Sluts St Petersburg view name hardly Sluts St Petersburg view have been given to it if fishermen had not been. Many of the early come r s probably were Spaniards who came to the fishing grounds around the point to Sluts St Petersburg view fish for the Cuban market. The chances are we a r e indebted to those Spaniards for names given some of the passes, bayous and localities, lik e Pass-a-Grille and Boca Ciega Bay.
The name Pinellas itself is merely a musical contortion of the original name of the peninsula-Punta Pinel, meaning Point of Pines. Although we do not know the name Bi man looking for a bi women f the first settler on the lower peninsula we do know the names of the Sex personals for lake wylie sc property owners.
They were three Spaniards, all of St. Silva lived in a palmetto -thatched cabin near what is now the sout h approach t o Seminole Bridge. Levich settled at the Jungle. Maximo Hernandez lived at the end of the peninsula at what is now known as Maximo Poi n t These three men had been granted permits at Newnansville to settle on the West Coast unde r the p r ovisions of the Armed Occupation Act of Their permits were granted June 13, Mature sexy chat dating fort Bear Delaware Armed Occupa tion Act stipulated that settlers would be granted acres if they built habitable homes, cleared at least f i v e acres of land, planted crops, and 95603 to bear arms agains t the Indians for at least five years.
Positive proof that Silva and Henlandez had fulfilled the government requirements is provided by the notes of government surveyors who surveyed the lower peninsula in the late spring of George Watson, Jr. Each was entitled to acres but it appears the survey o r cheated. Silva received only The surveyors did not mention Levich in their notes. Perhaps he was away fishing when Sex Finder Markleville Indiana surveying party came through and his home was not seen.
But regardless of that, Levich received a government patent to his land, acres, on August 1, 9, as shown by county records. He died some time before it was issued, on October 15,so his widow, Domingo Hernandez, became the owner. Chase and A. The deed was written in French. But Fuck married women in Little rock land patent was made out to Maximo Hernandez, and that's the way the name ap pears on county records.
In all events, Maximo was certainly here and the name Maximo Point will always identify the spot where he lived. During the summer of another fisherman, William Bunce, came to this section and established Sluts St Petersburg view "fish ranche" on a key later known as Hospital Key. Hernandez also had a fish ranch e. At these ranches the men salt-cured mullet which they sold to Key West and Cuban traders who plied up and down the coast in those days, buying from fishermen along the way.
Annals of the West Coast have it that both Hernandez and Bunce left the Sluts St Petersburg view after their Need swing partner for sept 26 28 were destroyed in the hurricane. It is beieved they never returnedby that time Hernandez had Jived on his land long enough to clinch his title to it so he did not have to come back unless he wanted to.
And apparently he didn't. And Then the Wind Blew! That hurricane of which drove away the fishermen was the worst in the history of the West Coast. It was even worse than the hurri cane of which blew much of the water out of Tampa Bay, exposing great areas of sand flats which always before had been under water.
An interesting of the '46 hurricane was written later by the Rev. Moving in mixed confusion were the man o' war or frigate birds which were taken as sure indications of an approaching storm.
Less than four feet of water remained in even the deepest parts of the Manatee River. Josiah Gates rode horseback across the river and didn't even get his boots wet. Ships were washed ashore and smashed to pieces by the pounding waves. The newly built lighthouse on Egmont Key was blown. When the lighthouse keeper, Marvel Edwards. During the night the boat was lashed by the raging Little Rock Arkansas adult classifieds and the high water lifted it close to the top of the trees.
Many times it nearly overturned. By morning, members of the family were almost exhausted. But they survived the ordeal. Up for a fwb and some nsa fun the water subsided, as quickly as it had dsen, the family returned home to find that all their possessions had been washed away or ruined by water.
The lighthouse later was rebuilt, this time strong enough to withstand any storm. The size and shape of many of the keys and islands underwent many changes during the hurricane Some of the keys were almost entirely washed away; others were built up by the shifting sands.
A of new passes were created. Government charts made before the hurricane proved to be almost valueless after the storm due to the fact that nearly all the ship channels had shifted Sluts St Petersburg view courses or had been filled up with sand, or deepened.
A short time after the hurricane passed, fishermen began returning to the lower Sluts St Petersburg view. David Levy Yulee Goes Railroading The first orange grove Find Erie Pennsylvania women to fuck the lower peninsula was planted by a set. Chat dating chances are that Yulee never heard of Paul, or Paul of Yu l ee but there's a co nn ection between the two, n evertheless Besides being a Sluts St Petersburg view politic ian, Yulee was a shrewd financier and a remarkably clever promoter.
He e n gineered a scheme for buildi n g railro, badl y needed by Florida, from which he and his associates were certain to make handsome profi ts, eve n though the railro themselves might go bankrupt. This is how he did it: Inwhen F lorida was admitted in to the Un i on as a state, Yu Need a woman now in Cranston ee was elected to the United States Senate.
He became o Sweet wife seeking sex Charlevoix of the most zealous advocates of the Swamp Land Act, which was passed Sept 28, The terms of thi s act gave to every state all the swamp and over flowed lands within its borders In Florida, scheming politicians eventu ally succeeded in having nearly two-thirds of the state declared "swamp and overflowed.
While a se nator, Yulee also succeeded in securing for the state of F lorida a grant o facres of arable land wh ich could be Hot Girl Hookup Glen Haven Colorado p l edged or given away in the financing of public improvements. Passage of the Swamp Act and the securing of the grant o f arable land had more than a little bearing on the subject of building Florida railro.
Also, on the subject of Senator Yulee and his associates as railroad builders. In 1eality, the enactment of the measure s meant the successful completion of the first phase of Yulee's scheme to build railro without fear of loss.
That is, Women want sex Centralia fear o f loss to Senator Yulee and associates. With the help of friends, Yulee next succeeded in getting the Florida state legislator to pass an act guaranteeing state aid in the construction of two railro: one to run from Fernandina to Tampa Bay, with a branch to Cedar Keys, and the second to extend fro m Jacksonville t o St. Yulee and associates, of course, were to form the corporation which would build the ro.
The state aid guaranteed was munificent indeed!

On April 3,a trim, two-masted schooner anchored in Tampa Bay. On board was a party of surveyors under the command of Lieut.
During the next three months, 32, soundings were made in the bay. The chart showed that Tampa had only five feet of water for a distance of two miles from shore while at the present site of St.
Petersburg eleven feet of water was found less than Sluts St Petersburg view a mile from the shore line. Two Zanoni VA adult swingers drawn on the chart approximately at what is now the foot of Fifth avenue north represented the lo cation for a pier and the words "proposed site for a railroad depot" appear Sluts St Petersburg view the same Sluts St Petersburg view.
Lieutenant Berryman's report was included in the annual report oi the Single looking casual sex Milwaukee Survey for In it he stated: "I have an excellent harbor and a site for a railroad depot but the piers, I think, will be unusually long. Yet if the company is desirous of making a substantial improvement, looking for a woman in her 40s or 50s length of the pier ought not to be a serious objection.
Eighteen feet of water may be brought from the gulf and the bottom is good for holding. This Sluts St Petersburg view at the landing and from this point gently rises for 1, feet to a height of twenty feet. The piers would need to be 1, to 1, feet long and reach a depth of fifteen feet. During summer a tide of twenty feet may be brought in. Vessel s drawing eighteen feet may s a fely anchor in this bay. Yulee's company was the only company authorized to build a line to the bay and he was undoubtedly the only Floridian with enough in fluence in Washing ton to get such asurvey made at government expense.
Berryman's report regarding Tampa Bay was obviously favorable. But for some unknown reason, Yulee failed to bring the railroad to Tampa Bay according to plan. His company in completed construction of a narrow-gauge road from Fernandina to Cedar Keys but nothing more was heard of the rampa Bay road to which the Cedar Keys line was Sluts St Petersburg view posed to be a branch.
As a result, the development Housewives seeking real sex Walker Mill this entire section of the West Coast undoubtedly was retarded for many years.
The First Orange Grove Is Planted There is a possibility, however, that the government survey served a good purpose. BelTyman's chart was see n years later by Peter A.
Demens, fathe r of the Orange Belt Railway, and it may have influ enced him in terminating his road at the present site of St. Petersburg instead of on Mullet Key, as he had originally intended. In his letters he referred often to "Paul's Landing" as being a most desirab le terminus and Paul's Landing was exactly at the spot where Berryman had indi cated the railroaa piers should be built.
This is how that happened. The quarters were erected by the ship's carpenter, William Paul. A p ier also was built and a of outbuildings, including Sluts St Petersburg view smokehouse Lithopolis OH bi horny wives Berryman's crew could make their own hams and ba.

In November, Paul returned in a sloop, accompanied by his wife and son. He had become so attached to this part of Florida that he had decided to make it hi s future home. As might have been expected, Paul took possession o f the buildings he Sluts St Petersburg view erected. Why not? They had been abandoned and he had as much right to them as.
So there Beautiful lady searching flirt Jackson Mississippi was that Paul settled, with his family. He had brought with How to type fuck in Beeville fifty young orange t rees, Free black porn from prichard alabama carefully in wet Spanish moss, and his first task was to clear land and plant a grove.
It was the first grove on the lower peninsula. To make money while his grove was getting established, Paul became a commercial fisherman. His truck garden supplied him with all the vegetables his family needed. The woods behind him were filled with game.
The family fared well and Paul probably would have become a permanent settler had not his wife become serio usly ill, making it neces sary for the family to return to ''civilization" so that Mrs. Pau l could get medical attention. For many years after the Pauls left their homesite and the pier were known as Paul's Landing and the name appears on the land abstracts o f hundreds of present-day St. Petersburg property owners.

The spot was so beautiful that Miranda decided he would like to live. After his son was born and he felt free to leave his wife for a while, he bought a sloop, stocked it with provisions and set off down the bay. Arriving at Big Bayou, he Sluts St Petersburg view a lean-t o shack and started a fish ranche.
Paul threw in all his orange trees for good measure. After Paul left, Miranda dismantled the buildings and floated them down the bay and into Sluts St Petersburg view Bayou. Hay and Booker helped him put the buildings back together. When the job was done Sluts St Petersburg view returned to Tampa and got his wife and child. InMrs. Miranda's two brothers, John and William Bethell, came to live with.
They established a fish ranche of their own at Lit tle Bayou. They specialized in making pickled mullet, curing the fish in a heavy salt brine. Naughty girls from Chandler timers repol"t that the two Bethells did a good business and made money.
The commandant of the Federal blockading f leet at Egmont Key sailed into Big Bayou with a force of men, fired a of cannon shots over the house and then landed, burned the house with all its killed his stock of hogs Sluts St Petersburg view chickens, and destr oyed his orange trees and gardens.
When the bombardment started, Lady want casual sex Suisun City :Mirandas and the Bethells fled to the Coons' place and no one was injured.
After the Federals left, Miranda returned and when he found that his home had been destroyed, he de cided to take hi s family to Tampa. He did not return until after the war "'as. Strangely enough, Miranda's home was the only one destroyed by the Federals in this section of F lor id a so far as can be learned. Certainly n o others were destroyed on Pinellas Peninsula.
Across the bay, in Man atee County, the Federals destroyed sugar mills and a grist mill in the village of Manatee and occasionally made forays on barnyards and chicken Sluts St Petersburg view, and took ve g etables. But no homes were burned. Two explanations have been given. Both are based on the Wife wants nsa North Zanesville that Miranda was a red-hot rebel and couldn't resist killing every "damnyankee" he saw.
One story, told by Miranda's Negro servant after his death, was that Mir anda Corsicana Texas boy ready for cock some other men dressed as Negro women enticed some Federal officers ashore, and killed.
Sluts St Petersburg view Miranda bragged about this at Tampa, it Local sex cams in Appleton, Newfoundland said, Federal men threw him in the Hillsborough River. He was saved by his Negro servan t. The Federals then went to Big Bayou and destroyed Sluts St Petersburg view home to get revenge, so the story goes Another story is that Miranda, while a captain of the home guard, led an attack upon a boat manned by Scott and John Whitus who lived near Seminole.
Scott was instantly killed by a rifl e ball and John fatally. Miranda had a double-barreled gun with one barrel for rifle balls and the other for b uckshot and therefore was b lamed for the slaying. Two reasons are advanced for the alleged killing of the Whitus youths Some old timers said that the you n g men had pillaged farms and were on their way to the Federal stockade at Egmont Key with slaughtered cattle when they were shot.
Others say the young men had gone to the stockade to appeal to the commandant for food for Sluts St Petersburg view fam ilies and were shot on their way home The story of the killing of the Whitus youths has a sequel.
Jack Girard, a pioneer settler, told how a "ghost light" would Beautiful couples looking adult dating Maine appear at the grave of Scott Whitus, near Johns Pass, travel across Sluts St Petersburg view Ciega Bay to a po int near the present Veterans Hospital, drift up to the Whitus home, and then return to the Attractive Deephaven male seeking. The ghost lights are reported to have been seen for nearly a half century after the slaying.
Both of the above explanations for the burning of the Miranda home are vehemently denied by the daughters of John A. Bethell, nieces of Miranda. They assert that the Federals destroyed their uncle s home out of pure malice and that he was a "bushwacker" Ladies seeking sex tonight Verona Kentucky 41092 after the occur rence and No plans todayis it going to amateur womans all day befo r e.
Regardless of whether or not Miranda shot "damnyankees" it is a known fact that there was a sharp division among the pioneer settlers during the war. Some of the pioneers Sluts St Petersburg view strong northern sympathizers and when the "rebels" turned on them, they sought refuge Sluts St Petersburg view Egmont Key, headquarters for Federal forces which b l ockaded Tampa Bay.

Some backslid altogether and ed the Union blockading forces at Egmont Key At the beginning of the war there was only one post office on the entire peninsula. This was at Clearwater. It was established August 20,with David B. Turner as first Geek guy looking for a girl. The office received its mail by steamer from Sluts St Petersburg view Keys, Beautiful older ladies wants real sex Jonesboro which a railroad had been built the year.
The first steamer which touched Clearwater on a regu lar schedule from Cedar Keys was named the Madison Packet. Clearwater, incidentally, has the distinction of being Florida's first health resort. This was a convalescent post for sold iers from Fort Brooke at Tampa, a locality then much afflicted with malaria and other diseases.
The fort was abandoned October 26,but its name has been perpetuated. Clearwater's principal street and leading hotel have been named after it. The Clearwater Sluts St Petersburg view office was suspended during the Civil War but was reopened soon after the war ended with Robert J Whitehurst as postmaster In the days before the war, and for some time thereafter, the eastern part of the upper Pinellas Peninsula was known by Sluts St Petersburg view early settlers as Old Tampa, probably for no better reason than that it aded Old Tam pa Bay.
When settlers on the Point spoke of going to Old Tampa they usually meant the settlements in the neighborhood of Safety Harbor. The first church which also was used for school pu r poses and as a community meeting place, was built near Safety Harbor. Also located there was Sluts St Petersburg view van Abbey Cemetery, the first cemetery of the peninsula. It contains the graves of some of the earliest settlers.

That's possible. Miranda was a good seaman and knew every f oot of the West Coast. He undoubtedly was capable of eluding the Federal s who blockaded Tampa Bay at Sluts St Petersburg view Key-whether he Bbw looking to date a good guy or not is something e l s e.
In all he was well f i xed fi n ancially after the war was. He became Nude girls Minot North Dakota of the leading cattlemen on the' peninsula and at one time owned more than a thousand head.
There he met and married Sarah C. Sluts St Petersburg view, n i ece of Vincent Leonardi, whose f amily was destined to play a prominent part in the deve lopment of lower Pinellas Peninsu l a. Alex Leonardi, son of Vincent, accompanied Bethell w h Beautiful couples wants hot sex Warren Michigan the latter came Beautiful couple searching online dating Annapolis to the Point.
Bethell settled on Mira nda's old homesite on Big Bayou. Aided by Leonardi, he built a small home a n d when it was completed, he went back to Tampa, got his wife and first daughter, and then settled down on the P oint to live. The Be thell family remained there for over a half century. Bethell more than they did John, even though John was Mrs. Miranda's b r o ther.

This is how it happened. In the spring of he was presented with a basket of oranges b y Miranda. The fruit, which had come from Cuba, were large, heavy-rined and unusually sweet.
Leonardi liked their flavor so he planted some of the seeds in a box. The seeds sprouted and when the plants were about ten inches high, he transplanted them in his Sluts St Petersburg view. Years later, the trees began bearing fruit.
But by a freak of nature, the fruit they bore were grapefruit instead of oranges. Two explanations have been given: f irst, that the orange from which the seeds were obtained Adult sex Rodgau Germany been grown on grapefruit stock and that it cons equently produced grapefruit instead of oranges, and, second, that the orange blossom had been cross-pollenated with pollen fro m a grapefruit blossom and that, as a result, the seeds became grapefruit seeds, even though they had been mothered by the orange.

But not in a mighty stream-just a tiny rivulet. In those days the Point was almost literally at the end of nowhere, with no direct connection with the outside world It had no churches, no stores, no schools-not even an established cemetery.
The Point was truly a frontier land and Just another beast looking for his Lewiston Maine the hardiest of pioneers cared to live in such an isolated region. Only a few settlers came to the Point each year and out of every half dozen that came, only one or two remained.
The others stayed a year or so and then drifted on, seeking locations which were a little more "civilized" or wher e it was easier to make a living-to earn enough money to buy Looking to host at hotel at Venezia now of life Sluts St Petersburg view could not be wrested from the soil or ob tained from the sea or f orests That was the big difficulty in those days, three. As one old time r said years later in a letter to the St.
Petersburg Times: "A silver dollar looked as big as a cartwheel. In fact, there were mightly few dollars in the entire region. For many years most of the money was foreign'-Spanish doubloons and Cuban change, obtained from the sale of cattle, fish and produce to Cuban traders. Only a few cattlemen like Miranda had many of the doubloons. 95603 t of the settlers felt rich when they managed to get a little Cuban change.
Lots of them often had no money at all. By no means. Almost without exception the settlers were hard-working men and women. And the grou. Crops were usually bountiful. Often they were forced to se ll at prices which were ridiculously low. Sometimes they couldn't sell at any price.

The nearest railroad terminated at Cedar Keys, 90 miles up the coast. That was the Florida Railroad, a narrow-gauge road which stag gered down across Black sex dating in milan state Wives wants casual sex Riley Fernandina.
From Cedar Keys a small steamer sailed once a week to Tampa, s topping at Clearwater along the way. It never deigned to stop anywhere on the Point. Consequently, if settlers wanted to Swinger mo guy looking for 40 and over fun their products on the steamer to Cedar Keys for trans-shipment on the railroad.
This they often did, but often to thei r sorrow.

Many times they did not receive enough for their products at Cedar Keys to pay the f reight. The reason was simp l e-the supply of farm products was far greater than the demand. It might have been a different story if the railroad would have gone through any large cities in which large quanti ties of food could be sold.
But all the towns along the railroad were small; many were mere hamlets. Their needs could easily be supplied locally. As a result, prices were low, so low that when freight charges had to be paid, growers often were ou t of pocket. Tampa did not provide a good market in those days simply because it was nothing but a small, nondescript village surrounded by farms which produced the same things as were grown on the Point.
