The probable Grandparents of Jemima (Barnes) Martin are:

FLANDERS ISHAM CALLAWAY who was born December 09, 1758, and died the 22nd of February, 1829,
in Charette, Montgomery Co., Missouri. He married J
EMIMA BOONE abt. 1777 in Fort Boonesborough, Fayette Co., KY. Jemima was the daughter of DANIEL BOONE and REBECCA BRYAN. She was born October 04, 1762 in Bear Creek, Rowan Co., North Carolina, and died August 30, 1834 in Charette, Montgomery Co., Missouri. Source’s for both Flanders and Jemima’s birth and death date: "Boone Family" by Hazel Atterbury Spraker, 1922, Ind. Genealogy Library, Ind., MO.

Notes for FLANDERS ISHAM CALLAWAY:

Callaway, Flanders, [Warren Co., MO, deed book], will dated 14 Dec 1824, Montgomery Co. [I have endeavored to include the most pertinent information in the following abstract from the Will of Flanders Callaway.]

…Asks that funeral sermon be preached by Rev. Lewis Williams, and if that isn't possible by capable preacher of the Baptist faith. To wife Jemima - negro slaves - 4 girls, and at her death or remarriage, they are to go to youngest son, Daniel Boone Callaway. Wife is also to have her lawful dower. To daughter, Sally Barnes, wife of James Barnes, 100 acres land.[See James Barnes notes for better description.]All residue of land to son Daniel Boone Callaway. Also to this son certain slaves. A slave to son Larkin S. Callaway. To heirs of John B. Callaway $5.00. To heirs of James Callaway, decd, $5.00. Heirs of dau.Tabitha Darst, decd. $5.00. To dau., Frances Lamme, wife of William T. Lamme $5.00. To Susanna Howell, wife of Thomas Howell, $5.00. To Elizabeth Bryant, wife of Morgan Bryant $5.00 and Minerva Jones, wife of John Jones $5.00, all as remembrance of love, having before given their portions. Exrs., son, Larkin S. Callaway & son-in-law Morgan Briant. Wit: Benj. Sharp, Andrew McWilliams and James Bryan. Court Appointed Alexander McKinney admr. with will attached. His sec., Wm. James, James Bryan, Milford Clyce & Daniel B. Callaway. 19 Nov 1834. Warren Co. Court. Exrs., appointed by Flanders Callaway had relinquished their right to admr. (A 38-44)

I have seen many sites and researchers list the date of Flanders death as 1824 and I bet that is because of the date of his Will... "the last Will and testament of the said Flanders Calloway deceased said Will bearing date the fourteenth day of December eighteen hundred and twentyfour..."

However, his death date per his son's land deed..."said Flanders Callaway died about the year eighteen hundred and twenty nine. Signed D. B. Callaway (his seal)" Source: Deed between Alexander McKenney and Daniel Boone Callaway dated Sept. 13th, 1834. Also, Hazel Atterbury Spraker lists his death date in her book, "Boone Family".

Jemima and Flanders are buried in the David Bryan Cemetery in Marthasville, MO. the same cemetery as Daniel and Rebecca. This was first sent to me by Darlene Pace who believed she found the info in the Mo Pioneer book by Bryan and Rose. I have also seen the information listed on Margy Miles site as , "Bryan Cemetery on Teque Creek, about a mile from his farm." Source, "http://www.pastseeker.com/boone/children/jemima/jemima.shtml, Margy Miles, Boone Historian and site administrator.

Marthasville was described in the gazetteer of Missouri in 1883 as;

"First settled in 1801 by Colonel Daniel Boone and his son-in-law, Flanders Calloway, and known then as Calloway's Post, located near the Missouri River, in the southeastern part of Warren County, 20 miles southeast of Warrenton, the county seat, 5 miles north of Washington, on the MP Ry., 60 miles west of St. Louis, and one and one-half miles north of Marthasville Landing, on the Missouri River, the most convenient shipping point. The village contains saw, flour, and planing mills, all operated by steam. One Evangelical and three Methodist Churches, one German school, also white and colored public schools. Grain, live stock, and all kinds of farm produce are shipped in large quantities. Population, 350. Mail, tri-weekly. P.A. Quickert, postmaster.

Jemima and Flanders Calloway were in Charrette in the 1817 St. Charles census, and the 1819 Montgomery Co., tax list. There home was originally near Marthasville and has since been moved to the original Nathan Boone home where it is awaiting reconstruction. Just before Daniel Boone died he was living with Jemima and Flanders. He traveled a short distance to visit and stay awhile in the home of his son Nathan, where he died. Marthasville is located in the southern part of Warren county in the Missouri River Bottoms area. It is the oldest town in Warren County having succeeded the French Village, La Charette.

The most romantic event of early pioneer Kentucky took place near the Boonesborough settlement about the middle of July, 1776. Late Sunday afternoon, the fourteenth, Elizabeth and Frances, the daughters of Colonel Richard Callaway, and Jemima, the daughter of Captain Daniel Boone, were canoeing on the Kentucky River just below the town. Elizabeth was a little less than sixteen years old, while the other two girls were not more than fourteen… not long after the capture Callaway and Boone got together a party of men for pursuit. Among this number were Samuel Henderson, who was engaged to be married to Elizabeth Callaway within a short time, and John Holder and Flanders Callaway, who were lovers respectively of Fannie Callaway and Jemima Boone. Only one canoe was available--the one the Indians had sent adrift--and the rescue party had to wait until John Guess could swim over the river and bring it back....By this time the sun was only half an hour high. Daniel Boone with five others...now crossed the river, while Colonel Callaway, Captain Nathaniel Hart, Captain David Guess, Flanders Callaway, and five or six others, rode a mile down the riverside and forded the river. In a little while the two parties were joined and the trail of the Indians found. On Boone's advice it was decided that his footmen should follow the trail, while Callaway and his horsemen should go by path to the Lower Blue Licks to cut off the retreat of the kidnapers. The first group followed the trail for about five miles before being forced by darkness to strike camp. They camped at an unfinished cabin, which was being built by nine men. Early Monday morning they resumed their pursuit. They were joined by three of the cabin-builders--John McMillen, William Bush and John Martin …the girls had been rescued, returned to Boonesborough. During the month of August Samuel Henderson and Elizabeth Callaway were married, and in the following year marriages also took place between Frances Callaway and Colonel Holder, and Jemima Boone and Flanders Callaway.

I have used the above story as a reference in calculating the marriage date for Flanders and Jemima Boone. I have only highlighted the above information for my own notes. It is not intended to point anything out at this time. The John Martin noted above is probably the John Martin that appears in the early Fayette Co., KY records. I wonder if there is a connection between this John Martin and the Joseph and Benjamin Martin of Fayette Co. My Joseph Martin was not born until 1792, but, perhaps having had a son named Benjamin and his giving name being Joseph, there is some tie to these Martin’s. I just do not know at this time. My notes on Martin’s in this general area of KY appear at the bottom of this paper..

"History of Warren County"

Warren county was organized Jan 5, 1833, out of the surplus territory of Montgomery county. The first settlement within its limits was made by some French emigrants, who built a village at the mouth of Charrette creek, at a date so early that we have no record of it, and who gave it the name of that stream. A fort was erected at that place during the Indian war, but both fort and village have long since disappeared, and the place where they stood was washed away by the river many years ago. The first American settlement within the limits of Warren County was made by DAVID BRYAN, in 1800. He built his cabin near the bank of Teuque Creek, on a hill overlooking the Missouri river bottom about a mile and a half southeast of Marthasville. Not many years afterward he built a double hewed log house, the first of the kind that was erected in that part of the country, and which at the time was considered a very fine structure. Men came 30 miles to help raise it. The boards of the roof were fastened to the rafters with wooden pins, because nails could not be procured. This house remained standing, and was occupied as a dwelling, until about 6 years ago, when it was torn down to make room for a handsome brick edifice.

The next American settler in Warren Co. was FLANDERS CALLAWAY, who came about the same time Bryan did and built his cabin in the bottom about half-way between the bluff and river, and about half a mile from each. Sometime previous to 1802, WILLIAM AND ROBERT RAMSEY settled to the

northwest of the two families just mentioned, the former about 1/2 mile east of the present site of Marthasville, on land now owned by FREDERICK GRISWOLD, JR., and the latter about 2 miles northwest of Marthasville, where several members of his family were afterward massacred by the Indians. THOMAS KENNEDY settled in the northern part of the county about a mile southeast of the present town of Wright City, sometime between 1807 and in 1812. He built a fort on his place during the Indian war, and it became one of the most noted places of that period. Other settlements were made from time to time, but the population increased so slowly that when the county was organized, it did not contain more than 4,000 inhabitants. A place called New Boston, on Charrette Creek, was the first county seat; but in 1835 the town of Warrenton was laid out, and established as the permanent seat of justice. In 1838 a brick courthouse was erected there, at a cost of $2,600. It was at that time, one of the largest and most handsome buildings in all north Missouri, and the people complained about having to pay taxes to build so fine a house. This building was used for its original purposes until 1869, when it was torn down, and a more elegant structure, costing $350900, erected on its site.

The first county court was organized on the 20th of May, 1833, at the house of MORDECAI MORGAN, not far from the future town of Warrenton. The members of this court were TILMAN CULLUM, President; MORGAN BRYAN and THOMAS N. GRAVES. ABSALOM HAYS was sheriff, CARTY WELLS, clerk, and WALTER DILLON, deputy clerk. JAMES PITZER was county surveyor. The first license was granted to FREDERICK GRISWOLD, to keep tavern at Pinckney, for which he paid $15. WALTER DILLON also obtained a license at the same court to keep tavern at Hickory Grove. The first grand jury of Warren Co. was composed of THOMAS TALBOTT, foreman; GRIEF STEWART, SAMUEL DOHERTY, BENONI MCCLURE, ANDREW G. LONG, *ISAAC KENT, JR., WILLIAM CAMRON, JAMES MILLER, EDWARD PLEASANT, TURNER ROUNDTREE, JONATHAN D. GORDON, BENJAMIN HUTCHINSON, W. A. BURTON, THOMAS CHAMBERS, GEORGE CLAY, JAMES B. GRAVES, JOHN B. SHAW and JARED IRVINE. Pinckney was the first town founded within the limits of Warren county, after the French village of Charette. It was laid off in 1819, and named for MISS ATTOSSA PINCKNEY SHARP, daughter of BENJANIN SHARP. It was situated on the Missouri River, in the southern part of the county, and was the first county seat of Montgomery County. The original site of the town has fallen into the river, and a country post office in the vicinity, called Pinckney, is all that is left to mark the location of a once flourishing town. (for a history of Pinckney, see Montgomery County.)

*The above Isaac Kent, Jr. was the son of Isaac & Polly (Hopkins) Kent. Polly was the sister of Wm. Hopkins who married Jane Stone. From "Pioneer Families Of Missouri" by Rose and Bryan, copy available in the Mid-Cont. Lib. in Independence, "Hopkins - William Hopkins, of South Carolina, removed to Kentucky, where he married Jane Stone, and in 1810 he came to Missouri, and lived for some time in Captain James Callaway's house…" This Wm. Hopkins is my G.G.G.G. Grandfather. His Granddaughter , Mary Jane (Hopkins) married Benj. Cleveland Martin the son of Joseph & Jemima (Barnes) Martin. Why Wm. & Jane stayed with Capt. Calloway is not noted in the book. Jane (Stone) Hopkins, wife of Wm., had a sister named Susannah who married Francis Howell. Susannah and Francis’s daughter, Nancy, married Capt. Callaway. So, Wm. Hopkins was simply staying with his wife’s niece, for a while arriving in Missouri. "Pioneer Families of Missouri", by Wm. Bryan & Robert Rose, pub. by Bryan, Brand & Co., St. Louis, MO., 1876. pgs 154-156: Subject – "Howell…Nancy (Howell) was married twice, first to Capt. James Callaway, and after his death she married John H. Castlio."

Notes for JEMIMA BOONE:

Gary McCullah sent me the following email April 14, 2001, "Jim, as promised, here is the verification you requested." (Verification of a phone conversation Gary and I had earlier that week.) "I guess Grandma Martin (Willie Frank's wife, Mary) first told me about being kin to Daniel Boone back in the 70's. She said it was through his daughter Jemimah. She didn't remember all the details, but she had been told by some of Grandpa's family." This must have been the same story that was told to mom and her Uncle Joe and several others by my Uncle Joe’s father, Frank Martin. Frank would be my mom’s Grandfather. This was a story, that when I was a kid, I didn’t dare tell anyone! I only note this information here, in my notes, because I had never spoken to Gary before having had the opportunity just before April of 2001. I was surprised when he shared that piece of information with me. I don’t know why , but at the time, hardly anyone other then the Great Grandchildren in Benj. C. Martin’s family mentioned this oral history aloud. I wish I could go back in time and ask some of the older relatives, who are no longer with us, to share more on our family history.

"John B. Callaway was the eldest son of Flanders Callaway and Jemima Boone. He was a fine scribe and an excellent business man, and was Justice of the Peace and Judge of the County Court for many years. A large proportion of the old legal papers of St. Charles County have the name of John B. Callaway attached to them as Justice of the Peace. He had a mill and a distillery on Femme Osage Creek, and the water for the distillery was carried some distance in troughs, made by hollowing out poles, which were kept free of mud by crawfish, placed in the troughs for that purpose. Mr. Callaway died in 1825. His wife was Elizabeth Caton, and their children were: Emaline, Verlenia, James and

Octavia. Emaline married Hayden Boone, a son of Squire Boone, who was a nephew of Daniel Boone. Verlenia married John Bryan, a son of Henry Bryan. James married Mary McKinney, daughter of Alexander McKinney. They live in Mexico, Missouri, where Mr. Callaway, who is a capitalist is engaged in the banking business. Octavia married Schuyler Rice, who was from New England."

"Giles Jones was an Englishman, but came to America and served as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. His son John came to Missouri in 1817, and studied medicine under Dr. Young. Dr. Jones married Miss Minerva Callaway, daughter of Flanders Callaway, and grand daughter of Daniel Boone, and settled near Marthasville. They had the following children: James, Caroline, Emily, Daniel, John S., Ellen, Paul, Samuel, George and Anna. The Doctor became celebrated as a physician, and had an extensive practise. He was also very fond of hunting, and had a horse named Nick, that he generally rode on his hunting expeditions. Sometimes, just as he would be in the act of firing at a deer or some other game, Nick would move and cause him to miss his aim. The horse did this one day just as he was drawing a bead on a fine buck, and the buck escaped unhurt, which so enraged the Doctor that he determined to give him a whipping. So he alighted and cut a keen switch, and placed the bridle under his feet to keep old Nick from running away while he whipped him; but the horse jerked his head up

at the first cut of the switch, threw the Doctor on the back of his head, and nearly killed him. After that, when he tried to whip old Nick, he held the bridle in his hand. Dr. Jones took a prominent part in ferreting out the couterfeiters and horse thieves with which the country was infested from about 1835 to 1844, when the "Slicker" organization put a stop to their rascally practices. By so doing he incurred the enmity of the gang, and on January 22, 1842, he was shot and killed in his own yard, by an assassin who was concealed in the woods near the house. The whole country was thrown into a state of excitement by this murder, and the repeated outrages which led to it, and companies of regulators and patrols were organized in every community. but notwithstanding the most delight and thorough search was made for the murderer, no trace of him could ever be found. Several suspected parties were arrested and tried, but they generally had but little difficulty in proving their innocence.

 

JOHN JONES and MINERVA CALLAWAY were married October 22, 1818, St. Charles Dist., Missouri

[I wonder if this is the John JONES who married James Ridley MARTIN and Murcena BROWN in Franklin County. See James R. MARTIN s/o Jsph. & Jemima (BARNES) MARTIN notes.]

Notes for the parents of Jemima (Barnes) Martin – James & Sarah (Callaway) Barnes

SARAH "SALLY" CALLAWAY daughter of FLANDERS ISHAM CALLAWAY was born Abt. 1780 in Boonesborough, Fayette Co., KY, and died 1834(?) in Missouri.(?) [I’m not sure about where I got this death date, any longer. I can not locate a source so please regard this with caution.] She married JAMES BARNES, JR. Abt. 1798 in probably Kentucky. James was son of JAMES BARNES of VA. He was born Abt. 1776 in probably, Boonesborough, Fayette Co., KY, and died (?).

Notes for JAMES BARNES, JR.:

*From "Pioneer Families of Missouri" by Bryan and Rose, published 1876 by Bryan, Brand & Co., St. Louis, MO. pg. 242: Barnes.--- James Barnes, of Virginia, settled in Kentucky at an early date. He had three sons - James, Jr., Noble, and John. The two latter settled in Illinois, where they lived and died. James, Jr., settled in Missouri. He married Sarah Callaway, daughter of Flander Callaway, and they had twenty-two children, sixteen of whom lived to be grown, viz.: James, John, Larkin, William, Callaway F., Flanders C., Lilborn, Volney, Andrew, Rhoda, Jemima, Minerva, Margaret, Houlda, Cynthia, and Elizabeth. Flanders C. married Obedience Grigg, and lives in Montgomery County. He has in his possession a knee-buckle and silk stocking that belonged to his grandfather, Daniel Boone. In his youth Mr. Barnes was a great swimmer, and from being in the water so much he contracted inflammatory rheumatism, from which he suffers greatly in his old age.

Assuming that the above bio does not contain mistakes, we can assume that James and his father were the only two, from their immediately family that came to Missouri. This would seem to be supported by the 1817 St. Charles Census.

From the Will of Flanders Callaway, which appears in the Warren Co., Land Deed records:

I Flanders Callaway of the County of Montgomery in the State of Missouri being weak in body ...." ...Fourthly, I give to my daughter Sally Barns the wife of James Barnes and his heirs forever one hundred arpents of land to include the improvement on which her husband James Barnes now lives to be laid off in an equitable and con__?____ form by two or more commissioners to be mutually chosen by my after named executors and the said Sally and James Barns.

The Will was written in 1824, so, we can assume that James and Sarah were present in Montgomery Co., MO during that time period. The below land deed indicates the possibility that they could have moved to a different location by 1835. We can reasonably assume that the James Barnes listed in the Montgomery County 1830 census is our James Barnes. See census extraction below.

This Indenture made and entered into this twenty third day of February in the year of our Lord one thousand Eight hundred and thirty five between James Barns and Sarah his wife of the County of Warren in the State of Missouri of the one part and John Jones of the State and County of aforesaid of the other part.

The census should be read as follows, left to right: Last Name MI, First Name, Male 45+, Male 18-45, Male –18, Female 14+, Female -14, Free Col. Male, Free Col., Freemale, Slaves 45+, Slaves 16-45, Slaves 10-16

Barnes James 1173500000

1 male 45+, I believe this James Barnes, Sr. b. VA , he would have been born before 1772, combined with the 1830 Census he son was born 1770-1780, so I would assume James Sr. was born sometime around or before 1760.

1 male 18-45, I believe this is James Barnes, Jr. b. KY 1870-1880.

7 males –18 b. abt. 1799 -1817

3 females 14+ One Female would be Sarah "Sallie" A. Callaway wife of James Barnes b. 1777-1780. Per the 1830 census records she is listed as b. 1770-1780, we know that her parents, Jemima married Flanders abt. 1777, per the Draper manuscripts. I believe one of the two remaining females would be Jemima Barnes b. Sept. 17th, 1801 age. c. 16.

5 females –14 1803-1817

Now, compared to the 1830 St. Charles census.

James BARNES

3 males under 5 3 males b. abt. 1825-30 [Could these three by Morgan Bryan Martin b. April 9th, 1826, James R. Martin b. Dec. 3rd, 1818 & Theodore M. Martin b. Jan. 26th, 1830? Just speculation.]

3 males 10 to 15 3 males b. abt. 1815-20

3 males 15 to 20 3 males b. abt. 1810-15

1 male 20 to 30 1 male b. abt. 1800-10

2 males 30 to 40 2 males b. abt. 1790-1800 [Could one of these be Jsph. Martin b. 1792? I can not find my Jsph. Martin in the 1830 Fed. Census, but, I do find him in the 1840 Warren Co., Census. ]

1 male 50 to 60 James BARNES b. between 1870 & 1880

[In the 1817 St. Charles census we had 7 males 1799 – 1817, according to Rose and Bryan there were 9 surviving boys they were James, John, Larkin, William, Callaway F., Flanders C., Lilborn, Volney, Andrew. Viewing the 1830, in conjunction with the 1817 census extractions, we can account for 2 more male children. In fact we now have 3 additional males, not counting James, father of the children. Now, how the math works out would depend on how many children noted in the 1817 census have possibly passed away and how many have married and moved out.

1 female under 5 1 female b. abt. 1825 -1830

1 female 20 to 30 1 female b. abt. 1800-1810 [Could this possibly be Jemima Barnes b. 1801, with her husband, living with her parents?]

1 female 30 to 40 1 female b. abt. 1790-1800

1 female 50 to 60 Sarah (CALLAWAY) BARNES b. between 1870 & 1880

According to Rose and Bryan there were 7 surviving daughters: Rhoda, Jemima, Minerva, Margaret, Houlda, Cynthia, and Elizabeth. In 1817, we have the possibility of 7 surviving daughters - 2 born before 1803 and 5 born 1803-1817. But, the numbers again would depend on how many children noted in the 1817 census have possibly passed away and how many have married and moved out. We have at least one new female noted in the age bracket 1825-1830.

My number one concern regarding finding some of the marriages for these Barnes children is that they could have occurred in the Montgomery County and therefore difficult to locate. I understand many records were lost due to multiple fires to the Courthouse in Montgomery County.

Tarrant Co., tax list Dated June 4, 1853 we have Larkin, Anderson, William D. Barnes, J. W. Callaway.

The 1854 tax list has a Larkin, Anderson, W. D., W. P. and a William Barnes listed. Under Callaway there is a J.W. and a R.H. There are also 3 Martins, but, I know of no connection to my Martin's, they are John, P.B.B., W.R.

1860 there is only a Jos. Barns, but there are several Callaway's. The tax list of 1860 give a little more information, including the original grantee. I went through each of these and found the following:

If Andrew was listed as 55 – I would say this has to be our Anderson. I need to check the 1880 Fed. Census for Anderson ]

If the above Anderson Barnes is "our" Anderson, and I do believe that to be the case, then we have census extractions for him in 1850, ’60 and ’70. Also, please note that there was a James C. traveling with Larkin & Anderson in 1850 – in TX. I suspect that James C. is the son of Larkin, or possibly Anderson. Larkin’s age fluctuates between census extractions, so, I’m not sure. I have found the land record for Larkin and his purchase in Los Angles Co., CA dated 1862. Also, I believe the above Cynthia Laughlin is our Cynthia Logston wife of Amos A. Logston. I am going to add this census extraction to her notes as well. It appears after a brief stop in San Louis Obispo Co., CA, Cynthia and Anderson join their brother Larkin in Los Angeles Co., CA. It is rather interesting to me that Morgan B. Martin s/o Jsph. & Jemima (Barnes) Martin is enumerated in the 1870 & 1880 San Louis Obispo Co., CA census. He is in CA by 1858 per the b. of his son Curtis in the 1870 census. But, I can not find Morgan B. Martin or Larkin Barnes in the 1860 CA census anywhere.

I was following up on the Presley Anderson Barnes listed in Oliver’s "Some Boone Descendants & Kindred of the St. Charles District." The book states that Anderson Barnes, son of James & Sarah (Callaway) Barnes was buried in Browns Valley Cemetery in Yuba County, CA. So, I did some digging to find out what Barnes/Barns families were present in Yuba Co., CA, in and around this time frame. I found the following:

1880 Fed. Census, CA, Yuba Co., Marysville
A. P. Barnes 56 OH ME MA Undertaker [If this is "Presley Anderson Barns" noted in the Oliver’s history as having been buried in Yuba Co., CA, then I have suspicions about whether that information is correct. Look at the b.pl. for A. P. Barnes and his parents. Also, see the 1870 census listed below.]
J. Barnes wife 53 KY NC VA
Kitty James other 11 KS IL IL "at school"

We have an Anderson Barnes in the 1870 Fed. Census, age 51, in Los Angles Co., CA., already. Anderson appears with Larkin in 1850 in TX and in 1870 there appears the same Anderson Barnes in the same township as Larkin in L.A., Co. If this A. P. Barnes is the Anderson Presley Barnes noted in Oliver’s history, then I doubt that he is the son of James & Sarah (Callaway) Barnes.

Notes for WILLIAM BARNES:

I called a fellow Martin researcher, Bobbie B. Lynch, and let her know I found a marriage record for Wm. Barnes to Marissa Callaway in Warren Co., MO. Bobbie B. Lynch, who has a copy of Spraker's book, wrote back, "William Barnes m Marissa Callaway in 1834 in Warren Co. MO (he) had son Lewis Barnes b. 1844 in Franklin Co. MO."

"I believe the below Matrissa is the widow of William Barnes. 1880 Fed. Census for Calwood, Callaway County, Missouri, pg. 476C" [These were the original notes, we now know that this is indeed the case, thanks to help of Margy Miles and Betty Brooks. I will update my notes from possible to proven.]

[This was the original note that I had under Wm.'s notes, "Could the Sarah Jemima Barnes, who was murdered by a slave, be the d/o or niece of Wm. & Matrissa (Callaway) Barnes??? Look for Wm. In the 1850 census and see!!" Again, thanks to Betty Brooks and Margy Miles, we now know that Sarah Jemima Barnes was the d/o of Wm and Matrissa. Many researchers had listed Jemima BARNES, that was murdered in Callaway County, MO, as the daughter of James & Sarah (Callaway) Barnes eliminating our Jemima (BARNES) MARTIN as the d/o James and Sarah. Here is an overview of the information and detective work by Margy and Betty regarding Sarah Jemima Barnes:

Source Betty Brooks and Margy Miles, July of 2003, "[From]... Oliver's on page 144 is a marriage - C303. William Barnes m. Mar 6 1834 Warren County, Missouri to Jemima Boone MATRISSA Callaway, a cousin b. July 4 1818. Page 185 says they moved to Franklin CO.,

Plus, If I am following this correctly by the numbers, Matrissa {C334} is listed as a daughter of Larkin Callaway and Susannah Howell - page 180- - with a son Dr. Lewis S. Barnes in active practice 1865, Callaway and Montgomery Cos. Gave up his profession at the end of two years, farmed in 1875...

This would make Matrissa a granddaughter of Flanders and Jemima and Susan Jemima a gr grandaughter wouldn't it... [as followes] Susan Jemima Barnes [d/o] Matrissa Callaway and William Barnes, [Matrissa d/o] Larkin Callaway and Susannah Howell [and Larkin Callaway s/o] Flanders Callaway and Jemima Boone."

Margy Miles sent me a note dated July 31st, 2003, she wrote, " .... the newspaper account says that murdered Jemima Barnes *lived with her mother and brother.*

Larkin S. Callaway (son of Flanders & Jemima (Boone) Callaway) marr Susan Howell. One of Larkin's children was MATRISSA Callaway, born 4 July 1818.

Matrissa marr her cousin William BARNES (1834 Warren County) and they had a son named LEWIS who was born 27 July 1840 in Franklin Co. This would have made him about 20 in 1860! He became a doctor and in 1864 began a practice in Callaway County.

Lillian Hays Oliver (Some Boone Descendants & Kindred) does not mention Lewis having a sister named Jemima -- because by the time Lewis became a well known doctor - his sister Jemima was already dead.

My conclusions:

Maticia and Matrissa were the same person.

Therefore, the murdered girl (Jemima Barnes) was a GREAT granddaughter of Flanders and Jemima ... not a granddaughter. She was the daughter of William & Matrissa (Callaway) BARNES ..... AND most importantly the Jemima Barnes who was murdered by the slave was NOT the Jemima Barnes who was a daughter of Sarah (Callaway) Barnes, daughter of Flanders and Jemima!!

This means that Sarah's daughter, Jemima Barnes, porbably married someone else and I believe it was probably Joseph MARTIN.

per your Martin Bible:

Joseph Martin was born in the State of Viginia on the 7th day of July AD 1792

Jemima Martin was born on the 17th day of September AD 1801 - Married 7 July 1825

So far I have found no dates for Sarah's daughter Jemima BUT Sarah and James Barnes married abt. Or before 1800 per the census extractions. The dates that I have for their children are:

1. Sanders Larkin Barnes,

2. James Barnes

3. John Barnes

4. William Barnes (married MATRISSA Callaway 6 Mar 1834 & had Jemima & Lewis)

5. Callaway Flanders Barens

6. Lilburn Barnes

7. Volney Barnes

8. Presley Anderson Barnes (B. abt 1815)

9. Rhoda Barnes

10. JEMIMA BARNES

As you can see - it is entirely possible that Sarah's Jemima was born 17 Sept 1801 as your Jemima was according to the Martin Bible. (Sanders' date is probably wrong - they may even be twins - we know that Sarah was supposed to have had several sets of twins among her 22 children.)

We have to find documentation that Sarah (Callaway) Barnes had a daughter named Jemima who married Joseph Martin. I think it can be done. We need to look in FRANKLIN CO. That seems to be where the majority of this BARNES family ended up -- just across the river from Marthasville at Washington, MO....

almost hollering distance. :-) There should be a marriage bond someplace (probably St Charles CO. or even Franklin Co.) for Joseph and Jemima and the marriage bond will give the names of Jemima's parents.

I think your line is like this:

1. Jemima (Barnes) Martin (b. 1801)

2. Sarah (Callaway) Barnes (b. abt 1780)

3. Jemima (Boone) Callaway (1762-1834)

4. Daniel Boone

What do you think, grandson of Daniel Boone? :-) Margy"

Margy followed up with this note, "MATICIA had a daughter, J_____, age 23 (making her born abt *1837*) living with her and a son, Lewis, age 19 (making him born abt 1840-41).

Interesting side note --- Maticia / Matrissa was a granddaughter of Jemima (Boone) Callaway. Jemima (Boone) Callaway died in 1834 - the same year that Matrissa married William BARNES.... makes sense that she named her daughter Jemima.

Also ....... on the 1860 Callaway Co census in the household with Maticia and her daughter, J____ and her son Lewis F. ____ is a young physician, age 24, named HUNT. (Remember the newspaper account mentioned that Jemima was enagaged to a young doctor when she was murdered.) Well look at this:

"Dr. Larkin Wesley HUNT was reared in the home of his uncle, Dr. Lewis Howell Callaway, near Rhineland, Missouri, and began the practice of medicine at Rhineland when he was 19 years old and continued .... until he was 90 years old. He was born at Louisiana, Missouri **18 Oct 1836** (date makes him 24 in 1860!) ..... the son of MELISSA CALLAWAY and Leslie Hunt." (Dr. Hunt died in Moody, Arkansas & is buried there.)

Malissa Callaway was a daughter of LARKIN Calaway --- and therefore Malissa was Matrissa/Maticia (Callaway) Barnes' SISTER. That is why he was living with them in 1860 when Jemima Barnes was killed. (He and Jemima, engaged to be married, were first cousins!) - Margy"

I can not thank Margy and Betty enough, they have been a wonderful help!

One more brief note, is it possible that Wm traveled with his brothers Larkin & Andrew to Tarrant Co., TX and then returned to MO later? See Anderson Barnes’ notes.

Larkin Barnes to Tilpha Lawson 10 Dec. 1834, Warren County, MO [Strong possibility for the son of James and Sarah (Callaway) Barnes considering the giving name, date and location of marriage.]

Notes for LARKIN BARNES:

The following was contributed by Barbara Knox to the Tarrant Co., TX, US Gen Web site; https://sites.rootsweb.com/~txtarran/colony.htm. "The following persons were issued land certificates as Peters' Colonists in 1848 or before. Most of them were issued by Thomas William Ward, Commissioner for Peters' Colony, and a few by the Tarrant County Court. If the original colonist was deceased, certificates were patented by heirs - or they may have done so if the original certificate holder lived in another county.

From Margy Miles site, http://www.pastseeker.com/boone/children/jemima/sarah/sarah.shtml, Sanders Larkin Barnes, born 24 July 1801, Boone County, Kentucky. He married first to Tilpha Lawson on 10 December 1834 in Warren County, Missouri. He married second to Mrs. Elizabeth Jones, widow of David Jones, about 1854 probably in Tarrant County, Texas where he moved about 1847. Sanders Larkin Barnes died November 1885 in Azusa, California, having moved to that area about 1859. He is buried in Fairmont Cemetery near Azusa. (Note: If you have access to these California cemeteries, I am looking for someone who can take pictures for me.)

For additional note regarding Tarrant Co., TX and Larkin Barnes – see Anderson Barnes’ notes.

I can not find Larkin Barnes in 1880 in El Monte or Azusa, CA. The only Barnes in El Monte, that I have located is Leonidas Barnes. Here is a little history on him:

William Penn Barnes
Brought to California from his birthplace in Dallas, Texas, when but two years of age, William P. Barnes is among the few remaining original pioneers of this district.
Born October 25, 1857, the son of S.L. Barnes [Sanders Larkin Barnes], farmer, and a native of Kentucky, and Sarah E. (Bohannon) Barnes [This must be Sarah Elizabeth (Bohannan) JONES, who m. Larkin in TX], a native of Illinois, [b. pl. in 1870 listed as TN and then in 1910, William list’s his mothers b.pl. as AL.] William was brought to El Monte in 1859, [Can not find Larkin in 1860, we know he left TX about that time. But, in the 1870 census Wm. is not listed in the HH of Larkin Barnes, where is he? Was he simply missed?] in a covered wagon train comprising some one hundred and ten wagons. This train, drawn almost exclusively by ox-teams was stopped twice on the way by Indians but fortunately no casualties resulted. The first time they were stopped near Dead Man Springs, and the second time near Apache Pass, (now Camp Buoy). During the trip through the Indian country, the women would do the driving while the men went ahead and followed up the rear of the train to guard against sudden attacks. On each of the two occasions mentioned, the Indians appeared, circled the train three times on horseback and then, evidently deciding that they were outnumbered and outmatched for a successful attack, they rode away. At Yuma, the train divided, some going to San Diego, and the remainder continued to El Monte, the Mecca of a large majority of the California-bound immigrants of that day. Here Mr. Barnes’ father engaged for a number of years in farming, William, the subject of this review, attending the early public school of El Monte. In this connection Mr. Barnes states that his first teacher was a Mr. Dilley, who was paid a wage of $2.50 per month, by the parents for each child, free board during the time being provided by different families in the district.
In 1868, Mr. Barnes’ parents moved to a 160-acre tract in Azusa Valley [In 1870 there were still enumerated in El Monte Twnshp. Larkin and Elizabeth were buried in Azusa, see below.]where, upon attaining his majority, William P. followed farming for a time (1886) entering the real estate business, [This matches his 1910 census extraction.] which though in poor health, he still continues to manage in the town of Azusa.
Mr. Barnes was married in 1884 to Miss Mary Blanche Hudson, a native of Tennessee, whose parents were Thomas H. and Martha Ellen Hudson, natives of Mississippi and Tennessee, respectively. To Mr. and Mrs. Barnes were born four children, but one of whom is still living, Irene Blanche, of Azusa. Mrs. Barnes was taken by death in 1898.
Mr. Barnes is affiliated with the order of Odd Fellows, and in religion both he and Mrs. Barnes are members of the Baptist Church. [Two interesting points. Flander’s, the great grandfather of Wm., requested a Baptist minister for his funeral services in his Will. Morgan B. Martin s/o Jsph & Jemima (Barnes) Martin, was a member of the Odd Fellows in Cambria, in San Luis Obispo Co., just north and slightly west of Los Angeles County.] Mrs Barnes was active and influential in the early organization and development of the first church in El Monte.
Mr. Barnes has rendered many years of valuable services in his community, serving terms in the capacity of constable, school trustee and city councilman.

Fairmount Cemetery, Glendora, CA ,Contributed by Penny Dodd US Gen Web Site, Los Angeles Co., CA http://cagenweb.com/re/losangeles/langec2.htm
"Fairmount Cemetery is located about halfway between Azusa and Glendora, California, which was known as San Felipe Hill even before our early pioneers . This was a landmark for the early Spaniards. Henry Dalton was granted this land and many acres of surrounding property that was under his ownership until about 1880. The federal government pronounced this public land and opened it up for homesteading. Many of our early pioneers who came here after the Civil War anticipated this and 'squatted' on what they later filed as a homestead. This is now within the city limits of Glendora. We, the trustees, are attempting to save this historic spot and have it registered as a state and federal landmark."
This is an excerpt from a lengthy article written by Elizabeth Shorey that appeared in the Glendora Signal in May and June 1990. The following survey is an effort to recreate the actual plot count but in no way does it represent what would be seen today. The information contained herein was obtained from a 1932 survey and tedious correspondence by Elizabeth Shorey with relatives and descendents of those buried there. Elizabeth Shorey has recently discovered evidence that this property was used as a burial ground as early as 1840.
This submitter visited the cemetery and was quite disturbed at the condition. It has been vandalized many times, headstones broken and/or stolen. Graves have been desecrated by vandals and skulls taken.
In the late 1950's, the owners of the nursery, which surrounds the cemetery, tried to acquire the property by "imminent domain". Citrus trees were planted (which require a lot of water) and a watering system installed as "improvements" to the property. Subsequently the watering system has caused a tremendous amount of erosion. Many of the gravesites have been covered up by mud and others are being undermined due to the erosion.
The Trustees of Fairmount Cemetery have succeeded in getting the cemetery on the City of Glendora Historical Register and are now fighting a costly endeavor with the State of California and the Federal Government to get the same thing done.

Three children were noted in Wm. P. Barnes’ bio. I was surprised note to see a noted resting place for Wm. Note that Wm’s bio lists his mothers surname as Bohannon and if you visit the site you will see many Bohannon’s enumerated in the cemetery. The most surprising noted burial, for me, was this one: LOGSDUN, Cynthia Barnes, b. 1810, d. Dec. 17, 1877, age 67 years, 10 months, 10 days.

I believe this is Larkin’s sister Cynthia Barnes, d/o James and & Sarah (Callaway) Barnes. See Cynthia’s notes.

Callaway Barnes to Cynthia Mears 25 Dec 1834, Carroll County, MO -

Notes for CALLAWAY F. BARNES:

Carroll County is quite a ways west, but, it does sit on the Missouri River, a natural migration trail. The date of marriage is very early to occur in Carroll County, but, it is at a time when James appears to possibly have been considering moving from Warren County. See James & Sarah Barnes land deed. I believe this is the Callaway F. Barnes, brother to Flanders Callaway. I had sometimes wondered if this was a mistake in the entry of names for children of James Barnes. In the 1840 Carroll County census I found a Callaway, a Lilburn Barnes and a Anderson Barnes. The more I look into this line the more I believe that Anderson Barnes is our "Rose and Bryan’s", Andrew!! Lilborn and Anderson are enumerated next door to each other. Callaway appears on another page. 1840 Fed. Census, Carrol County, MO Callaway Barnes 1000110000000-1000100000000

This cemetery is located in Franklin Township; Sec 26-T63N-R24W. It is part of the road, about a mile in a pasture. The cemetery is poorly fenced and completely untended. Several graves are unmarked and funeral markers impossible to read. Thomas Boswell gave the plot (approximately 1 acre) for the cemetery. He lived in a little two-room house near by and he and wife Eliza are buried in the cemetery. The cemetery was recorded in 1964 by Mrs. Vernal Ralston, Mrs. Delbert Hasler and Mrs. B. F. Hoover.

What happened to the children of Callaway & Cynthia (Mears) Barnes if both passed away by 1855? There are several Mears families that appear in the same general area as Larkin in the 1850 census as well as buried in this cemetery. If Larkin passed away in 1855 then their children would have been, at the time of his death, Eliza J. 15, Mary A. 13, Gemima/Jemima 12, James C. 10. Also, if the Henry, enumerated in James Wood's house in 1850, is also a Barnes, he would have been 6. I wonder if they are living with James Woods in 1860 and even perhaps in 1850, because Cynthia is already ill? I've seen this happen before in census'. The children of one family are living with another family but are enumerated in both households. Could James Woods' wife be a Mears? This needs to be followed up on. (please note 1850 census extraction of Larkin Barnes and James Woods)

Cynthia Barnes

I found two early marriages for a Cynthia Barnes, it appears either could be candidate. However, I feel that the Cynthia in Carroll Co. was the d/o James and Sarah Barnes. Carroll County, MO, appears to be where Callaway, Lilborn & possibly Andrew/Anderson ended up - by 1840, see their notes. Also, there is a Cynthia Barnes Logsdon buried in the same cemetery as Larkin Barnes near Azusa, Los Angeles Co., CA. For additional details see Larkin’s notes. The marriage for Cynthia Barnes to Amos A. Logston, was dated the 9th of Feb., 1843, in Carroll Co., MO. The burial information is listed as follows: LOGSDUN, Cynthia Barnes, b. 1810, d. Dec. 17, 1877, age 67 years, 10 months, 10 days.

However, I did find a marriage record for a "Anderson Barnes" in Howard Co., MO & this is were the other Cynthia Barnes marriage occurs.

I also found a Cynthia Barnes in the Watson Cemetery, Tarrant County, TX, where it appears Larkin and [Anderson/Andrew?] Barnes traveled However, if either of the above Cynthia's are the d/o of James & Sarah then the following Cynthia would be eliminated. Source Tarrant Co., TX US Gen Web site https://sites.rootsweb.com/~txtarran/cemetery/watson3.htm : Barns, Cynthia 1805 - 1892. No other Barns/Barnes listed in the Cemetery. It is interesting that L. Barnes sold land to a Watson and this Cynthia is buried in the Watson Cemetery. I have no idea how she fits in, but, I believe that this Cynthia is not the d/o James and Sarah. Because of the date of death, I believe she could be connected to a different Barnes family that appears later in Tarrant Co., TX. Additional research is needed.

Flanders Barnes to Obedience Briggs 16 Sept. 1845, Warren County, MO - [This is Flanders C. Barnes s/o James & Sarah (Callaway) Barnes, see Rose & Bryan Bio for James Barnes. Both the 1860 & 1880 census list his birthplace as KY. If he was indeed born appox. 1820, was James and Sarah (Callaway) Barnes going back and forth between KY and MO? Did James come to MO for a period of time and then return to KY and back again?]

Notes for FLANDERS C. BARNES:

Apparently, shortly after Flanders married Obedience he purchased land in Franklin County. I need to follow up on where this is located and who their neighbors might have been.

Ruth Barnes, daughter of Flanders, noted in the above 1860 & 1870 census extractions married William Patterson Veale. I found the following information on Mr. Robert L. Veale’s webstite: http://www.timetravelers.com/CORNWAL/cvattach.htm. I then contacted Mr. Veal and asked his permission to add the Warren Co., Website and this research paper.

Source, Robert Veale, Las Vegas, NV and the "Veale Heritage, Volume II, No. 4, October 1979, page 37."

WILLIAM PATTERSON VEALE was born August 29, 1845 in St. Louis County, Missouri, the second son of Jacob Veale, born in Cornwall and Lydia Rogers Patterson. He is one of the twelve children, all born in the old Patterson Settlement, St. Ferdinand Township, near Cold Water Creek. The subject grew up in a large community of Patterson aunts, uncles and cousins, addressing older cousins as aunt or uncle, and identifying each by their spouse’s name, such as, Aunt Martha Bill Patterson, Aunt Annie Dan Patterson, etc., there were so many Patterson’s of the same name.

He was drafted into the Union Army in 1863 and saw service in the American Civil Was, being a member of the Iron Mountain Brigade, a unit stationed south of St. Louis to guard workmen who repaired a railroad previously torn up by the Confederate troops. He was torn between allegiances, but of Southern sympathy but in the Northern Army, and for some reason did not apply for a veterans pension. He received a pension late in life, but this was in connection of the death of his son Hugh’s death in the first World War.

He married RUTH GRIGG BARNES, daughter of FLANDERS BARNES and OBEDIENCE GRIGG, in December 9, 1875 at High Hill, Missouri, a young lady who was a student in a school he taught shortly after the Civil War. She was the g-g grand daughter of Col. Daniel Boone of Kentucky, descended through CALLAWAY and BARNES families. William & Ruth had twelve children, half of them who died in childhood, and most were born in St. Louis County. They were: Cora, Edgar, Laura, Arthur, Nellie, Hugh, Temperance, Willa, Ollie, Thomas and Haley. William & Ruth moved to Barton County, Missouri about 1893 where his father, Jacob, had several years before has previously assigned a farm for each of his children. From about the time Haley, her twelveth child, was born, Ruth’s health was failing and she died on Thanksgiving Day 1903, age 48. William sold his farm and moved to California right after the first- world War, staying briefly with his son Arthur and family in Santa Paula. He was followed shortly by his daughter Fannie, her husband and child, after which arrival he purchased a house for them and stayed with them for some years. In 1930, after the death of daughter Fannie, he left California to stay with his daughter Willa, husband and children. He stayed in Pittsburg, Kansas with Willa until his death April 28, 1942. Aged 96 years and 8 months. He was a man of tragedy, having lost his wife in early years and having outlived all of his children but one. Evidence shows he was from sturdy stock, as he had a brother who lived to his 98th year, a sister who died at 80 and four others who died in their seventies.

He was a government surveyor for a short time before his school teaching. He was a farmer for about 50 years. In his middle years besides farming, he held office as a township judge and was a lay minister.

12) Howard Haley Veale, born January 6, 1895 in Barton Co., MO, died February 6, 1913, in Iantha, MO. Howard was never married and is buried in Iantha, MO.

Elizabeth Barnes to Rev. Jonathan Jones 22 Apr. 1846, Warren County, MO. [Strong possibility for a d/o or granddaughter of James and Sarah (Callaway) Barnes]

I wonder if the husband of Elizabeth is the John Jones who married James Ridley Martin to Murcena Brown in Franklin Co., MO? James R. Martin was the s/o Joseph & Jemima (Barnes) Martin. See James Ridley Martin’s notes for additional details.

Lilborn Barnes - I have not located a marriage record for a Lilborn Barnes at this time.

Notes for Lilborn Barnes:

1840 Carroll County census I found a Callaway, a Lilburn Barnes and a Anderson Barnes. I believe it is possible that Anderson is Andrew, based on this 1840 Carroll Co., MO census. I very well could be wrong. Lilborn and Anderson are enumerated next door to each other. Callaway appears on another page. 1840 Fed. Census, Carrol County, MO, pg. 297, Lilborn Barnes - 0000200001000-0010100100000:

2 males 20-30 [b. 1810-1820 One of these has to be Lilborn in order for him to be a son of James & Sarah.]

1 male 70-80 b. 1760-1770 [b. 1760-1770 I wonder if this could be James Barnes, having sold land in Warren Co., in 1835. However in the 1830 census he is listed as b. 1770-1780.]

1 female 10-15 [b. 1825-1830]

1 female 20-30 [b. 1810-1820]

1 female 50-60 [b. 1780-1790. Could this be Sarah, I just don’t know. In the 1830 census she is listed as b. 1770-1780. She could have been b. 1780 and hence the fluctuation.]

Also see notes under Anderson Barnes regarding Tarrant Co., TX.

John Barnes

A couple of possible John Barnes marriage records that need to be followed up on:
John Barnes to Mary A. Butcher the 11th of Feb., 1848, Ray Co., MO. [Ray County, MO is the next County west of Carroll County, MO. I checked for a John Barnes/Barnes in Ray County for the yr. 1850. I found a Susannah Barns age 18, b. TN, but no John. Rather interesting side note, I found a Bohannon family on the same pg. However, I also found a Barron family in Ray Co., in 1850. A Thomas Barron b. TN and I’ve seen Barron’s listed as Barns many times. I very familiar with many of the Barron’s of Wa. Co., TN. Could the above John Barnes be John Barron?]

Other possible John Barnes to follow up on.

John W. Barns to Mary Jane Elliot the 26th of Dec., 1842 in Daviess Co., MO

John Barns to Matilda Higgins the 9th of April, 1843 in Daviess Co., MO

We know that Larkin Barnes traveled to Tarrant Co., TX. Source Margy Miles, Tarrant Co. & TX US Gen Web Site tax records. I wonder if the following John S. Barnes is the brother, son, nephew or some other relation to Larkin. Source - https://sites.rootsweb.com/~txtarran/probate/estate017.htm

25 May 1851."Polly (X) Barnes, wife of J. S. Barnes, decd." relinquishes right of administration to estate. 17 June 1851. Cornelius Conelly applies for administration stating that Barnes died without any lawful will....that estate does not exceed $150 in value. He is appointed administrator; bond $300, Isaac Thomas and D. E. Norton securities. Appraisal estate made 28 July 1851. It included livestock, abnd 'surtificate" valued at $224.75.

29 March 1852. Stephen B. McCommas and Mary C. McCommas, his wife, formerly Mary C. Barnes, and widow of John S. Barnes, petition court to set apart to her and her children one year's support of proceeds of sale of property of estate and also such property as is exempt by law from forced sale. She states she has two infant children [names not given]. [If the C. is for Cynthia Barnes then she may possibly be the Cynthia Barnes buried in the Watson Cem. - See Cynthia's notes. But, it would seem more likely that she would have been buried as Mary C. McCommas.]

27 April 1851. Buyers at sale of personal property: Conner, Montgomery, Wm. Burke, Jno Lock, Jno York, Ventioner. Colony certificate went to Law. Sales total: $169.37-1/2.

1 June 1852. Administrator's receipt from McCommas for $105.12-1/2 as amount paid on widow's dower from estate. Administrator reimbursed for two trips to Dallas in connection with estate.

27 Sept. 1852. James Ventioner, Joseph Farmer and Abraham Harris appointed by court to appraise additional property in hands of administator. Items consisted of 1 pot rack, a pair stretchers and 1 single tree.

28 March 1853. Payment to James Ventioner "seven dollars in full of funeral expense."

However the following website states that John S. Barnes was orig. from AL. More research is needed here!!!! John S. Bares biography link http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/3958/Barnsr.htm#John

One more quick note. The Tarrant Co., TX, US Gen Web site has a land map and an index. The index is located at - https://sites.rootsweb.com/~txtarran/1885tarrant8.htm

To see the specific areas click on this link - https://sites.rootsweb.com/~txtarran/1885tarrant.htm

I have not reviewed this well enough to know for sure, but, this appears to be a map that shows not just land entries that are current. It appears also to reference early land entries, and if so, then the below entries are of interest. Note how most of the Barnes seem to be living in the same area. Also, the Callaway’s seem to be in the same general area as well. I need to look into this further.

While I was searching Grundy Co., MO, I came across this interesting Barnes Cemetery. I know of NO connection at this time, but, something to keep an eye on for now.

Here are few interesting marriage possibilities for our James Barnes, Jr.

James to Polly Rushen the 25th of March, 1838, Carroll Co., MO

James Barnes to Sarah Davis the 7th of April, 1842, Franklin Co., MO [We have to be careful with the Barnes of Franklin Co., MO. There is a James H. Barnes b. VA, that I have seen listed as our James Barnes, Sr. I can not lay my hands on it right now, but, there was an article on microfilm that detailed this James Barnes and it named his wife and father. From that, I was able eliminate this James Barnes. I believe he was hung during the Civil War as a Confederate sympathizer.]

I have no reason to believe that this James Barnes is the son of James & Sarah (Callaway) Barnes. However, I list this here because the following census extraction I collected a long time ago while searching for Jsph. Martin has always intrigued me.

1850 BUCHANAN CO MO, Bloomington Twnship, pg. 198, HH 78:

Barnes James 53 Kentucky [b. 1797. Now if this is James Barnes Jr. then it appears he did not come west w/ his family.]

Barnes James 80 Virginia [b. 1870, this fits, but, if this is our James he has remarried. I’m leaning towards this NOT being connected to our James & Sarah. What keeps catching my eye is the age, birthplace and location. Callaway Barnes in Grundy Co. in 1850 is two counties North and East of Buchanan. Carroll County, where many of the Barnes’ seem to have migrated is almost due East two counties.

Barnes Isabell 79 Virginia
Barnes Rachael 6 Missouri
Barnes Rutha 60 Kentucky [b. appears to possibly be a daughter b. 1790. I don’t think our James would have had a daughter so early.]

NOTES FOR JEMIMA BARNES AND JOSEPH MARTIN

JEMIMA BARNES (SARAH "SALLY"2 CALLAWAY, FLANDERS ISHAM1) was born September 17th, 1801 in KY, per the Martin Bible record. Jemima died April 16th, 1887 in Lowell, Benton Co., Arkansas. She married JOSEPH MARTIN July 07, 1825 in "Probably" Montgomery County, Missouri, presently Warren County, Missouri. JEMIMA BARNES was buried April 1887, Phillips Cemetery, Lowell, Benton Co., AR

Joseph Martin was born July 07, 1792 in VA, and died May 15, 1871 per the Martin Family Bible. Joseph’s resting-place is unknown.

The Martin bible was originally in the home of Gwendolyn (Martin) Brumley in 1971 per Bobbie B. Lynch. From that lead I was able to contact the daughter of Gwendolyn, Wanda L. (Brumley) Potete. I think the Bible passed from James Ridley Martin to his brother Benj. C. Martin. Mary J. (Hopkins) Martin, widow of Benjamin, was living with her son James R. Martin when she passed away. James Richard Martin then passed the Bible to Gwendolyn. The Bible was then passed down to Gwendolyn' s daughter, Wanda Louise (Brumley ) Potete, who now has the family Bible in her possession.

Wanda was kind enough to make copies for our family. John Martin happened to be traveling through Oklahoma City at the time and was gracious enough to pick up the copies. Below is a word for word transcription of that Bible. I need to eventually visit Wanda and try to get a photograph or color copy of the Bible.

Bobbie B. Lynch and I each transcribed the Bible separately and then compared notes. We both agreed that the following is a true and accurate transcription of the Martin Bible. Please understand that as with any transcription, mistakes can and do happen.

PLEASE NOTE the entry of Theodore Moeford Martin states he was born the 26th of
January, 1829. This is not possible - James Ridley Martin was born December of
1828. I believe the bible is not the original because the main entries appear to have been made
at the same time. Who ever copied the data into this bible probably copied Theodore's birth year in error and more then likely should be 1830.

Birdie Dunham and Joe Hill appear to have been made entered by two different individuals.

[end of page 3]

I believe that at one time or another, this Bible was in the possession of James Ridley & Murcena (Brown) Martin. The statement is based on the fact that this page has, for a second time in this Bible, listed the birth of James R. Martin. Listed directly below that is the birth of his wife Murcena. There is a letter, that appears in the Civil War pension files, of James R. Martin dated 3/1/1905, that also lends support to this Bible having at some point been their possession. The letter reads: March 1, 1905, Tamaha, Ind. Terr. "I W.B. Davidson, Notary Public, duly commissioned and acting hereby Testify that a very ancient looking Bible of unknown age was brought to me and I there find that - James Ridley Martin was Married to Murcena Brown on 15th April, 1849 - There are no erasures. The oldest date on said Bible is 1792. Said Bible was published by Kimber & Sharpless no 8 so. 4th St., Philadelphia and Sterotyped by E. White of New York - but no date when published. The Book is well preserved and evidently and old family heirloom givin under my hand and seal this 1st day of March 1905.
Signed - W. B. Davidson, Notary Public

Please note in the above letter, it states that there are no erasures. The letter is dated March of 1905. However, in very faint, almost undetectable handwriting, is an entry for a William Hopkins. There also appears to be a possibly/probably an entry for the birth date of William Hopkins. This appears directly underneath the entry, "Bob Ward was born in state of Okla Aug 15, 1910". As noted above, whoever entered Bob Ward’s birth, was not the same person who entered many of the other entries. However, this would not take away from the integrity of the Mr. Davidson’s letter because Bob Ward’s birth would not have been entered until after 1910.

[End of pg 4]

In the publication, "Missouri 1820", by Accelerated Indexing Systems Internation, Inc. (a copy is avail. at the Mid-Continent Library in Independence MO) there is only one Joseph Martin listed in the 1820 Census made from property records. I can not be for sure that this is our Jsph. Martin. But, he is listed in Montgomery Co. MO with many familiar names in my research and when you add the 1817 St. Charles, Mo census and the 1840 Warren Co., MO Fed. Census, I believe it's a fair assumption that this is our Joseph:
Martin, Joseph - Montgomery Co. MO - No Township listed - 1820.
The following names are listed as well:
Hopkins, William - Montgomery Co. MO - No Township Listed - 1820, (the only Hopkins listed and this is my G.G.G. Grandfather, who's granddaughter (Mary J. Hopkins) m. Benj. C. Martin s/o Jsph. Martin.) This same gentleman lived in the house of Cpt. James Callaway (Grandson of Daniel Boone) upon arriving in MO for a short time. See Wm. Hopkins notes. Williams wife, Jane (Stone) Hopkins' neice was the wife of Cpt. James Callaway.)
Flanders Callaway - Montgomery Co. MO - No Township Listed - 1820, he is the husband of Jemima Boone, daughter of Daniel Boone, and grandfather of Jemima Barnes the d/o James Barnes Jr. and Sarah Callaway.
James Barnes - Montgomery Co. MO - No Township Listed - 1820, there are also James Barnes listed in Howard Co and Chariton Co, MO.
Daniel Boone - Montgomery Co. MO - No Township Listed - 1820, this is Daniel Boone, the famous frontiersman.
Daniel M. Boon - Montgomery Co. MO - No Township Listed - 1820, this is the son of Daniel Boone.
Nathan Boone - Montgomery Co. MO - No Township Listed - 1820, also the son of Daniel Boone.
I have a list of other names in the file of Jsph. Martin.

From the Will of Flanders Callaway, which appears in the Warren Co., Land Deed records:
"I Flanders Callaway of the County of Montgomery in the State of Missouri being weak in body...Fourthly, I give to my daughter Sally Barns the wife of James Barnes and his heirs forever one hundred arpents of land to include the improvement on which her husband James Barnes now lives to be laid off in an equitable and con__?____ form by two or more commissioners to be mutually chosen by my after named executors and the said Sally and James Barns.

This is why I believe Jsph. and Jemima (Barnes) Martin are enumerated in the 1840 census in Warren Co. instead of Montgomery Co., MO. Joseph appears to have been single, living in the same area as James Barnes and the Callaway and Boone families at least from 1817, [St. Charles Co., Char. Twnhsp]. to 1820, [Montgomery Co., Char. Twnshp.] He marries Jemima in July of 1825, possibly in what is now Warren Co., MO, but at that time, would have been Montgomery Co., MO. This may also be the reason we can not find a marriage record for Jsph. & Jemima. Many/Most of the early records for Montgomery Co. was lost in two fires. Once when the courthouse burned during the Civil War, and then again, when the courthouse burned in April of 1901. The second time many of county records were lost forever. Warren Co. is then carved out of Montgomery Co. So, I believe it’s "possible" that Jsph. & Jemima never moved. Jemima's father, James Barnes Jr., was living on the land of his father-in-law, Flanders Callaway in Char. Township per Flanders Will. I have wondered, because I can not find a census extraction for Jsph. Martin in 1830, if they were living with James Barnes or someone else. It is also possible Jsph. & Jemima were simply missed in the 1830 Fed. Census or they were somewhere else.

I sent the following 1840 census extraction to Bobbie B. Lynch. She compared the census extractions with Spraker’s research and added the following comments, which appear in italics and are underlined to my notes on the census extraction:

1840 Fed Census, Warren Co., Char. twnhp. pg. 159
Milo Boone - Milo Boone is a nickname for Miles Boone. Miles and Hayden Boone are brothers (see Hadden listed below) and they were the sons of Squire and Morning (Grubbs) Boone. Miles and Hayden were Daniel Boone's nephews. Squire, who married Morning Grubbs; was the son of George Boone who was a brother to Daniel Boone.

Emeline Callaway married Hayden Boone; Emeline was a great grandaughter of Daniel Boone.

Morgan Bryan is Morgan Bryan b. 20 Aug 1794 who married Elizabeth Callaway the daughter of Flanders Isham & Jemima (Boone) Callaway. Elizabeth Callaway Bryan was b. 24 Oct 1836. This Morgan was the son of James & Mary (Powell or Power) Bryan. Morgan had 2 brothers, Willis and John; who married back into our Callaway family.

Spraker lists only two children for Morgan & Elizabeth (Callaway) Bryan and they were Melcina b. 18 Oct 1816 and Icilius Archibald Bryan b. 10 Jan 1832 who fits for one of the two males in Morgan's household and Melcena fits for the #5 slot of the females. Elizabeth Callaway Bryan d. 1 Jun 1867 in Everett, Boone Co. MO.
What we have is our Jemima (Barnes) Martin, wife of Jsph., living close to her maternal Aunt Elizabeth Bryan.

Per the 1830 census records she is listed as b. 1770-1780, we know that her parents, Jemima married Flanders abt. 1777, per the Draper manuscripts.

Morgan B. Martin, first born son of Joseph and Jemima (Barnes) Martin. Source, Martin Family Bible, "Morgan Bryan Martin was born on the 9th day of April AD 1826." There are no other entries in regards to Morgan B. Martin. We had no marriage record or death record from which to work. For a long time I searched for clues in regards to Morgan B. Martin. Finally I found the following census extraction:

Census extraction collected from the Ind. Library.

In the 1880, San Simeon, San Louis Obispo, CA census:

The following census extraction was sent to me by Debra Anderson, a cousin and fellow Murray researcher.

Note 'Achles' is underlined = indicates a question in the spelling/translation of given name. Did you have this? Also note....There is another Martin HH in this Twp. A Henry W. Martin born KY age 30 and his family. I will send this information along with the other data.

Curtis, who appears in the above 1870 Census, that Debra sent, does not appear in the 1880 Census. I did find a Curtis, that seems to be our Curtis in the 1880 Fed. Census in Salinas, San Luis Obispo County, California, page 335A:

Debra Anderson, who resides in CA, found the following information in the 1892 state census for CA. I also found him in the 1867 state census in San Louis Obispo CO. The 1892 lists:

Morgan B. Martin 66; 5ft 7in; light, blue, grey; scar on right hand; laborer; Missouri; P Robles 1, Paso Robles (wondering if he moved or if the twp changed= I need to look at a map to see. Cambria is not Paso Robles); native (US); Sept 13. [I wrote Debra and asked if the date of Sept 13th- was in reference to his birthdate. She wrote back, "...Date registered to vote (as I was told). This was the Great Register for 1892 = not really a census, though they categorize as such."] There is also a Robert L. listed age 25; 5ft 7 1/2; light; blue; none; hostler; Calif; P.Robles, P. Robles 1, Paso Robles; native Aug 30. = looks like our Robert. There are other Martins in San Luis Obispo County. It will be in the packet I send to you. Two of interest are Benjamin Franklin Martin 24 and Joseph Martin 35- both of 'Cambria'. ... If this Robert Lee is our Robert, then it looks like I found him in the CADI (CA Death Index). There is a Robert L. Martin listed as dying in San Louis Obispo CA age 58 on 10/23/25. I have pulled all Martins in the county that died bet. 1905 and 1929. Morgan is not listed, therefore (assume) he died prior to 1905 when the index began. If this is our Robert.... you can write for a death certificate from the county or state. Diana, who assists in doing research in the San Louis Obispo area wrote, "It is about 20 miles from Cambria to Paso Robles. Cambria is on the ocean and Paso is over the mountains inland. There are folks on RAOGK who do Northern SLO county. One of them may have cemetery listings for that area. Some of them [Martin's] may be buried there."

From the CA death records index I found this NEW LEAD:

JAMES RIDLEY MARTIN, second born son of Joseph and Jemima (Barnes)

Martin. Source for birth (listed twice in Bible) and marriage record per Martin Family Bible.

10. JAMES RIDLEY4 MARTIN (JEMIMA3 BARNES, SARAH "SALLY"2 CALLAWAY, FLANDERS ISHAM1) was born December 03, 1828 in Missouri, and died March 05, 1904 in Benton Co. AR. He married MURCENA BROWN April 15, 1849 in Franklin Co, Missouri. She was born August 08, 1830 in Missouri, and died Bef. 1910 in Oklahoma.

Notes for JAMES RIDLEY MARTIN:

I received June of 2000 the pension records of James Ridley Martin from the National Archives.

The following is only a brief overview focusing on the pertinent information. Not all pages are noted here.

pg.1: James R. Martin, Sgt. Co. E 26" MO. V. Inf....was last paid 4 Feb, 1904 has been dropped because of death. Died 5 March, 1904.

State of MO, County of Newton, on the 10th of Oct. 1907...Murcena Martin 76 years old, a resident of Pryor Creek, Indian Territory...she is the widow of James R. Martin...Honorably Discharged at Savanna, Georgia, fall of 1864...and in the line of duty, fall of 1863, was shot in the left side of his face during the battle at Missionary Ridge, while in battle...which caused his death 5th March, 1901, with the rank of Sergeant & First Sergeant.

Peace at Buckers School House, Franklin Co., MO, Neither were ever married before they married each other...no children under age of 16yrs at his death...getting a pension under Act. June 27th, 1890. [See notes of Elizabeth BARNES d/o James & Sarah (Callaway) Barnes who married the Rev. John Jones. I wonder if the above John Jones, who marries James & Murcena, is one and the same!!]

Refer to Pg. 2 on James pension record above. The only thing I can find close at this time is the following, "The Centennial Biographical Directory of Franklin County, Missouri" by Herman Gottleib Keil, pub. 1925, " Bucklick School District 19, Newhaven and a creek in Tp. 44. R. 3w.

Burt or Burt Schoolhouse, Boles Twp.; a voting place." Is this where James and Murcena married.

I checked the MO Union records for the 15th MO Cav. for a James R. Martin, who goes from a Private to a Corporal. He enlists as a Corp. in the above Sept. of 1861notes. Unless he had some military training or previous service he would not have enlisted and giving the rank of Corp. immediately. Which is why I checked out the James R. Martin who served in the 15th MO Cav. However, he was not a match. This James R. Martin was born in Warren Co., TN and was 19 when he enlisted. I also checked out the James R. Martin Co. D/B, 4 MO, State Militia Cav., but, he was not a fit either. He was serving 63-65 at the same time our James R. Martin was serving in Co. E.

Bicket, George W. 3 Foster Son MO MO U.S.

On one side of them is the John Smith family with no names I recognize on the other is Annie Mester family and again no one that I can identfy. Bobbie B. Lynch sent me the following message after I sent her this census extraction: No wonder Man Bequette always told me the Hopkins family was his family. I should have quizzed him much more than I did… The foster child George W. age 3 years old in 1880 household of James Ridley Martin is GEORGE WALTER BEQUETTE ---- born 10 Dec 1877 died 25 May 1964 at Lowell, AR buried Goad Springs Cemetery. Married Louisa Elizabeth "Eliza" Hopkins on 10 Nov 1895 in Benton Co. AR. Louisa the daughter of Isaac Lou and Eliza Catherine (Humble) Hopkins and a granddaughter of Thomas Hopkins. George and Louisa had 6 Bequette children. So around and around we go. The web is beginning to weave. Nice work Jim. Good to hear from you, Bobbie. [My note, Thomas Hopkins s/o Wm. Hopkins and Jane Stone. Thomas’ daughter Mary Jane m. Benj. C. Martin brother of James R. Martin.]

One more point about the above census in regards to Elizabeth in James R.'s HH. In the 1860 Fed Census there is a Brown family living in HH 955 and a M.E. age 5 b. MO, female is present. This might fit...however the father is listed as being b. in IL. That doesn't preclude a census taker error in one of the census extractions. Much more research needs to be done to figure out just who she is the d/o.

*1860 Fed. Census, Prairie Twn., Franklin Co., MO, Sept. 29, 1860, Grubville Post Office, HH 946/946:

R. Martin 30 MO Farmer 400/300 R. for Ridley? He would have been 31 in 1860

M 27 MO M. for Murcena? She would have been 29

Unreadable initials 5 MO Male child Twin Male children William B. and Archable C.?

Unreadable initials 5 MO Male child

R 5/12 MO Female - the R. matches the R. listed above in her father's name. It can't be Sarah Jane, she was born in 1861. Perhaps there is a child that we are missing that died young?

Source, Martin Family Bible, "William C. Martin was
Archibald B. Martin was born Feb 15th 1857
(The "was" in this entry is crossed out & continued with Archibald's birth)"

Interesting point, in the Civil War pension papers of Benjamin Cleveland Martin, brother of James, it states that he returned home to Grubville. Apparently this is where our Martin’s must have settled for awhile. Why can’t I find Joseph and Jemima there in 1860???

The following was collected from the MO Union Civil War Microfilm available at the Independence Mid-Continent Library:

I also think it's interesting that Jemima E. Martin d/o of Caroline and Alexander Martin, marries a Herron. And, James R. Martin musters in at Camp Herron in Pacific, MO, Franklyn Co. Jemima (Martin) Herron and her daughter Sarah Herron (who is listed in the family Bible), appear in the household of Caroline and John C. in the 1880 census. Caroline and Alexander Martin (Her first husband) were married in Franklin Co. MO.

Bobbie Byars Lynch sent me the following note Oct., 2000: "Here is the obit I promised to send you.

I feel sure it is James Ridley Martin's and somewhere along the line someone put an L in the Ridley instead of a D. Also this death date will be more accurate than Murcena' s death date she gave for James. Remember she stated he died in Mar; she was mistaken was Apr 1904. I will take an obit date any day over one by family in a later time frame."

SOURCE: Obits of Washington Co. AR Vol 3 page 88

"MARTIN, J. RILEY - (from Lowell) Since our last J. R. Martin has passed over the river of death, he had suffered much on account of old chronic troubles. His last sickness was pneumonia and he was able to bear it only a few days before the end came. Uncle Riley will be missed on account of this many virtues. The bereft family has the sympathy of the entire community. [The Springdale New 8 Apr 1904] "

"Now our Springdale News had column from the surrounding area in their newspaper, the above meant the news was from Lowell; also the editor called everyone Uncle, Grandma etc as a note of respect. I am changing my record to a deathdate of 5 April 1904 for James Ridley Martin."

I found the following deed on microfilm:

I found the following on the 26th Missouri Infantry website, at http://www.angelfire.com/mo2/26thmo/index.html

" Recollections of the 26th Missouri Infantry",

"The history of the 26th Missouri was written by Benjamin Devor Dean, the second commanding colonel of the regiment. This book was commissioned and written to be distributed at the 4th annual regimental reunion that took place in Pacific, Missouri, October 3, 1892. The index from the book is shown below with links to each section listed. Every section has been divided into the pages as numbered in the original book, with the exception of the last section, Roster of Survivors."

Below is a great account of the Battle of Missionary Ridge, and referenced is, "Tunnel Hill". The Hill that James R. Martin was injured trying to take with his unit.

BATTLE OF MISSIONARY RIDGE

"On December 25th, the Union forces made a forward movement to the foot of Missionary Ridge. Grant now had Sherman’s army above, and Hooker’s below him, and both on the same side of the river; while Thomas lay in front of Chattanooga. Missionary Ridge, tending southwest from Sherman, passed in front of Chattanooga where the center lay. The brigade, General C. L. Mathies, commanding, had to move across an open filed, and did so in quick time, for it was exposed to the fire of the enemy’s guns, but they were trained so high that they could not get the range on the rapidly moving troops.

The foot of the ridge was gained without having any killed. A few soldiers were wounded by the bursting of shells. Col. Dean received a slight wound on the shoulder by a piece of a shell which carried away on of the eagle wings of his shoulder strap.

The position of the 26th Missouri soon became very uncomfortable. The enemy were getting the range with one of their small guns, and Col. Putnam, of the 93rd Illinois asked permission of General Mathies to go to the top of the hill and silence it, which request was granted, and he moved forward, the 26th Missouri following close behind. Just as the 93rd Illinois was nearing the top of the ridge, the enemy made a charge upon them with superior numbers,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Page 18

and would have driven them back, but the 26th Missouri rushed to their support, and the two regiments drove them back and held the position, keeping the battery silenced for about an hour and a half without any support near.

Colonel Putnam, of the 93rd Illinois was killed and brigade commander, General Mathies wounded, the command devolved on Colonel Dean. The ammunition was nearly exhausted, and Colonel Dean contemplated moving the two regiments back to the foot of the ridge, but to do so he saw that a loss would follow. The enemy’s battery was captured, but to let go was not easy. Enough sharpshooters would have to be left to keep the gun silenced for the enemy could open a destructive fire upon the troops if they retired, and would be very apt to capture the sharpshooters if they were not supported.

While thus meditating on the situation, it was discovered that a heavy force of the enemy was upon the right flank and a little to the rear of Colonel Dean’s command, in fact it was nearly surrounded. Hence, the order was given to fall back on the double quick to the foot of the ridge. Fortunately, the enemy was partially between Colonel Dean’s force and their own battery which was under control of the Union soldiers, so the Confederates were only able to fire one round at the boys in blue. The enemy, however, made flank movement by rushing through the railroad tunnel and captured about one-half of the 5th Iowa. The battle ended, the enemy retreated, and the 26th Missouri with others troops followed in pursuit.

Captain E. H. Stoddard, of Co. B, and Lieutenant H. P. Harding, of Co. D., 26th Missouri Infantry, were killed in the battle of Missionary Ridge, and Lieutenant A. W.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fritchey, Co. A, 26th Missouri Infantry, was close under the rebels guns with a squad of men, and being unable to retreat was captured by the enemy.

Mr. J. T. Headly, in his History of the Civil War, thus describes the battles of Missionary Ridge and Chattanooga:

"Bragg was amazed at this sudden apparition of a powerful army on his extreme right, and immediately made preparations to dislodge Sherman. In the meantime, Hooker, from below, moved against Lookout Mountain, and by dark carried the nose of it, and at once opened direct communications with Chattanooga. His advance up the steep sides of the mountain had been made with great celerity and skill. A thick fog for awhile concealed him, but as it lifted before the sun, the cliffs above were seen crowded with the enemy, while cannon sent a plunging fire from the heights. Grant, far down in the mist-shrouded valley below, could hear the thunder of guns and crash of musketry high up in the clouds above, as though the gods were warring there. Says an eye witness: ‘At this juncture the scene became one of most exciting interest. The thick fog, which had heretofore rested in dense folds upon the sides of the mountain, concealing the combatants from view, suddenly listed to the summit of the lofty ridge, revealing to the anxious gaze of thousands in the valleys and on the plains below, a scene such as is witnessed by once in a century. General Geary’s columns, flushed with victory, grappled with the foe upon the rocky ledges, and drove him back with slaughter from his works. While the result was uncertain, the attention was breathless and painful; but when victory perched upon our standards, shout upon shout rent the air. The whole army,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Page 20

with one accord, broke out into joyous acclamations. The enthusiasm of the scene beggars description. Men were frantic with joy, and even General Thomas himself, who seldom exhibits his emotions, said involuntarily, ‘I did not think it possible for men to accomplish so much.’ The day before, Thomas had made a strong reconnaissance in force, in his front, and with but slight loss, had occupied Orchard Knob, and developed the lines of the enemy. Everything was therefore now ready for the grand assault upon the rebel position. Bragg had thought that Chattanooga was his beyond a doubt; but suddenly to the right, in front and left of him, he saw himself confronted by three armies. Still he believed Missionary Ridge to be impregnable, and that no force could climb its steep and rugged sides in the face of his powerful batteries.

"Sherman, from his position, could glance across to Tunnel Hill, on which the rebel batteries were placed; and he looked grave, but determined, at the fearful task that had been assigned his brave troops. Before the great, decisive day (the 25th) had fairly dawned, he was in the saddle, and by the dim light that streaked the cloudy east betokening a stormy day, rode along his entire line. A deep valley lay between him and the steep hill beyond, which was partly covered with trees to the narrow, wooded top, across which was a breastwork of logs and earth, dark with men. Two guns enfiladed the narrow way that led to it. Further back arose a still higher hill, lined with guns that could pour a plunging fire on the first hill if it should be taken. The depth and character of the gorge between, could not be ascertained. Just as the rising sun was tinged with red the murky rain-clouds, the bugles sounded ‘Forward’ and

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Page 21

Corse, leading the advance, briskly descended the hill, crossed the valley under a heavy fire, began to ascend the opposite heights, and soon gained a foothold; but the spot where he stood was swept by the enemy’s artillery."

In the very back of this book it list our James R. Martins residency under Roster of Survivors, July 1891 as, James R. Martin, Richwoods, MO. We know that James R. Martin's son, Archable had a daughter b. in the Spring of 1893. So we have James R. Martin's move to AR linked to about an 18-month period.

JAMES RIDLEY MARTIN is buried in Phillips Cemetery, Lowell, Benton Co., AR, but, there is no marker for his wife or any of his children. I lose Murcena in Oklahoma.

MURCENA BROWN:

"Vol. 4, Washington Co. Ark Obits", pg. 68: Mercena Martin (From Lowell) 12 March 1909, Springdale News We were sorry to learn of the death of Aunt Mercena Martin at some point in Oklahoma. This lady once resided in Lowell and had many friends here who will regret to learn of her departure.

I contacted Joan at the Pryor Creek Library. She told me they did have a fairly good enumeration of cemeteries in and around Pryor, OK. She called me back to let me know she could not find a Murcena Martin or Brown.

Children of JAMES MARTIN and MURCENA BROWN are:

According to the 1900 Census, Walter's wife would have to be Phobe, so her Gladys would have to first or middle name. Ridley is listed as James R. in the 1900 census. So we now know he was def. named for his grandfather.

I wonder what happened to the land that James and Murcena purchased for their son. In the Bible Archie is listed as Archabald C. and William, listed above him in the Bible, was listed as William B. I wonder if the C. is for Callaway and the B. is for Boone - wouldn't that be neat. Hope we kind find out more about Archabald and the rest of his children. Note the census record incorrectly states Archabald’s birthplace as AR – it should have been MO.

Did Luvisa Ann (Martin) Brown come to AR with Thomas Hopkins or her brother B. C. Martin. Could her parents Jsph. & Jemima Martin have traveled with B.C., Luvisa and Caroline (Martin) Hopkins to Benton Co., AR. Or, did Jemima come after her husband died? Did she meet John Lewis when he was passing through MO? Since they were married in AR I believe she meet him afterwards. There are several connections between the Hopkins and the Browns noted in their files. And, we know that Thomas Hopkins lived in Franklin Co. for a short time. Also, as I noted before, Thomas's daughter Mary Jane married Luvisa Ann's brother Benj. C. Martin. Benj. C. Martin's son Franklyn married Mary P. Lewis d/o Wm. H. & Charity Graham (Lewis). Also, who is Frankyn Hopkins the son of? He married Margaret Lewis d/o Wade Hampton and is sister to my Wm. This is going to be something to untangle.

John Lewis Decd.

On this day, Court approved the Bond of B. Newkirk as admn. Of Estate of John Lewis Decd. Which was in [sum?] of 3600$= with Paul F. Lewis, Wade H. Lewis, John M. Lewis and Levi Phillips as his securities.

A couple of points here about the above probate of John Lewis who married our Luvisa Ann (Martin) Brown. We have always felt Paul Felix Lewis was the possible son of John Lewis and a previous marriage. The above probate seems to point to that fact. I still believe Wade H. Lewis is John's brother. The John M. Lewis listed above has to be Wade's son. John M. Lewis is living right next door to Paul in the 1880 census. Paul lists his birthplace as MO and that of his parents as NC and TN. John Lewis, noted in the above probate was b. in NC.

Another interesting fact that ties John and Wade is that Wade lists his birthplace as NC, too. They both have sons 16 yrs of age, in the 1880 census who were born in MO. John most have preceded him there, as he has children born in MO that are younger. Wade's wife, Nancy (Grant) Lewis, was born in AL, her parents were born in TN per the 1880 census.

There are so many ties between these families. Benjamin Martin's sister marries John Lewis, his son, Frank, marries Mary P. Lewis. Mary is the daughter of Wm. Henry Lewis the son of Wade H. Lewis. Paul F. Lewis provides an affidavit for Benj. C. Martin's Civil War pension papers. John Lewis is buried in Phillips cemetery, the same as Benj. C., James R., Mary Jane (Hopkins) and Jemima (Barnes) Martin. Also note that a Levi Phillips is named in the above probate. I wonder if he connects to Ben Phillips for whom the cemetery is named. Bobbie wondered if the John Lewis buried there was Luvisa's husband. With the above probate we now have evidence that matches Bobbie's suspicion.

I believe the following Susan Lewis, will prove to be a daughter or daughter-in-law of John. More research is needed here. Source, Books B & C, Land Index, Grantor to Grantee, Benton Co., AR:

This needs additional research, There is a Ben Newkirk, in Benton Co., AR, who left a Will dated 1899. The Will appears in Will Book B, pg. 539. I believe this same Ben Newkirk will prove to be the B. Newkirk who was named exec. For John Lewis. I would like to find his connection to the Lewis family. Could he have married a Lewis daughter? We need to search for a marriage record in Benton Co., AR for this Ben Newkirk. I would also like to have a census extraction for him in 1880 or 1870 in Benton Co., AR. This might provide us with some clues.

Notes for WILLIAM BROWN, FIRST HUSBAND OF LUVISA BROWN:

Sent to me by Greg Wall, who hosts a site on the 26th MO Vol. Inf., Co. E. Greg wrote, "Here is the following information on William Brown who died while serving in company E. William Brown; private; company E; age 36, height 5' 8"; black hair; blue eyes; dark complexion; married; farmer; born Lincoln county, Missouri; residing at Grubville, Franklin county, Missouri at time of enlistment; enlisted on Sep. 23, 1861; Mustered Dec. 20, 1861 at Pacific, Missouri, by Captain Harper; Died of disease at Jackson, Tenn. Oct. 11, 1862."

I have some additional information from the Mid-Cont. Lib., In Independence that I collected some time ago. I believe this will prove to be the husband of Luvisa Ann Martin. This Wm. Brown lists his residency and enlists the same day in the same outfit as James Ridley Martin, Luvisa's brother.

CAROLINE ELANORE MARTIN married (1) ALEXANDER MARTIN March 30, 1857 in Franklin Co, Missouri. He was born December 06, 1830 in Missouri, and died Bef. September 26, 1867 in Possibly Missouri. She married (2) JOHN C. HOPKINS September 26, 1860 in Franklin Co, Missouri, son of JOHN HOPKINS and SARAH CAPPS. He was born March 22, 1846 in Ozark Co., MO, and died January 07, 1909 in Tamaha, Haskell Co., OK.

Notes for CAROLINE ELANORE MARTIN:

*I have a copy of the marriage Record in my possession from the Franklin County Recorder of Deeds. The marriage is recorded as follows: Missouri, Franklin - I Isiah (Moore?) a Justice of the Peace of the township (next line cut off), in the County of Franklin (aforesaid?) certify that I joined in (again, next line cut off at the seam of the page) John C. Hopkins and Caroline E. Martin on the 26th (can not read the month to faded) of 1867. Recorded 1867

*1880 Benton Co. AR, Big Springs Twp. #309:

John C. Hopkins 34 b. MO MO MO (John C. is son of John C. Hopkins and Eliza Capps).

Carolynn E. 39, MO VA VA (Both of her brothers have their parents listed VA KY - probably a mistake by the census taker or the person providing the information)

Jamer R. 11 MO MO MO, [James Ridley Hopkins, named for her brother, 2nd born son of Joseph]

Mary F. 9, MO MO MO,

William N. 7, &, MO MO MO, [Appears to be named for her brother as well. See Martin Bible.]

Sarah Herron, 5, MO MO MO. (Daughter of Jemima E. (Martin) Herron.

Jamima Martin 78, VA - - (Mother-in-law) I would imagine the information was giving by her husband, because in almost every case, the children of Jemima list her birthplace as KY and their fathers as VA.

The following is information was sent to me by Bobbie B. Lynch, about the cemetery where Carolyn (Martin) and John C. Hopkins are buried.

"TAMAHA CEMETERY IS LOCATED IN TAMAHA, HASKELL CO.,OK which is located in northern Haskell county; 13 miles northeast of Stigler,OK. There are approximately 435 marked graves in this cemetery. Records compiled in August of 1969 by Peggy Ann Tipps of Moore,OK and Peggy Sue McCoy of Tulsa,OK. I sent off for the cemetery listings about a month ago. I will only give the data of those buried in this cemetery that are of our Hopkins and Martin families and perhaps others who I think could be.

Following listed in a row:

C. E. Hopkins 8 Sep 1837 - 15 Jan 1899

(Carolyn Eleanor (Martin) Martin Hopkins)

J. C. Hopkins 22 Mar 1846 - 7 Oct 1909

(John C. Hopkins 2nd husband of Carolyn Eleanor Martin)

Jane F. Hopkins 5 Nov 1929 age about 83 years

This person does not seem to fit - I wonder if they have her data listed

correctly. If she died in 1929 this would make her born appox. 1846 -

perhaps she is a sister-in-law to John C. Hopkins - NEEDS RESEARCH

We need 1900 & 1910 census of Haskell County,OK.

George Hopkins 10 Feb 1929 age 35 (born 1894)

son of James & Laura Hopkins was born 1891 according to 1900 census -

I believe one of the dates is incorrect and this is their son.

Lee Ward 19 Jun 1905 - 22 Sep 1950

Larrs Williamson 29 Mar 1866 - 28 Oct 1897

1st husband of Amanda A. Hopkins

See our bible record - remember Stella WIlliamson who married Joe Hill -

Larrs and Amanda are her parents.

Charley Martin 3 May 1899 - 16 Jan 1956

I believe this is Charles the son of James and Laura Hopkins;

he is shown as born in Mar 1897 in 1900 census. MORE RESEARCH IS NEEDED HERE."

Hopkins buried Tamaha Cem in Tamaha, Haskell, OK Whitefield, Haskell county, OK is a few miles south west of Tamaha, Haskell CO. OK. I wonder if some of these Hopkins were buried in a Whitefield cemetery. Be interesting to see the marriage records of this county. Need to prove which gender Cecil Hopkins was - male or female."

Notes for LAURA FITZGERALD:

The following information was sent to me by Bobbie Byars Lynch who has researched the Fitzgerald line:

Notes for BENJAMIN CLEVELAND MARTIN:

Received June of 2000 the pension records of Benjamin Cleveland Martin from the National Archives. The following is only a brief overview focusing on the pertinent information. Not all of the pages are noted here. They are listed in the order they were received; not necessarily in date order – so, the numbering of pages is irrelevant.

pg. 1: Mary J. Martin, Gravette Ark, Drop Report, Jan. 24, 1928....pensioner has this day been dropped from the roll because of death, Dec. 21, 1927.

pg. 2: Benjamin C. Martin, notice of Pensioner Dropped, May 23, 1919...dropped from roll because of death Apr. 12, 1919.

That his several places of residence since leaving the service have been as follows: Franklin Co., MO until 1869 in Benton County, Arkansas since. Post office address is Lowell, Benton Co. Signed Benjamin C. Martin Signed witnesses W. H. Harvey, [my note, this is "Coin" Harvey who ran for president.] residing in Monte Ne, Ark, having known claimant for a period of 10 years and Albert Graham residing in Monte Ne, Ark, having known claimant for a period of 25 years. (Albert Graham is the son of "Sebe Ellis" Graham and the first cousin Mary P. (Lewis) Martin wife of Frank Martin son of B. C. Martin.)

pg. 4: Declaration For an Original Invalid Pension. (This particular document is dated 16th day of Dec. 1864, from the Bloomington, Benton Co., AR. The document details his troubles upon contracting "...the bloody flux of Camp Diarrhea" after having enlisted. He apparently was in and out of the hospital several times and mentions by name his military physician as Dr. Bartlett. The document also names his Regiment's commanding officer as Capt. Stuart Corkener. I am a bit unsure of the spelling of his last name. Because of this document we can tell where he was during the Civil War, noted below.

"B.C. was treated the first of Sept. 1863 in Helena AR for about 4 weeks." "...at Regimental Hospital at Helena Ark., Sept 1, 1863."

"...Was next attacked severely on or about April the first of 1864 while on the Red River March....was put on a steam boat...relieved from duty some four weeks."

"The next attack was had about December 1st, 1864, at Nashville, Tennessee, was sent to the Convalescent Camp - remained there some five weeks."

"...next severe attack was at Selma, Alabama, on or about the last of May, 1865, just after the surrender...treated for some three weeks...have been troubled off and on ever since

pg. 5: Another Document that shows that B. C. Martin appeared before John Black, Clerk of Benton Co. Court. Ark., in regards to filing his claim for Invalid Pension, as was required, Dec. 16th, 1884. Witnesses - B. F. Dunn and C. C. Huffman

pg. 6 & 7: The Department of the Interior sent B. C. Martin two questioniers and with many of the same questions as the first. That is why I have combined both pages here. Information from these two pages are as follows.

Presently Married to Mary J. Martin, maiden name Hopkins.

They were married 1862, Richwoods, MO by Jas. (?) J. P.

Record of Marriage...in Family Bible. [Obviously this is a different Bible then the Martin Family Bible we have listed. As, no marriage is listed for Benj. and Mary.]

Neither B. C. or Mary J. were previously married.

Date of first reply for above information was April 2nd, 1915. signed Benjamin C. Martin

Date and place of birth for B. C. Martin, April 12th, 1842, near Richwoods, MO.

Served Co. G, 33 rd, MO Inft.

Post office at enlistment was Grubbville, MO. [Note that James Ridley Martin is enumerated in Franklin Co., MO and the post office was listed as Grubbville. Yet, I can find NO Benj. C. Martin, B. C. Martin or even a B. Martin in a census in Franklin County. This makes me wonder if Joseph and Jemima might be in the same general location as well and be missing. It has been expressed to me that Franklin County is a difficult census to search.]

The second time he was asked by whom he was married he only answered - Martin.

Record of marriage, "only a pictorial record in house."

Date of second reply was April 2nd, 1915. Signed Benjamin C. Martin [Note, not one child is named Joseph. I can not find one child named Joseph amongst any of Jsph. and Jemima’s children, why?!]

pg. 8: I consider this one of the most interesting documents I received in that it gives me the actual whereabouts of B. C. Martin and family for a long period of time. Franklin Co., MO records are going to need to be checked completely again. The Document reads - General Affidavit for Any Purpose. State of Texas, county of Lamar, Personally appeared Isaac L. Hopkins of Maxey? Declares as follows: " I have known Benjamin C. Martin all of my life which includes the last thirty years." (Isaac goes on to explain that Benj. was healthy before leaving the war and returned ill.) "Said soldier came home as above said to Grubville, Franklin Co., MO in the fall of 1865. Until about March 1869, at which time I left for Benton County, Arkansas. During this period we worked together about two three years and I boarded with him most of this time. Dr. Isaac (W?) Barber of Richwood, Washington County, Missouri who was the claimants family physician told me that Benj. C. Martin, the claimant was disabled from performing manual labor, one half of an able bodied man. That I next saw the soldier or claimant on or about January 1870 at Bloomington (now Lowell) in Benton County, Arkansas at which place we lived as neighbors from the said first day of January 1870 to the fall of 1885, at which time I left for Tex where I now reside. I worked with and for soldier in Arkansas nearly two years of my time. I know that the soldier was more afflicted when I last saw him, then when first.

Signed. I. L. Hopkins 11th of Sept. 1888

I looked into what I could find out about Grubville, Franklin Co., MO. The following from "The Centennial Biographical Directory of Franklin County, Missouri" by Herman Gottleib Keil, pub. 1925. "Postoffices:

37. Grubville was established in Jefferson County October 28, 1853 and Edmund Franlin Frost was the first Postmaster till March 16, 1857 when George B. Green became postmaster and the office was moved to Franklin County and located in Section 23, Township 41 Range 2 East and remained there over 30 years. David A. Perkins was appointed postmaster Novemeber 21, 1887 and he removed the office back to Jefferson County as soon as he received his commission. This is one of four offices removed from Franklin County and the only one of them now existing under its original name which is based on the word grub applied to the condition of the land there at that time, by Christopher Frost, a brother of the first postmaster. The discontinuance of this office indicated on the map, applies to its location in Franklin County."

*The following notes in this paragraph were giving in to me by Bobbie L. (Byars) Lynch, her orig. family sheet for B.C. Martin and Mary Jane (Hopkins) are in the B.C. Martin File: Benjamin C. Martin lived right in the town of Lowell. His granddaughter, Pearl; said "the city pump was almost in their yard." Served in the Civil War Co. G. 33 Mo. Inf. Bible has recorded that he had coal black hair when he died at 6 A. M. on the 12th, which was his birthday, Tombstone has the 11th. This Bible record was that of his granddaughter Nora (Hunt) O'Dell. Granny Lynch (Pearl) Hunt said that her grandmother Martin lived at the head of the big springs at Monte Ne, AR. and then moved to Lowell later. She said her Uncle Nick Martin lived at Monte Ne when he died (Note: Monte Ne is south east of Rogers, AR.)

*Obit. for Benj. C. Martin (Rogers Democrat April 17, 1919) B. C. Martin died at his home at Lowell Saturday, April 12 at the age of 77 years. He was born April 12, 1842; died on his 77th birthday. He was married to Miss Mary J. Hopkins August 7, 1862 in Franklin Co., MO. He came to Benton Co., Ark in 1870 and has lived in and around Lowell the past 49 years and was one of the best known men in that neighborhood and was called Uncle Ben by his friends and neighbors. All who knew him was his friend. He was of pleasing disposition and always had a kind word for all he met. He had been a Notary in this county over 40 years. He leaves to mourn his departure from this life his aged wife, J. M. Martin and Mrs. John Robinson of Tahlequah, Okla., Mrs. Chas Hunt of Springdale, Ark., Nick Martin of Rogers, J. R. Martin of Gravette and Mrs. Henry Leak of Christie, Okla. The Democrat extends its sympathy to the bereaved family.

*(Benton County Record April 18th 1919) Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Martin were called to the bedside of Mr. Martin's father at Lowell last Sunday. They returned Wednesday advising the death of their father on Monday.

*(Springdale News April 18, 1919) Martin: On April 12, 1919, B. C. Martin was called home by the angel of Death at 6 a. m. Uncle Ben, as he was known, scattered sunshine and happiness to all who came in contact with him. He lived such a beautiful life. His death in the community was such a sad blow to all, but God in his own wish plucked this sweet flower. He always gets glory out of such a beautiful life as he lived. He has spent most of his life in and around Lowell. He came to Lowell in 1871. (*This has to be a mistake because he is listed among the citizens requesting a township be granted for that area in 1870.) B. C. Martin was born April 12, 1842 and died April 12, 1919. He was united in marriage to M. J. Hopkins in 1862, to this union were born seven children, four daughters and three sons. All of whom are living but one, who will meet her father on the other side. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, Mrs. B. C. Martin, Mrs. C. H. Hunt, of Springdale, Mrs. John Robinson of Tahlequah Okla., Mrs. Henry Leak, Christie, Okla;, J. W. Martin, of Tahlequah, Okla., Frank Martin, Rogers and Jim Martin, Gravett. They were all present at the bedside excepting one, J. W. Martin. In the language of the poet we want to say, "Sad Heart, cease repining, behind the cloud the sun's still shining." I want to say to the wife, daughters and sons and loved ones, look up in the heaven to the same God and Savior that your husband and father trusted in and remember that by and by the same Guardian Angel which came and plucked the sweet spirit of Uncle Ben will in like manner conduct you to the same heavenly home if you will live as Uncle Ben lived. So sad friends do not look down in the grave for that dear sweet spirit that God has taken but look up where it is said "In my Father's house are many mansions." May God bless this sorrowing family.

Source Joe R. Martin, sent to me by Larry Martin, Joe’s son, "On 13 September 2003, I asked him (Joe Martin) who had told him that he descended from Daniel Boone. He said that his grandmother had been the one to tell him. His grandmother was Mary Jane Hopkins wife of Benjamin Cleveland Martin. She died 21 December 1927 when dad was 13 years old. Had his grandfather, B. C. Martin, told him that he was a Boone descendant, it is unlikely that he would have remembered as B.C. Martin died 12 April 1919 when dad was only four years of age.

Mary was the d/o Thomas & Lydia (Beck) Hopkins.

*The marriage of Thomas Hopkins is noted in the "Lincoln County, Missouri History", by Goodspeed Publishing Co., 1888. Under the following: marriages recorded for 1826 are: ....Thomas Hopkins and Lydia Beck, October 22, by Rev. Eli Hubbard....

*I have in my possession a copy of Thomas and Lydia's marriage record. It reads exactly as follows:

Lincoln County MO ~ I do hereby certify that Thomas Hopkins and Lydia Beck was married to each other October 22nd 1826 David Hubbard

Recorded this 1st Day of November AD 1826

F. Parker Recorder

Pg. 478 - this about Eli Hubbard: "He was a pioneer minister in Lincoln Co., Missouri. He was born in 1796, in the state of Kentucky, near where Daniel Boone first Settled. His Father was Charles Hubbard, a native of Virginia, who spent a few years in Kentucky before coming to St. Louis MO in 1809. At the age of 23 he professed Conversion and was baptized by Elder Charles Collard, while a resident of Gasconade County. He moved to Warren County about 1821/22 and commenced preaching and was ordained by Little Bethel Church in 1824. Later he moved to Lincoln, and settled about ten or twelve miles west of Troy. [My note: Joesph Martin and Jamima Barnes were married July 7th, 1825, probably in present day Warren Co., MO. In 1826 David Hubbard married Thomas Hopkins and Lydia Beck. Is it possible that the records of the Little Bethel Church could hold a clue to the marriage of Joseph and Jemima, if they exist??] In 1829 he moved to New Hope, where he lived for 10 or 12 years. Again he moved, to Pike Co. IL. where he lived until he moved to OR in about 1853. He pastored in Lincoln County at the following churches, Sulphur Lick, Bryants Creek and Union (New Hope). He died at his home in Oregon, June 14, 1868." (*Although I did not copy this word for word it captures almost all pertinent info.)

Jeremiah Beck’s wife was Susannah GIBSON. Susannah is believed to have been the daughter of Joseph GIPSON/GIBSON. There were several Gibson’s that rode with CALLOWAY’S Rangers. Amazing how all these families tie into each other. In regards to Susannah being a GIPSON/GIBSON: Following notes for Sarah from Bio of Aaron T. Beck*Portrait and Biographical Record of ST. Charles, Lincoln and Warren Co.MO Chapman Pub. Co. 1895. I have the complete Bio of Aaron T. Beck in my files.

* "Jeremiah and Sarah (Gipson) Beck. natives of North and South Carolina respectively."

*"The father (Jeremiah Beck) of our subject worked in the above place (St. Charles MO) for some time after his arrival there, when he moved with his family to Big Creek, where his wife's (Sarah) father, Joseph Gipson, was living. That gentleman had come to Missouri 3 years before and had settled on what is now known as the McCulloch place. I have additional documentation on these lines if someone would like.

Thomas Hopkins was the son of WM. HOPKINS and JANE STONE. WM. HOPKINS came to MO early and stayed with JAMES CALLAWAY for a period of time. From "Pioneer Families Of Missouri" by Rose and Bryan, copy available in the Mid-Cont. Lib. in Independence. "Hopkins - William Hopkins, of South Carolina, removed to Kentucky, where he married Jane Stone, and in 1810 he came to Missouri, and lived for some time in Captain James Callaway's house. In the spring of 1819 he settled in (now) Warren County. His children were - Cynthia, Isaac, Walker, Polly, Sally, Thomas, Jane, Matilda, Lucy, Anna, Benjamin, John, and Susan. Isaac married Elizabeth Brown. Walker married Nancy Gibson, by whom he had twenty children. He was married a second time to Jane Beck, a daughter of one of the first settlers of Warren County. Thomas married Lydia Beck. Jane married Joseph Hatfield. Matilda married James Stark. Lucy married John Zumwalt. John married Sally Cops. Susan married John Corker. Anna and Benjamin died of measles.

There is one other interesting tie, which needs to be noted here. Isaac Kent, husband of Lucy (Hopkins) Kent, Lucy being the brother of Wm. Hopkins, was noted as one of the appraisers in the estate of James Callaway. Source, Family History Library film number #0967510, Missouri Archives #5926, "Application & Appointment for Letters of Administration & Executors 1805 - 1815": "James Callaway deceased, administrators John B. Callaway and Newton Howell. Thomas Stephenson, Isaac Kent, James Baldridge appointed appraisers. 3 April 1815, page 61."

Margy, you had asked me about Susannah STONE wife of Francis HOWELL and Jane STONE the wife of Wm. HOPKINS. You had wondered if perhaps they surname was STONER. That may still be possible, but, here is what I have. "Pioneer Families of Missouri", by Wm. Bryan & Robert Rose, pub. by Bryan, Brand & Co., St. Louis, MO., 1876, pgs 154-156: Subject – Howell. "John Howell was born in Pennsylvania, but moved to North Carolina, where he had three sons - John, Thomas, and Francis. John moved to Tennessee, where he died, leaving a widow and four children. Thomas lived in South Carolina until after the revolutionary war. He married a Miss. Bearfield. Francis married Susan Stone, daughter of Benjamin Stone, of South Carolina (sic. North Carolina), and emigrated to what is now the State of Missouri in 1797. He first settled thirty miles west of St. Louis, in (now) St. Louis county, where he lived three years, and then removed to (now) St. Charles county, and settled on what has since been known as Howell's Prairie… They had ten children - John, Thomas, Sarah, Newton, Francis, Jr., Benjamin, Susan L., Lewis, James F., and Nancy. John was married three times, and died in his 87th year, leaving nine children. He was a ranger in Capt. James Callaway's company. Thomas married Susannah Callaway, sister of Capt. Callaway, in whose company he also served as a ranger. They had fourteen children, and he died in his 85th year, but his widow survives, in her 87th year. (See "Anecdotes and Adventures.") Newton married the widow Rachel Long. They had ten children, and he died in his 74th year. Francis, Jr., married the widow Polly Ramsey, who was the daughter of James and Martha Meek. He died in his 82d year, and his widow is still living, in her 87th year. They had no children. Mr. Howell served as a ranger two years, part of the time in Capt. Callaway's company, and was Colonel of militia for five years. Benjamin married Mahala Castlio, and they had twelve children. He died in his 63rd year. He was Captain of a company of rangers for two years. Susan married Larkin S. Callaway, son of Flanders Callaway, and died at the age of 33 years. She had seven children. James F. married Isabella Morris, and died in his 33d year. Nancy was married twice, first to Capt. James Callaway, and after his death she married John H. Castlio. Lewis received a classical education, and followed the profession of a teacher for many years... (a short biography of Lewis, which he had written, is included.) [Complete bio in my files.]

What is nice about the above bio is that explaines why WM. HOPKINS was living in the household of Capt. James CALLAWAY upon arriving in MO. Jane STONE was NANCY HOWELL’S aunt!!

This is from the "HIstory of St. Charles County" pg. 286 (I have not included the full text because of repitition. Instead, I have included those parts that shed additional light on our subjects.)

Francis Howell, the youngest of the three sons, married Miss. Susan Stone a daughter of Benjamin Stone...

...Newton married the widow of Raphael Long (so, is her name Rachel and her first husbands name Raphael?)

...Francis..served two years as a Ranger, partly in Capt. Callaway's company and partly with Capt. Nathan Boone.

...James S. (the other bio states James F.)

...Lewis married Miss. Serena Lamme, of this county, a great-greatgandaughter of Daniel Boone, and three of their six children are living.

Margy, one more quick note in regards to the STONE surname, here is Benjamin STONE’S will:

Benjamin's names his wife and children in his will: August 4th, 1795, Madison County, Kentucky, Book A, page 196:

In the name of God Amen. I Benjamin Stone of the county of Madison in the state of Kentucky being weak of body but of sound and perfect mind and memory thanks be to Almighty God for His mercies, and calling to mind the mortality of man's body and that its appointed for all flesh to die, do make constitute and ordain this my last will and testament in the following manner:

Vez, first of all I order that all my just debts shall be honestly paid and as to the rest of my estate I will and bequeath in the following manner:

Poven 4 August, 1795

Benjamin Stone appears in the 1788 tax list in Madison Co., KY Benjamin Stone, Burgess Stone, Valentine Stone… [Margy, remember when I was wondering if there was some connection between all of these families and Wa. Co., TN and then a westward movement through KY and TN (Campbell Co.)? I need to follow up on this because I believe I remember a Volentine/Valentine Stone listed on deeds in Wa. Co., TN, as well as the surnames KING, MURRAY, MARTIN, CAMPBELL, DEPEW (Isaac Depew who settled in Wa./Sullivan Co., TN, fought at the Battle of Gulliford Courthouse, my G.G.G.G. Grandfather), HOPKINS, GIBSON’S ETC.

Ok, one more thing in regards to all these families being so intermingled. Lucy (Hopkins) Kent's husband is noted in "Pioneer Families of Missouri", by Wm. Bryan & Robert Rose, pub. by Bryan, Brand & Co., St. Louis, MO., 1876. pgs 219: Subject - Kentz:

Isaac Kent, of Kentucky, lost his parents when he was quite young, and was "bound out" to be raised. When he was of age he married Lucy Hopkins, and they had - John, William, Jane, Andrew, Robert, Elizabeth, Polly, Thomas, Issac, Dozier, Louisa, and Lucinda. Mr. Kent came to Missouri and settled in Warren county in 1819. His son John married Catharine Zumwalt. William married Mary A. Zumwalt, and was killed by Waller Graves, who was insane, at the house of Newton Howell, on the 2d of October, 1830. Andrew Kent enlisted as a soldier in the Mexican war, and was burned to death in one of the forts captured by the Americans. Robert, Elizabeth, Issac, Polly, and Thomas all moved to Oregon. John Kent was a ranger in Callaway's company.

I have additional notes on all of these families, let me know what you need and I will send them your way!!!!!!!

Ok, before we get too far of the MARTIN BARNES FAMILY tract, here are the children of BENJAMIN MARTIN and MARY HOPKINS:

FRANK "PAUL" MARTIN, b. November 18, 1867, "Possibly Kirkwood" Missouri; d. November 23, 1949, Rogers, Benton Co., Arkansas; m. MARY PARILEE LEWIS, April 07, 1891, Arkansas; b.

Front of the book states "Consitution, by-laws and rules of order of Monte Ne Lodge, Number 487, Located in Monte Ne, Arkansas."

I recieved this note from Bobbie Byars Lynch after I sent her the above census extraction: Jim, I forgot to tell you that I was into my old family sheets and I had that John W. Martin had married a girl named Anna. Must have been info I got from Granny Lynch in the very beginning; so I'd say that proves that the John W. Martin in 1910 household # 168/169 in Tahlequah, OK is ours.

I did not have any children listed for them. I need to find my tape that I made of Granny telling me lots of things. John of course would be Granny's uncle.

JULIA ANN MARTIN, b. September 25, 1865, Howell Co. MO; d. August 19, 1951, Springdale, Washington Co., MO; m. CHARLES FRANKLIN HENRY HUNT, November 18, 1887, Lowell, Benton Co., AR; b. 1865, Crab Orchard, Lincoln Co., Kentucky; d. 1945.

Notes for JULIA ANN MARTIN:

*Obit giving to me by Virginia Martin: Deaths Mrs. Charlie Hunt. Fayetteville Ark. - (Special) - Mrs. Julia Ann Hunt, resident of 524 Carter street, Springdale, and wife of the late Charlie Hunt, died at her home Sunday after an illness of several weeks. Mrs. Hunt was born in West Plaines, Mo, Sept. 25, 1865, the daughter of Benjamin and Mary Martin. She had been a resident of Springdale for the last 49 years., moving there from Brentwood in 1902. She was member of the Free Will Baptist Church. Surviving are four sons, James, Oliver, Bill and Charlie, all of Springdale; four daughters, Mrs. Edna Leake, Mrs. Cora Stone, Mrs. Nora O'Dell and Mrs. Pearl Lynch, all of Springdale; a brother, Jim Martin of Siloam Springs; a sister, Mrs. Sarah Robinson, Tahlequah, Okla., 22 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren. Funeral services will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Church of Christ in Springdale. Service will conducted by Mr. L. Neal. Burial will be at Friendship cemetery under direction of Nelson's funeral home.

*This information (the following three paragraphs) was in the notes of Benj. C. Martin, sent to me by Bobbie L. (Byars) Lynch: Julia Ann's birth certificate states she was born in Howell Co. MO. Buried Springdale, Washington Co., MO, Friendship Cem.

Julia Ann (Martin) Hunt's census of 1880 stated she was born 1867 tomestone has 1965. She always said she was from Coal Hill but her brother's obit has states that he was born in Kirkwood, MO. It is known that Julia Ann was born in Howell Co., MO

Julia (I call her Granny Hunt as she was my husbands s grandmother) first lived with her son Charlie and his wife Hazel when Richard and I were married in 1946. She later lived with her daughter, Nora (Hunt) O'Dell on the north west corner of Johnson and Berry Street. They had a large garden tha Granny Hunt spent a lot of time in - hoeing an weeding. I do not have the month she died in 1951; but one day after working in the garden she came in and went to bad telling her daughter she was tired. She was not sick just old age and she never got out of bed again; she died 3 days later. I remember going with Rich to see her and she did not do anything but just lay there and sleep. What a lovely way to go.

This lady was a short, tiny person. She dipped snuff and wore those old fashion long aprons. She could be crude in telling dirty jokes and since I hadn't been raised to hear elders speak this way; I was simply aghast when I first heard her. Every one loved her.

Of all of Richard's brothers and his sisters; it seems he spent a lot of nights with his Granny and Grandad Hunt as he was growing up.

This was sent to me by Bobbie B. Lynch Dec. 15, 1999:

Now one day recently I was looking for another family in my 1900 Washington Co. census records and what did I find instead. I knew my mother-in-law, Pearl Luzelle (Hunt) Lynch was born 22 Sep 1900 in

Brendwood, AR. Her father was a Frisco section forman for over 50 years. He was transferred to Brentwood and Granny said he lived in the Section House there the same shortly thereafter moved back to Springdale, AR and lived in the Section House here until he retired.

Notes for JOHN MARCUS ROBISON:

John Robison's middle name was Marcus per Joy Robison. Joy (Guentert) Robison's connection is through her grandmother Laura Robison, a sister of John's. Joy sent me the following information:

JOHN MARCUS ROBISON 4 (POWELL R.3, JOHN2, EZEKIEL1) was born February 11, 1869, and died 1945 in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. He married SARAH J. MARTIN. She was born October 15, 1869, and died August 21, 1952 in Tahlequah, Cherokee Co., Ok.. Children of JOHN ROBISON and SARAH MARTIN are:

i. JAMES ARTHUR ROBISON, b. May 2, 1892.

ii. WILLIAM ELMER ROBISON, b. August 24, 1896; d. April 1, 1963.

iii. RAY EDWARD ROBISON, b. April 11, 1903; d. December 27, 1985; m. REBA STARR, April 11, 1938; b. November 17, 1912.

vii. JOE FRANKLIN ROBISON, b. January 11, 1895.

viii. ROBERT LEE ROBISON, b. March 25, 1905.

Now I had John's birthdate as 1872 per census extractions I've collected and I also had just a few differences in the childrens names and birthdates. I have updated some of the information to reflect Joy's research; which she was kind enough to share. [I had Sarah's death date as 1949, I need obits for these people.]

WILLIAM N. MARTIN, tenth child and seventh son was born April 9th, 1844, and died June 4th, 1847. He would not appear on any fed. Census.

SEARCHING FOR CLUES JOSEPH MARTIN

This is not our Joseph Martin, nor can it be his father. I followed up on this for looking for clues to our Jsph. Martin and to eliminate the Jsph. Martin that appears in the Head of Household Index f or Missouri – 1830. I found out that this Joseph Martin would not have been old enough to be his father and did not fit in terms of age and those present in the home to be our Jsph.

Last Will and Testament of Joseph Martine (Joseph Martino)

I Joseph Martine being weak in body but in perfectly sound disposing memory do make this my last will and testament.

I will to my beloved wife Arcanse Martino all my real and personal property to have and enjoy the same during her natural life.

It is my will that she shall pay all my just debts and after my death to attend to my burial in a decend manner.

After the death of my wife it is my will that the property she may have may be equally divided among all my children.

I appoint my wife Areaude Martino my lawful exectrix.

Dated 22 March 1837; Witnesses Thos. W. Cunningham; Louis Kerserae, Joseph Tayon SR [Vo. 2 page 72] Will produced in court 9 November 1837 by Thomas W. Cunningham. Recorded 9 November 1837

I also followed up on the two Jsph. Martin’s listed in the Howard Co., MO. They also were eliminated.

There was also a very interesting Jsph. Martin, and his brother, Zadock Martin of VA in early Platte County. One of the early census extractions seemed to point to the possibility that he may be ours. I followed up and there is a detailed family biography in the Platte County, MO History book and he too was eliminated.

Another interesting possible clue is a Adam Martin that came with Daniel Boone to Missouri. James Tharp the librarian in Independence, MO had shown me a list of families that had traveled with Boone. (Possibly Daniel M. Boone.) I remember there being a A. Martin or possibly Adam Martin. I found a land claim in Missouri that named Henry Stephenson the assignee of Arthur Burns. Testimony was taking July 29th, 1806 where John Laflour states that Burns cultivated crops on the said land and had resided there in March of 1804 with his wife and five children. Adam Martin states that he too was present in July of 1803 and testified that the said Burns received permission from a James MacKay to settle on said tract. I always wondered why there were no other Martin’s noted near our Jsph. in the St. Charles 1817 Census, the 1819 Montgomery Co. tax record or the 1840 Warren County census. Could he have come with this said Adam Martin. Having mentioned this there are no children named Adam in Jsph. and Jemima’s history.

I also wondered if the Jsph. and Jemima could be the following family noted in KY in this 1870 Fed. Census, the ages match, birth places match. But, I can not find anyone near them with connections that I’m aware of. I believe that Jemima’s middle name "may" have started with an "A". Also, the Joseph Kelly in the HH makes me suspect that he is possibly a grandson living with them and we are fairly confident that there are no Kelly’s in that immediate family. My opinion is that this Joseph Martin is probably not ours either.
