10. Margaret Wilkinson was born in 1812 in North Carolina and died after 1888 in Anderson County, Texas. The cause of her death was old age.

General Notes: She states on census she was born in NC and her youngest sister Mary Ann was born in NC in 1824.
Living with son and his daughter, Maggie Bell. His wife seems to have died.
Sale of 95.60 acres
Margaret was born in North Carolina. Location is not certain, but might be same as Neal K, Cumberland County. The family did not leave North Carolina until after 1824, so she was a young girl when they made the pilgrimage south.
Margaret's husband, Phidelis Orion Lumpkin, was the son of one of Georgia 's early governors. He was born in Morgan County, Georgia. By 1827, Margaret's father was in Monroe County, Georgia so if the family stopped in Greene County it wasn't for long. The family friendships and intermarriage with various families living in Greene County indicate that they may have spent as much as a year there. Or, possibly these families knew each other from North Carolina.
Margaret's first son was born in Georgia and the remaining four were born in Texas.
Her second son was born in Texas, which means they had relocated by 1940. They were living next door to her sister Flora, who had married George W. Browning, also of Greene County, Georgia.
In 1880 she was living with her son Wilson and granddaughter Maggy Bell, plus three black members of the household, a cook, a washer and a child.
Margaret's husband also died young in 1855. She lived with one of her sons after that. She lost two of her boys in the Civil War.The 1850 census shows her stating her birth was in North Carolina.
Her son Daniel P was born there.Shows her as 40 - her husband died atthe end of 49 or before March 18501860 census Has five children stillat a home. Now a widow. All boys - range fr om 21 to 8.

The Federal government was so far behind in recording land sales at this time that it is entirely possible that P. O. purchased this land during the time he lived in Alabama, about 1834-35 and itwas only recorded five years later, AFTER the gold rush was bust.

P.O. was written up in a book as being last in his class at West Point. Here are some comments from a Texas gent who read a slight slur about P.O. on the web:

Mr. Benchley said...
" What interested me in Cadet Lumpkin is that he followed Robert E. Lee in the West Point demerit book. While Lee had none, his share of the blank page went to Pleaides, son of a Georgia governor, who not only took up Lee's page, but filled his own to the max, racking up aboutas many demerits as any cadet could at West Point."
It didn't stop him from liberating Texas from those unappreciative Mexicans in 1836.
He was practically a neighbor to Dorothy up in noreast Texas, Palastine to be exact.
He help figure out the Texas capital ought to be in Austin and put his name on the piece of paper giving up the independent Texas Republicto join the ole United States of A-mare-ree-ka, as former Governor Bush says it.
Didn't last as long as classmate Bobby Lee, giving up the ghost in 1855 as a Texas farmer.
I'd be proud to name a wiener dog after a freedom fighter and founding father of the Texas Republic. Remember, we stole it unfair and square from them Messicans...

History of Houston/Anderson County
After the removal of the Indians in the 1840s, settlement proceeded rapidly until the area had sufficient inhabitants to form a new county.In response to a petition presented by settlers at and around Fort Houston, the First Legislature of the state of Texas formed Anderson County from Houston County on March 24, 1846. A suggestion was made that the new county be called Burnet in honor of David G. Burnet. The county was named Anderson, however, after Kenneth Lewis Anderson, a prominent member of Congress and the last vice president of the Republic of Texas.LUMPKIN, Pleiades O. Pleiades O. Lumpkin, soldier, legislator, and jurist, was in Texas during the revolution and served in Capt. L. H. Mabbit's company from April 24 to July 24, 1836. In the spring of 1837 he signed a petition requesting that Nacogdoches County be split into two counties. In 1837 and 1838 he represented Houston County in the Second Texas Congress. In the House journal he is referred to as Major Lumpkin; although there is no record of his having attained that rank in the Texas army, a P. O. Lumpkin received a bounty warrant for 320 acres for service between April 24 and July 24, 1836. On January 23, 1839, Lumpkin was elected chief justice of Houston County. He resigned that office on March 12 to become government agent to aid in selecting and surveying a permanent site for the capital of the republic. By joint vote of the Fifth Congress on January 31, 1840, he was appointed one of three commissioners to inspect the land offices east of theBrazos. He resigned the position a short time later. He represented Houston County at the Convention of 1845,qv after which he seems to have retired from public life. The 1850 census listed him as a farmer inAnderson County.

11. Flora Wilkinson 8 was born in 1810 in North Carolina and died about 1858 in Anderson County, Texas about age 48. Another name for Flora was Flora Wilkerson.

Research Notes: Flora and Margaret, always close moved to Texas to the same to wn. They even lived next door to each other for a while. One sister, Mar garet, had all sons. The other, Flora, had all daughters.
Flora appears to have died very early. She must have been pregnant with h er youngest child, Margaret W., a female, at the time of the 1850 censu
At any rate, she was quite well to do and her younger daughters, Flora Ama nda and Margaret W.had a sizeable fortune in the 1860 census, even thou gh they were minors living with their older sister Martha J. and her husba nd, Dr. Yelverton. Perhaps the doctor met Martha while caring for her mot her?
Their father died as well sometime around 1853 and left the younger gir ls as orphans. I am assuming that Mary, who would have been 21 in 1860 wo uld also have married.FLora is a 40 year old widow. She is newly widowed, with assets of 10,00 0. She has four slaves. She has five girls, ages 12 to 2. Her sister Ma rgaret and husband Plieades live next door.

BROWNING, George W. (Estate) Date probated 25 March 1850. P.O. Lumpkin, Adm.
George Washington Browning was born in Morgan County, Georgia. His father, well to do planter William Browning, died when GW was twelve. In his will he stipulated that all his sons should receivea good English education in the manner of his eldest son. At the age of twenty two, GW (possible nickname Wash) married Miss Flora Wilkerson of Troup County, Georgia. By 1834 the newlyweds had moved to Alabama, and by 1836 they had moved on to the soon to be Texas frontier, arriving just in time for G. W. or Wash as he may have been call ed to enlist in the militia as a private. He was at the Battle of San Jacinto April 21, 1836 as a private. His brother-in-law, P. O. (Dan) Lumpkin, also fought for the independence of Texas and signed the Texas declaration of statehood. P. O. was a West Point graduate and though there is no record of his promotion in that army, he was thence called Major Lumpkin.
Flora, GW's bride, had a sister Margaret, who married P. O. Lumpkin. The two couples were married in a double ceremony in August 1830. Thetwo families moved to Texas together. Flora and her sister Margaret were very close. In 1829 just after their father had died in a strange new place, Troup County, Georgia, the two young sisters were founding members of the Presbyterian Church in LaGrange, GA.
G. W. was the commissary of the newly built Fort Houston in Anderson County. He died about 1849 while away from home, from unknown causes. He was not quite forty years of age.
He left his wife and daughters well provided for, but sadly by 1858 his wife Flora also died. Her oldest daugher Martha Jane married the local doctor, Nathan Yelverton, and her three youngest sisters lived with them. The next oldest sister, Mary J., also married either just before or right after their mother's death.

Obituary for Neal Johnson WIlkinson
Died June 3rd, 1887
The subject of this sketch was born September 21st, 1842 near Long Cane in this county. He grew up there, attending the neighborhood school s. In 1870 he was married to Ava Clifford Stinson. For three years he co ntinued to live near Long Cane, but in 1873 moved to Harrisonville, the ho me of his mother-in-law. About a year ago, on account of his wife's heal th he moved to Hogansville, where he was residing at the time of his deat h. He had been sick quite three weeks with the fever, from which scarce ly a family has been excepted, it being almost an epidemic.
Few men have died in our town who were missed more truly than will bet he deceased by those who knew him intimately.
He was a quiet unobtrusive man of a genial disposition; avoiding all perso nalities and enemities, with malice toward none and a friendly feeling f or all. At home in the bosom of his family these traits wereunusually pr ominent, thus his wife will miss an affectionate husband, his father the c are of a kind father.
At an early age, when just on the threshold of manhood, the deceased ma de a confession of religion and joined the Baptist Church. How well he li ved up to the requirements of the new life, can best by judged by the mann er of his death. The writer will long remember how he called him to th is bedside and took firm hold of his hand and calmly stated his willingne ss to go in obedience to God's command. He protested that this resignati on and confidence came from no good acts in his life, but from faith and t rust in the power of the redemption of Christ. Such was the effect of th is testimony that since death has tocome, one must confess that to d ie a Christian is beautiful.
It is pleasant to know too that his wife and four children, two boys and t wo girls, are left fairly provided with this worlds goods. And while symp athizing with them, we wish them a continuation of God's provident care.

General Notes: He left the family just after losing the farm. He had been selling moonshine to supplement the family income and was in danger of arrest.
George was the only surviving son of his family. He was also the younge st and possibly a bit spoiled.
In 1910 he was boarding with family members in LaGrange and working at t he local bottling plant managed by his brother-in-law Ed Hurst.
He married my grandmother against the wishes of his family in 1912. Th ey eloped to Roanoke, AL. His mother was very unhappy about the marriag e. The newly weds moved into her home, which is shown on the home pag e. They lived upstairs. It was truly a case of the wicked mother-in-l aw as far as my grandmother was concerned. Their first child was still b orn and family rumor has it that the child strangled onit's umbilical co rd because my grandmother was made to milk the cow right before her due da te.
The home place was on 400 acres where they raised cotton. The house was v ery typical of homes of that time, being quite narrow from the side, but h ad long windows on either side of the fireplaces at each end. It also h ad shutters, which were definitely a sign of prosperity in those times. T he roof was shake shingle, which is a luxury now but was most likely t he most available product at the time. It was the largest house in the c ommunity at the time, I am told.
In 1929 George was prospering and bought a brand new car. Over the ne xt few years however, he and his family which now included three daughter s, suffered through numerous setbacks. First came the depression, follow ed by the attack of the boll weevil. We have numerous cropnotes where t he farm animals were mortgaged to buy cotton seed for planting.
In November 1934 he left the state to avoid being jailed for running moons hine to supplement the family income during the depression. (Brewing whis ky is an old Scottish tradition - maybe this was heritage coming to the fo re!) He wound up in the Seattle, Washington area where his sister and h er son and daughter were living. He always had a problem with alcoholi sm and he became a house painter.
In 1946 my mother and I moved to Seattle for a short while and lived wi th him. He was a thin man, very taciturn and aloof. He smoked heavily.
Over the years his oldest child Evelyn stayed in touch with him, whent he rest of the family would not speak to him. She went to visit hima nd on one occasion paid for him to visit sister Alice and her daught er in Salt Lake City, Utah.
He died alone, of a head injury from a fall. In his will he left $1 ea ch to his wife Jimmie Lee and his youngest daughter Nell who had both refu sed to speak to him again once he left home.he was boarding with Grady and Maggie and their two children, Grady and Ma ry.and was working at the bottling plant. His mother was also living wi th them aswell as sister Mattie. John A. Harris was also boarding the re and would be the future husband of Mattie Lou. He was about twelve yea rs her senior.

Noted events in his life were:

• Census: 1910, Lagrange, Troup County, Georgia; Census: Census.

• Relocation: Nov 14, 1934, Fredonia, Chambers, Alabama, USA.

Research Notes: Woody was born in Wisconsin. His parents were Indian and he was one of three children. His father was a very accomplished fiddler, and won contests for "old time fiddling". They lived in the Stockbridge area on the eastern side of Lake Winnebago. His brother Stanley (Chub) was also a musician and the two boys formed a band called the Sickle Swingers. Woody played five instruments at the time - accordion,
Times were hard and a musician friend of Woody's named Curly Hicks moved to Atlanta, GA. Soon he was encouraging Woody to come down and join him. Chub declined but Woody did join Curly. Woody wrote songs and had at least two published by Rose Acuff. We have a photocopy ofa 78rpm recorded on the Bluebird label (later RCA) by Curly Hicks featuring Woody Doxtator. We also have a tape of two fox trots Woody recorded.
During the war years (World War II) Woody played in hotel lounges as well as on the Merry Go Round, a noonday radio show. We have an article about him featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution entertainment magazine. Some of the information may be embroidered but accordingto family members, most sounds true.
Woody left Atlanta and went to Knoxville where he also played on the Merry Go Round with Hank Williams and Chet Atkins. Chet was just starting out at the time (about 18). We have a group photo which includesthe two of them. He met White and married her and when she became pregnant, he told her he would leave if she didn't abort. She didn't and he did. Angelia Doxtator Riddle is the child by that marriage.
Later on I have heard that he played as the lead in act for Woody Herman and also for Liberace.
He moved to Billings, Montana at one point, where he got drunk in thewrong part of town and wound up in the hospital. There he met his 5th wife Laura, who was a nurse.
In the late 1950s Woody Junior went to Sacramento to visit our Dad. He spent about a week with him. It was awkward after twenty years of absence and Woody Junior did not come away feeling that he had gained much from the visit.

No one knows who wife #4 was.
Laura in Billings Montana?
