(Some researched history notes during the earliest Fordham families from Kelshall, Hertsford County, England

*from Ben O. Fordham, Jr.- Fordham Researcher)

Note: The Village of Fordham is in Essex County, GB or (UK) or (England).

 

Introduction*

I had visited the current Village of Fordham web site which is interesting. I also have (and you now have) pictures of the village and some of the history. One Fordham was Bishop of the parish back in the day. His information is also in the CD.

Fordham as a settlement pre-dates the Romans who landed their invasion at what is now Colchester. Colchester is one of the oldest towns in the UK. I followed the name and locale through the Doomsday book and learned what a "manor" was and how they counted wealth. That, of course, was a Norman action. Fordhams were around when the pre-history of the Angles and Jutes were around. Who knows what that means?

One more recent ancestor from the same village came over in the early 1600's as an Anglican priest and helped to found Sudbury, Massachusetts. After that he moved on toward New York City or New Amsterdam and founded his "manor" there in the Bronx. He is credited with helping to found the town of Hempstead, NY which now is the county seat. His family moved to Sag Harbor and lived there many generations. I have been to Sag Harbor and there are many Fordham's buried in the Presbyterian Church burying ground. They obviously were seafaring people.

My immediate ancestor came from Annapolis to New Bern, NC in early 1700's, married a minister's daughter and stayed. His father was a brewer, and his father before him. Hmmm, maybe that accounts for my beverage choices.

The Fordham branch that started in Mass. in the 1600's is, according to my sources, the most researched Fordham family in America. Several decades ago a member of that tree sent me by GEDCOM that research, but alas, it was lost when the computer crashed. I spent years trying to find a link between that branch and my New Bern ancestor and couldn't. Finally found the link in England. The Fordham clan all came from the same area of England, that being Kelshall and surrounds. I grew up about 90 miles from Wilmington in Kinston. Kinston is only about 40 miles from New Bern so you can see that many of the Fordhams stayed close to the original site. A group of the old clan moved to Georgia in the early 1800's and now there are more Fordham sir names in that State than any other.
In the file I will send there are pictures of the Village of Fordham, Herts, UK. Another researcher and a "cousin" by the name of Fordham sent me picture he took while visiting in the UK. I also included some impressions he sent along also.

I will copy and mail the file ASAP. Nice to know someone else finds the search interesting.

I did this work over 40 years and most of it I believe to be accurate. Occasionally someone would ask me to make a correction, but I believe it is accurate. When I got back to Henry the 8th's time, I stopped. I figured I had done enough and someone else in the family would have to continue. No one has. Maybe you are the one. Good luck and let me have your address and I will ship the CD your way.

Sincerely,
Benjamin Oliver Fordham Jr.
a.k.a. Ben

000. John Fordham b. 1470


1. John Fordham was born 1519 in Kelshall, Hertford, England, and died Oct 1580 in Kelshall, Hertford, England. He married Agnes Fordham 1539 in Kelshall, Hertford, England. She was born in Kelshall, Hertford, England, and died in Kelshall, Hertford, England.

Child of John Fordham and Agnes Fordham is:

+ 2 i. Christopher Fordham was born 1540 in Kelshall, Hertford, England.

 

The records are not clear at this point in history. HOWEVER, this isthe closest link I hav e ever found between the Robert Fordham(Rev.Rob) who is the progenitor of the Fordhams of Mas sachusetts andNew York. John Fordham's wife is listed as Agnes Fordham. John'sbirth date i s listed as the same as his marriage date (1539)
Obviously, that is incorrect. Assuming 20 years of age at marriage,John would have been bor n in 1519/20 Agnes Fordham is a child ofJohn Fordham and Agnes Stoughton. The dates make i t possible thatJohn Fordham's wife is that child. If so this is the link between thetwo fami lies. Given the fact that Kelshall and Barkway in the UK areside by side and that the Fordha m name was so common in the area, itis likely that they are the same family, were distantly r elated, andcertainly knew each other. A search in Google Earth shows theexciting possibilit y because they lived next to each other separatedby only a few miles.

Particular genealogists may say, and be correct, that the records donot support a definite li nk, but this is close enough for me.

HISTORY OF THE TIME IN ENGLAND
The King of England at this time was Henry VIII. Most know hisimportance and his appetite fo r new wives. Henry wanted--needed--amale heir. It seems none of the ladies he wed, killed , or divorcedcould do that for him. He wed Catherine of Aragon and stayed marriedto her fo r 20 years and seemed happy. Unhappily, she could not bearhim a surviving son, but did giv e him a surviving daughter in 1516.This child was Mary. Despite the years and the child Henr y forced thechurch and his child to accept that the marriage was "invalid" andthat he was fre e to marry again. Mary, badly treated for a longchildhood, had been forced to declare hersel f a bastard. She didbecome queen, however, and as a devout roman catholic, she intended totu rn England back to the true faith. That horrible bloodlettingattempt earned her the name "bl oody Mary". It was a title greatlydeserved.

John Fordham was born when Mary was only 3 years old

2. Christopher Fordham (John Fordham1) was born 1540 in Kelshall, Hertford, England. He married Johanna Froste 12 Nov 1568 in Kelshall, Hertford, England. She was born 1545 in Kelshall, Hertford, England.

Child of Christopher Fordham and Johanna Froste is:

+ 3 i. Richard Fordham was born 6 Jun 1576 in Kelshall, Hertford, England.

 

By the time Christopher was born in 1540, Henry VIII had gone throughCatherine of Aragon, who m he disavowed, Anne Boleyn, with whom he hadanother daughter and finally beheaded. This sec ond daughter wasElizabeth. Jane Seymour was next in line. She gave him a son, Edward,but die d in childbirth in 1537. Not to be deterred, Henry marriedagain to Anne of Cleves, but divor ced her, because of how she lookedwhen he saw her and married again, this time to Catherine H oward.This marriage was in Christopher Fordham's birth year of 1540.

Henry was not done. He beheaded Catherine Howard in 1542 and MarriedCatherine Parr. Henry d ied--likely exhausted--in 1547. He had done alot, beyond marriages. He declared independenc e from the church inRome and started the Church of England. He took England into vehementpro testantism which laid the ground work for a series of bloody shiftsbetween protestant and cat holic sponsored by suceeeding monarchs,beginning with Mary.

Henry declared himself as the supreme head of the church in Englandand had a bible translate d into english in every parish. This was thevery first time. Remember that Martin Luther an d the reformation hebegan sat between 1529 and 1536. It was not the best of times for therom an church. Countries loyal to Rome such as Spain and France,always a problem for England, no w had a papal sponsor for all kinds ofmischief toward England. This constant turmoil playe d backdrop forthe living of the common people, one family of which was the Fordhamfamily.

Christopher and Johanna lived out most of their lives in a period ofhistory rich with blood y battles, great literature, great art, and arapidly changing world. By the time of their ma rriage in 1568, EdwardVI had been king and died, Mary had become queen, married Philip ofSpai n in Winchester Cathedral (1554) and begun burning heretics(protestants) at the stake. In fo ur years 300 men and women, rich andpoor, eminent and ignorant alike, were burned. She ha d a short life,and short reign, but accomplished a lot--both good and ill--when shedied at 4 2 in 1558.

Shakespeare was born in 1564.

3. Richard Fordham (Christopher Fordham2, John Fordham1) was born 6 Jun 1576 in Kelshall, Hertford, England. He married Agnes Fordham 1598 in Kelshall Herts, England. She was born in Kelshall Hertford, England.

Child of Richard Fordham and Agnes Fordham is:

+ 4 i. Ephraim Fordham was born 1600 in Kelshall Hertford, England, and died 1635 in Kelshall Hertford, England.

 

The final monarch of the Tudors Elizabeth I is thought to be one ofEngland's finest. The dau ghter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, shesurvived being imprisoned in the tower in 1554 and ex communication bythe pope in 1570. The Elizabethean age lasted until Elizabeth's deathin 1603 . She was a protestant, Mary who preceeded her was catholic.This is the age of Shakespeare , Philip Marlow, and the rise of thegreat theatre in London. Elizabeth chose compromise in r eligionmeaning that so long as there was conformity to the Church of England,no questioning o f a person's conscience was done. This led, ofcourse, to the rise of Puritanism, and the inf iltration of otherprotestant ideals from Europe. The political threat was the Spanish.Elizab eth had sent troops to fight the Spanish in support of the DutchProtestants and raided spanis h vessels on the high seas. The eventwas the onslaught of the Spanish Armada. A superior for ce to theEnglish by every measure, they were soundly defeated tipping thebalance toward Engla nd for supremacy on the high seas. This, alongwith the adventures of English seaborne explor ers, makes it easier forimmigration from Holland and England to take place. Sir Francis Drak ehas circumnavigated the world in 1577-1580 and the fear of crossingthe dreaded sea was lesse ned.

It was Elizabeth whom Sir Walter Raleigh sought to make queen of anAmerican colony, and name d Virginia in her honor. With this backdrop,the first Fordham in our direct line came to Phi ldelphia. His namewas John Fordham, son of Ephraim and Hannah.

4. Ephraim Fordham (Richard Fordham3, Christopher Fordham2, John Fordham1) was born 1600 in Kelshall Hertford, England, and died 1635 in Kelshall Hertford, England. He married Hannah Fordham 1635 in Kelshall Herts, England. She was born in Kelshall Hertford, England, and died in Kelshall Hertford, England.

Child of Ephraim Fordham and Hannah Fordham is:

+ 5 i. John Fordham was born 1627 in Kelshall, Hertford, England, and died 1683 in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

 

The apparent confusions in the English records, which denies us the certainty about the link between the Rev Rob Fordham (New England) and the Benjamin Fordham (Philadelphia) may stem from the fact that Ephraim lived such a short life. If his wife Hannah was taken as wife by another Fordham, that may explain why, occasionally, the wife is listed as having the same name as the husband: a fact frowned upon by the Family Tree Maker software.

Who ever of these whose son was Philip, the father of Rev Rob, may also have been the father of Benjamin who came to Philadelphia. Speculation? Yes. Rob was educated as an anglican priest , there is no record of John, the son of Ephraim and Hannah having that opportunity.What happened to Hannah after the early death of Ephraim? If the dates hold true John, the child, was 8 when his father died. A widow with an 8 year old child (other children?) surely would have depended on the family for assistance. There is the record of a Richard Fordham who married Agnes Stoughton in Kelshall, Hertford 30 years earlier whose names and dates suggest an available family member.

5. John Fordham (Ephraim Fordham4, Richard Fordham3, Christopher Fordham2, John Fordham1) was born 1627 in Kelshall, Hertford, England, and died 1683 in Philadelphia, PA, USA. He married Sarah Simpson, daughter of Stephen Simpson and Dowsibell House. She was born 1624 in England.

Child of John Fordham and Sarah Simpson is:

+ 6 i. Benjamin Fordham I was born 1665 in London, England, and died Feb 1717 in Philadelphia.

 

The speculation about the plight of John Fordham, son of Ephraim and Hannah may not be conclusive, but we do know that John moved to Philadelphia and died there in 1683. Maybe the early death of his father helped urge him along the way.

We do not know the exact date of his coming to Philadelphia, but it must have been the middle to late 1600's since he was born in England, but died in Philadelphia in 1683. His son Benjamin was born in London in 1665, and died in Philadelphia (after a sourjourn in Annapolis ) in 1717.

6. Benjamin Fordham I (John Fordham5, Ephraim Fordham4, Richard Fordham3, Christopher Fordham2, John Fordham1) was born 1665 in London, England, and died Feb 1717 in Philadelphia. He married Lydia Jennett 1696 in Philadelphia, PA, USA, daughter of John Jennett and Bridget. She was born 5 Mar 1679, and died 1715 in Philadelphia.

Children of Benjamin Fordham I and Lydia Jennett are:

7 i. Margaret Fordham was born 29 Jul 1698 in Philadelphia.
8 ii. Lydia Fordham was born 5 Mar 1701 in Philadelphia.
+ 9 iii. Benjamin Fordham II was born 28 May 1703 in Annapolis MD, and died 1777 in Craven County, NC.
10 iv. John Fordham was born 20 Oct 1704 in Annapolis.
11 v. Joseph Fordham was born 3 Dec 1705 in Annapolis.
12 vi. Sarah Fordham was born 3 Oct 1708 in Annapolis.
+ 13 vii. Richard Fordham was born 1705 in Philadelphia, PA, USA, and died Aug 1764 in Burlington, Burlington, NJ, USA.
14 viii. Famoo Fordham.

The early life experience of Benjamin, son of John and Sarah, must have been exciting and try ng. One can surmise, given what was happening in the world that time, that these circumstance s influenced his opportunity and his decision. Mary of the famous duet monarchs William and Mary was killed by smallpox in 1694. King William died inMarch 1702. It might have been a good time to leave England, since a war with France was not underway as it usually was, and England wanted to secure the New World for itself by encouraging immigration to the colonies .

Benjamin must have learned his brewing skills in Philadelphia. Hisoldest son, Benjamin II wa s born the year his father established thebrewery in Annapolis, 1703. Three years later anot her Benjamin wasborn, this one in Boston and his name was Franklin. (BenjaminFranklin ran aw ay to Philadelphia in 1723, just a few years after thedeath of Benjamin Fordham mentioned her e as a touch stone in history)A common practice was for younger men in the family to seek top ractice their professions in a new place, rather than to try andcompete in the same busines s in the same place they had learned. Atthis time, Philadelphia was a town of no more than 2 ,000 inhabitants.One brewery would likely be enough, two one too many. Thus Annapolis.Philad elphia was also strongly under the thumb of the Penn family andinfluenced by the Quaker versi on of religion. What part this playedin the decision to try the provincial capital of Annapo lis, a.k.aProctor and Anne Arundel Town, is interesting, but speculation. BothMaryland an d Pennsylvania were not states, nor royal colonies at thispoint. They were owned and operate d by the proprietors who had beengranted the property by the english crown. Much mischief wo uld occuras the colonies moved toward being independent.

The brewery which Benjamin started gives this history in its brochure:"In 1694 the courts rel ocated to a city first called Proctor, later tobe renamed Anne Arundel Town. The first indus try of the newprovincial capital, soon to be re-dubbed Annapolis, was established in1703. I t was a brewery owned by Benjamin Fordham, who had emigratedfrom his home in London for Phila delphia. By 1708, he had gainedenough respect to be named an Alderman in Annapolis."

(note:A problem with the information shows that Joseph and Richard were both born in 1705, on e in Annapolis, the other in Philadelphia.Who knows?)

Benjamin Fordham III (Benjamin Fordham II7, Benjamin Fordham I6, John Fordham5, Ephraim Fordham4, Richard Fordham3, Christopher Fordham2, John Fordham1) was born 27 Nov 1743 in Craven County, and died 1845 in Jones County. He married Mary Blackshear 1766 in Jones County, daughter of Alexander A. Blackshear and Agnes B. Stout. She was born 1745 in Craven County, and died 1791 in Craven County.

Children of Benjamin Fordham III and Mary Blackshear are:

+ 32 xii. Caty Fordham was born 25 Jan 1789.

 

It falls to the Benjamin and Martha's son Benjamin, (whom I numbered 3rd) born in 1743 and married in 1766 to Nancy Lavender to live through the Revolutionary War. He was 24 years old whe n his first child, Elizabeth was born, followed virtually every year by another through 1782.

From "Records of Jones County, North Carolina, Deed Book K, p.320" its ays "Benjamin Fordham , Sr. gave to his son Benjamin Fordham, Jr. land on the north side of Trent River on Jashuas Creek and west side of Heritages Branch, containing 200 acres, being part of three surveys,one grnted to Joseph Kinsey, Mar 10 1758; one to Thomas Dean, October 21, 1784; and one to Benjamin Fordham November 27, 1789, reserving one acre to John Fordham for mill as laid off by ju y. Wts: Isaac Brown and John Stanley.)

Benjamin and Mary lived on the Great Chinquepin Creek in Jones County, North Carolina. They had 12 children. We know little of these children. The will of Benjamin shows several interesting things. One was that by this time he owned slaves which he gave to his children in his will. Another was that he willed everything to his wife during her lifetime, provided she made provisions for her children when they became of age and began their own households. It also gives a glimpse into the relationships that were developing that would be important for our f amily history later, in that the witness to the deed was John Stanley and Isaac Brown. Both names become part of the family as they marry daughters of the Fordhams. It is with the Stanley family that a later Benjamin moves to Georgia.

History during this time includes many well known actions and reactions leading up to the Declaration of Independence in July, 1776 and the subsequent war that ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1783. One of the earliest rebellions to place with the Battle of Alamance in 1771. Governor William Tryon ( e.g., Tryon's Palace in New Bern)
decided to take on the rebellious colonists in the western counties which ended with the battle some 8 miles away from what is now Burlington, NC. The rebels were soundly defeated by th e regulars under Tryon and some were executed for their acts. While we think of the war as beginning much later, this skirmish was for some the initial battle of the Revolultion. Had it been against the crown, not the local government, it might be thought of by all. The issue was taxes and the atmosphere was rebellion. Tryon was in New Bern, so were our ancestors. There is no way they could have avoided having an opinion about the incident. Benjamin 3rd was 28 , his wife 26. JohnFordham, through whom we trace our lineage, was born that year. While Benjamin 4th the ninth child moved to Georgia, John stayed in Jones County. It is to his history I now turn.

How one longs for more information about the thinking, actions, and effects these historical events had on the family. It is left by this researcher for others to find.

John Married three times. First to Catherine Koonce with whom he had three children: Leah, Penelope, and Mary.
Secondly, to Nancy Miller who died within a year of the marriage with no children and finally to Nancy Levander. The name Levander is an anglicized verson of the french Le Vander and likely she is from the hugenot who settled in New Bern.

John Fordham, was the progenitor of most of the Fordham family living in North Carolina. His life encompasses the most important historical events in the history of America. The Declaration of Independence, The Revolutionary War, the creation of the Constitution, the rafification of the Constitution, and the establishment of the new United States of America. We know little of the family's response to these seminal actions, but we do have a clue to their awareness and sentiments in the names of their children. "William Gaston" a name not borne of earlier Fordhams became the name of John and Nancy's first son. (see notes on William Gaston Fordham b.1823) This implies respect for a Federalist, a catholic, and a protector of the rights of blacks, while being a slave holder. Andrew Jackson Fordham, born in 1832, implies respect for the ultimate democrat and non- Federalist, Andrew Jackson.

Could it be that Nancy leaned one way, and John another? It would not be the first or the last time that a Fordham man and wife cancelled each other's votes. Fun. Note that the remaining children after AJ Fordham had more "usual" names like Nancy, David, etc.

What seems clear from reading between the lines of history is that the hardening of the stands on social issues had not occurred at this time so much. Issues associated with "southerners" in general during the Civil War and after were to come, but had not yet. It was possible as we can see for living, breathing people to have a variety of opinions contrary to the sterotypes that developed later. War and its aftermath usually makes people more set in their opinions of the former enemie's character and on the issues that framed the causes for war. John Fordham, was the progenitor of most of the Fordham family living in North Carolina.

Benjamin Fordham (whom I numbered 4th) was the ninth child and second son of Benjamin and Mary Blackshear Fordham. He married Elsie Miller in Feb. 1805. Her father was a revolutionary soldier: William Miller.This Benjamin is the progenitor of all the Fordhams who now reside in Georgia, for he moved with his wife, and the family bible of Benjamin and Nancy Blackshear to that state in 1812. The Fordham, Stanley and Blackshear families had intermarried and their journey south was made together. A tradition says that the family crossed the Oconee river on January 12, 1812, at a point two miles below the mouth of Big Sandy Creek, known as Green's Ferry. While waiting for the ferry Benjamin carved his name and the date on a large beech tree beside the road on the bank of the river. The Fordhams settled in Wildinson County not far from the ferry and many of their graves are in the Fordham Graveyard in that town. Benjamin and Elsie had 14 children to populate and live out their lives in the new colony of Georgia. Oglethorpe founded the colony in 1733.

The history of this branch of the family is well documented in the book :"The Fordhams and Related Families" by Jane Whitaker Fordham, Jenette Fordham Kelley, and Yvonne Fordham Burnset to which I am indebted for much information. Their work is included in this family tree for all to see, enjoy, and use.This Benjamin Fordham is the ancestor who moved to Georgia

He married 1st Serena A. Thomas 21 Aug 1860 in Jones County, dau. of Marcus D. THOMAS & Elizabeth GREGORY, both of North Carolina.

DAVIS and had 1 child, William DAVIS b. 1879, (both children named in 1880 Census of Thomas & Ssrena Davis).

+ 119 i. William Gaston Fordham was born 16 Aug 1864 in Jones County, and died 9 Feb 1941 in Jones County.

 

Children of Ivey Fordham and Marinda Susan Williams are:

121 ii. Fanny Fordham was born 2 Oct 1858 in Jones, NC, USA, and died 9 Feb 1941 in Jones, NC, USA.

 

Ivey Fordham married twice. The first marriage to Susan Marinda Williams produced two daughters, Susan and Fanny. How this marriage ended is not known, nor much about the children's lives beyond their birth dates. Future researchers have a rich field for discovering more about their lives.

Most researchers have followed the events of the second marriage to Serena A. Thomas. Not much has been found in this search about the ancestors of Serena, but it would be an interesting search. Pictures found on the sale of the Gaston and Mary Fordham estate after Gaston's death include one of Johnny Thomas and wife. I assume it was Serena's brother and wife in that picture. Serena married twice more after Ivey's death in l864. She married a Mr. Morton, about whom I know nothing, and Thomas. E. Davis. She is buried in Jacksonville, NC beside her third husband Mr. Davis. Her original grave was moved when Camp LeJeune was created to a public cemetery where it remains today.

Serena and Ivey lived in the time of the build up to the American Civil War. We know nothing of their daily lives, but it must have been important to them since Ivey joined the Confederate forces in the 8th Batallion Partisan Rangers under John E. Nethercutt, later to become part of the 66th Infantry regiment that served in Petersburgh,VA. One account tells of a battle on 16 May 1864 (seehttp://www.angelfire.com/nc/twsj/history66thncinf.html) wherein the troops "virtually lived under ground, and it was dangerous for a person's head at any time to be ex posed, so near together were the two lines, in some places hardly more than a hundred yards apart." The soldiers talked to each other over the lines. For amusement, they would place their hats on a stick or baynonet and let them be perforated by sharpshooter fire. It is further noted in this history that in a series of fights which ended 3 June Colonel A. D. Moore was mortally wounded by a ball striking him in the neck. Then Lieutenant-Colonel Nethercutt became Colonel of the Company C and was promoted to Major. This was dated June 3, the day of the memorable battle of Second Cold Harbor. Ivey had joined the Partisan Rangers under Nethercutt . He may have been in one or more of the battles spoken of here.

Ivey died of disease, not battle wounds, which is not hard to imagine given the conditions. His grave has never been located by this author. The search goes on led by a descendant Pat Sykes of Yorktown, VA.

Serena must have had a tough life. She married at 20, had a child within 4 years and lost her husband not more than 3 weeks after the child was born. Ivey was in the Confederate States army when he became ill from some disease. Serena heard about his illness and 3 weeks after Gaston was born left, with child, to travel to the Richmond area, through Union lines to see him. He died before she arrived. Where he is buried remains a mystery to those of us who have searched. Following the development of his regiment it is likely that rather than Richmond being the site of his death, it may have been Petersburg, some 30 miles south. His grave, like so many during that long and hideous Peterburg encounter, may be among the unmarked. The park service that tracks graves in national cemetries and related battlefields has no record of his site. The state confererate records are not yet available online, so a trip to the Raleigh State Archivesis required before more information can be obtained.

The bravery represented by the long trip to the Richmond area b ySerena says that she was str ng, committed, and willing to do the right thing. She was now a widow with a young child. In those days it was not possible for a single worman to support a family unless she was the owner of lots of land and had a large family to assist her in the handling of it. If the family owned slaves, she would have had to manage that issue as well. What she did was to give her son to his uncle and namesake, William Gaston Fordham to be raised. Again, this must have b en the right thing to do at the time. Pictures of Serena show a strong determined, black eyed, lovely woman whose features are repeated over and over in her decendants. Life was not easy in 1864. It would not get easier after the war ended.

Gaston was a farmer. He was a strong task master with little sympathy for those who did not want to work hard. My father, Benjamin Oliver Fordham, Gaston's son worked hard all his life ,pushed hard as a youth by Gaston.
When Gaston's son Benjamin and Eleanor Jones were married, they lived with Gaston and Mary in the Fordham homestead in Jones County. Those years were strongly remembered by my mother, E leanor. As a young bride, living with in-laws, very accustomed to handling a large family it was an uneasy education. Respect and concern probably sums up the time there which both she and my father always appreciated. Gaston had little to pass on to his children since land had already been divided many times from the time of his grandfather. It was Mary's inheritance that gave my father the strength to defy his father. Benjamin wanted to go off to school. Gaston did not want him to do that. It was made clear that once he left, he would get nothing from Gaston. Mary took her son aside and let him know that she owned land in her name, and that he should not worry about his future. Benjamin went to school. He also later bought land to f arm from his mother and her sister. He raised his family and lived on that farm until his deat h. Fathers and sons. What can one say?

When Gaston died in 1941, I was 6 years old. I faintly remember him.He sported a long handled mustache. Drank to excess and died of Euremic poisoning. That he "drank himself to death" was always the way my family referred to his death. It was used, frequently, as an object lesson about the evils of alcohol.

I faintly remember the funeral. It was a time when my father wept. How confusing it was for me then to see the strongest man in the world show such sorrow. I have since learned how the loss of my Dad could reduce me to tears as bitter as those he had shed over the death of his father.

Gaston's widow eventually sold the property and lived with her children until her death. She and her sister Olive are strong memories for those of us privileged to know them. The stories about them are too numerous to detail, suffice it to say, going to Grandaddy and Grandmammy' s house was an opportunity to eat "tea cakes" and stub toes on the great roots of the oak trees surrounding their big porch.

1895 was an interesting time to be born. A lot of the bitterness of the Civil War had lessened in favor of the growing county's exercising its growing influence in the world beyond the United States. William Jennings Bryan was expounding his particular brand of conservative religion and politics, gold was discovered in the Klondike a year later, and Utah became a state. B y the time Benjamin was 4 the war with Spain was declared following the sinking of the Maine in Cuba'sharbor.

Growing up on the farm, along with brothers and a sister. Ben was the 5th child and the 4th son. William, Ivey, and Robert were already on the scene. One can only imagine the work, worry, and fun that a growing family experienced. Stories come from childhood in bits and pieces . Ben told with some amazement how Lilah could put her long hair over a limb and pull herself off the ground. The oak trees in the front yard of the Fordham place shaded many days of hide and seek, laughter, bumps and bruises, and house labor available to male and female alike . I imagine Grandmammy (as Mary was called by her grand children) serving tea cakes to her brood when time and effort allowed. Like most families there were joys and problems, happy and sad times. Relatives visited, some died, some were in trouble, some honored. If only we had a video tape or a DVD of those times! Most pictures came later and show young and strong individuals doing the things that were meaningful to them at the time. Pictures in the scrapbo k of this family tree are some of those.

But world events were building toward another conflict. Hardly did one stop it seems than they were building to another. Civil War, War with Mexico, Spanish American war, now enter World War I.

Benjamin entered the army in 1916 and did his basic training in South Carolina. His responsibilities included escorting family members who were visiting in the camp and to help them find the persons they were visiting. In this capacity he met and made friends with a lot of women seeking boyfriends or husbands and/or fathers. Many pictures in the family album show these people whose names are lost to us.

After the war Benjamin seems to have enjoyed the freedom from the farm and the army to do those things most young men do: travel with friends, have fun, court, and visit. He met Eleanor Jones and was very interested and she was to become his wife within a few years. Traveling to see Eleanor was a chore, of course, because although there might be an automobile, there was not much of a road. This condition remained until about 1947. The whole family remembers the hideous dirt road that led to Maple Hill in Pender County. It is a measure of Benjamin's interest that he made the trip. He would, as was the custom of the day, stay several days at a time . Benjamin left the service in March 1919, and he and Eleanor were married in November of 1922 . He was 27 and she 24.
