     Jabez Dowling was born between March 1770 and August 1770 at South Carolina, United States.1 He married Rebecca unknown at Ware, Georgia, United States.2
     Jabez Dowling JABEZ, the oldest son of an oldest son, was born in 1770 between March and August. Rebecca gave birth to him in South Carolina He was carried to the Little Salkehatchee area as a child. JABEZ married young as had father WILLIAM. For Author Folks Huxford states that spinster ELIZABETH Dowling (residing in 1850 with the Blackburns in Ware County) was a daughter of JABEZ. She was born in 1786. . . .

In 1800 JABEZ sold, for fifty pounds sterling, a one-hundred acre tract of land adjacent to Cypress Pond. It is most likely the land that father WILLIAM had purchased a quarter-century earlier. Other places owned by JABEZ included a 609 acre tract granted him by the state in 1810 and described as lying next to ELIJAH'S farm on a road leading from the Johnston Bridge (on the South Edisto) to the "Old Savannah Crossing" (on the Little Salkehatchee). By the age of thirty-eight Dowling was a Justice of the Peace in the Salkehatchee area of South Carolina. Georgia records show his "passport" affidavits so necessary for Carolinians desiring to cross the Creek Nation that lay between them and New Orleans. JABEZ saw a chance to even an old score in 1814. The Americans and British were at it again, so he enlisted in the defense forces of Colonel Youngblood's Regiment, taking son DENNIS with him. Shortly afterwards JABEZ and most of his family left Barnwell District. One of his last acts in his native state was the witnessing of brother ELIJAH'S will. After a brief residence in coastal McIntosh County, Georgia, these Dowlings moved to the section of old Wayne County that now lies in Brantley County. There, too, he was a Justice of the Peace, 1822-1824. JABEZ spent nearly half of his life in the place he moved next: the 590th Militia District of Ware County. He and wife Rebecca were there at the time of the 1840 census. (Rebecca was about the same age as her husband; her maiden name is unknown. She died within ten years after this. About 1825 she had helped organize that area's Smyrna Church.) At this place, as in South Carolina, JABEZ helped civilization's progress by teaching school; for this grandson of ROBERT'S was a leader. In 1825 he became church clerk of High Bluff Baptist Church (called "Big Creek Meeting House" at one time); he held this job continuously until his death over three decades later. The 1828 minutes of the Piedmont Baptist Association list him as a delegate. And on December 11, 1843, he was licensed to preach. Picturesque High Bluff Baptist Church still stands—its old shingled roof probably overlooking the last resting place of this Dowling couple.

Preacher, teacher, farmer, public-servant. . . and even an Indian fighter! For prior to his death JABEZ was granted bounty-lands by the government in recognition of his services in the Indian Wars that flared around the Okefenokee in the 1830's. Copies of the affidavits made by this ancestor of most of Georgia's Dowlings describing his two military careers may be obtained from Federal Archives. He had signed the last one in 1855 at which time he was eighty-four. The remainder of this memorable man's life is lost to us. And one wonders whether this elderly Dowling knew at the time what had happened to his younger brother, MICAJAH.

Tombstone - DOWLING, Annie Regina Hopewell Cem Hampton SC

     
From A Dowling Family of the South

The last child of JAMES THEOPHILUS was the only one who would die single: ANNIE REGINA. Born in 1860, this daughter died a scant twenty-three years later. She is interred in the graveyard adjoining Hopewell Baptist Church.

The above appears to be incorrect since her tombstone reads that she died Sept. 10, 1881 at age 20 years, 11 months and 8 days. This would have placed her birth on 2 Oct 1860. US Census records also may be incorrect. The 1860 census was taken on 20 Sep and Annie was not enumerated since she would not have been since she was born two weeks later.

In the 26 Aug 1870 census she was listed as 10 years old. In the 23 Jun 1880 census she is listed as age 18.

The year of death of 1883 as recorded in A Dowling Family of the South was likely calculated from the erroneous age of 23 and a birth year of 1860.

Based on her tombstone I am using a birth date of 2 Oct 1860.4,3

Written for My children at Hampton, S.C.
September 16, 1914

Dear Children:

Time would fail me to write of my remembrances, of observations and actual experiences after the surrender of the Confederate Army in April 1865. But at your request, I pen you some of the events of the ever-memorable months of my girlhood days in 1865.

My father, your grandfather, Honorable A. M. Ruth, who died while attending the South Caroling Legislature, as Senator of old St. Peter's Parish in 1853, owned a large number (82) slaves, and 7,000 acres of land, and my windowed mother's children were all, loyal and Patriotic to the Confederacy. My oldest sister's husband, Major J. J. Harrison, commanding the 11th South Carolina Infantry, was killed in the battle of Pocotalico, S. C. November 22, 1862. My oldest brother, Captain A. M. Ruth of the Hampton Legion (head of his company) was severely wounded in the Battle of Brandy Station in August 1863, and my brother, R. G. Ruth was a brave and gallant soldier boy of Butler's Brigade of Cavalry, and with your father (my husband) followed Hampton to the last ditch.

In February 1865, when General Sherman's Vandalistic hordes were already across the Savannah River in Close advance to my mother's home, sweeping devastation throughout old Beaufort district, my said wounded brother, Captain Ruth, gathered his own sisters, myself, Emma and Carrie, and his wife's sisters, the Goethe girls, and our little brothers Homer Ruth and "Sashie" Goethe, and Tommie Speaks, and with several loyal and faithful servants with wagons, horses, provisions, etc. refugeed before the army to cross Hill Village, Laurens County.

The winter was extremely severe and our encampment at night without shelter from snows and sleet for three weeks of hurried march-to say nothing of anxiety and dangers-were a bitter experience.

The Cross Hill people, Drs. Watson, Coxes, and Simpson were very kind to us but mail communications were all cut off and not tidings from home were we had . . .left our mother's made us distressingly homesick, and in June we all returned, but only to find devastation and destruction even far worse than our anticipation had been, and famine stared us in the face from every side, but for Jehovah Jireh (Biblical expression).

But the worst things at this time were the Negro raids, especially in Beaufort District and adjacent sections of Colleton District, all at that time under the military company Negro rule. These districts, now counties, contained more slaves than any other in our state and until now the colored population here are more numerous than any other section in the whole South. The Yankees, especially northern scalawags and looters, had embittered the Negroes against the Whites, teaching them that the bottom rail was now on the top, denouncing us as 'He-Rebs' and 'She-Rebs" and filling them with hatred, incendiarism,
-2-

pillage, and revenge. Consequently, while men organized southing clubs for protection, two of which distinguished themselves, and were known as the 'Lightsey Company' and the Boynton Scouts', but for these, unwritten history would have had many additional dark and horrid spots on her horizon of crime and shame.

I will briefly relate a few of these Negro raids and facts which I know to be true as perpetuated by inflamed savage brutes, raiding unarmed and defenseless homes (the few not burned by Sherman) where families were living together, not knowing how nor where the next meal would come from.

After a scanty meal of bread and water, at Newville (?) on the Colleton side of Salkxehatchie, where I had attended the school of my sister's husband, Lieutenanut Buckner, before the war, there was a social and friendly gathering of ladies at a home, and about dinner time, a company of Combanee negroes, with guns, approached the dwelling and abruptly and insultingly ordered dinner prepared for them all and fixed on the table. The ladies being frightened and fearing for their lives, obeyed, and were forced to wait on them, one being ordered to brush the flies. Not fearing that any 'He-Rebs' were near, they had stacked their arms, and were eating gluttonously, using no knives and forks, when the Boynton Scouts rushed up, seized their guns, and quickly every Negro bit the dust, not leaving one to tell the tale, as the joyous ladies, anticipating outrage and death, thanked God and cheered at their deliverance.

On the Beaufort District side, the Lightsey Company, possessed of blood hounds, was a menance to the vicious blacks, as well as Yankee Whites. Nevertheless, a Beaufort Island band came to Ridgeville near Yemassee one night and outraged the home of a noble widow where several ladies were stopping who had just returned from refugeeing. The Black brutes crowed the house, the young ladies, frightened the screaming, clung to the mother for protection. She resisted heroically, and not only was showered with epithets and curses as 'Rebel Bitch', etc. but received blows on her head from which she never fully recovered. Two of the girls were brutally and unnamely outraged, and one escaped by jumping from a high window and feeling through the darkness. Two young men of the social gathering were first seized, overpowered, and tied, and of course, would have been killed, but for the interference of an old Negro who knew one of the boys and who loosed his hands to assist the fainting and bleeding mother of the home. The next day, the same raiding and pillaging crowd of savage brutes moved to up the Isham Peeples (my own grandfather) place. Here they met and captured my brother Gassie Ruth, and harassed and would have killed him, but for the help of one of the plantation's former slaves, who knew and loved him-but again he was halted and surrounded, but being mounted, he dashed for his life and escaped the many bullets that whizzed around him through the briers and densely crowded branches of the trees.

On another occasion, several of these black fiends came to my mother's home and set the tourch to her home which Sherman had spared, but our faithful old Daddy Peter (colored) put the flames out again and again. Five of the brutes entered the mansion and forbade
-3-

my mother calling them Negroes, and threatened her life if she repeated 'negroes' again. A girl friend, who was visiting me, and I escaped by a back way through the end of the swamp to our brother's home at our Appling Place (Sylvan Springs).

But these are only samples of other events of those, the blackest days of all Carolina history. Time would fail me to tell of Radicalism and Klu Kluxism that kept it suppressed and protected us like 'pillars of fire by night' until 1876 when the Sons of Confederate Veterans had reached their young manhood, and fell into line with their patriotic fathers and with political ballots and civil 'personal' powers, arose in splendor, led by the great Wade Hampton, and hoisted the banners of white supremacy under which peace and goodwill will now reign, with prosperity, Christian joy, pride and glory throughout the whole Southland.

Affectionately,

Your Mother
