Notes for JAMES TAYLOR I:

      James Taylor, progenitor of our branch of the family, came to Virginia in 1663, He was listed as a headright for Major Jno. Tilney's 1000 acre patent on September 10, 1664. He either had money or a way of earning it in a hurry, On November 17, 1665, the Accomack County court granted him a certifiate for 200 acres of land on the north side of 'Mesango Cr.' due to the transportation of four persons, George Lore, Jno. Foyle, Will. Hawlis, and Jane Souyhby. On April 5, 1666 he recieved the patent for the 200 acres. James was not married when he came and he listed nobody as a headright who could have become his wife. On September 9, 1675 James Taylor appeared on the "List of Tithables for Accomack County" as James Tayler - 2.

 

      On December 22, 1699, James Taylor sold the land he patented to one Edward Moore for " 3,900 pounds of good Tobacco and casks." He bought 100 acres where he was already living on August 6, 1671 for "2,300 pounds of tobacco and casks." This land was the present Maryland line above New Church, Accomack County, Virginia. Here James and his wife Elizabeth lived the rest of his life. His wife Elizabeth seems to of been the daughter of Francis Benston, a land owner in this area and that of James' patented land which he had sold. In 1671 Francis Benston and his wife Mary sold 100 acres to James Taylor, this piece being the southwest corner of 600 acres Francis had bought from the John Wallop patent in 1667. Later in 1667 Col. John West gave a deed of release to Taylor for 100 acres called Hasard's Plantation, but it is not certain that it was the same land Taylor had bought from Benston, and if so, how West had obtained a right to it is unknown, unless it had been a deed of trust.

 

      In 1688 James bought 200 acres between the present villiages of Oak Hall and New Church from Elizabeth Stevens of Somerset County, Maryland. She was a sizable land owner and three decades later descendants of James bought land from her heirs in this same area. In 1689 James and Elizabeth Taylor made a deed of gift to their son James for an undetermined acreage of the 1688 purchase. It appears that son James was married and living on the land when the deed of gift was made. In 1699 1699 James and Elizabeth made deeds of gifts to their daughters Margaret and Elizabeth and their husbands for 75 acres each that was part of the 1688 purchase.

 

      On June 6, 1699 James was given tax exemption because of his "great age and decrepid condition." James conferred the power of attorney on son William who seems to have inherited the home place after the deaths of James and Elizabeth in 1704. At this time William inherited, among other acreage, the 100 acre Hasard Plantation, that was part of the land Francis Benston bought in 1677 and probably sold to James Taylor later in 1677.

Notes for WILLIAM TAYLOR:

      On June 6, 1699 James Taylor, I, the father of William Taylor, was given tax exemption because of his "great age and decrepid condition." James conferred the power of attorney on son William who seems to have inherited the home place after the deaths of James and Elizabrth in 1704. At this time William inherited, among other acreage, the 100 acre Hasard Plantation, that was part of the land Francis Benston bought in 1677 and probably sold to James Taylor later in 1677.

 

      William was probably living in the Oak Hall area when his father died. He was probably married, but his wife's name is unknown. By land transactions we can determine the following children of William's.

The first was from Nathan and Mary Willson Cullver, stating that it was for her interest in the land, which had been left by her great-grandfather James Taylor to his son William, had descended to his son Elias, and then to his daughter Mary as his heir-at-law. The second was from the Cullvers and a James Taylor, stating that Mary had had a half sister Sarah who died without issue, and her interest had passed to James, the brother of Elias.

Notes for James Taylor, Jr.:

The following information has been copied and pasted from the Taylor Family Report on William Toomey's Family Tree Maker website, with the kind permission of Mr. Toomey:

 

James Taylor, II, son of the original James Taylor, was likely married and living on the land in the Oak Hall area when his father made the deed of gift to him in 1689. His wifes name has not been found. The second James died intestate at an unknown date. Later transactions suggest that his affairs were settled by the General Court at Williamsburg and the records have not survived. At the time of the "Civil War" many courthouse documents were burned by the invading Union Army. Through land transactions and the will of the third James Taylor in our line, four of the sons of the second James have been identified. James Taylor is listed in the 1704 Accomack rent rolls (taxes) as owning 200 acres.

Notes for James Taylor III:

The following information has been copied and pasted from the Taylor Family Report on William Toomey's Family Tree Maker website, with the kind permission of Mr. Toomey:

 

James Taylor bought land from his brother Charles in 1734. This was in the Oak Hall area of Accomack County, Virginia and Charles had bought it two years earlier from one Guzaline Vanelson and contained 100 acres. He left this land to sons James, IV and Shadrach.

      James made his will on March 10, 1767, and it was proved August 29, 1769. He and his wife, who had predeceased him had ten children named in the will. He named son Jacob as executor, although he was not the eldest.

      James left personal property to Granddaughter Scarburg, daughter of Jacob, with the provision that it should go to her brother James if she married an extravagant man. He left part of the land purchased from his brother Charles in 1734 to son James provided he not marry any of his cousins. Property left his daughter Sarah was to be forfeited if she should marry Jesse Taylor. He left the home place where he lived to son James.

      James stated that any child who complained about the contents of the will was to have only one shilling of his estate. Shadrock, the eldest son and heir-at-law, was present when the will was presented to the court for probate but he made no objection.

      Through the will and land transactions we can determine his children and most of their spouses.

Notes for Jacob Taylor:

The following information has been copied and pasted from the Taylor Family Report on William Toomey's Family Tree Maker website, with the kind permission of Mr. Toomey:

 

Notes for JACOB TAYLOR:

Jacob and Sarah Taylor had two children when his father made his will on March 10, 1797. Jacob was made executor for his fathers estate although he was not the eldest son. Jacob's second wife Esther and the one who survived him was Mary. The surnames of none of his wives has been found. Sarah was the mother of his children.

Jacob inherited land in the Oak Hall area, and bought more in the Atlantic area of Accomack County. In 1762 Samuel and Peggy Wilson sold 133.5 acres to Jacob Taylor, son of James Taylor. In 1771 Jacob bought 50 acres more in the Atlantic area and it became merged with his other land to the east. In 1792 John Nicholson sold over 300 acres in the Atlantic area to Jacob Taylor. This was a seaside track above the present village of Atlantic. He was living there at the time of his death. He owned a water mill and it is assumed that it was a tide mill, one of many that were built before steam engines came into use.

In 1795 Jacob and his wife Esther sold 50 acres to John Howard and 126 acres to James Taylor, IV. In 1798 Jacob left the home-plantation lower part to his son Henry, and the balance to a son Ayres, but the latter resold his inheritance to a brother Teackle. This was the Atlantic area acreage. He left Taylor Owen, husband of his deceased daughter Scarburgh, acreage in the Atlantic area. Below is the Deed of sale to Taylor Owen from the children of Jacob and their spouses.

Notes for David Crippen Taylor:

The following information on David C. Taylor and his family is quoted from the Taylor chapter of James E. Mears' "Hack's Neck and Its People" and a later revision:

 

In 1827 George Parker (son of Thomas and Elizabeth) sold to Thomas T. Taylor the "Poplar Grove" farm in Hacks Neck. (As Parker's wife was Sarah Ann D. Taylor, daughter of Thomas T. and Nancy Wharton Taylor, of "Mt. Wharton," near Horntown, it is probable that Parker's father-in-law was the purchaser. Sometime after Taylor bought the property from Parker a suit was brought by Thomas R. Joynes against Parker, William Addison and Thomas T. Taylor to recover a debt due by Parker to Joynes, the "Poplar Grove" farm was sold by the sheriff and purchased by Thomas T. Taylor).

 

Just what was the relationship of said Thomas T. Taylor to its later long time owner and occupant, David Crippen Taylor, who was a son of Crippen and Sinah Taylor, has not been ascertained. As has been said, David C. Taylor was a son of Crippen and Sinah Taylor, who lived in the Hunting Creek-Guilford section. Other children of Crippen and Sinah were Thorogood, Samuel C., Shady B. (in 1802 married Ephriam Wessels), Margaret (in 1827 married Thomas C. Gibbs), Matilda (in 1829 married Edmund Bayly, son of Richard), Nancy (in 1811 married George C. Hope).

 

Crippen Taylor, in his will made and probated in 1826, made bequests to his wife Sinah, to his sons Thorogood and David C., to his daughters Shady B. Wessels, Margaret Gibb and Matilda F. Taylor, to grandchildren Marcellus and Alexene Taylor, Samuel C. and Mary A. Hope and to May (or Mary), daughter of Shady B. Wessells.

 

In 1824 in Northampton said David Crippen Taylor gave a marriage bond to marry Margaret Dalby (1807-1861), and the family lived at the "Popar Grove" farm in Hack's Neck until 1862, when it was sold for a division of the estate by Thorogood Taylor, special commissioner, said David having died in 1855. (David, his wife, and other Taylors are buried in St. George's cemetery, Pungoteague, their bodies having been removed from the graveyard on the "Poplar Grove" farm about the turn of the century.)

 

A brother of David Crippen Taylor was Thorogood Taylor (1787-1874), who (according to his granddaughter, Miss Nellie Ford, whose age hovers around three score and ten [in 1937]), lived at "Poplar Grove." Thorogood Taylor married Susan Rodgers (or Rogers), son of John (whose will was probated in 1815) and sister of Levin and John W., who made bequests to said Susan and her children.

 

Thorogood Taylor and family moved from Accomack to Lancaster county about 1835 and he died in Fredericksburg in 1874.

 

Another brother of David Crippen Taylor was Samuel Taylor, who was consul to Peru and to China. He was killed in Richmond, when the floor gave way in the capitol. He was a bachelor.

 

A cousin of theirs was Marcellus Taylor, who was presented with a sword by Gen. Zachary Taylor for building a corn stalk bridge at Santa Ana.

 

This ends Mr. Mears' information.

Notes for Edgar Dalby Taylor:

The following biography of Uncle Edgar's life is quoted from two obituaries for him in the "Confederate Veteran" magazine, Volume XXXVI, March, 1928:

 

Front page:

               OFFICIAL ORDERS

         Headquarters United Confederate Veterans,

                  New Orleans, La., January 30, 1928

 

The General Commanding is pained to announce the death of Lieut. Gen. Edgar D. Taylor, Commander of the Army of Northern Virginia Department, U.C.V., which took place at his home in Richmond, Va., on January 27.

General Taylor served as Adjutant General and Chief of Staff under Gen. Julian S. Carr, from November, 1921, to April, 1923. He was a member and Past Commander of R.E. Lee Camp No. 1, U.C.V.

In 1863, General Taylor, then only a boy, enlisted in Company G, with Edward S. Gay, commander, which was composed of boys fourteen to sixteen years old, and on July 23, 1863, this company was mustered into service as Company G, Henley's Battalion, Troops for Local Defense, and took active part in Dahlgren's Raid, March 1, 1864. They were highly complimented for bravery on that occasion in official reports.

Since the close of the war, General Taylor has been engaged in the drug business, Richmond, Va., and finally became president of the Powers-Taylor Drug Company.

                                     J.C. Foster, General Commanding

Harry Rene Lee, Adjutant General and Chief of Staff

 

The following is a more detailed article from page 88 of that same issue:

 

COMMANDER ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT, U.C.V.

 

The death of Gen. Edgar D. Taylor, Commander of the Army of Northern Virginia Department, U.C.V., which occurred at his home in Richmond, Va., on the 27th of January, has removed an outstanding figure in the in the ranks of Confederate veterans, with whom he had so long been prominently identified. General Taylor was one of those young boys who became soldiers of the Confederacy. He was but fifteen years of age when he enlisted in 1863, becoming a member of Company G, of Henley's Battalion, in the local defense troops commanded by Col. John McAnerny, and he had an active part in defending Richmond from Dahlgren's raiders in March, 1864; then served to the surrender at Appomattox.

General Taylor was born at Poplar Grove, the family home in Accomac County, Va., on August 21, 1848, and became a resident of Richmond at the age of eleven. After the war he was connected with the drug company of R.W. Powers, later becoming a partner in the firm, and then president of the company, which is now the Taylor-Powers Company. His connection with the firm was active up to the time of his serious illness, which came upon him last September. At one time he was president of the National Wholesale Druggists Association.

Always devoted to Confederate interests, General Taylor was known for his activity in behalf of his Confederate comrades. He was Past Commander of the R.E. Lee Camp, of Richmond, and for four years had served as Commander of the Army of Northern Virginia Department, following his term as Adjutant General and Chief of Staff under Commander-in-Chief, Julian S. Carr, of North Carolina. He was a member of the Advisory Board of the Confederate Memorial Literary Society of Richmond, under which the Confederate Museum is conducted, and the flag over the Museum hung at half mast until after his funeral. For many years he made the arrangements for veterans at the Confederate Home to attend the general reunions, and in every way possible ministered to their comfort and welfare.

General Taylor was twice married, his first wife being Miss Emma Cottrell, and the second marriage was to a daughter of Col. H.D. Whitcomb, a prominent engineer, who also preceded him in death. He is survived by five nieces and a nephew.

The Richmond Chapter, U.D.C. (United Daughters of the Confederacy), of which his wife was a member, and with which he had been identified in its good work, passed memorial resolutions expressing "profound sorrow in the loss of a valued and honored friend," and paid him this tribute:

"A loyal and devoted Confederate veteran, General Taylor gave generously of his time, his talents, and his means for the perpetuation of the cause so dear to his heart, and for the welfare and the happiness of the aged and impoverished veterans.

"Richmond Chapter recalls with especial appreciation General Taylor's kindness and consideration of our veterans in the Confederate Home. His greatest pleasure was bringing happiness into their lives, and through his efforts and able assistance the management has secured transportation for them to attend the reunions, special cars, and even comfort being provided for them.

"As Adjutant General under Gen. Julian Carr, and as Commander of the Army of Northern Virginia Department U.C.V., he has left an enduring record as a capable and faithful officer.

"With his devoted wife, a beloved member of the Richmond Chapter, General Taylor gave long and laborious service in the work of the Jefferson Davis Monument Association.

"In recognition of his generous and sympathetic interests in this and other activities of the Daughters of the Confederacy, the Richmond Chapter conferred upon him honorary membership. His record was filled in, and it is filed with other records of the Chapter in the Confederate Museum.

"The members of this Chapter will miss the bright smile and cheerful greeting, and will ever cherish the memory of one whose heart and hand always responded to the call of duty.

"Committees: Mrs. Charles E. Bolling, Mrs. B.A. Blenner, Mrs. Meta Randolph Turpin."

 

The following are two obituaries for Edgar D. Taylor that appeared in "The Richmond Times-Dispatch":

 

TO BURY RICHMONDER MONDAY, 11 O'CLOCK

Edgar D. Taylor Was Prominent Confederate Veteran

 

Edgar Dalby Taylor, 79, president of the Powers-Taylor Drug Company, prominent Confederate veteran, and commander of the Army of Northern Virginia, U.C.V., died yesterday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock at his home on the Three Chopt Road, Westhampton. Funeral services will be conducted at the home Monday morning at 11, followed by burial in Hollywood Cemetery.

 

Mr. Taylor, who was a past commander of R.E. Lee Camp, U.C.V., was born August 21, 1848, at his home place, "Poplar Grove," on the Eastern Shore. At the age of 12 he came to Richmond and about two years later became connected with the drug company of R.W. Powers, then located at Fifteenth and Main Streets. He had been with them up to the time of his death. A few years after becoming connected with the company he became a partner and was named president upon the death of Mr. Powers in 1907.

 

Mr. Taylor in 1863 enlisted in Company G, Henley Battalion, troops for the local defense, commander by Colonel John McAnerny. He had an active part in defending Richmond from Dahlgren's raiders March 1, 1864. In addition to being past commander of R.E. Lee Camp, he was adjutant-general and chief of staff under Commander-in-Chief Julian S. Carr. He was commander of the Army of Northern Virginia at the time of his death.

 

Mr. Taylor, who was a member of the Country Club of Virginia, the Virginia, the Westmoreland, and a Mason, is survived by his nephews and nieces.

 

FUNERAL TODAY FOR GENERAL TAYLOR

Numerous Confederate Veterans Expected to Attend Services

 

The funeral of General Edgar Dalby Taylor, commander of the Army of Northern Virginia, U.C.V., and president of the Powers-Taylor Drug Company, who died Friday afternoon, will be held tomorrow morning, at 11 o'clock, from the family residence, 6209 Three Chopt Road, Rev. William E. Hill, D.D., of Second Presbyterian Church, of which General Taylor was an elder, will conduct the service. Burial will be in Hollywood Cemetery.

 

Active pallbearers will be: L.N. Fox, Dr. B.T. Blackwell, Edwin Palmer, George Watt, Herbert Jackson, Harvey Clarke, Edward Brauer and W.C. Herbert. Honorary pallbearers will be: C.M. Knox, W.C. Miller, John Munte, Philip H. Cowern, Henry Cabell, General Jo Lane Stern, Robert L. Powers, Dr. Stuart McGuire, James Caskie, T.C. Gordon, T.G. Teagle, Judge R.R. Prentis, General W.B. Freeman, Dr. J.H. Smith, Dr. Henry Wharton, of Baltimore; W.B. Lightfoot, Major John B. Cooke, of Gloucester County; Samuel Love and General McKee Evans.

 

All day yesterday the flag at the Confederate Museum was at half mast. It will remain so until after the funeral.

 

He is survived by the following nieces and nephews: Mrs. Edwin Goffigon, of Cape Charles; Mrs. Alice Blackford, of Baltimore; Mrs. J.M. Quarles, of Staunton; Mrs. Emmett McClintic, of Miami; Mrs. Robert Taylor, of Catonsville, Md., and Albert Taylor, of Baltimore.

 

This ends the quoted obituaries. The latter omitted several more nieces and nephews who survived Uncle Edgar, including the children of his eldest sister Susan Ann Taylor Kellam. Those alive when Edgar died were Thomas Hatton Kellam III of Cape Charles, VA; Rebecca Kellam Stevens (my great-great-grandmother) of Shiloh, NC; Margaret Kellam Carder of Raleigh, NC; and Annie Kellam Stevens of Elizabeth City, NC. They were not as close with Uncle Edgar as the children of his brothers.

 

I have had the privilege of knowing a great-niece and great-nephew of Uncle Edgar Dalby Taylor, two of the three children of Judge Julian Minor Quarles (1848-1929) and Cornelia Taylor Quarles (1872-1964) of Staunton, Virginia. Cornelia was especially close with her Uncle Edgar, as both of her parents, Cornelius T. Taylor (1835-1888) and Mary Frances Miller Taylor (1840-1882),  died when she was young and her Uncles David and Edgar Taylor looked after her subsequently. She married Judge Quarles in Uncle Edgar's home in 1903 when he was living on Monument Avenue in Richmond. It was after this time that he moved to the Westhampton section of Richmond and bought his final residence at 6209 Three Chopt Road, next to the Country Club of Virginia where Three Chopt intersects with Cary Street. It was at this residence that Cornelia visited often with her children, where they have fond recollections of a grand era gone by (for upper-class white folks, that is). Cornelia and Judge Quarles' three children were Mary Nelson Quarles Whitehurst (1908-1992), Cornelia Quarles Moffett (1912-2001), and Col. Julian Minor Quarles, Jr. (1917-

                                    

Fortunately I have since had the privilege of going to Staunton and Harrisonburg to meet Judge and Mrs. Moffett and Colonel Quarles. Colonel Quarles has graciously continued to share information with me concerning not only the family genealogy, but also his own impressive World War II experiences and newspaper articles he reads concerning Civil War activities in the Shenandoah Valley. These Quarles cousins recalled Uncle Edgar's house having a horseshoe-shaped driveway with a brick wall around the large yard, in which "Dalby," which Uncle Edgar named the home for his mother's family, inscribed therein. His home on Three Chopt Road was located at the end of the old Richmond streetcar line. Within sight of this home is St. Stephen's Episcopal Church at the corner of Three Chopt and Grove Avenue, of which I am a member. This church was founded in 1911. Mrs. Moffett also recalled that Uncle Edgar had two African-American servants named Lucy and Wash, whose quarters were in Uncle Edgar's backyard which sloped downward toward present-day University of Richmond and the Country Club of Virginia. The home is at the corner of Three Chopt Road and Towana Road, and the next street down, Tapoan, was named for the three men who first developed that area, Taylor, Powers, and Anderson. In April, 2004, Col. Quarles, his great-nephew Fayette Quarles Thackston, and I were given a tour of our Uncle Edgar's home by the current residents, Mr. and Mrs. James E. Covington. They also took us to see the old carriage house behind the home, now a separate residence on another street.

 

Since he had no children and had been widowed twice, it is currently not known what became of Uncle Edgar's estate or how much family memorabilia he owned. Since he was married twice and both of his wives were from Richmond, chances are that they left relatives in town who may have handled the estate since Uncle Edgar's nephews and nieces were unable to do so. It is doubtful that he inherited family portraits or other memorabilia since he was orphaned and left the Eastern Shore for Richmond in his early teenage years, unless he acquired them later.

 

The following is the wedding article of Col. Quarles' parents in Uncle Edgar's home, sent to me by him, from "The Richmond Times-Dispatch," January 22, 1908:

 

                              QUARLES-TAYLOR

                    Times-Dispatch Account of Beautif

                              Wedding in Richmond

 

A beautiful mid-winter wedding was celebrated Wednesday afternoon at 5 o'clock, in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar D. Taylor, No. 1682 Monument Avenue, when their niece, Miss Ida Cornelia Taylor, became the bride of Judge Julian Minor Quarles, of Staunton, the Rev. Russell Cecil, D.D., of the Second Presbyterian Church, officiating. Halls, drawing-rooms and dining-room were prettily decorated with palms, smilax, growing ferns, pink sweet peas and carnations, a massing of holly on the mantels forming an effective contrast with the delicate hue of the flowers. A plaque of sweet peas was the centerpiece on the table, and bowls and vases of carnations placed throughout the rooms developed the pretty color scheme.

Miss Mary Willie Smoot rendered a number of beautiful selectionson the piano and played Mendelssohn's wedding march as a processional.

The bride entered with her uncle, Mr. E.D. Taylor, and was met at the altar by the groom and his best man, Judge S.H. Letcher, of Lexington. She was gowned in white crepe de chine, trimmed with duchess lace. The folds of her veil were caught with a diamond crescent and she carried a shower of lillies of the valley. She was attended by Miss Mayzie Taylor, of Staunton, her cousin and maid of honor, who was attired in biscuit-colored gauze over white taffeta, with a trimming of gold tissue, and who held a great cluster of pink sweet peas sprayed with maidenhair ferns.

The ribbon aisle through which the bridal party passed was formed by Masters Willie and Neal Chapin. Little Misses Charlotte Spotts, of Staunton, and Florence Warwick, of Baltimore, were flower girls. The children were all in white, the boys wearing pink boutonnieres, and the girls, white lingerie frocks and pink ribbons, and carrying baskets of pink sewwt peas.

A reception attended by friends and relatives of the bride and groom, and including a large contingent of Richmond society gave an opportunity for the offering of congratulations and the cutting of the bride's cake.

Mrs. Taylor was gowned in white net, embroidered with pink roses and worn over white satin.

 

Uncle Edgar's company was located on South 13th Street, and is still known as the Powers-Taylor Building. It is one block north of Richmond's fashionable shopping and entertainment district known as Shockoe Slip and within sight of my favorite local restaurant, The Tobacco Company.  I have a copy of a letter he wrote to one of his nieces, dated May 7, 1927, in which the letterhead has a photograph of the building and states "Powers-Taylor Drug Co. Established 1860, Incorporated 1890. Wholesale Druggists, Importers & Jobbers, Druggists' Sundries & Fancy Goods, Soda Fountain Supplies, Drug Store Fixtures. Agents For Buffalo Mineral Springs Water, White Sulphur Springs Water, and Other Mineral Waters. Walrus Soda Fountains, A Full Line of Eli Lilly & Cos Pharmaceuticals." Edgar D. Taylor was listed at the top as President, Robert Lee Powers as Vice-President, P.H. Powers as Secretary and Treasurer, and L.N. Fox as Assistant Treasurer. The original letter is in the possession of my dad's second cousin, Ann Barnes Owens  of Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Her mother, Wilhelmina Coppersmith Adams (1911-2005), inherited this letter and many other family papers. Since Uncle Edgar refers to the person to whom he is writing only as "My dear niece," I am uncertain as to whether he was writing to my great-great-grandmother, Rebecca Kellam Stevens, or to one of her sisters, Margaret or Annie.  Cousin Mina, my Grandfather Godfrey's first cousin,  inherited many Kellam and Taylor family papers and photographs from not only her grandmother, but also Aunt Margaret and Aunt Annie. Her daughter has been most gracious in allowing me to photocopy them. The letter reads as follows:

 

My dear Niece:

 

I want to thank you for the box of pecans which was received a few days ago and will be enjoyed, and Lucy (his African-American servant) certainly appreciated the handkerchief you sent her.

 

Sincerely hope this short note will find you and the family well. I have not been well for the past year; trying to pull myself together and I think I am getting better.

 

We are getting on very well out home and the place is looking very pretty with the flowers and shrubs in bloom.

 

With much love to all, I remain

 

Your fond uncle,

(Signed) E.D. Taylor

Notes for Susan Ann Taylor:

According to family tradition, Susan was a blockade runner during the Civil War. Her great-great-granddaughter, Alice Hooper Lambert of Knoxville, Tennessee, says that Susan went between the lines by filling her petticoat full of medicinal supplies and was never caught. Although her name is not mentioned in "Hack's Neck and Its People" by James E. Mears, it is best to summarize the role of blockade runners in Hack's Neck, the Kellams and their neighbors,  by quoting parts of pages 73-75, as follows:

********************************************************************************************************

BLOCKADE RUNNING FROM HACKS NECK DURING THE CIVIL WAR

 

During the Civil War, John, James and Teackle Bennett, brothers, and Major Guy were among the residents of Hacks Neck who engaged in "running the Federal blockade," supplying goods to people on the Western Shore of Virginia. Accomack and Northampton counties were occupied by Federal troops and the Union ships of war patrolled the Chesapeake and its tributaries, yet these daring men continued to cross the bay and none was captured while making a trip or returning. They used small canoes, usually not more than twenty feet in length, and selected for the journeys dark and often stormy nights. They used small sails and the oars were padded to muffle the ground. On one occasion one came out of thick weather almost under the bow of an enemy ship; at another time, when returning to the Eastern Shore, a blockade runner was sighted and hailed by a Federal ship, and got away by saying that he and his companion were escaping from the other side and were bound to the Eastern Shore to join the Federal army. During the summer night when Capt. John Bennett (a grandson of William Bennett, who was a shipmaster in the Virginia navy during the War of the Revolution) was returning from the Western Shore of Virginia, a severe squall struck just as he was opposite Occohannock creek. On the shore were the lights at the camp of the Union forces. His two companions wanted him to put ashore, though it meant capture, as they expected to be drowned. Bennett, with hatchet in hand, said that if they would do as he directed he would land them safely at home before day, adding that he would do as he directed he would land them safely at home before day, adding that he would strike down with the hatchet any one who interfered or attempted to put the canoe ashore there. He ordered one man to take the tiller. He went forward, chopped off the mast, reset it, and with less sail they arrived in safety at their destination long before dawn. It has been said that none of these blockade runners carried a compass on their boats.

 

The merchandise they transported was, for the most part, obtained from country stores in the interior of southern Accomack and brought into Hacks Neck over the out-of-the-way roads and trails on the darkest of nights. The main roads were avoided wherever possible and crossed, where that was necessary, with the greatest of caution. The blockade runner with a companion usually used a horse or a mule and a cart, one leading the animal and the other following. No word was spoken as they moved through the woods. The articles were hidden in beds and other unsuspected places until a suitable time for making the trip across the bay.

 

A story is told of a blockade runner and a Federal sympathizer, both intimate friends though, who lived on the "Myrtle Grove" farm. At the time the house of Capt. Major Guy, a blockade runner, contained much contraband, as he had planned to start that night. The Unionist, George W. Scott, who had served in the United States army during the Mexican war, saw a Federal friend. The Unionist then went out to greet the soldier, taking along a jug of whiskey. They chatted and drank until the soldier had very little in anything except the "cup that cheers," though he did ask if there were any contraband about. The reply of Scott was: "H---; no; nobody here runs the blockade!" The drinking continued and the soldier later left without making an examination.

 

Before the war ended however, all of the Hack's Neck blockade runners (with one or two exceptions, including Capt. James H. Bennett), and some of the women of their families were taken by the Federal troops and placed in jail at Eastville, where they remained about a month after being fined $25 each. it is stated that all paid the fines but Capt. John Bennett, who remarked that he did not pay to get in and would not pay to get out. In an effort to get said John to give information about the blockade running, the soldiers hanged him by the neck for short periods, until his tongue was forced out, it is said; then they would lower him down for a rest and later repeat the ordeal. He, however, positively declined to reveal anything, saying he would die first.

 

The Federal troops were constantly on the lookout for boats that might be used for blockade running and usually burned all such they discovered unless a permit had been obtained to use them for fishing, oystering or the like. To prevent their craft meeting such a fate, the blockade runners bored holes into their canoes and placed wooden plugs therein, which they removed when they completed a trip, sinking the boat in some out of the way place, where it remained until again needed. The sails were, as a rule, hidden in beds. On one occasion, when a search was being made by the Federals, a sail was concealed in the crib of a sleeping baby.

I have wondered whether my great-great-great-grandmother, Susan Ann Taylor Kellam, was among those jailed at Eastville, but according to a descendant, she was never caught.

 

Susan is said to have etched on the window of one of the upstairs bedrooms at "Evergreen" the statement, "Remember me, Susan Kellam." This is not currently on any of the windows now there, according to the current owner of the home, Mrs. Catherine Johnson.

 

Having been spoiled by her family's prominence and slaves before the Civil War, Susan is said to have declined in health following the war. Her daughter, Rebecca Kellam Stevens (1856-1931), told her family that while her mother was on her death-bed at age forty-nine, she told her children that she wished they could all die with her. The family was about to lose "Evergreen" and other properties. Her great-granddaughter, Evelyne Cox Sherbondy (1910-2002), told me she is nearly certain Susan died and is buried at "Evergreen." If that is the case, the grave must have been left unmarked, for the last marked tombstone there is that of Susan's eldest child, Susan Arinthea Kellam, who died in 1855 at the age of nine. Evelyne said Susan Ann was the last family member buried at "Evergreen," and she also said that her tombstone had disappeared. I was never sure whether she was confusing Susan Ann with Susan's eldest daughter Susan Arinthea, whose tombstone is still extant, but the fact that she said Susan's tombstone disappeared indicates she may have been referring to her great-grandmother.  Also, I have not found Susan's death listed in Accomack County Death Records. This indicates she could have died while the family was staying in Baltimore at their summer house, yet keep in mind that in the early days of vital records collection in Virginia, many births and deaths were not recorded, particularly in rural areas. Since her husband, Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr., went to live with their son David in Northampton County in his later years, he is buried there at Johnson's United Methodist Church on Bayside Road next to Uncle David and family.

Died 2: 22 Sep 1874, Pungoteague, Accomack Co., VA13

Burial: Unknown, probably "Evergreen, " Hack's Neck, Accomack Co., VA.

Event: 1873, As she lay dying, she stated how fearful she was of her children growing up in the postbellum South and wished they could die with her; the family was about to lose the "Evergreen" plantation.

Military service: Abt. 1863, According to a descendant, she was among the blockade runners of the Hack's Neck area during the Civil War but was never caught.

Residence 1: Bef. 1845, Probably grew up mainly at the "Poplar Grove" farm in Hack's Neck; Accomack Co., VA. However, her brother David was born in Richmond Co., VA in 1840, and there is a tradition that she was from there, which is across the Chesapeake Bay from Accomack.

Residence 2: Aft. 1845, Lived mainly at "Evergreen" in Hack's Neck following her marriage as her husband inherited the plantation from his grandmother in 1846; in 1860 they were living in Nansemond Co., VA, with her mother and brother Edgar, but must have returned to Accomack.

Comments by Bryan S. Godfrey, great-great-great-grandson:

 

 

Although his Family Bible and his gravestone show his date of birth as 28 October 1819, Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr.'s birthdate is subject to question. If that were correct, then he should have been 87 (almost 88) when he died 10 July 1907, yet his obituary states he was 83 years old. In a Hack-Jacob Family Bible, the birthdates of his sister Anne and sister Susan were given, but he was omitted. Susan was born in October 1823, and there are no more entries for children of Thomas Hatton Kellam, Sr. and Elizabeth Bell Jacob Kellam after that date. This was my first source of suspicion that perhaps Thomas was born later than 1819. The second item which made me suspect 1819 is an incorrect date is the fact that his sister Anne Eastburn Kellam was born  27 February 1820, less than nine months after Thomas would have been born if 28 October 1819 were his birthdate. Third, in what appears to be yet another Bible or other handwritten family record of the Thomas Hatton Kellam family and the Robert and Elizabeth Hack Jacob family (apparently inherited or photocopied by the family of his granddaughter Helen Stevens Coppersmith Evans), 28 October 1826 is listed as his birthdate, and the correct birth order of Thomas and his siblings is listed, with Thomas in between Rebecca and Robert. In the book "Hacks Neck and Its People", James E. Mears lists Thomas after his sister Rebecca Nichols Kellam, but he did not seem to know their years of birth anyhow as he did not state them. It seems he used an 1837 deed to assume the birth order of the children of Thomas Hatton Kellam, Sr., one in which Thomas, Sr. was selling some property of his late mother-in-law, Elizabeth Hack Jacob, with the document specifying that he was guardian of his children Ann E., Elizabeth Margaret, Susan Jacob, Rebecca Nichols, Thomas Hatton, Jr., Robt. Jacob, and John Henry Kellam. Therefore, I concluded that Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr. must have been born on 28 October 1826 instead of 28 October 1819. This seems confirmed by the 1850 census, which lists his age as 24, and the 1860 census, which lists his age as 33. However, census records are notoriously inaccurate and inconsistent. Why was Thomas' birthdate listed as 1819 in one Bible record and on his headstone, but 1826 in another record? Perhaps because it was "looked down upon" in those days for the husband to be younger than the wife. If Thomas were born in 1826, then Susan would have been two years older. I even read in the genealogy of the Upshur family, from which Thomas was descended, that there was a family member whose date of birth was deliberately fabricated on the gravestone so the husband would not appear younger than the wife when in actuality he was. So this could be the case with Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr. To repel any fears that he could have been adopted, it is worth noting that his mother has a resemblance to his youngest daughter Annie Lee Kellam according to their portraits, and also, if he were adopted, it is unlikely he would have been his paternal grandmother's sole heir to her "Evergreen" plantation. Plus, his great-granddaughter, Evelyn Cox Sherbondy (1910-2002), once told me that her first cousin, Wilhelmina Coppersmith Adams (1911-2005), greatly resembled their great-great-grandmother, Elizabeth Bell Jacob Kellam, according to the aforementioned portrait of Elizabeth which Cousin Evelyne inherited and allowed me to photocopy.  I am listing 28 October 1826 as the date of birth of Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr.

 

Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr. was born presumably on the "Evergreen" plantation. According to his great-granddaughter, Evelyne Cox (Twiford) Sherbondy, he went to school at either Oxford or Harvard University, but she could not recall which. However, if he was born as late as 1826 as I suggested above, this seems questionable as he married Susan Ann Taylor in 1845, at about the age of nineteen years, if this supposition is correct. Cousin Evelyne inherited from her mother a pencil sketch he had done of the campus he attended and has given it to me. At the bottom of the sketch is labelled "North Front of Southampton Gate." Having toured Oxford in 2001 while on a vacation to England, I can vouch that the picture appears to resemble that campus, but I should have taken this sketch with me to inquire whether the tower Thomas sketched in the picture resembles anything around Oxford. If he did indeed attend Oxford, Thomas probably was in contact with his Hatton cousins in London, the nephews of his great-grandfather, Walter Hatton, Sr., who came to the Eastern Shore of Virginia before the Revolutionary War as a tax collector for King George III. Thomas H. Kellam and his children were certainly very proud of their Hatton connection and had saved letters and sermons written by one of Walter Hatton's brothers who was a minister in England. These letters were inherited by Cousin Mina Coppersmith (Barnes) Adams (1911-2005) and are now in her daughter's possession.

 

According to Eastern Shore historian James Egbert Mears (1884-1975) in his 1937 book, "Hack's Neck and Its People," Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr. "lived at the Evergreen farm until a while before the Civil War, when he was, for a time, a resident of Smithfield, Virginia, though he later returned to said farm which his grandmother, Margaret Hatton Kellam (later Beard), bequeathed him in her will probated in 1845." However, a descendant of Thomas, Larry Clinton Brown of Richmond, Virginia, found his name and family, including his mother-in-law Margaret Dalby Taylor, in the 1860 Census of Nansemond County (present-day City of Suffolk), Virginia. Nansemond-Suffolk adjoins Isle of Wight County, of which Smithfield is the county seat. It is uncertain how long they lived there, and perhaps at least one of their children was born in Nansemond, even though Cousin Evelyne claimed they were all born at "Evergreen" in Accomack County.

 

His wife, Susan Ann Taylor, whom he married in 1845, was the eldest daughter of David C. and Margaret Dalby Taylor, who lived nearby at the "Poplar Grove" farm in Hack's Neck, which no longer stands. All of the children of Thomas H. and Susan Ann Kellam were said to have been born on the "Evergreen" plantation, which was the family home until Thomas deeded it to his son about 1874, who lost it shortly thereafter due to the high taxes imposed by the Federal Government on many properties throughout the South. In the prosperous antebellum days, the Kellams owned numerous slaves and enjoyed great wealth living on a plantation which had been in the female lineages of the family since the 1600's. The immigrant ancestor, Dr. George Hack, from whom Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr. was descended through both of his parents, who were fourth cousins, was the first one who patented land in Hack's Neck, part of which was the later "Evergreen" farm. George Hack's great-granddaughter, Francina Hack (1706-1784), married Adam Muir (1705-1772), probably a Scottish emigrant, who built the present brick Georgian-style "Evergreen" mansion sometime between 1750 and his death in 1772. Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr. was a great-great-grandson of Adam and Francina Hack Muir.  Because so many of the Muir heirs died young and/or without heirs through three generations, Thomas was sole heir to "Evergreen." The majority of his brothers and sisters died young.

 

According to Evelyne Sherbondy, her Great-Grandfather Kellam also inherited the "Myrtle Grove" farm which he used as his wedding dowry when he married Susan Taylor. This has not been confirmed, but it is likely since "Myrtle Grove," located across a creek from "Evergreen," was the home of Thomas' uncle, John Custis Kellam (1792-1845), who was married twice but died without children.

 

The following statements are quoted from James E. Mears' book, "Hack's Neck and Its People," and since Thomas Hatton Kellam was the last in the direct lineage to own "Evergreen," perhaps here is the best place to summarize the history of the ownership of this plantation in the family:

 

Immediately to the west of the boundary of land owned by Robert Hutchinson at the time of his death in 1712 (the major part of the extreme western portion of which is, as hereinbefore stated, now owned by George Ames Bonniwell), is what is now known as the "Evergreen" farm, almost all of which has its easternly boundary along Bucklands Gut and the said "Evergreen" road, hereinbefore mentioned, and extends south to the Hacks Neck-Pungoteague highway. The "Evergreen" farm of today is less than half of the boundary that was held in its entirety by the lineal descendants of the original patentee from 1659 to 1874, though through several different family names.

 

In 1659 Dr. George Hack (or Hacke), a native of Cologne, Germany, was granted a certificate for 1350 acres of land on the Eastern Shore of Virginia as a compensation for transporting twenty-seven persons to the colony, and it is obvious that included in that grant are the lands now comprising the "Evergreen," "Rose Hill," "Fisherman's Rest," and "Myrtle Grove" farms. Dr. Hack died in 1665, leaving a widow, Anna, and two sons, George Nicholas and Peter.

 

This 1350-acre tract obviously became the property of Dr. Hack's son, George Nicholas Hack, later a lieutenant-colonel, who was high sheriff of Accomack county towards the end of the seventeenth century and in 1703 a member of the county court. In 1696 Lt. Col. George Nicholas Hack added to the northeastern portion of the 1350-acre grant a tract of 66 acres purchased from Robert Hutchinson. In his will, probated in 1705, Lt. Col. George Nicholas Hack bequeathed this land to his son, George.

 

In 1712 Capt. George Hack, son of said Lt. Col. George Nicholas Hack, bequeathed to his widow, Sarah, "my land and plantation whereon I now live during her widowhood and at her death or remarriage to my daughters Francina and Betty and to their heirs forever." In 1729 Adam Muir, who had married Francina, petitioned the Court to appoint commissioners to divide the tract between him and James Gibson --whether in right of Gibson's wife or mother is not known. The report of commissioners was filed and recorded in Wills of Accomack, 1729-37, part 1, p. 54. (At that time the residence seems to have been very near the northeast corner of the tract, obviously on or very near Bucklands Gut). In 1733 James Gibson and Sarah, his wife, deeded their interest in a tract of land "on which Adam now lives" to Adam Muir. (Land causes, 16 Sept., 1731, p. 16, show that Sarah, wife of James Gibson, was a daughter of Thomas Preeson, of Northampton, and sister of Susanna, wife of Peter Bowdoin, and of Hannah Presson, unmarried.)

 

Muir was "a merchant at Pungoteague," and also "Deputy Collr. of His Majesty's Customs and Naval Officer of the District of Accomack, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia." (Deed Book 1757-70, p. 1 et seq.). He is believed to have been the builder of the two-story, Georgian style, brick residence, about 60X25 feet, (located more to the northwest of the tract than the original Hack residence), that continues to be the main residence on the "Evergreen" farm. Evidently the construction was supervised by a skilled engineer. The walls are twenty inches thick at the base and sixteen inches at the eves. The chimneys have several flues. The roof was renewed about a generation ago. The roof rafters were made from the heart of gum timber and deterioration was only at the ends where water had reached them through a leaky roof. According to tradition, the bricks were brought from England. It was only during the present century that the brick walls were covered with a cement stucco. The porches, on either side (east and west), continued until within the recollection of those now living. The frame addition on the southern end was built during the occupancy of Capt. John Kelso, the owner, between 1875 and 1883. It has been said that much of the material in the addition Capt. Kelso had had cut for use in the construction of a sailing vessel for a son, but the son expressing a disinclination for such a craft, the lumber went into the erection of the addition. Another tradition is that during the Colonial days and early times of our republic, when sailing vessels made numerous trips from Pungoteague creek to the West Indies, the large cellar under the brick portion of the residence was sometimes used to hide smuggled merchandise.

 

In 1766 Adam Muir and Francina, his wife, conveyed this tract to Col. Thomas Hall, though in a few months said Hall re-conveyed same to Muir with the statement that the conveyances had been with the view of making the title more secure in the Muirs. The description as contained in the deed to Col. Hall, made in July of that year, follows: "All that certain tract of land and plantation, lying and being on the bay side, on the south side of Pungoteague river or creek, in the county of Accomack, whereon the said George Hack died, seized and possessed and which at his death came unto the said Francina, his only daughter and heir, containing 1616 acres of land, be the same more or less, and bounded westernly by the bay side, southerly by a creek called Butcher's creek, northerly by Pungoteague creek to Buckland's gut and from thence a line of marked trees dividing this from the land of John Hutchinson and easterly by a line of marked trees dividing this land from sundry adjacent tracts."

 

Adam Muir, by will probated in 1772 (Will Book 1772-4, p. 18), gave to "my affectionate wife, Francina Muir, all that tract of land where I now live (and as formerly possessed by her father, George Hack, containing 1416 acres more or less) to her and her heirs forever," as well as all of his personal property except minor gifts to his children: Adam, Elizabeth, Ann, Sarah, and Margaret. Francina Muir (Will Book 1784-87, p. 139) bequeathed the tract to her daughters, Elizabeth, Ann, and Sarah Muir "for and during their natural lives and the survivor of them (but should either of them marry they are to have no right in the mansion house or the yard and houses around or nigh it but that is to remain in possession of the survivor remaining single)." (Possibly Adam Muir, Jr., was dead at the time his mother's will was made, though the court records show he was alive at the time his father's will was probated. Margaret, mentioned in the will of Adam but not that of Francina, had been married to Walter Hatton, Sr., and died in 1774).

 

Walter Hatton, Jr., never came into possession of the property, as he died in 1799, and his aunts, above mentioned, were then living. Walter, Jr., however, in his will, probated in 1800, (Wills, etc. of the District Court) bequeathed his interest in same in reversion as follows: To his sister Anne the portion now known as "Evergreen," "Rose Hill" and "Fisherman's Rest," and the remainder, now called "Myrtle Grove" to his sister Margaret during her natural life and at her death to her youngest son, John Kellam, "and the heirs of his body," etc. Anne, (wife of William Taliaferro, who was living in King & Queen county, Va., when his will was made in 1804), died in 1803 leaving no living issue, and her share eventually became into possession of her sister, Margaret, who had married John Kellam, and, after his death, Matthew Beard. In 1808 Beard and Margaret made a deed to John C. and Thomas Hatton Kellam an equal number of acres of cleared land, John C. taking the "Myrtle Grove" and Thomas Hatton the remainder. Despite the conveyance of Margaret and Matthew Beard in 1808, obviously Margaret claimed an interest in the entire property, for in 1837 she conveyed to her son, John C. Kellam, all her right, title and interest in the "Myrtle Grove," containing 700 acres, and in her will, probated in 1845, she bequeathed to her grandson, Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr., son of Thomas Hatton Kellam, Sr., the "Evergreen" farm. John C. Kellam, though twice married, died without issue; he bequeathed the "Myrtle Grove" farm to his nephew, said Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr., for life, with reversion to the latter's oldest son.

 

Financial difficulties following the Civil War caused said Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr., to lose these properties, he having given mortgages on the "Rose Hill" farm, originally the northwestern part of the "Evergreen" farm, on the "Evergreen" farm and on his life interest in the "Myrtle Grove" farm. In 1874 the "Evergreen" and the life interest in the "Myrtle Grove" were purchased by Eugene J.W. Read, George T. Garrison and John Neely, who held a $4000 mortgage on same, and on the same day they sold the "Evergreen" farm to Capt. John Kelso for $4750. Except for an aggregate of about five acres in the hamlet of "Smithville," sold to George W. Smith, Benjamin Thomas Bonniwell, William J. Kelly, Columbus Conway, and William L. Evans, in different lots, between 1808 and 1901, three acres sold to John Heath, colored--the latter tract about a third of a mile south of "Smithville"--and about fifteen acres from the southeastern boundary, near the Evergreen Methodist Church, sold to James W. and Elijah Sample and Samuel Read, colored men, the "Evergreen" has remained intact and was possessed by said Kelso when he died in 1903, after which it was purchased by the Martin & Mason Company, the present owners. The "Rose Hill" farm, containing 250 acres, more or less, was in 1877 sold under mortgage foreclosure and purchased by Thomas Johnson and Louis Snead, and in 1880 said Kelso and his father-in-law, George W. Mason, purchased from Edward J. Corbin, Kelso's son-in-law, Thomas C. Pitts, executor of said Snead, and Thomas Johnson, the "Rose Hill" farm, containing 200.15 acres. In 1881 said Kelso and said Mason bought from William Griffin Hoffman a tract of fifty acres, more or less, called "Fisherman's Home," formerly a part of "Rose Hill," which said Hoffman purchased from George T. Garrison, trustee, in 1876. In 1883 said Kelso sold to said Mason his interest in the "Rose Hill" and "Fisherman's Home" farms. Said Mason, in his will, probated in 1898, bequeathed "Rose Hill" and "Fisherman's Home" to his son, James Walter Mason, from whose estate, early in the twentieth century, they were purchased by said Martin & Mason Company, the present owners (in 1937).

 

The life interest of Thomas H. Kellam, Jr., in the "Myrtle Grove" farm having, in the 1870's, been purchased by said George W. Mason, a few years later he purchased the interest of Thomas H. Kellam III, to whom the tract, under the will of John C. Kellam, would have reverted at the death of Thomas H., Jr. After the death of George W. Mason in 1898, his executor sold said Mason's interest in said property to Smith Kendall Martin II, who now has the fee simple title to said tract. About 1934 a re-survey of the boundary lines, made in 1818, between the original "Evergreen" and "Myrtle Grove" farms was made, and by agreement the line through certain portions of the woodsland and marsh straightened, increasing slightly the acreage in the "Myrtle Grove" tract.

 

There is a tradition that large vessels used to enter what is now a gut between the "Evergreen" and "Rose Hill" farms, though in view of the shallow water now in same, that seems hardly possible. However, it is well known that many acres of this farm have washed into the creek, probably as much as hundreds of the original 1416-acre boundary. There is not now a vestige of a rather high embankment, which the Eastern Shore militia, early in 1861, used as a breastworks, though thirty years later it was some little distance from the waterline and quite a clump of pines were growing thereon. This "fort" was located between the south shore of Pungoteague creek and the northwest shore of Bucklands Gut.

 

The graveyard on the "Evergreen" farm is hardly more than 400 feet southeast of the "mansion house" and now no tmore than fifty feet from the gut separating the "Evergreen" and "Rose Hill" farms. Tombstones mark the following graves: Adam Muir (Sr.), 1705-1772, Francina Muir, 1706-1784. James Muir, 1778-1796. Ann Muir, 1732-1807. Sarah Muir, 1741-1827. Thomas Hatton Kellam, 1790-1841, Elizabeth B., wife of Thomas Hatton Kellam, 1793-1835. Susan Arinthea, daughter of Thomas H. and Susan Ann Kellam, 1846-1855. Walter Hatton, 1766-1799. Mary, daughter of Walter and Margaret Hatton, died 21st Dec., 1773, in her 4th year. An unnamed daughter of William and Anne Taliaferro, died at birth, Dec. 3, 1803. Anne Hatton, wife of William Taliaferro, died Sept. 25, 1804, aged 39 years. "In the Hope of Rifing at the laft Day to a Bleffed and Glorious Immortality. Here lyes the Body of Margaret, the wife of Walter Hatton. Was born on the 6th of March, 1745, and departed this life the 16th Jany, 1774. She was a dutiful child, a loving wife, an affectionate relation & a tender parent. Reader, whoever thou art, prepare to follow her."

 

During the ownership of the "Evergreen" farm by Thomas Hatton Kellam II the only son of Egbert G. Bayly, the owner at the time of the "Poplar Grove" farm, was visiting the Kellam family. Hawks were depredating, so young Bayly mounted a young horse, took a shot gun and rode into the orchard. While on the back of the animal, he fired the gun, which scared the horse, causing it to "run away." As it passed the northwest corner of the main residence, Bayly was thrown violently and his head crushed against the brick wall, resulting in his death. According to the superstitious, when the weather was damp what had the appearance of blood could be seen on the wall where young Bayly was killed. The entire exterior of the building having been stuccoed almost a generation ago, no one now reports the alleged phenomenon.

 

This ends the quoted information from the Hack's Neck book.

 

According to family tradition, during the Civil War the Kellam family hid many of their prized possessions on the "Evergreen" property so Yankee troops would not find and pillage them. Much of the family silver was hid in a well, and crystals were also buried on the property and discovered nearly a century later by subsequent owners.

 

I have not researched all the slave schedules of Accomack to determine how many slaves Thomas owned at various times, but unfortunately it was quite a few. After my great-grandmother, Rebecca Stevens Godfrey (1888-1963), a granddaughter of Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr., was committed to a mental institution in North Carolina in 1942, a brief family history was recorded. It was noted that her mother, Rebecca Kellam, "was a schoolteacher from Maryland, and was a member of a very wealthy family. Her father [Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr.] before the Civil War owned about 80 negroes and a large amount of land on both the eastern and western shores of Maryland." It was inaccurate in saying Maryland (though Rebecca probably taught in Maryland before meeting her husband in North Carolina) instead of Virginia, so the fact that he owned 80 slaves could be an embellishment, but in any case, Thomas was a wealthy planter, slaveholder, and landowner before the Civil War. My great-grandmother's tentative diagnosis during the 1940s and 1950s was involutional melancholia, a term no longer used as a psychiatric disorder, and it was noted in 1951 that she looked on the dark side of things. The fact that her mother, Rebecca Kellam Stevens, often talked of her prominent plantation upbringing on the Eastern Shore and in Baltimore, and lamented how much they lost after the "late unpleasantness," may have contributed to my great-grandmother's negative outlook on life, especially if she contrasted her own situation as a tenant farmer's wife with her mother's childhood.

 

Where Thomas went immediately upon losing "Evergreen" is uncertain, but he likely spent a lot of time with his family in Baltimore, where he owned a summer house. It is uncertain as to whether he lost that house also or how long it remained in the Kellam family. Several of Susan's siblings lived in Baltimore. More than likely the family went to Baltimore back and forth using the steamship lines that operated between the Eastern Shore and mainland.

 

In his later years, Thomas went to live with his son David, who was a merchant and potato farmer at Shady Side in Northampton County. Uncle David's home still stands on present U.S. Highway 13, according to a 1998 telephone interview of his granddaughter, Mrs. Lillian Jacob Oliver (1911-2003), who at the time was eighty-seven years old and lived with her son near there. Thomas died in this home on July 10, 1907. According to Evelyne Sherbondy, he died a very poor man compared to what he came into the world with, mainly as a result of the South's devastation after the Civil War. However, his son David helped regain the family's former prominence when he became a successful, leading merchant and potato farmer of Northampton County.

 

While trying to claim an alleged legacy from the Hatton estate in England in 1906, Thomas' grandson, Dr. Claude Dalby Kellam (1881-1922), who was living at Norfolk, Virginia at the time, inquired about the family history. Grandpa Kellam wrote him a letter as follows, using stationery with his son David's business on the letterhead which stated, DAVID C. KELLAM, Cash Dealer in General Merchandise Flour, Feed, Hay, & Bran; Ladies' Fine Shoes and Dress Goods; Furniture & Housekeeping Specialties, Shady Side, VA:

 

                                     February 23, 1906

 

My dear Claude,

Evergreen was settled and surveyed by my three (3) great Aunts, Sallie, Anne and Elizabeth Muir. When this Peninsula was under English rule, they brought the bricks for the Evergreen house from England. They took up fourteen hundred (1400) acres of lands lying between Pungoteague and Butcher's Creek. They were maiden ladies, and when they died they left all their property to my grandmother Margaret Hatton, who was sister to Walter Hatton. Walter Hatton was sent here by the English Government as Collector of Customs at the port of Accomack, now called Drummondtown. I was sole heir of all my Grandmother's property. These are facts that I can swear to. If I can be of further service let me hear from you.

                                     Affect'ly

                                     Yr Grandfather

                                     Thomas Hatton Kellam

 

There is an error here. Margaret Hatton Kellam, grandmother of Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr., was the daughter of the Walter Hatton who was sent to the Eastern Shore as collector of customs. She had a brother named Walter Hatton, Jr. (1766-1799).

 

Below is a letter written by Thomas to his youngest daughter, Annie Lee Kellam Stevens (1866-1952) of Elizabeth City, North Carolina, that I photocopied from the collection of my grandfather's first cousin, Wilhelmina Coppersmith Adams (1911-2005), Annie's great-niece:

 

Shady Side, Va.

Decem. 27, 1904

 

My Dear Child,

 

I expect you think that I have forgotten to write, but such is not the case, I was very glad to hear from you, and would have written sooner but I have been quite sick with a deep cold and cough, and am glad to say that I am feeling better. We have had a deep snow which has lasted a week and all of us have been sick with colds. I hird [sic] from Maggie [Margaret Elizabeth Kellam Cooke, his daughter] Sunday. She will leave Cape Charles for good the 12 of January. She is going to travel again. Cant make any thing [sic] at Cape Charles. Mina [Lucy Wilmina Kellam, his son David's daughter] is at home. I do not think she will go off to school any more. Hellen's [sic] [Helen Pauline Kellam, another daughter of David] health is not good, she has a coff [sic] I do not like. I am sorry to hear that Cale [Caleb Walston Stevens, Annie's husband] is losing. I would advise him to stop speculating as the tide seems to have turned against him, and be satisfied with what he can make in the store. Tel [sic] Pearl [Pearl Kellam Stevens, Annie's daughter] not to give herself any trouble about the jewelry [?]. I have paid the 2.00 and it is all right. She may do what she pleases with what she has I do not want it. I must write a [?] to Pearl and as I have [?] [?] to write will close, all join me in love to you all, write when you can, from your loving father,

T.H. Kellam

 

 

 

 

 

The following is the obituary of Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr., quoted from "The Eastern Shore News":

 

DEATH OF MR. KELLAM

 

Mr. Thomas H. Kellam, an aged and highly respected citizen of this county, died Wednesday after a short illness at the home of his son David C. Kellam. He was 83 years old and has been feeble several years. Mr. Kellam in early life married a Miss Taylor, who preceded him to the grave some years ago. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon and the interment was at Johnsontown Cemetery.

 

Below is some more additonal information about "Evergreen", quoted from pages 691-92 of Ralph T. Whitelaw's "Virginia's Eastern Shore":

 

 

The house is known as Evergreen. On the 1818 survey there was shown a story-and-a-half house southeast of the main dwelling and near the grave yard, so that may have been the original Hack home, but it has since disappeared. When the inventory of Dr. George Hack was taken in 1665, rooms mentioned were a Hall, Middle Room, Entry and Inward Room. The existing house probably was built after 1766 when Adam Muir formally obtained title to the land. It is substantially built of brick, and is one of the few early hip-roofed houses on the Shore. The walls are twenty-six inches thick at the base and taper to sixteen inches thick at the eaves. It was entirely plastered over, early in the present century, but at the edges the plastering has chipped enough to show that the quoins are of brick, the edges of which are beveled and there is also a beveled-brick top course to the water table. At one time the front and rear entrances had the customary small porches. After the Kelso purchase the old interior woodwork (probably including some very good paneling) was removed, new trim put in and the walls replastered.

 

It is said that several large portraits in oil of members of the Muir family hung on the walls for many years; towards the end of the Kellam ownership, while the house was occupied by the family of Benjamin Wescott, they had boarding with them three sisters: the Misses Eliza, Jennie and Bettie Powell. One day the girls turned all of the pictures to the wall as a prank, and that night there were weird sounds and noises like huge chains being dragged across the floors, so after that, the pictures were considered as harbingers of ill fortune. Some say that the next owner had the pictures taken down and burned, while others claim that the frames were removed and the canvasses plastered over when the house was being renovated.

 

Formerly a driveway about thirty feet wide and paved with gravel extended up to the main entrance. Beside a number of trees and shrubs in various parts of the large yard, there were rows of Lombardy poplars separating the yard from the fields on the north and south sides. Across a little gut west of Evergreen house was a part of the plantation called Rose Hill.

 

 

More About Thomas Hatton Kellam, Jr.:

Burial: Unknown, Johnson's United Methodist Church, Bayside Road near Routes  618 & 622, Northampton Co., VA

Census 1: 1850, Was listed in St. George Parish, Accomack Co., VA, as age 24 with real estate valued at $10, 000. His wife Susan was listed as age 25. He could have been born as late as 1826 and therefore been younger than his wife.

Census 2: 13 Jul 1860, He and his family were listed in the census of the Lower Parish of Nansemond Co. (present-day City of Suffolk), VA. His age is shown as 33, and Susan's age is shown as 34. Listed in the household was the housekeeper Eleanor Holly, and some Taylors.

Census 3: 13 Jul 1860, His mother-in-law, Margaret Dalby Taylor, and her youngest son, Edgar Dalby Taylor, were listed in his household in Nansemond Co., VA. Value of real estate--$11, 000; value of personal estate--$6000.

College: According to his great-granddaugher, Evelyne Cox Sherbondy (1910-2002), he attended either Oxford or Harvard University. He drew a pencil sketch of the campus, now owned by his great3-grandson, Bryan S. Godfrey.

Comment 1: 28 Oct 1819 is given as the date of his birth in the Kellam Family Bibles (two of which were inherited by great-granddaughter Evelyne Cox Sherbondy) and on his headstone. However, his 1907 obituary gives his age as 83. Maybe 1823 is the correct year.

Comment 2: His sister Ann was listed first in the Hack section of James E. Mears' 1937 Hack's Neck book. He wasn't listed in the Hack-Jacob Bible record, and only the first few children of Thomas H. Kellam, Sr. were. Could his 1819 birthdate be wrong--maybe later?

Comment 3: I am listing 28 Oct 1823 as his birthdate until I learn more since it seems impossible that 28 Oct 1819 was his birthdate due to sister Ann's DOB. If Oct 1823 is correct, then he and his sister Susan were twins. This date would fit the age of 83 in obit.

Comment 4: The 1850 census age suggests he could have been born as late as 1826, two years younger than his wife. Because it was looked down upon then for the husband to be younger than the wife, he could have made up his birth year as 1819 to conceal being younger.

Comment 5: The date of sister Ann's birth, 27 Feb 1820, or the date of his birth, 28 Oct 1819, may be in error, as they are less than nine months apart. Thomas' obituary in 1907 stated he was 83, not 87 which he would be if 1819 is the correct date.

Comment 6: Used "Myrtle Grove" as his wedding dowry

Ethnicity/Relig.: Episcopalian; may also have been a member of the Evergreen Methodist Episcopal Church near his farm.

Occupation: Bef. 1865, Planter; had over 15 slaves at one time.

Property 3: 1850, Owned 11 slaves according to the 1850 Slave Schedule of Accomack Co., VA.

Property 4: 1860, Owned 12 slaves according to the 1860 slave schedule.

Residence 1: "Evergreen, " Accomack Co., VA mainly; Baltimore, MD; lived in Nansemond Co., VA ca. 1860; after losing "Evergreen, " he lived his later years with his son David at Shady Side, Northampton Co., VA, where the home still stands on present-day Route 13.

Residence 2: According to "Hack's Neck and Its People, " he lived for a time at Smithfield, VA but returned to "Evergreen." In the 1860 Census he and his family, and mother-in-law and her son Edgar Taylor, are listed as residents of Nansemond Co., VA.

        157.  Cornelius Thoroughgood8 Taylor (David Crippen7, Crippen6, Shadrack5, James4, James3, James2, Thomas1 Taylor?) was born 03 Jul 1835 in probably "Poplar Grove, " Accomack Co., VA, and died May 1888 in Baltimore, MD.  He married (1) Mary Frances Miller 25 Jul 1857 in Worcester Co., MD, daughter of Francis Miller and Louisa Gillett.  She was born 14 Sep 1840 in Accomack Co., VA, and died 04 May 1882 in Accomack Co., VA.  He married (2) Charlotte Custis Poulson 10 Jan 1883 in Cokesbury, Accomack Co., VA, daughter of Robert Poulson and Catherine Custis.  She was born 1850 in probably Onancock, Accomack Co., VA, and died 1929 in Accomack Co., VA.

 

Notes for Cornelius Thoroughgood Taylor:

The following information on Uncle Neal Taylor is quoted from James E. Mears in his 1937 book, "Hack's Neck and Its People," and from supplemental information he compiled in the 1960's which is in the Eastern Shore Public Library at Accomac, Virginia:

 

Cornelius Thorogood Taylor (1835-1888). Going to Baltimore from Belle Haven after the Civil War, Cornelius engaged in the tobacco business under the name of Sneeringer, Taylor, & Company. In 1879 he bought the Jollys Neck farm, near Onancock [incorrect--near Jenkins Bridge], and returned to the Eastern Shore. In 1888 he returned to Baltimore, dying (suddenly) there the same year.

 

Cornelius was twice married, first to Mary Frances (1840-1882), daughter of Col. Francis and Louisa Gillett Miller, of "Poplar Grove," in upper Accomack [a different farm from the "Poplar Grove" that Cornelius was raised at in lower Accomack]. Of their children, all died in infancy except Neer, who died at the age of 14, Orin, who died at the age of 22, and Cornelia, born 1872 in Baltimore. She married Judge Julian Minor Quarles, of Staunton, Va. They had: a. Mary Nelson, born 1908; b. Cornelia Taylor, born 1912; Julian Minor Quarles, Jr., born 1917. Judge Quarles died in 1929; his family lives in Miami, Fla. [incorrect--they remained in Staunton but spent some winters in Miami, but Julian Quarles Jr. lived in Miami most of his adult life].

 

In 1883 Cornelius T. Taylor, then a widower, married Charlotte Custis Poulson, of the Onancock section, where they had: Robert James Taylor, who spent his young manhood in Onancock, married Helen Stinson,  had two children, and lives in Baltimore; and Catherine Custis Taylor, who married Edward J. Goffigon of Cape Charles. She died in 1930 and her husband about 1935. No issue.

 

Cornelius T. Taylor was postmaster at Pungoteague from 1863 to 1867. That was part of the period when the entire Eastern Shore of Virginia was occupied by Federal troops, and those holding office, Federal and local, were those who had taken the oath of allegiance to the United States government and to the government of the reorganized (Union) State of Virginia. In the National Archives in Washington preserved is some of the correspondence of General Henry H. Lockwood, who commanded the U.S. troops in Accomack and Northampton between the middle of November, 1861, and early December, 1863, with the exception of a few months in 1863, when he was assigned to other areas on a temporary basis. Below are excerpts of a letter of General Lockwood:

 

"During my temporary absence from this command at the Battle of Gettysburg and subsequently at Harper's Ferry influences were brought to bear on the Post Office Department whereby certain appointments were made in Accomack County, Va., highly prejudicial to the public interest.

"Assuming that no one should hold office under the Government whose political status is at all doubtful, I respectfully represent that the post offices at Metompkin and Pungoteague are held by persons against whom the strongest suspicion of loyalty exists. I regarded Mr. Taylor at Pungoteague so deeply implicated in attempts to run the blockade that I caused his store house to be closed a year ago. With respect to this person I refer to a letter to the Post Office Department, dated _____, Harper's Ferry. ..... I, therefore, respectfully suggest that the office at Pungoteague be for the present discontinued and that at Metompkin be removed to Newstown and Henry T. White appointed Post Master in place of James Hickman, now of Metompkin, who should be removed."

 

Soon thereafter General Lockwood was transferred elsewhere. Obviously no action was taken as to Mr. Taylor, as he continued to serve until in 186

 

The Jollys Neck farm, mentioned in the book, was in the Jenkins Bridge area, and not near Onancock.

 

His daughter Cornelia, who married Judge Julian Minor Quarles of Staunton, was, as this was written in June, 1963, living in Staunton with her daughter Cornelia, wife of Circuit Judge William S. Moffett, Jr. Judge and Mrs. Moffett had, as reported in 1940, William Stuart III and Frances C. Moffett (and later Julian Minor Quarles Moffett).

 

Cornelius T. Taylor's second wife, Charlotte Custis Poulson, daughter of Edward J. Poulson, died in 1929, aged 79.

 

This ends the quoted information from Mr. Mears. Of his ten children by his first marriage, the only child of "Uncle Neal Taylor" who survived to a ripe age and begat offspring was his daughter Ida "Cornelia" Taylor (1872-1964), who in 1908 married Judge Julian Minor Quarles (1848-1929) of Staunton, Virginia, a native of Caroline County, Virginia. Prior to becoming an Augusta County judge, Quarles was a lawyer and had served a term in the U.S. Congress in 1879. Around 1898 he made a speech in front of Congress regarding the issue of trade with Puerto Rico. In 1901, he was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention which rewrote the Virginia Constitution. Cornelia and Judge Quarles had three children, Mary Nelson Quarles (1908-1992), who became a schoolteacher/ librarian and married Major James LaMar Whitehurst (1910-1966), a native of Valdosta, Georgia who was career U.S. Army; Cornelia Taylor Quarles (1912-2001) who became an elementary school teacher and married Judge William Stuart Moffett, Jr. (1910-2002) of Staunton, and Colonel Julian Minor Quarles, Jr. (1917-     ) who became a lawyer and ultimately a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves and married Rhoda Morris Daniels (1924-      ) (divorced 1994). Julian Minor Quarles, Sr. is buried beside his first wife, Cornelia Stout (1847-1903), in Staunton's Thornrose Cemetery, while Cornelia Taylor Quarles is buried at Bethel Presbyterian Church in Augusta County beside Judge Quarles' mother, Mary Elizabeth Waddy Quarles (1807-1891). Col. Julian M. Quarles, Jr. will also be buried at Bethel. Mary Nelson and her husband, Jim Whitehurst, are buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

 

In 1997, after finding a book by Garland Redd Quarles on the descendants of William Quarles of Caroline County, the great-grandfather of Judge Julian Minor Quarles, I was able to track down Judge Quarles' second daughter, Mrs. Moffett, upon learning who she married, and I called her in July, 1997. At that time I was living temporarily in Austin, Texas, and I made tentative arrangements to get back with her after moving back to Virginia in 1998. I mainly called her because I knew very little about the Taylor side of my family at that time, including the siblings of my great-great-great-grandmother, Susan Ann Taylor Kellam (1824-1873), the eldest sister of Mrs. Moffett's grandfather, Cornelius Thorogood Taylor (1835-1888). A year later, after I wrote to Mrs. Moffett and sent her a packet of information, her brother, Col. Julian M. Quarles, Jr.,  wrote me back in August, 1998 as he was preparing to retire from his law practice in Miami, Florida at the age of 80 and move back to his birthplace in the Valley of Virginia to become a resident of the Sunnyside Presbyterian Retirement Community at Harrisonburg. Since that time I have greatly benefitted from corresponding with and visiting Colonel Quarles and his family. His first letter to me, which gives some useful information on his family and on our mutual Uncles David and Edgar Taylor, is as follows:

 

 

410 Malaga Ave., #1

                                     Coral Gables, FL 33134

                                     5 August 1998

 

Dear Cousin:

I am pleased to address you as Cousin. It is always a pleasure to find a relative, no matter how distant.

I visited my sister, Cornelia Moffett, in May and made a copy of your March letter to her. As she does not communicate as much as she did when younger, I wanted to write to you.

I am busy preparing to move to Harrisonburg, Virginia and am awaiting the renovation of an apartment at the Presbyterian Retirement Community there called Sunnyside. Therefore I have a lot of old papers which I am perusing and filing in preparation for the move.

I am writing to your address in Austin as I know that it will be forwarded. During WWII, I was in the 143rd Infantry (not Rangers) of the 36th Division. The Division is holding its 73rd Annual Reunion in Austin over the Labor Day weekend. I have plane tickets and expect to be there.

You were requesting information about a book on the Eastern Shore. I am enclosing the first four pages of a Lineage Claim in the Order of the Crown of Charlemagne that was filed by my sister, Cornelia. These pages contain a list of a number of books that may help you. My sister, Mary Nelson, was a skilled librarian who was very successful in research on family history. She died in 1992. The claim that is enclosed traces my grandmother, Mary Frances Miller's heritage to Charlemagne, King of the Franks, Emperor of the West, who was born in 742 AD and died in 813/814.

Enclosed is a photocopy of a picture of Great Uncle Edgar (Taylor) together with a photocopy of what I had placed on the back of the picture frame. I well remember the pleasant visits that I made with my mother to his beautiful home. In the mid-twenties when we travelled to Miami in the winter, he would meet us at the train station in Richmond in his chauffeur-driven car. You have referred to him as Colonel which I had never heard before. He was the same age as my father and too young to have been in the War of Northern Aggression, as I call it. I do know that he was active with the veterans of that war. Unfortunately, something happened to his financial status at the time of his death. Apparently, there was not enough funds to erect a monument. You may have already discovered this. The people at Hollywood Cemetery can show you exactly where he is buried but the only monuments there are those for his two wives. In 1928 my father was not well and my mother did not go to Richmond. Travel in those days was not  as simple as it is today and my family had suffered severe financial reverses as a result of the Florida boom and bust before the 1929 crash.

My mother's mother referred to above died when she was ten years old and as a consequence she spent most of her time until maturity with her Uncle David B(ayly) Taylor whose only child, Maysie, was her age. Maysie and her husband, Emmett McClintic, an electrical engineer, moved to Miami in 1917. They had no children and when she died before my mother she left her estate to my mother. I have a Confederate army "Descriptive List of Pay and Clothing of David B. Taylor" dated Nov. 7, 1864. It shows Private, age 24, blue eyes, light hair, light complexion, 5'6", home Accomac County, Va., occupation clerk, enlisted July 4, 1861, pay $50.00, has pay due for use and risk of horse since December, 1863. (It lists articles of clothing issued). Signed by 1st Sergeant of Company I, 15th Virginia Cavalry. He appeared to have attended every Confederate reunion until his death as at one time I had a small box that was full of medals which veterans received when they attended the annual reunions in all the major cities in the South.

I envy you with your computer and expect to set one up when I move to Virginia. I did not expect this letter to be so long.

I hope to meet you at some time.

 

                                     Sincerely,

 

                                     Julian M. Quarles, Jr.

The following is quoted from "A History of the Ancestors and Descendants of William Quarles of St. Margaret's Parish, Caroline County Whose Will Was Proved July 14, 1817 and Sundry Allied Families" (1982) by Garland Redd Quarles, pages 52-55:

 

Col. Julian Minor Quarles, Jr.--Graduated at Augusta Military Academy and at the University of Miami Florida. Doctor of Jurisprudence--The University of Miami. Married Rhoda Daniels. Children: Mary Nelson Quarles, Julian Minor Quarles III, who married Alice Fatool, William Daniels Quarles, and Stephen Paul Quarles. During World War II Julian Minor Quarles Jr. served with distinction with the Texas Rangers 143rd Infantry Division and was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, and Oak Leaf Cluster. He entered the service as a First Lieutenant, was promoted to Captain during the Italian Campaign and is now a full Colonel Retired in the United States Army.

 

Following are two citations received by him, the first on the occasion of his award of the Silver Star and the second the award of the Oak Leaf Cluster:

 

"Julian M. Quarles, Captain (then First Lieutenant, 143rd Infantry Regiment, for gallantry in action on 13 September 1943 in the vicinity of _______ Italy. Lieutenant Quarles, executive officer of an infantry company, undertook to maintain all around defense when his men were cut off from the rest of the company by a strong enemy tank attack penetrating from the rear. Moving fearlessly among his men during an intense concentration from which their bazookas and small arms could be used most effectively against the formidable tanks. Alhough surrounded and outnumbered by the heavily armed enemy, with magnificent courage and exemplary coolness under fire, he inspired the defense of the position at close range, personally killing three of the enemy before being overwhelmed and captured. Lieutenant Quarles' aggressive leadership and fierce determination materially aided in retarding the enemy advance and in its ultimate repulsion. Later he again displayed his outstanding daring and alertness by escaping from his guards and successfully making his way through the enemy lines back to his unit. "

 

"Julian M. Quarles, Captain (then First Lieutenant), for gallantry in action on December 9, 1943 in the vicinity of Salerno, Italy. Lieutenant Quarles was executive officer of Company F during the vicious attack against the well-prepared and defended enemy positions on the southern slopes of ________. On his own initiative, Lieutenant Quarles organized a platoon from elements of several platoons and fearlessly led them in the face of heavy small arms, grenade, and mortar fire against the enemy positions. Over exposed, heavily mined terrain, he led his men to a rock wall and, in spite of withering machine gun fire which was brought on them, attacked on over the wall. He was wounded by a hand grenade, but disregarding his wound, he pressed the attack onward until the resistance became so great that it was necessary to take positions affording more cover. Carefully organizing the platoon positions, he then, despite the continued intense fire, crawled over the wall with two other men to give aid and evacuate a wounded soldier who lay 75 yards beyond the wall. With enemy shells bursting about him, he carried the wounded man back to safety. His outstanding display of audacious courage and aggressiveness were a great inspiration to his command. His gallant actions reflect great credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of the United States."

 

Ret. Col. Quarles now lives and practices law in South Miami, Florida.

 

The story of Lieutenant Quarles's escape, to which reference is made in the first citation quoted, was printed in the March 21, 1944 issue of Look Magazine. Captain Carl R. Bayne and Lieutenant Quarles were captured by the Germans in the bitter battle of Salerno Italy. After spending two days in a German prison pen they were placed on board a prison train bound for Germany. The lock on the door of the baggage car in which Bayne and Quarles were crowded was defective, a condition which they noted. After the train started, pitching out of the door their canteens and putting a small piece of German bread in their pockets, first Quarles and then Bayne jumped out into the darkness. They were shaken up but not injured. After the train had disappeared they returned to the tracks and walked southward, coming at length to a highway which proved to be the road to Rome. They heard trucks approaching and hid in the ditch. Later they decided to take to the fields. Just before dawn they walked through a thicket down to the Puciano River and waded across, then crawling exhausted into a thicket. Here they rested and slept until another night came when they set off again through the rough countryside. For thirty-three days they were sustained in the mountains and thickets with native help until they were able to return to their outfits. *****************************************

 

Because of our mutual interest in family and Civil War history, I have enjoyed the many newspaper clippings and e-mails Colonel Quarles has sent me concerning the Shenandoah Valley's Civil War heritage and our own family's role in that and other wars.  He has also travelled back to Italy to the exact locations where he stayed during the war. Now 84 years old, Colonel Quarles continues an active lifestyle in the Presbyterian home. He is a member of the Sons of the American Revolution and also attends meetings of the Civil War Roundtable. In addition to travelling to Army reunions, he travels often to Staunton to visit his sister and brother-in-law and to Florida and Oklahoma to visit his children.

 

In early 1999, I visited Colonel Quarles in Harrisonburg for the first time, and his great-nephew, Mrs. Moffett's grandson Fayette Quarles Thackston  and his wife Lindy, met me there. At that time Fayette was working as a pharmaceutical salesman and made sales calls to the Eastern Shore at least once a month and had contacted me to find out the locations of the graves of some of our Taylor ancestors there. His wife was also expecting their first child, and he was interested in continuing his family's tradition of giving family surnames to children. Several weeks later, their daughter was born, and she was named Margaret Taylor Thackston and called Taylor. Although  Margaret Dalby Taylor was the closest common ancestor of her and myself, her first name was for someone in her mother's family and her middle name was carried down from our mutual Taylor family connection. Several months afterward, in June, 1999, I met Colonel Quarles near Staunton at "Annandale," the spacious home of Judge and Mrs. Moffett, who were also very gracious to me, and then I was taken on a tour of Staunton by the Colonel. Judge and Mrs. Moffett's large brick home is within sight of Interstate 81, between Route 11 and the interstate, about two miles south of where I-81 and I-64 split off. Because of their advanced ages and declining health, Judge and Mrs. Moffett's second son, Julian Minor Quarles Moffett and his wife Ellen Loving Moffett, now live with them. [Update: Mrs. Moffett passed away on October 21, 2001 at age 88 and Judge Moffett passed away August 16, 2002 at age 91].

Montgomery 02 Oct 1872 in Augusta Co., VA?, daughter of William Wallace Montgomery.  She was born 01 Oct 1850 in probably Deerfield, Augusta Co., VA21, and died 10 Aug 1923 in Staunton, VA21.

 

Notes for David Bayley Taylor:

The follwing is quoted from "Biographical Cyclopedia," a large volume on notable Maryland residents, which must have been written before 1882:

 

Taylor, David Bayley, third son of David C. and Margaret S. (Dalby) Taylor, was born in Accomac County, Virginia, February 8, 1840 (correction by Bryan S. Godfrey: according to the 1850 census, he was born in Richmond County, Virginia, whereas the rest of his siblings were born in Accomack). His father was of Scotch birth, and was brought to this country when an infant by his parents, who settled in Virginia (incorrect). His mother was of Irish descent, and was born soon after the arrival of her parents in this country (also incorrect). David C. Taylor was a man of noble, generous disposition, which his abundant means permitted him freely to indulge. He was a successful merchant and speculator, owning several vessels in the West India trade, and prospered in all that he undertook. He died of pneumonia, in 1855, and his estate was largely dissipated. His wife followed him in 1863. Their son, David B., was educated at OId Margaret Academy, in Accomac County, and was greatly favored in having for his preceptor an Irishman of remarkable ability in his vocation and of superior education. Leaving school at the age of fifteen, Mr. Taylor was engaged as a clerk in Norfolk, Virginia, till the commencement of the war. He then enlisted in Company I, of the Chesapeake Cavalry, under Captain Simpson, and during the whole four years struggle was engaged in constant, active duty with the Army of Northern Virginia, coming out without a wound, but with health badly shattered, and with an empty pocket. He has never fully recovered his health. On leaving the army he entered the wholesale house of John W. Bruff & Company, Baltimore, remaining with them twelve months, after which he entered a hardware store, in which he had the promise of an interest, but at the end of two years his health completely gave way, and he went to the Valley of Virginia to receive medical treatment, and for the benefit of the mineral waters. Receiving great benefit he remained and opened a store for general mercantile business, which he successfully conducted for seven years. On the 2nd of October, 1872, he was united in marriage with Agnes H., daughter of William Wallace and E.C. Montgomery, of Deerfield, Augusta County, Virginia. They have one child, a daughter, Mazie Glendy. In April, 1875, Mr. Taylor brought his family to Baltimore, and bought out the old-established house of A.H. Reiss, wholesale tinware dealer, 335 West Baltimore Street, forming a copartnership with Mr. James C. Chadwick, under the firm name of Taylor, Chadwick, & Co., manufacturers and dealers in tinware, stoves, and hollow-ware. They removed, in 1876, to No. 14 South Howard Street, where they continued to prosper. The following year Mr. Taylor bought out his partner, and the business has since been conducted under the firm name of David B. Taylor & Co., and enjoys, notwithstanding the hard times, a largely increasing trade. Mr. Taylor is a thorough gentleman, a man everywhere liked and esteemed. His wife, a lady of strong and decided Christian principle, and his daughter, are also favorites among all their acquaintances. Mr. Taylor has three brothers living, viz., Dr. William C. Taylor, with Canby, Gilpin & Co., Baltimore, wholesale druggists; Cornelius T. Taylor, of Sneeringer, Taylor, & Co., wholesale tobacco; and Edgar D. Taylor, of R.W. Powers & Co., Richmond, Va. These are all who are now living out of a family of nine childre

 

There are two errors in the above with regard to Uncle David's family background. First, both of his parents were born on the Eastern Shore, and the records prove that both the Taylors and Dalbys had lived on the Shore since the 1600's. Perhaps one or both of them, more likely the Dalbys/Dolbys, were originally of Irish or Scottish origin. Since Uncle David was living when this book was written and should have known about his immediate family's background, it is a puzzle as to how such erroneous information was put in this biography.

 

The following is David's obituary quoted from Volume XX of "Confederate Veteran" magazine, page 33 (1912):

 

                                      DAVID BAYLEY TAYLOR

Suddenly yet quietly ended the beautiful life of David Bayley Taylor on April 24, 1911, at his home, in Staunton, Va., at the age of seventy-three. He was reared in Accomac County and educated at Margaret Academy, at that time one of the best schools of the State. In 1855 he went into the mercantile business in Norfolk, Va., and there became a member of the Norfolk Blues, with which he did some service at Harper's Ferry during the "John Brown Raid" in 1859. He was one of the first of Virginians to respond to the call of his State for volunteers, and in May, 1861, he joined the Chesapeake Cavalry, under Captain Simpson, in the 5th Virginia Cavalry. He was active and efficient in the command except during a few months' confinement with typhoid fever in Chimborazo Hospital, Richmond. While convalescing he was assistant to Captain Presmore in Lexington, Va., as enrolling officer. He was in many severe battles. He was paroled June 15, 1865.

Soon after the war he went to Baltimore, where he engaged in the wholesale dry goods business until the destructive fire there in 1904. Failing health caused him to seek a home in the Valley of Virginia, and in 1905 he located in Staunton. He is survived by his wife, who was Miss Agnes Montgomery, of Virginia, and one daughter.

Comrade Taylor was indeed a true type of the "old Virginia gentleman," with sweetness of temper, genial disposition, readiness to help, and unwillingness to think or speak evil of any that so characterizes those in which the spirit of Christian charity has been developed.

Comrade Taylor was a charter member of the Army and Navy Society of the Confederate States in the State of Maryland. So ardent was his love for the Confederate cause that he had a memorial window (a St. Andrew's cross) of red and white placed in the hall, where were also his trophies and pictures of the Civil War. In that "Confederate corner" reposed his body, clad in gray, until borne by his comrades of Stonewall Camp to its last resting place in beautiful Thornrose Cemetery.
