    214 > Judy,
    > I am looking for more information on John Robert's wife, Phoebe O'Ste
    > born 1785, North Carolina and her parents.
    > Thanks, Debbie
    Phoebe was born 22 February 1785, in Carteret County, North Carolina from "Pioneers of
    Wiregrass Georgia". She is a daughter of Ada Weeks, apparently born before
    Ada, daughter of Silas Weeks and Zilar Hunter, was married. Ada married John
    Osteen about 1787. Phoebe was possibly raised by Ada's brother Theophil
    Weeks and his wife Ann Osteen, sister of John Osteen. (Phoebe is listed as
    illegitimate child of John Osteen and Ada Weeks in "Families Remembered The
    Burnett, Prevatt, Walker, Stonecypher and Other Allied Lines of Northea
    Florida and Georgia", by John Albert Burnett page 122. This has credence as
    no bastardy bond was posted, there was a close relationship between the Week
    and the Osteen families and that John Osteen and Ada Weeks later married.)

    Phoebe and John were probably married about 1798 in probably Macintosh
    County, Georgia. Phoebe is buried in Swift Creek Church Cemetery, near Lake
    Butler, Union County, Florida. Her headstone is marked "Phoebe O'Steen
    Weeks". (Swift Creek Cemetery is at Zion Baptist Church.)

    In ancient records, the name is generally found as Osteen, not O'Steen. 
    Weeks, Phoebe "Tibbie" (I1832)

    218 A lady with class: Beatrice Deweese lets her light shine

    By Matthew L. Baker

    For The Franklin Press 21 May 2009
    http://www.thefranklinpress.com/articles/2009/05/21/living_in_macon/01living.txt

    My friend Beatrice Deweese, is a model of commitment to God, family, and country and also a member of "The Greatest Generation." Although she'll soon be 89, Mrs. Bea as her friends call her, still keeps house, tends a garden and firmly proclaims, "I just don't want to be a burden to anybody."

    Beatrice Wilkes was born in the Olive Hill community on June 9, 1920. Born to Grady Wilkes and Annie Bryant Wilkes, Bea was older than her brothers and sisters. She herself wasn't blessed with children, but she claimed later in life that she was a mother because she was the oldest child and took care of all of her brothers and sisters.

    Grady Wilkes was a big influence in his daughter's life. It was only natural that she helped him in the fields since she was the oldest." My dad was the most honest man there ever was. He said that if he got any money and he owed somebody, that it wasn't his until he had paid the money that he owed," she recalled. Grady Wilkes was also fond of yellow root tea and gave it to the children for nearly everything that ailed them.

    Mrs. Bea remembered vividly the hard times of her youth. Her daddy often worked all day for a 25-pound bag of flour. If he was lucky to work for a wage, he'd get 10 cents an hour.

    "A dime was worth something then," she told me. Her daddy took a stick and measured her feet for new shoes. Kids then got one pair of shoes and went barefooted in the summer.

    People either grew or made most everything they needed, because nobody had any money and going to town was a long trip. John Roper ran the Rolling Store up through Oakdale and down Olive Hill. He made a lot of stops and brought staples such as flour and sugar. Bea often ran out of the house with her brothers and sisters to meet him and see what he had to sell that day.

    Mrs. Bea came of age during the Hoover days.

    Hoover declared, "A dollar a day and a pair of overalls were enough for any man." The trouble was that many people had nether of the two. The Bank of Franklin failed and if anyone had anything in it, they lost it. Bea told me that her family "didn't lose anything because we didn't have anything to lose."

    In those days, a family on hard times had no assistance, as we know it today. It was "root hog or die" as someone once said. The church family couldn't help much because they were "poorer than Job's turkey," Mrs. Bea told me. The Red Cross handed out some material for dresses, but that's about all that there was.

    "The old days were hard times, but good times," Mrs. Bea remembered. The neighbors often pitched in and had barn raisings. Men would gather up materials and put up a barn while the women cooked meals. Grady Wilkes worked at the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) camp and contracted measles while working there. The whole family except Bea, got the measles. This left her milking the cows and keeping house, until she got hurt and couldn't do it. The neighbors pitched in until everyone was well.

    Olive Hill School stands lonely and worse for wear at the intersection of Carson Cove Road. In the old days, it was the center of activity in the community. Bea remembered fondly her days of attending school there. The kids often brought their lunch in a lard bucket. One day a family of kids brought their lard bucket to school but they got the wrong bucket. "They went to eat and all they had was a bucket of honey," she laughed.

    Kids then played a game that the old-timers called "Antne Over" (Annie Over). A group of kids would stand on each side of the schoolhouse while one side yelled "Annie" and the other side yelled "Over." They would throw a ball back and forth and whoever caught it the most times won.

    Teachers back then were allowed to discipline students more than teachers do today. When the students misbehaved, the teachers would send them outside to break off a switch and then come in and receive their punishment. School wasn't emphasized as much in those days. The school year lasted only from July until Christmas. Students took a recess in July when blackberries were ripe, so they could help pick them.

    In those days, the closest church was in Iotla, a long walk away. Olive Hill School served as a school and church. Revivals were a big event in those days and lasted two weeks at a time. There was standing room only every evening as praying, preaching and singing ran on into the night. Seekers went forward and Christian people would gather around them and pray for them. Bea recalled that the most important moment of her life occurred at age 14 when she went forward and accepted Christ at one of those Olive Hill revivals. "My faith is what sustains me," she later told me. There was always a baptizing at the end of the revival, for those who had been saved.

    Bea married Cornell Deweese in 1939. The war broke out shortly after they married and she remembered that Cornell didn't have to go overseas because he had asthma.

    "Couples then married to stay together," she told me. Cornell and Bea were married 60 years before he passed away.

    WWII brought about a lot of change. All the young, able bodied men had to go off to fight the war. Up until this time, there were few jobs for women, but with a large portion of the labor force overseas, women were needed in the workforce. Many had to "lay in there and plow," as they were left to hold down home and hearth.

    WWII was the first war in which women served in great numbers. They were called WACS (Women's Army Corps). The women's branch of the US Army was officially created on May 14, 1942. Many women served as nurses and in other non-combat positions.

    Bea worked at a public job for the first time, just as many women did during WWII. She trimmed mica on Carson Cove with her sister Frances, while her husband Cornell worked in the mine. Bea remembered that she was paid a dollar per pound of mica and could do pretty well if the mica was good. Often they got what was called "washer punches," mica that was small and didn't work very well.

    Bea was listening to the radio on the day Roosevelt declared the war was over. She said that when the announcement came, people ran out of houses, hollering and cheering as church bells rang in celebration that the war had ended.

    While we were visiting, I noticed Mrs. Bea's Bible lying on the table. We talked about how important her faith was to her. The hardest time in her life was when her husband Cornell passed away, and she told me that she probably wouldn't have made it had the Lord not been with her. She cited John 3:16 (For God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life") as her favorite Bible verse.

    "It sums up the Scripture in a nutshell and can make your life straight," she told me. "It's not all been flowery beds of ease, but I've been blessed with wonderful family and enjoyed a reasonable portion of health. I want to be remembered for just what I am. If I've got an enemy in this world, I don't know who they are. I can put my arms around anybody and tell them that I love them. That's a good feeling to have when I lay down at night!"

    Alton Brian Christie was the first child of Alton P. and Eileen Christie.He was born prematurely at 6 1/2 months. He was born in the Lake Shore Hospital in Lake City, Columbia, Florida and immediately transferred to the University Hospital in Jacksonville, Duval, Florida due to complications. Brian had to have surgery to connect his duodenum to his stomach and did not recover from the surgery. His body was interred in the Hopewell Cemetery, in Northern Columbia County, FL. His parents never got to hold him and love him as he was gone from this life so shortly after arriving here. We can only imagine what could have been.
