DAR Patriot Index, Centenniel Edition, Part II -1994. Landrum, Zachariah: born: abt 1762 in Georgia,
Another death location: Spanish America, married: Letitia--- Served as a Private in Georgia.
Zachariah was a Revolutionary war soldier.
July 13, 1784 he was issued bounty warrant #6 to land in Franklin County, Georgia.

John, Zachariah, William and Joseph brought their families and settled near St. Stephens, in Washington County, Mississippi Territory (Clarke County, Alabama). Zachariah lived across the Tombigbee River, in Washington County, Alabama. Zachariah probably arrived prior to the other Landrum's, since he signed a memorial to Congress on November 25, 1803 - about the time his brothers were applying for passes through the Creek Indian Nation.

His family entered Texas when it was under Mexican rule.
1831 - He and sons, William and John, petitioned the Mexican government for land grants. They received in excess of 4,000 acres each.

Settlers on Old Plantersville Road
Part VII
... Old Plantersville Road to our first settlers, ... by Mattie Steussy, a daughter of Franklin Goldstein Dupree and granddaughter of Zachariah and Letitia Landrum. ...her story reads:
" We lived in the piney woods of East Texas. My father had a sawmill. We were along way from any town. Eight miles was a half a days journey in those days with deep sand and stumpy roads. There were very few roads that one could travel in a hack or buggy. In the winter we were waterbound as all streams were swollen and dangerous. There were footlogs, but very few bridges."
Some of the more prominent families who lived along the old road between the Noah Griffith homestead and the end of that road at Plantersville are listed below.
Punchard- ...
Springer- Elizabeth Landrum daughter of Zachariah and Letitia Landrum, married John May Springer in 1825 (Zachariah Landrum and wife in Texas at "Lake Creek, Coahuila and Texas" as their address was known on the Spanish Land Grant in 1831). The senior Landrums wanted all their family with them on their 4,400 plus acres. Three miles south of Montgomery and so the son-in-law John May Springer and daughter Elizabeth arrived at Lake Creek Coahuila and Texas in 1832.
Dupree- John May Springer and wife Elizabeth Landrum had a daughter with an unusual name Canzada, with the middle name of Tyne, for her mother’s maiden name. In 1847 Canzada married Franklin Goldstein Dupree. Family lore says he was French. He and father-in-law both loved the sawmill business, as did many of the next generations of Springer’s and Dupree’s. When the Springer-Dupree settlement was established across from the Griffith home, they were called Plantersville residents that little town being nearer than taking the Old Plantersville Road to Montgomery. Although the Dupree-Springer family established a family cemetery close by their homestead, many of the Dupree-Springer families are buried at Plantersville and Magnolia. Here credit should be given to the great part Mud Branch played in the lives of those before Texas had dropped off the address of "Coahuila and Texas" as with the Noah Griffith family and descendants, the Punchard’s, Depree’s and Springer’s, along with their sawmills and farming depended on their source of water from the ugly named Mud Branch.
The Old Plantersville Road leaving that town was the only dependable travel route to Montgomery and the need for the Dupree-Springer family to come often to visit the Zachariah Landrum family was described very well in the Mattie Steussy story of life in Plantersville in her childhood. She was a Dupree and her father ran the Dupree sawmill. She talks of reasons the Old Plantersville Road was so important to those early settlers....


Lettica Tyne

Another spelling: Lettia Tine.

Copyright © 1998-2002 T. Mark James
Letitia Tynes was born, according to her tombstone, in 1776 in South Carolina. She married Zachariah Landrum, probably in the mid-1790s, and had five children: Sarah, Catherine, John, William, and Elizabeth. Zachariah Landrum may have been from Georgia, and this has led some family historians to infer a link to one Henry Tyne (see below). Zachariah and Letitia lived in Marengo County, Alabama, until early 1830 when they moved to Stephen Austin’s colony in Texas. Zachariah died there in 1833 (when it was still part of Mexico), and Letitia in 1848, when it was Montgomery County, Texas. The name of one of Letitia’s grandchildren, Canzada Tines Springer, strongly suggests a link to the Carolina branch of the Tynes family, and particularly to Robert Fleming Tynes, since one of his children and one of his grandchildren bore the name Canzada Tynes. Again, due to Letitia’s absence from the estate papers of Robert Fleming Tynes, she was more likely a niece than a daughter of Robert Fleming Tynes. She was probably a sister or first cousin to Timothy Tynes of Alabama.


John Landrum

Note: Have no idea if this is a connection or not. Research needed.
LANDRUM, John Morgan, 1815-1861

LANDRUM, John Morgan, a Representative from Louisiana; born in Edgefield District, S.C., July 3, 1815; pursued classical studies and was graduated from South Carolina College (now the University of South Carolina) at Columbia in 1842; taught school for several years; studied law; was admitted to the bar in 1844 and commenced the practice of law in Shreveport, La.; mayor of Shreveport in 1848 and 1849; elected as a Democrat to the Thirty-sixth Congress (March 4, 1859-March 3, 1861); was not a candidate for renomination in 1860 to the Thirty-seventh Congress; continued the practice of his profession until his death in Shreveport, Caddo Parish, La., October 18, 1861; interment in Oakland Cemetery.


Rachel Ann Neatherlin

Another death date: 1844. Rachel Ann died in infancy of whooping cough. The name was used again later by her sister.

Definately conflicting information about this Rachel Ann. More research need!
