William Edmond born 1832 married Sarah Carthrine Tidd (Todd) Born Abt 1835 Married 25 July 1854 in Marion County Georgia or William Thurman Daugherty (the Thurman might be Edmond). Now in the 1860 Federal census William and Sarah are in a household with two children Mary age 5 and Leroy age 3 also in the same house are Armstrongs. Their family lists John & Eliza with kids Martha Ann Armstrong (our Grandmother) Age 25, Joseph,john, Pinkney,Smith.  William states he was born in Ga also Sarah and mary and Leroy.

He is 45 and she is 30. Mary is 15 and Levi (Leroy) is 13  Now Joel age 11 Heneah age and Lurilla age 3 ( the aunt that sleep with everyone in Nauvoo). He states born in Mississippi and she was born in Ark everyone else Alabama. The next census 1880 Winston county Alabama.  William’s last name is now Dougherty with wife Anne. He is 50 and she is 43.  Mary is gone Nathan is 15 (I think this to be Levi) Joseph B 15 (I think this to be Joel) Lurilla age 13 (and lookin gooood). Aubrey age 9 and Reese P. age 4. States he is born in Georgia and Anne is born in Georgia also Nathan . Joseph in Alabama lurilla in Ala Aubrey in Ala Reese in Alabama. This is just a side story not fact Lurilla / roehler/ lourella was said to have had 5 sons out of wedlock by 5 different fathers each took on the fathers first name and kept last name as darty. Lee Dodd had a son Lee darty Sr by Luella. Dave charles Dodd or D.C. Dodd and Curt Dodd.

Now own grandma Sudie lists all the kids that Nathaniel & Rhoda had except for John B; 1918 and George b; 1920 and Lee e. b;1922. This is how Sudie stated the Darty record;  This verse stops blood Ezekel 16 Chap 6.   Nathanel Darty Born July 30Rhoda Brock Born July 31 1880  Married Feb 1 1899 Mr  Darty passaway May 30, 1914 Mrs Darty  passed away Jan 19, 1944         William Thurman b; April 4, 1901        George Washington b; March 19,1905        Opie Byron b; Oct 4, 1907        Floyd Lee b; Dec 5, 1909        Charlie Vester b; June 3, 1911        Doshie Ann b; Aug 24, 1914         There are some of the infants that didn’t live I have no record of them. Opie Bryon Darty family Minnie b; July 18,1912Christopher Columbus b; April 28,1945Rhoda Lavis b; Sept 28, 1947 died Jan 27, 1948

Here is a death notice in the Detroit news  Virgil Darty b; july 8, 1934 Nauvoo Alabama to John Patrick Darty  and Annie Harbin Darty. Died November 26, 2007. in Michigan. Graduated from Carbon hill High in 1953 . Virgil retired from Mcclouth steel.  He is preceded in death by his grandparents Nathaniel and Rhoda (cagle) Darty .  For some reason they listed Rhoda as Cagle not Brock also our family (dads Nelson) did not visit or even knew about this darty.  Maybe this is offspring of illegitimate darty’s. (Yeah, like we are a pure line)

 In the 1930 marion county Alabama census mom Virlie Darty is listed as Verlie Clark age 4 and in the household of John F Benson 52 wife Emma Benson age 50 Francis Benson (my Granny) age 18 Walter age 16 Maloy age 13 Lucius (favorite uncle) age 11 Also Ada Clark age 28 Ila Mae age7 Eva age 5 Lillie pearl age 4 Millard Ramer age 18. So mom was passed off as a clark when Francis was her real mom. Francis mom was an ingle (Emily) emily’s sister was Lucy Jane and she married James M Head who had James Head (my g-pa). My g-pa James head and g-ma francis were 1st cousins (never married just a flash in the pan). Mom was kept secret for 17 years she didn’t know you daddy was. This was on a board information only;   My dads name was Floyd kenneth ugene Darty his dads name was George Washington Darty he had 3 brothers Raburn,Bear, alton  darty. I was told by him that there was 4 brothers that was given 40 acres there was a family disagreement the 4 split company and changed their last names.George Washington, Thurman , vester don’t know positive on the last one I think it was John. There seems to be a link or trail between Florida / Georgia / Alabama / Oklahoma  not so much Oklahoma I think the Darty’s that had a lot of Indian went that way. Example  is David Darty lived Shawnee, Pottawatomie Oklahoma Born in Alabama 1942 died Okla 1984 Annie Darty born Ala Lived in Shawnee, potawatomie, Okla .  The Heads also came from that area. D. C. Darty born Winston Ala 1886 went to Polk county Florida. Here is a story about David Charles “D C “ Darty.  He killed a man in Winston county Alabama and then fled to Florida in the middle of the night. Supposedly he became a sheriff  in Florida. His WW1 draft registration says he was a homesteader with a wife and 4 kids as of june 10, 1917  On the 1930 Polk county, Florida census it does list D.C. as chief of police. Florida’s motto s/be kill a man become a cop…                                                                                                                        NAUVOO

 The following excerpts were taken from "Walking Sipsey, The People, Places, and Wildlife" by Jim Manasco. Many of the Cherokees refused to leave their ancestral home and fled to the hills. Everyone knows the story of the Cherokees in the Smokey Mountains, but few realize that many hid in Alabama. In the mountains of Jackson County there is today a tribe of Cherokee Indians that have always been there. Last year for the first time in 154 years the
government gave them their school money for that year, 932 of them. There was another band of Cherokees from the south side of the Tennessee River in the Decatur area that fled into Walker County. Where they went has remained a mystery. The old family records show many of the settlers in the forest were marrying Indians. Where were they coming from? They were supposed to be in Oklahoma. They had to be hiding in the forest. The Indian Removal Act was passed in 1836. From the year 1824 to 1850 Winston County was a part of Walker. So Indians fleeing to Walker County at the time of the removal could have come to what is now Winston. They would have gone to the least desirable and least inhabited part of that area for they were fugitives in hiding. In 1853, A.J. Thomas came to the Plains from South Carolina. It has been told in the family that when he came to the Plains that there was an Indian village near where he settled. His great-grandson Charlie still lives on the old Thomas home site and remembers the story well and the general area of where that site was. These Indians were living here in their village 27 years after they were marked for removal. The only way they could have survived that long without detection was by the white settlers protecting their secret hiding. Though I had not heard this story until a week ago, I had no reason to doubt it and every reason to suspect it. And he also adds – Then more came and with a foothold increased in numbers and began to move deeper into the forest. Some of the stronger moved deep into Indian country taking Indian wives and living as Indians. One offspring of those mixed marriages was John Brown .John Brown, while only a half breed, was truly Indian. His white father made it possible for him, as an Indian, to see clearly both worlds that one day would come to conflict. He was literate and wise, a combination that elevated him to the rank of Chief of the Cherokees. His band of Cherokees lived on their ancestral lands in Marshall County, Alabama. The principal village called Browns Village
and its exact location is unknown.
Chief John Brown, as other Indians of stature, had three wives,  Wati , Sara, and Selu (say-lou). He had many children and loved his people dearly. With the Revolutionary War he was forced to make a decision that would be in the best interest of all his people. He had already seen his father's people infringing on his mother's land. The British promised him that if he would ally with them they would not allow the colonists to cross the mountains. He had no choice but to ally with England for that was what was best for his people. The British lost and Chief John Brown, as other chiefs in the nation, watched closely the formation of the new America. They greatly admired the Constitution created by the new nation and drafted one of their own patterned after it. Little did they realize how worthless the treaties with this new nation would be. So the white man crossed the mountains. With this the Indians had to move farther from their ancestral grounds. It is not known how many children Chief John had; it is known that the names of some of those children were Richard, David, Katherine, John, and William. These are the native sons and daughters of Alabama. The most historically recorded of these is Richard. As the Cherokees began to spread out across Alabama, Richard had moved deep into the Creek Nation. Richard, like his father, had risen to the rank of chief and had founded a Cherokee village by the name of Turkey Town across the Coosa River from what is now Centre. Chief Richard Brown had received word that Creeks were going to attack his village. He requested help from Andrew Jackson who sent troops to Turkey Town. The Creeks did not show and while they were there Andrew Jackson enlisted Richard and his warriors into his army. It was from here his next encounter with the Creeks would be Horseshoe Bend. After the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, Col. Richard Brown moved his band deeper into the wilderness. They settled on Blackwater Creek near the present town of Nauvoo. For some reason, the remaining Creeks sought refuge with Chief Richard Brown in north Walker and southern Winston Counties. History states that the Creeks numbered 200 and were led by Chief John Shannon. It was for these Indians that most of the creeks in the Rocky Plains were named, Browns Creek the most obvious. Conclusion of this story is “There an Indian behind every tree”.

THE INGLES AND HALLMARKS CONNECTION  (Lucy Jane Ingle and Emily are my G-ma’s)


Two sons of Peter Ingle, one of the founders of Winston County had an impact on Marion County.  Peter Jr and his entire family settled there after moving to Mississippi, back to Winston County and finally permanently to Marion County.


Peter Jr, wife Melvina and a number of his family are buried in the Buttahachee church cemetery (also known as one of the many Burleson cemeteries)  on SR135.  He was married a second time to Sarah Weatherly.  She is buried in the Weatherly Cemetery next to her parents.


John Ingle married Sarah Hallmark, daughter of George Hallmark after the death of his first wife Ruth – who was the mother of his first two children.


John died at an early age and is buried in the Ingle-Wakefield cemetery between Nauvoo and Lynn along with his father Peter and several of his brothers and sisters.  Sarah is buried in Old Poplar cemetery in Marion County.


Peter Jr born in Lincoln county, Tennesse was the son of peter and his first wife Jane Odom.  Jane died in Jefferson county in 1916, according to their son Jacob Odom.


Peter settled close to Hackleburg where he raised his family of nine children, Elizabeth, Sarah, Dicesa, Jacob O, Mary Louisa , Martha, Peter H, John W, Lucian, and Mary Frances.  Many of the family are buried in the Hackelburg cemetery.


John was the first child of Peter Sr and Catherine Tune.  He was born in Winston County in 1868 and died 1926.  His wife the former Sarah Hallmark lived until 1900.


Of the two children born to John and his first wife Ruth, John S died prior to his father in 1861, Sarah married William Ligon Norris and they are both buried in the Norris cemetery in Walker County.


The children of John and Sarah Hallmark Ingle were Harman, John T, Andrew J, and William H Harman never married.  John t. married Martha ann and both are buried in the weeks cemetery.  Andrew married Frances Green and both are buried in the Breen cemetery.  William H. married Martha E Tucker and they are buried in Bethel church of Christ cemetery.


When Sarah moved back to Marion County after John’s death, She lived with her widowed mother (her father was killed during the civil war).  She was shown in the census as Sarah Hallmark and her children were also called Hallmark.  Later census showed them correctly.


She later sold the land in Winston County she and john had owned and purchased land in Marion County and remained there until her death. We have a record of her filing for permanent status in her homestead having improved it in accordance with the requirements.


This is a quick reference for our connection to the Ingles (mom’s side)


Peter Ingle and Jane (Odom ) Ingle –she died young  had the following kids

William / George / Peter / Jasper / Jacob o / P.j. / Mary J / Charles e / John B / Robert L / Thomas f. these people would be like ½ uncles and aunts. Next He married again to Catherine Tune they had John / murray / Robert / Paul.

Now Paul Ingle (Jr) married  Susan (Jackson – Green )  They had Cass / Kizzie /Becky / Martha / Emily Jane (my g-ma) / Lucy Jane (my g-ma) / David / Young Paul / George / James.

Now the above Lucy jane married James Madison Head who had William / James / Troy /Susan Mahala Savanna Head (or Sudie My G-ma) Who had Joseph nelson (my dad) /Jessie / Frank / Floyd / Clarence / Marie / Meledith / William

Also Emily Jane married John F Benson who had Susan Francis Benson (my g-ma Francis). Then Francis had Mom (by james head her 1st cuz).




George Hallmark and Sarah Tipton were married January 9,1822 in Jefferson county Alabama.  They lived in Fayette county for a while before moving to the Rock City area of Marion county in 1851. 

The Hallmark family was Primitive Baptist and attended church at Old Poplar Springs.  They were peaceable people when the war came, but the war dealt them some deadly blows.

They had three sons, James w, Thomas F and George N who joined the Union Army in July 1862.  This caused the confederate home-guard to give special attention to the Hallmark family.  Sometime in 1863 Ann (george and Sarah’s daughter) was shot and killed while standing in the doorway of their house.  She is buried in the Weeks cemetery (b;1837 d; 1863, 26 years old)  George, the father of Ann, was killed in 1864 and he is also buried in the weeks cemetery (1805 – 1864).

The oldest son, James w, never returned home from the war after receiving a certificate of disability for discharge.  He was sick and in the Louisville, Kentucky Hospital.  He was middle aged when he joined up and left his wife.  Mary ford Hallmark, and children at home to make their own way and be harassed by the home-guards.

Thomas f was age 33 at the time.  He was discharged from Nashville, Tenn. January 28, 1863.  He never returned home. He left his wife, Phebe Holcomb Hallmark, and children.

George N died November 3, 1862 in the Nashville, Tennessee Hospital of German measles followed by typhoid fever followed by not breathing anymore. He was 22 years of age.

George and Sarah had another son, John m to join the U.S. army.  He was too young at the time his brothers joined, but by December 22, 1863.  He told them he was 18 and enlisted at Camp Davis, Mississippi.  John M was the only one of the Hallmark boys alive by the 1880 census.

Sarah was still living when the 1870 census was taken.  Somehow, she had managed to survive the turmoil of the war. She passed away sometime after 1870.  She is buried by her husband and daughter.  The dates on her tomb-rock are not clear.

The war crushed the Hallmark’s families. The Hallmarks did not believe in having slaves, or being slaves to anyone, and many of them lost their lives because of that belief.    



This has been an old story in my life my Grandmother lived in our home David Andrew O,Marys home for 20 years Mary Ingle was born in 1858.  Mary Ingle O,Mary third child of Andrew Jackson Ingle moved to our home in 1900.


After I was grown had gone to college had majored in history.  I paid close attention to Andrew Jacksons history. after comparing it to my Grandmothers stories and stories of Grand Children of Peter Ingle, Robert Ingle were same as my Father David Andrew O,Mary lived with Andrew Jackson Ingle most of his early life.  He went to Gadfry College then located near Double Springs Alabama.


Back before the war for Independence Paul Ingle and Abram Odom came from Germany to settle near Cowpens, S.C.  Andrew Jacksons people lived nearby Andrew Jacksons father died leaving his wife and three boys.


Two of the boys the older ones were taken prisoners by the British and killed latter.


Andrew Jackson was 14 years old and received a scar he carried to his grave from a British soldiers sword for refusing to blacked the soldiers boots.


Andrew Jackson was born in 1776 and Paul Ingle has a son named Peter Ingle born in 1776 a while after the Revolutionary war Paul Ingle, Abraham, Odom and Andrew Jackson moved to Tenn. Near town of Fayettville. Andrew Jackson was same age of Peter Ingle and lived in same home of peter Ingle.


Abraham Odom had a daughter named Jane about 1805 Peter Ingle married Jane Odom. Graves of the Odoms and Paul Ingle are around Fayetteville, Tenn.


Andrew Jackson was same age of Peter Ingle and lived in home of Paul Ingle Peter had some girls that I won’t discuss now.


His four boys were George born in 1810 Peter Ingle was born 1813 buried in Marion County Alabama near Hackelburg Alabama at Buttahatchee School.  William was born 1814 and J.O. was born in 1816 the record states that Peter moved to Alabama in Huntsville area Where J.O. was born and Jane Odom Ingle died that year.


Peter Ingle had gone with Andrew Jackson to run Indians from New Orleans.  After New Orleans trip,  Andrew Jackson and Peter Ingle came back to Tennesse in 1817 Andrew Jackson was called upon to run Indians from Florida  Peter Ingle went with Andrew Jackson on the Florida trip.  Peter bearing the rank of  Second Lieutenant.


On his trip back Andrew Jackson met a woman named Cathern Poore later she had a boy and named him Andrew Jackson Poore.


When Andrew Jackson Poore was about one year old, his mother Catherne Poore died which was about 1818.  In 1819 Alabama became a state Andrew Jackson came to Huntsville, Alabama.  Where his friend Peter Ingle lived on Andrew Jackson place which was 25,000 Acres.


After getting to Huntsville he found that the Poores had brought Andrew Jackson Poore to Peter Ingle.  Andrew Jackson not being married to Catherine Poore as Alabama had just been made a state.  Andrew Jackson and Peter Ingle made a trip to South Georgia to collect a $25,000 debt owed to Andrew Jackson from a deal with people named Allisons.


Then back on horseback through Pinson Valley in Jefferson County Alabama, looking for place for Peter Ingle to move and carry Andrew Jackson Poore.


In 1829 Peter Ingle moved to Penson Valley Jefferson County Alabama.  Under the leadership of Andrew Jackson land grant was arranged for Peter Ingle.


The record is in Jefferson county court house basement records. Where it shows Peter Ingle entering said land in August 1821.  Peter Ingle lived in Jefferson County about eleven years.  On his first trip to New Orleans He met Cathern Tune who was then living near Carbin Hill Alabama.  Peter Ingle married her in Jefferson County.  He reared several boys and girls in about 1840 – 1844. Peter Ingle and his wife Cathern Tune Ingle moved to near Nauvoo, Alabama. He entered land on a Land Grant where he lived until 1849 When he died and is buried by his wife Cathern Tune Ingle with some of his children buried near him at Wakefield Cemetery near Nauvoo, Alabama.


Andrew Jackson Poore lived with William and George Ingle in Penson Valley.  Land given to them to keep Andrew Jackson Poore (Poor Andy) They called him.  Poor Andy was educated in Jefferson School system, After he finished his schooling in Pinson Valley.  He came to Peter Ingles near Nauvoo, Alabama.  Poore Andy being near 21 years of age.  Peter Ingle thought he should give him some land.  He had given Peter Ingle 600 acres of land in Marion county records are in tax books there.


Peter Ingle was sick and he told Poor Andy that he was not his son Andrew Jackson had died in June 1845


Peter Ingle then told Poore Andy his long kept secret with his old friend Andrew Jackson that he was to keep until his death.  So he told Poor Andy that he was Andrew Jacksons son that he had agreed with Andrew Jackson to keep the boy and rear him.


In 1848 Peter Ingle decided to give Poor Andy His name.  So Poor Andy went before legislature in Montgomery Alabama had his name changed to Andrew Jackson Ingle This is on record in Montgomery dated Feb 29,1848.


Andrew Jackson Ingle married Rebecca Tittle They had daughters named Nancy Elizabeth, Josephine, Mary Ingle O,Mary, Marriah, Buchannan, Alice.  The boys names a Jasper Ingle and Newton Ingle.


The girls all lived and married around Lynn and Nauvoo, Alabama.  The boys Jasper lived in Mississippi and Oklahoma Died buried at Maude Oklahoma.


Newtom lived around Double Springs


Andrew Jackson Ingle built a two story home in Double Springs across from court house which is still standing.  He and his wife are buried at Fairview cemetery near Double Springs Ala.


He gave all his children a lot of land.

 I would like to add that I have looked and tried other avenue's and spellings of out line. None of them cames as close as the Thomas Daugherty line. Because of the thomas line comming from Georgia and ending up in the northern part of Alabama C
