(bur. at old Home Place).

Notes for MILLIE (PERMELIA) LYLES:
Victoria Pickrell's Notes:
It is probable that she was the daughter of Ephraim Lyles, Jr. (Big Eph) who settled in what is now Newberry County, on the south side of Tyger River, and slightly west of Broad River. He was brother to Arramanus Lyles who inherited all The Original Ephraim's property after his death, either by Indians, or by others unknown. Ephraim's second wife was Elizabeth Anderson, and her two children were Harrison C. and Permelia. "Millie" is a nickname for Permelia.
It is obvious, however, that she was the daughter of one of the earliest settlers of Fairfield Co.
Millie (Mildred?) Lyles was my grgrgrandmother, and though we are not sure who her father was; by the process of dating, and elimination, feel that he could have been Wiliam Lyles since she had a son named William, and her daughter Mary who married her cousin James Mitchell Dickerson, had a son named William Lyles Dickerson.
Another possibility is William Lyles of Chester Co. who was over 45 in the 1820 Census, so he was born ca. 1700-1775. Millie's father was probably born between 1759-1784.
However, on the DEATH CERTIFICATE for Marion Alexander Dickerson, Millie Lyles is shown as his mother, and born in Fairfield Co., SC. It was signed by J. Butler (James Butler) Dickerson, Shelton,SC, Rt. #1.
I also thought that perhaps Millie might have been the Millie Stewart mentioned in the will of Joice Lyles (wife of Williamson Lyles - see Family Page on Williamson), but I believe this was too early.

In the MINUTES OF COOL BRANCH BAPTIST CHURCH , is found the following: "Third Sabbath in May 1869 Bro. Picket preached the funeral service of Sister Milly (Lyles) Dickerson to a large and interesting congregation, no church business transacted." She is not listed in the cemetery records, and we can find no headstone for her, or Benjamin, or Hiram; so it is believed that Millie, Benjamin, and Hiram are buried near the old home place, in a family cemetery, of which there are many in Fairfield Co., SC. Their house was located on Road 99 abt. 2-3 miles from where it branches left off Rt. 215, north of Cool Branch Church.
My deepest gratitude to Judy Taylor who furnished me with a complete record of the Minutes of Cool Branch Baptist Church. These have been of immeasurable help. Both She, and Odell Boulware were veritable fonts of information on the Dickerson, Boulware, and allied families. Without their records and generosity, much of the information in my database would not have been possible.

Benjamin Dickerson and Millie (Mildred) had three sons in the Civil War:
Marion A. (Mel), John, and Hiram. Hiram was killed at Secnd Battle of Manassas, VA, August 30, 1862.
It is believed that Benjamin, Millie, and Hiram are all buried on the old home place listed above.
Which was next to, or across the road from the home of JFV Legg and Malinda Dickerson, dtr, of Benjamin Dickerson (depending on how the census taker listed the houses).





Children of MILLIE LYLES and BENJAMIN DICKERSON are:
48. i. MALINDA J.6 DICKERSON, b. October 17, 1829, Fairfield Co., S.C.; d. August 01, 1906, Fairfield Co., S.C. (bur, Cool Branch Baptist Church).
ii. WILLIAM DICKERSON, b. Abt. 1832.
49. iii. MARION ALEXANDER DICKERSON, b. May 22, 1835, Shelton, Fairfield Co., SC.,; d. September 14, 1925, Shelton, Fairfield Co., SC,( buried Cool Branch Bapt. Ch.).
50. iv. JOHN H. DICKERSON, b. Abt. 1838, Fairfield Co., S. C.; d. October 10, 1906, Fairfield Co., SC (bur. Cool Branch Baptist Church).
v. HIRAM DICKERSON, b. Abt. 1844, Fairfield Co., S. C.; d. August 30, 1862, Battle of Second Manassas, VA. (Civil War, KIA).

Notes for HIRAM DICKERSON:
Hiram Dickerson is listed as serving in the Civil War in Hugh McMaster's "History of Fairfield Co., SC.", along with brothers Marion A., and John.
From the records of the National Archives, Washington , DC, of Confederate States of America. :
"Hiram Dickerson enlisted in the Confederate Service, December 14, 1861, 17th South Carolina, company B, as a private at Camp Hampton by J. T. Preston. He was killed at the Second Battle of Manassas in Virginia, August 30, 1862. His mother, Milly Lyles Dickerson claimed his body February 9, 1863."
Hiram was about 17 years old when he was killed in battle. His brother, Marion, was also wounded in the same battle. More than one casualty stated for cause of Hiram's death. It is believed that he is buried at the old Home Place on Rd. 99 in Fairfield Co.

51. vi. MARY ELIZABETH DICKERSON, b. April 10, 1849, Fairfield Co., S. C.; d. April 15, 1920, Fairfield Co., SC (bur. Cool Branch Bapt. Ch.).
vii. SARAH DAVIS, b. Abt. 1852.

Notes for SARAH DAVIS:
Sarah Davis is an enigma. It is possible that she was related to Frances Davis who married Biggers Mobley, but that is only an assumption. Sarah is found living with James and Mary Dickerson later on, at the age of 18. .

Niece of Newton Foote (stated by Ralph Magoffin) p. 187 of "Chotankers", 1982, by A. Edward Foote; says that the WPA transcription of her uncle Newton Foote's will names her Elizabeth Behethlon Lyles.
However, the Footes came from a section of Virginia where Behethland was a common feminine name, and several Foote girls carried it. As pages 72-73 explain, the name comes from Capt. Robert Behethland, a comrade of Capt. John Smith in VA in 1607.

Thomas Lyles Cem).

Notes for WILLIAM STROTHER (COL.) LYLES:
From the website of Lawrence Glenn Hardin:
Kate Glenn Hardin's papers contain a letter from Etta Rosson (Mrs. J. H. Rosson, Jr) of Shelton, SC, to Mrs. Kate (Glenn) Hardin in the 1940's which copies an epitaph from the tombstone on Oaks Plantation, Fairfield Co., SC: "William Strother Lyles/ 1813-1862/ Member Legislature/ Signer of Secession Ordinance." This same leter says that the unmarked grave of Wm. S. Lyles is beside the grave of Mrs. Sarah P. Lyles, so apparently there is some later family memorial there.

48. MALINDA J.6 DICKERSON (MILLIE (PERMELIA)5 LYLES, EPHRAIM (MAJOR)4, EPHRAIM3, JOHN2, JAMES1)3 was born October 17, 1829 in Fairfield Co., S.C., and died August 01, 1906 in Fairfield Co., S.C. (bur, Cool Branch Baptist Church). She married (1) ANDREW MCCONNELL Abt. 1850 in Fairfield Co., S.C.. He was born Abt. 1800 in Ireland, and died Abt. 1854 in Fairfield Co., S.C. (bur. Salem Presbyterian Church). She married (2) JAMES FORTUNATUS VANBUREN LEGG Abt. 1855 in Fairfield Co., S.C.. He was born May 23, 1829 in South Carolina ?, and died April 03, 1898 in Fairfield Co., S.C. (bur, Cool Branch Baptist Church).

Notes for MALINDA J. DICKERSON:
Malinda J. Dickerson was well known to my mother, Maude Malinda Dickerson.
Mama remembers going to Aunt Malinda's home when she was a girl. And it is from my mother that I have received most of the information I have on her. Mama has told me about "old Jim Legg" who married Aunt Malinda (Aunt Lin to her family). Mama described Aunt Lin's house as being a very large, two storey, with a road lined with Wateroak trees leading up to it.
My mother remembers visiting Aunt Malinda when she was a very young girl. Mama said that there was a beautiful "blue room" which evidently impressed mama very much. Also the kitchen was in a separate building out back, and Aunt Malinda's table was always set to feed anyone who came by to see her.
Malinda and her second husband, J.F.V. Legg are both buried in the oldest section of Cool Branch Baptist Church Cemetery, in Fairfield Co., SC. Their headstones are side by side.
Aunt Malinda's first husband was Andrew McConnell who was from Ireland. The following is a quote from HISTORY OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY, SC, by William Ederington :
"....land lying on Beaver Creek and between McClures Creek and the river and north to the Chester Co. line. In this section lived the Nevetts, Jenkins, Sheltons, Newbles, Chapmans, and later Andrew McConnell, who bought the plantation (now owned by J.F.V. Legg) from Major William S. Lyles. McConnell was a poor boy but when he died was the possessor of thousands of acres of land and more than 100 slaves. JFV Legg married his widow and now lives in the old homestead."

We find in "Fairfield County Marriages Implied in Probate Records", the following:
Legg, Jas. F.V. m. Malinda McConnell (widow of Andrew McConnell)
Apt 105, File 523 frames 124,152 1855
Legg, James F.V, m. Malinda J. McConnell (widow), Apt 25, File 275. l865

In the 1860 CENSUS of Fairfield Co., we find:
House # 197: LEGG, J.F.V., age 30 Planter Real Estate Value: 1,600, Personal: 31,180
Malinda 30
Benjamin McConnell age 8 Personal Estate: 800
In the 1870 CENSUS we find:
In Res # 321 lived James F.V.Legg, age 40
and wife Malinda 40

As was the custom in those days, he became owner of her land upon their marriage. Later he donated the land on which the second Cool Branch Baptist Church stood, in the NW corner of Fairfield Co., SC. It is thought that the original church was located about a mile north, and to the west of the present day site, on Stevenson Rd. The second church was located about 200 ft. behind the present cemetery.

Maggie Dickerson, (dtr of Wm Frank Dickerson, "Uncle Frank") my mother's cousin, told me a story which I find to be quite amusing. It seems that Andrew McConnell's first wife died and left him with several children, and he was much older than Aunt Malinda. It is said that one day Aunt Malinda was out in the field "chopping" cotton when Mr. Andrew McConnell rode up. He was known to be very rich, and sat upon a fine horse. He started talking to Aunt Malinda (a thing which was not done in those days !) and after a time he rode off. The next day he showed up again, with a pair of very fine gloves for Aunt Malinda's father, however, Aunt Malinda's brothers sent him on his way. He persisted, needless to say, for he obtained his wife and caretaker for his children. He was at least 50, I believe, and she was about 19. But he died, left her the land; she then married JFV Legg; he died, and she lived to be a ripe old age.



Notes for ANDREW MCCONNELL:
See NOTES for Malinda Dickerson McConnell Legg.

In "Fairfield County Marriages Implied in Probate Records" page 157:
Dawkins, Elizabeth Andrew McConnell 1826/1836
This could be Andrew McConnell's first wife.
The Obituary for an Elizabeth Dawkins McConnell was published in the Greenville Mountaineer newspaper, stating that she died on May 8th, but no year was given. (I am not positive that this is the wife of Andrew McConnell who later married Malinda Dickerson, since he lived in Fairfield Co., but is certainly more than likely)

Notes for JAMES FORTUNATUS VANBUREN LEGG:
Information on birth and death dates from Cemetery Records of Cool Branch Baptist Church, Fairfield Co.,SC. There was an error in the birth date of James Legg, which I corrected.

Child of MALINDA DICKERSON and ANDREW MCCONNELL is:
i. BENJAMIN7 MCCONNELL, b. Abt. 1852, Fairfield Co., S. C.; d. Abt. 1866, Fairfield Co., SC (bur. beside father in Salem Presb. Cem) ?.

Notes for BENJAMIN MCCONNELL:
I believe that Benjamin McConnell was the only child of Malinda Dickerson McConnell. I have no further record of him. He was evidently named Benjamin after Malinda's father, Benjamin Dickerson.
I have learned from a recent letter ( 6/21/00) from Ruth Ann Bishop ( Maggie Dickerson Bishop's granddaughter) that Benjamin McConnell died from dysentery at the age of 14..

49. MARION ALEXANDER6 DICKERSON (MILLIE (PERMELIA)5 LYLES, EPHRAIM (MAJOR)4, EPHRAIM3, JOHN2, JAMES1) was born May 22, 1835 in Shelton, Fairfield Co., SC.,, and died September 14, 1925 in Shelton, Fairfield Co., SC,( buried Cool Branch Bapt. Ch.)4. He married ISABEL (ARMENIA ISABELLA) MOBLEY Abt. 1866 in Shelton, Fairfield Co., S.C., daughter of BIGGERS MOBLEY and FRANCES DAVIS. She was born January 18, 1842 in Near Mobley Mtng House, Fairfield Co., SC5, and died March 09, 1924 in Fairfield Co., SC, (buried Cool Branch Bapt. Ch.)6.

Notes for MARION ALEXANDER DICKERSON:
Mel (Marion A.) Dickerson was born near Shelton in the northwest section of Fairfield Co., S.C., and at the age of 26 he joined the CSA forces on December 14, 1961, along with brothers John and Hiram. They served in the 17th Inf., Co. B under Capt. Burley.
Marion was wounded slightly at the 2nd Battle of Manassas, and in 1865 was in the blow up fight at Petersburg, VA, and as the Confederates pulled out and headed West, he was captured at Five Forks Battle, VA, on April 01, 1865. He was transported to Point Lookout Prison. He was released June 26, 1865. On his Oath of Allegiance to the U.S. Government he is described as: light complexion, brown hair, hazel eyes, 6' l 1/2".
Both Mel (as Marion was known to his family) and wife Isabel Mobley (Armenia Isabella) are buried at Cool Branch Baptist Church in the N.W. corner of Fairfield Co., S.C., on Route 215-S. His headstone has no dates, only the CSA Star.
My mother, Maude Malinda Dickerson Brannon tells me that Cool Branch is a Dickerson church, founded by that family. The one standing today is the third; the first was located a mile or so to the north, down Stevenson road to the left. It is there that Benjamin and Millie are possibly buried. We have not found the cemetery to date. The second church stood about 200 ft. behind the present cemetery, and was demolished prior to the construction of the present Church.
The land on which the first church stood was donated by James F.V. Legg who was the second husband of Malinda Dickerson McConnell, the Widow of Andrew McConnell who purchased the land and house from Col. William S. Lyles. After his marriage to her, J.F.V. Legg owned the land. Aunt Malinda outlived him, however, and mother (Maude Malinda Dickerson) remembers going up to her big old house, as a young girl, and in it was a "blue room". This evidently impressed mama very much. During a recent visit (1999) mama told us that the house was a large two-storey, with a drive leading up to it lined with wateroak trees. The kitchen was out back, separate from the house, and Aunt Malinda's table was always set to feed any one who came by.

Notes for JAMES MITCHELL DICKERSON:
In the 1870 CENSUS OF FAIRFIELD CO, SC., We find:

DICKERSON, James M. age 27 farmer 200
Mary 21
Isabella 3 F
William 38 (In the 1860 census he is age 28, the
oldest son of Benjamin Dickerson)
Sarah Davis 18 (In the 1860 Census, age 8, living with
Benjamin Dickerson)

Though I have no record of the parents of James M. Dickerson, he was related to the family of Benjamin Dickerson, for he lives in Residence # 326, and with him lives Benjamin Dickerson's son William, and Sarah Davis. John Dickerson lives in Residence # 327, as does his father, Benjamin Dickerson, age 62.
I have Robert Dickerson listed as the father of James M. because of oral family history.

James Dickerson's family was originally from Fairfield Co., SC, but had moved to Alabama. He enlisted in the Confederate Army, and on his way back after the war was over, stopped by to see his relatives and there fell in love with his first cousin, Mary E. Dickerson. They were married and settled down in Fairfield to raise their family.

Source: Summer's book on Newberry Co. - "He practiced law at Richmond, KY for several years, after which he located in Kansas.......His granddaughter, Miss Cataherin Moore,of Palmyra, MO, in a letter written February 15, 1929, gives an account of his death as follows:
"Being a most ardent Southerner, he used his influence in behalf of the Southern People, who were being robbed and murdered by the lawless element sent into Kansas by the North. So great was his influence that the followers of John Brown and Jim Lane employed a man to kill him. He was stabbed in the back while on the street in Leavenworth, Kansas. He was just past his twenty-third year, and shown out like a bright star. At the time of his assassinaytion, in addition to his law practice, he was filling the Office of Circuit and County Clerk (they being one office at that time). The night after he was murdered, his law offic was robbed, his private papers, including his family records, business papers, etc., were stolen and destroyed."
His wife, to whom he had been maried only five months, was Miss Martha Bonnell of Missouri, and a daughter was born five months after he was murdered.

Notes for JAMES BUTLER DICKERSON:
James Butler Dickerson died while living with his daughter, Bessie Dickerson and her husband Glenn Raleigh Boulware, who were living on Rte. 9, Chester, SC. He was known as "Butler" to all who knew him, and was a fine looking old man.
I remember going down to his farm on Road 99 in Fairfield Co., where my cousin Dellie (dtr of Glenn Boulware) and my brother Forest ran around the farm. Uncle Glenn had dammed up a small creek on the place to make a swimming hole for us, and we would run past the big white mule, cause we were scared of him, and snatch a watermelon from the watermelon patch to float in the little pond. We were about ages 8 (me) and 6 (Dellie and Forest). What a grand old time we had!
My first husband, Jack Totten, really liked Papa, and when he passed on, Jack said, "It is like the passing of an age."

Notes for MAUDE MELINDA DICKERSON:


Maude Melinda Dickerson Brannon, is at this time 95 years old. She was born in 1902 near Shelton, Fairfield Co., SC. She is getting a bit frail, but her mind is as sharp as a tack. I called her this morning (August 3, 1997) and she happily told me of going out to lunch with Betty Neel Brannon, the wife of her grandson Paul Brannon . She was telling stories to all at the table about her husband, R. Victor Brannon, and his "racing" days in that section of the country. He raced the State Patrol. I can't relate all the stories here, but I can tell you that he was a local "character", and one cousin who had not seen him for years asked me if my brother was as crazy as Uncle Vic. I assured her that Forest was not. We are all, however, cut from "another cloth" so to speak.




Notes for ROBERT VICTOR (VIC) BRANNON:
Written by Victoria Melinda Brannon Totten Pickrell........
Robert Victor Brannon was the oldest of Doyle and Jessie Austin Brannon's children.
He was a very serious and intense young man, and quite a gifted artist. He enlisted in the US Navy in World War I, and served in the Submarines. My grandmother's sister, Inez Austin Bemis told me that he was responsible for developing the first underwater sonar; other members of the family, however, say that he developed a type of gyroscope for the Navy, but that he was given no credit for his work. This, according to family legend, caused him to become very bitter, and he tried in every way he could to be released from the Navy.
My brother, Forest Brannon, said that daddy also designed a manifold for race cars, but whether it was ever used, I do not know.
He was also an expert marksman, and the following is an excerpt from a letter sent to my daughter Melinda Totten Crowder from the records of Camp Perry, Ohio:
"Ms. Crowder, I am sorry that is has taken so long to gather information regarding your request. Here is what our volunteer historian was able to provide:
"We find that Pvt. Robert V. Brannon was a firing member of the South Carolina National Guard Rifle Team in the 1922 National Matches held at Camp Perry, OH. In the National Rifle Team Match (now called the National Trophy Team Match, NTT), the South Carolina Naitonal Guard Team finished in 47th place; Pvt. Brannon's score of 278X300 was high on the team, and in fact, would hav been a credit to any team entered, including the victorious team of the United States Marine Corps. The breakdown of Pvt. Brannon's score was:
Slow Fire (1 min/shot) 200 yd standing (10 shots) 49X50
600 yd prone 41X50
1000 yd prone 91X100

Rapid Fire 200 yd sitting (120shots/60 sec.) 49X50
300 yd. prone (10 shots/70 sec.) 48X50
Aggregate 278X300
"In the Naitonal Individual Rifle Match (now the National Trophy Individual Match, NTI) Pvt. Brannon shot a 331X350 to finish 47th out of 780 entries. No breakdown of this score is available.
"While these scores are not National Records, they are National Class scores and repressent a very high level of performance and are an outstanding achievement, of which you should be quite proud.
"These scores were shot with the Service Rifle of the day, the U.S. Magazine Rifle, Cal. .30, Model 1903, the legendary Model 1903 Springfield Rifle, chambered for the .30-'06 cartirdge.
"We are unable to confirm Mr. Brannon's entry in the National Matches for any other year in this general time period; that does not necessarily mean that he did not compete in those years as our records are somewhat incomplete.
"We hope this is the information you were seeking; if we can be of further assistance, please let us know.
/s/ Marilyn Graves"

He is buried in the cemetery of Cool Branch Baptist Church in the NW corner of Fairfield Co., along with Aunt Bessie Dickerson and Uncle Glen Boulware, and Aunt Ada Dickerson and Uncle Herbert Milwood.
All the graves are under the large pine tree in the corner of the cemetery. His wife, Maude Melinda Dickerson Brannon, died November 13, 2000, and is buried beside him.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Last year Mr. David Thomas got in touch with my sister Priscilla Brannon Shuler, to inform her that our
father, Robert Victor Brannon was to be honored in September of 2001, in Indianapolis, IN, as "The Father of Figure-8 Racing". He had been looking for the family for ten years. Daddy's plan for the track was designed so that there was a bridge over which the cars passed, but those being used now, have no bridge....and you can imagine the danger in riding at high speeds through an intersection of cars coming at you.
==============================================================================
The following information was furnished by David Thomas, who discovered it during his research for an article he is doing on Robert Victor Brannon:
Robert Victor Brannon served in the US Navy aboard the submarine L-4, SS43, during WWI.
Description of the Sub : L-4, SS43--Displacement: surfaced: 450T, submerged: 548 T.
Length: 167', 5" - Beam: 17', 5" - Draft: 13', 7"
Speed: Surfaced: 14 knots, Submerged: 10.5 knots.
Complement: 28 - Armament: 1 3"; 4 18" torpedo tubes
Class: L-1
L-4 (SS43) was laid down 23 Mar 1914 by Fore River Shipbuilding Co., Quincy MA; launched 3 Apr 1915; sponsored by Mrs. Stephen A. Gardner; and commissioned 4 May 1916, Lt. J.G. Lewis Hancock, Jr., in command.
Following the declaration of war on the Central Powers, the US. Navy dispatched submarines to European waters to protect Allied shiping lanes. After a Philadelphia overhaul, L-4 departed Newport RI, 4 Dec 1917, and steamed for the Azores. She departed Ponta Delgada 19 January 1918, arariving for patrol operations at Berehaven, Ireland, 27 Jan 1918. While on patrol during April, L-4 twice encountered enemy U-Boats in British waters and chased them from the paths of friendly convoys.
Based at Berehaven for the rest of the war, US submarines were effective in reducing Allied shippping losses from German U-Boat attacks. Following the Armistice,(Nov. 1918) L-4 departed Portland, England, 3 January 1919 for the United States arriving Philadelphia 1 Feb 1919.
It was on the trip home that an interesting situation arose. While being submerged a guage malfunctioned, causing the vessel to be at a deeper depth than the guage registered. The submarine was so deep that the ship's hull began to break apart, thus on the verge of imploding.
The the next two years the submarine operated along the east coast performing valuable experiments developing the tactics of undersea warfare. L-4 decommissioned at Philadelphia 14 April 1922, and was sold to Pottstown Steel Co., Douglasville, PA, 31 July 1922 for scrapping.
Transcribed by Michael Hansen <mhansen2@home.com>.
During his service, the first line genius developed a "critical benefit" which is still in service today aboard our nation's submarine fleet. R. Victor Brannon improved and made significant modification to the gyroscopic compass known today as the gyrocompass.
This is a compass which relies on the properties of a gyroscope for its action. It was invented independently (ca. 1908) by two men, Hermann Anschutz-Kaempfe in Germany andSperry here in the USA, after a principle first demonstrated by the French physicist J.B.L. Foucault in 18 2 (number missing here).
In a gyrocompass, a gyroscope is aligned on a north-south axis, and maintains this alighment as the ship or aircraft carrying it changes directions through gyroscopic inertia. The gyrocompass is unaffected by the metal components of a vehicle, and points to true, rather than magnetic north. A "master" compass can be used to operate several repeater compasses, and can provide information to an automatic pilot or helmsman. It was the development of the modifications and its component parts, critical to the master compass, thus allowing the master compass to provide its information to the operations, to the repeater compasses which Robert Victor Brannon perfected and did not receive credit for.
The gyrocompass promised to overcome the problems of accurate navigation on submarines when submerged, and the first submarine to have this aboard was the L-4 (SS43), Vic's assigned vessel.
The compass was carried on the outside of the hull where it was observed through a glass.

He applied to, and was accepted by Johns Hopkins Medical Center as a medical student, and to support himself and pay for his tuition, he worked as a barber, wanted tables in a fraternity, and also did other jobs.
He was married to Kay until her death in 1977. They had four daughters - Judy, Kathy, Annie, and Betsy.

1837 in Alabama/Georgia, and died February 15, 1916 in Allen Parish, LA.

Notes for JESSE JOHNSON LYLES I:
Granddaughter Helen Glynn Lyles, Reeves, LA, provided some of this Lyles family's data. Other
information was provided by Lloydell Iles Mullican, and Archie Lyles, plus data from public libraries and
land records, and Internet genealogy information.
------------------------
Jan. 1, 1859:
Jesse ["of Talledaga County, Alabama"] received a land patent from the U.S. General Land Office
for public land he purchased under the administration of James Buchanan: the Southeast quarter of the
Northwest quarter of Section 4, Township 19, Range 8, in Clay Co., AL, for 39.85 acres.
According to his descendants, Jesse was the first of his family to come to Louisiana, arriving about a
year before his father, David Lyles. Jesse was a cobbler and saddle maker and settled first at Bagdad
(around Westlake), Calcasieu Parish, LA, in 1859. He died at Sugartown, Beauregard Parish, LA. His
granddaughter, Glynn Lyles at age 88, lives in his old home on Barnes Creek (1998. )
-----------------------
1860:
From
<http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/la/calcasieu/census/186...;
The Calcasieu Parish Census of 1860 shows:
402-422 Jesse Lyles-26-M-W-Farm lab--300-Ga.
Mary Lyles-22-F-W-Ala.
Louisa Lyles-3-F-W-La.
Nancy Lyles-1-F-W-La.
Robert Smith-30-M-W-Farm lab.-100-Ga.
Jesse was listed in the 1860 Census as living in (Imperial) Calcasieu Parish, LA, in the house next to his
father David. Jesse was head of household, age 26, a farm laborer, with his total estate valued at
$300.00, and born in Georgia. Also in his household were: his wife, Mary, age 22, born in Alabama; his
daughter Louisa, age 3, born in Louisiana; his daughter Nancy, age 1, born in Louisiana; and Robert
Smith, age 30, a farm laborer, with estate valued at $100.00, born in Georgia.
[NOTE: Daughter Nancy [Ann], actually was born in Taledega County, Alabama, just six weeks before
Jesse moved his family to Louisiana in the Fall of 1859. They reached southwest Louisiana about mid-
January, 1860. In 1952, at the age of 92, Nancy Ann recalled family stories her father often told to his
children of the wagon train trip to Louisiana, and the hazardous crossing of the Mississippi River on a
"raft."]
----------------------
1862:
According to the book, "The Civil War Veterans of Old Imperial Calcasieu
Parish, Louisiana" by Betty
T. Rosteet and Sandra F. Miguez: Jesse served in the Confederate Army, Co. A, Daly's Battallion of the
Texas Cavalry, having enrolled in Louisiana. His residences were given as Bagdad, West Lake, LA, and
Barnes Creek, LA. He reportedly was with General Taylor's forces at the battles of Mansfield and
Pleasant Hill [both in Louisiana] during the Civil War.
According to Archie Lyles: "Jesse Johnson Lyles served as a private, in Company A, Daly's
Battalion, Texas Cavalry. He was at Pleasant Hill, Mansfield, and Logansport, during the Civil War. He
was a cobbler by trade."
---------------------
1870:
Jesse was still living in Calcasieu Parish, LA, at the time of the 1870
Census. Listed as head of household, he was age 40, a farmer, with $100.00 real estate value, and personal
estate valued at $100.00. In his household were: Mary, age 22 [this must be a typo, since his
wife was born in 1837, and would have been about 33] born in Alabama; daughter Louisa, age 14, born in
Louisiana; daughter Nancy, age 10, born in Louisiana; daughter Sarah, age 8, born in Louisiana; son
Jesse II, age 4, born in Louisiana; and son Lafayette, age 5 months [born the preceding December], born
in Louisiana.
----------------------
1885 - 1893:
According to:
<http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/search/ResultsList.ASP?index=1...;
U.S. Bureau of Land Management Records, Jesse J. "Liles" purchased the
following land: -- [Document #8740] - 31.41 acres on November 30, 1885, bought through the New
Orleans Land Office, as authorized by the Land Act of April 24, 1820.
-- [Document #9615] - 39.98 acres on June 26, 1888, bought through the New Orleans Land Office,

the New Orleans Land Office, as authorized by the Land Act of May 20, 1862.
--------------------
1896:
According to U.S. Bureau of Land Management Records: a Jesse J. "Lyles"
received the following land [it is not known if this is this Jesse, or his son, Jesse J. II, since both
were living at this time]:
-- [Document #6449] - 135.48 acres on October 17, 1896, a Homestead Entry through the New
Orleans Land Office, as authorized by the Land Act of May 20, 1862.
--------------------
Early 1900's:
Sometime before 1905, Jesse applied for a Confederate pension on the basis of
his Civil War service ---Louisiana: "LILES, JESSIE J."
---------------------
1949:
On the occasion of her 90th birthday in 1949, Nancy Ann Lyles McFatter (Jesse's
daughter) gave the following account, which was published in the Lake Charles American Press
newspaper, Lake Charles, Calcasieu Parish, LA:
"Jesse Johnson Lyles and his family left Alabama (heading west toward Louisiana with several other
families) when his daughter (Nancy Ann) was six weeks old (which would have been around the middle
of October 1859). They traveled in a wagon train drawn by oxen. It took three months to get to
southwest Louisiana, where they settled on Barnes Creek.
"Jesse was a shoemaker by trade, and during the Civil War he moved to Lake Charles, LA, where he
made shoes for the Confederate Army."

Notes for MARY M. DUNNEHOO:
In 1998, the Dunnehoo surname is still located in southwest Louisiana at: Reeves, Kinder, Lake Charles,
and Eunice; also in the Louisiana areas of: Florien, Baton Rouge, and White Castle.

According to the 1860 Calcasieu Par., LA Census, Mary was born in Alabama, but the 1880 Census of
Ward 3, Calcasieu Parish, LA shows her having been born in Georgia.

After Jesse's death, Mary filed for a Confederate pension on the basis of Jesse's service in the Civil War
--- Louisiana: "LILES, MARY M. (DUNNAHOO)."

Children of JESSE LYLES and MARY DUNNEHOO are:
i. NANCY ANN8 LYLES, b. August 29, 1859, Talledega County, AL;
d. July 18, 1953, Sugartown, Beauregard
Parish, LA; m. EDWIN CLAY "ED" MCFATTER, Bef. June 03, 1880, Louisiana, probably; b. April 11, 1855,
Mississippi; came to LA as a teenager, after the Civil War; d. March 23, 1938, Sugartown, Beauregard Parish,
LA.

Notes for NANCY ANN LYLES:
Nancy Ann was born in Alabama, and related to this researcher in 1951 that she and her family had come to
southwest Louisiana when she was only three months old, which would have been in late 1859. She
remembered her parents telling of crossing the Mississippi River on a raft, and traveling in a wagon train with
other families, including the Millers, Heards and Dunnehoos ... who intermarried with the Lyles and still have
descendants in the southwest parishes of Louisiana [Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu].

Notes for EDWIN CLAY "ED" MCFATTER:
Granddaughter Willie Rae McFatter Polson writes, "Edwin's first job in Reeves and Sugartown was farming
and rafting logs down Calcasieu River to Lake Charles. He later became a mail carrier from Sugartown to
Reeves and Dry Creek. This was done by horse and buggy which required being away from home three or four
days at a time. This also necessitated his boarding with different relatives and friends along the way."
------------------------------------
Bureau of Land Management records show that Edwin McFatter obtained the
following lands:
-- On June 25, 1890: Homestead Certificate #2617, Application #6455,
167.78 acres through the New Orleans Land Office, taking advantage of the Act of May 20, 1862 [which
was "To secure Homesteads to actual settlers on the public domain."] The land description reads: "East half
of the South West quarter, and the West half of the Southeast quarter of Section eighteen, in Township six, South
of Range seven West of Louisiana Meridian in LA, containing 167.78 acres." The certificate is signed by
President Benjamin Harrison.

From <http://www.allenparish.com/reeves_elizabeth.html>; [Source: Anna Belle
Morris, Reeves, LA. -
June 26, 1966.]
"Reeves: Quietly Progressive - It's Southern Living At Its Best!
"Reeves is located in the southwestern part of Allen Parish twelve miles west of Kinder. Mr.
Dallas H. Reeves, Sr. operated a grist mill on Clear Creek where the railroad crossed it, hence the name.
"Mr. John A. Bush was the first post office custodian. The small offices of Cole and Pearl
were discontinued and the Reeves post office came into being around 1908 or 1909.
"Reeves has a high school with an enrollment of approximately 330 including the elementary.
There are five churches, which are well attended and supported. Most of the income is from rice farming,
cattle, wool, and oil. "In addition to the Dallas Reeves family , there were John B. Kent and Benjamin
Dunnehoo with their families.
"Reeves was first incorporated July 11, 1911. Sam Owens was the first mayor, David Cole,
Dallas H. Reeves, Jr. and Sam Kent were the first Aldermen and Allen Martin was the first town
Marshal."

Notes for HIRAM ANDREW DUNNEHOO:
Hiram and Georgia Anne were first cousins. Hiram's occupation: an Allen Parish, LA, Farmer.

Hiram's granddaughter, Mary Violet Doiron Walker, recalls the custom when cemeteries were given by a family
member, with the upkeep done by groups of family members who brought their own tools. She remembers that
the ladies brought lunch, and the group usually spent most of the day cleaning the graveyard, planting flowers,
and visiting. One of her most vivid memories of those occasions was when she attended with her grandparents,
Hiram Andrew and Georgia Anne Williams Dunnehoo, and her "Papa Hiram" gave her a hoe that many filings
had reduced the blade to a child's size. With the handle shortened, and as a child, Mary V. felt at that time she
had contributed as much work as any of the adults.

Mary V. Doiron Walker also states that "Hiram Andrew Dunnehoo related that he walked beside the wagon his
family traveled in from Alabama to Louisiana. It is believed he could have been about eight years of age [which
would have been in about 1871].

Notes for HIRAM ANDREW DUNNEHOO:
Hiram and Georgia Anne were first cousins. Hiram's occupation: an Allen Parish, LA, Farmer.

Hiram's granddaughter, Mary Violet Doiron Walker, recalls the custom when cemeteries were given by a family
member, with the upkeep done by groups of family members who brought their own tools. She remembers that
the ladies brought lunch, and the group usually spent most of the day cleaning the graveyard, planting flowers,
and visiting. One of her most vivid memories of those occasions was when she attended with her grandparents,
Hiram Andrew and Georgia Anne Williams Dunnehoo, and her "Papa Hiram" gave her a hoe that many filings
had reduced the blade to a child's size. With the handle shortened, and as a child, Mary V. felt at that time she
had contributed as much work as any of the adults.

Mary V. Doiron Walker also states that "Hiram Andrew Dunnehoo related that he walked beside the wagon his
family traveled in from Alabama to Louisiana. It is believed he could have been about eight years of age [which
would have been in about 1871].

Parishes: Hiram C. was a "Pvt., Co. K, enlisted 15 Dec 1861 at New Orleans, LA. Wounded 20 Sep

_________________________
1862:
From the Allen Parish Library, Oberlin, LA, the book "Oberlin:1893-1993, The First 100 Years," Maude
Evelyn Musselwhite's chapter entitled "Born School Teachers" includes the following:
"A Lyles' family historian, A.C. 'Archie' Lyles, tells of Hiram's Civil War experiences in this way:
Hiram enlisted as a private in Company K, LA Volunteers, 19th LA Infantry Regiment, on Dec. 15, 1862.
He was in the terrible battle at Shiloh/Pittsburg Landing, on April 6 and 7, 1862. After Shiloh, he was at
the great battle of Chickamauga in northwest Georgia, where on Sept. 19, 1863, he was shot from his
horse. Felled by a volley which shattered his left elbow, he was taken prisoner by retreating Yankees,
and taken to Chattanooga, TN. After several months, Hiram, still in great pain and with an unhealed
arm, was paroled to his sister (Carolyn Dunnehoo) at her home in Talledaga, AL While convalescing
there, Hiram embarked on a self-teaching program, reading anything available, and teaching himself
more complicated forms of math. He arrived in LA in 1866 when his sister and her family moved to
Imperial Calcasieu Parish, and obtained a teaching certificate in about 1867."
Confederate Pension Records show that a Confederate pension was applied for, according to the
"Louisiana Genealogical Register, Vol. XLI, No. 4, Dec. 1994."
According to "The Institute for Civil War Research" by John F. Walter, the
Nineteenth Louisiana Infantry was organized at Camp Moore, Tangipahoa, LA, during the fall of 1861.
The regiment was mustered into Confederate service there in early October, 1861. Company K was
nicknamed the Anacoco Rangers and the men came mostly from Vernon Parish. Soon after being
mustered into service, the Nineteenth was ordered to Corinth, Mississippi, where it served on
garrison duty there for a short period of time and then joined the Army of the Mississippi Valley. This
Army was subsequently renamed the Army of Mississippi. On July 23, 1862, the regiment moved to
Mobile, Alabama, where it jointed the Department of the Gulf. In the spring of 1863, the unit joined the
Army of Tennessee. Not long afterwards it was moved to Jackson, Mississippi, where it was assigned to
the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. In the late summer of 1863, the regiment
returned to the Army of Tennessee. It served in that Army until early 1865, and ended its career
attached to the Department of Alabama, Mississippi, and East Louisiana. The Nineteenth LA Infantry
participated in more than 40 various engagements during its career, beginning March 1, 1862 with a Skirmish
at Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee, and ending with surrender at Citronelle, Alabama, on May 4, 1865.
According to an unofficial report, the 19th LA Infantry contained slightly more than 220
officers and enlisted men at the time of surrender. Members of the unit were paroled at Madison, Mississippi, on
May 30, 1865. The 19th LA Infantry saw service in Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, and Alabama.
According to the book, "The Civil War Veterans of Old Imperial Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana" by Betty
T. Rosteet and Sandra F. Miguez: Hiram was a "Private in the Confederate Army, Co. K, 19th Louisiana
Infantry, enrolled in Louisiana. He was wounded 20 Sept. 1863, Chicamauga, GA. He was on the Roll
of POWs paroled by Brevet - Brigadier Gen. M.H. Chrysler, Commander of U.S. Forces, Talladya,
Alabama, on May 31, 1865. He received a Confederate Land Grant in Calcasieu Parish on July 10,
1884, and received a pension in 1916. He attended the Confederate reunion in New Orleans, LA, on
May 8, 1903. His residence was listed as Oberlin, LA, with the occupation of Farmer/School Teacher."

which became more and more severe.

surgeon to Oberlin. They used the
dining room table for an operating table. Gay's mother held Gay's head

Notes for THOMAS "TOM" WINNEFRED MCFATTER:
Becky Humphrey Satterwhite tells this story about her great-grandfather, Tom:
"Grandpa Thomas
McFatter ran away from home at age nine or so, and joined a cattle drive as a
horse attendant. They
camped between Lake Charles and Texas near the Sabine River, possibly near Old
Salem. That night
after he went to bed, he overheard the men talking and learned the cattle were
stolen. They intended to
kill him. When they went to sleep he slipped away, and it took almost a week to
forage his way home.
He arrived a tired and hungry, much wiser young lad."

The call of the West must have been strong for Tom, since after he was older he
eventually left his
siblings in Louisiana and settled in Center, Shelby County, TX, not far across
the Sabine river border
from Sabine Parish, LA.

Becky Humphrey Satterwhite describes her great-grandfather, Tom, this way:
"Grandpa McFatter
was noted for being a very jovial man, short and stout. Once three sons-in-law
in jest were going to whip
him, but all three could not. He was Scot-Irish."
