Fort Gaines Sentinel, 21 Feb 1908, pg 1
Col. C. V. Morris
"One of the most attractive citizens of Fort Gaines is Col. C. V. Morris. The
he is 89 years of age, and so alert physically and mentally, interested the
correspondent, and he drew from Col. Morris some of his history:
"Col. Morris was born in New York Jan. 11, 1819. He came South in 1839. He came
to see the
country largely as a young man's frolic. His visit was to Franklin, Ala.,
not far from
Fort Gaines. Franklin was a town of considerable importance at the time.
"Bennett, Chitty & Grace, a firm doing a large business, induced Mr. Morris to
them, and in time gave him an interest in the business. Here he remained
until the war of 1861 came. He was full of southern ardor, and joined the 15th
He was in the Virginia army, Ewell's division, under Stonewall Jackson. He was
in all of
Jackson's battles in the campaign of 1862, and fought to the last.
"When the war was over he came home and went into business again in Franklin,
near by was
his farm. The name of his firm when he went to the war was McAllister & Morris,
resumed business in Franklin in 1847. [sic,1867?]
"In 1847 [sic, 1867?] Col Morris opened business in Fort Gaines, and he has
there ever since. The name of the firm for years has been C. V. Morris & Son.
"In politics Col. Morris has always been a democrat. His father, he says took
in New York politics, and was a democrat. It was interesting to hear him tell of
whig convention in New York, and the speeches delivered as to what the new part
named. Some of the speakers declared the name should be the 'The Whig Democratic
"When the lamented Henry G Turner represented the second congressional district,
he and Col.
Morris became great friends, and to this day Col. Morris grows eloquent at the
of Henry G. Turner's name. He was always anxious to see him a member of the
great parliamentary body so suited to one of Judge Turner's tastes and
"Even now, though 89 years of age, Col. Morris takes profound interest in the
welfare of his
country. He hopes that the democratic party will not permit Mr. Bryan to
put in the national
platform of 1908 the initiative and referendum. As a national law it would
legislation by all the people in masse, and congress would nolonger be the
but htat would be transferred to the people at large, and under it the large
New York, Ohio, Illinois and others could combine on any line of policy and
legislation of the country.
"Col. Morris says the south should guard with great jealousy what state rights
were left her
by the war, and to adopt as national law the referendum, applying it in national
would permit the Socialistic west, having nothing in common with the south, to
"Col. Morris believes the remedy is not direct legislation instead of
legislation, as the referendum demands, but to force, by an aroused public
the republican party to go back to the 'old rules' and permit the House to be a
and parliamentary body, as it was before the autocratic methods of republican
perverted the representative system. This change to the old rules, giving the
hearing in congress, would make congress responsive to the people. Better this
national referendum, which means an unbridled democracy with checks or balance,
south under it the victim of whatever the 'frenzied agitators' of the east or
choose to place upon us." J. C.

State President Talks of Interesting Visit to Middle Georgia Town.
The unveiling of the confederate monument at Monticello on April 6 was a red
letter day in that community. Invitations has been generally extended and
the town was filled with visitors from the neighboring counties. Among the
guest were a number of U.D.C. from Jackson.
"It was a happy occasion," remarked the state president, Miss Baxter,
speaking of her visit to Monticello. I was glad to share their pleasures
with the Monticello Daughters and proud of the splendid patriotism which
this little band of fifty daughters manifested and because of which they had
accomplished such results.
The audience room of the courthouse would not hold the people. They
overflowed into the halls and many stood during the entire exercises. After
the unveiling of the monument a barbecue was served, the veterans being
given first place of honor.
At 4:00 in the afternoon I met the Monticello Daughters, also a goodly
number of visitors to their town, and thold them informally about our state
and united work, which includes our Bartow memorial educational fund.
Arlington, Shiloh and Georgia room at Richmond.
I hope the train may have also been laid for the organization of new
chapters and trust this work may grow throughout the state.
The Monticello monument was untaken during the presidency of Mrs. Herbert
Hill, continued during that of Mrs. A. S. Florence and brought to completion
under the presidency of Mrs. Green Johnson. I hope the chapter will take
renewed interest in all departments of division work".

MRS. MARY R. WOOD, widow and relic of Honorable Cary Wood
deceased, died at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. William H. Gaither,
in the county of Newton, on the morning of the 30th of May, 1874, after a long
protracted and lingering illness.
Mrs. Wood was born on the 18th day of September, 1803, in the county of Clark,
in this State. Her maiden name was Billups, a family well known and
greatly esteemed in Georgia. In her early womanhood she was married to Mr.
Cary Wood, then of the town of Athens, in Clark county. About the time, or
soon after their marriage, the county of Newton was organized and the county
site fixed at the place which was then named and called Covington. To this place
Mr. Wood came with his family, among the first settlers, indeed, while the
embryo town was yet a forest, and commenced a mercantile business. Not many
years after their location at Covington, God in his abundant mercy and goodness,
called them to a true and evangelical repentance, and made known to each of them
His saving grace, and Mr. Wood and his then young and excellent wife, became
members of the household of faith, and united themselves with what was then
called and known as the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Wood was an earnest,
honest man, diligent in business, and his good wife was to him a helpmate
indeed, and upon them the blessings of God abode. The efforts made by them to
provide properly for their household prospered, and from comparative poverty,
Mr. Wood, became a man of wealth. In the year 1830 the writer came to Covington
a mere boy to live and labor, a stranger among strangers. Then it was his good
fortune at an early day to form the acquaintance of Mr. Wood and his family, and
they became to him as a dear brother and sister. He was permitted to hold with
them the most kindly and intimate relations, and know them well; and often in
his struggles in life, has the writer had cause to bless God for the gift of
friends so kind and true. With them towards him there was no shadow of
turning-always the same cordial and hearty. Children were born to them, some of
whom died in their infancy, but although they wept, "they did not mourn as they
that had no hope."
God took the lambs of the flock to his own loving bosom.- The later born
children lived. Four daughters and one son have survived both their parents; and
both the father and mother lived to see each of their children well married and
settled in life. Mr. Wood died suddenly of disease of the heart on the 6th day
of May, 1857, seventeen years and a few days before his wife, the subject of
this notice. The writer has often since the death of her husband, conversed with
her, sometimes when troubles encompassed her, (as they did all of us in the
South during the late war,) and although she in common with all others felt it
sorely, yet her faith in God never wavered. She would say "God is my Father; he
knows what is best." Never desponding, always cheerful, God was to her a Refuge,
the Shadow of a great Rock to hide her from the storm.
The last few years of her life she spent mostly, with her youngest daughter,
Mrs. Gaither, in the country, often however visiting her children and friends at
Covington. Mrs. Wood was a calm, consistent Christian lady, patient to her
affliction, and of unfeigned faith, suffering as well as doing the will of God,
until the end came, and then in full assurance of a well founded hope, she
passed in mature old age from the loving family circle below to her reward in
