Generation No. 1

 

1.  WILLIAM2 SMITH  (ANDREW (ANDREAS SCHMIT/ SCHMIDT)1) was born 1762 in Prague Farm, Baltimore County, MD, son of Andrew (Andreas Schmidt) Smith and Elizabeth Estep (?), and died March 03, 1848 in Pierce's Run, Franklin Community, Wellsburg, BROOKE, VA (WV).  He married ROSANNAH BOZMAN 1786 in Baltimore County, Maryland, daughter of EDWARD BOZMAN and ROSANNAH LYON.  She was born 1763 in Baltimore County, MD, and died July 11, 1846 in Pierce's Run, Franklin Community, Wellsburg,  BROOKE, VA (WV).

Information compiled by Anna Wells Bynanna in the early 1950's.  She worked along with Adah Lauck Pilchard and Allie McAddo.

 

The following was written by Albert Linley Wells and his daughter Nola Cronin

 

Notes from Sara Tunnicliff Gilchrist spells his name Schmidt, but Virginia Tunnicliff Soper says his name was Smitt or Schmitt.  The census of 1880 lists Andrew Smith, aged 78, and reports that both his father and mother were born in Maryland.  William and Rosannah lived near Baltimore, Maryland.  In 1795, they migrated westward in a prairie schooner.  The beds of the wagons were built like boats as it was necessary to ford streams, and they needed to keep their food, clothing, and furniture dry.  The wagons carried all of their worldly goods.  It is believed a large party migrated together from Maryland.  This party consisted of the families of Smith, Green, McCreary, Hunter, and Bozman.  Many of these families stayed in Brooke County, Virginia for a short time, and then continued onward into Ohio and places further west.  William and Rosannah stayed in the Pierce's Run area of what is Brooke County, Virginia (now West Virginia).  He established his home on what is now Genteel Ridge and in 1797, he and others "threw" together a log hut on Pierce's Run to be used for a school and religious purposes.  Some years later, they built a Stone Chapel for school and church for use of the Presbyterians, Methodists and Baptists.  This was probably the first stone or brick school house and church built west of the Alleghenies.  The families that had traveled together became neighbors in this area.  Many of their children married one-another.  These settlers were handy as carpenters and farmers.  It was necessary for them to erect all buildings and supply all food.  They were also religious people.  This was demonstrated by their concern for the need for churches in the new area.  A deed is recorded in the Brooke County Courthouse showing where William and Rosannah Smith, Edward Bozman (Rosannah's brother), and Thomas and Jane Newton deeded land for a church on Pierce's Run.  (See accompanying notes on the Pierce's Run Church.)  "Doddridge's Notes", which is book of notes on the history of the area written by Dr. Joseph Doddridge, states that William helped to build the Methodist Episcopal Church in Wellsburg.  William and Rosannah are buried in Franklin Cemetery, near Wellsburg, WV.  They had four children:
A. Sarah (Sally)   B. Edward   C. Andrew   D. Catharine

 

     Located in Franklin Cemetery, beside William and Rosannah, is the grave of Mary McConnell.  She died July 23, 1869 and was 83 years old.  We were led to believe this was a sister of William Smith. We also found in the Brooke County Courthouse that Mary McConnell was the widow of Joshua Lee, but we can't find any record of a Mr. McConnell.  We found in a deed where she sold her farm as a life estate to Andrew Smith.  He was to pay her $100.00 per year from which she was to pay the taxes.  Andrew was also to "pay" her 500 rails a year plus spend $35.00 per year on improvements to the farm.  Does anyone have any clue as to the connection between the Smiths and the Lees?  We found other references that the families were connected, but cannot find the link!!

 

 

We found the Smith, Hunters, Greens, and McCrearys to be industrious, courageous, and religious citizens of the community in which they lived.  We have also found these families to be true emigrants - mode of travel - time - roads did not deter them from moving to other areas of the country, or to return home for visits and the reunions.  The members of the family today live in the United States from coast to coast and border to border.

 

We would like to thank all who were so generous in their help to us, for without this help we would not have what we have and this genealogy would not be what it is.  We have been a long time compiling this, but the job kept getting bigger.  This is only the beginning as a genealogy requires constant updating.  We leave it to you to carry on, each in their own family.   If you can give any dates, births, deaths, or marriages, or supply any other missing information, we would appreciate it.

Pierce's Chapel, a quaint stone structure probably the first brick or stone church/schoolhouse built west of the Allegheny mountains, was built around 1798.  It was given to the community by William.  There is a deed of record in 1830.

The LDS Genealogical files lists a William Smith and Rosannah Bozman getting married on January 28, 1895 in Baltimore County, MD.  I question this since Sarah was born in 1787.

                                                 History of Franklin Community
                                                     by Cornelius G. Reeves

 

     In the surveying parties of the late 1780's and early 1790's that visited this part of western Virginia, was a young man named William Smith.  (Rosalyn Gibbs's information says that he was a member of the Christopher Gist surveying party which surveyed "West Augusta" for the Washingtons, Lees, Fairfaxes, and others.  These people proposed to establish the Fourteenth Colony, but which came to naught by the approaching storm of the Revolutionary War.)   When he returned to Baltimore County he married Miss Rosannah Bozman.  A daughter, Sarah was born to them in Maryland   The family came to Brooke County and in the early fall of 1796, where, overtaken by storm, they found shelter in a cabin in a Sugar grove near Independence, PA.  The stork paid a visit that night and a son was born.  It is not known whether there was a physician or even a mid-wife. Pioneers were resourceful and husbands and fathers performed many duties then.  The baby was Dr. Edward Smith in later years known for his ministrations in child birth.  Two old buildings erected by the hands of William Smith are still standing on the farm, now occupied by Mr. A. Greenleaf standing on the hill above the Stone Chapel on Pierce's Run.  They are a brick spring house and a log-clapboard building.  The incident of the boy baby in the sugar grove cabin and the statement of Joseph F. Gist that his great grandfather settled on Genteel Ridge about the year 1795, fixes the first settlement in Franklin Community, with fair accuracy in the early nineties of the Eighteenth Century.

 

     .....The second immigration into the county from the east began in 1795, or one year before the county was organized and named.  Among those emigrants were Thomas Cook, Nathaniel Fleming, James Barrah, William McClane, Benjamine Reed, Rev. Joseph Doddridge and his brother Phillip Doddridge.  It was during this second immigration that Franklin community was first settled.

                           EARLY SETTLERS IN COUNTY 150 YEARS AGO

 

     A country Life Conference was held at Franklin Church on April 10, 28, and 30 (no year given) under the direction of the county agricultural agent, E.G. Hibbs.  The conference was largely attended and carefully selected program was conducted which included a very interesting paper by Corneilus G. Reeves, a history of Franklin Community, which is given in full to the readers of the Times as follows.

 

                                      History of Franklin Community
                                          by Cornelius G. Reeves

 

     If you can go back with me in your imagination some 150 years and draw a mental picture of the country surrounding this church, you would see these hills and valleys one vast forest of most magnificent trees.  The soil was the very richest because its resources had never been drawn upon.
     Through this great forest might be seen the deer, the elk, the brown bear, the wild hog and great herds of buffalo, and at night might be heard the call of the panther and the scream of the wildcat.
     And last, but by no means the least important, was the American Indian who had first claim upon this country by right of possession.  It was fighting for this same right that later caused the settlers so much trouble.
     Into this vast wilderness came a little band of travelers.  They came on horseback; men, women, and children, carrying all their worldly possession with them.  Why they left the eastern shore of Maryland, fought their way over the mountains, and came away out here, we do not know, but we do know that they were most noble men and women, and those of use who are their direct descendents are proud of the fact.
     As this little company was making its way westward they stopped to rest by a spring of water which gushed out of the hillside.
     Those of you who know the spring at the home of J.C. Gist, can understand how it must have appealed to those tired and thirsty travelers on that hot summer day.  At any rate, one of their number, Cornelius H. Gist, said he was going no farther, that there he proposed to make his home.
     The others located in the neighborhood, forming a colony whose descendents are still helping to make this community what it is.
     One of the things which they brought with them was a devout Christian spirit. It was this spirit which let to the establishment of the Methodist Church in Franklin Community. 
     The first services were held somewhere near the state line, but later a log house was built near the lower corner of Franklin Cemetery.  This house was used both for a school house until 1830, when Dr. Edward Smith donated ground.  In regard to Dr. Smith, I will quote from sentiments expressed by Mr. M.L. Douglas:
     "One man whom I think ought to figure in the history of this community is Dr.
Edward Smith, born in 1796, died in 1874.  He had for years had the health of all this section of country to care for.  Riding night and day, as often to the cabin as to the home of the rich -- never charging the poor.  He literally gave his life for others."
     This inscription may be seen on his tombstone: 
     "He was a Christian, an eminent physician, a philanthropist, energetic, and a friend to the poor."
     Everybody loved Dr. Smith.  And then last but not least, he was the grandfather of Judge Harry Hervey, and great, great uncle of our George Smith.
     In 1832, a church was built on this ground and in 1854, this building proving too small, was torn down and a new church erected.  This was the brick building which was destroyed by the Easter storm, March 30, 1902.  Two years later this, the present Franklin Church was built.
     Before the church was supplied with a regular pastor, services were conducted by traveling preachers, Circuit riders, as they were called.
     (An explanation of the preachers was given)  These earlier settlers lived in friendly relations with the Indians, but later as they realized their land were taken from them, they became hostile and many are the harrowing stories told of them.  The settler lived in constant terror of these raids and it became necessary to build forts as a place of retreat.  One of these was located near the campground, on the Mullholland farm. It served this whole section. (More information given).  Following is a list of names who were the first to come to this land:  Hervey, Gist, Smith, Bosman, Applegate, Ralston, Jamison, Rare, Amspoker, McAdoo, Wells, Marsh, Zogg, Churchman, Magee, Fowler, Glover, Hudson, McGuyre, Jones, Carman, Douglass, Herdner, Merryman, Scott, Carter, Cree, Miller, Buckley, Reeves, Green, Gregsby, Fisher, McConnell, George, Henderson, Hanna, Creacraft, McGee, Lee, Beall, Hinkson, and Clayton."

This is an attempt to correlate the happenings of the descendants of William and Rosannah Smith.

 

Most of this information was compiled by Anna Wells Byhanna.  In 1950, after working with John J. Davis on another genealogy, she decided to try collecting material.  She gathered notes, letters, and articles from her mother's collection and with help from Adah Lauck Pilchard and Allie McAddo, she began.  She assembled what she had into an outline form and asked others for help. She toured the area cemeteries, Brooke County and Ohio County Court House Records, the edition of the Brooke County Record published by Jacobs and Murphy in 1883, and put ads in newspapers in Iowa, Illinois, and Arizona asking for help in locating relatives of people known to have lived in those areas.  There was a Great Smith Reunion held in 1888 at the home of Mary Ann "Aunt Moll" Hunter on McAdoo Ridge in Wellsburg.  An account of this reunion was published in the local paper and included a listing of the family of Andrew and Jane Green Smith.  This was a big help in approximating dates and birth orders.

The following information was given by Rosalyn Gibbs, 468 W. Davis Blvd. Tampa, FL, 33606.   Her cousin Kathleen sent it to her.

 

William F. Smith, of Maryland, was a member of the Christopher Gist surveying party, which surveyed "West Augusta," a part of Western Virginia, beyond the Alleghenies, for the Washingtons, Lees, Fairfaxes, and others where they proposed to establish the Fourteenth Colony; but which came to naught by the approaching storm of the Revolutionary War.  William F. Smith married Rosanna Bosman or Bozman, daughter of Edward Bozman of Maryland.  In the spring of 1796, with his bride and father-in-law, he started for what is now Brooke County, W.Va., to establish a homestead.  For one cause or another the party was delayed and did not arrive at Independence, Pa., at the edge of Brooke County until November.  Fall had set in, the weather bad, and they sought shelter in a sugar camp shack near Independence.  Rosanna's time had come and a son was born to her and William F. Smith in the sugar grove shack.  The son was named Edward Smith, who married Catherine James, and is our grandfather.  He was a physician, a minister and legislator serving several terms in the Virginia legislature in the 1840's.  He gave to the Franklin Community, Booke County, a cemetery, school house and church and secured from the Va. legislature the franchise for the now Penn. Railroad from Wheeling to Pittsburgh.  William F. Smith established his home on what is now Genteel Ridge, and in 1797, he and others "threw" together a log hut on Pierce's Run to be used for school and religious purposes.  Some years later they built a Stone Chapel for school and church for use of Presbyterians, Methodists and Baptists.  This was probably the first stone or brick school house and church built west of the Alleghenies.  The Richardson family lived in or near Independence, Pa., and that is how William (General) and Sam (Doctor) married Sarah and Rebecca.  I do not know much of the Richardson family history.  Now as to the Richardson branch.  I thought I could (can't read what is written) Isaac, but am unable to find the data.  It belonged to Mother.  My memory, never very good, is not as trustworthy as it used to be.  However, I feel certain that Uncle (Col. W.P.) Richardson was born at Independence, Pa., then Williamsburg, Pa.  He was admitted to practice law at Wellsburg and did practice law there.  Short Creek, Franklin, West Liberty, Independence, Pa., are all only a few miles apart and blend into each other frequently when tracing early events.  West Liberty was the first county seat of Ohio County and I believe all the early records are now at the state university at Morgantown.  The librarian would be more apt to give you information on that than the county clerk of Brooke County.

 

William Smith and Rosanna Bozman had two sons, Andrew and Edward, one daughter (her first name has left my memory).  She married a man named Estep and became an early settler in Harrison County, Ohio.  There are many Esteps in that county and most of them are her descendants. 

 

Dr. Edward Smith was a Methodist minister of the Baltimore Conference before the Pittsburgh Conference was organized.  Preaching was just an avocation.  By profession he was a physician.  I have known quite a number of persons who knew him, some of them he brought into the world.  According to them he was a doctor of "some renown."  He was a member of the legislature of old Virginia, riding to Richmond over trails on horseback.  He secured the franchise, denied several times, for  what is now the Wheeling-Pittsburgh branch of the Penn. Railroad.  He gave to the community, a church, school house and cemetery, providing that there should be no charge for a burial lot.  It is now Franklin cemetery and many of the older and more prominent persons in early Brook County are buried there.  This is the inscription on the "little stone" above his resting place:  "Born Jan. 17, 1796, Died March 3d, 1874.  "Dr. Edward Smith, a minister, an eminent physician, a philanthropist, energetic and friend of the poor."  Catherine James, wife of Dr. Edward Smith, daughter of Robert and Catherine James, died July 9, 1845, aged 48 years, 6 mos. 11 days.  According to father, and he was 16 at her death, Aunt Kate and Aunt Emma, she was a "beautiful woman, with grace, charm and intelligence."  Aunt Kate became the mother of the children.  She was a brilliant woman and we all should reverence her memory for the sacrifice she made in being the mother of the family.  Rebecca H. Smith was the daughter of Dr. Edward Smith.

 

Dr. Edward Smith, born Jan. 17, 1796; died March 3, 1874.  Born in a sugar camp hut at Williamsburg, Pa., now Independence, Pa.  His parents were on their way from eastern Maryland to what is now Brooke County, W.Va. when the stork overtook them and they found shelter in the sugar camp hut where the baby arrived.  He died at Franklin, Va., now W.Va.  Catherine (James) Smith, wife of Dr. Edward Smith, daughter of Robert James and Catherine (McClure or McLure) James, born Dec. 29, 1797 and died July 9, 1845.

 

Dr. Edward Smith, son of W. F. Smith and Rosannah (Bozman) Smith.  Franklin is about three miles on the Washington Pike from Wellsburg.  Dr. Smith gave the Franklin Community its first school house, church and school house are now fine and modern and the cemetery is well kept.    (Additional information is given which we already have.  I believe she is elderly and tends to repeat).  All of the above are buried in Franklin Cemetery and their graves are marked.  Edward Bozman is buried on the original William F. Smith farm in Brooke County.   

 

Pierce's Chapel is a quaint stone structure which is probably the first brick or stone church schoolhouse built west of the Allegheny mountains.  The chapel was built around 1798. Given to community by William Smith in 1830, deed of record.  Robert James died Nov. 30, 1831, aged 73 years; Catherine (McLure) James died March 7, 1842, aged 76 years,  the parents of the wife of Dr. Edward Smith.  Both are buried in the James Cemetery near Finleyville, Pa.  They were probably  born at Fort Pitt.  The stone house and a stone church, which they built near Finleyville at about the close of the Revolutionary War, are standing and in use.  Pictures of the house and church are under separate cover.  The walls of the house are 24 inches thick and of the church 36 inches.  It was also a fort against the Indians.

                                                 WELLSBURG
                                    History of the town of Wellsburg,
                     in Brooke County, W.Va., formerly called Charlestown.

 

     The town of Charlestown, Ohio County, Va. was laid out probably in the fall of 1790, as at the January term, 1791, of the county court of Ohio county, Va., Charles Prather produced, in open court, the plat of the town of Charlestown, in Ohio county, which plat and survey was made by James Griffith, surveyor.
     Charles Prather bought a tract of land, containing 481 acres, on the 6th of March, 1788, from John Cox, heir at law of Friend Cox, and William McMahon, attorney for Joseph and Jonathan Cox, of Ohio county Va., for the sum of six hundred pounds, Pennsylvania currency, in hand paid.  This tract comprised all that portion of land lying south of the south boundaries of what is now known as Lazearville, to the waters of Buffalo creek, and from the Ohio river, east one hundred poles up Buffalo creek, and varying from that to the now Lazearville line, from two hundred and fifteen poles, and three hundred and twenty-six poles.  At the south end of this tract, on what is called the river bottom and the second bench, or smaller hills, lies the town of Wellsburg.
     The town derived its name, Charlestown, from Charles Prather, the proprietor, December 27, 1816.  By virtue of an act passed by the Legislature of Virginia, the name was changed from Charlestown to Wellsburg, for Alexander Wells, who married the only daughter of Charles Prather.  Mr. Prather had two sons, Henry and John.
     Charles Prather, and his wife Ruth, sleep the sleep that knows no waking until the great last day, in a beautiful knoll situated about six hundred feet southwest of, and in full view of their once earthly mansion.  Where the tomb is, is now the property of General I.H. Duval, originally located at the north end corner of the corporation limits, but now within the corporation, the same being extended September, 1877, by order of the Circuit Court, upon the prayer of a number of petitioners of the portion annexed.  .....  A tablet over the graves of Mr. and Mrs. Prather bears this inscription:
     "In memory of Charles Prather, proprietor of Wellsburg, died September 25, 1810, aged 77 years."
     "In memory of Ruth, consort of Charles Prather, died October 7, 1807, aged 75 years."

Notes for ROSANNAH BOZMAN:
from Mac Bozman....  
Edward is listed in St. Martin in the Fields as a widower  and married in 1732. He died "of a fever" in the same parish in 1734.  His widow, 2nd wife, died in the same parish work house in 1736.  Understandably, his son, Edward, a young boy gets into trouble by stealing a shirt in Westminster, of which St. Martins in the Fields is in, and thus cannot pay the fine and is deported to Baltimore.  London research shows that Bozmans (var. spellings) were in London, England by 1590 as Dutch immigrants employed as "silk-twisters".  Research shows a Henry, born 1653, William, born 1638, Raulf (Ralph) born 1629, Ambrose born 1645, and Thomas born 1650 as surviving sons of Henry Bosman who died in 1662, Saint Benet's Wharf Parrish.

As for silk-twisting, I think it might as well be lace making.  The Dutch word for that is "kantklossen".  The Dutch word for silk twisting is "zijde spinnen", silk is zijde and to twist is spinnen.  Check with the Dutch search engine, http://www.vindex.com

I don't think I have mentioned this before, but my company has customers worldwide.  In fact, one of my customers from the Netherlands is here in Birmingham with me.  I mentioned the Bozman-London connection and the fact that they were Dutch immigrants employed as "silk-twisters".  He immediately said, "Oh, they probably were not actually from Holland, but most likely from the town of Brugge in Flanders."  He went on to say that that part of Belgium is Dutch speaking.  Brugge apparently has been known for silk weaving since the middle ages.  He mentioned that they might also be from Gent, another town known for silk weaving.  Anyway, he has offered to visit these towns and search their registries if we like.  I may take him up on his offer.

 

                                      ...............................................................

 

from Mac Bozman   mbozman@SU.EDU

 

I was finally able to get a Dutch/English dictionary.  The Dutch Church records have two returns, similar to a census for 1617.  In one Henric Bosman is listed as "poore householder within the city" occupation as silketwister and dwelled here for thirty-seven years.  The other return lists a Hendrick Bosman as "sydereeders not buyten" the closest I could find as the modern Dutch buitenlands/buitenlanders as foreign/foreigner.  There was nothing for sydereeders.  Currently located in Belgium is the city of Mechelen which in the 1500 and 1600's was a noted lace-making center.  Belgium was a part of Holland until 1830.

Hello, my name is Mac Bozman and this is part of my line.  Edward (1) Bozman, transported to Md. 1741 (Peter Coldham's Book: The Complete Book of Emigrants, 1607 - 1776 & Emigrants in Bondage, 1614 - 1775), crime of stealing a shirt, and could not pay the fine.  He was sentenced in February of 1741 and was transported to Maryland aboard the Speedwell or Mediterranean on April of 1741. He did well in Baltimore County, MD, and owned several farms and three slaves.  He left a silver or gold pocket watch to one of his sons.  Eventually most all of the different sons and daughters and families left for Brooke County VA (WV) after Edward's death in 1797.  They did not all go together, starting in about 1805 and continued through the 1820's.   Most of them went on to Morgan County, McConnellsville, Ohio.    It appears he married three times, 1) Eliza, in 1743, daughter Margaret born 13 November 1744, both appear to die young; 2) married to Rosannah/Rose Lyon 27 Feb. 1749; 3) married to Francis Sanders/Saunders March 25, 1773.  Edward's will of 1797 (misfiled under Bosman), lists children: James, Wilkes, Willliam, Edward (2), Sarah, Eliz., Kerrenhoppeck, Mary.  His second wife had Edward (2), Rosannah, Sarah, and Eliza.  His third wife was probably the mother of Kerenhoppeck, Mary, James, and Wilkes, born 15 August 1776, and William, born  September 5, 1791.  Edward (2) moves to Brooke County, VA (now WV) about 1805 and later to Morgan County, Ohio.  Wilkes married about 1803 in MD to Ruth Royston (possible Risdon) which is my line (abr. ml)  They had Edward (3 ml) b.c. 1805 m. 1/2 cousin Kerenhoppeck Bozman, daughter of Edward (2).  He died 1827 in Brooke County  VA (now WV).  His widow Kerrenhoppeck and two children move to Morgan County, Ohio.  She remarried to Ignaustius Wheeler.  Other children of Wilkes and Ruth are: John Royston, 7 March 1807 - 22 March 1890; Frances S. 25 January 1809 - 14 September 1847; Ruth 16 April 1811, died 17 June 1845; Elizabeth 1816 - 14 August 1846; William 11 December 1813.  The wife/mother Ruth Royston Bozman died by 1819 in Baltimore County, MD.  Wilkes joined his 1/2 brother Edward (2) in Brooke County, VA (now WV) and later moves to Morgan County, OH, McConnellsville.
My research in London has probable father of Edward (1), "the transported" as Edward (z) born 1693.  Also, the London research shows Bozman (var. spellings) in London (city) by 1590 as Dutch immigrants employed as "silk-twisters".  I have some good research through 1600's, then gaps in 1700's.  Interestingly 1600's Bozmans feature Henry, born 1653, William, born 1638, Raulf (Ralph) born 1629, Ambrose born 1645 and Thomas born 1650 as surviving sons of Henry Bozman, died in 1662, St. Benet's Wharf Parrish.

Information supplied from Mac Bozman, August 26, 1999:

 

Hello Richard,

 

I received your packet.  You have done a super job on your Smiths.  I came across three tidbits while in Baltimore last week.  Edward Bozman, 1768, signed a petition against moving the county seat from Joppa to Baltimore....Archives of MD., V. 61, p. 528.  Edward Bozman, 1790, paid subscription for minister's salary at Saint James P.E. Church (Presbyterian) at Forks of Gunpowder.  And lastly, Edward Bozman 20 August 1797, age 30, buried by John Coleman, minister of Saint James P.E. Church.  This is from a file card index transcribing lots of different original records.  We know Edward was much older and we suspect that someone misread 80 for 30.  We all know how old handwriting can be difficult.  That really does work well as he would have been age twenty-four when he was transported to MD, and his father Edward would be twenty-four in in 1717, a good age for being married and having a child. 

 

Best wishes,
Mac

Edward Bozman came early to the Eastern shores of Maryland.  Here he had a son William Bozman born Sept. 5, 1791 and a daughter Rosanna (Rosannah).  Rosanna (Rosannah) married  William Smith (marriage record in Baltimore) and they came to Pierce's Run, Brooke County, Va (WV) with her father Edward and her brother William.  Edward Bozman owned land here 1811-1826 in Pierce's Run 1805-1811.  William married Elizabeth Wheeler on Sept. 4, 1828.  She was born August 13, 1811.  They had a son James born July 20, 1829 in Brooke County VA (WV)  Elizabeth died there in 1833.  James was their only child.  In 1842 William Bozman with his thirteen year-old son, James moved to Ohio, possibly first to Athens county or McConnellsville, Morgan County, Ohio.  William married 2nd on March 4, 1847 to Jane (Unknown) in Athens County, Ohio.  (Could Edward be her brother and not her father?  I believe Edward died in Baltimore Coounty.)

 

                         .......................................................

 

We don't have proof who the sons were.  One source says Edward and the other (Jeanne Crews  jcrews@eriecoast.com) says William.  She says this Edward could have been the one in Talbot County in 1727 or he could have been the one who was transported to Maryland in 1741.  Based on the marriage date of 1749, it would seem more likely that he is the one who came later.  There was a William Madison Bozman who was born 1846 in Licking County, Ohio.  His mother was Elizabeth Parr and his father was _______ Bozman.  Somehow he got to Logan County, Ohio.  William Madison married 1st Lucy Jane Jolley.  He married 2nd to Eudora Carson.  Eudora died after the birth of their son Henry Elton.  William Madison married 3rd to Martha Ann Hickman.  Their children were Ora, Mayme, Lena, Minnie, Nellie, Lola, Charles, and Infanta.  Henry Elton married Ida Skidmore in Logan County in 1895.  Their children were Clarence, Frank, Helen, Dennis, and John.  John is the grandfather of Jeanne Crews.

 

Another name is Sarah Ellen Bozman.   Jeanne Crews writes, "I know very little about Sarah Ellen Bozman.  I do know she had a sister they called Happy, unsure of her real name, but believe it may have been something like Karahapageorge, who married William Davis' brother Hiram.  Happy and Sarah are both buried at Fairview Cemetery, Morgan County, OH.  Sarah I know was born in Brooke County, VA, in 1834 but do not know who her parents were.

 

Our Smith anthology, Family of William "The Maryland Dutchman" and Rosannah Bozman Smith, says that there was an Edward Bozman in the Brooke County area also.  Jeanne Crews says that her parents, Edward and Rosannah (Lyon) Bozman followed them to the new territories.  This could be her brother because I believe her father died in Baltimore County, Maryland.

We know that John Lewis Bozeman and his wife Anna Tillman (?) were in Mecklenburg/Lunenburg County, VA for a number of years about 1760-1770 or so.  The information I have listed below could indicate that John Lewis Bozeman and Edward Bozeman were possibly related.  There would seem to be a Bozman-Lewis-Yancey connection.  I have also included information about Holloway since Philemon, son of John Lewis Bozman, married Susan Holloway.

There was an Edward Bozeman who was a sea captain in about 1777-1780 or so.  His residence was in Broadway, Virginia which is in Rockingham, Virginia.  There was also a Henry Bosman in Rockingham County at about this time.

There is a probate record from 1727 for a John Harkin of Talbot County that lists an Edward Bozman as next of kin.  The same record lists Thomas Bozman as a creditor of the estate.  So are these two different men?  Gee, another mystery about the MD Bozman family, how unusual...

This may have nothing to do with our family, but I have included it anyway.

 

....Coming north to recover possession of some property which he had inherited in the vicinity of Elkton, Maryland, he engaged in the dry goods business in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, shortly before the War of 1812.  The sudden termination of the war proved disastrous to him as it did to thousands of others, and with a small balance of his capital remaining he removed to New Hope, Pennsylvania, opening a store in partnership with George Bozman in a part of the dwelling house built in 1808 by a Mr. Coolbaugh.  This was subsequently remodeled and occupied by Mr. Murray until his death, and later by his son, William H. Murry.

 

In the Rosalyn Gibbs information, Edward Bozman is mentioned as Rosannah's father instead of as her brother. The notes say that Edward is buried on the original William F. Smith farm in Brooke County.

 

                  ................................................................................

 

Edward Bozman married a Rozanna Lyon on February 27, 1749 .  This is recorded in the St. John's and St. George's Parish Registers 1696-1851.   These Parishes are just north of Baltimore County.  Perhaps there is a connection.

 

                  ..................................................................................

 

A Memoir of John Leeds Bozman, the first historian of Maryland, by Samuel A. Harrison (Fund Publications, Maryland Historical Society, No. 16) says the Bozman "family was Dutch origin, having had for its founder in America William Bozman, the immigrant.... He is said to have been in the Chesapeake as early as 1627.  He was later seated in that portion of the peninsula which afterwards became Somerset County and this may be regarded as the home or solar of the family."

Bosman (also Bozman, Bossman).  William Bosman (see ante. p. 326) married first Bridget (Unknown) who died in July of 1660; second, Eleanor Mattocks, widow (Mattox, Maddox; see post, Maddox).  Eleanor married third to James Caine (see post, Caine).  William and Bridget Bosman had issue: 
     (1) John (1650-1716) justice of the peace and presiding justice, 1713
          in Sommerset; soroner; high sheriff; member of the Lower House
          Maryland Assembly, 1707-10 (Archive in Maryland);  He married
          Blandina Risdon.
     (2) William 1655
     (3) George, 1659-1706/7 who married Jane (Unknown) widow of William
          Jones (see post, Jones of Monie).  Mrs. Jane Bosman married third
          to Luke Valentine.
     (4) Bridget, 1653 who married George Betts (see ante, Betts).
     (5) Anne, 1657 who probably married George Downes (see post, Downes).
     (6) Katherine, born prior to February of 1660/61 who married first to John
          Nellson and died after January 11, 1670.  They had (a) John Nellson;
          (b) Bridget Nellson.  Katherine married second to John Lawes and had
          (a) William Lawes; (b) John Lawes; (c) Robert Lawes; (d) Mary Lawes.
     (7) Mary Bosman (querry: was she a child by Bosman's second wife,
          Eleanor?) (IL; Md. Cal. Wills, I, p. 31; EB 9, p. 57; O 10, pp. 706-8; AB
          (in O 0 ), p. 353; DT, p. 82, and AZ, pp. 177, 216 and 482).

 

Liber IKL give John George, Wm., Bridget and Anne Bosman as children of William and Eleanor Bosman, but dates of births prove them children of William and Bridget Bosman.  Katherine Bosman is proved by deed gift, February, 1660/61, from Mrs. Katherine Scarburgh; this gift made at time pre-nuptial contract between William Bosman and Mrs. Eleanor Mattock's (or Maddox)
(see Richardson's Sidelights on Md. History, II, pp. 264-7.  Northampton County Virginia records, Vol. IX, pp. 92 and 144, give Mrs. Eliza Mattocks; this is a clerical error; her name was Eleanor.

 

Bloyce (Bloys, Bloyse).  Thomas Bloyse was the overseer of the will of William Bosman in 1664.  Frances Bloys (daughter of Thomas) married William Wright on December of 1669 (Md. Cal. Wills, I, p. 31, IKL).

 

James Caine, in Manokin, August, 1666; married about 1666-67 to  Eleanor, widow of William Bosman.  James Caine's will is dated December 12, 1667, probably April 15, 1670, devised some personalty to John Avery and residue of estate to wife, Elllinor Caine, executrix (Md. Cal. Wills, p. 54).  Mrs Eleanor Caine died on November 17, 1694.

 

We find among the members of the Lower House of Assembly contributing to the fund of the school, Captain William Whittington and Matthew Scarborough, 1,000 pounds of tobacco each, and Thomas Dickson (Dixon) and John Bozman, 400 pounds of tobacco each.  These four men represented Somerset County in the Lower House of Assemble in 1694.  Whittington and Bozman were both "Churchmen."  Matthew Scarborough lived in Mattapony Hundred, on the seaboard side (now Worcester County), was a "Churchman" and a member of the first vestry of Snow Hill Parish.  Thomas Dixon (son of the uncompromising old Quaker, Amrose Dixon, of Annemessex) had become a "Churchman".

Richard,

 

I was interested to hear that you have Brooke County ties.  Are you from this area?  I have done family research for several years and have some information on the Bozman family.  Did you know that Frank Chapman from Wellsburg?  He died a few years ago but in the 1970's did a book called  HOMES ALONG THE WASHINGTON PIKE.  He tells of some of the older houses along the Pike and
included some photos.  He has a picture of the old Bozman log cabin along with some sketchy information.  His grandmother was Elizabeth Bozman who married Nathaniel Chapman, his grandfather.  I don't know if you know of this.  There are lots of Smith's in Brooke County.  Would be interested in knowing how you're related.

 

(There are two photos of the Bozman property.  One is a log cabin and the other is the spring house.  The log cabin was located on Genteel Ridge on the farm of George W. Bowers and was built around 1800.  The house was torn down around 1930.  The pictures were taken around 1899 with the following:  from left to right - Zella B. Hood, ??, Roda Smith, Bert and Tom Bowers, G. W. Bowers, Marsha Patterson (daughter of Rev. Patterson), Elizabeth Bowers, Mary Bowers (upstairs window), Mrs. Patterson (downstairs window), and Mrs. Bessie Smith Bowers.

 

                             .............................................................................

 

Some Bozmans are mentioned in the Family Archive #400 Marriage Index:  Selected Counties of Ohio, 1789-1850.  I cannot connect these Bozmans to our files.  They are:

 

     Edward Bozman married April 18, 1847 in Morgan County, Ohio, to Jane Hindman
     Eliza Bozman married Sept. 30, 1841 in Morgan County, Ohio to Samuel Brothers
     Levi Bozman married Oct. 23, 1849 in Licking County, Ohio to Elizabeth Creely
     Mahala Bozman married July 10, 1844 in Morgan County, Ohio to John Hindman
     Margaret Bozman married May 23, 1848 in Morgan County, Ohio to Allen Rush

                                              HISTORICAL STORIES, BROOKE CO., WV

 

                                               HISTORY TOLD THROUGH OBITUARY

 

On the 18th of August, 1872 at her residence near Athens, in Harrison County, Ohio, Mrs. Sarah E. Estep, relict of John Estep.  In the 85th year of her age.

 

The deceased was an old resident of Brooke County, and entitled to more than a passing notice.  She was born in Baltimore County, Maryland in the year 1787 and came west with her father, William Smith, who was one of the old Maryland emigration of that day and settled in the edge of Washington County, Pennsylvania, in the year 1795.  Mr. Smith shortly afterwards moved with his family into Brooke County, and located on the ridge, where reside some of his descendants to this day.  At that time, the whole county almost was an unbroken wilderness; only three families, Henry Hervey, Joseph Gist and James Thompson resided in the neighborhood.  The Indians had hardly relinquished their claims upon their hunting grounds and the deer, the turkey, the bear, panther and buffalo were in full possession.  Then was the day of the spinning wheel and hand loom, the predecessors of the Piano, and to their music, many a lusty settler closed his eyes, while the stars shone upon him through the chinks in the cabin roof.  In this art, the subject of our sketch is said to have been proficient.  In the year 1812, she married John Estep, of Washington County, Pennsylvania, and in 1825 removed to Ohio where she resided until her death.  She was a member of a large family, of whom three sons and a daughter survive, and was sister to Dr. Edward and Andrew Smith of this county.  In 1850 she became a member of the M.E. Church, and closed her eyes upon this world at a ripe old age, in the happy hope of a blessed immortality.

 

                                                   .........................................................................

 

I am not sure about all the information above.   William Smith, the Maryland Dutchman has Sarah as the first born.  Originally I had Sarah's birth date as 1797 but I will change it based upon the article above.

Sarah and John are buried at Stiers Cemetery.  I visited the cemetery in October of 2011.  Take County Route 36 just on the west side of Harrisville, Ohio.  Stay on that road until you come up to a hilltop which probably was strip mined.  There are no trees.  On your left you will see a sign Stiers Cemetery Road.  The cemeter is just a short distance from there situation on a hillside.

Notes for WILLIAM ESTEP, DR.:
from:  History of the Upper Ohio Valley, page 683

 

William Estep, M.D., one of the oldest physicians in the practice in Belmont County, Ohio, was born in Washington County, PA, son of John and Sarah Estep. The father was a blacksmith and farmer, in straitened circumstances, and at an early age William was called on to assist his father in the Smithy.  He had, however, when eight years old decided to be a physician when he grew up.  He would assume that character in his childhood games and when called on to help his father he would manage to work so poorly that finally in exasperation the father drove him from the forge with an injunction never to come back.  He at once entered Franklin College, New Athens, Ohio, and attended three years when lack of funds compelled him to stop his studies.  He then worked awhile until he had enough money to complete his course and in the same way managed to gain his medical education.  In 1840, he settled at Lloydsville and began a practice which has ever since continued.  In this protracted period he has always had the confidence and respect of the community.  He is now one of the Directors of Franklin College in New Athens, Ohio.  In September 1862, he enlisted in the Civil War was a surgeon of the 126th Ohio Reg. and served two years when he was compelled by sickness, terminating in heart disease to accept an honorable discharge at Annapolis in 1864.  He was captured at Martinsburg, VA and was a prisoner of war for seven weeks.  He is one of the authors of the LAW FOR THE BOARD OF PENSION EXAMINERS.   Dr. Estep is a member of the Masonic order and was a member of the I.O.O.F.  In his practice he has instructed many pupils who have all made a success of their profession.  Dr. Estep is a lover of fine horses and has done more to introduce throughbreds than any other man in Belmont County, Ohio.

 

Some information was taken from the book by Erving E. Beauregard, OLD FRANKLIN THE ETERNAL TOUCH;  A HISTORY OF FRANKLIN COLLEGE.  In 1907 the baccalaureates climbed to fifteen, one of whom was Arthur E. Estep, druggist. In the 1912 commencement they had 14 baccalaureates and Paul C. Estep was part of the class.

Notes for EDWARD SMITH, DR.:
Edward Smith was a physician and was called affectionately "Dr. Eddie".  He studied medicine under Dr. Joseph Doddridge in Wellsburg and later graduated from a medical school in Baltimore, MD in 1819.  He practiced medicine in the panhandle of what is now West Virginia, the Independence, PA area, and Jefferson County in Ohio from 1819 to 1871.  He also served as a delegate to the Virginia Legislature from Brooke County, Virginia and in 1867 served the West Virginia Legislature as a delegate.  Dr. Eddie donated the land along Washington Pike (Wellsburg) for the Methodists to erect a church house.  He also donated the logs to build it.  Franklin Cemetery was a part of the land donated as it was the custom in those days to bury on church ground.  This house proved too small so in 1854 the building was torn down and a larger one built.  The second church house was blown down by an Easter storm on March 20, 1902.  The congregation built a more substantial one across the road in 1904.  This is the site of the present Franklin United Methodist Church.  In this building there is a stained glass window dedicated to Dr. Edward and Andrew Smith with the inscription, "God loveth a cheerful giver."  Edward and Catharine are buried in Franklin Cemetery.  On the tombstone, Edward's wife's name is spelled Catharine, but in the courthouse where she signed to transfer deeds it is spelled Katherine.  Named below are nine of the eleven children tradition says that Dr. Eddie and Catharine had.  Franklin is about three miles east of Wellsburgh, WV, on Washington Pike. 
                              
     A historical sketch of the donor of the ground who was a notable man is worthy of insertion here, for the history of the Franklin First Church near Wellsburg, W.Va. is the history of its people, and any history of Franklin Church would be incomplete without a record of his generosity and lifelong service to both Church and community.  He was a fine Christian country doctor of a type that is fast passing.  For many years he had the care of the health of a large section of this country.  The territory over which he rode night and day as oft to the cabin of the poor as to the dwelling place of the rich man, never charging the poor.   He literally gave his life for others.  Everybody loved Dr. Smith.  He is buried in the cemetery that he gave for others, and this inscription may be read on his monument:  "Dr. Edward Smith born 1796, died 1874.  He was a Christian, an eminent physician, a philanthropist, energetic, and a friend of the poor."
    
     But it is not only for his ministrations as a physician that Dr. Smith is remembered.  His public services as a law-maker and a benefactor in various other realms raise him high in the estimation of the residents of Franklin community.  He served in the Virginia legislature a number of terms before the Civil War, and was especially active on the questions of transportation, free schools and slavery.  He was also a member of the fourth legislature of West Virginia.  The franchise for the railway from Pittsburgh to Steubenville was secured largely through his efforts.  He was also an ordained minister of the Baltimore Conference.  He gave to the Franklin Community, Brooke County, a cemetery, school house and church and.  The last of the eight children of Dr. Smith and his wife, Catherine James Smith,- Mrs Emma Smith Wright - who was born in Brooke County on November 5th, 1833 died at her home in Iowa, Sunday, Feb. 7, 1932.

Later he moved to Wellsburg and still later to West Liberty, where he stayed until his death.  He was a member of the Virginia Legislature at the time of the Succession of that state from the Union.  Afterwards he became a prominent Republican and leader in the new state of W.Va.  He served in the West Virginia House of Delegates in 1867.  He married Catherine James in 1820 and had several children, one of whom became a college president of Ohio.

     This issue of the Brooke County Historical Review will feature a much longer article then is usually found in these pages because the item touches upon many issues of not only historical interest but is also a most eloquent declamation of many issues that are still alive in the late 20th century.

 

     Dr. Edward Smith represented Brooke County and Hancock County in the Virginia House of Delegates.  His speech was occasioned by the fact that the people of Brooke and Hancock counties had petitioned the Virginia legislature for the right of way for a railroad connection between Pittsburgh and Steubenville.  The petition was referred to a committee.  The committee reported by resolution, "That is inexpedient to grant the prayer of the petitioners."  Dr. Smith was trying to amend that resolution by this speech as reported in "The Daily Commercial Journal" published in Pittsburgh on August 18, 1852.

 

                           Pittsburgh & Steubenville Railroad
                               Right of Way Through Virginia

 

Remarks of Dr. Edward Smith, in the Virginia House of Delegates, May 27, 1852, on his motion to reverse the report of the Committee on Roads, declaring it inexpedient to grant the right of way for a Railroad, as prayed for by the citizens of Brooke and Hancock counties.

 

Mr. Speaker:

 

In making the motion which I have, to reverse the report of the Committee, by declaring that the prayer of the petitioners for a right of way for the construction of a Railroad through the territory of Virginia, "is expedient", I am aware of the difficulties which meet me at the threshold, and oppose the just demands of the people I represent...............(speech is twelve pages long).............Sir, if the spirit of the old apostle of liberty, Patrick Henry, were this evening on a visit to this law-making department of the government, and saw how we had been denied our just rights, and heard that we were told, as the representatives of Wheeling has told us, that if we should assume the responsibility of making a road upon our own land, with our own money, for our own good, for the public's and the nation's good, we should be visited with a legal process to restrain us - his spirit would waft its flight through the trackless either to the land of the departed patriots and announce to them that equal rights and equal privileges were no longer principles held sacred by their degenerate sons.  Now, sir, I do not believe that such is the feeling of members of this General Assembly.  I, therefore, call upon them as good republicans to rebuke this dark and barbarous spirit of selfishness, and to give equal rights and privileges to every portion of this commonwealth; and upon the present occasion, I ask them to "come up to the help of the Lord against the mighty."

Rev. Dr. Smith says:  The first court for the county of Ohio was held at Black's Cabin.  There is every reason to believe that was the first civil court held in the valley of the Mississippi.  On the 7th of April, 1777, the court ordered a court-house and jail be erected.  Teh first attorneys admitted to practise in the court were Philip Pendleton and George Brent, on the 2nd of November 177?.  Mr. Pendleton was appointed the commonwealth's attorney.  In a work by the Rev. Joseph Smith, D.D/., entitled "Old Redstone," which contains historical sketches of Western Presbyterianism - its early ministers, its perilous times, and its first records, find that the Presbytery of Redstone met on the 25th of October 1782, at Dunlap Creek, and one minister was appointed as a su? at Ohio court-hhouse.  This place, says the Rev. Dr. Smith, was some miles west of the present town of Washington, and was a seat of justice under the government of Virginia, as all Washington County, together with Fayette and Greene and a large portion of Allegheny and Westmoreland counties was claimed by that State and considered a part of Augusta County, Virginia.  The records whow no other appointment for a supply at this place.

Frances, his sister, mentions him in a letter to her sister.  ".....when I look out and see the men mowing the grass some ploughing their corn it brings to memory the days of yore when I would see ____ (poor) Will  ____ing (toiling) day after day; and now he is gone and left the fruits of his labor, when I was there every direction I would look there I would see something he had toiled for, it appeared to me that William I had seen.  I had flatter myself with the idea of him getting well and seeing him and as I had often said I would get to sing with him once more; but his is no more."

 CAPTION FOR PHOTOGRAPH OF ANDREW SMITH AND FAMILY   ARRAYED IN FRONT OF A FRAME HOUSE WITH PICKET FENCE

 

 This is a picture of Andrew Smith (b. 1802) and his wife Jane Green Smith (b. 1802) with  4 of their 10 children.   Because Andrew's house was a brick structure rather than a frame one, it was  probably taken at the home of one of their children, most likely that of Mary Anne "Moll" Smith and her husband Johns "Honce" Hunter,  Brooke County, West Virginia.  I calculate the date as 1876, just shortly before Andrew's wife Jane Green Smith died of "dropsy" at the end of November.  More specifically, in either May, September or early October, because of the leaves and because all the older children are absent and are probably in school, as would be Sarah Ellen Smith Hunter, who became a teacher after her husband and four of their sons died in 1863.   

 

 Based primarily on the ages of the grandchildren and a comparison with later pictures of some of the people,  I believe that the right-most couple (#1 & #2) are my great grandparents, Clarence Andrew Clay Smith and Almira McCreary Smith; that the next couple (#3 & #4) are Edward Jackson Smith and Eva Daugherty Smith; that the left-most couple (#5 & #6) are John Estep Smith and Permelia Green Smith; and that the couple (#7 & #8) behind Andrew and Jane are Johns Hunter and Mary Anne "Moll" Smith Hunter.   The boy with the horse is, from his location behind them, Edward McClellan Smith, age 13, son of John & Permelia Smith but the lone horse could signify he came alone and he is Nathaniel Clarence Hunter, age 13, son of Nathaniel Hunter (deceased) and Sarah Ellen Smith Hunter. 

 

 This is the rationale that finally concluded a couple of years work: By 1871, 2 of Andrew and Jane's 10 children had died (George White Smith and Catherine Smith) and two more (Rose Smith Castner and Elizabeth Smith Mars)  had moved away from Brooke County.  Sarah Smith Hunter had been left a widow, and was teaching school on Pierce's Run, so Moll was the only one of Andrew's daughters that could be in the picture.  Of the sons, the three in the picture had to be either William Green Smith, John Estep Smith, Edward Jackson Smith or Clarence Andrew Clay Smith.  
 
 My strongest feeling was that #2 was my great grandmother Almira McCreary.  Enlarged, her face reminds me of my mother (Almira's granddaughter).  A later picture of Almira (around 1890?)  does not show that resemblance but her husband C.A.C. in the same picture is a good match for #1.  So I needed to match up the two children with C.A.C. and Almira's children.  I needed a girl older than a boy. I used the rhyme my granddad Cliff Smith taught me for the birth order of the children: "Ally, Rosie, Charlie, Josie, Georgianna and the baby" (the baby being Cliff.).  Cliff wasn't born until 1879 so the rhyme gave me only one girl-boy match: Rosie and Charlie.  In addition, the little boy looks like the Uncle Charl I remember from the 1940's.   In the picture the little boy appears to be about 3, which would make the year 1876.  In 1876  Rosie was 6.    So far so good  to conclude that  #1 and #2 are  Clarence Andrew Clay Smith and Almira McCreary Smith with their children Rose and Charles.

 

 The main problem in distinguishing brothers is that they tend to look alike.  Fortunately, some have more hair than others.  E.J. Smith in later years had flowing locks and William Green Smith also kept his hair, so that ruled them out as #1 or #8.  E.J.'s wife Eva was described as "dark" and her later pictures show it to be so, so she was ruled out as the light-haired #6 and that ruled him out as #5.  All that's left for E.J. is #3, and to my eye, E.J.'s  later pictures resemble #3 most, and his age in 1876 (34) is a match.  On the other hand,  E.J. had graduated from Bethany College in 1873 and he does not look like a college graduate in this picture.  Maybe it was a dress-down day.   Eva could well be #4; the woman is "dark" and her age (22 in 1876) is OK.   Now comes the big problem: In 1876,  E.J. and Eva had a two year old boy and a baby (born in April) , not a 4 year old boy and a 3-year old girl.   Try an earlier date would not solve the problem.   After wrestling with this problem for the longest time I decided that perhaps the two children with #3 and #4 are not theirs.   

 

 Leaving E.J. and Eva for a moment to look at  #5 and #6, (with the baby), two of the surviving Smiths had babies in 1876: William Green Smith with his second wife, Nancy Cole McCready Smith, had  Kate; and John Estep Smith and his wife Permelia Green Smith had their last child, John E. Smith.   In 1876 William Green Smith was 48 years old and Nancy was 44; too old, I believe, to be #5 & #6.   On the other hand John Estep Smith was 39 and Permelia Green only 34, which make them fit the apparent ages better.   In addition, the Greens are noted for their high foreheads and blonde hair, which also matches the mother holding the baby.   So I concluded that #5 & #6 are John Estep Smith  and Permelia Green Smith, with their child John E. Smith. 

 

 The remaining problem was how to account for the two children with E.J. Smith and his wife (#3 & #4).  Most likely they are John William Hunter, age 6 and Mary Elizabeth Hunter, age 5,  the youngest children of the hosts ( Johns Hunter and Moll Smith Hunter):
 
 The only doubts I have about these identifications is about Aunt Moll and Uncle Honce, but they are the logical choice.  The problem is that although they look like ordinary farm folks here, they appear some 15 years later in a clearly identified studio portrait with their children and Moll is much slimmer and more elegant looking, resembling in this picture her sister Elizabeth Harrison Smith Mars rather than the short chunky Sarah Ellen Smith Hunter that she resembles in the 1876 photograph.  Too, Honce also is changed, all properous looking and decked out in fine clothes.   Perhaps Andrew left them some money or maybe the farm did well.  At any rate, I will stick with my identification of them as the hosts in the 1876 picture.

5.  CATHARINE3 SMITH (WILLIAM2, ANDREW (ANDREAS SCHMIT/ SCHMIDT)1) was born 1805 in Franklin Community, Brooke County, VA, and died November 08, 1842 in Brooke County, VA.  She married NATHANIEL HUNTER March 25, 1824 in Brooke County, VA.  He was born 1801 in PA, and died December 27, 1878 in Brooke County, WV.

 

Notes for CATHARINE SMITH:
Catherine and her husband Nathaniel Hunter are buried in Franklin Cemetery near Wellsburg, WV.  We think that following Catharine's death in 1842, Nathaniel Hunter married a Harriet who died October 12, 1855 in her 41st year, and that they had a daughter Harriet E. Hunter born Sept. 16, 1853 and died Jan. 11, 1872

 

Catherine's name is spelled Katharine on the Brooke County court marriage
record.

 

The Marriage record can be found in Brooke County VA/WV Marriages 1797-1874 as Katharine Smith to Nathaniel Hunter on 25 March 1824; Book 2A page 38 with T. Beeks officiating.

 

Notes for NATHANIEL HUNTER:
The 1850 U.S. Census, Brooke County, WV, District 3 lists:

 

Nathaniel Hunter, age 49, farmer, born in PA
Harriet Hunter, age 34, born in VA
William Hunter, age 22, miller, born in VA
Thomas Hunter, age 14, born in VA
Catharine Hunter, age 12, born in PA
Campbell Hunter, 10, born in PA
Smith Hunter, age 8, born in VA
Sarah Hunter, age 6, born in VA
Margaret Hunter, age 20, born in VA

 

The next household lists:

 

John Hunter, age 25, farmer, born in VA
Ruth Hunter, age 22, born in VA

 

                                           ...........................................

 

The 1860 U.S. Census, Virginia, Brooke County, Unknown Townships, #394 lists the children but two are born after the death of the mother.. Those two are Nathan C. Hunter, age 8 in 1860 and Harriet E. Hunter, age 6 in 1860.  The 1850 U.S. Census lists Nathaniel, age 49, and Harriet Hunter, age 34.  I bet this is his second wife.

 

                               ...............................................................

 

Did Nathaniel remarry after his first wife died?  Notice the 1850 census where there is a Harriet Hunter, age 34.

 

                                   ..........................................................

 

There are only four children about which we have dates or any information.
The last four names (John, Rachael, Campbell, and Sarah) are incomplete.
We can't find any records of these in the courthouse or the cemetery.

Obituary:

 

Mrs. Harriet Lynn

 

Mrs. Harriet Lynn was born in Washington County, Pa., Sept. 25th 1819, and died at her home near Shepherdstown, Feb. 1909.  She was the daughter of John and Sarah Estep and came to Ohio with her parents in the spring of 1824.  She lived on what is known as the Estep farm until the fall of 1836,  when she was united in marriage to Taylor Lynn and moved to the adjoining farm where she was living at the time of her death.  She was the mother of six children, three of which departed this life in childhood.  The remaining three are Estep, who lives on an adjoining farm, William and Louisa at home.

 

She was a woman whom every one respected and one to whom anyone might go to for advice, retaining her mental faculties until the last.  She was a loving mother in her home, always loved, and respected by her children and every one about her.  She spent her whole life in this neighborhood and died without an enemy.  She united with the Methodist Episcopal Church at the age of sixteen and was a constant member of that church until her death, and whenever the weather and her health would permit, she attended service.  Of the older generation of Estep's and Lynn's she was the last one to depart this life.  Funeral services were held at her home Friday, Feb. 12, 1909, at one o'clock P.M.  She was laid to rest in the Stires Cemetery beside her husband who departed this life 21 years ago.

 

She will be greatly missed in the church and in the neighborhood, but nowhere so much as in her home by her two children who always went to her for advice and minister to her so kindly until the last, but they knew the time had come when they must part, and they gave her up to Him who had spared her so long to them.  She has gone to be with her Heavenly Father and loved ones gone before

                              John H. Estep, son of Andrew Estep

 

John H. Estep, dealer in drugs, notions, books, tobacco, etc., New Athens, Harrison County, was born in Short Creek Township, Harrison Co., Ohio, September 13, 1855, and is a son of Andrew Estep, also a native of Short Creek Township.  John Estep, grandfather of our subject, came to Harrison County from Pennsylvania, in which State he had married Sarah Smith, daughter of Edward Smith (Note:  This is not correct.  Sarah's father was William Smith.)  He settled in the woods of Short Creek Township, and died at the age of eighty-four or eighty-five years; his widow survived him some years, and died at about the same age.  Their family consisted of five children, viz.: Harrison, in Loydsville, Ohio; William, an M.D., also in Lloydsville; Robert, deceased; Harriet, Mrs Taylor Linn, in Short Creek Township, and Andrew

 

Andrew Estep grew up a farmer, was educated in the common schools, and in 1850 was married to Miss Sarah, daughter of Andrew and Martha (Nichol) Henderson, and a native of Belmont County, Ohio.  The Nichol family were of Scotch origin; from Scotland they passed to County Derry, Ireland, during the "persecution," and thence came to Cumberland County, Penn., in 1789.  Later they reached Westmoreland County, and about 1800 came to Colerain Township, Belmont Co., Ohio.  The maternal grandmother of our subject was Jeanette Nichol, born in 1801; her husband, Andrew Henderson, was born in 1798, and died in 1861.  The old Nichol family Bible was purchased in 1805, at a cost of fifteen dollars and twenty-five cents, of William Mathers, St. Clairsville, Ohio, and is a cherished heirloom.  Grandmother Nichol had the following named children:  Martha, John N., Annie, Agnes (wife of Thomas Love, in Aledo, Illionis), Margaret (Mrs. Robert C. McConnell, in Brady, Ohio), Mary J. (wife of John Mintur, in Shepherdstown, Ohio), Andrew Jackson (deceased), Sarah Henderson (mother of our subject), Isabelle (wife of John Anderson, in Iowa), Andrew (in Hardy, Neb.), Elizabeth (Mrs. R. W. Castle, in Iowa), Harriet (Mrs. John Sweeney, also in Iowa), Willliam T. (deceased), Thomas Jefferson and M. N. Henderson.  The family record now comprises fifty-seven grandchildren living, thirty-seven deceased; three hundred great-grandchildren living, sixty-six deceased; three hundred and eighty-eight great-great-grandchildren living, forty deceased; thirty-two great-great-great-grandchildren living. 

 

John's parents resided on the home place in Short Creek Township, thence moved to Steubenville, Ohio, and two years later, in 1874, proceeded to  Missouri, thence to Kansas, and then to kansas City, Mo., where the his father died in 1884, aged fifty-eight years;  he was a Freemason and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.  His widow, who was born in 1830, still resides in Kansas City, Mo.;  she is the mother of ten children, viz.:  Thomas B., an attorney in St. Louis, Mo.; Emma, Mrs. William Purviance, in Rosedale, Kansas; John H., our subject; James B., deceased; Harriet E., living with her mother in Kansas City; William C., Ella (Mrs. John Wolf), Andrew Smith and Sarah C., all in Kansas City, and Charles, residing with our subject, in New Athens, Ohio.  Mrs. Estep is a member of the Disciples Church, and is a firm believer in immersion, although her parents were members of the United Presbyterian Church.

 

John H. Estep was but thirteen years of age when he left home to fight life's battles for himself.  He had been a farmer up to that time, and had attended the common schools.  He first entered the store of Dr. Sharp, of Cadiz, Ohio, as clerk, and there learned his lessons in the line of work he had chosen to follow.  He remained with the Doctor some nine months, then came to New Athens, and entered Franklin College, where he took a special course of study in order to perfect himself in his vocation.  After a few terms he went to Steubenville, and for three years traveled for J. S. Foster, wholesale dealer in drugs.  He then entered the real estate and patent right business, and in 1879 opened a drug store in the "Old Erie House," in New Athens.  In 1886 the house burned, and his stock was entirely destroyed, the loss being from thirteen hundred to fourteen hundred dollars, with no insurance.  The same year he started again, near where the post office now stands.  Later he was appointed postmaster under Cleveland, and attended both to the duties of that position and to the demands of his business, so continuing until the incoming of Harrison.  He continues in the drug business, however, and is recognized as one of the rising young business men of the place.  He is efficient and obliging, and keeps fully abreast of the times.  Politically Mr. Estep is a Democrat, and in 1884, for county auditor, he carried his township by the largest majority ever given to anyone;  but hs party was the weaker one and was naturally defeated.  He was mayor of his town four years - serving two terms and declining a re-election.  In November, 1881, at New Athens, Mr. Estep married Miss Mary L., daughter of J. E. and Agnes (Coooke) Cannon, of Harrison County, Ohio, and three children have blessed this union, viz.:  Arthur E., born June 23, 1883; Frank Bell, born August 20, 1886, and died at the age of two years and six months, and Paul C., born July 31, 1890.

John Estep, Pioneer Druggist, Taken by Death at New Athens

 

It is with much personal regret that we mention the death of friend John H. Estep, which occurred at his home in New Athens early Wednesday morning of last week, ending a prolonged illness.  It will likewise be sorrowful news to the army of students that attended Franklin College for many years when Mr. Estep, through his pronounced charitableness, had assisted many an aspiring collegian to the higher round.  Mr. Estep was socially amiable, and he meant it all.  And deep down was the desire to assist the fellow man, which he carried out so admirable.  Mr. Estep had ever haeld a leading part in the community life.  He was a man of splendid business ideas, and his was a life of counsel and advice to persons who sought his opinion.

 

Born in Short Creek township, the son of Andrew and Martha Nichol Henderson on September 13, 1855, he had passed nearly all his days within a few miles of his birth.  He had attended the common schools and followed that up with several terms at Franklin College.  He had served as drug clerk in Steubenville, Cadiz, and finally located in New Athens, where he had been constantly in business since his first enterting it.  Mr. Estep had held local offices, and at other times had been candidate on the Democratic ticket for county office, always polling an increased vote.  He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.  Mr. Estep was united in marriage with Miss Mary L. Cannon, and she with two sons, Arthur, at home, and Paul, an instructor in Columbus public school, survive.  Funeral service  held on Friday were in charge of his pastor, Rev. D. A. Keane, and other ministers of the village, Revds. A. D. Anderson and F. S. Williams.  Interment was made in beautiful Longview Cemetery, Ohio.

Death ended the career of a pioneer Eastern Ohio druggist on Wednesday morning at 1 o'clock, when John H. Estep passed away after a brief illness at his home in New Athens.  Mr. Estep was 75 years of age and for over a half century was druggist and merchant in the little Harrison county village.  He had a wide acquaintance as a result of his long career, and was to be found in his drug store up until his recent illness confined him to his home.  Mr Estep was born near New Athens and lived his entire life in that vicinity.  He is survived by his widow, Mary Cannin Estep, two sons, Paul, of DeGraff, Ohio, and Arthur, at home.  Also surviving are....(this is folded over and I cannot read it)

Notes for WILLIAM PITT RICHARDSON, GEN.:

Wealth, influence or favoritism might procure such a gift as this, but the esteem and confidence of brave men cannot be bought."

 

William is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery, Marietta, Ohio.

General William P. Richardson.... Lawyer and ex-Attorney-General of Ohio, was born in Washington county, Pennsylvania, May 25th, 1824.  His ancestors, four generations removed, moved from Maryland into Pennsylvania and settled opposite Steubenville.  His father, Isaac Richardson, was engaged in farming throughout his life.  His earlier education was obtained in the schools located in his native county.  At the age of seventeen he entered the Washington College, where he completed his studies.  Upon leaving school he was engaged in teaching until 1846, when he enlisted as a volunteer in a company that went from Steubenville, and was assigned to the 3d Ohio Regiment.  After serving one year in this capacity he was discharged.  While connected with the army he served under General Taylor and participated in the march from Matamoras to Buena Vista.  After his return he resumed his avocation of teaching, and in the spring of 1850 moved to Harrison county, Ohio, where he taught school and studied law at the same time until August, 1852.  Upon finishing his legal studies with Allen C. Turner he was admitted to the bar, and in the spring of 1853 removed to Woodsfield, Monroe county, where he filled until the following year the position of Principal of the Woodsfield Seminary.  Later, he entered on the practice of his profession, and in 1855 was elected Prosecuting Attorney for Monroe county, and was re-elected to the same position in 1857, and again in 1859, holding the office until 1861, when he entered the service of the United States.  Also, at the outbreak of the war of the rebellion, he was a Brigadier-General in the Ohio militia.  Immediately after the attack on Fort Sumter he succeeded in raising two companies, but before he could secure their acceptance Ohio's quota was filled.  The troops, however, changed the term of their enlistment from three months to three years, and were assigned to the the 25th Ohio Infantry, of which regiment he was made Major, June 10th, 1861, he was promoted to a Lieutenant-Colonelcy and with that rank proceeded to the field.  On May 10th, 1862, he was promoted to the Colonelcy of regiment; May 2d, 1863, he was wounded severely in the right shoulder at the battle of Chancellorsville, which casualty deprived him of the use of his right arm.  He was then freed from duty until January, 1864, when he was detailed as President of a court-martial at Camp Chase.  On the ensuing February 11th he was placed in command of that post, and remained there until the end of August, 1865.  In the fall of the preceding year he was elected Attorney-General of the State of Ohio and was prevented from leaving the army only through the pressing instances of Governor Brough.  In December, 1864, he was brevetted Brigadier-General.  In September, 1865, he joined his command in South Carolina, and was placed over a subdistrict, with head-quarters at Columbia.   Subsequently he was placed in command of the District of East South Carolina, with head-quarters at Darlington.  Immediately after being mustered out of the service, in June, 1866, he was appointed Collector of Internal Revenue for the Fifteenth Congressional District.  In 1869 he resigned the Collectorship and resumed the practice of the law, in which he has since been successfully engaged.  As a commanding officer he possessed the confidence and esteem of his men; his services in detached positions have frequently been made the subject of favorable comment; while, during his five years of service, no charge of any nature was ever brought against him.  He has been connected professionally with various enterprises, and was a director of the Marietta, Pittsburgh & Cleveland Railroad.  He was married in 1848 to Sarah E. Smith, of Brooke county, Virginia.

Abt. 1849, son of ISAAC RICHARDSON and NANCY WILLIAMS.  He was born February 07, 1829 in Short Creek, OHIO, VA, and died April 21, 1913 in New Matamoras, WASHINGTON, OH.

biography from Rosalyn Davenport Gibbs, 468 West Davis Boulevard, Tampa, FL, 33606

 

Samuel Matson Richardson was born 7 Feb. 1829, the son of Isaac and Nancy (Williams) Richardson.  His Richardson family bible (appendix A, item 1) said that he was born in Short Creek near Wellsburg, Brooke County, VA (WV).  His maternal grandfather, Joseph Williams, died in Brooke County in 1847.  It is possible that Nancy (Williams) Richardson may have been visiting her parents at the time of Samuel Matson Richardson's birth.  All other sources say that he was born in Washington County, PA.  More research is needed into the movement of state lines at that time also.  The "panhandle" of WV was disputed between the states of Pennsylvania and Virginia for many years.  Samuel Matson Richardson appears to have been named for Samuel Matson, a fellow volunteer fireman in Cross Creek township, Washington County, PA, with Isaac Richardson. See PENNSYLVANIA ARCHIVES.

 

Samuel Matson Richardson apparently attended Washington College (now Washington-Jefferson College) in Washington, PA, for a while, although they have no record of his attendance.  They appear to have kept records only of graduates.  He then attended medical lectures at the Starling Medical College in Columbus, OH.   Starling Medical College is now the College of Medicine of Ohio State University.  See appendix A, item 2. 

 

Samuel Matson Richardson began his practice of medicine in 1856 in Woodsfield, Monroe County, OH.  The next year he moved to Miltonsburg, Monroe County, OH, where he lived one more year.  On 26 June 1860, he was enumerated in the federal census for Stafford, Bethel township, Monroe County, OH.  See appendix A, item 3.  He then went to Lebanon, Warren County, OH, where he lived until the Civil War began.  Appendix A, item 4.

 

He joined the regular United States Army as an assistant surgeon, where he was assigned to the twenty-third army corps.  He contracted malarial fever while serving at the Chattanooga River in Georgia about 10 July 1864, also congestive chills, causing a rheumatic complaint."  see appendix A, items 5, 6, 8, 9 for his invalid pension claims which  were never allowed.   It appears this was the reason  he treated himself.  He did also apply for a regular pension.  Appendix A, item 10.

 

In November 1864 Samuel Matson Richardson was assigned to Camp Chase, four miles west of Columbus in Franklin County, Ohio where he was surgeon in charge of the prisoners and the prison hospital.  In July 1865 he became post surgeon of Camp Chase.  He remained in this position until he was discharged 30 November 1865.  He was known for his kindness to the prisoners and some even carved a table for him in gratitude for his fair treatment.  A description of Camp Chase during the early days of the Civil War follow in appendix A, item 11.

 

Samuel Matson Richardson was married first, probably about 1849, actual date and place unknown, to Rebecca Harriet Smith, daughter of Dr. Edward and Catherine (James) Smith.  She was born 24 December 1831.  Rebecca Harriet Smith was the sister of Sarah Smith who married William Pitt Richardson, the older brother of Samuel Matson Richardson.

 

Rebecca Harriet Smith Richardson died at Camp Chase near Columbus, Franklin County, OH, on 24 October 1865.

 

Samuel Matson Richardson came to New Matamoras, Washington County, OH, shortly after he was discharged from the army, probably in December of 1865.  He served as a representative of Washington County to the state legislature during the term 1867-1869.  Appendix A, item 12.  He was a doctor, surgeon, and druggist (see appendix A, items 13 and 14) in New Matamoras from his arrival until he retired shortly before his death.  See census records for the years 1870, 1880, and 1900 in appendix A, items 15, 16, and 17.

 iii. OTTO RICHARDSON, b. August 22, 1859, Stafford, MONROE, OH; d. June 30, 1875, New Matamoras, WASHINGTON, OH.

 

Notes for OTTO RICHARDSON:
Otto died from a rupture of the bladder.  He was fifteen years ten months old.   See appendix A, item 22. 

 

Note:  Is it possible that Otto and Thomas could have been one and the same?  If this is so perhaps his name was Otto Thomas or Thomas Otto.  There is a family story that a son ruptured his bladder while getting into a boat.  Could this have led to the drowning story?  Ott, and not Thomas, is listed in the 1860 census (appendix A, item 3).  Thomas, and not Otto, is listed in the 1870 census (appendix A, item 15).

    WASHINGTON WOMAN, 98, DIES SUNDAY:  MRS. EMMA WRIGHT ONE OF COUNTY'S OLDEST                                                                 CITIZENS - FUNERAL TUESDAY
Mrs. Emma Wright, widow of E. N. Wright, passed away on Sunday afternoon, at 4:25 the end coming so peacefully and quietly that the watchers at her bedside, scarcely realized that she was gone.  She went on this new untried journey with a smile on her face, for she had no fear.

 

Funeral services have been announced for Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock at her home, 114 East Seventh Street, in charge of her pastor, Dr. F. C. Witzingman and internment will be in Elm Grove Cemetery (Pleasant Plain Cemetery) beside her husband, who died in 1890.  It was her wish that friends should not send flowers, and that internment be private.  She was conscious until a few minutes before her death.

 

PAST 98 YEARS OLD --  Mrs. Wright was one of the outstanding and picturesque figures in Washington County, and it was altogether fitting that her ninety-eight years should have come to a close on the Lord's Day, for Sunday meant just that to her throughout her long life.  She had many burdens during the years, but she met them all with her shoulders raised and her head up, and her children never heard her complain.  The secret of her long life, she always said, was that she did not worry.  She did her best then left it all with the Lord, and she never worried or  doubted.  She united with the Methodist Episcopal Church when she was a young girl and always kept her membership although for several years she had not attended regularly.   She was a charter member of the Plains Missionary Society, thirty-nine years ago.

 

Her optimism was delightful.  She had a keen sense of humor and enjoyed a joke.  She was a great reader and always kept in touch with current events.  Her children and grandchildren came to her with their troubles and always came away uplifted.  She had an indomitable will and a remarkable pride wich carried her through all her sorrows, financial troubles and heart aches, and people who went to sympathize found themeselves the ones who were comforted.

 

BORN IN VIRGINIA -- Emma Rachel Smith was born in Brooke County, Virginia on November 5, 1833.  Her father was Dr. Edward Smith, a physician and minister as well.  Her mother was Catherine (James) Smith.  When she was nineteen years old she was married to Enoch Wright, on March 10, 1852, and they moved to Iowa in the spring of 1866.  They lived in town a short time then moved on the farm north of town which he had bought from a Mr. Lamb.  This is now the Jim Knotek farm. 

 

Mrs. Wright knew all the privations and hardships of the pioneer but did not falter.  She had a remarkable memory and it was always her fear that her senses might go before her physical strength left her, but this did not happen.  She made every preparation for her funeral and had a special message for each one of her children.

 

To this remarkable woman her boys and girls were still "children" even the oldest daughter "Katie" who is almost seventy-nine years old, was a girl and her mother was very anxious to see  her before she left.  She did, the Terrys arriving about three o'clock.

 

SIX CHILDREN LIVING --  Three children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Wright.  All but three of whom are living:  Katie (Mrs. T. J. Bardo, Washington), Emma (Mrs. W. C. Bardo), deceased, nellie (Mrs. R. W. Mason of Hart, Michigan), Elmer H. (of Arkansas City, KS), Cora (Mrs. C. T. Bartlett of Washington, PA) and Enoch, who died in infancy.....        (The rest of the article was not copied.)

Obituary:  Washington Iowa Democrat, 23 November 1890

 

Passed Away -  In quiet peace, Enoch N. Wright, at his home in Jackson Township, in the Sabbath dawn of November 23, 1890.

 

Mr. Wright was born in Washington County, PA, July 28, 1825, was one of a large family of children who came to manhood and womanhood on their father's farm in that county.  He was liberally educated in Washington College.  In 1852 he married Miss Emma, daughter of Dr. Edward Smith, of Brooke County, West Virginia, who, through all his checkered life, has been his heroic and cheerful helper.  Through days of adversity and prosperity - through dark days and sunny ones - her buoyant, elastic spirit has always been equal to the emergency of the hour.  Their early wedded years were spent on their Peters Creek farm, where Mr. Wright was very successful as a wool grower.  But his progressive and aggressive spirit inclined to the great west, and in 1866 he moved to this county and bought the farm which is now their pretty home.

 

He was a Methodist by profession, and a Christian by practice.  He united with the church at Wright's Chapel in early manhood in 1845.  He loved the Sabbath school and all the ordinances of the church, and supported them not only with his means but with his presence and consistent life.  His nature was a kind and sunny one; he did not harbor bitterness or cherish a wrong.  He was an optimist - tried to find the good in his fellowman, and in his earlier prosperous days his philanthropy gave him the title of "the poor man's best friend."

 

He had been sick since July, and for the last few weeks though suffering no pain, the added weakness of each succeeding day was sadly emphasizing the fact that he was nearing the Border Land; that he would soon be in the Valley of the Shadow.  Fully conscious of his condition, yet cheerful and resigned, the king of terrors had no terrors for him - he met the Destroyer without a shadow of fear.  His trust was in the one who is able to save.

 

His large family - six daughters, womanly women, and three sons, manly men - were with him in his last sickness, save one son in Nebraska, and one daughter in Pennsylvania.  On the last afternoon he wished his chair moved into the sunny window of his room, where he rested for an hour or more, and in a scarcely audible voice talked of "home-in-the-morning."

 

The funeral services, which were attended by an unusually large number of friends and neighbors, were conducted at the home by his pastor, Rev. Mr. Byrkit, whose well-chosen selections of Scripture and fitting words of comfort and consolation tinged the dark, bereaving cloud with a light that was never on sea or land.  The internment was made where rested the remains of many friends and associates, in Pleasant Plain Cemetery, while the choir, in tender tones sang, "It is Well."   The perfect day and the slanting rays of the evening sun seemed to fall like a peaceful benediction, as the good minister commended all the people and the sorrowing family to the God of this friend, this husband and father."

Notes for FRANCES "BECK" SMITH:
To:  Rosalyn Gibbs

 


From:  Kathleen Blair Serr

 

Date:  February 15, 1977

 

Dear Rosalyn,

 

     Last week I found this letter (I have the original) that I have had for years.  If my memory is correct, it was among papers belonging to my grandmother, Nikolaus (daughter of S.M.R.).  The original being in a state of deterioration years ago, I had my brother-in-law make two copies.  I suggest that you use a magnifying glass to read.

 

     This Frances E. Smith (Beck) wrote the letter to her sister "Frank", a nickname, who was visiting my grandmother.  I think they were daughters of our Dr. Edward Smith; however, I cannot "fit" William whom she refers to in the letter into the picture (??).  Of course they are not really your lineage, but that of the "Smiths", wife of S.M.R.

 

     Several weeks ago while searching the files in the Morman library on USF Campus, I found where an Isaac Richardson was listed in the 1790 census of Northumberland County, Penn, i.e., two males under 16, 1 male (?) and 1 maid servant (free).  I understand the University library also has a genealogy section; in fact, one of the librarians at the Morman (library) suggested I go there also in view of the fact one reference noted an Isaac R. listed in American Land Series (State Papers). This I hope to check out within the next week or so.  A neighbor of mine attends class at USF on Monday eve. and I shall ride over with them.

 

     My reply to the Morman Genealogy library in Utah brought the necessary forms to be filled out with my information before they start any research.

 

     Perhaps, we someday will have some answers.

 

                                                                            Love,
                                                                            Kathleen (Blair) Serr

 


P.S.  Excuse (the) typing
         first I have done in years.

 

Note from Rosalyn Gibbs:  I tried to reach my cousin yesterday because I thought she would have been so thrilled to hear about your Smith research.  No luck.  I checked the Social Security Death Index and found her.  I also found her newspaper obituary. She died a year ago (September, 1997) at a hospice not too from from here.  The obit named a niece, Ruth Griesheimer.  I will try to reach her and find out if she is part of the Smith line.

Letter of Frances E. Smith to her sister Frank

 

Note:  If she is addressing her sister as Frank, then she can't have that nickname also.

 

                                                                           Home, July 8, 1852

 

Sister Frank,

 

I cannot say that I am writing to you according to promise on that you would like to hear from me, it is Sabbath morning having finished my domestic affairs and Sarah in her room, the remainder of the family preparing for Church.  I concluded I would spend a portion of my Sabbath at home a writing.  Though Frances, I cannot promise you anything very interesting or that is very important; therefore, I will not weary your patients (patience) in reading what little I have to tell you;  In the first place I can say as we all enjoying good health.  Sarah is going about some little, she has quite a fine little (cannot read this from the original letter).  She has named it Mary Etta.   Wil (l does) not like it so they (say ____________)
yet for my part I named it, Belmont, but every one has different taste of course.  She will name it to please herself if she does not, others.  Uncle and Aunt Estepe & Cousin Harriet were here on yesterday, we have a very good girl with us by the name of  J_laspy (Jelaspy). I wish you had such a girl with you, though she is not in the habit of  going out but is with us because our promised disappointed us;  Frank, you must not laugh when I tell you how many young chickens I have.  I have (twenty and have) anticipation.  I bought ____ns (hens) last week so I think if no bad luck I can raise a hundred.  I have not lost any yet.  I expect it to be my lot this week to cook for harvest hands, which is my delight, the harvest is small.  When it is over Cirtus will be away, then I intend to spend the remainder of my summer in piecing and quilting my quilts.

 

I still practice some on the accordion of an ____ing (evening).  I have a note book and can play a great many new tunes.  I intend it to sending Wheeling the first opportunity perhaps next Satterday.  ____(If) you can tell Papa we have dispaired of receiving a visit from him and that I had a drame ready for him last Satterday, but I have put it in the vinegar, when I look out and see the men mowing the grass some ploughing their corn it brings to memory the days of yore when I would see _____ (poor) Will ____ing (toiling) day after day and now he is gone and left the fruits of his labor, when I was there every direction I would look there I would see something he had toiled for, it appeared to me all the time that there was some one that I had not seen and they would yet come it did not appear to me that it was William I had seen, I had flattered myself with the idea of him getting well and seeing him and as I had often said I would get to sing with him once more; but he is no more.  Frank, we know what it ____ (is to) loose a mother and brother.  I have often thought who would (be the first one) among the 9 ch____  (children who) would be taken away (but oh) Will was (to be) chosen.  Frank, you an___ (and) _______ come out after harvest tell Rob to come out and I will not hide my pie as we go to Pennsylvania if nothing prevents, it is my calculation at present.

 

                                              I remain your affectionate Sister,

 

                                                        Frances E. Smith

 

                                                                Beck

 

notes on the above letter.....

 

According to her birth date Frances was fourteen years old when she wrote this letter.  She mentions her sister Sarah and that she had a baby named Mary Etta.
When her mother, Catherine, died an Aunt Kate became the mother of the children.  Frances mentions not seeing her father so I assume the children lived with Aunt Kate.  Perhaps we have some information incorrect.  She mentions a Cirtus and that he will be away and she will be able to work on her quilts.   More research is needed to explain the name.  She mentions for Rob to come out.  Perhaps that is her brother Robert who lives in Woodsfield.  It may be possible that her birth date is incorrect.  I do not know what she write "Beck" under her name unless it is a nickname.

Fowler, who was willed the remainder of the mill land by John Fowler.  The eldest son of Hiram & Frances, John Edward, had previously sold his share of the bequest to his mother and siblings.

 

2.  The Starr Farm - Frances and her four children sold to the children's cousin, John T. Douglass, eldest son of Mary Jane (Fowler) Douglass and her husband Robert, the 129 acres in Buffalo District B.

Notes for SARAH ELLEN SMITH:
Sarah was a plump, pretty girl with fair hair and skin and blue eyes of the Hollander.  The Smiths prided themselves in being good farmers and considered themselves much better than their Scottish neighbors, the Hunters.  However, when Sarah married Nathaniel Hunter, the Smiths loyally insisted he was a much better farmer than the rest of his family.  Sarah and Nathaniel settled down on a farm near her family.  In February of 1863, they had a fine family of one daughter and four sons and Sarah was waiting the arrival of their sixth child.  Nat went to a neighbor's house to help care for someone who had diphtheria.  He brought the dreaded disease home.  In the next five weeks, Sarah buried her husband and her four little boys, and gave birth to her sixth child, Nathaniel.  Her daughter, Laura Cornelia was prevented from contacting the disease by Sarah's sisters Lizzie and Moll.  They took Cornelia to a water cure hospital in Dansville, New York where they were in training to learn to cure diseases by water treatment.  Sarah took her two children back to her parent's home and taught school in the Old Stone school house on Pierce's Run.  Later the school became a church.  She rented her farm to her brother Will.  Sarah and Nat and their four little boys are buried in Franklin Cemetery.  Nat's marker is a tall shaft and on each side are two small stones with lambs on top.

Obituary:
  
In Memoriam

 

Mrs. Eliza Green, Ne Lucas, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. R. Smith, in Brooke County, W.Va., October 15, 1893, aged almost eighty-seven years, having been born October 26, 1806.  Her whole life was spent within a radius of two miles of her birthplace, the humble log cabin (section not readable).  Her educational advantages were limited but her quick perception and retentive memory were such that she acquired a knowledge of passing events, which made her attractive in conversation, even in old age.  She was united in marriage to William Green, in October, 1825, and soon after moved to the home where their long life was passed.  Thirteen children were born to them, ten of whom survive her.  She delighted in her home and family, and with sympathy and counsel gained the confidence of all; even the little grandchildren took their joys and sorrows to grandma; and as long as her strength lasted her feeble hands never tired of doing what they could for those around her.  Soon after the death of her husband in 1879, her daughter and family moved to the old place and tenderly cared for her until she went to her Heavenly Home.  In speaking on her religious experience her own words were:  "In 1829, I attended religious services held at the home of Abram Bowman on Pierce's Run.  The sermon preached by Rev. Dr. Edward Smith, brought me under conviction, and for several months I sought the Lord diligently.  One afternoon as I sat at my wheel with my three babies around me, the load on my heart became so heavy that I threw myself on my knees by the open window and cried out in my sorrow:  'Oh, Lord, it it pleases Thee, I will neither eat nor sleep until I have a knowledge of my sins pardoned.'  I struggled and prayed until at last I got religion; and how happy I was.  I just shouted aloud; I couldn't help it;  and when I looked out of the window, the trees seemed to have got religion and to be praising the Lord, too."  When age had dulled her memory to more recent events, her vision of her (not readable) as clear as the noon-day.  She united with the M.E. Church.  Rev. Wesley Smith was pastor of the then Wellsburg circuit.  In her last sickness of three weeks duration her mind (not readable) well as body seemed to be shattered; but at her lucid intervals she would engage in seasons of prayer, and repeat stanzas of the old hymns she loved so well.  She gave her daughter minute directions as to her burial, and said she was going home.  Her funeral services were conducted by Rev. G. B. Hudson.  The neighbors for miles around made a long procession to her final resting place in Franklin Cemetery.  Redeemed of the Lord shall return and come with singing unto Zion; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads;  they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

Notes for ELIZABETH HARRISON SMITH, DR.:
During the Civil War Lizzie, as she was known, and her sister Moll were taking courses to cure diseases, especially diphtheria, by a water cure method in Dansville, New York. After the war, Lizzie became a doctor sometime around 1868.  Although we inquired at probable colleges, we could not find any information as to where she graduated and with what degree. (Check below for correction)  After becoming a doctor, she spent a great deal of time touring and lecturing to groups on the importance of education for women.

 

After her marriage to Hiram Mars, they settled in Galesburg, Illinois.  He died in Galesburg and she died in Flagstaff, Arizona.  Both are buried in Galesburg.

Obituary:  Flagstaff, Arizona

 

                   MRS. ELIZABETH MARS DIED WEDNESDAY:  WAS OVER 90 YEARS OF AGE

 

Mrs. Elizabeth H. Mars, mother of Mrs. C. B. Wilson of this city and Mrs. Warren Perkins of Williams, passed away early Wednesday, morning at the home of Judge and Mrs. C. B. Wilson, where she had lived since April, 1925.  Mrs. Mars was born in Wellsburg, Brooke County, West Virginia, March 30, 1840, and therefore had reached the ripe age of more than 90 years.  Unusually healthy all her life, her last days were not marred by illness and her passing was painless and peaceful and was caused entirely by her extreme age. 

 

Decease was a daughter of Andrew and Jane Smith, the youngest of their 10 children.  After completing public school courses, she attended a medical college in New York City and then the Women's Medical College of Philadelphia, from which she graduated.  She was on the physicans' staff of a sanitarium at Dansville, N.Y., practiced medicine in Oskaloosa, Iowa, then was on the staff of the Physicians sanitarium at Galesburg, Ill.

 

She was married to Hiram Mars of the latter city May 14, 1872.  She and her husband lived at Galesburg until his death, January 12, 1925, though they spent each winter for 10 years prior to his death near Phoenix, where he owned property.

 

Besides her two daughters, Mrs. Mars is survived by one son, Lt. Col. James A. Mars, commanding officer of the United States Army air forces in the Canal Zone, Panama, and five grandchildren.

 

Mrs. Mars by reason of her education and her life, intelligent interest in affairs, had a great many  friends, their affection for her enhanced by her vivid personality, graciousness of manner and ever ready sympathy.  She was a member of the Methodist Church since childhood and shortly after she came to Flagstaff affiliated with the Federated Church.  She was always very active in church matters, in the W. C. T. U. and in missionary work.

 

The funeral was held at four yesterday afternoon from the Federated Church.  In the absence of the pastor, Rev. Recter W. Johnson, the services were conducted by Rev. Francis T. Brown of the Episcopal Church.  The remains are being taken to Galesburg, Ill., to rest beside her husband.  Judge Wilson and Mrs. Perkins are accompanying them.

 

                                                       .............................................................

 

I have a copy of her death certificate.  It is state file # 61, registered # 41.  It lists her residence as Mars Hill.  She was 90 years, 3 months, and 16 days.

 

                                                         ...............................................................

 

Elizabeth is buried in Hope Cemetery, between Cross Street and Main Street.  Her grave is #176.  They brought her body back from Flagstaff, Arizona.  Her obituary is listed in Galesburg but is the same as Flagstaff, Arizona obituary.  The cemetery also lists Hiram Mars as being in plot 176.  I wonder if Elizabeth was interred above Hiram?  It says Elizabeth is interred in 367 and Hiram was interred in 357.

Notes for CLARENCE ANDREW CLAY SMITH:
Clarence Andrew Clay Smith (he was called Andrew) enlisted in Company K 12th W.Va. Infantry, Aug. 19, 1862 and discharged June 25, 1865.  His rank was that of a private.   He was the fourth son of Andrew and Jane to enlist.  His greatest experience came when he was returning home.  It was the custom during the Civil War for each soldier being discharged to find his own way home.  Andrew, on arriving home, asked for a place to spend the night.  Not being recognized, he refused to stay in the house but accepted a place over the wash house.  He was invited in for breakfast before going his way.  During the meal, his mother noticed the unusual way he held his fork, and exclaimed, "Oh, Andy!  You are home at last!"  No doubt it was a joyful celebration.  Andrew married Almira McCreary who was a sister to his brother George's two wives.  They are buried in Franklin Cemetery.

Notes for JOHN NICOL HENDERSON ESTEP:
from:  Commemorative Biographical Record: Harrison, Ohio, containing Biographical Sketches of Prominent and Representative Citizens, and of Many of the Early Settled Families.  Chicago:  J. H. Beers & Co., 1891.  page 568-569

 

John H. Estep, dealer in drugs, notions, books, tobacco, etc., New Athens, Harrison County, was born in Short Creek Township, Harrison Co., Ohio, September 13, 1855, and is a son of Andrew Estep, also a native of Short Creek Township.  John Estep, grandfather of our subject, came to Harrison County from Pennsylvania, in which State he had married Sarah Smith, daughter of Edward Smith (Note:  This is not correct.  Sarah's father was William Smith.)  He settled in the woods of Short Creek Township, and died at the age of eighty-four or eighty-five years; his widow survived him some years, and died at about the same age.  Their family consisted of five children, viz.: Harrison, in Loydsville, Ohio; William, an M.D., also in Lloydsville; Robert, deceased; Harriet, Mrs Taylor Linn, in Short Creek Township, and Andrew

 

Andrew Estep grew up a farmer, was educated in the common schools, and in 1850 was married to Miss Sarah, daughter of Andrew and Martha (Nichol) Henderson, and a native of Belmont County, Ohio.  The Nichol family were of Scotch origin; from Scotland they passed to County Derry, Ireland, during the "persecution," and thence came to Cumberland County, Penn., in 1789.  Later they reached Westmoreland County, and about 1800 came to Colerain Township, Belmont Co., Ohio.  The maternal grandmother of our subject was Jeanette Nichol, born in 1801; her husband, Andrew Henderson, was born in 1798, and died in 1861.  The old Nichol family Bible was purchased in 1805, at a cost of fifteen dollars and twenty-five cents, of William Mathers, St. Clairsville, Ohio, and is a cherished heirloom.  Grandmother Nichol had the following named children:  Martha, John N., Annie, Agnes (wife of Thomas Love, in Aledo, Illionis), Margaret (Mrs. Robert C. McConnell, in Brady, Ohio), Mary J. (wife of John Mintur, in Shepherdstown, Ohio), Andrew Jackson (deceased), Sarah Henderson (mother of our subject), Isabelle (wife of John Anderson, in Iowa), Andrew (in Hardy, Neb.), Elizabeth (Mrs. R. W. Castle, in Iowa), Harriet (Mrs. John Sweeney, also in Iowa), Willliam T. (deceased), Thomas Jefferson and M. N. Henderson.  The family record now comprises fifty-seven grandchildren living, thirty-seven deceased; three hundred great-grandchildren living, sixty-six deceased; three hundred and eighty-eight great-great-grandchildren living, forty deceased; thirty-two great-great-great-grandchildren living. 

 

John's parents resided on the home place in Short Creek Township, thence moved to Steubenville, Ohio, and two years later, in 1874, proceeded to  Missouri, thence to Kansas, and then to Kansas City, Mo., where the his father died in 1884, aged fifty-eight years;  he was a Freemason and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.  His widow, who was born in 1830, still resides in Kansas City, Mo.;  she is the mother of ten children, viz.:  Thomas B., an attorney in St. Louis, Mo.; Emma, Mrs. William Purviance, in Rosedale, Kansas; John H., our subject; James B., deceased; Harriet E., living with her mother in Kansas City; William C., Ella (Mrs. John Wolf), Andrew Smith and Sarah C., all in Kansas City, and Charles, residing with our subject, in New Athens, Ohio.  Mrs. Estep is a member of the Disciples Church, and is a firm believer in immersion, although her parents were members of the United Presbyterian Church.

 

John H. Estep was but thirteen years of age when he left home to fight life's battles for himself.  He had been a farmer up to that time, and had attended the common schools.  He first entered the store of Dr. Sharp, of Cadiz, Ohio, as clerk, and there learned his lessons in the line of work he had chosen to follow.  He remained with the Doctor some nine months, then came to New Athens, and entered Franklin College, where he took a special course of study in order to perfect himself in his vocation.  After a few terms he went to Steubenville, and for three years traveled for J. S. Foster, wholesale dealer in drugs.  He then entered the real estate and patent right business, and in 1879 opened a drug store in the "Old Erie House," in New Athens.  In 1886 the house burned, and his stock was entirely destroyed, the loss being from thirteen hundred to fourteen hundred dollars, with no insurance.  The same year he started again, near where the post office now stands.  Later he was appointed postmaster under Cleveland, and attended both to the duties of that position and to the demands of his business, so continuing until the incoming of Harrison.  He continues in the drug business, however, and is recognized as one of the rising young business men of the place.  He is efficient and obliging, and keeps fully abreast of the times.  Politically Mr. Estep is a Democrat, and in 1884, for county auditor, he carried his township by the largest majority ever given to anyone;  but hs party was the weaker one and was naturally defeated.  He was mayor of his town four years - serving two terms and declining a re-election.  In November, 1881, at New Athens, Mr. Estep married Miss Mary L., daughter of J. E. and Agnes (Coooke) Cannon, of Harrison County, Ohio, and three children have blessed this union, viz.:  Arthur E., born June 23, 1883; Frank Bell, born August 20, 1886, and died at the age of two years and six months, and Paul C., born July 31, 1890.

Henry C.

39.  ADELIA FRANCES5 RICHARDSON (SARAH ELIZABETH4 SMITH, EDWARD3, WILLIAM2, ANDREW (ANDREAS SCHMIT/ SCHMIDT)1) was born Abt. 1855.  She married JOHN GORE. 

 

Notes for JOHN GORE:
John had a daughter named Rhea who married Walter Huston.  They were the parents of actor/director John Huston.  This relationship turns up in his biography.

 

taken from:
John Huston, An Open Book, by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1980, page  7.

 

John Gore had been a drummer boy in the Confederate Army.  He came up the Ohio River some years after the war and visited Marietta, Ohio, where he met Adelia Richardson.  Adelia had two sister, Ada and Metta.  Ada was later to marry a wealthy contractor and make her home in Greensburg, Indiana, and Metta's husband-to-be was an Episcopalian minister with a parish in Hartwell, Ohio.  Security played no part in Adelia's choice.  She married the adventurer John Gore.  Their daughter, Reah Gore, was my mother.

 

Adelia's father, William P. Richardson, had been breveted to general after Chancellorsville, where he fought as colonel of the 25th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  I have a sword presented to him by the privates and non-commissioned officers of the 25th Ohio just before the Battle of Chancellorsville, where he lost an arm and saw his regiment decimated.  I have a copy of Richardson's acceptance speech.

 

     "The value of this gift is immeasurably enhanced by the fact that it was given to me by men who have proven their valor in their country's cause on many a well-fought field...  Wealth, influence or favoritism might procure such a gift as this, but the esteem and confidence of brave men cannot be bought."

 

When my mother was still a little girl, Grandpa Gore took part in the Oklahoma Land Rush, where he rode a thoroughbred in the race for land.  People not only raced for individual parcels, but got together and staked out towns.  Then, of course, they tried to get their town made the county seat.  Whichever town got the county seat got the railroad, ensuring success for the town and its inhabitants, while the towns that lost usually sank into oblivion, becoming hamlets or ghost towns.  Everything was a stake; bad blood rose between competing communities and often ended in gunplay.  Wherever new land was opened up for homsteading - in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas - such battles would be fought.

 

John Gore was a part of this.  He started newspapers in a number of new little towns, after persuading the city fathers to invest in a printing press.

 


The above information was written by John Huston, the famous Hollywood film director.

Notes for HARWIN BARTLETT WRIGHT:
Before the time of the Revolutionary War, they were among the earliest settlers in what is now Washington County, PA .  About 1855, a number of the Wrights, including Harv's paternal grandparents, moved to Washington County, IA.  Harwin moved with his father and mother to Omaha in the eary 1880's.  He was twenty-one years old.  He met May Regina Boylan, the only daughter of James Alexander Boylan and Mary Elizabeth Young, in Omaha.  In about 1902 or 1903 the Boylan's house in Omaha burned.  The Boylans decided to join James' brothers and sisters in New Mexico and start a homestead.  May, or Dot as she was known, moved with her family to New Mexico.  Harwin would travel to New Mexico by train to visit Dot.  They married the evening of 15 February 1904 in Las Vegas, NM.  The following item appeared in an unnamed local paper:  "Time Valley boys, stepped off the train here Thursday evening with a beautiful birde.  Mrs. Wright was formerely Miss May Boylan and resided in Omaha until a year ago when she moved with her parents to Las Vegas, New Mexico where the wedding took place." 

 

Note:  They arrived in Omaha on the 18th.  A brakeman and later as a conductor for the Union Pacific Railroad, Dot's brother Al Boylan and Harv were the same age and may have gone to school together.  They almost certainly were friends when Al worked as a telegraph operator at the station.  They seem to have maintained a closer relationship over the years.  Harv helped on the homestead when he and Dot visited and even built a small house for his family's use in back of the main house.  Dot died of cancer in 1924.  Harwin was married to Dot for six years.  It was an unhappy union and on 1 August 1927, he filed for divorce in Omaha District Court, Doc. #241, PG #22.  The request was denied on 29 Sept. 1928.  Dora made her home in Beatrice, Gage County, NE after their separation.  There was no divorce record in Gage County.  No additional record has been found in Douglas County of when this marriage was legally ended.  In 1929 he was living in Kansas City, MO.  No divorce record was found in Jackson County, MO.  In 1931, he married Blanche Verdin (Berry).  Blanche died in 1937 and a few months later he married Freda Luten (Ware).  Harv and Freda retired to Portland, OR, where he planned to raise roses.  In 1949, he was struck by a car and killed.

Notes for JOHN EDWARD FOWLER:
John worked in a glass factory in various capacities.

 

In the 1910 census for Wellsburg, Brooke Co., W.Va. (E.D. #5, family #245) John E. Fowler was head of the following household:

 

John E. Fowler, 52, married 27 years, born W. Va., parents both born W. Va. selector in a glass factory, own house free of mortgage

Mary Harvey, sister-in-law, 78, single, born Pa., father born Pa., mother born Ohio
Lizzie Gosnell, boarder, 71, single, seamstress, own account.

 

Even though Lenora (Harvey) Fowler left no will, the fact that she owned the south half of lot #409 in Wellsburg put her estate into probate.  Her property which had an assessed valuation of $3,000 was appraised at $6,000 on April 11, 1956.  She had no personal property.  Apparently the real estate had not been sold at the time Administratris Frances Mahan was discharged Mar. 30, 1957.  Since there were no funds in the estate, daughter Frances Mahan personally advanced $1,258.76 to cover Lenor's funeral expenses.

Notes for CYNTHIA ELDORA (DORA) SMITH:
Dora was a nurse in Wellsburg, WV.  She would ride on horseback to the houses to deliver the babies.  In those days, not only would she deliver the child, she would also stay awhile, wash the clothes, clean the house, and cook the food for the family while the wife recovered.  We believe her son's father was a man by the name of Freshwater whose family lived in the Follansbee, WV which is just a few miles north of Wellsburg.  Family stories say her father William Green Smith was against the marriage and "ran" the young man off by offering a sum of money.

Notes for FLOYD SMITH:
Obituary:  Wheeling New Register

 

Floyd Smith, 73, of Hammond Community, died at his home at 10:30 A.M. Wednesday, March 31.  He had been a hot mill worker and retired five years ago.  He was born January 27, 1881, in Brooke County. He is survived by his wife; three daughters, Mrs. June Johnson and Mrs. Reeva Berhalter, Wellsburg, and Mrs. Margaret Robinson, Fort Benning, Ga.; four sons, Thomas Toronto, O., Elmer H., Long Beach, Calif., William H., Windsor Heights, and jack, at home, 11 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.  Friends may call at Chambers, 1030 Main Street, Wellsburg.

 

                                           .............................................................

 

Notes from June Johnson, daughter of Floyd Smith:
 
    "Jack, Mary Louise and I were born in Terre Haute, IN.  We lived in IL just across the state line.  Father Floyd managed a grocery store and Mother Janie took care of the books.  He didn't have much schooling.  He was married before to a Pearl Holmes and had two children but that marriage didn't survive.  Floyd began to travel around the country teaching the art of glass blowing which was a prominent profession in the Wellsburg area and the Ohio Valley.  Janie was playing a piano in a silent movie house.  That is where he first saw her.  To get her attention he threw popcorn.  They met and eventually married.  Floyd also sold Singer sewing machines from farm to farm in the Indiana area."

 

Notes form Richard F. Smith, grandson of Floyd Smith:

 

    This is when he finally brought his wife and two children back to Wellsburg.  June was four or five at the time.  Janie was pregnant for Margaret.   They lived in downtown Wellsburg for some time but Janie insisted they move to the country before the son, Jack, killed himself.  I guess he would sled ride down the hills across the street car tracks without looking.  Floyd was employed with the Wheeling Steel Corporation, Beech Bottom plant, until his retirement.

 

Floyd and Janie lived on top of 49 Hill.  This is a road which climbs the hill originating in Beech Bottom, WV.  Once you arrived at the top, you would turn right and follow the road for about two miles.  They lived around the Tharps and the Devilvoices (sp).   The property was four acres and situated on the side of a small incline.    I remember that little white house which only had four rooms.  There were two bedrooms, a small kitchen, and a living room.  There was no running water, but there was a pump in the kitchen and a pump in the summer kitchen in the basement.  The "out" house was located in back of the house and (to my amazement as a child) it had three holes.  I wondered, "why three?" but they looked like something for papa bear, mommy bear, and baby bear.  Originally there was a large type garage or barn where (if I remember correctly) grandfather Floyd had pigs.  They didn't do any farming but there were large farms around the property.  The house was painted white and Grandmother Janie had beautiful, huge snowball shrubs in the front of the house.  Grandmother Janie was a wonderful cook.  I remember waking up to the smell of bacon frying.  I also have vivid pictures in my mind:  the wind-up clock in their bedroom which ticked loudly at night, the 'slop jar' which had to be emptied every morning, the crochet pieces on the arms and backs of the couch and chairs,  the wing-backed chair in the living room, the rather rough-like material (it felt like horse hair to me) on the couch and chair, the window blinds with the little crochet rings to pull the blinds down.  Grandfather Floyd would sit in his rocking chair just off the kitchen porch.  He usually had a cigarette.  Grandfather Floyd had a stroke and died in 1954.  I remember staying with Grandmother Janie just before he died.   He became blind in those last days and apparently fell from the bed.  Grandmother made me run down to the Tharps to call for a doctor.  Another vivid memory is the Kadish Chapel just up the road.  Grandmother used to play the piano there.  It was a typical little white church with the graveyard surrounding.  There both Floyd and Janie lie  along with my father, Jack E. Smith.

 

Obituary:

from Kaye Richey 

 

Hi Richard,

 

....Here's a correction for your book; your grandfather Floyd Smith was born in 1880, not 1888 as Mr. Wells shows it.  I was scanning the 1880 census on microfilm Thursday at the Tampa library when I came upon the household of William Green Smith.  Your great grandmother Dora appears, age 21, and her brother, William F., age 11; then come three children by William Green Smith's second wife, including Lizzy, shown as age 6/12 (born 1 Dec. 1879) and then Floy (sic), age 4/12  (born February?, 1880).  When you're ready to work on the book, let me know as I am making fixes as I use it.  I'll tell you again it's great!

 

 

 

Notes for PEARL VALORIE HOLMES:
Floyd and Pearl were divorced. She married a second time to Harry McGreagor of Canton, Ohio.   Pearly and Floyd were married at V.P. Church, Charleroi, PA.   Pearl's death cetificate says she was born in Illinois.  Her SS# is 570-44-0545.  Pearl is buried in Island Creek Cemetery, outside Hamonsville, Ohio, on 213 and Cross Street, Church Road.

 

I found a Harry McGreagor, age 45,  1920 U.S. Census, Ohio, Montgomery, Van Buren Township, ED#239.  He is a patient in the Dayton State Insane Hospital.

 

 

 

Notes for MARGARET JANE FISHER:
Janie's mother had divorced her father.  He lived nearby.  She remarried a Konse (Conse) Nation whom Janie didn't came much for.  Janie's first job was to play piano at the silent films.  That is where she met her husband Floyd.  When they returned to his home, she continued to play the piano for the Hammond Community Church which is located up 49 hill from Beech Bottom, WV.

Dear Jannie,

 

I received your card and was glad to hear from you.  I had just mailed you a card the day before I got your card.  But I mailed it to your home.  Well Jannie, your Uncle Clark Hoover is dead and will be buried tomorrow, Monday, so you should write to your Aunt Emma.  Well Jannie, we are both well at present time.  Hope this finds you the same.  Well, we got a card from June and I sent her one, but I did not know her address but I just put her name and Wellsburg, W.Va.  I hope the mailman would know where she lived at.  Well Jannie, since you were here, I have built me a bathroom and have got hot and cold water in it.  I tell you it is mighty nice.  I put a new storm door in front of the house and it keeps out lots of cold.  Well, I have quit work.  I can't stand on my feet ten hours any more.  Well, I can't think of anything else to right.  Give all the kids my best regards.  Would like to see them all.

Notes of remembrance by granddaughter, Peggy L. Rowe:

 

We called my grandmother, Garent E. Smith, "Nana".  Nana was a wonderful, loving woman.  She showed us true unconditional love and we all returned it to her with great joy.  Nana used to sew and make beautiful clothes, especially matching dresses for my sister Darilyn and me when we were young. Nana would also create and sew Hawaiian costumes for herself and my Mother Charlene to wear in the Hawaiian shows they would dance in.  Garent loved everything Hawaiian and both she and my Mom would participate in grand Hawaiian variety shows and reviews.  My Mother could dance Tahitian and Nana did a dance "hilo Hattie".  Nana looked stunning in her colorful moo-moo and straw hat as she did this special number.  My Mother looked stunning in her beaded grass skirt costumes.  Charlene has red hair and freckles which provided a strikingly beautiful contrast to the lovely dark Hawaiian complexion of her dance partners.

 

My favorite memories of Nana include the warm loving feeling of cuddling up on her lap as a child and listening to her stories of her family's lineages.  I profoundly remember each line and curve of her hands, so soft and comforting as they would stroke my hair with tenderness.  When I held her hands, I felt pure love.  On her death bed she was in a coma for sometime.  I would sit and read to or talk with her for hours.  I just "knew" she could hear me, even though some doubted it.  Just a few days before she passed on, my Mother and I were at her bedside.  I was holding Nan's hand and whispered in her ear, "Nana, if you can hear me, squeeze my hand."  My wonderful Nana did if fact squeeze my hand, then repeated the gesture for my mother.  That was the last time I saw my Nana and I will forever cherish that moment.  I will cherish the wonderful memories of Garnet Elizabeth Priest - Smith as she had a great deal of influence on my life and who I am today.  Nana and I have many interests, traits and creative talents in common to this day.  It is in honor of her, and because of her that I continue to research and pass on our family's histor and genealogy for future generations.  I am eternally grateful for all she gave and who she was in my life.  I know I will see her again in heaven.

Notes for CHARLENE LAVONNE SMITH:
When Charlene was about three or four years old, she and her mother, Garnet Priest-Smith, traveled to Hawaii aboard the ship "Luraline".  They were going there to be with her father, Elmer Holmes Smith, who was stationed at Pearl Harbor, U.S. Navy.  The family lived in Hawaii at Pearl Harbor until October 1941, just two months before the infamous bombing on Dec. 7, 1941.

 

Garnet told us about her daughter, Charlene, sharing a cute story that happened while still on the ship;  One day, Garnet was looking everywhere on the ship for Charlene.  She finally found her in the empty formal dining room, sitting at a table eating an ice cream sunday, and surrounded by the cooks and waiters.  Charlene was the darling of the ship.  Also, one day Charlene, carrying her little white purse, found her Mother and showed her what she had in her purse.  It was completely full of money.  When her mother asked her, "Where did you get all that money?", Charlene replied, "From these!" and held up a bunch of the free postcards that the ship gives away!  Charlene had been selling the free postcards to all the passengers

 

Charlene was born and raised at 146 Park Avenue, Long Beach, CA.

 

Charlene is divorced from her husband and now lives with Jack Brannon since abt. 1975 in Long Beach, CA.

Dearest Pete,

 

Well Pete, they tell me the war is finally over with.  That means a lot to us Pete.  Hope I get discharged.  I don't want to go to the C.B.I.  I hope to be discharged.  I am listening to an American broadcast.  It sure sounds good to hear American music.  They just got through playing "I Walk Alone".  It sure is a nice song.  It's about the third time I've heard it.  Darling, you will have to forgive me for not writing more often but Pete, it has been impossible.  But, now it is all over, maybe I can write you more often.  I am sort of celebrating tonight.  I have a quart of cognac.  It sure is rough stuff.  I am saving my celebration until I come home.  Then we will raise hell, won't we.  I think I am good for a week drunk anyway.  I have so many souvenirs to bring home.  I doubt if I can carry them all.   Pete, you will have to excuse my writing.  I haven't written for so damn long.  I have about forgotten how and stop and take a drink every once in awhile.  Well honey, hope all the children are fine.  Tell them Dad loves them all and hope to see them soon.  Please don't expect much.   Honey, you know I love you even if you do get in my hair every once in awhile.  I guess I will never stop.  Well Pete, kiss the kids for me and keep your fingers crossed.  Maybe it won't be to long now.

 

Love and kisses,
Your husband,
Jack

Dearest Pete,

 

Have been receiving your most welcome letters but honey I haven't been able to answer them.  Have been so damn busy.  I have taken each of the German soldiers as they come in.  But I will write every chance I get.  Well honey, about these points... I have 100 on the nose... am expecting to go to the states on the next shipment.  It won't be long I hope.  I know I am in for a discharge.  It won't be too long anyway.  You can start fill the ice box with beer and have it good and cold.  I am good for a two-week drunk anyway.  No kidding, I am expecting to leave about the third of next month.  Well Pete, I am in the best of health .. never felt better and ready to go if you know what I mean.  Since the war has been over, I have gained about ten pounds.  You'll see what I mean.  I was notified yesterday that I was getting the bronze star.  I don't know what the hell for ... maybe for eating spam sandwiches.  I don't know.  Anyway honey, I am so damn glad to get out of this army.  I don't know what to do.  You know eleven months is a long time being shot.  I think I am a little gun shy.  Honey, I sent home a damn good shotgun about a couple of weeks ago.  Take good care of it.  It is worth plenty of money.   Honey, I don't see why you should all worry so much now that the war is over and I am coming home.  Nothing more to worry about, only if they have enough beer in Wheeling to stay drunk for awhile.  Well honey, tell all the children I said hello and daddy loves them. You might call up Mother and June if you want to and tell them I am O.K.  I haven't written them for a while.  Well Pete, keep your nose clean.  I don't think you will like my haircut when you see it.  I love you Pete, but I guess you already know that.

 

Love and kisses,
Jack

Dear Pete,

 

Well honey, we have moved again.  We are now in southern Germany.  I can remember the name of the town.  We are seventy-five miles from Munich.  Well Pete, I am still sweating out coming home.  I don't know when I will get to come.  Don't worry, I will  call you up before I came home or just as soon as I can.  Well honey, It is a couple of days later, June 16 in fact.  I still don't know what the hell to write.  I don't know when the hell I will get to come home.  Wish to hell I did so I wouldn't have to seat it out anymore.  I sure will be glad to get out of this damn army.  Well honey, I got the Presidential Citation.  It doesn't count anymore points though.  Yes, Pete, I received your picture.  You look a little older but still sweet as ever.  I am getting more lonely everyday .. even bald headed.  Well honey, I have to take off again ... have to go on patrol.  I love you.  Tell the kids hello for me.

 

Love,
Jack

Dearest Pete,

 

     Well Pete, everything is going along as well as can be expected.  Am still sweating out coming home.  Don't know when the hell it will be... soon I hope.  I know I will be home before Xmas.  I was told that today.  Pete, what the hell is wrong... aren't you getting my mail?   Hell fire, I am writing you every chance I get... don't know what is wrong.  Honey, there isn't any use to send you a cable gram.   Your letter got here quicker than the cable gram.  Pete, this occupation in Germany is a hell of a job.  Don't like it worth a damn.  It beats getting shot at though.  We have a lot of guard duty to do and a lot of patrolling.  Honey, I have troubles...  don't know what to do after I get out of the army.  I do know one thing...am not going back to the steel mills...the hell with that.  I think I would like to move to California and go in the trucking business.  Above all Pete, I am going to get ahead in life... no more pennies for me.  I want you and my children to have everything you want.  Above all, I want one hell of a nice home.. plenty of doe, a new car every year, and plenty to drink.  We deserve it and will have it.  Pete, you never say anything about Charles and Ann.  Does Charles think he will get out of the army?  Hope the hell he does.  He deserves the break.  Honey, I'm in a town they call Ottobensen..... isn't a bad town..it is suppose to have the most beautiful church in Germany.  The beer isn't worth a damn though.  Well honey, I love you and miss you very much.  Tell the kids Dad loves them.

 

                                                                                         Love,

Dearest Pete,

 

Well Pete, I am still sticking around.  Damn, I would be home before now.  Honey, I am supposed to move out of this Division before the 12th of this month. Where I will go, I don't know.  I don't know whether or not I will start home or not.  I will write and let you know though.  Honey, keep on writing to me.  Heaven know when I will get home.  Keep on writing to this address until I tell you different, but heaven's sakes write!  Having got a truck coming through but have expected to leave  any day.   Well Pete, everything is going along well.  I'm even getting a little to drink lately.  I threw on a good one the other day.  I tried to tear the damn town down.  I tried to drown a couple of krauts.  I got one black eye ... where the hell I got it, I don't know ... think I was in trouble about four times.  Well Pete, I made P.F.C. ....

Notes for MARGARET ANN SMITH:
This is the most difficult addition for me to enter.  It was my mother who inspired me to research the Smith and  Rawson genealogy these past five years. She searched through old Bibles, talked with as many relatives as she could, and recalled old stories and events when she was a child.  Last summer, (1997) I returned to Wheeling, WV, and we both travelled through three states collecting as much information as we could find.  We visited Wellsburg and my father's three sisters.  My Aunt June gave me as much information as she could remember.  My other two aunts, Margaret and Reva, supplied old pictures of the family. Afterwards, we visited the cemetery where most of the Smiths are buried. We later went to Cadis, Ohio, and researched the courthouse for William Smith's will.  Later we tackled the Rawson side of the family.  We spent most of the time near the Parkersburg, WV, area gleaning courthouse information and visiting cemeteries.  We even found the grave of her grandfather, John Thomas Rawson who died October 26, 1904.  Malone Cemetery is south of Sistersville and many miles into the hills of West Virginia.  I finally asked a young man for directions and he took us directly there.  The dirt road wound through forests, up hills, and across streams.  We finally stopped and he pointed in the direction of a lumber trail.  Mother and I started the long climb up that hill to a very small and private cemetery.   Since we both had heart trouble we would stop and rest and talk about the family.  There we found the graves of her grandfather and great grandfather.  It is hard for me to realize that nine months later she would be joining them.  I want to keep one memory clearly in my mind.  Mother and I travelled from Sistersville, WV to Fly, Ohio  on the old Ohio River ferryboat which her father used to pilot.  We went onto the captain's bridge and talked with the owner who remembered her father well and they both seemed to enjoy the conversation.  I wish I knew what  memories my mother was recalling that day.

 

Margaret was married at an early age in the late 1930's.  She divorced a few years later and remarried.  She worked different jobs including Warwick China Factory, a waitress, a hobby shop, Kraus Stamping Plant, and a secretary and book keeper for City Window Cleaning Company.  She later took over her mother's trailer park.  She was a member of Aldersgate Methodist Church (former Chaplain Street Methodist Church) for over fifty years.  Margaret Ann was divorced since 1951 and devoted her life to her children and her family.  She later said that it was her children who gave her the most happiness.  She loved to be in her garden where she could cultivate and see things grow.  She was especially fond of her rose garden just outside her bedroom window.  She would say that she could smell the roses as she was waking.  She also loved wild flowers, and when she would return from her daughter Judy's house in Frederick, MD, she would bring back those flowers and she would pamper them in her garden.  Margaret was cremated and laid to rest at Parkview Memorial Gardens in June of 1998.  Richard had already returned to Germany; Judy, Jackie, granddaughter Michele were present to put her to rest.  At Richard's request a little of her ashes were placed in her rose garden near her bedroom window.  She will always be part of that ground, still nurturing the roses.

                   Eulogy:  Aldersgate United Methodist Church, May 5, 1998

 

     Hello, my name is Sharon Fondriest and Aunt Marg was my mother's sister.
It warms my heart to see all who came here today to celebrate and not mourn her passing.  I stand in unity for my father, Pete, Aunt Mary, and David for this comes from our hearts.

 

     The reason I say this is because we should be in celebration that Aunt Marg is now with Jesus in a peaceful and wonderful place.  We pray someday we will be joined again as family and friends.

 

     I would like all of you to take a moment and say hello to your neighbors and shake hands for we are all friends in one union today.

 

     I brought these three roses today which represent Aunt Marg's life.  We all know red stands for love, yellow for friendship, and white for purity.

 

     I don't think there is anyone here today that cannot agree with me that Aunt Marg touched us all with each and every rose in some way.  I cannot promise that I will not cry during this but like all here I would not be human if I didn't.

 

     Aunt Marg meant so much to so many people.  To her children she was and will always be their lifeline whether on earth or in heaven.  She taught you well and it shows in you and in your children and grandchildren.

 

     It shows in all the neices and nephews, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, cousins, friends.  She taught us kindness, patience and love for family.

 

     She was a wonderful companion to Jim and him to her.  And to Jim's children sitting here today, she accepted all of you with open arms and therefore you all became part of our family.

 

     I guess the memory I have of her is Sally's and Saint Vincents.  If that woman didn't go every day, something was amiss.  I am sure that we all remember some gift she gave us lovingly even if it was not quite in style or size or our taste, but we accepted it lovingly, knowing it was from her heart.

 

     She passed so many things on to so many people:  to Christine, the love of gardening; to Shelly, the addiction of soap operas;  to myself, she taught me the value of family.  She showed this every day by the pictures and stories she told of the good memories.

 

     She would come over to our house in Newcomerstown and before she even unpacked she was working on Mom's garden.  I never saw such a love for plants and living things.  That was one thing I didn't get from her.  It you want it to live, don't give it to me.

 

     To Keith, she gave the courage to stand up for himself.  To  Mark, to always keep your gift of helping others.

 

     To Pete, my father, and Aunt Mary.... you are now the heads of our family.  In you we will continue to look for guidance, wisdom, and love of family ties.

 

     My beloved mother, Delores, once gave her sister, Margaret, a small white pillow which said, "Chance made us sisters, hearts made us friends."  I know your heart is open today receiving the most precious love and that is the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

 

     To all here there is nothing we could say to make this passing easier except that we now have one more Guardian Angel in heaven to watch over us.  As you look around today you will notice all of us (the family united) are wearing a Guardian Angel pin over our hearts.  Aunt Marg would always say, "May the Guardian Angel watch over you" when she was saying good bye.

 

     It is time to let her be at peace.  Her work is done on this earth; our work is yet to be finished.   Somewhere high above us right now she is smiling and saying,  "May the Guardian Angel watch over all of you."

Hello Linda - My name is Cassandra (Craft) McConnaughy.  I was searching on your site under the listing of "the first six generations of the William Smith family from Brooke Co., WV".  I noticed there was some incorrect information listed under my relative's name. 

 

My great-grandmother was Anna Wells Byhanna.  She had a set of twins named Brooke & Vista Byhanna.  Brooke died, however Vista Virginia (Byhanna) Craft was my paternal grandmother.  

 

On the webpage it lists the following information:

  

212.  VISTA VIRGINIA7 BYHANNA (ANNA VIRGINIA6 WELLS, VIRGINIA BROOKE5 SMITH, GEORGE WHITE4, ANDREW3, WILLIAM2, ANDREW (ANDREAS SCHMIT/ SCHMIDT)1) was born November 29, 1923 in Brooke County, WV, and died February 25, 2000 in Brooke County, WV.  She married MATTHEW BRAND CRAFT August 16, 1945.  He was born July 04, 1910 in Brooke County, WV, and died in Brooke County, WV.

 

Notes for VISTA VIRGINIA BYHANNA:
Vista Byhanna had a twin who died at birth.

 iii. ANN BELINDA CRAFT, b. private.
 iv. MATTHEW HOLLIS (BRAND) CRAFT, b. December 28, 1958; d. June 05, 1988

 

The information about my Uncle Matthew "Hollis" Craft is incorrect.  He is NOT deceased.  The date of death you have listed is actually the date of my paternal grandfather Matthew Brand Craft's demise. 

 

Also, my Uncle Douglas Wells Craft is divorced from Norma, my father Terry Shafter Craft is remarried, and my Aunt Ann Belinda Craft is now married.   

 

If you require any additional information please don't hesitate to contact me.

 

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

 

Sincerely,

Cassandra (Craft) McConnaughy

Notes for KAYE RICHEY:
Notes from Kaye Richey:

 

 

I am so amazed at the amount of work you have done and the amount of material you have unearthed.  It is truly a breakthrough to make a connection to Andreas Schmidt, whether he is a Dutchman, Honnander, Swiss, Miss, or Bohemian.  Ausgezeichnet!  I downloaded it to a Word file and it has 211 pages!!!  It'll be time for a new ribbon.

 

I see from the material that you work for DoDDS.  Many teachers who used to teach in the old Canal Zone have now moved to Germany and you may have run into one or two.  If you say Kaye Richey they'll probably say, "Kayeboy?" but that's my son who was a lot more well known in Panama than me.  Unless you meet one of my photography students... After my daytime job with the Panama Canal, I taught photography evenings from 1973 to 1983 at the Canal Zone College.  Gee, that's a long time ago!

 

Obviously I haven't had time to do more than skim through your tome.  Two things popped up:  the Gunpowder River and the Perrigos.  My mother's father was Cliff Smith but her mother was Bessie Leona Green, and the Greens came from around Gunpower Falls.  And they married some Perrigos (or Perrigoys), although not in my line.  (Somewhere I have an e-mail from a lady named Perrigo from Allegan, Michigan.  My Alka-Seltzer equivalent from Wal-Mart was manufactured by Perrigo, Allegan, MI).  I will try to find it.  My wife and I usually spend January through March in Chile so I have just gotten back and can't remember nuttin!

 

I am sure that my Mom knew your grandad and positive that your granddad knew my grandad, as he was a character and never missed hanging around the A & P in Wellsburg on Saturday mornings to chat with his fellow farmers.  He had left my grandmother in 1919 and went to live in sin with Lizzie Martin out on Genteel Ridge.  He was a veterinarian and between about 1910 and 1915 had a livery stable in Wellsburg just off of 7th street (about halfway up 7th street hill, where the State Police license examiner had you stop the car, put on the emergency brake and then start again, right there.  To the north there was an alley and the stable were there behind the house on High Street just north of Miss Kraft's house on the corner.  Granddaddy Cliff was noted for his swearing at the horses and for his square dancing.  After Lizzy Martin died around 1965 he came to live with my Mom and they used to go square dancing every Saturday night, sometimes at the Lower Buffalo Grange near Little Washington and sometimes to some (yuk!!) Western Square Dance group (the regimentation in Western just turns me off).  About the same year he came to live with my Mom, my grandmother quit taking care of babies and old ladies (she was about eighty-five) and also came to live with my mother.  She surely went straight to heaven when she died because she was always civil and attentive to Cliff's needs even though she was still mad at him for leaving her.    O.K.  I'm delighted with what you have done.  We'll speculate later on "Prague".
