Notes for Archer G DUMOND


SOURCE:  Anonymous, "Counties of Porter and Lake, Indiana : historical and
biographical : illustrated" Chicago: F.A. Battey & Co.,, 1882, 770pgs.     Feb
2005
"Among the early settlers of Jackson Township, IN were Jesse McCord,who came
in 1837 and erected a blacksmith shop on Section 26; ArcherDumond, James P.
Cain, Eli B. Lanson, Hiram Dilley, and Walter andWilliam Thompson."

SOURCE:   Don Sweaney, MO via email Mar 23, 2005.  The Dumonds and theOlivers
were the originators of the town of Belmond, Iowa, having settled there from
Crown Point, Indiana.

The following is from The History of Wright County, 1875 by Andreas...
"BELMOND.   -   This is the largest village in the county, andsituated on
either side of the Iowa River in the northern part of thecounty. It was laid
out in the Summer of 1857, by A. Dumond, E.Rogers, and J. Elder. It originally
bore the name of Crown Point. Thefirst house put up in the village was built
by Dr. L. H. Cutter, in1856. In the same year he also built a flouring mill
and a saw mill,which were carried off by a flood, and replaced the next year
by asteam mill, which was afterwards removed to Kansas. In 1856, a schoolhouse
was built, and numerous private residences, and the village hasconstantly
increased in size and business. There are three churches,Methodist,
Congregational, and Catholic; one bank, two hotels, mill,and the usual
complement of stores and shops. The Belmond Herald ispublished every week by
J. H. Brayton, and has reached its fourthvolume. The first settlers in Belmond
Township were three families,who came here in 1854, but owing to fear of the
Indians they did notremain. The next year A. Dumond, T. Oliver, and Dr. L. H.
Cutterbecame permanent settlers. They built a log cabin in which no lessthan
twenty-one persons lived all through the Summer.   At that timethe prairie was
covered with game, and as many as forty elk have beenseen at one time feeding
on the prairie. The population of BelmondVillage is about 300; the township,
398; voters, 90."

Archer G. Dumond
March 29, 1808 - May 18, 1858

Archer Dumond only lived for three years following his family'ssettlement
along the Iowa River to Wright County, Iowa, but he and hisfamily left a
lasting imprint on the history of Belmond. Archer G.Dumond was born on March
31, 1808, in New York, the sixth of tenchildren born to Mary and Isaac I.
Dumond. The family moved to Ohiowhen Archer was about four years old, and by
1830, they were residingin Seneca County, Ohio. Archer (his name is Archer in
all historicaldocuments, including the Dumond Bible) moved from Ohio to
Indianawhere he was married to Elizabeth Martin on May 11, 1834, in
LaPorteCounty. Elizabeth was born on November 17, 1813, the tenth and
lastchild born to Mary Oliver and Robert Martin. Two weeks following
themarriage of Archer and Elizabeth, Thomas Oliver (Mary Oliver'sbrother)
married his niece, Deborah Martin (Elizabeth Martin's oldersister, or perhaps
half-sister). these families resided near CrownPoint in Lake County, Indiana.
The Dumond family (and probably theThomas Oliver family, too) moved to Iowa in
1854, with the Dumondfamily stopping in Hardin County for a few months and the
Oliverfamily stopping in Scott County. The Oliver family included
sevenchildren, as did the Dumond family. The two families moved to
WrightCounty early in 1855 and were joined by Dr. Lewis H. Cutler and histwo
sons from Stephenson County, Illinois. The three families built alog cabin
beside the Iowa River near where the first mill was latererected and all 21
persons lived through the summer in that cabin.Before long, Mr. Dumond erected
a new log house for his family, thisone on the Hill west of the Iowa River.
This little settlement wasfirst named Crown Point. In 1857 the Belmond
Cemetery near FranklinGrove was set apart and Archer G. Dumond, who died on
May 18, 1858,was laid to rest in this cemetery (Original Cemetery Land,
BelmondCemetery, lot 119", Belmond, Wright Co., Iowa). He had celebrated
his50th birthdays six weeks earlier.

Notes for Edith May DUMOND


BIRTH:  Date comes from a General Affidavit contained within anapplication for
Widow's Pension filed by Mary E. Dumond, widow ofEdward J. Dumond on the 28th
day of July 1900.  The woman attendingMary E. Dumond through her confinement
and at the birth (because there was no physician present) was Mrs. Ada E.
Burns.  A copy was sent tome by Joyce Krehbiel in July 2002.  What a gift!

"Memories of My Valley" for the Woodson Co., KS "In the Beginning".
The story and history of the Pleasant Valley and Rose communities werewritten
by Mrs. Edith Dumond Mentzer and were published serially inthe Yates Center
News starting November 7, 1950.  Mrs. Mentzer was born and grew up in the
Valley which she wrote about.  The story wasgleaned from memories, tales she
remembered hearing and fromscrapbooks she had.  As a young lady she taught in
the rural schoolsof Woodson County before her marriage to Ernest E. Mentzer. 
They madetheir home along West Owl Creek which she wrote about in later
years,and up until her passing in 1961.
This Valley is located south of Yates Center and is formed by twohalf-circle
of hills which meet the west but are broken at the eastmaking the valley two
or three miles wide and several miles long.Perhaps the first settlers to make
their homes here were the AlphaBrush, Sr. and Wm. Patterson Sr. families and
the Worth Eagle family.
In the early spring of 1867 a caravan of covered wagons left Lowell,Indiana
bound for Kansas to make their homes.  In the group ofpioneers were young
married couples and a few children and one singleman; Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Hale
and son James, Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Darst,Mr. and Mrs. John Dumond, Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Barker, Addie and Axie,Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Hale and Henry Peters.
On the last day of their journey, July 4, they camped at the Owl Creekford
just to the south of the Dist. 44 schoolhouse, where the Countyor Poor farm
was located, arriving the next day at Pleasant Valley tolocate their homes.
The J.A. Hales located over on the west rim of the valley on the farm(later
known as the J.W. Pringle Ranch).  There were three sons,James, Charley and
Clarence Hale and a daughter, Jennie, who grew upon this farm.
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Barker and daughters located just east of theHales.  They
had another son Joseph and daughter Julia.  Years laterthis was the home of a
grandson, Clinton Darst.
Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Darst settled on a farm one mile south of thePleasant Valley
School and it was here their two daughters were born -Myrtle (Mrs. Lawrence
Hefflefinger) and Nellie (Mrs. S.T. White, whowas the mother of Margaret White
Wilson and Frank White).
Henry Peters homesteaded the place north of Barkers - later C.H.McKinsey farm. 
Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Hale homesteaded where Otto Clarkfarm is, and where the
Pleasant Valley School is located.Hefflefinger bought and also lived a mile
east of the schoolhouse.
Mr. and Mrs. John Dumond located ½ mile east and three quarter milesouth of
the schoolhouse.  This was later known as the J.P. Kelleyplace.  Tragedy came
to the Dumond family here as the death of thefather occurred, leaving Mrs.
Addie Dumond and three sons, Frank,Edward and Fred.
Quoting from Mary Patterson Kelley, she said, "Wasn't I glad when wesaw the
Indiana caravan drive in our valley.  I was watching them fromour look-out on
Jelly-Cake Mound.  My sister and I made short work ofgreeting the Barker
girls, age 7 and 6 and I was 11."
A few years later, perhaps 1876, Mr. and Mrs. Jackson Dumond came outto Kansas
and settled on a farm 1/2 mile north of the schoolhouse.  Inthis family at
that time were two younger daughters, Laura and Lucy.Laura married George
Brush.  They homesteaded across the road from hisparents, leaving a short time
later for Colorado, selling their farmto her brother, Edward J. Dumond, Sr.
Edward Dumond Sr. and Cyrus J. Fuller came to the Valley about 1875.Fuller
settled to the south of the Hale farm.  In 1880 he marriedClara Slater.  They
raised five daughters, Myrtle, Monta, Agnes, Ellenand Viola; two sons, Warren
and Merle.
The home of the Slaters was one mile west of Rose - (Jr. Robbinsfarm). Their
children were Uri, Harvey, Heck, Rene, Clara, Myra andLena.
In the early 188's they sold to Mr. and Mrs. Barron and son Roy.  Theyin turn
sold out to Alonza Reed.  Then about 1894 Reed sold out toLevi Robbins, who
leased the farm to Mr. and Mrs. Jasper Scott andfamily.
Mr. Robbins then later built the house that stands there now and movedthere
with three younger sons, Richard, Pleasant and Riley.
After the death of John Dumond mentioned, Joseph J. Darst came outfrom Lowell,
Indiana and made his home with his sister, Mrs. Dumond.
The Alva Brush family settled one mile west of Rose.  Their sons were,George,
Marcus and Oscar and a daughter Lutitia.
The William Patterson homestead was just south of Rose.
The Porter family came in early 1870's and settled just to the west ofRose
(Edgar Evans farm).  S.E. Porter and family lived there for manyyears, and
were known as Uncle Steve and Aunt Alma.  Perhaps no otherwomen in my Valley
gave a larger contribution of service to thecommunity as did Mrs. Alma Porter. 
She was a wonderful nurse,mid-wife of outstanding ability and often fulfilled
the duties ofundertaker in those pioneer days when doctors and nurses
werepractically unknown.  They had three children, Bertha, Ollie and
Neil.Bertha became Mrs. A.B. Evans of Rose.  Ollie married James Clark,Neil
married Ora Smith.  They lived many years at Rose.
The Neff place, now owned by A.L. Pringle (now home of Lauren Pringle)was
occupied by the Neff family in the 70's, then it became the homeof Mr. and
Mrs. Eli Martin.  It was also the first home of theMcKinsey families when they
came to the Valley about 1895.  Later theylived on the Hale place, after Mr.
and Mrs. Hale retired to YatesCenter.  Then they bought the Henry Peters
place.
Henry Peters had married Charlotte Patterson, soon after coming toKansas in
1867, living on the homestead until he build the new homeacross the road to
the south, where the Otto McKinseys lived forseveral years.  The Peters had
four sons - Harry, Pearl, Clifford andKelly and one daughter, Ona Peters
Porter.  After the death of Mrs.Charlotte Peters, Mr. Peters married again and
there was one daughterGrace, and a son Estilin.  Of the Peters family, Harry
now lives atHumboldt, his wife is the former Miss Augusta Hartwig of East
OwnCreek.

Memories of My Valley - Vol. 2 - No. 5 Continued
By Edith Dumond Mentzer

When School Dist. No. 18 was first started it was known as the BrushSchool. 
The first school held was in the home of Alva Brush, Sr. Theteacher of this
first school was Miss Laura Dumond.  It was known as asubscription school -
the parents had to subscribe so much for theprivilege of their children to
attend school.
Pupils attending this first school were:  Addie and Axie Barker,Marcus, Oscar
and Lutitia Brush and Lucy Dumond.
It was not long until a small "Box" schoolhouse was built.  Undressedlumber
was purchased for the building.  Oliver Perry dressed andplaned the lumber as
the schoolhouse was built.  Early day teachers inthis building were:  Frank
Eagle, Mrs. Anna Everson, Anna Dickersonand Hannah Hale.
In 1881 the present building "The stone schoolhouse along the highway"as we
know it was built.  The first teacher in this building was Mrs.Delia Fleming.
After the schools, perhaps the literaries were the next factor ofeducation,
followed by the spelling matches and arithmetic contests.Pleasant Valley would
compete with Rose, Blume, West Buffalo inspelling or ciphering matches.  Many
were outstanding in each contest.
At the literaries many questions of state were debated and settled.Most of the
young men proved to be outstanding in debate.  Thefollowing names are given: 
Wm. and George Clark, Forest and DickWoodside, Thomas Morrison, G.K. Foote,
Tom Rucker, Frank Parsons, theHefflefinger boys and others.
So interesting did these debates become that it was necessary to limitthe time
for each.
Singing schools were also held at the schoolhouse in the evenings,where the
tuning fork was used in teaching the musical notes.
We find the organization of the Rose school was in July, 1867, at thesame time
as the Pleasant Valley.  The first schoolhouse was one milenorth and
one-fourth mile east of Rose.
The first school board was:  Clerk, George Trimble; Treas., CarlMiller;
Director, Henry Lunsey and in 1869 to '72 we find these werethe Rose school
board:  Clerk, E. Rook; Director, W.M. Patterson;Treas., A.P. Horton.
One of the first teachers was Miss Connie Woodruff.  Other teachers atRose
were:  The Woodside boys, the Kennards, and later Elizabeth Clow,Edna Norton,
Grace Guthrie and Fannie Magil.
Quoting from Mrs. S. Clark Fitzgearld, "Oh yes, our schoolhouses werevery
small, 10' x 15' and the seats were a native lumber board or alog, if we had a
desk it was only a board.  There were large cracks inthe siding where little
rifts of snow would blow across the room."
The Rose school was moved several times as new districts were formednearby: 
South Star, Harmony, Hopewell and Parallel.  Among the namesof board members
during the 80's to 1900 we find Mark Orbin, Mr.Hickman, Charles Miller, June
(G.W.) Cox, Wm. Patterson, Sr., Wm.Patterson, Jr., Joe Bideau, Marcus Brush
and others.  In the teachingprofession were:  Edward J. Dumond, Jr., Forrest
Woodside, Miss MamieWoodside, Andy Kennard and Mrs. Sadie Kennard.  Later on
the followingmade teaching their profession:  The Hefflefinger girls, Lillie
andNeva, Robena Pringle and Margaret Pringle Pool.
It is said when we become reminiscent we have reached our secondchildhood.  So
here we are remembering - to call to mind events of theearly days in My Valley
which may be classified as pathos, comedy ortragedy.  The pioneers of My
Valley came with high hopes.  They werebrave of heart and ambitious and hard
workers - with hopes in theirhearts to do their part in building the great
state of Kansas.  Theyfaced tornadoes, blizzards, droughts, grasshoppers,
Indians, ruffians,illness with no doctors, and all the privations of pioneer
life on aKansas prairie.
Quoting from Mrs. A.F. Darst, "Yes, that was a terrible cyclone(tornado) which
passed over here in '73 - it did not hurt anyone herebut damaged many
buildings over in the Center Ridge vicinity.  Thecloud came down and destroyed
a home - the mother and infant babe werefound the next day - dead."
Mrs. George Hill, Sr., "Oh yes, I remember the grasshopper year (1874)- we had
20 acres of the nicest corn you ever saw, and hoped to haveplenty of cornbread
and mush for ourselves and corn for our stock allwinter.  But the grasshoppers
came and ate it all just as it wasbeginning to tassel."
Mrs. Levi Robbins told about the same story; also stated that thelittle
ditches of their yard were leveled by the dead hoppers afterthey had destroyed
the crops.
Before the settlers had lived in our valley very long, it wasnecessary to
locate a cemetery.  The little Brush girl had died, thedaughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Alva Brush, Sr., so the first cemetery was onthe old Brush farm
three-fourths of a mile northwest of Rose.  Muchlater the Pleasant Valley
cemetery across from the schoolhouse waslaid out, given by J.P. Kelley, and
Wm. Patterson, Sr., was the firstperson buried there.
In 1884 tragedy came to the community by the death of Charley Clark bydrowning
at the crossing of the Buffalo Creek one and one-half milesnorthwest of
Buffalo, when returning to his home at West Buffalo wherethe home of Mrs.
Clark and her family was located one-half mile northof the West Buffalo
schoolhouse.
Another tragedy came to the community when Henry Peters was fatallyinjured
while riding a horse driving cattle in 1896.
In September 1899, the accident at the railroad crossing when twochildren of
the Fred Upson family, Clarence and Ethel, were seriouslyinjured and their
sister, Bessie, was killed.  This railroad crossingis on-half mile east of the
Pleasant Valley schoolhouse.
On a Sunday in June, 1895, the Fritz Schaede, Sr. family was returningfrom
church and  all-day visit with the Hartwick family east of whatwas known as
the Launders crossing which was a ford.  The swollenwaters of East Owl Creek
overturned their carriage, throwing thefamily into the waters.  A daughter,
Bessie, was drowned.
The tragedy at the Wakins home while raising their barn, resulted inthe death
of two men - Mr. Schnell and Luther Pingrey.  At that timeit was customary to
assemble all the materials, then on an appointedday a large crowd of men would
come and the barn would be raised.Such was the procedure but something caused
the heavy timbers to startfalling and manpower was not strong enough.  These
two men weretrapped beneath the fallen barn.
A group of women were preparing dinner for the large bunch of men,intending to
have a good social time along with the work.  Quotingfrom S.E. Porter:  "I
never saw a woman so capable assume command in acrisis as was Mrs. Watkins. 
She immediately came to the scene andgave first aid in every way to help."
Fires were a great cause of alarm in the early days and many times thepioneer
settlers were called to fight prairie fires - many timesthought to be set by
marauding Indians.  The loss of their home byfire was tragic to the
Hefflefingers, as the father's death occurredabout that time, making life very
hard for the mother and family.
Tragedy came to many homes by illness, which we today hardly realizeanything
about.  Medical science has made great progress.  We rememberthree families
who were victims of what we now call TB, lagrippe andpneumonia, which each
year took a toll of human lives.  Fever and aguecaused much ill health.
Christmas '99, the community took up a collection which was presentedto a
widow woman who had just come to the Valley.  The money was usedto buy
materials for a one-room house with a small attic above - themen of Rose
Valley donating the work and the women preparing meals forthe workmen.  This
was sponsored by C.H. McKinsey, G.A. Gillespie, and the Pattersons of Rose.
There was no herd law, and cattle, horses and sheep ran at large.When you
wanted them you could look over the open spaces; barbed wirewas unheard of. 
Some small scale lots were with stone fences and somerail fences.
The first houses were required by the Homestead Law to be built 14' x16' and
settlers camped in their wagons until their first homes werebuilt.
Our Indiana pioneers camped in the John Dumond grove for several weekswhile
building their homes and chopping in a sod crop of corn, garden,pumpkins,
turnips and potatoes.  Cane was planted for molasses which,with cornbread and
salt port, was the staff of life.  The wild gamecontributed much to the
livelihood, as deer, ducks, geese, antelope,rabbits, quail, prairie chickens,
plovers, etc., were plentiful withno license to buy or game warden to spy.
Flour was a luxury.  Wheat could be hauled to Humboldt or Boyville toa toll
mill and ground for a share.  You sifted out the bran yourself.A corn grater
was used to grate the first ears of corn into a softmeal which had a very fine
flavor.
Jackson Dumond was a fine cabinetmaker, also made the caskets for thecommunity
burials, and had a small broom factory at his home.
Baxter Baker's father-in-law made barrels and firkins and oak shinglesand
hickory handles for tools.
Camp meetings were held every summer for some time in the Geo. Davisgrove by
Rev. Skinner - also Rev. Rowe and Rev. Vickers.  People camefor miles to these
meetings and camped for a week to attend.
The people got a first-hand view of a mining rush when it was reportedthat
silver had been discovered at West Buffalo on a hill just west ofthe
schoolhouse on the Geo. Hill land.  The vicinity of the silver wascovered with
campers, claims were staked out, but when the test wasmade, the silver was
mica and had no commercial value at that time.Silver City again became a quiet
prairie hill as the wealth seekersleft as suddenly as they came.
M.V.B. Pearsall was a fine horticulturist and furnished fruit treesand vines
and flowers from his nursery to many of the settlers.  Everyfarm had its own
orchard.
Vigilant Committees were formed to maintain law and order.  We findthe names
of Mr. Hefflefinger and Geo. Davis as leaders.  Many of thesettlers served on
this committee.
Much excitement was felt over the Benders when their murder at theirplace near
Thayer was discovered.  The Benders had herded cattle onthe prairie between
our Valley and Kalida and many of the homes hadextended their hospitality to
them the year they were in the vicinity.
In referring to our Who's Who we find in religious ministering thenames of
William and Dick Woodside, Harry and Rufus Webster, MerleFuller, and Fred
Pearsall and a Mr. Gould; in the 90's we find WilliamDice as contributing much
to the religious life of the community.
Wm. Brock, who lived at the Worth Eagle home, was an artistic homedecorator in
painting of doors and casings.  Later Mr. Brock moved toDenver where his work
was in great demand.  Before leaving Rose Valleyhe was married to Miss Mary
McClutcheon, who came to the Valley in1895 with her mother and brother and
lived on the Muzner place andlater on the Brush farm.
Two weddings of interest come to mind - Sept. 1, Sunday, 1880, whenMiss Lucy
Dumond and Wm. B. Woodside were married at the PleasantValley schoolhouse to
which the community were invited guests, with adinner and reception at the
home following.  The home was one-halfmile north of the schoolhouse and 
infare dinner for the immediaterelatives at the Woodside home was the next
day.
Mr. and Mrs. W.B. Woodside resided for a few years on the farm - thenhe felt
the call to the ministry, later serving several Christianchurches - Yates
Center, Gridley, near Winfield, and in Missouri.  Heretired to Yates Center
later and served as Probate Judge of WoodsonCounty.
And a generation later, on May 27, 1901, occurred the double weddingof Miss
Lucy Darst to Harry Webster, and Miss Ellen Webster to CharlesE. Darst, with a
union service by which both couples were married atthe same time.  Rev.
Blackburn of Buffalo, pastor of the Rose M.E.Church, married Ellen and
Charles, and Rev. Comber of Eureka, pastorof the Valley Baptist Church,
married Lucy and Harry.
Miss Lucy and Charles were the daughter and son of Mr. and Mrs. J. J.Darst,
Miss Ellen and Harry were daughter and son of Mr. and Mrs. R.D.Webster, Sr.,
both families of the Valley community.  The wedding wasat the Webster home
where many guests enjoyed the day with them.  MissAddie Taylor attended Lucy
and Miss Eva Wirick, Yates Center, attendedEllen.  Both couples made their
homes in the community for severalyears.

died about seven years ago.
The subject of this review was born October 20, 1867, and his home hasbeen
within the confines of Woodson County continuously since.  He wasreared on the
farm owned by the family and attended the commonschools, acquiring a good
English education.  After attaining hismajority he engaged in farming for ten
years, finding that aprofitable labor.  He was thus engaged until 1896, when
he begandealing in hay at Rose, and during the past five years he has donemuch
of the shipping of this commodity at this point.  His businessafford a goal
market to the hay producers of this section of thecounty as well as brings to
him a good financial return.  He attendsstrictly to his business and his close
application and energy havegained for him a place among the prosperous
business men of theregion.
On the 25th of January, 1890, Mr. Dumond was united in marriage toMiss Cora E.
Thorpe, who died in August, 1893, leaving one child,Gertrude M.  In May 1900,
he was again married, his second union beingwith Miss Jane A. Gregg, a
daughter of James and Elizabeth (Auld)Gregg.  They have a pleasant home and
many friends in Rose andthroughout Woodson County.  In his social relations
Mr. Dumond is arepresentative of the Modern Woodmen of America and of the
AncientOrder of United Workmen.  Having spent his entire life in the countyhis
history is a familiar one to his fellow townsmen, and that he hastheir high
regard is an evidence that his career has been dominated byprinciples and
practices which command respect. ~~~

FRED A. DUMOND
One of the native sons of Woodson County, who has been an eye witnessof the
growth and progress of this section of the state from an earlyperiod in its
development is Fred A. Dumond, a progressive farmer ofEminence township.  He
was born on the family homestead, November 26,1872, and is a son of John W.
and Adaline (Darst) Dumond, pioneersettlers of the community.  The father was
born in Seneca County, Ohioin 1838, and was a son of Jackson Dumond.  He came
to Woodson Countyat the beginning of the '70s, locating in Eminence township,
where hesecured a claim.  With characteristic energy he begin its
developmentand continued its cultivation until his death, which occurred
October24, 1872.
John W. Dumond was married in Lake County, Indiana, to Miss AdalineDarst, who
was born in Benton County, Ohio, December 7, 1846, adaughter of Abraham Darst.
By this marriage three sons wereborn—Frank, Edward and Fred A. After the
death of her first husband,Mrs. Dumond, on Christmas day of 1874, gave her
hand in marriage toDaniel V. Dow, who was born in Addison County, Vermont, in
1822, anddied in Woodson County, Kansas, in July, 1885. When a young man
heleft Vermont and started in a southwesterly direction. For a few yearshe
resided in Texas, whence he was forced to flee at the outbreak ofthe war of
the Rebellion on account of his sympathy with the North. Hemade his way to the
Union lines and enlisted in the First ArkansasInfantry, but was soon
transferred to the hospital corps as hospitalsteward, serving in that
department until honorably discharged at theclose of the war.
Mr. Dow then returned to Vermont but had been in the west too long toremain
satisfied with the slower and more conservative methods of theast and
accordingly he came to Kansas, securing a claim in townshiptwenty-five, range
fifteen, in Woodson County. He became one of thewell known and valued
residents of the county and was a successfulfarmer. In an early day he held
the office of county surveyor and laidout the town of Toronto, also did much
of the work of that characterin the vicinity of Neosho Falls. He served as
trustee of his townshipand always gave a loyal and unfaltering support to the
principles ofthe Republican party, in which he most firmly believed. Unto Mr.
andMrs. Dow were born two children, Susie A., wife of Forest Ruehlen, bywhom
she has one child. Ernest; and Estella C., who is with hermother. When Mrs.
Dow came to Woodson County, in 1866, Indians werestill in the neighborhood,
but committed no depredation and wereusually friendly to the settlers. They
camped among the farms androamed to and fro over the country on visits to
neighboring tribes.
Fred A. Dumond, whose name introduces this review, has spent hisentire life in
Woodson County. He was reared upon the home farm forthough his father died
during his early infancy he remained with hisstep-father and was trained to
the practical work of the fields andmeadows through the summer months while in
the winter season hepursued his education in the district schools. When he
began businesson his own account it was along the line to which he had been
rearedand he is now successfully farming on section twelve,
townshiptwenty-six, range fifteen, where he owns and operates two hundredacres
of valuable land, the greater part of which is under a highstate of
cultivation. He is also engaged in dealing in hay, which is agood source of
revenue and largely increases his financial resources.
On the 31st of December, 1899, Mr. Dumond was united in marriage toMiss Alice,
daughter of Samuel KahI, one of the early settlers ofEminence township, and
they have now a little daughter, Esther May,who is the life and light of the
household. Mr. and Mrs. Dumond havemany friends in his native county and he is
justly classed among theprogressive young farmers, whose well directed labors
bring to themcreditable success.

SOURCE:  From the combined efforts of Pam Rolleston, Jean A.Berlekamp, Elsie
Keen and Julie DuMond.  The 8th child, JacksonDumond, is my direct ancestor
and the information I had up until thispoint was only on him and his family. 
August 2001.  Information given me is as follows:
Isaac:

ago
MARRIAGE: Notes from Pam Rolleston and Jean A. Berlekamp say IsaacDumond
married Mary ? who was b. 12 Aug 1776 and died in Seneca, OH 11Aug 1841.
MOVES:  Isaac Dumond purchased land in Seneca Co. OH on 1 Feb1822.Could Isaac
be this guy and Isaac I be a son?
Isaac Dumond
The Isaac Dumond family is listed in various Seneca County historiesas being
one of the first white families living in the area of the oldFort Seneca
before 1821. The Dumond family included Isaac, and hiswife Mary (the author
has Malinda but records maintain that it wasMary);  their oldest daughter
Gertrude Swim, a widow with two smallchildren; and their eight other children,
ranging from twenty year oldIsaac I., to the baby. The Dumonds came to this
area from PickawayCounty, Ohio where they had lived for over ten years.
The family first lived in cabins vacated by the Indians when theymoved to the
Seneca Indian Reservation which use just across theSandusky River from the old
fort. Isaac returned south to Delaware,Ohio for the first day of the land
sales, August 22. 1821. He signedfor a fractional part of Section 9, the land
on the West Bank of theSandusky River. He built a cabin on the river band 
moved his familyinto it. Isaac was considered honorable and trustworthy by
hiscontemporaries, as he had been elected a trustee of Wayne Twp.,Pickaway
County and was elected the first treasurer of Pleasant Twp.,Seneca County when
it was organized in 1831. Sally Montgomery FraryIngraham, the daughter of his
friend, described him in William Lang'sHistory of Seneca County, James
Montgomery a Methodist minister and the first Indian Agent appointed to the
Senecas. She said, "He wasfive foot eight, compactly built, and slow of
speech. He was
kind and hospitable, and a good neighbor." Agent Montgomery used Isaacas a
witness in determining whom guilty of selling whiskey to theIndians. He
dressed himself as an Indian and took two Indians, Shaneand John, along with
Isaac Dumond to the house of a suspect. In theman's cabin, John called for
whiskey and, after tasting it, handed theglass to the Agent, who also tasted
it to make sure it was whiskey. Hethen threw back his feathers and blanket
and, using Isaac as hiswitness, confronted the man who promised not to repeat
his offense.
Isaac was a devout "Old School" Baptist and it was in his cabin thatthe Seneca
Church, the oldest in the Seneca Baptist Association wasformed in 1823 under
the leadership of Elder Kating who often preachedthere. Isaac died February
21, 1836. According to historian WilliamLang, his death occurred in a small
frame house he had built neartheir cabin, close to the road. He was buried in
the Dukes BuryingGround on land donated to the community by his son-in-law,
AndrewDukes, for use as a cemetery. This later became Pleasant UnionCemetery. 
Some of Isaac Dumond's descendants moved westward toIndiana, Illinois, and
Iowa, helping to found towns there. The trailsof these people fan out across
most of the western states. But IsaacDumond left this community a legacy
through his descendants whoremained here although most of them do not realize
that he was one oftheir forefathers. Few families with the surname of Dumond
still livein the Old Fort Seneca area, but the fourth generation had
marriedinto the families of Dukes, Mc Nutt, Strouse, Humes , Cunnings,
Brown,Swan, Sheets, Shuman, Hade, Hoke, Stiger, Joseph, Simpson, etc. and the
involvement of his descendants in the community are all parts ofhis legacy.
CHILDREN:  Notes from Pam Rolleston and Jean A. Berlekamp say IsaacDumond had
children Daniel, Gertrude (Gitty), Isaac I, Sally, John,Archer G, Lang,
Electy, Jackson, Tillman w/ their dates.
It does seem that George Washington did go out to visit his brother.Isabell
was the sure giveaway. He must not have stayed, at least to beburied, since he
died at Burgoon, Ohio. I do not know there he isburied yet. I must go to the
library and check the cemeteryinscription books to see if I can find him. I
would also like to findthe birth and death dates for Isabelle. I know who her
parents wereand that her mother married first a Humes and then the Montgomery.
TheHumes is a direct descendant for me and I know where the family waswhen she
was born I just have to find the records.

Notes from Pam Rolleston and Jean A. Berlekamp say Isaac Dumond d. 21Feb 1836

Mary:
Jean A. Berlekamp's notes say Mary ? born 12 Aug 1776, NY?, died 11 or13 Aug
1844, Pleasant Twp, Seneca Co, Ohio. These are the charts ElsieKing sent me in
1993.
1986 research.
From another e-mail from Pam: "Back to the Dumonds! I have learnedthat Isaac
was in Pickaway County prior to coming to Seneca Co. Weknow that he was there
as early as 1809 (this according to the Historyof Pickaway Co.) I thought that
Isaac might have been the one in theNew York 1820 Census but the evidence in
Pickaway Co. rules that out.He also gave his place of origin as New York when
he filed thegovernment land papers for where he settled in Pleasant Twp.
According to family lore Mary's believed to be of Native Americanblood lines.
This has not been established. We do now that she couldnot write her name
because all deeds are marked with an X on her part.
Most of the information that we do have on this family stems from a"Family
Bible" that was found in the home of Lorenzo. The entries aremade in different
handwritings and since Mary was illiterate we knowthat she did not start it
and so far have not found any handwritingsto compare. The cemetery that they
are buried in was at the time ofIsaac and Mary's deaths was called "Dukes
Burying Ground" in honor ofthe family that donated it. Later it became the
Pleasant UnionCemetery. So they are one in the same and located in Pleasant
Twp.,Seneca Co., Ohio. I have seen several references to the "Early Historyof
the Dumond Family" contributed by Miss Anne E. Smith in your WebSite. This is
one of the extras that Jean gave me from her resources.It was apart of a book
called "Old Ulster" by Brink that she found andcopied in New York. The problem
is linking all the great genealogy towho we have researched.  --Pam  ******
Daniel:
One note says burial 14 Feb 1829, but latest notes from Pam Rollestonsay he
died 21 Feb 1836. I am going with the 1829 date because hisfather was given
guardianship of his children in 24 May 1830.  ******

His wife was Sophia. Children: son born between 1820 and1830, Andrew born

Sophia Dukes in Ohio in 1823 (churchsite). He also bought land in Seneca Co.

it was.)
Dear Julie,
I came across your Web site by queries in one of the GenealogicalForums last
night. I read it with great interest and
some of the names started to ring bells. That made me dig out FamilyGroup
sheets from my mother's side.
I was very interested in the note you included from your GrandfatherJoel
Harvey DuMond, Sr. I am in the middle of getting a hold of asmuch information
as I can so that I can give you as much background onwhat I am about to tell
you as I can. I still have some missing linksand am going to consult a cousin
who has been working on the DuMondline longer then I. I am 99% sure that your
Great Grandfather and hisson got off a train the small town of Old Fort,
Pleasant Twp, Seneca,Co., Ohio. This is where he met his Uncle for the first
time. If 1910is correct then that would have made "Ory" 76 yr. old. I believe
thisman's given name was Lorenzo Abbott DuMond. He was named after
anothergentleman in the area and may have used "Ory" to help
distinguishhimself from Lorenzo Abbott.
The name Andrew Jackson DuMond really helped to convince me that thestory your
Grandfather Joel, related to you, happened in Old Fort andthat Lorenzo was the
man he met. Lorenzo had a brother Andrew J.DuMond who vanished in this area (
his brothers and father are listedin the 1860 census but he is not and none
afterwards). You have adifferent birth year and spouse for him but that can
happen when youdon't know where he came from.   As for the book that you are
lookingfor "Book of DuMonds" my cousin copied the same information from abook
she found on her quest to prove the DuMond line on a researchtrip she took to
New York State. I read the contents of your Web siteto her over the phone and
she kept telling me what I was going to tellher. She kept telling me about the
surnames of DuMont being usedthough out the book. I will find out where she
came across it and getback with you on it. Where ever she came across it, the
public musthave access to it. I look forward to hearing from you.

Notes for Jackson W DUMOND


SOURCE:   "History of Allen and Woodson Counties, Kansas"  L. WallaceDuncan &
Chas. F. Scott.  Iola, Kansas:  Iola Register, Printers andBinders, 1901. p.
785.

According to one family source:  "Dumond family came from France about1781. 
Settled in Lowell Lake Co., IN.  To this couple 2 sons wasborn, Jackson and
John.  Jackson and Amy (last name unknown) marriedand lived in Indiana until
1866.  They moved to Kansas in coveredwagons and settled in Woodson Co. at
Buffalo.  To this couple was bornone son, Edward, 3 daughters (Miranda, Laura
and Enice).  Broth Johnmoved to Kansas about the same time.  Jackson was a
cabinet maker whomade caskets for the community burials and had a small broom
factoryat his home."   ~~~~

"Memories of My Valley" for the Woodson Co., KS "In the Beginning".
The story and history of the Pleasant Valley and Rose communities werewritten
by Mrs. Edith Dumond Mentzer and were published serially inthe Yates Center
News starting November 7, 1950.  Mrs. Mentzer wasborn and grew up in the
Valley which she wrote about.  The story wasgleaned from memories, tales she
remembered hearing and fromscrapbooks she had.  As a young lady she taught in
the rural schoolsof Woodson County before her marriage to Ernest E. Mentzer. 
They madetheir home along West Owl Creek which she wrote about in later
years,and up until her passing in 1961.
This Valley is located south of Yates Center and is formed by twohalf-circle
of hills which meet the west but are broken at the eastmaking the valley two
or three miles wide and several miles long.Perhaps the first settlers to make
their homes here were the AlphaBrush, Sr. and Wm. Patterson Sr. families and
the Worth Eagle family.
In the early spring of 1867 a caravan of covered wagons left Lowell,Indiana
bound for Kansas to make their homes.  In the group ofpioneers were young
married couples and a few children and one singleman; Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Hale
and son James, Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Darst,Mr. and Mrs. John Dumond, Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Barker, Addie and Axie,Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Hale and Henry Peters.
On the last day of their journey, July 4, they camped at the Owl Creekford
just to the south of the Dist. 44 schoolhouse, where the Countyor "Poor" farm
was located, arriving the next day at Pleasant Valleyto locate their homes.
The J.A. Hales located over on the west rim of the valley on the farm(later
known as the J.W. Pringle Ranch).  There were three sons,James, Charley and
Clarence Hale and a daughter, Jennie, who grew upon this farm.
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Barker and daughters located just east of theHales.  They
had another son Joseph and daughter Julia.  Years laterthis was the home of a
grandson, Clinton Darst.
Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Darst settled on a farm one mile south of thePleasant Valley
School and it was here their two daughters were born -Myrtle (Mrs. Lawrence
Hefflefinger) and Nellie (Mrs. S.T. White, whowas the mother of Margaret White
Wilson and Frank White).
Henry Peters homesteaded the place north of Barkers - later C.H.McKinsey farm. 
Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Hale homesteaded where Otto Clarkfarm is, and where the
Pleasant Valley School is located.Hefflefinger bought and also lived a mile
east of the schoolhouse.
Mr. and Mrs. John Dumond located 1/2 mile east and three quarter milesouth of
the schoolhouse.  This was later known as the J.P. Kelleyplace.  Tragedy came
to the Dumond family here as the death of thefather occurred, leaving Mrs.
Addie Dumond and three sons, Frank,Edward and Fred.
Quoting from Mary Patterson Kelley, she said, "Wasn’t I glad when wesaw the
Indiana caravan drive in our valley.  I was watching them fromour look-out on
Jelly-Cake Mound.  My sister and I made short work ofgreeting the Barker
girls, age 7 and 6 and I was 11."
A few years later, perhaps 1876, Mr. and Mrs. Jackson Dumond came outto Kansas
and settled on a farm 1/2 mile north of the schoolhouse.  Inthis family at
that time were two younger daughters, Laura and Lucy.Laura married George
Brush.  They homesteaded across the road from hisparents, leaving a short time
later for Colorado, selling their farmto her brother, Edward J. Dumond, Sr.
Edward Dumond Sr. and Cyrus J. Fuller came to the Valley about 1875.Fuller
settled to the south of the Hale farm.  In 1880 he marriedClara Slater.  They
raised five daughters, Myrtle, Monta, Agnes, Ellenand Viola; two sons, Warren
and Merle.
The home of the Slaters was one mile west of Rose - (Jr. Robbinsfarm). Their
children were Uri, Harvey, Heck, Rene, Clara, Myra andLena.
In the early 1880's they sold to Mr. and Mrs. Barron and son Roy.They in turn
sold out to Alonza Reed.  Then about 1894 Reed sold outto Levi Robbins, who
leased the farm to Mr. and Mrs. Jasper Scott andfamily.
Mr. Robbins then later built the house that stands there now and movedthere
with three younger sons, Richard, Pleasant and Riley.
After the death of John Dumond mentioned, Joseph J. Darst came outfrom Lowell,
Indiana and made his home with his sister, Mrs. Dumond.
The Alva Brush family settled one mile west of Rose.  Their sons were,George,
Marcus and Oscar and a daughter Lutitia.
The William Patterson homestead was just south of Rose.
The Porter family came in early 1870's and settled just to the west ofRose
(Edgar Evans farm).  S.E. Porter and family lived there for manyyears, and
were known as Uncle Steve and Aunt Alma.  Perhaps no otherwomen in my Valley
gave a larger contribution of service to thecommunity as did Mrs. Alma Porter. 
She was a wonderful nurse,mid-wife of outstanding ability and often fulfilled
the duties ofundertaker in those pioneer days when doctors and nurses
werepractically unknown.  They had three children, Bertha, Ollie and
Neil.Bertha became Mrs. A.B. Evans of Rose.  Ollie married James Clark,Neil
married Ora Smith.  They lived many years at Rose.
The Neff place, now owned by A.L. Pringle (now home of Lauren Pringle)was
occupied by the Neff family in the 70's, then it became the homeof Mr. and
Mrs. Eli Martin.  It was also the first home of theMcKinsey families when they
came to the Valley about 1895.  Later theylived on the Hale place, after Mr.
and Mrs. Hale retired to YatesCenter.  Then they bought the Henry Peters
place.
Henry Peters had married Charlotte Patterson, soon after coming toKansas in
1867, living on the homestead until he build the new homeacross the road to
the south, where the Otto McKinseys lived forseveral years.  The Peters had
four sons - Harry, Pearl, Clifford andKelly and one daughter, Ona Peters
Porter.  After the death of Mrs.Charlotte Peters, Mr. Peters married again and
there was one daughterGrace, and a son Estilin.  Of the Peters family, Harry
now lives atHumboldt, his wife is the former Miss Augusta Hartwig of East
OwnCreek.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OBITUARY:  Dumond. - At his residence in Eminence township, onSaturday
evening, August 9, 1879, after a protracted illness, DeaconJackson Dumond, in
the 64th year of his age.
The deceased was born in Pickaway county, Ohio, May 19, 1815; marriedto Amy
Cutwright, Feb. 19, 1835, in Seneca county of that State, andin 1845 moved
with his family to Kale county, Ind., thence in 1867 toWoodson county, Kansas,
where he has since resided until this his lastremoval to the land of the
blest.  One of the earliest settlers inEminence township, he was extensively
known as a citizen characterizedby good principles and  earnest desire to
maintain and defend whateverhe deemed best conducive to the interests of
society.  For nearlyforty years a member of the Baptist church, his exemplary
Christianlife gave forth no uncertain light, and the remembrance of his
manyacts of kindness and words of exhortation will remain long in thehearts of
both the old and the young.  The church and the Sundayschool feel the shock of
the removed pillar.  The funeral services,conducted by Rev. Frame, at the
Pleasant Valley school house, wereattended by a large concourse and as the
long solemn processionfollowed the remains to Buffalo cemetery, with the deep
pervadinggrief was mingled the cheering thought that he died full in the
faithand with a bright hope of resurrection morn.  To those who
kindlyassembled during his last illness, the family tender their
sincerethanks. "But why should we murmur or feel to complain, Or think thatour
portion is hard; We have met with affection - 'tis truly his gain0 He enters
the joy of his Lord."   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
