101 Henry Clay Yarbrough died when his youngest child Tennessee was 4 months old in 1877. He loved horses and made his living raising them. He served in the calvary in the Civil War. He died of Dropsy. Per Vickie Lynn Burns the 2nd great granddaughter of Selina Grace Yarbrough, the wife of Henry, "I'm not sure what illness we would label that now but it involved swelling-probably an accumulation of fluids in the body. His legs swelled until they burst open. It must have been an agonizing death for him and a nightmare for the family to watch. His last words were to ask Selina (his wife) to bring the baby (Tennie who is Vickie's great grandmother) to the bed so he could see her one last time. He had a dark complexion and auburn hair." Yarbrough, Henry Clay (I0040)

103 His obituary recaps his life:

Jessee Hardin Wickham, extensive No. 19 landowner, retired farmer and blacksmith, died at this home near Tarsus Church at the age of 75. He had been in ill health because of a heart and kidney condition. Ten days ago he fell from a mule when the animal shied from a motorcycle, and received injuries which hastened his death.

He was born in Hopkinsville, Christain County, Ky. His parents were Robert L. and Elizabeth Marsh Wickham. They returned to the home near Palmyra when he was an infant.

Mr. Wickham was widely known as an iron worker. He was employed by the old Red River Iron Works for many years, afterward being connected with Allen Creek Iron Works in Wayne County, Tennessee.

This information is referenced on page 34 of Frankie Daniel Sellas' book The Home Folks.

104 Huldy's death would have been after 1857 because she died since her father's death which was in the year of 1856. But before Feb. 12, 1861 because her brother and sister state that she is dead now. Her last child (Thomas) which is in the document as unnamed was her last child and he was born 1857 (per the 1860 census). She is also listed in the 1860 census with her husband, Leftridge with her children. The 1860 census was taken on September 27, 1860, therefore she was still living in September of 1860 and this document was sworn in on February 12, 1861.

Huldy dies between September 27, 1860 (date of the 1860 Census) and February 12, 1861.

Document sworn on Feb 12, 1861, filed on March 22, 1861

Loose Papers of Montgomery County Chancellor Court, at the Montgomery County Archives, file Carver VS Breeden. A document which is a sworn testimony of John Oldham and Martha (CLARK) Oldham. They state "in the year 1857 Wm. Clark the father of the said Noah Clark and Martha Oldham died intestate in Montgomery County, Tennessee".

"Wm. Clark died intestate leaving the following children, beside complanants, towith Eliose Clark, John Clark, Thomas Clark, Nancy Breeden wife of Carrol Breeden and formerly Nancy Clark and Mary Carver, formerly Mary Clark, and the following children who died before the said Wm. Clark and left children, towith Wm. Clark Decd. who left several children the names of only those of them being known towith, Jane, Elizabeth and ????????? Clark, also ????? Foster a daughter who died before the death of the said Wm. Clark, and left the following children William, Martha, John Foster: also Huldy Crockett another daughter who died since her father the said William and left children Benjamin, Martha, Jane, William, Melvin, Sally and another child name unknown."

105 I was very lucky to be introduced to Vickie Lynn Burns Trainor, a cousin, through the internet. She had direct contact with an individual that knew Selina Grace Jackson Yarbrough very well. The following are correspondence with her regarding Selina.

Friday, August 9, 2002, via email

Hi Jinny,

Good to hear back from you. I understand about the grandchild coming first. My children are 16 and 10 and I miss rocking babies and lullabies We seem to be the same number of generations removed from Selina and Henry.ll My descent is as follows:
My maiden name was Vickie Lynn Burns. My mother was Peggy Geraldene Tanner. Her mother was Pearl Grace Lyle. Her mother was Tennessee Yarbrough. Tennie was married to Thomas Jordan "Gol" Lyle and was the youngest child of Henry and Selina Jackson Yarbrough. They lived at Hackberry until 1919 when they moved to a farm on Yellow Creek in Houston County where they lived out their lives. I live in Houston County not far from the Dickson County line so we are not too many miles apart. I often drive through Palmyra on my way to Clarksville.

Sylvia Turner gave me your email address. My phone number is 931-764-2539. I don't know William Jackson's wife or parents either. I wish I could help.

I really wish I could help you with pictures of Selina and Henry. I've been asking everyone I can think of for years. Probably the only pictures of Henry Yarbrough was one in his Civil War uniform in one of those little book-like frames, but when Selina died they buried it in her hands. There should be a picture of Selina somewhere, we lived so much longer than Henry, but I haven't found one yet. As for the name - Selina Grave vs. Grace Salina - I depend on two mail sources. The first is my grandmother (and her siblings) who remembered it as Selian Grace. She lived with them and was an important part of their childhood which would add weight to their recollection. The second is the marriage record of Henry and Selina where she is listed as Selina G. Jackson.

Henry Clay Yarbrough died when his youngest child Tennessee was 4 months old in 1877 so I know less about him than his wife. He loved horses and made his living raising them. He serve in the Calvery in the Civil War. I haven't found records of his service yet. I thing he might have crossed into Kentucky to join a calvary unit. He died of what was termed dropsy. I'm not sure what illness we would label that now but it involved swellling-probably an accumulation of fluids in the body. His legs swelled until they burst open. It must have been an agonizing death for him and a nightmare for the family to watch. His last words were to ask Selina to bring the baby (Tennie) to the bed so he could her one last time. He had a dark complexion and auburn hair.

I haven't gotten to anything about Selina yet but have to go for now. I'll send more later. I'd like to know more about Robert and Sarah's family, too, so I may have some questions along the way.

40MT371 Yellow Creek Furnace ca. 1805-1862

Construction of the Yellow Creek furnace by Dr. Morgan Brown was probably completed in 1805 (Goodspeed 1887: 773). By 1819, it was owned by Montgomery Bell, who, by 1822, completed the sale of the "ironworks" and 2,474 acres to Thomas Watson and Dr. John H. Marable (Montgomery County Deed Book I, p. 1076 and K, p. 306). After a flood washed out the operation in 1836, the property was purchased by the firm of Steele and Sox who restablished a furnace on the site, naming it the Yellow Creek Furnace (Goodspeed 1887: 773). This was a water-powered operation until about 1855, when it was converted to steam (Safford 1856: 52). A forge was added in 1840 that included four knobling fires and a water-driven hammer (Lesley 1859: 215).

The 1850 manufactures census shows that Steele and Socks' furnace and forge had produced 600 tons of pig metal and 400 tons of blooms. Figures supplied by Lesley (1859: 133, 215) for the years 1855 and 1857 reflect an increase in production of almost twice as much pig iron and about the same amount of iron blooms. This source also shows that the Yellow Creek operation was owned by Robert Steele and Company and managed by J. McDonald and A. Brigham.

The furnace and forge were destroyed in 1862 by Union troops and Robert Steele was killed (Goodspeed 1887: 773).

Henry(Thomas)Tomlinson is the nephew of Clarrisa Tomlinson (wife of Able Jackson)

John Howell Sugg is the father of Winifred Azalia Sugg (wife of John Jackson) - John Jackson is the grandson of William Jackson.

We believe William Jackson and Able Jackson are brothers. Sons of "Killin"Stephen Jackson of South Carolina.

125 John William Wickham was an avid horseman as he was on call as the Community doctor and cared for the sick at their residence, as most did not have transportation.

Dr. John Wickham was a close friend to Austin Peay of Clarksville, who later became the three-time Governor of Tennessee. They served together in the 52nd Tennessee Legislature (House of Representative) in 1901.

While in office, John Wickham chaired the Committee of Sanitation. Alone or with fellow representative Austin Peay, he presented the House with a total of twenty-four bills, of which three were passed into Acts. The most important of these were Act #478 "To regulate the practice of Medicine and Surgery in Tennessee." Except for a few additions and/or changes the Act outlines the ethical code, training necessary, and provides an Examining Board to issue license to practice and to revoke the license of those found guilty of malpractice. He also introduced the Bill #503, which empowed the State Board of Health to enforce the Pure Food Laws.

Dr. John William Wickham was tragically killed when Charley Baggett shot him while attempting to board a train bound for Clarksville out of Hackberry. The incident was based on a dispute about the purchase of a wagon and Mr. Baggett's default of his share of the payment. John Wickham was shot three times and transported to Nashville for special surgery but did not survive.

A jury trial held two years later resulted in a hung jury, Charley Baggett died before a second trial could be held. Baggetts were as old and as prolific a pioneer family as the Wickhams. Community feelings ran high. The reasoning of the verdict was that because John Wickham had carried a rifle with him that day Baggett was forced to shoot in self defense.

126 Joseph Proctor was married once before Pollyanna Marsh but we do not know who she was. Pollyanna and Joseph had several children and gave one-half acre of their land for the building of a school.

Mary Thompson Wickham stayed at the homeplace during the civil war, while her husband was in Missouri as a speculator. During her time at the homeplace she had honey bees and was known by family members to hide her money in with the bees for safe keeping, and a pistol in a tree stump for protection as there was much robbing and stealing during the war, especially since she was the mother of a Northern sympathier and was living in deep Southern terriority. Her son Robert Lewis Wickham and Robert's father in-law Bill Marsh were the only two votes at the Palmyra voting district to vote against the seccesion from the Union. The next day after the vote they went to Kentucky to sign up with the Union forces leaving Elizabeth Marsh Wickham and her mother in law Mary Thompson Wickham alone in the Wickham homeplace. (per conversation with Nancy Wickham Ledbetter, granddaughter of E.T. Wickham)

In 1860 Mary Polly Thompson Wickhan is listed in the household with Son Robert Lewis Wickham and his family. She is 70 years old.

147 Miss Leila, known to all became the mistress of her father's house after her mother's death. She never married and cared for her bachelor brother's Omar, Porter, and Dewitt, who were prosperous farmers. I can remember my mother affectionately speaking of Aunt Leila and her peacocks and how as an old spinster she loved to see her nieces and nephews of her sister Madge Bridgett.

The Robert Anderson Wickham home place is located close to the river and beside the railroad tracks which is now owned by Bobby Powers.

Obituary for Leila Wickham

Funeral Services held Miss Leila Wickham - 78 - Tarsus Methodist Church near Palmyra. Rev. Ceal Miller - Burial Wickham Cemetary, Milligan Funeral Home. Died at home Wednesday after short illness. Member of Methodist Church. Parents were Robert A. & Sarah Eliza. Yarbrough Wickham - Survivors: 4 brothers: R.G.Wickham, Detroit Michigan, Porter Wickham, Dewitt Wickham, Herbert Wickham of Palmyra. 2 sisters Mrs. Nolen Crockett of Palmyra and Mrs. Arthur Yarbrough of Clarksville.

Great Aunt Leila kept a clean and beautiful house. Although she never married the Wickham homeplace was considered her household and she maintained fine and beautiful furnishings up until her death. Some items that are still maintained by the family are a pump organ, and easel. My mother, Virginia Crockett Jackson purchased from the homeplace during an auction, Great Aunt Leila's mirror. Up until my mother's death this mirror hung above out fireplace. It is now hanging in my house in the bed room above my bed. It is a beautiful gold leaf, beveled edge mirror about 4 feet in length. A treasure not only because of it's beauty, but for the family heritage.
