.....My grandmother passed away last October and we have been going through some genealogy information, pictures and other items she had collected. My paternal grandmother was Betty Jane Cragin Eckhart. Her mother was Georgia Marshall Cragin. Georgia Marshall's mother was Bettie Ezell Marshall. We knew that Bettie Ezell married George B. Marshall but did not know her parents other than that they were Ezell's and that she had had a maternal grandfather Leavell. We had her grandfather Leavell's picture and a boot scraper that has been handed down, generation to generation.
.....From the 1880 census we have discovered with near certainty that Bettie Ezell's parents are Elizabeth and James Ezell, who lived next door (according to the census) to Martha and James R Leavell. This would jive with the boot scraper and the picture we have that have Bettie Ezell's maternal'grandfather Leavell' written on them. On the 1880 census it also states that Elizabeth and James Ezell have a daughter named "elizabeth" who would be the same age as my GG grandmother Bettie Ezell. We also know that from the 1860 census James Reed Leavell had a daughter named Elizabeth who would be the same age as Elizabeth Ezell in the 1880 census and who lives next door to her mother and father Martha and James R Leavell.
.....Anyway, I hope you can make sense of that. Let me know if you have any other information on any of these people or others in the Leavell family. See our family tree for the picture of 'Grandfather Leavell', who we believe is James Reed Leavell.

Notes for JR. JOHN RALSTON:
12/27/2001
Hello and I must say I to suffer from being absent-minded. This message is in reference to a message I sent to a Noah Smothers. He had posted some information on the Net about Sarah and the Leavell line and I ask him what was his source. He gave me your website and I have been looking through it. I am trying to find out anything I can to further my research about Sarah Montague Leavell and her marriage to my gg-uncle, JOHN RALSTON. If you have anything in your FTM files that might help or hint, I would be grateful if you would share with me. I would be willing to share anything I have that might help you in your research.

The Central Record (Lancaster, KY), August 02, 1907
Hon. Lewis Y. Leavell Dead
....News of the death of Hon. Lewis Y. Leavell was received with deep regret by his many friends in Lancaster. Mr. Leavell, whose health gave way about a year ago, was taken to a Lexington infirmary some months since, but he never gained strength and continued to lose ground until Monday, when his death occurred. The remains were brought to the residence of Capt. J. A. Doty, in this city, the funeral services being held in the Lancaster Cemetery Wednesday morning, at 11 o'clock Revs C. C. Brown and Henry N. Faulconer officiating. Mr. Leavell was born and raised in Garrard county, being a son of the late Mr. Ed Leavell, one of Garrard's most popular and successful farmers. He entered Centre College when quite young, and graduated from that institution with high marks. He was a member of the Presbyterian church, and a liberal contributor to that institution. Mr. Leavell was blessed with a portion of this world's goods, and while he made many contributions to what he believed to be worthy causes, yet no one was ever told of the fact, he believing in keeping such matters to himself. Mr. Leavell was never married. He served as a member of the Legislature with distinction. He was repeatedly asked to enter politics and make races for different offices, but preferred to remain in the quiet walks of life and have little to do with such matters. He was one of the best-posted men on public affairs the men had, and, while he had little to say, yet if asked his opinion he would tell you readily, and always have a judgement which was worth considering. While Mr. Leavell had little to say, yet he did many acts of kindness and will be missed by many people.

Lex. Herald 6-2-1910
Grand Old Man of Garrard Died At 93 - John Y. Leavell, Uncle of Judge George Denny Passes Away.
.....Lancaster, Ky, June 20. Mr. John Y. Leavell, Garrard's "grand old man," died at his home near this city after a few days' illness from heart trouble. He would have been 94 years old on the 21st of next March. His mental and physical powers were well preserved, and he was able to talk by the hour of the many interesting incidents of his long and active career. He was the only remaining organizer of the First National Bank of Lancaster and was its president from 1870 to 1872.
.....He was also the only suviving county commissioner who built the present Garrard county courthouse. He was in his young days, an old-line Whig, but being a Southern sympathizer, later he became a staunch Democrat.
.....Mr. Leavell was of remarkable physique being 6 1/2 feet tall, and in his prime weighed more than 200 pounds. He was the father of ten children, seven of which are living. They are A. D. Leavell, Walker Leavell, Miss Belle Leavell, Mrs. John Francis of Lancaster, John Leavell of Pecos, Texas, Mrs. Jennie Armstrong of Frankfort, and Mrs. Jasper Bogie of Indianapolis.
.....He is the only surviving uncle of Judge George Denny of Lexington; he was also the uncle of the late Louis Y. Leavell, who died four years ago at a Lexington hospital and who at that time was the Lancaster's richest citizen.

////
JOHN YANCY LEAVELL, 1817-1910. John Y.'s grandfather, Edward Leavell, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and an early pioneer of Garrard Co. He married Elizabeth Hawkins (daughter of Nathan and Catherine Hawkins) and they raised a family of five sons and four daughters. Their son Benjamin Leavell was born in Virginia in 1772, settled in Garrard County in 1795, and was a farmer and a slave holder. He married Isabella Miller Adams, daughter of Captain William Miller and Nancy Yancy, widow of Alexandria A. Adams. They raised five sons and five daughters. One of their sons, John Yancy Leavell, was born March 21, 1817.
.....John received a liberal education and married Jane Gordon Doty. In his young days he was an old line Whig, but, being a Southern sympathizer, he later became a staunch Democrat. He was both a successful farmer and financier, owning several hundred acres of the best land in upper Garrard. He was also a leading stockman who sent stock South on foot, and was such an extensive dealer that he almost governed the marker in this section.
.....John Y. Leavell, one of the most remarkable men of Garrard County was termed "Garrard's Grand Old Man" because both his mental and physical powers were remarkably well preserved. He was able to talk for hours of the many interesting incidents in his long and active career. He could go back and give platforms of every presidential campaign. From a physical standpoint, Mr. Leavell was clearly a scion of pioneer stock with all its vigor, 6 ½ feet tall and weighing over 200 pounds.
.....John Y. Leavell was one of the organizers of the First National Bank of Lancaster and was its president from 1870 to 1872. He was a commissioner who built the present Garrard County Court House and he was a member that negotiated the extension of the Kentucky Central Railroad (now the Louisville and Nashville) from Rowland to Richmond.
.....He had the unusual privilege of living to see the seventh generation, remembering his great grandfather as he himself was a great grandfather. The Garrardite was the father of ten children: Benjamin F., Elizabeth Gordon, Azariah, John Y., Belle M., Lewis E., Jane Boyle, Emma Walker, and Mary Doty Leavell. He died in 1910 at the age of 93 and is buried in the Lancaster Cemetery.

A History of Central and Western Texas, page 395
.....There is no citizen of the Pecos valley deserving of greater honor than John Y. Leavell, for twelve years the sheriff of Reeves county. During all those years he bore a well earned reputation throughout western Texas for a highly efficient officer, fearless and relenting in the discharge of his official duties, regardless of whom was affected. During the earlier years of his incumbency of the sheriff's office, he was often required to deal with desperate characters, among whom might be mentioned the notorious Jim Miller, who made the Pecos country the field of his criminal operations for some years and whom Mr. Leavell finally arrested, put in irons and later took to Eastland, Texas, for trial, following the murder of Bud Frazer, Mr. Leavell's predecessor in office. He was active and fearless in establishing law and order, and too much cannot be said of his efficiency in ridding the Pecos country of many of its desperate and lawless bands and establishing the peace and security which the community now enjoys.
.....He was born in Garrard county, Kentucky, and coming to Texas in 1880 he located first in Tarrant county, but later moved from there to Young county, and in 1892 he came to Pecos. In 1896 he was elected the sheriff of Reeves county, and by successive re-elections continued in the office until 1908. In the meantime he had acquired an interest in the Pecos Valley Bank, and he declined a renomination as sheriff to become the assistant cashier of that institution in 1908, his present position.
.....Mr. Leavell married, in Young county, Texas, Mrs. Alice Williams. They are both members of the Baptist church in Pecos.

Notes for CYNTHIA ANN GOOCH:

continued from Orville Scott Clark, THE CLARK STORY by Mrs. Jarvis Clark – Nampa, Californiak:
...Wyoming, then across the line into Idaho about where the present town of Border is located, then along on to Fort Hall and Pocatello, Not many days travel after leaving Pocatello brought us to the parting of the trails on Snake River at the junction of the Raft. The parting of our family came at this junction. One group going to California, the other to Oregon. Here we were met by Brother John who had come from California to join brothers Nick and Scott at Fort Boise whose plans were to meet us at the Raft River junction but Scott took sick and Nick stayed to care for him. John came on alone and after missing our train once met us at the junction. Well do we remember that happy meeting with brother John whom we had not seen since 1849.
.....The Oregon group consisted of mother and we children, Nancy Jane and her husband, Lafayette, and their family and Will Frazier, brother-in-law of Lafayette.
.....The California party was made up of brother John who came from California to meet us at this point, sister Cynthia Ellen and her husband, John Warmoth, a man by the name of Dugan and Henry Warmoth.
.....(The Aunts spoke much of how badly the mother felt on telling Cynthia Ellen goodbye for she never expected to see her again. It turned out that she did see her a couple of times after that, once when she came to California with Nicholas in 1883 and again later at a family reunion in Weston, Oregon. After this sad parting the trains proceeded on their respective routes. First I shall map the course of the Oregon party which was no path of roses as expressed by the Aunts.)
.....That part of our trip (so say the Aunts) from the separation point to Fort Boise was crowded with uncomfortable experiences. The things that stand foremost in my mind, so says Aunt Mildred, were the mosquitos and flies. There were millions and millions of them and they were as big as mice. Many people became sick from so many bites and we were told that one man died. (In another diary the mosquitos in Idaho were quoted as being smaller than hummingbirds but much larger than crickets. Many diaries spoke of them as being their greatest discomfort in the entire trip. One diarist spoke thusly, “All other vices subsided as the years went by but the mosquitos went on forever.”)
.....Here is where we encountered the Digger Indians said to be the filthiest people on earth. They were not so much for fighting as for stealing. They would come right into camp and steal anything they could get their hands on. They would steal animals, cats, dogs, horses – any kind – and cook them whole and eat everything. A whole boiled rat was a great delicacy for them. We could always tell where a Digger Indian camp had been from the filth.
.....From this junction we proceeded on a northwesterly direction through Twin Falls on to Fort Boise, on the Snake River. We had followed this river with its gorgeous waterfalls and crystal clear water from Fort Hall. Here at this fort we met brothers Nick and Scott and enjoyed another happy reunion. Nick was working for a man by the name of Cy Mulkey and stayed on in Fort Boise for another year before joining the family in Oregon.
.....Scott, having recovered sufficiently to travel, came on into Oregon with us. These brothers whom we had not seen for so long were a great attraction to we children and we simply hovered around them every minute, constantly sparring for our turn to hold their hands. Mother just sat and looked at them with tears streaming down her cheeks. It was such a happy occasion.
.....From Fort Boise our trail took us on a northwest direction crossing the Snake River twice near Farewell Bend, on northwest crossing the Powder River, through a small town called Kamela, on to Pendleton and finally to our home cite on a farm near what is now the town of Weston in Umitilla County about October first 1865. Here we “settled down” to make our home and till our soil. Oh! How good it was to know we did not have to travel any more. We were a tired, dirty family and no credit at all to the Territory of Oregon when we arrived but we were an industrious family and did not lose much time in establishing ourselves and “digging in our roots” into the state where we have lived ever since. We made of ourselves good neighbors too, sharing our farm equipment, such as it was with those who did not have any. Nancy’s husband, Lafayette Warmoth gave Taylor Green the mule to plow the ground to plant the first corn in Umitilla County.
.....We still had Indian trouble here and the boys did not dare get far from home after dark. On several occasions they were chased by the Indians but were never injured. We girls never got out of sight of the house during the day and never out of the house after dark.
.....Reminiscing now on this journey the main points of interest to us were Omaha and crossing the river at that point, Fort Kearney, crossing the South Platte, Fort Laramie and registering there, Independence Rock, Fort Bridger, the parting of the way at the Raft River junction and meeting brother John; those darn mosquitos in Idaho, Fort Boise and the reunion with Nick and Scott, our arrival at Pendleton and the last and most glorious of all, our first home in the west in Umitilla County.
.....The Oregon and California trails were identical for 1200 miles, from Independence and other starting points on the Missouri River to Burley, Idaho. A complete continuous marking of this trail should be made, as a monument to that human courage which brought our East and West together especially should those markings be made through those gorges where the wagons went over the identical wheel marks digging trenches three to five feet deep and are still to be seen at this late date. The present Lincoln Highway follows in certain sections the old path of the 49ers but there is still no visible continuous marking. The Oregon Trail Association, I understand, is working on such a program. I do sincerely hope they will be successful in remarking this great trail and that it will always be a pathway of free men.
.....Going back to the parting of the ways at the junction of the Raft and Snake Rivers we will now accompany the other half of the family to California, praying each minute that we will all be lucky enough to arrive in that land of gold, me in the writing of, they in the actual culmination of their trip. Proceeding on a south west trail the party soon joined a group from Salt Lake City who had come on a north west trail to join the north caravan at the junction near the Nevada, Idaho border. This was one of the significant events of the journey west. Sixteen miles from this junction the trail led over Granite Mountain and down to the Big Goose Creek. This descent into Big Goose Creek was one of the worst of the journey and they found the remaining third of the overland trail by far the most dangerous and uncomfortable. Bad water, no feed, dust and heat by day and extreme cold at night. Here is where they again had to chain all the wheels to hold the wagon back down a five mile decline then on to a steep mountain called “The Devil’s Grave”.
.....One can just about tell where the going was the toughest by such names as “Dead Man’s Pass”, “Hell’s Half Acre”, “Three Crossings”, “Massacre Rock”, “Devil’s Gate”, “Hell Upset”, “Point of Rocks” and “Echo Canyon”, this is where, again, the wagons were lowered with ropes. It is described as worse than all the bad places, they had previously encountered, put together – having perpendicular stretches of twenty to thirty feet at a place. In spite of their efforts to save their wagons, one went tail over tongue to the first landing, losing many of the provisions. John who was driving at that time fell off the seat and over the rest of the team onto the head mules, which brought tears from Aunt Ellen (Ed Warmoth’s mother) thinking her brother would surely be killed. The wagons seemed to stand on end during this descent. (How welcome the modern tanks and jeeps would have been at points such as this.)
.....This train also encountered the Ute and Shoshokoe Indians through Utah and Nevada. The Utes were described as very cruel, the Shoshokoes as peaceful, wanting only food. However they were a filthy tribe and would roast a whole horse and just gorge themselves. They never got enough to eat. Owls, lizards, crickets and grasshoppers were all plentiful and on their daily menu. In order to catch the crickets and grasshoppers the squaws would often set fire to the grass and burn their legs so they could be easily caught. They often dug deep holes and a large circle of Indians was formed and thousands of crickets were driven into the hole by the gradually narrowing ring of flailing Indians. In some cases they added hot rocks which partially cooked them then ate them at once. At other times they allowed the insects to dry and ground them into a coarse meal for cakes. (How would you like to drop in for hors d’oeuvres?) While these Shoshokoes were rather peaceful they were a menace in that they would shoot arrows into the stock until they would have to be killed, then as the caravan moved on they moved in and gulped down the animals, entrails and all. If any cattle were driven away it could be laid to the Utes. They were the thieves.
.....Never have I been so engrossed in listening to tales as I have been in the telling of these by members of the family and in reading letters relating to experiences of others who were in this train.
.....This open flat of Little Goose has been described as a place looking like Hell Upset. The rocks and boulders were so thick and so large that the wagons had to drive right over them, the wheels slipping between the boulders, the animals falling and every one shaken to a jelly. Here was a good chance for the ever watchful Utes to attack. The rocky passageway through the Records Bluff actually dripped with blood. This tribe did not scalp, they liked best to take as many horses as they could, not dead or wounded. This necessitated a very alert guard day and night, especially at night for that is when they operated most effectively. They would stalk a train all day to get a chance at the stock at night.
.....We spoke of the ’65 trail through Idaho being no bed of roses. The family, California bound, spoke of their trek through Nevada as “plain hell”.
.....The journey continued on toward the south west through Thousand Springs Valley, Rock Springs (the waters of which were warm and safe to the emigrant) I say safe for on several occasions both for our train and others encountered poison springs. Earlier trains were the ones who paid the greater price for a drink from these springs. Afterward they were marked so were passed by, by many a thirsty traveler. Their greater trouble being to keep the stock safely away from them for when the stock smelled water they bolted for it and there wasn’t a thing that could be done until they had drunk their fill and dropped dead soon after.
.....On to Emigrant Springs and Bishop Canyon. Our wagons crossed Bishop Creek eight or nine times and finding it as rough as Little Goose Canyon. On to the valley of Humboldt Wells where the train rested and nursed their bruises and the sick had a chance to recover. Here our train met other trains that had circled the hills to avoid the canyon. While they avoided the rough going they ran into the poison springs which was worse than the boulders.
.....Along the banks of the Humboldt River and the hot sands of Nevada many animals died of thirst.
.....The grassy marshes were encountered around Winnemucca, Rye Patch and Lovelock. The actual illness occurred in the last seventy five miles of the Humboldt River by increasing alkali and filth content of the water. The lower valley of the Humboldt was one long sequence of calamity. The trains traveled its banks for over three hundred miles. Its waters sink in the hot sands of the state and is truly a river whose course appears contrary to al laws of nature it is one of the very few long rivers of the world flowing westward parallel to the equator. All along its path the Digger Indians were a perpetual pest. This river had the distinction of being named by General Fremont in honor of the noted traveler Baron Humboldt.
.....The trains of ’49, when Grandfather Clark and Uncle John made their first trip, encountered much trouble with the Indians through this strip of country. Their train would many times find much of their stock missing in the morning and the men would have to go looking for them. On one occasion when three of the men, whose duty it was for the day went in search of two horses, they never returned, leaving their wives and family stranded. One woman had six children who had to be scattered over several trains, wherever they could be squeezed in Indians were everywhere. Aunt Ellen’s husband, John Warmoth, spoke of them as, “Those dirty, thieven, stinkun sons-a-guns.”
.....This ’49 train of which Grandfather and Uncle John were a part came well supplied with food and, so far as I could find out, got through to California with a small supply on hand.
.....The family train of ’65, when the Indians were more treacherous were afraid to do much hunting or fishing and at night did not dare build fires to keep warm and had to crawl from one animal to the other in utter darkness to be sure they were still there. Their trail led them through the muddy country of the Humboldt where earlier trains had lost hundreds of animals in the mud. On to Elko and the canyon of the South Fork – the same unfriendly gorge traveled by the ill-fated Donnor party. Most of the trains became so weary and discouraged, for here is where they parted with so much that was left of what they started with from Missouri. Our family having good guide books and Uncle John having been over the trail some years earlier came through Greenhorse cut-off to Emigrant Pass without much trouble. They felt that their suffering with the dust was greater than all of their other discomforts combined. Even those mosquitos in Idaho and Wyoming.
.....Profiting by the mistakes of other trains, out train kept to the north side from Humboldt Wells to the Great Desert from Emigrant Springs down a steep hill to Gravelly Fort, noted for its many scraps with the Ute Indians. This spot was also the scene of that fateful event in the history of the Donnor party when James Reed and John Snyder quarreled. Snyder was killed and James Reed was expelled from the party thus settling the fate of the entire party. (Any account written on the Donnor party will give details on this disagreement.)
.....On past Battle Mountain to Winnemucca. A few miles past Winnemucca the trail branches, one that would lead through Susanville in California, the other north of Alturus and down the Pitt River. These two alternate routes were not very popular on account of them being infested with Indians. The Clark train, in so far as I can determine took neither route, choosing the safer but sandier route down the Truckee River to Truckee, Donnor Lake, down Bear River to its junction with the Feather River then north to Chico and Corning. In and about these towns our families settled and devoted the greater part of their lives to farming. Many of the younger generations still live there. (The Bankheads and Brunks, descendents of Aunt Nancy Clark Warmoth, in and near Corning. The Robert Mitchells, (Bell Warmoth), at Paskenta and Harry Clark, Uncle John Clark’s son at Chico.)
.....This story is a record of the “Oregon Trail” and “California Trail” parties of the Clark family, a record of an invisible trail as it still lived in the minds and on the lips of those dear aunts and others who traveled the way of its colorful past.
.....I have found in my investigations that most of it is authentic. I have also found that parts are delightful reminiscent tales as told to them by their elders. My position can be described best by that quotation from the “Last Ministrel”,
“I cannot say how the
truth may be
I say the tale as t’was told
To me.”
.....In grateful salute to those who made our great west country possible for us.
.....With my love to my boys always,
Mother

Hi Jane, I was just reading about these families on your website. I can't remember if I wrote to you before and made the same offer (I have changed computers and lost all my old e-mails.) but I would be happy to fill you in on what I know of the descendants of Gideon and Nancy Leavell Gooch. My ggg grandmother was their daughter Cynthia who married Orville Scott Clark. Now, he is the big mystery. I can find no information about his parents or siblings. Anyway, I'd be happy to send you my info on their descendants now as I have some time on my hands. Let me know.

Notes for ORVILLE SCOTT CLARK:

THE CLARK STORY
Mrs. Jarvis Clark – Nampa, California
Dear sons Guthrie and Richard:
.....It was my privilege to spend many gay and happy hours with two of your great aunts during their visit to our home in Berkeley in nineteen-hundred and thirty-four.
....So many times during my younger years I had wished I had persuaded my grandparents to tell me of their early pioneer lives, but as one is prone to do, I put it off to a more convenient time, resulting in their passing on without me gaining the knowledge that I so desired. With that disappointment in mind I exerted every effort to get the story from these aunts of their early interesting lives; particularly that part of which concerned their long trek across the plains in the 60’s.
....Aunt Mildred and Aunt Julia came from their homes in Oregon and Washington respectively to help celebrate their eldest sister’s one-hundredth birthday on August tenth, nineteen-hundred and thirty-four, that of Nancy Clark Warmoth at Corning in Tehema County. While in California they made the “rounds” with visits to each of the relatives that could be reached. It was, as you remember, our pleasure to have them in our home for several weeks.
....At the time of their visit Aunt Mildred was 82 and Aunt Julia 80 years of age. Two gayer old gals one could not find anywhere. They were the life of the party wherever they went and were loved by all.
....I sat on the balcony in the sunshine many mornings, forgetful of my many household and office duties and simply basked in the stories and reminiscent tales of their long journey from Grundy County, Missouri to Oregon over the old Oregon trail in 1865.
....After thirteen years I am referring to the notes I jotted down at that time and will endeavor to bring them into some kind of order with the thoughts in mind of preserving for you the heritage that is yours in that courageous journey of long ago.
....If in your appreciation you wish to dedicate this letter to any one let it be to your great aunts, Mildred Clark Swaggart and Julia Clark O’Hara. It is my desire that this chronicle of events as it relates to the Clark family be kept in our family museum along with other data and relics which we have collected as monument to those who have done their share in making our comfort and happiness possible.
....I am giving you no biography nor history in this letter but simply a record of my investigations. I have carefully checked all dates and other important facts with any family records I could find and with historical records of the Oregon and California trails.
....This record is to start with Orville Scott Clark, born January sixth 1810 at Lexington, Kentucky, and his wife, Cynthia Gooch Clark born January seventh 1811 at Lexington, Kentucky. Their marriage took place on January fourteenth (one record says 4th) 1830. Of this union there were born thirteen children.
John Grandison Clark born Dec 8th 1830
Nicholas Schooler Clark born Nov 8th (9th) 1832
Nancy Jane Clark born Aug 10th 1834
Missouri Ann Clark born Nov 7th 1836
Elizabeth Frances Clark born Jan 8th 1839
Cassander Clard born Jan 25th 1841
James Gideon Clark born Apr 4th 1843
Cynthia Ellen Clark born July 12th 1845
Orville Scott Clark, Jr. born Feb 12th 1848
William Alexander Clark born Aug 11th 1850
Mildred Josephine Clark born Aug 11th 1852
Julianna Clark born Dec 23rd 1854
Joseph Harrison Clark born Oct 30th 1857.
The Gideon in James’ name was for grandfather Gideon Gooch.
....As bride and groom Orvilly, as he was affectionately called, and Cynthia Clark moved to Trenton, Grundy County, Missouri where their entire family of thirteen children were born. I have no record of the exact date of their moving to Missouri but it was some time between January and December of 1830.
....In 1860, this large family moved to Oregon City, Holt County, Missouri from Trenton and lived there for a short time at the beginning of the Civil War.
....A very vivid picture in the minds of these aunts was when their older brother James left to join the confederate forces. They could see him in their memories eye coming to tell their mother and younger brothers and sisters goodbye, then riding across the field on his beautiful chestnut horse, stopping to open the gate without dismounting then on beyond the horizon in the late afternoon of some date in 1861.
...While the Clark family as a unit was in sympathy with the North, James was forced to fight with the Confederate forces. A strange man had ridden into the field on horseback and talked with James for some time. As he rode away, James came to the house, from his loft bedroom, got a change of clothes, a blanket, his gun and after dropping his pistol into its holster, bid his family goodbye and rode away. Many tears were shed for they did not expect to see him again.
....They remembered hearing their parents talk about one of the big issues of the war being the dispute over admission to the union of Missouri as a slave state. The northern part of the state was particularly in favor of the Union and it is known that the state furnished more than twice as many troups to the Union forces, than to the Confederates. They spoke of families being divided on the question. Brothers fighting with opposing forces. Fathers against sons. One neighbor boy fighting with the Confederate forces returned home and shot to death a brother who had enlisted in the Union army. Neighbors broke lifelong friendships and became bitter enemies.
....In 1862 the family moved back to Trenton, Grundy County, where they remained until they came west.
....Grandfather, Orville Scott Clark, and eldest son John lured by the discovery of gold in California and the great opportunities in the Oregon Territory came across the plains in 1849. They visited both California and Oregon and after looking over the prospects of each for one year, grandfather returned to Missouri. He gave such glowing accounts of the great west country, the beautiful scenery, the wonderful climate and the opportunities for the family that Nicholas’ feet began to itch to be on the big trail. Hunting buffalo and wolves and fighting Indians so fired him with adventure that he came to California in 1852 with friends who joined the big caravan of that year.
....I have already given you an account of the ’50 and ’52 trains in a previous letter. I am concerned here only in mapping the course of the larger part of the family in 1965.
..It was your great grandfathers plan to return to the west with his family but he fell ill and died August 10th, 1859 in Grundy County and was buried in Cyrus Cemetery in Trenton.
....Elizabeth Frances and Missouri Ann both died before the father and are buried in the same cemetery.
....With John and Nicholas on the Pacific Coast and James in the war, Orville Scott Jr. was the oldest son at home. He was not too happy about such an arrangement and begged his mother to let him go west to his older brothers. In 1864, having arrived at the age of sixteen and thinking himself old enough to combat the buffalo and Indians he hit the trail with the train of 1864, working his way across by helping with the stock and the wagons.
....Great grandmother Clark with Nancy Jane and Cynthia Ellen and their families (Nancy was now married to Lafayette Warmoth and had six children. Cynthia Ellen was married to John Warmoth, brother of Lafayette.)With the four younger Clarks, William, Mildred, Julianna and Joseph left Trenton in May 1865 on their long journey to the land of sunshine and gold. James was still in the army. I have no record of when he joined the family. This is where the vital part of my story begins and I quote the aunts:
....For months we made great preparations for this trip which was estimated that it would take six months, with good luck, to reach our destination in Oregon where our three older brothers now were. Our bedding was all made over and new warm comforters made. Sewing went on day after day to supply the family with good warm clothing.”
....The cooking and preparation of food was a gigantic task. Bacon was cured, likewise ham, fruit was canned and for days before starting the cooking went on day and night. Bread was baked, beans cooked and everything that could be prepared and kept without spoiling was done so, but the first articles of importance were bacon, ham, beans, flour, coffee, sugar and rice. Almost as important as these was to keep a “yeast starter”. Our estimate of food per person was 150 lbs. flour, 150 lbs bacon, 25 lbs coffee, 30 lbs. sugar, 50 to 75 lbs. rice, 1 keg of lard, crackers, dried peaches, salt and pepper. These estimates were furnished by the government to every person planning the journey.”
....At last the big “shove off” day arrived, when we set out, in a great state of excitement, from our Missouri home on May tenth, 1865. After traveling in a northwest direction, cutting off a good corner of Iowa we came to the Missouri River and crossed where the present city of Omaha now stands.”
....Before this city, which was on the west bank of the Missouri River from Kanesville (Council Bluffs) was named Omaha, it was called Traders Point and during the years of ’49 and ’50 its only inhabitant was an old trader named “Sarpee”. Later the place grew to be quite a city and was the outfitting place for the trains of the ‘60’s. It drew its name from the O-Maha Indian tribe.”
....Our trail took us for some distance along the north bank of the Platte to a point near Fort Kearney where we forded to the south bank trail then on to the junction of the South Platte and North Platte where we were held for about three weeks, until the parties arrived from different sections of the country to make up our party of one-hundred wagons which was the required number before our caravan was permitted to make the final take-off. When all were assembled there were two hundred fourteen wagons.”
....Our first night out I shall never forget, “ said Aunt Mildred. “Julia and I could not sleep in that covered wagon. Some were fast asleep, one could hear their deep even breathing. To we two girls, two years apart in age, everything was so thrilling we just could not settle down. Through the canvas flaps of the wagon we could see the dark sky, studded with stars. Somehow we finally fell asleep. In the morning all kinds of noises awakened us including the loud talk of the trail and of the fine farmland that lies at the end of it. Every one was in high spirits for the first exciting days of the journey.”
....There was not much room in which to dress in the wagon for there was so much of everything in it. Barrels of flour, food supplies, tools, clothing, bedding and even the china dogs that mother was so eager in taking to brother Nick.”
....I can still smell that first breakfast in the open air. The morning was crisp and cool and the bacon sizzling so cheerfully in the pan made me wonder why people talked of the hardships of the overland trail.”
..That night we sat around the campfire and the hired man played on his fiddle and for some reason came out with “Home, home sweet sweet home, Be it ever so humble there is no place like home.” That was too much for mother thinking of our Missouri home and the months ahead in a home on wheels. 'o play something cheerful please,” she said, and he came out with “Oh! Susannah, Don’t you cry for me, For I’m going to Oregon with my wash bowl on my knees.”
....Those first few days were not unpleasant in spite of the bad roads, the heat and sand. We romped and played, the older people sang and at night danced by the light of the fire and sang such songs as our hired man did in his gayer moods. Our serious moments came farther along on the trail.
....It was at this crossing where our first real quarrel took place. Mother had hired a man to drive our wagon to Oregon and he was certainly doing a good job but brother Will, now fifteen years old, had begged all along the way to be permitted to drive. This, the hired man objected to but on his persistent coaxing mother finally gave Will permission to drive. In crossing the river at this point Will, being inexperienced about currents, sand and other hazards in crossing a stream turned the wagon over. The hired man became so angry that he cursed mother for her interference whereupon Will demonstrated his manliness by driving the man from the camp and himself drove the remainder of the distance to Oregon. It was as a result of this mishap that the two China dogs were broken. (For those who might to hear about the dogs you may tell them the Staffordshire dogs that sit on our mantel were bought by your grandfather, Nicholas Clark, in Trenton, Missouri, when he was sixteen years of age (in 1848) and left them at home with his mother when he took off for California in 1852. In 1865 his mother brought them across the plains. They were broken when the wagon turned over in crossing the Platte River. The pieces were carefully preserved and on arrival in Oregon were put together with home made mucilage. This mucilage is still holding the dogs together after eighty-six years (1865-1951). A precious family heirloom. Always cherish them as such.
....Another requisite was four hundred men and boys who could shoot, as a protection from the Indians. (As I understand their story this final assemblage took place at the junction of the South Platte and the Platte River in Nebraska, called Platte River Station. This checks with historical records.)
...It took ten days to ferry the entire troop across the South Platte. This was done by taking the wheels off the wagons and using the wagon box, which had been calked for that purpose as a boat. The horses and other stock swam across which was quite a tedious trick, much of the stock being lost at this point. We were fortunate in not losing ours.
....At this station a wedding took place. (It was now in June). A young girl by the name of Rhoda Payne came with a group from Missouri and met a dashing young man by the name of John Henry Collins. The whole train took time to celebrate with dancing and singing and even chivareeing them. Thinking that life would be easier for them at home they did not proceed with our train and after staying at the Platte River Station for a time returned to Missouri.
....From this point the perilous part of our journey began. While the earlier trains had blazed a well defined trail we knew that ours was to be no path of roses. Although the way was a degree safer in many ways there were still the same hazards to be encountered the same precautions to be taken for ourselves and our stock which consisted of two cows, three yoke of oxen and one horse. Lafayette Warmoth (Nancy Jane’s husband) had three span of mules and John Warmoth (Cynthia Ellen’s husband) one team of horses. We were the only ones in the whole caravan with cows.
....The trail was long and the traveling slow, covering about ten to fifteen miles per day, some days much less, owing to weather conditions and the terrain of the country. We carried all of our water for both family and stock for the water holes were few and far between.
....Our route followed in main the old Oregon trail. In many places there were no roads and the men had to make their own. As in the case of nearly all of the trains some would get restless with the monotony of slow travel and thinking they could find a quicker route would break away from the caravan and were never heard of again. One lone man finally showed up and rejoined our party after being gone nearly three weeks. He had gotten lost and after wandering around finally located us, worn out and nearly starved.
....Soldiers were stationed all along the route and were near us nearly every night as a protection against the Indians. While these soldiers were a protection against the Indians the younger women and girls were as afraid of them as of the Indians. On two occasions we can recall of a soldier being shot for molesting a young girl. (Aunt Julia said that no girl was safe unless she could run like a rabbit, climb a tree and shoot a gun.)
....At night in making camp the wagons were lined up in a large circle and tied together. The stock, as were the family, were within this circle. The women and children slept in the wagons while the men slept on the ground. Guards were on duty all night, the men taking turns. The buffalo did not bother us much. Perhaps they had become accustomed to the foreigners invading their ageless territory by this time but the wolves and Indians were a constant peril. One incident standing out so vividly in our minds, was that of the Indians stealing a wagon wheel, wrapping it with dry grass, setting it on fire and turning it loose down hill toward the stock in hopes of stampeding the animals and causing them to break away. We were delayed on two occasions by such as this until we could corral and calm our animals.
....We usually carried a little kindling with us but many many times our only fuel was buffalo chips. (Aunt Julia said to be sure and make note of the fact that she had to gather her share of those chips. She sure was a cutie.)
....(An interesting item I might relate here is that General W.F. Sherman remarked in a letter to Buffalo Bill, “As near as I can estimate there were in 1865 about 9 and ½ millions of buffaloes on the plains between the Missouri River and the Rocky Mountains and about 65,000 Pawnies, Sioux, Cheyennes, Kiowas and Arapahoes.)
....From Platte Junction the next place we recall is the incident at Chimney Rock.
..We do remember some of the country through that part of Nebraska, it being flat and dusty most of the way. The roads across this part of the plains would stretch out over an expanse of about fifty miles but when the mountains were reached they converged again to cross the narrow ravines. This great Platte Country was known as the Great American Desert. Often we had to change our route on account of the Indians but we never did get far off the real Oregon Trail. Those who did never got through. In main this western trail was one trail. By the 50’s it became a road so deep and broad and obvious that it could easily be traced and was destined for two thousand miles to become the bravest highway in the world.
....For many days we rode without seeing a tree or water, not even a bush, then again we would see the wild flowers – especially during the earlier part of our trip on the plains – which were beautiful. ( In speaking with the Aunts about these flowers they mentioned the liepin, a little pink flower spoken of as the wild pink, the verbena, honeysuckle and the sweet brier.)
....“We loved the birds too; especially the hummingbirds and the meadow larks. The trees we remember most and of which our “elders” spoke were the hazelwood and the quivering asp. These are a few of the marks of the trail that made a definite imprint on our youthful minds. Never will we forget the cries of the Indians which we often mistook for those of the wild animals. While we considered the wolves a great peril they often did no more damage than gnaw the ropes by which the animals were tethered. One thing they did do that was horrible was to dig up the bodies of those who had died and had been buried along the way, of which there were many.
(Quoting Walter Prescott Webb in “The Great Plains”:
....“It was an army of peace which came to subdue the wilderness but its casualties were greater than those of many a battlefield. It has been estimated that for each mile of the two thousand mile course of the trail seventeen people per mile paid the price of the winning of the Oregon Country.”)
....All along the trail we saw many marks of graves such as piles of rocks, gates of wagons, buffalo skulls, wagon wheels and sometimes a piece of furniture. All of which spoke of deep sorrow and from us drew a prayer of thanks that we had thus far come in safety. It was not a glamour journey by any means. There were fleas and gray backs (lice) and dirt. Noise and quarrels all along the way.
....The weather was bad a great portion of the time. When it was stormy, we tied the animals to the wagon wheels and lashed the wagons down with picket pins over the wheels to keep them from blowing over. Oh! How that wind could blow. Never will I ever forget it (said Aunt Mildred.)
....(One writer relates: “It blows turable for a week or ten days and then it will take a change and blow like hell for a while.)
....Often our only meat was buffalo meat which is coarser grain than beef but was quite tender and juicy, especially when we were fortunate enough to have a yearling calf. We used the knuckle bone for soup and many people used the marrow to spread over the bread because of the nourishment it contained. (Here, Aunt Mildred said she just could not like that.) Our bread was often baked in buffalo ashes. Doesn’t sound good does it? But bread baked any way was mighty good when you were hungry as we were many times during that journey, not that there wasn’t something to eat but we were growing children and were always hungry.
....It was amazing to us that we could see such a distance on these plains. Mountains miles and miles away seemed so close. Some of the men (on a day of rest which was probably the Sabbath) decided to visit a huge rock which looked as though it was not more than five or six miles distant. This rock was Chimney Rock of which we had heard. It seemed so close they thought they could make it there and back by noon. Well – it was late at night when they returned. They had walked miles and miles.
....Chimney Rock, as other land marks along the way did not interest our train so much from its picturesqueness as it did from the fact that on reaching it we had cut-off so many miles of our way to our future home and comfort.
....(This rock is one of three great outstanding natural monuments and three equally noted forts on the Old Trail:
1. Chimney Rock, 40 miles south west of Scotts Bluff, Nebraska
2. The Red Buttes, fifteen miles south west of Casper, Wyoming, and
3. Independence Rock about fifty three miles south west of Casper.
....These three stand as a perpetual reminder of that greatest of all world migration. Julia Altrocchi in her book entitled, “The Pageant of the Platte” speaks of the great old silhouettes as still impressive and the scenery weirdly beautiful.)
....Our journey so far along the Platte had not been too bad. The roads along the South Bank were very good for several hundred miles. Here is where we found the greater abundance of wild flowers, the lupin, larkspur and the creeping hollyhock. At certain points it was very dangerous on account of sand. If the team stopped even to rest a minute it was buried in sand. This is where our Missouri mules showed their stubbornness. They just humped their backs and would not move and had to be whipped and often severely clubbed to make them go. (In checking this sand of the Platte I discovered it was called “The wide moving river of rapidly running sand.” Washington Irving described the Platte as “the most magnificent and useless of streams.”)
....The next place we came to that we remember quite well was Fort Laramie in Wyoming. Here we had to register, as did all emigrants, so that the government could have a record of how many crossed the plains in that year. I am sure the record could not have been very accurate if as many in previous trains failed to register as did in ours.
....(Fort Laramie, originally a fur trading post, was changed into a military post by the government in 1849 and for forty one thrilling years simply bulged with early western history in the making. It was here that the Donner Party celebrated the Fourth of July and it was here that Mrs. Spaulding of the Spaulding-Whitman party wrote in her diary on June 21st 1836 on leaving Fort Laramie, “This day we leave this post. Only He, who knows all things, knows whether this dilapidated form will survive the undertaking. His will, not mine, be done.”)
....From Fort Laramie we soon came to another of our great landmarks and trail boosters, Independence Rock or Register Cliffs, whichever you wish to call it. Here thousands of emigrants carved their names or initials. We along with the others.
....(This rock is located on the north bank of the Sweetwater River in central Wyoming. No diary of importance concerning the winning of the Oregon and California Country has failed to mention this all important landmark. The name of the rock is thought to have been given and engraved thereon by the first white travelers who traversed the famous South Pass. The name of, “The Register of the Desert” or “The Great Record of the Desert” is accredited to Father De Smet, a Catholic missionary in the early 40’s. It was here on July 4th 1862 about twenty Masons on their way to Oregon found a shallow recess in the rock and held lodge – the first recorded Masonic meeting in Wyoming.)
....From here we soon entered the Black Hills Country where we found the roads very bad. Here we left the buffalo chips and used greasewood for fuel. We were not sorry to give up our job of gathering those everlasting chips. Within a few days we came to what was called the South Pass. (History records this as being discovered by John Charles Fremont in 1842 at which time he recorded complete data and impressions for the future overland trail which our families traveled. I also read that Etienne Provot, a trapper, is usually named by the best authorities as having been the actual discoverer of this Pass. One can take their choice of information. However it was General Fremont who gave us the official data. This was called and still is so named the backbone of the American Continent. The summit is marked by a stake. On one side the rain that fell would run toward the Pacific, on the other side toward the Atlantic.) It appears like a mesa or huge plateau. Mountains on all sides. The mountains to the west of us were our attraction and fear because we had to find our way over or through them before reaching our new home. Narcissa Whitman, wife of Marcus Whitman, is said to be the first woman to cross South Pass.
....Another fort of which we remember, the name was Fort Bridger in Wyoming which should follow next or about here in our journey through the Wind Mountains. Our party arrived here some time in July.
....(They were on schedule time as history records most of the trains arrived in the Wind Mountains in July. I don’t know why our train went to Fort Bridger unless the California bound part of the party thought they would kike to go through Utah and would make Fort Bridger their parting place. If that were true they changed their minds after arriving at the fort for their separation point was further along in Idaho.)
....The owners or men who ran these trading posts were hard looking characters and were just as hard as they looked for their lives were rugged, having to fight the Indians and trap for food and fur. They likely made their own clothes for their pants were of buckskin. These men were usually large broad shouldered fellows with long hair and beards.
....As we approached the large mountains the going was more perilous and steep. In many places the wagons had to be lowered over the cliffs by ropes. Also the stock. In other places not quite so steep we had to get down the best way we could, often getting badly bruised and injured. In many places the road was almost entirely obliterated but the mountains were the same that looked down upon the Whitman train of 1850.
....Fort Bridger was our first separation point. From here some of the wagons took a south trail on to Salt Lake City but our entire family kept with the Oregon group and took the northwest trail (the old Oregon Trail) out of Fort Bridger.
…..We found the Mormons we encountered near the separation point very friendly. We thought the reason they were so nice was to persuade some of our men folk to stay and become Mormons. They were offering very attractive inducements, such as a home, furniture, plenty of food and the opportunity to build themselves a business, but we were headed for Oregon and nothing could change our minds. Our dreams of all that good land awaiting us in Oregon could not be blotted out by such inducements.
....It was at Fort Bridger that the Donnor party made its first mistake by quarrelling over which trail to take. As a consequence the party split, one part going the northern trail, the other being influenced by Jim Bridger, the trader at the fort, took the ill fated Hastings cut-off into Utah. The northern route party reached California safely.
....There were various reasons why people “took off” to this great west country. Some dreamed of acres of nice rich soil, others of gold, thinking they were going to get rich over night. Many middle aged and older people were seeking a better climate in which to improve their health, some just for the adventure, some to escape debts and others just “To show ‘em back home.”
....At the California State Library in a diary of one of the 49ers we found this entry: “I am going so I can be independent of the ----- fools back home that feel themselves above me because I am a poor cuss, ---- their stinking hides.”
....Our people I am sure did not come with any feeling like that. They were people of the soil and Oregon offered each man 640 acres, 320 acres to each wife and 160 acres to every child. To them it was truly a land of promise.
.....So far as I can determine they did not use Sublette’s cut-off, for, as they remember they went into Fort Bridger which necessitated them crossing the Green River near Lombard Ferry. I am inclined to believe they did not use the ferry because of the charge, but forded a few miles north of the ferry as many other trains did.
....Out of Fort Bridger our course took us northward, crossing the Little Muddy River and met another trail (the Sublette cut-off) near the present cite of Cokeville, Wyoming, then across the line into Idaho (see CYNTHIA GOOCH)

A History of the Pioneer Families of Missouri
with numerous sketches, anecdotes, adventures, etc., relating to Early Days in Missouri. Also the lives of Daniel Boone and the celetrated Indian chief Black Hawk, with numerous Biographies and Histories of Primitive institutions
By William S. Bryan and Robert Rose
Bryan, Brand & Co., St. Louis, Mo., 1876

SNETHEN, Abraham Snethen and his wife, ELIZABETH STEWART, were natives of Germany. They emigrated to America and settled in New Jersey, where they had 11 children, of whom the names only 7 are now remembered. They were William, John, Reuben, Polly, Lydia, Elizabeth and Margaret. William married and settled in Ky. in 1792, and in 1810 he removed to Ohio, where he lost his wife. He then started to return to N.J., but died of cholera, at Hagerstown, Md. John was born in March, 1789, and when he was 8 years old, his mother died. He was then bound out to a man in Elizabethtown, N.J., to learn the trade of wheelwright. He remained with the man 7 years, and then having had a misunderstanding with his landlady, he ran away and went to Philadelphia, where he embarked on board a ship as a sailor. He followed the sea seven years, and during the latter part of that period, while the ship was returning from the West India Islands, with a cargo of sugar and coffee, the yellow fever broke out among the crew and all of them died except Snethen, the cook, and one sailor. They succeeded, however, in bringing the vessel safely into port, and delivering her to the owners, whose admiration of Snethen's bravery and skill was so great that they proposed to educate him and give him command of a ship. He accepted their offer, but in the meantime paid a visit to his friends in N.J., who persuaded him to abandon the sea. He then went to Ky., and arrived at Maysville (then called Lewiston) in Dec. 1799. Here he first heard of the death of General Washington. From Maysville he went with his brother, Reuben, to visit their brother, William, who lived in Estell co. There he became acquainted with and married SUSAN BOX. He remained in that county 7 years, and bought several tracts of land, all of which he lost on account of defective titles. In 1808 he placed his wife, 3 children, and all their household goods and chattels on a two-year old filly and a little pony, and came to Mo. He settled 4 miles about Loutre Island, on the Mo. river, where he remained 1 year. During that time he was visited by a party of French hunters, who expressed surprise that he had settled in the bottom, "For," said they, "our fathers have seen the water over the tops of the sycamore trees." He became alarmed at their statement and removed 7 miles northward, and settled on Dry Fork of Loutre, where several other families soon gathered about him. In 1812, he removed to Howard co., in company with MUKE BOX, ELISA TODD, JAMES, JOHN & WILLIAM SAVAGE, WILLIAM WARDEN AND ROBERT BENTON, and their families. They placed their families in Kincaid's Fort and joined the rangers to assist in protecting the settlement against the Indians. Mr. Snethen afterward removed his family to Hempstead's Fort, which was larger and stronger than Kincaid's. They remained there until 1814, when they removed to Cooper's Fort. On the night of the 14th of April of that year, Capt. SARSHALL COOPER was killed by some unknown person, who picked out the chinking of his chimney and shot him through the opening as he was seated in his cabin. Mr. Snethen was seated by his side at the time, but was not hurt. In 1818 Mr. Snethen returned to his old place on Dry Fork of Loutre, where he remained until his death, which occurred on the first of Jan., 1859. He raised 12 children of his own, and twelve negro children, and there was not a death on his place for 45 years. He saw 81 of his grandchildren before his death. Mr. Snethen and his wife were both members of the Old Baptist Church. Their children were Aley B., John, Jr., Polly, Elizabeth, William, Sally, Reuben G., Muke B., Nancy, Emeline, David S., and Matilda. Aley B. was a Baptist preacher and a physician. He married CAROLINE JOHNSON, and had 14 children. John Jr. was a merchant at Troy, Mo., for 37 years but has retired from business. He is an intelligent gentleman, and can give a vivid portrayal of the dangers and trials of pioneer life. He went to school with Kit Carson in Cooper's Fort, and received most of his education while they were living in the forts during the Indian war. He married EUPHEMIA WELLS, a sister of CARTY WELLS, by whom he had 6 children. Mr. Snethen clerked in the store of CHARLES DRURY, at Loutre Lick from 1824 to 1826. Polly Snethen married JOHN CUNDIFF, and they had 14 children. Elizabeth married WILLIAM CLARK. William married SUSAN GROOM, and they had 11 children. Sally married HOLLAND WHITESIDES. Reuben G. was married 3 times; first to REBECCA DIXON; second to CATHARINE HUNTER, and third to LUCINDA J. SALLEE. He had 12 children in all. Muke B. married JULIA A. LEAVELL, and they had 5 children. Nancy was married first to JAMES RUSSELL, 2nd to ALFRED WINDSOR, and 3rd to NEWTON J. HUNTER. Emeline married TOLESON HUNTER. David S. married KEZIAH FELKNIFF. Matilda married BENJAMIN F. CLARK. Reuben Snethen, brother of John Sr., married a MISS SMITH, and settled on Duck River in Tennessee. Abraham, another brother, was married twice, and lived in Callaway co.

BARNETT, born about 1/27/1815, place unknown, married to Drucilla BADGETT about 1/29/1839, I think in the Tar River District of Granville Co., died May 1898 in Warren Co., KY. He and Drucilla and their family moved to Warren Co. about 1848 with other members of her family. Joseph and Drucilla may have lived in the Raleigh area prior to moving to KY. Drucilla was the daughter of Andrew Badgett and Elizabeth Leavell. Looking for info on the Barnetts-I have no information on who his parents or siblings might be. Can someone help?
Thank you.

.....In my other mail, I think I failed to tell you that although I don’t have Joseph C. Barnet’s father or mother, I do have extensive information on Drucilla’s Badgett family. My grandmother’s maiden name was Herndon and he married Benjamin F. Barnett, son of Joseph C.; her mother was a Currin and her mother was a Badgett. Drucilla and this grandmother were sisters.
.....This is information that I have had for some time but just haven’t had time to put this file in my computer. But in time if you are interested, I can get it to you.
.....The children of Joseph C. Barnett, I also have some information on them. I have met the granddaughter of Vandelia but she didn’t know any information.
.....My dad’s cousin on my grandmother’s side lived in Bowling Green and knew many of the Barnett family when she was young, she said. She took me to visit John Barnett when he was in his 90’s but his daughter didn’t want us to ask questions but to just let him talk as he remembered things. It was very interesting but no help for genealogy.

BADGETT, JAMES SPIVY AND ORLENA
By James Gipson Badgett

.....Both James Spivy Badgett and Orlena Palestine Davidson came to Grayson County during the 1870's. After the death of their parents, Thomas E. and Minerva (Mitchell) Badgett, five of the Badgett children sold their share in the family home and land in Warren County, Kentucky to their older sister, Elizabeth, and her husband, William Smith. The five Badgetts who came to Texas were James Spivy; Thomas A., his wife Charlotte and two children; Adondrium Judson; Susan; Sally V., her husband J. Polk Hedgepeth, and daughter, Jimmie. Several cousins and their families came about the same time.
.....Orlena came from Dade County, Missouri in 1871 with her mother Susan Meneese Davidson and brothers, Thomas R. and John Winton. They came in a group of wagons. Probably other relatives were with this group. Jim Goff, a long time Grayson County resident, and his family were among the several black families who left Missouri with this group. Orlena's father, John Winton Davidson, died as a prisoner of war January 12, 1865 in a Union prison camp at Alton, Illinois. He developed measles while in the prison camp at St. Louis and was near recovery. In transferring from St. Louis to the prison in Alton he suffered a relapse and died several days after reaching Alton.
.....James Spivy Badgett was born in Tennessee March 14, 1845. Orlena Davidson was born in Dade County, Missouri, February 13, 1861. They married December 28, 1882 in the home of the A. M. Bryants and settled on a farm in the Pilot Grove-Bethel area. They moved locally several times but lived in or near Whitewright the rest of their lives. They had four sons and five daughters-Thomas Roy, David Ray, Rosa May, Winton Elmo, Cecil, Susie Lee, Betty Lou, Nell and Pernie Ann. Nell married Thurmond Bishop July 16, 1923. They have two sons. James Thurmond and Joe Dan. Pernie did not marry. David Ray married Florence Bell Sloan, daughter of John Gipson and Laura Ellen Sloan. The married December 31, 1911. Three of their sons, David Woodrow, James Gipson and Preston Roy were born near Whitewright. Their fourth son, Jack Sloan, was born in West Texas. Florence and Ray moved back to Whitewright when Jack was small and he grew up there. They later returned to West Texas.
.....The lives of the Badgetts and Sloans were close in several ways. Not only did Ray marry Florence, but Betty Badgett and Alpha Sloan were also best friends. Spivy Badgett taught Sunday School where both families attended church. When he passed with his Bible in his hand on Sunday morning, the other families along the way followed. After services he would ofteen stop to visit with "Gip" Sloan. According to Alpha (Sloan) Rhoads, one of the stories he told was that several years before he came to Texas to live, he made a trip down there and worked on a ranch. People in Kentucky had warned him to be on the alert for scorpions and "poisonous horned toads." One day he set out across the prairie of high grass with his rope looped across his shoulder. After a while he glanced back over his shoulder and noticed movement in the grass several feet behind him. He though surely a horned toad was following him. The faster he walked, the faster the thing came. It suddenly dawned on him that one end of the rope had fallen, and the dragging end of the rope was the "Poisonous toad." He enjoyed telling the story on himself as much as others enjoyed hearing it.
.....James Spivy Badgett died May 13, 1927. Orlena lived with her daughter, Pernie, in Whitewright until she died August 1, 1947. Grandmother told me when I was small that her gravest fear was that she would outlive her children. She outlived all but Pernie, Nell and Ray. He died July 1 1965 in Floydada, Texas. The grandchildren live in scattered locations across the country.
.....My father, Ray Badgett, moved his family to Floydada, Texas in December 1919. Woodrow and Preston still live there. Jack lives in California. I left Floydada in 1938 and after several moves, Marguerite and I now live in Conroe, Texas.
.....The above article was apparently in a compilation of Grayson Co. family histories. No date is on the article. It was submitted to the South Central Genealogical Co. in Bowling Green, KY by Louise Taylor of Bowling Green. A picture of the James Spivy Badgett family follows the article showing Cecil, James, D. R., Susie Lee, Rosa May and Orlena.

History of Warren County, Iowa
Des Moines: Union Historical Company, 1879
http://www.rootsweb.com/~iabiog/warren/hw1879/hw1879-m.htm
McKEE, TABOR W. was born in Hamilton county, Ohio, January 2, 1801. His father, John McKee, was a native of Pennsylvania, of Scotch origin; his mother was a Leavell, a descendant of the Huguenots of France. His father was a soldier in the Revolution, fought the Indians under "Mad Anthony Wayne" in 1793-4, and was a soldier in the war of 1812. Tabor W. moved with his father to Wayne county, Indiana, in 1812, where he married Sarah Elliott (a sister of Judge Elliott of Indiana), on the 20th day of October, 1820, by whom he had four children: Malinda, Wm. H., Eliza J. and Edd R.; the first three died prior to his removal to Iowa, the last named is still a resident of Indianola. In 1830 he removed to Henry county, Indiana, where he resided until the 21st of June, 1853, when he moved to Iowa, locating in Indianola, August 8th, 1853.
.....During his residence in Henry county, Indiana, he resided on his farm, and engaged in farming, and buying and driving hogs to Cincinnati. He was one of the commissioners for Henry county, Indiana, from 1834 to 1843. In 1853 he engaged in the mercantile business in Indianola, in the building on the northwest corner of the Square, now occupied as a carpenter shop; he continued in that business until 1855, when he, in company with James Greene, H. H. Patterson and Dan. G. Peck, under the firm name of Greene, McKee & Co., built a saw-mill two miles west of town, on what is now the Frost farm. In 1856 he sold his interest in the mill and built the building now occupied by W. W. Slone as a grocery, and formed a partnership with E. M. LaBoyteaux, and engaged in selling clothing, boots and shoes, etc., under the firm name of McKee & LaBoyteaux. He continued in that business until 1857, when he was elected sheriff of Warren county, and served until January 1st, 1860. In 1861 he was elected treasurer of the county, and in 1863 re-elected to the same office, and served until the first of January, 1866. Politically, he was a staunch Whig until 1856, when he joined the Republican party, to which he belonged at the time of his death. He was a strong friend to the colored race, and during the days of slavery assisted many of them on their "pilgrimage to the north star."
.....He was not a member of any church, but held to the doctrine of the Friends, or Quakers. He was a strong advocate of the temperance cause, and believed in total prohibition. He was a great Bible reader, and on matters pertaining to the Scriptures, was probably the best posted man in the county. He died July 14th, 1871, of erysipelas. His wife is still living; she is seventy-seven years old, and resides with her son, Edd. R. McKee.

Notes for JAMES LEAVELL:
.....James was born in Kentucky, near Lexington, in the year 1804. In the year 1824 he married Elizabeth Cooper of Wayne Co., Ind., where they remained until about the year 1840. He then removed to Tipton Co., Ind. entering from the government 120 acres of land lying two and one half mile north of the village of New Lancaster. There he remained until his death which occured in the fall of 1862, he being 58 years of age. He was the father of two sons, and seven daughters, one of the sons dying in infancy, and the other one, Robert, grew to manhood on his fathers farm. In August 1862, when the President called for Volunteers to put down the rebellion, he volunteered in the 75th regiment where he served three years in the defense of his country. He was been dead several years and I know nothing of his family.
.....The daughters were named, Sarah, Rebecca, Margaret, Mary, Melissa, and Ann. They are now all deceased except Margaret, she living in Elwood, Indiana with her son Thomas and she is 84 years old. While young she married John Bright, who in 1862 joined the 101 "Indiana Volunteers" and died shortly afterward while in the service of his country, leaving Margaret with four small children, their names being, Melissa, Myra, Thomas, and James.

There's a Leota J. Leavell Baugher born Aug. 5, 1873, died Jun. 28, 1922, wife of Loyal Baugher, and she's buried in Plot: B42 L21 G5 of Estates of Serenity, Marion, Grant, Indiana. Her parents are given as Robert and Clara Leavell. See photo of tombstone at findagrave.com

TIPTON CO. IN MARRIAGE RECORDS 1844-1870 says Robert H. Leavell married Linnie Jones on 1-1-1861 in Tipton County and adds that he was 8 in 1850 census, son of James & Elizabeth (Cooper) Leavell; in 1860; not in 1870 Tipton Co. census; in 1880 as widower and doctor. 2-302. Are they confusing Robert Leavell with Robert Hardin Leavell, who was born about the same time in the same general area but to different parents?

228. BENJAMIN LEAVELL (ROBERT, JOHN, JOHN, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born November 06, 1806 in Fayette County, Kentucky, USA, and died October 29, 1868 in Tipton, Tipton, Indiana, USA. Burial: Fairview Cemetery, Tipton, Tipton, Indiana, USA. He married FANNY THORNBURG December 1840 in Wayne County, Indiana, USA, daughter of WILLIAM THORNBURGH and MARTHA BRADSHAW. She was born November 08, 1821 in Wayne County, Indiana, USA, on her father's farm three miles north of Hagerstown, and died December 14, 1893 in Tipton County, Indiana, USA.

Notes for BENJAMIN LEAVELL:
To Tipton Co. IN 1841, settled on 160 acres, of which he cleared 100 acres. His was one of the first brick residences in the county. He accumulted 340 acres before his death.

There is a history of Leavells marrying 2nd cousins (Benjamin's parents were) and being disowned by the Quakers. It's possible that the same happened to William and Martha Thornburg.

See ”History of the Leavell Family” by John Wesley Leavell for a detailed history. He bought 160 acres in 1840 from Newton Jackson in Tipton Co., cleared it, and put 100 acres in a state of cultivation. Within ten years he had put up buildings,including one of the first brick residences in the county. Altogether, he had 340 acres of Tipton land when he died.

See his son John Wesley Leavell, below, for the Wayne Co. Indiana biographical history of the family.
//////////////////////////////////
Book Title: Counties Of Howard And Tipton, Indiana
MADISON TOWNSHIP.
BY G. N. BERRY.
A list of the pioneers of Madison would be incomplete without the name of Benjamin Leavell, who came from Wayne County in the year 1841 and purchased land of Newton Jackson, near the village of Lancaster. He was a man of more than ordinary energy, a prominent farmer and an enterprising citizen. His son is the present efficient Sheriff of the county.

///////////////////////////
Biographical and Genealogical History of Cass, Miami, Howard and Tipton counties ..., Volume 2, Chicago: The Lewis Publishing Company, 1898.
J. W. LEAVELL--On Section 19, Cicero township, Tipton county, resides one of the best and most favorably known citizens of the county, engaged in the most ancient and honorable of all callings, that of agriculture. He is still living in his native county, having been born in what is now Madison township, February 11, 1842.
.....His father, Benjamin Leavell, was a native of the historical state of Kentucky, born in Fayette county in 1806, and was brought to Wayne County, Indiana, in 1811by his parents in their emigration to a better land. His father, Robert Leavell, was born in Virginia in the celebrated year of 1776, and emigrated to the Blue Grass state about the year 1794 with his parents. His father was John Leavell, who was a native of the Old Dominion, Virginia, and served as a soldier during the Revolutionary War. In the paternal line the Leavells can be traced back a hundred years before the Revolution, and are supposed to be of French origin.
.....The mother of our subject, whose name before marriage was Fanny Thornburgh, was a native of Wayne county, Indiana, and a daughter of William and Martha (Bradshaw) Thornburgh, both natives of Tennessee, who settled in Wayne county in 1820. They were of English descent, and in religion Quakers. Mrs. Fanny (Thornburgh) Leavell was born in 1821 and died in December, 1893. She had seven children, all daughters, except ing the subject of this sketch.
.....Mr. J. W. Leavell, the eldest child in the above family, was reared in his native township, attending school at the typical log school-house of the time, where he "graduated." He remained with his father until after his marriage in 1862, and the next year located at New Lancaster and at his trade as a tanner, following this most of the time until 1877, four years of which time were spent at Tipton. Owning several different tracts of land in Tipton county, he then began farming. In 1881 he was appointed county ditch commissioner, and he aided in the survey and location of fifty-five drains in the county. In 1882, on the Republican ticket, he was elected sheriff of Tipton county, when the normal Democratic majority was about four hundred, he receiving a majority of ninety-six; and he receiving a majority of thirty in the precinct in which he was born, which otherwise gave a Democratic majority of sixty-eight. He was the second man ever elected by the Republicans to the office of sheriff of this county.
.....At the close of his term as sheriff he was living two miles east of Tipton, and he continued to reside there until 1891, when he exchanged his farm there for his present place, which then had two hundred and eight acres; but he has given his son eighty acres,--a fine start as a farmer,--so that Mr. Leavell now has, strictly speaking, one hundred and ninety two and a quarter acres.
.....Mr. Leavell has been a member of the Masonic order ever since 1865, belonging now to Austin Lodge, No. 128, at Tipton, in which he has filled all the chairs excepting that of master.
.....March 23, 1862, Mr. Leavell was united in marriage with Molcy Beeson, a native of Madison county, Indiana, born in Pipe Creek township, May 8, 1842. Her parents, James and Sarah (Little) Beeson, were natives of North Carolina, born near Dobson's Creek Roads, and both came to Wayne county, Indiana, with their parents in 1808, in which county they were married and remained residents until 1831, when they removed to land which Mr. Beeson had entered and which is now the site of the town of Frankton, in Madison county. After a residence of four years there Mr. Beeson sold out and moved a little further west, entering land on Duck creek, eighty acres of which were in Tipton county,--it being one of the first entries made in this county. In 1848 Mr. Beeson sold out again and ran a general store at Perkinsville, Madison county, for two years, and the remainder of his life was spent in New Lancaster, in the management of a general store. Mrs. Leavell is the youngest of twelve children,--eight daughters and four sons. Her father died in 1861, and her mother in her ninetieth year. Mr. and Mrs. Leavell have had five children, namely: Madora, the wife of Z. E. Darrow, of Madison township, Tipton county; William T., a prominent farmer of Cicero township, this county; and Benjamin F., a farmer and dairyman near TIpton; Cora M., who died at the age of eight years; and Leonidas, a farmer and dairyman near Tipton. All the children were born in this county.
.....Benjamin Leavell, the father of our subject, previous to 1840 came to Tipton county and purchased the southeast quarter of section 19, township 21 north and range six east. Returning to Wayne county he was married there, in 1840, and located upon his land here with his bride, occupying a small cabin in the wild woods; and in ten years he had a good farm here, well, brick house, good barns, etc.
.....He never belonged to any church or other organization, his standard of morality and refinement being the universally recognized "golden rule." He was well known for his uniform uprightness of character, liberality to the poor and judicial management of all his affairs. In early years he was a Democrat, voting for Andrew Jackson in 1828 and 1832; in 1836 he was a Whig, and after the repeal of the Missouri compromise in 1854 he was with the great anti-slavery party, the Republican, the remainder of his life.

Notes for CARTER T. JACKSON:
See Blancherd, HISTORY OF HOWARD AND TIPTON COUNTIES, p. 438

He cleared 240 acres and added 300 to those.

"Tipton County, Her Land and People", page 484: New Lancaster, perhaps the first hamlet in Tipton County, came into being because of the demand for a trading point by early settlers who came into the southeast part of the county in the mid 1830s. Never platted, the town developed on land owned by Carter T. Jackson who sold portions of his farm to persons who wanted to live there. The first residence was built in the village about 1845 by Abraham Ressler, the first blacksmith. Soon, Granville Newby and R.R. Douglas built homes. In 1848, Joseph A. Wright burned the first brick and built on his farm the first brick home in the county...Ezekiel, his father died in Tipton Co. on his brother Behamin's farm in the year 1864. Malinda Leavell married Carter T. Jackson of [illegible] in 1838, they then moving to Tipton Co. where he had previously entered 240-acres of land and there they cleared their farm and reared a large family. He afterward added three hundred acres of land to his first purchase, but they resided upon their original purchase until their death, the wife dying at the age of 58 years. Carter T. was 90 years at the time of his death. Their children were, Monroe, deceased, Lafayette, a farmer of Tipton Co., Ind., Louisa, she marrying W.P.Gates of Tipton Co. and was the mother of four children, they being; Ida, Torrence, Mary, and Louisa. They are all married and have families. Louisa died while her children were young.

”History of the Leavell Family” by John Wesley Leavell.....F.H. Jackson is a farmer [illegible] being Jane Dellinger. He was a soldier during the Civil War. Melvina married George Myrely of New Lancaster and they are now both deceased and their children are living in Elwood, Indiana. Thomas J. lives in Tipton Co. and Andrey lives in Anderson, IN; Torrence and Teppy live in Elwood; Torrence is a batchlor; and Teppy being a widow, her husband dying several years ago.
.....Nancy Leavell married Dora Mathes of Marion Co., and she died leaving no family. Sarah Leavell married Newton J. Jackson, a brother of Carter T., & they also moved to Tipton Co. in the year 1838, to land that they had previously bought from the government and located in New Lancaster.
.....Newton J. and wife resided on this farm until the year 1844 when he was elected to the office of county clerk of Tipton Co., and upon the location of the town of Tipton they moved there. In about the year 1851, his wife died, leaving two children, Lavina and Francis M., both of them now deceased leaving no children except a son of Francis Marion [illegible] resident of Howard Co., IN [illegible] "39" Indiana Regiment during the entire war, under Captain John Leavell. He later lost his life by a train while a resident of Missouri, some forty years ago. This finishes the families of Robert and Sarah Leavell.

In Reply to: Carter T. Jackson m. 1836 in Wayne Co IN posted by J. Leavell on November 27, 1998
I have been researching Newton Jefferson Jackson, brother of Carter T. Newton was married to Sarah Leavell who died in Tipton, IN on 5 Dec 1851. Newton subsequently married Lorinda (ELTZROTH) Brady. On the marriage of Newton & Lorinda, Willard Wright Jackson was born. Willard is my wife's gf. As to Carter T., I have him born 7 March 1807 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. He married Malinda Leavell on 7 Jan 1836 in Wayne County, IN. Carter died 17 Aug 1898 in Tipton. Have just located marriage of the parents of Carter and Newton. James and Martha Chambers were married 21 Dec 1799 in Wilkes County, North Carolina. Do you have info regarding death and place of burial of James and/or Martha?

Thomas Jackson did not have a sister named Sarah in the 1850 or 1860 census; and since the 1880 census appears to indicate a second wife, it looks like this is the only record of the first wife. The two Jackson children in the 1880 census must be from the first wife as his second wife had a child 5 years old from a previous marriage.

In Reply to: Carter T. Jackson m. 1836 in Wayne Co IN posted by J. Leavell on November 27, 1998
I have been researching Newton Jefferson Jackson, brother of Carter T. Newton was married to Sarah Leavell who died in Tipton, IN on 5 Dec 1851. Newton subsequently married Lorinda (ELTZROTH) Brady. On the marriage of Newton & Lorinda, Willard Wright Jackson was born. Willard is my wife's gf. As to Carter T., I have him born 7 March 1807 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. He married Malinda Leavell on 7 Jan 1836 in Wayne County, IN. Carter died 17 Aug 1898 in Tipton. Have just located marriage of the parents of Carter and Newton. James and Martha Chambers were married 21 Dec 1799 in Wilkes County, North Carolina. Do you have info regarding death and place of burial of James and/or Martha?

Children of SARAH LEAVELL and NEWTON JACKSON are:

232. ALPHEUS LEVELL (JOHN LEAVELL, JAMES, JOHN, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born February 14, 1820 in Washington County, Kentucky, USA, and died January 29, 1888 in Union Township, Holt, Missouri, USA. He married (1) ANN NIXON HORTON January 09, 1851 in Boone County, Missouri, USA. She was born 1823 in Missouri, USA, and died January 30, 1876 in Lewis Township, Holt, Missouri, USA. In his book LEVEL-LEVELL-LEAVELL (2000), the late Everett Jay Levell, Jr., says, "Ann died from burns when her clothes were ignited from a fire at her home fireplace on Jan. 1876 in Holt CO., MO." He married (2) ELIZABETH HAUER BOILES October 01, 1876 in Holt County, Missouri, USA. She married LYMAN A. SMITH in Holt County, Missouri, on October 27, 1889. In the 1900 census he's 74, married 40 years, but she's not with him.

Notes for ALPHEUS LEVELL:
An Alpheus Levell was a private in the Kansas Volunteers (14 D--is that a unit or something?) in the Civil War.

In the 1860 Chariton Co. MO census, in Buffalo Lick Township, he's Alpheus LEVIL, 30, carpenter, born KY, living next door to Anderson Levell, 24, farmer worth $250, born KY; Lucinda, 17, born MO; and Mary, 3 born MO. (An on-line version misspells the name as SEWELL.)

She was born July 19, 1853 in Indiana, USA. (Not likely--most census records say Iowa.) She married James Clarey 10 April 1870 in Grundy County, MO, but divorced him and went back to her maiden name. (But if Flathers is her maiden name, why is she Mrs. Fletchers when she married Anderson?) She also married Robert Taylor 5 April 1892, moving to Webb City, Jasper County, Missouri.

235. JOHN LEVELL (JOHN LEAVELL, JAMES, JOHN, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born Abt. 1827 in Kentucky, USA, and died 1872 in Missouri, USA. He married (1) MARGARET GROSS January 05, 1845 in Howard County, Missouri, USA. She was born September 28, 1810 in Howard County, Missouri, USA, and died November 18, 1870 in Chariton County, Missouri, USA, buried Hill Cemetery, Clifton Hill, Chariton, Missouri. He married (2) ELIZABETH ANN HUMPHRIES March 12, 1872 in Randolph County, Missouri. She was b. about 1830 in Randolph County, Missouri, and died there 26 May 1876. Who are the Nancy, William, Howell, and Martha living with him in 1850? I'm assuming Eliza is his child. Why does Margaret's age vary so much? This line needs work!

Okay, who did I steal this from?
.....William Samuel attended Hampton-Sidney Medical School, graduating in 1846 as a medical doctor. He began his practice in Sperryville, Rappahannock County, VA. In late 1852 he moved his family to Slate Mills, where tragedy struck the family with the loss of 4 year-old daughter Eliza in 1857 and 13 year-old son Elijah in 1860.
.....After Lavinia's brother William Henry Amiss graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1854, Will became his partner. They practiced together in Slate Mills until the Civil War when Dr Amiss entered the Confederate Army as a surgeon. Lavinia died of cholera as the Civil War was starting in April, 1861, and William Samuel could not enter Confederate service as he had to take care of his four children. Following the death of his mother in 1863, William Samuel moved to La Vue with his four sons and assumed the additional burden of caring for his father, the mentally ill and feeble Aunt Amelia, and the plantation. Will Amiss periodically assisted in the medical practice at La Vue and in 1863 Doctors Amiss and Alsop made medical history when they became the first doctors to successfully stitch intestines. Will Amiss introduced their technique to the Confederate Medical Corps, and it was widely copied.
.....Tragedy again struck the family when son Benjamin died in 1865, followed by the death of Captain Jack in 1866. William Samuel inherited La Vue in 1866 on the death of his father, brothers George and James and sisters Elizabeth and Eliza having predeceased their father, John Frank receiving Hickory Hill, and Thomas Burwell being already well situated in Mississippi with a large plantation. In 1866 or 1867, Amelia went to live with her nephew John Frank Alsop at Hickory Hill, possibly at the insistence of William Samuel's new bride Sarah, and John Frank became Amelia's guardian. William Samuel married Sarah Broaddus in 1867, and she immediately began making life miserable for her three surviving stepsons. William Samuel apparently sided with his young wife, and the sons left La Vue at their earliest opportunity: John William (Willie) at the age of 19 in 1868, George Rush in 1869 at the age of 18, and Thomas Everett in 1879 at the age of 19 after living at the Fredericksburg Military Academy the preceding three years. All three of the boys initially went to live with their Uncle Thomas in Mississippi, Willie staying seven years before marrying and moving to Richmond in 1875, George Rush less than a year before moving to Indiana, and Thomas Everett also about a year before joining his brother George in Indiana. George Rush named his first son after his Uncle Thomas. William Samuel and Sarah produced only one child, a sickly boy named Lee Johnston, born in 1870, If there is any doubt of Wiliam Samuel's adherence to the Confederate cause, the naming of his son for Robert E. Lee and Joseph Johnston should put such doubt to rest. The boy died in 1881, leaving William Sanuel and Sarah alone on the large plantation. Sue Read, the widow of James Addison Alsop, lived on the La Vue property, possibly at Hunter's Lodge, and John Frank Alsop and his wife Martha along with their aunt Amelia lived at Hickory Hill, but there were no longer any Alsop children at La Vue. At the time William Samuel made his will in 1882, his only children still living were George Rush and Thomas Everett. His wife was given a life estate to be able to live at La Vue until her death, then the estate and all property was to be divided equally between George Rush and Thomas Everett. Sarah Broaddus died in 1911, a year after Thomas Everett, so Thomas's wife Orpha and George were the beneficiaries. The entry in the W.S. Alsop Bible contains the interesting note, "He was not afraid to die." One wonders if his 2nd wife Sarah, commonly referred to as "the evil stepmother" in the family, had not made life as difficult for him as for his sons.

On 12 December 1878, Lottie C. Leavell of Spotsylvania County married Josiah P. Gayle of Caroline County, as recorded in Book 1, page 49. (Index to Marriages of Old Rappahannock and Essex Counties, Virginia, page 112). Josiah Jr. born 27 Nov. 1836 & died 17 Jan 1905 & was married to Charlotte Elizabeth Leavelle (Aunt Lottie). He is buried at "Rose Mount Farm" in Spotsylvania County, Va. Lt. Josiah P.(Pitt) Gayle (Civil War) was probably the husband of Lottie Leavell. I believe they lived in Caroline CO., VA.

Seeking information on LT. Josiah P. GAYLE, who served in CO. E of the Mercer Co, Spotsylvania CO., VA, organized April 25, 1861. I would like to know if he is the same Josiah P. GAYLE who married Charlotte LEAVELL and/or if he had any connection with the Josiah P. GAYLE who was living in Henderson, KY in the late 1800s. Will exchange Gayle information. Thank you.

DEATHS
JOHN MONCURE DANIEL
.....The news came to Charles Town on Tuesday afternoon that John Moncure Daniel, a native of Jefferson County, W. Va., had passed away that morning at Georgetown Hospital in Washington, D.C. Mr. Daniel had been ill for less than three weeks. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Marguerite Williams Daniel of Alexandria, Va., a daughter, Margaret, of Washington D.C., a son, Richard Micou, of Swarthmore, Pa., a daughter, Anne, Mrs. Fletcher S. Cater of Dublin, Georgia, and a son, John Moncure Jr., of Richmond, Va.
.....Mr. Daniel was born May 26, 1883, on the family farm near Charles Town, the fourth of six children. He was the son of John Moncure Daniel and Anne Elizabeth Leavell, who resided in Jefferson County, near Charles Town. Both were members of old and prominent families; the Leavell family long residents in Jefferson County and the Daniel family in Charlotte County, Va. He attended the Old Academy in Charles Town until sixteen years of age, when he entered the Episcopal High School at Alexandria, Va. and there remained as student, Secretary to the Headmaster, Treasurer, Business Manager, and and as Master until his death on November 1, 1955.
.....Few men have been actuated by as high principles of Christian manhood, or possessed of so strong a character, or expended himself for others so unselfishly as Mr. Daniel. The many boys who attended his classes and daily came under his influence, now successful men and scattered over many states, bear testimony to his Christian influence.
.....A recent article in the "E.H.S.," the school paper, states that, "Mr. Daniel speedily showed a marked talent as an instructor in history and by 1905 was heading that department". Besides his function as head of the history department, Mr. Daniel has served most capably until 1953 as the treasurer and Business Manager for the school. In June 1953 the Board of Trustees ordered the preparation of a suitable resolution to be presented to Mr. Daniel in recognition and appreciation of his continuing devotion and service to the High School for over half a century.

Jane,
...A follow up on Nannie Filmore Leavell. I have the following: Colonial Families of the Southern States of America - Blackwell Family, page 66: 7-5: Edwin Smith, born 1849, married 1878 Anna Leavell, daughter of John Leavell of Culpeper County, Virginia.
...Edwin Smith Blackwell was the son of Joseph Blackwell and Lucy Smith. I am thinking that when the Fauquier County, Virginia tombstone inscriptions were typed they didn't pick up on Edwin Smith's last name - Blackwell. The years on the tombstone inscriptions are off, which I have found not be that uncommon. With the months and days the same for date of birth and death, I'm thinking your miscellaneous entry of Nannie Leavell Smith must be Nannie Filmore Leavell, born September 8, 1856 in Fredricksburg, Virginia, died November 13, 1946, daughter of John Minor Leavell and Louisa Mildred Amiss.
...What do you think?
Judi

from National Register of Historic Places, Inventory-Nomination Form for Elmwood in Culpeper Co. VA, prepared in 1985 by Lucie'Leavell Vogel:
.....After William Browning's death, his wife Lucie and daughter Lucie continued to live at Elmwood and supervised the completion of the house. Mrs. Browning died in 1891 and daughter Lucie inherited the farm. She married Jackson Edmund Byrd Stuart Leavell in 1896. Mr. Leavell, employed by the Southern Railway, ran the freight office in Culpeper. Later he was appointed Assistant Registrar of the Treasury by President Franklin Roosevelt. The family maintained houses in Culpeper and Washington, D. C.; they returned to Culpeper for summer vacations. Active in Culpeper community affairs, Leavell served on the Town Council for twelve years, was Town Recorder and Treasurer, and was on the vestry of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church.
.....Upon the death of Mr. and Mrs. Leavell, the farm passed to their three children: Dr. Byrd Leavell, professor of medicine at the University of Virginia School of Medicine; Blanche Leavell Blake; and Louise Leavell Blake. They continued the farm operations and vacationed in the main house. Today the farm is jointly owned by the children of the three aforementioned siblings of Mr. and Mrs. Leavell.
.....Because of the use of the main house for vacations, little of the interior plan and decoration has been changed. Interior changes which have been made include indoor plumbing and electrification. The Oddenino murals, however, have never been retouched, and original detailing remains throughout the house.

263. REBECCA BELTON (JOHN, SUSANNAH LEAVELL, ROBERT, EDWARD, ? LAVELLE) was born October 19, 1791 in Kershaw County, South Carolina, and died July 23, 1873 in Rusk, Cherokee, Texas, USA. She married JOHN MEEKS NEAL February 10, 1810 in Newberry County, South Carolina. He was born January 04, 1785 in Washington, Pendleton District, South Carolina.

Notes for REBECCA BELTON:
From: "Stephen Neal Dennis"
To: littlecalamity at yahoo.com
Subject: Some Possible Corrections
Date: Sat, 7 Dec 2002 20:03:50 -0500
Dear Jane Leavell:
...There are some corrections that should be made to your Leavell genealogy.
...First, Dr. John Meeks Neal and his descendants always spell the name "Neal" never "Neel".
...Second, this is the "official" list of Dr. Neal's children:'
? 2-1 Abraham Belton Neal (1809)
2-2 Elizabeth A. Neal (1811)
2-3 Magena M. Neal (1813)
2-4 Mary Belton Neal (1816)
2-5 Charity Teague Neal (1818)
2-6 Rebecca C. Neal (1820)
2-7 Nancy Belton Neal (1822)
2-8 Katherine C. Neal (1824)
2-9 Sarah Jane Neal (1827)
2-10 John Teague Neal (1830)
...I own the manuscript document from the 1840s in which their birth dates and marriage dates are recorded, and can give you more specific information.
...Third, Charity Teague Neal Camp died in Iowa, not Illinois.
...Fourth, Dr. John Teague Neal married Susan D. Campbell, not Susan Camp, as often given. Her father was Sanders Campbell, which explains the name of her son. She married three times, which has made tracking her a little problematic.
...I can give you a little information at Katherine C. Neal Courtney, who also went to Illinois in 1848 but ended up in Kansas. Two of her sons were Union soldiers, and I have read their pension files.
...Some of the Camp information is incorrect. There is no Robert Camp, for instance. Two of the Camp sons served in the Civil War, and I have read both pension files. There is also a very good 1885 biography of Charity Teague Neal Camp and of Thomas Camp published in Knox County, IL.
...The William Pinkney Brittain line has been extremely difficult to track, and I am still working on this. "Pink" Brittain was murdered by a disgruntled son of his second wife, whom he had divorced.
...I realize that most of your information has come from Mary Ruby Neal Brown, and I appreciate the extraordinary effort she and her sister made in the 1960s. But there were a few loose ends in her research, and Internet sources have made it possible to begin to fill in some of the gaps.
Stephen Neal Dennis
