Wheeler Family

This family is well-documented all over the place, but there are still discrepancies. From Andrew Lindsey Wheeler forward, I feel relatively confident of his descendants, since my mother knew most of them personally. There are still some things that can't be proven. For instance, where did Andrew Lindsey Wheeler and Mary Elizabeth Jones get married? Years later he said he went back to Scottsboro after the Civil War and married her in 1865. However, their marriage doesn't show up in Jackson County, Alabama, in the online files. Were they married by a preacher who didn't record the marriage? Is there a record in the courthouse that isn't online? Were they married in another county or another state altogether? Enjoy the stories in the later generations.

Descendants of Richard Wheeler
Generation No. 1
1. RICHARD1 WHEELER was born 1730 in England, and died Unknown.

Generation No. 3
3. AMOS3 WHEELER (RICHARD2, RICHARD1)2,3,4 was born 18 Nov 1778 in Cumberland, Allegheny County,
Maryland5, and died Abt. 1855 in Gilmer County, Georgia. He married SARAH F. SNOW 09 Jan 1800 in
Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina, daughter of LESTER SNOW. She was born 28 Jun 1782 in Del--,
2
Maryland, and died Abt. 1870 in Ellijay, Gilmer County, Ga.
Notes for AMOS WHEELER:
1850 Federal Census Amos and Sarah are living with 2 chldren: Nancy and James. Since Nancy's last name is
still Wheeler at age 47, we can guess that she has never married. James is 28. Amos and Sarah say they were
born in Maryland. Nancy and James say they were born in North Carolina. Next to him is Sarah Wheeler, his
daughter or daughter-in-law, with her children. Since her last name is Wheeler and she has a houseful of children,
we have to wonder whether she is a daughter or a daughter-in-law. On the other side of Sarah are Richard and
Catherine, Amos' son and daughter in law. The day of the month is impossible to read, and could be a 6, an 8 or a
9. We can guess it is not 6, because the prior page was done on the 7th. The next page is done on the 10th, so we
guess September 8-9, 1850. Sarah and Nancy cannot read or write. Amos is a farmer with real estate worth
$700. An occupation is not listed for James, which is highly unusual for a grown man. STATE: GA COUNTY:
Gilmer HH #: 289 LINE #: 1735 page 368 Roll M432_70 Subdivision 33, Gilmer, Georgia
In the 1820 census, there is an Amos Wheeler in Wilkes County, NC, with
1 male under 10 (Alford)
2 males 10 to 16 (Richard, Absolum)
1 male 16 to 26
1 male 26 to 45
3 females under 10 (Elizabeth, Sarah, Fannie)
1 female 16 to 26 (Nancy J.)
1 female 26 to 45 (Sarah)
While this could be his family, it would not account for William and Polly. One researcher says Polly died as a
very young child, so this could account for that.
A few researchers list his place of birth as Queen Anne County, Maryland. However, this doesn't seem to fit with
any other facts.
An interesting sideline about Wheelers in Guilford County, North Carolina: In addition, Josiah and Ann
Tomlinson & Stephen Ve(d)dito are all 3 listed as original members in 1790 in the Springfield Monthly Meeting
(Quaker) in Guilford County North Carolina along with numerous Hunt, Mendenhall, Hogatt, Hayworth, Kersey,
Baldwin, Rudduck, Thornburg, Stanley, Wheeler, Wilson, Wright, Hayworth, Gardner & a few other surnames.

CHURCH, daughter of AARON CHURCH and NANCY OWENS. She was born 28 Dec 1810 in Wilkes County, North
Carolina, and died 14 Apr 1895 in Mulberry, Wilkes County, North Carolina. He married (2) ELIZABETH A.

born 12 Apr 1812 in North Carolina11,12, and died Bet. 07 Sep - Dec 1850 in Gilmer County, Georgia13.
Notes for RICHARD WHEELER:
Richard signed a bastardy bond , acknowledging that he was the father of Alfred Church, the illegtimate son of
Rachel Church, sister of Catherine Church. She later married Isham Dancy. As a child, Alfred Weeler lived with
the Dancy family. Alfred later migrated to Jackson County, Alabama, with the Wheelers. Richard died shortly
after the move to Alabama. Alfred died during the Civil War. His wife Louisa died not long after the war. Two
of their 4 orphaned children moved in with LIndsay Wheeler, as evidenced by census records. While some
researchers indicate this was Andrew Lindsay Wheeler, census records would indicate that there were two
separate people, one named Andrew Lindsary Wheeler and one named Lindsay Wheeler. Louisa Stuart Church is
buried in the Wheeler family cemetery on Sand Mountain, Alabama.
In the 1830 census, there is a listing for a Richard Wheeler, aged 20 to 30, with one female aged 15 to 20. This
couple is listed next to Aaron Church.
In the 1840 census, there is a listing for a Richard Wheeler of the right age. His family consists of 2 males under
5, 1 male 15 to 20, 1 male 30 to 40, 2 females 5 to 10, 1 female 20 to 30. That would be consistent with his
family as we know it, except for the male 15 to 20. The male children would hav been James A. Wheeler and
Andrew Lindsey Wheeler. The female chldren would have been Sarah Adeline Wheeler and Martha A. Wheeler.
In the 1841and 1842 school census, for the Lewis Fork District, Number 48, (Captain Wheeler's District), Richard
Wheeler is listed as a head of household, with Adeline, Martha and James enrolled in school. Richard is also
listed on the farm census for 1839. (From Mary Satterfield Wheeler)
Mary Satterfield Wheeler believes his move to Georgia occurred in 1848 but does not state sources for that
information.
In the 1850 census, Richard and his family are living in District 33, Gilmer County, Georgia when the census is
taken on September 7. He lists his occupation as miller. He says he was born in North Carolina. Catherine says
she is 38, meaning that she was born in 1812. They live near Sarah Wheeler, Amos and Sarah Wheeler (and
Nancy and James, who live with their parents). His wife cannot read and write. Eight children are at home. All
of teh children of school age attended school within the last year, even the child who is 19.
Mary Satterfield Wheeler believes his move to Sand Mountain, Jackson County, Alabama occurred in 1852. She
says, "It is thought that Richard chose his homesite because of the waterfall on the
property. This waterfall was the source of power for his mill. The homesite is located where Pond Creek runs
into Flat Rock Creek." She also says that a housekeeper named Elizabeth Garren followed the family from
Alabama to Gilmer County, Georgia. She says, "Both the Garren and Wheeler families admit that he fathered her
child, David R. Garren, born June 12, 1853." Elizabeth Garren was the sister of Robert A. Garren, husband of
Sarah Wheeler, Richard's oldest daughter.
When he died, after his wife Catherine's death, he had 3 children under 16 in his home (Amanda, John Vestal and
Bethel Alexander). Wililam Wheeler was just 16 and Andrew Lindsey Wheeler was 18.
He did not marry Elizabeth Garren, but he is considered by both families to be the father of her chlid.

Notes for RACHEL CHURCH:
Rachel Church and Richard Wheeler were not married, but did have a child together. On May 5, 1829, Richard
Wheeler signed a bastardy bond, putting up $200 to guarantee the needs of Alfred Church. Rachel and her family
raised Alfred, but he went to Alabama with the Wheelers when they moved on.

5. ABSOLUM4 WHEELER (AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born 20 Jun 1808 in Guilford County, North
Carolina, and died 27 Jul 1884 in Pickens County, Georgia. He married (1) AMANDA JOHNSON. She died
Unknown. He married (2) JANE FRIX. She died Unknown. He married (3) MARY ADAMS. She died Unknown.
He married (4) ELIZABETH ELLER 10 Jan 1832 in Wilkesboro, Wilkes County, North Carolina, daughter of PETER
ELLER and MARY PENNINGTON. She was born 22 Dec 1810 in Wilkes County, North Carolina, and died 17 Oct
1890 in Pickens County, Georgia.
Notes for ABSOLUM WHEELER:
In the 1870 census, there is a child named Amanda, age 17, listed at the end of his children. She is not present in
the 1860 census, when she would have been 7. Given the time, this could easily be a brother or sister's child
orphaned by the civil war, so we need to look for her elsewhere.
In the 1880 census, he is living witih his wife Elizabeth. They are 70 and 65 years old. A daughter named Mollie
West. age 36, is living with them, with 3 children. She was born in Tennessee. By her age, we would guess that
she is Augustine E. Wheeler, however, the name of Augustine's spouse does not match. So, Mollie is likely to be
Mary A. Wheeler, also born in Tennesse, for whom I have no recorded spouse. Her children are Ella Mae, age 12
and Bascazar, age 10 (name uncertain). Also in the household is a son, Robert C. Wheeler, age 20. He is
recorded elsewhere as Robert C. Wheeler.
Mary Satterfield Wheeler says:
Children of ABSOLUM WHEELER and AMANDA JOHNSON are:
i. ALFRED LAFAYETTE4 WHEELER.
ii. DAVID CROCKETT WHEELER.
There are other children born between these children. They definitely appear in censuses when Elizabeth is the
adult female in the house. She appears before the last of the children are born, in the 1850 census, but we cannot
verify that she is the mother of all of the children.

8. SARAH4 WHEELER (AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born Abt. 1818 in North Carolina, and died Bet. 1881 -
1900 in Tennessee. She married ? CRAIG. He died Unknown.
Notes for SARAH WHEELER:
In the 1850 census for Gilmer County, Georgia, a woman named Sarah Wheeler lives next door to Amos and
Sarah Wheeler. She lists her age as 32,which would mean she was born in 1818, so we can assume she is this
Sarah. However, her last name is Wheeler and she has no husband listed. There is no evidence that any of
Amos' sons married a woman named Sarah and died before 1850. Possibly she married, had children, then
returned home and took her maiden name back for some reason. Perhaps she never married. Perhaps she is the
widow of some other Wheeler and Amos is keeping an eye on her. According to the census, she cannot read and
write.

Notes for WILLIAM KILBY VANNOY:
In the 1850 census, Mary Vannoy, 9, is living with William and Matilda and their children. She is listed after the
children rather than in chronological order. The next listing is Abraham Vannoy, 4 years younger than William.
In the 1860 census, Mary Ann Vannoy, 22, is living with William and Matilda and their children. She is listed
after the children rather than in chronological order.
In the 1870 census, he is living with his wife Matilda and their 5 children. The next listing in the census is for
Martha Vannoy, a farmer, age 37 with 4 children. The next listing after that is for Jesse Vannoy, age 88 and
Sarah Vannoy, age 62, with a child named James Vannoy, aged 7. This looks like one of those families where
death and the civil war probably disrupted individual family units and they have moved together.
His family is from North Carolina, so it seems unlikey he is the same William Vannoy who was born in Kentucky,
but stranger things have happened.

11. JAMES THOMAS4 WHEELER (AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born 05 Aug 1825 in Wilkes County, North
Carolina, and died 15 Mar 1896 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee. He married SARAH AMANDA CRAIG 15 Oct 1853
in Ellijay, Gilmer County, Georgia. She was born 20 Dec 1834 in Floyd, Virginia, and died 1900 in Bledsoe
County, Tennessee.
Notes for JAMES THOMAS WHEELER:
If the 1850 census taker is to be believed, he was actually born in 1822.
In 1860, he is again 34 instead of 36. He has real estate worth $200 and other property worth $130. His wife
cannot read or write. His mother Sarah is living in his household, aged 80.
Place of death is althernately listed as Ellijay, Gilmer County, Georgia. That seems more likely, since he was the
Sheriff there and lived there many years. However, a bunch of these Wheelers went to Bledsloe County,
Tennessee.

Generation No. 5
12. ALFRED5 CHURCH (RICHARD4 WHEELER, AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1)31 was born Bef. 05 May 1829 in
Wilkes County, North Carolina, and died 23 Nov 1863 in Fairground Hospital #1, Atlanta, Fulton County,
Georgia. He married LOUISA J. STUART. She was born Bet. 1831 - 1832 in Tennessee, and died Bet. 1867 - 1870
in Alabama.
Notes for ALFRED CHURCH:
Some researchers list the death as Cobb County, but Atlanta is in Fulton County.Alfred Church was the son of
Richard Wheeler and Sarah Chuch. When Andrew Lindsay Wheeler left North Caorlina, he took Alfred Church
with him to raise. When Alfred Church and his wife died young, Andrew Lindsay raised two of his children as
well. It appears that he married in Alabama, had one child, then returned to North Carolina and had two more
children. In 1860, he had returned to Alabama and was living in Census Division 1, Jackson County, Alabama.
He and his wife died shortly after that.
There is some evidence that Andrew Lindsay Wheeler is not the Lindsay who raised Alfred's children. One
census record shows a different Lindsay with those children. Further research is needed.
1860 census: Living in Rustic Bower, Jackson County, Alabama with his wife and children David, Rachel and
Matilda. About to join the Confederate Army. Next door neighbor is Alford Wheeler. He does not own his home
and he has personal property worth $210. He says that his oldest child was born in Alabama and the next two in
North Carolina. While it is not documented that he returned to North Carolina after moving with the Wheelers to
Alabama, it appears that he did.
There is a different Alfred Church who is listed in the National Park Service records at Andersonville. That is a
different person, from Wisconsin. That Alfred Church was also captured in Virginia and imprisoned and died at
Andersonville, all in 1864 after our Alfred died.
Text of Bastardy Bond.
State of North Carolina
Wilkes County
Know all men by these presents that we, Richard Wheeler Absalom Eller, all of the County and State aforesaid,
are held and firmly bound unto John (Brown?), Esquire, Justices of the Peace of the County aforesaid in the sum
of two hundred dollars money of the State aforesaid; to the which payment well and truly to be made, we bind
ourselves, our heirs & e jointly and severally firmly by these presents. Sealed with our seals and dated this 5th
day of May Anno Domini 1829.
THE CONDITION OF THE OBLIGATION IS SUCH. That whereas a certain Richard Wheeler si charged with
having a certain illegitimate child, begotten on the body of Rachel Church. Now if the said Richard Wheeler his
heirs, executors &e shall provide for the support and maintenance of the said child to the indemnification of the
parish of boy named Alfred Church and the county aforesaid; and perform such order as the Court shall from time
to time make in the premises, then this obligation to be void, otherwise to remain in full force and virtue.
Executed in open court
R. Martin, Clerk Richard Wheeler
Absalom Eller
This is a printed form of the state of North Carolina, with the county name and the name of the individuals written
in, so this was apparently not uncommon. Richard's brother Absolum, married Elizabeth Eller, so this was
probably a brother-in-law who stood in good stead with Richard.

Mr. J.C. Stoner
Dear Sir:
I though a stranger have melancholy news to impart to you. David R. Church brother of your wife
died yesterday morning some 11 miles from town. He had gone out in the country to attend a law
suit while there took a severe chill was taken in by one of our worthy citizens. He had all of the
medical and other attention that was necessary for one to have and was nursed and cared for as
well perhaps as if he had been under the supervision of you and his sister. His remains will be
brought to the masonic grave yard of this town this evening for interment. And will further say that
during of Mr. Churches short stay in our county and state that he accumulated a host of varied
friends both old and young all of whom are mourning his death. No young man will ever be missed
more than he will be in our country. He also held out to his religion and died a pious good christian.
Therefore we hope ours and your lost has eternal gain. He leaves plenty of means to pay all
expenses. I have his chattles and moneys in my care as we was officing and rooming together and
have been for some months.
Jas. A. Wheeler (his uncle) requested me to see to it as he is not able to attend to it as he is also
sick. I desire to hear from you soon. Be assured that while he has friends in Ala. to mourn his lost
that also there are lasting and good who will mourn the same here in Arkansas. I must close at
once.
Your friend
A.J. Witt

A piece written by Andrew Lindsey Wheeler in 1930 for the Birmingham newspaper
Notes written by A. L. Wheeler, Birmingham Alabama -1930
Andrew Lindsey Wheeler was born in Wilkes County, North Carolina, Jan. 26, 1838. At the age of ten, my
parents moved to Gilmer County, Georgia and resided for three years, during which time my mother died. Father
then brought his family to Jackson County to live near Stevenson, Ala.
The beginning of the War Between the States found me a young man of twenty-three. In the fall of '61, I enlisted
in Company "I", 55th Alabama. John Norwood, Captain, General Buckner in command. When this Company
took up its duties, I was left at home sick with chills. I joined my Company some time later at Fort Donelson,
Tennessee. While going there the first of the war, I saw a dead man all covered with ice and snow. Our first
battle was fought at Fort Donelson. There we surrendered to the enemy and were taken as prisoners to Camp
Douglass, Chicago, Ill. I remained in prison for several months, spent the greater part of that time in the hospital.
Please let me stress the fact of our good treatment while prisoners. We were given the best of medical attention
and plenty to eat--not much pie or cake, of course, but plenty of substantial food.
After being exchanged we took a gunboat for Vicksburg, Miss. and there we reorganized. I was elected third
Lieutenant and placed in command under Joseph E. Johnson, Commander in Chief, Loring being General.
Our first battle was fought at Baker Creek, near Vicksburg; thence to Jackson, Miss. No regular pitched battle
was fought there but several of our men were killed by sharp shooters. Very well do I remember how we stripped
a fifty-acre field of corn, near Jackson, Miss. Some ate the corn raw and others roasted it. We moved on from
there to Resaca, Ga. There we had light fighting as we marched on to Atlanta. Just before the battle of Peachtree
23
Creek, command was taken from Gen. Johnson and given to Gen. Hood. I was placed in command of Company I,
55th Alabama, in the absence of Captain Sisk. I went into battle as Junior Officer in command and came out
uninjured and in full command of the regiment. This battle was the greatest slaughter that I witnessed during the
entire war. Many of my most intimate friends were shot down by my side, but through Divine Providence I came
through safely. After the battle the few that were left alive assembled near Atlanta with Gen. Hood still in
command. We marched enroute to Nashville, Tenn., but before reaching there we met the enemy at Franklin,
Tenn., where the next greatest slaughter I witnessed took place. In this battle, my position happened to be on the
extreme right where there was but little fighting; the main slaughter took place on my left. Then I pressed
forward near the enemy's line to a bordock hedge which was impassable and there I remained until the last of my
company had fallen back and left me all alone. Well, I am not going to tell you that I WALKED away from the
enemy while bullets were flying thick and fast at me. The only reason I can give you as to my escape was that the
bullets and I were going in the same direction and through the aid of a large oak tree I made my escape. I have
often wanted to inscribe these words on the old oak: "Woodsman, spare this tree, touch not a bough, while in
danger, it protected me, and I'll protect it now."
Afterwards, we assembled and marched to Nashville and remained there for several days without any fighting
which gave the enemy time to reinforce down the river below Nashville. They came in on us at our rear, which
forced us to retreat and started us on our long journey to Bentonville, North Carolina. There we had a hard fight
and were successful in driving the enemy back. There I was in command of the pickets and scores of my men
were killed. After this battle, the Army was reorganized and made into full companies, and I was placed in
command of my Company. Shortly afterwards, we surrendered at Greensboro, N.C., under Robert E. Lee. Six
months after the surrender I came to Scottsboro, Alabama and married Elizabeth Jones, in 1865, and since that
time my life has been very ordinary--my chief service being the rearing of five daughters and three sons. In
providing for their various needs, I was busy and happy. On Jan. 26th next, I will be ninety-three (93) years old;
have been a member of the Baptist church for more than fifty years; and am a firm believer in God. I long for the
time to come when "they shall beat their swords into plow shares and their spears into pruning hooks, and neither
shall they learn war any more."
Sincerely,
A.L. Wheeler

Notes for ELIZABETH JONES:
Linda Smith Williams remembers being about 3 years old and standing and looking in her coffin. She thinks that
24
she would have died in 1935-1936. She remembers her wearing a lavender dress with white lace, which is what
she says they put on all of the old ladies.
In the 1850 census there is this record: Year: 1850; Census Place: District 19, Jackson, Alabama; Roll: M432_7;
Page: 18; Image: 37. Mary Jones is 6. Head of household is Willis, born in Alabama. Wife is Eliza.
In the 1880 census, she says her father was born in Virginia and her mother in Alabama.
In about 1900, Mary Elizabeth started saying she was about 10 years younger than she had claimed earlier. In the
1900 census, she says she has 10 children, 8 of whom are living.
In the 1920 census, she says both of her parents were born in Alabama. Of course, the inconsistencies could
easily be mistaken recording by the census taker.
In the 1930 census, she says her parents were both born in Alabama.

Notes for INFANT WHEELER:
In the 1900 census, Mary Elizabeth Jones Wheeler refers to 10 children she had. My mother knew
about one of those, but not about a second one. This is a placeholder for that second infant.
17. WILLIAM HARRISON5 WHEELER (RICHARD4, AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born Aug 1840 in Wilkes
County, North Carolina42, and died Aft. 1920 in Probably Fayette County, Texas. He married EMMA TOLLE Abt.
187343. She was born Jun 1854 in Texas, and died Unknown.
Notes for WILLIAM HARRISON WHEELER:
In 1856, when his father died, he went to Galveston, Texas, with a lady named Mary Gay. According to Mary
25
Satterfield Wheeler, he never returned to Alabama. In 1860, this same William is living as an apparent boarder
in the home of Minerva Lassiter.
In 1870, he is not in the census for Fayette County, Texas. Hoewver, he married, apparently in Texas in 1873, so
this must be about the time he came here.
In 1900, William and his wife and children are living in Texas. His wife was born in Texas, so he apparently
moved there before he was married. He and his wife have had 6 children, all of whom are living. Four are still at
home. They have been married 27 years. Everyone in the household can read and write. They own their home,
free of mortgage.
The 1910 census picture will not open
In the 1920 census, there are just William and Emma. It looks like they are living on Parr Avenue.

18. JOHN VESTAL5 WHEELER (RICHARD4, AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born 30 Mar 1845 in Wilkesboro,
Wilkes County, North Carolina44,45,46, and died 04 May 1924 in Pisgah, Jackson County, Alabama. He married
(1) CALEDONIA F. DERRICK 07 Jan 1869 in Jackson County, Alabama page 697 line 1169, daughter of J. DERRICK
and NETTIE ?. She was born 1848 in Alabama, and died 20 Jan 1874 in Jackson County, Alabama. He married
(2) NANCY ELIZABETH DODD 31 Aug 1876 in Jackson County, Alabama Book C page 46. She was born Jul 1850
in Georgia, and died Aft. 1930.
Notes for JOHN VESTAL WHEELER:
In the 1860 census, he appears to be living in the home of Benajmin W. Jones in Jackson County, Alabama. This
would be after the death of his father and before he reached maturity. On the same census page, Amanda Wheeler
is living with another family. According to Mary Satterfield Wheeler, ". He lived with the Jones' until he enlisted
in the Army of the Confederacy in 1861"
In the 1880 census, John Vestal Wheeler is living in Jackson County, Albama with his wife Nancy and children.
His next door neighbors are Derricks (his first wife was a Derrick and this is probably one of her brothers). Year:
1880; Census Place: , Jackson, Alabama; Roll: T9_16; Family History Film: 1254016; Page: 230A; Enumeration
District: 121; Image: .
In the 1900 census, John Vestal Wheeler is living in Jackson County, Alabama, with his wife and 12 kids.
He apparently had 3 children with his first wife and 12 more with his second wife. However, various researrchers
attribute additional children to this family. I've added all of them, but I don't have confidence in the list.
According to Mary Satterfield Wheeler, "He built and operated a water powered grist mill and saw mill where he
ground corn into meal, and sawed lumber for the people living in the area. He also had a whiskey still which was
licensed by the Federal Government. The product produced was shipped in wood barrels by steamboat up the
Tennessee River to Chattanooga, where it was bottled under the label of "Four Roses". This is said to have been
the best licensed still to operate in Alabama."
Another story from Mary Satterfield Wheeler: John Vestal's charitable disposition once got him into trouble with
the law. A man came to his place, telling a sad story about his wife being sick and wanting a small amount of
whiskey for medical purposes. John Vestal reluctantly let the man have the whiskey after a promise not to tell.
Of course, this turned out to be a trick. The man reported the transaction to the Federal authorities with hope of
being able to get the Federal license himself. John Vestal was charged with selling untaxed whiskey, brought to
trial, convicted and given a six-month sentence that was served in Huntsville, Alabama in 1894. He moved his
family to Huntsville, where he could be with them. He was on a work release program and only had to be in jail
at night. While in Huntsville, the older children worked in the Dallas Cotton Mill. John Vestal moved his family
back to Jones Cove in 1899, where he resumed the operation of his mills.

19. BETHEL ALEXANDER5 WHEELER (RICHARD4, AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born 08 Nov 1849 in Gilmer,

and died Bef. 1870. He married (2) JANE ?. She was born Abt. 1848 in Alabama, and died Aft. 1870. He
married (3) MOLLIE V. ? Bef. 1900. She was born 1860 in Alabama, and died Aft. 1920.
Notes for BETHEL ALEXANDER WHEELER:
The 1850 census, taken in early September, lists his age as 8/12. That would mean he was born in January, not
March as stated elsewhere.In the 1880 census, Bethel's family lived next to Andrew Lindsary's family. The
census notes that both of his parents were born in North Carolina. He is also listed as Alexander B. sometimes.
In the 1860 census, he is living in the home of John Nunally. His brother John and his sister Amanda are also
living in the homes of people other than family. This would be after the death of their ffather and before they
reached maturity.
In the 1920 census, there are infants named Maggie and Cornelia. This is certainly a different Cornelia than we
saw earlier. However, the census sheet says she is a daughter, not a grand-daughter and she states her parents are
from Georgia and Alabama, which would be consistent with a child of Bethel and Mollie. He is 70 years old but
claims to work in the cotton mill.

In 1850, the census says he was born in North Carolina. This is more probably true than the South Carolina
recorded in 1860.
In the 1860 census, he is living at home with his parents. The census records says he was born in South Carolina.
This is not very likely, since that is not where his parents lived.
This may be the Alfred Wheeler who was member number 21 at the Talking Rock Baptist Church, baptised
August 14, 1885.

25. AUGUSTINE E.5 WHEELER (ABSOLUM4, AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born 20 Jul 1844 in Tennessee, and
died 06 Apr 1924. She married ANDREW JACKSON H. BRADLEY 05 Mar 1871 in Pickens County, Georgia by R.
G. Allen63, son of LAWRENCE BRADLEY and JANE KIRBY. He was born 1850 in Gilmer County, Georgia, and
died Unknown.
Notes for AUGUSTINE E. WHEELER:
She obtained 2 marriage licenses to marry the same man. The first was obtained 22 Jan 1868. The second time,
in 1871, she apparently really married him. n the 1880 census, they are living together as husband and wife.
http://www.pickenscountyga.com/marriages.htm
In the 1880 census, she says she was born in Georgia and both of her parents were bron in North Carolina. This
would be consistent with Absolum moving about the same time his brothers did rather than later.

29. MELVILLE LEANDER5 WHEELER (ALFORD A.4, AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born 09 May 1844 in Gilmer
County, Georgia, and died 26 Sep 1916 in Stevenson, Jackson County, Alabama. He married NANCY KATHERINE
SMITH 15 Dec 1867 in Jackson County, Alabama page 560 line 900. She was born 1846 in Alabama, and died
Unknown.
Notes for MELVILLE LEANDER WHEELER:
In the 1850 census, he is living in Gilmer County, Georgia, where the Wheelers went between North Carolina and
Aalbama. His parents are Alfred Wheeler and Mary Ann, born about 1811-1812 and 1823-1824. He is listed as
Leander M. Wheeler. Margaret E. and Elizabeth are in the household. His parents are born in North Carolina
and all three children are born in Georgia.
1860 census: his parents are Alfred Wheeler and Mary, born about 1812 and 1822. He is the oldest child in the
home, with siblings Margaret E. (13), Elizabeth (12), Mary C. (5), Sarona (5 months). His occupation is listed as
laborer. His mother cannot read and write. Both of his parents are from North Carolina. The oldest 3 children
are from Georgia and the youngest from Alabama. Their next door neighbor is Alfred Church.
1870 census: He is living with his wife and 2 children. His place of birth has changed from Georgia to
36
Tennessee. He has real estate worth $600 and other property worth $100. His wife is listed as Catherine. This
means that this may not be the right guy, since his wife should be listed as Nancy A. Smith.
So, I'm sure about the person in the 1850 and 1860 census, but I am not sure about the others. He may have been
part of the Civil War (age 16 in 1860 and never returned). This may be an entirely different person. He may
have moved to a distant territory with no census records. Whatever hapepned, he is not showing up in Jackson
County. These may not be his children.
Death certificate: September 26, 1916, Jackson County, Alabama, Volume 16, Certificate 221, Roll 1.

34. MOLLIE6 CHURCH (ALFRED5, RICHARD4 WHEELER, AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born 28 Jul 1867 in
Jackson County, Alabama, and died 30 Aug 1949 in Jackson County, Alabama. She married (1) JOHN F.
WIGINTON. He was born 28 Nov 1864, and died 08 May 1895. She married (2) JOHN R. LACKEY, son of SAMIRA
J. LACKEY. He was born Jan 1863 in Alabama64, and died Bef. 1920.
Notes for MOLLIE CHURCH:
Mollie was born 4 years after Alfred Church died, so we can safely assume she is not the child of Alfred Church.
It is likely she was born just before her mother died of flu or pneumonia, which is believed to have occurred by
1867.
After the Civil War, in the South, men were scarce. Women on their own had few rights. It is likely that Louisa
did what she had to do to support her children, which may have involved liaisons with a man or men.
In the 1870 census, she and her sister Amanda are living with Andrew Lindsay Wheeler (called Lindsay in the
census) and Mary Elizabeth Jones Wheeler (called Elizabeth) and their daughters Alice and Ella. She is 3 and
born in Alabama.
In the 1880 census, she is listed as a servant in the home of William W. Bryant. Her age is over-written, so there
may have been some doubt about that. She says she doesn't know where her parents were born.
In the 1900 census, it says she was born in March 1867.
Name: Mollie C Lackey
Death Date: 30 Aug 1949
Death County: Dekalb
Volume: 44
Certificate: 21721
Roll: 5
In the 1920 census she is listed as the head of household and widowed. The next household is her son Cornelius
Wiginton.

Notes for WALTER HUGH NICHOLSON:
When he signed his draft card, he said he was single. He said he was tall and slender with blue
eyes and blonde hair. My mother says his hair was sandy blonde.
In the 1930 census, Walter Hugh and Jannie have just married. He is a carpenter for a building
contractor. She is a check girl in a laundry. He is employed at the time of the census and he is not
a veteran. He owns his home, which is worth $4,000. He lives next door to Andrew Lindsey
Wheeler. This was unusual because he lived with his parents most of his life.
His neice and nephew remember him as wandering, living at home and then coming and going,
without steady jobs.

42. JULIA IDA6 WHEELER (ANDREW LINDSEY5, RICHARD4, AMOS3, RICHARD2, RICHARD1) was born 24 Jun 1878 in
Jackson County, Alabama, and died 03 Aug 1959 in West End Hospital, Birmingham, Jefferson, Alabama82. She
married BENJAMIN ALEXANDER CALDWELL83 1900 in Jefferson County, Alabama, son of JOSEPH CALDWELL and
MARY ISRAEL. He was born 26 Jan 1878 in Jefferson County, Alabama, and died 25 Jan 1953 in Jefferson
County, Alabama.
Notes for JULIA IDA WHEELER:
She said that when they were in Oklahoma, the wind blew so strong that it blew the plants away as fast as they
could plant crops. She said people went crazy from the wind and its damage.
49
Her grand-daughter says: She did what all the pioneer women did. She sewed, kept house, kept a garden, and
cooked. Her grand-daughter says that she had such an imagination about cooking. She knew how to take
whatever was in the house and make a meal. If it was almost grocery day and stores were low, she could still
figure out a good meal. When everyone was starving and she needed a quick meal, she would fry fatback, then
cook sauerkraut in that same pan. She'd cook a pan of cornbread while it was cooking, then put that out for lunch
with buttermilk and home-made jelly. (Her grand-daughter Julia Minerva was good at that too.) She sang
"Bringing In The Sheaves" while she mopped the kitchen floor.
Her great-granddaughter says: I remember her Folgers Coffee can. It sat next to her chair. I guess she dipped
snuff and spat into the can. As a child this fascinated me! I remember her as a kind woman who appeared in my
life every once in a while and then disappeared. I am gateful to my mother for taking the time to write about her
so we would all know something about her.

Notes for BENJAMIN ALEXANDER CALDWELL:
Jenny Payne says he was buried on his 75th birthday.
He married Julia Ida Wheeler before the Caldwells moved to Oklahoma. Ben and Julie rented a house near the
family, who were living in the "McNair Place," a big two-story house (with pecan groves) owned by an Indian
family named McNair. (Jenny Payne, as related to Weldon ).
In the 1900 census, Benjamin and Juie live alone (without kids), between the Goolsbys and the Spencers. A short
distance away there are Rufus Nicholson, his wife, Rufus Linus Nicholson, and Walter Hugh Nicholson and his
family. This is not the house where they lived when their grandchildren were growing up. This house was on
Pleasant Grove Road, about 3 miles away toward Edgewater. Eventually, after they moved from the house, Ben's
brother Jim and his wife Carrie moved there. The Paynes moved into the house across the road when they came
back from Texas and Oklahoma.
In the 1910 census, the following families live all in a row:
Andrew and Mary Angeline Wheeler
Richard J. and Jennie Wheeler
Kate Wheeler Glasgow and Bascom Glasgow
Frank C. and Retha Anthony Wheeler
Joseph A. and Bessie Wheeler
He should have been back in Alabama for the 1920 census, but I can't find a record of it. He had a child born in
Alabama in 1915, so he should have been in Alabama rather than Oklahoma in 1920.
The 1930 census has Ben and Julia with son Jim and daughter Alice in Jefferson County, Alabama. Richard
Jones Wheeler is listed just before Ben and Julia. Joseph Andrew Wheeler lives nearby on that same side.

Notes for IDA LOIS CALDWELL:
Lois went to college and worked various jobs in the Baptist church. In 1946, she was a secretary at
Calvary Baptist Church in Clearwater, Florida, after her husband Sam died. Her niece says she
mostly "did what Baptist preachers' wives did." She did not have children.
She married her husbands in this order. Each died. All were Southern Baptist ministers.
Samuel Heath
Robert Wright
Thomas Swearington
In about 1940, her family visited her in Clearwater for two weeks: Alyce and her kids, Elizabeth and
her kids and Granny and Popa and Linda Smith. They traveled in Popa's car and Elizabeth's car.
(Alyce did not drive.) There is a picture of all the kids on a dock on Lake Tarpon, which was called
Lake Butler then. They stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin, which had a kitchen. There was a beach
along the lake, sandy and nice. If there were the alligators that inhabited Lake Tarpon later, they
did not know about it. To go to the beach, they had to go to Alternate 19, then across the
causeway to the beach. The causeway was originally built by WPA workers in the 1930s and was
a construction marvel. They picked oranges in an orange grove, then went to Tarpon Springs and
went out on the sponge boat. Her niece Linda remembers the diver putting on his gear to dive for
sponges. The kids would get up in the morning and put on their bathing suits and stay in them all
day long. Every afternoon they went to the beach. One afternoon they visited Calvary Baptist
Church, where she worked and saw the dome, which is beautiful. They visited her at the Gray
Moss Inn in downtown Clearwater, where she lived. She had an apartment on the second floor
that opened onto a veranda. (That has been torn down in the late 1990s and is now a parking lot
for the Scientologists' conference center.)
Earlier in the summer, Linda went home with Alyce from a visit to Birmingham. Alyce returned to
Lanette on the train and Linda went to help her keep her children in order. Since Linda was in
Lanette, she was included in the trip to Clearwater, then returned home to Birmingham with her
grandparents.

Notes for HAROLD WAYNE CALDWELL:
In an email dated May 16, 2005, Ben Caldwell says:
The subject came up about Harold Wain Caldwell wanting to fly. I found a log book for him
amoung my dad's log books. It showed him as an AMM2c which is an Aviation Machinist Mate
second class. That is an aircraft mechanic. The log book shows him flying as a crew member.
The first entry is January 9, 1927, but at least one previous page is missing, so I don't know exactly
when he started. The last entry is for August 9, 1928. He was stationed aboard the USS
Marblehead (CL-12), a light cruiser. During the time he was aboard her, she saw service in
Nicaragua, Pearl Harbor, and Shanghai, China.
In the log book is a document from the naval air station at Pensacola, Florida, dated September 10,
1928 designating him a student pilot. I have attached a copy of that document. (This document will
be on the grannyandpopacaldwell.com website.) He must have been transferred from the USS
Marblehead to Pensacola to start flight school. He died March 10, 1930. There are no entries in
his log book for the last 19 months of his life. I can only assume that he had another log book and
was a student pilot at Pensacola during that time. That is plenty of time for him to have finished
flight school and become a full fledged pilot.
The story I heard about his death was that he was in a boat that capsized. He swam to shore, but
went back to try to save one of his buddies and they both drowned.

houses down the street lived Fred Vann, Homer's dad, with his wife Mary In the other direction a few houses

Notes for RICHARD JONES WHEELER, JR.:
Jack says he was running a still behind Granny Caldwell's house after the war. (He was drafted
into the Navy during World War iI.) He'd show up on "leave" really often -- he would go AWOL and
then he would go to the recruiting office and they would send him to his ship. They would put him
in the brig, then the Captain would get him out becasue he liked the way Jinks cut his hair. He
went to jail "every time you turned around" for running a still. He would get picked up, then he
would be out again. Jack says he was probably selling whiskey to the officers there too.

Linda Williams tells the following story. On a Sunday afternoon (she thinks about 2:00), one of his sons walked
down to our house to ask my mother to come stay awhile with Aunt Bessie. He said that his Daddy choked on a
chicken bone and died. Uncle Joe had been having some problems swallowing previously and had ill health for
years.

56
Jun 1887 in Jackson County, Alabama, and died Jun 1987 in Lizard Ridge, Jefferson County, Alabama110. She
married JAMES PRESTON HARRIS Abt. 1908, son of ROBERT HARRIS and SARENA E.. He was born 08 Aug 1875
in Virginia111,112, and died Unknown in Montevallo, Shelby County, Alabama.
Notes for SAMMIE GERTRUDE WHEELER:
Linda Williams tells the following story. Aunt Sam was standing in line in the bank in Fairfield. The woman
ahead of her had 2 little girls with her. Aunt Sam commented about how cute they were. The mother said,
"Would you like to have them?" Of course, Aunt Sam said yes. It was my understanding from Julia Caldwell that
she legally adopted them. At any rate, she raised them from 2 or 3 years old until they graduated from high
school. I am not sure where they went after that. But they were both living at Aunt Sam's when Granny Wheeler
(Mary Elizabeth Jones) died, because I remember them there on the day of her "wake." My brother Jack
remembers going to high school at Hueytown with Stella but does not remember her after that time. Stella was
the younger of the two. They were about 2-4 years of age when Aunt Sam got them, which would have been
about 1930."
In the 1900 census, it says she was born in Dec 1887.
She was a fun lady and she said whatever she was thinking. She was a good business woman. Mom thinks that
she helped take care of her parents' business affairs.
They had a farm somewhere down around the Warrior River and they raised cattle. Mom never saw James
Preston Harris. That turns out to be Montevallo, Shelby County, Alabama.

Mary Satterfield Wheeler says this:
As a young man, he moved with his parents to Huntsville, Alabama where he worked in the Dallas Cotton Mills.
After a period of time, he moved back into the cove. Volney married Ida Olivia Latta on August 1, 1909 at
Rosalie, Al. The Rev. T.R. Hulsey officiated at the ceremony. Ida was the daughter of M.J. and Dovie Latta.
They lived in the Ider area of Sand Mountain. Ida and Volney had two children, Annie Mae and John Latta.
Volney and family moved to Florida, along with his half-brother Alfred and brother Emmett. There is conflicting
information about why the move was made. They farmed while there, and also operated a grocery store owned by
Volney's brother -in-law, Dr. Clayton. Volney, Ida, and John moved back from Florida in 1935. For a while,
they lived with his brother, Jess and his wife, Lucy. They moved to Rosalie, Al. in 1937.
Volney, Ida, John and Hazel moved back to the cove to operate the sawmill , and began a period of time that
found the four of them together until the deaths of Volney and Ida.
The four of them moved several times, but in 1942, they moved to Mobile, Al. where Volney and John
worked for the Army Air Corp at Brookley Field. They stayed in Mobile for four years. They then returned to
North Alabama, living at Dutton, and finally settling on Cecil Street, in Scottsboro.
59
Volney was loved by all the neighbors there, and was called "Granddad" by children and adults alike. Most
afternoons found him surrounded by the children of the neighborhood, telling stories of the days in the cove, and
the adventures of his brothers and sisters..
Volney loved working with wood. He was a carpenter, and shared his love for woodworking with his son,
grandsons, and nephews. He created many pieces of furniture out of unusually shaped pieces of wood. He made
birds and other creatures out of pine knots found on limbs of pine trees. He was asked once how he chose which
knots were made into birds, and his reply was, " I look until I find one that looks like a bird, and then make it!"
He also carved beautiful walking canes that he shared with his friends and neighbors.
Volney loved gardening, fishing, and studying his Bible. He loved to find a passage, and have someone
"discuss" it with him. He was greatly loved and respected by family and community alike. He died at his home
in Pisgah, Al on Jan. , 1968, and is buried in the Pisgah Cemetery.

She was buried on her wedding anniversary, having outlived her husband by 36 years.
Her daughter says: She quit school in 7th grade and stayed home to help her mother. Later in life she was a
cook, caretaker and so forth. During World War II she took a home nursing course. When any of the people in
the neighborhood had a baby, she would help the doctor. When anyone was sick, they would come get her to sit
with the sick person and take care of them When her grand-daughter Linda Rae was 3, she had dysentery while
she was away visiting with Ruby. Ruby sat in the hospital with her, crocheted and fed her 7-up and jello. She
74
grew flowers, both plain and unusual. People would come by and see her flowers and she would pick a bouquet
for them. She made many, many, rag dolls, long and skinny, all sewn by hand. They could go in the washing
machine and dryer and come out and be loved some more. She made completely hand-sewn quilts, then made
potholders from the scraps. Everyone in the family used her potholders. Everyone thinks of her when they see a
pansy. She always said the kids could pick all the pansies they wanted. Pansies were fair game.
Her grand-daughter says: Granny Rube taught me to crochet, sew by hand and pick flowers properly. In my
garden now I have all sorts of flowers that remind me of her: pansies, peonies, columbines, and coral bells. My
most vivid memory of her is watching her kill a diamond back rattler with a hoe when she was about 58 years old.
My most vivid memory of her house in Lynn Haven, Florida, was some asparagus my mother picked and cooked
for me there one spring. It was the best asparagus I ever ate. I loved her quilts and I always sewed, but I thought
I could NEVER make a quilt like she could. One day, when I was in my late thirties, I saw a quilt made of old
blue jeans and tied with red yarn. It was so ugly. I knew I could do better than that, so I started making quilts and
enjoying every minute of it. I am proud to say that I have a copy of her rag doll pattern.
Her son says that she did not sell flowers until later in life. She always said, "Flowers shoudl be given away" and
gave away a fortune in them. She also made those rag dolls complete in every detail with panties,
petticoats,socks. His wife has one with small glasses made of small copper wire and once tried to get her to make
one using some of his sister's red hair. Granny Rube made one of cotton yarn that looked like her daughter's hair
instead. if you have one of hers notice the small stitches, handmade like they were machine made. EVERY baby
as far back as I can remember, got a stuffed crochet multi color ball (and I think Nell still has one of our kids ball)
Nell still treats some of those rag dolls like they were gold.

Notes for EMMETT NICHOLSON SMITH:
Florida Death Index 1877-1998 Name: Emmet M. Smith Place: Columbia Gender: M Race: W Volume: 1393
Certificate: 2497 Death Date: 1950 (He was at the Veterans Hospital in Lake City when he died.)
Their son, Jack Smith, was born in a house on the property of Andrew Lindsay Wheeler. It was a 2-story house
back behind the main house.
During the 1930 census, the family was living in Mount Clemons Michigan, near Detroit. He was working there
reupholstering and repairing Victorian furntiure and returned to Alabama just before the birth of his daughter,
Linda. On April 24, 1930, he lived in Clinton Township, Mount Clemons, at 25 Church Street, with Ruby, Guy
and Jack. There were two boarders in the house, whose names appear to be Verna Leonardson(born in Michigan)
and Charles Simmons (born in Illinois). The family is paying $30 a month for rent. Emmett says his father was
born in Georgia and Ruby says her mother was born in Missouri according to the census takers, both things that
we believe are not true. The lodgers are a waitress at a hotel and a laborer doing odd jobs. Emmett lists himself
as a a carpenter in a cabinet shop.
His daughter says: He always planted a few crops because farming was in his blood. They had 39 acres in
Alabama, but a lot of it was woods (long-term leases from Tennessee Coal and Iron company). He would have
corn, sweet potatoes and soy beans, in a time when people were not growing soy beans. He fed them to the
animals, but said that people would be eating them before long. He had a kitchen garden too. He worked in a
defense plant in Alabama, during World War II. His daughter does not know what he did because they didn't talk
about what they did at the plant. She thinks he made powder for explosives. His son thinks he was working on
setting the plant up rather than working in the plant. He learned how to cut hair in the Army, so on Sunday
afternoons their front porch was a barber shop. Everyone who was working 6 days a week in the defense plants
during the war would get their hair cut because that was their only day off. When it became popular for women to
bob their hair, he cut his wife's hair. The relationship with her father was cooler after that, and he may have never
forgiven Emmett for cutting Ruby's hair.
His son says: My dad worked in the Edgewater coal mine as a brick mason building block and brick walls for air
75
and ventilation control and motor shops in the mine for part of the war years. He worked as a saw filer,
sharpening saws while building a powder plant for DUPONT co. in Sylacaga, Al. Tthey produced powder for
dynamite and all kinds of explosives ( I think the full name was I. E. Dupont and De mours co. I may not have
it spelled right ). Both before and after the war he worked as a contractor building houses.
He says his dad was a man of sometimes strong opinions and did not care what other people thought, a trait which
arguably carried down in the famly. At church one time the discussion came up among a small group about why
some person did not come to church. Someone in the group mentioned that this person just did not have a suit to
wear and felt out of place .My dad very quickly answered "who is going to church, the person or the clothes ? If
the clothes are going you can just put them in a paper sack and send them." After more discussion about being
too poor to own a suit my dad suggested that the group start wearing KHAKI pants and any kind of clean shirt
and forget the tie. The next Sunday he showed up in khaki pants. He was the only one but he continued to do
that. He did not believe that clothes make the man. I am afraid that I have to agree. He worked at the powder
plant as a carpenter-- saw filer while building the plant. he never worked in the plant after it went into production
His son also says his dad had 2 separate 40 acre, adjoining leases with 40 acres in cultivation, the rest was in
woods and pasture. He believed in a good garden He liked to go to church and tell people "I have plenty of
garden vegetables, Come on over and help yourself " then when we got home he would tell me to go pick some
and bring it to the house so they won't be tromping around in the garden (some of them didn't know how to pick
and would destroy more than they picked). From the 6th grade on I got out of school at 1:00 and came hom,
,hooked up the mule(s) and plowed until he came home to take over the plowing and I would go in and fix the
mules feed sometimes milk the cow and then do my homework (what part of it I ever done) I think the main
reason for some of the farming was to keep me out of trouble - - - It worked. I came in one day and told him I
wanted to go to a specific ball game.He wasn't in the best mood that day He said " I've got your d- - - ball game
there is a team of mules and 40 acres and if that runs out I will lease some more" well that fall we bought a used
tractor and I learned to drive it pretty good, The 40 acres ran out, I had plowed it over and over..My dad always
tried to do what he said he would do so he leased 5 acres - - -5 miles from home I plowed that and planted it in
soybeans, I cut and raked it and he gave it away because it had NUT grass in it and he,didn't want to
contaminate our place with it. But I never got into trouble I didn't have time. Of all the farming we done , I sold
1 half wagon load of watermelons..Of the rest, we had what we used and gave away more than we used I can't
remember ever selling anything more. ---He first leased the front 40 acres that he had helped uncle Hugh
Nicholson clear the trees off of it I can remember some of the trees were oaks over 2 feet in diameter. the first
lease was before my sister Linda was born The second lease was an adjoining 40 acres that uncle Dick Wheeler
*(Granny Caldwell's brother ) had leased for years and he gave up the lease. since we had the front 40 the
company ( T. C I ) let us have it.There was some mine cracks--big cracks in the ground varying in size some4--6
ft. wide and 40--50 ft long open 4 to 8 ft deep ( WE had a mule fall into one once and we had to dig her out ) We
filled them and watched them and farmed right over them. Occasionally one would open up and we would have
to fill it again some of the cracks are there now in among the houses that have been built in my field.

When he was 17, he ren away and joined the Navy with a friend of his. He and Harry both joined, but they did
not go together. He trained at Pensacola, Florida. He was a navigator and pilot. After World War II, some
smart aleck young medic did his annual physical and decided he had asthma, so he had to go on a desk job. He
finished his Navy career in Pensacola. He retired as a Commander, without a high school diploma. According to
his son, he was up for Captain, but had little chance of making it given his lack of education. He was an Ensign at
the beginning of World War II. He was promoted during the war. At the end of the war, Congress voted to allow
some of them to keep their rank and he was allowed to. He finished his Navy career in Pensacola. He retired as
a Commander, without a high school diploma. According to his son, he was up for Captain, but had little chance
of making it given his lack of education.
In the 1930 census, he is living at the U.S. Naval Air Station in Warrington (Pensacola), Florida. The writing is
not too clear, but it looks like he is living in Barracks Building 231.

MCKENZIE Private. He was born Private.
Notes for VIRGINIA ALICE CALDWELL:
In the Pleasant Grove Cemetery, there was a stone in the Caldwell lot. Cars kept missing the curve and hitting the
stone. So, Alice bought a really big stone so that cars could not damage it. It seems to be working.
Alice always had a beautiful garden. When her children were grown up, she went to work at Auburn University.
She first took classes to learn to be a secretary. Eventually, when David was in college, she worked as an
administrative assistant to the Dean of the school of agriculture. She continued in that job until she retired. She
used to take rocks to the elementary school and talk to the children about the different rocks in her collection.
She sewed and made all of her children's clothes while they were growing up. I am sure they saw this as a mixed
blessing.
Her son Craig is a geologist. He sent her rocks from everywhere he went, to add to her rock collection.
Alyce and Russell lived in Lanette, Alabama, until their children started going to college. Then they moved to
Auburn because it was cheaper to move there than it was to have their children living at the college.
