MEBANE

 

Sally's 4-great aunt - sister of Sarah Wood who married John Wheeler

William Mebane 1779 - 1856 his parents
& ca 1798 Mary Wood 1780 - 1846
her parents
of Mason Hall, Orange Co, NC


          This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!! 


William Mebane 28 Apr 1779 Mason Hall, Orange Co NC - 3 May 1856 Orange Co
     married Northampton Co NC ca 1798 Mary Wood 8 Oct 1780 - 21 Jan 1846 Mebane, NC
Burial: Location - five miles from the intersection of NC Highways Nos. 119 and 70-A, in Mebane, NC, is this family burial plot of a pioneer family.
Driving north to the home of Col. Van R. White, turn right just past his house, then turn right into a farm yard at the first house on the right.
 The cemetery is in a pasture back of the house, enclosed with a dry rock wall.
Survey from the notes of Durward T. Stokes recorded with Col. Van R. White on March 8, 1959. Mebane Family Cemetery
 
. (Web site by Allen Dew).

Note: This William Mebane son of Alexander Mebane II and who married Mary Wood of Northampton Co NC is a separate person from the son of Capt William Mebane, William Brown Mebane  who married Frances Woods in Orange Co in 1797

After the death of her mother Sarah/Sallie Oct 1814 , Julia Munroe Wheeler b April 1814 stays with this family in Orange County until her father married his third wife Sept 1816.

Mary Wood & William Mebane of Mason Hall, Orange Co, NC had:
1. Dr. Alexander Wood Mebane 1800 - 5 Feb 1847 age 47
     married 27 Jan 1824 Mary E Collins Howe 1805 - 29 Oct 1855 age 50
             From Moore's History of NC Vol II, p16- Concerning the Legislature of 1829 "Among the new members of this year was Dr. Alexander Wood Mebane of Bertie. He was reared in Orange, but had married his cousin Mary Howe of the Hermitage on Chowan River and dwelt at that noble homestead.

He was a man of large endowments. A devotion to the Democratic policy did not interfere with large and successful financial schemes. He was one of the leading fishermen in the broad waters of the Albemarle country. This business had received an enormous impetus since 1815. At that time, two Northern men had introduced a long seine, worked by windlasses and horse power, at Lawrence's Point on the Chowan, six miles below Colerain, and soon others were put in, two thousand yards in length, requiring six horses and fifty men and women in their handling. Prior to this time the spring catch had always been effected by means of short float nets and weirs."

Captain John Wood Mebane, CSA, KIA

J. H. Mebane's second son was also in the war.
He was a graduate of the University of North Carolina in 1860, but was soon swept up in the turmoil of the times.
John Wood Mebane commanded an artillery battery which saw extensive action in Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, and Alabama.
At the Battle of Murfreesboro, Captain E.E. Wright was killed and Lieutenant John W. Mebane was wounded.
Mebane was elevated to Captain, and was elected to be the officer in charge.
His unit was engaged in Corinth, Tupelo, briefly sent down through Mobile and Jackson in an unsuccessful attempt
to rescue Vicksburg, and then back to Chattanooga.
At Chickamauga, Mebane did not see much action because of their position, and only spent 75 rounds.
Up on Missionary Ridge, however, the battery expended 543 rounds and nearly emptied their limber chests.
With Bates' division, Mebane was able to save the four 12 lb howitzers in an orderly withdrawal from the ridge.

They were subsequently engaged at the Battle of New Hope Church and sent on to defend Atlanta.
Captain Mebane was ultimately killed at the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, GA, reportedly from a shot to the head.
It is remarkable that JWM's body was carried all the way back here for burial.
 Embalming with chemicals was a new technique, and was rarely performed in the south during the war.
When we bought this place, Mrs. Perkins told us JWM was brought back packed in salt and accompanied by his servant.
I am not aware of any history to either corroborate or refute this.

"The carriage was still in use when my mother lived there as a child. It was used to take the family to church on Sunday. It made my mother sick to ride in the closed carriage so her great aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Green Jordan came by on Sundays and she rode with them in their open carriage. Mrs. Jordan was born Ann Eliza Mebane and was John Howe Mebane's sister.

She must have been quite a redoubtable lady. All their horses had been stolen except her riding horse. Word came to them that soldiers were nearly there. There wasn't time to hide the horse so she grasped the nettle and told the negro man to put a bridle and her side saddle on the horse and bring her up to the mounting block at the house. While that was being done she donned her riding skirt. The horse was brought up and she mounted. The soldiers appeared and there mounted on the horse was this very erect lady. She was probably in her late fifties or early sixties. She was ordered down. She didn't budge. Again she was ordered to dismount and told they were taking the horse for the Union Army. She stayed put. The third time she told the men, "If you get this horse, you are going to have to kill me first and drag me off." The party roamed over the place and came back and the same scene was repeated. They went off again and again she looked them down. None of them had the nerve to reach up and drag her off the horse. Finally, the men went off to hunt for easier prey.

My mother remembered her aunt. The children called her "Auntie Jordan."
Mama said when Auntie sat in a chair or on a sofa her back never touched the back of the chair." from Tennessee Tales [related by Nannie.

STANFORD, Richard, representative, was born in Dorchester county, near Vienna,
Md., March 2, 1767; son of Richard Stanford, and a descendant of Richard Stanford, who sailed in the ship Primrose from Gravesend, London, England, to Virginia, July 27, 1635. He removed from Maryland to North Carolina about 1793 and established an academy at Hawfields, Orange county, among his pupils being Thomas H. Benton, afterwards U.S. senator. He also conducted a farm at Hawfields and was married to Jeannette, daughter of Gen. Alexander Mebane, representative in the 3d congress (179295). She died in three years, and he married, secondly, Mary, daughter of Gen. Stephen Moore of Mt. Tirzah, Person county, N.C. (formerly of New York city), and granddaughter of Col. John Moore, a leading merchant in the early days of New York city. She died, Sept. 20, 1858, at Lambsville, N.C. He was a Democratic representative from North Carolina in the 5th-14th congresses, serving from May 15, 1797, to April 9, 1816, and was the first representative in congress to be called "The Father of the House." He was chairman of the committee on revisal and unfinished business during the 13th congress, and upon the assembling of the 14th congress was chosen chairman of the committee on rules and orders of the house. . . . Representative Stanford died at Washington, D.C., during the 14th session of congress, and was buried in the Congressional cemetery. The date of Representative Stanford's death is April 9, 1816.  [found at Ancestry.com]
