3265 William Samuel Singletary e-mail:

I just spoke with my Daddy and he remembers Aunt Birdie well he said she used to come and stay with them from time to time. He told me, about the time his youngest brother Herschel fell on the wood stove and burned his face really bad and how they went and got Aunt Birdie to talk the fire from his face. He said she sat behind the stove in a chair holding Herschel who was around 4 or 5 at the time and kept mumbling something all day and most of the night. Within a couple of days he was good as new and it left no scars.

3266 William W. Hatcher Sr: <> provides the following information

BIO:HE WAS EXECUTOR FOR HIS FATHER'S ESTATE. MENTIONED SEVERAL TIMES IN MISCELLANOUS ESTATE RECORDS OF Crawford County GA.. NO FURTHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE AFTER 1880 CENSUS. THERE IS A CEMETERY LOCATED ON WHAT IS COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE ROWELL PLACE OFF OAK GROVE CHURCH ROAD IN THE NORTH WEST SECTION OF CRAWFORD COUNTY. SEVEN GRAVES ARE MARKED BUT NO LAST NAMES; DANIAL, MATTIE (WATTIE?), SUSIE, FATHER & E. R., MOTHER AND P.R., EMILY F. WIFE OF W.C. SMITH. FATHER & E. R. SHOULD BE EDWARD ROWELL, MOTHER & P.R. IS PROBABLY EDWARD'S WIFE PENELOPE SANDERS ROWELL SINCE THEY ARE BURIED SIDE BY SIDE.THERE ARE INDICATIONS OF OTHER GRAVES. ONE OTHER GRAVE IS MARKED WITH SMALL STONE WITH INITIALS A. W. (ADDENDUM) WHEN I FIRST VIEWED THIS CEMETERY IN ITS SAD STATE, MY REASONING FOLLOWED THAT OF THE INDIVIDUAL WHO HAD AUDITED IT SOME YEARS EARLIER. LIKE THAT INDIVIDUAL, I THOUGHT THE STONES IDENTIFYING FATHER AND MOTHER AND E.R. AND P.R. WERE SEPARATE GRAVES. AFTER CLEARING AND CLEANING THIS CEMETERY RECENTLY (SEPTEMBER 20/21 1996), I AM CONVIENCED THAT THESE STONES ARE THE HEAD AND FOOT STONES OF THE SAME GRAVES OF EDWARD AND PENELOPE SANDERS ROWELL. ALSO, WE WERE ABLE TO RETRIEVE A BROKEN PIECE OF OF WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE A FOOT STONE WITH THE INITIALS A. W. I BELIEVE THIS IS THE GRAVE OF ALBERT HARRISON WELLONS WHO DIED IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES. IN THE 1832 Georgia LAND LOTTERY, HE HAD A FORTUNATE DRAW AND DREW LAND LOT 185 IN THE 10TH DISTRICT, SECOND SECTION, OF THEN CHEROKEE COUNTY; NOW GILMER COUNTY. FOR THE SUM OF $18, HE COULD REGISTER HIS CLAIM WITH THE STATE AND RECIEVE A WARRANT WHICH WOULD GIVE HIM TITLE THE PROPERTY. HE WAS NOT REQUIRED TO LIVE ON OR TILL THE PROPERTY. HE COULD DO WITH IT AS HE PLEASED. I DO NOT KNOW THE DISPENSATION OF THIS PIECE OF PROPERTY. IN HIS FATHER'S WILL HE WAS TO RECIEVE 'ALL OF MY LAND LYING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BIG CREEK'. HE SURRENDERED THIS PROPERTY TO
HIS BROTHER EDWARD IN 1871 AFTER THEIR MOTHER DIED.
ON OCT 1, 1849, HE PURCHASED FROM JOHN BENTLEY 108 ACRES OF THE EASTERN HALF OF LAND LOT 45 IN THE SECOND DISTRICT OF CRAWFORD COUNTY FOR THE PRINCELY SUM OF $220. ON THE 6TH OF JANUARY 1874, SHERIFF A. J. PRESTON SOLD AT PUBLIC OUTCRY TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER THE SOUTH EASTERN CORNER OF LAND LOT 45 IN THE SECOND DISTRICT BY VIRTURE OF AN EXECUTION ISSUED BY THE JUSTICE COURT OF SAID COUNTY IN FAVOR OF E. BOND & CO. J. G. COLBERT WAS THE HIGHEST BIDDER AND PAID $21 FOR THE PROPERTY ON OCTOBER 8TH, 1882, JAMES W., T. E., AND E. L. ROWELL SOLD THEIR INTEREST IN THE REMAINING FIFTY ACRES TO THEIR SISTER, SARAH E. WHITTINGTON, FOR THE SUM OF $10. SINCE I HAVE NO OTHER INFORMATION ON DANIEL AFTER 1880 WHEN HE WAS LISTED AS BEING 72 YEARS OLD, I THINK IT WOULD BE SAFE TO ASSUME THAT HE DIED IN 1882.
HE PROVIDED FOUR SONS FOR WAR BETWEEN THE STATES, ONLY TWO OF WHOM WOULD RETURN HOME; AND BOTH OF THEM SEVERLY CRIPPLED FOR LIFE.

Family members remember "Bill Dick" as an active man who derived his living from farming, saw milling and syrup making. The cane syrup that he made and bragged was the best in the State was sold under the label of "Bill Dick's Best Cane Syrup". In 1911, the " Cairo Messenger" newspaper, reported that "Bill Dick" sent a 68 1/2 pound water melon to Congressman S. A. Roddenbury in Washington, D.C. Congressman Roddenbury in turn gave it to President Taft who reported that the melon became a " curiousity in the White House". In a thank you note, the President wrote, "the reputation of the Georgia watermelon for luciousness and flavor hasn't suffered a bit from consumption of the sample you sent by Mr. Hiles, Major Butt and my self. The "Cairo Messenger" noted, "since Bill Singletary only grows Democratic melons, it will do the Republicans good and Grady County is in the front". In 1915, "Bill Dick" built a large home on the Cairo - Thomasville Highway (Hyw. 84) which was later lost in the "Great Depression", c. 1930, with his other properties. The house had a cedar shake roof and collumns that circled the entire house to the rear. The house still stands today (1984), although altered from the original design. It is currently known as the Stringer Place and is located adjacent to Pierce Chapel on Highway 84 in Pine Park, Georgia.

Revolutionary Soldier Joseph E. Singletary, Pension # S47849.

In the fall of 1777, Joseph and his brother, Josiah, were recruited as substitutes into the Bladen County Militia commanded by Col. Thomas Brown (later General). Joseph was a substitute for William Harrison while Josiah substituted for their uncle, Benjamin FitzRandolph of which both had been drafted for an expedition against a force of Tories which had taken positions along the South Carolina state line in then Bladen CO., NC. After a months service they were disbanded and returned home.

In 1778, Capt. Jared Irwin raised a troop of light horse (cavalry) in Bladen Co., NC in which Joseph and Josiah became volunteers. In the same year, Col. Thomas Robeson also raised a troop of light horse in the County. The two companies of cavalry sometimes took the field together with Col. Robeson in command but generally they acted as separate units alternating time in the field. Both of these companies were involved in numerous skirmishes.

On June 6, 1781 both companies of cavalry under the command of Col. Robeson, became engaged with a large Tory force led by Col. Hector NcNeil at Stewart's Mill on Rockfish Creek. In the ensuing battle Joseph was "severly wounded by a broadsword in several places and disabled in one leg in consequence of having been trod upon by horse". It further states in his pension application "Said Singletary lay three or four months, severly wounded, at the house of the mother of this deponent". The deponent was either Susannah Harrison or Susannah McRee.

Joseph can be identified in the 1800 and 1810 Census in Bladen Co., NC. He is found in Leon Co., Flordia in 1830. The 7th of May, 1836 he sold his land in Leon Co., FL. On May 21, 1836,13 days after Joseph sold his Florida property, his son, Josiah Singletary, bought land in Thomas Co., Georgia.
There is no record of Joseph owning any land in Georgia. He lived with his daughter, Nancy, and son, Josiah, although Joseph is listed as head of household in the 1840 Census.

In June of 1837, Joseph's agent in Tallahassee, FL. informed the Commissioner of Pensions in Washington,D.C. of the change of address to Thomas Co. GA.
Joseph was a charter member and Deacon of the Popular Springs Primitive Baptist Church formed August 14, 1837 and whose Minister was his old friend the Elder William Hawthorn. Joseph and Elder Hawthorn were both past Ministers of the Big Swamp Primitive Baptist Church in Bladen Co., NC.
The church minutes give the date of his death as April 14, 1844. In the July 1844 term of the Inferior Court of Thomas County, Letters of Administation were granted to Josiah Singletary, his son, to administer the estate of Joseph. After an inventory and appraisal, the following items were sold:
1. one mare and colt.
2. one horse cart.
3. 3 cows, 3 yearlings, 1 calf.
4. 1 handmill.
5. 3 ploughs, 1 pr. trace chains and harness.
6. 1 feather bed, 2 chairs.
7. 1 pot, 1 oven, 1 spider, 2 kettles.
8. Jugs, 5 bottles, 1 churn, shoe box, etc.
9. 2 tin pans, 1 coffee pot, 1 dish, 4 plates, 1 candlestick.
10. 2 pitchers, 3 knives and forks, 1 looking glass.
11. 2 measures, half-bushel, candle moulds.
12. 1 lot of books.
13. 3 axes, 4 hoes, 1 hatchet, handsaw, square, drawing knife.
14. 5 barrels, 3 staves.
15. 1 grindstone.
16. 2 washing tubs, 1 pot stand.
17. 1 earthen bowl, 1 seive, 1 pr. cotton cards.
