The connection between the Robert Hardy family and the Ransom Meadows family and the importance of Nancy Peebles Browning in the Ransom Meadows Descendancy.

Nancy Peebles Browning was the mother of Mary Ann Elizabeth Hardy who married Milous Meadows. Nancy Peebles Browning was the mother of John B. Hardy -1825 SC -who married Elizabeth Jane Meadows-.b April 1827 AL, and she was the mother of Robert W. Hardy and William Allan Lansing Hardy who both married Mary Ann Elizabeth Meadows, daughter of Stephen Meadows who was the son of Ransom Meadows. They were children by her first marriage to Robert Hardy b 1782 in Lunenburg VA who lived in Edgefield SC before leaving for Alabama. Ransom Meadows Dick (a grandson of Ransom Meadows) served in the Confederate Calvary (military records), then married Nancy Browning Bankston at Coosa Co in 1865. Nancy was also the daughter of Nancy Peebles Browning by her second marriage to James Madison Bankston .

Two of Nancy Peebles Browning Hardy Bankston´s children married 2 of Ransom´s children and 3 of her children married 2 of Ransom Meadows`grandchildren.Moses Meadows (son of Ransom Meadows) signed the marriage bond for his niece, my ancestor. I have a copy. Her name was Mary Ann Elizabeth Meadows and she was the daughter of Stephen "Steve" who died of yellow fever. She grew up with Ransom Meadowsm, her grandfather. Ransom went to Mt. Miegs, east of Montgomery, Alabama about 1816/17. Then, he went to Autauga, thirdly to Lowndesboro about 1819, then finally in 1840s to Alexander City, Tallapoosa after 3 of his boys died of fever- Stephen, Tom, and Jerry.

From an undated newspaper clipping:
"Ransom was a man who believed in "making arrangements," undoubtedly a long range planner. When the time came to settle in his final resting place, there was already constructed and waiting a sturdy, stone mausoleum. Time and the elements and some vandalism have taken their toll on the pre-1800 structure, but it is still in good shape in a wooded area about one-quarter mile off Elkahatchee Road, three miles from Alexander City, Alabama, near the old Crow place. In this self-styled mausoleum are the bodies of Ransom and his wife Sarah. Ransom's son William and daughter-in-law are also said to be buried there. Sometime between 1830 and 1840, Ransom and all of his living sons except William left Lowndesboro and went to Tallapoosa Co. in the face of malaria and yellow fever epidemics. It is said William out lived all of those who left him behind in Lowndes County.
Isham, Jr. also remained in Lowndes Co. and died there. Ransom was the son of Isham, born in 1765 in Virginia, and the grandson of another Isham Meadows, who was named for the Bermuda Hundred settlement in Virginia, founded in 1649."

“Susan, I thank you for the wonderful article about Ransom Meadows. I have been to Fishpond cemetery where Didema grave is. As you know she was Creek Indian and the Fishpond cemetery and Baptist Church is the seat of the Creek nation. All of the Hogan's are there. The name Susan appears several time in the women of the Meadows family. I hope you get the attachment to my e mail. I have been to this cretch several times it is a few miles on Meadows property,it has been sold but today's owners will let you visit....I am fith generation Meadows on my mothers side. My grandfather was Oel and I bear that extremely interesting name.... The Creeks still function as a tribe, and there history and current administration still continue through family members who live near or attend to Fishpond Baptist Church. The people who lived in the communities near Fishpond were made up of native American folks and families married and resided side by side, mostly farmers. This is the story that I know about Didema [Moses Meadows wife]. I have photos and have seen photos of her and if you were able to see them you would understand the Creek part be cause she looks full Native American. She wore bright checks and even wore Indian bead work. Didema was born 12-5-1833, and died 11-10,1912. Her father was Alonza Hogan. (Hogans are buried in the Native American portion, of the cemetery. A small rock fence separates these families. Anglo American and Native American.) No record is available about her mother's name. My grand mother alluded to it as perhaps Thunderburk. When she was only twelve, both of her parents died of typhoid fever within the same week. She had no sisters and just one brother. Didema was jolly, pleasant,and easy going. She was quite thrifty, and did not want to waste anything' She like to talk and visit with everyone. She and Moses always went to Primitive Baptist Church. (Note Primitive Baptist) This probably was literal. She always had her church paper, which was the first church paper published.Moses and Didema Hogan Meadows are buried in Fishpond Cemetery. Moses and Didema children are Daniel (Dan) Ransom Meadows 5-25-1849;d1934 he married Mary B._____(b1849;d.1929 He was a successful farmer and trader of stock and cattle......oel castner”


Ransom is buried three miles from Alexander City (Talapoosa County) 1/4 mile from Elleahatchee (?spelling) near the old Crow place. (Steve Meadows)

From Evelyn Justice, August 1967:
"My grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth Meadows Justice, told the story that she visited at Ransom Meadows's home many times when she was a child. She said he owned about 4,000 acres of land and 200 slaves. It took fifteen years to build the house for the sepulchre, and was built on a large smooth rock. The cement was made of wood ashes, salt and water. Ransom begged his wife, Sarah, for several years to be buried there with him and she refused for a long time. Finally, shortly before he died, she promised him she would be buried there and this made him very happy. A daughter, Frances, was also buried there. For several years the family could go into the sepulchre and view the bodies. But a few years later someone broke in and broke the glass and stole the jewelry from the bodies then the tomb had to be sealed."

Ransom was not her father, but probably grandfather.
This could be Sarah´s family-

iv. Mary Meadows, born circa 1809-15, married 23 August 1836-marriage license at Lowndes Cty Courthouse, to Robert L. Dick born in GA, went to AL in the 1830's (land records). Their first two children, Martha and Sarah F. were born in AL. They moved to Union Parish, LA sometime prior to the birth of Ransom Meadows Dick who was born Sept. 24, 1840 in Union Parish. Robert acquired land in Union Parish, farmed and was somewhat influential in the affairs of Union Parish - served on a Police Jury several time, responsible for directing the placement of several roads and bridges in the Parish. Robert was a substantial slave owner according to slave schedules in the county. Family stories (principally from Robert L. Dick's grandson, Robert Ransom Dick who lived and died in AL) is that Robert L. left his family sometime prior to 1860, giving his wife thousands of dollars in gold and 30 slaves to sustain herself and the children. He was in Zandt County, Tx, 1860, showing R.L. Dick, age 51, born GA, listed with William Lauderdale family. Martha and Sarah stayed in Union Parish, but Mary took her young son, Ransom Meadows Dick back to AL to live near her Meadows family. She may have remarried to a Sanders. A woman named Mary Sanders is living with Ransom and has $5000.

Nancy Browning Hardy Bankston was also the mother of Mary Ann Elizabeth Hardy who married Milous Meadows and she was the mother of Robert W.
