fame the property of George M.
I,axeinler, who had moved there
from Fast Tennessee, holding llie
position ol Indian agent of llie
United Stales government, and
having a store al what is now
known as Lavender, Floyd county.
After thedfulh of George l.axen
der, in IS.'tll, Dick became the
property of his sister, .Mrs. .loliu
Huy, of Nexvnan, and was assigned
a home upon the White Oak plan
tation now owned by ( apt. .lulln
l>. Hay and Mr. Warren McIhoii.
In IHft'J Dick married Henrietta,
the daughter of the “black mam
my” of (lie plantation.
No hand upon llie farm xxas
more reliable than Dick, lie xxas
active, strong and fearless; there
xxas no young mule so wild that lie
would not undertake to rid and
ploxv. Ilis good ehuractor caused
him to lie promoted in I Sait from
farm hand lo carriage driver for
his mistress. This place lie held
unlit July, ISltl, when his uumg
master, Lavender Ray. went lo the
war. Dick gladly accompanied
him as his servant and cook.
They joined I he Nexvnan I i minis,
First Regiment of Georgia Volun
teer Infantry at Monterey, Ya.
Dick at once became the cook for
mess niimlHM' six. This mess was
coin posed of Lieut. Andrexx Brown,
Joe Nat Beadles, Nick Orr, John
Favor, Bill Whatley, Billie Bead
les, Jcpthu Davis, Minor Davis,
John Goodwin, Alvin Freeman
and Lavender Ray—all young men
xvlio prided themselves upon the
soldierly qualities of the mess. The
lirst live were killed in battle.
From that time until the regiment
was mustered out of service in
ISil'J, no matter how long the
march, or cold the weather, Dick
never failed to have the meals
ready upon time, lie was at the
attack upon Cheat Mountain, the
battle of Greenbrier River, and on
the long march from Greonbriar
River to Winchester, Va„ in 18111.
Dirk was with Stonewall Jack-
son in his attack upon Bath, Yu.,
and Hancock. Md. This campaign
is remembered by the terrible
spell of cold w eather which then
prevailed, and the great sulliering
of the soldiers. The test of en
durance after leaving Hancock was
xvlio could, in spite of the expos
ure. go further on to Romney.
Dick was one of the fexx who stuck
to his post. At Romney live negro
servants of the regiment deserted
and went to the enemy and free
dom. Dick remained true to his
master and his company.
In May. 18(13. Dick went with
his young master, Lavender Hay,
into the First Regiment of Georgia
Cavalry, lie was at the light at
Rowell's River, Hast Tennessee, in

From July, 1833, to July. 1834,
Dick spent in Atlanta. Ii is master
liaxing been assigned to duty in
llie foil federate Arsenal at Unit
In August, 1834, Dick crossed
the Chattahoochee River with the
army of General Hood, going as
far as North Alabama. His mas-
ter being there assigned to duty as
Ordinuiieo < Mlicer of Iverson's Di-
\ isioii of Cavalry then stationed at
Jonesboro, Ga., they returned to
Unit place. Nearly every day the
cavalry had skirmishes xxith the
enemy to keep his foraging parties
from the counties of Campbell,
Coweta, Fayette and Clayton.
From Jonesboro, in November,
1834, Dick saw the tires which
consumed Atlanta. The next day,
he was present when the right
wing of Sherman’s army made an
attack upon Iverson’s cavalry. At
this time < icucral Wheeler came up
havingjusl returned from Tennes
see with reinforcements and by
continued skirmishing and light
ing. kept the enemy from destroy
ing the Central Railroad. He was
in Macon when a part of Sher
man's army attacked W heeler’s
cavalry at that place. Dick then,
with the cavalry, crossed the track
of Sherman’s army, and was with
that force in protecting Augusta,
from tin* enemy.
Dick then crossed into South
Carolina, following Sherman in liis
devastating march through that
State, entering Columbia directly
after it hud been burned by ttie
enemy. Dick was with li is mas
ter at ttie headquarters of Gen. 1’.
M. B. Young, then commanding
Iverson’s Division, at Statesboro,
X. C., in April. 1835. when Gen.
Johnson surrendered. I faring the
war Dick made two trips from
Tennessee to Georgia and back
atone; he was entirely reliable and
trustworthy. Though brave, lie
was never known to have a fight.
He. made friends with all. By
reason of what he had learned as a
cook during the war. Dick became
proficient jn the art of barbecuing
meats, and at every barbecue in ,
and around Newnan he was called
upon to preside over the pit.
