Deacon John Caldwell

The Gospel Messenger, Butler, Ga. December, 1883, Vol. 5 No. 12
Submitted by John R. Adams.


Deacon John Caldwell, died of paralysis at his residence in Floyd County, Ga., May 12, 1883; aged 69 years. Brother Caldwell was born and raised in Upson County, Ga., and was baptized about the year 1830, by Elder Creed Caldwell, his uncle. As a Baptist, he was much devoted to the interest of peace, love and unanimity of his brethren, using the office of deacon well, and purchased to himself a good degree, and great boldness in the faith, obeying magistrates and those that ruled over him. Being taught by the grace of God, he lived soberly, righteously and godly in this present world. As a husband, he was cautious, kind and tender, ever willing and anxious to share with his dear companion a portion of all her sorrows and sufferings in this life. Likewise that she should be a participator with him in all the joys and comforts of the same - traveling much together, visiting Associations, Union Meetings, and their monthly meetings, giving evidence that they greatly enjoyed and realized the power and influence of the gospel of Christ. As a father, he was strict, yet tinder and kind - ever teaching, both by word and precept, good morals, industry, economy and honesty. And as a fruit of the Spirit and a seal of his inheritance, God blessed him to witness six out of nine of his beloved children baptized into the faith of the Old School Baptist Church. Then may we write: "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth; yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works do follow them."  O, may the Lord give unto the aged, afflicted and bereft sister, grace sufficient for her day and trial, and implant within her heart the sweet spirit of submission and reconciliation to every dispensation of His will. May his children follow the worthy example of their loving father, remembering that the Lord doeth all things well. Peace be upon them all.  On the 14th of May his remains were conveyed to Rocky Creek Church, where his membership was, and the writer endeavored to comfort all the children of God that mourned, from these words: "He that believeth on the Son, hath everlasting life." John 3:36 Also: "And whosoever livith and believeth in me, shall never die." John 11:26. After which he was calmly conveyed to the tomb, his widow, eight of his children, a goodly number of his brethren and sisters, and many friends, being present to witness the solemn scene.

Rome Tribune-Herald, Saturday, April 16, 1910
A Beautiful Life
One Who Knew and Loved Mrs. Mary Camp, Gives Interesting Sketch of Her Life and Character.
Died at her home near Rome, Georgia, on the morning of April 2, Mrs. Mary Camp, wife of Mr. James H. Camp, at the ripe old age of seventy- five years, lacking only a few days. Her maiden nane was Beatty. She was born in Walton county, Georgia, April 15, 1935[sic], lost her mother in early childhood, but was fortunate in securing a splendid woman for a step-mother, and was ever afterwards a staunch advocate of the many virtues and goodness of step- motherhood. She was soundly converted and joined the Methodist church early in life, and ever remained a consistent and most beautiful Christian to the end. She was married to Mr. Jas. H. Camp in 1855 and ever stood by him in God-like love and loyalty, faithful in every detail and duty to the last. Seven children were born to them, three of whom died in infancy or early childhood, and preceded her to the better land.  Reared in ante-bellum days, under the old regime, she belonged to the old school of an ideal womanhood (that now seems so painfully passing away). She was wont and content to remain in her God-ordained realm and sphere, and be the uncrowned queen of her own home, ever administering to the happiness of her family and friends, and shaping the life and destiny of her dear ones. She was the very embodiment of Christian patience sunshine and forbearance, full of compassion and forgiveness, kind and gentle to all, meek and humble, as pure as the angels and as modest as a flower. As well-rounded and symmetrical woman, in life and character, she had no superiors but few equals.  All during the four years of the Civil war, while her husband like a gallant brave, was at the front facing shot and shell and spilling his life's blood for his country's cause, she stood steadfast at the home and helm, with other noble sisters of the Confederacy, and guided the steed that stirred the soil that fed and clothed Lee's army. It was she and the noble women of her kind that inspired the heroic boys in gray to go forth, even with all the odds against them, and contend for the righteous cause of their country, against the invading armies of the enemy, with matchless bravery and courage, that made the richest histor[sic] the world has ever known. She was afflicted and almost bedridden for more than a year before her death, with a malady incurable at her age. All that could be done for her, by the aid of the best physicians and tender nurses. Indeed it was marvelously beautiful to observe the tender devotion, care and attention given her by her daughter, aided a good portion of the time by the gentle touch and tender hands of noble- hearted Christian friends. Indeed there never was more loyal, tender and beautiful devotion.  The deceased is survived by her husband, Mr. James H. Camp, her two sons, Mesrs. J.E. and Albert H. Camp, Mrs. Anna Hickman, all of Floyd county, and Mrs. W.F. Freeman, of Lexington, Ky., together with fifteen grand-children and two great-grandchildren, all of whom loved her devotedly and mourn her loss. She bore her suffering with great Christian fortitude, and an abiding faith in her own deep-seated conversion, to the last; spoke beautifully of it several times, while on her death bed, and often declared herself ready for the Master's Call. All during her own suffering she never faltered nor even waned in her love and devotion to her husband; often inquired where he was when out of her sight, and requested others to sit with him and cheer his lonely hours. Her warm words of sympathy and comfort to the writer in dark days of his own sorrow, coupled with his personal knowledge of her beautiful life, fully warrant the assertion that, "Language can weave no chaplet her brow was not worth to wear."  She marched with conscious step and unfaltering faith to the very last line, and as she saw the pearly gates swing ajar and heard the shout of welcome from the other side, while all the ransomed, redeemed of Heaven sang "Harvest Home", she caught the inspiration of the music and attempted to sing herself, with waning breath and feeble voice, as she crossed the last divide, "Palms of Victory; Crowns of Glory, I shall wear."  The burial services were conducted at the country home of Mr. J.H.Camp, by Drs. Jarrell and Nunnally. Both made appropriate and beautiful talks, but the remarks of Dr. G.A. Nunnally, a life-long friend, were beautiful indeed. He had known the deceased for more than fifty years, and it was touching and pathetic to hear that Godly man stand at her bier and extol her many virtues as he had seen and known her for more than half an hundred years. The songs were beautiful and appropriate, indeed, one of which, "There is rest for the weary," was by request of the deceased, during he last sickness. The abundant and beautiful floral offerings bore ample testimony of how she was loved and esteemed by many.  We are glad it was our fortune to have known her,and would love to emulate her beautiful life, which we commend to her weeping husband, children and friends, and bid them understand that she is not dead, only transplanted from this life of sorrow and care to to a home beyond the stars, where all is love and song and is a clime where Spring, with fadeless beauty, forever blooms.

Miss Daisy Cheney

Promising Girl Yields to Death Miss Daisy Cheney Passes Away After Short Illness; Funeral Today at 10.
Submitted by Fran Weatherby

The death of Miss Daisy Cheney, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin D. Cheney, occurred Friday morning at 7 o'clock at the home of her parents on First Avenue. The death was an unusually sad one. Just a week ago she came home from Athens, where she had been attending the State Normal School. She was [illegible] and an operation was found necessary, Yet in spite of all the best medical attention and the nursing of fond parents could accomplish, she failed to rally, and her spirit took its flight. Though only 17 years of age, she had attracted a large number of friends by her magnetic personality and many accomplishments. This was attested, not only by those in Rome, but by the many messages of condolence received on yesterday from her school friends in Athens. Even at so early an age, evidences of unusual intellectuality had already developed themselves giving promise of many bright hopes of future accomplishment. She is survived by her mother and father, one sister, Miss Louise, and one brother, Jeanne. Her only other relative in Rome is a cousin, Mrs. Sproull Fouche. Many beautiful floral offerings betoken the esteem in which she was held by her friends, and the close affection of those nearest and dearest. The funeral will occur at 10 o'clock this morning from the residence, the services being conducted by the Rev. Geo. F. Cuthrell, pastor of he Christian church, and Dr. R.B. Headden. The following are the pallbearers: Walter S. Cothran, H.A. Dean, M.B. McWilliams, Sproull Fouche, A.D. Hull and E.B. Barclay. The interment will be in Myrtle Hill cemetery.

Capt F M Coulter

The River Veteran, Dies at His Post of Duty
Captain F.M. Coulter is dead.
Submitted by Margaret P St Jean

He was taken sick Saturday afternoon [24 March 1894] shortly after 8 o’clock, while at his post in the pilot house of the steamer Clifford B. Seay, just two miles below Centre. He at once rang for assistance and was carried from the pilot house in a very weak condition. On reaching the saloon he was approached by Captain Kirkpatrick. As the latter neared him, Mr. Coulter exclaimed, “Oh! Mr. Kirk, I am so sick.”  He reeled and would have fallen had not Mr. Kirkpatrick caught him. He was carried to the cabin, where many fruitless efforts were made to alleviate his suffering. On reaching Centre two physicians were called in, but their skill availed nothing. When the boat left Centre one of them staid on board to attend the Captain. While making the landing at Howe’s cross roads at 10:15 o’clock p.m. death came to the relief of this man, who has borne more than his share of the burdens of this life with such an humble spirit and such unflinching fortitude. The cause of his death was acute indigestion, with which he had of late had several attacks. His remains reached the city at 5 o’clock Sunday morning and Captain Simpson was detailed to go to the Captain’s residence on Fourth avenue and break the sad news to his wife and children. This was not the first time he has gone to this family as the bearer of bad news. This time he was met at the door by Mrs. Coulter, who exclaimed: “Tell it! Tell it quick, Captain. I know something is wrong. I have been feeling it over since last night. His remains were brought to the house and prepared for burial. Captain Coulter’s death is a loss to every citizen of Rome. He was the friend of every one. As a reliable, steady, honest, hardworking man, he was known and loved. He moved here from Pittsburg, Penn., 35 years ago, and has been a river man since his arrival. For the past twelve years he has been employed by Capt. J.J. Seay, president of the White Star Line. Capt. Seay says he was a mechanic of rare sill, having built every boat that ever plied the Coosa except two. He had the reputation among steamboat inspectors of knowing the art of building boats of heaviest tonnage with least draught. Capt. Seay says another man like him cannot be found. Capt. Coulter was a man who always did his duty, and was always at his post, no matter how great the danger. He leaves a wife and six children to mourn his death.  The funeral services took place yesterday [Monday 26 March 1894] afternoon at 3:30 o’clock, from St. Peter’s church. The remains were interred in the family lot in Myrtle Hill Cemetery. The following gentlemen acted as pall bearers: John J. Seay, John T. Warlock, George Magruder, W. M. Towers, S. P. Sanford and Capt. Oliver Stillwell.
