Biography* The following is from a paper on Simeon Otis, written Feb 6, 1996 by Edie Geiger, 4621 Geiger Road, Milton, FL 32583.

"Sim" Otis, as he was sometimes known, appears to have been a native Santa Rosa Countian who lived and made his fortune primarily in his own back yard. Not much is known about his early life as this information was obtained entirely from the public records of Santa Rosa County, Florida, and the family cemetery plot in Milton Cemetery at Milton, Florida, with some "supposing" thrown in.

It is believed that his father, grandfather and a brother were all named Sylvester - leading to some confusion. Therefore, some of the following "facts" ain't necessarily so.

Sim Otis' father, Sylvester R. Otis, Jr., died in 1869 at the age of 26. He fathered at least three children - a daughter, Linnie, and two sons, Sylvester H. Otis, born circa 1862 and Simeon Otis, born circa 1868. [Warren Culpepper note: There is contradictory evidence in the Culpepper family bible, as written by Alma Elaine Payne Culpepper in the 1950's, with information gathered directly from her mother, Alma Howe Payne, daughter of Joseph R. Howe and Linnie Otis Howe. The bible shows that Linnie and Simeon were the children of Edwin H. Otis and Martha A. (Strickland). This is also supported by the 1870 and 1880 censuses.]

The public records show several instruments involving an Otis only identified as "S. Otis", leading to more confusion as "S." could be any of the Sylvesters or Simeon. One such instrument was an agreement in August of 1896 between S. Otis and Wade H. Jernigan regarding delivery of logs to Magnolia Boom located 1 1/2 miles North of Milton on Blackwater River. (It was not determined who owned the mill, nor its exact location, but it is believed that is was located on the east side of Blackwater River, just above the Navy Boat Docks as now exists.) It is supposed that this Otis was Sim and he was beginning to go into business, because at this same time he purchased from W. S. Lewis and his wife about sixty-five acres of land on Robinson Point. The Lewises reserved a parcel of land to be used as a graveyard, but did not mention anything about a mill. Simeon Otis and his wife, Frances E. Otis, deeded this same property to Otis Lumber Company the next month. In this instrument, the graveyard was lessed out, but, again, no mention of a mill.

In November, Sim Otis attended a sheriff's sale on the front steps of the courthouse and was the highest bidder on 1,280 acres of land formerly belonging to William Johnson. This land was located North and East of Milton, and Sim paid $158.45 for the entire 1,280 acres. This probably was the beginning of his acquiring land for timber purposes. The logs were branded "2" and could easily be floated down the river and bay to Robinson Point.

Two years later in August of 1898, there appears a deed in the public records from Otis Lumber Company, selling for $2,000.00 to Simeon Otis a one-third interest in 1,740 acres of land, plus an additional approximate 65 acres on Robinson Point. There was the same mention of the graveyard reserved to public use forever, plus there was now mention of a sawmill, engines, boilers, machinery and tools. Apparently Otis Lumber Company was owned by Sim Otis along with C. W. Hagerman who was identified as President, and F. B. Hagerman was Secretary. The extent of their involvement was not researched.

Also, at this same time, Otis Lumber Company sold to P. Tomasello for $4,000.00 a two-thirds interest in the same property, mill and equipment.

In addition, Otis Lumber Company agreed to sell all their pitch pine logs at the mill or in streams, to Robinson Point Lumber Company for $10,000.00. The 1,740 acres, the mill site and the equipment sold for $6,000.00 of this $10,000.00, leaving the value of the logs at $4,000.00. They also sold all the goods in the store at the mill of Otis Lumber Company at Robinson Point, Florida, for $806.80. Sim Otis was probably not out of the picture yet, as Robinson Point Lumber Company was a co-partnership composed of P. Tomasello and S. Otis. (However, this S. Otis could have been Sim's brother, Sylvester H. Otis.) The agreement also allowed Otis to store lumber at no charge until it could be removed. Robinson Point Lumber Company incorporated in 1899 according to their Charter and Notice of Incorporation.

On May 3, the following year, 1899, Simeon and Frances E. Otis sold almost all their holdings to Peter Tomasello. These holdings consisted of 1/3 undivided interest in lands (probably over 3,000 acres) and the mill, plus their 1/2 interest in Robinson Point Lumber Company. Tomasello paid $3,500.00 cash, plus assumed the debt of about $750.00 which Otis owed, which Tomasello was to satisfy. Otis even sold all his personal property except for a sailboat christened "Dewey", 2 pairs oyster tongs, 1 horse and buggy, his personal tools, effects, and household furnishings. He probably had decided to move to Mulat, because about 8 months later he purchased a parcel along the railroad track and the bayou for $100.00. The exact location of this land was not determined, but he purchased this from Warren E. Urch and Agnes Urch. Could this have been the house site?

Four months later, Sim Otis invested $4,000.00 in another parcel from Hans H. Seivers and Emma J. Seivers - the parcel identified as being the Bayou Mulatto Mill Site and included the mill and machinery, was West of the railroad. (H. H. Seivers purchased 1/3 interest in the mill for $100.00 in 1888 from Richard Duval.) At this same time, the Seivers also executed a deed to Otis for land East of the railroad. In 1877, Duvall's deed from William Judge and Martha Judge covered the whole South half of the section which was about 168 acres. Duvall only paid $400.00 for this and there was no mention of a mill. The assumption is that the mill at Mulat was built sometime between 1877 and 1888.

Sim Otis apparently prospered for the next 25 years or so, continuing in the buying and selling of property and improving the mill. There is an indication he added a shingle mill to the operation. There are numerous transactions recorded in the public records in Santa Rosa County, but it seems he held interests in other counties as well. There are many bills of sales and contracts recorded. Several of these involved Rex Robinson for cut lumber in booms at Mulat and Ferry Pass. One included some lumber identified as South American and some as Cuban lumber.

In 1900, the depot was apparently being used, as the "Depot Lot" was lessed out of a deed from Simeon and Frances Otis to Simeon Otis and Kimbrough J. Whitmire doing business under the firm name of Otis and Whitmire at Mulat, Florida. The plat of the town of Mulat bears the date of 1906, showing the locations of the Depot, as well as the post office and other buildings. Indications are that the buildings were probably built during the end of the 19th century or the very beginning of the 20th century.

At the time of his death on April 29, 1929, Simeon Otis was 61 years of age and a wealthy man. Even though he remembered several nieces and nephews, his sister and a sister-in-law very generously in his will, he left his widow as his only heir and very wealthy. The assessment of his personal property such as stocks and bonds, cash on hand and monies owed to him came to a little over $96,000.00. This did not include any real estate (which may or may not have included the mill) that he held at the time of his death. The probate file is voluminous and was not thoroughly researched.

Life had improved for Sim Otis since he left Robinson Point with a horse and buggy and a sailboat. When Sim Otis died, he owned a ferry boat valued at $1,000.00 and 3 Ford cars (one of them new) valued at $725.00 for all three. Not long after Sim died, Fred W. Fisher married Sim's still young and undoubtedly wealthy widow.11

  1. Simeon Otis' tombstone shows a date of birth of 21 Jan 1868 and his sister Linnie Otis Howe's tombstone shows a birth of 18 Feb 1868. As these dates are within a month of each other, there is an error in one or both. The Alma Elaine Payne Culpepper bible supports the 18 Feb 1868 date for Linnie, and while stating that Simeon was her brother, it does not provide his birthdate. The 1870 census shows Simeon as age 7 (born 1863) and Linnie as age 1 (born 1869). The 1880 census shows Linnie as 10 (born 1870), and Simeon as 13 (born 1867). The 1900 census shows Simeon born Jan 1868. Given the relative consistency of Linnie's reported birthyears, the birthdate shown on her tombstone has been assumed herein, whereas, Simeon's birth year is assumed to be 1866, the average of the birth years in the 1870, 1880, and 1900 censuses.

Death*19 Feb 1902 He died at Talbot Co., Georgia, on 19 Feb 1902 at age 74.13 
Biography* Soon after coming to Talbot County from Hancock County (sic), Georgia, Henry C. Dickson bought Land Lot 21, Upper 17th Land District, O'Neal's GMD 894. William F. Lennard of Talbot County, sold him the whole land lot and three acres of No. 12, by indenture dated 26 Aug 1853, for a consideration of $1,300. The smaller parcel allowed him access to the public road and he built his house on it.
     People who could not afford a frame house when they came to the county to settle, and had spent most of their capital to acquire land, cut trees and built log houses, in hopes of better to come. Henry Dickson built a pioneer style house of logs, two rooms with an open dogtrot between them and stack chimneys of rock and brick at the ends. In his room, he constructed a narrow stair to the sleeping loft above. The dogtrot was later enclosed and made a hall, a front ell room and porch were added, and weatherboarding nailed over the logs.
     The 1860 census shows Henry C. Dickson (Dixon) aged 33, with $1,600 of real estate, $5,084 of personal estate. He owned a few slaves, for he had prospered with cotton and other crops. His wife, Mary S., was 27, and their children were Martha S. (Mattie), 3; Julia, one year of age. All were born in Georgia.
     It is said of Dickson after death that "no times in 50 years have been so hard that his farm was not self-sustaining." Progressive during the Reconstruction and Farmers' Granges era, experimenting and diversifying, he was also a dairyman, traditionally said to have brought the first Jersey cows to the county.
     He bought an undivided half of Land Lot 12 from E. H. Worrill, 7 Jan 1879, and swapped the west half of Land Lot No. 11, which he had acquired, to W. J. Weekes, merchant and planter of Talbotton, for 75 acres bounded on the north and west by Dickson, east by Baldwin, and south by the public road leading from Talbotton to J. H. Gilmer's place. The indenture is dated 1 Jan 1883, "lot number not recollected," but was No. 12.
     Henry C. Dickson died Wednesday, 19 Feb 1902, and then owned all of Land Lot 21, 176.5 acres of No. 12, and 101.25 acres of No. 13, total 480 acres, more or less. His obituary appeared the next day in the "Talbotton New Era.":
     "At his home five miles west of Talbotton (on what is now Dennis Creek Road), Mr. H. C. Dickson breathed his last yesterday morning at 9 o'clock. The news cast a gloom over Talbotton, as no more honorable man ever lived in the county than Mr. Dickson. He was about 75 years old, and has lived in this county over 50 years, and in that time no one can recall a harsh word that has ever been said against him.
     "He served in the war as a Confederate soldier, and there displayed the same calmness of character and fearlessness of spirit that he has shown all his life. Early in life, he joined the Baptist Church, and truly it can be said that he has kept the faith and fought the good fight. His business was never so rushing as to cause him to neglect his church duties.
     "He has always been of a retired nature, and unless one was a close friend to him he would never know how to appreciate him fully. Few men who have worked steadily have acquired more knowledge than he possessed. He was one of the best informed men in the county.
     "As a neighbor, his place is hard to fill; as a citizen, the county loses one to whom she has long looked to for wisdom; as a church member; his faith marked his footsteps; as a father, and a husband, he was loved for his tenderness of heart and wisdom of head. Truly a good man is gathered to his fathers.
     "He leaves three children and a widow: The children are Mrs. McCormick Neal, and Henry L. Dickson, of McIntosh (Marion County), Florida, and David B. Dickson of Talbotton. He was buried today in the family burying ground at his home beside his first wife and eight children who proceeded him to the grave. Our sincerest sympathies go out to the bereaved family in their sad loss."
     The Dickson Family Cemetery contained graves within a rock walled plot, marked with a side stone at head and foot. Only a child's grave, Willie Mc. Dickson (1902-1903), son of D. B. and Coral Dickson has a monument.
     David B. Dickson was administrator for his father's estate, letters testamentary being granted 6 May 1902. The farm of 480 acres, more or less, was sold by Henry L. Dickson of Marion County, Florida, by indenture dated 29 Nov 1905.6

Biography* Mrs. McCormick Neal Dead
The friends of Mrs. Ella V. Neal nee Dickson will be pained to learn of her death which occurred at her home in McIntosh, Fla., at 11:15 o’clock p.m., Nov. 8th.
     She was born in Talbot County May 21st 1854. At the early age of fifteen years, she consecrated her life to God by uniting with the Baptist church. She was married to McCormick Neal, and moved with him to Florida during the winter of 1886.
     Since coming among us she has endeared herself to every heart. Her whole life has been one of love and sacrifice. A more devoted wife never lived, and she has proven a mother indeed to her two orphaned nieces. She came to us a healthy, beautiful woman; scattering sunshine in every home, comforting the sorrows of others and giving a helping hand wherever there was need. No sacrifice was too great for her. Her tender ministrations and bright loving ways were felt wherever there was sickness or suffering, and while going on her holy missions for others, her own loved ones were never forgotten.
     For several years her health has been failing, but we did not think she would so soon be taken from us. During her last illness she suffered the most excruciating pain, but never a word of complaint or impatience passed her lips. Her whole life has been such a bright Christian example that we can only exclaim, “One more added to the happy host of the redeemed in heaven.” She was laid to rest in McIntosh cemetery.11

Letter/Message Text6 Nov 1892 He was the recipient of a letter or message from Mattie Boykin on 6 Nov 1892 at Decatur, DeKalb Co., Georgia:
Letter from Mattie Boykin [age 35] in Decatur, GA to her step-son, Manly Boykin [age 23] in Lamar, Barton Co., MO.

My Dear Manly,
     You begin to think, no doubt, that I am as slow to reply as you were to write. I have been trying to do so ever since the reception of your letter.
     I was glad to hear from all and that Eva [Eva Paxton Boykin, 24, sister-in-law of Manly and step-daughter of Mattie] and the children were so much benefitted by their stay in the country.
     We were moving along in a quiet way, enjoying the baby [Effie/Eleanor Boykin, her daughter who was three days short of one year old], if not everything else that comes into our lives. Narcissa [a reference to Eleanor] has improved very much in so many respects since you were here and is, of course, a growing delight. The "Baby Tender" has been a blessing truly.
     It has strengthened her limbs and given her a great deal of pleasure. She just runs all about in any direction she wishes -- in the "Tender" I mean. She pulls up by chairs on anything convenient and walks around them some. I do not think it will be a great while before she walks.
     You know already of Florence's visit and the length of it. [Florence Barnard, age 18]. I have never had any girl visit in the house who was so pleasant in every way. I got better acquainted with her than ever before and love her that much the more. She did not tell you some things about her stay in Decatur that I certainly will not hesitate to tell you. Perhaps you know she spent a day and night at Mrs. Ramspick's. Mr R. told her she had the advantages of Mamie [identity unknown], that she was here, getting on the good side of me, "Jm(?) Manly"! A mean little thing for him to say. Mrs. R. also joined in and said the same thing in a little different way! As if Florence was the kind of girl to do such a thing!
     Mamie showed her the heart you gave her and told her where she got it -- said she was sorry you did not give her the "love-chain" with it, but she supposed she would get that Christmas! I tell you so you may not disappoint her! She also showed Florence her private "memorial book" and in it a piece of sentimental poetry marked underneath "From B. M. B." They quizzed her to know if you had written to her -- and of course she was too truthful to deny it. Mamie asked her to tell you she would answer your letter in about six months! I wish I could talk with you -- I would tell more than I will write -- some things about the R's that would seem too trivial to write.
     I want to say some other things to you in all seriousness and affection. I certainly feel a deep interest in your future -- and I trust you will let me speak freely to you. I love Florence, too, and feel more interest in her welfare than when you were here. What I want to say is, that if you do not truly and sincerely love Florence, I want you to let her alone. Don't make her think you love her if you do not. I do not know that you could win her love easily, after those two years of leaving her alone -- but do not try unless you will love her on to the end, as any woman with a woman's heart wants to be loved -- supremely.
     I feel for Florence, something of the same kind of concern I will for Belle [Belle Boykin, age 18, Manly's sister and Mattie's step-daughter] when the time comes and I tell you I do not want ever you to trifle the least bit with her. Your going to see her the second time, and writing after you go away, with what you said makes it hard for me to conjecture what your correspondence will lead to. And if you do love her, in justice to her, you surely ought not to continue a course that would lead another to think you aren't in love with her. I should have said in justice to yourself -- for I do not see how you can expect the respect of Florence otherwise.
     Florence would be shocked, no doubt, if she knew I had foreseen to write all this of her -- but it is love for her as well as you that has prompted me. I remember so well, too, the undecided way you spoke of your feelings when here. Since your visit home, I have been more anxious about your future and sincerely interested than before. You understand why. If it seems to you I have gone beyond my privilege in what I have said, that has been my inspiration, and if my words have been out of place in regard to Florence, think no more about them.
     Belle was sick in bed for several days a few weeks ago, but is well now and seems to be doing well.
     Your father [Rev. Thomas Cooper Boykin, Mattie's husband and a Baptist evangelist who traveled a great deal] has not been at home more than a few days at a time since you were here. He is well as usual.
     Give my love to Jim, Eva and the children and include yourself in the division.
               Sincerely,
               Miss Mattie

According to the baby album of Warren Culpepper, Belle Boykin was one of the visitors at time of his birth. Belle was the half-sister of Warren's grandmother, Martha Boykin, and at the time of Warren's birth, she would have been 68 years old. Since she still had the last name of Boykin, she probably never married.

---------------

On 21 Jul 2012, Eve Dravecky1 wrote Warren Culpepper: "Belle Boykin lived alone in West Point, Georgia, when my family visited her in March, 1960... She gave me a crystal perfume bottle she had filled and wrapped and which, to her horror, had leaked because the stopper was not air tight. You are correct to surmise she never married. I think she was a nurse."

"The many friends of Rev. T. C. Boykin, the Sunday-school evangelist, will be pained to learn that the hand of affliction has been laid upon him again, and his son, Thomas C. Boykin, Jr., snatched away from earth in the bloom of his young manhood. Young Boykin was was loved by all who knew him for the amiability of his disposition and exemplary deportment. In the public schools, none stood higher, or was more universally beloved by teachers and scholars. Ere he reached his majority the "Death Angel" called him to "cross over the river" to the land of eternal rest and perfect bliss. We sympathize with the bereaved father."4,5
