MILLSAPS BIBLE RECORD       Originally owned by William and Rebecca Webster Millsaps

It is now housed in Millsaps College - Jackson, Hinds Co Mississippi      Bible printed in 1818

The Millsaps Family first settled in Augusta County, Virginia.    The owner of this Bible was born in North Carolina. He came with his family through South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia to Mississippi about 1810. They settled first in the lower part of the state near what is now Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Then most of the family went to Copiah County. Some of them went to Simpson County and the oldest son settled in Jasper County, Mississippi.   The Millsaps of Ouachita Parish, Louisiana are descended from Uriah Millsaps, the oldest son. The family tradition is that Thomas, son of Uriah Millsaps, started to Texas, and got as far as Trenton, Louisiana, when smallpox broke out in the wagon train and the wagon train never left this area.

Blue Pin I was told that Daniel Webster Touchstone was a son of Dempsey and Sallie, but it is not written in the Bible records.    Daniel Webster Touchstone was born 17 November 1847, thirteen years after Sallie and Dempsey's last child, so I have my doubts. From my research, he appears to be the son of Green Touchstone and Serena Hall.

Blue Pin Questions have been raised about Sarah's being born in Tennessee. The information comes from the 1850 census, which may be in error, or perhaps the areas which they migrated was a part of Tennessee for that period of time.   Other than that, this family has been pretty well researched by both Millsaps and Touchstones.

William Webster4 Millsaps (William3,Thomas2,Thomas1) was born October 26, 1804 in South Carolina, and died July 06, 1873 in Hazlehurst, Copiah Co Mississippi. He may be buried in Old Pleasant Valley Cemetery, as are many of his family, but a tombstone is not there.

He married 1) Mary Wright 1828.  The daughter of Elijah Wright and Mary Kendall, she was born July 06, 1810, and died May 01, 1855, burial in Old Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Copiah Co Mississippi.
He married 2) Mary Ann Godbold July 23, 1857.  The daughter of James Godbold and Elizabeth Wright, she was born April 13, 1822 in Franklin Co Mississippi, and died November 02, 1875 in Brookhaven, Lincoln Co Mississippi, burial in Rosehill Cemetery in Brookhaven, Lincoln Co Mississippi    Elizabeth is the daughter of Elijah Wright and Mary Kendall, sister to Wm's first wife, Mary.  She had previously been married to Horace M. Gilmer.   Mary Ann was married twice, but had no children of her own.
 
Blue Pin The Bethesda Methodist Church early records reflect that Mary Wright was "removed by letter in 1830"

According to early records of the Bethesda Methodist Church: Miss Mary Ann Godbold - married W.W. Millsaps in 1848, moved by letter, married H.M. Gilmer in 1853, died 02 November 1875"
Marriage Index reflects:    Millsaps, Wm. W. Gilmer, M.A. Mrs.     1857 July 23     This correctly shows that Mary Ann Godbold had been married previously to Horace M. Gilmer.

Reuben Webster Millsaps:
His Father, Reuben Millsaps, grew to manhood in Copiah Co and by his own efforts he acquired a good education becoming the first school teacher in the county.   Here he married and continued to live until the time of his death in 1854.

When Reuben Webster was 17 years of age, the young man left his home and went to Natchez walking all the way, save when assisted along the by passing wagons, and there took passage on a steamboat, bound for Hanover College, Madison, Indiana, bent upon obtaining an education that would more adequately equip him for the battles of life. After remaining there for two years he was induced to go to Asbury University - now DePaul University - from which he was graduated in 1854. The years of College life were years of poverty and toil. Privation and menial, but honest, toil were the price paid for the education that he was determined to secure. Sometimes to those who possessed his confidence he would tell of those earlier days, and the heart of the listener would melt at the simple recital of the pathetic story of the heroic struggle with poverty and want.

Major Reuben Webster Millsaps was an American layman and philanthropist. Young Reuben left home at the age of 17, walked to Natchez, Mississippi, a distance of about 60 miles, took passage on a steamboat for Madison, Indiana to enter Hanover College. After 2 years at Hanover, he transferred to DePaul University where he graduated in 1854. He went back to Mississippi and taught school for 2 years saving every penny he made so he could go to Harvard Law School. After obtaining his law degree at Harvard, he practiced law in Pine Bluff, Arkansas from 1858 to the beginning of the Civil War.

He saw extensive service in the Confederate Army and came out at the close of the conflict with the rank of Major. After his discharge he returned to South Mississippi and entered the business of cotton buying and transporting. From that, he entered merchandising at Brookhaven Mississippi.

In 1880, he sold his business and went to St. Louis Missouri where he established a wholesale grocery and cotton commission business. In 1885 he returned to Hazlehurst, Mississippi and established the Merchants and Planters Bank; then moved to Jackson, Mississippi in 1887 and became president of the Capitol State Bank.

He and wife Mary had no children but reared a niece, Josephine 'Josie' Buie/ Millsaps, whom they adopted.

Major Millsaps was a stalwart Methodist and loyal churchman. Both he & his wife were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. His great work was in laying the foundation for Millsaps College with an initial gift of $50,000 in 1889. All told he gave more than ten times that amount to the College which bears his name. In addition, he gave the property on which the Mississippi Methodist Children's home was located and gave financial help to other educational and religious institutions.

Apparently Mary F. Younkin had previously been married to an individual with the surname of Younkin as she was described in the History of the Millsaps in the following manner - "In 1869 Major Millsaps was married to Mrs. Mary F. Younkin, the daughter of Horace Bean, a wealthy banker of New Orleans. Of this union no children were born but this lack was largely supplied by the presence of a gracious little niece, Josie, who became their adopted daughter."

John Jackson Millsaps

He was born near the site of Pleasant Valley Church where his parents worshipped. At the age of 14 he was converted in the revival in 1849. At the age of twenty he was admitted on trial into the Mississippi Methodist Conference at Vicksburg in November 1855 by Bishop Kavanaugh and appointed to a colored mission on Bee Lake in Yazoo and Holmes Counties.

Understanding his lack of theological training he later enrolled in the Theological Institute of Concord, New Hampshire in the fall of 1856 and remained there for two years. He then returned to Mississippi in 1858 and was re-admitted to the traveling ministry and appointed to pastor of Starkville and Pierce Chapel.   Later was appointed as pastor of Biloxi and Handsboro circuit. He did not remain in this charge all of 1861 but volunteered for service in the Confederate Army as a Private. He was attached to the Twenieth Mississippi regiment which was incorporated into General Floyd's Brigade then in Virginia. He was soon appointed chaplain and served his comrades faithfully and well during an arduous campaign in which his own health failed.

Children of Jackson Touchstone and Sarah are:

ii. James W. Touchstone, born c1859
iii. Jackson Touchstone, born c 1868
 
22. Charity5 Touchstone (Sarah4,William2,Thomas2,Thomas1) was born December 06, 1830 in Mississippi, and died January 24, 1898.

She married John Wesley Byrd, son of Susan Byrd. He was born May 02, 1830 in Mississippi, and died January 04, 1905. Both are buried in Poplar Springs Cemetery, Rankin Co Mississippi.
 
Blue Pin I believe John may be a sibling of Mary Byrd, wife of Nathaniel Green Barlow, but have no proof.  He may also be a sibling of Elizabeth Byrd, wife of Norvel Barlow.   A possiblity exist that he may even be a sibling of my great grandmother, Flora Byrd, wife of George Washington Barlow.
If anyone has information on this particular Byrd family, I would so appreciate hearing from you.  Susan

The Pleasant Valley Revival we note: Some accounts of this community was written by Honorable Reuben W. Millsaps of Hazlehurst several years before his death in 1931 and published in the county paper:
"Pleasant Valley Church was built in the forties, about forty-five. My father lived about two miles from the Church and wanting a direct road took me there and put me on the steps with a blowing horn and told me to blow until they came, and by the sound of the horn they blazed a way through the woods and then cut the road by the blazes. After building the Church they build a schoolhouse on the bank of the creek near the Church."

He was prepared for college by Mr. John Spencer, a highly educated Christian man who taught the school near the Pleasant Valley Church.
Blue Pin I believe Reuben and Eugenia raised his nephews and niece, children of his sister, Mary Millsaps Durr.

John was a Mason and I think a Methodist preacher writes Jewel Bragg of Mobile Alabama.

More research needs to be done to prove she is indeed the daughter of Rueben Millsaps and Lavinia Clowers, she is not in 1850 census, though a Rebecca E. is shown as only 2 years old, thus born c1848.

HORACE G. MILLSAPS

In the passing of Mr. Horace G. Millsaps whose death occurred at his home near Harriston- Richmond Hill Plantation- on the morning of April 30, 1905, there passed away a worthy representative of one of Mississippi’s first families, a Confederate soldier who had served his southland well and a citizen of Jefferson county who will be greatly missed.
Mr. Millsaps was born in Copiah county on March 14, 1842. He was the member of a large family whose mother and father were Mr. and Mrs. Green Millsaps, both of whom passed away some years ago and whose bodies lie buried in the cemetery at Fayette. From his family there yet survive three sisters and one brother as follows: Mrs. Wm. -Narcencia V. Millsaps?- Smith of Jackson, Miss., Mrs. F.P. - Rebecca Millsaps- Decell of Lake City, Miss., Mrs. Sallie Terry of Selma, Ala., and Mr. F.P. Millsaps of West Side, Miss. Mrsses Smith and Decell and Mr. F.P. Millsaps were with him at the time of his death. Mr. Millsaps was a nephew of the late Judge Jackson Millsaps, whose death occurred scarcely more than a year ago.
From the Millsaps family come man other useful and distinguished men who in all the callings of life proved themselves profitable to their state. Mr. Millsaps was twice married. His first wife was Miss Jane Lewis of Crystal Springs, Miss. After her death he was married to Miss Valencia Killingsworth of this county on Oct. 17th 1865. From this union there were born a number of children of whom the following survive: Messrs Horace Shaw, Albert Percy, and William Claude Millsaps of Harriston, Mr. Marion Millsaps of Nashville, Tenn., Mrs. J.S. Campbell and Miss Lucile Millsaps of Harriston. The first of Mr. Millsaps life was spent in Copiah county living near Bowerton, moving to Jefferson county in 1875. His home has been about three miles east of Harriston where he died. He was an unusually successful planter and raised a great many fine cattle.
Many people will miss this man as those miss one who has been a true friend. A man of strong attachments he drew to him a great many people, friends and relatives alike, and his death has brought genuine sorrow to many people.
Mr. Millsaps will not be more greatly missed anywhere than with the circles and councils of the Methodist church of his community for which he was for many years a faithful and devoted official. He saw large visions for the extension of the influence of his church and no plan was to great to secure his encouragement. Mizpah Church owes its existence as much to him as to any other one man.
In the death of Mr. Millsaps another Confederate Veteran passes to his rest and reward and to this extent the earthly ranks of that noble army is lessened. He was a member of Powell’s Cavalry Company which was in service at Port Hudson - between St. Francisville and Baton Rouge.
The funeral services were held at the city cemetery in Fayette on the morning of May 1st by Revs. H.H. Watkins and E. M. Stewart after which he was tenderly laid to rest. May his sleep be sweet and may God comfort those who loved him.

MRS. VALENCIA MILLSAPS DIED FRIDAY, AUGUST 22

Long and Fruitful Life Spent In Jefferson County
The death of Mrs. Valencia Killingsworth Millsaps, aged 84 years, occurred on Friday morning, August 22, at her home on Richmond Hill Plantation, following an illness of several weeks. When the end came she was surrounded by and administered to by her two daughters, Mrs. Kate M. Campbell and Mrs. Ernest Green, and her four sons, Messrs. H. S. -Horace Shaw-, A.P. -Albert Percy-, W.C. -William Claudius- and -Francis- Marion Millsaps.
Mrs. Millsaps was born in Jefferson County on April 25, 1846, the daughter of the late William Anderson Killingsworth and Nancy Shaw Killingsworth, and after the death of her parents was reared in the home of her grandparents the late Thomas -Thompson- B. and Mary Shaw. Her entire life, with the exception of ten years, was spent at Richmond Hill, a fine old plantation home, where she was always a gracious and friendly hostess and a highly esteemed neighbor.
Mrs. Millsaps was a life-long Member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, holding her membership at Mizpah, near Richmond Hill, and the funeral was conducted by her former pastor, Rev. E. D. Simpson, assisted by the present pastor, Rev. W. F. Baggett, of Lorman, and by Rev. J. B. Cain, of Fayette. The funeral service was held at Richmond Hill on Saturday morning and interment was in the family lot in Fayette Cemetery. Numerous friends of deceased and her family were assembled for the sad occasion and many lovely flowers covered the casket. A touching feature of the funeral service was the appearance and evident grief of a number of old colored people who have been retainers of the Millsaps and Killingsworth families for many years.
The sons and daughters and the several grandchildren and other who sorrow have the very sincere sympathy of their friends in this time of distress and irreparable bereavement.

I would suggest more research needs to be done on the children above.  When linking Henry Clifton Douglass to Jeremiah and Thelma, I noted that Henry's wife's name is the same as Jeremiah's sister, though the dates are different...However, the birthdate of Thelma on that page is the same as Jeremiah's sister, Mary, below.

Kathy kstormy44@hughes.net writes:
I noticed on your decendants of William Millsaps and Rebecca Webster...On line #38 You have Franklin Peets Millsaps Sr. (b1847) and Martha Valentine as only having one child, Franklin Peets Jr. I have that union being several children one of which is my great grandmother, Adeline C. Millsaps who married Charles B. Hubbard. Would you happen to have anymore info on that lineage? Rumor in the Family is that Adeline's name was scratched out of the Bible when she married Charles B.

Comprising Sketches of Parishes, Towns, Events, Institutions, and Persons, Arranged in Cyclopedic Form Vol 3, pp. 552-553 Edited by Alcée Fortier, Lit.D. Published in 1914, by Century Historical Association.

Millsaps, Uriah, for many years a prominent figure in the commercial life of Monroe, was born in Mississippi July 22, 1847. He came to Union parish, Louisiana, when a young boy and lived there until 18 years old, obtaining his early education there and attending the University of Mississippi, at Oxford, which, at the request of his father, he left to enter business. In 1868 he moved to Trenton, Louisiana, and began the general mercantile business with Mr. Flournoy, which he continued until 1885. In that year he removed to West Monroe and established a general mercantile business, which grew to large proportions, his trading extending to sections of Ouachita Union, Lincoln and Jackson parishes. While building up a large and prosperous business he took an active interest in many other enterprises. He became vice-president of the Ouachita National bank under its first charter, and on the death of its first and former president, he became president and remained in that office until its expiration. He organized the Central Savings Bank & Trust Co., and was elected president, in which capacity he remained until his death. He also held large interest in the Monroe Hardware Co., Ltd., Standard Warehouse and Compress Co., Ouachita cotton mills, Millsaps & Co., Ltd., the Whitney Central National bank of New Orleans, and other institutions. He also owned extensive planting interests at Crew Lake. At one time he was parish superintendent of education and took great interest in the subject of good roads. He was one of the originators of the movement to build steel bridges over all the streams throughout the parish. In 1896, when the drought destroyed all the crops in Lincoln and portions of Jackson, Union and Ouachita parishes, Mr. Millsaps distributed supplies furnished by the state, in a way that gave the greatest possible relief. He was a charter member of the Knights of Pythias, Stonewall Lodge No. 8.
November 4, 1873, Mr. Millsaps married Miss Mary A. Lockett of Paducah, Kentucky. Mr. and Mrs. Millsaps were the parents of 7 children, as follow: Edmonia L., now Mrs. George Weaks; Lillie Heath, deceased; Thomas Benton, Louise Getty, deceased, wife of P. A. Atkins; Ruth Allison, now Mrs. W. C.Youngblood; Herbert Uriah, of West Monroe; Mary Aldina, now Mrs. P. M. Atkins. For some time Mr. Millsaps had been in declining health, when his death occurred March 14, 1914. Having been long and conspicuously identified with the material and moral interest of Ouachita parish, his departure left a distinct gap in the community which is not easy filled.

A History of Louisiana, Vol. 2, p. 18, by Henry E. Chambers Published by The American Historical Society, Inc. Chicago and New York, 1925.

George G. Weaks, president of the Weaks Supply Company at Monroe, is one of the representative business men of his city and vicinity, and is a scion of one of the old and prominent Louisiana families. He was born in Morehouse Parish, not far from the village of Spyker, June 22, 1868, a son of Capt. James C. and Nancy (Hedrick) Weaks, who were natives of Tennessee and Mississippi, respectively. Capt. James C. Weaks had come when but a boy of six years with his parents to Louisiana, and his youthful days were spent in Morehouse Parish. He was educated with the view of a legal career, and was admitted to practice at the Louisiana bar, but he never adopted the practice of law as a profession, believing himself better fitted for a business career. He began his career as a steamboat man on the Ouachita River, and for many years was one of the best known steamboat captains in the period when the river traffic was at its highest and the principal means of transportation. He was also a prominent factor in other ways in the affairs and the development of Louisiana. He became an influential figure in politics, in both local and state affairs, and served as United States marshal for the western district of Louisiana during the administration of President Garfield. During his term of service as marshal he resided, with his family, in Shreveport, returning again to Monroe at the expiration of his term. The high degree of efficiency and fearlessness with which the exacting duties of his office were performed, under the most trying conditions, are a matter of public record and stand as a tribute to his character. He also served as postmaster at Monroe, under appointment from President Taft. These two federal appointments indicate his political allegiance, for, despite the fact that he was born and reared a true Southerner, he was firm in his adherence to the principles of the republican party, and with the courage of his honest convictions, fearlessly followed the path of duty as he saw it. George G. Weaks grew to manhood amidst such surroundings and with those advantages common to the youth of his locality, supplemented by the cultural and social advantages of a cultured home, his earlier education being further aided by a three years' course as a student in Capt. George E. Thatcher's Institute at Shreveport. He developed an early aptitude for business, eventually establishing the supply company of which he continues president. The Weaks Supply Company is one of the leading wholesale establishments of Monroe, doing a widely extended business in mill, gin, carbon plant, drilling and railway supplies, and is an important factor in the city's commercial activities. Mr. Weaks has also taken an active part in other lines of business and commercial development. In 1916 he was one of a small group of pioneers who conducted the initial drilling operations that brought in the Monroe gas field, which has since been developed into the largest natural gas field in the world. He is also president of the Monroe Gas Company, which supplies the city with natural gas, and he is also president of the Louisiana Gas Products Corporation, manufacturers of carbon black and gasoline. In social circles be is a member of the Riverside Country Club, the Lotus Club and the Sons of the American Revolution.
Mr. Weaks married Miss Mona Millsaps, a native of Trenton, Louisiana. and a daughter of Uriah and Mary (Lockett) Millsaps. They have one son, George G. Weaks, Jr.

The Monroe News-Star Thursday, March 03, 1910       SAD DEATH TODAY.     Mrs. Prentiss Atkins Passed Away After Long Illness

It was with expressions of deepest regret that the news of the death of Mrs. Prentiss M. Atkins was heard this morning. The end came about 10:30 o'clock and in a very short while the sad news was known all over the city. The death, which occurred in her father's home in West Monroe, is a peculiarly sad one, sad to see a young woman in the very bloom of life taken from her husband and little children, besides many other close relatives. Mrs. Atkins has been in poor health for two years or more and she was forced to spend most of her time at Asheville, N.C., away from home and friends. She came home recently and steadily grew worse until death relieved her of all suffering this morning. The untimely taking away of this young wife and mother was a great shock to her friends whom she numbered by her acquaintances. Most of them knew of of (sic) her illness but few realized death was so near.
Mrs. Atkins was the daughter of Hon. And Mrs. Uriah Millsaps. She leaves besides them, her husband, Prentiss M. Atkins; two bright little girls, three sisters, Mrs. George G. Weaks, Mrs. Claude Youngblood and Miss Aldina Millsaps; two brothers, Benton Millsaps and Herbert Millsaps, besides many other relatives and a host of friends.
The funeral services will take place tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock and will be held at the First Presbyterian church. Interment will be in the city cemetery immediately following.
Blue Pin The Monroe News-Star Friday,  March 04, 1910     Mrs. Prentis Atkins - At Rest

Never was there a sadder death, or one to cast more loom over the community than the passing away of Mrs. Prentis Atkins, the young wife and mother, who beautiful in her frailty had been an invalid almost the entire period of her married life, as it was in her happiest days, when the world to her was bright and fair, and roses and sunshine should have ordered her pathway through a long and happy life, that the dread disease, consumption, marred the brightness of her life, and though bouyant (sic) in spirits with hopes almost to the last, she lived, but not contented, realizing the end was drawing to a close. Having spent eighteen months or more at Asheville, N.C., Mrs. Atkins felt there was no further benefit to be derived so by earnest request returned to her girlhood home, the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Uriah Millsaps, of the West Side, where surrounded by loved ones, a devoted husband, two sweet little daughters, all in the power of man was done to check the inroads of the dread disease, and save the young life but all to no purpose, for our Heavenly Father had made the summons and the call was answered on yesterday morning.
This evening at 3 o'clock the funeral services were conducted from the Presbyterian church, a large concourse of sympathizing friends having formed the cortege, following the remains from her home where had gathered relatives and dear friends, bringing with them many beautiful and fragrant floral tributes to the young life so early taken. At the church the services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. Geo. D. Booth, who read the impressive service, making selections from the 39 Psalm and I Corinthians, and saying the prayers for the dead. During the service Mrs. Atkins' favorite songs were sung, Mr. H.G. Prophit, in a tender and most feeling manner, singing "The Holy City" to which home the young spirit had been taken. The choir sang the other-the little Sunday School anthem, "Will There Be Any Stars in My Crown?" frequently sung to the frail mother by her two little ones on their return from Sabbath School. At the cemetery, Rev. Mr. Booth concluded the commitment service with a most beautiful prayer. Many out of town relatives were in attendance at the funeral. The pall bearers were Messrs. V.M. Lynch, P.H. Chauvin, A.L. Green, D.A. Beard, P. Weaks, Percy Sandel. The floral offerings were many and beautiful.
v. Ruth Allison Millsaps married W. Claude Youngblood 
vi. Herbert Uriah Millsaps

Aldina married her dead sister's husband, Prentiss Marsailis Atkins--they had two additional daughters, Ruth and Lockett who were 1st cousins, as well as half-sisters to his first two daughters, Louise and Polly--Louise was my grandmother
