Subject: [DOVER-L] Samuel and Susan Campbell Dover's Line part A

The following info is mostly for the benefit of those Dovers who are descended from Susan Campbell Dover ref: as subject. I have been communicating with a descendant of Susan's son by a first marriage, Hardaway Youngblood. There has never been any "proof" of this marriage, or that Hardaway was actually her son until now. They are as certain that he was her son, even though there isn't a marriage record for them, any more than there is proof of one for most of the unions that we recognize. There are for them, bible records, and various printed biographies to support this. The most significant things that I rec'd a copies of included a letter from Susan to her daughter Eliza, that was written during the Civil War, a photo of Susan's son, Hardaway , and a copy of a statement from JD Worthington, a greatgrandson of Hardaway Youngblood that was part of a biography of John Marion Bolton. Susan's letter was written in 1863. It makes reference to having rec'd a letter from her son Thomas [my greatgreat grandfather married to Nancy Ross] who was in the confederate army, and what he related about the conditions there. She says that "Bryant was at Dalton the other day and the report there was that Longstreet's men was cut to pieces dreadful on the 8th day of the month though I hope it is a fals report." She talks about a group of 60 yankees stealing the horses and mules. Names mentioned are "the McCamy's, Howels, James Crow, the Bryants family, and that man Cook. She closes with, " Adaline [Dover] sends her love to you all, and give our love to all of the children and except [accept] the same yourselves we remain with love and respect, your Affectionate Father and Mother and Sister till
separated by Death. Samuel and Susan Dover to John M. & Eliza E. Bolton and family, Farewell."
If any of her descendants would like to have copies, I will be glad to cpy & send it to them....just let me know.

Subject: [DOVER-L] Samuel and Susan Campbell Dover Part B

>From the biography of John Marion Bolton, grandfather of JD Worthington. [He preached at ten known churches in Ga.]

The heading is " 406th Dist. Ga. Militia. PICKNEYVILLE SETTLEMENT. Gwinnett County, Ga.

" In 1830 a stagecoach ran through Lawrenceville, Pinckneyville, and to Bennington, Alabama. Pinckneyville was a village with a post office. It was a trading post and a stagecoach stop, it also had a Inferior Courthouse located there. In 1870 this courthouse was moved to Norcross, Ga.

In 1813-1818, the first settlement established near what is now Lawrenceville, was Hog Mountain, There was a fort there called Fort Daniel in 1812. Hog Mountain gave way to was is now know as Lawrenceville, nearby."

"Samuel Dover married Susan Campbell Youngblood about 1828, for my grandmother their oldest child was born 7/17/1829, some where near Lawrenceville. According to my uncle Tom Bolton, Samuel Dover drove a stagecoach about 1820, between Augusta, Gainesville, and Dalton, Ga. when Dalton was in Murray County. Perhaps that is why Samuel Dove moved from Gwinnett County in 1850 to Murray County, where the 1860 census reveals that he had reside there for 10 years. He died and is buried there.

There can be no doubt that Samuel Dover was in Pinckneyville many times, because it to was a stagecoach stop. John Marion Bolton was appointed Captain of the 406 District, Pinckneyville, 11/25/1848, by Governor George W. Towns of Milledgeville, at age 23 1/2. This indicates he was a man of good character. This was 2 months and 7 days before he married grandma, Eliza E. Dover, 2/11/1849.
The 1850 census of Gwinnett County Ga. list John Marion Bolton as a school master, age 25, born in SC. His wife, Eliza E. Dover is listed as age 22. They had one child James Samuel Bolton, age 9 monts. Their marriage license is on file in Book 4, pg. 106, Court of the Ordinary, Lawrenceville, Ga. Marriage records for Gwinnett County begin with 1844, due to a fire about 1871, many records were destroyed, hence my failure to findthe marriage record, if there, of Samuel Dover.

My Maternal GGrandparents, Samuel and Susan Campbell Youngblood Dover, were both born in SC, according to the 1850 census of Gwinnett County, and the 1860 census of Murray Co. These censuses supply their ags from which their birth years can be determined.

Today Pinckneyville is a cross-roads settlement including Mt. Carmel Methodist Churchyard where Hardaway Youngblood lies buried, only child of Susan Campbell Youngblood Dover by her lst marriage to a Youngblood. His identity was first made know to me over 40 years ago by uncle Tom Bolton.
Hardaway Youngblood was a half brother of Eliza E. Dover Bolton and upon his mother's marriage to Samuel Dover, grew up with the Dover family for some years. So close were they that grandma Bolton named her 2nd son, William Hardaway Bolton for him. [Church and cemetery established 1826] "

A few lines follow regarding Kate Bolton's Bible, copies , and Alice Youngblood great granddaughter of Susan, being the only direct descendant living near Pinckneyville. This was compiled by J.D. Worthington in 1967.

The following notes come from a "Lineage of Susan Campbell" compiled by James D. Worthington along with notes from Alice Youngblood, both great grandchildren of Susan's.

Susan Campbell b. 1802, in SC. Based on 1850 Gwinnett Co. Ga. Census and 1860 Murray Co. Census. According to uncle Tom Bolton, Susan died in Ozark County, Evening Shade, Ark. having gone there because her oldest son, Samuel Zachary Dover lived there. She was buried there. Her son, Hardaway Youngblood was b. ca. 1819. Died 1899 buried Mt. Carmel Churchyard. He married Elizabeth Duncan in 1846. According to Alice Youngblood he was in the Civil war. He had 5 sons and 2 daughters.

1. Robert Anderson Youngblood, [married to Mary Palmer Haynie in 1873] born Feb.14,1848, Gwinnett Co. d. 12/28/1928. Age 80.

2.John Youngblood

3. Dave Youngblood

4. Frank Youngblood

5. William Youngblood

6. Catherine

7. a girl ?

Alice Youngblood is a daughter of Robert Anderson Youngblood. The genealogy of Susan's goes on to include reference to Samuel being buried in Murray Co. Ga., and list their 9 children. With Eliza Dover Bolton, b. 7/17/1829 died 5/9/1900 buried Milner, Ga. and the years of the other children's births attributed to the ages given in the census of Gwinnett Co. for 1850. " Samuel Dover resided in Gwinnett County for at least 21 years from 1828 until the 1850's when he moved to Murray County Ga."

Considering that the family of Susan Campbell is unknown, as was the family of Hardaway Youngblood, it is notable to see the names of his children as being common "Dover" names. Afterall, this probably is the family he related to, and it was a common pracitice to name children after family.

Zebulon, GA., Friday, April 10, 1891

Dr. John McDowell, a prominent young physician of Macon died at the home of his mother in Barnesville last Sunday. He was a son of the late Dr. George McDowell, and a brother of P.H.

7 "2nd Cavalry Regiment was organized during May, 1862, at Montgomery, Alabama. Its companies were from the counties of Calhoun, Shelby, Greene, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, Butler, Coosa, Monroe, and Dallas. The regiment operated for a time in Florida, then skirmished in Mississippi under General Ruggles before being assigned to Ferguson's Brigade. Under this command it was active in the Atlanta Campaign, the defense of Savannah, and the campaign of the Carolinas. Later the 2nd Cavalry formed part of President Davis' escort when he moved southward during the last days of the war. It surrendered at Forsyth, Georgia, in May, 1865, with about 450 officers and men. Its commanders were Colonels John N. Carpenter, R.G. Earle, and F.W. Hunter; Lieutenant Colonels James Cunningham, Josiah J. Pegues, and John P. West; and Majors Richard W. Carter and Leroy Napier." Bryars, Benjamin Henry (I0523)
8 "2nd Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Corinth, Mississippi, in April, 1861, with men from Tishomingo, Tippah, Itawamba, and Pontotoc counties. Ordered to Harper's Ferry, Virginia, it was there mustered into Confederate service. During the war it was assigned to General Whiting's, Law's, and J.R. Davis' Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. Only 1 officer and 19 men surrendered. The field officers were Colonels William C. Falkner and John M. Stone; Lieutenant Colonels John A. Blair, Bartley B. Boone, and D.W. Humphreys; and Major John H. Buchanan." Stone, Gov. John Marshall (I28749)
9 "Charles Weatherford was the second and last husband of Sehoy McPherson. They raised four children that I knew. Betsy, the oldest child, married Sam Moniac, and was the mother of Major David Moniac, who was educated at West Point and was killed by the Seminoles in the fall of 1836- he was educated at West Point in consequence of the faithful and disinterested friendship of his father to the whites. Billy was the next oldest, Jack next, and a younger daughter whose name I have forgotten. She married Capt. Shumac, a very intelligent officer of the United States army." Family F1373

11 "Colonel Stone left [the siege of Petersburg] for Mississippi with a small detail to recruit and to return absentees to the regiment. Lieutenant Colonel Blair took command of the regiment.

Stone would not return to Virginia. He made it back as far as Salisbury, North Carolina when Stoneman's Federal cavalry raided the city. Stone organized his recruits and the local self defense forces in its defence but was outnumbered, surrounded and captured." 
Stone, Gov. John Marshall (I28749)
12 "A missus dominicus (plural missi dominici), Latin for 'envoy[s] of the lord [ruler]' or palace inspector, also known in Dutch as Zendgraaf (German: Sendgraf), meaning "sent Graf", was an official commissioned by the Frankish king or Holy Roman Emperor to supervise the administration, mainly of justice, in parts of his dominions too remote for frequent personal visits. As such, the missus performed important intermediary functions between royal and local administrations. There are superficial points of comparison with the original Roman corrector, except that the missus was sent out on a regular basis. Four points made the missi effective as instruments of the centralized monarchy: the personal character of the missus, yearly change, isolation from local interests and the free choice of the king." Azzo, Alberto I Margrave of Milan (I19126)
13 "A charter dated Feb 3, 1247 records a final agreement between 'John Plesseto' [de Plessis] and 'William Mauduyt and Alice his wife', relating to 'premises Warwick ... pertientibus county Warwickshire, where Thomas [de Beaumont, 6th Earl of Warwick], brother of Margaret [de Beaumont], wife of John, whose heir she is' agreeing the succession of the latter if the wife of the former died without heirs." Medieval Lands. Thomas had died the previous June (26 June 1242) without issue. of Warwick, Alice (I12781)
14 "A childhood accident had left him with a deformed nose, squahed flat to his face, but he was tall, athletic and blue-eyed with a bushy beard and fair hair. To his admirers this made him look like a fiece lion. To his enemies he looked 'like a monkey'. Enrique suffered a form of acromegaly or gogantism, which left him with outsized hands and feet along with an abnormally large head and thick facial features. His massive forehead stood above strangely staring eyes and wide, strong cheeks tht flattened out as they descended into a long, unwieldy jaw." Castilla y León, Enrique IV de King of Castile and León (I23215)
15 "A covert marriage must have seemed liked a policy to have very few serious risks and a number of positive advantages: this was a bride who could demonstrate Edward's commitment to evenhanded kingship, but whose family was not so grand or proud as to feel they had anything to gain by wrecking his trust." Family F2561
16 "A day or so after, one of my scouts brought news of eighty or a hundred Indians camped on the east side of the Alabama, near what is now called Dale's Ferry. I took sixty men, intending to bury Jack Evans, and, if practicable, attack the enemy. Crossing the river in two canoes, which I had previously concealed, we spent the night in the canebrake. At daylight I manned each canoe with five picked men, and directed them to move cautiously up the river, while the rest of us followed the trail which ran along the bank. I considered that the canoes would be useful if we had to retreat or cross the river, or to carry our wounded. When we reached Bailey's, whose cabins were on the east, and his corn-crib and field on the westbank, we discovered two Indian canoes, laden with corn, paddling up stream. I ordered Jerry Austill to lay his canoes under the bluff and conceal his men from the Indians until I could get ahead of them. Unfortunately, the path left the river bank on account of swamp and cane-brakes, and so continued two and a half miles before it again approached the river. The Indians had, doubtless, perceived my canoes from the first, and I now saw them moving rapidly up, still far above us. We pushed on at a lively rate, George Foster and myself being a hundred yards in advance of the others. At an abrupt turn of the path we suddenly encountered five warriors. The file-leader leveled his rifle, but, before he could pull trigger, I shot him down. Foster shot the next, and the rest broke into the cane-brake. The leader of the party was Will Milfort, three quarters white, tall, handsome, intelligent, and prepossessing, and a strong attachment existed between us. He camped with me at the great council of Took-a-batcha, and privately informed me when Tecumseh was about to speak. By the influence of Weatherford he joined the hostiles, and was on his first war-path when he met his fate. We recognized each other in a moment; there was a mutual exclamation of surprise- a pang of regret, perhaps- but no time for parley. I dropped a tear over his body, and often bewail the destiny that doomed him to fall by the hand of his best friend. Such are the dreadful necessities of war. Some time after I sought and interred his fleshless bones; they now moulder on the banks of the river he loved so well; and often since, in my solitary bivouac, in the dead of night, have I fancied that I heard his wailing voice in the tops of the aged pines. Even now my heart bleeds for poor Will." Milfort, Will (I6024)
17 "A large number of the following invitations were issued to favored recipients yesterday: Mrs. M. E. Dickinson requests the pleasure of your presence at the wedding reception of her daughter Effie Pauline, and Dr. Henry Jackson Garland, Wednesday evening, December 18th, from half past eight until eleven o'clock, Meriwether Street, Griffin, Georgia."

18 "A little way along Front street was Wall & Company's store, presided over by Mr. Fernando J. Moreno, who was also underwriter's agent. Mr. Moreno was a thorough American, though of foreign descent. Courtly, polite, with distinguished manners, he was to be seen each afternoon taking his constitutional on a pacing pony, out to the bush and South Beach. He was slightly deaf, and carried a silver ear trumpet gracefully suspended from his left arm, which strangers often took for a cornet, and a wag was once known to stop him with the question, "Old man, when are you going to give your concert?" Needless to say the question was not heard, for no man was familiar with Mr. Moreno with impunity. His chief assistant at that time was Mr. William McClintock, afterwards mayor of the city; a large, portly, powerful ex-man-of-war's-man from Philadelphia, who had had among other vicissitudes the experience of going down with the United States steamship Congress when she was sunk by the Merrimac." Moreno, Fernando Joaquin (I5054)
19 "A Michael Stoner seems also to have taken some part in the opening of Tennessee. In 1780, he is said to have discovered Stoner's Lick and Creek in north central Tennessee. This may have been a return to his discovery of 1767." Stoner, George Michael (I26630)
20 "A similar phrase ("juxta usitatam ecclesise Anglican* computationem" ["the use of the Church of England reckoning"]) occurs on the next slab, that of Hugh Poyntz, who died as a young man in March 1604. * * * The three here named, Edward, Hugh, and Robert, were sons of Sir Nicholas Poyntz of Iron Acton, by his second wife, the Lady Margaret Stanley, daughter of Edward, 3rd Earl of Derby." Poyntz of Tockington Park, Hugh (I11200)
21 "A similar phrase ("juxta usitatam ecclesise Anglican* computationem" ["the use of the Church of England reckoning"]) occurs on the next slab, that of Hugh Poyntz, who died as a young man in March 1604. * * * The three here named, Edward, Hugh, and Robert, were sons of Sir Nicholas Poyntz of Iron Acton, by his second wife, the Lady Margaret Stanley, daughter of Edward, 3rd Earl of Derby." Family F1806
22 "Abducted from her tent, browbeaten by her mother Maria Comnena into accepting a dubious annulment, Isabella finally acquiesced and was wed to Conrad. Decades later a papal commission would condemn their marriage as both bigamous and incestuous (because Isabella's sister had once been married to Conrad's brother) but for now the need for strong military leadership overruled the niceties of law."  Family F6024
23 "According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Enguerrand, Marguerite, Marie and Beatrix were born from their father's first marriage and Hugues and Guy from his third (in addition, it lists Flandrine whose parentage is uncertain as shown above). None of the sources...provide sufficient information to determine the marriage from which any of these children were born." Family F5925
24 "According to Jaime de Salazar y Acha, followed by other authors, among them, Gonzalo Martínez Diez, they married in 1100, and with this ceremony their son was legitimized and declared heir of the Kingdoms of León and Castile. Salazar y Acha, Jaime de (1993). "Contribución al reinado de Alfonso VI de Castilla: algunas aclaraciones sobre su política matrimonial". Anales de la Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía, (Madrid: Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía, 1993)(ISSN 1133-1240), II: 323-5; Martínez Díez, Gonzalo, Alfonso VI: Señor del Cid, conquistador de Toledo, (Madrid: Temas de Hoy, S.A., 2003)(ISBN 84-8460-251-6), p. 121; Reilly, Bernard F., The Contest of Christian and Muslim Spain: 1031-1157, (Cambridge, Mass.: Blackwell, 1992)(ISBN 9780631199649), p. 96.

For Salazar y Acha, Zaida and the fourth wife of Alfonso VI, Isabel, are the same person, 'despite of the impotent efforts of later historians to try to prove that she was not the Moor Zaida' and, accordingly, she would also be the mother of Elvira and Sancha Alfónsez.[Salazar y Acha, pp. 323?324]

Another reason the author mentions to support this hypothesis was that shortly after the marriage of the king with Isabel, his son Sancho begins to confirm royal charters and, if Isabel and Zaida were not the same person, the new queen would not have allowed the new protagonism of Sancho in detriment of her possible future sons. Salazar y Acha, Jaime de (2007). "De nuevo sobre la mora Zaida", Hidalguía: La revista de genealogía, nobleza y armas, (Madrid: Asociación de hidalgos de fuero de España, 2007)(ISBN 9788495215291. ISSN 0018-1285), March-April, p. 221.

He also cites a charter from the cathedral of Astorga dated 14 April 1107 where Alfonso VI grants some fueros and acts cum uxore mea Elisabet et filio nostro Sancio (with my wife Isabel and our son Sancho). Salazar y Acha (2007), p. 228 This is the only document where Sancho is referred to as 'our son', since in others he only appears as the king's son even though Queen Isabel also confirms the charters.

Reilly accepts that there were two Isabels: the Moor Zaida (baptized Isabel) and the other Isabel, but argues that to reinforce the position of Sancho Alfónsez, the king annulled his marriage to Isabel in March 1106 and married Zaida. [Reilly (1992), p. 96; Reilly, Bernard F., The Kingdom of León-Castilla under King Alfonso VI, 1065?1109 (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1989)(ISBN 9788487103032). p. 364-5).

The hypothesis that Alfonso VI had married Zaida was rejected by Menéndez Pidal and Lévi-Provençal. [Gambra, Andrés, Alfonso VI: Cancillería, curia e imperio, Vol. I. Estudio (León : Centro de Estudios e Investigación "San Isidoro" : Caja de España de Inversiones : Caja de Ahorros y Monte de Piedad, 1997)(ISBN 8487667287), p. 475.]"

25 "After a trip back to London with his wife in 1654-1655 (leaving their children in Virginia), in 1656 Lee moved his family to Virginia's Northern Neck, the peninsula formed between the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers. Leaving the Paradise tract to overseers, they resettled on a spot acquired from the Wicomico Indians, which consisted of 1,900 acres (8 km2). In 1648 the Virginia General Assembly had created Northumberland County in this area, and in 1653 separated Westmoreland County from Northumberland County. The new plantation was called Dividing Creek, near what is today the town of Kilmarnock in Northumberland County. Later generations of Lees came to call parts of this plantation Cobbs Hall and Ditchley."  Lee, Col. Richard (I27358)
26 "Afterwards, in May, Roger [de Mortimer] also probably attended the marriage of his eldest daughter Margaret with Thomas, the son and heir of Lord Berkeley, which secured an earlier alliance with an important lord of the Welsh Marches. Interestingly Berkeley and his adherent John Maltravers and Thomas Gurney had fallen out with the Earl of Pembroke [Aymer de Valence] at this time, and Berkeley's move towards Roger was a long-term political shift, not a mere interweaving of alliances but a vote of confidence in him as a leader." Family F3100
27 "Alfonso VI's penultimate marriage was to Isabel and 'the cause of controversy during centuries has been whether this Isabel was the same person as Zaida or a different individual'. [Salazar y Acha, Jaime de, "Contribución al reinado de Alfonso VI de Castilla: algunas aclaraciones sobre su política matrimonial". Anales de la Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía (in Spanish) (Madrid: Real Academia Matritense de Heráldica y Genealogía. II: 301?336, 1993), p. 227. ISSN 1133-1240]

Both appear together for the first time on 14 May 1100 although the diploma is considered suspicious, and the second time in that same year at an unspecified date. [Gambra, Andrés, Alfonso VI. Cancillería, curia e imperio (in Spanish). Vol. I. Estudio. (León: Centro de Estudios e Investigación; San Isidoro: Caja España y el Archivo Histórico Diocesano de León, 1997) p. 473. ISBN 8487667287.]

Isabel's last mention in royal diplomas was on 8 and 14 May 1107 and she probably died in the middle of that year.[Gambra, p. 474.] She is, according to Salazar y Acha, Zaida, who after her baptism was called Isabel. If not identical to Zaida, her origin is uncertain. Bishop Pelagius of Oviedo does not refer to her origin. Lucas de Tuy in the 13th century, based on the epitaph of Isabel, makes her daughter of King Louis of France, who at that time would have to be Louis VI although this seems to be chronologically impossible. Reilly considers that she was probably of Burgundian origin. [Reilly, Bernard F., The Contest of Christian and Muslim Spain: 1031-1157. (Cambridge, Mass.: Blackwell, 1992) pp. 322-3] although this does not appear in the documentation."

28 "Alfonso's eccentric will was contested and a conventional political solution found to the succession crisis it provoked. (Put briefly, if not simply: Alfonso's brother, a Benedictine monk, was taken out of holy orders and married to the sister of the Duke of Aquitaine; the resulting daughter was married as an infant to the Count of Barcelona, Ramon Berenguer IV; Alfonso's brother, Ramiro, retired back to the cloister and Ramon Berenguer took control of Aragón, merging the kingdom permanently with his own territories.)" Family F3457
29 "Although Audley was an aging commander and his tactics had been seriously naive, he did not lack personal valor. He fought in the thick of the battle. But in the melee he was sought out by one Sir Roger Kynaston of Hordley, a retainer of the duke of York, who was among Salisbury's knights. In the open field, where the ground sloped gently downward, Audley eventually lost his valiant stand. He was hacked down and killed, and his assistant commander John Sutton, Lord Dudley, was taken prisoner. The loyalists had lost their leader and soon gave up the fight. The battle lasted a total of around four hours, and by the end of it perhaps two thousand men lay dead in the field, their blood seeping into the warm autumn soil." Touchet, James 5th Baron Audley, 2nd Baron Touchet (I12382)
30 "An important road and railway junction, St. Vith was fought over in the 1944 Battle of the Bulge during World War II. The United States Army defended the town against German assault for a few days, delaying the German attack plan, before eventually being forced to retreat. Once it was captured by German forces, the town was bombed by the US Army Air Forces on 25 and 26 December 1944 and by RAF Bomber Command with 300 aircraft on the 26. St. Vith was mostly destroyed during the ground battle and subsequent air attack. American forces retook the town on January 23, 1945."  McGraw, TSGT Thomas Boyd (I26151)
31 "Ann Bayne" is given by secondary sources only. She is identified as Ann in her first husband's will and Ann Williams in her father's will. Thus, aside from being circumstantial, inferring her grandmother's name from this fact is weak (a primary source would be preferred). Owsley, Ann Bayne (I1541)
32 "Anthony Poyntz, third son of Sir Nicholas Poyntz, was admitted to the Inner Temple November 1567. He would seem to have turned out a disreputable character. In 1581 he is described as of Frampton, co. Gloucester, Gent., and received a pardon for divers felonies. He was convicted with others for the crime of having on 1st Nov. 1574 ill-treated and placed in much fear, so that his life was despaired of, on the highway at Frampton Leas, co. Glouc, one John Gurden, and having stolen from him feloniously £100 then on his person of money belonging to a certain John Parsons; also of a similar felony of having stolen from Conan Parsons a like sum of £100 (Pat. Tested at Westminster, 3rd May 1582.)" Poyntz of Frampton, Gloucester, Anthony (I3980)
33 "Approaching Sifilke on 10 June 1190, the emperor impatiently decided to ford the River Saleph ahead of his troops. His horse lost its footing mid-stream, throwing Frederick into the river - on a scorching-hot day the water proved shockingly cold, and unable to swim, the German emperor drowned." Staufen, Friedrich I von Holy Roman Emperor (I12829)
34 "As a Syrian prince, Reynald had a reputation for untamed violence, garnered from his attack on Greek-held Cyprus and his infamous attempts, around 1154, to extort money from the Latin patriarch of Antioch, Aimery of Limoges. The unfortunate prelate was beaten, dragged to the citadel and forced to sit through an entire day beneath the blazing sun, with his bare skin smeared in honey to attract swarms of of worrisome insects.
