It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

It is not known where Julian came from originally, but it's theorized that he was a Huguenot, based on his choice to name his land for the Edict of Nantes (issued in 1598 and reviked in 1685, the Edict granted tolerance to the Huguenots in France).About 10 years after being transported in March of 1664/5 to Accomack County, VA by John Tilney, he proved his right to 50 acres of land in Maryland. In September 1681, he acquired 100 acres in Nanticoke Hundred. All of this land he called Nantes, perhaps after the Edict of Nantes or after the city by that name in western France on the River Loire. In 1710, he deeded 200 acres of land on the south side of the Nanticoke River and on Wetipquin Creek to sons John, Jacob and Joshua. Julian's will, probated in June 1718, mentions his wife Priscilla and his children. Julian died in 1718, and left land on the south side of the Nanticoke River and on Wetipquin Creek.

2500 acres of land for his outstanding service. However there is confusion as to whether this William (who married Mary Wall on 26-Jul-1750) is actually the brother to John.

m during 1765 at Maryland MD Robert Webb. Robert married again d in 1816 leaving 16 living children. By age we can tell some of the ones that belonged to Keziah and we know three who moved to Tennessee with Sophia Chears, Robert's second wife, after his death. Robert and his father, John Webb, were important in the history of Anson/Richmond County, NC and signed the Anson Reglators petition in 1769, protesting against exorbitant import taxes. Robert had approx five royal land grants, ownig 1000 acres and three slaves at his death. In his will he freed the slaves after seven years. He was the "Entry Taker" keeping book with record of ownership of land. He served 7 years in the State Legislature and 6 in the Senate. His daughter Susan Webb (11825), married Christopher Columbus Covington (11754) (info from Irene Webb Dorsey Mar 2002)

John, the grandfather of the Colonel, had won the affections of Elizabeth, the daughter of Rev. Robert Thomas, and, leaving his five brothers in Richmond co NC had settled upon the north side of Little Pee Dee in Robeson, NC, and was building up a comfortable home when the revolution came on. His sympathy with the patriot cause soon made him an object of dislike to his loyalist neighbors, who stripped him of his means of living and left him with nothing but his family. Leaving his wife and babies with her friends, he sought his revenge in the ranks of the patriot army. When the war ended, he settled upon a farm beside his brother-in-law, Nathan Thomas, upon the plains of Hebron. (Traditions by Col John Covington 1897 -

Rockingham Market Newspaper, 21 Jul 1927, Everett Sketches (an article on Covington history) refers to "Sugar Ben" and "Uncle Billy" as brothers. However according to Covington Lores and Legends they were in fact, 1st cousins. "Uncle Billy" being Willam, the 6th child of John Covington and Hannah Dockery while "Sugar Ben" was Benjamin, the 1st son of Banjamin Covington and Francis Mooreman. The fathers, John (b 1752) and Benjamin (b 1757) were the sons of William Covington (b 1730).
It is complicated to confirm actual facts as another source confirms he is son of same John but with his second wife Nancy Love (Wall) and that his middle name is Wall. I have therefore treated them as 2 separate individuals, be it with the same father. See also William Wall Covington (11438). I would be grateful for some clarification Confusion is also possible with William (11251) who is also listed as marrying a Rachel Thomas.

In 1784 Thomas traded this tract to Matthew Covington in return for 271 acres on Peters Branch of Cartledges Creeek, withnessed by John Covington and William Hunter".

No month or day are included, and the compiler makes no mention of these omissions though other marriages prior to 1742 include this information. As yet, there is no known reference for the marriage of this William to Rachel, so there is no proof of her maiden name as Thomas. Her first name Rachel is known by William's will. It is even possible that he never married a Rachel & the one mentioned in his will is his step-mother!!

In 1801 he purchased land on Brushy Creek of the First Broad River near his brother William. Thomas was on the 1782 composite roll of Sandy Run Baptist Church, Mooresboro, NC. Barbara Dixon Hurst says he and his family moved to Franklin Co., GA in the late 1780s. Land records and the rolls of the Sandy Run Baptist Church would indicate he did not make this move until 1803-1805. Some of his family probably stayed in NC. The Thomas Covington family is apparently the only Covington (Coventon) family at the Sandy Run Church. There are research sources who suggest that his parents were William (ref 10775) & Mary Walker. Birth dates tie up with the rest of their children in the Rutherford NC area, but as yet it is not possible to catagorically confirm or deny this view.

NEHEMIAH Covington. Ref: 5675. b about 1628 at Huntingdonshire  Supposedly the first Covington to reach America. Various sources suggest he first arrived in U.S. in 1652 before returning to England shortly after having had a brush with the U.S. law for being a "single man" and was fined a quantity of tobacco (??). He then returned 10 years later with his pregnant wife and 6 children in 1662. However many of these sources are contradictory with regards to dates.

Certainly the biggest myth expressed by researchers into Nehemiah is that he came from Coventry, Huntingdonshire, England. This is untrue as the only Coventry in England is in Warwickshire. However the village of Covington can be found in Huntingdonshire so this may be the cause of the confusion.

Another source suggests the following: "Immigrated into Virginia in 1647, a colorful individual whose life has been well documented in many Delmarva ( Delaware) genealogies. From being accused of 'thieving cheese' and 'defaming a woman' on the eastern shore of Virginia, as an indentured servant to High Sherriff in the new county of Somerset, in ye new province of Maryland."

Listed under patent of Nicholas Waddilow and Stephen Harsey in 1647, and under patent of Nicholas Waddilow in 1649. Signed the Oath to the Commonwealth Mar, 25, 1651 at Northhampton Co. Va. In 1666 and 1674 was sworn in as Constable in Somerset Co.
1st wife b c.1626, died Apr 1667 at Great Monie. 2nd wife was a widow, she died 1678 in Maryland. He was a Stone Mason, Grist Mill Builder & Tobacco Planter. First report of his name appears in Cavaliers & Pioneers: Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents & Grants, 1623-1666 by Nell Marion.

Said to have been transported to Northampton County by Stephen Horsey and Nicholas Waddelow 13 Jul 1647. He signed engagement of loyalty to Commonwealth of England, March 1651/2. Was before court and fined, Mar 1652/3 for "incontinency before marriage" and in April 1653, appeared before court on account of trouble he was having with a person to whom he was evidently an indentured servant. Nehemiah went to Monie section (later Somerset County, Maryland) in 1662, bought cattle from Thomas Leister on 4 June 1666, settled 300 acres called Covington's Vineyard on north side of Great Monie Creek in November 1674, stating his age as about 46 years. He married his 2nd wife Anne Ingram Jul 1667 who was the widow of Robert Ingram, they had been transported together to Maryland in 1664. Robert had died before Jul 1666 and they had had 3 sons, John, James & Robert. Nehemiah and Anne were married by William Thorne Justice of the Peace, Somerset County.

In 1662, with his wife and children, he immigrated to Somerset Co, MD, where he acquired a patent to 300 acres of land on the north side of Monie Creek in 1663/4. He called his land "Covington's Vinyard." In 1666 and 1674, he was sworn in as Constable in Somerset Co. Nehemiah was a prominent Quaker.

According to information provided to me by Martha Beth Wells she has seen a copy of the deposition with his signature, the double owl mark (two big O's with a horizontal line above) in the original records of the Northampton County VA Courthouse in Eastville VA

Some further contribution from Jean LaCoss <jclacoss@earthlink.net> in 2006 suggests the following:

"Nehemiah (b 1628) was a Quaker and refused to contribute to the Church of England. Therefore, he was brought into court many times and fined, once specifically for fornication before marriage, once for stealing for which he was fined and received "12 lashes on his naked shoulder."

John Covington. Ref: 5674. b about 1653 at Huntingdonshire.  Had a parcel of land laid out called "Sassafras Neck", lying and being in Somerset County on the east side of Chespeake Bay, partly marsh and partly woodland - Being in the mouth of King's Branch dividing from the land of Capt. Manning and land formerly laid out for Nehemiah Covington (see entry No.5675), 150 acres, 1 March 1680 conveyed by Thomas Walker (Som. Deeds 6:41). The land had been deeded to him and his brother, Nehemiah, by their father. At this time John was described as a planter.
By his will, signed 17 Oct. 1693, John Coventon of "Great Muney" bequeathed to wife Mary 200 acres, "Second Choice," to pass at her death to son Nehemiah, then (if Nehemiah should have no heirs) to son Philip. Son John was to have 150 acres, "Sassafras Neck," which was to pass to son Philip

If John shuld die without heirs. Bequests were also made to "cousins" Levin, Sarah, and Elizabeth Coventon and daughter Mary. Executors were to be "Brother Nehemiah Coventon" and Levin Denwood, Jr.; Rebeccah Coventon was a witness (Ann, Wills 2:317). 5 Children (b probably at Great Monie):

A practising Quaker, he was the general interpreter for the government on any treaty with Indians of Eastern Shore and amassed a comfortable estate. Will Liber 13, Folio 549, Annaplis dated 14 Feb 1710 shows him to have been a man of large means.

Will of Nehemiah Covington:

To friend Major General Edward Lloyd the value of Snow Hill 200 acres -or- one negro girl (slave) for his son Philemon Lloyd, Jr.

The following is an extract of correspondence found on the RootsWeb GenForum:

"I'm readingCharles S. Sydnor, "A Gentleman of the Old Natchez Region: Benjamin L.C. Wailes," Duke University Press, Durham, N.C., 1938. Sydnor says that Benjamin L.C.'s father Levin went to sea with Captain James T. Magruder, *a relative,* AND that Benjamin's wife Rebecca Susan Magruder Covington was a *distant cousin.*

Levin Wailes' grandfather (Benjamin, Sr.) married Elizabeth Covington, but I've been unable to make a connection with other Covington's who married Magruders. In short, where is the link between the Wailes and the Magruders or between Rebecca's father General Leonard Covington and Elizabeth Covington who married Levin Wailes' grandfather? My interest is that I'm descended from Levin Wailes' brother Edward Lloyd Wailes. Thanks."

Reply

"I think I can help you, my great-great grandfather James Ross married Sarah Howard Wailes. She was the daughter of Levin Wailes. Benjamin Wailes Sr. b in 1685 married Elizabeth Covington. They had to children: Levin Covington and Benjamin Jr. Benjamin Jr. married Sarah Howard. They had two children: Edward Lloyd and Levin. Edward Lloyd named for the Lloyd's of Prince George Co….Lloyd's of London family. Levin's children where Benjamin Lloyd Covingtion (BLC), Elizabeth Covingtion, Eliza Biggs, and Sarah Howard. BLC married Rebecca Covingtion, daughter of General Leonard Covingtion,who died in the Revolutionary War.

Elizabeth Covington, who married Benjamin Sr. was the daughter of Nehemiah Jr. and Rebecca Denwood. The Magruder's married into the Covingtion's generations and the Magruder's of Sharon Mississippi married into the Wailes. All of them at some point where in Prince George, Co…kissing cousins. Any more info I can help. Some of the information on other website are incorrect. Since you read the book, the forward is wrong. It states the BLC is the grandson of Benjamin and Elizabeth Covingtion…that is incorrect. He was the great-grandson."

Response

"Since posting that original message, I have received additional data. The most useful with respect to the Wailes family is: Ernest C. Allnutt, Jr.,

“The Wailes Family of Early Maryland and Some of Their Relatives on the Eastern and Western Shores,” Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin, 36, No. 2, Spring 1995, 145-177.

Captain James Truman Macgruder was Levin Wailes first cousin (son of Levin's mother's sister Elizabeth).

Benjamin L.C. Wailes and his wife Rebecca Susan Magruder Covington were both 2nd cousins, once removed AND third cousins, once removed. They may not have been familiar enough with their respective family trees to be aware of that. It is evident that Sydnor didn't have sufficient access to the family genalogies to know that in 1938." 

One story suggests that Levin Covington was a French Huguenot, he emigrated to U.S. in 1695 and settled in Maryland. However the more logical research suggests he was b in Somerset Co MD. He established himself on an estate acquired on the Patuxent River in Prince George's County, comprised in part of an original grant made to Thomas Pagett by Lord Baltimore in 1695 and which, according to the title deeds, was bounded in part by "the ancient lines of the Qunraico Manor", the original Indian name, it is presumed, of the place which is now known as "Aquasco". There, at an early age he died in the family mansion erected in 1725, and there were b and raised his descendents for three generations.

His will written 27 Jan 1724 and probate 24 Nov 1725, states: "To wife Margery & son Leonard, dwelling plantation equally during life of wife & at her decease to son Leonard and his heirs. To daughter Elizabeth & heirs 500 acre Hollydays Choyce. Residual of real estate on both Eastern & western shore, to be sold by executors if necessary for payment of debts: if not sold to be divided equally between son & daughter aforesaid equally. Executors to confirm sale of tract
formerly bought off Thomas Paggett to Abraham Wilson & heirs for £100. To wife, son & daughter residue of personal estate equally" - Overseers Leonard Hollyday, James Hollyday, Bejamin Wailes, Robert King.

According to John Covington's will dated 1803 he was "killed by fighting the Indians" (Elbert E. Covington (1980), "Covington and Kin," (McDowell Publ.) - however this is unlikely to be a true statement as he didn't die until 1809 and a transcript of his will dated Jan 1809, Richmond Co NC is as follows:

"Will of John Covington Sr.: will book 1 page 134 Jan 1809 Richmond Co. NC

Item, my will and desire is that my negro man, Moses should be sold to the highest bidder and the money arising from the sale should be equally divided between my three daughters, namely: Hannah Covington, Molly Thomas and Sally McDowell.

LEONARD Covington. Ref: 5693. (b 30 Oct 1768 at Aquasco MD d 14 Nov 1813 at French Mills NY aged 45) left school at an early age to the care of a widowed mother, he and a younger brother, received a good English education and made such acquaintance with the classics as the local institutions of learning of that day could impart. Nurtured in the midst of the U.S. revolutionary struggle for independence, it is probable that the scenes by which he was surrounded may have given that direction to his ambition and inspired that love of country which devoted him to her defence and controlled his latter destiny. Among the earliest recollections of his childhood was the watching from an eminence at his home, commanding an extensive view down the Patuxent, the predatory parties of the British soldiery, who in their boat excursions were want to ravage and plunder the estates bordering upon the river; the same point from which he witnessed the burning of the mansion of a near relative at Hallowing Point, opposite Benedict, by these marauders. Arrived at manhood and having grown to be a big, raw boned 6 footer who enjoyed running and wrestling, his country firmly established under a free government and with the prospect of a career of prosperity, he contracted an early marriage, and settled down upon his paternal acres in the avocation of a planter, that of his ancestors, with little expection that the career upon which he had entered would be changed to one of strife and perilous adventure. His wife and first child died soon after 1790 and this tragedy gave him the wandering habit. Of those deaths, he wrote; " made a wreck of my domestic enjoyments and rendered distasteful my rural pursuits". He went to Philadelphia, dallied with the law and worked as an aide to Thomas Jefferson, then Secretary of State, splitting his time there and managing the family estates back home. Restless at 23, he entered the United States Army as a cornet of Cavalry on 14 March 1792. Commissioned Lieutenant of Dragoons by General Washington in 1793 and volunteered to fight Indians with Gen. "Mad Anthony" Wayne, a

cavalryman who learned military tactics and mastered several Indian languages. While moving about in the northwest frontier, Covington struck up a close relationship with Merry Rivers, a beautiful, young, half-Irish, half-Indian maiden, whose father built forts for the Army. She travelled with him for several years and "cared for Covington's clothes, cooked meals and took care of his manly needs". He scouted for Wayne, located sites for forts, and at two major battles, Fort Recovery and Fallen Timbers, Miami, distinguished himself in battle. Wayne praised him in official reports for his "courageous, forceful" deeds and leadership. For his energetic charges, jumping over obstacles as in a steeple-chase, Indians gave him a name and reputation: "The Wind of Wayne". While Wayne was negotiating, Covington continued to go scouting for fort sites and settlements but returned to find that his love, Merry Rivers, had died of a summer fever. Although promoted to a captaincy he resigned 12 September 1795 to engage in further agricultural pursuits and politics back in Maryland.
m2 c.1796 Rebecca Mackall, & had 6 children, names not known. He did some surveying for Jefferson, his old boss, and was sometimes a guest at Mount Vernon. Farming was not always prosperous when tobacco prices fell, and its production wore out the land.

Covington and his brother kept looking for "a land of promise" even while he, the good Jeffersonian, served both for the Marland Senate and the House of Representatives. The frugal Covington didn't like Annapolis or Washington, judging from his letters, which complained about too much spending, too much drinking and gambling, and too much "swish-swish" from powdered ladies. "Those epicurean Gents not faithful to their wives will fritter away their marriages, rob their children, and break down the foundation of their existence". He had been a member of the State House of Delegates for many years and was elected as a Democrat to the 9th Congress (4 March 1805 to 3 March 1807), but he was a man of the outdoors, the frontier. He was appointed by his friend, now President Jefferson as Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment of Light Dragoons on 9 January 1809 and as Colonel on 15 February 1809, the only such regiment in the military. That year, he moved his family to the frontier of Mississippi and bought a plantation near Natchez that he called "Propinquity" because it was close to his base. Was in command at Fort Adams on the Mississippi in 1810 and took prossession of Baton Rouge and a portion of West Florida, making these years his best. He was training troops, skirmishing with Indians, surveying the wild country in Alabama and Florida, battling the Spanish, living outdoors, but able to return to his wife and plantation. When war was declared on Britain he was called back to Washington, ordered to the northern frontier and appointed Brigadier General by President Madison on 1 August 1813. He didn't like it but never flinched from an order. From Baltimore, he wrote to his brother "I long for victory and return to the embrace of my sweet family … If you must worry, do so about the strange gods of war". In November 1813 he was part of an invasion army of 8,000 men on 300 boats that had started at Sachets Harbour, N.Y, and floated down the St Lawrence River amid the Thousand Islands. To move

about dangerous rapids, the army had to land several times, and then back again to the water. Canadian Militia, with their Indian allies, resisted. Covington, the cavalryman par excellence, helped beat back these nipping attacks. On 11 November 1813, the Americans ran into a combined British-Canadian force, some 1,500 in all, near Williamsburg, Upper Canada, Ontario, some 70 miles from Montreal. The Battle of Chrysler's Field was fierce, one-fifth of those in it were killed or wounded. Covington led an attack on the enemy's right flank and helped drive them back. He was still on his horse urging his men forward against a second line of defence when a sharpshooter from a farmhouse shot him through the body. He fell where he always fought, at the head of his men, and survived but two days before he died at Frenchs Mills, New York on 14 November 1813. The campaign designed by Gen. James Wilkinson to capture Montreal, proved to be a

dismal failure and all were turned back.During his final 48 hours he lamented to his aide-de-camp Lt. Col. Winfield Scott and others, that he had to die so far from his wife, his six children and his brother. His last words were recorded as being "Independence forever". He was buried at French Fields, where Fort Covington, N.Y. was established by the Canadian border and named after him. Seven years later his remains along with those of other fallen veterans were removed to Sackets Harbour, Jefferson County, New York, on 13 August 1820 and the place of burial is now known as Mount Covington. Covington, Louisiana; Fort Covington, New York; Covington, Kentucky; Covington, Georgia; Covington, Ohio; Covington County, Alabama; Covington, New York; Covington, Pennsylvania and Covington County, Mississippi, are named after him.

“Fort Covington Namesake Died Leading Troops” - article by Erik M Zissu - Times Statt Writer FORT Covington - A British sharpshooter leveled his weapon and shortened the life of Brigadier General Leonard Covington 176 years ago. “He fell where he always fought, at the head of his men, and survived but two days," according to a serialization of a work by historian Leonard Jamison.

General Covington was killed while on horseback leading his brigade in what has come to be known as the Battle of Chrysler's Field, which was fought in nearby Upper Canada Village on Nov. 11,1813. The anniversary of that battle this year coincided with Veterans Day. Fort Covington, previously named French Mills, was named after the general who was brought to the shores of the Franklin County town where he died. But the body of General Covington was taken to Sackets Harbor in Jefferson County, along with the bodies of his aides who had also fallen during combat, on a barge in 1821. Today, the location of the general's grave, as well as that of Gen. Zebulon Montgomery Pike, who were the only generals to die during the War of 1812, remains unknown.

Historian Robert J. Brennan who says he has the most complete records of military cemeteries in Sackets Harbor, said it is uncertain whether the grave of the Maryland-b general will ever be located. But he has been trying to interest a newspaper in Covington, Kentucky, in starting a drive to place a marker at Sackets Harbor commemorating the general and his courageous leadership. Despite this project, the acts of General Covington have been revived somewhat by the placement of historical markers about Fort Covington in recent years. And in 1987, the Fort Covington Sun published 29 excerpts from Mr. Jamison's work about the little-known general Fort Covington Town Historian Jacqueline Harvey supplied several pieces of this historical writing that illuminates the general's last days and his death:

Through the fall of 1813, the American Army was battling the British and their fleet, a Canadian militia and various Indian bands. General Coviington participated in several of these conflicts that raged on both present-day U.S. soil as well as on the Canadian side of the St. Lawrence River. On Nov.10, 11 days after the general's 45th birthday, a contingent of soldiers and an accompanying flotilla moved down the river near Upper Canada Village. That night, the soldiers were forced to lie on their weapons to keep them dry from a heavy rain. Voicing apprehension about the ferocity of the engagements up to that point, the soldiers forced General Covington to address them regarding their duties. “We have no choice but to onward because without independence and liberty, there would be no choice," the general is supposed to have said. Whether these words had a calming effect on the soldiers, the brigade was up in the morning and continued to march along the St. Lawrence River toward Chrysler's Field. The British also advanced as the opposing sides reached the field. General Covington was not required to participate in the battle, but did so to aid the American approach.

As he rode with his men into the fight, General Covington moved toward the British artillery. After pushing them back from the left side of the attack, he attracted the attention of a group of sharpshooters who were holed up in a house on the field. "At this critical moment, while bravely leading his men, he was shot through the body. His fall disconcerted the brigade and a shower of grape shot at that moment scourged it severely," one account of the battle reads. From the battlefield, the general was brought across the river and up the Big Salmon River to a house in French Mills Three days later, he died and was buried, only to be later taken to Sackets Harbor where the regiment was stationed. In 2007 there is to be a new headstone at Mount Covington Cemetery to commercate his death (courtesy of Gary O'Dell - Odellcaptain@aol.com)

m 16 Feb 1796 at Rutherford Co NC Susannah P Covington,10783. The John V. Covington, Jr. who married the daughter of Thomas (10778), Susanna in 1796 may well have been John's son and first cousin of the bride. They lived after marriage at Carnesville GA. Will of 1837 is located in the courthouse at Liberty MS. John moved to Georgia sometime after 1796. It is believed several Covington families moved to Georgia during the same period. He served in the War of 1812, during the year of 1814. His service commenced on November 21, 1814, and was to expire on May 20, 1815. He was in Company C, Riflemen, 4th Regiment of the Georgia Militia. Company Commander was Captain Adam G. Saffold. Battalion Commander was Lt. Col. Jones. The company pay roll shows his service actually expired on May 6, 1815, at Ft. Hawkins. His time of service was charged as 5 months, 23 days. He was paid travel pay from his home to the rendevous with his company, and back. Distance from his home to the rendevous was 60 miles, therefore the round trip distance was 120 miles. He was allowed 8 days for the round trip. He was paid $46.65 travel pay. A company muster roll shows he was present at Camp Hope on December 10, 1814. Another company muster roll shows he was present but sick at Camp 3 Mile Creek on March 1, 1815. After the war, John moved his family to Amite County, Mississippi.

Smith, Mother Ref: 11334. d 20 Aug 1864 at North Carolina NC aged 62. Mar: about 1828 at North Carolina NC to Thomas, Cecelia Stuart

5759. Another source suggests that he may have had a first wife named Francis Dockery Thomas. (D E Covington 1991). According to 1840-1860

census they lived in the Black Jack Distroict of Richmond Co. He was a farmer having Real Estate of 3,000 and a personal estate of 10,000 (WD

Bostick Aug 2001)

The family of William and Celia Covington are listed in the 1850 census as living in the Black Jack District of Richmond Co., NC (#943):

William Covington, 48m (b abt 1802), farmer, NC

Celia Covington, 32f (b. abt 1818), NC (transcriber’s error?)

Edwin Covington, 20m (b. abt 1830), farmer, NC

Presley Covington, 19m (b. abt 1831), farmer, NC

Mary Covington, 17f (b. abt 1833), NC

John Covington, 10m (b. abt 1840), NC

Thomas Covington, 6m (b. abt 1844), NC

William Covington, 1m (b. abt 1849), NC

The family of William and Celia Covington are listed in the 1860 census as living in the Black Jack District of Richmond Co., NC. (p. 734, line 37;

Household #502):

Covington, William L.; age 58 (b abt 1802); farmer; real estate 3,000; personal estate 10,000.

Covington, Celia; age 32 (b abt 1828); domestic.

Covington, Thos. B., age 15 (b. abt 1845).

Covington, William, age 11 (b abt 1849).

BOSTICK, Mary A., age 27 (b. abt 1833); domestic.

BOSTICK, Wm, age 5 (b. abt 1855).

In this pre-war era, they are relatively prosperous; a net worth of $13,000 in 1860 would be equivalent to abt $280,000 in the year 2001.

In 1857, W.L. Covington prepared his will (Richmond Co., NC, Will Book Vol. 4, p. 186), leaving extensive property to his wife for her use during her

lifetime. However, after William’s death in 1864, Sherman and the U.S. Army passed through the county on the “March to the Sea.” Much of the

property that was to go to William’s widow was destroyed by U.S. troops; the Confederate bonds and certificates were now worthless; the Negroes

were emancipated. After the war, the children of William L. Covington pooled their own inheritance to provide Celia the means to maintain a small

farm.

From M. Bridges (2001), Estate Records 1772-1933 Richmond County, North Carolina, Book I, p. 287: “An agreement entered into by and between

the heirs of W. L. Covington, dec’d for the benefit of our Mother. The consideration being that much of the property that was given to her by the will

of our father was destroyed by the Army in 1865. Now each of us agrees among ourselves to give to our mother, without sale or division, each and al

of our parts or interest in the household and kitchen furniture and such farming tools as we may judge necessary for her to carry on a small farm all

of which the will was ordered to be sold and equity divided among his children, all for her use and benefit so long as she may live.

Then all that remains must be sold and divided among the heirs. We also instruct the executors to the will of our father to act in accordance with the

agreement set forth in this article and do hereby relieve them of the sale or division of the property herein mentioned. In witness whereof we do

hereunto set our hands and seals this Jul 1870. (signed) E. P. Covington, T. B. Covington, M. C. Ellerbe and wife N. W. Ellerbe, M. A. Bostick, W. L.

THE ROBERT DOCKERY FAMILY STORY

Robert Dockery Covington was a college graduate, who helped on his father's plantation raising cotton and tobacco. His wife, Elizabeth Ann Thomas

was b April 21, 1820 in Marlboro District of South Carolina and on February 2, 1839 she married Robert Dockery Covington. John's parents

moved shortly after their wedding to Marlboro County, South Carolina. The next move came with Robert's parents, Thomas B. Covington, known as

"Big Tommie" and Jane Thomas. They settled in Summerville, Noxbee, Mississippi. They Established large plantations and they prospered,

because of Jane Thomas's relatives, having settled there since 1834, also the rich soil and plenty of slave labor helped a great deal. This was the

place where John Thomas Covington was b on August 4, 1840.

It was three years later, on January 1, 1843 that John's sister Emily June Covington was born. about this time, Daniel Thomas had brought home a

Book of Mormon. And after Robert Dockery Covington and his wife had heard Elder Clapp preach for two weeks, they were baptized into the Church

of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on February 3, 1843, in Noxbee County, Mississippi by Benjamin Clapp. Although most of Elizabeth's family

joined the church, Robert's family thought that he had lost all his reason. Little did Robert's parents, Thomas B. Covington and Jane Thomas,

realize that the son whom they had greeted with open arms at his birth, August 2, 1815 in Rockingham, Richmond, North Carolina, would one day

be disinherited by themselves. In fact, in Covington books written by non L.D.S. authors, Robert's name isn't listed among the children. Although, his

older brother James, who also joined the L.D.S. church and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. Nancy later returned to Mississippi in a state of

disillusionment.

Soon after Robert had joined the Church, he longed to join the Saints in Nauvoo. At this time he was overseer on two plantations. He set his slaves

free, which was protested by the slaves because of their deep love for Robert. Now preparations to leave got underway. On February 1, 1845 Sarah

Ann Covington was born. John had a new baby sister. John Thomas Covington was not yet 5 years old, and stories have been told that he "baptized"

many of his negro playmates in the muddy ponds before his family left for Nauvoo.

Robert Dockery Covington and Elizabeth Ann Thomas Covington received their endowments January 20, 1846 in the Nauvoo temple. Soon John

Thomas Covington lost his sister Catharine Covington, born 1846 and died in 1846 in Nauvoo, Illinois. He also was to lose his toddler sister Sarah,

b 1845 in Mississippi and died October 16, 1846 in Winter Quarters. John had gone from a life of wealth and plenty, to a life of great needs and

want, but these circumstances and happenings were not all that happened to this family.

In 1847, Robert, Elizabeth along with children John and Emily started for Utah in the Edward Hunter Company under the direction of Captain

Daniel Thomas. Elizabeth was expecting again and the ordeals the Saints had to suffer had made inroads on her health. It must have been a trying

journey for it seemed that the forces of the elements were pitted against them. The dust storms, the hail storms, lack of good water, and wood to

burn, with Indians camped on the opposite bank of the Platt River stampeding cattle crossings often to beg or trade for food that was such a scarce

commodity. Sometimes they swarmed in their camp like bees and would often help themselves to whatever was handy. Housewives would often be

missing their camping and cooking equipment.

One day while the men were fixing broken wagons they stopped near some currant bushes. Robert D. sent his children John and Emily with buckets

to gather what they could. They worked hard picking clean the currant bushes as they went. Just as they finished filling their buckets full of currants,

an Indian stepped from behind a bush and gave a war hoop. The children dropped their buckets and fled to the camp. When they neared the camp

they looked back and saw the Indian with their currants laughing at his huge joke.
 

On the morning of August 1, 1847 it was quiet, the heat was terrific. The party of immigrants had called a halt. Saints had not found wood to burn

for 11 days and the water was unfit to drink. Some of the animals had died by licking alkali off the ground. They also had wagons to fix. Mrs.

Sessions, the midwife was called to take care of Elizabeth Covington. Mrs. Sessions had a buggy so she drove back to the second hundred a distance

of some 5 miles. She, Mrs. Sessions brought Sister Covington back to her camp and put her to bed with a new son, Robert Laborious Covington.

This all took place in Scotts Bluff, Nebraska.

The Saints were halted here for the day and A.O. Smoot called a meeting and pleaded with the Saints to be more united and to trust in the Lord,

and to consider these experiences like a school, readying them for leadership positions. The saints had many hardships to bear during their track

westward, some times traveling many miles only finding sparse food for their cattle and other animals, Indians often came into camp and would

spread blankets on the ground wanting to trade or be fed, the Saints were counseled not to trade with them, but to feed them. Their was much

sickness and death among the pioneers. Eliza R. Snow was a great comfort to the sorrowing, on one occasion she remarked, "Death makes

occasional inroads among us. Nursing the sick, tending wagons was laborious service. The patient faithfulness with which it was born. To consign

loved ones to these desolate graves was enough to try the hearts of the strongest."

On August 5, they camped 8 to 9 miles from Fort Laramie where the food was plentiful and the water was good, they stayed here for 5 days to fix

wagons in need of repair, wash clothes, mend them and to bake. While camping here some bears near the camp disturbed their sleep. Two Indian

women who were gathering berries nearby saw these bears and they left gatherings for the bears, some of the pioneers in the company witnessed

this.

Traveling became very hard and was going very slow due to the rough terrain, there were hills to climb and several wagons broke. In September, the

pioneers crossed miles of sand and the winds blew very hard, here they saw fearful storms and sand, rain, and snow. They encountered pioneers

going back East to help the remaining Saints travel West. These travelers camped all night with the party and gave them words of encouragement

and of telling them about their new homes in the West. Their words were welcomed and there was a feast prepared by the women of the company

that night.

The last miles into the valley were hard ones because of the cold and rugged mountains they had to travel. But arrive they did on September 24,

1847. The Robert Dockery Covington family arrived in the valley, the trip had taken it's toll though for Robert's wife was frail, the hardships had all

but taken her strength. She hoped to get stronger, but the cold winter winds along with a severe cold only added to her troubles, and on December

7, 1847 she left her devoted family to carry on her good name.

Marian Adair, a good person helped the family out by helping with the new baby, since milk was very scarce she fed the baby buttermilk and

clabber.

Robert Dockery Covington next married a widow, Malinda Allison Kelly, so John, Emily, and baby Robert had a new stepmother and stepsister Kate.

This family settled in the Big Cottonwood Ward in Salt Lake City. While they were in Big Cottonwood, Robert was able to teach school and was

called "Professor Covington". This is also the area that they lived in when the locust infested Salt Lake Valley. Their crops were spared and they

shared their food with their starving neighbors.

In the fall of 1849, John Thomas Covington was only 9 years old when his father accepted a call to be a missionary in the Southern States. And on

December 28, 1849, a new daughter was b to Malinda and Robert, she was named Mary Ellen Covington.

May Ellen Covington didn't meet her father till she was almost 7 years old and John was almost 16. That was in the spring of 1856, when Robert

returned from the Southern States mission.

Robert Dockery Covington took a plural wife on December 28, 1856. Her name was Nancy Roberts. To this union was b three children Pheobe,

Thomas, Malinda, when Nancy Roberts died, Robert's second wife Malinda mothered her children as well as those of Robert's first wife Elizabeth.

This Covington family accepted a calling to settle Dixie and moved to Washington, Washington County Utah. John Thomas Covington found

himself in new surroundings once again, and on August 1, 1857, the son of the Bishop of Washington Ward. John's next few years were filled with

hard work, planting, harvesting of grains, corn, tobacco, and cotton. In 1858, Grape cuttings from California were planted as well as chinese sugar
 

cane. And in 1861 peach stones were planted and the peach trees began to grow.

Robert Dockery Covington's family prospered and built a spacious home, he, Robert D. had cut large stones from a nearby mountain and built a

grand home for those day pioneers. The walls were three feet thick and built Colonial style. There were two fireplaces on each of the three floors.

The upper floor was used for years as a dance floor for the young people, many people spoke of their generous and good hospitality.

largely passed in travel for the benefit of his health, but during this period he gained considerable experience in planting by acting in the capacity

About the year 1850 he married Miss Dillard and located in Stewart county, Ga., where for a few years he resided on rented land and then

purchased a plantation. Subsequently he disposed of this land and moved to Chattahoochee county, purchased another tract of land and farmed

until 1858, when he came to Alabama and settled in Dale county, near the present home of his son, Perry F. Here he bought his third plantation,

which he improved with a good dwelling and outbuildings, and placed under a high state of cultivation.

He took an active part in the upbuilding of the county, and was especially energetic in advancing church and school interests. A democrat in politics,

he freely gave his services to the Confederacy during the late war, and after its close led a peaceful life until April, 1888, when he passed from

Census of Wayne Co MS as living with one female - newly wed. He enlisted in the Civil War in 1861 and was died in service later the same year

from diseaese.

He took a twelve month enlistment May 14, 1861, in Corinth, Mississippi, in a unit called The Wayne Rifles. The company was commanded by

Captain W.J. Eckford. Thomas' rank was Private.

The Wayne Rifles were called into state service and mustered into the Confederate Army as C Company, 13th Mississippi Infantry Regiment, on

June 6, 1861, at Union City, Tennessee. There they remained attached to the army under General Polk until ordered to Lynchburg, whither the

regiment started Jul 14. Immediately upon reaching Lynchburg they were ordered to Manassass, and reached the railroad junction during the night

of Jul 20 and the morning of Jul 21, the day of the famous battle of the Civil War, called "1st Battle of Bull Run" or "Manassass".

As soon as possible they were advanced to the field, with much marching and countermarching in the intense heat and stifling dust. The orders were

to report to General Longstreet, but for convenience they were attached to Jubal A. Early's brigade, which was stationed in the rear of Beauregard's

line on Bull Run, near McLean's ford. The famous battle of the 21st was brought on by the Federals attacking on the Confederate flank, behind the

run. The battle raged from 10 o'clock, and General Early did not get orders to participate in it until two, when he immediately marched to the scene

of the conflict.

"This brigade", Beauregard reported, "was marched by the Holtham house across the fields to the left,... and under a severe fire into a position in

line of battle near Chinn's house, outflanking the enemy's right. At this time the enemy had formed a line of truly formidable proportions. The woods

and fields were filled with their masses of infantry and calvary. It was a magnificent spectacle as they threw forward their cloud of skirmishers on the

slopes of the ridge for another attack. But as Early formed his line, Elzey's brigade and other regiments advanced, almost simultaneously, with great

spirit from their various positions. At the same time, too, Early resolutely assailed their right flank and rear." It was then the rout began. The 13th

Mississippi suffered no dead, and 6 were wounded. The company letter changed to Company B about April 26, 1862, due to a re-organization

where all companies in the state service were mustered into one regiment, the 18th Mississippi.

On Jul 4, 1861, Thomas was listed as "age 32, 5 feet 9 inches tall, fair complexion, red hair, blue eyes". (Most of the descendants of Thomas

Lorenzo Dow Covington had dark eyes, dark hair, and high cheekbones, as if they possibly had some indian blood. Could Clarissa have been part

Page 167 Journal Recommenced- Sept 25th 1843. "Again my birth has dawned upon me and finds me just a score of years old. Altho' I feel neither

philosophical, poetical or pensive I shall commence journalizing. My intellectural habits for the last few months have entirely unfitted me for literary

exercises. I shall endeavor to train my mind to former habits by daily exertions in this way.–

I recited my first lesson in Abbots Abercrombie 2 to day to the Governor I hope I shall be able to study it. As one of a literary Committee I had a

conference with the Gov. for the furtherance [of] a scheme which3 I had the honor to propose. How it will succeed I know not. I hope it will prove an

ornament to the university and an honor to the Students.— Have had some very pensive reflections of on the dissolution of a friendship which I hope

to cherish. The act tho' a sad one was a duty which I owed to my honor. I feel erect and independent."

into the Expediency and5 practicability of establishing a Literary Magazine in this place, to be conducted by the class—and to submit a plan for the

same—having held a conference with Gov Swain and Ths Loring Esqr of Raleigh and having maturely and deliberately considered the subject beg

leave to submit the following report.–

It is the opinion of this committee that a periodical, to be called the North Carolina University Magazine, should be issued monthly—a number on,

or near the first day of each month—that the immediate supervision of the periodical should be confided to an Editorial Corps of six: (three from

each Society) which corps shall be elected at the end of each Junior year, by the class of which, they may be members, and shall, at the beginning

of the following session, assume the duties and responsibilities, and be vested with all the authority which usually belongs to an Editorial

department.

The Committee would further suggest, that this meeting proceed forthwith to the election of an Editorial Corps, who shall be empowered to make all

further arrangements, with regard to the publication of the Periodical.

arm in combat for which he received a pension and his wife a widow's benefit. Moved to California from Calhoun Co MS.

Info that follows was submitted by Tom Powers a great great grandson of William Dockery.

The following was writen by William Dockery Covington sometime after he was 80 yars old. This note was found with this granddaughter Cleo's

things after she died in the year 2000.: "I was home on furlough in January 1865 and met my future wife at a party. Miss Mary Louisa Nunn. She

was b in Ruthsboro Mississippi October 30, 1847. She consented to be my wife in 1866. She was a kind, loving wife and an affectionate mother.

An angel on earth who always saw the bright side of life. She died in Redlands California August 1904 and was buried in Redlands cemetary."

I found the following on the internet. A letter written in 1903 by W.D. Covington to a friend of his who still lived in Mississippi.

The Calhoun Monitor, November 5, 1903

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We present below in its entirety a letter from Billie D. Covington, of Redlands, California. He was b and raised in Calhoun. When quite young he

shouldered a musket and followed the company commanded by Capt. E. R. Enochs, through the civil war. He was never known to shirk duty and

was very popular with his comrades. Soon after the war he emigrated with his fathers family to Redlands, where he has resided ever since. Knowing

that his old soldier friends, and many who were not with him in the war will enjoy reading this letter we give it space. -

Redlands, Cal., Oct. 24, '03

"Dear old Comrade, and old boys of Co. "F" where'er you roam:

Your boyish faces are fresh in memories dreams. We are brothers and I love you still. Boys, our ranks grow rapidly thinner as the years roll by and

our battles of life are almost won, and may the Master say "Well done."

Do you all read the "Confederate Veteran?" In it I sometimes find some of our old war songs that we used to sing together. Our company could sing

as well as fight, you know. Now if I try some of those old songs my voice chokes and my eyes grow dim with tears in sad sweet memories of those

who marched with me.

Say, boys, let the home stretch be as pure, as true and patriotic as in life's morning when we marched to music of fife and drum. Oh, time how fleet.

But yesterday I saw the camp fires surrounded by the boyish faces, but my white locks and the rugged path behind me say it has been years.

Mr. James Cook arrived here on the 2nd, Inst., from his visit to Calhoun, and I wish to say to the friends who sent me greetings through him, God

bless them. I appreciate them all.

Mr. Cook visited my old home, west of Pittsboro, and hunting grounds of the long ago. At my request, he went to old Frank's grave; Co. "F" will

remember the old darky that followed me through the war. He was a negro 'tis true but he was possessed of a true and noble nature and I reverence

his memory. But enough of this.

The Monitor is a regular visitor and I enjoy the many items. Although I have been away from Calhoun nearly thirty-seven years, it has a warm place

in my heart. You have a good county and many good people, from my point of view, though your people should grow a greater variety of products

That is a good stock country, as most of the grasses will grow well there. Alfalfa would grow there almost through the entire winter; could be pastured

and then cut for hay in the spring.
 
 
 

I have often thought of the many fine streams there that could so easily be utilized for irrigating pastures and crops. Irrigation is all the go out here

and lands that can be irrigated are out of reach in prices. Some other time I will write more on this subject, also, of our orange crop and of our little

city, Redlands. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

P. H. Covington and family are well. B. P. Davis another old "Free Stater" here is o.k. He is an old bachelor still, but says he is going to Calhoun

next year to look him up a better half.

Now, I should like to make some inquiries concerning our old boys but fear my letter is already too long. Will some of them write me? There is

Reuben Countiss, Ben Landreth, "Old Bragg" {Jack Maxey,} Mose White, John and Irvin Bryant, Jerry Shepherd, Cap Bagwell, Joe Burns, "Old Doc"

{Henry McGuire,} John McGarity, Jim Stewart, John Hastings and Bill Barton. I can't name them all here, but the whole company dwells in my

memory and I would like to know of them all.

Well, my crippled hand and the length of this letter admonish me to stop. Meet me beyond the river to "Rest in the Shade."

W. D. Covington, 9th Grand St. Redlands, Cal.

The following is information on the 4th Mississippi Regiment that WD serven in: "Confederate Mississippi Troops 4th Regiment, Mississippi Infantry"

Thomas, Margaret, Mother Ref: 11555. d 22 Oct 1923 at Beauvoir MS aged 78. b circa 1845 Black Jack District, Richmond County, North

Carolina; He is found in the census of Sep 20, 1850 on page #296-A; line 28, Black Jack District, Richmond County, North Carolina. He is the son of

John "Big John" Coulter Covington (cir. 1808 – bef. 1870) and Margaret Thomas (Oct 9, 1812 – 1856)

He is found in the census of Jul 24, 1860 on page #361-A; line 39, Rockingham District, Rockingham Post Office, Richmond County, North Carolina.

He began military service in May, 1862 mustered into "I" Company of the 2nd North Carolina Artillery Regiment (36th State Troops), North Carolina.

This unit was stationed at Fort Fisher in New Hanover County, North Carolina. After the fall of Fort Fisher, the unit was used as an infantry regiment.

It apparently then took the designation of the "I" Company, 36th North Carolina Infantry Regiment. They fought as infantry in the Battle of

Bentonville with the Army of Tennessee. The unit surrendered along with the Army of Tennessee in April of 1865.

He is found in the census of Sep 4, 1870 on page #556-B; line 37, Mineral Springs Township, Rockingham Post Office, Richmond County, North

Carolina. The census shows he is a farmer; Benjamin is found living next to his step-grandmother, Hannah Covington, the second wife of his

grandfather, Benjamin Coulter Covington. He appears to be farming her land and he has a number of black farm hands enumerated with him. I

suspect these farm hands are the ex-slaves that were left to Hannah in her husband Benjamin's Will of Jul 3, 1850 and probated in the Jul 1855

session of the Court.

He between 1871 and 1872 relocated to, Lauderdale County, Mississippi. Benjamin, his brothers, Robert Thomas Covington, and Rev. David A.

Covington and sisters Susan B. Covington and Sarah J. Covington Mason and her husband Presley Mason all left Richmond County shortly after the

1870 census was taken and moved to Lauderdale County, Mississippi. There are all found there in the 1880 census. His sister Frances M. Covington

left Richmond County sometime after the 1880 census where she is found living with Hannah

Covington, her step-grandmother, and joined her siblings in Lauderdale County, Mississippi.

He is found in the census of Jun, 1880 on page # 173-C, Tunnel Hill, Lauderdale County, Mississippi. The census shows he is a farmer.

He is found in the census of Apr 21, 1910 on page # 741-A; line 19, on Beach Boulevard, Mississippi City (now Biloxi), Harrison County, Mississippi.

Benjamin is found living at Beauvoir, the last home of Confederacy President, Jefferson Davis. After Jefferson Davis' death the grounds were

converted to an Old Soldiers Home and Cemetery. During the latter years of his life Benjamin made money carving walking canes. He donated

$400.00 earned carving these canes to have a wall built around the Ussery/Covington Cemetery North of Cartledge Creek Church in Richmond

County, North Carolina. The wall is still there today and completely encircles the 200’ X 200’ cemetery. I have pictures of this wall in my files.

He is found in the census of Jan 3, 1920 on page # 128-A; line 26, 2244 Beach Boulevard, Mississippi City (now Biloxi), Harrison County, Mississippi.

He is still living at Beauvoir.

He died on Oct 22, 1923 at Beauvoir; Jeff Davis Veterans Home, 2244 Beach Boulevard, Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi. He was buried after

Oct 22, 1923 in the Cemetery at Beauvoir Veterans Home and Cemetery, 2244 Beach Boulevard, Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi. Beauvoir was

the last home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. After Davis' death, Beauvoir evolved into the Jefferson Davis Soldiers Home, a retirement

home and hospital facility for disabled and/or indigent Confederate veterans and their dependents. One requirement for admission was that the

veteran must have been a resident of

Mississippi for at least one year. Many of these veterans and their dependents are buried at Beauvoir Confederate Cemetery, which is located at the

extreme northwest corner of the estate. The cemetery contains a total of 771 graves, most of them marked. Records of Beauvoir show Benjamin's

date of death and confirm that he is buried in the cemetery on the grounds of Beauvoir. Cemetery at Beauvoir, 2244

Beach Boulevard, Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi.

Probably the most profilic Covington in terms of fatherhood. He sired 31 Covingtons with his 3 wives.

When John Thomas Covington was 22, he made a trip north for supplies and as he neared Washington he was met by his father who during the rest

of the trip brought him up to date on the town news. Where upon he, John Thomas asked it there were any new girls in town, his father answered

there were some new girls, but the prettiest was a little Swedish girl, and his father concluded, "If you don't marry her I trust I will."

It wasn't long after that and after a brief courtship he married the sixteen year old Swedish girl, Johanna Ludblad. They began a happy life together.

From Washington the young couple moved to Cash County. They returned to Washington but moved again this time to Beaver to be near

Johanna's mother.

John was a good musician after composing his own music for his violin, in night the whistling of a bird kept ringing through his head until he could

not sleep. He arose and wrote the notes for his violin. This tune proved so popular he called it the "Ladies Favorite". He and his brother-in-law,

Winslow Farr, wrote a song called "The Big Cottonwood Waters." Where ever he lived John and his violin were called into service. It was an unusual

sight to see him playing his violin as he danced the square dances, with his partner clinging to his coat tail. Often he walked miles to play for a

dance, after the dance was over he walked home. He was full of fun and took great pleasure in teaching his children to play and sing. He had an

orchestra in his family. He with family and friend liked to gather about the organ and sing.

While living in Adamsville, John took as his plural wife Elizabeth Adams. She was a daughter of David Barclay Adams and Lydia Catherine Mann.

They were married in the Old Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Utah and at the same time his first wife Johanna was sealed to him. To the

marriage John Thomas and Elizabeth Adams were b 13 children our heritage is brought through Junius Gilbert Covington their 12th child.

The family wasn't satisfied in Adamsville but was undecided where to go. Elizabeth was anxious to move to Wayne County where her people had

gone. But Johanna said she thought it would be better to move where they have more relatives. So it was decided to go to Orderville, they left

Beaver April 15, 1877 and they joined the United Order. John and his wives were good workers. He worked in the gardens and fields but most of his

time was spent in herding sheep.

The Indians were bad at this time. He exercised great influence over them. He with other were often called on to make peace with the Indians. The

united order owned a great deal of the Buckskin Mountains. They had a big dairy there also used it for range for their sheep. The Indians resented

this and claimed the land for their own. They were very ugly and the white people were in constant danger from them.

Brother Covington was herding sheep on Buckskin Mt. when the dog, "Queen", as prized imported dog, which the order had traded a cow for, was

shot while on duty with the sheep. Reports reached John that "George" an Indian with a mean temper was making threats against him. One day,

while out with the sheep he crossed a deep wash, when he reached the opposite bank he came face to face with "George". John was unarmed but

putting on a bold front said, "I hear you were going to kill me, now is your chance." George impressed by his bravery would not shoot and later

proved to be a friend.

About the time the united order was broken up John married his third wife Lydia May Carling a daughter of Isic Van Wagoner Carling and Mariam

Hobson. She was b March 1, 1866. There were seven children b to this union.

When the united order was discontinued Brother Covington, Jonathan Heaton and George W. Adair rented the order sheep. During the summer the

sheep were herded in the mountain during the winter they were herded "out in the sand".

When Brother Covington drew out from his partnership, he bought a dairy ranch that had belonged to the order. The ranch was located at the mouth

of Dairy and Main Canyon's.

Two of John's families lived on the ranch in the summer milking cows, making cheese and butter. Late in the fall they moved into town for winter.

Brother Covington raised wonderful gardens in the ranch. His was a generous nature he would give sacks of vegetables to anyone who called. Often

he would start for Orderville with a load of vegetables for his families. But everyone he met he stopped to talk to them, but by the time he arrived
 

home the wagon would be almost empty. His home though humble was always open to everyone.

At the time of the raid on the polygamists he and his son-in-law, Thomas Chamberlin were arrested and sent to the penitentiary for having more

than one wife. He served six months in the "pen". With his violin for company. One morning he wasn't feeling very well and didn't get up at the

regular time. He was still in bed when the doors were unlocked for breakfast. When he tried to open his door it was locked again. The other prisoners

said, "Now you won't get out" John took his violin and played "The Methodists Prayer" he fairly made the violin talk. When the guard came along he

found he corridor crowded with prisoners listening to the music. The guard swore and said, "Covington, if you stop that violin I'll let you out." So, he

got his breakfast with the rest.

In 1902 John, Elizabeth, Lydia and families moved to Torrey, Wayne County, Utah. There he lived until 1908 when at age of 68 he died after

playing the violin most of the night. This violin was passed to his son, who's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have fingered and

played the heirloom. An heirloom with a legacy that was given us roots, strong roots that have shaped our lives and our children's lives. Without

these ancestors' vision and dedication we could not nor would we have done the things that have been meaningful in our lives. What greater wish

Biographical Sketh by Great Granddaughter Wilma Susan Harris Smith:

Emily Jane Covington, a New Year's child, was b January 1, 1843 in Summerville, Noxubee Country, Mississippi. She was the Great Great Great

Granddaughter of William Covington. William Covington and his younger brothers, John and Thomas Covington, came from England to Maryland

with Lord Baltimore in 1632. The brothers had received land grants in Maryland and Virginia from the King of England. William and Thomas

moved on and settled in North Carolina. Emily Jane's father, Robert Dockery Covington, was b August 20, 1815 in Rockingham, Richmond

country, North Carolina. He attended school in Rockingham where he obtained a college education. Emily Jane's mother, Elizabeth Thomas, was

b April 29, 1820 in Marlborough County, South Carolina.

Robert D. Covington and Elizabeth Ann Thomas married in about 1838 or 1839. Soon after their marriage they moved with Robert's father, Thomas

B. Covington, to Summerville, Noxubee County, Mississippi.

With the help of slave labor, the Covingtons established a large successful plantation in Summerville. Here three children were b to Robert and

Elizabeth Ann. John Thomas, August 7, 1840; Emily Jane, January 1, 1843; and Sarah Ann, February 2, 1845. Sarah Ann died the same year in

1845.

During this time period many of the Thomas family, relatives of Elizabeth Ann Thomas, had also moved to Summerville, Noxubee County,

Mississippi. Some of the Covington and Thomas families attended Gospel meetings which were presented by Mormon missionaries. Robert D.

Covington and Elizabeth Ann Covington were baptized February 3, 1843. Robert D. Covington's father, brothers and sisters disapproved of their new

religion. Robert D. Covington was eventually disinherited.

In 1845, Robert D. and Elizabeth Ann Covington left Mississippi and joined the Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois. After just two years in Nauvoo, the

Covington family joined the great Mormon Westward migration. Travelling by wagon train they headed toward the great Salt Lake Valley. They

travelled in Edward Hunter's Company under the leadership of Captain Daniel Thomas. Emily Jane was 4 years old. The wagon train endured rain,

hail storms, dust storms, lack of good water and wood to burn.

Indians often followed the group and sometimes approached their camp to beg or trade for food. On one occasion the travelers had stopped to

repair wagons near a growth of wild currant bushes. Emily Jane and her older brother John were given an empty lard bucket and sent to pick the ripe

currants. When their container was about full, several Indians reared up from hiding with a loud war whoop. The frightened children dropped the

bucket and ran for camp. When they looked back the Indians had retrieved the currants and were laughing at their big joke. The Indians, on several

occasions, stampeded their cattle. However, the Mormon leaders tried to maintain a friendly relationships as no one wanted a hostile confrontation

with the Indian followers.

Somewhere near what is now known as Scotts Bluff, Nebraska, Elizabeth Ann gave birth to her last child, Robert Laborious on August 1, 1847. After

traversing the last of the cold, slow and rough miles through the mountains, the Hunter Company arrived in Salt Lake Valley on September 27,

1847. Elizabeth was frail and weakened from the hardships of the journey. She fell ill of a severe respiratory infection and died December 7, 1847.

Robert moved his family to the cottonwood settlement located just south of Salt Lake City. He became the school teacher and was called Professor

Covington by the community. He accumulated land and livestock and married twice more. His second wife was Melinda Allison Kelly. His third wife

was Nancy Roberts. In April of 1857 Robert D. and a number of other men from the Southern States were called by President Brigham Young to

travel to Southern Utah to establish a new settlement on the Virgin River. At the age of 14, Emily Jane Covington was one of the 160 men, women

and children who were called to move 330 miles to Southern Utah to establish a new Mormon settlement.

The phrase "I was Called to Dixie" became the by-word of the hardy pioneers who journeyed and stayed to establish the communities of Washington

and St. George in Southern Utah. Like the true Dixie of the Southern United States, they planted cotton, sugar cane, tobacco and later alfalfa,

vineyards and peach trees.

Winslow Farr, Jr., resided with his father and mother, Winslow Farr, Sr. and Olive Hovey Farr on their farm in the cottonwood settlement. Winslow, Jr.

describes his journey to Cotton country:
 

September 27, 1858: I started with a horse team for the Cotton Country the distance of 330 miles.

After describing his 11 day journey, he continued in his diary:

October 8, 1858: I arrived at my place of destination down in cotton country on the 8th of October in good health. My animals stood the trip first

rate.

On the 17th of October 1858 at eleven o'clock a.m., I was married to Emily Jane Covington the daughter of Robert D. & Elizabeth Covington

Washington City Washington County Utah. I help to make molasses while was there from sugar cane (Diary of Winslow Farr, Jr. 1856-1899, Page 42).

At the time of their marriage Winslow Farr Jr., was 21 and Emily Jane Covington was 15. Ten days later the newlyweds began their journey back to

Winslow's parents home in the Cottonwood settlement.

October 27, 1858: I with my wife started for G.S. Lake the distance of 330 miles arrived there on the 10th of November in good health I am living

with my father the following season I farmed my fathers place for one third of the crop he helping what he as able and boarded (sic) us till harvest

wheat crops did not do very well this year. I raised for my share 105 bushels of wheat 30 bushels of corn 20 bushels of potatoes and I do not know as

this will ever be any (good?) to any one but to my mind I do write as these things present. (Diary of Winslow Farr, Jr. 1856-1899, Page 45).

On November 9th of 1859 Winslow and his wife started by team and wagon for Southern Utah to await the birth of their first child.

Washington County February 3, 1860 : "at 2 o'clock p.m. our first child was b Winslow Robert. (Diary of Winslow Farr, Jr. 1856-1899, Page 45).

Winslow Farr, Jr. helped his father-in-law, Robert D. Covington, quarry sandstone and build a stone wall. In addition, Winslow drove cattle to

mountain pastures, hauled seed cotton to the gin, helped bail cotton and plant trees. He also worked for others in exchange for cotton and molasses.

On April 24, 1860, their wagons loaded with 100 bales of cotton and 42 gallons of molasses, the young couple headed out for the return journey to

the Salt Lake Valley.

Winslow's brother, Lorin Farr, the Mayor of Ogden and the Church President for Weber County, recruited and called the young couple to help

establish a new Mormon settlement in Northern Utah. By January of 1861 Winslow and Emily Jane moved to a community known as Mendon, Cache

Valley, Utah. They lived in Mendon for a season and then sold the small farm and moved on to Paradise, Cache Valley, Utah.

Emily Jane's first home in Paradise was a single room "dugout" in the side of a hill. A fireplace, located at one end held an iron kettle for cooking in

addition to providing heat for the one large room. Their children, Emily Olive Farr, LaFayette Thomas Farr and Lorin Freeman Farr were b in this

"dugout" home. Winters were severe, often with four to five feet of snow. Emily Jane told her grandchildren of times when young people, would

sleigh ride right over the top of their dugout.

During the time when Emily Jane and Winslow lived in Paradise, Winslow Farr, Jr. was selected as Captain in the Minutemen Militia. The Militia,

organized into groups of men to work in the fields, and to provide protection from Indians who would often raid the settlement for cattle and horses.

As was the custom, the pioneers often took time out from their work for entertainment. The Mormon families, traveling by wagons or bobsleds, would

gather from miles around. They made beds for the younger children and would dance until the wee hours of the morning. Winslow, who had a

saying "I am not a musician, I just love to fiddle around" was always called upon to play his violin for these social occasions. After breakfast they

harnesse­d their teams and headed their wagons toward home.

In March of 1882, the U.S. Congress passed the Edmunds-Tucker Act which outlawed the practice of polygamy. By 1884, government agents were

gathering evidence and issuing warrants for the arrest of many of the Mormon polygamist­s.

In October of 1885, while Winslow was at work at the ZCMI Co-op in Ogden, the underground sent word that the U.S. Marshals were on their way to

place him under arrest. He made his escape by being nailed inside a wooden box which was taken away by team and wagon. Winslow was taken to
 

the home of Simon Halverson in the Marriott settlement. Winslow fled with his third wife, Matilda Halverson Farr, and their children to San Juan

County in Southern Utah. Later they moved to an area near Cortez, Colorado. After two years of self-imposed exile, Winslow returned to Utah in

November of 1887 to give himself up to the Federal authorities.

FROM WINSLOW FARR JR.'S DIARY:

November 1887 : "We arrived in Ogden all safe in November after having quite a pleasant trip. but some cold weather some 500 hundred miles of

travel Br J. T. Johnson and family accompanied us on our journey. Found the rest of my family all well at Ogden I did not come out in public but

kept quiet as I wanted to arrange my business to stand my trial in court as there was an inditment (sic) against me I then with my attorneys went up to

court and gave myself up to the marshalls they then wanted bonds Br Barnard White William H Wright were my Bondsman I was then released to go

where I pleased I then went to work for the co-op till my trial came on which was May 1888 I was then sentenced to 6 months imprisonment and

$300 fine and cost of Court by Judge Henderson for keeping my Covenants with my wifes (sic) for unlawful cohabitations I had the privlege (sic) to

obey the law and be released but I prefered (sic) Prison walls rather then to abandon my wifes (sic) that god had given me or to go back on my

children and religion In the evening myself and Br Lorenzo Waldron were taken by a deputy marshal to the Utah Territorial Penetentiary for the term

of 6 months" (Diary of Winslow Farr, Jr. 1856-1899, Page 72)".

Winslow stood trial in the First District Court on May 27, 1888, Docket No. 815. Emily Jane and Melvina were subpoenaed to testify. Emily Jane was

called as the States first witness. She claimed the privilege of exemption from testifying, as she was the legal wife; therefore, she was excused.

Winslow was convicted of unlawful cohabitation and was sentenced to six months in the Utah Territorial Penitentiary with a fine of $300.00.

When Winslow was released from prison, November 24, 1888, the Ogden Third Ward, where he was a bishop, gave him a grand reception and

welcome home party.

Winslow with his wives, Melvina and Matilda, and their children left Ogden in August of 1890. They joined other Mormon families on their journey

to establish farms in Mexico. The families arrived in September at Colonia Diaz, a Mormon settlement which had been established in 1885. The

Farr's and all of the new arrivals spent the winter living in tents.

January 1891: "We all moved up to Colonia Dublan and laid out a new town bought some land of the Mexicans and got ready to farm and put in a

small crop."

Colonia Dublan is located about 150 miles south of Deming New Mexico and 170 miles from El Paso, Texas. To make the trip to Dublan, from

Deming, and return by team and wagon required at least 8 days of hard tedious travel.

A railroad was not built until 1897 and then it was still 12 miles beyond Dublan. The railroad eventually extended through Dublan and became a

great benefit for travel and marketing the colony's farm products.

Winslow returned to Ogden in the fall of 1892 with his wife Matilda and her children. Melvina with her children remained in Colonia Dublan. Upon

arriving in Ogden Winslow rented a home for his wife Matilda and enrolled their children in school. Dividing his time between Emily Jane's farm in

West Weber and Matilda's home in Ogden, Winslow spent the following spring and summer in Utah. Emily Jane was a charter member of the West

Weber Relief Society which was created February 17, 1893. By 1895, the relief society had raised the funds and built a granary for the storage of

wheat for the Bishop's storehouse. The grain was used as seed crops for the farmers in time of crop failure and was also used for donations to the

needy in times of disaster.

On October 28, 1893 Winslow with his wife Matilda and their children, joined four other families in seven wagons, with 500 head of "loose stock",

and headed for the long journey to Dublan Mexico. Subsequent return trips to Odgen, to visit his family in West Weber, were easier and affordable,

when his brother Lorin Farr provided a railroad pass.

January 1, 1897 : "My wife Emily's birthday is today. She is fifty-four years old."

In April of 1897 Sariah Farr, wife of Emily and Winslow's son, Lorin Farr, became suddenly ill. The doctors diagnosed her condition as "brain fever".
 
 
 

April 12, 1897: "Raked all the brush from under the trees administered to my son's wife Sariah who is very sick and stayed a short time by her

bedside".

April 13,14,15,16 "waited on the sick did not have my clothes of(f) for 3 days and nights. My son Lorin sent for Doctor Rich He pronounced it brain

fever".

April 19, 1897 : "My daughter-in-law is about the same, not much change. We all gathered about the bedside and prayed for her. She seemed a

little better."

April 20, 1897 : "Quite stormy and windy. My daughter-in-law not so well, delirious and out of her mind. Sent for Dr. Rich and he brought another

man with him to consult. I sat up with her tonight."

April 21, 1897 : "Sariah no better. Fever not quite so high. I sat up with her. The day is stormy and cold."

April 22, 1897 : "My son's wife Sariah died at 5:00 a.m. with brain fever after an illness of two weeks. She leaves a husband and four small children.

She was b June 1, 1870 in West Weber, Utah. We went over to Ogden and got a coffin and material to dress her. We returned at 2:00 p.m." (Diary

Winslow Farr, Jr. 1897, Page 187).

When Sariah Farr died on April 22, 1897 at the age of 27, she left four small children, Charles Buck, age 8, Emily Evelyn, age 7, Lorin Winslow, age

3 and Nephi Horace, age 2.

Emily Jane's own children were now adults. Starting over with a new family, Emily Jane took her four grandchildren into her home. These

grandchildren lived with Emily Jane and their father Lorin until they were grown.

Emily Evelyn Farr Mower, age 90 in 1980, was asked in an interview to describe her grandmother, Emily Jane. She stated, "Oh she was gentle, kind,

a wonderful mother. She would sometimes scold us, but she never ever laid a hand on us. She would say to people, I never whip any of these

children. I'd hate to meet their mother, up there, and have her say, you spanked my children, you didn't take good care of my children."

In 1897 Winslow was called by the First Presidency of the Church to move permanently to Mexico.

December 20, 1897 : "received a letter from the first Presidency for me to Locate permanently in Mexico quite a Disappointment to some of the

family but the Lords will be done" (Diary of Winslow Farr, Jr. 1897, Page 206)".

Before he left for Mexico he deeded his interest in the homestead to Emily Jane. In 1899, Emily Jane divided the farm into parcels and deeded the

property to her four sons, Lafayette, Lorin, Barnard and Aldebert.

On January 10, 1899 Winslow married his fourth wife, Sarah Mitchell Graham in Colonia Dublan, Mexico. In December of 1902, Winslow, his wife

Melvina and their two youngest sons, Wilford and Ashael, traveled by train to visit the families in Ogden arriving on December 6, and spent the night

with his daughter Emily Halverson and family.

December 7, 1902 "Visited my Tilly and children Had dinner with them visited my brother Aaron and Lorins families staid all night at Emilys."

December 8, 1902 "Got a horse and buggy and took my wife Melvina and two little boys over to West Weber to the rest of the family found all well

and glad to see us wrote some letters to my folks in Mexico in the eve My children Laffy and family came and had supper with us and spent the

evening with us We had a very enjoyable time."

Melvina and her sons stayed often with Emily Jane and her family in West Weber during the time she was in Utah. Emily Jane lived on the farm in

West Weber, Matilda lived in her home in Ogden and Sarah lived in her home in Salt Lake City as well as Dublan, Mexico.

Sarah, known as Dr. Sarah Farr, was often called upon as a lay midwife. Sarah gave lectures about the human anatomy and using her own formula,
 

bottled and sold a product known as Dr. Farr's Canker medicine. Evelyn Farr Mower (Granddaughter of Emily Jane) reminisced in a 1980 interview,

"Grandfather gave grandma Emily some of aunt Sarah's medicine and it was really gooooood tooo!"

In the spring of 1903 Winslow Jr. records in his diaries, time spent with each of his four wives. Winlsow spent more time with Sarah in Salt Lake City.

After returning to Ogden, from an extended stay with Sarah, he records in his diary:

March 20, 1903 "Took horse and buggy and took my wife Melvina and two little boys to Ogden had dinner with my daughter Emily took my wife and

boys up to Hyrum and Gooddall Her cousin on her way to Ogden valley to visit her sister Marintha called and see my wife Tilly and talked with her

She said that she desired not live with me as wife but did not get a d(i)vorce I tried to reason with her but it was no use Bp (bishop) counselor P

Anderson talked with her but all to no purpose She had made up her mind to separate (sic) It seems hard to pull away after rasing (sic) a family

together of six children it was against my wishes (to) separate she said I could come and see the children whenever I wanted so we quit on speaking

terms I then returned to West Weber."

On April 9, 1903 Winslow attended a Farr family reunion at the Ogden 3rd Ward.

April 9, 1903 "Took train for Ogden met my son Barney and came over to west Weber to my home and got ready with my folks and went over to

Ogden and attended the Farr reunion that was held in 3rd ward meeting house and asemby (sic) hall. Arrived about 6 to late for the opening

program just in time for supper table were spread and supper was ready a large company sat down to supper I was called on to ask a blessing on the

food after supper went over to the hall where there was songs and music and speaches (sic) I played 3 tunes on the violin made a short speach (sic)

there was present 260 of the farr descendant and 15 of my own family were present we had a very enjoyable time long to be rememberd (sic)

dismissed about 12 pm and I returned to west Weber with my family".

On April 24, 1903 Winslow, Emily Jane, Barnard and Susan Farr, traveled by horse and buggy to Ogden to say goodbye to Melvina as she and her

two youngest sons boarded the train for the return trip to Mexico.

In November of 1903 Melvina was hospitalized in El Paso, Texas for an attack of appendici­tis. An operation came too late and she passed away on

November 6, 1903. She was buried in Colonia Dublan, Mexico.

November 7, 1903 : "Came to Ogden & heard the sad death of my wife Melvina she was at the Hospital at El Paso Texas where she underwent an

operation for apendisitis (sic) & died with blood poison she leaves a loving husband and 11 children to mourn her loss she was a noble woman she

was burried (sic) in Dublan Mexico Myself and son Joseph and wife and two little children took train for Mexico the folks at the farm came to see us

off all feeling very sad."

His wife Sarah, accompanied by Winslow's brother Lorin, joined them in Dublan in December 1903. Winslow remained in Mexico until Jul of 1906.

In June, a family gathering, including 11 of Melvina's children and 18 of their grandchildren, held a farewell supper for him in the old family home

before his final return trip to Utah, Saturday June 30, 1906.

Jul 2, 1906 : "Never sleep on the train. Sleeping berth is too short. Came from Sacramento to Ogden. Landed at West Weber at 9:00 p.m. in the

evening. Walked up to the home and was very tired. Found all well" (Diary of Winslow Farr, Jr. 1906, Page not numbered".

With the exception of occasional brief visits to the West Weber farm, Winslow lived most of the time between 1906 and 1913 with his fourth wife,

Sarah, in Salt Lake City. Winslow, Sarah and his brother Lorin spent many hours working in the Salt Lake Temple.

December 25, 1907 Wednesday : "Christmas. Eat dinner at my wife Sarah my wife Emily was with us had a roasted duck received a Christmas gift

and some letters from my children in Mexico."

December 26, 1907 Thursday : "My wife Emily went home to West Weber Sarah went to the train roads very muddy" (Diary of Winslow Farr, Jr. 1907,

Page not numbered).

Jul 21, 1908 : "My wife Emily and I went over to Ogden and joined the Old folks excursion to Lagoon had a nice time a splendid dinner and supper

I drew a suit of clothes as father of 31 children." (Diary of Winslow Farr, Jr. 1908, Page not numbered).
 

On February 2, 1913, Winslow suffered a stroke. Winslow and Emily Jane's four sons were called to move him from Salt Lake City to Emily Jane's

home in West Weber (now known as Taylor, Utah). Their sons took turns attending and staying up through the night with their father. Winslow died

February 18, 1913. He was buried in the Ogden cemetery in Weber County, Utah. After his death Emily Jane and her son Lorin, a widower,

continued to live in the old family home. Her son Aldebert, whom everyone called Uncle Dell, moved to Idaho. Her daughter, Olive Emily Farr, had

married Samuel Halverson and they made their home in Ogden, Utah. Barnard and Susan Alvord Farr built a home north of the old adobe home on

the portion of the homestead which Emily Jane had deeded to "Barney" in 1899. Her son Lafayette and his wife, Nancy Hipwell Farr, built their

home on the west section of the old homestead.

Jason Farr, great great grandson of Emily Jane and Winslow, currently farms his great grandfathers' (Lafayette Farr) portion of the original

homestead. Emily Jane died March 4, 1921 at the home of Barnard and Susan Farr. She was buried beside Winslow in the Ogden City cemetery,

Weber County, Utah.

Emily Jane gave birth to 14 children, including one set of twins. Only five of the children survived to adulthood. All of the infant children are buried

with their parents, Winslow and Emily Jane, in the Ogden City cemetery. The only graves, in the Winlsow Farr family plot, which are identified with

tombstones are Winslow, Emily Jane, their oldest infant son Winslow Robert and Matilda (third wife).

Emily Jane's grandchildren remember her as a vivid, colorful story teller. She would gather the children about her as she sat in her rocking chair,

telling them interesting stories of her early days in Dixie (Southern Utah). Tales of struggles she and Winslow had in trying to cultivate a dry farm in

Cache Valley, including the early days of marriage when they went on sleigh rides to church socials and dances, stories of Winslow playing his violin

for many occasions, wild bear and Indian stories were but a few of the exciting tales the children loved to hear. She often told accounts of the

Shoshone Indians who raided their settlement in Cache Valley for cattle and horses.

She also told stories of the Ute Indians who camped near her home in Ogden. Every summer while on their way to their traditional fishing grounds,

near Tremonton, Utah, a band of Utes would stop to camp near her homestead in West Weber. She would give them produce, from her garden, and

fruit from her orchard. Water and pasture were always available for their animals.

Dee Farr, a great grandson, has the pistol which belonged to Emily Jane. The gun is a 38 caliber Smith & Wesson five shot, with a rotary barrel. The

revolver is engraved with the date February 2, 1886. Emily Jane is purported to have always slept with her 38 under her pillow. Her Grandsons, Ken

and Glen Farr, describe Emily as a "crack shot", who could shoot a squirrel out of a tree at 20 paces. All of her grandchildren recall how she loved to

read. She would sit by the window, in her rocking chair, with a large stack of magazines and newspapers by her side. The grandchildren recall Emily

Jane always wore a clean white apron with two large pockets. They knew, hidden deep in one of those pockets, was her small box of snuff. They

remember her delicious homemade bread, her colorful Indian stories, her soft chuckling laughter and her stoic quiet dignity.

Emily Jane was a faithful pioneer woman. Her quiet nature, courage, endurance and dedication to family will always be remembered as endearing

qualities by her descendants.

EMILY JANE Covington FARR - REFLECTIONS OF HER GRANDCHILDREN

Mabel Farr Harris Decker

Grandma always had the midday meal promptly at 12:00 noon every day. She always rang a lunch bell and expected everyone to be washed and

ready to sit down to eat. This ritual was probably a carry over tradition from her father's southern plantation schedule.

When I was a young girl, mama gave me an empty lard bucket and sent me to Uncle Laf's (Lafayette) and Aunt Nanc's (Nancy) home to borrow some

wheat. Their home was just a little ways west and a little south of grandma's house which was just south of our house. Returning home with the

wheat, by way of Grandma's yard, I heard a buggy coming down the road. In order to get a view of who was coming I turned and started walking

backwards. The well outlet pipe caught me in the knee and the wheat went flying in all directions. I tumbled backward into the wash tub which

grandma had placed under the water outlet. I don't know who was more surprised, me or the ducks who had been swimming in the small pond next
 

to the metal tub. My backside was thoroughly drenched and as I scrambled to regain my feet, my shoes and stockings slowly filled with water. With

wings flapping and quacking with excitement, the ducks quickly devoured their unexpected gourmet feast. Embarrassed and soggy, I hurried home to

explain what had happened. Papa laughed heartily at my predicament. Mama was not amused and gave me a stern lecture about being so

careless.

My cousin Evelyn and her husband, Jeff Mower, lived across the street from grandma's and just down and across the way from our house. My sister

Lavon and I loved to hold and play with their infant daughter Ruth. Ruth was a happy baby who laughed often at our play antics. I was fourteen

when Ruth took sick and died unexpectedly. As the family gathered at the Mower home, everyone, including myself, seemed to be crying. I noticed

grandma seated in a chair, dry eyed and gazing out of a window. I approached grandma and asked, "Aren't you sad that little Ruth died?" She

replied, "Of course I am dear". I asked grandma, "why aren't you crying like everyone else?" She looked up at me and sighed, "Oh my dear, I cried

all of my tears years ago".

When Grandpa Winslow had his stroke he was living with Aunt Sarah in Salt Lake City. Papa and his brothers moved him back to grandma's home in

Taylor. With the assistance of some brethren from the ward they all took turns in sitting through the night to care for grandpa. Grandma slept at our

home. The first week he was in a coma. The last week he would partially wake for a few minutes at a time. As was the routine, mama and grandma

went by early in the morning to see how grandpa was doing. One morning as grandma walked in the door grandpa cried out, "Well hello Melvina,

when did you get here?" Grandma looked startled for a moment, but then replied, "Oh, just a little while ago". She sat beside grandpa and never

explained that she was really Emily Jane. In later years when we visited grandma's home, she and Uncle Lorin would be sitting in their chairs, each

by a different window and reading from a stack of old newspapers or magazines. A year before grandma died, I acquired a brand new Kodak

camera, and she posed for me standing outside her home in Taylor. I believe the year was about 1920. I am built just like grandma. We look just like

a plump sack of potatoes tied in the middle.

Kenneth Alvord Farr

When I was about three or four, Lavon and Mabel enjoyed dressing me up in little girls clothes to pretend that I was their big baby doll. I did enjoy

the attention, until the day they decided to dress me up and walk me over to grandma's house. They put a frilly white dress on me and twisted my

curls into ringlets and put a big bow in my hair. I can still hear the sound of grandma's chuckling laughter as we walked into her front door.

Embarrassed I started to bawl my head off. Grandma picked me up and sat me on her knees. I quieted right down as she preceded to tell me a story

about a big bear.

Some years later I noticed grandma's habit of reaching into her apron pocket, sniffing and wiping her nose. I asked mama, "Why does grandma

always do that?" Mama replied, "Grandma has a little tin box in her apron pocket and every now and then she dips a little snuff".

Papa enjoyed presenting and directing, and often playing a lead roll in community or church

plays. Papa had a collection of items which he often used as stage props. The most intriguing was a pistol which he informed me had belonged to

grandma. I can still recall the murmur of excitement in the audience when blanks fired on the stage echoed through the meeting hall.

"Grandma", papa said, "slept every night with the gun under her pillow. She suggested the weapon was for protection from Renegade Indians and

from Federal Marshals who might try to sneak into the house in the middle of the night. Papa insisted grandma was a crack shot, who could shoot a

squirrel out of a tree from twenty paces. The firing pin was missing when I gave the gun to my youngest son, Dee Farr. Dee had the gun completely

restored. I gave Winslow and Emily Jane's family bible to my son Keith Farr.

Evelyn Farr Mower

Every other day grandma always carried the same large round pan to the cellar to get just the right amount of flour to bake six loaves of bread. On

her baking days we always enjoyed the treat of warm bread with plum jam. One of my chores was to feed the chickens, ducks, geese and to gather

the eggs. When I entered the barn yard I had to watch out for the old gander who was mean and territorial. Many times, with neck extended and

wings flapping, he chased me as I scurried up the haystack to escape his stinging bite. Sometimes the old goose would circle and keep me a

prisoner atop my perch. Eventually, content with himself, he would wander away while I made my escape down the other side.

One of my other daily chores was walking to the lower pasture to bring the cows home for milking. I remember wearing four buckle galoshes, in the
 

spring and fall, as the pasture was always very wet and swampy. If it was storming, grandma often sent one of the boys to bring the cows home. We

all took turns bringing in kindling and firewood for the stove to heat the house. I never had to milk the cows, thank goodness, as this was always

considered the boys' chore. We kept some milk for our daily use, and we skimmed cream for weekly butter churning. Our extra milk was sold to the

dairy. This provided us with a small cash return.

I went to school only four days a week. I stayed home every Monday to help grandma do the washing and ironing. We heated the water, for wash

day on a coal stove which stood in a shed behind the house. The clothes were scrubbed and rinsed by hand on washboards which stood in large

galvanized tubs. The clothes were hung on outside lines to dry. Flat irons, heated on the kitchen stove, were used to iron the clothes. It took both of

us most the day to finish this chore.

Grandma taught me the basics of sewing on her old foot treadle sewing machine. We cut our patterns out of old newspapers. We cut open and

bleached our flour sacs, which we used to make dish towels, tablecloths, napkins, nightgowns, and underwear. When we could afford it we bought

cloth to make our dresses, skirts and blouses. One of my favorite pastimes was making doll clothes from scraps of material. By the time I was fourteen

I was making all of my own clothes.

When we were teenagers the church started mutual meetings for the youth. Whenever the weather permitted, grandma always encouraged us to

attend those meetings, which were held on Sunday evenings.

When I was a young girl grandpa and Aunt Melvina, who lived with her family in Mexico, came on the train with her two youngest sons to visit

grandma and her family. My brothers slept in the upstairs north bedroom, which was the larger room. I had the south upstairs bedroom to myself.

Aunt Melvina slept in my bed and I slept on a pallet bed on the floor. Grandpa stayed downstairs with grandma in the big front room.

In the summer and fall we kept very busy canning and drying fruits and vegetables. I would often climb onto of the buggy shed roof to spread sheets

out where we dried corn, apples, and apricots. I still remember the taste of one of my favorite desserts, which was a dish of white currants with a little

cream poured over the top.

My oldest brother Charles raised pigeons and we all looked forward to the days when grandma made a big pan of pigeon pie. She used the pigeon

breast, vegetables, and a biscuit dough on top, and Oh, it was so good.

When Uncle Barney and Aunt Susie were married, they lived in grandma's big front room while their home was being built next door. Grandma

shared the upstairs bedroom with me. Barney worked at the sugar factory to earn money to build his home on the twenty acres, which grandma had

deeded to him. The house was substantial and well built. The home is in good condition and it is still occupied today.

When grandma took sick, Barney and Susie took her into their home and cared for her until she died in 1921. When Ken (Barney and Susie's

youngest son) and LaRene were married they moved into Uncle Barney and Susie's old home. The year they married Ken was driving past our place

with a team and wagon. I spotted grandma's old rocking chair and side table atop the load. Jess hailed Ken who explained that LaRene had

cleaned a lot of old junk out of the house and he was on his way to the dump. With Ken's permission, Jess rescued grandma's chair and small folding

table. Jess sanded and painted this furniture which we placed in our living room. After Jess died, I gave grandma's furniture to my daughter, Fern

(Kaye). My father Lorin lived in grandma's old home until his death in 1946. Jess and I sold the property to Johnny Favero. As you can see, Johnny

built a lovely house in the exact place were grandma's home once stood.

Glen Farr

Grandma gathered my brothers, sisters and cousins around her rocking chair, and as we sat on the floor she told us Indian and bear stories. She told

us tales of the day she lived as a young woman in Southern Utah and of the time she and Winslow worked hard to establish a dry farm in Cache

Valley, Utah. She was a good story teller. She told us of the years they lived in their home in Ogden. Each summer a band of Indians would set up

their tents in the Farr family backyard. They came to trade their hand made goods for sugar, salt, and other staples. The children became especially

fond of an Indian woman they all called Aunt Mary. On one occasion grandma allowed Aunt Mary to carry my infant father, Lafayette Farr, on her

back when the Indian clan traveled on a one day trip to the Ogden hot springs.

When Grandma divided her farm in 1899 she deeded twenty acres of her homestead to my father Lafayette. She deeded twenty acres to each of her
 

four living sons. When Uncle Dell "Aldebert" moved to Idaho, Inez and I bought his twenty acres. I have a chair that grandpa Winslow purportedly

made while incarcerated in the Utah State Penitentiary for polygamy George Q. Cannon appears to be sitting in the chair shown in a photo of the

prisoners in the penitentiary. My father gave me a cane which belonged to grandpa. The style colors and design of this particular cane lead me to

believe it is was of Mexican origin and not one of the ten canes he made while he was in the Penitentiary.

Dee Farr, a great grandson, furnished a photograph of Emily Jane's gun. It is a 38 Smith & Wesson 5 shot revolver with a rotary barrel. The revolver

is engraved with the date February 2, 1886.

Marlboro Co SC to Kinney, Carrie 15160. A chapter of traditions obtained from Colonel John Covington two months before his death. The Colonel

was a remarkable man, b in "Hebron, the garden spot of the sacred soil of Marlboro," as he would characterize it, in the year 1801. He lived a

quiet, useful life among his own people, and when interrogated could recall the names and deeds of many no longer known on earth. Never stout

and strong physically, his cheerful, hopeful spirits, his joyous, fun-loving temperament, gave him a young heart in his old age.

Although looking, waiting for the call to join his loved ones gone before to the "shining shore," he was not averse to telling of the men and women

whom he knew in the days of his youth as the companions of his sports. He was familiar with many of the traditions of the old people which had been

handed down from parent to child—traditions which should be treasured by those now living, and in turn, handed down by them to future

generations (Traditions by Col John Covington 1897 - Marlborough County SC Archives)

Author: Brant & Fuller (1893) *Dale County AL, possesses no more prosperous and enterprising farmer than Perry F. Covington. He was reared a

farmer and early proved to be a valuable aid to his father, who gave him his liberty at the age of twenty. In 1875 he bought a portion of the fine

farm he at present owns near Skipperville, but which was then a wilderness of timber, comprising 240 acres.

He built a cabin, cleared this land, and cultivated it until 1880, when he put up a cotton-gin, and four years later erected a steam gin, grist mill and

saw mill, which are patronized from far and near. January 28, 1875, Mr. Covington was joined in the bonds of matrimony with Miss Catherine L.

Hunt, daughter of Gadsden Hunt. The last named is a native of Barbour county, Ala., and is now an owner of large farming realty, in that county.

Mrs. Covington was b in Barbour county in May, 1854, and is now the mother of eight children, b in the following order: Mattie F., Calvin C.

and Alpheus A. (twins), Louis L., Asa S., Perry C., Carrie A. and Bob. The homestead now comprises nearly 1,000 acres, and is a model southern

home.

Mr. and Mrs. Covington are consistent members of the Missionary Baptist church, while in politics, he is a democrat and a member of the farmers'

alliance. He is public spirited, an ardent advocate of education and is one of those who make a county prosperous."

(The above names of children differ from those recorded in the family history files of Gordon Brown @ Beckie Adkinson Family Tree, which is

considered to be more accurate)
