Willis Carpenter [Male] b. 1788 - d. Byrd Cemetery, Owens Cross Road, Madison Co., AL

Willis Carpenter's grave marker stands beside his wife's stone cairn. Great-great-grandson Larry Carpenter as a child was shown two cairns identified as the graves of Willis and Betsy Ross Carpenter. The other cairn has since disappeared.

Willis Carpenter's mother-in-law, "Grandma Ross," was "buried on the hill overlooking the spring," the first burial in New Hope cemetery. Willis and Elizabeth Ross Carpenter were buried at Byrd Cemetery, near their home, as were son Meshack Meshack, daughter Diana (Dicy) Walls, and others.

Willis Carpenter was a veteran of the Creek War (1813-1814), an extension of the War of 1812, enlisting in the 2nd Regiment, East Tennessee Volunteer Militia, in Captain Thomas Sharp's Company, commanded by Col Lillard, at Rutledge, Tennessee on October 7 (or 14), 1813. One document says Oct. 7 and another says Oct. 14, the same day as Mastin Ross, his brother-in-law. He was honorably discharged at Knoxville, Tennessee on June 10, 1814. From November 1813 through April 1814, he was stationed at Fort Strother in present day St. Clair Co., Alabama.

He married in Grainger County, Tennessee, May 1, 1814, to Elizabeth Ross and moved to Alabama with the Rosses (ref. ALABAMA SOLDIERS by Pauline Gandrud, vol. 4, p. 39). This was about December 1815. They settled close to New Hope, Madison County, 12 miles from the county line of Cotaco County (now Morgan County). Willis and Betsy Carpenter were the parents of 16 children, eight boys and eight girls, thirteen of which lived to adulthood.

Customarily marriage banns were read aloud publicly in church on three consecutive Sundays. Valentine Moulder (1776-1833) was a Baptist Minister and was a Justice of the peace for 40 years. The notice he filed in the Grainger County court is a document that shows permanent creases where it has been folded for nearly 200 years. On the outside: "The Within complied with by me, Valentine Molder."

"The within complied with" may mean that the marriage was performed as well as the thrice reading of the banns as required by law. This would comport with Willis Carpenter's statement that he married on May 1st, probably immediately following the third reading of the banns in church.

May 1, 1814, was a Sunday, and May 3rd was a Tuesday.

HUNTSVILLE ADVOCATE, 13 January 1877: "News from New Hope, Ala.--Willis Carpenter, living near here, is probably the oldest man in the county. He is 99."


There are other conflicting statements in family papers as to the exact ages of Willis and Elizabeth Carpenter, and the censuses are unanimously contradictory. The 1850 census gives their ages as 50 and 48 respectively, while an affidavit dated Sept. 3, 1851, states he was 69 years old.

There are even more conflicting ages for their children. Some researchers say they their sons James Madison and John Charles were born in Tennessee before the family moved to Alabama. Son John Charles Carpenter was born in Alabama in 1812, according to the 1870 census, while most other censuses say 1815 in Tennessee. James Madison Carpenter was born 1814 to 1818 in Alabama according to various censuses; 1816 according to descendants, though his tombstone in Texas says 1814. Their third son, Willis C. Carpenter, was born in Alabama in August 1816. Daughter Diana was born in Alabama in 1819 according to the 1860 census, though most others indicate 1820-21. Thomas was born 13 Feb 1820, though the 1850 census indicates he was 22 (born circa 1828). His second wife also wrote his birthdate as 1828 in her bible.

On Feb. 5, 1821, Willis Carpenter served on a jury panel in Cotaco County (renamed Morgan Co. later in 1821), the earliest documentation of him in Alabama after his 1813-14 war record which shows several months of service were spent at Ft. Strother.

Nov. 8, 1838, he bought 40 acres from George Russell, one of first settlers in New Hope, Madison County, in Sec. 35, Township 5, Range 2 East. He sold this Jan. 16, 1847, to Stephen Hastings.

Willis Carpenter acquired a tract of land in the low gap area of New Hope, known by various names in the early 19th Century to include Clouds Town and Vienna. Descendants today still own this property. On March 5, 1855 he applied for and received bounty land under The Bounty Land Act Of 1855. On Jan. 11,1860, Willis and Elizabeth Carpenter sold this 40.18 acres to their son Thomas Carpenter for $450.00 (Madison County Deed Book CC, p. 403). This was the farm near Byrd Cemetery where granddaughter Hester Vann grew up.

On June 13, 1871 Willis Carpenter applied for a pension under the Act of February 14, 1871.

Elizabeth Betsy Ross [Female] b. 1792 - d. 2 JUN 1866 Byrd Cemetery, Owens Cross Road, Madison Co., AL

Her grave was marked by an ancient cairn.
Some family researchers list her date of death as June 2, 1866 (source not stated).

Betsy Ross Carpenter was the daughter of Francis and Katie Ross according to some family members, based on a confusing family record stating also that Betsy was the sister of Mastin Ross, Sam Ross, and Rita Morrison (ref.,"Alabama Soldiers," by Pauline J. Gandrud & Bobbie J. McLane, vol. 4, p. 39, citing letter from Hester Carpenter Vann, October 1955.) Mastin Ross enlisted in the same company with Willis Carpenter, in Grainger County, Tennessee, during the War of 1812. Documentation clearly proves that Mastin Ross was the son of Charles and Lucy Ross of Grainger County who moved to Morgan County, Alabama, 1815-16 (on record May 11, 1819). Charles Ross was a Revolutionary War soldier from Virginia who returned with son Mastin to Tennessee after Lucy's death. Elizabeth Ross married Willis Carpenter in Grainger County, Tennessee, May 1, 1814, and they were the parents of 16 children. Their eldest daughter Diana was born in Alabama in 1819 according to the 1860 census, though most other censuses say circa 1820, one as late as 1822. On Feb. 5, 1821, Willis Carpenter was recorded in Cotaco County (renamed Morgan Co. later in 1821), the earliest documentation of him in Alabama after his 1813-14 war record which shows several months of service were spent at Ft. Strother.

The Carpenters and Rosses were said to have moved together from Tennessee to Morgan County, Alabama, 1815-16 based on the births of children, though no extant record has been found prior to that of Mastin Ross in Morgan County May 11, 1819 (Cotaco County Superior Court Book 1, pp. 165-66) and the 1821 record of Willis Carpenter referenced above. Charles Ross's 1824 affidavit in his pension file states that his wife, Mastin Ross' mother, had been bedridden for five years prior (1819), inferring that they were in Alabama before her confinement in 1819.

Charles Ross [Male] b. 1759 - d. 1831

Revolutionary War veteran.

He moved to Grainger County, Tennessee, by 1812, and with wife Lucy and son Mastin Ross moved to Cotaco County (now Morgan County) Alabama, about 1815-1816, though the earliest record in Alabama is dated May 22, 1819 (Cotaco County Superior Court Book 1, pp. 165-66, re Mastin Ross). Their daughter Betsy married Willis Carpenter who moved to Alabama with them and is on record in Morgan County on Feb. 5, 1821. The Carpenters moved to New Hope, Madison County, about 12 miles from the Morgan County line. Various later censuses of the Carpenter children show births in Alabama as early as 1814-15.


History of Alabama and Dictionary of Alabama Biography, by Thomas McAdory Owen & Marie Bankhead Owen, vol. 4, page 1463: ROSS, CHARLES, soldier of the American Revolution, aged 85, and a resident of Morgan County; private Virginia Continental Line; enrolled on May 27, 1824, under act of Congress of March 18, 1818, payment to date from April 26, 1824; annual allowance, $96; sums received to date of publication of list, $670.98.óRevolutionary Pension Roll, in vol. xiv. Sen. doc. 514, 23rd Cong., 1st sess., 1833-34.

Revolutionary War Soldiers in Alabama (1910) by Thomas M. Owen, page 106.

Alabama Soldiers by Pauline Jones Gandrud (1978), vol. 4, pp. 34-36, shows Mastin Ross, Rita Ross Morrison and Betsy Ross Carpenter as children of Francis and Katie Ross (sic) from an October 1955 letter from Betsy's granddaughter Hester Carpenter Vann quoting her 89-year-old sister Laura whose memory was excellent in some aspects though apparently confused in other particulars.

Charles Ross returned to Warren County, Tennessee, with his son Mastin Ross (aka Martin Ross) after the death of his wife Lucy.






Charles Ross was born c1859 in Virginia and died 13 March 1831 in Warren Co., Tennessee, according to pension papers. He was a veteran of the American Revolutionary War, serving in the 14th Virginia Regiment, Continental Line, which was raised in western Virginia, and seeing action with the special forces in The Battle Of Stony Point, and in the Siege of Charleston, in which he was captured; he survived 18 months as a prisoner of war on a British troopship and was discharged after the British forces surrendered at Yorktown ending the war. In his senior years, he received a veteran's pension for his military service. He was enumerated in a ledger of payments to U.S. pensioners which shows that he was enrolled at age 85 on 26 April 1824 at the rate of $8 per month while living in Morgan County, Alabama, having moved there from Grainger County, Tennessee, before May 11, 1819, prior to Alabama becoming a state in December 1819.

He appears to be the Charles Ross enumerated in Surry Co. NC in 1790, 1800, & 1810. In 1810, he was next door to Senator Gideon Edwards, father of Meshack Edwards. The Edwards-Franklin home is still standing.

Charles Ross' wife Lucy died in or near Morgan Co., Alabama, 24 April 1827. Carpenter family legend states that Grand-ma Ross, the mother of Betsy Carpenter, Mastin Ross, and Rita Morrison, was the first person to be buried in New Hope Cemetery, twelve miles from the Morgan County line, and that after her death the family moved back to Tennessee. According to his pension file, Charles Ross returned to Tennessee with his son, Mastin. In the 1830 census Charles Ross was evidently the male age 70-80 (and born c1750-1760) enumerated with his son Mastin Ross in Warren Co, TN., where he died in 1831 according to pension record.


WILLIAM ROSS (Revolutionary War pension #41989) "stated he was sixty-six years of age on the 20 March 1821 which would make his birth in 1754. He states after serving two years, he enlisted to serve during the war in the State of NEW JERSEY under Colonel William Davis in his Regiment in the State of VIRGINIA in the Continental Establishment.
Then, he states he hired a man to serve in his place by the name of CHARLES ROSS."

The DAR lists William Ross with pension #41989 as Ancestor Number #A098623 and shows two members descended from him and his wife Sally Lamkin, NSDAR #53318 (Fannie Fisk Hindley) and #70007 (Jessie Hindley Bigford), both through son Jesse Ross and wife Pernina (Carroll). They show William Ross as born 1755 in VA. and died 5 Dec 1831 Wilkes Co., N.C.

On Rootsweb, William's wife is shown as Sally Lampkin. Some are showing him as b. 1755 while others are showing him as b. c1780, the brother of James and John, sons of James Ross and Sarah (Flint) of Chester Co. & Cumberland Co., PA. Obviously two generations are being confused. Which one married Sally Lam(p)kin, the one b. c1754 or the one b. c1780, and was the younger a son or nephew of the elder? James Ross who married Sarah Flint was the son of William Ross Jr. and Jean (Nesbit) Ross, with direct ancestry back to the lairds of Belnagore and Earl Ross.

"A Genealogy of the Nesbit, Ross, Porter, Taggart Families of Pennsylvania" by Blanche T. Hartman (Pittsburgh, PA 1929, privately printed), Page 50, says James Ross (born 1752, Chester Co., PA) entered the Continental Army in 1778 a private in Captain Ligget's Company of Militia, married "about 1790" (sic?) Sarah, daughter of William Flint and had three sons,
James, William, John, died in 1806 in Cumberland co. PA
Will dated 26, 1805 and proved 18 NOV 1806.

Lucy Unknown [Female] b. 1754 - d. 24 APR 1827 Alabama

Wife of Charles Ross of Virginia and Surry County, N.C., Revolutionary War soldier.

They moved to Grainger County, Tennessee, by 1812, and in 1815-16 to the territory that was to become Alabama, settling in Cotaco County (now Morgan County) Alabama. Mastin Ross is on record there dated May 11, 1819 (Cotaco County Superior Court Book 1, p. 165). The Rosses and Carpenters moved together to Alabama. Mastin Ross first had a farm in Morgan County. The Carpenters settled at New Hope, Madison County, about 12 miles from the Morgan County line.

Charles Ross' pension file states in 1824 that Lucy has been bedridden from a vein disease for five years (1819), so apparently she was bedridden not long after arriving in Alabama. She died here April 24, 1827. The Carpenter family history states that Grandma Ross, mother of Mastin Ross, Rita Ross Morrison, and Betsy Ross Carpenter, was the first burial in New Hope Cemetery, and thereafter her husband and the Rosses moved back to Tennessee (1828-29). Son Mastin Ross (aka Maston Ross, Martin Ross) went to Warren County, Tennessee, with his father Charles. Their sister Rita Ross Morrison returned to Tennessee also.

Alabama Soldiers by Pauline Jones Gandrud (1978), vol. 4, pp. 34-36, shows Mastin Ross, Rita Ross Morrison and Betsy Ross Carpenter as children of Francis and Katie Ross (sic) from an October 1955 letter from Betsy's granddaughter Hester Carpenter Vann quoting her 89-year-old sister Laura whose memory was excellent in some aspects though apparently confused in other particulars.

Maston Ross [Male] b. 1791 NC - d. 1854 TN

His name was Maston Ross. He has been incorrectly recorded as Mastin, Masten, Marton & Martin by researchers.

Maston Ross born 1791 NC married Nancy Hodges around 1810. Nancy was the daughter of Thomas Hodges of Grainger Co TN.

Maston Ross and Willis Carpenter enlisted in the War of 1812, at Rutledge, Grainger, Tennessee on 14 Oct 1813. They served in the 2nd Regiment East Tennessee Volunteer Militia in Captain Thomas Sharps Company commanded by Col Lillard during the Creek Indian War. (Maston apparently never applied for Veteran benefits nor did his widow, so we don't have his war records)
Some researchers have Maston (Martin) Ross as the person that enlisted in North Carolina for the War of 1812, This Martin Ross later deserted. This is not Maston (Martin) Ross who enlisted as Masten Ross in Tennessee for the War of 1812.
When Maston was discharged he and family moved to Morgan County Alabama around 1815-1816. Along with his parents Charles & Lucy Ross & Maston's sisters Elizabeth & husband Willis Carpenter also with Rita Ross Morrison & husband.

I can't find any census records for Maston or Nancy in 1860. I believe Nancy moved to Missouri in 1860 with daughter Mary & her children.
I believe Maston died in 1859 1860 in Tennessee which prompted the move to Missouri. It's also possible he died in Livingston County Missouri Where his father Charles did live at one time according to family trees.

Nancy is living with son Charles R. on the 1870 Caldwell County Missouri Census reports.

Edwin Theodore Winkler [Male] b. 13 NOV 1823 Savannah, Chatham Co., GA - d. 10 NOV 1883 Marion, Perry Co., AL

The following is a death notice from a Chicago newspaper.
REV. EDWIN THEODORE WINKLER D.D., L.L.D.
The death of this eminent divine causes great sorrow to a very large circle of friends. Dr. Winkler was North two years ago on an invitation to preach at Toronto and Yonkers, and on the same trip preached at the First Baptist Church in Chicago. In the summer of 1882 he was attacked with bilious malarial fever, which left him weak and from which he never fully recovered. His friends tried to persuade him to rest, but to this he would not consent, and the constant attendance to his duties as pastor and leader aggravated his complaint and hastened his end. He died peacefully and quietly at his home in Marion, Alabama at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, 1883, being sixty years of age lacking three days.
Dr. George B. Eager, of Mobile, preached the funeral sermon. In addition to the general loss which will be severely felt, there are those in Chicago upon whom this bereavement will fall most heavily. His daughter, Mrs. J.M. Love, is a member of Immanuel Baptist church, who, with her family, will have the deep sympathy of all, and especially of those who were acquainted with her lamented father.
The following interesting account of his life appeared in the American Reflector: Dr. E.T. Winkler was born in Savannah, Ga. Nov. 13, 1823; was prepared for college at Chatham Academy of his own city; entered Brown University in 1839, and graduating 1843. The same years he entered Newton Theological Seminary. In 1845 he was assistant editor of the Christian Index, during which time he supplied the pulpit at Columbus, Ga. In 1846 he accepted the pastorate st Albany, Ga., where he remained until called to Gillisonville, S.C. In 1852 he became corresponding secretary of the Southern Baptist Publication Society and editor of the Southern Baptist in Charleston, S.C. In 1854 he accepted the pastorate at the First Baptist Church of Charleston, S.C., and except a long chaplaincy in the Confederate army, continued pastor in Charleston until his removal to Alabama. In 1872 he resigned the pastorate of the Citadel Square Baptist Church, Charleston, and accepted a call to Marion, Alabama. In 1874 the Alabama Baptist was established with Dr. Winkler as editor, which position he held until the paper ceased to be the property of the State Convention, and was removed to Selma. He was president of the Home Mission Board of the Southern
Baptist Convention until its removal to Atlanta, Ga. last year.
Dr. Winkler has a national reputation as a scholar and speaker. He has frequently been invited to preach the anniversary sermons of our leading denominational organizations, North and South. His centennial address before Newton Theological Seminary, in 1876, was a masterly production. His speech before the Southern Baptist Convention, at New Orleans, on the Italian Mission, was one of the best if not the finest production of the age.
He has twice declined calls to a professorship in the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Winkler was distinguished for his scholarly attainments and his dignified and courtly bearing. As a debater, he had few peers. When he arose to address a deliberative assembly, his appearance upon the floor was the signal for silence and attention. He believed in Baptist church policy with all his heart, and brought his masterly powers to its defense whenever such defense was needed. As a writer for newspapers, he was popular in style.

Abigail DeWolfe Turner [Female] b. 16 JUL 1824 Bristol, Bristol Co., Rhode Island - d. 6 JUL 1858 Charleston, Charleston Co., SC

(info provided by Naomi McFadden, #47310768)
The following comes from the minutes of the First Baptist Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Entered into the record on the occasion of the death of Mrs. Abby Turner Howe Winkler, wife of there beloved Pastor. Whereas it has pleased the Almighty God of human events, to remove from the scene of her labors, her family, and her friends--and from her position in the Church Militant, our Beloved Sister, although the event so unexpected came upon us like an electric shock in the midst of a serene sky, it found her like a faithful soldier, fully prepared with her armor on. The principles of Christianity which were so strikingly manifested in her walk and conversation through life served as "an anchor to her Soul both sure and steadfast" in the trying hour of death. Child like and submissive she resigned her spirit into the hands of her God, and has left a bright example to the church of the efficacy of our holy religion. Like the orb of day, more mildly effulgent at its setting, it may with strict truth be said, "The day of her death was better than the day of her birth". Therefore be it resolved; That in the death of Sister Winkler this church has suffered an irreparable loss. That we bow with submission and resignation to this dispensation of Providence and rejoice to know that our loss is her eternal gain. On a visit to the First Baptist Church in Charleston, South Carolina in 1999 I was gratified to find a monument to Mrs. Abby Turner Winkler, it reads as follows; In memory of Abby Turner Winkler, who died July 6 1858, aged 34 years, A dutiful daughter; a faithful friend, a fond wife and mother; a woman whose personal loveliness was surpassed only by her pure and generous nobility of spirit, here sleeps in Jesus. The monument is the most beautiful and well maintained in the cemetery and is located right in front of the gates to the left of the church entrance. She was married to Edwin Theodore Winkler who died in Marion, Perry County, Alabama. Edwin's father was Shadrach Winkler, memorial #41155659.

Inscription:
In memory of Abby Turner Winkler, who died July 6th, 1858, aged 34 years. A woman whose personal coveliness was surpassed only by her pure & generous nobility of spirit. Here sleeps in Jesus. She was a dutiful daughter, a faithful friend, a fond wife and mother.
