Creating a second webpage for Descendants of William Halley Armistead
Generations 5 thru 6.

Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM HALLEY ARMISTEAD 2(ARMISTEAD1) was born Abt. 1781 in Smith Co., TN, and died in 10 miles from Union MO on the bank of Bourbouse River, Franklin Co MO.
He married PHEOBA C. WALTON, daughter of THOMAS WALTON and AGNES MOSBY (Cousins). She was born Bet. 1791 - 1796 in Smith Co., TN, and died in 10 miles from Union MO on the bank of Bourbouse River Franklin Co MO.

Notes for WILLIAM H. ARMISTEAD:
This first information I received, were typed sheets given to me by Jesse Cooper Thomas, as given to her by her mother, Hattie Adelia Park Cooper, wife of Thomas Richard Cooper. Thomas Richard Cooper was the brother of Nancy Melviney Cooper Birge and they were the children of Eli Bailey (Eal) Cooper and Elizabeth Francis Armistead.
Nancy Melviney Cooper Birge gave to Hattie Adelia Park Cooper in 1933. From additional information on those sheets, it appears that Nancy and Hattie, worked on them together after Nancy gave them to Hattie.

Bertha Cooper Bradford has also provided other sheets of information. I have typed exerts of this information on to the individual sheets of each person mentioned. Please note that information given me shows William A. Armistead.

The two pedigree files below show William H. Armistead, as does the 1850 Missouri Census. Also the spelling of Pheoba Walton, per Nancy Cooper and the two pedigree files show Phoebe C. Walton, the 1850 Census shows Phoebe. Nancy Cooper Birge said both William and Pheoba were born in Tenn. While the two pedigree files say they were born in Virginia.

Sept 1998, I found on the Family Tree Program the following Pedigree which I am also including into the family. Pedigree 1781 Volume 16 shows both William and Pheoba born in Virginia. Source; Kevin R. Gray, Des Plaines, IL. I sent him a letter on 8-31-98. See my family file for copy of this letter. Pedigree 1085 Volume 15. Source; Cathie L. Jarvis, Eureka, MO.

1999, Information I have just received from June Manion, SC. I will incorporate into my files. She sent me a box of sheets hand written front and back with few copies of newspaper articles and pictures. This work was started by her mother Bertha Agnes Armistead, daughter of Rueben Thomas and Delilah Edith Phillipp Armistead, then June got the bug as we all seem too, and she started gathering information. It took me almost a year to put her information in my computer. While all the time emailing her for questions about notes, page numbers missing, names being repeated. It was fun. It kept me busy when I came home from work and kept her busy proofing my work. But, I have found all the census information along with cemetery, death certificates and other things, as I have done with all these families. I prove any and all information given to me as best as I can. Big help for me, is that over the years I purchased all the cemetery books from Four Rivers Genealogical Society, Washington MO., as well as published material. In fact, I have a big library of published materials and books for many of the counties of MO. Sharlee
Please note information that June has sent, only shows 11 children as the previous sources have given me 13 children.

So, I have incorporated all of their work, and with help from Karen Walker and a few others, dug up all the census, marriage records, death certificates, burial information. In doing this, I was able to find family information that neither my great grandmother had nor June Manion. And I am still digging. Karen Walker dug up all the newspaper articles you will see on every line that came out of Franklin Co MO., that start with "This"

William H. Armistead came to Franklin Co., Mo., in the Mid 1830's from Smith Co., Tenn., via St. Louis Co., Mo., per Nancy Melviney Cooper Birge.

The 1840 census shows on this; Armstead, William, 2 males between 5/10 years old, 1 between 20/30 years old, 1 between 50/60 years old. Females; 2 between 10/15 years old, 1 between 20/30 years old and 1 between 50/60 years old.

Per birth records received from Salt Lake, William was born in Cumberland VA., not so, born in TN., per my great grandmother Nancy Cooper Birge, but the 1850 Franklin Co., MO., shows he was born in VA.
1850 Census shows I believe William H., but there are those who believe it is William A.

Notes for PHEOBA C. WALTON:
Phoeba Walton Armistead was carrying George E., when they moved from Tenn., to Missouri. They stayed at Union until he was born, then they settled on a farm about 10 miles from Union Missouri, on the banks of the Bourbouse River. The family graveyard is there near the old home place. (Hattie Cooper wrote this as given to her by Nancy Cooper Birge in 1933).

My Great Grandmother Nancy Cooper Birge said that Phoeba was born in TN. But, June Manion shows that she was born in Tenn in 1791 and her name spelled as Phoebe C. Walton

The 1850 Missouri Census shows Pheoba born in Tenn.
Note: information received from LDS Ancestral files Dec 6 1999 shows Phoebe born 1796 Cumberland, VA.

Nov 11, 2000 received this from Peggy
Here is what I have on the Walton's.
In 1826 Phoebe wife of William H. Armistead, daughter of Thomas G. Walton whose estate was being administered by his son-in-law Edward Glover. Several deeds conveying lands on Puncheon Camp Creek, being part of a 1000 acres survey that Thomas G. Walton formerly lived on, identify the heirs as including; Edward M. Walton, George Walton, Edward Glover and his wife Polley, formerly Polley Walton, William H. Armistead and wife Phoeaby C. Walton, Seth Burton and wife Martha M. Walton, William Nichols and wife Nancy F. Walton (in Marion County, Elinoy (Illinois) in 1826 when they gave Edward M. Walton a power of attorney, Edward Bradley and wife Lockey Walton, and Narysia (Narcissa) Walton.
In 1835 William M. Armistead sold a slave Gabriel to Timothy Walton. At the same time James Walton of Sumner County and Timothy Walton of Smith County conveyed to "Betsy Ann, Martha Jane, Eliza Linton, George Thompson, and William Joseph Armistead heirs of Wm Armistead of the other part, all of Smith County, 110 acres on Snow Creek in Smith "including" the plantation where the said William M. Armstead now lives." Deeds of 1816 in Smith County (Book E, pp 318, 459) identify James, Isaac and Timothy Walton, Arthur S. Hogan and wife Rachel, Nathaniel M. Williams and wife Sarah Jane as heirs of Col. William Walton, deceased and Sarah Walton his widow.

She was 81 years 5 months and 19 days old. She came to Missouri at the age of twelve years. And has been a resident of Franklin County for many years. In 1842, she was married to Robert Armistead. By him she had 13 children, two of whom remain to mourn her loss. Her first husband being dead, she was married to Mr. Albert Frazier in 1872. She had been a faithful member of the Christian Church for about 65 years and just a few days before her death, she sang verses of the son: "The Old Ship of Zion". Such a life does not end with the grave, but is a gentle benediction to all it meets and its influence widens with each year. In such a death there is glory." A. B. Jett, Minister

Sharlee,
I just got a query on the Blackwells. Do you know Janet M. Blackwell, from Beaufort, NC? She asks if Mathew Blackwell is the father of Rev. William M. Blackwell. William’s second wife was Mary B., or Polly, Armistead. If you haven’t already answered Janet, can you tell me if you have any further information on the Blackwells? If not, maybe we can send her some names of Blackwell descendants to contact. Thanks! Glen Blesi (just a note, sent my entire file on Blackwell to Glen) Sept 15, 2006.

Sharlee, attached is the document containing the transcribed Hendrix-Ware bible records. I also have an Excel 2000 Workbook containing the compiled names and dates from the Bible.
Here's the strange turn of events that brought the bible to me. I have worked with a woman named Jane for many years. We've both been into genealogy for a while (and people think we're strange because we find it fun going to cemeteries to try to locate buried tombstones. But I digress...)
More than a decade ago, Jane's brother was tearing down a house in Illinois. In a hollow behind a chimney, he found a pillowcase-wrapped bundle. When he opened it, he found a bible, letters and post cards, and even some hair clippings tied off in ribbon. The names and location in the bible meant nothing to him.
He put the bundle away in his house with the intention of giving it to his sister Jane the genealogy nut the next time he saw her. He thought perhaps she could figure out to whom the bundle should be given.
Finally, this past Thanksgiving he remembered to give it to her. When she got home, she got on the internet to see if she could find any queries on the names. When she saw several "L. Ransom's appear, she nearly freaked out. Our first day back at work after the holiday, she called to see if those were my Hendrix and Ware queries. Of course they were and she was so excited she could barely tell me what she'd received. The next day, she brought me the goods. I couldn't believe it. What are the odds of something like that happening! How did the stuff find its way to a hole behind a chimney in a different state? The package even included some little "hands" cutouts made by a child who drew around his or her hands then used scissors to cut around the outline. I recognize almost all the names and places in the postcards, letters and the bible. There are just a few mysteries. And I haven't found any posts on the internet indicating a name for Wilborn Hendrix's father so the name Jesse Hendrix recorded in the bible may finally help us tie this line to other Hendrix and Hendricks folks. Laura
Now, I will change his name from just William to William Wilborn. Perhaps his name was Wilborn and went by William. Unknown at this time. Sharlee
Other sources are showing his name as William Wilburn Hendrix.

Phebe M. Armistead daughter of Thomas J. Armistead and Emily Ann his wife, was born March 7 1847.
Elizabeth Frances Armistead daughter of Thomas J. Armistead and Emily Ann his wife, was born October 21 1848.
Robert B. Armistead son of Thomas J. Armistead and Emily Ann his wife, was born March (can't read) 1851?
Then Granville O. Armistead son of Thomas J. Armistead and Emily Ann his wife, was born December (I think it's the 9th) 1852.
Then on the back it has marriages:
Thomas J. Armistead and Emily Ann Groom was married October 28 1841.
Thomas J. Armistead and Elizabeth Park was married May 15th, 1855.
On a scrap piece of Bible page it says Robert B. Armistead was killed by the fall of a limb. March 14th 1866 signed by an X.
Just above Robert B. Armistead all that is visible is someone else died June __th 1856 and I can not figure out who this was.
Then another scrap of Bible page has about 3 children of Thomas and Elizabeth births and two others that s not all there.
If I can help you maybe you have something I can use! Phebe Armistead was my husbands great grandmother. Betty

Hi Sharlee
All of us here have been trying to locate that old Armistead Cemetery. We know it is on the Bourbouse River, but we don't know who owns the property now. I am sure it is on the old Armistead land. I doubt if there are any markers that are readable, if there ever were any. I have come to the conclusion that there were only stones. The reason is because no one knows the exact birth or death dates of Thomas J. Sr. and his parents. If there had been at any time some kind of marker with names and dates, I would have thought that someone would have written it down, and someone would have the information. But I could be wrong, the location may have been lost and the markers are only over grown. I have an e-mail address of a Julie, her grandmother is Madge Minks Baker. Karen

Notes for EMILY ANN GROOM:
Per Jesse Cooper Thomas, as told to her by Nancy Cooper Birge Emily was in love with young Tom Armistead and Tom loved Emily, but her parents wanted Emily to marry a man of goodly means, whom she did not love. While Emily was washing clothes for a neighbor family one day, the neighbor man noticed Emily was crying as she worked. "What is wrong?" he asked her, she replied, "my parents want me to marry a man I do not love." "I love Tom Armistead." The neighbor went to Tom and told him, then proceeded in helping the two elope. They had 5 children.
Emily died leaving Tom with 5 small children. Tom grieved so much for his beloved Emily. She was pure and sweet tempered, a thrifty manager and a good homemaker. Toms sisters tried to help but they had their own families to care for also, so they persuaded Tom to seek another wife. Nancy Cooper Birge (1933) lists 5 children.

Per June Manion date of birth 1827, and only lists 3 children. Thomas Jefferson, Phoebe Mosby and Elizabeth Frances.
Per LDS Ancestral Files Emily's name is shown as Emly Ann Groomes. Dec 7 1999 and birth date. Sharlee

I received from the MO index+5118394785+Fat Searches.rootsweb.Com.

George W. Armistead, who lived on his farm at Oak Grove (3 miles west of Stanton) Franklin County, died at his home, Friday evening, May 28 at 7 o'clock, by his family, at the age of 77 years 7 months 10days. 1920.
He was born in the vicinity of his present home, October 18 1842 and spent his boyhood days with his parents until the call of his Country, when on the 21st day of September, 1861, at the age of 19, he answered the call by enlisting in Capt. John McFall's Company I, 26th Regiment Missouri Volunteers; served at the front and was honorably discharged by reason of disability, in camp before Corinth Mississippi on the 3rd day of April 1862 returning to his home.
On Jan 18 1864, he married Miss Martha Jane Brown. To this union eight children were born, of whom five survive, Mrs. Nancy J. Rudolph, Mrs. Phoebe Agnes Bell, Jesse J., William Robert, and Mrs. Julia A. Greenwood of St. Louis. His wife died March 20 1884.

He is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Agnes Nettell, who resides on the adjoining farm and who attended him during his last days with all the tender care and love of a sister. Four sons-in-laws, twelve grandchildren and seventeen great grandchildren remain to mourn his loss.
He had been a farmer all his life and resided on the present home site since 1884 and enjoyed a happy and prosperous life until the illness that caused his death overtook him. He was active in the welfare of his vicinity and contributed to all causes of advancement or charity. He attended the Christian Church when able to do so and was known to all as "Uncle George."

October 17 2003 received e-mail from Donna great great granddaughter of Wm. Edward Gilcrease and Phoebe Priscilla Armistead.
Donna also referenced this, " I do have an original letter from Eli Park to Theodore and Martha (Belle) Gilcrease telling Theodore of his sister's death (Nancy J. Gilcrease Park - Nannie as Eli called her). I have several letter between the two couples.

Stanton Jan 3 1898
Dear Brother and family
Dearest Nannie is dead. She passed away very quietly Sunday Morning at half past two O’clock. She wished time and again for death to come and release her of the suffering. It is with a sorrowing heart Theodore that I pen you those lines yet I feel it my duty to do so. She joined the Church about one month a go and I hope and trust that she was ready when the Master called her.
We buried her at Cave Spring near Uncle Obe's daughter. Theordore I would write more but do not feel able, Trust The Great Master will comfort and protect you all in this sad bereavement.
I close in deepest sympathy
Your Loving Cousin

(Typed exactly the way hand written)Donna
The letters that were exchanged between these couples showed very caring nature on each of their parts. They were very good friends. Nancy had attended church, as she indicated in a prior letter, but as indicated above joined the church shortly before she passed away. Reference is made by either Eli or Nancy in their letters of each of their children. Donna"

This article was in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday, October 25, 1902: "Geo. E. Armistead of Meramec twp, was in Union, Wednesday and reported the recent arrival of two little girls in his township, one at the home of Eli Park and the other at the home of James Armstead."

Please note that the June 15 1900 Meramec Twp Franklin Co., MO Census appears this way; Eli shows that he has been married for 16 years...but No wife is listed...could it be that the date given is incorrect...perhaps she was being cared for somewhere other than the home. It does not say WIDOW. Sharlee

This obituary was in The Sullivan News on Thursday, December 30, 1943: "ELI BAILEY PARK
Eli Bailey Park was born October 22, 1858 near Champion City, Mo., and departed this life December 10, 1943, in the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edith Fugenbutz, of St. Louis, at the age of 85 years 1 month 18 days.

From Donna The letter will be typed exactly as written- all spelling unchanged)
Stanton MO., April (only part of date shown- reference to Mamie and Otto. By the way, family notes indicate they were twins and younger than Hattie but note you do not show this. See what you think after reading this letter and let me know where your source info., came from If you don't mind)

To T. W. Gilcrease from Eli Park
Mr. T. W. Gilcrease
Dear
As today is Sunday and I am all alone or nearly for Nannie and Hattie are gone and Mamie and Otto are asleep I would have a good time to write you. Poor little Otto was quite sick two days ago but he seems to be very well now. He can run everywhere. Each wants to be going all the time. We are having such a find day I hope to make the most of it as it is the first one of the kind for a long time.
Theodore we have just been having real winter right up here in April. Just think of it snowing some Friday last. We have been having some very windy weather for a week or two which did a sight of damage in several ways also heavy ahil and rain storms with it. Well Theodore we haven't planted any corn to speak of yet but are ready when the weather will permit. We had a real fine prospect for fruit until the cold waves came and I fear they have killed most all the peaches. Wheat crops are only tolerable here at present not at all promising. Well Theodore I am trying some of your kind of grass Alfalfa, I believe it will grow here all right. I have about twelve acres in meadow and want to sew more clover yet
Well Theodore I want to go fishing some of those fine mornings come over some evening and be ready for the fun. I see in the paper a fellow caught a fine sea bass out there near you which weighted 50 or over pounds. Theodore I had a letter from cousin George.(George W. Hearst). He is in San Louis Obispo and reports having a fine job at good wages. Mr. James T. Larkin was married to Miss Ida Wear last Tuesday so James had ended his single blessedness like all the rest of us. Though I trust he may never regret the chance. Isabel Gilcrease and Willie were to see us last Saturday and Sunday She said Uncle Tommy was not very well. Angie Farrell is there and very low not thought to rec Well Theodore there is going to be a three weeks meeting at Stanton which commenced yesterday I believe a Christian minister from Henry Co MO Nannie said give her love and wishes to you all and rite to her soon. Hattie and Nannie joines me with kindest wishes to all.
Your Cousin Eli
Nannie said tell you she has fifty head of baby checks.

(Letter from Nancy J. Park - this letter I should have typed first as it is prior to Theodore and Isabelle's marriage)

"George W. Hearst and Susan V. Hendrix md. 21 Dec 1883 San Luis Obispo Co., CA. As I could not locate information on George and Susan, but they were referenced in one of my great grandmother's letters in SLO area, I contacted a genealogist in the area and she provided the marriage information for me. I had found the two of them plus their daughter Mable V. in the 1900 and 1910 census but could not find no further information on them. Martha was interested in the Apperson/Hearst relationship of my great grandmother and wanted to research more. That was Feb 2003, but I never heard further from her, even after e-mailing her a couple of times to see how her research was going.

"Charlotte Pearly's maiden name was Green. She was the daughter of Thomas Green and Alcy Hays. Alcy Hays married 2nd husband 1874, John Bates of Franklin Co. So Bates was Charlotte's step-father. Charlotte 1st married Ralph Vaughn 1887. Thank you for your information on Charlotte's 2nd husband, Columbus Hendrix/Hendricks.

I went searching to see if Elinore had a web site, she did and that is where I got the rest of the information on John Bates, Thomas Green, Alcey Hayes. Sharlee

This article appeared in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday, April 5, 1912. "Mrs. Thomas Armistead called on her daughter, Mrs. Laubinger, Monday."

Death of Mrs. Sarah Armistead.
Mrs. Sarah Armistead departed this life, April 30, 1926 at her home near Evergreen Church after a long illness of pneumonia and flu. At the time of her death she had reached the age of 72 years 2 months and 21 days. She leaves to mourn her loss seven children, two daughters and five sons; Lafe, Vester, George, Thomas Richard, Mrs. William Lawrence and Mrs. Jess Laubinger. 47 grandchildren, two brothers, two sister and many other relative and friends. the remains were tenderly laid to rest in the Evergreen Cemetery, Saturday at 2 o'clock.
The golden gates were open, a gentle voice said come, and with farewell words unspoken she calmly entered home. God has called her to a better world, but, oh, the ace and pain will never leave our breaking hearts until we meet again. A happy home we all enjoyed. How sweet the memories still. But death has left a vacant chair this world can never fill. It was very hard to part with you. You did your part and did it well; But God knew what was best to do, so he took you where the angels dwell.
A loving niece, Rose C. Bandy.

Per June Manion, When I knew them they lived in Sullivan Missouri near my grand parents Delila Edith nee Phillipp and Thomas Reuben Armistead. My grand mother and I walked to their home to visit.

This article was in the Sullivan News on Thursday, March 9 1939: "C. L. Armistead for Reelection
C. Lafe Armistead is this week making formal announcement for the office of Marshal of the City of Sullivan.
The announcement will be found under the Candidate Announcement heading in this issue of The Sullivan News.
Mr. Armistead is running for reelection. He has served the city as peace officer successfully for several years, even acting on appointment before he was elected by the voters. Because of the difficulty of securing good service at night, Mr. Armistead took over the night shift and left the day work for special appointment.
No more sincere or honest man ever served the people in any capacity than Lafe, and his efforts will no doubt be appreciated by a large segment of the voters.
He will not be able to make a very thorough canvas of the town as Mrs. Armistead has been bedridden for a year and he is not as free to see the voters as he would like to be."

This announcement was in The Sullivan News on Thursday, March 9, 1939:
"The Sullivan News is authorized to announce the candidacy of C. Lafe Armistead for the office of Marshal of the City of Sullivan, subject to the will of the voters at the City election April 4, 1939." "Also running for Marshal was Charles Armistead, James W. Davis, Bert Steen."

This obituary was in The Sullivan News on Thursday December 8 1949, Sullivan, Franklin County Missouri:
"Word was just received at press time of the death of C. Lafe Armistead. He died of pneumonia at 1:15 P.M. today (Thursday, December 8, 1949) at his home in Sullivan. Mr. Armistead was 72 years of age. Funeral arrangements have not been made but burial will be at Evergreen Cemetery."

21. ELIZABETH FRANCIS ARMISTEAD 4(THOMAS JEFFERSON3, WILLIAM H.2, ARMISTEAD1) was born 09 October 1848 in Franklin Co, MO, and died 31 October 1884 in Near Sullivan but in the country, Franklin Co., MO.
She married ELI BAILEY (EAL) COOPER 20 February 1868 in Franklin Co., MO, son of GEORGE COOPER and SERENIA PARK. He was born 14 October 1848 in Franklin Co., MO, and died 12 February 1924 in Missouri Baptist Sanitarium St. Louis City MO.

Notes for ELIZABETH FRANCIS ARMISTEAD:
Per Nancy Melviney Cooper Birge (these are her parents and my great great grandparents, Sharlee) and Jesse Cooper Thomas as well.
Elizabeth died before her 2nd set of twins were born. She was the youngest daughter of Thomas and Emily Armistead.
Thomas Richard was only slightly over 2 years old when their mother died Oct 31, 1884. She called her 1st son Jesse to her before she died and asked him to be a good example to his younger brothers. She asked him to promise that he would never drink intoxicants nor use tobacco and to especially watch over her baby little Richard. She hated to leave her family.
Nancy was only 16 years old when the responsibility of keeping house, cooking and washing for this big family fell upon her young shoulders. Those were the days when they cooked over a fireplaces. Or if financially able they had a good wood cook stove. You had to have the right kind of wood and one really had to know how to tend the fire to have well cooked food. Jesse was only 10 years old and George 8, the twins 6 and Bill 4 and baby Dick still in diapers. Nancy worked hard and Jesse was good help to her. George too. And John and Charley could help carry wood and such. Jesse kept his promise faithfully all of his long productive honorable live. When ever his bothers needed help even as grownups they knew their brother Jesse would help. I can remember so well when Uncle Jesse and Aunt Dora moved to the McAllister place at Flat Rock. We were so happy to have them for neighbors. My papa Richard would have acute indigestion once in awhile. Especially when under a lot of stress. I recall one night in particular, when it seemed like he would die he was so sick. Mama ask, Richard? what do you want me to do? It took hour for a doctor to come. Papa said, "send for Jess. He came. It helped papa.

Per letter I received from Bertha Cooper Bradford Sept. 23 1996. My dad bought and paid for his tomb stone. My grandma died in Franklin County, near Sullivan, but in the country. She was buried in a field the corner of which was used for a cemetery (small). My baby brother Eli one day old was buried there also.

Notes for ELI BAILEY (EAL) COOPER:
When Eli Cooper and Elizabeth were married he only had a $5. gold piece and a broad ax with which to build a home for his bride. What courage this young couple had? He built a log house as many did in those days. They both worked hard. She was well bread and taught her children good manners. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" and even though she died young this was lived out in their lives to the very last one. Praise God! for our Christian Grandmother. It was hard right after the Civil War. Eal was an expert woodsman, he could use his left arm as well as his right. A real talent when hacking ties. His son John inherited this ability also. It was said that when John Cooper's load of ties went to market, they paid top price not even checking them because he was the best tie-hacker in the country and absolutely trustworthy. We were justly proud of him! Eal was a strong swimmer, a good hunter which helped to keep their family fed. He ran a saloon at Bourbon, MO in Franklin County. His wife, Elizabeth was only 36 years old when she died from childbirth complications when twins were about to be born. It was 1884 and what a struggle that pioneer family had without a mother to guide the home. Their little brother Richard, 2 years old cried for his "Ma." Aunt Nancy recalled times when they sometimes all ate out of one crock of milk and bread as was the custom in Jesus day, all sitting around the table together sharing whatever they had.
Later Eal married again, this time to Nancy (Bandy) Brown. They had no children. Eal was a founder of the Cooper settlement at Flat Rock Missouri. His children grew up in Franklin County Missouri.
But later he and they moved to the Thomasville area; Summersville; Birch Tree; Mountain View and Eminence areas. Nancy died in MT. View; Jesse and Richard in Flat Rock where he, Nancy, John and their father was laid to rest. Jesse and George were buried in the Summersville Cemetery, Charley in the Corinth Cemetery, while Bill is buried in Eminence Missouri. When the Doctor in St. Louis Missouri removed the cancer on Eal's ear they had to take off his whole ear then decided to remove a gland attached to his jugular vein. It was this that broke loose on his way home from St. Louis. He died from loss of blood. He was an industrious, honest and frugal old man, a true friend, good for his work and a worthy citizen, healthy and jolly. Per Bertha Cooper Smotherman Bradford (1996)

Per Stan Eddington Nov 24 1998 Brighton, IL.
"According to my grandfather Clifton William Cooper, his great grandfather was burned out by Bushwackers during the Civil War. This was a problem in Franklin Co., MO. When they came, Eli Bailey Cooper would race their horses into caves to hide them. On one of these occasions when he returned, the house was burned and his parents were either killed or missing".

Eli Cooper founded the Cooper settlement at Flat Rock Missouri.

Notes for MARY JOSEPHINE ARMISTEAD:
Per June Manion; Great Aunt Mary was very small and extremely hump shouldered. Lived with her mother and father on the "Old Armistead Home Place." Upon her death Leonard Myatt became owner. The log home burned down later. He remarried Tillie last name unknown, she died in ILL.
She lived with her parents - taking care of them on the old Armistead Home Place, where the Evergreen Church and Cemetery is today, until she died, one year before her father, George Edward Armistead. Aunt Minnie took care of Sarah Jane Gravatt Armistead in St. Louis when George Edward Armistead was put into a nursing home when he had hardening of the arteries and he became senile.

Lynn or Leonard Myatt worked the farm and upon Mary's death and George Edward's death, he got the farm. He later married and lived there until the original log home burnt down.

Sylvester Leander Fowler was the son of George Fowler and Sarah Adams; half sister to James Adams who married Agnes Armistead.

As per April 20 1910 Census Family#51, Sylvest is not listed, in fact, Martha is shown as a WIDOW.

Notes for DORA ALICE BURTON:
Dora made quilts, Olive Armistead Lanius, remembers helping her sewing them.

This obituary was in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday, January 13, 1939:
"Mrs. Dora Alice Armistead --- Mrs. Dora Alice Armistead, was born at Rolla, Missouri, Sept. 17, 1875 and died at Stanton, Missouri, Tuesday, January 3, 1939. she was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Burton of Rolla, MO. On July 3, 1928, she was married to James Armistead at Union, MO.
Besides her husband, she leaves three children, Mrs. Mary Day of Rolla, Mrs. Lena Singer of Jefferson City and Charles Lee of St. Clair, three brothers, Walter Burton of Rolla, Sam Burton of Golden City, Mo., and Henry Burton of Fulton; one half-sister, Mrs. Ella Malier of Clinton. Funeral services were conducted at the Stanton Church by Mrs. Emma Miller, Pastor of the Pentecostal Church on Wednesday at eleven o'clock. Interment was in the Burton Cemetery at Rolla. William Binsbacher, Carl Randleman, Thomas Armistead, Clarence Binsbacher, Thomas Armistead, Jr., and Dewey Binsbacher were pallbearers."

Note, just so everyone will know how these Pallbearers are related, complied by Sharlee Carl Randleman is the grandson of Henry Randleman and Martha M. Minks. Martha M. Minks is daughter of Peter Minks and Anna Burton. Clarence Binsbacher is the husband of Blanche Randleman also granddaughter of Henry Randleman and Martha M. Minks. Dewey Binsbacher is a brother to Clarence and I believe William. Their brother Chester not listed as a pallbearer is married to Maude M. Armistead daughter of Thomas Armistead and sister to Thomas Armistead Jr. Thomas Armistead Sr., and James "Jimmie" Marion Armistead were half brothers. Anna Burton Minks is sister to William Burton, father of Charles Burton.

To this day, I still believe this Burton line (if you go to my main web page, you will see this BURTON family has it own website) which came out of Kentucky, then to Indiana, then to Missouri is different than the Seth Burton family and they came from Virginia to Tennessee to MO. Sharlee


Sept 22 2002 received this e-mail from Karen Walker
Hi Sharlee, Was scanning through Ancestry.com and say you were interested in the Burton family: my great-grandfather, James Marion Armistead married Dora Alice Burton, daughter of Charles Burton of Phelps County Missouri.

Notes for NANCY A. (NANNIE) ARMISTEAD:
Nancy was brown headed and brown eyed. They say, "She was a beauty!" Per Nancy Cooper Birge.
Per June Manion, She had beautiful red hair and brown eyes. During her change in life and after the death of her baby, she became irrational. She thought she was pregnant at different times. Died in this state of mine.

This article appeared in The Sullivan News on Thursday, March 18, 1920: "STANTON STORIES Mrs. Nannie Erxleben is visiting her brothers, James and Richard Armistead."

Per the Bible pages given my by Betty Brown April 5 2002
These pages are torn and very blackened
It shows, daughter of Thos J. Armistead and Elizabeth his wife was born March 7th appears to say 1864...this is listed just before Richard born 1867.

This article appeared in The Sullivan News on Thursday, January 21 1932: Stanton Stories Mrs. Nancy Erxleben is spending a few days with Mr. and Mrs. Richard Armistead."

"I have never been able to find a reference in the census, or anywhere else that had Nancy and her husband having more than three boys. Frederick was the oldest, Columbus next and Elmer died young. No mention of a Martin or Lennard. She married Henry West in April 1906 in St. Louis MO. They latter divorced, they had no children. Marriage information from St. Louis marriage records City Hall.
Nancy went back to the Erxleben name.

Notes for WILLIAM F. ERXLEBEN:
Per June Manion, could William and Charles Erxleben who married Nancy E. Fowler, daughter of Martha A. Armistead Fowler, be brothers?
All that we know about William F. Erxleben, is from the marriage license. That on October 1889, he was over 21 years of age. Nothing else has been found.

She had three boys by Wm. F. Erxleben: Frederick William Erxleben, Columbus Erxleben and Elmer Erxleben. Elmer was born in Jul 1899, died young before 1910 (not shown on 1910 census (Sharlee)). Fred & Columbus moved to Omaha, Nebraska and died there years later; Fred in 1969 and Columbus in 1974. Fred has descendants, but Columbus never married."

April 26, 2005 from Karen Walker;
Sharlee, I'll try to send you the file I have on this branch of the Erxleben's. She had a woman who was doing some research for a friend contact her, telling her that Wm. F. was listed in the St. Louis MO., Census in 1910 living with his sisters' family. He died in Dec 1910 & there is a William F. Erxleben buried in Bethany Cemetery in St. Louis County MO., who died in Dec 1910. I think it could be Nancy's husband, but she must have divorced him, since I know she married Henry West in April 1906 in St. Louis. I found those records myself so I know it is her. (this is Karen speaking) I wish I could find the divorce records. I've never tried to find divorce records, have you Sharlee? I have not been to Bethany Cemetery, it is up North, I live in South County. Someone told me it was in a bad neighborhood and not to go alone. I have relatives buried there from my dad's side of the family so I have several people to find. Karen

His eyes fell on a quart bottle of whiskey which the doctor had left for treatment for Fred. After a short struggle, Columbus had surrounded over a pint of the contents, but at that stage he himself was compelled to surrender. His mother found him nearly gone and summoned Dr. J. L.

Notes for THEODORE WILLIAMETTE GILCREASE:
Received e-mail October 17 2003 from Donna
"I have see your submission a number of times and have intended to e-mail you, but as I am working a number of other trees have not done so. My great grandfather was Theodore Williamette Gilcrease, the s/o Wm. Edward Gilcrease and Phoebe Priscilla Armistead.
Theodore married my great grandmother Martha Isabelle Apperson d/o Francis A. Apperson and Mary Ann McCreary.
I have a number of original letters written between Nancy J. Gilcrease Park and Eli Park to Theodore and George W. Hearst. As it is late, I will not go into detail about the letters at this time.
The information I have on the Gilcrease family came from my grandmother Golda Gilcrease Hengst. Like her mother before her (Martha), my grandmother loved her family and friends dearly and kept letters and had excellent recall of her family. She had a wonderful memory and could recall information later in her life that was quite remarkable. She preserved/took many photographs over the years with dates and names of the reverse of them. She lived to be 100 and was quite sharp until she had a stroke a few months before her death. As Martha was related to Phoebe Apperson Hearst mother of Wm. Randolph Hearst, my grandmother knew and was very fond of Phoebe who funded her education to university of CA. Berkeley."
Donna, goes from where listing a family chart, of which I will now add to my files person by person. Sharlee
Donna goes on to say, " I do have an original letter from Eli Park to Theodore and Martha (Belle) Gilcrease telling Theodore of his sister's death (Nancy J. Gilcrease Park - Nannie as Eli called Her).
I have several letters between the two couples.

"Stanton Jan 3 1898

Dearest Nannie is dead. She passed away very quietly Sunday Morning at half past two O’clock. She wished time and again for death to come and release her the suffering. It is with a sorrowing heart Theodore that I pen you those lines yet I feel it my duty to do so. She joined the Church about one month a go and I hope and trust that she was ready when the Master called her.
We buried her at Cave Spring near Uncle Obe's daughter. Theodore I would write more but do not feel able. Trust The Great Master will comfort and protect you all in this sad bereavement. I close in deepest sympathy, Your Loving Cousin

Notes for WILLIAM ASBERRY "BERRY'" GILCREASE:
Per Donna Oct 22 2003
They never had any children. She was a career Surgical Nurse and he was a cotton raiser (large farm) but his biggest joy was traveling throughout the world. He was a big game hunter and amassed a very large collection of trophy game. Most of his trophies were donated to a Museum at University of CA, Fresno, by my second cousin. If you go to google.com and input "Berry Gilcrease" there are a couple of items on Berry. He also took many, many rolls of movie photography all of his trips. It was always a joy to be able to watch his films of his many trips/travels. We did not see them often as he traveled so much of his adult years. He had a temperature controlled vault built in his home to hold his films. Also, if you input "Jean Gilcrease" under lawmakers come to order there is a short time about Gene. The newspaper spelled her name wrong.

Stanton MO April (only part of date shown- reference to Mamie and Otto. By the way, family notes indicate they were twins and younger than Hattie but note you do not show this. See what you think after reading this letter and let me know where your source info., came from If you don't mind)

To T. W. Gilcrease from Eli Park
Mr. T. W. Gilcrease
Dear
As today is Sunday and I am all alone or nearly for Nannie and Hattie are gone and Mamie and Otto are asleep I would have a good time to write you. Poor little Otto was quite sick two days ago but he seems to be very well now. He can run everywhere. Each wants to be going all the time. We are having such a find day I hope to make the most of it as it is the first one of the kind for a long time.
Theodore we have just been having real winter right up here in April. Just think of it snowing some Friday last. We have been having some very windy weather for a week or two which did a sight of damage in several ways also heavy hail and rain storms with it. Well Theodore we haven't planted any corn to speak of yet but are ready when the weather will permit. We had a real fine prospect for fruit until the cold waves came and I fear they have killed most all the peaches. Wheat crops are only tolerable here at present not at all promising. Well Theodore I am trying some of your kin of grass Alfalfa I believe it will grow here at right. I have about twelve acres in meadow and want to sew more clover yet
Well Theodore I want to go fishing some of those fine mornings come over some evening and be ready for the fun. I see in the paper a fellow caught a fine sea bass out there near you which weighted 50 or over pounds. Theodore I had a letter from cousin George. (George W. Hearst). He is in San Louis Obispo and reports having a fine job at good wages.
Mr. James T. Larkin was married to Miss Ida Wear last Tuesday so James had ended his single blessedness like all the rest of us. Though I trust he may never regret the chance. Isabel Gilcrease and Willie were to see us last Saturday and Sunday She said Uncle Tommy was not very well. Angie Farrell is there and very low not thought to rec Well Theodore there is going to be a three weeks meeting at Stanton which commenced yesterday I believe a Christian minister from Henry Co MO Nannie said give her love and wishes to you all and rite to her soon. Hattie and Nannie joines me with kindest wishes to all. Your Cousin Eli
Nannie said tell you she has fifty head of baby checks.

(Letter from Nancy J. Park - this letter I should have typed first as it is prior to Theodore and Isabelle's marriage)

This article was in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday, October 25, 1902: "Geo. E. Armistead of Meramec Township, was in Union, Wednesday and reported the recent arrival of two little girls in his township, one at the home of Eli Park and the other at the home of James Armstead."

Please note that the June 15 1900 Meramec Twp Franklin Co., MO Census appears this way; Eli shows that he has been married for 16 years..but No wife is listed..could it be that the date given is incorrect..perhaps she was being cared for somewhere other than the home. It does not say WIDOW. Sharlee

32. WILLIAM R. SEIGAL 4 ARMISTEAD (GEORGE E.3, WILLIAM H.2, ARMISTEAD1) was born March 1863 in Sullivan Franklin Co., MO, and died 03 May 1907 in Sullivan, Franklin Co., MO. He married ELIZA LOUISA ANDERSON 26 January 1887 in Sullivan, Franklin Co., MO, daughter of BENJAMIN ANDERSON and AMANDA RICHARDSON. She was born 16 March 1869 in Sullivan, Franklin Co., MO, and died 03 September 1918 in St. Louis, St. Louis Co., MO.

Notes for WILLIAM R. SEIGAL ARMISTEAD:
Name has also been shown as William R. Siegal Armistead

William R. Siegal Armistead was kidnapped by the Union Bank robbers after they killed the Pinkerton agent Frank Rudolph's, Wm. Rudolph's step-father, house outside of Stanton, Missouri.

This article was in The Franklin County Union, Missouri on Friday, January 30, 1903:
"Lewis was shot in the left temple supposedly by Tichenor, the ball did not enter the skull but cut a small artery from which the blood flowed profusely. After dressing the wound the two men went to the home of Siegal Armstead who lives across the Bourboise less than a half mile distance and tried to buy his team. Siegal Armstead is a relative of Wm. Rudolph but he refused to sell to Rudolph; then told Armistead to saddle his horses and take them to Alex Lawrence's and told him further that they would kill him unless he did. Lewis mounted one horse, and Armstead at the direction of Rudolph got on the other and then Rudolph got on behind Armstead, and the three went to Alex Lawrence's, over two miles distant, as rapidly as possible. Siegel Armstead was probably as badly scared as any man ever was. Rudolph had told him that he had killed a detective, and both Lewis and Rudolph were both heavily armed with revolvers and one carried a Winchester rifle and the other a double-barreled shotgun. Armistead was not only in mortal fear of his companions but was expecting every minute to have the officer’s fire on them. Perhaps our readers can imagine his feelings. When they arrived at Lawrence's Armstead and Lawrence were sent with a lot of money to the home of his father-in-law, I. E. Woodcock, to buy two horses from him. Woodcock and his son rode to Stanton as rapidly as they could to tell where the two men were keeping themselves. We understand he told a man who failed to tell Bruch and his party were the men were keeping themselves. Had he done so, things might have been different."

This obituary was in the Sullivan Sentinell on Friday, May 10, 1907:
"Mr. Sig. Armistead died suddenly of heart trouble Friday morning, and was buried Sunday. His death was a shock to all who knew him; he was one of our respected citizens. He leaves a wife and several children."

1902 Union bank robbery story. The Missouri Kid and Collins alias Black Frank, blew up the vault of the Union Bank in the early morning hours of Dec 27 1902. They escaped with $115,000. by hopping a freight to Stanton where they killed Pinkerton agent Charlie Schumacher in a shoot out. The two outlaws fled to Hartford, Conn., where they were captured by local police and Pinkerton agents. The two were then returned to Union but transferred to a St. Louis prison for safekeeping. From that prison, the Missouri Kid escaped on July 6 1903. It also said that they held up the hanging so that all that the Sheriff had given tickets to see the hanging could arrive.

This appeared in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday February 27 1903: "The Boy, William Rudolph, however has always borne a bad name from his earliest boyhood and nothing was considered too mean for him to do."

William had many aliases: AKA WILLIAM ARMISTEAD, THE MISSOURI KID, MISSOURI BILLY and WILLIAM ANDERSON.
THE 1902 UNION BANK ROBBERY STORY: The "Missouri Kid" alias William Rudolph and George Collins, alias Fred Lewis or "Black Frank", blew up the vault of the Union Bank in the early morning hours of December 27, 1902. They escaped with $115,000 (about $15,000 in cash and the rest in securities) by hopping a freight to Stanton. They killed the Pinkerton Agent, Charlie Schumacher, in a shoot out a month later in January 1903. The two outlaws fled to Hartford, Conn., where they were captured in February 1903, by local police and Pinkerton Agents. The two were then returned to Union but transferred to a St. Louis prison for safekeeping. From that prison, The Missouri Kid, escaped on July 6 1903. It also said that they held up the hanging of Collins, so that all the Sheriff's who had been given tickets to see the hanging could arrive. Rudolph was hung on May 8 1905 after a year of stays and respites by the Gov. for Rudolph's lawyers to change his sentence to life in prison.

This article appeared in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday May 12 1905: "Wm. Rudolph or Wm. Anderson, was born on Spring Creek, about twelve miles southeast of Union, January 21, 1883 and lived in this county until he was sixteen years old. He at one time lived with his parents in a small house just west of Jeffriesburg. When about sixteen years of age he was accused of assisting some older persons in torturing and old man by the name of J. S. Schwartz near Stanton. Whether he was guilty of this crime or not, he fled the county and the general public knew nothing of his whereabouts until after the Union Bank robbery. Although many supposed he was committing crimes in different parts of the country during his four years absence, but of these years nothing much is known. The crime of which Wm. Rudolp was hanged on May 8, 1905, and Geo. Collins, March 26, 1904, and the events connected there to, are too familiar to need much mention here. Rudolph and Collins burglarized the Bank of Union, Union Mo., during the night of December 26, 1902, and secured nearly $15,000 in money. Rudolph blew the bank with nitroglycerine while Collins stayed outside and terrorized by firing revolvers, all who were awakened by the explosions in the bank. Schumacher, a Pinkerton detective, who thought he had discovered the bank robbers at the home of Frank Rudolph, about ten miles southwest of Union was killed by Rudolph and Collins, while he Schumacher, Louis Vedder, Emanuel Cromer, and B. R. Tichenor were trying to arrest them. This was January 24, 1903, less than one month after the bank had been burglarized. Rudolph and Collins escaped after killing Schumacher, but they made a mistake in killing one of Pinkerton men for that powerful agency traced the two murderers across the continent and captured them both in Hartford Conn., Collins' old home, the latter part of February 1903 and were brought back to Union and after a preliminary hearing were taken to St. Louis for safekeeping.
Rudolph made a sensational escape from the St. Louis jail in the afternoon of July 6 1903 by knocking out a skylight in the roof and jumped twenty five feet to the ground. He disappeared completely for several months, but in February 1904 he was captured near Paola, Kansas for attempting to rob a bank in that state. He was sentenced to the penitentiary in Kansas. His picture was sent to the Pinkerton and was recognized by one of their men in the New York office. The Kansas officials were prevailed upon to give him up and he was brought back to the St. Louis jail. He was tried and convicted of killing Schumacher and was sentenced to be hung May 13, 1904, but his case was appealed to the State Supreme Court which affirmed the decision of the lower court and he was sentenced to hang March 17 1905. He was respited by Gov. Folk to April 17, and was again respited to May 8, 1905, the day he was executed. The respites were granted by Gov. Folk to give his lawyers further chances before the courts."

Notes for ESTHER L. RUDOLPH:
In her sister's obituary it says Nellie is a "sister", but it does not mention Esther's name specifically. Since there were no other siblings, it is possible that Esther was still alive in 1975 when her sister, Nellie died. She may have gotten a divorce or her husband died and she remarried because I have been unable to find her in Social Security Death Benefits under Esther LaGree.

Per June Manion; marriage records page G135 shows Ida M. Byrd and Ida M. Sorrello, but she put her name down as Ida Ann Byrd. My great grandmother information shows her name was Ida Byrd Sorrello.

June goes on to write; Marriage records in the Franklin County Court House in Missouri states her name was Ida M. Sorrello, I (June Manion) believe her maiden name was Byrd, 1st marriage Sorrello and 2nd marriage Armistead. I have heard the family say "Jessy married the Byrd girl." Also have heard her called Ida Mae. Question: could she be related to 2nd wife of George W. Armistead Frances Elizabeth (nee Byrd) Armistead.
Ida also married JAMES M. WEST, son of Luke A. West and Nancy Ann Cooper between 1907-1908.

Hi Sharlee
Here are the dates for Norman Andersen. Born: 17 Dec 1911 Missouri; Died 24 Jun 1991 St. Louis, Missouri Buried: 27 Jun 1991 Sunset Burial Park Cemetery St. Louis County Missouri
This is the cemetery next to my house when I was a kid. We played in it all the time, riding bikes and going to the duck pond they have. I never knew I had so many relatives buried in there. My brother and my dad's parents are there; as well as Armistead relations on my mom's side, and Hacker relations on my dad's side.
As far as Norman Andersen & Gladys Parks (she is also buried there); they had four children: 1. Joyce, 2. Farrell, 3. Robert, 4. James, and 5. Norma.
Norma was born 22 Apr 1935 Missouri; died Apr 1979 St. Louis, Missouri. Norma's married name was Norma Watson, she married William Watson. She was also married to a man named Kimberling. I don't know where she is buried. I did not look up her obituary. All of them are on SSDI. Joyce married Marvin Seibert, Farrell married Marcia, Robert married Sharin. Don't have maiden names, and there was no spouse listed for James. Karen

Notes for SYLVESTER "VESTER" COOPER MEYERS:
Vester registered for the first draft in 1917 from Pacific Missouri per June Manion also known as Jester, could this be short for Sylvester? The answer is yes, as per the Obit of Jake A Meyers Cooper, his brother by Donna Carroll Fryer Sept 29 2000

Just a note here about the Cooper name that appears in this family. Sylvester’s father was a Meyers, but raised by a Cooper family. I think it was the Isaac Cooper family. Still have been unable to prove if the Isaac Cooper family was related to my Cooper family. But, some of Don Meyers children as well as himself went by the Cooper name. Sharlee

October 17 2003 received e-mail from Donna, great great granddaughter of Wm. Edward Gilcrease and Phoebe Priscilla Armistead. Donna also referenced this, "I do have an original letter from Eli Park to Theodore and Martha (Belle) Gilcrease telling Theodore of his sister's death (Nancy J. Gilcrease Park - Nannie as Eli called her).
I have several letters between the two couples.

Stanton Jan 3 1898
Dear Brother and family
Dearest Nannie is dead. She passed away very quietly Sunday Morning at half past two O’clock. She wished time and again for death to come and release her of the suffering. It is with a sorrowing heart Theodore that I pen you those lines yet I feel it my duty to do so. She joined the Church about one month a go and I hope and trust that she was ready when the Master called her.
We buried her at Cave Spring near Uncle Obe's daughter. Theordore I would write more but do not feel able Trust the The Great Master will comfort and protect you all in this sad bereavement. I close in deepest sympathy
Your Loving Cousin
(Typed exactly the way hand written)Donna
The letters that were exchanged between these couples showed very caring nature on each of their parts. They were very good friends. Nancy had attended church, as she indicated in a prior letter, but as indicated above joined the church shortly before she passed away. Reference is made by either Eli or Nancy in their letters of each of their children. Donna"

This article was in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday, October 25, 1902: "Geo. E. Armistead of Meramec Township, was in Union, Wednesday and reported the recent arrival of two little girls in his township, one at the home of Eli Park and the other at the home of James Armstead."

Please note that the June 15 1900 Meramec Twp Franklin Co., MO Census appears this way; Eli shows that he has been married for 16 years.... but No wife is listed......could it be that the date given is incorrect...perhaps she was being cared for somewhere other than the home. It does not say WIDOW. Sharlee

This obituary was in The Sullivan News on Thursday, December 30, 1943: "ELI BAILEY PARK

85. NANCY MELVINEY5 COOPER (ELIZABETH FRANCIS4 ARMISTEAD, THOMAS JEFFERSON3, WILLIAM H.2, ARMISTEAD1) was born 09 December 1868 in Tibble, Franklin Co., MO, and died 26 November 1958 in Summersville, Texas Co., MO. She married WILLIAM LANKFORD BIRGE 26 September 1888 in Franklin Co., MO, son of CHARLES LANKFORD BIRGE and SARAH ELIZABETH MINKS. He was born 18 October 1868 in Franklin City, Franklin Co., MO, and died 03 January 1934 in Summersville, Texas Co., MO. (These are my great grandparents) Sharlee

Notes for NANCY MELVINEY COOPER:
Per Jessie Cooper Thomas, this also included THE WORK OF Nancy Cooper Birge 1932 and 1933.
Nancy Melviney Cooper Birge born Dec 9 1868. She died Nov 26 1958 at Mountain View Missouri. She is buried in the Flat Rock Cemetery, Flat Rock Missouri.
My papa, Richard Cooper, loved his only living sister very much. She had been the only mother he could remember. It was Nancy who fed him when his mother died. Who slept with him to keep him warm and so that he would not be afraid of the dark. I remember him missing her so much when they moved to Idaho. And how happy we were when they moved back to Missouri.
I do not have the date but Uncle Bill had a stroke which left him an invalid for long time. Like the good wife she had always been, she cared for him tenderly and faithfully until he died in January 3 1934. In October 1935 my mother Hattie Cooper and my sister Daphne moved onto the Russell Parks farm near Summersville Missouri where they lived until Russell sold the farm to Hugh Stoops and his son Sylvan Stoops in the fall of 1946.
Aunt Nancy lived with mamma and Daphne for some 9 or 10 months of that time. Mamma had her good Jersey cow, Buttercup, a few chickens, a sow, and 2 dogs. Aunt Mamie Shuler had left her beautiful white poodle "Doo Doo." They already had one dog of their own. Cousin Elmer moved them. All of papas people loved our mother and their ONLY Aunt Nancy and were very good and helpful when ever they would let anyone help. Both widows, were hard workers all of their lives. So they wanted to do everything for themselves as long as they could. I feel sure this added to their lives, too.
October 26, 1996 as told to me by Bertha Cooper Bradford I don't know how they met, but I know she told me that grandpa Eli was against her seeing him so she told me they wrote letters or notes to each other and had hid them in a hollow stump or tree. She took a few clothes & left to go with him. She was 16 when my grandmother died.
In 1932 I believe was the year that Nancy Cooper Birge put our families information down on paper. It is from this basis that I have searched. Sharlee
August 10, 1996, I went to Pasco Washington to see my Uncle Lloyd Birge, son of William and Nancy. He showed me and I read aloud Nancy Cooper Birge Bible. I also have on tape recording. It was also from here that I verified all information on the Birge, Cooper, Armistead families. Bill Birge, Lloyd's son now has this Bible. Sharlee

Notes for WILLIAM LANKFORD BIRGE:
Per Lloyd Birge (son) August 10, 1996 to Sharlee
His dad was an only child. William's father Charles Lankford Birge died when William was 3 years old. His mother Elizabeth Minks Birge (French), "Now we know that it was his stepfather who was French." Sharlee
Sarah didn't live much longer.
His dad was raised by Elizabeth mother and dad. He thinks Elizabeth fathers name was Myles Minks. In Franklin County. He remembers vaguely going to see the Minks when he was very small six or so. We now also know that Myles or Miles Minks was Sarah's baby brother. Sharlee
Now, we know that William was raised by his stepfather, Michael Dyo and his grandmother Anna Burton Mink or Minks until Michael married Catherine Ada Burton Wagonseller. We now also know why the family has thought that the Birge family was Indian. It was Catherine Ada Burton (a cousin of Sarah Elizabeth Minks Birge Dyo) Wagonseller husband and her children by him that were Indian.
I now have a picture of Michael and Catherine Ada Burton Wagonseller Dyo, the main who raised William Lankford Birge. Michael Dyo was the legal guardian of William Lankford Birge and I have copies of all those documents.
Update; October 5, 2000. Now we know that William was four and one half years old when his father died. See Obit just received which I have posted to Charles's sheet.

86. JESSE JOSIAH 5 COOPER (ELIZABETH FRANCIS4 ARMISTEAD, THOMAS JEFFERSON3, WILLIAM H.2, ARMISTEAD1) was born 24 March 1874 in Near Sullivan, Franklin Co., MO, and died 09 November 1962 in Birch Tree, Shannon Co., MO. He married DORA MAGDALENE TOELKE 03 October 1900 in Union, Franklin Co., MO. She was born 01 April 1880 in Near Sullivan, Franklin Co., Mo, and died 08 November 1964 in Near Eunice, MO.

Notes for JESSE JOSIAH COOPER:
I have a picture of Jesse and Dora Cooper, taken March 1956 in front of the Stove they were very proud of which they had purchased Sept 27 1900.
Writing on the back of the picture; Jesse Cooper Age 82 March 24 1956. Dora M. Cooper his wife 75 April 1 1956. Age of the stove 56. married October 3 1900.
Per Jessie Cooper Thomas; Jesse Cooper's motto for his life was "If you can't say something good about someone, don't say anything, "Dora was the neighborhood nurse, giving many free hours of service to others. To be near his father Eli, Jesse rented his farm out in Franklin County MO. and bought one from Tom Ramsey, 7 miles of Thomasville in Oregon County MO. Lived there until 1911, rented it to brother John, moved back to his Franklin farm (by wagon) and until 1916 then back to Oregon County Mo farm about 7 years, bought the William Henry McAllister place at Flat Rock Community, Summerville Missouri. living there until fall of 1959 owning all three farms for a time.

Charles and Clifton were the hunters of the family. I remember Clifton often took his rifle out before school time and killed several squirrels in early morning.

OBITUARIES JESSE COOPER
Jesse Cooper, the oldest son of Eli and Elizabeth Armistead Cooper was born March 24 1874 in Franklin County near Sullivan Missouri and departed this life November 10 1962 at 9:00 P.M. Saturday in his home, following 22 days in the St. Francis Memorial Hospital, Mountain View, with a broken hip and a -torke of the throat. He had reached the age of 88 years, 7 months and 17 days. He was united in marriage to Miss Dora M. Toelke on October 3 1900 at Union Missouri. To this union were born 5 sons and 3 daughters: Charles of Salem Missouri, Earl of Eminence Missouri, Clifton of Brighton, Illinois, George of Three Rivers Michigan, Blance Hamilton of Alton Illinois, Berta Smotherman of Birch Tree Missouri and Beulah Dorman of Bartonville Illinois. Little Eli, the second son, preceded him in infancy.
To mourn his passing, he leaves his wife, 7 children, 24 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, one brother William of Eminence and a host of other relatives and friends who love him.
He was a farmer all of his life, living in Franklin, Oregon and Shannon counties; rearing his family by the golden rule as his guide. He professed Christ while living in Birch Tree Missouri, but had always been the peace maker. (Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.) He will be long remembered for his goodness and kindness.
The songs, Beautiful Isle, Beyond the Sunset and Precious Memories were sung by Mrs. Beulah Cox, Mrs. Ruth Dowler and Mr. Joe Duncan. A wonderful sermon was delivered by Rev. Norman Turnbaugh.
The pallbearers were 4 grandsons: Johnny, Gary and Edward Cooper and Troy Smotherman a grandson-in-law and Gene Smotherman. Services were held in the Church of Christ at Summersville, Monday, November 12 at 1:30 P.M. and interment was in Summersville Cemetery under the direction of Duncan Funeral Home.
A precious father from us has gone, a voice we loved is still; a place is vacant in our lives that can never be filled. And though the body slumbers now, the soul is safe in Heaven. These words we write of Father, dear.
As to our hearts they are given. You've done so many Christian deeds, you've been so honest, too. I'm sure no child ever had a better father than you. Dearest father, we hated to give you up, but your troubles now are all over. You have gone to be with Jesus. Across the bright heavenly shore.

I spoke to my mother last week. She is currently putting a book together of the family tree. She said she was not sure but thought Dora and her husband were married in Union and lived in Spring Bluff MO. The majority of the Toelke family in this area come from Christoff. He came to the US with seven children. Three were sons, Fritz, Carl and August. The Toelke’s in this area are primarily from these three brothers.
My mother was not sure if Dora was from Christoff s side or one of his brothers in Germany. Christoff and the family first settled in New Orleans when the came to the US. They then moved to St. Louis. Due to a small pox epidemic, some left St. Louis area down moved to Beaufort, Gerald area. Gary Toelke

Notes for JOHN HENRY COOPER:
John Cooper was such a good Tie Hacker that the buyers gave Top prices with out even inspecting Johns load of Ties. Even though John hacked thousands of Top Grad Ties, he also farmed and was a good match for Daniel Boone as a hunter. I have a picture of a live wolf he helped catch and cage. He built a log cabin that is being considered (and nothing else was said).
Aunt Nancy Birge said of John. "John is truly an honest man. Per Jessie Cooper Thomas

Notes for ISABELL (BELL) WELLS:
Per Jessie Cooper Thomas, " In the summer of 1920 on July 12, Aunt Bells brother, Willie Gilcrease, died and was buried in the Flat Rock Cemetery". She went on to say, " That was the first funeral that I can remember attending. It was July 13 1920. I was 6 years 7 months to the day. I remember it so well. Addie and I walked behind Mamma and Aunt Belle as she wept all of the way. I did not understand about death, but I felt so sorry for Aunt Belle. After they moved away from Flat rock I never saw them often. Today only Leona is still living. And so is Earthly life. Papa and my Mamma loved all of their family dearly and they wanted us to love them too. I am glad they did".

She was born 23 November 1894 in MO, and died 12 February 1959.

Notes for WILLIAM ELI (BILL) COOPER:
Bill liked to play baseball. Papa Richard had a picture of Uncle bill in a baseball suit with a Redbird on it. I hear my mother say that Bill had been in St. Louis and knew his way around the city.
The 5th son and named Eli for his father. He died 9:50 PM in St. Francis Memorial Hospital Mountain View Missouri.
I Jessie Cooper Thomas can remember some things since 1918 a few memories before that time. Today is Oct 9 1992. Uncle Bill and Aunt Myrtle lived in Flat Rock neighborhood when we moved there around 1920. Elfie was very small. Mama would let me go over to their house and play with her for I always did love babies. Aunt Myrtle had a hen that would walk back and forth in front of the house, singing and singing. Aunt Myrtle would open the door. In would walk Miss Hen, jumped up into the big rocking chair settle down into the big soft pillow kept there and proceed to lay her eggs. Then she jumped down and went cackling out the door. I thought that really something.
A few years later they moved and uncle Bill worked in the timber. One day we received word that he was hurt and bad. While hauling logs up a steep hill his truck malfunctioned and started running backwards. The road was crocked and many trees beside it when the truck rammed into some trees, the logs scooted into him and came near killing him. That was a short time before my brother Bill was born for I remember mama and papa (Richard and Hattie) talking about a name for our last brother, saying lets keep a Bill in the family.
Well, he lived and was up and about but not able to do much work after that. Aunt Myrtle died of cancer. They had moved down around Eminence Missouri. Elfie took care of her for a long time. Uncle Bill lived 10 more years, Elfie also took care of him.

QUILTED IN 1897
(KNOWN AS THE Devil's Puzzle Variation 1)
(also known as the FLYFOOT Variation 1)
Written by June J. Manion, Granddaughter of this GREAT LADY
Delila Edith Phillipp was born on 10 January 1883. She was the oldest of seven girls. She was twelve years when her mother died leaving Delila to raise the remaining children, the youngest being one (1) year old. She never had anyone to show her how to quilt other than what she had seen her mother do during the twelve (12) years before her death.
This quilt was made from the scraps of materials her mother had left and was made by Delila at fourteen (14) years old after she had put the youngest children to bed.
She worked by kerosene lamp and the quilt was in a frame. It has cotton batting and has seen much wear during its lifetime.
Delila Edith Phillip married in 1902 when she was nineteen (19) years and fifteen (15) days of age. Thomas Ruben Armistead moved into the Phillipp homestead and helped his father-in-law farm until his father-in-law died, in January of 1912.
Three of the sisters were still living with Delila at the time of the death of their father and remained with her until they left to marry.
Delila and Thomas, "Rube", in turn had nine (9) children of their own. Delila made quilts for each of her children and for her one granddaughter plus many quilts for the everyday use of her family.
Delila died in July of 1965 and was buried at the Evergreen Baptist church Cemetery, Leslie, Missouri. She had lived all of her life in that area. Her father-in-law had donated the land for that church and cemetery when his first child had died. All of the family is buried either in that cemetery or the one only a few miles away, at Cave Springs Cemetery Hwy 185 near Leslie, Spring Bluff, Sullivan MO.
The only trips away from home were to St. Louis, Missouri which was located about sixty (60) miles away from their home.
Delila worked night and day, since she was old enough to stand on a box to wash dishes, make bread and cook dinner on a wood stove. Her mother was ill during the last four (4) years of her life leaving Delila to do most of the work around the house and to take care of the children. Upon marriage she continued to do the same with her own family. They didn't have the benefit of electricity until her granddaughter was seventeen (17) years old. All the quilts she had made during her lifetime were made by kerosene lamps.
She started her granddaughter quilting when she was only nine (9) years old. It is a shame that the granddaughter waited until she was fifty-seven (57) years old to pick up the interest once again.

Marion M. Whertwine, of 905 South West 22nd Street, Fort Lauderdale, passed away Sept 29 1971 at the age of 60. She is survived by two sisters Mrs. Bertha Steinmetz of Fort Lauderdale and Mrs. Beula Key of St. Louis; one niece Mrs. June Manion of Fort Lauderdale and two nephews of St. Louis. Services and interment will be held in Overland, Missouri. Local arrangements made by Elwood Baird Funeral Home.

Martha always used the name of Marion because she did not like the name of Martha. This name was never legally changed. Marion had very little education. She was a hard worker. Never had children. Saved her money. Her husband was German and very "thick headed" hard worker saved what he could, enjoyed his home. After he died Marion had cancer operations (29 lymph glands). Her older sister Bertha went to St. Louis to help Marion at this time. Marion wanted to live with her sister and said she would buy a house there. She never gave into the fact that the cancer would kill her. Her niece June Davis-Duncan Manion came over ever day, cut grass, helped take Marion out in the wheel chair until she could not go. Congested lungs and weighted 69 pounds when she passed away. She never had a gray hair, she was dark skin, black hair, dark brown eyes. She looked like an Indian with her high check bones. Bertha inherited the house so she sold it and moved back with her daughter June and family.
When she was returned to Missouri for burial her niece June Davis-Duncan Manion returned with her, where she and her brother Kenneth took care of arrangements for burial services in Overland Church and also grave side at Cave Spring Baptist Church Cemetery, Hwy 185 near Leslie and Sullivan Missouri.

Notes for SARAH ANN ARMISTEAD:
This article was in the Franklin County Tribune on Friday September 20 1918: "Mr. and Mrs. Walter Bates and family departed for Greenfield Texas. Where they will make their future home."

This information was told to June Manion by her Great Aunt Sarah Ann Armistead, Bates when she lived in Bainbridge, Georgia.
Sarah Ann Armistead was born March 13 1885 on the old home place at Spring Bluff, Franklin County, Missouri. To further pin point the exact place; the area where the Evergreen Baptist church and Cemetery is now located was at one time a part of Sarah Ann Armistead's parents "old home place". Her parents names were Sarah Jane Gravatt Armistead and George Edward Armistead.
At the age of eighteen she married a man by the name of James Edward Brown. They were married May 7 1903. He left Sarah Ann when she was three months pregnant. Six months from the day they were married, he got a divorce.
James Edward Brown was born February 19 1885. It is believed that he worked on the Railroad for a while right after leaving Sarah Ann, as a section hand at Bourbon, Missouri. Although he married Sarah Ann under the name of Edward Brown and was buried by that name, Sarah Ann said that she found that his real name had been James Riley....Why he did not go by his real name is unknown???
Claude Brown was born February 9 1904 and died August 1906. He was only eighteen months old at the time of his death.
Sarah Ann married again December 15 1907 to General Walter Bates. She had known Walter Bates, but had never gone out with him until after her child died. She then had her first date with him and three months later married him in Champion City, Missouri by the Justice of the peace. They left Missouri and settled in Texas.
Here in Texas their six children were born, four lived and two died.

Notes for WILLIAM ELI (BILL) COOPER:
Bill liked to play baseball. Papa Richard had a picture of Uncle bill in a baseball suit with a Redbird on it. I hear my mother say that Bill had been in St. Louis and knew his way around the city. The 5th son and named Eli for his father. He died 9:50 PM in St. Francis Memorial Hospital Mountain View Missouri.
I Jessie Cooper Thomas can remember some things since 1918 a few memories before that time. Today is Oct 9 1992. Uncle Bill and Aunt Myrtle lived in Flat Rock neighborhood when we moved there around 1920. Elfie was very small. Mama would let me go over to their house and play with her for I always did love babies. Aunt Myrtle had a hen that would walk back and forth in front of the house, singing and singing. Aunt Myrtle would open the door. In would walk Miss Hen, jumped up into the big rocking chair settle down into the big soft pillow kept there and proceed to lay her eggs. Then she jumped down and went cackling out the door. I thought that really something.
A few years later they moved and uncle Bill worked in the timber. One day we received word that he was hurt and bad. While hauling logs up a steep hill his truck malfunctioned and started running backwards. The road was crocked and many trees beside it when the truck rammed into some trees, the logs scooted into him and came near killing him. That was a short time before my brother Bill was born for I remember mama and papa (Richard and Hattie) talking about a name for our last brother, saying lets keep a Bill in the family.
Well, he lived and was up and about but not able to do much work after that. Aunt Myrtle died of cancer. They had moved down around Eminence Missouri. Elfie took care of her for a long time. Uncle Bill lived 10 more years, Elfie also took care of him.

This article appeared in The Sullivan News on Thursday, May 8 1940: "Mr. R. M. Armistead has redecorated his home on Springfield Ave., and cleaned up the streets. The county grader worked the street. It has made a great improvement in town."

This obituary was in The Sullivan Mo. News on Thursday July 26 1945:
"Roy Armistead Dies Suddenly Last Friday
Sullivan was not shocked but was saddened at the death of Roy Armistead of Stanton who passed away Friday evening, July 20, 1945. He suffered a heart attack almost two years ago from which he never fully recovered and friends and relatives expected a soon an sudden passing. Roy knew it was the end because he turned to the nearest person to him as the attack approached and made a request.
Roy Armistead was a preacher, for 30 years, by call and by example. The surprise is that such a calm, serene man, as Roy Armistead should suffer from a heart ailment. He must have had not only a deep religious attitude toward the future but a definite philosophy toward life which is denied most of us or hidden beyond our ability to discover. Without trying to or making it obvious, the Rev. Armistead lived and moved religiously. It seemed to come natural to him. Any other attitude or course would have seemed unnatural. The world could use a lot of Roy Armistead, not only in the pulpit but in the marts of trade and the halls of deliberative bodies.
He served as pastor at Steelville and Stanton, but wherever he was his actions preached a sermon; not of reproach and condemnation of others but as an example and a shining light of what Christianity could do for one.
He was educated in the school system of Stanton Community and supplemented his basic education with business courses and advanced study. Educators estimated his education and academic ability as at least three years of college. And in many respects his accomplishments were 'self-made.'
The Rev. Armistead started his life's work on the Frisco Railway, first as a section hand, later as a telegraph operator. He also worked in St. Louis as a foreman in the Union Dairy and later as foreman of the coal chutes in Stanton, during World War I. Following the war he resumed his work as agent and operator for the railway, working at different places along the line including Sullivan. In the Fall of 1923, Mr. Armistead moved to Keysville, Mo., following his line of duty. There, the last of his four children was born. In the summer of 1930, he moved back to Stanton where he has lived in his own home since. During the past 25 years he also had a hobby of developing a stock of imported English Blue Andalusian chickens. In connection with his hobby he was secretary of the blue Andalusian Club of America and exhibited in the International Exposition in the Crystal Place of London. He had a market all over the world for hatching eggs and won many prizes and blue ribbons.
For a number of years he was employed by the St. Louis Star Times as a circulation assistant in Northern Missouri. The work gave him an opportunity for coming in contact with many people, among them was President Harry Truman. A little more than 10 years ago he resigned his position and became postmaster of Stanton and opened a store there with living quarters above.
He was almost stunned by a fire in 1940 which not only destroyed his store, home and contents, but burned an elderly gentleman who lived with them. While the tragedy struck in middle age, he and Mrs. Armistead started a new and with courage. They won and were fast beating back when death struck.
The Rev. Armistead took a great delight in remodeling the Stanton Community church which was completed just a short time before his death. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge of Steelville which conducted the funeral.
Roy M. Armistead, son of the late James M. and Alice Armistead, was born October 8 1889 near Stanton Mo., and was, at the time of death 55 years, 9 months and 13 days old. On August 8 1910, he was united in marriage to Miss Laura Armistead who bore him four children; Mrs. Noe Sanders, East St. Louis, ILL; Miss Olive, St. Louis; Roy B. Iberia; Ralph R. in the Service in the South Pacific, Seaman First Class. Funeral services were held at Stanton Community church Monday, July 23 1945, with interment in the Stanton Cemetery. The Rev. R. O. Miller preached the funeral.

Notes for CHARLES RICHARD ARMISTEAD I:
Charles R. Armistead was inducted into the U. S. Army at Union, Franklin Co., MO., on October 3 1917. His Army serial #2-178-424.
Charles served in these regiments: 59 Company 164 Dept. Brig.; Company B 354 Infantry; Company G 30 Infantry; and Company D 3rd Army Composite Regiment. He was promoted to Private 1st Class on December 1, 1918. Charles served overseas from April 2, 1918 to September 8, 1919. He was Honorably discharged on September 27 1919. 1528 F C Harris The Adjutant General
When Charles R. Armistead went into the Army he trained at Camp Funsten, Kansas. He said that he trained with a wooden gun. Charles was in six battles during World War I, and he had nightmares about the war for a long time after he was discharged. He was very fastidious about his clothing and appearance, which was why he was chosen to be in the special marching unit at the end of World War I. He was vaccinated nine times for small pox because the vaccination never left a scar and the Doctor's thought he had not been vaccinated. Charles was athletic and a good swimmer and roller skated. He never weighted more than 134 pounds during his lifetime and was small and wiry.
Charles attended school in Stanton, Franklin Co., Missouri through the 6th grade, being all the formal education he had. He always read the newspaper thoroughly and listened nightly to the radio news to keep up with current events. Charles and his wife, Emma, raised their kids, lived and worked in St. Louis, Missouri (until his retirement). After the death of his mother in 1906, Charles (being 10 years old) went to work as a cook for a lumber camp where his father also worked. He made a merry-go-round for his younger sisters; this endearing him to them thereafter. He was also given the task of rocking his little sisters to sleep, he kept the room dark and sang as he rocked "rock-a-bye-baby, rock-a-bye-baby 'shitty'". Charles attended the Stanton School in 1907, his teacher was Maggie B. Jahn (Margaret Petterson of Sullivan, Missouri in 1969); she taught three years. In the school picture, Charles is in front, with his sister, Ollie, behind him and his sister Meta is standing behind Ollie.
His occupation when he entered the Army was as a tailor. His daughter, Vivian, remembers when she was a child that he pressed his own pants and suits. He worked on a milk delivery truck for awhile after his discharge from the Army, but he soon went to work for Busch Seltzter Brothers Diesel Engine Company as a molder; working on building diesel engines for large ships. He was a meticulous worker and had a knack for making things. In his later working years, he had a job with Anheuser Busch as a guard. When he retired, Charles and his wife Emma moved to St. Clair, Franklin County Mo.
Vivian Armistead Hacker remembers her father as "not a very religious man", but a good law-abiding person who loved animals and was devoted to his wife and family.
Charles R. Armistead provided by June Manion.
Charles R. Armistead, son of the late James M. Armistead and Alice Carpenter Armistead was born at Stanton Missouri on February 8 1896 and departed this life at Jefferson Barracks Hospital, St. Louis, Mo., on Thursday Sept 20 1973 having reached the age of 77 years, seven months and twelve days.
He was united in marriage to Miss Emma Gerling on November 24, 1920 at St. Louis, Missouri and two children came to bless this union. He was preceded in death by one brother Roy M. Armistead and two sisters, Meta Dixon and Odist Trentman.
Mr. Armistead is survived by his wife Emma Armistead of St. Clair, MO., one son Charles Armistead of Manchester Missouri, one daughter Vivian Hacker of St. Louis County Missouri, two sisters Mary Randleman and Ollie Heady, both of Ellisville, MO; 9 grandchildren, three great-grand children, three great grand children, one son-in-law, one daughter-in-law, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
He was a Veteran of World War I where he served on six different fronts. Mr. Armistead was proud of the fact that he was selected to be a member of "Pershing's Own Composite Regiment which parade marched from France to Germany at the close of the war. He was a member of the Santiago Argonne V. F.W. Post No. 1102 in St. Louis, Missouri. A kind and loving husband, father and grandfather, he will be sadly missed by loved ones and friends.
Funeral services were held at 10 A.M. Monday September 24, 1973 at the Russell Colonial chapel, Reverend Lyall Parsons officiating. Interment was in the Stanton Cemetery, Stanton MO.

Notes for EMMA SOPHIA ANN GERLING:
Emma Anna Gerling attended Rock Ridge Public School District No. 53 Franklin County Missouri; her teacher was Alice C. Luchsinger.
Emma worked in the shoe factory (probably Brown Shoe Co..) in Union, Missouri and when she came to St. Louis, she was able to get a job with Brown Shoe Company and later with Johnson Shoe Company. She was a "top stitcher" which required extremely good sewing, since this would be on top of the shoe. Emma also worked for a leather purse & bag company as a "top stitcher: for a while. She was a good cook, and did a lot of sewing and crocheting. She could play the guitar and mandolin. She always kept a spotless house (even her basement was clean and free of bugs and spiders!) and when she and her husband retired to St. Clair, MO., she enjoyed gardening. She grew various vegetables and flowers; and was proud of the nice yard that they had. Her granddaughters, Karen and Evelyn Hacker, would come out and spend a week in the summer with her. She would cook for them, and they would make pallets on the floor in the living room to sleep at night, since Emma & Charles had a one bedroom house.

October 2, 2001 received e-mail from Donna Parks Hi, If you are related to the Parks and Armisteads of Franklin Co., we probably are related too. My dad put together a lot of information about the Parks family. I believe he has some on the Armisteads too. Here's what I have on the Stites/Parks Connection. William Park b: 1824 married Mary Polly Stites 1830, Anderson parks b: 1816 married Sussana Stites 1839, Ebenezer Parks b: 1824 married Nancy Stites 1843, and Elijah Bailey Parks b: 1827 or 1832 married Sarah Ann Stites Feb 12 1852. I am descended from Elijah through his 2nd wife Mary Polly Clarinda Miller. Jesse Park and Anna Dent were the Parks boys' parents. I don't have a date or place of birth on either but there were married Aug 10 1809 in Madison Co., Ky., according to what I have. If you need more detail, I have more. And if you have anything to help, please let me know. My paternal grandma was Lola Ann Armistead. Thanks, Donna Parks
