Notes for ABNER WITT I:

Abner Witt was a soldier of the Americsn Revolution.

 

Chattanooga Free Press Feb. 25, 1996 page F 10

 

WHITT FAMILY CAME TO AMERICA IN SEARCH OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

 

Abner Witt, a native of Amherst County, Va., and a descendant of Huguenots (French Protesrants) was one of the pioneers of uper East Tennessee. He finally made his way to Sale Creek, where he lived below the Indian boundary near his sons-in-law, Robert Patterson and Robert Gamble.

 

He was the grandson of Guillaume (William) Witt, who was born in France in 1675 and made his way to Albemarle County, Va., Guillaume Witt's father was John Witt and his mother was Ann Daux, daughter of a London merchant, Walter Daux. Guillaume Witt married Mary Daux.

 

To escape religious persecution in France, the Witts sailed in 1699 from Southampton, England, for the Virginia Conony. Guillaume Witt was one of the founders of Manakintowne, bout 15 miles from Richmond. His estate at St. Ann's Parish at Mankin County was known as Roseland. In his wwill in 1754, he left one son a gray mare, a "great Bible", a pewter basin, one plate and"half my wearing clothes." Several slaves were parceled out to the children.

 

They were Charles who married Lavinia Harbour, Benjamin who married Marianna Chastain, Lewis, Abner who married Anna Churchill, David who married John Key, III, Satah who married John Canaday, and Caleb. The Harbour sisters were children of Thomas Harbour and Sarah Witt.

 

Another son of Guillaume Witt, John, was born in 1710. His first wife was Elizabeth and the second was Lucy Littlebury. His children, in addition to the Abner who came to Sale Creek were john, littlebury, who married Jane Bennett, Charles, George, Eliisha who married Phoebe Dodd Williams, David and Lucy who married Ben Carpenter. John Witt died at Amherst County, Va., in 1782. He left 10 shillings to be divided seven of his sons,William, was given "all of the landsand personal estate goods, chattles I die possessed with."

 

Abner Witt left Virginia several years after his father's death and venutred into the frontier of the future Tennessee. A store account receipt from May 27, 1787, from the state of Franklin bears the name Abner Witt. In 1790, he bought 200 acres in Greene County from Abednego Inman. This section was later formed into Knox County.

 

In the Knoxville Gazette in 1797 there was notice that "Abner Witt offered the reward of $15 for the return of a runaway negro felloq named Jack."

 

In November 1806, Abner Witt went alone into the Caney Fork region of Cumberland in Middle Tennessee. He remained there until August of 1897 when he returned to his family and made plans to join the Pattersons and Gambles to the future Hamilton County. They had moved there December 1806.

 

Richard Waterhouse in his diary has this entry for July 3, 1813: "Left home down Tennessee Vally crossing Sale Creek, to Abner Witt's, 24 miles."

 

Abner Witt's daughter Elizabeth had married Robert Gamble. Another daughter, Rhoda, who was born in the Revolutionary year of 1776, married Robert Patterson in Knox County about 1794. Other children of Abner Witt were Jesse, John, Charles Wiley, Abner, Jr., and Delphia who married Robert Patterson.

 

In 1823, in a deposition given by Robert Patterson after the death of Abner Witt, Patterson said he had been acquainted with Abner Witt "since 1787 or 1788, with Soloman Reed since about the time of Blount's Treaty with the Cherokee Indians where Knoxville now stand."

 

An Abner Witt was an early purchaser of property at Dallas when it was the county seat and was listed as one of the first 53 citizens of Chattanooga. This apparently was Abner Witt, Jr.

 

Charles Wyley Witt, who was born in 1780, married Alabama Gibson about 1800, and they made their home at Sale Creek. The eldest son was named Gibson Witt. A daughter, Ann, married Jesse Pendergrass from a neighboring farm, and they moved to Cookeville. Other children of Charles Wylie Witt included James H. who married Jane Bryant, Abner Lewis who married Elizabeth Nolen, Almira, John P. who married Celia Moore, and Mary who married John Hodges. Two of the children married children of James Varner. Rhoda married George Varner and Samuel H. married Jane Varner. The two youngest sons married Yeager sisters of Sparta. Charles Wylie Jr., married Phoebe Emiline Yeager and Allenson married Ann Yeager.

 

Charles Wylie Witt died in 1815. His children sold the 100 acre homeplace for $400 in 1846 to Lewis Patterson, a grandson of Abner Witt.

 

Some of the descendants of John Witt, older brother of Abner Witt, also made their way to Hamilton County. He had married Elizabeth Luttrell about 1769. Their children were Elizabeth who married William Lutrell, Jesse who married Alice Brown, John, Mary who married John Jarnigan, Sarah, Margaret, Charles, William and Abner.

 

Some Witts who resided at Georgetown traced back to Charles Witt, son of Guillaume Witt. William Hopkins Witt was born just before the Civil War near Georgetown, the son of Joseph N. Witt, a great grandson of that Charles Witt. Joseph N. Witt was the son of Nathaniel Witt and Mary Cate and grandson of Joseph Witt and Sarah Kinbrough.

 

Joseph N. Witt was a schoolteacher, farmer, and postmaster at Meigs County. Fighting for the Union side, he was captain of Company G of the 3rd Tennessee Infantry. He married Charity Agnes Gamble and then Mary Whitmore.

 

W.H. Witt lived the last 32 years of his life at Kennewick, Wash. after settling there in 1906. His wife was Caroline Brooks. A son, William Owen Witt, remained in Georgetown. Owne Witt operated the Witt Barber Shop on Runyan Road off Highway 58. He married Grace Allen. Their children were listed as Mrs. Claire Saulters, Mrs. G.F.

FAMILY TREE AND BIOGRAPHY OF ROBERT PATTERSON

BY J.A.N. Patterson

Robert Patterson and Rhoda Witt Patterson were natives of North Carolina and of Scotch-Irish descent. They came into Tennessee and settled in the early settlement on the Watauga, and Robert Patterson was one of the heroes of the Battle of King's Mountain. He was under command of the Brigadier General Campbell, whose forces were led by Cols. Shelby and John Sevier. After the surrender of Lord Cornwallis and the Tories were settled and quieted, and general peace was restored, the forces under Shelby and Sevier returned to Wautauga and resumed their peaceful avocations and in due time Robert Patterson, when in his middle teens, having reached manhood, met with Miss Rhoda Witt, living in the same settlement. They were married and entered upon their life work, and as civilization was extended down the Holston and French Broad Rivers stoping at Knoxville, Campbell Station, Kingston, Post Oak Springs, Richland (Sale Creek) where Graysville is now located, which was the Indian boundry line at the time. In due course of time, after Roane, McMinn and Bledsoe Counties were organized, there was a Commission appointed, consisting of Messre. Richard Waterhouse, John Lock and Robert Patterson, by whom, in about 1807, Rhea County was organized, locating the County Site at the big springs three miles above Dayton at General Coulter's home, which was removed in about 1811 by the same Commission to a point near Lock's Ferry on the Tennessee River and christened it Washington. They layed out the principle streets and named them, and the Dead Man's Cave, which are there until this day. When the Capitol was moved from Knoxville, Washington came within one vote of being the State Capitol, but Murfreesboro got it.

 

Then in due course of time Robert Patterson was granted the privilege of entering the territory of the Indians, South of the Indian Line, for the benefit of the Indians, and settled on Opossum Creek at or near Bakeville now, and built a large two story log house upon whose foundation Mr. Gilbert Vandergriff afterwards built the house which his widow now lives in at Bakewell. He built a mill on Opossum Creek at or near rhe old Gresham Ford, where Jack Hickman's farm is - the mud sills of which are to be seen at this day.

 

Robert Patterson was the Pioneer of what was afterwards called Hamilton County, for in due course of time the Government purchased all the territory lying below the Indian boundary line of Rhea County on the North, Tennessee River on the East, and Bledsoe County on the West and the Georgia State line on the South, which being opened for settlement was soon ready to be organized. And in due course of time a Commission was selected consistint of Col. Charles Gamble, William Lauderdale and Robert Patterson, which preceeded at once to perform their duty, and called it Hamilton, and located the Court House at Poe's Cross Roads in the House of Hasten Poe. Then in due course of time as the territory was being more settled and the river territory increasing to such an extent, the Commission removed the County site East to a large spring near the Tennessee River and built a Court House and Jail and other necessary buildings, and located a splendid set of race tracks and called the town Dallas in honor of George M. Dallas, Who was afterward elected Vice President with James K. Polk as President of the United States. Old Dallas was a very famous town in its day, justice being meted out to those criminally inclined, according to the then Court's idea of it. The River then being the dividing line between the Cherokee Indians and the Whites, there was more or less violation of the law which gave rise to many amusing things, one of which was the return made by the famous Sheriff Mat Anderson to the Court when the law-violator beat him to the only canoe and pushed out into the stream and refused to be arrested - hence he made his return "Seeable, conversable, but not takeable".

 

Horse racing was a popular sport in that day, and those tracks were famous, being known throughout the country, and there were many fine blooded horses, some from Georgia and Middle Tennessee and even Kentucky, and the day of the races was an event which bodied the people together far and near with some of the finest bloods, and old "Lucy Walker" was there with her wonderful record as a racer, and never failed to take the prize.

From the Chattanooga Free Press, March 9, 1955

Travelers' Refuge' Second Home Built In Pioneer Period by Zella Armstrong, Hamilton County Historian

 

Robert Patterson was the first white citizen in what was later Hamilton County.

 

He was the first white man to bring a family into the new county. Many traders were living in the section but they were married to Cherokee and Chickamauga women and in many cases were adopted into the tribe and some were named chiefs. In more cases their sons became chiefs.

 

Like all pioneer homes the Patterson house, erected for the convenience of his family, the first house of planks and beams and with an elaborate chimney of Williamsburg type became necessarily a refuge for travelers when night overtook them. It was involuntarily an inn. A sign remains on one of the walls to this day, "Lodging 25 cents, Horses extra."\\I happens that I have seen enough references to the price of lodging in the period to realize that 25 cents was the standard price. Valentine Sevier, brother to Gov. John Sevier, his house being near a crossroads, asked for permission to charge more as he was "pestered" with travelers. That was when he lived in Virginia.

 

REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER

Robert Patterson, solier of the Revolution and Indian Wars, was born in North Carolina in 1763. He died in Hamilton County in 1848. He served in the Battle of King's Mountain when he was 16 years of age. He was appointed lieutenant of militia in Knox County, Tenn. to which county he had moved, Nov. 16, 1795. He moved from Knox County to Rhea County in 1795 and to what is now Hamilton County in 1807.

 

He secured from Charles McClung a part of his grant, North Carolina Grant No. 23, establishing himself on Opossum Creek, called Deep River and from his occupancy called Mill Creek. When he settled there the county was part of the Cherokee Nation. He had special permission from the United States government and the Cherokee Nation to operate a mill for the benefit of the Indians. He was the first citizen and the first man to establish an industry within its future boundaries. In addition to the mill, which was of great benefit to the Indians, he erected and conducted a school for white children, his own and a few others, as they moved into the section. His school was only preceded by Gideon Blackburn's School for Indian children at Sale Creek in 1806, and the ///daniel Ross School for Ross children in Ross' Landing.

 

Robert Patterson's log house (the first in which he lived) was also used as a church and in it Able Pearson organized the first church in the area, the Soddy Presbyterian Church, Dec. 1, 1828.

 

The heirs of Charles McClung claimed a flaw in Robert Patterson's title to his land and won the suit. He moved futher north in 1814.

 

Robert Patterson had married Rhoda Witt Patterson and survived her husband. She died in 1853.

 

Robert Patterson died in his Sale Creek home and is said to be buried in the family cemetery.

 

Scores of Chattanooga and Hamilton County citizens are descended from the Patterson, many Thatchers, the John L. Hutchenson families, Mrs. Estes Kefauver, the Lady Stephen Pigott and many others.

 

Chattanooga Free Press August 17, 1963 by Hugh Moore

 

Patterson Set Up County's First School for White

 

Robert Patterson was born in North Carolina on December 17, 1763, and served in Col. John Sevier's emergency militia during the battle of King's Mountain, Oct. 7, 1780. Mr. Patterson also saw action in other Revolutionary War skirmishes and Indian Battles.

 

Mr. Patterson moved to Hamilton County in 1807, with his wife, Rhoda Witt Patterson. They purchased part of North Carolina Grant No. 23, 300 acres on Opossum Creek, in north Hamilton County. He obtained permission from the United States government and the Cherokee Indian Nation to build a mill on the creek in 1807. This mill was the first industry established within the boundaries of Hamilton County.

 

In 1819 Mr. Patterson erected the first school for white children in the area. In this building in 1828 the Rev. Abel Pearson organized the Mount Bethel Presbyterian Church which later became the Soddy Presbyterian Church. Lewis Patterson, son of Robert Patterson, was a charter member and one of the first four ruling elders of the church.

 

In 1892 the Presbyterian Church was moved to a new location, near Soddy, which had at that time become a coal mining center. The present building, housing the First Presbyterian Church in Soddy, dates from this time. It is reported that this church is planning to move to a new building at the old location, about two miles south of Soddy. The land for the original church was donated by Robert Patterson..

 

FIRST SQUIRE

 

In 1821, Mr. Patterson was appointed as the first justice of the piece in Hamilton County, a position he held for several years. In 1822 Patterson moved from his original homestead to a new site several miles north. It is this house, now more than 140 years old which is still standing.

Obituary of J.A.N. Patterson, November 6, 1927

 

J.A.N. Patterson, pioneer in the development of Hamilton County, died Sunday, at 7:45 p.m. at his home in sale creek, where he resided all of his life. He was 90 years old, and one of the most beloved and respected citizens of the county.

 

During his entire lifetime, Mr. Patterson was actively interested in the development and affairs of Sale Creek and Hamilton County. For a number of years, he was a school-teacher. He served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, and was a prominent figure in the political affairs of his earlier days as a Democratic "wheelhorse".

 

He was one of the oldest living members of the Masonic order, having been affiliated with the organization for more than 68 years.

 

Mr. Patterson is survived by four sons, Dr. William Patterson, a physician in Springfield, Missouri; the Rev. Louis Patterson, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Savannah, Georgia, R.J. Patterson of Chattanooga, real estate broker, and John Patterson, farmer and fruit grower of Sale creek.

 

The following is a letter that J.A.N. Patterson wrote to his niece, Mrs. Frances Thatcher Moses

 

CRESENT VIEW

Sale Creek, Tennessee, March 21, 1921

 

My Dear Niece:

 

Yours of the 17th received and contents duly noted. In answer, I will say that you have asked me a question that is hard for me to snawer as you would like for me to ordinarily. There are some things you know, and you don't know. That is, you can't prove it by any living witness or by a codicil of will. We find that only the prominent actors of mention or men of mature age. My grandfather was a youth in his teens, and entered the militia, it being an emergency call, of Col. John Seviere's, with whom Robert Patterson was personally acquainted. Men of that day were men of deeds and not of wordsonly. History was repeated from Father to Son, and there were so many of the pioneers and heros of the Revolution that came along with my grandfather and settled, and I never heard it questioned. I have no book, but have Haywood's early history - Ramsey's - Shin's history of the early history of the Pioneers of Tennessee, and I had from my father's library Brazeale's Narrative of the early settlements of the Tennessee, but it was lost in the floods of Sixties or Eighties, so I don't remember whether it gave any account of him or not - all I know is that he was said to be from North Carolina into Watauga in the state of Franklin, which after became Tennessee, was with John Seviere at the Battle of King's Mountain, and after,came back to Watauga, and as the country opened up came along with the Craigheads, the Gambles, the Craigs, the Hendersons, and others, among whom were Jesse Witt and Charles Witt, who brothers to my Grandmother, Rhoda Witt Patterson, and settled on upper Sale Creek where in about 1807, he with Richard Waterhouse and John Lock organized Rhea County, all coming into this section about the same time. Now I don't know what more I can say. I have no other knowledge than that Robert Patterson was recognized as a Revolutionary solldier whose uniform was a coonskin cap, hunting shirt, and leather breeches, and whose arms were a Field Rifle, Shot Pouch, and Butcher-knife.

 

I was so glad to have you all with us that day and hope you will repeat it. Now, if I get anything further I will let you know. It has been a long time and may be that I may refresh my mind. I would like so much for you to be able to join.

 

I will close for this time.

 

Yours truly

 

J.A.N. Patterson

 

My Dear Niece:

 

Since closing my letter yesterday, I find by searching the pages of the History of Tennessee, in Chapter 14 on page 455, that Col Seviere, colonel of the Washington County Militia, on a call for service had for Captains of his regiment were: McNab, Sebiere, Haskins, Bean, Brown, Isbell, Trimble, Wilson, Gish, Stinson, Davis, Patterson, and Williams. This call was for the relief of the forces under Gen. Greer at Catawaba just before the battle at King's Mountain.

 

This is recorded in the History of Tennessee as written by the Historian. Now I am satisfied that there is more written, or should be written, for he was a valoorous man.

 

Hoping that this will lead to successful results, and that you will reach the Goal. With best wishes, I am as ever yours devotedly,

 

J.A.N. Patterson

Elizabeth Patterson

During the time of the War Between the States, Elizabeth Coulter Patterson, pictured at right, grandmother to Mrs. Troxel, married J.A.N. Patterson, a Confederate soldier, who was the grandson of Robert Patterson. It was not an unusual thing to see Mrs. Elizabeth and her husbamd ride three miles to church on horseback, she on her sidesaddle holding one of their little boys and he holding another. After the war, her husband was appointed teacher of the old Sale Creek Academy and taught there for several years. Some of the old records are still kept by the family.

 

After the slaves were given their freedom, they didn't want to leave and faithfully remained in their cabins. One of the pickaninnies, appropritely named "Free", fought many a childish scrap for her "white Folks chillun," and even when grown Aunt Free and Uncle George could always be counted on for their loyality.

 

Elizabeth died at the age of 32, leaving a family of 4 boys, the youngest only 6 years old at the time of her death. He is John Thomas Patterson who with Mrs. Patterson is still living on the old homeplace at Sale Creek. J.A.N. Patterson lived on until 1927, dying at the age of 90 years. He rode horseback up until almost a year before his death.

 

Although a new house was later built built on the place, the original homeplace is still standing, its chimney of mountain stone bravely holding their own against the ravages of time, and the cavernous fireplaces sadly reminiscent of happy family groups gathered there long ago.

 

The farm where they lived and long toiled is also now their resting place, as they are buried side by side in the old Patterson graveyard.

Notes for ALFRED TERRY HANNA:

From the 1907 Census of Confederate Soldiers, page 30, #82, Calhoun County. "Alford Terry Hanna, Anniston, Alabama. Born January 4, 1844, White Plains, Alabama, in the 10th Alabama Regiment, Company H, and continued until April 9, 1865. Paroled at Appomattox in April 1865.

 

The following was written by Alfred Terry Hanna to the Daughters of the Confederacy

 

Enlisted at the age of 17 years in Co. H-10th Regiment, Ala. volunteers went to Richmond was sent to Winchester and from there to Manassess. Spent the first winter at Orange C.H. went to Yorktown in Feb. and was there until the 2nd of May-started towards Richmond we engaged the enemy on May 25th at Williamsburg fighting for about 8 hours. The next day we continued the march on. On May 30 we engaged the enemy at Seven Pines drove them back. I was taken with fever in the field was out for four weeks. We were then in the Seven days battles around Richmond. Our Col. Woodward was killed the 10th of August. We marched to Gordonsville then to Orange C.H. On Aug. 31 we were engaged in the 2nd battle of Manasses from there to Leesburg then to Sharpsburg where we were engaged in a dawn fight then to White Hall and Oct. 29 we moved to Culpepper C.H. On the 15th of Nov. we met the enemy at Salem Church drove them back across the river. Ford John Pelham was killed. May the 1st we met the enemy at Salem Church drove them back across the river. On the 3rd we fought the battle of Chancellorsville in which we lost Stonewall Jackson. We moved June 4th to Culpepper C.H. then to Front Royal then to Charlestown crossed the river into Maryland to Sharpsburg then to Boomsborough then Hagerstown onto Greencastle Penn. Camped at Fayetteville until the Gettysburg fight July the 1st. on the 2nd I was wounded and taken to a barn which was used for a hospital. On the 4th the army fell back leaving me a prisoner. We were taken from there to West Building Prison Aug. 20. About the 25th of Sept. was sent to Fortress Monroe then to Richmond a paroled prisoner. Was exchanged in March detailed for fight at Richmond - stayed till July then joined my command at Petersburg. We spent the winter there. In March we were engaged at Five Forks in Which Col. James Shelby was killed. On April 2nd A.P. Hill was killed. That night Lee abandoned Petersburg and Richmond moved to Amelia C.H. On the 5th and 6th a great many fell out from weakness caused by hunger. We arrived at Appomattox C.H. April 7th. On the 9th we were compelled to surrender as an act of mercy to the thousands of Loyal Comrades who stood about him. It was a sad sight to see men who had faced death weeping like children. Gen. Lee had scarcely voice to say-"Men we have fought through the war together. I have done the best I could for you. I bid you all farewell."

 

On July 15, 1893 an organization of United Confederate Veterans was organized. The organizational meeting was reported in the Piedmont Inquirer. The meeting was called to order by W.J. Alexander, who explained its objective and put the motion which made A.F. Tomlin, Chairman and E.D. McCellan, Secretary. By unanimous vote the Camp was named Stewart to perpetuate the name and commemorate the soldierly of John Stewart, Samuel Stewart and Newton Stewart, all of which were brothers. The camp fire Will be lighted on the Saturday before the third Sunday in each month. Names included A.T. Hanna, Co. H, 10th Reg. Alabama. A.T. Hanna is listed as the Quartermaster of this organization.

 

The following is a letter written my Alfred Terry Hanna to his granddaughter, Jenny Sabatier of Somerville, Tennessee.

 

I volunteered in the army on February 1862 in Co. H 10 Reg Ala vol left home on the 24th of March arrived Selma, Ala. on the 25th and there awaited a day and night for a boat to convoy us to Montgomery where we arrived on the 27th and there awaited 24 hours for a train to Atlanta, Ga., where we arrived on the 28. We then went to Augusta, Ga. where we arrived the 29th the same day we got to Columbia, S.C. we then took passage for Petersburg, Va. where we arrived on the 1st of April. Next day we got to Richmond the seat of the war. We remained there a day or two we then took passage for West Point, Va. on the York River where we took passage for Yorktown where we arrived on the 3rd of April and went into camp about four miles from Yorktown we remained encamped for two days we were then ordered out on the Warick River 2 miles from Yorktown at Wynns Mills this river was the line between our forces and the Yankees the river runs South West direction from Yorktown and flows into the James River near Newport News. We were stationed on this river about a month and threw up entrenchments and on the 2nd of May we evacuated this place and fell back towards Richmond. We got to Williamsburg on the 7th and early next morning an engagement took place between a division of our troops and the enemy. The engagement continued about eight hours. We repulsed them all and killed and captured great many of them. Early next morning we began our march to Richmond and came to Chicahominy River about 30 miles from Richmond on the 11th. We camped for a few days then moved up four miles from Richmond and on the 30th of May we were ordered out to meet the enemy at Seven Pines. There we repulsed them. Very heavy loss on their side. I was then taken sick with camp fever and went to a private house in Richmond. She was so kind to me. I will never forget her kindness. She was the widow Myers a very noted lady in the city. I remained with her about two or three weeks. She charged us nothing for keeping us. Myself and my father was staying there. I returned to my regiment on the 13th of June and found the boys all in good health and fine spirits. Our brigade was composed of the 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 14th Ala. regiments commanded by Brigadier General C.M. Wilcox in Longstreets Division. On the 20th of June my brother was transferred to my company and on the 27th of June the seven day fight began and was very hard but we came out victorious over our enemy. We repulsed them on every field but we lost our colonel. He was killed. My company lost two. Killed James F. Edwards, James Mauldin and 8 or 10 wounded of of which one died, Benjamin Warre. On the 30th our Maj. go wounded and on the 4th of June the fight closed. We then moved our camp to Darbytown about 8 miles from Richmond. On the 3rd of August I went to see my father in the city. He had resigned and was going to start home. His health was so bad he could not stand the service. Our first Lieut was then promoted to captain. On the 10th of August we started on our Maryland campaign on the 11 we got on the cars for Gordonsville which is 19 miles north of Richmond. We camped there two days we then marched to Orange Court House VA 15 miles north of Gordonsville. We crossed the Rapidan River on the 19th and shelled the enemy on the Rapahanock River two or three hours. We then came to Bradley Station on the Manassas Rail Road. We had a fight at Manassas on the 31st of August. On the 2nd of Sept I stated to my regt. I had been left behind sick. I passed through the battlefield. It was a horrible seen to behold. The dead men lying all over the ground. I marched about 20 miles and found my Regt. ready to march and we marched in the direction of Leesburg. Then turned toward Drainsville. We camped there for the night. This was the 4th of Sept. We then marched for Leesburg and crossed. We then went into town. There the sick were left and the army marched in to Maryland. Crossed the Potomac River on the 11th of Sept. We arrived at Winchester on the 12th. Winchester is a beautiful but ancient city in one of the richest valleys of Virginia. The valley of the Shenandoah. About the 20th Harper's Ferry was surrendered to our army. The Sharpsburg fight also. We then went to our command on the 29th. They were camped near White Hall. We had great revivals in camp about this time. Many sought the saviour of sinners.

57. ROBERT M.8 HANNA (DELPHIA7 PATTERSON, RHODA6 WITT, ABNER5, JOHN4, WILLIAM GUILLAUNE3, JOHN2, ROBERT1 WHYTT/WITT) was born June 1834 in Benton County, Alabama, and died November 09, 1910 in Oxford, Calhoun County, Alabama. He married (1) SOFIA M. WOODS. He married (2) MARY ELIZABETH SMITH September 25, 1857 in Benton County, Alabama. She was born October 15, 1835 in Georgia, and died July 29, 1882 in Oxford, Calhoun County, Alabama.

 

Notes for ROBERT M. HANNA:

Robert was called Bob. He married on his father's fifty-second birthday, September 25 1857, in a double ceremony with his sister, Maryann Elizabeth.

 

He served in Company H, 10th Alabama Regiment under his father's command. Alabama Archive records erroneously show him ato have died of wounds suffered at the second Manassas. This calls into question the accuracy of other entries that show him as wounded at the same battle on August 30, 1862.

 

He became a Presbyterian minister and pastored the Oxford Presbyterian minister.

 

Census records show him to be called a sadler and a tinner. He moved from Calhoun County around 2868 to Polk County, Texas, where two of his children were born before he returned to Calhoun County. He raised the only child of his daughter Delphia as his own under the name of John R. Hanna rather than Payne.

 

After the death of his first wife and the mother of his children he married Mrs. Sofia M. Woods. A family tradition says that people in the congregation could tell from his sermons when things were going well with her.

 

He is buried beside his first wife in the Hanna Family Cemetery in Chosea Springs, Calhoun County, Alabama.

Notes for OLIVER PERRY ELLIS BRANNON:

SPECIAL TO THE BIRMINGHAM NEWS: Gadsden, Alabama December 13, 1907

Ellis Brannon, one of the best know citizens of Etowah County, walked off or fell of the little steamer "Dixie" near Fowlers Ferry, just below Gadsden, at four o'clock Thursday morning and was drowned. The boat brought the body back to Gadsden later in the day.

 

Mr. Brannon lived with the family on Palmeto Creek and was in the logging business. He had worked for the Kyle Lumber Company for twenty years and was an expert draftsman. Wednesday he came to town on the Dixie which towed up a raft for him and returned with the boat when it left here at 10 o'clock for another raft.

 

Mr. Brannon went to the engine room and sat down to talk to the engineer, John T. Warlick. They passed several hours together and at 4 o'clock Mr. Warlick started to some other section of the boat. Brannon arose and said that he believed that he would look after the raft. Mr. Warlick told him to remain where he was that the raft was alright. When Mr. Warlick was about to enter the engine room on his return he heard a Negro that was stationed on the upper deck yell. The boat was moved only about 200 feet and the men manned the boats and found Mr. Brannon floating on top of the water in the wake of the steamer. He had never sunk and this is considered a very strange and unusual feature of the case. It is generally believed that he died of heart disease from which he suffered before he fell into the water. There were no bruises on his body. He was 49 years of age.

 

SPECIAL TO THE BIRMINGHAM NEWS Dec. 14, 1907

CAN'T CLEAR MYSTERY OF BRANNON'S DEATH

GADSDEN, ALABAMA

The coroner's jury called to investigate the death of Ellis Brannon, supposed to have been drowned from the steamer Dixie Thursday morning brought in the following verdict : " We agree that the deceased came to his death from heart failure or some other cause , and that from the evidence before us we do not believe that he came to his death by strangulation or drowning." The belief that Mr. Brannon had met with foul play was so prevalent on Thursday morning that Judge Penn asked Coroner Woodliff to hold the inquest. It is not believed that drowning was the cause of death, but the exact cause cannot be ascertained. The witnesses told the same tale and the only evidence against the drowning theory was the statement of Dr. Appleton. He said that Mr. Brannon's stomach was absolutely free of water and that marks of violence before his death were found on his face. These were made by some sharp instrument or finger nails. There were bruises about the head that could have been made by a blunt instrument. The fact that Mr. Brannon's body floated on top of the water in the wake of the boat is the queerest thing about the case and no one has been found to explain it.
