NOTE - This is the first and only census in which the name "R. S. Bush" appears. This female has an age the same as the son, Thomas Greene Bush which means if she actually were another daughter of Sarah, then R. S. and Thomas were probably twins. However, the name R. S., or any derivatives of those letters, do not appear in the 1850 nor the 1860 census. In addition, in the 1900 census, Sarah indicates that she had a total of 5 children and all the other names are accounted for. Therefore, this R. S. Bush was probably not her child but from another Bush family relative and was just coincidentally staying with Albert and Sarah at the time of the 1870 census enumeration.

General Notes:
Entered into business: 1852, A. P. Bush & Company, Mobile, Mobile County, Alabama; Cotton factory. Later to become A. P. Bush & Sons.

Moved: 1830, from Georgia to Alabama; another source puts the date at 1840. His mother's obituary states she moved in 1836, which I suspect this is the actual date.

Newspaper Article: Oct 1885, From the Mobile Daily Register, Mobile, Mobile County, Alabama, Trustee: Miss Mary Bagby's School at the Kennedy House.

Source Note: Birthplace as Fayette, Georgia was identified in a newspaper article about son A. P. Bush, Jr. See son's notes for scanned image of article.

Will: 17 Mar 1896, probated, Mobile, Alabama, wife Sarah Ann Bush entire estate and she to be executor. Witnesses: J. S. Knight, R. F. Neville, T. D. Nettles.

Marriage Notes:
There is some confusion about the names of the children. On the 1900 Census, the mother, Sarah, indicated that she had a total of 7 children and 6 remained alive. Based on the various census reports, there are a total of 8 discernable names and birth years so obviously two of them are the same person.

At first glance it might be easy to say that the first Jacob who was born in 1847 was the same as the Jacob born in 1855 but that is not correct because the 1860 census clearly shows two different sons, each with the name Jacob, but with different middle initials and different ages.

Looking at the 1850 Census shows that the name of Jacob W. is missing even though his age would be of a birth year of approximately the same as George whose name was on the 1850 Census. So it might appear that George and Jacob W. could be the same person bringing the total children to the correct number of 7.

But once again, there is a problem on the 1860 census in that it does not list William who was on the 1850 census and should be there if he was only about 10 years old. Did he die between 1850 and 1860. Surprisingly his name does appear with his parents on the 1870 census. Was he missed in 1860 or is William a duplicate of either George or Jacob W.?

My suspicions are that John W. and William H. are the same person, with the assumption the the W in John W. stands for John William. Their names never appear together on the same census, and the ages provided on the census could be the same birth year. If that were true, then I'd be down to the correct number of children, 7. But that still doesn't tell me which one died before 1900.

At this point, there just is not enough information to determine for certain if there are any duplicates and which one of them died before 1900.

NOTE - I'm not totally convinced that this is the right family. There are several things that seem convincing but there are also several things that are not just right. Previous biographies about Jefferson indicate that he remained devoted to agricultural pursuits. But this 1900 census shows him widowed in Missouri as a school teacher. However, his father was a school teacher so that could be very likely. His parents were supposed to have been born in Ireland and Pennsylvania but this record shows Virginia and Maryland instead. Another major difference is that his birth date is believed to be 29 Jul 1840 instead of the Sep 1837 date provided on the 1900 census.

The two children both show their birth locations as Ohio when in fact both were born in Pennsylvania. It does correctly show both of their parents being born in Pennsylvania.

The names of the two daughters are also confusing. The oldest was thought to be Mary A. Martin instead of Mary R. Martin. That could be a minor mistake by the enumerator but it shows Mary at the age of 35 still living with her widowed father. She did marry John H. Martin (no relation) but according to this 1900 census, that marriage would have had to occur after this date as her marital status was noted as "single".

The most confusing issue is the name of the youngest daughter, Sarah Lillian Martin. Her given name was Lillian F. and she had an older sister named Sarah who appears with her husband, Jacob E. Cook, back in York County, Pennsylvania. She was listed on the 1880 census under the name Lily F. Martin so why she suddenly decides to use a combination of her sister's name and her own name is a mystery.

In trying to figure out why the family may have moved to Missouri, I need to ask if Jefferson's wife might have died sometime between 1888 and 1900 and he then took the two unmarried daughters and relocated to Missouri? Or is this the wrong family...with very similar names and ages? (Brian L. Lightfoot)

General Notes:

How would you like a photo? This is a photo of a portrait by Mary Swift, a Quaker portrait painter in Philadelphia. I don't know the whereabouts of the portrait now. Our Elizabeth Sibbett-Lee was married about 1839 to William L. Lee, who was descended from the Lee family of Virginia. (I have yet to prove this so don't get excited). They lived in Philadelphia all their lives. She was supposed to be a Quaker. He was a dentist, and joined the Pennsylvania 7th Cavalry as a musician during the Civil War. Two of their sons joined as well as musicians. We are descended from their oldest son, William Wallace Lee who ran a printing business in Philadelphia. He became very sick during the war and was ill the rest of his life. His first wife was Mary Jane Lang Lee. Jane Lee died in her mid 30's and had one surviving child, Ida May Lee. Ida May was an Episcopalian and was the organist of a church in West Philadelphia. Ida May married Joseph Mathers, owner of a coal distribution business in Philadelphia, who was quite wealthy. They were divorced and he eventually had five wives, according to family tradition. Joseph and Ida May had one child, my grandmother, Kathryn Mathers. During the WWI, to help the war effort, Ida May let her furnished house to the civilian director of the Philadelphia Ship Yard. At the end of the war, this Canadian took all her furniture with him. She was never able to recover it. She was a diabetic and eventually moved in with Kathryn and her husband, Warren Oberholtzer. They all moved to Norristown where my grandfather was the financial analyst for the Allen Wood Steel Company in Conshohocken. Kathryn received her master's degree from Columbia Teachers College and ran a school in her home. My mother was their only surviving child, her oldest brother died of the flu in 1917 and her younger brother died with Patton in France in WW2. My mother, Jane Oberholtzer Sanborn, was a psychologist with her doctoral degree from UCLA. She had a private practice and taught psychology at University of Southern Maine. She married James Wilson Sanborn, whom she met in Washington during WW2. After graduating from Wilson College, she joined the Navy Waves. She was a decoder during the war. They had four children. My brother Lee Oberholtzer Sanborn is the oldest. I'm next (Kathryn Ann Sanborn). Then comes James Albert Sanborn and Mary Elizabeth Sanborn, the youngest.

I will put this in a better order with the dates I have and send it in a few days. Nice to hear from you. Take care and have a Happy Easter, Ann Clark

The 1850 census which shows Elizabeth still using her maiden name and living with her mother in Cumberlant county seems to contradict the marriage info to William Lee in 1839.

Marriage Notes:
(Source: Ann Clark)
Our Elizabeth Sibbett Lee was married about 1839 to William L. Lee, who was descended from the Lee family of Virginia. They lived in Philadelphia all their lives. She was supposed to be a Quaker. He was a dentist, and joined the Pennsylvania 7th Cavalry as a musician during the Civil War. Two of their sons joined as well as musicians.
--------------------------------------

At least one researcher doubts that the Elizabeth that married William L. Lee was the daughter of John Sibbett and Annie Lightfoot. It this is true, then all of the descendants of William L. Lee do not belong in this database. That researcher claims that William L. Lee's wife was the daughter of David Sibbett and Elizabeth Swift.

In addition the following 1850 census record seems to show William and wife living near Philadelphia as contrasted to the one other 1850 census record which seems to show Elizabeth still unmarried and living with her widowed mother in Cumberland county.

----------------------------------------

NOTE - There is much variance in the reporting of birth dates for James and his entire family as provided on various census records and as reported in the book by Don Methven and James Robinson, Methvens From Caledonia To America". None of the family members seemed to be consistent with the reporting of their dates throughout their lives thus there is some conflict in the documenting of certain events.

James Frazier Methven was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Lightfoot Methven. He was born 27 April 1827, in Dilltown, Pennsylvania. He married Sarah A. Murray (23 July 1824- 27 Nov 1911), the daughter of James and Susan E. Walter Murray on May 30, 1850 in Philadelphia. Their children were:
1. Thomas Jefferson Methven (23 Feb 1852-12 Mar 1880)
2. Benjamin Franklin ("Frank") Methven (23 Sept 1853-13 April 1924)
3. John Walter Methven (25 Jan 1856-03 July 1918)
4. William B. Methven (03 June 1858-30 Apr 1859)
5. Isabelle J. (Belle) Methven (03 Dec 1861- )
6. Henry W. ("Harry") Methven (10 Sept 1864-30 Aug 1947 )
7. Samuel L. Methven (22 Aug 1869-19 June 1922)
8/9. and twins Houston F. and Martha Higgins Methven born 7 Feb 1871.

Martha married Richard W. Bock a sculptor, and died in 1925. Their son, Richard W. Bock, was a sculptor and head of the sculptor department at the University of Oregon from 1929-1932.

James F. Methven was a hatter in Philadelphia before the Civil War and after the war moved to Wooster, Ohio.

James served in the Civil War in the 2nd Provisional Artillery Pennsylvania Volunteers 112 Regiment, fighting in the Battles of Spotsylvania and Petersburg. He was injured on July 30,1864 at Petersburg and had his right arm amputated by Surgeon G. W. Snow of the 35th Mass. He was discharged July 27, 1865.

2nd Regiment Provisional Heavy Artillery

The 2nd Regiment Provisional Heavy Artillery was organized from the 2nd Regiment Heavy Volunteers (112th Volunteers on April 20, 1964. This unit was originally organized in Philadelphia in 1862, Their job initially was to help defend Washington. The new Provisional unit then served in the Campaign from the Rapidan to the James Rivers from May 4 until June 12, 1864. They then saw action in the Wilderness Campaign (May 5-7), Spottsylvania (May 8-21), North Anna River (May 23-26), Line of the Pamunkey (May 26-28), Totopotomoy (May 28-30), Cold Harbor (June 1-12), Before Petersburg (June 15-18) Petersburg until August 20 and during the Mine Explosion at Petersburg on July 30th, in which James F. Methven was wounded. This regiment disbanded on August 20, 1864 and rejoined their original Regiment on September 5, 1864.

NOTE - The James Methven Civil War letters are republished on several genelogical websites including "Methvin Online" at http://www.tmethvin.com/methvin/jamesmeth.htm.These letter follow:

James wrote several letters to his wife Sarah: The following letters are written the way James wrote them, the way he spelled and with the desperation he apparently felt at not receiving answers to his letters from his wife. He was feeling neglected and forgotten. The first letter was written from Alexandria, Va. Parts are missing or not readable. Note how James (who addresses his letters to "Said", apparently a nickname for his wife, Sarah) tells Sarah that it is her duty to write him.

"...Colonia Wilhelem at Alexandra, Va wheare we are now encamped on the common awaiting the organization of our new Redgment as we have all ben ordered to joine the new Redgement- which is styled The 2nd P.V.

----------------------

James must have finally received his letter from Sarah because he writes to her on May 3rd, 1964 from Alexandria, Va., the following letter:

Dear Said,
I have been very sick cince I wrote to you. I was over heated and fatiqued with the march and being compelled to lay on the damp ground it gave me a chill and brought back an attack of the sore throat and my limbs feel as though they would separate from my boddy. And now in the midst of all this we are ordered to be packed and ready to march at 4 o'clock tomorr ow morning. We are informed that Fairfax Court House is our destination it is hard to tell. We have ben plased in a new redgement and I trust they are doing all they can to make an infantry redgement of us. They gave us shelter tents and muskets prepretory to our march which makes us think that we are bound for the front. Said, you are very kind and your love for me must be verry deep that makes you think and wright...
-----------------

From Alexandria VA, the Union troops marched to the south to Spotsylvania, Virginia, where James wrote Sarah on May 12th, 1864, telling her about the intense battle just fought and about losing his hat, which was bad because of the heat in July.

Dear Said,
I again take my pen in hand to let you know that I am still a live though nearly woren out with fatague. We have ben in line of battel for the last ten days, marching and fiting day after day from all accounts there has never ben such a prolongued and deathly fiting on this continent. The loss on both sides is emence there is no description as yet every place is strewn with dead dying and wounded. Today has ben the hottest fiting ever heeard of. One constant volley of musketry and artillery ever cince 12 o'clock last night there has not ben one moments sessation. We have today captured 10,000 rebs and sent them off for safer quarters. Cince dark there the firing has seased. And cince comenced these lines they are now renewing the attack. They are trying hard to break our lines but I they will have to surender in mass between now and tomorrow night. They are fiting desperate but it will availe them nothing. I think they are about plaid out. I will bid you good night the roar of artillery and the whising of the musket balls and shells are coming to close. I must leave my love to all. Tell them I am still safe well and without a scratch. I lost my hat at the battel, of Mine Run on last thursday and if I live to get through this battle I would like to hav another.

Your affectionate Husband
J.F. Methven (Remember me in your prayers)
------------------

From Spotsylvania, James F. Methvin and his Regiment traveled south to Petersburg, Va, where he writes the following letter to Sarah on July 5th, 1864. He is very depressed about the lack of being paid, being robbed of his possessions and his sickness. The lack of good drinking water also added to the misery of both sides.

My Dear Wife

To day I have a few leasure hours, and my first thoughts are of you and my family. I am anxious to know how you are getting along. I know that this must be hard on you, but when you think of what I am going through, your troubels would not be a drop compared to mine, we have gone through another change our officers and all our best men have fallen, maney buryed on this ground and others wounded and sent to Washington or home and others captured and sent I suppose to Richmond. The handful that is now left has ben plased under comand of a bulheaded Irshman that is lording it over us all that he can and all of us that our other officers had detached on with special services to keep us out of danger have ben releaved and placed in the extreme front line and me with the rest will now have to be the formost ... The coming battel which is momentary expected we lay heare in the broiling sun watching each other like to fiting cocks, going through all the motions, each waiting on the other to commence the ball We have a regular picket scermish every night and an artillery duel every day. The heat is killing of our men nearly as fast as the bulets. Heat and sulfer water that we have to drink the water is very scarse and bad it reduces us to walking scarcely strength enough to move one foot before the other. You would be surprised to see the demorlised state that we are in to see the few and emaciated formes of those now left it would Surprise you beyond your compryhention, all brought on by hard marching and being kept constantly in the front without any liagal organization. We have ben compleatly swindeled in every respect, eaven to our pay we have not receaved a cent yet nor can we tell when we will. We were mustered the other day for pay but as yet we know not when it will come along. This is the third time that I have ben mustered and receaved nothing yet. As son as we get the money we are going to appoint a man and send him home to our famileys with it. I have never ben so poor and destitute in my life as now. The carpet bag you spoke of was carried by a young man from Phily and he was captured and I suppose sent to Richmond. So that I lost all that it contained and in the first battel of Mine Run, I lost my hat and nearly all my clothes and the worst of all was the few littel trinckets and bit of clothing that I had preserved and carryed in my haversack. One of those New York pickpocket crowd of 2nd mounted riffels had to steal from me at Cold Harber. After marching all one night and day untill about eleven o'clock the next night we lay down on the side of the road to take a rest being over come with fatique and almost dead I lay down fasend my haversack to my arm so that if any raid was maid on it th at I would be imedeatley awakend for it now contained all my worldley stores your likeness in the locket, my shaving tools, hat band, pocket hankercheifs sacks and all the keepsakes from you and the boys and even my canteen, the straps wer cut and taken from me without my feeling any motion of the theif So you see that I was left compleatley minus of every thing worldly even to my wife, the boys likeness I still have, all that I possess. I hope that you have better luck than I have, and that the origanall will still continue true. Today is the first day that I have ben abel to put my boots on in fact I have onley one on. My blood has ben so over heated and my system so reduced that I became very sick and broken out with a rash- It first resembeled eresyplysis and toard the last small pose. The doctors having no medicins and still less brains I had to drag a long in this condition for the last six weeks doctoring my self the best that I could. I am now about recovered and begin to feel like myself Your Affectionate Husband,

J.F. Methven
----------------------

The next letter was written at the front lines near Petersburg, Va on July 28th, 1864. James was getting upset again because he felt that Sarah was not writing him like she should, he still had no money but he still feels lucky to be alive when so many other soldiers around him are getting killed.

My Dear Wife,

Why in the name of God is it that you do not wright. I have not receaved a line from you cince the 4th of July. i can not imagine what you are thinking of. Heare I am hamesed up night and day with scarsley a place to lay my head and on the go all the time from one point to another. You may imagine of our movement by the name that the Rebs give our corps. They call us Bumside's flying menagrie. This is on account of our quick movements in flanking them, our movements have ben flank movements and we have he aded them off in every move they made, and where they least expect to s ee us there they find we are in front and have headed them off. For this they are at a loss to account, but our toil and suffrings account for it all. We have ben kept in front and on the move all the time cince we left Alescandra. It has ben a hard ordeal for us, we have ben all broke down in body and spirits what is left of us. Our battery now out of 147 men when we started numbers 15 men for duty, and the other batterys in proportion. The redgement where we started numbered 1400 and 80 men the redgement now numbers less than 600. This will give you a slight idea of what we have gone through in marchings toils and suffrings. Tongues can never tell of our endurances in this unholy rebellion. and the deceptions practised on us by our government. We are still held in the infantry servis, which was to be for 30 days, we are now 90 days the 2nd of august which by law is all they can compel us to serve for three years. I beleave they will releave us about the 2nd and remove us to the rear perhaps back to Washington, but we can not tell. Time alone will solve our fate. And as yet they have not payed us a cent of our money. Perhaps they will give us our money the 2nd of August. But amidst all these difficultys and hardships you and I should thank God that I have ben spared and protected from the many dangers that suround me. I can not be thankful enough when almost hourly my comrads are beeing cut down by my side. I am still spared with the exception of having the stock of my gun shattered to pieces in my hands by a bulet and a slight cut across my right arme. I have receaved no other injury. This was done by a reb sharp shooter while I was on picket. I have recovered from sickness and am enjoying good health at present. The weather heare is so intensley hot that I can scarsley endure it. It seemingly takes all life from my body and I feare that it will harme me more than the bulets. I must close. The rebs are now throwing shells all around us and we have to retire to our hiding places untill they stop. If you can I wish you to send me some money. I wrote you a letter a few days ago telling you what I wanted. I have no money to get even a smoke of tobacca, and many like comforts I could get had I some change. Most of the boys get papers and letters and many littel things every mail sent to them and heare I am a lonly forgotten nothing. No mail comes for me. I trust God will not forget me. My love to the boys and friends.

Your affectionate Husband.
J.F. Methven
----------------------------

James wrote the following letter the next day, July 29th, 1864 from Petersburg, the day before he lost his right arm during the battle. This letter names the children he and Sarah had up to that date and talks about the coming battle the next day.

My Dear Wife
Peetersburgh July 29th, 1864

Last night we wer releaved from the front line and moved back to the rear for the purpose of having a few days rest. How long we can not tell. I wrote to you yesterday, which will give you an idea of my feelings and situation and the rest that we are now enjoying is a God send to us I assure you. I want you to answer these letters as soon as possibel. I have not receaved any letters from you except the one dated the 4th of July. If you doe not explaine your neglect I will not wright you againe. There is no excuse for the mail comes regular every day and all the men get letters and mail parsels from home but me. i am the forgotten one of the re dgment. Just as I expected when I left home. But thank God He still protects me and I am now enjoying good health but much deprest in Spirrits to think that her that should always be first and last in all my well being has forgotten but I hope not forsaken me, With this letter I send you a small pacage contaning some rellicks of the battel field of Peetersburg Va. As you will find a pair of womans stockings, one silver quarter dollar, one silver ring and 2 pocket knives, the small one I want you to give to Walter, the large one to Frank. the quarter dollar to Thomas and the ring and stockings to yourself or you can make the devision if you can fix them better. But above all things doe not alow them to be lost for my object in sending them home for your protection is that they may be kept safe as rellicks of a battel (17th of June) that can never be forgotten by our redgment and one that placed maney of our comrades in there long homes. These are things that I found the next day in the rebbl works that we had taken, and which we still hold though we have advanced cleare to Peetersburgh and yesterday our morter blue up and set fire to the buildings on the out skirts of the town and to night we expect to blow up there forts. We have them all undermined and tonight they will be scattered to the fore winds of Heaven. And very likley we will have another hard fight to wind it up. God only knows our fate. We expect to be paid off in a few days and perhaps return to Washington, but we can not tell. Give my love to all and tell the boys that they must be very particular about these rebbel presents I sent to them. They must have them when I come home or I will be very angry. Tell the boys to wright me a letter and if I can send them anything I will doe it. Your ring and quarter I war you particularley to be carful of .., and I will send you money as so on as I get payed. No more now. May God bless and protect you is the constant prayer of your affectionate and absent husband.

James was on the 30th of July wounded at the Battle of Petersburg, The Following letter was sent to his wife Sarah.

Douglas Hospital

Washington, D.C. Aug. 3, 1864
Mrs. Sarah A. Methven
1016 Clair St.
Pha

Madam.
I am requested to write you a few lines by your husband James F. Methven who arrived this afternoon to this hospital with his right arm amputated. He seems in good spirits and would like to see but he may be transferred to Philadelphia. I hope this news will not cause you any fears for his life as he is entirely out of danger only poor in health. number of his bed 236. Ward 5.

Very Respectfully,

Isaac D. Aaron
Clerk Douglas Hospital, Washington
--------------------

James was recuperating in Douglas Hospital from his amputation (performed on July 30, 1864 by Surgeon G.W. Snow of the 35th Mass.) and broken leg when he had a nurse write his wife on August 30, 1864. Sarah had been to visit him prior to this letter as he mentions her visit.

My Dear Wife
Yours of the 22nd received in due time and this is the first time I have had to answer it.
I am getting along nicely though I suffer a good deal of pain from my wound. I am so that I can sit up now every day a little while. I have plenty of reading matter so that I pass off the time pretty well, and though I think of home a great deal yet I keep up good courage and live in hopes of seeing you before a great while, though I guess not quite as so on as the Dr. said when you was here.
I do not get any potatos yet, eggs are the heartiest food that I get.
Our state agent has not been to see me yet, faithful isn't he?
Please to continue the remittance, as it is a great help to me, to be able to get things that I can not get without money.
I have written 2 or 3 times to ... but have not received any answer.
Tell the boys that as soon as I am able to walk I shall be at home to attend to them, they must be good and do all they can to help their mother.
Love to all, write soon to your aff. Husband (By E.F. Skinner, Nurse)
--------------------------

James again writes to Sarah from Douglas Hospital in Washington through another nurse on September 26th 1864. Sarah has had a baby boy between his last letter dated August 30 and the date of this letter- September 26, 1864, (Henry W. born September 10th). James is patiently waiting on his papers so that he may go home to Philadelphia.

Dear Wife,
I received your kind and affectionate letter and was glad to hear that you are getting along so well. I am getting along quite smart and as well as I can expect under the present circumstances. I am sorry that I could not been home before this and I also tell you that I cannot tell when I will be able to get home. They are very busy making out furlongs and tranfers for the men but I can't tell when my turn will come but it will come it time. Suppose I would also tell you if you want me to name the boy you will either have to wait until I get home or name him yourself I would also tell you that I sent you on last Friday $20 dollars in Fat her's letter I will also send you $40 dollars in this. Please answer right away and let me know whether you get it or not. I am not able to write yet or I would have wrote sooner to you but you may rest assured th at I am doing as well here as I could be doing anywhere having good treatment and every thing else that is beneficial to my health and my wounds. I must now close. Give my love to all inquiring friends and accept a b ig share for yourself I remain your husband,

James F. Methvin
----------------------------

The following letter is written to James Methven, September 13, 1864, while he is still at Douglas Hospital in Washington by Thomas Methven, James' father. He is writing from Wooster, Ohio and has apparently just heard of James misfortune at Petersburg. The handwriting is wonderfully neat.

My Dear James,
I have just now heard of your sad misfortune through Sarah, she tells me that you right arm is amputated and one of your legs broken, which is certainly bad enough, nevertheless it might have been worse, we are all so happy to think that your life will be spared a while longer, and that you will get home to your family as soon as you are able to be removed. She says she heard from you since she arrived home, and that you felt ,better and hoped to regain the use of your leg, and that you were very kindly treated where you are, for which we all feel thankful. Bad as your condition is, it is not so bad as your poor brother-in-law, Henry Murry, by the by Sarah does not mention him in her letter, but we heard before that he is blind, lost his eye sight at the battle of Gettysburg, and I have just heard from your brother Angus that his brother-in-law Henry Williams was killed before Atlanta. Angus was in that Raid of Rousseau's thru Ala. and Georgia, where they committed such depredations on the Rebs. He said they rode for 20 days and had not over 2 to 4 hours rest out of the 24. He rode for 6 days with his left leg hanging useless, his horse fell with him and fractured the ancle bone and as it was unwholesome to fall behind, he kept up with the rest of them. He wrote last from Vining Camp, Georgia, but I hear the Regt. is coming back to Decatur, Ala. again to get fresh horses.

The rest of us are well, I will not trouble you with any more news till I hear how you get along. I hope soon to hear of your recovery, and I beg of you to keep up your spirits and never think of getting the blues. You will yet be a useful member of society and altho' you cannot write yourself, perhaps a friend will drop me a few lines on receipt of this just to say how you get along. I answered Sarah,s letter, but am not sure that this will reach you, as I have no directions but Douglas Hospital and I know not where it is located.
Your Affectionate father, Tho. Methv
-------------------------

On October 16, 1864, James again writes his wife telling her that he doesn 't know when he would be able to return to Philadelphia.

Dear Wife,
It is with pleasure that I have those few lines wrote to let you know how I am getting along. My arm is doing well but my leg, is not so well. It keeps sore. The doctor operates on it every morning and I haven't been very well myself for several days. I can't tell when I will be at home. You needent look for me untill you see me coming. I received them papers and all the letters you sent me. I want you to write. Don't stop writing because you don't git answers to them for I cant answer them only as I can git a friend to do it. I wont you to write and let me no whether the United States (?) has ben there or not and if he comes pay him the ten cents and git a receipt and send it to me, or git someone to do it for you. Tell the boys to be good boys and I will be at home before long and I will fetch them a presant. You were talking about coming down here and fetching the baby with you. It wont do you need nothing of such a thing. i would like for you to be here with me but it wont . So I will close hoping to hear from you soon.

This from James F. Methven To Sarah J. Methven

During the later part of 1865, James and Sarah's son Frank had apparently gone to Ohio to visit or stay with his grandparents. During this time there were some letters exchanged between Frank and his brother Thomas. This first letter is from his Mother, obviously proud of her son being able to write.
--------------------------

My Dear Son
Philadelphia Oct 8/1865

It gives me great pleasure and I cannot tell you how proud I feel to know that I have a son able to write a letter to me. I feel as if I had not labored in vain in sending you to school, Your letter was very interesting and nicely written and every one I saw today I told them I had received a letter from you. I expect you feel at least I hope you would like to see me for I want to see you right bad and Walt wants to see you to. He can scarcely wait for he thinks his father is coming for him. I was thinking of you today for I baked a Dutch cake and you like cakes. How would you like to live out there. What do you think of me going down to (?) for that set of garden tools, now is the time you will need them when you live in the country. Oh I feel as if I could tel you a whole lot of things. Will? Murray said he was going to write you today. But I do not know how he made out. Well Frank you know that Great Base Ball Club that Tom belongs, he is secretary, well they had a meeting last night and they have 12 members. Mrs. Gibson sends her love to you. Good night. I will send you a kiss in this X. and 25 cents to buy some candy. I am forever your affectionate Mother.
Sarah A. Methvin
Write very so on again.
-----------------------------

This first letter from Thomas Methven to his brother Frank was written January 20, 1865. Frank was in Milibrook, Ohio staying with his grandparents. He tells about his father James receiving his new arm.

Dear Brother,
Philadelphia
I received your welcome letter and was very glad to hear from you. Walter says that he sends his love to you. Mother says that we are coming out soon. I send my love to you and to all the folks. Frank dont be worried about us because we will be out there as soon as Pop can walk on his leg. Little Bell sends her love to and a kiss. Little Harry has a boil on the side of his which has made him very sick. Tell cousin James that Walter has got a present for him. Shorty sends his love to you. Tell grandmother that I send my love to her. Little Bell has got a set of dishes and a box of wooden furniture. Maggie also sends her love to and Uncle Harry also sends his love to you. Mother has sent you a box of things and she w as worried about your receiving it. Mother is going to write to you. Write soon to us when you recieve it. Little Bell says that she is going out west.

No more at present I still remain your affectionate Brother, Thomas Methven Mother has sent you a box of clothes ten days ago and wants to know if you have received it and if you have not go to Wooster for it.
----------------------

Thomas writes Frank late in October. The spelling is Thomas' and is pretty good for a boy of about 13 years of age in the 1860's. He and his brother are very close as is evident in these letters.

Dear Brother
I tought that I would drop a few lines to you. To ask you how you are and to tell you how lonesome I am with out you for Walter has gone to Wilmington and I have no body to play with and little bell is waiting to see you and I cant hardly wait till I get there for mother says we are coming out there to live when is pap going to send for us. Mother is making up all your clothing and getting ready to come out. I think you must have had a splended time and I wish I had been with you. We still have our baseball club and I am going to bring my ball with me. Shorty wrote to you last week do not fail to answer it and write the best you can. Frank dont let pap come back again for I can help mother out there. I am stil in the office but mother is trying to get me another place for they only give me a dollar and a half. All the boys in the neighborhood are inquring after you. We went to (?) point and you ought to have been here. It was elegant, the procesion was seven miles long and in the prosession were sixty indians and a goddess of liberty drown in choarot look like silver aunt Martha and all the folks were there. Give my love to all.

T.J. Methven
--------------------------

James arrived back in Philadelphia leaving Frank in Ohio. This next letter is written in December, 1865. It sounds as if Thomas is getting anxious about moving out west to Ohio.

Dear brother,
I thought that I would drop a few lines to you to tell you that pop got home safe and to ask you how you are getting along and to ask you how uncle Daniel is getting along. Mother was very glad to see pop and was very sorry that you did not come home with pop. Tell grandfather that father got home safe saturday afternoon and he said that you all are waiting for us to come out there. Frank, mother says that we are comming out there very soon dont be worried about us comming because mother says that she is comming out there soon. Walter has been taking care of your skates he has been greasing them and keeping them clean and he has been rubbing the rust off. Walter says that he is going to bring them out to you. You may be looking for us in a couple of weeks. Frank tell all the folks that I send my love to them tell uncle Daniel that i send my love to him tell my cousins that I send my love to them all tell aunt Ellen that I send my love to her. Tell grandmother that I did not forget her tell her that I send my love to her and to Mrs. (?).

General Notes:
Daniel Methven was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Lightfoot Methven. He was born in Ohio on November 23, 1829. Because he had a hearing problem, Daniel did not serve in the War Between the States. Daniel was a farmer and also operated a woolen mill at Millbrook, Ohio. Daniel married Ellen Flack (Oct 24, 1834-Feb 17, 1902), the daughter of James and Judy White Flack. He moved from Wayne County Ohio to Springfield, Minnesota in April 1873 and later on to Antioch and Galt, California.

Defective hearing prevented enlistment in the Civil War. Served two weeks as a non-combatant at Nashville, Tennessee. Operated a woolen mill at Millbrook, Ohio for several years, took a homestead on government land near Springfield, Minnesota in April 1873, later lived at Antioch and Galt, California.
----------------------------------------

On June 5, 1873 Daniel filed a Declaratory Statement of his intent to homestead property in Springfield, Brown County, Minnesota. On January 12, 1881 he made his final payment of $7.72. A Homestead Patent was issued to Daniel on October 18, 1886. Daniel sold his farm on June 26, 1888. He had already moved to Dassel, Minnesota where he was operating a textile mill. In September 1885 Daniel proposed opening a woolen mill in the city of Litchfield. Articles of Incorporation were drawn up with Daniel as a Board member and manager of the mill. By April 1886 the mill was up and operating. In June, Daniel ended his association with the mill and moved to California. In August 1888, the Litchfield Woolen Mill was totally destroyed by fire.

Memoir of Daniel Methven to his Children,Grand -Childrenn, Nieces, and Nephews:

I have been told away back one hundred years or more ago there was a man, a Scotsman, by the name of James Methven, a minister of the gospel and a man of rather more than the average ability as a preacher, who lived in the city of Edinburgh, Scotland.

The preacher was noted for his good, entertaining and interesting sermons. When he preached, the church would almost always be densely crowded. One night while preaching and perhaps about the middle of his sermon, all of the lights in the church was suddenly extinguished and left the church in total darkness. The church was so densely crowded with humanity that in breathing, the people used all the oxygen in the air, which caused the formation of gas similar to or the same as the gas that is sometimes found in deep wells of water. If a lighted torch or candle is let down in one of those wells when it gets to the gas, the light will go out, there being no oxygen to feed the flame. That was the kind of gas that was in the church that night, - there being no oxygen in the air to feed the flames, the lights went out and some of the people fainted and had to be carried out of the church into the open air. The doors and windows were opened to let in the fresh air before the candles or lamps could be lit. They did not have gas or electric lights in those days. They did not even have kerosene oil to burn in their lamps, but used tallow candles and burnt lard in lamps to supply them with light.

This preacher had another peculiar gift of nature. He could see in the darkest night almost as good as in the daytime. He had three sons. These boys did like to get out on the streets of Edinburgh at night and have some fun and a good time, but if they did not come home at the proper time their father would go out after them and round them up. When the boys would find out that the Old Man was after them they would drop everything and light out for home. They knew there was no use for them to try to get away from him, for he could see in the dark and they could not and he would catch them every time. This preacher had three sons and two daughters. He gave all of them a good education. He gave the boys mental and physical education. He sent them to a Fencing Master to learn to fence and box, so that they would be able to defend themselves if ever required to do so. He put them in charge of man to teach them to swim, so if ever they got shipwrecked or thrown into the water they would be able to swim ashore and save their lives. He also sent them to a Shooting Gallery and had them learn to shoot. Those three boys were names Angus, Thomas, and James. I do not know whether Angus and James were good marksmen or not, but I do know that Thomas was hard to beat with the rifle. He would hit the nail on the head most every time, hardly ever missed. No other man could hit him with the fist in a boxing match. He was also fond of fishing and hunting squirrels and other wild game. He would not shoot at a squirrel unless he could hit it in the head.

When Thomas became a young man he left his old home in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, Scotland and crossed the Atlantic Ocean and came to the United States of America. When he landed at New York he struck out West and traveled in that direction until he reached the town of Carlisle, Pennsylvania. He put up there for a while and taught school for a living. While in Carlisle he became acquainted with a young lady by the name of Elizabeth Lightfoot. He fell in love her and they were married in the year A.D. 1825. On April 27th, 1826, the stork paid them a visit and left them a little baby boy to take care of. They named this boy, James Fraser. On October 16th 1827, the stork paid them another visit. This time he left them a little baby girl. She was named Catherine.

After these two children came to them they were not contented to live in Pennsylvania any longer and took Horace Greeley's advice and "moved West to grow up with the country". Thomas managed somehow to buy a horse and a one-horse wagon. He hitched the horse to the wagon and put all his worldly belongings, including his wife and little boy in the wagon and started them out over the Allegheny Mountains. He then put his rifle on his shoulder and took his little baby girl in his arms and walked by the side of the wagon and shot squirrels and other wild game to keep the family in meat on the way. I was told that he carried his little girl in his arms and walked all the way from Carlilse, Pennsylvania to the little town of Kendal, Stark County, Ohio. They settled down there for a while. He took up his old occupation teaching school, hunting, fishing, and trapping rabbits.

In those days, at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, they would have shooting matches and shoot turkeys. This school teacher would sometimes attend them and go home with all the turkeys he could carry. The other fellows said it was no use for them to shoot with him for he would hit the nail on the head and take all the turkeys.

At this early day, there were very few, if any, stoves in the country. Instead of stoves, they would have a large fireplace of brick or stone built in the wall at one end of the house and a large hearth made of brick or stone in front of the fireplace, so that if any sparks of fire would fly out, they would drop in the hearth and not on the floor to set the house a fire. This fireplace was large enough to receive wood from three to four feet long and make a fire to do the cooking and heat the house. They would lay a large round log for a back-log with another in front of it laid on fire-irons or bricks to hold it up out of the ashes and to let the air pass under it to keep the fire burning. Then they would fill in the intermediate space between the front and back logs with small wood and kindling. To start the fire, they would take a piece of flint in the left hand and hold a piece of punk wood under it in the same hand, - then take a piece of steel in the right hand, and strike the flint with the steel - that would cause a spark of fire to fly out of the flint and drop on the punk wood and ignite it. They would then lay the punk with the fire in it among the kindlings and that would start the fire and when the fire was once started they would hardly ever let it go out. When they went to go to bed at night they would rake the live coals up to the back-log and cover them and the log with ashes, in the morning uncover the live coals and there was the fire, all they had to do was pile on some wood and it commence to burn. As I have told you, this fireplace had a brick or stone hearth in front of it. When Papa Methven would bring home rabbits he would sometimes lay them down on the hearth before the fire. There were two little children playing around the house in Kendal, Ohio. The oldest, a boy named James and the other, a girl named Catherine. Little James always called his sister Cassie. The stork made them another visit on November 23, 1829 in the morning. I know it was morning for I was there at the time and ought to know. This time he left them a wee mite of Humanity in the shape of a boy, it was said there must have been a mistake somehow for this baby was so little and delicate and he looked so much like a girl that he ought to have been a girl. When this little baby came in to the world, the nurse took charge of it and wrapped it up in a blanket or shawl and laid it down on the hearth before the fire to keep it warm and when little James got up in the morning he happened to see something laying on the hearth and he thought it was a rabbit his Papa had caught and he called to his little sister saying, "Oh, Cassie, Cassie come and see the pretty little rye." (Rye is the Scottish name for rabbit). That baby was called Little Rabbit for a long time, but its name was finally changed to Daniel.

The next child was a girl, born June 19, 1831 at Dorcas Factory, Wooster, Wayne County, Ohio. She was named Hetty Ann. The next was a boy, born December 3, 1832 at Dorcas Factory. He was named Angus Archibald and was said to be the prettiest baby in the country. There was a son born September 28, 1834, but he died before he was named. The last child was a girl, born October 28, 1835 at Dorcas Factory. She was named Elizabeth. Her mother died when the babe was only four weeks old. I think we had one of the best mothers that ever lived. I can remember when I was only between three and four years old that one day mother and some other ladies went visiting, when they returned to our house the other ladies stopped in for a few minutes. I was playing around in the house at the time all alone, they made the remark, "what a good little boy you have got." "Yes," said Mother, "Daniel is a very good little boy. He gives me the least trouble of any child I have got." That was 77 years ago and I remember as distinctly as though it happened yesterday. I never could forget it. I remember of thinking at the time that I was not worthy of her good opinion, for I had done some naughty little tricks that day that I was ashamed of.

That Little Rabbit lived and grew up to be a man and got acquainted a young lady, Ellen Flack, who resided in Chester Township, Wayne County, Ohio. They fell in love with one another. I was married to her on June 20, 1864.

To this union were born ten children, whose names are as follows:

Thomas H., born March 22, 1855
James Robinson, May 3, 1857
Mary Elizabeth, Feb. 17th, 1859 died Jan 16, 1897

William B., March 31, 1868 died Dec 10, 1894
Harry H., Jul 24, 1869 died May 27, 1899
Daniel Boone, Jan 29, 1873 died May 13, 1897
Ellen Flack Methven, born Oct 24, 1834, died Feb 17, 1902

Merry Christmas, To All Of You.

Sincerely,

Daniel Methven

NOTE - There were four other infant children missing from this enumeration. These include Arthur Dale Owen Methven born in 1864, Charles Andrew Methven born in 1866, William Byron Methven born in 1868, and Harry H. Methven born in 1869. The strange thing is that the enumeration for the other family members ended at the bottom of the census page and one would normally expect to find the remaining children listed on the next page. In this case, the next page begins another family. It's as if there is a missing page that was lost by the enumerator. The dwelling numbers and family numbers continue in order but the names of the missing children are not to be found on any page. The only other plausible answer is that for some reason, the four youngest children were living with other relatives and their names do not appear in this 1870 census.

NOTE - The information about 6 out of 9 children being still alive is interesting. According to the most recently available information, Daniel and Ellen had a total of 10 children and all but 3 or possibly 4 had died by the date of this 1900 census. The only three children that were known to be still alive were Thomas Hamlin Methven, James Robison Methven, and Edgar Kirk Methven. The exact date of death of Arthur Dale Owen Methven is not know other than sometime after 1895. The fact that Ellen could no longer remember the birth location of her father and provided the wrong birth date and age for herself may indicate failing mental facilities in Ellen and thus her confusion over the number of living children.

169. Jacob Lightfoot 4 16 (Daniel60, Daniel20, William4, Daniel1) was born on 1 Feb 1839 in , Wayne County, Ohio4 16 and died before 1840.16

General Notes:
Jacob is not shown with the family for the 1840 Census of Wayne County, Ohio and therefore assumed to have died in his infancy. The youngest male living in the household was listed as a "male between 15-20 years old". Daniel's father at age 72 was also staying with them so it is likely that one of his two young brothers, either John or William, may have also been staying with them. (Brian L. Lightfoot)

General Notes:
Absent on the 1850 Census of Wayne County, Ohio is the name of Adam who supposedly was born in 1843 and would have been 7 years old for this census. Both Adam and his younger brother, Jacob, are assumed to have died very young. (Brian L. Lightfoot)

Her obituary was published in the Unknown newspaper in May 1907 in Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas.

Mrs. T. B. Burnett passed away at her home southeast of town Tuesday morning. Being quite unexpected, it was a great shock to all of us. She, in company with Mrs. Harry Broughton, called on Mrs. Kessinger Friday afternoon and enjoyed a pleasant visit. She was taken ill that night and the family physician, Dr. Michener, was called. Inasmuch as she was subject to such attacks for the past few years, it was thought that she would so on be up again. More serious symptoms developed Tuesday morning and before her friends could realize it, she was dead. Elizabeth Lightfoot, was born in Wayne County, Ohio, February 19, 1844. With her parents, she moved to Cedar County, Iowa in 1856. She was married to T. B. Burnett, October 16, 1868. They resided on a farm in that locality until 1876 when they moved to southern Kansas and established the present home. Two daughters, Alice LaVerne and Ester Ruhama were born to this union, and they with their families unite with their father, in sorrow for the gentle and loving mother and faithful wife. In early life she united with the Presbyterian church and exemplified in her life the spirit of the Master. The funeral was conducted in the home, Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, conducted by the writer, attended by a very large assemblage of neighbors and friends. Interment took place in Mulvane cemetery. Members of the family present at the funeral home were the husband and daughters, Mrs. John Newton and family of this place, and Mrs. Charley Foudray and family of Beaumont; a brother, Mr. Luke Lightfoot, of Guthrie, Oklahoma; and two sisters, Mrs. Ida Williams and daughter, Bessie, of Eddy, Oklahoma, and Mrs. Mollie Farnsworth and husband of Arkansas City.

---------------------------------------------------------------


She was buried at the Mulvane Cemetery in Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas on 16 May 1907.

199 The gravestone is a large very light gray granite over 2' wide and 4' high all of which sits on top of a concrete base. The name "Burnett" is carved in large letters at the base and there is a carved open book/Bible on the top which reads "At Rest". The inscription on the face reads "Elizabeth, wife of Thomas B. Burnett, Feb 19, 1844, May 14, 1907, Gone But Not Forgotten". Other researchers had incorrectly indicated her date of death as June 16, 1907, but the correct date is May 14, 1907 as inscribed on the gravestone.


Elizabeth married Thomas B. Burnett,196 197 198 524 son of Isaac Burnett and Eliza Nixon, on 16 Oct 1868 in Iowa City, Johnson County, Iowa.195 197 198 Thomas was born on 9 Feb 1840 in , Wayne County, Ohio,196 197 198 525 died on 17 Dec 1922 in Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas195 524 at age 82, and was buried on 18 Dec 1922 in Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas.524 526

Marriage Notes:
The obituary for Thomas says the marriage was 15 Oct 1858.
The obituary for Elizabeth says the marriage was 16 Oct 1868.

In June, 1876 Thomas B. Burnett settled in Gore Township, Sumner County, Kansas on 160 acres he had purchased two miles southeast of Littleton. The trip from his former home in Pee Dee, Iowa was made in two covered wagons accompanied by his wife Elizabeth and twenty month old daughter Alice Laverne, his wife's sister, Mary Alice Lightfoot, and an Iowa neighbor who drove one wagon. Their journey was interrupted for a few days at Eldorado County, Kansas when one of the mares gave birth to a colt. There was a dugout on the property when Burnett acquired it but when the family arrived they discovered the roof had fallen in, so until a house could be built they lived in a tent in the yard of Valentine Harwood whose farm was across the road. Another daughter Ruhama Esther, was born 25 Apr 1877.

T. B. as he was familiarly known, was born in Wayne County, Ohio, 9 Feb 1840, son of Isaac and Eliza Nixon Burnett of Irish descent. He was married 15 Oct 1868 in Iowa City, Iowa to Elizabeth N. Lightfoot. She was born 9 Feb 1844 also in Wayne County, Ohio, the daughter of Daniel and Susannah Arnsberger Lightfoot, and moved to Cedar County, Iowa in 1856. T. B.'s interests were many. He was a boot maker, sewed his own work clothes including overalls of brown denim and underwear of cotton flannel, cabinet maker, harness maker and blacksmith. His farm improvements included a blacksmith shop and a barn equipped with a grain mill run by an engine powered by a windmill located on the roof of the engine room. He was ever on the lookout for better methods of doing the task at hand and spent much time studying new material. He owned the first phonograph brought into the area. He was a generous, good natured man, friend to all, with a thirst for knowledge. His keen interest in horticulture prompted the planting of an extensive orchard and experimentation with new varieties. In search of better fruit growing conditions he moved his family to Arkansas in 1896 but returned to Sumner County [Kansas] within two years to spend the remainder of their lives. Mrs. Burnett died after a few days illness June 16, 1907 and T. B. on 17 Dec 1922. He had been a member of the I.O.O.F. Lodge for fifty years and while living in Iowa a member of Golden Rule Lodge #24, getting his Master Mason degree 10 Apr 1876.

To answer a few of your questions--Why they came to Kansas. They were looking for a warmer climate. At that time there was a lot of land available in Kansas and the general trend seemed to be to move from PA to IL or IA then on to MO and KS. I sometimes think my great grandfather Burnett had itchy feet as he and Luke Lightfoot went on to Arkansas a few years later looking for a better place to grow fruit. I think they lived there only a year and came back to Kansas. Grandpa Burnett did have a big orchard on his farm. Even though he died before I was born there were still lots of trees left. I can remember the peach and pear trees but they all perished during the Dirty Thirties except a couple of pear trees near the house. My grandparents lived on his farm until sometime in the 50's. After Grandpa Foudray died my mother's sister and her husband moved in to be with Granny. As for T.B's talents, I don't think there was much he couldn't do. He even made his own overalls. I have inherited a secretary he made in 1876. It's a pretty primitive piece of furniture but I treasure it.

The Burnett farm remained in the family until just a few years ago. My grandmother sold it to one of my uncles on my dad's side of the house and they lived there, tore down the old house and built a new one, their son tore down the old barn, so there's nothing original left unless the windmill is still standing. The buildings were deteriorating and not needed. Today instead of a barn people need a machine shed and grain storage. They don't milk cows or raise chickens and pigs like we did 50 years ago. When I was growing up there was a shed where the cows were milked and feed was stored in half of it, by the windmill was a pig shed and a pen full of pigs and the chicken house had a bunch of old hens scratching and cackling. I think Granny's last old hen died of old age in the late 50's.

Both my parents grew up in the same neighborhood, went to the same country school that had been attended by both their mothers and where I also went in later years. This is the school that was organized the year after my grandmother (Alice Laverne Burnett) started to school in town where her Uncle Luke Lightfoot was teaching. My dad's mother lived on the farm adjoining the Burnett farm. This was the Darnell property which had a stage stop on it. The old barn was still there until in the 70's when it was burned along with several empty houses and the school. The farms had one by one been left without an occupant in the house and the ground was worked by renters who brought in large equipment and farmed several places. For a time some of the houses were rented, mostly to Boeing workers or air base personnel with families. Anyhow one such family moved in to the neighborhood with a couple of undisciplined teenagers and they burned the old houses one by one, including the school and stage barn before they got caught.

TB Burnett divided his farm between the two girls. Verne got the part where the house stood and Hette got more acreage with no improvements. She and her husband John Newton put up a nice house and barn just across the road from the school house and lived there until he died when I was about 3 years old. My folks lived less than half mile on up the road. By that time my other grandparents had moved into Mulvane but I had cousins within the same mile section as the Burnett farm. I think there was some part of our family in that school from the time it was built until its last year, when the son of one of my cousins went there. One year when I attended there were over 25 students. Its last year had 4. I went there all 8 years; 7 of them I had the same teacher. I think our smallest attendance during that time usually had at least one in each grade, with 2 or mo re in some.

One of the story's that came down through the years is that my dad got mad and ran away from home when just a tad. He told his folks he was going to go live with Charlie Foudray, which was my mother's folks. I'm sure he didn't get to stay very long but I can see his point.

Granny Foudray was a good cook and kept a clean house. Conditions at his house left much to be desired with 3 kids older and 3 girls younger by the time he was 5, and at the Foudray house there was only my mother.

In some of the things I read about Daniel Lightfoot you questioned his birthday being in June or January. On a family record which appears to be in Elizabeth Lightfoot's hand writing the date 17 Jun 1811 is shown.

One thing that confuses me is that in our references to Daniel Lightfoot's father he is called Jacob. Since Susannah's father was Jacob A., I'm wondering if the name was not passed down in error as I doubt any of my immediate ancestors ever knew him and your records seem to be pretty accurate. My mother's notes say, "We know very little about Grandmother Burnett's ancestors only that her grandparents were Pennsylvania Dutch and lived in the east until some time in the late 18th century when Grandmother and Grandfather Lightfoot came to Kansas -- we have very few dates." I'm not sure when she wrote this but there is 1963 at the top corner of the first page. At that time I was just beginning to take an interest in ancestry and hadn't yet accumulated any data. The first time I was in Salt Lake City I read some of the Pee Dee County History, but on a later visit I couldn't locate the book.

I better shut this down for now. My daughter and I plan to leave in the morning for Branson, MO for the next 4 days so I'll miss our little exchanges. Oh yes, I found another reference to Frank Lightfoot. It was l Sept 1855 (which I think is his birth) but after his name I have "married May" but I have no idea where I got the information. It is something I put down in the past 15 or so years. Have you tried to find him on any Arkansas census?

Death Notes:
The funeral home internment record indicates that Thomas was buried on December 18, 1922 following services which cost a total of $190, considered a somewhat better than average funeral service. The services were ordered by his son-in-law, Charles Foudray. The "casket and services" charge was $150.00, embalming was $20.00, the hearse was $10.00, and a pillow was an additional $10.00.
------------------------------------------------------------------

General Notes:
In this 1870 census record, was this a different Thomas Burnett? He should have been 30 years old but this 1870 census record shows him to be 26. Otherwise, he was married to Elizabeth Lightfoot in 1868 and was enumerated with her at home in Iowa Township just a few farms away. Maybe this was merely a case of a minor spat between a husband and wife, and Thomas was temporarily living with the Sawyers.

Thomas' wife, Elizabeth Lightfoot, was a 1st cousin to Emma Corker, wife of Andrew Sawyer. So in effect, Thomas was staying with the 1st cousin of his wife.

NOTE - This was the 2nd wife of Thomas who was also named Elizabeth. His first wife had died 3 years earlier in 1907.

His obituary was published in the Mulvane News in Dec 1922 in Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas.

Thomas B. Burnett was born in Wayne County, Ohio, February 9, 1840 and died at his home near Mulvane, Kansas, December 17, 1922 at the advanced age of 82 years, 10 months, and 8 days. On October 15, 1858 [sic...should be 1868], he was married to Elizabeth N. Lightfoot at Iowa City, Iowa. Two children were born to this union - LaVerne, now Mrs. Charles Foudray and Esther, now Ms. John Newton. These, with three grand children, one great grand child, and one sister, Mrs. R. H. Blackman of Saint Petersburg, Florida, are his relatives left to mourn his departure. Father Burnett moved from Iowa to Kansas in June, 1876, and settled on the farm where he died. He had been a member of the I.O.O.F. lodge for 50 years. He was a good neighbor, a good citizen, a good friend, and a kind and loving father. Funeral services were conducted at his late home Tuesday afternoon by Rev. A. J. Rhodes, pastor of the Church of Christ, and the body was laid to rest in the Mulvane city cemetery with the beautiful burial ceremony of the I.O.O.F.
(Source: Mulvane News, Mulvane, Kansas; Dec 1922, no date)

NOTE - In the published obituary for Thomas Burnett, the daughter Alice Laverne is referred to using her middle name of "Laverne". The other daughter, Ruhama Esther, is referred to also using her middle name of "Esther" even though she used the nickname of "Hette". It is not clear why the information given in this obituary used their middle names but most probably it was given by well-meaning relatives.

Additionally, Alice LaVerne is referred to as "Mrs. Charles Foudray" while Ester Ruhama is referred to as "Ms. John Newton". Why their titles of "Mrs. and Ms." are handled differently is not known to me and I'm not sure what significance it might represent. It could mean that Ruhama Esther Burnett Newton was separated, divorced, or living separately from John Newton at the time or it just might be nothing more than a grammatical choice by the writer. John Newton was still alive at the time but he died 4 years later. When Ruhama Esther Burnett Newton eventually died in 1970, some 44 years after her husband, she was buried alongside of her husband, John E. Newton in Mulvane Cemetery.

1878: "The History of Cedar County, Iowa, 1878" references "Wm. Lightfoot" on page 567 and 648:
Lightfoot, Wm., farmer, Section 24; Post Office Atalissa
----------------------------------------

The following is from "Cedar Chronicles 1836-1996" by Donald & Dorothy Stout:

"J.P. Stotler of Iowa township, on May 3, 1894, suffered a severe loss in his horse herd. Twelve were poisoned and seven of them died. This all happened one night. The next day he examined the feed boxes and found evidence of strychnine mixed with the salt. His loss totaled $2,250.00 for some were stallions, another a prized racehorse. A man named William Lightfoot was arrested on the basis of a sworn information. He denied the guilt and his friends raised $300.00 to get him out on bond. A hearing was scheduled later."
----------------------------------------

According to Nancy (Brinkmann) McGinnis in 2001, William had very poor eyesight and was very tall.
----------------------------------------

William's obituary in 1930 stated that he was survived by one brother and three sisters. The one brother was probably Lester, who later died in 1932, but Luke died sometime about 1930, so that means Luke probably died before William. Two of the three sisters that were still surviving would work out to be Eunice, who died only 4 months later in 1930, and Susanna who died in 1959. The only other sister that could possibly be alive in 1930 would have to be Mary Alice Lightfoot.

Wm. Lightfoot...24..OH..Laborer

(William was living with and working for the Jasaper and Frances Curney family.)

NOTE - It is interesting to note that his parents were shown in the 1870 Census to still live in nearby Cedar County, but at the age of 24, William was out working on his own in Muscatine County. The physical distance was not too far apart because William apparently met Loretta Linn in nearby Cedar County where they were married sometime around 1875.

He worked as a Steam Engineer at Saw Mill in Apr 1930. 533

He was buried at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Eau Claire, Eau Claire County, Wisconsin on 7 Apr 1930.

209 Grave location is noted as "Single Graves (G????10), Section D". The word(s) after Single Graves is indecipherable. The "Grave No. is left blank. Lenmark's Funeral Home Record of Funeral No. 23. Total charges were $193.00 apparently paid by his wife, Loretta. The date of the funeral was February 8, 1930 and internment was April 7, 1930 nearly one month later. The ground was probably frozen solid so the actual internment had to wait until a thaw occurred. The actual Certificate of Death indicates that the date of burial on February 8, 1930.


William married Loretta A. Linn,16 201 202 204 534 535 536 daughter of Moses Linn and Hannah Darner, on 15 Mar 1874 in Tipton, Cedar County, Iowa.16 201 202 Loretta was born on 13 Oct 1854 in Zanesville, Muskingum County, Ohio,201 204 534 535 537 died on 19 Jan 1946 in King, Waupaca County, Wisconsin16 537 at age 91, and was buried on 22 Jan 1946 in Eau Claire, Eau Claire County, Wisconsin.538

Marriage Notes:
According to the 1910 Federal Census of Muscatine, page 117, Loretta Lightfoot was living with her daughter LeAnna Lightfoot and LeAnna's husband, Joseph S. Weir, in Muscatine County, Iowa. This was explained by Jean Doris (Lightfoot) Stedman in June of 2001 in that Loretta and her husband, William, had been living apart due to his alcohol abuse. William in the meanwhile had moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin with his married son Lee and his wife, Mary McLaughlin. Both William and Lee worked at the Kaiser Lumber Company up through 1910.

About 1911, Loretta decided to also relocate to Eau Claire but maintained a separate residence from William until sometime after 1914 when they eventually moved back together. The Eau Claire County marriage license book, Vol. 12, page 195 shows a marriage between William Lightfoot and Loretta Lightfoot on 10 Oct 1914. I suspect that they were divorced but then remarried.

The 1920 Federal Census shows them living together. The first year of the Eau Claire City Directories which shows them together is 1926 but there are issues and names missing in previous years. I suspect that William's health may have been failing by that time because his occupation listed in the 1926 City Directory is that of "gardener" which indicates he no longer was involved in the saw mills, steam engines, or river barge traffic.

General Notes:
The Social Security application by her son, Lee Lightfoot, shows that he entered his mothers name spelled "Loritta" but he was a bad speller and the correct spelling is "Loretta" as she frequently used it or "Lorette" as her birth given name.
----------------------------------------

After William died in 1930, Loretta stayed in the Eau Claire, Wisconsin area until July 11, 1944 when she entered into the Wisconsin Veterans Home in King, Waupaca County, Wisconsin where she remained until her death on January 19, 1946.
----------------------------------------

The following land records were sent to me by Yvonne Linn. There are a multitude of land transaction records on file in Cedar County, Iowa involving land bought in the name of Loretta Lightfoot and all dated after the birth of her youngest son. I'm not sure whether these records show that the property was in her name only or perhaps only indicate her name as being on the deed along with the name of her husband. Equally puzzling is the transaction in which land was exchanged between she and her husband on October 22, 1892. The set of numbers at the end of each line may indicate a book and page number but I'm not positive. I'm also not positive which party of each transaction is the buyer and seller.

173. Luke Lightfoot 4 68 69 70 71 (Daniel60, Daniel20, William4, Daniel1) was born on 2 Feb 1849 in , Wayne County, Ohio4 68 69 70 71 and died on 21 Jun 1918 in Bushnell, Sumter County, Florida16 at age 69.

Death Notes:
This death date and location in Florida is very much in doubt. More recent records of Florida's Deaths indicate that the Luke Lightfoot that died on 21 Jun 1918 in Bushnell, Florida was born in Germany and his parents were both born in Germany which means he was the wrong person.
------------------------------------------

General Notes:
(Source: "Mulvane - City of the Valley, 1879-1977", page 41)
The first school built in Mulvane, Kansas was a two story frame building with two rooms on the first floor and one large room on the second floor. It was in this large room that the upper grades and a few high school subjects were taught. The first term of school taught in Mulvane was in 1880-1881, with Luke Lightfoot as the principal and Mrs. J. B. Shaw as teacher. The second and third terms were taught by Mr. Lightfoot and Miss McCart. The next principal was W. W. Bolton.

Margaret Wright, who helps run the Mulvane Historical Museum, said that "Mrs. J. B. Shaw" was known as "Janey Shaw" and was probably either the wife or daughter-in-law of the owner of the local Mulvane drug store, Shaw's Drugs.

It is interesting to note the educator occupation of Luke Lightfoot especially knowing that he was born in Ohio, at age 7 traveled by covered wag on to Cedar County, Iowa, and no doubt received his schooling from the predominant Quaker influenced rural school system in Cedar County. Because he was 30 years old when he went with his parents to Kansas, it must be wondered if he did not have any actual teaching experience in Iowa prior to that move. It would be assumed that he must have taught some classrooms there because as soon as he arrived in Mulvane, Kansas, he was made principal of that brand new school. His experience at that point may have been only minimal or perhaps non-existent but his schooling from back in Iowa and his ability to read and write may have been more than sufficient for the fledging school system in Mulvane and the prairie farmers in the area. In nearby Labette County, Kansas to where Luke later moved, were the Alloway family members (Malinda Arnspiger, 2nd cousin of Luke's mother, Susannah Arnsberger, married Abijah Alloway). It is not known if Luke was aware of their presence or his relationship to them but it must be quite a coincidence that he may have taught school to some of his own 2nd and 3rd cousins.

In an E-mail from Melvin and Della Shafer <harjii@mediaone.net> who do volunteer lookups for Sumner County, Kansas, they indicate in the atlas on an "Advertising Directory" page, is listed "The Kansas Mutual Aid Association", of Mulvane, Kansas and shows in its list of officers, "L. Lightfoot, Pres." I have yet to be able to determine the function of the Kansas Mutual Aid Association and there appears to be very little information about it. I suspect that it may have been related to agriculture or the range wars in Kansas.
----------------------------------------

(Source: Mulvane Record, Mulvane, Kansas, November 1, 1895)
"Professor L. Lightfoot is principal of Altamont, Labette County, Kansas. That's quite an educational center, the county high schools being there. Luke came in Sunday to attend his father's funeral. Returned Tuesday evening."
"George Farnsworth and family came up from Arkansas City first of the week to attend funeral of Mrs. Farnsworth's father, Daniel Lightfoot."
----------------------------------------

(Source: from Phyllis Storey-Harrison, June 1, 2004)
I sometimes think my great grandfather Thomas Burnett had itchy feet as he and Luke Lightfoot went on to Arkansas a few years later looking for a better place to grow fruit. I think they lived there only a year and came back to Kansas.
----------------------------------------

The following death notice may not be for the correct Luke Lightfoot because it shows a birthplace of Germany instead of Ohio. However, it is possible that this is the correct Luke Lightfoot and the record mistakenly has the wrong birthplaces:

Name: Luke Lightfoot
Death date: 21 Jun 1918
Death place: Bushmill, Sumter, Florida
Gender: Male
Race or color (expanded): White
Birthplace: Germany
Mother's birthplace: Germany
Occupation: Farmer
Collection: Florida Deaths, 1877-1939

If the above record is not the correct Luke Lightfoot, then I can only estimate Luke's death as "before 1930". Luke's death is assumed to occur before 1930 because the obituary for his brother, William, who died in February 1930 stated that William had only one brother surviving which would have been Lester who died in 1932.

(Brian L. Lightfoot) I have a printed flyer made in 1893 that is entitled "Commendations and Awards" for Luke Lightfoot as "Principal of Schools" in Dexter County, Kansas. I'm not sure if this office were an elected one or not but it is full of endorsements and praises from local officials. It shows that Luke held positions in the following school areas:

Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas: Principalship of Schools (1880-1881?)
Derby, Sedgwick County, Kansas: 1888-1889, 1891-1892

General Notes:
Following the death of her husband in 1895, Eunice probably attempted to stay in the Cedar County area. Her oldest daughter was married about 7 years earlier in 1888 and it is believed that she and her husband immediately moved to Oklahoma. Eunice's son, Neal, was married in 1893, but moved to the city of Muscatine in 1904 or shortly before.

In 1906, Eunice, a widow at the age of 56, moved to the city of Muscatine probably wanting to be closer to her married son, Neal. Moving with Eunice were her two remaining sons, James, age 37, and Luke, age 24, plus her one remaining daughter, Susie, age 19. They all lived in one house at 512 East 11th Street in Muscatine, while her married son, Neal, with his wife, Lucy, lived at 1005 Iowa Avenue in Muscatine.

General Notes:
The Wymer Family Bible of James and Emily Wymer, parents of James K. Wymer, gives a birth date of November 8, 1840. The 1880 Federal Census gives his age as 31 which would make his birth year 1849. However, the entries in the Family Bible are all in the correct order placing his name between Sarah and Louesa in 1837 and 1843 respectively therefore I believe the date of 1840 to be correct.

Marriage Notes:
Following the deaths of their two children in 1881, Lester and Catharine both were devasted by the loss. Lester gave up farming and they left Cedar County, Iowa to travel almost all the way across the state to settle into a small town named Manning, in Carroll County, Iowa. There they operated a boarding house for a number of years until 1909. They then moved on to Roberts County, South Dakota where they both operated a small farm for a number of years. By 1920 they were both back in neighboring Muscatine County, Iowa probably to be closer to Catharine's elderly parents who lived less than 30 miles away in West Branch, Cedar County, Iowa. Lester's parents had moved to Kansas and both of them had died by 1904. Many of his siblings had also moved to Kansas with the exception of William and Eunice who had married and were both living in Muscatine.

When Lester died in 1932, he was buried in the small rural cemetery, Pee Dee, near Springdale, where Catharine's parents were buried. When Catharine died in 1945, she also was buried in the Pee Dee cemetery. (Brian L. Lightfoot)

Death Notes:
Catherine was 92 years old when she died thirteen years after Lester. She apparently was staying with Mrs. Ann Smith in West Liberty, Iowa whose name was noted on her death certificate as "Informant's Name". I am unable to determine if there were any relationship to the family but it is doubtful. The cause of death was listed as "arteriosclerosis", more recently called atherosclerosis, or simply hardening of the arteries.

176. Frank Lightfoot 69 70 (Daniel60, Daniel20, William4, Daniel1) was born on 1 Sep 1855 in , Wayne County, Ohio4 16 69 70 and died after 1 Jun 1900 in , , Arkansas.16

General Notes:
There is practically no information pertaining to Frank Lightfoot. The papers collected by Iris Geraldine Sharer indicated that he was born in Wayne County, Ohio in 1855 but the family had already moved on to Williams County in 1854 so either the year is wrong or the location is wrong. Those papers also indicate that Frank died in Arkansas but no dates or specific locations were provided. The 1900 Census of Sumner County shows for his mother that she has 9 children living. This would mean that Frank was still alive at the time of the census, thus his death date is "after 1900". The notation that he died in Arkansas is probably proof that he did move with his parents when they moved from Iowa to Kansas. Phyllis Storey-Harrison has supplied me with a picture taken about 1893 in Mulvane that shows Frank standing next to his brother, Luke.
-----------------------------------------------

A search of the 1880 Federal Census records shows only one Frank Lightfoot born in the US in 1855 (+/- 2 years). Note that his birth location and the birth locations of his parents match but unless I have other information that shows he relocated to Nebraska, I cannot be sure that this is the correct person:

Guide Rock Township, Webster County, Nebraska

Frank Lightfoot...Head..24..OH..PA-PA..Farmer..single

This residence was only 3 houses away from where James Watson Arsnberger and family was living. They were 1st cousins but I have no other information to indicate if they were aware of this relationship or if it was merely coincidence. I suspect that they were aware because the relationship of being 1st cousins was so simple and the population density in the area was minimal at the time so it's almost like "everybody knew everybody else".
----------------------------------------

Likewise, the 1910 Federal Census shows the following person that appears to be of the correct age, correct birth location, and correct parental birth locations but I have no documentation that would show that he ever relocated to Missouri. The middle initial of M in the wife's name could possibly be May. Regardless, I cannot be sure that this is the correct person.

from Phyllis Storey-Harrison, July 8, 2004:
"Oh yes, I found another reference to Frank Lightfoot. It was 1 Sept 1855 (which I think is his birth) but after his name I have "married May" but I have no idea where I got the information. It is something I put down in the past 15 or so years.

177. Daniel Lightfoot 69 70 71 72 189 220 221 (Daniel60, Daniel20, William4, Daniel1) was born on 16 Mar 1858 in , Cedar County, Iowa,4 69 70 71 72 189 220 221 died on 5 Sep 1920 in Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas16 221 at age 62, and was buried on 6 Sep 1920 in Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas.221 222 He never married and had no children.

General Notes:
1909: Deed recorded 5 Oct 1909, between Daniel Lightfoot and Duncan McClarren; Block 16, Twp 79, Range 3. Daniel was probably the seller as this transaction appears to be the reverse of the sale by his father in 1858 also between the same person, Duncan McLarren or McClarren. I'm surprised that the Lightfoots still owned land in Cedar County, Iowa long after they had moved to Kansas. Daniel's mother had died 5 years earlier in 1904 so Daniel was probably the heir apparent of any of the Lightfoot estate. His married brothers and sisters that had remained behind in Iowa all had land holding of their own. His parents had owned their farm in Sumner County, Kansas but I'm not yet sure of when that land was sold or if Daniel were living there after both of his parents has died. This land parcel in Iowa remained in the Lightfoot name for over 50 years and I'm curious as to who was farming the land during the 30 years after the parents had moved on to Kansas.
----------------------------------------

(Source: 30 Jul 2004 E-mail from Phyllis Harrison)
Don't know if the date is important to you but I found from an item in the Mulvane Record that Dan Lightfoot, Jr. went to Guthrie, Oklahoma to take a position there and his mother went to live with the Farnsworths in Arkansas City in Nov 1903 and he returned to Mulvane in May 1904. It didn't say what type of position it was but he returned to work at Shaw's Drug.

He was buried at the Mulvane Cemetery in Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas on 6 Sep 1920.

221 Daniel's gravestone is a relatively small gray granite stone with a polished sloped front face approximately 18" wide and 12" high. It is located immediately adjacent to his parents, Daniel and Susannah. The inscription reads "Daniel Lightfoot, Jr., Mar. 16, 1858 - Sept. 5, 1920". The stone has sunk slightly into the ground obscuring the death date which falsely leads observers to believe that there is no date of death.
---------------------------------------------
Information from the Mulvane Funeral Home run by V. L. Gordon at the time and as listed on page 65 of their record book indicates that Daniel was buried September 6, 1920. The majority of records of the Mulvane Cemetery were destroyed by a fire in 1933 but this record shows that Daniel Lightfoot's internment was ordered by B. C. (Bert) Minnich, who ran a grocery store in Mulvane. Knowing that Daniel's occupation was listed in the census as "clerk", and that he apparently was the last Lightfoot around Mulvane, I believe that Daniel may have died while at work in B. C. Minnich's store, or perhaps he was a very close friend and that Minnich was the person who called for the doctor or arranged the funeral requirements. The record also indicates a total charge of $15 for hearse and services. Compared to other internment records of the time, Daniel's funeral was very simple and may indicate that he died without any other financial assets.

178. Mary Alice Lightfoot 4 16 70 71 223 224 225 (Daniel60, Daniel20, William4, Daniel1) was born on 26 Aug 1860 in , Cedar County, Iowa4 16 70 71 223 224 225 and died after 1 Apr 1930 in Manhattan, Riley County, Kansas.16

General Notes:
During her last years she lived at the Odd Fellows Home in Manhattan, Kansas.
----------------------------------------

The best guess for her date of death would be sometime after 1930. This date is calculated from the obituary for her brother, William, who died on 6 Feb 1930, in which it stated that he was survived by one brother and three sisters. The one brother is probably Lester, who later died in 1932, but the other brother, Luke, is known to have died "sometime about 1930". If there was only one brother that was still alive at the time of William's death in 1930, then that brother had to have been Lester and it also means that Luke died before 1930. Two of the three sisters that were still surviving would work out to be Eunice, who died only 4 months later in 1930, and Susanna who died in 1959. The only other sister that could possibly be alive in 1930 would have to be Mary Alice Lightfoot, therfore Mary Alice was alive at the time of the death of her brother William in 1930 and her death date is known only as "after 1930".

The George Farnsworth that Mary Alice married was a railroad man and they lived in Arkansas City, Kansas. Don't know that I ever heard how they met. I also don't know what the 'S' stands for but I may dig it out some day. They were always known in our family as Uncle George and Aunt Mollie. They had 3 children -- Lester, Louise and George, all of whom ended up in Oklahoma. George ran a restaurant in Enid, Louise married and lived in Oklahoma City, and so did Lester. Lester had 2 boys neither of which had children and Louise had none. George had a boy and 2 girls but I never met them and don't know their present whereabouts.

The family may have moved during the time of the enumeration for the 1910 census because they also appear under the following names but on a different page. The birth location of the father is given as West Virginia instead of Virginia.

General Notes:
Ida is identified as one of the sisters in Elizabeth Lightfoot Burnett's obituary in 1907. It states "Mrs. Ida Williams and daughter, Bessie, of Eddy, Oklahoma" attended the services.
----------------------------------------

Her residences before and after her marriage are somewhat of a mystery. Susannah would have been only about 14 years old when her parents moved to Mulvane around 1879. She apparently met Alvin P. Williams and they were married in or around Sumner County, Kansas. Some time before 1900 Susannah Ida and husband, Alvin P. Williams, moved to Oklahoma. They appear on the 1900 and 1910 Census living in Kay County, Oklahoma.

It is not known how or why she eventually moved back to Muscatine, Iowa but presumably, her husband Alvin P. Williams had died and she moved in with her sister, Eunice Lightfoot Wymer, in Muscatine, Iowa. Eunice had moved from Cedar County to the city of Muscatine (a distance of about 25 miles) in about 1906 to be together with her remaining two sons and one daughter. Eunice's name appears in the 1907 and the 1908-1909 Muscatine City Directories. (Brian L. Lightfoot)

Newspaper Article: A HOME COMING
Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Mowrer of California Were Greeted by Many Friends and Relatives
In honor of the homecoming of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Mower of Cucamouga [sic], California, a family reunion was arranged for Monday, September 6, at the hospital home of Mrs. Mowrer's brother, F. Lee Lightfoot, 137 Creedmore Ave., Barberton, Ohio. The day was one of the most delightful of the season, and the host and hostess with their family had made every preparation for the comfort and enjoyment of their guests who came in small delegations until the house was filled. After hearty greetings and pleasant reminiscences had been exchanged, all were escorted to the lawn by the bride and groom and their attendants to partake of the bountiful repast which loving hands had prepared. Merriment prevailed here and all seemed to vie one with the other in making it the most agreeable hour of the day. Later, "lest we forget" an artist was called to photograph the entire group. Those present were: Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Mowrer of Cucamouga [sic], California; Mrs. Martha Carr and daughter Wanda; Mr. and Mrs. Roy Lytle and Lorena Carr, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania; Mr. and Mrs. Warren Lightfoot and daughter, David Murry, Orrville; Mr. and Mrs. Irvin T. McClarran, Wooster; Mr. and Mrs. Lee Lightfoot and son, Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Lightfoot and son, Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Miller and son; Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Stine and family of Barberton, Misses Ella and Viola Lightfoot, Evansville, Indiana; Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Schrag and daughter of Massillon; Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Lightfoot, son and daughter of Akron; Mr. and Mrs. W. M Daniels, and family, Wadsworth; Dr. J. Earl Carr, Toledo.

NOTE - I do not have a date for this article but since Martha (Lightfoot) Carr died in 1916, this article would have been published before 1916. I'm also unsure about the use of the terms "bride and groom" but can only assume that it does not mean NEW bride and groom, but rather the previously married couple whose marriage continues. The Mrs. Roy Lytle referred to would be a daughter of Martha (Lightfoot) Carr. Lorena Carr is probably the second daughter of Martha (Lightfoot) Carr. I am unable to determine the relationship of "Warren Lightfoot and daughter, David Murry". Warren's wife's name was Jennie Murray but any children would have the last name of Lightfoot and not Murry/Murray. This could be a typographical error which should read "...and son, David Murray Lightfoot but the obituary for Warren only mentions one son, William Lee Lightfoot". The Mrs. Irvin T. McClarran would have been Harriet Lightfoot. Mr. Lee Lightfoot was Francis Lee Lightfoot and his son. Mr. W. S. Lightfoot would have been Walter Shamp Lightfoot. I can not identify the Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Miller and their son, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Stine. They must have been relatives of Isaac Mowery because there were left no more married Lightfoot sisters. The two unmarried sisters, Ella and Viola, are mentioned as both being from Evansville, Indiana. The Mrs. F. P. Schrag was Lorena who was already mentioned. Perhaps, there was another daughter in addition to Lorena Carr who I have assumed was the only second daughter to Martha (Lightfoot) Carr. The "W. L. Lightfoot" is most likely William Lee Lightfoot, son of Warren. Mrs. W. M. Daniels was Clara Lightfoot, a daughter of Warren.

She was buried at the Orrville Presbyterian Cemetery in Orrville, Wayne County, Ohio on 14 Jun 1916.

Her obituary was published in the Unknown newspaper on 14 Jun 1916.

MRS. MARTHA CARR DIES AT TOLEDO
Mrs. Martha Carr, of Toledo, formerly an Orrville resident, died at a Detroit hospital at 8 o'clock Monday evening, following an operation for acute indigestion. She was visiting her daughter, Mrs. Wanda Lind, when she was suddenly taken sick.

Mrs. Carr was born near Paradise, in 1845, and was aged 71 years. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Lightfoot. She was married in 1871 to Jerome Carr. To this union were born three sons and three daughters, all of whom survive her. They are J. E. Carr, Toledo, Charles E. and David C. Carr, of Gary, Indiana; Mrs. R. F. Lytle and Mrs. F. P. Schrag, Toledo, and Mrs. Wanda Lind, Detroit. Her husband preceded her in death by a number of years.

Mrs. Carr moved from Orrville in 1896 to Toledo, where she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. R. F. Lytle. Funeral services were held at the Lytle home in Toledo, Wednesday afternoon. The body was brought to this city Wednesday evening and burial in the old cemetery.

NOTE - This newspaper article was found within the Lightfoot surname folder in the Genealogy section of the Wayne County Library. The article was apparently cut out of the newspaper but no date or name of the publication was provided. It most likely is from the local newspaper of Orrville probably dated around June 14 or 15. The article does not give a specific burial date and only mentions that the body was shipped from Detroit and arrived in Orrville on Wednesday night, June 14th. Arthur Carr provides a burial date of June 16th and a location of Crown Hill Cemetery instead of the "Old Cemetery" mentioned in the article. In spite of the misleading headline, she actually died in Detroit, Michigan as stated in the article. They had a total of 9 children, not 6 as stated in the article; 3 children died in their infancy. The marriage occurred in 1872, not 1871. Mrs. R. F. Lytle was Elizabeth Carr; Mrs. F. P. Schrag was Emma Carr; and Mrs. Wanda Lind (Ling) was Wanda Carr.

Marriage Notes:
"The Carr Book", by Arthur A. Carr (1947), pp 393-394

"No drab and commonplace life was the life of Jerome and Martha. From their meeting at Mount Union College to his death some twenty years later their lives were crammed with action and excitement.

Their first venture was a Commercial College at Hillsdale, Mich. Then came work as a surveyor and land agent in and around Cincinnati, Ohio. From this Jerome expanded into Colonization activities in Texas with long trips across the untouched prairies. From these trips he brought home to Martha and the children many thrilling tales and wonderful souvenirs such as buffalo pelts and rattlesnake skins.

A later venture in Birmingham, Alabama in the coal business proved without profit so the family went to Saint Louis, Missouri where Jerome engaged in the insurance business.

About 1888 they resided in Carrondolet, Missouri, where Jerome became a Methodist minister in which profession he died four years later while serving a circuit of Churches from Litchfield, Illinois. He achieved marked success as a Minister of the Gospel.

Jerome Carr not only possessed a keen, active mind but an inventive one as well. In 1884 while at Cincinnati he built and patented what was the forerunner of the motor bus. Although it failed to meet requirements due to the crude gas engines of the day it attracted much attention. The family preserved a letter from P. T. Barnum offering to equip his circus with the new transportation if it proved successful. (See under Philonzo D. Carr)

Jerome was a member of the Masonic fraternity and was buried in Cincinnati with Masonic rites. After the death of Martha his body was taken to Orrville, Ohio, where he and his beloved wife lie side by side in Crown Hill Cemetery.

Nine sons and daughters were born to Jerome and Martha. Three of them, Torrence, Samuel and Mary, died as infants. The other six are all considered in the next Generation."
----------------------------------------

Emma's place of birth pinpoints their move to Michigan within the first year of their marriage. Jerome and Martha must have founded their commercial college in Hillsdale sometime between 1872 and 1876. David's birth in Ohio three years later means they left Michigan before 1876, at which point they probably moved to Cincinnati. Arthur Carr says they remained in Cincinnati in 1884.

He was buried at the Crown Hill Cemetery in Orrville, Wayne County, Ohio. I am unable to explain the large difference between the death date and the burial date (4 Mar 1892 and 1916). Perhaps the burial date is not correct or perhaps the remains were moved and re-interred some 24 years later. Apparently nobody has provided any source citations for the burial date. (Brian L.

His obituary was published in the Unknown newspaper in May 1916 in Orrville, Wayne County, Ohio.

FORMER WAYNE COUNTY CITIZEN DIES AT WADSWORTH

Sunday at 1:30 PM marked the passing away of Mr. Warren Lightfoot at his late residence in Wadsworth, Ohio after an illness of five months duration; the direct cause of his death being that of complications which followed a severe attack of la grippe.

The deceased was born at Paradise, Wayne County, Ohio, Jan. 18, 1847 where he lived with his parents until 1869, when he was married to Miss Jennie Murray, daughter of the old blacksmith, William Murray, who then lived in the Carr school district on the state road. Mr. Lightfoot after the marriage at once established himself there in the wood-working and wagon making business and continued in that capacity until 1900 when he came to Orrville and followed his previous occupation. In 1910 he moved to Wadsworth, Ohio, where he has since resided, associated with his son-in-law, Mr. Welker Daniels, at farming.

He leaves to mourn his loss a kind and loving wife, a daughter, Mrs. Welker Daniels, of Wadsworth; a son, William L., of Akron; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; also three sisters and one brother.

The services at the home were in charge of Rev. Ettor of the Lutheran church, Wadsworth, while Rev. D. M. Irvin, his former pastor and friend, officiated at the grave, interment being made in the old cemetery at this place on Tuesday. A large number of friends and relatives paid their last tribute and respect to the departed one.

Warren Lightfoot was of a quiet and unassuming nature and his period of illness was characterized by cheerfulness, patience, and resignation to the will of God. He was a good citizen, a kind father and a splendid neighbor. His friends were legion and his wedded life of nearly fifty years was happy, peaceful and contented. He was ever willing to help others and the writer well remembers in his early teens of the hours of teaching week after week freely given by Mr. Lightfoot while struggling with problems in arithmetic and other studies, many times after his hard day's work, his good advice, and his kindly example.

A noble man, passed to be with his Creator. Gone, but not forgotten.

The bride combines many graces and is also highly accomplished and an ex-teacher in the public schools at Apple Creek. The groom is a model gentleman and in every way worthy of his bride. The Crescent unites with their friends in extending congratulations.

Moor which presumably meant Mary Ann Vincent Moor even though the license gives her prefix as "Miss". The license did not provide any information if there was a previous marriage or not. The newspaper article about the marriage gave her name as Mrs. Mary A. Moore.

She was buried at the Apple Creek Cemetery in , Wayne County, Ohio on 12 Dec 1935.

619 It was interesting to note that when Mary died, she was not buried next to her most recent husband, Francis Lightfoot in East Union Lutheran Cemetery. That spot was already taken by Francis' first wife, Marie Shamp. Mary Vincent was buried in Apple Creek Cemetery. I suspect that she is buried next to her previous husband but I have not yet visited Apple Creek Cemetery to verify this. This might seem normal for remarriages of elderly couples, but Mary Vincent was only 39 years old when she married Francis and had at least one child was born to that marriage. (Brian L. Lightfoot)

Her obituary was published in the Unknown newspaper in Jan 1922.

Harriet Lightfoot McClarran, daughter of Samuel and Mary Mitchell Lightfoot, was born in East Union Township, Wayne County, Ohio, near the site of the present East Union church on December 26, 1851, and died in Wooster January 3rd, 1922, aged 70 years and seven days.

The life of the departed was spent entirely in and around Wooster. She was joined in the holy bonds of matrimony with Irvin McClarran on Feb. 17, 1874. To this union were born two children, James Earnest, who resides in Wooster, and Torrence, who died at the age of 14 months. The husband and father passed away on Nov. 7, 1917.

Mrs. McClarran's parents were members of the East Union Lutheran church and she herself also entered into Christian fellowship there when but a young girl. She has always lived a beautiful consistent Christian life. We have spoken to those who knew her as a child and went to school with her and the testimony is the same from all. We have known her personally since we came to Wooster and have been charmed with her simple Christian spirit. Humble, unassuming, gentle, refined, she lived quietly among us and though her mortal life has reached its ripened close, her sweet fragrant spirit remains to bless the lives of all who knew her. Mrs. McClarran is not, for God has taken her. Being dead, she yet speakets. Today she is with God.

The funeral was held Friday, January 6th, from the home of J. Ernest McClarran, the son, on Beall Avenue, Wooster. The service was in charge of Dr. Allen O. Becker, her pastor. The music was furnished by Mrs. Walter Mougey and Mrs. Orrie Blough. Interment was made in Wooster cemetery.

CARD OF THANKS
J. E. McClarran and family hereby desire to express their gratitude and thanks to all who kindly sympathized and otherwise aided during the illness and death of their loved one. They are grateful for the beautiful floral offerings and the help rendered at the funeral.

His obituary was published in the Unknown newspaper in Nov 1917.

Irvin T. McClarran, retired farmer and Republican candidate for trustee in this township, died at his home on Beall Avenue at 6:30 this morning, aged more than 68 years.

Mr. McClarran was one of the best known retired farmers and most active Republicans of this vicinity. He became ill five weeks ago from a complication of diseases, and his death was not unexpected. He was the only Republican on the township ticket for trustee.

Deceased was born in Westmoreland, Pennsylvania, 19 May 1849, and came to this county with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. James McClarran, not long before the civil war. He married Miss Harriot Lightfoot, and one son, Ernest, was born. The son lives on the home farm east of town, the parents moving to Wooster some years ago. Mrs. McClarran and grandchildren also survive, as does a sister, Mrs. Rebecca Rice of Clinton, Missouri. He was an uncle of Harry and Samuel McClarran, well known grocers of this city .

Mr. McClarran was a member and an officer of the Lutheran church of this city. He was a very ardent Republican and is said to not have missed an election as a worker at the polls for 30 years. Although it was known that he could not serve, he received many votes from those who knew of his death.

Funeral services will be held at the last residence at 1:30 Thursday, with Rev. R. S. Bowers in charge. Burial will be in Wooster Cemetery.

270 Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church in Tipton, Sunday afternoon, April 25th for Mrs. Emma J. Sawyer, venerable Tipton resident who had won the love and esteem of a host of friends in Cedar county. The Rev. H. N. Poston officiated. Interment was made in the Masonic cemetery west of Tipton. Emma J. Corker was born in Wayne county, Ohio, on June 27, 1843. She was the daughter of Luke and Catherine A. Lightfoot Corker. She was 93 years, 9 months, and 26 days of age at her death in Tipton, Iowa, April 23, 1937. The family moved to Cedar county, Iowa, in the Spring of 1856. They and the family of her husband were the oldest of pioneers. Miss Corker was married to Andrew J. Sawyer on June 12, 1862. In August 1862 Mr. Sawyer enlisted in Company D, 24th Iowa Infantry and served to the close of the war. He was mustered out at Savannah, Georgia, on July 17, 1865. During his enlistment Mrs. Sawyer taught school and in 1864 enrolled in the University of Iowa at Iowa City, driving back and forth from Springdale with a team and wagon.

After the war Mr. and Mrs. Sawyer made their home on a farm near Springdale. In March 1883 they moved to Tipton where Mr. Sawyer was engaged in the livery business.

195. Esther M. Corker 259 260 271 272 273 274 (Catharine Anna Lightfoot65, Daniel20, William4, Daniel1) was born on 13 Apr 1845 in , Wayne County, Ohio,80 259 260 271 274 died on 18 Jul 1920 in Oak Grove, Clackamas County, Oregon271 274 at age 75, and was buried on 20 Jul 1920 in Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon.274 275 Another name for Esther was Hester M. Corker.79 80

General Notes:
From Norah Pratton: (source not specified) "was a very spanky, independent woman who divorced the autocratic Henry and supported herself and the very young William by owning and operating a millinery."
----------------------------------------

I've often wondered why Esther would have moved from Cedar County, Iowa to Clackamas County, Oregon towards the end of her life. To my knowledge she never remarried after divorcing Henry Pierce sometime before 1880. I think the main reason for her move was probably her only son, William, who was married in Iowa in 1892 and had eventually moved to Oregon and was joined by his mother sometime between 1910 and 1920.

Both Esther and her married son had moved to Toledo, Tama County, Iowa by 1910, a distance of about 100 miles from Cedar County. I have no idea why they made this move because there were no family relatives living there. Perhaps it was to enhance the prospects of her son's occupation as a barber and perhaps it was to just get away from Cedar County where he ex-husband was buried.

By 1920, the married son and his family had moved to the Portland, Oregon area and Esther must have followed them there. By that time, both of Esther's parents were dead, her two younger brothers had moved to the Great Plains of South Dakota, and she had only one surviving sister that was living in the Cedar County, Iowa area. I'm guessing that she felt she had more connections with her son and his family in Oregon rather than her own surviving siblings. Thus the reasons for her relocating to Oregon sometime after 1910 where she eventually died in July 1920. Although her son and his wife can be found in the January 1920 US Census in Clackamas County, Oregon, I have not been able to find any record of Esther.

His obituary was published in the Springdale Index in Mar 1892 in Springdale, Cedar County, Iowa.

628 Died at the family home in Washington, D.C. Henry F. Pierce, aged 66 years .

The deceased will be remembered by many of the INDEX readers, first as a farmer in the Pedee neighborhood, and afterward as a clothing merchant in this place, and very many will be saddened by the news of his death. He leaves a wife and two children, the eldest about 14 years old, to feel the sad misfortune of his loss. He was born in Uniontown, Pennsylvania June 16, 1826.

196. Lillie Elizabeth Corker 80 259 276 277 278 279 280 281 282 283 (Catharine Anna Lightfoot65, Daniel20, William4, Daniel1) was born in Feb 1848 in , , Ohio80 259 279 284 and died on 25 Dec 1940285 at age 92. Another name for Lillie was Catharine Elizabeth Corker.79

General Notes:
Lillian's name seems to be at first Catherine, then she went by her middle name of Elizabeth, and then by 1873 when she was married, she was using the name Lillie, short for Lillian. I'm not sure what her true given name was, but it is apparent that during her adult years she always used the name of Lillie.

Her birth date is also somewhat of a mystery. The early census records all seem to point to Feb 1848 but beginning around 1895, she seemed to think that she was born in 1847.

General Notes:
Archibald seldom reported his age consistently. Based on the census records from 1860 through 1925, his birth year works out to range from 1854 to 1857. On the 1900 Federal census where one can usually expect an accurate month, year, and corresponding age, the enumerator made some major mistakes and his birth date was recorded as October 1805 with an age of 44. It is possible that the enumerator meant to write October 1855 which seems to be about in the middle of all the other possible dates and is probably the correct one.

"Iowa, Marriages, 1809-1992," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XJNC-6F6 : accessed 28 Sep 2012), Luke Corker in entry for Archie M. Corker and Lillie M. Roberts, 24 Mar 1881.

NOTE - Either the enumerator or Archibald or Millie apparently had difficulty in remembering the years of birth. The enumerator's handwriting is not perfectly clear but it seems obvious that he entered 1805 for Archibald instead of 1854 (or perhaps 1855) and 1866 for Millie instead of perhaps 1856 as a guess which fits with her age of 43.

Also note the name of John Burnett. While he may not be related, it was Thomas B. Burnett that married Archibald's first cousin, Elizabeth Lightfoot, in Cedar County, Iowa in 1868.
-------------------------------------------------------------

They had a residence in 1904 in , , South Dakota.


Archibald had moved his family to South Dakota in 1904 and his brother, Julius and family followed in 1906.

They appeared on the South Dakota State Census in 1905 in Hopper Township, Aurora County, South Dakota.

NOTE - The two daughters, Pearl and Agnes, were not listed with the parents for the 1915 census. Agnes was enumerated but her card number was 885, much different than the 244 through 247 for her parents and siblings. Her location was given only as 4th Ward with the city and county locations mistakenly left blank but I believe that she moved to Mitchell in Davison County near where her uncle Julius and his family had moved. Perhaps she moved there because of her teaching duties and the job market might have been better in Mitchell than Plankinton. She was single and still a teacher but apparently living on her own. For the 1925 state census, Agnes was living back with her parents. The older daughter, Pearl, probably was married before the 1915 census.

Also note that Archibald and Lillie provided a marriage date of 1873 which is not correct and they were married on 24 March 1881 in Cedar County, Iowa.

General Notes:
Did Ella have two or more nicknames or did Julius have more than one wife? Although several of her names found on documents are always the same, it is doubtful that Julius had more than one wife because of the South Dakota census cards which show a marriage date of 1885 on all those found so far. The 1900 Federal Census showed her name as "Sarah E.". The 1915 and 1925 census cards for Julius shows his wife's name as "Ella A.". Both the 1900 Federal census and the two state census record record her parent's birth locations as the same. Therefore, Sarah and Ella are probably the same person.

NOTE - The informant was "Binnie M. Ryan". Maybe this was a daughter; he was a widower so his wife was already dead.

The 1900 census showed that he was still single and living at home with his parents. Yet, when he died in 1910 the death certificate says he was a widower. What happened during those last 10 years of his life --- did he finally get married at around age 47, perhaps father one daughter, have his wife die, and then he died? Or is the death certificate wrong about his marital status. I can find no marriage record and so far have not located him in the 1910 census.

NOTE - Her son, George H. Gushard, was the informant.
--------------------------------------------------------

General Notes:
There is a problem with the marriage date to Gushard. Mary Elizabeth Lightfoot was enumerated as living with her parents for the 1860 census. Yet, supposedly she married Gushard about 1855 and gave birth to George Henry Gushard in 1856. It would be possible for her to have left her baby with the father or other relatives and move back with her parents in 1860. She then supposedly was remarried later that same year to James Oliver Alexander on 8 Nov 1860. The only documentation on any of this comes from a GEDCOM from Shirley Walter that had no source citations for any of the names or dates. If this marriage to either Gushard or Alexander proves false, then it affects all of the Gushard descendants in this database.

More info: there is an 1870 census record in Mifflin Township, Richland County, Ohio for James Alexandria and wife Mary. Living with them is a 14 year old George Gushet. The only problem is that Mary's age is off by 6 years.

The 1900 census for Mary's sister, Sarah, shows an Arthur Gushard living with Sarah and her husband and the relationship was noted as "Nephew". I'm sure it was meant to be a nephew to Sarah and not to her husband. Arthur was actually a son of George Gushard who was born to Mary in 1856 so technically Arthur was not even a nephew.

General Notes:
Amanda Yoha appeared on the 1850 census with her parents, Eli and Lavina Yoha . Her age was 4 thus giving a birth year of about 1845. A problem occurs on the 1870 Census of Mifflin Township, Richland County, Ohio when Amanda was listed as only 12 years old instead of the expected 24 years. This must be an enumerator error because the 24 year old Mary Amanda Yoha was supposedly already married to James Lightfoot and had already given birth to 3 children. If not an enumerator error then perhaps the parents named another daughter Amanda Yoha while the first one born in 1845 was actually Mary Amanda Yoha.

There is one marriage record dated 1862 between James Lightfoot and Margaret Yoha. It is likely that the transcription for the marriage record may have misspelled Mary Amanda's name as Margaret. One might think that it may be possible that James first married an older sister named Margaret who could be the mother of their first 3 children, Eva, William, and King. Then there is a 5 year gap until the next child was born in 1875. Perhaps during this time, James perhaps could have been remarried to the younger sister named Mary Amanda Yoha. However, the birth records for William and King clearly show the mother's name as Amanda so I am fairly confident that James had only one wife, Mary Amanda Yoha.

Update - 14 Mar 2013: The 1910 census record for their son, Millard, shows him living with his wife, son, and another person described as "Mother", Mary A. Wallace. But because the maiden name of Millard's wife is not known with any certainty, it may be possible that this Mary A. Wallace is the mother of his wife instead of his own mother. In all probability, Mary was remarried to a Wallace following the death of James Lightfoot.

Update - 18 Mar 2013: The 1900 census record shows a widowed Mary A. Wallace living with 2 sons. One is name Otto R. Lightfoot, born about 1876 in Ohio. The second son is named Walter L. Wallace, born about 1886 in Michigan. This data fits in well with the assumption that James Lightfoot died between 1877 and 1880 and that his wife, Mary A. Yoha, was remarried to Wallace with a son born in 1886.

644 Although there seems to be no birth records for Mary, she most likely was born in 1845 according to the 1850, 1870, and 1880 census records. Thus the gravestone's birth year of 1846 is probably incorrect.

Robert married Margaret Ann Millhouse,27 312 313 314 315 667 668 daughter of John Millhouse and Mary Ann Rheem, on 7 Jul 1862 in Chambersburg, Franklin County, Pennsylvania.312 314 315 669 Margaret was born on 23 Feb 1844 in , , Pennsylvania312 313 314 315 667 668 and died after 1 Jan 1920.

Marriage Notes:
Researcher Sandra Crane indicates the marriage date is actually 7 Jul 1868 instead of 7 Jul 1862. If that is true, then it may explain why their first daughter, Laura, born in 1863, was actually raised by her grandparents. Laura was never enumerated in any census as living with her parents.
----------------------------------------------

After giving birth to their first 2 children in Pennsylvania, Robert and Margaret moved to Richland County, Ohio around 1870 where two more children were born. At that same time, his brother, James Lightfoot, was also living in Richland County, Ohio. Within a period of about 4 years, they moved back to Franklin County, Pennsylvania where their remaining 5 children were born and raised.

NOTE - It is interesting that Margaret reported 9 total children as this number would include their first daughter, Laura, who was born illegitimate and raised by Margaret's parents. Of the 2 children reported as having already died, those would include James who had died as an infant in 1871 and John who had recently died in 1897.

Their daughter, Clara May Lightfoot's husband, Jacob Rhone, had just died in 1899. This is why the Rhone children were all living with their maternal grandparents. Clara was boarding in a house in Shippensburg, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania and was with her 5 month old daughter, Ruth Violet Rhone. She was remarried in 1904 to Charles Forsythe.
-------------------------------------

General Notes:
Her given name was either Margaret Anna or Anna Margaret.
-----------------------------------------------------

Margaret was enumerated twice in the 1920 US census: once apparently living by herself and a second time living with her married daughter, Clara, and her family. The first census shows Franklin County, Pennsylvania and the second shows nearby Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. In reality, both were in the city of Shippensburg which sits right on the boundary line between Franklin and Cumberland counties.

NOTE - Sarah (Saide) indicated that she had zero children yet records show one daughter, Yetta, and one son, William. However, the zeros written on the census record appear to have been written after the enumerator made his entries, are written lighter than all the other entries, and the two zeros are written as is they are connected or writted together. In addition, the enumerator left out the birth month and year for John as well as the birth locations for his parents. I suspect that the two zeros were a tally added by a supervisor because the enumerator left out this information as well and the supervisor just entered zeros to have something in that column.

Also note the name of Arthur Gushard listed as nephew. He apparently was the son of George Henry Gushard who was the son of Sarah's sister, Mary E. Lightfoot. Technically, Arthur was the grandnephew of Sarah and not the nephew.

Marriage Notes:
John L. Gantz was born in York County, Pennsylvania in 1834. At the age of 3, he was taken with the family to a small community of Woodbury in Morrow County, Ohio. John grew to manhood here and on 11 Sep 1856, he married Margaret Rule. Five children were born here, then the family moved to Bourbon, Indiana, where one child was born. Then they moved to a farm 2 miles southwest of Argos, Indiana, where the land had to be cleared, and the house built. Later a few acres at a time were added until he had acquired 22 acres. Here four more children were born. Tragedy struck during the process of clearing the land, when in 1881, a daughter, Ida, age 10 years got too close to stumps that were burning. Her dress caught fire and she burned to death.

Grandfather Gantz spent much time working as a carpenter in the summer time and during the other times he worked at the David and Asher Boyce saw mill. He built his barn in 1876 and also, what is now very rare, the above ground type of cave where he stored fruits and vegetables. He was noted in the community as a good base singer and was a member of the Methodist Church choir for 30 or more years.

Visitors were always made welcome at the farm, especially in the summer time for the grandchildren, with fish to be caught in the creek running through the barn lot, the smell of hams and bacon cured in the old fashioned smokehouse (and chickens for the minister on Sunday, who made a point of informing Grandmother in advance of his coming) and always the blackberries and sweet corn in August.

I cannot remember of ever seeing Grandmother (Margaret Rule) Gantz angry; she also was a very hard worker. At the age of 76, Grandfather John Gantz suffered a stroke of apoplexy which gradually affected his sight until the age of 78, he was completely blind but they stayed on the farm until 1919 when old age and infirmities compelled them to leave. Grandmother died at the age of 84 in the home of a daughter, Hannah, and Grandfather died six years later at the age of 90 in the home of his son, Frank. The are buried in Gilead Cemetery about 6 miles southwest of Argos, Indiana.

NOTE - The oldest daughter, Martha Jane, is not shown at home in the 1880 Census. She would have been about 21 years old and had moved to Reno, Kansas. I don't yet have any info to show if she was married or why she went to Kansas. Her uncle, Henry Rule had also moved his family to Reno, Kansas so maybe she went to be near him. Also gone from the household in 1880 is the oldest son, Franklin, who would have been about 22 years old. He was living with another family and working on his own.

NOTE - I can not tell for sure who the parents of Fern Gantz were with only a description of "Granddaughter". With a surname of Gantz, one would expect her father to be one of the sons but I can find no record of any of them have a daughter named Fern nor any reason why their daughter would have to be living with the grandparents. Another thought is that Fern may be an illegitimate daughter born to one of the daughters. And the fact that the 31 year old Eva was still living at home and listed as single makes her a prime suspect to be the mother of Fern. Several other daughters were married but their exact marriage dates are not yet known. It may be possible that any one of these daughters lost their husband through divorce or death and Fern was sent to be raised by the grandparents. There just is not enough information to know for sure exactly who Fern Gantz was.

Her obituary was published in the Bourbon News-Mirror on 6 Nov 1919 in Bourbon, Marshall County, Indiana.

Margaret Rule, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Rule, was born November 22, 1834 in Richland County, Ohio. Here she grew to maturity, and on September 11, 1856, was united in marriage to John Gantz. In 1865, they moved to Indiana. For many years she with her devoted husband lived on their farm southwest of Argos, Indiana.

Early in life she joined the Lutheran church, but afterwards united with the Methodist Episcopal church in Argos, Indiana, and remained a faithful member of the same to the time of her death.

During the last few years of her earthly life she was in declining health and for more than a year previous to her departure she was confined to her bed. But she bore all of her suffering with the patience and fortitude that is characteristic of one who has a true faith in God.

She departed this life from the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. B. Smith, at South Bend, Saint Joseph County, Indiana, October 25, 1919, aged 84 years, 11 months and 3 days.

She is survived by her husband, three daughters, Mrs. Simon McGriff, Mrs. J. B. Smith, of South Bend, Saint Joseph County, Indiana, Mrs. Eva McAfee, of Argos, three sons, Frank, of Argos, John, of Plymouth, George or Pleona, Kansas, 32 grandchildren and 31 grandchildren (sic).

(Matilda was widowed and living with 2 sons and 1 granddaughter.)

NOTE - The surname of the granddaughter is very difficult to read. It appear to be Deohrn but there is a gap between the "Deor" and the "hn" with what appears to be an erasure. Trying to figure out who the parents would be is equally difficult. Assuming that the father must be one of Matilda's son because of the granddaughter's surname, that narrows the choices to James, John, or Edward. James was married in 1892 and since the granddaughters birth year was in 1889, he could be the father. John and Edward would have been far too young to be the father of Maudie. Based on the birth location of Indiana for the father of the granddaughter, James remains a likely candidate to be the father of the granddaughter.

Another possibility is that the granddaughter could be an illegitimate child of any of the daughters. Based on the birth location of Ohio for the mother of the granddaughter, either Alice, Mary, or Anna could be the mother. There just is not enough information to know for sure who the parents of the granddaughter could have been.

Here is the story told to me by Florus Lightfoot, my grandfather and son of Jacob and Nancy. They were both born in Ohio. Nancy was engaged to Jacob's brother, Levi. Both boys entered the army to serve in the Civil War. (I think the first Ohio volunteers). Levi died of measles during the war. I have a picture of the two boys in uniforms. Jacob brought home Levi's personal effects which included a tintype of Nancy. I have it.

(Regarding a question of why Jacob Lightfoot moved from Williams County, Ohio to Mecosta County, Michigan)

Brian - I can't say for sure why Jacob came to Mecosta Twp, but I remember a story of Jacob Lightfoot and Haman Amos [presumably a brother of Nancy Ann Amos] scouting as far as Cadillac then coming back to settle in Mecosta County.

Lumbering was HUGE. Most of the men worked in the lumber camps at some time or other. Everyone was a farmer but that area had mostly subsistance farms. They supplemented their incomes by working other jobs

One very large farm that hired day workers (other men in the neighborhood) was the Ladner farm. William Ladner owned a lumbering company also. There was a door and sash company in Big Rapids early on, fed by the timber being harvested in West Michigan. The Muskegon river runs through Mecosta Twp and was the 'avenue' for transporting the logs.

Grand Rapids became the 'furniture city' because of the availability of local materials and Chicago was rebuilt, after the big fire, in large part with lumber from Michigan.

Who knows just why they came, but people were the same then as now with family squabbles and intrigue.

Here is the story told to me by Florus Lightfoot, my grandfather and son of Jacob and Nancy. They were both born in Ohio. Nancy was engaged to Jacob's brother, Levi.

Both boys entered the army to serve in the Civil War. (I think the first Ohio volunteers ).
Levi died of measles during the war. I have a picture of the two boys in uniforms.

Jacob brought home Levi's personal effects which included a tintype of Nancy. I have it. Jacob and Nancy (and I think her brother Haman) set out for Michigan in 1870. They were married on the way in Casco, Michigan. They came to Mecosta County and took a farm not far from my husbands great-grandparents, the Ladners.

Jacob died from injuries in a stump pulling machine accident. I have an obit. Nancy died in Lansing, Michigan while living with her son, Ceylon. My mother lived with her for a time so knew her well.

There is a geneology floating around that names the wrong mother of Jacob B. His mother was Mary Ann Hughes. Apparently, William left her at some point and married a 'Miss Lee'. But Mary Ann was the mother of his children.

Do not hesitate to ask questions. I spent much time listening to stories of my Mother, grandfather, aunts and uncles. I have many cousins and misc. relatives living in Michigan. First cousins and also the children, etc of Jacob and Nancy's other sons.

I hope to help.

Inger married Burdette Spencer,372 373 son of Orlando Spencer and Lois Gray, on 10 Apr 1862 in Ottawa, LaSalle County, Illinois.107 373 Burdette was born on 12 Sep 1828 in Mohawk, Herkimer County, New York,107 112 373 died on 21 Nov 1916 in Elmira, Chemung County, New York107 112 at age 88, and was buried in Nov 1916 in Elmira, Chemung County, New York.112

Marriage Notes:
E-mail from Marjorie R. Tracy:
Inger Eliza (Emma Lide) Lightfoot met Burdette Spencer when he was a soldier. He had gone to Illinois and had enlisted in 1861. They were married in Elmira, Chemung, New York on 10 Apr 1862 which is where they ultimately settled. After the Civil War, Burdette brought Emma to Elmira for about 4 years, where their first son, Burr Leland, was born in 1867. They moved to Logansport, Cass County, Indiana, which is where my husband's grandfather Earnest Lightfoot Spencer was born in 1874. After Burdette died in 1916, "Emma" moved to Lily Dale, New York to the Spiritualist colony there and lived out her life.

Burdette and Emma had two sons, one of whom, Burr Leland, died in a fall from a bridge construction site. Their other son, Earnest Lightfoot Spencer, was my husband's grandfather.

There is a strange coincidence in the names of her son, "Earnest Lightfoot Spencer", and a son of her brother, Edward Levi Lightfoot, whose son 's name was "Ernest Spencer Lightfoot". Now, according to the book "The Sloopers", Edward Levi Lightfoot married Minnie Belle Burget in 1877, and his son, Ernest Spencer Lightfoot, would have been born well down the line, as he was the 8th of 12 children. So, there is a good possibility that Edward either named his son directly after Earnest Spencer, or the Ernest might be from someone who both Emma and Edward appreciated and named their sons for; plus possibly giving his son the last name his sister now had.

236. Edward Levi Lightfoot 107 108 109 112 279 374 (Levi Edward74, William22, William4, Daniel1) was born in 1848 in , , Illinois108 109 375 and died on 8 Dec 1917107 112 at age 69. Another name for Edward was Levi Lightfoot.375

General Notes:
There is some question about Edward's name: was it Edward Levi Lightfoot or Levi Edward Lightfoot like his father? It would seem logical that his name was a "junior" like his father's name. But perhaps the parents did something strange and reversed the first and middle names of the father thereby giving the son the name of Edward Levi Lightfoot. Or perhaps we have the name of the father mixed up and his real name was Edward Levi Lightfoot.

There is another question about Edward Levi Lightfoot's birth year in that the census record for 1870 is for "Levi" Lightfoot which was Edward's middle name and also the first name of his father. He may have gone by his middle name but this age of 22 as shown on the census record would place his birth year as about 1848 which is very close to the 14 Feb 1849 as suggested by researcher Marjorie R. Tracy. This 1870 census record for Levi Lightfoot would have to be for the younger Edward Levi Lightfoot because his father was about 62 years old at the time and believed to be living in Chicago, Illinois at the time. Unfortunately, the census of 1880 in which Edward's age is stated as 29 instead of the expected 31 or so.

To add to the confusion, the 1870 census from Des Moines County, Iowa shows a Sarah Lightfoot, age 23, living with the younger Levi Lightfoot, age 22. Was this his older sister who was born in 1845 in Illinois? Perhaps, but the census record gives her birth location as Indiana instead of Illinois. Unfortunately that same census record gives the young Levi's birth location as Iowa instead of Illinois. His father did not move to Iowa until after 1870 so it is doubtful that the younger Levi was born in Iowa. The younger Levi eventually married Minnie Burget in 1877 in Burlington, Des Moines County, Iowa.

One more thought about all of this: the older father, Levi Edward Lightfoot, supposedly married a Sarah A. Holden while he was still married to Edna F. <Unknown> in 1866 in Illinois. He was a mormon preacher at the time and may have been practicing bigamy. Therefore, of all his children born past 1866, it is impossible to know if the mother was Edna F. <Unknown> or Sarah A. Holden. However, I have a thought that perhaps this marriage in 1866 to Sarah was actually the marriage of the young son, Edward Levi Lightfoot who usually went by his middle name of Levi. If this were true, then the younger Levi was married in 1866 to Sarah A. Holden when he was about 17 or 18 years old. Perhaps the marriage did not last and he was remarried in 1877 to Minnie Burget/Burchett. This would also mean that his father did NOT practice bigamy and that Edna F. <Unknown> was his second and last wife. In Sep 2010 I have requested a copy of the marriage record from Henderson County, Illinois but it is not known in advance if these records will show the ages of the bride and groom. (Brian L. Lightfoot)
-----------------------------------------------

Edward's age was never consistently reported on the various US census records. The age of his 2nd wife, Minnie Belle Burget/Burchett, was always consistent.
----------------------------------------------

The family was living in or near Minneapolis at the time of his death in 1917. His wife, Minnie, is buried in Sunset Memorial Park but that did not open until 1922 so the exact location of his burial is not known.

Marriage Notes:
Edward Levi Lightfoot & Minnie Belle Burchett
About 1907 the family moves to Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Edward passes away in 1917 probably in Minneapolis.
Minnie passes away on 3 Nov 1939 in Minneapolis.

The library was unable to locate an obituary for Edward Levi. His burial is unknown. The Sunset Memorial Park was started in 1922 according to their website.

I recently went to Wayne Co. for further research on the Lightfoot Family. The Library & the records administration were very helpful. Wayne County has microfilmed a lot of their records(including wills & estates) & were moved to the administration building. (located 3 blocks from the courthouse)

I am hoping in the near future to return to Wayne Co. & continue my research of the Lightfoot Family.

General Notes:
from Marjorie R. Tracy:
March 2003:
After Charles' wife died in 1883, his sister, Caroline, went to live with him and care for his house and children.

April 2003:
Now, on Charley Avon Lightfoot, there is a contradiction in data. The Slooper book indicates that he was born on 4 Mar 1853, which would match your source [on the birth date of 4 Mar 1853 submitted by Kirk D. Sykes on World Family Tree Vol. 051, Tree #1106] who MAY have gotten his information from the same book. However, Charley's sister's Bible (Inger Eliza "Emma Lide" Spencer) lists him as being born on 3 Mar 1856. So that 's why I went with the 1856 information...it was from the family Bible. That doesn't mean that there weren't errors in either the Bibles (if they were gotten years later and then filled in from memory), or from census takers. Both have been known to happen.
---------------------------------------------------

There is a gravestone for a "C. A. Lightfoot" in Oakland Cemetery, Clinton, Clinton County, Iowa. The gravestone shows a birth date of 3 Mar 1854 and a death date of 10 Sep 1944. While these are not the exact dates provided by researcher Marjorie R. Tracy, they are extremely close and very likely could be the correct person.

"Yes, I can help with location on Levi and Daisy, Levi Is buried in Lot 9 Row 15 Grave 44, it says he was buried 17 Jan 1900, age 83, for Daisy it says Lot 9 Row 16 Grave 43, buried 13 March 1905, age 22 years old. I do know that if they died in Omaha that the Douglas County Historical Society would have there death records and also other information which I can check out for you if you want, if you make it back here please call me at 402-991-9922 I will meet you at the cemetery and show you there graves, this section they are buried at is one of the oldest parts of the cemetery also was for the people that had little money, the only reason I ran across his name was because I'm trying to find all the Civil War Vets buried there, so far 40, possible 20 more, and Levi Lightfoot comes up as a possible but I don't think it is your Levi, he would have been too old, this cemetery as I said is very old and hardly anyone has family to help keep it nice, only me on a volunteer basis, I hope this helped a little once I find more I will let you know, what part of California you from, I was raised in Salinas, Ca. up by Monterey. Have a good night,...Jason"

-------------------------------------------

General Notes:
Lakeville Cemetery reported in Mar 2013 that there is no record of a burial for Rebecca Jones or Lightfoot. This contradicts some information given by other researchers even though they provide no source citations for their claims. But record keeping has been sporadic through the years so it is possible that she is buried there but no record supports it and there is no visible gravestone.
------------------------------

So far there has been no evidence that she had a middle name of Morningstar. Other Lightfoot descendants in the Saint Joseph and Marshall counties area claim that she never had the name of Morningstar and was known only as Rebecca Lightfoot, wife of Hiram Jones. This may be a case of only the immediate family known "nickname" of which no one else outside of her family had any knowledge.

Additional information about the name "Morningstar" from Linda Casper (email 2/25/2013):

If it helps any I was told her name was Morning Star when I was just a little girl of 10. To give you an idea I will be 50 this year. When I started out my tree thats the only name I had. Eventually I.found her name was Rebecca after visiting the Berrien county court house in Michigan.

So Morning Star (I always seen wrote that way since little) was what she was.

I talked to another cousin who was a Platz and died last year and his daddy was a great grandson of Rebecca. He said she had black long hair and walked with a cane - and his dad said you would not want to get in front her. My grandpa which was a great grandson of hers would use his cane in the same way.

-----------------------------------------

Something happened to the marriage of Hiram and Rebecca Jones after 1870 and I'm not sure if he and Rebecca were separated, divorced, or if Hiram had disappeared or died. Their family is not found together in the 1880 census with the exception of Isaiah Jones who was married just two years prior to the 1880 census. Living with Isaiah and his new wife were his youngest sister, Arilla, at age 17 and his younger brother, Thomas, at age 13.

Isaiah's younger sister, Phoebe, who was married in 1877, is found in the 1880 census living with her husband and has one child of her own by 1880.

This means that for the period of the 1880 census, the following family members were not to be found:
Hiram Jones
Rebecca Jones
Mary Ann Jones
Sarah E. Jones
Harriet Jones
William H. Jones
Jacob Jones
Lydia Marie Jones
Noah Jones.

Of those names, Rebecca reappeared in the 1900 census along with Thomas and Noah. Harriet supposedly married about 1894, and Lydia married about 1883. On the 1900 census for Rebecca she indicated only 8 children of hers were still alive. The number written for her total children is ambiguous and looks like the number 19 or 17 but is probably 11 for that is all the names that can be accounted.

This 1900 census for Rebecca does indicate that her husband, Hiram, died before 1900 and that she had already lost at least 3 of her children by that time. I have no specific information about any of those children, their names, or how they died.

249. Isaac Lightfoot 9 (Daniel78, John23, William4, Daniel1) was born about 1830 and died after 1 Jun 1840.

General Notes:
Isaac's name is not listed with his parents for the 1850 Census of Kosciusko County, Indiana. If this son actually did exist, then he would have been about 18 years old in 1850 and may have been married or living by himself at that time. There is this one death record for Kosciusko County, Indiana where his parents were known to have been living in 1850. If this death record is for their son, then he died just about the same time as the census was being taken.

Name: LIGHTFOOT, Isaac
Year: 1850
Gender: M
Age: 18
County: KOSCIUSKO CO.
State: IN
Cause of Death: Inflammation BRAIN
Occupation: Farmer

In addition, I have found a separate census listing for an Isaac Lightfoot but it does not give his age. His parents were living in Jackson Township whereas this listing is from Franklin Township. This is either a different family or it could be the correct Isaac who was living by himself at an age of about 18.

General Notes:
If the three census records for 1850, 1860, and 1870 are all for the same John Lightfoot, then his age is inconsistently reported on each record. He appears to be a poor farm laborer with only minimal property values. I can find no further census records beyond 1870. (Brian L. Lightfoot)

General Notes:
Daniel Lightfoot b. 1796 was my g-g-g-grandfather. His daughter Jane was married to John Cook and they had a son John Vernon, born in Wabash County, Indiana in September 1851. The family moved to Cass County, Michigan about 1854. I found Jane with her birth family in both the 1840 and 1850 census reports and with John Cook and their family in 1860. Currently I am going through family photos and memorabilia left to me by my parents and grandparents. Trying to link appropriate photos and certificates to my genealogy files. I know that I have photos of Daniel's grandson John V. and Sarah Cook with their adult children (taken prior to 1920).

Thanks for posting this information. If you would like more information on Jane's family I would be glad to share what I have.

Sincerely,

Marriage Notes:
I do not yet have all the descendents of Jacob Harpster and Susannah Light foot Smith identified. Emanuel is their only direct offspring. I do have the following with respect to him. Emanuel married Ruth Donaldson in Wayne County on May 17, 1859. They had four children, two of which died in infancy, and then H. C. Harpster and Charles H. Harpster . Emanuel's obituary for September 15, 1923 indicated that he had one grandson and one great-grandson when he died. The grandson is Warren D. Harpster and the great-grandson is Richard Harpster (small world, but that is not me). His obituary also indicates that Charles H. lived in Santa Barbara. Charles H. apparently did not have any children. Mary, Emanuel's wife, died September 20, 1896 in Indiana.

His obituary was published in the Porter County Vidette on 18 Apr 1878.

Died, at his residence four miles east of Hebron, of Lung fever, on the 14th inst., Mr. Alvin Cornell. He was a man who was highly esteemed by all who knew him. He was in every sense of the word a gentleman. He was among the early settlers of Boone township, and shared the privations of a frontier life. He was kind and hospitable in all his relations in life, and his loss will be felt in the community and in the Christian church, of which he was a member. He had been suffering from rheumatism for several years past, but has been able lately to look after his business and was in Hebron only a few days before his death.

Since she is not listed on the 1870 census but is listed on the 1880 census, she was either missed on the 1870 census or was born shortly after the 1870 census.

They appeared on the Federal Census in Jun 1880 in Wood Township, Carroll County, Missouri.

General Notes:
SAMUEL G. LIGHTFOOT
We are pleased to incorporate in these abiding chronicles of Umatilla county the epitome of the life of this worthy and energetic pioneer, in fact a pioneer of the pioneers, whose energy and wisdom have ever wrought in the front ranks for the advancement and betterment of his fellows, clearing the path for them to follow into these regions where nature has so lavishly bestowed her wealth, but to unlock which required the skill, the force, the courage and the endurance of which Mr. Lightfoot is so richly possessed.

He was born in Holmes County, Ohio, to John and Mary Lightfoot, on 22 Jul 1827, and there lived until he was fourteen years of age, when he removed with his parents to Horse Prairie, Indiana, where his two brothers, John and Eli, still live near Hebron. This prairie received its name from the fact of a man who was caught in a fierce blizzard, killing his horse, and after disemboweling him crawling into the carcass until the storm had subsided. Here our subject resided on a farm until 9 Mar 1850, when he started to the Pacific coast with ox teams from Valparaiso County, Indiana. Six months were consumed on the road, landing in Portland October 12th, the same year. Their trip was without molestation from Indians or accident, except the loss of one steer. They used three yoke of oxen to each wagon, thus giving their stock freedom from overwork. He soon left Portland for Oregon City, where he did his first work in the territory, running a wheelbarrow on a wing dam at the mouth of the Clackamas, for five dollars per day and board. Going from here to Salem, he made rails for fifteen dollars per thousand and burned charcoal, clearing up over five hundred dollars, when he went to making brick at one hundred dollars per month, continuing until harvest. During this harvest he took a contract for Cutting and threshing thirty acres of wheat for half of the crop. He and his partner cradled it and did the threshing by means of Cayuses tramping it out. His half amounted to one hundred and fifty bushels and as it was worth only fifty cents per bushel he stored it until 1853, when he sold it at four dollars per bushel. In the fall of 1851 he went to Yreka, California, and engaged in placer mining, where he remained for five months, cleaning up four dollars per day from a little rocker. Returning in the spring to Salem, he went to farming for fifty dollars per month until 1853, when he made a visit to Indiana, leaving Portland on 5 Jan 1853, and going via the Isthmus route. After one year he came to Salem over the old plain route, again making it in three months and nine days. The Sioux Indians stole their stock on the Loup river. When he landed in Oregon his first work was in the Sailor mines in Josephine, where he remained but a short time. Succeeding this he engaged in packing from Salem to Yreka mines, using five ponies. After two trips he bought half interest in a mule train and freighted until the winter of 1855, when the Rogue River Indian war broke out and he leased his train to the government at four dollars a day per head for use in the war. Returning to Salem until the next spring, he bought the other half interest in the train, which he afterward sold to the government for four hundred dollars per head, including all accoutrements, taking his pay in script which was worth fifty cents on the dollar. He now worked at draying in Salem for forty dollars per month, and in the spring of 1857 bought the stage line running from Portland to Corvallis, known as Oregon Stage Company, and operated it until 1861, during which time he was one of the drivers. Here they used the first Concord stage coach that ever made "a track in Oregon mud," quoting Mr. Lightfoot's words. It cost eleven hundred and forty dollars laid down in Portland. Later he sold to a competing line and came to The Dalles, freighting for a time and then returned to Salem, where he was engaged in farming until 1871, the date of his advent into this county. Here he took government land two miles south from Vinson, where he still lives and owns three hundred and twenty acres, which he farms to barley, raising some stock.

Mr. Lightfoot was married in Salem, on 22 Apr 1858, to Miss Maria Laura Salisbury, a native of Illinois, being born in old Fort Dearborn, where Chicago now stands. She is a grandniece to Marcus Whitman, and her mother was Eliza Bagley; her father, Stephen M. Salisbury, was lieutenant in the Black Hawk war, and held a commission from the governor of Massachusetts. To them have been born the following children: Mary L., Mrs. C. F. Goff, of Patrolia, California; Laura E., Mrs. James Nelson, of Butter Creek; Maria J., Mrs. C. O. Bowman, of Milton; Lydia E., Mrs. C. A. Frazier, of Pendleton; Virginia, Mrs. D. William Chapman, of Butter Creek; John M., at Butter Creek, married; Samuel Charles, at home with parents; Thomas S. and Joseph H., both deceased. By way of reminiscence we note that Mr. Lightfoot owns a rifle used by Mr. William Harris in the Cayuse War of 1847.

Our subject has been quite active in political matters, always laboring for the welfare of the, while he has frequently been called to fill public office, as county commissioner, justice of the peace, school clerk and director, being in service for the people almost continuously since coming to the county. He is at this golden time of his life hale and hearty and beloved by all with the rich memories of a life well spent and a merited reward at hand to enjoy.

----------------------------------------

During the Bannock war, John Whitman Salisbury (brother to Laura Maria Salisbury), and his brother, Harold, joined John Sperry's company of Oregon Mounted Volunteer Infantry and took part in the battle of Willow Springs, which lasted from one o'clock in the afternoon of July 6 to daylight on the morning of 7 Jul 1878. Forty-six men in this company were pitted against eight hundred Indians, and after this long struggle were compelled to retreat, carrying their wounded in a wagon. Only twenty-two were left to cover the retreat. At daybreak the little band of brave men were met by Major Throckmorton's body of regulars, who precipitated a hasty retreat among the red skins. During the battle the brother Harold was shot through the right thigh and also wounded in his left foot, but still managed to escape the savages. His horse was shot from under him at the beginning of the fight. Our subject went through the whole struggle without a scratch, excepting one nail bruised with a bullet; he also received three bullet holes in his clothing. He still owns the guns used by him and his brother. During the next winter he was elected captain of Company E, Second Regiment of the Third Brigade of the state militia, a company formed from the settlers on Butter creek for protection from the Indians. Mr. S. G. Lightfoot was first lieutenant, Harvey Elliott second. The company ceased to exist because of failure to meet for drill.

Dec 2010 Email Inquiry to Kathy Doherty regarding the "Lightfoot Place" at Vinson:

Nancy Doherty Oppenheimer:
I doubt if the Vinson flood went up to the Lightfoot place...because that wall of water came arolund the bend in the road by the barn, crashed through the wood/coal hole alongside the Vinson garage, went through the first basement under the garage and into the basement under the house, tossed a cast iron stove into the middle of the floor, flung a cabinet full of the summer's canning of peaches, pears, applesauce and cherries, broke the glass jars and crashed it all into the middle of the room. Meanwhile, or during, I should say, the water kept rising up the basement stairs. The stairs came straight up, turned and on up into the main floor of the house. When the water got up around the turn and on the last step before coming into the house, I got the 3 boys and we went up to the top step with a loaf of bread (Wonder bread, I can remember the red dotted package) and said Hail Marys. I will get my memory in gear and write up the Vinson flood and send it to you, but don't hold your breath til I get it done.

Nancy talked to her brother Pat and came up with "So, you can tell Brian Lightfoot the real story that happened in 1912."

Pat Doherty:
Now for Pat's remembering:The Lightfoots' home was up the canyon a little ways, canyon called Rancheree; there was no water up there, they had to pack water up for washing, drinking, etc... so after a while, the wife convinced them to move down to the field; they hitched up some horses and drug the house down to the field. in 1912, Frank Chapman realized a flood was coming, so he jumped on his horse and rode down to the Nelson place to warn them. Jimmy Nelson ran over to his barn and the only horse he had was a stallion, so he grabbed some reins and jumped onto the horse bareback and rode down to warn the Lightfoots. In later years when he was recounting the incident, he said he"rode the stud to beat the flood." He shouted at the Lightfoots to "get out, get away from here, there's a flood coming!" Sure enough, the flood washed the house away. After that, Grandfather bought that land. Pat said that "old man Nelson" was married to a lightfoot, so the people who lived at the Lightfoot place were his mother and father-in-law. I don't know if "old man Nelson" refers to Jimmy Nelson or another Nelson.

Some time ago, someone asked Pat something about the Lightfoots and he referred them to Marie Kopp who knew the "rest of the story."

Brian --- Marie Kopp is still alive. If you are interested in contacting her, I'll help get her contact information for you.

He appeared on the Federal Census on 28 Jan 1850 in , Marion County, Oregon Territory.

Samuel Lightfoot...24..MI
(Living as a boarder in the Savage family house.)

NOTE - I am not positive if this is the correct person or not but I believe that it probably correctly shows Samuel as he traveled from Indiana towards Portland, Oregon. This census record is somewhat difficult to read. Samuel is staying with John Savage, age 26, Rhoda Savage, age 19, and George Savage, age 21. Also staying in the same dwelling were Henry Richard (or Bichers ?), age 33, a carpenter from Virginia. There are a pair of quotation marks for his birth location which would indicate the same state as the previous line in which "Mich" was entered but this should have been Ohio instead of Michigan. If his birth date was 22 Jul 1827, then his age should have been 22 instead of 24. (Brian L. Lightfoot)

(Living with wife at home of youngest son, Samuel, and his wife.)


He was buried at the Pioneer Park Cemetery in Pendleton, Umatilla County, Oregon after 1 Nov 1912.

I talked with the Olney cemetery again (re: where Samuel and Laura might be buried) and he said that the only other cemetery that might have them would be Pioneer Park. The story is that in the 1950's the graves connected to family were relocated to Olney except a few who did not have family to claim them. These graves drove the lawn mower guy crazy enough that he actually just moved the stones. When it was discovered he couldn't remember where he had taken them from. So a lot of sites were lost. He said that even today whenever they dig in that park they uncover grave stones under the turf.

----------------------------------------

July 2009. I visited Pioneer Park Cemetery and was just flabbergasted at what the city of Pendleton did to this once historic cemetery: they have turned it into a pubic park and children's playground with gravestones sticking up out of the ground just feet away from picnic tables and children's play equipment. The vast majority remains grass with about 3 or 4 gravestones randomly appearing at locations throughout the park. At one corner of the cemetery, a wooden playground structure was built complete with a wooden fence around the area. There is a paved footpath that runs along the perimeter of the play area. There is one large gravestone still standing less than 10 feet away from the playground. (Brian Lightfoot)

LIGHTFOOT, John
Date and Place of Birth: 7/11/1833, Ohio
Date and Place of Death: 1/17/1920, Porter County
Age at Death: 86
Burial: Hebron Cemetery, Hebron
Father: John Lightfoot
Mother: Mary Griffy
Mother's Place of Birth: Ohio

The "Porter County Death Index, 1884-1927" database at http://www.rootsweb.com/~innwigs/index.html lists the mother of John Lightfoot as "Mary Griffy, born in Ohio" instead of the expected "Mary Shreve, born in Pennsylvania". I don't know if this is just a transcription error in the records of if the family informant for John's Death Certificate didn't really know the maiden name of his mother who died when he was about 10 years old. His father remarried to Atha Ann Walters also from Pennsylvania.

General Notes:
This is purely speculation on my part but the 1850 Census of Michigan City, La Porte County, Indiana shows an Ellen Lightfoot, age 20, with a birth location of Ohio. What is interesting about this is that she is living in a "hotel" and the hotel keepers are George Shrieve (spelled on the census as Shreeve) along with his wife, Orrilla, and their three children all of whom were born in Pennsylvania except for the youngest child. The possible connection is that Ellen's mother was Mary Schrieve. The surname has been spelled in many variations such as Shreve, Schreve, Schrieve, Shrieve, etc. It is believed that Mary Schrieve's father was Samuel Schrieve so perhaps this hotel-keeper George Shrieve might be closely related. Is it possible that Ellen was staying with Shrieve family relatives at the hotel? Or she could have just been in transit on the day of the census, 17 Aug 1850 and is not related to the hotel keepers?

NOTE - If her birth date was 6 May 1835, then her age should have been 15 instead of 20. I doubt if a 15 year old female would be living un-accompanied in a hotel so I doubt if this is the correct Ellen Lightfoot. Perhaps her birth date in not correct.

NOTE - Emma had indicated a total of 8 children with 6 still alive. I know of only 7 total names so there might be a missing one that died early in infancy. Of the 2 children that would have died before the 1900 census, it is highly probably that Ella had already died because she was not listed with the family in the 1880 census when she would have been about 12 years old. The other name probably be the infant that died early. (Brian L. Lightfoot)

General Notes:
There is a gravestone for a Leander S. Lightfoot and Mary M. Lightfoot at the Wakenda Baptist Church Cemetery in Carroll County, Missouri but his birth and death dates are 1887-1963. This is probably a son or grandson of this Leander who went to Missouri. Photograph of the gravestone by Cindy Lightfoot-Barnes, photo #X0025.

Also the following census record is probably not the correct Leander Lightfoot because the age is not correct and the parents' birth locations are not correct:

There is a record of a Leander Lightfoot who served with Company C of the 5th Indiana Infantry (or probably Cavalry) in the Civil War. The book "The History of Porter County, Indiana" on page 119 indicates the following deaths from the Civil War: "Fifth Cavalry: Leander Lightfoot, Marrowbone, 26 May 1863"
----------------------------------------

Information about the Civil War battles around Marrowbone

After the first wave of Morgan's 1st Brigade crossed the Cumberland, Morgan choose about fifteen of Captain Tom Quirk's Scouts and a few of Col. R. C. Morgan's command to reconnoiter west of Burkesville. The objective was to deflect attention of the 3,000 Union soldiers camped at Marrowbone, commanded by General Edward H. Hobson away from Morgan's 2nd Brigade crossing of the Cumberland.

The Confederate cavalrymen left the Courthouse Square in Burkesville and galloped out the Glasgow Road toward the Union camp. After engaging Union pickets, the scouts were joined by Confederate Col. W. W. Ward's 9th Tennessee Cavalry and supported by Col. J. W. Grigsby's 6th Kentucky Cavalry.

In this area, Morgan hid his men in an ambush and surprised the head of a 300-man Yankee cavalry column with rifle and artillery fire. The Yanks quickly turned their mounts and spurred their horses in retreat back down the road. With a whoop, the rebels tore after the bluecoats.

The ensuing route raised a cloud of dust. This prevented the southerners from seeing a regiment of Northern infantry which had formed in the line of battle.

One of Quirk's scouts, spotting the enemy through the haze, grabbed General Morgan's horse reins and stopped the charge. The Yanks fired a volley into the rebels at short range. The shots so surprised Maj. William P. Elliott and he was temporarily unhorsed. In the exchange of fire, the Confederates sustained the loss of two, mortally wounded and two others slightly wounded. Captain Tom Quirk received a wound to his left wrist that was so severe that his rein arm was broken and he had to return to Tennessee to recover. Federal losses were 5 killed and 15 wounded.

This small encounter with the Yanks took Morgan's chief scout out of action for the Great Raid. Quirk was the officer who rescued Colonel Duke from the Rolling Fork River during the Christmas Raid in 1862. Two days later at Tebbs Bend of Green River, the Confederates will pay a great price for poorly scouting a strong Union position. Morgan was beginning his thousand mile raid into Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio without his "eyes and ears."

Civil War Camp at Marrowbone

Both Union and Confederate troops used Marrowbone as a camp several times during the Civil War. In mid February 1863, Federal 1st Kentucky Cavalrymen under Col. Frank Wolford encamped at Marrowbone. During the spring of 1863, detachments of at least three of Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan's regiments, under Col. D. Howard Smith, Col. A. R. Johnson, and Col. D. W. Chenault, respectively, operated in and around Marrowbone and Mud Camp Ford, capturing a mill and operating it for the rebel army.

In June 1863, Gen. Edward H. Hobson was placed in charge of a Union camp at Marrowbone. Rumors were afloat that the notorious rebel, Gen. John Hunt Morgan, was planning another raid into Kentucky.

Morgan's forces crossed the Cumberland on July 1 and 2, fighting a skirmish between here and Norris Branch on July 2. Brig. Shortly after that engagement, Gen. James M. Shackelford's brigade arrived to support Hobson. Immediately, several cavalry and infantry regiments were dispatched, under Shackelford's command, in pursuit of Morgan.

Then, the unfathomable happened. Three miles out the Burkesville Road Hobson's superior officer, Gen. Henry M. Judah, ordered Shackelford to halt and return to Marrowbone. Col. Richard C. Jacob's 9th Kentucky Cavalry was sent to guard the road and to intercept the Federal cavalrymen and turn them back.

Meanwhile, Morgan continued to force his way north. On July 3 he turned back the few Federal defenders at Columbia, on July 4 he bypassed a Federal position at Green River Bridge, and on July 5 he secured the surrender of Union forces at Lebanon.

General Judah did nothing. His force, immobilized by high water, waited to be ferried across the Green River at Vaughn's Ferry in Green County. The responsibility of pursuing Morgan was given to General Hobson.

In the months of January and February 1864, the 13th Kentucky Cavalry, USA, occupied the camp at Marrowbone while searching for rebel guerillas. In February they captured Capt. Littleton T. Richardson and several of Champ Ferguson's men near here.

The "Engineer" portion was probably a "steam engine engineer", the man who was responsible for the operation of the steam engine typically used to power many farm implements especially during harvest. Several other Lightfoot descendants were "steam engineers". (Brian L. Lightfoot)

Either Fredrick was born out of wedlock or Broady/Brody was not Euphany's maiden name.

She appeared on the Federal Census on 15 Jun 1900 in Pleasant Township, Porter County, Indiana.

General Notes:
There is at least one researcher who applies the 1880 and 1900 census records for a Jacob Lightfoot that was living in New Mexico to be this Jacob Lightfoot without any other proof other than the fact that both Jacobs were born in 1834 in Ohio.

It is very doubtful they were the same because the 66 year old Jacob Lightfoot in the 1900 census had parents from Ohio. This Jacob Lightfoot had a father born in Maryland and a mother born in Pennsylvania.

I'm not sure if this is the correct person or not, but the name, age, and birth location seem to match. This Jacob might be the same one that was enumerated in 1880 and 1900 in New Mexico.

General Notes:
The death date of 4 Apr 1874 for Barbara Caroline Spitler may be somewhat in question. Martin's second wife, which was Barbara Caroline's sister Eliza Jane, gave birth to her first daughter Lydia in about 1873 which could be a full year or so before Barbara Caroline died. Of course it is possible that they divorced in about 1872 and that she later died in 1874.

Marriage Notes:
LaPorte, Indiana Marriage Records, Book "E": Lightfoot, Eli A. and Stover, Eveline M....23 Nov 1864...J. P. Ash, Rev.
----------------------------------------

Following the marriage of Eli Lightfoot and Evaline Stover in La Porte County, Indiana, they followed Eli's parents, Isaac Lightfoot and Lydia Jones, to Carroll County, Missouri and were there for the 1870 Census. Sometime betwen 1871-1874, Eli's sister Phebe Lightfoot, who had married Evaline's brother, Henry Stover, moved to Douglas County, Kansas where they remained for the rest of their lives. Probably moving with them at the same time were Eli and Evaline where Eli's first born son, Edgar Vance Lightfoot, was born in 1873 but I am not yet sure if they were also living in Douglas County with Henry Stover and his wife, Phebe. Edgar would be their only child to be born in Kansas. Some sources provide for the names of three younger daughters born to Eli during the 1860s but their names never appear on any of the 1870 census records so if all three young daughters died in Kansas, that could have been the good reason for Eli and his family to then move back to Carroll County, Missouri to re-join his parents and Eli's younger brothers back in Carrol County where Eli's second son, James was born in 1878. They were enumerated for the 1880 census in Carroll County. Sometime after 1888, Eli and his entire family moved to Jasper County, Missouri where both Eli and Evaline lived out their lives.

The 63rd wedding anniversary of Comrade and Mrs. E. A. Lightfoot of Carterville were celebrated by the Webb City G.A.R. and W.R.C. at a November birthday dinner yesterday at the home of Mrs. Amanda Newton in this city.

E. A. Lightfoot and Evaline Stover were married Nov. 23rd, 1861 sixty-three years ago today at La Porte, Indiana by Rev. J. R. Ash, a Baptist minister. They have three children and 14 grandchildren.

The birthday of one of the Corps members, Mrs. Mattie Schurman, fell on the same date and was celebrated. Two large cakes bearing the words "Thanksgiving" were on the table. A Thanksgiving prayer was given and all enjoyed the good old fashioned fellowship.

Their 67th Wed Anniversary

Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Lightfoot of 228 East Main Street, Carterville, entertained neighbors and friends yesterday in celebration of their 69th wedding anniversary. Mr. Lightfoot is 92 years old and Mrs. Lightfoot is 89. Both are enjoying good health at their ripe old age.

Those present were Mrs. Ethel Soursby and Miss Alice Lightfoot, C. E. Ault, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Walker, Mrs. Mary Spielman, Mrs. Catherine Golder, Mrs. Mary Elam of Ottumwa, Iowa, Mrs. Mary Wheeler, Mrs. Oaie Haney, Mrs. Ellen Martin, Alice Coyle, Ella Sanders, Mary Davis, Ella Childs, and Mrs. Clovis Childs.

[NOTE - I am unable to determine just who is "Miss Alice Lightfoot". I suspect that she may be a daughter of Edward Vance Lightfoot, but I have no marriage information about him yet. The wording and punctuation of the newspaper article gives the impression that Alice was with Mrs. Ethel Soursby. Edward Vance Lightfoot died in 1910 at the age of 36 so it may be possible that Ethel was his wife who remarried. Eli's other son, Clarence died in 1905 at the age of 25 and there is no indication that he was ever married.]

----------------------------------------

A birth record for a then un-named son born on 2 Dec 1884 clearly shows that he was the seventh child born to Eva but my list of children currently place him as the eighth child. The child would be John Henry Lightfoot. And this means one of the older children must be incorrect or a duplicate. Of the oldest three daughters, Myrtle, Alice, and Jennie, there is no real definitive proof of their birth so at least one of these names is not correct. Perhaps one of the names is a middle name or a nickname for one of the other children. More research is needed.

General Notes:
Did George Snider Stover, the father of Evaline Matilda Jones, have two wives? All other researchers list only one child of the mother, Magdaline Jones, named Peter, who was born in 1830. The 1860 census record and researcher Jeanette Marie Burr list additional children. There seems to be a large gap in the births of children between 1830-1842 which suggests that there may have been a second wife. Researcher Jeanette Marie Burr does not include the child Peter Stover but submits the names of the additional children as "John A." born in 1830, "Clarinda J." born in 1836," Mary C." born in 1838, "Henry Francis" born in 1842, and "Evaline Matilda" born in 1846. Her name of Clarinda appears on the 1860 census as "Clorinda" but the birth year on the census works out to be about 1847, not the 1836 that Jeanette Burr submits. In fact, the 13 year old Clorinda on the 1860 census would have a birth date almost the same as Evaline Matilda. It is my suspicion that "Clorinda" may have been a misreading of difficult handwriting or else could be a nickname for Evaline Matilda, especially concerning the fact that Evaline's gravestone specifically gives her birth year as 1846.
