Revised and added Partain Families
Some collateral families: Douthit, Partain, Salee, Tennison Kinfolks
by Evelyn Flood

REVISED: 29 April 2004
This Samuel Bristow story was first published in the Newton County,
Arkansas Times Newspaper on 29 January 1998 in my "Kinfolks column".I compiled this Bristow research at that time.
Am adding updates to this original story. This is the history of
these families as I know it:

Samuel Bristow was born in 1780 in Virginia, the son of
SAMUEL BRISTOW, born 27 March 1730 in Isle of Wright County,
Virginia and
ANN GUTHRIE, born 1755 in Virginia.

Samuel Bristow is mentioned in James Carl Hefley's book, "Way Back
When" as belonging to the Pigeon Creek Baptist Church in Spencer
County, Indiana.
James Carl Hefley has written some very interesting books. His books
can be purchased from the Newton County, Arkansas Historical Society
at their website:
Newton County Historical Society

James Carl Hefley just passed away in Hannibal, Missouri.
What a wonderful writer and good person James Carl Hefley was.
So sorry to hear of his death.

Did you know Samuel Bristow and his wife Lavina were members of the
Crooked Creek Baptist Church of Carroll County, Arkansas in 1834?
See my Kinfolks Story "Early Crooked Creek Baptist Church".
The John FLOOD\FLUD family were also members of this early Crooked
Creek Baptist Church.
Just think....Samuel Bristow who "rubbed shoulders" with the LINCOLNS
also "rubbed shoulders" with my husband's ancestors, John and
Rebecca FLOOD\FLUD......they were all kinfolks.
And Abraham Lincoln was born the year Nathaniel FLOOD(son of John
and Rebecca) was born, my husband's great-great grandfather.
There shall never be a president as great as Abraham Lincoln.
See my 'Kinfolks Memory Album' for Abraham Lincoln articles.
The Bristows were members of the early Pigeon Creek Baptist Church
in Spencer County, Indiana where the LINCOLNS attended church.
Many people do not know that Thomas LINCOLN and Sarah BUSH JOHNSTON
LINCOLN were members of Pigeon Creek Baptist Church.

Records show Samuel Bristow in Spencer County, Indiana in 1820.
Also living in Spencer County was the Thomas LINCOLN family
(Abraham Lincoln's father). The TENNISON families also lived in
Warwick and Spencer Counties, Indiana.

Abraham Lincoln's mother was Nancy HANKS who was born in Virginia.
Thomas and Nancy's first child, Sarah LINCOLN, was born at
Elizabethtown,Hardin County, Kentucky. Abraham Lincoln was born on
12 February 1809 on a farm near Hodgenville, Kentucky.

I am very proud of the fact that my maternal great grandmother was
born in Nicholas County, Kentucky, while my maternal great-
grandfather was born in Henry County, Indiana.

Thomas Lincoln took his family to Spencer County, Indiana. In 1818
Nancy Hanks Lincoln died of "milk sickness". Thomas Lincoln later
married Sarah Bush Johnston, a widow, while on a visit to Kentucky.
They returned to Indiana along with her three children.
It would be interesting to know what happened to Abe's sister Sarah
and the three Johnston children??
Believe Sarah married a soldier in the Union Army and she later died
in childbirth.
Wonder which mother Abe was referring to when he stated "all he ever
knew or became he owed to his darling mother".?? His birth mother
Nancy died when Abe was about nine years old.
Was he referring to his stepmother, Sarah Bush Johnston Lincoln,
as she ran the Lincoln household from Abe's age of about nine to
his days of youth.

Samuel married LAVINA LITTLE ca 1802 in Ohio County, Kentucky.

SAMUEL BRISTOW is on the 1820 Spencer County, Indiana census with
family listed as:
3-0-0-0-1-0......1-1-1-0-0. For those who may not know: 0 is for males of 10 and under 16;
0 is for males between 16 and 18;
0 is for males 16 to 26 (for military purposes);
1 is for males to age 45 (Samuel Bristow, born 1780);
0 is for males 45 and over.
The second set of numbers stands for the FEMALES of the household:
1 stands for females under ten years of age;
1 stands for females 10 to 16;
1 stands for females 16 and under 26 (Lavina);
0 stands for females of 26 and under 45 years;
0 stands for females of 45 and upward.

Samuel Bristow WAS NOT listed on the 1830 Fifth Census of the
United States Population Schedules for Territory of Arkansas.

Conway County, Arkansas created 20 Oct 1825
Pope County, Arkansas created 2 Nov 1829
Carroll County, Arkansas created 1 Nov 1833
Newton County, Arkansas created 14 Dec 1842
Boone County, Arkansas created 9 April 1869
So when one is looking for old records, keep the above dates in
mind. Your ancestor's records may well be in the parent county and
not necessarily in the county they were living in in the census

In 1840 Samuel Bristow was living in Conway County,Arkansas, Upper
Osage Township (per microfilm listing)
0011100010000---0011000100000 which is different than previously listed in my story which I copied from a census microfilm
Cannot account for the difference.
No males under 5; none from 5 to 10; one from 10 to 15; one from 15
to 20; one from 20 to 30 ....and one 60 to female 10 to
15; one female 15 to 10 and....... one female 50 to 60.

His son? John Bristow was living in Carroll County, Arkansas in
Crooked Creek Township with seven children. Another son,
Mathew Bristow also lived in Carroll County in same township, with
four children.

Also living in Carroll County, Arkansas in 1840 were:
Barnett Cheatham, Bolin Cheatham, John L Cox and John Milton Perryman and others.
These names later tie in with other Newton County, Arkansas kinfolks, who
I will write about later.

In 1850 Samuel Bristow, age 70, was in Franklin County, Arkansas in
Lower Township, Dwelling 564.
BRISTOW, Saml, 70, VA
....... Lavina, 67, TN
....... Lucretia, 15
(Per "Arkansas 1850 census Every name Index")

It was not until 1850 that census records listed each person's name
sex, age, color (white, black or mulatto), profession or trade,
real estate value, place of birth, married within the year, over 20
who cannot read and write; whether deaf and dumb, blind, insane,
idiotic, pauper or convict.

between 1850 and 1860.

known children:

(1) MARY ANN BRISTOW, born 11 March 1803 in Ohio County,
Kentucky who married THOMAS TENNISON on 4 March 1820 in Spencer County,

Tenneson, John, page 91
Tennison children were:
1.DAVID TENNISON, born 1820 Spencer County, Indiana.
He married Martha "Patsy" (mnu).
The name David is often confused with the name Daniel.
When it is written in longhand, it is hard to tell the difference.
Found him listed as David and Daniel on census records.
He was in Newton County, Arkansas in 1860 and 1870 and in Taney
County, Missouri in 1880. His children were in Taney County, Missouri

He served in Co. F, First Arkansas Infantry and died in July 1863
in Newton County, Arkansas. His probate record is in Newton County,
Sent for his Civil War Pension record but it contained no genealogy

iii:JOHN TENNISON, born 1823 in Indiana. Married REBECCA J GILMORE.
John and Rebecca lived in Newton County, Arkansas.

Is he a twin to Henry? So there is a Henry and a Harvey(Harry?).
Or did Angeline marry Harvey Bristow twice (he used the name Henry
Bristow the first time and Harvey Bristow the second time.??
HENRY N BRISTOW married Angeline BEASLEY on 9 June 1867 (N-147) in
Johnson County, Arkansas. HARVEY N BRISTOW married Angeline BRISTOW on 3 May 1869 (N-202) in
Johnson County,Arkansas.
This indicates there were two different BRISTOW men
The 1860 census does not show a Harvey and Henry??
Is Harvey Bristow really Henry Bristow?

Since Samuel and Lavina Bristow were in Franklin County, Arkansas in
1850, I believe Samuel died there in Franklin County.
As much as Samuel was a minister and preached in many churches, there
is surely a tombstone for him.
Lavina was living with their son David C on the 1860 Johnson County,
Arkansas census. She probably died in Johnson County, Arkansas.
