Ancestors of Karla Jo Saar

Note: Much of the information beyond Generation 6 is based on other people's research and has not been proven by me. In some cases, the names may be "best guess." Anyone who can add or correct information is encouraged to contact me at ckcasey@louisacomm.net .  Also, many thanks to Kevin Patrick , Maxine Lancaster and Alpha J. Bourn for their patient assistance and for allowing me to use  their photographs.

For each generation after Karla double the number for the father and add one for the mother. Except for No. 1, the even numbers are always male and the odd numbers are always female. A name within quotation marks is the name the person was known by, often a middle name, but sometimes a nickname.

David married (1) September 3, 1861 at Van Buren County, Iowa, (1) Margaret Robinson and married (2) February 25, 1886 at Clark County, Missouri, Sarah Elizabeth Thompson. When David was a teenager, his father died and on September 27, 1845 in Lee County, Iowa  his mother Elizabeth and John Henry Lines were appointed joint guardians to siblings David, Samuel, and Elizabeth. Lines had married James A. Sample's sister Martha Sample Nov. 15, 1842 in Lee County. In 1847, James' widow Elizabeth Sample married Samuel Hearn(es) Oct. 30, 1847 in Lee County. In the 1850 census when David was 21, he and his 12-year-old sister Elizabeth were listed as living next door to Isaac R. and Jane Sample Atlee in Fort Madison, Lee County, Iowa. Isaac Atlee (1813-1891) was the first mayor of Fort Madison, and a local industrial and financial pioneer. He had married David's older sister June 28, 1843. In 1860, David, 30, and sister Elizabeth, 22, were living in the home of Isaac and Jane Atlee. David was listed as a clerk, probably working for Isaac Atlee's lumber business. By 1870, David, 41, was an express agent in Mount Zion, Van Buren County. His wife, Margaret, 36, and children, John, 8, Henry, 5, James, 3, and Ella, 2, and an invalid cousin of Margaret's, Robert Robinson, 27, were in the home. The value of David's real estate was listed at $1,000 and his personal estate at $550. Robert Robinson's personal estate was listed at a value of $3,000. In 1880, David's wife Margaret and children were living in Missouri and David was working at a saw mill in Fort Madison and boarding at the home of Mary Shipley. Sometime between 1870 and 1886, David and Margaret were apparently divorced.

Robinson. Without further research,we can only assume that she and David were divorced or at least separated at that time. In the 1900 census, Margaret was listed as a widow, although David did not die until 1906. Her daughter, Ella M. (1866-1908), was living with her. Margaret's children Ella and James (1867-1897) are also buried at Black Oak Cemetery.

Next door is David Sample, 80-90. Very likely this family. James' daughter Martha was born February 4, 1824, Huntington County, Pennsylvania and married to John Henry Lines  in Lee County, Iowa died in 1902 in Albany, Linn County, Oregon.

105. Elizabeth Shannon married (1) James Sample and married (2) Samuel Hearn(s) Oct. 30, 1847 in Lee County, Iowa.

112. Robert Patrick, born ca 1800 in Virginia. He had children Robert A. and Sarah Ann.

They had children Elisha, Malissa, Nancy, Phebe, Reuben, Anthony, Catherine, Carlisle, R.J., Lucinda, Ann and John. There is an Anthony Matthews, 65, in the 1870 Greenup County, Kentucky census with Susan, 35, Samuel, 12, Thomas, 8, Eddie, 5, and Sarah, 1 month...indicating a possible second marriage. It gives Louisiana as Anthony's place of birth.

115. Mary "Polly" Hunt, born ca 1802 in Bath County, Kentucky; died May/December 22, 1852 in Greenup County, Kentucky. She was the daughter of 230. Reuben Hunt and 231. Nancy Denton. There is a death record for this woman listing her as single - could she and Anthony have been divorced or is this the wrong Mary Hunt? The death record also gives her mother's name as Mary.

116. Joseph Bourn, born ca 1795 in Jessamine County, Kentucky. He was the son of 232. Reuben Bourne and Hannah Unknown. Joseph married 117. Mary Eliza "Polly" Hulett.

Joseph is last seen in the 1860 Union Twp., Lewis County census with Maria Herring, 38, and William Herring, 19, both born in Kentucky, in his home. (We assume Maria is a daughter of Joseph and Mary, but the question lingers - why would they also name a daughter Maryann?)

He was contributing to her support and he left no widow or minor children.      

126. John Dalton born May 8, 1801 in Hawkins County, Tennessee; died October 27, 1872 Clark County, Missouri; buried at Bear Creek Cemetery.  John was a farmer and cooper (barrell maker). He  is believed to be the son of  252. Timothy Dalton. John married Patience Light about 1823 probably in Hawkins County where John was granted in 1837 fifty-five acres including a sugar camp on the south side of Holston River on the waters of Beech Creek on the north slope of the Chimneytop Mountain. John and Patience had six children: Riley, Elsira, Juda, Berry, Jonathan, Samuel. Oldest daughter, Elzira had married Wright Mullins and stayed in Tennessee when the rest of the family moved to Iowa about 1847. The family was living in Lee County, Iowa in 1850. In 1855, John bought a farm near the Des Moines River in Lee County with a $250 mortgage.

Jacob filed suit in court against his father, Peter Saar, because Peter was wealthy and Jacob was living in poverty. Peter agreed to give Jacob 100 florin, which he accepted gratefully with tears in his eyes and begged forgiveness for suing his father. Traditionally, children worked on their father's farms for nothing. The judge stated it was against the rules and God's law for a son to fight against his father

In 1783 he bought land in Sullivan County, Tennessee (then North Carolina) where he met the Hunts. After his wife died, he lived with his daughter Mary and her husband and then with some of his sons.

James received a land grant for 403 acres on Sinking Creek near what is now Johnson City, Tennessee. (Recorded in Vol 1, North Carolina Land Grants in Tennessee, p. 11, dated April 3, 1775.)
