Surname: Stanford, Elliott, Sellers, Sheppard, Dukes

Would the Stanford family of which you speak be immigrants into Henry County from the present northern portion of Clay County, Georgia, north of Ft. Gaines, as per new county lines last set in 1855? This is the Cotton Hill and Day's Crossroads area and was in Randolph County in 1850.

Elbert Elliott and his wife, Elizabeth Stanford, both born in Georgia circa 1822, moved into the Camp Springs area of Henry County in 1855 with other Elliott families and those of Day, Henderson, Davis, Glover, Hobbs, Pearce, and others.

According to the 1850 United States Census of Randolph County, Alabama, Elbert and Elizabeth had living with them two women, Kisire or Kissie Stanford born circa 1770 and Martha Stanford born about 1810. I have been told this was Elizabeth Stanford Elliott's mother and an aunt or sister. From other research in Randolph County, it is written that both moved with Elbert and Elizabeth to Camp Springs, but later returned before the War of Southern Independence 1861-1865 to Clay County.

Children of the Elliott-Stanford couple living in Henry County in 1860
were:
M.C.            female          age 16  born Georgia
F. E.           female          age 14  born Georgia
Elbert          male            age 7   born Georgia
Eliza           female          age 5   born Georgia
Martha J.       female          age 6 mo. born Georgia

Also living in the household was William Sheppard, age 20, and Matthew Sellers, 17, both working on the Elliott Plantation. (Elbert and his brothers Jim and Ira settled 1,500 acres of land in 1855!) Another "domestic worker" was J. Dukes, a 21 year old female.

Childre of the couple, Elbert and Eliza, had attended school that year.
There is evidence that a school existed at Camp Springs (by another name)
as early as 1855 and lasted to around 1940, nearly 100 years of education in this rural area.

All of this was in Beat #3, Post Office Columbia, July 13, 1860. This was before other post offices were established in the area. The Elliott
Plantation had the Columbia to Abbeville Road running through it that was an Ancient One's trading path and a settler's road by 1826 thanks to the locally famous road builders Daniel and Matthew Jackson who settled just west of this community on "Jackson Creek".

Circa 1867, Elbert Elliott killed his brother Ira Elliott in a Main Street
brawl/showdown during the turbulent Reconstruction years in the South when the North yielded much, much hardship and punishment upon the South under military rule until 1874. Elbert returned to the Plantation at Camp Springs and summoned my great-great-grandfather, Davis Andrew Jackson Elliott, a Confederate veteran, and his young son, Seabron Jackson "Seabe" Elliott.
Grandpa Jack and Uncle Seabe rode one mule and Grandpa Jack's Uncle Elbert another. They fled through Henry County and crossed the Chattahoochee River at the 1840 wooden covered bridge. Young Uncle Seabe rode Elbert's mule back to the farm. Records in the Clay County, Georgia (Ft. Gaines) courthouse
show that Elbert Elliott borrowed $300.00 from a Stanford in 1867. Elbert fled northward, some say to Penn. and others say Michigan, where he then summoned his family staying in a cloak of silence by the members of the old Scottish Clan Elliott of the old Fighting Border Clans of the Middle
March of Scotland. My eldest great aunt, Claudia Ann Elliott, born in 1888, wife of Columbus "Lum" Howard, corresponded with Elbert's family until around 1910 when the correspondence broke off.

The era was hard on Grandpa Jack. His brother-in-law, Harrison Shadrick, husband of his sister Frances Jane Elliott, was wounded at the Battle of Iuka, Mississippi September 19, 1862. Harrison died of those wounds in a Yankee Prison Hospital on October 5, 1862. He was buried with 263 other Southern Patriots at the edge of a slave cemetery in a mass grave in a space about 15' x 6'. On April 26, 1863, Jim Elliott, Grandpa Jack's father,
died at Camp Springs. Grandpa went AWOL, leaving his baby brother at the siege of Vicksburg to settle his father's affairs. He was back and fought from Lookout Mountain, Atlanta, and Nashville. His baby brother, John Elbert Elliott, Sr. was captured December 16, 1864 at Nashville and suffered terribly at Camp Chase, Ohio-walking back to Henry County after the war and arriving many months after the war was over and all thinking him dead. All I can
say is they were TOUGH AS NAILS!!!!!...(and still are!)

Henry Countily Yours,
John Steven Elliott "Steve", Son of
John Elbert Elliott, III
