NOTE: [1714] Pages 255, 265, 372, 919, 920
From pages 919, 920:
James Hightower was living in Upson County prior to its organization in 1824, as his name is mentioned as foreman of its first grand jury, and as one of its first road commissioners. He owned many slaves and large tracts of land in the eastern part of the county, also owning and operating on Tobler Creek, one of the first grist and flour mills in this section. Here he reared a large family, though few of his descendents are living in Upson County today.

That James Hightower was one of Upson's pioneer Methodists is shown by the fact that in a deed, recorded in 1829, he is mentioned as one of the trustees purchasing land for the Methodist Society of Upson County, and, in 1837, is mentioned in an Act of the General Assembly, as one of the incorporators of Upson Camp Ground.
NOTE: [1719] The following is a true copy of the family record in the Bible of James Hightower (1777-1851, made from photostats of the original pages. The Bible is owned by Mrs. G. Pope Huguley, of Atlanta, Ga. Following the record, I have added a few notes to explain parts of the record which would not be clearly
understood by one having only the Bible record as written.


James Hightower was born January 11th, 1777.
Betsey Leggett was born July the 7th 1783.
Charnal Hightower was born October the 7th 1800
Polly Campbell Hightower was born Oct. 14th 1803.
James Mellard Hightower was born Oct. 13th 1805.
John Judge Hightower was born May the 9th 1808.
Milley Arnold Hightower was born Nov. 25th 1811.
Daniel Hightower was born Feb. 14th 1814.
Betsey Hightower was born July 16th 1816.
David Clements Hightower was born Nov. 18th 1818.
Harriett Ann Hightower was born March, 18th 1821.
The infant that died was born Sept 22, 1823.
Albinah Caroline Hightower was born August 1st A D 1826.
Elizabeth C. Hightower was born June 27th 1822 (*).
James M. Hightower was born March 1 1824 (*).


James Hightower and Betsey Leggett were married March 28th 1799.


Thomas Hightower Sr departed this life Sept 22nd, 1803.
James Leggett Jr. departed this life Nov. 25th, 1807.
James Leggett Senr. departed this life Oct. 2nd 1808.
Charnal Hightower Departed this life Oct 7th, 1824.
Polley C. Cowles Departed this life Sept 15th 1824.
David C Hightower departed this life August 8th day, 1839.
Charlotte Hightower wife of John J. Hightower departed this life A D 1841.
John J Hightower departed this life A D 1843.
Harriet A. Pitts departed this life June 4th A D 1847.
Caroline Hightower wife of James M. Hightower departed this life 24th May A D 1847.
Mary E. Evans daughter of James M. Hightower departed this life July A D 1847.
Dr. S. P. Ivey departed this life Sept 25th 1852.
James Hightower departed this life March the 25th A D 1851.
Daniel Hightower departed this life Augst the 28th A. D. 1853.
Albina C. Dozier departed this life October the 16th A D 1857.

The above record is copied as nearly like the original as can be done with a typewriter, with punctuation, spelling and capitalization exact.

(*) NOTES: Elizabeth C. and James M. Hightower, whose births are entered after that of Albinah, who was born earlier, were the children of Charnal, who died Oct. 7, 1824. Their mother remarried about 1827 and the Hightower grandparent took the children and reared them.

Dr. S. P. Ivey was the first husband of Albinah Caroline. She later married John Dozier. The spelling "Mellard" in entry of James Mellard Hightower is probably an error, as the family and records always used the name "Millard" when the middle name was used.

Entries in this Bible up to 1819 are all entered in very fine script by the same hand--probably done soon after purchase of the book by an expert penman. Late entries are in different handwriting, varying with the different times.

Isaac Daniel Inmon was born January 9 1851 in Weakley Co, Tn, the son of Isaac and Nancy H. Faught Inmon. They family moved to Ozark, Mo in Christian Co before 1855 and on to Texas in 1865, settling in Pilot Point when he was about 14 years old. The article below was taken from the book "Fort Worth and the Texas Northwest"
Isaac Daniel Inmon. Achievements of a practical and substantial nature are credited to Isaac Daniel Inmon of Denton County, and perhaps the best of all has been the results of his work as a farm and ranch developer at his present attractive place eleven miles northwest of Krum.
Mr. Inmon was born in Giles County, Tn (Weakly Co) a son of Isaac Inmon, who at the close of the Civil war accompanied the family to Denton County, Tx, and followed his trade as a carpenter at Pilot Point until his death in 1873. The Inmons have been prominent and well known in this section of Texas for more than half a century. A brother of Isaac D. Inmon is Joseph M. Inmon of Denton, whose career is also sketched in this publication.
Isaac Daniel Inmon was a child when his parents moved to southwestern Missouri and located at the town of Ozark in Christian County. He acquired his early education there and was still only fourteen years of age when the family came to Texas. His people were not wealthy, and as soon as possible it devolved upon him to do for himself and he has absorbed most of his practical education without the aid of schools.
His brother and brother-in-law were blacksmiths at Pilot Point, and Isaac D. went to work in their shop at the age of fifteen and stayed there until he finished his trade. His father also did his carpenter work in the same shop. Mechanical ability is practically native to the Inmon family. After learning his trade ID Inmon went to Callahan County, Tx and conducted a shop of his own for four years. He located there just before Christmas in 1889, and remained there four years. His next home was at Bloomfield in Cooke County, where he conducted a shop two years, and then bought a farm two miles west of the village. For two years he worked at his shop on the farm, and then gave his time and energies completely to the far.
In November, 1913, Mr. Inmon moved to his present locality in Denton County, in the vicinity of Slidel. The land he bought was all pasture, and he and his family lived in tents until his first home could be built. The farm is a part of the Judge JA Carroll estate on the William Roebuck Survey. His residence and his barn mark some of the most generous and substantial improvements of the community. Two deep wells provide a copious supply of water for domestic and stock purposes. He has also constructed several miles of wire fencing and has brought almost three hundred acres under cultivation, chiefly to grain. His cattle are high grade Shorthorns, and he keeps a flock of Merino sheep partly to clean out the weeds from his pasture and also for the profit of their wool clip. Mr Inmon has been working for himself more than half a century, and his material accumulations are represented by a ranch of more than eight hundred acres, regarded as one of the most desirable stock and general farms in Denton County.
While living in Cooke County he served as trustee of the Breedlove School District, where his children were chiefly educated. He has no ambition in a political way. He supported the democratic party candidates for many years, casting his first vote for Horace Greeley in 1872 and the last for Grover Cleveland, but since then his allegiance has been with the Socialist party.
In the Bloomfield neighborhood of Cooke County, Mr. Inmon on January 16, 1879 married Miss Malinda Montgomery. Her father, Jeff C. Montgomery, came from Missouri to Texas and married Ann Jones, daughter of Reason Jones, one of the earliest settlers in the Bloomfield locality, and a man of exceptional prominence, whose lifework has been sketched elsewhere. Jeff Montgomery served as a Confederate soldier, and after the war located near Bloomfield, on part of the Jones headright, where he lived out his life. He was the father of three sons and four daughters: Mrs Inmon, who was born on the Jones headright in 1857; Fannie, wife of Isom Mikiel, living in Cooke County; Robert Montgomery, of Durant, Oklahoma; Edward, of Wichita Falls; Alonzo, a farmer in the Breedlove Community; Lela, who died as Mrs. Earl Sipes; and Ada, wife of Emerson Parsons, living at Lois in Cooke County.
In their declining years Mr and Mrs Inmon have around and near them both children and grandchildren. Otis, their oldest child, a farmer near the homestead, married Pheobe Bates and has a daughter, Lorene. Homer, also on the home farm, married Eva Walker, and their children are Ray, Ethel and Earnest. The next in age is Miss Ethel, at home. James C. Inmon, a farmer in the home community, married Jessie South and has a son, JC, Jr; Earl, the youngest, also active on the home ranch, married Myrtle Flowers and has a daughter, Nellie.

*William Dowdy was born circa 1800 in SC, the son of Robert Dowdy. He had moved to Hall Co (later Monroe Co), Ga by 1821 where he received a land grant. He married Margaret Myers/Myres on March 27, 1823 in Hall/Monroe Co. The family had moved to Walker Co. Al by 1834 and William received a land grant there , Section 29, Township 13, Range 5 on January 15, 1836. He was on the Walker Co, Al tax roll for 1840 and on the 1850 census for that county. Two of his children had married by 1850 and William and his family, including his married children and their families, along with their in-laws decided to head for Texas and was in Cherokee Co in 1851 at the Mt. Beaulah community. His daughter, Nancy E., met and married Wm. Flavious McCarty in December of 1852 in Anderson Co, adjacent to Cherokee Co. By 1859, William Dowdy had settled in the Ratcliff area in Houston Co and on the 1860 Census there. He and Margaret were charter members of the Antioch Primitive Baptist Church. William paid taxes in 1866 that were levied in 1862 in Houston Co and that is the last record that I have of him. He was not on the 1870 Census, so I am assuming he died before then.

Dr. Robert Montgomery

Dr Robert Montgomery's life was ended after about ten short years in Parker but he left his mark in the history of Parker County and many offspring.

Montgomery was born in 1797 in North Carolina, believed to be the son of John M. Montgomerie (of Ireland) and his Scottish wife whose maiden name was Moore.

Robert lived near Giles County, Tn in the 1820's. With his first wife he had one son and three daughters. The son, William Carroll, came to Texas in 1859 and was the first County Treasurer of Childress County.

Robert married Malinda Duff in Crawford County, Mo in 1832. Eight children were born to this couple including the oldest, Josephus Newton, who came to Parker County in 1855 and Jefferson Carroll who went to Cooke County.

Robert Montgomery represented Pulaski and Wright Counties in the Missouri legislature from 1838-1848, and served as a doctor from Missouri to Texas, relying principally on such medical guides as Gunn's Domestic Medicine or Poor Man's friend, In the Hours of Affliction, and pain and sickness. (1835)

Eventually, he settled in the Carter Community of Parker Co, purchasing land joining Newton and Drucella (Vardy) Canafax with their three small children. Newton returned from the Civil War very ill and died in 1864.

Robert married the young widow in June of 1865. He was 68, and she, 26. Three children, Cynthia, Lee Davis, and Galena were born in Parker County.

Dr. Montgomery was the doctor for the Carter Community, farmed his own land, raised cattle and horses, and was one of the founders of the second Methodist Church in Parker County at Cartersville.

On his wife's 32nd birthday, March 4 1871, Robert was murdered at the front gate to his home near Carter by a man who he thought stole the beautiful black horse he had recently purchased from General John Magruder. A large reward was offered, and in 1877 Texas Rangers John Armstrong and Diggs killed the man when he resisted arrest in Wilson county, Tx. Robert is buried in the Canafax Cemetery at Carter with Newton Canafax and son, John.

Drucella, saddened by losing another husband so soon and with six small children to care for, stayed in Parker County until 1886 when she moved her family to Eastland County. It was there on September 9, 1927, that she died at the age of 88 and is buried in the Cross Plains Cemetery along with several of her children. By Mary Montgomery McClurg (g-g granddaughter)

So far as records show presently, John M Montgomery was born in Ireland and married a Miss Moore from Scotland. They apparently came to America soon after marrying, arriving in North Carolina (assumed) as all their children were born there. Their children were John, William, Robert W., Jefferson, Jesse and Easter Ann. I am descended from both William and Robert W. as Robert W.'s son, Jefferson C. , married William's granddaughter, Mary Angeline Jones. Robert W. and William were active in Missouri politics. Robert came to Texas and William went to California, but died before he could move his family. Most of Robert's family came to Texas, settling in Parker and Wise Co's with the exception of Jefferson C, who married Mary Angeline in Cooke Co. Easter Ann married GW Jones and they came to Kaufman Co. Tx. John came to Parker Co along with Robert and most of his descendents settled there.

Tommie Carson was born east of Valley View, Tx in Cooke Co, the son of Thomas Archival and Eva Lou Fryer Carson and has lived in the same general area all his life. Below is an excert taken from the book, THE FIRST 100 YEARS IN COOKE COUNTY that gives a brief history of Valley View.

Mr and Mrs LW Lee were the first citizens of the Valley View community, ten miles south of Gainesville. They were childhood sweethearts and schoolmates and were married November 1, 1859, at Prairie Home, Missouri. Ten years later they came to Sherman. Then on February 1, 1870, they drove their ox team to the double log cabin on land that was later the CA Myers farm, at Valley View.
Mrs Lee, in describing the scene, said, "There was not even a path, and grass was as high as a man's head. Mr Lee said we were coming to the frontier. I remarked that it looked very much like the back tier to neighbors, no schools, no churches, no sustenance for soul or body, a veritable wilderness." But the Lees were not long alone. On April 6, 1870, five other families, who were neighbors in Missouri, came to settle on Spring Creek. They were AD Jones, Gilbert French, Richard McCubbin, Andrew Hill and Joseph Reavis and families.
And soon thereafter, R Obuch and family, who had traveled with the Lees from Missouri to Sherman, decided to cast their lot with their old friends in southern Cooke County.
Some of the men in the neighborhood decided to drive a herd of cattle to Missouri for the profit involved. In July, 1870, while the men were away, reports were circulated that Indians were in North Texas killing people and stealing horses.
The Valley View settlers decided to go to the Cross Timbers for protection, but once there, Mrs. Lee longed to return home. She suggested that the men go to Pilot Point for guns and ammunition, the families return to their homes, and guards be placed on duty at night to watch for Indians. This suggestion was followed, and the Indians never came.
In those days it was necessary to go to Gainesville for provisions, mail and other necessities, and sometimes there were long delays when Elm Creek was on a rise since there were no bridges.
Mr. Lee suggested starting a town, and Mrs Lee provided the name Valley View. Mr Lee laid out the townsite early in 1872. Every man was to be given a lot who would build a house and paint it white. Eleven families built houses on whole blocks, and seven on individual lots.
First efforts to obtain a post office were unavailing because of the poor financial condition of the Post Office Department in Reconsturction days, but when Mr Lee volunteered to carry the mail without remuneration, and Richard McCubbin similarly agreed to serve as postmaster, the order went through and the post office was established, March 26, 1872, the date recognized as the beginning of the town.
Mr Lee and Lester Jarvis operated the first store in the loft of a log cabin at the Lee home, reached by a ladder. Mr Lee also built a log blacksmith shop with dirt floor, and there William Johnson taught the first school in 1873. EW Obuch, who lived practically all his life in Valley View, passing away in 1938, was a member of the first school class.
Tommie's Dad, Thomas Archival Carson, migrated to Texas from Williams County, Ohio in 1878, coming in at Sherman. Along with Philo Boardman, he soon came to the Valley View area and settled there, buying the first 100 acres in 1880, then 60 more in 1883. He married Eva Lou Fryer Pilkiton Dobson in 1906 and lived in the Valley View area until he died in 1934.
Tommie married Minnie Leona Tidwell in 1928 and they had 4 children, TJ, Ray, Dee, and Larry.

Simeon Dee Tidwell was born in Lamar Co. near Honeygrove, Tx on August 20, 1873, the son of Francis Marion and Nannie B Jennings Tidwell. His mother died when he was 8 years old and his father married a Jerusha___? about 1882/83. He dropped the name of Simeon at an early age because his classmates at school would call him "Simeon Suck Egg". His father moved his family, including his grandfather, to the Bolivar/Sanger area before 1891, where his grandfather died. Dee met and married Henrietta "Nettie" Sartin in 1893 whose father, Jesse Sartin, ran a hotel in Bolivar. Dee and Nettie had 6 children- Jesse, Roy, George, Minnie, and twins, AJ and Hattie Mae. Jesse died as an infant and Roy died at age 14, having been kicked in the abdomen by a horse. Dee worked at Curtsingers Store in Bolivar and farmed land Nettie had inherited from her mother. They were members of the church of Christ and Dee and Nettie gave the land to build a church building in Bolivar in 1911. The building is still standing today although it has not been used for several years. Nettie became ill with what doctors said was TB of the bone. The family took her to Tioga and Marlin for treatments with mineral baths that seemed to relieve her somewhat. They did not have a car at that time and a neighbor who had one would take her in his car and go back for her. Neverless, Nettie died in 1914 at the young age of 37. Dee could cook as well as anyone and on the first Thanksgiving Day after Nettie died, he cooked dinner and invited Nettie's family. In 1917 Dee married Ida White Butler, a widow with 2 sons. They lived around Bolivar until 1923, then moved east of Valley View , then on to Davidson, OK in 1928 where he farmed and ran a dairy. He also worked at Tipton Children's Home. Dee died October 32, 1957 in Davidson.

Thomas Archival Carson was born in Pennsylvania, the son of William and Ann Jane Alcorn Carson, on December 11, 1850. As a youth he lived in Williams Co, Ohio and came to Texas in 1878. Below is an article taken from the 1983 edition of the Texas Family Heritage.
Cooke County
Carson's Corner Farm
three miles south of Valley View
Founder: Thomas A. Carson of Pennsylvania
1983 owners: Edward Floyd & Regina Carson, Valley View

Born in Pennsylvania in 1850, Thomas Carson spent most of his youth in Williams County, Ohio, near Montpelier, and later went to northern Michigan to try his luck at being a lumberjack in a pine forest. There, he met Philo Boardman with whom he came to Texas, arriving in Sherman in 1878. In November 1878, Philo Boardman purchased 100 acres of the Edward Bradley Survey, and at first the young TA Carson lived with Mr and Mrs Boardman. The following year, Carson and Enoch Boardman, Philo's son, went to Rochester, Minnesota, and bought a sod plow to turn the tough prairie sod. Together, they drove a team of mules and a wagon with their precious plow from Minnesota to Cooke County, Texas. When this plow was pulled by oxen, it did not successfully turn the prairie sod. A trip to Jefferson, Texas, produced a plow that turned the tough soil, but TA Carson never forgot his disappointment over the plow that he and Enoch Boardman hauled all the way from Minnesota to Texas.
After living with the Boardman's for two years, Thomas Carson bought 100 acres of the Edward Bradley Survey next to Boardman's farm and added 60 more acres in 1883. The present family home, built in 1965, now stands on part of the last 60 acres purchased. He remained a bachelor until 1906 when he married Eva Lou (Fryer) (Pilkiton) Dobson, a widow and divorcee with three children. All of them went to live with Thomas on the farm where they helped him raise cotton, wheat, oats and beef cattle. Eva and Thomas had five children of their own: William Thomas, Pauline, Ernest L., and the twins, Johnny Lloyd and Edward Floyd. The elder Carson built a new home for his family in 1918. The Carsons donated on acre to the consturction of the new school at Elm Grove in 1923, and over the years, the property lines were moved back five times to make way for what is now part of Interstate 35.
Thomas Carson died in 1931, and the operation of the farm was attended to by various family members. Lloyd ran the farm until 1938, when his sister, Pauline and her husband, Jack Hollingsworth, took over. In 1941, Lloyd and his wife, Bethel, took over the farm again until 1946 when they moved to Fort Worth. It was at that time that Edward Floyd (Kit) returned from World War 11 to assume charge of the farm and to take care of his mother. In 1959, after his mother died, Kit bought his brothers' and sisters' interests in the farm and operates it today with his wife, Regina (Mitchell).
A 1939 graduate of Texas A&M University, Kit taught vocational agriculture in Southmayd in Grayson County until he joined the armed force in 1943. In 1956, EF Carson won the Zone 4 Outstanding Conservation Farmer Award for the Upper Elm-Red Soil Conservation District. He married Regina Mitchell in 1959. A graduate of Texas Women's University, Regina taught dance and physical education at TWU, Boston University and Cooke County College. Presently, she teaches at Gainesville State School, a Texas Youth Commission Facility. The Carsons have three children: Evalyn Dean, Mitchell Edward and Jane Grace. Since he has had charge of the farm, Kit has added to the original tract. One hundred and thirty-three acres can be traced back to the original tract of land purchased by the founder. The remaining 254 have been added through the years. The Carsons still grow wheat, milo, oats, hay and beef cattle.
Before his marriage to Eva Fryer Dobson, he lived occasionally with his brother, John Henry Carson in the Vernon area in west Texas. He bought a section of land, 640 acres, on Beaver Creek south of Vernon after his mother died in 1896. But he let it go back sometime after 1900 and returned to the Valley View area. Tom A and Eva were married by a Presbyterian minister--they met him on the road and they were married in their buggy. They gave an acre of land to put the new Elm Grove School on in 1924. He farmed until his arthritis became so bad he couldn't. His son, Tommie, helped to support the family by odd jobs, staying out of school part of the time to do so. He died in 1931.

William Carson (possibly named John William or William John) was born in Ireland circa 1815-20, married Ann Jane Alcorn from Scotland and sailed for America in the early 1840's, docking at Philadelphia, Pn. Below is a statement written by a granddaughter, Alta Mae Carson May in the 1970's.
"Grandfather and Grandmother Carson came from Ireland soon after they were married and landed in Philadelphia where my father John Henry Carson was born. They moved to Williams Co, Ohio and bought a farm. 3 more sons were born to them, Thomas Archable, William and Charley (their middle name unknown). Grandfather got the gold fever and went to California to dig for gold he and his pardner took up a mine but grandfather was stricken with summer dysentery and died he never received any benifit from the mine."

Francis Marion Tidwell, twin son of Simeon Starnes Tidwell, was born July 15, 1853 in Blount Co. Alabama. The family was in Mississippi on the 1860 and 1870 Census in now Alcorn Co around the town of Cointh not too far from the Shiloh Battlefield of Civil War fame. They moved to Texas, settling in Grayson Co. near Paris by 1872 where he married Nannie B. Jennings, the daughter of A. Jackson Jennings and Nancy Gaines Brown. Her father was an Indian Agent at Tahlaqua, OK and Nannie had come to Paris to teach school. They had one child, a son, Simeon Dee, born in 1873. Nannie was only 29 when she died in 1881 after less than 10 years of marriage. Francis Marion married again to Jerusha Robinson by mid 1880's and they had 7 children: Bill, Clifford, Lena, Ada, Stanley, Grace and Harry. The family had moved to the Sanger/Bolivar area by 1891 when Simeon Starnes, Francis' father died. The turn of the century found him in the Wichita Falls, Tx area where he stayed until his death in 1933. I have no information regarding the death of Jeursha, but they are bothe buried in Rosement Cemetary, Wichita Falls.

According to a family source Francis was very bitter towards the Yankee's as their soldiers would steal food from them.

Stanley, son of Francis and Jerusha, was shot by a man over a girl. It was nearly dark and someone saw a man running away, but no one was charged with the killing.

FROM : Bunny Dowdy Bake
Bristow, Ok

Three Dowdy brothers came from England and landed in Cn. One brother stayed in the north and two brothers went soutn-into Kentucky and Tennessee.
They brought an iron kettle with them, supposedly for cooking purposes as the size is about right. This kettle, or pot, has been handed down and is now owned by Ruby Dowdy Holloway who lives in Bristow, Ok. One can look at the kettle and believe how old it is.
The two brothers lived in Tennessee together until the mosquitoes became so bad--one story is they clogged up the horses' noses until one died from not being able to breath,--John Dowdy decided it was time to get away from there so he took his family and they moved to Arkansas, then on to Missouri. Nothing, as far as we know, was ever heard from the other brother after they left Tn. It is possible that neither brother could read nor write, as far as is known, they were all farmers and this wasn't unusual for that day and time.
This summer I received a telephone call from a man named Don Dowdy who lives in Lawton. His ancestors are from the northern region and we feel that maybe he is a descendant of the brother who stayed in the north, but have not been able to confirm this. However, a member of his family is working on their background and if we find a connection each of us have promised to contact the other.

Leonard Dowdy, Ratcliff, Tx has also heard of the above story all his life, except about the kettle.
