Five Vinson brothers came to America from Ireland, and settled in Maryland. My great-grand-father moved from Maryland to Hancock county, Georgia, and was a Methodist minister. His son, Ebenezer Vinson, moved from Hancock county, to Baldwin county, Georgia, about 1854.

Ebenezer Vinson built a home, three miles from Milledgeville, on the Sandersville road. The house is still standing—a two story house, well preserved and painted gray. The second story is only across the front of the house, and a small front porch below, a type of architecture very much in use at that time. The many out buildings have long been torn away.

Ebenezer Vinson had two brothers and two sisters. One sister, Martha Vinson, married Mr. Parham, of Warren county. The other sister was named Vina. One brother, John Vinson, moved to Alabama and. the other brother, Tully Vinson,
moved to Texas. Ebenezer Vinson lived and died near Milledgeville. His wife was Martha Crawford Dickson, and his children were: William Vinson, Henry Vinson, Walter Vinson, Edward Vinson, Lucy Vinson, (Mrs. N. P. Williams), Dora Vinson (Mrs. Wm. Williford), Anne Vinson (Mrs. Thomas Beall).

Bishop Pierce performed the marriage ceremony of Ebenezer and Martha Dickson, and came from his home to preach the funeral of Ebenezer when he died, as he was a life-long friend.

Edward Story Vinson is the only member of the family now residing in Milledgeville. He married Miss Annie Morris, and the children are: Mrs. J. W. Cannon, Cordele, Ga., Mrs. M. J. Guyton, Dublin, Ga., Mrs. Thos. Pollard, Jacksonville, Fla., Hon. Carl Vinson, M. C., Washington, D. C., Edward Vinson, Cordele, Ga., Fred Vinson, Honduras, C. A., Lieut. Wilbur Vinson, U. S. A., Ft. Benning, Ga.

One of the early settlers of Baldwin County was Mrs. Harriett Singleton Morris, wife of Thomas H. Morris. They were married in Jones County, Ga., Feb. 4, 1851, and early moved to Baldwin County, in the Pleasant Grove neighborhood. Mr. Morris died the first year of the Civil war, and Mrs. Morris died in Milledgeville, May 27, 1912, in her eighty-first year, leaving the following children: Mrs. E. S. Vinson, Milledgeville, Ga., Mrs. Ida Armstrong, Macon, Georgia, Mr. Gus Morris, Milledgeville, Ga., Rev. T. H. Morris, Dallas, Tex., and the late Mr. Chas. Morris, Milledgeville, Ga.

Mrs. Harriet Singleton Morris is a descendant of the Revolutionary soldier, Captain Matthew Singleton, of S. C. The Revolutionary records of S. C., show that Matthew Singteton was a friend of Nathaniel Greene, a great favorite of his, and considered by Greene a good soldier. Matthew was Captain of a company during the war, and his son, John was in the company. He became a Captain before the war ended.

The Singletons ranked, during the colonial period in Virginia, as one of the most prominent families. The Singletons of South Carolina were very active during the Revolutionary war, and their name appears in several different companies. One of the women of the family, Sarah Angelica Singleton, married the son of Martin Van Buren, and as Pres. Van Buren was a widower, his son's wife presided over the White House. We copy from the Washington Post, Nov. 15, 1914, the following:

"There is no figure in the period costume at the National Museum more admired than the graceful form recently placed in a case representing Mrs. Angelica Singleton Van Buren, mistress of the White House during the administration of President Martin Van Buren. Mrs. Van Buren's father was Richard Singleton, a large land owner and planter of Sumter County, S. C., a member of a family that ranked among the "blue bloods" of that exclusive state. To complete an education in keeping with her elevated social position, Miss Singtelon was sent for several years to Mme. Ireland's School in Philadelphia, and in 1837, she spent a portion of her holidays in Washington with her kinswoman, Mrs. Dolly Madison, who took pride and pleasure in presenting her to President Van Buren. She was a girl of rare beauty, and most accomplished, she at once became a reigning belle and one year later she was married, at her own home in South Carolina, to Maj. Abram Van Buren, eldest son of President Van Buren, a graduate of West Point, an officer in the army, who at the time was acting as his father's private secretary."

The same newspaper article goes on to describe her first appearance at the White House, and describes her costume. There are many descendants today in Milledgeville of the Singleton and Morris families, among them the Vinson family and the Morris family.

(Written by Mrs. M. J. Guyton—(Lelia Vinson).

The Vinson family, originally of Hancock County, was transplanted to Baldwin after this manner:

Ebenezer Callaway Vinson, tho' still a comparatively young man, began to suffer a physicial decline: he decided that the climate of South Georgia would be more agreeable, and therefore more desirable, as a place of residence. This thought perhaps as to the mildness of the climate was dominant, but the fact that the family owned a great deal of land thereabouts also had its weight as a determining factor. Accordingly, Vinson quitted his Hancock plantation and started out with South Georgia as his objective, to decide on the exact location for the future home of his family. He and an older brother had surveyed, for the government, large tracts of land in South Georgia.

Horseback travel was slow and he was not well, so when Milledgeville was reached, he resolved to tabernacle here. Even in that day and generation, Milledgeville offered superior school advantages. Mr. Vinson therefore made a
quick purchase of the plantation, for many succeeding years known as the Vinson place, situated three miles east of Milledgeville, with the expectation that it was to serve only as a temporary home for him and his family. As a lad, Ebenezer had become familar with the capital city; his brother, Tully Vinson, in later years, Gen. Vinson, represented Hancock County in the Legislature and the youth, Ebenezer, often accompanied him on his trips to Milledgeville. So this old time acquaintance with the town exerted its influence in changing his decision to
establish there his Lares and Penates.

Many years after the days when Tully Vinson was Hancock's representative in the legislature, old timers, remembering his name and fame, supported a young scion of the family from Milledgeville who sought political preferment in the Halls of Congress.

The new home in Baldwin indeed proved a temporary abiding place for Ebenezer Callaway Vinson. In two years time, on Dec. 25th., 1857, at the age of fifty, he passed on to the Great Beyond. He left his wife, Martha, and ten children as follows: Maria Jane, who became the wife of Col. Eli Gumming, of Wilkinson County; Anne, who married Thos. N. Beall, of Wilkinson; Wm. H. Vinson, who married Julia Beall, of Talbot County; Dora A., who became wife of V. Wm. Williford; Henry Crawford Vinson, whose first wife was Lou Brake, of Baldwin, and whose second wife was Lorene Wood, of McRae, Ga.; Lucie Catherine, wife of Wm. Pleasant Williams; Charlie, who died when thirteen years of age; Edward Storey, who married Annie Morris, of Baldwin County; Walter Dickson, who married Anna Caraker, of Baldwin County; and Mary Rebecca, wife of John Roberson. All, with the exception of Anne and Mary, had children and there is now a large family connnection, scattered widely.

Martha Dickson Vinson, the widow, had strength of mind and character and she "carried on" in the best sense, as a mother, and as manager of her plantation, for nearly fifty years after her husband's death. She was the daughter of Wm. Dickson and Lucy Crawford. The latter's death occurred, unexpectedly, at her home in Sparta, on the well remembered night "when the stars fell." A son of Lucy Crawford's uncle, and therefore her first cousin, was Wm. H. Crawford, Georgia's governor. Of him the great Napoleon said, after Crawford's visit to France, "He is the only man to whom I unconsciously feel impelled to make obeisance." That, for Crawford's appearance and bearing. The mother of Lucy Crawford was an Atwood and, according to family tradition, three times an heiress. Ebenezer was given the name of Callaway because that had been his mother's name. His two sisters, Levina and Martha, were Quakers. These side lights have their physological significance in the history of the family.

The only representatives, now in the county, of this once numerous family, are: Edward Storey Vinson, son of the first Vinson and his wife; and their son, Carl Vinson, representative in Congress of the Tenth District of Georgia. Dixon
Williams, with his wife and sons; and Mrs. Leverett Montgomery and her family. Mrs. Montgomery was Lois Scott, granddaughter of Win. H. Vinson. Mrs. Lucie V. Williams lives in Birmingham. She and E. S. Vinson are the only members of the original family now living.

Of Ebenezer Callaway Vinson, who planted the family in Baldwin Co., it would well be said in the words of Shakespeare, "He was a man, take him for all in all; I shall not look upon his like again." Of Martha, in the words of Proverbs, "Her children rise up and call her blessed."

229 Betty Talmadge, former wife of senator, dies at 81

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Betty Shingler Talmadge of Lovejoy, a hostess, cookbook writer, and the ex-wife of the late U.S. Sen. Herman E. Talmadge, died Saturday at Piedmont Hospital following a long illness. She was 81.

The graveside service for Ms. Talmadge will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Rose Hill Cemetery in Ashburn.

At her 1,200-acre Lovejoy Plantation in Jonesboro, 20 miles south of Atlanta, Ms. Talmadge hosted elaborate parties for political and media guests, and invitations to them were coveted. The parties were memorable, with Ms. Talmadge's pet goat walking about as guests sipped cocktails.

Ms. Talmadge also operated her home as a reservations-only restaurant, and hosted Japanese tourists at $5000 an evening for 100 guests. The visitors believed they were eating at and walking about a locale that was in "Gone With the Wind" ? a notion Ms. Talmadge encouraged. She claimed that Lovejoy Plantation is the inspiration for the home "Twelve Oaks" in the fictional book by Margaret Mitchell and in the MGM film, made on sound stages and lots in Culver City, Calif.

The book, film and Georgia's onetime most powerful political family were linked in 1940. That year Eugene Talmadge, a resident of McRae in Telfair County in south Georgia and then Betty Talmadge's father-in-law, purchased the Lovejoy farm. Betty Talmadge acquired it and $150,000 cash in her December 1978 divorce from Eugene Talmadge's son, Sen. Herman E. Talmadge.

Ms. Talmadge based her "Twelve Oaks" claim for the Lovejoy Plantation on the fact that author Margaret Mitchell had relatives, the Fitzgeralds, who had lived near the Lovejoy farm.

'Gone With the Wind' expert Herb Bridges of Sharpsburg, Ga., said: "The movie people sent research people to Georgia and all through the South. They visited, I'm sure, Betty Talmadge's house. But they looked at three dozen more.

"The movie people would say, 'We like the columns on this one, the windows on that one.' But as far as saying that Betty's house is a house used in the film, or actually used by Miss Mitchell in her story, it is in a way, but there were so many houses that were used, you can't flatly say that about any one of them."

While a U.S. senator's wife, Betty Talmadge was a prominent hostess and socialite in Washington, D.C. She was a frequent bridge partner of Lady Bird Johnson, who also visited her at Lovejoy Plantation.

Although a Democrat, Betty Talmadge hosted luncheons for Pat Nixon and Judy Agnew, the wives of President Richard M. Nixon and vice president Spiro T. Agnew, while their husbands were under fire during the Watergate scandal.

Ms. Talmadge was a food broker for the Talmadge country-cured ham label and Cagle's chicken hot dogs. She and her former husband once owned the ham-curing business and created the Talmadge ham label still seen in food markets; they sold the business in 1969.

Ms. Talmadge co-wrote the cookbook "How to cook a pig and other back-to-the-farm recipes," with Jan Robitscher and Carolyn Carter, published in 1977 by Simon & Schuster. She wrote "Betty Talmadge's Lovejoy Plantation Cookbook," distributed by Peachtree Publishers in 1983.

She stumped the panel on television's "What's My Line" in 1955, signing in only as "Betty Shingler." In 1983, Ms. Talmadge played a waitress in the made-for-TV movie, "Murder in Coweta County" filmed in Georgia.

At the Newport News, Va., shipyard in 1973, Ms. Talmadge smashed a bottle of champagne against the hull, launching the nuclear attack submarine Richard B. Russell, named for Herman Talmadge's former fellow U.S. senator.

Ms. Talmadge lost a race for the Democratic nomination for Congress from Georgia's Sixth District in 1978, finishing third. State Sen. Virginia Shapard won the Democratic primary runoff but lost in the general election to Republican Newt Gingrich.

Ms. Talmadge divorced Herman E. Talmadge, then a fourth-term U.S. senator from Georgia and the powerful chairman of the Agriculture and Forestry Committee, in 1978 but kept his last name.

They made front-page headlines across the nation in 1979. She said that Sen. Talmadge, then on trial before the Ethics Committee for violating Senate rules, kept large amounts of money in an overcoat in a closet at their Washington, D.C. condominium. She drew upon the fund to supplement her allowance. Although the senator testified he received small cash donations of $5 to $20 from political supporters, Betty Talmadge turned over to the Ethics Committee $7,700 in $100 bills. The Senate voted 81-15 in October 1979 to "denounce" Sen. Talmadge. He lost a 1980 bid for re-election.

The Talmadges were the state's biggest newsmaking couple during his years as a U.S. senator from 1957 to 1980 and earlier while he claimed the office of governor for 67 days in 1947; as he served without legal challenge as interim governor for 13 1/2 months in 1948-51; and while he served as governor in 1951-55.

The Talmadge family had Georgia's most powerful political machine from 1926 to 1980. Herman's father, Eugene Talmadge, was Georgia agriculture commissioner from 1927 to 1932; governor in 1933-37 and 1941-43; and was elected governor again in 1946 but died in December of that year before taking office.

Ms. Talmadge never remarried. Herman Talmadge married Lynda Cowart Pierce in 1984. He died in March, 2002.

Leila Elizabeth Shingler was born Sept. 17, 1923 in Ashburn, Ga., the daughter of Clinton F. Shingler Sr., a rural letter carrier, and Stella Julian Shingler. She attended the University of Georgia.

At 18, she married Herman Talmadge at the governor's mansion in Atlanta in December 1941; his father was then governor. It was Herman Talmadge's second marriage.

A son, Robert S. Talmadge, drowned at Lake Lanier at age 29 in 1975.

Surviving are a son, H. Eugene Talmadge of Lovejoy and eight grandchildren.

232 Bio

"Rev. John Martin, a pioneer missionary Baptist preacher of Southwest Georgia, lived to the ripe old age of 96 years. Sixty-five of those years he served churches regularly as pastor and preached on special occasions up to the time of his death, April 22, 1917. It was in the days of horse and buggy over rough roads in all kinds of weather, leaving home on Friday and returning on Monday. He received very little for his services; one year soon after the war between the states he was given a pair of socks by a widow woman, another church gave him seventy-five cents for the year. He never failed to serve a church because of pay. He owned his own plantation and lived on it. He said that his prayer was for enough at his command to live on, and he belived that would be given him. He lacked only four years of reaching the century mark and he left a very nice estate and he always lived comfortably. Such was his faith !
Living in a frontier country in his youth made his opportunity for an education was limited, but he had an alert and keen mind, was a close student all his life. He was an original thinker and eloquent speaker. The greatest joy of his life was to proclaim the Gospel of his Lord and Master Jesus Christ. He was noted for peculiar texts. One that made him famous as a preacher was made on the occasion of the Bethel Association at Fort Gaines. The theme was, "Big Things with Nothing in Them." Others were, "The Jugs Must Be Empty," and "He Hath Brought Me Into a Large Place." They are too numerous to mention. He was a man of deep convictions and lived up to them. Although living in an era when there was great partisanship in churches, he never tolerated prejudice against other denominations. He was deeply concerned in the welfare of his community and country. He was a Democrat and as long as he lived he had an abiding interest in all affairs that were for its promotion.
He was born in Union S. C., January 3, 1821. When he was one month old his parents moved to Jasper County, Ga., where he lived until he was ten years old, when his parents moved to Randolph County, where he lived at "Buford," later called " Bethel," with the exception of a few years from 1905 until his death, He lived in Shellman.
At the age of 17 years he was sent back to Jasper County to attend school. He met Martha Truitt, daughter of Riley and Bonnetta Truitt and married her November 18, 1838. They came to Randolph County to live; a few years later he bought the lot of land adjoining his father's home and lived on it for 65 years. Rev. and Mrs. John Martin were married 70 years at the time of her death, July 15, 1908.
Martha (Truitt) Martin was the youngest child of Riley Truitt and Bonnetta (Smith) Truitt born May 27, 1821, near Shady Dale, Jasper County. Too much cannot be said of this truly great woman coming with her culture of heart and mind , she lived the life of a missionary, dispensing hospility to the rich and poor. She felt that by entertaining people in her home she could enable them to attend preaching in that day of slow travel and long distances that could not have come otherwise. She was a woman that looked well to the ways of her household.
She felt it her duty to further the sending of the Gospel by looking after the farm and store so that her husband might not have anything to hinder him in his work as a minister, this she did with great efficiency. She was a woman of charming personality and calm judgement. She was a natural nurse of the sick, in that day of long distance to a doctor, and during the Cival War when there no were no doctors she ministered to the sick over a wide territory and helped the needy. She was intensely patriotic.
She was descended from two revolutionary soldiers, her grandfathers, Purnal Truitt of Delaware and Elijah Smith of Maryland. They both moved to Wilkes County after the Revolution. She felt pride in belonging to these great heroes that helped establish this great Government of the U. S. A., and wanted her posterity to treasure their memory. She gave two sons to the Southern Confederacy, James Marion, who served with the Early County guards in Company G, 13th Ga. Regiment, through the war, and Riley Truitt enlisted in Calhoun County Guards and served in the 12th Ga. Regiment. He was a prisoner at Elmira, N. Y. for eight months before the war closed.
Martha Truitt Martin was one of the most consecrated Christians, nothing kept her from her Church services. She reared thirteen of her own children to adult age and two grandsons, and in her old age for six years she cared for a little granddaughter."

Mary Evancho Laborde, age 89, of Hueytown, died August 19, 2003. She attended Hueytown United Methodist Church; was a member of St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church. She was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond Romar LaBorde. Interment: Crestview Memorial Gardens

One last kiss; Wife dies kissing husband in coffin -
After 64 years of marriage, Mary Evancho Laborde couldn't bear to let her husband go. She said that, just before she leaned over Raymond Laborde's casket at his funeral this week to kiss him goodbye a final time. The sorrow was too much; her heart stopped and she died right there. On Thursday, Raymond, 88, and Mary, 89, were buried together in much the same way they had lived, side by side. "It's almost like a fairy tale, a sad fairy tale," said the Rev. Jack Hendricks Jr. of First United Methodist Church in Hueytown. "You don't see many people who live together as long as they did that go out together. I would say it was God's grace." Their love story spanned six and a half decades, beginning when Raymond first spotted Mary at a Fairfield bakery where she worked. He was immediately smitten, but she was popular and he had to work for her affections. He used to hide in the bushes when she had other dates, friends said, to assess his competition. But persistence, and charm, won out. "He was a very romantic person," said niece Pat Evancho. "He didn't mind telling you she was as beautiful as the day they got married." They were separated only once, when Raymond, who later retired from U.S. Steel, served in the Navy during World War II. Mary gave birth to their only child, John Raymond, while her husband was away. He was of French descent and attended the Methodist church in Hueytown; she was Czechoslovakian and a member of St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in Brookside. Religion was important to both of them and they embraced each other's beliefs, alternating between the two churches. In their younger days, they enjoyed traveling and spending time with their son and grandchildren. In recent years, Raymond worked in the yard and fixed broken toys for the neighborhood kids. She kept a meticulous home and cooked three full meals for Raymond each day. They kept to a routine, getting their hair cut on Tuesdays, mopping on Wednesdays and grocery shopping on Thursday. "It was exactly what a marriage should be," Hendricks said. On Saturday, Raymond cut the grass and asked for liver for lunch, which Mary obliged. His heart gave out later that day. In the days that followed, Mary tried to remain stoic but her heart, too, finally gave out at Raymond's funeral on Tuesday. "I believe if she were writing the script, which we don't write the script, she would have chosen to go with him," said the Rev. John Simmons, also of the Methodist church in Hueytown. The Labordes' granddaughter said she can see beyond her grief to the blessing. "They wanted to be together forever," she said, "and they are."
