      Forest Jasper Beverly Sr.

      Forest Jasper Beverly was born November 13, 1892 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia to Martin Columbus Beverly and Mollie (Born a Tatum, who later took her stepfather's name of Barber) Beverly. Forest Jasper Beverly’s paternal grandparents were Forrest Jasper Beverly and Martha E. (Suggs) Beverly , and maternal grandparents were Matilda Tatum Barber and Obediah Barber. Obediah Barber was Forest Jasper Beverly’s grandfather. (All per family info) Forest Jasper Beverly married Margaret Inez Robinson on April 7, 1912 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Margaret Inez (Robinson) Beverly was the daughter of Edward Robinson and Sarah Jane Wildes. Margaret Inez Robinson’s maternal grandparents were John and Sarah Jane (Nunez) Wildes. Maternal great grandparents were Hugh and Sarah Virginia (Carter) Nunez of Appling Co. Ga, then Ware Co. Georgia, and Maximillan and Elizabeth (Wilkinson) Wildes of Tattnall County, Georgia and later Ware County, Georgia. Paternal grandparents were Mark and Sarah (Barber) Robinson.

      Forest Jasper Beverly died September 10, 1981 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. His wife, Margaret Inez Robinson Beverly died July 2, 1973 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. They are buried in the Kettle Creek Cemetery in Waycross, Ware county, Georgia.

      "Jep Beverly", as he was always known by all who knew him, grew to manhood in Ware County, Georgia, where his father, Martin Columbus Beverly was engaged in farming. In the early days of his adult life, while still in his teens, he drove a team of horses hauling Naval Stores and related items.

      He was employed by his wife’s father for a period of time after he was married to Inez (Margaret Inez Robinson) Robinson of Clinch County, Georgia. Later he worked for a period of time as a convict guard. For a brief period of time he operated an overhead crane in the machine shop of the ACL Railroad. Fairly early in his life he turned to the building business for his vocation, becoming a Master Carpenter, and today many of the fine homes and a number of the large commercial buildings bear the mark of his hammer and saw. One of the fine buildings outside Waycross which he constructed is the Post Office in Blackshear, Georgia.

      During the Second World War, he worked on the air field at Douglas, on the construction of the "Ways" for the Brunswick Shipyard and on an air field at Sebring, Florida. At the close of the war, he was back home working on houses and other buildings. He undertook extensive remodeling of Historic Kettle Creek Church along with cemetery improvements and construction of a parsonage, and all as a labor of love.

      At this time in his life he made several basic changes to his own home, remodeling and updating it as he had always hoped to do.

      He was a man who loved life and wanted to live it with his family. The never to be forgotten fishing trips to Harrietts Bluff, the yearly visits to the beach for a week with ALL who would go, and the endless trips to the zoo in Jacksonville to brighten the lives of the children and grandchildren (and when all had grown beyond the zoo age, he rounded up the dogs and carried them) was an indication of the love for his family.

      Time, and the heavy load he carried with so much family responsibility, finally overtook him and in 1960, he retired. But he didn’t really retire. Someone was always calling him for work that had to be done and he would do it. It also got him out of the house and from under the foot of Inez for a spell. He grew fine vegetable gardens and shared the fruit of that labor with people all across the community.

      Inez, the love of his life for 62 years slipped away from him in death in 1973. He was never the same again.

      Later he married Margaret Cosmides and for five years they enjoyed going places together and then in his sleep in his 87th year, he had a stroke. It was severe. After a long stay in the hospital and months of therapy at Baptist Village, he was brought home. A short time later he had surgery and the malignancy guided him once again to Baptist Village.

      It was from this place that he was released from his suffering and confinement by death. At the funeral, his grandsons were pallbearers. He sleeps in the peaceful quiet of the Kettle Creek Cemetery beside Inez and a son that died in infancy.

      Forest Jasper Beverly and Margaret Inez Robinson Beverly had eight children, they are as follows:

      1) James Thomas Beverly born January 17, 1917 in Argyle, Clinch County, Georgia. James married Lollie Mae Joyner on March 4, 1939 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia.

      2) Sarah Beatrice Beverly was born October 27, 1919 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Sarah married Wallace Paul Mincey in 1937.

      3) Mary Alene Beverly was born May 21, 1921 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia Mary married Norman L. Gillis.

      4) Forest Jasper Beverly Jr. was born February 20, 1926 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. "FJ" as he is known married Hazel Wigglesworth August 20, 1947 in Waresboro, Ware County, Georgia.

      5) Virginia Inez Beverly was born November 16, 1928 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Virginia married O.R. (Bob) Roberson.

      6) Betty Jo Beverly was born October 5, 1931 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Betty Jo married Paul Player in 1950, in 1957 married William (Billy) Shaw, and in 1976 married Elton (Buddy) Gibbs.

      7) Robert Wesley Beverly died in infancy.

      8) Ruth Nelline Beverly was born November 21, 1940 in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. Nell as she was known married Joseph Clark.
