      Southern Democrat, Oneonta AL, Thursday, July 6 1922, page 1 column 4.       Mrs Sarah Blalock dead.       Just as we go to press we learn of the death of Mrs Sarah Blalock, beloved wife of Uncle Jack (John) Blalock which accured at the home of her daughter, Mrs Frank Lowe, Oneonta Route 2 Wednesday morning, aged about 75 years.     This good woman had been a paralytic for quite a while.       She was a consistent member of the Missionary Baptist Church for many years.     The deceased is survived by her aged husband, two daughters, Mrs Frank Lowe of Oneonta AL, R 2 and Mrs Lucy Gilliland of Arkansas and one son, W. J. Blalock of Oneonta R 1. Interment at Antioch today (Thursday).

      Southern Democrat, Oneonta AL, Thursday, March 19 1931, page 1.       J. T. Blalock dies after brief Illness.     J. T. Blalock, after a very brief illness, died at the home of his son in law, D. F. Lowe, on route 2, Oneonta AL, early Sunday morning.       Mr Blalock was 82 years of age and was one of the oldest citizens of this part of the county. He was a native of Lee county, coming to Blount county while yet a young man. He settled in this immediate section and spent the remainder of his life within a few miles of where he died.       He at once identified himself with the best interests of the county and for many years served as a school trustee. Later he served two terms as a member of the Court of County Commissioners. In this capacity he rendered much valuable service. he was a quite but conservative leader and his advice was sought by both old and young. When Uncle Jack Blalock expressed his views on any question it carried great weight.       Mr Blalock had been a member of the Baptist Church since August 1876, having connected himself with Old Liberty Baptist Church at that time. At the time of his death he was a member of Tait's Gap Baptist Church where he lived for a number of years and engaged in the mercantile business. He enjoyed the full confidence of all who were so fortunate as to have personal contact with him. It has often been said of him that if he ever wronged anyone it was unintentional.       Mr Blalock was a man who had strong convictions and he lived by those convictions, yet he conceded to others the right to their views, and differed with them in a friendly way.       He was a staunch Democrat, but his life was spent in a community where most of his neighbors were of a different political faith yet they were the closest of friends.       Mr Blalock had been a constant reader of the Democrat for 34 years. His subscription dated back to April 1 1897. He always kept his subscription paid in advance and with very few exceptions paid it on the first day of every month.       The very great popularity of Mr Blalock was shown by the fact that a vast throng of people attended his funeral at Antioch Monday. The services were conducted by Rev P. J. Jordan assisted by L. T. Findley, Rev R. A. Tuck, Rev Ira Tidwell and Rev W E Ellis.       The deceased is survived by one son, W. J. Blalock of Route 1 Oneonta AL, two daughters, Mrs D. F. Lowe of route 2 Oneonta and Lucy Gilliland of Morley MO.; one sister, Mrs Alice Burdell of Rome GA. He is also survived by nineteen grandchildren and about 46 great grandchildren.

Mifflin Tennessee
Feb 20th 1879

Mr W. H. Peddy

      Kind friend I received your letter last Saturday, which you may rest assure was read with pleasure. Verry glad indeed you thought enough of me to write too me.
      I have nothing of interest to write everything as usual is dull. I do know this is one of the dullest neighbor-hoods I ever saw, every boddie stays at home, wheather they work or play I cant tell though I suppose they all do like I do (play). Mr. Buck I am very glad to hear that you are so well pleased with Texas. As to your friend I think you will in a short time have as many there as here if you dont I say this much, It is not your fault. You left a great many warm hearted friends back here in Tenn. and I think you will in the corse of a few years be like Mr. Frank H.   Will say Texas is a great state but Tenn is the garden spot, though I hope you will be pleased longer than Mr. Frank, by the way I rec. a letter from him Saturday you just ought to see it, I think it would make you sick.
      Mr. Buck I guess you will find Miss Katie out there, or at least I hope you will. I guess you will get a nice little house away out there in Texas and what a nice quiet time you and Miss Katie will have. (Mr Buck you must excuse my foolish expressions as you know I'm good at foolishness) You spoke of having a sweetheart out there you seceded in finding one very quick. You must get her picture and send it to me I would like very much to see a Texas girls picture to compair it with the Tenn ones not that I think the Tenn girls will look better than the Texas ones. I expect you have some very prettie girls out there.
      Well Mr Buck I suppose you want to know how I spent Christmas (though you said nothing about Christmas) I dont think I ever saw a dull Christmas in my life. I diten have any company atall, I received a Christmas present. It was a sack of Confectionaries, it was presented by Mr. S     The weather was so very bad the young people could not injoy Christmas very much.
      Mr Buck I had my fortune told a few weeks ago. I was told that I was to be married next May I had better begin to hunt me a fellow up and was told severald other things not necessary to mention. If I was with you I could tell it all.
      I must tell you about Annie and Lessie. Be sweetheart. We have a young preacher on our circuit Chris and Lessie B and I are tacking on terrable about him, though I have the oldest claim. I had the pleasure of his company last first Sunday over to Mason's Grove he's very good company indeed. Yes I wend to Mason's Grove to church Saturday and went over the river and stade all night with Fannie Boon and came back next day to church and went home with Miss Frank Hanes and Mr Buck you must excuse this long letter but I havent told you half I have to tell you. I went to see Miss Nan Pasham a few weeks ago she said tell you good-by for her. Give my love to Ma, also to Miss Narcie and tell her to write to me, respect to family and write soon to your very True Friend.
      (signed)       Emma Bond

      Buck and his descendants were proud enough of this letter to preserve it and pass it down.     Emma did not come up in my family tree so I saved the letter, but did not research, Who was Emma Bond.   By 1950 there were no Bond's in the Mifflin, Glendale or New Friendship Community of Chester County TN that I knew of, but I still wondered, Who was Emma Bond?   In passing my cousin (Lee Nell Stanfill King) told me that Emma Bond married John S Taylor.   Then my Aunt (Joyce JONES PRUITT) told me that Jasper Jones, brother to my Grandfather (Hugh Ned Jones) had inherited the Elisha Bond farm that his mother, Sarah Frances SPENCER JONES had purchased with money that she inherited.   Ah, a potential link to Emma.   Elisha Bond had married Elizabeth TRUETT, sister of Ann Catherine TRUETT (Sept 25 1805 - Jan 28 1853), my Great great grandmother, wife of Allen Kincaid Jones - at last a possible connection.

The Bond's lived about 1/2 mile north of the location of the Glendale School which would have been about 2 miles from Holly Springs Methodist Church. Jasper Jones inherited this farm after his mother purchased it with money that she inherited.

In the 1990's the Swaffords live on the farm. From the Glendale school location go north - toward Mifflin, about 1/2 mile and the property is on the left before the creek.)

Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" BRAY was born April 3 1844 in TN, daughter of Elijah Bray, born 1809 and Elizabeth PATTERSON, born 1811. BRAY DAR info   Sallie married Andrew Jackson PEDDY in TN between May 3 1869 & June 12 1869. This time period is determined from two census records where the number of years married is shown and from the Andrew J Peddy will.
      Sallie taught school - probably at the Buckley School and paid farm debt with her teacher salary. Sallie owned land and she loaned money to her sons to buy property - money that she had inherited from her parents. Sallie owned & played an organ. [The organ was passed on to daughter, Cora Peddy SEATON.] Sallie worked hard & farmed while her husband was traveling to Nashville TN or out to TX.   Andrew engaged in politics, land speculation in TX & visited relatives in TX.       Between 1902 and 1910 son, Hubert Peddy was murdered in New Mexico (or Texas). Because of the animosity between Hubert and his father, Andrew J did not go and retreive the body. Sallie was very upset that Andrew J would not go and retreive the body.   Hubert's burial place is now unknown to living Peddy descendants in 2004.           Children: (1) William Franklin Peddy Feb 28 1870 - Nov 29 1870   (2) John Allen Peddy Feb 23 1872 - July 11 1952   (3) Hubert Ellis Peddy July 25 1875 - (1902-1910).   (4) Elma Elizabeth Peddy May 30 1877 - Sept 30 1893   (5) Luther Lee "Luke" Peddy Mar 26 1879 - March 15 1955   (6) Ollie Mae Peddy Aug 20 1882 - Aug 8 1905   (7) Minnie Orrah Peddy Feb 17 1884 - July 23 1916   (8) Cora Eva Peddy Feb 4 1890 - Dec 1 1977.     Many years after Hubert E Peddy was murdered Sallie gave her grandson, Herschel H Peddy a pocket watch, a knife and a Mexican Silver dollar that Hubert had in his pocket when he was murdered.
      In their later years when they could no longer care for themselves Andrew J Peddy went to live with his son, James E. "Jim" Peddy and Sallie went to live with her daughter, Cora E Peddy Seaton.
      Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" BRAY PEDDY died Nov 20 1921. She is buried at New Friendship Cemetery in Chester Co TN beside her husband, Andrew J Peddy. They have seperate tombstones, but Sallie's tombstone does say "Wife of A. J. Peddy".
      Henderson Co TN Chancery Court Book 7 (1880-1882), pages 59, 139-144, April 1 1880.   Sallie Peddy and husband, Andrew Peddy and others verses A. E. Bray, Polk Bray, and others. It appears in court that Elizabeth Bray died in her residence in Henderson Co TN in Sept 1878 and she left 6 tracts of land, all adjoining Clarks Creek in Civil District 4 in Henderson Co TN. She had been survived by her husband, Elijah Bray and children; Sally, wife of Andrew Peddy; Amanda Price, wife of James Price; A. E. Bray; Sam Bray; G. B. Bray; a son William Bray died in 1879 leaving his widow (p 60) Adaline Bray and children Maggie and James Bray.   S. Polk Bray had sold his interest to John M Taylor. A. E. Bray sold his interest to Ellen and Mollie Bray. The court ordered the 6 tracts of land sold for the benefits of the heirs. On July 17 1880 the Bray land was sold at the residence of Elijah Bray, widower of Elizabeth Bray of Civil District 4 in Henderson Co TN.   81 acres sold to J. M. Taylor for $100. 112 acres sold to J. M. Taylor for $100. The other acreage, 321 acres designated as the "old homestead" found no bidders. The heirs believed that better bids could be obtained for the land and the court ordered a rebidding of the tracts.     [In 2000 this land is in Chester Co TN on the Rabbit Ranch Road.]
      In the 1880's in Chancery Court Minutes, Book 8, in Henderson Co TN there are court records:     BRAY, A. E. and others vs SALLIE PEDDY and others 74, 75, 158, 159, 160, 161, 278, 279, 280, 299, 300, 301, 373-376.       PEDDY, SALLIE and others vs A. E.
