HAW5 Foundation Award
For this award, the kids at Bayside are hugely involved and best to determine which classmate most exemplifies what the HAW5 Award is truly about. Ironically this award embodies everything we hope the kids take away from the entire Pine Mountain experience. As Bayside parents, it’s our impression that Pine Mountain is meant to bring them closer together and to help them realize they only have a short period of time left to invest a little bit more in the people and place they love so much. If Henry could tell them anything, he would say, “don’t take a single opportunity or moment for granted”. Pine Mountain actually offers the perfect time for the kids to reflect on their years at Bayside and the mark they have left on each other and to recognize the person that has made the biggest imprint on the class as a whole.
The recipient of this award will be a good reflection of Henry:
1. He/ She is always happy and makes others happy, includes everyone, unites the grade, keeps people smiling and laughing.
2. He/ She is the person that when you find out they are in your class you look forward to that period everyday.
3. He/ She makes Bayside better by being involved in as many activities as possible. Not because they are always the superstar but more because they just don’t want to miss out on a single thing that involves being with friends and supporting their school.
4. He/She may not have a 4.0 and may barely squeak by with Cs, but they try hard and have a great attitude.
5. He/ she never wasted a single minute of the day.
6. He/ She loves his life, his school, his friends and his community.
This award is about the impression that he/she has left on classmates throughout their Years at Bayside.

I live about 3 miles from the Wise Family Cemetery and am myself a descendant of Colonel John and Hannah Wise through their daughter, Barbary Wise Robbins. I wrote the enclosed modest paper for a friend, Brice Stump who is doing a book on tombstones and the people buried under them.
I visit the Wise Cemetery with most of my visitors including relatives and never fail to point out your son's wall plaque. I cannot imagine the pain you suffer from his loss. I also viewed his service on the internet.
I have as a last sentence of paragraph one an attribution to the builder of the Wise Cemetery. Could you provide any more precise information?

THE WISE FAMILY CEMETERY AT CLIFTON ON CHESCONESSEX CREEK
Chesconessex Creek lies between Onancock Creek and Deep Creek on the Chesapeake Bay side of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Chesconessex is an Indian word meaning a place of blue birds. The history of the Wise Family Cemetery starts with the Indians and the Immigrant, Colonel John Wise. The Cemetery has 60 graves with ledger stones or tombstones and memorial plaques or tombstones. The Cemetery was built and endowed in the 1970's by Henry Wise and his son, John Wise.
John Wise (1625-1695), the Immigrant, descended from the Wise Family of Devonshire, England. His ancestry has confounded historians, including John Sergeant Wise who in 1893 went to England and enlisted Major Lewis Lovatt Ayshford Wise, a member of the British Parliament, for assistance.
That which is clearly documented is that John Wise, age 18, sailed with a kinsman, William Hudson, age 20, from Gravesend, England on July 4, 1635, and both men appear soon thereafter in records in the Shire of Accomack. Around 1648, John Wise married Hannah Scarburgh, daughter of Captain Edmund Scarburgh and Hannah Smith Scarburgh. John Wise patented 200 acres on Nandua Creek in 1655.
The Indian connection to the Immigrant John Wise came when John Wise purchased from Ekeekes, King of the Onancock and Chesconessex Indians, 600 acres on Chesconessex Creek by deed dated November 10, 1663 and named the plantation Clifton, a town in Devonshire. Expanded later to 1200acres, this land is today on Plantation Drive and leads to the site of Clifton and the Wise Family Cemetery
The Wise family produced many luminaries. Five consecutive "John Wise's" owned Clifton. The Wise Plantation passed by Last Will and Testaments for over 200 years until it left the Wise family in 1867. Colonel John Wise was a justice of the local court, a signer of the Northampton Protest directed to the Virginia Assembly in 1652 against taxation without representation, a militia officer, Royalist and Anglican. Though undocumented, Colonel Wise may have given St. George's Church its first communion silver. A daughter, Mary Wise, married William Anderson and their daughter, Naomi Anderson, married the great Presbyterian minister, Francis Makemie, founder of organized Presbyterism in America.
Honorable John Wise, II, was a planter and member of the House of Burgesses. He and others were indicted for a role in the burning of tobacco warehouses to increase the tobacco price in opposition to the British Acts regulating trade in the colonies. His wife was Matilda West Wise, a Quaker, and daughter of Lt. Col John West and Matilda Scarburgh West, daughter of Colonel Edmund Scarburgh, an Anglican.
John Wise III was a magistrate and married Scarburgh Robinson, daughter of Colonel Tully Robinson magistrate, Colonel in Bacon's Rebellion, and a vestryman at St. George's. His restored ledger stone can beseen today in the Poulson Cemetery in Onancock.
John Wise IV married Margaret Cable first and then Margaret Peggy Douglas, descendant of the Scottish Lord of Baads. He was born and died at Clifton and served as magistrate and colonel in the King's Lieutenants. In1756, he actively raised troops for the Indian War on Virginia's frontier.
John Wise, V, married Mary Polly Henry and after her death married, Sarah Corbin Cropper, daughter of General John Cropper of Bowman's Folly. John Wise, V, served in the Revolutionary War, later as a Colonel in the Virginia militia, Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates, lawyer, and planter. He was a Federalist siding with men like Washington, Hamilton, and Cropper in support of a strong central government. Thomas Jefferson called John Wise, V, a Tory and received a challenge to a duel which Jefferson did not accept. The son of John Wise, V, was John James Wise. He inherited Clifton and through his grandsons' estates Clifton passed out of the Wise family in 1867.
John Wise, IV, and Sarah Corbin Wise's oldest son to survive, Henry Alexander Wise, was born in a house in Drummond Town (now Accomac) which became the Accomac Hotel. Educated at Margaret Academy and Washington College in Pennsylvania where he met Anne Jennings, daughter of the local Presbyterian minister, The Reverend Obadiah Jennings. He went to a law school in Winchester and began the practice of law in Accomac. He then married Ann Jennings. She and one child died in a fire in 1837. She was buried in the Wise Cemetery and her grave and tombstone were later moved to Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond beside her husband's grave. For ten years, Wise served with success as a Representative in Congress. In 1840, he remarried Sarah Sergeant of Philadelphia, daughter of a congressman from Pennsylvania, and in1843 President Tyler appointed him U. S. Minister to Brazil. Sarah Sergeant Wise died in 1850 at age 33 and is buried in the Wise cemetery at Clifton. In1853, Wise married a third time to Mary Elizabeth Lyons. He returned to the practice of law. Wise served as Governor of Virginia from 1855-1860 He was member of the Virginia Secession Convention in 1861 and 1862. Ever the great orator, Wise spoke in support of Virginia seceding after two votes had failed. Dramatically placing a pistol on his desk, the third vote to secede passed. Wise served as a General in the Civil War. His son, Obadiah Jennings Wise, son by Anne Jennings, was killed in battle. General Wise met the steamer transporting the body and tearfully placed his face on the face of his son, saying that bravely he died for his Father's war.
Governor Wise and his second wife, Sarah Sergeant Wise, had a son, John Sergeant Wise, who born in Brazil in 1846 when his Father served as Minister. He was educated at the Virginia Military Institute and was one of the students who participated in the Civil War Battle of New Market. He married Eva Douglas and was an author, lawyer graduating from the University of Virginia Law School, and politician who served in Congress. He died in 1913 and is buried in Hollywood Cemetery.
Jennings Cropper Wise was the son of John Sergeant Wise and Eva Douglas and was born in 1881. He was educated at the Virginia Military Institute and in 1951 became its Commandant. Jennings Cropper Wise married Lucy Wood Carmack Smith and then Elizabeth Lydecker Anderson. He died in 1968 at age86 and is buried in the Wise Cemetery at Clifton. He was a military officer and author of numerous books including many on field artillery, the Civil War, World War II, national politics, and the history of the Eastern Shore of Virginia and the Wise family. His volume Colonel John Wise of England and Virginia (1617-1695): his Ancestors Descendants was used in preparation of the paper.
