I believe this Wilbur may have married Carrie Wood.

My reasoning is 1) location 2) others either older and already marri ed or too young. 3) in 1920 age 22 at home... 4) cannont locate in 1920 ot her than in Adams Co, OH with a wife Edna and oldest child 12 meaning he m arried Edna about 1907, 4) Also Adams Co in 1930 confirms his middle initi al is V (Vance). In 1930 he is married to another woman, Bertha M. 5) On ly Wilber who spelled his name Wilbert in the census

He is the eldest son of Thomas and Susan Chance and was born near Westville, May 17, 1842. He rece ived his education in the area schools, Urbana High School and Miami Unive rsity at Oxford, OH, where he was a friend of the Hon. Calvin Stewart Bnc e. In the fall and winter of 1860-61, he studied law under General Jo hn H. Young, at Urbana. April 17th, 1861, he volunteered as a private in C ompany D, Thirteenth Ohio Volunteer Infantry and served until his te rm of enlistment - three months - expired. He resumed the practice of l aw until May 27, 1862, when he re-enlisted in Company H, Eighty-sixth Oh io Volunteer Infantry. June 10th he became First Lieutenant of his compa ny with which he remained throughout its campaign in West Virginia. He w as then detached from his command and assigned to duty as Post Adjutant un der the commandant of the military post at Clarksburg, W.Va., and was must ered out. with the regiment at Camp Delaware, September 25, 1862. The foll owing fall and winter he spent at the Cincinnati Law School and in the off ice of Tilden & Caidwell. May 4, 1863, at the April term of the District C ourt of Hamilton County, he was admitted to the bar and November 3rd follo wing was appointed by Governor Tod Adjutant of the Fourth Ohio commanded by Col. J. B. Armstron g. On the 23rd entered the United States naval service as Acting Mast&s Ma te and was assigned to duty on the U.S. Steamship Gazelle, tender to the f lagship of Rear Admiral Porter and was with his vessel on Red River, Louis iana at the time the Fourth Ohio was called into active service though una ble to accompany the regiment into the field. He remained with the Gazel le throughout the disastrous Red River engagements in which the fleet und er Admiral Porter was engaged during that expedition. One of his comrad es and fellow officers at that time was Hon. James F. Campbell, the prese nt Governor of Ohio. On June 25, 1864, he resigned and the following Octob er 4th, he married Miss Frances S. Young daughter of General John H and Mr s. Elizabeth Young of this city. Since his marriage he has been actively e ngaged in the practice of law and has for a number of years been the partn er of his legal preceptor, John H. Young and Solicitor of the Pittsburg, C incinnati and St. Louis Railroad Company. He was unanimously nominat ed by the Democratic Congressional Convention of the Eighth district in 18 80 as its candidate for Congress, accepted the nomination and made a galla nt fight against General J. Warren Keifer, who was elected. Having led a f orlorn fight then it seems but proper that he should now be given a chan ce in a Democratic district. His ability, integrity and business sagaci ty are unquestioned. We have no doubt that he would make an active and wor thy Congressman and as a fellow townsman we wish him success in his aspira tions.

Comments from Denise K Moore 10/20/2001 That obit is confusing. Hannah Scott, wife of William Brelsford, was the daughter of Asa Scott and Mary White.

Mary White Scott, might have been (no proof, have not looked) the sister o f Samuel White (d. 1853) who married Mercy Watson.

Samuel brought his family to Ohio from New Jersey, but has roots in Bucks Co. PA. Mercy was the daughter of David Watson and Tamar Bailey. Their children: 1. Tamar White m. Solomon G. Brecount 2.

1850 Census says age 30, cemetery record says born in 1810

They were both born in OH and were married in Champaign Co. OH. Newton rec eived 50.5 of land in the NW 1/4 of Sect. 1, Twp. 3, Range XI upon his fat her's death. In 1879, after his mother's death, he sold this la nd to J. L. Edmonston and apparently moved out of the county. However, New ton and Deidamia are buried at Mt. Zion Baptist Cemetery, south of St. Par is in Jackson Twp., Champaign Co. OH. Their stones indicate that he was b. 1821 and she was b.1822, which represents a considerable conflict with cen sus records, including the order of birth of Peter and Newton. At this ti me we choose to accept the census records, not knowing the age and conditi on of the gravestones. Deidamia was a daughter of Elder William and Deidam ia FUSON. He was the founder of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church.

[HI14458] (Research):Upon his father's death, he receiv ed an additional 65.5 acres in the same quarter section, containing the ho me residence. In 1881, Peter and Rebecca sold to his brother, Newton, a ha lf acre strip on the north side of the quarter section. In 1881, they so ld two acres in the quarter section to Sarah A. BLUE, who may be a daught er of his brother Newton or the wife of his son Winfield. Sarah sold the t wo acres to Ralph FOSTER in 1883 and he sold it back to Rebecca E. BL UE in 1890. Peter and Rebecca are buried at Mt. Zion Baptist Cemetery, sou th of St. Paris OH.

Elizabeth is found without her husband in the 1840 Census of Mad River Twp., Champaign County, Ohio, with 3 children (of which I only know two, my great great grandfather and his sister). I believe the third child was a son. So, W. J. must have died before 1840, or there was a divorce. I wish that I knew his name. Possible names: The names William and Wesley are in my family tree. There was also a Winston Jones whom married an Elizabeth in Virginia that could be the possible parents. Elizabeth moved to Indiana with Daniel, Margaret and Alvin Kite, and possibly her other son before the 1850 census. She is found in the 1850 census living with Margaret and Alvin in Wabash Co.,IN. Daniel was living with an unrelated family as a farm hand. There must have been an epidemic in Wabash County in the 1850's because I number of my relatives (of all ages) died then. Margaret returned to Ohio with her husband after her mother's death and is found in the 1860 census in Mad River Twp.

[HI14517] (Research):From:shanktho@voicenet.com (Thom Shank) Saw your data on the Wise and Evilsizer family on ancestry.com. I'm desce nded from Michael Weis/Wise through his dau. Catharine who married Jacob S chenck/Shank. I wrote a book on the Schenck family in 1985 and includ ed a chapter on the Weis.

[HI14522] (Research):I agree that one wouldn't expect to find two J. Harrison Evilsizers in t he same time range. The marriage location, Emporia, is about 60 miles fr om Severy, where John owned a liverystable. And some recollections are be ginning to occur to me.

My mother thought my father had had a step-mother named Jenny, who committed suicide. My father was 21 when he married my mother. He had told her about his step-mother. She had asked him to go to church with her one morning and he declined. She went to a park and shot herself that morning. My father told Mother he had been very fond of the woman and always felt guilty about it--that maybe it wouldn't have happened if he'd gone to church with her that morning.

As I've mentioned, my father died when I was 12. I visited my father's cousin Joe Amery in the1960's to ask about my father's family. He dro ve me to the graveyard (Tinney's Grove) where Perlina's mother Moriah Walters is buried. As I recall, two of Perlina and Sinclair's children are bu ried there too. He told various stories, like one about the bushwhacke rs who wanted to hang Sinclair, etc.

I asked Mr. Amery about the woman I had thought, till then, was my grandf ather's second marriage. He was a very plain spoken man and said, "Na h, she wasn't his wife--she was his mistress." I had dismissed the id ea of a wife between Ida and Chloe after that and hadn't thought anymore a bout it until now. But didn't you say there had been child born to Jo hn and Elaine? If so, it makes it even more surprising that no one in t he family would have talked about it, including Cousin Joe, who I think wo uld have enjoyed springing it on me.

What really does give the marriage a ring of truth, however, is that my re collection was that my father had told my mother he was 18 when the suici de occurred, and that certainly ties in with a date like 1905, when he wou ld have been 17.

Before you told me about this marriage, I was already seeking the reco rd of John's divorce from Ida. My recent letter to the Greenwood county c lerk's office in Greenwood, Co., KS was turned over to the Greenwood Histo rical Society. A volunteer researcher couldn't find a divorce record b ut wrote to me, suggesting I try elk County, just over the line from Sever y. I haven't written Elk County but am getting ready to do so as so on as I write the volunteer to thank her. Knowing the divorce date da te would help determine the possibility of a remarriage in 1905. What rea lly makes me think the thing plausible, is that it seemd to me that Moth er said Daddy was 18 when the woman shot herself. Marion Evilsizer Kelliher 1/29/2001

TOOK HER LIFE ON RIVER BANK
Poor Health Caused Junction City Womand to Commit Suicide
Junction City KS, May 31
The dead body of Mrs J H Evilsizer, wife of a prominent livery man of this city, was found just outside the city limits by two boys who were fishing along the Republican River. Death was caused by a wound in the breast from a revolver which was found lying by the side of the body, which had been badly powder burned. The position of the revolver and th ebody are hard to reconcile with the theory of suicide, although the letter addressed to her husband, which was found with the body, indicates that the woman took her own life. Cornoer King empaneled a jury but the jury adjourned immediately after viewing the body and will not pursue the investigation further until Wednesday morning. Mrs Evilsizer who was aged between 35 and 40 years, has been in very poor health for several months past, and has brooded much over her failure to get better. She left home saying that she was going to church, but instead, she went alone to the secluded place along the river where her body was found, and probably took her own life.

"TREMONT'S OLDEST RESIDENT RECALLS SECRET INCANTATIONS By Mary M. Moore
Tremont City's oldest living resident celebrated her 90th birthday De c. 19. Born in 1875 in a log cabin one and one-half miles northwest of Tre mont City on Upper Valley Pike she has lived her entire life in Clark Coun ty. The last 65 years have been spent at her home on Blose St. in Tremo nt City. She was the second youngest of nine children born to Ruben (si c) and Nancy Smith Sager. Ada is the last surviving member of the famil y. Her eldest brother, Henry, would now be 108 years old, if still livin g. Besides Henry there were brothers, Winfield, Forest, John and Charle s, followed by sisters Lillian, Viola, then Ada, and Annie. Ada remembe rs trudging through deep snow as the children cut across fields and wooded hills to the old Jones school on Willow Dale Rd., a distan ce of about three and one-half miles by road. Teachers who stand out in h er mind were Hettie Harley of North Hampton, Clifford Baines of New Mooref ield, Charles Kiser of Lawrenceville and Manuel Circle of Lawrencevill e. Floods were a hazard, very often marooning the family for as lo ng as a week when the Upper Valley Pike was flooded. She recalls a gre at wind storm ripping out whole sections of Giant Beech trees from the hil ls behind their home when she was nine or 10 years old. Reuben Sager, Ad a's father died when she was but eight years old, and consequently, the la rge family worked diligently and on their two acres raised enormous quanti ties of produce for canning berries and plums for jellies, and apples whi ch were wonderful when dried. They raised chickens, ducks and geese and h ad such a large flock of turkeys that turkey shoots were popular at the ir home. A contestant paid 10 cents for the chance to compete. Sometim es very large crowds assembled for the sport. The woods were full of squ irrels, raccoons and polecats, and the wood pigeons (passenger pigeons) we re so numerous and tame that they would eat with the poultry. They beca me such a nuisance that her brothers would shoot them by the dozens and th row them away.
There were a variety of dangers, not the least an incident when her moth er defended the family from two ruffians with the family revolver. Two sh ots apparently wounded one and discouraged both men, who left hurriedl y. Though toys were rare in those days, Ada still has a set of tiny t oy dishes given to her for a Christmas present. Another momento of her childho od is a hand-whittled rolling pin made for her by a relative, Mr. Baylo r, when she was nine years old. One childhood diversion was watching t he making of bricks in the large kilns which were operated close by, usi ng clay from the surrounding hills. In the winter her brothers took an o ld wagon bed, mounted it on runners and suspending a large bell on a fra me above the front of the improvised giant sled, would careen wildly do wn the Church St. hill in Tremont, with the bell sounding loudly to warn a pproaching traffic on Mulberry St. When William Sager, brother of Reube n, returned from the Civil War, he brought with him the large key to the o ld Libby Prison, where he had been held a prisoner during the war. Mrs. P attison still has the very large shiny key. William Sager later married h is brother's widow, Ada's mother. Family circumstances forced A da to go to work at the tender age of 10. Her mother was locally renown ed for her ability to cure "short growth," a condition in which a child re mained small and generally sickly. Although her treatment was unorthod ox and involved the use of linen thread for measuring and incantations whi ch were secret, still her uncanny success in all of her cases soon convert ed most local skeptics. Ada married John Elmer Pattison in Urbana Fe b. 7, 1892 (sic). Mr. Pattison operated a threshing machine and a sawmil l. Later he became an auto mechanic and repaired watches and clocks in h is home on Blose St. He died in 1948. Ada and John Pattison had four ch ildren - Hazel (Mrs. Vernon Adams of 2151 Old Clifton Rd.), Oscar, now dec eased, Esta, who resides with her mother, and Frieda (Mrs. Charles Zerkle of 1856 Broadway, Springfield.) Ada has fo ur grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchild ren."

!NEWSPAPER: "The Suburbanite" (a now defunct [1995] New Carlisle, OH pape r?) with the handwritten date of 1966 and including the same photo as in the a bove article: "SUBURBANITE STORY REUNITES RELATIVES AFTER 40 YEARS by M ary M. Moore Several weeks ago The Suburbanite ran an article on Tremo nt City's oldest resident, Mrs. Ada Pattison, 90. Last week there w as a knock at Mrs. Pattison's door, which when opened, revealed a relati ve whom she hadn't seen in almost 40 years. Mrs. Georgia Furrow, of S t. Paris, first cousin of Mrs. Pattison, had believed her dead until she r eceived her copy of The Suburbanite. She and her granddaughter, Mrs. Gard ner of County Line Rd., paid a surprise visit to Mrs. Pattison, who is rec uperating from a fall suffered while on a shopping trip to Dayton."

[HI14551] (Research): Probably "Springfield (O.) Daily News" (undated, but the date of 12 M ay 1948 is on a Wednesday, so it is probably that day's paper. From thi s, I figured the burial date of Saturday, 15 May 1948.):

VETERAN: War of 1812 Information from the National Archives Bounty-La nd Warrant Application which I received March 1990: There are three pape rs. One of these is an application for bounty land made on 24 October 18 50 under a U.S. law passed 28 September 1850. This application states th at he is sixty years old and a resident of Clark County, Ohio. It stat es that he was a Private in the rifle company commanded by Captain Samu el Hawkins, being a part of the light corps under the command of Major Charles F. Mercer in the Infantry commanded by Colonel Perkins ("he think s"). He volunteered at Shenandoah County, Virginia on or about the thi rd day of March, 1814 for the term of three months and continued in actu al service for 3 months and 14 days. He was honorably discharged at Ca mp Alpine, VA on 17 June 1814. A photocopy of this discharge is at the bo ttom of his application. A second paper is dated January 17, 1857 from t he Treasury Dept., Commissioner of Pensions, Dept. of the Interior. It st ates: "It appears from documents on file in this Office, that Peter Sag er a Private of Captains' Hawkins & Vanmeter's Company of Virginia Militi a, entered the Service on the 3rd March 1814, and served till the 17th Ju ne 1814, also from 25th July 1814, to 16th August 1814, the dates of his d ischarge." signed by B. F. Gallaher The third paper is dated 14 April 1 855 and says Peter Sager, age 63 years, is a resident of Clark County, Ohi o. It also states: "....that he has heretofore made application for boun ty land under act of Sept. 28th 1850 on which he has received a land warra nt for 80 acres No. not remembered which he has legally disposed of a nd cannot now return. He makes this declaration to obtain his bounty la nd to which he may be entitled under the act of Congress approved the thi rd day of March. He further declares that he has not held nor applied f or any bounty land under this or any other act of Congress except as abo ve stated."
In a letter to me written 1 February 1990 by Donna Hoberg 4728 Tee Vi ew Court Santa Rosa, CA 95405, she says: "I also came across a deed of sa le from Peter Sager and his wife Magdaleen to James Foltz (my direct ances tor), for eighty acres in Jasper County, Illinois. The Sagers lived in Cl ark County, Ohio, but were selling land in Jasper Co., Illinois. I thi nk this was probably bounty land that Peter Sager had gotten for servi ce in the Military.
In 1814, my ancestor, Solomon Foltz, father of James Foltz, served in t he military during the last of the War of 1812. In 1850, he applied for b ounty land in Jasper County, Illinois. He received forty acres there, a nd shortly thereafter, he moved with his sons James and Andrew and their f amilies to Jasper County, Illinois. In looking through all of the deeds that I cou ld find concerning my Foltz line in Jasper County, I found this deed betwe en James and Peter Sager. It was recorded in Jasper County, not Clark Cou nty, Ohio. My guess is that Peter applied for land in Illinois, receiv ed same, but decided not to move there and to sell it. I have read whe re many men did this with their bounty land. A great many of them never e ven went to look at it, just applied for it and sold it."
Donna sent me a photocopy of the above deed. The land was the South 1 /2 of the North East 1/4 of S.15 T.7 R.9 East in the district of lan ds subject to sale at Palestine, Illinois. It sold for $80.00 on 15 May 1 852. Could this land have been the first parcel of bounty land receiv ed by Peter Sager, Sr? Peter Sager never lived in Jasper County, IL as far as I now k now.

CENSUS: Peter Sager & family 1830: Hardy Co., VA (now WVa) - This inf ormation Sept. 1993 from Alan Williams 348 N. Mountain Ave. Monrovi a, CA 91016-2439 1840: German Twp., Clark Co., OH 1850: Moorefield T wp., Clark Co., OH 1860: German Twp., Clark Co., OH
NOTE: In the 1840 Concord Twp., Champaign Co., OH census there are the following two families with one family between them in the listing:
Peter Sager: Males 1 5-9 yrs.; 1 30-39 yrs.;
Females 2 0-4 yrs.; 1 10-14 yrs.; 1 30-39 yrs.
Philip Sager: Males 1 15-19 yrs.; 1 20-29 yrs.; 1 50-59 yrs.
Females 1 10-14 yrs.; 1 15-19 yrs. ALSO: On page 188 of the book "Virginia Historic Marriage Register" of th e Shenandoah County Marriage Bonds, 1772-1850 by John Vogt & T. William Keth ley, Jr. 1984, there is the following marriage:
"Peter Sager & Elizabeth Corbin 18 Dec. 1828; daughter of John s on of Philip" Alan L. Williams agrees that the Peter Sager in the 1840 C ensus of Concord Twp., Champaign Co., OH was the son of Philip Sager in t he 1840 Census of Concord Twp., Champaign Co., OH. Alan lists John and M ary (Barb) Sager as having sons Philip & Peter Sager. Therefore, Philip Sa ger in the 1840 Census of Concord Twp., Champaign Co., OH Census and Pet er Sager in the 1840 German Twp., Clark Co., OH U.S. Census were brothers .

REAL ESTATE: In the Clark County, OH Recorders' Office in Springfield, th ere is a deed dated 11 March 1833 for two parcels of land. Volume K P p. 347-348 18 acres in Section 17 Township 4 Range 10 8 acres in Section 11 Township 4 Range 10 This land was purchased by Phi lip Sager of Champaign County from Sampson Runyan and his wife Elizabeth A nn of Clark County for $150.00.

COMMON PLEAS COURT: Clark Co., Springfield, OH Chancery Record Book 3 P ages 124-137 October term 1834: The suit is against Philip Sager by Dav id Maggart & Margaret his wife, Jacob Somers & Christiana his wife - la te Christiana Veneas and Adam Veneas. (Later in the suit it says: "And t he said Henry Veneas departed this life intestate about the year 1814 leav ing the following named children his only heirs at law that is to say Jo hn Veneas, Margaret Veneas intermarried with your petitioner David Maggar t, Christeena Veneas intermarried with your petitioner Jacob Somers, Sar ah intermarried with one Abraham Maggart, George Veneas, Elizabeth Vene as intermarried with one George Coffelt, Henry Veneas, Mary Veneas interma rried with one John Hoffman, and Adam Veneas your petitioner.")
The suit explains that on 7 Sept. 1818 when William Ross, Jr. made o ut a title deed to John Ebert for 18 acres of land, he wrote an incorre ct description. This incorrect description was copied 13 Nov. 1832 to Sam pson Runyan's deed from John Ebert and again on 11 Mar. 1833 when Samps on Runyon sold the same 18 acres to (the suit says "HIS FATHER-IN-LAW") Philip Sager .
The suit claims Philip Sager had been personally shown the correct 18 ac res, but insisted, incorrectly, that his ownership included 6 acres of woo dland instead of a 6 acre tract at a different corner. When Philip had be en about to remove and set new fences on those 6 acres of woodland, Dav id Maggart told him he didn't own the woodland, but Philip evidently stron gly disagreed.
Philip cut down trees on the 6 acres of woodland and was sued 6 June 18 33 by David Maggart for "Trespass & damage for cutting timber - charged $2 0.00." Philip lost the case on 7 Oct. 1833 and had to pay a Judgement to David Ma ggart of $1.50, plus court costs.
Later, David Maggart had Philip arrested and put in jail for assault a nd battery and on 24 Feb. 1834 Sampson Runyan and Willis Northcutt p ut up bail. Philip had a jury trial and on 19 March 1834, was found guilt y, and fined $10.00 and costs.
Philip lost the October 1834 Common Pleas Court suit. He was order ed to have new, correct deeds made and deposited with the Clerk of the Cou rt within 30 days, "be perpetually enjoined from committing waste on the p remises herein before ordered to be conveyed by the defendent to Complaine nts" and also pay the costs of the suit "taxed to $27.29."
In his defense statement, Philip Sager tells "that he emigrated from t he State of Virginia to Ohio and took up his residence in Champaign Coun ty in the fall of the year 1831." "...on the 15th day of June 1832 purcha sed of Sampson Runyon the tract of 18 acres..." "...and on 7 January 18 33 purchased of the same person 8 acres adjoining..." "...but in a differe nt section, and in the month of March following moved from Champaign Coun ty to and settled upon the lands so by him purchased and received a de ed of conveyance from said Runyan for the said land on 11th March..."
(Note: On 24 Apr. 1851, Philip's nephew Solomon, son of Peter Sager, ma rried Margaret Maggart, daughter of the same David & Margaret [Venice/Vene as] Maggart!)

REAL ESTATE: Clark Co., OH Deed Volume Q Pp. 45-46 shows this same land being purchased from Phillip Sager of Champaign County, OH by Jeremiah Sag er of Clark County, OH on 17 Oct. 1837 for $150.00. (Alan Williams sa ys in his 28 Nov. 1993 letter that he assumes Jeremiah was a son of Phil ip Sager.)
Clark Co., OH Deed Volume Q Pp. 530-531 shows this same land being purc hased from Jeremiah Sager of Champaign County, OH by Peter Sager of Cla rk County, OH on 10 January 1838 for $200.00. (Peter Sager w as Jeremiah's uncle.)
NOTE: The above land is a little northwest of Tremont City in German Tw p. It is the same land still owned by Peter Sager, Sr. (wife Magdalene Fo ltz) - plus an additional abutting 20 1/2 acres - at the time of Peter's d eath in 1870. The 1870 Clark County, OH Atlas shows P. Sager as the owner .
Clark County was formed 1818 from part of Champaign County (& others ). On a microfilm reel titled "Tax duplicates Clark County 1818-1825 Al so Champaign 1838" at the Clark County Library in Springfield, OH, the re is a listing in Concord Twp., Champaign Co., OH on page 93 of "Sage r, Philip Range 12, Town 4, Section 17 West 1/2 North West 78 acre s" FOR THE TAX YEAR OF 1818!
In 1833 & 1834 Philip Sager paid personal property tax in German Tw p. of Clark Co., OH on 3 horses, 3 cattle, and 1 pleasure carriage. Phil ip is not mentioned in the 1835 personal property tax list, but the Germ an Twp. land he sold to Peter Sager is listed in the 1834 tax book as belo nging to James O. Henslee, but at the end of the line it says: "Sager". The 1835 land own er tax list shows Philip as the owner. In 1838, Peter Sager is assessed t he taxes on that land and there is no more mention of Philip Sager in t he Clark County tax lists that I found.

BIRTH: According to research given me September 1993 by Alan L. Williams of 348 N. Mountain Ave. Monrovia, CA 91016-2439, Peter Sager was bo rn 1793 in Hardy County, VA (now West VA). According to information rece ived Oct. 1993 of research by Mrs. Michael Alan Moore (Susan Sager) of R. R. 1 Box 96-1 Bringhurst, IN 46913, Peter Sager, Sr. was born 29 March 1 791. Susan descends from Peter Sager, Sr.'s son Reuben.
FAMILY BIBLE PAGES: John E. & Marie Zerkle, 1033 Armsgate Road, Springfie ld, OH 45503 permitted me to photocopy four pages which had been removed from a family Bible at an earlier time. They don't know what happened to the Bible. The Bible page of Births agrees and states: "Peter Sager, s n of John Sager, and Mary Barb, was born March 29th A.D. 1791."

DEATH: Death record found in Clark County Probate Court, Springfield, OH Death Record Book #1 1867-1887 page 36. There was no index card a nd so I was surprised to see the death recorded on page 36 when doing a page by page search for Sagers in the Book #1 index. The clerk made an index card per my request. The record says that Peter died 22 February 1870 age 78 yrs. 10 mo. 25 days. Widowed Place of death: German Township Place of Birth: Hardy Co., PENN Farmer Cause of Death: Dropsy Place of Residence: German Twp. (Note: The State of Pennsylvania as his birthplace, ca nnot be true. Hardy County is in what is now West Virginia, but was at that time, Virginia.)
The family Bible page states: "Peter Sager Husband of Magdalene Sager
departed this life February 22nd A.D. 1870. Aged 78 yrs. 10 m's 23 days."

WILL: dated 7 Feb. 1870 Clark Co., OH and recorded in Clark Count y, OH on 28 Feb. 1870. Asks that his debts and funeral expenses be paid and also a set of tombstones to be worth $50.00 "for me and my wife Magdlena Sagars now Deceased."

BURIAL: with wife in the Rector-Gard Cemetery which used to be with a
Methodist log church, called Rector Church, mentioned on pages 686-687 in
"History of Clark County, Ohio" 1881 by W. H. Beers & Co. There is no sign of the church now, 1994. The land is shown on the Mad River Township map in my 1874 Champaign Co., OH Atlas as belonging to B. M. Gard.
This cemetery is a little north of Tremont City, OH just west of Upper Valley Pike in a rectangular area which juts out into a farmer's field from the southern border of Storms Creek. It is actually in both German Twp ., Clark Co., OH & Mad River Twp., Champaign Co., OH and neither county claims ownership - 1999.

BIRTH: The birth date of 16 May 1801 was sent to me November 1993 by Sus an (Sager) Moore. Alan L. Williams 348 N. Mountain Ave. Monrovia, CA 91 016, who is researching Magdalene's husband's Sager/Barb line, sent me t he date of 1799. From Magdalene's tombstone, I had figured it as May 180 1. Since both her father and grandfather died leaving wills in Shenando ah Co., VA, and Magdalene and Peter Sager married in Shenandoah Co., V A, I assume Magdalene was born there also.

FAMILY BIBLE PAGES: John E. & Marie Zerkle, 1033 Armsgate Road, Springfie ld, OH 45503 permitted me to photocopy four pages which had been removed f rom a family Bible at an earlier time. They don't know what happened to t he Bible. The Bible page of Births agrees and states: "Magdalene Foltz d aughter of Joshua Foltz was born 16th of May A.D. 1801."

DEATH: The date of death of 25 October 1860 is from her tombstone. Magda lene and Peter lived in the area of Tremont City, Clark Co., OH so I assu me that is where they both died. Peter's will provided for tombstones cos ting $50 for both he and his deceased wife.
The family Bible states: "Magdalene wife of Peter Sager departed this l ife October 25th 1860. Aged 59 years 5 mos. & 9 days."

BURIAL: Both Magdalene and Peter are buried in the Rector-Gard Cemete ry a little north of Tremont City, OH just west of Upper Valley Pike ne ar the Clark & Champaign County lines. There used to be a log Methodist c hurch with the cemetery, called Rector Church, but there is no si gn of it now, 1994. The land is shown on the Mad River Township m ap in my 1874 Champaign Co., OH Atlas as belonging to B. M. Gard. The cem etery is not mowed and is very difficult to see from Upper Valley Pike a nd also Storms Creek Road.

BURIAL: Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Tremont City, Clark Co., OH on Lot #369. H is tombstone is on its side very close to the ground. The dates are on t he top now instead of the side, and in order to read the name: "Peter Sag er, Jr." we had to scrape dirt and snow from the side of the monument a nd read it upside down. His daughter Missouri (Sager) and husband Frederi ck Schaal are buried on the same plot, but Missouri is spelled "Misoura."
His daughter Mary E. Sager died three days before him in 1883 and is bur ied in a Ferncliff Cemetery, Springfield, OH plot owned by a Sarah Goh n. His wife was buried on the same plot on 6 May 1904. Also on that pl ot are Sarah Gohn and Infant Hancock, but I don't know who these two a re at this time. (1994: It doesn't look as if there have ever been any t ombstones on this plot.)

One of eight women who are still living to remember their services as nurs es on the battle-fields of the Civil War is Mrs. Hattie Brubaker of St Paris. Of the 491 women who were engaged by the Un-ion government to act as nurses during the bloody days of the rebellion, only eight are still living, and of these eight only one Mrs. Brubaker, is an Ohioan. At 92, Mrs. Brubaker can remember that at the age of 18 she went with a friend to an ar my hos-pital where the sight of the wounded in need of assistance prompt ed her to offer her services as a nurse. She was accepted and employed by the government. Then she was Miss Harriet Manning, who while she was working tireless ly to relieve the suffer-ings of others she contracted typhoid fever. After trying to fight off the disease for about two years, she finally h ad to leave the service and go home to recuperate.Mrs. Brubaker is as active as a woman of 65. In addition to tending to her own little garden at her home, she does her own shopping and is oc-casionally called upon to relieve the ailments of those neighbors who call upon her, remembering that she was a civil war nurse.Mrs. Brubaker and the other seven women among the pioneers in the field of nursing for their sex. Of nurses in the Civil War, 10,252 were men and only 491 women.The other surviving Civil War nurses are Mary M.Watson, Lockwood, Mo; Bridget Murphy, Ashland, Ky; Eliza Pyle, Norris City, Ill; Mary E.Miller, Logansport, md; Mary C Upton, Cl inton,Ill; and Rose Russell, Vicksburg, Miss. These eight are now receiving pensions from the federal government for their services on the Civil W ar battlefields. [Note sent from Karen Heber 3/2015..This is quite an interesting article The Actual newspaper this came from is the St. Paris News-Dispatch. It also has her photo. She west to the army hospital at Grafton West Virginia with a friend.. She was living in Jefferson County Ohio in 1862 at the time. She was only 1 of 3 women at the hospital at the time. Her first assignment was the typhus and typhoid fever ward. The hospital was established from hotel which had been captured from the Confederates. In 1865 the hospital was moved to Maryland. The army soon enrolled her as a regular nurse and gave her the usual pay.]

Mr. Crockett Journell, though dangerously ill for a time, is supposed to be in a condition to recover, while Mrs. I. W. Byler*s condition has been reversed

St Paris Dispatch May 29, 1879 Mrs Allie Byler wife of J W Byler and d/o Lemuel Pence, Esq, died at father's res in Johnson Twp, Ohio, last Wednesday morning.

Concord Items June 5, 1879
Allie, wife of J. W. Byler, died on Wednesday last at the residence of her father, Lemuel Pence, in Johnson township, aged eighteen years. The readers of the Citizen will remember that she was married on last New Years day to her now bereaved husband. But that fell destroyer, consumption, seized her for its victim and rapidly carried her to the grave. The funeral took place on Thursday at the house, and was conducted jointly by Revs. M. Dustin and J. Steiner. Interment at Myrtle Tree. Thus passes away in perfect hope and exultant happiness one of our best young women.

[XI14597] Wife of John W Byler
Buried in Oakdale Cemetery on April 6, 1912 (Removed from Myrtle Tree)

[HI14598] (Research):I'm looking for a marriage of John W. Byler to Emma J. Spencer. It wou ld have occurred sometime after 1879. John W. Byler first married Alice P ence in 1879. Then Alice passed away 5 months after the marriage, accordi ng to a history book. He later married a lady by the name of Emma J. Spen cer. They had a son William S [Spencer] Byler. At some point John W. Byler moved to Fairview Michigan. He was an Attorn ey at Law. His family didn't move with him. I've found an Emma J. Byl er living in Illinois with her mother. William S. is also there. So, I've looked in several places, Champaign Co. and Logan Co. for a marri age record. I'm not sure if the real Emma J. passed away or they got a di vorce.

How I came to think there was another woman in John W. Bylers life: Years ago, my mother (also a Byler descendant) wrote a bunch of people a ll over the country. That was before the internet. I have a lot of lette rs starting in 1964. The one person that seemed to have it all together w as a man by the name of George Byler, who lived in Yeardon PA.

One of the charts he sent mother had John W. Byler, his siblings and the ir spouses. He had John's spouse as Emma ---. No mention of Alice.

After I retired, 199 I went to the Mennonite Library housed at the Gosh en College in Goshen Indiana. There I found a large notebook by a pers on tracing Miller Family. The Lewis Miller Family to be exact. I copi ed all of the pages that I thought pertinent to my family.The author w as a D.L. Miller and on the flyleaf it says, "Handwritten notes from a led ger in Miller family (Rhiel) history." I also had to make notes from t he book. The notebook was what he kept his notes in as he put together t he book. I wasn't allowed to copy (xerox) the book as it was oversiz e. So I also made notes from the book. In it he had all of the family in formation, including John W. Byler. E 1. John W. Byler Jan 5 1856, Wayne Co. Married 1. Pence 2. Spencer. Lived in Fairview Michigan.

I can find no record of Emma Spencer Byler living in Fairview MI. Each Ce nsus records indicates that John W. byler is there alone. I did a woman search on Ancestry.com and found an Emma J. Spencer with a s on William S. Byler living with her mother in Illinois. She was born in I llinois and William S. Byler was born in Ohio. In the 1900 census for Lib ery, Logan County, Ohio he (John) is the head of household, age 44 a nd it looks like he has been married 15 years. I can't tell if the lett er before that is W for widowed or M for married, but since the 15 is aft er the alpha letter I'd say it is M..

10 years later (1910 he is in Fairview Michigan, (Oscoda Couint y) he is 54 years old, lists himself as M 2 and 26 years of marriage. Whi ch I determine means Married twice and has been married 26 years. There a re two people listed before him as M1 8 years. John W. burned to death in his home in May of 1939. Notes my grandmoth er (his niece) made and a personal conversation with a native of Fairvi ew said he had knowledge of John Byler who lived in a certain house and t hat it burned. Taking it one step further: The 1900 census for Sterling, Whitside, Illin ois, lists an Emma J. Byler, aged 31single. born in Illinois. A son Will iam S. Byler, is 14 born in Ohio and single. He is listed as the grands on of the head of household, Emma's mother. If he's 14 in 1900 he would h ave been born around 1886 +/-. In the 1910 Census, Emma J. Byler says she is widowed and is 50 yrs. ol d. Her son William S. has married a Nellie. There really is no significant or primary evidence here and up until no w, I haven't had much time to spend on this family. On a chance happeni ng , I received a box of pictures and in it was a post card from Fairvie w, also 2 pictures of my grandmother and her children on the porch of my g -grandparents (brother of John W. ) who had also moved to Fairview. Th ey only lived there a few years and then migrated down toward Coldwater. The next day after receiving the box of pictures, I was walking at the Y w ith a fellow walker and he mentioned he had a cabin in northern Michiga n. I asked him where at and he said-------------------Fairview Michigan. With the coincidence of the box of pictures and my friend mentioning h is cabin at roughly the same place I thought maybe it was a hint that I ne eded to follow. finally my search through Logan and Champaign county USGENWEB Etc. a nd I found your web site which, I might add, is very well done. John's parents Henry and Rebecca Kurtz Byler are buried at the cemetery j ust north of W. Liberty. I have no idea where Alice is buried. Hope th is isn't confusing. phusband3@verizon.net Thank you ,Phil Husband ps. John is my great uncle.

New Evergreen Cemetery book has photo of tombstone pg 46 " Capt Samuel McMorran, son of Samuel and Barbara McMorran who establish ed the family graveyard that eventually became Evergreen Cemetery, is buri ed in a section known as MCMorran Reserve. It is said that upon Capt Sam 's death, his wife ordered a statue of an angel from Italy and had it plac ed upon a pedestal in the cemetery. Dissention arose in the family regardi ng the purchase of the statue among other things. As a result, the stat ue of the angel facies not east (as customary), but west, looking out beyo nd the confines of the cemetery. Angles symbolically represent messenge rs of God. When the wings are spread as if in flight, it is because they a re assinsting the soul of the deceased to heaven. The McMorran angel hol ds a book in her laft hand and a quill in her right, indicative of her rec ording the name of the deceased as he enters Heaven. On close inspectio n, one can see a tiny star on her head."

CAPT. S. T. McMORRAN, attorney at law, St. Paris; born in Jackson Townsh ip in 1831, and raised on his father's farm, in Johnson Township. His elem entary education was acquired in the common schools, and improved at the D elaware and other colleges of Ohio. His marriage with Susan Brubaker was c elebrated in March, 1855. In the fall of 1861, he rapidly closed up his pr ivate affairs and raised a company of soldiers; he entered the servi ce as Captain of Co. C, 66th O. V. I. In November of the same fall, they e ntered Camp McArthur, at Urbana, remaining until January, 1862, when th ey joined Gen. Landers in Virginia. In the same spring, they were engag ed in the battle of Port Republic, in which Capt. McMorran was slightly wo unded. Aug. 9, while participating in the battle of Cedar Mountains, he re ceived a second wound, which disabled him for service, and to-day leaves h im affected. He returned home in January 1863; joined the military Home Gu ard, which was mustered into service the same spring, continuing out 100 d ays. Thus has he shown a helping hand in the military duties of our countr y. On May 1, 1865, he associated with Isaac Brubaker in the organizati on of the first systematized bank of St. Paris. This received his supervis ion for twelve years, when he retired from its duties and engaged regular ly ill the profession o£ law. In the same year the bank was organized, Cap t. Mc.Morran was elected as Representative from his native county to the S tate Legislature, where he served so honorably that two years later he w as re-elected, thereby being a member of that distinguished body two succe ssive terms. Mr. and Mrs. McMorran were the parents of two sons-Isaac N. a nd one who died in infancy. Mrs. McMorran is a native of Champaign Co., bo rn in 1840

Urbana Citizem & Gazette May 10 1883 Abstracted by Pat Stickley for CCGS N ewsltter April 1996 pg54 A FAST YOUNG MAN L N. McMorran, of St. Paris, a Forger
St. Paris is again agitated over a little crookedness that h ad come to light in the last few days in that place, that involves I N McM orran, son of the Hon S T McMorran. Young McMorran has not always had t he reputation of being as free from crooked ways as he should be, but it w as never supposed that he would turn out to be a forger and especially th at of forging his mother's name. The particulars of the case as we have be en able to gather them are these: Mrs. McMorran had loaned a man named Chr is Custenborder, living at Quincy, near St. Paris, a considerable sum of m oney. Not long since Custenborder died and Wm. Ritter was appointed ad ministrator, who was settling up the business. One day last w eek young McMonan decided to get possession of part of the money and ta ke a girl with whom he has been on inthnate terms and go off on a "Sky Lar k." He repaired to the home of the administrator and with an order alrea dy prepared with his mother's name attached, calling for $1,600, s ucceeded in getting the amount of the order and in turn gave a receipt pur porting to be from his mother. Afer receiving the money h e, in company with a girl named Laura Faulkner, whose reputation is said n ot to be of the best, left with the $1,600 in his possession and has not s ince been heard from. Mr. Ritter, the administrator of the Custenborder e state, came to St. Paris and found out that he had been the victim of you ng McMorran. He at once demanded a receipt in full from Mr. and Mrs. McMor ran to cover up the forged order, which they at first refused but upon h is declaring that he would hunt him up and make it warm for the young ma n, they finally signed a receipt for the $1,600. The McMorran's are now lo oking after their wayward son, but can find no trace of him

MRS JONES had gotten out of the buggy in the meantime and h ad escaped a terrible death. MR JONES was born on the 23rd of Oct 1845 a nd died Apr 22, 1888, aged 42yrs, 5mo and 23 days. He is the father of sev en children. The funeral was held at the Baptist Church, Tuesday, Rev Thom as officiating. He was buried in Evergreen Cemetery.

Died on June 20,1889, JOHN McMORRAN, aged 73yrs, 8mo and 15 days. The fune ral was Sunday, June 23rd. Service by Rev Thomas Murray. Intennent in Ever green Cemetery .He was born on the farm now occupied by WILLIAM APPLE, a nd lived several years where his brother, CHRISTIAN died, until he remov ed to his fathers homestead south of town, where he ended his days.

JOHN McMORRAN, farmer; P. O. St. Paris. To the gentleman whose name appea rs above we are pleased to give more than a passing notice. He is the s on of Samuel and Barbara (Heaston) McMorran, who were among the pionee rs of this county. She was a native of Virginia, born in 1789; he was bo rn in 1785, in Pennsylvania, where he grew to manhood. About ten yea rs of his life were spent in the State of New York, where he was engag ed in clearing up a farm. In 1811 or 1812, he emigrated to Ohio, and settl ed near Dayton, Montgomery Co., then went to Champaign Co. three years lat er. In 1815, he entered a quarter-section of land in Johnson Township, a nd set about clearing up a farm ; and, of course, had to contend with t he hardships and inconveniences of the times. Cincinnati was their princip al market. Thither, over roads that to-day would be considered impassabl e, they took their produce, flour and bacon, and there procured their sa lt and iron-about the only two articles they were compelled to buy. Time w orks mighty changes. The pioneers lived on plain food and enjoyed life; th eir descendants gormandize and die premature deaths from the effects. M r. McMorran has served as Township Trustee in both Johnson and Jackson Tow nships, and was a juror in the Common Pleas Court for many years. He was t he father of eight children, six of whom survived their infancy and gr ew to maturity - John, Christian, Eliza (now Mrs. Simeon Pence), Samuel, J acob and James. The latter died at the age of 22, shortly after marriag e. John, the subject of this sketch, was born in Johnson Township, Champai gn Co., Oct. 5, 1815 ; was raised to agricultural pursuits, which has be en his occupation through life. He has divided something near 500 acr es of land among his children, and still owns about 118 acres. He marri ed Sidney Wiant in 1838. She was born in December, 1819, and departed th is life Aug.

The grandfather of this gentleman was Abraham Powel l, who was born in Virginia Oct. 20, 1754; served with credit in the Revolutionary war, and was married in his native State in August, 1780, to Ann Smith, who was also a native of Virginia, born Sept. 12, 1762 ; of this union, twelve children were born, Elijah, the father of James D., being the fifth in the family. He was born in Virginia, Aug. 20, 1789, and, his parents moving to Kentucky when be was a child, he there grew to manhoo d, and, in 1812, came with them to Champaign Co., Ohio, settling one mile west of Urbana, where his father died Jan. 3, 1817, and his mother Sept. 19, 1845. Here, in Champaign Co., Elijah was married, Jan. 27, 1818, to Mary Dunlap, the daughter of the Rev. James and Emily (Johnson) Dunlap, natives of the "Old Dominion," where her father was born July 10, 1773, and her mother Oct. 15, 1777. In youth they had moved to Kentucky, whe re they were married Aug. 29, 1794, and there Mrs. Mary Powell was born Oc t. 26, 1800. In 1812, Rev. James Dunlap and family came to Champaign Co ., Ohio, and few men were better known in the early pioneer days than th is old preacher of the Gospel, who was laid away at rest Feb. 28, 1866. H is wife died at Jacksonville, Ill., whither she had gone on a visit. To El ijah and Mary Powell were born eleven children, only three of whom are liv ing, viz.: James D., Jeptha and Edward. The subject of this sketch was born in Champaign Co., Ohio, March 3, 1819, and grew up under the parental roof, attending school a few terms. He had the same disadvantages to fig ht against that were then the common lot of every poor pioneer family, and few men were so fortunate as he in overcoming the difficulties attending the poor man. He was married Sept. 9, 1845, on the farm he now lives o n, to Miss Minerva Hill, daughter of Joseph and Mary (Purcell) Hill, natives of Virginia. Her father was first married in Kentucky, to Mary Olive r, to whom were born eight children. In 1802, they came to Champaign Co ., Ohio, settling on the farm where Mr. Powell now resides, and there h is wife died. Some time after his wife's death he returned to Kentucky on a visit, where he was married to Mary Purcell, daughter of George a nd Margaret Purcell, natives of that State. Of this union five children were the fruits, Mrs. Powell being the third in the family. She was born in this county Aug. 26, 1822, and has had six children, as follows: Ma ry (deceased), Amanda J., Emma E., Elijah H., Sallie A. and Annie M. Mr s. Powell's parents died on the old farm, her father in September, 1861, a nd her mother July 3, 1869-dying as they had lived, firm adherents of the M. E. Church. Joseph Hill was the first white settler of what is now Co ncord Township; served in the war of 1812, and, although a poor man wh en he settled in the woods of Concord Township, he accumulated a comfortab le estate. Mr. Powell's father professed the Baptist faith, and was a sold ier in the war of 1812, dying in this county June 11, 1866. His mother res ides with her son Edward, at the old homestead, where she went a happy bride, more than sixty-two years ago. She also belongs to the Baptist Churc h, and, considering that she is in her 81st year, is enjoying fair healt h, while the lingering sunset of life casts its shadows o'er a happy old age. James D. Powell is what we might justly style a self-made man, for the reason that he began life at the foot of the ladder, and is now the own er of over 800 acres of land, and is considered one of the leading farme rs of the county. This success is the result of hard, determined indust ry in his younger days, and then saving his earnings and investing them ju diciously. In all his labors, his wife stood ever ready to lend a helpi ng hand and cheer him in his efforts. He has now one of the finest homes in Concord Township, and there every one will find a warm, genuine gree ting of hospitality, without cold formality on the one hand, or utter negl ect on the other. Mrs. Powell is a courteous, refined lady, who knows how to make her home a pleasant one, and in her presence there is no constr aint. She is a member of the M. E. Church, but Mr. Powell belongs to no de nomination, and is politically attached to the Republican party. He is a m an of temperate habits, and is in favor of temperance laws. In his busine ss affairs he is a close dealer, but no man is more honest or upright in e very transaction. He is a good conversationalist and a well-informed gentl eman, pleasant and affable at all times, and highly respected by all go od citizens.

Accident- On the 14th of May, Mr J D Powell, one of our most highly esteemed citizens, while returning from Urbana, after nigth, was thrown from his buggy, near the residence of Pressley Talbott and injured to such an extent that he has been confined to the house almost ever since. The trouble is in the left knee, and it bids fair to make him a permanent cripple.

[XI14642] «b»Stories from the Lutheran Cemetery, St Paris, Ohio

«/b»I had just come across some info on my Great-grandfather's first wife Lizzie Pierce Maggert born in the St. Paris area on Aug. 16 ,1867. His parents split up in the late 1870s, At 13 he was alone living with a family out side of St. Paris. Pierce learned Blacksmithing as a trade. He also fell in love with Elizabeth Apple daughter of Peter Apple. They went to the Lutheran church in town and soon were married there by Rev. Minter on Nov.7, 1889. She was 17 at the time. In a short time Lizzie was sick with consumption and on Aug.7 1890 she died.

Thanks to Jean Maurer that donated some old church records to the St. Paris Library I found the cemetery she was buried in. My wife and I walked the Lutheran cemetery but found no head stone. In the north west corner there is a huge brush pile with many head stones that have fallen over the years and now lay in the play ground of the ground hogs. I talked to my daughter Shelley and granddaughter Shyenne and my cousin Juda and we decided to go to the cemetery and try to find Lizzie. Not knowing even if she ever had a marker.

We started clearing brush Sunday about 11:00 .We dug out headstones cleaned them up took notes and photos. One stone for Alexander Pence we rolled over because it was so heavy - must of been 2 or 3 hundred pounds. As the day wore on we were getting tired then Shelley hollered out I have a Lizzie on this one. Nothing special no death or birth date, not even a last name. I suppose the only thing a young husband could afford.

They don't know what happened to t he Bible. The Bible page of Births agrees and states: "Solomon, son of P eter and Magdalene, was born November 18th A.D. 1825."

VETERAN: There is small tombstone beside the large one which says "Solom on Sager Co. D (1?) 186th Ohio Inf." and there is a Civil War marker wi th it. There is no listing of Solomon Sager in the Civil War in "Histo ry of Clark County, Ohio" 1881 by W. H. Beers & Co.

MARRIAGE: Recorded in the Clark Co., OH Probate Court Record Book 3 P g. 260: 24 April 1851. Margaret's last name was spelled as Marquat on th eir license, but as Marquart on the recording. They were married by Reub en Miller.

BIRTH: Both Alan Williams and Susan (Sager) Moore gave me the da te of 18 July 1818.

FAMILY BIBLE PAGES: John E. & Marie Zerkle, 1033 Armsgate Road, Springfie ld, OH 45503 permitted me to photocopy four pages which had been removed f rom a family Bible at an earlier time.

BAPTISM: Information received Sept. 1993 from: Alan Williams 348 N. Mo untain Ave. Monrovia, CA 91016-2439 states Martin's baptism date of 20 Se pt. 1818 at Zion Pine Lutheran Church, Stony Creek, Shenandoah County, VA.

RESIDENCE: "Directory of the City of Springfield" 1852 Page 198 list s: "Sager, Martin laborer, residence stone house Main st. South side"

DIVORCE: Common Pleas Court, Clark Co., Springfield, OH Minutes Book #1 4 Page 407: Tuesday, October 25, 1853 "Martin Sager vs. Mary Sager Peti tion for Divorce This cause came on to be heard upon the petition and te stimony, and it appearing to the Court that notice of the pendency, Statem ent and prayer of said petition to the said Mary Sager, defendant, by publ ication in the "Republic," a newspaper printed and of general circulati on in the County of Clark, (the defendant not being a resident of Clark Co unty, and she having wholly failed to plead answer or demur to said petiti on, the same is taken as confessed; and it further appearing from the test imony in the case that the charge of adultery made in said petition is tru e. It is ordered, adjudged and Decreed that the marriage contract heretof ore existing between the parties be dissolved, and that the parties be fre ed from the obligations of the same; and that the petitioner pay the cos ts of this proceeding taxed at dollars, and in default thereof that ex ecution issue therefor as upon judgements at law."

MARRIAGE: Just a month and two days after the divorce there is the follow ing: Marriage Book 3 Page 497: "License to "Martin Sager & Elizabeth Smi th Parties of age (M. Cary voucher?) License: November 27, 1853" BUT T HEN IT SAYS AT THE RIGHT: "Not married - License returned"

JULIA 35 born OH, Benjamin 6, Julia Smith 8, John 2 - all born Ohio .
1870 U.S. Census: There is no general Ohio index for this census a nd no one has copied the Clark County part of the census into bo ok form as with the 1860 and 1880 censuses. Therefore, to find s omeone you have to know in what township they lived. I checked a ll of German and Moorefield Twps., Clark County on microfilm a nd couldn't find Martin and family. Our library doesn't have t he 1870 Champaign Co., OH U.S. Census to check Mad River or Urba na Twps. which border Clark County.
1880 U.S. Census German Twp., Clark Co., OH lists Martin 61 born VA, wi fe
ELIZABETH 63 born KY, Benjamin 24 son born OH, George 22 son born O H.

NEWSPAPER: The following article is undated and probably from a Springfiel d, Ohio newspaper. It was in a column (shortly after 1 March 1882) sign ed at the bottom as simply "HARDSCRABBLE". I assume this was the regul ar weekly Tremont City news column. The article was in a scrapbook put to gether by Mrs. Henrietta (Baylor) Wiegel of Tremont City:
"Of course, your readers and the public generally have heard of the dea th of Mr. Martin Sagers, a highly respectable citizen living about one mi le from this place. His son Ben was married last fall to Sarah Bechel (si c). Things not going at all smoothly with Ben and his wife he left h er a week or two ago. On the evening of March 1st Sarah went to Martin 's house about half past eight o'clock, taking with her a little boy who k nocked on the door. Mr. Sagers inquired who was there, and the little b oy told him his name (he was a nephew of Martin's), and Martin arose fr om bed and let him in. Sarah pushed in also. A fuss soon started, as s he said she was looking for Ben and they told her he was not there. Hot w ords passed between them and she rushed for Mrs. Sagers who was in bed. M artin undertook to put her out and in the struggle fell to the floor a cor pse. As soon as he fell Sarah left and Mrs. Sagers had to go a half mi le to a neighbor's for help. Dr. Gard was called who pronounced life exti nct. A warrant was placed in the hands of Constable Black for the arre st of Sarah. He went to her house and arrested her. He kept her under gu ard until after the inquest. A verdict of death from heart disease broug ht on by excitement caused by one Sarah Sagers was given, and the accus ed was released. Drs. Gard, Senseman, Whittaker and Barr held a post mort em examination on Friday morning and found the verdict of the coron er to be correct. Sarah is a bad character, and it is a pity that a commu nity has to have such a being in it. Our people would gladly pay their sh are toward giving her free board at Columbus. Mr. Sagers was buried he re Friday at 2 o'clock p.m.
HARDSCRABBLE"

DEATH: Death recorded as 1 March 1882 in the Probate Court, Springfiel d, Clark Co., OH Volume 1 Pg. 234 Place: German Twp. Cause: Heart D isease Age 63 It says that Martin Sager was born in HARDIN COUNTY, OHIO!
The family Bible mentioned above states: "Martin Sager son of Peter Sag er died March 1st A.D. 1882. Aged 63 yrs. 7 mo. 13 days."

BURIAL: Since the undated article above says: "Mr. Sagers was buried he re Friday at 2 o'clock p.m." I feel sure that he must have been buri ed at Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Tremont City, Ohio. However, there is no to mbstone for him.

REAL ESTATE: Clark County Recorders' Office, Springfield, OH Deed Bo ok 87 Page 404 dated 1 July 1882, Elizabeth Sager is stated as being "t he wife of Martin Sager now Deceased". It is a Quit Claim deed of her Dow ery estate selling 7 1/4 acres of German Twp. land abutting land own ed by Sarah E. Morris and others for $50 to Susan Rigel. The following Qu it Claim deeds are for the same land to Susan Rigel and, I assume, from ch ildren of Martin Sager (and from the first two wives???): Deed Book 87 Page 405: George Sager $100 " " 88 " 29: Benjamin A. Sager and Sarah A., his wife $50 " " " " 30: James Sagers and Julia Ann, his wife $50 " " " " 32: William R. Sagers and Martha, his wife $50
For $1 each on 1 July 1882, Elizabeth and all of the above also sold Sus an Rigel a Right of Way and Privilege to use as a road the following re al estate: "Strip of land 12 feet wide, beginning at a corner of a pie ce of land comprising part of the S.E. 1/4 of Section No. 17 and own ed by heirs of Martin Sager now deceased and extending west 12 feet. Then ce south parallel with Sarah Morris' west boundary line to Thomas Mahanna 's north boundary line where the above described right of way intersects t he present road leading to George Michael's Turnpike."

MAGGART FAMILY: Tremont City News "Springfield (O.) Daily News" Sat., J une 27, 1903: "Ross Wallace of Springfield paid his aunts, Mrs. Mary Judy a nd Mrs. Solomon Sager, a short visit last Sunday."

DEATH: Her death date is recorded INCORRECTLY as the date of 29 Nov. 1905 ! Recorded Volume 2 Page 448 Probate Court, Springfield, Clark Co., OH A ge: 77y 4m 21d Cause: Heart disease Born: German Twp. Father: Dav id Maggart Mother: Margaret Venice Residence at death: Tremont Ci ty Widowed
After I had found her obituary in the March 2, 1906 newspaper, I went ba ck to the Probate Court and rechecked the death record. I had NOT copi ed it incorrectly.
Because the obituary date and her estate record date below both are t he same, I feel sure that her correct death date was March 1, 1906. Her a ge at death in the record above as being 77y 4m 21d figures out that she w as born 8 Oct. 1828. Her tombstone gives her birth date as just 1828 (alt hough it does give her death date as 1907).

[BI14802] Research and notes from Bob and Flossie Hulsizer
BIRTH: On the 1860 Census, Mary was 30 years. On the 1880 Census, Mary w as 47 years. According to the card in the files of Ferncliff Cemetery, Sp ringfield, OH, Mary was age 64 when she died on 5 May 1904. Therefore, h er birth would have been either 1830, 1833, or 1840.
Note that she is listed as MAGDALENE PRINTZ on their marriage recor d. In the 1860 & 1880 Census records, obituary, and cemetery record s he is MARY.
Alan Williams 348 N. Mountain Ave., Monrovia, CA 91016-2439 states in h is 20 April 1994 letter to me: "I submit that Peter Sager Jr.'s wife was b orn with the name Mary Magdalena, a common coupling of names in that ti me period. She may have yet had a third name that began with the E., beca use many families considered Mary and Magdalena jointly to be one name."

DESCENDANTS: All records of Lydia's - Castle and Lafan - descendants we re mailed me in December 1997 from the descendant of her daughter Mary Eli zabeth (Castle) Weipert: Steven E. Houchin, 8475 SW Godwin Ct., Portlan d, OR 97223. Telephone: (503) 245-6029 E-Mail: HouchinS@aol.com This includes Lydia's death date.

CHILDREN: Census: Missouri, Buchanan Co., Marion Twp., p. 265 l.26, 29 October 1860 (Lafoon). Census: Missouri, Buchanan Co., Marion Twp, p. 29 l. 14, 28 June 1870 (La fan). Census: Missouri, Andrew Co., Monroe, V1ED48S15, 1880 (Lafins).

!BIOGRAPHY: The following was written in a note entitled "What I Know Abo ut Grand Mother" by, I believe, Frank William Weipert.
"I am not positive but if I remember right she was born and married t he first time in Ohio. And I also am not positive but runs in my mind th at my mother and Aunt Mary was born in Ohio. It seems I remember heari ng Aunt Martha tell they hadn't been in Missouri very long till she was bo rn and there her Father died when she was 16 days old with Consumption th ey called it in those days.
Grand Mother's maiden name was Lydia Sager born Jan. 16th 1831, was marr ied Sept. 25th 1856, died Jan. 10th 1916. Her first marriage was to Thom as Castle. Her second to William Lafan who passed on very suddenly eati ng his dinner on Feb. 6th 1909. Eliza Jane Castle, my mother, born Augu st 11th 1852. (I think here a mistake.) Mary E. Castle born Jan. 26, 185 4. Martha E. Castle born March 1, 1856. To the best of my knowledge from some papers down along some of Aun t Martha's things."

BIOGRAPHY: The mistake he refers to is that Eliza Jane is not his mothe r, Mary Elizabeth is. Also, note that the dates of birth of the three Cas tle sisters precede the stated year of their Lydia's marriage! He has und erlined the years 1856 and 1852. However, the 1856 "marriage" is 16 da ys beyond the birth of Martha, which is when he said Thomas Castle died. Records from O hio show that Lydia and Thomas were married on October 30th, 1851.

FAMILY BIBLE PAGES: John E. & Marie Zerkle, 1033 Armsgate Road, Springfie ld, OH 45503 permitted me to photocopy four pages which had been removed f rom a family Bible at an earlier time. They don't know what happened to t he Bible. The Bible page of Births agrees and states: "Amanda daught er of Peter and Magdalene, was born May 21st A.D. 1834."

MARRIAGE: Peter Sager, Sr.'s will names a daughter Amanda WAY. Clark Co unty Probate Court records in Springfield, OH Marriage Book 4 Page 1 37 show the marriage of William Way to Amanda Saygers on 8 March 18 55 by a minister by the name of A. Epick or Essick. It is difficult to re ad.
William Way is mentioned in Peter Sager's estate papers.

[HI14807] (Research):!FAMILY BIBLE PAGES: John E. & Marie Zerkle, 1033 Armsgate Road, Springfi eld, OH 45503 permitted me to photocopy four pages which had been remov ed from a family Bible at an earlier time. They don't know what happen ed to the Bible.

!BIRTH: The family Bible states: "Mary Jane daughter of Peter and Magdal ene was born November 3rd A.D. 1837."

!DEATH: The family Bible states: "Mary Jane departed this life Septemb er 6th 1840."

[HI14808] (Research):BIRTH: The date of 25 September 1847 sent me December 1993 from Susan (Sa ger) Moore is the same as on William's death record. Susan, his death rec ord, and his obituary all say he was born in Virginia. The 1860 German Tw p., Clark Co., OH U.S. Census lists him with his parents as age 12 and BO RN OHIO.
In the 1870 German Twp., Clark Co., OH Census, William is age 22 M D ay Laborer Born: OHIO and listed with his brother Reuben, wife Nan cy J. and their five children.
William's parents; Peter and Magdalene (Foltz) Sager OF CLARK COUNTY, OH IO, bought land in Clark County on 10 January 1838. The family is on t he 1840 German Township, Clark Co., OH Census. William, therefore, must h ave been born in Ohio and NOT Virginia, a n d when his mother was evid ently about age 46.

FAMILY BIBLE PAGES: John E. & Marie Zerkle, 1033 Armsgate Road, Springfie ld, OH 45503 permitted me to photocopy four pages which had been removed f rom a family Bible at an earlier time. They don't know what happened to t he Bible. The Bible page of Births agrees and states: "William, son of P eter and Magdalene, was born September 25th A.D. 1847."

VETERAN: Civil War His tombstone says: "Co. I 8th Reg. O.C." Page 3 12 of "History of Clark County, Ohio" 1881 by W. H. Beers & Co. says: " Company I, Eighth O.V.C." The "O.V.C." stands for Ohio Volunteer CAVALR Y, but his obituary says "O.V.I." which stands for Ohio Volunteer INFANTRY .

DEATH: The birth and death dates in William's Clark Co., OH death reco rd agree with Susan's research, but I don't agree with the birthPLACE. Bo rn: 25 Sept. 1847 VA Died: 24 Oct. 1935 Tremont City Parents: Pet er Sager Born VA Magdelene Foltz Born VA Informant: Mrs. Ada Patters on (Pattison?) Residence: Tremont City
On a family Bible page titled Births it states: "William Sager son of P eter and Magdalene departed this life Oct. 24th 1935 age 88 years 29 days ." This is written in a more recent and different handwriting (except f or Benjamin's death date) than the rest of the entries.

OBITUARY: "Springfield New-Sun," Springfield (O.), Clark Co., OH Frida y, 25 Oct. 1935 issue: "War Veteran Dies" (photo of William Sager) "Will iam Sager, 88, one of the few remaining Clark County veterans of the Civ il War, died at 2 p.m. Thursday at his home in Tremont City, where he h ad lived the greater part of his life. Mr. Sager's outstanding war exper ience was an imprisonment of three months in Libby Prison, most famo us of the Civil War army prisons. He suffered a cerebral Hemmorrhage la st Monday and had been in a serious condition since that time. He l ed an active life until a short time ago.
Mr. Sager enlisted in the Union Army in August, 1864, when he was 17 yea rs of age. In October of that year he was captured with his company, County. 1, Eighth Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry, at Beverly, W. Va., a sma ll town which a company of 80 men were defending. Confederate troops ma de a surprise attack at 4 a.m. During the last few years of his life M r. Sager could not remember many of the incidents of the war in which he served, but there was one thing he ne ver forgot, and that was the hunger experienced in the prison. Food on ma ny days, he related, consisted of two small portions of corn bread wi th a little bean soup in the afternoon. He was discharged from the pris on Feb. 15, 1875 (sic), after having been a prisoner for three months.
Born in Virginia, Mr. Sager came to Clark County when a young man, and m ade his home in Tremont City, where he lived until his death. He spent ma ny years in operating a farm, but had been retired for several year s. He was a member of Powell Post, No. 361, G.A.R. of Tremont City. Thr ee daughters, Mrs. Lillian Hartman, at home: Mrs. Ada Patterson and Mr s. Anna Zerkle of Tremont City; and five sons, John, Forest, Charles, Winf ield and William Sager, all of Tremont City, survive. The body was remov ed to the Frank and Barger funeral home in St. Paris. Funeral services wi ll be conducted at the Tremont Methodist Episcopal Church at 2:30 p.m. Sun day, in charge of the Rev. W. H. Fields, pastor of the church. Burial wi ll be made in the Tremont Cemetery. The body will be taken to the chur ch at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, where it will lie in state until time for the serv ices. Friends are requested to please omit flowers." (Note: Although the obituary actually says he was a prisoner f or three months until 1875, it must have been only until 1865!)

BURIAL: Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Tremont City, German Township, Clark Co ., OH There are four tombstones side by side. They are: "FATHER Willi am Sager 1847 Co. I 8th Reg. O.C. 1935" "MOTHER Nancy Jane Sag er 1843-1923" and two of Nancy's children from her first husband Reuben S ager (William Sager's brother): "Winfield Sager 1862-1950" and "Lilli an Sager Hartman 1871-1950."
On the back of the plot there is a tombstone which says: "Clarence Sage rs, Ohio Pvt. 51 Inf. 6 Div. July 18, 1934." Clarence is Nancy and Reub en Sager's grandson: son of William Henry Sager and Lavina Evilsizor Bor n: 30 September 1895 Mad River Twp., Champaign County, OH according to t he Champaign County Probate Court Birth Record Book 2 Page 496.

[HI14830] (Research):Early Settlers of Champaign County and surrounding areas. Adams Townsh ip Pg 91 Old Silas Johnson, the first settler in Johnson township, left two good fa rms in that township and came up in Adams with his son Walker Johnson a nd located in 1818 in section 3 1. Silas died in 1819, his son Walker rema ined on the Adam's home farm. Walker was bom in Kentucky in 1787, was mar ried to Sarah McCrosky in 1824. They raised eight children, they with Wal ker, six brothers and sisters left numerous descendants in Adams and Johns on townships. Silas and Walker are buried on the home farm according to B eers history.

pg12 It is generally conceded that the first settler in Nettle Creek vall ey of Johnson Township was Silas Johnson who was a Rev War soldier taki ng part in much of the indian warfare of that time. This Silas Johnson sho uld not be confused with his son Silas Johnson Jr who later lived in Conco rd twp. Johnson was a native of VA, coming to Champaign county in 18 02 he squatted on a section of land about one-half mile west of Millerstow n. He built a cabin and cleared about a dozen acres during the summer seas on and then returned to Virginia, coming back the following year with h is family he applied for the purchase of his farm but the government ask ed $8 an acre for it. He considered that too high and went to the next sec tion morth where he secured 160 acres for much less money.

Submitted by Barbara Adams, Sidney, OH Silas Johnston was born in Greenbrier county Virginia in 1758 and di ed in Champaign county, Ohio, 1818. in the intervening years he lived in t hree states, was involved in two major wars, fathered seven children and b ecame grandfather of at least a dozen grandchildren. Now, in 1996, he is t he ancestor of hundreds of Johnstons and associated names. Silas was the s on of Arwalker and Rebecca Johnston, Irish immigrants. He had three kno wn brothers and one sister: William, James, Robert and Mary all born in Gr eenbrier county. Following the Revolutionary War, where Silas participat ed as a spy under Jamison and his father as a Patriot, the family except W illiam, went to Fayette county, Kentucky. Deeds recorded in 1780 show Arwa lker the owner of 1200 acres, 142½ acres of which he sold Samuel and 15 7½ acres to Silas. Arwalker and Rebecca are believed to have died in Fayet te county. Silas returned to Greenbrier County in 1786 for there on Apr il 21st he married Phebe Ward. Their children were: twins, Walker and Jame s, Charles, Silas Jr., Rebecca, Elizabeth and Phebe, all born in Fayette c ounty. In the spring of 1802 Silas and the twins walked to Champaign county, Ohi o. They selected an attractive spot near Millerstown, built a small cab in and cleared a few acres. in the fall they went back to Kentucky. The ne xt spring Silas and the twins led the rest of the family to the cabin. Th ey were the first white settlers in that township, named Johnston for Sila s. Very soon the cabin was too crowded and they erected a larger one, th is time selecting a spot near a fine spring a few hundred feet from the or iginal site. The Indians were their neighbors and while they were usual ly friendly, the family kept a watchful eye on them. Silas was a Maj or in the War of 1812, under James McPherson, 3rd Regiment, 1st Brigade, 5 th Division, Ohio Militia. Three of his Sons accompanied him to the fron t, Walker gaining the rank of Lieutenant. The land on which Silas settl ed was valued at $8.00 per acre, which Silas thought too high. He mov ed to the section north where land was cheaper. Here he entered 160 acr es and built two adjoining cabins. The story is told the tax collector acc epted five coonskins, valued at $.25 each, in payment for the first year ’s taxes. In 1818 Silas ran for Justice of the Peace, but was defeated. Di sappointed and angry, he left Johnston township and moved to nearby Adam s, where he died the following year. Silas was laid to rest near the resid ence of his son Walker, in what is now Rosedale cemetery. In 1977 a Revolu tionary War marker was placed at the burial spot of Silas and Phebe. D

[HI14845] (Research):Beers pg 708 NATHAN BROWN, farmer; P. O. Terre Haute. The parents of Nathan came to th is county from Virginia in 1807; their names were John and Margaret Brow n. She was a daughter of Andrew and Sarah Davis, who came to this county a bout the same time the Browns did, and settled where Eli Allen now live s. The Brown family settled on the farm now owned by Nathan and Joseph Bro wn. The first cabin built in this part of the township was erected where W illiam Kessler now lives, and is still standing. This house was headquarte rs for seven families who had come to this county seeking a home in the n ew Northwest. The nearest cabin was five miles distant, and the woods we re still the home of the Indians and wild animals. There was no tra ce of a settlement when they came, and the first pioneers in this pa rt of the township were the Brown, Davis, Blue, Kelly, Kane and Grafton fa milies. They all came to this neighborhood about the same time. Many we re the pranks the youngsters used to play on each other, but all was tak en in good humor, and the " apple cuttings," corn huskings, and other fest ivities were made the scene of much merriment. When the girls went to chur ch, they all went barefoot until near the church, when the shoes were p ut on and worn until after services, when they again took them off and car ried them home. Economy was the order of the day, and, in those days of wo oden chimneys and puncheon floors, they left pride entirely out of the que stion. The parents of Nathan had eight children, of whom only four are liv ing-Joseph, Nathan (our subject), Andrew and Loruhama. She was born in 181 1, and was never married. Nathan, was married to Hannah Nitchman in 185 4; they have had twelve children, six of whom are living-Charles, Margare t, John, Rachel, Emmett and Ida. All the sons are engaged in farming and a re doing well. Their father is one of our prosperous men, and his wi fe is one of the most genial ladies that we have met. His sister, Lorubam a, makes her home with them, and the family are well cared for. Nath an is a conscientious Republican. The table of the pioneers was a punche on slab, laid upon two stumps. One time Mrs. Brown had baked a lot of pea ch pies, for a "raising," to be done that day. While her back was turn ed an old mullet' cow came up and finished the pies, and the boys who we re working were rather short on their rations. So many inconveniences we re they subject to that we cannot name them all, but their labors were n ot in vain, and the country that was cleared by them, and their noble live s, shall ever be a matter of history.

Alien Huffman was scalded by the explosion. Bert Beckwith was injured by the explosion and a run-away team. Doctors Jones, Hunt, Zellers, Baker, Offenbacker and Faulkner, were at once summoned to afford such relief to their sufferings as was possible.

[HI14911] (Research):BARNET JENKINS, farmer ; P. O. Westville. One of the most interesting biog raphies will be that of Barnet Jenkins, not only from the fact of his bei ng one of the prominent men of the township, but also that his reminiscenc es of incidents related by his ancestors and others of the occurrences tak ing place in the early settlement of Champaign County, can be correctly gi ven. Among the earliest settlers of this county were Thomas Jenkins and h is wife, Nelly Sisk. They were natives of Virginia, emigrating from that S tate in 1806. He entered a quarter-section on Owen's Creek, in this townsh ip, and was one of the first to erect a cabin. There were only a few settl ers, with cabins miles apart. Dense woods, wild deer and Indians were plen ty. Indians would frequently pass the cabins in squads, and sometimes wou ld show signs of committing depredations, although they never did any actu al violence. Somewhere about the year 1812, a number of the settlers fr om this locality were called to do duty at the blockhouse that was bui lt at Defiance, to which many of the people had taken their wives and chil dren for safety. Horses running loose in the woods during that winter beca me almost famished for want of food, and, when squirrels were killed and t heir skins thrown away, they were greedily eaten by them. This is remarkab le, but could be vouched for by numbers of men whose veracity was beyond q uestion. One of the first churches built was known as the Nettle Creek Bap tist Church. The children of Thomas and Nelly Jenkins were nine in number- Philip, Elijah, Jesse, the father of our subject, Edin, Thomas and Russel l, Milly, Ellen and Dica. All of these children are numbered with those th at sleep the sleep that knows no waking. Jesse was married in 1815, to Ann ie Pence. The Pence family were numerous, and will be spoken of at leng th in this history. Jesse was next to the youngest child, and, during t he lifetime of his parents, lived on the home farm and cared for them. Sho rtly before their death, he purchased a farm in Jackson Township. They h ad seven children-Barnet, Presley, Elijah, Thomas, Rhoda, Elizabeth and Re becca. The three eldest were born in Mad River Township. The death of Thom as, the grandfather of Barnet, occurred in 1830, and his wife, Nelly, lo ng before that period. Jesse died in 1869, and his wife in September, 186 8. They had done much toward the development of this county, and lived lo ng and useful lives. Six of the children are yet living, the four so ns in Champaign Co., and they well represent the name of the man who fir st settled in the beautiful valley of Mad River. Barnet is one of the infl uential and wealthy men of this township, and resides near Westville. Thom as Jenkins, after the death of his first wife, married Mrs. Susannah Magge rt. Her maiden name was Pence.

Champaign Co, Beers History JOHN H. YOUNG. Few men have the good fortune to win the honest regard a nd kindly sympathy of the community in which they live as has John H. You ng among the people of Champaign Co. He was born at Franklin, Warren Co ., Ohio, Sept. 15, 1813. His father was Gen. Robert Young, a native of Dau phin Co., Penn., who settled in what is now Warren Co., Ohio, in 179 6. He was an officer in the American army in the war of 1812, and, subsequ ently, an early resident, prominent citizen and attorney of Piqua, Miami County., Ohio, filling many important public trusts, among others that of Sta te Senator. John H., when about 15 years of age, began life in a printi ng office, but afterward received a collegiate course, completing his stud ies at Oxford, in 1835. He read law in Urbana, with Gen. Israel Hamilto n, and was admitted to the bar in 1837, since which time he his continu ed in the successful practice of his profession. He was married in 183 8, to Elizabeth J., daughter of Joseph White, a pioneer of the Miami Valle y, and afterward a resident of Urbana. They have three children living, vi z.: Frances, the wife of Frank Chance, a leading attorney of Urbana ; Carrie, the wife of M. E. Barber, of New Haven, Conn ., and Robert, who resides in Urbana. In July, 1844, he was admitted to pr actice in the United States Courts for Ohio, and, the same fall, was the D emocratic candidate for Congress in this district, his opponent being Ex-G ov. Joseph Vance. Some years afterward he was again a candidate for Congre ss, Moses B. Corwin being his opponent. The popularity of Mr. Young c an be judged from the fact that he always ran far ahead of his party ticke t. He was a member of the Ohio Constitutional Convention of 1873, and bo re a prominent and important part in its debates and deliberations, bei ng a member of the three most important committees, and Chairman of the Co mmittee on Amendments. He has been a Presidential Elector several times, a nd has filled many local offices devolving on men of known character and a bility. During the rebellion, he was an active supporter of the Governmen t, and favored all measures for the vigorous prosecution of the war. He h as been the honored and trusted President of the Third National Bank sin ce its organization. Mr. Young is a member of the Presbyterian Church, bu t, while giving his active support and sympathy to that denominatio n, is a generous supporter of all organizations and efforts for advanci ng the public welfare. He is a man of modest, unassuming character, urba ne and pleasant in his social relations, slow to arrive at a conclusion, b ut firm as a rock in adhering to the result of his deliberations. As a law yer, he stands deservedly high, and, being well versed in legal lore, h is law points are always well taken, and his advice can be safely relied u pon by his clients. He is an impressive speaker, a successful advocate a nd safe counselor, and has a well-merited reputation for skill and integri ty in his profession

CHRISTIAN McMORRAN, farmer; P. O. St. Paris; is a son of Samuel McMorra n, Sr., who was of Scotch parentage. They came to America before the w ar of Independence. Samuel, Sr., was born in 1.785, in Pennsylvania. Aft er spending his minor years in his native State, he became a resident of N ew York State until 1813, when lie came West, locating in Montgomery Co ., Ohio. One year later he removed to Johnson Township, purchasing eigh ty acres of land, now owned by William Apple. This, in connection with t wo other farms, he took from its wilds during life. While a resident of Mo ntgomery Co., Ohio, he married Barbara Heaston, born in Virginia in 178 9. She came to Ohio with her parents when but a child. Mr. and Mrs. Samue l, Sr., had six children, and each of them received a liberal heirship. Sa muel, Sr., died in 1863, and Barbara in 1864. Our subject was born in 182 3, in Jackson Township, Champaign Co., Ohio, and raised to farm life. He e njoyed the usual common schools of the day. In 1848, he married Sarah Loud enback, and commenced the channel of life for himself as a farmer, which i re has since continued. His first and only location was on a part of his p resent firm, but he now owns 520 acres under a good state of cultivatio n. This lie conducts on a good principle, and shows himself as an enterpri sing farmer. His wife was born in 1825, in Mad River Township, Champaign County., Ohio, and, after a companionship of ten years, she was called hence. H is second wife was a younger surer, Susan Loudenback, born in 1830. Four c hildren were born to each union; all are now living, eight in number. M r. McMorran's wives were daughters of Reuben and Mary Loudenback, who we re early settlers in the county; but have long since passed away.

Source: Prather & Stickley, "Book of Wiant Biographies," 1969, p. 71 Christian McMorran had "two families," for his two wives were the Loudenba ck sisters, Sarah and Susan, daughters of Reuben and Mary Ann (Wiant) Loud enback. The McMorran name was familiar to the Wiants, for two of John Wia nt (the tanner's) sons had previously married into the family. Sara and Su san's marriages to Christian McMorran followed, with a fifth to come wh en David McMorran's daughter married a Wiant. The McMorran family is list ed as "connected with the Clan MacKinnon" in the index of a book titled, " The Scottish Tartan" published in Edinburgh and London. Families in Scotla nd for centuries found it necessary to unite into Clans for protection. T he book states that "the MacKinnon Clan has supplied many soldiers of dist inction and one of the Chiefs was long imprisoned in the Tower (of London ). The coat of arms is pictured in color as also is the Tartan, or plai ds which the McMorrans are entitled to wear. The latter is an interesti ng combination of green, red, black and white. McMorran ancestors in Ameri ca are known to have lived in Bucks Co, PA, then in NY state, coming to t he Dayton, OH area about 1812. One of the sons Samuel (1785-1863), marri ed to Barbara Heaston, arrived in the St. Paris community about 1813. A souvenir of the McMorran emigration to Ohio is the old tar bucket used f or the covered wagon in which they traveled. Samuel bought land in Johns on and Jackson Townships, the latter just east of Evergreen Cemetery. After serving in World War I, Sam McMorran attended for six months a colle ge in Scotland while awaiting passage to the US. In Edinburgh a guide, aft er learning Sam's name, took him to an ancient, rock-hewn mansion with a c rest on an outside wall, where he was shown by the landlady, a huge seco nd floor banquet hall. This had been the home of John McMorran, Baylie a nd merchant, a magistrate in King James Vl court. A wooden plaque in the c eiling stated that John McMorran had lost his life in 1595 while defendi ng his sovereign from street rioters. In 1657, on one of his numerous freighter voyages, Sam met a Donald McKinn on, ships first officer of the vessel on which he was sailing, whose moth er and sisters were then living in their castle "Dunard" on the Isle of Ba rra, between the shores of Northern Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland. Christian and Sarah (Loudenback) McMorran's home in Johnson Twp was a mi le north and slightly west of St. Paris where in a log house, their childr en, Ellen, David, Barbara and Simeon were born. From wool produced on t he farm, Sarah wove coverlets including one for each of her children. Aft er many years of service, Simeon's heirloom coverlet still is attractive a nd demonstrates her skill. It is a treasured possession, for Sarah di ed at 33 years of age, leaving her four young children motherless. In the next year (1859), Christian married Sarah's younger sister, Susan L oudenback. Susan thus became step-mother to her two nieces and two nephew s, in addition to becoming the mother of five children of her own. A larg er house was built on Apple Road. Only bits of broken pottery, plow ed up in a field, mark the place where the old log house stood. In 1970 t he McMorran homestead was still standing on Apple Road, NW of St. Paris. Christian McMorran raised sheep, then purchased enough more to drive 10 00 head to market in Cincinnati. Christian rode and directed the boys, m en and dogs. All walked but he (so his son John enjoyed relating). The gir ls gathered the tufts of wool that clung to the rails of the pens, then wa shed and rinsed them in tubs of warm cistern water. The wool was careful ly separated and spread to dry. A part of it may have been used for comfo rt "bats" but homespun yarns still were used in many families for knitti ng hose, mittens and hoods. By this time, however, most coverlets were ma de by professional weavers, whose names and the date were woven in a corne r. Most of the McMorrans were Baptists, and the Baptist Church in St. Paris w as built on a lot donated by Christian McMorran.

Section 4 which is the highest point in the cemetery , contains many membe rs of the McMorran family as part of the agreement in purchasing the la nd to organize a cemetery involved providing burial spaces for the McMorr an Family and descendants. Many of their neighbors and close friends are b uried there as well. A large area on toap of the hiss is still called t he "McMorran Reserve"

St Paris New Era Mar 22, 1877 "There is a mvement on foot in this place to organize a Cemetery her e. We hear that several gentlemen including Mr John McMorran, S T McMorra n, D Strock, Jacob McMorran and others propose to be the Charter Members a nd organizers of the Cemetery. It is said to be located on Mr John McMorra ns land just across the railroad to the south of town--where several of t he McMorran family are now buried. This will be a good place for the cemet ery--although a little too near town, perhaps the land can be easily drain ed and it will be accessable to good gravel from the Noe pit by the new pi ke which is to run near the propsed cemetery."

Elizabeth b. 6 September 1778 Rockingham County, VA (parish register of St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Ch urch, Shenandoah Co. VA), daughter of William Pence and his wife,Elizabeth. Lewis and Elizabeth Bodey had at least one child, Sarah Bodey Frysinger. Lewis' second wife was Margaret Rebecca "Peggy" Frysinger/Frisinger, da ughter of Peter and Catherine, whom he probably married by 1816 and befo re his migration to Champaign County.

A ccording to the 1881 CH Co. history, Lewis was the father of eight children, with four children living in 1881. Lewis, his wife and daughter, migra ed to Champaign County, Ohio circa 1816 probably in the ccompany with his b rother, Christian Bodey, and his wife. Both of the wives are believ ed to be daughters of Peter Frisinger/Frysinger and his wife, Catharine Ak er. After Peter Frisinger died, circa 1814, Catharine relocated her family in Champaign County, in the year 1816. It is highly probable that a ll of the families traveled together. Lewis purchased 80 acres in the nor th half of the northwest quarter of Section 3 in Johnson Township. A purch ase deed is not to be found in Champaign County, however, the deed of sale is on file. Margaret was named as executrix by Lewis in his will and on 28 May 1846 she sold this land to her brother, Peter Frysinger.

Biography Beers 1881 Pg 748 In 1850 all of their children were living with Israel and Anna Minnich. Champaign Beers History pg 744 - BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES.JOHNSON TOWNSHIP. HARRISON BODEY, retired farmer ; P. O. Millerstown ; is a grandson of Fred erick Bodey, who came with his father from their native country, German y, during the war of Independence, in which they participated. The elde st Mr. Bodey, being seriously wounded in the bead, returned to his nati ve country, Frederick continuing through the war to its close, after whi ch he settled in the Shenandoah Valley, in Virginia, where be lived and di ed, at about threescore years of age. During life he was twice married, t he second wife surviving at his death, but she has long since passed awa y. Christian Bodey, the father of our subject, was born in Virginia in 179 6, where he passed through many difficulties in the pioneer days of his na tive State, and endured many hardships as a patriot in the war of 1812, af ter which be married Elizabeth Frisinger, of Virginia, born in 1800. In 18 16, they emigrated West, entering what is now the old farm, in See. 3, Joh nson Township, Champaign Co., Ohio. After a stay of three years in the dee p, unsettled wilds, the severe illness of Frederick, his father, called th em to their native State, where he died. While Christian and his family we re in Virginia, our subject was born, Oct. 18, 1819. Christian and fami ly remained, to settle up the estate, and, in 1821, again came West, taki ng up their abode on the previously entered farm. This they took from i ts wilds to a good degree of improvement and cultivation. Their first neig hbors were Indians, who were at times troublesome; many wild animals at th at time roamed the woods, but these have long since disappeared. He liv ed through the rise and progress of Champaign Co., until his death in 18 68 ; one year later his wife, too, passed away. They were the parents of t welve children, of whom five are now living, Harrison being the eldes t; he was raised during the early days of the county, and endured many thi ngs that only those who have passed through can describe. He married Nan cy A. Long in 1839, after which he engaged in cultivating his father's far m, where he remained until after the death of Christian (above given). So on after, he received his heirship, on which he has erected a comfortab le farm residence, and is well situated for life. Mr. Bodey is a man of so cial feeling, and a much-respected citizen. Mr. and Mrs. Bodey are the par ents of ten children-Agnes, Elizabeth, Christian, Harriet, Benjamin, Marga ret A., Harrison, Jr., Eliza E., Thomas J. and Vallandingham.

She answer ed the summons of death November 7, 1916, aged 75 years, 11 months, 16 day s. Like the good samaritan, it was never too stormy or bad for her to go a nd assist in sickness.

To this union was born two sons and three daughters, they being Willi am H. Snapp, of Finleyson, Ga.; J. T. Snapp, of Rosewood; Mrs. George Bate s, Mrs. Jack Pence, of St. Paris; Emma J.

Mrs. Snapp suffered much the last year of her life. She endur ed her suffering patiently until the end. Among her last words we re "I am trusting in Jesus." Though we miss her loving face from the home we hope to some day meet h er just beyond the vale so sweet be her rest till Gabriel's trumpet sha ll sound when the dead in Christ shall rise to life immortal.

The American Civil War was still in progress. The assass ination of President Lincoln occurred on April 15, 1865, and it was on abo ut April 30th that the Lincoln funeral train came through Champaign Coun ty en route to Springfield, Illinois. St. Paris had three floral tribut es to offer. It was a special honor for Christian McMorran that he was cho sen to place the community flowers on the funeral train. He was so deep ly impressed with the experience that he went home and said to Susan, "Let 's name our son Abraham." So their son was named Abraham Lincoln McMorra n. Until his untimely death at 16, he was known as Abie.

[NI15032] Champaign County Ohio Biographies
BENJAMIN NORMAN, retired farmer; P. 0. Millerstown. Another of the pioneers of Champaign Co. is Benjamin Norman, a grandson of John Norman, who was of German parentage; he lived through many of the wild days of Virginia, where he died. Our subject is a son of Mr. and Mrs. John C. Norman; Mr. Norman was born in Virginia, and she in Maryland; they married in Virginia, early in the. nineteenth century, and, in 1805, they emigrated to Ohio, locating on the present site of Millerstown. They were among the first white settlers in what is now Concord Township. He entered a half-section of land, which was all in the unbroken forest. He lived through nearly half a century in Champaign Co., when death seized him and severed him from his wife, who, twelve years later, also passed away. They were the parents of nine children, of whom four are now living, our subject being the eldest. He was born in what is now Concord Township July 16, 1806. He has since resided in the county, and is one among if not its oldest native. He lived through the pioneer days of the country, and watched its rise and progress, step by step, for three-fourths of a century. Mr. Norman is worthy of having a complete outline of his life, which we here record, on the pages of the Champaign Co: history, His earliest recollections are of the deep, unbroken forest that surrounded his father's lone log cabin, now supplanted by waving fields of grain. Their first visitors were the troublesome Indians, who have long been exterminated, and the Wild animals that roamed the woods, now driven by advancing civilization to seek a home in the Far West. Fine buildings have taken the place of the rude log huts, and many things could here be given that properly belong in the body of this history. At the age of 25, he married Barbara Ward, born in Virginia in 1811; after the marriage, he engaged in farming, and, one year later, his father gave him a quarter-section of land, a part of which he yet owns. His first land purchase was made in 1840, since which many changes have been made, and he has nobly assisted his children, six of whom have married, and one remains at home and dutifully assists her parents, Mr. Norman is located on Sec. 7, Johnson Township, where he has devoted considerable attention to the raising of fine stock, which he made a success. Mr. and Mrs. Norman have for many years been consistent members of the Baptist Church, and raised their family in the faith of the same

This is the correct family since dau Amanda married Squire Caldwell a nd is also enumerated in this census with her husband. Also dau Isable di ed 4/12/1900, 4 days prior to this census who married John Printz. Grandau ghter was Maud, born 1893, but same age. As per Richard Pence input in to this situation, he explains better than I what probably happened:

As for the 1910 census involving "Matilda," I have this vision of a confus ed old lady dealing with an enumerator who was haphazardly taking notes f or transcription after he got home later that day. After a coulple of dos es of grog and a hearty meal hf filled out the sheet.Obviously something h appened, for it can be easily shown that none of her four children were n ot living with her even though the census says they are. I checked Marion 's listing and find he was livin with his wife Laura and find that the enu meration was taken the same day as that for Mahala/Matilda.When you che ck and see that Mahala/Matilda had 4 children living at the time you can c reate a conversation through which the actual fact that 4 of her childr en were living into a scenario under which that are not only living but li ving with her.I have no explanation for New York. I had though Mahala's mo ther was born there, but the other census records I looked at didn't suppo rt that. I guess you have to chalk it up to the second cup of grog! My conclusion is that the "mystery" is actually errors that can be attribu ted to old age on one hand and sloppy work on the other.

ELI PENCE, farmer; P. O. St. Paris; is a son of Samuel Pence, born in Cham paign Co., where he was raised through the early part of the nineteenth ce ntury, many deprivations being connected with his life. He married about 1 825, to Mary A. Howard, a native of this State. After a companionship of s ome years, he died and left nine children. Mary A. still survives; has mar ried and buried her second husband [Adam Apple], by whom she had four chil dren. Eight of her thirteen children now survive. Eli was born in Johns on Township Jan. 20, 1842, and was left fatherless when but a child; he th en fell into the hands of some of his relatives, by whom he was properly c ared for until Aug. 4, 1862. At this time the great crisis of our count ry was raging, and he entered Co. H, 45th O.V.I., serving to the clo se of the war, when he was honorably discharged at Columbus, Ohio. Duri ng his military life, he participated in the battles of Knoxville, Tenn .; London, Tenn.; the battle of Resaca, Ga., where he was slightly wound ed in the right shoulder, and many other battles of minor importance. On M arch 4, 1866, after his return from the service, he married Rachel A. Srou fe. One year later he located on what is now his farm. This he has since p urchased by degrees, and now owns a well-improved grain farm. The childr en of Mr. and Mrs. Pence are Orlando, William F., Samuel C., Mary E. and E mma A. Mrs. Pence was born on their present farm, and is bus a daught er of George O. Sroufe, who was a prominent pioneer of this township [John son].

From Richard Pence Web Site Eli Pence was the last surviving Civil War veteran in Champaign County, Oh io, where he was born on January 20, 1842 and died on January 23, 1941, s hortly after turning 99. He was also the only soldier from the 45th O VI to attend the regiment's 60th and last reunion, in August 1933, and w as almost certainly its last survivor.

Born the son of Samuel Pence, whose father Daniel had come to Champaign Co unty from Virginia, Eli was sixth of nine children. His father died at t he age of 35 in 1845, when Eli was only three years old. His mother remar ried a year later to Adam Apple, also of Champaign County, by whom she h ad four more children. Eli, however, was raised by relatives, undergoi ng what his biography in the History of Champaign County (W. H. Beers & County, Chicago, 1881, pg. 761) describes as "many deprivations." On August 4, 1862, at the age of twenty, he enlisted as a private in the 45 th OVI and was mustered into Company H, which was largely raised from Cha mpaign County.

Eli was promoted to corporal on May 1, 1864 and was mustered out on June 1 2, 1865 at Camp Harker, Tennessee. His company suffered heavy losses in ki lled, wounded and captured, particularly in the siege of Knoxville and t he battles at Philadelphia and Holston River, but Eli escaped with on ly a slight wound to his right shoulder at the Battle of Resaca.

After the war, Eli returned to Ohio and, on March 4,1866, married Rach el A. Shroufe, the daughter of a prominent Champaign County family. A ye ar later he settled on the farm in St. Paris that was his wife's birthpla ce and was to be their home for many years. The couple had six childre n: Orlando, William, Samuel, Mary Ellen, Emma and Thirza Ann. Rachel di ed at the age of 72 in 1918 and on September 2, 1921, Eli remarried, to El len Walker, a widow from Plain City, Ohio, aged 62. This match betwe en an elderly widower and widow was unusual enough to warrant an artic le in the local newspaper, The Champaign Democrat, on September, 27 1921:

St Paris Man Weds at 78 A widow of 62
An event of more than usual interest occurred last week at Pla in City when Eli Pence, aged 78, retired farmer, of St. Paris, was unit ed in marriage to Mrs. Ellen Walker, aged 62, of Plain City.The marriage c eremony was performed by Rev. Sprouce, Baptist minister of Plain City a nd the couple went to housekeeping in the bride's home in th at place. Both have been married before and have families. Mr. Pence is o ne of the best known residents of St. Paris and Mrs. Pence is well kno wn in Madison and Union counties.

Eli took an active role in G.A.R. and regimental reunion affairs, becomi ng the reunion organization's last president. On August 16, 1933, he was t he sole remaining 45th OVI veteran at the regiment's 60th reunion, he ld in Urbana, Ohio. (For a fuller account of this reunion see the Reuni on page ) Eli also attend ed the Blue-Grey Reunion in 1938, celebrating the 75th anniversary of t he Battle of Gettysburg. He lived long enough to see start of World War I I, an event he had predicted in his remarks at the 60th reunion. Eli Pen ce died on January 23, 1941 and was buried in Rosedale Cemetery, Adams To wnship, Champaign County.

Eli's older brother, Isaiah, also served in the Union army, enlisting in t he 13th Ohio Volunteer Infantry in April 1861 and mustering out in Augu st of the same year. Four of Eli's cousins, Elijah, John, John Dugan and W illiam Pence, served in the 45th OVI. Elijah enlisted as a private on Ju ly 28, 1862, at the age of 25, and mustered into Company E. He was captur ed at Philadelphia, Tennessee on October 20, 1863 and died a prisoner at R ichmond, Virginia on March 4, 1864. John enlisted as private on August 1 1, 1862, at the age of 26, and mustered into Company C. He was mustered o ut on June 12, 1865 at Camp Harker, Tennessee. John Dugan enlisted as a co rporal on August 8, 1862 and mustered into Company H. He died of typhoid f ever at Covington, Kentucky on October 8, 1862. William enlisted as a priv ate on July 5, 1862, at the age of 24, and mustered into Company E. He mus tered out on June 12, 1865.
