155 (Research):Note: The death certificate states that the burial date is on the 24th. From the years of research I highly doubt that they waited 12 days to bury him. I am more inclined to believe the 14th. I do believe that is what the death certificate should state, but since it does say the 24th, I am recording it as such until such a time that I have other documentation to disprove the 24th.

162 (Research):PIONEER WOMAN ANSWERS CALL
Mrs. Sarah Shook, Widow of David W. Shook, Died During Night
MANY DESCENDANTS
Mrs Sarah Shook, 93 years of age, widow of David W. Shook died at the home of her daughter, Mrs Ira Melson north of Hobbs Wednesday night at 10 O'clock, death ending an illness of several weeks from heart trouble and a general breaking down due to her advanced age. The death of this splendid woman removed from the community a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who lived to see many changed in this state and county. For the past fifty-four years she resided in Tipton county, coming here with her husband from Ripley county. "Grandma"Shook , as she was known to relatives and friends, was one of the beloved women of this county, a devout Christian who reared a family of splendid children and leaves many descendants who will be influenced by her teachings throughout their lives. For many years she was a member of the Baptist church and a woman whose religion was practiced in her every act and deed. Mrs. Shook was born in Ripley county, Nov 12, 1840, being one of ten children born to Samuel and Mary (Waters) Jackson. She was the last surviving child. She was married in Ripley county to David W. Shook, the ceremony being performed by Rev. John Walters, a Baptist minister of Versailles, and she and her husband lived there until their removal to this county in 1880. Of the eleven children to this couple, three daughters and four sons survive: Mrs. Ira Melson, Mrs . Mort Losey and Mrs. Nora Smith, all of the community northeast of Tipton; Rev. Albert Shook of Windfall; Elmer Shook of Fountain City; Willard Shook of Bunker Hill, and Renzo Shook, residing near Muncie. Mrs . Shook and her husband spent most of their married life on a farm, removing to Windfall when they retired from the farm, where the husband died in 1917. Aug 4, 1928, Mrs. Shook met with an accident at the home of her daughter , when she fell and struck her face, injuring her left eye in a manner which ruined the sight . She recovered from that accident and up to a short time ago was able to be up and around the home. Funeral services have not been arranged at this time, but the body will lie in state at the home of the daughter and friends are invited to call any time.

163 (Research):Rachel has 9 children, with only 4 living in 1900. Daniel, Rola and Clarence are living with them in the 1900 census so it could be one of the 3 not listed that is still living, or it could be one that was born between 1880 and 1900. Jones, Rachel H. (I2922)

165 (Research):Samuel and Louisa have a great grandson living with them in 1930. His name is Charles L Lloyd. Charles was born about 1926 in Indiana.It is unknown who his parents are. It has to be Ethel, Hanna or one of the deceased children. My thinking is it is Ethel or Hanna since the unknown children are deceased by 1900.

167 (Research):Some people have this Hiram and Hiram P. Saunders mixed up. This Hiram is from Fleming. Hiram P is from Lincoln County, Kentucky. It would probably be completely impossible for Hiram to be married to Abigail Saunders and Mary Ellen Burch at the same time. Although possible for Hiram to be married to two women, highly unlikely. On September 19, 1855 Hiram and Abigail had Hiram Fleming Saunders. On January 18, 1955 Hiram P and Mary Ellen Burch has Sanders. I believe these two Hiram's are more than likely related because the Saunders and Sanders last name is interchangeable. However, I do not believe these two Hiram's are the same person.

168 (Research):The book "Descendants of Reverend Robert Kelsay" states that Robert was married 2 times with both wives name being Hannah. I have not been able to find a marriage record for either one of them. It also states that Robert died in 1874, however the listing for him in Park Cemetery states the year of 1881. I have added Robert to find a grave and requested a photo, hopefully the request is fulfilled so I can see the dates on the tombstone. Until such a time as I can prove that Robert was married twice I will leave it as one wife.

170 (Research):The children listed for Robert & Elizabeth is an assumption because in 1810 they only listed the head of the household and not all family membe rs. On looking at the 1810 census, Robert & Elizabeth had 5 boys and 2 girls. 1810 Census Montgomery County, Kentucky 3 males under 10 means these boys were born before 1810. 1 male under 16 means this boy was born @1784. 1 male 10-15

WILLIAM FRENCH MARKWELL (nee MARQUIL) 1750-1816 WILLIA M FRENCH MARKWELL & 2 brothers, John & George, came over from France and settled in Maryland or somewhere along the line between Pennsylvania & Maryland. It could of been in the western part as they came down the Ohio on a flat boat to Flemingsburg in Mason County, Kentucky. WILLIAM FRENCH MARKWELL & AMELIA/EMELIS HURST were married somewhere in Pennsylvania or Maryland near the line around 1775. He served in the American Revolutionary War from 1775 to1783 and was in Kentucky by or before 1794 as his name is on the tax books at that time in the Historical Society. Fleming & Mason Counties were carved out of Mason County in 1798. The tax list is found in 1794 in the Historical Society building at Frankfort, Kentucky. His name is among the pioneer settlers. (The name Markquil/Marqyuk evidently became Markwell when the brothers migrated to the U. S.) He owned vast tracks of land to run a tavern/inn as they were called in thosedays. The land described on Foxes surrounds the old Wyoming is on the east side of the river in Bath County His name is found as witness and administered on several marriages and wills.
Old Home
The old brickhouse on Foxes creek known as the MARKWELL HOME was first used as a tavern and residence. The road went by that place to Reeves Ferry and people traveling this road would often spend the night there. This place was built by the Markwells. It contained two stairways and was plastered (a rareity in those days). No room was papered except the hall. The plaster was coated with lime each year. We know that E.W. Markwell lived there in 1884 but from then on the house was occupied by tenants . This house now owned by Luther Pierce according to early records was a landmark and in the records is referred to as the Markwell Plantation and Mansion. In regard to the 2 stairways --one entered from the front hall and was a nice winding stairway; the other from the sitting room. In those days many houses had 2 stairways one for the girls and one for the boys. There was no door between the two rooms upstairs. The house had 2 large rooms and a hall in the front part & in the back was a dining room, kitchen, & tavern.
Markwell Cemetery
The old MARKWELL & CRAIN GRAVEYARD is near the covered bridge over Foxes Creek at Grange City. Buried in this are the Markwells, Rosses, Hursts, Newmans, Kissicks, Fondrey.

IN MEMORIAM
------------ Mrs. Leah Stephens died November 27th , 1884, at her residence near St. John's Switch, aged sixty-seven years, six months and sixteen days. The remains were interred in the family graveyard November 29th,1884. The deceased was born in Madison county, Kent ucky, May 11, 1817. Her maiden name was Leah Parrish Her father, Edmund Parrish, moved from Kentucky to this county in 1823, and settled on Blue River, southwest of Shelbyville. He afterwards entered a tract of land near St. John's Switch, where he lived until his death. She, being the oldest of the family, was required to labor in and outdoors, which was the custom of the day. From youth she was a spiring, possessing the powers of acquisition by economy and perseverance in early life, she became the owner of real estate. She was twice married during life. For several years past the organs of the viscera had been afflicted and though able physicians were procured, temporary relief only could be given . Finally her disease became serious . No definite conclusion was given as to the character of her disease which was probably cancer of the stomach. To the day of her death she was patient in suffering, always extending her hand in friendship to her many friends. On various occasions she referred to the fact that the end was near at hand, but at the same time expressing her willingness to accept what the Lord in his infinite wisdom would send upon her. To her brother, to her daughter and to the one who held her dearer than all others, we would say in the language of Lowell : "Tis hard at first to see it alright, In vain Faith blow sher trump to summon back Her scattered troop; yet through the clouded glass O four own bitter tears we learn to look, Undazzled on the kindness of God's face, Faith is too dark, and heaven alone shines through.

178 (Research):The Town of Carrolton, named for early settler G. Carrollton, was formed from Great Valley on March 9, 1842. Part of the Allegany Reservation was annexed in 1847. It is the central town on the south border of Cattaraugus County. Ball Hill, in the southeast part is 800 feet above the valley. The Allegany River flows northwest through the northern part. The principal streams are Tunegawant and Windfall Creeks. The main industry is lumbering .

Tuna is a hamlet of the town, in the north. The first permanent settlers were: Charles Foster, Horace Howe, and Marcus Leonard who located on Lots 28 and 29 in 1814. Other early settlers included: John and William Moore, Elias Stone, Peter Zeluff, Isaac Farr, Aaron Kellogg , and William Smith who settled on Tuna Creek in 1828. The first child born was Merit Zeluff, in June 1829; and the first marriage was that of Mr. Brown and Emeline Fuller in 1828. The first death was Enoch Fuller, in 1826.

The first school was taught by Milton Northrop, at Limestone, in 1830-1831. In 1832, the first inn was opened, by Elias Stone near Tuna Creek; and the first store by Charles Lewis. A sawmill was built by Marcus Leonard in 1826.

Limestone is the second hamlet, in the south part. Upon the flats near Limestone are the remains of an ancient fortification. It is in the shape of a figure 8, the remains of the ditch and the earthworks are plainly visible.

Kill Buck and Carrollton, which were prosperous lumbering towns, are villages nearby the Horseshoe Cemetery. The Allegany River originally formed a horseshoe-like bend at a point north of Carrollton in the Town of Great Valley; thereby getting the name Horseshoe Bend. About 1927, there was a wash-out along the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks to the railroad company asked that they make a new channel which enclosed the horseshoe bend into an island.

The Erie Pennsylvania, and the Buffalo Rochester and Pittsburgh (now the Baltimore and Ohio) railroads went through the towns with depots in each village. Carrollton was named after Guy Carrollton Irvine in March 1842 and the town was organized in May 1842. Kill Buck was named after Chief Daniel Kill Buck, an Indian, who lived on the bank of the Allegany River. In 1860, Kill Buck had a population of 800 and in the 1890's Carrollton's population was 4500. John Green built the first lumber mill in Kill Buck in 1812. Both these villages boasted three or four taverns with some a combination tavern and boarding house .

The law of the jungle ruled in these lumber towns. A story was reported of one "Big Jim Morrisey" who challenged a stranger at the breakfast table that he could "Lick any !##!! here. There was silence the stranger leisurely emptied his coffee cup, pushed back his chair, and replied, "Come on, we'll see". The challenged stranger was "Red Hogan " and the two men fought by the banks of the Allegany River until noon, when the boarding house mistress separated them for lunch. They had stripped down to their pants and although battered and bruised, were still full of fight. They started again after lunch and fought until four O'clock, when they shook hands, and called it a draw. Hogan was missing part of an ear and had chewed off a part of Morrisey's finger.

179 (Research):There are 2 Hezekiah's in Shelby County. Both Hezekiah's were born about the same time however, they have different children. Looking at the wife won't work. The wife's first name is the same. However, the children's names are different and the death dates are different also. In 1870 and 1880 there is a Corey/Cora living with Cary as he went by. In 1870 it states that she was born in Indiana, and in 1880 it states her parents were born in New York. She was born either in 1868 or 1869. I do not believe that this child is theirs, however it is possible. There is also a 13 year gap between Laura and her, and again this is possible, but doubtful.

180 (Research):There are several cities in Kentucky by the name of Fairview. They are in the following counties: Kenton, Anderson, Christian, Boyd, Whitley, Fleming, and Lyon. Based on where John and Rebecca were living at the time of their deaths, I believe it is in Fleming County. In 1910, Rebecca states that she is the mother of 11 children, with 10 living.

181 (Research):There is 3 children living with Jacob and Elizabeth in 1870. They are too young to be their children. Who they belong to is unknown at this time. The children are: Mary b. 1863 in Ohio, Albert b. 1865 in Ohio, and William b. 1869 in Ohio. In 1880, they are listed as Jacob's grandchildren. There is another one that is living with Jacob in 1880 that is listed as a granddaughter. She is Elizabeth B. b. 1874 in Ohio. Rust, Jacob (I12941)
 
182 (Research):There is a David & Eliza J Lathram living with Ambrose and Deborah in1 850. David was born in 1827 in Fleming County. Eliza J was born in 1834 in Bath County. My instinct tells me that Eliza may be their daughter. In 1860, there is a Larkin Goodpaster living in the household with Ambrose and Deborah. I wonder if this Larkin is actually their son Franklin.The ages closely match. More research is required to find out. Jones, Ambrose (I17767)
 
183 (Research):There is a gap between Mary and William, and there is a birth record for a child in 1875 for Austin and Sarah (Boyd) Saunders, and because of the census records only having about records for the birth, I believe that the birth record is for William, thus he is being put on the family page of Austin and Sarah. The birth record does not have a name for the child. However, I have been able to find death records for both of his siblings by his mother.

184 (Research):There is a George Tout living with Thomas and Martha who was born about 1841 in Indiana. Is he Thomas's brother ? How is he related to Thomas because obviously with his age he is not his son unless he was married before he married Martha. There is also a John Tout living with Thomas and Martha that was born about 1838 in Indiana. Who is he? The 1860 census has Thomas being born in Indiana but, the marriage record has him being born in Fleming County, Kentucky. Which is correct ? Three of Thomas's children's death records have been found. Two of the three state he was born in Indiana. In fact, Lizzie (Tout) Clark, his daughter states that he was born in Danville, Indiana. There is a second county in Danville, Indiana. It is Clay county.
 
Tout, Thomas M (I17515)
 
185 (Research):There is a Gillian Harper who was born in 1822 in Fleming County, Kentucky living with Fletcher and Nancy in 1850. I have a feeling this may be Nancy's sister since Nancy's maiden name is Harper.
 
Harper, Nancy (I20726)
 
186 (Research):There is a May Prater living within the household of Archibald and Elizabeth Prater in 1870. She is 21 which makes her born about 1849. She was born in Indiana. Who is this and is she any relation to Archibald? There is a Walter Prater living within the household of Archibald and Elizabeth Prater in 1880. He is listed as their Grandson. Is he Nancy's son or one of the other children's son? He is born @1868 in Missouri .
 
Prater, Archibald (I9072)
 
187 (Research):There is a Timothy Hines (Himes) aged 15, born in 1845 living with Lewis and Nancy in 1860. I assume this is a son from a previous marriage of Lewis's. Further research is necessary to determine if this is correct. Himes, Lewis R. (I12496)

189 (Research):This child is listed with his sister after she is married to John Morton McCormick as a brother to head of household. He is listed as Noah M cCormick. In the 1860 census he is listed as a child of Smith and Elizabeth Tomlinson. There is an approximate stretch of 11 years between Margaret and Noah. Although not impossible, it is highly unlikely that there was no children in between these two children. The possibility also exists that he is a child of Hugh's or of one of the girls.
 
Tomlinson, Noah (I20191)
 
190 (Research):This family seems to keep their children with other people, or whoever reported it to the census taker did not tell them everyone in the household. Martha was supposedly born in 1875, but was not in the household in 1880. Bluford was born in 1862, but was not in the house hold in 1870. So where were these two girls during the census when they should have been in the household? Or is it that someone forgot to mention them to the census taker?

192 (Research):Unless Emma was married before she married Aaron Bishop Chadwick, it appears that she never had any descendants. She married Aaron in 1905, which would have made her about 41 when she married Aaron.

195 (Research):When William married Francis she had an illegitimate daughter named Josephine. Josephine was given the Kelsay name and Claimed by William as his daughter. Between 1880 and 1884 when William and his family went to Illinois, Josephine was left with her Coffey grandparents in Colorado to be raised by her grandparents.

196 (Research):Where is William & Elizabeth in 1860? I cannot find them in Fleming or Bath. Maybe they were indexed wrong or they lived somewhere else for those 10 years. William states in 1880 that both of his parents were born in Pennsylvania. Where is the whole McKee family in 1860 ? I could understand if I couldn't find one but, not to find any of this family? I cannot even find David.
 
McKee, William (I4739)
 
197 (Research):While researching this family, I noticed that their last name from 1840 to 1860 was Sanders in the census records. In 1870 the last name changes to Saunders. I do have a general index to marriages in fleming county that has most of these people as Saunders. But, I would not hesitate to look in the Sanders general index if you have access to it. I do not know if the change in the name is because the census recorder misspelled the name or if they changed their name and it was also spelled wrong in the general index to marriages in fleming county. We may never know.

200 (Research):William Thomas's death certificate states that his mother's name is Mary Stickrod. However, James Morgan's death certificate states that the mother is Elizabeth Stickrod. James death certificate states his mother was born in Pennsylvania, whereas William's states Kentucky. Since the 1850 shows the oldest female as Elizabeth and that she was born in Pennsylvania, I am going with that.
