Daniel Tabor, 1794-1855, was the son of William Tabor, 1739 d. bef. 1810, & Nellie. Daniel Tabor married Mary Martha "Polly" Phlummer/Flummer, 1796-1881, d/o Samuel Phlummer/Flummer, 1769 to abt 1845 & Elizabeth Peck, b. abt 1769, d. aft 1842. Their home was known as "Tabor Lane".
DANIEL TABOR is on a list with 36 other men who were enlisted to serve in the Army of the 1812-1814 Mexican War. " It is a little strange that the frontiers should have furnished so many men for the army, when their absence so greatly exposed their families. But when we reflect that no people felt the horrors of war more sensibly that they did, and that no people are readier to serve the country in the day when aid is needed, than those of the mountainous...(text ended)"
DANIEL TABOR & MARY MARTHA FLUMMER HISTORY BY MICHAEL OTIS TABOR
Daniel and Mary (Flummer) Tabor lived their life together as farmers in Tazewell County, Virginia, near Bluestone. Tazewell County is located in the rugged Alleghany Mountains of southwestern Virginia. It was created in 1799 from Wythe and Russell Counties and had earlier been a part of Montgomery County. The county seat was called Tazewell but also known as Jeffersonville and Tazewell Court House. Bluestone was a small town in eastern Tazewell Co., VA., a little west of present-day Bluefield, VA. Bluestone was also known by its railroad name St. Clair. A post office was located there as early as 1829 and continued after the 1850's. This town should not be confused with another Bluestone which was only a few miles away in Mercer County, Virginia/West Virginia.
Mary Martha's parents were Samuel Flummer (c.1769-1845) and Elizabeth (Peck) Flummer. Samuel was an early settler of Tazewell Co., VA., with his name appearing on taxpayer lists as early as 1804. He acquired landholdings on well over 200 acres and was involved in local civic affairs serving on grand juries and performing other duties for the local county court. Mary was one of several children born to Samuel & Elizabeth Flummer including her brothers, William, and Solomon, and her sisters, Nancy , Elenor, and Elizabeth.
Daniel and Mary were married in Russell County , VA., on 12 November, 1818, by a person named Kelly. As a young man, Daniel was described by his wife, Mary, as being "full six feet high, blue eyes, dark hair, and fair complexion."
Daniel saw service in the War of 1812, as a volunteer with the rank of private. He enlisted at Jeffersonville on 14 September 1813, and served with several units of the Virginia Militia during the war including Lt. Rees B. Thompson's Company of Infantry (112 Regiment), Capt. James Michie's Company of Infantry (4th Regiment), Capt. Nathaniel Perkins Company of State Artillery, and Lt. David Doak's Detachment of Infantry (4th & 5th Regiment). He was discharged at Norfolk, Virginia, on 13 March 1814, he then substituted at Jeffersonville and served with Capt. William Gillispie's Company. He was discharged again at Jeffersonville on 6 March 1815.
As a veteran of this war, Daniel applied for a land bounty of 80 acres in February 1851, under the Bounty Land Act of 1850. He may have secured the 80 acres for which he applied but may have gotten only 40 acres since he had a difficult time proving the required six months of service because he had lost his certificate of discharge.
Daniel held a substantial amount of land, owning property both north and south of the Bluestone River in Tazewell County, Virginia. According to Tazewell County deed records, his real estate holdings exceeded 400 acres. Most of the acreage he acquired from Henry Linkous and his wife, Fanny, of Montgomery County, Virginia, on 15 October, 1822, for consideration of $100.00. The deed to 400 acres was recorded twice in Tazewell County, Virginia, in April 1823, and in January 1825. The reason for the second entry is not known. This property was inherited by Fanny Linkous on the death of her father, Jacob Shell. This was the same Jacob Shell whose daughter, Nancy, married Archibald Tabor in 1792, in Montgomery County, Virginia. On 28 August, 1831, Daniel purchased a cow from the estate of John Compton for $6.25.
From December 1844, to April 1854, Daniel was involved in several land transactions in Tazewell County. On 12 December 1844, he secured a deed to 14 acres of land next to Charles Tiffany. This he obtained from George W. G. Browne, the Tazewell Commissioner for delinquent and forfeited lands, for the sum of $22.00. This was the land, which previously belonged to William Lasley, near the 400 acres of land Daniel had purchased in 1822. Lasley had forfeited this land for non-payment of taxes due, and Daniel Tabor then bought it at public auction held 18 August 1844. Daniel sold a piece of real estate to Charles Tiffany containing 30 acres 5 February 1850, for which he received $200.00 payment. On 21 July 1851, Daniel bought 40 acres of land adjoining his own from S. P. Pearis of Giles County, Virginia, for consideration of $1.00. Daniel Tabor and James T. Bane jointly purchased land for $110.00 19 April 1851, from heirs of Isaac Brown. James T. Bane then sold his interest and rights to Daniel 29 March 1854 for $10.00 in the property deeded to them jointly.
Daniel and Mary raised a large family of thirteen children -eight boys and five girls. It is thought that all of their children were born at Bluestone, Tazewell County , Virginia, but documentation is absent or not clear on several.
Mary appears to have been baptized in 1844 into the Antioch Disciples of Christ (Christian) Church near her home in Bluestone Valley. Russell B. Tabor , a son, also served as an elder in that church being baptized in 1858.
In 1850, Wilbur Slade, a teacher (born abt 1823 in New York) was living with Daniel's family. About a year later, in 1851, Margaret Tabor, were married. She became the family's second daughter to marry. It is wondered if romance bloomed because of their closeness.
Daniel died at his home, at Bluestone, 11 February 1855, and was buried on his farm called Tabor Lane. His will, which was written almost a year prior to his death, was recorded 28 February 1855, in Tazewell County. He bequeathed his lands on the north side of Blustone River and one-third of the sale of the remaining estate to his wife, with the rest to be sold and divided among his children. His sons, Charles and John, were named executors. In February 1856, Daniel's personal property was sold for a total of $1655.11.
Following Daniel's death, Mary applied for and received a warrant for 80 acres of bounty land as a veteran's widow under the Land Bounty Act of 1855 (L.B. Warrant 4759-80-55) on 27 August 1855. On 8 September 1855, she sold her bounty land for an unspecified sum of money. The warrant was eventually redeemed by a John Keyser of Floyd County, Iowa, on 12 January 1856 for government land in that area. It is probable that the warrant was purchased by a middle-man who sold it to Keyser for a profit.
During the CIVIL WAR, Mary and her family had a difficult time. It was necessary for them to hide meat between their bedclothes to keep it from the Northern soldiers. The enemy also drove off a young colt they possessed, and the family Bible was destroyed.
Seven of Daniel & Mary's son's fought in the CIVIL WAR on the Confederate side. Serving in the Confederate army were:
Samuel Flummer Tabor-Company "I" 16th Regiment, Virginai Cavalry
Amos H. Tabor-Company "L" 45th Virginia Infantry (later part of 23rd Va Inf. Bat.)
John Tabor- Company "I" 16th Regiment Virginia Cavalry
Russell B. Tabor-Company "I" 16th Regiment, Virginia Cavalry
William W. Tabor-Company "H" 45th Virginia Infantry (same as Tazewell Rangers) DIED IN WAR
Daniel T. Tabor -Company "L" 45th VA. Inf. (later part of 23rd Va Inf. Bat.) DIED IN WAR
Augustus Tabor-Company "E" 17th Regimant, Virginia Cavalry
They served in the war with the 16th and 17th Virginia Cavalry Regiments, and the 45th Virginia Infantry. The two youngest sons, William W. and Daniel T. died in the war within a few months of each other in late 1861.
William W. Tabor was the first of the sons to enlist in military service. He enrolled 29 May 1861 at Wytheville, Wythe, Co., VA.., as a private in Company "H" (also known as the Tazewell Rangers). He died at Big Sulphur Springs September 1861. Before his death, he wrote letters in which he tells of a battle he was in at Gauley in Greenbrier Co., VA/WV. It was during this battle that the Confederates suffered large losses of men and heavy losses of horses, wagons, cattle, coffee, sugar, rice, salt and meal.. In addition to that the Confederate Commander, General John Buchanan Floyd was wounded. William said he was standing guard duty and was tired of army life and wished he were home again where he could get something good to eat because he wasn't getting it in the army. William's estate was settled after his death. It appears he owned only a note from his brother, Charles T., for the amount of $173.00. William's brother-in-law, Isaac Q. Moore, served as administrator of his estate.
Amos H. Tabor & Daniel T. Tabor joined together 3 September 1861 at Big Sewell in Company "L", 45th Virginia Infantry, which later became part of the 23rd Virginia Infantry Battalion on 15 January 1862. Amos served as a sergeant Daniel served as a private and died late 1861. Daniel T's personal property, which consisted of a sorrel horse, one saddle, and eight hogs, were disposed of at sale during the war for $110.50 on 12 February 1862, also under the oversight of his brother-in-law, Isaac Q. Moore, administrator.
Samuel Flummer Tabor enlisted in Tazewell County, VA., on 9 October 1862, as a private in Company "I", 16th Regiment, Virginia Cavalry. He was described as 5' 6" tall, blue eyes, auburn hair, and dark complexion.
John Tabor enlisted on 20 January 1863, in Tazewell County, VA., as a private in Company "I" 16th Regiment of the Virginia Cavalry. He was described as 6' tall, fair complexion, blue eyes, and dark hair. He served as a captain in the Battle of Gettysburg and was captured by the Federals 1 July 1863. He was in the USA Hospital suffering with Debiltas (?) and was transferred to the Baltimore, MD., hospital 10 August 1863. He was later paroled.
Augustus S. "Gus" Tabor enlisted as a private in Company "E", 17th Regiment, Virginia Cavalry at Mercer County, VA/WV., on 3 September 1863 by Capt. Jacob Straley. Most of his service involved working with regimental horses.
Russell B. Tabor enlisted as a private in Company "I" 16th Regiment, Virginia Cavalry. Little is known of his duty except that he was assigned to the special police in Tazewell County , Virginia.
Three of the sons: Samuel F., John, and Augustus Tabor joined other men in late 1864 in deserting from the Confederate Army. Following the CIVIL WAR, several of the children left the family area in Tazewell County, Virginia, and moved to other places particularly West Virginia. John, Augustus , and Mary with her Husband, Walter R. Osburn, eventually settled in Wayne County, West Virginia.
Amos H. Tabor, a blacksmith by trade, sold his 50 acres of land near his parents old farm 23 March 1865, and moved with his family to Pearisburg, Giles County, Virginia, where he was located in 1870. In 1880 he, his wife Cynthia, and son, J.D., were living in Rock Township, Mercer Co. WV., with Amos' daughter and son-in-law, Mary V. & William E. Blake.
Some of the children including Samuel F., Charles T., Elizabeth, and Russell B. Tabor stayed in Tazewell County, Virginia, near their mother. Charles and Samuel farmed in Tazewell County as did Russell Tabor. On 26 May 1870 Russell B. Tabor was elected to the office of overseer of the poor of Clearfork Township, in Tazewell County, Virginia. He also continued to serve as an elder and representative of the Disciples of Christ Church.
In her later life, Mary (Flummer) Tabor (who was called Polly in the 1860 and 1870 Tazewell County, VA., Census) lived with her son, Russell B. Tabor, on the farm she and Daniel had owned. In 1878 she applied for and received a Federal Pension of $8.00 per month as a widow of an 1812 War veteran under the Act of 1878. She died 10 January 1881 and was buried on the old farm -"Tabor Lane"

The lodge met the first Saturday of each month in a log building on the top of the hill between the Alex St. Clair and the Tiffiney homes, near where , in 1966, the old St. Clair School stood at St. Clairs Crossing.
The current building was started in 1895 after a fire destroyed the frame building in which it had been meeting at Graham, VA. C. W. Anderson was the Master in 1895. The cornerstone was laid in the new building on July 2, 1895.
The Lodge was named in honor of: COLONEL EDWIN HOUSTONHARMAN, s/o Erastus Granger Harman & Sarah Bane, was born February 13, 1835, in the Bluestone Valley, Tazewell County, Virginia. He was the son of Erastus Granger Harman, one of the first-born of that section of the county. On the 2nd of April 1861 he married Miss Jennie King at the bride's home on Back Creek, Pulaski County, Virginia; a few days thereafter entered the Virginia Infantry.
In the Spring of 1862 he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment. He was a daring and accomplished soldier and officer; and itwas strangely decreed by fate that he should fall in battle but a fewmiles distant from the place where he won his bride three years previously. On the 9th of May 1864, Colonel Harman was mortally wounded at the battle of Cloyd's Mountain, and died from the wound two days later. His dust now rests in a hero's grave in Thorn Spring Cemetery, about six miles west of where he fell in battle.

REGARDING THE WIDOW OF ALLEN PRESTON TABOR: Bluefield Daily Telegraph Friday Morning, May 23, 1930 Elizabeth, is Allen P. Tabor's widow, and she has married Edward T. Scott on May 20, 1930.
"MRS. ELIZABETH TABOR BRIDE OF EDWARD SCOTT. Two pioneer and widely connected families of the Bluestone Valley in Tazewell county became united through the ties that bind Tuesday evening when Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Tabor became the bride of Edward T. Scott. Both reside in the Ebenezer neighborhood and have known one another all of their lives. It was the second marriage of both. The ceremony was performed at the parsonage of the Bluefield, Va., circuit in Bluefield, Va., with Rev. W. D. Larrow the officiating minister. The groom is 69 while his bride is 71. Mr. Scott is the father of ten children by his first wife, while the bride is the mother of four children, three daughters and one son by her former marriage. Her children being (Robert) Walton Tabor and Mrs. S. C. Bane of Bluefield, Va; Mrs. Joe Hale, of the Falls Mills road, and Miss Annie Tabor, who makes her home with her mother. Both the bride and groom have many grandchildren, while the groom is a great-grand-father. Mrs. Joe Hale, daughter of the bride, is the mother of fourteen children, grandchildren of the bride. Before her first marriage the bride was Miss Mary McCallahan. These families some years ago became united through marriage when (Robert) Walton Tabor, son of the new Mrs. Scott, married a daughter, Ada Pearl "Addie" Scott, of the groom of Tuesday. Mr. Tabor in addition to being the son-in-law of Mr. Scott now becomes his step-son also., whereas Mrs. Walton Tabor is both the daughter-in-law and step-daughter of her husband's mother, Mrs. Scott.
If all of the imemdiate members of the family of the bride and groom were to sit down at the table at the same time fifty seats and fifty plates would be neecssary to accommodate them. Tuesday evening a wedding dinner was served at the home of the bride at Ebenezer with both the house and yard full of guests. Tuesday night the couple received an old time serenade when tin pans, cow bells and other home made noise makers were used. * Both the bride and groom own nice homes and farms in the Bluestone Valley, near the Ebenezer church."
* This was know as "Belling the Newlyweds", I remember this practice from my early life in VA., & WV.-Karen EAGLE Moman
DEATH: Clinch Valley News, Friday, June 13, 1941 (paper published on each Friday-est. 1845) MRS. SCOTT Mrs. Mary E. Tabor Scott, aged 82, of Bluefield, Va., died Wednesday afternoon at St. Luke's hospital. Death was attributed to heart failure brought on by complications from a fractured hip a few weeks ago. She is survived by her second husband, E. T. Scott, two daughters and one son: Mrs. J. M. *Hall of Falls Mills road; Mrs. Sidney Bane of Bluefield, Va., and R. W. Tabor of Roanoke. There also survives one brother and one sister, C. S. McClannahan, of Shannondale, and Mrs. Maggie Wimmer, of North Tazewell
* Should be HALE (This is Mary A. Elizabeth McClannahan whose first husband was Allen Preston Tabor, s/o Russell B. Tabor and Elizabeth Compton)
