Henry Blount Slade

( - circa April 1821)
     Henry Blount Slade was born in North Carolina. He was the son of Ebenezer Slade Jr. and Chloe Blount.1
     Henry married Elizabeth Bennett circa 1802.1 Henry and Elizabeth migrated to the southwest area of the future state of Alabama - Mississippi Territory about 1804. The area was called the Tombeckbee settlement and was in old Washington County.

     They first settled on the East side of the Tombigbee River in what is n ow Clarke County near Oven Bluff. Then after 1805 Henry Blount moved to the Slade Plantation near Old Wakefield which was located on the West side of the Tombigbee River near present day Sunflower. Later, after his death, Elizabeth placed an advertisement in the Mobile Commercial Register dated February 27, 1824 listing for sale one thousand acres of land that Henry Blount Slade owned east of the Tombigbee River where Samuel Ervine lived. The Plantation included a Cotton Gin and Press, and houses for slaves. This possibly could have been the area he originally settled. The land was sold for cash and distributed to his surviving children. The 1804 tax roll showed Henry Blount Slade was owner of eleven slaves, and the 1807 tax roll showed Henry Blount Slade as owner of four hundred acres in Washington County and owning fourteen slaves.

     
Henry Blount Slade was said to have been one of the nine men who, in 1807, escorted Aaron Burr from Fort Stoddert to Richmond Virginia for trial.

     
There are numerous references between Judge Harry Toulmin and Henry B. Slade listed in Territorial Papers of the United States Mississippi Territory concerning Petitions to the President and Congress to create a separate Territory during the period of 1809-1817. He was the representative from Baldwin County at the first Alabama Territorial Assembly held at old S t. Stephens on January 19, 1818. He also held the office of Justice of t he Quorum in 1814 and Chief Justice of the Chancery Court in 1818 for Bald win County, Alabama. The county seat at that time was McIntosh Bluff.

     
In 1811 Henry Blount Slade was one of the original Trustees of the Washing ton Academy located in Washington County, Mississippi Territory.

     
There is a letter dated February 24, 1821 from Henry Blount Slade to John Haywood regarding his son James Bennett Slade. It was delivered by Howard Monger (Monger's Creek is probably named after him) to Mr. Haywood at the boarding school in Raleigh, North Carolina where James Bennett w as attending school. Henry Blount was sending money to settle James Bennett's expenses and asking for his return home, so his future could be discussed. We assume Henry Blount was in poor health at this time.1

      Henry died circa April, 1821.1 He was probably buried in Old Wakefield, Washington County, Alabama.1 His death was eventually announced in the newspaper July 20, 1821. There is a bill for a coffin dated April 24, 1821, which was made in St. Stephens and billed to Henry Blount's Estate. Elizabeth was later remarried to a Mr. Thomas Few in 1824. Since Henry Blount did not have a will his estate was not settled until March 8, 1826. Most of the land he owned around the Sunflower area was divided among his children.

Edwin E. Slade

(1807 - 1 September 1853)
     Edwin E. Slade was born in 1807 in Warren County, North Carolina.1 He was the son of Ebenezer Slade and Frances E. Johnson. He was bondsman for the marriage of Thomas P. Slade to Eliza Gordon on October 28, 1830 in Warren County, North Carolina. Thomas was possibly his father's brother.

     The 1840 census of Lowndes County, Mississippi lists an Edwin E. Slade about the same age as our Edwin. He is married with young daughter. The census indicates 1 male age 30-40, 1 female under 5 years, 1 female 20-30. Lowndes Co, MS is on the Alabama line North of Washington County, Alabama. Is it possible that this is the same Edwin E. Slade? But, if so, what happened to the wife and child? Edwin Slade does not show up anywhere in 1860 census. The two records above are the only census references we can find to an Edwin Slade of this age. Edwin's occupation was listed as physician on the 1850 census and no personal property was indicated. 1850 does not give marital status, but no wife shown. Edwin E. Slade died on September 1, 1853 in Washington County, Alabama, A transcribed article from Raleigh newspaper gives death notice of a Dr. Slade in Washington County, Alabama. It is possible they were referring to Dr. Edwin E. Slade, formerly of Warren County, North Carolina.

James Bennett Slade

(1805 - 16 September 1878)
     James Bennett Slade was born in 1805 in Washington County, Alabama.1 He was the son of Henry Blount Slade and Elizabeth Bennett.2
     James married first Isabella Harrell Bosworth on August 20, 1838 in Alabama.2

     James ran a stagecoach stop, stables, and inn at New Wakefield. The stagecoach ran from Mobile to Selma, Alabama. He was also the last postmaster for New Wakefield from 1842 to 1866 when the post office was discontinued. The post office was originally established February 8, 1834. James also ran a business that was listed in the 1859 Mobile City Directory as auctioneers and general commercial merchants and was called Slade & Parker. The business operated at 41 and 43 North Walter Street in Mobile. During this time, his permanent address was listed as New Wakefield, Alabama.

     When the county seat of Washington County was moved for the seventh time in 1848 to 'New' St. Stephens, the courthouse was 'to be located at a placed known as the Hazard Old Field'. James Bennett Slade, along with others were appointed as Commissioners. The county seat remained in this area until 1907, when it was moved to its present day location in Chatom. James Bennett Slade was also a Representative of Washington County from 1857 to 1863.2

     James Bennett Slade married second Amanda Urania Sanderson, daughter of Lemuel G. Sanderson and Jane Almahia Follin, on June 25, 1866 He was 62 and she was 37.2 James died on September 16, 1878.2 He was buried in Hooks Cemetery, Washington County, Alabama.2

     James did not leave a will, therefore his estate was not settled until around 1890 or 1893. His brother Ebenezer's descendants brought the case to circuit court for the portion of the land in Sunflower. They received approximately a thousand acres of land in the Sunflower area, representing a third of the estate. From that time on, the family has not owned any land in the Sunflower area. The land in Sunflower was eventually sold to L. H. Williams.2
