Forest Jasper Beverly Sr.

Forest Jasper Beverly was born November 13, 1892 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia to Martin Columbus Beverly and Mollie (Born a Tatum, who later took her stepfather's name of Barber) Beverly. Forest Jasper Beverly’s paternal grandparents were Forrest Jasper Beverly and Martha E. (Suggs) Beverly , and maternal grandparents were Matilda Tatum Barber and Obediah Barber. Obediah Barber was Forest Jasper Beverly’s grandfather. (All per family info) Forest Jasper Beverly married Margaret Inez Robinson on April 7, 1912 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Margaret Inez (Robinson) Beverly was the daughter of Edward Robinson and Sarah Jane Wildes. Margaret Inez Robinson’s maternal grandparents were John and Sarah Jane (Nunez) Wildes. Maternal great grandparents were Hugh and Sarah Virginia (Carter) Nunez of Appling Co. Ga, then Ware Co. Georgia, and Maximillan and Elizabeth (Wilkinson) Wildes of Tattnall County, Georgia and later Ware County, Georgia. Paternal grandparents were Mark and Sarah (Barber) Robinson.

Forest Jasper Beverly died September 10, 1981 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. His wife, Margaret Inez Robinson Beverly died July 2, 1973 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. They are buried in the Kettle Creek Cemetery in Waycross, Ware county, Georgia.

"Jep Beverly", as he was always known by all who knew him, grew to manhood in Ware County, Georgia, where his father, Martin Columbus Beverly was engaged in farming. In the early days of his adult life, while still in his teens, he drove a team of horses hauling Naval Stores and related items.

He was employed by his wife’s father for a period of time after he was married to Inez (Margaret Inez Robinson) Robinson of Clinch County, Georgia. Later he worked for a period of time as a convict guard. For a brief period of time he operated an overhead crane in the machine shop of the ACL Railroad. Fairly early in his life he turned to the building business for his vocation, becoming a Master Carpenter, and today many of the fine homes and a number of the large commercial buildings bear the mark of his hammer and saw. One of the fine buildings outside Waycross which he constructed is the Post Office in Blackshear, Georgia.

During the Second World War, he worked on the air field at Douglas, on the construction of the "Ways" for the Brunswick Shipyard and on an air field at Sebring, Florida. At the close of the war, he was back home working on houses and other buildings. He undertook extensive remodeling of Historic Kettle Creek Church along with cemetery improvements and construction of a parsonage, and all as a labor of love.

At this time in his life he made several basic changes to his own home, remodeling and updating it as he had always hoped to do.

He was a man who loved life and wanted to live it with his family. The never to be forgotten fishing trips to Harrietts Bluff, the yearly visits to the beach for a week with ALL who would go, and the endless trips to the zoo in Jacksonville to brighten the lives of the children and grandchildren (and when all had grown beyond the zoo age, he rounded up the dogs and carried them) was an indication of the love for his family.

Time, and the heavy load he carried with so much family responsibility, finally overtook him and in 1960, he retired. But he didn’t really retire. Someone was always calling him for work that had to be done and he would do it. It also got him out of the house and from under the foot of Inez for a spell. He grew fine vegetable gardens and shared the fruit of that labor with people all across the community.

Inez, the love of his life for 62 years slipped away from him in death in 1973. He was never the same again.

Later he married Margaret Cosmides and for five years they enjoyed going places together and then in his sleep in his 87th year, he had a stroke. It was severe. After a long stay in the hospital and months of therapy at Baptist Village, he was brought home. A short time later he had surgery and the malignancy guided him once again to Baptist Village.

It was from this place that he was released from his suffering and confinement by death. At the funeral, his grandsons were pallbearers. He sleeps in the peaceful quiet of the Kettle Creek Cemetery beside Inez and a son that died in infancy.

Forest Jasper Beverly and Margaret Inez Robinson Beverly had eight children, they are as follows:

1) James Thomas Beverly born January 17, 1917 in Argyle, Clinch County, Georgia. James married Lollie Mae Joyner on March 4, 1939 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia.

2) Sarah Beatrice Beverly was born October 27, 1919 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Sarah married Wallace Paul Mincey in 1937.

3) Mary Alene Beverly was born May 21, 1921 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia Mary married Norman L. Gillis.

4) Forest Jasper Beverly Jr. was born February 20, 1926 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. "FJ" as he is known married Hazel Wigglesworth August 20, 1947 in Waresboro, Ware County, Georgia.

5) Virginia Inez Beverly was born November 16, 1928 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Virginia married O.R. (Bob) Roberson.

6) Betty Jo Beverly was born October 5, 1931 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Betty Jo married Paul Player in 1950, in 1957 married William (Billy) Shaw, and in 1976 married Elton (Buddy) Gibbs.

7) Robert Wesley Beverly died in infancy.

8) Ruth Nelline Beverly was born November 21, 1940 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Nell as she was known married Joseph Clark.

Margaret Inez Robinson Beverly
(This was originally written by F.J. Beverly for a family reunion)

Margaret Inez (Robinson) Beverly was born October 6, 1895 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia to Edward Robinson and Sarah Jane (Wildes) Robinson. Grandparents, were John and Sarah Jane (Nunez) Wildes, and Mark and Sarah Jane ( Barber ) Robinson. Great grandparents were Hugh and Sarah Virginia Carter Nunez and Maximillan and Elizabeth (Wilkerson) Wildes. The parents of Mark Robinson are James and Easter (O'Steen) Robinson and Sarah Jane (Barber) Robinson who parents are not known. The great, great grandparents were Daniel and Nancy________Nunez. The great, great, great grandparents were Samuel Nunez and Mary Sharp. Daniel Nunez never married Mary Sharp.

Margaret Inez Robinson married Forest Jasper Beverly on April 7, 1912 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia.

Margaret Inez (Robinson) Beverly died July 2, 1973 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia

Born to Edward and Sarah Jane (Wildes) Robinson, she lived her early life within a large family at Naval Stores Operations (Turpentine Stills) with the little houses for mostly black people to live in, who worked the trees to extract the gum that was distilled into turpentine and rosin.

According to both Inez and her husband "Jep", her mother Mrs. Sarah Jane (Wildes) Robinson did not approve their dating, and she had become convinced that it was all off between Jep and Inez. However, on the day he was to marry another young lady, Inez and Jep were wed. Inez was 16 years of age and Jep was 19. They were married for several years before they had a child and then over a period of forty years eight children were born to them

Inez was a homebody. She loved for people, especially family to come to her home, but she was content to play the role of wife, mother and homemaker day after day in her own home.

None of her children could ever say that they came home school to find mother gone and no food prepared. Her children left early in the morning to ride a school bus to school. She would be already washing clothes when they left and she would still be busy with the task when they arrived back home late in the afternoon. She cooked more than half of her married life on a wood stove. She scrubbed her floors with a "shuck" scrub and 'lye" soap. Sometimes she would allow the younger children to ride the scrub to make it heavy as it was pushed over the floors. The "rear" of the child would sting for hours where the lye water touched the skin. What a joy she experienced in 1936 when she got her first electric washing machine. In quick order came an electric stove, refrigerator, floor furnace to heat the house, a water heater and a huge attic fan to cool the house, especially at night, and oh yes, hardwood floors and the "shuck" scrub and "lye" soap became history. Her family came first. On Sunday morning she stayed home and had the Sunday dinner ready when the rest of the family returned home from Church. Always there were guests for dinner on Sunday. Somehow the food and the people came out even. It was that "sixth sense" born of years of experience on the part of a mother that made it so. Inez was close kin to Nichodemus in the Bible. The Bible says he came to the Lord by night, and so did she. She was always in attendance at night.

When someone said something that was out of the ordinary, or almost unbelievable, her stock statement was, "I want you to listen to that."

One of the great highlights of her life was when they reached the 50 year plateau together and their children gave them a great Golden Wedding Anniversary Celebration and reception. She talked about it for the rest of her 12 years.

She had certain things that she would not consider doing under any circumstances. Once it was remarked to her that her father, Ed Robinson never saw an airplane before he died. Her immediate reply was, "And you can say when Inez is dead, she never rode in one."

After sending children to school for 40 years, and living to see all of her children married with children of their own, her tired heart refused to beat any longer and on July 2, 1973 almost to the age of 78, she "slept the sleep of death."

She never earned a dollar outside the home in her life, but she left her children "THINGS" that money cannot buy and the world cannot take away.

Her Memorial Service was conducted by her son , Rev. F.J. Beverly Jr.. He just talked about, "I remember Mama." Grandsons were pallbearers. On Mothers Day and Easter and at Christmastime fresh flowers are present in a permanent marble vase on the family headstone saying to all who pass by, THE Beverly CLAN HAS NOT FORGOTTEN ITS HERITAGE.

Forest Jasper Beverly and Margaret Inez (Robinson) Beverly had eight children: James T. Beverly, Sarah Beatrice Beverly, Mary Alene Beverly, Forest Jasper Beverly Jr.,Virginia Inez Beverly, Betty Jo Beverly, Robert Wesley Beverly and Ruth Nelline Beverly. Margaret Inez Robinson Beverly

4742 We celebrate the life and influence of Freda Marlene Crawford, who was born in Lake City, Florida, October 12, 1949 and joined Jesus Christ and other loved ones November 12, 2009. Freda was an accomplished woman. She was an honors graduate of Columbia County High School, and then the president of the student body at Lake City Community College. She completed her B.S. from the University of West Florida and her M.Ed. and Ph.D. in Science Education from the University of Florida.

For 17 years she taught science at Buchholz High School until she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 1999. After treatment, she completed her Ph.D. and taught as an adjunct professor in Science Education as long as her health allowed.

More important to her than work and education was her family. She modeled the love and support of a faithful wife, mother, and then grandmother of four-- with boundless energy and excitement. Her family was the joy and the focus of her life.

But even more important to her was her faith in Christ. Having made a commitment of her life to Christ at the age of nine, she became a life-long, devoted follower of His. Her faith was the driving force of her life, and in her everyone saw the embodiment of one of her favorite scriptures, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13) She stood alongside her husband of thirty-nine years, Gary L. Crawford, pastor of Westside Baptist Church for the past 28 years. She carried on her own ministry of prayer, teaching, music--as both an instrumentalist and vocalist--and engaged in mission work around the world. She profoundly loved her church family at Westside, and her shared ministry with them was a passion in her life. She was deeply grateful for their love and support as she battled her disease across ten years. This love and gratitude were expressed in her CD "Praise for God's Sustaining Hand" and in the book that she and Dr. Fran Terhune edited for her husband, "In Celebration of Love, Marriage and Sex," based on the Song of Solomon.

The work of the Florida Baptist Convention, especially the establishment of a Florida Baptist Children's Home in the area, was also central in her ministry. From the Convention, she received the honor of "Pastor's Wife of the Year" just a few days before her Homegoing.

She leaves a legacy of faith, love, courage, and commitment to family, ministry, and community. The song she sang on her CD, "Touch Through Me," reflects the passion of her life; she said, "This song expresses my commitment to be available to Him."

Her husband Gary, children (and spouses) John & Tina Crawford, Christa & Bill Latham, and grandchildren Cade, Michael, Johanna, and Lachlan, mother Alice Mangle, and brother Ronnie Mangle wish to express gratitude to the many friends who have brought prayer and encouragement into their lives. We invite all to celebrate her life and faith on Saturday, November 21, 2009 at 10:00 am at Westside Baptist Church. Interment will follow at Hopeful Baptist Church Cemetery in Lake City, FL at 2:00 pm.

The family will receive friends at WILLIAMS-THOMAS WESTAREA FUNERAL HOME, 823 NW 143rd Street, from 4:00 pm-7:00 pm on Friday, November 20, 2009.

In lieu of flowers, the family invites you make a donation to Westside Baptist Church (10000 Newberry Road, Gainesville 32606) for a Missions Scholarship that will be established in her honor.

Info from: Judy Crabb Roberts-Oxford, Florida
From: 'Families Remembered' by John Albert Burnett
Mrs. Ada (Weeks)O'Steen was a charter member of the High Bluff Baptist Church in present Brantley (then Wayne) County, when it was formed on June 30, 1819. Mr.O'Steen was baptized into the same church May 11, 1823, and on November 8, 1823 they were dismissed by letter to join in organizing the Kettle Creek Baptist Church in what was then Appling County, Georgia (But which became WareCounty in 1825). Due to the loss of the latter church's records their subsequent church membership cannot be traced.

John O'Steen, late in life made a move with his family to Columbia County, Florida. He is shown in the 1840 census of Columbia County. John O'Steen died in Columbia County on Feb. 15 , 1841. Ada (Weeks) O'Steen after the death of her husband moved in with her daughter, Easter Robinson, who lived in Camden County, Georgia. Ada (Weeks) O'Steen is shown living with her in the 1850 Camden County census. She is thought to have died between 1850-1860. John O'Steen, and Ada (Weeks) O'Steen exact places of burial are not known.
There has been some controversy for several years over Phoebe O'Steen's birth being before John and Ada's marriage. During the colonial period it was very common for couples to live together and even has some children before their actual marriage. Such couples were recognized as man and wife who later marry when a minister was around. Ealier researchers upset over this birth incident before marriage have concocted several stories about Phoebe O'Steen . One was that she was a half sister of Ada Weeks-this is not true. Another is that she was a relative living with the family-also not true. Illegitimacy was a sticky issue in the colonial period. A bastardy bond would have to had been posted for any illegitimate child. Carteret County, North Carolina records are quite extensive and no such bond exists for Phoebe O'Steen. She was the daughter of John O'Steen and Ada (Weeks) O'Steen that they had prior to their marriage.
There has been some controversy as to who are the parents of Phoebe. She is shown as other family member living in the household of Theophilus Weeks and Ann O'Steen when Theophilus applied for his Revolutionary War pension.
It has been said that Phoebe O'Steen Weeks is really the daughter of John O'Steen and Ada Weeks (sister to Theophilus). and that Ada died young and Theophilus took Phoebe into his house hold to finish raising, which would explain her name being Phoebe O'Steen Weeks. It could be that she was adopted. Nothing has been proven!!
Ada Weeks was the daughter of Silas Weeks and Zillar Hunter. She was baptized Jan 30, 1819 in the High Bluff Primitive Baptist Church.

Ada's brother Theophilus is buried at the Old Providence Baptist Church, Lake City, Columbia, Florida. OLD PROVIDENCE BAPTIST CHURCH, 904-755-1648, HIGHWAY 245, LAKE CITY, FL 32055
