51 C. C. II died from injuries received after being struck by a locomotive. He was walking home from Little Rock via the Missouri Pacific railroad tracks when struck from behind. It is reported that he was at first in the clear track of the double track line. As the train approached from Little Rock the engineer blew a warning whistle which apparently caused him to think he was in harms way - whereupon he stepped over the rails and into the path of the train.  Stuckey, Christopher Columbus II (I0406)

57 Columbus shot his brother Pete, in a dispute over a dollar while playing poker. He first thought to shoot him in the head, but decided that he only wanted to hurt him so he shot him in the leg instead. Since Pete was shot in the leg, he was unable to walk... Columbus carried him on his shoulder to the hospital.
Columbus and Forsee had a general store called 'Forsee and Stuckey Food Market' located on Beech Street in Pine Haven east of B&N Railroad. The store was sold to Steed Huggins, and was later converted to a residence now located at 3522 Edison Avenue, in Benton.

Notes for David Ross Houston:

resided Williamson CO., TN

Sarah Houston is sister of Gov. George Smith Houston of AL

ref: The Governors of Alabama

a planter, resided Greene Co., GA

"David and Hannah (Reagan) Houston, natives of Ireland, came to Lauderdale County in 1813 and settled on their plantation about 13 miles west of Florence on the Waterloo Road, near Gravelly Springs, and adjoining the old Natchez Trace. They had lived in Tennessee until they moved here with their thirteen children. Their home was a large, three-story brick structure built along the typical ante-bellum lines. A huge water tank, located on the roof, caught rain water and furnished the household with running water. This home burned sometime before 1900.

"The Houston cemetery, some signs of the old brick foundations of the mansion, and remains of the once elegant garden house are the only signs today of the old home, the boyhood home of the onetime Governor and U.S. Senator, George S. Houston, one of the thirteen children.

"The Houston land supposedly exended from Gravelly Springs to the Tennessee River where they had a boat landing."

Notes for Hannah Pugh Reagan:

Welsh, Quaker. " ... a connection of the Pugh family of Ohio." May have been born in Frederick Co., VA. "She was a remarkable woman for her day and the advantages which she enjoyed."

Her reported birthdate is after the marriage of her presumed mother to Thomas Reagan. However, her mother is also reported to have had a daughter, Hannah Reagan, in 1795, resulting in bewilderment for those who rarely hear of two surviving children with the same Christian name. The stories recounting that her father was Reason Reagan may be in error, but it seems likely that she is of the same Pugh and Reagan families that were in Newberry Co., SC at the same time, so the identity of her grandparents are probably not in dispute.

Children of David Houston and Hannah Reagan are:

35 i. Jane3 Houston, born Abt. 1797; died Abt. 1873. She married Gen. Phillip Jacob Irion 14 Aug 1838 in Lauderdale Co., AL; born 25 Nov 1796 in NC; died 25 Mar 1879 in Gravelly Springs, Lauderdale, AL.

Notes for Mary Houston:

An old record say that she was "posses with a high order of intellectual endowments, and afforded educational and social advantages suitable thereto, she became noted in her early womanhood for excellence in the attainments of a liberal education in general literature, arts and history."

The same record says, "During the life of her distinguished brother, Hon. George S. Houston, as a member of Congress, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, Governor of Alabama, later U.S. Senator, she spent much time in our state and national capitals. She thus occupied prominent places in the social life of those great centers, becoming meanwhile an ardent and apt student of political history, state and national."

100 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.
