A genealogy reports that Mariah's full name was Mariah Elizabeth Camp.  But
the 1900 census reports her middle initial as P.  Note that the 1880 census
enumerates her as Mariah E.  Her memorial on Find a Grave reports her name as
Mariah Dexter Camp Philpot.  This name Dexter was also reported by her
granddaughter on Ward Philpot's death certificate.  It is likely this stands
for the full name Poindexter, which may be a first married name, or an extra
middle name.  One genealogy suggests this name Poindexter but gives no source. 
Since she was only about 19 when she married Ward Philpot, it is unlikely she
was previously married, so Poindexter is likely a second middle name.

In the 1910 census, she is enumerated under the name Dexter.  Mariah is a
widow reported with several children and her son Ward reported as Head of the

We see here that the last child was born in Indian Territory, a considerable
distance away.  Dexter and her husband have lived in Prestiss County,
Mississippi, where they are now, for decades.  Yet 7 years ago, her daughter
Maggie was born in Indian Territory, she is now a widow and yet they are right
back where they were.  The family moved to Chicasaw Nation after the 1900
census, but Sam died there in 1903, in Paul's Valley, which became the County
Seat of Garvin County, Oklahoma.

Note that the 1880 census reports her age as 14, which would make her birth
year 1866.  But other sources report her birth year as 1860 or 1862, meaning
she would have been about 18 or 20 in 1880.

Another genealogy reports that Sam's wife was Mariah Poindexter Johnson.  But
there are no records, sources or explanations to support this.  There is no
information definitively eliminating or conflicting with either of these names
for the wife of Samuel D Philpot.  The information supporting the name Mary
Elizabeth Camp is firmer, but I have been able to find no marriage record for
Samuel D Philpot.

The last name of Camp was reported as Kemp on the death certificate of her son
Ward.  Her first name was reported as Dexter, according to a transcription

Notes for Adam CAMPBELL


Adam and his brother Elisa are said to have left their home in Charleston SC
to go up into the mountains to live with the Cherokee. There Adam met John
Green, father to Lucresa. He is listed as John's partner in a will he left
when he passed away. They owned a gold mine. The mine was left to daughter
Lucresa. They were Cherokee.  Accounts tell us Adam hid Lucresa and son
Alexander in brush when the Cherokee were forced from their lands to keep them
from being taken away.

"They were not legally married according to white men's laws.  They made their
way to Georgia and lived with Cherokee people there, then traveled to Walker
County Alabama and had several children.  They were buried there on their own
property because Lucresa wasn't allowed to be buried in a white man's cemetery
due to her Cherokee heritage.  The family never received government
reimbursement for the lands that the government took from Lucresa during the
Indian removal.  This is due to the fact the marriage could not be proven. 
Adam was a preacher at one time and a Union sympathizer during the civil war."
--  Geni,

The dates and places cited in some of the records and references to Adam and
his locations are puzzling.

I am uncertain about this statement that they went to Georgia to live with the
Cherokees there after avoiding the Cherokee Removal from Carolina, when the
Georgia Cherokee land was included in the Removal.  But the removal was in
stages form the east over a period.  Even the first Alabama lands where they
later lived in DeKalb County were originally Cherokee land.  The dates
commonly reported for the Removal are 1836-39.

Adam bought land in Alabama in 1852, but it was in DeKalb County, the Lebanon
area, not Walker County, where all later events are referenced.  But they were
buried in Walker County, and apparently on what was family land near Smith

DeKalb County, Alabama, was created out of lands ceded to the US Government by
the Cherokee Nation in connection with the forced Removal.  The area that
became DeKalb County was once the home of Sequoyah, who developed the Cherokee
alphabet.  I have not been able to find clear evidence of purchase of this
land in Walker County.  But their graves are on land near Spring Lake, Walker
County, Alabama.

In 1850, Adam and Lucinda were enumerated with their children in Cass County,
Georgia, consistent with the statement above about their moving to Georgia
after the Cherokee Removal.

Adam bought land in the Lebanon area of DeKalb County, Alabama in 1852, where
all later events are referenced.  This was an original area of the Cherokee
Nation and the area was the home of Sequoyah.

This reference to Huntsville on this land registration is questionable.  The
land is in DeKalb, and registration was made in the Lebanon office, according
to the certificate, and Huntsville is in Madison County, two counties to the
northeast.  I have not seen the original document.  There may be errors in
this transcription.

The History of Walker County : its towns and its people says Adam later states
he has lived on the same farm near Jasper, Walker County, for 19 years, making
it since 1853.  The Walker County land records, however, record that he first
"entered government land" there in 1855.  But that could be the formal date of
filing his purchase, after living there for a couple of years.  The
certificate of land registration I have seen for Walker is dated January 1858
(registration date).  Walker County is four counties west of DeKalb County.

Land record for Adam Campbell 1855
"Campbell, Adam, entered government land in Section 1, Township 13, Range 6,
on January 4, 1855.  Walker County Tract Record"

The certificate on that 80-acre tract of land for this 1855 purchase was
recorded on 1 March 1858.  Perhaps it took him three years to pay for the
land.  Five years after the record of purchase, in the 1860 census, Adam and
Lucresa are living in Walker County, Alabama, near Jasper.

Lucresa died only two years after this census.  She was buried on their farm. 
Adam was buried next to her after his death in 1873.

Records of various kinds indicate that Adam and his family lived in Walker
County, Alabama.  In an affidavit in 1872 he states that he has lived in his
present location, about 20 miles from Jasper, Alabama, working as a farmer,
for 19 years (since 1853).  That would mean they moved about a year after he
bought the land in DeKalb County.  I have not found a record of the sale, but
that may be how he funded the purchase of his farm in Walker County.

In 1870, the enumerator manages to spell the family name correctly.  (Probably
earlier enumerators were actually correctly recording the name as the family
pronounced it.  You will hear it pronounced that way today by some.)  In this
census, Adam is not noted as unable to read and write, though such a
designation is give for Rebeca and General.  Note also that now Adam is
reported as born in Georgia, not South Carolina.

In this census, the youngest child in Adam's home was a daughter Salina age 7. 
Thus she born in about 1863, after the death of Lucresa.  It appears that the
second person listed in Adam's household is Rebecca age 30.  No Rebecca has
been in the household before.  This appears to be Adam's second wife, whom he
married after Lucresa's death.  So this Salina would be Rebecca's daughter.

I do note that none of the Campbell genealogies I have seen record Rebecca as
a second wife, or have Salina as a child.  At least one lists Rebecca as a
daughter, even though she does not show up until the 1870 census.  Some have
an additional child, Joshua born about 1857, but this child is not reported in
the 1860 or 1870 census.  The genealogies reporting this child have no death
date for Joshua.  They also lack James who shows up in the 1870 census, and
appears to be Adam's son, not a grandchild. Some link to the proper 1860 and
1870 censuses, but do not account for these individuals.

James is likely Lucresa's child, since his age puts his birth in 1862, and if
exact (if he has actually had his 8th birthday as reported), he was born
several months before Lucresa's date of death on her grave, 13 September 1862. 
If his age is general and he has not yet actually had his 8th birthday, it
could be that Rebecca died in childbirth with him or soon after.

Adam was a veteran of the Seminole Wars.  Many Cherokees fought with US forces
in the three conflicts with the various Seminole tribes south of US territory
in the Spanish province of East Florida (West Florida already being Us
Territory, as part of the Louisiana Purchase).  During the CIvil War, Adam and
his sons supported the Union and John R and Alexander joined the 1st Alabama
Cavalry (USA).

Adam supported the Union as he could on home ground, and testified after the
war in a series of about 15 affidavits as to his loyalty for the Union all
during the secession movement and war (referred to in USA documents as "the
Rebellion").  In this affidavit he testifies that at one point he was arrested
by local authorities for his support of the Union and was held in the county
jail for two months.  He was arrested several other times on similar charges. 
He provided supplies to the Union forces, and after the war presented claims
for payment, which were approved.

Adam Campbell
Birth Nov. 12, 1802 Anderson County, South Carolina
Death Dec. 22, 1873, Walker County, Alabama

Adam Campbell was born in SC to Robert CAMEL his Mother's name was Rachel?
[The family name was Campbell, colloquially pronounced Camel, just as we still
today often hear it.  It was sometimes spelled that way.  It was sometimes
spelled that way.  I've heard it in my time.  -- OBJ]

In 1829 Adam Campbell is in the Pendleton Dist SC when he received land from
his father-in-law John Greene. (Deeds, Vol S, p. 490. 50 acres on Rocky River,
Pendleton Dist, SC.)
In 1830 Pendleton Dist SC, the land of Adam Campbell was sold by Sheriff to
James E. Reese. (Vol. S, p. 620., 50 acres Beaverdam Creek. Pendlton Dist.
SC.) This was to satisfy a levy of $84.00 against Adam Campbell, Where he was
charged & convicted of Hog Stealing.

In 1836 Adam Campbell served in the Georgia Militia, Forsythe County called
out for the Seminole War. Adam Campbell, private, was listed in the first
company of the Forsythe Guards led by Captain James Gaston. This made him
eligible to participate and win the Land Lottery of 40 acres.

Adam Campbell was engaged in the mining business in Forsythe County. According
to Shadburn's Pioneer History of Forsythe County, GA Vol 1, the Ad Campbell
Mine located on land lot 427 1st Dist, 1st Section Forsythe County was named
for the original prospector, Adam Campbell.  Mr. Campbell in the early 1840's
with the assistance of slaves, sunk a shaft one hundred feet deep and ran
tunnels in both directions on a vein. The ore brought to the surface was put
into an igneous stamp mill constructed on the location.  It appears that Mr.
Campbell was successful in his mining operations.

In 1858 Adam purchased his first 80 acres of 205 total in Walker County
Alabama becoming one of the early settlers. This is where he and his Cherokee
wife Lucresa Green Campbell (09 May 1804 - 13 Sep 1862) raised their Family.

When the Civil War broke out Adam was a strong Unionist. He took three of his
Sons to Huntsville Alabama to enlist as in the AL 1st Calvary.  I know of at
least twice that Adam was arrest[ed] while traveling during the Civil War. He
was held in jail in Blountsville, AL for two months and then another time in
Birmingham.  Adam sacrificed much for this Country. He lost two Sons to the
War and after the War he applied to the Claims Commission and received $220.00
for his losses.

Adam Campbell died 22 Dec 1873 at his home located on the Sipsey Fork of the
Warrior River off the Smith Lake Dam Road.  My husband made the Cemetery Sign
and we placed it by the side of the road leading back into the woods to their
resting place.

think the doctor would know.  The attending doctor's home address is
Texarkana, Arkansas, and he reported that she died in Wadley Hospital.  Wadley
is in the Texas side of the town, in Bowie County, Texas, as the death
certificate states.  I find it hard to believe that the attending doctor got
the actual hospital name wrong, and Wadley in definitely in Texas.

Notes for Juleyan CAMPBELL

Adam and Lucretia’s daughter Juleyan Campbell Blevins, married Reverend
Armstead Elza Blevins, Jr. on 28 Oct 1868 in Walker County, AL. I have a copy
of Juleyan’s application for admission into the Cherokee Nation for herself
and six of her seven sons. (The oldest, my GG-Grandfather General Jackson
Blevins, was 24 at the time and not living at home). Here is a copy of the
application (it is hard to read):

The application was never approved, and we have hit a dead-end where
Lucretia’s family is concerned. We suspect that her mother was Cherokee and
that Lucretia was actually 1/2 Cherokee. But it is also possible that her
father John Green, is the same John Green who’s sister Nancy Anne’s
descendant Sheri Horton, wrote you that she had proven the Cherokee lineage of
John and Nancy Anne’s parents, Meshack and Lucretia Franklin Green.

Juleyan Campbell Blevins
Birth Nov 12, 1844, USA
Death Jan 14, 1921, USA

Juleyan was the daughter of Adam and Lucresa Green Campbell. She is reported
to have had red hair like her father Adam.

She married Reverend Armstead E. Blevins on Oct 28, 1868 at her family home.

Her mother Lucretia Green Campbell is believed to have been of Cherokee blood.
This is further evidenced by the fact that Juleyan made an application in 1894
for Citizenship in the Cherokee Nation for herself and her sons: Benjamin F.,
Bird and John Robert (twins), Joseph, Dillard and Armstead A. We don't know
why she didn't list her son General Jackson, or her daughters Peggy, Mary and
Minolevia "Minnie."

See the photo of this application: It appears to be dated and signed by
Juleyan on 7 Sep 1894. She made the application at 49 years of age as the
daughter of "Lucretia Campbell" whom she "believes was an Indian belonging to
said tribe."

We do not believe that the application was ever approved and at this time,
have no information as to why.

She is buried with her husband in the Blevins family cemetery, located on
property formerly belonging to her son General Jackson Blevins and later to
C.P. White, MD near a house of rock built by G.J. Blevins near McKinley's
Chapel in Cullman County, AL near Wilburn and Bremen. The rock house had a
building stone (but it has disappeared) that showed:

Notes for George CAMPMIRE

The following marriage record in the Pickens County Marriage Book appears to be
for George Campire (or Campmin) and Mary (Polly) West.  Two different
transcriptions of the marriage license are found in the library,
one with each spelling.  The marriage occurred in April 1860, then Mary and
George appear in the 1860 census in June, with her father George in their

On the marriage record the clerk wrote Mary's name as Polly Rest, but the
judge who performed the ceremony wrote it as Mary Rast.  Polly is the common
nickname for Mary at that time.  The surname Rast may be from a previous
marrige for Mary.  When they married, George was about 52 and Mary about 53.

In 1860 their post office was reported as Talking Rock.

The original settlement of Talking Rock is now called Blaine, and is not on
the railroad line.  The longtime settlement still known by that name is
nearby, where the current town of Talking Rock developed when the railroad
came through.

“Several legendary accounts are given with regard to the naming of Talking
Rock; one is the story of an unusual echo that was supposed to come from a
nearby rock cliff; while another story tells about a rock with which some of
the Cherokees played a trick on one another. The little town is situated on a
creek of the same name. Being on the Old Federal Road, it was one of the
eearliest settlements in this region, and some of the earliest churches and
schools in Pickens were at or near the present site of the town. Talking Rock
is also close to the site of the old Indian village, Sanderstown. One of the
earliest cotton mills in Georgia was started at Talking Rock by William C
Atherton, and flourished until the Civil War when it was destroyed by
Sherman’s raiders. The Talking Rock neighborhood was settled by a number of
Presbyterian families, most of whom came to Pickens County about the time of
the Indian removal. It is located on the old L&N Railroad line.” Today
Talking Rock is a quiet little village off the beaten path along the creek
where Cherokees once farmed. Just a few quaint shops where the conversation is
as interesting as the antiques and collectibles. A tiny Post Office. A couple
of churches on the mountainside and cemeteries with markers telling stories of
a lively past."

In 1870 their post office was reported as Jasper, the county seat of Pickens

“The county seat of Pickens County was named for Sergeant William Jasper, an
American soldier of Revolutionary War fame, who died on Georgia soil. Before
the town was incorporated in 1857, it was a small Long Swamp Valley community
of pioneers. Early businesses included a lumber mill, marble plant, harness
and shoe shop. Geographically, the county was unsuited for large plantations
of the type that made slave labor essential, and in 1860, this area contained
almost no negroes. Thus, at the outbreak of the Civil War, a good many
citizens of the County were opposed to Secession, and the Union flag was
allowed to float from the courthouse at Jasper for some time after Georgia

In 1974, George filed a claim for compensatoin for a mule taken from him
during the war by a Union officer, though George was a loyal subject of the
United States, and never supported the Confederate States.  He lists several
neighbors and kin who supported his claim on these grounds.  One was George R
Mullins, also known from other records and family history to have been a Union
supporter, working with members of his family as guerilla sappers then
railroad guards for the Union.

The master list of these claims was published in 1876, under the title
Southern Loyalists in the Civil War:  The Southern Claims Commiision."

In 1880, George and Mary's locality is given in the census as Town.  This is
referred to in their tax rolls as Town District, and listed in standard
databases under current Townships in the county.  The entry for the state of
birth for Mary's mother appears to be Md, for Maryland.
