Re: Allen V. Brooks of S.C.

In Reply to: Re: Allen V. Brooks of S.C. by Billie Hodge of 12718

Hi Billie!
Humm... so this is NOT Allen Vance Brooks-maybe a good thing. Your Brooks names sound a lot like our Brooks DNA matched names. Do you know anymore about your Brooks? Here are those DNA matched Brooks. Some of your names also sound like the desendants of Matthew Whiting Brooks of Newberry, SC -that may be our Brooks connection. Have you looked at him as your ancestor? I could also post what I have on his line if you don't have it.

The First Annual Brooks Reunion of William & Rachel Brooks was held September 14, 1986 in the city park in Newport, TN. Around 125 descendants attended. It was organized by Anna Laura Brooks Thornton and Irene Brooks Miller, Anna's daughter, Dorothey Ann Thronton Ellis, and a counsin, Galdys Wild Copp.
It is always the 2nd Sunday in the park. Each year Doris Wild Parks and Audrey Wild Weeks, sisters of Gladys, join Gladys and Irene in planning and carrying out the annual event.

Notes for SARAH:
1860 Census Listed with children??

Johanna - I am a descendant of George Brooks, b. 1804 SC (according to the 1850 Cocke Co, TN census.) I am part of a Brooks DNA group on Yahoo and we are presently testing to see if we trace back to William Brooks, b. 1781 NC(according to the 1850 Cocke Co, TN census). There are many interesting aspects of your post, but I am most interested in one; i.e., Sarah Black who William Brooks was supposed to have married. We have some suspicion that our William was married twice - first to Sarah and 2nd to Rachel. William Brooks is first found in TN in the 1830 census. This matches with the same timeline that George first appears in TN, too. I have a document for a land patent for George dated Feb. 1830. His oldest child listed in the 1850 census for Cocke Co, TN was Warren, b. 1832 TN. In this 1830 Cocke Co, TN census, living next door to William was his brother, Joel Brooks, and also, Reuben BLACK (actually there is an older Reuben Black and a younger one, also). In thinking that Sarah and William might have divorced and William remarried: Sarah Brooks, age 77 b. SC appears in the 1860 Cocke Co, TN census in the household of James N Brooks, 28, b. TN. Another older female, Judith Brooks, age 47 b. SC is also here. I believe this James may be the son OR the grandson of William Brooks b. 1781 NC. It's very difficult to tell since William's youngest son was James age 17, b. TN (according to the 1850 Cocke Co, TN census) Have you done any more research on Sarah Black Brooks, wife of William Brooks? I am very anxious to compare notes with you.

IN 1826, PENDLETON DISTRICT WAS DIVIDED INTO PICKENS & ANDERSON COUNTIES-find land where this Thomas Brooks was living in 1820.

Check on Thomas Brooks living beside Haynie and the Evergreen Tract in Anderson county-Because William Hayne took the name of his friend, William Brooks when William Brooks was killed in the Civil War. William (Hayne) Brooks had 8 sons and gave them the name of Brooks. Six of those sons along with William (Hayne) Brooks are buried at Golden Groove Methodist Church in Liberty, SC. The name on William (Hayne) Brooks's Civil War Tombstone reads-William Hayne but all 6 sons have the name Brooks. The location of Golden Groove Meth. Church is close to the area where our Thomas Warren Brooks, Sr. and family moved about 1874 and remained. Who was the William Brooks whose name William Hayne took?

Royal Family Name Notes:

From Melvin Miles on NC & TN Royal with a William Brooks Marriage but later than what we are looking for:

The following info was taken from THE ROYALL FAMILY OF WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA -- AN UPDTE IN 1995 -- BY Hardin and Virginia Royall. I have more info if you care to email me direct at melvinsmail@advi.net

Wiley Roiyall (9/2/1841 - 11/21/1863) m Charity Lucinda Harris (9/2/1837-1915) but we were told (authors) by a descendant that "Grandma died at the age of 90!", dtr of Lewis and Hannah Smith Harris of Cherry Lane. She later married William M Brooks (3/8/1854 - ?). Marriage records of Alleghany Co., NC; William Brooks, son of Hardin and Cessa Brooks to Lucinda Royal, daughter of Lewis and Hannah Harris, Feb. 28, 1873, W, V. B. Norman, J. P" Their son, charlie William brooks was b 19 Sept, 1886.

In an interview in 1979, this story was related by Paul Smith, who said that he had heard it many times from hs father-in-law, William F. Royall. Wiley Royall, William Crouse and a gentry boy were near the Virginia line trying to make their way tot he Northern army. As they were in a house with the Home Buard nearby, a woman gave the Genrty boy a dress and bonnet, and he escaped in this outfit to report that he Home Guard had surrounded the house and had set it afire. WHen Wiley Royall and William Crouse ran to escape, they wer shot.

In 1992, we were fortunate to be allowed to read an 1867 copy of a book entitled THE THRILLING ADVENTURES OF DANIEL ELLIS, inwhich Ellis relates a gory detail and deaths of eight of the ten menkilled while trying to escape to Northern lines. Wiley Royal was mentioned but not William Crouse, thought accfording to famly tales, he was surely one o f the two unknown men.

Again thanks to Nancy Putzel, who lent us the book, we were able to visit Wiley's grave and that of the rmainder of the men killed at this time. It is a mass grave near where they were killed and the surrounding terrain still looks thie same.

The grafe is in the Bell Cememtery at Lilmestone Cove, Unicoi County, TN, The historical marker along SR 107 refers to the "Massacre at Limestone Cove," and jsut above it is the cemetery, again with a historical marker, so that it is easily found, once you know the correct roads to follow. In 1993, we used the following roads in Tennessee -- 19E to 173 south to 107 west, turning south at Liestone Cove, Unicoi county, Tennessee

In 1797 he married Frances "Fanny" Morgandollar, daughter of John and Elizabeth Morgandollar, of Coosawhatchie. Fanny was born on her parents' plabntation in Coosawhatchie in Dec 1780.

From Michael McKinney m.p.mckinney@worldnet.att.net Genealogy.com messages # 842, #843

I know there were old Royal families around the Edgefield/Abbeville County lines, in late 1700-early 1800's period.

This may be a "long lost" link/stepping-stone for some of you.

Seek info from anyone with info or questions about those families, as I'm trying to tie them into my family lines.

I'll supply specific names of some of these people in a follow-up post.

Brief notes from Edgefield County deedbooks, etc.:

Samuel Royal had 2 surveys of land, some time before 1801, on Big Creek of Little Saluda River, adj. mouth of John Coaters Branch. Deedbook 21.

Another Book 21 deed describes land on Big Creek of Little Saluda River, "crossing Ryals Branch".

Philip Rowls bought land, 1801, on branch of Clouds Ck. of Little Saluda River. Deedbook 19

An 1816 deed mentions land adj. Phillip Rowls, & refers to some of same land as above. Book 34

Book 32 has James Royle witnessing 2deeds, 1815.

Note: There was a family named Rowell in Edgefield, & I don't know if some of these deeds or name-spellings are theirs, but the 2 families seem to live across the County from each other.

An 1845 Edgefield deed for 318 acres, on Beaverdam Creek of Cuffeytown Creek, was sold to a Stalnaker family, who I'm somehow related to, & other of my ancestors were in this neighborhood.
This deed says that until recently, the property had been part of the ROYAL land. Book GGG.

The Federal Census of 1790 lists a Samuel Ryal.
The 1800 Census lists a James Rayls & a David Riles.

The minutes of the Mountain Creek Baptist Church, from a pre-1850 era, list at least one Royal as member.
I don't have exact notes on this at hand. Member may be a Free Black by this name, but not sure.

There was also a Reverend Royal or Royall who came to this area from Charleston, SC before the Civil War. He's mentioned in Chapman's History of Edgefield County, which I have here but is buried somewhere so I can't get the Reverend's 1st name at the moment.

The Royal property I cited in the above post may be this:
John Kirksey sold land on waters of Cuffy Town Creek, adjoining William Rayall, in 1830 per Deed Book 44.
John Kirsey is a 3rd gr-grandfather of mine.
I interpret "on waters of" Cuffytown Creek as not being directly on that creek, but on upper tributaries of it, which would be Beaverdam Ck, etc.
If I have a Royal ancestor, this family must be it.

In a Deed of Gift, Thomas Jones gives Elizabeth Royals his house & lot in Campbellton, & his fishery, 1821.
Edgefield County, SC Deedbooks 36-38.

I think a Royal Henderson is on the 1850 Abbeville County, SC Census.

He Is on the 1850 Abbeville census, living in household of James M. Chiles, who was a Baptist preacher.

Some earlier Royals lived as neighbors to my old Quaker Hendersons in Edgefield County. Perhaps he is a product of a marriage between these families.

My gr-grandfather had a brother named Albert Royal McKinney, b. in 1870's, & that is why I'm looking into the Royals as a possible Family line.

The Rowell family I mentioned previously could be a different spelling of Royal, but not sure at moment.

Cat,
Your GA Royals may be the same ones I'm working on.
See my Edgefield, SC posts, especially the one on Beaverdam Ck of Cuffeytown Creek.
Looks like those Royals left there about same time yours come to GA?

I have a good many Gwinnett ancestors from my mother's side.
The Royals would be my father's side.

I live in Atlanta area, in Marietta.

Michael P. McKinney

Carolyn,

Where did your Royal family come from in S.C.

I'm working on a long-shot that my family has a Royal link, based on middle name of a gr/gr gr uncle.

I'm working on Edgefield/Abbeville Counties in SC & surrounding areas, as well as Augusta, GA area.

I know that there were early Royal families in Edgefield area, because of land deeds,etc. & that they were living as neighbors with other documented ancestors of mine, but can't yet determine exact nature of relationship, if it exists.

The only possible monkey-wrench in equation is that there was a Reverend Royal, who'd come from Charleston area, & I hope my relative wasn't just named for him as a kindness.

Michael P. McKinney


From Charles Royall in reply to Where is Doghams Plantation?

I trace my line back to and through Joseph Royall of Henrico Co Va. Have some family info, in fact have lots of family info.
Charles Royall cnroyall@wcc.net

Location of Doghams. Go from Richmond towards Jamestown, after passing through Charles City it will be on the right side of the hiway about 10 miles from Charles City. There are stone pillars with a iron frame across the top of the pillars and gravel driveway with the name of Dogham onthe iron frame across the top. House can not be seen from the gate or road. go down drive about 1/4 mile. In front of the house is a small parking area. When parked look to the left. About 100 yards and just inside the trees and overgrowth is the Royall Cemetery. No one can block your right to go to the cemetery. The last time I was there 15 years ago the cemetery was badly overgrown and most markers were broken and strewn about.

The next place to Doghams on the same side of the hiway is Shirley Hundreds. It is a trourist place with tours.
It borders on the Royall land. If you see the sign and entrance to Shirley Hundreds you have just passed Doghams.

The woman who owned the place was ill and not expected to live and her children had no intrest in keeping the place according to the housekeeper. Inside the home hanging on the wall was the orignal charter from King James to Joseph Royall. The home is all orignal except for 1 small part that was added on some 75 years later. The home was built in late 1600's.

African American Royal-Grief Royall:
Hello Jerome: James Wesley Royal told me you had extensive information on African American Royall/Royal's.. I notice on this thread (4/01,10/01 5/02) that Grief Royall was the son of Rave (a slave owned by John C. Royall). I am new at this and find the posts confusing..about who married who and what their childrens names were.

I am interested in the post of 10/01. It may help me find more information about my great-grandfather Abraham Royall b. 1835 (Virginia or North Carolina). I found him in Athens, Texas Henderson County in 1870 with a wife and family, but I cannot find information between 1835-1869.

Any help would be greatly appreciated....Ellinore

ABBEVILLE DIST., SC

Thomas W. Brooks and wife Eliza Ann &
Lewis Busby and wife Mary
South Carolina
Abbeville District

To the Honorable the Chancellors of said State-Humbly complaining show unto your Honors your Orator and Oratrix Lewis Busby and Mary his wife of said state and District as follows died in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred And thirty two, and left surviving his his wife Lucy Pulliam who died in August in the year of our Lord one thousand eight Hundred and thirty six, leaving four daughters to wit your Oratrix, Mahala now the wife of Mathew H. Bryson who lives in Alabama, Rhoda now the wife of William Sanders who live in Pontotoc County, Mississippi, and Eliza Ann now the wife of Thomas W. Brooks who live in Abbeville District. All these children of Lucy Pulliam have married since her death.
Rhoda Pulliam, who was the widow of James Pulliam deceased was possessed of considerable property and in or about the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty five gave and delivered to your Oratrix and her sisters named aforesaid who had but small means a Negro woman named Leah and daughter Ally. Whatever the precise terns aft said Gift was your Orator and Oratrix assert there was a substantial and legal gift of said Leah and her said daughter to the Sisters of your Oratrix with herself and actual delivery of the said slaves accompanied for some time by possession and that the little ____ said slaves passed from said Rhoda Pulliam to your Oratrix and her sisters aforesaid. Some time after the said Leah and her child Ally had been in the possession of your Oratrix and her sisters Leah proved inciente and the time of her delivery approaching Leah returned to Rhoda Pulliam for the purpose of receiving some comforts and attention which your Oratrix and sisters had not the means to bestow upon her. Soon after this return of Leah to Rhoda Pulliam your Oratrix mother Lucy Pulliam died, and your Oratrix and her sisters ceased to live together and they had before and lived among their friends and relatives. For this reason your Oratrix alleges the said Leah who now had some children was returned to or repurchased by said Rhoda from J. P. Coleman and as your Orter and Oratrix have heard and believe on account of the acknowledge right of you Oratrix and her Sisters. They said Leah and her children who increased rapidly in number thu unmarried in the possession of Rhoda Pulliam until her death and during this time the said Rhoda always acknowledged the rights of your Oratrix and sisters to said slaves and never put in jeopardy their right by a claim of any interest on her part but wished _____ the use of Leah and her children until her death, which possession was entirely permissive on the part of your Oratrix and sisters and not adverse to their rights. On the twenty sixth day of June Anno Domino one thousand eight hundred and forty six the said Rhoda Pulliam died in possession of said slaves leaving no will and of her estate Thomas Byrd is the administrator upon whom soon afterwards a demand of Leah and her children was made whom he refused to deliver.
Proceeding at once against the said Thomas B. Byrd would have been instituted, but the title of Rhoda Pulliam at a time prior to the gift aforesaid was in litigation and your Orator and Oratrix availed the result of this controversy which resulted in favor of the title of Rhoda Pulliam. In this contest the rights of your Oratrix and her sisters was not at all involved. So soon as the question of title to said slaves was settled as above an action of controversy was instituted by the defendant and Thomas W. Brooks for his interest in said slaves in which he was non suited upon the ground that such action could not be maintained for an undivided interest in slaves existing in right of a ?fione avvast his wife. This claim though apparently long delayed is one to which your Orator and Oratrix have been always alive and which has always been urged by some of the parties in interest.
At the death of Rhoda Pulliam, Leah had the following children, Ally, Caleb, Hannah, Sarah, Winny, Adam, Melzao and since then, has had Francis and an infant not named. Since the death of Rhoda Pulliam the said slaves have been in the possession of the said Thomas B. Byrd, who however does not claim them in his own right but only as the administrator of his said interest.
Your Orator and Oratrix charge that the hire of these slaves since the death of said Rhoda Pullliam is of the value of Five Hundred and Seventy five dollars per annum.
Your Orator and Oratrix desire that in as much as these slaves have been raised among the relations of your Oratrix and being the gift of a relation have in their estimation a peculiar value and the desire and ask the aid of this court for this specific delivery of said slaves for the purpose of partition between your Orator and Oratrix and her sisters and Thier husband. The aunt of kin of Rhoda Pulliam, who have an interest in the result of this litigation are so far as your Orator knows Fanny Mitchell, living in Alabama, Anna Cooper living in Mississippi, Larkin Pulliam, nephew of said Rhoda Pulliam son of John Pulliam deceased, the next of kin of Charles Fooshe, deceased whose names are not at this moment known to hour Orator and Oratrix and when known they will be ? interest in the bill, Zachariah Gholstein and Benjamin Gholstein, children of Elezabeth Gholstein deceased who live in Georgia.

Notes for ANDREW PULLIAM BROOKS:
1ST REGIMENT RIFLES
Known as Orr's Rifles, was organized at Sandy Springs, South Carolina, in July, 1861. Its members were recruited in the counties of Abbeville, Pickens, Anderson, and Marion. The unit was first stationed on Sullivan's Island and called by the other troops "The Pound Cake Regiment" because of its light duty. Then in April, 1862, it moved to Virginia with 1,000 men. Assigned to General Gregg's and McGowan's Brigade it fought with the army from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor. Later the regiment endured the hardships of the Petersburg trenches and the Appomattox operations. Of the 537 engaged at Gaines' Mill, fifty-nine percent were killed, wounded, or missing. The unit reported 116 casualties at Second Manasses and 170 at Fredericksburg, then lost forty-none percent of the 233 at Chancellorsville and three percent of the 366 at Gettysburg. There were 12 killed and 81 wounded at The Wilderness, 15 killed, 36 wounded, and 44 missing at Spotsylvania, 3 killed and 34 wounded at Deep Bottom, and 9 killed and 37 wounded at Poplar Springs Church. It surrendered 9 officers and 148 men. The field officers were Colonels Daniel A. Ledbetter, James W. Livingston, J. Foster Marshall, George M. Miller, James L. Orr, and James M. Perrin; Lieutenant Colonels William M. Hadden, J. E. Harrison, Joseph J. Norton, and James T. Robertson; and Majors John B. Moore and Leonard Rogers.

July 14, 1863 THE GETTYSBURG CAMPAIGN
What seems to have happened was that in the morning of the 14th, while in pursuit of Lee's army, Buford's division coming from the east and Kilpatrick's from the north approached the position occupied by Heth's division on a ridge about a mile and a half from Falling Waters. Pender's division on a ridge about a mile and a half from Falling Waters. Pender's division lay back of Heth's waiting its turn to march over the pontoon bridge. Kilpatrick arrived a little ahead of Buford. His attack was a complete surprise, and he caught the Confederates, who were tired out from the night's hard march, napping amidst their stacked and unloaded arms. Fortunately for the Southerners Kilpatrick generalship was faulty. He permitted two small squadrons without any supports to rush ahead and make the initial charge, but they only served to alert the enemy without causing him Much harm, except for the loss of General Pettigrew who in the melee received a mortal wound. The Confederates, wielding Thier rifles as clubs and in some instances using fence rails or axes, knocked most of the troopers from their horses and killed or wounded them. Kilpatrick, however, renewed his attack, while Buford struck the Confederates on their right and rear. Before Heth could get this own and Pender's division across the river, they had lost 719 officers and men as prisoners; of these about 230 came from Brockenbrough's' brigade, which had borne much of the fighting, and nearly 200 from Colonel Lowrance's (Scales's) Buford reported he had captured over 500 prisoners, Kilpatrick claimed upwards of 1,500, Meade combined the two and set the figure at 2,000, but Lee admitted the loss of only an indeterminate number of stragglers. However, General Patrick, whose responsibility it was to herd all prisoners, confirmed that Buford's figures were quite accurate. The Yankees might have make an even greater haul of rebels if Kilpatrick had exercised greater control over his men and coordinated his movements with Buford's.

Lucy died from Chronic Nephritis-a chronic inflammation of the kidney. Disease of advanced life, males are more subject than females, heredity seems to have some influence, the disease occurring in some families to the fourth generation. Acute articular rheumatism is sometimes followed by intestitial nephritis, malaria precedes chronic nephritis, chronic lead poisoning and gout may also cause it, mental worry and overwork are not to be overlooked as predisposing causes.

Our Lucy and Mariah Brooks were living with William Thomas Nalley in 1910, William Thomas Nalley's brother had a daughter, Mary Elizabeth Nalley that married Samuel Hunter Brooks.

Cause of death: Pellagra-duration 3 years. Pallagra is avitamin deficiency disease caused by dietary lack of niacin (vitamin B3) and protien. Common in people who obtain most of their food energy from maize. Untreated, the disease can kill within four of five years. In the early 1900s, pellagra reaxhed epidemc proportions in the American South. There were 1,306 reported pellagra deaths in South Carolina during the first ten months of 1915, 100,000 Southerners were affected in 1916, the Spartanburg Pellagra Hospital in Spartanbur, SC was the nations' first facility dedicated to discovering the cause of pellagra. By 1926 Goldberger established that a balanced diet or a small amount of baker's yeast prevented pellagra. Niacin cured pellagra in humans

There were 12 killed and 81 wounded at The Wilderness, 15 killed, 36 wounded, and 44 missing at Spotsylvania, 3 killed and 34 wounded at Deep Bottom, and 9 killed and 37 wounded at Poplar Springs Church.

The grandchildren of Shelton O. and Anna Eugenia Brooks Shore remember Anna telling the story of how her father, Thomas W. Brooks, Jr., was once hiding from Union soldiers and scared them away from the house by dressing himself up as a ghost with a white cotton beard and flour on his face and appearing in an upstairs window. This must have been after he was discharged and sent home. This would mean that the home they were living in Cokesbury had a second floor.

Thomas Warren Brooks, Jr. lived with his daughters for the remainder of his life. He passed away while at the home of his daughter Anner Shore and was buried beside her grave:

Thomas Warren Brooks was called a Captian on the railroad-he was responsible for laying the tracks in all the places that he lived. He wore a watch with a chain made from his mother's hair. When he returned to Greenville, SC and continued to work on the railroads in Ft. Inn, SC, he lost his leg in a railroad accident. He walked with a wooden leg from that time on. His interest in the railroad may have been spurred by the fact that Cynthia Jane Strawhorns' family owned property in Greenwood, SC adjoining the new railroad station. The railroad tracks were being laid in Greenwood County during the time that Warren and Cynthia Jane lived there. The tracks he laid followed the Broad River from Marshall, NC through Fountian Inn, SC.

THE SOUTHERN RAILROAD

Greenwood, SC got its first railroad, the Greenville & Columbia, in 1852 after out-bidding neighboring Laurens in a spirited competition to get the first track in the upstate.
Between 1852 and 1929, Greenwood, SC got five more railroads.
The Greenwood & Augusta
The Piedmont and Northern
The Seaboard Air Line (later merged into the Seaboard Coastline)
Georgia & Florida joined the Greenville & Columbia (later the Southern)

Greenwood, Abbeville, Newberry, McCormick, Edge field, Laurens and other places, big and little in South Carolina were tank towns. That was when the railroads had to store water in huge wooden tanks beside a track, to supply the steam engines.

These grotesque kettles or tubs averaged 15 to 18 feet wide, and almost as deep. They stood on heavy upright timbers. At the bottom edge was a big pipe, like the straight neck of a kettle, long enough to reach across the track. This pipe worked on a hinge, at the bottom, so it could stay straight up against the tank to avoid the engine.

Reunion of Company G Orr's Rifles in Anderson, SC on Sept. 10, 1885

In RE: Carl P. Brooks (Marie Brooks, Guardian)
Dear Mrs. Scott:
We have submitted statement which you have checked over, showing that we recieved $2,054.24 and paid out $1,809.05, leaving a balance due $245.19. We are herewith sending you check for this amount, which you will please hold and disburse as may be directed by you. I think that it would be well to advertise for final discharge. After deducting the commissions to which Miss Brooks is entitled and the Probate Judge's costs, there will be a very samll balance, which could remain in you hands until the boy could be located. I have started a traceer for him and hope to get some information as to his whereabouts. I do not think, however, that this should delay advertising for final discharge by Miss Brooks and when the time comes for granting the discharge, she would be entitled to commissions on the smounts received and disbursed. In other words, we make no claim for any commissions, but these shoud go to her.
Yours very truly,

James Addington of Easley, SC, Pickens County told me that his great grandfather-Preston S. Brooks- was killed a gin boiler explosion. However, after research, I found that it was his great grandfather's brother-John Brooks as found in the Pickens Sentinel who was killed in the gin boiler explosion. James Addington's great grandfather was Preston S. Brooks and I found his grandson-O.P. Brooks- still living in Cornelia, GA where Preston S. Brooks was buried next to his second wife, Martha Jane Shore-his first wife was Martha C. Miller who had a daughter, Martha Eula Brooks that married Robert Posey Addington. O.P. Brooks knew that his father had a half sister somewhere but they could never find her. They were not that far away-in Easley, SC. James Addington's family never knew that thier great grandfather had another family. Preston's brother-Thomas Warren Brooks-was buried only miles away from where Preston was buried-the families never knew they were related.

1876-Nov. 2, Thursday, From the Pickens Sentinel
FATAL ACCIDENT-We have received the sad intelligence, that the boiler of an engine, used in ginning cotton at Easley Station, exploded on Monday last, instantly killing Mr. John Brooks, a worthy young white man, and seriously scalding a colored man. The top of Mr. Brooks head was torn off, and his body blown some distance. We have not learned the cause of the explosion, not any of the particulars of this sad accident.

THE PICKENS SENTINEL- Nov. 9, 1876

Imprisoning Free Voters of a Free State for Partisan Ends

The arrest of free Democratic voters of this County last week, just before the election, was one of the most high-handed proceeding ever known in this County. The object was so apparent that the dullest mind could see through it. The marshals, perhaps, thinking that othello's occupation would soon be gone, were anxious to seize any pretext to make a few greenbacks, and at the same time keep themselves in good order withe their masters. Another reason moving these loyal adherents of Grant, Chamberlain and Company, was doubtless a desire to intimidate the Democrats in the County, and drive back to their ranks those of their party who had renounced it. The whole scheme was infamous to say the least of it and language fails us to denounce the whole proceedings before the U.S. Commissioner, from the Greenville News:
The following free Democratic voters were brought to this city on Wednesday night, under arrest, by Secretary Taft's Marshals, charged with the offense "intimidation and threats:"
Robert W. Holcombe, Preston Brooks, Charles Martin, Kirk Mauldin, William A. Clyde, Easley Station.
William Singleton, David Gilstrap, Pickens.
Johnathan Dark, Elias Holcombe, Liberty
We append the form of warrant for arrest, showing the section under which the indietment is brought, & et.

THE PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION OF PARTIES ARRESTED IN PICKENS COUNTY ON THE CHARGE OF "INTIMIDATION AND THREATS"

The above stated cases was up for preliminary examination before U.S. Commissioner T.M. Wilkes on yesterday. The entire day was taken up in the examination of the witnesses for the government. The Defendants were represented by Mr. Child, of Pickens C.H. Messrs. J. H. Whitner, E. P. Jones, G. G. Wells, M. F. Ansel., W. W. Vance and W. H. Perry of Greenville.
The examination of the witnesses was concluded about 61/2 o'clock P.M., when the Commissioner stated that he would look over the testimony, and make his decision by 10 o'clock.
The weight of the testimony, as adduced by the witnesses on the stand is to the effect, that there was some loud talking by some persons at the meeting held at Pickens Court House on the 28 of October last, but that there was positively no threats, intimidation or violence made or used by any person present that day. The speakers were heard by all persons present, who desired to hear them, an the loud talking was of no great extent than is usual at political meetings of either party. Some of Pickens County testify that there was no threats, intimidation, or violence made, or used, or attempted to be made or used by any one on the ground that day. The witnesses further testify that there were no Arms used or attempted to be used on threat day by any person; and that, with one or two exceptions, there were no arms seen on the ground that day. In our opinion, from the testimony the government has utterly failed to make out her case against either of the parties charged as above-and our idea of the whole matter is simply this: That our political enemies were under the impression that taking the bold step of arresting some of the best citizens of Pickens County, they might intimidate the Democratic voters and keep them away from the polls: but we are glad to say that our Pickens friends wont intimidate worth a cent.
There proceedings are had just in time, as our enemies suppose, to effect their infamous purpose.
When the facts and movies of these federal intimidators are made public, a righteous judgment will consign them to the infamy they deserve.
At 10 o'clock Commission Wildes rendered his decision, discharging six of the parties arrested, and continuing for further examination the others, who are released on giving bond for their appearance when the Commissioner returns. Mr. Wilkes was obliged to return to his post this morning. We are pleased to note the courtesy with which he conducted the examination.
