1848 Odd Fellow of the Day William H. Jenkins

Today we are remembering William H. Jenkins, entry number 3 in the 1848 Ledger Book for the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Washington Lodge #5.

The first entry is dated January 1, 1848 and includes payments for quarterage and the Orphans Fund.  The final entry is dated July 1, 1854.  It looks like in January 1851 he incurred some Lodge fine and something called "Encampment".

At the bottom of the entries it says:
"Expelled for Intoxication" and is not dated but I would assume it occurred sometime in 1854 since that's the last time he paid into the Lodge and Orphans Fund.

Expelled for Intoxication

In the 1870 Census, District 7, of Weakley County there is a W.H. Jenkins, age 56 and a physician, living with Mary Jenkins, age 35, and Vandela Jenkins, age 9 months. It says all of them were born in Tennessee.

If you know this William H. Jenkins drop me a note.  Maybe we can fill in more about him and bring his story back to life.

Another Grand Victorian, ca 1905

If you think Moran Place is beautiful then this Victorian will knock your socks off.  We think it was the original home of Ida Moran and William G. Timberlake and was probably one of George Barber's Victorian designs.  I had actually come across a smaller not nearly as clear photo of this home with a woman standing on the porch.  Where the other picture was small and grainy, this picture is just perfect.  If you look closely you can see that it was actually snowing the day the photographer snapped this image.  I would love to have seen this home decorated at Christmas.

Kent remembers stories of the Timberlakes having a Victorian home in Madison County Tennessee.  Later, they moved into Jackson and lived at 399 Highland which is still there today and is home to a design firm.  We think the home in Jackson might also be a George Barber design.  The photo's of the interior of the home on Highland are just amazing.  They have a ghostly feel to them and just looking at the grand piano I can almost imagine Teatot (Ida's nickname) playing a waltz.

Kinchen Killebrew and a Cast of Many

We found genealogical information regarding the KILLEBREW's.  Giving the information a quick look I can see a few connections between the KILLEBREW's and the MORAN family.     HENDERSON, KENNEDY, IRVINE, HART and BONDURANT are surnames that appear as leaves on the MORAN family tree. There are probably others that I'm not aware of.

I also noticed that James KILLEBREW married Nancy FRIZELL.  In the 1848 Ledger Book of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows of Dresden Tennessee there is a Thomas B. FRIZELL listed in the entry section below William LANDRUM's information. Are Nancy and Thomas related?

Please remember the following information was not compiled by us.  Take the information with a grain of salt and if you incorporate it into your own genealogy, you will probably want to verify it's accuracy.

          Martha Ann b: 1841
                             m: Thomas LeRoy KILLEBREW

I have found a Kinchen KILLEBREW living in the edge of Henry County; later he appeared to have moved over into Weakley County.  I believe he is Kinchen, Jr.; a son of the Revolutionary soldier, Kinchen KILLEBREW, whose two daughters married the two KENNEDY brothers, Sampson and Nelson.  I do not know who this Kinchen, Jr., married but his Will is in the Dresden Court House, dated 1824, in which he mentions his children, Malinda, Levi and Elias.  The 1850 Census of Henry co. gives the date of birth for Levi 1803, and Levi's wife, Kittura, born 1808.  The Will of Elias is dated 1835 and he mentions his wife, Matilda, but does not list his children.  Do not confuse this Kinchen KILLEBREW with the son of James KILLEBREW by the same name.  He married Louisa BUCKLEY and after her death married the Widow PENTECOST who was Susan KENNEDY.

1848 Odd Fellow of the Day William Landrum

I want to preface this post by saying that William LANDRUM is not the only LANDRUM listed in the Odd Fellows book.  In addition, there is a page for Samuel LANDRUM and W.P. LANDRUM which will be covered in later posts.

I don't really want to get into trying to figure out the genealogy of every person listed in the 1848 Ledger Book although goodness knows I do try! So I'll tell you what I find from a brief search and I hope that other people might stumble onto the page and say hey, that person is my great great uncle.  And then maybe they'll send me some biographical information to add to the post.

Having said all that...

I found a William LANDRUM listed in the 1850 Slave Census for Weakley County Tennessee.  He must've been very well off because he owned 27 slaves at that time.  In addition, I found a William LANDRUM living in the household of William P. LANDRUM in the 1870 Census for Dresden Tennessee.  The elder William is 58 years old, meaning he would've been born about 1812, and it said he was born in Virginia.  William P. LANDRUM was 32 years old and born in Tennessee.  The occupation for both LANDRUM s is "grocer".  Which begs me to wonder is William P. the son of the elder William?    Is William P the W.P. LANDRUM listed on another page of the Odd Fellows Ledger Book?  I would think so but can't be certain.  Also, I ran across a few genforum posts that indicated William LANDRUM had a son named Samuel.  Is that Samuel the same Samuel listed in the Odd Fellows Book?

One other interesting note, William LANDRUM lives in dwelling number 359 in the 1870 census.  Living just down the road in dwelling number 355 are B.D. IRVINE, his wife Agnes Moran, their brood of children and also John Williamson Moran and his aunt, Eliza Moran.

Small world.

The top part of the ledger page was devoted to William LANDRUM.  Beneath appears to be transactions of the lodge entered by the bookkeeper.

I don't know what all of the transactions are for but here are the names mentioned:

At the bottom it says "This settlement was made June 14th/51 by H.C. McCUTCHEN & E.J. WHITE as Committee appointed by the Lodge & the Order was filled and given to Bro Landrum... $326.39

J.W. Moran's Wallet 1904

What I know about the wallet, the calling card and the photo:

1.  This wallet belonged to J.W. Moran because his name and the date January 15 1904 are written inside.

2.  It came from Latham, Alexander & Co. Bankers on 10 & 18 Wall St. New York.  It's printed on the inside cover as you can see above.  You can also see where a critter started nibbling on the wallet.

3.  The Calling Card belonged to Mrs. Elmer Clinton Sharp.  It says "Mrs. Elmer Clinton Sharp" and written in pencil is "Mr. &, son & daughter in law of Sam Sharp Corinth Miss".  That same critter took a few bites out of the calling card as well.

4.  On the back of the card is pencilled "Have to leave on 2:30 C & O Train, E.C. Sharp"

5. The only other item included is this picture of a man that was taken in Nashville Tenn.  The photographer's information is on the back of the photo but there is water damage so I don't know who the photographer was, only that it was in Nashville.

In a perfect researcher's world it would be wonderful to say that the man is obviously Elmer Clinton Sharp since his card was found with the photograph in the wallet.  Unfortunately a lot of time has passed and there's no way for us to know if the card and photo go together or if someone down the years just placed them inside the wallet and trundled them to the attic with most of the other items we have.  

It does seem that the Sharp family was special to J.W. Moran because he had a picture of Major Samuel Sharp (Elmer's father) and a picture of  Ida May Sharp (Elmer's daughter).     Major Sam Sharp was also a comrade in arms of the Civil War.  Another interesting item, at least to me, is that one of Sam's grandsons was named Carl Moran Sharp.  Coincidence?

1848 Odd Fellow of the Day Samuel A. Warner

Samuel A. Warner is the first name posted in the 1848 Independent Order of the Odd Fellows, Washington Lodge, No. 5, of Dresden, Weakley County, Tennessee

On January 1, 1848 he paid .75 for his Quarterage and .25 to the Orphans Fund.

I believe that Samuel Warner is the brother of Mears Warner, the commissioner who came to Weakley County in 1828 and surveyed the land to lay out the town of Dresden.  The Warner's were of German descent and it was Mears who named the town Dresden in honor of his German roots. In addition, I found a Samuel A Warner was one of the first members of the bar in Dresden TN and also Postmaster for a time.

Drop me a message if you know more about Samuel A Warner.  I'll be happy to add any biographical information that you have for him.

1908, The Two hams & Confederate Memories

Warner T. BOLLING received his Doctor of Divinity and became a distinguished member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South and an author having written The Church and the Saloon in the 1890's.  He was born in Greene County Alabama and died in 1913 in Memphis Tennessee. He served on the side of the Confederacy during the Civil War and saw action in many campaigns including Shiloh, Perrysville, Chickamauga, Franklin and the Atlanta Campaign.  Rev. Bolling kept up with his friends from the Civil war, as this letter to J.W. Moran shows, and was a member of the United Confederate Veteran's Association. From an obituary we learn he was first married to Mary Coley of Milan Tennessee (on the marriage application her name was Mary E. Pearce) and after her passing he married Willie R. Jeter who was born in Virginia.  During the last 8 years he enjoyed being a correspondent for the Commercial Appeal in Memphis.  A more detailed account of his life can be found on his Rev. Bolling's memorial.

W.T. BOLLING was a good friend of J.W. MORAN and an old comrade from the Civil War. In addition, the two men had their faith in common both being members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.  This letter was written in 1908 and shows how much the War between the States continued to dwell on the minds and in the lives of those who served.

Paris Tenn
5/14/008 (sic)

Dear Bro Moran:

The two hams safe to hand, I did not dream of your giving them to me, but I am not mad about it.  They are fine enough to get two disapproved furloughs on, and as I eat them I shall think of the old days gone, and of the comradeship which remains true in spite of years.

I had a pleasant letter to-day from an old comrade of the 12th Tennessee, and it was so true and pleasant that I almost cried as I read it.  Give my love to the family and to all old friends.

Yours Cordially
W.T. Bolling

1848 Washington Lodge No. 5 IOOF Dresden TN

Cover page
Washington Lodge No. 5, IOOF
Dresden Weakley County Tennessee
Opened The 1st Jany AD 1848 by
Eaton J. White
Scroll down to see a list of the 322 members of the Lodge.

I love books. Particularly old books.   I love the way they feel in my hands, the smell of the paper, dust jackets, and illustrations.  I love the way they look on shelves.  And yes, I spent about 17 years of my professional life working in libraries which fed into my affinity for the printed word.

Since our focus was to preserve the history of Moran Place and the Moran family it was only natural to save as  many books as possible. We have everything from school books to books on parlor games which probably came in handy since Moran Place had a beautiful front parlor.  Some of the books were ledgers, after all the Moran's owned the Dresden Bank so ledgers were their bread and butter.  But not everything we saved was about the Moran family.

Cover of the Ledger

One book that we have is from 1848, it's the ledger book for The Washington Lodge No. 5, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Dresden, Weakley County, Tennessee beginning with the First of January 1848.  The Bookkeeper on that date was Eaton J. White.  According to The Official History and Literature of Felloship: The Three Link Fraternity the Washington Lodge No. 5 began on September 9 1842 in Dresden.

Unlike many of the books we have, The Ledger is not a book about the Moran family at all, although you will find Moran relatives in the book as well as many well known Weakley County Tennessee family names.  The Ledger had been in the possession of James H. Moran IV.  Back in the 1970's James Moran had the book binding professionally restored and it was because of him that the Ledger survives today.  

Emerson Etherage (Etheridge)

One very prominent Dresdenite who was a member of the Odd Fellows was Emerson Etheridge, although in the ledger his name is misspelled as Etherage.  Etheridge was born in North Carolina and moved with his parents to Tennessee in 1931.  He was a practicing attorney with his office located in Dresden TN.  He was elected to the TN House of Representatives.  He was later elected to the United States House of Representatives and in 1861 gave a speech opposing secession. In 1867 he had an unsuccessful bid for governor of Tennessee but went on to have successful election to the Tennessee Senate.

You can see where Etheridge paid his "quarterage" fees and also gave money to the Orphans Fund.

William H. Jenkins
The Odd Fellows were serious about not breaking rules and were not above expelling members who were caught committing offenses.  One such person was William H. JENKINS.  At the bottom of his ledger page it says he was "Expelled for Intoxication".  It doesn't indicate he was readmitted but it was possible for a member to redeem themselves and be an active member once again.

I think this will probably be the first of many posts regarding this Ledger book. This book is full of names and even some death dates so the information might be of some use to others who are researching their Weakley County ancestors.

Here is a complete list of the 322 names as they appear in the Ledger.  Should you find one that you're interested in let me know and I'll scan the page for you  The book begins at 1848 and goes through the late 1870's.  Because the penmanship is so different from modern writing I may have misinterpreted some of the initials.  Let me know if you see an error.  Additional research is indicated in italics.
