  • Notes 
    • My Search For John Stephen Jackson notes:

      "Cooper's Battalion became a component of the right wing division of federal troops commanded by Brig. Gen. Duncan L. Cinch.  They left Ft. Drane for Tampa Bay on 26 Mar, 1836 and crossed the Withlacoochee at Blodget's Ferry on 29 March.  There the Seminoles hit the rear of the column, killing two soldiers and wounding thirteen.  On 2 Apr 1836, Major Cooper was ordered to halt his battalion and build a fort to care for the sick and wounded; they were left with 17 or 18 days short rations to wait for the army's return from Tampa Bay.  Osceola invested 'Fort Cooper' and tried to storm it with over 500 warriors.  The siege continued to two weeks and the soldiers inside were reduced to eating candles."

      "Havilah Howell Mapp (i.e. Cousin Villa) said that her grandfather, John McBride was once a schoolteacher in Eatonton.  He must have taught at the prestigious Eatonton Academy, i.e. he and Betsy named their second child Alonzo Church, in honor of that school's highely regarded headmaster."

      JSHJr. Note:

      A search snippet in Google Books has a likely reference to his death: Georgia Genealogical Magazine - Page 37 - issue? 1976? "Died at Fort King, East Florida, on the evening of the 26th April last, of Congestive Fever, Mr. ALONZO McBRIDE, of Houston County, Geo . in the 20th year"  Fort King was built 1827 3 miles east of Ocala, FL.  The purpose was to protect the Indian agent established in accordance with the Treaty of Moultrie Creek as a result of the First Seminole War.


      Betty Howell Traver notes:

      "Alonzo McBride was the son of John McBride, surveyor general of Georgia.  After John McBride died, the family moved with the Howell's to Houston County (Perry, GA).  Being the oldest, he enlisted in Gen. Andrew Jackson's war against the Indians (in Alabama ?), where he was killed.  His will is in the courthouse in Perry, Jimmy Brittain's mother saw it written just before he left for the Army."
