From "Sketches of the Bozeman Family" by Rev. Joseph W. Bozeman, circa 1885, Meridian, Mississippi, Mercury Publishing Company, pages 107-110: "Col. John Bozeman, son of Meady and Chloe (Nelson) Bozeman, born 17 Apr 1793 died suddenly at Capt Ross's, where he and his wife had stopped for the night in White Springs, Florida on 10 Nov 1848. He had eaten a hearty supper and then died after a few minutes illness and was buried in the Swift Creek Church Cemetery three miles from his residence in Hamilton County, Florida. He was a man of noble qualities, energetic, and public spirited, wealthy and popular. When he was a young man, he was the Superintendent of the Georgia Penitentiary and a Colonel of the Militia. He married three wives. The first was Miss Elizabeth Murphy, born 25 Dec 1798 and died 20 Feb 1836. They had eight children. His second wife was Rebecca Jewell Pratt, a Yankee lady from New Hampshire. She was born 23 Apr 1908 and died 17 Feb 1938. They married on 04 Feb 1837. They had only one child, Henry Marshall Bozeman , born 01 Nov 1837 and raised in Hawkinsville, Georgia. Mr. Bozeman's third wife was the 1st cousin of his second wife, her name was Sarah B. Pratt of Vermont and was a lady of fine culture. He married her in 1838. After John Bozeman's death she taught in the higher departments of the Female Baptist College in Cuthbert, Georgia in 1854-1855... later in life she married Major I.F. Baxter and lived in Memphis, Tennessee where she died on 13 Dec 1882. She was one of my valued correspondents writes Rev. Bozeman." John Bozeman also served in the U.S. Army during the War of 1812. He was a County Judge in Georgia from 1829-1835 and a member of the Georgia State House of Represenatives in 1830. He was of the Methodist Faith. He does not have a "marked" grave in this cemetery, although he is interred here.
