Minnie Georgiana Murphy was born near Mt. Zion, Iowa June 27, 1864, and departed this life at her home in Vinita, Okl., Sunday Feb. 1, 1942, at the age of 77 years.

Mrs. Murphy joined the Mt. Zion Presbyterian church in girlhood; she was married to James F. Murphy on Sept. 21, 1892. She came with him to Vinita in 1902 and has been a faithful member of the Presbyterian church ever since. She was an elder of the church from 1931 to 1938 and taught the beginners in the church school for twenty years or more. She served as president of the Ladies Aid for thirty consecutive years from Bonaparte relatives.

Mrs. Murphy was a charter member of the order of Eastern Star, Chapter 20, of Vinita.

She was one of a family of six children, the daughter of John W. and Eliza Boner Nelson, and was preceded in death by her youngest sister, Mrs. Webb Barker of Des Moines, in 1928 and her only brother, John E. Nelson of Mt. Zion, June 1, 1936. Three sisters survive her: Mrs. Marietta Perkins, Mrs. O. S. Calhoun, and Mrs. Nelle Hootman.

The following poem was found in her diary:

Grant me this, dear Lord, to be
Strong for tasks which fall to me;
Kind, when hunger finds my door,
Brave for all that lies before;
Grateful for thy gifts bestowed.
Patient, when my pace is slowed;
Willing, when I can, to share
Burdens grim which others bear;
Gracious, when a touch of grace
May exalt the commonplace;
Gentle, always when distress
May be soothed by gentleness;
Gentle always unto thee
And the cause of liberty.

Those attending the funeral of Mrs. Murphy at Vinita, Okla., were her sister, Mrs. O. S. Calhoun, Mrs. Dirk Miller, and Claude Calhoun.

Moses "Curly Headed Mose" McClintic
Birth: Apr. 22, 1789, Bath County, Virginia, USA
Death: Aug. 8, 1856, Lewisburg, Greenbrier County, West Virginia, USA

[Note by compiler: Bath County, VA did not exist on the decedent's birth date. Bath County was formed from Augusta, Botetourt and Greenbrier Counties on 14 December 1790.]

Moses McClintic was the son of Robert McClintic and Jane Mann. He was the third child of their nine children. He was born in Bath County, Virginia April 22, 1789. On October 22, 1822, he married Margaret (Peggy) Beard, the daughter of Major Samuel Beard. (The Military Rank in the Virginia Militia). At the time of their marriage Moses was 34 years old and Peggy was 20. They were the parents of one child, Samuel who was born September 28, 1823.

Moses moved to Greenbrier County, Virginia in 1800 where his parents and four brothers and two sisters settled on a farm on Culbertson Creek near the present town of Williamsburg, West Virginia. (Greenbrier County became part of the state of West Virginia in 1863.) Moses was about 11 years old then and was known as "Curly Headed Mose" because he had dark curly hair. His boyhood was said to have been wild and reckless. At age 23 Moses volunteered as an Ensign in Captain Solomon Taylor's Company of the Virginia Militia that was taken from Lewisburg in the war of 1812. The company was under the command of Colonial William Henry Harrison in the bloody battles of Lake Erie and the Northwest. General Harrison was to later become the ninth president of the United States. While at Fort Meigs, Ohio, Moses was elevated to the rank of Lieutenant.

After his return from the war of 1812, some time after 1814, Moses entered the Lewisburg Academy as a student. The Lewisburg Academy was founded by Dr. John McElhenney, the minister of the Old Stone Presbyterian Church. The academy closed in 1861, the year the civil war began and reopened in 1865, after the war ended as Lewisburg Male School, which finally became Greenbrier Military School. While a student in Lewisburg, Moses boarded in the home of Thomas (Old Tommy) Craig. Moses became the superintendent of the Colonel John Stuart Estates at Frankford, which was about 10 miles north of Lewisburg, about 1823, the year in which Colonel Stuart died. Colonel Stuart's farms were left to his son Charles in his will. Moses remained as superintendent until 1837. Charles Stuart died in 1850 and the farm and brick home built by Col. John Stuart, for his son Charles, was acquired by Moses Coffman, the father of Samuel Coffman.

In 1839 Moses purchased a farm of 520 acres two miles north of Lewisburg. This farm was owned by the widow of Dr. John Simpkins. Dr. Simpkins acquired the property from the heirs of Col. Samuel Brown. The farm was know as the Samuel Brown Plantation. The Manor House was built from brick before 1820. Col. Brown was one of the first trustees appointed for the town of Lewisburg in 1782.

Moses was a member of the Frankford Methodist Church for nine years. After he moved to Lewisburg from his home on Culbertson Creek, he transferred his membership to the Methodist Episcopal Church at Lewisburg. Moses constantly supported his church and gave a gift of one thousand dollars to help pay for building the brick church at Frankford. Moses was known by the endearing title of "Uncle Moses." When he died August 6, 1856 at age 67, he left his estate to his widow and only child Samuel McClintic.

Peggy Beard McClintic died some twenty years later on July 8, 1876. Samuel McClintic, her only son, survived her. Two years after her death, in 1878, Samuel married Ellen Bright, the daughter of the Honorable Kyle Bright and sister of Jesse F. Bright. Ellen was twenty-five years younger than her husband, having been born in 1848. Samuel was 55 years of when he married Ellen, who was 30 years of age. Samuel was established as one of Greenbrier County's most substantial farmer and graziers upon whose judgement you could always rely.

Samuel McClintic died March 2, 1884, in his 61st year, and was buried beside his mother in the Lewisburg Cemetery behind the present Old Stone Presbyterian Church. As there were no children from his marriage his entire estate passed to his wife Ellen.

After Samuel's death, Ellen Bright married Charles W. (Charley Fox) McClung who was six years her senior. Charley Fox died May 19, 1906 at age 64 and was buried near the grave site of Samuel McClintic. Ellen died thirteen years later in 1919, at age 71. She was buried between her first and second husbands in the cemetery behind the Old Stone Presbyterian Church. Her estate passed to her brother's son Raymond E. Bright of Frankford, WVA. In 1951 Mr. Bright sold the farm of 520 acres, including the ten room brick house with its white columns to Mr. Henry Lindsay.

Mrs Harriet Malinda Barry Coffey
Birth: Apr. 28, 1835, Spartanburg County, South Carolina, USA
Death: Nov. 13, 1915, Davis, Murray County, Oklahoma, USA

Married Andrew Boyd Coffey in 1851 in Lafayette County, Mississippi.

Printed in The Davis News on Nov. 18, 1915; Reprinted with permission

Death of Mrs. H. M. Coffey.

Mrs. H. M. Coffey, mother of Mrs. D. A. Anderson and Mrs. G. H. Collins, died at the Anderson home in Davis Saturday evening at 8 o'clock. The greater part of her long life was spent at Abbeville, Miss., where many of her relatives still live. Failing health caused her to break up housekeeping three years ago, and she came to Davis to make her home with Mrs. D. A. Anderson. She reached a ripe old age, being 80 years old April 28, 1915. For two years she had been an invalid and confined to her bed.

Early in life she joined the Methodist church and remained a member until the day of her death. When she was active and in good health she was a great reader, and took great delight in reading about her church and its history and its doctrines, and was also well informed as to current events.

She was one of those quiet, modest Southern women who believed her greatest mission in the world was to maintain a true home and train her children to be good citizens. How well she succeeded in her life's purpose, one had only to know her home and the children who went out from it.

She is survived by seven children - four sons and three daughters: M. F. Coffey, A. H. Coffey and M. H. Coffey, all of Myrtle, Miss.; B. B. Coffey of Nashville, Tenn.; Mrs. J. D. Johnson of Memphis, Tenn; Mrs. G. H. Collins of Oklahoma City; and Mrs. D. A. Anderson of Davis.

Sunday afternoon at the Anderson home simple but impressive religious services were conducted by Rev. J. G. Blackwood, pastor of Methodist church, after which her body was laid to rest in Green Hill Cemetery.

Mrs Mary Jane "Polly" Parker Kendrick
Birth: Mar. 6, 1785, Elbert County, Georgia, USA
Death: Dec. 18, 1846, Jeffersontown, Jefferson County, Kentucky, USA

Obituary: Died on the 18th December 1846, Mrs. MARY KENDRICK, after a lingering illness, which she bore with Christian fortitude and resignation, aged 62 years. That have closed the labors of a mother in Israel. Mrs. K. was a sister of Daniel Parker, the author of the "Two Seeds" doctrine, and became a member of the Baptist church when quite a girl. Her religious influence was deeply felt by her family in the midst of wickedness. After her sons had become ministers and baptized most of her other children, she arose in a public assembly and called their attention while she boldly declared her faith in the cause of reformation. W.

(The Millennial Harbinger, Obituary Notices, 2nd Ser. Vol. IV. April 1847, p. 239).

Another obituary was published in the Christian Messenger and Bible Advocate, St. Louis, MO (January 1847), p. 23.

The article from the newspaper is the only documented proof that Mary (Parker) Kendrick was the daughter of Elder John Parker who was a Revolutionary War Patriot in Virginia.

Paul Peter Harrelson
Birth: 1664, New Kent County, Virginia, USA
Death: Apr. 5, 1734, Hanover County, Virginia, USA

Paul Peter Harrelson was born abt 1664 in St Peters Parish, New Kent, Virginia. He was the son of Peter Harrelson (1633-1715) and Rebekka Mary Chambers Harrelson (1635-1664).

Paul married Rebekkah Burgess (1667-1734) in New Kent County, Virginia in 1687. Rebekkah was the daughter of Joseph Burgess and Patience Freeman Burgess. In the book "Seventeenth Century Colonial Ancestors, Vol. II" on page 28 shows that Paul Harrelson was married to Rebecca Burgess, and that he was a Surveyor and a Landowner.

From Family Data Collection - Individual Records about Paul Haraalson: Name: Paul Haraalson - Spouse: Rebekkah Burgess - Parents: Peter Haraalson - Birth Place: New Kent, of St Peter, VA - Birth Date: 1664 - Marriage Place: of New Kent - Marriage Date: 1687 - Death Place: W, Hanover, VA - Death Date: 5 Apr 1734.

Paul Peter and Rebekkah Burgess Harrelson became the parents of the following known children: Judith Harrelson, Rebecca Harrelson, Anne Harrelson, Peter Harrelson, Paul Harrelson, Dorothy, William, Benjamin, Andrew, Joseph, Nathaniel, Prudence and Mary Frances Harrelson.

Books and articles about Paul and his family: "Virginia Genealogical Society Quarterly" - page 63. "Denizations and Naturalizations in the British Colonies in America, 1607-1775" - Page 122. Paul's dad was naturalized in Virginia on 23 March 1703. "Virginia Land Records" - page 87, page 97. "The Edward Pleasants Valentine papers: abstracts of records in the local and general archives of Virginia" page 4 - 2171. The book "The Compendium of American Genealogy, Vol. IV" on Page 583 "First Families in America" is talking about Paul's dad, Peter Harrelson who was Captain of the Danish Army, went from Denmark to Holland, then on to Hanover County, Va (1715), married to Miss Chambers. "The vestry book of St. Paul's Parish, Hanover County, Virginia, 1706-1786" page 136.

Paul died on 5 April 1734 in St Paul Parish, Hanover, Virginia, United States. He was 70 years old. The interesting parts are that the records of Paul's death is at St Peters Parish, New Kent, Virginia, and the records of his death are at St Paul Parish, Hanover, Virginia, United States. This is the same church and the same location.

St. Paul's Parish was created in 1704 from St. Peter's Parish, New Kent. In 1720 the parish boundaries also became those of Hanover County. Two Church of England edifices existed in St. Paul's Parish at the time of its creation. One was near the present day community of Old Church and the other near the present day Hanover Courthouse. By 1724 the Parish which was 60 miles long and 12 miles wide had outgrown itself and a new parish, St. Martin's, was formed from its western end. In 1729 the church building near the Courthouse was replaced by the church known today as Slash Church. The Rev. Patrick Henry (uncle of the famous patriot) was the rector of St. Paul's Parish from 1737 until 1777. Toward the end of his tenure a new brick church was constructed. Its location is unknown today.

After the American Revolution the work of the Church of England in rural Virginia was put to an end. Slash Church was used by the Methodists and Disciples of Christ. Today it is a congregation of Disciples of Christ. It was not until 1836 that services began to be held in the Hanover Courthouse area again. In 1840 the Bishop of Virginia laid the cornerstone of a new church on the site of the present day St. Paul's. The new brick church was consecrated in 1845. It was in the thick of things during the Civil War as the Courthouse area changed hands between Union and Confederate forces. During the Battle of Hanover Courthouse the church's Bible was stolen. It was found in a California bookstore in 1967 and returned to the church. In 1893 following the annual Christmas Pageant, the church burned down. In 1895 a new church was built on the same foundations in the late Gothic Revival style. Additions for offices, classrooms and a parish hall were completed in the 1930's, 1960's and in the first decade of the 21st century. St. Paul's Church, Hanover is a Virginia Historic Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places.

Born in Georgia, then moved with her family to Tennessee, Illinois and finally Texas. Aunt to Cynthia Ann Parker. Please note she is not the same person as Phebe Anglin who some claim to be Cynthia Ann's Aunt Phebe. Phebe Anglin was simply the wife of Adrian Anglin who was the guardian of Cynthia Ann's younger siblings Orlena and Silas Jr. who were not captured at Ft. Parker. There father was killed at Ft Parker and when there mother Lucinda died Adrian who's daughter was married to Richard Duty, Lucindas brother, took the younger siblings in and with his wife Phebe raised them. Phebe Anglin was not this Phebe however as Phebe Anglin and Phebe Hassell or both shown alive in different households on the 1850 Census. Also Phebe Parker Hassell died around 1852-1853 before Cynthia Ann was brought back to the family so she can not be the Phebe said to have helped Cynthia Ann in her return to the family in 1861.

"The Jenkins Graveyard"
by Carrie Deavours
a special to the Broadcaster

In the deep woods, almost hidden away from the world, is a graveyard of distinguished people who left their mark on Fayette County History but whose living descendants are few in number.

This is the resting place of Lewis and Mary A. JENKINS and a few of their offspring. Inscribed on his tombstone is: Pvt. AUSTIN's Regt. S.C. Militia - War of 1812 - born November 15, 1786 and died January 27, 1863. His wife Mary A. [SANDERS] JENKINS born abt 1786; died August 30, 1855. Her grave is the oldest one marked.

General L.W. JENKINS, evidently their son, was born September 16, 1822 and died January 20, 1863 thus dying seven days before his father. His wife was born May 15, 1825 and died August 14, 1890. They had at least five sons and two daughters. [L.W. Jenkins was a son of Lewis Jenkins, and several of his children were buried here according to Greenberry Jenkins' book.]

The son Verris ["Buck" JENKINS was] born February 02, 1867, died September 30, 1933, married Susanna FOWLER, born 1867, died in 1958. She is buried in the Berry Cemetery.

One daughter, M. [Mathelda] Alice JENKINS, born February 18, 1851, died August 02, 1888, married George Washington DEAVOURS. They had triplet sons, but only one Lucian lived to maturity.

The other daughter Maggie M. [JENKINS] wife of C.A. WHEELER, M.D., died December 08, 1893. Dr. WHEELER was well known in the North River beat and married Siney KIMBRELL after Maggy's death. They had one son Kelcy. The doctor is buried at Musgrove Chapel.

The JENKINS men were a unique class. They nicknamed most all their acquaintances, both male and female, and not just ordinary names. I made a collection of many of them from my dear father-in-law, the late H.V. DEAVOURS.

They called my father, Bedford SAWYER, the Whangadoodle. In about 1913 he helped "put up" a phone line and it was called the "Whangadoodle Line." Once at a writers conclave, I asked the guest speaker, a Poet Laureate of South Carolina, Dr. Archibald RUTLEDGE, what the word meant, as I had seen a reference to it on a visit to Hepsidam, Winston County. He thought it was a mystical creature of undefined characteristics, a human usage.

Uncle John SAWYER was the Gander, Uncle Henry was Duggan, cousins Austin and Verris, Dobber and Rufe. John SMITH was Sidehar (side harrow), Isaac DEAVOURS, the Gabbet, and William SMITH, Diadapper.

But they also named each other. Verris [JENKINS] was called Buck, Sidney P. [JENKINS], buried at Mt. Zion Methodist Cemetery, was Thacker, Alvin Sumner [JENKINS], buried at Studdards Crossroads, was Dude. I can't recall those given to Freeman S. and William P. (other than Bill) but some of the relatives may know. Mrs. Eula HAMMACK told me her husband Bill was called Bogs, [but] he didn't exactly cherish the assignment. My mother Margaret SAWYER, was the Goose, Mrs. Florentine BROWN was the Cultivator.

Once Mr. Jim ELLIS "rung up" Mr. FREEMAN to inquire of his wife, Sis, who had been "under the weather," to which he replied, "Oh, she's complainin' of feelin' better this mornin'." Another time he called to ask about some sick and aged, very sick man: "Oh, he went west last night" (died).

My husband and I cleared off this old burial ground on a recent Saturday. It was badly overgrown. I got the feeling of stepping back into history, viewing the unusual care used in committing these loved ones to their last resting places. First a large skillfully hewn stone about seven feet by five feet was laid, then another, about six feet by four feet laid on top of this, then the marker. A hewn rock wall encircled it. A cedar tree and a thick stone were placed in each corner. A four-strand wire fence rusting away, enclosed it. One small grave, not a Jenkins, read Earnest HYDE, son of J.M. and S.E. HYDE, born October 31, 1902 and died August 04, 1903.

These people were honest, moral and skillful. They lived better than most. All had large orchards, bees and vegetable gardens. Mr. FREEMAN had a Cider Mill. They were also rock masons, and a few chimneys still stand, attesting to their art. Well curbs their were their specialty, knowing how to cut a perfectly round or square hole to accommodate the old oaken bucket. They lived near each other and had few children. Lewis JENKINS likely had land granted to him for war service.

Any relative reading this might want to revisit this quiet and lovely spot. If so, you will have to wind your dusty way through and around mounds of dirt and rock, for Mr. PEABODY's coal trucks have hauled their broad acres away!

Rachael Rice Starnes
Birth: Unknown
Death: Unknown

As is so often the case for many women of the 1700s and early 1800s, there is very little that is definitely known about Rachel Rice Starns. She was born circa 1774, probably in Mecklenburg County, NC to parents of German descent, Jared and Lettie Potts (?) Rice. Rice is an English form of the name which was probably more like Reese or Reiss in German.

She was living in Mecklenburg County, NC when the bond for her marriage to Joseph Starns was issued on August 16, 1796 and they were married shortly thereafter. She was nearly twenty years younger than her husband. They made their home in Mecklenburg County, NC, and she gave birth to eight children, Eleanor, Joseph III, Jesse, Jarret Harrison, Sarah, Rachel, Jacob and Myra. The two oldest children were christened at Morningstar Lutheran Church where they attended services.

Joseph and Rachel Starns moved with their children to Burke County, NC (later Alexander County, NC) in 1816 and remained there the rest of their lives.

It is uncertain when she died. But she was certainly dead by 1850 as she was not listed in the U. S. Federal Census of that year, and it may be that she preceded her husband in death since there are no papers extant in the estate papers of Joseph Starns for a widow's allowance.

It is assumed that she is buried in the cemetery of Bethlehem Baptist Church beside her husband, Joseph Starns.

Family links: Spouse: Joseph Starnes (1755 - 1840); Children: Eleanor Starns Bradburn (1797 - 1887), Joseph Starnes (1798 - 1873), Jesse Starnes (1800 - 1874), Jarret Harrison Starnes (1804 - 1884), Rachel Starns Bisanar (1810 - 1887)
