RECOLLECTIONS OF
An Interesting Bit of History-Old Days
In Augusta-Many Familiar Names
and Places, Etc.
For The SrKCTATort:
If in the evening of life one sits down
and takes a retrospective view of the
days of his childhood, he finds many
things of Interest to ponder over,inthe
pathway from the cradle to the grave.
In thus looking back I have a vivid
recollection of my first day at school,
the old log house and large white oak
tree that shaded it, the venerable old
teacher and scholars that attended the
school. The house lias long been torn
down, the woodman's axe spared not
the tree, uothing left to mark the spot
hut a fast decaying stump, but the sur
roundings are historic. Cn this plot
of ground lias stood for more than a
century and a half the Old Stone
Church, (AugiiHta church) wherein the
days of the lii'nt settlement of our love
ly Valley the pioneers of this locality
convened to defend themselves from
the tomaboek and scalping knife of
the Indians, and named the place
"Fort Defiance."
Tbe teacher alluded to wrb David
Itoss, then (in 1837) an old man, the
school house stood iv the southern
corner of the spring lot, the pupils, oh !
where are they ? Echo answers where t
If any except myself are living I know
it not. The pastor of tbe chnrch was
Dr. Wm. Brown, then a licentiate just
from college, be has filled bis mission
on earth, and now his body rests be
neath the soil where the orange blos
soms sends its fragrance over the beau
tiful landscape of the State of Florida.
But why dwell here, tbe history of this
consecrated place is as familiar to the
people ot Augusta, as household words,
and throughout the western states as
well.
Allow me to digress and go back to
the days when the dark clouds of the
revolution were hanging over our peo
ple like a pall. In 1781 when Col.
Tarleton cauie near capturing the Vir
ginia legislature, then at Charlottes
ville, which reconvened ai Staunton,
where they resumed their labour, a
messenger arrived with the informa
tion that Col. Tarleton was in full
march for that place. It so happened
that on that day a Presbyterian clergy
man from Lexington o5 miles distant
was on bis way to presbytery, at Au
gusta Church, meeting with some of
his brethren who informed him of what
had occurred, he inquired if any meas
ures had been taken to call out the
militia, being answered in the negative,
he said it must be done at ouce. This
was done, and the men assembled at
Staunton that same evening. When
the {clergyman reached Lexington, a
large company assembled at bis house.
The next morning he delivered to
tbem an address suited to the occasion
—then girded on his sword, and they
immediately set out for the scene of ac
tion.
The clergyman was the learned and
pious Hey. Win. Graham then princi
pul of Liberty Hall Academy, now
Washington and Lee University.
This scrap of history I have given to
show the present generation of what
kind of nerve and patriotism their an
cestors were possessed, and the im
portance of their old church in those
days.
I will now return to the scene of my I
childhood, and oh! how changed. Adam
Link, the prince of merchants in those
days, lived in a small house now on the
east side of the turnpike in front of
the peasant residence of Mr. Edward
Crawford, his store house was on the
same side of the road and near by the
mansion of which Mr. Crawford is now
the owner, was in course of erection |
by Mr. Link at this time. The valley I
turnpike being later established was
located in the rear of Mr. Link's for I
mer residence. The only residence be
tween Mr. Link's and Mt. Sidney at
that time was that of Mr. Yount,
which stands near Rev. Mr. Wanger's
bun, (apart of the house yet remains).
There Mr. Yount carried on an exten
sive tannery. A few years later inj
1840, I was again a school boy near the
valley turnpike, the school-house at
this time was an old dwelling house
converted into a school room on the
tarm fomerly owned by the late Daniel
Sheffey, and stood nearly opposite the
present residence of Mr. Samuel Par
kins. The teacher was the late Capt.
David McFali, father of Hamilton Mc-
Fall, of Mt. Solon. A better teacher
was not in those days, and cannot be
surpassed in these. It was in this year
that the macadamizing of the Valley
pike was completed. The next dwell
ing on tbe lo.td between Link's store
and Staunton was that of the venera
ble Wm. Wilson, a story and a half,
house, later the home of his son,|
Thomas, it was destroyed by fire a
few years ago, and near its ruins was '
erected the present residence of Mr.
Doley Jordan. On a corner of this
farm adjoining the Hanger tavern
stood the blacksmith shop in which
Alexander (Sandy) Coly at that time
and for years after kept up a ringing
on the anvii. It was later occupied
by Daniel Fisber. On the right of the
road was the far famed Hanger tavern
—now the willow spout owned by Sam
uel Woods—next, was the borne of Dr.
Allen, a low house with dormer win
dows, now the residence of Mr. Frank
; lin Hell, after the death of Dr. Allen.
• Daniel Stoner bought the property
aud built the present house and
( 'b:irn which were afterwaids iuiprov
•l ed by the late Robert Hanidber
'. ger—on tbe right of the road, (the
; ! home of the late John H. Parkins)
• was owned bj Samuel Woodward, and
'■ (I think) occupied by his brother, Epb
raiin,the opposite side of the road was
in woods iv those days reaching as far
down the pike as Dr. Allen's. Beyond*
, the Woodward place was the residence
of Charles Bryan (old Charley) an ec
centric old batehelor whose costume
s was buckskin breeches and stitchdown
» shoes. Be wns a tanner by occupation
and carried on bis business at the
branch near his residence, which stood
on the site where Samuel Parkin's
1 house now stands. It was a one story
1 house with porch extending the whole
length. Charley was a self constituted
' postmaster, and kept an office for the
accommodation of bis neighbors. It
[ was here driver threw
oir a bundle o4|)Nkoton Spectators,
aud the surrounding neibgbors would
get them at their convenience. After
his death his little hirm was sold and
subdivided, the lot on which the resi
deuce stood was bought by Win. Cline
dinst who afterwards tore down tbe
old house and erected a better one and
carried on the wagou making business.
It was on the hillside on the oppo
side of the road that the school house
slood. In taking a retrospective view of
the school iv those days mv mind's eye
sees the youthful faces of Col. Win.
Anderson, Maj. Wm. Wilson, Robert
Wilson, Levi Fishburn, Kpbraim and
Robert Strasburg, Leander and John ;
Grinder. Levi and David Beard, with '
i
many other boys, as well as a goodly '
number of fair lasses, who have ended f
their young lives, and now bask in
the beautiful fields beyond. Some few '
of the boys are left, but alas ! the elas- '
ticity of their step and the radiance of '
their eyes have gone. The only ones '
that I can call to mind are Robert Uuy '
of Staunton, and Peter and Joseph '
Houff of this locality. There may be ''
others.
The farm adjoining the Bryau tan- £
yard on the westside, was owned by (
George Aylor, and occupied by Abra- *
ham Beard. David, one of his sons, in »
company with live others, perished on f
the Isthmus of Panama in 1849 while '
on their way to California ia search of |
gold. Next was the residence of Dr. '
Davidson, now the property of Andrew *
Bowling. There was at that time a '
dwelling house with several other build '
ings, including a cooper shop, standing i
on the island between the mill-race '
and the river; the mill had been owned l
by Col. Allen, later by Jacob Baylor, 1
and now by Dr. Davidson. The local J
name of the place was "Tbe Island." 1
On the opposite side of the river was
the home of Robert Anderson, father *
of Col. Wm. Anderson, now the prop- '
erty of Edward Furr. '
There was an incident that occurred (
at this place which perhaps has passed '
from the minds of those living at that
time, which I will narrate for tbe in- '
formation of the preseut generation.
Dr. Davidson and Col. Anderson were
slave owners —a negro man named
John belonging to Dr. Davidson, be*
BYGONE DAYS.
came very much enamored of a young
negress belonging to Anderson, whose
father, named Ben (also a slave of An
derson) vehemently opposed the love
match, aud forbade John calling on,
or seeing his "gal." Cupid had so
effectually shot his arrow into the
Satanic heart of John that he devised
a scheme to take lien's life. He con
federated with, and took as an accom
plice a young negro man belonging to
Anderson (whose name I have forgot
ten). The two men in the nighttime
allured Ben up the river It was said
by one of the slaves of Anderson that
John called over to the Anderson man
and he, in company -with Ben, went up
the river. Ben .never returned. In
quiry and search were made for him,
but no trace of his whereabouts could
be found, Suspicion rested upou the
two negro men, but lor want of evi
dence the matter was dropped.
In the month of March, 1841, Moses
Johnston and a younger brother, sons
of Wm. Johnston, who was afterwards
implicated with the three uegoes who
were hung near Staunton (I think in
tbe year 1845) then living near where
Mrs. Heatwole now resides, was hunt
ing wich dogs over the hills west of the
Bryan place. Their dogs barked and
howled on the top of tbe hill dividing
the pike from the river. The boys sup
posing that some wild game had enter
ed here, made an excavation acd
found a human corpse. They reported
the same, a coroner's inquest was
held and it was found to be the body
of old Ben. Thus the mystery was
unfolded. The two negroes before
mentioned had either allured him there
and killed him, or killed him at the
river aud carried him there. For want
of evidence to couvict the two men
they were sold to the Southern traders.
Sometime thereafter Dr. Root. Rob
ertson, a young physician, then living
where Sam. Hulvey now resides, ex
humed the body, gathered the bones
and adjusted them, and used them in
bis studies, keeping it in his office,
' later he moved to Missouri, and took
I tbe skeleton with him. Thus ends the
story of poor Ben.
Ou the southern corner of Ander
son's farm there was a blacksmith shop
carried on by Mr. Strasburg, father of
Ephraini and David Strasburg—at one
time connected with the Spectator.
Next was the residence of George
Grinder, later owned by Dr. Eichelber
ger, who erected a beautiful mansion
thereon. Here Grinder was bom and
died. He was toll collector for a num
ber of years for tbe Valley Turnpike
Co. Subsquently Win. Golliday bought
a lot off the eastern coruer of this farm
adjoining the pike and buiit a small
log house ou il; to this place the toil
gale was removed, and a postofliee es
tablished. This house was tbe uuclus
of the present village of Verona.
Here 1 will end my story aud return
to tbe school bouse. V lewing the
scene today from this standpoint, I see
nothing that was familiar except the
general land scape and the western
hills that bide the setting sun. The
hearts that beat then iv unison with
mine, beat no more.
Oh, sail, sad hills; Oh, cold, cold hearts.
In sorrow I've learned the truth ;
One may go back to the place of his birth,
He cannot Eo back to his youth.

STAUNTON, VA., FRIDAY, JULY 31, 1903.
NOT WHILE IT WAS LOADED.
Reason Iks Keister Gave for Disobeying
, J. W. Mauck, of Mt. Clinton, tells
, another incident of the pluck and dar
> ing of Ike Keister during the days of
I the Confederacy. The story is sug
i gested by one which appeared ill these
i columns several weeks ago. Captain
, Mauck thus recalls the incident:
"I was then a lieutenant in Compa
ny H, 10th Virginia Infantry, and in
, the ditches of the Bloody Angle near
Spottsylvania Court House. It was
on that memorable morning of May 12,
1864, when General Hancock's corps
captured General Johnson's division.
I was left in command of my company
by my senior officer making his escape.
It was there that I heard the last order
given by our brave and noble Colonel,
D. H. Lee Martz—'Boys, bold these
works at all hazards."
"We did our best, bat there was a
few too many Yanks at that meeting.
It was then that I ordered the boys to
throw down their arms and surrender,
but there was one gun that did not go
down. Hast at that moment I heard
the report of a musket, and on looking
around I saw that it was Keister who
had fired. I also saw the effect of that
last shot of his. After being taken a
short distance to the rear I said to him,
'Ike, why did you kill that Yankee af
ter my telling you to cease firing, throw
down your arms and surrender V His ,
answer was, 'I-gaddie, Lieutenant, I
was not going to throw down my gun ,
with a load in it.' We then all went ,
down to Ft. Delaware and were there J
about thirteen months. .
"There Keister did another daring .
and dangerous deed. I had just se- ,
cured a special release and did not want
to come away without letting the boys
know it. I threw a note over the par- •
apet and in that vote I invited Keister
to play muskrat and come over and see
me. Sure enough, under cover of .
darkness, he evaded the guards, got in
to the sewer pipe and in he came, a
distance, I suppose, of about 500 yards.
Ike speut most of the night with me
and returned by the same route. Had
he been detected by the guards it would
have been sure death, and if by tbe
prima officers he would have been put .
in the black hole or uung np by the (
thumbs. .
"Isaac Keister was during the days J
of the Confederacy and is up to this
time one of that kind made from the (
whole cloth, though he has a bare place
oa his scalp. lie now owns and lives

Take care of what you eat, when yon eat,

Doctor Pierces Favorite Prescription
stands alone, as the one and only remedy
for leucorrhea, female weakness, pro
lapsus, or falling of the womb, BO abso
lutely specific and sure in curing liiese
common ailments of women, as to war
rant its makers in offering to pay, as
they hereby do, the sum of $500 reward
for a case of the above maladies which
they can not cure. This is a remarkable
offer. No other medicine for the cure
of woman's peculiar ailments is backed
by such a remarkable guarantee. No
other medicine for woman's ills is pos
sessed of the unparalleled curative pro
perties that would warrant its makers
in publishing such an offer; no other rem
edy has such a record of a third of a
century of cures on which to base such
a remarkable offer.
Miss Emma Weller, who is Secretary of the
Young People's Christian Association, at 181S
Madison Avenue, New York City, says : "Your
' Favorite Prescription' is a boon to sick and
tired women, for it cures them when other med
icines fail. I know whereof I speak, for I have
had experience with it. For fourteen months I
had constant headaches; seemed too weak to
perform my daily duties, and w hen the day was
over I was too tired to sleep well. I suffered
from nervousness and indigestion, and every
thing I ate distressed me. Doctored with differ
ent physicians but received no relief. After
reading one of your books I decided to give your
'Favorite PBScription' a trial. Am very glad
I did, for I found it was just what I wanted. I
commenced to improve at once and kept getting
better until, after aeven weeks, I was entirely
cured. I have remained In perfect health ever
aince, and remain a firm friend of your ' Favor
ite Prescription.' "
The dealer who offers a substitute for
"Favorite Prescription" is only seeking
to make the little more profit afforded
by a less meritorious medicine. His
profit is your loss. Therefore, turn your
back on him as unworthy of your pat
ronage.
