1959, and 1960. He was Coach of the Year in South Carolina in 1958 and 1959 and runner-up in 1960. He then went to Mississippi State and served as Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator from 1962 to 1965. The 1963-squad went to the Liberty Bowl and posted their best record since 1946. Frank Jones was head football coach at the University of Richmond from 1966 to 1973 and also served as Director of Athletics for seven years. He was the only coach in UR history to record two eight-win seasons. Frank was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year following the 1967, '68, and '71 league championship seasons. He guided the Spiders to two Tangerine Bowl appearances, the only Division I Top 20 appearance in the University's history. When he joined the Spiders, Richmond had the longest losing streak in the nation. That streak was broken in 1966. The Spiders went to their first bowl game in 1968. The Tangerine Bowl bid came after a perfect 6-0 Southern Conference mark. The 49-42 victory over Ohio University capped the Spiders' best football season in 30 years. He was named Coach of the Year for District Three by the American Football Coaches Association. The City Council of Richmond adopted a resolution praising the "honor and distinction the Tangerine Bowl team and coach brought to the city." In 1973, his last season as Head Coach, the Spiders were ranked in the Top 20 in the nation. Jones coached in the North-South All-Star Game and the Blue-Gray All-Star game. He was named to the University of Richmond Athletic Hall of Fame in 1989.
Since 1974, he has been President of Frank Jones & Co. Realty. He developed several subdivisions and co-owned The Veranda restaurant in Starkville, Miss. He was a member of the Country Club of Virginia.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Jean Butts Jones; his children, Page Jones Allen, Wallace Brady Jones, Franklin Taylor Jones, Jean Jones Hogan, Benjamin Thomas Jones; and 11 grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 29 at 2 p.m. at River Road Presbyterian Church, 8960 River Road, Richmond, Va. 23229. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Frank Jones Scholarship Fund, Presbyterian College Athletic Department, 503 S. Adair St., Clinton, S.C. 29325.

General Notes: Husband - Lt. Col. Judson A. BUTTS, CSA

Judson A. BUTTS enlisted in the Confederate Army as a private on 13 November 1861.
Promoted to Full 1st Lieut on 13 March 1862
Promoted to Full Surgeon on 29 October 1862
Served Georgia Born in 1838Enlisted I Co. 31st Inf Reg. GA Surrendered at Appomattox Court House, VA on 09 April 1865
Judson A. Butts, M. D., of Brunswick, formerly surgeon of Gen.Clement A. Evans' regiment, the Thirty-first Georgia, was born in Hancock county, Ga., in 1838, and was graduated in medicine at the old Jefferson medical college, Philadelphia, in 1860. He was establishing himself in the practice of his chosen profession at Bainbridge, Ga., when the Confederacy was organized and hostilities began.
Abandoning his professional ambitions for the time, he took part in the organization of a company at Bainbridge, of which he was elected first lieutenant, and this was mustered in as Company I of the Thirty-first regiment Georgia infantry. He went to
Virginia with Lawton's brigade in 1862, and served as a line officer in the Seven Days' battles, and at Cedar Mountain, Second Manassas, Harper's Ferry and Sharpsburg.
Just after the latter engagement, September 17, 1862, he was commissioned as surgeon of the Thirty-first, the capacity in which he served during the remainder of the war. He was in the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Spottsylvania Court House, Cold Harbor, Lynchburg, Monocacy, Winchester, Cedar Creek, and minor combats, and was on duty on the Richmond and Petersburg lines, and on the retreat to Appomattox, where he surrendered with the army.
After the battle of Gettysburg he was left on the field in charge of the wounded of Gordon's brigade, and he served there until August 1st, when he was sent to Fort McHenry, and exchanged in December, 1863. Dr. Butts practiced his profession at Bainbridge after the war until 1887, when he removed to Brunswick. He is one of the most estimable men among the survivors of the devoted medical service of the Confederacy.

General Notes: Wife - Kezziah Sidney BUTTS

MRS. K. S. SMITH DIED THIS MORNING
Funeral from South Main Street Baptist Church Tomorrow Morning At Nine O'clock
Mrs. Kezziah Sidney Smith, mother of Dr. E. J. Smith, passed quietly from life into the Great Beyond this morning at half passed ten o'clock at the family residence in Oakhaven Court. For several weeks she had been ill with a serious affection of the heart and though she rallied from the first attack it was known that her recovery was not possible. Last Friday there was a turn for the worse and gradually she grew weaker though fully concious until early yesterday morning. Mrs. Smith was 78 years old on the 26th of October. She was a native of Devereaux, Ga. She taught school as a young lady in communities near her home and was held in affectionate esteem by a host of former pupils in that part of Georgia. She was married to Mr. A. I. Smith, farmer and merchant, who died a number of years ago. They had only one child, Dr. Ernest J. Smith, of Greenwood. Mrs. Smith leaves two sisters, Mrs. T. H. Coleman, of Devereaux; Mrs. A. P. Harper of Macon; one brother, Mr. T. U. Butts, of Devereaux; one sister-in-law, Mrs. T. U. Butts, of Columbus.
Funeral services will be held from South Main Street Baptist Church tomorrow, Wednesday, morning, at nine o'clock. Immediately after the funeral services at the church the funeral party will leave for Augusta over the Charleston and Western Carolina railway on the way to Tennile, Ga., where the burial will be had Thursday morning. Dr. Harry A. Bagby, of Marion, Ala., will conduct the funeral exercises.
Mrs. Smith was affectinately known to and called by her host of friends as "Mother Smith." The news of her death will cause to these many, many friends a sense of keen personal bereavement but with it all is the deepest sort of conviction that for her there is now the fulfillment of the great Christian hope. As one of these friends, a man, said of her Sunday afternoon, "She was as near a perfect Christian as I ever knew." She was a woman of profound convictions yet so tempered with a Christian sweetness of tolerance and eager readiness to believe only and always, the best that she seemed to have achieved as nearly as it was humanly possible to achieve the high standards of a Chritian life. She was indeed a woman of whom it might be said truly, "Her works do praise her" and the universal tributes paid her by those who knew her show that her life and example have made a profound impression on every one who came in contact with her. [Greenwood Journal, Nov. 8, 1921, provided by Julia White, Pensacola, Florida, 27 March 2010]

Funeral of Mrs. A. I. Smith
Funeral Services for Mrs. A. I. Smith, mother of Dr. E. J. Smith, were held from South Main Street Baptist church this morning at nine o'clock and though it was an early hour and the weather quite inclement the church was filled with friends of "Mother Smith" anxious to pay the last tribute to one who had won her way into their hearts. The exercises were conducted by Dr. H. A. Bagby, of Marion, Ala., assisted by Dr. G. W. Gardner. The church choir rendered two hymms, "Lead, Kingly light" and "Abide With Me," and these with a prayer by Dr. Gardner, the scripture reading and a short talk by Dr. Bagby constituted the brief but impressive service. Dr. Bagby said that if he had yielded to his own wishes he would be with the bereaved family instead of where he was in the pulpit and further that the more eloquent and impressive than any human words was the sermon preached by the life of "Mother Smith." Very appropriate remarks from the text, "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see Gog." followed and at the conclusin of the services the funeral party went to the station where the body was put on the C. & W. C. train for Augusta enroute to Tennile where the burial will be had tomorrow. Dr. Smith's Father is buried in Tennile. A number of friends will leave this afternoon for Tennile via Augusta to attend the funeral tomorrow." [Greenwood Journal, Nov. 9, 1921, provided by Julia White, Pensacola, Florida, 27 March 2010]

Mrs. K. S. SMITH's Certificate of Death lists her birth on 26 October 1843 in Georgia, her death on November 8, 1921 at age 78 years, 13 days in Greenwood, South Carolina, her parents Jas. I. BUTTS and Saleta BINION, and her burial in Tennile, Georgia on November 9, 1921. Her son, E. J. SMITH provided the information. [South Carolina File No. 19253, State Register]

General Notes: Wife - Lucia Dena BUTTS

Lucia Dena Butts married Walter Ralston Harrell.

Provenance of the William Tappan Thompson Papers at the University of Georgia.
An Excerpt from “Research Journal on William Tappan Thompson” By Herbert Shippey:
"On Friday, July 29, 1983, I went to Quitman, Georgia, to search for information on William Tappan Thompson. Mrs. Emily Lilly, whom I had met while working for the Southwest Georgia Health Systems Agency, introduced me to two women, Mrs. Lucia Butts Harrell and Mrs. Rosa Wade Lovett, who she thought might be helpful. Mrs. Lilly first accompanied me to the home of Mrs. Harrell. She was ninety years old, but she had a clear mind and good hearing. She was slightly crippled and walked with a cane; otherwise, she was quite lively. She had formerly served as registrar for the local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and was also active in the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was keenly interested in history and genealogy, and since I shared her passion for these two subjects, we thoroughly enjoyed talking with one another... I have never experienced two more rewarding or exhilarating days of research than the Friday and Tuesday that I spent at the home of Mrs. Harrell in Quitman. Future scholars of nineteenth-century Southern literature and history owe a debt of gratitude to Mrs. Harrell and her daughter for recognizing the value of the McIntosh papers and safeguarding them for the heirs. Mrs. Jardine and her family are likewise to be commended for making this valuable collection available to scholars."

Lucia is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Quitman, Brooks County, Georgia. A picture of her headstone is on Find A Grave Memorial# 90045569:

William C. Smith died before June 1880 when Martha is a widowed head of household in Hancock County, Georgia. His obituary was published on ______ in the ________ :
Suicide
We regret to chronicle the death of Mr. William C. Smith, better known as Buck Smith, residing near Island Creek, which occurred by his own hand on last Friday morning about 9 o'clock. Mr. S. was an old and respectable citizen of Hancock County. He was about 60 years of age and leaves a large family. On Friday morning he went to the house of Mr. Reynolds, a tenant of his, where he obtained a gun and going a short distance from the house sat down, placed the muzzle of the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, killing himself instantly. Deporession of spiritsproduced by financial embarrassment is supposed to be the cause of the desperate act."
