209 From a genealogy of the Hull family, source unknown:

. . . Hon. Hoke Smith . . . was for more than forty years one of the most prominent statesmen not only of Georgia, but also of the nation. The career of Hon. Hoke Smith is well covered in contemporary biographical literature, and is too long to be given at great length here. He practised law in Atlanta for a number of years, and after having become one of the leading figures of his community was by President Cleveland appointed Secretary of the Interior; this latter post he held and ably filled from 1893 to 1896. From 1907 to 1911 he was governor of Georgia. In 1911 he became United States Senator from Georgia; he remained in the Senate for ten years, becoming one of the most respected and influential members of that body, achieving a high reputation as an orator, and taking a leading part in the settlement of the vexing questions arising out of the World War.

213 From Descendants of Jacob Lumpkin:

John was one of the first settlers of Oglethorpe County who, with his father, George Lumpkin, settled on Long Creek in the year 1784. His first home was a one room cabin which has long since been destroyed, but its location is marked by a pile of rocks, which were used as the chimney. The country was full of Indians, but they never molested his family, being awed into respect by the bold be[a]ring of Mr. Lumpkin.

Born 1762, died in Wilkes Co. Ga. in 1834. Was the Justice Of Peace Wilkes Co GA. Married in 1780 to Lucy Hopson (b. 16 May 1764 in Halifax County Virginia; d. 1820 in GA; Father: Henry Hopson (Capt.) - (1735-1810); Mother: Martha Neville - (1733-1800)). Had 11 children.

214 From Dr. R. Stuart Kinsella, research advisor, archives@christchurch.ie, Christ Church Cathedral Dublin, 24 September 2015:

... I'm delighted to have confirmed that Richard Murrow was a chorister in the cathedral. This would have been in the time of (later Sir) Robert Prescott Stewart, who was a huge musical presence in Dublin in the second half of the 19th century. Wikipedia has plenty on him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Prescott_Stewart but there is also a Ph.D. thesis on him as well if you've time! http://eprints.maynoothuniversity.ie/1479/

... in the 1848 edition (p.300) [of Thom's directories], out of 7 choristers, the 4th listed is R. Murrow, and I have to say he is amongst illustrious company. Also included are J. Horan (who became the organist) and G. W. Torrance, also a well-known organist who had a large influence on the musical scene in Australia. The 1850 edition (p. 300) lists R. Murrow first out of 6 choristers (which suggests that he might have been the most senior), while unfortunately, in 1851, the choristers are not listed in the directory.

... it is very likely that he learnt how to play the organ from R. P. Stewart, particularly given that two of his fellow choristers went on to become important organists.

(Great Britain to Savannah) and their two children, Marion age 3 and

226 From funeral notice:

Judge Howell Cobb
December 7, 1922 - September 16, 2005

The Honorable Howell Cobb, Senior Judge of the Eastern District of Texas, died in Castine, Maine, Friday, September 16, 2005. A gathering of family and friends will be held from 5:00 until 8:00 P. M. Wednesday, September 21, 2005, at Broussard?s Mortuary, 2000 McFaddin, in Beaumont, Texas. Services will be held at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, September 22, 2005, at St. Mark?s Episcopal Church, the Rev. A. Dean Calcote officiating. The committal will follow in Magnolia Cemetery.

Judge Cobb was born December 7, 1922, to lawyer and state circuit judge Howell Cobb and his wife, Dorothy Hart Cobb, in Atlanta, Georgia. Shortly thereafter, the family returned to their home in Athens, Georgia. In 1925, the family moved to Albany, Georgia, where Cobb attended Albany public schools. In 1934, the family moved to Lake Burton, Georgia, where he was home-schooled by his mother. From 1935 to 1940, he attended Darlington School in Rome, Georgia; Western High School in Washington, D. C.; and Albany High School, graduating in the spring of 1940. From 1940 to 1942, he attended St. John?s College at Annapolis, Maryland.

On Cobb?s nineteenth birthday, December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. In March of 1942, he volunteered as a Naval Cadet, hoping to become a fighter pilot, and in April of 1943, he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps.

On December 16, 1943, he married Laetitia Torrance Chalmers. In December of 1944, he was deployed to the South Pacific Theater as a fighter/bomber pilot, stationed on Eniwetok, Majuro, Guam, and the Palau Islands.

In the fall of 1945 Cobb worked as a temporary teacher at Albany Junior High School, and in January of 1946, he entered undergraduate school at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. In June of that year, he was accepted into the University of Virginia Law School, graduating with an LL.B. in June of 1948, and thereafter attended the University of Texas Law School to prepare for the Texas Bar Examination. He began his legal career in Houston, Texas, with the law firms of Kelly & Ryan and later, Fountain, Cox, & Gaines. In 1954 he was hired by the firm of Orgain, Bell, & Tucker in Beaumont, becoming a partner in 1956.

Cobb?s wife, Torrance, died in September of 1963. On July 3, 1965, he married Amelie Suberbielle, and the couple subsequently became active in the Republican Party, becoming friends with Texas Senator John Tower, who recommended Cobb to President Ronald Reagan. On April 4, 1985, Reagan appointed Cobb a United States District Judge. He served for twenty years, assuming senior status as a sitting judge in March of 2001. Judge Cobb?s son, artist John Lamar Cobb, painted his official portrait, which hangs in his courtroom.

Judge Cobb was a descendant of an illustrious Georgia family; his great-grandfather, Howell Cobb, served as Governor of Georgia, Representative to the United States Congress from Georgia, Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives, and Secretary of the Treasury under President James Buchanan. He was also a leading candidate for the presidency of the Confederate States of America and led Cobb?s Legion as a Major General during the War Between the States. His grandfather, Andrew Jackson Cobb, served as Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court as well as a Trustee of the University of Georgia.

Judge Cobb was a member of Kappa Alpha Order (Beta Mu, 1941), and on January 23, 1998, was inducted into the fraternity?s Walsh Court of Honor. He inherited from his father a strict sense of legal ethics and a sharp wit, and was known in the legal and judicial fields and among his friends for his acute judgment, keen intellect, broad education, and wide knowledge of the law. His daughter Caroline Cobb Ervin remembers that he always told his children, ?Your inheritance from me will be a good name, a code of honor, a fine education, and a few warm memories.?

Judge Cobb is survived by his wife, Amelie Suberbielle Cobb; his six children and their spouses, Catherine Cobb Cook and her husband, David; Howell ?Chip? Cobb III and his wife, Bonnie; Mary Ann Cobb Walton and her husband, Ray; Caroline Cobb Ervin and her husband, Jimmy; Thomas Hart Cobb and his fiancée, Farrah Smith; and John Lamar Cobb and his wife, Monica. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Andrew, Martha, and Matthew Cook; Nicole, Natalie, James, Torrance, Travis, and Thomas Cobb; Ben, Elizabeth, Adam, Nathan, Christopher, Matthew, and Sarah Grace Walton; Elizabeth, William, and Emily Ervin; Austin Gonsoulin; Olivia Cobb; and finally, Howell Campbell Cobb (en route); and by his extended family. Also very close to him were his assistant for over forty years, Dru Ann Wiley, and longtime special family friend Adlene Reed.

229 From her daughter, Jeanette Lummus Buffalo, on the occasion of her memorial service, January 12, 2015:

I have been told that in her youth our mother was a smart, fun, beautiful young woman.

Despite never knowing her as others, even some of you, did in her youth, when I think back to memories of our mother, I remember the basic lessons she taught me. As a product of the late 50's and 60's, it was socially important that I learn the trinity of domestic arts: cooking, cleaning, and sewing. It took awhile, but I did eventually learn those things. I learned to sew from my father, I learned to cook from my grandmother, and I learned to keep house from both
my husbands.

One of mom's greatest lessons to the three of us was her simple, steadfast belief in the Holy Trinity. She was too self-conscience to attend church on a regular basis, but when a lesson could be told or shown to us, it was. Our mother's life included many hairpin turns that she didn't ask for and things that none of us in this room would want to endure. After the initial shock, anger, and depression that would inevitability follow such turns, she could always put a positive spin on the situation, believing Jesus wanted her in that very spot and He bolstered her bravado so she could do His will and spread His word.

A perfect example of this happened about 25 years ago. As Mom was losing her sight, she enrolled in a two-week class in College Park to learn to use a computer software program for the blind. She knew no one there, did not know the facility and was scared to death. I thought she might last three days, but she completed both weeks. I don't remember if I told her or not, but I was amazed she stuck it out and truly proud of her.

Our mother as a child defied her mother's instructions to turn out the light and go to sleep. It was Halloween, and she had not had enough of her jack-o-lantern. She lighted the candle in it, but, hearing her mother coming, she hid the lighted jack-o-lantern under the covers. As you might imagine, the wool blanket caught fire. Both Mom and her sister got a spanking from their mother and then another from their father.

Mom was a real wordsmith. She loved making up words and entering contests. She actually won some pretty good prizes, too...a dishwasher long before every home had a dishwasher, a poker table, and a pellet rifle are just a few of the items that were delivered to her door.

One year a small periodical published a story she wrote about chimney sweeps, cementing her wordsmithing talent in print, and assuring her that her grandchildren would have something in writing to remember her by. Mom loved collecting cookbooks and had hundreds of them through the years, but she never developed a real talent for cooking. This small fact did not stop her from entering the Pillsbury Bake-Off year after year with entries of some strange trial and error concoctions that the three of us had to eat.

When it was clear to Mom that she could no longer live alone, she chose to move Magnolia Manor in Americus. She lived there for 18 years believing Jesus wanted her to be His welcoming committee and spread His word. If someone didn't want to be a friend of hers, it wasn't for lack of her trying. A year after she moved from assisted living to the nursing home, Mom was named Queen of Magnolia Manor. She was crowned with a tiara, given a bouquet of long-stemmed red roses and a sash. She wore the tiara every day until it broke. Then she went to Wal-Mart and bought another one. This pattern went on for years until a month ago.

She loved wearing it so much we sent it along to be cremated with her.

Along with Cam and Leslie, I want to thank you for being here. . .not just to be with us, but to honor our mother. I know she's looking down at all of you right now with the biggest smile she ever wore!

G'bye, Shugah!

My grandfather was so smitten with her, he asked her to marry him 10 days after they met! My grandmother came to Jacksonville to meet his parents . . . and less than a year later, they were married. They were married in Oklahoma and moved back to Jacksonville to start their own lives. . . . My grandmother is still alive, about to celebrate her 87th birthday.

Because James Hall McHenry, Sr. and Marion Greer (sic) Grieve McHenry both died when their two surviving boys were very young, Callender and Joseph Henry Lumpkin apparently took the boys in and raised them. I've been told that both John Grieve McHenry and his brother, James Hall McHenry, Jr., graduated from Princeton (we have paperwork showing this) due to Mr. Lumpkin paying for their college education. So, they were almost like sons to Callender and Joseph Lumpkin.

Elizabeth Frances Murrow Adams, who is Mer's aunt, married Richard Ashmore Adams, first emigrated to Australia, returned to Ireland, and then emigrated to the States landing here on the day Lincoln was assassinated. In doing some research a few days ago, I learned that Elizabeth, Richard and their daughters lived in Chicago's affluent 10th Ward when it was incinerated in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

From John Murrow:

Uncle Dick was just a year younger than his brother George, who came to the United States in 1880 at the age of 21. Eight years later, Dick followed his brother to Omaha. When George relocated with his young family to Chicago, Dick followed him there as well. Once in Chicago, yet another brother, Gerald Victor--who preferred to use his middle name--joined the family from Lurgan.

My dad told me that Uncle Dick worked for a major furniture retailer in Chicago, and so he was able to acquire beautiful pieces of both furniture and oriental carpets for all members of the family. We still have some of the things that he bought. Additionally, he was a Sunday painter, and in his sitting room of the large apartment that he shared with his brother and his brother's family he would set up his easel and paint landscapes. Dad visited his grandparents, Aunt Louise and Uncle Dick every Sunday from the time he was a toddler until he left for the army.

245 From Leslie Gilbert Christy:

Yes, my father was 18 years older than my mother, and by all rights, they should not have had children, let alone two, but it happened and I'm quite glad. Mother was 35 when I was born and he was 53! She was 41 when Hugh was born. And of course, Daddy died when I was 6 and Hugh was 18 months old. Tough life for a young widow. Da helped out a lot. And he and Ma-ma virtually supported Aunt Mar too after she divorced Mr. Akers. Lots of grief for a minister's family especially in those times. And of course, my mother had been divorced from Mr. Hughes about 1912 when Brother Stephen was very young, and she went home to live with her parents also. My dad was a Kentucky native son. Incidentally, his mother never acknowledged his marriage to my mother, staunch Baptist people they were and my mother a divorcee. She never considered me her grandchild. She died before Hugh was born, well into her 80's. My dad's first wife died in her early 40's, I think from appendicitis or flu. She died about 1917, maybe 1918 and my parents were married in 1920. His children and his mother thought that was too soon also.

246 From Leslie Morris:

Just after World War II, we used to send care packages to Cousin Esther--Mrs. Herbert Jones, Ard Stratha, 19 Grove Road, Northwood, Middlesex, England. And my mother and I carried on a correspondence for awhile before losing touch. 
Atkinson, Esther Louisa (I2910)
 
247 From Leslie Murrow Morris:

My mother told me that her grandparents, Richard Murrow and Louisa Mesney, had four children. All four died at once, and then they had eleven more. I know of no more details.

The page from Vivienne Murrow Sornson's girlhood journal appears to verify that they had at least two children who died in the black plague. Why that information is scratched out, I do not know.

My mother may have said four in error, or I may have erred in remembering four instead of two.

248 From Lewis of Warner Hall:

Sir Thomas Windebank was for many years Clerk of the Signet to Queen Elizabeth and to James I, and through his marriage to Lady Frances Dymoke he had allied himself with one of the most prominent families of the contemporary English nobility. 
Windebank, Sir, Knt. Thomas (I1461)
 
249 From Marion Morris Wood's "My Life Story" 1882:

I have been asked to record for the sake of future generations a few of the interesting facts of our family.

The first concerns my father's uncle, Samuel Tappan Morris of Abbeville SC. As a young man he was so anxious for a really good education that he rode from Abbeville SC to Oxford OH, hundreds of miles, sold his horse to pay his tuition, and studied at Miami University. This trip took two weeks each fall and two weeks in the spring when he bought another horse and rode home. This routine he continued for four years, achieving his BA degree in 1840.

I have some of the original letters he wrote to his mother from college and I think the most remarkable thing he wrote was "Mother, I want you to see that Sister Sarah has the best education possible--she has the best mind in the family." It was most unusual for a young man a hundred and forty years ago to realize his sister had a fine mind and was worthy of education. I'm very proud of him.

***

A letter dated July 16, 1842 to Samuel Morris from G. W. W. Pressly mentioned getting a "snag horse" in Ohio for from 10 to 15 dollars.

***

A letter dated November 8, 1844, from Samuel Morris to his mother establishes that he had been in Alabama for eight weeks, and had found a teaching job at a "classical school" in Union Springs, AL, for one year beginning in January 1845.

***

A letter dated December 19, 1845, from Samuel Morris to his mother, he states that he is now in Montgomery, AL, on his way farther west in search of a situation as a teacher for another year. He writes "...my destiny is now fixed. My affections have been placed...& they have been reciprocated. Two years more, & (if spared) I will show you one of the most accomplished and beautiful ladies of the South."

***

Unfortunately, six weeks after his marriage to Elizabeth, he was dead, about October 1848. 
Morris, Samuel Tappan (I0037)
 
250 From Marion Morris Wood's "My Life Story" 1882:

My mother's father, Christopher Simonton Brice, also fought under Robert E. Lee in Virginia and during those war years my mother (age 4) and her mother, Margaret Gooch, went to live with her maternal grandfather, Henry Gooch, near Chester, SC.

My mother was eight years told when Sherman arrived and camped on her grandfather's plantation and although she lived to be ninety-three years old, she always remembered the Sherman experiences. She saw her grandfather hanged from his own stairwell because he refused to tell the Yankees where his silver was hidden. He was cut down before he died, blue in the face. She saw every living creature that the soldiers didn't eat shot down in the yard. She saw her grandfather's blue damask curtains snatched from the windows and used as saddlebags by Sherman and his men. She saw the soldiers carry out every china dish in the house, stand them up against the trees and use them for targets. I myself have the only remaining dish, a beautiful platter, rescued I don't know how, and I treasure it immensely.

Sherman knew the war was already won, the South on her knees, broken and bleeding, before he started his raid. But he was willing to make war on the helpless women and children. He himself said "I've cut a swath through the South 200 miles long and 60 miles wide, and if a crow wants to fly over it, he will have to carry his lunch with him." He excused his savage action by saying "War is Hell." Even Winston Churchill says in his autobiography that the North was more to blame than the South.

Is it any wonder my mother always called it the Uncivil war, and that my father always told her she would die an unreconstructed rebel? 
Brice, Christopher Simonton (I0065)
