[NI1] Because of the Hessian Solder confusion, the only biological children of this man would be Mary, Henry, Jacob Jr and John. Johannes the probable flather of Sarah and Anna Matgaret, and the deserter Nikolas the probable father of Phillip, Joshua, Elizabeth. For research purposes, we are keeping them all under Jacob until sorted out.

[HI1] (Research):German naming patterns indicate this is Jacob, as the middle name was the name commonly used.

For many years, we relished the idea that Ol Jakob was a Hessian Soldier from Germany, coming to America to fight in the Revolutionary War, paroled to a farmer, working his way to become a land-holder and start his new life and family in America.BUT All of the facts lead us back to Germany where Jakob Uebelshaeuser was returned as an invalid, married, had children, and died in Germany. His brother/cousin, Johannes, was returned to Germany some time before 1788 as he also marries in Germany. .A Hessian by the name of Nicolas was found "deserted to the enemy", Oct 1777. If Nicholas assumed the name of Jacob and really is our ancestor, we shall never know. But facts show Jakob was taxed in 1778 in Exeter , Twp, Berks Co.,PA, so we would assume this would not be the Hessian since he was repatriated to Germany. I concluded theory of the Hessian Soldier had died and been put to rest, but see that he could have very well fathered children before returning to Germany. However, our ancestor, Joshua was born much later that Jacob returned, leaving us to conclude the Hessian Jacob is NOT our ancestor.

Jacob the Hessian Soldier who was returned to Germany, was born 12/27/1752 to Johan Christoph Ibelsheuser and Anna Martha Theis and married Anne Elisabeth Ibelshaeuer on 11/26/1783, she the dau of Johan Just. Ibelshaeuser and a woman with maiden name of Achebach. She (wife Anne) died 7/2/1811 and Jacob died 10/19/1813.

We are continuing the search, following new leads every day, so that we can find the true "roots" of Ol Jacob. We only know he is the PATRIARCH of the Evilsizer/Evilsizor Family.

The first mention of Jacob is in 1778, Berks Co, Pennsylvania on the tax list as Jacob Evelsheimer. The name is spelled in this similar manner for marriage certificates, birth records, and court records. Until as such time there is some kind of proof to a connection the the Hessian Uebelschausser, our ancestry shall remain as I have him in this book. We can follow Jacob from the 1784 Berks Co, PA Tax list to Rockingham Co, VA in 1788 where he had a militia voucher. In 1789 he gave up his children to overseers of the poor. He did not give up Jacob Jr, his name sake. Jacob disappears for many years, maybe going off to find a new wife and start someplace new. For whatever reason, he ends up back in Rockingham Co, VA in 1804 on the personal Tax List. Sometime in the early 1790's he starts a new family, as more children are born. Living also in Rockingham Co, VA in 1807 are George and Adam Evilsizer. Birth dates, ,marriages, and census records verify that George and Adam are NOT children of Jacob. George and Adam go to Harrison County Indiana about 1815.

I have found many web sites that «u»«b»incorrectly«/u»«/b» show Adam (c1777-1821) and George (1784- 1864) as children of Jacob. Facts to disprove this are the 1784 Berks Co, Pa Census showing 6 members in the household. All children in this household have proven birth records from Berks Co, PA., also birth places in the census of both Adam and George say Virginia. Jacob did not get to Rockingham Co, VA until 1788, probably following his brother there. These sons also do not appear in the 1810 Census of Rockingham Co, as only Joshua and Phillip (proven children of Jacob by marriage consent records) appear in this census. Also, in 1789 when Jacob gave his children to the overseers of the poor, George and Adam were not mentioned. I strongly suspect the father of Adam and George died. It is only coincidence Jacob, Adam, and George appear in the 1807 Personal Property Tax List of Rockingham Co. Just goes to show you can never assume......

[HI7] (Research):Born after 1784 census and married before 1810 census. Settled in Harrison Co Indiana. It is questionable if this Sarah that married Peter Hartsook is the daughter of Jacob. There are a couple of conflicting items. The marriage application in Augusta County says that Abraham Sambert made oath that the father of Sally Evilsizer verified that she was over the age of twenty one years. That would be true if she was actually born in 1784 as the baptism states. However if tombstone is correct ( born 12/16/1788) died 9/13/1851 62y9m16d then she would have NOT been of age to marry in 1809. Another possibility is she may have been a sister to George making sense she be buried next to him. The actual Sarah d/o Jacob may have died sometime after 1789 when she was bound to Samuel Miller overseer of the poor. A third possiblility is Jacob named another daughter Sarah born in 1788 that we have no documentation on. I am going to make a project of seeing the tombstone.

Excerpt from "Counties of Morgan, Monroe and Brown, Indiana: Historical and Biographical Editor: Charles Blanchard, Published 1884
Morgan County, Baker Township "The earliest settlement of Baker township is enshrouded in mystery. It is certain that white families lived therein as early as 1820, and possibly 1819. A family named EVILSIZER was living there on the old Thomas Hodges farm when the first permanent settlers arrived, but how long they had been there cannot be learned. It is believed that his family lived there before the cession treaty of 1818. The family consisted of the father, mother, two or three sons, and a daughter or two. They were professional pioneers and preferred to live in the woods, remote from the settlement. The father and the boys were skillful hunters and trappers and several times a year visited the other settlements in the Southern part of the state to sell their furs or exchange them for ammunition, traps ,
weapons, tobacco or some article of clothing for the women. The men dressed almost wholly in deer or raccoon skins and spent their time hunting and trapping in which they were very expert. They had a garden consisting of one half to three quarter acre which was cultivated by the women, as the men were above that sort of degradation. According to tradition, the men on one occasion had considerable difficulty with a band of four or five Indians that stopped at their cabin. The trouble arose over a trade of furs on the part of the Indians for ammunition and trinkets on the part of the whites. Arms were drawn, wounds given, but the difficulty was adjusted before any of them were killed. It is said this family killed many bears in various parts of Morgan County. Within two or three years they left the county, going no one knows whither, but certainly out into the wilderness."

The second mill built on the river in this county was by Joshua Evilsizer and was located not very far from the iron bridge near Paragon. It passed from Evilsizer to Ambrose Burkhart in an early day, who operated it a few years and sold out to a Mr Pumphrey, who, we think, was its last owner. It probably went out of business about the year 1850. It was in the recoiling waves below the dam of this mill, one cold winter day, that the sad drowning of Leander S Lankford and a man named Crocket occurred in the presence of half a dozen or more men who were unable to rescue them They were crossing the river above the dam, when by some mismanagement, they let the canoe drift over it and were caught in the surgin waters below. A small boy, son of Crocket, clung to the canoe and was saved. This accident happened as many as fifty years ago. Not very far below this mill, just in the edge of our county, was Mr Myer's mill, completed and put in running order at a later date than the Evilsizer mill. ......

The history of Hoquiam and of the Grays Harbor country cannot be better told than by detailing many of the incidents of the life of James A. Karr, who lived until November, 1914, to tell the tale of the wonderful development of this section of the country, his memory forming a connecting link between the primitive past and the progressive present. After the death of the father, the mother took her children to a place near the home of her brother, Reuben Stepp, and there she became acquainted with a German of the name of Evilsizer, who was a widower with several children. She became his wife and they removed to Washington County, Illinois, Mr. Evilsizer having there purchased a farm on which was a comfortable brick residence. He expected to pay for this place by the sale of his property in Indiana, but not getting the money for this, he was compelled to leave that land and settled on an eighty-acre tract of raw land for which his son had contracted. Before he secured title to that place, however, he became ill and passed away.

[HI13] (Research):After the birth of his first son, Sinclair and Perlina moved from Indiana to Montevallo, Missouri along with her parents, where Sinclair set out the first orchard in the small trading post. Soon after, they moved nor theast of Richmond in Ray County where he took out a land grant of four sections between Millville and Tinney's Grove. Sinclair was a Judge of the Ray County Court several terms during the 1860's and 70's. Many times he would take his granddaughters, Lucy Burress and Cora Evilsizer with him to Richmond when he was attending court for the day.

Perlina always described Sinclair as a "southern gentleman" which I presume meant he did not do menial work or labor with his hands (farm work with out getting dirty!). One example- Perlina had had a baby a day or two before and since there was no one else around to milk the cows, Sinclair, who did not know how to milk (so the story goes), carried her to the barn where she could do the milking! I guess there were several "southern gentlemen" in the family as there are similar stories about Sinclair's brother Levy and his son, Joshua.

Sinclair's two sons, Joshua and Thomas Jefferson, served with the Union Army during the Civil War. Sentiments for pro or anti slavery had a long history in Missouri. Loyalty ran deep from southern supporters and produced many guerrilla forces true to Dixie. Throughout 1861 and much of 1863, local government broke down over much of Missouri, with local civil wars and guerrilla raids and much destruction of public and private property. It was during this time that Sinclair had rode over to a neighbor's house, Mr. Schooler, who lived west of his place. While visiting together, they heard horses approaching and realizing they were Quantrill's Raiders, Mr Schooler said "Evilsizer, you'd better get out of here." While Sinclair hid, Mr. Schooler went out to see what they wanted. They said they were on their way to Evilsizer's house to kill him. They wanted to water their horses and go on, but to give Sinclair more time for his get-a-way, Mrs. Schooler talked them into staying for lunch. When they came inside, Sinclair sneaked out, mounted his horse, went home and packed a few things and rode to Chillicothe to wait out the war. (Source of story was Joe Amery, Sinclair's grandson, who passed it on to Marion Kelliher, great granddaughter of Sinclair.

After the war, Sinclair and Perlina continued to live on their farm for a number of years, which he had named "Millstead" with many tragedies s triking Thier family. Joe Amery said that many of the Evilsizers died of Typhoid. First their son Levi, died at the age of 7, Sara age 17 died in 1875, William age 27 died in 1876, Mary , who had married Tom Burress, died at the age of 26 in 1878; Malinda in 1882, and Jeff who was killed in 1883.

In 1961 Myron Gafffin Reynolds, daughter of Lucy Burress Gaffin and granddaughter of Mary Evilsizer Burress, related some of her memories to Marion Kelliher, great-granddaughter of Sinclair and Perlina: "Mama used to tell us for weeks after her mother (Mary Burress) died, she would run off from the farm and Sinclair and Perlina would find her lying across her mother's grave crying and grieving for her. Grandmother had a very hard time with her (Lucy)."

In 1883 when Sinclair's son Jeff, was killed, Joe Amery tells this story: "Thomas Miller, who married Sinclair's daughter, Malinda, had borrowed a horse from his father-in-law, Sinclair. Later, the horse was seen in someone else's possession. The man said he bough the horse from Thom as Miller. The Evilsizer's eventually were involved in a lawsuit with Thomas Miller. While the lawsuit was pending, Jeff was called to his door one rainy night and, when he opened it, was shot. He lived long enough to swear he saw Billy Miller (Melinda's son) at the door. However, Billy was acquitted when his sister, Eliza, swore he was at home that night. Malinda had died in 1882 and Perlina always said she was so glad that Malinda never knew of this tragedy" At the time Jeff owned a large farm consisting of 400 acres near Cowgill in what is now Caldwell County, not too far from his father's place. His widow, Eliza, lived on the farm alone for a number of years, where she, too was killed in 1891.

After the death of Jeff, Perlina and Sinclair were so devastated by these events, that they sold their farm in 1884 ($35 an acre) after having lived in Ray County approximately 40 years and moved to Kansas.

Their destination was Severy in Greenwood County, Kansas, where their daughter, Mariah Jane (Jennie) and her husband Henry Turner were living. They took their daughter, Dell Oro and their grandchildren, Cora Evilsizer, Lucy and Albert Burress along. Cora's father William died in 1876 and her mother remarried and more or less gave Cora to Sinclair and Perlina to raise; Lucy and Albert Burress' mother, Mary, had died in 1878.

Sinclair bought land in Severy and farmed and was also engaged in the hard ware business with the Turners until his death.

Joe Amery said he remembered writing letters for his grandmother, Perlina, and his mother would explain to him that Perlina had not had the chance for schooling that he had. Joe also passed this story on to Marion Kelliher:"Grandma Evilsizer used to tell about living in her fathers' home in Indiana. She said her father ran a distillery and in the fall he always threw the "pummies" out so that the wild hogs would come and eat them. Some would eat enough to get drunk and then her father would kill enough for the family's meat.(Pummies were some sort of residue, I suppose, from the distilling process.) "Perlina also said the Indians would come quite often and ask for milk, but they would never bring a container. Perlin 's mother would say "You won't bring back the bucket." The Indian would then take his rifle and place it above the door for her to keep until he brought back the bucket."

Lavonne Schulze, 2x great-granddaughter of Sinclair and Perlina and who owns the family Bible, has written: "There are odd scraps of beautiful dress material in the Bible along with pressed flowers, a long braid of dark brown hair, little paper hearts and a slip of paper which reads " Hay from woods to Mrs. Evilsizer - gross 2840, tare 1140, net 1700 - amount $1. 70."

Obituary, August 15,1891-Severy, KS Sinclair Evilsizer was born June 19,1819 in Rockingham Co, Virginia and emigrated in an early day with his parents to Morgan County, Indiana. In the year of 1838 he was married to Perlina Walters; by this union there were twelve children, of which only five remain to mourn the death of their father, three girls and two boys. In the year 1840 he moved to Ray Coun ty, Missouri and settled on a farm proving a successful farmer. April 1st, 1884 he came to Greenwood County, Kansas with his family and settled at Severy, where he resided until his death, which occurred at 6:10 P. M. August 18, 1891, after an illness of eleven days, at the advanced age of 72 years, 3 months and 1 day. The funeral services were held at the Congregational church at 4 P.M., last Friday after which the body was interred in Twin Groves Cemetery. He professed religion in 1867 but never united with any church, but being a strict Baptist in belief. He was a loving husband, a kind and affectionate father and a friend to all in need; respected by all who knew him. During his illness he was a patient sufferer, never complaining, and his death is a quiet sleep. When his wife wou ld tell him she could not give him up, he would say "It won't be long ". We shall miss him for he is gone. "Tell me not in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream, For the soul is not dead that slumbers And things are not what they seem"

In 1983 I received a letter from a Greenwood County, KS Historical Society volunteer in response to a letter I had written. She stated: "There is a probate record for Sinclair Evilsizer, but for some reason, the file is missing. However, I was able to go to a ledger entry and get the following information.........". She goes on to list his death date at Severy, KS & lists his heirs. She also stated that he left no will & that his estate was mostly personal property. S Durels

Letter written to Edwin Jean Evilsizer from her sister "I am sure I've told you before, but you may have forgotten, that Grandfather and John Evilsizer's father Sinclair hurried off the farm and spent so me time in Chillcothe until Quantrell's raiders were out of the territory. They had gone to Sinclair's southern-sympathizing neighbor's farm and mentioned that they were going to kill "Old Man Evilsizer" because his oldest son Joshua was in the Union Army. The neighbor sent warning to Sinclair .

During the Civil War, Quantrell and his raiders wreaked much havoc in Missouri, attacking Union army groups and civilians who would not support the raiders. During 1860-61, many west Missouri homes and farms were destroyed by the guerrillas and Union troops - mostly by Quantrell's men. In an effort to capture the guerrilla group and discourage local assist ance to them, a force of Union soldiers arrested all residents of Independence during the spring of 1862 and destroyed much property. On August 25, 1863, Brigadier General Thomas Ewing issued General Order No. 11, which ordered the evacuation of much of Jackson and other counties with in 15 days. Residents who could not prove their loyalty to the Union were to be completely removed from the military district (which encompass ed Kansas and Missouri). Grains and hay were to be turned over to the military and any not surrendered was to be burned. Large numbers of people lost their homes and properties.

The problem did not end with the war, however. Several bandit gangs which arose from the Quantrell raiders (e.g., the James and Dalton brother s) and plagued much of Missouri, including Jackson County.

Before my summer, 1962 trip to Kansas City, to visit my mother, I wrote to my father's cousin, Joe Amery, who lived in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. My father had died when I was 12, and I wanted to visit Mr. Amery to learn more abour my father's family. Mr. Amery was the son of Sinclair's daughter Nancy Ann "Annie" Evilsizer and John Amery, of Braymer,

Joe Amery not only invited me to visit, but when I arrived he drove me to visit the graveyard at Tinney's Grove, where Perlina's mother Perlina Walters and some of Sinclair's children are buried. He also took me to Millville, where Sinclair and Perlina had a farm, which they call ed "Millstead". The house was gone, but I took a picture of Sinclair's barn, which was still standing.

I also took a picture of the remains of the home of Sinclair's neighbor, Mr. Schooler, who had the adjoining farm. Joe Amery wanted me to see Mr. Schooler's home, because, although he was a southern sympathizer, he may have saved Sinclair's life. The occasion was when four of Quantrell's men--bushwackers--came on horses and dropped in at Schooler's home. They said t hey were looking for Old Man Evilsizer and planned to hang him because his son (Joshua) was in the northern army.

Mr. Schooler invited the men in to have some food and he sent someone to warn Sinclair that he was in danger. Sinclair immediately went to Chillico the, Missouri and stayed there a few weeks until the bushwackers were out of his neighborhood.

And endnote to this story is that some years later, when John, 83, was told that his brother Joe, 80, had died, he went to his niece's (or daughter -in-law's?) home to tell her the news. He died, crying on her shoulder.

In September, 1990, Jim and I were planning a trip from New Jersey to Wyoming with a pop-up trailer, and I got in touch with Hoy to see if I could meet him. He invited me to come to his ranch home and when I knocked on the door, he opened it and opened his arms to greet me. It was very touching. Another fine fried chicken dinner--I think what I call dinner was often served at lunch time in these country places. Hoy and his wife were delightful and it was a wonderful visit.

[NI14] Jefferson T was believed by family members stories handed down through the years to be suspected of being a "horse thief", running off to MO,and taking a new wife without divorcing the first one having a family in each state. Jefferson being an unusual name, we find evidence of two (2) Jefferson Evilsizer 's in Washington Co, ILL in the 1865 Census. The source census matches with children and their birth dates. Another Jefferson shows in Mud Prairie Twp Pg 109 line 22 - 2 FWM-30-40 2 females 0-10 and 1 female 20-30. ano ther older male (20-30) in household ? He had no son named Jefferson that we know of. This is possible verification of the "two family" theory, We know he married Eliz Clark in 1840 and the 1840 census shows a female child under 10 (born 1840). This female would be 25 in 1865 to be the possible female 20-30 in the other household. Nothing was left in his will to his first family.

Her parents were Levi Walters (born 11-25-1796 in Jessamine Co., KY,) and Mariah Martins(born 4/23/99). They were married around 18l7, moved to Morgan County, Indiana. Two branches of the family agree that the Walters family pronounced their last name as if it was "Waters".

LaVonne Shulze, Sinclair's 2X great granddaughter has the 150th anniversary program of the Morgan County, Indiana Samaria Baptist church. It says the church was organized in the home of Levi Walters 1829.

Speaking with Marion Evilsizer Kelliher in 1965, Perlina's grandson Joe Amery said his grandmother Perlina told him that her parents went on a river trip after their wedding. A stranger on the boat tried to kiss Mariah and Levi challenged him to a duel. The boat was stopped; grave diggers made ready. Each man fired one shot, and the stranger was killed.

After their residency in Morgan County, Indiana, Levi and Mariah Walters, and Sinclair and Perlina Evilsizer moved to Missouri together and settled there.

Family migrated from Kentucky when 4 years old. Comments LaVonne Schulze in letter she wrote to Marion Kelliher: "My grand mother, Mary J. "Jennie" Evilsizer Foster, told me many stories her grandmother, Perlina, had told her. The favorite was about her great adventure traveling in the covered wagon with her father -- fording streams, etc. This seemed to be one of the great highlights of her life. This must have been the trip from Kentucky to Indiana. She never mentioned her m other, but always talked about her father -- seemed to idolize him."

Joe Amery also took me to the area of Braymer, Missouri, to the home of his brother John, whose wife fixed a big fried chicken lunch. They were very hospitable, showed me pictures and clippings, and talked about their Grandmother Perlina, whom they knew as children. The Amery brothers' sister was also named Perlina. (Parenthetically, Perlina is pronounced wi th a long "i", not "perleena".) Joe disputed John's clairm that their grandmother had smoked a pipe, but LaVonne Schulze told me that her father (another grandson of Perlina) told her that Perlina smoked a little clay pipe. She could not write, but made her "x" and her grandson John Amery (not Joe Amery) wrote letters for her.

I was delighted with the hospitality of my father's Missouri cousins and the generosity with which they furnished information. I loved getting the oral tales of real people (brother cousins arguing with each other as to whether their grandmother Perlina, whom they knew, smoked a cigar and was illiterate--the city cousin insisted to his country brother that it wasn't so). And also, the tales about their grandparents which I received from the descendants of Levi Hennings Evilsizer and Zachariah Evilsizer. From Marion Claire Evilsizer

Washington, west of the Cascades: historical and descriptive; the ..., Volume 2 By Herbert Hunt, Floyd C. Kaylor pg80
The history of Hoquiam and of the Grays Harbor country cannot be better told than by detailing many of the incidents of the life of James A. Karr, who lived until November, 1914, to tell the tale of the wonderful development of this section of the country, his memory forming a connecting link between the primitive past and the progressive present. Fifty-seven years have come and gone since he filed upon a claim in Chehalis, now Grays Harbor, county, in 1860, being then a young man of twenty-six years. Until that district emerged from pioneer conditions much of his life had been spent upon the frontier, for Indiana had taken on statehood only eighteen years before he was born on Little Indian creek, not far from Martinsville, Indiana, on the 18th of September, 1834. His earliest recollections are of playing on the sand on the bank of that creek with his little sister, who died after he left home. He has; no memory of his father save as he saw him in death, the grief of his mother impressing this sight indelibly upon the mind of the three-year-old boy. However, he remembers his grandfather Karr, a fine type of the Irish gentleman, dressed like a squire in leggings and hunting coat. After the death of the father, the mother took her children to a place near the home of her brother, Reuben Stepp, and there she became acquainted with a German of the name of Evilsizer, who was a widower with several children. She became his wife and they removed to Washington County, Illinois, Mr. Evilsizer having there purchased a farm on which was a comfortable brick residence. He expected to pay for this place by the sale of his property in Indiana, but not getting the money for this, he was compelled to leave that land and settled on an eighty-acre tract of raw land for which his son had contracted. Before he secured title to that place, however, he became ill and passed away.

James A. Karr and his brother Henry had worked with their stepfather in clearing and developing the land, but the family had no claim to it and were compelled to move again. They went to live in a little house beside the road and such was now the financial condition of the family that the mother was obliged to hire out in order to support her children. At length, however, they rented land and the two boys, who had a yoke of oxen, again began farming. Later the mother married a Mr. Storick and again the family moved, settling on a good farm in St. Clair county, Illinois, not far from St. Louis. There was much hard work to be done in the further clearing and cultivating of the land and the Karr brothers did their full share. Mr. Karr, however, recognized that his stepbrothers had little chance in life because of a lack of education and. that they would always have to depend upon severe manual labor. He often expressed a desire to attend school but received no assistance from Mr. Storick, although his mother encouraged the idea. At length, feeling that if he obtained an education it must be through his own efforts, he left home at the age of fourteen years and hired out for the summer, at a wage of five dollars per month. At harvest time a man who could swing a cradle or could bind after the cradle was paid a much better wage than the regular farm hand, and Mr. Karr proved that he could bind as well as men of twice or thrice his years. Accordingly he did work of that character, earning at first a dollar and afterward a dollar and a quarter per day, and the money thus gained was used in buying books and clothing, while by working on Saturdays and morning and night to pay for his board, he was able to attend school for several months that winter. He afterward entered upon an apprenticeship to the brickmaker's trade and the money which he earned through the summer months in that way enabled him to again attend school in the winter. One of his teachers, John Leeper, a graduate of McKendree College of Illinois, proved an inspiration to him and assisted him in every possible way in his studies. For six years Mr. Karr continued working in the summer and attending school in the winter, and finally, with a partner, he established and operated a brickyard, in which he won a measure of success that enabled him to pay his board and devote an entire year to study, in which time he acquired a knowledge of algebra, natural philosophy and astronomy. He was particularly interested in the first named and his fellow students often called upon him to assist in solving their problems. After that year he taught school for a term and then, inclined to the study of medicine, he spent some time in a drug store. All these experiences not only proved to him a means of earning a living at that period but gave him a fund of knowledge upon which he called in his later pioneer experiences in the northwest. He became one of the first school teachers and one of the first brickmakers of Chehalis county when some years later he established his home in the Grays Harbor country.

In 1855 following the discovery of gold in California, Mr. Karr and his brother decided to go to the mines, as this would enable them also to see something of the world. Returning to Indiana, Mr. Karr, who was then twenty-one years of age, settled his father's estate, his share thereof being about five hundred dollars, which furnished the brothers the capital for their trip. Proceeding to New York, they took passage on a steamer bound for Panama, crossed the Isthmus and thence proceeded northward to California, where they spent three years in the mines. They made Nevada City their headquarters but they did not find the expected fortune and in 1858, attracted by the Fraser river excitement, started north as passengers on the Anne Perry from San Francisco to Whatcom. There they purchased a small boat to go from Bellingham Bay to the Gulf of Georgia and thence up the Fraser river. Point Roberts extended into the gulf in a southeasterly direction for quite a distance. South of this point the water was quiet but on the river side there was a strong surf driven on by northwest wind. However, they decided to land on the north side in order to be ready to make the start up the river, but while so doing their boat filled with water and their provisions received a soaking, although little damage resulted. Proceeding up the river, they stopped at Fort Yale for a week or more in September, 1858, and there purchased Sockeye salmon from the Indians, which furnished them many an appetizing meal when the fish was fried in butter.
[ocr errors]

As the winter was coming on and there seemed no prospect of getting gold, the brothers returned southward, accompanied by their partner, John C. Gove, who became one of the pioneer settlers near Seattle. Purchasing their partner's interest, they started back to the Sound and at Olympia sold their boat proceeding on the trail with their packs. They spent the night on Mound Prairie at the home of a Mr. Goodell, whose son Ed had just been helping to make a survey of the land at Grays Harbor. He told of the country and of the river called Hoquiam, Mr. Karr and his brother retaining a distinct remembrance of this. However, the brothers proceeded to Portland to spend the winter and there entered the employ of Colonel Frush, who was building streets, for which purpose he hauled gravel from the Willamette river bars. In securing the gravel the brothers were able to earn three dollars per day and later they cut cordwood, for which they were paid a dollar and a half per cord and by working steadily they could earn three dollars per day in that way. In the spring James A. Karr ran the steam ferry across the Columbia, while his brother drove a team, but they never abandoned the idea of returning to Grays Harbor and in August made preparations for a trip into the new country. Returning to Olympia, they purchased cloth from which they made a tent and also laid in supplies for the trip. Proceeding on their way, they stopped for a time at the ranch of "Blockhouse" Smith at Cedarville and there proceeded to make a canoe. The cedar tree which they selected for the purpose split, so they secured a green cottonwood growing beside the river. They hewed this out and, wishing to hasten the work, they piled the canoe full of branches of vine maple, to which they set fire but found that they had burned a hole in the cottonwood. A thin board, oakum and pitch repaired the damage, and packing their supplies in the canoe, they started down the river, after two days reaching Cosmopolis, which was the metropolis of this country. The district was largely an unsettled and undeveloped region, the Metcalfs living at Montesano and the Scammons at Wynoochee, which was the county seat. From that point they proceeded to Hoquiam, rounding Cow Point and so coming into the mouth of the river. They landed where the first schoolhouse was afterward built, near the present site of the Hoquiam sash and door factory, and proceeding at once to the upland, Mr. Karr found a level green bench which dropped abruptly into the tidal prairie, where the grass grew tall among the scattered forest trees and a spring of clear water issued from the hillside. So attractive was the site that Mr. Karr decided to make it his home, while his brother chose a sight across the river. Then they began building a cabin of hemlock logs, chinked with dirt and soft sandstone. Inventive ingenuity was brought into play to protect their cabin and its supplies during their absence. The usual latchstring hung out, but instead of opening the latch, as was customary, when it was pulled it only shut the more tightly. But another string with a little block of wood attached was brought out further on and the end concealed with soft earth. It was this string that opened the door, but it would not be noticed by anyone who was not accustomed to such an arrangement. However, one day when the brothers were absent from home, Captain Winsor, a well known frontiersman, called. Used to all kinds of pioneer devices, he soon discovered their arrangement and he and his party entered the house, built a big fire and prepared a meal from supplies which they found. After they were gone the fire in some way spread to the timber, burning away the mantel and doing some damage to the interior, but fortunately the wet hemlock logs of which the cabin had been built proved fireproof, so the Karrs found their home only somewhat dismantled. They had met Captain Winsor and his friends, who told them of their visit but little dreamed of the result of their self-obtained hospitality.

As time passed on, the brothers continued the work of clearing and developing their places and in 1860, after making a trip to Olympia accompanied by Austin Young, James A. Karr established a brickyard at Cosmopolis, hoping thus to obtain ready money by supplying the commodity which the community greatly needed. He was not only associated in this undertaking with his brother but was also joined by Austin Young, Ed Campbell and David Byles. They furnished brick for the government barracks at Chehalis Point, and when the buildings •were abandoned after the war, Mr. Campbell bought one and moved it to Hoquiam, where it still stands on the east side of the river. The brick manufacturers furnished brick for' many of the fireplaces in the early homes and the income which they acquired enabled the Karr brothers to secure many needed supplies.

Olympia was a small village of about four or five hundred people when in March, 1860, Mr. Karr went there to enter his claim, which he secured as a preemption, the homestead law having not then been passed. When Chehalis county was formed James A. Karr was elected its first auditor and filled the office for twelve years. There was no salary attached to the position but the incumbent was allowed fees and three dollars per day for full time. In the winter of 1860 Mr. Karr taught the first school at Cosmopolis in a little building erected from lumber brought from Cedarville, while his own brickyard supplied the brick for the fireplace and chimney. He had twelve or fifteen pupils, for several families, including the Metcalfs, Goodell, Smith, Byles and Young families, were then living in the neighborhood. Christmas of that year was celebrated at the home of Mr. Goodell, with speaking, singing and a general good time. The families of the neighborhood gathered and the invitation was also extended to the soldiers stationed there. It was feared that the Indians, knowing that war was in progress among the whites of the north and the south, might go upon the warpath, so that a garrison was maintained at Chehalis Point and a blockhouse was erected at Cedarville. In the winter of 1861-2 Mr. Karr engaged in teaching at Montesano and as there was little money in the neighborhood he was largely paid in cattle, so that when he was ready to develop his farm he had quite a small herd of excellent cattle. In the winter of 1862-3 he taught at Mound Prairie. It was there that he had first heard of Grays Harbor when stopping at the Goodell home in 1859. One of the sons, Ed Goodell, had in the meantime married and removed to Forest Grove but Mr. Karr met him again at the close of the school term of 1863.

It was an occasion that, seemingly trivial, proved a most momentous one in the life of Mr. Karr, for Mr. Goodell showed him the picture of an attractive looking woman saying that he would give him the picture if he would take it to the original. In a spirit of fun Mr. Karr took the picture and about that time, desiring to see his brother on business matters and thinking that he might find work at harvesting or masonry and thus bring in money needed for carrying on the farm at Hoquiam, he started for the place where his brother was working, not far from Hillsboro, between Portland and Forest Grove, Oregon. In the course of a conversation with the woman with whom his brother boarded Mr. Karr chanced to say that he had the picture of a very nice looking girl. On seeing it the woman exclaimed: "Why, I know her. That's Abbie Walker and she is teaching at Hillsboro, only about a quarter of a mile away." She proposed that they visit the schoolhouse about the time the school would be closed. This plan was carried out and Mr. Karr walked with the young lady to her boarding house, which was some distance from the school. The old-time pioneer hospitality was extended him by the people of the house and after remaining there through the night he next day accompanied the young lady to school and they planned a ride together to her home at Forest Grove, where they spent the following Saturday and Sunday. The acquaintance progressed rapidly and when Miss Walker spoke of making a trip east of the mountains to visit the scenes of her childhood near Spokane, Mr. Karr replied that it would be a long, tedious journey and he wanted her to go to Hoquiam with him. An immediate marriage was agreed upon and was celebrated at the Walker home September 14, 1863, the bride's father, the Rev. Elkanah Walker, being the officiating clergyman, assisted by Rev. Chamberlain of Portland, vvho was then visiting at their home. The wedding trip consisted of a visit to the State Fair at Salem and a trip to Mound Prairie.

Mr. Karr was engaged to teach the Black River school that winter and in the spring he went to the farm to start the work, his wife remaining to finish out the two months of school. In the latter part of March he returned and accompanied his wife down the river to the homestead which they occupied for forty years. They earnestly undertook the task of developing the place and the labors of both were soon evident in its transformation and improved appearance. The first year they had ten cows and butter constituted their chief export. Mr. Karr remained continuously upon the farm save for the years 1875, 1882 and 1893, when he represented his district in the state legislature. Chehalis was a republican county, but as it did not contain enough people to form a district, the legislature resorted to gerrymandering when the democrats were in power and Chehalis was attached at various periods to different districts. It was first joined to Pierce, and although a republican stood no chance of winning, Mr. Karr made speeches throughout Pierce county, which was strongly democratic. At that time he was defeated, but when Pierce and Chehalis counties were again joined Mr. Karr received a large majority in Pierce and said that he thought the speeches he made several years before must have just begun to take effect. As a member of the legislature he carefully considered the vital questions which came up for consideration and gave his support to many measures which have been farreaching in their beneficial effects. He always kept in close touch with the questions and issues of the day from the time when he acted as secretary of the first political meeting held in Grays Harbor in 1860, on which occasion Governor Stevens was in the midst of his campaign for delegate to congress.

Mr. Karr actively continued the work of the farm and for ten years the family lived in the original log cabin, although some additions and improvements were added thereto. In 1874 he planned to build a new home, bringing lumber from Elma, doors and window sash from Tutnwater and brick from a schooner that had carried its cargo from Portland. Mr. Karr quarried the stone for two fireplaces from the bluff across the river and secured shingles at Montesano.
When materials were thus assembled a story and a half house was erected, facing the south and overlooking the waters of the bay. It was a period when the settlers had to depend upon their own labor for nearly all supplies and Mr. Karr undertook the task of tanning leather, at first using smartweed and other ingredients from the east, but he discovered the astringent properties of hemlock and alder bark and from those made his tanning materials. After producing leather this was cut up and shaped into boots and shoes for the family, Mr. Karr making the lasts and pegs, and the shoes it is said "made up in durability for what they lacked in elegance." All garments, even those for the boys, were homemade and raincoats were made of unbleached cotton soaked in linseed oil. Mr. Karf's former experience as a drug clerk enabled him to provide remedies for his family when there was no physician near at hand and not infrequently he was called upon to prescribe for his neighbors. He contributed to the social enjoyment of the community by his violin music, having studied in Nashville, Illinois, and afterward in Nevada City, California. While teaching at Cosmopolis he gave instruction in music as well as in the common branches. It was at Mr. Karr's suggestion that a trail was opened from Elma to Olympia over which horses and cattle could be driven, and this trail proved the predecessor of the stage road when a stage line brought the community into seemingly close connection with the capital. Later Mr. Karr and Mr. Campbell were owners of a big shovel-nosed canoe, with which they took their farm produce up the river in the fall, finishing the journey by wagon, and on the return they brought with them provisions to last for a year. They had little trouble with the Indians in that locality, although when the Modoc war was in progress it seemed that there might be an uprising at Grays Harbor.

Mr. and Mrs. Karr became the parents of twelve children, namely: Mary Olive, the wife of H. L. Gilkey, who is cashier of the First National Bank of Southern Oregon at Grants Pass, Oregon; Beatrice Abigail, now Mrs. H. B. McNeill, of Aberdeen; Elkanah Walker, deceased; Cyrus James, who is captain of the lightship Umatilla, stationed near the Bay station; Henry Anderson, twin of Cyrus, who died at the age of fourteen; Phoebe Rose, now Mrs. Johnson, of Centfalia; John Ross, a twin of Phoebe, who is a resident of North Yakima; Ruth, now the wife of J. S. McKee, of Hoquiam; William Hay, deceased; Eunice Viola, who resides with her mother in North Yakima; Levi Zebulon, a resident of North Yakima: and Arthur Thompson, of North Yakima, who married Harriet Chadwick, a daughter of Judge Chadvvick. On the I4th of September, 1913, at North Yakima, Mr. and Mrs. Karr celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.

Mr. and Mrs. Karr gave their children good educational opportunities. School was held during the summer months, and when the term was over, the big family bedroom at home was converted into a schoolroom, with homemade desks, and the parents acted as instructors to their children until the older sisters were able to assume the task of teaching. Mr. Karr was advanced in his ideas concerning education and believed firmly that girls should be given the same chance as boys and accordingly his daughters received as good educational advantages as his sons. Three daughters graduated from the University of Washington and Mrs. McKee has a Master of Arts degree and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, admission to which is gained only by high scholarship. Mr. Karr took a great deal of pride in Mrs. McKee's fine scholastic record. In winter a society was formed which was practically a parliamentary law club\emdash the first on the Harbor\emdash and Mr. Karr acted as president. His children received training therefore along that line and the instruction has proven valuable in later years. With the passing of pioneer conditions the Karr farm, owing to the progressive spirit of the owner, took on all of the improvements of modern times and through his business ability Mr. Karr won very substantial success, his estate becoming valuable. In 1904 the family removed to North Yakima, where his last years were spent and where his widow still resides. He died of apoplexy on the night of November 4, 1914. He had been keenly interested in the general election which took place on the preceding day and particularly in the fate of the prohibition law, had voted and seemed in his usual health. He was a stanch republican in his political belief and fraternally was a Mason and a charter member of the Hoquiam lodge of that order. Although there were many happy memories of early times, he looked back with no sigh of regret to the past but rejoiced in the progress of the present and kept in touch with the trend of modern thought. He had passed the eightieth milestone on life's journey when called by death, but old age need not suggest as a matter of course idleness and want of occupation. There is an old age which grows stronger and brighter mentally and morally as the years go on and gives out of its rich stores of wisdom and experience for the benefit of others. Such was the recosd of James A. Karr.

Kills Sheriff and marshall
Nashville ILL is Scene of Shooting
Murder, Seeking Man Who Was About to Wed Daughter, Then Wounds Himself
Nashville, ILL June 21-Nashville is quiet following threats of mob vilence when Hiram Rice, former city marshall shot and instantly killed Sheriff J K May and City Marshall August Lueker. Rice fired upon the two officials when they attempted to disarm him after he threatened to kill John Evilsizer Jr, who planned to marry Rice's daughter later in the afternoon. Rice gave his consent to the marriage two weeks ago but apparentley took a sudden dislike to Evilsizer during the past several days. The daughter is sixteen years old. Rice was probably fatally wounded by a bullet from Lueker's revolver and was taken to city hospital at Mount Vernon. It was said at the hospital that Rice would die within 48 hours unless there was an unexpected change for the better. Mayor Henry Krughoff, who closed the saloons immediatley after the shooting, has ordered that they remain closed until Friday night. All Nashville is preparing to attend the funerals of the two officials, who were very popular here.

[HI61] (Research):The Day They Shot County Sheriff May From: The Nashville News Date: unknown By: Don Lehnhoff

The story is the type that makes for a good Country and Western ballad. The best part is it's all true.

It concerns a unique bit of Washington County history, recollecting the saga of the only County Sheriff ever to lose his life in the performance of his duty.

It was resurrected recently by Bill Temme when he found what he believes to be one of the bullets fired in the historic shoot out, Temme found the bullet lodged inside the southwest wall of the L & N Depot building now under renovation by the County Historical Society. The bullet was discovered while replacing worn weather boards. "I'd been looking for it for the last year and half," said Temme, who has researched the depot building and its historic significance. "Everybody said it (evidence from the shoot out) was in the southwest corner and that's the only hole on the south side." Temme hopes to determine the caliber of the bullet as a final way of proving who fired the shot. It is logical to assume the bullet cam from the gun of Assistant City Marshall, August Leker, one of three men who died as the result of a confrontation on Wednesday, June 20, 1917. Leker and Sheriff, Jacob "Jake" May had been summoned to the Jankowski salo on which was housed next to the depot around 12:30 P.M. on June 20, to disarm Hiram Rice. Rice, who had taken a shotgun into the saloon and was threatening to shoot John Evilsizer, Jr., his 20 year old perspective son-in-l aw. Evilsizer and Rice's 16-year-old daughter, Ella, planned to be married. In fact, the parents of both had applied for a marriage license earlier that year, but because Ella was under 16, the license had been denied. June 20 was Ella's 16th birthday. Rice had changed his mind about them arriage and now threatened to shoot Evilsizer rather than see the marriage confirmed. Rice was a 60-year-old former City Marshall and had been president of the local miner's union for the last 20 years. He had been suffering from rheumatism and until the day of the shoot out, walked with the a id of crutches. But on that Wednesday, Rice visited several saloons in Nas hville before going to the Jankowski place. When May and Leker confronted Rice on the street between the saloon and the depot, outside the establishment, Rice threatened May with a raised shotgun. "You saw that" said May as Leker pulled a revolver and fired five shots at Rice, missing him with all five. Rice blasted his shotgun into Leker's chest, reloaded, then shot May in the back of his head before he fell to the ground, wounded in the abdomen by one of three bullets fired by May, according to Newspaper reports. Customers from the saloon ran outside to find May and Leker both dead and Rice mortally wounded. Rice was transported to Mt. Vernon hospital where an operation proved useless. He died after signing a confession four days later. In the flowery prose of the Nashville Journal Newspaper of June 28, 1917: "Rice passed from the reach of human courts to face the Supreme Judge." Rice was given no chance of recovery after the operation in Mt. Vernon found the bullet lodged in his hipbone and pierced five intestines. "Sinking spells set in," but before he died he stated that it was a bullet from Leker's gun which had struck home. He claimed Leker fired first. Witnesses at a Coroner's Jury held the day of the shooting differed as to whom fired first. Most said it was Leker. Rice was disarmed after the shooting by Leo Jankowski, the saloon owner a veteran of the Spanish-American War. Rice surrendered without a struggle. Rice was kept under armed guard at his home to prevent a get-away or possible lynching before he was transported to the Mt. Vernon hospital Wednesday night. Thousands of County residents attended the funerals of May and Leker. Leker had been born in Nashville on April 29, 1881. May was born in Lettveiler, Germany on November 17, 1871. He had first been elected Sheriff in 1914 and was the second of five May family members to hold the position in Washington County, since Illinois became a state in 1818. Jacob May was Sheriff from 1874-1878; William H. May was Sheriff from 1922-1926, a cousin, Freeman F. Kaser was Sheriff from 1958-1962 and A. Virgil May was Sheriff from 1962-1966. The day after the shooting, Ella Rice and John Evilsizer again applied for a marriage license but were denied by County Clerk Heckert "under the circumstances." Ella and John eventually married and had a number of children and remained married until death. Newspaper reports identified the bullet, which killed Rice as a 32-calibre. Rice was using a 16- gauge shotgun. The identity of the revolvers used by May and Leker was not given. From the Coroner's Jury testimony, however, the angles indicate the position of the bullet found in the L & N Depot could be one fired at Rice by either Leker or May. The likelihood that it came from Leker 's gun is prevalent due to the extreme closeness of his shots to the window of the depot where the bullet was found. The bullet was found three feet from the corner of the depot building about two and one half feet above ground level. Newspaper accounts say Rice was standing about three feet away from the corner of the building on the southwestern side.

Ivan graduated from Sullivan Public High School in Sullivan, Missouri in 1945. He enlisted in the Army for about a year and was sent overseas to Germany for most of that time. He married Helen in 1946, shortly before he went overseas. When he returned, he and Helen moved to Dallas, Texas.

Ivan attended Draughon's College in Dallas where he studied accounting and business management. His first job was with Excel Products as Office Manager. He worked for Howard Van Lines, and it was there that he met Woodie Jarmon who owned a van lines in Wichita Falls, Texas, and he hired Ivan to move there and work for him as Office Manager.

Several years later, when the Jarmon brothers started using van lines money to put into oil well ventures, the company began losing money and Ivan resigned from Jarmons. He moved his family to Mobile, Alabama where they stayed for three months and then returned to Texas - to the Dallas area. After eight months, Ivan and Helen moved to Los Angeles, California and stayed about five years. They then moved from Los Angeles to Tampa, Florida.

Ivan worked for Yocam Batteries in Tampa, and they transferred him to Jacksonville as Regional Manager of their branch office in Jacksonville. Ivan left Yocam to work as Controller for Montgomery Ward in Jacksonville. Later, they transferred him to Tallahassee where they were opening a new store.

Ivan and Helen left Florida the end of February of 1972 and moved to San Diego, California. Ivan first worked as Controller for Montgomery Ward in San Bernardino where they were opening a new store. Then, he worked for a Health Food Store in La Jolla. Later, he worked for El Poco Candle and Gift Shoppes. When Mr. Smith died, he started working for Ponto Corp. in Carlsbad. He was Vice-President of Finance at both Ponto and El Poco.

Ivan had open-heart surgery for replacement of a heart valve in 1989, and then retired a year later, in 1990. He continued to work for short periods as a Consultant for Gary Randall with Ponto Corp up until his death on January 1, 1997.

Personal observations on places he lived:
Kansas City, Missouri- It rained 22 days in a row which brought about a sudden departure. Bought a 1934 Pontiac to make the drive to Dallas. Paid $1 50 down and financed the balance of $200. The car used 26 quarts of o il on the trip.
Dallas Texas- The cleanest city I ever lived.
Wichita Falls, Texas-Arrived in august of 1953 and saw the first rain August of 1953. The dust was so thick, the prairie dogs dug holes 20 feet in the air.
Mobile, Alabama- Best fishing in my life.
Los Angeles, California-Liked the weather, but did not like the people who lived there.
Tampa and Jacksonville, Florida-Not much difference between the two; Ninety degrees in the shade and 99% humidity. Summer rains every day and winter rains every other day. Grew web feet after 13 years.
San Diego, California- Chamber of Commerce City- Perfect everything. America's best kept secret.

[MI72] (Medical):Emphezima from smoking for many years. Health deteriorated after heart surgery in Feb, 1989.

When she and Ivan left Texas and moved to Mobile, Alabama, she worked for a law firm. In Los Angeles, she worked as secretary to the Sales Manager for General Mills.

While Helen and Ivan were in Tampa, most of the time she did not work outside the home. She did work for a short period as a secretary for an electrical company.

In Jacksonville, Florida, she first worked as a secretary for a cruise line company, and then later for short periods she worked with Kelly Girls, a temporary agency company. She also worked for Kelly Girls in Tallahassee, FL

When she and Ivan moved to San Diego, California, she first worked with Triple A and then later, for a few years, she worked for Kelly Girls and Manpower Temporary Agency. Most of the time in San Diego, Helen had not worked outside the home.

She was a talented painter and many of her paintings are displayed in several states. Her children have most of her paintings today.

Helen's maternal grandfather was Benjamin Morrison Board. Benjamin was the Great Great Grandson of Cornelius Board

Cornelius Board (ca.1690-1745) was the Founder of the Board family in America. He came from Sussex, England in 1730 with his wife, Elizabeth, and two young sons, James and David; James was ten, born in 1720, and David w as three, born in 1727. He settled first at Bloomfield, New Jersey, then later at Boardville, Pompton Township, Passaic County, New Jersey.

Cornelius was a Civil Engineer and Surveyor. He was sent by Alexander Lord Sterling to search the mountains of northern New York and New Jersey for copper ore, but he found not copper but iron in great abundance. He named the place Sterling after his patron, and he built the first forge the rein the years, 1730 to 1736. The first iron made in that part of the country was made by Cornelius Board, and it is absolutely certain that this first Sterling Forge was the beginning of the works that later made iron for cannon balls used in the Revolution; also, for the great chain that stretched across the Hudson at West Point.

Benjamin's grandfather was Philip Schuyler Board who descended from the famous Schuyler's of New York. Philip's mother was Janneke Ann Schuyler who was a great great granddaughter of Philip Schuyler and Marguerita Van Slichtenhorst. President George Bush also descends from Phillip Schuyler.

Helen's maternal grandmother was Dora Elizabeth Nuckolls. The Nuckolls Worldwide Kindred Society published "The First Virginia Nuckolls and Kindred, Book II", copy write 2000, Higginson Books. Daughter Sandra Jean is Secretary-Treasurer of this Society and compiled the information for the book .

Tom and I moved temporarily to San Diego to be caregivers for my mother. We were there during the last 7 weeks of her life. It was so sad to see her in so much pain. Although it was both a physical and spiratual battle, God sustained us through it. I feel blessed that I was able to be by her side and tell her each day how much I loved her. She will be truly missed in this world, but looking forward to reuniting with her again in the new heaven and earth.

Family Grudge Ends in Death of Charles Evilsizer
Lamar Mo May 28- Charles Evilsizer, a farmer, living six miles north of here, was shot and instantly killed in the subrubs of this city at 7 o'clock this evening by G W Herndon, a wealthy cattle dealer. Four shots were fired, one severing Evilsizer's jugular vein. He died in a few minutes. An inquest was held. Herndon has given himself up. The cause of the shooting is an old family grudge. Charles Evilsizer was a nephew of J Evilsizer, of Butler, who left monday morning with his family for Lamar to attend the funeral. We are unable at this hour to get the cause of the shooting.

Hernodon Bound Over
Wife of his victim Gives Testimony Which Tends to Help His Case.
Lamar Mo- June 4- George W Herndon, who shot and killed George (sic) Evilsizer, a farmer in the north part of this city last Saturday morning had a preliminary hearing before Judge Allen yesterday and was bound over to court in the sum of $10,000. He has not yet given bail. Mrs Evilsizer was the first witness. She testified that as they were passig=ng through the north part of the city Saturday evening on their way home, they caught up with Herndon, who was walking along the road. Her husband commenced cursing at Herndon and told him he had ruined an innocent girl. Herndon called her husband a liar, at which juncture he dropped the lines and jumped out of the wagon toward Herendon who asked what he watned. Her husband kept moving toward Herndon, who drew his revolver and shot four or five times. She testified that her husband had cursed Herndon at different times. Herndon employed H C Timmonds Messrs Thurman & Wray and Solce and Burnett to defend him. Van Poole and Martin assisted. Prosecuting attorney Moore. Herndon was accompanied by his wife and daughter from the court to the jail and they sat beside him during the trial. Circuit court convenes in this city next Monday and the case will probably be disposed of during the term. The defense offered no testimony at the preliminary, but they probably will make a vigerous plea of self-defense in the trial proper. Mrs Evilsizer won the admiration of every person in the courtroom, which was crowded by her turthful statement regarding the shooting although it was very detrimental to her dead husband. The county jail has been strongly guarded every night this week to protect Herndon from mob vilence. There is much apprehension as to his safety should he return to his home in the north part of town near where the killing occured.

Are you familiar with this family re any possible c hildren (I notice that she died at a very young age)? I'm researching t he LIZER family to which she belongs, namely her father, Frank, his fath er Eli, and Eli's father John, who was almost certainly the broth er of my grgr-gfather George. Have followed Frank from Iowa to Kansas ( in the records) and am now taking a look at the children. Am especially i nterested in any living descendants who are researching the LIZER famil y. Thank you in advance for any information that you might be able to gi ve me.

[HI431] (Research):Parentage not proven I found a long time ago an Elizabeth Idle b 10Jul1784 bap 15Aug 1784 Daughter of Peter and Maria: sponsors were: Carl Lubold and wf Elizabeth. This was recorded in St. Paul's Amity Twp. Berks PA. We have nothing that states that Elizabeth born in BERKS Co, Pa 10Jul1784 is the one and same Betsy that Martin signed the bond for. This would make her age at death 59, but she was 57, proven by a Pellon rubbing.
When I found her birth date at St. Pauls and there WERE Evilsizers's in the same church at same time, I threw that out to Flossie as a possibility. She agreed it COULD be. BUT unless she found proof, I don't know if one and same. There were other Edel families in Berks at same time.At any rate she was NOT a sib of MARTIN's

The record in St. Paul's names Elizabeth parents as Peter and Maria. Edel. Now if we could find proof that Peter was a relative to Martin whom we do think was born in what is now Lancaster. He was however in Bucks by 1778 and then in 1790 moved to VA. We never found a Peter Eitel in VA. So many ???

Now another clue was that Henry was bound to a Culp and a person with same name did appear in the 1790 Bucks Co census. There are a lot of things that say, she COULD be but we lack proof, unless Flossie found it and didn't tell me. There are several errors floating around concerning Martin Idle/Eitel and his family, many are just plain wrong data and some are conjecture, nei ther of which I would incorporate as FACT.
It's funny all of this came to my attention through an Idle researcher from CA. He had received an "updated" Idle list which contained the FACT th at Betsy in VA, WAS Elizabeth born in Berks, BUT had her as the sist er of Martin, NO the one born that date in Berks was daughter of Peter. Unless 2 girls with same name born in same place , exact same date differe nt parents. The record for Martins birth lists his parents as JOHN and Eli zabeth not Peter and Maria. Another error on the list sent to Terry was that Christina Idle born 1775 Berks married a William Morris in Fincastle, WRONG again, Christian b 1775 married a Jacob Morris in St. Paul's, Berks in 1795. (Phyllis Dingeman)

[XI431] Today was a long day but it was somewhat productive for all of us Evilsizors. Flossie received a book from Pat Stickley of Burial places in Champaign County. This book was compiled by Caroline R. Nixon and Emma Nixon Bolt on in 1936. It states that Henry and Elizabeth Evilsizor were buried in the Wells Cemetery on Elm Tree Road near Fletcher, Champaign County, Ohio. We had heard this before but could never find their tombstones. Alas, today we found the stone of Elizabeth. The writing on the stone is as follows; Elizabeth wife of Henry Evelsizor( note the spelling) Died Sept.6 1843 aged 57 years. We did not, however, find a stone for Henry. I dug next to Elizabeths stone, on the left, and found lots of pieces of what looked like slate, but no writing. We will look for an obit now that we know her death date. Bob & Flossie Hulsizer

[HI433] (Research):The descendants of Christopher McCarty were furnished by Sue Beck, 1650 Mi chael Dr, Schereville, IN 46375 Christopher had a child James in North Carolina by an unknown spouse. Chri stopher was widowed by 1850. In the 1850 census he had come to Pulas ki Co from Montgomery Co, where he was in 1840. In 1850 he instituted a co urt case in which he sued the estate of his father-in-law, Henry Evilsize r, to get settlement for his children. In the early 1860's, his son Willi am was declared insane. William and his guardian sued Christopher for mon ey owed to William. Christopher sued his stepson in the late 1860's ov er a land deal. Christophers burial site is unknown but may be an unmark ed grave in Sutton Cemetery near his daughter Elizabeth Huffman.

[HI434] (Research):When the Sheriff of Champaign County, Ohio advertised in the "Western Citi zen & Urbana Gazette" newspaper for the sale of Henry Evilsizor's Real Est ate on Nov 23, 1849, they named Henry's children with the son Henry first. The last named was "two unknown children of Patsy and James Boggs, deceased."

No census records have been found, although a mention of living in Io wa in one of the estate papers. There is, however in 1820 Champaign Co, Census Pg 458 a James Baggs-210010 -20100. If this James, he would have a previous wife, if not, it is a poss ible father.

"I turn to an old record of Section 16 of the Township, in connection with those who supported the school:... Wm Baggs, James Baggs, MartinIdle, John Idle, Jacob Idle, Henry Evilsizer

[HI435] (Research):There is a marriage recorded in Fincastle, Botetourt Co, VA of James Baggs /Boggs to Mary IDLE performed 22 Dec 1803 by Ed Mitchell. As the Evilsizer and Idle families migrated from Fincastle at the same time, I would suspect this is the same James. Iowa records were searched in 1850 (Lee Co, 29th Dist) . The only James Boggs was 43 married to an Amelia age 27. No older children in the household that would represent children of Patsey. Indiana records were also researched, as IA was used in early records for Indiana. A Wiliam Baggs married a Sohpia Idle in 1803 Botetourt Co, VA. Another researcher Charlene Baggs 6938 Lewis Center Rd Ga lena Ohio 43021

Research on the Baggs surnamed has turned up the following clues:

Jacob left his children in Champaign County Ohio when he moved to Jay County Indiana. The children by his first wife were left with various families.

In the voter listing of 8 October 1811, Urbana Township, the re was one Thomas Wert listed. However, he was not located in the 1820 cen sus nor any census list. The surname of "Wert" may have been inaccurate ly translated from "West." At this point, just how closely related the var ious families were is undetermined. It also appears that members of the We rt family arrived in Champaign County at various eras. Perhaps, the fath er and a few of the children came first and finding the area to their liki ng enticed the other members of the family to settle in the area. Francis Wert, born circa 1789, probably died after the enumeration of t he 1860 census, may have been born in New York. In the 1860 census of John son Township he was listed as the Postmaster of Johnson Township, thus w as probably living in St. Paris, Champaign County, Ohio. This position w as obtained after Jesse Long stepped out of the office. In the 1840 cens us Francis' wife was living, being born circa 1780-1790, however, she appe ars to have been deceased by the 1850 census. In this census they had o ne daughter living at home, who is surely Larine/L./Susene Wert who marri ed James McFerren/McPheran. For the purpose of this study we will assume t hat Francis Wert was the father of at least several of the children in t he area, and may be the father of the Wert families who were in Shelby, Lo gan and Miami Counties of Ohio also. As there appears to be quite a gap be tween the ages of the children listed here, it is more than probable th at several of the children settled in the surrounding area of Champaign Co unty. I.

[NI444] From "The History of Champaign Co", June, 1999 Taken from his obituary in The Champaign Democrat, Urbana, Champaign Count y, Ohio, Thursday, August 11, 1892 William Evilsizor, Sr was born in Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia) June 8, 1808. He emigrated to Champaign County, Ohio, with his parents about 1814. The Evilsizor's came originally from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. In the fertile valley of Mad River Township, Champaign County, they settled on the farm of Abraham Pence, later owned by W S Garret. The County then was a dense forest. The red man and wild animals were common features. Many trees had been felled, in order to make a way for their present home, and it is certain that the deceased did his share of the work for his life of industry, economy, and honest integrity. Here he prospered, sufficient to gain means which placed him beyond want. William Evilsizor, Sr and Nancy Jenkins were married December 10, 1829, in Champaign County, Ohio. Their marriage applications noted that Edward Jenkins, brother to nancy, made oath that his father gave consent. To this happy union were born thirteen children, seven sons and six daughters. After 29 years, their happy union was severed by death of the wife, which occurred February 15, 1858, at the age of 44 years. Again he was married May 26, 18 59 to Frances Jane Allison. They had seven children, four sons and three daughters. After 26 years, their union was severed by the death of his second wife on March 31, 1885, at the age of 54 years. Mr Evilsizor has 20 children. 11 sons and 9 daughters. About 14 years before his death, he united with the Harmony Baptist Church. He was baptized by his brother Rev Henry Evilsizor who was a minister in the Christian Church. To this church, he proved faithful until death, leaving two aged brothers, Squire and Allen. He departed this life July 25, 1892 aged 84years, 1 month, 15 days. Of this family death has now removed a loving and kind father, mother, and step-mother, 4 brothers and 2 sisters, while 7 brothers and 7 sisters with a large number of grand and great grandchildren. It has been said that Mr Evilsizor was a large portly man with a black beard, who could crack a hickory nut with his teeth at age 80. William Evilsizor, and his two wives are buried in the Nettle Creek Cemetery, Mad River Township, about a mile south of Westville.
By June O York, gg-gd of William Evilsizor

By George Weldon Evilsizor
William became a member of the Baptist Church when he was 20 years old. In politics he was a Democrat and probably voted for Van Buren in 1887. His occupation was farming. his farm was located in the mad River valley about six miles south of Urbana where he lived with his wife and family in a crude manner. Their household furniture and kitchen utensils were limited to just necessary things. Some of the farm machinery and tools they used were breaking plow, harrow, sythe for cutting grass which was used for hay. They cradled their wheat, faliled out the grain and planted and gathered their corn by hand. Their small tools consisted of two axes, a garden spade and a wooden maul. Their livestock consisted of a tram of horses, some cows and a few hogs and chickens. Their only way of travel was by foot, horseback or farm wagon. Most of their bedding and clothing was made by hand in the home. The house, barn and other buildings we rebuilt from hewed logs. Some years later the buildings were replaced with more modern equipment.

«i» As, most the Evilsizor's in Champaign County today descend from William, I chose this as the logical location to include the article from the Family Reunion in 1933. Some names are mentioned that I have not found connections for«/i» .

Springfield Daily News, Thursday, August 24, 1933 The 12 annual reunion of the Evilsizor family was held Sunday at the ho me of Mr and Mrs Frank Evilsizor, west of Bowlusville.

Members were in attendance from Indiana, Troy, Piqua, Richwood, DeGraff, Bellefontaine, Urbana, Terre Haute, St Paris, Westville, Tremont and Springfield.

Memorial of Father Allen E Evilsizer was born in Dark County, Ohio, April 16, 1814, died at
his daughters, one and one-half miles south of Collett, Jay County, Ind, Feb ruary 12, 1893, age 74 years, 10 months and 29 days. He leaves four daughters and two sons to mourn their loss. His dear companion died march 14, ei ght years ago; since that time he has lived with his children. During his sickness he often expressed that he loved his children and would
like to stay with them, but he was willing to go. During his severe sickness, of nearly six weeks, he bore the suffering with patience. He has lived a constant Christian life for a great many years; at the time of his death he held his membership with the Christian Church. During his suffering he talked of different passages of the scripture; it was consoling to him to have them read and have songs, of his selection sung, such as "Near er My God To Thee". Before his death he selected the text to be used for his funeral from Rev 14 Chapter, 13th verse and also the songs "Nearer My God To Thee" and "All Hail the Power of Jesus Name". He requested Rev P C Bechdolt to preach his funeral. He often called his children about him admonished them to be good; his last words was for them to live Godly. On the account of the sickness of Rev Bechdolt, there was no sermon preached. His remains was intermented in the Clay Comb Cemetery, one and a half mile west of the Green Post Office. The friends hope to have the funeral sermon preached in the future.

We miss thee from home dear father We miss thee from thy place; A shadow o'er our life is cast We miss the sunshine of thy face.

We miss thy kind and loving hand Thy fond and ernest care; Our home is dark without thee We miss thee everywhere.

He has left his earthly mansion And has gone to heaven above; There to rest forever with Jesus Where all is peace and love.

Hereaft ones, do not mourn Death will have his way; Remember that in heaven That sickle does not sway.

He has gone to heaven And left us here to dwell Such was the will of the master Who doeth all things well.

....At first Squire Evilsizor worked out as a farm hand, but later he farmed for himself, finally moving to Urbana township, where he died in Tremont City at the advanced age of eighty-four years, and his wife at the age of seventy-nine years. They were members of the hickory Grove Church. The father was first a Whig and later a Republican. To Squire and Christina Evilsizor eleven children were born, namely; Mary, the wife of James Dye, the former of Marion County, Ohio, but later of Nebraska, where her death occurred; Solomon who was a farmer in Urbana township, this county, died in 1915; Rebecca, who first married Joseph Bisset of Pennsylvania, and secondly Joshua Zerkle, both are now deceased; Lewis, who served in t he Civil War, established his home in Tremont City, Ohio; Eliza, wife of J ohn Fanning, Westville, Ohio; John T; Isaac, a farmer in Clark County, Ohio; Sarah who married Andrew Shafer, of Quincey, Ohio; Rose Etta, wife of Thomas Nitchman of Terre Haute, Ohio; Charles Wesley, retired farmer, Tremont City, this state; and Jasper, who died in infancy.

[DI450] Champaign Democrat, August 17, 1899.. Tremont City, Rev Evilsizor held religious services at the Home of Esq Evilsizor, who is seriously sick, Monday evening."

From Champaign Democrat Obituary, August 31, 1899
The funeral of Esquire Evilsizor was largely attended Friday which was held at Nettle Creek Church near Westville. He was a son of Major Henry Evilsizor, a soldier of the war of 1812, was born in Page County, Va. while his father was in the service of his country on the 10th day of May, 1812, and died at Tremont City on the 23rd day of August, 1899, aged 87 years, 3 months and 13 days. He came with his parents from Virginia in 1815 when but 3 years of age, and settled with them in Mad River Township Champaign County on the David Pence farm within a mile east of Nettle Creek Church. The church was not even located, nor probably thought of, as about where it now stands there were camped in large numbers the red men of the forest, with the smaller ones of whom he many times played in his boyhood days as was it his pleasure to often relate. How changed the scene, so much so that we can scarcely realize the fact.
He was married to Miss Christine Comer in 1832, when but 20 years of age, with whom he lived happily until eight years ago, when she departed this life. From this union sprung 11 children, 46 sons and 5 daughters, of whom 10 still survive him, as well as 56 grandchildren and 27 great- grand-children.
The most of his life was spent in Champaign County, but the last few years he has lived in Tremont City. He was one of those sturdy pioneers of the Mad River Valley, who has done his full share of clearing away the mighty forest and preparing the soil to support the great population that h as since and is now living therefrom. He has always enjoyed the respect and confidence of his neighbors wherever he lived. He and his wife joined the Hickory Grove Church known as a Baptist congregation near Urbana. Theyboth lived quiet and exemplary lives and none who know them doubt not that they have gone to that happy rest prepared by Christ for his redeemed.

From Tibbitts Research Doc
The farm where L.M.Evilsizer lived and where my Mother, Bertha Pearl Vincent and her sister Netina«sup»-«/sup» Vincent were born (not certain about Lauren and Ray) was obtained from«b» «/b»the U.S. government in'1836 by Jacob G. Fouts. The land continued with his heirs and they to Sarah I. Briggs and to other Fouts, then to Ishmael Bunch and John S. Bunch. They sold it to John Evilsizer and his wife 1852. John in turn sold it to his brother Leonard,1853 After Leonard's death, the estate seems to have taken some time to be settled; various documents are referred to in this respect. The beneficiar ies named were his wife Frances, and 7 children, Minor Evilsizer, Priscilla Evilsizer, Sarah Vincent, Mary Holmes, Margaret Mason, Lewis and Albert Evilsizer. Later portions in this abstract regarding settlement of this estate, mention Minor Evilsizer and his wife Jane; Albert Evilsizer and his wife Caroline, Lewis N. Evilsizer and his wife Ruth, and Margaret Mason. One date re-garding the settlement of this estate was 1886. The above persons deeded sale of the land to Wm. N. McKinley. David & Sarah Vincent and Henry and Priscilla Duckett, gave a warranty deed Feb.4,1887. It was recorded further that another-portion of land was deeded to Wm. M. McKinley being recorded ed Apr. 4, 1891, this being acknowledged before ' a notary public in Montgomery County (id.). A similar warranty deed by Mary F. Holmes and John Holmes to McKinley on Feb. 4, 1887, also signed in Montgomery, County.
The abstract states that in Oct.1885 Minor Evilsizer was in a problem over an unpaid note, and the sheriff left a copy of summons at Minor's home. Frances, wife of LM Evilsizer, died Sept.21,1886, estate completed by 1889.

The following information was found in October, 1974, at the public library of Crawfordsville, 1iLontgomery Coujty, Ind., in the genealogical - historical section of the library, on micro film..

(Note by .,V.P.) By combining the Portland, Indiana, newspaper account of her demise, which stated that she died in Montgomery county, and the remains were brought to Portland to be buried, the funeral services were held in her home at the farm and she was buried in Center cemetery, The above infor- mation from Crawfordsville did not identify the daughter at whose home Mrs Evilsizer died, but the latter part of Oct.of 1974 on my return to Idaho from a trip to the Last, I found the great granddaughter of Frances 4vilsizer,, «b»Mrs P«/b»earl Keith and she said her grandmother had lived in Crawfordsville, Ind., and had moved from there to Lenapah Okla.

[HI472] (Research):Troy Daily News May 23, 1968 "COTTON" EVILSIZOR SELLS BARBER SHOP AFTER 35 YEARS "Its a young people's world," C.P. (Cotton) Evilsizor explained yesterda y, as he sold his business to John Mason and retired. A barber in Troy f or 35 years, Evilsizor added, "I'll still be helping him out a little on T uesday, Wednesday and Saturday." Established in his present locati on at 16 N Market since 1933, Evilsizor has been barbering for 43 yea rs - in Lawrence Kansas and Huntington Park, Calif previously. He owned a nd operated a Barber College in Springfield before starting out in Troy. " It's been many years now," he reminisced. "I've seen many, and many of th em come and go." "My bootblack John Jones is near 70 now. He has been wi th me 25 years." And half the barbers in Troy came through this shop... I trained them y ou see, and then they left and started their own besiness, but I don't min d....People were made to help each other out, If they can't do that for o ne another, what is there?" Noting the dicersity of his work, the retiring barber said, " You've g ot to be able to do any kind...all sorts of hair cuts, face massage, every thing." Evilsizor has cut hair of such famous old timers as Jess Willar d, Glen Cunningham and John Levi, "may, many a time", he recalled. Planni ng to devore himself to his 145 acre farm at R.R.1 in Casstown, Evilsiz or added. "Some fellows, when they retire, you know, they've got nothi ng to do with themselves....Not me, I've got my farm....and probably I' ll be going back out to California for awhile....that's where my family is ." Grandfather of four, father of Mrs Wilma Hunter, and step father of Mrs Jo yce Lenehan, Evilsizor spoke of keeping the business in the family. "I wan ted my daughter to go to beautician's school.... I was going to divide t he shop, you know.... but she went to she's a schoolteacher ... and she's got her masters....once they want to, why, there's no stoppi ng them." Nodding towards his successor John Maxson of Sidney, Evilsizor added, "T he boy's young and his shoulders are strong, so let him take that - the re sponsibility. For me, I'm not going to worry about the future. I'm just go ing to take it as it comes."

[HI473] (Research):Springfield News-Sun, Monday, June 15, 1992 by Rod Lockwood

Bob Evilsizor enjoyed nearly every minute of his six and a half decades cutting hair in Clark County. Squirming kids fighting their first haircuts w riggled around in his chair and tested his patience. He watched custome rs grow old and pass away, only to be replaced by their sons and grandson s. Men shared confessions with him probably never told anyone else a nd he said he faithfully honored the unwritten code of the tonsorial profe ssion. "What you hear in the barber chair stays in the barber chair". F or 65 years he stood for countless hours cutting hair, chatting and listen ing. To hear Evilsizor talk, barbering is the best job in the world. "Barb ering was good to me all my life, every bit of it," Evilsizor said while r elaxing at Campbell's Barber Service, 1402 Maiden Lane. At 85 and sti ll in good health he figured it was time to step aside. He was experienci ng something that made his work rough and he couldn't take it anymore: Ma ny of his customers were getting old and dying. "Staying at it so long, pe ople are gone and it's pitiful and always hard on me." he said, shaking h is head sadly while talking to his partner for the last 10 years, Dick Cam pbell. "Damm it, Dick, when you live to be my age you lose almost everybod y." he said. "You become real friendly and all of a sudden they're gone a nd it's a hell of a thing." Campbell and Evilsizor have an easy rapport th at shows as they sit and talk, trading thoughts on the business. Campbel l, l8, obviously has a lot of respect for his former partner. He motion ed to his eyes to indicate tears when he talked about Evilsizor's last we ek on the job. "There was a lot of nostalgia." Campbell said. The two we re throwbacks to the days when haircuts were cheap (Campbell still charg es only $6) and simple, Campbell speaks with disdain of "hair stylists" a nd proudly said the only difference between a stylist and a barber is $1 0. Evilsizor tried to retire 10 years ago after being in business on his o wn, but it didn't suit him. "we shook hands and I said, "how do you like y our retirement," Campbell said. :He said, " I don't". I said, "Go get yo ur tools." Evilsizor originally went into the barbering business when he w as 20 and he realized that he didn't want to do it for a living. "I w as a farmer and it was hard work and I told my dad it wasn't for me. Wh en I was a kid I had decided I wanted to be a barber." he said. One of h is favorite aspects if the business was the people. He estimated that in h is prime he did 50 cent hair cuts a day. At the same time he served the sa le role as that of a good bartender; listener. "You listen, but you don 't want to argue. And religion is one thing you never want to talk about ." Evilsizor said. "People are interesting and in a barber chair they'll t ell you a lot more than anyplace else. They open up to a barber." Tr ue to the code, though, he won't relate any interesting stories he must ha ve heard while barbering. "When a customer told me something kind of secre t, I didn't tell anyone." he said. "That's one of the first things I learn ed." Probably the worst haircut you could get was a "youngster with the hi ccups" and in his prime kids posed a challenge both physically and mentall y, Evilsizor said. The good old days of barbering are long gone, he sai d, because it doesn't seem very many men are interested in nice, straig ht haircuts that personify what it means to be a clean cut. "So many peop le today aren't very particular about their hair." he said. "Years ago th ey would be very particular and everybody wanted to look neat." Campbell a greed. "You'll look in a church and see a man who has a nice suit, but h is hair will be long and he needed it cut two weeks ago. When we were you ng all men went to barbershops, but they don't do that anymore." he sai d. Evilsizor managed to pick up some hobbies over the years, including rep airing watches, wood working and painting barns. He also had a quirky hab it with cars: he bought a new one every two years. He has owned everythi ng from and Edsel to a Cadillac. "I don't know why I do that, I just need ed another car.", Evilsizor said, looking somewhat perplexed. "I never h ad a bad car. They were all good for two years. I know people used to wond er about me when I did that." He lives with his wife Mabel, and they ha ve two grown children. Evilsizor said part of his perpetually upbeat attit ude can be attributed to 65 years of getting up every day and going to a j ob that he truly loved. "I always said that I would never go to work unle ss it was something I enjoyed." he said. "We get people coming in here w ho just don't enjoy their work and I think that's awful."

From Jenn Merry 8/2012
I found a pensioner's card for a Jeremiah Bissett who was a member of Company F, 85th PA Regiment, killed Oct 21, 1864 in VA, and his widow's name was Rebecca. The dates fit, she married Joshua in 1869. Then in 1874 there was a minor's pension request from Jacob Dibert, "gdn" -- guardian?! So I am hoping to figure out who Jacob was and if he is associated with the Bissett kids, then I am right. The Bissett kids are living with Rebecca and Joshua in 1870 but are missing in 1880. Rebecca had my great grandmother Rosa in 1870, so it would make sense that she shipped her kids to someone else when she started having more.

[NI490] Bob and Flossie Hulsizer spent many years researching and then compiled a book on Lewis Evilsizor. Most of the information of his descendan ts was taken directly from their work. Most notes and comments are from B ob and Flossie, not myself. Again, I want to thank them for their contribu tions to this book.

April 26, 1902 Lewis Evilsizor of near Bowersville, Ohio, was taken seriously ill Wednesday and for a time it was thought that this would be his last illness. Mr E vilsizor has for many years been afflicted with a complication of diseas es contracted while in the war of the rebellion.

June 4, 1905 The condition of Lewis Evilsizor's hand is critical. Fears are entertained that amputation will be necessary.

The players were promptly ordered to hold up their hands, a nd the cowboys proceeded to "go through" the party, securing in the neighb orhood of $500. Some of the party were so frightened that they broke for t he woods, where they remained concealed until daylight. A well-known salo on keeper**, who was in the room, had $500 on his person. He dodged the He nry rifle and six-shooter, and escaped into the darkness, returning short ly with a shotgun, but the bold desperados had vamoosed. When the robbe rs left the town, they took with them a horse belonging to one of the citi zens."

In witness thereof the said party of the first part has hereunto set h is hand and seal the day and year first above written. Signed, sealed and delivered in the presence of William Head Alvin Evilsizer

Territory of Arizona, County of Cochise. On the 9th day of July 1883 personally appeared before one William He ad a Justice of the Peace in and for the County . Alvin Evilsizer kno wn to me to be the person described in and who executed the foregoing inst rument and who acknowledged to me that he executed the same freely and vol untarily and for the uses and purposes herein mentioned In witness where of I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my private seal (having no se al of office) the day and year in this certificate above written. William Head, Justice of the Peace Filed and recorded at request of E Lydow & Co, July 27, 1883 at 8 A.M. A T Jones, County Recorder.

Due to location and the fact he did not appear in the 1880 Census in IL L, ( on his way to Tombstone) I believe this might be the "Albert" Evilsi zer who married Josephine Farmer 12/10/1873 in Perry Co, IL. His brother O liver S also bought land in Perry Co, IL. Alvin did not make it to the 19 00 Census that I am aware.

A search of the 1880 California Census shows that Alvin went to live wi th his mothers brother, Greene B Mahill (Machill). He is living with him a nd his daughters. Green's wife has died by this time. We know that short ly afterward, in 1882 he is in Tombstone. His brother Lawson, whom he we nt to Tombstone with was also in California in 1880, but north in Colusa C ounty, Butte, CAPerry Co, IL is bordering Washington Co. IL, so this pers on is From the family of Joshua who settled there. Most descendants are ac counted for, but I suspect this is a child of Jefferson T. My reason bein g, he had several wives and several children and lived in two places maki ng it hard to figure out who belonged to him.

Found in 1910 Census, Toole Co, Sotckton, Utah, pg 91 Albert Evilsizer age 60 boarding in hotel, miner in a lead mine, single a ge 60 MO IN KY

I believe this is possibly the son of Jefferson T Evilsizer and Susan Mahi ll. Maybe his name was Albert Alvin and is why two names are used in the c ensus. Circumstancial evidence: 1 Born in MO, Jefferson born in IN and Susan Mahill born in KY matches t he 1910 Census info. 2 Was mining in New Mexico early and Tombstone AZ and in California, a nd is a miner also in a lead mine in 1910, keeping with the same professio n. 3 Brith date consistant with son Alvin

Burial: Tooele City Cemetery Tooele Tooele County Utah, USA Plot: 7-70-3

Death certificate says he was born in IL which is contrary to the census r ecords. Death record says he is son of Albert Evelsizer from Germany. There have been no census records of an Albert being the son of another Al bert from germany Death Certificate also spells name Evelsizer, also inconsistant with cens us There are no immigration records for an Albert Evelsizer to America. I suspect this death cerficate is not accurate from the informant in t he county infirmary. Census records in 1910 in Stockton Utah show him single and death cert sa ys he married, so he must have married after 1910

[HI509] (Research):Last spring I was reading a western novel, "Buckskin and Satin" about the events in and around tombstone , Arizona during the days of Wyatt Earp and crew, including the famous gunfight at O K Corral. There was in t he Chiricahua Mountains about 100 miles northeast of Tombstone, a little watering hole called Galeyville. Nearly inaccessible from the Tombstone side. It was a haven for outlaws and smugglers such as Johnny Ringo, Curly Bill and numerous others. The story mentioned a favorite saloon called "Evilsizer's Saloon". (This cannot be a fictional name). Through the publisher, I contacted the author who sent me some information on Galeyville and the contact for the venerable historian of Tombstone, Ben Traywick. Meanwhile, in another western novel, "Confessions of Johnny Ringo", I found another reference to the saloon in Galeyville, only this time the "s" was dropped from the last name. Ben Traywick indicated that "Evilsizer" was not listed in the Great Register of Cochise County for 1884 and gave me the address of the Arizona Historical Society. They sent me some copies of the December 2, 1881 Daily Nugget newspaper article of court proceedings with the named spelled "Evilsiger"

by Dennis Evelsizer in letter dated 5/2/00
The Daily Nugget, Tombstone, Arizona, December 2, 1881 "The following witnesses in criminal cases being unable to pay their expenses while in attendance upon court; the respective sums were allowed: L .. .....Evilsiger $31......

The Daily Nugget, Tombstone, Arizona, February 1, 1882 "Deputy Sheriff Breakenridge in his recent trip to Galeyville served bench warrants upon Ray Stahl, Loss Evilsizer, Fred Kohler and J Coggswell, who had previously been subpoenaed as witnesses, but failed to put in an appearance. They were brought to this city this time by the Deputy Sheriff."

GALEYVILLE is 4 miles south of the intersection of Hilltop. Coming from t he south, the turn off up to Galeyville is 1 mile north of Paradise. St op at the water tank and windmill. Although it has no buildings, it does have its share of history. Pennsylvanian John Galey opened the Texas Mine a nd Smelter in Galeyville in 1881, but the mining operation lasted only t wo years; the smelter was carted off to Benson, over ninety miles away. But the end of mining was only the beginning of the town. Galeyville became as refuge for outlaws like Curly Bill Brocius and Johnny Ringo. Both wo rked an effective cattle rustling operation in the canyons of the area. There isn't much in Galeyville now because many of the buildings were moved to nearby Paradise. A dilapidated wooden residence that stood just we st of the windmill and water tank was torn down sometime between October 1 978 and October 1979. The hole for the foundation marks the spot.

Great Register of the County of Cochise Territory of Arizona For the year 1882 Evilsizer, Lawson age 25 - US native- Miner- Russell City Evilsizer, Alvin age 32- US native- Miner-Russell City

RUSSELLVILLE Russellville was short lived because the establishment of Johnson sound ed its death knell. Here in 1882 a smelter was being erected and Geor ge J Roskruge laid out a town site. It was also called variously Russell, Russell Camp, and Russell City. An associated name is that of Russellville Peak, proposed in 1965 by Mrs Larry Devner. There may be a connecti on between the name and the fact that Capt George Briggs Russell in April 1871 battled Cochise and one hundred fifty Apaches near what later became Benson. Russell s' command consisted of about eighteen men. The Indians retreated from the open plains to the mountains and there entrenched. Russell sent for reinforcements.

Tombstone Epitaph, Thursday, April 29, 1926 Arizona Pioneer Writes Interesting History of Early Town of Galeyville "......It seems there had been some kind of misunderstanding between Bill and Wallace (Curly Bill and Jim Wallace), and as bill began to get und er the influence of liquor, he started in on Wallace; things soon beg an to look serious when their friends interfered and got them separated. Wallace then went over to the corral behind Babcock's Saloon and saddled h is horse and led him around in front of the saloon where he dropped his re ins and stepped up on the little porch in front of the door. Bill was " IN ANOTHER SALOON" *** on the opposite side of the street, and when he seen Wallace, he came out of the saloon and started towards him." (This article in its entirety is scanned on the CD-Rom Version.

The other Saloon referred to is apparently the Evilsizer Saloon

John Ringo By David D. Johnson pg324
While he was referred to as Evilsinger in the Tombstone Epitaph, Historian Roy B Young was able to determine that his correct name was Lawson Evilsizer born around 1856 in Lincoln Co, MO.

[NI536] Joshua was the oldest child of Sinclair and Perlina Walters Evilsizer. When he was several years old his parents, along with his maternal grandparents, Levi and Mariah (Martin) Walters moved to Montevallo, Missouri in Bates County. (Today Montevallo is located in Vernon County) Joshua's father set out the first orchard in the small village of Montevallo, then just a trading post. Around 1847 the family moved northeast of Richmond in Ray County Missouri where Joshua resided with them until the outbreak of the Civil War.

Sentiments for pro or anti slavery had a long history in the state, and was to be the spark that set fires between brothers during the Civil War. Loyalty ran deep from southern supporters and produced many guerrilla forces true to Dixie. Throughout 1861 through much of 1863, local government broke down over much of Missouri, with local civil wars and guerrilla raids and much destruction of public and private property. During this time in August 1861, Joshua along with his mother headed for Chillicot he to enlist with the Union forces. On the way a band of guerrillas stopped them wanting to know where they were going. Joshua told them he was taking his mother to the doctor. After extensive questioning, they were relieved when the men finally permitted them to continue on their way.

Joshua was 21 years old when he enrolled the 10th day of August 1861. He s erved as a Private, Company E with the Second Regiment Missouri Cavalry, w ell known as Merrill's Horse. He was mustered into service on September 3rd at Benton Barracks near St. Louis where he was furnished a uniform, horse and gear. He served for only a short time when he became disabled and was sent to the post hospital in Sedalia, Missouri and on to St. Louis to the convalescent hospital. He was discharged May 1, 1862.

After his discharge, Joshua traveled a short distance to Nashville, Illino is where his two uncles and an aunt and their families lived (Zach Evilsizer , Levy Evilsizer, and Elizabeth Evilsizer McElhanon) and where he stayed until his marriage to Mary McBride in 1862. At that time Mary was working in Nashville as a domestic and lived with the Jacob Stoker family. Her parents had died between 1856-1860.

In 1870 they traveled to Kansas where they homesteaded. LaVonne Schulze remembers: "When I was a little girl, I would beg my grandmother, Mary McBride Evilsizer, to tell me about the early days in Kansas. She said they lived in a log house. She had to walk a great distance for water, and the grass on both sides of the path was so tall it was over her head. When Joshua went for supplies, he would be gone for one week and it was a horrible time for her. One time when he was gone, Indians came to the door and there she stood with her babies huddled around her. They did not say anythi ng, just looked at her. She searched around for food, which she gave to them and finally they went away. Mary hated their stay in Kansas."

I don't think Joshua felt the same about the ruggedness and the isolation of Kansas as Myron Gaffin Reynolds related to Marion Kelliher in 196 1: "Our grandmother, Mary Evilsizer Burress (Joshua's sister) wrote in her diary how the boys would write home such glowing letters about Kansas ." Perhaps "the boys" had that pioneer spirit, but the harshness of everyday life and isolation was too much for Mary to bear and, indeed, life was extremely hard on the prairie housewife.

In a country so short of firewood, the prairie stoves were designed so th ey could burn hay, dried corncobs and sunflower stalks, but the most comm on fuel were cow ships. The chips burned so quickly that they were tossed in by the handful. A Kansas boy who watched his mother baking describ ed the whole procedure as follows: "Stoke the stove, get out the flour sack, stoke the stove, wash your hands, mix the biscuit dough, stoke the stove, wash your hands, mix the biscuit dough, stoke the stove, wash your hand s, cut out the biscuits, stoke the stove, wash your hands, put the pan of biscuits in the oven, keep on stoking the stove until the biscuits are done." The final step of course, was to wash her hands and serve
dinner, even if she herself were too tuckered out to eat. Besides cooking, washing, and cleaning house, women on the prairies were expected to help the men with the plowing, to tote the water and fuel, and tend the vegetable ga rden. And in a land with few doctors who were miles away, it was up to them to keep the family healthy. They devised all kinds of remedies from t he materials at hand; coal oil for dandruff, warm manure for snakebite, warm urine poured into the ear for earache (also said to be good for freckles and sunburn), sassafras tea to cure spring fever, a roasted mouse (we ll done) ingested to cure measles, nine pellets from a shotgun shell swallowed for boils, buttercup tea for asthma, a bean thrown into a well over the left shoulder for warts and a potato carried in the pocket for rheu matism.

And, of course, they had to contend with the weather - summer draughts, when the thermometer rose well about 100 degrees and hovered there for weeks on end. Winter, with its fierce blizzards and arctic temperatures brought still another set of woes. Wind-driven snowflakes seeped through the cracks of the tightest log cabin or sod house.

It is not surprising that after two years of this hardship, Mary found Kansas life too hard to endure and refused to stay, and so, they packed up and moved back to Missouri.

By 1873 when Joshua was 34 years old, he and his family were living in the frontier town of Lamar in Barton County, which was first settled in 185 6. Wyatt Earp began his career in law enforcement on the boardwalks of Lamar after serving with the Union Army and upon his return became the Justice of the Peace. McCook Post, Grand Army of the Republic was mustered Sept ember 30, 1882 at Lamar, which Joshua was a charter member. Joshua was we ll known among the old soldiers in the Barton and Bates County area being an active member of the GAR.

Around 1886 he and his family moved to Butler and lived on West Ohio Stree t. Joshua owned the dairy in Butler and to quote LaVonne Schulze: "He never did any of the menial work. He dressed up at all times, and was a very proud, haughty man. He hung his hat on a special hook; his cane on another and no one ever touched it. He had a place for everything and everything had to be in place. Woe be to anyone who dared upset things."

Joshua continued to be active in the GAR and also in the Republican political affairs of the area. He and Mary lived in Butler the rest of Joshua 's life, a little over twenty years. The old soldier died on a Thursday evening at 9:30 on January 10, 1907 at the age of 67 after being ill several years. His obituary states: "He was a man well respected and esteemed by his neighbors and friends, and was well known by the older settlers of the county."

Mary continued to live in Butler and lived many years with her daughter, J ennie Foster and later in Emporia, Kansas. Another story from LaVonne Shulze: "Mary's parents died when she was very young and she was raised by ano ther family who treated her badly and would not permit her to go to school. I was fortunate to grow up in the same town with my great grandmother. She and my great Aunt Ella lived with my grandmother, Jennie Evilsizer Foster. It was a proud, closely-knit and intensely loyal family. Much of the strength of the family probably came from Mary. Her children all adored and respected her. They all came regularly to visit her bringi ng their children, then their grandchildren and finally, their great grand children. My father felt the same way about Joshua when he was alive. There was a closeness, which I have never experienced with the other branches of my family. When tragedy struck one member of the family, it struck all. There was also an intense family pride. My mother said it was a hard f amily to become a part of. She felt as if she was on trial all the time - and she was."

Another story about Mary that was told to her grandson, Clarence Evilsize r: "Mary was a small woman, quite attractive with very aristocratic features. She would occasionally stop by her son's home, Tom Evilsizer, and have tea with Clarence's mother, Lizzie. On one such occasion when she was very elderly, she finished her visit and prepared to leave. Someone offered a helping hand and she turned abruptly and snapped, "I can do it myself ." I think this short simple story probably exemplifies the make-up and personality of Mary McBride Evilsizer.

Joshua and Mary had a total of 10 children with only six living to raise families: Ella, Jennie, Thomas, Alta, Ida, and Myrtie.

Walters family info from Mikki McBride

Perlinas children died of typhoid quite interesting as two of her brothers died in the 1850s rather suddenly, Martin and Liberty, and could not find a cause. Levis land was right on the river and might have been an unhealthy place to live. Levi supposedly died of cholera while away from home a nd his body placed in an common grave with other victims of the disease, a wagon coming around at night ringing a bell, to pick up bodies . This was from the Amery brothers via Mr Morris. Also Mr Morris commented that Robert and William, Levi and Mariah youngest children were red headed, quite tall and good looking. Source, Lura Glass

our common ancestor is Levi, that cagey old codger. Did I ever tell you that his daughter and husband left Missouri on an early wagon train over the Oreton Trail. He became a famous trader with the Indians - too famous because he was highjacked and murdered on night in the Dalles, as he returned from a trading trip. Before his untimely death he had filed a claim for land on the Washing ton side of the river, and when I retired and came here for the first time in my life, I unknowing built a home on that very same property.

Our correspondant at Millville writes us that Jefferson Evilsizer was assasinated ar his home 8 miles north of that place about 9 or 10 o'clock on Monday night and died from the effects of a gunshot wound received about 2:00 on Tuesday afternoon. The facts revealed are about as follows: At the time named on Monday night after Evilsizer had gone to bed, someone knocked at the door of his home. He got up and opened the door, when the assassin, who was not more than three feet from him fired, the ball striking Evilsizer near the pit of the stomach causing his death as stated above. Before his death however he gave the name of the assassin, a young man who lived in the neighborhood named William Miller. Evilsizer was a man highly respected and the dastardly act that caused his taking off has caused great excitement. His funeral took place yesterday afternoon from the residence of Mr S Evilsizer. Wm Miller was put under arrest today charged with the assassination

A Witness Out of The Way
A Nephew Shoots An Uncle To Prevent His Appearance Against His Father
St Louis, Mo., Nov 23, 1883
William Miller, a young man about twenty-two years old, is in jail at Richmond, charged with the murder of his uncle, Jeff Evilsizer. The crime was committed last Monday night in what is known as the Mud Creek Settlement, or Millerville, a locality remote from telgraph or railroad. On that night about nine o'clock after Jeff Evilsizer and family had retired, somebody outside the house called. The old man answered without opening the door, asking "Who is there?". The reply came "John Evilsizer" (Jeff's brother). The old man then opened the door and peered out into the darkness, but could see no one. He stood there nearly a minute, when suddenly there was a flash, a report, and the old man staggered back into the room and fell on the bed. A bullet had penetrated his abdomen, inflicting a wound that proved fatal twenty-four hours later. Before he died he stated he saw, by the flash of the pistol, that the shot was fired by Willie Miller. This news did not reach Richmond until Thursday morning, and when, about noon on that day, young Miller rode into Richmond on horseback he was arrested. He denied all knowledge of the killing.Thomas Miller, the father of the young man, has also been arrested. The Evilsizers and the Millers, though realted, have been on bad terms for some time. There is a charge of horse stealing against old man Miller, and the case was to be heard this week at Richmond, with Jeff Evilsizer as the principal witness. The Millers have made repeated efforts to beg or buy off Evilsizer from testifying, and it is now thought the killing was done to get a dangerous witness out of the way. The two families are very wealthy, both owning large and well stocked farms, besides other property.

A Wife's Thrilling Story
The Murder of Jeff Evilsizer Described-Lynching of Miller Probable
St Louis, Mo., Nov 24, 1883
William Miller, the nephew of the murdered man Evilsizer, of Richmond, Clay County, stands a pretty fair chance of being hanged, either by due process of law or otherwise, as the first sign of anything like quibbling, legal dodging or delay of any kind, will prove the signal for action on the part of people who claim to be prompted by a higher law than that enacted by the Legislature and administered by the courts. That this is recognized to be the case is evidenced by the fact that the Prosecuting Attorney has sent a number of messengers out into the Mud Creek District, where the murder was committed, to assure the people in a semi-official manner that the law will be promptly administered in this case.
Mrs. Evilsizer, wife of the murdered man, tells the following story of her terrible experience on the night of the killing.
"We had spent what seems to me now one of our most pleasant evenings, and been in bed about half an hour when some one hollered out in front of the house. I asked who was there. "John Evilsizer" was the reply. "What do you want, you good for nothing thing, this time of night", I inquired. Then I asked Jeff to get up and let the boy in. My husband went to the door and opened it. I heard the person on the outside step upon the stone steps for his boots scraped on them. "He's dressed up" I said to myself: "Somebody must be sick. The next moment the pistol flashed and my husband staggered back on the bed. He begged me to light the lamp and I did, so after waiting a few minutes for fear they would break into the house. The light soon went out, for we were out of oil. My husband raised his shirt and I saw he was shot in the right side. I said, "Who could have done this thing." He answered, "Willie Miller." All night he lay there writhing, shrieking, and calling for water, which I gave him. Oh, how I prayed for him not to die!
"Three times I heard some one come around in their stocking feet and listen. I knew they were outside, and I expected they wound come in and shouted for help, but nobody came. The nearest neighbor was a half mile away, and nobody passed along the road."
The Grand Jury has the case in hand and has examined a large number of witnesses. The proceedings are supposed to be secret, but the evidence leaks out almost as fast as the witnesses make their statements. It is claimed that enough evidence has been given to show plans for the killing of two other men, who are witnesses against Thomas Miller, the father of the alleged murderer, who is charged with horse stealing. The excitement and interest in this case are due to the fact that all the parties are very wealthy and prominent people.
The Grand Jury at Richmond this evening found an indictment charging young Miller with murder. His is in jail, and the utmost precautions are taken to prevent lynching, and the jail is strongly guarded.

St Louis Globe-Democrat Nov 26, 1883 Issue 189 Col G
Evilsizer's Assassin
The Jail at Richmond Strongly Guarded, to Prevent the Lynching of Miller
Richmond, MO., Nov 25- All of last night lights glimmered from the windows of the residence portion of the County Jail, and occasionally a shadow was thrown across the curtains, showing the occupants of the room to be more or less restless, as if expecting something, their gestures being discerned from without. The occupants of the rooms were determined men, bent on resisting a mob. The jailer's familty had been removed to a neighbor's house. The same condition of affairs exists tonight. At about 1 o'clock, or soon after midnigth, the prisoners of the jail, who are five in number, were aroused by persons peeping into the windows, both front and rear, and called to Col. Warrenstaff, the jailer, when the men disappeared. Col. Warrenstaff found the prisoners greatly excited, except Miller, who was removed to the dungeon in the second story of the jail when the alarm was given. Mr Warrenstaff reassured them, saying that he would surrender his life in their protection, and as no further noise was heard, the fears of the majority of the prisoners were quieted. This was not the case with Miller, however. When the others felt alarmed he was not frightened, but when their fears were allayed, he became very nervous, praying the Sheriff not to let a mob kill him. He said the deathlike stillness boded him no good. He will be kept in the dungeon hereafter. This cell is quite strong, and is just at the head of a narrow flight of steps leading from the street door to the second story. The cell he formerly occupied is a very weak one, and an able-bodied man if permitted to work uninterrupted would be able to break into it in a couple of hours alone. Canterbury, one of the prisoners who is to be tried on a charge of rape, and who has already served seven years in the Ohio Penitentiary for robbery, says of the men peeping into the cell windows: He saw that one of them wore a cap, and that when they saw they had been discovered they crowded close to the walls of the building to keep from being seen.Today thestillness was ominous, and tonight in little knots of four and five on the different corners and at the hotels and restaurants, the situation is being discussed. One gentleman who knows whereof he speaks, if any one can know in a case like this, says no violence will be done, yet that trouble is even now anticipated is evidenced from the fact that one of the Constables of this township says he will surrender his office before he will help guard the jail. "I don't want to be killed," he said, "particularly by old army comrades, and if the men from the neighborhood of the murder come after Miller they won't leave the jail without him." The trial of the elder Miller for grand Larceny come up tomorrow. This is the case from which the murder of Evilsizer, it is supposed, was the outgrowth; and while tonight may pass quietly, a strong guard will be kept up, and should Miller be convicted, it is argued that it will tend to further incite the feeling against his son.

Lexington Weekly, Lexington MO Dec 8, 1883
Gentlemen from Richmond in conversation regarding the Evilsizer murder, state that the trip of the younger Miller to Waverly on the day following the murder was for the evident purpose of killing Docotr Beers, who lives near that place, who, with Mr Evilsizer, was a leading witness in the case against Miller's father for horse stealing. That such was the prupose of Miller's errand is pretty generally believed in Richmond, and also by a number of gentlemen living at Waverly, who or more or less conversant with the circumstances. Mr Evilsizer was an uncle of the murderer. The killing was done Monday; Tuesay at daylight Miller left for Waverly, leaving there for Richmond on Wednesday, and the next day he was indicted for murder in the first degree and locked up in jail, at Richmond.

Criminal Calendar
Circumstances Connected with the Murder of Jeff Evilsizer
Arrest of Ex-United States Marshall Hall-Man, Woman and Pistol Missing-Safely Incarcerated
Richmond, MO June 9- A notable murder case was called up today in the Ray County Circuit Court. Pubic opinion is stong against William Miller, who is accused of killing his uncle, Jeff Evilsizer, and at one time there was a good deal of apprehension about an attack on the jail.Bad roads, as mush as anything, exercised a restraining influence on the excited farmers of the vicinity of the assasination, and they did not carry out their threats.
Evilsizer was called to his door in the middle of the nigth of November 19. When he asked who was there a voice replied, "Johnnie Miller." As soon as the door was opened the farmer was shot through the stomach. He lingered in great agaony, his wife being deterred from giving any alarm by the noises kept up outside, supposedly by the assassins. The man was reticent at first about naming his murderer, but finding that he must die, he told his wife and others that Willie Miller had killed him, adding "I recognized him by his big white hat." It was two days after the commission of the deed before much was known of it in Richmond, the county seat. On Monday night the foul deed was done, and on Wednesday evening young Miller rode into Richmond and stopped at the Wasson House. To a question put by the correspendent of the Globe-Democrat, he said: "I left home last Tuesday morning at daylight and have just got back from Waverly. I don't know of any news except there was a fire down our way." He knew nothing of the murder, he said, and proceeded to tell in detail where he had been. From his home he had ridden to the Lexington ferry, twenty-five miles, had crossed the Missouri, and had gone on to Waverly, twenty-three miles further.
For the motive of the crime it is necessary to go back to a horse trade which took place in Lexington on the 10th of April 1880. These feuds in farming communities smolder for years without dying out, and when the basis of the trouble is horseflesh, they seem to take on their most deadly character. On the day mentioned, Dr F.D. Beers, of Waverly, was at a livery stable in Lexington, where he met a man who traded to him a brown mare for a roan horse.The man represented himself to the Doctor as a renter living at Hardin, in Ray County, and stated that he wished to trade the mare to wean its colt, which had been left at home. This was on a Saturday, and less than a week later the Doctor left Lexington to pay a visit to a patient near Richmond. He visited a farmer, named Frazier, to whom he traded the mare he had got from the stranger at Lexington. The animal had been in Frazier's possession about three months when Evilsizer saw it. He claimed it was his, saying it had been stolen from him. Proving the mare to be his, Frazier turned the animal over to Evilsizer. Some six or eight days afterward Dr Beers paid another visit to Mr. Frazier. When the later told him of the mare being taken from him by Evilsizer, the Doctor then visited Hardin, Richmond and other points, searching for the man with whom he had originally traded. At Hardin he learned that the representations made to him at Lexington were false, nothing being known of the man there, though he had claimed that place as his home. In September following Dr. Beers was at a Mr. Oester's to whom he told the circumstances already detailed, adding a description of the man. Oester readily recognized him from this description, and the next day he and the Doctor rode to Thomas Miller's house. Miller was at work in a field, and when they had got in speaking distance the Doctor asked Miller if he knew him. Miller said he did; that he had been wanting to see him ever since Frazier had been obliged to surrender the mare. He invited the visitors to dismount, and when near the house asked Dr Beers how the affair could be fixed up. On the terms that Miller would not be prosecuted if he paid for the trouble and what had been lost, a settlement was affected with Dr. Beers and the matter was dropped. The Grand Jury, however, took up the case, and Miller was indicted for stealing the mare. Just before this case was to come before the court, (Dr Beers stated to your correspondent), Miller left $50 with F. R. Gautier, a lively man be given him if he would not testify against him. Mr Gautier gave the money to a daughter of Dr Beers, but when she tendered it to her father, telling him how she came by it, he refused it, and it was returned to Gautier. This case was to be tried last November, and of course Beers and Evilsizer would have been the principal witnesses.
Jeff Evilsizer was Miller's brother-in-law, Miller says. Jeff gave him the mare for debt, and that afterward, as Mrs Evilsizer claimed the animal, Jeff swore that he had not done so. The mare was taken from the stable at night, and Miller alleges that Jeff was privy to the taking and selling of the mare, but afterward changed his position from fear of his wife and replevined it. Mrs Evilsizer, on the other hand, states that the feeling of the Millers toward her husband was very bitter, and that threats had been made against him in regard to this case; that instead of her husband owing the elder Miller they held a note against the younger one, on which there was a balance yet unpaid. This is the horse case. The theory on which the murder is accounted for is that young Miller had undertaken to put both Evilsizer and Beers out of the way before his father's trial. Evilsizer was killed, and within a few hours of that event young Miller was on his way to Waverly. At that place he saw Gautier, and manifested considerable anxiety to find Beers. He was asked by Gautier is his name was not Miller, and he denied his identity, but finally acknowledged his name.
When he learned that Dr Beeers had left Waverly for Richmond, to testify in the larceny case, he got his horse and rapidly rode out of town, taking the road to Lexington. Seven miles or so from Waverly he overtook the Doctor, who was traveling in a buggy, but was not alone- a Mr Pickett, who, only last Fenruary, was threateningly warned to be quiet by the Millers, accompanying him. Miller rode on. When he reached Lexington, he stopped a short time, and at 3 o'clock that afternoon he started for Richmond, nine miles away, which he did not reach until nearly 9 o'clock that night. It did not take him so long to travel the distance between the two points, and it is part of the theory that as he went to Waverly to "finish" Dr. Beers, and was unsuccessful, he hid in the brush between the junction and the river, thinking the doctor would continue his journey through to Richmond in the buggy in which he left Waverly. Here again young Miller was foiled, the buggy being left a Lexington, and the doctor taking the train for Richmond the next morning. Miller is an honest looking country boym and when arrested at Richmond after he had been in town all night and about the Court House during the morning, he manifested no uneasiness and did nothing to betray himself. The only time uneasiness was shown by him was when active preparations were made to defend the old stone fortress called a jail against an expected lynching party.

William Mller was the son of Thomas and Malinda Miller found in the 1880 Census of Ray Co, MO. Thomas was a brother to Elizabeth, wife of Jeff Evilsizer. They are found in the 1880 census: Ray Co, Grape Grove, MO HH125

William Killer on Trial for the Murder od Evilsizer
Richmond Mo June 14- The Miller murder case is fairly under way and the courtroom packed. Mrs Evilsizser testified that her husband repeatedly sai he recognized his nephew William Miller, is the man who shot him. The evidence so far is very damning to Miller. The defense objects to the introduction of declarations made by Evilsizer, and if the verdict should go against him the will no doubt take the case up. There are seventy witnesses to be examined, which will carry the case over to the last of next week.

[XI547] He is buried in a small cemetery in a on private property in a field. The Cemetery name is Millville. It is not visible from the highway. Several years ago my cousin and I went there. We unearthed several headstones and took pictures of them. Unfortunately this person headstone was not found. At one time cows were roaming there. All but five or six are knocked down,broken or unreadable, in fact a tree grows through one of them. It is cracked in many places some unreadable. If this Evilsizer is related I would be happy to send you a picture of this cemetery. Sharon Hunt 9/2011

[HI548] (Research):From the Richmond, Mo Conservator - Thursday July 23, 1891 A Mysterious Death A postal card from Judge W D Fortune at Tinney's Grove informs us that the dead body of Elizabeth Evilsizer, widow of the late Jeff Evilsizer who was murdered some years since, was found at her residence on Sunday. Remains were in an advanced state of decomposition showing the death had occrred some time ago. No particulars were obtainable and nothing could be l earned to throw light upon the matter. Was it a murder or had death come from natural causes which are not yet answered. The deceased lived on Mud Creek.

The CHIEF, Cowgill, MO July 24, 1891 FOUND DEAD
The Remains of Mrs Eliza Evilsizer Found In Her Own House Sunday Morning Last
Our readers will no doubt remeber how Jeff Evilsizer who lived in the edge of Ray County, 6 miles southeast of town, was called to his door and shot down by a midnight assassin, some 7 years ago. Ever since his death, which occured on the day following his widow, Aunt Eliza, has lived alone on her farm, and except for an occasional visit from a neighbor, was sole occupant of the premises. During the latter part of the week, however, passers-by saw no one going about the house which was shut up closely. On Sunday morning, George Rogers, Billy Malone, Isaac Hatfield and others went to the house to investigate and on entering the west room were horrified to find the decaying corpse of Mrs E, who had evidently been dead several days. The body lay supine on the floor, the knees being drawn up, one arm extended and the other across the breast. The face was black and swollen, beyond recognition, and the odor arising from the remains , together with their putrid condition made it impossible to detect any signs of violence, if such existed. The outer doors were closed but not locked, and the windows of the room where the dead woman lay were darkened by papers pinned up on the inside, the outer blinds also being closed. Nothing about the house seemed disturbed, $10 in money being found upstairs, besides several thousand dollars worth of notes and mortgages. As the coroner of Ray County could not attend to the inquest, and both the Justices of the township were absent, "Squire W W Whompson of Cowgill, impaneled a jury of Ray County citizens and proceeded with the case. Dr G B Cowley examined the body, the testimony of five or six witnesses was taken, after which the jury, composed of W W Griffling, J S Stephenson, W J Cullumber, W H Gilbow, C M Coffman and H N Graham, brought in a verdict of death in a way and manner unknown to the jury". The remains were buried near the Union Church late Sunday evening. The testimony given at the inquest developed merely the facts that deceased was last seen alive on Wednesday, July 15 and that she had at times complained of heart trouble. One witness deposed that he had frequently been in the room where the body was found, but that the windows never had been darkened by papewrs before. The evidence together with the position of the body and the fact that a quilt thrown over a barrel and a chair-back effectually concealed the remains from view of anyone looking in at the front window, led many to suspect foul play. They are not, however, incompatible with the theory of a sudden death from heart failure or apoplexy, and we are loth to believe any human being so debased as to take the life of this old and helpless lady. The mystery of her death, however, remains unbroken and may never be solved until that great day when the dead shall rise again. Peace to her ashes.

From the Richmond, Mo Conservator - Thursday August 31, 1891 A Grave Charge Mrs. Elizabeth Graham arrested for the murder of Mrs. Evilsizer. On Sunday, July 10, the dead body of Mrs. Eliz Evilsizer, a widow who liv ed alone on her farm about five miles west of Tinney's Grove, was found in her home in a badly decomposed condition. Her throat was cut from ear to ear, and the body was in such a bad condition that it had to be rolled in a quilt and placed in the coffin, without being washed. That she had been murdered there could be no doubt, but the author of the awful crime was unknown. The nephew of the dead woman, S H Miller was in Oklaho ma at the time of her death, and was subsequently notified. He arriv ed in this County a few days after her burial and at once began a search for the assassin of his kinswoman. Last Saturday, he swore out a warrant against Mrs. Sarah Graham, a neighbor of Mrs. Evilsizer, charging her with the crime of murder in the first degree. Sheriff Perdue went up last Saturd ay and served the warrant and brought the prisoner to this city. On Sunday he took her to Carrollton and lodged her in jail. We do not know what the evidence is against Mrs. Graham, but have heard in a circumstantial w ay that it is very strong. On Wednesday evening before the body of Mrs. Evilsizer was found, Mrs. Graham was seen going toward the Evilsizer farm, a nd late the same night she was overtaken by a farmer on a wagon and taken to Braymer, where she spent the night at a hotel. Her clothes were wet and bedraggled as though she had been trying to wash them or had walked through the grass and weeds. When Mrs. Evilsizer's house was searched after the finding of her body, the table was found set with three plates as though she was expecting company. In the kitchen, the coffee pot and other cooking vessels were found on the stove and thirteen slices of meat were laying on the table and other things went to show she was preparing a meal other than for herself. It is said that the two women were not on the best of terms, and that the trouble between them dates back to the time when they were neighbors in Pennsylvania. Mrs. Graham has retained as her attorney, Mssrs Garner and Scott and J W Shotwell

The Chief- Cowgill, MO- July 24, 1891 During the later part of last week, passers by saw no one going about the house, which was shut up closely. On Sunday morning, George Rogers, Bil ly Malone, Isaac Hatfield and others went to the house to investigate and upon entering the west room were horrified to find the decaying corpse of Mrs. E who had evidently been dead several days. The body lay on the floor, knees being drawn up, one arm extended and the other across the breast. The face was black and swollen beyond recognition, and the odor arising from the remains, together with their putrid condition made it impossible to detect any violence. The outer doors were closed and not locked and the windows of the room were darkened by papers pinned up on the inside and the outer blinds being closed. Nothing about the h ouse seemed disturbed, $10 in money being found upstairs besides several thousand dollars worth of notes and mortgages.

Exhibit 1 Richmond, Mo, June 5, 1889 My dearest niece- Your long looked for letter came to hand, how I looked for it, waiting particularly till Xmas; if she is alive she always sends me a present and I went to all three P O and finally got your letter after three months and three days, hence I have fretted about you least you were in need or driven to degradation and I am able to give you as good a home as Fred without any worry to you. I hope you are still in your place. I was very glad to get your letter and to hear you are well and happy; I am very loneso me and sometimes troubled of marrying again as none of my kin will come to me. I have had 21 offers since I was left a widow. I do not like to marry again but scarcely know what to do. I wish I was near you at house-cleaning that I could get some new carpets; how often I wish if I were there, how many things I would try to get to furnish my spare room. I have to keep my wheat in it. So far we had 605 bushels off thirty five acres, have not got all the place under cultivation but will by the coming summer try to get it as it would help me so much. I got 202 bushels, sold so me at 75 cents a bushel; If I had any one living with me I would run the farm myself and make by it. The gentleman that has your money has sold out, will pay it in Spring but there is another stockman that wants it, think of letting him have it. It will be $726.00 by that time. Have not been well for a long time with Kidney and liver trouble; got 1 bottle of Warner's Kidney and Liver Safe Cure that helped me; will try to get another soon; my place is in wheat this year and I hope it will be a good crop year. This is a lonely day here, have no fire so warm out. Now dear Maggie may God Bless you and preserve you and keep you in a state of grace is the sincere prayer of your affectionate aunt. Give my love to Mrs C rennett and family; please write soon and direct Mrs T J Evilsizer, Cowgill, MO

Now I believe that my aunt, Mrs Evilsize, had promised to give to my cousin, Mrs Alexander, at some time, the mon ey now claimed by Mrs Alexander, to procure her silence about this transaction, and to leave the land in the possession of My Aunt, Mrs Evilsizer. The party mentioned as "Uncle James" on third page of the letter , marked " Exhibit B" is my uncle, also Mrs Alexander's uncle and brother of the deceased Mr Evilsizer. The party spoken of as "Elizabeth", on fourth page, is my mother. I have closely examined this letter and know it to be in the hand writing of my cousin, Mrs Alexander. I also examined at the same time and place, letter dated Sept 30th, 1888 ad addressed "my dear aunt", and described as "Exhibit C" and kn ow it to be in the hand writing of my cousin, Mrs Alexander. I also examined at the time and place the letter dated and described as "E xhibit D" and made a part thereof, April 24th, 1890 and addressed "Dear Aunt" and know it to be in the hand writing of my cousin, Mrs Alexander.

This was after Mrs Alexander had come on to Missouri, and shortly after my Aunt's death; and was in answer to the question asked by me, how she sent this money;- that being the first that I knew of her claim against the estate; and thinking that, if she really had sent the money, it would be easy for her to show by the records, how it was sent. This was after she had examined, or caused to be examined, the effects of my aunt's estate. S H Miller Subscribed and sworn to before me on this 24th day of April 18, 1893

Territory of Oklahoma, Oklahoma County Deposition of witnesses produced, sworn and examined on the 28th day of Feb in the year of our Lord Eighteen Hundred Ninety Three, between the hours of eight o'clock in the forenoon and six o'clock in the afternoon of that day, at the office of the Probate Judge in the court house building in the City of Oklahoma and territory of Oklahoma, before me, S A Stewa rd, Probate Judge in and for said county and territory. I a certain case now pending in the probate court of the County of Ray, in the state of Missouri between Margaret J Alexander, Plaintiff and M D L Blevins, Administrator of the estate of Elizabeth Evilsizer, deceased, on the part of the defendant. S H Miller of lawful age, being produced, sworn and examined on the part of the defendant, deposeth and sayeth as follows to wit: In 1883 I had charge of my Aunt's Mrs Evilsizer, notes and mortgages, amounting as near as I can remember in all to about Fifteen Hundred Dollars ($ 1500.00); I had then in my possession in 1884 and 1885 with the excepti on of a short time that they were in her possession. At that time she had other personal property which would amount in my judgement, to three ( 3) or four (4) hundred dollars. While those notes were in my possession the money was kept continuously at interest or as soon as a note was paid, the money was immediately loaned at ten percent, that being the amount that all the notes bore interest. I will further state, that from my knowledge of my aunt's ways, that she was very economical and saving, and that she continually, to the best of my knowledge, kept this money loaned at the current rate of interest. She also received rents from eighty acres of land which would amount to from one hundred and fifty dollars per year. She had other monies on deposit in some eastern banks, but I do not know wether she had received it all prior to that time, or not. I will further state, that she was very saving in her nature, and spent no money only for the absolute necessaries of life, and in a great many cases she did not, even procure what I would consider the absolute necessities. I will further state, that in all my connections with her business, it was never intimated to me, that she received any money from Mrs Margaret J Alexander during that time, or at any other time. I believe that the money that Mr George had was a number of different notes which he took up and assumed the responsibility, among the notes being one on Joe Goe. I am not positive about the other notes Mr George took up besides the Goe note, that money was loaned to Mr George during the short time that I did not have possession of the notes. I will further state, that Mrs Alexander told me in the last of August or the first of September, 1891, that she sent my Aunt, Mrs Evilsizer, Four Hundred Dollars ($400.00) wrapped up in a package of clothing through the mails and it was not registered .. I will further state that I examined in Feb 1892, the letters writt en by Mrs Alexander to my Aunt Mrs Evilsizer, and now in the hands of Mr Blevins, the administrator of said estate; and did not see any mention ma de in any of the letters (and I examined them very closely) covering the period of 84 and 1888 both inclusive, of any money having been sent by Mrs Alexander to Mrs Evilsizer. I will further state that during the time I had possession of these notes and monies I was living within from one to two miles of my aunt, Mrs Evilsizer, all of the time; and was back and forward at her house frequently; this was in Ray County, Missouri; I am now living in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma Territory.

[NI559] John Harrison Evilsizer homesteaded in Colorado; died there when train hit his car; he had been a County Commissioner of Kiowa County, Colorado. His son, Roy Harrison Evilsizer also had ranch in Colorado for about 7 years.

John Harrison Evilsizer, my grandfather, ran a livery stable in Severy, Kansas, where my father Roy Harrison Evilsizer was born. John was some sort of hired official who helped in the opening of the Oklahoma territory ( according to family tales). Later, he and his youngest son Victor went to Colorado to operate a ranch there. My father and mother joined them around 1912, taking over a homestead which had been given up by some of her family. John had a second marriage late in life and a son, Hoy Evilsizer, a half brother to my father. When prices dropped at the end of WWI my father lost his ranch and the family moved to Sedalia, Missouri. John's son Hoy was a baby when they moved. I have the impression that my father did not like his stepmother, and the families lost touch entirely. I found out about Hoy when I began working on the family tree in the 1960's, and I had the privilege of meeting Hoy and his wife in the early 1990's at their home in Hugo, Colorado. (by Granddaughter Marion)

From Myron Gaffin Reynolds, Sinclair's great granddaughter. "John Evilsizer was a great favorite of my mother Lucy, her brother Albert Burress, and their cousin Cora Evilsizer. The three were about the same age and were orphaned grandchildren being raised in Sinclair and Perlina's home. They were about ten years younger than John.

"About 1900 John moved his family to Kansas City, Missouri, where he operated a flourishing livery business on Campbell Street. He knew horses and became a buyer of horsesfor the U. S. Army Calvary School at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. After his children, Tom, Estel, Roy and Victor were grown, he divorced his wife Ida around 1910.

"'Uncle John' had a lot of pioneer spirit and saw great possibilities on the Grass Prairies of Colorado, where land could still be homesteaded. He took Victor with him and homesteaded several sections of land, part in their names and part in the names of Tom and Roy. Roy and Freda and their little girl Evelyn also moved to Colorado.

"In a few years John married Chloe and they had "this nice little boy, William Hoy, a darling redhead like Uncle John. Victor resented Chloe and also the baby. I spent the summer of 1918 with them, and it was a wonderful experience."

Myron visited Colorado again in 1949. Hoy, now grown, had married Willamae, and they had two red-headed daughters. Hoy was grazing cattle and owned a large trucking operation. "Hoy is very much like Victor in looks, taller, and has Uncle John's red hair." Apparently red hair came into the family through Perlina. Her brother William Walters had red hair. Perlina and Sinclair's son Thomas Sinclair Evilsizer had red hair. When people spoke of him and his cousin of the same name, they distinguished the two by referring to Perlina's son as "Red Tom" and the other (black-haired) man as "Black Tom". Perlina's grandson William Hoy Evilsizer has red-headed daughters.

Ida Cummins' first cousin, J. C. Kenton. I had written to the postmaster in the area to inquire about any Kenton addresses. Thus, I reached Mr. Kenton, who was about 92 years old and blind. The neighbor across the street read and wrote our correspondence. She said the Kenton tree was taken from Mr. Kenton's grandmother's bible records. I'll send you xeroxes of the questeionnaire I sent to him.

She was on who dedicated her li fe to education and was very successful at what she did. When retirement came she only ended one career to begin another at a higher level. She retired from being a teacher and began to teach teachers how to teach. She began her teaching career in a rural school during the beginning of the Gre at Depression, teaching in Iantha, then on to Lamar. She retired from Lam ar Schools in 1967, where she had been a first grade teacher and then elem entary principal; but she didn't stop teaching. What she had been doing part time, she then turned into full time, teaching teachers at their Horace Mann Lab School. She liked students. She liked her job. She was certainly a person who liked children. She was witty and very impressive. You e njoyed being with her. She was an institution. She was the kind of
person you will always remember. "Anytime you went into her office she had a remark or a funny story. She enjoyed the people she worked with. She knew something about all her students. She's worthy of a lot of respect."....... .....A eulogy delivered at her funeral Tuesday summed up her life very well..."Fay Evilsizer was a woman whose life literally touched the lives of thousands of others."

[NI574] I, Sandi Evilsizer, had a telephone conversation with Dot in Feb 2004. She was able to add information to this line of the family.

Upon checking, I found she died one week before my inquiry.

New Bethel Cumberland Presbyterian Church Organized 1839. The church has b een designated a historic landmark and is on the National Historic Registe r, Greene Co, TN On April 15, 1839, Phillip Evlesizer[sic], Wm. E. Smith and Thomas Davis m et and organized a church in the New Bethel Community. A petition sign ed by 38 citizens was presented to Presbytery then in session in Knoxvill e, Tennessee, requesting this Church Court to accept the newly organized c ongregation into their Presbytery, to be known as the New Bethel Cumberla nd Presbyterian Church. Knoxville, Presbytery accepted the petition and se nt the congregation resolutions. The early church members gathered around a very large tree which furnish ed shade from the sun and shelter from the rain. Benches of crude hewn lum ber were erected close to the trunk of the tree which served as their sanc tuary. The tree was later felled to prepare the site for building the pres ent structure. Proof of the church beginnings was found in 1945 when renov ations to the building were done. Under the floor of the church is a hug s tump from the tree which sheltered the people during those early camp meet ings. The first Elders were John Hull, Thomas Davis, Phillip Evlesizer[sic] a nd Wm. E. Smith. The first Deacons were Rufus Lucky and William Reed. On S eptember 14, 1939, the first session meeting was held. The following peop le were present, Isaac Davis, William E. Smith and Phillip Evlesizer. T he purpose of the session meeting was to select a delegate to the fall set ting of Presbytery. Phillip Evlesizer was elected as the first delega te to represent the new church at Presbytery.

[HI591] (Research):Descendants of Reese and Elizabeth were provided by Mrs Judy Castle Stubb s, of Nashville, TN

Complete genealogy found at

Descendant of the e immigrant Johan Caspar Allstadt (1673-1742). The India na census data for 1820 listed one male child born to the union of Rease a nd Elizabeth Evilsizer. Elizabeth died in the years between 1820 and 183 0, for Rease was shown in the 1830 census living singly, with his broth er William's family. He was also living there in the 1840 and 1850 censu s. William Alstott seems to be that logical son as he reported in the 18 50 census that his father was born in Tennessee. As Rease was the only mar ried Alstott of Tennessee birth when William was born in 1817, it is the a ssumption that William is the inferred son of Rease and Elizabeth Allstot.

Rease is the son of John John was the son of John (1755-1837) and Margaret Williams Allstott (1763- 1845). The grandson of Nicholas (1727-1783?) And Catherine Allstott. He w as the great grandson of Johann Martin Allstadt and Anna Judith Walter All stadt. He was the great great grandson of the immigrant Johann Caspar Alst adt and Anna Elisabetha Riegel.
«b»Rease Allstot «/b»was the seventh child of John and Margaret Altstatt. Rease was born in Knox County, Tennessee. His grandfather, «b»Nicholas Alstott«/b», had moved from Berks County, Pennsylvania to Rockingham County, Virginia, in the 1780s, right after the Revolutionary War. John and Margaret moved with their family to Tennessee around 1794.
Rease served in the War of 1812 in the Virginia Militia and received $8.00 a month as his pay. He was discharged in 1814. On November 1, 1815, he married Elizabeth Evilsizer in Rockingham County, Virginia. This union produced only one known child, William.

There a re no names for the wife or the children. Also In 1900 and 1910 the numb er of children birthed and still living for Sarah indicate that Charles w as still living. Chalres being born in 1873 could very well be married wi th 3 children in 1910.

[HI608] (Research):Last Dying letter written Feb 1893 by Maggie Martin

Farewell dearest ones life no more is mine. I must give up life’s joys a nd all she owns for the cold dark grave. But Oh when first I found th at I must die, Oh how dark were my thoughts. Each pierced my heart li ke a sword. But no human hand can save me. I must die. I must and leave y ou all in my youth. Why should I live a life so brief this question ha ve I asked a thousand times or more. Oh why should I cling to this sinf ul world. Why should I fear to die for Him who so bravely suffered and di ed for us all.

Oh how it hurts me to look on the happy faces and list’ to the merry voic es of my Brothers and Sisters dear and then Oh to know I must soon clo se my eyes on you all forever. Never more shall I hear your voices or s ee you all again. The cold grave will hide me from your eyes forever. I s ee I must give them all up. Life’s pleasures were made not for me, my li fe is very short and Oh I must die. Must let go of this earth and seek a m ightier hand for aid. Mother and Father I know you tried to save my you ng life but your help was all in vain. The mighty hand of death has got m e. Soon around me cold death’s arms shall fold. You’ll hear my voice no mo re, wait not for my coming feet, for my footsteps you’ll hear no more.

Oh dearest ones when around the table you all gather at meals look do wn at the end at my place and think of one who’s head is now covered wi th the sod. Who loved her place so well tho’ now it will be filled with S ister or Brother. I could stay with you no longer. Oh each long tired d ay and night of suffering. Oh I am not afraid to die. Oh why should I fe ar or dread to give up this painful life and rest forever more. Oh at tim es I long for death to come and rest my aching body that has been tir ed so long, and ease my pains for nothing else can do it.

Oh dear Sisters and Brothers when over my youthful head the grass shall gr ow, Oh forget me not . Susie, you know my cedar under the apple tree s it it at my head and when you stand and gaze on it Oh, think of the one w ho lies beneath, on it whose tired eyes has rested and bedewed. The you ng limbs with tears Oh, how many times have I stood on my knees under t he apple tree at it’s side and smoothed it ore with my weak and trembli ng hands and thought how soon it should wave over this now aching hea d. Let it shelter my narrow home from the scorching sun and winter stor ms as earthly hands shall shelter you

[HI631] (Research):Gaumer Branch As Carriage Manufacturers

This branch definitely had its beginning in the U. S. with Johannes Gaum er who came from Wurtemburg in 1820 and settled in Pennsylvania. The fir st three generations of this family, following that of Johannes were all b orn in the state of Pennsylvania. Frederick Gaumer, born possibly about 1750 or ‘55, represents the first ge neration after Johannes. Fredrick married SaDie Desch, a daughter of Ad am Desch, who came from Germany and located in Pennsylvania. Deseh and wi fe were parents of two sons and four daughters. Charles (3aumer, son of Frederick and Sallie Desch Gaumer, was born abo ut 1790. He married Lucy Ann Snyder, a daughter of Peter and Sophia (Frien d) Snyder of Lehigh County, Pa. Charles and Lucy Ann Gaumer became paren ts of six children: Edward B., the first to arrive in Urbana; Sarah Ann, J ames Aaron, Charles M., Josephine C., and Sophia. The thther, Charles B ., was a tailor by trade. Both he and his wife passed their entire liv es in the Keystone state. Edward B. Gaumer was born in August, 1827, in Pennsylvania. His first occu pation was three years as an apprentice at the trade of carriage making be fore the age of 19. He than went to Reading, Pa., where he was employed fi ve more years at the carriage making trade. From there he came to Wayne Co unty, 0., and was employed for short periods of time at Wooster, Zanesvil le and Columbus. From Columbus he came to Urbana in 1854 at the a ge of 27 years. Here he and Warren established the carriage firm which I h ave already described. On March 13, 1856, Edward B. Gaumer was united in marriage with Hannah Ham mond, who was born in Lehigh County, Pa. They were parents of five childre n. One died in childhood. The four who grew to maturity were Augustus H ., George E., Alice L., and C. Blanch. The two sons both joined their fath ers in the carriage factory. Augustus H. was born in Urbana, Dec. 18, 1856. He received his educati on in Urbana schools, and was connected with the enterprise establish ed by his tither for nearly a half-century. In 1884 he was united in marri age with Miss Cyrena Johnson, daughter of Levi Johnson, a son of David Joh nson, a pioneer family of Concord Township. Augustus H. and Cyrena were pa rents of Josephine A. and Keren J. Gaumer. George F. Gaumer was likewise associated with the father in the carriage b usiness. He was born inJanuaty, 1861,was married in 1897 to Miss Martha Ku nath, who was barn in Neustadt, Germany. Edward K. and Agnes H. were the ir children. Thus concludes six generations of two honored Urbana families. One that fo unded a successfiil enterprise more than a century ago, the other that che rished a pride in an unfaltering effort of good journalism.

[HI635] (Research):Ed and Anna bought the Savoy Hotel in Kansas City and moved there. Her mother Callie was living at the hotel at the time of her death. The building, which was built in 1888 and includes Kansas City's oldest restaurant, the Savoy Grill, survived an Oct. 23, 2014 fire, which gutted the restaurant's kitchen but did no structural damage. Opened in 1903, the Savoy Grill is one of six dining rooms on the ground floor and includes one of the building's two main entryways along Ninth Street. It is well known for features such as its original carved oak bar, stained glass windows, a booth that was frequented by President Harry S. Truman and a mural that encircles the top of the dining room and depicts a pioneer-era trip from the Westport Landing to Santa Fe, N.M.

Life of Eldon Evilsizor Who Died August 6, 1910 Eldon Evilsizor of near Glen Echo, Clark Co, was born in Mad River township, September 30, 1835, and departed this life August 6, 1910, aged 74 years, 10 months and 17 days. He was married to Emily Jane Low of Urbana September 24, 1857. To their union were born 14 children, 9 sons and 5 daughters. The five daughters And 2 sons preceded their father in death. There remains to mourn his departure and aged wife, seven sons and 17 grandchildren and one great grandchild, two brothers and two sisters; three half-brothers and one half-sister, besides many relatives and friends to mourn his departure. By occupation he was a farmer, by a religious profession he was a Baptist, having united with the Nettle Creek Baptist church when a young man and was baptized by Elder Samuel Williams. He was a firm believer in the final perseverance of the saints, by that hope and faith he lived and in the triumph of that faith he died. His life by times may not have been exemplary, yet he possessed many noble traits of character. He was always courteous and kind, the latch string to his home was always on the outside, his friends were many, and enemies few, if any. He was afflicted when a small boy, and never afterward saw a well day, but was ever cheerful and constantly looked on the bright side of life. His genial temper and peaceful disposition made for him many and fast friends. Funeral services were conducted by his pastor, Elder T C William at the Nettle Creek Baptist Church August 8, 1910, after which his body was laid to rest in the Cemetery near by in the presence of a large assembly of sympathizing relatives and friends. The past is naught but memory With vivid brush we recall it; The future is not but fond hope With eager breath we forestall it. The present only is a flash It passes ere the thunders crash; Such then is life and that's in it A hope, a memory and a minute.

[DI660] The Champaign Democrat, Urbana, Champaign County, Ohio, August 11, 1892
The funeral of Mrs William Evilsizor took place last Sunday at 10 o'clo ck A.M. at the residence. Rev James Randel conducted the services. He selected his text from Psalms 23rd chapter and 4th verse. She was a faithful member of Harmony Baptist Church for a number of years and there will be a missing link in the church. She was always ready to bear her share of the burden of the cross, not only in the church she will be missed but in the neighborhood where she lived. As a neighbor, there was none better. She was ready at all times to lend a helping hand to those in need. In the family circle her kind voice will no longer be heard. For several months she has been gradually sinking away with that fatal disease, consumption; her courage never failing her. Physically, she was growing weak er from day to day; spiritually growing stronger. Our loss will be her gain. Julia Lee was born in Champing County March 31st, 1843; married to William Evilsizor October 31st, 1861; died August 4th, 1892, aged 49years, 4mo nths and 4 days. She was the mother of eleven children, five of whom have preceded her to the better world. She leaves a bereaved husband, five sons, one daughter, and four grandchildren and a host of friends to mourn her loss. The remains were deposited in the Nettle Creek Cemetery

History of Champaign County, Ohio by W H Beers & Co, 1881-page 716 William LEE, retired farmer, P O Terre haute. One of the noble pioneers w ho still live in this township is the man whose name heads this sketc h; he is so well known in the county that his name is familiar to all; h is life has been of that energetic sort that was characteristic of the fir st settlers, who have contributed the best years of their life to the deve lopment of this country. His father, John Lee, emigrated to Ohio with h is family, from Virginia in 1810; her purchased a tract of land of Willa im Copps, and settled upon it, soon after which he died, and, his widow n ot being able to pay for it, Copps again took possession; she rented a lit tle tract which was cultivated by the children for two years, when she pur chased 80 acres in the vicinity of Mr lee's present residence; this was pa id for, and the children, five in number, thereby obtained their sta rt in life; they were named James, Richard, William, Fanny and John. The m other's maiden name was Elizabeth Lowman, she was born in Maryland; she af terward married Phillip Stout; her death occurred in 1846. Four of the chi ldren are still living. William being the only son residing in the vicini ty of the old home. His marriage to Miss Susannah Blose was celebrat ed in 1832; they started in life on a cash capital of $100; by hard work a nd economy, William managed to pay for 24 acres, which was constantly add ed to, until he is now one of our large land-owners, having a half-secti on of valuable land, nicely improved, most of which was done under his sup ervision. His children, John, PHILANDER, Mary A, Elizabeth, Milly J, Susan nah, Henry, Dica, James A, Margaret L, Eliza E and Iva are living; two a re dead. All live in Ohio except Susannah who lives in Iowa. Mrs Lee di ed June 15, 1880 after living to see her children grow up to be useful m en and women; Margaretta manages the house since her mother's death. Mr l ee is a cousin to the late General Robert E Lee, one of the ablest Genera ls in the united States ever produced; his life has ever been characteriz ed by strict integrity, firmness of purpose, economy and strict adheren ce to business principles; he is now 71 years of age, as genial as wh en a boy of 20, and lives on his farm, caring little for the winter's stor m, as he is well provided for. We are glad to record his name among tho se deserving of having their names perpetuated in history.

Hezkial Zepheniah and Anna Hastings Burns emigrated from Loudoun County, Virginia in 1830, moving near Mechanicsburg, Goshen Township, Champaign County, Ohio. H. Z. Burns was a basketmaker. Children were Anna, Mariah, Thomas A. in 1835, James W., Henrietta, and George. H. Z. Burns, living in Goshen Township 1850, died there about this time and is buried at Mechanicsburg. After his death the family moved to Mad River Township. The father, dying early in life, left the widow with the care of four small children. Thomas being the oldest son, the care of the family fell heavily upon the mother and him. In the common school Thomas obtained the rudiments of an English education, and from his mother some knowledge of German and Latin. Farming and teaching school was his occupation. Thomas A. Burns was married to Louanner (Annie) Evilsizor, daughter of William and Nancy Jenkins Evilsizor Sr. Their marriage was performed September 17, 1857. A son, Alonzo Edgar Burns, was born to them December 29, 1858 near Urbana, Ohio in Champaign County. Alonzo Burns was raised on his grandfather Evilsizor's farm in Mad River Township. When he was 19 years old he came to Darke County, married Rosa Ann McDonald December 31, 1878, and made it his home. War trumpets sounded in 1861, and on the 9th day of May, he with others was assigned to the 13th O.V.I. That regiment was then over full, so they at once re-enlisted in Co. A. 66th O.V.I. of fighting fame. Thomas A. Burns enlisted at Urbana, November 6, 1861, as a private in Co. A, 66th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. In February 1864, he was transferred to Co. H, 1st Bat. Vet Reserve Corps, by reason of a gunshot wound in the left foot. He was honorably discharged at the end of his term of enlistment, as a private in Co. H, November 6, 1864. After a short recuperation in Ohio, Burns re-enlisted at Camp Chase, Ohio, as a First Lieutenant in Co. B, 194th Q.V.I., at Stevensons Depot in West Virginia. He was injured while drilling, and on September 19, 1865, he was commissioned Captain in Co. E, 194th O.V.l., from which unit he was mustered out October 24, 1865.Capt. Burns as he was called was strictly a military man. He found more pleasure with his Grand Army comrades than with any other class of man. He delighted to perform military acts and was extremely satisfied to be at the front of a company of men, directing them in march and drill. With his known dash and bravery he was an ideal Army officer.Old residents recall Capt. Burns attired in a long frock coat, carrying an elegant gold-headed cane in one hand and a pair of white gloves in the other hand, when he would stroll into town. He liked to dance; even in later years, he could jump up and click his heels together twice before hitting the ground, while attending a rally with his old army comrades.
During the Civil War Thomas A. and Annie Burns separated due to the hot tempers of both; they divorced December 1866.Thomas Burns after demobilization lived with his mother and studied law under Hon. Charles Hovies of Troy, Ohio.About 1872 he moved to Versailles, Ohio and practiced law.Captain T. A. Burns was elected 12th District, Ohio, Senator in 1891.
He died January 15, 1904 and is interred in the Greenlawn Cemetery, Versailles, Ohio. Submitted by Arlene York

I have been unsuccessful in locating the b. place for the ch. of Edward/Jo hn and Nancy Shall Ward. Evidently the family was in Harrison Co.

[HI697] (Research):Tombstone record appears to be read incorrectly in Denise K Moore book. S he is not inthe 1860 census, but in 1870 is age 9. Since she died in 187 1, I suggest she was born 1860-1861. The problem lies with the 1880 cens us with a daughter age 18 named Flora. Flora could have been the name of t he female in the 1870 census as it is difficult to read at looks like Sara h.
