bullet  General Notes:

Hey Char, Thanks for the links. This so cool, I had no idea this was on the net. The family does appear on page 342 of this census, last family enumerated (#772 I think).

William Mason was born between 1790-1800 probably in KY. He married Eleanor Richardson on Feb. 16, 1830 in Howard Co.MO according to the book "Early Marriages in Missouri before 1850". William must have died before 1850 because in the census for 1850 "Nelly Mason" is the head of the household. Her children listed were James, Mary, Moss, George, Tyler and Isabelle. (The family continues on page 343). Now I know nothing else of William Mason, however an Eleanor Mason did marry John Holman on Apr. 13, 1852 in Macon Co. according to marriage books. If you notice the family enumerated right above Nelly Mason's is John Holman's, so this must be our Eleanor Mason that remarried. I havent been able to find any Holmans in the latter censuses for Macon Co. William Mason is as far as I have been able to trace back, but I believe he was from KY but dont know what county. I do know however that Eleanor was the daughter of James Richardson and Anna Tilly who came from Shelby Co.KY. I have seen in a marriage book that James Richardson married Anna Tilly, daughter of Lazarus Tilly (Tilley), in Shelby Co. KY on Jully 18, 1807. That is as far as I go on this line, I am assuming they originally all came from Virginia.

I hope you are still with me, I know this is alot of info thrown at you at once, Please feel free to ask me any questions if you get lost.

Now on the Garlock side, I am as far back as Henry Garlock, born May 24, 1807 in Washington Co. MD. He died on Jan. 30, 1894 in Adair Co.MO. He married Esther Cuppett on Mar. 16, 1834 in Bedford Co.PA. She was born Apr. 24, 1814 in Bedford Co.PA and died July 2, 1898 in Adair Co.MO. She was the daughter of John Cuppett and Susannah Spahr of Bedford Co.PA. Both Henry and Esther are buried in the Prairie Bird cemetery near Gibbs, Adair Co.MO. I know nothing of Henry's parents but he was born in Washington co. Maryland.

Henry and Esther migrated to Preston co. VA (now WV) and had ten children. Their son Henry Clay Garlock is our line. Henry Clay is also buried in the Prairie Bird Cemetery and has a military marker only. It reads Co. D 21st MO Inf., and I know he was a union soldier in the civil war because his obit tells quite alot of info about his military service. He married Mary Ann Pierson (Pearson) on Dec. 24, 1865 probably during his service in the war. I have no idea what county or state the marriage occurred. This marriage date appears in his obit.

Now for Mary Ann Pierson, censuses state she was born in TN, but I dont know what county. Here is the 1880 census Macon Co., LaPlata township for the family: Henry C. Garlock 36 VA MD PA Mary A. 40 TN NC NC Wm. H. 13 IL VA TN Geo. J. 11 IL VA TN Eddy 6 IL VA TN Katy 4 MO VA TN Lucian 1 MO VA TN Louisa Pierson 71 NC NC NC

From this we can figure that Mary Ann's mother was Louisa and she was from NC. But that is as far as I get.

It list all the children of Henry and Esther Garlock and their descendants I have been able to find and I'd like to enter all the Frisinger names to it. Write back with any questions.
