Patrick Carroll1

M, b. 30 June 1836, d. 30 August 1916
Patrick Carroll
     Patrick was born on 30 June 1836 at Barnwell, South Carolina, United States.2 He was the son of Burton Carroll and Mary Ann Jowers. He married Nancy S. Hair, daughter of John Henry Hair and Mary Burt, circa 1854 at South Carolina, United States.3 He married Esther Jane Sanders, on 28 November 1886 at Leon, Florida, United States.4 Patrick died on 30 August 1916 at Suwannee, Florida, United States, at age 80. His body was buried in September 1916 at Beulah Church Cemetery, Suwannee, Florida, United States.
     Patrick's occupation: Farmer.
Biography of Patrick Carroll:
Patrick Carroll was born in Barnwell County, South Carolina. He married Nancy Hair Jowers about 1854, in South Carolina. Nancy had previously been married to William Jowers, by which she had seven children. Patrick and his family, including the Jowers children, moved to Augusta, Georgia about 1859-60.

At the beginning of the Civil War, Patrick left his family and enlisted 4 March 1862 at Augusta, Georgia. He enlisted as a Private in Captain Henry S. Dortic's Company C, 48th Georgia Infantry of General Wrights Brigade. His pension application [Confederate Pension Application A6059, Florida State Archives, Tallahassee, Florida] of 20 Jan 1900 claimed the following: "in the line of duty at Petersburg in the State of Virginia on or before the 22nd day of June 1862, [Ed. Note: This should have said 1864 not 1862] I received a Gun Shot wound in the left Forefinger with a Minnie Ball resulting in the Total loss of the left Forefinger, and on the 30th day of July A.D. 1864 in front of Petersburg, I was shot in the Left arm, Below the Elbow with a minnie Ball which shattered the Bones of the arm Just above the hand from which I had lost my finger. For those injuries I received a furlough and was sent to my home in Georgia and upon my return to the army or while returning about the 7th day of January A.D. 1865 - There was a Severe reck (sic) of the train on which I was travelling Between Danville and Petersburg, Va. in which I was Severely and permanently Hurt with a painful and permanent rupture in the Extreme lower left side, Causing Kidney and Spinal trouble to begin and from that time I have never seen a well day. But the Injuries which I then received were permanent and Have ever Since grown worse. As I grow older my Injuries grow worse and as a direct result of said Injuries I am physically unable to perform manual Labor and I have no other means of a Support except my Labor."

Patrick was promoted to Corporal on 31 Jan 1864. His Pension Application also indicates that he was honourably discharged at the Hospital in Augusta, Georgia on 5 May 1865 where he was recuperating at the close of the war. On 14 Mar 1900, for the above service, Patrick was awarded a pension of $120 per year. He collected that Pension until his death in 1916.

After the war, Patrick remained in Augusta. In 1865, he is listed in the Augusta City Directory as working in the "Augusta Factory". In 1867, he is listed as a "wool dresser". Between 1867 and 1870 he moved a few miles south into Burke County, Georgia. On 4 Sep 1870, he and his family were enumerated with the family of Baldwin B. Miller, a Physician and Farmer. Patrick is listed as "overseer on Farm". Patrick and his family moved to Suwannee County, Florida in 1872, as indicated in his Civil War pension application.

Patrick died 30 Aug 1916, at age 80 and is buried in Beulah Church Cemetery, Suwannee County, Florida near his second wife, Ester J. Sanders.

Nancy S. Hair1

F, b. circa 1820, d. circa 1886
     Nancy was born circa 1820 at Barnwell, South Carolina, United States.2 She was the daughter of John Henry Hair and Mary Burt. She married William Jowers, circa 1841 at South Carolina, United States. She married Patrick Carroll, son of Burton Carroll and Mary Ann Jowers, circa 1854 at South Carolina, United States.3 Nancy died circa 1886 at Suwannee, Florida, United States. Her body was buried circa 1886 at Macedonia Cemetery, Suwannee, Florida, United States.4
     Biography of Nancy S. Hair:
Nancy S. Hair's first husband, William Jowers died in 1853 intestate in Barnwell County, South Carolina. He "died much involved in his circumstances" and his "Estate is insufficient to pay the debts" according to the petitions in his estate papers. This left Nancy with 9 children, one being William Jowers daughter from a previous marriage. Nancy was about 16 years older than her second husband, Patrick Carroll and was about 34 years of age when she married Patrick.

Patrick and Nancy were said to have been divorced about 1886 in Suwannee County, Florida, but no record of that divorce has been found. In fact, the story in the family is that Patrick abandoned Nancy at Mary Carroll Wooley's house (Patrick's sister) while he lived with several women. Nancy died at Mary Wooley's house and is buried in Macedonia Cemetery, Suwannee Co., Florida near her son, James J. Jowers.

Benjamin Tompkins

M, b. circa 1808, d. 13 December 1869
     Benjamin was born circa 1808 at Washington, Georgia, United States. He was the son of Samuel Tompkins and Polly (--?--). He married Martha Hardie, daughter of William M. Hardie and Elizabeth (--?--), on 27 August 1835 at Stewart, Georgia, United States.1 Benjamin died on 13 December 1869 at Live Oak, Suwannee, Florida, United States.
     Benjamin's occupation: Farmer.
Biography of Benjamin Tompkins:
We believe Benjamin is the son of Samuel Tompkins (c1765-1860). Our basis for believing he is the son of Samuel (1765) are as follows:

Both Partin (1775) and Samuel (1765) Tompkins were the only Tompkins from Washington County, Georgia that moved their families into Stewart Co. Georgia in the late 1820's. They resided in Stewart Co. living very near each other from the late 1820's until about 1841 when they moved further west into Covington County, Alabama. Since Benjamin Tompkins married Martha Hardie in Stewart Co., Georgia in 1835 and was living there in 1840 at the time of the 1840 Census it is clear that Benjamin must be the son of either Samuel or Partin. When Samuel and Partin moved into Alabama in the early 1840's, Benjamin and his young family did not move with them. Instead, Benjamin and family moved into Lowndes County, Georgia as they are found there in the 1850 Census. Likely Benjamin moved to Lowndes Co. because Martha Hardie's brother, Allen Hardie also moved to Lowndes Co. Georgia about that same time.
     
     The make-up of the Partin Tompkins family is nearly complete and it does not appear that Benjamin could be a son of Partin. Whereas, a male child of Benjamin's age fits in the Samuel Tompkins family based on the 1820 and 1830 census of the Samuel Tompkins family.

     Benjamin is enumerated very near Samuel Tompkins in the 1840 Census. The land he owned is one section south of land that Samuel Tompkins owned, whereas Partin's land was several miles distant.

     Benjamin named his third male child, Samuel. His first male child was named Theophilus, obviously named after his wife, Martha Hardie's Uncle, Theophilus Hardie, who was a prominent preacher in Stewart County, Georgia. His second male child was named William, quite likely after Martha Hardies, father William Hardie or possibly a William ancestor in the Tompkins family as that is a very common name.

     The name Samuel is used repeatly in several generations of the descendants of Benjamin Tompkins, whereas the name Partin is not to be found at all in his descendants Based on the above we have placed Benjamin as the son of Samuel.

     Benjamin served in the Stewart County, Georgia Guards for seven days under Col. David Burke in 1835 in the Creek Indian war. [Dixon, History of Stewart County, Vol II. p. 64.] His Widow, Martha Hardie, claimed in her Widows Pension Application of 31 May 1897 that he fought in Capt. Hornes, Jernigans and Greenberry Balls' 77th Georgia Volunteers in the Creek Indian Wars entering into service on 1 May 1836 at Lumpkin, Georgia and was discharged at Lumpkin, Georgia in July, 1836. The War Department could not find any record that Benjamin was on the Muster Rolls of the 77th Georgia Volunteers so her pension application was not approved.

     Benjamin and family lived in Stewart County Georgia into the 1840's, moving by 1850 to Lowndes County, Georgia. He apparently moved with Allen Hardie, Martha's brother to Lowndes Co. Georgia rather than move with his father and brothers to Covington, Alabama. About 1854 Benjamin and his family moved into Hamilton County, Florida and finally into Suwannee County, Florida by 1861.

     The pension application of his widow, Martha, indicates he was 5 ft. 10 inches tall, had blue eyes, dark hair and of fair complexion. He died 13 December 1869, near Live Oak, Suwannee County, Florida. He is likely buried near Live Oak in Suwannee County but to date no grave marker has been found.

Her body was buried on 14 February 1936 at Beulah Church Cemetery, Suwannee, Florida, United States.3
     Biography of Esther Jane Sanders:
Ester J. Sanders is Patrick's second wife. Ester claimed on her application to receive Patrick's Civil War pension after his death in 1916, that she married Patrick on 28 November 1886 in Leon County, Florida. She was not able to prove she had married Patrick as there was no record of her marriage to be found. As a result she was denied a pension. She is buried near Patrick in Beulah Church Cemetery, in Suwannee County, Florida.

Robert Ransom Parker

M, b. circa 1827, d. 14 November 1882
     Robert was born circa 1827 at South Carolina, United States.1 He was the son of John H. Parker and Honor Smith. He married Civility Sullivan, daughter of William Sullivan and Lydia Peacock, on 13 February 1850 at Madison, Florida, United States.2 Robert died on 14 November 1882 at Madison, Florida, United States.3
     Robert's occupation: Baptist Minister.
Biography of Robert Ransom Parker:
Robert Ransom Parker, or Ransom, was born in South Carolina, possibly Edgefield District about 1827. He joined and served in the Confederate Army in the Civil war. At the end of the war he returned to Madison County, severely injured according to his great grandson John P. Tompkins, who heard this from his grandfather John S. Parker.

      Confederate Military Records for Florida Military Units list two Robert Parker's, both are listed as Robert H. Parker. There are no Ransom or other Robert Parker's listed from Florida. It is possible that one of these Robert H. Parkers could be Robert Ransom Parker, but the place of enlistment of these two Roberts appeared distant from Madison County. Thus, we have not been able to find a clear record of Robert Ransom Parker's civil war service.

     On 1 December 1857, Robert R. Parker of Madison County Florida bought 165.94 acres of land from the government land office in Tallahassee. This land is described as "the South East quarter of the North East Quarter of Section nine, and the lot numbered three of of Section ten, in Township two, South, of Range eleven, East" This land lies on the western shore of the the Suwannee River in Madison Co. Florida. [Certificate 13494, dated 1 December 1857 from the General Land Office of the United States of America in Tallahassee]

     On 11 Dec 1863, Robert bought 192 acres of land from William J. and Nancy Dixon in Sections 10, 15 and 16, Twp. 2 south, Range 11 east in southeast Madison County, Florida, near the Suwannee River. This land is also on the western shore of the Suwannee River very near the land he bought in 1857. [Madison County, Florida Deed Book H1, p.24]

     On 18 Dec 1882, his widow Civility SULLIVAN Parker petitioned the Probate Court in Madison County, Florida for appointment as administrator of the estate of Robert Parker. Robert died 14 Nov 1882, and Civility, his widow, sold 160 acres of land in Sections 9 and 10 of Twp. 2 south, Range 11 east to W. T. Sullivan. This is the same land that Robert purchased in 1857 from the government. W. T. Sullivan was very likely William Thomas Sullivan (1850-1825), Civility's nephew and son of Jefferson Sullivan (1822-1900). William Thomas Sullivan, married Amanda Stroud and there is a Stroud Cemetery about 1 mile to the west of this property.

     A search of all know cemeteries in Madison County, Florida did not yield Robert's grave site. There are, however, several unmarked adult graves in the Stroud Cemetery (Section 4, Twp. 2 south, Range 11 east) which is located about 1 mile to the west of the above described lands. Robert Ransom could be buried in this cemetery.

William Sullivan1

M, b. circa 1790, d. circa 1857
     William was born circa 1790 at Georgia, United States.2 He was the son of William Sullivan and Mary Elizabeth (--?--). He married Lydia Peacock, on 23 March 1813 at Bulloch, Georgia, United States.1 William died circa 1857 at Worth, Georgia, United States.3
     William's occupation: Farmer.
Biography of William Sullivan:
William Sullivan (1790-1857) is the son of William Sullivan (c1755-c1840). The earliest record we have found of William (1790-1857) is dated July 1812 where William Sullivant, Sr. and William Sullivant are listed on the Direct Tax Digest of Montgomery County, Georgia as listed in the "Republican and Savannah Evening Ledger" of 14 July and 28 July 1812.
     
     On 23 March 1813 a licence was granted to William Sillavant to be married to Lidda Peacock by Stephen
McCoy, C.C.O.. This record is recorded on page 174 in Bulloch County, Georgia Marriage Record Book 1A. As was the case with most of the other marriage licences recorded in this book, there was no return or other indication to show that the marriage took place or the date that it took place.

     William and his family could not be clearly identified in the 1820 Census of Georgia. There are two William Sullivan's listed as Heads of Household in 1820. One William in Montgomery County is undoubtedly the family of William (c1755-c1840). The other is a William age 26-45 listed in Emanuel County. This could be William (1790-1857) although there are no females of Lydia's age listed in this record. Emanuel County was formed out of Montgomery County in 1812 with its border with Montgomery County along Pendelton Creek where the Sullivan families lived. Thus these families are likely related. Also William (1790-1857) continues to appear in the records of Montgomery County after 1820 suggesting that he and his family were possibly enumerated with his father in 1820.

      A William Sulivan Jr. from Montgomery County won Lot 128-9 in Monroe County, Georgia in the 1821 Land Lottery. What happened to this land has not been traced to determine if William Jr. ever moved onto it.

      By 1830, William Sullivan Jr and Sr are listed as head of family in the Lee County, Georgia Census.

      In 1840, William Sullivan, age 50-60, is listed as head of household in Lee County, Georgia.

     In 1850, William Sylovint, age 60, born Georgia is listed with the family of his son, Wm. Sylovint age 22 in the Irwin Co. Georgia Census

     Prior to residing in Irwin County in 1850, William likely lived in Florida. This is borne out by the following notes taken by Judge Guy
McClain of Lafayette County, Florida on 10 Jan 1953. "I visited John
Sullivan, aged and blind at Alton, Fla. He said his father was John
Sullivan and his grandfather William
Sullivan. They came from southern part of Georgia and drove a herd of cattle first to Payne's Prairie south of Gainesville, lost most of the cattle. Stayed there about 2 years. They then came to Lafayette Co., then Madison or Jefferson Co. about 1847 settled on place now owned by Harry
Putnal..."
[Notes copied by Gladys Altman, who in turn sent them to Estelle Lencses, who in turn sent them to the authors] This is further supported by the marriage record of William Manning Sullivan (1828-1883) to Rebecca Shiver in Alachua Co., Florida in 1847 and the fact that William Sullivan (1790-1850) is found living with his sons, William Manning Sullivan family in 1850 in Irwin County, Georgia. Shivers are also found living nearby.
     An extraction of the Albany Patriot Newspaper of 19 November 1857 contained the following legal notice:

     "William Sullivan makes application to this court for letters of guardianship on the person and property of Solomon, Clemont T. and Elminia Sullivan, minors of William Sullivan, deceased." This is the last public record of William (1790-1857) that the authors have been able to find. It is thus assumed that William died about 1857 in Worth County, Georgia.

Lydia Peacock

F, b. circa 1795, d. circa 1845
     Lydia was born circa 1795 at Georgia, United States.1 She married William Sullivan, son of William Sullivan and Mary Elizabeth (--?--), on 23 March 1813 at Bulloch, Georgia, United States.2 Lydia died circa 1845 at Lee, Georgia, United States.
     Biography of Lydia Peacock:
The authors have made a moderate effort to determine the parentage of Lydia Peacock without success. Mr. John J. Pierce, genealogist of the Peacock Family Association has "suggested" without any proof that Lydia is the daughter "of Samuel
Peacock, who died about 1819 in Bulloch County (Georgia). Although that Samuel had hundreds of acres in land grants and was a Justice of the Peace several times, there doesn't seem to be any estate record for him, nor any explanation for what became of his land. His wife was Elizabeth Futch. This much is known because John Futch of Barnwell County, SC, gift deeded him land out of love and affection for his daughter. Samuel Peacock himself doubtless came from Barnwell County, and was must likely the son of Abraham Peacock (ca. 1732-after 1793), who moved there from North Carolina in ca. 1769." The authors have spent considerable effort pursuing this matter and were not able to find any further information to support Mr. Pierce's "suggestions".

     Mr. Pierce also suspects that John Peacock
(1793-1870) of Bulloch County, Georgia, who married Drusilla
Sullivant in Bulloch County, Georgia on 10 Nov 1813, is the brother of Lydia. Mr. Pierce also suggests that Drusilla is the brother of William Sullivan, husband of Lydia. Many of John
Peacock's, children moved into Jackson County, Florida bearing many of the same family names found in the family of William
Sullivan and Lydia Peacock. Lydia had 12 children over a 20 year period that we know about. She may have had others that did not survive to maturity. Lydia likely died after 1840 as she was not enumerated with her husband William in the 1850 Census of Irwin County, Georgia. Thus it is assumed she died in Lee County Georgia circa 1845. This is based in part on the birth of her last known child, Clement in 1842.
