These are stills from the actual video which should explain why they are so difficult to see.....perhaps I'll figure out a way to upload it to utube one day....in the meantime, enjoy the photos!
Finding Annie Videos - uploaded August 27th-29th 2012 - After 8 years, I've finally upgraded the technology I use to the point that I am able to edit and save video in an up-loadable format....unfortunately the VCR tape had deteriorated more than I'd hoped (and in a few places had accidentally been recorded over (with an HGTV show or maybe one from Cartoon Network : ) so some of the original footage is lost. Luckily, the important parts remain so that I can show you one of our very own genealogical ghost stories...and also help explain why I call this website "Walking with Ghosts"....Lori McLeod Wilke 2012

Family of Eliza Ann Arrants McLeod Boykin
Eliza was the child of William Arrants and Charity Blyther. William is said to have been born in Queen Anns County, Maryland. He was the son of Johannas Arrants and Ann Alloway.
Sibling: James William Arrants
Eliza was the first cousin of Col. Boykin's third wife, Mary Arrants. See her family below.
The truth about a family legend:
Poor Col. Boykin had been cast as somewhat a villian by our family; he married two of the McLeod women and perhaps as a result held more of our family land than we even know about today. But, the discovery of an 1867 Lawsuit and an 1880 deed in which the dower lands of Eliza Arrants McLeod Boykin were returned to McLeod hands shows a different side to Boykin, at least in my opinion.
Although it has been said that Annie's parents, Daniel and Catherine McLean McLeod disapproved of her marriage to Boykin, I almost wonder now if that rumor itself came out of the "loss" of family land. Because, I see Boykin in a different light.
Married to Annie McLeod, Col. Boykin fought for the Confederacy in the 20th SC Company G. Fighting with him were his cousins by marriage, William McLeod, Alexander Moseley, George Moseley and William Moseley among others. While a prisoner of war, his wife died in childbirth and after the close of the war, he came home to find his neighbor and relative by marriage facing the sale of all her household goods and plantation tools, and facing what was likely very close to total destitution.
Boykin not only married the destitute widow, but he, along with other concerned friends and family, purchased the contents of her house for her at the auction held in 1867. He purchased the remaining 2/3's of the land which provided monies to attempt to settle the estate's debts. Was it greed or was it concern?
Reading the testimony of Alexander McLeod during the lawsuit, I no longer believe it was greed. Eliza continued to attend Antioch Baptist Church of which James E. Rodgers was the pastor until her death as did Alexander and Harriet and the Moseley's. And at her death, Col. Boykin buried Eliza Ann Arrants McLeod Boykin beside her first husband and her only child at that church. And at the very least the cause of the loss of our family land to Boykin was disproven, Harriet Yates McLeod purchased back the Dower Lands on the steps of the Camden Courthouse on February 6th 1880.
The Lawsuit which cast doubt on the McLeod Family Legend
On June 25th, 2004, we found a deed for Harriet McLeod, wife of Alexander E. McLeod in which she purchased 110 acres on the steps of the Camden Courthouse. Harriet purchased and sold a great deal of property after the War between the States so finding a deed with her name on it wasn't unique; but the wording of this particular deed was unigue. Kershaw Deed FF 544 "Title To Real Estate" Recorded June 2 1880 Estate of Angus McLeod, Harriet M. McLeod J.D. Dunlap Receiver to Harriet M. McLeod accessed and copied by Lori McLeod Wilke, David J. Wilke and Trish and Elizabeth Brown on June 25th, 2004 at the Camden County Courthouse, Kershaw County, South Carolina.
The deed stated that the Rev. James E. Rogers had "on or about the 22nd day of April (?) in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty seven, exhibited his complaint in the Court of Equity for the county aforesaid against Stephen M. Boykin and others praying for a settlement of the Estate of his testator, Angus McLeod, and for the sale of the real estate".
We immediately were curious regarding the lawsuit referenced in the 1880 deed but our research trip was coming to a close for 2004 and there was no time to head to the archives of the Equity Court. We had copied the estate file of Angus McLeod the previous year (2003) and had found nothing to indicate that a lawsuit had resulted from the settlement of the estate. The truth of this purchase of what appeared to be the lands of Angus McLeod II by his sister in law would have to wait until the next year.
In June of 2005, David and I returned to Camden and visited Room 113 of the Kershaw County Courthouse.....and with the help of the lady in charge were able to access the actual papers of the lawsuit, which had not been indexed at that point. Although some of the documents were faded or torn beyond the ability to be read, there were enough pages remaining to piece together the story.
It was known from previous research that Stephen Boykin and his wife Annie McLeod were the neighbors of Annie's first couins Angus McLeod and his wife, Eliza Ann Arrants and it was known from McLeod Family Legend that Boykin had married our Angus' widow after the end of the Civil War. The Lawsuit would allow us to finally understand the whole story.....
Angus McLeod, the youngest son of Alexander and Sarah McIntosh had inherited the homestead property of his father upon reaching his majority in approximately 1841 and upon his marriage to Eliza approximately that same year. The couple would have only one child survive into adulthood; this son, William, woud perish in 1862 while serving the Confederacy under his neighbor and cousin by marriage, Col. Stephen Boykin.
Angus died in 1864 also while serving, leaving Eliza widowed and childless. During this same time, Col Boykin was taken prisoner by the Union having been wounded and captured in 1864 at Cedar Creek; and held at Ft. Delaware until the war would end in 1865. While her husband was a POW, Annie McLeod died in what appears to have been childbirth. After taking the "Oath of Allegiance" on June 24th 1865, Col. Boykin was released and returned home from the war a widower himself.
Angus McLeod assigned the administration of his estate and his business (The J.N. and A. McLeod Firm) to his pastor and close friend, the Rev. James E. Rodgers (Antioch Baptist Church). Rodgers, believing the estate to be in fine shape and able to meet all of its expenses, allowed Eliza to remain upon the estate until such time as probate ended and it became legally her own. For the next eighteen months, Eliza Arrants McLeod would manage the estate without an overseer and would reportedly manage it well. Acting as its manager, she was able to negotiate with five or six of the freed men to remain on the plantation and help her to work it.
1866 - In late 1865 or in early 1866, upon realizing that neither the Firm nor the personal estate of Angus McLeod could be saved, Rodgers took possession of the plantation from Eliza, petitioned the court for permission to auction the estate and began the attempt to pay off the remaining debts.
A partial record in the Court of Common Pleas shows that on February 5th 1866 Rodgers held an auction on the plantation of all of the personal household and plantation goods including stock and harvested crops. Although he had not yet declared the estate insovlent, it is obvious that he was attempting to pay all the debts of the estate.
This partial record was used in testimony to show that Eliza McLeod "and others", who were unnamed had purchased a total of $965.68 that would be used to pay off the debts of the plantation, when the payments for purchases was received - the court ordered sale was to be done with a 12 month credit to the purchasers. Records in the estate file show that Eliza and "others" were not the only ones to purchase at this sale, but almost all the purchases had been made on 12 month credit - this was a disaster waiting to happen as all the area planters and residents were feeling the effects of the war and were money poor themselves.
On March 1 1866, Eliza McLeod married her neighbor and relative by marriage, Stephen M. Boykin. Marriage List of Rev. James E. Rodgers, Family Files of Boykin Descendants, Gravestone of Annie McLeod Boykin photographed June 2004 by Lori McLeod Wilke, David Jay Wilke at McLeod Cemetery aka New Hope Presbyterian Church Cemetery,
If one were to read just the estate file of her first husband, it would appear that Eliza married Col. Boykin while the 500 acre plantation was still flourishing and providing her a living. The file on its own mentions nothing about Rodgers having to take possession of a failing plantation and pay the debts not only of that estate and the business of two men killed in the war; nor does the estate file mention the selling of all of the household and personal goods of Eliza. The file simply shows that Eliza and Boykin received the land of Angus McLeod after their marriage in 1866. This estate file would seem to support our family legend of the "stolen" McLeod land.
But, reading the two files together gives a different perspective (the estate file plus the lawsuit). Although our family legend has stated that Boykin married Eliza for her land and property, the facts of the court case would seem to negate that.
Eliza was entitled by law to 1/3 of the lands of the estate; this dower land would be secure from the debts of the estate and would have included the house and outbuildings AND in the normal course of time would by law have reverted back to other heirs of the estate, likely Alexander McLeod.
But without the household and plantation goods which were sold in the insolvency and legal ownership of the full estate land to continue farming, she had no hope of an income. An empty house and fields that could not be worked were the legacy she would have received.
Although she was helped by unnamed "others" to purchase back at least $995.00 of her personal belongings, she was still in affect destitute. The truth could appear to be that Col. Boykin, perhaps one of the "others", married a woman who had lost both her son and her husband to the War and was, in March 1866, without any means of income.
Feb. - Dec. 1866 - In the meantime, Rodgers set about trying to pay all the debts of the estate. using the proceeds from the sale of the household and plantation goods and the sale of approximately 182 acres of the 500 acre estate. However, one must remember that the court had allowed the purchasers to use 1 year credit...the Court of Common Pleas file shows that Eliza had not paid for her purchases as late as August 1867, indicating that of the $1502.68 taken in by the estate in 1866, at least $995.65 of it was an unpaid note. On paper, the estate looked solvent, but its reality was completely different - in other words, had all the cash owed been paid, the estate may have been able to pay its debts and break even.
1867 - However, it is obvious that this did not occur - the estate file shows that on January 20th 1867, Rodgers petitioned the court for the division of the acreage that remained part of the estate, claiming that the estate of Angus McLeod was insolvent.
The January 20th petition, which stated the remaining land of the estate valued at about $600 - $700, resulted in commissioners being called upon to oversee the division of the property. William Price, W.W. Stokes, W. Lewis Cook, Joseph Stokes and Jesse Atkinson were subpoenaed by the court and went out upon the land the next day with Boykin, who was a surveyor, to divide it 1/3 (approximately 109 acres) to Eliza in accordance with Law of Dower and 2/3rds (approximately 209 acres) to Rodgers in payment for his administration.
Although the estate file didn't specify this fact, those same commissioners were also to determine a reasonable recompense for Eliza's overseeing the plantation for 18 months. According to the lawsuit, the commissioners determined that a reasonable payment would have been $400.00 excluding board. This was to be separate from the dower lands.
On February 23rd, 1867, Rodgers sold his 209 acres to Boykin for only $75.00, despite its having been valued at approximately $1.88 per acre on January 20th, Boykin purchased it for roughly $.36 an acre. The $75.00 Rodgers received was paid out to the creditors of the estate and business of Angus McLeod. On April 15th, Rodgers filed the report on the division of the estate.
Between January and March 1867, the estate received $174.00 on payment of the notes it held with expenditures of $174.96. This appears to leave a profit for the years 1866 and 1867 of $1080.04. However, on April 27th, only 12 days later, Rodgers was filing a lawsuit against Col. Boykin and Eliza, et al - the et al appears to have been John S. Bradley who was the administrator of the estate of Angus' brother, John N. McLeod.
Reading the contents of both files, it is clear that upon learning of the bankruptcy of the estate, creditors of what appears to have mostly been against the now bankrupted J.N. & A. McLeod Firm of which Rodgers was previously unaware of came out the woodwork so to speak. These creditors must have threatened to file lawsuits against Rodger's personally which apparently left him no choice but to have the courts intervene to settle the estate once and for all.
Unfortunately, the document which detailed Rodgers Complaint was deteriorated so badly that it was unreadable. But, reading those pages which are legible, it would appear that Rodgers was in return filing suit upon Eliza, as the widow for the almost $1000.00 she owed and upon John S. Bradley, as administrator of Angus' brother's estate to share in the payment of the debts of the Firm. Also named in the lawsuit was Michal Watkins, a known neighbor of Angus' brother, Alexander. What part Watkins played is unknown as the complaint was illegible.
Eliza's dower was protected from the creditors of her husband's estate by law for her lifetime, but she had been awarded commissions, bonuses and compensation for her overseeing of the estate. In addition, one must remember that Eliza owed the personal estate $995.68 from the sale of February 5th 1866; and also remembering that the sale was done on 12 month credit. Eliza had not paid that debt which had been due on February 1st, 1867 and by time Rodger's filed the suit in April, remained unpaid. John N. McLeod's estate was still considered to be solvent, as least until 1868 when his widow, Kitsy's, dower was established.
One cannot blame Rodgers, who was obviously under personal attack for an estate not his own, the administration of which was undertaken during wartime, for filing a lawsuit to protect himself. In fact, the court decreed that those who were filing against Rodgers were legally bound from doing so until the close of his lawsuit.
Likewise, the Answer of the Plaintiffs (Boykin, Eliza and John S. Bradley, and possibly Michel Watson and John Crosswell) was also badly deteriorated and illegible, but the commissioner's report dated September 23rd 1867, gives a clue as to its contents….The Plaintiffs had all purchased (on 12 months credit) items from the sale on February 5th 1866 but had not made payment on those items. They were apparently claiming the estate owed them money, in Eliza's case for the 18 months management of the estate, AND for rent of the land and dower apparently for 1866 and 1867 when Rodgers had re-taken possession of it and therefore they were not going to pay Rodgers until he settled the debts they were owed.
It is easy to see the dilemma....Rodgers, as executor of the estate, was trying to collect approximately $2000.00 owed to the estate of Angus McLeod in order to pay off the creditors to the estate. BUT, he owed approximately $400.00 to Eliza McLeod Boykin who owed him $995.68 of the approximately $2000.00. One must wonder why Eliza simply didn't deduct what she was owed from what she herself owed.....but, did anyone have any currency in the years following the war?
I have spent many hours going over what remains of the court case and have come to the conclusion based upon what remains of those documents, that many of those creditors who came against Rodgers as executor had filed erroneous debts against the estate. The documents indicate that many of the claims were not ever proven; some of the debts were dated from pre-war years and one must wonder why they had not been paid previously ...or were they? So many of the Southern planters were in their own ways destitute and desperate...did they take advantage of the confusion of the aftermath by trying to claim debts which did not exist? For where were these supposed creditors of the estate/firm during the three years that Rodgers was paying all the expences of the both the estate and the firm, sometimes borrowing from one to pay the debts of the other?
In any event, Rodgers hired W.W. Shannon as his attorney while the Boykin's hired Mr. Kershaw as theirs. Mr. Shannon subpoenaed the Boykin's, John S. Bradley, John Crosswell and Michel Watson. The subpoenas were delivered on April 29th 1867 by Special Deputy Willis Gaylord (son in law of Angus and John's brother, Alexander McLeod), who, by order of Sheriff J. M. Whelder, personally served John Crosswell and left a copy at John Bradley's residence. Sheriff Sills personally visited Col. Boykin and gave him two copies and his special deputy B. Bateman delivered Michel Watson his copy. Kershaw Court of Common Pleas, J.E. Rodgers vs. S.M. Boykin, his wife, et (et al being Michel Watson, John Crosswell, John S.

On June 11th, a motion was made with the consent of both attorneys, to marshal the assets of the estate of Angus McLeod and that Rodger's provide all records to the court of his administration of the estate. J. D. Dunlap was appointed the Receiver. This motion specifically named John S. Bradley (Administer), Michel Watson and John Crosswell and restrained them from pursing their "actions at law" against Rodgers. The Camden Journal was to advertise a notice compelling all the creditors of the estate to file and establish their demands.
On August 20th, testimony was taken from the commissioners who had divided the property and had negotiated Eliza's commission. Testimony was also taken from Angus McLeod's only surviving brother, Alexander McLeod. The men all testified to the state of the crops in the years 1864-1866, Eliza's management of the estate for 18 months and whether they felt that the recompense was fair.
From August until September, the claimaints against the estate of Angus McLeod presented their notes to the court. Unfortunately, most of the notes were from the bankrupt Firm and whether or not these claims were proven in the end is unknown due to the missing documents from the Court of Common Pleas file.
In the end, what appears to have happened is that those claims which eventually were proven were paid as follows: claims of under $100.00 were paid in full; claims in excess of $100.00 were paid 25% to equal those who had already recieved that percentage from Rodgers in his attempts to settle the estate without a court case.
The remainder of the debts were to paid at the death of Eliza Ann Arrants McLeod Boykin from the sale of her dower lands.
