Here begins another story in the Journey of Life. Here I would rais
e a memorial, and say hitherto hath the Lord blessed me.
I desire here to statesomefacts that may be of interest to my children a
bout myself. I was born in Buckingham County, State of
Virginia, on the 24th of June, 1818. My Father was Glover Johns and m
y Mother, Martha Jones. My Grandparents on both sides
lived in the same part of Virginia. My Father was a Planter all of hi
s life. He commenced life poor, but by industry acquired
considerable property for that poor country. In person he waslarge an
d had Considerable energy and strong common sense. He had
great integrity of character byt made no pretension of religion. He wa
s an amiable man andindulgent tohis children and servents.
My Morhter was said to be a very pretty woman, when young. She was ver
y domestic and industrious in habits. She was of medium
height and inclined to be fleshy. She died when I was only about ten o
f age, in 1829. She was then about 43 yearsold. She was a
member of the Babtist Church and died a very happy death. There were fi
ve children of us. One died in infancy. Of the four who
survived, three were boys and only one daughter. The oldest was Frederi
ck, the next Alfred and then our sister Mary Elizabeth,
and I the youngest. My brothers and sister were well educated for tha
t day. My brother Alfred studied law and went to Mary and
Williams College. My oldest brother Frederick was never married and ha
d a delicate constitution, died of consumption
inMississippi in 1842 at the age of 36. He was man of great decision an
d purity of character. He was a very pious man and an
elder in the Presbyterian Church for many years. My Father sold his lan
d in Virginia and removed to the state of Tennessee in
1831. He had then about 70 negro slaves. He settled in the neighborhoo
d of Nashville, Tenn., and remained there two years.

The Campbell House recently received the
donation of a sterling silver pitcher that Hugh
Campbell had given as a gift.
The pitcher was a wedding gift from Hugh to
Christine Orrick and William Fordyce in 1902.
Christine’s brother, Allen Cromwell Orrick, was
Hugh Campbell’s attorney from 1897 to 1931.
Allen Orrick’s father, John C. Orrick, also
practiced law in St. Louis.
The pitcher dates from the 1870s, indicating
that it may originally have been a piece of
Campbell family silver.
The pitcher was donated by Elizabeth Russe
Fordyce, Christine and William’s daughter-inlaw,
and can be seen on display in the Museum's

John Johns and Elizabeth (Winston) lived at New Store, Buckingham Co., V
Mrs. Parrish with whom Anne corresponded has some old silver marked John

She said that John Johns was three times married. His first wife was Mi
ss Gorden. His second wife was Polly Elizabeth Winston.
His third wife was the widow of Judge Manley.
According to information I got from papers left there by Winston Johns
, John Johns(b. 1746-d.1822), married Elizabeth Winston
and later a Glover, who was the widow of Judge Manley. (but then why i
s one of Elizabeth's sons named Glover ??? --sdc)
and yet again:
Also, though there is no proof, the Johns family came to Va. in 1660, an
ne commented that plenty of people came in that year of
the restoration of Charles II.
In a letter that Grandpa Johns (J.J.J.??) wrote to a relative, Mrs. Mar
y Rice of Huntsville, Ala., he speaks of his Grandmother
Johns, 'who was a Glover.' However in Winston's paper, I found that 'Jo
hn Johns b. 1746-d.1821 married Elizabeth Winston in 1765.
Since she was living at the time of Glover Johns' birth in 1769, she mus
t have been the one of the 3 wives who was his mother.
If, as is stated, John Johns married a Glover afterward, why name a so
n of Elizabeth Winston Glover? Ann must have seen these
notes in the Johns history and did not mention the difference in the rec
Grandpa Johns, in a letter to Mrs. Rice, said that his uncle, John Johns
, married Polly Winston, daughter of Judge Winston. Is
this a mistake or is this another Polly Winston. He said in this lette
r that he knew Edmund Winston very well and also Tom
Winston. Also he saw Isaac when he was boy in Va. He spoke of his fier
ce black crossed eyes!
