Callie Floyd/Gambill in the background, with son Newton Floyd Gambill and grandson Jesse, helping to move from Shelbyville to Nashville [part of a series of 5 - the others are of Mary and the kids and are in the Gambill set.] Callie, a widow, was known to offer room & board to the local school teachers. She charged them $10 a month. Later in life she was still charging folks for rooms - see undated article below! Anyway, before her son Floyd went to visit cousins in TX he told her not to board any more teachers, as she was not charging enough. But she allowed Mary Allen in to share the front room with another female teacher. When Floyd came back from TX he was angry about the new boarder. Mary said in a 1972 interview, "He didn't have any use for me at all, at first. But every night I would be playing her old organ..and singing all the latest songs he began to change his mind about me...he'd learn all the songs and we'd sing together a lot you know." She left for Christmas break to see her family and he came down to see her there. When Mary Allen wed Floyd, they lived on Callie's farm and Mary would help her out in the house and help Floyd out in the fields - everything, she said, but plowing. She "rode the cultivator, chopped cotton, picked cotton, helped him build fences, replant corn and saw wood, haul in wood..." until their son JAG was born. ====== 3/12/09 conversation w/JA Gambill: Callie would read from the works of Josephus. She had been a teacher and would spell words slowly and loudly to drill them into the grandchildren. ====== undated newspaper article kept by Mary Allen Gambill: Aged Woman Wins Sympathy Of “Law” and State is Minus $5 Rooming House Permit Issue; Five Lawyers Aid Her A frail, 84 year old woman hobbled into General Sessions Court a prisoner Wednesday afternoon. Half an hour later she hobbled out, having routed the great state of Tennessee and won the active sympathy and support of the judge, law officers, volunteer counsel and spectators - all without taking the stand in her own behalf. A man prominent in General Sessions circles even went so far as to offer to serve whatever sentence might be imposed on her. She is Mrs. Callie Gambill, 109 Fifth Avenue., North, who was arrested at the instance of State Hotel and Restaurant Inspector San I. Bolton on a charge of operating a rooming house with out purchasing a $5 permit to do so from the restaurant and hotel division of Department of Conservation. WARREN SERVED The warrant against Mrs. Gambill was issued by Judge Brown Taylor with “great reluctance” after repeated demands by Bolton. The Judge Trigg Moore was forced to send for her Wednesday afternoon, also with “great reluctance.” Deputy Sheriff John Dismukes, first officer instructed to arrest the woman, replied that he did not want to be disrespectful of the court but “I would rather resign before arresting that old woman who’s trying to make a living renting rooms.” Finally the sheriff’s office forced three deputies to bring the old woman to court. She hobbled in leaning on a cane and wearing a blue denim apron. Judge Moore at once appointed four attorneys to defend her and a fifth volunteered to assist. One of the defense attorneys insisted the warrant should be quashed because “Mrs. Gambill doesn’t operate a hotel but a rooming house. She is entitled to a $15 monthly pension from the state and federal government...and now the state is trying to take $5 from her.” Asst Atty. Gen. Ned Lentz said no attempt was being made to persecute her but that she has repeatedly refused to pay Bolton the $5 for the permit “as all those around her who operate rooming houses have to do.” Defense counsel then stepped in to remark that the warrant was sworn against her under the Public Acts of 1911, which were nullified by the Public Acts of 1939. AID MOBILIZES While this was going on spectators in the court room put their heads and hearts together and planned to pay up any costs or fines assessed against Mrs. Gambill, and he offered to serve her sentence for her. Judge Moore quashed the whole proceedings, saying, “I don’t want to have to go through with this again. I am taxing Mr. Bolton with the costs of this case.” Mrs Gambill said as she hobbled out of the court room that she was probably entitled to an old age pension “but if I can rent my rooms I can get by, and there are others who need it more than I do. Last week I made 50 cents. I don’t think I should have to pay that $5 for running my rooming house.” ESCORTED HOME She was escorted home in style by the deputies who had arrested her “with reluctance.” Mrs. Gambill, a native of Bedford County, taught school 60 years ago in Texas, Florida and her native county, she said. She has been operating her rooming house for the past 11 years Although she broke her leg two years ago, she still operated the house (which is for men
Rusk County Courthouse (Henderson, TX)
Rusk County Courthouse (Henderson, TX)
Home to Caddo and Tejas Indians, the area of what would become Rusk County was first visited by Spanish explorers in 1691. The county was formed on January 16, 1843 and named for Thomas Jefferson Rusk. Rusk started his career in Georgia where he worked as a lawyer. He helped Gonzales defend their cannon, signed the Texas Declaration of Independence, fought at the battle of San Jacinto and served as Secretary of War and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the Republic of Texas. He fought Indians in East Texas and helped drive the Cherokee to Oklahoma. Later in his career he accepted the position of Post Master General from President James Buchanan and served as president pro tem in the U.S. Senate. Rusk was stricken with grief when his wife died of tuberculosis in 1856. A little over a year later, with a tumor growing in his neck, Thomas Jefferson Rusk shot himself. A statue of Rusk was erected in front of the courthouse in 1936. Henderson was founded 1843 and named in 1846 for James Pinckney Henderson, the first Governor of Texas. Henderson was appointed attorney general of the Texas army and served as Secretary of State for the new Republic after Stephen F. Austin’s death. He was then appointed Texas minister to England and France where he helped secure the recognition of Texas by those countries. He was elected the first Governor in 1845 and while serving the office took command of the Texas volunteers during the Mexican-American War and led the Second Texas Regiment to victory in Monterrey. In 1930, the East Texas oilfield was discovered near Henderson resulting in a boom during the following decade. The present courthouse was built just prior to this boom in 1928. The building is pretty typical of courthouses built around this time.
