Judge John Samuel Bentley1

M, b. 13 July 1829, d. 25 January 1892
  • Last Edited: 11 Jun 2019
  • (Child) Birth*: 13 July 1829; Elbert Co., Georgia; son of Hiram Bentley & Lavicie Bentley (also her maiden name)
  • Marriage*: 6 November 1850; Coosa Co., Alabama; Principal=Sarah Catherine Suttle2
  • (head of family) 1870 Census*: 1 June 1870; Rockford, Coosa Co., Alabama3
  • (Groom) Marriage*: 30 May 1877; Bride=Elizabeth Pennington4
  • (head of family) 1880 Census*: 1 June 1880; Rockford, Coosa Co., Alabama; Wife=Elizabeth Pennington5
  • (Deceased) Death*: 25 January 1892; Rockford, Coosa Co., Alabama
  • (Interred) Burial*: say 28 January 1892; Rockford Cemetery, Rockford, Coosa Co., Alabama
  • Biography*: John S. Bentley was the son of Hiram (Bentley) and Lavicie Bentley (She was also a Bentley), who came early to Alabama from Georgia, settling in the western part of Chambers (County), and moving from there in 1844 to Coosa (County) , a few miles west of Nixburg. He was a farmer in easy circumstances, a good citizen, a member of the Baptist Church, and much esteemed for his solid virtues. John was born in Georgia, about 1830, reaching his majority in Coosa, and commenced life for himself by teaching. He was a warm advocate of the temperance cause, during the temperance reformation going on about 1847 to 1854. In 1850, he married Sarah C., the oldest daughter of Judge I. W. Suttle, at Rockford. Both of them joined the Baptist Church at Rockford at its organization, 1850. About 1852 he studied medicine, and went into the water cure practice at Robinson Springs, Dadesville, and Rockford successively. In 1855 he bought and went on a farm just west of Rockford, and added to it from time to time, living upon it until his death. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and Chapter. Mr. Bentley wrote in the offices about Rockford at different times. He also held several minor offices. When Joseph Taylor resigned the Circuit Clerkship in April 1869, Bentley was appointed to the vacancy, holding till elected Judge of Probate in (this part faded and hard to read) and was in office when he died January 1892. He was faithful to every trust.

    No man has done more to promote education, religion, morals, and the general good of the County than Judge Bentley, and no man has commanded more love and esteem of his fellow citizens. He was helpful even at personal sacrifice. Largely liberal and hospitable, his house for many years was a free hotel, and seldom did his family, for many years sit down to their meals alone, but with from two to ten or more visitors to share with them. These visitors were drawn alone by the bountiful repast furnished, but fully as much by the genial welcome and charm of the family circle. It was no wonder that his death was felt to be a public calamity, and was so sincerely mourned. He sleeps with his loved ones, and parents on both sides, in the cemetery of the church of which he and they were so long strong pillars. He had a good helper, especially in later years, in Thomas S. McDonald, and the two did much to make Rockford a desirable place to live or visit. They will live in the hearts of the people for many years to come.

    Bentley and his first wife raised six sons and three daughters. William lives on the home farm; Rufus is in Texas; Judge A. D. is a merchant at Rockford; S. M. is a merchant at Troy; Osceola P. is a minister at Vincent; J. Samuel is a teacher at Buyckville. The oldest daughter, Mary, married T. J. Pennington who has been prominent in the county since the close of the war as teacher, County Superintendent, public spirited man, and a Christian gentleman. He and his noble wife, like Judge Bentley, have kept also a free hotel, where a cordial hospitality has been extended to the members who have shared it. He has been a ready helper in every good work. The second daughter, Emma, married William T. Stewman, a teacher and preacher now living at Warm Springs, Talladega. Sadie, the youngest daughter, married Walter Looney, a successful teacher at Hanover. The two older, Mary and Emma, are dead and sleep side by side at the old church they loved. These daughters, like their mother and grandmothers, threw a charm around their home and church lives that will not be forgotten by any who came in touch with them. Their death came before the meridian of life was reached but they had lived long enough to be esteemed members in the church, and when lost was irreparable.

    Judge Bentley married for a second wife Mrs. Elizabeth Phillips, a sister of Mr. Pennington. By this marriage there were no children. She did not long survive the judge, and also sleeps near the church she loved6

GINN'S Dist., #230, Dist 1, Sect 1, Lee Co., Ga.) James, one of the executors of his father's will, was named to receive one slave, bed and yoke of oxen (total $770), and was one of the buyers at the estate sale. James was a resident of Greenville, Meriwether Co., in 1860, when recorded on the census as farmer (real estate $8,000, personal property $8,000). On 16 Nov. 1865, LEVI M. ADAMS received temporary Letters of Administration to the estate of James A. Jeter (Meriwether Co. 4-197), and a few days later Adams and TABITHA JETER were named as permanent administrators. An inventory and application to sell property were noted (4-198) and Tabitha, as widow with six children, was given a year's provision (4-205); JAMES W. WOODRUFF was appointed guardian of THOMAS F. JETER, minor son of James A. Jeter, decd. (4-211). On 5 Nov. 1866, Letters of Administration to estate of Tabitha Jeter, decd., were recorded for JAMES M. ARRINGTON and FRANCES L. JETER (4-228), and orders were given to sell perishable estate (4-233). On 21 Jan. 1868, JAMES M. ARRINGTON received Letters of Adminstration to the estate of GEORGIA R. JETER, decd., and also was named as guardian of MARTHA L. JETER, minor child of James A. and Tabitha Jeter, both decd. (4-278). The administrator settled the estate in May 1869 (4-323), and in Mar. 1871 JAMES M. ARRINGTON was recorded as guardian of LULA JETER, "she being over 14 and made her own selection" (4-384)..

  • Research Note*: 17 October 2018; From: Derald Everhart:

    Hi Derald,
         Unfortunately I discovered my Beall connection rather late in life, having proven it only with the help of DNA evidence. So I have not done any original research on the family. The only probate record I have for Thaddeus is just an inventory of his estate, which lists the items he owned, but not any relatives who might have purchased the items. It can be found at:
    https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G935-VVHR?i=153&wc=9SBM-PT5%3A267818601%2C267848501&cc=1999178
         One would think that if there were an inventory, there should be other estate records as well. I have not personally located them. My list of his children includes only those to whom I have an autosomal DNA connection, through the AncestryDNA test. If there is an authoritative list of his children, I’m not aware of it, although many supposed children can be found on the internet. I do not know the original source of this information about his various children.
         I do wish you luck with your research, and if you are able to prove your connection to Thaddeus, I would enjoy hearing about it. I do believe the line you mention belongs to Thaddeus, but I don’t have definitive proof.
    Best,

    Mr. Griffin,

    Looking for copy or web location of probate records mentioned in your research on Family Search that ties Leathe Beall to her father.

    My mother's mother was a Pennington and I'm trying to trace her line back to Maryland. Her father was James Frederick Pennington, son of Frederick Cowart Pennington, who was the son of Frederick Will Frederick.

  • Biography*: 17 October 2018; b. Prince Georges Co, Md, before formation of Frederick County in 1748; moved to Guilford Co., North Carolina [there 1790] then to Georgia, d. Warren Co., Georgia 1815. He m. in Frederick Co. his first cousin Amelia Jane Beall, (B-ALEX-231-6), dau of Samuel Beall, Jr, & Eleanor Brooke, b. 1747, Washington Co., MD, d. after 1812, Hagerstown, Washington Co, MD. She inherited resurvey on Good Will, called Millseat, running through a stream called North West Branch." "Records of deeds executed by Thaddeus indicate that he and Amelia lived as "Planters" in that part of Frederick County which became Montgomery County in 1776...thus the same general area as their parents." (McLean, p 28). 28 Aug 1772 Thaddeus Beall of Fred Co for ú100 conveys lot in town of Frederick to Jacob Hesse. (FCLO U3). In Continental Army, 1776; in corresp of the Maryland council of Safety, a 2nd Lieutenant in the Company of Captain Edward Burgess, Wednesday Jul 3, 1776. In 1777,1778 deeds, lived Montgomery Co. 12 Apr 1777 Thaddeus Beall, late of Fred but now of Montg Co, to John Gilbert, late of Fred but now of Montg, merchant in Georgetown, Lot #10 for ú255. Amelia, wife, waived dower. (MCLO A:38) 12 May 1777 Thaddeus aptd Captain (Archives of Md 16:373) "By November 20, 1779, a Montgomery County deed recites them to be 'of Guilford County, North Carolina." Amelia's sister Verlinda & brother in law William Dent accompanied them to NC. In 1790 Census, Guilford County, NC. 1794 moved to Greene County, Georgia; lived Warren County, GA at Thaddeus' death.

    Walter V. Beall GEDCOM file:

    Thaddeus lived in what is now Montgomery County Maryland. On July 3, 1776 he was commissioned 2nd Lieut. in the Frederick County Militia. On August 7th, he was in Captain Burgess' Company, Lower District of Frederick County. In September he was Brigade Major for General Rezin Beall (a distant cousin) at Flying Camp, Maryland. Thaddeus was listed on October 2nd as 2nd Lieut. Montgomery County Militia, and was shown as 1st Lieut. in the 29th Battalion on January 21, 1777. He was Captain, Lower Battalion, Maryland Line on September 12th.
    Thaddeus moved to Guilford County, North Carolina, where on 18 Aug 1784 he purchased 400 acres from Henry C Davis for 100 pounds, which he sold on 23 Aug 1785 to Thomas Landwith for 100 pounds after obtaining 800 acres of land grants. These land grants were given at the rate of 50 shillings per 100 acres. Thaddeus received the following Grants: 8 Nov 1784 Grant #1078 for 500 acres and #962 for 300 acres; 6 May 1787 Grant # 1415 for 300 acres; and 16 May 1787 Grants #1234, 1267, and 1315 for 300 acres each.

    He sold 243 acres of this land on 10 March 1788 and sold the remaining land in five transactions beginning 12 July 1791, and ending 21 November 1791, after which he must have made his move to Georgia. The 1790 Census showed him in Guilford County with a family of 1 man, 4 boys, 6 females, and 12 slaves. Since there are a large number of marriages between Bealls and Dents, it should be noted that much of Thaddeus's land lay next to that of William Dent. There was also a Peter Dent in Guilford County in the late 1700's.. Thaddeus served on a Guilford County jury during the May 29, 1787 court session.

    Thaddeus's sons Frederick, Thaddeus, and William settled in Franklin County, Georgia, where Frederick was Clerk of Ordinary (Probate) Judge from 24 July 1799 through 1825. But it appears that Thaddeus settled in Warren County. A three page inventory of his estate dated 5 July 1808, with a total worth of $4989.42 1/2 was found in the court house in Warrenton. He is also listed on a DAR Plaque at the court house, nameing the Rev. soldiers buried in Warren County. The DAR lists his death as 1815, which must be incorrect in view of the inventory of his estate.
