Register Report for John Oxendine
Generation 1
1.
John Oxendine-1 was born in 1693 in VA. He died about 1755 in NC.
Notes for John Oxendine:
General Notes:
The earliest records of John Oxendine place him in Northumberland County, Virginia.
Northumberland was a name given in 1648 to an area between the Rappahannock and Potomac
rivers. Prior to 1648, the area was known to English colonists as Chickacoan (also Chickcoun), an
Indian District. The first white settler is said to have been Colonel John Mattrom in 1635.
Records show that John Oxendine was a mulatto who was indentured to Joseph Holt/Hoult in
Northumberland County, Virginia until he was 30 years old. After he was released from the indenture,
he married and fathered four children in the county. The births of these children were recorded at St.
Stephen's Parish, Northumberland County from 1733 to 1739: "Benj'n Oxendane son to Jo'n born Apr
12, 1733; Jenne Oxendane daug'r to do born Feby 14, 1735; Clark Oxendan daug'r to Jo'n born Novr
28, 1736; Jo'n Oxendane son to do born June 10, 1739" (Virginia County Court Abstracts, V. 3,
Northumberland County Record of Births, page 112). By about 1750, John Oxendine and his family
had settled in that part of Bladen County, North Carolina which became Robeson County. The earliest
record for him in Bladen County, NC is a deed dated 27 Aug 1753: Thos Fale. 100 acres on Pugh's
Marsh Swamp on the No. side of Pugh's Marsh whereon John Oxendine now lives.
The first record of John Oxendine in Northumberland County, Virginia is found in an inventory of the
estate of Joseph Holt/Hoult dated 18 June 1712. Listed among other items in the inventory is the item
"one molato man named Jno. having eleven years to serve at 500 per year - 5500". Indentures were
legal contracts for a specific length of time, and this indenture would terminate at about 1723. This
indenture was listed as an estate item because it was an asset which could be sold to another person
to raise money. In this case, the indenture remained with the estate and Ann Holt/Hoult, the widow of
Joseph.
The next record which mentions John Oxendine was made In 1719. In that year, Judith
Bowling/Bowlin, another servant in the household of Ann Holt/Hoult, stated that "John Figrow
(mallatto)" was the father of her child. A later record proves that John Figrow/Figro and John
Oxendine was the same person. (Records of Indentured Servants and of Certificates for Land,
Northumberland County, Virginia, 1650-1795, compiled by W. Preston Haynie, 2008, Heritage Books,
Inc., Westminster, Maryland)
Judith Bowling/Bolin's child was a mulatto born to a white woman, and under the law, a mulatto child
born to a white servant would have been indentured until the child was 30 or 31 years old. In
October 1750, 31 years after the birth of a child to Judith Bowling, Mathew Bowlin petitioned for his
freedom dues from Phillip Fisher, and he was discharged from the service of Fisher. It is very likely
that Mathew Bowlin was the son of John Oxendine. Judith Bowling was also the mother of Mary
Bowling, born March 31, 1723. Mary Bowling was indentured to Ann Holt/Hoult until Mary reached the
age of 31. (Records of Indentured Servants and of Certificates for Land, Northumberland County,
Virginia, 1650-1795, compiled by W. Preston Haynie, 2008, Heritage Books, Inc., Westminster,
Maryland)
In 1724, John Oxendine petitioned the court to set him free from the indenture since he had served
the full term. "20 Jan 1724/25. Upon the Pet [Petition] of John Oxendine als Figro vs Ann Hoult, the
Deft came into Court and objected against his petition because it was preferr'd nine months before,
the said Oxendine als Figro was entitled to Freedom and it appearing to this Court by the oaths of
Wm Willday and Elizabeth his wife that ye sd Oxendine als Figro was free in June last past, it is the
oppinion of this Court that he is free from any services that the said Ann Holt can or may claim from
him and it being the further opinion of this Court that they not agreeing that the said Oxendine als.
Figro should have any Claim from his said Mistress for his serving her above his Indented time, it is
ordered that the said Ann Holt pay all Costs that has accrued on occasion of this suit since Septbr
last." (Records of Indentured Servants and of Certificates for Land, Northumberland County, Virginia,
1650-1795, compiled by W. Preston Haynie, 2008, Heritage Books, Inc., Westminster, Maryland)

1650-1795, compiled by W. Preston Haynie, 2008, Heritage Books, Inc., Westminster, Maryland)
William and Elizabeth Wildy were residents of Northumberland County. William Wildy and Joseph Holt
served together as Court appointed appraisers of estates, and the Wildys and Holts were neighbors.
Through this acquaintance, William and Elizabeth Wildy would have been familiar with the business
affairs, including indentures, of Joseph Holt/Hoult.
The records indicate that John Oxendine was a mulatto who was indentured for 30 years. In a record
written in 1712, John was identified as an adult with eleven years remaining in the indenture (to
terminate in 1723); and in 1724, John Oxendine alias Figro petitioned for his freedom. John Oxendine
was not an indentured servant with four or even seven years to serve to pay for his passage to
Virginia, and he was not indentured as an apprentice until age 21 to learn a skill or other values.
Excluding those reasons, the remaining reason for indenture was a law passed in 1691 stating that a
free English woman who bore a child with a negro or mulatto had to pay a fine of 15 pounds sterling
to churchwardens within a month of the child's birth, and if she didn't have the money, she would be
hired out for five years. In either case, the child would be bound out until the age of 30 years. As of
1705, the child of an Indian and the child, grandchild, or great-grandchild of a "negro" was deemed,
accounted, held and taken to be a mulatto
John Oxendine was born to a free woman. He was not born to a slave or he would not have been
granted freedom after serving his indenture. As of 1662, the child of an enslaved mother was also a
slave for life; as of this date, a child received his status from his mother.
John was identified with two surnames, Figrow/Figro and Oxendine. A review of illegitimate births
listed in St. Stephens Parish in Northumberland County, the same parish where John's children were
baptized, shows that 60% of those children were identified by only their mothers' surnames, as in
John Figrow/Figro. The occurrence of children identified by a surname other than the mother's
surname was 5.5%; the occurrence of double surnames where the mother's surname followed
another surname was 6.25% and the occurrence of the mother's surname preceding another surname
was 2%. The review shows that most illegitimate children used the mother's surname, but when two
surnames were used, the surname of the father preceded that of the mother, as in John Oxendine,
alias Figrow/Figro. This is the case in the single example of a double surname where both parents
were identified, "Isaac Bray Hogan, son to Isaac Bray and Nancy Hogan, a bastard child was born".
Even though the sample study was small, it can be concluded that, in the case of John Oxendine alias
Figrow, Oxendine was the surname of the father and Figrow/Figro was the surname of the mother.
The earliest occurrence of the surname Oxendine in the United States is John Oxendine in
Northumberland County, Virginia. The closest surname recognition is with Roger Oxenden who
immigrated to Virginia in 1656. "Howell Pryse hath proved right by testimony extant to 1450 acres of
land assigned unto him for importation of ...Roger Oxenden..." (Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Charles
City County, Court Orders 1655-1656, compiled by Beverly Fleet) Howell Pryse was a sheriff and
resident at Flowerdew Hundred, one of the parishes within Charles City County. Howell Pryse
received a "head right" of 50 acres for each person whose transportation he paid from England to
Virginia, in this case, he was given 1450 acres for paying for the passage of 29 people, including
Roger Oxenden. Roger Oxenden entered into an indenture or contract to pay for his passage to
Virginia; such contracts often were not recorded. In general, the length of the indenture was four
years for non-convicts and seven years for convicts, during which time the indentured servant worked
seven days a week, was not paid, but was given food, shelter, and clothing, although of poor quality
and minimal amount. In most cases, the work was household or unskilled agricultural labor. After
serving the length of the indenture, the indentured servant was paid freedom dues of corn, tools, and
clothing and was free to leave the master's property and go about his/her life.
Roger Oxenden, English colonist to Virginia, might have been associated with the Oxenden family of
Kent, England. The Oxenden family was one of title and prominence. Those in service to such
prominent families often took the surname of their employers, and such might have been the situation
with Roger Oxenden who did not seem to be a person of means since he did not have funds to pay

with Roger Oxenden who did not seem to be a person of means since he did not have funds to pay
for his passage to America.
The next earliest record of the surname Oxenden in the United States is for a family in colonial
Massachusetts; there is a record for the birth of Ann Oxenden in 1728 to George and Ann Oxenden.
Given the distance and difficulty of travel during the colonial period, it's highly unlikely that John
Oxendine was connected with the family in Massachusetts.
Figrow/Figro is probably a misspelling of Figaro. The surname Figaro is "Of uncertain origin and
derivation; the name is recorded in France, Italy, and Catalonia (Figaró, alongside its variant Figueró),
and is possibly related to French figuier, Italian fico, or Catalan figuera 'fig tree'." (Ancestry.com)
John Oxendine and unknown spouse married. They had the following children:
i.
Benjamin Oxendine was born on 12 Apr 1733 in Northumberland Co, VA.
Notes for Benjamin Oxendine:
General Notes:
Benjamin Oxendine b. 1733 is not listed in tax records for Bladen Co, NC or in other
records from the 18th century, so it can be assumed he died at an early age
ii.
Jenne Oxendine was born on 14 Feb 1735 in Northumberland Co, VA.
iii.
Clark Oxendine was born on 28 Nov 1736 in Northumberland Co, VA.
iv.
John Oxendine was born on 10 Jun 1739 in Northumberland Co, VA. He died in 1797 in
South Carolina.

"There was a John Oxendine and his family in Charleston from before 1764-1797. There
are many records supporting this. When John died in 1797 he mentioned in his will his
wife Mary, his niece Ann Oxendine and two Wolf children who he identifies as his
grandchildren. Also mentioned is a slave named 'Billy' who he wished to have taught a
trade and then given his freedom at age 25. It is not known how John and his family
missed the census. I have read in one article that there were many Indians in Charleston
during the time and not all were counted. John Oxendine's common law wife was Mary
Marshall. Mary is listed as having a fair complexion and light colored hair."

Note: Robeson County was formed from Bladen County in 1787. The fact that Charles Oxendine was

Charles Oxendine's place of residence remained unchanged although the political jurisdiction
changed from Bladen to Robeson County.

More Than 4,500 Are Doing Work in Their Schools in Robeson
by M. L. Lowry
At the session of the Legisllature in 1885 a law was passed providing separate and distinct schools
for the Indians of Robeson county. In 1887, under the influence of Hamilton McMillan, a law was
passed providing for the establishment of a normal school for the Indians of Robeson county. The
law stipulated that only those above 15 years of age might attend, and then only if they signed a
contract to each at least one year. Five hundred dollars was appropriated from the State Treasury for
maintenance only. A provision was carred that, if a building was not provided, and the money actually
used for the maintenance of a school, the Legislature of 1889 should repeal the Act.
The Legislature appointed a board of trustes to carry out the provisions of this act. A subscription was
made among both whites and Indians which which an acre of land across the road from what is now
New Hope church was purchased to be used as a site. A building was erected and Rev. W. L. Moore
was elected the first teacher and was able to begin work in the fall of 1887 with an enrollment of 15
students. No studies were offered either then, or for many years after, above the seventh grade.
Rev. W. L. Moore drew from the State the first mony for the education of the Indians of Robeson
county.
First Diploma in 1905
The Legislature of 1889 granted a sum of $1,000 and the same amount was appropriated annually for
many years afterwards. Rev. D. F. Lowry was granted the first diploma in 1905 for having completed
the Scientific course.
As time passed on further improvements were made both in the teaching force and in equipment, so
that by 1906-07, there had been established 22 schools for the Indian race. The average term was
70 days. The enrollment in these schools was 1,187. There were employed in these schools of the
Indian race eight first grade teachers and nine second grade teachers. The yearly salary of these
teachers totaled $2,173.19. The value of the property of the Indian schools throughout the county
amounted to $38,040. (rest of article is not presented here)

Hamilton McMillan and Judge L. R. Varser Induced Legislature to Give Adequate Financial Support
for Cherokee Colony
By G. G. Maughon, Superintendent of Indian Normal School
In 1887, under the influence of Honorable Hamilton McMillan, representative in the Legislature from
Robeson county, a law was passed providing for the establishment of a Normal School for the Indians
of Robeson county...Rev. W. L. Moore, who had taken four years of Normal work, took the initiatve
and a meeting was called. Only four men responded. Finally, the Legislature appointed W. L. Moore,
Preston Locklear, James Oxendine, who was a former county commissioner, and James Dial, Sr. as
trustees to carry out the provisions of the Act. It gave them authority to elect three other trustees,
thus bringing the trustee body up to seven. J. J. Oxendine, Isaac Braboy, and Ollen Oxendine were
elected.
This Act of the General Assembly of North Carolina was ratified March 7, 1887. These Indian trustees
were appointed and given full power to rent or acquire suitable buildings, to appoint teachers and to
do all necessary things to inaugurate a Normal School...One acre of land across the road opposite
New Hope church was bought from Rev. William Jacobs for $8.00, on which was erected a two-story
building which would have cost around $1,000.00 had not a large amount of material and labor been
given gratis. Prof. W. L. Moore, who had been a teacher in the public schools of Robeson County for
several years, not only gave $200.00 in cash toward the erection of the building, but he also quit
teaching for a year and gave his services in the interest of the school in order that the project might be
put over within the two years required by the legislative act.
Prof. Moore was elected the first principal and teacher. He began work in the fall of 1887 with an
enrollment of fifteen students. He kept the school together during the year and, thus, fulfilling the
provision of the law, he drew from the State the first money provided for the education of the Indians
of Robeson county.
The Legislature of 1889 raised the appropriation to $1,000.00 and granted the same sum for many
years afterward.

All the Democratic commissioners were bound over to Raleigh to appear before Judge Bond in the
United States Court. Case vs. W. R. Cox was dismissed and it was proven in case vs.
commissioner James Oxendine a Republican and Croatan and former commissioner, that the
reason why the names of the voters on the poll book from Burnt Swamp township, a large Republican
township and one of the townships that the returns from were thrown out by the commissioners, that
they had sent up a larger number of votes than they had names on the poll book and that they were
advised by a leading Republican not to send it up for it would show that they were sending up more
votes than had been cast. So in place of the commissioners committing a fraud in this case they
actually prevented a fraud from being committted

learned the loss of our friend Mrs Hugh Oxendine. She was 85 years old. She had been confined to
her home for two years, though she was able to be up walking about in the house until about two
months ago.
The burial ceremony took place at the family burying ground. Our deceased friend was a member of
the Methodist church for 65 years. She was loved by all and leaves a host of friends to mourn her
departure. She leaves a husband and four daughters and three sons to mourn. Many thanks are
rendered to our friends who gave their liberal services during the sickness of our friend. Her death
was due to old age. The funeral was conducted from the residence today at two o'clock by Rev. H. H.
Lowrey of Elrod, text, St. Mathew 11:28, "Come unto me all ye that labor are heavy laden and I will
give you rest." The funeral was attended by a large assemblage.

"Elias Oxendine petitioned to set up a town called Oxendineville. About 1885 or so the General
Assembly had a third reading of the request which meant that it would be approved. Elias was going
to be Mayor, John W. constable and other family members etc. It was going to be where he owned
about 220 acres or so. He had a sawmill, store, gristmill, farm etc. Total of 550 acres in all. In 1884
he mortgaged his property and in 1885 they began to foreclose. He left in 1886 for Florida where he
bought 1,000 acres near Marianna, Fla. His leaving at that particular time is probably why there was
no Oxendineville in Robeson County." (Charles L. Oxendine, personal communication, 1998)

The 24th Infantry Regiment was originally called the 14th Volunteers. In 1861 a company was formed
called the Highland Boys who were known as the 24th Regiment of the North Carolina Volunteers.
They were from Red Springs, Robeson County. The regiment was organized at Weldon. The
Regiment fought in the Seven Days Battle, Malvern Hill, Sharpsburg (where Bert was wounded),
Fredericksburg, Bottom's Bridge, Suffolk, Plymouth, Drewry's Bluff, Bermuda Hundred, Petersburg
(the Regiment was one of those nearest the explosion), and Fort Stedman. Near the end of the war,
they were taken as prisoners to Point Lookout, MD and Johnson's Island, NY. They were parolled at
Appomattox Court House, VA in 1865. (References: Records obtained from the National Archives;

The Battle of Sharpsburg Recalled - A Custon That Has Fallen Into Disuse - "Snyder" and The
Robesonian
(only part of this article is presented here)
Fifty years ago today the battle of Sharpsburg was pulled off. The 24th N. C. troops, Ransom's
brigade, Walker's division, had crossed over into Maryland, and after maneuvering, were ordered
back across the Potomac. Next day we crossed the Sehandoah river and moved toward the vicinity

back across the Potomac. Next day we crossed the Sehandoah river and moved toward the vicinity
of Sharpsburg. Of course we didn't know where we were going, but incidentally got an inkling of the
situation by a remark made by Gen. Ransom, who was supervising the crossing of a small stream, by
the remark, "hurry up boyds, Gen. Lee is needing you."
Ah! that was a hot day at Sharpsburg 50 years ago. I wonder how many of the Co. G Highland boys
are alive today? Well, life is a curious enigma, after all. Those that fell that day were simply
anticipating the time of those who have been falling out of the ranks of the living ever since. The old
company of the Highland boys used some years ago to have a reunion occasionally to count noses
and see how thin ranks stood, but it has fallen into disuse of late and no notice is now taken of the
affair...
The Robesonian newspaper, Lumberton, NC, October 16, 1913
October Days
"Month of Memories" Causes Snyder to Recall Days of 1862
(Only part of this article is presented here"
...The October days in the valley of Virginia were well on when in 1862, he was detailed to accompany
a part of wounded men to the hospital at Winchester, Va...
The battle of Sharpsburg had been fought, and our army was lsisurely wending its way to the
southern side of the Potomac, then to prepare for the terrible thrashing that it had in store for the
Yankee army under McCleland at Fredericksburg in the following December. At Sharpsburg the
following members of the Highland Boys...were killed: Phil Musselwhite, shot through the head;
Speights, desperately wounded and died soon afterwards; John McNair, killed; Wilson, killed; A. E.
McNeill, wounded in foot; John M. McNeill, desperately wounded and died soon afterwards; John
Bethea, wounded in foot and Pat McGeachy, wounded in leg, both of whom soon recovered. The
detail in going up the valley passed through the loveliest and most fertile portion of Virginia, but at the
time it had been made desolate by the Yankee army - it destroyed almost everything in sight, except
the fine road that wended its way from Stanton to the Potomac, and looked at a distance, it seemed a
silver thread that gossamered its eyrieway around and over the blue hills of old "Ferginy". One could
only wonder how the people managed to live when Sherman passed through our own country, and
burned all he couldn't steal. We all had a hard time of it, but it was only once; yet here it occurred
many times in a year, and if the valley hadn't been fertile and productive its people would have
starved, but yet in their straightened circumstances, they were as cordial and as hospitable as if they
were surrounded with an abundance. The detail had plenty of rations, yet in no case did it fell equal
to the task of dividing with the people we met. If Virginia had been South Carolina, who started all our
woes, it wouldn't have had the sympathy that fell to the former State.
Well, to make[p a long story short after eleven days on a 92-mile route, it landed safely in Staunton,
all well and as hearty as could be expected. There it heard the railroad whistle that cheered the
lonely hearts of the crowd that hadn't been in touch with railroad facilities for months. Here we parted
to our different commands, to take up once more the strenuous duties of army life.

Marriage License:
1868 marriage record identifies Albert McLean's father as Turquil Locklear
Note: At the time Albert McLean was born, NC state law prohibited marriage between people of
different "races". Albert's mother was white and his father was Indian, so the two were legally
prohibited from marrying.
Legal Activities:
1870s, Albert Allen McLean witnessed land transactions of his father-in-law James Oxendine
1873, Albert Allen McLean was administrator of the estate of brother-in-law Floyd Oxendine
From November 1871 until January 1874, A. A. McLean, Justice of the Peace, presided at marriages
in Burnt Swamp and Smiths townships, Robeson County. This timeframe corresponds with the years
Albert Allen McLean was active as a witness to land sales and as administrator of Floyd Oxendine's
estate. While serving as witness, administrator, and J. P., Bert used his initials, A.A., instead of a full
name.

Notary Record 1868-1900)
When the 1880 census was taken, Albert McLean was no longer living with his wife and children. A
search of census records for that year results in one entry which meets some aspects of his personal
profile. The1880 census for Crowder Mountain, Gaston County, NC, lists Albert McLean, mulatto, age
26, boarder, single, occupation works in Gold Mine, can read and write, born in North Carolina,
parents born in North Carolina. Most of the information is a match but the age is off by 13 years, and
marital status would be a better match if it were married or divorced rather than single. Other than the
discrepancy in age and possibly marital status, the information is a match for Albert Allen McLean.

The relationship of James Griffin Oxendine with Henry Berry Lowry and the Lowry Band can be found
in several reports.
·
"This being Court week, the town of Lumberton was full of Scuffletowners, and I saw and
talked with Sinclair Lowery, elder brother of the outlaws, and also with "Dick" Oxendine, who
married the only sister of Henry Berry Lowery, and who keeps a barroom in the Court House
village." (Reference
)
·
In 1870, Dick Oxendine was arrested and charged with participating with the Lowry Band in
the kidnapping of Joseph P. Smith. Dick Oxendine, apparently, was acquitted. (Reference court
documents included in Genealogy A Perspective by Grady Locklear, February 1989)

days ago, a Croatian Indian named Stephen Oxendine of Robeson called on him. One of the
leaders of the H. B. Lowery gang. He fled the state to escape punishment. He told Fuller he was
mining in New Mexico and that his prospects for making a large fortune were good and that he
'expected to be able to travel in a palace car all my own'. He wanted to return to North Carolina
and when he died he wanted to be buried there." (Reprinted in The Robeson County Register:
IX(4)
Note: The meeting was likely with James Griffin Oxendine who mined in the
Albuquerque area in the early 1900s.
"Everybody in this section of the country remembers having heard of the famous Lowry gang
in Robeson county, which operated for years to the terror of the whole country. Most of us will
also remember reading recently that Henry Berry Lowry, the leader of the gang, was still alive, and
was in Mexico, and was anxious to return to this country, and had petitioned the Governor for a
pardon that he might return.
In this connection the Florence times says:
The readers of this paper will be interested in knowing that one of the Oxendines, a
brother-in-law of Lowry, passed through this city a few nights ago, going to New York from Mexico.
He went down there 28 years ago, and has become independently wealthy working in Mexican
mining properties. He talked freely to various gentlemen that he met, and to them he said with the
greatest earnestness that Lowry was really dead; that there was no truth in the recent story of his
being alive in Mexico. Oxendine declared most solemnly that he had assisted in the burial of his
brother-in-law, and that his body was buried in a hollow log in the swamp to avoid suspicion.
There was $60,000 offered as a reward for the return of his body, dead or alive. Fayetteville

Application to Guion Miller Roll of Eastern Cherokee
In 1906, James Griffin Oxendine applied (application #584) to Guion Miller Roll of Eastern Cherokee.
The application was rejected because neither he nor his ancestors ever enrolled in the Cherokee
Tribe and lived 250 miles from Cherokee country. The application did not establish descent from a
person who was party to the treaty of 1835-6 and 1846 The application, however, provided names of
his ancestors and children.

at Indian School at Albuquerque, NM as Captain under Supt. McCowan two years; then
transferred to Phoenix, Ariz and served as Major there three years under Supts. McCowan

Cherokee tribe." Arthur Oxendine noted that in 1893 Attie attended Albuquerque Indian
School as a pupil along with their brother George.
The military titles held by Attie may be explained by the fact that , at Phoenix Indian
School, military discipline was imposed and boys and girls were organized into armylike
units and drilled in elaborate marching routines.
Attie, alias Princess Paweeta, was a fortune teller and travelled with a circus. (Barbara

Indian Merchant of Pembroke Murdered
Asbury Oxendine Shot From Ambush Near Pembroke Monday Night-Archie and Norman Cummings,
Indians, Ordered Held Without Bond in Connection With Shooting-Malinda Chavis, Indian, Held as
Material Witness and is in Jail in Default of Bond
Asbury Oxendine, Indian merchant of Pembroke, was shot from ambush and killed about 11 o'clock
Monday night. The shooting took place on the A. C. L. railroad about one and a half miles north of
Pembroke. Oxendine was shot twice, one load of No. 4 shot taking effect in one side and a load of
buckshot in the other. Both shots were fired about the same time and it is supposed the shots were
fired by different parties. He only lived about 20 minutes after being shot.
Archie and Norman Cummings, Indians, were ordered held without bond in connection with the
shooting by the corner's jury, while Malinda Chavis, Indian woman, was ordered held as a material
witness, her bond being fixed at $1,000. She failed to make bond and the three are in jail here.
The inquest was held Tuesday morning by Dr. E. R. Hardin, county health officer and coroner. The
jury was composed of R. H. Crichton, Ira Bullard, John E. Floyd, W. F. Barnes, J. D. Garcia and C. F.
Lowry, the last-named being an Indian. The following verdict was rendered by the jury:
"We find that Asbury Oxendine was killed by gunshot wounds, the evidence being such that we order
Norman Cummings and Arch Cummings to be held without bond to be passed upon by the proper
court. We further order that Malinda Chavis be held as a material witness under bond in the sum of
$1,000."
Oxendine, who was about 60 years old, was walking along the railroad tract at the time of the
shooting, according to the evidence brought out at the corner's inquest. He was near the home of
Richard Cummings, Indian. Richard Cummings and another Indian, whose name was not learned,
reached Oxendine soon after he was shot and a few minutes before he died. If he made any
statement as to who shot him, it was not brought out Tuesday. Four shots were fired, according to
witnesses who were mearby, but only two took effect. Norman and Arch Cummings are sons of
Richard Cummings.
The remains of Oxendine were interred Tuesday in the family cemetery at Bear Swamp.
Evidence was brought out at the inquest to the effect that some tires on Arch Cummings' auto were
cut up Saturday night and that cummings had threatened to kill the one who cut them.

Cummings Brothers Go Free
State Fails to Prove Charge of Murder of Asbury Oxendine Against Arch and Norman Cummings After Day and Half of Evidence Motion for Non-Suit Sustained
Judge Geo. W. Connor sustained a motion for non-suit of the charge against Arch and Norman
Cummings, Indians, charged with killing Asbury Oxendine, another Indian, in Superior court Saturday
at noon. Motion for non suit was made by council for the defense after all the State's testimony was
in. The motion was argued by council for both the prosecution and defense before Judge Connor
ruled in favor of the defendants. Both defendants, who had been in jail here since immediately after
the killing on the night of October 31, last, were discharged by the presiding judge.
Motion for non-suit was made upon the ground that the evidence put on by the State was not
sufficient to justify a verdict of guilty by the jury. The jury was selected Thursday afternoon from a
special venire of 100 men and was composed of the following: Messrs. C. B. Redmond, D. A. Oliver,
Alex. Hayes, J. D. Lewis, J. M. Brown, P. W. Evans, Foster Kinlaw, M. D. Shaw, W. S. Stone, D. C.
Currie, J. A. McRae and Council Pittman.
The trial proper was not begun until Friday morning. There was much interest in the case, the court
room being crowded during the trial. The prevailing opinion of those who heard the evidence was that
it was not sufficient to convict the defendants of the charge of murder in the first degree.
Solicitor S. B. McLean was assisted in the prosecution by Messrs. McLean, Varser,McLean & Stacy,
while the defense was represented by Messrs. Johnson & Johnson and Messrs. Britt & Britt.
Witnesses put on by the State in their order were Dr. E. R. Hardin, county health officer and coroner;
Jim Oxendine, son of the man killed; F. F. Wetmore, civil engineer who made a map of the
surroundings about the point of the homicide; J. R. Maynor, James Lowry, Malinda Chavis, Willie
Chavis (15-year-old son of Malinda), Hursey Jacobs, Sheriff R. E. Lewis, S. H. Dunlap. O. D. McRae,

Mrs W. L. Moore Passes After Extended Illness
Maxton, R. F. D., Jan. 14 - Mrs Mary Cathrine Moore, wife of Rev. W. L. Moore, passed from her
earthly career to her heavenly home, Saturday, January 7th, at 12:40 p.m., after an extended
sickness of 2 years, 6 months and 2 days, she having been paralyzed July 3, 1925, from which she
never fully recovered.
She was born March 27, 1852, and was therefore in her 75th year. She was married to Rev. W. L.
Moore May 24th 1880, and to this union were born 3 daughters and 2 sons. Eliza Caroline, who
preceded her to the grave about 24 years ago, Mrs E. J. Bullard, L. W. Moore, C. H. Moore and Mrs
M. E. Dial, all of whom survive with their father, Rev. W. L. Moore, to mourn the loss of the dear
mother and companion.
She was converted more than 42 years ago, from which faith she never departed. It would be mild to
say only of her that she was admired by all of her acquaintances, for she was a good woman, always
administering to every worthy cause as she had the opportunity.
Mrs Moore was a very efficient teacher in her young days, teaching in various parts of the county.
Her work in this line always met the highest approval of the community in which she taught.
She was very patient during her affliction, often speaking of being ready and desiring to go to her
heavenly home.
The funeral services were conducted Sunday, January 8th, at 1 p.m. at Union Church Chapel church,
by Revs. H. H. Lowry and P. M. Locklear, using as a text "If We Believe That Jesus Died and Rose

Life of Rev. W. L. Moore, Prominent Indian and Leader of His Race
Written for The Robesonian
About 4 miles from Elkton, North Carolina, in Columbus county, there lived a man, Mr James Moore,
who married Miss Caroline Spaulding, to which union were born 11 children, 5 daughters and 6 sons.
The Moore family was one of the leading families of the community. They stood for Character,
Christianity, education and progress. Their attitude seemed to overshadow one of the sons, Rev.
William Luther Moore, who was born Oct. 12, 1857, and grew very rapidly until he measured 6 feet,
and 4 inches tall.
As a boy he studied in the rural schools of Columbus county each year for a few months until he
attained the age of 17, whereupon he began teaching. While in school, he was an excellent student,
and his disciplien was unexcelled.
While a boy, young Luther was fond of hunting raccoons, opossums, squirrels and wild turkey; he also
enjoyed fishing. Although his sportsmanship occupied a very important place in his life, there was a
never-yielding desire for a higher education notwithstanding some difficulty to obtain it.
He began teaching in Columbus county in 1874 and taught for 5 consecutive years. His youthful
teaching met with approval everywhere, and his success in later years had its origin in the early
career of his public life.
After having taught 5 successful years at home he visited Robeson county and was introduced into
some of the best homes, one of which was Mr James Oxendine's of Pates, who was a county
commissioner in after yers. The true friendship never ceased from this time until the latter's death.
It was while upon one of these visits that he met Miss Mary Catherine Oxendine, a daughter of Mr
Hugh Oxendine, and after consideration of their affections toward each other, they married in May
1879, and to this union were born 5 children, 3 daughters and 2 sons.
It is quite an interesting but rather a melancholy story as I enter upon the public life of a man who
everyone concedes has been without an equal for the uplift of humanity, the education of a
devastated people and the pioneer church worker of the Indian race in the state.
Mr William Luther entered his secondary school work in 1881 and took 4 full years tudy, finishing the
normal course, as it was then called. With this achievement, the difficult task had then begun, as it
was upon this man of valor the salvation of thousands of devout, strong but oppressed, brave but
caged in men and women had fallen.
Appropriation for Indian Normal

Appropriation for Indian Normal
In 1885, Rev. W. L. Moore sponsored a bill and urged and urged the senator from Robeson county to
have it enacted, which provided for the established of a State Normal school for higher education of
the Indians of Robeson county. This bill was passed but was for an appropriation of $500 for
maintenance only, which was a task for any man of that day to meet the conditions of the act of the
General Assembly, which required an adequate building within 2 years. However, Rev. W. L. Moore
worked when there seemed to be no help, with the exception of 4 men. The general sentiment of the
people was against his educational program.
He called a meeting and 4 men responded, from which the charter members of the board of trustees
were chosen. At the request of Rev. W. L. Moore, the campaign was launched to secure money to
erect the building. Rev. W. L. Moore gave of his funds $200 which was more than 10 fold the amount
of any other donor. He vacated the school room as a teacher for one year in order to devote all his
time to this school project. Often while canvassing, he was met with discouragement and opposition.
He was a firm believer in his conviction that the doors of opportunity for an era of education could be
accomplished and from this standpoint he never gave away to any hendrance.
First Teacher
When the building was finished in 1887, he began teaching in it without any assistant. He taught for 3
consecutive years and had some of the outstanding men and women of later years as his students.
Among these were Dr. G. W. Locklear, Rev. O. R. Sampson, and Mr A. N. Locklear. He served as a
member of the board of trustees for several years. He has very fittingly been called the father of this
institution.
Work for Public Schools
Rev. W. L. Moore not only helped to secure higher education for his people, but worked faithfully in
the movement to establish more and better public schools. He recommended the consolidation of
Prospect and one other near by school, which was done. He taught in many of the districts
throughout the county.
His 37 years of efficient teaching in Robeson county will be very pleasantly remembered for many
years to come. The years will come and go, but time cannot erase the education and higher morals
which have resulted from the strenuous efforts he put forth for near one half of a century.
Leading Minister
Dr. W. L. Moore was not only an education, but at an early age he had the Divine call to the ministry.
While quite a boy he was awarded a premium for reciting all of the four gospels from memory. He
joined the Methodist Protestant church and took the 4 years theological course, after which he was
ordained to elders' orders in Prospect church 46 years ago. He preached in this branch of the church
for quite a number of years, and ascended to the presidency. He presided over several annual
conferences for many years. He served throughout Marlboro and Chesterfield counties in South
Carolina, and Richmond, Scotland and Robeson in North Carolina.
In 1905, Dr. Moore had finished one of the most successful years of his ministry when, by careful
deliberation of the church, he with a total number of Methodist Protestant churches transferred
themselves into the Methodist Episcopal church.
His near half-century of active service in the ministry is outstanding from several standpoints. Within
the last 25 years, he has built and remodeled 6 churches and painted some others.
His public career as a minister and school teacher has given him a warm reception in the hearts of his
acquaintances and those who did not know him, for they knew of him. He has gone forth more than
100 miles over the country roads on a buggy because of no railroad accommodation to discharge his
duties as a minister. He has walked 8 miles to and from school as a teacher. He delivered several
thousand funeral eulogies and performed a few hundred marriage ceremonies.
It was conceded by all that knew him that his magnanimity was unexcelled. A visitor at the home the
night of his passing remarked that it was he, under whose preaching 27 years ago, quoting the text,
that he was converted. He measured his friends by those who knew him. He was wide awake to
people's needs, often giving both small and large gifts as he thought it best for the advancement of
humanity, irrespective of their financial status. Judging Dr. Moore from the things, or viewpoints that
constitute a man, namely what he has done, what he is and his ability to visualize things as a leader,
he should be placed in the first class.
The summary above only gives the reader a brief idea of the high points in his affable life. He has not
only worked in the realm of education and religious activities, but has been a pacifist in his
Page 82 of 201

only worked in the realm of education and religious activities, but has been a pacifist in his
community. His ability to visualize a new project, great or small, has been one of the conspicuous
things of his life. He was alert to the progress of his state and country. There never was a home too
humble or insignificant for him not to visit and more espeically in time of need.
His health began to fail approximately 14 years ago. There seemed a bright chance for recovery for
some years. He has gone forth physically unwell, often times confined to his bed, but arising to
discharge his ministerial duties, either to funeralize some one, to serve as a pastor, or visit and pray
for someone who more ill than he was.
As a father and husband, none were more devoted. He always had his family altar and gave the best
of examples and counsel to his children, all of whom are doiong well today with the exception of the
loss of a good father and mother.
The people of all races have been donderfully benefitted, directly, and indirectly,for his having lived in
this part of the state and Robeson county.
Notwithstanding his feeble health and declining years, he was chosen ministerial director of the
Pembroke parish in which capacity he devoted the last 5 yers of his work as a preacher. He preached
his final sermon in the First M. E. church Pembroke the 5th Sunday in August 1930.
Dr. Moore, while quite sick, told Rev. Aaron Lowrey that if he survived him to the tomb that he desired
he and Dr. W. A. Parsons of Statesville to funerallize him.
At the funeral, as has been mentioned in The Robesonian, Rev. Aaron Lowry paid high tribute to his
ministerial career as a co-worker for the upbuilding of God's kingdom. He said that each always
wanted the other in a revival meeting and church activities. He said that Rev. W. L. Moore could
always satisfy or answer any Biblical question for him.

Held For Killing 20 Years Ago
Lumberton, Nov 7-John Miller, under arrest in Fuquay Springs, will be returned here today by officers
to answer a 20-year-old charge of slaying Quilla Locklear, an Indian.
Sheriff P. S. Cornegay said his investigation showed that Miller shot Locklear when the Indian went to
Miller's home one night to tell him of the death of Locklear's granddaughter.
The sheriff said Miller fired into the darkness without knowing who he was shooting at.
He then sent a physician to Locklear and disappeared. The Indian died the next day. Miller was
discovered at Fuquay Springs Saturday.

20-Year-Old Murder Case Set For Trial
Lumberton, Dec. 16-Trial of a 20-year-old murder case will feature a week's term of Superior court to
convene December 18, with Judge N. A. Sinclair presiding. This is one of three major cases set for
trial.
John Miller, 53, white, father of nine children, was brought to Lumberton November 7 from Raleigh
and lodged in jail to answer the charge of killing Quilla Locklear, Indian, in Alfordsville township,July
24 1913. Miller was located at Fuquay Springs, Wake county, last month, living with his wife and
family, and farming. Sheriff P. S. Kornegay, of Robeson, was notified and started an investigation to
get together what evidence he could. He ordered Miller's arrest and with a capias issued at the
request of Solicitor T. A. McNeill, went to Raleigh, bringing Miller back.
Miller admits the killing but says he left because he was afraid of the Indians of that territory. He has
been living in North Carolina all the while, he states.
Miller and Locklear lived on adjoining farms and were on friendly terms. On the night Locklear was
killed, he went to Miller's house to inform him of the death of a grandchild. Dogs and Miller and
Locklear engaged in a fight in the yard, and Miller is said to have shot into the dark without knowing
who was there. Wounded in the stomach, Locklear died the following day. His dying statement about
the shooting is on file in the office of the clerk of court here.

John Miller, 53-yeard-old white man, father of 9 children, was brought to LumbertonTuesday night
from Raleigh to answer a murder charge lodge against him 20 yeas ago.
Miller is charged with shooting and fatally wounding Quilla Locklear, Indian, in Alfordsville township on
July 24, 1913. A true bill was returned by the Robeson county grand jury at the September term of
that year. The case was called every year until 1924, when a nol pros with leave was taken. Miller
was located at Fuquay Springs Saturday. Sheriff P. S. Kornegay worked on the case all day Sunday,
getting up sifficient evidence to warrant holding him. Arrested this week, Miller was taken to Raleigh
to jail. Sheriff Kornegay went for him Tuesday.
Fired Into the Dark
Miller and Locklear lived on adjoining farms and are said to have been good friends. Miller, it is said,
was the father of a child by Locklear's daughter. About one o'clock one night Locklear went to Miller's
home to inform him of the death of that child. Locklear's dog engaged in a fight with Miller's dog.
Locklear hailed, and without answering, Miller fired into the dark, without knowing whom he was
shooting at, Miller says. The bullet took effect in Locklearr's stomach. Locklear tried to walk home
but fell and was picked up and carried home by his wife and 2 brothers. He died next day but before
passing made a statement to Magistrate J. T. Bond, which, written in pencil, is on file in the office of
Clerk of the Court C. B. Skipper. It is alleged that Miller's wife told Miller at the time of the shooting
that it was Locklear outside and that he should not shoot.
Following the shooting, Miller hitched up a horse and drove to Rowland, sending Dr. W. E. Evans,
now dead, to Locklear. Miller said he was told that if he went back into the community he would be
killed and that he was advised to leave. It was reported that he went to Georgia, but Miller told
officers he had never left North Carolina. He lived above Gibson for several years, then bought a
farm above Biscoe and lived there for some years, later going to the Fuquay Springs and Apex
sections. He said he brought tobacco to the Fairmont market last year and was unmolested.
Sheriff Kornegay had a letter Saturday from an officer at Fuquay Springs stating that Miller was living
in that community and that it was reported that he had killed a man near Rowland about 20 years ago.
Beginning an investigation, the sheriff found that on the bill of indictment only 2 witnesses were listed,
Webster Locklear, brother of the dead man, and Emma Miller, wife of the defendant. In Saddletree
township the sheriff found Pete Locklear's wife, daughter of Quilla, who told him that he could locate
Webster in the Raemon section of Alfordsville. Going into the Aflordsville section, the sheriff found
also the wife of the dead man.
The grand jury on Wednesday returned a true bill charging Miller again with murder

William Edwin McLean was born in 1903 in Robeson County, NC.
Notes for William Edwin McLean:
General Notes:
Eddie McLean left his parents' home when he was about 18 years old (1921) , and his last
contact with the family was about 1931. At that time, he said he lived in CA. A search of
California records, has not produced any associated with him.
Notes from conversation with Frank McLean
Eddie served in the US Navy for 20-30 years
He and his first wife lived in San Diego...there were married 10-15 years and had children
He and his second wife lived in Florida...he died in Florida
A search on Ancestry.com for the name William Edwin McLean shows one person with
that name, a person who died July 1965 in Dade Co, FL. A search on familysearch.org,
however, has info. that William McLean who died in July 1965 in FL was born 12 March
1899, and was issued a SS card in PA. It seems unlikely that the man born in 1899 is the
same person as William Edwin born in 1903.
A search of verterans' cemeteries was negative.
A cursory search of WWII enrollment was negative.
A search of WWII casualities from CA was negative.

Strong Argument For The Amendment
After the regular examination of the Croatan teachers had been finished Friday afternoon President
M. Sheperd went to the black board and wrote upon it the question: "What should be the attitude of
the teachers towards the proposed amendment to the constitution? The teachers were asked to
answer as suited them.
One teacher went to the board and wrote under the question"We all favor the amendment and will
vote for it" and not one reply opposed it.
Several teachers wrote opinions of it, but one was particularly strong and is given below:
I am in favor of the amendment for many reasons.
First, it will stimulate education to a higher degree in North Carolina.
It will give us an intelligent ballot, and establish White Supremacy in North Carolina.
It will solve the race problem in the State and the people can be thinking of something else.
I think all teachers should support the amendment.
O. R. Sampson
If stronger arguments have been advanced for the adoption of the amendment than "the stimulation of
education to a higher degree", "the giving of an intelligent ballot", "the establishment of white
supremacy" and "the solving of the race problem", they not come under observation.
O. R. Sampson is one of the most intelligent and influential of the younger Croatans in the county and
at a recent gathering of his people made a ten minutes talk, said by those who heard it, to be as
unanswerable and convincing as a speech of so few words could be. He is as strong in his writing as
in his speaking and in a few words has placed the question in a light that could not be improved by
months of study.
UNCP honors one of first students
By Scott Bigelow - UNCP Notebook
The University of North Carolina at Pembroke dedicated its first new classroom building in 27 years to
O.R. Sampson, one of its original students and a 32-year member of the board of trustees. The
ribbon was cut Monday for the O.R. Sampson Academic Building with the help of a large contingent of
family members. Sampson's daughter, Martha Locklear, spoke for the family. "I'm proud to be here
today,”"Locklear said. "My father realized the greatest gift is a quality education. It gladdens my
heart today to participate in the re-affirmation of my father's legacy."
Chancellor Allen C. Meadors saluted O.R. Sampson's legacy at the 120-year-old university. "His spirit
still lives with us,”"Meadors said. "If it had not been for Mr. Sampson and men like him, we might not
be here today." As a member of the first class and as chairman of the board of trustees for 30 years,
Sampson participated in the early milestones of a young university. "He was here at the birth of the
university in 1887, and he was here to watch it grow over three decades,”"Meadors said. "I feel
extremely good about this naming."
The new classroom building will house the departments of Psychology and Counseling, and Criminal
Justice and Sociology. It was built at a cost of $4.8 million and is located north of the Adolph L. Dial
Humanities Building. Sampson's portrait and a bronze plaque hang in the lobby of the main entrance.
An inscription from the university's semi-centennial celebration reads: Of all the friends and helpers of

An inscription from the university's semi-centennial celebration reads: Of all the friends and helpers of
this school, Mr. Sampson touched it at more points, knew it more intimately, and served it longer than
any other man has done.
Sampson, born in 1866, attended the first session of the Croatan Normal School and was one of its
first graduates. He preached and taught in the public schools for 40 years and served on the board of
trustees from 1898 until his death in1928. Among other accomplishments, Sampson helped move the
school to its present location and witnessed the construction of Old Main in 1923. Sampson was
honored in 1949 with the dedication of the administration and library building, which was demolished
in 1997. His name migrated to the Sampson-Livermore Library and then to the new location upon a
unanimous vote of the board of trustees.

Rowland Indian School Closing Enjoyed by Large Crowd
Saturday morning April 25, at 11:30 o'clock a good many people filled the school room to listen to the
speaker of the occasion. Mr. P. L. Strickland a well known farmer, who lives near Rowland, made a
talk on the subject "Progressiveness". The speech was enjoyed by a large and attentive audience.
The next speaker was Mr Lacy R. Oxendine of Pembroke. He took as his subject "Benefits of Good
Attendance" which made many feel up-spirited. There a song was rendered by the school. The
crowd was dismissed and out in the yard a beautiful dinner was spread out, dinner enough for all and
some to spare. The crowd re-assembled in the school room at 2:30 p. m. to hear Miss Dorcas
Maynor of Pembroke made a recitation on the subject, "Hour of Prayer". Master Ottie Sweat was
entitled to a prize for the best department during school. Mr McKinley Strickland was entitled to the
second prize for improvement of hand writing, which was presented by the teacher.
As a whole the people of the district said it was the most highly enjoyed commencement in the history
of the school.
Mrs Jessie Deese was their teacher. Mrs J. L. Oxendine also of Pembroke was one of the honorable
guests. The session just closed was one of the best in the school's history.
"Lacy Oxendine (Folder #4342) arrived at Carlisle (Indian) School in October of 1914. He was 17
years old and came from Pembroke NC. He is listed as 1/2 E. Cherolee. He left Carlisle in May of
1915 at the special request of the Indian department. He had had 9 years of schooling previous to
Carlisle. He was also in correspondence with another young Native American woman and I seem to
remember that some of the letters are in her file; her name was Hattie Snow (Folder #4779) who was
Seneca from Upstate NY" (reference email from Genevieve Bell, extracted from National Archives

53-year-old Pembroke Indian, 2 eyewitnesses testified they saw Roberts stagger, without looking up,
into the highway at Pembroke Sunday night, being barely missed by the auto of Jim Brewer, who
swung his car to the left of the road to prevent striking him, and then continue across the highway into
the path of an auto driven by R. M. Morgan of Maxton, being struck by the Morgan auto and fatally
injured. Leonard Godwin, Indian, one of these eyewitnesses, said Mr Morgan was within 6 feet of
Roberts when he discovered and applied his brakes, stopping the car within twice its length. Roberts
was tripped and thrown to the pavement. Mr Morgan pulled to one side of the road, stopped, placed
the injured man in his machine and brought him to the hospital. Godwin placed speed of the car at
from 25 to 30 miles per hour. Redmond Hunt, Indian, other eyewitness, placed of the car at the time
of the impact at 40 miles per hour. Lonzo Lowry, Indian, who heard the brakes as they were applied
and the impact, said that a truck also passed about the same time. Chief-of-Police Carl Maynor of
Pembroke testified the town had a speed lim of 20 miles per hour, which ordinance he enforced only 8
days, stopping the enforcement because of severe criticism hurled at him. The officer said he
followed Mr Morgan's car which brought the injured man to the hospital in Lumberton. Roberts died
early Monday. The jury held that Roberts was fatally injured in an unavoidable accident and that Mr
Morgan was not blamable. Serving on this jury were: E. W. Cain, R. O. Edmund, John McLean, N. E.
Drum, A. B. Fisher, Andrew Bullard. Attorney F. E. Carlyle appeard for the Roberts family and
Attorney W. S. Britt for Mr Morgan.
