Public Story:
Taken from the History of Worth County, Georgia:
Mrs. Alcy (Dampier) Monk was a woman of rare personality, she was independent to the point of sacrifice, she was self-reliant and responsible. She dowered her family with her industry and the bread of idleness was not eaten on her place. She took hold of the farm and stock-raising after her husband died and carried it on successfully. Wool and beef cattle were the chief sources of income in those days. She had an irresistible love for literature, and would set aside days for reading just as she would set apart days for doing any other task, and would invite her friends into the feast of a good dinner and a feast of mind. Books and newspapers were scarce in those days. She took an intense interest in religion. She was Primitive Baptist. She would take her children and a lunch and walk five miles to Old China Grove Church to services. Services in those days came once a month and lasted all day. She wanted her stock to rest on Sunday.

Alcy Dampier was the daughter of John Dampier and Alcy Hodges. Alcy Hodges was the daughter of Joshua Hodges and wife, Ann Raiford. Joshua Hodges was a Revolutionary soldier. He died in Bulloch County, Georgia.
