In Reply to: COATES, TALLENTS, ROPERS...HELP! by Mary M. Holland of 736


1. Isaac Wilborn COATES was born in 1840 in Yancey County, North Carolina. He died on 19 September 1863 in Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia.

He was married to Rebecca (COATES) in 1859. Rebecca (COATES) was born about 1835 in North Carolina. She died after 1895 in Towns County, Georgia. She was buried in Macedonia Cemetery, formerly Jameson Cemetery, Hiawassee, Georgia.

Rebecca (maiden name unknown) Coates was born about 1835 in North Carolina. She and her husband Isaac (b. 1839 in N.C.), a shoemaker, were first listed in the 1860 census of Towns County with two children: Margarette, born 1858 in Georgia and Josiah, born 1859 in Georgia. During the Civil War, Isaac Coates enlisted in Company A, 6th Georgia Cavalry and is presumed to be a battle casualty since he never returned home. Rebecca received a Confederate Widow's pension in her old age for his service.

Rebecca Coates was enumerated in the 1870 Towns County census with Margaret D. (1858), Isaac W. (1863), and Linton (1866), all born in Georgia.

Rebecca Coates was enumerated in the 1880 Towns County census as follows: Margaret (1858), Willborn (1864), Linton Jameson (1866), and Laura Jameson, granddaughter (1879).

Rebecca Coates lived in Macedonia and was Col. S. Y. Jameson's (1806-1879) housekeeper. On Dec. 3, 1878, three months before he died, Samuel Young Jameson (1806-1879) deeded the land now known as the Mont Wilson farm to Rebecca Coates for the support and maintenance of herself and minor child Linton. On May 1, 1886 Linton Jameson and Rebecca Coates together sold the land to M. J. and T. J. Turpin.

On April 21, 1881 Linton Jameson and Nancy Lavinia "Vina" Stroud, daughter of John Oliver Stroud and Sarah Tanner, were married by A. A. Nicholson, JP. Mr. W.R. McConnell, administrator of the estate of S.Y. Jameson (1806-1879), had a cabin built for them out of the Jameson estate. (This cabin is the original part of the Ed Rogers home.) Linton and Vina Jameson had four children: Phineas, Ernest Samuel, Carrie, and Ella.

Linton Jameson owned a store and operated a government licensed "still." Becoming of age, he sold much of his inherited property in late 1880's. Shortly after 1890 he disappeared and was never heard of again. His wife, Vina Stroud Jameson, sold out and bought a team of horses and wagon. Having sewed her money into her petticoat for safekeeping, she moved to McDowell County, N.C. near relatives. She married a man be the name of Collins from Union County. He adopted the children and they took the Collins name.

Towns County marriage records indicate that Margaret Coates married Jordan Briggs on Jan. 19, 1873. Another entry indicates that Margaret Coates married Jasper Parton on May 5, 1881. (By Jerry A. Taylor) Isaac Wilborn COATES and Rebecca (COATES) had the following children:
