      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.

      "Prior to 1818, the western corner of what became Gwinnett County was Creek and Cherokee Indian Territory, and it was illegal for white families to settle there. However, there were several families of white squatters in the area before settlement was legalized, including Isham Medlock, whose name is lent to Medlock Bridge Road. In the early 1800s a road was built along an Indian trail from what is now Buford to what is now Atlanta. A small farming community known as Pinckneyville grew up along that road. By 1827, the community was home to the second school in Gwinnett County, The Washington Academy, founded on what is now Spalding Drive. The area was also home to a post office, saloon, blacksmith shop, carpenter shop and inn. However, the prosperity of Pinckneyville was to be short-lived. In 1870 a railroad was built through Norcross, and due to the heavy trading that could be done via the railroad, all of the area's businesses and many residents moved from Pinckneyville to Norcross."
