Mahala Trammell



Mahala Trammell [4801], daughter of Jacob B. "Jake" Trammell [61] and Mary "Polly" Hogshead [62], was born in 1820 and died on an unknown date.

General Notes: Her nephew (Thomas J. TRAMMELL), in a written statement applying for Indian privileges, said Mahala could talk the Indian language.

Noted events in her life were:

•  She was involved in a court case on 18 Mar 1847 in , Macon Co, NC.1 Mahala sued Andrew COLVARD for bastardy.  Andrew Colvard comes into court and confesses judgement for all costs and files bond with the court.

Mahala married Archebald Bateman [4802] [MRIN: 1711] on 12 Nov 1846 in , Macon Co, NC.2 Archebald was born about 1809 in , , , Ireland and died on an unknown date. They had two children: Leander and Jacob V..

Marriage Notes: In the Macon County, North Carolina, Marriages book 1829-1939 compiled by James Wooley page 8 lists Archibald Bateman marrying Mahota Lambert Nov. 12, 1846.

Leander Bateman [6004] was born about 1851 and died on an unknown date.

General Notes: He left home and didn't return, probably killed.

Leander married Nancy Lasaphine "Lassie" Davis [5988]3 [MRIN: 2228], daughter of William M. Davis [4892] and Naomi Ray [4891], on 26 Dec 1872 in , Macon Co, NC.2 Nancy was born on 5 Dec 1857, died on 12 Aug 1931 at age 73, and was buried in Aquone Baptist Cem., Macon, NC. They had three children: Harve L., Noami "Oma," and Martha.

Harve L. Bateman [6095] was born on 23 Oct 1882, died on 25 Dec 1909 at age 27, and was buried in Aquone Baptist Cem., Macon, NC.4 The cause of his death was train accident.

Noami "Oma" Bateman [6096] was born after 1883 and died on an unknown date.

Noami married W. N. "Bud" Hicks [6099] [MRIN: 2267]. W. was born on 27 May 1865,5 died on 15 Feb 19435 at age 77, and was buried in Aquone Baptist Cem., Macon, NC.5

Martha Bateman [6097] was born about 1875 and died on an unknown date in , , Tx.

Martha married Robert Price [6100] [MRIN: 2268] on 27 Apr 1890 in , Macon Co, NC.6 Robert was born about 1860 and died on an unknown date.

Jacob V. Bateman [6110] was born in 1848.

Jacob married Celia Evans [6111] [MRIN: 2272] on 2 Apr 1871 in , Macon Co, NC.7  They had one son: John.

John Bateman [6109] was born before 1875 and died before 1903.

John married Thedisia F. "Docie" Yonce [6102]8 [MRIN: 2271], daughter of David A. Yonce [6006] and Albie M. Davis [5990], on 26 Nov 1899 in , Macon Co, NC.2 Thedisia was born on 8 Dec 1878,3 died on 3 Sep 1961 at age 82, and was buried in Aquone Baptist Cem., Macon, NC.

Mahala next married Lambert [4803] [MRIN: 1712].  Interesting, Van Trammell was accused of murdering a Lambert over a heated argument about the Civil War.  Is this Lambert related to the murdered Lambert?  I bet it is. 

Mahala had a relationship with Andrew Colvard [4804] [MRIN: 1713]. Marriage status: unmarried.
