|173||(Research):From "Mississippi A Guide to the Magnolia State," compiled and written by the Federal Writer's Project of the Works Progress Administration, The Viking Press, New York, 1943, page 487:|
Toccopola (Ind., the crossing of the Roads), was, before the white man came, an Indian village so old that in the annals of the Chickasaw the date is unknown. In 1840, however, two Carolinians, Tobias and Allison Furr, settled here. Tobias Furr built a water mill on the creek and Allison established a store at the crossing of two roads. Other settlers made home in the vicinity, and eventually the Indian name TOK-A-PULA was corrupted to Toccopola. Immediately following the War between the States, W. B. Gilmer, who was forced by a wound received in the war to forsake farming for school teaching as a profession, establishing Toccopola College, an academy for boys and girls. This college continued operation until 1907. Toccopola's future was shattered when the Gulf, Mobile & Northern R.R. passed it up in preference to Pontotoc, its rival.
Allison Furr went to Mississippi in 1846, but returned to Concord, North Carolina. He went back to Mississippi in two covered wagons in 1848. This time he built a two story house on the land he purchased from the Indians.
On 1 October 1847, Allison Furr purchased 400 acres in Cabarrus County for $50 from William A. Furr, James B. Furr, Samuel M. Furr, Elizabeth C. Biggers, Jacob Shoulabaringer and wife, Mary Ann and Sarah L. Furr (Deed Book 18, page 91).
On 28 September 1850, Allison Furr sold 82 and 1/2 acres in Cabarrus County to William S. Brewer for $600 (Deed Book 18, page 394).
On 10 December 1868, Allison Furr sold 35 acres in Pontotoc County, Mississippi, to Souter and Wood for $105.
Per Debi Baugh, Clemintine Rinehardt was married to another Allison Furr (21 April 1860). The 1860 census (Cabarrus County) shows him as 21 and her as 22. The 1850 census has this Allison as 40 which would be correct.

|177||(Research):George appears to have been named after his Uncle, George Washington Wilson, who was a younger brother of George's father.|
George grew up in Monroe County, Tennessee. In 1848, when he was twenty-one years old, he came to Illinois, with his new wife, Jane. George was a tanner by trade. For one year, they settled on Chateau Island in Madison County - an island of about 40 acres located on Illinois side of the Mississippi River, a short distance above where later was built the Merchants Bridge at St. Louis, Missouri.
He then moved to Macoupin County, Illinois, for two years- where he split rails. He finally came to Montgomery County in the Spring of 1855, and settled on current site of Panama, Montgomery County, Illinois. In the 1860, census George was shown living with his wife, who was eleven years younger than him, and five of his children.
In 1864, George went to California to find gold - "he decided to seek his fortune in the gold fields of California and in company with many others made the entire trip in covered wagons, enduring many hardships while in route; after remaining in California for some time, he traveled to centralamerica and the Isthmus of Panama, returning to Illinois in 1866". He might have gone with G. Wm. B. Ragsdale and Margaret Cox.
In 1866, he moved to a prairie farm in Montgomery County. He had a very fine apple orchard.
In a 1874 illustrated atlas of Montgomery County, he is shown owning 100 acres in the southeast portion of Section 8 of East Fork Township. He is also shown in the atlas owning 10 acres in section 16.

After 1900, George lived with Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Davis (his niece).
On October 7, 1899, George and Jane had a Golden Wedding Anniversy Party.

|181||(Research):Germanna Record No. #13 indicates that Reuben is considered to be the son of Conrad Reuben Wilhoit. Three of his sons (James, William, & Daniel) moved to Missouri. He was erroneously listed as "Reubin White" as the groom's name in Germanna Record No. #10. On 8 August 1801 "Reuben Willhight" bought 148 acres of land in Washington County, TN (now Campbell County) from Peter Stout. He appears on several other deeds in Washington County with the last deed dated on 15 January 1819. About this time, he moved to Cherry Creek in White County (TN), joining Abraham Broyles and Solomon Yager. On 6 January 1853, Reuben and Mary (wife) sold their interest in the estate of Solomon Yager, deceased, they being his lawful heirs. In the 1850 census of White County, TN, Reuben listed as age 75 (born 1775) and Mary is listed as age 60 (born 1790) which is incorrect. Mary was born in 1778. They were married in 1794. According to 1860 census of White County, TN Reubin and Mary are residing with three children: Elizabeth, Eliza J. (born 1843) and Thomas (born 1843). According to the inscription on Reuben's tombstone, he was born in 1768 and he died on 6 December 1862. If that is correct, Reuben was a twin to Samuel. His grave is located at the Wilhite Cemetery, located behind the Willis Cunningham farm in the Cherry Creek District near Sparta, TN. There is a picture on the tombstone which states "Son of Conrad Wilhite."||Wilhoit, Reuben (I5259)

|185||(Research):Granville Stinebaugh and Mary Polly Russell lived in Buffalo, Dallas County, Missouri until he came to Texas in 1861. All of his children, except Braxton McCord, were born there. Granville caught "gold fever" and joined the "49 ers", who traveled overland to California in 1849, leaving behind his wife, Sarah and his first daughter, Nancy Mildred. Although, he and his compatriots had some luck in the mining fields, they lost everything to swindlers and he returned to Missouri penniless. His only memoir of the California experience was a conch shell, which he picked up for his wife. According to his granddaughter, in her monograph, "Our Heritage", Mary told Granville that she would rather have the conch shell than all the gold in California.|
Granville and family, together with his brothers, John and James left Missouri for Texas in 1861, settling first in West Collin County near Pilot Point. In 1865, he and his brothers sold out and moved to East Collin County, just north of Dallas. His homestead became the site of the little town, Nevada, Texas. He was a veteran of the Civil War. He was a private in Company H, Quartermaster under the command of Major General J. B. Mcgruder

|187||(Research):GRIMES, John Fusson GRIMES— We were grieved to hear of Uncle John Grimes' death. We know how to sympathize with his relatives that he left behind. Source: The Vidette (Iuka, Miss.), February 8, 1940.— THE VIDETTE, FEBRUARY 08, 1940, OBITUARY— The last Confederate veteran in Tishomingo County, John Fuson Grimes, died at the home of his son, George Grimes, near Holcut, Miss., early Saturday morning, February 2, 1940. He was 93 years, 5 months, and 21 days old and had lived in Tishomingo County ever since he was six years old, moving here with his parents from Fayette, Miss., in 1852 and settling within five miles of where he died. As a boy of about 10, he had attended the big celebration held at the new town of Iuka when the golden spike marking the completion of the Memphis & Charleston Railroad was driven. Fifty years later, he saw the completion of the Birmingham Division of the Illinois Central, and from his home high on a hill, he could see the trains run over the land which his father had settled in long ago. In those nearly 100 years of existence, he had seen the primitive log school houses with the split log benches and clay floors, where the blue-black speller was the chief book used, give way to the brick consolidated school, one of which he could see from his home. He had seen the slow moving ox wagon give way to the swift moving automobiles and airplanes. Too young to enlist at the beginning of the Civil War, he saw service the last two years with Roddy under Forrest and was in several important battles.

|199||(Research):I could not locate Thomas Wilson on the 1920 Census. He must have been living in Franklin Co., Illinois at this time. The World War I draft registration card that he completed on Jun 5, 1917 listed his place of residence at Orient, Illinois which is an area in the Denning Township.|
The migration of Thomas and his brother Frank are unknown during the 1940's and 50's. It is know that by 1960 they were living next door to each other in Lamont, Kern Co., California. A few months before his death Thomas moved into a nursing home in Lancaster where he died.
