McFerrin, James Martin (b. 14 FEB 1837, d. 03 MAR 1912)
Note: Baptized at Prosperity Church September 1843.

J. M. McFerrin served in the Confederate Army in the 8th
Tennessee Infantry Co. E., better known as the Camargo Guards.
He was a private. He was wounded on Dec. 31, 1862 at the
Battle of Murfreesboro. He went home on furlough in Jan. and
Feb. 1863 to heal from his wounds. He returned for duty in
March 1863. He took the oath of allegiance to the United
States on Feb. 06, 1864.
His description was as follows: COMPLEXION: light HAIR:
light EYES: Blue HEIGHT: 5'11"

Items from the Fayetteville Observer:

October 7, 1886:
LOCAL LACONICS

Mr. J. M. McFerrin has left at this office two cotton stalks
that are worth examining. They contain more large thrifty
bolls than we have seen before. In Georgia, it is said, this
kind, which is known as Mammoth Prolific, has a record of three
bales per acre.

July 5, 1888
CAMARGO- J. F. Clark and family and Misses Bettie and Maggie
Moore are visiting at J. M. McFerrin's Friday.

8th Tennessee Regiment Reunion

The annual reunion of the 8th Tennessee Regiment was held at
Petersburg on the 2nd and 3rd inst., and from the size of the
crowd there seems to be a growing interest with the old
soldiers. There was the largest attendance of any meeting we
have had. As the sun began to sink behind the western horizon,
the old veterans began to assemble in the beautiful grove
previously selected and well provided with seats and stand.
And, oh, what a feast it was of handshaking and mingling, of
"howd'ys" and smiles which made us glad that we were one of the
boys. After the usual salutations and jokes, supper was
announced. It was prepared by the people of Petersburg, was fit
for a king, and was a credit to those who supplied it. To say
that we did justice to the eatables is expressing it mildly. It
seemed each one vied with his neighbor in the amount of good
things he wrapped himself around and how much of "COW BILL'S"
coffee he could hide. We call him COW BILL not because
everybody else does, but for the reason that we found so much
of the milk of human kindness in his composition. After the
hearty repast we engaged in conversation, and enjoyment and
happiness were unbounded. After some consultation it was
thought best to call a meeting for the transaction of the
business so as to dispose of such matters and devote the next
day to the pursuit of pleasure. This arrangement met the
endorsement of all.

Accordingly the meeting was called to order by the president,
R.J. SMALL, and the minutes of the last meeting were read and
approved. The roll was then called and although some were
absent it was pleasant to learn that not one of our number has
been removed by death. After the transaction of other business,
an election was held which resulted in the selection of the
following officers to serve the ensuing year: President, CDL.
C.C. MCKINNEY; 1st vice pres., J.M. MCAFEE; 2nd vice pres.,
GEO. C. CARMACK; 3rd vice pres., G. LOGAN; 4th vice-pres., J.M.
McFERRIN; 5th vice-pres., T.L. WILLIAMSON; treasurer, Dr. A.M.
HALL; secretary, JAS. W. RAWLS.

The selection of a place for the next meeting was then in
order. Several places were suggested and after some discussion
it was decided to hold the next meeting at Wells Hill the
second Wednesday and Thursday nights in September, 1892.

The meeting then adjourned to hear a speech from CDL. H.H.
SAVAGE, "the old man of the mountain." We repaired to the
Russell House with the Petersburg string band, and after a
serenade the Colonel came out in response to repeated calls and
made a speech such as he alone cam make. At the close of his
remarks CDL. SAVAGE introduced his friend from McMinnville, who
told in a pleasant way how much he was indebted to the Eighth
for saving his life by bearing him off the field at
Murfreesboro when he was thought to be mortally wounded.

Calls were then made for JOE CARRIGAN. After a time JOE
appeared and seemed mad because we made him come out. He seemed
to try to see how big a speech he could make. His cow-skin
story was enjoyed.

Calls were made for CAPT. GEO. W. HIGGINS, who tried to beg
off. It was compromised by his telling a story, which he did in
his matchless way.

The morning of the 3rd found us much refreshed from the night's
rest. On going to the grounds we found COW BILL engaged in
making coffee. We partook of the refreshments and were
impatient for the exercises to begin.

MRS. HOWELL BLEDSOE and MISS ELLEN BLAKE appeared with an
abundance of evergreens and beautiful flowers, with which they
artistically decorated the stand. Just as they had finished
their work the Elk Band appeared and began discoursing sweet
music, and contributed largely to the enjoyment of the day. We
want to congratulate Fayetteville upon having such a splendid
band.

The stand was then taken possession of by COL. J.H. SAVAGE and
HON. A.S. MARKS. The Colonel led off and delivered a masterly
address. The soldier boys have a warm and tender regard for
him, and he is always listened to with wrapt attention. He was
followed by the latter, who made one of the best speeches it
was every our good fortune to listen to. It was eloquent,
bristled with humor and replete with logic and sensible
suggestions.

It was then suggested that donations be made to the indigent
soldiers. MR. G.C. GILLESPIE, although not a soldier, was the
first to respond. In a substantial way he showed his
appreciation of the patriotism and self-sacrificing spirit of
the "heroes in gray with hearts of gold."

Dinner was announced, and never before did we see such a
bountiful supply and such a great variety of bodily aliments.
We addressed ourselves to the task of disposing of the good
things, and the manner in which this was accomplished was proof
positive that it was an enjoyable feast.

We have promised to furnish the county papers with an
alphabetical list of the soldiers, which we will do in the near
future.

NOTE: The paper was scanned through the end of the year for the
promised list, but not located.

August 26, 1897:
We enjoyed a watermelon supper at Mr. James McFerrin's last
Friday night. Quite a number of old and young people were
invited guests. The supper was elegant in every detail, and
Mrs. McFerrin as the hostess and her accomplished daughter as
assistant, the fullest of social pleasures was assured and
realized.

April 21, 1898:
Camargo,
Mr. James McFerrin and wife and two sons, Lowry and Ollie, of
Yukon, visited Mrs. Dave Hamilton, their daughter, this week,
reaching there in time to lament with her the untimely end of
her little shepherd puppy, which was attacked, killed and
devoured by a greedy, worthless, never-to-be-filled "hound
dog". The only consolation to be had was that Mr. Hamilton
killed the hound.

June 8, 1898:
Blanche,
James McFerrin and family of Yukon, worshipped at Blanche on
the 5th sabbath and visited their daughter Mrs. Bishop.

February 9, 1899:
Camargo,
Mr. James McFerrin and wife, of near Yukon, have been visiting
their son, Otie, near this place.

May 1900:
Mr. James McFerrin has gone to Louisville, Kentucky to the
soldiers Confederate Reunion.

February 20, 1902:
YUKON - On Friday there was a dinner of the same kind at James
McFerrin's, celebrating his birthday. Dr. J. D. Bryan, of
Camargo, and Lee McFerran, though of different ages, it has
been their custom for several years for one to furnish the
dinner and this was Jim's turn. Although the day was very
inclement there were about forty persons present, and report an
abundance of grub. Mr. McFerran was 65 years on that day. He
is one of the old Confederate soldiers, known in this section
as "Watermelon Jim".

June 26, 1902:
YUKON - Mr. J. M. McFerran and son Collins were in Huntsville
last week.

February 26, 1903:
CAMARGO - The 14th day of February is J. M. and M. L.
McFerrin's and Dr. J. D. Bryant's birthday and they take it
time about entertaining. This time it was to be at J. M.
McFerrin's, but about the time they all got ready to start it
set in to rain, and there wasn't anyone present besides Dr.
Bryant and his presented Lee with a nice cup and saucer.

May 14, 1908
Confederate Reunion
Reports that a Confederate Reunion would be held June 9, 1908
in Birmingham, AL. It goes on to tell of special rates on
railroad fees, hotel fees and such.

August 26, 1909
Confederate Veteran's Reunion to be held September 15 and 16.
Mr. J. M. McFerrin is on the dinner committee.

March 7, 1912:
Mr. James McFerrin died at his home at Camargo at 11 o'clock
Sunday night, March 3, 1912, aged 75 years. A better man never
lived in Lincoln county; his trust was of such sublime nature
that there was not a shadow of doubt and he lived on the
mountaintop of faith. His religious convictions governed and
controlled his relations with his fellowman and no person can
say he was guilty of sharp dealings. The influence of such a
man is a tower of good in a community and when he dies it is a
public calamity. During the war, knowing the cause of the
South to be just, he enlisted under the Stars and Bars and was
in the Eight Tennessee Regiment and did everything in his power
for the principles he esposed. His companions in arms say
there was not a better soldier in the ranks, and after the
cessation of hostilities he returned to peaceful pursuits and
was as good a citizen as he had been a soldier. He was reared
in the A. R. P. Church and believed in the tenets of that
denomination. The aged wife, who survives him, is in feeble
health. He is the father of Mr. Collins McFerrin and Mrs.
David Hamilton, of Fayetteville. Burial at Prosperity after
funeral service by Rev. W. A. Kennedy.
