# Note:

On September 6, 1843, Baylus C. Allgood was born in Blount County, Alabama. DeForest Allgood, his father, was born in Pickens County, South Carolina, in 1819, and died in Blount County, Alabama, where he migrated soon after his marriage. The latter was prominent in his locality in which he passed his long life, for he was a Baptist preacher and was engaged in ministerial work for sixty-three years. He brought up his children in the country upon his modest farm and gave them such educational advantages as were accessible to people of limited means. He was a son of an Englishman, Barnett Allgood, who married and died in South Carolina. He owned slave labor and worked it upon his plantation, and for his wife he chose a Miss Dean. Their issue consisted of sons a nd daughters as follows: Bannister, DeForest, Alvin, Jennie, who married Ellis Murphy; Nancy, wife of Jerry Ellis; Fannie became the wife of George Miller and Patsy married Stephen Ellis. Rev. Allgood married Temperance, a daughter of Stephen Clayton, of Pickens County, South Carolina. Death carried away this wife in 1843, and in time he married A rena Tidwell. The issue of his first marriage was: Miles, who died in the Confederate army, leaving a family in Alabama; Rev. S. C. of Blount County, Alabama, and now county treasurer; Elvira, who died as Mrs. Cassandra Moody; Barnett, a physician of Chepultepec, Alabama, and Baylus C., of this review. By his second wife Rev. Allgood's children were: Francis, deceased; Jane, wife of James Burnham, of Blount County; John B., of Abilene, Texas, and Rufus A., of Birmingham, Alabama.

The farm, as above indicated, felt the impress of Baylus C. Allgood's infantile hand and his father's home was his until his entry into the service of the Confederacy in 1861. He joined Company K, Nineteenth Alabama, and belonged to Wheeler's Infantry, Army of the Tennessee. In the fight at Shiloh he was seriously wounded in the thigh and after his recovery he was wounded in the left leg in the engagement at Chickamauga, retiring him again from the ranks for some time. He was with his command, however, when the war ended and was at Jackson, Mississippi, when the breakup finally came. The first thing to claim Mr. Allgood after the war was a ten months' term in school, after which he taught two years himself. He then took up farming, beginning modestly, as was necessary by the character of his layout and the exigencies of the situation, and he continued this vocation in his native heath until 1869 when he gathered together his few effects and immigrated to Texas.

Coming to the Lone Star state he stopped in Bosque county and passed eight years near the Hamilton and Bosque line. He took a preemption the n in the former county and was occupied with its improvement and cultivation, when he exchanged it for a Wise county tract, the nucleus of h is present extensive agricultural estate. Stock-raising and farming have proven profitable to him and from time to time his domain has suffe red expansion, other lands being acquired by purchase and added until a thousand acres, with nearly three thousand under plow, tell the story briefly of the effects of his Texas toil. Horse and mule raising has added its material portion to his gradually increasing wealth and a n ever-wise management of finances has placed him upon an independent plane today.

July 31, 1866, Mr. Allgood married Mrs. Sarah Tidwell, a daughter of William Montgomery, of Blount County, Alabama. Mr. Montgomery was born in the state of South Carolina, and married Miss Elizabeth Crawford, born in Tennessee, who bore him ten children. Mrs. Allgood was born in Alabama in 1837, and married, first, Yaggil Tidwell. Her and Mr. Allgood's children are: Elizabeth, wife of F. Eirring, of Hale County, Texas; James DeForest, of Fort Worth; Miles P. and Baylus C., of Wise County, and Sarah J., wife of Newton Johnston, of Whitt, Texas, the two last named being twins.

19th Regiment, Alabama Infantry

19th Infantry Regiment, organized at Huntsville, Alabama, in August, 1861, contained men from Blount, Cherokee, Pickens, Coosa, Chilton, and Jefferson counties. After serving at Mobile the unit was ordered to Corinth and later fought at Shiloh under J.K. Jackson. Transferred to General Gardner's command, it was active in the Kentucky Campaign, then was brigaded under Generals Deas, G.D. Johnston, and Pettus, Army of Tennessee. The 19th participated in many conflicts from Murfreesboro to Atlanta, was with Hood in Tennessee, and fought at Bentonville, North Carolina. It lost fifty-four percent of the 650 engaged at Shiloh, and reported 151 killed and wounded at Murfreesboro and 192 at Chickamauga. In December, 1863, the regiment contained 347 men and 228 arms. It was badly cut up in the battles around Atlanta and many were captured at Franklin. Only 76 men were present when it surrendered. The unit was commanded by Colonels Samuel K. McSpadden and Joseph Wheeler, Lieutenant Colonels George R. Kimbrough and Edward D. Tracy, and Majors Solomon Palmer and James H. Savage.

The 1920 census is so seriously flawed, it might have been intended to enumerate a different family, but I've accepted it under the following rationale. Although the original isn't available for examination, I've assumed the enumerator's handwriting was so poor or he was so lazy that accurate transcription was impossible. For example, it seems the enumerator simply assumed all the ancestors were from Alabama. Additionally, I've assumed "Doe" is intended to mean "Doc" as carved in Miles' gravestone and "Blaton" is a transcription error that means "Clayton." Finally, at their advanced ages, they may have forgotten their birth dates, Miles may not have been asked or the enumerator simply guessed.

Digital copy of original death certificate retained in my files as "AlgoodBaylusClaytonDeathCertificate.jpg." The mother's name listed on this death certificate is incorrect. His biological mother, Temperance CLAYTON, had been dead for 75 years as she died when he was only two years old. His first step-mother, Arena TIDWELL, had been dead for 41 years. The informant on Baylus' death certificate also was the attending physician and Mary Elizabeth DAY, Baylus' second step-mother, might have been the only one known to the community. Further, since Baylus' father had been dead for 20 years, the attending physician might not have known his name. The birth date listed on this death certificate is disputed by the gravestone that is carved with September 6, 1843.
