ANDREW JACKSON (A. J.) SCRIBNER, youngest son of Edward Scribner and Sarah (Sally) Goodwin, was born 15 Dec 1842 in Shelby Co., IL and died 13 Jan 1908 in Collin Co., TX.

A. J. left his home in IL at age 19 and joined the Confederacy in Fayetteville, AR on 26 Oct 1861. His cousin William Scribner, with whom he had a close relationship, enlisted with him.

A. J. and William Scribner both served as Privates in the 1st Battalion Company D Arkansas Cavalry, CSA, under the command of Major William H. Brook and Col. Ras Stirman.

After the war ended, A. J. did not return home to IL. Instead, he went to TX, presumably following his cousin William Scribner, who had settled there earlier. He eventually settled in NE Collin Co., TX in the pioneer settlement of Stony Point (also known as Stoney Point) where he married Mary Elizabeth Wilkes on 07 Nov 1867.

Mary was born 06 Sep 1850 near Weston and died 22 Jul 1922 in Collin Co., TX. Mary Elizabeth Wilkes was the daughter of pioneer settlers Amos C. Wilkes and Permelia Lucas owned a 215 acre farm in Stony Point.

A. J. and Mary had nine children, five girls and four boys. The Scribners lived very well for the time in a large, two-story homestead, which had belonged to Mary's parents. The family briefly resided in McKinney, TX in the early 1900s so that the younger children could attend public school.

A. J. and Mary were charter members the Stony Point Baptist Church, which was formed in 1878 by area residents.

A. J. died in 1908 and was buried in Stoney Point Cemetery, near the farm. Mary maintained the family farm, with the help of her children and other relatives. Mary died in 1922 and was buried next to her husband in Stoney Point Cemetery, where many Scribner descendants are buried.
