MotherMary Anne Quinn1 b. 1735, d. 1796
     George Alcorn was born, March 25, 1760 near the mouth of the Pee Dee River in Fairfield Co, South Carolina. George was a veteran of the Revolutionary War, and served from South Carolina in 1780-1781. He received pension #S31516 for his service, while living in Indiana. He married Elizabeth ? in South Carolina and they moved to Clay Co, Kentucky . They possibly were the parents of 12 children. All of their children were married in Clay County. George died Dec 27, 1833 in Bartholomeau Indiana. Elizabeth apparently died after 1833.

George probably moved from South Carolina to what is present day Clay Co, Kentucky, which was still in Virginia, about 1788. When Clay Co, Kentucky was formed from Madison Co, in 1807, George was already there and paying taxes on 1,000 acres of land. In 1815 George and his son William and Robert are in Clay Co. By 1819 William and his wife Debby are living at Station Camp Creek in Estill Co, Kentucky. In 1824 they are back in Clay Co, on Sturgeon Creek.

George, William, and Robert are shown to be in Bartholomeau, Indiana sometime after the late 1820's. George died in Indiana in 1833 and William and Debby moved back to Estill Co, Kentucky shortly thereafter, but; not for long.

They went back to Sturgeon Creek again and remained until Debby's father John Phillips died in 1836. In 1837 William and Debby once more moved back to Estill Co, for the last time.

George Alcorn, in a statement contained in his Revolutionary War Pension records, states that "On this 13th day of March 1833, personally appeared in open court before the PresIdent and Associate Judges of the Circuit Court of and for the County of Bartholornew now sitting, George Alcorn, a resident of Bartholomew County and the State of Indiana, age seventy two years, on the 25th of LAST MARCH"--. (emphasis added by author) This statement would confinn his birthdale of March 25, 1760. He further states that he has no records of his birth but that he was born in North Carolina and moved to the Fairfield District of South Carolina. That after his war time service he again resided in the Fairfield Disuict and that after the Revolution he moved to Kentucky. He resided in Kentucky for some lime then moved to Bartholomew County in the Stale of Indiana.

George Alcom enlisted in the Revolutionary War f~ces from South Carolina in 1780 in Fairfield County. His Revolutionary War pension number is S31516. He received notes from his officers attesting to his service as a private This indebtedness from the Stale was later collected by his father, Robert, in April 1788 by way of a transfer note from George to Robert. The note was notarized by George's superior Offlcers during the war. A statement from the Revolutionary War Pension Roll of 1835 shows that he was drawing a pension allowance of 27 67 annually for service as a private in the South Carolina State Militia. He was placed on the pension roll March 5, 1834 and his pension commencement date was March 4, 1831. His age was listed as 74 when he was placed on that particular roll As that pension record shows no sums of money collected, his death in 1833 would have prevented that from happening.

Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution lists his service as follows: Enlisted Fairfield District of South
Carolina Volunteered 1780 in militia under Captain Thomas Hanna, served 10 days. 1781, under Captain Thomas
and Colonel Hammond, served 2 months, went to Augusta. Later served 3 months under Captain Davis. Fought at the Battle of Fish-Dam Ford and at the seige of Augusta. During 1782 he was in the Command of Colonel Winn.

His statement in his pension records lists his service as follows. He joined as a volunteer in the Fairfield Disuict of South Carolina a militia company commanded by Captain Thomas Hanna. This company with other forces under the command of General Thomas Sumpter (Sumter) fought at the battle of fish dam. (Fishdam Ford November 9, 1780 Major James Wemyss commanding 40 members of Tarleton's Legion and 100 mounted infantry tried to surprise Sumter's camp on the Broad River at the Fishdam Ford. The British attacks were unsucessful and Wemyss was wounded and four of his troops were killed. This led to an attack eleven days later at Blackslock's in the Spartan District commanded by Tarleton himself against the forces under Sumter. This was another British defeat. Page 129, 130 of Partisans and Redcoats.) George Alcorn states that before his company marched to Blackstock he received a parole discharge and that his service was not more than ten days. Other officers he mentioned were Col. Lacey (Edward Lacey), Col. Bratton (William Bratton), and Col Hopkins.

He then states that afterwards he again entered the service of the United States as a volunteer in a company commanded by Captain Thomas of the militia and that superior officers were General Pickens (Andrew Pickens of upper South Carolina), Col Hammond and Major Middleton. He states they marched from Horns Creek ? , South Carolina to Augusta where they remained during the seige of that place. (A brief history of this seige is as follows General Pickens was given command of the militia and was ordered to move on Augusta, Georgia in May of 1781. Lt. Colonel "Lighthorse" Harry Lee was ordered by General Nathanial Greene to join Pickens at Augusta and on May 21st Lee captured Fort Galphin which was located below Augusta. On June 5, 1781 the combined forces of militia from North and South Carolina and Continentals attacked and captured Fort Grierson which was one of two forts in the defence line at Augusta. The American Army now turned to the last fort, Cornwallis, which was in the center of the town of Augusta and forced the garrison there to surrender also on June 5th thus ending the seige. See pages 417 to 422 of the book "North Carolina 1780-1781" ) After the seige George came down with small pox and Captain Thomas gave him a written discharge which he has lost. He served about two months during this, his second period of service.

After his recovery from the small pox he was drafted in the Fairfield District for a term of three months in the militia company of Captain Davis. He remembers the superior officers to be General Sumter, Colonel Hopkins and Major Pierson. His company marched to Orangeburg where they went into winter quarters. After his term of service was up he was given an honorable discharge at that place which he has also lost.

He had returned again to the Fairfield District where he was again drafted for three months and assigned to the company of Captain Davis then commanded by a Lt. Vaughan. Superior officers as he recalls were General Henderson and Henderson's aide Withers. The troops were marched from Orangeburg to "illegible" but probably the Four Hole Swamp River and then they were marched back by Orangeburg to the three forks of the Edisto River. At that place he was again discharged by Captain Hammon but is unable to give the day and the year of his last term of service. He had also lost that discharge..3 He died on 27 December 1833 at Columbus, Bartholomew County, Indiana, at age 73; Valesca has 27 Mar 1833.1,3,2 He was buried at West of, Columbus, Bartholomew County, Indiana.3

Elizabeth Sol1,2

F, b. 1767, d. between 1835 and 1839
     Elizabeth Sol was born in 1767 at North Carolina; Brandenburgs has 1762; I have [Gary June 2005] guessed 1767 because of birth of George in 1810.3 She was born before 1770 at Kentucky; then Kentucky County Virginia; Fish has before 1770.1,4 As of circa 1783,her married name was Alcorn.1 She married George Randolph Alcorn, son of Robert Robin Alcorn and Mary Anne Quinn, circa 1783 at Fairfield County, South Carolina; Brandenburg's has 1785 and does not have Mary as daughter.1,3 Elizabeth was the spouse of George Randolph Alcorn when he immigrated in 1788. Sometime between 1786 and 1790 he moved from South Carolina to Kentucky probably in 1788 with his father, Robert and [some] other members of the Alcorn family. [Some members stayed in South Carolina] (Fish Kidwell Family Roots; Brandenburg's says "George probably moved from South Carolina to what is present day Clay County Kentucky, which was still in Virginia, about 1788.")
.4,3 Elizabeth was probably a free white female, age 60 and under 70, in George Randolph Alcorn's household, on the 1830 Census at Bartholomew County, Indiana; George Allcorn [sic] 1 male 20-29; 1 male 70-79; 1 female 60-69.5 Elizabeth Sol died between 1835 and 1839 at Bartholomew County, Indiana.4

     Robert Alcorn was born in 1768 at Yadkin Valley, Rowan County, North Carolina; Alcorn (Valesca's Genealogy Notes) has birth PeeDee River, Fairfield District, Anderson County, South Carolina.1,2 He married Mary "Polly" Elledge in 1796 at Boones Station, Pike County, Kentucky.1,2 In 1801 he is shown as owning 150 acres which he had purchased from Martin and Todd. Robert Alcom has 100 acres on Jessamine Creek from D. Boone at this time.

In 1805 George brought the original deed for the 150 acres of land from Martin and Todd before the Jessamine County Court. This deed was originally filed in Lincoln County, Kentucky and possession of this property was proven by David Baker and A. Price. Jessamine County was evidently part of Lincoln County when George purchased it and would make the purchase sometime before February of 1799. This land was on Hickman Creek in Jessamine County. Jessamine County Deed Book B, page 158, December 10, 1805.

The 1802-1806 tax lists for Jessamine County, Kentucky show George with 150 acres of land, Robert with 100 acres and William with none.
between 1801 and 1806 at Jessamine County, Kentucky.3 They resided at Clay County, Kentucky, in 1815.4 He witnessed an unknown person 's death at Kentucky in September 1824.1,2 He married Frances ? at Kentucky in 1825.1,2 Robert Alcorn died on 26 August 1831 at New Hartford, Pike County, Illinois.1

Error corrections or clarifications

* Many sources erroneously report Senator James Alcorn died "December 19, 1894." It was actually at 12:55 a.m., on December 20th, 1894, that he passed away.

** Note that sources are divided over whether the Senator married Amelia Walton Glover December 17th, or the 19th. Some marriage records indicate the 17th, while personal papers from the Alcorn family designate the 19th as the correct date.


Biography

In 1836, after attending Cumberland College, in Princeton, Kentucky for less than a year, James Lusk Alcorn left to try his hand at teaching in Jackson, Arkansas. Not finding educational instruction to his liking, he returned to Kentucky and became deputy sheriff of Lexington County, under his uncle, Sheriff Randolph W. Alcorn. His marriage to Mary Catherine Stewart took place in 1839, and produced two sons and a daughter. He got his first taste of statewide politics while serving in the Kentucky state House of Representatives in 1843. Seeking his fortune, in 1844 he packed up his young family and headed south. They settled in Coahoma County, Mississippi, where he set up his law practice and began accumulating property. Before he was finished, he owned twenty thousand acres of land. His wife Mary died in childbirth in 1849. The following year he married Amelia Walton Glover. 2 sons and 4 daughters resulted from that union.

The owner of dozens of slaves, J. L. Alcorn served as a Confederate Militia Brigadier General for 18 months during the U.S. Civil War, but reportedly hated military life and returned to his plantation. During the war, his son Henry Lusk Alcorn died while returning home, en route from Richmond, of complications from typhoid fever. His son Milton Stewart Alcorn was also a Civil War veteran, and returned from the war with a permanent hearing injury. Following the war, Milton took to drinking heavily, and later committed suicide.

While a strong believer in white supremacy, following the war, James Alcorn did support civil and political rights for African-Americans. Alcorn was founder of the Mississippi levee system and was made president of the levee board of the Mississippi-Yazoo Delta in 1858. He was principally responsible for legislation establishing the levee system which protected Mississippi with hundreds of miles of levees.

For the next three decades, he served in the Mississippi state Senate (1848-54), Mississippi state House of Representatives (1846, 1856-57 and 1865), while continuing his prosperous law practice at the law firm of Alcorn, Stricklin and Harman.

Following his resignation from Alcorn, Stricklin and Harman in 1869, he briefly served as Governor of Mississippi (1870-71), then as U.S. Senator (1871-77).

As the political landscape changed, so did Alcorn. Some considered it rather disingenuous that he switched parties as many times as he did whenever it might prove advantageous to his political career. Others argued that it was the political parties who'd abandoned their core values, forcing the moves. He was an ardent Whig as long as that political party existed, and helped found the Union Party composed of Whigs and Union-Democrats. He later moved over to the Republican Party while Governor of Mississippi and as U.S. Senator.

Following his retirement from public life, Alcorn lived quietly at his palatial plantation home. In 1879 he built the three-story, twenty-two room Victorian mansion named "Eagle's Nest" near Jonestown, in Coahoma County. In 1886, he suffered the first of a series of stokes that eventually left him confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of his life.


Sources

More than two dozen sources were consulted in preparing this profile.
The most in-depth of these was the 1966 biography, James Lusk Alcorn: Persistent Whig, by Lillian A. Pereyra.2 ALCORN, James Lusk, was born near Golconda, Ill., Nov. 4 1816; early went South and held various offices in Kentucky and Mississippi, including member of the Legislature in each; was a member of the Mississippi State Conventions of 1851 and 1861, and by the latter appointed but refused a commission by Jefferson Davis because his fidelity to the rebel cause was doubted. At the close of the war he was one of the first to accept the reconstruction policy; was elected United States Senator from Mississippi in 1865, but not admitted to his seat. In 1869 he was chosen Governor as a Republican, and two years later elected United States Senator, serving until 1877. Died, Dec. 20, 1894.

Joshua Laurence Champion1

M, b. 5 October 1814, d. 12 January 1868
     Joshua L. Champion owned a fairly large plantation on the Mississippi River just across from Helena Ark. He had many slaves and they lived very comfortably until the Civil war. In the summer during the war they had their horses and stock in the woods near the river to hid them from the Federal solders. They hung the hams in the trees and buried the silver. In the winter hiding places were more difficult to find. When the soldiers came through taking anything and everything they could find, they often left the family hard pressed to find enough food for themselves and slaves.

"When the Emancipation Proclamation was issued many slaves deserted, but there were many others who stayed until Joshua's death and a few went to KY to the Champions there.

The Battle of Champion Hill was fought, May 16, 1863. McGinnis in command of the Federals==Pemberton of the Confederates. The latter were on the hill, half a mile from the Champion house. The Federals stopped at the house. One of the guns was planted by the smoke house and fighting was thickest among the Negro cabins.

The field was literally covered with hundreds of the dead and dying and debris of cannons, guns and horses. The trees shot down or topped by shots-- Many of the officers were taken to the house and the family and servants were forced to give them quarters, but the officers were civil and the women treated with respect. But the house, Negro quarters and land itself was badly damaged. The Feds. took all the good horses, even the chickens and turkeys were eaten. The house was ramshackle. An amusing incident- a soldier caught a turkey, tied it to a gun caisson and when the battle was over the turkey was still alive. The soldier and a few officers ate it at their next meal. It was a decided Federal victory." Written by Nelle Champion McCabe and Fannie Champion Massie.1 Joshua Laurence Champion was also known as Joshua Chapman.2 He was born on 5 October 1814 at Livingston County, Kentucky.2,1,3 He married Caroline Lucinda Alcorn at Livingston County, Kentucky, on 10 December 1839.2,1 Joshua Laurence Champion was census 1850 - free on 19 September 1850 at Coahoma County, Mississippi; 70 70 Joshua Champion 32 male farmer 1000 KY; Caroline Champion 25 female KY; George Champion 10 male KY; Mary Champion 7 female KY; [next page] James Champion 4 male MS; Julia Champion 3 female MS; Nortense Champion 10/12 female MS.4 He died on 12 January 1868 at Mahaska County, Iowa, at age 53.3
