MARIA BELL REDDICK
Newspaper obituary, Dec. 21, 1922________
MUCH BELOVED NEGRESS DIES : "AUNT MARIA REDDICK WAS ONCE SERVANT TO JEFF DAVIS.
The passing of Maria Bell Reddick at her home on Columbia avenue on last Friday night removes from Franklin one of her oldest citizens and also a historical character that has been closely connected with prominent and leading events in the south.
"Aunt" Maria died at the ripe old age of 90 years, retaining her mental faculties and her devotion to her friends until the last.
When Col. John McGavock was married to Miss Carrie Winder in Louisiana seventy years ago Col. Winder gave this bright young woman to his daughter for a maid.  She made her home with the McGavocks after that, nursing four generations of the family.
During the war Col. McGavock sent all his slaves except two or three further south to keep them from the influence of the Federal army.  During this period Maria, who was in Montgomery, Ala., was a servant in the family of President Jeff Davis.  While in this household she became a special admirer of Dr. Gentry, of this place who was much in the Davis family.
Little negro blood flowed in her veins; she was half Indian with possibly a strain of French blood, hence the strong clear mentality and combination of characteristics marked and unusual.
Her first husband was Harvey Otey.  The last husband, Bowling Reddick, was a Montgomery negro who came back to Tennessee with her after the war, both going straight to the McGavock home.
This fine old character has hardly an equal left among her race in this town.  She leaves one son, John Watt Reddick, in the L. & N. Railway service.
