Generation 5 Part 1


5A Barnett BLUE (1777-1846), m.ca1799 Elizabeth MURRAY (1783-1872). He was born near Romney VA (WV) and died in Fayette Co. OH. They were married in VA and came to OH in the early 1800's with his brother, John J. BLUE, settling in Ross (later Fayette) Co. It is said that the brothers rode horseback on the journey from VA to OH. Barnett is buried in the Sugar Creek Baptist Cemetery near Washington C.H., Fayette Co. OH. Elizabeth died in Miami Co. IN and is buried in the Rankin Cemetery near Loree IN. Barnett's will is on file at Washington C.H., Fayette Co. OH. It was written 10 July 1829 and proved 10 Nov 1846. Barnett did not name his children in his will. Their identities were first discovered by Pauline Skinner, who was given a "scrap of paper", reportedly from the Bible of George BLUE [], which named the 14 children of Barnett and gave the birthdays of all but the youngest. In 1987, Merle D. Blue conducted a search for more tangible evidence to substantiate this information. With the help of a professional genealogist, he was responsible for locating a series of deeds in the Fayette Co. OH courthouse by which the 14 children disposed of their undivided shares of Barnett's land, thus proving the identity of his children. Barnett bought this land, part of Survey 1309 located near Sugar Creek at the western edge of Union Twp., in 1828. Based on tax records, he reduced his holdings from 200 to 148 acres in 1831, but kept the remainder the rest of his life. (He may have disposed of 8 acres after 1838, for the deeds whereby the children disposed of his land specified 140 acres. Alternatively, this change may have been due to a resurvey. Elizabeth was living with her sons, Uriah and Calvin, in Washington Twp. of Miami Co.

5E John Michael BLUE (1777-ca1853), m.ca1796 Catherine NEWMAN (1779-1861). He was born in VA, probably Hampshire Co. and she was born in DE. They are believed to have married in Hardy Co. VA. She was a daughter of George and Mary Elizabeth (ROBERTSON) NEWMAN. John and Catherine moved from VA to Ross Co. OH in 1805. John served during the War of 1812 in Capt. James Dunlop's Mounted Company from Ross Co. He appears in the 1820 and 1830 censuses of Ross Co. and he owned two pieces of land there, which he sold to his son-in-law, Isaac GODFREY, in 1831 and 1837. John's name and those of his sons, Michael and William, appear in several civil court records in Ross Co., thereby proving their relationship. In 1832 he purchased 400 acres on the north fork of Paint Creek in Fayette Co. OH. By 1840, John and Catherine had moved to Paris Twp., Union Co. OH, and in 1850 they were living in Jackson Twp., next door to their daughter, Deborah, and her husband, Paris HORNEY. At that time he was a farmer and owned land valued at $1200. In 1860, Catherine was living with Deborah, both then widowed, in Paris Twp. The exact date of John's death is unknown, however, it is believed that he died before Oct 1853, when the two deeds to Isaac GODFREY were recorded. C214 says that John was buried at Price Cemetery, Essex, Union Co. OH, but stone could not be found by John Gray in the summer of 1984. Catherine was buried at the Union Church of Christ Cemetery, Peoria, Union Co.

5F Michael BLUE (1783-1863), m. Deborah PETERS (1786-1868). Michael Blue was a farmer and spent his early years in Hampshire Co., VA. During this time, he probably lived on his father's land, since no Virginia land records involving him have been found. He married Deborah PETERS, daughter of Tunis and Francinah (ADAMS) PETERS, who lived in the next valley to the east, along Tarecoat Creek. Family tradition, as reported in the published diary of William A. Ashbrook, a grandson of Tunis and Francinah, indicates that Francinah Adams was a cousin of President John Adams, but my research has concluded that she is descended from Alexander Adam, who emigrated from England and settled in Woodbridge, NJ, in 1685. No relationship to the presidential Adams family is evident.
According to Miller's "History of Fairfield Co.", Michael Blue and his family came to Ohio with his parents in the year 1812. This date is confirmed by a notation in Tunis Peters' family Bible, which states that "Deborah went away the 20th of October 1812", however, his parents did not leave Virginia until 1819, at the earliest. In 1817, Michael Blue leased a quarter section of land just north of the present site of Thurston in Walnut Township, Fairfield County, OH. This was rich rolling farmland fed by the waters of Walnut Creek.
In 1826, Michael and Deborah appear to have moved from Walnut Twp., for on 1 April of that year they were received, with a letter of admittance, into the Turkey Run Baptist Church in Amanda Twp. This was about the time of Tunis Peters' death, so it is possible that they moved to be closer to Deborah's mother, Francinah, who lived in Pickaway Co. just across the county line from the church. This is supported by an 1828 Fayette Co., OH, court record which describes Michael as a resident of Pickaway Co., OH.
The 1830 census lists Michael Blue as a resident of Fairfield Co. again, this time in Amanda Twp. In 1834, he purchased 80 acres of land in Amanda Twp., about one mile east of Cedar Hill on Cherry Run, which feeds Turkey Run, the main drainage system of western Fairfield Co. In 1976 the land was owned by Mrs. B. Hutchins, a lady of advanced age, who remembers when several Blue families lived in the neighborhood. In 1841, Michael Blue purchased another 80 acres nearby, to expand his farm.
After their children were grown, Michael and Deborah moved in with their youngest son, John Quincy Adams Blue, who lived in Walnut Twp. of Pickaway Co., OH. There, Michael died on 12 May 1863 at nearly 80 years of age. His wife, Deborah, survived him almost five years and died at the age of 82 years. They are both buried in the Turkey Run Baptist Cemetery in Amanda Twp., Fairfield Co., near the Pickaway Co. line, just off State Route 188. Many members of their family, and other families who intermarried with the Blues, are also buried there.* Tunis Peters BLUE (1806-1829), m.1826 Elizabeth GREER.* Francinah Adams BLUE (1808-1885), m.1926 John B.

Garret served during the War of 1812 as 2nd corporal in Capt. Isaac HEISKELL’s company of rifleman of the 1st Regiment, 1st Brigade, Virginia Militia, United States NW Army. He served at Ft. Meigs OH and was discharged there. On the basis of this service, his son Garret received bounty land warrants for 80 acres in 1853 and 80 acres in 1855. Garret lived in Fayette Co. OH for several years, then moved to McLean Co. IL (which later became Livingston Co.) after selling his land in Fayette and Ross Cos. OH. Garret was the second settler in the present bounds of Rook's Creek Twp., arriving there in the autumn of 1831. He erected the first mill in the county near his residence on Rook's Creek. In 1836 he sold this land and moved to Pontiac Twp., just to the east, and settled a few miles northwest of town (Pontiac). Garret was active in the affairs of the community, serving on grand and petit juries in 1838, and as sheriff of the county in 1840. In the election for sheriff, Garret and his opponent, John Foster, each received the same number of votes. He won the election by "casting lots". Garret and many of his family fell victim to the cholera epidemic of 1849-50.

He was born in OH, probably in Jefferson Co. where his parents owned a farm of 200 acres. While Benjamin was a lad, the family moved to Fayette Co. OH, where he attended the subscription schools of the neighborhood and attained a basic education in the "three R's". Upon attaining manhood, he sought the hand of Margaret RILEY and they were married in Fayette Co. OH. For 12 years after their marriage Benjamin rented and worked tracts of land. It was hard to get ahead, so they decided to go west to seek better opportunities. He made a trip to IN in 1834, travelling most of the journey on horseback, and learned that he could greatly better his condition there. So, in the Fall of 1836, he placed his family into covered wagons and moved to Kosciusko Co. IN. He then received from the government title to a half section of the best land that he could find, in what is now Franklin and Harrison Twps. He was probably the first settler in Franklin Twp. Here they carved a life out of the wilderness and Benjamin later served his county in the State Legislature (ca1851). He was a member of the Democratic Party. Benjamin and Margaret died in Kosciusko Co. IN and are buried at Mentone Cemetery.

5J John BLUE (b.ca1797), m. Rebecca _____ (b.ca1802). John was born in KY and moved up to Dearborn Co. IN with his father. He appears in the 1820 and 1830 censuses of Dearborn Co. as a married man with a family. In 1825 John bought 57 acres, located in Dearborn Co. in the SE quarter of Sect. 21, Twp. 4, Range 2W, from his uncle Jesse BLUE. In 1829 he bought 92.5 acres in Sect. 22 of the same township from his father, David BLUE. There is no record of the sale of these lands, but in 1830 John sold four lots in the town of Hartford. Note that all of the land mentioned above is in the part of Dearborn Co. that later became Ohio Co. By 1840, John and his family have moved to Ralls Co. MO, where they are living near David and Jesse BLUE. There appear to be eight male and one female children living in the family at that time. John's wife is not living with the family in 1850, and probably died before that time. John served as a Justice of the Peace in Ralls Co.* David BLUE (b.ca1826), m.ca1850 Mary E. _____ (b.ca1831).

In 1805 Michael received a federal land grant for the SE quarter of Sec. 7, Twp. 1, Range 11, in Miami Co. In 1818 he received additional land in the same section from his brother, James. Then in 1819, he sold some of his land in this section to John KNIGHT. Elizabeth BLUE and Daniel BLUE witnessed this deed. This Daniel is too young to be Michael’s son; he may be [], who lived in Fairfield Co. OH, or [], who lived in Ross Co. OH. In 1848 Michael purchased Lot OL 16 in Troy from Allen NESBITT and Daniel BROWN. In 1850 he received another lot in Troy (#94) from his son-in law, Thomas G. BARNS, which he transferred to his daughter, Ruth, a year later. In 1850 the value of his real estate was $1900. Michael is buried at the old Baptist Cemetery in Staunton Twp. of Miami Co.

5O Uriah BLUE Jr. (1782-1849), m1.1808 Jane STITE (1789-1819), m2.1820 Margaret (DEWEESE) GERARD (1797-1840), m3.1843 Charlotte CLARK (b.ca1805). Uriah was probably born in Bedford Co. PA, however, the 1850 Ohio Mortality Schedule says he was born in VA. He was married to Jane in Hamilton Co. OH by Rev. William Jones, Minister of the Duck Creek Baptist Church. In 1807, Uriah received a patent for 160.76 acres located in Sect. 23, Twp. 1, Range 11, in present day Spring Creek Twp., Miami Co. OH, and in 1808 they moved to this land. The first organized township meeting was held in 1815 and Uriah was elected as a trustee. In that year he recorded his earmark (for cattle) with the township, which was two slits in the upper side of the right ear. He sold parts of his land in 1814 and 1817, but kept some until he died. His estate sold the remainder in 1852. Jane was a daughter of Elijah and Rhoda STITES. She was buried on the Old Blue Farm (Saunders) Cemetery in Staunton Twp., Miami Co. Uriah married Margaret DEWEESE in Miami Co. She was a daughter of Lewis and Mary DEWEESE and the widow of John GERARD. She had two daughters by John, Elizabeth C. (GERARD) GARVEY (1816-1889) and Mary A. (GERARD) SMITH (1818-1889). Margaret died in Miami Co. and is also buried at the Old Blue Farm Cemetery. Uriah then married Charlotte in Warren Co. OH. She was a daughter of John CLARK of Warren Co. Charlotte was living with some of Uriah’s children in Spring Creek Twp., Miami Co. in 1850. Uriah was a veteran of the War of 1812 and is buried in the Old Blue Farm (Saunders) Cemetery near Troy OH, near the grave of his father. The children of Uriah and his wives were obtained from a list, which appears to be a copy of a Bible record, written by Clarence G. BLUE, grandson of Uriah and Margaret. These children are consistent with a series of probate and guardianship records filed in Miami Co. There is a 23 Apr 1841 record in Miami Co. OH wherein Uriah BLUE and William McCAMPBELL are appointed co-guardians for Uriah's children (after Margaret's death in 1840). This was probably required due to the legacy received by the children from their grandparents, Lewis and Mary DeWEESE.

He was born in VA or PA, and she in NJ. She was a daughter of John and Elizabeth (GREENE) HILLIARD, who came from the Mt. Holly area of Burlington Co. NJ. Barnabas and Mary were married in Montgomery Co. OH. Barnabas served in the War of 1812, as a Corporal and Second the Ohio Militia, with Capt. E. Kirtley's Company. They lived in the Miami Co. until shortly after the 1830 census, when they moved north to Shelby Co. They settled in Turtle Creek Twp., where Barnabas was living when he died (near Hardin). After the death of her husband, Mary continued to live in Shelby Co. On the basis of Barnabas' military service, she applied for and received two 80 acre tracts of land, one in 1851 and the other in 1855. No record has been found of the disposition of her land. The last known record of Mary is in the 1860 census of Boone Co. IN, Centre Twp. She is living there with her two youngest children in the town of Lebanon. Her son-in-law, John SCOTT, and son, Barnabas, are both working as tailors at that time. Barnabas was also in Boone Co. in 1850. He was then 15 years old and was working as a tailor. Mary is believed to have died in Boone Co.
The list of children of Barnabas and Mary has been assembled by several researchers. Nowhere in the records is found a list of Barnabas' heirs. A Bible exists, in poor condition, which records Barnabas' birth and death, the birth of Mary, their marriage, and the birth of their children. The publisher and date of publication of this Bible are unknown as are the dates that data were entered onto its pages. However, the handwriting is typical of 19th century writing. The Bible is currently in the possession of Margaret BLUE, widow of Calvin Preston BLUE []. Elizabeth BLUE (b.1807). May have m.1826 David PETTIT.* Charles H.

5P Martha BLUE (b.1790), m.1806 Bennett William LANGLEY (b.ca1776). She was probably born in Nelson Co. KY and came to Miami Co. OH with her parents in 1799. Bennett was born in MD. They were married in Montgomery Co. OH. They moved to Auglaize Co. OH ca1845, died there and are buried in Hudson Cemetery, Washington Twp. of that county. Bennett served in the War of 1812 as a private in Capt. Charles HILLIARD’s 1st Regt. Ohio. He enrolled at Staunton, Miami Co. OH 10 Apr 1813 and was discharged at Greenville, Darke Co. OH 25 Aug 1813.

Rachel was a daughter of Thomas and Frances (DYE) SAYERS. Sarah was born in Miami Co. OH and died in Allen Co. IN. She is buried in Leo Cemetery in Cedar Creek Twp. Sarah m1.1829 Samuel MERCER of Troy OH and had two children, William M. MERCER (b.1830) and Samuel MERCER (b.1832). These children lived with John Blackford BLUE in Allen Co. IN. John moved his family to IN ca1838 and was living in Allen Co. IN in 1840, 1850 and 1860. He was County Auditor for Allen Co., one of its first judges, and the first Post Office at Leo, Cedar Creek Twp., Allen Co., was in his store. Miami Co. OH Court of Common Pleas records of the April 1834 term show that John B. BLUE was appointed guardian of four of his children, Francis(sic) age 13, Ruth age 9, Mahetable age 7 and Wm. S. age 5. Elizabeth is not mentioned in this record. Presumably, these children inherited something from their mother, which required the guardianship proceedings.

5Q Frederick BLUE (b.ca1774), m. Mary _____ (b.ca1780). Frederick was probably born in Berkeley Co. VA, for militia and tax records indicate that his father was living there in the 1780's, and his grandfather, Michael BLUE, was there as early as 1777. By 1795, Frederick was living in Mercer Co. KY and he signed the marriage bond for his cousin, Elizabeth BLUE []. This indicates that Frederick was probably born before 1775. The 1820 census confirms this, and the 1830/40 censuses indicate he was b.1770/80. Frederick's father, Barnabas BLUE received a land grant in Miami Co. OH in 1804, and it is presumed that the family shortly moved there from KY. Frederick and Mary probably met and married in KY, for the 1850 census of Edgar Co. IL indicates that she was born in Lincoln Co. KY (transcribed Licking Co., but no such county has ever existed). In 1813, Frederick received a grant of land on Section 21, Township 2, Range 11, in Miami Co. OH. Miami Co. land records indicate that he and Mary sold some of this land the same year to Joseph Hudgell. In 1826 they sold the remainder to Samuel Cyer and, at about the same time, Frederick received a share in his father's land upon the latter's death. He moved his family to Hamilton Co. IN at about this time, and was a resident of that county when they sold their interest in his father's land in 1827. They were living in Hamilton Co. IN at the time of the 1830 census, which indicates that he had nine children or grandchildren living with him. By 1840, Frederick and Mary had moved to Vigo Co. IN. Frederick probably died during the next decade, for Mary is found in 1850 living with her daughter, Mary MULKINS, in Edgar Co. IL.
Some researchers have concluded that many of the following children belong to Barnabas and Mary (HILLIARD) BLUE [], but exhaustive, on the spot, research by Dick RUSSELL of Indianapolis IN has led to the conclusion that these children belong to another couple. Their location in the Vigo Co. area make it likely that they are the children of Frederick and Mary, and so are included in this family.* Mary BLUE (b.1810), m. John MULKINS (b.ca1791).

So Amy was probably his mother. The selection of John J. as the father of Joseph Thompson was based primarily on an evaluation of the 1840 IN census, considering all Blue families in the west-central part of IN that had sons, age 5-10. Prime candidates were Uriah H. BLUE [] and John J. BLUE [], both of Montgomery Co. Both of these men were probably born in PA. We have considerable information on Uriah's family, but had none on the family of John J. The 1840 census indicates that John J. had as many as seven sons.

Jackson at Battle of New Orleans. Earlier, he was in Berkeley Co. VA in 1799 where he served as 2nd Lieut. in the Provisional Army of the U.S. in the anticipated war with France. Rebecca was a daughter of Capt. Isaac and Rebecca (WYMAN) STURTEVANT of Roxbury MA. Isaac received a grant of land in Knox Co. OH on 3 Feb 1805. He died in 1806. After the death of Rebecca (WYMAN) STURTEVANT in 1827, the land was distributed to their five children (or their heirs). Uriah and at least two of the other heirs sold their interest in the land to Jesse Simpson in 1834. Extensive probate records for Uriah are on file in Baldwin Co. AL, which have been used to define the family of Uriah and Rebecca. Administration was given to Cyrus Sibley on 30 May 1836, so it is assumed that Uriah died shortly before this date.
Union Co. KY sources indicate that Uriah rose to the rank of Colonel, however, military records refer to him as Major. Uriah BLUE (b.1810/15). James BLUE (b.1815/20). Jane BLUE (b.1815/20).

OH with his father in 1807, moved to Tippecanoe Co. IN with his father in 1830, to Sangamon Co. IL after his father's death in 1833, lived with his brother John. Robert's wife is mentioned only by reference in the 1880 census of Sangamon Co. IL in which Robert Jr. states that his parents were both born in KY. It is likely that they were married in KY, shortly before they moved with his parents to Greene Co. OH. Since Robert Jr. lived from 1833 on in Sangamon Co., Robert Sr. probably died there and is buried in Williams Twp. in Sangamon Co. Ann does not appear in the family in the 1820 census, so she probably died before then, maybe after childbirth in 1811, since they had no more children.

His first marriage took place in Champaign Co. OH. Jacob bought 50 acres of land in Survey #4212 in about 1820, for he paid taxes on it that year. This land was originally owned by P. R. F. LEE, and Jacob obtained a quit claim deed from Robert BAY for the same land in 1828. In 1852 he purchased another 31 acres 6 perches from Ezekiel THOMAS. This accounts for most of the 90 acres in Goshen Twp. that Jacob lived on, as reported in the 1874 Atlas of Champaign Co. (see map below). He is buried at Maple Grove Cemetery, Mechanicsburg, Champaign Co. OH. Nancy was a daughter of William WOOD. Jane, his second wife, was born in NY, and appears with Jacob in the 1860 and 1870 census. They were married in Mercer Co. OH. She was a widow of _____ BUSHNELL and four Bushnell children are listed with her in the 1860 census of Champaign Co. OH. She is also buried at Maple Grove. Analysis of 1830 and 1840 census records indicates that there may have been a daughter born between 1821 and 1825 who probably died or married before 1850.

He was probably born in VA, as indicated by his death record and the 1870 census. However the 1850 and 1860 census records conflict with this, indicating he was born in OH. Alethea was born in OH, based on the 1850 and 1860 census records. She died before 1870. The first record of Jesse is a deed executed in 1831, wherein John and Jesse BLEW purchased 150 acres of land in Military Surveys 6444 and 6451 from E. D. WALKER and John GRAY. This land is located in the extreme southern part of Goshen Twp., Champaign Co. OH, near the county line. Apparently John and Jesse divided the land, 60 acres to Jesse and 90 acres to John, for John sold his 90 acres to Abraham HELMER in 1834. Jesse died in Mechanicsburg, Champaign Co. OH. He and Alethea are buried at Maple Grove Cemetery, Mechanicsburg, Champaign Co. Newton M. BLEW (1836-1900), m.1861 Mary E. BINKART (b.ca1837). They both were born in OH and were married in Champaign Co. OH. They were living in Wayne Twp. of that county in 1870. They divorced before 1880. He is buried at Maple Grove Cemetery. Although he was living with Jesse's family in 1850, Newton may not be his son, since he did not share in the estate when Jesse died. Alternatively, Newton may have been disinherited by his father. Did he m2.1881 Martha MILLER in Champaign Co.? In 1880 he was living in Goshen Twp. of Champaign Co. OH as a farm hand for William RITCHIE and Mary was keeping house for Calvin STOKES in Wayne Twp. In 1900 Mary was living alone in Wayne Twp. At that time, Martha BLUE (presumably neé MILLER) was living alone in Pleasant Twp. of Clark Co. OH. Newton had no known issue. Emily S.
