.........FAMILY RECORD OF BETTIE PEARSON...........
................(May 10, 1970).....................
....Given to me by Mr.& Mrs. Major Clinton Lee....
It was Paw who started all of them calling me "Bettie". Guess I liked that better, though-- or might as well, for that's what I've been called all my life. My name is really Susan Elizabeth Spence.I was named for two of my Grandmas. My mother's mother was named Elizabeth and Paw's mother was named Susan. I was born December 23, 1883 in Enon Community on Carter Creek about 10 miles from Salem, somewhat toward McComb from Salem. My father was James Marion Spence, born Noverber 27, 1851 right close to Salem. His father was William Washington Spence and his father was William Spence who came to the area around Salem, Union and Tylertown from Illinois. I don't have records available at present as to date of birth and death.
....Some say Great Grandpa Spence came from Quincy, IL. It is said that he was engaged to marry a gal whom the family did not approve of at all. However, he went ahead and got the marriage license anyway. The family did not know this and when he confided to a brother before a fire in the fireplace one day, his brother threw the license in the fire and burned it. He was so disappointed he got his hat and left-- never to return. He is buried there about Union Community just out of Tylertown, Mississippi.
....My mother was Sarah Elizabeth Gartman Spence, born November 2, 1850 -- died April 29, 1937. She married my father, James Marion Spence. Her father was David Gartman born February 2, 1811 and died November 15, 1862. Her mother, Elizabeth Holmes Gartman, was born March 14, 1819 and died March 16, 1874. Lived at or around Salem and Holmesville area. Her mother, my Great Grandmother, was befor her marriage a "Roberts" or maybe it was "Robarts". Never could get it accurately.
.... My mother, when little, lived at Salam, a short ways farther up the hill from Albert Pigott place. Her brother Josiah and her father went off to the Civil War. She, her mother and three sisters were left to live on "their own". They farmed; couldn't buy salt or matches. Used cart with wood block wheels for transportation. they dug up dirt from the smokehouse and boiled it to get salt. Knocked flints together to get fire. Didn't know anything about such a thing as a stove. Her brother died in the war and was buried at Jackson, Tennessee. Her father, David Gartman, got sick and was being brought home, but died when he got to Holmesville, right close to home.
....When about a year old we moved to about a mile from Salem Community. My father was James Marion Spence. My parents were both born in or close to Salem. I had four brothers and one sister older than me. Joseph William, called Joe Willie, was oldest. Sister Rosa Angeline next, then brothers James Franklin, Monroe Nelson, Jasper Marion-- and then me. Next was sisters Cynthia Elnora and Mertie, and later an infant boy. We stayed here (about a mile from Salem) six years, then moved near Walker's Bridge ( about a mile from this bridge). Stayed there one year, then moved to Kirklin Creek five miles from Tylertown. Some call it Woods & Ards Community. We stayed there eight years. I was about 16 years old when we left here. It was here that I learned to plow and to swim(where old mill had been). It was while living here at age 11 years that I joined New Zion Church. It was while living here in 1900 that water got so high. It was also at Kirklin Creek where we got our first stove (stove of any kind whatever). I had already learned to pick cotton, drop peas, corn, ect., before we moved here. Don't remember just how old I was when First learned to hoe.
.... We moved back close to Salem Church. Stayed there one year,then moved about a mile and half to Uncle Q.L.(Quincy) Spence's place in same community.Stayed there nearly three years. This is where we lived when I married (October 15, 1903). This place was located across the creek from Albert Pigott place and towards Tylertown from line drawn from Pigott place to my Grandpa William Washington Spence's place. It was close to where Spence Cemetery and Uncle Quincy's old place was at that time. This is the cemetery where Uncle Quincy is buried. It was while living here we decided to visit over in Hancock County. We wanted to visit Uncle Frank Spence, Grandfather William's brother. Full name was Francis Marion Spence (born July 9, 1830 and died February 22, 1909). His wife was Louisa A., born August 15, 1832 and died October 5, 1903. It took three days to go and three days to return. We used one buggy for sister Cynthia and me to ride in. Paw and Austin Boyd (my boy friend from Carter's Creek close to Enon) each rode horseback.
.... We left early in the morning. Spent first night on this trip at Calvin Crane's. They lived close to a Crane Creek Church, close to where Sharden and Hackley are now. Left early next morning. Spent second night at one of Paw's old friends, Nancy Sandifer. Cynthia and I slept here, but Paw and Austin went to her Daughter's house (a Mr. Riley's house) because not room enough for us all to stay at Mrs. Sandifer's. This was close to where Bogalusa now is. There was a distance of 28 miles from this area back towards Sharden (don't think I spelled it right) where there were on houses at all. During this night someone awakened us-- calling the man where we were-- and told us Austin's horse had lay down in the stable, stretched out his legs under the crib and couldn't get back up. He had to go get his horse up during the night. The old lady Sandifer parched peanuts in fireplace and cooked sweet potatoes in the yard.
.... We came on next day (third day) and crossed river at Pool's Bluff and spent night at Uncle Bud Spiers. He married Walter's mother's sister Jane. Don't know if stayed here one or two nights, but think it was two. Came on to Uncle Frank Spence's where Jesse Pearson now lives. Lloyd Spiers and his sister Fanny came with us. Ate dinner here and walked over to Aunt Louisa Spence Pearson's house (later my mother-in-law) First time I saw my future husband (Walter) was when he came in from school that afternoon. He went to school at Milton. All of them had pictures made that day, including Arthur who was not old enough to go to school regularly. Met all family this afternoon. Us girls spent night here and the men folks went back to Uncle Frank's to sleep. Next day Walter went to a wedding as he promised he would. He took Ellen Lumpkin(later Martin) in his Dad's buggy to Eugene Pigott'S wedding down to what was later Uncle Joe Pearson's place. This was then home of Davis, Aunt Caroline Pearson's grandma and grandpa.
....Us girls spent next night at Uncle Frank's and the men folks at Grandpa Leander's (Walter's home). the boys all came up where we were that night and we all played and had a good time. Walter didn't come. It was here this night where I "dismissed" Austin as my boy friend-- just didn't care that much about him.
.... Went the next day to Aunt Claudia's who lived on place where Dan Lee reared his family. Spent night here. (This trip was in December 1902). Next day we all went back to Aunt Jane and Uncle Bud's close to where Carriere is now. Spent night or two here. Went to dance or party at a Mr. Smith's. Boys at Aunt Jane's and Walter (Who had come out there) went with us. I went with Martin Elliot who was boarding at Aunt Jane's. Several boarders were staying at Aunt Jane's. Walter had had his leg cut and was somewhat crippled. Had one party one night at Aunt Jane's, too. About next day we left for home. Austin Boyd stayed behind-- not through visiting yet.
.... When we reached Pool's Bluff the river was full but we crossed okay. Man and lady who pulled us across were quite scared, however.Spent two nights before we got home. Don't remember who we stayed with, though, Got home before Christmas.
....Not long after christmas Uncle Bud Spiers, Walter and Austin Boyd came. Walter rode bicycle part of way. Finally, in cold, ect., he tied it onto Uncle Bud's buggy. Walter stayed a week or more, I think. Uncle Bud didn't stay that long. Uncle Bud went some place and bought all three girls a silver ring each. We liked him for that. Also some kind of comb each. Walter stayed till January 15, 1903. He started back home and Cynthia and I went to Jodie Spence's wedding.
.... Before my trip to Hancock County, the first visit between my folks with any of Uncle Frank's was several years. This was when my father and brother Jimmy went to see Uncle Frank. Had to hunt him-- didn't know if he was even alive or not. On way to Hancock County, stopped at Mother's sister Jane's house. Her husband was John Hill. They lived around what we call Sones Chapel. Spent night here. Next day Paw wanted to go back home but Jimmy wanted to go on-- after they had come this far. Paw was worried about their horses. They were both on horseback. So they went on until they stopped again to try to buy feed for the horses. They hit it lucky. Got plenty food for the horses and themselves-- at no charge at all. This turned out to be old man Sam Jarrel's. Must have been around McNeil some place. They finally found Uncle Frank's place, house short distance south of hickory Creek on Leetown- Kiln road. Was just south and on opposite side of road from where "Pleasant Hill" school or church was once located. Paw just could remember his Uncle Frank. Stayed there a while and Uncle Frank took them to see most all of his children who didn't live too far off. Went to Walter's Pa's. Sure did enjoy their trip a lot. Uncle Frank was quite well educated and taught school.
.... First ones to visit from Hancock County over to see us was Uncle Frank, Uncle Bruner Stewart and Walter's Pa -- all on Horseback. Visiting and sort of looking for cattle to buy too. This was before I made my first trip to Hancock County.
.... Another visit was when Dan Lee, Ben and Ulman Flanagan came to see. us. Another time brother Jap and Paw went to Hancock County. Paw came back before Jap did. Jap worked a while till he got homesick or something when he borrowed Uncle John Flanagan's horse to go home on. He skinned it's back and we had to keep it all winter and feed it. After keeping it so long and all, Jap was scared to take it back, and Paw gave brother Jimmy a heifer calf to carry it back to Uncle John. He had to go to Columbia to cross Pearl River -- it was full. Uncle John was glad we had kept the horse all that while.
....In October of 1903, about the 12th. of the month, Mrs. Leander Pearson, her son Walter, her daughter Rosella and little son Jesse (age 2 months) came to our house. My father and oldest brother met them in Columbia, Mississippi in two buggies, at railroad station. They had arrived by train of course. They stayed at our house until next day after my wedding, which was October 15, 1903. I married Walter Brandon Pearson, born May 1, 1885.
.... On morning of October 16, 1903 we got up early. went to Columbia to depot. Johnny Spence, a cousin (one of Uncle Quincy's boys), carried us all in two- horse wagon. My father went far as Columbia with us. We caught the train and rode it to Lumberton, Mississippi where we caught N.O.& N.E. to Poplarville. It was night when we got here. We went to Uncle John Flanagan's home and spent the night. This was my mother-in-law's husband. We went and ate dinner at Aunt Mary Mitchell's. Aunt Mary was one of my mother-in- law's sisters, the oldest one. I will now speak of my mother-in-law as "Grandma Pearson. we also went to the studio and had pictures made. This afternoon we got a train to Carriere. Walter to Uncle Bud Spiers. His wife was sister of Grandma Pearson, too. This place is where Zel Barber now lives. Spent the night there.
....Next day Walter's father and brother William came in buggy and wagon to get us (Walter and me, Grandma, Rosella and little Jesse. We went to Walter's home (Grandma's). We left in the afternoon and got there before dark. We stayed there a year. Walter worked in turpentine (Grandpa's timber). First child, Bruce, was born July 17, 1904. 12 lbs.
.... When been there about a year we moved back near Salem. On September 14, 1905 Elsie, an infant girl, was born here and lived three days. Buried in Boyd Cemetery. We then moved back to near Carriere, or White Chapel Community. Bought 20 acres here and built a 2-room house on it. Bought from Lloyd Spiers. Here daughter, Lena, was born October 18, 1906. Stayed here 5 years. Son Leroy was born here May 13, 1908. It was here where storm blew roof off new barn where we stayed during storm. We moved from here right after Christmas to two miles above White's Chapel on Monroe Tate's Place.
.... We moved to Caesar in Feb 1911 to house of Uncle John Pearson's across road from where Free Lee now lives. Stayed there till May 2, 1911 when we moved to where I live now. Took over as Postmaster and me as Assistant. Actually he took over as Postmaster 1st of April before we moved. We kept postoffice 9 years and had store a good part of that time. On July 17, 1911 daughter Duree was born. On December 2, 1913 son Marvin was born. Son Jewel was born March 26, 1915.
....Got first car (Model T Ford) in 1914. Just a few days before July 4 th. Paid $600.00 cash for it. Marvin was 6 months old. He and I took first trip together in car. Went to Columbia, ect., to my Paw's on July 4, 1914. Ray Varnado went along to drive. The Varnados already had a car a while. Carried extra gas along.
.... During our 56 years of marriage Walter worked at various Jobs: butcher, turpentine, little farming, running general store, postmaster, surveyor, etc. Worked for Monroe Tate, Pearl River Highlands, Grady Thigpen surveying land. Was County Surveyor for Hancock County one term.
