Urbana Daily Citizen 9/24/1885 William Ward died Wednesday ca 60 yrs, resident of this county all his lif e; brother of JQA Ward the noted sculptor and Edgar M Ward, the artist.

Champaign Co, Gen Society Newsletter 1st Qtr 2000 from Champaign Democr at 1/28/1897 submitted by Pat StickleySCULPTOR H AD MONEY

October 10,1911 Miss Eleanor Ward, an aged maiden lady of Urbana, Ohio, began a conte st in Justice Platzek's part of the Supreme Court Friday to upset the wi ll of her brother, John Q. A. Ward. He was the noted sculptor who died, ag ed 80 years, on May I last. He left his property aggregating $150,00 0, to his wife, whom he had married four years before. Miss Ward and others of famous old Pilgrimage stock, were not mention ed to any extent in the will. She claims it was made when her brother w as of unsound mind and unduly influenced by his wife.

Sensational Charges Sensational charges were made against Mrs. Ward by ex-Justice Van Wyck wh en the case was called. He said: "This will is not the will ofWard, but the result of the domination ofa wo man who was not the wife of his childhood. It was a marriage to secure a ll his property ." Miss Ward has named as defendants all the late sculpto r's near relatives, including his brother, Edgar M. Ward, and three niec es by deceased brother, Eleanor W., Julia and Henry Ward. Ward's chisel h as left its marks in many cities in America. Central Park has several stat ues he made, those of the Puritan, the Indian Hunter and Washington bei ng prominent. At his death, he left two massive equestrian statues of Gene rals Sheridan and Hancock unfinished.

Descendant of Pilgrims He traced his lineage back to the settlement of Jamestown on the father 's side and back to the arrival of the Pilgrims on his mother's side. Mr s. Ward is gray haired and 50 years old. She met the sculptor in 1880. Thr ough 26 years, their acquaintance continued. It culminated in marria ge in 1906. Most of this time Ward lived in her home. She was Mrs. Smith b efore her marriage to Ward. She has one grown son. Ward's will was filed in the Surrogate's Court. A contest was begun the re by Miss Ward. She lost the suit. She then went to the Supreme Court. Mi ss Ward claims her brother made a will in 1909 leaving his estate to his s isters, Mary and Eleanor. They were to provide for the widow from the esta te. Mary has since died.

Allowance Was Stopped Miss Ward told a long story about the old homestead at Urbana, Ohio, whe re she and her sister Mary have lived since they were born. She said th at she had another brother, Edgar N. Ward, and that when he was married, s ome thirty years ago, the sisters made over to him 220 acres of the old ho mestead farm retaining 72 acres on which the house stood. This was done, s he testified, pursuant to an agreement with the sculptor, who promis ed to give his sisters $100 per month during their lifetime. At the dea th of one of them the survivor was to receive $67.50 until the death ofh er brother, when the remittance stopped. The will of Mr .Ward provided th at the monthly allowance to his sister should not be a charge against h is estate, and consequently the payment stopped.

October 13, 1911 Mrs Rachel N O Ward, widow of J Q A Ward and the defendant in the suit bro ught by Miss Eleanor Ward, sister of the dead sculptor, to break his wil l, was on the witness stand before Justice Platzek in the Supreme Court ye sterday. The will provides that the entire Ward estate, valued at more th an $100,000 shall go to the widow. Mrs Ward said that Miss Ward and Mrs An na Glessner had visited Mr Ward shortly after he had married the defendan t, and that the tree women had gone shopping. She testified that Miss Wa rd purchased several articles and charged them to Mr Ward. Dr henry Van Dy ke, former pastor of the Brick Church, was called as a witness for Mrs War d. He testified that Mr Ward was a rational man. He siad the sculptor a nd he had often met at their club, which was "for old men." "We may have g rowled together about club politics," said Dr Van Dyke, "but Mr Ward was a lways a cheerful growler." The witness said he had always considered Mr Wa rd a strong, solid man, both mentally and physically. He said the sculpt or never drank anything more than a little red wine. "He used to say Champ aign was not good for old men.", said Dr Van Dyke. "You have said your cl ub was for old men. You don't class yourself as an old man, do you?", he w as asked. "I certainly do. I'm a grandfather." replied Dr Van Dyke.

Admits Conspiracy Cella W Day, an old friend of Miss Ward testified that she had met Mrs Wa rd before she married the sculptor and had a conversation with her about m arriage. The witness declared that in this conversation she told the wido w, who was then Mrs Smith, that no woman married a man of 76 (Ward's a ge at the time) unless he had money. She testified that Mrs Smith said th at she knew Mr Ward had money and that she intended to marry him. Mrs Smi th was 54 years old when the were married and Ward was 76.

Historical Collections of Ohio By Henry Howe Vol. I ©1888 CHAMPAIGN COUNTY JOHN QUINCY ADAMS WARD, regarded as America's first sculptor, was bo rn in June, 1830, in the family homestead, still standing on the southwe st border of the town, and occupied by the sisters of the artist. He was w ell born. His mother's maiden name was MacBeth; his father was John A. WAR D, a farmer, and owner of about 600 acres of land, which he inherited fr om his father, Col. William WARD, the first settler and proprietor of t he site of Urbana.

In one of the rooms of the mansion is an elaborately carved mantelpiec e, in front of which stood the parents of the artist when they were marrie d. Among the curiosities is a plaster bust of a young girl, a niece, whi ch is the first model he ever made—the expression is sweet and soft; a po rtrait of his mother in basso-relievo, and a plaster statuette; a mod el of Simon KENTON in a hunter's garb, leaning on a rifle. Session's pap er on “Art and Artists in Ohio” give these items in regard to him:

He received his first instructions from teachers in the family, then in t he village schools, and lastly from John OGDEN, a good scholar and wort hy lawyer, who is still living in Urbana. An old series of the “ Encyclope dia Britannica” proved a great storehouse of knowledge to him. From childh ood he worked images in clay of dogs and other animals, of objects, as m en on horseback, etc. The first work of art he ever saw was a copy of a he ad of Apollo in terra cotta, by Hiram Powers, which was owned by John H. J AMES, of Urbana.

From sixteen to eighteen he suffered from malaria and general ill-healt h, and was depressed in spirits. At the latter age Mrs. THOMAS, a marri ed sister living in Brooklyn; N. Y., said to him, “Quincy, would you real ly like to become an artist?” His reply being a bashful “Yes,” he was tak en to New York in his eighteenth year, but for many weeks could not must er up courage to enter the door of Henry K. Brown's studio, although he w as a friend of his sister's family Finally he ventured to timidly ask h im if he would take him as an, art student. Brown told him to go back ho me and model something, so that he could see what he could do.

He shot across to New York, bought a copy of the “Venus de Medicis,” and l ugged home a bag of clay over a distance of two miles, and went to wor k. He took his clay “Venus” to Brown, and was accepted at once as a studen t. He worked over six years with his master very hard. He executed a wolf 's head for a fountain in Mexico, for which Brown paid him $10, the fir st money he ever earned. In this studio he learned a the minute detai ls of the sculptor's art, The Frenchmen employed to assist in the mechanic al expert work in connection with the erection of the equestrian stat ue of “Washington” in Union Square having “struck,” WARD to Brown to disch arge the whole lot, as they could complete the statue themselves. WARD sa ys he spent more days in the bronze horse belly than Jonah spent in the be lly of the whale.

The greater part of 1857-58 Ward spent in Washington City, modelling bus ts of Job P. Hale, A. H. Stephens, J. R. Giddings, and Hannibal Hamli n. He came to Columbus bus early in 1861 with a model of a statue of Sim on KENTON, ho hoping to obtain a commission from the State. While he re he executed bust of Gov. Dennison. His next effort was the now famous “ Indian Hunter,” in Central Park, which had an enormous success from the fi rst. Six copies in bronze, reduced in size, were sold on highly remunerati ve terms. Then followed the execution of the principal of WARD’S work s, in this order: “The Freedman man;” bust of Dr. Dewey, in marble statu e, colossal, of Commodore M. C. Perry, in New York; Seventh Regiment Soldi er, bronze heroic, in Central Park; “The Good Samaritan;” statue of Gen. R eynolds;” Shakespeare,” in Central Park, “Gen. Israel Putman:: heroic siz e, in Hartford; “ William Gilmore Simms,” bust, in Charleston:” “Gen. Geor ge H. Thomas,” equestrian, in Washington; “The Pilgrim,” heroic, in Centr al Park; “Washington,” bronze and colossal, in Wall street; “William E. Do dge,” in New York.

Mr. Ward has recently finished a colossal statue of “Garfield,” which h as been placed in Washington City by the army of the Cumberland He has al so completed the model of a gigantic soldiers' monument for the city of Br ooklyn. This last work will probably be the masterpiece of this sculpto r. It illustrates our whole military history from the revolution to the re bellion, including the war of 1812 and the war with Mexico. Washington, Ja ckson, Scott and Grant appropriately represent the four periods. f it is by the universal judgment of American artists and art critics Quin cy WARD is placed first among American sculptors. H. K. Brown once said th at “Ward had more genius; than Greenough, Crawford, Powers and all the oth er American sculptors combined. “

Eastman Johnson, James H. Beard and other eminent artists have affirmed th at WARD has passed beyond Story, Ball, Thompson and all other rivals, a nd is now without a peer as a sculptor. He is unquestionably the greate st artist that this country has yet produced. Numerous commissions for for ty, sixty, and a hundred thousand dollars now await his execution.

From CCGS Newsletter Fall 1991 Lifestyles of the Famous (sketch) Sculptor John Quincy Adams Ward (1830-1910) , one of Urbana's most famo us native sons is among those profiled in our forthcoming book. (Howeve r, commoners outnumber celebrities throughout the volume - many times over !) Here are some additional detaails of interest wqhich time and space d id not permit in the book. They are taken from the Urbana Morning Tribu ne Aug 23 1906 which in turn borrowed from the New York World: Ward "... is enjoying his third romance despite his 76 years...." He was m arried to Mrs Rachel Smith on July 19" a charming woman, many years (hi s) junior....." When interviewed, the new bride confessed that she had be en dreading "this notoriety. We have tried to keep our marriage a secret a nd have failed." She had known the sculptor since he was 10. "He was marri ed twice but his married life was short. His first wife lived about sev en years and his second about a year and a half. I had been a widow f or 20 years." "Mr Ward has boarded with me for six years here. He is a mo st elegant man, but we never thought of marriage. He had been expecti ng to end his work soon and go to his old home in Urbana, where his maid en sister lives. I expected to go to live with my son in Chicago. I have a lways believed in only one marriage. I never believed the grand passion co uld come but once. (Editors note : Evidently she had never heard the senti ment of today's popular song " Love is lovelier, the second time around. ") "But when persons grow old companionship becomes very important a nd we seek it. We have been good companions and friends. We shall now sp end the reminder of our days together." Mr and Mrs Ward are both buri ed at Oak Dale Cemetery

URBANA PEOPLE SOME WHO WERE RAISED IN THIS CITY AND ThEN MIGRATED TO OTHER PLACES AND W ON DISTINCTION. From Urbana Daily Citizen Nov 27 1889 by Geo A T Probably the most noted person who first saw the light in Urbana, is JO HN QUINCY ADAMS WARD. He began his work as sculptor in moulding’ clay in t his place. Thirty years ago he went to New York. Today he is acknowledg ed to be the greatest sculptor not only of America, but of the world. Urba na looks with pride upon her favorite son. His brother, EDGAR H WARD, is a nother who has won a prominent place in his profession. N’r Ward spent sev eral years in Europe, and ‘then returned to his own country and settl ed in New York, where he ranks with the leading artists of this county.

CCGS Newsletter Sept 1998 Pg 106 “Rock of Chickamauga” John Quincy Adams Ward, Urbana, 0., man who became this country’s first sc ulptor of note, added to his fame with the “Rock of Chickamauga,” an eques trienne statue of Civil War Gen. George H. Thomas. The unveiling was in Wa shington, DC, in 1878. Critics pointed to the slouched hat, easy pose of the horseman and the loo sely-held reins, but Ward deliberately chose the pose because it was chara cteristic of General Thomas. Ward’s finest work, many critics believ e, is the statue of George Washington in civilian clothes which stan ds on the steps of the sub-Treasury in Wall Street, New York, near the sce ne of the first presidential inauguration. It was unveiled in 1883. Ward attained the zenith of his art in his many statues of Revolutionary h eroes. From Anecdotes of Ohio by Gilbert F Dodds

(Note from rose-hebe@hotmail.com) This newspaper article is misleading. Case involved out of wed lock child of Martha Shafer, at age 16 ,daughter of Nicholas Shafer. Nicholas gave Martha's child to a hired hand Tom a nd Sarah Lantz to raise. And did not follow through with his promise to pa y. Thus Sarah took him to court. Martha was only 16 when she had the child, with a married man who worked on the farm, who had a family with children of his own at the time, had a child born the same year and another after that..Nicholas wanted nothing to do with the out of wedlock child, or the farm hand involved. The child was never adopted the name was never changed, the descendents of said child know exactly who they are: Shafer not Lantz.

One of the well known and highly esteemed citizens of our township, as well as one of the leading farmers of the west end, is J. W. Heath, Sr., a native of this vicinity, whom to know is to respect. He is one of the few men who have came up from obscurity to an enviable position among his fellow-men. His cradle was not a manger, but a sugar trough of the pioneer style. By economy and industry he has accumulated several hundred acres of land and enjoys the comfort of the best farm house in the county. His barns are large and capacious and his cattle on a "thousand hills" [more or less]. But what we intended to say was that he was fifty-two years old on the 6th inst, and friends to the number of fifty came to enjoy his hospitality. Representatives were present from Quincy, DeGraff, Millerstown, and surrounding country generally, "Specs, Jr.," included. The dinner was of the style that indicated somebody ought to have been married among the many prospective outlooks that were present, yet nothing of the kind happened. For a good, hearty, square Republican dinner, go home with Wesley Heath.

Note from Cathy forwarded from Joyce Sept 2008
From Joyce: (blue are my comments)
My records show that 40- Thomas and his wife Dorcas Morris or Morrison had 146- William and that he was born in KY in 1801. I had the same 1850 census information that you do. I show that 146- William moved about 1851 to Fairfield, Jefferson Co., IA. An obit of son Samuel L. Hurd in the Lockridge Herald newspaper, issue of 2 Sep 1910, page 4, col. 4, there said that Samuel came to Iowa with his parents when about age 10. ( When researchers could not find William in Jefferson County, IA census records they assumed he had died. I don't think William ever went to Jefferson or if he did he didn't stay long!) I have the same children that you show below, and I show that Eliza Jane was born ca 1836 in Champaign Co., OH. I do not go any later with the family, as I only covered the first five generations in America, but I do have information on 146- William's brothers and sister and give the names of researchers. I could tell you how to get in touch with them if you would like.
I am showing another child than you have for 146- William. He had a son by Mary Reynolds, named William, Jr. born in 1829 in Champaign Co., OH. I guess William, Jr. had already married and moved into his own household by the 1850 census.

Since 1893 he has resided on his present place, coming here from anoth er farm after his house had been destroyed by fire. He saw three yea rs od hard service in the Civil War, in the 94th regiment, OVI, as a priva te, but was soon detailed as a musician. He was only a boy of seventeen ye ars at the time and fought through two hard battles, those of Kentucky Riv er and Perrysville, before he had reached his eighteenth birthday. He w as also in the Battle of Stone River, was at Chickamauga and Lookout Mount ain and was one of the brave men who helped to gain victory so often for G eneral George H Thomas. During a large part of the time he was a drummer a nd on many occasions his inspiring music put courage into the dishearten ed soldiers. On one occasion his drum was used for a purpose perhaps nev er before thought of, being converted into a ballot box, proving a safe re ceptable. This was when the Ohio troops were returning from Atlanta, whe re they had marched under Gerneral Sherman's command, and the election w as for the office of Governor of Ohio. Mr Tarbutton went through the hazards and hardships of three years of w ar without being wounded or taken prisoner, but he contracted measles a nd the disease settled in his eyes and finally resulted in destroying t he sight of the left optic. He was under treatment in a hospital in Murfre esboro, Tenn and it was during that time that he lost command also of h is vocal chords to such an extent that he could only whisper. He finally e scaped the discipline of the hospital and joined his regiment at Anders on Station, Tenn. He is justly proud of the fact that he is one of the pic ked veterans chosen to march with General Sherman, being a drummer at th at time. In the memorable march there were 62,000 men, a wagon train of 25 00 six-mule team wagons and 600 ambulances. Mr Tarbutton enjoyed the hono rs paid to the victorious soldiers at the Grand Review at Washington Cit y. He received his honorable discharge papers at Columbus June 5, 1865, af ter which he returned home and has been a quiet, peaceful, useful memb er of his community ever since, proving as capable a farmer as he had be en courageous as a soldier. He has taken an active part in public affai rs in this section, served one term as township trustee, and has been scho ol director for wighteen years and has served a number of terms as road su pervisor. On march 3, 1870, Mr Tarbutton was married in Clark County to Mahala Flore nce Runyan, who is the daughter of Henry and Rachel (Jones) Runyan. She w as born in Clrk Co, Ohio May 16, 1848. Her full brothers and sisters ar e; Wesley, Luther M, James M, Esther Ann, Francis M and Emeline, and her h alf brother and sister are Lucretia L and Cora E, and Charles H. Mr and Mrs tarbutton have had seven children, namely; Jessie, Buddie, Eust ice, Osco Earl, Myrtle, Claud H and Carl. Both Buddie and Eustice di ed in infancy. Jessie was born Oct 21, 1871, married Lawrence E Davvison a nd they have four children; Edwin, Born in 1895; Florence born in 1897, Eu stice born in 1899, and Emily born in 1904. Osco Earl, born Nov 10, 1875 m arried Emeline Rupert a daughter of Adam and Malind Rupert of Champaign Co unty, and they have two children, Lillian Opal born 12-11-1898 and Rupe rt Earl born 7-18-1903. Myrtle was born Feb 8, 1878, was married to Howa rd Wolf in 1904 and they reside at Springfield. They have one child, Jes se Tarbutton, who was born Dec 8, 1906. Claud H, born July 16, 1882 in 1902 married Ella Lellis. They had two children and their surviving son, Mit chell was born May 16, 1906. Carl, born in Jan 1888 was married in 19 06 to Sarah Brown. Mr Tarbutton did not recover his speech until some time after his return f rom the army. His family and neighbors have become accustomed to his conve rsing in a whisper and when he suddenly discovered his ability to ta lk as loudly as anyone, he was overwhelmed with congratulations, and sin ce that memorable day he has had no return of the paralysis of the vocal c hords. He is a member of the N M McConkey Post No 391, Grand Army of the R epublic. He attends the Episcopal Church at Catawba.

[HI30184] (Research):Champaign Co, Genealogical Society, Champaign Co Oh-Newspaper Abstracts M ay 1855-1871, (March 2000). pg 189 5/13/1869 Md 6th at the res of N Ambro se by Rev D Warnock, Capt B F Ganson and Miss M B Ambbrose of Urbana.

History of Champaign Co, OH Beers -pg343 One instance is recalled, as indicative of the times: A colored man, nam ed George Harris, was employed to assist in the corn-field with the shov el plow. He was a runaway slave, bad stopped in Champaign, as either a sa fe place, or to recruit, after his toilsome flight. His first employment w as in this corn-field, on the patch assigned to Thomas Ogden. Harris w as a capital hand, of medium size, strong, active and skillful. He spent t he day in the corn-field, and at night made love to a colored woman whom M r. David Ogden had brought from Virginia. One morning, young Ogden, on h is way to school, saw a stranger with a handbill describing a runaway slav e, and talking to a man named Kirkpatrick, who was known to make a busine ss of capturing runaways. He at once hastened his steps to the corn-fie ld where Harris was plowing, told him in a few words what he had seen, a nd added: "Now, George, if you have run away from the South, the best thi ng for you to do is to leave here as fast as you can." Harris was astound ed at the news, said he was a runaway slave, and added that he "would nev er be taken alive," and, leaving the horse standing in the furrow, broke t hrough the corn at a full run, toward the north. In about a month a lett er was received with a Canadian postmark, stating that he had reached Cana da without interruption, was doing well, and requested that "Sally " mig ht be sent to him. Sally was duly sent and reached his home. No word was h eard from him afterward, but Harris had pluck, energy and intelligen ce to succeed anywhere. The two kidnapers, on scouring the field, which oc cupied some time, found that the prey had escaped, and gave up the chas e. Among the boys who were concerned in the field and garden were Evan Pat rick, Robert Colwell, Holly Raper, Thomas Ogden, William Samson, Willi am H. Pearson, John A. Corwin, Decatur Talbot, Ichabod Corwin, Emmet and W arren Holding, William H. Colwell, George Folsom, John Carter, Lewis Hunte r, Ed Goddard, Thomas Bell, Decatur Talbott, Bela Hovey, T. H. Berry, Newt on Ambrose and others-in all about forty pupils. At the first the boys m et at the school-room and were mustered in front of the building. A ball ot was had for captain, which resulted in the choice of John A. Corwin, w ho at once stepped from the ranks and acknowledged the honor in as gracef ul a speech as he ever afterward made in his best efforts at the b ar or on the stump ; when, with the order "shoulder hoes," the company sta rted to their field of labor. But after a week or ten days the mustering w as found to consume unnecessary time, and was abandoned.

[HI30230] (Research):Andrew Deweese, farmer; P. O. Troy; he was born in Miami County Novemb er 1, 1827, is a son of Thomas and Ruth Dye Deweese; he was probably a nat ive of Virginia, she of Pennsylvania, and came to this county among its ea rliest settlers; they were the parents of seven children, viz., John, bo rn May 5, 1823; Mary, born September 15, 1825, now Mrs. George W. Fuller a nd living in Urbana; Andrew; Elizabeth, deceased, was marrierd to John Cro y, by whom she had three children; David, born march 7, 1833; Melissa, bo rn August 21, 1835, deceased; Thomas, deceased. Mr. Deweese first locat ed on upon the farm now owned by the Statlers, where he resided about sev en years, then going to the farm adjoining it on the north, upon which t he sons, Andrew and David, now live; where he lived and died, February 1 7, 1838; his death being caused by a run-away team, throwing him from a sl ed; he was dragged quite a distance and so much injured that he died the n ext evening. When Thomas came upon this farm, it was all in the wilderne ss and they then commenced in pioneer style, in a log cabin, toiling and l aboring from year to year, till at last they were permitted to see so me 50 acres cleared, a good brick house erected, and everything brought in to such improved conditions that it became a very comfortable and pleasa nt home. Andrew and David have now managed the farm for about thirty-fi ve years and, during this time, have bought out the other heirs, being ent ire owners of the farm for many years. Andrew was united in marriage Septe mber 5, 1866 with Elizabeth Hart, daughter of Wilson and Laura Hart. Andr ew and David have an excellent farm, in fine cultivation. After the dea th of Thomas Deweese, Ruth, his wife, was left with a large family of sev en children, one being an infant, while the eldest was but 15 years of ag e; with this charge upon her hands, it called forth all of the energy a nd good judgement of her well-balanced mind to keep her family all togethe r, raise and train them aright; but she was a woman fully qualified for t he undertaking and well did she do her work; managing the farm, educati ng and training the children in so successful a manner that her care and t eaching can never be forgotten by them; her labors and good works deservi ng a place upon these pages to be handed down to mothers of future generat ions. On December 21, 1876, her labors being done, at her Master's call, s he quitely passed away from the toils and cares of earth to joy and pea ce beyond.

Thomas Shroyer acquired a farm of 160 acres in Bethel Township a nd cleared up almost all of it. He was one of the leading men of his s ect ion at that time. Both he and wife died on their pioneer farm and were bur ied in Bethel Cemetery. They were worthy members of the German Reformed Ch urch.

Jacob Shroyer, father of John William, was a young man when be came to Mia mi County and when his father died he came into possession of a generous p ortion of the home estate and to this he subsequentIy added until he own ed 700 acres.in Bethel Township. He was a leading Democratic politician a nd as a public man was held in the highest esteem. For forty years he w as elected to the office of township treasuer, for ten years was a trust ee and at one time his party put him forward as its candidate for c oum ty treasurer. He died in old age, in February, 1889, and was interred at N ew Carlisle. Bethel Township remembers him as one of her most honest ai id useful men.

Jacob Shrover was thrice married. His first union was to a Miss Black, wh o, at death left six children--Thomas, Matilda, Catherine, Annie Maria, He nry and Harriet. His second marriage was to Susan StocKstill, a daught er of Thomas Stockstill, and ther e were six children also born to this un ion-John William, Oscar, Sarah, Rebbeca, Camelia. This wife was buri ed at New Carlisle. His third marriage was to Priseilla Man, who left no i ssue. All three were women of most estimable qualities. Jacob Shroyer w as a member and liberal supporter of the Reformed Church.

John William Shroyer was reared on the home farm and spent his school da ys in Bethel Township, where he secured what was considered a very fair ed ucation. He continued to assist his father until his marriage, when he set tled on his present farm, one wh ich was already cleared with the excepti on of a few acres and improved with substantial buildings. The county dit ch runs through his property and thus ensures excellent drainage. As his l and lies only four miles east of Tippecanoe City, Mr. Shroyer and family a re able to enjoy both rural and urban advantages and these are appreciat ed as he has a fainily that is more than usually intelligent. Mr. Shroy er devotes his large farm to general agriculture and to stock raising.

In 1868 he was married to Miss Margaret Anna Williams, who is a daught er of John and Anna Williams, and they have had the following children: He rshel, who married Clara Mumford, and has six chidren-- Marie, Hazel, Car l, Parker, William and Raymond; Ida, who married William Wray, and has t wo children-Laverne and Maurice; Anna, who married Benjamin Kissinger; Gle ndora, who married Leroy Gross; Jacob, who married Ada Ledgeworth,, daught er of James Ledgeworth; Bessie, who resides at home; Irwin Franklin, w ho is a member of the class of 1910 in Starling Medical College, at Columb us, Ohio; -Marvin, who lives at home; Leroy, who is a student in the Beth el High School; and Margie, who attends Glenwood school in Bethel Townshi p. Mr. Shroyer and family attend the Methodist Episcopal Church. In his po litical views he is a Democrat but he takes no very active interest in pub lic matters and the only office he was ever willing to accept was th at of school director, in former days. He is one of the township's most es teemed and respected citizens

Pg 238 Township Trustee John E Lorton, 1881, 1883, 1884

John LORTON was born in this county, November 10, 1827, and being reared amid scenes of a much more primitive nature than those which now surround his home, he bore such share as a youth might in the work of development which was going on around him. He received a limited education in the early subscription and public schools of the county, the only schoolhouse in which he ever attended being one made of logs. Having an active mind and a desire for knowledge, he has made use of the facilities afforded by the printing-press to keep himself posted, and is mainly self-educated. In 1850 he purchased sixty acres of land, where he now resides, settling upon it in a log house covered with clapboards, living therein several years. He
subsequently erected his present residence, which is well-built and
sufficiently commodious edifice, under whose roof good cheer abounds. He now owns eighty acres of land, all the buildings upon it being good and the other improvements appropriate.

The first marriage of Mr. LORTON took place in 1849, his bride being Miss Elizabeth WAGONER. She bore seven children-John W.; Nancy E.; deceased; Amanda, wife of Wesley XANDER; Emma C., wife of John BAKER; Lewis; Clara, wife of Edward SOUDERS; and Marietta, deceased. The second wife of Mr. LORTON bore the maiden name of Rebecca SWARTZBAUGH, being a daughter of Henry and Lydia SWARTZBAUGH, of this township. This union has been blessed
by the birth of six children: Cora B., Lydia M., Anna M., Luther E., Edgar J. and one who died in infancy. Mr. LORTON served as Township Trustee a number of years with credit to himself and his constituents. He and his good wife belong to the German Reformed Church

[HI30435] (Research):The Virginia Years Little is known about the early years of John Callison. He is of Irish des cent on his father's line but his mother is unknown. There is some thought that Martha McCorkle may have be en his mother but this point needs to be proven. (Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish settlement in Virginia extract ed from the original court records of August County 1745-1800 by Lyman Cha lky. Published by Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, Maryland Page #104. - 1 Sep 1785. Samuel (mark) McCorkle's will, planter- … to daug hter. Martha Callesone) It is assumed that John Jr. was born in Augusta County, Virginia on the known da te of August 5, 1769. (Callison Cemetery, German twp.. Clark County, Oh io John Callison Aug. 5, 1769 Aug 19, 1844) The historical events that took place in the year of John's birth illustra te the progress of different regions of this country. Frontiersman and exp lorer Daniel Boone set his sights on Kentucky after trekking into the west ern wilderness through the Cumberland Gap. Dartmouth College was found ed in Connecticut and moved to New Hampshire the next year. It was the la st of nine colleges established before the American Revolution. In the Cal ifornia territory, Father Junipero Serra founded the first permanent Spani sh settlement. Locally, Virginia delegates followed other colonies and end orsed an agreement that banned the importation of all English trade good s, slaves and many European luxury items until repeal of the Townsend ac t. This act was a series of taxes by Britain on the American colonies on g oods such as glass, lead, paint, paper and tea. This tax was repealed in 1 770 for all goods except tea. (THE ALMANAC OF AMERICAN HISTORY BY Arthur S chlesinger, Jr. Published by Barnes and Noble, Inc. 1993) A few years after John's birth, his father is found in Botetourt County, V irginia, but this county was not formed from Augusta County until 1770. H is grandfather, James Callison, lived in Augusta County at the time of h is birth. (GRANTOR INDEX TO DEEDS AUGUSTA COUNTY VA June 20, 1769 James a nd Isabell CALLISON to Gasper Taylor B & S Book 15 Page 408. Release Pa ge 409) There is no record of his father, John, until 1778 when he is mention ed in a land transaction in Greenbrier County, Virginia. The survey for th is land was taken for John, in 1774. (Greenbrier County, Virginia Janua ry 1, 1778 John Beard is entitled to 400 acres as assignee of William Gilh ison and John Callison to include a survey made for Callison in 1774 adjac ent to William and John Callison). This area of Virginia was being subdivi ded into counties at a rapid rate. Many times in doing research, it is fou nd that the people did not move, the county lines moved. This has challeng ed descendants trying to find records on their ancestors. Greenbrier Coun ty was created by an act of the Virginia General Assembly in October 17 77 from parts of Montgomery and Botetourt Counties (Virginia). It was nam ed in honor of the principal river that drains through the county. It is c onsidered the mother county of southern West Virginia because 11 counti es were created, either in whole or in part, from its original territor There has been no record found for the purchase of John's land in 1774 b ut it was probably in Botetourt County, Virginia. In the year 1778, John C allison, in debt, had a case transferred to the Greenbrier Courts. (Boteto urt County Va. Court Order Book 1776-1780, p. 41, 15 April, 1778, Jacob Wa rwick v. John Callison, in debt, noted as "not executed, transferred to Gr eenbrier docket. John's father participated in the development of this new county by signi ng petitions to improve land sales and to build better roads. (Chalkey Vol ume 2 page 104 November 20, 1781 petition of residents on the north si de of the Greenbrier River requesting a repeal of the Act for a road fr om Camp Union to Warm Springs. John and William Callison, and Arthur McClu re among others. Chalkey Volume. 2 page 168 6-13-1783 Greenbrier County. P etition for a repeal of the law requiring that no grant on settlement or p reemptive rights be issued until 3 Pound per 100 acres be paid to grantee s. Some of the petitioners when first settled in the county signed a petit ion by the late Gen. Lewis, agent to the Greenbrier County, in 1773 to pre serve their land from the claims of officers and soldiers when they threat ened them, but it was their only resource since no land office was open. S igned by John and William Callison, Arthur McClure, among others) John is known to have had two siblings although more are probable. His sis ter, Isabel, appears to have been raised by her grandparents in Augusta Co unty and is the only grandchild mentioned in James Callison will. (Will Bo ok 7 Page 158 Augusta County, Virginia. 1789 James Callison … to my gra nd daughter, Isabella Callison, the daughter of my son John Callison). H er date of birth is unknown except that she was "over 21" when she marri ed in 1801according to her uncle, Robert. (Augusta County, Virginia. Marri age Records This day Robert Callison…. from a personal acquaintance with I sabella Callison daughter of John Callison who is about to intermarry wi th Joseph Evans, ….the said Isabella is past the age of twenty one year s, 25th day of February 1801). The name of John's brother is not known b ut according to tax records, he was born 1766-1771. (Tax list B Greenbri er County, Virginia. 1787- John Callison with 2 males age 16-21. John ov er 21 had 5 horses and 14 cattle. One of these males would be John, subje ct of this book). It is expected that the other male might be named Jam es since the Irish naming custom named the first son for the paternal gran dfather. There is an unknown James Callison in the Greenbrier County recor ds who fits the age group for John's brother. (1820 census Greenbrier Coun ty, Virginia. James Collision Senior. Males: 1 over 45yrs Females: 0 Tot al of 1 in household 1 engaged in agriculture). This James died in 1828 Gr eenbrier County. He named no heirs other than a sister, Betsey Morrison. ( Greenbrier County. Virginia Will Book 1 page 712 James Callison will writt en May 4, 1827 probated 1827…sister Betsy Morrison. Appraisement bill pa ge 750). If James is found to be a brother of John, then he gains a siste r, Elizabeth, also. (Elizabeth Callison born. August 27, 1778. She marri ed James Morrison March 4,1796 Greenbrier County, Virginia and died June 2 4, 1838. Birth and death dates from Hill Cemetery; Pocahontas County, We st Virginia) When John was 7 years old, the American Revolution took place and the Unit ed States of America was established with George Washington as the first p resident. There is no record of his father participating in this battle b ut his grandfather was considered "a Patriot" for supplying provisio ns to the troops. By the time of his death, this new country had seen nine presidents electe d. Chances are that he was able to see one president in person when Hen ry Clay visited Clark County, Ohio on July 24, 1830. John lived near his uncle, William Callison, while he was growing up. (S ee note re: deed of 1778) This land was located in Greenbrier County, prob ably in the CloverVale Valley/Spring Creek area. (GENERAL INDEX TO DEE DS - GREENBRIER COUNTY, Virginia August 11,1786 William Callison and wi fe Agness Book 1 Page 18, 200 acres for 100 Pounds to John Beard. Land abo ve Spring Creek in Clover Vale Valley. Witness. William Renic, William Bro wn and John Callison.) John probably lived with his father in Greenbrier County until 1789 wh en he married Jane McClure (Marriage Record # 1-A page 17 Greenbrier Count y, Virginia. John Callison and Jane McClure were united in marriage by Jo hn Alderson on 19th day of June 1789). That year he had his own tax listi ng as John Callison Jr. According to the 1790 census, Greenbrier County h ad the fourth largest population (6,015) of the nine counties that were th en in existence and fell within the current boundaries of West Virgini a. He and Jane McClure each lived in the same district of Greenbrier as ea rly as 1781. They are listed on tax records in Greenbrier until 1794 wh en his first land purchase was recorded in Bath County, Virginia. at the a ge of 25. (Bath County.

(SIMS LAND GRANTS - Bath County, Virginia John Gallison (Callison) 50 a cres WTS Greenbrier 1801 Book 1 page 88). His father remained on Greenbri er County tax rolls through 1803. In 1804, he is found in Bath County t ax records. There is no land purchase in Bath County for John Sr. and he a nd John Jr. were consistently listed on the same date of the tax collecti on so may have been living in the same household. All adult males over a ge 21 were taxed. (Personal Property Tax Records for Bath County, Virginia 1804 Alex, John Jr., John Sr., April 17,1804 1805 John Jr., John Sr. (2 titheables) April 23, 1805 1806 John Jr. and John Sr. May 12, 1806 1807 John Jr., John Sr. It is possible that Alexander is a brother to John Jr. He married Rebec ca Kellison and went to Ross County, Ohio about the same time John left f or Clark County, Ohio) Father and son were probably pretty self-sufficient living on their lan d. In 1782, John Sr. was taxed on 3 horses and 13 head of cattle. The t ax for this district was not recorded but an approximation from other dist ricts shows that it would have been in the 1/1/3 range or 1 Pound, 1 shill ing and 3 pence. Arthur McClure, father of Jane, had 6 horses and 8 he ad of cattle. Wildlife was abundant for hunting and many streams in the ar ea, for fishing. The cattle probably provided their milk and butter rath er than beef. The farmland may have been used to grow wheat and corn wi th the horse providing labor and transportation. One modern convenien ce in this wilderness area in 1785 was the gristmill powered by the abunda nt water supply in the area. This was needed to grind the corn and whea t. These mills became popular meeting places for the residents. John Jr. w as probably happy with this new mill because up to this point, the grain h ad to be ground by hand. All building, cooking and fireplace logs h ad to be cut and hewn by hand as the area had no sawmills at that time. Th ere were no newspapers in the area that early and it is possible that t he early family did not know how to read and write. The few legal transact ions undertaken by John have been signed with his mark. There were no bank ers and none were needed. The residents used the barter system for their n eeds, neighbors helped neighbors and trust was based on a man's word. (His torical Booklet - Greenbrier County 160th Anniversary - 1778-1938 Publish ed 1938-Excerpts) No records of Baptisms for the children of John Callison Sr. have been fou nd to indicate what religion was being practiced. His father, James, parti cipated in the Presbyterian faith. As John Sr. moved his family to more in accessible regions, ministers and churches probably became a luxury that w as not easily available. It is of interest, though that the minister who m arried John Callison and Jane McClure was John Alderson. Rev Alderson is n oted as founder of the Old Greenbrier Baptist Church, the first chur ch in Greenbrier County. The Old Greenbrier Baptist Church, North Alderso n, was organized on November 24, 1787, with twelve members. (Historical Bo oklet - Greenbrier County 160th Anniversary - 1778-1938 Published 1938 -Ex cerpts) Medicine in those early days was primitive according to today's standard s. There was no knowledge of the cause of many diseases, bacteria and anti sepsis had not yet been discovered. John and his father were probably fami liar with herbal medicines for the treatment of illness and disease preven tion. The main diagnosis in this era was "an excess of body fluids" and t he treatment was getting rid of this fluid by leeching and purgatives (Sal ts). The residents of Greenbrier co. were fortunate to have the many Sulf ur Springs for the treatment of rheumatism disorders. The childhood diseas es that have almost been eradicated through vaccines today were prevale nt in that era. (Historical Booklet - Greenbrier County 160th Anniversa ry - 1778-1938 Published 1938-Excerpts) The fact that John and Jane a nd 8 of their children survived to adulthood is quite a legacy for their d escendants. In January 1809, Elizabeth, the daughter of John and Jane was married to W illiam Buckley in Bath County, Virginia. (Bath County, Virginia Marriage R ecords 1809 John Collison, father, consents for marriage of Elizabeth Call ison to William Buckley) This couple is found in Clark County, Ohio in 18 13 along with John and Jane. John Callison and his family are not found in Virginia after June 1809 wh en Arthur McClure's estate was settled. (Will Book 1, page 262 At the Coun ty Court, Greenbrier County, "Know all men by these presents that we the l egatees of Arthur McClure deceased do hereby certify that we received o ur several legacies at the hand of Samuel McClure as administrator on [th e] estate given under our hands this 21st day of June in the year of our L ord 1809. … Jane Colleson.") John's father was no longer listed in the t ax record after 1808 so it is unknown whether he died or left the are a. No will or estate record has been found for him. It appears that he h ad no land left in Virginia to deed to his heirs. It is not known when t he mother of John Jr. died. There is no wife named in a land transaction f or John Sr. in Greenbrier County in 1786.(GENERAL INDEX TO DEEDS - GREENBR IER COUNTY, VA September17,1786 George Kincaid 200 acres by order, from Jo hn Collison adjacent to William Renick) By the time John and Jane moved to Ohio, the country had doubled in size t hrough the Louisiana Purchase and Lewis and Clark had explored the route f rom the St. Louis, Missouri area to the Pacific Ocean. North Carolina, Ken tucky, Tennessee and, lastly in 1803, Ohio had been granted statehood. T he 13 original colonies now numbered 17 states. The 1810 census for Ohio was burned so there is no census record for th em in 1810 but other documents support their early arrival in Ohio. John d id not sell his land in Bath County until he was in Ohio and contrary to m ost land sales, Jane was not mentioned with him.

The Ohio Years

(Article by Dr. Archibald Hopkins, of Harrisonburg, Va., for his son, D r. William Davis Hopkins..) "From 1800 to 1860 emigration and immigration were the order of the day. T he sons of farmers and others, descendants of early settlers, were entic ed away by the low price of rich lands in the West, Kentucky, Ohio, Indian a, Illinois, and Missouri. Often whole families sold out and left in sear ch of new homes near the frontier of civilization. Sometimes several famil ies went together, to form a congenial neighborhood. These emigrants pack ed in wagons their provisions, clothing, bedding, and such cherished artic les as they could not leave behind, and spent weeks on the road, carryi ng their food with them, and camping out at night. Some of these family fl ights involved much hardship and suffering, as the way was rough, roa ds in some places being not much more than trails through the wildernes s. They had no springs to their wagons, and probably the most comfortab le way of traveling was horseback. Many a woman has gone hundreds of mil es in the saddle, carrying her baby in her lap, through heat and cold, ra in and snow, with clothing that we would think utterly insufficient; cross ing rivers and climbing mountains, and yet living to tell her children a nd grandchildren of the pleasures and perils of the journey. " The rou te of migration can only be guessed at but almost certainly included a wat er route and a land route. Travel in this time was mostly by flatbed boa ts and covered wagons over dirt trails." It is likely that John and Jane traveled via Gallia County. Ohio where Joh n's Uncle William was living at the time. "During the first decade of 180 0, the journey from Franklinton, on the Scioto, to Springfield, (Clark Cou nty) took about 4 ½ days, a distance of forty-two miles. In crossing Big D arby they were obliged to carry all their goods on horseback, and th en to drag their wagon across with ropes, while some of the party sw am by the side of the wagon to prevent it from upsetting. . The early sett lers were unequaled for their kindness, honesty and hospitality." (Howe 's Historical Collection of Ohio written by Henry Howe, Published by The S tate of Ohio, C.J. Krehbiel & Co., Printers and Binders Cincinnati, Ohio 1 888) It can be determined from census records that John and Jane had all ni ne of their known children before they left Virginia. At the time of the m ove, these children would have ranged from age 2 to 20. It appears that th ere was considerable travel and communication among kin in distant communi ties. Families followed each other to new territories and children from di fferent areas ended up marrying each other. Land was bought and sold betwe en relatives in different counties. People who had to "go back home" for a ny reason, hand carried messages from all the neighbors, to their differe nt families and friends. Champaign County, Ohio was probably chosen as John and Jane's new home bec ause John Morris (son of his aunt, Jane Callison Morris) had been there si nce about 1805.(Morris, John first purchased land in what was lat er to be German twp.., Clark County., Ohio in December 6, 1805 . This la nd was in Section 18 twp. 4 Range 9. A plat map indicates that Secti on 18 was joining Section 24 where John Callison purchased his land. Jo hn and Jane moved to the area of Champaign County that would become Cla rk County in 1818. John sold his two tracts of land in Bath County in 18 11 where it was listed that he was from "Champaign County, Ohio" verifyi ng that is was the same John. (1811 Deed Book 5 page 430. Bath County, Vir ginia the 9th day of October 1811 between John Callison of the County of C hampaign and state of Ohio of the first part and Patrick Constantine of t he County of Bath for the sum of 100 pound, two certain tracts in the coun ty of Bath and waters of Greenbrier River, one containing 120 acres fir st granted to John Tharp by patent dated 21 March 1789 by him convey ed to said John Callison and..... the 2nd, 50 acres granted to said John C allison by patent dated April 2, 1801 lying in County of Bath and joini ng the above survey.) John obtained his first land in Ohio in 1814 for the minimum purchase of 1 60 acres at $2/per acre. At that time, most land was paid for over sever al years with his acreage finally becoming his in 1814. (Perhaps he used t he money from the sale of his property in Virginia to finance this land) T he prevailing method of payment at the time was a result of the first cred it act designated by Congress on May 10, 1800. It provided that the entrym an (buyer) would make a deposit of five percent of the purchase price, inc luding surveying fees, on the day of the sale. Within 40 days the entrym an had to pay an additional twenty- percent of the purchase money. Additio nal payments of twenty-five percent of the purchase price were to be ma de within two, three, and four years after the day of sale. Interest of s ix percent a year was charged for the last three payments. ("OHIO LAN DS A SHORT HISTORY" http://www.history.rootsweb.com/~ohio-lands/ohlands.ht ml) In 1812, William the son of John and Jane died at the age of 16. He was bu ried on their property in an area later deeded to the state by descendan ts for the present day Callison Cemetery. The Callison family members were active participants in the War of 1812 wi th all of them serving in the same unit. His sons, Charles and James, we re probably too young to serve ROLL OF CAPT.

Arthur Collison Privates Callison, John, Sr., Callison, John, Jr., Elliott, Thomas; Overpe ck, William This war was fought with an almost all Volunteer army so there are no enli stment records from which to gain genealogical information. John Callis on must have been closely connected with Jeremiah Sims in addition to a ll of his family serving under him. Jeremiah Sims was buried in the Callis on cemetery with John and James Callison witnessing his will.

A pers uasive lobbyist went to Chillicothe where the legislature was in sessio n. Competing with Springfield to become the county seat was New Boston. T he Lobbyist enlisted a majority support for Springfield and won by two vot es. When the news reached Springfield the citizenry, assembled at a publ ic house, burned tar barrels and dealt "pretty freely with spirits" observ ed one chronicler. The first tax in the newly organized Clark County, was collected on proper ty, horses etc. in 1818. John Callison was one of those listed on this t ax record in Clark County, Ohio.

XIV No 2 1996 Pa ge 15 - Years 1818-1824 Clark County, Ohio tax list for Section. 24, tw p. 4, Range 9 NE 165 acres John Callison) It appears that he was participating in the Methodist faith in this ear ly time period. (HISTORY OF CLARK CO. OHIO BY BEERS 1881 PAGE 687 GERMAN T OWNSHIP "The Methodists built a log church 1820 just over the line of Cham paign County. One of the preachers was John Callison) The marriage recor ds that we have on his children showed that Saul Henkle married some of th em. He was Springfield's first permanent minister, having arrived in the a rea in 1809, an ordained Methodist Episcopal Minister. The ability to read and write, by their children, must have been importa nt to John and Jane. The three children found in the 1850 census (Arthu r, Charles and Sabina) could all read and write. Charles, Arthur and Jo hn Jr. all have hand written wills recorded. By 1820 when the first census is found for Ohio, John and Jane were livi ng in their house in German twp., with only Charles, James and Sabina. (18 20 Census German Township, Clark County, Ohio John Callison Sr. with 2 peo ple engaged in agriculture) John Jr. and his family lived next door to the m. Arthur Callison had married and become a widower with a young son and t hen remarried by this time. Arthur had been in Jackson County, Ohio f or a brief period in 1816. This first census of Clark County showed 285 ma les and 325 females for a population of 610. The census showed 94 hous es in the county, eight general stores, a flourmill, a cotton mill, a wool en and carding mill, printing office and a post office. His daughter, Martha, and her husband Thomas Elliott had moved to Jacks on County, Ohio by 1820 but by 1830 were back in Clark County. William a nd Elizabeth Buckley have not been found in 1820 but may have been in Jack son County where they eventually settled permanently. By the 1820 censu s, Jackson County, Ohio had a population of 3,746 people. The Kanawha Tra ce crossed the Ohio River at Gallipolis and settlers from Eastern Pennsylv ania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware and Virginia came to Jackson County v ia Greenbrier County, Virginia. In fact, nearly the whole of eastern Jacks on County. could be termed "Little Greenbrier" since the greater numb er of the early settlers either came from Greenbrier or through Greenbrie r. (Annals of Jackson County, Ohio Volume. P page 1) John lived long enough to see the first street lamps erected in 1825. He a nd Jane probably took their children and grandchildren to Springfield to s ee such a wonder. Johnny Appleseed came through the area in 1830 planti ng apple trees, which may have been the inspiration for Charles (son of Jo hn and Jane) to plant an orchard on John's original property. (Last will a nd testament of Charles Callison July 31, 1869 Clark County, Ohio.. to inc lude all the land west of the east line of a young orchard planted on t he south half of my home farm, this devise being a front of the farm on wh ich I reside in German Township, Clark County, Ohio) By the time of the 1830 census of Clark County, Sabina was the only chi ld still living at home. (1830 census German twp.., Clark County, Ohio Jo hn Callison) John Jr. had gone to Delaware County, Indiana and William a nd Elizabeth Buckley had moved to Jackson County, Ohio where Samuel McClur e, brother to Jane McClure Callison, was settled. Thomas and Martha Ellio tt had returned to Clark County by this year. John and Jane's last child S abina was married in October and Jane McClure Callison died in Decemb er of this year. James married in 1822 and was living next door to his sis ter, Martha Elliot. The National Road opened in 1832 and Springfield beca me a crossroad for those moving westward into Indiana. It carved a route j ust south of Delaware County, Indiana and may have been the route that Jam es Callison traveled when he left Clark County to join his brother, John J r. ("The Federal highway system began in 1811 with the construction of the Na tional Road, the only interstate to be completely funded by the national g overnment. Cumberland was chosen for its staring point. The construction t echniques and road bed design were the best of their time. Large stones we re topped by very fine, precisely measured gravel. In 1834, ownership w as transferred to the states, and in 1839 the road reached its end at Vand alia, IL. Its major contribution was to help populate the west providi ng a route almost to the Mississippi. Traffic was permitted during constru ction, mainly because the flow of people could not be stopped. To pay f or the road's maintenance, the states set up tollbooths. The National Ro ad is now Route 40" http://rongo.ce.jhu.edu/mdcive/road.htm) 1834 was a difficult year for farmers in Clark County, Ohio Charles, s on of John, was among a group of farmers who signed a petition to resto re the public Deposits and recharter the Bank of the United States. "To st rangers unacquainted with its peculiar locality, it will not be deemed o ut of place to remark that the wealth of our county consists almost entire ly in its agricultural productions, the principal part of it soil being de voted to the cultivation of wheat, which article may justly be consider ed the staple of the county. The soil, climate, and other natural cause s, combine to render this section of the County peculiarly favorable for t he production of wheat of a good quality. The fine streams which flow thor ough our valley, have as yet, been converted to no other purpose than t he manufacturing of our wheat into flour, thus affording to the farmer a c onstant and ready market for the chief production of his farm. This mu ch we have thought it necessary to preface, in order to show the sour ce of the little wealth we possess. But the blight and the mildew have fal len upon us, and threaten to overwhelm us, and all with whom we are connec ted, in one general ruin. The poor man who a few short months since deem ed himself secure from all danger, inasmuch as, with the produce of his f ew acres of wheat, he had that which rendered him independent of the worl d, will now with a heavy heart tell you, that, to save his all, he cann ot raise a few dollars to pay a needy creditor, because that in which he p laced his sole dependence, that which was laid up in store to wipe out o ld scores, and to replenish his stock of family stores for the ensuing sea son, has failed him; his wheat is at the mill, but the miller cannot bu y; his wheat has been manufactured into flour, but the flour will not p ay for the producing, and manufacturing, and hauling to a market already g lutted with an unsaleable article. In truth, he could tell you, that the o ld saying indicative of the pecuniary responsibility of a man, 'he is as g ood as wheat at the mill," is no longer true; for wheat is no longer the s tandard of wealth. We pray, therefore, that the public moneys of the Unit ed States be restored to the safe keeping of the Bank of the United Stat e; and that Congress do extend the resent charter of the Bank of the Unit ed States, to such term of time and with such modification, as may seem wi se and expedient in view of the general good of our common country. " (M ay 19, 1834 23rd Congress, 1st Session House of Representatives, Doc. No 4 53) John sold 80 of his 160 acres of land to John Jr. in 1828 for $500 and t he remaining 80 acres to Charles in 1839 for $1000. No mention is ma de in the deed about John living with Charles until he died but the 1840 c ensus documents John living in the household with Charles and his famil y. By this time or this census, Elizabeth had died in 1831 in Jackson Coun ty, Ohio; John Jr. had died in 1837 in Delaware County, Indiana; Martha h ad died in 1835 Clark County, Ohio, James had moved to Indiana and no ment ion found after 1840; Jane had died in 1838 Clark County,, Ohio and Sabi na had moved to Hocking County, Ohio. Arthur and Charles remained his on ly living children still in Clark County with him. The cause of death is u nknown for these people but in 1833 there was a recorded epidemic of chole ra in the Columbus, Ohio area.

One possibly for ancestry for Arthur that needs investigating is The McClure Family by JAMES ALEXANDER McCLURE: Among the names of the men who pain Hearth Tax in the parish of Raphoe 16 65 were two John McClures of Augheygalt. Elders listed from Raphoe, 1672-1700 listed John, Arthur and Richard. Rich ard McClure, from the north of Ireland, settled about 1725 in Paxtang twp. ., then Lancaster, now York County., Pennsylvania. Four sons were bo rn in Ireland ; Thomas, Charles, John and Richard. Charles died prior to 1761, leaving sons ARTHUR, William, John and Charles.

So possible line of descent is Richard, Charles and then Arthu r. It is of interest that Arthur named a son Charles and that Jane McClu re Callison also named a son Charles, a name not used previously in the Ca llison family.

[HI30436] (Research):Continued notes for John Callison... John did not live long enough to see the first train come through Springfield in 1846 but surely had been caught up in the anticipation of this even t. Depending on the route of the train, it may have been helpful for his d escendants to travel back and forth from Ohio to Indiana. John died in 1844 and is buried in the Callison cemetery. His grave is lis ted in ROSTER AND BURIAL PLACES OF DECEASED VETERANS OF ALL WARS FROM Cla rk County You will not find any Biography written about John Callison in h istory books. He was a farmer who possibly could not even read or writ e. He left no will or monetary estate for his descendants nor did he appe ar to leave any debts. He served his country when needed and pastored h is fellow man in his faith. He lived to the age of 75 when the life expect ancy 150 years after his birth was only 54 years. ("The World Almanac a nd Book of Facts", 1997, p.973, life expectancy in the US was 54.1 years f or those born in 1920.) In the 1840 census, the population of Clark Coun ty was 16, 882 but there were only 90 men over the age of 70. He endured s adness in his later years, outliving his wife and six of his nine childre n. He did not live to see the Civil War when so many of his descendants fo ught against their Callison cousins who remained in the south. We, as h is descendants, can be proud of the heritage we were left by this farmer a nd his wife.

Notes by Marilyn Jensen from her trip to Salt Lake City January 2009
John Overpeck is listed in Orange co., VA tax records from 1796 to 1802. Elizabeth (his wife) is listed there in 1803. I got?a list of his goods appraised after his death that I'll type up when I get home. Could not find anything on the sale of his goods. No Bible listed Anyway back to tax records We know that the Argabright family moved from Rockingham Co, VA to Montgomery Co., VA in 1802 and in 1803, George?Overpeck shows up there also. He married in 1803 Orange Co., VA. He is listed through 1807 and Elizabeth is also listed in 1807. That is their last listing in Montgomery Co. Joseph and Margaret Overpeck (sister to George) Argabright stayed in Montgomery Co with his family and after Joseph died in 1832, Margaret moved to Clark Co where the other Overpecks had settled. I don't know if Elizabeth died in Montgomery Co or if she went to Ohio also. Anyway, One goal down -- tons to go. Take care all, Marilyn

[NI30458] 20th CENTURY HISTORY OF SPRINGFIELD AND Clark County, Ohio AND REPRESENTATIVE CITIZENS by Rockel published 1908 Page 1034-1035
William H. BURTON, a general farmer, stock raiser and dairyman of Bethel Township, Clark County, Ohio, residing on a well improved farm of 189 acres, situated about seven miles west of Springfield, was born July 6, 1856, on his father's farm in Gallia County, Ohio, and is a son of James and Armenta (BLANKENSHIP) BURTON.
James BURTON and his wife were both natives of Virginia, where they were married. He was a collier by trade, which occupation he followed for the greater part of his life. He came to Scioto County, Ohio, in his later years, and settled on a small farm, where he resided until his death, at the age of seventy-eight. Eleven children were born to James BURTON and wife, namely; Janette, Sally Jane, James, Harvey, Ruth L., Isaac Milton, Amanda, wife of Asa CANDER, Nathaniel, George Riley, Eliza Jane, wife of Thomas McGILVERY, Harvey M. and William H. the subject of this sketch. The five first mentioned are now deceased, as also is Harvey M.
William BURTON was reared on his father's farm in Scioto County, and for a short time attended the district schools. At the age of twenty he went west, to Hastings, Minnesota, and worked for some time in a wheat elevator and at various other odd jobs, remaining there for twenty-two months. Then he returned to Scioto County, Ohio, for a short time, after which he came to Clark County and worked by the month on various farms in the county. He continued thus occupied for some time after his marriage, and then rented the Charles THOMAS farm in German Twp.. for three years, after which he rented the DEMORMANDIE farm for one year, moving thence to the Peter EBERSOLE farm, which he operated for five years. He then lived for one year on the SIPES farm, near Urbana, and in November, 1906, bought his present farm of 189 acres from the Wittenberg College estate, where he has since been engaged in general farming, stock-raising and dairying, and is recognized as one of Bethel Township's most enterprising and successful farmers.
Mr. BURTON was united in marriage December 27, 1883 to Clara Belle CALLISON, who was born October 5, 1841,in German Twp.. and who is a daughter of Jacob and Margaret Jane (ARGABRIGHT) CALLISON, who came to this county from Virginia. Mrs. BURTON was the eldest of a family of five children, namely: Clara Belle, Lucinda Jane, widow of Fred WERT, Charles A., John M. and George, the three last mentioned being now deceased. Her mother is still living. Nine children were born to Mr. and Mrs. BURTON as follows: Lawrence E., Ira A., Clifford J., Joseph D., William Russell, who died aged fourteen months, James Dwight, George H., Elsie M. and Nellie I.
Politically Mr. BURTON is a Prohibitionist, but was formerly a Republican. Both he and his wife are members of the German Baptist Brethren Church.

[HI30494] (Research):With permission of Marilyn Hansen 1/7/2005 He married his first wife, Eva Shroader, in Clark County, Oh on Dec 14, 18 93 at the age of 21. They had one son, Howard William, born on Dec 9, 189 6. Grandpa hid from all of us the fact that he had been married previousl y, never spoke Eva's name nor were we aware that he had a son until someti me in the late 1940's. Consequently, the only information that we have abo ut Eva was from Grandpa's sisters, Grace Young of Wisconsin and Katie Be am of Washington. Katie's daughter, Mick Beam Watkins, personally knew E va and liked her in spite of her short comings. Whatever the circumstanc es that caused James to leave his wife and child, he did ask her to bri ng their son and go west with him for a new start. She declined and divorc ed him in June 1900, probably for abandonment. She subsequently married th ree more times. Ironically, James' sisters in Ohio helped raise Howar d. It is so sad that Grandpa Jim never saw nor heard from his son again. W hen my mother discovered that she had a half-brother in Ohio (bless my great aunts hearts for their persistence in "encouraging" their brother to "confess all" to his wife and daughter), she immediately contacted her aun ts in Springfield and made swift contact with Howard. Howard had kno wn of Mother for some years, but was unable to disclose his identity to h er because of his dad's persistent stubborness. There was a flurry of lett er writing, gifts exchaged and plans made for Howard to come west to me et his family and be reunited with his father. Just before the plans ca me to fruition, in Sept 1954, Howard had a massive heart attack and di ed at the age of 58. He was buried in Ferncliff Cemetery Clark County, Oh io next to his third wife, Marie. I am sure that a great burden was lifted from Grandpa Jim's shoulders at t his disclosure. But it is sad that we will never know Howard's two childre n, cousins Joe (who had also passed on) and Jeanne, who married and mov ed to the west coast some years ago."

[NI30499] Father: Michael Thomas Mother: Elizabeth Turnpaugh

From Marilyn Jenses
My great grandfather, Sylvester Thomas, wrote an autobiography so as I was reading over it last night to see if he made any mention of his stepmother -- Sarah Beatty Miller Thomas -- I was finally able to make some connections. This is what makes genealogy so addicting. Sylvester married Marietta HECK, daughter of Rezin HECK and Malinda ALLEN
His story:
" But I kept on with the girls and found out that Cash Martin had a cousin he wanted me to go with. Her name was Marietta Heck and I kept going with her until I found that I was not contented with any other girl. We decided that we wanted to get married but her father objected
saying that we were too young to get into all the responsibility that came with married life. I guess he was right but we did not think about the undertaking. we waited for awhile then in June 14, 1877 we were married by Rev. Wilkinson of the First Baptist Church, Springfield, Ohio. Mr. Ervin, a neighbor, engaged the Rev. for me on Thursday at four at her father and mothers house. Those present were: James Kiplinger, Joe James, Sabina Ebersole, Zettie Miller, Martha Ebersole, and Cassius Martin, and also Mr. and Mrs. Tom Lutz.
So Cash Martin is AKA Cassius Martin so I was curious how Marietta HECK was a cousin of Cassius MARTIN
Oh now I know because Marietta's mom (Melinda) was an Allen and a sister of Cassius's mother.(Sarah)
James Kiplinger was the son of Rebecca ALLEN, sister to Melinda and Sarah
Joe James was the son of Phoebe ALLEN, sister to Melinda and Sarah
Sabina and Martha Ebersole were the daughters of Mary HECK, sister of Rezin
Zettie Miller is probably Rosetta , d/o Sarah, who went on to marry Cassius Martin
This exercise was a BLAST. Some of the people in Sylvester's story were nice to him and some were not so nice -- . This was from a little boys perspective. His mom died when he was small and he was farmed "literally" out to relatives -- some in Indiana and some in Clark Co.
Here are his CLark Co. memories
I was left at my sisters house until the fall of 1869. My dad had married a woman, who had lived near Donnelsville In Bethel Township, Clark County, Ohio in June. He took me to Muncie, Indiana in March 1869 to live with Uncle Price Thomas. Both my Uncle and Aunt were good to me. The following October my father came and brought me to Ohio to live with him. My father raised a lot of horses as most all farmers did at that age. There was a colt I wanted to ride so my father said I could and told me not to be gone very long ' I went to some boys houses and there were six of us. I was gone longer than I thought as the time went fast. My dad waited for me and when I rode into the barnyard he said nothing. But when I had put the colt into the lot he said "I'll teach you to stay away so long" and said that my younger brother had wanted to take a ride. My father took hold of me and gave me a few strokes. This was the first time he had struck me and he said he was sorry because my step-mother said he cried.
The whipping didn't hurt me but I was offended and after dark I gathered up all my clothes and started for the west, having Illinois as my destination. I got as far as Donnelsville. A boy told me he would go with me but he didn't ever meet me. Then my dad found me I and pleaded with me to come back home but I told him that I wouldn't so he pulled out his bankbook with money to pay my way as I had no money, but I didn't take it. I thought the matter over after he quit pleading with me but I was determined to go west. He left by shaking my hand and saying good bye with tears in his eyes that he could not hold back any longer. I intended to hitch-hike my way and go from house to house for
something to eat. I was fourteen years old at this time and several men and boys tried to talk to me. So after thinking a lot about it I decided to stay at home for a while. So late that night I slipped into the house and went to bed thinking of the sorrow I had caused my father and stepmother who had been so good to me. The following morning my father asked me what I expected to do and I told him that I intended to hunt a place to work to make some money for myself..He said he would talk to Abe Heistand and try to get me a job with him.
I started working for Abe at thirteen dollars a month and my dad collected the money. He bought me my everyday clothes, but soon the time came when I wanted a good suit for Sunday. So I started working a little,,on the side to earn the money to get a suit. Finally I saved up about half enough to buy one. So I went to Tom Snider's where they sold suits. I told Tommy that I had about half enough for a suit and asked him if he would trust me for the balance. He did so I got my Suit. I worked for Abe until my time was out and then cut corn for him by the shock and for Wes Hicks. Then I cut ten acres of corn for Joe Neff. I cut some at home for my dad then helped Abe shuck corn. After we had finished this I started to school at Bethel. Then in the year 1875 I worked for Christ Heistand for fourteen dollars a month. Mr. and Mrs. Heistand and their children went east to see Christ's people. They left me to do the work and Mrs. Heistand's mother and the hired girl to do the housework. When Heistands came back I gave them more money. I had to haul wood and took the best wood to market in Springfield. After my time was up there I cut corn for Bennetts and Jim Shay cut with me. When we were finished Mr. Bennett paid Jim but did not pay me. He was having a public sale and on the day of the sale Mister Smith Wallace told Mr. Bennett he would have to pay me what he owed me. So after a dispute he finally paid me.
Then I started to school again and Ezra Myers was my teacher. On Saturdays I did some grubbing under brush in clearing for Christ Heistand. I went to school until January 26th, then I started for Indiana. I wanted to hunt work for the spring. I went to my sister's Mrs. Wilhite, at Jamestown, Indiana. Then got work about two miles west of Jamestown helping to saw oak timber for barrel staves for Mr. Gardner who had made a contract with some firm in Indianapolis for several thousands of barrel staves. I worked for this man for four days for four dollars. I quit on Saturday at noon because he would not hire me for the spring and summer for eighteen dollars a month. I went to my sister's at Jamestown, Mrs. Wilhite.
After I stayed there for awhile I went to my other sister, Susan Burk, about thirty miles west, near Waintown. I was there about four weeks then there I got into trouble with a man by the name of Nelson Burk. He claimed I had traded overcoats with him. My sister would not let me trade with him. My overcoat was better than his. Then he got mad and attempted to harm me, so my brother in-law and he had a fight in his yard on Sunday morning. The following day they told me to have him arrested so I did. The Squire at the trial said that I could have shot him and that the law would have exonerated me. The man was over twenty-one years old and I was a minor, being just nineteen. He died soon after and I hope his soul was saved.
I then went to my cousin's, Jim Bateral, and helped him saw wood and do other odd jobs. One day he went to a public sale and saw James Clarkson, who lived near New Richmond, Indiana, hiring me out to him at eighteen dollars a month. I worked my time out and he owed me for all three months for the exception of ten dollars I had gotten.
The first of July, 1876 I came back to Ohio. I started going with the girls. We boys in the neighborhood thought it would be fun if we gave a party, so we did. The boys asked me to do the inviting and there was a certain girl we wanted to the party. I to went to her house and was told she was picking berries. I went to the berry patch and told her we were going to have a party and that we would like to have her with us. She told me she wouldn't go to our party. Well what was I to say but "has ha"? I told her she thought she was above the rest of us and that maybe it would be better If she didn't come. We had our party and it was a lively and happy one too.
I worked for Abe Heistand for fifty cents a day. I helped get the timber out of his woodland for the building of his barn. When Henry Sultzbaugh, the barn builder, came to do the framing of the barn, I was hired to him to help build and frame the barn at fifty cents a day and board. We were twenty days getting the barn under cover. John Baker was the foreman when the barn was ready to shingle and they told me I should help shingle. SoI went up on the roof and laid a few shingles and then hit my thumb with the hatchet and mashed it. Then a man called me to do some work in the barn making stalls for the horses and working in the cow stable. I did this..and then we saw a balloon come from the north. We stopped work to watch it move slowly on its way. We could hear the passengers laughing and talking very plain as they passed over us. There was a bride and groom In it and were on their honeymoon. This was in August 1876. After the balloon passed us we returned to our work, but this balloon was the talk of the neighborhood for a long time. I continued working for Abe the rest of the fall. I started to school but Abe asked me to take Lucy, his horse, and the buggy and take the girls out for a ride, and this interfered with my schoolwork. But I kept on with the girls and found out that Cash Martin had a cousin he wanted me to go with. Her name was Marietta Heck and I kept going with her until I found that I was not contented with any other girl. We decided that we wanted to get married but her father objected
saying that we were too young to get into all the responsibility that came with married life. I guess he was right but we did not think about the undertaking. we waited for awhile then in June 14, 1877 we were married by Rev. Wilkinson of the First Baptist Church, Springfield, Ohio. Mr. Ervin, a neighbor, engaged the Rev. for me on Thursday at four at her father and mothers house. Those present were: James Kiplinger, Joe James, Sabina Ebersole, Zettie Miller, Martha Ebersole, and Cassius Martin, and also Mr. and Mrs. Tom Lutz. Then the ceremony was performed. We had supper and had lots to eat. There were about 75 people there to bell us and give their best wishes. Cash Martin passed the cigars and candy
to the serenaders and then all went home happy and in good cheer.
The following day we went on our honeymoon to my sister, Mrs. Joe Weavers, near St. Paris, Then after our honeymoon we came back to her fathers home and stayed for about eight months, March 1878. We then went to
housekeeping on my father-in-laws farm, it was 55 acres and near Tecumseh
School on National Road. I farmed here for one third of what I raised both wheat and corn. I had worked all winter for my father-in-law and he had not given me a dollar so I didn't have any money to go to housekeeping on when we did so that it was hard to keep anything to eat let alone anything to wear. But the wheat and corn crop helped us out.
Then we had an addition to our little family, Gracie was born on October 1, 1878..Malinda Allen did the house work for six weeks at three dollars a week and we had the money to pay her. The midwife was Aunt Rebecca Keplinger. But Etta, my wife, took a back set and we had to call Dr. Folic of Donnelsville. He made several trips to see her until we owed him ten dollars. We got along all right until one day my father-in-law said I would have to furnish all my own horses and farm implements and that I would have to give half the crops we raised. We had to have another horse so we mustered up enough to buy Charlie a three year old and he was broke well to work. The crops were good and we got ahead so that the following year we put one hundred dollars in the bank. That fall Henry Gorden husked corn for me at eight cents a shock. After corn was in the crib I cut firewood for the next year and after this was finished it was time to start the spring work.
Now it is 1880, we did our work without hiring only in wheat cutting
and hay making and we were making money and saving a little money as we
went along. Then in November we had a son and named him Horace James. Mrs. Tilton of Donnelsville did the house work for us and Aunt Rebecca Keplinger was the midwife.
In the spring of 1881 I farmed several acres of corn. Then in November we had much grief. The baby was a little over a year old and he was cradling on the floor when the stove leg broke. The teakettle of boiling hot water spilled on him and scalded him. We called the doctor immediately but Dr. Ezra Meyers came too late to save him and he died the following morning on Nov.20. I had my corn gathered and in the crib and then In January I hauled It to the Hains elevator for shipment and some to a mill that made meal of it. The roads were so icy I could hardly keep the wagon on the road.
In 1882 we put some money in the bank and I rented some ground from Sam Detrick. We got along that summer and fall and every thing was good for most farmers. Farmers exchanged work with their neighbors to save hiring help.
(Then follows a detailed account of a"trial in which Sylvester served on the jury.)
In 1883,.I became ill with information of the bowels, now called appendicitis. Dr. Meyers was called and he said I was a sick man and needed someone to take care of me. On the way back to his office he stopped at Sam Detrick and asked him If he would stay with me. He and my dad were there and everything went alright. Then about three o'clock in the morning when everyone had gone to bed terrible pains came over me. I called for help and Sam pumped so hard he fainted and fell to the floor. My dad came to help me but I told him to see what was wrong with Sam, so he lifted him to a chair and Sam was not well all the next day. Dr. Myers was called again to see me early the following morning. Examining me he said he could do nothing further for me and told the folks to call in another doctor. So Dr. Kay of Springfield was called. He was the family doctor of my mother-in -law. Dr. Meyers came now and then and he told me that he had given me enough morphine to kill seven men and still I wasn't at ease. Then both doctors came and went into another room, then came to my bed and put pillows to my back and raised my knees until my face was almost touching them. They left the room saying if I lived until twelve o'clock that night I would get well. I was that sick and so near death and still here I am at 82 years old. I laid in bed six weeks before was allowed to get up. That spring and summer I had to hire a boy, George Weaver, to do the work on the farm and spent a good deal of the money We had saved. Wheat was not much good and corn wasn't a big yield.
In 1884 there was a little money in the milk business so in August of that year,I bought a milk route, out of Springfield. Jake Fieffer delivered for me but in starting I lost many of the customers because I was not acquainted with the streets of the city. But then I started delivering and in the conclusion of it all regained some of the former customers. This business did not satisfy me but I stayed in it for about four Years. Then made a public sale of my stock. Then moved to the west end of Springfield but didn't like living in the city so we bought twenty-two acres with house east of Donnelsville. Stayed there until 1896 and we had worked harder than we ever had in all our lives, and then we lost all we had.
In 1896 we moved to my father-in-law's farm of a hundred and nine acres. My two sons were now old enough to do hard work and so we were getting along fine. But In 1904, on August 18th our barn caught on fire and burned to the ground with five good horses and all contents In the barn, it was full of hay and farm implements. I received five hundred dollars insurance and my loss was fourteen hundred dollars. So I started buying horses. Everyone asked from $15O to $200 for them but Will Burton had two good old horses he offered to me for a hundred for the team. Then had an auction sale and after we had eight hundred dollars worth sold we stopped the sale because everything was going so low.
In 1905 my wife's father sold us sixty acres and we gave our note for $4,200., We had enough money to build a barn and had it ready for fall crops. In 1906, my father died on the 21st of Jan. It was a nice sunny,day on which he was buried. In 1907 Otto was 22 years old and he worked for Swartzbaugh by the month. Charles and myself did the farming and other work on the farm and had good wheat, hay and corn drops. We milked ten or twelve cows and sold the milk to the Springfield Pure Milk Co. We got our wheat sowed in good time in the last part of September and the first of October we had all the corn cut and in shock ready to start husking corn. )In February 2nd,1908 my wife's father took sick and I myself was asked to be at his home to wait on him. He had gangrene in his left foot and he died on the 27th of July. Then my wife was ill for the rest of the summer. We bought a milk route and delivered to the Pure Milk Co. We hauled every day for more than two years and then Charles, my youngest son was getting ready to go to Canada. So I had no help and in the end Harley Smith bought me out.
I was then hired to solicit among the farmers for the Pure Milk Co. This was in 1913 the year so many lives were taken in the flood. Mr. Glass did our farming until Charles came back from Canada. He was now thirty years old and in 1917 he got married and in 1918 he rented another farm and moved on it. I thus being left alone I had been selling real estate since 1914 but quit it In this year.
We got a man to farm by the field and we took care of our share. We did this for several years, John Pencil did the farm work till the fall of 1933 then in October 12, my wife died after suffering almost two long years and Charles' wife, Florence, washed and laid her out. Florence had been with her nursing her for several weeks before her death. The Doom Bros. undertakers of New Carlisle said she was the cleanest corpse he had ever looked at. The burial was at Enon Cemetery and the minister was Rev. Manning. It was October 15 after she was buried that I came home, left alone in the house that we had lived in together so long, where we had courted and even where we were married 56 years before. I went to Muncie to see my brother Henry and my sister and husband Joe Weaver.
I then rented the farm on halves and Ollie Thomas was the first to rent it. He farmed It until 1935 then bought a farm east of New Carlisle. The next
renters were Mr. and Mrs Varner. they stayed till February 1936 and moved
then because there was a terrible snow and freezing weather in January and the children had to go to school on the school bus. And Paulines legs were frozen and Betty and Junior were nearly frozen. Mr. Varner and Orfa didn't get home that night. Then Delongs moved in from south of New Carlisle. They lived there for one year then rented the whole farm cash rent to Mr. and Mrs. Tippy. Their lease expired February 28, 1939.
I then gave a deed to the buyer of the farm, Mr. and Mrs. Wilhelm Maurer the 6th of January 1939. We had lived on the farm 42 years and It had been in the family since 1828. Mr. and Mrs. Maurer are now ready to move on the farm.
I am now in Dayton with my youngest son Charles and his wife, Florence and his two daughters Vera and Frances. My son and his wife are very good to me but of course we can't tell what is before us, and we hope for the better which encourages us to live our best and for the good that we may do to others. We have learned the merciful man doeth good to his own soul.
My note: and kids think they have it hard now. In reading this again, I find that his Ohio memories were mostly of good people and the ones who mistreated him were in Indiana -- mostly spouses of his siblings. Take care. Mariliyn

William Haw es Administrator. Witness Charles Buroker, Joseph Buroker. Signed 5 Oct 18 89

David first purchased land in Section 17 (Adams Township) from Lewis Evan s, Rhoda's brother. This land was for 40 ¾ acres located on the east si de of the south-east quarter (Deed Book H, Page 460). No deed is on file in the Recorder's Office to David Conner for the west h alf of the east half of the south-east quarter, even though he was holdi ng that land by the 1860s. Benjamin Evans Sr. had purchased the entire sou th-east quarter from Jacob Yutzler on 15 Dec 1828 (Deed Book H, Page 406 ). One imagines that David purchased from the heirs of Benjamin as a resu lt of the Chancery Court, Petition for Partition, Filed 19 April 1847 (Rec ord Book 20, Page 539, Lewis Evans vs Austin Evans etal). Rhoda would ha ve held one share (1/6th) by order of this partition. Lewis Evans he ld 40 ¾ acres located on the east side of the south-east quarter whi ch he granted by a quit claim to David Conner on 8 March 1853 (Deed Bo ok H, Page 460). David leased 20 acres from his mother-in-law, Demaris Eva ns on 1 April 1857 (Deed Book 29, Page 508), however, there is no de ed on file which transfers that 20 acres, nor the remaining 20 acres of t he quarter to David. As David did not died until 1905, it appears th at he turned over the western half of the 80 acres to his children, with Benjamin Conn er purchasing the shares of his siblings and the granddaughter, Mary J. Jo nes. The remaining portion, the eastern forty acres, was granted by the will of David on 2 December 1905 (Deed Book 89, page 852 ). The last transaction in the Conner name, that I have record of, was wh en Benjamin Conner granted 42 acres, 1 rod and 2 poles, also 8 acres, also 1 acre and 8 poles (the graveyard) to Joseph MC Buroke r, on 3 April 1915 (Deed Book 96, Page 84). However, prior to that tim e, on 16 September 1914, there was an Administrator's Deed by Wm. Th. Hames (sic) to Joseph MC Buroker, for 32 acres 3 rods and 2 pol es in the south-east quarter (Deed Book 95, Page 304). The two deeds total ed more than 83 acres. David was an original member of the Carysville Chri stian Church on 2 April 1853. He name was dropped form the records on 7 Ma rch 1857 but he was listed as an active member on 10 June 1865 and 1 Mar ch 1881. Rhoda, David's wife, also was listed as an original member on 2 A pril 1853 and she was dropped from the membership on 7 March 1857. Margaret Halterman Conner, David's second wife, was list ed as an active member of the church on 17 February 1877. By his two marri ages, David Conner was the father of seventeen children.
