Letter from James Fleming to Malinda (Chance) Fleming, April 4, 1860, in the possession of Mrs. Marie (Derry) DeLamar of Albany, Georgia:

April the 4th 1860
Dear Mother:
I have received your letter a few weeks ago but have neglected to write back to you. I will now write you a few lines to let you know that we are all well as usual at this time and little Ferdinand is as good and pretty as ever. There is nothing now [???] about [???] as I know of people are generally healthy. I believe though the old man Pollock and his wife are both dead. I suppose I did not hear what was the matter with them and one of Thomas P[???]'s little girls is dead also. We have had a cold backward spring so far not withstanding we have got a fine garden. Mary Ann can get greens now every day. We have got a quantity of collard and cabbage plants. We did not plant any thing in the garden but what we got a good stand of. I shall set about the other half of the garden when it rains again. I mean the lower half. Pulaski and Martha paid a visit last week before on their way to and from David Kellims at Hawkinsville. Mrs. Key also came to see us two or three weeks ago so nothing more at present. Only remain yours, James Fleming
(P.S.) We received a letter from Aunt Nancy Leonard of North Carolina. She requested us to give her love to you. I told you that Mr. Pollock and wife were dead. I thought at the time I heard it it was Morris Pollock but it was the old man Pollock of Houston, a brother to Morris.


From the Hawkinsville Dispatch, Hawkinsville, GA, Vol. 18, #35, Thursday Morning, 28 Aug 1884:
Mr. Morris Pollock died at the home of his son-in-law Mr. William Culpepper, in Wilcox County, on Wednesday, August 20, 1884, aged eighty-four years and three weeks. The remains were buried at the old family burial ground on the place of Mr. D. H. Hendley in Pulaski County, on the 21st inst. Mr. Pollock was one of the two oldest men in Pulaski county. He was one of the original settlers of Houston County, and moved to this county about thirty-five years ago. He was the father of our present Tax Collector, Mr. E. A. Pollock, and also of Mrs. D. G. McCormick and Mrs. William Culpepper. He was never connected with any church by membership, but in faith was a staunch Primitive Baptist.

Beaver Creek Baptist Church had burned to the ground one spring Sunday in 1936, while G. Wiley Hunt was preaching. Andrew Chapel offered their Baptist friends an opportunity to worship in their building while they got back on their feet. Not long after that, Beaver Creek built a church on Sandefur Road.

To the north of Kathleen stood Beaver Creek Church, the Primitive Baptist Church, which was during the Civil War, the center of helpful activities looking to the comfort and welfare of the soldiers.

I found out about P. D. Pollock while browsing the library catalogs for the family name. The following book turned up and I was curious enough to look him up in several biography reference books, like who's who and that sort. I found one entry which listed him as the grandson of Morris, but I never trusted this information.

Anyway, though you might like to know about this book. I borrowed it an there is little information on his early life and family, but it may be something you'd like to see.
