General Notes: Husband - Judge Gustave COOK, Col., CSA

COOK, GUSTAVE (1835-1897). Gustave Cook (Cooke), lawyer and judge, son of Nathaniel and Harriet Anthony (Herbert) Cook, was born in Lowndes County, Alabama, on July 3, 1835. After traveling to Texas alone in 1850, he found work as a clerk in a drugstore. During this time he educated himself and began to study law. Judge John B. Jonesqv later directed his studies, and in 1855 Cook was admitted to the bar. On July 13, 1853, he married Eliza Jones; they had four children. Cook was clerk of the district court of Fort Bend County and from 1856 to 1858 served as county judge. He favored secession.qv In 1861 he enlisted as a private in the Eighth Confederate Cavalry,qv Terry's Texas Rangers. He served for the duration of the war and saw action in numerous engagements, including Shiloh, Murfreesboro, and Chickamauga. He received six or seven wounds during the war and reached the rank of colonel.
Cook moved to Houston in 1870 to practice law and was elected to the Thirteenth Legislature in 1872. He was appointed judge of the criminal court for the district comprising Galveston and Harris counties in 1874 and held the position until he resigned on October 1, 1888. He was a delegate from Texas to the Philadelphia Peace Convention in 1866 and a delegate in 1876 to the Democratic state convention at Galveston, where he opposed endorsing the constitution submitted to the legislature. In 1887, as an antiprohibitionist, he canvassed a great portion of the state, and in 1888 he helped to campaign for the reelection of Roger Q. Millsqv to Congress. In 1890 Cook ran in the convention for the Democratic nomination for governor but was defeated by James S. Hogg.qv In 1892 he moved to San Marcos for his health. He died there in 1897.

General Notes: Husband - Capt. John COOK, Sr., RS-SC

John COOK was born in Brunswick County, Virginia. There, on September 6, 1759, he married his first wife, Elizabeth "Betty" BROWN. John and Betty had three children, a son, Burell, and two daughters, Mary and Sarah.

In his Will dated 21 January 1764, proved 23 April 1764 in Brunswick County, Virginia, Henry COOK, John COOK's brother, bequeathed the 330 acres to his son Thomas, named his wife Eleanor, and bequeathed a slave to each of his daughters, Mary and Salley. Mary and Salley [Sarah?] were likely minors; if so, who was their guardian? Are there probate records for Henry's estate? Curiously, Mary and Sarah are the names of two of the three listed children of John COOK and Elizabeth "Betty" BROWN. Are they Henry COOK's daughters raised by John?

In this article, no daughter Sarah or Salley is named for John COOK and Elizabeth BROWN is named, but a daughter Elizabeth who married George McCRELLIS is. Elizabeth has been shown to the granddaughter of John COOK and daughter of John's son BURRELL COOK. [Alexis Spirtas]
SOUTHSIDE VIRGINIA FAMILIES VI, John Bennet Bodie: Article shows; John COOKE first married with his father's consent, Betty, daughter of Mary and Burwell BROWN of Brunswick. Children: Elizabeth m. George McCRELLIS; Mary m. Colonel Thomas HUTCHISON of Columbia S.C.; Burwell m. Mary POPE. He [John] then married Martha, daughter of Captain John PEARSON and Mary RAIFORD Pearson. Their children were: John m. Mary Ellen HAMPTON; Nathaniel m. Susanna POPE and then Christianna CHAPPELL; Phillip m. Annie Martha WOOTEN; Isaac m. Elizabeth RIVES and Henry who remained unmarried. He [John] then married Sarah_____ who died in 1846 in Hancock. He had several other daughters who married; GRINDEST [sic, GINDRAT], BELLAMY, HERBERT [sic, HARBIRT], BATTLE and DANIEL [sic, DANIELL].

A biography of John COOK, from the notes of Louisa Caroline Floyd Wilson, provided by her grandson, David Leon Wilson:

"John Cook was born in Brunswick County Virginia and married his first wife there. Her name was Betty Brown and they married on September 6, 1759. He was not twenty-one at the time and was spoken of as "Infant" in the marriage bonds and had to have the consent of his father. By this union, there were three children one son, Burell, and two (perhaps three) daughters that grew to adulthood and married. He moved to North Carolina and then South Carolina, settling on the Broad River, at what was later called "Cooks Ferry." It was located on the Broad, near Cedar Creek, making him a neighbor of James Daniell. [John COOK may have had additional land in Richland County. Land records for John Cook in South Carolina are difficult to interpret as there are several John Cooks and even one other Captain John Cook in the records, although most are before 1759, when our John was in Virginia.

John Cook appears on a list of pardons from King George III and the Royal Governor of South Carolina in 6 Aug 1768 (Book PP 1771-1774 page 46). The pardon was for being a "Regulator" and it was contingent on their disbanding their force. The Regulators were formed in the 1760's in response to the state government's refusal to place any lawmen, judges or courts in the upcountry. Because of this, lawlessness was rampant and prominent citizens formed their own armed bands to clean out the nests of criminals, which they did, very effectively. There were excesses however, and soon the governor declared them illegal, hiring about 600 men of low character to clean them out. These men were called "Moderators". It never happened, probably because of the upcountry's support of the Regulator's cause. Ultimately, the only way the governor could get them to disband was to put judges, courts, and lawmen in the upcountry and pardon the Regulators.

John's first wife, Betty, must have died before 1769, about when John Cook married second, Martha Pearson, daughter of Mariner John Pearson and his wife Mary Raiford. They had nine children.

When the Revolutionary War broke out, John was a Captain in the 4th Continental Dragoons under Colonel William Washington. He fought in South Carolina and participated in the battles of Eutaw Springs, Cowpens, and Guilford Courthouse (History of the Revolution in South Carolina, Salley, page 44). Bobby Gilmer Moss, in " Roster of South Carolina Patriots During the American Revolution" also quotes Sally but has him as Captain under Lt. Col. Robert Goodwyn and Col. Richardson in 1778. During the period of the Revolution the non-combatants were treated so cruelly in South Carolina that John Cook's family, along with relatives and friends, fled to North Carolina where they remained until the close of the war, (History of Hancock County, Georgia)

In 1787 John was elected to the South Carolina Legislature for two terms, serving from 1787 to 1790. In 1788, he was elected to the State Convention to decide on the ratification of the United States Constitution. He voted against ratification, a sentiment likely popular with the voters in the back country as they had done without any government locally, a state government that had ignored them, and an oppressive British rule.

1790 Census: John Cook is listed in Fairfield County SC with 4 males under 16, one female, and 33 slaves. Two households away is Burrell Cook, his son, with 2 males under 16, and 2 females. Same page: Mary Pearson with no males over 16, 2 males under 16, and 3 females and 4 slaves. [Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 157]

Subsequently, John Cook moved to Georgia, where he settled upon the "bounties" given to him as a reward for his Revolutionary War service. His homestead [located on Island Creek in Western Hancock County, Georgia] appears on Adj. General Elholm's map of the Oconee frontier in 1793, located on Island Creek in Western Hancock county, where his neighbors included James and son Levi Daniell and others from Fairfield County SC. He also had 1000 acres on Spring Creek (a tributary of Shoulderbone Creek) that he sold in 1795. He, or more likely his son John Cook, Jr., participated in the militia in Hancock County when he moved there as Captain, Vol. Rifle Company, 1st Batt. Hancock Co. Regt., Militia.

Capt. John COOK died in Hancock County, Georgia in 1798 and is buried in Island Creek Church Cemetery, 32 degrees, 12 minutes, 29 seconds W lat, 83 degrees, 10 minutes, 59 seconds W long, 16 miles WSW from Sparta, Georgia in Hancock County although I could not find his headstone. His will seems to be missing from the Hancock County Will Book but his estate papers are present where they are indexed at AA page 7-10, AA page 119-121, and AAA page 63-67. See LDS microfilm #222086. John Harbirt, John Cook, and Phillip Cook, administrators of the estate of John Cook dec'd. and John Ragan posted a security bond for L 3000 sterling 5 June 1798. His estate inventory, done 6 July 1798, shows John Cook's estate to be worth $7103.73, excluding land. He owned 19 slaves and the normal plantation and household equipment. The exception was his library, which was larger than most and contained primarily religious works. [John COOK died intestate. RLD]

John Cook's biography appears in "Biographical Dictionary of South Carolina Representatives", Vol. 3, page 151-152 and is as follows: "John Cook lived near Cedar Creek in what became Fairfield County, South Carolina. He owned at least 300 acres, and in the Federal Census of 1790 recorded 33 slaves as his property. as a young man, he was involved in the Regulator movement (1767-69) in the backcountry and on 31 October 1771 was pardoned for his vigilante activities in a general decree of King George III. Service in the House was limited to election to the seventh (1787-1788) and Eighth (1789-1790) General Assemblies by the District between the Broad and Catawba Rivers. Representing Fairfield County at the State Convention, Cook voted against ratification of the Federal Constitution (1788). Other offices held by him include tax inquirer and collector for St. Marks Parish (1765) and for the District between the Broad and the Catawba Rivers (1785) and Militia Captain (1781). John Cook was deceased by 29 September 1802 when Philip Cook applied for letters of administration of his estate.

A John Cook received grants (1771-1786) for 1190 acres located in separate tracts near the Congaree and Broad Rivers. Most of this area became Richland County. There could have been another John Cook living in Richland County or the Fairfield and Richland landowners could have been one and the same. However, no direct tie could be made between the Richland grants and the John Cook who served in the House. The additional land was not included in his sketch."

*John COOK's daughter Martha Pearson COOK married Levi DANIELL, son of James DANIELL, in 1794 in Hancock County, Georgia.

Additional sources and information:

John and two of his brothers, Drury and Benjamin, moved to North Carolina, with John later moving again to South Carolina before 1767 and after the death of Betty. He recorded three land purchases, 300 acres on McCord's Ferry Road on 12 Sep 1770; 50 acres at the Head of Back Swamp bounded by lands of Nathan CENTER and John TAYLOR; and 100 acres on Dry Branch, on the road leading to Richard ADAMS', and the path from John COOK to Philip PEARSON, and bounded by John CARSON and Robert GOODWYN on 11 Mar 1773. (A History of Richland County South Carolina, Green)

The History of Hancock County, Georgia, II, p. 136, provides:
"John Cook, some years before the Revolution, moved to South Carolina and settled on the Broad River at what was later called "Cook's Ferry." He married in Brunswick County, Va., before coming to South Carolina, his wife being Miss Betty Brown. He married her September 6, 1759. At this time he was not 21 years of age as he is spoken of in the marriage bonds as "Infant," with the consent of Henry Cook, his father. By this first marriage there were three children who lived to be grown and married; one son and two daughters.
John COOK was a Captain in the Revolutionary War; was in the 4th Continental Dragoons, He was with Colonel William WASHINGTON in his South Carolina campaigns. His second wife was Martha PEARSON (daughter of Captain John PEARSON and his wife, Mary RAIFORD.), who whom he was married in 1772. The noncombatants were treated so cruelly in Carolina during the period of the Revolution that John COOK's family, along with relatives and friends, fled to North Carolina, where they remained until the close of the war, when they returned to South Carolina. After some eight years, John COOK moved to Georgia, where he settled upon the "Bounties" given to him as reward for his patriotism. He died in Hancock County in 1799. In Georgia histories he is spoken of as being very old at the time of his death, but he certainly could not have been very old as he was not of age in the fall of 1759." [Note: Born about 1740 and died in 1798 would make him about 58 at his death. RLD]

John may have had additional land in Richland County. Land records for John COOK in South Carolina are difficult to interpret as there are several John COOKs and even one other Captain John COOK in the records, although most are before 1759, while our John was in Virginia. He married Martha Ann PEARSON in 1772 in Broad River, South Carolina. Martha PEARSON was a daughter of Mariner John PEARSON and his wife Mary RAIFORD. John and Martha had at least 10 children.

In the Revolutionary War, John COOK fought in South Carolina and participated in the battles of Eutaw Springs, Cowpens, and Guilford Courthouse (History of the Revolution in South Carolina, Salley, page 44). Bobby Gilmer Moss, in " Roster of South Carolina Patriots During the American Revolution" also quotes Sally but has him as Captain under Lt. Col. Robert GOODWYN and Col. RICHARDSON in 1778.

"Military Service Revolutionary War Captain and Patriot, 2nd Regiment, SC Infantry: John COOK, patriot, during the entire Revolutionary War served as a Captain of the cavalry under Col William WASHINGTON. Because the Tories plundered and harassed the Cook family, they were forced to be refugees in the Waxhaud* Settlement of South Carolina. After the war, John COOK and his family returned to their home on Broad River South Carolina where his wife Martha PEARSON died leaving several children. John COOK then moved to Hancock County Georgia and married for a third time."

Abraham GINDRAT of Craven County, South Carolina in his Will dated 19 February 1785 bequeathed "And to Cap. John COOK's Son Nathan COOK six breading [sic] Cattle and fifteen Guineas..."

In 1787 John COOK was elected to the South Carolina Legislature for two terms, serving from 1787 to 1790. In 1788, John was a representative of Fairfield County to the South Carolina Constitutional Convention. He voted against ratifying the new Constitution, a sentiment likely popular with the voters in the upcountry as they had done without any government locally, a state government that had ignored them, and an oppressive British rule. His vote is recorded in the convention records: Friday, May 23, 1788: Fairfield County. -- Nays: James CRAIG, Jacob BROWN, John GRAY, John COOK. 4. On motion, Resolved, That this Convention do assent to and ratify the Constitution agreed to on the 17th day of September last, by the Convention of the United States of America, held at Philadelphia. On the question being put to agree to the same, the yeas and nays were called for by the unanimous voice of the Convention, and are as follows: Two hundred and twenty-two representatives attended the session, with 140 voting in favor and 73 voting against. The resolution was adopted by a majority of 67 votes.

John COOK is listed in the 1790 Census of Camden Distrtict, Fairfield County, South Carolina with 4 males under 16, 7 females, and 33 slaves. His son Burrill COOK and family lived two households away.

John COOK, Sr. and John COOK, Jr. witnessed the July 4th, 1794 deed recording the purchase of 287.5 acres of land on Rock [Rocky?] Creek by Philip COOK from John Liddell DIXON.

John COOK's father was Henry COOK of Brunswick County, Virginia according to a record from the Georgia Department of Archives and History, Atlanta, GA." This record does not have a name for its originator, but does cite reference locations.

CONFLICTING INFORMATION on Capt. John COOK's children:
ADDENDUM: Theophilis COOK, 1788 - 1858, is listed by some as a son of Capt. John COOK and Martha Ann PEARSON. However, George J. Ferris, gjfarris@aol.com, has placed several "Post 'em Note" rebuttals on webpages where Theophilis COOK is named as a son of Capt. John COOK and Martha Ann PEARSON:
2005-06-20 15:32:22: "The Theopholus Cook (1788 - 1858) of Jefferson County, IL was not one of the children of John Cook and Martha Pearson. He was born in GA, not SC - and the mother of Theophilus and Robert Cook as well as of the three Robertsons of Jefferson Co. was well known as Lucy (probably nee Lucinda Phillips) who was still living in that county in 1830. The erroneous claim that Theophilus was a son of Capt. John Cook was originally made as part of a DAR application (that was rejected). The person who originally made that claim acknowledged the error long ago - but it has lived on - despite the lack of any legitimate supporting evidence!"
Also, 2005-06-21 09:40:41: "I would be interested in seeing any source documentation for including Theophilus Cook (1788-1858) as a son of John Cook and Martha Pearson. This does not correlate with his records in TN and Jefferson County, IL - where his mother (Lucy) lived and was well known - and wasn't Martha Pearson. If the connection to Capt. John Cook is based on the statement by Lenna Smith in her 1960 summary, she later acknowledged, in her research notes, that it was an error and was incorrect." This reference is to the History of Belle Rive and Dahlgren, Illinois And Surrounding Territory, Continental Historical Bureau of Mt. Vernon, Illinois, December, 1960, p. B-12, written by Lenna Smith and Mrs. Ed Page.

General Notes: Wife - Martha Ann PEARSON

"Baptism after 1750" by Rev. John Ulrich Giessendanner provides:
"242 (1754 -- Baptized -- At Saxagotha -- At the - House of Mrs Elizabeth Mercier)- Edem Die et Loc (The same day and place)- Martha, Daughter of John & Mary PEARSON; born Novr 7th 1751. Susceptr. John HANDASYD, Ann, wife of- Nathaniel PARTRIDGE, & Mary, wife of William HAY" ( (in English) numbered as in Salley, http://www.xs4all.nl/~sail/orange/b240b246.html, showing a digital copy of the page.)

The Bible of John PEARSON of Camden, Fairfield County, South Carolina, transcribed in North Carolina - South Carolina Bible Records by Jeannette Holland Austin, records the birth of Martha Ann PEARSON as 7 November 1754. A. S. Salley, in the History of Orangeburg County, page 150, has her baptism 6 October, 1754, a month before Edwin Green in A History of Richland County gives the date of her birth. Green has her death in 1796, but it is not listed in the transcription of John's Bible. John and Martha COOK were living in Hancock County Georgia in 1796. She may be buried with her husband at Island Creek Cemetery, Hancock County, Georgia. The Giessendanner record above appears to settle the differences in transcriptions.

Martha Ann Pearson was born November 7, 1751 in Craven County, South Carolina. Her birth date was recorded in the baptismal records of Rev. John Ulrich Giessendanner. (The 1754 year for her birth may be from a misread of the number 1 written in an old style.)
Martha Ann was the second wife of John Cook. John was a widower with 3 young children, Burrill, Mary, and Sarah by Elizabeth Brown. John and Martha married about 1769 and had nine children: Elizabeth C. "Betsy", John, Jr., Grace, Phillip, Nathaniel Pearson, Martha Pearson, Patience, Henry, and Isaac Cook.

This excerpt of the Will of Martha Raiford Goodwyn lists the husband of her sister Mary Raiford as Phillip Pearson, indicating Capt. John P. Pearson was John Phillip Pearson.
"WILL Bk. TT 1774-1778 Pg. 268 Will of Martha GOODWYN of Craven Co. SC. lists on [sic, one?. RLD] daughter Martha EPPS. and sister Mary PEARSON, wife of Phillip PEARSON. Further lists Joseph REES, SR., Martha BOND under age. It also lists Martha epps GOODWYN as underage. Extr: John HOPSKINS: Issac RIVERS" [http://www.genealogyforum.com/gedcom/gedcom4a/gedr4104.ged]

The family is recorded in the 1790 census of Fairfield County, South Carolina. Not long after, they moved to Captain John Cook's Revolutionary War bounty lands in Hancock County, Georgia. Martha Ann died in Hancock County in 1796 and was buried in Island Creek Cemetery. Martha's and John's headstones were removed from Island Creek Cemetery before it was submerged in 1954 by the damming of the Oconee River between Hancock and Baldwin Counties, Georgia to create Lake Sinclair. Their headstones are now located in Shiloh Church Cemetery Old, Jenkinsville, Fairfield County, South Carolina, John's son Burell [sic] Cook is buried. A cenotaph at Find A Grave Memorial# 75888878 has a picture of Martha Ann's headstone. A note on this memorial citing "Fairfield County Cemeteries, Vol. 1, pg. 69" says the headstones were moved because of flooding by Lake Monticello, South Carolina, but Lake Monticello was not created until 1978.

On Find A Grave Memorial# 75888878 is a picture of Martha Pearson Cook's headstone located in Shiloh Church Cemetery Old, Jenkinsville, Fairfield County, South Carolina. The memorial notes that "Per the book Fairfield County Cemeteries Vol 1 pg 69: her stone was moved to Shiloh Methodist Cemetery because of Lake Monticello." It does not list where she is buried.

Obituary and Death Notice: Lawrence Cook Sr., son and grandson of secretaries of state
QUITMAN, Ga. - Lawrence D. Cook Sr. of Atlanta, whose father and grandfather were Georgia secretaries of state and who lost a race for the office himself, died Wednesday at the Presbyterian Home here. He was 83. Mr. Cook had been in the nursing home since January, after a year and a half at another nursing home in Atlanta, according to a family member. The funeral was today at Oglethorpe Hill with burial at Westview Cemetery.
Mr. Cook's grandfather, Philip Cook, was a Confederate brigadier general, a U.S. congressman from 1875 to 1883, and Georgia's secretary of state from 1890-94. Cook County in south Georgia was named for him in 1918. The deceased's father, also named Philip Cook, was Georgia's secretary of state from 1898 to 1918.
Their grandson and son tried to keep the office in the family but lost a bid for the Democratic nomination for secretary of state in 1936. John B. Wilson won re-election that year. "Dad was a very shy and rather retiring person," said his son, Lawrence D. Cook Jr. of Atlanta. "He said the longest speech he made that year was in a crowded elevator in Waycross, Ga." After his try at politics, Mr. Cook operated an Atlanta insurance agency from 1939 to 1970.
Lawrence Douglas Cook was born Sept. 27, 1902, in Atlanta, and graduated from Boys High School. He was an Army veteran of World War I and received a law degree from the University of Georgia in 1923. He belonged to the Georgia Insurance Association, Surety Association of America, and the now-defunct Meninac Club, for "men in action." He also was at various times a charter member and elder of two Presbyterian churches, Trinity and Northwest. His wife, Mrs. Martha Steffner Cook, died at age 81 on Dec. 8. Surviving in addition are another son, G. Philip Cook of Alpharetta; two daughters, Mrs. Carolyn Lightcap of Villa Rica and Mrs. Julianne Ashmead of Lafayette, Calif.; a sister, Mrs. Minnie Tyler of Roswell; 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

He was married in 1875 to Mrs. Peel who was Miss Luck [sic, Lucy] Cook, daughter of Gen. Phil Cook of Washington. Surviving Colonel Peel besides Mrs. Calhoun are two other daughters, Mrs. William H. Kiser, of Atlanta, and Mrs. Stephen B. Watts of Chatlottesville, Va. Colonel Peel was a Shriner and a prominent club man in addition to his membership in numerous civic and welfare oganizations.

General Notes: Wife - Lucy Marion COOK

Lucy Marion COOK, daughter of Brig. Gen. Philip COOK and Sarah George LUMPKIN, was born 13 November 1849 on her father's plantation in Schley County, Georgia. She graduated from Wesleyan Female College at Macon, Georgia and served as president of the Alumnae Association for many years afterwards.

Lucy married William Lawson PEEL on 22 April 1874. They moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1876. He is named in some records as William Lawrence PEEL.

Narragansett Peir Notes, Special to the New York Times, August 12, 1907, Narragansett Pier, R. I., Aug. 11 -"At a dinner given by Mrs. A. V. Tilt of New York the guests included Mr. and Mrs. William A. Tilt, Mr. and Mrs. B. B. Tilt, Mrs, William Lawrence Peel, and Miss Peel of Atlanta, Ga." ["Mrs. William A. Tilt" was formerly Sarah Elizabeth Peel and "Miss Peel" was Marion Peel, daughters of Mrs. William Lawrence Peel. RLD]

A biography of Mrs. William Lawrence PEEL is contained in the "Historical Collection of the Georgia Chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution", 1926, a work "Dedicated to the Memory of Mrs. William Lawrence Peel." Lucy was Founder and first Regent of the Joseph Habersham Chapter of Atlanta, Ga., Honorary State Regent of Georgia, Originator of and first Chairman of the National Committee of Real Daughters, and former Vice President General of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. "She was the first to lead the Georgia D.A.R. into definite lines of historical work."

Lucy Cook PEEL died 16 February 1923 in Atlanta, Georgia. From the Atlanta Journal, February 1923: "The death of Mrs. William Lawson PEEL takes away one of Georgia's most remarkable women. For nearly half a century, she has been an active factor in the social and civic life not only in Atlanta but of the State. She was in every way a most remarkable woman. Possessing indomitable energy, she was ever ready to throw the tremendous driving force of her personality back of any movement in which she was interested. Her will and determination thrust aside all obstacles standing in the way of the end sought. She made up her mind what she wanted to do, outlined her program, and did it. Her achievements were such as to often surprise the public in completing undertakings that seemed impossible of fulfillment. Her life was a direct illustration of the truth of the adage, 'Where there is a will, there is a way.'"

General Notes: Husband - Levi DANIELL, Esq. RS-SC

Levi DANIELL, born 21 December 1759, was a son of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia. James migrated to South Carolina circa 1754, and dropped the O' from his name, spelling it DANIELL. Levi's birth is recorded in a transcription published in the The History of Hancock County, Georgia, referencing an old Bible "which originally belonged to James DANIELL". Levi is the only son of James known to have a male descendant line.

Levi DANIELL was born in South Carolina and moved to Hancock County, Georgia after the Revolutionary War. There is some confusion as to his birth date as his daughter's Bible has him born in 1769 (too young to be a soldier in the Revolution), but his father's Bible has him born in 1759 which groups him in with his other siblings and makes him old enough to have served in the Revolutionary War. Levi was "a true patriot" per his obituary and is believed to have served in South Carolina, but his service record has not been found. "Levi Daniel 12/21/1769 11/1800" is named on page 316, Volume 1 of "Georgia Revolutionary War Soldiers' Graves", compiled by H. Ross Arnold, Jr. & H. Clifton Burnham. c. 1993 by the Georgia Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Levi died in 1800, but a Levi DANIEL drew in the 1805 Georgia land lottery as a veteran; if our Levi, it would have been for his orphans but "orphans of" is not indicated. [http://www.1805georgialandlottery.com/d.shtml] Levi's father, James DANIELL, older than militia age, provided Public Service to the Continental Army and his sister was married to Captain James TAYLOR of Richland, South Carolina. It would be surprising if Levi did not serve along side his in-laws and cousins known to have served. Comments by James L. Haynsworth in the article "ORGANIZATION OF SOUTH CAROLINA'S REVOLUTIONARY ARMY" add credence to Levi's service despite the lack of a record found: "On June 6, 1775 the Provincial Congress of South Carolina (later to become the General Assembly) ordered 2 regiments of foot and one regiment of cavalry raised for the protection of the province. The first two regiments were recruited and officered, for the most part, be residents of Charlestown and its vicinity. (See ALL IN THE FAMILY on page 3). Command of the two regiments was given to Christopher Gadsden and William Moultrie. The third regiment, called "Rangers", was commanded by Col. William Thomson and was recruited primarily from the area around Orangeburg. In November, 1775 a regiment of artillery was raised, and command was given to Lt. Col. Owen Roberts. Soon it became necessary to enlist still more troops, and in February, 1776 two additional regiments of "expert riflemen" were raised and were commanded by Thomas Sumter and Isaac Huger. At the same time, two more units of the artillery regiment were organized at Georgetown and Beaufort, commanded by Capt. Paul Trapier and Capt. William Harden. On September 14, 1776 these six regiments were taken onto the Continental establishment; that is, they became a part of the regular army or "Continental Line" which had been organized by the Continental Congress. The South Carolina militia was composed of some 10 regiments of troops, each representing a geographical area in the state. All adult males were subject to militia service, and were called up periodically. They served for a specified period of time and went home. The militiamen, who were part-time soldiers., correspond to the National Guard or Reserves of today, while the Continental troops, who enlisted for a specified number of years, or for the duration of the war, served continuously and correspond to our regular army." (THE CAROLINA HERALD, Volume 2 Number 3 Summer 1973, the quarterly newsletter of the South Carolina Genealogical Society)

Levi's younger life in South Carolina, education, and service record are a mystery. He moved to Hancock County, Georgia with his father and many neighbors when the new Indian lands were opened up and granted to Revolutionary War veterans, about 1790. His homestead was on Island Creek, a short distance off the Oconee River. His neighbors included his father and stepmother, James and Nancy DANIELL, his future in-laws, Captain John COOK and his wife Martha, and John HARBIRT (executor of Levi's will) and his wife Sarah, all from Fairfield County, South Carolina. In 1794, the tax record lists him as one of only 18 people in the county with 15 of more slaves. He also acquired land around Shoulderbone Creek and in 1796, paid taxes for lands in both Lewis' and Sanford's districts.

The 1794 Tax Roll for Hancock County, Georgia, page 52, lists James DANIEL, 47 slaves, 862 1/2 acres on Island Creek, tax paid $17.07, and 300 acres at Oconey Swamp in Washington County tax paid $3.55 and a quarter cent. Levi was listed beside his father, one slave, no land and taxed 62 and 1/2 cents. Separately, Levi is named on page 69, with 169 acres adjoining John RAGAN on Island creek. His tax was 1 pound, 18 shillings, 4 pence. Ten years earlier this creek was listed as EILAND creek: "GOULSBY, Jonathan. 287 acres, Washington Co., bounded N. Wm. MORGAN, E. & S. vacant, W. Jno. RAGAN. Cut by Eiland creek, survey 257. Nov. 8, 1784, p. 131."

On 11 September 1796, Levi married Martha Pearson COOK. In 1797, his father James DANIELL died, leaving a large estate to Levi and his siblings. On 10 Dec 1800, Levi died at age 41, only two days after making his will and only four years after his marriage to Martha Pearson COOK. He leaves three children under three years of age and a twenty-three year old widow. (Tuck Wilson)

The only known indication that Levi may have been a "Dr." is in this comment referring to a Texas DAR Index appended to the Revolutionary War record of Levi's father-in-law:
Georgia Revolutionary Soldiers, Sailors, Patriots, & Descendants, Vol I by Mary Carter 929.3758 C324G:

The History of Hancock County, Georgia, page 138, records three children named in Levi DANIELL's Bible:
Jesse Daniell Austin....Sept. 9, 1794
James Daniell Austin..July 11, 1797
Caty Daniell Austin....March 4, 1799
Note: James and Caty were not AUSTIN. Levi and Martha were married two years after Jesse was born. Levi names his children, James, Catherine, and Juliett in his LW&T dated 8 December 1800. Jesse Daniell AUSTIN, living, was not named."my grandson Jesse Daniell AUSTON, son of Betty AUSTON", as named in his grandfather's LW&T, was Levi's nephew. The Austin surname was apparently carried down for Levi's children as well.

The 1794 Tax Roll for Hancock County, Georgia, page 52, lists James DANIEL, 47 slaves, 862 1/2 acres on Island Creek, tax paid $17.07, and 300 acres at Oconey Swamp in Washington County tax paid $3.55 and a quarter cent. Levi was listed beside his father, one slave, no land and taxed 62 and 1/2 cents. Separately, Levi is named on page 69, with 169 acres adjoining John RAGAN on Island creek. His tax was 1 pound, 18 shillings, 4 pence. Ten years earlier this creek was listed as EILAND creek

These land records are found in the work of Helen and Tim Marsh, LAND DEED GENEALOGY OF HANCOCK COUNTY, GEORGIA, 1997, Southern Historical Press, Inc., Greenville, SC, pp. 92, 136, 156, 230, 241, 279.": "Hancock County, Georgia, Deed Book B, p. 356: 20 April 1796. Jesse CONNEL of Hancock county to Levi DANIEL of the same place for the sum of one hundred and twenty five dollars for a tract of land in Hancock County containing two hundred acres, being part of a tract originally granted to John BRYANT dated 17th May 1784 for four hundred and sixty acres.

Levi DANIELL, along with Joseph DENSON and Hubert REYNOLDS, witnessed the Will of Thomas HARBIRT, Sr. written 2 April 1797. Levi, John HUMPHRIES, and Mat KINCHIN appraised the estate as well. John (Jr.), George and Thomas HARBIRT were executors of this will, and John HARBIRT, Levi's neighbor, would later be an executor of Levi DANIELL's estate.

On April 6, 1799, Levi DANIELL, along with Matthew HOWELL, were named administrators of the estate of Jose DANIELL, Levi's brother, in Richland County, South Carolina. Recorded in Will Book C, page 233. (Edwin L. Green in "A History of Richland County South Carolina" with and added note of "Cf Book D, pg. 75")

Levi's father died before 5 May 1798 when his Will was proven. In it, James DANIELL wrote:
"I give and bequeath to my son Levy DANIELL twenty five Negro slaves (Viz) Toby, Sampson, Simon, July, Cato, Flory, Hannah, John, Mary, David, Will, Rose, Elick, Seller, Moses, Joe, Dan, Jack, Milly, March, Sinthy, Vamer, Old Tom, dino? Harriatt, and two feather beds furniture. Also one half of the Tract of Land I now live on the whole of which contains three bounties. Also, I lend him the use of half of a tract of land lying on the Oconey River in Washington County During the time of Eighteen years."
"I Give and bequeath unto my son Levi DANIELL after the Death of My Wife the ballance of the three bounties Whereon I now live and that half of the stock that I lent my Wife during her life."

Hancock County Will Book AA page 36-39 records: January 3rd 1799. "Then received of William HARDWICK, Jr. as executor of James DANIELL decd twenty five Negroes, stock of every kind and all my legacy that was will'd to me by said James DANIELL decd. I also received of said HARDWICK six hundred and sixty seven dollars on approved account which money was paid out of money belonging to the estate of said James DANIELL decd. Given under my hand this 3rd day of January 1799. Levi DANIELL". Also: "We do certify that we have in our hands the balance of the money that was left in the house and has been collected after takin out the account of Levi DANIELL. Given under our hand. Levi DANIELL Nancy DANIELL".

An abstracted obituary of Levi DANIELL from "Marriages and Deaths, 1763-1820" by Mary Bondurant Warren, from extant Georgia newspapers, page 27, reads: "DANIELL, Levi, Esq, d. at his seat at Hancock Co. 12/10/1800, wife and children, "a true patriot". Augusta Chronicle 12/27/1800.

Hancock County, Georgia, Deed Book E, p. 74. I, Mat KINCHEN of Hancock County for the sum of five hundred dollars paid by David CLEMENTS of same place for two negro boys named Harry and Wyley. Wit: Hubt. REYNOLDS and Levi DANIELL, J. P. Reg: 18th February 1801." Note: This deed was recorded after Levi's death on 10 December 1800. Levi served as a Justice of the Peace for Hancock County until his untimely death.

The Will of Levi DANIELL, 1801 Hancock County Will Book AAA page 37, was provided by Tuck Wilson:
In the name of God Amen I Levi DANIELL of the State of Georgia and the county of Hancock, being at this time in a low state of health, but of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make and ordain this to be my last will and testament in manner and form following (Viz) I lend unto my beloved wife Martha DANIELL during her natural life one hundred and fifty acres of land, including the dwelling house and premises whereon I now live on Island Creek to be laid off on a square adjoining a dividing line that may be hereafter run between my step-mother Nancy DANIELL's and myself, agreeable to my father's will, and to adjoin the lands of John HARBIRT, and also I lend to my said wife during her natural life the following Negroes (to wit) Abby, Ivey, Lucy, March, Sam, Friday, George, Flora the younger, and Maggy, and after my wife's decease, it is my will and desire that the said land and Negroes be equally divided between my three children hereinafter named.

Signed, sealed, pronounced, and declared in the presence of
John LAMAR
Stephen HORTON Levi DANIELL
Phillip COOK
Georgia, Hancock County - the forgoing will proven in open court and ordered to be recorded this 5th day of January 1801.
M. GREENE CCO

(Note: Executor, Robert McGINTY, and witnesses, John LAMAR and Stephen HORTON, are members of the Island Creek Baptist Church, as was Levi's father, James, and step-mother Nancy. Phillip COOK is Levi's brother-in-law.).

At a Court of Ordinary, January 5, 1801, letters testamentary were granted to Robert McGINTY and John HARBIRT to carry into effect the Will of Levi DANIELL. Thomas LAMAR, John RAGAN, Henry LOW, & Lazarus BATTLE were appointed to appraise the estate.

The estate records of Levi DANIELL are very interesting and revealing. The estate was kept "open" for many years, operating like a business, providing money for the food, clothing, and education of the very young minors. The slaves bequeathed to the children were rented out annually for a good bit of money and other slaves worked the farm. Levi DANIELL must have had a very prosperous farm that kept producing for the estate as it sold hundreds of bushels of corn and thousands of pounds of cotton. It sold brandy, cornmeal, and even rented smithy tools. I suspect that Levi had a store that sold these things and that he got it from his father. Both died with many people owing them small (and large) amounts of money, as if the DANIELLs were extending credit. Levi had 57 accounts and notes of people owing him money at the time of his death. There is much in the Hancock County Will Books documenting all this. see AAA page 36-38, AAAA page 73, E page 126,146,151, F page 200.

The way the money was spent is even more interesting. Every penny was accounted for and much of Hancock County Guardian Book B is filled with this. Levi's children were boarded, well educated, and well dressed.

Here are two estate accounting reports of the estate of Levi DANIELL. Apparently, the estate was left open until the children were either married or 21 years old. The slaves of the children were hired out and the farm paid out for the raising and education of the children and it was highly profitable. (Tuck Wilson)

Baldwin Co. and Hancock Co. are separated by a river. It could be that the Levi DANIELL land was on both sides of the river. There were several acres in the tax digest listed for him in Baldwin County. It could be that they moved across the river into Baldwin Co. There are a few DANIELLs in Baldwin Co., also. In fact in 1810 the tax roll lists James, Catherine, Juliette, and Levi, dec'd. on the Tax List for Capt. GUNNS District. There is no 1810 Census for Baldwin Co., because that census was destroyed by the British in 1812. As a result, the Tax List is the next best thing to determine who was in the county at that time. In Capt. HILL's District there is a William DANIELL, as yet unidentified. In Baldwin County's 1820 Census there is a Jesse DANIEL. Jesse is most likely Jesse Daniell Austin DANIEL, grandson of James DANIELL, d. 1798. I think Washington, Greene, Hancock, and Baldwin counties were where our Levi DANIELL family lived. Levi's grave has not been located but it was probably in the now destroyed DANIELL Cemetery, along with his father James, on Mrs. Tallulah West's place on Island Creek. (Teresa Griffis)

Levi's widow, Martha Pearson COOK, remarried to Levi's cousin John (Jack) DANIEL who was living in Hancock County. Jack became the guardian of Levi DANIELL's children. There is a suggestion that he and Martha also became the guardian of Levi's sister, Betty Daniell Austin's child (Jesse Daniell AUSTIN). Jack and Martha then had six of their own. (Tuck Wilson) 3414


General Notes: Wife - Martha Pearson COOK

Martha Pearson COOK was born 27 March 1777, her father was Captain John COOK and her mother his second wife Martha Ann PEARSON. She was raised on their homestead, Cooks Ferry, on the Broad River in what is now Fairfield County, South Carolina. Sometime after 1790, the COOK family moved to her father's bounty lands in Hancock County, Georgia.

Martha married Levi DANIELL in 1796 and bore him three children, James Levi, Catherine B., and Juliet Anna, before Levi died in 1800 at age 40, leaving Martha a widow at 23 with three children under the age of four.

Levi DANIELL bequeathed, ... "To my beloved wife Martha during her natural life, 150 acres land including the dwelling house and premises wheron I now live on Island Creek, to be laid off on a square adjoining a dividing line that may be hereafter run between my stepmother Nancy DANIELL an myself agreeable to my father's will, and to adjoin the lands of John HARBIRT. I also lend to my wife Negroes Abby, Ivey, Lucy, March, Sam, Friday, George, Flora the younger, and Maggy. After my wife's death the land and Negroes to be equally divided between my three children hereinafter named. ..."

After two and a half years as a widow, Martha remarried to Levi's cousin, John (Jack) DANIEL in 1803, making her Martha Pearson COOK DANIELL DANIEL. Martha had eight more children by Jack. They took in one of Levi's nephews, Jessie Daniell AUSTON who legally changed his name to Jessie DANIELL in 1807.

Martha was widowed again in 1827 when John was thrown from his horse and killed. She was left with their five youngest children still between 5 and 17 years old.

John DANIEL provided for Martha in his will: "It is my will and desire that all the Negroes of which I may be possessed, together with every other species of personal property should be kept together upon my two plantations, vis, the plantation on which I now live, and ___ Mill (?) place for the natural benefit of my wife and children,...And it is further my said desire that both my said plantations should be kept in good repair for cropping whether rented or not; and the particular profits arising from crops shall be applied to the use of my wife and the caring and education of my children share and share alike...and desire that when my wife marries or any of my children arrive at the age of twenty one years or marry, they or either of them upon the happening of such event shall be entitled a distributive share of my whole personal estate..."

The Hancock County census of 1830 (Series: M19 Roll:18 Page 151) line 21 shows Martha DANIEL, 50-60 (age 53), with 2 males 10-15 (Levi Lawrence David and Benjamin Franklin Bell), two males 15-20 ( John William and unknown), one male 20-30 (unknown), one female 15-20 (Carolyn Grace) and 55 slaves. Benjamin may have been marked in the 15-20 box and the second male 10-15 may then have been Martha's grandson, Levi Cake, who is not enumerated in his fathers' household, listed same page line 7.

In 1835, Martha's son, James Levi DANIELL moved his family to Russell County, Alabama. Martha, some of her children by Jack, and a number of Hancock County neighbors moved to Glennville, Russell County, Alabama about the same time. On November 2, 1835, on a motion, the Hancock County Court of Ordinary ordered that Arthur J. BUTTS, Henry GAREY, James W. SIMMONS, Benjamin HARPER, and William BUTTS are appointed Commissioners to lay off and set apart to Caroline DANIEL her distributive share of the estate of her father and report their proceedings to the Executor. Martha DANIEL, widow, requested that her name be added to this motion. The Court so ordered.

Martha died September 9, 1842 in Barbour County, Alabama. (This part of Barbour County later became Russell County.) She is buried in Ivey Cemetery, Glennville, Russell County, Alabama near her son and daughter-in-law, James Levi DANIELL and his wife, Elizabeth Clements BUTTS. Martha's headstone is broken off at it's base, still in place, and lies on the ground. It reads:

In
memory of
MARTHA P. DANIELL
who died
Sept. 9, 1842,
in the 65th year
of her age.
----------------------------------------
"Blessed are the dead which die in
the Lord, that they may rest from
their labors and their works do
follow them."
-------------------

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 there, he in 2001 and she in 1993. The good sized 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. There is room in it for numerous unmarked graves. 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)

Ivey Cemetery is mentioned in the Marie Godfrey cemetery compilation (1960's) as: "8. cemetery on MITCHELL place, west of Glennville Plantation", also referring to it as the "IVY Family cemetery." She lists the following graves there:
DANIELL, Jas. L. ? July(?) 1797 Hancock CO, GA 14 April 1846 age 48 years, 9 mo 3 days

General Notes: Husband - John DANIEL, Esq.

John DANIEL, called Jack, was a son of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL. In the "History of Hancock County Georgia", Jack DANIEL was said to be a cousin of Levi DANIELL. John's middle name is said by some to have been "Furman", a middle name used in his brother William DANIEL's family, but no record yet supports this for John.

SC Archives: Series Number: S213190 Volume: 0032 Page: 00553 Item: 01 Date: 1796/02/01 Description: DANIEL, John, Plat for 500 Acres on Mine and Dry Creeks, Edgefield County, Ninety Six District, Surveyed by William DANIEL. Names Indexed: DANIEL, John/DANIEL, William/SHURLEY, Absalom/MELLON, Benjamin/WINSER/WATSON, Arthur/Locations: Mine Creek/Dry Creek/Little Saluda River/Edgefield County/Ninety Six District. This Plat for John DANIEL may be a gift to him by his father, William DANIEL.

In 1803, probably in Hancock County, Georgia, John DANIEL married Martha Pearson Cook DANIELL, widow of his cousin, Levi DANIELL. Martha had three children under the age of 7 from her marriage to Levi.

John and Martha DANIEL had eight additional children of their own, while also raising Levi's three orphans and "Jesse Daniell AUSTON, son of Betty AUSTON", another cousin and grandson of Levi's father, James DANIELL.

John "Jack" DANIEL? Fortunate Drawers in the land lottery. Louisville, August 26...Hancock County,... John O. DANIEL [The Augusta Chronicle, Augusta, Georgia, Saturday, September 19, 1807, Page 1]

John DANIEL is mentioned numerous times in the Inferior Court and Ordinary Court Minutes for Hancock County in which his name is frequently spelled as both DANIEL and DANIELL. He served as a Justice of the Peace. On January 6, 1809, he took a deposition from proving a deed between Willie ABERCROMBIE and John HERBERT. In 1810, he was "appointed overseer of the road leading from Charles McDONNAL's to CARRS"; and in 1825 was granted his petition "to lay out & straighten & keeping in repair a road at his own expense from the ten mile post on the road leading from Sparta to Milledgeville near Hubbard FERRELL's, by his mills to the Baldwin County line."

James Levi DANIELL, orphan of Levi DANIELL, chose John DANIELL, his step-father, 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.

When Juliet DANIELL, the third and youngest orphan of Levi DANIELL, came of age to chose her guardian, she also chose John DANIEL. John gave his bond and security in the sum of $12,000 to be appointed Juliet DANIELL's guardian.

John DANIELL, also George RIVES, Tully CHOICE, James BUTTS, and Simmons BUTTS, was appointed an appraiser of the estate of Joseph THORP in 1815. Later, he, together with Baxter SMITH, James SIMMONS, Benjamin SANFORD, & George RIVES, was also an appraiser for the estate of James EASTER.

In April 1816, John had requested letters of administration for intestate portions of the last will and testament of James DANIELL, father of his three wards; however, William HARDWICK Jr., executor of James' estate presented caveats to the court and prevented issuance of the letters when the court ruled that "an executor...has the sole power and authority to administer upon the intestate part of the estate as well as upon the testate." John appealed this decision. The appeal apparently failed because in 1824, James L. DANIELL also applied for letters of administration de bonis non against William HARDWICK on the estate of James DANIEL, dec'd.

Published in the Georgia Journal, Milledgeville, Georgia, Wednesday, December 11, 1816, Page 3: "On Monday the 30th of this instant, will be hired at my plantation on Island creek, the negroes belonging to the heirs of Levii Daniel, deceased; and all persons that are in arrears for the hiring of said negroes will do well to make payment by that day. JOHN DANIEL, Guard'n. Hancock county, Dec. 9."

About 1817, in regards to the estate of Henry A. GENDRATT, John DANIELL, an Uncle of the intestate, objected to letters of administration being issued to Jeremiah SANFORD and John G. LUMSDEN because they were not related to Henry GENDRATT and Jeremiah was about six hundred dollars in debit to the estate. John's wife, Martha, Aunt of Henry and daughter of John COOK, grandfather of the said GENDRATT, was his kin and John therefore requested executorship of the will.

General Notes: Wife - Martha Pearson COOK

Martha Pearson COOK was born 27 March 1777, her father was Captain John COOK and her mother his second wife Martha Ann PEARSON. She was raised on their homestead, Cooks Ferry, on the Broad River in what is now Fairfield County, South Carolina. Sometime after 1790, the COOK family moved to her father's bounty lands in Hancock County, Georgia.

Martha married Levi DANIELL in 1796 and bore him three children, James Levi, Catherine B., and Juliet Anna, before Levi died in 1800 at age 40, leaving Martha a widow at 23 with three children under the age of four.

Levi DANIELL bequeathed, ... "To my beloved wife Martha during her natural life, 150 acres land including the dwelling house and premises wheron I now live on Island Creek, to be laid off on a square adjoining a dividing line that may be hereafter run between my stepmother Nancy DANIELL an myself agreeable to my father's will, and to adjoin the lands of John HARBIRT. I also lend to my wife Negroes Abby, Ivey, Lucy, March, Sam, Friday, George, Flora the younger, and Maggy. After my wife's death the land and Negroes to be equally divided between my three children hereinafter named. ..."

After two and a half years as a widow, Martha remarried to Levi's cousin, John (Jack) DANIEL in 1803, making her Martha Pearson COOK DANIELL DANIEL. Martha had eight more children by Jack. They took in one of Levi's nephews, Jessie Daniell AUSTON who legally changed his name to Jessie DANIELL in 1807.

Martha was widowed again in 1827 when John was thrown from his horse and killed. She was left with their five youngest children still between 5 and 17 years old.

John DANIEL provided for Martha in his will: "It is my will and desire that all the Negroes of which I may be possessed, together with every other species of personal property should be kept together upon my two plantations, vis, the plantation on which I now live, and ___ Mill (?) place for the natural benefit of my wife and children,...And it is further my said desire that both my said plantations should be kept in good repair for cropping whether rented or not; and the particular profits arising from crops shall be applied to the use of my wife and the caring and education of my children share and share alike...and desire that when my wife marries or any of my children arrive at the age of twenty one years or marry, they or either of them upon the happening of such event shall be entitled a distributive share of my whole personal estate..."

The Hancock County census of 1830 (Series: M19 Roll:18 Page 151) line 21 shows Martha DANIEL, 50-60 (age 53), with 2 males 10-15 (Levi Lawrence David and Benjamin Franklin Bell), two males 15-20 ( John William and unknown), one male 20-30 (unknown), one female 15-20 (Carolyn Grace) and 55 slaves. Benjamin may have been marked in the 15-20 box and the second male 10-15 may then have been Martha's grandson, Levi Cake, who is not enumerated in his fathers' household, listed same page line 7.

In 1835, Martha's son, James Levi DANIELL moved his family to Russell County, Alabama. Martha, some of her children by Jack, and a number of Hancock County neighbors moved to Glennville, Russell County, Alabama about the same time. On November 2, 1835, on a motion, the Hancock County Court of Ordinary ordered that Arthur J. BUTTS, Henry GAREY, James W. SIMMONS, Benjamin HARPER, and William BUTTS are appointed Commissioners to lay off and set apart to Caroline DANIEL her distributive share of the estate of her father and report their proceedings to the Executor. Martha DANIEL, widow, requested that her name be added to this motion. The Court so ordered.

Martha died September 9, 1842 in Barbour County, Alabama. (This part of Barbour County later became Russell County.) She is buried in Ivey Cemetery, Glennville, Russell County, Alabama near her son and daughter-in-law, James Levi DANIELL and his wife, Elizabeth Clements BUTTS. Martha's headstone is broken off at it's base, still in place, and lies on the ground. It reads:

General Notes: Husband - John I. HERBERT, CSA

John I. HERBERT married Martha Pearson COOK.

1860 U.S. Census, Alabama, Wilcox County, Rehoboth P O; Series: M653 Roll: 26 Page: 1066: 356 393 J. Q. [as indexed, I.] HERBERT 31 M Farming 3500 10,600 AL; M. P. HERBERT 26 F AL; P. W.? HERBERT 8 M AL; R. C. HERBERT 6 M AL.

"4. John I. Herbert married Patty Cook; issue: Philemon Waters, who never married; he died January, 1898, in Texas. Cook, another son, is married, has a family and lives at Conroe, Texas.
John I. Herbert inherited the fighting nature so prominent in the family. When Lopez organized in the United States bis filibustering expeditions to seize Cuba, he at once attached himself to the desperate venture and shared in all of the dangers of that ill-fated enterprise. No true and full account of Lopez's invasions of Cuba is to be found in the histories of the United States. In the sketch of John P. Waters, cousin to John I. Herbert, we have attempted a brief historical account of Lopez and his band. J. I. Herbert enlisted early in the war between the Forth and South in the Southern army, and gave his life for the "lost cause." He was taken prisoner at Island No. 10, and long languished in a Northern prison. He was exchanged, but died before reaching his home." [A Genealogical History of the Waters and Kindred Families, Compiled by Philemon Barry Waters & Herbert M. Milam, Atlanta, Georgia, Foote & Da Vies Co., 1903, p. 148.

In 1870, Martha is head of household in Butler County, Alabama.

Isaac is buried in Lakeside Terrace Plot, Rose Hill Cemetery, Macon, Bibb County, Georgia. A picture of his family tomb is on Find A Grave Memorial# 20687242 created by graveelady on Jul 29, 2007:

ISAAC WINSHIP
1802 - 1885

Isaac's is an interesting tombstone, appearing to also be the entrance to a family mausoleum in the side of a hill. Eight sets of names and dates are on it. At the top is Isaac, followed by his wife, Martha Pearson Cook. Six more sets of names and dates are below Martha, not all legible in the photograph at Find A Grave.
Instructions to the tomb: "To reach this tomb, go down the river entrance steps, then go to the right around the steps, and carefully follow the creek upstream. This tomb is in the side of the hill, quite aways up. be careful, snakes are known to be in this area. This tomb is across the creek from the more famous tombs of the Ziegler and Washington families."

[Compiler's note: Martha is the daughter of Major Philip Cook, who named her after his mother and his sister, my 3rd great-grandmother, Martha Pearson Cook, who married Levi Daniell in Hancock Co., Ga. on 11 Sep 1796. RLD]

On March 21, 2010, Marsha Brockman replied to my query about the grave stone:
"Robert, Sadly, this stone has been vandalized repeatedly with spray paint, and has been under water as well due to flooding from the Ocmulgee River in 1984.The cemetery association has had it cleaned, but the shadows of the paint remain. I have been unable to read the names clearly. It is in need of repair. It is actually a hillside barrow. Mausoleums were not allowed in Rose Hill at the time, and several tombs set in the side of hills are there. The section this tomb is located in is rather difficult to get to, as it means walking along one side of a creek that flows through a small "valley" in the cemetery, then attempting to cross the creek to the side this particular tomb is located on, as there is no steps left on that side of the creek. The small "bridge" has crumbled apart. Snakes abound, and some sort of ground cover makes it impossible to see them in Spring and Summer. The only alternative is that the names may show up better under a grave rubbing", but I don't think that would show much more that the naked eye. This area has been a popular place for teenagers to party in at night, and some of the tombs (not the Winship that I know of) have been broken into. The photo I took was about as well as I could do. I actually blew it up on the computer and tried to read the names, but not all were legible. Rose Hill Cemetery has been vandalized since Union troops camped out there during the Yankee occupation of Macon, and it never stopped. Gang markings with spray paint are harder to repair than the scratches left by soldiers all those years ago. This once glorious outdoor museum continues to be desecrated by hoodlums. Marsha Brockman"


General Notes: Wife - Martha Pearson COOK

Martha Pearson Cook was the daughter of Major Philip Cook and Anna Martha Wooten and a granddaughter of South Carolina Revolutionary War Soldier, Capt. John Cook and Martha Ann Pearson. She was born in Fort Hawkins, Indian Territory, Georgia, on Oct. 8, 1813 and said to be the first white child born in what is now Macon, Bibb County, Georgia. She was named for Philip's sister, Martha Pearson Cook, widow of Levi Daniell of Hancock County, Georgia.
"Here at Fort Hawkins on October 8, 1813, was born the first white child born in what is now Macon. She was Martha Pearson COOK, daughter of Major Phil COOK, Macon's much beloved Mrs. Isaac WINSHIP." [History of Macon, the first hundred years, p. 15]
[Compiler's note: Martha was named for Philip's sister, Martha Pearson Cook, my 3rd great-grandmother, who married Levi Daniell in Hancock Co., Ga. on 11 Sep 1796. RLD]

At the tender age of 14 on May 1, 1828, Martha married Isaac Winship, age 26, in Bibb County. They had eleven children: Capt. Emory Winship, C.S.A.; Laura Ellen; Anna Eliza; Martha Angelina; Mary Cook; Ida Louise; Sarah Irene; Emily Lavina; Victoria Comer; Isaac Phillip, and Nathaniel Robertson Winship.

In 1860, Martha and family lived in Atlanta, Georgia. During the War Between The States, Martha organized the first military hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. After the war, Isaac and Martha returned to Bibb County where she died in 1882.

Martha was the President of the Ladies Memorial Association which erected the life-sized standing angel monument that watches over the Confederate dead in Stonewall Cemetery, Griffin, Spalding County, Georgia. The monument was dedicated on August 27, 1869. The Ladies Memorial Association later became the Boynton Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, named for Colonel James Stoddard Boynton, C.S.A., who was the principal speaker at the dedication.

"Mrs. Isaac Winship organized the first military hospital in Atlanta." [NURSE HEROINES OF THE CONFEDERACY, Mary Louise Marshall, Librarian, Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, La., p. 333]

"The friends and acquaintances of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Winship and family are invited to attend the funeral of Mrs. Isaac Winship from Mulberry street Methodist Church at 9:30 o'clock this morning." [The Macon Telegraph, Macon, Georgia, Tuesday, June 13, 1882, Page 3.]

Tributes of Respect To the Memory of Mrs. Isaac Winship and Rev. R. F. Jackson
"On June 11th, 1882, Mrs. Isaac Winship died at her son's residence, in this city, aged 69 years. Mrs. Winship was for years the true friend of our dead soldiers, and all the soldiers of the dead Confederacy..." [The Macon Telegraph, Macon, Georgia, Tuesday, July 11, 1882, Page 4]

Martha is buried in the Winship family tomb in Lakeside Terrace Plot, Rose Hill Cemetery, Macon, Bibb County, Georgia. A picture of the Winship family tomb is on Find A Grave Memorial# 20687295:

General Notes: Husband - HYRON

CONTROVERSY: Was Mary COOK married three times? The History of Hancock County, Georgia, Smith, p. 137, provides that Mary COOK was married three times, her husbands named as HYRON, HUTCHISON, and HEBERT, colonels of the Revolutionary War, but no Col. HYRON(S)/HIRON(S) has been found by this compiler. Mary COOK was about 20 years old when she married Col. Thomas HUTCHINSON before 1783. This marriage date is based on the birth of her son Simon Harrell HUTCHISON on 7 Oct 1783. A Simon HIRONS and Grace RAIFORD, his wife and widow, resided in the Congarees area of South Carolina where Capt. John COOK and his family lived. Simon died 25 September 1778, leaving three sons: John, b. 14 Nov 1753, m. Martha Ann PARTRIDGE, d. Dec 1802; William b. 29 Apr 1758, m. Mary _____, d. before 16 July 1785; and Simon, b. 1 Feb 1776, too young to have been Mary COOK's husband. Edwin L. Green in his A History of Richland County South Carolina, states on p. 97 that William HYRONS was a private who served 64 days in 1781 and 36 days in 1782 in Col. Thomas TAYLOR's regiment in South Carolina. William HIRONS died intestate in Richland County, South Carolina before 16 July 1785 when his wife, Mary HIRONS [maiden name not known] became administrix of his estate. (A History of Richland County South Carolina, Green, p. 214) Recall that Mary COOK had been married to Col. HUTCHSON about three year before this. It is unlikely that this William HIRONS was MARY COOK's first husband. The 1785 date above conflicts with her marriage to Thomas HUTCHINSON before 1782, unless Mary did not apply for administration of HIRONS' estate until after she remarried. If that is so, why was she not named as Mary HUTCHINSON, her then remarried name?


General Notes: Wife - Mary COOK

Mary COOK, born cir 1762, Brunswick County, Virginia, daughter of Capt. John COOK and Elizabeth BROWN, is named as a Pioneer of Butler County, Alabama, listed there in the 1830 census on page 282c. Her husbands are listed as: "1)Thomas Hutchinson 2) John? Herbert" (http://theusgenweb.org/al/butler/pioneers/hutchinson/hutch.html)

CONTROVERSY: Was Mary COOK married three times? The History of Hancock County, Georgia, Smith, p. 137, provides that Mary COOK was married three times, her husbands named as HYRON, HUTCHISON, and HEBERT, colonels of the Revolutionary War, but no Col. HYRON(S)/HIRON(S) has been found by this compiler. Mary COOK was about 20 years old when she married Col. Thomas HUTCHINSON before 1783. Their son Simon Harrell HUTCHISON was born 7 Oct 1783. A Simon HIRONS and Grace RAIFORD, his wife and widow, resided in the Congarees area of South Carolina where Capt. John COOK and his family lived. Simon died 25 September 1778, leaving three sons: John, b. 14 Nov 1753, m. Martha Ann PARTRIDGE, d. Dec 1802; William b. 29 Apr 1758, m. Mary _____, d. before 16 July 1785; and Simon, b. 1 Feb 1776, too young to have been Mary COOK's husband. Edwin L. Green in his A History of Richland County South Carolina, states on p. 97 that William HYRONS was a private who served 64 days in 1781 and 36 days in 1782 in Col.

Mary COOK, John HERBERT's widow, was the sister of Sarah COOK, John's first wife.

Notes:
Information Sources:
1 Thomas Hutchinson's grandson, John Herbert Hutchinson, gave his version of his family history at his 90th birthday celebration as reported in his obituary published in the Houston Chronicle, Vol. 26, No. 253, Thursday, June 23, 1927.
2 The Wade Family Bible located at the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH) contains a list of the children of Thomas and Mary Hutchinson. Their first child recorded there was born 7 April 1783. That child's name is difficult to read from the photocopy I have, but it appears to be Vinson or Winson Harell???(a son).
3 Thomas Hutchinson made his will 31 October 1818, and died the next day. His probate package is found in Box No. 16, Package No. 389 of the Richland County, SC Probate Court, as obtained from the South Carolina Department of Archives and History. The will itself was recorded in Record Book G, page 86 ff. in Richland County, SC. Burrell Brown Hutchinson appeared before the Probate Court to request that his mother, Mary Hutchinson be named his guardian, and at that time Burrell stated that his father, Thomas Hutchinson died on 1 November 1818.
4 Although I have never found a document clearly stating that Mary Hutchinson's maiden name was Cook, a strong circumstantial argument for that conclusion can be made. Thomas and Mary Hutchinson lived in Richland County, SC, while the Cook family lived in Fairfield County, yet Thomas Hutchinson conducted much of his business with the Cooks. The two families witnessed for each other. John Cook was married to Betty Brown, daughter of Burrell Brown. Thomas Hutchinson administered the estate of Burrell Cook, decd., and went to court to fight one of Burrell's daughters for the guardianship of Burrell's minor children. The contacts go on and on. Anyone interested may contact me for specific details.
5 John Cook and Betty Brown took out a marriage bond in Brunswick County, VA on 27 September 1759. At that time, John Cook was under 21, and his father, Henry Cook, gave permission for him to marry. Various wills from Brunswick County, VA prove that the marriage actually took place, and the couple's son, Burrell Cook was born before 3 February 1762 (will of Mary Urvin Brown Wall, Burrell Cook's grandmother). Daughters Sarah and Mary were born after that time.
6 Mary Hutchinson married a man named Herbert by 22 September 1821 from BLM Old Tract Book Patent Entry records, page 138 for Butler County, AL, and while there is no one single document that proves her husband was John, a strong circumstantial case can be made for this assertion. John Herbert had land adjacent to Mary and Burrell Brown Hutchinson as early as 1817. John Herbert moved to Butler County by about 1818 from Jones County, GA. John Herbert was married to Sarah Cook (died before 1806 in Hancock County, GA), Mary's sister, and he was the only Herbert male living in the area who was of an age to have married Mary. When John Herbert died (by 8 November 1826 from notice of administration printed in the Alabama Journal, Montgomery, AL Vol. II, No. 3 Friday, November 17, 1826), Mary's son Burrell Brown Hutchinson, along with John's son Thomas Herbert, acted as administrators of John's estate. Burrell also married John Herbert's daughter, Amanda M. F. Herbert, whom John had with his second wife, Delitha Stanton? Tyson (widow of Job Tyson). Burrell and Amanda named their first son John Herbert Hutchinson. I can provide more details to anyone who might be interested.
7 All children of Mary and Thomas Hutchinson, as well as their dates of birth are from the Wade Family Bible located at ADAH. Spouses of Rebecca and Mary H. Hutchinson are from the will of Thomas Hutchinson (see above). Spouse of Burrell Brown Hutchinson from various sources including wills of both Amanda and Burrell filed in Washington County, TX, death certificate of John Herbert Hutchinson, filed in Austin, Texas, census records of Washington County, Texas, and others. I can provide details to anyone who might be interested.

General Notes: Wife - Mary COOK

Mary COOK, born cir 1762, Brunswick County, Virginia, daughter of Capt. John COOK and Elizabeth BROWN, is named as a Pioneer of Butler County, Alabama, listed there in the 1830 census on page 282c. Her husbands are listed as: "1)Thomas Hutchinson 2) John? Herbert" (http://theusgenweb.org/al/butler/pioneers/hutchinson/hutch.html)

CONTROVERSY: Was Mary COOK married three times? The History of Hancock County, Georgia, Smith, p. 137, provides that Mary COOK was married three times, her husbands named as HYRON, HUTCHISON, and HEBERT, colonels of the Revolutionary War, but no Col. HYRON(S)/HIRON(S) has been found by this compiler. Mary COOK was about 20 years old when she married Col. Thomas HUTCHINSON before 1783. Their son Simon Harrell HUTCHISON was born 7 Oct 1783. A Simon HIRONS and Grace RAIFORD, his wife and widow, resided in the Congarees area of South Carolina where Capt. John COOK and his family lived. Simon died 25 September 1778, leaving three sons: John, b. 14 Nov 1753, m. Martha Ann PARTRIDGE, d. Dec 1802; William b. 29 Apr 1758, m. Mary _____, d. before 16 July 1785; and Simon, b. 1 Feb 1776, too young to have been Mary COOK's husband. Edwin L. Green in his A History of Richland County South Carolina, states on p. 97 that William HYRONS was a private who served 64 days in 1781 and 36 days in 1782 in Col. Thomas TAYLOR's regiment in South Carolina. William HIRONS died intestate in Richland County, South Carolina before 16 July 1785 when his wife, Mary HIRONS [maiden name not known] became administrix of his estate. (A History of Richland County South Carolina, Green, p. 214) Recall that Mary COOK had been married to Col. HUTCHINSON about three year before this. It is unlikely that this William HIRONS was MARY COOK's first husband. The 1785 date above conflicts with her marriage to Thomas HUTCHINSON before 1782, unless Mary did not apply for administration of HIRONS' estate until after she remarried. If that is so, why was she not named as Mary HUTCHINSON, her then remarried name?

Mary COOK, John HERBERT's widow, was the sister of Sarah COOK, John's first wife.

Mary Cook Hutchison Herbert and extended family are in a cluster in Butler County, Alabama in the 1830 census.

Notes:
Information Sources:
1 Thomas Hutchinson's grandson, John Herbert Hutchinson, gave his version of his family history at his 90th birthday celebration as reported in his obituary published in the Houston Chronicle, Vol. 26, No. 253, Thursday, June 23, 1927.
2 The Wade Family Bible located at the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH) contains a list of the children of Thomas and Mary Hutchinson. Their first child recorded there was born 7 April 1783. That child's name is difficult to read from the photocopy I have, but it appears to be Vinson or Winson Harell???(a son).
3 Thomas Hutchinson made his will 31 October 1818, and died the next day. His probate package is found in Box No. 16, Package No. 389 of the Richland County, SC Probate Court, as obtained from the South Carolina Department of Archives and History. The will itself was recorded in Record Book G, page 86 ff. in Richland County, SC. Burrell Brown Hutchinson appeared before the Probate Court to request that his mother, Mary Hutchinson be named his guardian, and at that time Burrell stated that his father, Thomas Hutchinson died on 1 November 1818.
4 Although I have never found a document clearly stating that Mary Hutchinson's maiden name was Cook, a strong circumstantial argument for that conclusion can be made. Thomas and Mary Hutchinson lived in Richland County, SC, while the Cook family lived in Fairfield County, yet Thomas Hutchinson conducted much of his business with the Cooks. The two families witnessed for each other. John Cook was married to Betty Brown, daughter of Burrell Brown. Thomas Hutchinson administered the estate of Burrell Cook, decd., and went to court to fight one of Burrell's daughters for the guardianship of Burrell's minor children. The contacts go on and on. Anyone interested may contact me for specific details.
5 John Cook and Betty Brown took out a marriage bond in Brunswick County, VA on 27 September 1759. At that time, John Cook was under 21, and his father, Henry Cook, gave permission for him to marry. Various wills from Brunswick County, VA prove that the marriage actually took place, and the couple's son, Burrell Cook was born before 3 February 1762 (will of Mary Urvin Brown Wall, Burrell Cook's grandmother). Daughters Sarah and Mary were born after that time.
6 Mary Hutchinson married a man named Herbert by 22 September 1821 from BLM Old Tract Book Patent Entry records, page 138 for Butler County, AL, and while there is no one single document that proves her husband was John, a strong circumstantial case can be made for this assertion. John Herbert had land adjacent to Mary and Burrell Brown Hutchinson as early as 1817. John Herbert moved to Butler County by about 1818 from Jones County, GA. John Herbert was married to Sarah Cook (died before 1806 in Hancock County, GA), Mary's sister, and he was the only Herbert male living in the area who was of an age to have married Mary. When John Herbert died (by 8 November 1826 from notice of administration printed in the Alabama Journal, Montgomery, AL Vol. II, No. 3 Friday, November 17, 1826), Mary's son Burrell Brown Hutchinson, along with John's son Thomas Herbert, acted as administrators of John's estate. Burrell also married John Herbert's daughter, Amanda M. F. Herbert, whom John had with his second wife, Delitha Stanton? Tyson (widow of Job Tyson). Burrell and Amanda named their first son John Herbert Hutchinson. I can provide more details to anyone who might be interested.
7 All children of Mary and Thomas Hutchinson, as well as their dates of birth are from the Wade Family Bible located at ADAH. Spouses of Rebecca and Mary H. Hutchinson are from the will of Thomas Hutchinson (see above). Spouse of Burrell Brown Hutchinson from various sources including wills of both Amanda and Burrell filed in Washington County, TX, death certificate of John Herbert Hutchinson, filed in Austin, Texas, census records of Washington County, Texas, and others. I can provide details to anyone who might be interested.

General Notes: Husband - Colonel John HERBERT

A Revolutionary War service record: "HARBIRT, John. Fifteen days as horseman at Congarees and forty-two days as footman at Orangeburgh under Col. [Thomas] TAYLOR." A record for John's father, Lt. Thomas HARBIRT is also listed here. [Green's "History of Richland County South Carolina, p. 96]

John HARBIRT married Sarah COOK, daughter of Capt. John COOK of Fairfield County, South Carolina.

John HARBIRT is named in the 1790 census of Fairfield County, South Carolina, "1 1 3 - -." [Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 157] He is believed to be the same John HARBIRT later found in Hancock County, Georgia living as neighbor of Capt. John COOK, James DANIELL, and others from Fairfield District, South Carolina who also claimed Revolutionary War bounty land there.

John HARBIRT and his brothers are named in the 2 April 1799 LW&T of their father, Thomas HARBIRT of Hancock County, Georgia: "Item give and bequeath to my sons John, George, and Thomas HARBIRT, one tract of Land containing two hundred and twenty - six acres Lying on Town Creek. And also sixteen Negroes (Viz. Peter, Cloe, Jack, Hannah, Vilet, Jacob, Bob, Hal, Sam, Reuben, Chaney, Ellis, Big Sam, Siller, Peter, Salley) to be equally divided between them..." This Will was witnessed by Levi DANIELL, the son of James DANIELL from Fairfield County, South Carolina.

Deed Book F (1802 - 1803), pp. 124 - 125 \emdash John and Sarah HARBIRT to Robert CHAMBERS \emdash 250 acres on Town Creek, and butting and bounding South Eastwardly by Robert CHAMBERS and unknown land; North West by John Winslett's land; North Eastwardly by John Ragan's land, and South Westwardly by John HARBIRT's land. Beginning at a pine and Running East 33 Chains to a Hickory Corner; thence N 5 33.50 to a Stake Corner; Thence S 45 E 53 Chains to a Pine Corner; Thence S 45 W 67 chains to a pine Corner; thence N 30.5 W to a stake corner and thence N 45 E to the beginning. Being part of a tract containing five hundred and fifty Acres granted to John HARBIRT the Second day of December in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine.

"October 15, 1801 Georgia Gazette: Elections of Members of the General Assembly on Monday the 5th instant. For Hancock County: Henry MITCHELL, Esq., Senator. David ADAMS, John HARBIRT, and Boling HALL, Esq's, Representatives. [http://www.georgiagenealogy.org/hancock2/news%201795%20-%201819.html]

"...at some point (don't remember exact year) while John HERBERT was still in GA, he published an announcement in the newspaper explaining that he had for many years been known as "HARBIRT" but going forward would be "HERBERT." He said that his father had originally been "HERBERT" but over the course of years had drifted away from the family and the name had gradually changed to "HARBIRT." Sounds like he wanted to reconnect at least by name with his family." [Alexis Spiritas, 3/10/2009]


General Notes: Wife - Mary COOK

Mary COOK, born cir 1762, Brunswick County, Virginia, daughter of Capt. John COOK and Elizabeth BROWN, is named as a Pioneer of Butler County, Alabama, listed there in the 1830 census on page 282c. Her husbands are listed as: "1)Thomas Hutchinson 2) John? Herbert" (http://theusgenweb.org/al/butler/pioneers/hutchinson/hutch.html)

CONTROVERSY: Was Mary COOK married three times? The History of Hancock County, Georgia, Smith, p. 137, provides that Mary COOK was married three times, her husbands named as HYRON, HUTCHISON, and HEBERT, colonels of the Revolutionary War, but no Col. HYRON(S)/HIRON(S) has been found by this compiler. Mary COOK was about 20 years old when she married Col. Thomas HUTCHINSON before 1783. Their son Simon Harrell HUTCHISON was born 7 Oct 1783. A Simon HIRONS and Grace RAIFORD, his wife and widow, resided in the Congarees area of South Carolina where Capt. John COOK and his family lived. Simon died 25 September 1778, leaving three sons: John, b. 14 Nov 1753, m. Martha Ann PARTRIDGE, d. Dec 1802; William b. 29 Apr 1758, m. Mary _____, d. before 16 July 1785; and Simon, b. 1 Feb 1776, too young to have been Mary COOK's husband. Edwin L. Green in his A History of Richland County South Carolina, states on p. 97 that William HYRONS was a private who served 64 days in 1781 and 36 days in 1782 in Col. Thomas TAYLOR's regiment in South Carolina. William HIRONS died intestate in Richland County, South Carolina before 16 July 1785 when his wife, Mary HIRONS [maiden name not known] became administrix of his estate. (A History of Richland County South Carolina, Green, p. 214) Recall that Mary COOK had been married to Col. HUTCHINSON about three year before this. It is unlikely that this William HIRONS was MARY COOK's first husband. The 1785 date above conflicts with her marriage to Thomas HUTCHINSON before 1782, unless Mary did not apply for administration of HIRONS' estate until after she remarried. If that is so, why was she not named as Mary HUTCHINSON, her then remarried name?

Mary COOK, John HERBERT's widow, was the sister of Sarah COOK, John's first wife.

Mary Cook Hutchison Herbert and extended family are in a cluster in Butler County, Alabama in the 1830 census.

When John Herbert died (by 8 November 1826 from notice of administration printed in the Alabama Journal, Montgomery, AL Vol. II, No. 3 Friday, November 17, 1826), Mary's son Burrell Brown Hutchinson, along with John's son Thomas Herbert, acted as administrators of John's estate. Burrell also married John Herbert's daughter, Amanda M. F. Herbert, whom John had with his second wife, Delitha Stanton? Tyson (widow of Job Tyson). Burrell and Amanda named their first son John Herbert Hutchinson. I can provide more details to anyone who might be interested.
7 All children of Mary and Thomas Hutchinson, as well as their dates of birth are from the Wade Family Bible located at ADAH. Spouses of Rebecca and Mary H. Hutchinson are from the will of Thomas Hutchinson (see above). Spouse of Burrell Brown Hutchinson from various sources including wills of both Amanda and Burrell filed in Washington County, TX, death certificate of John Herbert Hutchinson, filed in Austin, Texas, census records of Washington County, Texas, and others. I can provide details to anyone who might be interested.

Nathan Burrell Cook
Faithful Educator; Superintendent of the Escambia County Public School System(1884-1912)
Submitted by John Appleyard
Nathan Burrell Cook was born in Lowndes County, Alabama, in 1835. Following training as a pharmacist, he served in the Sixth Alabama Regiment, Company M, during the War Between the States, and he saw action in the Virginia campaigns. Following the war he married Miss Sallie Johnson, and the couple proudly raised four daughters and one son. Following the war Cook became deeply interested in education, saying that his wartime experiences showed him the importance of training young minds. Between 1865-1885 he was identified with his original profession but also began offering his services on a voluntary basis as a teacher. Into the 1880s the Escambia County Public School System was in its infancy, with an appointed school board and appointed superintendent. The system, created with the new state constitution of 1867, had virtually no state support and was dependent upon local property tax levies. The first several superintendents, appointed by governors, were not successful in their roles. In 1885 the new school board members (who unfortunately cannot be identified except for chairman George Hallmark) chose Cook as the new superintendent after he placed his name in nomination. That year the entire system had a budget of $5,000.
Cook recognized the need for funding, for teachers with proper training and experience, and a strong effort to bring rural students into classrooms. His recruiting brought such successful educators as Prof. John Patterson, Prof. J. B. Lockey and Prof. J. M. Tate into the system, along with Pauline Reese and the Misses Yniestra, Clubbs, Suter and McReynolds. Cook also was responsible for obtaining quality readers and textbooks for students, and for establishing a curriculum. The first high school was established during the early years of his administration.
A second high school opened ten years later.
During Cook's twenty-eight years as superintendent, he worked with board members such as A. V. Clubbs, William Fisher, Elijah Ward and H. L. Crabtree. A system of wagon transport for rural students was established, and a cooperative plan was created to bring country schools on board. In this plan parents of a given area would agree to build a one- or two-room building and provide board for a teacher if the school board would furnish the teacher. In that way the system began to expand, despite the fact that farm families would spare their children only limited months each year, times when their work on the farm would allow.
By the turn of the 20th century, in concert with state Senator W. A. Blount, Cook had gained passage of a state bill which provided that all children were entitled to free education through the 12th grade. (This was FREE, not compulsory, education.) Emphasis was made on schools and training for minority children, and Cook consistently pushed for tax reform to gain broader school funding. By 1904 the local system had 5,000 students. However, Cook remained opposed to free textbooks, feeling that children possessed a more critical interest in subjects when they actually owned their books.
Early into the new century Cook's work, abetted by board members A. V. Clubbs, Elijah Ward, and A. C. Blount, Jr., resulted in budgets which had grown to the point where better qualified teachers were receiving up to $60 per month, and the superintendent himself got $75, plus rail tickets to visit north county schools and feed for his horse for other travel.
Cook continued on, year after year. Then, in early 1912, the legislature passed a bill making the superintendent's position elective for all counties. Cook qualified as a candidate but refused to campaign, saying, "The people know me and what I stand for." His opponent was the system's bookkeeper, A. S. Edwards. Cook, by then, was 77 years old, and perhaps Edwards' youth was a factor. In any case, the challenger won, and Cook gracefully retired from the position, never to surface in public office again. He died the following year, and was interred in St. John's cemetery.
N.B. Cook is buried in St. John's Cemetery 2 North Section 21.

From the Pensacloa Business Journal (Pensacola, Florida) August 2004, Volume I, Issue No.6
"School superintendent Cook made impact in Escambia by John Appleyard
In considering the Escambia County School District historically, the career of one man stands out. This individual did much to put education on the right road, and in serving 28 years as superintendent, he established a record of tenure which has never been approached.
That man was Nathan Burrell COOK.
Florida's legislative council made basic provisions for a school system, county by county, in the early 1820s. However, there was no territorial educational authority, and all operations were left to local sources. As a result, Escambia County had - literally - no public schools in antebellum days. There were several small private schools or academies, but the majority of children who gained training were taught at home.
Following the War Between the States, a new Florida Constitution made a provision for state supervision of schools, but again much of the function remained in the hands of local citizens. There was no state funding, only land provided whose use might generate operating funds. However, in Reconstruction days such a measure provided little income. The state superintendent and governor appointed local superintendents, and thus an Escambia County system did begin, but very, very slowly in the 1870s. What classes there were, were held in rooms in private homes. Teachers, poorly paid, were difficult to find, for in that time very few women completed more than a few grades of school.
In 1885 the county enjoyed good fortune. A new board was created, which included successful business leaders P.K. YONGE, A.V. CLUBBS and A.C. BLOUNT. These men secured the appointment of N.B. COOK, who was from Alabama and pre-war was trained as a pharmacist.
By 1885 Pensacola itself had 10,000 residents, and lumbering activities had cleared much nearby land, permitting a wave of movement into family farm agriculture. That meant that many remote communities had numbers of scattered students, while in the city, schools could be established around neighborhoods. COOK and his board concentrated upon construction of neighborhood schools, and regional ones in rural areas. Often, these were one room.
In the country communities, the new superintendent encouraged families to work cooperatively to erect school buildings. With a facility in place, the board would engage a teacher if the neighbors would provide room and board. Farm families would share the chore of using their wagons to carry children to and from school.
COOK recognized the need to recruit quality teachers. His list of successful additions included professors TATE and LOCKEY, and teachers whose names would be long remembered: Annie Mae McMILLAN, A.K. SUTER, Occie CLUBBS, Allie YNIESTRA and more. COOK also pressed for school modernization and for consolidations during his tenure.
When the office became an elected one in 1912, COOK was defeated by a younger opponent. But COOK would be chosen to be both city and county voter registrar, and maintained those works until his death in May 1917."
John Appleyard, a local author and historian, founded the John Appleyard Agency.

General Notes: Husband - Nathaniel Pearson COOK

Nathaniel Pearson COOK was born about 1775, a son of Capt. John COOK and Martha Ann PEARSON.

He is known as Nathaniel P. Cook in Ervin's "South Carolinians in the Revolution. He is Nathaniel Cooke in Gillmer's " South Carolina Roster ...", page 196, serving in the light dragoons under Capt. W. M. Martin, Col. Polk, and General Sumter during 1781.

Abraham GINDRAT of Craven County, South Carolina in his Will dated 19 February 1785 bequeathed "And to Cap. John COOK's Son Nathan COOK six breading [sic] Cattle and fifteen Guineas.." Abraham's Will was witnessed by William HARDWICH and Sarah COOK. (SC Archives: Will Book A1, p. 270, Apt. 130, Pkg. 5111) Note: Capt. COOK's daughter Elizabeth was married to Henry GINDRAT.
"Nathan COOK, son of Capt. John COOK," inherits from Abraham GINDRAT in 1785, while Capt. John COOK is an executor and Sarah COOK is a witness. "Camden District SC Wills and Administrations 1770-1796" by Holcomb & Parker, page 25.

"Nathan COOK" is named in the 1798 Will of his grandmother, Mary Raiford PEARSON: 'First I give and Bequeath my Negro Wench namede Bunk to my beloved GrandSon Nathan COOK his heirs and assigns forever. Item I give & bequeath my Stock of Sheep running at Nathan COOK's, & Cow and calf Marked with John COOK's mark, to Nathan COOK his heirs & assigns forever."

William RICHARDSON of Fairfield District, South Carolina selected "Major Nathan COOK my sole Executor of this my Last will and Testament..." on 30 January 1806.

Probably the Nathan Cook that witnesses John Pearson II's will.

"It was quite an exciting day for history and quilt buffs as the "South Carolina Secession Quilt" was sold at auction in Mountain City, Georgia. Greg Peters of Golden Memories Auction Company handled the sale at his gallery, which was filled to the brim with wonderful southern furniture, artwork, baskets, and quilts for this New Year's Day 2003 auction.
Greg had been given the commission to sell the secession quilt directly from the family of the maker, Mrs. Philip Drury Cook of Fairfield County, South Carolina. The 108" X 108" quilt was made over a period of 6 months, which seems absolutely impossible. Mrs. Cook's husband was a general in the Coast Artillery of the Confederate States of America and she was left to run the plantation and raise four children in his absence during the war years. The all-white quilt is made from an unseamed piece of hand-woven cambric with a central medallion of an eagle with wings resting on cornucopias, which spill over with fruits and flowers. Much of the design is done with trapunto. The quilt also contains many names directly involved in the Carolina proslavery secession movement and four governors of South Carolina during the nullification period and the seal of the state.
The quilt itself survived the trials and tribulations of the war as it is said to have been wrapped around the family treasures and buried to protect them from Sherman's approaching army. Another beautiful floral quilt made by Mrs. Cook was not hidden and was cut into saddle blankets by Sherman's troops.
The bidding on the quilt was quick and exciting. The opening bid was $10,000 and the bids progressed in $10,000 increments until the final bid of $67,500 was hammered down, all within a minute and a half. Four of the bidders were on telephones. The buyer, a 35-year-old gentleman from Tennessee (he was raised in Greenville, SC) is a private antique collector. He is in the process of building a southern plantation home and will display the quilt in his new home.
...
The Secession Quilt was also featured in the book "Quilts in America" by Patsy & Myron Orlofsky, published in the mid 1970's.

For those who may have missed all the hype and excitement, on January 1 a rare southern quilt treasure left the family of its origin and was sold - for $74,250 (including 10% buyer's premium)!!
This was the so-called Secession quilt, made in 1860 in South Carolina. The quilt was made by Jemima Ann Thewitts (Williamson) Cook, whose husband was Philip Drury Cook, of Fairfield County. It is a linen whole-cloth quilt, 108" square, with intensive and very elaborate quilting forming all of the design. In the center is an eagle with wings spread, above which are Lady Liberty and other symbols and words pertaining to patriotism. The word "Secession" appears near the top, as well as the last name of a popular SC slave-holding secessionist. The names of 4 former governors, and the quiltmaker's husband's name, are worked elsewhere in the quilt. (Her husband was a general in the Coast Artillery, CSA). Elaborate cornucopias , vines, stars, florals and other motifs fill the design field, and are corded and stuffed. Hand knotted fringe frames all 4 sides.
Although badly treated and harshly handled during and after the Civil War, the piece survived being buried with the family silver in a wooden box in the ground, and washed repeatedly on its reemergence.
If you have access to a copy of Orlofsky, Quilts in America, the quilt is described and shown on pp. 190-193.

BIOGRAPHY
Born on July 31, 1817, in Twiggs County, Georgia; Philip Cook was the son of Virginians in Georgia. After studying at Oglethorpe University, he graduated from the law school of the University of Virginia in 1841. Until 1861, he lived in Madison County, Georgia. In early 1861, he volunteered as a private in the 4th Georgia Infantry. After being sent with the regiment to Portsmouth, Virginia, he became its adjutant . Having fought in the Seminole Wars, Cook had enough experience to help him during the regiment's Virginia Peninsula campaigns. By the end of the Seven Days' Campaign, he had obtained a position as lieutenant colonel of the regiment. After being present at the Second Battle of Bull Run and Battle of Antietam, he was promoted to colonel. Leading the 4th Georgia, he took part in the Second Battle of Fredericksburg and the Battle of Chancellorsville. He was wounded in the leg, and was cited for gallantry. After taking three months off for rehabilitation, he returned to the field, and took a leave of absence to sit in a session of the Georgia legislature. Cook took over brigade command when Brig. Gen. George P. Doles was killed at Cold Harbor in June of 1864. Cook was wounded again at the Siege of Petersburg, then fought under Maj. Gen. Stephen D. Ramseur at Cedar Creek. After his return to Petersburg, Cook was wounded a third time, this time in the arm, during an 1865 aborted Confederate attack on Fort Stedman. During the last weeks of the war, Cook was recovering in a hospital, and was captured when the area was evacuated on April 3, 1865. After General Lee's surrender, Cook moved to Americus, Georgia, where he set up a law practice and was active in politics. Serving in the US House of Representatives from 1873 to 1883, he became Georgia's secretary of state in 1890 and was part of the commission that built Atlanta's state capitol. Cook died in Atlanta, Georgia on May 21, 1894.
From "A Brief History of Cook County Georgia" (http://www.geocities.com/CapitolHill/Embassy/1221/histpj.htm#life) LIFE OF COLONEL PHILIP COOK
Philip Cook, soldier, was born in Twiggs County, Georgia, July 31, 1817. He sprang from a soldiery and distinguished lineage. His great-grandfather Cook was a wealthy citizen of Brunswick County, Virginia. His grandfather, John Cook, was a Captain in Colonel William Washington's calvary legion, and married Martha, of the noted revolutionary family of Pearsons.
His father, Major Philip Cook, 8th U. S. Infantry, who was stationed at Fort Hawkins, Ga., about 1812, wedded the gifted beauty, Anna, daughter of Major John Wooten who was killed at Fort Wilkinson in 1812.
General Cook was graduated from Oglethorpe University and began the practice of law with Zach Harmon in Forsyth, Ga., in 1841. He bought a farm in Sumter County in 1843; settled later in Lanier, and removed thence to Oglethorpe, to practice law until 1869, when he took up his residence in Americus, living there until a few years ago, where he made his home on a plantation in Lee County.
He was state representative in 1854, and state senator in 1859, 1860 and 1863. Enlisting in 1861, a private in the Fourth Georgia Infantry, he became Lieutenant, Adjutant, Lieutenant Colonel, Colonel and Brigadier. After the war he was in President Johnson's reconstruction Georgia constitutional convention; elected national representative in 1865 to the thirty-ninth congress, but excluded by political disabilities, and in 1872, 1874, 1876 and 1880, to the forty-third, forty-fourth, forty-fifth, forth-sixth and forty-seventh congresses; appointed Georgia Capitol Commissioner in 1882, and in 1890 appointed and then elected Georgia Secretary of State, which position he continued to hold up to the time of his death.
General Cook has been an excellent lawyer, heroic general, valuable legislator, and in all private relations a model citizen. His war career was signally gallant and distinguished. He won by rapid strides the splendid sobriquet of "The Old War Horse." His brave conduct carried him at one leap from Adjutant to Lieutenant Colonel.
At Malvern Hill he was badly shot through the body; and again at Chancellorsville was so desperately wounded that amputation was at one time necessary, and after four months he went to the State Senate and returned to service on crutches, having to be assisted for months into the saddle, and still never missed a battle. His brigade, with the sharpshooters of his division, led the attack on Fort Stedman, and he was badly wounded after his men had taken it, and got some distance into the Federal lines.
When Petersburg was evacuated, he was left behind disabled, and paroled four months after the war. His activity was even somewhat impaired from his wounds, when he passed away.
In Congress, while Chairman of the important committee on public building and grounds, from both houses, together with the architect of the Capitol, were appointed commissioners to erect the annex to the National Museum.
General Cook was the embodiment of manly courage, combined with strong common sense. He was married in 1842 to Miss Sarah Lumpkin, who died in 1859. He has two children, Philip Cook, Jr., and Mrs. Lucy Peel, an intellectual and social leader of Atlanta society.

Obituary:
DEATH OF GEN. PHIL COOK
Gen. Phil Cook, secretary of state, died very sudddenly Monday morning at ? o'clock at the home of his daughter Mrs. Peel, in Atlanta. He took a violent cold Saturday but was at his work all day. Saturday night he was at the table with his family and ate a hearty supper. About midnight he summoned his daughter and seemed in great pain, breathing with great difficulty. Before a physician could reach his bedside he was dead. Gen Cook was born in Twiggs Co. in 1817. In 1846, he came to Schley Co.(then Sumter) and taught school at Pondtown.
He was married to Miss Lumpkin, a sister of our townsman Mr. Jno. Lumpkin and lived for several years at what is now known as the Seay place, about a mile from Ellaville. The old house is still standing, surrounded by stately magnolias. Gen Cook was one of the bravest men in battle and he carried upon his body many scars. He took part in all the principal battles engaged in by the Army of Virginia and was always at the head of his command. Georgia did not turn against this brave son in his old age and he died in office with honors clustering thick around him. His remains were interred at Rose Hill Macon by the side of his wife.

General Notes: Husband - Major Phillip COOK

"Some GA Co. Records, Vol. I" by Rev Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr., Southern Historical Press, 1977, p. 87, shows the presence of Philip COOK and his family in Hancock County, Georgia as early as July 4th, 1794, when Philip COOK purchased of 287.5 acres of land on Rocky Creek in Hancock County from John Liddell DIXON. Philip's father and brother, John COOK, Sr. and John COOK, Jr. witnessed the deed.

Page 96 of the source above shows in Hancock County, Georgia Wills and Estates, that Philip Cook was born in 1775 at Cook's Ferry, Broad River, Fairfield District, South Carolina. He was a son of Revolutionary War Soldier, Capt. John Cook and Martha Ann Pearson. Philip, his father, and others family members migrated to Hancock County, Georgia before July 4th, 1794, when Philip Cook purchased of 287.5 acres of land on Rocky Creek in Hancock County from John Liddell Dixon. Philip's father and brother, John Cook, Jr. witnessed the deed.

"Some GA Co. Records, Vol. I" by Rev Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr., Southern Historical Press, 1977, p. 87, shows the presence of Philip COOK and his family in Hancock County, Georgia as early as July 4th, 1794, when Philip COOK purchased of 287.5 acres of land on Rocky Creek in Hancock County from John Liddell DIXON. Philip's father and brother, John COOK, Sr. and John COOK, Jr. witnessed the deed.

On 5 June 1798, Philip Cook, John Cook (Jr.), and John Harbert were the administrators of the estate of Capt. John Cook. John Regan was Security, with a bond for 3000 lbs Sterling. ["Some GA Co. Records, Vol. I" by Rev Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr., Southern Historical Press, 1977, p. 96]

In Hancock County, Phillip Cook witnessed the 8 Dec 1800 will of Levi Daniell, husband of his sister, Martha Pearson Cook. [Hancock County, Georgia Wills and Estate Records, page 6]

By 1810, Philip was the sheriff of Baldwin County when he carried out the sentence of the court in the "The Ducking of a Scold." recorded by Leola Selman Beeson. "An old woman, the annoyance of her neighborhood in town, was tried before Judge (Peter) Early(of the Ocmulgee Circuit) and sentenced to be ducked. The sentence was executed by lashing her to a stock fastened to a gig which was run out from a flat into the river. Major Phil Cook, the Sheriff, executed the judgment of the court. The impression on my memory of this event is very clear, but the ducking did not abate the nuisance." [History stories of Milledgeville and Baldwin County by Leola Selman Beeson, Macon, Ga.; J.W. Burke Co., 1943, p. 14]

"The new chapter [of United States Daughters of 1812] was named for Major Philip Cook because of his distinguished service in the 3rd Regiment at Fort Hawkins during the 1812 period. Fort Hawkins was then an outpost of civilization in Georgia where only Indian tribes inhabited lands west of the Ocmulgee River. Captain Cook became the Commander of the Fort in 1812. The 3rd Infantry had 73 men stationed there on 6 Jun 1812. On August 15, 1813, Cook was promoted to Major and in November 1814, there were 210 officers and men serving under Major Cook. Cook commanded the 8th U.S. Infantry. It is certain that Major Cook was commandant at Fort Hawkins at least as late as Nov 16, 1814, and he was probably still in command until his discharge on June 15, 1815." [Source: Major Philip Cook Chapter U.S.D. OF 1812 Minutes, 1944]

"Fort Hawkins - Wilderness Stronghold" says that COOK commanded the "8th U.S. Infantry" and "In November [1814] an army of 2,500 militia were mustered in at the fort" by him.

Major Cook's family resided with him in Fort Hawkins. In 1813, his wife, Anna "Nancy" Martha Wooten, gave birth to their first child, Martha Pearson Cook, said to be the first white child born in the territory which would become Bibb County in 1822. About 1815, Philip and family moved to Twiggs County, Georgia. Among his and Anna's children are Mary Lawrence in 1815, Philip Cook, Jr., in 1817, and John Raiford Cook in 1822. Of his daughters, Martha Pearson married Isaac Winship from Massachusetts, and Mary Lawrence married Dr, Creed Taylor Woodson. of his sons,Philip married Sarah George Lumpkin, and Dr. John Raiford Cook married Lavinia Adeline Hollinshead.

"Two of his sons attained distinction: Dr. John Raiford COOK, a Confederate surgeon, and [Brigadier] General Philip COOK, a gallant soldier and civilian who served Georgia on the tented field, in Congress and as Secretary of State..." His grandson Philip III was also a Secretary of State of Georgia. [Georgia's Landmarks, Memorials and Legends, Lucian Lamar Knight, p. 600]

In 1829 Major Philip Cook was appointed "Principal Keeper" of the Georgia State Penitentiary in Milledgeville, Georgia.

In 1832, Philip was widowed when Nancy died after an extended illness.

An obituary of Major Phillip Cook published 23 November 1841states "At his residence in Twiggs County, Maj. Phillip COOK in his 66th year. He held in his long and worthy life several public offices in all of which he discharged his duties with great fidelity. Nov 23, 1841."

General Notes: Husband - Colonel John HERBERT

A Revolutionary War service record: "HARBIRT, John. Fifteen days as horseman at Congarees and forty-two days as footman at Orangeburgh under Col. [Thomas] TAYLOR." A record for John's father, Lt. Thomas HARBIRT is also listed here. [Green's "History of Richland County South Carolina, p. 96]

John HARBIRT married Sarah COOK, daughter of Capt. John COOK of Fairfield County, South Carolina.

John HARBIRT is named in the 1790 census of Fairfield County, South Carolina, "1 1 3 - -." [Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 157] He is believed to be the same John HARBIRT later found in Hancock County, Georgia living as neighbor of Capt. John COOK, James DANIELL, and others from Fairfield District, South Carolina who also claimed Revolutionary War bounty land there.

John HARBIRT and his brothers are named in the 2 April 1799 LW&T of their father, Thomas HARBIRT of Hancock County, Georgia: "Item give and bequeath to my sons John, George, and Thomas HARBIRT, one tract of Land containing two hundred and twenty - six acres Lying on Town Creek. And also sixteen Negroes (Viz. Peter, Cloe, Jack, Hannah, Vilet, Jacob, Bob, Hal, Sam, Reuben, Chaney, Ellis, Big Sam, Siller, Peter, Salley) to be equally divided between them..." This Will was witnessed by Levi DANIELL, the son of James DANIELL from Fairfield County, South Carolina.

Deed Book F (1802 - 1803), pp. 124 - 125 \emdash John and Sarah HARBIRT to Robert CHAMBERS \emdash 250 acres on Town Creek, and butting and bounding South Eastwardly by Robert CHAMBERS and unknown land; North West by John Winslett's land; North Eastwardly by John Ragan's land, and South Westwardly by John HARBIRT's land. Beginning at a pine and Running East 33 Chains to a Hickory Corner; thence N 5 33.50 to a Stake Corner; Thence S 45 E 53 Chains to a Pine Corner; Thence S 45 W 67 chains to a pine Corner; thence N 30.5 W to a stake corner and thence N 45 E to the beginning. Being part of a tract containing five hundred and fifty Acres granted to John HARBIRT the Second day of December in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine.

"October 15, 1801 Georgia Gazette: Elections of Members of the General Assembly on Monday the 5th instant. For Hancock County: Henry MITCHELL, Esq., Senator. David ADAMS, John HARBIRT, and Boling HALL, Esq's, Representatives. [http://www.georgiagenealogy.org/hancock2/news%201795%20-%201819.html]

"...at some point (don't remember exact year) while John HERBERT was still in GA, he published an announcement in the newspaper explaining that he had for many years been known as "HARBIRT" but going forward would be "HERBERT." He said that his father had originally been "HERBERT" but over the course of years had drifted away from the family and the name had gradually changed to "HARBIRT." Sounds like he wanted to reconnect at least by name with his family." [Alexis Spiritas, 3/10/2009]
