        James A Adams [R2h7c], son of James Allen Adams and Susan Lucinda Vance, was born 31 December 1842 in Oldham Co KY. He married Emma Taliaferro in 1872 and in 1900 they lived at Goshen, Oldham Co a few doors from his elder brother Robert. Emma was born in KY on 21 May 1850. They had four children by 1900, with three still alive, but only two lived at home then. Emma died 22 June 1908 and was buried in Adams family cemetery #3 in Oldham Co near Skylight. In 1910 widower James lived at Skylight with his eldest and youngest two children. He died 25 January 1918 at Goshen, Oldham Co of heart failure and was also buried in Adams family cemetery #3. His death certificate said he was “age 75yrs, 25da” when he died, indicating that his birth was on the above birth date, yet the death record also said, in error, that his birth date was 31 December 1832. In 1920 their son Alonzo then lived with brother James A Adams and sister Mary A Adams at Westport, Oldham Co; the surviving unmarried children did not live with their father. James A Adams Jr was the child missing from the 1880 and 1900 census-

2.     Alonzo Morrison Adams, b 19 May 1878

3.     child Adams, b & d by 1900. (23u)

        James A “Guy” Adams [R2h1a8], son of James Darwin Adams and Lucy Ophelia Snyder, was born 4 August 1856 in Boone Co KY. His birth records shows that his mother was “Lucretia Addams” and his father was “J D Addams.” James grew up in Jefferson Co, but in 1880 lived in Grant Co with his wife’s parents. If his death record’s informant was correct about Boone Co, then it would have been an easy trip for his parents to travel to Boone Co from Louisville even if his mother was about nine months pregnant, since in these years steam boats traveled between major cities on the Ohio River.

        James married Amanda E Ballard in 1879. She was born 16 May 1854 in Grant Co KY, daughter of John Ballard and Sarah _____. Amanda died 28 March 1890 and was buried in Mt Carmel Cemetery in Pendleton Co. James married again, to Mrs Minnie E (Williams) Franks, his daughter Rosetta’s neighbor at Short Creek, Pendleton Co, and they lived in Grant Co. Minnie was born in KY in 1873. Her first husband is unknown; Robert E Franks was the second, married in 1902. James died 27 July 1944 and was buried in Mt Carmel Cemetery next to Amanda. With Amanda, James had four children, and with Minnie, he had three more children by 1920-

b.     Daisy D Adams, b 28 Oct 1882

c.     James Walter Adams, b 23 Mar 1886

d.     Sarah M Adams, b 14 Oct 1889

e.     Lillian Elizabeth Adams, b 15 May 1913

f.     Thomas Franklin Adams, b 15 Sep 1914

g.     Raymond E Adams, b 14 Jun 1916

Boone Co KY is about five counties northeast of Jefferson Co, and is next to the Ohio River.

Grandson Floyd Dance, born in KY in 1901 lived with James and Minnie in 1920. Minnie’s children from her second marriage were Robert L Franks and Ellen M Franks, born in 1905 and in May 1909 in Pendleton Co KY. (254b,6qr, 429c, 255rsbwd)


        James Allen Adams [R2h7], son of Mary Rowan and William Adams, was born 8 October 1804 in Oldham Co KY (Jefferson Co per son William’s death certificate). He always used the Allen name. In 1840 he lived two doors from William Adams Jr (born 1795), and three doors from Mary Adams (born 1793). In Mary Adams’ home in 1840 was her sister Susanna (born 1798). Allen married Susan Lucinda Vance on 25 August 1838 in Oldham Co. She was born in Oldham Co KY on 15 August 1817 (age 38 in 1850), daughter of Robert W Vance. Since Allen may have had a child born before this marriage with Lucinda, he may have married around 1835 and that wife died; there is no record of this first marriage. Susan’s daughter Mary Agnes Adams’ death certificate gave Susan’s family name. Susan died 10 August 1850 in Oldham Co and was buried in Adams family cemetery #1. Her gravestone has her birth and death dates, and “Wife of Allen Adams.” This cemetery is on private property about half a mile east of the town of Goshen where highway 42 meets Goshen lane, in Oldham Co. In 1860 and 1870 at Saltillo, Allen’s wife was Eliza Augusta Taliaferro, born in Oldham Co in October 1825, daughter of James Taliaferro and Harriet Mayo. In the 1850 census there were two Thornton step-children in their home: Theodore Thornton and Anah Harriet Thornton, ages 12 and 10 and born in Henry Co. In 1870 they were not with Allen and Augusta, but in 1880 Anah F Thornton, age 32 was (was age 3 in 1850). So apparently Augusta had married a Mr Thornton first, then “Mrs Augusta Thornton” married James Allen Adams in October 1854 in Oldham Co after Susan died. He and his families lived in Oldham Co for years. Allen died 15 December 1893, probably at Saltillo since he was living there in 1880, age 76. He was buried in Adams family cemetery #1 with his first wife. In 1900 Augusta lived with her son Coleman at Goshen, Oldham Co. She died in 1907 and was buried in Adams family cemetery #3 in Oldham Co. This is about half a mile east of Skylight near the intersection of Liberty Lane and highway 42, and is about 6 miles east of Adams cemetery #1 where Allen was buried. Augusta reported in 1900 that she had nine children, with eight still alive. With Allen she had at least six, and with her first husband had at least two. Probably the missing child who died was Allen’s. James Allen Adams had six children with Susan and six or seven with Augusta, all born in Oldham Co-

In 1900 and oftentimes before, Black workers lived with Augusta and Allen, and their family name was generally Thornton. Apparently Augusta’s first husband had slaves who were well treated because they remained loyal workers with Augusta’s family over the years after 1865.

 Augusta’s father James Taliaferro was a Captain in the State Militia. (74,23jknmqrsupc,30n6d)


        James Allen Adams (Jr) [R2h7c1], son of James A Adams and Emma Taliaferro, was born 31 May 1873 (age 35 in 1910, 45 in 1920, 55 in 1930) in Henry Co or Oldham Co KY. He was not found in the 1880 nor the 1900 census living at home. But in 1920 James was age 45, single, and living with his brother Alonzo, sister-in-law Eva Bell Adams (Alonzo’s wife), sister Mary A Adams, and three of Alonzo’s sons at Westport, Oldham Co. Alonzo was the only one of the siblings who had married by then. When James registered for the WW I draft, he gave his birth date as shown above, but a year younger, and named his brother “Alonzo M Adams” living at Skylight as his nearest relative. James died on 4 March 1941 at “age 67;” his gravestone and death certificate have birth and death dates of 1873-1941; the gravestone says “Brother.” Since he lived with his sister Mary Agnes for years, she was probably the informant for James’ death record and determined the gravestone inscription; she would have known James’ accurate birth date. He probably “fudged” his age by a year to be eligible for the WW I draft, and hence that record has him a year younger. He never married. James was buried next to his sister Mary Agnes Adams in Shiloh Methodist Church Cemetery in Oldham Co. (M,23vwfdc)


        James C Adams [R2h1a1b], son of William Harvey Adams and Louisa E Humble, was born 13 November 1865 in Robertson Co KY and was named after his maternal grandfather. He moved to Johnson Co KS with his parents by 1880, and married Mary Elizabeth Campbell in 1889. They lived at Oxford, Johnson Co in 1895. Mary was born 4 October 1871 in Kansas City KS, daughter of William Samuel Campbell and Mary Jan Fulton. In 1900 they lived with his parents. Mary died in early 1910 leaving James with eight children to raise. By 1919 he married again, to Martha A _____ from MO. She was born in 1875, but they had no children by 1920. James died in 1938 in Wyandotte Co KS. His and Mary’s children were all born in Johnson Co KS and all still lived at home in 1920-

Oldham Co is the county just east of Jefferson Co. She was born in August 1820 in Oldham Co, daughter of John Snyder. In 1850 they were living in Daviess Co where he was a farmer; he was James D Adams, age 31 then, and his wife was Lucy O, age 30. In 1860 and into the 1880s they lived in Jefferson Co near Harrods Creek, but in 1856 one of their sons was born in Boone Co. In 1860 they had the same first six children in their home from the 1850 census, plus three more born in the 1850s. James died 8 September 1892 and was buried in Harrods Creek Cemetery at Brownsboro, Oldham Co.

She was a stenographer and died at Skylight, Oldham Co on 27 November 1923 of heart disease. She was buried in Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville. Her death record said her mother’s name was “Mary Adams,” but this may be from old fashioned thinking, where people generally thought a woman’s name must change when she married. (23rsud)


        Mary Agnes Adams [R2h7c4], daughter of James A Adams and Emma Taliaferro, was born in May 1894 (was age 6 or 16 in 1900, 25 in 1910, 30 in 1920, 45 in 1930) in Oldham Co KY. The 1920 census taker wasn’t very accurate with ages, and the 1900 census was water stained, so the only census records which show a reliable age was 1910 and 1930. Mary did not marry. In 1920 and 1930 she lived with her brother James Allen Adams in Oldham Co. She was buried next to her brother “Allen Adams” in Shiloh Methodist Church Cemetery in Oldham Co, and her gravestone has the dates of “1884-1965" and says “Sister.” Perhaps the stone was so weathered that the 1894 looks like 1884.

He was born 6 July 1845 at Louisville, son of John Wilson Curry and Theodocia Herron, and died 10 November 1924 at St Louis, MO of cancer. They moved to St Louis in the mid-1870s and Andrew was a salesman in a dry goods store there. In 1912 Ella and daughters Jennie and Ophelia took a trip to England, and returned on 16 August 1912 at New York City on the ship SS Adriatic. After Andrew died, Ella and daughter Jennie lived with daughter Ophelia in Ophelia’s home at St Louis. Ella died at her daughter Ophelia’s home at University City, St Louis Co on 9 January 1931. She and Andrew were buried in Valhalla Cemetery. They had three daughters-

        Virginia Adams [R2h7b2], daughter of of Robert F Adams and Mary _____, was born in May 1870 in Oldham Co KY. She had not married by 1900 and lived with her parents at Goshen, Oldham Co. (23rsu)


        Walter James Adams [R2h1a4b], son of Walter Miller Adams and Georgiana Stumpf, was born 5 August 1889 at Bolinas, Marin Co CA, and never married. He was a dairy farmer in 1920 and lived with his parents into the 1930s. In 1930 he and his sister Edna’s husband both worked for RCA. Walter died 25 May 1954 in Marin Co. (CAd, M,568uvwf)


        Walter Miller Adams [R2h1a4], son of James Darwin Adams and Lucy Ophelia Snyder, was born in 16 December 1846 in Daviess Co KY but grew up at Harrods Creek, Jefferson Co. In the 1870s he moved to Georgiana, a Chinese community in Sacramento Co CA. On 15 August 1886 in CA Walter married Georgiana Stumpf and they lived at Bolinas, Marin Co (the county just north of San Francisco). She was born in CA on 25 December 1866 and grew up at San Francisco, daughter of John Stumpf (born 1836 in Hesse-Darmstadt State, Germany, came to US in 1851) and Regina Beet (born 1844 in Prussia State, Germany, came to US in 1862), and died in Marin Co on 5 March 1951. They ran a boarding house at Bolinas. Walter was age 83 and still living at Bolinas with Georgiana in 1930. He no doubt died there in the 1930s. She had eight children by 1910 with five still alive and all born in CA; probably the last seven (perhaps all) were born at Bolinas-

        Willard Emery Adams [R2h1a1f], son of William Harvey Adams and Louisa E Humble, was born in December 1871 in KY and grew up in Johnson Co KS. He was a twin of Francis Ezra Adams. In 1920 Willard lived at Washington, Jackson Co MO next door to his parents, and had married Mattie L _____. Mattie was born in KY in 1877. Willard was a grocery man. (175s,39w)


        William Adams, born 12 October 1792 in Henry Co, was a son of Galvin Adams and Elizabeth Whitesides. William married Sarah C Jones in Henry Co KY on 19 December 1821. Henry Co is the county just east of Oldham Co. Sarah was born 16 December 1801 in Henry Co, daughter of John Jones and Elizabeth Coplinger, and died 26 August 1878 at Chariton, Henry Co. In 1830 a William Adams lived in Henry Co (as did many other Adams families), but the William in the census had no children, so was not likely to be the William who married Sarah in 1821. William, Sarah, and some of their children lived in Oldham Co in 1850 (he was age 57 then). This William died 20 March 1862 in Oldham Co. His known children, by 1850, were-

1.     John J Adams, b 4 Nov 1822 at Louisville, died 14 September 1885 at Greenbush, Warren Co IL. (W)

2.     James Adams, b 1834 (23n)

3.     Frances Adams, b 1837 (23nq)

4.     Ellen Adams, b 1838 (23nq)

5.     Nancy Adams, b 1839 (W,23q)

6.     Willis Adams, b 22 Oct 1841, died 6 November 1877. (W,23nq)

7.     Calvin Adams, b 2 Sep 1844 (W,23nq)

Note: The Adams families in Oldham Co KY in the pre-1850 years were descendants of William Adams who had married Mary Rowan.

See John Q Adams, born in February 1843 in KY. (W,23nq)


        William Adams Jr [R2h4], son of Mary Rowan and William Adams, was born 14 February 1795 in Jefferson Co KY. He was named in his father's 24 January 1835 will, receiving “a lot in the city of Louisville on Main Street.” William married Margaret Magruder on 4 April 1829 in Oldham Co. She was born in VA on 24 May 1800, a daughter of Enoch Magruder and Susannah Wilson, and was William Adams Sr's next door neighbor in 1820. William was an executor of his father's will (as was also Wilson Magruder and Lillian Magruder).

        Since William married Margaret at about age 34, he could easily have married before his marriage with her, but there is no marriage record indicating this. In 1820 in his parents’ home, there was a young man of age to be William Jr, but no little children; there were two young women, one who could be William Jr’s first wife. In any case, in 1830 in the two counties where William was likely to have been living (Oldham and Jefferson Counties), there were no William Adams names in Jefferson Co; in Oldham Co there were two: one was born in the 1790s (census page 289) and his wife was born in the 1800s; they had three daughters and two sons by then (all under age 10). The other William Adams’ age was in his 60s (census page 273), and he had no wife, but there were three women born in the 1800s and two men born in the 1816-1820 years. This elder William Adams was no doubt William Jr’s widowed father, and probably some of William Jr’s brothers and sisters, or their spouses. William Jr’s mother had died in 1823.

        William was a doctor, but in the early 19th Century, medical training took no more than a year or so, and without the need of a four year University first. So even though William was a medical doctor, he could have had time for his medical training and marry before he married Margaret Magruder.

        He and Margaret lived in Jefferson Co in 1840. We know this is the son of Mary Rowan because William had two spinster sisters, Mary and Susanna, and they lived next door to him in 1840. Two doors away was Allen Adams probably William’s brother, born in the 1800s. William was in Jefferson Co in 1850. He died on 1 April 1864 in Oldham Co. See William Adams, born 12 October 1792 in Henry Co. William, husband of Margaret, was buried in Adams family cemetery #2 in Oldham Co. This is located on private property near the intersection of Highway 42 and Locke Lane. Margaret died 24 January 1878 and is buried with William. On her gravestone are her dates, and “Wife of Dr W Adams / Mother / Born in Virginia.” William had about eleven children; the first five were from a first (unknown) wife-

        William Allen Adams [R2h7b7], son of Robert F Adams and Mary _____, was born 19 Jun 1881 in Oldham Co KY and grew up there. He married Martha Hilma from Germany in 1908 and they at first lived with his uncle John R Adams at Skylight, Oldham Co. Martha was born in 1881. William was a merchant at Skylight, Oldham Co in 1918. In 1930 they lived at Sugar Creek, Shelby Co IN with William’s sister Anna, and was then a farm worker on the Leet farm. It does not appear that they had children. (M,23uv, 257f)


        William B Adams [R2h1a1b3], son of James C Adams and Mary Elizabeth Campbell, was born 10 March 1898 in Johnson Co KS and lived at Kenneth, Johnson Co in 1918. He lived at Kansas City MO in the 1980s and died there in May 1985. He was not married by early 1930 and lived with his father at Oxford, KS. (M,Z,175uvwf)


        William F Adams [R2h1a1c], son of William H Adams and Louisa E Humble, was born in 1866 in KY. He may be a twin of Robert, and was probably the child who died by 1900. (175s)


        William Harvey Adams [R2h1a1], son of James Darwin Adams and Lucy Ophelia Snyder, was born 15 December 1842 in Daviess Co KY and grew up there and in Jefferson Co. He married Louisa E Humble in 1864. She was born in Harrison Co KY on 15 April 1843, daughter of James C Humble and Mary Jane Crawford. In the late 1870s they moved to Oxford, Johnson Co KS (the census showed her name to be Laura in 1880), and were still there in 1905 (perhaps longer). In 1910 and 1920 William lived at Jackson Co MO. William died on 31 July 1925 at Olathe, Johnson Co KS and Louisa then lived with her daughter Alma at Washington, Jackson Co (Alma was also a widow or had divorced by then). Louisa died on 28 December 1932 at Dallas, Jackson Co and was buried in Forest Hill Cemetery. She and William had nine children, eight still alive in 1900-

        William P Adams [R2h4a1] son of William Rowan Adams and Emily C Ross, was born in 10 August 1846 in Oldham Co KY. He lived at Johnsontown, Jefferson Co in 1880 (his brother Bruce also lived there in 1880), and had married Alice _____ in 1874. Alice was born in KY in July 1854. She probably died by the early 1890s because William’s wife in 1900 was a new wife named Alice E, and they married in 1894. There were four children in their home in 1900; two were young adults, and two were born in the 1890s, and Alice E stated that she had only two children. Hence, this Alice was a second wife. She was born in KY in July 1867 (per 1900 census). In 1910 William’s wife was named Emma, but with the same birth year as Alice from the 1900 census, and the same marriage year. Perhaps the census taker in 1900 talked with the older two children, and asked them what their mother’s name was, and they answered literally. In 1920, Emma was Emma C, a widow (age 51) living with her youngest daughter at Valley Station, Jefferson Co. William died at Louisville on 24 May 1915 of heart failure, and was buried in Cave Hill Cemetery. He lived at Valley Station in 1900 and 1910. The family informant who supplied personal information for his death certificate was his son Chester, of Louisville.

        “Emma C Adams” died at Valley Station on 12 August 1922 of tuberculosis. “Mrs Mary Cunningham” supplied the personal information for her death certificate, and said Emma was born in July, but no birth day or year was given. Apparently the doctor or undertaker had asked what Emma’s age was, and wrote 64 with the first answer (born 1867) in the age at death spot. Then that was crossed out and age 55 was written. Mary Cunningham was keeping her mother’s actual age a secret, even after death. Emma was born in Grayson Co KY, daughter of John Gay and Mary Harrel, and was buried in Cave Hill Cemetery. She usually had the middle initial C, and her son was Rowan Claggett Adams, so perhaps Emma’s middle name was also Claggett. William had three children with Alice and two with Emma C, all born in KY-

a.     Emily A Adams, b Mar 1874

b.     Laura Adams, b 1877

c.     Chester William Adams, b 23 Feb 1881

d.     Rowan Claggett Adams, b 14 Feb 1895

e.     Mary Adams, b Feb 1898 (23nqr, 6suvwd)


        William Rowan Adams [R2h4a], probably the eldest son of William Adams Jr, was born in 1822 in Oldham Co KY. He married Emily C Ross in Oldham Co on 25 September 1845. She was born in Oldham Co in 1830 and likely died in the late 1850s in Oldham Co because William and his children were living with “Miss Susan Adams” in Oldham Co. Susan (born 1798) was a daughter of Mary Rowan and William Adams, and would have been William Rowan Adams’ aunt. William’s six children were born in Oldham Co-

1.     William P Adams, b 10 Aug 1846

2.     Bruce Adams, b Nov 1848

3.     Benjamin Adams, b 1850

4.     Martha Adams, b 1852

6.     Thomas Adams, b 1856 (GA,23mnq)


        William Thornton Adams [R2h7k], son of James Allen Adams and Eliza Augusta Taliaferro, was born 14 September 1864 in Oldham Co KY. He became a physician and lived at Richlards, Vernon Co MO in 1910. William had married Estella “Essie” Koontz in 1894. He died at Richards on 19 August 1924 of heart failure. His death certificate gave the names of his parents and their birth places. William was buried at Fort Scott, KS. Essie was born in MO on 15 September 1872 at Richards, daughter of Frank Koontz and a Ms Geery from VA. After William died, Essie moved to Kansas City, Jackson Co where she died of heart failure on 26 December 1947. She was buried at Fort Scott, KS with William. The person who supplied the family information for Essie’s death certificate was “Mrs W L Hooper” of Kansas City (daughter Gladys M Adams). William and Essie had three daughters, all born at Richards, Vernon Co MO-

        Edmonia Jane Barrick [R2h6a], daughter of Lucinda Adams and Charles Barrick, was born 26 April 1836 in KY, probably Oldham Co.

She was born 26 April 1836, daughter of Lucinda Adams and Charles Barrack. Edmonia was buried in Brownsboro / Harrods Creek Cemetery near Harrods Creek. The informant for Edmonia’s death record was Mrs Lucy Taylor of PeeWee Valley. Edmonia’s gravestone cannot be read, other than the name “E J Taylor.” Edmonia had married Philip Richard Taylor on 3 April 1960 in Oldham Co; their marriage record shows “Barrick, Miss E J, d/o Chas” married “Taylor, P R” and the marriage date. They lived in Oldham Co in 1860; they were at Spring Dale, Jefferson Co in 1870, but were back in Oldham Co in 1880 and in 1900 living at Brownsboro.

See daughter Susan’s biography; the first four children are shown following Edmonia’s children. Edmonia was apparently the mother who raised all seven-

In 1900 he worked for and lived with the Willis S Davis family (family #83) while his own parents lived close by (family #77) in Fayette Co. When Ezekiel registered for the draft, he could not write, and signed his name with an X while someone else filled in the information. Ezekiel’s name was then spelled Baird. His family used the Baird spelling, although all census records show the name as Beard. He was a coal miner, and he named “Leslie Baird wife” as his nearest relative when he registered for the draft, and they lived at Searles, Tuscaloosa Co.

        Albert Bud Bloodworth [R2c4c5d1], son of Nancy Elizabeth Wallace and Albert Franklin Bloodworth, was born 9 July 1885 in either Sumner Co or Robertson Co TN, and lived with his uncle and aunt John W Wallace [R2c4c5f] and Mattie J Herrod at Nashville in 1900. Albert Bud Bloodworth married Hattie L Talley about 1907 and they lived in Davidson Co. Hattie was born in TN in 1890, daughter of Mrs Jennie Talley. In September 1918 Bud lived at Nashville, and on his WW I draft card, he named his closest relative as “Mrs Addie Bloodworth” at his address on Spring Street in Nashville. In 1920 at Nashville, Mattie was still Bud’s wife, and in their home at 116 Spring Street were four remaining children, none of whom was Addie. Since Bud could not write (he signed the card with an X), then the writer must have misunderstood what Bud said, and wrote “Addie” when he should have written “Hattie.” Their children by 1920 were all born at Nashville, TN-

a.     Jennie Rose Bloodworth, b 1909 (49vwf)

b.     Eula M Bloodworth, b 1912 (49wf)

By September 1918 they had moved to Nashville where he was a street car conductor. Frank was born in Robertson Co on 27 November 1884 and in 1900 when he was age 16, he was hired farm labor for Martin Miller and his wife Eliza J Porter (born in TN in 1826 & 1836).

        Anna May Boone [R2b3a1a4], daughter of John Rowan Boone and Carrie Belle Morris, was born 19 November 1875 at Louisville, KY. She married James Lee Scott on 17 June 1895 at Louisville, his second marriage. He was born at Ballston Spa, Saratoga Co NY on 9 January 1856, son of George Gordon Scott and Lucy P _____. James was a lawyer, as was his father. They were picked up in two 1900 censuses; one was on June 1 at Ballston, and the other on June 2 at Saratoga Springs. So they must have changed residences between those two days, but stayed in Saratoga Co. In 1928 she took an ocean cruise to France, and returned on the SS France on 23 May 1928 at NY Harbor. Her home was still Saratoga, NY then. Anna died at Saratoga Springs, NY on 9 January 1912. She and James had a son-

a.     Gordon Boone Scott, b 6 Nov 1897

James Lee Scott had first married Nathalie Heloise Hall on 27 October 1886 at Grosse Pointe, Wayne Co Michigan. She was born at Detroit on 1 June 1866. They had a son: George Benton Scott, born 1 February 1890 at Ballston. They must have divorced because Nathalie and her son were living at Detroit in 1925 and 1928. In 1930 she moved to Manhattan, NY and in 1933 she lived at Pelham, NY. Her son lived at NY City in 1921. Nathalie and her son took many trips to England in the 1920s and 1930s. (LL,W,S,60, 66qrsuv)


        Beryle Allen Boone [R2c5c2d6], daughter of Belle A Wallis and James S Boone, was born 2 December 1896 in Collin Co TX. She died 4 May 1965 at Abilene, and was buried in Haskell Co. (502uv,460d)

He was born 15 September 1847 in KY, son of Owen Walker and Carlile Stone, and this was his second marriage. They lived at Richmond, Madison Co in 1900, and his profession then was a “capitalist.” In 1910 they lived at Harrods Creek, Jefferson Co and he was then a broker. James died 7 February 1935 in Jefferson Co. Carrie had no children. One of James S Walker’s sons from his first marriage was James Stone Walker Jr, born 1 January 1889 at Richmond. (LL,60,M, 6svd,69u)


        Dortha Belle Boone [R2c5c2d1a], daughter of Sumner Wallace Boone and Sarah Price, was born in 1910 in Haskell Co TX. She probably married in the 1920s. (502w)


        Douglass Mabee Boone [R2b3a1a2a], son of William Pennabaker Boone and Louise West Mabee, was born 22 December 1899 at Louisville, KY.

Douglass married Anne Downing at Asheville, NC on 26 April 1930 and they lived there. She was born 22 July 1901 at Covington, Tipton Co TN. They had no children. In 1931 they took a trip to Europe and returned from Naples, Italy on the ship SS Augustus, arriving at New York City on 14 February 1931. Douglass’ parents also went. Douglass died in January 1981, perhaps at Fort Lauderdale, Broward Co FL since they lived there. Anne died at Fort Lauderdale on 5 April 1980. (LL,M,S, Z,FLd,70w, 73f)


        Edna Boone [R2b3a1a1a], daughter of George Morris Boone and Florence Walker, was born in 1900 at Louisville, Jefferson Co KY. She was first found living with her parents at Harrods Creek, Jefferson Co in the 1910 (census family # 162). Since her parents lived with her mother’s family in 1900 at Louisville, and Edna was not shown in the 1900 census, then she must have been born after the census taker came and went. In 1910 she gave her age as 11, but that was probably an exaggeration to impress the census taker. She was not found after 1910, but by 1920 could have easily been married.

There were two daughters named Edna Boone, and both were born about the same time in Jefferson Co. One was the daughter of George Morris Boone, and the other was Edna Hamilton Boone (see following). Edna H always gave an age to indicate her birth year was 1899 or 1898. In the 1920 census, also in Jefferson Co, the elder Edna lived with her paternal grandmother widow Carrie Boone at Louisville. This time she was called Edna H Boone, age 21. She was also called Edna H Boon, age 1, in the 1900 census when she lived with her maternal grandmother. (LL,60, 6svwf)


        Edna Hamilton Boone [R2b3a1a3b], daughter of Samuel Harney Boone and Katherine Hatzman, was born 18 July 1899 (claimed 1898 for social security records) at Louisville, KY. At Louisville in 1920 she lived with her paternal grandmother in a boarding house. She married John “Jack” Herberman at Louisville about 1924. He was born at Louisville on 8 January 1901, son of Augustus Herberman (Sr) from Hanover, Germany and Lina Ruffra from KY. Edna died 14 June 1975 in Jefferson Co but lived at Hopkinsville, Christian Co then. Jack died 2 February 1974 in Jefferson Co, and also lived at Hopkinsville. They had a son-

1.     John Boone Herberman, b 11 Jul 1926

Jack Herberman’s father came to the US in 1868 when he was a baby and became a citizen in 1876.

See the note following the biography of Edna H’s first cousin Edna Boone. (LL, Z,6vwfd)

        George Morris Boone [R2b3a1a1], son of John Rowan Boone and Carrie Belle Morris, was born 1 March 1871 at Louisville, KY. He married Florence Walker at Louisville in 1895. She was born 28 September 1877 in KY, daughter of Frank Walker and Florence Miller. They lived with her parents for at least the first four years. George was a professional baseball player for about one month in the springtime of 1910, but when that didn’t last, he worked as a secretary & treasurer for a business. In 1910 they lived at Harrods Creek, Jefferson Co (family #162). George died at Louisville on 24 September 1910. They had a daughter-

He married Carrie Belle Morris on 8 June 1870 at Louisville's Galt House (a hotel). She was born 5 November 1850 at Louisville, eldest daughter of George W Morris, a Louisville merchant born in England, and Caroline Ann Wallace from NY. John was a Union soldier for the duration of the Civil War. In 1870 he was a lawyer at Louisville, as was his father. He died on 26 November 1883, and Carrie on 9 September 1947, both at Louisville. In 1900 Carrie lived with her father at Louisville. In 1920 she lived with her granddaughter Edna H Boone, daughter of George, in a rooming house at Louisville.

        John Rowan Boone [R2b3a1a2b], son of William Pennabaker Boone and Louise West Mabee, was born 29 November 1905 at New Rochelle, NY. In 1928 he took a trip to France, and returned on the ship SS Minnesota, arriving at NY Harbor on 16 July 1928. At that time he gave his home as Ashville, NC. He took another trip, but to England, returning at NY Harbor on the ship SS Olympic, arriving on 14 December 1931. On this trip his traveling partner was Amelia Boone, born 26 December 1910 at Louisville, and her address was the same as John’s, at Ashville. Apparently they had married between 1928 and 1931, but in the 1930 census John was a single man still living at home. Perhaps this was a honeymoon trip. John took a third trip in 1935 to Southampton, returning on 21 December 1935, and he was alone; his home address was then Biltmore, NC. John did marry Geraldine Babcock on 1 July 1950 at Princeton, NJ, and died at Princeton in July 1989. They had a son-

Since Frankie’s father was born in 1829 and his mother Mollie was born in 1862, Mollie likely married again and John T (Sr) died. (W,M, TXd,382Nsuvw,178fd)


        Horace Heston Cherry Jr [R2c4a2f6c], daughter of Horace H Cherry and Frankie C Webster, was born 25 September 1915 in Navarro Co TX, grew up in Navarro Co and in Dallas, and lived at Los Angeles, CA in 1961. He died 8 March 1994 (not in CA). (Z,382w,178f)

His obit stated that he was a son of “the late Morris Fox and Dolly M (Patton) Cherry,” yet in the 1930 census the only son living with Morris was Jack’s elder brother Morris Fox Cherry Jr, born in 1922. And in 1930, Morris Fox Cherry Sr’s first wife, Margaret Patton, had no son in her household. Margaret did marry a second time with Les Myers after 1930, and they had a son named William.

        John Keene Cherry [R2c4a5], son of Jane Wilson and Ezekiel Cherry, was born 6 December 1822 in Bedford Co TN. He moved with his mother to Marengo Co AL by 1840, and died 11 June 1840. Although a boy of John’s age was shown in the 1840 Marengo Co census under his mother’s name, that was likely son Samuel; Samuel was alive in 1870 living with his brother Albert in Gonzales Co TX. And so often the census take listed the people in the homes on the date he made his visit, not on 1 June 1840 which was supposed to be the effective date of the census. Hence, John Keene Cherry was probably omitted by the time the census taker came at some date after June 1, since John had already died. (W,SF,356j,368k)


        Johnson Blair Cherry [R2c4a2f3a], son of Francis S Cherry and Mozelle Correll, was born 7 August 1901 at Kerens, Navarro Co TX.

        Marguerite “Maggie” S Cherry [R2c4a2f10], daughter of John Holland Cherry and Helen Theodocia Johnson, was born 14 September 1888 in Navarro Co TX and was a twin of her sister Callie. Marguerite almost always was known as Maggie. She married Mr C D Allard and in 1961 lived at Dawson, Navarro Co. There is a land title record in Navarro Co which named Maggie Allard; it is confusing, but indicates that Maggie inherited title to almost 93 acres (patent #244) in Robertson district from C D Allard, and on 14 February 1972 her son Wayne Allard was trying to sell or change title to this land. C D Allard was Charles Dowe Allard, born at Ladonia, Fannin Co TX on 13 April 1889, son of George Washington Allard and Martha Jane Linton. Charles grew up in Rains Co, two counties south of Fannin Co. He was a station agent for the St Louis & Southwestern Railroad.

They moved back to Navarro Co in 1927. In the 1930 census, at Dawson, Navarro Co, Maggie was found as Margrette Allard, wife of C D Allard. The 1961 obit of Maggie’s brother Horace named Maggie under her married name as “Maggie Allard,” not as Mrs C D Allard, thus indicating that Maggie was already a widow in 1961. Charles had died at Dawson on 1 January 1958 of cancer. Maggie died at Corsicana, Navarro Co on 24 May 1970 of cancer and was buried in Dawson Cemetery with Charles. The informant for her death certificate was her son Wayne. They had seven children, all born in TX; the birth county was probably Coryell for most-

        Mary Jane Cherry [R2c4a7], daughter of Jane Wilson and Ezekiel Cherry, was born 5 October 1827 in Bedford Co TN. She was not shown in the 1830 census, yet an unknown brother of the same age was. Hence, that young boy was probably Mary J, mis-identified by the 1830 census taker.

3.     Ormand Harding, b 20 Dec 1917, died soon after. Information for this birth came from a transcribed record off the Internet, not a picture of the actual record. The transcribed version had the birth date as 20 Dec 1914, not 1917, but since poor handwriting can often confuse a 4 with a 7, and since in these early years it would have been impossible for one of two twins to survive for another month after one was born premature (see Philip Harding), Then the birth date for Ormand must have been 20 Dec 1917, and not 20 Dec 1914. Until someone can see the actual birth record, and confirm that the date is actually 1914, it is here assumed to be 1917. (JY,3b)

        Martha H Davidson [H1a4a], daughter of Minnie Rowan and Daniel Davidson, was born in January 1890 in Daviess Co KY. She was not living with her mother and step-father in 1910, but was alive. She must have married in the late 1900s. (3uv)


        Mary H Davidson [H1a4b], daughter of Minnie Rowan and Daniel Davidson, was born in April 1891 in Daviess Co KY. In 1910 she would have been age 19, but was not living with her mother and step-father, so May must have recently married. (3uv)


        Ruth Davidson [H1a4c], daughter of Minnie Rowan and Daniel Davidson, was born 29 March 1892 in Daviess Co KY (she was age 8 in 1900, 18 in 1910, and 26 in 1920). Ruth married Clarence Willingham about 1913 and they lived at Owensboro. She worked in a tobacco drying plant in 1920. Ruth died of spinal meningitis on 13 June 1920, just west of Owensboro, and was buried in Pettit Cemetery.

3.     Carl L Willingham, b 12 Jul 1917, grew up in Daviess Co and died at Indianapolis, IN on 1 January 1997. (Z,3wf)

Silas Willingham was born in 1865 in KY and died 6 Nov 1930 at Owensboro. He was a son of Frank Willingham and Sarah Cheatham, and was buried at Sorgho just west of Owensboro. Minnie was the middle of five children of Rachael Winstead and probably Thurman Burks, and was born 27 Oct 1862 at Vanover, Daviess Co, and died at Owensboro on 8 Jun 1951. In 1880 Minnie and her youngest sister Lucy and their mother Rachael Winstead lived at Oakford, Daviess Co. In 1870 Minnie and her four siblings lived with their mother at Vanover, but with no father in their home. The children were Rosa, Joseph, Minnie, John, and Lucinda Winstead; Lucinda was age 2, so Rachael’s husband must have died between 1867 and 1870. Minnie’s brother Joseph’s death record (3 Feb 1865 - 4 Feb 1917) stated that his parents were Thurman Burks and Rachael Winstead. A search of Ohio, McLean, and Daviess Counties of 1860 showed the only Burks families in those three counties were in Ohio Co, and none had a Thurman Burks. So apparently Thurman Burks was a Black slave in 1860 (and not named in the census records), and had died soon before 1870. Rachael then reverted to her maiden name. Rachael’s children all used the Winstead family name. Silas Willingham and Minnie were both buried at Sorgho. (M,3ursuvwd)

        Archie R Decker [R2g1f3b2], son of Cora E Munn and Lorenzo Dow Decker, was born 10 January 1881 in Mecosta Co MI, and died at Blanchard Twp, Isabella Co on 8 November 1916. The death record said he was a son of Lorenzo D Cooper and Carrie Munn, was a machinist, and was divorced. Archie was age “35 years, 9 months, 29 days.” If this was accurate, he would have been picked up in the 1880 census (born 10 January 1880). He was actually 34 years when he died, and was born in 1881. In addition, if he were born in January 1880, that would have conflicted with the known birth date of his sister Nora. The Mt Pleasant Times newspaper obit said Archie was born 10 January 1881, as did his gravestone in the Decker Family Cemetery in Isabella Co. (123Ndc,148v)


        Blanche H Decker [R2g1f3b5], daughter of Cora E Munn and Lorenzo Dow Decker, was born in October 1889 in Mecosta Co MI. She was a witness at the marriage of her brother Clyde in Mecosta Co in 1908, and at the time lived at Blanchard, Isabella Co. (122uvm)

Bessie was born 8 December 1887 at Rolland, Isabella Co, daughter of Joseph Reichert and Veronica Sophrona Schroeder (both from Canada). Clyde was a farmer in 1910, but in the 1910s they had moved to Alma, Gratiot Co where he was a grocer. Their three children were born in MI-

a.     L D Decker, b 16 Apr 1912 at Millbrook, Mecosta Co MI and grew up at Alma, Gratiot Co. His full name was no doubt Lorenzo Dow Decker, named after his uncle or grandfather, but he consistently used just the initials L D. He died 11 February 2007 at Alma. (Z,124wf)

He was born at Millbrook, Mecosta Co MI on 22 October 1876, son of J Herbert Childs and M Alice _____. They lived in Isabella Co in 1910. In 1920 they were at Alma, Gratiot Co; Laura’s brother Clyde moved there about the same time. When Lewis registered for the WW I draft in 1918, he named as his nearest relative “Nora Belle Childs” of Blanchard, Isabella Co, but she was not called a Wife. Lewis was a merchant. Lewis’ wife’s name in 1910 and 1920 was clearly Laura B, born in 1880, and they were married soon before 1900. In 1930, at Lansing, MI, Lewis’ wife was Norah, born about 1880 and married in 1898.

In 1900 he lived at Guffey, Owyhee Co ID and was a sheep shearer; he had married in 1899, but his wife wasn’t with him in this boarding house.

They lived at Huston from 1900. When the census taker asks how many children a person has had, and how many were still alive, this question was meant for women. But in George’s case, in 1910, he and Clara both answered differently. George said he had six, with four still alive, and Clara answered four and four. Therefore, we don’t know if George was giving an answer which included his first four children, or all his children is unknown. By 1910, George had eight children and Clara had four. Apparently all of Clara’s were still alive, and George lost two of his original four. Eventually with Clara he had six children, making twelve in all-
