(3) 1.5a.9 Willis WOOLBRIGHT, s/o Nanie & Daniel Woolbright, Sr.
--------------------------------------------------------
Birth Date: 1824, Wilkes Co. Ga.
Death Date: 20 March 1864, home of Poss Newberry, Dawson, Terrell Co.
Ga.
Burial Place: Woolbright Plantation Cem. three miles Southeast of
Dawson.

Notes: Died 20 March 1864 from wounds received at the Battle of Ocean
Pond, Olustee, Florida. He and his brother, Washington, were heavily into
real estate trading in the pre-civil war era. In the Cannon history, it is
stated that Willis, llike his father-in-law owned no slaves and hired both
paid white and negro laborers. However, when the War came, Willis
joined with his neighbors to protect their way of life. He and brother
James D. enlisted in Co. C, 4th Georgia Cavalry. They were required to
provide their own horses and were paid 40 cents a day.
The first year of the War, he and a selected few, who knew the lay of
the land up thru Georgia and the Carolinas to Virginia acted as scouts,
carried messages and directed blockade runners to avoid areas where
Yankee spies were located. Early in 1863, Federal troops began moving
down the coast to Savannah and, after three attempts. were successful on
the fourth try to invade Jacksonville, Fla. with a plan to cut off beef and fiber
to the CSA northward and to seperate Florida from the South, physically
and politically.
Gen. Seymour's orders were to establish Federal control of the local
area and await re-supply and re-enforcement before becoming envolved
in any major engagements with CSA defenders. Southern Volunteer
forces begin to gather to evict the Northern forces. On 18 Feb, the General
was in Macclenny west of Jacksonville and upon hearing of CSA troops
convening at Lake City, elected to engage them before their number
increased. He advanced westward with 5500 troops, many of whom were
new recruits, with 16 Cannon. The CSA commander, BGen. Jseph
Finegan, elected to select his own battle ground and moved his forces to
Ocean Pond near Oluste. His command was slightly smaller than his
opponent but he had a swamp on either side of his line and some dug in
infantry firing pits along the railroad bordering the swamp and his flanks
covered by Cavalry. His pickets demonstrated in front of the Federal
forces luring them into his selected battle site. The Federals, having
marched thru soft sand all day, arrived at the line exhausted.
During this battle Willis was attached to Co. C, 28th Battalion Ga.
Heavy Siege Artillery. which was serving that day as infantry under the
command of Maj. A. Bonaud. The battle began at 1400 hr, 20 Feb 1864
with some 6500 USA vs. somewhat fewer CSA troops. The Federal
cannon were too close to the front line and many of their gunners were
soon dead from rifle fire. The ineaxperience Northern troops tried
movements thru the swamps and were soon out of supplies and cut to
ribbons by the more seasoned Southern troops. After three hours, the
Yankees gave way and fell back in full flight but the exhausted Southern
Cavalry did not press the attack forcefully and retired as darkness
descended. However, the Northern forces retired back to the protection of
the large ship-born guns at Jacksonville. The CSA lost over 960 troops
and the USA lost nearly twice that number.
The family history has Willis dying one month later of his wounds
suffered that day. He was in a military hospital for several weeks and then
had been sent home by train. He survived to reach the railroad station at
Dawson, Ga. but died on a buck-board wagon on the way to his
Chickasawhatchee Plantations about four miles southeast of Dawson.
Later information details that he suffered a shot that tore open his side
and shattered his hip joint; the rim of his wallet was driven into the bone.
Military surgeons made arrangements with his wife to have him sent him
to Dawson where old Dr. Cheatham, one of the few doctors left in the area
could care for him. Sara Elizabeth arranged with Miss Poss Newberry, a
local seamstree, who had a large house, for a room. Every effort was
made to save him but he died four days later.
He was buried in the family plot on his Chickasawachee Creek
plantation as was his brother, James Daniel and several others. The
cemetery was farmed over by subsequant owners and graves obscured.
Willis' re-located grave stone, in good condition, was discovered by the
hired hand of the then current owner several decades ago while cutting
brush in a copse of trees on a rise overlooking were the front door of his
plantation home would have been. Stones for the rest of the family
members have disappeared. The tombstone has him as a member of
Co. G. 2nd Ga. Cav. In the mid-90s, local family members moved his
stone to the Ceder Hill cemetery at Dawson for protection from farm
damage.

Spouse: Sarah Elizabeth Cannon
Birth Date: 17 May 1835, Meriwether Co. Ga.
Death Date: 19 June 1874, probably Lee Co. Ga.
Parents: Joshua Cannon (1795-1868) & Elizabeth Williamson Harris
(1799-1868)
Marriage: 20 April (May) 1858

Notes: After Willis died, Elizabeth operated her swampy, mosquito
infested farm on Chickasawachee (Kinchafoonee in some reports) Creek
SE of Dawson with former slaves - Susie; Squires [b. 1840] and Eliza
Woolbright [b. 1842] and their sons, John [b. 1865] and Willis [b.1868] and
probably Thomas Roberts as overseer. Mary Elizabeth and Daniel
Joshua were still small, money was worthless, and malaria common.
She died twelve years later in 1874. Her detailed family history is noted in
Our Grandmother, Sara Elizabeth Cannon, page 218a.

Woolbright , Jr. Birth: 1897 Place: probably at Jessup, Ga. Spouse: Hattie Givens Husbands Notes... Notes: Notes: The family oral history is that Jesse was a mulatto. His birthdate and place indicates that he was probably born on a Woolbright plantation in Lee, now Terrell County, Georgia. Daniel Woolbright (b. c1789 in Wilkes Co.), son of Jacob Woolbright, moved to Chichasawhatchee Village which was a few miles SE from the present city of Dawson and established a farm. He had several sons, who were also holders of slaves. It was common practice for freed slaves to take the name of their ex-owner and it was also not uncommon to have slave mothers bear off-spring of white fathers. At any rate, following the Civil War, Jesse apparently migrated eventually to Jessup, Ga. according to oral family history. The 1870 Ga. Census lists Jesse Woolbright, black, age 16, b. Dawson, Ga. - M593, Roll 176, p. 464. The same 1870 black census lists a Mack Woolbright, age 40 [1830]*. The Florida Census of 1875 records Jesse as living in Sumner Co. In the late 1890s he was probably in Jessup, Ga. In 1910 census, Jesse W. Woolbright, black, was living in Alachua Co., Fla. , age 57, born in Ga. with a son, Leonard Woolbright. He must have moved early in the year as he was also enumerated in Berrien Co. Ga. Military Dist. 518 in 1910 with wife, Eddie (M.? ) b. 1860 in Ga. with five sons listed. Did he have two marriages or was Moni a pet name? Research: Research notes: History of Lee Co., page 541, Woolbright family section.

Husbands Notes... Notes: Notes: The family oral history is that Jesse was a mulatto. His birthdate and place indicates that he was probably born on a Woolbright plantation in Lee, now Terrell County, Georgia. Daniel Woolbright (b. c1789 in Wilkes Co.), son of Jacob Woolbright, moved to Chichasawhatchee Village which was a few miles SE from the present city of Dawson and established a farm. He had several sons, who were also holders of slaves. It was common practice for freed slaves to take the name of their ex-owner and it was also not uncommon to have slave mothers bear off-spring of white fathers. At any rate, following the Civil War, Jesse apparently migrated eventually to Jessup, Ga. according to oral family history. The 1870 Ga. Census lists Jesse Woolbright, black, age 16, b. Dawson, Ga. - M593, Roll 176, p. 464. The same 1870 black census lists a Mack Woolbright, age 40 [1830]*. The Florida Census of 1875 records Jesse as living in Sumner Co. In the late 1890s he was probably in Jessup, Ga. In 1910 census, Jesse W. Woolbright, black, was living in Alachua Co., Fla. , age 57, born in Ga. with a son, Leonard Woolbright. He must have moved early in the year as he was also enumerated in Berrien Co. Ga. Military Dist. 518 in 1910 with wife, Eddie (M.? ) b. 1860 in Ga. with five sons listed. Did he have two marriages or was Moni a pet name? Research: Research notes: History of Lee Co., page 541, Woolbright family section.

Notes: After Willis died, Elizabeth operated her swampy, mosquito infested farm on Chickasawachee (Kinchafoonee in some reports) Creek SE of Dawson with former slaves - Susie; Squires [b. 1840] and Eliza Woolbright [b. 1842] and their sons, John [b. 1865] and Willis [b.1868] and probably Thomas Roberts as overseer. Mary Elizabeth and Daniel Joshua were still small, money was worthless, and malaria common. She died twelve years later in 1874. Her detailed family history is noted in
