Our Great Grandmother Anna Stone,  married three times.  Two of her children Carrie and Cecil Earl were called "half" siblings by the other children, but they were all born while Anna was with Fenn....go figure.  Anna was the daughter of Augustus Marvin Stone and he was the son of Benjamin Wilburne Stone.   Ben was the son of Michael D. Stone of 1700s Maryland who married Polly Wells in Putnam Georgia.  Michael's parents are unknown at this point but it would be fun to find he was related to the Mr. Stone who signed the Declaration....
 
Anna's mother was Mary Ann Hendrick, the daughter of Christopher Columbus Hendrick, who was only in Alabama for a short while. before moving on to Texas while the new land was for sale really cheap.
 
The Stones however returned to Macon Georgia.
 
Anna's first husband, William Franklin Fenn's ancestors came from Early and Decatur Georgia.  Anna later married Mr. Carter and then a Mr. Dasher, both need further research.
 
Her son by Fenn was called Cecil Earl Fenn Carter, so she must have remarried while he was still a very young child.
 
 
Had six children with William Franklin Fenn during her seven years of marriage. She left him in Barbour County Alabama with the children, taking only the baby and moved to join her family of Stone in Macon City, Bibb, Georgia. There she remarried and gave the baby the name of Carter. Little baby Carter told his family that his grandfather was a full blood Cherokee Chief. Of course young Carter was a tall handsome dark man like his siblings, but he did drink too much, so the chief part may or may not have been fantasy. The Fenn boys were tall, over 6' and very dark.

The Carters, Stones, Fenns were all in 1700s Georgia in Creek Indian Lands. Elijah Fenn was the son of Travis and "Mary" and the grandson of Zachariah Fann - Elijah married Martha Rich, daughter of Stephen and "Abiah" Rich. Elijah's son John married Emeline Harrell and Elijah's daughter Letitia married Thomas Rich.

Emeline named a son William Franklin Fenn in 1855. His wife Anna was called Annie. Annie's parents were Mary Ann Hendrick and Augustus Marvin Stone. Parents of Augustus were Sarah Davies and Benjamin Wilburn Stone. Ben was the son of Mary Polly Wells and Michael Stone who lived in Captain John Stones District of Putnam County Georgia. Parents of Mary Ann were Mary Ann Winters and C C Hendrick. Winters' parents were Amelia Lyle and Albert Winters, who married in 1816 Jackson County Georgia which was then Cherokee Nation East. During this era it was quite common to marry a native american and give them a Christian name.

Anna Lou's baby was named Cecil Earl and he is only found in Texas census records for 1920 and 1930 during his military service first at San Antonio and then at Fort Bliss in El Paso. On the 1900 census Anna's son Robert is not listed so she may have been pregnant at the time and she may have also raised him but I have been unable to locate her on a census after she married or lived with Mr. Carter - she was very young and may have had more children with Carter. There are some possibilites with the census records but the woman is listed as black and widowed - then there is one Arnie Carter which could be Annie in Macon GA and she is alone, a laundress. Even so, in 1910 and 1920 there is no Robert listed as her son and the family knew him personally and he did exist and I found his tombstone by his brother Frank Jr. Then her son Arthur is not found after 1910 even though
family says he married, had children, and died in his 20s.  Cecil married Alice Emma McClain, sometimes referred to a Emily Alice or Ellie;  she was the daughter of Lorena Emma Bozeman and Charles Allen McClain.

  • Our great grandfather Charlie McClain's father came out of Georgia during the Civil War leaving behind a wife and children, who eventually filed divorce.  The McClains originally were from Virginia, migrating into South Carolina, with the marriage of a Charles McClain to Elizabeth Moon around 1760 and she gave him several sons who migrated into Georgia long before the Trail of Tears.

    Mars Hill Cemetery in Cobb County GA

    connects to Josiah McClain of South Carolina who's father was Charles McClain who might have been in the American Revolution; Charles had married Elizabeth MOON in Virginia around 1780 and then migrated into the Carolinas where their children were born.

    Josiah was born in 1788 SC and found on census in Georgia. The name on his headstone is JOSAH

    Josiah had James in 1810, John Milton, William Smith, etc.
    Josiah also had Charles Pinkney McLain in 1818 SC

    They all had many children.

    James named his son Josiah Marion McClain born 1838 who became my great grandfather thru his own son Charles Allen McClain.

  • Thanks for visiting I am researching many of my grandparents. Hans Brooks of Holland and his son John Brooks born 1837 in Pennsylvania. John Baptist Bond, Caroline Bond and Thomas Smith, grandson of John Smith, Annie Clark Ballard, granddaughter of Larkin Francis Ballard, Rowena Densy Baxter, Peter Bozeman of the American Revolution, his son William Henry to Peter Edward, Elisha Anderson to Seaborn Montgomery Anderson, Lavinia Brack, Hester Doty, William Sellers, Charles McClain and Josiah, Gideon Moon, Elijah Lee, Andrew Cooper, Frank Cochran, Isaac Coonfield, Captain George Little of Scotland, Christopher Coonfield of Holland, Alexander Cochran of Scotland, Abraham Crigler, Lydia Carpenter, Polly Duval, Jesse Simmons, Kitty Stone, Hester Ward, James Young, Charles and Catherine Weatherford of Virginia, John C. Wright, John Wright Little, Reason Roby, John Fann of England, Zachariah Fenn, Anna Lou Stone, Frank Fenn, Augustus Marvin Stone, Mary Angeline Partridge and George Thornton, Milton Elijah Thornton, Bessie Mae Hood and Ella Olivia Baxley, and many more.
    Most believe the Boseman or Bozeman families came from Holland and this we may never know. Edword Bozeman was found in the 1790 census of Baltimore, Maryland; John in Talbot, MD; Lawrence Bouseman in Baltimore. Some served in the American Revolution and received a pension along with grants of land, for instance, the South Carolina Archives lists some as Gabriel, John, Paul, Jesse, Ralph, James, Mordecai and probably more with different spellings of our last name. Of course it would be nice to learn more about Mordecai even his middle name and if he was the son of Samuel Edward Bozeman and Mary White, after all, her brother was named Mordecai and the name Edward has continued over many centuries.

    So many names were Biblical yet then we find another set of Bozemans named Ralph, Fred, George, and Lewis. Names were so very special, most often, after another dearly loved family member.

    These families were farmers and many had well educated, successful careers, mostly throughout the South, as they explored each new territory as it became available.

    Reverend Bozeman did a marvelous job writing his "Sketches of the Bozeman Family" in 1885 and a couple of pages were scanned to share indicating the whereabouts of Mordecai. He does not say anything about Mordecai being a fatality of the Revolution so we can only assume that he died later from natural causes, and hopefully that information will come to light soon.

    The 1810 census of Darlington SC shows only four Bosemans, John, James, Peter and Chapman. 1800 shows a Thomas living in Somerset NC. The name Thomas is carried on through the next century.

    * From 1798 to 1819, a steady influx of Europeans into Alabama settled on land formerly occupied by several Native American tribes. Alabama became a part of the Mississippi Territory in 1798 after Indian cessions in north Alabama. Migration increased after the end of the Creek War in 1814. In 1817, the Alabama Territory was created, and Alabama became the 22nd in December 1819. PETER BOZEMAN was in Alabama on the 1830 census.

    William was the son of Peter and Sarah Bozeman.

    Peter was the son of Mordecai and both were from NC
    and served in the Militia of the SC Continental Line. They
    are listed in the SC Archives under Colonial Soldiers
    of the South.

    Virginia to Maryland to North Carolina and beyond...

    Fact, fiction or folklore, by the time the American Revolution was over, there were dozens of Bozeman families throughout the South.

    They resided among several different tribes of native americans and have many indian brides in their ancestral charts.


    In January 2008 the DAR has finally listed Peter Bozeman.

    Mordecai Bozeman born 1735 NC, while there were only a few colonies on the coast, while it was still Indian Nation and his son Peter born 1758 served in the American Revolution. Documents show that both were paid 4 pounds for their service. Nothing more is found on Mordecai but his son Peter moved his family to Montgomery Alabama about 1826 - 1827. His son William Henry is my connection.
    However, we must note that Peter's second son was named Jesse in 1793. There was another Jesse in the Revolutionary War who lived by Peter on the 1800 Darlington Census so there is a strong possibility they were brothers. Or that Mordecai went by another name, middle name, and could have been there. Peter's first son was named Meade so that might have some connection to his mother or his mother in law - perhaps their maiden names....
    William and Martha Hill ( daughter of John Hill of South Carolina) had Peter Edward Bozeman who married Nancy Jane Anderson ( daughter of Lavinia Jane Sellers, who's mother was Lavinia Brack) and had John Thomas - John married Alice Lorena Stephens and had Lorena Emma Bozeman - Lorena married Charles Allen McClain, the only son of Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain. Their daughter Alice Emma McClain married a dark handsome Cherokee named Cecil Earl Fenn Carter about 1931 and had Anne Alice Carter in 1934. Cecil's parents were Anna Stone and Wm Franklin Fenn. Anne was orphaned at the age of 5 and lived with her McClain Grandparents. Anne Carter married Frankie Lavern Cochran in 1951.

    Frank was the son of Luella Ellen Coonfield and Frank Delbert Cochran of Chetopa Kansas and Frank had one eighth Cherokee blood. Luella's parents were mixed Cherokee, Lattie Cedonia Little of Kentucky and Benjamin Wallace Coonfield of Arkansas. Frank Delbert's parents were Clora Jane Miller of Illinois and Jacob Benjamin Cochran of Ohio. Clora's parents were Mary Clara Parker of New York and James Miller of Rockingham Virginia. Parents of Mary Clara were Rosannah Lemmon and Archelaus Parker, a son of Sarah Tefft and Archelaus Richardson Parker of Massachusetts and New York Indian Country 1600s.

    Anne Carter Cochran's daughter Kathy married Charles Wayne Brooks of Montgomery Alabama. His parents were Mary Ella Thornton and James Edgar Brooks. Mary Ella's parents were Bessie Mae Hood and Milton Elijah Thornton. Parents of James were Susie Mae Cooper and James E Brooks Sr. Parents of Susie were Sarah Elizabeth Carter and Levi Benjamin Cooper. Parents of Milton were George Thornton and a native american named Mary Angeline Partridge out of Georgia.
    Parents of James Sr were Annie Clark Ballard and John Edwin Brooks from Maury County TN. John's parents were Roxanna Permilia Smith of TN and John Brookes of PA and his family came from Holland. The Ballards were from North Carolina 1700s.

    Thus all of the Brooks children descend from many surnames including the Bozemans and Carters.

      Bozeman in SC Militia, father of Peter, John, James and probably Ralph and Paul. Mordecai could have been the son of Mary White and Samuel Bozeman of Bladen County North Carolina and born 1735, while it was still Cherokee Indian Territory. The researchers of his son John claim that John was half Cherokee so the other sons would also be half blood. This makes sense since nothing is known about his wife and his marriage is not recorded anywhere thus far - some speculate that his wife was called Elizabeth
