Research interest: Ecological Restoration, Restoration Ecology of Ponderosa Pine Ecosystems, Restoration ecology deals with research and management experimentation to determine ways for safely restoring degraded ecological systems to nearly natural conditions. The goal of this process is to alleviate ecosystem health problems by emulating the structure, function, diversity, and dynamics of the specified ecosystem.

Our research has focused on western long-needled pine ecosystems, of which ponderosa pine is the most extensive type. Ongoing research seeks to determine the range of conditions that existed in the ponderosa pine type before Euro-American settlement. In addition, retrospective ecological analysis serves to determine the recent change in ecological and resource conditions resulting from disruption of natural structures and processes. Experimental research projects are designed to: 1) restore natural conditions on specific sites so that they may serve as reference points for comparison to other land management treatments; 2) to determine the range of ecological structures and processes in restored sites; and 3) to determine practical methods for ecological restoration. In addition to small-plot (0.3 - 5-acre) studies, we are now working on operational ecosystem management experiments on scale of 50 - 600 acres.

Mar: around 1945 at U.S.A. to Kathee 4653. Composer, Conductor, Arranger, Trombonist, Singer. Address, 1939 Valentine's Road, Westbury, Long Island, New York. Studied trombone in Philadelphia suburbs, first job with Isham Jones in 1939, subsequently with Mitchell Ayres and Horace Heidt Band with Frankie Carle (Piano) and Fazola Irving Prestopnik (Clarinet), until 1943, when he joined the Coast Guard. Warren is described as "A brilliant lead trombonist". In Tars & Spars show while in service.

Joined Les Brown after discharge in late 1945, for 5 months working with Steve Madrick, Ted Nash, Eddie Scherr (Sax), Don Jacoby, Jimmy Zito (Trumpet), Geoff Clarkson (Piano) and Doris Day (Vocals) before joining Gene Krupa in 1946. From 1946 to 1956 he was on CBS staff in New York. Led a group called The Commanders 1946-47. Joined the Tommy Dorsey Band in 1950 and assumed leadership in February 1958 after Dorsey's death, taking it on the road and making records on the Decca label, with his wife Kathee Covington, as singer. The band became known under his own name after 1961. They toured England in 1974. Their most well known recording is said to be "The Tipsy Trombone". Dorsey had been Warren's early influence.

Also recorded with studio big bands accompanying Charles Mingus (1971), Randy Weston (1972), Bobby Hacket (1973) and George Benson (1974). He continues to be active as a studio musician and in films. (The Big Bands - George T Simon) (The Encyclopeadia Of Jazz & The Encyclopeadia Of Jazz in the 60s - Leonard Feather) (The Encyclopeadia Of Jazz in the 70s - Leonard Feather/I.Gitter)

Info from website: http://nfo.net/usa/c5.html "As a child, Covington first studied trombone, with a private instructor in a suburb of his hometown. He subsequently studied composition with Danny Hurd at New York University; and voice with Dr. Stetson Humphrey in Hollywood, California. His career began in the late 1930s. In 1939, he played with Isham Jones. He worked with the Horace Heidt orchestra from 1941-'43. In the mid-1940s, he worked with Les Brown and Gene Krupa orchestras before joining CBS's music staff. During World War II, he served in the U.S. Coast Guard, 1943-45, incl. "Tars and Spars" show. From 1946 and 1947, Covington led The Commanders group

In 1950, he first recorded with Tommy Dorsey's band, and in 1958 became the leader after Dorsey died. From 1961 into the '70s, Covington toured with the band (heading it under his name). During the '70s, he was heard on various film soundtracks, and also recorded with 'studio' big bands accompanying such stars as Bobby Hackett, Randy Weston, Charles Mingus, and George Benson.

There is an interesting sidenote to Covington's stay with Heidt. Heidt had gotten the idea to own three places. He actually did buy the 'Casino Gardens', in Santa Monica, California. He also wanted to buy the 'Graystone Manor' in Detroit, and the 'Glen Island Casino', in New Rochelle, NY (then owned by the city). It was Heidt's idea to set up two more bands, - the Frankie Carle Orchestra, the Warren Covington Orchestra and his own Horace Heidt Orchestra. These three bands would rotate, broadcasting from each venue. As a benefit of the broadcasts, the bands could then set up tours. The plan came crashing down when an ASCAP-BMI fight caused a ban on recordings. In November 1945, Covington resumed work as a sideman, with Les Brown, remaining with Brown for five or six months, followed by a brief period with Gene Krupa.

After his service discharge at the end of WWII, Covington became a 'sessions' man in the New York city studios. He spent about 10 years in the studios. In September 1950, he even played in Tommy Dorsey's band on a pair of recording sessions. In 1956-'57, while on the staff at CBS, he began to think about forming his own band. With the help of the Willard Alexander booking agency, he was signed as leader of 'The Commanders', a recording group on the Decca label. Then Tommy Dorsey died. The Dorsey estate contacted the Willard Alexander booking agency, and the Estate and Agency selected Covington as front man for a new Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, In February 1958, Covington and the band hit the road

Covington led the Dorsey band for 3-1/2 years, through September 1961. However, having to play 6-7 nights a week took its toll, and even before his contract was up, he began hoping for a less hectic pace. So, he gave the estate a year's notice, and then continued on as 'Warren Covington and orchestra', doing that ever since.

In 1969, he cut some Dorsey-style recordings of recent pop songs for the 'Reader's Digest'.company A few years later, he applied to the U.S. Patent Office for rights to the names "The Pied Pipers" and "The Clambake 7." Covington used the trademarks in his various tributes to the Tommy Dorsey band, including a 22-day tour to the United Kingdom in 1974, that also featured Dorsey alumni Sy Oliver, Skeets Herfurt, Johnny Mince, and Pee Wee Erwin. The "Tommy Dorsey Orchestra led by Warren Covington" also appeared on a PBS-TV fundraiser, "Big Band Bash," taped in New York City in 1978; and also appeared at one of President Reagan's inaugural balls in Washington, D.C. in January 1985.

During his long career, Covington's musical talent helped the Big Bands of Les Brown, Tommy Dorsey, Gene Krupa, and even the Allman Brothers rock band. He also helped such singers as crooner Perry Como. His talent was also used in the Hollywood studios, including playing on the soundtrack of "The Godfather". "

Personal contribution from daughter-in-law Elizabeth in March 2010 reads "Warren Lewis Covington was my father-in-law, born August 7, 1921 in Philadelphia, he passed away in 1999. Lewis K. Covington (K is for Knox) was my husbands great grandfather. Yesterday I traced Lewis Covington born 1785, Culpeper, Virginia. Married to Sally Ann Beazley born 1814, Culpeper Virginia, married 13 September 1834 in Caroline, Virginia. They had ten children and a son named Lewis Covington born 1844, Culpeper, Va. Lewis served in the America Civil War, Confederacy, in the ranch Light Artillery Battery Virginia from 8 February 1863 to 7 October 1864 He was promoted to Full Corporal on 18 Aug 1864.

My husbands family made it a little easier to follow them from generation to generation as they all carried the name Lewis or Lewis C. Covington. Don's great father was Lewis K. Covington, born May 5, 1888, Philadelphia, Pa, His father was Lewis K Covington born 1858 in Philadelphia, Pa. Lewis K. Covington born 1844 in Culpeper, Va., moved to Philadelphia, Pa.

There is a link out of Virginia with a Lewis Covington going back to England, in the Huntingdon area. I am still working on tracing records to be sure this is correct.

My husband's father was Warren Lewis Covington, who was a famous trombonist worked with Les Brown, Lombardi and eventually took over the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra when Mr. Dorsey died. He went on to do most of the music at the Ed Sullivan Studio, sessions in "The Godfather", "Barbarela", etc., Warren did well with his hit gold record "Tea for Two Cha Cha" in the late fifties. Warren Lewis Covington, unfortunately broke the chain naming his male children Lewis, the oldest Donald Warren Covington (my husband), Dennis, Dave, Cathie, Christopher and Saundra. Warren was married three times, Florence Deans(first three boys) from Philadelphia, Beverly (called her Kathie) (two girls and a boy) and Sylvia, no children with Warren, who is still living in Florida.

You might want to check www.FamilySearch.com, I found allot of information and www.Ancestry.com. You can also look up Warren I. Covington on line and they give you his bio. The problem being there are few items that are incorrect. Warren died in the Tampa area and they do not mention his first wife, Flo or Florence (he called her Terre)"

The Howertons don't have any proof that she was a Howerton but we acknowledge an extremely close friendship between the two men. She may have been a sister, but he was, by the existing records and deeds, a single man as late as 1670.

If she was not a Howerton, the Covington records should reflect that her last name is unknown.

William and Thomas did come to Virginia early, but as indentured servants transported by John and George Mott. This information was compiled by Howerton researcher, Bryan Howerton, whose work in always documented. The data discovered is:

Thomas Howerton was born about 1640 in England, exact location not yet discovered. He came to the Virginia colony about 1663 as he was one of 313 people claimed as "headrights" by the brothers Mott on 17 October, 1670. The Motts were awarded a Patent for 15,564 acres of land on waters draining into the Rappahannock River as compensation for the indentured people whom they had transported to the colony. William Covington, who became a partner of Thomas Howerton, was included in the group of people for whose transport the Motts received the land patent.

So, in or around 1663, the Covington ancestor and the Howerton ancestor arrived together, as indentured men. We don't know the name of the wife of Thomas Howerton, but we know the first name of the wife of William Covington- it was Dorothy, but she and Wiliam were contemporaries of Thomas Howerton, not younger!

By 1670, close to seven years after arrival, William and Dorothy Covington and Thomas 'Haywarton' paid 3000 pounds of tobacco to a William Richards for 300 acres on Dragon Swamp.

We have never established any proof that Dorothy was a Howerton. What is the Covington proof of her surname? Thomas may not have even been married in 1670, as William and Dorothy sign as husband and wife, and Thomas Howerton signs alone, the deed dated 10 October, 1670.
The land on Dragon Swamp they bought as partners, is a part, evidently of the 15,564 acres that the Motts were awarded.

On 3 April, 1683, William Covington and Thomas Howerton were dividing the Dragon Swamp land. The abstract I have seen on this Agreement to divide omits the name of Dorothy.
On 4 April, 1683, "Agreement between Howerton and Covington to divide land from Mr. Mott. Howerton to have land on the south side and Covington to have land on the north side of Dragon Swamp.

On 17 April, 1683; Thomas Howerton witnessed a deed from William Covington to his brothers."

The early Old Rappahannock and Essex records are the ones abstracted for all the data above.

Can anyone add to any of this?" (abruce@televar.com)

Perhaps our ancestors came to America simply to improve their lot in life and that they certainly did. The period of indentured service required in payment for transport to the colonies varied from time to time. They were fortunate to have arrived at a time when that period was at the lowest term found during our research of records. After serving his obligated period of indentured service, Thomas Howerton settled in (Old) Rappahannock County, Virginia, on land that straddles the line between present-day Essex and King & Queen Counties, Virginia. The present village of Howertons, in Essex County, Virginia probably lies on land originally owned by him.

The date of the first acquisition of land in Virginia by Thomas Howerton has not been determined; however, in 1670 he and William Covington sold 300 acres of land they jointly held in (Old) Rappahannock County. The deed refers to both Howerton and Covington as "Planters"; which would indicate they were established holders and farmers. The ancient Indian trail, Assnamonnock Footpath, crossed their land and much of their attention was directed to dealing with the Indians. The Indians occupied a large village nearby until at least 1722. They raised subsistence crops and were self supporting. Their principal money crop was tobacco. Their casks of tobacco was rolled down to the Rappahannock River for shipment. The port conveniently located there was regularly visited by ocean going ships. It was called New Plymouth, which name was changed to Hobbs His Hole in 1680 and was subsequently named Tappahannock.

Thomas Howerton and William Covington apparently entered into a compatible partnership soon after Thomas' arrival in America. On 20 May 1674 they purchased 365 additional acres of land near Great Dragon Swamp. The low area in which they had settled was unhealthy, raw, primitive, and required drainage and clearing. Their partnership continued at least until April 1683, when they divided their land on both sides and through the swamp. In the years that followed there was a long association and many marriages between descendants of the two men. Thomas owned considerable land in his own right which fell into Essex and King & Queen Counties upon the discontinuation of (Old) Rappahannock County in 1692. The part of Great Dragon Swamp in which the land was located is today identified as Dragon Run. This is a beautiful area which has been extensively cultivated in the past, but much of which is now covered by second-growth timber.

He was sued for debt in 1741 and again in 1746.

After his first wife died, he returned to Essex County to marry a widow and then returned to Amelia. In 1772 he sold his land, left his son William in charge of collecting and paying outstanding debts and moved to Edgefield County SC where he obtained land on Sweetwater Creek.

He became a Captain in the SC Militia and when the Revolution started their unit was engaged in the siege of Augusta. This battle didn't involve any British troops, but was strickly between Loyalists and Patriots. William was assigned to General Pickens to care for the sick. He was able to use his own supplies to do this since he was less than 10 miles from home. After the war he put in a claim for about 60 pounds in personal expenses and was apparaently paid in full. His will is in the state archives in Columbia SC (info from Bryan Covington 2002)

In Jan 1768 bought 150 acres on Baggetts Branch of Cartledges Creek in then Anson County (Richmond in 1779), was relieved of poll tax in 1787 "by reason of his being over sixty years of age" (so born about 1726), and still a landowner on Baggetts Branch at his death in 1794.

A great deal of confusion exists regarding 4 William Covington's who were around at the same time. (refs 11185, 11251, 12447 & 19491).

Maryland Marriages 1634-1777 by Robert Barnes gives this marriage as William "Covinton" in 1742 in Queen Anne's County. No month or day are included, and the compiler makes no mention of these omissions though other marriages prior to 1742 include this information.

As yet, there is no known reference for the marriage of this William to Rachel, so there is no proof of her maiden name as Thomas. Her first name Rachel is known by William's will. It is even possible that he never married a Rachel & the one mentioned in his will is his step-mother!!

William patented 140 acres as " Covington's Necessity " in Tully's Neck on the west side of Tuckahoo Creek in Queen Anne's Co., Md. In 1754, Wm. Bought " Rachel's Desire ", 37 acres, from Henry and Rachel Covington (his father and step-mother). He traded these tracts to Nathaniel Covington for 91 acres of " Hinsely's Plains ", also in Queen Anne's. This he later sold to Mathew & Tilghman in Nov 1756.

His wife, Sarah, joined in these conveyances. MD patent books TI #1, p. 494, BT & BY, p. 583, Queen Anne's Co., MD. Deed books RT #D, pp. 183, 289, RT #E, p. 86. First Covington in Anson Co., NC. Had a land grant deeded 25 Jan 1768. For 20 pounds, Wm. Bought from John Long and Mary Blacksmith, 150 acres on Baggots Branch of Cartiledge Creek, NE side of Pee Dee River, as granted to Abraham Baggot on 5 Dec 1760.

Can be found in the Anson Co. Deed Book H - I, p. 364. This land is now in Richmond Co. Wm was excused from paying Poll Tax in July Court 1788 ( Richmond Co. ) because he was over 60 years old ( court minutes p. 146 ). Wm. Is reported to be a revolutionary patriot for furnishing supplies to the revolutionary army. Buried at Cartiledge Creek Baptist Church.

Some confusion exists as to his children, their mothers & dates/locations of birth.

[This William was the son of William Covington III and Ann Coleman. Many researchers record his wife as one Frances Kavanaugh - though documentation for this seems lacking, various family records record her name as such. Her parentage is undocumented - although many record her as a daughter of Philemon Kavanaugh Sr. or Jr. - Frances Kavanaugh Covington seems to have died before this will was written]. There are other researchers who suggest that only Robert was son of Mary Frances Kavanaugh & that all the other children were from William's marriage to Amy St John - awaiting confirmation.

In the name of God, Amen, I William Covington of Culpeper County, being in a weak and low state of health, but through the mercy of God is restored my proper senses, doth make this my last will and testament and revoking all other wills heretofore made by me.

I give and bequeath to my daughter Ellinor Hensley a certain tract or parcel of land adjoining John Strother and the North side of the South Fork of the Rush River being part of one hundred acres I bought of the said John Strother, beginning at a white oak standing on the river bank near a large rock that runs into the river thru a northerly course to a long line of marked trees to John Strothers line to the river and up the river to the beginning supposed to be about fifty acres which said land I give to my daughter Ellinor and her heirs forever be the same more or less.

Item - my will is that all my land lying above the mouth of a small branch that comes round my upper meadow empties into the river near opposite to the upper end of Francis Covingtons meadow setting of from a small hickory thence running northerly to a line of marked trees beginning at two red oaks and a white oak, thence running near the course of the old field westerly to a white oak and hickory sapling, thence a north course to John Strother's line on my back line, thence along the said line to my corner and my brother Richard Covington, thence down a branch that is a line or boundary between myself and Richard Covington to the River, thence down the river to the beginning, supposed to be about one hundred and fifty acres, be the same more or less, which said land I leave to be equally divided between my three youngest daughters: Grizzel Cooper, Elizabeth Covington, and Lucy Covington, to them and their heirs forever.

Item - I give all the rest of my land except the acres I reserve for a burial ground to my son Robert Covington, to him and his heirs forever.

Item - I give my negro man, Simon, to my son Robert Covington, to him and his heirs forever.

Item - My will is that at my death, all my personal estate shall be equally divided between my daughter Elizabeth Covington and Lucy Covington.

Item - I appoint my son Robert Covington, Robert Hensley, and William Covington to be my executors to this my last will and testament, in witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this eleventh day of February, One Thousand Seven Hundred and Eighty Three.

W. Covington (L.S.), Signed, sealed, published, pronounced and declared by the said William Covington as his last will and testament in the presence of us: Francis Covington, Ezekiel Wright, John Wright, Aggness Hensley
WILLIAM COVINGTON. Ref: 10775. Born: during 1725 at Virginia VA. Father: not known, Father Ref: 0. Mother: not known, Mother Ref: 0. Died: during 1817 at Franklin Co GA aged 92. Mar: around 1747 at Amelia Co VA to Walker, Mary 17219. Most research suggests his wife's name was Mary although views are split as to whether she was a Walker or a Morgan. I've gone for Walker as this was the given middle name to their first born son.

According to the DePriest Family Journal there is said to be in existence a book in the reserved section of the Shelby NC public library, Barar's or Beard's Revolutionary War, which contained information on William and his activities in the Revolution.

There is a least one researcher who feels his name is Thomas. The name of William as the father of Thomas, Josiah, and William has come down through both Thomas' and William's descendants.

William's family lived along the Dan River in Virginia near Danville. This on the NC-VA border with present day Rockingham County on the NC side. A number of Covington families lived in this region on both sides of the border. Some were descendants of Nehemiah Covington of MD while others appear to descend from William Covington of Essex Co., VA. As the given names were similar in both families, at this time there is no evidence to suggest from which line William is descended. Just before or after the Revolution many of William's children, and possibly William himself, moved to Rutherford Co., NC where his daughter Ursula already lived with her husband John Walker. William himself moved on to GA where he died in 1817.

Indeed there is some confusion as to who William's sons were. At least five sons have been attributed to him: Thomas, John, Josiah, William and Richard. According to A. B. C. DePriest "William. Covington and three brothers came to North Carolina prior to the Revolutionary War from near Danville, VA. One brother settled near Rockingham, NC, one came to Cleveland County, and the other went on to TN or KY. William Covington had several sisters. One, named Urusula married John Walker; another sister married a Moore in Rutherford County in 1800 and they went to Georgia (actually western NC on the GA border, LW). There were several other sisters." [As told by A. B. C. DePriest to Virginia DePriest in December 1964.]

E-mail received from Stephen Blum in June 2009 as follows:
"Just thought you might be interested to know that I have a long case clock (presumably) made by William. The clock was bought by my father, shortly after the War (and in case you were wondering why the clock is now in Las Vegas, we moved out here some 20 years ago). He wrote to the Wolverton UDC at the time in an attempt to research Wm Covington and received a reply indicating that the Registrar showed William's wife to be Mary, not Elizabeth.

The geographical references are also a little awry, although clearly within a certain radius. However, I would have thought that some 300 years ago, William and his family would have been unlikely to have moved around the country in the manner that these conflicting pieces of information would suggest.

The letter has been kept with the clock case ever since it's receipt" (sblum@escalante.com)

Rockingham Market Newspaper, 21 Jul 1927, Everett Sketches (an article on Covington history) refers to "Sugar Ben" and "Uncle Billy" as brothers. However according to Covington Lores and Legends they were in fact, 1st cousins. "Uncle Billy" being Willam, the 6th child of John Covington and Hannah Dockery while "Sugar Ben" was Benjamin, the 1st son of Banjamin Covington and Francis Mooreman. The fathers, John (b 1752) and Benjamin (b 1757) were the sons of William Covington (b 1730).

It is complicated to confirm actual facts as another source confirms he is son of same John but with his second wife Nancy Love (Wall) and that his middle name is Wall. I have therefore treated them as 2 separate individuals, be it with the same father. See also William Wall Covington (11438). I would be grateful for some clarification There is also possible confusion with William (11251) who is also listed as marrying a Rachel Thomas.

Mar: around 1815 at Abbeville Co SC to Martin, Mildred Tutt 13935. Provision was made in his father's will for him and his brother Richard to complete their education before the estate was divided. He enlisted in the army during the war of 1812. South Carolina raised 2 Regiments during the war named Youngblood's and Austin's. Austin's had a 1st Lt named Richard Covington, and 3 Privates named Edmund, Richard & William Covington.

There may have been another family of Covingtons living in that part of the state, possibly related to the Edmund Covington (6176) of Lunenburg Co VA. William and Richard later moved from Edgefield to Abbeville County and obtained land on the Rocky River in the upper part of the county. William remained there until 1836 when he moved to somewhere near Columbus MS on Wolfe Rd. The family farmed a large amount of land with many slaves.

William had 2 slave boys of whom he was fond and named them Little Aaron & Big Aaron. He wrote his will in 1855. By that time all his children had died except Ben and James. By the time he died about 1863, James had died and Ben was fighting in the war and would not return, so any estate he left after the war probably went to the widows of these 2 sons. His will was probated in 1864 and is on file in the Court House in Columbus. He is probably buried in the family plot in Columbus MS (unmarked). A billfold that he once owned still exists.

William Covington led a flight of 51 P-38 Lightnings of the 82nd F.G. to Gibraltar. The flight was attacked by German fighters of 14/KG40 and the mentioned Ref. relates further on in the text , the results of the encounter with the German fighters: an unnamed pilot from 14 Staffel shot down the P-38 flown by Lt.Earl Green of the 95th F.S. Lt.Green survived and managed to evade to Spain. Lt Broadhead of the 96th F.S. was forced back to St.Eval, whilst Cap.Buddy Strozier also of the 96th F.S. force-landed in Portugal. Finally, Lt.T.S.Miller of the 97th F.S. crash landed in Spain…"

It seems that this P-38 landed in Portugal remained in good shape, as the author differentiates between forced landing and crash landing, being the former the case of the Portuguese incident. !

CONCORD, N.H. (Sep 6, 1995 - 13:06 EDT) -- Speedway Motorsports Inc., which operates two NASCAR auto speedways and is building a third, has appointed a vice president for finance and strategic planning.

Info from Bill & Shelley Hartwell - dncgbear@comcast.net - e-mail as follows: "My mother in law, Violet P. Covington, is his widow, she was not married to him very long when he passed away. She now has dementia and has been placed in a home specializing in dementia. In cleaning out her trailer I found an old travel trunk with Mr. Covington's military medals, a few military papers, a picture (very poor quality) of Mr. Covington, my mother in law and someone else, can't tell who it is. I also have a name of Harriet Covington on a paper, no clue as to who Harriet is. I have military medals, old bible (wood front and back), passport, some military papers and a couple of pictures of him.

I do not know if he was married before he married Violet, or if he had children, he was about 15 years older than her. They were married only a few months and did not have any children, (she is the type of person that if he had children from a previous marriage she would not have anything to do with them.)

I'm hoping you can help me locate someone in his family
that would like to have his things. If not I will try to
donate them to a WWI/WWII Museum."

Extract from Westward TV piece on a pop group of the 60s - The Rustiks, who appeared in a number of shows including supporting The Beatles.

"William Covington (Drums) Born 23 August 1947 in Plymouth. Has been playing drums for semi-professional groups for two years, working as a warehouseman during the daytime. Says he is inspired by Buddy Rich, Max Roach and Chico Hamilton. Height: 5' 8'' Weight: 10st. 8lbs. Hair: fair. Eyes: blue. Likes: Music, fish and chips, leather and suede, the Spencer-Davis group, Dionne Warwick and The Hollies." - see website at www.covington.supanet.com for more details.

The Rustiks had major exposure with appearances on The Beatles tour which started at Bradford on the 9th October, and with Gerry and The Pacemakers in 'Gerry's Christmas Cracker,' which opened at Liverpool on 23rd December. The support acts on the Beatles tour which began in October 1964 were American singer, Mary Wells, Liverpool stablemates Tommy Quickly, (The Rustiks became Quickly's backing group in January - February 1965), Michael Haslam, The Rustiks and Sounds Incorporated. The show was compered by Bob Bain.

The tour dates were as follows: 9th October Bradford, Gaumont; 10th October Leicester, De Montford Hall; 13th October, Wigan, ABC; 14th October Ardwick, Apollo; 15th October Stockton, Globe; 16th October Hull, ABC; 19th October Edinburgh, ABC; 20th October Dundee, Caird Hall; 21st October Glasgow, Odeon; 22nd October Leeds, Odeon; 23rd October London, Kilburn, Gaumont State; 24th October Walthamstow, Granada; 25th October Brighton, Hippodrome; 28th October Exeter, ABC; 29th October Plymouth, ABC; 1st November Finsbury Park, Astoria; 2nd November Belfast, Ritz; 4th November Luton,Ritz;5th November Nottingham, Odeon; 6th November Southampton, Gaumont; 7th November Cardiff, Capital; 8th November Liverpool, Empire; 9th November Sheffield, City Hall; 10th November Bristol, Colston Hall.

In March 1965 The Rustiks spent 10 days at the festival of Valencia in Spain. In June they they returned they returned to Spain playing at US Air Bases. While in Madrid they also appeared on The Beatles concert at The Plaza de Toros. Then they played Majorca and Gilbraltar, following which the boys spent two months touring towns and villages in Southern Italy. On their return to England they were booked to play a three month engagement at the Savoy Hotel, London.

After the Rustiks he joined The Staggerlees. - a west country group who had acquired quite a following on the Northern club circuit. The lineup was Tony Grigg, guitar and vocals, Lance Fortune, guitar and vocals and Bill Covington, Drums and vocals.Bill says " I was 19 when I joined the group in August 1966. I had left The Rustiks and was searching around for a full time role with a professional band when a pal of mine, Dave Cawse, suggested that I should join them. Join them I did and left home to travel the road with The Staggerlees".

In June 1967 a newspaper in Sheffield gave the following story about The Staggerlees, 'Postbag breaks into world of entertainment with news of…..3 West Boys on Success Trail. I have, I feel, some exciting news regarding the Staggerlees group. Originally they came from Redruth and built up a huge following in the Cornwall and Plymouth area, but came to Sheffield to try their luck on the Northern Club scene. This has resulted in them being signed for a five month season at The Prince of Wales Theatre, London, in a show which stars Frankie Howerd and Cilla Black. The boys-Tony Grigg, Lance Fortune and Bill Covington-are at present on tour with Englebert Humperdinck and Joan Regan. I feel this news will be of interest to hundreds of people in your area who have been unable to see much of the group over the last two or three years.' (Westerner - Sheffield).

Lance Fortune had previous chart success as a solo act in his own right. In 1960, Lance had released two singles, 'Be Mine, '(PYE 7N.15240), and 'This Love I Have For You,' (PYE 7N.15260). Both singles achieved chart success. The Sheffield Evening Post in June 1967 contained a bigger piece about the success The Staggerlees were having. The piece was entitled 'On Stage: The Staggerlees.' 'They were very broke, three years ago, when they climbed into their van and drove up from Cornwall with object of breaking into the South Yorkshire Clubland scene. Eventually The Staggerlees 'cracked' the clubland curtain in the Sheffield area, and since meeting their present manager Bill Turner about 18 months ago, they have become firm favourites in the Doncaster area clubs too.

"After leaving The StaggerLees, I studied at Nottingham University, then went to Warwick University, before returning to playing drums full time."

Bill is now percussionist at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, and plays for Contemporary Dance Companies including the Phoenix Dance Company, The Ballet Rambert and The British Ballet Organisation.
The Rustiks had two singles released on Decca - What a memory can do (Sept. '64) and Not the loving kind (Jan '65).
Bill has also created a website for the MacVicar family name which also shows photos of his Pop World days http://website.lineone.net/~macvicar .

Article on page 1, column 2, of the June 27, 1863 issue of the Richmond Sentinel newspaper, Richmond, Virginia.

"When Gen. Jackson was wounded, his cap and the gloves which he wore, were left on the field where his injuries were first examined. They were there found by a soldier of company G, 38th North Carolina regiment, Pender’s brigade. His name is Wm. D. H. Covington, and he is now in Chimborazo Hospital. Mr. Covington carefully preserved the interesting articles, and though offered large sums for them by those who wished to possess these momentoes of our great General, he was fixed in his purpose of delivering them to his family. Through the aid of his Surgeon, Dr. Bowen, he has found the opportunity of sending the gloves. The cap is with Gen. Pender.

We have seen the gloves. “T. J. Jackson, Virginia,” is printed neatly on the wrist of each. The course of the fatal ball that wounded the wearer, is seen on both. – The right-hand glove is cut by the ball just about the base of the thumb, but so near the edge as apparently just to have grazed the flesh. The left-hand glove was perforated on the wrist, near the top of the glove. The stain of the blood which flowed from the wound is still upon the glove. The ball, after entering the wrist, ran up the arm, rendering necessary its amputation above the elbow.

Mr. Covington's nice feelings and sense of honor in reference to these relics are much to be commended. Such a soldier is worthy to have such a General as Jackson was."

Moved to California from Calhoun Co MS.

Info that follows was submitted by Tom Powers a great great grandson of William Dockery.

The following was writen by William Dockery Covington sometime after he was 80 yars old. This note was found with this granddaughter Cleo's things after she died in the year 2000.: "I was home on furlough in January 1865 and met my future wife at a party. Miss Mary Louisa Nunn. She was born in Ruthsboro Mississippi October 30, 1847. She consented to be my wife in 1866. She was a kind, loving wife and an affectionate mother. An angel on earth who always saw the bright side of life. She died in Redlands California August 1904 and was buried in Redlands cemetary."

I found the following on the internet. A letter written in 1903 by W.D. Covington to a friend of his who still lived in Mississippi.

The Calhoun Monitor, November 5, 1903
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We present below in its entirety a letter from Billie D. Covington, of Redlands, California. He was born and raised in Calhoun. When quite young he shouldered a musket and followed the company commanded by Capt. E. R. Enochs, through the civil war. He was never known to shirk duty and was very popular with his comrades. Soon after the war he emigrated with his fathers family to Redlands, where he has resided ever since. Knowing that his old soldier friends, and many who were not with him in the war will enjoy reading this letter we give it space. -

Redlands, Cal., Oct. 24, '03

"Dear old Comrade, and old boys of Co. "F" where'er you roam:

Your boyish faces are fresh in memories dreams. We are brothers and I love you still. Boys, our ranks grow rapidly thinner as the years roll by and our battles of life are almost won, and may the Master say "Well done."

Do you all read the "Confederate Veteran?" In it I sometimes find some of our old war songs that we used to sing together. Our company could sing as well as fight, you know. Now if I try some of those old songs my voice chokes and my eyes grow dim with tears in sad sweet memories of those who marched with me.

Say, boys, let the home stretch be as pure, as true and patriotic as in life's morning when we marched to music of fife and drum. Oh, time how fleet.

But yesterday I saw the camp fires surrounded by the boyish faces, but my white locks and the rugged path behind me say it has been years.

Mr. James Cook arrived here on the 2nd, Inst., from his visit to Calhoun, and I wish to say to the friends who sent me greetings through him, God bless them. I appreciate them all.

Mr. Cook visited my old home, west of Pittsboro, and hunting grounds of the long ago. At my request, he went to old Frank's grave; Co. "F" will remember the old darky that followed me through the war. He was a negro 'tis true but he was possessed of a true and noble nature and I reverence his memory. But enough of this.

The Monitor is a regular visitor and I enjoy the many items. Although I have been away from Calhoun nearly thirty-seven years, it has a warm place in my heart. You have a good county and many good people, from my point of view, though your people should grow a greater variety of products

That is a good stock country, as most of the grasses will grow well there. Alfalfa would grow there almost through the entire winter; could be pastured and then cut for hay in the spring.

I have often thought of the many fine streams there that could so easily be utilized for irrigating pastures and crops. Irrigation is all the go out here and lands that can be irrigated are out of reach in prices. Some other time I will write more on this subject, also, of our orange crop and of our little city, Redlands. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

P. H. Covington and family are well. B. P. Davis another old "Free Stater" here is o.k. He is an old bachelor still, but says he is going to Calhoun next year to look him up a better half.

Now, I should like to make some inquiries concerning our old boys but fear my letter is already too long. Will some of them write me? There is Reuben Countiss, Ben Landreth, "Old Bragg" {Jack Maxey,} Mose White, John and Irvin Bryant, Jerry Shepherd, Cap Bagwell, Joe Burns, "Old Doc" {Henry McGuire,} John McGarity, Jim Stewart, John Hastings and Bill Barton. I can't name them all here, but the whole company dwells in my memory and I would like to know of them all.

Well, my crippled hand and the length of this letter admonish me to stop. Meet me beyond the river to "Rest in the Shade."

W. D. Covington, 9th Grand St. Redlands, Cal.

The Bee (Danville, Virginia) 19 January 1924 (Page 3) "William Green Covington, for the past three years a resident of Danville, passed away at the home of his son, C. D. Covington, 915 Green street, last night, after a decline in health lasting for five years or more. Mr. Covington had been failing steadily, after being an invalid for the last two years, and his death was not unanticipated.

Mr. Covington was born in Halifax county, being a son of the late Edward Green Covington and Mrs. Annie Roberts Covington. His early life was spent in Halifax, but in young manhood he moved to Caswell county and for more than thirty-five years was engaged in farming in the vicinity of Yanceyville. During his life there he established many warm friendships and he was generally esteemed and respected. His church membership was first with the Providence Baptist church between Danville and Yanceyville, but in later years he transferred his membership to Yanceyville, maintaining, however a keen interest in the Providence church.

He retired from active pursuits when ill health became apparent and three years ago he came to this city to live with his children. Forty-seven years ago he was married to Miss Montgomery. Together they reared a large family. Mr. Covington leaves, besides his widow, ten children as follows:

W. E. Covington and B. R. Covington of Danville; C. C. Covington, of Blanche, N. C.; C. D. Covington, of Danville; H. S. Covington, of Washington; R. L. Covington, of Bluefield, West Va.; Mrs. E. P. Snead, Blanche, N. C.; Mrs. E. W. Oakley, Danville; Mrs. W. R. Bradley,of Groveland, Fla.; and Mrs. S. L. Hodnett, of Groveland. (note these names do not tie up with other records of his offspring or the 1900 Census for Yanceyville, Caswell NC))

The funeral will be held at 12:30 o'clock from the home on Green street, Sunday afternoon, by Rev. C. J. Parker. The remains will be taken to near Yanceyville for interment."

Mar: 16 Apr 1795 at Rutherford Co NC to McIntyre, Rhoda 10801. 2nd Mar: Mar 1841 at Rutherford Co NC to Green, Mary Polly Rincie 10811. The DeProiest Family Journal informs us:

He married twice. He married first Rhoda McIntyre about 1795. Rhoda was born about 1771. Rhoda died 1 March 1841. They had no children. While Rhoda's lineage is not know, she is probably a descendent of Alexander McEntire, possibly the daughter of Aaron McEntire and a first wife and hence a cousin of William's second wife. While married to Rhoda, William witnessed legal documents for Alexander's sons and was the executor of Aaron's estate.

He married second Mary Rincie Green in March of 1841. Polly was born in Rutherford Co., NC 21 November 1811. She was the daughter of James L. Green and Sarah Moss. Polly died 29 November 1902 in Cleveland Co., NC, at 91 years of age.

William and Polly were married two or three weeks after William's first wife Rhoda died. When asked why they married so quickly, Polly is said to have responded that she had to marry him because people where already carrying off all his belongings! William became a father for the first time at 66. He was 80 when his youngest child was born.

In 1797 William purchased land on the east side of Brushy Creek of the First Broad River. In the ensuing years his brothers or nephews Thomas and John bought land nearby.

The red headed William was a surveyor and very civilly involved. In 1841, he played an important role in the formation of Cleveland County from Lincoln and Rutherford Counties. In 1843, he was instrumental in laying out the town of Shelby, the county seat. William served with Isaac Irvine, George Cabaniss, Samuel Bailey, Yancey Reisendine and Thomas Roberts from Rutherford County and John Neil, James S. Oates, John Roberts, Robert Falls, Joshua Beam, and William Graham of Lincoln County to form the new county. After the formation of the county, William also served on the first Board of County Commissioners.

William, Rhoda and Polly are buried together between Shelby and Polkville in the Zion Baptist Church Cemetery. The verse on William's tombstone reads

He was useful in his neighborhood
To wife and children kind and good
Was useful in the church also
But now his work is done below.

Mar: Jul-Sep 1951 at Cheadle to Stoddard, Sheila M 4698. Also known as Jack. Lived at 6 Ridgeway, Northampton NN3 3AN, tel 01604-405898. in 1972, still there in 1994. The following article appeared in the Northampton Chronicle & Echo on 5th February 1987 by Clare Dean under the headline "School chief to quit, saddened by budget cuts": Assistant county education officer Jack Coventon is quitting - "saddened" by central Government's squeeze on cash to local authorities.

"We've got to the situation where central government is asking for more and more things to be done and increasingly we haven't the money or man or woman power to do it," he said. Mr Coventon, who has given his life to education was due to retire next year - but has now decided to leave in April. And the 63 year old father-of-three said: "Parents and the public are naturally asking for an enormous amount from schools, but because of the economic situation of the country and the constraints which central government exercises, local authorities are being squeezed. They are piggies in the middle and something has to give. I'm coming to the end of my run and I am wondering whether education will remain in local government."

A teacher for 10 years, Mr Coventon, of Ridgeway, Weston Flavell, moved into administration 40 years ago, working in Birmingham and Coventry before taking over as education officer for Northampton in 1964. With local government re-organisation in 1974 and the transfer of responsibility of education from Northampton Borough Council to Northamptonshire County Council, he took up the post of assistant education officer. Mr Coventon, who has had two heart valve replacement operations looks after more than 100 county schools, working with heads and governors.

"One of the things that has been occuring is that heads of all types of schools are being put under tremendous strains and pressures and I wonder whether the education authority and Department of Education and Science is expecting too much of them. I think the pace of change expected from the education system is excessive. We are being asked to do so many things which are very desirable but it is very hard to make the quite exceptional progress on all fronts. I am saddened by the situation we are in but we have some good men and women in the administration.

We have had examples of the central government squeeze in Northamptonshire. A million pounds was taken out of the budget which was for staffing teachers and non teaching staff. There is insufficient money available to maintain schools as they should be, so we have leaking roofs and bad heating systems. The amount of money that Northamptonshire is allowed to borrow - about ú1.5 million - for some of the big building projects we have in the southern expansion area, is insufficient."

Mr. Coventon, who has sat on the executive of the National Union of Teachers and been chairman of the county's branch of the local government union NALGO, says he believes strongly in local government. He stood as a parliamentary candidate for Birmingham and Mid Buckinghamshire, but gave up the idea of a career in the Commons when he moved into county council administration.

And as president of the Cambridge Union Debating Society in 1946 he got the rules changed for the first time in more than 100 years to allow women to take part in debates. "I have enjoyed my time with the county council but I think it is a good time for new people to do some of the work." said Mr Coventon, who added he was aiming to watch cricket after he leaves.
WILLIAM JACK COVINGTON. Ref: 6002. Born: 22 May 1825 at Alabama AL. Father: Thomas C, Father Ref: 6000. Mother: Deaton, Elizabeth, Mother Ref: 6001. Died: during 1893 at U.S.A. aged 68. Mar: before 1853 at Alabama AL to Daniels, Lucinda Rebecca 6003. Rode with Forrest in war between the state to the last Battle of Selma, Alabama

By the end of the US Civil War almost all of the confederate arms and munitions were either manufactured in or distributed from Selma. The town was centrally located, had rail connections and access to river navigation. There were approximately 10,000 civilians employed in manufacturing.
Even though the town was well fortified the Confederate Army was widely scattered. There was a four mile breastwork around the town that terminated at the river on both ends while fortifications on the north were aided by a large swamp. Defending the garrison was an almost defeated and undermanned Confederate army commanded by Generals Forrest, Armstrong, Roddy and Adams. By this time the attitude among the Confederate Generals was that the south was already defeated and any further resistance would only result in more unnecessary casualties. Never the less it was decided that Selma would be defended.

It was important for the union army to capture Selma and cut off the supply line. General Sherman had previously made an attempt but was turned back at Meridian. In the winter of 1865 General Grant selected Major General James H. Wilson to lead an attack with three well equipped divisions of Cavalry consisting of nearly 1500 well trained men. The battle began around noon on April 2, 1865 and lasted well into the night. Though most of the officers and men escaped there were over 2,000 men taken prisoner. For the next three days was burning and pillaging was the order

WILLIAM JACOB COVINGTON. Ref: 11420. Born: 1 Jul 1838 at Spartanburg Co SC. Father: not known, Father Ref: 0. Mother: not known, Mother Ref: 0. Died: 24 Jan 1910 at Memphis TN aged 71. Pvt. William Jacob Covington was the first district Court Clerk of the Camp County, Texas. A year following the American Civil War, Covington moved to Texas, and there in 1876, he was elected to serve as the first district court clerk of the newly formed Camp County, Texas.

He was born in a two-story chestnut log home built by his relatives in 1799. Private (Pvt.) Covington fought in eight major Civil War battles. Among these were the battle of Harpers Ferry, Antietam, battle of Fredericksburg, battle of Chancellorsville, battle of Gettysburg and battle of Williamsport also known as Falling Waters.

After surviving the battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, he was captured at Falling Waters, Maryland on July 14, 1863 during Lee's retreat from Baltimore, Maryland. From Baltimore he was sent to Point Lookout POW camp.

Pvt. Covington was among the 975 repatriated soldiers who traveled the New York exchange steamer to City Point, VA, after being formally exchanged on March 19, 1863. A few months later he rejoined his 18th North Carolina unit. During the Battle of Jerusalem Plank Road, he was wounded and re-captured. His leg was amputated at City Point and again at Campbell Gen. Hospital in DC. He was sent to two different hospitals in Washington, DC (where the Mall is now located by the Smithsonian Institution).

Signing his parole in July 18, 1865, he was released and with one leg and a pair of crutches he made his way "walking" back to Spartenburg Dist. South Carolina. Before arriving at home he met his older brother who had been shot through the neck and captured late in the war. The two arrived home together, both had been long given up for dead.

After the harvesting of crops in the early fall of 1870, the Covington, Weaver and McIntyre families traveled by covered wagons from Rutherford Co., NC to Upshur Co., Texas, arriving in late 1870. In 1874, Camp County, Texas was formed out of Upshur Co., Texas and Covington was elected as the first district/county court clerk of the newly created Camp County. The positions for district and county clerks were a consolidated position in Texas until the end of the reconstruction period in 1876.

Pvt. Covington was buried at the St. John's Episcopal Church Cemetery adjacent to the Memphis Museum, Central Ave., Memphis, TN. His place of burial was designated with an official historical plaque from the State of Texas Historical Survey Committee on October 20, 1970. (jayc_76@hotmail.com)

Owned 650 acres of as fine land as is. He operated his own gin and commissary. He grew the finest crops. He had a private school for his children. The lane leading up to his home was, and is, lined with cedars on each side. He was troubled with agents stopping his negro slaves from running the gin or ploughing, so he nailed up a board on the left cedar at the entrance to his avenue, with these words: "Private burying ground for all agents," and signed his name. That stopped the agents for a while, but one day up drove a man who said he was an agent and wanted to see him on business. He said, "Did you not see the sign at the front of the avenue, He said, "I have, that is why I am here. I am a tombstone agent."

WILLIAM JOEL COVINGTON. Ref: 14347. Born: 8 Nov 1977 at Rockingham NC. Father: Gene, Father Ref: 14349. Mother: Gates, Deboroh, Mother Ref: 14350. Mar: around 2000 at U.S.A to Crystal 14351. Known as Bucky, he was born in Rockingham, North Carolina, to Mr. Gene Covington and Deborah Gates on November 8, 1977 - along with his identical twin brother, Robert David "Rocky" Covington. He worked at Covington's Body Shop in Hamlet (910) 582-1768 584 Mill Rd, Hamlet, NC 28345. Their biological parents have divorced and remarried; their stepparents are Tracey Covington and Alan Gates. The Gates reside in Wagram.

Bucky is the nickname he also shares with his grandfather. He graduated in the class of 1996 from Richmond Senior High School. Bucky and Rocky are musicians; the latter being the former lead singer of the North Carolina band Swamp Cat. In 1998 when the Covington twins were 20 years old, they were in a minor automobile mishap. Bucky allegedly assumed to be Rocky. They were processed for deceiving the authorities. The plaintiff failed to verify the right person since the twins were identical.

Before the American Idol tour, the twins painted cars at Covington's Body Shop in Hamlet (910) 582-1768 584 Mill Rd, Hamlet. In 2006, Bucky was married to Crystal for seven years (however, on February 13, 2007, Crystal announced that she will file for divorce). After Idol, Bucky wrote in USA Today that he bought a house in Franklin, Tennessee near Nashville. Rocky and his wife Terra also moved into the same house in January. Rocky also joined as the drummer in Bucky's band.

At the age of 18, Covington taught himself how to play the guitar and began performing at clubs. He is also a guitarist, bassist, drummer and songwriter. Over the years, Covington has expanded his talents, both country and rock. After some time, he elected to perform both original and cover material in a cross-genre vein.

American Idol
In the 2005-06 season, the Covington twins auditioned for American Idol in Greensboro, NC individually. Of the two, Bucky advanced to the final twelve. On March 22, Bucky remained in the bottom three, along with Lisa Tucker and Kevin Covais. On April 12 when Covington was in the bottom three with Ace Young and Elliott Yamin, the votes went to the latter two.

In the Top 8 results show of Season six of American Idol, He appeared in one of the front rows. Since being on Idol he has had his teeth capped.

Debut album: Bucky Covington
In November and December of 2006, Bucky Covington performed on the GAC Country Music Christmas tour, making him the 1st Idol from the 5th season to be part of a major non-American Idol concert tour.

Covington negotiated with Buena Vista Music Group's country label, Lyric Street Records. His debut single, "A Different World," was released to country radio on January 16, 2007 - coinciding with the premiere of American Idol (Season 6). Its initial debut on radio was on Sirius Satellite Radio's New Country channel in late December 2006.

His debut album, Bucky Covington, was released on April 17, 2007, to positive reviews. It debuted on the Billboard 200 at #4 selling 61,000 copies. It also debuted at #1 on the Top Country Albums chart, making the album the best opening week for a debut album by a male on the chart since Billy Ray Cyrus' 1992 debut with Some Gave All. Thanks to his exposure on "American Idol", Covington's debut surpassed the previous record held by Jason Michael Carroll's Waitin' in the Country. The single "Empty Handed" will appear in NASCAR 08 as part of the in-game soundtrack.

Controversy
"Empty Handed" deals majorly with drugs, suicide, and religion, that on NASCAR 08 most of the second verse has words cut out. Words include "Amphetemines", "Surgery", "Drugs", "Devil", and "Purging", and even Jesus Christ's name is cut out of the song.

The following report appears in a publication entitled 32 Co Pilots by Charles Bastien: "12.55 hours (J A Hey Casualty Report): B-24) 44-110153 flown by crew #802 is hit by FW 190s and ME 109s in a frontal attack & blows up. The 5 men in the nose, Pilot Lloyd H Herbert, Co-Pilot William J Covington, Navigator Harold M Bachman, Bombardier Timothy M tarpey & Radio Operator Laurence E Nursall disappear completely and are listed on the Wall of The Missing in the Netherlands American Cemetery. The tail section comes down 1 km south of Erichshagen, Germany where 5 burned bodies are recovered by the Germans. They were buried in the Jewish Cemetery of Hoya/Weser and later re-buried in the Ardennes American Cemetery."

Article below appears on Arlington War Memorial Website.

When young Enrico Schwartz, a businessman originally from the old East Germany, was asked in the mid 1990s by an American colleague to place a wreath in the Netherlands American Cemetery (Margraten) at its Wall of the Missing, he became intrigued at the notion of an air crew shot down over land but somehow never found. His curiosity and good spiritual motivation, along with an amazing amount of persistence and luck, allowed stunning closure, 58 years later, for the families of Crew #802of the 858th BS of the ill-fated original 492nd Bomb Group.

Enrico and his partner Swetlana Reimer founded the Missing Allied Air Crew Research Team, and to date, through diligence and adversity, have discovered the remains of two different crews from the 492nd. The positively identified remains of the Lloyd Herbert crew were laid to rest in two shared caskets on November 18, 2002, at Arlington National Cemetery, with full military honors, following a service in the Old Post Chapel of adjoining US Army Fort Myer. (Remains of the other crew, that of Lieutenat Dave McMurray, are in the U.S. Army Mortuary Affairs' identification process, and will likely have similar ceremonial closure in the next year or so. Also of the 858th, they went down on the July 7, 1944, in the vicinity of Westeregeln, Germany.)

All of the families of the Herbert crew were represented at the funeral home visitation (Sunday, November 17th), the funeral and the burial. While some of the family survivors have been in contact in the recent years since the initial discovery of the remains, most of the 100 relatives who gathered had never heard of the other families, none had met. The Army, to which branch of service all of these heroes belonged when the were KIA on May 19th, 1944, provided great logistical, spiritual and cer emonial support, while a handful of interested friends in the 492nd Bomb Group Association, the 2nd Air Division Association, and MAACRT were resources for quiet support and historical information at this unusual and very emotionally laden reunion.

Most of the family members were unaware that active associations had sprung up among surviving veterans of the lethal air war over Europe some 60 years ago, and few knew that their fallen relatives were in the vanguard of the singularly horrific losses of the group that had the highest sustained three month loss record for the Eighth. The Army sponsored transportation to Washington for three from each family and accommodated them at a hotel in Arlington, which became the informal meeting ground starting on the afternoon of Saturday the 16th.

No one knew what to expect under the circumstances, but a palpable sense of family arose over the weekend, warm in proportion to the artifice of the historical fact that united them, deep in proportion to the the sacrifice they endured.

On Sunday afternoon, 492nd BG Association leader Bill Beasley headed an informal ceremony to bring the relatives together and present MAACRT with a memento of appreciation. The plaque beneath the pewter B-24 bore this Old Testament passage (rendered in German for Enrico and Swetlana, and symbolic of healing peace): ?...and the young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.? [Isaiah 40, v. 30-31]

At the visitation on Sunday evening, Kathy Nursall Jensen spoke extemporaneously about her very real relationship with the father she never knew. A young Master Sergeant humbly welcomed the families with the simple observation,
from his experience in these matters, that 58 years would disappear in a heartbeat at graveside the next day. The collected mourners warmly acknowledged the woman from Mortuary Affairs who had shepherded the DNA identification process, and Enrico and Swetlana.

The funeral and horse-drawn caisson through the cemetery, on a glorious crisp fall day, indeed brought the older generation back, and made time stand still for the rest. All four siblings of one of the gunners were present, and one of the sisters remembered receiving 'the telegram' at age 16 as if it had been yesterday.

One could not look at the Honor Guard and Marching Band personnel and not think of their youth, their availability to make the supreme sacrifice today, or imagine, as we heard three volleys of seven shots, that they were as keenly conscious of the felt presence of pilot Lloyd Herbert, co-pilot William Covington, bombardier Harold Bachman, navigator Timothy Tarpey, engineer Joseph Powell, radio operator Lawrence Nursall, and gunners Marshal Johnson, Vincent Kalata, and Louis Brooks.

WILLIAM LITTLE COVINGTON. Ref: 5749. Born: 5 May 1802 at Richmond Co NC. Father: William Wall, Father Ref: 5745. Mother: Covington, Mary Smith, Mother Ref: 11334. Died: 20 Aug 1864 at North Carolina NC aged 62. Mar: around 1828 at North Carolina NC to Thomas, Cecelia Stuart 5759. Another source suggests that he may have had a first wife named Francis Dockery Thomas. (D E Covington 1991). According to 1840-1860 census they lived in the Black Jack Distroict of Richmond Co. He was a farmer having Real Estate of 3,000 and a personal estate of 10,000 (WD Bostick Aug 2001)

The family of William and Celia Covington are listed in the 1850 census as living in the Black Jack District of Richmond Co., NC (#943):
William Covington, 48m (b abt 1802), farmer, NC
Celia Covington, 32f (b. abt 1818), NC (transcriber’s error?)
Edwin Covington, 20m (b. abt 1830), farmer, NC
Presley Covington, 19m (b. abt 1831), farmer, NC
Mary Covington, 17f (b. abt 1833), NC
John Covington, 10m (b. abt 1840), NC
Thomas Covington, 6m (b. abt 1844), NC
William Covington, 1m (b. abt 1849), NC

The family of William and Celia Covington are listed in the 1860 census as living in the Black Jack District of Richmond Co., NC. (p. 734, line 37; Household #502):

COVINGTON, William L.; age 58 (b abt 1802); farmer; real estate 3,000; personal estate 10,000.
COVINGTON, Celia; age 32 (b abt 1828); domestic.
COVINGTON, Thos. B., age 15 (b. abt 1845).
COVINGTON, William, age 11 (b abt 1849).
BOSTICK, Mary A., age 27 (b. abt 1833); domestic.
BOSTICK, Wm, age 5 (b. abt 1855).

In this pre-war era, they are relatively prosperous; a net worth of $13,000 in 1860 would be equivalent to abt $280,000 in the year 2001.

In 1857, W.L. Covington prepared his will (Richmond Co., NC, Will Book Vol. 4, p. 186), leaving extensive property to his wife for her use during her lifetime. However, after William’s death in 1864, Sherman and the U.S. Army passed through the county on the “March to the Sea.” Much of the property that was to go to William’s widow was destroyed by U.S. troops; the Confederate bonds and certificates were now worthless; the Negroes were emancipated. After the war, the children of William L. Covington pooled their own inheritance to provide Celia the means to maintain a small farm.

From M. Bridges (2001), Estate Records 1772-1933 Richmond County, North Carolina, Book I, p. 287: “An agreement entered into by and between the heirs of W. L. Covington, dec’d for the benefit of our Mother. The consideration being that much of the property that was given to her by the will of our father was destroyed by the Army in 1865. Now each of us agrees among ourselves to give to our mother, without sale or division, each and al of our parts or interest in the household and kitchen furniture and such farming tools as we may judge necessary for her to carry on a small farm all of which the will was ordered to be sold and equity divided among his children, all for her use and benefit so long as she may live.

Then all that remains must be sold and divided among the heirs. We also instruct the executors to the will of our father to act in accordance with the agreement set forth in this article and do hereby relieve them of the sale or division of the property herein mentioned. In witness whereof we do hereunto set our hands and seals this July 1870. (signed) E. P. Covington, T. B. Covington, M. C. Ellerbe and wife N. W. Ellerbe, M. A. Bostick, W. L. Covington and J. W.

Died: 18 May 1979 at Palmer AK aged 75. Mar: 3 Dec 1924 at Canyon TX to Dowell, Eunice Eveline 10576. He was known as Jack. How this came to be is interesting. When he was about to be born, another lady in the area was also expecting. An old mule-skinner said there would be a boy and a girl born, and they would be called Jack and Jenny. Grandmother said , "No way!" the other lady had a girl and named her Jenny. Grandmother named him William Starling and said, "Let's see them get Jack out of that". He was called Jack all of his life.

He wanted to go to Alaska back in the '20s and '30s, but the depression and then six children wouldn't let him. I (Albin) graduated high school in 1951 and went into the Navy in 1952. That left only Tom and Marie at home. Tom was a senior and Marie a junior. In Sept. 1952, Dad quit his job as Bridge Inspector for the Pecos Division of the AT&SFRY at Clovis, NM and went to Anchorage, AK and went to work for the Alaska RR as a section foreman. (info from Albin Jack)

After several years he left the Alaska RR and went to work for the White Pass and Yukon RR at Skagway, AK. He worked as section foreman, pumper, and B&B foreman. They retired and moved up to Tom's homestead at Willow, AK. They later moved to a Pioneer home in Palmer , AK where he died of colon cancer. (info from Albin and Fran Covington)
