From an email from Priscilla Clark

They were next stopped at Bush Hill in Randolph County half way between

Trinity College and High Point , NC .  Here they fell in ranks for the last

time 2 May 1865 , disbanded and returned home.

CONFEDERATE SOLDIER

J. Stanley Smith was enlisted by Colonel Mallett on either 10 or 18

August 1864 at at Camp Holmes near Raleigh , NC and served with the North

Carolina Junior Reserves, Company "F" 71st Regiment also known as the

Second Junior Reserves.  His name appeared on the Company F Muster Roll

of 31 August 1864 and on a list of a Confederate Soldiers reunion in

Monroe , NC 4 July 1903 . He apparently served until 2 May 1865 when the

unit disbanded. According to Mary Jane Ledbetter (my mother) he and

Daniel Dry, with Ethyl Jane Ledbetter as their sponsor, attended a

Confederate Veterans Reunion in New Orleans , LA about 1920.

 

This Regiment's organization began about 31 May 1864 at Camp Holmes near

Raleigh , NC . It was then ordered to Goldsboro on 2 June 1964 where

Captain T.C. Rowland's company was added on 15 June 1864 . They next went

to Weldon , NC   where organization was completed 7 December 1864 .  On 8

December 1864 it was ordered to Belfield , VA where they repelled Warrens '

Corps. They were sent next to Coleraine (Colerain), on the Chowan River

to meet an expected enemy advance which did not occur. They were next

ordered to Goldsboro , thence to about 4 or 5 miles south of Kinston along

South West Creek at Wise's Forks where they drove back an enemy advance

from New Bern ( Battle of South West Creek) on 8 March 1865 . About 11

March 1865 they marched through Kinston and Goldsboro on to Smithfield

where they joined up with General Joseph E. Johnston's Army.  On the

night of 18 March 1865 they encamped just beyond Bentonville and the next

day were involved in the Bentonville Battle where they fought for three

days and retired to Mitchener's depot.

 

Johnston 's army retreated on 10 April 1865 and passed through Raleigh 12

April and encamped about 12 miles west of the city.

BOOKS

Mary Jane Ledbetter has given me (W. Richard Crotwell ) the following

books that belonged to John Stanley Smith.

 

Social Etiquette or Manners and Customs of Polite Society, by Maude C.

Cooke.  The publishers name is not indicated, however one page contains

the following " Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1896 by

J. R. Jones, In the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington ,

D.C. All Rights Reserved."  Mother Mary tells me (W. Richard Crotwell ) he

bought this book so he would know proper and correct polite proceedures

and manners at events such as weddings. Since he was a Justice of The

Peace he often was responsible such occasions and desired to see they

were correctly administered. The table of contents indicates the

following subjects; Miscellaneous Entertainments; Christenings,

Confirmations And Graduations; Etiquette of Funerals And Mourning;

Etiquette of Public Places; Walking, Riding Boating Driving; Bicycle

Etiquette; Club Etiquette; Society; General Etiquette; Washington

Etiquette; Delsartean Discipline; Art of Dress; Colors And Complexions;

Dress For Special Occasions; Letter Writing; Forms For Letters; Artistic

Home Decorations; and How To Be Beautiful.  The book has 506 pages. The

cover is blue and gray and includes a picture of ladies and gentlemen in

formal dress.  One Lady sits on a piano stool and is playing a piano.

Two men in tuxedos stand next to the piano and one appears to holds a

book of sheet music. Judging from the book's condition it has been used a

lot.

Carolinas Genealogical Society Bulletin of Monroe , N.C. , XL, Il, Summer,

2003-2004.  Pages 6 through 17 contain excerpts from the Parish Book of

St. Paul 's Episcopal Church, Monroe , N.C. , 1874-1974 (the same article

indicates that this is "The first St. Paul's Episcopal Church,

1885-1911." Under the heading "CONFIRMATIONS" is included the following:

1880 - John E. Smith sold land to John Stanley Smith.

BIBLE: He wrote birth, marriage, and death information in what I call the

John Stanley Smith family bible.  It includes some of the Austin family.

From the J. Stanley Smith Bible:

Great Grand Father Bryant Austin and Some of his Family.

Grand Father Bryant Austin.

Grand Uncle Jacob Austin.

Grand Uncle Jonathan Austin.

Grand Aunt Alcy(?) Austin .

Grand Aunt Sallie Austin.

Grand Aunt Rebecca Austin.

Unfortunately, even though the Austin contemporaries and cousins  of Jane

have their children listed, none are shown on her and J.  Stanley Smith.

This leads me to think that they may have migrated since I found no

reference to Jasper Stanley in 1850,60, 0r 70 censuses.  Do you think

that they may have migrated to Tenn.or another state.  I have some

evidence that Deberry's sister went to Tenn.   Could William Jasper have

had another name?  We should be able to find him in the census unless he

was just missed?

Cemetery);

Temperance Smith 11F attended school with the year;

Calvin M. Smith 9M;

William J. Smith 7M (your William Jasper);

George W. Smith 4M;

Roan Dry  12M (Notice the "Dry" surname) attended school within the year;

Daniel Dry 6M  attended school within the year;

Temporary (?) Dry  5F (had trouble reading this one)

 

Notice the difference in the ages of John E., and his wife Laura, and the

fact that they were married within the year. This tells me that they are

a  "blended" family, both probably having lost their spouse in the

previous 12 months.

Notes from Richard Crotwell

------------------------------------------------

A Jasper Smith appears as number 46 on a 1779 Montgomery Co. NC voter

list.

I wonder if your William Jasper Smith could be partly named for him?

Marriage Notes for WILLIAM SMITH and SARAH TUCKER:

Look at this marriage record from Stanly Co. Book 2, page 26. Smith,

William J. (21) son of John E. & Sayer Smith wed Sayer C. Tucker (18)

dau. of John O. & Mary Ann Tucker, on 13 Apr. 1873 , John Burris. JP.

 

I have not heard of the name "Sayer" before and wonder why it appears

twice in this record.  Could be a typo or hard to read original record.

The letter "C" in the brides name could represent "Catharine." Age of the

groom fits Wm. Jasper and the John E. fits his father - John Exum Smith.

 

The 1873 marriage date fits as dau. Hester A. Smith was born abt 1874

(based on 1880 census info).

 

John O. Tucker (wife Mary A.) may be the son of Duncan and Catharine

Tucker of Stanly Co.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Apparently, on the marriage record, some one wrote Leah C. Tucker as

Sayer C. Tucker and Leah Smith as Sayer Smith.

 

So, seems highly probable that Wm. Jasper Smith's first wife was Leah

Catharine Tucker. (John Burris, Justice of the Peace)

Notes for BAXTER SMITH:

didn't want to go to war, so he left home and never came home.

Supposedly, he was never heard from again. His brother, Arthur and

Arthur's wife, Iva, went to Atlanta on a trip. While there, Arthur spent

some time talking to someone, whom his wife afterward thought was

probably Baxter. Arthur never said who it was.

He left about $750 to niece, Olena Ham, when he died.

Notes for GEORGE WEBSTER SMITH:

Stanly Funeral Home, Albemarle , N.C.   His doctor was listed as E. P.

Bunn, Albemarle, N. C.  He died of Chronic Myocarditis and Chronic

Nephritis (is this T.B.?).

 

I had always heard that George Smith died from T.B.

"My Great Grandfather George W. Smith is buried at Philadelphia Baptist

Church between his two wives, Lydia Brooks Smith (my g grandmother) and

Betty Brooks Smith.  Lydia and Betty were sisters.  When Lydia died,

George married here sister Betty, who was one year older than Lydia .

I told you that my Grandpa Web lost his farm during the depression.

George had raised a large family and buried two wives, so he must have

contacted T.B. at a later stage in his life.  Uncle Buford said everyone

was deathly afraid of T.B. and no one wanted to take him in even though

he was sick.  Grandpa Web borrowed money and built a special room on to

their house for him so he could have his own set of dishes.  George gave

Web his farm.  There was a farm between Web's farm and George's farm and

George had an opportunity to buy it, too.  He borrowed money to purchase

it, too.  Daddy said that they had a bumper crop that year but the stock

market crashed and because money was scarce they couldn't get very much

money for their goods and they were unable to repay their loan so they

lost the farm.  This happened when my Dad was a teenager.  They moved

from Stanfield to Oakboro and share cropped for a while.  They then moved

to Charlotte .

Daddy loved that farm.  It really hurt him to see it go.
