     There is a great deal of family lore on John Henry Tabb and I recall grandmother telling of the years in Mississippi before they came out to Texas. Evidently he was overseer of a "poor farm" in the Houston/Dallas area of Mississippi (North East of central Mississippi) and was a fiesty gentleman. He was also a veteran of the war between the states and fought with two of the armies of the South; the Army of Tennessee & the Army of Mississippi, rising from private to Captain by the end of the war or rather his capture before the end of the war. Great grandmother Tabb drew a widow's pension as a result of his service and we have the papers of application and award. Two of my aunts were members of the Daughters of the Confederacy and a ceremony was held a few years back honoring Captain Tabb as the only Civil war veteran to be buried in the Needwood (pronounced Neatwood) Cemetery. The land, some of it still in the posession of our family, was part of the old Rocking Chaire Ranche ranges. It was Ammons land rather than Tabb because Mr. Tabb retired and moved in with his daughter and son-in-law shortly after they married.

The uncles of my grandmother, Dave and Dick Goodwin evidently were companions of Great Grandfather Tabb before the Civil War and possibly they all went out to Tennessee together to sort out the mess early in the war. John Henry Tabb was wounded early on and sent home on convalescent leave. It appears he never returned and was carried on the rolls of the Army of The Tennessee as a deserter. At the same time he was listed as a Master Sergeant in the Army of the Mississippi. The Goodwin brothers evidently entered in the enterprise of being professional settlers after the war and would homestead land that was connected and build the improvements necessary to own the homesteads on the property line. After receiving title to the lands they would sell and move on to the next area where land was cheap and homestead more land. They wound up here in Collingsworth County, TX and eventualy split up from here and both married and moved on to other areas; one at Paducah, TX and the other to another location which I cannot recall. My father told the story of visiting one of his great uncles when he was a preteen and the uncle was a very old man with hands that shook so badly that he could barely hold the pistol while he shot the heads off the chickens they had for dinner. That same great uncle is written up in several articles I have seen at the county museum as being involved in a shooting where he missed a Mr. Beasley at close range with a shotgun loaded with buckshot but did manage to hit the county courthouse, inflicting damages for which he was charged $800.00. Mr. Beasley later was said to have charged that he still considered that Dave Goodwin owed him for the hat which he ruined in the shooting ( I think that Mr. Beasley was coming down the stairs of the courthouse when he saw Dave Goodwin and fell backwards on the stairs, leaving the hat in the line of sight).

I understand that John Henry Tabb came here from Mississippi with a group of neighbors late in his life (around 1890) and spent his last active years as a horse trader. He suffered a wound in the hip from the war that kept him from being physically strong enough to farm but he did craft a stone building on my grandfather's place with stones he quarried and cut and pieced together. It served as a hen house during my memory and might still be standing except we neglected it for enough years that it lost it's roof and fell in. He was also rattlesnake bitten during the time he lived with my grandparents but apparently survived that with no problems.

     He was Postmaster of Tabbville, MS., a merchant, a farmer, a building contractor, and operated a sawmill and a cotton gin. In order for the children to have better educational advantages they moved to Houston during the school terms, moving back to the farm during the summer months. They lived in a large two story frame building located just west of the present Memorial Funeral Home. In 1905 he sold his farm holdings to his son, James P. Tabb, and built a home on North Pontotoc where the Robert O. Kendall family now lives, and moved to Houston. From there he conducted his last farming operations on land lying on the old Van Vleet Road of which the preent Buford Nichols place was a part.

D.D. Tabb was a member of the Methodist Church where he served for many years on the Board of Trustees. In 1897 he was the contractor for the construction of Houston's second Methodist Church building, furnishing all the material and labor. This church was a white frame building with a bell tower, and stood where the present First Methodist Church now is on North Jackson Street. For three generations the bell that swung in the tower called the faithful to worship, rang out the old year and rang in the new, and sounded a sad requiem at the passing of many who had heard its more joyful sounds. The first wedding in the church was that of Laudie Tabb and Dugan E. Shell, and the last funeral service held in the church was that of Dugan E. Shell.

In the early nineteen hundreds he (with A. M. Harley and L. V. Abernethy) was on the Building Commission for the consturction fo the present Chickasaw County Courthouse.

1753 Autumn Avenue Memphis, Tenn.

My Dear Mr. Tabb,
I appreciate your thinking of me when your rally date nears. If I could call back a few years I would hie that way.
We had a Tabb get-together two weeks ago today in Houston, Miss. It was interesting and enjoyable; not so many of us but a loyal, prosperous, promising set of our very own leaves a good taste in the mouths of us old ones.
I am in my 79th year--- the widow of Will Tabb, grandson of John Henry Tabb, --have four daughters, all happily married and there are eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
At present I am handicapped by partial blindness that threatens to be total, unless I get a cataract removed on my blind eye before the other one covers the other eye entirely.
A grandson's marriage scheduled for August 22nd is my holdup at present as I plan to go. He is an only son of my second daughter, Mrs. Walter F. Green, Jr. of Harrisonburg, Va.
I will probably make my first airplane trip for the sake of time and comfort.
I hope all of you have a most enjoyable day together and that you are spared to have more. Thank you again and be assured I am always glad to hear from you.
Very truly,
LULA TABB

As a result, the marriage license and certificate on file for my father lists Daniel W. Tabb m. Gladys Eaves!!! It was not until he began working for the US Gov in 1942 that his birth certificate was needed and he found out his tru name. Prior to 1942, he was listed as Daniel W.

     LETTER FROM LAUDIE TABB SHELL to MAX TIDMORE dtd. Aug 29, 1971

Houston, Miss August 29, 1971:

My dear Mr. Tidmore,
You will have to excuse my writing, as my eye sight and hearing are both failing, but I am thankful that my mind is still clear and my health fairly good. I am 94 years old.
I certainly can identify Lula Tabb. She was the wife of my oldest Brother born and lived here in Houston until after her husband William Austin Tabb died and all the children were grown, then moved to Memphis to live with her oldest daughter, Mrs. J. A. Fulmer. She was totally blind when she died in her mid mineties. My father was Daniel Davidson Tabb, son of John Hugh Tabb (not Henry).
The Alexander Tabb (Uncle Sandy) who moved from Miss to Mount Pleasant, Texas was my grandfather's brother. He also had another brother living here, an itinerant preacher with two sons Ben and Joe
I think we have a pretty accurate chart of the Tabb family but I don't have a copy. Jim Hugh is out of town but when he comes back I will give him the chart you sent me and can compare it with ours and then contact you if there is any need to. I know he will be gald to get the chart.
Thanks for writing me.

Sincerely,
LAUDIE TABB SHELL
