From Joel Atcheson:
Both of the Chancellor wives are S.J.'s daughters. (See more at Cool Spring Cemetery.) Elizabeth Autrey, was his oldest child. She was married to a member of the Lawhon family of Smith Co, Tx, who died in the Civil War before she married C.W. Autrey. His son D.M. was the Post Master at New Salem in 1896.
    For some more info, if you're interested, below is an obit, I found on the net, that tells part of their story. Enjoy! Speaking of clearing and cleaning cemeteries, my eldest brother and I have spent the last several months restoring the "long lost" (for about 90 to 100 yrs.) Atchison family cemetery, here (about 5 miles from my home.) It's on "timber company land" and it took quite a while to get permission to go there and look for it. It's very hard and dirty work, but it's worth it!

In Memorium
William P. Washburn was born in Perry Co., AL, Sept. 12, 1845, moved to Bibb Co., AL, when a small boy with his parents; lived on a farm until April, 1862, when he enlisted in Co. B., 20 th AL Regiment, Confederate service, was with that command regular until Jan., 1865 when he was captured & sent to prison at Camp Douglas, Chicago, Ill.; was made prisoner twice during his service at Vicksburg, Miss., and Nashville, Tenn. Was wounded slightly in the arm at Jonesboro, GA. After being retired from prison in June, 1865, he returned to the farm in Bibb Co. He was married to Miss Martha Atcheson in Jan., 1866 moved to Texas Oct. 22, 1866, arriving at New Salem the latter part of Nov., 1866. He has lived in & near New Salem continuously since. To his first marriage was born 4 children, 2 of whom died when young, 2 survive him. He joined the Baptist Church at New Salem in Sept. 1884, was baptised by Rev. Traylor. He lived a christian member of that church, contributing liberally to the support of his pastor & the upkeep of his church. As a christian he believed his God, was honest & upright in his demeaner; held the confidence of his church & friends. As a neighbor he was observant of his neighbor's interest as well as his.

In an earlier email, I mentioned that one of S.J.'s daughters buried at New Salem (Elizabeth Autrey) was married to a Lawhon, who died in the Civil War. The 3 children buried in our cemetery, are hers. Bennett, in grave #14, is S.J.'s older brother. None of the other graves have marked stones. One thing I think about often is, S.J. owned two homes and about 500 acres of land and several slaves when he took flight for his safety, left Alabama and moved to Texas. If not for that, he and most of the others buried in New Salem, would be buried here, in our cemetery.
