First White Child Was Born
Within Its Walls
All That Remains of Famous Home
stead are Two Gaunt Chimneys.
Home First Burned During
Civil War.
Decatur, July 22.—(Special.) — There
stands near Moulton Heights, a suburb
of Decatur, two tall, rough, moss covered,
old-fashioned, massive stone chimneys
which have interwoven about their past
a story of historic Interest to all North
Alabama. Years ago there stood between
these chimneys an old-fashioned pioneer
house within whose walls was born the
first white chjld that was ever born in
this county, which in those days was
called Cotaeo county.
This child was A. A. Burleson, the son
of Jonathan Burleson, who came to Ala
bama from Kentucky In the year 1818, one
year before Alabama became a state of
the Union. On the night A. A. Burleson
was born there was an alarm of Indians
and the mother and child were taken away
to a place of safely. In those days the
present city of Decatur was but a mere
village, a trading post for the Indians
as it were.
There was a house between those chim
neys as the commencement of the civil
war, but it was burned during the war.
After the war there was another house
built for these chimneys and this ho;se,
too, was burned a few years ago. All
■that remains now' to remind one of the
spot where the first white child was horn
in Morgan county are the tall stone chim
Practice Medicine in Decatur.
A. A. Burleson became a physician and
for many years practiced medicine in De
catur and later on moved to Arkansas.
The years of his early boyhood were try
ing ones, for in those days this entire
country was inhabited with Indians and
there were many Indian uprisings against
the whites.
Jonathan Burleson ,the further of A. A.
Burleson, was a prominent man in his
day. He was a soldier in the war of 1812
and was in many engagements with the
Indians during his life. He held a num
ber of offices of trust in his time! among
these being that of county commissioner
ami justice of, the peace. He became a
wealthy planter.
How Horse Thieves Were Suppressed.
The elder Burleson was a man of iron
nerve and constitution. It is said that
prior to the year 1820 a gang of horse
thieves infested this part of the country
and committed many depredations. A
body of citizens, who desired to be rid
of these thieves, met in convention in
what is known as Salt Peter cave, a few
miles south of Decatur. This convention
passed resolutions which partook of the
nature of laws. That convention has since
been called ‘The First Legislature.' *
Jonathan Burleson was chosen secretary
of this convention and his brother Joe
Burleson was chosen as its president. The
holding of this convention and the pass
ing of the resolutions had a good effect,
for it broke up the gang of horse thieves
for all times.
The cave where the convention was held
is today a popular resort for young people
and picnics, who visit the place frequently
during the long hot summer months little
dreaming that within the chambers of
this cave ‘‘the first legislature” was held
many years ago.
Today the old house site where A. A.

Burleson was born many years ago is
surrounded by a field of cotton and corn
and the plantation song of the negro field
hand is heard, instead of the war whoop
of the Indian as was the case during the
: trying days when young Burleson first
saw the light of day.
A number of the descendcnts of A. A.
Burleson still reside in this county and
they are numbered among the best and
most substantial citizens of the county.
By Romantic Marriage Young Man Be
comes His Step-father’s Brother-in-law.
Columbus, Ga.. July 22.—(Special.)—By
a romantic marriage just consummated in
Columbus. C. H. Bellingham, a young
man holding a position with the Southern
Bell Telephone company in this city be
comes his stepfather’s brother-in-law. His
fair bride is Miss Emmie Storey, of Bu
ena Vista, Ga. The young people had
planned to marry in the fall, and the
wedding, which was performed at the
residence of the Rev. J. W. Howard, a
Baptist minister of this city, came as a'
surprise to the friends of the couple.
On account of the previous marriage of
Mr. Dellingham’s widowed mother to Mr.
Storey, a brother of the bride, his re
lations with the members of the family
become somewhat complex. Mr. Delling
ham is now a brother-in-law of his own
mother, and she is a sister-in-law to her
daughter-in-law. The groom is a brother
in-law of his own stepfather. By reason
of the marriage Mr. Bellingham has two
mothers of the same name—Storey.
