155 It is believed that Vincent S A Tharp served as a Private in Company D, 1st Special Battalion, (Rightors), Louisiana Infantry, in New Orleans between 4/20/1861

1st Infantry Batallaion completed its organization at New Orleans, Louisiana during the Spring of 1861 with men from Jackson, Orleans and Caddo parishes. It's six companies moved to Virginia and for a time served in the Department of the Peninsula. Later the battalion was placed under the command of General Griffith and in April 1862 totalled 315 effectives. In June it disbanded and the men transfered to other Louisiana Commands. Lieutenant Colonels Charles D Dreux, and Nicholas H Rightors, and Major James H Beard were its field officers.

It's quite possible that Vincent died in the Civil War as no subsequent records have been found to date.

He was in the Alabama Mounted Volunteers under Captain Musgrove and was discharged 20 July 1836. He received BLT #91677 and BLT # 33.858 for 120 acres and sold #91677 about 1853. Jeptha and Sally lived in Blount County for a time after their marriage as Jep was paid $4 for being a witness in court there in March of 1839. By 1843, they lived in DeKalb (now Etowah)County near Duck Springs in Big Wills Valley. He acquired 80.5 acres of land under the Military Act of 1850 on 22 April 1843 (W2NE4A18-10S7E DeKalb co Tract Bk). He was a blacksmith
(mechanic) and carpenter. The census lists them as illiterate, but Sarah signed her name to an affidavit regarding her I.W. pension. The signature was questioned because the signature was very shaky. She explained it was caused by her age of 80 years. Witnesses to the application for a widow's pension were W. D. Bright who stated he had known Sarah for 15 years, and that she was a resident of Three Rivers. S. W. Kelly stated that
he had known her for 30 years. Levi Scott Owen said he saw Jeptha after his death, and dressed his corpse.
The Federal Census of 1880, Visalia, Tulare, California, lists Jeptha Berry, farmer, age 66, born in Tennessee, father and mother born in Va, married, white. This is from the LDS site, did not list any others in his family.

167 John Allen Tharp, Jr entered the Civil War at the age of 16 in August of 1863. He was a Confederate Veteran and served as a Private, Company E, Bairds Regiment, Texas Cavalry, 4th Regiment, Arizona Brigade until his discharge in 1865.

The Tharps were farmers for many years back. Planters and slave holders in antebellum days. They were Georgians in the early days and immigrated to Louisiana in an early day. In 1859 J A Tharp, Sr., the father, came to Texas as a refugee with a goodly number of slaves and settled in Ellis county. He lived in several portions of the State, including Henderson, Kaufman, Ellis, and Van Zandt counties. He is buried in Denton County.

March 2, 1846, John was born in the Louisiana home in DeSoto Parish. He was reared on the farm, coming to Texas with his father in 1859. His education and preparation for life were received in this country. July 28, 1868, he married Miss Emily Fisher, who still survives [at the time the article was written]. Her father was also a refugee from Louisiana. They have nine children, seven of whom are living. Mr. Tharp is essentially and truly a farmer and has proven that farming can be made successful in Van Zandt County. He came to this county twenty years ago and settled on his present home, one mile southeast of the present town of Roddy.

He believes in diversification and began its practice early. He believes that a man must study farming to succeed, just like any other calling. He has his farm fenced into small parcels with tanks and fences and gates according to his ideas of convenience. His principal products have been corn and cotton, but he has grown an elegant orchard and has quantities of black berries and grows watermelons, sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, onions, etc. In his orchard are found peaches, apples, pears, plums, quinces, apricots, figs, grapes, dew berries, etc. Mr Tharp says a Van Zandt farmer can have something to sell every day of the year and with the establishment of markets and good roads this would be the paradise of all Texas, or of the south. He has proven his faith by his works and is interested in the growth and development of East Texas, and especially Van Zandt County. He says a man can raise everything he may desire to use here and then raise much for the market and have his cotton strictly as a surplus. He has a farm of 100 acres and has frequently made corn his principal crop to do him, truck for family and for the market galore and $1,000 worth of cotton as a surplus. He believes in progress and by all means the diversification of crops by the farmers. He is member of the Free Methodist church and stands on his integrity.

John A Tharp is buried in the Elm Grove Cemetery, Roddy Texas, just outside of Mabank. On the back side of his tombstone it reads, "J A T/'I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God; incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.'/Pslams 17-6". He is entombed with his wife Emily.

169 JOHN FRANKLIN BAUGH died in San Antonio on the 5th of March 2007, at age 91, surrounded by his loving family. He was born near Waco on the 29th of February 1916, son of John and Nell Elizabeth Turner Baugh. As a child John learned and believed the teachings of Jesus Christ and these were reflected through his entire life. Following graduation from Waco High School, John enrolled in Baylor University while he worked at the local A & P Grocery to help the family income during the Depression. Due to the economic hard times he had to move to Houston to continue working at A & P. There he met his life-long sweetheart, Eula Mae Tharp, in night school at the University of Houston. They married in 1936 and became parents of Barbara Nell in 1942. As the war came to an end, John decided to try to open his own food business which became Zero Foods Company. This business flourished, having a branch in San Antonio and servicing most of South Texas. John became active in industry organizations and met other food distributors from across the country in the National Frozen Food Association where he served as a director and president. John proposed an idea to create a nation-wide food service company by having a simultaneous merger of nine privately owned companies. Wall Street said this had never been done before but these nine pioneers of the food industry agreed unanimously to accept the ownership structure recommended by John, affirming their respect for his fairness and integrity. Thus Sysco Corporation was founded on the same day that it became a public company in 1970. From that time to 2005, sales grew from $115 million to over $30 billion and Sysco grew through acquisition from nine to 78 wholly-owned operating companies with 170 locations and over 47,500 employees and is the largest food services company in North America. John served as Chairman, CEO and Senior Chairman of Sysco in addition to being the Founder. In addition to the offices held in the National Frozen Food Association, he was the recipient of the Heritage Award in 1976 and was the first person elected to the NFFA Hall of Fame. He received the Herbert Hoover Award from the National Wholesale Grocers Association in 1988 and was inducted into the Texas Business Hall of Fame in 1991. He was a director of the Bank of Houston and had other business and ranching interests. Even more important to John than his business interests were his family, friends and Christian endeavors. He and Eula Mae supported their church, Baylor University, Baptist General Convention of Texas, Houston Baptist University, Memorial Hospital Foundation, Baptist Child and Family Services, Central Baptist Seminary, Baptist Joint Committee, Baptist University of the Americas, Texas Baptists Committed, University of Mary Hardin Baylor, Baylor Alumni Association and many other Christian and educational causes. They, along with Paul and Katie Piper, provided the initial funding for the George W. Truett Theological Seminary. That campus and the Center for Entrepreneurship at Baylor's Hankamer School of Business bear his name. John served as a Trustee, Regent and Regent Emeritus of Baylor University and has received several awards from Baylor including the Abner V. McCall Religious Liberty Award, the W. R. White Meritorious Service Award, the Herbert H. Reynolds Award, the Founders Medal and the George W. Truett Churchman Award. He was also named Alumnus Honaris Causa by Baylor. John was a founding trustee of Houston Baptist University, a director of the Baptist Foundation of Texas for more than 25 years and was a founding member of Lakeside Country Club. John has authored two books entitled The Battle for Baptist Integrity and The Sysco Story...Thus Far. Writer Tom Kennedy has written a book about John and Eula Mae Baugh entitled From Waco to Wall Street. John Baugh had a great love for land and open spaces. Some of his and Eula Mae's happiest times were spent at their ranch near San Marcos entertaining friends and family. The sign at the front gate reads, "To leave the land better than we found it creates opportunities for those who follow and honors our heritage." "Papo", as he is lovingly called by his family, always wanted to be with his family. His great sense of humor and contagious laugh drew others to him easily. The children loved to talk with him and listen to his words of wisdom that made them feel so special. His kindness and humility were extended through his generosity of both time and resources. His friends and family members always knew that he had time to devote to them. John was passionate about the freedoms expressed through traditional Baptist values religious freedom for our country, the right of every believer to communicate with his God, the autonomy of the local church, and the responsibilities that accompany these freedoms. John Baugh is survived by his beloved wife of 71 years, Eula Mae; his daughter, Barbara "Babs" Baugh and her husband, John Jarrett; granddaughters, Jackie Moore and her husband Kim Moore, and Julie Ortiz and her husband, Carlos Ortiz; great grandchildren, John Sterling Moore, Katherine Elizabeth Moore, Jacob Taylor Moore, John-Carlos Breck Ortiz, and Alexa Mae Ortiz. He is also survived by scores of friends whom he loved. He will be tremendously missed and always remembered. Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from half-past two o'clock until half-past five o'clock in the afternoon on Wednesday, the 7th of March 2007, in the Library of Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston. A funeral service will be conducted at one o'clock in the afternoon on Thursday, the 8th of March 2007, at Tallowood Baptist Church, 555 Tallowood Road in Houston, with Dr. Duane Brooks, Dr. Daniel Vestal, Dr. Herbert Reynolds, and Dr. Phil Lineberger officiating. The interment service will follow, via an escorted cortege, at Forest Park Westheimer Cemetery, 12800 Westheimer Road in Houston.

170 John H Paschal (born ca. 1792 in North Carolina) married Sarah in Smith County, Tennessee in 1812. He was a volunteer in Capt. Bethel Allen's 1st Regiment in the War of 1812. By 1819, he was living on his 100 acres on the south side of the Cumberland River on the Rawls Creek in Smith County. John's name has been found on the records of Smith County from 1816 through 1839. In 1817, John H was a surety on the marriage bond of Wm Altman and Susannah R Mitchell at Lebanon in Wilson County, Tennessee. But in 1839, the administrator of John Paschal's estate (not John H) stated on his report that John H was not a resident of Tennessee at that time.

On the 1840 Census, John H and wife are listed with three boys and three girls in Sumter County, Alabama. Sarah's date and place of death are not known but on 4 February 1846, John H married Mary Webb in Itawamba County, Mississippi. John H bought and sold land in Itawamba County from 1846 to 1853. In 1850 and 1855 he filed for bounty land. In 1855, he was a resident of Marion County, Alabama. And in 1871 he filed for a pension, giving Detroit, Sanford County (now Lamar County), Alabama, as his domicile and Pikeville, Marion County, Alabama as his post office.

John H. and Sarah had ten or eleven children but only three are positively identified.

172 John passed down the legacy of Pope's Hill. On your way from Watervale to Rock City you will cross a large hill known even today as Pope's Hill. This was named for John's great-grandfather, Phillip Pope and his great-uncle Adkins who came to Tennessee in 1810 and settled on land granted as payment for...
Revolutionary War. They came to Tennessee by wasy of the Cumberland River. One settled near Payne's Bend, the other near Kenny's Bend. As much of this area was wilderness, they had to clear the land for their homes and prepare to break ground for crops. In order to visit one another they would travel by canoe. One day while Phillip Pope's sons were cutting wood for the winter's heat, they discovered smoke on the other side of the hill. Being of a courious nature, they went to investigate and found it was the home of their Uncle Adkins. They cleared the trees making a path between their homes. Thus the beginning of Pope's Hill.

John Silas Pope is buried in Ridgewood Cemetery in Carthage.

175 Joseph Kersh was a railroad worker. In 1902 he entered a store in Dickinson, Texas that was run by a Jewish man, and bought some sardines, crackers and a coke, intending to eat them in the store. The store owner refused to let hme eat the "stinking sardines" in the store, so Joseph slapped him and left. As he walked away from the store, the Jewish man ran upstairs and got his gun. While his wife held the window curtains aside, the store owner shot Joseph in the back, striking him with buckshot where his suspenders crossed. Joseph's wife, Nan, was nearby and ran to her husband. He died in her arms, while a crowd gathered around them. Joseph was brought home to Salmon, Texas for burial at Guiceland Cemetery. His three daughters were placed in a Masonic children's home in Fort Worth, Texas. KERSH Joseph Morah (I0025)

Mrs. Ella Mae Kersh was born April 9, 1910, in Clayton to Garry Richard and Ella Prior Reed. She attended public school in Clayton and Carthage and then Stephen F. Austin State College, as it was known when she was a student there. Ella wed James Clayton Kersh of Gary on July 26, 1932, and together they celebrated 40 years of marriage before his death in 1972. Mrs. Kersh was a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church in Clayton, and before her death she was the oldest member of that church. She worked for a time in the Baker Koonce Cafeteria.
