54 Christine started traveling with Grandad at an early age, as he traveled the country side preaching and spreading the good-news. She would stand up in a chair playing her guitar and singing. Grandad and Christine became a traveling Christain team while Granny would stay at home and run the church.

Christine was 16 when she married "Bill" Huff. They sneaked out of the church while Grandad was kneeling and praying near the pulpit which was his practice before preaching. Granny wrote a note on a piece of paper and walked it up to Grandad. He closed the service and took off after them. Later at the house, Grandad, the Rev Simeon Tharp took his shotgun and fired a shot in Bill's direction. Bill took off running and tripped and fell. Noone knows to this day if Grandad's shot was aimed at Bill or over his head.

After several years with Alzehimers, Christine had a stroke on Saturday, January 19, 2002. She fell into a coma on Sunday and passed on early Friday morning. She's buried next to Bill, and just above Thurman and Virgie.

Vander Cozelle "V.C." Tharp made work his hobby.

"He had a little farm in East Texas, and he loved to go there and tend to his cattle and repair the fences," said his wife, Helen Dowdy Tharp of Rowlett. "He was a worker - that's what he did."

Mr. Tharp, 81, died Sunday at his home in Rowlett. He was retired from Tharp Tire Co., which he started more than 40 years ago and operated in Dallas, Duncanville, Mesquite, Eastland and Longview. The Mesquite store is still in business.

"He was the kindest, gentlest person. He was just a super human being," Mrs. Tharp said. "He loved God and was a churchgoing man, and he lived what he believed."

Mr. Tharp was a member of First Assembly of God in Mesquite, and his services were held there Wednesday.

70 Daniel Green Rogers Kersh was born 16 November 1838 in Rankin County, Mississippi. He was the son of John Kersh, born 24 January 1814 in Orangeburg District, South Carolina and Mary Ann Rhodes, born 25 November 1818 in Georgia. Daniel served in the Civil War in a Mississippi Regiment and was wounded several times.

On 14 May, 1861, he married Elizabeth E Lindsey Wilkinson Trigg, a widow with a small son, William Alexander Trigg. They were unhappy with the destruction of their home and lands caused by the terrible war years and decided (ca. 1870) to move to Texas and begin a new life. Daniel's uncles, Enos and Thomas Kersh also made the move and settled in Cherokee County Texas while Daniel and Elizabeth settled in Anderson County.

Daniel farmed, was a wood cutter, owned a store, and joined a Masonic Lodge. The first six children of Daniel and Elizabeth were born in Mississippi, the others in Anderson County, Texas.

On 14 November 1884, Elizabeth died and is buried at the Guiceland Cemetery near Salmon, Texas. Two of Elizabeth and Daniel's sons, Samuel and Charles, owned saloons in Palestine and raised race horses. After prohibition was passed, they moved away. Daniel married Mary Ann Johnson Holcomb, who was born 4 June 1855 in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana.

72 Daniel Webster attended school with his brothers and sisters at Guiceland and Elkhart. They traveled to school by horseback, buggy and wagon. Daniel's first wife, Nora Etta Salmon was the daughter of Major Salmon, for whom Salmon, Texas is named. KERSH Daniel Webster (I0436)
73 Date of birth and death unknown, appeared in several deeds as a witness to transactions involving his father and brothers. According to Marian Easterling, he was a brother of Enos and Silas and was married and had children. The names of his wives and children are unknown. EASTERLING John (I2294)
74 Date of birth and death unknown, born in Germany and came to America through the port of Philadelphia on August 27, 1739. Since most of the personal data on John Daniel (dates of birth, death, marriages, etc.) are unknown, his age in 1739 cannot be accurately determined. Census records are not the most accurate data to cite for establishing the age of an individual, but in John Daniel's case that is about all we have. Even these records are based on certain assumptions. A "John Easterling" of old Collection County, South Carolina, married a Mary Lewis, widow of William Lewis in 1780. Is this the same John Easterling who appears in several transactions in the Charleston, Orangeburg, and Collection districts prior to 1800, and appears in the 1790 census for Charleston District, South Carolina? Several descendants claiming descent from John Daniel seems to think so. According to Marian Easterling, Mary Lewis was John Daniel's second wife. There is no doubt that Marian is correct in this statement, for John's sons, Thomas, Silas, Henry and Enos were heads of households in the 1790 census, or had established households by 1795. A John Easterling also sold land to Enos Easterling in 1790, and the deed was witnessed by William and John Easterling. Were William and John the sons of John? These sons would have had to be born prior to 1780, the date John married Mary Lewis. Marian believes that John Daniel had at least the following children: Thomas, William, Silas, Enos, John, James, and Henry. The order of birth has not been determined, but based on what little evidence we have the following seems to be as good a guess as any. EASTERLING John Daniel (I2289)
75 Date of birth and death unknown, was married and had two children as indicated in teh 1790 US census for Dorchester County, Charleston District, South Carolina. He also was involved in several land transactions with his father and brothers. EASTERLING Henry (I2296)
76 Date of birth and death unknown, was probably a yonger son of John Daniel. He may be a son born to John Daniel and his second wife, Mary Lewis EASTERLING James (I2295)
77 Deason, Nancy, Jan 3, 1807 - Mar 18, 1893 [Dau of Stephen Caudle] By request of our dear old father we announce the death of our dear mother who departed this life near Slick, Bibb Co., Ala., March 18, 1893. She was born in Lancaster Co., S. C., Jan. 1807 and was the Dau of Stephen Caudle, Sr. While she was very young Grandfather Caudle moved to North Carolina, near Saulsbury. Not being satisfied, they moved back to their former home, where she lived until she and my father, Wiley Deason, who is yet a survivor of the grave, were married. They moved to Monroe Co., Ala., then to Butler Co., where she united with the Primitive Baptist church, at Sweetwater, about the year 1836 or 1837, and, I think, was baptized by one of the Geeters. She lived a consistent member until 1843, when they moved to Bibb Co., Ala., where she remained until her death. After she moved to Bibb county, she and father, being overpersuaded, put their letters with the Missionary Baptists, but they never were satisfied while with them. She afterward went into the organization of the Primitive Baptist church at Little Hope, where she remained a devoted member until the Lord saw fit to call her home. She was the mother of nine children--six girls and three boys. Two girls and two boys have long since been laid in the silent grave. She leaves a heart-stricken husband, now in his 86th year, five children, and many grandchildren to mourn their loss. Mother had been afflicted for many years. For some time before she died her mind was considerably shattered, insomuch that she did not know her own children. For several weeks before her death she was helpless. Her remains were laid away in the cemetery near Little Hope meeting-house March 19. Eld. Hubbard, a relative of hers, gave a beautiful talk full of comfort and consolation to her bereaved husband, children, and many friends. Dear mother lived to see all her children now living unite with the Primitive Baptist church. One of her grandsons, J. D. McElroy, is an ordained minister, and is the pastor of the church at Little Hope, where her membership was. Dear mother is gone; but her memory still lives in the hearts of those dear ones that she left behind. May God be pleased to pour out his most choice blessings on the bereaved family until they shall be reunited beyond the shores of time.

78 Della Faye was born in Muchison, Texas in the little house behind the Methodist Church that she owned until the late 70's. She graduated from Brownsboro High School in 1944. All during her school years, Faye was very popular and active in a number of extra curricular activities. She played basketball and softball and that's how she broke her nose. She was the student band director, probably because she played just about every instrument in the band except drums. She wrote her graduating class song and was voted most beautiful and a host of other titles and favorites and was valedictorian of her class.

She sang for just about every wedding, including the wedding of the Principal of Brownsboro High School when her daughter, Anita was in school there. In fact, she sang at a number of other area functions.

Following graduation, she went to SMU on a music scholarship at the age of 16. She had been double promoted in High School, plus they only had 11 years of school due to the war. While attending SMU, she was voted SMU Beauty Queen, and also did modeling for Neiman Marcus. She was offered an opportunity to join and travel with either Jimmy Dorsey's or Benny Goodman's brother's band, but elected to continue her career in Accounting and Finance, and to remain at home to raise Claudia.

During this time, she met Johnny Crawford. They married and moved to Urbandale where she and Johnny owned a Sinclair service station. They moved to the Old Seagoville Road home around 1960 when Anita was born. Then in 1973 they moved to the farm 7 miles northeast of Muchison in the community of Barton's Chapel, where she built her dream home on a hilltop.

Johnny then drove for Ben Franklin Stores until he got in sick in 1978-79. During this same time Faye owned and ran "Crawford's General Merchandise" in the heart of Murchison. She later became the Director of Finance for the City of Athens until her death due to cancer in 1989.

79 Descendants of Joseph Dunklin

Generation No. 2

2. JOSEPH D.2 DUNKLIN (JOSEPH1) was born Abt. 1758 in Four Hole Swamp, near Bonneau, Berkley County, S.C., and died 1806 in Greenville County, South Carolina. He married SARAH MARGARET SULLIVANT Abt. 1782 in Greenville County, South Carolina, daughter of CHARLES SULLIVANT and MARY CHARLTON.

The eldest son of Joseph Sr. & Jean Warthen Dunklin. His parents emigrated to America on a ship from London, England. Joseph Sr. & Jean Warthen married in Charleston, South Carolina when they arrived. They located on Four Holes Swamp in Berkley County, S.C.

Joesph Jr. served with General Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox," & General Horry for the greater part of the Revoluntionary War. ( by Ethel Hastings Scruggs Dunklin, wife of William Wathin Dunklin of Laplante & Dunklin Ptg. Co., New York, NY. DAR #145,482) After his father & mother died at the close of the war, he moved with his brothers & sisters to Greenville County, South Carolina on the Reedy River in 1785. The Dunklin family picked Greenville County because the Sullivan(t)s on their trading trips to Charleston, S.C. stayed with the Dunklin family of Four Holes Swamp. The Sullivan(t)s told them of the new purchase of rich & healthy lands in Greenville County & all the family moved up to Dunklin Township, Greenville County, S.C.

FROM "HISTORIC RAMBLIN'S THROUGH BERKELY COUNTY, SC" BY J. RUSSELL CROSS: "When the Sullivan family from the Piedmont came down to Charleston, they stayed with the Dunklins on the Old Indian Path (Gaillard Rd). The children of the two families intermarried and Joseph and Jean Dunklin sold their lands to Ezekiel Smith and moved in 1785 to settle on Reedy River in what became Dunklin Township."

After his marriage to Sarah Margaret Sullivan(t) and the births of their children, he traveled to Caldwell County, Kentucky, near the town of Fredonia to purchase land and build a new home. He returned or was returning to Greenville County, S.C. for his wife and children, but he died shortly after he returned or while he was returning. The "History of The Dunklin Family of South Carolina" says he was buried in the old homestead burying ground. Notes from the Web Site which focuses on the Sullivans & "The History of the Sullivan Family" by Wm. D. Sullivan, Sr. says he died on the Captain George Martin farm and is buried in the yard. It does not say, however, where this farm was located. (I assume SC and that this is the smae Capt. Martin that had a ranger company with Hewlett Sullivant at the end of the Rev.War.) His wife & children went on to their new land in Caldwell County, Kentucky. They were accompanied by his brother, John Dunklin, & his family and Sarah Margaret's brothers, Stephen & Claiborne Sullivan, and their families.

The following paragraph is from "Register of the Sullivan Family" by William D. Sullivan, Sr. and published in 1913. It varies somewhat from his information in "The History of the Sullivan Family" and other sources:

Joseph moved his family to Kentucky in 1804 or 1805 and settled near Fredonia, Caldwell Co. While in South Carolina completing his business, he died. Sarah stayed on in Kentucky. She later married John McElroy. (Both Scruggs Genealogy & History of the Sullivan Family state she married Micajah Sweeney. However, marriage records of Kentucky show she married John McElroy. In addition, Paula Dunklin has a copy of their pre-nuptial agreement.)

The 1800 Census of Grennville District, South Carolina lists the following;

3 boys under 10 years old - Stephen & either Joseph or Daniel, but the 3rd boy must have died or was a relative's baby. 1 boy 10-16 years old, either Daniel (born 1790) or Joseph; and 1 male 26-45 years old, which would be Joseph. Two girls 10-16, Mary and Jane; and two women 26-45, Sarah Margaret and ?, a relative? He also owned 11 slaves. Joseph and his family are also listed in the 1790 Census of Greenville District.

The 1790 Census of South Carolina, Georgetown District, All Saints Parish, 96 District, Greenville County, lists the following:

Joseph Dunklin - head of family

Free white males 16 & up, including head of family - 2
Free white males under 16 - 3
Free white females, incl. head of family - 3
All other free persons - 8

His property is listed as follows: 1787 Carile Br. Fk. Horse Cr. R.R. bounding #1048. Notes of another researcher says "To KY?"

Fact 1: 1785, Moved with bros. & sisters to Greenville Co., S.C.

Fact 12: Middle initial may be D.

Little is known about Sarah Margaret Sullivan Dunklin. She and parents and brothers moved from Virginia to the "up country" of South Carolina from Virginia via Georgia. (See Notes of parents & brothers.) There she met and fell in love with Joseph Dunklin, Jr. from Four Hole Swamp. Joseph Jr. and his siblings had moved "up country" after their parents died at the end of the Revolutionary War. The "big, rough Sullivans" had stayed with the Dunklins on their way to trade in Charleston. They told the Dunklins of the rich land and more healthy climate of the "up country." So off went the Dunklins after new lands and opportunities just like thousands of other Scotch Irish families at that time. Always restless, always seeking the "Promised Land."

Sally and Joseph Jr. settled down and had children in the Greenville District of South Carolina, along with their brothers and sisters and their families. New land and opportunities always beckoned, however. By 1800, relatives and other families in their area began to move to Christian and Caldwell County, Kentucky. Joseph Jr. went to Caldwell County to purchase land and build a home near Fredonia. He returned to South Carolina for his family but became ill and died shortly after arriving there.

Sally, however, appears to have been a true Sullivan woman and possessed the characteristics that Wm. D Sullivan, Sr. described in his history of the Sullivans. "Our Sullivan women were noted for their managing qualities, and for their strengh of character. They were generally large of stature and with strong nerves, in fact, abundantly able to take care of themselves." She packed up her family and traveled to the new home in Caldwell County soon after Joseph's death. Other relatives and families were moving there, also. Her brother-in-law, John Dunklin, and his wife and children moved at this time. Her brothers, Claiborne and Stephen and their families moved there, too. Nathaniel Sullivan, a cousin and his wife, Nancy Ann Dunklin Sullivan, Joseph Jr.'s sister, were part of the families that moved.

According to Paula Dunklin, the marriage records of Kentucky, as well as a pre-nuptual aggreement(see below), show she married John McElroy after the move to Kentucky. John was in the Greenville District of South Carolina by about 1780. He made the move to Caldwell County about 1805 or 1806, too. Whether his first wife, Betsy, died before or after that move is unknown at this time.

Previous Dunklin Family Historys (Register of the Sullivan family & Scruggs - Dunklin Genealogy) all claim that Sally married a Micajah Sweeney after her move to Kentucky. There is no evidence that she ever did so. There is solid evidence she married John McElroy and it sppears she was still known as Sally Sullivant Dunklin McElroy when she died around 1820 or 1822 in Kentucky..

I wonder if she had red hair like her father, Charles. Gov. Daniel Dunklin, her son, has red hair in the painting which hangs in the Capitol. Perhaps this legacy from Charles B. and Sally were passed down to Zoe McGready Richeson and her great-granddaughter, Becky Richeson.

vi. NANCY W. DUNKLIN, b. Abt. 1803.

Neither I nor any other Dunklin researcher has ever come across this Nancy Dunklin. The only reference is in the prenuptial agreement between Sarah Sullivant Dunklin and John McElroy. Nancy is listed as an heir of Joseph Dunklin. The other children are listed in this marriage contract in their order of birth. Since Nancy is listed last, I assume she was the youngest. She either died or we have lost track of her.

3. NANCY ANN2 DUNKLIN (JOSEPH1) was born Abt. 1760 in Berkley County, SC. She married (1) WILLIAM SHIPP 1775-1777. She married (2) NATHANIEL SULLIVANT Abt. 1788 in Greenville County, South Carolina, son of CHARLES SULLIVANT and MARY.

Did she and her husband, Nathaniel Sullivan, move to Caldwell County, Kentucky around 1806? Certainly others in their families moved there before & about 1806 and their daughter, Nancy, married Perkins P. Pool there in 1817.

According to THE HISTORY OF THE SULLIVAN FAMILY by William Dunklin Sullivan, Sr., Tumbling Shoals. Laurens County, South Carolina, published in 1913, Nancy Ann Dunklin Shipp Sullivan and her husband, Nat Sullivan, moved to Alabama. Their daughter, Nancy, and her husband, Perkins P. Pool moved to Lauderdale County, Alabama after their marriage.

Fact 1: Called Nancy

A Wm. Shipp family is listed in the 1800 Census of Greenville County, South Carolina:

Free white males under 10 yrs. - 2
Free white males 15-20 yrs. - 1
Free white females 26-45 yrs - 1

However, this family doesn't seem to match William & Nancy Ann Dunklin's family. Besides, William was dead by 1800 and Nancy Ann was married to Nathaniel Sullivant.

Fact 1: 1788, His will is on file Greenville Court House S.C.
Fact 2: Lost his life in the Revolutionary War.
Fact 3: Source: Wm. D. Sullivan, Sr.

Both Paula Dunklin and others list him as "Nathaniel Sullivan(t)" and his father as "Charles Sullivan(t)."

When he was 12 years old, he served as chain-bearer for a man who was surveying the land of Thomas and Joseph Wharton of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Nathaniel as head of a household is listed in the 1790 Census of South Carolina, Greenville County, Georgetown District, All Saints Parish, Ninety-Six District, grouped with Joseph Dunklin and wife, Sarah Margaret Sullivan; Mikajah Swinney & family, Charles Sullivan & family, Moses Sullivan & family, and Hewlett Sullivan & family.

The household is listed as follows:

Free white males 16 and over, including head of household - 2
Free white males under 16 - 2
Free white females, including head of household - 3
All other free persons - 7

The 1800 Census of Greenville County, South Carolina, also lists the Nathaniel Sullivant household as follows:

Free white males under 10 yrs - 3
Free white males 10-15 yrs - 1
Free white males 16-25 yrs - 1
Free white males 26-45 yrs - 1
Free white females under 10 yrs - 2
Free white females 10-15 yrs - 1
Free white females 26-45 yrs - 1
Slaves - 3

Nathan may have been married before, as well as Nancy Ann. (Yes, married to Ann Shipp. Was she William Shipp's sister?)

Nathaniel and his wife, Nancy Ann Dunklin, moved to Caldwell County, Kentucky in the late 1790's. Their daughter, Charlotte, married David Doom there in 1810. Their daughter, Nancy, married Perkins P. Pool there in 1817. The Pools moved on to Lauderdale County, Alabama. According to Wm. D. Sullivan, Sr., Nat and Nancy Ann moved to Alabama at some time after their marriage. However, according to a descendant of their daughter, Charlotte, Nathaniel died and is buried in Lyon County (then Caldwell Co.), Kentucky.


On motion of NATHANIEL SULLIVANT and with the approbation of the court it is ordered that he be appointed administrator of the estate of Jacob Miller, dec'd whereupon he came into court and took the necessary oath required by law and ______bond in penalty of $250 with John Smith his security and conditioned as the law directs.

In Caldwell Co, on February 24 1816, a bond was issued to appoint Nathaniel Sullivant as guardian of Orrin Miller, son of Jacob Miller, dec'd. When Nathaniel died in 1817, Orrin Miller became the ward of a Sullivan cousin, the wife of Isaac B. McElroy. The heirs of Nathaniel were required to set aside a part of the estate for Orrin Miller. Because of this, D'Ann Sullivan, Memphis, Tenn., thought that Orrin Miller's mother may have been a daughter of Nathaniel (perhaps by an earlier marriage).

Other notes of Maggie's: A Jacob Miller married Elizabeth Berry on March 17, 1803 in Livingston County. Was this the father of Orrin Miller who was born about 1810?

94 Eden Taylor has passed a life of usefulness on his plantation in Monroe County. He is best known throughout the state as the efficient secretary of the state grange during its entire existence, from 1872 to 1888. It is but just to say that the success of that excellent farmers? organization in Georgia was largely due to his untiring efforts. He is now a member of the board which has charge of the state experiment station. Eden Taylor has been married twice. He was first married near Perry, Houston County, in 1859, to Miss Georgia V Tharp, by whom he had four children: Guy, farmer, Bibb County, Georgia; Maud, deceased; Claudia, wife of Will G Bass, Bibb County, and Georgia E, a lovely girl, who died June 1, 1894. The mother of these children died in 1872, and Eden Taylor contracted a marriage in 1874, near Hayneville, Houston County, with Miss Sallie H Brown. This second union has been blessed with four children; Rosa, Odille, Brown and Eden, Jr. As were his people before him, he is a member of the Missionary Baptist church, a public-spirited citizen, and a courteous gentleman.

95 Elizabeth [2] Norvell (Hugh [1]) must have been born by 1730, because she had a daughter who was married in 1760. Her father's will and court orders in Lunenburg in 1753 and 1763 name her as the wife of William Sandifer, a neighbor of the Norvells who came to Lunenburg about the same time that the Norvells did. He was listed in 1750 and 1751 tax lists for Lunenburg County and received a land patent for four hundred acres on the upper side of Allens Creek in 1750. This couple was, perhaps, already married by the time the Norvells arrived in Lunenburg.  NORVELL Elizabeth (I0329)
