Generation Four

14Judith Smith4 Leland (Baldwin3, John2, Jno1) was born on 10 Apr 1807 VA, USA.190 She married Elijah Stevens, son of David Stevens and Eleanor Bentley, on 19 Jan 1842.191 She died on 28 Oct 1896 Zanesville, Muskegan, OH, USA, at age 89.192

She was purchased property in Cumberland where Conway Garrington recently lived, and made a home for heself, Betty & Augustin. (Note: unclear whether "recently" means prior to Judith buying property, or prior to J.A.C.II compiling his manuscript.) in 1837.193 In a letter to her from Marie Ann Wiley in Dec 1855:
"Dear Aunt:- I have got another little sister, she is eight months old and we think that she is a very smart baby of her age and her name is Lura Leland, she looks very much like father only she has got blue eyes . . . . . . . I do not like the place where we are living now as well as the place where we lived in Momenco. It would not be so bad if it were not for the bugs" .194
She was living in Zeno, Ohio when General John Morgan made his raid through Ohio during the Civil War. Morgan's raiders were hotly pursued by the Union forces and as their horses played out they seized others. When they came to the Stevens place, the two girls, Eliza and Virginia were at school, some distance away and had there horses with them. Aunt Judith told Morgan that she grew up in Virginia and sympathized with the South and asked him not to take the girls' horses when they passed the schoolhouse. The General promptly sent a detail and escorted the young ladies home in style. Charles Wood Eberlein, Kiamath Falls, Oregon, told me in June, 1942 that this chivalrous action on the part of General Morgan did not prevent their taking all the horses when they left. "I don't believe Aunt Judith was ever fully reconstructed, and my father said she made a Rebel out of Uncle Lige, though he by descent was a Connecticut Yankee."195

They were running a custom tailoring shop and had not made enough to pay the rent, $8.00 oer mo. There was too much ready made clothing on the market. The house was cold and wood was $5.00 per cord and coal $10.00 per ton. Mr. Wiley, who was not well, was at their farm 16 miles from North Kingston, and 8 miles south of Belvidore, Boone Co., Ill. They had a cement house on the farm but it had fallen down and he was intending to build a shanty. The neighborhood was called "Rob's". She invites the Stevens to visit them.

This not being to his liking, he came to Ohio in 1844 and engaged in the General Merchandise business at Kieth's and Sharon, Noble County, Ohio.259 After 1861 items from Madge Leland Cochran's letters indicate that Baldwin M. Leland was a southern sympathizer during the war, as were many other residents of southeastern Ohio who had come from Virginia. This was a stonghold of the Knights of the Golden Circle, headed by Clement L. Vallandigham. The object of this organization was to help Rebel prisoners escape, or get them exchanged, and to destroy Government property. In the basement of B.M. Leland's store, the Hoskinville Rebellion was planned. Some of the leaders were prosecuted but B.M. was crafty enough so they did not get him. Hoskinville is between Sharon and Cumberland.260

21John Augustin Charles4 Leland (Baldwin3, John2, Jno1) was born on 25 Jan 1824 Northumberland, VA, USA.275 He married Huldah Shepherd Stevens, daughter ofDavid Stevens and Eleanor Bentley, on 10 Dec 1845 OH.276 He married Ruth Kinsey in 1867.277 He and Ruth Kinsey were divorced in 1869.278 He married Sarah Jenkins circa 1870.279 He was buried in Mar 1895 McConnelsville,, OH.280 He died on 16 Mar 1895 Marietta,, OH, USA, at age 71.281
 J.A.C. Leland was about 5 ft. 10in. in height, very square shoulders, brown curly hair and brown eyes, weight 150 lbs. He had a loud voice. On one occasion he told the hired man to go to Cool's store one mile away and get some nails. When the man arrived the clerk handed him the nails. Though only a lad when brought from Virginia, he never lost his Virginia accent. He would go to the foot of the stairs of a morning and call to the youngest son, Hamer, "Hamah! Get up. My Lawd Amighty, its fo' o'clock." He supported the Union in the Civil War. I heard him say, "Ah can nevah fo'give the Democratic Pahty of Ohio fo' nominating Clement L. Vallandigham fo' Gove'nah, when this country was bleeding." Vallandigham was a Southern sympathizer and head of the Knights of the Golden Circle. He came to our place when I was about five years old and gave each of my sisters a silver dollar and me a five dollar gold piece. I thought it was a cent and set up a howl that I wanted one like the girls had. Mother rescued the five dollar gold piece that I had thrown on the floor, as Grandfather readily agreed to give me a dollar for it. It was customary in that part of Ohio to give a namesake his first suit. I wore kilts 'till I was six. How he stayed out of the Civil War is unknown to the writer. Maybe he hired a substitute. In the 60's he went to McLean, McLean Co., Illinois, and engaged in the mercantile business with Thornton Cotton. In 1902, the name" Leland & Cotton" was still legible on the building. He returned to Ohio in 1867 and bought the farm near Bristol. He added to it until it comprised 400 acres and was one of the best in the County in 1840 OH.282
