Notes

  • "I found the promise that our great-grandfather signed saying he wouldnot fight anymore after the siege of Vicksburg - however he did fightuntil the end of the war, felt so guilty that he named his firstbornson after the general he lied to - General Buell - and the name hascontinued down through the family - can you imagine!  A CSA mountedinfantryman naming a firstborn son after a Yankee General!"

    Annie died in 1906.  A descendant family researcher gives somebackground from family information.

    -----------------------
    Buell Stark was working as a cashier in the Bank of Rockmart at thetime of Annie's death and was in the process of taking the bank intothe federal system.  He was also, at one time, the president of theRockmart Businessman's Association and involved in developing the landaround Van Wert where the York family lived (at that time).

    So, if Annie died in Dalton, then it was at the home of her mother.At that time, Buell's younger brother Pryor owned the Stark farm andhome.  However, Buell was forced to take it over, pay off Pryor'sdebts (Pryor had a problem with the bottle and was an inept manager),and move my grandmother down to the family home at Stark Springs inorder to save the farm.  He paid off all the debts; went to work atthe Bank of Dalton, taking them into the federal system, and all thetime practiced law in his spare time while farming and politicing as amember of the Masons and Knights of Pythias, holding state office inboth.

    He was a turn-of-the-century entrepeneur and politiician while servingon local boards, then as a state representative, then a state senator. My grandmother raised Annie's children before she had two sons of herown, James Ferdinand Stark b. 1919 and Arnold Wood (changed to GeorgeArnold in 1942) Stark b. 1920.
