M . E. COX, W a»«k»tIilo,
Of the pioneer families of Ellis
county none contributed more to the
development and populating the new
country than did the Witherspoons.
At the time of the breaking out of
the civil war the Witherspoons,
Hawkins, Garvins, Newtons and
Jenkins constituted most of the pop
ulation of the northwest corner of
the. county. J. H. Witherspoon came
to what was afterwards Ellis coun
ty with the Newtons in 184H, from
Missouri, hut was a native of Ten
nessee. In 1850 he married a Gar
vin and theirs was the first marriage
license issued in Ellis county. To
them was born John, William and
Margaret. Margaret married Dave
Garvin. After the death of his first
wife Mr. Witherspoon married Ke
becca Bell, daughter of John
another pioneer. To this union
were horn Ella, who married Robert
Miller, and live iu Dallas* county;
Charles. Sarah, who married John
Smith: S H of Midlothian, who mar
ried I.irv Smith, daughter of "%\N| !
low Pond” smith. J. K. and O. t>.
of Grand Prairie. Jennie, who mar
ried Mr. Nithul-on. The other mem
hers of the original family wore
Jaek. Finis and Margartd. Margaret |
married John II. Garvin and settled ;
eight, miles west of Waxalmrhle on j
Waxahnihle rreek in 1850. Finis
married Kate GttdwUk. a sister of
Mnso I,udwirk. who lives at Midlo
thian. Their daughter. Nannie, mar
ried a son of William (Cty. Ed anil!
Adolphus live in Denton county.
1-aura married Charlie Garvin and
lives at Meritle. Texas. Claude lives
in New Mexico. Jack Witherspoon
married Margaret Cooper, a sister of
Sam Cooper, a pioneer, still living
at Midlothian. A daughter lives at
Itoseoe. Texas. The other children
were Dttcle, Lula, J. K., O. IV, Kllu.
Ida, Went. Calvin and Lottie. Ella
and Ida were drowned in 1883.
Went is at Hosroo and Lottie married
Sam Saunders. Hen Witherspoon.
another of the original brothers,
married Miss .Mnlinda Rider. Their
oldest son, V. P.. Is dead. John lives
at Ifoldenville, Oklahoma. Sis mar
ried Sant Cooper. Mary married Alex
Jenkins and lives at Waxahnchle,
Jim Married Maude Knight at. Mid
lothian, P. II. lives at Midlothian,
where he does a large grain business,
and married to a daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. J. I. Lovett, Hen married
Sallie Kastorwood and died in Jack
County., C. 0. died recently, Annie
married Amos Klder and lives in
Dimmit county, Texan. The other
children are Ramsey, Anderson,
Thomas and Verne. This is written
from hastily taken notes and I feel
ttiat I have committed some errors.
Furthermore, do not feel that I have
done justiee to a family that has
contributed so much toward the up
building of our county. However,
there is yet another branch of the
family and when I reach it I will
correct such errors sis may appear In
this. The Witherspoons are a quick,
impressive, energetic race of people,
can generally be depended upon if
they ure your friends, and you will
know it. if they are yonr enemies.
They are generally honest, open and
frank, and taken altogether are
ruther to he admired by one who
believes in humanity and likes to see
a real live human. Long live the
Witherspoons? i
I tried last week to tell what I
am now about to relate, but it did
not appear. 1 suppose from what
one of the printers told me I did.
not make it plain, so here goes ngain.
Mrs. .1. H. Howard, who lives on
Waxahachie B, told me not long since
that from the time when she was a
small child she had contended that
she could touch a hard substance in
one ear with n hair pin, but was rid
iculed by her family. Recently shn
went to a local physician, who re
moved a hard little gravel from her
ear. She sAys it is a Tennessee
gravel and that she has carried it
in her ear all. these years.
J. M. Newcomb qf near Forreston
showed me a check for $1,721.21 as
| payment for sixteen hales of cotton
he had just sold. Add the amount
received for seed and he pot some
| money about $2,000. Moral: Don’t
put everything in cotton next year
for there is a chance to run the
price down again. \V. A. Martin
showed me a bine print of a cotton
pickers’ glove he had invented. It
is designed to piot€*ct the ends of
tlie fingers and yet in no way inter
fere with the handling of the cotton.
It looks like a winner and I hope*will
make Martin rich. Henry Bryan and
Joe and Bessie Nowlin of Stamford
have been visiting their grandpa
rents, Mr. and Mrs. John Verlieyden,
on Grove Creek. John Crude of
| Mansfield, La., is visiting his bro
ither. Arch, on Red Oak. At the
home of Mr. and -Mrs J. \V. Cress
on Calmer 2, 1 saw some fine barred
rock chickens. Mrs. Criss’ mother,
Mrs. Foster, and her sister from La
Rue are visiting her. Grover Cleve
land Wills has established a restau
rant and cold drink stand at Forres-1
ton. Ben Dorsey is now postmaster
at Forreston. Ben is capable and I
think will render good service. On
the Fort farm Will Guyer was run
ning a trai tor in front of 8 discs. I
am told that Mrs. Fort contemplates
cultivating six hundred acres of her
land in cotton by hired labor. She
may make money by it but it makes
jone feel sorry for the families forced
to hunt home because of the change
from renting to ht<ndMng herself.

M. Bearden continued at Abiieue,
S. J. Jones of Italy 1 was here

from Forrcston K, were here in their
car show day. C. Hawkins of Mil
ford gave me a smile and a dollar

I know and lie showed It by giving

Waxabachio F was hern show day.
L. V. Cole, a good farmer and a
good fellow, from ©wit of R<-d Oak,
was down to see me show -dry.
At Forrcston Friday 1 found Nes

the neatest country drug stores In
the county. 1 got in witli Ernest
Brandon and rode down to his home
and from there walked to the home
of liis parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. N.
Brandon, where flintier was ready.
I get tired saying these country din
ners are good hut it is a fact they
are all good for me. but they do
not always have an good fried chick
en and cornbread as Mrs. Brundon
cooks. I aaw in the yard a lot of
barred rock chickens as fine as you
will see anywhere. In fact they re
minded me of Mrs. Pitts’ chickens.
At the barn 1 found Poland China
hogs subject to registration. Mr.
Brandon said lie kept up the stock
of tils hogs because ho considered
the meat sweeter and finer and kept
the chickens because he thought!
them best. But he said every on*'
should get Ilia choice of breeds of
stock or poultry and stay with 't.

has been on one place five years and
