Walsh's tall shaft tombstone bears his wife's bid dates readably. However, it is another matter with his own inscription (on the south side of the stone; hers on the north). The Madison Co. Court Min. Bk. 15, page 494, states that he "died at his home on the 28 Dec. 1880 intestate." The TRIBUNE-SUN, Jackson, Dec. 30, 1880, notes his death, Dec. 28, 1880 in his 67th year; from McNairy Co. to Jackson soon after the Civil War; a partner in mercantile business with B. R. Harris.

A. W. JONES LOT, NO. 278
AMOS WESLEY JONES
MEMPHIS CONFERENCE OF THE M. E. CHURCH SOUTH
Your committee would, after conference with brethren, who knew our brother deceased, and also with his nearest relatives, beg leave to submit to you for your adoption an in memorium written by Rev. Dr. J. H. Evans, Presiding Elder of the Jackson District, it being the judgement of your committee, a full and most befitting tribute to the memory of himwhom we all knew so well and loved so tenderly.
Rev. Amos V. Jones, D.D., the widely and favorably known President of the Memphis Conference Female Institute, died is the city Jackson, Tenn., after an illness of several weeks, September 13th, 1892, having lived a life on earth of 78 years, 9 months and 18 days.
He was the son of worthy parentage born in Lewisburg, North Carolina, December 18th, 1815. At the age of twelve years he was "born again," and uniting himself with the Methodist Episcopal Church thenceforward lived an upright, consistent and useful life. When and where he received license to preach we have not been able to learn, but we find him a preacher while yet a student at Randolph Macon College, Virginia, where he graduated with he highest honors of his class, receiving his diploma at the hands of Dr. L. C. Garland, now the venerable Chancellor of Vanderbilt University. His solidity of character and superior scholarship were at once recognized. The Board of Trustee elected him tutor is the College, and he entered upon his work at the opening of the next session. Here he married a lady of superior culture, and of considerable wealth, but she dying soon after the birth of her first0born, the now. Rev. A. B. Jones, D.D., he resigned his position is the College and was admitted as trial into the North Carolina Conference in the fall of 1839 and into full connection in 1841. He traveled here several years, filling among other appointments Plttsboro and Newbern stations. the latter at the time one of the strongest appointments in the Conference.
In 1846 or 47, at the solicitation of his friend, Rev. Lorenzo Lea, he transferred to the Memphis Conference and having married again and possessing a number of slaves, purchased a farm near Jackson and was appointed Professor in the Memphis Conference Female Institute, then presided over by Brother Lea. In l854 he succeeded Brother Lea in the Presidency of the Institute, and from that time was regularly appointed to that position, having been, at his death, connected with it as Professor and President 43 years. He was probably, at his death, the oldest educator of young women in the South, at least having been engaged in that important work a greater number of consecutive years than any other man.
Dr. Jones was way married four times. First, as we have seen, while a tutor at Randolph Macon College, and the last time only, a few years age. His last wife survives him, hating most tenderly and lovingly ministered to him in his increasing years and infirmities, and mourns now her desolate lot. Thirteen children in all were born unto him, five of whom are now living, all faithful members of the Church of which their father was an honored minister, his sons eminent in their professions, and his two daughters cultured women worthily married.
The virtues of Dr. Jones were many. He was the very soul of honor, scorning every ignoble thing, and as modest and refined as a pure woman. Chaste in thought as well as is word and act, every useless thing was abhorrent to him. In nature gentle, easily yielding to entreaty, a lover of peace, and hating contention and strife, he might have been mistaken for a weak character, but where principal, honor or truth were involved as man possessed greater firmness.
In his family and in his school his discipline was mild, tender, persuasive, gently drawing all hearts to him willing to render a loving obedience, but as occasion required he was as firm as the mist rigid could demand. In the early days of Christianity, or in the time of the Inquisition he would have been a martyr I verily believe had all the world gone astray and repudiated the Christian religion he, like Milton's Abdiel, would have been—
"Faithful found among the faithless
Faithful only be among innumerable false."
Emotionable but not excitable, calm but not indifferent, reserved but not reticent, there was always a quiet undercurrent of feeling that trembled in his voice whenever he spoke of his religious life and his hope of heaven that showed plainly that he "kept himself in the love of God," while he sought constantly "to build himself up upon his holy faith."
If it be true, and we double not it is, that the greatest seed of every country is educated mothers, then he who gives his life to the proper training of the future mothers of the land is laying broad and deep the foundations for the stability and prosperity of both the church and State. This was his life work, and well and faithfully did he perform it. Nany hundreds of young ladies passed under his moulding hand, educated is heart as well as in mind, and where they live, they are among the noblest women of our land, and wherever found they breathe his name with reverence and love. How much of this work was gratuitously done the world will never know, bet many, unable to bear the expense, were boarded and educated by him, his only reward being their lore and the consciousness that he was doing goad. With such a life, if it had pleased the great Father to give him an unclouded intellect in dying, and a consciousness that his departure was at hand, he surely would have said with St. Paul. "I am ready. . . .I have fought the good fight. I have kept the faith. I have finished my course: and henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shell give me in that day." His life says it, though his lips spoke it not.

J. H. HIRSCH
GOODSPEED'S HISTORY OF TENNESSEE (Madison Co. edition, 1887), pages 872-873, carries biographical sketch of Jacob H. Hirsch.
J. H. Hirsch, saddler and dealer in buggies, carriages and hides, was born in November, 1839 in Jefferson County, Ky., and is of a family of seven children, born to Chas. and Catharine Hirsch. The father was born in Germany, the mother in the United States; they were married at Louisville, Ky., where the father practiced veterinary surgery, until his death, about 1850, the mother following in 1866. Our subject remained at home until he was seventeen years old; he then served an apprenticeship of three years at the harness trade, with R. E. Miles of Louisville. He then went to Aberdeen, Miss., plying his trade until the commencement of the war; he then continued his trade in the service of the Confederate Government, until his marriage, in 1863, to Ada B. Kelley, a native of Christian County, Ky. At the close of the war, he moved to Leavenworth, Kas., where he remained a few months, and then moved to Lexington, Mo.,, where he resided one year; he then made Paducah, Ky., his home for four years; then came to Jackson and established his saddlery and hide trade at the corner of Lafayette and Liberty Streets, where he remained until 1874. He then built the business house he now occupies, on the corner of College and Liberty Streets. He was also engaged in the saddlery trade while in Kansas and Missouri. He has recently added a line of carriages, etc., and carries a stock (including harness stock) of about $2,500. He has bought as high as $10,000 worth of hides in a single year. To the marriage referred to above, four sons and one daughter have been born, the daughter and two sons still living. He and his family are members of the Presbyterian Church, and he is also a member of the I.O.O.F. and K. of H.*

John was presumably a child of David Cochran in a former marriage. David and Martha Bradley were married in Henry Co., Tenn., Feb. 28. 1846. He was an Old School Presbyterian preacher and a school teacher.
A HORRIBLE DEATH
Mrs. Martha Cochran, widow of Professor David Cochran, while standing near the grate in her room last Saturday afternoon, had the misfortune to have her clothing take fire. She passed from one room to another and returned to the first room before discovering the accident. She thought she saw a newspaper under her feet on fire and attempted to stamp it out; and upon locking behind her she discovered that her clothing were in a blaze. She obtained a shawl and wrapped it around herself in the hope of extinguishing the flames but in vain. The flame communicated to the hair of her head, burning it almost literally off; burning her eyelids and lashes, entering her mouth, blistering her tongue and ruining her frightfully from her waist to her shoe tops. She was literally roasted and when assistance arrived, was utterly helpless and suffering a thousand deaths every minute. Her flesh was cooked through and the fearful heat penetrated her very vitals. The bands of her underclothing were burned deep into the flesh of her body. From head to foot her flesh was parched to a crisp and her suffering, though heroically borne, beggars human description. She died about six o'clock on Sunday morning and in spite of her bodily miseries, died only as the true Christian can die, the mother of three living children, not one was with her. Her eldest son was filling a ministerial appointment in Henderson County. Her youngest son was in Lebanon attending the law school and her only daughter was at her home in Nashville. When they arrived, in obedience to the sad news which the wires bore them, their noble mother, beautiful in the richest sense of the word, was dead. . . .

Goodspeeds HISTORY OF TENNESSEE (Madison Co. Edition, 1887), page 689.
Hon. David L. Murrell, dry goods merchant of Jackson, Tenn., native of Madison County, born May 9, 1856, is a son of Thomas and Eliza (Beattie) Murrell, both natives of Ireland. David L. was reared and educated in this county. He first engaged in the dry goods business as clerk with his father, who came to Jackson in 1845 and engaged in the mercantile business with his brother - Lindsay Murrell. In 1884 our subject succeeded this firm in business, carrying a full and select stock of dry goods and shoes, controlling a fair share of the trade in this line in the city and county. August 21, 1878, he married Miss Leila S. Morgan, of Memphis, a native of Murfreesboro, Tenn. They have two sons - David L. and Marian M. Mr. Murrell is a Democrat in politics and was a "floterial" representative for Madison and Henderson Counties in the State Legislature in 1884-85. He is a member of the K. of H. Himself and wife are members of the First Presbyterian Church, of this city, and he is recognized as one among the reliable and enterprising business men of Jackson.
These Murrells scent related to the family of the notorious JOHN A. MURRELL (born 1806), whose mother, Zilpah Murrell and other members of their family lived near Denmark in Madison County. I have personally examined the public records in this county concerning this Murrell group. Prof. James Lal Penick, Jr. has studied J. A. Murrell's biographical and genealogical origins in a scholarly manner in THE GREAT WESTERN LAND PIRATE: JOHN A MUURELL IN LEGEND AND HISTORY (1981). The name Murrell is now most often pronounced as two syllables: mur-rell. However, in old-times the name was pronounced, judging from its frequent spelling in the records, as one syllable: marl. To each, his or her own preference La such matters. . . .

This is the exact spelling of these names!
MURRELL GENEALOGICAL NOTES
Robert and Sarah Murrell were aspiring native of County Derry, Ireland with family immigrated to the U.S. His naturalization declaration of intention, filed in the Court of Common Pleas, Hamilton Co., Ohio. August 5, 1846, reads in part, Robert Morrell, a native of the County of Derry, Ireland, aged about sixty-six years . . . who emigrated from London Derry on the 2nd day of June A.D. 1843 and arrived at Philadelphia on the 14th day of July A.D. 1843 and who intends to reside within the . . . United States to wit, Crosley Township, Ham. Co., Ohio. ("Family Findings," Mid-West Genealogical Society, Jackson, Tenn., vol. 8, no. 2, April 1976): cited hereafter as Fam. Fndg.
Robert Murrell seems to have died in Ohio and his wife and children moved to Jackson in Tenn. Reported in the census of Civil Dist. 15, Madison Co., Auqust 1850, were James Murrell and his family; perhaps he was an older son of Robt. and Sarah Murrell. Living nearby were (page 219), Thomas Murrell. 29; Eliza Murrell, 24; Sarah Murrell, 64; John Murrell, 19, all born in Ireland (unquote) For reasons of their own, Thomas Murrell sold to Sarah Murrell the lot whereon they then lived in Jackson, March 23, 1852. (Madison Co. Deed Bk. 15, page 562; reg. April 16, 1852)
Sarah Murrell executed her LWT, June 7, 1857. It was proven Feb. 8, 1859; identified herself as the widow of Robert Murrell; to her youngest dau. Margaret all that I have in Jackson. Tenn. & in Ohio, with her youngest son, Lindsey Murrell. (IBID., Will Bk. 7, page 39) According to her Riverside tombstone, whic she shared with a Campbell granddaughter, she had died in September of 1858.
Margaret Murrell married Erasmus Sydenham Campbell (born 1813), May 11. 1864; they lived near Humboldt, Tenn. Their oldest child, Margaret Lindsay Campbell, is buried beside her maternal grandmother in Riverside. (See Fam. Fndg., vol. 10. no. 1, 1978, pages 27-28)
The James Murrell family mowed away from Madison County, it seems in the 1860s, but the Thomas Murrell family continued to live in Jackson for generations. Two of the sons of Thomas and Elisa Murrell, Thos., Jr. and Lindsey, were local merchants.
