Notes for A

From Mrs. Henry Luebbert we have the following additional information and anecdote. She was the manager of Western Union Telegraph Office in Newman, GA. for 31 years. When she resigned she was the first person ever given a pension by the company. Anecdote: The Peddy family still tells the story of Aunt Lizzie Havis, who as a girl had a pet squirrel. One preaching day, the pet unknowingly slipped into a coat pocket and went to church with her. With the preacher "getting hot" in the middle of his sermon, a tear trickled down her cheek and she reached into her pocket for a handkerchief. The squirrel bit her finger and she yelled. "That's all right sister" said the preacher, "shout if you want to."-taken from "Yesterdays in Loachapoka" by Alexander Nunn.

Notes for J
James Champion Hays was born in GA in 1845. Currently, not much is known about his personal life. He married Julia Ann Dobbs in Hamilton, GA the county seat for Harris Co.. The author has been to the court house in Harris county and attained a copy of James and Julia's marriage certificate. The town is located 16 miles north of Columbus, GA. This is a rural area with beautiful trees and rolling hills. An interesting tidbit, this area is the birthplace of Franklyn D. Roosevelt. There is a State park in the area named after the president.
It is assumed James met Julia Ann Dobbs in the Harris County area. We know Julia was born and raised in Harris Co. The 1850 and 1860 shows Samuel Dobbs as the father of six children, all females. Julia Ann was the fifth born of these children. No records have been found to verify where James lived as a child but it is assumed he came or returned to Harris Co. from the Civil war and met Julia there.
Sometime after their marriage and before their first born child James and Julia moved to AL. The 1900 Bowie Co. TX records verify or imply they lived in AL at least from 1867 through 1874 because the first three of their five children were born in AL.
Sometime around 1877 James and Julia were on the move again. This time they moved to TX. The 1880 Jack Co. census records shows James, Julia, James V, Emma, Mary and Cora Hays. Nothing is known about there time there however it is assumed James was farming there since he is listed on the census as a Farmer. Sometime before Ida Lee was born the Hays' moved again to Bowie Co. TX. They moved about 2 1/2 miles southwest of New Boston, TX. Their last two children were born in Dekalb, TX. James and Julia continued to live in New Boston until their deaths.
James was a member of a Society named Woodsman of the World. The Woodsman was actually an insurance company. James was a member of Unit 47 TX, policy # 13082. Members or policyholders were entitled to a tombstone in the shape of a tree stump. The Woodman's started furnishing the special tombstones as part of the settlement of the insurance policy when the Society began in 1870. This benefit continued up until the early 1900's. Woodman's decided to change this benefit because the cost of transporting the stones all over the United States became too expensive. They decided to pay an extra premium to the policyholder instead of providing the tombstones.
From family information the author knew James was buried in The Woodsman Cemetery located in Dekalb, TX. The cemetery has a large entrance gate with the name of the cemetery running over the top of the entrance. In 1990 my son, Mother and I went to the cemetery to locate the grave site. Jeremy was told to look for the name of James Champion Hays or James C. Hays. We separated and began looking for the grave site. Within minutes Jeremy yelled out "I think I found it". Actually what he had found was the tombstone of Julia Ann Dobbs wife of James C. Hays. Next to Julia's tombstone was a tombstone that had toppled from its footing and was laying face down on the ground. The tombstone is almost six feet tall and was so heavy we were unable to turn over the stone. I decided to dig a small trench along side of the stone and rolled the stone over into the trench. As the stone rolled over I was able to read the inscription. The inscription reads " J. C. Hays a loving husband, a father dear, a faithful friend lie buried here". The tombstone was furnished by the Woodman of the World. One of the unusual things about James's stone besides being much larger than other Woodsman's stones is the bronze plaque in the center of the tombstone. This plaque contains the seal of the Woodsman of the World. On the top tombstone is a crossed mallet and hatchet on the top of the stone. Above the plaque is a dove with an olive branch. The bottom of the stone is lined with fern branches. The stone is white marble. Of all the Woodsman stones I have seen this is by far the most beautiful. Because the stone had been lying on the ground for many years it was stained and had oak mold growing on it. With the help of other family members I contracted with a local company to upright the stone on a concrete base and sandblast both James and Julia's tombstones.
