Our dear friend and brother, Rev. William Pierce Hickman, sleepeth; and the family, request me to write his obituary. He was the son of Rev. Joshua and Mary Hickman. He also had three brothers who became Methodist preachers-Asbury, Frank, and Thomas Hickman; the two former were once members of the Tennessee Conference. Rev. W. P. Hickman was born Feb. 22, 1822, in Franklin County, Tenn.; was baptized in infancy; made a profession of religion and joined the Methodist Church in early life. He became a minister of the gospel, and was admitted on trial into the Tennessee Annual Conference of the M. E. Church, South, in October, 1846, in Nashville, Tenn. Two years later he was admitted into full connection, and Bishop Robert Paine ordained him a deacon in the Church [?] God, Oct. 29, 1848. He was ordained an elder by Bishop Wm. Capers in Athens, Ala., Oct. 27, 1850. He was married in Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 11, 1856, to Mrs. Agnes Slayden, the late Dr. W. D. F. Sawrie performing the ceremony. At his own request he was located at Murfreesboro, Tenn., October, 1857. He then settled on a little farm on the waters of South Harpeth in Davidson County, Tenn., and that place was his home till 1890, when he removed to Obion County, Tenn., where he died in great peace Jan. 13, 1892. From his admission on probation into the Conference in 1846 till his location in 1857 he traveled the following circuits in the order in which I write them: Cypress, Shoal, Obedís River, Sparta, Bellfonte, Cumberland, Fountain Head, Wayne, Nashville, Centerville, and Nashville again. As a local preacher he was faithful, and a man of as much diligence in business as I have seen almost anywhere and at almost any time. I doubt if any man within ten miles of his old Davidson County home performed more manual labor than did he during the years he was strictly a local preacher. Having known him intimately in that relation it is but proper to say, even then he loved the itinerancy, and worked in full harmony with it in his local rank. In 1872 he was employed as a supply on the Smith Springs Circuit. In October, 1873, he was readmitted to membership into the Tennessee Annual Conference, and from thence till he ceased to be effective he traveled the following charges in the order I give them: Smith Springs, three years; Waverly, Bethlehem, two years; Pope, Kingston, White Bluff Mission, Fernvale, Pinewood, Yellow Creek, and McEwings and Sugar Creek Mission. In October, 1886, he was superannuated. This relation grieved him at the time, but a few months later he wrote me: "My brethren were much better judges of my case than myself. I have not really been able to preach but twice since." That relation was continued till lifeís long warfare closed. It was in 1866 that Bishop H. N. McTyeire, appointed me the pastor on the old Nashville Circuit. From that time to 1883 I was the pastor of Brother Hickman and family five years. We lived neighbors. He has gone more than once in the bounds of my charge to preach a funeral sermon. I have gone within the bounds of his for the same purpose. We have helped each other time and again in protracted meetings. To me he would unbosom himself and tell me many things that showed him to be of a confiding spirit, and when I told him things in confidence I felt that they were safe in his bosom. We have traveled together; met at District and Annual Conferences, and if there was a man in the Tennessee Annual Conference that I knew like a closely perused, well studied book it was the Rev. William P. Hickman, and it is with pleasure that I say in his living "there lived a man"-a man true to God, true to himself, true to his devoted Agnes, and to his stepchildren; true and loving and indulgent to his own dear children; and it is a mystery to me that he gave to each and to all of them the opportunities for education which he did, thus raising both his stepchildren and his own in credit, They all loved him. But I must speak of Brother Hickman as a preacher, and as to his itinerant work. He was a plain, earnest, practical, common sense preacher; and out of the twenty-five appointments to which he was assigned he went to and served each of them to the extent of his honest ability. And on these various charges he labored with a true and rational zeal, and with that varied opposition and success which nearly all ministers meet to a greater or less extent on their different fields of toil. In all of his pastoral charges he was faithful to what he conceived to be his duty. In some of these he was very popular and quite successful, and occasionally he witnessed the abundant prosperity through his instrumentality of our common Zion on his charges; and his soul, under these happy circumstances, was filled unutterably full of glory and of God. And in the last great day I doubt not that many, very many, people from Cypress Circuit to Obed's River, and from the old Bellfonte to Sugar Creek, will rise up and say: "He converted me as an instrument in the hands of God from the error of my way; saved my immortal soul from death, and hid a multitude of sins." Brother Hickman was a warm-hearted Christian gentleman. He was clothed with humility as with a garment. His daughter, Mrs., Bettie H. Mays, in a very affectionate and intelligent letter, says: "Father was attacked with la grippe and pneumonia combined January 6. He suffered intensely during the few days he was allowed to remain with us, but there was no complaining, no murmuring. O how irreparable is our loss! His counsel his prayers, his pious example which he always set before his children, to be received no more, But thank God, while we mourn, I know such a life as my father lived cannot be lost; such a man cannot really die." That is true my sister, your father is not dead, but has gone to view that land to which a hundred Methodist preachers that voted him admission in the Conference had gone; who before him their journey had trod. Dear old friend, neighbor, brother, and true yokefellow in the gospel, I shall see you no more on earth, but by Godís grace I shall meet you in our Father's house on high.

On Christmas day, 1891, Mrs. CORNELIA ADELINE WEBB passed quietly and peacefully from human vision, in her eighty-first year; and on the day following the mortal remnant was laid in the Bethlehem churchyard beside her husband, who for more than forty years had been awaiting her in this solitary resting place. She was the daughter of the Hon. Richard Stanford, who for twenty years, between 1796 and 1816, represented the district in Congress. In her early girlhood she attended the then celebrated school of Miss Burke in Hillsboro, and was a member of my father's Sunday School class; and I have often heard him speak of her beauty, gentleness, grace, graciousness, and piety. Of her schoolmates, the young girls of that day, she told me that she and Mrs. Paul Cameron alone remained; and this scant roll is now reduced to only one. When scarcely seventeen she married Alexander S. Webb, of Person County, who belonged to one of the most prominent families in middle North Carolina. My first recollection of her was when Mr. Webb moved from Person to what was then Orange County, in order to commit his sons to the care of the late Wm. J. Brigham, and soon after getting established in the new home the husband and father sickened and died; leaving the rearing of eleven children--seven sons and four daughters--to the mother so sadly bereaved by his untimely death; and no mother ever more nobly performed this work and labor of love-the mother and children constituting the largest family circle in my knowledge, with only one breach in it for more than forty years. Nothing better can be said of the daughters, than that they are worthy of the mother. The sons are all upright and useful men, honorable and honored in their various communities as merchants, as farmers, in the forum, in the sacred desk; while on the rostrum the Webb Brothers, late of Culleoka, now of Bellbuckle, Tenn., have won the enviable distinction of having conducted for fifteen or twenty years the best training school for boys west of the Alleghenies. Left a widow at forty this mother reared and trained this large family of earnest, faithful, honorable, and useful men and women, and her children, and the children of her children's children, rose up to call her blessed. Such perfected work stamps the worker as the purest gold. And yet she lived a singularly quiet and secluded life. She very rarely went out of the door of her own house except to enter the doors of the house of God, and though she visited no one everybody visited her, and everybody felt sure of her sympathy, and everybody loved her because she loved everybody, and because no word ever passed her lips that was not kind and sweet and true. And so from that quiet and retired home a calm and gentle and helpful radiance went out, and her house was a sort of Bethel, a house of God and a gate of heaven, where her children and her grandchildren and her neighbors and their children seemed to get into touch with a higher and purer and better life through her example of sweetness and gentleness of faith and patience, of tenderness, sympathy and Christlikeness. And as she lingered on the hither shore in great physical weakness, but in full possession of her mental faculties, all her children and many of her grandchildren visited her and brightened her last days, and were themselves strengthened by her cheerful resignation to the will of God. Among many other friends of the family it was my privilege to be at her bedside, and I shall never forget the brightness of her face and the warm grasp of my hand with both of hers and her moist eyes as she said: "O I am so glad to see you." And I knew then it was the last time. And after a little while the light that had been shining with such quiet and gentle radiance ceased to be longer visible to us who are still in the body. Some say this is death, but those of clearer vision see that it is only "fading as the morning star fades into the light of heaven."

OUR WEBB KIN OF DIXIE, by. W. J. Webb, Oxford, N.C., 1940, page 53


(Page 94)


The name Stanford occurs in the records of Dorchester Co., Md., early in the settlement of that state. In Will Book 26, page 19 we find a record of the will of William Stanford proven in 1749. He was probably a son Of John Stanford, an early settler in Md. William names wife Elizabeth and son Richard. In Will Book 31 -1110-under date 1759 we find record of a will of Elizabeth Stanford, probably the Widow of William. She makes her son Richard her Executor, and names daughters: Sarah Staplefoot, Chebed Pritchett, Rebecca Wallis, and Rhody Waters. We think this son Richard was the father of Richard who settled in Orange Co., N.C., soon after the Rev. War. He was born Jan. 18, 1742 (43). He married Elizabeth (probably a Miss Medford) and lived in or near the town of Vienna, on the "Eastern Shore." The Stanfords for several generations had lived thereabouts, --owners of large plantations and many slaves. The children of this first marriage were Robert and William (both lost at sea leaving no issue), Celia (not traced), Arianna, died unmarried, Elizabeth married Abner Tappan (her grandson Henry Howland Crapo of New Bedford, Mass., wrote a comprehensive family history giving much detail of the Maryland Stanfords), Richard, Jr., our North Carolina forebear. Richard Stanford, Sr. married second Mrs. Russum. Of this union there were three children; Dr. Clement Sanford who continued to occupy the home of his parents, Algernon Sydney married Anna DíShiell, Henrietta married William McDonald.

Mary Eunice, dau. of Dr. Clement Stanford above was the mother of the eminent physician of New Orleans Dr. Stanford Emerson Chaille. The Stanford plantation was near Vienna. A large mansion of many rooms, fronting on Nanticoke River, surrounded with a typical Virginia garden, "a Garden of Eden." Nearby was an old brick church, now long ago in ruins. Many of the family were buried in that village churchyard. "It was a large family who lived on the plantation in Richard Stanford's day."

In 1785 Richard Stanford Sr. with two of his youngest sons, set out to transport a cargo of produce to Baltimore. Not well at the start he died during a storm on the Chesapeake Bay-- the boat drifted seaward, stranded near Norfolk, and there he was buried.

Richard Stanford, Jr., went to college, helped his two youngest brothers secure a classical education, and furnished a home for his unmarried, sister, Arianna. After moving to North Carolina he taught school in Orange Co., and later practiced law. He acquired many acres in Orange and was one time owner of Mt. Tirzah, the home site of his second wife's father. Probably he made his home there while he was in Congress, though his will was recorded in Orange Co.

Many of the Maryland kin of Richard Stanford, Jr., moved to the state of Miss. His oldest sister Elizabeth married Mr. Tappan and lived, in Mass. Her descendants lived in New England and the western states. I am indebted to her grandson Mr. Henry Howland Crapo for my information about the forebears of our Richard Stanford.

Richard Stanford (1767-1816), a school teacher, came from Dorchester Co., Md., and settled in Orange Co., N.C., during or soon after the Rev. War. From 1797 to the time of his death he was a member of the U.S. Congress. He died in Washington City, and was buried in the cemetery there where congressmen and other distinguished men were interred. He was a son of Richard Stanford of Vienna, Md. His Sister Elizabeth married Abner Tappan of Newburyport, Mass. There was another Stanford in Orange Co., -possibly a relative.

In 1791 he married Jennette, a dau. of Alexander Mebane of Orange Co. The will of Alexander Mebane (1795), Book C., page 53, Orange Co. shows that he had a large estate and a large family. In this will he names dau. Jennette Stanford and her two daughters, Ariana, and Mary.

"Mr. Stanford was a very conscientious and upright man, and gained such a hold upon the people of his district that after a few years no one would offer to run against him for congress. He was elected at the age of 28, and was reelected nine times consecutively thereafter." He was a close friend of John Randolph of Va., and of William Gaston of N.C. Randolph said "In him I lost the best political friend that I had left on the floor of Congress."

"The public never lost a more faithful, conscientious and zealous servant."
