Obituary: "Cornelius A. Thames was born in Monroe County near Old Salem Church, and lived there until fourteen years of age when his father moved in the neighborhood of Brooklyn where lived the remainder of his life except four years in the Confederate army, and two years in Florida.... In 1861, when our rights were threatened, he laid aside his industrial implements, donned the Confederate gray, shouldered his musket, and went with company E of the 38th Alabama Reg., ready to be sacrificed upon the altar of his country for what he knew to be right. He never changed his opinion, he was captured at Missionary Ridge and carried as a prisoner of war to that loathsome and inhuman prison Camp Chase where he lay for eleven months until the surrender of Gen. Robert E. Lee when he was paroled and returned to his home.... The esteem in which he was held can be best understood by the great congregation of people who followed his remains to his final resting place in Brooklyn cemetery. Here he was laid to rest by his church and the Masonic fraternity of which he had been a member for fifty-seven years."21

Biography1821 The Whitaker Place.
     In Baldwin County, about twelve miles to the southeast of Milledgeville, lies the plantation known for many years as the "Whitaker Place." It was originally owned by Maj. Francis Boykin, a South Carolinian, prominent in the war of the Revolution, who moved to this county in 1800. He was a successful farmer and accumulated a large area of land which lay on the east side of the Oconee River for a long distance, and extended toward the east to Gum Creek, the dividing line between Washington and Baldwin counties.
     At that time, boats came up the river as far as Milledgeville. Maj. Boykin was appointed one of the River Commissioners, whose duties were to see that the stream was kept clear of snags and other obstructions interfering with the passage of the boats.
     In 1821, Maj. Boykin died. He left two sons and one daughter, Dr. Samuel Boykin, who practiced medicine in Milledgeville; Mr. James Boykin, a Deacon in the Baptist Church; and Miss Eliza Boykin, who married the father of Prof. William Rutherford, of Athens, Ga. Prof. Rutherford was the father of Miss Mildred Rutherford, to whom the South owes a lasting debt of gratitude for the preservation of much of its history.
     Upon the death of his father, Dr. Samuel Boykin gave up his practice in Milledgeville and moved to the plantation. He built a large two-story house for a residence, which became known for miles around as "The White House," because it was the only painted house in the community. He was a great lover of plants and flowers and was the first to demonstrate that sugar cane could be grown in Georgia as high up as Baldwin County. In 1836, he decided to move to Alabama, and sold his plantation to Mr. William Whitaker, a kinsman, who had recently moved into the community from North Carolina.
     William Whitaker cultivated the soil as did Dr. Boykin, and grew large crops of corn, cotton and other products.
     In those days, people traveled by stage coach, and on the long roads there were "Relay Stations" where fresh horses were exchanged for the tired ones, which rested until the return trips. A Relay Station was located on this place and was the center of much interest.
     Upon the death of William Whitaker, the plantation was divided into three parts, and his three children, James, Samuel, and Martha drew for a part.
     The part upon which Dr. Boykin's residence was located, fell to Samuel Whitaker. By that time, this place was very attractive; tall oaks shaded the white sandy yard; in the rear were several black walnut trees which, in later years, attained to immense size. Cherokee rose vines draped the trees on either side of the avenue leading to the public road. Down this road, to the right, was a lane leading to the negro quarters. At the end of the lane was the Overseer's house. On one side of the lane was the Gin House, the first built in that section of the country. This was burned by Sherman's men when a part of his army encamped for several days on that plantation, leaving desolation and ruin behind it.
     At another point, the lane was shaded by a sugar berry tree, unusually tall and branching. There was a superstition among the negroes that this tree was haunted by a spirit which could foretell death, because it had been observed that, just before a death occurred on the place, the tree gave forth a weird and peculiar sound as of the opening of a creaky door. When this was heard, consternation filled the Quarters, be- cause no one doubted but that someone's days were numbered.
     Samuel Whitaker kept a Diary, in which each day's work was faithfully recorded. Every field was designated by its own particular name-as "The New Ground," "The Vineyard Field," "The Goode Field" -the name was symbolic of the nature of the soil or of some association.
     Mrs. Whitaker took an active interest in the religious training of the negroes. A place was provided where they could assemble in public worship. The negro children would come from the Quarters on Sunday afternoons and sit on the steps of her front porch, the larger ones standing in line on the ground, while she talked to them of spiritual things and taught them lessons from the Bible.
     At the close of the war, when losses were heavy, the plantation passed into the hands of Mr. Wirtzfielder, who owned it for a number of years, then sold it to Mr. Sam Walker. After Mr. Walker's death, it became the property of his daughter, Mrs. John Shinholser. Mr. Shinholser now owns the place.
     Mr. Whitaker rented the plantation, after it passed from his hands, and lived there until his death. He was married three times and reared two sons and three daughters: the late William Whitaker was his elder son; the younger son was Dr. James M. Whitaker, for many years on the staff of physicians of the State Sanitarium. The three daughters were Mrs. Elbert Bivins, Mrs. H. D. Allen and Mrs. O. M. Cone.8,9

Biography* Dr. Samuel Boykin was educated at the University of Georgia (graduated 1807) and the Pennsylvania Medical College in Philadelphia. Practiced medicine in Milledgeville for 25 years. State Senator. Also engaged in banking. On the committee of distinguished citizens to entertain General LaFayette on his tour of America when he visited Milledgeville. A man of considerable scientific attainment and reputation, he was the discoverer of several species of flowers and shells which bare his name (Genus "Boykinia" Named for Him). The celebrated English botanist, Lyell, visited him in Columbus and makes mention of him in one of his works. He was the first to demonstrate sugar cane could be grown in GA as high up as Baldwin Co. In 1836 he sold his plantation to William Whitaker, a kinsman. He moved his planting interests to Alabama and settled his family in Columbus, Georgia.

BOYKIN HALL
(From an unknown publication)
Major Francis Boykin, a North Carolinian, who served with Nathaniel Greene during the Revolutionary War, became the owner of a large tract of land east of the Oconee River (1785), about twelve miles from where Milledgeville was laid off in 1803. At his death, (1821) one of his sons, Dr. Samuel Boykin, who lived in Milledgeville, gave up his practice to manage this plantation and was most successful. He was first to demonstrate that sugar could be made in this section, by growing splendid sugar cane, and is mentioned for this feat in Adiel Sherwood's Gazetteer of 1829.

In 1830, Dr. Boykin built a two story Colonial home, which was known as "The White House" because of the fact that it was the only house in the settlement which was painted. But the doctor decided to move to Columbus about 1836 and sold his home to a kinsman, William Whitaker, who continued to cultivate the soil. After Mr. Whitaker's death, his widow and children lived there for a time, and when she passed away, the plantation was divided into four parts, each of the four children drawing lots to see which part fell to them. The plantation upon which this home had been built fell to Samuel E. Whitaker, the father of Mrs. Henry Dawson Allen, of Milledgeville, and this was her childhood home. In 1935, Mrs. Allen, who was Miss Sarah Canty Whitaker, was named Baldwin County's most distinguished citizen and was presented a certificate to this effect by the International Kiwanis, as this honor had been conferred upon her through the local Kiwanis organization.

After the War Between the States this plantation passed out of the possession of the Whitaker family and is now owned by Mr. and Mrs. John Shinholser, the plantation going by the name of Indian Island Farm and Ranch. Mr. Shinholser's grandparents lived in Scottsboro over a hundred years ago, when it was noted as a summer resort, and although 11e was born in Wilkinson County, he has lived most of his life in Baldwin.

Mrs. Shinholser, who was Miss Hallie McHenry of Madison, Georgia, a charming gracious woman, is an artist of considerable note. Although the Shinholsers do not now live in this hor?re, which they call "Boykin Hall", they are doing much to restore the old ante-bellum house. Not far from "Boykin Hall", they have a modern dwelling where old Southern hospitality still holds sway. On this Indian Island Plantation, there is an artesian well, the only flowing well in Baldwin County. The water from this well forms a big swimming pool, which is one of the many attractions of the Plantation. There are also many Indian Mounds on this historic place.

Not far from "Boykin Hall" is the burial ground of the Boykin and Whitaker families. Here lies the body of Major Francis Boykin, a Revolutionary ancestor of the late Miss Mildred Rutherford of Athens, an educator and historian of note.

BOYKIN BIBLE
In possession of Mrs. Thomas Whitner, Atlanta, Ga.

On the fly leaf is inscribed, "To sister Emily from Sam and Laura, April 16, 1861," referring to Emily Catherine Boykin, daughter of Dr. Samuel Boykin, who married I. T. Tichenor. Dr. Samuel Boykin's father was Francis Boykin, Revolutionary soldier of S. C. and Ga. The father of Dr. Samuel Boykin's wife was Thos. Cooper of Henry Co., Va., later of Hancock Co., Ga., and the records of both of these are upon the Roll of Patriots of the D.A.R. The Bible was evidently a bridal present and the entries were made by Mrs. Tichenor. The first birth recorded, Burwell Boykin was the son of Dr. Samuel Boykin by his 1st. wife, Sarah Maria Maxwell.

MARRIAGES:
Francis Boykin and Catherine Whitaker of S.C. had three children: Eliza married Williams Rutherford; James, who was twice married, 1st. to Miss Owens and 2nd. to Miss Rutherford of N. C.

Biography1821 The Whitaker Place.
     In Baldwin County, about twelve miles to the southeast of Milledgeville, lies the plantation known for many years as the "Whitaker Place." It was originally owned by Maj. Francis Boykin, a South Carolinian, prominent in the war of the Revolution, who moved to this county in 1800. He was a successful farmer and accumulated a large area of land which lay on the east side of the Oconee River for a long distance, and extended toward the east to Gum Creek, the dividing line between Washington and Baldwin counties.
     At that time, boats came up the river as far as Milledgeville. Maj. Boykin was appointed one of the River Commissioners, whose duties were to see that the stream was kept clear of snags and other obstructions interfering with the passage of the boats.
     In 1821, Maj. Boykin died. He left two sons and one daughter, Dr. Samuel Boykin, who practiced medicine in Milledgeville; Mr. James Boykin, a Deacon in the Baptist Church; and Miss Eliza Boykin, who married the father of Prof. William Rutherford, of Athens, Ga. Prof. Rutherford was the father of Miss Mildred Rutherford, to whom the South owes a lasting debt of gratitude for the preservation of much of its history.
     Upon the death of his father, Dr. Samuel Boykin gave up his practice in Milledgeville and moved to the plantation. He built a large two-story house for a residence, which became known for miles around as "The White House," because it was the only painted house in the community. He was a great lover of plants and flowers and was the first to demonstrate that sugar cane could be grown in Georgia as high up as Baldwin County. In 1836, he decided to move to Alabama, and sold his plantation to Mr. William Whitaker, a kinsman, who had recently moved into the community from North Carolina.
     William Whitaker cultivated the soil as did Dr. Boykin, and grew large crops of corn, cotton and other products.
     In those days, people traveled by stage coach, and on the long roads there were "Relay Stations" where fresh horses were exchanged for the tired ones, which rested until the return trips. A Relay Station was located on this place and was the center of much interest.
     Upon the death of William Whitaker, the plantation was divided into three parts, and his three children, James, Samuel, and Martha drew for a part.
     The part upon which Dr. Boykin's residence was located, fell to Samuel Whitaker. By that time, this place was very attractive; tall oaks shaded the white sandy yard; in the rear were several black walnut trees which, in later years, attained to immense size. Cherokee rose vines draped the trees on either side of the avenue leading to the public road. Down this road, to the right, was a lane leading to the negro quarters. At the end of the lane was the Overseer's house. On one side of the lane was the Gin House, the first built in that section of the country. This was burned by Sherman's men when a part of his army encamped for several days on that plantation, leaving desolation and ruin behind it.
     At another point, the lane was shaded by a sugar berry tree, unusually tall and branching. There was a superstition among the negroes that this tree was haunted by a spirit which could foretell death, because it had been observed that, just before a death occurred on the place, the tree gave forth a weird and peculiar sound as of the opening of a creaky door. When this was heard, consternation filled the Quarters, be- cause no one doubted but that someone's days were numbered.
     Samuel Whitaker kept a Diary, in which each day's work was faithfully recorded. Every field was designated by its own particular name-as "The New Ground," "The Vineyard Field," "The Goode Field" -the name was symbolic of the nature of the soil or of some association.
     Mrs. Whitaker took an active interest in the religious training of the negroes. A place was provided where they could assemble in public worship. The negro children would come from the Quarters on Sunday afternoons and sit on the steps of her front porch, the larger ones standing in line on the ground, while she talked to them of spiritual things and taught them lessons from the Bible.
     At the close of the war, when losses were heavy, the plantation passed into the hands of Mr. Wirtzfielder, who owned it for a number of years, then sold it to Mr. Sam Walker. After Mr. Walker's death, it became the property of his daughter, Mrs. John Shinholser. Mr. Shinholser now owns the place.
     Mr. Whitaker rented the plantation, after it passed from his hands, and lived there until his death. He was married three times and reared two sons and three daughters: the late William Whitaker was his elder son; the younger son was Dr. James M. Whitaker, for many years on the staff of physicians of the State Sanitarium. The three daughters were Mrs. Elbert Bivins, Mrs. H. D. Allen and Mrs. O. M. Cone.18,19
The Whitaker Place
Death*17 Aug 1821 He died at Milledgeville, Baldwin Co., Georgia, on 17 Aug 1821
The Georgia Journal, August 21, 1821:
Died in Baldwin County at William Rutherford's in the 67th year of his age, Major Francis Boykin on the 18th instant [18 Aug 1821]. His life furnished an example of that steadfastness of habit which should characterize the Christian walk of all professors of religion. In self-denial particularly, he gave evidence of his having soared superior to the natural man and whilst most of the world are engaged in defending their actions with the coloring of words and correcting the misconceptions of others respecting themselves, he hath remained the same silent and cross-bearing personage, seemingly well convinced that error corrects itself, while merit gains its own reward.20 
Burial*after 17 Aug 1821 His body was interred after 17 Aug 1821 at Samuel Boykin Family Cemetery, Milledgeville, Baldwin Co., Georgia. Directions:
From the Baldwin Co Courthouse, go east on Hancock St and follow highways 22/24 SE for 4.4 miles. At the split of 22 and 24, bear right on 24. Go about 7.6 miles on Highway 24 to the old Torrance homeplace on your right (approx. 901 Hwy 24 East). If not blocked by a locked gate, go down the driveway to your right and go for about 1/2 mile or 2600 feet. The drive goes past a grove of pecan trees and the old home place. The cemetery is located to your right and beside a field road that turns off to the right. The cemetery is surrounded by a wrought iron fence.
     If access is not available through the old Torrance home place above, an alternate is to go down the previous driveway at the Meeks property. Go 0.4 mile on the gravel-covered driveway into the Meeks property to a gate on the left. Turn left through the gate and go 0.1 mile on a field road to an opening in the fence. The small cemetery is in the field to your front left about 200 feet from the fence opening. It is enclosed in a wrought iron fence under a chinaberry tree.
     GPS coordinates: 32 59' 29.5" N 83 05' 09.9" W
     The gravestone for "Major Francis B. Boykin, S.C. Mil., Rev. War" is the only one in the cemetery. Some letters of the gravestone are missing, but some of the impressions remain readable.
     Photographs of cemtery and gravestone will be found on the website for Friends of Baldwin Cemeteries, Inc.. See: http://www.friendsofcems.org/Baldwin/.21 
Biography* From "Oconee River Tales to Tell"
     Settlements along the east bank of the Oconee River, on land that was to become Baldwin, were in Washington County from its founding in 1784, with the Oconee as the western frontier, until Baldwin County was organized in 1803. The first federal fort was built at the Rock Landing site in 1789, at the head of navigation of the Oconee River. Federaltown grew around the fort.
     This first white settlement contained fifteen houses-four framed, the others log cabins. A peltry warehouse was built to handle the skins and furs sent down river by pole boats to Darien. From there these were reloaded for shipment to Philadelphia, New York, and Europe. Rock Landing had long been the junction for several Indian trading paths. Because of several shoals, for another score of years, and after many efforts on the part of the Georgia Legislature and private enterprise, shipping would continue from the Rock Landing boat docks, before it was possible for boats to navigate the Oconee River or to land nearer Milledgeville.
     A tobacco warehouse and inspection station was also located at Federaltown. John McKinzie was granted a license by the Georgia Legislature to operate this. One of the first ferries across the Oconee was operated by Aaron McKinzie.
     Federaltown proved an unhealthy site. Several deaths resulted from sickness. The garrison was moved to a new fort built higher up the Oconee. Fort Fidius, completed in 1793, was located two miles below Fishing Creek. Col. Henry Gaither was made commander of what became the largest garrison south of the Ohio River. The raids of the Creeks in the Oconee War were so frequent and violent that the Georgia Legislature raised militia to strengthen the federal forces….
     The path also crossed the upper comer of Elijah Clarke's bounty warrant grant of fifteen hundred acres, immediately below Dysart's land. Clarke's land east of the Oconee was only a portion of the grant awarded him for his invaluable service to Georgia in the American Revolution. His larger tract lay on the west side of the Oconee, as did his son John's grant. Because the Treaty of New York, in 1790, invalidated the previously made Georgia-Creek treaties, the Georgia Legislature was unable to fulfill their commitment to pay the Clarkes and hundreds of other veterans with land.
     Elijah Clarke never cultivated or lived on this land. When not in active service for his state and fellow Georgians, he continued to live in Wilkes County. This tract of Washington County, later east Baldwin County land, was sold and likely purchased to be incorporated into the vastholdings of the Boykin-Whitaker and eventually Shinholser estates, to become the property known as Indian Island Farm and Ranch.
     Three interrelated families, the Boykins, Canteys, and Whitakers, came from the Carolinas in 1785 to take up the bounty warrant grants given them as American Revolution veterans in 1785. They each had sizeable tracts bounded by the Oconee River on the southwest and on the southeast by an island Immediately they purchased additional land and continued to add to their holdings whenever any vacant land became available. Part of Boykin's land had originally been a Head-Right Grant of 287.5 acres to Samuel Bloodworth. Boykin soon acquired all the land between Gum Creek and Town Creek until he owned 2886 acres.
     Major Francis Boykin and Captain James Cantey were from Camden, South Carolina. Ensign Hudson Whitaker was from Halifax County, North Carolina. Boykin was married to Catherine Whitaker and Cantey was married to Martha Whitaker. Hudson Whitaker's son William married Mary Cantey. All the families became extensive planters. Their joint holdings were ten to twelve miles below present-day Milledgeville, off Georgia Highway 24 to Sandersville.
     Boykin was appointed an Oconee River commissioner with supervisory responsibility for improving navigation. All people living within five miles of the river were required to work five days a year on the shoals, rocks, and fallen trees that might impede river navigation. Permission must be obtained to build dams for fish traps or to build a grist mill along the river.
     Boykin's son Samuel studied medicine and practiced his profession in Milledgeville. When his father died, he returned to the plantation and became an equally successful scientific farmer. On most of his acreage he grew corn and cotton, but his interest in sugar cane made him the first farmer in the region to succeed in its production. His cotton gin was also the first in operation in the area.
     Samuel Boykin built the imposing two-story white classical-revival home known in his time as "Me White House," because then it was the only white house in the vicinity. Later, this home came to be called "Boykin Hall.
     John Linley, in "Architecture of Middle Georgia: The Oconee Area", wrote that certain characteristics of the house, such as the fan in the pediment, can be attributed to Daniel Pratt as the architect. The wood and plaster work of the house are particularly noteworthy. The half-mile tree-lined drive approaching the house made it an impressive sight to guests, and to the stagecoach riders who stopped there when this was a relay station.
     A later generation of owners built a new modern house. For some years "Boykin Hall" stood unoccupied and suffered neglect and deterioration, but it has endured more than a century and a half. In more recent years, a subsequent owner has made restorations.
     Dr. Samuel Boykin followed the western migration movement, first to Columbus in 1836, later to Alabama. When Boykin left east Baldwin, William Whitaker bought the nearly three thousand acres, adding it to his adjacent holdings. The Whitakers moved into Boykin Hall. The merged plantations remained Whitaker land until after the Civil War. It is on this land, later known as Shinholser Indian Island Farm and Ranch, that the "Shinholser Prehistoric Earth Mounds" are located.
     Mary Cantey Whitaker, wife of William, was remembered for holding Sunday School classes on the "Boykin Hall" front porch for the children of the plantation slaves….22

Biography* From "Dictionary of Georgia Biography"

BOYKIN, SAMUEL. Editor, historian, clergyman. Born Milledgeville, Ga., 24 November 1829; died Nashville, Tenn., 3 November 1899. Son of Samuel and Narcissa Cooper Boykin. Married Laura Nisbett, 10 May 1865. Children: Laura (or Laurette) N. and Eugenia N. Education: University of Georgia, B.A. (1851), M.A. (1854). Honorary degree: Mercer University, D. D. (1880).

The son of a well-to-do physician-planter, Samuel Boykin was educated in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Georgia. While a student at the University of Georgia he joined a Baptist church. After nearly a year of foreign travel following graduation from college, he farmed in Alabama and Florida (1852-60).

From 1860 to 1865 he was editor and usually owner of the Christian Index, a Georgia Baptist weekly newspaper published then in Macon. As might be expected, his editorial policy vigorously favored the broad missionary and educational activities of organized Georgia and Southern Baptist life, slavery, and the Confederacy-and just as vigorously attacked Lincoln and his administration.

Much more decisive to the remainder of Boykin's life, and to his impact on Georgia and southern life, was his founding in 1862 of the Child's Index, a Sunday-school paper that he prepared and published. After a brief break it was resumed in 1866 as the Child's Delight, becoming widely appreciated within the Baptist denomination. He sold it to the first Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention in 1870, moved to Memphis the following year as its editor (it had been merged with a Tennessee publication as Kind Words and Child's Delight), and returned to Macon in 1874 as its editor after it came under the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. When the second Sunday School Board assumed its control in 1891, he went to Nashville, Tenn., where he spent the remainder of his life as the editor of this and other Sunday-school quarterlies. In this connection he has been described as "almost the chief pioneer and genius in making Sunday school literature for the Baptists of the South."

On the Georgia scene, Boykin's influence was temporary as editor of the Christian Index (1860-65) and as pastor of the Second Baptist Church, Macon (1870). More lasting was his work as editor or coeditor of the memoirs of Howell Cobb and Adiel Sherwood. Most enduring of all his literary labors has been his massive History of the Baptist Denomination in Georgia, with Biographical Compendium and Portrait Gallery of Baptist Ministers and Other Georgia Baptists (1881). That it is now available in a 1977 reprint attests to its merit. In his prime, Boykin was described as quick, impulsive, nervous, and sometimes abruptbut also capable of astonishingly long periods of concentration and writing. He was firm in purpose and resolute in action. Widely appreciated were his humor, wit, and repartee, "without any admixture of coarse or vulgar elements." Warmhearted and generous, he was affectionate, considerate, and thoughtful. Boykin is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Macon, Ga.10

 
Biography From “History of Baldwin County”

Samuel Boykin (Sr.) was descended from Edward Boykin, who immigrated from Caernarvonshire, Wales, and settled in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. Edward Boykin had a son, William Boykin, who died in 1731, leaving a son, William, who moved to South Carolina in 1755 or 1756, and settled in Kershaw county six miles south of Camden. The third son of the last mentioned, Francis Boykin, was a Lieutenant of cavalry in the army at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. He moved to Baldwin county in 1800, and died in 1821. He married Catherine Whitaker and his remains now rest on the plantation of S. E. Whitaker, ten miles from Milledgeville. He left two sons and a daughter. Dr. Samuel Boykin was his eldest son, and James Boykin, a deacon of the Milledgeville church, his youngest. His daughter, Eliza, married the father of Prof. Williams Rutherford of Athens, Georgia.

Dr. S. Boykin, the father of Samuel, graduated at the University of Georgia, 1807, and then attended lectures at the Pennsylvania Medical College, Philadelphia. He was an active, popular, and successful practitioner in Milledgeville, and in a few years accumulated quite a large property.

Samuel was born in Milledgeville, Nov. 24, 1829. He attended school in Columbus, and also at Westchester, Penn., and at Bridgeport, Conn. He was converted in 1847, at a meeting conducted by Rev. Elbert Williams, the pastor at Columbus, and John E. Dawson, but formed no ecclesiastical relations until two years later while a student at Athens, where he joined the church, and was baptized by Rev. S. Landrum, the pastor. He graduated at the State University in 1851, after which he traveled in Europe for six months. He married on May 10, 1863, Miss Laura Nisbet of Macon, Georgia. The degree of Master of Arts was conferred on him by the State University in 1854, and in 1860, he was elected editor of the Christian Index, then owned by the Georgia Baptist Convention and published at Macon. He was for many years editor of the Sunday School paper "Kind Words." He is also the author of Memoirs of Hon. Howell Cobb, a work of great value, alike creditable to the head and the heart of the author, and worthy of the high character of the subject. He was a man of decided convictions; of firm purpose and resolute in action, while at the same time he had that true simplicity of character which worldly associations never impair.

Edward Boykin

Male, #10004, (say 1650 - 27 May 1728)
Ancestry Unknown* Information about the ancestry and siblings of Edward Boykin is wanted. See page footer for contact information. 
Birth*say 1650 Edward was born at England say 1650. Ewen, his "Surnames" in England, lists among the a taxpayers in Huntingdonshire one John Boykyn in 1327 (p. 164). This "Joh'n" abbreviation could be meant for "Johann." and link the origin with Continental Europe. Raadt in his "Armories of Belgium, Luxembourg Allenayne," etc. gives the following reference [translated] to arms of Boykin....

Captain Thomas Cooper

Male, #10008, (1733 - before 13 Feb 1796)
Ancestry Unknown* Information about the ancestry and siblings of Captain Thomas Cooper is wanted. See page footer for contact information.
     On 14 Dec 2010, Martin Cooper wrote: "I have been trying for several years to prove the connection of Captain Thomas to my earliest proven Cooper ancestor, John (1742-1835), whom Sarah Edna Cooper Holtzclaw listed as a sibling of Captain Thomas. I do have some additional info on John, but nothing that connects him to Captain Thomas other than the Holtzclaw statement. Also, I have a very good book on the life of "Mark Anthony Cooper, the Iron Man of Georgia." It contains a lot of detail on the wife of Captain Thomas, Sarah Anthony. There is also an interesting article on the Coopers and Anthony's from the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, vol. 9."1 
Birth*1733 Thomas was born at Frederick Co., Virginia, in 1733. In The Family Record of John Cooper 1778-1909, privately published in 1909, Sarah Edna Cooper Holtzclaw states “In 1620, there was a corporate body of men formed in London, known as the London Company. They settled in Virginia, their object being to develop the country and to protect the English interests as well. Among the names of this corporation we find that of John Cooper, who, we think, is the ancestor of our family, as our family came from Virginia. The next Cooper we find is Thomas, Sr., who lived in Henry County, Virginia. We think Thomas Jr and John were his sons and probably James, William and Arthur as all lived in the same county.”.2,3 
Immigration1741 He immigrated in 1741 to Virginia
Birth of Son1757 His son Joseph Cooper was born in 1757 at Henry Co., Virginia.4 
Marriage*8 Jan 1762 He married Sarah Anthony at Bedford Co., Virginia, on 8 Jan 1762. 
Birth of Sonsay 1769 His son John Cooper was born say 1769 at Henry Co., Virginia.5 
Birth of Son1771 His son Thomas Cooper Jr. was born in 1771 at Henry Co., Virginia.6 
American Revolution*between 1775 and 1783 He provided service in the American Revolutionary War between 1775 and 1783
(DAR Listing: Thomas Cooper, born circa 1733-35 in Virginia, died 13 Feb 1796 in Georgia, married Sarah Anthony, Patriotic Service, Virginia.)4 
Birth of Sonsay 1782 His son Micajah Cooper was born say 1782 at Henry Co., Virginia
Relocation*say 1790 He relocated say 1790 at Wilkes Co., Georgia, In his Story of Georgia, and Georgia People, George G. Smith wrote that many of the Hancock County settlers came from Mecklenberg and Rowan counties, in North Carolina, as well as from Virginia. Many of these lived in Jefferson and Burke counties before moving into the section of Washington County which later became Greene and Hancock. Smith wrote that there were two classes of people before 1800: (1) slave owners with a few Negroes and about four hundred acres, and (2) yeomen with two hundred acres and only his family for labor. The wealthier families cultivated their plantations in the county but built their homes in Sparta.
     Choice land in Hancock County was considered to be along the Oconee River and its tributaries, particularly Shoulderbone Creek. Fort Creek junctured with Shoulderbone very near where it junctured with the Oconee. Quite early Fort Twiggs was built in this vicinity to give protection to the settlers and to guard the ford where the Upper Trading Path of the Creeks crossed these creeks. This protection attracted additional settlers to the area. Pine Woods House Trading Store, built near the fort, became the hub of political and social activities for the area.
     Shoulderbone Creek is a long creek rising in Greene County, with numerous tributaries. The naming of Shoulderbone Creek is similar to the naming of Scull Shoals. Prehistoric earth mounds and an early Indian village and burial grounds were in close proximity. Spring floods through the years have continued to wash up human bones. In the early days, a human scapula and humerus bone were found against a rock in the creek, so the pioneer settlers called it Shoulderbone Creek. The county line established in 1793, when Hancock was cut off from Greene County, was just below Fosters' Stockade, a short distance from where Shoulderbone Creek enters the Oconee River.
     (A list of Hancock County settlers along the Oconee River tributaries and valley is then given, and included among them are Thomas Cooper and Mark A. Cooper.)
     All the settlers sought a desirable spot near a spring, and near a trail leading to civilization. As quickly as possible, trees were cut to clear land for a home and a patch for a food crop. The trees were used to build first a stockade for protection against the Indians, then a log cabin-many double, because most families were large in number with some sons old enough to help. Rails were split to fence around the patches. The livestock roamed in the grasslands and woodlands. Settlers helped each other accomplish these necessary tasks, while some were on constant watchful guard against the Indians.
     In the early years, farm crops were primarily for human and animal consumption. Food crops of corn, beans, and potatoes were planted. Also, a few rows of cotton were planted in the garden for personal household use. The seeds had to be tediously picked from the lint before spinning could be done. A herd of sheep provided the wool for most of the clothing and covering. Tobacco and indigo were planted for personal use and as cash crops. The indigo was used to make a blue dye. Tobacco had been the primary money crop on their Virginia and North Carolina farms and it would continue to be until after the War of 1812. Surpluses of both these crops were exported and the cash used for sugar, coffee, tools, medicine, and ammunition.
     Other sources of income were from their livestock and from timber….7

Biography*circa 1796 "Around 1796, there was raised in Hancock County what was claimed to be the first crop of cotton ever grown in Georgia," wrote James E. Callaway, in The Early Settlement of Georgia. This statement should probably be qualified by adding short-staple cotton, as coastal Georgia had been growing long-staple cotton years before that. Thomas Cooper, who owned 1,596 acres of red clay oak and hickory land, deemed to be the best suited for cotton cultivation, was reputedly the cultivator of this first cotton crop. It is not known whether Cooper had acquired a replica of the cotton gin, invented by Eli Whitney in 1793, to remove the seeds from his short-staple cotton. The invention of the cotton gin revolutionized cotton production in the South.9 
Death*before 13 Feb 1796 He died at Hancock Co., Georgia, before 13 Feb 1796.10

Research note* It appears possible that the genealogy as published here is in error. The Francis Boykin will below seems to indicate that Francis, not William, is the grandfather of Samuel and Francis Boykin. However, this may be a different pair of Francis and Samuel Boykins than the ones in this genealogy that are the sons of William Boykin II.

Etienne Mallet

Male, #10011, (circa 1707 - )
Name-Comm His was commonly known as Stephen. 
Birth*circa 1707 Etienne was born circa 1707. 
Marriage*1728 He married an unknown person in 1728. 
Research note* On 5 Dec 2005, Lawrence Edward "Larry" Mallette wrote:
     You asked about parents of Etienne, father of Judith Mallet Clark. His father was Etienne, who arrived in 1699 with his wife Marie aboard the "Mary and Ann", the first of four ships bearing Huguenots from London to Virginia, to settle at Mannakintown, near present day Richmond. Etienne died in about 1712, leaving his son and two daughters orphans, as Marie had predeceased him. The three children are listed in Brock in a census from around 1714 as among 14 orphans. All this is available online. See: http://manakin.addr.com/, http://manakin.addr.com/web.htm and http://manakin.addr.com/brock4.htm. Another copy and background is at http://www.ls.net/~newriver/va/manakin.htm
     BTW, I am descended from Judith's older brother, William.
     Etienne's will stated he was a native of Bordeaux and lists his three children, thereby authenticating Etienne as his son. Unfortunately, I do not have authenticated any information about Etienne and Marie's life before Virginia.
     There was an Etienne Malett baptized in Sep 1674 at the Huguenot church in Threadneedle Street, London, the son of Jacob Malett. Another Etienne Mailet was witness (godfather).
     In Jul 1673, an Etienne Mailet, a native of Montauban, married Marie Coquart at the church. He was son of Etienne.
     It is possible the the Elder Etienne had two sons, Jacob and Etienne, and that Jacob named his son after his grandfather. But why would Etienne have been born in Bordeaux and baptized in London? Perhaps he was carried to London so that his grandparents could serve as godparents. Bordeaux is just west of and down river from Montauban, so perhaps Jacob and wife were en route when the infant arrived, or they could have removed to Bordeaux from Montauban before deciding to leave France later.
     I lack two key bits of authentication:
          1. Etienne bap. 1674 as our Etienne who came to Virginia.
          2. Jacob as son of Etienne the Elder, and brother of Etienne who married in 1673.
     I'd like to find a birth registration for Etienne in Bordeaux, which would
give his parents names. I'd like to find the record of his marriage to Marie. If I could find one of these two items, we could verify that Jacob was the father of the same Etienne who came to Virginia. Then we would need to connect Jacob to his father Etienne.
     A couple of sites on the internet have already made these connections, but without giving the authentication source.
     Hope this helps. Let me know if you locate any of the missing records above.1

Biography* John(5) Clark, son of Thomas(4) and Sarah (Norwood) Clark, was born in Isle of Wight Co., Va. The date of his birth was 1728 according to the D.A.R. Line of Mrs. Hattie Nisbet Latta, a descendant of his daughter, Sarah (Clark) Harvey, who joined the D.A.R. many years ago on John Clark's record as a Revolutionary soldier in South Carolina (D.A.R. Lineage Book, Vol. XX, p. 39). John Clark died in Edgefield County, S.C. in 1794. His will shows that his wife was named Judith and a series of notes made over 75 years ago on the Clark and Harvey families by Rev. Thomas Boykin, a descendant, gives her maiden name as Mallett. The notes include a letter written by John and Judith Clark's grandson, Judge James Clarke (b. 1798) of Atlanta, Ga., and the information about Judith's maiden name no doubt came from Judge Clarke. The statement in the notes was confirmed by a great-granddaughter, Mrs. Fannie Keene, who stated that Judith, wife of John Clark, was French, that she was named Mallett, and that her father was Etienne Mallett. Judith Mallet, daughter of Etienne (Stephen) and Olive (Magdaleine (Salle) Mallet was born Sept. 2, 1736 at the Huguenot colony at Manakintown, then in Goochland Co., Va. The father, Stephen Mallett, movedto Lunenburg Co., Va., about 1750, and Judith Mallett and John Clark were probably married there about 1755 (for further ancestry, see the Mallet and Salle Families). Mr. Boykin's notes further state that John Clark had a brother named Carter Clark, who lived in Mecklenburg Co., Va., which further confirms the connection of this Clark family with Thomas(4) Clark and his sons, mentioned in the preceding paragraph.

John(5) Clark first appears in the Virginia records in 1736, when his uncle, William Norwood, left him land in Isle of Wight Co., as as small child. The land fell into Southampton Co. on the organization of that county, and in 1763, as "John Clark of Lunenburg Co.", he deeded the land away. Between April 14, 1767, when he and his brothers James and Carter deeded the negro from Jordan Thomas Clark's estate to Jesse Clark, and Dec. 3, 1767, John Clark moved from Mecklenburg Co., Va., to Granville Co., S.C. (later Edgefield Co.) On the latter date John Clark of Granville Co., S.C. sold Carter Clark of Mecklenburg Co., Va., 300 acres on Allen's Creek in Mecklenburg Co. (Mecklenburg D.B. 2, p. 5); and on Nov. 12, 1770, no doubt in connection with the settlement of his brother Jesse's estate, John Clark of Granville Co., S.C., appointed James Clark his attorney for collecting debts in Mecklenburg Co. (D.B. 2, p. 540). According to his grandson, Judge James Clarke, John Clark settled about 16 miles north of Hamburg, S.C. on Stephens Creek. During the Revolution he served as a soldier in the South Carolina troops. In Rev. Thomas Boykin's notes, it is stated that John Clark was killed by marauders in his house in 1777; and my father's cousin, Ben Carter, told me that he had heard from his own grandfather, Benjamin W. Clark (another grandson of John Clark), that John was called to the door of his house and shot by Tories. This testimony seems certain, so far as John Clark's being shot and wounded is concerned. However, he could hardly have been killed, as his will, dated 1779 in Edgefield Co., S. C. , was not probated until 1794, which must have been the date of his death. The will, dated July 7, 1779 and probated at the March Term, 1794, in Edgefield Co., leaves 8 negroes and considerable landed property to his wife Judith, her property to go later to sons Jeremiah and Jesse and "the child that my wife is now big with"; son Thomas; son John, son William, son James, daughter Frances Clark; daughter Rebeckah Clark; and appoints the wife Judith and son Thomas executors. It is possible that John Clark died from his wounds in 1779, and that the will was not probated until 1794, possibly on the death of his wife. However, there was a Judith Clark who died in Edgefield Co. in 1815, her estate being administered by John Adams and payments made to Willoughby and Elizabeth Clark, minors,
under the guardianship of Thomas Dozier. This may possibly have been Judith, wife of John Clark, and the minor Clark children may have been her grandchildren, children of Jeremiah or Jesse Clark.

John Clark's wall does not mention the eldest daughter, Sarah Clark, who had already married James Harvey at the time the wall was written. However, Sarah is a well attested daughter, being mentioned in the Boykin notes, and also by Judge James Clark in 1876, he being both her nephew and her husband's great-nephew. The Boykin notes also mention a daughter Elizabeth, who was probably the unborn child mentioned in John Clark's will. Of the other children, Thomas lived and died in Edgefield Co., S.C., and so apparently did John. James Clark moved to Green Co., Ga. with has brother William, and died there. According to the Boykin notes, either Elizabeth or Frances married a Mr. Christopher, while Rebecca married an Ousley and lived in Auburn, Ala.1

Biography* Thomas Clark, son of Thomas and Susannah Clark, was born in Isle of Wight Co., Va., about 1702-5, and died in Southampton Co., Va. in 1752. He married Sarah Norwood, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Norwood of Isle of Wight Co. (for her ancestry see V.H.G. pp. 333ff). Thomas Clark's will, dated Dec. 1, 1750, and probated in Southampton Co. Feb. 13, 1752, leaves a rather large personal estate and considerable areas of land in Lunenburg Co., Va., to his wife Sarah, daughter Frances, and sons John, James, Jesse, Jordan Thomas, and Carter Clark (Southampton W.B. "A" p. 72). All the sons moved to Lunenburg Co., Va. (later Mecklenburg Co.) almost immediately after their father's death.

James Clark married Hannah --------- and died in Mecklenburg Co. in 1785, while his wife Hannah died in the same county in 1809, both their wills being extant in the Mecklenburg records. Their children were:
(1) Sarah Clark who married Abel Farrar Aug. 11, 1789;
(2) Elizabeth Clark who m. David Holmes Jan. 15, 1790;
(3) Jordan Clark;

Jesse Clark died unmarried in Mecklenburg Co. in 1770, his will, dated Dec. 24, 1769, and probated March 12, 1770, leaving all his property to his brothers John, James and Carter Clark (W.B.I, p. 59).

Jordan Thomas Clark apparently died unmarried in Mecklenburg Co. in 1767, and on April 14, 1767, John, James and Carter Clark deeded to Jesse Clark a negro belonging to the estate of Jordan Thomas Clark (Mecklenburg D.B. 1, p. 459).

Carter Clark, the youngest of his brothers, was an Ensign and later a Lieutenant in the Mecklenburg Co. mil. in 1778, during the Revolution, and married Martha Farrar in Mecklenburg Co., Nov. 9, 1778. He died in Mecklenburg Co. in 1828, his will, dated Dec. 13, 1827, and probated Jan. 21, 1828, showing the following children:
(1) Frances Clark;
(2) Lucy Clark;
(3) Jesse Clark (b. 1781-2);
(4) Sarah Clark m. Martin Jones;
(5) Elizabeth O. R. Clark m. Milton Robinson;

Death*1799 He died at Hancock Co., Georgia, in 1799. 
Biography* The records of Thomas Harvey are few, but there is reason to believe that he was associated with the best element of people who came into Georgia just prior to the Revolution. Indications point to the fact that the Harveys and Kendricks and Talbots composed a group or part of a group who migrated from "Southside" Virginia and the Roanoke River section of North Carolina, entering Georgia by way of Wilkes and Columbia counties, moving gradually across Georgia in a southeasterly direction through Hancock and Washington into Baldwin and Jones and Putnam and Clarke Counties, then across the Okmulgee River after 1820 to the counties of Houston, Sumter and Stewart, some of them finally entering Alabama and West Florida, others passing on to Louisiana and eventually to Texas.
     The records of Lunenburg County, Va., contain the names of several Harveys whose Christian names coincide with those who settled in Georgia in later generations; likewise the records of Bute County, N.C., mention several Kendricks of similar name to the Middle Georgia Kendricks shown by the 1820 census. In "Sunlight on the Southside," Professor Landon Bell lists the name of John Harvey and of Michael Harvey on the tax roll of 1749, and the names of John Harvey, William Harvey, Thomas Harvey and Thomas Harvey Jr. on the tax list of 1764.
     Thomas Harvey of Hancock County, Ga., is said to have been born in Virginia about 1730, and it is possible he could have been one of those of the name mentioned in the preceding paragraph. The Harvey family appears to have lived somewhere in the territory of the Upper Roanoke River, Cub Creek and Falling River in Lunenburg County. They are not listed in that county after 1764 but in Charlotte County, which was formed from Lunenburg in 1765. There is found the will of Thomas Harvey who died in 1782 leaving "lands in Georgia" to his sons John, William, Thomas and Blasingame Harvey and his daughters Sarah Howell, Frances Harvey, Elizabeth Paulett and Drucilla Harvey. Blasingame Harvey and the Howells and Pauletts came with the younger Thomas Harvey to Georgia and settled in Jefferson County and Hancock County.
     Thomas... John, Michael, Evan and James Harvey were soldiers in the Revolution under General Elijah Clark. History records the almost complete subjugation of Georgia by the British during the early years of the struggle, the upper country being laid waste to such an extent that "the women and children were taken over the mountains to the Holston Country as farming was impossible, the cattle driven off, and starvation threatened," between 1779 and 1781. Many refugeed to South Carolina but returned when the fortunes of the American Cause were revived and a goodly portion of the state regained.
     Knight's Roster of Georgia Soldiers of the Revolution contains the name of Thomas Harvey.
     The Minutes of the Executive Council of Georgia show grants of land to Thomas Harvey and his sons, 300 acres being allotted to Thomas Harvey, November 18, 1783, and 287 1/2 acres November 17, 1784.
     Thomas Harvey resided near Powellton in Hancock County prior to his death which occurred about 1799. His four sons (sic)(actually brothers), John, Michael, Evan and James, signed a deed as administrators of his estate in December, 1802. Tradition gives the name of his wife in one instance as Rachael and in another as Mary Manna - there is no certain record on this point so far discovered, and both given names are found in the list of the children of his son (actually, brother), John Harvey.1 
Research note* The research of Jack Marler (see: www.crosswinds.net/~marlerjc/)
and of Alton L. Harvey (e-mail address), author of The Thomas P. Harvey, Sr., Family, and The John Harvey (1720-1772) of the Edgefield District, SC, suggests that Thomas Harvey is not, as some have reported, the father of James, Michael, John and Evan Harvey, but their brother:
     "The elder Thomas Harvey, in 1785, was residing in Wilkes County, Georgia. He was a soldier in the army of Col. Elijah Clarke, from Georgia, during the Revolutionary War. There is record, dated 2 October 1784, of his authorization to receive pay for service in the regiment of Colonel Samuel Hammond. Previous to the War, in 1765, he had obtained grants of land in South Carolina. For the terminus ad quem of his date of death (29 February 1792), see (1) Court of Greene County, Georgia, 3 April 1792, Letters of Administration for the Estate of Thomas Harvey, in the DAR Library, Washington, D. C. and (2) Bienville Parish Historical Society, History of Bienville Parish, p. 134, in the Jackson Parish Library, Jonesboro, Louisiana. A terminus a quo often suggested for his date of death (1779) is to be found in Texas Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Texas Daughters Revolutionary Ancestors (1976), p. 978, in the Abilene Public Library, Abilene, Texas. Certainly, at the beginning of 1779, he was residing in Hancock County, Georgia.
     "Greene County, Georgia: Harvey, Thomas, deceased: John Harvey of Washington County, Georgia, Michael Harvey, Evan Harvey and James Harvey of Greene County, Georgia applied for letters of administration on 3 April 1792 in Greene County, Georgia [Source: Georgia Intestate Records, by Jeanette Holland Austin, Genealogical Publishing Company, 1996, p. 139]
     "Because Thomas HARVEY died intestate, his estate was administered by his brothers John, Michael, Evan, and James. Casual investigators have jumped to the conclusion that the John, Michael, Evan, and James HARVEY by whom Thomas's estate was administered must have been his sons. But, at the time of his death, Thomas HARVEY had no adult (21 years of age or older) male children by whom his estate could have been legally administered. Thus, by fathering Thomas HARVEY onto his own brothers, careless reporters of this line have wreaked considerable havoc. Chief among these have been Mr. and Mrs. John Bennett Boddie in Historical Southern Families, vol. 1 (1957)."
