117 EDMOND N. CAMP, a leading fruit grower of this region, is a grandson of
Abner and Mary (Reynolds) Camp, the former a soldier in the war of 1812,
who about 1825 brought his family from North Carolina to Coweta county,
Ga., among them his three-year-old son, Abner, Jr. The latter was reared
on the farm, and in time married Miss Nancy Holland, whose parents,
Abraham and Nancy (Underwood) Holland were of South Carolinian birth, her
father also having served in the war of 1812. Edmond N., the son of Abner
and Nancy, was born in this county in 1851, and received such education
as was to be obtained in the country schools. In 1872 he married Miss
Orlean Rollins, who was born in Heard county in 1851, and is the
daughter of James and Elizabeth (Houston) Rollins. They have ten
children: James, Andrew, Fred, Wayman, Hugh, Pauline, Lee, Frank,
Victoria and Ralph. The parents are both members of the Methodist
Episcopal church. When on reaching manhood Mr. Camp started in life
for himself he worked for some years as a mechanic at the carpenter's
trade, at wagon making, etc. But he seemed to have a natural fondness
for horticulture, and in 1886 he devoted himself wholly to this, with
an enthusiasm which could not fail of success. He is recognized
throughout this region as the largest and most successful fruit
grower in the state. He now has fifty acres of fine grapes and
thirty of peaches, several devoted to pears and strawberries, has
five acres of quinces and a number in apples. He may well regard
with pride his achievements.

119 Edward the Elder, King of England

Edward the Elder (Old English: Eadweard cyning; c. 874?877 ? 17 July 924) was an English king. He became king in 899 upon the death of his father, Alfred the Great. His court was at Winchester, previously the capital of Wessex. He captured the eastern Midlands and East Anglia from the Danes in 917 and became ruler of Mercia in 918 upon the death of ?thelfl?d, his sister.

All but two of his charters give his title as "Anglorum Saxonum rex" or "king of the Anglo-Saxons".

Elder, Edward the (I9398)
120 Egbert (771/775?839), also known as Ecgberht, Ecgbert, or Ecgbriht, was King of Wessex from 802 until his death in 839. His father was Ealhmund of Kent. In the 780s Egbert was forced into exile by Offa of Mercia and Beorhtric of Wessex, but on Beorhtric's death in 802 Egbert returned and took the throne.

Little is known of the first 20 years of Egbert's reign, but it is thought that he was able to maintain the independence of Wessex against the kingdom of Mercia, which at that time dominated the other southern English kingdoms. In 825 Egbert defeated Beornwulf of Mercia, ended Mercia's supremacy at the Battle of Ellandun, and proceeded to take control of the Mercian dependencies in southeastern England. In 829 Egbert defeated Wiglaf of Mercia and drove him out of his kingdom, temporarily ruling Mercia directly. Later that year Egbert received the submission of the Northumbrian king at Dore. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle subsequently described Egbert as a bretwalda, or "Ruler of Britain".

Egbert was unable to maintain this dominant position, and within a year Wiglaf regained the throne of Mercia. However, Wessex did retain control of Kent, Sussex, and Surrey; these territories were given to Egbert's son ?thelwulf to rule as a subking under Egbert. When Egbert died in 839, ?thelwulf succeeded him; the southeastern kingdoms were finally absorbed into the kingdom of Wessex after ?thelwulf's death in 858.

Egbert (Ecgberht in Anglo Saxon) king of Wessex (802-39), and the first Saxon king recognized as sovereign of all England . He was the son of a Kentish noble but claimed descent from Cerdic (reigned 519-34), founder of Wessex, the kingdom of the West Saxons in southern England. During the late 8th century, when King Offa of Mercia (reigned 757-96) ruled most of England, Egbert lived in exile at the court of Charlemagne. Egbert regained his kingdom in 802. He conquered the neighboring kingdoms of Kent, Cornwall, and Mercia, and by 830 he was also acknowledged as sovereign of East Anglia, Sussex, Surrey, and Northumbria and was given the title of Bretwalda (Anglo-Saxon, "ruler of the British"). During following years Egbert led expeditions against the Welsh and the Vikings. The year before his death he defeated a combined force of Danes and Cornish at Hingston Down in Cornwall. He was succeeded by his son Aethelwulf, the father of Alfred.

King Ecbert is the worldly and ambitious king of Wessex, whose formative years were spent in the court of the Emperor Charlemagne. An ambitious man of strength, knowledge and the willingness to use those qualities decisively, King Ecbert poses a worthy match for his new foe, Ragnar Lothbrok.
Unlike many of his fellow Christians in Wessex, Ecbert possesses an understanding of a pagan culture like the Vikings, mainly as a result of his fascination with the Romans and their world-view prior to their Christianization. Ecbert appreciates that the Roman gods allowed them rule the world and grasps the implications of that notion. He takes Athelstan into his confidence, sensing that men like his son, the devout Prince Aethelwulf, and his advisor, the Bishop Edmund, would disapprove of his interest in pagan religions and culture.

Having saved Athelstan from a cross - the monk having been crucified for apostasy - Ecbert regards Athelstan as a kindred spirit, and one versed in Latin. The king puts the monk in charge of his treasury of ancient Roman relics and documents left over from Rome's domination of Britain centuries prior. Athelstan is tasked with interpreting and preserving the many scrolls of Roman parchment. From the scrolls, Athelstan conveys to Ecbert detailed accounts of the battlefield strategies of the Roman legions.

Having delved into the military mind of Caesar, King Ecbert puts his new knowledge to use when confronting the latest incursion - the largest to date - by Ragnar Lothbrok into Wessex, this raid including the forces of King Horik and Lagertha. Allied with King Aella of Northumbria, Ecbert ambushes the advancing Viking horde with a multiple-pronged attack that includes both mounted cavalry and infantry. Confounded by Ecbert's tactics, taking heavy losses, and assailed from all sides, the Vikings are forced to fight their way out of the trap and into headlong retreat. King Ecbert's victory is decisive. In the aftermath of the battle, King Aella expresses surprise at Ecbert's skill as a tactician.

When Aella suggests finishing off the Northmen, however, Ecbert demonstrates his keener political vision, responding that more might be gained by negotiating a truce. Additionally, upon realizing that Ragnar's brother, Rollo, had been wounded and captured during the battle, Ecbert had his life spared and his wounds tended to. Rollo, he realized, was an important and potentially useful captive. Rollo's release is part of the deal later struck between Ecbert and Ragnar that granted the Northmen 5,000 acres of good farming land, as well as a quantity of gold and silver. King Ecbert, in turn, is able to recruit a contingent of Viking warriors willing to fight as mercenaries for Princess Kwentrith in her campaign to rule the kingdom of Mercia.

Trivia Edit
Ecbert's name was alternately spelled as Egbert, Ecgbert, Ecgberht or Ecgbriht.
King Ecbert of Wessex was a decendant of Cerdic I, a Saxon conquerer that founded Wessex. According to legend, and also asserted in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, Cerdic was a decendant of Woden, the Saxon name of Odin. Although the same Anglo-Saxon Chronicle also traces the pedigree of the House of Wessex to the Biblical Patriarchs, and so may be an example of a fabricated lineage.
Ecbert was named as the Bretwalda (ruler of Britain) in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle after he conquered the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia from King Wiglaf and received homage from the Northumbrians.
Though the series depicts Ecbert as king of Wessex in the approximate year 800 AD, Ecbert was not crowned until 802 AD.
In the "Anglo-Saxon Chronicle" created during the reign of Alfred the Great, King Ecgbert of Wessex was said to have had three children with his wife Redburga; ?thelwulf, Saint Eadgyth of Polesworth, and ?thelstan. Later historians decided that ?thelstan was ?thelwulf's oldest son, rather than his brother.
In 825 AD, King Ecbert accepted the submission of King Sigered of Essex (the East Saxons) and annexed the entire kingdom (composed of the modern English counties of Essex, Hertfordshire and Middlesex), adding them to the growing Kingdom of Wessex. This was in the same year that Ecbert had reconquered the Kingdom of Kent, which he had one been the heir to before his father, Ealhmund, was killed by his Mercian rivals in 784 AD.
Ecbert was the grandfather of King Alfred the Great, who led the native English resistance against the Danes after they conquered the kingdoms of Northumbria, East Anglia and northern Mercia.
Ecbert and his fellow king, Aella of Northumbria, never met in real life and were not even comtemporaries. Ecbert reigned from 802-839 AD, while Aella is believed to have died around the year 867 AD and was only king of Northumbria for several years at that. The real-life contemporary king of Northumbria for Ecbert of Wessex in the year 800 AD (the setting of Season 2) would have been King Eardwulf (reigned 796-806 AD).
Ecbert's father was King Ealhmund of Kent, who was himself the great-grandson of one Ingild, a brother of King Ine of Wessex (reigned 688-726 AD). Ecbert, heir to the throne of Kent and possessing a claim to the throne of Wessex, was forced into exile to Francia after the death of his father. His rival, Beorhtric, gained the support of the powerful King Offa of Mercia to seize the throne of Wessex in 786 AD, while Mercia asserted it's dominion over Kent. Ecbert would eventually be restored as King over Wessex and Kent with the aid from the Frankish Emperor Charlemagne.

Ecgbert III, King of Wessex & England from 802 to 839
Born about 775
Died on February 4, 839 and interred at Winchester Cathedral, England
Ecgbert reigned from 802 to 839. In 800 at the decline of the power of King Brithric (786 - 802), Egbert was called by the voice of his countrymen to assume the Government of Wessex, and he subsequently succeeded in reducing all the Kingdoms of the Heptarchy under his sway. His reign, a long and glorious one, is memorable for the great victories he achieved over the Danes.

Ecgbert married to Redburga (also R?dburh) about whom little is known.
Redburga is referred to as a "sister of the Frankish King" (George Andrews Moriarty: The Plantagenet Ancestry of King Edward III and Queen Philippa, Salt Lake City, 1985, page 16) However, this is unlikely because at the time of their marriage, Ecgbert was an Under-King of a small part of what is now England. There would have been a huge gap in status between Ecgbert's family and that of the rulers of Western Europe. Perhaps she was an illegitimate relative of Charlemagne.

Ecgbert and Redburga had the following children:

Editha, Abbess of Polesworth
Athelstan, Sub King of Kent 
England, Ecgbert III King of (I9404)

128 Following is an email message I received from Percy Smith on May 28, 2000 about Helen Houston and also his life in the U. S. Air Force:
(J. Dean Moore)

Colonel Percy C. Smith, USAF

Hi Dean,
I know there is some controversy between me and Haynes on this, but I
believe she was named Helen Sarah Houston, born Sept 6, 1870 and died April
12, 1929 and buried in Vaiden, MS. Her son, Preston gave the info for the
death certicate and I have just received an old address book of my mother's
and on the first page, she gives this same info. I can remember very well
when she died in Sidon, MS while visiting another son, Thomas Clifford, and
going to the funeral. However, Oscar and his brothers, had her buried in
Vaiden where all five of her children were born.
Yes, Dean, I got my private pilot's license in 1939 in light aircraft under
a gov't program at that time in Greenwood, MS. However, I was working in a
bank at that time making $75 per month and couldn't afford to pay to rent
one since I was dating Lela and buying a new car. Then along comes the
draft, which is the only lottery I've ever won, and left for Camp Shelby,
MS 26 Feb. 1941 in the first group to leave Greenwood. I remained at Camp
Shelby for a couple of weeks, unknown reason to me since all my buddies
left in a few days for the Army. Finally when orders came through for me,
there were seven of us that had pilot licenses and were sent to Maxwell
Field, Al. However, we weren't very welcome there as the only draftees and
most of us were assigned to the fire department to provide a full time
crash truck on the flight line. After a few months of watching the
Advanced class of Cadets in the new convertibles and realizing I wasn't
going to get back home in a year as promised, I signed up for Aviation
Cadets and was sent to Texas--Fort Worth, Randolph, and Lubbock. I
received my wings and Reserve Commission on 20 May 1942 and sent to Calif.
for further training in the old B-18 at Bakersfield Airport.
After a weekend off we spent in Hollywood, all 37 of us new pilots were
sent to Alaska where we were assigned to various units. I was assigned to
fly C-47 and flew all over the Aleutian Chain and Alaska. I was able to
get a 15 day leave in Feb 1943 and flew home and Lela and I got married.
Then in July, after most fo the action was over in Kiska and Attu, I was a
assigned back in the states as an Instructor Pilot in the C-47 and C-46 for
the duration.
After WW2 was over, I continued to fly in the Reserves at Memphis, Tenn. on
weekends while working in the Greenwood Post Office. In 1958 the Air Force
Reserve adopted the Technican program like the ANG, where a small
percentage of personnel worked as civilians during the week and Reservist
on the weekend and I was selected as the Director of Operations for the
Memphis Unit in C-123 aircraft. In 1965 the Viet Nam action caused the Air
Force to deactivate our unit so they could take our planes and I was
transferred to the Unit in Milwaukee flying the C-119 where I was promoted
to Bird Colonel and over grade in my job. They found another job for me in
the Headquarters of Air Force Reserve, effective 1 Jan 1970. So my last
time of flying as a pilot was dropping paratroopers at Fort Benning, GA in
Dec. 1969. My job for the Hdq was programming the flying hours and
justifying them to Congress budget people. I retired in Jan 1980.
My flying hours total for the period 1939-1969 were slightly over eight
thousand hours, mostly in twin engine cargo planes. There was a period in
mid fifties when I was flying jet fighters, F-84 and F-86H, which were the
most exciting. I retired at age 60 as full Colonel from AF under the
Reserve program.
When I started this I didn't know where to stop. That's not to say I don't
still have nightmares from some near misses, but not as often.

Worth, Texas, Jim made his presence felt at the Naval Academy in his varied extracurricular activities such as the Engineering Club and the Antiphonal Choir. Having spent three years at Rice, he had relatively little difficulty with his academics with one exception. Dago. But it was with quiet relief that he burned his Dago books at the end of Youngster Year and set out for better times. Jim demonstrated his Wild West talents by shooting on the riHe team. Besides being an ardent shutterbug, he was known for chasing his wives out with his record collection, mainly because there wasn ' t any space left in the room after he moved it in. In addition, Jim sjaent much of his time dragging around the Yard. His model plane collection reflects his interest in aviation, with ^which he plans to make his career. No matter what Jim takes up, his perseverance and sense of humor are sure to lead him to success. Bourn, James Sharp (I9210)
