In 1805, Burwell Vick purchased the land with jewels from the Choctaws.The land eventually became a plantation owned by Vick’s son, W.H. Vick, who developed what's called the 100 cotton seed in 1843, a seed that that helped planters maximize pounds of cotton per acre and was eventually sold commercially.BILLY WATKINS: Tale of the kid who couldn't throwIn 1901, when the nearly 6,000 acres was divided among the four children, Henry Phelps became owner of the family homestead.

JOSEPH TAYLOR - Sumter Item

Monday, December 19, 2016

Joseph Taylor, the fifth child and son of the late the Rev. Samuel and Lilia Taylor, was born on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 1928, in the beautiful hills of Bladon Springs, Alabama.Educated in the schools of Choctaw County, Joseph only completed elementary school because during that era, male children were needed to work the farm and help support their family.While Joseph did not complete formal education, his mother and father instilled in him the respect, manners, moral character and principals that would take him further in life than he could have ever imagined.In 1947, at the age of 18, Joseph's journey from Bladon Springs would take him and his younger brother Robert Taylor to New York City, New York. Joseph would soon join the military and serve one tour of duty for his country in the U.S. Army in the Korean War.On Sunday, March 25, 1951, Joseph met the love of his life, Ida Lelia Blanding. They were married on Tuesday, July 10, 1951, and to this union were born four sons; Richard Anthony, Cornel, Emmanuel Timothy and Michael Gavon.Joseph and Ida were blessed to celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary this year.
