"1840's Davis-West House opens to public on Saturday mornings"
This house was originally built by John Davis. House is listed on National
Register of Historic Places.
Mr Slade West bequeathed the house to the Chipola Historical Trust, Inc
upon his demise in 1996 to be used as a museum of regional history.
The house contains the furnishings that belonged to Slade's parents,
Confederate surgeon Dr. Theophilus West and Louise Slade West, including a room full of
furnishings from St. Elmo plantation near Columbus, Ga, where Mrs West
spent her childhood.
Also, I failed to add that the house is located in Marianna, Jackson

Another Post...concerns a letter that we have in our archives written by
B.J. Pridgen to a cousin in Creek, NC...Iwonder if this is Town Creek, NC.
I remember posting this letter with some trepidation since it was so flawed
in its data. It is so difficult to change people's mind once they see
something in print.
The letter states,
“...There was a Tom Pridgen, who settled near a place called
Taliafero in Georgia about the year 1775 or 76...I am unable to
learn where he came from, tho I feel
certain he was perhaps an older or younger brother of Drew
Pridgen, the father of Hardy. In fact, it may have been the father
of Drew. He left in Taliafero a son by name of Tom, who raised
a son by name of John, who emigrated and settled in
Florida near Quincy."
This researcher points out the following facts:
#1 Taliaferro was not organized as a county until 1825
#2 There is a William Pridgen in Wilkes Co GA 1784, but no Tom
#3 There were brothers Tom, William, and Drew, but not all in GA so early,
(CPM....THOMAS AND DREWRY NEVER LEFT NC...WILLIAM, SON OF WILLIAM (D. 1762)
DID LEAVE NC
#4 There was a Tom Pridgen in TELFAIR [not Telaferro] GA in 1820. This
Tom was born ca 1780-1785.
#5 This same Tom did indeed move to Jackson Co FL and is on the 1830
#6 This Tom Pridgen did have sons John and Thomas.
(SO THAT PART OF THE SENATOR'S LETTER IS INCORRECT (CPM))
The Ralph book by Carson lists the family of William II, and Sarah Waller.
Carson does not list Thomas as a son. They were said to have married Dec
1780. That gives a perfect time slot for Thomas [1780-85] to be their son.
list begins with a daughter Harriet, birth year unknown.
The Carson book has the William Pridgen family moving to Georgia about a
decade later than the Senator's estimate.
Some things fit, but not all.
"All we know for sure is that John G. Pridgen (da 1818 GA) lived
and died in Henry Co AL. He married in Henry Co in 1836
Bethany CASITY. Printed sources show Carity, but
a copy of the old handwritten document from microfilm and It is
unmistakeably CASITY. "There are no Carity families that I
can find in any state, but there are Casity, Cassady, etc families
in Henry Co AL at the time."
Thomas Pridgen, 1830 census of adjoining Jackson Co FL, lived
within 2 miles of the lands patented by John G. Pridgen after he
had his own family. The township T7N RllW overlaps the Alabama
Florida state line. John G. lived in AL, Tom 2 miles away in Florida.
I have plotted the township map, neighbors, etc. since Tom did not
own land, and can tell which neighbors he lived between, per census.
Thomas was the only Pridgen man in the area
as early as 1830. He did have males of the ages of a Thomas and
a John G. Not proof of paternity, but a very strong circumstance,
and does agree with the Senator's letter."
NEXT LETTER....A STRONG ARGUMENT .....
"The Tom who came to GA in 1775 or 76 probably should
be William instead of Tom. Otherwise, the lineage seems
OK, since Tom was in Telfair early 1800s, on census 1820,
and in Florida 1830. This Tom did indeed have a son Tom
and another son John G.
The Senator seems to have some info on brothers Tom and
Drew, but this cannot be the same Tom. Since there was
a William in GA, (Wilkes Co Papers) who signed a Petition
in 1784, this William seems to be a more likely candidate for
Carson makes no mention of William's having a son Tom. But
the Waller genealogy fails to mention Sophia as a daughter,
according to Carson. If one case is possible, why not more
cases of family histories with missing names?"

In my case, the shoe was on the other foot:
Long ago (Summer '56) and far away (Jacksonville,
FL) before I had completely failed out of Pharmacy
school, I worked at Hugh Sellers Pharmacy under
the benevolent patronage of Doug Owens.
Mr. Owens encouraged and enabled me to do a bit of
everything that could be done at his pharmacy. On
alternate days, I opened and closed the premises and
initialized the cash registers. Under the watchful eye
of Mr. Grindstaff (what a glorious name for a pharmacist
who had 11 children), I counted pills and poured liquids
from big bottles into little bottles. I helped manage the
inventory and sometimes I took phone-orders.
It was in the middle of a phone order that a women
customer asked for a box of chartreuse Tampax.
Of course I knew that Tampax came in various sizes
and that the boxes were color-coded by size. But
none of the boxes was remotely chartreuse. I asked
her to repeat the last item again. And again. And
each time she clearly stated that she wanted
In desperation, I transferred the call to a female
employee who immediately understood that the
customer wanted chartreuse Tin-Tex, a package
of do-it-yourself dye.
For years afterwards, whenever I went to Sellers
Pharmacy, the staff asked me if I needed any
