    Notes for Mary Frances Williams:
    Mary Frances “Fannie” Williams Jackson Higgins, is buried in the Jackson plots of Walker Chapel Cemetery, Ft. Payne, Alabama as Fannie Higgins indicating date of birth as May 20, 1863, however she was born in 1859 per US Federal Census of Carroll County, GA for 1870 indicated she was 11 years old.
    Further the US Federal Census of DeKalb County, Alabama for 1880 indicated she was 19 years old. The census 1870 states she was employed along with her mother and sisters at the Carroll County Cotton Gin at age 9 years. This following the death of her father in Florida in Feb 1864 as a PVT in the Georgia infantry of the Confederacy.  By the time of the 1880 Census for DeKalb County, Alabama Fannie was married to Millard Fillmore Jackson with two daughters, Julia age 3 and Sarah age 9 months (Nov 1879) Millard later went off to seek his fortune in Texas leaving Fannie and seven children. He was later reported by his mother to have been killed in Texas. As the story goes Fannie had a milk cow she was going to sell in order to ship his body back to Alabama, however his mother told Fannie NOT to sell the cow, that she would need it for the small children and that she would take care of the funeral arrangements in Texas and bury him there. He had, in fact, met and married another lady, Mattie Miller on 15 July, 1892 of Montague County, Texas and his first child of this married was born in 1896. It is said by descendents who remained in Dekalb County, Alabama that Fannie waited the required seven years to have Millard declared dead before marrying Joseph D. Higgins on 30 March 1896 so, Millard left before Maud was born in Jan of 1890. By the 1900 Census for Dekalb Co. Fannie was married to Joseph D. Higgins and living with them were five of Fannies surviving children. Unaccounted for are Julia and Sara. Since Fannie never left the Ft. Payne, Dekalb  County, Area it is logical to assume they are buried in one of the cemeteries in Ft. Payne. Joseph Higgins apparently adored Fannie and though he was only 33 years old at her death, he never remarried. He was buried in the family plot with Fannie at Walker’s Chapel In Ft. Payne, Alabama June 4, 1934.

    Notes for John Robert Cagle”
    It was thought by many in the family that John was born in the 1860’s, However the US Federal Census of Haralson County, GA for 1880 which was taken in April, lists him with his father Augustus and mother Sabra Anne, indicating Jasper Luther as 7 yrs old, Vastia Caroline as 4 years old and John Robert as 6 mos.
    Again the US Federal Census of DeKalb Co. for 1900, again lists him with his mother, sisters and brother, Jasper Luther, who was married by this time to Lucinda Dutton. This census shows him as single and 19 years old. Grandpa was born in a log cabin constructed by his father on the old Benjamin Franklin Cagle (ca) 1819 homestead which still stands along the highway in Haralson Co. Grandpa was a quiet man not known for idle chit-chat. He was about 5’7″ maybe 5’8″ in stocking feet and probably never weighed over 150 lbs. He had jet black hair as a young man and blue eyes that were so light in color that he appeared in black and white pictures, to have no eyes. His nature was rather stiff but, he spoke quietly, so quiet, in fact that he seemed to mumble. He never failed to say grace at meals, yet I never knew him to go to church. He wore an old felt hat, usually pulled down over his forehead to protect his hairless scalp. What he lacked in hair on his head , he made up for with hair under his nose in the form of a big bush mustache. He had the kind of face that Norman Rockwell would have loved to paint. We all loved him but cut him a wide swathe. He kept an old razor strop which I never seen him use but, it was always in plain view and served as a deterrent to would be trouble makers. I don’t think Grandpa liked me. Maybe, he did not like any of the grandkids, well, maybe Helen.
    The rest of us stayed just beyond reach, ready to take flight at any moment. Grandpa had a lame leg and could not run very fast which served as my salvation more than once. The old log cabin originally constructed by Benjamin, Grandpa’s grandfather and where the first three children of Augustus were born is still standing along Highway 100 at the 14 mile marker on the east side of the highway. It current is owned by the Mayor of Tallapoosa and is used by hunters. The walls appear to be about 14 inches thick and the logs are square 14×14. It has a nice stone fireplace and chimney.
    Benjamin and Parthena are buried about a mile from the cabin along the same highway.
    When Grandpa would get angry about something and go stomping off, Grandma would say, “that hard headed old German” so, I thought his mumbling was German, but it just turned out he was mumbling. Grandma said Grandpa always had an eye for the ladies, and wasn’t nearly as quiet when they were about the place, though I never saw any of this.  Could it be, Grandma was just jealous?  Grandpa and Grandma had a disagreement over the youngest daughter which resulted in them not sleeping with each other or speaking to each other for over 20 years. Finally, in their old age they releted and because quite affectionate.
    Grandpa had practically no education though, I think he could read a newspaper or maybe he just wanted us to think he could read. Grandpa was a farmer and part-time railroad worker. He seemed to make anything grow. He always had the best looking flower beds and vegetable garden in town. When Grandpa bought his place, it was in the country but, the town grew up around him. Until shortly before his death, he still had his cows, pigs, chickens, geese and vegetable garden. We moved in on one corner of his property and built a house. However Grandpa retained title to the land. As far as I know, Dad never paid Grandpa anything for the use of the land. This might be why Grandpa did not seem to like Dad much. Grandpa was a hard worker and continued working until shortly before his death. I could probably write a book about Grandpa, yet when I think about him, I don’t think I really knew him and that was to bad.
    Burial for John Cagle was 31 May 1955, City Cemetery, Pawhuska, Osage, Oklahoma.
