From: "GAYLE CALABRESE"
Subject: [DOVER-L] Samuel and Susan Campbell Dover's Line part A

The following info is mostly for the benefit of those Dovers who are descended from Susan Campbell Dover ref: as subject. I have been communicating with a descendant of Susan's son by a first marriage, Hardaway Youngblood. There has never been any "proof" of this marriage, or that Hardaway was actually her son until now. They are as certain that he was her son, even though there isn't a marriage record for them, any more than there is proof of one for most of the unions that we recognize. There are for them, bible records, and various printed biographies to support this. The most significant things that I rec'd a copies of included a letter from Susan to her daughter Eliza, that was written during the Civil War, a photo of Susan's son, Hardaway , and a copy of a statement from JD Worthington, a greatgrandson of Hardaway Youngblood that was part of a biography of John Marion Bolton. Susan's letter was written in 1863. It makes reference to having rec'd a letter from her son Thomas [my greatgreat grandfather married to Nancy Ross] who was in the confederate army, and what he related about the conditions there. She says that "Bryant was at Dalton the other day and the report there was that Longstreet's men was cut to pieces dreadful on the 8th day of the month though I hope it is a fals report." She talks about a group of 60 yankees stealing the horses and mules. Names mentioned are "the McCamy's, Howels, James Crow, the Bryants family, and that man Cook. She closes with, " Adaline [Dover] sends her love to you all, and give our love to all of the children and except [accept] the same yourselves we remain with love and respect, your Affectionate Father and Mother and Sister till
separated by Death. Samuel and Susan Dover to John M. & Eliza E. Bolton and family, Farewell."
If any of her descendants would like to have copies, I will be glad to cpy & send it to them....just let me know.

Subject: [DOVER-L] Samuel and Susan Campbell Dover Part B

>From the biography of John Marion Bolton, grandfather of JD Worthington. [He preached at ten known churches in Ga.]

The heading is " 406th Dist. Ga. Militia. PICKNEYVILLE SETTLEMENT. Gwinnett County, Ga.

" In 1830 a stagecoach ran through Lawrenceville, Pinckneyville, and to Bennington, Alabama. Pinckneyville was a village with a post office. It was a trading post and a stagecoach stop, it also had a Inferior Courthouse located there. In 1870 this courthouse was moved to Norcross, Ga.

In 1813-1818, the first settlement established near what is now Lawrenceville, was Hog Mountain, There was a fort there called Fort Daniel in 1812. Hog Mountain gave way to was is now know as Lawrenceville, nearby."

"Samuel Dover married Susan Campbell Youngblood about 1828, for my grandmother their oldest child was born 7/17/1829, some where near Lawrenceville. According to my uncle Tom Bolton, Samuel Dover drove a stagecoach about 1820, between Augusta, Gainesville, and Dalton, Ga. when Dalton was in Murray County. Perhaps that is why Samuel Dove moved from Gwinnett County in 1850 to Murray County, where the 1860 census reveals that he had reside there for 10 years. He died and is buried there.

There can be no doubt that Samuel Dover was in Pinckneyville many times, because it to was a stagecoach stop. John Marion Bolton was appointed Captain of the 406 District, Pinckneyville, 11/25/1848, by Governor George W. Towns of Milledgeville, at age 23 1/2. This indicates he was a man of good character. This was 2 months and 7 days before he married grandma, Eliza E. Dover, 2/11/1849.
The 1850 census of Gwinnett County Ga. list John Marion Bolton as a school master, age 25, born in SC. His wife, Eliza E. Dover is listed as age 22. They had one child James Samuel Bolton, age 9 monts. Their marriage license is on file in Book 4, pg. 106, Court of the Ordinary, Lawrenceville, Ga. Marriage records for Gwinnett County begin with 1844, due to a fire about 1871, many records were destroyed, hence my failure to findthe marriage record, if there, of Samuel Dover.

My Maternal GGrandparents, Samuel and Susan Campbell Youngblood Dover, were both born in SC, according to the 1850 census of Gwinnett County, and the 1860 census of Murray Co. These censuses supply their ags from which their birth years can be determined.

Today Pinckneyville is a cross-roads settlement including Mt. Carmel Methodist Churchyard where Hardaway Youngblood lies buried, only child of Susan Campbell Youngblood Dover by her lst marriage to a Youngblood. His identity was first made know to me over 40 years ago by uncle Tom Bolton.
Hardaway Youngblood was a half brother of Eliza E. Dover Bolton and upon his mother's marriage to Samuel Dover, grew up with the Dover family for some years. So close were they that grandma Bolton named her 2nd son, William Hardaway Bolton for him. [Church and cemetery established 1826] "

A few lines follow regarding Kate Bolton's Bible, copies , and Alice Youngblood great granddaughter of Susan, being the only direct descendant living near Pinckneyville. This was compiled by J.D. Worthington in 1967.

The following notes come from a "Lineage of Susan Campbell" compiled by James D. Worthington along with notes from Alice Youngblood, both great grandchildren of Susan's.

Susan Campbell b. 1802, in SC. Based on 1850 Gwinnett Co. Ga. Census and 1860 Murray Co. Census. According to uncle Tom Bolton, Susan died in Ozark County, Evening Shade, Ark. having gone there because her oldest son, Samuel Zachary Dover lived there. She was buried there. Her son, Hardaway Youngblood was b. ca. 1819. Died 1899 buried Mt. Carmel Churchyard. He married Elizabeth Duncan in 1846. According to Alice Youngblood he was in the Civil war. He had 5 sons and 2 daughters.

1. Robert Anderson Youngblood, [married to Mary Palmer Haynie in 1873] born Feb.14,1848, Gwinnett Co. d. 12/28/1928. Age 80.

2.John Youngblood

3. Dave Youngblood

4. Frank Youngblood

5. William Youngblood

6. Catherine

7. a girl ?

Alice Youngblood is a daughter of Robert Anderson Youngblood. The genealogy of Susan's goes on to include reference to Samuel being buried in Murray Co. Ga., and list their 9 children. With Eliza Dover Bolton, b. 7/17/1829 died 5/9/1900 buried Milner, Ga. and the years of the other children's births attributed to the ages given in the census of Gwinnett Co. for 1850. " Samuel Dover resided in Gwinnett County for at least 21 years from 1828 until the 1850's when he moved to Murray County Ga."

Considering that the family of Susan Campbell is unknown, as was the family of Hardaway Youngblood, it is notable to see the names of his children as being common "Dover" names. Afterall, this probably is the family he related to, and it was a common pracitice to name children after family.

Pike County, Journal
Zebulon, GA., Friday, April 10, 1891

Dr. John McDowell, a prominent young physician of Macon died at the home of his mother in Barnesville last Sunday. He was a son of the late Dr. George McDowell, and a brother of P.H. McDowell, a telegraph operator at Griffin. From a physician who was well acquainted with the deceased, we learn that his death was due to cigarette smoking.

6 "Charles Weatherford was the second and last husband of Sehoy McPherson. They raised four children that I knew. Betsy, the oldest child, married Sam Moniac, and was the mother of Major David Moniac, who was educated at West Point and was killed by the Seminoles in the fall of 1836- he was educated at West Point in consequence of the faithful and disinterested friendship of his father to the whites. Billy was the next oldest, Jack next, and a younger daughter whose name I have forgotten. She married Capt. Shumac, a very intelligent officer of the United States army." Family F1373

8 "A missus dominicus (plural missi dominici), Latin for 'envoy[s] of the lord [ruler]' or palace inspector, also known in Dutch as Zendgraaf (German: Sendgraf), meaning "sent Graf", was an official commissioned by the Frankish king or Holy Roman Emperor to supervise the administration, mainly of justice, in parts of his dominions too remote for frequent personal visits. As such, the missus performed important intermediary functions between royal and local administrations. There are superficial points of comparison with the original Roman corrector, except that the missus was sent out on a regular basis. Four points made the missi effective as instruments of the centralized monarchy: the personal character of the missus, yearly change, isolation from local interests and the free choice of the king." Azzo, Alberto I Margrave of Milan (I19126)
 
9 "A charter dated Feb 3, 1247 records a final agreement between 'John Plesseto' [de Plessis] and 'William Mauduyt and Alice his wife', relating to 'premises Warwick ... pertientibus county Warwickshire, where Thomas [de Beaumont, 6th Earl of Warwick], brother of Margaret [de Beaumont], wife of John, whose heir she is' agreeing the succession of the latter if the wife of the former died without heirs." Medieval Lands. Thomas had died the previous June (26 June 1242) without issue. of Warwick, Alice (I12781)
 
10 "A childhood accident had left him with a deformed nose, squahed flat to his face, but he was tall, athletic and blue-eyed with a bushy beard and fair hair. To his admirers this made him look like a fiece lion. To his enemies he looked 'like a monkey'. Enrique suffered a form of acromegaly or gogantism, which left him with outsized hands and feet along with an abnormally large head and thick facial features. His massive forehead stood above strangely staring eyes and wide, strong cheeks tht flattened out as they descended into a long, unwieldy jaw." Castilla y León, Enrique IV de King of Castile and León (I23215)
 
11 "A covert marriage must have seemed liked a policy to have very few serious risks and a number of positive advantages: this was a bride who could demonstrate Edward's commitment to evenhanded kingship, but whose family was not so grand or proud as to feel they had anything to gain by wrecking his trust." Family F2561
 
12 "A day or so after, one of my scouts brought news of eighty or a hundred Indians camped on the east side of the Alabama, near what is now called Dale's Ferry. I took sixty men, intending to bury Jack Evans, and, if practicable, attack the enemy. Crossing the river in two canoes, which I had previously concealed, we spent the night in the canebrake. At daylight I manned each canoe with five picked men, and directed them to move cautiously up the river, while the rest of us followed the trail which ran along the bank. I considered that the canoes would be useful if we had to retreat or cross the river, or to carry our wounded. When we reached Bailey's, whose cabins were on the east, and his corn-crib and field on the westbank, we discovered two Indian canoes, laden with corn, paddling up stream. I ordered Jerry Austill to lay his canoes under the bluff and conceal his men from the Indians until I could get ahead of them. Unfortunately, the path left the river bank on account of swamp and cane-brakes, and so continued two and a half miles before it again approached the river. The Indians had, doubtless, perceived my canoes from the first, and I now saw them moving rapidly up, still far above us. We pushed on at a lively rate, George Foster and myself being a hundred yards in advance of the others. At an abrupt turn of the path we suddenly encountered five warriors. The file-leader leveled his rifle, but, before he could pull trigger, I shot him down. Foster shot the next, and the rest broke into the cane-brake. The leader of the party was Will Milfort, three quarters white, tall, handsome, intelligent, and prepossessing, and a strong attachment existed between us. He camped with me at the great council of Took-a-batcha, and privately informed me when Tecumseh was about to speak. By the influence of Weatherford he joined the hostiles, and was on his first war-path when he met his fate. We recognized each other in a moment; there was a mutual exclamation of surprise- a pang of regret, perhaps- but no time for parley. I dropped a tear over his body, and often bewail the destiny that doomed him to fall by the hand of his best friend. Such are the dreadful necessities of war. Some time after I sought and interred his fleshless bones; they now moulder on the banks of the river he loved so well; and often since, in my solitary bivouac, in the dead of night, have I fancied that I heard his wailing voice in the tops of the aged pines. Even now my heart bleeds for poor Will." Milfort, Will (I6024)
 
13 "A large number of the following invitations were issued to favored recipients yesterday: Mrs. M. E. Dickinson requests the pleasure of your presence at the wedding reception of her daughter Effie Pauline, and Dr. Henry Jackson Garland, Wednesday evening, December 18th, from half past eight until eleven o'clock, Meriwether Street, Griffin, Georgia." The Weekly News, December 13, 1889, reproduced at Fred R. Hartz and Emilie K. Hartz, Marriage and Death Notices From the Griffin (Georgia) Weekly News and The Griffin Weekly News and Sun, 1882-1896 (Vidalia, Georgia: The Gwendolyn Press), 164.

14 "A little way along Front street was Wall & Company's store, presided over by Mr. Fernando J. Moreno, who was also underwriter's agent. Mr. Moreno was a thorough American, though of foreign descent. Courtly, polite, with distinguished manners, he was to be seen each afternoon taking his constitutional on a pacing pony, out to the bush and South Beach. He was slightly deaf, and carried a silver ear trumpet gracefully suspended from his left arm, which strangers often took for a cornet, and a wag was once known to stop him with the question, "Old man, when are you going to give your concert?" Needless to say the question was not heard, for no man was familiar with Mr. Moreno with impunity. His chief assistant at that time was Mr. William McClintock, afterwards mayor of the city; a large, portly, powerful ex-man-of-war's-man from Philadelphia, who had had among other vicissitudes the experience of going down with the United States steamship Congress when she was sunk by the Merrimac." Moreno, Fernando Joaquin (I5054)
 
15 "A similar phrase ("juxta usitatam ecclesise Anglican* computationem" ["the use of the Church of England reckoning"]) occurs on the next slab, that of Hugh Poyntz, who died as a young man in March 1604. * * * The three here named, Edward, Hugh, and Robert, were sons of Sir Nicholas Poyntz of Iron Acton, by his second wife, the Lady Margaret Stanley, daughter of Edward, 3rd Earl of Derby." Poyntz of Tockington Park, Hugh (I11200)

17 "Abducted from her tent, browbeaten by her mother Maria Comnena into accepting a dubious annulment, Isabella finally acquiesced and was wed to Conrad. Decades later a papal commission would condemn their marriage as both bigamous and incestuous (because Isabella's sister had once been married to Conrad's brother) but for now the need for strong military leadership overruled the niceties of law."  Family F6024
 
18 "According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Enguerrand, Marguerite, Marie and Beatrix were born from their father's first marriage and Hugues and Guy from his third (in addition, it lists Flandrine whose parentage is uncertain as shown above). None of the sources...provide sufficient information to determine the marriage from which any of these children were born." Family F5925
 
19 "According to Jaime de Salazar y Acha, followed by other authors, among them, Gonzalo Martínez Diez, they married in 1100, and with this ceremony their son was legitimized and declared heir of the Kingdoms of León and Castile. Salazar y Acha, Jaime de (1993). "Contribución al reinado de Alfonso VI de Castilla: algunas aclaraciones sobre su política matrimonial". Anales de la Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía, (Madrid: Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía, 1993)(ISSN 1133-1240), II: 323-5; Martínez Díez, Gonzalo, Alfonso VI: Señor del Cid, conquistador de Toledo, (Madrid: Temas de Hoy, S.A., 2003)(ISBN 84-8460-251-6), p. 121; Reilly, Bernard F., The Contest of Christian and Muslim Spain: 1031-1157, (Cambridge, Mass.: Blackwell, 1992)(ISBN 9780631199649), p. 96.

For Salazar y Acha, Zaida and the fourth wife of Alfonso VI, Isabel, are the same person, 'despite of the impotent efforts of later historians to try to prove that she was not the Moor Zaida' and, accordingly, she would also be the mother of Elvira and Sancha Alfónsez.[Salazar y Acha, pp. 323?324]

Another reason the author mentions to support this hypothesis was that shortly after the marriage of the king with Isabel, his son Sancho begins to confirm royal charters and, if Isabel and Zaida were not the same person, the new queen would not have allowed the new protagonism of Sancho in detriment of her possible future sons. Salazar y Acha, Jaime de (2007). "De nuevo sobre la mora Zaida", Hidalguía: La revista de genealogía, nobleza y armas, (Madrid: Asociación de hidalgos de fuero de España, 2007)(ISBN 9788495215291. ISSN 0018-1285), March-April, p. 221.

He also cites a charter from the cathedral of Astorga dated 14 April 1107 where Alfonso VI grants some fueros and acts cum uxore mea Elisabet et filio nostro Sancio (with my wife Isabel and our son Sancho). Salazar y Acha (2007), p. 228 This is the only document where Sancho is referred to as 'our son', since in others he only appears as the king's son even though Queen Isabel also confirms the charters.

Reilly accepts that there were two Isabels: the Moor Zaida (baptized Isabel) and the other Isabel, but argues that to reinforce the position of Sancho Alfónsez, the king annulled his marriage to Isabel in March 1106 and married Zaida. [Reilly (1992), p. 96; Reilly, Bernard F., The Kingdom of León-Castilla under King Alfonso VI, 1065?1109 (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1989)(ISBN 9788487103032). p. 364-5).

The hypothesis that Alfonso VI had married Zaida was rejected by Menéndez Pidal and Lévi-Provençal. [Gambra, Andrés, Alfonso VI: Cancillería, curia e imperio, Vol. I. Estudio (León : Centro de Estudios e Investigación "San Isidoro" : Caja de España de Inversiones : Caja de Ahorros y Monte de Piedad, 1997)(ISBN 8487667287), p. 475.]"

20 "Afterwards, in May, Roger [de Mortimer] also probably attended the marriage of his eldest daughter Margaret with Thomas, the son and heir of Lord Berkeley, which secured an earlier alliance with an important lord of the Welsh Marches. Interestingly Berkeley and his adherent John Maltravers and Thomas Gurney had fallen out with the Earl of Pembroke [Aymer de Valence] at this time, and Berkeley's move towards Roger was a long-term political shift, not a mere interweaving of alliances but a vote of confidence in him as a leader." Family F3100
 
21 "Alfonso VI's penultimate marriage was to Isabel and 'the cause of controversy during centuries has been whether this Isabel was the same person as Zaida or a different individual'. [Salazar y Acha, Jaime de, "Contribución al reinado de Alfonso VI de Castilla: algunas aclaraciones sobre su política matrimonial". Anales de la Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía (in Spanish) (Madrid: Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía. II: 301?336, 1993), p. 227. ISSN 1133-1240]

Both appear together for the first time on 14 May 1100 although the diploma is considered suspicious, and the second time in that same year at an unspecified date. [Gambra, Andrés, Alfonso VI. Cancillería, curia e imperio (in Spanish). Vol. I. Estudio. (León: Centro de Estudios e Investigación; San Isidoro: Caja España y el Archivo Histórico Diocesano de León, 1997) p. 473. ISBN 8487667287.]

Isabel's last mention in royal diplomas was on 8 and 14 May 1107 and she probably died in the middle of that year.[Gambra, p. 474.] She is, according to Salazar y Acha, Zaida, who after her baptism was called Isabel. If not identical to Zaida, her origin is uncertain. Bishop Pelagius of Oviedo does not refer to her origin. Lucas de Tuy in the 13th century, based on the epitaph of Isabel, makes her daughter of King Louis of France, who at that time would have to be Louis VI although this seems to be chronologically impossible. Reilly considers that she was probably of Burgundian origin. [Reilly, Bernard F., The Contest of Christian and Muslim Spain: 1031-1157. (Cambridge, Mass.: Blackwell, 1992) pp. 322-3] although this does not appear in the documentation."

22 "Alfonso's eccentric will was contested and a conventional political solution found to the succession crisis it provoked. (Put briefly, if not simply: Alfonso's brother, a Benedictine monk, was taken out of holy orders and married to the sister of the Duke of Aquitaine; the resulting daughter was married as an infant to the Count of Barcelona, Ramon Berenguer IV; Alfonso's brother, Ramiro, retired back to the cloister and Ramon Berenguer took control of Aragón, merging the kingdom permanently with his own territories.)" Family F3457
 
23 "Although Audley was an aging commander and his tactics had been seriously naive, he did not lack personal valor. He fought in the thick of the battle. But in the melee he was sought out by one Sir Roger Kynaston of Hordley, a retainer of the duke of York, who was among Salisbury's knights. In the open field, where the ground sloped gently downward, Audley eventually lost his valiant stand. He was hacked down and killed, and his assistant commander John Sutton, Lord Dudley, was taken prisoner. The loyalists had lost their leader and soon gave up the fight. The battle lasted a total of around four hours, and by the end of it perhaps two thousand men lay dead in the field, their blood seeping into the warm autumn soil." Touchet, James 5th Baron Audley, 2nd Baron Touchet (I12382)
 
24 "Anthony Poyntz, third son of Sir Nicholas Poyntz, was admitted to the Inner Temple November 1567. He would seem to have turned out a disreputable character. In 1581 he is described as of Frampton, co. Gloucester, Gent., and received a pardon for divers felonies. He was convicted with others for the crime of having on 1st Nov. 1574 ill-treated and placed in much fear, so that his life was despaired of, on the highway at Frampton Leas, co. Glouc, one John Gurden, and having stolen from him feloniously £100 then on his person of money belonging to a certain John Parsons; also of a similar felony of having stolen from Conan Parsons a like sum of £100 (Pat. Tested at Westminster, 3rd May 1582.)" Poyntz of Frampton, Gloucester, Anthony (I3980)
 
25 "Approaching Sifilke on 10 June 1190, the emperor impatiently decided to ford the River Saleph ahead of his troops. His horse lost its footing mid-stream, throwing Frederick into the river - on a scorching-hot day the water proved shockingly cold, and unable to swim, the German emperor drowned." Staufen, Friedrich I von Holy Roman Emperor (I12829)
 
26 "As a Syrian prince, Reynald had a reputation for untamed violence, garnered from his attack on Greek-held Cyprus and his infamous attempts, around 1154, to extort money from the Latin patriarch of Antioch, Aimery of Limoges. The unfortunate prelate was beaten, dragged to the citadel and forced to sit through an entire day beneath the blazing sun, with his bare skin smeared in honey to attract swarms of of worrisome insects. In the late 1170s, however, Reynald became one of Baldwin's [IV] most trusted allies, furnishing him with able support in the fields of war, diplomacy and politics." Châtillon, Renaud de Prince of Antioch (I19194)
 
27 "At the residence of the bride at Hampton on yesterday afternoon at 6 o'clock Mr. John F. Dickerson, of this city, was united in marriage to Mrs. Mary Malone of the former place. The happy couple returned to this city on the accomodation and are domiciled at the residence of A. J. Allen."

28 "Baker County was established on December 30, 1868, named for Alfred Baker, with its county seat at Grantville. Residents of the county petitioned the Alabama legislature for the renaming of their county; it was not something forced upon them. On December 17, 1874, the petitioners accepted the suggestion of Chilton County, even though the Chief Justice had not lived within its boundaries. In 1870 the county seat was moved after the court house burned to what is now Clanton." Mims, James A (I20706)

33 "But after a feast at King's Lynn, John contracted dysentery and realized he was seriously ill. * * * On 12 October he took a short cut across the Wellstream, part of the Wash, where 'he lost all his carts, wagons, and pack horses, with his money, plate and everything of value, because the land opened in the middle of the waters and whirlpools sucked them down, men and horses.' He was lucky to escape with his life. He spent the night after at Swinehead Abbey, stuffing himself with peaches and new cider that made his dysentery worse. He struggled on to Newark in a litter of willow branches or clinging to a slow paced nag. * * * The king died at midnight on 18 October, during a whirlwind." John I King of England (I10786)

from all who heard of it."

38 "Constance, widow of the King of France, was a woman of depraved heart and infamous character; but such was her ascendancy over her husband, that she committed crimes of the blackest dye with impunity." She conspired to have her younger son displace the elder on the throne of their father. Henry fled to Fecamp, enlisting the aid of Robert, Duke of Normany. Robert secured Henry's crown by falling on France with great slaughter.  d'Arles, Constance (I11162)

40 "Drewry, James A., the present ordinary of Spalding county, is engaged in the practice of law in Griffin and is also a clergyman of the Baptist church. He was born in that county, Feb. 13, 1860, a son of Fenton H. And Margaret D. (Grigg) Drewry, the former born at Drewry's Bluff, Va., Dec. 26, 1820 and the latter near Jarratt, Sussex county, that state, Dec. 29, 1826. Fenton H. Drewry was a gallant soldier of the Confederacy during the Civil war, having been a member of a Georgia regiment of volunteers, and after the war he followed the vocation of farming. He departed this life on Jan. 4, 1906. James A. Drewry attended school in Griffin, Ga., Opelika, Ala., and Macon, Ga., and for a time was a student in the University of Georgia. After completing his educational discipline he was engaged in farming, in Spalding county, for thirteen years, and for three years thereafter was a merchant in Drewryville, that county. He then located at Griffin, where he has since been engaged in the practice of law, having been admitted to the bar in 1886. He is a stalwart supporter of the principles and policies of the Democratic party; has been incumbent of the office of ordinary of the county since 1896, and served for twelve years as postmaster of Drewryville. In 1896 he was ordained a minister of the Baptist church and has charges in Spalding, Pike and Monroe counties. Since his ordination he has performed over 1600 marriage ceremonies and officiated at more than 800 funerals. He is affiliated with the Masonic fraternity and the Improved Order of Red Man. On Nov. 8, 1883, was solemnized the marriage of Dr. Drewry to Miss Blanche Strozier, of Greenville, Ga.

Blanche Strozier Drewry was born in Meriwether county, Ga., Aug. 11, 1866, and died in Griffin, Ga., April 25, 1906. She was the daughter of Ruben C.

41 "Dryden's father died in June 1654, and left a small estate at Blakesley to his son. Malone etimates this at 60l. a year, of which 20l. went to his mother until her death in 1676 (Malone, pp.440-l)." Dryden of Tichmarsh, Erasmus (I6832)

43 "Earl Reginald's eldest daughter, Sarah, had been given in marriage to Aimar of Limoges while he was a minor in Henry II's custody. For the viscount it was an illustrious connection; in Limoges men saw Earl Reginald as a great and influential figure, a man who had helped Henry II to the English throne. And when it became clear that the earl would have no sons, it became a marriage that aroused high expectations- expectations which were disappointed when the king took Cornwall for himself. Up to this point Aimar had remained loyal to the Old King. He had helped to entertain Henry and a vast gathering of kings and nobles for seven day at Limoges in February 1173 and had held aloof from the revolts of 1168 and 1173-4. In 1176 he suddenly changed his line. He went over to opposition and on and off pursued this new policy until his death in 1199. In 1175-6 Henry's obsessive concern for John, revealed again and again in the last sixteen years of his reign, drove Aimar of Limoges to rebellion. When he became king, Richard - too generous to John perhaps - failed to find a means of reconciling Aimar, and in the end it was while laying siege to one of the vixcount's castles that he received his fatal wound." Family F6221
 
44 "Erasmus and Mary Dryden were married 21 Oct. 1630 at Pilton, near Aldwinkle (Notes and Queries, 2nd ser. xii. 207). The Drydens (or Dridens), originally settled in Cumberland, had moved into Northamptonshire about the middle of the sixteenth century. Erasmus Dryden after his marriage lived at Tichmarsh, where the Pickerings had a seat." Family F4156
 
45 "Family tradition says that the Joel P. Dickinson cemetery was on the right side of Springfield Church Rd up toward the Greene County -- Hancock County line. The cemetery was at one time under a large oak and at the back of a field. This possible grave is under a very large oak, but there is no additional proof that this is, in fact, the Dickinson Cemetery. Further research is needed to confirm or refute that this is a cemetery, and, if it is, whether it is the Dickinson cemetery."

47 "For Manuel, the Second Crusade was a worrisome threat. As the Frankish armies approached the empire the emperor's concerns deepened to such an extent that he decided to secure his eastern frontier by agreeing a temporary truce with Ma'sud, the Seljuq sultan in Anatolia. To the Greeks this was a logical step that allowed Manuel to focus upon the thousands of Latin troops nearing his western borders. But, when they learned of the deal, many crusaders saw it as an act of treachery." Komnenos, Manuel I Byzantine Emperor (I19291)
 
48 "Fortunately Richard was in a position to compensate Guy in magnificent style. He had earlier sold Cyprus to the Templars, but they were happy to renegotiate. According to the later Old French Continuation the Templars had so far paid 40 per cent of the purchase price of 100,000 bezants and their attempt to raise the rest of the money by imposing dues of the Greek Cypriot population had provoked a rebellion. It looked as through Cyprus was going to be more trouble than it was worth. If Richard were already thinking about transferring Cyprus to Guy, this was the moment to act. (The implication of the plan for a marriage between al-Adil and Joan is that Richard must have been thinking about appropriate potential compensation for Guy for several months.) Guy reimbursed the Templars the 40,000 bezants and in return received Cyprus; perhaps he acknowledged that he owed Richard the balance of 60,000 marks. If so, both probably assumed that it was unlikely ever to be paid. In that case, from Richard's point of view, he had in effect given Cyprus to Guy. The Lusignans were to ruled Cyprus for the next 300 years, until 1489." Lusignan, Guy I de King of Jerusalem (I14843)
 
49 "Fulk V, Count of Anjou from 1109, was by his first wife, Aremburga, heiress of Maine, the father of Count Geoffrey the Fair. Fulk 'led an honorable life, ruling his territory wisely.' He was 'an upright and virtuous man of orthodox faith [who] achieved a glorious and excellent reputation that was second to none.' According to William of Tyre, Fulk was 'a ruddy man, faithful and gentle, affable and kind, a powerful prince, and very successful ruling his people; an experienced warrior full of patience and wisdom in military affairs.'"

50 "Future events would demonstrate that [Nur al-Din] was wholly content to leave Antioch in the faltering grip of the Franks because, neutralized as a threat in the theatre of Levantine conflict, the Latin principality served as a useful buffer state between Aleppo and Greek Byzantium. In fact in the early years of his rule, Nur al-Din's overriding concern was the conquest of Damascus." Poitiers, Raymond de Prince of Antioch (I19193)
