Notes for Aaron COLVIN


SOURCE:  Marilyn Solari writes:  "I decided one day to google AaronColvin. I
cant remember how many hits I went through but a LOT ofthem before I came up
with one from Descendants of Nathaniel Foster,Sr. This submission included a
transcript of a request for a pensionfor Nathaniel Foster, dated Oct. 1832, in
Adams Co., OH whereNathaniel was then residing. My eyes nearly dropped out of
my headwhen I read this section of his pension application:
“In this tour, 1777, he belonged to Captain Dubouch’s Company, hisMajor,
Tobin, CO, his Colonel Momo. This tour he served two months,and reached home
on the day of the battle of Germantown. In April,1781, he again entered the
service in Hampshire County, Virginia, as asubstitute for Aaron Colvin…”
In the interrogatories put by the court to Nathaniel Foster. He stated“At
the time of first entering the service, I lived in HunterdonCounty, New
Jersey; in 1776 I removed to Buck County, Pa; in 1780 Iremoved to Hampshire
County, Va.; In 1790 I removed to Bourbon County,KY. In 1798 I removed to
Adams county in which I have ever sinceresided. I first entered the service as
a volunteer; and I servedthrough [term?] as a substitute; first for Ezekiel
Rogers; next forAaron Colvin, and last as a volunteer.”
At the period of time in question [1781], there was only ONE
adultCalvin/Colvin living in Hampshire Co., VA and that was Stephen Calvin,s/o
John, brother of Vincent and my Capt. Luther Calvin.
Aaron Colvin is first spotted in records of Nelson Co., KY on 27 July1785 when
he was involved in a court case, an action of assault andbattery brought by
John Carr for his child, versus “Arian xxxx Colvin.This case was dismissed
with the defendant paying the court costs. Henext appears on the 1787 Nelson
Co., KY personal property tax list “H”taken by David Cox, Fry’s company,
probably northern Nelson Co., as“Aron” Calvin, 1 tithe [that is, 1 male
over age 21] and again in1788. At this time, Kentucky was still part of
Virginia.
Before 1790, Aaron had left Nelson Co. and moved north to Bourbon Co.,KY where
he was one of the signers of a petition dated 22 Oct 1790 tothe General
Assembly of Virginia, and he appears again in Bourbon Co.on tax lists dated
March 1791. In Mason Co., KY Court Records [Masonformed from Bourbon in 1789],
book B:530, we find a suit dated August1794 by the Commonwealth of Virginia
versus Aaron Colvan [sic - andothers including Luther Colvin] to show cause
why a fine should not beawarded against him for failing to list his taxables
for the year1794. This case was later dismissed. No further record of Aaron
isfound in Mason Co. KY.
Aaron had gone across the Mississippi River, probably ca 1796 [alongwith many
others] to what became part of the Louisiana Purchase in1803, then became
Missouri Territory, settling in an area which laterbecame Franklin Co., MO.
Aaron’s early land grant #151 of 400 arpentswas in Township 44 Range 1 West
located in the Boles area, probablynear Labadie on Fiddle Creek. It was later
washed into the Missouririver in 1844 during a flood.
According to Goodspeed’s “History of Franklin County, Missouri,”
thefirst settlers in that area which was then known as Upper
LouisianaTerritory, included the Ridenhours, Calvins, Reeds, Robersons,
etc.,etc. Aaron and James Calvin, Henry Ridenhour and other citizens of
thearea petitioned the President of the United States I 1850 to retainthe
Government of the Territory, and in that same year, among signersof Memorials
for Governor Wilkinson in December were “Aron Colvin,James Colvin, Hennery
[sic] Ridenour, Wm. and Andrew Robinson, etc.[Vol. XIII, Carter’s Papers]
It is strongly suspected that James Calvin was Aaron’s son and thatJames
married Marie Ridenhour, daughter of John and Christina[Zumwalt] Ridenhour,
early settlers.
In the years following the acquisition of the Louisiana Territory bythe United
States, a series of court cases ensued involving landowners attempting to
prove their claims and the boundaries of theirland. Aaron Colvin testified in
a number of these cases including thatof the widow of John Ridenhour who had
been killed by Indians about1803. The first document in John Ridenhour’s
estate probate was dated15 June 1803 when Santiago MacKay, Capt. Commander of
St. Andre of theMissouri, visited the widow Christina Ridenhour to inventory
the goodsof the deceased. Originally, Ephraim Richardson was named as
estateexecutor but on 8 Jan 1806, the Probate Judge of the District of
St.Louis granted James Calvin the administration of the estate. Thischoice
didn’t please Christina who complained in a document dated 27Jan 1806 to the
Probate Judge that “she is likely to Suffer frommismanagement of you the
Said administrator, in consequence of yourbeing insolvent and having
possession of the effects of the saidDeceased and Squandering the same to the
manifest injury of SaidChristina Ridenhour, her family and Creditors of her
husbanddeceased…? On 4 Apr 1807, Ambrose Boles, security for James
Calvin,administrator, stated to the Probate Judge that “…finding that
thesaid Colvin is likely to become insolvent, and believing that he
isdisposing of the Said Estate in an improper manner, and fearing that Imay
ultimately Suffer loss by being the Security of the said Colvin,do pray the
Honourable court of Probate to take into consideration mySituation as it
Respects my Securityship for the Said Colvin andrelieve me from the Same.”
On 26 Oct 1808, Christina, widow of John Ridenhour, and her children,Henry,
Mary, Betty, John, Barnett and Jacques, appeared before theLand Commissioners
claiming that 500 arpents of land situated on RiverMartigny, Late District of
St. Andrew, and produced to the Board aconcession from Don Carlos Dehaulk
Defeseus, Lt. Governor, dated 7 Dec1799, and a plat of survey dated 25 Dec
1799, certified the 17th ofthat month and year. Appearing for her was
“Aron” Colvin who sworethat John Ridenhour settled on the tract claimed
about 7 or 8 yearsprior, inhabited and cultivated it for two years and had
commenced athird crop and had made his garden when he was killed by the
Indianson the place.
Aaron and James Calvin also testified on 27 Oct 1808 for James MacKayof Wild
Horse Creek, District of St. Louis regarding MacKay’s landclaim. Aaron
Colvin signed a Promissory Note for $20.00 to EdwardHempstead to be paid four
months from July 1, 1811, the ate of thenote which was executed at St. Louis
and witnessed by S. Hempstead.Aaron signed by mark, but not the usual “X”.
His mark consisted of theinitials of his first and last name ?? “A.C.. In
April of 1812 AaronColvin borrowed $10.00 from John M. Young, according to
testimony ofSamuel Bittick of Bonhomie Twp., St. Louis Co., MO, this note
foundamong Aaron’s estate administration papers.
After 1812, no further trace is found of Aaron Calvin in that area ofMissouri.
At the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, Arkansas became part ofLouisiana Territory
and in 1812 when Louisiana was admitted to theUnion as a state, Arkansas
became part of Missouri Territory in whatwas called New Madrid District. Aaron
had removed himself and familyto what would become Lawrence Co., Missouri
Territory [now Arkansas].
We have absolutely NO information about Aaron’s first wife. He married2nd in
1806 to Sarah “Sally” [Epperson] Brown, widow of David
Brown.[Autobiography of Daniel Brown, son of David & Sally, received fromJan
James, no other source noted]. The probate file for David Browncontains about
75 pages [Missouri State Archives, St. Louis ProbateCourt] and it includes the
following document:
We Aaron Calvin and Sally his wife acknowledge of having received ofJohn [__?]
administrator of the Estate of David Brown deceased thepart given of one
hundred fifty eight Dollars and Twenty five Cents onaccount of what is due to
Said Sally for her Share of the Said Estateas a widow of said David Brown. St.
Louis March 19th A.D. 1807.Signed: Aaron [his mark AC] Calvin. Signed: Sally
[her mark X] Calvin.
Aaron Calvin died in 1815 in Lawrence Co., MO Territory [Arkansas].His Probate
File was Xeroxed and sent by Evelyn Flippo, Law 238#1,Pohattan, AR 72458. The
first document is dated 25 Apr 1815 in whichSally Calvin and William Roberts
were appointed administrators ofAaron’s estate. Securities were Walter Pool
and William Robinson ofLawrence Co., MO Territory. In a separate document,
Sally Colvin,widow and relict of Aaron Colvin deceased…”deposeth and Saith
that tothe best of her knowledge the following legitimate children of theSaid
Aaron Colvin deceased are now living namely James, Sally, Betsy,Mary, John and
the following are infants [i.e. under 21] Rebecca,Nancy, Richard, Fanny, Hern,
Sucky. [Note: “Hern” is most certainlythe clerk’s misunderstanding of
Aaron and Sucky is a nickname forSusannah.]
Among the various notes, receipts, etc. found in this probate packageare the
following:
September 1813: Aron Colvin Dr [debt] to James Colvin - $9.00. [Swornto as a
just and true account on 31 Aug 1816 by John (his X mark)Colvin.]
December 9, 1817: Received of Sarah Colvin, Administratrix of theEstate of
Aron Colvin Decst. The Sum of Nine Dollars as fullSatisfaction for the within
Account I Say Received by me. Signed:James [his X mark] Colvin.
There are many other papers in Aaron’s probate file including
theappraisement and inventory of his estate dated May 1815. He owned
manyhorses, 5 “bearexx ? skins, steel traps, powder, salt petre, a
pistol,tanned leather, a “Buffallow Robe”, a bible, a hyme and spelling
book,saddles, saddle bags, a beaver skin hat, a bridle, plus the
usualhousehold equipment.
