stevie forester hi, jesse
james calendar forester is buried at the location that I gave you before. Its area is called bold springs georgia
near lawrenceville.
martha a mayfield married james forester on 12-15-1844
she died young from a epidemic(cholera)in 1857.
some of the tombstones are missing I am not sure
if she is buried with james or not because he married
again.
james was in the civil war company g 42nd regiment of
GA.
james was born 05-10-1823 & died 12-10-1883.
james was my great,great,great, grandfather & I found
his grave from tales from my great uncle about when he was a kid visting the grave site with his father.
james & marthas kids were as follows
william john 08-20-1846 to sept. 1913 (my great great)
sarah e born 1848 d. unknown married henry t peavey 08-30-1866 walton county
mary b born 1850 death unknown
samuel born 1850 death unknown
martha j born 1857. death unknown
there are some infant graves along side of james grave
I am not sure if they were still born or died from epidemic.
this cemetary is sad because I have never seen so many
childrens graves from small pox & other epidemics.
I live in palm coast fl now but I am orginally from the lilburn
lawrenceville georgia area.
I will be in the atlanta area the week of 12-18-2008
I would be happy to show you the cemetary
if you would like.
thank you for your reply & I hope my information is helpful

William Jesse Mayfield, Sr. Hi Stevie, Thanks so much for the additional info, it was very helpful. What is your email address?

Anyway here is info on Martha side of the family:

12 Nov 2008 Family Group Sheet
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Husband: Robert MAYFIELD, Rev. #19 died at age: 80
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Born: 14 Jun 1796 in Georgia - Settled in Walton County GA - Monroe, GA by 1830 (see note 1)
Died: 11 Jan 1877 in Walton County GA - Monroe, GA
Father: Obediah W. "Obe" MAYFIELD #28
Mother: Sarah (SHAW) MAYFIELD #29
Robert participated in the Fourth or 1821 Georgia Land Lottery, ( County -
Morgan, Mil. Dist. - Harris, Lot; 199 & 160, Sect; 11 & 7).

Robert is shown in the US 1830 Census Records as having a total of 6
individuals in his household. These individuals would be: Robert, & wife Mary;
William Radford, Eli, & Martha Mayfield. The 6th individual is shown to be
from 70 to 80 years of age and I am presuming this to be Robert Mother Sarah
(Shaw) Mayfield, not 100 % sure on this since 20 years later in the 1850
Census shows Sarah as only 80 years of age? The 1830 Census might have been
marked wrong and should have been marked in the 60 to 70 age group. That would
make things match up as they should?

Sarah is shown in the 1850 Walton County Census records as being 80 years old.
She is Robert's Mother and his Father's, Obediah's, Spouse!
Robert Mayfield was a Pioneer resident of Walton County, Georgia. He settled
in the Walton County, Georgia Area in the years prior to 1830.

Sams - Page 51 - Book published by Foote & Davies, Division McCall Corporation
in Doraville, Georgia.}


Robert is shown in the Brantley, Walton County Census records as being 74
years old and married to a Cenna (Unknown) Mayfield. I presume at this point
that his first wife Mary Radford had passed away and that Cenna was his second
wife.

Source Debbie Hawkes Walton County Research. She sent me copies of pages from
"Our Southern Ancestors" - By Thelma Faye Cain Prince - Gateway Press Inc. -
Baltimore 1985. Found in the Uncle Remus Regional Library, 1131 East Avenue,
Madison, Georgia 30650. These pages show that at the time the Estate of
Benjamin Still was settled in the years 1846 & 1847 that Robert Mayfield was
paid $ 2.00 debt owned to him by Benjamin Still at the time of his death.

"According to my Aunt's, Lavada Clegg, Research Robert was the first Preacher
to Preach at Mount Vernon Church in Monroe, Walton County, Georgia. on Hwy 78
towards Athens, Georgia.

Note: Rev. Robert Mayfield, born 1796 & Family lived next dor to Floyd &
Catharine (Pere) McCARTY family in the 1850 US Cenusu records Walton County,
Census.

Note: In 1825 Robet Mayfield completed a badly needed Bridge at Tanner's Ford
on the Apalacgee River for $ 31.50.

M Child 1: Eli MAYFIELD, Sr. #15 died at age: 42
Born: 27 Jul 1822 in Walton County, Monroe, Georgia
Died: 28 Aug 1864 in Vicksburg, MS or Walton County, Monroe, Georgia (see note 2)
Buried: Aug 1864 in Burson Family Cemetery, Near Double Springs Baptist Church in Walton County, Georgia.
Spouse: Amanda Ross (BURSON) MAYFIELD #16 b. 25 Oct 1824 d. 07 Oct 1889
Married: 05 Sep 1841 in Walton County, Monroe, Georgia - Book D pg. 85
Eli Mayfield, Sr. born 27 Jul 1822 in Walton County, Gerogia & died 28 Aug
1864 - Vicksburg Mississippi or Walton County, Georgia. Husband of Amanda
Ross (Burson) Mayfield, born 25 Oct 1824 in Walton County, Georgia & died 07
Oct 1889 in Walton County, Georgia. she is burried in the Bay Creek Church
Cemetery, in Walton County, Georgia. Eli is burried in the Old Burson Family
Cemtery on Double Springs Road in Walton County, Georgia.

Eli was a 1st Sergeant, enlisting 4 Mar 1862 in the Confederacy. Company "G"
42nd Georgia Infantry Regiment WALTON COUNTY, GEORGIA. This Regiment was known
as the " WALTON BLUES ". Eli was captured at Vicksburg, MS on 4 Jul 1863 and
paroled there on 06 Jul 1863. He later died of disease on 28 Aug 1864. He was
only 42 years of age! "Note: My Aunt Lavada's research shows he died in July
instead of August, not sure which is right!" However his son Robert Adair
Mayfield was the Administrator of Eli's Estate in Walton County, Georgia. ---
Eli was in Co. G, 42nd Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Inf., Walton Blues.

Donna Hamn Posted a marriage record from Ancestry's "Georgia Marriages 1699 -
1944" indicating a marriage date for Eli and Amanda as 05 Sep 1840. My records
from the Walton County Courthouse records - Book "D" Page 85 indicate 05 Sep
1841. Need to Verify which is right!

Note: Found out that Eli was burried in the Old Burson Family Cemetery off
Double Springs Road in Walton County, went to investigate and found the site
to be untouched in over 65 years. It is overgrown and of the 33 grave sites
that are supposed to be their only one stands and the rest are just rocks!
This Cemetery has gone completly back to Nature and will soon be completely
erased from the Landscape! Sad, Eli was my Great Great Garndfather, wish he
could have been burried in a cemetery that had been Maintained! Thats one of
the problems with Small Family Cemeteries, They all die off and no one remains
to maintain the Family Cemetery!

Note: Martha Jane Mayfield applied for a Civil war pension after her her
husband's death.

Another Source: { From: Biographical Aouvenier Illustrated of Georgia and
Florida, 1889, Southern Histroical Press, The Rev S. Emmett Lucas, Jr.} States
the following:
" William R. Mayfield, was born in the same country and was by occupation a
farmer and mechanic. In 1862, he joined the Confederate army as a private with
the Forty-second Georgia regiment of infantry and was shortly afterward
promoted to first lieutenant, in which capacity he served until he was killed
at the battle of Gettysburg. He was the son of Robert Mayfield, who moved from
North Carolina and settled in Georgia at an early date. " Note: I need to
verify which is right, I know there were two Mayfield's that died in the War
in Mississippi and at least one in Gettysburg. I'm sure there were a few more
I have not found yet!

Note: Update to above info from Patti Smith's Rootsweb.com - Mayfield List
Posting of 23 Apr 2005 - email - PattiYocke@aol.com: Patti states the
following: " Based on the official record of date of William's death, the
dates of the Battle of Gettysburg, PA and Battle of Chicksaw Bayou, MS, family
lore is incorrect regarding where he died." According to this he died at
Chickawaw Gayou, MS in the Campaign against Vicksburg, MS. Thanks, Patti!

"William R. Mayfield was married in the mid to late 1840's to Martha J.
Hamilton, Daughter of Fielding Hamilton, of Gwinnett County, Georgia. This
Union was blessed with five children, Viz.; Wm. T., Andrew J., James H., Mary
E., and Louisa A."

Southern Watchman, February 25, 1863.


OBITUARY.

With a full sense of our loss, we would attempt the painful duty to record
the death of Lieut. Wm. R. Mayfield, who fell at his post in the battle of
Vicksburg, Miss., on the 29th of December, 1862, when the Regiment was ordered
to leave the entrenchments and meet the enemy in the open field. As he had a
sword, he took a gun also, and marched out to meet them. When the enemy came
in full view he raised his gun and said he thought he could kill one, but did
not fire until the command was given to fire, which he did amongst the first
that fired. At the same instant a ball struck him in the side and he fell,
mortally wounded. Being asked if he was shot, he said “Yes, I am a dead man.”
He then caught a bush that grew near and was trying to get up, when a cannon
ball struck him which ended his mortal life. Thus died a brave soldier and
indeed a good man – one beloved by all who knew him, for a more generous heart
than his never beat in the bosom of man. His wife and children loved [him]
almost to idolatry, nor did they love him for naught; for he was a husband and
father in the true sense of the word – one of the most kind, indulgent and
affectionate the world ever saw . . . He joined the Methodist church in 1853.
In the death of Lieut. Mayfield the church has lost a firm member and their
beloved class-leader, the Confederate army a kind and brave officer, Walton
county one of her best citizens, the community a useful man. He was in the
bloom of life, being in his 35th year. He served as Justice of the Peace for
years. At his country’s call he volunteered under Capt. McCollum, 42d Ga.
Reg’t, to go to contend for our honor, freedom and homes. Having the offer of
a substitute gratis, he refused and said he would go and defend his own
rights. Before he left he told his grief-stricken wife that if it was his lot
to fall by the hand of the enemy, she might rest assured he was resigned to
his lot . . . And when the history of this cruel war shall have been written,
the name of Lieut. William Radford Mayfield may be registered among the
bravest of the martyrs that have fallen.
He has fought his last battle on earth,
His body lies cold in the tomb,
His soul, (we believe) having passed the new
birth,
Is gone to its heavenly home. A
FRIEND.

F Child 4: Mary Elizabeth 'Molly' (MAYFIELD) ODUM #22 died at age: 76
Born: 08 Feb 1831 in Walton County, GA - Monroe, GA 1
Died: Abt 1908 in Walton County, GA - Monroe, GA 1
Spouse: John W. ODUM #16940 b. Abt 1838 d. Abt 1909
Married: 31 Dec 1871 in Walton County, Georgia 1
Mary Elizabeth 'Molly' was the second wife of John W. Odum, He was first
married to Mary's sister ELiza Jane Mayfield. I presume after her untimely
death, John then married her sister Mary Elizabeth 'Molly' Mayfield. Mary
Mayfield Odum had no children of her own, she raised her sister's children.

According to the 1870 Monroe, Walton County Census Records, Mary E., 37 years
old, is still at home with her father, Robert, age 74 years of age. There is
also a Cenna Mayfield, age 55, in the household, listed as keeping house. This
very well could have been the (Unknown) daughter of Obediah "Obe" W. Mayfield,
Roberts father, and therefore Roberts sister ? Ofcourse there would have been
some 19 years difference in their ages, however this was not uncommon since
the families were so large back in those days. More research is needed here
to clairify just who this Cenna Mayfield is ! Right now I even have her listed
as a second wife of Robert Mayfield, I assumed Robert could have married again
after his first wife Mary Radford passed away, simply don't know for sure,
more research is needed!

Elizabeth 'Eliza' Jane was married to John W. Odum and this union produced
several children that are unknown at this time. After the death of 'Eliza'
John W. Odum married 'Eliza' Sister Mary E. Mayfield, this union produced no
children, however Mary raised her Sister's children.

Robert was settled by 1830 in Walton County. It also states that Robert built
a badly needed bridge at Tanner's Ford on the Apalachee River.

Chris Johnson Hello Jesse, I just got the invite and was bit surprised, I didn't know you were on this site. Anyway, I have to make a few corrections, on here, in order for everyone to see the connections. I don't have all of my information on this site yet (I'm attempting to "clean up" (get rid of non related people) some more from my information. Once I get that done, I'll be able to make up some Gedcom files and disks. But for now, I'll find what information I can for everyone. I know, kind of sounds like the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing, and they ain't clapping in the middle. Well, give me a little time and I'll get it all sorted out.

Take care,

Chris Johnson

Hillary Marzec Hello, Jesse! I just found some matches between our family trees, and have confirmed a couple. I wanted to take a quick moment to let you know that Mildred Louise (Paisley) Marzec is spelled "Marzec" (not with a "k"). This might lead to further matches?
