General Notes: William McFadden was another Scotch-Irish immigrant and suspected brother to Candor, Edward, Robert, John and Mary McFadden Bigham.

William McFadden's wife, Ann died in 1794 and left a will naming Hannah Long (wife of John Long, Sr.), Ann Graham, Rachel Ayres ( wife of Moses Ayers, Jr.), Elisha McFadden, May McFadden, Jesse McFadden and Rebecca McFadden." Page 208 Captain Bill Book III.

In 1770, William McFadden receives grant of land from King George III for 200 acres on Fishing Creek in old Craven County, now Chester County, South Carolina. William agrees to pay six shillings of rent for a period of two years and also agrees to clear and cultivate at the rate of six acres per year.

In 1775, on February 8th, William and Ann McFadden are visited by Rev. John Simpson, Pastor of the Fishing Creek Presbyterian Church, Chester County, South Carolina. Rev. Simpson's notes show that there was a person named, John McFadden in the household during this visitation. I have been unable to determine what relation John was to William and Ann.

In 1775, William and Ann McFadden of Chester County convey 200 acre tract to George Lewis.

In 1781, William McFadden provides sundries for Militia Use in the Revolutionary War. See SC Department of Archives, "Accounts Audited of Claims Growing out of the Revolution pages 350-359". Also performs 42 days of military service under Captain George Neely. Page 621 Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution by Bobby Gilmer Moss. Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc. 1983.
The 1790 South Carolina Census shows two William McFadden's. One in Orangeburg District and the other in the Camden District, in area that is now Fairfield County. The Church Visitations list of the Rev. Simpson help establish that the William McFadden in Fairfield County had the Revolutionary War Service by showing that the persons to whom he transferred his Revolutionary War Indents were living in the same area. A close reading of the 1790 Census also shows the people listed as purchasing items from William McFadden's estate lived in the Fairfield County District.

In 1790 South Carolina Federal Census for the Camden-Fairfield District, William McFadden is listed as being the head of the household. There is one male over the age of 16 in the household, two males under the age of 16 and four white females in the household.

In 1790, William McFadden dies and in November of that year his wife Anne is appointed as administrator of his estate.

In 1791, William McFadden's estate is appraised.

In 1792, William McFadden's estate is settled by auction sale.

In 1794, On May 31st, William McFadden's widow, Anne makes her will stating that she is very sick and weak.

General Notes: Of Jesse McFadden's siblings I have only found significant information on his sister Rachel. Rachel McFadden Ayers and her husband Moses Ayers, Jr. went to Mississippi in 1840.

Name: MOSES AYRES , Jr.
Sex: M
Birth: 1 MAY 1774 in Halifax, Virginia
Death: 2 SEP 1841 in Choctaw County, Mississippi
Burial: 1841 Hickory Flat, Mississippi

Somewhere along about the first part of the nineteenth century, the Ayers family members began to spell their surname as "Ayres" rather than the traditional "Ayers."

"Letters from Mrs. A. B. Horn, Regent of James Blair Chapter, DAR, Corsicana, Texas: She was searching for these names for a friend, Nov 3, 1942. Moses Ayres married Rachel (McFadde(i)n); they moved from Tennessee and she is buried in Ackerman, Mississippi with her children. Rachel died 3 Sept 1846 and she had a daughter, Selah born (1789) and died 5 Nov (1862), married Obed Childress while living in Tennessee. Their son (Obed-Selah) Obed died 1878 in Arp, Texas. He married Jemima Barron. The mother of Obed (senior) was either a Mrs. Snow or married a Snow after his father died, for he has a half brother, Eli Snow buried where he is buried."

"Note: One Rachel Ayers married Eli Crum in Jefferson County, Alabama, 1827, and Moses Ayers consented to marriage. Deed from Eli Snow and wife Sally to Moses Ayres, Jefferson County, Alabama, 11 Aug 1827, Wit: John Ayers, Allen Ayres. Deed from Moses Ayres and Wife Rachel of Jefferson County, Alabama, to Robert Patterson of Madison County, Alabama, 3 Oct 1827. Celia Childress, wife of Obed Childress relinquished right to dower in certain land in Jefferson County, Alabama in 1837."

"Letter from James Addison Ayres, 790 John Adams Parkway, Idaho Falls, Idaho, 83401, February 15, 1969: I have records showing Moses Ayres was granted 4 tracts of land in the Camden District of Fairfield County, S.C. between 1784-1758. He lived in Tennessee and Mississippi before moving to Jefferson County, Alabama, where he died in 1829 or 1830. His wife was Rachel McFadden. Children: John, b. ca. 1801; Eli, b. Nov 21, 1803; Allen, b. ca. 1809, Rachel; Moses, Jr. Perhaps Selah(or Celia) and several other children - one daughter married a Bibb and they had a son, Eli Bibb. My grandfather, William Eli Ayres was grandson of Moses Ayres. Thomas Eli was father of William Eli Ayres."

BURIAL WITH FAMILY MEMBERS
In a letter from Lucille Vann Cohen dated 26 AUG 1993 to J.P. Childress, she stated that there is documentation to suggest that Moses Ayres died in 1841 and is buried in Hickory Flat, MS, not in Ackerman with the rest of the family. The documentation was a note from a Mrs. West, who wrote: "You notice there is no record of Moses being buried here (Enon Cemetery in Ackerman, Mississippi). I have a copy of a 5 X 8 piece of paper known by a cousin to be the handwriting of her father, who was Judge C. Lee Crum of Hickory Flat, Mississippi, and a grandson of William Allen Crum. He stated that the grandparents of W.A. Crum were Moses and Rachel, that Moses died in 1841 and is buried in Hickory Flat. Perhaps that is why Rachel went back to Ackerman, to live with Selah."

Rachel married Moses Ayers Jr., son of Moses Ayers and Elizabeth Vittito, about 1793 in South Carolina. Moses was born on 1 May 1774 in Halifax, Virginia.

Children from this marriage were:

   12 F    i. Selah "Celia" Ayers was born on 8 Mar 1794 in South Carolina.

   13 M    ii. William Ayers was born in 1796.

   14 M    iii. David B. Ayers was born in 1797 in Fairfield County, South Carolina.

+ 18 M    vii. Thomas Eli Ayers was born on 21 Nov 1803 in Lexington, Kentucky and died in 18906 at age 87.

   19 F    viii. Anna Ayers was born in 1805.

   22 F    xi. Miriah Ayers was born in 1814.

6. Mary McFadden was born in 1779 in South Carolina.

General Notes: In a letter dated June 22, 1866, Mary's husband of 53 years writes of her character: "She was a strict, pious Methodist for thirty years previous to her death. The members of the Baptist Church used to say, she was too good a woman to be a member of the Methodist Church (and) that she ought to quit them and join the Baptist. Her reply was that if she was lucky enough to get to Heaven, she never would be inquired of there what church she belonged to on earth. She was willing to die and she said she was not afraid to die, but was sorry to leave me behind."

Mary married Daniel Ayers. Daniel was born on 16 Dec 1792 and died after 1866 in Tennessee.

General Notes: All these notes taken from Pat Childress Website.


VALIDATION OF FAMILY TREE
Daniel Ayres (or, Ayers, as he spells it) is one of those rare individuals in the 19th century who took the time to document his family history for those of us in the future. He did so in a letter dated June 22, 1866 addressed to his grandnephew, Daniel Ayres, Jr., grandson of Daniel, Sr.'s brother, Jacob. I suppose even more rare is the fact that the letter (although transcribed) survived for nearly 150 years before it arrived at my home via the Internet. Perhaps the letter is made all the more remarkable due to the poignancy with which it was written. Daniel was in his 74th year of life, no mean feat at that time. He had just lost his wife of 53 years earlier in the month, and he speaks eloquently of their time together, while at the same time passing along some valuable genealogical information.

The transcription begins: "This was given by father's uncle from his family records while I was in Knox College." (Signed, Daniel Ayers, Jr.)

"This is to certify that I, Sidney Ayers, the son of J.G. Ayers, residing at Chillicothe, Texas, has made a true and correct copy of the original letter handed me by uncle Daniel Ayers of Los Angeles, California, September 24, 1909, the brother of my own father." (Signed, Sidney Ayers, Fort Worth, Texas, February 24, 1910)

This is a true copy of the original letter that was written Friday, June 22, 1866."

Mr. Daniel Ayers, Junior
My Dear Nephew:

Yours bearing date 22nd May is now before me. I receive it about ten day since, but was sick when I received it. I put it up with several other letters I just received and the other day looking over them found yours which I again reread with pleasure, and now undertake to answer it.

But before I say more, let me tell you that my wife who is your father's aunt, was first afflicted with a cancer wart about the first of June last. Every effort that could be resorted to was done by the most eminent physicians, but all of no purpose. We lived together 53 years, and at 10 minutes before II on the night of Thursday the 14th of June (inst), she was wafted by the angels into Abraham's bossom (sic) where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest. This world was not good enough for her to stay in any longer. She was a strict, pious Methodist for thirty years previous to her death. The members of the Baptist Church used to say she was too good a woman to be a member of the Methodist Church (and) that she ought to quit them and join the Baptist. Her reply was that if she was lucky enough to get to Heaven, she never would be inquired of there what church she belonged to on earth. She was willing to die and she said she was not afraid to die, but was sorry to leave me behind.

I have one son living. I have given him my home, my plantation of about 80 acres of cleared land, orchards, garden and mansion house. I have broken up house keeping entirely. I have taken my effects to Montezema (sic) in McNairy County, Tennessee and there will make my home with my oldest daughter Merene E. Wade, who is a widow and owns a large portion of land adjoining the town of Montezema. About 10 or 12 days before my wife died, I was taken sick and a great portion of that time knew nothing that passed. I was unable to go and see my dear wife buried. You can better guess than I can transcribe the scene. I feel lonely and desolate. I have little or no consolation left, only I always knew death would part us sometime. As Christians we ought to bear it Christian like - Lord help me to do so.

I am weak and feeble; the physician says I have the erysipelus (sic) in the knee, but I think not. I believe that I have only hurt it. I had it lanced and I think it is getting well fast. As soon as I can go to my school in safety, I shall go. I had forgotten to tell you Mrs. Wade live just 12 miles from the place I left.

In answering your inquiry about Andaline Gragg and family I would state that she is now at Duval's Bluff. I am told is employed to oversee a boarding house. Has nothing to do, but see to the table being the right condition, etc., etc. I learned she is getting 25 or 30 dollars per month, but I forgot which. She has some fine land in Prairy (sic) County, Arkansas. Her son Wesley is, I suppose, not far from her working at 40 dollars the month (so $$$ reports say).

Her daughter Tennessee is somewhere there. My daughter Martha Reed is also a widow. She is in Hemsted (sic) County, Arkansas. She is own her own land at home doing well and has six children. My daughter Betsy Caroline Holyfield is also a widow. She is living in Prairy County, Arkansas. The greatest part of her children is married off. I know not how she is doing and making out. My next daughter, Mary Jane Thompson is living in Prairy County, Arkansas. She has bought a tract of land where she lives and also owns a fine and valuable tract of land in Dunklin County, Missouri. Her children are all grown up and scattered. She has been a widow for 10 years. My youngest daughter and the sixth one is now in Ray County, Missouri. She writes to me. She thinks her husband, Wm. G. Fulps, is killed by the Indians, having not heard from him for six months. He was hired to drive a wagon through the Couch (?) Nation. I recon he is dead. If so all my daughters are widows.

Having told all about my daughters, I will now tell you my first and oldest son died at 4 years old. My youngest son and babe died at 20 years, and I think 4 months old. He died in 1858. He was a pious ornament to his sex of his age. He was a fine scholar and teaching a free school at his death. My son Warren Franklin Ayers was captured and sent North and died in Alton the 27th of last March 2 years ago. His wife and 3 children - 2 sons and a daughter - are on the same place he left them, all will soon be grown. Franklin was an honorable, upright man and beloved and respected by all who knew him, and had the confidence of all who knew him. His family is doing well. Your cousin Allen Ayers was at my house about 4 weeks since. He reported that he had 2 sons killed in the army. His brother John was somewhere in Louisiana. Ely Ayers is also in Texas (sick). Thomas M. Bibb, his brother-in-law is also in Texas. Geo. W. Gray that married my sister is dead. She is living with her children. The Grays are all merchants and lawyers. They live in Titus County, Texas and I recon among the most prominent men of the State. But before I close let me tell you that if the trip is not too great, I wish you to go to Helena and cross the river and go and see a Mr. Madison J. Ozment, who married my granddaughter Martha Thompson. I have two other granddaughters there living with Mr. Ozment. He is truly an interesting man. But at first sight you would think him not worth a jackleg knife. But on further acquaintance, you will soon find him to be qualified to represent his country in any assembly. He lives only 4 miles from Helen, near Moon Lake.

After a year or thereabouts, when my mind becomes better composed and (I) wind up my business, I contemplate traveling and seeing all my children and near relations. If I should be spared to live though my dear boy, I see not a thing in this world worth living for. I have long since received your father's letter and wrote him at Marion. I come now to treat the subject of ancestry.

The very name Ayers is of French. Our original ancestors are French. They came to the State of New Jersey at an early date. This I learned from my father over half a century ago. He was no scholar yet an honest and upright man as religion and law called for. All who spell their names Ayers are our relations. This I learned from oldest Brother Moses III. Your father's mother's name was McFadden. Her brothers were Elisha and Jesse. Your grandmother, who was my brother Jacob's wife had a sister Hanna who married John Long, also had a sister married to John Gragg (a poor chance). Your grandmother's sister married Joshua Grymes. Rachel McFadden married my oldest brother Moses. Your grandmother Polly married my brother, Jacob. I give on another piece of paper the ages of my own father's family and grandfather's family. Write me and send to Boliva (sic) Hardeman County, Tennessee.

God bless you. Farewell.
Signed: Daniel Ayers

Daniel then recites the family tree of his immediate family, including his mother, father and brothers and sisters, along with dates of birth and marriages. He also cites the names and birth dates of his father's brothers and sisters, as well as their marriages. All of this data is included in this family tree file. In addition, the parts of this letter that pertain to other family members have been excerpted and entered into their respective note sections.

Interestingly, Daniel makes no mention of the death of his mother and the probable remarriage of his father to a woman whose surname likely was "Keziah." Nor does Daniel make mention of his half-brother, John Thoret Ayres, to whom his father awarded his estate in a will probated upon Moses, Sr.'s death. More than one researcher shows Daniel himself marrying a Polly Keziah (or "Kisiah") born August 14, 1794, after the death of his first wife.


Children from this marriage were:

   23 F    i. Merene Ayers was born in 1814.

8. Jesse McFadden 5 was born in 1782 in Fairfield County, South Carolina and died in 1854 in Laurel County, Kentucky at age 72.

General Notes: Polly McFadden married Edward Norvell Dec. 25, 1825, in Knox County. This Polly McFadden could very well be a daughter of Jesse and Sally Ruth McFadden that we don't have documented. Polly McFadden Norvell may die soon after her marriage since Edward Novell remarries Sarah Jones on December 29, 1831 in Laurel County, Kentucky. They supposedly had one child named "Mary Norvell".

Jesse McFadden is probably buried at Providence Cemetery.

1782. Jesse McFadden is born in Fairfield County, South Carolina.

1790. Jesse McFadden's father dies when Jesse was but 8 years old.

1794. Jesse McFadden's mother dies leaving him now an orphan at the age of 12. According to his mother's will, Jesse McFadden, along with two of his siblings were to be placed in the household of James Blair of Fishing Creek.

1800. Jesse McFadden does not show up as being listed as having his own household but would be approximately 18 years old in 1800. His brother Elisha dies in 1802. There are several persons in James Blair's home at the time of this Census for Fairfield County, South Carolina but no individual names listed.

1805. On June 15th, Jesse McFadden pays taxes in Knox County, Kentucky. He claims one male under age of 21 yet older than 18 lives i his household. Jesse would be about 23 years old here so it's a mystery as to who is living with him.

1807, On April 15th, Jesse McFadden pays taxes in Knox County, Kentucky. Claiming one male over the age of 18 and one horse.

1807. Sally Ruth McFadden's mother re-marries to Chapman Watkins on November 11, 1807. By A. Stewart, Justice of the Peace. This according to Marriage Index Book A of Knox County, Kentucky.

1808 Jesse McFadden pays taxes in Knox County, Kentucky. Claiming one male over the age of 18 and one horse.

The Knox County Marriage Index Book A states that Jesse and Sally Ruth were married by Rev. Jesse Sears.

1809 Jesse McFadden pays taxes in Knox County, Kentucky.

1810, Jesse McFadden appears on the Knox County, Kentucky tax list.

1810, Knox County Kentucky Census shows Jesse McFadden. In the household is one male aged 16 to 26, and one male ages 26 to 45. One female under the age of ten and one female aged 16 to 26. This one younger male could possibly be Thomas Garner or Edward McFadden who migrated from South Carolina to Kentucky with Jesse. The young female under the age of 10 could very well be a girl named Polly that we don't have documented as being a child of Jesse and Sally McFadden.

1811, Jesse McFadden pays taxes in Knox County, Kentucky on one male over the age of 18 and two horses.

1812, Jesse McFadden pays taxes in Knox County, Kentucky on one male over the age of 18 and three horses.

1813. In the Knox County Marriage records there is an Edward McFadden who marries Nancy Williams on June 5, 1813. They are married by B. Hopper. This may be Edward McFadden, Jr. born 1790 in South Carolina and is possibly a cousin to Jesse. I found no further records for Edward McFadden in Kentucky. He may show up in Maury County, Tennessee with is father.

1815. Jesse McFadden pays taxes in Knox County on 100 acres of land lying on Laurel River in Knox County. One person over age of 18 and three horses. Total taxable value is $350.00.

Also in the household are two females under the age of 10, one female between the ages of 16 and 18, and one female between the ages of 26 and 42.
With a total of eight people in the household in 1820 we seem to have possibly missed some children. According to our records now we would have a total of only five. It could be a combination of missing a child or two and having Chapman's birthdate off a year of two. I still think we possibly have some infant deaths in the household.

In this 1820 Census, Jesse and Sally Ruth are living next door to Chapman Watkins. Sally Ruth's mother, Sarah Graham Chesnut married Chapman Watkins in 1807. Also next door to Jesse is Sally Ruth's brother, Edmund Chesnut.

1843. Jesse McFadden pays taxes on 500 acres of land he states lies on the Laurel River watershed. He has four horses or mares and 17 head of cattle. Now he states he has three children in the household between the ages of 7 and 17.

1844. Jesse McFadden pays taxes on 500 acres of land he states lies on the Laurel River watershed. Two horses or mares and seven head of cattle. He says he has three children between the ages of 5 and 16 in the household.

1845. Jesse McFadden pays taxes on 500 acres of land he states lies on the Laurel River watershed. Three horses or mares worth $75.00 and 13 head of cattle. Still with three children in the household between the ages of 5 and 16.

1846. Jesse McFadden pays taxes on 500 acres of land he states lies on the Laurel River watershed. Three horses or mares and 15 head of cattle. Still three children in the household between the ages of 5 and 16.

1847. Jesse McFadden pays taxes on only 400 acres of land in Laurel County, Kentucky.

1848. Jesse McFadden pays taxes on 400 acres of land on "Big Laurel" in Laurel County, Kentucky. Jesse, Chapman and Westerfield have their name spelled "McPhadden" on the tax rolls of this year.

1850, In the Laurel County 1850 Census Jesse McFadden is 68 years old. This Census is interesting since it is here that Jesse states that he was born in South Carolina. In the household is listed as Ruth age 57 who was born in Kentucky. Lydia who is 17, Nancy who is 14 and Betsy who is 11. This is also the Census record I use to establish his date of birth. Film 13B shows Jesse, Ruth, Lydia, Nancy and Betsy living next door to Jesse and Ruth's son, Westerfield McFadden. In the next household after Wes is their son, David along with his wife Elizabeth McFadden.

1850 Laurel County Tax records show that Jesse McFadden is paying tax on 200 acres of land now. His son David is paying taxes on 150 acres and his son Westerfield is paying taxes on 50 acres. Jesse's son Chapman appears on tax list but does not appear to be paying taxes on any property. Westerfield is actually listed as "Westley" on the tax records.

1851. Jesse pays taxes on 300 acres of land on Sandy Creek in Laurel County. Says there are four children in his household between the ages of 5 and 16. The two youngest girls would be in that age bracket but it's a mystery who the other two are. Jesse's son David reports 150 acres on Sandy Creek while Chapman reports 75 acres. Each year it seems that Jesse, David and Chapman appear to pay their taxes together since the entires are always together whereas Jesse's son John is always listed separately. Also when Jesse reports his land being on "Sandy Creek" so do David and Chapman. When the land is reported for Jesse as being on "Laurel" once again so are the tracts for David and Chapman. On this tax list Westerfield McFadden reports having 210 acres.

1852. Jesse McFadden pays taxes on 200 acres of land on Sandy Creek in Laurel County. His son Chapman reports 100. David pays taxes on 150 and Westerfield McFadden pays taxes on 200 acres. All these tracts of the sons also lying on Sandy Creek.

1853. Jesse McFadden pays taxes on 250 acres of land on Sandy Creek in Laurel County. He has two horses or mares, seven head of cattle and 10 hogs. He also lists the total value of all gold, silver or metallic watches and clocks at $5.00. David lists 320 acres on Sandy Creek while Chapman lists 90 acres and Westerfield reports owning 140 acres on Sandy Creek. Jesse again lists two children between the ages of six and eighteen years old.

1854. The Laurel County tax records show David McFadden paying taxes on 300 acres on Sandy Creek, Chapman having 100 acres, and Westerfield McFadden having 140 acres. This is the first year that Ruth McFadden is listed in the tax records for Laurel County, Kentucky.

In 1854, Jesse McFadden's wife Ruth McFadden pays taxes on 250 acres of land while there is no entry in the tax rolls for her husband Jesse McFadden. Ruth McFadden received a life estate in Jesse's property through Jesse McFadden's will. Ruth McFadden lists no white males in the household over the age of 21. She says she has four horses or mares with a value of $150.00, a total of $5.00 in gold and silver, eleven head of cattle and ten hogs. Ruth further reports that there is one child in the household under the age of eighteen which would have been Elizabeth "Betsy" McFadden. Jesse and Ruth McFadden's daughter Lydia marries Joseph W. Jones in February of 1854 and Nancy marries Darling Jones in November of 1854.

1854, In the Laurel County Will Book Number 4 Page 27 Jesse McFadden's Will is recorded. He makes his last codicil on the 8th day of October, 1853. This will is probated In the 1854 Term of the Laurel County Court, Laurel County, Kentucky. Various researchers list the date of Jesse McFadden's death as March 23, 1854. That date appears to be an error associated with the fact that a grandson to Jesse and Ruth McFadden also named Jesse McFadden died on March 23, 1954.

Thomas Garner is a Revolutionary War Veteran living in Knox County at the same time Jesse is, along with an Edward McFadden. Do Thomas, Edward and Jesse all three migrate from Fairfield County, SC to Knox County, KY together?

Jesse McFadden should have gone to James Blair's home upon the death of his mother per her will. James Blair would have raised Jesse McFadden from the age of 12 until he leaves for Kentucky between the ages of 18 and 20. What follows are notes concerning James Blair and his arrival in the United States.

James was a Revolutionary War Hero who was born in Ireland and came to America in Dec. 1772 with his brother Brice. They set sail from Ballymoney in a fleet chartered by William Martin, a Presbyterian Minister who set up five ships. The ship's name was Lord Dunluce, and they landed in Charleston SC originally.

James Blair received a warrant for 230 acres when he arrived on the Lord Dunlace, as reported by South Carolina's Council Journal meeting of Jan. 6, 1773. The 250 acre warrant for James was "situated in Craven County on the drafts of Fishing Creek.

Neighbors to James Blair.
SE and NE was bounded by Robert McFaddens land. SE by James Ferguson's land, SW by Thomas Martin's land and SW by William McFadden's land. James's will was probated in 1796, and the land was passed on to his sons William and James Blair Jr. By then, the land had grown to 374 acres in 1816, when James Jr. sold the land and went to Tennessee?

"The James Blair family lived in South Carolina. This was the generation of the Revolution. We do not know what his services were. It is probable, but not yet proved, that he was the James Blair referred to in the following:"

King's Mountain and its Heroes: History of the Battle of King's Mountain, Oct. 7, 1780. (There are two references to a James Blair).

"On Friday, the 29th, the patriot army pursued its way up the valley of Grass Creek to its head, some eight or nine miles, when they passed through Gillespie's Gap in the Blue Ridge; emerging from which they joyfully beheld here and there in the distance in the mountain coves and on the valleys of the head of the upper Cataqba (Catawba?) they advanced settlements of adventurous pioneers. At this point, Col. McDowell rejoined his over mountain friends, imparting to them such vague and uncertain intelligence as he was able to learn from Ferguson's movements. Co. McDowell had repaired to his Quaker Meadow home and sent messengers in ever direction to arouse the people; he had dispatched James Blair, as an express, to hasten forward Col. Cleveland with the men of Wilkes and Surry. Blair reached Ft. Defiance, a distance of some 30 miles, where he probably met Cleveland and his men advancing; but he did not accomplish his means without imperiling his life for he was wounded by a stealthy Tory on the way.

In County Down Ireland, James Blair's family was part of the congregation of Rev. William Martin, called the "seceders" they were a splinter Presbyterian group. In 1772, Reverend Martin received a "call" to South Carolina; about one thousand seceders, five shiploads, went with him. James Blair's ship was the Lord Dunluce, which left Larne Ulster, 4 Oct. 1772 and it arrived at Charleston, South Carolina on 2 Dec. 1772, after sailing against contrary winds. The land in America was to cost five pounds, and the acreage was determined by family size. If the immigrant had no money the land was free. Since, these were Scotsman and thrifty with their money, the book says not too many of them could come up with the five pounds. This was a large group, and as such they were scattered around the Abbeville district of South Carolina. James was given 230 acres on the shores of Fishing Creek near Rev. Martin in Craven County, later Chester
County.

James assisted in establishing American Independence during the War of the Revolution while acting in the capacity of
Cavalryman and Infantryman in the troops in South Carolina, 193 days, from June 1780 to 1782. In April 1785, he
received one shilling sterling for hire of wagon, team driver, 62 days in Military Use during 1778-79.

Jesse married Sally Ruth Chesnut, daughter of William Gordon Chestnut and Sarah Graham, on 10 Nov 1808 in Knox County, Kentucky. Sally was born in 1792 in Washington County, Kentucky7 and died after 1863 in Laurel County, Kentucky.8

General Notes: Sally Chesnut was the daughter of William G. Chesnut & Sarah Graham. Her grandfather was John Chesnut who served in the Revolutionary War in Captain Hopkin's Company from Augusta County, Virginia.

Note: I'm not sure Jane belongs in the list of Edmund's brothers and sisters. I'm still researching that. She was a real person, but she may be the daughter of a different Thomas Moore. She is not mentioned in the settlement of Thomas Moore's estate.

Note: I'm not sure what the correct spelling is for Edmund (with a "u" or an "o"). His tombstone has "Edmund". All records show it as "Edmond", but these were written by other people. He always signed his name "E. D. Moore", so that doesn't help. Generally, I go by what is on the tombstone, so I'll probably go back and change the spelling in all my documents one of these days. He had two grandsons named for him. Both their names are spelled Edmond.

Note: Jarves did normally spell his name with an "e" instead of an "i". We have his signature and a picture of his tombstone. The one exception I've found is the letter in 1863 concerning his father's death. In it, he signed his name "Jarvis" and spelled Edmund's name "Edmond". He may be in the 1860 Laurel Co. census as a farm laborer in the household of Ashariah Moore. He is in the 1870 Laurel Co. census living next door to his mother with his wife Ollie and son Thomas. By December 1872 he is a single man. Both his wife and son may have died between 1870 and December 1872. The next time I found Jarves in the census records was 1910 in Laurel Co., KY. I haven't found any evidence of any other children. His death certificate adds to the confusion, because it lists his parents as Thomas Moore and Rebecca Spurlock.

Note: Suphrona is the correct spelling for her name. We have both her signature and her tombstone to go by. I have notes that say she was born in Whitley County, but no supporting evidence. Her parents were Pascal (spelling varies) G. and Margaret Bryant. She was living in Whitley County when Edmund and Suphrona were married. Pascal G. Bryant is in the 1840 and 1850 Knox County Census. He enlisted for the Union in Company I, 7th Infantry Regiment Kentucky on 05 SEP 1861. He died on 19 JUN 1863 in Memphis, TN. He was born about 1820 - 1821 in Kentucky. It has been passed down in the family that she was a second cousin to William Cullen Bryant, but I haven't been able to trace that.

Note: There is a reasonable chance that Thomas Moore is the son of Jesse Moore who migrated to Knox Co. KY from South Carolina shortly after 1800 with his father Thomas Moore, but that connection isn't proven. There are far too many Thomas Moores for me to sort this out yet. Several of them are first cousins. Others are probably not related at all.

His wife Theny is also 41 and in the household is Sarah P. age 17, Jesse M. age 15, John F., age 10, Pleasant Y., age 10, David M. age 8, Theny age 6, Jarvis age 3, Elizabeth age 6 months.

1861, On November 1, 1861, at age 42, John McFadden enlists as a Sergeant in Lexington, Kentucky. Enlisted in Company H of the 24th Kentucky Infantry for the Union Army upon it's organization on December 31, 1861. On the same day John McFadden's 17 year old son Jesse also enlisted in the same unit. The 24th Regiment Kentucky Infantry was mustered out of service on January 31, 1865. John and Jesse receive their military training at Camp Dick Robinson in Garrard County, Kentucky. From there they march to Louisville, Kentucky and other locations around Kentucky and Tennessee.

"The Medical and Surgical History of the War of the Rebellion", Washington, Government Printing Office, 1870-1888 states that of the nearly 620,000 soldiers who died during the Civil War, a full two-thirds died not by bullets and bayonets but of disease. Childhood diseases such as measles could devastate entire regiments and many men succumbed not only to disease but also to diarrhea and dysentery due to overcrowded and unsanitary conditions in the field. Early in the war it became obvious that disease would be the greatest killer. Soldiers from small rural areas such as Laurel County suffered from childhood diseases such as measles and mumps because they lacked immunity. John McFadden's brother David was one of these such casualties, dying just a week before John and Jesse McFadden enlist. David left a young widow, Elizabeth, several small children and an unborn child. Of over one million enlistments of soldiers in the Civil War only 16,000 of them were as old as John McFadden.

While in the line of duty between Nashville and Shiloh, Tennessee in April 1862 John McFadden suffers from chronic diarrhea. From his pension file in National Archives it appears that he suffered the effects of this for the remainder of his life.

It will be interesting here to find that while the Kentucky McFadden's were enlisting in the Union Army their cousins in South Carolina were joining the Confederacy. One can only guess what prompted John and his son to leave their farm and family behind to volunteer. John's wife Theny was five months pregnant with their daughter Ruth Ann. The man of the house became John Franklin McFadden who was only 11 years old. Kentucky Adjutant General's Report shows John McFadden deserted on June 30, 1863, voluntarily returning on November 2, 1864. Awaiting trial in Lexington. Upon investigation the charges are dismissed as John McFadden had been in care of Doctor Foster of London, Kentucky during that time period.

Mr. Reuben Langford of Shopville, Pulaski County, Kentucky states in John McFadden's pension application that, "I was with him all the time for I was his 1st Lieutenant and about the 20th April, 1862 we lost Captain Jones and I was placed in command of the Company and in September 1864 I was made Captain and remained in command of the company 'til discharge." Mr. Langford further stated, "I worked frequently with him and know that before enlistment he was a stout and able bodied man and I thought he done more hard work than any man in our neighborhood."

John is reinstated at the rank of sergeant and honorably discharged. John McFadden's Civil War Pension file is Claim Number 471690. His widow Theny receives a pension after his death. Her Claim Number is 403588.

1862. Theny McFadden pays the taxes on 1766 acres of land on Sinking Creek. John seems to have been serving with Company H at this time.

1863. John McFadden pays the taxes on a 950 tract of land on Sinking Creek and 750 acres of land on Dog Branch.

1870, In the 1870 Laurel County Census John McFadden is 51 years old and states his occupation as a farmer. His wife Theny is also 51 and states that she keeps house. In the household is John F. McFadden, age 22, Pleasant McFadden age 20, David McFadden age 18, Thena McFadden age 16, Jarvis J. McFadden age 13, Elizabeth McFaddin age 11 and Rutha Ann McFadden age 8. This census visit was on August 3, 1870.

1880, In the 1880 Federal Census for Laurel County, Kentucky John McFadden, Sr. is 61 years old and living with his wife Thena who is also 61. Their son Jarvis J. is 22 years old and living with them as is an 18 year old daughter in law named Emily. Also shown in this household is Jesse McDannett listed as being 16 years old and is a "boarder" in John's household.

1883. Pension application for John McFadden states that he is 64 years old, five feet nine inches tall, light complexion, black hair and blue eyes.

1890. In October, a medical examination shows John McFadden at age 71 appearing very weak and feeble in addition to becoming a bit senile.

1893, April 14, the Mountain Echo reports that, "Uncle John McFadden is very low and his recovery is believed to be doubtful".

1894, John McFadden applies for an increase in his Civil War Pension on May 10, just three days prior to his death on the afternoon of May 13th.

Minnie Parkey, a great grand daughter of John & Theny McFadden tells an account of the McFadden Family History in Nancy Hale's book. Minnie relates that, "The legend is that the house in which John and Berthany McFadden lived was haunted. The story is that John cursed a ghost and wherever they moved it followed them. There was a horseless carriage which would come down the hill and stop in front of the house. Also strange and eerie noises would be heard. Minnie says that her mother, Martha Ann McFadden and her cousin, Nellie McFadden, spent the night with their grandparents and during the night they heard a loud noise in the room above them as though something heavy had fallen to the floor. The next morning they went upstairs and searched but, of course, nothing was found. From Nancy Hale book.

A once acre tract has been set aside by the U. S. Forest Service for the McFadden Cemetery. There are 13 graves located here with the last decoration occuring in 1924.

The Moutain Echo reported; October 20, 1904 Abel: "We will say that the death angel visited the home of Mr. John Broughton, Thursday night at nine o'clock and took away their little son, Willie. The little body was laid in the McFadden grave yard. Need some research to identify who this child is.

Noted events in his life were:

• Residence: Dog Branch.

Young and Permelia Jane Smith, on 20 Aug 1841 in Laurel County at her fathers' house, Theny was the.10 Bartheny was born on 9 Mar 1819 in Knox County, Kentucky, died on 21 Mar 1917 in Laurel County, Kentucky18 at age 98, and was buried on 23 Mar 1917 in Young Cemetery, Long Branch, Laurel County, Kentucky.19

wife Susan Elizabeth Parker who migrated to Laurel County, Kentucky from Greenville, South Carolina in 1812. See "Reverend John Frankling Young 1760-1850 London, Kentucky 1972.

1894, May 19 at McWhorter in Laurel County, Kentucky, Pleasant Young, Sr. states in Theny's pension application that he is 69 years old and is a brother to Theny. Pleasant states that he was present and knows that John McFadden and Theny Young were married on August 20th, 1841 at the bride's father, Pleasant Young's, house in the County of Laurel and State of Kentucky by David Weaver (now deceased). Mr. Young states that he knows that neither John McFadden nor Theny Young had ever been married until they were married to each other. Mr. Young also states that Theny McFadden has never remarried that she still remains the widow of John McFadden.

1899, May 12 edition of the Mountain Echo reports that, "Aunt Theny McFadden, of the western portion of the county, now in her eightieth year, is visiting relatives in London and vicinity. Mrs. McFadden is very active indeed for a woman of her age, and bids fair for several more years of active life."

1908, April 24. Nancy E. Hale has compiled a letter written from Theny McFadden to her daughter Ruth Ann McFadden Bryant. The text of which is as follows:

"Mrs. Ann Bryant
Stroud, Oklahoma

Dear Daughter,

I was not satisfied with the answer I wrote you about the covenant made to Abraham. I was afraid you couldn't read my writing well enough to understand what I meant. The covenant made to Abraham was a sure one. His people had a sure promise that they should be saved, that they should sojourn in a strange land. The covenant was to Abraham and his seed - not unto seeds. It as a promise that was fulfilled. You read your Bible and you will find but more about the covenant. It was a sure one and all Israel was saved. They were a people to be remembered forever. We can read of their troubles while they journeyed on. They lived in a dark age, under types and shadows, till the time appointed for their deliverance. I will tell you when the seven thunders uttered their voices John was about to write. He heard not to write till the twelve tribes of Israel were sealed. There was a hundred and forty and four thousand. We are sure that the first covenant was not broken and I am sure that the lat one will not be. Our case is a dangerous one. We have the promise to come if we will, and whosoever will let hiim come and take of the water of life freely, and shall we love darkness rather than light. To be carnal minded is death and to be spiritual minded is life. We should shun every appearance of evil. I know when a woman is raising a family they can't live as they wish to. The trouble of a family is trouble we can't pass away. Those that bear children shall have trouble in the flesh. I know that all people can be saved if they will repent. It is written that we must work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. The time is here that people will not endure sound doctrine. You should leave off worldly thoughts and put your trust in the one that is able to save you from sin and death. This world will pass away, for it shall be as it was in the days of Noah. Ann, I thought I would have this printed so you could read for yourself. So, I remain your loving mother till death. Be kind to Abel and the children, for I love them all if I never see them any more.

Nancy's tombstone says she was born on February 29, 1843. There was no 29th in 1843 so I changed date back one day. Someone at bootswan@hotpop.com has added a PostEm on the internet saying her actual birthdate is February 29, 1852 and further says that Nancy Young was her gg grandmother.

Who was Nancy? Was she married prior to her marriage to Wes? The Laurel County School Census lists Phobe's last name as Young in 1895. Was Phobe not a daughter of Wes but actually a step-daughter?

36. David McFadden was born in 1828 in Laurel County, Kentucky, died on 23 Oct 1861 in Camp Wildcat, Laurel County, Kentucky at age 33, and was buried in Camp Nelson National Cemetery, Kentucky Section F.

General Notes: David and Elizabeth appear to have a child die on October 14, 1857 per the Death Records for Laurel County, Kentucky. Seems to say a male child named, "Harry Age 3" dies of the flux. Someone else may take a closer look at this record and determine the exact name of the infant.

David died from measles while serving in the Union Army as a private in Company C 6th Regiment of Kentucky Infantry at Camp Wildcat, Laurel County, Kentucky. Pension Certificate Number 15158. His widow, Elizabeth, applies for an increase in Pension benefits on October 1, 1866. At this time she was receiving $8.00 per month. He enlisted on August 10, 1861 in London, KY for a period of 5 years. Death certified by Captain McNeil.

1890 Veterans Schedule for Laurel County shows him dying of "Typhoid Fever".

David married Elizabeth Brock, daughter of George Brock and Nancy Durham, on 28 May 1850 in Laurel County, Kentucky.40 Elizabeth was born on 4 Apr 1834 in Laurel County, Kentucky,41 died on 9 Dec 1906 in Laurel County, Kentucky11 at age 72, and was buried in McFadden Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

General Notes: Look at marriage license for exact birthdate on Elizabeth. Some confusion here.

Elizabeth's Will probated in 1907 leaves farm and personal property to her son William and her daughter Martha Ann McFadden. It appears William and Martha Ann were residing with their mother Elizabeth at the time of her making this will. The other daughters were all married with the exception of Nancy Jane Williams who was deceased at the time the will was written. She leaves these other children $1.00 also leaving $1.00 to Nancy J. Williams "now deceased".

37. Lydia McFadden was born in 1830 in Laurel County, Kentucky, died in 1865 in Laurel County, Kentucky at age 35, and was buried in Providence Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.11

General Notes: Lydia dies approximately 9 years after her father Jesse and within a few years before or after her mother Ruth McFadden. Is it possible that Jesse and Ruth McFadden are buried at Providence Cemetery with their daughter Lydia?

Lydia married Joseph W. Jones, son of Even Jones and Mary Weaver, on 21 Feb 1854 in Laurel County, Kentucky.45 Joseph was born on 1 Apr 1823 in North Carolina,20 died on 3 May 1902 in Kentucky at age 79, and was buried in Mt. Salem Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

OBITUARY
On the 22nd day of March, 1922, the Death Angel came and took from our loving embraces our mother
and sister, Nancy Jones, the wife of the late Darlin Jones She leaves six children and a host of friends
to mourn her death, while the husband and three children have gone on before. She joined the United
Baptist Church in her girlhood days, and lived a faithful member until her death. She was 94 years old.
Sleep on death mother and take your rest, God called you home he thought it best. Written by a daughter.

Nancy married Darling Jones, son of Robin Jones 20 and Sally McCarty, on 23 Nov 1854 in Laurel County, Kentucky.34 Darling was born on 10 Mar 1835 in Laurel County, Kentucky,11 died on 4 Sep 189111 at age 56, and was buried in Pine Hill Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.11

General Notes: On July 20, 1860 Darling Jones and his wife Nancy are enumerated in the Clay County, Kentucky Census as apparently living in Manchester, Kentucky. He gives his occupation as a farmer and states that he and his wife Nancy were both born in Laurel County. He states he is 26 years of age and Nancy is 24. Their children are America, age four born in Clay County, Angeline age two born in Clay County and another daughter born that year possibly named, "Sally Ann". I can't make out the exact name. It's on page 147 of the 1860 Clay County, Kentucky Census.

Per Shirley Martin Chandler: "Darling was in the 7th KY Infantry. Darling Jones was enrolled on the 19th day of August, 1861 at London, KY in Co. "C", 7th Regt. of Ky. Infantry Volunteers to serve three years..mustered into service as a private on the 22nd day of September, 1861 at Camp Dick Robinson. Witnessed by Melville Phelps and Jas. I. Weaver, 9 June 1879 (Pension Application). Honorably discharged on October 5, 1864. Personal description 29 years, 5'10" 1/2, dark complexion, dark hair, dark eyes. He was ill all through his service which included Cumberland Ford, KY, Vicksburg, MS, Laurel Co., Helena AR, St. Louis, Memphis and Benton Barracks near St. Louis. In 1879 he was 45, living in Clay County, a farmer."


Children from this marriage were:

   120 M    i. George W. Jones was buried in Pine Hill Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

George married Rosmand Cornett.46 Rosmand was buried in Pine Hill Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

   121 M    ii. John F. Jones was buried in Pine Hill Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

John married Telitha Doan.46 Telitha was buried in Pine Hill Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

   122 F    iii. Mary Jones .

   125 F    vi. Angeline Jones 47 was born in 1858.

   126 F    vii. Margaret Jones was born in 1860.46

   127 F    viii. Sally Ann Jones 47 was born in 1860.

General Notes: Change Sally's name when I determine exactly what it is. A reading of the 1860 Clay County Census is questionable as to her exact name.

   128 M    ix. Cyrenus W. Jones was born on 22 May 187746 and was buried in Pine Hill Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

39. Elizabeth "Betsy" McFadden was born in 1839 in Laurel County, Kentucky and died after 1880.13

Elizabeth married John H. George,48 son of Ansel George and Sarah Carter, on 9 Feb 1859 in Laurel County, Kentucky.34 John was born in 1833 in Yancey County, North Carolina7 and died after 1880.13

General Notes: In the 1860 Laurel County Kentucky Census John George, age 27 is living with his wife Elizabeth, age 22. Also in the household is Elizabeth's mother Sally Ruth McFadden and Woodfin George, age 7 who was born in North Carolina and Martha G. George age 5 who was also born in North Carolina.

These children possibly from a previous marriage of John A. George.

Between 1857 and the February 1859 marriage of John A. George to Elizabeth McFadden it appears that Ansel George, his wife Sarah and their twelve children, including John A. George, migrated from Yancey County, North Carolina to Laurel County, Kentucky. In addition it appears that two grandchildren as listed above also migrated with them. Ansel's two oldest children may not have migrated to Laurel County.

1868. Between the births of Mollie and Mary Ellen it seems that John and Elizabeth McFadden George migrated from London, Laurel County, Kentucky to Prairie County, Arkansas.

1870 Arkansas Census. Town: Prairie County: Madison State: Arkansas Microfilm Roll M593_58 Page 421. Image 361. Post Office is Hindsville. In this census entry there is a John George who states he was born in North Carolina. Also in the household is Elizabeth, age 29 who was born in Kentucky. Children Nancy J., age 9, Alabama, age 5, William, age 4 and Mary age 1 are all in the household and are listed as having been born in Kentucky.

1880 Arkansas Census. Town: Prairie County: Madison State: Arkansas. Microfilm Roll T9-50 Family History Film 1254050 Page 582 D Enumatation District 106 Image 0889.

In this 1880 census entry there is a John H. George who states he is 49 years old is a farmer. He and both of his parents were born in North Carolina. His wife Elizabeth is 35 years old and keeps house. She states she was born in Kentucky. Her father was born in South Carolina and her mother was born in Kentucky. Their children are listed as follows; Alabama George, age 18, born in Kentucky, James W. George, age 15, born in Kentucky, who could have been listed as William in the 1870 Census, Mollie, age 13, born in Kentucky, who also did not show up in the 1870 Census, Ellen age 11, Jarrett(?) age 7, Lee age 4, and a two year old son named Glen(?)

I think a couple of things are significant here. One is that John lists his name clearly as John H. George where I have his middle initial as being A. The most important thing is that Elizabeth lists her father as being born in South Carolina.

Some members of the George family state that John and Elizabeth's sons, at least Lee, migrated to Oklahoma.


Children from this marriage were:

   129 F    i. Nancy J. George was born in 1860 in Kentucky.49

   130 F    ii. Alabama George was born in 1862 in Kentucky.13

   131 M    iii. James William George was born in 1865 in Kentucky.13

   132 F    iv. Mollie George was born in 1867 in Kentucky.13

   133 F    v. Mary Ellen George was born in 1869 in Arkansas.13

   134 M    vi. John Garrett George was born in 1873 in Arkansas13 and died in 1925 at age 52.

   135 M    vii. Bert George was born in 1877 and died in 1940 at age 63.

   136 M    viii. Lee George was born in 1877 in Arkansas13 and died in 1934 at age 57.

General Notes: This information on Lee George is not documented at all. I obtained it from a posting on Roots Web and can't locate the author of the post. I have only entered this information here to give me a clue as to where John A. and Elizabeth McFadden migrate to. It appears they left Laurel County, Kentucky and moved to Arkansas before moving again to Oklahoma.

   137 M    ix. G George was born in 1878 in Arkansas.13

General Notes: Can not decipher spelling of name on 1880 Arkansas Census.

60. Edmund David Moore was born on 15 Mar 1833 in Laurel County, Kentucky, died on 16 Jun 1877 in Sumner County, Kansas at age 44, and was buried in Porter Cemetery, London Township, Sumner County, Kansas.

General Notes: The following information provided by Sharon B. Moore

Edmund Moore Homestead in Sumner County Kansas

Sumner County is in south central Kansas on the Oklahoma border directly south of Wichita. The Moore homestead was in the northeast corner of the county. It was located 3 ½ miles west of Belle Plaine, Kansas in Belle Plaine Township. The description is the "southwest quarter of section twenty-nine (29) in township thirty (30)". The western edge of this quarter borders London Township.

On December 31, 1872 Jarves F. Moore secured a mortgage against this land. On December 30, 1873 Edmund D. Moore and Suphrona L. Moore secured a mortgage against it. Jarves apparently did not stay in Kansas after this time.

William Young Moore was born to Edmund and Suphrona in London Kentucky on July 13, 1871. They moved to Kansas in a covered wagon. They apparently made a trip back to Kentucky in the winter of 1874 -1875 because James Walker Moore was born in Missouri on a covered wagon trip from Kentucky to Kansas on March 14, 1875. Martha Jane Moore was born in Sumner County Kansas on May 22, 1877.

The Ninnescah River (name means clear water) runs through this property. Edmund was a good swimmer. It was his habit to go for a swim when he came in from working in the fields at the end of the day. This area is sandy. The river has treacherous undertows which change often because of the sand. Edmund drowned in the Ninnescah River on June 16, 1877. The following was reported in the Wellington Sumner County Democrat (weekly newspaper) June 20, 1877. "Mr. Edmond David Moore was accidentally drowned while testing depth of water in Ninnescah River last Friday. The river had flooded. Citizens were making a study for need of bridges instead of fording the river. Some areas were cut off when river flooded." Edmund is buried in the Porter Cemetery, London Township Sumner County Kansas.

Suphrona married John Wesley Simpson February 21, 1880. The land remained the property of Suphrona and her children. On April 6, 1880 she sold the east 80 acres of the homestead to pay debts. John Wesley and Suphrona Simpson participated in the Oklahoma land run and homesteaded in Logan County Oklahoma near Crescent. Her sons Will and Jim stayed on the home place in Sumner County Kansas and rented the remaining 80 acres from her for the price of taxes. In August 8, 1895 Will and Jim bought back the east 80 acres of the homestead.

On December 24, 1895 William Young Moore married Mary Margaret Robins in Crescent Oklahoma. They made their home on the Sumner County homestead with Jim Moore.

On January 24, 1900 John Wesley Simpson died. He is buried in the Oakland Knowles Cemetery in Logan County Oklahoma. On January 17, 1901 Martha Jane Moore Robison died in Crescent Oklahoma when her son Raymond Robison was one month old. She is buried in Porter Cemetery, London Township Sumner County Kansas. Jim went to Oklahoma and brought Suphrona and Ray home to Kansas. They built a small house about a quarter of a mile south of the main house where Suphrona raised her grandson Ray Robison.

On September 19, 1902 Will and Mary sold their half interest in the Sumner County homestead to Jim. They bought land in Cowley County Kansas where they lived until June 1945 when the retired to Udall Kansas.

James Walker Moore married Oda Lucille Butler on February 18, 1906.

Suphrona died June 7, 1919. She is buried in the Porter Cemetery in London Township, Sumner County Kansas.

Suphrona was 29 years old when her first child was born. She had four children of her own, raised four step children, one grandson and one foster daughter, Bell Dumken.

Edmund married Sophronia L. Bryant, daughter of Pascal Bryant and Margaret, on 28 Nov 1866 in Laurel County, Kentucky.15 Sophronia was born on 12 May 1842 in Knox or Whitley County, Kentucky, died in 1919 at age 77, and was buried in Porter Cemetery, London Township, Sumner County, Kansas.

General Notes: Look to see if Jarves and Ollie Norville Moore had a second child named Lucy A. Moore Born 12-21-1863 and died 7-05-1865. This child is buried beside Eliza Norville who is the daughter of Edward and Sarah Norville. Beside her are T. Walker Moore, his mother, Ollie Norville Moore and his father, Jarves Moore. Probably 12 unmarked graves in this section at Rough Creek.

General Notes: Sarah Patience McFadden lives next door to her mother and father, John and Theny McFadden in the 1870 Laurel County, Kentucky Census with her second husband, Calvin Whitt.

Sarah Patience Whitt lives in Stanford, Lincoln County, Kentucky in 1900.

After 1900 Sarah moves with her family to Oklahoma. Her second husband, Calvin Whitt, had died in 1903.

Sarah Patience Whitt lives in Lincoln County, Oklahoma in 1910. She is widowed. Living next door is her son, Lewis Whitt and his family.

They are Lena Adams, 43 years old and widowed along with Claude a son, 26 and a daughter Anna 2, a son Raymond, 17, and a son Johnnie, 15)

Between 1900 and 1910 three of John and Theny McFadden's ten children migrate with their own families to the State of Oklahoma. These three children were Sarah Patience McFadden Whitt, Jarvis Jackson McFadden and Ruth McFadden Bryant. They seem to settle in Central Oklahoma around the time that Oklahoma receives statehood in 1907. This section of Oklahoma was part of the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1897. All research on these three McFadden children must begin in Oklahoma just prior to 1910.

Sarah married George W. Ball on 22 Oct 1863 in Laurel County, Kentucky.15 George died between 1863 and 1868 in Laurel County, Kentucky and was buried in Johnnie "Mac" McFadden Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

Owned and operated a drug store in London, Kentucky.

On February 7, 1879 the Mountain Echo reported that, "J. C. McFadden and Dr. H. S. Pitman have dissolved partnership in the London Drug Store."

On December 17, 1880 the Mountain Echo reported that "Mr. J. C. McFadden, ex-Sheriff of this county after an absence of several months in Texas, returned home last Wednesday. Jesse looks well and we hope he feels the same way." This may explain why Jesse does not show up in the Laurel County Kentucky 1880 Census.

On March 25, 1881 the Mountain Echo reported that J. C. McFadden was serving on the Laurel County Grand Jury.

On January 30, 1880 the Mountain Echo reported that, "New Firm: William Lovelace, Jr. and Mr. John Wren have bought out the Drug Store of McFadden and Durham and ask the public to extend to them a share of patronage, and say they will give the best rates possible."

In 1920 Laurel County, Kentucky Census Jesse is living alone at 75 years of age in the Rockhouse precinct.

Speaks and Mary Polly Haynes, on 3 Jan 1867 in Laurel County, Kentucky.28 Elizabeth was born on 7 Oct 1848 in Laurel County, Kentucky,11 died on 25 Oct 1913 in Laurel County, Kentucky11 at age 65, and was buried in Tanner Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

She had been confined to her bed about two weeks, and bore her suffering with such patience as none but Christians can. She frequently expressed a desire to me during her illness to get well, to do some good in trying to bring others nearer the cross, but said if it was the Lord's will for her to go, she was ready. She said there was nothing in her way. Thenie was a pure, sweet girl, loved by all who knew her. She had been a member of the M. E. Church several years and was a devoted member and Christian. She died in full triumph of a living faith. She said she would meet her dear brother, who preceeded her only a few weeks, and there they would sing praises around the great throne forever more. She so earnestly pleaded with her father and left the request for her absent brother to heed her dying testimony, and turn from the ways of the wicked and prepare to meet her in a better world. We are sad, but sorrow not, as those who have no hope, for we know our loss is her eternal gain, and today she is singing praises to a great redeemer around the great white throne in heaven.

94. Abraham McFadden was born on 28 May 1850 in Laurel County, Kentucky,32 died on 3 Aug 1923 in Laurel County, Kentucky11 at age 73, and was buried in Rough Creek Cemetery, London, Laurel County, Kentucky.

General Notes: In 1860 Laurel County, Kentucky Census Abraham shows up in his father Westerfield's home as a 9 year old son.

In 1870 Laurel County, Kentucky Census Abraham shows up in his father Westerfield's home as a 19 year old son.

In 1874 Abraham and America get married in Laurel County, Kentucky.

Abt. 1875 a daughter Mary Alice McFadden is born to Abraham and America.

In 1877 James "Bud" McFadden is born to Abraham and America.

Abt 1879 a son George is born to Abraham and America.

Need to also remember that James "Bud" McFadden's middle initial is "G" and this child could have actually been George leaving one child unaccounted for.

In 1880 Laurel County, Kentucky Census Abraham does not appear. Should have been approximately 30 years old here.

In 1880 Clay County, Kentucky Census Abraham and family also does not appear.

In 1880 Leslie County, Kentucky Census Abraham and family does appear. Abraham is 29 years of age and is farming and working at a mill, America is 24 years of age and is keeping house. There are two children in the household, Mary Alice, a five year old daughter and George a one year old son.

No 1890 Census is available.

The May 30, 1890 Mountain Echo reported that, "Mr. A. H. McFadden formerly of this county but who has been living on Big Creek, in Clay County for several years recently sold out there and moved back to Laurel County having purchased his father's old farm." (It appears Abraham was actually moving back from Big Creek in Leslie County as opposed to Clay County per the 1880 Census.)

In 1900 Laurel County, Kentucky Census Abraham and America are living by themselves in the Bush Precinct. She states she has given birth to three children and they are all still living. Abraham says he is 50 years of age and America states that she is 47. They give their respective birthdates as October 1849 and May 1853 which differs from their grave markers. In this household is Charley McNue(?) who is 18 years old and is listed as a boarder.

In 1910 Laurel County, Kentucky Census James G. "Bud" McFadden is living with his parents, Abraham H. McFadden and America. By this time Abraham would have been 60 years of age and his wife America 57 years old. Remember that in the 1900 Census Abraham and America are living by themselves. By 1910 their son "Bud" is living with them along with these three grandchildren. More than likely these young children are "Bud's". These grandchildren are James G. McFadden, (who I assume must be Garfield) age 6; Abe McFadden, age 5; and America McFadden age 3.

In 1920 Laurel County, Kentucky Census the following grandchildren are living with Abraham. Garfield age 16, Abe age 14, America age 12 and Caleb age 7. Abraham's wife America died the year before in 1919. A new grandchild has been added to the household with Caleb since the 1910 Census. Abraham is now 70 years old, widowed and "Bud" does not appear in this household in the Census Report.

In 1923, Abraham McFadden dies. He is laid to rest at Rough Creek Cemetery in Laurel County, Kentucky beside his wife America. His stone simply reads, "A. H." 73 years, 2 months and 5 days".

James was a widower when he married Emily Brock in 1924 but did not show up in the 1920 Laurel County, Kentucky Census.

On the marriage application to Emily Brock in Marriage Book Number 42 Page 229 of the Laurel County Court Clerk's Office James Bud McFadden states that he is 48 years old, that he is a widower and this is his second marriage. Was his first marriage to Dillie Ann Gregory? Where did his first marriage occur? Didn't he need a second marriage before Emily to account for Caleb by Susan Whitis?

On the marriage application for Garfield McFadden to Maggie McCowan recorded in Marriage Book Number 42 Page 503 of the Laurel County Court Clerk's Office Garfield states that his parents are: Bud and Dillie Ann McFadden. Garfield's Death Certificate states that his parents are James McFadden and Dillie Ann Gregory.

On the marriage application for Abe McFadden to Maggie Mooney recorded in Marriage Book Number 43 Page 41 of the Laurel County Court Clerk's Office Abe states that his parents are James and Della Ann McFadden.

On the marriage application for Caleb McFadden to Bessie Rader recorded in Marriage Book Number 48 Page 445 of the Laurel County Court Clerk's Office Caleb states that his parents are James and "Susie" McFadden. Why does Caleb say "Susie"? Is this a second wife and Emily Brock is the third?

This accounts for all the grandchildren, except America, living with Abraham and America in the 1910 and 1920 Laurel County, Kentucky Census. More research is needed here. America reports in the 1900 Laurel County Census that she has given birth to three children and I have only accounted for two, Alice and James G. "Bud" McFadden.

I have changed the name of Abraham and America's daughter from Alice to Mary E. per the 1880 Leslie County Census. I have also added a son named George. So far this would account for America's three children, Mary E., George and James "Bud" McFadden but further research is needed. Mary E., and George are listed in the 1880 Census yet James Bud McFadden is not. His death certificate states he was born prior to the 1880. Census. America states in 1890 she has had three children. There are only two in the household in 1880. Enumeration District 61.

Abraham married America Saylor, daughter of Robert Saylor and Rebecca Ann Unknown, on 13 Aug 1874 in Laurel County, Kentucky.34 America was born on 29 Oct 1854,32 died on 28 Jan 191961 at age 64, and was buried in Rough Creek Cemetery, London, Laurel County, Kentucky.11

General Notes: Is this America McFadden born 1854 and buried at Rough Creek? She says in 1900 Laurel County, Kentucky Census that she has given birth to three children.

Our Cousin Rodney Whitaker of Somerset, Kentucky has been very generous in helping fill in a lot of the blanks about Westerfield McFadden's family. He's kindly added a lot of missing relatives for us, corrected some errors and graciously given of his time and shared his files in this effort. He's a 3rd great grandson of Jesse McFadden.

Marriage Notes: Dora is 16 years old. They marry at L. J. Brock's house.

General Notes: A granddaughter to Wes and Dora McFadden sent the following e-mail pointing out that I had Dora's maiden name listed as "Parker" instead of "Lewis". Rodney Whitaker, a great grandson of Wes and Dora solved the mystery by talking to Thelma Taylor, one of Wes and Dora's children. Here is Brenda's e-mail and Rodney's response:

Don,

I found 8 of 11 birth records for Wes Mcfadden's children in the Kentucky birth records (1911 to 1999) on Ancestory. com. Harry, Julia was spelled (Iula), Gilbert, David, Haley was spelled (Mahala), Raleigh, Arnold, and Ranold which was spelled Ronold all list Dora Lewis as their mothers name. The records I found had certificate numbers. My mother was Haley and I have 2 family bibles listing her mother as Dora Lewis.

I noticed that marriage records were listed saying Dora was 16 when she married Wes. Was her name listed as Parker on those records? After all these years I am confused about what my grandmothers maiden name is. Thanks so much for putting the piece about my sister (Joanne Yaden Taylor) on the web site. She was a very special person.

Brenda Elliott

Don,

I think I can clear this up. After talking to Sis today here is how it works. Dora was born a Lewis and her mother remarried a Parker. Dora’s mother’s name was Hallie Lewis and she is buried at Hopewell.

Here is a good one; I know you have been looking for Westerfield’s grave. He is buried at Rough Creek and has a Road over his grave. Apparently it was never marked.

Thanks,

Rodney


In Laurel County Court Clerk Records Marriage Book X Page 154 there is a handwritten note which says, "Mr. Clerk of Laurel County, Please give Wess McFadden license to marry Dorra Parker. Signed Nathan Parker and Halia Parker. Seems to indicate that Nathan and Halia Parker are her parents but note
never really mentions a relationship. Birth Records of 9 children indicate that Dora was actually a "Lewis". Clara's Birth Certificate is indexed as a
daughter of "Darel Lewis". Others are "Dora Lewis". No Birth Record found for Thelma or Edd.

Also no Death Certificate has been located for Dora.

On the date of her death on March 28, 1935 the Sentinel Echo in London, KY reported that, "Mrs. Wes McFadden is seriously ill at her home here and her recovery is doubtful. (This from the Rough Creek section of Laurel County).

On April 4, 1935 the Sentinel Echo reported that, "Mrs. Wes McFadden died at her home in Brock Thursday March 28th of pneumonia and was buried in the Fariston Graveyard on Friday. She leaves a husband and eleven children."

Dora never fully recovers from the birth of her last child.

General Notes:

Lucinda's birth referred to in David McFadden's pension file in National
Archives. She is born 7 years after the death of David McFadden to Elizabeth Brock. Takes McFadden name. Her real father's last name was Tuttle. Lucinda marries Aaron Smith. Lucinda is known as "Ellen" and states in the 1900 Laurel County, Kentucky Census that she has given birth to five children and two are living as of date of this Census.

1864. Marshall Smith and Louisa J. "Janie" Tuttle get married on April 30, 1864 in Laurel County, Kentucky.

1870. No Aaron listed in Laurel County Census for Marshall and Louisa Smith household. Should be an eight year old son here.

1914. On January 25, 1914 Aaron Smith gets marriage Bond to Mary Tuttle.

1920. Aaron Smith living in Rockhouse Precinct in Laurel County, Kentucky Census Report with 3rd wife Mary.

A school record or a death record would be useful. If Aaron Smith and Aaron Tuttle are the same person why is he a Smith at age 18 yet a Tuttle for his marriage bond and then a Smith on the later records? Who is Janie Tuttle and when did she arrive in Laurel County?

When was the pension inquiry and exactly which Tuttle originated it? Did Aaron change his name and move around this time?

General Notes: 1899. This newspaper article from the Pittsburg Daily Headlight. December 2, 1899 describing the death of Margaret Moore McFadden's father.

MINER KILLED. James Moore, an Employee of Beck's Coal Mine, Killed By a Fall of Rock. James H. Moore, a miner employed at C. A. Beck's mine, was caught by a fall of slate this afternoon and killed. He was at work in his room at the time and was down on his knees digging and while in a stooping position the large rock which would weigh about two tons fell and landed on his back and forced his head and shoulders down between his feet. The rock rested partly on a pile of rubbish which prevented him from instant death. W. A. Cooper, another miner who worked in the adjoining room, heard the fall and Moore's smothered cries for help. He rushed to his assistance and when he got to him he was unable to speak but he was breathing heavily and was in a conscious condition. Cooper summoned help as quick as possible but nothing could be done for the unfortunate man until jack screws could be procured and a trip into the city had to be made before they could be had. Moore gradually stopped breathing and within fifteen or twenty minutes life was extinct. The accident happened about two o'clock and it was ten minutes past three before the body was got out from under the awful weight. No bones were broken nor were there any bruises to speak of. His face, however, was black showing that life had been crushed out of him by degrees. The body was taken to the home of W. A. Cooper, 311 West Forest Avenue, where he boarded. He was a brother of Dan Moore, employed in the Durkee Coal Company at Weir City and also a wife and three children living in Doty, Missouri. They were notified by telegram of the accident, immediately after the body was taken out. The rock is what is known among miners as pot rock, and there is no guessing its thickness, as the sound is very deceiving when struck with a pick or hammer. Moore had thirteen cars of coal out for his days work ready to go up to the top and would have knocked off work for the day within twenty or thirty minutes longer. Justice Campbell was summoned as acting coroner and visited the scene and viewed the body and after an investigation into the fact decided that no inquest was necessary. He found the mine in splendid condition and safe in every particular.

1899. Maggie had not reached her third birthday when her father, James Harvey Moore was killed. After his death, Maggie's mother, Sally Evans returned to Kentucky and moved in with her sister (or step-sister) Mollie Templin. Sallie could have possibly already been ill by the time of her arrival which may have played a part in her decision to move back to Kentucky to be near her sister since she had three small children. Sally spent the next two years practically bedridden before her death spending her time singing church hymns in the household of Grant and Mollie Templin.

284. James Bud McFadden was born on 11 Sep 1877 in Laurel County, Kentucky,80 died on 3 May 1949 in Laurel County, Kentucky81 at age 71, and was buried on 5 May 1949 in Rough Creek Cemetery, London, Laurel County, Kentucky. Another name for James was Bud McFadden.

General Notes: James "Bud" McFadden is buried beside his wife Emily Brock with a common stone in the Rough Creek Cemetery. Beside them are "Bud's father and mother, Abraham and America McFadden.

James married Dillie Ann Gregory. Dillie was born on 27 May 1885, died on 1 May 1909 at age 23, and was buried in Mt. Salem Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

Marriage Notes: On the marriage application to Emily Brock in Marriage Book Number 42 Page 229 of the Laurel County Court Clerk's Office James Bud McFadden states that he is 48 years old, that he is a widower and this is his second marriage.

On the marriage application for Garfield McFadden to Maggie McCowan recorded in Marriage Book Number 42 Page 503 of the Laurel County Court Clerk's Office Garfield states that his parents are: Bud and Dillie Ann McFadden.

General Notes: As of January 13, 2003 I have no documentation whatsoever that Dillie Ann Gregory was the spouse of James "Bud" McFadden. But here are the reasons I have her listed as such:

#1. On the marriage application of Garfield McFadden he lists his parents as James and Dillie Ann McFadden.

#2. On the marriage application of Abe McFadden he also lists his parents as James and Dillie Ann McFadden.

#3. On the base of the grave marker for Dillie Ann Gregory is the inscription, "Erected by James McFadden".

#4. Per her grave marker, Dillie Ann Gregory dies in 1909.

#5. In the 1910 Laurel County, Kentucky Census James "Bud" McFadden is now living with his parents, Abraham and America. Also in the household are three
grandchildren of Abraham's; Garfield age 6, Abe age 5 and America age 3. I am assuming that after Dillie Ann dies, James "Bud" and his children move in with
his parents.

#6. On the marriage application of James "Bud" McFadden to Emily Brock in 1924 he states that he is a "widower".

#7. Garfield McFadden is buried beside Dillie Ann Gregory at Mt. Salem Cemetery, Laurel County, Kentucky.

#8. Remembering that Dillie Ann dies in 1909, there is yet another grave marker nearby for "Daisy Johnson Daughter of James McFadden. She was born January 17, 1911 and dies Decemer 29, 1912 If this is James "Bud" McFadden's daughter I question why the last name for this young child is "Johnson".

#9. In the 1920 Census for Laurel County, Kentucky a new grandson, Caleb McFadden, age 7 shows up living with the other grandchildren in the home of Abraham and America McFadden. In that particular Census James "Bud" McFadden is not listed. Caleb is born September 12, 1912. On his marriage application he lists his parents as James McFadden and Susie. On Caleb's death certificate his mother is listed as Susan Whitis.

#10. In this same Mt. Salem Cemetery is a grave marker for "Susie Wife of James McFadden born January 2, 1893 Died October 3, 1912." Around this particular grave site are Whitis Family sites as well. If this is indeed Caleb McFadden's mother she would have died when he was but three weeks old.

I do have a question as to why James "Bud" McFadden would have Dillie Ann's last name listed as "Gregory" on the tombstone.

General Notes: Private Medical Dep. World War I

Hi Don,
I talked to my great aunt Edna (Parsley) Langley today. She said that her
uncle George Bowling was murdered. I guess you probably knew that. What
all does your wife's brother in law know about his grandfather's murder?
Does he know that George prefered riding a horse instead of driving a
car? George owned a store and he would often ride his horse to London to
pick up some things from a store. One day he was robbed by three men. He
came home mad and told his wife that he was going back to get them. He
said he knew them. Well, before he could do anything one man killed
George. George's wife told everyone that she tried to make him stay home
but he wouldn't listen to her. They got the man that did it and he was
sent to prison. I think she said that his name was Jim Buttry (not sure
of spelling). Edna remembers her grandmother, Lucinda McFadden Bowling.
She said that Lucinda lost her mind when George died. She just went down
hill from then on. Lucinda lived with her daughter, Ruth (my great
grandma) until her death. That's why Ruth was the informant on Lucinda's
death certificate. Edna also knew that Lucinda's parents were Westerfield
and Mary Williams McFadden. Three years ago I should have called up my
great aunts instead of trying to figure out Lucinda cousins. Well, she
told me little things she remembers about Lucinda. She always wore long
dresses. She never wanted to wear a dress above her ankle. Lucinda loved
to make butter. If someone else was making butter then she would say "I
want to churn the butter" and the family would let her. Edna remembers
licking the butter when she was a little girl after Lucinda made it and
she said it tasted so good after grandma Lucinda made butter. I like
little stories like that. She also said that her mother told her that
they were sitting on Alex and Lucinda's porch when Edna was a baby with
them and Alex decided to go bring the cows in and when he went off to do
that he had a heart attack.
Edna's looking for photos from cousins and I'll let you know if she finds
some.
