Haynes, Imogene (b. 14 JUL 1875, d. 06 MAY 1971)
Note: Imogene was a graduate of the Harrell Institute at Muskogee,
when that city was in Old Indian Territory. She completed the
classical course at the Fayette College at Fayette Missouri.
She was a graduate of a school of expression in New York City.
For four (4) years she was a teacher of oratory and expression
in Alabama. After marrying Robert, their home on South Clinton
street became one of the literary and social places of Athens.

Imogene served as Chairman of the Board of the Literary Society
of Athens from 1921 through 1959. She remained on the board
until her death in 1971.

Imogene ran the paper, Alabama Courier, for several years after
the death of her husband. She then sold the paper to Steele

death in 1973; and the heirs then sold the property to Dr.
Thomas and Jerry Honeycutt and their children.

A portrait of Imogene hangs in the Genealogical Society and

Rawls, Sarah Blanche (b. 15 OCT 1869, d. 20 JAN 1946)
Note: From The Fayetteville Observer
June 30, 1887,
Items of Individuals;
Misses Blanche and Lizzie Rawls of Blanche were stopping with
relatives in town last week. The latter was returning from a
visit to Winchester.


The Community of Blanche is named in her honor. After her
marriage to Jim Toney, she and her new husband moved to Madison
Crossroads. When the U. S. Post Office decided to put in a
post office in the area, it was put in the back room of an old
store which was on the corner of present day Bates Rd. and Old
Railroad Bed Road. Blanche was appointed the first
"POSTMISTRESS" as she liked to be called in 1899, a position
she held until 1902. The Post Office was named in her honor,
since the post office at Pleasant Plains was named for her
first name Blanche the people decided to name it for her last
name "Toney".
Blanche and Jim lived in the community of Toney until they
moved to Birmingham around 1904; from there they moved to
Florida, where Jim was killed in an automobile accident.
Blanche died there some time later.


The Biography of Blanche Rawls


The community of Blanche, Tennessee was named in honor of
Blanche Rawls in 1873. The following is the biography of
Blanche Rawls as I know it.
Sarah Blanche Rawls was born October 15, 1869 to parents John
J. and Joan Madeline Bearden Rawls. Blanche's father John J.
Rawls owned and operated a general merchandise store in the
community for 50 years. Blanche's sister Margaret married Alex
Austin, the founder of Ardmore.
Miss Rawls attended the Methodist Church of Blanche and was
educated at the Blanche School. According to family lore,
Blanche attended the Blanche Male and Female Academy, but the
length of her attendance is not known.
A ceremony at the Blanche Methodist Church united Blanche to
James E. Toney, February 20, 1890. The wedding was the social
event of the community, with a huge reception and party at the
home of her parents.
Blanche and Jim moved to Madison Cross Roads, Alabama and made
their home. They became the parents of 6 children; Madeline,
Bernard, Kinnard B., James E., Jr. and West. A daughter was
stillborn Nov. 30, 1895. James, Junior became the assistant
District Attorney of Tallahassee, Florida.
Jim and Blanche opened a store on the corner of present day
Bates Road and Old Railroad Bed Road. Blanche ran the store
while Jim worked at other jobs. In 1897, Jim was contracted to
build part of the railroad that ran from Capshaw, Alabama to
Fayetteville, Tennessee. Apparently Jim was responsible for
clearing the land used in the construction of the railway.
The United States Post Office decided to open a Post Office in
this corner of Madison County in 1899. It was decided that the
Post Office would be in the back of Toney's store. The Post
Office official wanted to name the Post Office after Blanche
since she was the one who operated the store and was to be the
Postmistress. Blanche pointed out that Blanche, Tennessee was
named after her and in wouldn't seem right to have 2 Post
Offices named Blanche so close together. After a little
thought, a new name was put on the application. The community
of TONEY, Alabama was born. Blanche Toney was Postmistress of
the TONEY POST OFFICE from 1899 until 1902.
In 1904 Jim and Blanche sold their store and moved to
Birmingham, Alabama. No one remembers why they moved, but one
relative thinks that Jim was pursuing work.
After a brief stay in Birmingham, the Toney family moved to
Florida. Jim Toney was killed in a car accident sometime
afterwards. The exact year is not known. Blanche and her
children remained in Florida until her death, January 20, 1946.

Calvert, Stephen (b. BEF 1739, d. 1790)
Note: Stephen Calvett II was living in Johnston County in 1771 when
he was "granted 200 acres of land located on the north side of
the Neuse River on the fork of Bear Swamp on the Main Road.
Stephen sold this property November 26, 1774 to William Farmer.
After selling this property in Johnston County, Stephen Calvet
II returned to Onslow County where again he sold property.
5 January 1787 Stephen Calvet sold to Thomas Davis for 10
pounds 100 acres on the West side of Great Juniper on the
Spring Branch.
Stephen Calvet II served his country as a soldier in the
Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. He enlisted
December 18, 1781 and was assigned to Coleman's Company, 10th
regiment and was promoted to the rank of Corporal in April
1782.
After his death in 1790 Stephen's wife Ruth petitioned the
courts for "all the final settlement certificates," apparently
seeking a widow's pension. It reads:

Calvet, Stephen: Power of Attorney from Ruth (+) Calvett of
Onslow Co., NC Oct. 17, 1791, who appoints Nathan Sylvester,
attorney, to receive in her name all the final settlement
certificates to which she is entitled for the services of
Stephen Calvet, dec'd., as a soldier in the Continental Line of
North Carolina, in 1782.

Stephen Calvet 11 and Ruth Davis Calvet had three children:
Stephen III, William, and Hulda Calvet. Hulda married Edward
Hussey of Onslow County, 7 May 1833. William Calvet married
Mary Jane Best of Duplin County, North Carolina, 7 November
1825. Stephen III married first to a wife whose name is not
known and second to Charlotte (maiden name unknown). It is
thought that one of his wives was a Spicer.
The two sons of Stephen and Ruth Davis Calvet, Stephen III and
William, served their country in the War of 1812. They were
both in the same Company, 3rd Regiment of Onslow County, North
Carolina."
