Agnes Rust Atkinson

F, b. 14 December 1880
     Agnes Rust Atkinson Agnes and William had one son they named James Shiver Bothwell. William's mother, Sarah Hooks Bothwell, apparently objected to the marriage between Agnes and William, perhaps because Agnes' family was not of the same social class as the Bothwells. During Agnes pregnancy and after the son was born, William's mother persuaded him that the baby was not his, prompting William to write an 'anonymous' letter to the Sumter Republican about the woes of a husband with an unfaithful wife. The contents of the letter described the people involved so accurately that apparently everyone in town knew who had written the letter. After the letter's publication, Agnes' brother Youel wrote a reply to William defending his sister's purity and threatening to kill him if he ever came up to Americus. We have copies of the originals of both of these letters, but not of the versions printed in the paper. Subsequent to this scandal, Agnes and William divorced and Agnes left town, presumably because of the damage to her reputation. In Sarah Bothwell's will she refers to the son of my son William's wife, 'whom I do not believe to be my grandson' and specifically cuts the child out of any inheritance from her family.

Agnes and son John moved from Albany, Georgia, to Apopka, Florida, to meet John Gilbert Pope whom Agnes had known in Albany. Agnes and John were married in Apopka, Florida.

A short time later, Agnes' father, Henry Dewilder ATkinson, died and Agnes's mother, Susan Gertrude Atkinson, moved to Apopka, Florida, and lived with Agnes and John Gilbert Pope and their son James.

James Shiver, who was 5 years of age at the time, was given the name of or called James Shiver Pope.

The family of four, Agnes, John, James and mother-in-law Susan Gertrude moved to Kissimmee.

While in Kissimmee, Florida, Susan Gertrude met and married her second husband William Sigsbee.

Census from Miami, Florida, 1900 indicates that Agnes gave birth to 7 children by John Gilbert Pope and 6 lived. Mr. Pope died in a yellow fever epidemic and the oldest son, called Shiver, supported the family by working at the Miami Depot of the Florida East Coast Railway. Sometime after Mr. Pope's death Agnes told her son Shiver that Mr. Pope had not been his father, and that his real father was William Bothwell. Shiver began using the name of James Shiver Bothwell.

We believe that William is the father of Shiver, even if he (William) does not think so. If it were not true, why would Agnes have upset Shiver, who was perfectly happy believing the Mr. Pope was his father? In addition, Agnes was clearly the only personwho know for certain who Shiver's father was, and she could have named anyone from her past life in Georgia as the father, but she names William Bothwell. Her married name was Bothwell. She was born on 14 December 1880 at Albany, Georgia. She married William Bardin Bothwell, son of William Clements Bothwell and Sarah Hooks, before 1881.
