Aunt Bib, you were always so kind to your niece and all your nephews. We're so sad to see you leave us -- but you're now in heaven with your brothers and sisters. Thanks for being a wonderful and gracious aunt!
~  Michael, Brenda and Marinda Martin, Bonaire, Georgia

April 27, 2011
We had the pleasure of knowing Bib through her special friendship with Winnie, my sister. She was indeed special, talented and loved by many. She will be missed here but we pray that Winnie, Bib's family and host of friends find peace in knowing she is now rejoicing in the arms of Jesus.
~  Joe and Katha Twiner, Valdosta, Georgia

April 27, 2011
I know that Bib will be missed by many. She was such a speical friend to my sister, Winnie. They loved each other very much. I had the pleasure of meeting her once and she was such a lovely lady. I know she will be missed by all that knew her. My prayers go out to her family and to Winnie.
~  Wanda Twiner, Gulfport, Mississippi

April 27, 2011
It was always a pleasure knowing Bibb. We first met in 2000, in our unusual art class held every Tuesday in Old Homosassa. She had been with our teacher, artist professional Bea Davis for many years before we met. Always friendly and very insdustrious as a painter. She had the intelligence and abilities equal to others in the class. She'll be missed by all those in her art class. She'll be missed! Hopefully Betty Sites who supplied Bibb's transportation to and from class for some time, will visit us frequently.
~  George Harbin, Homosassa, Florida

April 27, 2011
I knew Bib through visiting my sister, Winnie, over the years. We would usually have lunch together when I was there visiting. She was a wonderful lady and great friend to my sister. I know she will be missed by her family and friends. I know I will also miss her when I visit Winnie in Florida.
~  Nancy Hatcher, Port Gibson, Mississippi

April 28, 2011
I loved Bib with all my heart. I smile every time I think of her. She had such a quick wit and always kept me laughing. We spent many wonderful hours together. I will always keep her in my heart, where she has been from the moment I met her. She was such a "Southern Belle" and a fine example of how a person should behave. I will never forget one of the first times we went to lunch and she was taking some home with her. She was putting the food one spoonful at a time in the takeout container. I said, "Just dump it, Bib." She said, "That wouldn't be genteel." Oh, how I will miss her. I wake up every morning thinking of her, and go to sleep every night thinking of her. What a fine example of a lady she was.

181 Arthur Leapard MARTIN had his name legally changed to Arthur Stephen MARTIN.
He was an electrical engineer by training having gone to the University of Florida for 3-1/2 years without graduating. He would have been in the class of 1939.

He served in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers during World War II in New Guinea. After the war he was employed by Tropical Oil Company in Colombia, South America; City of West Palm Beach as assistant city engineer; Palm Beach Air Force Base as base civil engineer; Banana River Naval Air Station (now Patrick Air Force Base); Gee & Jenson Consulting Engineers; Boeing Company at Cape Canaveral and New Orleans where he worked on the Minuteman missile and Saturn V projects; and Bechtel Corp where he worked as a Quality Engineer on nuclear power plant projects.

He had an avid interest in boating (predominately sail boats and houseboats). This probably stemmed from his youth when he lived on a houseboat in Miami and he helped his grandfather deliver the U.S. Mail by boat in South Florida from West Palm Beach to Lake Okeechobee.

Wier, Isabel Thomas (I305573)
187 Atlanta, April 16 -- (Special) -- Col. John T. Waterman, the well-known Georgia journalist, and private secretary to Judge Crisp since his incumbency as speaker of the national house of representatives, died here this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Mr. Waterman for several days has been in Atlanta during the past several days looking after some business in connection with the Hawkinsville Dispatch and News, of which paper he was at one time a proprietor, but since his duties called him to Washington he has been connected with the paper as associate editor. He has been stopping while in Atlanta with his friend, Mr. C. H. Johnson, 261 Whitehall street. Mr. Waterman was stricken with apoplexy last night at 12 o'clock. From that time until his death this afternoon he was unconscious.

A number of prominent Methodists spent the morning at Mr. Waterman's bedside.

Deceased retired last night apparently enjoying good health, and in a cheerful mood. At 12 o'clock Mr. Johnson heard heavy breathing in Mr. Waterman's room, and investigation showed the latter to be in an almost lifeless condition. Three physicians were hastily summoned. Under treatment Mr. Waterman rallied, but only for a few moments. The attack was pronounced apoplexy. At 1:30, the sick man was beyond the hope of recovery. Mr. Waterman was born in Macon about fifty years ago. He was married to Miss Annie Brown of Talbotton.

Mr. Waterman has been a prominent figure in Georgia journalism for the greater portion of his life, having edited the Monroe Advertiser, the LaGrange Reporter, the Griffin News, the Warrenton Clipper, the Thomaston Times, the Athens Banner-Watchman, the Evening Capitol of this city and the Hawkinsville Dispatch and News.

Mr. Waterman was also a strong prohibitionist.

The remains will be taken to Talbotton for interment.


Mr. Waterman was well known in Macon, as also in nearly every other community in the state. Here he spent his early life and received his education. His father was Mr. Joseph Waterman, a photographer, whose establishment was in Triangular block. John T. Waterman, when yet a lad, was apprenticed in the printing establishment of J. W. Burke & Co. When he had learned his trade, he went to Forsyth and became prominently identified with the newspaper and business interests of that place. From Forsyth, he went to Thomaston, where he engaged in a newspaper enterprise. He was next known as editor and proprietor of the LaGrange Reporter, which paper he conducted for a number of years, building it up to the highest plane attainable by the Georgia press. Mr. Waterman next took charge of the Athens Banner, which he continued to control until the lamented George P. Woods of Hawkinsville sold him an interest in the Hawkinsville Dispatch. Editor J. R. Beverly was at the time in charge of the Hawkinsville News. Editor Woods' health failed, the Dispatch and News were consolidated, and the two papers were purchased by the firm of Beverly & Waterman. In this capacity Mr. Waterman continued until Congressman Charles F. Crisp was elected speaker of the house. Mr. Waterman received the appointment as Speaker Crisp's private secretary, maintaining only a nominal connection with the Dispatch and News. As Washington correspondent for that paper, however, his weekly letters attracted considerable attention from the numerous readers, and were extensively quoted by the press.

Mr. Waterman leaves a widow, a son and two daughters -- Mr. Frank, Miss Carrie and little Anna Waterman. His widow was Miss Annie Brown, sister of Capt. Harry Brown, who is so well known in Georgia politics.

Mr. Waterman's family reside in Hawkinsville. It was generally understood that when his engagement was ended with Speaker Crisp, Mr. Waterman would again obtain possession of the News and Dispatch.

188 Attended the University of Texas at Austin from 1927-1930.
From The Alcade, Oct 1968 
Morris, Singleton Lafayette (I297026)

He was a brilliant man, a great friend and a perfect Southern gentlemen.
That's how two friends described James Edward Humes II Monday evening, after learning of the Columbus lawyer's death following a long battle with cancer.

"He's one of the finest people I've ever known," said Madden Hatcher Jr., a Columbus attorney who practiced with Humes for about 20 years at the law firm Hatcher, Stubbs, Land, Hollis and Rothschild. "It was my pleasure to run across him in my life."


Hatcher said Humes was a talented lawyer who believed in thorough preparation and who cared deeply for his clients.

In his 35 years with Hatcher, Stubbs, Land, Hollis and Rothschild, Humes most notably served as the attorney for the Muscogee County Board of Education and the Board of Commissioners for the Columbus Water Works.
He spent much of his legal career, in fact, observing situations and disseminating well-researched advice from behind the scenes of various city meetings. It wasn't in his personality to crave the limelight.

"He was a workhorse, not a show dog," Hatcher chuckled. He said Humes just wanted to make sure when his time came to speak, he had done his homework and was prepared to represent his clients to the absolute best of his abilities.

"He was always able to make his points, but he was never flashy," Hatcher said.

Bulldogs fan

Humes was born March 7, 1945, in Louisville, Ky., the son of John Wilson and Ina Dudley Humes. After graduating from Columbus High School in 1963, where he played on the state championship basketball team, he attended the University of Georgia. He graduated in 1967 with a bachelor's degree in accounting, then earned a law degree, cum laude, from the University of Georgia Lumpkin School of Law in 1970.

As a young man, Humes served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army, after which he returned to Columbus to begin his law career.

The 61-year-old father of two and grandfather of one loved his alma mater so much, he named his dogs for notable Georgia Bulldogs figures, Hatcher said. One of his pets' names was Sugar, for example.

"He was a great Bulldogs fan," Hatcher recalled.

The family asked that in lieu of flowers, contributions in Humes' memory may be made to PAWS Columbus Inc.

Humes was a lifelong member of St. Paul United Methodist Church as well as a member of the American Bar Association, State Bar of Georgia, Columbus Bar Association, Downtown Rotary Club, the Big Eddy Club, the Green Island Country Club and the Columbus Country Club.

Brains and humor

Mary Sue Polleys, former Muscogee County School Board representative for the at-large seat, worked with Humes for 13 years.

"He had a deep sense of commitment to the school district," she said.

Polleys was also quick to point out that Humes wasn't just a methodical, calculated lawyer --- although that wouldn't be incorrect --- he was also a gentleman with a wicked sense of humor.

"He had the highest degree of civility and courtesy, which is often missing today," Polleys said. "And what a keen sense of humor he had. People really loved Jim Humes."

Humes is survived by his wife of 39 years, Carol Cannon Humes; two daughters, Amy Humes Norris and Sarah Cannon Humes Andre; and a grandson.

Polleys fondly recalled the day Humes, who was waging a strong battle with cancer, walked one of his daughters down the aisle last year, drawing a standing ovation from the audience as he walked back down the aisle. Humes attended both his daughters' weddings in 2006.

"He was just an extraordinary individual," Hatcher said. "He was a brilliant man. He cared deeply for his fellow man. He cared deeply for his family and friends. Columbus has lost a great person."

A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Wednesday at St. Paul United Methodist Church with the Rev. Edwin M. Cooper officiating. There will be a private family interment prior to the service.

In addition to contributing to PAWS Columbus Inc., P.O. Box 8964, Columbus, GA 31908, contributions may be made to St. Paul United Methodist Church, 2101 Wildwood Ave., Columbus, GA 31906; Columbus Hospice House, 7020 Moon Road, Columbus, GA 31909; and Myeloma Research Foundation for a Cure Inc., 8 Witry Court, Little Rock, AR 72223.

197 Austin R. Mills, Sr., was the son of John Mills and Abigail "Nabby" Russell Mills of Williamstown, Berkshire County, Massachusetts.

During the Civil War, he enlisted as a private in Company D, First Regiment, Kansas Volunteers, and was wounded at the Battle of Wilson's Creek, near Springfield, Missouri, 10 Aug 1861, losing an eye.

In 1863 he was commissioned into the Eighth Louisiana Infantry (renamed the 47th U.S. Colored Infantry Regiment, U.S.C.T.), attaining the rank of captain.

After the war, Mills became the proprietor of Lawrence House in Lawrence, Kansas.

Austin R. Mills, Sr., married Henrietta "Etta" C. McDow on 8 Jan 1873 in Lawrence, Kansas. He was the father of daughter Abbie F. Mills, who died of tuberculosis in 1899, and son Austin R. Mills, Jr., who died in the Spanish American War in 1901 and who is buried next to the Spanish American War memorial in Oak Hill Cemetery. He was also the father of baby Clifford C. Mills, who died of typhoid at the age of 2. Clifford is buried in the same lot as his father.

A mortality report published in the Lawrence Daily Journal of Tuesday, 8 Jan 1889, page 3, reports that A R Mills died at age 51 on October 22 of typhoid fever; however, news reports indicate that he died 20 Oct 1888 (Lawrence Daily Journal, 21 Oct 1888; St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 21 Oct 1888), and the city's cemetery database reports an interment date of 20 Oct 1888.
