      19.  Robert4 SPELLINGS (Britton3, Frederick2, Timothy1) was born Abt. 1827, and died Abt. January 1862. 

      He married 1st: Lucy BROWNING August 18, 1847 in Gibson, TN, daughter of Robert BROWNING and Mary GOODWIN. 

      She was born ca 1823-1825 in SC.  She must have died between 1850 census and 1853.  In the 1850 census

      Robert is with Lucy and their child Lucinda living next door to Lucy's mother, Mary Browning. 

     

      Robert married 2nd:  Lucinda D. Oliver.  She was born February 12, 1825 in AL/KY/TN/MO, and died

        May 01, 1912 in Peaster, Parker, TX. Her father was William Oliver with whom she was living in the

      1850 census along with her daughter, Charity Utley age 4 in Madison County, TN. Lucinda's name at that

      time was Lucinda Utley.  I found a marriage "Utley, Jonathan - Oliver, Lucinda D. - May 23, 1846" in

      Madison County, TN.  By 1850 she had one child and was probably a widow.

 

My gggrandmother was Lucinda (married name Spellings).  I didn't know about any other children other than my

ggrandmother, Mattie M. Spellings Stevens, except Charity Ann Utley Chatten, who was a half-sister. 

In the 1860 census Robert and Lucinda (the 2nd wife) and his daughter, Lucinda, and her daughter, Charity Ann Utley,

and a son, John C., in Obion Co., TN.  I believe that Lucinda and John Calvin Spellings were the children of Lucy

Browning. 

Robert died early in the Civil War and in the 1870 census Lucinda is back in Madison Co., TN next door to a family

named Climer and 2 doors aways from James Oliver.  In 1880 she is still there.  Soon after, her daughter married

Amos Stevens, a son of Christopher and Katie Stevens of Madison Co. and the whole family of Stevens practically

moved from TN to Parker Co., TX. 

 

Not sure about the birth and death dates of Lucy Browning, but Lucinda D. Oliver Utley Spellings dates are as

follows: born February 12, 1825 in AL/KY/TN/MO,

         died May 01, 1912 in Peaster, Parker, TX. 

Her death certificate gives her father's name as "Oliver Spellings".  For this reason I have always had a problem

with accepting her as "Lucy Browning".  The information was given by her grandson and he obviously was a little

confused about the information.

pneumonia had pretty nearly yielded

to medical treatment when he was

taken with something like eresipelas

he was in his senses to the last and

died seemingly reconciled & quietly

his effects Capt Bradford says He will

have boxed up & held subject to your

orders it is not possible to get

a man detailed to go with

the corpse

Tennessee, The Volunteer State, 1769-1923, Vol. 2

John Franklin Spellings is one of the prominent farmers of Gibson county. He is a member of the Spellings family that

has long been identified with the upbuilding of this section of the state. His paternal grandfather, Britton Spellings,

located here in 1832 and bought a two hundred acre farm for one dollar an acre. This farm was located within a mile of

where Milan now is and today has a value of one hundred and seventy-five dollars per acre. It has always been owned by

the Spellings family and there John Franklin's birth occurred in 1852, within a short distance of where he now resides.

His father, William John Spellings, was born in North Carolina and came with his parents to Gibson county when but eight

years of age. John Franklin Spellings' mother was Harriett Ann Wilkinson, a native of Smith county, Tennessee, and her

demise occurred in 1896. William John Spellings was born in 1824 and his demise occurred in 1905. They had one other

son, Tom, who served throughout the Civil war. He lived in Gibson county until his demise in April, 1922.

 

John Franklin Spellings received his education in the common schools of Gibson county and in due time was graduated

from the Milan high school. He then engaged in farming on his own account and has followed agricultural pursuits for

the greater part of his ilfe. In 1897 he was elected town marshal of Milan and he held that office for nine years.

He is said to have been the most popular and efficient public official of that day and was known from one end of the

state to the other as a fearless and faithful man. In the early part of 1900 he went to St. Louis as special agent for

the Terminal Railroad and he remained there three or four years. His heart was in Milan and Gibson county, however, and

he soon tired of city life, and resigned his position and returned to his farm, within a short distance of Milan. He

has been very successful in life and this success may be attributed to his own labors.

 

[p.612] Mr. Spellings has been twice married. His first marriage was celebrated in 1875, when Miss Ella M. Taylor of

Gibson county, became his wife. To their union two children were born: Mrs. Zela Eunice Ramey, and John. Mrs. Spellings'

demise occurred in 1908. In 1910, at Mayfield, Kentucky, Mr. Spellings was married the second time, when Martha Ann

Knight became his wife. She was born in Henderson county, a daughter of Daniel and Elizabeth (Browning) Knight. Her

father was born in 1823 and served throughout the Civil war as a captain in the Confederate army. He was seriously

wounded but returned to his regiment upon his recovery. His demise occurred in 1873. Mrs. Knight was born in 1834 and

died in 1877.

 

John Spellings, the son, has a most enviable war record. Upon the entrance of the United States into the World war he

was quick to put all personal interests aside and he enlisted at Memphis, on the 4th of July, 1917, in Battalion A,

First Tennessee Field Artillery. He was mustered into the Federal service on the 25th of July, at Memphis, and

transferred from Battalion A, First Tennessee Field Artillery, to Battalion A, One Hundred and Fourteenth Field

Artillery, to Fifty-fifth Field Artillery Brigade, Thritieth Division. He encamped at the Fair Grounds in Memphis from

the 25th of July to the 9th of September, 1917, with subsequent moves as follows: Memphis to Nashville,

September 9, 1917; left Nashville September 9 for Camp Sevier, South Carolina, arriving September 11, 1917; left Camp

Sevier on the 19th of May, 1918, and arrived in New York city, May 21; left New York city May 26, 1918, on

H. M. T. Karoa and arrived at Liverpool, England, June 7, 1918; left Liverpool on the 9th of June and arrived at

Winchester the same day, left Winchester on the 12th of June and arrived at Southampton on the same day, leaving almost

immediately for Le Havre, France, where he arrived on the 13th of June and remained there until the 14th; arrived at

Guer on the 16th of June, left there the same day and arrived at Camp Coetquidan, France; left there on the

20th of August, 1918, and arrived in Toul two days later; left there on the 22d and arrived at Traussey on the same

day; remained there until the 24th and then left for Sanzey; arrived there the 25th and remained there until leaving

for Minonville on the 26th; touched the front at this point; left Minonville on the 11th of September, 1918, for

advance position; arrived at Bernecourt the same day; left there on the 12th of September, 1918, on advance; in battle

and fought through the following towns in the St. Mihiel offensive: Arrived Flirey on the 12th of September, 1918; left

on same day and arrived at Bouillonville, September 13, 1918; left there the following day for Argonne front and

arrived at the front on the 24th of September; in battle from the 26th of that month to 8th of October; from Argonne

front to Woevre offensive and was there active from the 8th of November to the 11th; also took part in the Toul

defensive, August 27; and returned to Woevre sector October 11, remaining until November 7.

 

John Franklin Spellings has always been a strict adherent of the democratic party and the principles for which it

stands. Fraternally he is affiliated with the Knights of Pythias and his religious faith is that of the Methodist

church. Mr. Spellings is one of the most energetic and resourceful promoters of the city's advancement and he has been

a liberal contributor to all worthy agencies at work for the good of his community.
