James Monroe Applegate and Jerusha Stark Applegate

James Monroe Applegate was born "Oct. 31, 1804" in Lee county?, Virginia, probably the son of Hezekiah Applegate and Susan Brittain. James was first married to Sarah Stark on Aug. 3 1824. Sarah apparently had died by 1830 because the 1830 census shows James with only a female age 1-5 years, presumably their daughter.

James remarried to Jerusha Stark on June 6, 1833 Scott county, Indiana. Jerusha was born "Feb. 16, 1816" in Indiana, parents unknown. James worked as a farmer and a Justice of the Peace. In 1850 he was the census taker for his section of the county. This family moved to Pike county, Illinois in the 1850s along with many other Applegates and Starks. James died on "March 5, 1874" Pike county, Illinois. In the 1870s Jerusha and her daughters Susanna and Amanda migrated to Collin county, Texas. Some of the Holfords moved to Texas as well. Jerusha died Feb. 7, 1898 and was buried Altoga cemetery, Collin county, Texas.  [notes]
