Elias states that Joseph C. Inman and John C. Inman became the owner of Elias under the last will and testament of Major Joseph Inman, deceased.

Obituary of Abraham Inman: "Alas! in death's dark chamber hangs the curtain of gloom, but the finger of God will loop it back with a golden crown for the faithful.
    Death's sable wings has again o'erspread our mortal sky, and on his icy plumes has wafted another spirit away.
    Died at the residence of his son, T. R. Inman, Father Abram Inman October 30th, 1884, in the 85th year of his age. Silently the death angel came and harvested the golden sheaf that was only waiting to be gathered into the garner of God. Father Inman has long been a resident of this county, and is widely known as a veteran warrior of Christ. He was one of the founders of Bethlehem church, and 'neath his blazing star of hope doubtless many have been ushered into light. He was a devoted Christian, and with delight he wrought for the Master, ever gathering bright laurels of goodness to entwine o'er the brow of his beloved church.
    Though the lamp of his mortal life is extinguished, there yet radiates o'er the mind of this people the brilliant flame of his ecclesiastical life. For some months past age and affliction have crushed the vitality of his being, and ere long we find his frail body nearing the chilling stream of death. Though his tottering frame was withered with the severing touch of disease yet he bore it with patience and humility and was enabled through it all to enunciate 'Glory.' Softly and sweetly he fell asleep in the arms of Jesus with his heart brightly lighted with the lustrous..." [remainder of clipping was missing]

Source: "History of Obion County, Tennessee, Vol.1, p.204" contains the bio of Abraham Inman as written by a great granddaughter, Iris Wilson Hilliard.

"In the little country cemetery of Bethlehem, halfway between Troy and Obion, lie the last remains of the first Inman, so far as I know, to become a permanent resident of Obion County. He had moved from Marshall County, Mississippi, to Obion County in 1846. His full name was Abraham Inman, his dates 1805-1885, his occupations farmer and blacksmith. He married Melissa [tombstone and family records say 'Malissa'] Branch from Maury County, Tennessee, and they had nine children.

  1. The oldest child was Nicholas Franklin Inman (1830-1896), who married Margaret Sinkler, and they had three children who lived to be grown, Robert, Annie and Naomi. Franklin joined the Confederate Army and went through the stormy scenes of Shiloh, Tupelo, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Murfreesboro. He was a worthy member of the Masonic Fraternity.
  2. Arabella Inman (b. 1834) married J. E. Davidson and had a son, Abraham Davidson. Abraham married Anna Richardson, and their children were Earl, Lena and Lara (twins), and Robert.
  3. J. Fletcher Inman (1835-1894) married Martha Ann Buchanan on November 11, 1858. He was a farmer and a sawmill operator, a member of the Methodist Church South and a Royal Arch Mason.

    A quote from the yellowed page of his obituary says: 'Fletcher Inman was one of the standard landmarks of Obion County. He was a quiet man, his speech was brief and to the point, and he meddled in nobody's business.'

    Fletcher and Martha Ann had seven children: Margaret Isabella (called Belle), Eliza, Roxie, Joseph A., Sallie T., Wade and Abraham. Only two of them had children that lived to be adults. Joseph married Esther Grisham of Newbern, Tennessee, and they had two daughters, Mary and Ruth. Sallie married E. W. (Doc) Wilson, son of William M. Wilson. Their daughter, Iris Wilson Hilliard, is writing this sketch. 
  4. Eliza Ann Inman (b. 1837) married J. E. Hailey. They had two sons, Avery and Manley (Dick).

    Manley married Margaret Brown and had two children, Lottie and Fred.
  5. Thomas R. Inman (b. 1839) married Amanda Boone, and they had four children: John, Birt, Walter and Osro. When Amanda hied, Thomas married the twice-widowed Eliza Hoover Cox Culp, who brought two sons, Will Cox and Tom Culp into the family. 

    Thomas and Eliza had one daughter, Nora.
    Thomas was a Second Lieutenant in the Confederate Army from January 1862 to the end of the Civil War. He was wounded three times. He was a Democrat and a member of the M. E. Church South.
  6. Hezekiah (1840-1868)
  7. Lutie H. (b. 1851) married Dr. S. W. McDaniel, who had wide medical practice both in Obion and Lake counties. They had two sons, Ira and Elmer.
  8. 8. Melissa (b. 1853).
  9. 9. Margaret (b. 1856).
    I think my great-grandfather, Abraham Inman, must have been a good man and a happy one. His epitaph quotes his last word as a joyous 'Hallelujah!'"

Hiwassee Baptist Association Minutes, 1915

Sister Maggie Lee Davis, nee Inman, was born Mar. 12, 1894, died Nov., 1, 1914. Sister Davis made a profession of faith in Christ when about 11 years of age. She joined Fellowship church in Aug. 1914 and on the 16th day of that months she obeyed the command and followed the example of her saviour in the ordinance of baptism. Many who saw her that day will never forget how she rejoiced in a Saviour's love, as she came up from the water. Our visions are too short to comprehend why one so young and so consecrated should be taken from us, but let us always remember that our Heavenly Father knoweth best and let us bow in humble submission to his holy will. Resolved that the church extend her deepest sympathy to the bereaved husband & sorrowing parents, brothers and sisters, and commend them to Jesus who is a refuge and strength in ever time of need. May the family thus broken be one united family around God's throne.

Major Charles Inman

    Died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Nancy Stafford, of Fairgarden, Sunday morning April 9th. He was buried in the family cemetery Monday. Services by Rev. M. A. Rule.
    He was 89 years 1 month and 29 days old. He made a gallant soldier in both the Mexican and Civil Wars. He represented his country in the legislature and was always recognized as an honest hightoned gentleman and a good and upright citizen. He was a member of the M. E. church. He was the father of ten children, six of whom have preceded him to the Spirit land. Truly a good man has gone. His surviving children, his grandchildren and other relatives have our sympathy in this sad bereavement.

James Garner Marbut
    When the sad news was announced Monday, July 1st that J. G. Marbut was dead the entire community joined in one solemn regret. For about forty years or more it was one unchanged custom for the people of south-western part of Giles and the northern part of Limestone County, Alabama, to call on J. G. Marbut for the necessary articles of living, good advice, and their mail. No one ever expected or even feared that if it was necessary to go to his store they would find him away.
    He was always at his post. Marbuts was the place for social chats of the community. On rainy days and at Christmas times the young folks and neighbors would gather at Marbuts to pass the time away and arrange the meetings. At his store, the free and unstinted privileges of harmless social amusement and pastime was accorded his neighbors and friends, and at his comfortable home strangers found a happy and pleasant resting place. From a ten year old boy to the present, it has been the writer's happy privilege to visit Marbut's store, and he voiced the sentiments of the community when he says that J. G. Marbut was a gentlemen. As a merchant he was honest and clever, as a postmaster he was cautious, patient and accurate, as a Mason he was a valued brother, as a Christian he was bright and happy. Always ready to help in any way and any one to advance the good cause.
    He was the main pillow of the Missionary Baptist Church at Minor Hill which he loved and served most faithfully. It was through his untiring efforts that caused Minor Hill to have one of the most comfortable church buildings in the county. It was brother Marbut who saw that the neat belfry was properly constructed. It was he who saw to digging a most needed well on the church ground, and it was he who saw that the Sunday School was supplied with literature. In his death the church sustained a loss that cannot be replaced. He is missed and mourned by each member.
    As a husband and father words are to feeble to express his kindness. He was the proud father of two sons and three daughters. One son, a handsome young fellow, long since preceded his father to the better world, the others survive him. Their loss is great. As a magistrate he was just and popular. As a citizen he was true, patriotic, and neighborly. Thus in those several capacities he quietly, but unseemingly plodded along down the journey of a long and useful life, He lived in what is sometimes called a "back district," but he lived among the happiest and most independent people and their respect and appreciation for a time-honored friend was clearly shown by the concourse of people who gathered at Minor Hill July 2nd, and so carefully cut away the brush from a spot selected by himself, which was kindly donated by a friend and neighbor and tenderly assisted the Masonic Fraternity in making the first and almost scared "mound" in what is to be a beautiful cemetery.
    His Lord said unto him, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things; enter thou into the joy of the Lord."

Metro Fire Inspector Dies Following Freak Automobile Accident

    A Metro fire inspector died yesterday only hours after a freak incident that sent a Metro car spinning backwards before it crashed into the pumps at a service station and set them on fire.
    Hill Crockett Inman, 67, described by Metro Fire Chief Fred Davis as one of the oldest men in the department, died at his home about 5 p.m. following the 1:30 p.m. accident at 51st Avenue, North, and Charlotte Ave.
    Inman, who had been treated for minor cuts on his head and hands at General Hospital and released, apparently died of a heart attack.
    Police and other fire officials said the bizarre accident occurred after Fire Inspector Joe Walsh stopped his Fire Department car at St. Ann's Catholic Church on 51st Avenue and left Inman in the vehicle while he stepped inside to confer with a priest. They gave this accounting:
    Walsh left the engine running and Inman was sitting on the passenger side of the front seat.
    After Walsh had been inside about 10 minutes, Inman, 67, reached over to blow the car horn.
    After sounding the horn, Inman accidentally hit the gear shift lever on the steering column, engaging the car in reverse.
    Inspectors believe he tried to hit the brakes when the car started rolling backwards toward Charlotte Avenue, but his foot accidentally hit the accelerator instead, sending the car roaring backwards into the Charlotte Avenue intersection.
    Inman then apparently managed to steer the careening car into the Charlotte Avenue Exxon Car Care Center owned by Don Sandler.
    "I saw his car shoot out across the intersection and come into the driveway, but I just thought he had been in a wreck," said gasoline attendant Larry Crisp.
    "But the car kept spinning around and around in a circle and I didn't know what to think."
    Crisp said the backward spinning car made about four circles without hitting anything. But then it ran over a small curb and struck a portable sign used to advertise specials at the station.
    After striking the sign, the car, with Inman pinned against the passenger door, glanced off a nearby light post and headed toward the self-service gas pumps.
    There the car struck a van driven by Danny Drake of Batesville, Miss., before hitting two gas pumps near Drake's van.
    Both gas pumps exploded and caught fire, which caused Crisp to hit the emergency gasoline cut-off switch, stopping the flow of gasoline to the pumps.
    The car continued rolling backward and struck one more gas pump, which did not catch fire, before it finally came to a halt, and Inman fell out of door onto the concrete.
    Following word of Inman's death, Chief Davis said he had known him for about 28 years.
    "He has been a fire inspector for a number of years and is one of the most well known men in the department.
    "You wonder about these things. It's turned out to be a tragedy," Davis said.
    "He was one of these fellows that if you ask for a volunteer, he's the first one. You could always put his name down first because he would be there," the chief added. The owner of the station said about 12,000 gallons of gasoline are stored underground at the station.
    Metro firefighters put out the blaze, and Sadler, surveying the damage to his station, said he had no idea how much it would cost to repair the damages.
    "If the whole thing had exploded it would have been sure ruined this block though," he added.
