She was very young when her mother died. She spent much of her youth
in the households of various relatives, virtually as a servant. After her
father died, she went to live with her Aunt Hattie McMillan. They lived
on the right just as you enter the Fair grounds in Fayetteville.
Grandma Beadie had no real home of her own. Probably because of this,
she became extremely serious, frugal and hard-working. She would work in
the cotton fields with the men, then come home and prepare a large meal.
She was an exceptionally good cook.
Grandma Beadie was a beautiful young woman, intelligent, hardworking.
She went from nothing to having a home, family and money. Yet, because
of childhood scars, she was never to feel secure and life was always a
bleak place for her.

He was a renter farmer (share-cropper) in his younger days. He and his
family moved around a lot. Bought a farm in Howell as the Great Depression
was beginning. Quickly lost it. In 1940, he bought out Martin Routt's and
Mary Gilliam Brook's shares in the old Polly Taylor place and settled down
there. The grandchildren always remembered visiting this place and playing
in the creek, hunting Easter eggs in the front yard or eating mulberries
off the tree in back next to a big sink hole. The house is still there.
His daughter Edith remembers Grandaddy as overbearing. A strict disciplinarian.
The children were pleased when he went to town by himself on Saturdays
to watch movies, leaving them alone. A bit of a bully, but knew just how
far to go before his hand was called.

He was always helping people. When Jim's mother died, he had to take
a big hand in the housework and raising the other kids. When the other
children grew up and moved off, Jim staid on to farm the home place. after
A.J.'s death, the property was going to be sold for taxes. Jim came up
with the money, but then gave out shares to his sister and brothers.
It was Jim, who helped John George to make his escape from jail and
hanging for the murder of Hosea Towry.
Jim hid George overnight in a hollow chestnut log, then rode him to safety
Not an ambitious man, Jim Childress was easy-going, content with the
simple pleasures and old ways. He enjoyed setting out all kinds of fruit
trees and berry bushes and offering samples to passers by. The well in
front of the house was a favorite stopping place. Far and wide,
Jim was known for his kindness and generosity.
The last time his grandson Elmer saw him was when he drove to town and
brought him back a slate and brother Ellis a rubber ball.

He owned a steam driven traction thresher and did threshing for other
farmers. Mama Routt and Grandma Taylor would have a tizzy when he drove
it around and tore up their yard.
At first, May lived on Routt hill (upper Cowley Hollow) in the house
where Mammy was born. About 1920, he bought the old Polly Taylor place
at Fussy Hill. His first house there caught on fire and burned down. Aunt
Dana Routt was on a visit just then and by the time Papa got her and her
wheelchair out, he wasn't able to save anything else.
May donated a lot across the hill for the Pleasant Grove Church (Fussy
Hill). Then, he deeded over the remainder of his place to his three children.
Granddaddy Dunn and Mammy lived there a long time after buying out the
shares of Martin Routt and Mary Gillum Brooks.

A.J. Childress lived with his father James, Sr. around Mary's Grove
when he married one of the widow Mary George's daughters. He remained on
the George place on Washburn Creek when the rest of the Childresses moved
on to the newly opened lands in Tippah Co., Mississippi. He held a teacher's
certificate and was apparently well educated. His handwriting can be found
on many legal documents.
Yet strangely, this educated man never taught his sons to read nor write.
A.J. was active in politics as a Democrat and was elected to a term
as Registrar of Lincoln Co. in 1872. He served as Justice of the Peace
for the 19th Civil District which, in those days, entitled him to many
of the powers and duties of a judge.
Not too surprisingly, A.J.'s children by his first wife were not happy
at his second marriage. Jim felt that his stepmother took advantage of
and neglected his father. Once, Jim had to fetch him and carry him on his
back to his house. The feeble A.J. had been left alone at home without
anyone to care for him.

She came to Tennessee in a covered wagon at the age of two.
She suffered greatly under Yankee occupation. During the course of the
war, the whole area was stripped of everything that could be stolen or
confiscated. Once the Phillips were sitting at a meal, when yankee soldiers
came in, pushed them away and took their place at the table.
Not long after the Battle of Shiloh, Mr. Dollar returned from Mississippi
with the bad news about Mary's husband, but she just waited. She ran a
bill up at her brother Steve Walker's store. Her taxes went unpaid. After
the War, Steve ended up with the farm. But, she never stopped looking for
her husband to return.

He was raised around Rogersville, Ala. During the Confederate draft,
he and others were held at a particular farm. All the prisoner "draftees"
carried fodder from the barn to sleep on. Going upstairs, so the story
goes, Mac threw his fodder down on his guard and headed for the Coldwater
area. This is how the McLemores were supposedly established in Lincoln
Mac McLemore was blind in later years and terrified of storms. Thunder
would send him to hide in the basement.

He was probably born in Edgecombe or Chatham County South Carolina,
and according to Frank Jenkins, he and his family moved by oxcart from
Georgia to Lincoln County about 1810. The 1820 census shows him living
there near his son Asa and his brother-in-law, George I. West.
This was during the Indian removal that took place in Andrew Jackson's
presidency. Through various treaties over the years, the Chickasaw territory
had been pushed back until it included only an area in Northern of Mississippi.
By this time, they had become fairly civilized. About a fourth were mixed
bloods who farmed, carried on business, and could hardly be distinguished
from the white settlers who coveted their land.
In 1830, Congress passed the Indian Removal Act. But, more importantly,
Mississippi and Alabama Legislatures extended their laws to cover Indian
lands. Chickasaws found themselves without protection from whites. An Indian
chief or elder claiming any authority was subject to a $1,000 fine. The
indians appealed to President Jackson to protect them according to federal
treaties. When he refused, they were forced into negotiations at Franklin
The Chickasaws agreed to sell their lands and move West as soon as a
suitable home could be found. Adults were to be given homesteads which
they could sell independently. The remainder of the 6,422,400 acres was
to be offered at public sale. Surveying lands and selling of individual
allotments began in 1832. The sudden influx of gold and silver created
a boom atmosphere, attracting every sort of trader and speculater. Speculating
companies bought most of the land, paying anywhere from the minimum $1.25
to $1.60 per acre. Of course, many an Indian was made drunk and swindled.
In 1836, James and most of his family moved to the new lands opening
up in Northern Mississippi. He was a Baptist preacher and was encouraged
to preach there at a new church. Antioch Primitive Baptist church was formed
in Tippah County in July of that year.

He It's not clear how Henry accumulated his property. We know he bought
at least parts of Robert Buchanon's 640 acre grant and Robert Henry's 300
acre grant (TG#5307 GB A, p.560), because he later sold tracts from them
to sons Jefferson (DB H-1, p354; DB I-1)and John. (DB I-1, 220) The Buchanan
tract had been bought from James and Polly S. Walker. (DB G, p267) His
property in more modern times was called the Rambo farm. It was included
in a 2,550 acre tract owned by Robertson Clark that was sold in 1895 to
settle his estate. (Chancery Ct. Book 18, pp.526-41) It had come into the
hands of Joseph R. Smith. Jr., who borrowed $50,000 on it Oct. 1, 1921.
The property contained seven tracts. When Smith defaulted on his five-year
note, Equity Life Insurence bought it at the courthouse door. Frank Rambo
purchased it from them Sept. 10, 1936 and went to great expense to renovate
the old house. The acreage was calculated at 1,166.77 then. (Deed Book
O-5, page 356) Frank sold off part of the propery in 1950 to Mary H. Cunningham.
