MY GARDNER, MOORE, FRANKS, & POWELL FAMILIES

I now have been able to identify my 2nd great grandmother, Mary Ellen Franks Gardner, whom is the daughter of Isaac Franks and Hannah Elizabeth Wade. I have had this photo for some years and finally have now found my Gardner family. I had only known that she was "Grandma Gardner" written on this photograph. Photograph was taken in Brainerd, Minnesota (no date)

Finding my Gardner family has been a real chore in the fact that my great grandfather didn't leave much of a trail and no one left alive in the family was any more wiser about them either. Part of the reason too is due to my great grandparents divorcing in 1916 and grandpa left Kansas for parts unknown. There weren't any aunts or uncles around that we are aware of that visited with the children or grandchildren living in the Iola, Kansas vicinity. It is not known how much contact he had with his siblings, as he was quite a rough and rowdy character. It is my opinion that if he was around them they probably weren't so keen on his visits due to his drinking problem and onaryness. My cousin told me she didn't even know she had a grandpa Gardner until she was probably around 10 or 11. Out of the blue he reappeared. He had spent some years out in California where I find him living in 1920. So he wouldn't have been around when a few of the later grandchildren were born, including my father.

I finally was able to find him on the 1870 census with his family living in Emporia, Lyon Co. Kansas. From there the families moved over to Kansas City, Missouri, Meade Co. South Dakota, Minnesota, and Los Angeles, California. I am hoping to eventually make contact with other Gardner relatives and put our family back together.

My Gardner family goes back to early settlement of Belmont Co. Ohio. Although at this time I have no proof, I believe that my 4th great grandparents may have been Jeremiah Gardner/Garner who was born abt 1772 in Westmoreland, Virginia. Jeremiah married Deborah Mors (or is this Moore?) 5 Nov 1793 in Westmoreland Co. Virginia. No one seems to have the children of Jeremiah and Deborah and I think the reason may be because they moved to Belmont Co. Ohio by at least 1820. I believe that they were in Loudoun Co. Virginia in 1810 before they made the move to Belmont Co. Ohio.

Jeremiah may have been this same one that served in the War of 1812

Name: JEREMIAH GARDNER Company: 65 REG'T (AUG.-OCT., 1814,) VIRGINIA MILITIA. Rank - Induction: CORPORAL Rank - Discharge: CORPORAL Roll Box: 78 Roll Exct: 602

On the 1810 Loudoun Co. Virginia census was a Jeremiah and Andrew GARNER. These two men then seem to appear in Belmont Co. Ohio by 1820. Andrew Garner had married Hannah Milner in Loudoun Co. Virginia 5 Jan 1799. On the 1820 Belmont Co. Ohio census we find:

Hannah Gardner Union twp Hannah Milner married Andrew Garner in Loudoun Co Virginia 1799 100000021

Jeremiah Gardner Union twp 0011010221102

I want to make note that one of the reasons I think this is because my 3rd great grandfather Washington named one of his son's Jeremiah, mostly likely in honor of his father.

I think that Jeremiah and Deborah had at least three children:

1) Washington Gardner b abt 1803 Virginia married Mary Moore 8 March 1827 Belmont Co. Ohio (MY DIRECT LINE)

2) Nancy Gardner b 4 Dec 1807 married William George Moore 30 Jan 1834 Belmont Co Ohio

3) Margaret Gardner b 1810 Virginia married Wesley Moore 29 Jan 1824 Belmont Co Ohio

All of these Moore's are siblings and children of Isaac Moore b abt 1776 died 1835 Belmont Co. Ohio, married 26 Jul 1801 Loudoun Co. Virginia to 1st wife, Sarah Campbell, who are the mother of these children. He married 8 Feb 1811 Loudoun Co. Virginia to 2nd wife, Francis Morris. Isaac left the following will in Belmont Co Ohio making provision for his children and his 2nd wife:

Whereas I Isaac Moore, of the County of Belmont and State of Ohio, being Weak in Body, but of Sound and disposing mind and memory, and Calling to attend the Certainty of death, and the uncertainty of of the time thereof do make Constitute and ordain this my last will and Testament in manner and form following.

Thirdly, I wish all my personal property sold at public sale by my Executor and my wife to have the third of the value thereof and my son William the other two thirds.

Fourthly my will is that my wife Fanny Moore have the dwelling house where we now live for one year after my decease and one years provision and after that time I will and bequeath the whole of said farm whereon I now live containing one hundred acres to my son William and his Heirs forever, with the following provisos;

1840 Belmont Co Ohio M600 MOORE, Fanny Warren Twp 184 (Isaac's second wife)

Daughter Jane Moore married 4 Sept 1832 William Carl Martin in Belmont Co. Ohio. By 1839 Jane and her family were in Bureau Co. Illinois where she died 18 Sept 1875. Other of the Moore families went to Jefferson Co. Iowa and Macomb, McDonough Co. Illinois. Daughter Sarah Ann Moore, who was dead when Isaac wrote his will, was married to Isaac Moore and had the three grandchildren mentioned in Isaac's will, Sarah Ann Marshall b 13 Jul 1829 married George Washington Kiser 21 Jun 1851 Bureau Co Ill; Mary Jane Marshall married Nehemiah Montgomery and Isaac Amber Marshall b abt 1832 married Amanda Phillips 3 Oct 1861 Belmont Co Ohio. Isaac Marshall then took his family to Cedar Co. Iowa by 1880.

My 3rd great grandparents Washington Gardner born abt 1804 Virginia and Mary Moore, married 8 Mar 1827 Belmont Co. Ohio. Apparently Mary has died abt 1835 and Washington married a 2nd time to Nancy M. McFrederick 8 Dec 1836. I think he has probably married a 3rd time to a Rebecca born abt 1819. I don't know if he had any children with her. I have not been able to locate him after 1850. Washington is in the 1830 & 1840 census of Belmont Co as well.

I believe that Deborah Moore Gardner was still alive in 1830 and living with her son Washington Gardner in Belmont Co Ohio.

I believe Washington married a Rebecca Harris prior to 1850 census, but have not found a marriage record for his 3rd marriage. On the Gardner mail list at rootsweb, I found this query. It may be that Washington and Rebecca had two sons together, Cleophas (male) Gardner b abt 1853 and Benjamin Franklin Gardner b 11 Oct 1854.

Gardner Mail List

I am looking for information regarding Cleophas Gardner, born ca. 1852 probably in Belmont Co, Ohio. Lived as an adult in Lorain, Ohio. He was half-brother to Franklin B. Gardner. Thanks, Karin Goudy

Hi- Thought I'd say that I am still looking for information that would connect Washington Gardner, age 48 in 1850, of Belmont County, Ohio with Cleophas Gardner, age 7 and Franklin Benjamin Gardner, age 5, in 1860 living with Benjamin and Rebecca Harris, ages 70 and 72, in Guernsey Co Ohio. I believe he is their father, but can't prove it so far. Thanks Karin Goudy goudy@alpha1.ctaz.com

It appears that Washington and Rebecca are both apparently dead by abt 1855. Then three of the boys, William, Andrew, and Jarrett pack up about this same time and leave Belmont Co. Ohio and head for Illinois, leaving brother Jeremiah Gardner behind. By 1860 all three boys are living in Bureau Co. Illinois near their Moore aunt's and uncles.

By 1870 William and Mary (Franks) Gardner had moved to Emporia, Lyon Co. Kansas. I can't find William and Mary at all in 1880, but I know that Mary and the children are still alive in 1889 living in Kansas City, Missouri.

William's brother Jarrett first settled in 1870 Greenwood Co. Kansas and then 1880 Lyon Co. Kansas. I was able to establish Wm. and Jarrett as brothers because William's daughter Ida Mae was living with Jarrett in Emporia in the 1880 census, and of course that they lived in Bureau Co. Illinois together in 1860 prior to their move to Kansas. It seems that the majority of both families moved to Kansas City, Jackson Co. Missouri sometime in the late 1880's.

William and Mary had at least 9 known children:

1)Washington Frank Gardner b 6 Jan 1851 Belmont Co Ohio (married Emma Lenk) and lived in Meade Co. South Dakota then moved to Los Angeles Co. California where he died 24 Sept 1944 at the age of 93 yrs 3 mos and 18 days. Frank and Emma had 3 children: 1) Mabel B Gardner b Feb 1884 Meade South Dakota married Mr. Cooper; 2) Harry Harrison Gardner b 4 Mar 1891 Mead Co South Dakota died Oct 1979 Farmington, Saint Francois Co. Missouri; and 3) Fern V Gardner b abt 1904 Meade Co South Dakota married Mr. Hurlbert. Washington and Emma are both buried Forest Lawn Cemetery, Graceland Section, Lot 1822, sp 3 & 4, Glendale, Los Angeles Co. California.

***********THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT*****************

Now I know why my 2nd great grandmother Mary Ellen Franks Gardner had the above photo taken in Brainerd, Minnesota. She was probably living up there with them in the late 1890's after she left Kansas City, Missouri.

Ida Mae Gardner and William Thomas Deane had 5 known children: John L Deane; Frank Willard Deane; Hazel May Deane; Ralph A Deane; and Rex Edward Deane b Nov 5 1909 died 15 April 1961 North Hollywood, California buried Oakwood Memorial Cemetery, Chatsworth, Los Angeles Co. California. I think Rex probably had a son who submitted some of this information on the LDS ancestral file:

Microfilm: 1394130 Submission: AF83-027361

Submitter(s): RONALD LEON DEANE, 1795 ELSENA, EUGENE OR USA 97401

Ronald also knew the maiden name of William Gardner's wife as Mary Elizabeth Franks. And he's the one that put the birth dates for William and Mary on LDS

8) Edwin A. b abt 1869 Illinois

9) Minnie Bell Gardner b 10 Jan 1871 Kansas died 29 Jul 1951 Los Angeles Co. California. Minnie married George G. Hastings b 7 June 1872 Michigan died 1 Oct 1962 Los Angeles Co. California

I have been trying to find these children and to date have only found Washington Frank; Ida Mae; and of course my great grandfather and Minnie.

I haven't been able to establish death dates for William and Mary yet, but I do know that Mary was living in Kansas City, Jackson Co. Missouri in 1889 and listed in the City Directory as a widow of William. She was living just a few households from my Powell family and probably the reason that Charles met my great grandmother Luella Powell prior to their marriage in 1889 in Kansas City. It is suspected that she MAY have died in California based on divorce court records of Charles & Luella in 1916, there was mention that he went to visit his mother in California.

Below is a link to my database at rootsweb on what I have now been able to document on my Gardner family. If anyone has information as to the parents of Washington Gardner and Mary Moore, please contact me.

Gardner Database at Rootsweb

These are my great grandparents, Charles William Gardner and Luella Powell.

Very little is known about my great grandfather, Charles William Gardner, born 7 October 1862 in Illinois died 29 April 1940 Iola, Allen Co. Kansas buried Iola Cemetery, just west of Iola in an unmarked grave. He was quite an elusive man, never staying in one place for very long until he was much older. Luella Powell was born 2 Dec 1867 Columbia, Boone Co. Missouri and died 28 Oct 1954 Kansas City, Wyandotte Co. Kansas. She is buried in the Highland Park Cemetery, Kansas City, Kansas. She is the daughter of William H. Powell and Tillitha Ann Turner, who were from Audrain Co. Missouri and died in Meade Co. South Dakota. William and Luella were married in Kansas City, Jackson Co. MO 12 Nov 1889.

According to information I have obtained from a cousin, shortly after their marriage they headed west to Deadwood, Lawrence Co. South Dakota. I have now been able to determine that he may have gone with his brother Washington and his sister Ida Mae, as they were both living in Meade Co. South Dakota and Luella's family also had gone there in abt 1893.

The 1900 AND 1910 Census states his parents were born in Ohio and they're first two children were born in South Dakota. They must have spent about 4 or 5 years there, by March 1895 they had moved to Iola, Allen Co. Kansas.They resided for a number of years thereafter. It is not known why they ended up in Kansas.

After they moved to Iola, Kansas, great grandpa would take off and ramble around through Kansas, Nebraska, and evidently California. He would come home from time to time, have marital difficulties, and be off again.

They farmed on Butler's farm around Iola and then in 1910 resided at 428 S. 3rd. In 1912 were living on North 4th Street in Iola. Great grandma Luella virtually raised their 4 living children alone. She would take in laundry and boarders to support her family.

On the 18th October 1915 great grandpa filed a divorce petition in Iola, Allen Co., Kansas against grandma Luella. She had left town for a few days to visit her sister in Kansas City, Missouri and some other relatives. My grandmother, Flossie notified her that it had appeared in the local newspaper while she was away. Luella immediately returned to Iola to answer the complaint. Their divorce was final 30 March 1916.

Sometime in the 1920's or 1930's Charles "Bill" married HAZEL E. MARVIN and lived in Olathe, Kansas. My cousin can remember making visits there as a child. Grandpa "Bill" would play the fiddle for the grandchildren on their visits.

By 1936, he and Hazel were residing at 332 S. Ohio Street, Iola, Kansas. He was living at 402 N. 4th Street, Iola at the time of his death.

Charles William Gardner & Hazel E. Marvin

When my father was put up for adoption in 1919, great grandma Luella was residing in Iola. Sometime between 1919 and 1923 she moved to 3123 N. 23rd Street, Kansas City, Kansas in a house owned by her son, Chester Clarence. At the time of her death in 1954, she was residing at 738 Broadview, Kansas City, Kansas.
