A Biographical Narrative of William M. "Buck" Stubblefield Hawkins County, Tennessee Wife: 1st: Sarah Long d/o -?- 2nd: Nancy Northern d/o Davis & Sarah (-?-) Northern Parents: Probably Thomas & Martha (Bond) Stubblefield William M. Stubblefield was the son or possibly a grandson of Thomas and Martha (Bond) Stubblefield; Thomas was the son of Robert Loxley and Sarah (Easley) Stubblefield. William M. Stubblefield was one of Thomas' heirs and received Lot No. 1 in the division of his land. This division was directed by item six in Thomas' last Will and Testament, dated June 5, 1833. This research has been done in order to identify William M. Stubblefield after his last known Hawkins County land sale in 1849 and after his family was listed in the 1850 Hawkins County census. Based on the information that has been found to date, William M. "Buck" Stubblefield who wrote his last Will March 3, 1890 was William M. Stubblefield one of the heirs of Thomas Stubblefield. William M. Stubblefield married first Sarah Long, 1844, at Grainger County Tennessee. He married second about 1861, Nancy Northern. Buck was a blacksmith and lived in the 12th district near Galbraith Springs. Following is a summary of the information that has been found related to William M. Stubblefield. Starting with Thomas Stubblefield's Will, the division of Thomas' land among his eleven children, William M. Stubblefield's land transactions, William and Sarah's separation and divorce, William M. "Buck" Stubblefield's last Will, and finally a list of Buck Stubblefield's children. The identification of William M. Stubblefield is an on going project and new information when found will help us to better understand his life, in particular his birth parents. Partial Will of Thomas Stubblefield, Hawkins County, Tennessee. Will Book 1, Page 441. I, Thomas Stubblefield --- to my wife Patsey Stubblefield -- to my daughter Sally -- daughter Willemoth (who is in a helpless condition) -- Sixthly.

McCraw (Seal), Elisha Dodson (Seal), James L Etter (Seal), Thomas Cocke (Seal), William X McCarver (Seal) William M. Stubblefield's Sale and Purchase of Land (Prior to 1850) in Hawkins County, Tennessee 1. #William M. buys Lot No. 11 from James Long Sr. Deed Book 20 pg. 63, 1847 2. +William M. buys land adjacent to the heirs of Thomas Stubblefield from James Long Sr. Deed Book 20 pg. 63, 1847 3. William M. sold his interest in Lot No. 1 to James Long Sr. Deed Book 20 pg. 64, 1847. 4. *William M. sold his interest in Lot No. 11 to Hardy Johnson (Including his 1/11 share of dower land.) Deed Book 20 pg. 270, 1849 Land Transaction Notes: # James Long Sr. purchased Lot No. 11 from Hardy & Martha Long, 1842, Deed Book 18/12. +Disposition of this tract is not known. William T. Johnson & wife Minerva sold it in 1900 to Fen Stubblefield, Deed Book 50/311. No sale of this land by William M. Stubblefield has been found. The 1900 deed indicates that Hardy Johnson bought the land in 1849 from Thomas Stubblefield. This reference is a probable error. Minerva (Johnson) Johnson was one of Hardy's daughters and heir. Hardy is said to have removed to the southwest (Texas or Arizona) in the early 1860's. A will or division of Hardy's land needs to be located. They may give a clue as to how this section of land left William's possession. *This deed by William M. Stubblefield is informative because in it he states that he sells both his interest and any claim he may have to his mother's interest in Martha's dower land. He makes the following statement: "--- and also all the right title interest and claim that I the said William M. Stubblefield has in and to the Dower assigned to my mother Polly Stubblefield Deceased being a part of the tract of land on which Thomas Stubblefield died Seized and possessed of to the Said Hardy Johnson his heirs and assigns forever it being one 11th part of said Dower ---". This seems to indicate that William's mother was not Martha but the Polly Stubblefield deceased who was also assigned a one 11th share of the widows dower land. This Polly who was assigned a dower share must have been Thomas' daughter Mary "Polly" b. Apr 20, 1810. She married Samuel Haywood ca. 1830. Samuel and Mary moved to Greene County Ind. ca. 1832/33 and she died there in 1860. Mary would have been about fourteen years old at the time of William's birth ca 1824. The Greene County Indiana 1850 census, Taylor Twp., indicates that Samuel & Mary's daughter Martha, age seventeen, was born (ca 1833) in Indiana and also all other children after that date. William would have been about six years old when Polly married Samuel Haywood, and about eight years old when they removed to Indiana. It appears that William was raised as one of Thomas and Martha's own children and perhaps he thought Polly was dead when he sold any interest he had in her dower share. Hardy Johnson may have also thought she was dead and had William give up any claim to her one 11th share to gain a clear title to the dower land (Why did he not also give up any claim to Lot No. 4?). Samuel and Mary Haywood had sold her Lot No. 4 and her one 11th share of the dower land to Fleming Mays, 1837, Deed Book 16/5. Fleming and Nancy Mays sold Lot No. 4 & dower interest to William Mays, 1842, Deed Book 18/95. William Mays sold the same to Hardy Johnson, 1845, Deed Book 19/188. The fact that William M. Stubblefield was a child of Thomas Stubblefield is confirmed by Henry & Susannah Bridgewater, Deed Book 16/102 where this statement is made: "-- the deceased (Thomas Stubblefield) made a last will and testament leaving a widow and eleven children --". William M. Stubblefield being one of the eleven children to share in the division of Thomas' land. William M. Stubblefield, son or grandson of Thomas and Martha (Bond) Stubblefield? William M. Stubblefield married his first wife Sarah Long, 4 May 1844 at Grainger County, Tennessee. She apparently was a resident of Grainger County and may have been related to the Long husbands of four of his sisters. (Sarah m. James Long (Sr.), Orlena/Orleana m. Robert Wesley Long, America m. (another) James Long, and Martha m. Hardy/Hardin Long) When the 1850 census was taken William and Sarah were living adjacent to Thomas' widow Martha Stubblefield. William Stubblefield, age 26, laborer - Sarah, age 26 - Martha, age 4 - John, age 2. This is the only William Stubblefield with wife Sarah listed in the 1850 Hawkins County census and is surely William M. Stubblefield although no middle initial is given. No other William and Sarah Stubblefield are listed in the 1850 Grainger County, Tennessee census. By 1850 William M. Stubblefield had apparently sold all of the land that he had received as one of Thomas's heirs. In 1850 William and Sarah must have been living on land that he did not own. Why William M. would sell all of his land when he had just recently married in 1844 is an unanswered question. The sale could have been in conjunction with a plan to relocate. When William M. Stubblefield sold his land in 1847 and 1849 no wife is named relinquishing her dower rights to the property. (James Long Sr., husband of Sarah Stubblefield also did not include her in his land sales, even though some of the property was her inheritance from her father Thomas.) On 2 June 1858 William M. Stubblefield was tried for the malicious wounding of William S. Creed. The jury in the case was sequestered for several days before reaching a verdict on 5 June. William was found guilty as charged and sentenced to a term of two years in the "Penitentiary House" of the State. William entered a request for a new trial and was set free after he and his sister's husband, James Long, each posted a $1000 bond to guarantee his future court attendance. Both he & William Creed were placed under a $1000 Peace Warrant that stated they would "keep the peace towards the good citizens of the State of Tennessee" for a year and a day, and more particularly toward each other. At the 5 October 1858 Circuit Court session a ruling of Nolle Prosequi (We shall no longer Prosecute) was entered in favor of William. During the time William was charged and went to trial both William S. Creed and William's wife, Sarah (Long) Stubblefield were charged by the State with Lewdness & Adultery. Creed said at the 7 October 1858 Court: "..... he cannot deny but that he is guilty in manner and form as charged and submits to the mercy of the Court ...." He was fined $10 and ordered to pay the cost of the prosecution. A ruling of Nolle Prosequi was handed down in the State vs. Sarah Stubblefield case and William Creed paid the cost of her prosecution. On 11 February 1859 William Stubblefield reminded the court that William S. Creed remained under a Peace Warrant and Creed was charged with assault and battery upon James Long. Creed was given a trial by jury on 6 October 1859, found guilty, fined $15 and ordered to pay the cost of the prosecution. William and Sarah lived apart after this series of trials. No divorce has been found but it is assumed that it was final prior to William's 1861/62 second marriage to Nancy Northern. Sarah had removed to Hamilton County, Tennessee before 1860 where she was listed in the census of that county. Sarah Stubblefield, age 36, Domestic, Martha, age 15, John, age 12, & Mary, age 8. It is not known if Sarah remarried in or after 1860. She has not been found in the 1870 or 1880 census. William S. Creed continued to live with his wife, Tabitha, in Hawkins County. William Stubblefield, age 40, laborer, is listed in the 1860 Hawkins County census living with the Thomas Amis household. The 1870 census W. M. Stubblefield, age 50, can be readily identified as William M. Stubblefield because he is now married to Nancy Northern and his three oldest children are also listed. He is probably the 1860 census William Stubblefield listed with the Thomas Amis household because he is now 10 years older than the 1860 census William. The 1880 census lists Buck Stubblefield, age 56, his wife Nancy (Northern), and all seven of his known children. (Note that Buck's age gives a birth date ca. 1824 which is the same year as the 1850 census William Stubblefield.) Buck Stubblefield is clearly the William M Stubblefield who made his last will in 1890. In this will he names all of his living children who were listed in the 1880 census. His wife Nancy is not named and probably died prior to 1890. There is no other known William M. Stubblefield other than Buck Stubblefield of comparable age and with the same birth year living in either Hawkins County or Grainger County who could have been the descendant of Thomas and Martha (Bond) Stubblefield. Nor has a William M. Stubblefield been found to date in another Tennessee County or another state. Both William M. "Buck" Stubblefield and William M. Stubblefield (heir of Thomas) were literate or at least could sign their own names. Signatures of both that are found on recorded documents use their middle initial M. William M. Stubblefield on his marriage bond to Sarah Long, on his sale deeds made in 1847 and 1849, and on Buck's 1890 last Will. Both signed their first name as either William or Wm. Buck served in the Confederate Army and is listed as Wm. M. Stubblefield on a muster roll of Company D, 63rd Tennessee Infantry Regiment. My conclusion is that Buck and William M. are one and the same, William M. Stubblefield, one of the heirs of Thomas Stubblefield who died between 1833 and 1836 at Hawkins County, Tennessee. Buck Stubblefield, blacksmith, lived in the area of Galbraith Springs in the 12th district and was associated with the Galbraith family. The 1870 census shows that he was a near neighbor of Joseph Galbraith who is mentioned in the will. J. M. Hardwick who is the executor of his will was married to one of Joseph Galbraith's nieces. Buck sold his house and property to Joseph's sons E Andrew and Hugh. Buck's home and business was probably near the marble quarry because both the 1870 & 1880 census indicates that some of his neighbors were workers at the site. Perhaps his blacksmith shop supplied and repaired equipment for the quarrying operations. Will of William M. Stubblefield - Hawkins County, Tennessee - Will Book 1885 to 1921, Page No. 53 - 54 I William M. Stubblefield of the county of Hawkins and state of Tenn., being of sound mind do make this my last will. I give devise and bequeath my estate and property as follows, that is to say I have this day sold my house and land to E. A. & H. Galbraith for the sum of three hundred dollars ($300) and Joseph Galbraith is hereby instructed to make the deed to them for the land, the receipt of twenty fire dollars of which is hereby acknowledged, the balance of two hundred and seventy five dollars ($275) to be paid as follows in three equal annual installments of ninety one dollars, and sixty six cents ($91.66) each falling due in one, two and three years respectively, after possession is given of the place, with interest at the rate of six percent from the time possession is given of the place. To my son Thomas I give $20, to William I give one bed & my milk cow, to my son Andrew I give one bed and one third of all proceeds of sale of land, & one third of proceeds of sale of personal property, after all my debts are paid, to my daughter Amanda I give the same as to my son Andrew, -----, to my son Charley I give the same as to my son Andrew & my daughter Amanda, ----. I appoint J. M. Hardwick executor of this my last will. He will take charge of by business, and property immediately after my death. See that I have a decent burial then dispose of the property as he thinks to the best advantage. Pay all debts that I owe, then pay my son Thomas the sum of twenty dollars ($20) the amt. of his bequest. The balance will go to the three minors; Andrew, Amanda and Charley, and he will use his best judgment in paying to them, and is not to pay them any faster than their actual needs demand. It is agreed that I am to hold possession of the place where I now live to the end of my natural life. I will see that the buildings, fences, and fruit trees are properly cared for, then my executor will take charge of it as my will directs, and will secure suitable houses for the minor children. In witness hereof I have signed, and sealed and published and declared this instrument, as my last will. This March 3, 1890. William Stubblefield J. D. Laumer, Frederick Pangle I William M. Stubblefield of County of Hawkins and State of Tenn. hereby confirm my last will as made on the 3 March 1890. Wm Stubblefield Witt. Frederick Pangle, J. D. Laumer This will was presented at the Monday July 7, 1890 county court by J. M. Hardwick, and proved by J. D. Laumer & Frederick Pangle. Hardwick was approved executor thereof after providing bond and security. A recorded deed for the house and land sale to the E. Andrew & Hugh Galbraith has not been found in the Hawkins County deed books for 1890 through 1900. A deed for the purchase of the land has also not been found. William may have bought the property from Joseph Galbraith by way of a purchase agreement and didn't actually have the deed for the property in hand or he could have purchased the property from another and not registered the deed. In his will he stated that Joseph Galbraith was to make the deed for the property to E. A. & H. Galbraith. It may be difficult to determine William's land sale unless it is stated as such in the deed. There is one sale of land to E. A. & H Galbraith by Joseph that occurred in 1896. A detailed examination of this deed failed to determine if it was the William M. Stubblefield property. There is a possibility that Buck or Nancy could have received the land by way of an unknown person's last will. J. M. Hardwick the executor for William's estate was dead by October 1892 when James D. Wright was appointed administrator of his estate. E. A. Galbraith (at a date not yet determined) was appointed by the Court to be Administrator de bonis non of William Stubblefield's estate. April 1897, Order: "Whereas it appears to the Court now in session that there is Ten Dollars in the hands of T. J. Parrott clerk of this Court due Charles Stubblefield as an heir at law of W. Stubblefield Dec'd, and that his Guardian W. D. Russell has moved from the state it is ordered that T. J. Parrott clerk pay the Ten Dollars to said Charles Stubblefield and enter the same as a credit in favor of the Guardian W. D. Russell". In December 1897 as part of a Chancery Cause initiated by James & Amanda (Stubblefield) Earley, a new guardian was appointed by the Court to represent Charlie in the Case. The Chancery Cause by James and Amanda was brought against E. A. Galbraith to force an accounting of the money that came into his hands and also to the hands of the previous Administrator, J. M. Hardwick, from the estate of her father, William M. Stubblefield dec'd. The Case also requested an accounting of the amount that remained after debts and expenses were paid, the amount of each heir's share of the remainder and how much of each heir's share had not yet been distributed. At the 20 September 1898 Court a decree was handed down that stated: The share for each heir was $80.03 after all expenses had been paid from the estate funds. All funds had been distributed to each heir except Amanda Early was due $28.34 that included interest for the five years it had remained unpaid. This is the last known court entry pertaining to the final settlement of William's estate. His descendants know William M. as "Buck" Stubblefield. Buck married second, ca. 1861, Hawkins County, Nancy Northern b. ca. 1841, Tennessee, d/o of Davis & Sarah (-?-) Northern. Davis and Sarah had relocated from North Carolina to Hawkins County ca. 1840/41. Buck's last Will makes no mention of his children from his failed first marriage to Sarah Long.

Email to Ronda 6/24/2004:
Ronda - I just discovered there were two William Moores in Laurel/Rockcastle Co KY born about 1850/1852. There was Wm. F. Moore who married Bussell and Overbay and there was William Moore who married Catherine Milburn (the son of Isaac Moore (brother of James)). I had assumed they were the same Wm. but they were cousins (1X removed). So apparently your Wm. Moore DID NOT marry Catherine Milburn as I had thought. The web page I just posted is not correct - I just found this information today. I'll fix the web page soon.

I have new information about the descendants of Lemuel Moore indicating that he already had a son named James so the younger James who was living with him in 1850 Laurel KY was probably his grandson:
Lemuel was married to Margaret 1st (not sure if she's the same person as Ann) married to Ann in 1850 census
They had:
Cynthia, 1798
Margaret, prob bef 1800
Alanson W., abt. 1810/1820 in Rutherford NC, died Mar 18 1836, Rutherfordton, NC
Ransom Irvin, Mar 14 1801 in Rutherford NC, died Jul 8 1885 in Rusk Co, Texas (married Nancy Gosea)
Nancy, May 1804 in TN, died after 1880 in Laurel KY (married Joseph Pruitt)
Winniford, abt 1804 in TN, died after 1880 Laurel KY (married Wm. Broughton)
James, abt 1800/1805 in NC or TN, died poss before 1850 in Laurel KY (prob father of James who married Mary Reynolds and was living with Lemuel in 1850 Laurel KY)
Lemuel, abt 1810 in Rutherford NC or TN (married Nancy M. Stone and lived in Giles Co TN)
Unknown female, abt 1810/1815
Isaac Moore, abt 1822 in TN (married Jane and was father of the other Wm. Moore)
Mary Margaret, abt 1835 in TN, died Dec 26 1911 in Vernon Co MO (married Elisha Smallwood)

Therefore, the probable father of your James was James Sr. who was born abt 1800/1805 in NC or TN. Here are the census records for him and those who lived near him:

This family had a lot of relatives in Giles Co TN and they would travel back and forth according to one of their descendants. Lemuel is shown in Rutherford NC census records in 1800-1820, 1830 Giles TN, 1840 & 1850 Laurel KY.

I have new information about the descendants of Lemuel Moore indicating that he already had a son named James so the younger James who was living with him in 1850 Laurel KY was probably his grandson:
Lemuel was married to Margaret 1st (not sure if she's the same person as Ann) married to Ann in 1850 census
They had:
Cynthia, 1798
Margaret, prob bef 1800
Alanson W., abt. 1810/1820 in Rutherford NC, died Mar 18 1836, Rutherfordton, NC
Ransom Irvin, Mar 14 1801 in Rutherford NC, died Jul 8 1885 in Rusk Co, Texas (married Nancy Gosea)
Nancy, May 1804 in TN, died after 1880 in Laurel KY (married Joseph Pruitt)
Winniford, abt 1804 in TN, died after 1880 Laurel KY (married Wm. Broughton)
James, abt 1800/1805 in NC or TN, died poss before 1850 in Laurel KY (prob father of James who married Mary Reynolds and was living with Lemuel in 1850 Laurel KY)
Lemuel, abt 1810 in Rutherford NC or TN (married Nancy M. Stone and lived in Giles Co TN)
Unknown female, abt 1810/1815
Isaac Moore, abt 1822 in TN (married Jane and was father of the other Wm. Moore)
Mary Margaret, abt 1835 in TN, died Dec 26 1911 in Vernon Co MO (married Elisha Smallwood)

Therefore, the probable father of your James was James Sr. who was born abt 1800/1805 in NC or TN. Here are the census records for him and those who lived near him:

1820 census - Rutherford Co, NC
Lemuel Moore (310101-01201) PG 372

This family had a lot of relatives in Giles Co TN and they would travel back and forth according to one of their descendants. Lemuel is shown in Rutherford NC census records in 1800-1820, 1830 Giles TN, 1840 & 1850 Laurel KY.

Email from Rhonda (5/16/2004):
Hi Sandra, I know my James was born in Greene County TN. My grandpa told me (before he died in 1986) that he could remember his grandparents were James and Mary Moore and he was born in TN. Now the 1860 Census report supports the TN birth, and my grandpa (George D. Moore b 1901) father was William F. Moore and his father was James Moore. According to the death certificate I have for William F. his father was Jim (James) Moore and the mother was listed as unknown. This was info given by another son of William's named Claude Moore. I hope this helps some. The date of birth listed on William's death cert. in Aug. 30, 1850.
Let me know if this helps.

EMAILS TO/FROM RONDA, MAY 2005:
In a message dated 5/27/2005 11:14:15 AM Pacific Standard Time, rmooredavis@msn.com writes:
Hi Sandy, My great grandfather Willaim F. Moore was the son of James Moore and a lady named Mary,I found this family in a Ky census report Laurel County 1860 and there is where I found Lemuel Moore's name. My William F. Moore was born 1850 and the age was right on the census. Any help? I am not sure about his mother but I feel postive his father was James Moore.

Ronda - thank you. James and Mary were married Feb 1854.
In the 1910 census William gives his age as 54. This would translate to a birth year of 1856. Do you think we might have the wrong birth year for William? Or maybe the marriage year of 1854 is not correct.
Waht is the source for William's birth date? You wrote last year that William was age 37 on the marriage record in 1889. That translates to a birth year of about 1852. So I tend to believe he was born before 1854.
Also, James K. Moore who was William's brother was born May 1854. If James Sr and Mary were married in Feb 1854 this means James K. Moore was born only 3 months later. This also makes me believe there may be an error in the year of James and Mary's marriage and/or in the census records.
However, since James Sr. appeared to be single and living with Lemuel and Ann in 1850 it makes me wonder how he could have had a son in August 1850. I'll do some more checking to try and determine if we have the right James and Mary as William's parents.
There were so many errors in census and marriage records, it's hard to be sure about all of this.
If you have confidence that James Moore was the father of William F. Moore, it might be worth trying that DNA test. Would your father be willing to do it? It requires only a cheek swab using something similar to a Q-tip. There is no blood or pain involved.
Thanks, Sandy
-------------------------------------------

Ronda - I just discovered there were two William Moores in Laurel/Rockcastle Co KY born about 1850/1852. There was Wm. F. Moore who married Bussell and Overbay and there was William Moore who married Catherine Milburn (the son of Isaac Moore (brother of James)). I had assumed they were the same Wm. but they were cousins (1X removed). So apparently your Wm. Moore DID NOT marry Catherine Milburn as I had thought. The web page I just posted is not correct - I just found this information today. I'll fix the web page soon.

I have new information about the descendants of Lemuel Moore indicating that he already had a son named James so the younger James who was living with him in 1850 Laurel KY was probably his grandson:
Lemuel was married to Margaret 1st (not sure if she's the same person as Ann) married to Ann in 1850 census
They had:
Cynthia, 1798
Margaret, prob bef 1800
Alanson W., abt. 1810/1820 in Rutherford NC, died Mar 18 1836, Rutherfordton, NC
Ransom Irvin, Mar 14 1801 in Rutherford NC, died Jul 8 1885 in Rusk Co, Texas (married Nancy Gosea)
Nancy, May 1804 in TN, died after 1880 in Laurel KY (married Joseph Pruitt)
Winniford, abt 1804 in TN, died after 1880 Laurel KY (married Wm. Broughton)
James, abt 1800/1805 in NC or TN, died poss before 1850 in Laurel KY (prob father of James who married Mary Reynolds and was living with Lemuel in 1850 Laurel KY)
Lemuel, abt 1810 in Rutherford NC or TN (married Nancy M. Stone and lived in Giles Co TN)
Unknown female, abt 1810/1815
Isaac Moore, abt 1822 in TN (married Jane and was father of the other Wm. Moore)
Mary Margaret, abt 1835 in TN, died Dec 26 1911 in Vernon Co MO (married Elisha Smallwood)

Therefore, the probable father of your James was James Sr. who was born abt 1800/1805 in NC or TN. Here are the census records for him and those who lived near him:

1820 census - Rutherford Co, NC

This family had a lot of relatives in Giles Co TN and they would travel back and forth according to one of their descendants. Lemuel is shown in Rutherford NC census records in 1800-1820, 1830 Giles TN, 1840 & 1850 Laurel KY.

Hi Sandra, I am looking at my William's Marriage License to my great grandmother and his mother was born in Laurel County KY that is probably no help to you but I was looking on the marriage record for any other info that might help. It also says William was born in Laurel County so that place's James in Laurel County around 1850. Do you think some of his siblings could have been there too?

Ancestry message board:
I am in search of my ggrandfather's parents and siblings.
His name is William F. Moore and was born 1850-51 and died June 10,1923. Willaim married at least twice and had several children by both wives. His first wife was Martha Overbay and they had the following children to my knowledge.
Billy,Greene,Sue Ellen,Martha,John and Albert who was called Pall. Willaim's family is listed in the Laurel County Census when he was a child and his parents are James Moore and Mary Moore. James was born in Greene County TN.
William's second wife was Tertha Lilitha (Tilitha) Bustle
who's parents were James and Melvina French Bustle.
William and Tilitha were married May 30,1889 and had the following children: Myrtle,Claude,Flaurdie,Fitz U. "Lee"
George Dewey,Gus,Jess and Agnus. If you know of any information on any of these people please email me and let's make a connection. Family is a good thing to have.
Thanks a lot. Ronda Moore Davis

        William married (1) Martha L. Wright OVERBAY daughter of John Calvin OVERBAY and Easter Elizabeth WRIGHT. Martha was born about 1866 in Kentucky.

There was a Martha Overbay in Laurel Co and in Rockcastle Co born about the same time. Since William was in Laurel Co, it's most likely that the Martha in Laurel Co is the one who married him.

I saw your database on rootsweb and wondered if Martha Overbay, dau of Preston Overbay and Malinda Cope might be the person I'm looking for. A Martha Overbay married William F. Moore probably in Laurel or Rockcastle Co KY. William was born Aug 3 1850 in Laurel Co KY and died Jun 10 1923. We have no information on his wife Martha except her last name. Do you think she could the same person?
Thanks!

Email from Ronda:
Sandy, I do not have anything other that William and Martha had at least one child together and his name was Albert (Pall) Moore and he died in 1956 in Mt Vernon KY area . Let me know if this helps I have been searching for her for a long time. Ronda

Email from Ronda re: marriage of Martha and William:
Sandy, I have the obit form the paper on Pall Moore and I saw the marriage license at a courthouse somewhere but I am not able to remember where. It seems like it was in Mt Vernon but I have not been able to locate it since. I didn’t get a copy then I thought I would get it later. I have learned if you have it in your hands COPY it then.

This lilitha is my great grandmother. Her given name was Teretha Lilitha and she was known as Tilitha.

Tilitha was the second wife of William F. Moore. He states on his marriage record this is his second marriage. He had a whole set of children before they married and then they had a set after they married. Ronda

  212 M ii James K. MOORE was born in May 1854 in Kentucky. He died on 10 Jan 1932 in Laurel Co, KY.

James K. Moore may be the step-son of James Moore since he was born 3 months after his marriage to Mrs. Mary Reynolds he gives his father's birth place as KY when James was born in TN.

Check out will/probate, any obituary, funeral home??? divorce or marriage papers? siblings? Did she marry a Moore after E Smallwood died or? Is the 'married' on the death cert an error.

Email from Martha Hansen 3/25/04:
Now about Great Grandma Mary Margaret, I don't anything about her family. I do remember my Mom saying that Mary's parents were from Ireland.
I was wondering about something though, that might be a lead as to her having siblings. When I told my sister about the story of Great Grandpa Elisha Smallwood, I mentioned the name Barter, she said that name is familiar. I was wondering and it is only a stab in the dark, that the two men (Barter and wolf), who were named a the securities of the bond, to pay the money Elisha and Mary owed. Excuse my wording, I need to go back to grammar class. (~: I am rambling, but what I am getting at is; maybe they were Mary Margaret's brother-in-laws. I really doubt that non-relatives would enter into such an arrangement. Yeah, it's a long shot, but who knows, it could be.

There are three James Moores listed in Laurel Co KY in 1840 living near Lemuel Moore. One is age 40-50. James Moore Sr is age 50-60 and next to him is James Moore Jr age 20-30. They all have females under the age 5. There are no James Moores listed in Laurel Co in 1850 - but there is a James Moore in Clay Co KY

1850 Census - Clay Co, KY - pg 101
James Moore, 27, KY
Elizabeth, 24, KY
David, 5, KY
Reubin, 3, KY
Henry, 1, KY

There is a Reuben Moore in 1850 Clay Ky page 100 - he's age 60. No idea if he's related to this Mary or James but probably is above James' relative since James named a son Reubin.

Reuben Moore, 60, NC -- could be Mary's father or uncle (also could be brother to James who was here in 1840??-see below)
Elizabeth, 22, KY
Ephram?, male, 14, KY
Farchy?, female, 12, KY

In 1840 there was another James Moore in Clay KY. He could be the above James Moore's father or uncle.

1840 Census - Clay Co KY
James S. Moore
Males: 1 3 1 1 0 1(30-40)
Females: 0 1 0 0 2 1 - no females age 0-5, but a female age 5-10 could be Mary

It's possible that Mary was in Laurel KY in 1840 and in Clay KY in 1850 - maybe working as a servant.

Also, there were Smallwoods in Clay Co KY at the same time. Elijah and William were living not too far away from the above Moores. These were the sons of John Smallwood and Francis Fannie (Jemima?) Smith. Elijah was age 36 - 15 years younger than our Hezekiah. He could be the E. Smallwood who got that Rockcastle Land Grant in 1852- one year before Elisha married Mary.

SMALLWOODS IN CLAY COUNTY IN 1850:
Name: Smallwood, Jesse
Page: 136
Name: Smallword, Elijah
Page: 107
Name: Smallwood, William
Page: 106

If Hezekiah was related to the Smallwoods who were in Clay Co KY, maybe Mary Moore met Elisha through them. Of course, I don't know if the above Mary Moore is the right one!! This one was born in TN in about 1833/34. Also have no idea how our Hezekiah might be related to Elijah, Jesse and William. Their father John was born before 1784 in NC. Since our Hezekiah may have been born in NC - this looks promising.

John Smallwood was married at least twice - maybe three times. His descendant, Gary Smallwood, sent me a huge file and his database is listed on rootsweb. He's not sure if Francis Fannie Smith is also Jemima Smith. The following marriage records were found for John:

Kentucky Marriage Records:
Russell, Jinny Smallwood, John 15 Jan 1815 Kentucky Shelby County
Smith, Jemima Smallwood, John 25 Jan 1808 Kentucky Clay County

But his will refers to his wife Fanny. He died Dec. 1821 in Lawrence Co TN. (BTW there was a James Moore in Lawrence TN in 1830 - no image available)

John was the son of William Smallwood and Sarah Philpot. Their children were:
Mary Babb Smallwood, married Ledstone Noland - he died in Estill Co KY
Elijah - died in Mississippi
Randolph - died in Owsley Co KY
John - died in Lawrence TN (the one referenced above who was in Clay KY in 1808 when he married Jemima)
Samuel - died in Jasper Co IL
Elisha - died in Hall Co, Georgia
William - probably went to Georgia since his son Marke was born there
Nancy - married Andrew Smith
James - probably went to Georgia since his son Thomas was born there.

Name: Elisah Smallwood
Company: A
Unit: 2 Missouri S. M. Cav.
Rank - Induction: Private
Rank - Discharge: Private
Allegiance: Union

When the war ended in the spring of 1865, all Vernon County lay devastated. Hardly a hundred families remained and all the towns, with the partial exception of Balltown, had been destroyed. Few farms were left untouched. Kansas Jayhawkers had stolen even the fence rails! Public business, untended for four years, were in hopeless disorder.

Ex-Confederate soldiers drifted home through the summer, shortly joined by Union veterans seeking new homes. As a rule they cooperated to rebuild the ruined country, which began to wear the look of the real pioneer times, thirty years before. Buildings went up in Nevada and by early 1867, business had revived. The county government first operated from Balltown, but in 1868 a new brick courthouse was built. On March 3, 1869, the town was incorporated and the word "City" dropped from its name. The new city fathers hired a marshal to keep the peace, laid down some board sidewalks and started Deepwood Cemetery.

Old Harrow $2.00. There is no mention of Nancy Jane Smallwood, my great grandmother. I am assuming the reason was she was not a minor child. ??? The first time they name the children, John is listed; but not the second time listed. ??? What was Elisha doing in Arkansas? Was the family living there?? At this moment I remember written somewhere that Mary Smallwood tried to get a pension from Elisha military service; but was denied. Lady at the library stated many were denied pensions if they had not served 3 years.

E-mail from Martha Hansen (3/4/2004):

Re: Elisha Smallwood: My Mom told me that she was told, that after the Civil War he left on his horse looking for work and never came back. It was assumed that he died. The story my Mom always heard was that he had a hernia and he wore a truss. It was supposed that if he had to take it off that he may not have gotten it back on, because his wife was the only one that could get it on for him. Maybe the caused his death. Well, I did a bad job of telling that story. But you get my drift. Emma was very little when he died. She probably heard bits and pieces, at a young age and thought that was the truth. She in turn told my Mom and hey, I would have never known if I had not talked with you and Juanita. So thanks again.

Martha also stated in another e-mail that her sister has a framed picture of Elisha Smallwood. She's going to ask her to make a copy and send it to me. That would be great!

MY NOTES:
I'm starting to put 2 and 2 together now. Here's one possible scenario: Elisha was mentally stressed out by the Civil War and losing his father and possibly his brother William. He may have decided that he couldn't handle the responsibility of a family and took off for Arkansas. Apparently, he didn't tell his wife or family this bit of news. He simply didn't come home. Trying to make ends meet, Mary sends her children off to live with friends and relatives, applies for a widows pension and is denied. At some point Mary finds out that Elisha was killed in 1878. Can you imagine how she must have felt? Knowing that he just left them to fend for themselves while he was buying land and running a business? Wow! Elisha was in Missouri in 1870 census. Clara was born 1874. She may have been wondering about his fate for 4 years! That poor woman! And I think I have problems....yeah, right!

Mom used to tell me that her Grandpa Elisha Smallwood was Pennsylvania Dutch, and that his family came from Holland. I guess that is just something else to play with. I keep racking my brain to jog my memory.

Email received 5/8/2004 from Martha Hansen:
When I was a kid, my Mom, Hazel, told me that they had slaves. They were very good to them and when the Civil War was over, Elisha and Mary told them they could leave if they wanted to. they were free; however, she said they had no place to go and chose to stay and help them. Mom told me

Elisha and Mary had the following children:

        John married (1) Rachel M. WOLF daughter of Amos WOLF and Elmira RILEY on 24 Dec 1878 in Nevada, Vernon Co., Missouri. Rachel was born in 1860 in Henry Co., Illinois. She died in 1902.

Did Rachel remarry?
Name: LEROY STARBUCK
Spouse: RACHEL [Mrs] SMALLWOOD
Marriage Date: 07 Nov 1878
County: Clark
State: MO

Rachel was from Montevallo, MO:
The year 1863 was "the most woeful" in Vernon County's history. "Back and forth into Missouri rode the Kansas Jayhawkers; back and forth into Kansas rode the Missouri guerrillas; back and forth into loyal Cedar rode the Vernon Bushwhackers; back and forth into rebel Vernon rode the Cedar militia." Montevallo was burned by Iowa troops on April 14th, 1862. Farms were burned and pillaged. Men and boys were slain. Normal life, schooling, churches and law courts, had become a dim memory. The few families who hadn't fled south, struggling to carry on in a normal way, "had a hard time of it. They were preyed upon by both sides".

Betty Jane Branson, Mary's granddaughter, recalls knowing Mary in her childhood. Mary was stricken with rheumatoid arthritis in her later years and was confined to a wheel chair. Betty recalls that Mary lived with them on several occasions. Betty's father, Gus Oren, loved to tell jokes and Betty remembers her grandmother laughing uproariously at Oren's joke telling. She was quite a sight to see, with no teeth, laughing loudly, and slapping her hands on the arms of her wheel chair. She was quite a character.

Seeking any info on my grandfather Solomon C. Imler born 12-4-1868 in Nevada (Vernon Co) MO and/ or his family. He was a very secretive man & we only recently discovered his family on an 1870 Nevada census record.

Some of the family were still living in Nevada as late as 1923. I have located the following marriage licenses & records for the family in Nevada: Solomon married Wilda Maxwell 12-26-1887; Jennie Perry 4-21-1900; Effie Campbell Timbers (died 1913) 11-18-1905; Jennie Terrel 8-21-1914 (div. 12-28-1914); Amanda E.

Search notes for Anna's husband:

David P. IMLER 54 <1826> Pennsylvania Self Married White Male Osage, Vernon, MO
Emaline IMLER 45 <1835> Tennessee Wife Married White Female Osage, Vernon, MO

Also found the following Imlers in Vernon County in the 1870 census (The year Anna was born):
Daniel Imler 5 1864 Kansas White Center, Vernon, MO Male (Could be Anna's husband)
David Imler 40 1829 Pennsylvania White Center, Vernon, MO Male

Soloman Imler 1 1868 Missouri White Center, Vernon, MO Male
Thomas Imler 16 1853 Ohio White Center, Vernon, MO (Could be Anna's husband)

If he was dead in 1920, it's possible that he was quite a bit older than Anna.
        Annie married (1) Thomas P. IMLER son of David P. IMLER and Emeline on 1 Dec 1898 in Nevada, Vernon, MO. Thomas was born in 1854 in Ohio. He died before 1920.

I was looking through my Mom's old address book. In the back I found this info. Emma (Smallwood) Griffith. Weighed 165 pounds at age 65. She was 5' 7'' tall. Born Feb.25, 1873. She worked at the State Hospital in Nevada, Mo from Oct. 19, 1930 until she died.

Emma daughter: Ethel (Griffith) Devore and Luther Devore's son Bill died July 31, 1974. Bill's wife Minnie died Jan. 11, 1972.
They lived in Junction City, KS. I am not sure of the year, but I Believe it was in the 1950's they had a big explosion of gas in their house. It made the paper in Iowa. A real tragedy. I will keep looking through all my papers. I may find a clipping.

Dear Sandy,
I have a lot of info on the pilchers. We will have to compare and share.
As for Walter Lee Griffith, his father's name was Walter O. Griffith. I have a feeling that the O. is for Oscar. Walter Lee had a son (my Uncle) whose name was Herbert Oscar Griffith.
