PETERS, ABSALOM BARTON, was born near Shanute, Tenn., in what is now Pickett County, on the 31st day of July 1871.  He was the second child of Tobias and Mary Jane Peters.  His grandparents were among the first settlers of Morgan County.  His maternal grandparents were Rev. A. B. and Cyntha S. Wright.  Rev. Wright gave his life in service in the Christian education and uplift of the mountain children of Picket, Fentress, Cumberland, and Morgan Counties.  Prof. Peters was his namesake and when one knows the similarity of their ideals and sacrifices, they will see that the Spirit of the one rested upon the other.  Tobias and his wife moved to Morgan County and settled at Burrville, Tenn., when Prof. Peters was about one year old, and it was here that he was reared to manhood and spent most of his mature life, he was educated in the public schools of his community later attending Maryville College.  While the advantages of getting an education in his day were not so good as they are now, he was determined to have an education.  He would teach for a few months in the early fall and after his school was out he would go to school wherever he could.  He was never a graduate of an accredited high school or college, yet he was as educated man in the true sense of the term.  He was a great student.  Always studious.  Always learning.  He was one of the best read men of his time.  He could discuss, with you most any subject, intelligently and showed that he was a man with a great mind.  In 1898 when President McKinley called for volunteers to defend their country against Spain, he was one of the first in enlist.  Capt. John W. Staples came to Burrville in May, 1898 and Prof. Peters with several other boys readily gave their names to help Staples make up his company.  It was some time later, fearing that Staples would not he able to make up the required number for his company, he with five or six other boys learning that there was a recruiting officer for the First Tenn. Regiment at Nashville, went to Nashville and enlisted in the 1st Tennessee Regiment.  They were immediately sent to San Francisco, Cal., where the regiment was held in training.  His regiment was sent to the Philippine islands late in the year of 1898 where it remained until the summer of 1899.  He enlisted as a Private but was promoted corporal.  After about 21 months in the army he was honorably discharged at San Francisco, Nov. 23, 1899.  He was a good soldier.  One of his comrades said that he never heard him speak an unkind word and that his character was above question.  He came back to his parents as pure as he was when God gave him to them.  After he returned home in Dec. 1899, he attended school until spring at the A. B. Wright Institute, he taught in this school in the years 1900-1903.  On July 31, 1903 he was married to Miss Jessie Smith of LaFollette, Tenn.  There was born to this Union three children, two boys and one girl.  One boy dying in infancy leaving only one boy 14 and a girl 9.  Thinking that he could do better in his profession he moved to Louisiana in the fall of’ 1903.   His school record in I Louisiana was a wonderful success.  He was Parish Superintendent of Schools of St. Tammany Parish in 1910-1911 and resigned this position to become vice president of Whitworth College, Brookhaven, Mississippi.  He resigned this position in the later part of 1912 to become president of Mansfield College, Mansfield, Louisiana.  He held this position until his health necessitated his going to a higher climate, because of malaria in his system.  He left Mansfield and came back to Burrville, Tennessee and accepted the position as principle of the Petros City Schools.  He taught for two years in Petros where his work tells for itself. He left Petros to teach at Deer Lodge so that lie might be near his family who were living at Burrville. He ran for County Superintendent of schools in 1917 but was defeated by Prof. Ernest Williams of’ Wartburg. When the United States was drawn into the World War, and the young men were called to service. Prof. Williams enlisted leaving the office vacant. The County Court unanimously elected Prof. Peters to fill out the unexpired term. He was again elected in 1919, in 1921, and in 1923 he was elected for four years. At the time of his first election the country schools were running for only four months. This was due to his untiring efforts in the interest of the boys and girls of his home country. It can truly be said that he gave of his best in the carrying out of his program. giving the boys and girls in the out of way places a chance for an education. He was a Christian man. He early gave his heart and life to Jesus Christ. He believed that no man could be a true success without being a Christian. He thoroughly believed in Christian Education. He was a devoted and devoted and [not legible] at the time of his death he was District President of the Layman’s Association of the Holston Conference of the Methodist Church.  He recognized Stewardship as a fundamental principle in giving and gave a tenth of his income to the lord and his work.  No man it seemed had more friends that he.  To know him and see his interest in his work was to love him.  He had evidently been sick fur a long time before he broke down.  On May 11, 1923, while at work in Wartburg, he suffered a break down in the form of acute rheumatism in the right leg.  He seemed to get better of this, but his liver gave him trouble.  On May 30th, we called in Dr. St. John of Harriman for a consultation with Dr. Jones.  They advised us that he had Bright’s disease.  In the hope that it might do him good and that he might recover his health in a small degree at least, we took him to Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee.  I however, the chances were against us and we lost out fight.  On Sunday, July 15 the end came.  The Spirit, which had been embodied in such a beautiful life, took its flight and is now basking in the sunlight and presence of The Father’s Love.  He was conscious up to within two minutes of the end.  He realized that he could not live and suggested to his wife the details of his funeral.  He selected the preacher, the text, the songs and the pallbearers.  The funeral services were held at Burrville July 18, in the presence of the largest crowd that ever attended a funeral service in Morgan County.  Rev. I. H. Bee of’ Rose, Tenn., had charge of the services, after a very beautiful and impressive talk by Rev.  Bee, the services were turned over to the Knights of Pythias which rendered in a very beautiful way, rites to one of their members.  He was buried in the beautiful cemetery behind the Methodist Church at Burrville.  He leaves a widow, one son, one daughter, two sisters, five brothers and a host of friends.  Our loss is his gain Barton, we will miss you; but your consecrated and inspiring Christian life will ever be a benediction to us and will inspire us to give of our best in service to humanity.  Soon we are going to meet you and we shall say Good Morning in our Father’s House.  [Morgan County Press, 8/3/1923, Vol. 5, No. 4]

Peters, Absalom Barton (Prof. A. B.) — IN MEMORIUM — Where as, on the 16th day of July 1923, God in his infinite wisdom thought best to call from our midst our beloved leader, County Superintendent of Education, Absalom Barton Peters.  As a result of his untimely death the schools of Morgan County have suffered an irreparable loss.  There has never been a more zealous worker in behalf of the educational interest of this county as well as the state at large.  Born in 1871, he was educated in the public schools of Morgan County and at Maryville College.  At the early age of eighteen he began his career as an instructor and since that time has devoted his time, study and private means to the educational advancement of his county.  Therefore, Be It Resolved: 1. That we, the members of the Morgan County teachers Association, to perpetuate his good work, more earnestly and zealously dedicate ourselves to the service of humanity in an effort to raise the moral, religious and literary standard of education in our county, thereby paying to our fallen leader a tribute, which we believe, were he alive, would afford him great pleasure.  2. That we pay our sincere tribute of respect to the memory of him who was not only our educational leader, but a leader in every movement for the betterment of our country morally and religiously and was a true friend to each of us personally.  3. That we extend to his bereaved family our sincere sympathy in the great loss they have sustained, but remind them that while their temporal loss is great, yet a happy reunion is certain in that great beyond.  4. That a copy of these resolutions be furnished the bereaved family, a copy to the Morgan County Press and that a copy be spread on the minutes of the Association. [Signed] Committee – George W. Dagley, Mrs. J. B. York, Mrs. D. E. Cooper. Approved and adopted this 14th day of August 1923, Mrs. Jennie Walraven, Pres., Mrs. Alive M. England, Sec.

Chas. B. Kalb of Columbus, Ohio, now of Rugby Road, using a part of the 14th Chapter of St. John, beginning with the first.  “Let not your hearts he troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me.” dwelling on the third verse; “I go to prepare a place for you, so will I come again and receive you unto myself:”  [Morgan County Press, 11/4/1926, Vol. 9, No. 13] [Burial in Mt.

MAUPIN, DOROTHY MARIE, age 92, died on June 23 (2010) at Brakebill Nursing Home inKnoxville. Dorothy was born and raised in the Pine Orchard community, near Oakdale in Morgan County. She was the second of eight children born to Obed and Annie (Kindred) Maupin. She is survived by her sisters Faye Arr of Maryville and Bernice Baker of Monteagle, and she was preceded in death by sisters Hazel Carr, Reba Jones, Lucille Burris, and Marjorie Edington and by her brother, Harvey Maupin. “Dot,” as she was known to most, was cherished by all of her siblings and by her many nieces and nephews. She was known in her younger years for her dark hair with a prominent white streak in front and for her fashionable dresses and dangerously high heels. She very much enjoyed living her life the way she wanted to and set a fine example of independence as a single woman living alone in the Shelbourne Towers Apartments, near the UT campus, in Knoxville for many years. She never married but certainly did not lack opportunities to do so. Among her favorite haunts was the Toddle Houseon Cumberland Avenue, and she always treated lucky children who were allowed to stay overnight with her to breakfast there. She was also known for saying exactly what she thought and for routinely refusing to do what other people thought she should do. One endearing habit was to use her index finger to poke people in the ribs while she was making an important point during conversation. In summary, to call Aunt Dot’s death the end of an era does not do her justice. She dispensed birthday cards, unsolicited gifts, and love with the appropriate abandon of one who understands how much she is also loved. Dot was also preceded in death by her nephews Steve Maupin, Bryan Carr, and David Burris. She is survived by her nieces Olivia Clark, Anne Carr, Susan Cox, Pam Allred, Sheila Burris, Becky Baker, and Cindy Baker as well as her nephews Barry Maupin, John Carr, Frank Bristow, Hugh Arr, Bob Baker, Joe Baker, Michael Edington, and Douglas Edington. Funeral services will be on Tuesday, June 29, at 2:00 p.m. at Evans Mortuary in Rockwood, with visitation beginning at 1:00 p.m. A brief service will also follow at graveside at the Pine Orchard Baptist Church in Morgan County. The family wishes to express their appreciation to Arbor Terrace Assisted Living on Cross Park Drive in Knoxville, where Dorothy lived for several years, and to the staff at Brakebill Nursing Home.

*A Tribute to Mrs. Laymance from her daughter Dusty Nichols:

The hearts of Major Belle Reynolds, Tent No. 4, Jackson, TN., are saddened to relay the loss of our REAL daughter, Eula Jewel Pearson Laymance on June 30, 2009. At the age of 81, and having numerous health issues, she was unable to stay longer with her loved ones on earth.
Eula was the daughter of Charles Melvin Pearson and Sibba Darthula Barnes Pearson. Charles served in the Civil War from 1863-1865 as an enlisted soldier with Company “M,” 1st Regiment, New Hampshire Heavy Artillery. A few years after the war, he moved to Rugby, Morgan County, TN., where he served as a Magistrate within the 12th Civil District. He served the community with honor and distinction and was given a tribute by the citizens of Morgan County for his many years of faithful service.
Orphaned at an age, her father’s Civil War pension was used towards her early education, she (and her younger sister) were placed in the Grace Nettleton Home for Girls (affiliated with Lincoln Memorial University) in Harrogate, TN. Eula was the last surviving child of Charles and Sibba.
Eula enjoyed quilting and was well known for her skill in the east TN area. Many of her quilts were purchased by local businesses and displayed in offices. She enjoyed working in her many flower beds when she was physically able and also loved her vegetable gardens. For many years, she canned her own food. A large amount of it was given to her children, some to family and friends.
She inherited her soft brown eyes from her grandmother Little Bird (Lucy Belle Williams) Barnes. Upon her death, her hair was still very black; another gift from her Indian heritage. With a penchant for privacy, she rarely talked about her early years. Those who were close to her were fortunate enough to glean bits and pieces of her life before she married and had children. The one thing she longed for as a child was a mother but not long after the death of her father (she was 2 when he died), her mother died, and she was forever an orphan.
Eula became a mother for the first time at the age of 20 and proceeded to have three more children one right after the other. Her last child, a son, was stillborn and shortly after wards, she had a hysterectomy, forever eliminating the possibility of future children.
Her years spent at Grace Nettleton weren’t unhappy years, and in many ways, she says they were fortunate years. She was raised in a good “home.” A “home” with indoor plumbing, an education, girls who became special friends, enough food on her plate, the advantage of learning to play the piano, and tap dancing (to name a few). With her younger sister in the same “home,” they forged bond that lasted until her younger sister’s death at an early age.
Her younger sister never had children so Eula’s three children gained more than their fair share of attention and love from their laughing, fun-loving aunt. It was always an adventure when Aunt Bo visited!
Eula was in her twenties when she decided she was going to learn how to drive a car. She lived with her husband and three children on a dead-end gravel road in Morgan County, TN. It was a safe place for her to learn the basic’s before attempting the highway. Since her husband worked during the day, it was up to her to teach herself the general procedures of keeping the car on the road. She also had to learn the basic’s of using a clutch.
When her husband came home from work, he’d usually ask her how many mailboxes she’d knocked down during the day and whose mailboxes they were? She’d tell him, he’d head down the road, put the boxes back up, and repeat the process until she was efficient enough to control the car and use the clutch. Luckily for her neighbors, she was a quick study!
When her eldest daughter turned 15, she decided to get a job. Her husband jokingly told her he was glad she’d learned to drive. He wasn’t sure their new neighbors would be so accommodating.
She dedicated her life to her husband and children. She welcomed everyone in her home and loved nothing better than to cook huge meals for all who entered her door.
After her children married, each Sunday was a day spent together laughing and having fun. Eula’s husband was a jokester. He kept everyone in stitches with his stories and laid back way of looking at life.
Christmas was always a special time of year. Eula passed on many hand crafted gifts to her children. Every available space in her kitchen groaned with the abundance of food she’d been preparing for days.
Eula leaves behind three children; Dusty Laymance Nichols of Cumberland Furnace, TN., Bernice Laymance Hall of Harriman, TN., and Harold Dean Laymance of Oliver Springs, TN. She also leaves behind seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
Eula’s female descendants of Major Belle Reynolds, Tent No. 4, Jackson, TN., are Dusty Laymance Nichols, Tammy Melissa Nichols Solomon, Jennifer Rhian Nichols Maxson and Kelsey Alannah Solomon.
