1.  Joseph Henry King


     Co. B. 8th Ga. Infantry  Roswell Battalion

His father was Barrington King and his grandfather was Roswell King, the founders of Roswell, Georgia.  They were the first settlers of Roswell and Presidents of the Roswell Factories. 

     Several of the Roswell men saw battle in the early days of the war at the Battle of Bull Run (typically known as Manassas in the South) in Virginia. Charles Dunwody, Horace Pratt, Thomas Edward King, and Joseph Henry King all fought in that battle, one of the biggest of the early battles and the one that proved to the nation that the war would be neither quick nor grand. Apparently, there had been civilians on the sidelines of the battle watching it as if it were a sporting event. Despite being a Confederate victory, over 1,000 men were killed or wounded. Joseph King, Thomas King, and Dunwody were all severely wounded, with Pratt the only one unharmed physically. The war was not kind to Roswell’s men. Thomas King wounded at Bull Run, was killed at the Battle of Chickamauga in 1863. Barrington Simeral King, a doctor, was killed at Averasboro, North Carolina in 1865, less than a month before peace. William “Willie” Seagrove Smith died of dysentery in North Carolina just after the war ended.

     Joseph married Nellie Palmer Stubbs. Joseph went to Ft. Pulaski before Georgia succeeded from the Union. He joined the Confederate Army in Virginia as a private under the command of General Bartow and fought under Joseph E. Johnston. In 1861, He was seriously wounded at the 1st Battle of Manassas in the hip, leg, and hand. Joseph never fully recovered from his injuries. After the war, he founded "Eldorado" a popular rest site on FLA intra-costal (New Smyrna, FL). Years later, in a single night, almost all his descendants were drowned in Lake Okeechobee during the great hurricane of 1928 which ranks among the United States' worst natural disasters. This category 4 storm produced an unexpectedly large tidal surge, 18 inches of rain, and winds of over 150 mph. Headlines around the nation summarized the calamity: "Florida Destroyed!". A vivid account of this tragedy is chronicled in Lawrence E. Will's book, "Okeechobee Hurricane and the Hoover Dike".  Joseph's grandson, Edwin moved to Ft. Lauderdale and Edwin's wife was believed to be the first white woman to settle in the community.  Edwin built a home in Ft. Lauderdale which his descendants lived in until  1968 .  The home was then restored and opened to the public as a house museum - King-Cromartie House.
