Descendants of Robert Tate Sr. of Russell County, VA 1724 – 1794 Updated 11/15/01

GREETINGS FELLOW TATE RESEARCHERS!

I am a Tate through my father’s line. Born during the Great Depression, he was raised as a ward of the State of IL and lived in thirteen foster homes by the time he was eight years old. He knew nothing of his ancestry. That fact, somehow, instilled in me, a yearning to learn what I could of his people.

I’ve been the grateful beneficiary of some very helpful "cousins" over the years that have generously shared their patience, knowledge, data and kindness with me.
Today, I am able to trace ten generations on this particular TATE line. Since posting the data at this site, my files have grown and grown. Much of my progress in this endeavor is due to Jerry Tate. He introduced me to, and assisted me in securing a copy, of Tate Families of the Southern States, Volume II, by Laura Mentzel and Ethel Updike, 1984. I will be eternally grateful to these women for their extraordinary dedication and diligence in the pursuit of their mission.

The Updike Book provides the "bones" of this database. It is a remarkable collection of data when you consider that this was before the Internet. We have all learned that just because something is on the Internet, it is not necessarily valid. The same caution should be taken with this book. I have not changed anything from the book unless I have found verified evidence or been advised of a correction by a direct descendant. I have included sources and references. Speculation continues today as to the validity of the earliest family, that of Robert Tate, Sr. Whether the three sons listed in the book, and here, are actually brothers, is in question. Further research needs to be done and some of our "cousins" are spending a great deal of time and effort in the pursuit of the truth of these early Tates.

Since the original posting of this information I have had the fortune of finding some new "cousins". I have so enjoyed and am thankful for the collaboration offered by: Cindy King, Roland Tate,
Carol Vaughan, Sandi Crook, Sonny Tate, Shirley Knight, Vicky Drake, Billie Bailey, Sandra Hereford, Susan Kepler, Ron Jones, Beth Kruzich, Linda Mangrum, Sue Forrester, Sarah Land, Marcene Oxford, Allen Tate, Bob Tate, Blanche Tate, Dr. James Leroy Tate, Jr., Michael Tate, Sam Waring, Tyne Watson, Evin Bail, Jean Grumbling, Carolyn Dykes, and Mary Lou Highlander. Their kind generosity has helped to expand my files to over 6,000 individuals. If you, too, are a "cousin", please email me and say hello.

This is not an index of the book, but a privatized and edited copy of the data I entered into my software files (Family Tree Maker 9.0). My interest in this family is not limited to names, dates and places. I have attempted to gather as many stories, written articles and references I could find about these individuals. This, to me, brings some life to their names, dates and places and some insight into their histories.

This is my interpretation of the data I’ve found. I do not guarantee the accuracy of the information contained herein. It is subject to change, errors and omissions. Please offer your suggestions, additions or corrections at

Generation No. 1

Notes for ROBERT (SR.) TATE:

Excerpts from Tate Families of the Southern States, Volume II, by Laura Mentzel and Ethel Updike, 1984

There were several families of the name Tate in southwestern Virginia before the Revolution and some were not related. There was an early Robert Tate, in Washington County, VA, who was probably the ancestor of the Col. John Tate, Robert Tate, Jr. and William Tate who settled in Washington County, VA, in 1772. This Robert Tate estate was taxed in 1794, indicating that he had passed on prior to that date.

Augusta County, VA was formed in 1738 and comprised a great part of Virginia. Botetourt County was formed in 1769 and Fincastle County was formed in 1772. Washington County was formed in 1776 and Russell County was formed in 1785, where they eventually found themselves living. Robert Tate Sr. died prior to 1794, however his son, Robert Tate, Jr., continued to be called "Jr." In November 1804, in Russell County, VA, a power of attorney was granted by Sarah Hanley to her friend Robert Tate, Jr. to "receive rent due me" on land in Orange County, NC; witnessed by Richard Davis, Robert Tate, Jr., and Aaron Tate. Robert Tate and Aaron were brothers, thus it seems there were several generations of Robert Tates in the area. This early Robert Tate was probably the father of Col. John, Robert Jr. and William Tate.

From The Tate Family of Russell Co., VA by David Farris, Gateway Press, 1986

From WFT V2 # 5573:

John Tate was born in 1743, Virginia, and is thought to be a son of Robert Tate. John is thought to be the brother to Robert Tate Jr., born 1745 and to William Tate, born 1747. John Tate, at the age of 23, married Mary Bracken in 1766.

In a deposition dated 24 February 1810 for the court case of George Fugate vs. Nancy Mahon; John Tate stated that he settled on Big Moccasin Creek on a spur of Clinch Mountain on the Holston River in November 1772 and that Francis Fugate family then lived on the land. The land was located in Botetourt County, and that Francis Fugate, deceased, who lived five miles from him, " did as the rest of us did, defended our land and families, and lived on the land in dispute (1772-1781) except for the time forted."

The land in the Moccasin Valley on which John Tate first settled was Botetourt County, then shortly thereafter became Fincastle County. (Jan. 1773- Jan. 1777) In 1777, Fincastle Co., was discontinued, and the land was then in Washington County. (Jan. 1777- May 1786) In 1786, John's original settlement near Lebanon, became present day Russell County.

John obtained his first land grant of 145 acres from the Royal Company of Virginia. The land was surveyed 12 December 1774 by John Floyd, Deputy to Colonel William Preston, Surveyor of Fincastle County.

Around 1775-76, John and his neighbors built a fort for protection against Indians on his land. The fort was called Tate's Fort and was known by early travelers to Tennessee and Kentucky.

John enlisted in the Washington County Virginia Militia and Patriots during the American Revolution and fought in the Revolutionary Battle of King's Mountain, 8 October 1780, in South Carolina. John Tate's name is found in the "History of Washington County and Southwest Virginia" by Lewis Preston Summers. The Washington County Militia was commanded by Colonel William Campbell who led them to victory against the British Forces. Colonel William Campbell was married to Elizabeth Henry, sister to Patrick Henry. She then married General William Russell, (for whom Russell Co. was named), after the death of Colonel Campbell.

A Land Treasury Warrant, survey recorded 1 May 1781 for $9,059, Washington County, gave John an additional 100 acres of land. In Nov. 1781, John Tate, Robert Tate, William Huston and John Wood were appointed to appraise the estate of Francis Fugate deceased, who was killed by a fall from his horse. John Tate in February 1782, was among the ones who were appointed to view and cut out the road down Moccasin Valley from Little Moccasin Gap in Clinch Mountain (present US 19) between Abingdon and Lebanon to Big Moccasin Gap (present US 23) near Gate City. With the formation of Russell County in May of 1786, John Tate was appointed constable and an overseer of the poor. He was also a Lieutenant in the Militia.

In 1787, John was appointed Captain in the upper Militia of the Moccasin Valley. He also took the "Oath of Allegiance" to the newly drafted Constitution of the United States. By appointment by the Governor of Virginia, John Tate served as a " Gentlemen Justice " on the Russell County Court with devotion for the rest of his life. Because of his position as Justice, he was referred to as John Tate; Gent., of John Tate; Esquire. John rode his horse to various places of county government meetings at Castlewood, Dickensonville and Lebanon, serving one to three days per month. He often presided, wrote the minutes of the meetings, and signed them with an attractive, bold signature.

Still in the Virginia Militia in 1789, John became Captain of the 2nd Battalion, 72nd Regiment. In 1792 when Lee County had been formed from part of Russell County, John was Appointed as one of the commissioners for Russell County to meet with the commissioners for Lee County to superintend and run the dividing line between the two counties. In 1800, John recorded his cattle mark with the Russell Co., Court. His cattle mark was a "swallow fork" in the left ear. John became Sheriff and Collector of Revenue serving 2 years in 1801.

James Monroe, the Governor of Virginia, later President, appointed John Tate to become Lieutenant Colonel Commander of the 72nd Regiment, 3rd Division of the Virginia Militia in 1802. Again in 1809, John was an overseer of the poor and served by re-appointments 15 or more consecutive years. In 1813, John and others, requested that a school be established officially as Amity Hall Academy. John was one of the signers and one of the trustees.

In 1819, John and his grandson, Robert Fugate, became executors of the estate of Colbert Fugate, deceased. Colbert Fugate married his daughter Hannah. Colbert was a farmer, part-time county official, and 3 times a member of the Virginia Legislature.

John as the senior Justice among 31 present for a special meeting in Lebanon in 1825, help start Emory and Henry College, 10 miles east of Abingdon at Emory, Virginia.

At the age of 83 in 1826, John again became Sheriff and Collector of Revenue for Russell County and served 2 years. This was his third term as Sheriff.

On the Tate Farm at Zumbeg, 15 miles southwest of Lebanon, in the Moccasin Valley, a moss-covered slab reads:

" Col. John Tate, died December 15, 1828, aged 85 years, and Mary Tate, his wife, died March 13, 1817, aged 75 years."

Inventory of his estate 11 Feb. 1829, wit: Martin Fugate, David Jessee and John Olson. At the sale 13 Feb. 1829 were: John Fugate, Hannah Fugate, Uriah Fugate, Hiram & John Owens, Elisha Price, John, Joseph, Robert and William Tate.

Administrator of estate, Robert Tate, a deed of 9 Dec 1829 is signed by: Robert Tate, Hannah Fugate, Samuel Tate and the heirs of Jane Haddox or Haddin, dec'd, John Buster and Martha his wife, William Fugate and Lydia his wife. To his son Isaac Tate, Hannah the widow of Colbert O. Fugate, etc. John Tate gave Isaac Tate a tract of land but did not deed it to him, consequently after his death in 1828, the family met and signed a deed to Isaac conveying the 108 acres on which he then lived to him, the deed dated 9 Dec. 1829.

From The Tate Families of Russell County, VA, by David Farris, Gateway Press, 1986

The ancestors of Col. John Tate and his brother Robert Jr. are uncertain. Their whereabouts prior to their arrival in Southwest Virginia in the late 1760's or early 1770's has not been determined. There are some pieces of information that do point to the Tate family who first settled in York Co. in about 1635. This family lived in New Kent Co., which came out of York Co. from the mid 1660's, and through the 1760's in Hanover and Louisa Counties. Both Hanover and Louisa Counties came out of New Kent.

The association John and Robert Tate with this Tate family stems from the similarities in the family names, but more importantly, from their departure to Orange County, North Carolina. This connection can be made through John Tate's wife Mary Bracken.

Mary Bracken's grandfather, William Bracken, immigrated from England in 1699, landing in Philadelphia aboard the "Britannia" of Liverpool. He settled in New Castle, Delaware where he became well enough off to give land to his sons. John Bracken, Mary's father, sold his land in 1763 and left New Castle. He moved to Orange County, NC were he is recorded in 1766 and died in 1770.

The Tate family moved from the Louisa County area sometime in the 1760's with many of them settling in the Orange, Guilford and Caswell Counties of North Carolina. The census of 1790 shows the children of John Bracken living adjacent to several members of the Louisa County Tate family in the Chatham District. It is very possible that John and Mary Tate never did move to North Carolina, but struck out on their own during this time of westward movement.

Specific records of John and Robert (Jr.) Tate start in what was Botetourte County about 1770. Robert accumulated more land than John. Col. John Tate was active in the settlement of the area of what was to become Russell County. Both he and his brother Robert were very active in area affairs, with John the more civic minded of the two. A Robert Tate, possibly Robert and John's father, died in Russell County about 1794.

John Tate settled in Moccasin Creek in 1772, on land that Francis Fugate had lived on. John and Mary Tate remained their the rest of their lives. In the 1770's and 1780's he was active in the Militia, and he served as a Justice of the Court and as sheriff of Russell County. His daughter, Hannah, born about 1772, married Colbert Fugate about 1789 or 1790.

Robert Tate was not as active in civic affairs and less is know of him. His wife Mary's family is unknown. His oldest son Joseph married Margaret Floyd sometime before 1805. Joseph's son and Robert's grandson, Elisha, married Eliza Davenport. Elisha and Eliza Tate's daughter, Permelia Jane Tate married Ferdinand Joseph Colbert Fugate in 1850. This would make F.J.C Fugate and Permelia Jane Tate third cousins, sharing a common great-great grandfather, Robert Tate Sr.

FRONTIER FORTS OF SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA, by Emory L. Hamilton

From Historical Sketches of Southwest Virginia, Number 4, 1968, pages 1 to 26

TATE'S FORT

Tate's Fort on Moccasin Creek in Russell County was another the early historians completely overlooked, and only two historical references brought it to light. The first made by Mrs. Samuel Scott of Jessamine Co., KY, who in referring to her stay on the Clinch makes this statement: "We moved out of Tate's Fort, close on Moccasin Creek, over to Holston to get ready to come to Kentucky." (15) This was in the spring of 1780 and she joined a party of emigrants to Kentucky in 1784.

The other statement was made by Captain John Carr, of Sumner Co., TN, who was born on Carr's Creek in Russell Co., VA, in 1773, and moved with his widowed mother to the Cumberland settlement in 1784. In speaking of the year 1776, he states: "My father settled on Big Moccasin Creek with some 15 or 20 families from Houston's Fort. The Indians were so troublesome that we built a "new fort". It was called Tate's Fort, where we forted in summer and returned home in winter." (16)

Carr's statement needs some clarification and he does not mean that his father settled on Moccasin Creek in 1776, but that it was this year in which they moved out of Houston's Fort where they had refugeed in the past and built a new fort for their convenience. His father had settled on Moccasin Creek much earlier for John, himself, was born there in 1773, and his father died there in 1782. This, then, places the construction of Tate's Fort in the year 1776.

That Tate's Fort was a stockaded affair certainly cannot be doubted, for 15 or 20 families could never have crowded into a fort house. It certainly must have been manned and defended by its occupants for I find no record of militia ever having been stationed there.

This fort was built on the lands of Colonel John Tate who had settled on Moccasin Creek in the year 1772, on a tract of 174 acres of land surveyed for him December 13, 1774. (17) I have not found any account that this fort was ever attacked directly by Indians.

Notes for ROBERT (JR.) TATE:

Excerpts from Tate Families of the Southern States, Volume II, by Laura Mentzel and Ethel Updike, 1984

Robert, born, circa 1745 of Augusta County, VA, but later of Fincastle County, VA, son of Robert Tate. Robert Tate Jr. received a land grant of 174 acres in Fincastle, County, VA on December 13, 1774 on Big Moccasin Creek, North Fork of Holston River. On April 20, 1784 he received a land patent of 250 acres in Washington County, VA on both sides of Big Moccasin Creek on a spur of Clinch Mountain on the Holston River some three miles from Col. John Tate. In 1781 he and his brother, John swore allegiance to the United States in Washington County, VA. In 1781, Col. John Tate, Robert Tate, Wiliam Houston, and John Wood were appointed to appraise the estate of Francis Fugate, deceased, who was killed by a fall from his horse and who lived in the valley when the Tate families arrived.

He was an Ensign of the Militia in 1786, while his brother, John was a Lieutenant. He died testate, July 24, 1796. His will executed 29, Jul 1796 to wife, Mary. "The still, the land I now live on, except the land on the S. W. side of Mill to the line where it crosses Ovelton's road, then to be given to my sons Joseph, Tate, Alexander Tate, Aaron Tate and my daughter Polly. To my sons, John Tate, James Tate, land S. W. of Mill, only they to pay my son Robert Tate", wit. Robert Tate, Jr., Isaac Tate and John Tate.

At a court held in Russell County, VA, February 3, 1807 and proven by the Oath of John Tate and William Fugate, and on motion of Mary Tate, Richard Davis and Colbert Fugate, security for Mary Tate, she posted bond of ($2,500) administered with the will annexed granted her. The witnesses to this will were, no doubt, the son of John Tate, Robert, John Tate, William Tate and Colbert Fugate, his son-in-laws. The Robert Tate of this sketch is the man who was a contemporary with and associated in many court affairs with Col. John Tate. I am quite sure they were brothers, but no documentary proof exists. Robert Tate's will did not mention that most of his children were minors, but they were. On October 10, 1816, John Tate and wife Dicey, James Tate and wife Ruth, Robert Tate and wife Susannah, Alexander Tate and wife Delilah, Aaron Tate and wife Betsey and Marady Price and wife Polly, all of Warren County, TN, of the first part to Joseph Tate of Russell County, VA, the home place. The same land this Robert Tate acquired in 1774 and 1784, adjacent to Richard Davis and Hullams, witnessed by John Rodgers and Reuben Berryman. All of the males signed, and Mary (Polly) Tate signed her right of dower to her son Joseph Tate.

Excerpts from Rebels, Saints and Sinners, An Ancestral History of the Southern States, by Dennis Armfield Tate, 2000

He received a land grant of 174 acres on December 13, 1774 on Big Moccasin Creek, North Fork of the Holston River in Fincastle County, VA. It begins near Hansonville and is a long valley extending to near Big Moccasin Gap in Scott County, VA. The Valley is paralleled by Clinch Mountain on the South and Moccasin Ridge on the North. Moccasin Valley adjoins Washington County, VA at the top of Clinch Mountain and Scott County, VA to the South. Big Moccasin Creek extends the entire length of the valley flowing into the north fork of the Holston River near Big Moccasin Gap. The story is told that early settlers coming through the valley found Indian moccasin footprints in the soft mud on the banks of the creek. This, the name Moccasin Creek and later Moccasin Valley. The naming of the creek has been attributed to Daniel Boone in about 1769.

Notes submitted by Roland Tate, descendant, in an email dated 01/13/2000

"Here is another date correction for you. J. Strigel Tate established Robert Tate's date of death as July 24, 1806, not 1796 as printed in the Updike book. I am sure that that date was provided them as well, but got confused with the date Robert signed his will (July 29, 1796). Robert Jr. appeared in court October 25, 1803 for the purpose of executing his brother William's will. In November of 1804 he was given Power of Attorney by Sarah Hanley for purpose of collecting rents due her in Orange Co., NC. His own will was presented in court on February 03, 1807, some four months following his death."

" James Striegel Tate, Individual 1531X on pages 102 and 103 did fully a third of the research that went into the Vol. II book. He was in almost constant touch with my mother and oldest sister for the last three years of his life. He sent considerable information directly to them and of course he sought information."

Notes submitted by Roland Tate, descendant, in an email dated 04/14/2001

"The Personal Property Tax listing on the Russell County, VA Gen Web lists our Robert Tate, Jr. as Robert, Sr. and Col. John Tate's son Robert, as Robert Jr. The head of the household was tithed along with white males in the household between the ages of 16 and 21. Some with infirmities and/or old age are exempted and designated with a Zero." "On this forum, they include Col. John Tate, Robert Tate, and William Tate, all in the Lower District. I believe that the Upper district later became a part of Tazewell County. The 1791 List of the Lower District is missing. The Lists otherwise included are from 1787-1802 and 1810."

"In 1787, there was a Robert Tate listed that could be either our Robert Jr. or Robert Sr. (just himself or 1). In 1788, there was no Robert listed, but John was listed as 1 & 1 on two lines. This may be a typing error, or a mistake in the original records. In 1789 and 1790, Robert was taxed 1 (on himself) and 1791 (we don't know)." "In 1792, Robert paid for himself and 1 (16-21). In 1797, Robert is taxed on himself and 2 (16-21_. In 1798, Robert is taxed on himself and 2 (16-21). In 1800, Robert is taxed on himself and 1 (16-21), but none of his children are added to the Tax Lists. In 1801, Robert is taxed on himself and 2 (16-21) and Joseph is taxed on himself. In 1802, Robert is taxed on himself and 2 (16-21)."

"It would be nice if we had the information for 1803 - 1809, but I don't. Both Joesph and Alexander were taxed in 1810, but none of the others of Robert's family were." "James Striegel Tate sent a chart to my mother entitled "Five Tate Brothers of Warren County, Tennessee". In it, he bases the ages of the brothers on the 1830 Federal Census. He uses the 1820 Federal Census for some of the children and some of the wives. I believe that Mentzel and Updike mistakenly calculated from the 1820 Census for the ages of some of the brothers. Anyway, Striegel lists John, James and Robert as being 50 - 60 on the 1830 Federal Census. He lists Alexander and Aaron as being 40 - 50 on the 1830 Federal Census. It seems that Joseph was also among the 50 - 60 group on the 1830 Census. Thus, there were four sons born in the 1770-1780 group and two sons in the 1780-1790 group."

On the 1820 Federal Census of Warren County, TN they were listed with 5 children; 3 males and 2 females between the ages of 16 - 26, 2 children; 1 male and 1 female between the ages of 10 - 16 and 5 children; 5 males, under the age of 10. By the 1830 Census, he had 1 male and 1 female with Ruth between the ages of 5 - 10 and 3 males under 5 with Elizabeth. Elizabeth is age 20 - 30 on the 1830 Census."

"The 1830 Federal Census of Warren County, TN lists Robert H. , age 50 - 60, born 1770 - 1780 and Suzannah, age 26 - 45, born 1785 - 1805. On the 1820 Federal Census of Warren County, TN, they were listed with 4 children, 2 males and 2 females between the ages of 10 - 16 and 4 children; 1 male and 3 females, under 10. From this chart, it appears that in 1830, Suzannah had had 1 male and 1 female ages 5 - 10 and 1 male under 5. His second wife, Cintha, had 1 male under 5. Her age was taken from the 1850 Federal Census of Warren County, TN as 40 - 50, so whe was still quite yound in 1830. On the 1840 Census they are listed with additional children; 2 males and 1 female, ages 5 - 10 and 1 male and 1 female under 5."

"The 1830 Federal Census of Warren County, TN lists Alexander Tate, age 40 - 50, born 1780 - 1790 and Delilah, age 40 - 50, born 1780 - 1790. On the 1820 Federal Census of Warren County, TN they were listed with 2 males under 10. In 1830 they had 2 additional children listed; 1 male and 1 female, ages 15 - 20."

"I will not list Aaron at this time, as there is no doubt that he was the youngest son and since Joseph remained in Virginia, he was not included in the chart. From this, I think that you can see my reasoning for the order of their births."

I concur with Roland's reasoning and have reflected these changes in the birth dates and order of birth for Robert Tate Jr.s children in this file. Note from Ricki Wilkins, descendant.

From The Tate Families of Russell County, VA, by David Farris, Gateway Press, 1986

The ancestors of Col. John Tate and his brother Robert Jr. are uncertain. Their whereabouts prior to their arrival in Southwest Virginia in the late 1760's or early 1770's has not been determined. There are some pieces of information that do point to the Tate family who first settled in York Co. in about 1635. This family lived in New Kent Co., which came out of York Co. from the mid -1660's, and through the 1760's in Hanover and Louisa Counties. Both Hanover and Louisa Counties came out of New Kent.

The association John and Robert Tate with this Tate family stems from the similarities in the family names, but more importantly, from their departure to Orange County, North Carolina. This connection can be made through John Tate's wife Mary Bracken.

Mary Bracken's grandfather, William Bracken, immigrated from England in 1699, landing in Philadelphia aboard the "Britannia" of Liverpool. He settled in New Castle, Delaware where he became well enough off to give land to his sons. John Bracken, Mary's father, sold his land in 1763 and left New Castle. He moved to Orange County, NC were he is recorded in 1766 and died in 1770.

The Tate family moved from the Louisa County area sometime in the 1760's with many of them settling in the Orange, Guilford and Caswell Counties of North Carolina. The census of 1790 shows the children of John Bracken living adjacent to several members of the Louisa County Tate family in the Chatham District. It is very possible that John and Mary Tate never did move to North Carolina, but struck out on their own during this time of westward movement.

Specific records of John and Robert (Jr.) Tate start in what was Botetourte County about 1770. Robert accumulated more land than John. Col. John Tate was active in the settlement of the area of what was to become Russell County. Both he and his brother Robert were very active in area affairs, with John the more civic minded of the two. A Robert Tate, possibly Robert and John's father, died in Russell County about 1794.

John Tate settled in Moccasin Creek in 1772, on land that Francis Fugate had lived on. John and Mary Tate remained their the rest of their lives. In the 1770's and 1780's he was active in the Militia, and he served as a Justice of the Court and as sheriff of Russell County. His daughter, Hannah, born about 1772, married Colbert Fugate about 1789 or 1790.

Robert Tate was not as active in civic affairs and less is know of him. His wife Mary's family is unknown. His oldest son Joseph married Margaret Floyd sometime before 1805. Joseph's son and Robert's grandson, Elisha, married Eliza Davenport. Elisha and Eliza Tate's daughter, Permelia Jane Tate married Ferdinand Joseph Colbert Fugate in 1850. This would make F.J.C Fugate and Permelia Jane Tate third cousins, sharing a common great-great grandfather, Robert Tate Sr.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Robert Tate, who, resided in Washington County, VA, assisted in establishing independence while acting in the capacity of a Surveyor of the Road and as a member of a Jury, qualifying him for service as a patriot in the Revolutionary War. He was a Surveyor of the Road from May 14, 1781 until April 16, 1783. He service on a Jury in 1782.

Cites: Annals of Southwest Virginia 1769-1800 by Lewis Preston Summers, Page 843; Copies of Washington County, VA court minutes, Minute Book 1, pages 113, 144 and 188.

It is also probable that Robert served with the "Kings Mountain Men" a group of militia formed in his area, however we have not yet found documentation to support this. The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has a concise application on Robert Tate and list all of his sources regarding his service. Descendants have been admitted into the association.

Notes for WILLIAM TATE:

Excerpts from Tate Families of the Southern States, Volume II, by Laura Mentzel and Ethel Updike, 1984

William Tate, born about 1747 of Augusta or Botetourt County, VA, died September 15, 1803 testate. He settled in Washington County about the time, John and Robert did and is thought to be a brother. He was on the tax rolls for 1784. On February 20, 1793, Joel Hobbs and wife Margaret sold 145 acres on both sides of Big Moccasin Creek, a spur of Clinch Mountain on the Holston River to William Tate. It would seem that he was not a public spirited man, however, there are so many acts attributed to the other William Tate over this period that I wonder if this William Tate was active, but the other William has received all of the credit, living in the same county as they did. He lived within five miles of Col. John and Robert Tate. He executed his will, September 15, 1803 in Russell County, VA, probated October 25, 1803 by wife Elizabeth.

Notes for COLBERT O. FUGATE:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

From The Fugate Family of Russell Co., VA by David Farris, Gateway Press 1986

There is some doubt as to who the original Fugate was in America. Early genealogists thought that Peter LaFoucate of Baltimore County, Maryland was the original settler. Further study, however, casts doubt on this and points to James Fugett who married Martha Poel (Poole). James was the son of James Fugett and Emaline Lamb of Ltegray, London.

James Fugett married Martha Poel in Henrico County, Virginia in 1694. The county was established in 1611, just four years after Jamestown. It extended on both sides of the James River from the junction of the James and Appomattox Rivers to the Blue Ridge Mountains. In 1634 there were 4914 settlers in Virginia, with 419 of these in Henrico County. In 1694 Henrico County consisted of Goochland (1727), Albemarle (1744), Amherst(1761), Fluvanna(1777), Nelson, Chesterfield (1747), Cumberland(1749), Buckingham(1732), Powhatan and part of Appomattox Counties as well as the cities of Richmond, Charlottesville and Colonial Heights. The boundaries have remained essentially unchanged since 1747.

They are known to have resided in Perquimans Precinct, North Carolina, from 1697 to 1702.

Josias Fugate is the earliest confirmed Fugate. He resided in the Northern Neck of Virginia in the Brunswick Parish of King George County. In Josias' will, dated 18 March, 1757, he mentions his sons Francis, John, Josias, Randolph, Martin and daughter Ann Swillavant, as well as his wife, Mary. Mary has, by tradition, been assumed to be Mary Martin. It is probable that his sons John, Josias, Randolph, and Martin, had moved elsewhere to settle. Randolph is known to have been in Orange County, Virginia, by 1738.

Martin Fugate was recorded in Frederick County in 1755. The area he was located in was possibly the area known as Dunmore County from 1772 to 1777, renamed Shenandoah County in 1777, and later divided into Page and Warren Counties. He was also recorded in Culpeper Co., Virginia, in 1761, 1763, and 1775. It is probable that all his children were born in this area. His brother John Jr. was recorded as selling his land in the same area on 09 October, 1771 then purchasing land in 1772 in the Moccasin

Valley in what was then Botetourt County, and later Fincastle, Washington, and finally Russell County. Martin was first noted in Russell County in 1789 as "exempt from taxation". It was in Russell County that Martin Fugate's estate was settled on 29 June, 1803.

The area which is now Russell County was an intertribal Indian hunting preserve until 1745 when it became part of Augusta County. Between 1769 and 1785 it was contained in Botetourt, Fincastle, and Washington Counties. In 1786, Russell Country was formed from Washington County. The boundary lines extended from Clinch Mountain to the Cumberland Gap on the Kentucky Border and eastward to a point near Bluefield, Virginia. In 1790 the County had a population of 3338, including 190 slaves.

The first known group of settlers arrived in Castles Woods, in 1770. Among this group, then considered squatters, was Charles Bickley, brother of Mary Carter. They claimed and settled on land to which they could not obtain legal title because of problems with the Loyal Company, Indians, and the Crown. Many of these first settlers did not obtain legal right to their land until the 1780s. A good account of the settlement of Southwest Virginia is given by Judge Lyman Chalkley.

In 1772, Francis Fugate settled at Moccasin Creek, one year after Col. John Tate. In 1774, because of continuing Indian raids, Captain William Russell was ordered to build a number of palisade forts as a means of protection. These forts, which protected many of the Fugate ancestors include Elk Garden Fort, where Solomon Litton was captured by Indians, Fort Blackmore, where Dale Carter was killed, and Tate's Fort, located on Col. John Tate's land. Following them were, among others, Colbert Fugate, Robert Tate Sr. and Robert Tate Jr.

The Moccasin Valley, where most of the Fugates and Tates settled, is a fertile but rocky farming area located in the southwestern part of Russell County. It extends from Hansonville to near Big Moccasin Gap in Scott County, with Clinch Mountain on the south and Moccasin Ridge on the North. The name of Big Moccasin Creek, attributed to Daniel Boone about 1769 after the first settlers found Indian moccasin footprints in the soft mud of the creek banks.

Martin Fugate had at least 4 sons Francis, Henley, Zachariah, and Colbert were all mentioned in court records. In addition, Benjamin and William Fugate, all residing in Moccasin Creek are probably his sons. He also may have had a daughter, Ann, married to Samuel Haddix of Moccasin Creek. A possible second daughter, married to James McCarty, was killed by Indians in 1788.

Martin's son Colbert, as well as Colbert's son, Isaac Beverly Fugate, who was born on 04 May, 1804, lived in Moccasin Valley, Russell County their entire lives.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Colbert Fugate came to Russell County, VA in 1771 and settled on what was known as Big Moccasin Creek. Colbert Fugate served in Virginia's legislature for two terms. Colbert and his wife are buried on the family plantation which is still in the Tate family of Lebanon, VA. John Tate and Mary Bracken are buried there also.

John Tate was born about 1783 in Big Moccasin Creek, a spur of Clinch Mountain near Lebanon which later became Russell County, VA. He was mentioned in the will of his father Robert Tate, on July 29, 1796 and signed with his heirs in 1816.

He was given the parcel of land southwest of Mill Dam to Ovelton's Road. On February 20, 1801, John Tate purchased from John Wood of Russell County, VA for 25 pounds, 100 acres on Big Moccasin Creek granted to John Wood by Patent on January 1, 1800 adj. John Johnson and a cliff of Moccasin Creek. On July 7, 1807, John Tate and his wife, Leodicie (Dicey) sold 100 acres to Ephraim Johnson of Sullivan County, TN. Also on that same day, John and Dicey completed another transaction with Mary Hogg, believed to be Dicey's mother. Land was assigned to Dicey Hogg by Henry Creek or Cook, before her marriage to John Tate. Signature Leodicie Tate. It is thought they married about that time.

On August 6, 1806, John Tate, James, Joseph and Robert Tate signed a petition to have a new County formed. John settled with his brother Alexander on Dry Creek, Warren County, TN and apparently lived there the remainder of his life.

On February 13, 1812, Vincent Hobbs of Lincoln County, TN sold to John Tate of Warren County, TN, land on Collins River, witnessed by James Clendenon, and on October 3, 1818, John Tate of Warren County, TN sold to John Tate, land on Collins River witnessed by Alexander Tate. On July 4, 1841, a notation for Edward Hoge, dec'd estate, by James Davidson and Hood Tate. (They were probably Dicey's people.)

The only John Tate listed in Warren County, TN in 1820 is over 45 with a large family, 5 sons and 6 daughters; wife 26-45. In 1830 there were 4 sons and as many daughters. In 1845, he had died intestate, a farmer who left few records. He had eleven children. The only children identified are those shown on the 1850 Census of Warren County, TN.

"Born in 1778 in Big Moccasin Creek, a spur of Clinch Mountain on the Holston River, some 15 miles from Lebanon, Russell County, VA. Son of Robert and Mary Tate. Here he grew up and married Ruth Davidson, daughter of James Davidson (Davison) of Russell and Scott Counties, VA (1826 Scott County, VA Wills), in 1798. It is believed that he migrated to Warren County, TN before his father died in 1806 with Ruth and children.

In 1806 he met with some of his brothers (he and four of his brothers, Aaron, Alexander, John and Robert, are listed on the 1820 Warren County, TN tax rolls) and others to petition for a New County where they lived, consequently in 1807 Warren County was organized. James and his brother Robert settled in a remote section of the County, on Taylor Creek, until after he married his second wife (Elizabeth Smith) and moved to the mountains, in what later became Grundy County, TN. He accumulated a considerable amount of land (over 20,000 acres) in the valley, as well as on the Cumberland Plateau where he maintained a distillery. (Warren County was a major producer of apple brandy during his lifetime.)

He served in the War of 1812 at the rank of Captain, later promoted to Major and was known as Major Tate from that time on. He served as a Justice of the Peace for Warren County and was prominent in business and public affairs. Warren County Militiamen in the Creek Indian Wars of 1814, Captain James Tait's (Tate) Company, Col. Stephen Copeland's 3rd West Tennessee Regiment, General Thomas Johnson Brigade. The Creek Indian Wars of 1814 were classified by the U. S. Government as a "sub-war' of the War of 1812. Several militia companies were organized from the area of Warren County, TN and it's adjacent counties, including that of Capt. James Tait. Not only did Capt. Tait muster and pay rolls survive, but so did his personal pay voucher which specified dates, actual miles traveled and locations. The militia records of 1814 are particularly valuable to researchers because so many of these men were under 20 years of age--too young to have appeared on the 1812 Warren County tax lists, and often gone by 1820. The following is an exact transcription from the original records:

He and Ruth Davidson had thirteen children. They were divorced before February 23, 1829 when he married Elizabeth Smith. He and Elizabeth were the parents of five children.

That he was the son of Robert and Mary Tate of Russell Co. VA was recited in a deed dated October 14, 1816, Russell Co., VA, when the heirs of Robert Tate decided to dispose of certain land. James and wife Ruth; John and wife Dicey; Robert and wife Susannah; Alexander and wife Delilah and Mary "Polly" and husband Marady Price, met and sold the land to their brother Joseph Tate. The mother Mary who was also in Warren Co., TN, signed her dower to the son Joseph Tate who remained on the old plantation in Russell Co., VA.

Major James Tate also executed a will. He died testate April 19, 1849, buried in Philadelphia Cemetery, 13 miles south of McMinnville, TN. The will was contested, went to the Supreme Court of TN. The widow, Elizabeth received most of the estate. However, all of the children were named. Robert and Davidson Tate were named administrators.

In an email dated February 16, 2001, Bill Ansley writes:

Major James Tate married Ruth Davidson. Her maiden name furnished by fults@infoave.net on 7/1998 (Ruth Savage

Fults). Ruth's father was James Davidson, per same source. Major James Tate is buried at Philadelphia Baptist Church Cemetery in either Grundy Co TN or county just to the north of Grundy?...I've visited the cemetery and have viewed his stone...a large oblisque? He divorced Ruth, a matter that went to the TN state legislature, almost unheard of during that

era. After the Major's death, his former wife and children by that marriage fought his will (which left them nothing) but lost. The Major owned some 26,000 acres on Grundy Mountain.

Notes for JOSEPH TATE:

Excerpts from Tate Families of the Southern States, by Laura Mentzel and Ethel Updike, 1984

Joseph Tate was born on Big Moccasin Creed, a spur of Clinch Mountain on the Holston River, near Lebanon, Russell County, VA of Robert and Mary Tate. That his wife was Margaret (Mary) Floyd is indicated by several deeds. On March 25, 1800, Robert Tate and his wife Mary sold to Joseph Tate, 50 acres on both sides of the Big Moccasin Creek, a steep spur of Clinch Mountain, adjacent to William Hullams and Richard Davis. No doubt, a gift, shortly after his marriage.

On October 14, 1816, the heirs of Robert Tate, deceased, all residents now, or Warren County, TN, sold to Joseph Tate, the home plantation consisting of 177 acres, it being a part of a tract of land 250 acres patented to Robert Tate on April 20, 1784. Mary Tate, the widow of Robert Tate, of Warren County, TN signed dower to her son, Joseph. On July 15, 1825, Joseph Tate and wife, Margaret of Russell, County, Va sold 100 acres to Elish Tate, on both sides of Big Moccasin Creek. Joseph died March 16, 1843.

William Tate who is indebted to Elisha Tate, administrator of the estate of Joseph, sold 177 on which his father Joseph Tate, deceased, lived. On August 23, 1844, John Tate and wife, Jane; Robert C. Tate and wife, Nancy; Elisha Tate and wife Eliza; and William Tate, heirs-at-law of Joseph Tate, deceased, sold to Joseph C. Fugate, 100 acres and 170 acres on both sides of Big Moccasin Creek, a spur of Clinch Mountain, where Joseph Tate died, adjacent Samuel C. Fugate and Elish Tate.

Notes for ROBERT HOOD (III) TATE:

"Robert was born 1780 on Big Moccasin Creek, a spur of Clinch Mountain near the Holston River. It is thought that his full name was Robert Hood Tate III, but no documentary proof has been found. He was, no doubt, a minor when his father executed his will July 29, 1796. However, no mention was made in the will regarding their ages. He and his wife had been living in Warren County, TN before 1806, since he signed, with his other brother, a petition requesting that there be a new County formed. He and his wife, Susannah were named in the deed on October 14, 1816 when the heirs of Robert Tate dec'd sold the home plantation.

They settled in Warren County, TN near his brother Major James Tate on Taylor's Creek out of McMinnville, Warren County, TN. A descendant stated he was the most active of all the brothers in Civil affairs and had four land grants totalling some 5,190 acres of land. On January 12, 1819 Robert H. Tate sold 150 acres adj. Aaron Tate, where he then lived, to John Gross, no wife signed dower.

The Federal Census of 1820, Warren County, TN lists this family with 3 sons and 5 daughters. In 1830 there was still 3 sons, however, one under 10 years of age. They had a large family and only those showing on the 1850 Census are known. He married Cynthia, born 1805, in Georgia. She was living with son Aaron in 1880.

Robert Hood Tate died testate in 1864. His will was dated April 8, 1864 in Grundy County, TN. Do not have the probate date. Wife Cynthia, son Aaron V. Tate, and grand daughter Harriet Webb, her small son, Aaron Woodlee Webb. Exor. Sedon Brown. Witness: Enoch Woodlee."

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Robert had a very large family. No delineation has been located yet to determine which children were of his first wife (Suzannah), or second (Cynthia). Therefore, all children (except the last) are listed under Suzannah.

The Mentzel book lists a second daughter named Jennie who married Robert Mitchell. Also living with them in 1850 Census were William Tate and Ellen Tate, probably grandchildren.

Children of ROBERT TATE and SUZANNAH are:

"According to the Federal Census of 1880, Barry County, MO, Aaron V. Tate was exempt from working on road, a cripple, living with his mother in 1880, single. He is thought to be offspring of the second family, mother Cynthia."

 

16. ALEXANDER3 TATE (ROBERT (JR.)2, ROBERT (SR.)1) was born Abt. 1783 in Russell County, VA, and died 1847 in McMinnville, Warren County, TN. He married DELILAH HENDERSON 1803. She was born Abt. 1782 in Canada, and died Unknown.

Notes for ALEXANDER TATE:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Alexander lived at Big Moccasin Creek, a spur of Clinch Mountain and on the Holston River, Russell County, VA. He may have been a minor when his father Robert Tate signed his will on July 29, 1796 (executed February 3, 1807), Russell County, VA. He married Delilah Henderson, a Canadian girl. Alexander remained in Virginia until the settlement of his father's estate in 1816. He purchased 100 acres on August 5, 1817, in Warren County, TN. This was witnessed by John and Robert Tate. He and his brother John settled on Dry Creek on the line of Warren and what became Van Buren County, TN out of McMinnville, TN. He died there intestate in 1847. His administrator was Douglas Tate*. ) (Inv. date torn out.)

In 1820 they were living in Warren County, TN with three sons under 10, a daughter, under 10. In 1830 two boys, one 15-20, the other 10-15, the daughter 15-20. Apparently one son died before 1830.

"Alexander lived on a farm situated on Dry Creek, a tributary of the Collins River located in the southern end of Warren County. McMinnville was the "Court" town of Warren County. The Collins River rises in the extreme south end of Grundy County. It empties into the Caney Fork River at Rock Island in the north end of Warren County. McMinnville is about miles from the closest place any of the five Tate brothers lived. The river course is entirely rural."

Notes for AARON TATE:

Excerpt from Tate Families of the Southern States, Volume II, 1984, by Laura W. Mentzel & Ethel S. Updike

Aaron Tate had several land grants in Warren County, TN and lived for some time adjoining his brother Robert H. Tate who sold his home place on January 12, 1819. He lived on Wannamaker Branch, a tributary of the Collins River in Warren County, TN, a planter. In 1820 they had a large family but we know they didn't marry until 1810, consequently it is thought that on their help was counted on the Census. By 1840 they migrated to Dekalb County, AL. They lived near Fort Payne, Dekalb County, AL for many years. He died and was buried near the same.

Notes from the Estate Files of Aaron Tate, Sr., John Tate, Elizabeth Connelly Tate, and Maben Dock Tate, all late of Dekalb County, Alabama, by Roland Tate, descendant.

AARON TATE:

A personal note is as follows; many of the documents one would expect to find in these estate files are missing, and may never be recovered. In the course of trying to arrange and flatten these files for a forthcoming microfilming, I found that the papers had been misfiled between folders and some were difficult to read from their mishandling and abuse over the years, as well as poor penmanship and some illiteracy on the part of the initiators. For my part, I will hit the high points for the purpose of genealogy.

I found no documents requesting assignment as Administrator for the Estate and no document where the Bond was signed for the Estate. Aaron's date of death has been given as June of 1862, but I found no confirmation of that. It is clear that by January 12, 1863, Elizabeth Connelly Tate and Elias Killian were the Administrators, because they made application on that date to sell most of the lands of the Estate to Daniel Killian for $900.00. This would include the NE ¼ of the SE ¼, of Section 14, the NE ¼ of the NW !/4, the SE ¼ of the NW ¼, the W ½ of the NW ¼ , and the W ½ of the SW ¼ , excepting the SW ¼ of the SW ¼ (Description not included - all in Section 13, Township 7 South, Range8 East of the Huntsville Meridian).

On January 20, 1863, Elizabeth signed her consent to sell her Third part dower in the lands above. At some point in time, an apprenticeship Bond was entered into the Estate settlement. This Bond was made for the apprenticeship of Thomas Cunningham, a Sixteen year old minor (Born - 16 October 1622), and was signed July 14, 1838.

On March 25, 1864, John N. Franklin, Probate Judge, issued citations for the Court to be held the 2nd Monday in April. Summoned were: Elizabeth Killian, wife of Elias Killian; Maburn Tate; Aaron Tate; Robert Tate; Elizabeth Little, wife of William Little; John K. Hoge, Guardian ad Litem of the minor heirs " William Tate (a space) John Tate, Elizabeth Little wife of Thomas Little - decd."

Here, is the explanation for a number of things. Ethel Updike had a family chart that listed the Eleven children of Aaron Tate, but in view of the numbers found in the old census records changed it to Fourteen. She likewise indicated that no trace could be found of William. In her Book, Tate Families of the Southern States - Vol. II, she brings in the statement of Hood Tate that Stephen that died at Shiloh was a nephew of John and not a son. Here, I can but draw one conclusion. William Tate was married and had Three children; Elizabeth Louise who married Thomas Little, Stephen who died at Shiloh, and John, who married Elizabeth Weaver and died before May 06, 1863. William and his wife probably both died early on while the children were quite young.

On March 02, 1870, the court issued a citation to Elizabeth to file the account for final settlement. Again there are missing documents. A document confirming that James Cunningham and Susannah Cunningham had signed Power of Attorney to J. H. Davis, relating to this Estate, was signed in Comanche Co., Texas May 08, 1871, and was entered in this file.

Notes for JOSEPH TATE:

Excerpts from Tate Families of the Southern States, Volume II, by Laura Mentzel and Ethel Updike, 1984

Joseph Tate, born CA 1777, Russell County, VA was the son of William and Elizabeth (?) Tate. That the two Joseph Tates had a spouse by the name of Margaret or Peggy is shown by deeds. On October 30, 1804, Joseph Tate and Robert Tate sold to Joseph Tate, 75 acres on both sides of Moccasin Creek on a direct course to exclude the house, lower end of a tract of 145 acres which was granted on December 15, 1792 to Joel Hobbs and bequeathed by the last will of William Tate on September 15, 1803 to the sons Joseph and Robert Tate, witnessed by John and Isaac Tate and Richard Davis

On October 1, 1805 Joseph Tate and wife, Peggy, to Robert Tate, 51 acres. On Big Moccasin Creek adj. Richard Davis and William Hullams. Signed by Joseph Tate, Peggy Tate, witnessed by the same persons.

On February 3, 1806, Joseph Tate and Margaret Tate of Russell County, VA sold to William Hullams, 70 acres, both sides of Moccasin Creek, direct line so as to exclude the house, lower end of tract granted to Joel Hobbs on December 15, 1792 containing 145 acres which was bequeathed to Joseph and Robert Tate by Will of William Tate September 5, 1803. This family probably left Russell County, VA at that time, however, it is not known by compiler where they settled.

Robert Fugate was born in 1789 in Russell County, VA, son of Colbert and Hannah Tate Fugate. He married September 13, 1810 to Esther Seymour. A pretty, old, brick house on State route 71, near Grassy Creek in Russell County, Va was the home of Robert Fugate. It was built prior to the civil War. Robert was a Justice of the Peace for Russell County, a Surveyor and an Engineer. He joined the Methodist Church in 1818 and nearby the old brick home, he built a brick church, long since torn down. It was named "Esther's Chapel" in honor of his wife. At the time slavery was abolished he owned 18 slaves. Their ages and birth dates were kept on a sheet of paper inserted into the family bible. Some of these slaves stayed on with the Fugate family after emancipation.

Notes for JAMES DOUGLAS TATE:

Riverside Cemetery, Warren County, TN:

Tate. J.D. 21 May 1839-20 Aug 1902 James Douglas "Dug", son of Douglas and Sarah (Price) Tate, husband of Mary Jane McGregor

Tate, Mary Jane 24 Sep 1835-3 Oct 1911 [Daughter of Ezekiel and Mary (McGee) McGregor, wife of James Douglas "Dug" Tate, married 13 January 1858]

This marriage is recorded in Marriage Book A, Page 45.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In going through the Tate book, I found this individual's history quite confusing. The book says that this James Douglas is the son of John Tate, b ca 1783, (brother of our Alexander). It also shows his mother as Leddicia (Dicey) Hogg, b 1783. It is hard for me to believe that Dicey had this son when she was over 50. But, the book says they were in Warren County, TN at the time that this James was born and married. Maybe there was a second wife that is not recorded. Some other researchers suspect that this individual did not exist, but is a confusion.

The book also mentions that he may have been the James to settle in Barry Co, MO. (At this point, I believe the author confused this James with Jahiel's John Douglas who the book says:

"married Mary E. Westfall, born 1844 in Missouri, a daughter of Naomi Westfall, born 1808 in Virginia who was living with the family in the 1880 Barry County, MO Census".

Reference: Clyde E. Durnil, Fed. Census 1850 Warren County, TN, page 43-266; 1880 Berry County, MO

In reference to the Riverside Cemetery and Marriage Book records, we know that Jahiel had a James Alexander and a John Douglas, I'm not aware of any James Douglas. Jahiel's John Douglas only lived in Warren County until he was about 11 years old when the whole family moved to Texas County, MO.

Joseph and his wife, Elizabeth, left TN and moved to AL around 1835 and then moved to Dade County, GA, where Joseph died before 1840.

Davidson Tate moved to Dekalb County, AL in the 1830's and I think that is where Joseph went as well. Davidson later moved back to

Notes from Sue Forrester:

Okay, notice the dates... the first date was August 1853, the next dates were April 1866... a difference of 13 years.

I checked back on the 1840 and 1850 Dade County census, John, James and Joseph fit with the sons of Elizabeth Wilkerson on the 1850 census. Who was William and where did he come from? He wasn't on either the 1840 or 50 Dade County census... and why did he make a recovery attempt after 13 years? Could Joseph have been William Joseph?

None of the daughters, including Louisa and her husband, William Smith Jones, were included. While this would prove the sons, it won't help prove Elizabeth. Unless, there is something under Jones and/or Wilkerson/Wilkinson which mention LL 184, 10th district. I couldn't find where Joseph Tate (Sr) purchased this property which doesn't really surprise me. Dade County was formed from Walker Co 25 Dec 1837. Walker was formed from Murray Co in 1833. If this property was purchased (and it appears so) before Joseph died and before 1840, it was probably listed in Walker Co GA. They had a courthouse fire on 8 Feb 1883 which destroyed all records. Dade Co's first courthouse fire was April 1853. NOW, if it was purchased between 1832 and 1833 it could possibly be recorded in Murray Co GA. Chatsworth is the county seat and it is a good distance from us.

In deed book D, page 21 and 21, 7 Nov 1853, Jane M. Tanner, executrix of Thomas L. Tanner, sold lot of land 184, 10th district, to John Wigley for $50.00. It was witnessed by James Worthington and recorded by James M. Hall, Clerk. On the same page, deed dated 7 Nov 1853, John Wigley sold to Harvey Walker for $100.00 on a quit claim deed, "had or may have had two-seventh part of lot of land lot 184, 10th district". Signed John Wigley. No witness, recorded by James M. Hall, Clerk on Dec 15, 1853.

Thomas Tanner was said to have been the first white man in Dade County. I don't know when he came to Dade County, but do know of another white man who was here in the 1820's. I went back to check on land purchased by Thomas Tanner and found where he purchased land around 184 (including 185 and others) but NOT 184. Since the courthouse burned in April 1853, all of the deeds that were recorded with dates prior to April 1853 were recorded or recorded late. I checked the Georgia Cherokee Land Lottery (1832) and land lot 184, 10th district was awarded to a James B. Head of Gwinnett County GA. Very few of those who won land in north Georgia on this land lottery actually came to the area. Instead they sold the property to someone who wanted to come here or to a land dealer. Most were sold to land dealers. So whatever happened to that land did so after 1832. When did Joseph Tate and Thomas Tanner purchase it, I don't know, as there was nothing recorded prior to Jane Tanner selling as stated above.

Now, a little something else I found... E. D. Graham was attorney in fact for a lot of people. It appears he made his living searching out deeds that had loop holes, then went out to find the people.

Notes for JAMES L. TATE:

Notes from Peggy Coleman:

There was a James L Tate who served in Co E 50th Tennessee Infantry CSA. This regiment was raised in that area. Could this be the same James L. Tate?

My James L. did not enlist voluntarily. (Chicken?) The story goes this way. He was lying in bed sick when some soldiers from the northern side came through and "enlisted" him. He served a very short period as it seems was customary. He hid in a cave close to his home and when he was hungry he would flash a mirror toward the sun to let his wife know he was hungry. She would then take a basket with food to him under the guise of picking up twigs for firewood. I don't know if the cave hiding took place before or after he was "enlisted" but I suspect it was before and that he maybe got a cold from being in the cave. The story also in enriched by the fact that his wife is supposed to have met a bear once while on her way to the cave. This story was told by their grandson and has also been told to me by my great aunt who is of the same generation. We have also been told that his wife killed one of the Northern soldiers. I have heard this from several people also, ones who knew her personally. It's told that while Grandpa was "enlisted" that three Northern soldiers came to the house for food and water. After they left Grandma told her children that "that one" will be back tonight and when he comes back they were to hide. The man did come back, they did hide under the stairs. Later they heard a thud, thud, thud, coming down the stairs. The man had taken Grandma upstairs to rape her but she had other plans in mind. She bend down and took a knife out of her boot and stabbed him. The thud, thud, thud was Grandma dragging him back down the stairs. She threw him into a hole and covered him up. They said you could see blood stains on the floor where she had stabbed him. I don't doubt it because Grandma was one tough cookie. You talk about Indian blood. I feel like my Tates have Indian blood because of the shape of their foreheads and cheeks. Grandma was a Myers and you can see Indian blood in her. Grandma was born in TN but I do not know where. I have a picture of Grandma and Grandpa together but it is the oval type and is big so I could not copy it anyway to send it so you might get an idea of what he looks like. Sorry about that.

TATE October 18, 1839, daughter of AARON TATE and ELIZABETH CONNELLY. She was born 1821 in Warren County, TN, and died January 28, 1852 in Pulaski Co, KY.

Notes for JAHAZIEL H. (TWIN) TATE:

Excerpts from "Tate Families of Southern States", Metzel and Updike, 1984

Jahaziel married four times; (1) to a bride of whom we know little, except she died early leaving three sons, Andrew J., John S., and James Tate who were living with the Samuel Dykes' family in the 1850 Census of Grundy County, TN. Possibly the Dykes family were the grandparents of them since rural people always find room for their own kin. He was married to (2) Sarah A. Tate, on October 18, 1839, by Justice of the Peace, W. F. Mooney (M. P. 1836 - 7, 8 and 9.) She was born 1821, age 29 on the 1850 Census of Warren County, TN and died on January 28, 1852, in Pulaski County, AR. Her family was opposed to the marriage. They, however, eloped and settled near Little Rock, Pulaski County, AR. He married (3) Lavinia "Vina" who was born in 1810 in MS. He married (4) Nancy who was born April 5, 1824 in Hinds County, TX; she died on December 7, 1893 in Poetry, TX. Her parents were born in AL and VA respectively.

It is said that he suffered from epileptic seizures and never traveled alone. He lived to be an elderly man and died on August 4, 1888 testate, buried with wife Nancy, eight miles from Terrill, Poetry, Kaufman, County, TX in the Dry Creek Cemetery. Issue born in Warren County, TN or Little Rock, Pulaski County, AR.

In a letter dated May 16, 1978 from Pearl Tate Sanders to James Striegel Tate she writes:

"As you can see by these Census records of Jahaziel Tate (note that his name is spelled three different ways), three wives were named Sarah, Lavina and Nancy. I think he had another (first) wife because my grandfather, martin Van Buren Tate was born in 1843 and his half-brother, Andrew Jackson was born about 1833 - ten years earlier. I have a copy of the Will of J. H. Tate, dated 1883 at Kaufman County, Texas. In it he names wife Nancy, sons, Jackson Tate, M. V. Tate and John S. Tate. (I had never heard of son John before this)."

"The only information I have on Jahaziel is what my father, Homer M. Tate told me. Martin V. B. and his father Jahaziel seemed close as a father and son. Jahaziel was a school teacher and M. V. B. Tate used to ride double behind his father to school. They both went off to the Civil War together, but were sent to different places. Jahaziel was captured and due to difficult conditions there, his health suffered later in life. My father always went with him on his daily walks, for if he (Jahaziel) had a 'spell' and fell, Dad would have to run for help. Jahaziel accompanied son M. V. B. Tate to Poetry, Texas where he and wife Nancy are now buried."

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Excerpt from "Tate Families of Southern States", Metzel and Updike, 1984

He kept the Old Family Bible of the births of his siblings, called "That Book". Though he was of the first family of James Tate, (and Ruth), he was very fond of the second family. After his wife, Jane died, when she was only 45 years old, (and was buried in Shiloh Cemetery, Warren County) Elan moved to Decatur County in 1870. It is assumed that Elan and his family went and lived in Decatur County because Elizabeth (James second wife) went there to live with the Bost family in her later years. He died leaving two sons and four grand children, the oldest was an orphaned girl less than four years old.

Notes for SOPHRONIA (PHRONIE) ELIZABETH TATE:

See notes on the Family of Thompson and Sophronia Dunnegan under Thompson Dunnegan.

Notes for THOMPSON DUNNEGAN:

The Family of Thompson and Sophronia Dunnegan, compiled by Carol E. Vaughan, Lexington, KY

Thompson lived with his father, Absalom, and remaining family members in White or Warren Counties, TN until around 1835 when he started his own family. His mother apparently died before 1830. Thompson married Sophronia Elizabeth Tate, daughter of Alexander Tate and Delilah Henderson. She was born around 1810 in VA or TN. It was said that Sophronia was "born with a veil" which, according to Appalachian folklore, could mean that she may have had an extra sensory "gift" or "powers." Certainly, she was held in high esteem since two of her granddaughters were named for her. Thompson and Sophronia had seven children, six of which were born in TN.

Thompson and Sophronia made their home in Warren County, TN in the Civil District 2 community of Campaign. He appears on the Tax Lists of 1836 and 1838 which show him as having 100 acres of land. The only record of land transactions found in TN was a Trust Deed dated April 25, 1838 in which a George Cole pays off a debt Thompson owed to Miller and Pennen for interest and possible sale of property. They lived in Warren County at the time of the 1850 Census but moved to Missouri shortly after that count. Their seventh child, Leander was born in MO in 1854. In the 1860 Census they are shown living in Iron County, MO with all seven children. By 1870, the family had settled in the town of Greenville in Wayne County, MO. Jane, Mary L., and Irvin were still living with them. James Elgin and William Samuel were married and living in Iron County. Sarah C. had married George B. Wallace by that time. The 1870 Census shows a Samuel Spears, farm laborer from TN, living with Thompson and Sophronia. We believe that Samuel was the son of Nancy Dunnegan and James Spears. At this time, Nancy is thought to have been Thompson's sister.

The dates and places of death for Thompson and Sophronia are unknown. The last record of Sophronia is shown on a deed dated March 22, 1879 in which she and Thompson sold a parcel of land in Wayne County to Emmanuel Lovelace. In another deed dated June 22, 1880, Thompson and his second wife, Sarah (Sallie) E. Foquaide sell a parcel of land to Irvin George Dunnegan. No evidence has been found to pinpoint the date of his death...only that he was still living in 1880. Nor, have any cemetery records been found showing their burial in Wayne or Iron Counties. There is a possibility that both were buried in a part of Old Greenville, located on the St. Francis River, which has been under water since the creation of Wappapello Dam.

A record of Thompson's marriage to Sarah E. Foquaide was found in Iron County. They were married April 14, 1880. The 1880 Census shows Thompson as head of household, 70 years old, farmer from VA, with his wife Sarah, 48 years old from TN. Also are listed two children, John (17) son, and Frances (11) daughter. The surname Dunnegan is shown for these children, but I do not believe that Thompson adopted them since their real names show up on later records. It is possible that Thompson died in St. Louis. Sally is shown living there in the 1890 Census but, most likely, she moved there after Thompson died.

Notes for DELILAH JANE DUNNEGAN:

Notes from Carol E. Vaughan

Delila Jane (Jane) may have been the family's "old maid." In the 1860 and 1870 Censuses she is still living with her parents. In 1880, she is counted with the family of William Samuel Dunnegan (her brother). In 1910 she was living with Sarah C. and S. B. Wallace in Poplar Bluff, MO. Genevieve remembers stories about when "Aunt Jane" would come to stay with Granddaddy's family. Evidently, she was pretty strict....Grandaddy poured too much syrup on his biscuits one morning and she made him use the same syrup each morning until it was all used up! Her mother Sophronia must have died in the early 1870's. Jane shared time between her siblings homes after her mother's death.

He married (2) RACHEL KATHERINE KIMBRO Abt. 1870 in MO. She was born 1830 in AR, and died Abt. 1900 in Fannin County, TX.

Notes for JAHIEL DOUGLAS TATE:

Texas County, Missouri was formerly Ashley County. Texas County was organized February 14, 1845 from Shannon and Wright Counties. The new County was named for the Lone Star State. Houston, the county seat, was named for General Sam Houston, the "hero" of San Jacinto. Townships in the county are Boone, Burdine, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Current, Date, Jackson, Lynch, Morris, Ozark, Pierce, Piney, Roubidoux, Sargent, Sherrill, and Upton. The Texas County courthouse was destroyed during the Civil War, it burned on February 12, 1881 and again on December 14, 1930.

Douglas and Sarah (Price) Tate, the former of whom was born in Warren County Tenn., and the latter in Jackson County ALA., who came with their family to Sherrill Township., Texas County, Missouri in 1852 and settled on a farm in Texas County where they spent the remainder of their lives. Douglas Tate and wife were the parents of 11 children of whom Louisa Tally was the fourth in order of birth.

The names and ages of children born in Warren County, TN were confirmed by the Warren County, TN 1850 Census. On that Census it indicates that he was a farmer whose land was worth approximately $300.

He married his second wife, Rachael C., a widow with three daughters. E., b. 1855; Harriett McLaughlin, b. 1860 AR and Adaline McLaughlin, b. 1862, AR. These children were listed in the Sherill, Texas County Census of 1870, pg 479-34 and 1880, pg 368-272.

Census: 1850, Warren County, TN

Occupation: Farmer

Notes for SARAH PRICE:

It is believed that Sarah married (Jahiel) Douglas in or around Jackson County, AL and lived there during the birth of her first three children. The 1850 Warren County Census shows that James D., and John D. with Alabama birth places. Since Sophronia who died when young and was not listed on this Census, was the second born, she was probably born in AL too. This same Census shows Sarah and "Douglass" living in Warren County, with additional children, Louisa Adeline, Lorenzo D., and America M. In 1852 she moved with Douglas from Warren County, TN to Sherrill Township, Texas County, MO with five of their children. It is believed that she died some time shortly after the birth of Julia in 1857. She was about 33 when she died.

 

Notes for RACHEL KATHERINE KIMBRO:

EARLY HISTORY OF PIONEER PULASKI COUNTY FAMILIES April 2, 1961

"The History of the McLaughlin and Wood Families"

written by Mrs. Mary Lane, of Duke, MO

Part One

My grandfather, Marcus McLaughlin, came to this country from Ireland when he was 19 years old. He had two brothers who lived in Tennessee. He married there and there is where he met my grandmother, Catherine Kimbro and they got married and moved to Batesville, Arkansas.

The Civil War broke out in 1861 and grandfather joined up with the south and his two brothers said they wouldn't join either side. Grandmother had a brother and he didn't join either side so they all left together and went out west. Grandfather never heard from his

brothers and didn't know what happened to them. It had been over two years when grandmother heard from her brother and he was in Texas.

The war was about over and the soldiers moved to Dew Balls Bluff, Arkansas. Then granpa got in touch with grandma and told her to take the children and what she could and meet him in Rolla, Mo. He was still at Dew Balls Bluff in camp. When peace was made he got an honorable discharge and would be on his way to Rolla, Mo.

Grandma started out with a cart and a yoke of oxen pulling it. Her and the children made it to Hutton Valley where the bushwhackers overtook her and robbed her and took everything she had. She had $300.00 in gold and silver coins. She had it in a money belt around her waist and it rubbed her side and she had took it off for a few days and sealed it up in the corner of the feather bed. Grandfather gave her

this money he had collected and told her to hold on to it and he would see her in Rolla, Mo.

The bushwhackers took the feather bed and she followed one half mile and begged and cried for the feather bed for her children to sleep on. There was a guy in the bunch that only had one eye. Grandma had a pair of new brogans shoes on. The brogan shoes were made of hard and stiff leather and this one eyed man told her she could have her dammed old dirty feather bed if she would pull off her shoes and give them to him. So that is what she done. She sat right down and pulled off her new shoes and that left her barefooted. He was standing on the wagon or cart and she handed her shoes up to him. He took the shoes and kicked the feather bed off the wagon. She said it didn't hit the ground until she grabbed it and sat on it, until they drove out of sight.

The bushwhackers went on down the road and when they turned the corner and got out of sight she ripped the corner of the feather bed open and got the money out and put it around her waist and never took it off until she got to Rolla, Mo.

Can you imagine how heavy $300.00 in gold and silver coins were? She and the children walked on to Rolla. She left the feather bed by the side of the road.

During this time peace was declared and the war was over and then grandpa got very sick with the fever. He told two of his buddies to find grandma when they got to Rolla, Mo., that he wasn't going to make it. And he gave these two men what money he had and told them to

give it to grandma and tell her of his death. He was buried at Dew Ball Bluff, Arkansas.

Part Two

The railroad had a line from St. Louis to Rolla, Mo. Grandma met every freight train that came. There were soldiers hanging on the sides and on top and all over but no grandpa. The last train that came brought the sad news. Those two men found granma and told her the sad news and gave her the money.

In these Civil War days there were bushwhackers and marauders that did much destruction and damaged homes and people. Supply wagons during the Civil War days were burned by the rebels. Just before dusk on a Monday evening a supply train May 24, 1862, bound for Springfield, Mo., consisting of 17 wagons loaded with bacon was overtaken by a band of Marauders belonging to Colemands Band who let the mules lose from the wagons and turned them loose and set the wagons afire. They saved a small amount of the bacon but the

rest was burned and completely destroyed and only a few of the mules were recovered.

Then on Tuesday a train came through consisting of 25 wagons bound for the Army beyond Houston, Mo. and they were attacked by the band of Marauders and rebels. The mules were cut loose from 13 wagons. Five of them belonged to Captain

McKays train loaded with Ordinance Stores was taken with the rest of the wagons was set afire before the work of destruction was completed.

Lt. Segit, who with a squad of cavalry men was escorting another wagon train in the rear, they drove the rebels pickets and the thieving crowd took to their heels and fled.

Here is the genealogy of grandpa Marcus and Grandma Catherine McLaughlin. They had 7 children, Wiley, Marcus (nicknamed Bud), Mary, Harriet and Addie, Carl died when he was young and a baby died in infancy. Grandma lived in Rolla until all the children were about grown. Wiley and Marcus (Bud) went to a farm on Big Piney river at Slabtown, MO. and worked for a Mrs. Miriam Merrell. This is where my dad (Wiley) got his first horse he ever owned. He worked on this farm one year for room and board and for the horse and feed.

Later years Grandma moved from Rolla to Licking, Mo. She met a Mr Douglas Tate and they married and had two children, one girl Emmie and one boy Tommy. He died when he was about 15 weeks old. Later years Mr. Tate died and grandma was left alone again. She lived west of Licking on a 40 acre farm that she just had a lifetime dowery in it.

Then Emmie married Willie McGuire and they lived close to grandma. Then they moved to Texas and grandma was left to herself. Later grandma went to Texas where Emmie and Willie were. Later she came back a couple of times and visited Dad and Mom

and two of Dads sisters Addie and Harriet. My dads name was Wiley McLaughlin.

Part Three

I don't have any history on Addie, but Harriet married Tom Crook, and he had been married before and had children by his first wife. They left Missouri and went to Arkansas and they had two children, Frank and Lucy and they were 10 and 12 years old when they separated.

Mr. Crook took Jim by his first wife and went to the state of Washington. He had been in the Army and drew a small pension. No one ever heard of him again. Harriet kept Frank and Lucy and she worked for a Dr. Hutchinson at Calico Rock, Arkansas.

Harriet took sick and died suddenly. The doctor didn't know anything about her folks, so he found grandmas address in some of Harriet papers and wrote and told grandma about Harriet's death and that she was buried in Arkansas. The doctor had Frank and Lucy.

Grandma wrote my dad (Wiley) McLaughlin and told him that Harreit was dead and buried that for him to go get Frank and Lucy. and bring them to his house. So Wiley got his brother, Markus to go with him and they went to Arkansas in a covered wagon with a team of horses. It took over a week to make the trip. They got Frank and Lucy and returned home. The children stayed about three weeks and grandma came from Texas and visited a month and she took Frank and Lucy home with her to Texas.

Lucy married a Mr. Will Pratt, and Frank married a Emmie Skeen. Frank and wife Emmie were married December 24, 1905 at Bonhan, Texas. They had nine children, Freeman, Lila, Cecil, Bob, Mrs Ruby Joplin, Leonard Blunt from Clarkesville, Texas, Mrs. Mamie Zeliff and Bennett Red is from Dallas, Texas, and Jessie Nolin lived in Texas. The youngest son passed away.

Frank and Emmie and son came to see my brother Columbus McLaughlin and I a few years ago. Thomas was a traveling salesman and they were on their way up north and Frank and Emmie (Skeen) Crook came to Red River County, Texas in 1914. They had 24 grandchildren. The last I heard from them was when they celebrated their 53 wedding anniversary. He was 83 years old and she was 77 years old.

Wiley McLaughlin met my mother Grace Ellen Victoria Wood at Big Piney, Mo. The first name Big Piney has been called Post Oak Flatts.

Dad and mother were married July 10, 1881 and lived on my mother's farm on the Big Piney River the second farm above the Ross Farm or bridge. My oldest brother, Columbus was born there October 8, 1882. Mother wasn't well living so close to the river. She had chills and fever. The doctor told her to to move and get away from the river. So they traded the river farm for a ridge farm on Musgrave Hollow at Palace, MO. The rest of their children were born there. There were 8 of us children, Columbus, Mark, Samuel, Rufus, Clarence, Newton, Belle, and Mary. Columbus and Mae Carrell married November 10, 1907. They had seven children Altha, Meda, Alta, Hazel Shirley and two boys, Lawrence and Warren.

Notes for JAHAZIEL H. (TWIN) TATE:

Excerpts from "Tate Families of Southern States", Metzel and Updike, 1984

Jahaziel married four times; (1) to a bride of whom we know little, except she died early leaving three sons, Andrew J., John S., and James Tate who were living with the Samuel Dykes' family in the 1850 Census of Grundy County, TN. Possibly the Dykes family were the grandparents of them since rural people always find room for their own kin. He was married to (2) Sarah A. Tate, on October 18, 1839, by Justice of the Peace, W. F. Mooney (M. P. 1836 - 7, 8 and 9.) She was born 1821, age 29 on the 1850 Census of Warren County, TN and died on January 28, 1852, in Pulaski County, AR. Her family was opposed to the marriage. They, however, eloped and settled near Little Rock, Pulaski County, AR. He married (3) Lavinia "Vina" who was born in 1810 in MS. He married (4) Nancy who was born April 5, 1824 in Hinds County, TX; she died on December 7, 1893 in Poetry, TX. Her parents were born in AL and VA respectively.

It is said that he suffered from epileptic seizures and never traveled alone. He lived to be an elderly man and died on August 4, 1888 testate, buried with wife Nancy, eight miles from Terrill, Poetry, Kaufman, County, TX in the Dry Creek Cemetery. Issue born in Warren County, TN or Little Rock, Pulaski County, AR.

His will: J. H. Tate, June 22, 1880, Kaufman County, TX, wife Nancy: To sons, Jackson, John S. and M. V. Tate, to the Methodist Church So, witnessed by H. W. Rogers, James McDonald, and J. T. Daniel. Signed September 29, 1880.

In a letter dated May 16, 1978 from Pearl Tate Sanders to James Striegel Tate she writes:

"As you can see by these Census records of Jahaziel Tate (note that his name is spelled three different ways), three wives were named Sarah, Lavina and Nancy. I think he had another (first) wife because my grandfather, martin Van Buren Tate was born in 1843 and his half-brother, Andrew Jackson was born about 1833 - ten years earlier. I have a copy of the Will of J. H. Tate, dated 1883 at Kaufman County, Texas. In it he names wife Nancy, sons, Jackson Tate, M. V. Tate and John S. Tate. (I had never heard of son John before this)."

"The only information I have on Jahaziel is what my father, Homer M. Tate told me. Martin V. B. and his father Jahaziel seemed close as a father and son. Jahaziel was a school teacher and M. V. B. Tate used to ride double behind his father to school. They both went off to the Civil War together, but were sent to different places. Jahaziel was captured and due to difficult conditions there, his health suffered later in life. My father always went with him on his daily walks, for if he (Jahaziel) had a 'spell' and fell, Dad would have to run for help. Jahaziel accompanied son M. V. B. Tate to Poetry, Texas where he and wife Nancy are now buried."

JOHN TATE:

On May 06, 1863, Elizabeth (Weaver) Tate, Samuel Weaver, A. Frazier, and G. W. Malone signed a bond, and application for the appointment of Elizabeth Tate and John B. Frazier as Administrators of the Estate of John Tate was made. They qualified as Administrators on February 18, 1867.

July 10, 1867, a petition was made for a distribution to be made to the John Tate Estate from the Aaron Tate Estate. Apparently, a distribution was made. Elizabeth Tate promptly made application for the sale of the John Tate lands to pay John's debts. A petition for a guardian's fair share of the Estate was denied and was set at a 1/30th. Part.

September 11, 1867, a John Tate Estate accounting was made, and the expenses for the children were obviously inflated. Then another accounting was made on February 26, 1869. Elizabeth listed well in excess of $6,000 in tuition, board, and clothing for her minor children, Mary "Polly" Ann Tate, Aaron Tate, and Hannah Elizabeth Tate. A distribution was made which included the widow, the children, and interest on the admin. expenses for the estate for 5 years. Elizabeth resigned as Administrator of the Estate. The Judge asked for Two men who knew the land and the heirs of John Tate to give him an evaluation and description of the land. A voucher for legal services was submitted on March 16, 1869.

July 22, 1869, the Two men requested on February 26th gave testimony in verification of the lands described as the SE ¼ of the Se ¼ of Section 14 and the SW ¼ of the SW ¼ of Section 13, both in Township 7S, Range 8E of the Huntsville Meridian.

He was mentioned in his father's will of June 22, 1880 in Kaufman County, TX. However, I don't think John S. ever lived outside of TN. He was living with his brother Andrew Jackson Tate and James Tate in 1850 in the Samuel Dykes home. His father has been married to Sarah Tate for eleven years so it is thought they were living with their grandparents' family. In 880, the family was living in Altamont, Grundy County, TN.

Notes for MARTIN VAN BUREN TATE:

Excerpt from the Tate Families of Southern States, Volume II, Laura Metzel and Ethel Speer Updike, 1984

Martin Van Buren and his family lived in TX before moving to OK. The Tate family joined the Mormon Church in Oklahoma Indian Territory at the time Andrew Kimball, Father of Spencer Kimball, was Mission President of the area.

Martin V. and his wife, Margaret moved from Spanish Fork, Utah to Arizona during the summer of 1898. With them were seven of their then, nine children. The two older girls, Maggie and Myrtle, then 16 and 17 years old, remained in Spanish Fork, working for individual families. The seven children who came to Arizona were Homer, Nellie, Bessie, Gracie, Mable, Alma and Ruth.

In 1894, the Tate family moved to Utah. and settled in Spanish Fork. The winters in Utah affected Margaret's arthritis so severely, they felt a warmer climate would give her more relief. When Martin heard that Andrew Kimball was being called to preside as Stake President over the St. Joseph Stake, he sought his advice concerning moving the Tate family to Arizona. On the recommendation of President Andrew Kimball, the Tates started for Arizona with all their possessions in two wagons. One wagon was pulled by mules, the other by horses. martin V. drove one wagon and Homer, age 13, drove the other. They arrived in Central in the late summer of 1898. The only available housing at the time was an empty grainery located near the church and school. The tenth child of the Tate family, Zina Myrtle, was born in Central. Martin V. and his family stayed in Central a little more than six years. In order to provide better for the large family, they moved to Globe, AZ where they started a boarding house for the miners. This gave an opportunity to put the girls of the family to work. The Tate family eventually moved back to the Gila Valley locating permanently in Thatcher, AZ.

In the Gila Valley, daughter Nellie Bly married her Central school teacher, Spencer C. Heywood. Homer M. married his neighbor, Emma Pearl Coombs of Central.

Notes for HOMER MARTIN TATE:

Excerpt from the Tate Families of Southern States, Volume II, Laura Metzel and Ethel Speer Updike, 1984

He was a Sherriff of Graham County, AZ 1924 - 1929, a farmer. Many may remember Homer as the practical joker of the town. He moved to Central in the late summer of 1898 with his father, Martin Van Buren Tate from Spanish Fork, UT at the age of thirteen.

It seems Homer attended school in Central only a very short time. He worked at odd jobs on the farms until he was seventeen years old, when he began working in the mines. He found work at such places as Pierce, Bisbee, Glove, AZ and in Cananea, Mexico.

Emma Pearl Coombs was born in Central, AZ, the eighth child of George and Pauline Gulbransen Coombs, Jr. All Emma's formal education was received in the Central schools.

Homer was working at Globe, AZ in 1906-07. At this time, Emma left Central and went to work for the Tate's Boarding House in Globe. During this time a courtship blossomed into marriage, which took place in October of 1907. Homer and Emma began their married life at the new town site of Copper Hill, which consisted of a few 10 x 12 foot tents, boarded up on three sides. Here they lived for about three years while both Homer and Emma continued working, until very early in 1911. Emma returned to Central early in 1911 as the first born of the family was expected.

The Tates' first child, Martin Coombs Tate was born March 5, 1911. Since Central was a farming community, jobs were very scarce and about the only work available was helping on individual farms on a day or two, basis. So, in the early part of 1915, Homer felt he should procure work that would provide a better means of support for the family which now had an additional member, daughter Pearl. Homer went alone to Bisbee where he secured employment in the mines. Emma and their two chldren followed later after housing was secured.

In 1916, the Tates were back in Central, a mining town was not the best place to rear a family. Homer felt he should try farming as a means of providing for his family, now consisting of three children, as a second son, Goerge Vining, was born in July of 1916.

The Tates secured a house and small acreage immediately west of the railroad tracks on the old highway, known as the Thomas place. Homer farmed in Central and Pima until 1921. At this time, Homer was appointed by the Governor, G. W. P. Hunt, to the position of Detail Officer at the Boys Reformatory at Fort Grant. Emma served as Matron of the girls dormitory, located on the same site with separate facilities.

After spending a year at Ft. Grant, the Tates moved back to Central and purchased what was called the Thurman Place in the Northwest part of town. There were only about eight acres under cultivation. Alfalfa, vegetables and melons were the main crops raised. Homer was Constable of Central until December 7, 1924. During the elections of the fall of 1924, Homer was elected Sheriff of Graham County.

During the summer of 1922-1923, Homer, accompanied by a dozen Boy Scouts, climbed Mt. Graham for a week of encampment. Homer spent a good portion of the time testing the bravery of the boys, mainly by concocting ways to scare them. On one occasion after visiting the old sawmill and on their return hike to camp on Soldier Creek, Homer slipped ahead and concealed himself in a rather dense thicket. Previously he had told the boys that one of the men at the mill had wounded a bear, and that a wounded bear could be pretty mean. From

a thicket, Homer made sounds of a wounded bear just as the boys came by in a single file. Some track stars were born, all except for Morgan Taylor. Fear set in, along with exhaustion, and after a short sprint, Morgan yelled, "For Hell's sake Homer, wait!!", thinking that Homer was farther up the trail. About this time the "wounded" bear came out of the thicket.

The Tates moved to Safford, AZ in December, 1925 where Homer assumed the duties of Sheriff.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Excerpt from the Tate Families of Southern States, Volume II, Laura Metzel and Ethel Speer Updike, 1984

Son of Elan H. and Jane Turner Tate. Elan did not remarry after Jane's death. John, George and Martha's graves are unmarked. George was murdered in Decaturville on December 1, 1876 (Goodspeed's History says November 30, 1877 and used here). The indications are that Martha had preceded him in death. Possibly at the birth of Mattie on February 3, 1876. The records of Grov Liles trial and conviction for George's murder were lost in the Decatur County courthouse fire of 1926 so more positive information is lost.

Jane, Grover, and Bobby died before Elan H., and the three surviving sons moved to Decatur County, TN in 1870. I find no records or tombstones for Grover and Bobby. Jane is buried in Warren County, TN, near its border with Grundy County. Elan H. Tate was living with his son, John Lee. At Elan's death, Elan's papers passed through son John Lee's family ownership into the hands of Martha Angie Raspbury of Hohenwald, TN. Mrs. Raspbury supplied the information on the Issue of James and Ruth Tate and has been a close collaborator of James Striegal Tate in the compiling of this family study.

Notes for IRVIN GEORGE DUNNEGAN:

Notes from Carol E. Vaughan, great granddaughter, Lexington, KY

Irwin George, the sixth child of Thompson Dunnegan and Sophronia Tate, was born in Warren County, TN in 1849. Thompson's family had moved from VA to middle TN sometime between 1810 and 1817. After Irvin's grandfather, Absalom Dunnegan, died in White County, TN, his uncles, John and Samuel Dunnegan left that area and moved to southeast MO around 1843. After about ten years Irvin's father Thompson followed them to Iron County, MO and later to Wayne County, MO.

Irwin was a farmer and owned a sawmill in Des Arc which he sold to G. W. Graves in 1890 for one thousand dollars. He was involved in a number of land transfers in Wayne County. One of the deeds reflected an understanding between Irvin George and his father, Thompson, in which Irvin would have a parcel of land for a nominal cost and would provide elder care for Thompson. It was signed in 1880 by Thompson and his second wife, Sallie E. Foquaide.

Irvin died in 1895 of injuries resulting from a very serious accident in 1894 at a saw mill in Wayne County. Carol Vaughan remembers this version as told by her grandfather, Walter C. Dunnegan. "Granddaddy said that people would come to their house and cut off patches of their own skin to graft onto his father's are flesh in hopes that his wounds would heal. He was at home in bed a long time before he died." The following death notice in the Iron County Register paints an even more agonizing and painful death.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Iron County Register, June 20, 1895

From Des Arc

I. G. Dunnegan, who was scalded in a wreck on a log boom below Poplar Bluff last summer, was brought home last winter. All the flesh was burned off his legs from his hip down. He has suffered death a thousand times, and of late he suffered so much you could hear him hollow and take on for some distance. So the Doctors concluded to cut off one of his lets, and Sunday, Drs. Petit, Gay, Tates and Sebastian amputated his leg, but he only lived until night. Poor man! He is better off. May God help his bereaved widow and children! He will be buried at Des Arc Tuesday. June 17, 1895

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

On his grave in Mt. View Cemetery in Des Arc his epitaph reads:

"Farewell my wife and children all, From you a father Christ

doth call. Mourn not for me, it is vain to call me to your sight again."

Notes for SARAH ANNA (ANNIE) KIMMEL:

Notes from Carol E. Vaughan, great granddaughter, Lexington, KY.

In the 1900 Wayne County, MO Census, Anna was a widow with 6 children. She managed a boarding house and had 14 boarders at that time. Some of their property was sold for taxes in 1910 and it was around that time when Anna married M. A. Thompson and moved to Arkansas. Other members of her family (Kimmel) had already moved to the area around Pine Bluff.

Before 1910, Annie married M. A. Thompson and moved to Pine Bluff, AR where he owned a grocery store on Cherry Street. Walter lived with them for a while and Eddie lived most of his adult life with them. Genevieve Dunnegan Wilkes said that Eddie had a place behind his mother's house in Pine Bluff where he lived and worked as a painter. He is buried in Pine Bluff at Graceland Cemetery. Ted, struck out on his own at a young age and spent most of his life in Texas. Ida married Frank L. Baird in 1901. They lived for a while in Izard County, AR. Etta was still single in 1904 and living in/near Piedmont, MO (she did some traveling with her grandmother, Caroline Dunnegan Kimmel.) She later married Guy Hauser who worked for the railroad. After her death, Guy married his sister-in-law, Ida Dunnegan Baird, who was a widow by that time. They lived in Newport, AR, at least until the mid 1940's. Nothing is known about Charley. Annie Kimmel Dunnegan Thompson died in Newport, AR on December 3, 1944, at the home of Guy and Ida Houser. She was 84. Her death certificate shows that she had broken her hip which contributed to the cause of her death of an embolism. Since M. A. was 86 at that time, it would have been difficult for him to care for her. He (Magnus A. Thompson) was 93 when he died. He is buried in an unmarked grave next to his mother's plot in Graceland Cemetery in Pine Bluff, AR.

Notes for JAMES CALVIN ALEXANDER TATE:

Excerpt from Labor News, Galesburg, IL, November 5, 1943

"I was born October 28, 1862, down in southwestern Missouri near the town of Licking. The town got its name from a famous 'salt lick,' you know, a natural salt spring, where the wild animals came to drink the water and lick up the salt crust along the edge of the swampy pool. The 'lick' was about an acre in extent, and the animals had licked it down about ten or twelve feet. That's how much they liked salt."

"Wild ducks were so plentiful when I was a boy, that I often went hunting with a club and seldom returned home without two or three.... We had a neighbor who used a gun, and when he went to town, his wagon was loaded with ducks."

"Hunters built platforms in trees around the 'lick' and sat there nights to shoot deer and other animals. The streams were full of fish, and wild ducks and geese were to be found in every pool of water they were so plentiful. As I said before, a boy who wasn't old enough to trust with a gun, and that wasn't very old, down in Missouri those days, could and did kill them with a club or a rock thrown into a flock."

"That was soon after the close of the Civil War, and I remember the soldiers going home. They often stopped at my house for a meal or to pass the night."

"My grandfather lived with us, and, in the evenings, he would sometimes tell us about the time he fought with "Old Hickory" at New Orleans and how he and other soldiers rolled cotton bales in front of them when they advanced and took the city from the Britishers."

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

James C. Tate was a baby when his father died according to him. He came with his mother, Sarah, and stepfather, William Tazewell Gentry from Missouri to (Dickson) Tennessee around 1876. He was in (Dickson) in 1880 [U.S. Census]. He went to Nashville, Tennessee and joined the Carpenter's Union there as a Charter Member in 1886. He went to Illinois in 1892 and remained there until his death.

James C. Tate, Veteran Carpenter, Dies of Heart Attack

James C. Tate, a charter member of Carpenters and Joiners Local Union No. 360, died last Thursday evening at 10:55 following a heart attack. Mr. Tate had been in his usual health throughout the day and his death came as a great shock to his family and friends. Mr. and Mrs. Tate lived alone at 668 West north Street, the other members now living in other cities. Their daughter, Miss Myrtle Tate, who is employed in Chicago, came in Thursday evening to spend a few days with her parents and her father's death followed just a few hours after her arrival.

James Calvin Tate was born October 28, 1862, at Licking, Mo., and when young his family moved to Nashville, Tenn., where he spent his youth. He was a charter member of the Nashville Carpenters Union, which he joined in 1886. He has been a member of the International Union since that date. He went to Chicago in 1892 where he helped build the Chicago World Fair buildings. A contractor whom he knew had a contract to build a church in Galesburg and he came here in October, 1892, and has resided here since that time.

Jim Tate was active in union affairs throughout his life and held many offices of trust in the labor movement. He had served his union in all offices, including president, and was active on various committees. He had also served as president of the Galesburg Trades and Labor Assembly and had been a delegate to many State Federation of Labor conventions. Soon after coming to Galesburg he was greatly instrumental in organizing the Galesburg Labor News and had always taken keen interest in this publication. He was also active in soliciting funds for the purchase of the Labor Temple. In recent years his health would not permit the continuation of his activities but he never lost interest in the welfare of the working man. Labor has lost a truly great trade unionist in the death of Jim Tate.

Soon after coming to Galesburg, Mr. Tate was united in marriage to Miss Bertha Worden. They celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary May 18, 1943. His wife and four children survive. They are Mrs. C. J. Mulvaney, Long Beach, Calif.; Miss Myrtle Tate, Chicago; Morris Tate, Springfield, and James M. Tate, Peoria. He also leaves a sister, Mrs. Lee Brown, and a brother, Silas Gentry, of Nashville, Tenn. There are six grandchildren.

Funeral services were held at the Kimber and West Mortuary Monday, May 7, with Rev. Raye L. Ragan in charge. Burial was in Memorial Park. The pallbearers were C.O. Nelson, Swen Wedan, Harry M. Starr and P. J. Davis.

A Fine Trade Unionist James C. Tate

"Wild ducks were so plentiful, when I was a boy, that I often went hunting with a club and seldom returned home without two or three. We had a neighbor who used a gun and he went to town, his wagon loaded with ducks," remarked James Calvin Tate, on the eve of his eighty-first birthday.

"I was born on Oct. 28, 1862, down in southwestern Missouri, near the town of Licking. The town got its name from a famous 'salt lick,' you know, a natural salt spring, where the wild animals came to drink the water and lick up the salt crust along the edges of the swampy pool. The 'lick' was about an acre in extent and the animals had licked it down ten or twelve feet. That's how much they liked salt.

"Hunters built platforms in trees around the 'lick' and sat there nights to shoot deer and other animals. The streams were full of fish and wild ducks and geese were to be found in every pool of water--they were so plentiful that, as I said before, a boy who wasn't old enough to trust with a gun--and that wasn't very old down in Missouri in those days--could and did kill 'em with a club or a rock thrown into a flock.

"That was soon after the close of the Civil war and I remember the soldiers going home. They often stopped at my house for a meal, and to pass the night. We had an old colored man and his wife on our place and when my parents weren't around, the colored folk, if they got a chance, locked us in a closet under the stairs to keep us, my brother and I, 'from under foot.'

Acorns for Dinner

"My grandfather lived with us and in the evenings he would sometimes tell us about the time he fought with 'Old Hickory" at New Orleans and how he and other soldiers rolled cotton bales in front of them when they advanced and took the city from the Britishers."

Mr. Tate thought a moment and remarked: "Here's a story about General Andy Jackson that never has been printed to my knowledge. My grandfather and two other soldiers were foraging--they had no food at camp--and were tramping through the country looking for something to eat. They met the General, he was on horseback, and he stopped them for questioning. They told him, what he already knew, about the lack of supplies.

"' Well, boys," said the General, 'I had luck. Just now I found a burr oak and had dinner. Thought I might as well stock up a bit, so I'll help you out.' He did, gave each of the soldiers one of the three burr oak acorns that he had put in his pocket." Mr. Tate smiled, "Ever try an acorn for dinner? Neither did I."

Helped Build World's Fair

"When did you join the Carpenters Union?" Mr. Tate, we asked.

"In 1886, at Nashville, Tenn. Was a charter member, too. Worked in and around Nashville for a time and then went to Chicago to help build the First World's Fair. After I had that pretty well under way," Mr. Tate grinned, "a contractor I knew had a church to build in Galesburg. Came here on Oct. 22, 1892, and have liver here ever since. I like Galesburg."

"How about carpenter work? Has it changed much in the last fifty years?" we asked.

"Changed. Well I should say it has. Why, in those days we made everything on and in the building by hand. Look at the molding about your room, we had tools for every operation--guess I had a dozen or more rabbiting cutters alone. We had to do our own tennoning and mortising, even wood carving on occasions. Yes, times have changed."

"Ever belong to the Knights of Labor?"

"Yep. In 1877. Pretty nearly every union man did at one time or another in the early days. Of course, the Carpenters Union came first but we all gave the Knights a lift when we could. No, I never held office in their organization. Just tagged along with the rest."

"You have held office in the Carpenters, haven't you?"

Held Many Union Offices

"Held office? Better say offices, because I've held every office in the Galesburg local.

"Was president of the Galesburg Trades and Labor Assembly. Say, if there is any labor office in Galesburg that I did not fill at one time or another I just can't think what it might be."

"Heard from Jim recently?" Jim, Mr. Tate's son, is in the army.

"Yes, only a day or so ago. We expect to see him before Christmas. He's been in the army a year, now.

"And Myrtle?" a daughter.

"She's in Chicago and writes that she's busy in an essential war industry as a personnel director. She completed her college training some time ago and writes her mother that she likes the work. Expect her for Thanksgiving."

Feeling "Fine" at 81

Getting up from his chair, he pays The Labor News a visit now and then, he grunted a bit. "Rheumatism," he said. 'Got a twitch of it in my back today."

"Bother you much?"

"Not so much. When you are 81 you can't feel too good all the time.

"Rheumatism comes and goes, like everything else. When you are 81 and you feel fine part of the time, well, that's just dandy.

"Good bye. Will see you again. Good health and good luck."

A fine, genial and inspiring old gentleman--and a model trades unionist--just closed our office door and walked with remarkable vigor and cheeriness up Cherry toward Main Street. Our honored friend, James Calvin Tate.

Notes for WILLIAM THOMAS TALLY:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

An Excerpt from The History of Cooper County by W F Johnson, 1919

William T. Tally, a veteran of the Civil War and a substantial retired farmer of Cooper County was born on a farm in Saline Township, Oct. 14 1839 son of Henderson and Mary Ann (Taylor) Tally, the former a native of Tennessee, born Jan 6, 1811 and the latter of Kentucky born Feb. 10, 1816. They were married in this county Dec 15, 1836 and spent the remainder of their lives here. Henderson Tally died in 1887. He and his wife were the parents of six children: Mrs. Louisa Hopkins, deceased; William T.; Judge James P. Tally, Pilot Grove; Mrs. Mary Woods, deceased; Marion C., deceased and Mrs. Catherine Newlin a widow, Boonville.

William T. Tally received his schooling in the primitive schools of the time and was living at home when the Civil War broke out. In 1862 he enlisted in the Union cause for two years and was attached to Company F, Fifth Regiment, Missouri State Militia. At the end of his two years he re-enlisted and went to the front as a member of Company I, Twelfth Missouri Cavalry, serving with Sherman's army. Nov. 24 1864, in the battle of Franklin, his horse was shot from under him and he was taken prisoner and sent to the Confederate prison at Andersonville GA., where he remained until the close of the war and was mustered out under a general order, April 29, 1865.

During a visit home on furlough in the summer of 1863, Mr. Tally had married and upon his return home, after his long military service, he resumed farming in Saline Township, where he owned a farm of 120 acres. He added to his holding, and from time to time was the owner of several farms in this county. In 1903, Mr. Tally disposed of his farm holdings and moved to Boonville, where he since has made his home at 1026 Fifth Street. Mr Tally is an ardent Republican, but has not been a seeker after office. He is a member of the local post of the Grand Army of the Republic.

August 14 1863, William T Tally was united in marriage to Louisa A. Tate, who was born in Warren County Tenn., Dec 22, 1845, daughter of Jahiel Douglas Tate and Sarah (Price) Tate, the former of whom was born in that county and the latter in Jackson County, ALA., who came with their family to Missouri in 1852 and settled on a farm in Texas County where they spent the remainder of their lives. Douglas Tate and wife were the parents of 11 children of whom Mrs. Tally was the fourth in order of birth. Mr. & Mrs. Tally have six children: William A., Boonville, Alice, wife of A. L. Durnil, Saline township; Joseph D., Boonville; Charles E., of Excelsior Springs; Oscar F., a railway mail clerk of Kansas City and Hattie E., widow of David A Snyder, resides with her parents in Boonville. Mrs. Snyder has three children, two daughters and a son, the latter of whom, Oscar E. Snyder, enlisted in the aviation corps of the National Army January 25 1918, and was assigned to Camp Sevier, NC C., where after a period of training, he was made a first class sergeant and in March 1918 sailed for overseas service and is still (spring of 1919) in France.

He said Philander Tate visited my grandmother Louisa Adaline Tate Tally in Cooper county, MO one time. He married Louise E., born June 1857 in MO. It is thought this is the Phil. Tate who had a son, born about 1874 called M. B. Tate said to be about 82 in 1953 in Fort Payne, AL, knew they were related to the Aaron Tate family but distantly.*" Roubidaux Township, Texas County, MO. Reference: Family record by Clyde E.

Daughter, Julia, signed in as Mrs. A. J. Watson in John B. Tate's funeral register under the "relatives attending" section. It is thought by this Tate that Mary E. and Philander are probably two of the deceased that preceded their father in death."

and the Woods were neighbors in Pulaski County.

He died as they were wheeling him to his room at the nursing home. Had I known this at the time, I think I would have got that old Colt for him. He knew he was going to die and he just wanted to do it at home."

Notes for FREDERICK M. TATE:

"This part of the family moved to California shortly after Philander's death. Fred still lived in California in 1977. These three Tates were probably born in Kelso, OK (Indian Territory). It wasn't exactly a town, I don't think, but I could be wrong. More of a rail head I think. Philander owned or lived on our family farm there where I was raised. Kelso had some stock or cattle pens, grain elevator, general store and a school house, horse barn. The school served as the Kelso Baptist Church until late the late 1980's when local vandals destroyed it, shot it all up with automatic weapons then set fire to it. Sad testament to our local youth! That farm has been in our family for about 80 of the last 100 years one way or another. My mother Elizabeth, my son Jeff and his family still live there. Kelso is about halfway between Vinita and Bluejacket, Craig County, OK," Sonny Tate wrote in an email dated 09/27/2000.

117. JULIA A.5 TATE (JAHIEL DOUGLAS4, ALEXANDER3, ROBERT (JR.)2, ROBERT (SR.)1) was born May 13, 1857 in Sherrill, Texas County, MO, and died January 31, 1926 in Chicago, IL. She married JOHN M. BOYLES 1876, son of (?) BOYLES and MARY MILLER. He was born March 16, 1842 in Boonville (Overton), Missouri, and died September 29, 1921 in Higginsville, MO (buried in Confederate Cemetery, Kirksville, MO).

Notes for JULIA A. TATE:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The state of Missouri was torn by differing politics during the Civil War. Julia A. Tate married John M. Boyles who fought for the Confederacy. Her older sister, Louisa A. Tate married William T. Tally who fought for the Union and was eventually imprisoned by the Confederacy at Andersonville, GA.

On Julia Death Certificate from the Department of Health - Division of Vital Statistics, State of Illinois, there appear to be some errors. It states that her father was John Tate and that she was born in Boonville, MO. This seems to be incorrect. Other documentation indicates that her father was Jahiel Douglas Tate and that she was born in Sherrill, Texas County, MO. The informant on the Death Certificate was her son, Stanley Boyles.

Notes for JOHN M. BOYLES:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

His military service was in the " War between the States" (Civil War) from 1861 to June 14, 1865. He was in Company "F", Elliott's Regiment, Jackman's Brigade, Shelby's Division.

He was buried in a cemetery designated for Confederate Soldiers in Kirksville, MO on September 30, 1921. (This information comes from a Certified Copy of the Original Certificate of Death, Missouri State Board of Health).

He fought in the following battles: Paris, Boonville, Vera Cruce, Baterville, Brurswiek. He applied for admission to the Confederate Home of Missouri at Higginsville, MO sometime around 1907. His application states he had a "lame arm" and he suffered from Catarrh. (This information comes from his Application for Admission to the Confederate Home of Missouri, at Higginsville, MO, and other Confederate Home Records. Not sure of the spellings of the battles).

An Excerpt from W. F. Johnson's "History of Cooper County", 1919

The George B Harper Camp No. 714 United Veterans of the Confederacy was organized in the City of Boonville Aug. 17 1895 with the following roster of attending veterans:

Robert McCulloch, B F Bedwell, J L Campbell, A M George, F M Davis, J C Berry, Jan Halley, H. Allen, James Posell, E I Smith, J H B Street, T B Simmons, Amos O'Neal, R A KIrkbride, W E Toler, O F Arnold, W W Trent, J E Fairchild, J W Williams, Isaac Henry, J M Givens, A W McFarland, Eph Simmons, A L Zollinger, John M Boyles, J H Zollinger, R E Howlett, W H Eades, J A Howard, A G Dinwiddie, John Heplin, Dr. H H Miller.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++In October, 1999 in a telephone conversation I had with Joe Boyles (Joseph Owen Boyles, son of Owen Boyles), he told me that his father used to tell the story of his father's (John M.'s) military induction. The story recited to him says that John M. Boyles, aged 19 years, was plowing corn in a field on his farm when he was approached by several Confederate soldiers who were walking through the field. They told in no uncertain terms that he was to go with them. He felt that they were forcing him and went along rather than face their threats. When he was able to return home four years later, he returned by riding a riverboat that dropped him off. He talked of cooking flapjacks on the smokestack of the riverboat.

Notes for PEARL DOCHOW:

History of Herman Dochow Family by Miss Lillian Shimmick

Prolonged political oppression breeds discontentment and too often results in a hatred for the fatherland, its language and its laws. So it was with the family of Frederick Willie Dochow (Do-who) living in France near the German border. During the period of the Persecution of the Huguenots the family fled to Gemplen, Germany with their small son Frederick II born December 2, 1818. Gemplen became their abode where Frederick II learned and later followed the trade of a miller. Numbered among his friends was a young German girl, Miss Fredericka Enge whom he later married in Boitzenburg, Germany. Though this couple were born 9 children; Charlie, Herman (youngest) Albert, Matilda, Adolph, Edna, Martha, William and Gustav.

Warfare among German border states seemed never ending. To avoid further involvement, the Frederick Dochow family severed its ties with the homeland and emigrated to the United State of America. Their ocean travel from Germany to New York City numbered 14 days. The cross-country train travel from the East Coast to the state of Wisconsin, too, was slow and wearisome. On reaching their destination the Dochows were met by relatives who helped them to establish their home. As the children grew into adulthood, the family circle was broken; some married and settled in the Dakotas and in Minnesota. A couple of the brothers went west to Colorado and then on to Oregon. Frederick found the winters in Wisconsin and Minnesota too cold for comfort in his rheumatic condition. In search of a more favorable clime, Frederick persuaded his son Herman to accompany him to Atchison, KS to pick corn for Sam Arthur. While working there, it was Herman's good fortune to meet Miss Addie Minerva Arthur, the young lady whom he later married.

Herman and his wife set up housekeeping on a farm near Farmington, KS. While residing there, three daughters were born; Minnie, Grace and Pearl. From Farmington, the family moved to Osborne, KS and their son Loren was born.

The urge to move on westward was ever present among the young married folk who were eager to improve their lot. The Herman Dochow family was among those who joined the wagon train and traveled as Far West as Decatur County, KS. It was in 1887 that the family settled on a farm southeast of Jennings. A one-room dugout speedily became their home. A larger three-room sod house was build two years later to accommodate the large family. Here, a daughter, Bessie and later a son, Joe were born. Herman made no effort to teach his children to speak German, nor would he converse with others in his native language. The abuses and inequities experienced in the fatherland had left him embittered. He chose to converse, as best he could, in broken English.

The Dochows were responsible citizens; all were thrifty, hard-working, God-loving people. Herman was reared in the Lutheran Faith, his wife, in Methodism. The family attended the Methodist Church at Jennings often walking to day and evening services and Sunday school.

Herman was troubled with rheumatism. Home remedies were used to ease the pain. His wife often placed hot packs made of ears of unhusked corn taken steaming hot from the wash boiler around him. Time were hard and money was scarce. Coal was so expensive that cow and buffalo chips were gathered and used for fuel.

From the sod house the family established itself in a new two-story frame house which was built just west of their soddy. The house still stands and is presently owned by the daughter, Mrs. Pearl Dochow Boyles and her husband, Owen. The bricks for the chimney wee hauled from Norcatur and the lumber from Jennings. A second trip had to be made to Norcatur after the youngest child, Joe was found breaking the new bricks with his hammer. John and Pete Pauls and Harry Munson assisted Herman in building his house. Nick Hahn bore a well near the house in 1891. This well is in use today. Herman and his family rejoiced on September 27, 1892 when he obtained a patent from the United States government bearing the signature of President Benjamin Harrison for land on which he had built his house. NE1/4 of Section 6, Township 5, S Range 26 @ of the 6 PM. Later in June, 1900 a patent for school land was issued to Herman Dochow by the United States government for an adjacent quarter section of land SE1/4 - 6 - 5 -26 at that time W. E. Stanley was governor of Kansas.

The Dochows were sociable, out-going folk, never too busy to stop their work to help others or to engage in conversations. It was a common occurrence for the passer-by to stop at the Dochow house at the side of the road, where an invitation to enter and to remain for lunch was cheerfully extended; although the fare was meager-many times, no more than homemade bread and gravy. Many of the neighbors as they traveled toward the Dochow home could be recognized by the way they traveled. Mrs. Bill Lieber drove hard and fast; Mrs. Frank Price pulled back on the reins to maintain control; while D. S. Logan drove his team -alfalfa fed-at a leisurely pace. In addition to their allegiance to church and school, the Dochows became affiliated with local fraternal associations; Herman became a charter member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Jennings Lodge #449, organized on October 11, 1900. Later Addie and Pearl became members of the International Association of Rebekah Assemblies, Jennings Lila Rebekah Lodge # 430.

Daughters Minnie, Grace and Pearl received their formal education in several school districts. The school attended first was located just east of the present Boyles mailbox. Miss Letha Pine was the teacher. The second school attended was in a frame building known as the Elkhorn School, located east of the township (Allison) Road about a quarter of a mile west of the present Walter Warren residence. As the other children of the family became of school age, they attended the two-room frame schoolhouse located on a hill in the east pat of Jennings. Later in 1894, the schoolhouse was moved a short distance west where two more class rooms were added. Some of the teachers were G. W. Fields, Anna Bates, Mr. Brown, Louisa and J. P. Langley, Anna R. Van Wickle, 1885, Anna E. Bates, 1888; Grace E. Ford, Merita Speakman, Edwin Ashcraft, A. C. Banta and Louise Anderson.

Dr. Dwight Funk, the local family doctor was called to attend Herman in his last illness. Herman passed away at his home on April 6, 1903 at the age of 47. His death was attributed to the leakage of the heart. The bereaved family remained on the farm where they labored together to make their living caring for cattle and chickens and raising wheat and corn.

When the children were old enough to work out, they found employment in the neighborhood; Pearl as a teenager worked for the families of Mark Feely, John Nellans, Ran Bartley, Bill Willy, Bill Stramp, Mrs. Mary Wolfe, Bob Mizer, Bill Lieber, Kings at Lenora, Elic Bishop and Leonard Hill. Pearl's sister, Minnie also worked out. She was at the Frank Shimmick home to help when this writer was a baby. In June 1909, Pearl went to Kansas City, MO where she worked for the Loose and Wyld Candy Company and the Walkers Laundry. Later, she kept house for Miller Hageman, her grandmother's uncle who ran an apartment housers' laundry. In 1910, Pearl met Owen Boyles, a furniture finisher who worked for Robert Keith Carpet and Furniture Company. They were married at Olathe, KS on March 6, 1912. They bought a home in Kansas City, MO and lived there until 1916 when they moved to Jennings.

During Pearl's absence from home many changes had taken place in the Dochow household. Pearl's oldest sister, Annie, had married D. S. Logan and was living on a farm just southwest of Allison on the Solomon River. The Logans' had three children,

Ross, Glen and Mamie. Pearl's sister, Grace had married Thomas Davitt, a painter. They made their home on a farm southeast of Jennings. The Davitts had two sons, Loren and Raymond. Grace, after a short illness passed away in 1909 at the age of 29. Pearl's brother, Loren (Pete) had married Miss Nellie Smith, a hometown schoolmate. The couple moved to Kansas City where they lived for several yeas before they returned to make their home in Jennings. Their family consisted of six children: Ernest Edward, Bernard, Boyd, Vivian, Nettie Pearl and Addie Katheryn. Pearl's youngest sister, Bessie had married Nick Gibson. They made their home in Kansas City. Charles and Evelyn were children of this family. Pearl's mother and youngest unmarried brother, Joe were farming the homestead. When Joe as arrayed into the United States Army in 1916, Pearl and Owen Boyles returned to Jennings to be with Mrs. Dochow and to keep the Dochow farm in operation. On July 20, 1926, a son, Joe was born to Pearl and Owen. Joe attended elementary and high school at Jennings and in Oberlin. He served his country in World War II. He is married to Katherine Kirk and is now living in Kansas City, MO. They have a 16-year-old daughter, Vicki.

Mrs. Addie Dochow's retirement years were spent on the farm with Pearl and Owen. Her grandson, Raymond Davitt and his wife, Mildred and their three daughters, Frances, Maxine and Ardith lived a short distance from her. Mrs. Dochow was active and enjoyed life in the companionship of relatives and friends. In 1939, she suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, which resulted in several months of invalidism. She passed away at home on October 30, 1940 at the age of 80. She was preceded in death by two daughters, Grace Davitt in 1909 and Bessie Gibson in 1936; Annie Logan passed away later in 1954. Joe Dochow in 1956 and Loren (Pete) in 1961. Herman and Addie Dochow were laid to rest in the Jennings Cemetery.

Pearl and Owen still reside on the farm enjoying the freedom of the out-of-doors. They have rented the farm ground and have things pretty much as they want them out there. They still have chickens and a ga4rden and depend on their car to get them to the places where they need to go. On March 14, 1974, Pearl's 91st birthday, Mrs. Leroy (Florence Nauer) Wyld hosted a birthday party honoring Pearl and Mrs. Ruby Stroup, whose birthdays are on the same day. Mahy friends and relatives called to extend congratulations, Pearl and Owen enjoy each day to the fullest keeping informed by reading and watching TV and listening to radio programs. They vote at elections, and enjoy visiting and entertaining. The Welcome Mat is always at the door.

The writer is indebted to Pearl Boyles and her niece, Evelyn Givson Keith and to Mrs. Albert McKenna for information and assistance.

Notes for DANIEL EMERSON WILKINS:

AKA Jasper Daniel Wilkins

AKA J. Dan Wilkins

AKA John Dan Wilkins

He deserted his wife and children in 1922 in Chicago. Subsequently, the children became wards of the State of Illinois. The Illinois Children's Home and Aid Society has been very helpful in detailing the events occurring to this family and the children. Most were put into foster homes and most remained in limited contact into their adulthood. Many, despite the hardships of the Great Depression, multiple foster homes or orphanages, rose above their humble beginnings and became productive, contributing members of society. There are several stories of several of these children overcoming these poor odds and becoming successful business people and/or parents.

Daniel Emerson Wilkins was reported to be living in or near Dekalb County, AL with another family in 1952 with a son, Douglas, who "was not an orphan". No further information is known to date.

The following letters written in 1911 are of interest to us now, they are from H. E. Killian and written to Martin Van Buren Tate who then lived at Thatcher, AZ:

January 18, 1911

Dear Cousin,

I want to tell you how good it was to get a letter from you. Mart, I have been practicing medicine for 30 years. I am doing well. Got plenty to live on if I can take care of it. I own a 281 acre farm. Got it well fixed up, a good house and barn, plenty of stock on the farm, horses, cattle and hogs. I have 125 acres in cultivation. Make plenty to live on. I have four living children. 3 boys and one living girl, Georgie (C) Parr he wrote to us last night. He is selling goods at Collbran, doing very well. Artimus Daniel is a fine Physician.

She was the best scoller of her age I ever saw. She could read Latin. It was the work thing I ever had to give her up. I thought I never could stand it. I want you to write me and tell me all the latest news from Kaufman County and all the people that I knew when I lived there and all about cousin Nimi and your children. V---Hamilton went back to Texas and died. I guess you head that Henry G. Hamilton died September the 5th day. He had consumption, he had 8 children. Uncle Maban Tate died 1874 or 1877. Grandfather Tate has been dead about 34 years, grandmother Tate has been dead about 27 years. I guess you heard about Nan's death. She died of consumption. She has been dead since August 6, 1876. I heard of Aunt Vinn's death but have never heard about your {a's death. Give my love to all your family.

H. E. Killian (Henry()

February 1, 1911

Dear Cousin,

Yours of recent date, I was glad to hear from you. I have been busy for the last few days. Have had a lot of sickness in the naborhood. Mart how come you to go out so far West? I am 72 years in September, I am stout and in very good health. I am stout for a man that has done the work that I have for the last 41 years. Mart, I had 4 children by Nan and 3 by last wife. 2 boys and 2 girls by Nan and 2 boys (Martain) and Artemus Daniel. 2 boys by Mat and one girl Maud died at 12 years old and the first one at 11 months old. My babie will be 28 years old the 3rd of next December. He is in school at Birmingham. I am making a doctor of him. Cousin, all of the old Tates are dead. Most of them lived to be very old before they died. Uncle Aaron died 1892. I think Aunt Susannah Cunningham was the last of the family to die. Mart, I can't remember anything about your Pa's people. They did not live in Alabama. They lived in Warren County, TN. If you will write to Uncle James or Dave Cunningham they might give you some information about your family on your pa's side. This leaves us all well, there is but me and (Mat) since Claud went to Coledge. He will be home the last of April for 5 months more. I will close, write soon.

Notes for SUSAN EDNA TATE:

Warren County Cemetery Books by Majors, Book 2, Page 120

Susan Edna Tate Boyd, wife of John Henry Harrison Boyd

December 3, 1877 - December 29, 1958

Daughter of D. M. "Doc" and Adelaide (Dearing) Tate.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In an email received February 21, 2001, Cindy (Deadmon) King writes:

Edna was the second wife of John Henry Harrison Boyd. He is considered the founder of the nursery (as in plants) industry in Warren County. Most of the family members that we know are from his "first" family with his first wife. I did notice in the cemetery books that John & Edna had several children as well.

The nursery industry in Warren County is prominent. And that is an understatement. At one time in the '90s, there were over 300 commercial nurseries. That does not count all the local farmers who raise a little nursery stock out back.

Edna and John are buried at Hebron Cemetery, a mile west of Irving College in southeastern Warren County along with three of their daughters and two granddaughters. This is in the general "Tate" area--close to Viola, close to Grundy County.

If there were a "royal" family in Warren County, the Boyds would be it. You would never know by their manner or treatment of others that they are a wealthy family. They are among the kindest and most generous individuals that I've met. Even the younger generations [my age!] that might be prone to show their money are not that way. When Mother worked at the Welfare Department in 1967-68, she worked with Larry Boyd. Larry is the family historian. I'll follow up on that to see what else we can discover about Edna.

 

John Henry Harrison Boyd married 1) Ersa J. Johnson, May 15, 1887 in Sequatchie County, Tennessee; 2) Sarah Edna Tate, May 21, 1893 in Sequatchie County, Tennessee.

The marriage information is from Family Tree Maker's Family Archives, CD #235, Marriage Index: Tennessee, 1851-1900.

John and Ersa had two sons: Fernando Campbell Boyd, Sr. (1888-1960) and James Reed Boyd (1890-1965).

Ersa (Ersy) was born in 1868 and died in 1892. I would guess that Edna raised the two boys. Fernando's oldest son, Bill, married my grandfather's first cousin, Alma. Bill died in 1948 of cancer. Never do we see Larry (the historian) or Jim & Alene (Larry's parents) that they do not mention their appreciation for Alma's devotion to Bill.

John H. H. Boyd moved his family to the Irving College area 1904. Fernando, Sr. & wife had 13 children. Jim and wife had 7.

Notes for ALFRED NEWBERRY SHANKLE:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

Alfred Shankle, private, Company B, 2nd Battalion (formerly Company C, 5th Battalion) Tennessee, confederate State Army, enlisted October 10, 1861 in the Civil War. He drew a pension (#14954 I) in Gustine, Comanche County, TX in 1909.

From Alfred Newberry Shankle's pension application filed July 24, 1909 and approved August 31, 1909 in Gustine, Comanche County, TX, Alfred stated: "I enlisted and served in the military service of the Confederate States during the war between the States of the United States, and that I did not desert the Confederate service, but during said war I was loyal and true to my duty, and never at any time voluntarily abandoned my post of duty in the said service; that I was honorably discharged at Flat Gap, TN in 1864 on account of ill health and that I am 62 years old, was born in Dekalb County, AL and have resided in Texas since 1871 in the county of Comanche."

Alfred's brother-in-law, Aaron A. Tate aged 61 years of Hamilton County, TX, testified on the application for Alfred's Confederate Pension stating: "I have known him all of my life. I was at his home when he came home on a furlough with a spell of fever, and knew that he was from the army of the Confederacy located in Georgia, as well as I remember at this time, and heard him speak of the service in the said army. I lived in the same community about ten or twelve miles apart and associated together frequently. I did not know of any other soldier in the service by that name. I am certain that the said applicant is the person I have testified about in the foregoing answers. I have answered in the foregoing that I lived near the applicant and personally know him and saw him while at home, and my knowledge of the same is not based on conjecture. I know he stayed in the service until the surrender. I do not know what company, I don't recollect. He went in about the 3rd year of the war and stayed a long time, about the last two years of the war. He is not able to do a days work. He is too old and feeble. He has lived in Texas since the year 1870 and has continuously lived here.

Myra Ann (Shankle) Tate, Alfred's sister and the wife of Aaron A. Tate, testified on the application stating: "I have known the applicant about 50 years. I knew him in Dekalb County, Al. Knew him about all my life. I know that the applicant enlisted in the service of the Confederacy about three years after the war began and served until it closed, and performed the service of a soldier. I do not know that company he enlisted or served in. He enlisted sometime in 1864 in the Western Army, about two years. He is not able to support himself by labor. I am the sister of the applicant and was at home at the time and place designated above and actually knew that he left home and joined the army and returned to the army and remained there until the close of the war. I am positively certain that the applicant is the identical person testified about. I have answered above. He was my brother and we lived together in the same family. He has lived here since 1870."

When Alfred died in 1916, his widow, Martha Jane drew his pension until her death in 1919.

The 1870 Census, Dekalb County, AL shows Alfred age 25, Jane age 20, George, age 4. Alfred and Martha Jane were in the 1900 Census in Comanche County, TX. Alfred Newbery Shankle and his wife have a tall, double tombstone: "Mother and Father SHANKLE" with inscriptions showing names and dates. Comanche County Gravestone Inscriptions.

Notes for LYDIA ANN SHANKLE:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

(in part)....She was "Mama" to me, probably because Mother called her that, too. She had beautiful white, naturally curly hair for as long as I can remember. In the tintype picture we have, it appeared to be light brown when she was young. She had blue eyes and fair skin, and was pleasingly plump as seen in pictures. I have no way of knowing how tall she was, but she wasn't as tall as my Mother, who was 5'9". I was twelve when she died.

She and my mother lived together and after I was born, she took care of me while Mother worked. She could sew and had an old treadle sewing machine. To open it for sewing, the top opened and lifted the machine out to make a work table. I would lie on top of that and take a nap when she sewed. The soothing noise always made me sleepy.

While we were living on Ewing, Mother remarried. "Mama" lived with us a while, but when Aunt Lou Ella, came to Dallas, she moved in with her on Elmore.

I remember one holiday, either Christmas or New Years, when I was fairly small, Mother had bought some fireworks. I never liked the firecrackers or anything loud, so she had bought me some Roman Candles and sparklers. I kept begging "mama" to shoot off some of the Roman Candles, but because it was very cold, she decided to light one and open the window and shoot it off through it. She lit it, but didn't quite get the window open before it started going off. Balls of fire were going off all in the room, and one or two landed on the bed and burned a hole in the quilt.

So far as I know, no one knew that "Mama" dipped snuff until she moved in with Aunt Lou Ella. Aunt Lou Ella also dipped snuff and would buy some for "Mama", too. But "Mama" would never dip in front of Aunt Lou Ella. When she died, her little snuff can was in her apron pocket.

I remember very little about when "Mama" died. I just remember that we went to the house and "Mama" was i bed. I remember Mother telling me that she was very sick. Mother put me to bed and I remember thinking that "Mama" would be alright in the morning. Mother came in later, and work me and told me that "Mama" had died. I went in and saw her before the funeral home came to get her. The funeral home was just a few doors down Denley Drive from where "Mama" and Aunt Lou Ella lived.

I certainly have very good memories of her, but I think that something that Mother wrote about her was a very good tribute. In some of Mother's papers about what little she knew about the family history, she had written: "Mama" was never known to say a bad word about anyone."

"Mamma took with a sick stomach and Tuesday evening and about 10:00 PM that night got up and seemed to loose use of herself. I got her in a chair and after about an hour she still couldn't move. I called Hope, they came and just as we got her on the bed, she fainted. We called the doctor and the next day he said he didn't think she would ever walk again. For three days she was almost helpless but began to improve and got able to walk with a cane and a little help. We left the light on at night for three weeks. But that night she seemed to feel so much better and insisted on putting the light out. But next evening about 5 o'clock, she took real sick at her stomach again and about 9 had the hardest chill or rigor. Robert stayed till 2 o'clock and she seemed to be resting. He went home but Grace stayed all night, but early next morning we knew she was so much worse. We called Robert and Hope. They came, also phoned "Cap" (Loyd) and Leora. When the doctor came out about 10 o'clock, he said her time was short. The boys had gone on to work. We called them. "Cap" and Leora and Iona (Grace) got here about 2:30 Wednesday evening the 18th of December. Mamma died Thursday morning at 10 minutes till 1 o'clock; was carried to Smith & Lamar funeral home and on to the Albin Cemetery in Comanche County and buried beside Papa on Saturday, December 20, 1941. Papa died June 6, 1919.

Notes for RAYMOND COOKE:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

Raymond and Lydia bought a farm ("the old Cooke homestead") in Gustine in 1904 and farmed it until Raymond died in 1919. There was no road into the property, you had to go through the Caraway Ranch to get to it. Lydia and their son, Robert, and his wife, Vida and their children, Hollis and Marie lived there for several years before Robert and family moved to Dallas. Lydia continued living there until about 1928 when she sold it their son Loyd "Cap" and his wife Leora (Randerson) Cooke. Cap and Leora remodeled the old farm house and lived there until about 1950. The farm was located five miles east of Gustine.

Source: Hollis Cooke, November 1989)

"Raymond and Lydia's children went to school at Farmers Chapel and later at Gustine school. I used to play at the farm, down in the lower pasture by the creek. It was an old Indian Burial Ground and I made my playhouse of of Indian arrow heads."

Source: Marie (Cooke) Wright, granddaughter

This is to Certify that Raymond received Holy Baptism in St. Bartholomew's Church, Hempstead on Sunday the Ninth day of August in the year of our Lord 1874.

Raymond died in the 1919 flu epidemic. His death certificate shows cause of death as "La Grippe Pneumonia." He is buried in the Albin Cemetery, Comanche, Texas. His tombstone looks like a wooden log, possibly the symbol of Woodmen of the World

Lydia stayed on the farm for many years after his death, but in time, she moved to Dallas to be near her children. Raymond and Lydia's son, Loyd Cooke and his wife, Leora (Randerson) Cooke bought the old homestead and they sold the old place in either 1968 or 1969. In 1992, Hollis and Billie went to see it and found out that a new owner had bought it and torn it down.

Notes for HOMER MARTIN TATE:

Excerpt from the Tate Families of Southern States, Volume II, Laura Metzel and Ethel Speer Updike, 1984

He was a Sherriff of Graham County, AZ 1924 - 1929, a farmer. Many may remember Homer as the practical joker of the town. He moved to Central in the late summer of 1898 with his father, Martin Van Buren Tate from Spanish Fork, UT at the age of thirteen.

It seems Homer attended school in Central only a very short time. He worked at odd jobs on the farms until he was seventeen years old, when he began working in the mines. He found work at such places as Pierce, Bisbee, Glove, AZ and in Cananea, Mexico.

Emma Pearl Coombs was born in Central, AZ, the eighth child of George and Pauline Gulbransen Coombs, Jr. All Emma's formal education was received in the Central schools.

Homer was working at Globe, AZ in 1906-07. At this time, Emma left Central and went to work for the Tate's Boarding House in Globe. During this time a courtship blossomed into marriage, which took place in October of 1907. Homer and Emma began their married life at the new town site of Copper Hill, which consisted of a few 10 x 12 foot tents, boarded up on three sides. Here they lived for about three years while both Homer and Emma continued working, until very early in 1911. Emma returned to Central early in 1911 as the first born of the family was expected.

The Tates' first child, Martin Coombs Tate was born March 5, 1911. Since Central was a farming community, jobs were very scarce and about the only work available was helping on individual farms on a day or two, basis. So, in the early part of 1915, Homer felt he should procure work that would provide a better means of support for the family which now had an additional member, daughter Pearl. Homer went alone to Bisbee where he secured employment in the mines. Emma and their two chldren followed later after housing was secured.

In 1916, the Tates were back in Central, a mining town was not the best place to rear a family. Homer felt he should try farming as a means of providing for his family, now consisting of three children, as a second son, Goerge Vining, was born in July of 1916.

The Tates secured a house and small acreage immediately west of the railroad tracks on the old highway, known as the Thomas place. Homer farmed in Central and Pima until 1921. At this time, Homer was appointed by the Governor, G. W. P. Hunt, to the position of Detail Officer at the Boys Reformatory at Fort Grant. Emma served as Matron of the girls dormitory, located on the same site with separate facilities.

After spending a year at Ft. Grant, the Tates moved back to Central and purchased what was called the Thurman Place in the Northwest part of town. There were only about eight acres under cultivation. Alfalfa, vegetables and melons were the main crops raised. Homer was Constable of Central until December 7, 1924. During the elections of the fall of 1924, Homer was elected Sheriff of Graham County.

During the summer of 1922-1923, Homer, accompanied by a dozen Boy Scouts, climbed Mt. Graham for a week of encampment. Homer spent a good portion of the time testing the bravery of the boys, mainly by concocting ways to scare them. On one occasion after visiting the old sawmill and on their return hike to camp on Soldier Creek, Homer slipped ahead and concealed himself in a rather dense thicket. Previously he had told the boys that one of the men at the mill had wounded a bear, and that a wounded bear could be pretty mean. From

a thicket, Homer made sounds of a wounded bear just as the boys came by in a single file. Some track stars were born, all except for Morgan Taylor. Fear set in, along with exhaustion, and after a short sprint, Morgan yelled, "For Hell's sake Homer, wait!!", thinking that Homer was farther up the trail. About this time the "wounded" bear came out of the thicket.

The Tates moved to Safford, AZ in December, 1925 where Homer assumed the duties of Sheriff.

Notes for JAMES STRIEGEL TATE:

James Striegel Tate's work was building buildings for contractors all over the country. He was particularly proud of the Republic National Bank Building in Dallas, TX and The City Hall in Boston, MA. After he retired he got involved in genealogy because of curiosity about his great grandfather.

He collected, analyzed and produced, approximately 2000 pages of his work. Upon his death the documents were donated to the Tennessee State Library in the hope they would benefit future genealogists. They are known as the James Striegel Tate Papers, 1742 - 1980. He was a contributor to the Ethel Updike book, Tate Families of the Southern States, Volume II, (this, while containing some errors, is considered by many as the definitive work for this line of Tates) as evidenced by the numerous letters between he and Mrs. Updike. His work is precise, detailed, organized and thorough. What a gift his legacy is to those of us who share his interest and passion for genealogy! I wish I could have known him.

James Striegel Tate Papers, Tennessee State Library and Archives 1742 - 1980

JST writes:

On Dec. 13, 1774 surveyors for Finncastle County Virginia surveyed a tract of 174 acres on Moccasin Creek in what is now Russell County, Virginia This tract was granted to Robert Tate, my great great-great grandfather. I know nothing of his ancestry or that of his wife Mary, and this grant remains my earliest knowledge of the family to date (1979).

On Dec. 12, 1774 John Tate received a grant of 145 acres on Moccasin Creek about three miles from the land grant of Robert Tate.

On May 1, 1782 Washington County Virginia issued land grants of 250 acres to Robert Tate and 100 acres to John Tate, both on Moccasin Creek. On February 20, 1793 William Tate bought 145 acres on Moccasin Creek adjoining the 424 acres granted to Robert Tate.

Some in the family, believe their Robert, John, and William Tate were brothers. No proof has been found, but the inter-family relationships are supportive. I strongly urged all researchers to examine this grouping if encountered.

Robert and John were active in County militia and government affairs from 1781 to their deaths. William can find himself to farming. William died testate on Sept. 15, 1803. The two of Roberts and one of John sons were witnesses to his will. He named the widow, four sons and a daughter. Robert junior. It was named executor.

Moccasin Creek was located in Boutetort County prior to 1773; in Finncastle County from January 1773 to January 1777; in Washington County from 1777 to May 1786; in Russell County May from 1786 to present.

We are largely ignorant of the activities of the five brothers from their arrival in Tennessee until about 1850. The primary causes are:

1) the division of Warren County in 1844 to create Grundy County. The splitting of records.

2) fires in the late 1840s in the courthouses of both counties with resultant loss of numerous public records that are critical to a genealogical researcher.

3) the low level of literacy with consequent lack of personal records.

4) the critical need to firmly establish a government and economy in an area that had a few short years before, been " Indian lands." They were concerned with "making a living" rather than telling about it.

Robert Tate died testate July 24, 1806. John's son Isaac was a witness to the will as were two of Robert’s owns sons. He named Mary, his widow and the children in the following order:

Joseph Tate, Alexander Tate, Aaron Tate, Polly (Mary) Tate, John Tate, James Tate and Robert Tate (Jr.). the will was dated July 29, 1790. It was admitted to probate on February 3, 1807.

Except for Joseph, born Sept. 11, 1778, we don't know the birth dates of any of Robert’s children, but ages shown on Tennessee and Alabama census returns for 1820 to 1850 refute the possible believe that the order of listing was the order of birth. It was not.

I have wondered why there was so much time (over six months) between Robert's death and the processing of the Will for probate. My own belief is that a number of the heirs were in Tennessee looking for place to which they would migrate. I cite:

1) Henry Hill, the first settler at Hills Creek on Collins River in Warren County Tennessee " hunted the area in 1801 to 1802 accompanied by men who later settled the area, among them Tates."

2) John Tate of Russell Connie, Virginia was not on the tax rolls of Russell Connie after 1795, but Joseph, James and Robert Jr. were.

3) James and Ruth sold their Virginia lands between 1801 and 1805. (To go to Tennessee? -- who knows?).

4) John and dicey sold their Virginia lands between July 1807 and October 1809. (Heady been in Tennessee prior to Roberts death?)

5) White County, Tennessee was formed from "Indian lands" in 1806. It includes the area later named Warren County.

6) On Aug. 6, 1806 (13 days after Robert staff) a petition signed by 313 men asked that a county be established from White County. Warren County was formed from White County and 1807. John, James, Robert and Joseph (had Joseph also gone to Tennessee looking for lands, a search that became unnecessary after his father died?)

7) The White County court record for 1806 shows Robert Tate to be a resident of the county.

8) Two of Roberts sons, John and Robert Jr., were witnesses to his well and had to return to Virginia to prove the will for probate. The other heirs also appear to have returned to Virginia to settle the estate.

At some date, after February 3, 1807, Robert's widow, Mary and all their children, except Joseph, moved to Warren County, Tennessee. They were all listed on the tax rolls of Warren County TN for the year 1812.

On October 14, 1816, all of the children sold their inherited interest in 177 acres of land to their brother Joseph, who stayed on the family home place in Virginia. Their mother relinquished her dower rights on the same date. This action is the last record we have a Polly Tate and her husband, Meredith Price and of Mary Tate, their mother. The remaining children, Alexander, Aaron, John, James and Robert (H.) Jr., all continue to appear in the public records of Warren County, Tennessee and of Grundy County, Tennessee which was founded from Warren County in 1844.

We do know that:

1) The earliest settlement in Warren County was at the junction of Hills Creek and Collins River near present-day Irvine college. Alexander and John lived there on Dry Creek which is a tributary to Hills Creek. They remained residents of Warren County.

2) Aaron lived on Wanamaker's Branch very near the future Grundy County line. After his last child was born in Warren County, Tennessee, in 1833, Aaron moved his family into the newly opened "Indian lands" that are now in DeKalb County, Alabama with which he is hereafter associated.

3) James and Robert H. lived on Taylor's Creek near to Mt. Olive and Philadelphia Church where James is buried. The formation of Grundy County in 1844 left them residents thereof and they remained as afterward.

John died intestate in 1845 and Warren County. Very little is known of him or his progeny. His widow, Dicey (Leodicia Hogg Tate) survived him. She was made administrator in October, 1845. The date of her death is unknown and the burial place of both are also unknown.

Alexander died in testate about 1847 in Warren County. He had children, Douglas, Elgan, and Sophronia. All three migrated to Missouri. U.S. census records for Texas County, Missouri show the families of Douglas and Algan to 1888 which time I have lost trace. I never found any record of marriage or progeny for Sophronia.

James died testate in Grundy County on April 19, 1849. His first wife was Ruth by whom he had 13 children. They were divorced about 1827 -- 28 and on February 23, 1829, he married Elizabeth Smith, a much younger woman. They had five children, the oldest of which was apparently born out of wedlock. I, in common with most of the Tates of Grundy County, am a descendant of James and Ruth Tate. He left more records of himself than any of the others.

Robert H. died testate in Grundy County in 1867. His burial place is unknown. He also had two wives. Nothing is known of Susannah (the first). She signed the deed to Joseph in 1816 as Robert's wife. The second wife, Cintha, is also unknown to us. She survived Robert in 1867, and jointly inherited his estate with Aaron, a son of Robert and Susannah's. After Aarons death, in 1907, a suit was instituted to make possible the final settlement of Robert' estate. The suit named the children of Robert and Susannah. No clear records have been found in to identify the children of Robert and Cintha. They were not involved in the suit.

Notes for JAMES CALVIN ALEXANDER TATE:

Excerpt from Labor News, Galesburg, IL, November 5, 1943

"I was born October 28, 1862, down in southwestern Missouri near the town of Licking. The town got its name from a famous 'salt lick,' you know, a natural salt spring, where the wild animals came to drink the water and lick up the salt crust along the edge of the swampy pool. The 'lick' was about an acre in extent, and the animals had licked it down about ten or twelve feet. That's how much they liked salt."

"Wild ducks were so plentiful when I was a boy, that I often went hunting with a club and seldom returned home without two or three.... We had a neighbor who used a gun, and when he went to town, his wagon was loaded with ducks."

"Hunters built platforms in trees around the 'lick' and sat there nights to shoot deer and other animals. The streams were full of fish, and wild ducks and geese were to be found in every pool of water they were so plentiful. As I said before, a boy who wasn't old enough to trust with a gun, and that wasn't very old, down in Missouri those days, could and did kill them with a club or a rock thrown into a flock."

"That was soon after the close of the Civil War, and I remember the soldiers going home. They often stopped at my house for a meal or to pass the night."

"My grandfather lived with us, and, in the evenings, he would sometimes tell us about the time he fought with "Old Hickory" at New Orleans and how he and other soldiers rolled cotton bales in front of them when they advanced and took the city from the Britishers."

James C. Tate was a baby when his father died according to him. He came with his mother, Sarah, and stepfather, William Tazewell Gentry from Missouri to (Dickson) Tennessee around 1876. He was in (Dickson) in 1880 [U.S. Census]. He went to Nashville, Tennessee and joined the Carpenter's Union there as a Charter Member in 1886. He went to Illinois in 1892 and remained there until his death.

James C. Tate, Veteran Carpenter, Dies of Heart Attack

James C. Tate, a charter member of Carpenters and Joiners Local Union No. 360, died last Thursday evening at 10:55 following a heart attack. Mr. Tate had been in his usual health throughout the day and his death came as a great shock to his family and friends. Mr. and Mrs. Tate lived alone at 668 West north Street, the other members now living in other cities. Their daughter, Miss Myrtle Tate, who is employed in Chicago, came in Thursday evening to spend a few days with her parents and her father's death followed just a few hours after her arrival.

James Calvin Tate was born October 28, 1862, at Licking, Mo., and when young his family moved to Nashville, Tenn., where he spent his youth. He was a charter member of the Nashville Carpenters Union, which he joined in 1886. He has been a member of the International Union since that date. He went to Chicago in 1892 where he helped build the Chicago World Fair buildings. A contractor whom he knew had a contract to build a church in Galesburg and he came here in October, 1892, and has resided here since that time.

Jim Tate was active in union affairs throughout his life and held many offices of trust in the labor movement. He had served his union in all offices, including president, and was active on various committees. He had also served as president of the Galesburg Trades and Labor Assembly and had been a delegate to many State Federation of Labor conventions. Soon after coming to Galesburg he was greatly instrumental in organizing the Galesburg Labor News and had always taken keen interest in this publication. He was also active in soliciting funds for the purchase of the Labor Temple. In recent years his health would not permit the continuation of his activities but he never lost interest in the welfare of the working man. Labor has lost a truly great trade unionist in the death of Jim Tate.

Soon after coming to Galesburg, Mr. Tate was united in marriage to Miss Bertha Worden. They celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary May 18, 1943. His wife and four children survive. They are Mrs. C. J. Mulvaney, Long Beach, Calif.; Miss Myrtle Tate, Chicago; Morris Tate, Springfield, and James M. Tate, Peoria. He also leaves a sister, Mrs. Lee Brown, and a brother, Silas Gentry, of Nashville, Tenn. There are six grandchildren.

Funeral services were held at the Kimber and West Mortuary Monday, May 7, with Rev. Raye L. Ragan in charge. Burial was in Memorial Park. The pallbearers were C.O. Nelson, Swen Wedan, Harry M. Starr and P. J. Davis.

A Fine Trade Unionist James C. Tate

"Wild ducks were so plentiful, when I was a boy, that I often went hunting with a club and seldom returned home without two or three. We had a neighbor who used a gun and he went to town, his wagon loaded with ducks," remarked James Calvin Tate, on the eve of his eighty-first birthday.

"I was born on Oct. 28, 1862, down in southwestern Missouri, near the town of Licking. The town got its name from a famous 'salt lick,' you know, a natural salt spring, where the wild animals came to drink the water and lick up the salt crust along the edges of the swampy pool. The 'lick' was about an acre in extent and the animals had licked it down ten or twelve feet. That's how much they liked salt.

"Hunters built platforms in trees around the 'lick' and sat there nights to shoot deer and other animals. The streams were full of fish and wild ducks and geese were to be found in every pool of water--they were so plentiful that, as I said before, a boy who wasn't old enough to trust with a gun--and that wasn't very old down in Missouri in those days--could and did kill 'em with a club or a rock thrown into a flock.

"That was soon after the close of the Civil war and I remember the soldiers going home. They often stopped at my house for a meal, and to pass the night. We had an old colored man and his wife on our place and when my parents weren't around, the colored folk, if they got a chance, locked us in a closet under the stairs to keep us, my brother and I, 'from under foot.'

Acorns for Dinner

"My grandfather lived with us and in the evenings he would sometimes tell us about the time he fought with 'Old Hickory" at New Orleans and how he and other soldiers rolled cotton bales in front of them when they advanced and took the city from the Britishers."

Mr. Tate thought a moment and remarked: "Here's a story about General Andy Jackson that never has been printed to my knowledge. My grandfather and two other soldiers were foraging--they had no food at camp--and were tramping through the country looking for something to eat. They met the General, he was on horseback, and he stopped them for questioning. They told him, what he already knew, about the lack of supplies.

"' Well, boys," said the General, 'I had luck. Just now I found a burr oak and had dinner. Thought I might as well stock up a bit, so I'll help you out.' He did, gave each of the soldiers one of the three burr oak acorns that he had put in his pocket." Mr. Tate smiled, "Ever try an acorn for dinner? Neither did I."

Helped Build World's Fair

"When did you join the Carpenters Union?" Mr. Tate, we asked.

"In 1886, at Nashville, Tenn. Was a charter member, too. Worked in and around Nashville for a time and then went to Chicago to help build the First World's Fair. After I had that pretty well under way," Mr. Tate grinned, "a contractor I knew had a church to build in Galesburg. Came here on Oct. 22, 1892, and have liver here ever since. I like Galesburg."

"How about carpenter work? Has it changed much in the last fifty years?" we asked.

"Changed. Well I should say it has. Why, in those days we made everything on and in the building by hand. Look at the molding about your room, we had tools for every operation--guess I had a dozen or more rabbiting cutters alone. We had to do our own tennoning and mortising, even wood carving on occasions. Yes, times have changed."

"Ever belong to the Knights of Labor?"

"Yep. In 1877. Pretty nearly every union man did at one time or another in the early days. Of course, the Carpenters Union came first but we all gave the Knights a lift when we could. No, I never held office in their organization. Just tagged along with the rest."

"You have held office in the Carpenters, haven't you?"

Held Many Union Offices

"Held office? Better say offices, because I've held every office in the Galesburg local.

"Was president of the Galesburg Trades and Labor Assembly. Say, if there is any labor office in Galesburg that I did not fill at one time or another I just can't think what it might be."

"Heard from Jim recently?" Jim, Mr. Tate's son, is in the army.

"Yes, only a day or so ago. We expect to see him before Christmas. He's been in the army a year, now.

"And Myrtle?" a daughter.

"She's in Chicago and writes that she's busy in an essential war industry as a personnel director. She completed her college training some time ago and writes her mother that she likes the work. Expect her for Thanksgiving."

Feeling "Fine" at 81

Getting up from his chair, he pays The Labor News a visit now and then, he grunted a bit. "Rheumatism," he said. 'Got a twitch of it in my back today."

"Bother you much?"

"Not so much. When you are 81 you can't feel too good all the time.

"Rheumatism comes and goes, like everything else. When you are 81 and you feel fine part of the time, well, that's just dandy.

"Good bye. Will see you again. Good health and good luck."

A fine, genial and inspiring old gentleman--and a model trades unionist--just closed our office door and walked with remarkable vigor and cheeriness up Cherry toward Main Street. Our honored friend, James Calvin Tate.

Clyde Durnil is a frequent referral source in Tate Families of the Southern States, Laura Mentzel and Edith Updike, 1972. He was

very interested in learning about his heritage. This is a letter he wrote to Thomas Barnes of McMinnville, TN. It was typewritten and dated May 27, 1955.

Dear Brother Barnes,

I want to express my appreciation also for my brothers and sisters, for your letter.

What you have given us seems to be very close along what has been told us by our grandparents, who passed on many years ago.

Louisa and Julia Tate, went to Missouri, near Boonville from Tennessee.

Joshua A. Tate was a teacher, and in later years lived in Webster Grove, MO. He has been gone quite a number of years.

Perhaps with the above, some one there can identify the branch of the family who were our ancestors.

I am sending along some self addressed envelopes for anyone to use that may know something of the people we are trying to contact.

There is no objection to anyone reading the attached sketch showing the various names.

Very Truly Yours,

Clyde Durnil

Apparently the James Tate and John Tate who entered land on Collins River were the brothers of Louisa Tate who was the grandmother of the Durnil Children. Apparently Douglas Tate who lived near or in McMinnville, Tenn was the father of Louisa Tate. We are attempting to contact some of the Tate family who can give us information to the name of PRICE who married Jane Potts. Legend tells us he was a brother of General Sterling Price. We need this item to complete our record for a total of seven generations from the youngest member of our family.

Notes for MARY MAUDE LOUISA DURNIL:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Toward the end of her life, Mary Maude Smith nee Durnil wrote a letter to Ricki Wilkins who contacted her regarding this family's genealogy research. The following is a transposition of her letter of 1985 from Carlsbad, New Mexico. This letter was written on a manual typewriter and had a small picture of her copied onto the paper. It is dated 1984, and shows her seated at a Christmas holiday table with a large turkey on a platter. She looks like a small woman, very brightly dressed, who took great pride in her appearance; hair done beautifully and makeup applied.

"Dear Rickey, I hope I have your name correct. I am hard of hearing, and all my letters have to be read to me. I have been blind for two years, legally blind, which means I have perception light and make out large shapes around the lower part of my eyes. I am dependent on having things read to me, and most readers say, oh, this is just a lot of talk, you don't want to hear that. I can't really afford a full-time secretary companion, and since I have only a small apartment, no room for another person, besides which, I think it would drive me insane if I had someone at my elbow all the time. You will note that I am not a very good typist and am also using a relief machine since my own small one is out of order. However I hope that you can get a little sense out of what I am writing.

Here is all I can remember about my family.

My father was Alexander (other reports indicate Andrew) Durnil. His mother was Mary Durnil. I never knew her maiden name, if I ever heard it. I had her first name for my middle name. I was Maude Mary Louisa. The Louisa was after my maternal grandmother. My father's mother was twice married, and I think she married John Durnil the second marriage. Anyway, I knew only the Boyles family, long after both were dead. My father's half brother was named John Boyles and he married Julia Tate, who was sister to my maternal grandmother, Louisa Tate Talley. My sister Ollie was married to John Martin Jenry, and their daughter, and only child is named Marjorie Louise and was married to John Reiff. She is still living and is retired. She and her husband are living in El Paso, TX. I have most likely skipped over a lot, but this may give you some clues. I think your best bet may be to follow up the Durnil and Boyles side.

I don't know how much help it might be for you to come here, but I think it might help to know some relatives. I am the last of my age generation and am completely alone. I married twice and divorced two husbands, which sounds pretty bad for all of us. However, we are still friendly and I still hear from my second husband and Marjorie says the first one is still listed in the telephone book back in Boonville, MO.

I was back there when my younger sister's son, John Schilb died. He was the last of his family, so Marjorie, her husband and I flew back and buried him. His mother, my youngest sister disappeared twenty years ago and no trace of her was ever found. I can't believe that she is dead, but common sense tells me she must be or she would have managed to let me know. I just don't know. My mother had six children, Clyde, Ruby, Maude, Ollie, Nora and Grover. I heard Grover died about three years ago, but he never kept in touch with his family, though I know he had a son, but I never heard what the son was named. If there was a son, he must be about forty-five years old, thought I don't know anything about him.

Ruby, the oldest girl, died before I was born. I keep coming up with funny details I heard as a child. I don't know if anything I know will be of any use to you, but since you feel in the mood to travel, it is an ideal time to visit Carlsbad, New Mexico. We are close to many famous and scenic places, Carlsbad Caverns for one, some famous ranches, Indian Museums, etc. I go to them with friends, but now I go mostly just to be with them, and I like to ride, but I have so little vision, most people do not want to bother with taking care of a blind woman. When I go on a plane, I engage a wheel chair to take care of me while changing planes, and they take me round the airports and take the best care of me, but if I leave the airport to take a bus, I would be afraid to risk it, changing from a plane to a bus, getting into taxis, hunting for my baggage and seeing that it gets to stay with me is a problem. I just gave up. If I have to change planes to get anywhere, I just don't go.

I know this is badly written (it wasn't!), but I am only too thankful that I remember enough typing to be able to keep up my correspondence with old friends, thought my list grows smaller year by year. I don't know how long before there will be no one of the ones I knew so well. I am, so far the oldest one living, I just seem to tough to die. I just get the flue or a cough or something minor, and seldom get anything serious enough to keep me in bed, and I walk an average of a mile a day every morning. I use a white cane and black glasses and know the streets well, and all the dogs and most of their masters or mistresses at the other end of their leash.

No more. I think this page is about done, and I run on and on forever what I said in the last Line. I have the forgetter ever. If you would like to come down here, I would love to have you, however, I live in a sort of studio apartment in a large high rise building for the aged retirees. I am sorry that I haven't managed to answer you before, but I couldn't get anyone to read your letter until today, one of the ladies at my table came up to my apartment and read this one so I determined, good or bad, to answer and tell you what little I used to hear. I might be lucky enough to drop something that would be a clue or fill in between some of the Boyles family. I do remember Uncle John Boyles and his children, which were Stanley and our or five other children, but right now, I can't remember their names.

Sincerely, maybe your cousin, Maude Smith nee Durnil.

Notes for PEARL DOCHOW:

History of Herman Dochow Family by Miss Lillian Shimmick

Prolonged political oppression breeds discontentment and too often results in a hatred for the fatherland, its language and its laws. So it was with the family of Frederick Willie Dochow (Do-who) living in France near the German border. During the period of the Persecution of the Huguenots the family fled to Gemplen, Germany with their small son Frederick II born December 2, 1818. Gemplen became their abode where Frederick II learned and later followed the trade of a miller. Numbered among his friends was a young German girl, Miss Fredericka Enge whom he later married in Boitzenburg, Germany. Though this couple were born 9 children; Charlie, Herman (youngest) Albert, Matilda, Adolph, Edna, Martha, William and Gustav.

Warfare among German border states seemed never ending. To avoid further involvement, the Frederick Dochow family severed its ties with the homeland and emigrated to the United State of America. Their ocean travel from Germany to New York City numbered 14 days. The cross-country train travel from the East Coast to the state of Wisconsin, too, was slow and wearisome. On reaching their destination the Dochows were met by relatives who helped them to establish their home. As the children grew into adulthood, the family circle was broken; some married and settled in the Dakotas and in Minnesota. A couple of the brothers went west to Colorado and then on to Oregon. Frederick found the winters in Wisconsin and Minnesota too cold for comfort in his rheumatic condition. In search of a more favorable clime, Frederick persuaded his son Herman to accompany him to Atchison, KS to pick corn for Sam Arthur. While working there, it was Herman's good fortune to meet Miss Addie Minerva Arthur, the young lady whom he later married.

Herman and his wife set up housekeeping on a farm near Farmington, KS. While residing there, three daughters were born; Minnie, Grace and Pearl. From Farmington, the family moved to Osborne, KS and their son Loren was born.

The urge to move on westward was ever present among the young married folk who were eager to improve their lot. The Herman Dochow family was among those who joined the wagon train and traveled as Far West as Decatur County, KS. It was in 1887 that the family settled on a farm southeast of Jennings. A one-room dugout speedily became their home. A larger three-room sod house was build two years later to accommodate the large family. Here, a daughter, Bessie and later a son, Joe were born. Herman made no effort to teach his children to speak German, nor would he converse with others in his native language. The abuses and inequities experienced in the fatherland had left him embittered. He chose to converse, as best he could, in broken English.

The Dochows were responsible citizens; all were thrifty, hard-working, God-loving people. Herman was reared in the Lutheran Faith, his wife, in Methodism. The family attended the Methodist Church at Jennings often walking to day and evening services and Sunday school.

Herman was troubled with rheumatism. Home remedies were used to ease the pain. His wife often placed hot packs made of ears of unhusked corn taken steaming hot from the wash boiler around him. Time were hard and money was scarce. Coal was so expensive that cow and buffalo chips were gathered and used for fuel.

From the sod house the family established itself in a new two-story frame house which was built just west of their soddy. The house still stands and is presently owned by the daughter, Mrs. Pearl Dochow Boyles and her husband, Owen. The bricks for the chimney wee hauled from Norcatur and the lumber from Jennings. A second trip had to be made to Norcatur after the youngest child, Joe was found breaking the new bricks with his hammer. John and Pete Pauls and Harry Munson assisted Herman in building his house. Nick Hahn bore a well near the house in 1891. This well is in use today. Herman and his family rejoiced on September 27, 1892 when he obtained a patent from the United States government bearing the signature of President Benjamin Harrison for land on which he had built his house. NE1/4 of Section 6, Township 5, S Range 26 @ of the 6 PM. Later in June, 1900 a patent for school land was issued to Herman Dochow by the United States government for an adjacent quarter section of land SE1/4 - 6 - 5 -26 at that time W. E. Stanley was governor of Kansas.

The Dochows were sociable, out-going folk, never too busy to stop their work to help others or to engage in conversations. It was a common occurrence for the passer-by to stop at the Dochow house at the side of the road, where an invitation to enter and to remain for lunch was cheerfully extended; although the fare was meager-many times, no more than homemade bread and gravy. Many of the neighbors as they traveled toward the Dochow home could be recognized by the way they traveled. Mrs. Bill Lieber drove hard and fast; Mrs. Frank Price pulled back on the reins to maintain control; while D. S. Logan drove his team -alfalfa fed-at a leisurely pace. In addition to their allegiance to church and school, the Dochows became affiliated with local fraternal associations; Herman became a charter member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Jennings Lodge #449, organized on October 11, 1900. Later Addie and Pearl became members of the International Association of Rebekah Assemblies, Jennings Lila Rebekah Lodge # 430.

Daughters Minnie, Grace and Pearl received their formal education in several school districts. The school attended first was located just east of the present Boyles mailbox. Miss Letha Pine was the teacher. The second school attended was in a frame building known as the Elkhorn School, located east of the township (Allison) Road about a quarter of a mile west of the present Walter Warren residence. As the other children of the family became of school age, they attended the two-room frame schoolhouse located on a hill in the east pat of Jennings. Later in 1894, the schoolhouse was moved a short distance west where two more class rooms were added. Some of the teachers were G. W. Fields, Anna Bates, Mr. Brown, Louisa and J. P. Langley, Anna R. Van Wickle, 1885, Anna E. Bates, 1888; Grace E. Ford, Merita Speakman, Edwin Ashcraft, A. C. Banta and Louise Anderson.

Dr. Dwight Funk, the local family doctor was called to attend Herman in his last illness. Herman passed away at his home on April 6, 1903 at the age of 47. His death was attributed to the leakage of the heart. The bereaved family remained on the farm where they labored together to make their living caring for cattle and chickens and raising wheat and corn.

When the children were old enough to work out, they found employment in the neighborhood; Pearl as a teenager worked for the families of Mark Feely, John Nellans, Ran Bartley, Bill Willy, Bill Stramp, Mrs. Mary Wolfe, Bob Mizer, Bill Lieber, Kings at Lenora, Elic Bishop and Leonard Hill. Pearl's sister, Minnie also worked out. She was at the Frank Shimmick home to help when this writer was a baby. In June 1909, Pearl went to Kansas City, MO where she worked for the Loose and Wyld Candy Company and the Walkers Laundry. Later, she kept house for Miller Hageman, her grandmother's uncle who ran an apartment housers' laundry. In 1910, Pearl met Owen Boyles, a furniture finisher who worked for Robert Keith Carpet and Furniture Company. They were married at Olathe, KS on March 6, 1912. They bought a home in Kansas City, MO and lived there until 1916 when they moved to Jennings.

During Pearl's absence from home many changes had taken place in the Dochow household. Pearl's oldest sister, Annie, had married D. S. Logan and was living on a farm just southwest of Allison on the Solomon River. The Logans' had three children,

Ross, Glen and Mamie. Pearl's sister, Grace had married Thomas Davitt, a painter. They made their home on a farm southeast of Jennings. The Davitts had two sons, Loren and Raymond. Grace, after a short illness passed away in 1909 at the age of 29. Pearl's brother, Loren (Pete) had married Miss Nellie Smith, a hometown schoolmate. The couple moved to Kansas City where they lived for several yeas before they returned to make their home in Jennings. Their family consisted of six children: Ernest Edward, Bernard, Boyd, Vivian, Nettie Pearl and Addie Katheryn. Pearl's youngest sister, Bessie had married Nick Gibson. They made their home in Kansas City. Charles and Evelyn were children of this family. Pearl's mother and youngest unmarried brother, Joe were farming the homestead. When Joe as arrayed into the United States Army in 1916, Pearl and Owen Boyles returned to Jennings to be with Mrs. Dochow and to keep the Dochow farm in operation. On July 20, 1926, a son, Joe was born to Pearl and Owen. Joe attended elementary and high school at Jennings and in Oberlin. He served his country in World War II. He is married to Katherine Kirk and is now living in Kansas City, MO. They have a 16-year-old daughter, Vicki.

Mrs. Addie Dochow's retirement years were spent on the farm with Pearl and Owen. Her grandson, Raymond Davitt and his wife, Mildred and their three daughters, Frances, Maxine and Ardith lived a short distance from her. Mrs. Dochow was active and enjoyed life in the companionship of relatives and friends. In 1939, she suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, which resulted in several months of invalidism. She passed away at home on October 30, 1940 at the age of 80. She was preceded in death by two daughters, Grace Davitt in 1909 and Bessie Gibson in 1936; Annie Logan passed away later in 1954. Joe Dochow in 1956 and Loren (Pete) in 1961. Herman and Addie Dochow were laid to rest in the Jennings Cemetery.

Pearl and Owen still reside on the farm enjoying the freedom of the out-of-doors. They have rented the farm ground and have things pretty much as they want them out there. They still have chickens and a ga4rden and depend on their car to get them to the places where they need to go. On March 14, 1974, Pearl's 91st birthday, Mrs. Leroy (Florence Nauer) Wyld hosted a birthday party honoring Pearl and Mrs. Ruby Stroup, whose birthdays are on the same day. Mahy friends and relatives called to extend congratulations, Pearl and Owen enjoy each day to the fullest keeping informed by reading and watching TV and listening to radio programs. They vote at elections, and enjoy visiting and entertaining. The Welcome Mat is always at the door.

The writer is indebted to Pearl Boyles and her niece, Evelyn Givson Keith and to Mrs. Albert McKenna for information and assistance.

Notes for DANIEL EMERSON WILKINS:

AKA Jasper Daniel Wilkins

AKA J. Dan Wilkins

AKA John Dan Wilkins

He deserted his wife and children in 1922 in Chicago. Subsequently, the children became wards of the State of Illinois. The Illinois Children's Home and Aid Society has been very helpful in detailing the events occurring to this family and the children. Most were put into foster homes and most remained in limited contact into their adulthood. Many, despite the hardships of the Great Depression, multiple foster homes or orphanages, rose above their humble beginnings and became productive, contributing members of society. There are several stories of several of these children overcoming these poor odds and becoming successful business people and/or parents.

Daniel Emerson Wilkins was reported to be living in or near Dekalb County, AL with another family in 1952 with a son, Douglas, who "was not an orphan". No further information is known to date.

My aunt Florence was simply one of the classiest women I have ever met. She was a role model for me as a young adult woman and I believe that my adoption of her dressing and grooming habits, professionalism and manners have served me well professionally and personally my entire life. She was a loving and loyal ally and generously gave me clothing and advice that I would not have had access to, living in a small rural community. I will be grateful to her always and could only hope that each young woman would have a similar mentor.

FOR THOSE WHO KNEW HER

We begin the February Newsletter on a rather sad note. This past month we lost one of our Shrine ladi3s. While it seems there are those put on this earth to worry their fellow men, cause upheaval and chaos, there are those few that add warmth and understanding.

A small lady with a bit heart, add a great personality, a vibrant smile, charm, humor and a wonderful hostess and you have a lady ten foot tall. What a pity there are not more of these rare persons placed on this good earth to add to our comfort and enjoyment. For those who were friends, we should consider ourselves most fortunate to have known and shared time with her.

Our sorrow goes to Andy Wilkins on the loss of his mate, Florence for some 61 years. Not only will there be a vacant spot in his life, bit in ours as well. A Pit there are not more persons in this world like Florence. What a wonderful world it would be.

Susan Edna Tate Boyd, wife of John Henry Harrison Boyd

December 3, 1877 - December 29, 1958

Daughter of D. M. "Doc" and Adelaide (Dearing) Tate.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In an email received February 21, 2001, Cindy (Deadmon) King writes:

Edna was the second wife of John Henry Harrison Boyd. He is considered the founder of the nursery (as in plants) industry in Warren County. Most of the family members that we know are from his "first" family with his first wife. I did notice in the cemetery books that John & Edna had several children as well.

The nursery industry in Warren County is prominent. And that is an understatement. At one time in the '90s, there were over 300 commercial nurseries. That does not count all the local farmers who raise a little nursery stock out back.

Edna and John are buried at Hebron Cemetery, a mile west of Irving College in southeastern Warren County along with three of their daughters and two granddaughters. This is in the general "Tate" area--close to Viola, close to Grundy County.

If there were a "royal" family in Warren County, the Boyds would be it. You would never know by their manner or treatment of others that they are a wealthy family. They are among the kindest and most generous individuals that I've met. Even the younger generations [my age!] that might be prone to show their money are not that way. When Mother worked at the Welfare Department in 1967-68, she worked with Larry Boyd. Larry is the family historian. I'll follow up on that to see what else we can discover about Edna.

John Henry Harrison Boyd married 1) Ersa J. Johnson, May 15, 1887 in Sequatchie County, Tennessee; 2) Sarah Edna Tate, May 21, 1893 in Sequatchie County, Tennessee.

The marriage information is from Family Tree Maker's Family Archives, CD #235, Marriage Index: Tennessee, 1851-1900.

John and Ersa had two sons: Fernando Campbell Boyd, Sr. (1888-1960) and James Reed Boyd (1890-1965).

Ersa (Ersy) was born in 1868 and died in 1892. I would guess that Edna raised the two boys. Fernando's oldest son, Bill, married my grandfather's first cousin, Alma. Bill died in 1948 of cancer. Never do we see Larry (the historian) or Jim & Alene (Larry's parents) that they do not mention their appreciation for Alma's devotion to Bill.

John H. H. Boyd moved his family to the Irving College area 1904. Fernando, Sr. & wife had 13 children. Jim and wife had 7.

Burial: December 1958, Hebron Cemetery, Viola, Warren County, TN

Notes for LYDIA ANN SHANKLE:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

(in part)....She was "Mama" to me, probably because Mother called her that, too. She had beautiful white, naturally curly hair for as long as I can remember. In the tintype picture we have, it appeared to be light brown when she was young. She had blue eyes and fair skin, and was pleasingly plump as seen in pictures. I have no way of knowing how tall she was, but she wasn't as tall as my Mother, who was 5'9". I was twelve when she died.

She and my mother lived together and after I was born, she took care of me while Mother worked. She could sew and had an old treadle sewing machine. To open it for sewing, the top opened and lifted the machine out to make a work table. I would lie on top of that and take a nap when she sewed. The soothing noise always made me sleepy.

While we were living on Ewing, Mother remarried. "Mama" lived with us a while, but when Aunt Lou Ella, came to Dallas, she moved in with her on Elmore.

I remember one holiday, either Christmas or New Years, when I was fairly small, Mother had bought some fireworks. I never liked the firecrackers or anything loud, so she had bought me some Roman Candles and sparklers. I kept begging "mama" to shoot off some of the Roman Candles, but because it was very cold, she decided to light one and open the window and shoot it off through it. She lit it, but didn't quite get the window open before it started going off. Balls of fire were going off all in the room, and one or two landed on the bed and burned a hole in the quilt.

So far as I know, no one knew that "Mama" dipped snuff until she moved in with Aunt Lou Ella. Aunt Lou Ella also dipped snuff and would buy some for "Mama", too. But "Mama" would never dip in front of Aunt Lou Ella. When she died, her little snuff can was in her apron pocket.

I remember very little about when "Mama" died. I just remember that we went to the house and "Mama" was i bed. I remember Mother telling me that she was very sick. Mother put me to bed and I remember thinking that "Mama" would be alright in the morning. Mother came in later, and work me and told me that "Mama" had died. I went in and saw her before the funeral home came to get her. The funeral home was just a few doors down Denley Drive from where "Mama" and Aunt Lou Ella lived.

I certainly have very good memories of her, but I think that something that Mother wrote about her was a very good tribute. In some of Mother's papers about what little she knew about the family history, she had written: "Mama" was never known to say a bad word about anyone."

"Mamma took with a sick stomach and Tuesday evening and about 10:00 PM that night got up and seemed to loose use of herself. I got her in a chair and after about an hour she still couldn't move. I called Hope, they came and just as we got her on the bed, she fainted. We called the doctor and the next day he said he didn't think she would ever walk again. For three days she was almost helpless but began to improve and got able to walk with a cane and a little help. We left the light on at night for three weeks. But that night she seemed to feel so much better and insisted on putting the light out. But next evening about 5 o'clock, she took real sick at her stomach again and about 9 had the hardest chill or rigor. Robert stayed till 2 o'clock and she seemed to be resting. He went home but Grace stayed all night, but early next morning we knew she was so much worse. We called Robert and Hope. They came, also phoned "Cap" (Loyd) and Leora. When the doctor came out about 10 o'clock, he said her time was short. The boys had gone on to work. We called them. "Cap" and Leora and Iona (Grace) got here about 2:30 Wednesday evening the 18th of December. Mamma died Thursday morning at 10 minutes till 1 o'clock; was carried to Smith & Lamar funeral home and on to the Albin Cemetery in Comanche County and buried beside Papa on Saturday, December 20, 1941. Papa died June 6, 1919.

Notes for RAYMOND COOKE:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

Raymond and Lydia bought a farm ("the old Cooke homestead") in Gustine in 1904 and farmed it until Raymond died in 1919. There was no road into the property, you had to go through the Caraway Ranch to get to it. Lydia and their son, Robert, and his wife, Vida and their children, Hollis and Marie lived there for several years before Robert and family moved to Dallas. Lydia continued living there until about 1928 when she sold it their son Loyd "Cap" and his wife Leora (Randerson) Cooke. Cap and Leora remodeled the old farm house and lived there until about 1950. The farm was located five miles east of Gustine.

"Raymond and Lydia's children went to school at Farmers Chapel and later at Gustine school. I used to play at the farm, down in the lower pasture by the creek. It was an old Indian Burial Ground and I made my playhouse of of Indian arrow heads."

Raymond died in the 1919 flu epidemic. His death certificate shows cause of death as "La Grippe Pneumonia." He is buried in the Albin Cemetery, Comanche, Texas. His tombstone looks like a wooden log, possibly the symbol of Woodmen of the World

Lydia stayed on the farm for many years after his death, but in time, she moved to Dallas to be near her children. Raymond and Lydia's son, Loyd Cooke and his wife, Leora (Randerson) Cooke bought the old homestead and they sold the old place in either 1968 or 1969. In 1992, Hollis and Billie went to see it and found out that a new owner had bought it and torn it down.

Notes for WILLIAM DAWSON TATE:

In an email to Ricki Wilkins, dated April 13, 2001, Michael William Tate writes:

I can't explain it, but it seems that when some people are disconnected from their roots for most of their lives, those same people (once they're bit by the genealogy bug) are more driven to discover them.

 

Until about two weeks ago I had noidea who my Great Grandfather (William Dawson Tate) really was let alone my ancestry.  We had stories (Family Fables), a couple of photos, obituary and death certificate, but little more. 

 

His oldest Son, myGrandfather (Eugene Fred) , left home at 10yrs old, was caught, returned home and made to where girls dresses so he wouldn't run away again (in those clothes). It didn't take long, he left for good a few years later.  In and out of trouble as a youth, he wound up doing "Hard Time" in Fort Leavenworth, KS. Released at 28 years of age, he then Married a saintly and very poor 14yr. old girl from Arkansas (My grandmother).

 

They had 13 children together with 9 surviving to adulthood.  This poor white trash bunch of rednecks migrated to California during the Great Depression.  My Grandfather (a compulsive gambler) came and went (for weeks and months at a time) leaving my Grandmother to bear and raise the children.  They all worked picking cotton or whatever grew that needed picking.  My Grandmother, a deeply religious woman held it all together with the help of the older kids. 

 

In spite of his shortcomings, the kids idolized him.  My Grandmother made sure of that. She was really something special. My Grandfather barely knew anything about his ancestry - (very sketchy info) but with a death certificate from my Great Grandfather (Rev.Thomas M.), US Census data, and the names of three of his outlaw brothers from the family fables, I was blessed to find a precise match less than two weeks ago.

 

That was exciting!  The bug bit hard.  Imagine my surprise when I found out that the lineage from Calvin G.S. Tate on back had already been proven qualified for S.A.R. & D.A.R. Membership.  I don't know if I'll ever apply for membership, but I thought that was Pretty Damn Cool!  (overwhelming really)

Notes for JOHN MARTIN JENRY:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Source: Melton's "History of Cooper County"

John Martin Jenry, proprietor of the Jenry Taxi Co. in Boonville, has had more than his share of thrilling experiences.

During the World War he departed September 19, 1917 for Camp Funston Kansas where he was a member of Co. H, 356th Infantry. On December 2 he contracted pneumonia and was in the army hospital at Ft. Riley Kansas until December 19 when he was given a furlough. He arrived home Dec 20 and the following day he married Miss Ollie Durnil of his home community, Clarks Fork. He reported back to Camp Funston, Jan 7 1918. On February 28, 1918, he was transferred to the Third Division at Camp Steward, Virginia arriving there March 3. On April 6 1918 he sailed for Brest France on the Great Northern and his division moved up to the Gonde Corps area.

He was in two major defensives and three major offensives of the great war and also was in the Army of Occupation in Germany. Mr. Jenry who serial number was 2,214, 530, has the following record of service in 1918; The Aisne Defense, Jun 1 to 5. In it his machine gun battalion fought in the streets of Chateau Thierry. There the Germans were within 35 miles of Paris, their nearest approach to the French capital. The Champagne Marne Defensive July 15 to 18.

The Aisne-Marne Defensive July 18 to 30. Mr. Jenry's outfit crossed the Marne, July 21 and drove the enemy back 29 kilometers. A kilometer is about five eighths of a mile. The advance was so fast that Mr. Jenry's regiment fought with machine guns mounted on trucks. The advance was continuing July 30, when his division was relieved. The Saint- Mihiel Offensive, September 12 to 16. This was an outstanding military ccomplishment. The French previously had failed to take Mount Seek a high hill in the St. Mihiel sector, where the fighting was most concentrated. They had tried a barrage in front of the enemy. General Pershing reversed their tactics, shooting the barrage behind their trenches and then gradually pulling it back. When the fire approached the enemy position, the Americans went over the top. The Germans were demoralized by the barrage bursting thick among them. Their retreat became a rout.

The Meuse-Argonne Offensive, Sept. 26 to the end of the War, Nov 11. Here Mr. Jenry's division relieved in daylight the 79th Division, which, under the brunt of terrific fighting had been forced to retreat. The Third Division held the enemy. It was a regular army outfit originally filled with seasoned troopers who had fought from palms to pines.

Through the long months of hard fighting that Mr. Jenry and his comrades experienced a vast majority of the regulars had fallen and were "pushing daisies in Flanders". But the replacements soon caught the spirit of the surviving old timers and the division always was the same hell bent fighting machine, deadly with machine guns, artillery and the long army rifles with which they picked off the enemy at 600 yards, even on a windy day.

On Dec 1 1918, the Third Division became part of the Army of Occupation. A few days before that, Mr. Jenry and his buddies had Thanksgiving dinner on the Moselle river. They dined on corn beef and went to the river to wash it down. Then , through a corner of the tiny Kingdom of Luxembourg they marched on to make Andernoch, Germany on the Rhine their regimental headquarters.

Mr. Jenry served in Germany until August 9 1919, when the regiment left for Brest and on August 25, arrived at Hoboken, New Jersey. At Camp Zachary Taylor, near Louisville he was honorable discharged. Sept 4, 1919 with the notation on his discharge: "Excellent character."

Mr. Jenry was born September 13, 1890 in a farm home that sat in a woodland near Clarks Fork. He is the son of Charles Jenry and Margaret Hoerl Jenry. He attended Oak Grove rural school. He farmed before the war and for five years after his discharge.

Mr. Jenry moved to Boonville November 12, 1924, and three days later entered the taxi business with one car. He built the business to five cars in 1929. Mr. & Mrs. Jenry have one daughter, Miss Marjorie Louise Jenry, born September 1, 1920.

Mr. Jenry's thrilling adventures did not end with the World War. About 5:00 PM on March 14 1935, he answered a fake telephone call and was kidnapped by four desperate Reformatory inmates who forced him to drive to near Gainesville MO, with guns constantly at his back and side. The tied him in the woods and drove off in his car, crossing into Arkansas.

Mr. Jenry soon freed himself and started walking back north along the highway. He was picked up by Capt. J E Will banks and R S Odom of the Reformatory, who were in the chase. Three of the inmates later were captured at Claremore Okla., and were given heavy prison sentences. The ringleader, the most dangerous of the quartet, is still at large. He was believed to be slightly unbalanced mentally. Only Mr. Jenry's good judgment in promptly complying with his captors' demands and his diplomacy and gameness in facing danger saved his life.

Notes for DANIEL BEATTY WILKINS:

Daniel Beatty Wilkins was murdered by David William Thorn in Rockford, IL.

This from an email, from Danna B. Wilkins, Daniel's daughter on April 6, 2001

The police told me that he died on Christmas Day, but I don't believe that is documented because the body wasn't found until New Year's Day. Apparently the information they had was from the murderer and witness. They informed me that forensic science really could not pin point exact times of death.....guess work. You have the date of January 1986 because that is when the body was found. I would put the actual date at December 25, 1986.

65-Year-Old Man Found Dead Near Service Road, by Joe Baker

Rockford's first killing of the New Year was discovered early Wednesday on the city's southeast side. The body of Daniel B. Wilkins, 65, was found near South Sixth Street and Wells Avenue by a police patrol. The body, wrapped in a blanket, was discovered about 3:10 AM, lying alongside a service road running behind Rockford Products Corp. Detectives said a police patrol was in the area looking for a stolen car and a stolen sewing machine. The police squad located a vehicle that had a sewing machine on the rear seat. As officers prepare to investigate the car further they noticed marks in the snow alongside the road, as if something had been dragged for some distance. They followed the marks and found Wilkins.

Investigators said the body showed evidence of a beating. The Winnebago County Coroner's office said, however, that autopsy results were not complete Wednesday night and the cause of death was then determined. Those results are expected to be available today.

Police said they believe the crime was not committed where the body was found, but the location of the killing remained unknown Wednesday night. Detectives said Wilkins had been dead for several hours, but the body is believed to have been dumped where was found for only for a short period because it was not frozen. Wilkins' address was not known Wednesday night. Investigators said his last known address was a Downtown hotel. He has no relatives in Rockford. Police said a sister lives in Wheaton and his daughters live in Arizona in New Jersey. He also has two brothers. Relays of detectives worked on the case throughout the daytime hours and into Wednesday night, trying to turn up more information. As of 9 PM Wednesday no one was in custody and no main suspects had been developed.

Suspect Talks Away Plea Bargain, by Joe Lamb

Murder suspect David William Thorn blew a chance for a plea bargain sentence when he talked to a television newsman Monday. Thorn, 34, had been offered a plea bargain sentence of 10 years in prison in the strangulation of Daniel B. Wilkins January 1, 1986.

But the plea bargain agreement was withdrawn Tuesday by assistant state's attorney Dan Torrisi after Thorn suggested to a newsman that he is innocent. Thorn was quoted on a television news program Monday night as saying he would plead guilty to a reduced charge of aggravated battery in exchange for the ten-year sentence. Torrisi and Public Defender Gary Pumilia told Circuit Judge Harris Agnew the plea negotiations broke down after comments aired in a report on WREX-TV. Agnew set the case for trial on the murder charge for March 16. Torrisi said outside the courtroom that he was irritated because Thorn, in a telephone call from the jail, told WREX-TV that police had not thoroughly investigated Wilkins' death and suggested that someone else committed the crime.

" I believe the police did their job the way it was supposed to be done," Torrisi said. He said that when Thorn made his public comments, "I decided to let a jury decide." Pumilia said several other plea agreements in Thorn's case have been canceled before reaching court during the past year.

Thorn was arrested after the body of Wilkins was found wrapped in a blanket alongside a service road behind Rockford Products Company near Sixth Street and Wells Avenue. Police believe Wilkins was killed during an argument in a Sixth Street apartment that he shared with Thorn. Thorn has been held in County Jail under $250,000 bond since his arrest.

Thorn Gets 10 Years On Reduced Charge In Death, by Joe Lamb

After 534 days in jail for a murderer he insisted to the last he doesn't remember, David William Thorn was sentenced to 10 years in prison on a reduced charge of aggravated battery in Circuit Court Thursday. The negotiated sentence and guilty plea were identical to an agreement scrapped in January after a television newsman reported the deal in advance. Thorn, 34, had been charged with murder in the January 1, 1986, strangulation and beating of his roommate, Daniel B. Wilkins, 65, 2623 South Sixth Street.

"David still says he doesn't know if he did it," said Public Defender Gary Pumilia, who joined Assistant State's Attorney Norman Wheeler in recommending the plea agreement to Circuit Judge Harris Agnew. "He has never denied it - he says he was to drunk to remember, but he doesn't believe he could have done it," Pumilia said.

Wilkins' body, which police said showed signs of an extensive and brutal beating, was found wrapped in a blanket along a service road behind Rockford Products Corp. in southeast Rockford. Both Pumilia and Wheeler said the strongest evidence against Thorn involved the beating of Wilkins. The murder charge, they said was clouded by contradictory statements from reluctant witnesses, one of whom suggested that another person actually strangled Wilkins. In January, Thorn complain to a reporter for WREX- TV that police had not done a thorough investigation, but said he would plead to the aggravated battery charge. The news report prompted Assistant State's Attorney Daniel Torrisi, assigned to the case at that time, to withdraw the plea agreement. Wheeler, who said the case was assigned to him Thursday, said police did more investigation but found no solid evidence the other person strangled Wilkins. However, he doubted the evidence against the warrant was enough to convict him on the murder charge.

Pumilia said he is certain "a jury would have found him innocent of murder, but guilty of aggravated battery." "It's really questionable that he killed him," Pumilia continued. "There's evidence that it (the murder) occurred in later time."

In sentencing Thorn, Agnew imposed the maximum, extended-term sentence for aggravated battery. He cited the brutal nature of the beating of Wilkins and also a prior felony conviction for burglary on Thorn's record. Thorn made a brief statement to Agnew, but spoke in such a low voice; his words were inaudible in the courtroom. Pumilia said later, Thorn told the judge he held "no resentment" in excepting the plea agreement. He also asked Agnew to delay his transfer to prison until he can be visited by an infant child being cared for by relatives in Wisconsin. Thorn was given credit against the ten-year sentence for the 534 days he has spent in jail. Under Illinois law, he will be eligible for release from prison and about 3 ½ years.

Notes for WILLIAM WARREN DIXON WILKINS:

Excerpt from the Davis Leader, January 23, 1930

Davis, Jan. 23-"Mr. and Mrs. Sam Goeke have taken 2 young boys to raise."

(I found this interesting because one of those boys, Bill, became my brother-in-law in 1947. Bill and Dan Wilkins were foster children on the farm where Lake Summerset is today. Bill would have been 7 years old and Dan would have been 9 at that time. Bill died in 1990 at age 67 and Dan died in 1985 at age 65. Sam and Martha (Miller) Goeke moved from the farm to Dr. Abram Wilson's Davis home in 1939 after the doctor died.)

Savanna Times Journal, Savanna, Carroll County, IL, Tuesday, December 8, 1987

Front Page, Six columns above the fold, continued for six columns on page 16 - reading as follows:

You Should Forgive, But Can You Forget?

For most people, December 7, is just another day in the year or it means that there are 18 more shopping days until Christmas. But, for a small group of people, and especially one Savanna resident, December 7 means more, much more, than that.

Bill Wilkins, 65, was on guard duty December 7, 1941, at post 81, just off the U. S. Battleship Arizona, In Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked. "When the first bomb went off on Ford Island, it just blew up dirt. I thought it was the Army Air Corps playing around," he remembers. "Then the others started going off and I saw the planes, then I knew something more was happening".

Wilkins, who was in the 3rd Defense Battalion at Pearl Harbor, said that at the time, every soldier, sailor and Marine knew they would be going to war against Japan.

"We were at Midway Island about eight months prior to that, fortifying that island for war," he said. After completing the task at Midway, the group headed to Pearl Harbor, where they had a great bit party. He said they had what they called "a battle of bands" between the services. "I got to see the show every night except the last one, December 6, because I had guard duty that night," he said. "The next morning as the colors had played, I stood and presented arms to the flag, then the first bomb went off." (It was 7:55 A.M.)

After that, I was on guard duty for 72 hours straight with no food or water," he remembers. He said they couldn't get any food or water because everything was so chaotic after the attack. We (the soldiers) felt there could be an attack at Pearl," he remembers. "But, the government made us concentrate on Midway. I don't think they (upper military command) thought the Japanese had enough guts to attack Pearl Harbor."

Wilkins remembers all too well the feeling of sitting at his guard post with bombs and explosions going off all around him. At one point he had five rounds of rifle ammunition left, but he shot those at a Japanese torpedo plane. "Then I thought to myself, 'Now, I'm out of ammunition. What if the Japs send in paratroopers,'" he said. Those paratroopers never came and a sergeant who came by later replenished Wilkins' ammunition supply.

After the attack at Pearl Harbor, Wilkins' outfit was sent to Hickam Field to set up gun positions, but soon after they got the positions set, they got travel orders. "We weren't out of Pearl 20 minutes before we saw our first Japanese submarine," he said.

Wilkins didn't spend his entire service time at Pearl Harbor. He served two tours of duty in the Pacific Theater during World War II, because he and another group of soldiers couldn't stand being back in the states. "There was a group of 17 of us that were sent back to the United States, but we couldn't stand it," he said. "We wanted to fight the Japanese, so we all volunteered for another tour of duty."

That second tour of duty put him in the midst of probably one of the bloodiest battles of World War II in the Pacific, the battle to gain control of Peleliu Island, east of Japan.

Wilkins remembers that naval intelligence had told them that they could get the beachhead formed in 30 hours and take control of the island in 72 hours. Thirty days later they had the beachhead formed and in 72 days, Peleliu was controlled by the United States. "What they didn't know was that the Japanese had troops on Babelthaupe Island to replenish the ones we would kill day after day," Wilkins said. He said the Japanese troops would wade from Babelthaupe to Peleliu during low tide at night. "Once we got control of the airfield on Peleliu, we were able to bomb Babelthaupe constantly so we could take control of the island," he said.

Wilkins and his wife, Marian, went back to Pearl Harbor in the mid 1970's to visit. "While on a tour of Pearl, the guide asked me to give a dissertation of what had happened. I did pretty good until we came upon the Arizona," he said. "I don't expect to go back to Pearl Harbor."

Not only do memories, especially those of this nature, die hard, but so do the feelings toward the people that were once the enemies of America. "I personally feel bad about seeing the Arizona as a memorial and allowing the Japanese people step foot on it." He said. "I don't think it's right."

"They say you are supposed to forgive the Japanese for what they did, but how can you forget what they did," he said. "We were attacked without a declaration of war."

Wilkins now belongs to a group of people who are linked to Pearl Harbor, the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association. They meet once a year in the Quad Cities; this year in East Moline Wilkins has been the commander of the group three times.

"One of the responsibilities of the commander is to keep the "last bottle", this is a memorial to those survivors of Pearl who have now died" he said. Wilkins has a last bottle in his home, but rarely talks about it. "When people see it, they know what it means," he said.

After being in heavy battle during World War II, Wilkins has some strong feelings for the soldiers that fought in Korea and Vietnam. "In World War II, we were dedicated soldiers, sailors and Marines, dedicated to winning the war," he said. "When you go to war, you have to know your enemy."

When the conflict in Korea broke out, he sort of accepted it. He sort of accepted Vietnam, in the beginning. "When I found out they couldn't win in Vietnam, I feel it shouldn't have happened in the first place." Wilkins said he has a great deal of respect for the veterans of Vietnam. "I think the problem prevalent with Vietnam veterans and their lack of recognition is the fact that they weren't allowed to win the war. In World Wars I and II, we had a victory, Vietnam wasn't allowed to have one," he said.

Wilkins was on hand for a special viewing of the movie, "Toro, Toro, Toro," when it was first released. "They showed it to a group of Pearl Harbor survivors in the Quad Cities," he said. He also said that most of the group found the movie to be very accurate in what happened at Pearl. After seeing the movie, he still couldn't figure out, after all those years, how the Japanese were able to attack Pearl Harbor the way they did.

It wasn't until he read the book, "We Awoke at Dawn," that he finally figured out what had happened, although he still doesn't understand all of it. He even wrote a small passage on the inside cover of the book explaining his feeling of the whole attack. Among those feelings is the court-martial of an admiral and a general who were in command at the time of the attack. To this day, he still sits with his back against a wall. "I can't stand the thought of anyone attacking me from behind," he said.

Although he has been going to the survivor's reunions for years, they're still not easy to attend. "At first, the reunions were tough. We did not take our wives or any guests and the tension was very high," he said. "Now, we can take our wives or a guest, but that doesn't make it any easier."

Through his actions at Pearl Harbor and the battle for Peleliu, Wilkins has received a Presidential Commendation and seven medals, including two bronze stars. He also recently received a letter from Illinois Governor James R. Thompson in recognition for his service in Pearl Harbor. That letter came almost 46 years after the attack.

"I don't like to dwell on being a hero," he said. "I was a fighting Marine with a job to do and I did it."

Notes for LOU ELLA COOKE:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

Lou Ella (Cooke) Hawkins and her sister-in-law, Vida Cooke, each had boys born January 2, 1916. vida had just finished reading a book about two boys named Hollis and Hancel, so Vida named her boy Hollis and Lou Ella named her boy Hancel.

Aunt Ella and Ernest ran a store in Comanche in the bend of the road

Source: Hollis R. Cooke, November 1989)

"Lou Ella Cooke Hawkins was operated on April 20, 1950 for cancer of the breast (right) which spread to her right lung. They gave her all the x-ray treatments she could take. After spending almost five months in my mother's (Grace) house, she was able to be in her own home (which she loved dearly) with the aid of a lady to stay with her. She finally was able to stay alone and was able to work in her garden and flowers which was her dearest hobby. This rocked on until around Xmas of 1952. She was a lover of crochet and fancy novelties and worked so very hard for everyone to be remembered by her for the holidays. Then after Xmas she gave in to her feelings and was forced to start having fluid drained from around her lungs - one being completely gone and with only about half of the left lung left to breathe from. This draining was done ever four to six days continuously from January till she finally had to give up and go to the hospital and under an oxygen tent the 24th of April. Very little relief was gained only once thereafter. She lingered suffering, having her good and bad days until May 7, 1953 for only about two days she didn't seem to know anything altho she had a spell on Monday night and Tuesday said a lot (to me) but Tuesday she knew barely nothing and being under the influence of medicine all Wednesday until about 4:45 AM. That morn she drew her last breath, died without outward pain and easy May 7th.

Written by her sister, Grace, on Mother's Day, May 12, 1953.

Loyd and Leora lived on the old Cooke homestead in Gustine, Texas for many years and remodeled it after many years. When my Dad (Hollis Cooke) and I went to Gustine in 1992, we found that someone had bought the old Cooke homestead and had torn down the old house. The old farm was five miles east of Gustine. Raymond and Lydia Cooke bought the farm in 1904.

Notes for LOWELL MARSHALL COOKE:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

Lowell and Myldred "Carroll" Carroll met when Grace (Cooke) White invited Lowell to a sunrise breakfast at White Rock Lake. Grace and Carroll were both employees of F. W. Woolworth Co. at the time. After Lowell and Carroll were married they moved to Brownwood where Lowell had a job laying pipe. Lowell went to Howard Payne University at Brownwood, TX. He had an old car which he build himself and he called it a "Whoopee". It was a car frame, with seats, steering wheel and something like an oval tank on the back (We have a photo of this car.) While he was in Gustine, TX, he worked as a shine boy in a barber shop. When he first came to Dallas, he worked with his cousin, Hollis Cooke, in a service station as a car washer at 918 W. Davis St. His first real job in Dallas was with the City of Dallas Water Department working for his uncle, Robert Richard Cooke. Later he was superintendent of Lakes for the City of Dallas for many years. They lived in two different houses on White Rock Lake. Lowell was very tall and handsome and had a very nice personality. He loved animals of all kinds and at one time had a crocodile which managed to escape down the drain. He had a monkey which he got from his good friend, Pierre Fontaine, the Dallas Zoo manager. It came straight from the jungles in South America. He tamed it and trained it to do all kinds of tricks. He named it "Cookie." He took a trip to Alaska going way back in the wilderness by mail plane and stayed with a weatherman there. He killed the largest polar bear that was ever brought out of Alaska. He may still hold that record.

Myldred was called "Carroll" by everyone. She worked at W. F. Woolworth Co. with Grace (Cooke) White. Sometime after Myldred and Lowell married, she had a brain tumor and was in the hospital for months.

Mildred and Lowell lived in Gilmer, Texas while they were married. Lowell and Mildred were separated, and if Lowell had lived two more weeks, the divorce would have been final from Mildred, the second wife.

Notes for ROBERT RICHARD "BOB" COOKE:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

In 1874 Comanche was a typical cowman and ranchers' town. With a population of about one thousand people in the county, Comanche had seven saloons and men found recreation in card games, billiards and horse racing. The women buried themselves with household chores, church socials, and quilting bees. Most schools were only open three or four months a year. Most schools were only open three or four months a year.

After the cattle boom, the range land in the county was cut up into farms and cotton became the principal crop. In 2900 about 65,000 bales were shipped from the County, and by 1903, the town of Comanche had the distinction of buying and shipping more cotton than any town in west of Forth Worth. The boll weevil had been found in McLennan County in 1905, but did not advance to Comanche's cotton fields until 1914. Meanwhile, in 1907, an experimental crop of peanuts was planted in the sandy loam. The following year fifteen carloads of peanuts were marketed at sixty cents a bushel.

Robert Richard "Bob" Cooke, the third child of Raymond and Lydia Ann (Shankle) Cooke, was born and raised on a farm in Comanche County, TX. He had two sisters, Lou Ella and Iona Grace, and two brothers, Virgil Loyd "Cap" and Christopher Hope "Doc." Bob and his brother, Loyd married sisters; Bob married Vida Randerson and Loyd married Leora Randerson.

"My Dad was a farmer in Comanche County until he came to Dallas. He would be plowing in the field and he'd quit and go home and take his team to the house and tell Mamma that he had a trade worked out in his mind and he'd go off to somebody's house and he'd make a trade with them. He figured he could make more money doing that than plowing and he did! Also, he and his team worked for the railroad occasionally on maintenance work."

In April 1992, Billie went with Hollis to visit where he was born and spent the first six years of his life - Energy and Gustine in Comanche County, TX. These are some of the recollections he told about his early life and his parents on that trip:

"Every year on the Brazos River in Grandbury, TX, the Cooke Family had a Family Reunion. All of the relatives came with their kids. The women brought lots of food, visited and did handwork and the kids went swimming and played. The men had other activities - Bob traded cars, cattle, anything - but always traded for something AND money! He never gave money in a trade, but always got money in addition to the trade. He really enjoyed it! Loyd (Bob's brother) and Bob traded cars every year at the reunion. Bob's car was always newer that Loyd's, so Bob would get Loyd's car and money too. Bob felt like he always got a better deal than Loyd.

Before Bob and Vida married, he went to Draughns/Business College School in Comanche and studied Business.

On Saturdays Bob and Vida loaded their wagon with the butter, eggs, and peanuts they raised and went from their farm into Gustine to sell or trade for essentials. They would also get a block of ice and wrap in in blankets to keep it from melting before they got home.

"Grandma Cooks's home in Gustine was across the street from the Nelson place and down one lot and due south of the Methodist Church. Bob and Vida and Hollis lived in the Nelson place for a year or two." (We saw the old Nelson place and where Lydia Ann's home had been, but the house was gone and another house had been built on the lot. Part of the old chimney was still there.)

Bob ran the only store in Energy when Hollis was born and they lived somewhere back of a nearby creek. When Hollis was about three years old, he walked from the house by the creek to the store where Bob and Vida were working and told them "a big bug went across where I was." When they went out to see what he was talking about, they found a big copperhead snake!

When Hollis was small, he was a very picky eater and anytime his mother asked him what he wanted to eat, his answer was always the same "thurp, thucker, and thurdy pop" - syrup, sucker and soda pop!

"Bob had one of the few phones in Gustine in 1922. When Alta Ray, their four week old baby girl, became sick, in October 1922, Bob called the doctor to come. The doctor had to come by horseback or wagon and by the time he arrived, Alta Ray had died. (She probably died of pneumonia.) This upset Bob so much that in November or December of 1922 he moved to Dallas. When he left Comanche with his family to come to Dallas in a Model T Ford, about a 1920 model, it liked not to have made it up Chalk Hill, but finally did and we settled in Dallas. We had no furniture and very little else to move. When we got to Dallas, we moved in the same house with Charley Randerson, Mamma's brother, for a few weeks until we could find a house to rent."

"Bob went to work for the Streetcar Company as a Motorman and after a little while he quit and went to work for the City of Dallas where he worked for a little while and quit. He went back to working for the Streetcar Company and quit after a little while, and then went back to work for the City and quit and went back to being a Motorman for the Streetcar Company, quit and went back working for the City. Finally, he got sick one day and called in and told them to let someone meet him and take over his run which was 7th street Line. They failed to do it so he took the streetcar to the end of the 7th Car Line, parked it, got off, left it and walked home. Needless to say, he never worked for the Streetcar Company again, but he did go back and work for the City for 41 years."

Charley Randerson, Mamma's brother, got Bob his first job with the City of Dallas, dragging a tape with the survey crew. When he retired after 41 years, he was Supervisor of the Sanitary Sewer Maintenance Division and the week of his retirement his picture was on every water bill sent out in Dallas. Bob knew where every sewer line was located. His crews knew he could save them a lot of digging just by calling and asking him where a certain line was. Evidently, Bob was never wrong on the location of these lines."

Bob always wore a white western style 10 gallon hat and hardly ever removed it, even while visiting at someone's house. He said he kept it on because he wasn't going to stay long - and he usually didn't.

Notes for VIDA RANDERSON:

From the Compilation of Genealogy Records of Robert Hood Tate by Billie Bailey, January 2001

Vida like many women during that time, raised chickens, churned her own butter and had a big garden from which she fed her family. She did beautiful handwork - tatting, crocheting, quilting, embroidering and making all of their clothes.

Vida worked as a checker in the lunchroom of Oak Cliff High School in 1929 and in 1930. From 1932 - 1936, she was lunchroom manager at the Roger Q. Mills Elementary School.

Several years after moving to Dallas, Vida bought a Singer treadle sewing machine. She was an excellent seamstress and made many matching outfits for her daughter, Carole Sue, and granddaughter, Billie. While Carole Sue was in junior and senior high school, Vida worked at J. C. Penney Company as a saleswoman.
