     He and Mary Ann Barnett The next son of WILLIAM HAMPTON'S was also grabbed by the war. Son GEORGE DALLAS, born April 16, 1846 had gone to Lake Butler, Florida, shortly after his sixteenth birthday and enlisted. They placed him in Company I of the 1st Florida Reserves... This lad put in three hard years of war duty. And it would be indeed interesting to know where its fortunes took him, for some say that it was a full six months after the war's grinding end before his mother saw him coming back home; he was barefooted...his pants worn off to his knees!

Near Middleburg, Florida, on November 22, 1865, GEORGE DALLAS DOWLING married Mary Ann Barnett. (She was a daughter of Clarissa Townsend and Reverend Thomas Robinson Barnett, a pioneer Methodist minister of Florida. Though both her parents were South Carolinians Mary was born in Madison County, Florida, August 4, 1846. Mrs. Dowling died July 10, 1930, and was buried beside GEORGE DALLAS at Live Oak's City Cemetery; he had died February 6, 1905.) The children and grandchildren of this couple are shown on Chart 531 of A Dowling Family of the South. Also named on that Chart is Mary Ann's daughter-in-law, Benlah Barnet, who worked so tirelessly for thirty years to gather much of this material.

Mrs. Benlah Dowling's husband, ROBERT LEE DOWLING, SR., (who learned “logging" from GEORGE DALLAS) and his uncle THOMAS DOWLING will always be remembered because of the community named Dowling Park, Florida. They had ceased competing with each other in the Live Oak, Florida, sawmill business in 1908 and formed a combine with Richard W. Sears of Sears, Roebuck & Company and a Mr. Roach so that a tremendous sawmill could be installed in a huge, virgin stand of pine lying west of that timber center. This mill-site on the banks of the beautiful Suwannee River is now shown on Florida maps as Dowling Park.2

     Thomas Dowling was born on 25 September 1851 at near the Swift Creek Cemetery, White Springs, Hamilton, Florida, United States.1 He married Laura Ann Weeks on 14 May 1876 at Clay, Florida, United States.1 Thomas Dowling died on 11 June 1911 at Lake City, Columbia, Florida, United States, at age 59.1 He was buried after 11 June 1911 at Live Oak City Cemetery, Live Oak, Suwannee, Florida, United States.1
     He and Laura Ann Weeks WILLIAM HAMPTON'S TENTH CHILD was born to Mahaley Ogden Dowling on September 25, 1851, near the Swift Creek Cemetery in which two older brothers had been buried. His name was THOMAS. At the age of twenty-four, in Clay County, Florida, he became a bridegroom; Laura Ann Weeks was the bride. This marriage was May 14, 1876; its children are shown on Chart 532.

As late as 1880 THOMAS was just a wheelwright, living in Baldwin, Florida. But "he moved to Live Oak in 1890 bringing capital and workmen with his new sawmill and started a period of expansion and development" according to the recent booklet "Suwannee County Centennial". (There is also an excellent picture of him in it.) The sawmills he subsequently operated are known to have cut millions of feet of virgin longleaf pine. Seven years after his arrival THOMAS offered fellow residents the novelty of water through a pipe! . . . With only six bathtubs in town three years later it is a certainty that Mr. Dowling did not make his half-million dollar fortune out of his later sale of this utility!

Such enterprises as THOMAS'S fifteen-mile-long "Dowling Lumber Road" (now the L. O. P. & G. Railroad) helped triple Suwannee's population in a decade! He was also organizer of the Dowling Export and Lumber Company, the Tampa-Havana Lumber Company, and the Gulf Pine Company of Pasco County. THOMAS contributed largely to the erection of Live Oak's first Advent Christian Church by providing the land in 1900, shortly after a term on the town council. Death took him June 11, 1911; he and Laura are buried in the City Cemetery in Live Oak. (She died October 3, 1918. She and her parents, Elender Wilson and James Albert Weeks, were born in Florida. Laura's birthdate was March 6, 1853.)1

     Francis Marion Dowling was born on 18 January 1856 at Columbia, Florida, United States.1 He died on 25 December 1937 at Florida, United States, at age 81.1
     He THE TENTH SON OF WILLIAM HAMPTON'S was the last of twelve children born to him and Mahaley. Mr. Dowling honored the American General with whom grandfather JAMES DOWLING had fought by naming the boy FRANCIS MARION. The baby was born January 18, 1856, "in Columbia County". This could have been during his parents move from the White Springs area to the New River District; they were in the latter place during the 1860 census. At Green Cove Springs, January 30, 1876, FRANCIS married Polly Anna Weeks. Four years later he was a retail merchant in Lake City. After his divorce from Polly he married Harriett Rebecca Jaudon, daughter of Elizabeth Winters and Henry William Jaudon; this was February 1, 1883, about the time that he moved his business to Jacksonville. The terrible fire of 1901 almost wiped him out.

By 1906 this business of FRANCIS'S had grown into the large firm of Dowling Wholesale Company. At one time he was a partner in Dowling Naval Stores Company of Live Oak. Before his death on Christmas Day, 1937, FRANCIS MARION married a third time; his descendants are shown in Addendum 639. (Mr. Dowling's third wife was Mrs. Minnie Gillen Dubose, they married November 6, 1909; she lived from August 3, 1878, to February 18, 1936. Minnie was born in Florida, as were her parents, Mary Barns and Henry Gillen. Minnie and second wife Harriett are buried with FRANCIS at Jacksonville's Evergreen Cemetery. Harriett lived from August 16, 1860, to July 28, 1909. Polly, the first wife, is buried in Clay County, Florida, in the Beulah Church graveyard; she lived from October 9, 1855, to September 12, 1922.)1
