The birth date on Absoleum Stonecypher's headstone is a bit unclear. It looks like 24 September 1769, but could be 21 September 1769.

Excerpt from the book, "In the Footsteps Of Davy Crockett" by K. Randell Jones:

On another occasion, after the Crocketts had moved to a different farm, young David witnessed his father tend to a man, Absalom Stonecipher, who had been accidentally shot. Joseph Hawkins, the brother of Rebecca Hawkins Crockett, was hunting one day when he mistook Stonecipher, who was picking grapes, for a deer. Stonecipher was carried to the nearby home of Samuel Humbert, after which David's father passed a silk handkerchief completely through the wound, which was believed to clean it. David was amazed enough to recall the incident over 40 years later in his autobiography. Stonecipher recovered and later married Humbert's daughter, Sarah.

The book Craft and Ball Families by Roma Mitchell and Robert Lindley give James Troy Craft's death date as 8 September 1985. It is not sourced. The grave marker simply says, 1985. The Social Security Death Index gives September 1985 with no day of the month.

The Bowman's are included in this genealogy because they seemed to have stayed in close contact with my grandparents. All my life I could remember hearing the name, "Rennie Bowman". That is very possibly incorrect spelling, but it's the way it's spelled on the back of our family pictures.

William Royal's family is another whose names I grew up hearing, so my grandmother must have kept in touch often. William married Eliza Bowman, Rennie's mother. I feel the families might have known each other before the marriage, but the friendship with Rennie, his wife and children could have been cultivated afterward. Certainly, it would have been exciting at that time to have friends who lived in another state, as they lived in Georgia.

Eliza Bowman had other children, I'm sure, but I haven't pursued this since Rennie and his family are the only ones we have pictures of and the only ones of which I remember Grandma speaking.

But with Jesus we know she is sleeping, then why should we not be glad.
Mr. Robert D. Smith and children wish to thank their many friends and neighbors for the kindness shown them during their recent bereavement, also for the beautiful floral offerings. A precious one from us is gone, a voice we loved is stilled, a vacant place is in their home that never can be filled.

There were other children to this marriage not listed in "Hortons in America". I believe Henry and Daniel to be two children as I have always thought them to be brothers. Others have added to that list John, Amos and Rebecca. They are all of the same generation and all lived in Hanging Rock, SC. My gut feeling is that Henry was the father of Elijah, my gggrandfather.

Thomas Hand enlisted in the 5th Infantry, Company G in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, 4 August 1862. He was a provost guard which is, by definition from the Random House Unabridged Dictionary, "A detachment of soldiers assigned to police duties under the provost marshal." (Pronounced proh'-voh)

Appears on a receipt roll for clothing November 17, 1862.

November 27, 1862 was admitted to the C.S.A. General Hospital in Charlottesville, Virginia for Rhemu. ??? (Cbio??) and was returned to duty January 11, 1863.

He was admitted again (C.S.A. General Hospital) on January 30, 1863 and returned to duty April 16, 1863. Complaint: Anasarca which is generalized massive swelling.

On May 3, 1863 he was transferred to Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond, Virginia. The disease, written on the form looks like Ascistis or Clscitis. The "citis" is very clear. He was returned to duty May 16, 1863

Admitted June 17, 1864 with another impossilble to read disease. Looks like Debilitis. "litis" is the only clear part of the word. Returned to duty June 18, 1864.

Appeared on the hospital muster roll of General Hospital in Liberty Virginia, May and June of 1863.

During the third quarter of 1863, his receipt for clothing states he was absent from the company and "articles of clothes issued in Hospital are not accounted for." In July he issued a request for a pair of pants.

Admitted and released March 10, 1865. Disease looks like Debility.

Roll of medical officers, stewards, attendants, patients at Way Hospital No. 2 at Greensboro, N.Carolina April 29, 1865, and paroled in accordance with the terms ..........
"Patient"

Muster Roll of September - October 1864 notes he was absent and had been sick since October 6, 1864.

Lonzie Royal told me that "Grandpa Hand" was a carpenter and that he was in the Civil War. He said it was a couple of years after the war before he returned home. Note that, judging by David's birth date, Thomas was home in January of 1865. However, Dicen was born in 1869, so the story could have some merit.
