EASTMAN FRANCIS TATE 

Eastman Francis Tate (March 31, 1868-November 24, 1933), sixth child of Eastman Rankin and Martha Ann (Wheat) Tate, was born in his grandfather Joseph Wheat's house, and educated in community old field schools and at the boarding school at Aaron Academy. He worked on his father's farm until he was 16, when he went to work in William E. Stockstill's neWly-opened Cheap Blue Store. It was in a new hamlet in Hancock County, on the just completed New Orleans and Northeastern Railroad a mile-and-a-half east of the older hamlet of Hobolochitto, and named at first Bailey's Switch, then Mitchell Station, and, finally, Picayune. His employer sent the lad down to Gainesville on the Pearl River, where there was a tent meeting, to set up a refreshment stand. There a little girl--with, as he said later, the most beautiful auburn hair--came up and helped herself to an apple. When he scolded her, she replied that she had a right to, since it was her father's stand. Thus Eastman Tate met Ida Minerva Stockstill, (47) and later they were married on August 22, 1886 at the Old Palestine Baptist Church two miles south of Picayune. Her parents were W. E. Stockstill (December 26, 1839-December 23, 1916) and Eliza Jane (Burks) Stockstill (August 4, 1843-March 5, 1923), m. August 25, 1858 in Hancock County. She was a daughter of Daniel Burks (February 22, 1805-April 6, 1886), who had been a drummer boy in the 2nd U.S. Infantry in the War of 1812 and taken prisoner by the British at Ft. Bowyer on Mobile Bay Point, and Jane (Smith) Burks (February 11, 1809-January 20,1898), a sister of "Poplar Jim" Smith, for whom the county seat of Pearl River County, Mississippi, Poplarville, was named. W. E. Stockstill, a well-to-do stockman of the community, had served in the Confederate Army as a sergeant in the Gainesville Volunteers, Company G, 3rd Mississippi Infantry Regiment, in the Gulf Coast and Vicksburg campaigns.

E. F. Tate's father gave the 18-year-old bridegroom and his 15-year-old bride a horse and a few head of sheep, and the young couple set up housekeeping in a three-room house on Pigott Hill east of Picayune. It had a "Georgia" bed and a lean-to kitchen with an oilcloth covered kitchen table. (48) Next, they lived in Picayune for a year or two in a log house a Mr. Beech had built on the site of Laurie Formby's later house, and still later lived behind the Blue Store until their two-story house was built. Later known as the Carr house, it was on the site of the present Magnolia Savings Bank on South Harvey Avenue in Picayune, and there my mother was born.
