A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY.
Related by Mrs. Hattie Collins
Heath of Boom.
We noticed in one of the last
issues of the Dallas News a short
piece answering the inquiry concern-
ing the fate of Theodocia Alston,
daughter of the noted Aaron Burr.
The article, in speaking of her
fate, as well as that of the crew on
board the "Patriot," said nothing
about her two children, or her sepa-
ration from her husband, Gov. Al-
ston. Our father, George Collins,
was one of the best historians, either
ancient or modern, it was ever our
good fortune to know and his know-
ledge of and authority for history
and historical facts were often
sought by his friends and acquaint-
ances, and more than once, in our
girl-hood days, back in the old home
amid the pines of Louisiana, have
we heard him entertain his friends
by giving them something of the
history of the life and tragical end-
ing of Theodocia Alston.
She and Governor Alston dis-
agreed concerning the former's
father and she sailed from Charles-
ton, South Carolina, mid-winter,
1812, to meet her father in New
York, carrying her two children
with her. In a few days advance-
ment of the "Patriot" the crew was
captured and made to walk the
plank. Mrs. Alston drew back,
clinging closely to her ehildren,
whereupon one of the pirates seized
the children, compelling them to
walk the death-plank in the presence
of their mother. She then stepped
back, took her Bible in hand and
walked the plank without a tremor.
The article as given in the News
stated that this pirate, in his dying
confession several years afterward,
said her face ever haunted him.
Were our father still living we
could refresh our memory with the
more important facts of the history
of this gifted woman, but he passed
several years ago to "that bourne
from which no traveler returns."
While speaking of little bits of
history, would it be a diversion to
mention here that our father's
mother, Mahala Seaham, was the
first white child born on the noted
French-Broad river of Tennessee,
while her father, Grandfather Sea-
ham, was one of the first members
chosen for the sitting of the first
legislature of that state? His name
figures, or is given, we think, in the
older history of Tennessee.

RESOLUTIONS OP RESPECT.
In Loving Memery of Our Deceased;
Sovereign, J. H. Biggs, Whose
Untimely Death we Mourn.
Sovereign Biggs departed this life
April 4, 1905. Truly a good man,
a sovereign and a devout Christian
has fallen; a tree in the forest has
been cut down by the hand of Him
who knoweth best and doeth all
things well, and while we mourn our
loss, we humbly bow in submission
to the will of our Heavenly Father.
Our departed brother was a true
friend, a loving husband and father
•and a loyal Woodman, and in his
death we sustain a great loss; but
as we stand with tear-dimmed eyes
and look Upon his grave, we say :
Sleep on, loved sovereign, peaceful be thy
Till the loving Master comes to call thee to
And when we all one day before His throne
Oh, may it be our joyful lot to be with thee
on His right hand.
Noble sovereigns, we who are left,
let us be true to our promise and do
that for our beloved dead that would
bring greatest joy to his heart by
guarding well the interest of his
loved ones and see that no foe shall
molest them or take from them that
which he has provided.
Resolved, That a copy of this be-
spread on our record and a copy be-
furnished the bereaved family and
that a copy be sent the Sovereign
Visitor, and that it be given the
Brand for publipation.
Signed by the committee,
D. H. Bryant,.
