    • Soldier of War of 1812

      Newspaper Article - Thursday, December 27, 1894 Sandy Creek News - Personal Reminiscences Of A Citizen - No sketch relating to the early history of district No. 4 would be complete without referring to the part then known as Whitesborough. The name I suppose originated from the large number of families first settling there by the name of White. There were also nearly as many families there by the names of Reynolds and Stewart. These three names in time became somewhat mixed by intermarriage; especially the Whites and Reynolds. If there is anything in the idea of a moral taint in the blood the history of those families indicates that the lowest down in the strata of moral character was the Reynolds. The road running from the Ridge road school house west to the Meacham place and a road leading south about midway to the old Zibe White and Wilcox place embraced the residences of these families. On these two roads I remember only four other names besides the three mentioned, one Wilcox, one Watson, Curtiss and Scott. Old Zibe White married a Reynolds and old Lavanah Reynolds married a White. Both of these women were about the roughest, ugliest specimens of womankind that my boy eyes ever looked upon. One glance from either one of them was sufficient to send a shiver if not to utterly paralyze a boy of any ordinary nerve power, and old Zibe and old Flew, as Reynolds was called, were no handsomer than their wives. The progeny of these two pairs, and they were numerous, were at least one peg lower in the moral scale than their parents. Rufe White, the oldest son of Zibe, commenced, a career of pilfering as soon as he could carry home a chicken. The first of his depredations that I remember as being noticed was an affair he had with old Jairus Curtiss, who lived in that neighborhood. The old man drove him out of his watermelon patch and threatened him enough to excite his revenge, which he concluded to gratify by girdling a number of Curtiss apple trees. For this he was apprehended and served a term of six months in Pulaski jail on a diet of bread and water. He afterwards married a daughter of an old wheel wright by the name of Castor, who lived on that road near where Asa Brown now lives. This old man Castor was specially famous for only one thing that was for the size of his nose. This nose of his was quite a remarkable thing for the school boys to jest over. They used to tell about his nose passing up by the school house when the rest part of him was down by old Alfred White’s. But the old man was never known to find any fault with the size of his nose, on the contrary he seemed to derive a good deal of satisfaction from that prominent member by inhaling through its winding avenues the contents of his snuff box. But to return to the family of old Zibe. This same Rufe and his next younger brother, Nehemiah, both having married daughters of the big nosed man, continued a career of crime till they both landed in states prison, where they both died before their terms expired. Burt, a younger brother of these, enlisted in the army and I am told by some of his comrades from here that while there he was despised for his meaness, wanted to desert but finally to get rid of duty shot his big toe off which finally resulted in his death. An outline of the career of the original Reynolds might be given as they are well remembered by several of our old citizens now living, but it would be similar in many respects to that of old Zibe Whites family, perhaps it would be as well, they and their descendants so far as we know being nearly all dead, to let the curtain of oblivion drop over them and their deeds.
