Thomas Dudley Savage, born October 6, 1813, married Martha Webb in 1842. Martha was the daughter of Micajah and Harriet Benson Webb. The notes of Lizzie Webb of Williamston, S.C., indicate that Thomas and Martha Savage moved to Florida.

The Family of Thomas D. Savage

Thomas D. Savage was the son of James and Mary Savage of the Union District of South Carolina. James, born in Union District in 1775, married Mary Rodgers in 1797. Mary was born in 1778. Her father was Nathaniel Rodgers, Sr.

James and Mary Savage had 370 acres on Hughes Creek. Ten children were born there.

Mary died in 1838. The same year, James is found with his son John in Fayette, Alabama, and later that year in Benton County, Alabama.

Micajah and Harriet Benson Webb were in Benton County at time, having come from Anderson, S.C. It was probably here that Martha Webb met and married Thomas D. Savage.

Thomas D. Savage was given power of attorney by his father to sell the land, slaves, and stock in Union District, South Carolina.

The family Bible of James Savage is in the posession of Mr. Will Moon of Piedmont, Alabama. It records the birth of twelve children. All the children of James Savage moved to Alabama and died there, except two that died young in South Carolina, James and Robert.

James Savage died in Benton County (now Calhoun), Alabama in 1841.

The Savage children were:

James -- born 1798.

Josiah or Josh -- born 1800.

Benjamin -- born 1802.

John -- born 1803.

Martha -- born 1806.

Catherine -- born 1808.

Robert -- born 1811.

Thomas Dudley -- born 1813.

Mary -- born 1816.

Jane -- born 1820.

James -- born 1823.

William -- born 1827.

Daughter Jane married Thomas M. Gabbot.

Daughter Catherine married John R. Davis. Their daughter, Martha Catherine was born in 1860. She married Thomas Moon, the grandfather of Will Moon of Piedmont, Alabama.

The son named John married Mary Strong in 1828 in Fayette County, Alabama. Mary had been born in 1809 in Clark County, Georgia. She was the daughter of Elijah Strong and Polly Matthews of Georgia. John and Mary both died in 1884 and are buried in the Savage Family Cemetery.

John and Mary had eight children.

Emily -- 1830-1916

Jasper -- born 1832 -- moved to Mississippi and was killed when a storm hit a church he was attending!!

Susan Margaret -- 1835-1910. She married Sherriff Francis Marion Craine of Fayette County.

Temple Franklin (Dock) -- born 1837. He joined the Union Army during the Civil War, which made him unwelcome at home after the war. He moved to Lamar County, Alabama, near the Mississippi line.

John Harry -- born 1840. Died in 1841.

Charlotte Jane (Lottie) -- 1842-1920. She married Mordecai D. Wilkes.

Dudley Thomas -- 1844 -- 1907. He married Rizpah Stillman.

Boswell Zachra Taylor -- born 1847. He married Nancy Doughty. He served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. From 1894-1895 he represented Fayette County in the state legislature. He was also a Justice of the Peace. Dr. Victor Savage (1866-1954) was one of their six children.

Captain John Savage of the Union District

Captain John Savage of the Union District was in the American Revolution. He is often referred to as Captain John Savage in county records. He married Sarah (Palmer) Jolly (1752-1838). Her husband, John Jolly, had been killed during the Revolution. She had four children by Jolly and six or seven by John Savage.

John Savage died in the Union District of South Carolina in 1812. His will named his wife, Sarah, and children named William, Joshua, John, Anne, Sarah, Rebecca, and Margaret. Robert Savage was a witness to the will.

John Savage, Jr., moved to Mississippi. William S. Savage remained in the Union District and died in 1854 at the age of 70. He married Martha Gregory. They had sons named John, Benjamin, and Abram.

This information was from family histories posted in the Union County Family History Book. The research is not mine.

Martha Webb, who married Thomas D. Savage, was the sister of my great grandfather, John B. Webb, who moved from Attala County, Mississippi, to Yell County, Arkansas, by the 1870 census.
