The McKinney Maze

 

Vol. XIV, #1 Spring, 1996 ISBN 0736-2420

 

 

Letter from Barbara Stanfield

 

Hello again, McKinney Friends,

 

It's difficult to believe that we are beginning the 14th year of publication of the McKinney Maze. This whole thing started in 1975 with a single sheet of queries that I sent out to anyone who was interested – for $1.00 a year! I hope you feel that now you are really getting your money's worth with all the information that Pat compiles for you each year. Keep sending her what research you have.

 

After the last issue we received word from member Marilyn Russell in Midland, TX, that she had access to a computer scanner and could scan our old newsletters into the computer. What a godsend! She has done a few issues and will continue to do others as her time permits. Are we ever fortunate that Marilyn came along!

 

One day not long ago I took out all the VA information with the thought of recruiting someone like Fay Carol Crider or Gay Hewitt to put on computer all the information I had compiled from that state. By the time I had it organized, I had about 100 pages of VA information on McKinney's by county and the work was essentially done. It's all information that we've gathered through the years. Now I'll ask you if you have any VA information that you haven't sent previously that I can put on disk. Eventually I'll print it all out and put it in the library for you all to borrow. For now, I'll copy my disk and send it to anyone who's interested: Word Perfect for Windows 6.0. If you borrow a disk, I'd request that you add to it any information that you have that isn't already recorded.

 

Now, if you have Word Perfect on your computer and would be willing to help the Association please let me know. We need people to type information by state, by county. We have an outline to follow and we can give you what information we already have for the state you choose. From there, you could take information from past Mazes, your research, and anywhere else you can get it. So far we have the following states completed: New Jersey, Kentucky, Missouri, West Virginia and Ohio and they are in our library to put out on loan. Unfortunately, none of those states were done on the computer. So, if you love to input, you could redo one of those. These books will be a wonderful contribution to our McKinney heritage. Future McKinney researchers will be ever so grateful.

 

There's reason, I believe, to be a little concerned about membership. As of this moment, we have only 67 dues-paying members. Pat has always said that it didn't seem worth the effort and expense to do a publication for less than 100 members. What do you all think? It looks like we might have to raise our dues if we continue to print a newsletter with so few members. And we might not have enough money left after this publication to do another in the fall.

 

If you have some of the new modern (soon to be essential, I fear) electronic devices, please let us know your Fax number and/or how to find you on the Internet or reach you by E-mail. Letters of inquiry arrive here often from people who've heard about the McKinney Family Association on the Internet, so some of you are out there telling others about us. We're grateful.

Thanks for participating in our attempt to gather and preserve our McKinney heritage for future generations. You're doing a great job of it!

Fondly - Signed by Barbara Stanfield

 

FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK

A number of subscribers have noted that they have not been able to access our library with any success. Please contact our librarian at the address shown on the back cover, stating the name of the book you are interested in and enclosing $2.00 to cover postal charges. If you have not received or heard from John after a reasonable length of time, write again and make the same request, noting that you have requested the book previously. Our librarian travels on business a great deal and may not be at home when your request was made. Note the figure at the top of the page! It describes my computer talents at the present time. I promised to have mastered this machine before the next issue was published, and as you can see, it has not yet become a reality, but hope springs eternal!

 

We have received a pamphlet describing ÒA Conference for the Nation's GenealogistsÓ, at Rochester, NY, 14-17, Aug 1996, and hosted by the Rochester Genealogical Society. It promises to be a challenging and informative conference, so if you are interested in attending, contact the Federation of Genealogical Societies, P. O. Box 830220, Richardson, TX 75083-0220 for further information.

 

Marilyn Russell, one of our new members, is scanning and indexing back issues on disks so that it will be easier for us to forward material to members. She has completed at least four editions at the present time, and is working on another set. We do so appreciate her input – anyone else care to help?

 

SOME ADDITIONAL BALLARD INFORMATION

Howard W. McKinney and Flora S. McKinney

 

Mr. McKinney has submitted some brief data on Jesse McKinney and McKinney marriages in Knox Co., TN to add to the Ballard and McKinney material last published.

Jesse McKinney, son of James McKinney and Mary Ballard McKinney, was born ca 1788-90. He is not on the list of children in the 1785 minutes (Quaker MM), but is on James' will. He died in either late 1865 or early 1866, having made his will 25 Sep 1865, and it was probated in the March term of court. He was disowned in Stokes Co., NC on 5 Apr 1823, Amy Pell, daughter of Henry Pell and Sally Williams. She was not living when her father made his will on Oct 27, 1845. Some researchers believe that Jesse had earlier married Amelia Boren, but that has not been proven. We believe that he was too young to have fathered Rosanna McKinney who married Churchwell Tucker on 11 Jul 1823. If she were 18 or 20 when she married, her birth date would have been ca 1803 when Jesse was only 15 years of age.

1850 Federal Census, Stokes Co., NC Peter's Creek:

 

McKinney, Jesse, m, 60, NC; Grandville, 25 b NC; Hardin, 21, NC; Alexander, 17, NC

1860 Federal Census, Stokes Co.

 

Jess McKinney, 70; Allex, 26; Pell, J., 25 (male); Mary, fem., 22

 

Jonathan Pell married Mary Jane Cook, 25 Apr 1860. Jonathan is most likely a nephew of Amy's.

 

1. Grandville McKinney, b. ca 1825, d. apparently before the 1860 census, m. 14 Feb 1856, Emily Ferris, b. ca 1838 (1) William H. McKinney, b. c1857. In the 1860 census, Emily and William H. are listed with the Coleman Ferris family. Since the Ferris' are aged 70 they were most likely Emily's grandparents. Grandville is not mentioned in his father's will; grandson William H. is to have 45 dollars at age 21, Emily received $5. Emily married Green L. Sams, August 8, 1865, Surry Co., NC. I did not find the family in the 1870 census.

 

2. Hardin McKinney b. ca 1829, d. 1890-4. It is not clear if he was presumed to be living when Alex made his Will on May 7, 1890. There is reference indicating that Alexander still has the $50 designated for him in Jesse's will, suggesting the brothers were not in communication. Hardin married Louisa McKinney, the daughter of Obediah and Sarah (Smith) McKinney ca 1855 in OH. The family is on both the 1860 and 1870 census of Highland Co.

 

Hardin McKinney, age 40, 1870 census

Louisa McKinney, age 34, 1870 census

(1) Sarah McKinney, age 13, 1870 census, b ca 1856

(2) Daughter, died 13 Apr 1858 grave record in OH

(3) Jesse McKinney, b. ca 1865, age 8 on 1870 census

(4) William H. McKinney, b. ca 1865, age 5 on 1870 census

 

Both Grandville and Hardin named a son William H. I have not found the family on the 1880 Soundex. The executor of Alex' will, 12 Apr 1894, did not know if Hardin had any heirs.

 

3. Alexander McKinney, b. ca 1833, age 17 on the 1850 census, d. 28 Mar 1894. Made his will 7 May 1890. Probated 12 Apr 1894. A new item from Abstracts of Births, Deaths, Marriages, and Other Items of Interest from Mount Airy, NC Newspapers, 1872-1895, Compiled by Agnes Wells, Virginia Phillips and Carol Virginia Phillips and Carol Leonard: ÒFriday, Apr 5, 1894. Died near his place on Mar 28, Mr. Alexa McKinney, about 62 years old, unmarried. His nearest relatives are nephews and nieces who are living somewhere in the west . . . (Westfield, NC).Ó

 

Apparently, Alex had a long time relationship with a Mary Hudson/Hutson. In the 1870 census of Stokes Co., Quaker Gap Township, we find as one household – Alex McKinney 35 and Mary Hudson, 27. In the 1880 census, she is identified as ÒservantÓ. When he made his will in 1890, he left all his property to Mary Hutson. There was an older Jesse McKinney in Stokes and Surry counties. He bought land in 1771. There are also other transactions before 1800. We have no record that would confirm if he was related to James, who married Mary Ballard.

Editor: For many years, a Jesse McKinney was listed as a brother to the father of James McKinney (unproven). . John McKinney. If, therefore, this Jesse was in the same area as early as 1771, when John was supposed to have removed to the Carolinas, it may well be that Jesse McKinney was the uncle of James McKinney. Our earliest note of James' presence in this area was 1785, second month, when he was listed as asking for membership in New Garden monthly meeting, Guliford Co. In the citation, it was noted that he had Ôbeen in attendance for some time'. No evidence of John McKinney in this area has yet been found, however, a possible brother, Jacob, was in Rowan Co as early as 1758.

 

á      ÒHinshawÓ, James M'Cinne and his children under the care of this meeting for some time, now request to be joined in membership. New Garden, 2 month, 26th day, 1785.

á      1771, William Ballard and wife, and Mary Ballard, Jan 26, granted certificate to Cedar Creek (Hanover Co., VA), from New Garden meeting.

á      Ballard's at Cedar Creek in 1739. Received in membership in 1748, Camp Creek (Louisa Co.). Richard Ballard and Thomas Ballard, earliest residents of Guilford Co., NC, pre-1754. 1755, William Ballard and family granted certificate to NC. 1768, William Ballard married Rachel Moorman in Bedford Co., VA. 1–13–1771, William and family received from New Garden to Cedar Creek. 1776, William and family received from New Garden in Cedar Creek (where were they in the five years between applying to Cedar Creek, and their receivance there?)

á      1780, 1782, William Ballard, visits at Tom's Creek meeting.

á      1777, Byrom Ballard, elder at South River meeting (Bedford Co., VA), visits relatives in NC, and Thomas Ballard removes to Tom's Creek meeting. 1778, Moorman Ballard removes to Tom's Creek meeting.

The Taylor/Catron line of descent from Anthony Wayne McKinney and Joseph Jefferson McKinney By Rita Wuehrmann

 

Joseph Jefferson McKinney was a pioneer settler of Richland Township in Jay Co., IN. He evidently was a man of some industry and influence, having served as Township trustee for years, and for two terms, 1853 and 1857, as his district's representative in the IN General Assembly. He was a lawyer, a Democrat, a justice of the peace, and a Freemason. Joseph was born to Anthony Wayne and Elizabeth (Bracken) McKinney in Clark Co., OH, in Jan 1815. He died Jan 1, 1892, in Redkey, Jay Co., IN. His father was born in Newport, Campbell Co., KY, circa 1796, and married Feb 2, 1815, in Green Co., OH. Anthony Wayne McKinney served in the War of 1812 as a private with Capt. Samuel McCormick's U. S. Rangers from OH, participating in the second Battle of Tippecanoe. He later (possibly late 1830s) relocated to IN, where he set up a water power grist mill on the Mississinewa River near Fairview, Randolph Co. He died at Fairview in Aug 1873 or 1874, and was buried at Hillcrest Cemetery, Jay Co., IN.

Elizabeth (Bracken) McKinney was born in 1796 in VA. There is conflicting information about her death. We believe she probably died in Fairview in 1855. As his second wife, Anthony Wayne McKinney married Catherine (Walters) Morrical in Apr 1858.

 

Joseph Jefferson McKinney took as his wife Elizabeth Maitlen (their marriage certificate lists her as Medlin) Feb 9, 1837, in Albany, Delaware Co., IN, where evidently he had moved with his parents.

 

Elizabeth Maitlen was the daughter of Isaac Maitlen and Sarah (Fiers) Maitlen, and was born 1817 in Sulphur Springs, Green Co., OH. Isaac Maitlen and Sarah Fiers wed on Dec 17, 1804 in Sussex Co., Va. Both died in Niles Township, Delaware Co., IN. Sarah Fiers Maitlen died May 4, 1873 and is buried in the Bethel Cemetery there. Isaac Maitlen is said to have been interred on the family farm after his death on Sep 25, 1838.

 

Joseph McKinney and Elizabeth Maitlen were the parents of 11 children. All were born in Richland Township, Jay Co., IN. Their first, Sarah Ann McKinney, was my great, great grandmother. We will relate more about her later. The other children were:

Martha McKinney born Jan 2, 1840, died at the age of 18 in Jay Co., IN, probably unmarried.

Elizabeth McKinney born Sep 11, 1842, married Amos Hall Mar 24, 1859, died in Redkey, Jay Co., IN.

 

George W. McKinney, born Apr 10, 1843, married Monerva Phillips, died in Maylor, Ripley Co., MO.

 

Anthony Wayne McKinney, born Mar or May 1845 married 1. Martha Goe, 2. Mattie Trimble, and died 1918 in Dunkirk, Jay Co., IN.

 

Mary Molly McKinney and Susan F. McKinney, twins born Jan 11, 1847. Mary Molly McKinney married John Nieberger on Mar 1, 1866, and died in Redkey, Jay Co., IN. Susan F. McKinney married 1. Dr. Hollingsworth, 2. Lloyd Knapp, and died in Redkey, Jay Co., IN.

Nancy E. McKinney, born Dec 30, 1848, married Isaac Goe.

 

Jesse Bracken McKinney, born Dec 11, 1852, married Sarah Dunn on Nov 11, 1872, died 1929, in Memphis, TN.

 

Samaith Adaline McKinney, born Mar 11, 1856, married William Maitlen in 1874, died 1886 in Fairview, Randolph Co., IN.

 

Laury Ellen McKinney, born Jul 11, 1858, married Thomas Brown on Jul 22, 1882, and died in Ft. Wayne, Allen Co., IN.

 

And back to Sarah Ann McKinney. She married Samuel Sylvester Taylor on Mar 6, 1856 in Redkey, Jay Co., IN, according to their marriage certificate, or in 1855, according to both their affidavits in Samuel's military pension file. She died Dec 6, 1915, in Neosho, Newton Co., MO. Samuel Taylor was born circa 1836 in Fayette Co., OH, the son of William Taylor, who was born circa 1806 in KY and resided in Howard Co., IN from approximately 1838 to 1853. Samuel Taylor died Jul 7, 1907, also in Neosho, Newton Co., MO. Samuel Taylor and Sarah McKinney Taylor are both buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Neosho, Newton Co., MO.

Because of hardships Samuel endured during his service with Co. B, 138 Indiana Infantry during the Civil War, he was plagued by extremely poor health from that time. Possibly because of this resulting in his difficulty finding work he could perform, they moved frequently, sometimes living with or near Samuel's brothers. They were in KS 1882-1885 and 1887-1888, and then back to IN. They had settled in Neosho, Newton Co., MO by 1890. Their offspring numbered an even dozen. Again, their first, Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Taylor, was my great grandmother, and we will return to her. The other 11 children were:

Joseph Taylor, born Feb 6, 1857, in IN, and died after 1915.

 

Martha Jane Taylor and Susan Elsworth Taylor's birth dates are unknown to us. Martha Jane Taylor died Jan 18, 1865, and Susan Elsworth Taylor died May 7, 1865.

 

Anthony Wayne Taylor was born Oct 8, 1866, Jay Co., IN, married Ruth Poor, died Nov 13, 1940 in Neosho, Newton Co., MO, where he is interred in the IOOF Cemetery.

 

William Henry Taylor was born Sep 3, 1868 or 1869. He died unmarried on Jan 8, 1948 in Neosho, Newton Co., MO and is buried in the IOOF Cemetery.

 

Solomon Emery Taylor and Emma Ellen Taylor, twins, were born Jun 2, 1871, probably in Redkey, Jay Co., IN. Solomon Emery Taylor married Mary M. Crawley on Nov 30, 1916, and remarried ÒMamieÓ on Nov 30, 1928, after Mary's death in 1924. He died Jul 24, 1943, in Neosho, Newton Co., MO, buried in the IOOF Cemetery. Emma Ellan Taylor married Mr. Hurley, and died sometime after 1915, when she was a resident of Galena, KS.

 

Myrtle Taylor, born Aug 18, 1873 married Mr. Stevenson, also died after 1915, when she was a resident of Joplin, MO.

 

Jesse Taylor born Sep 28, 1882 married after May 13, 1898, to Mr. Grissom, died after 1915, when she lived in Missoula, MT.

 

Gertrude Taylor, born Oct 22, 1875 in Portland, Jay Co., IN, married Ernest Hawkins, died Dec 11, 1942 and is buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Neosho, Newton Co., MO.

 

J. B. Taylor died Feb 15, 1876.

 

And now Mary Elizabeth (Molly)Taylor. She was born Jan 1, 1856 in Dunkirk. She died Apr 18, 1840 in Prescott, Yavapai Co., AZ and is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery there.

She married evidently a Mr. Higgins, unknown place, and must have had one child, Nellie Higgins, listed below. She then married James Andrew Catron in 1884 or 1885, but we are unaware of the place. James Andrew Catron was born Sep 1862 in TN and died sometime after 1930.

 

James Andrew Catron's parents were James Wilburn Catron, born circa 1833 in Scott Co., VA, and Jane Seals born circa 1836 in TN.

 

Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Taylor also lived in NE and KS at some point. James Catron and Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Taylor were later divorced.

 

She lists a ÒGrandpa McAdamsÓ in her photo album, but we have found no evidence of where this family fits in. Possibly the McAdams are from the Higgins side.

 

My grandmother told me the Catrons went to CO to look for gold. In the census, James is listed as an electrician.

 

Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Taylor and James Catron's youngest child was my grandfather, Clyde Leroy Catron. Roy, as he was called, was born Sep 21, 1899, in Colorado Springs, El Paso Co., CO. He married Ada Susan Grace Rhodimer (they later divorced), and died Dec 14, 1953, in Phoenix, Maricopa Co., AZ. Ada Susan Grace Rhodimer was the daughter of Charles Bradner Rhodimer and Sarah Louisa (Weaver) Rhodimer. Roy and Grace are both buried in the Resthaven Cemetery in Phoenix, AZ.

 

Their only child was my mother, Mary Louise Catron, who married my father, Ira Frank Kelley, on Apr 1, 1938, in Phoenix, AZ. She was born Apr 13, 1922, in Los Angeles, CA, died Jan 16, 1970 in Phoenix, AZ. She is buried in Resthaven Cemetery in Phoenix, AZ.

 

Clyde Leroy (Roy) Catron's siblings include:

 

Nellie Higgins (half sister), born Mar 1884, in KS, married Charles Snyder, children Ella Snyder G. Snyder, Pete Snyder, and Jackie Ralph Snyder.

 

Maud Catron born Apr 1887 in Colorado, believed to have lived in Florence, MO.

 

John Catron, born May 1890, married Grace, resided in Pueblo, Colorado in 1919.

 

Molly M. Catron, born May 1892 in CO married Mr. Jackson, resided in Florence, MO, died Jun 12, 1932.

 

Jasper Catron, born May 1894 in CO, may have relocated to OR.

 

Flossie L. Catron, born Apr, 1896 in CO, married Mr. Anderson, died May 25, 1926.

The Taylor/Catron line of descent from Anthony Wayne McKinney and Joseph Jefferson McKinney By Rita Wuehrmann

 

Joseph Jefferson McKinney was a pioneer settler of Richland Township in Jay Co., IN. Joseph Jefferson McKinney was born to Anthony Wayne McKinney and Elizabeth (Bracken) McKinney in Clark Co., OH, in Jan 1815. He died Jan 1, 1892, in Redkey, Jay Co., IN, and is buried in the Hillcrest Cemetery, Richland Township. He was apprenticed as a blacksmith in Dayton, OH from 1833 to 1837, after which he removed to Albany, Delaware Co., IN, probably with his parents. There he established the area's first smithy. He evidently was a man of some industry and influence, having served as Township trustee for years, and for two terms, 1853 and 1857, as his district's representative in the IN General Assembly. He was also a farmer, a lawyer, a Democrat, a justice of the peace, superintendent of schools, and a Freemason. His father was born in Newport, Campbell Co., KY, circa 1796, and married Feb 2, 1815, in Green Co., OH. Anthony Wayne McKinney served in the War of 1812 as a private with Capt. Samuel McCormick's U. S. Rangers from OH, participating in the second Battle of Tippecanoe. He later (possibly late 1830s) relocated to IN, where he set up a waterpower grist mill on the Mississinewa River near Fairview, Randolph Co. He died at Fairview in Aug 1873 or 1874, and was buried at Hillcrest Cemetery, Jay Co., IN.

 

Elizabeth (Bracken) McKinney was born in 1796 in VA. There is conflicting information about her death. We believe she probably died in Fairview in 1855. Some sources report the year as 1833 and 1843; however, the 1833 date conflicts with the birth dates of some of their children and Anthony Wayne McKinney did not remarry until 1858. As his second wife, Anthony Wayne McKinney married Catherine (Walters) Morrical in Apr 1858.

 

Joseph Jefferson McKinney took as his wife Elizabeth Maitlen (their marriage certificate lists her as Medlin) Feb 9, 1837, in Albany, Delaware Co., IN. Elizabeth Maitlen was the daughter of Isaac Maitlen and Sarah (Fiers) Maitlen, and was born 1817 in Sulphur Springs, Green Co., OH. Isaac Maitlen and Sarah Fiers wed on Dec 17, 1804 in Sussex Co., VA. Both died in Niles Township, Delaware Co., IN. Sarah Fiers Maitlen died May 4, 1873 and is buried in the Bethel Cemetery there, while Isaac Maitlen, is said to have been interred on the family farm after his death on Sep 25, 1838. Joseph McKinney and Elizabeth Maitlen were the parents of 11 children, all of whom were born in Richland Township, Jay Co., IN. Their first, Sarah Ann McKinney, was my great, great grandmother. We will relate more about her later. The other children were:

 

Martha McKinney born Jan 2, 1840, died at the age of 18 in Jay Co., IN, probably unmarried.

 

Elizabeth McKinney born Sep 11, 1842, married Amos Hall Mar 24, 1859, died in Redkey, Jay Co., IN.

 

George W. McKinney, born Apr 10, 1843, married Monerva Phillips, died in Naylor, Ripley Co., MO.

 

Anthony Wayne McKinney, born Mar or May 1845, married 1. Martha Goe, 2. Mattie Trimble, and died 1918 in Dunkirk, Jay Co., IN.

 

Mary Molly McKinney and Susan F. McKinney, twins born Jan 11, 1847. Mary Molly McKinney married John Nieberger on Mar 1, 1866, and died in Redkey, Jay Co., IN. Susan F. McKinney married 1. Dr. Hollingsworth, 2. Lloyd Knapp, and died in Redkey, Jay Co., IN.

 

Nancy E. McKinney, born Dec 30, 1848, married Isaac Goe.

 

Jesse Bracken McKinney, born Dec 11, 1852, married Sarah Dunn on Nov 11, 1872, died 1929, in Memphis, TN.

 

Samaith Adaline McKinney, born Mar 11, 1856, married William Maitlen in 1874, died 1886 in Fairview, Randolph Co., IN.

 

Laury Ellen McKinney, born Jul 11, 1858, married Thomas Brown on Jul 22, 1882, and died in Ft. Wayne, Allen Co., IN.

 

And back to Sarah Ann McKinney. She married Samuel Sylvester Taylor on Mar 6, 1856 in Redkey, Jay Co., IN, according to their marriage certificate, or in 1855, according to both their affidavits in Samuel's military pension file. She died Dec 6, 1915, in Neosho, Newton Co., MO. Samuel Taylor was born circa 1836 in Fayette Co., OH, the son of William Taylor, who was born circa 1806 in KY and resided in Howard Co., IN from approximately 1838 to 1853. Samuel Taylor died Jul 7, 1907, also in Neosho, Newton Co., MO. Samuel Taylor and Sarah McKinney Taylor are both buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Neosho, Newton Co., MO. Because of hardships Samuel endured during his service with Co. B, 138 Indiana Infantry during the Civil War, he was plagued by extremely poor health from that time. Possibly because of this resulting in his difficulty finding work he could perform, they moved frequently, sometimes living with or near Samuel's brothers. They were in KS 1882-1885 and 1887-1888, and then back to IN. They had settled in Neosho, Newton Co., MO by 1890.

 

Their offspring numbered an even dozen. Again, their first, Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Taylor, was my great grandmother, and we will return to her.

 

The other 11 children were:

 

Joseph Taylor, born Feb 6, 1857, in IN, and died after 1915.

 

Martha Jane Taylor and Susan Elsworth Taylor's birth dates are unknown to us. Martha Jane Taylor died Jan 18, 1865, and Susan Elsworth Taylor died May 7, 1865.

 

Anthony Wayne Taylor was born Oct 8, 1866, Jay Co., IN, married Ruth Poor, died Nov 13, 1940 in Neosho, Newton Co., MO, where he is interred in the IOOF Cemetery.

 

William Henry Taylor was born Sep 3, 1868 or 1869. He died unmarried on Jan 8, 1948 in Neosho, Newton Co., MO and is buried in the IOOF Cemetery.

 

Solomon Emery Taylor and Emma Ellen Taylor, twins, were born Jun 2, 1871, probably in Redkey, Jay Co., IN. Solomon Emery Taylor married Mary M. Crawley on Nov 30, 1916, and remarried ÒMamieÓ on Nov 30, 1928, after Mary's death in 1924. He died Jul 24, 1943, in Neosho, Newton Co., MO, buried in the IOOF Cemetery. Emma Ellan Taylor married Mr. Hurley, and died sometime after 1915, when she was a resident of Galena, KS.

 

Myrtle Taylor, born Aug 18, 1873, married Mr. Stevenson, also died after 1915, when she was a resident of Joplin, MO.

 

Gertrude Taylor, born Oct 22, 1875 in Portland, Jay Co., IN, married Ernest Hawkins, died Dec 11, 1942 and is buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Neosho, Newton Co., MO.

 

J. B. Taylor died Feb 15, 1876.

 

Jesse Taylor born Sep 28, 1882, married after May 13, 1898, to Mr. Grissom, died after 1915, when she lived in Missoula, MT.

 

And now Mary Elizabeth (Molly)Taylor. She was born Jan 1, 1856 in Dunkirk. She died Apr 18, 1840 in Prescott, Yavapai Co., AZ and is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery there.

She married evidently a Mr. Higgins, unknown place, who was born in WI, and had one child, Nellie Higgins, listed below. She then married James Andrew Catron Jan 2, 1893 in Colorado Springs, CO. We assume they lived in a common law marriage beginning about 1885, because in the 1900 census, they reported having been married for 15 years, and they evidently had three children in addition to Nellie Higgins before they were married.

 

James Andrew Catron was born Sep 1862 in TN and died sometime after 1930. James Andrew Catron's parents were James Wilburn Catron, born circa 1833 in Scott Co., VA, and Jane Seals born circa 1836 in TN.

 

Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Taylor also lived in NE and KS at some point. James Catron and Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Taylor were later separated or divorced.

 

She lists a ÒGrandpa McAdamsÓ in her photo album, but we have found no evidence of where this family fits in. Possibly the McAdams are from the Higgins side.

 

My grandmother told me the Catrons went to CO to look for gold. In the census, James is listed as an electrician, as he is also in the Colorado Springs City Directory.

 

Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Taylor and James Catron's youngest child was my grandfather, Clyde Leroy Catron. Roy, as he was called, was born Sep 21, 1899, in Colorado Springs, El Paso Co., CO. He married Ada Susan Grace Rhodimer (they later divorced), and died Dec 14, 1953, in Phoenix, Maricopa Co., AZ. Ada Susan Grace Rhodimer was the daughter of Charles Bradner Rhodimer and Sarah Louisa (Weaver) Rhodimer. Roy and Grace are both buried in the Resthaven Cemetery in Phoenix, AZ.

 

Their only child was my mother, Mary Louise Catron, who married my father, Ira Frank Kelley, on Apr 1, 1938, in Phoenix, AZ. She was born Apr 13, 1922, in Los Angeles, CA, died Jan 16, 1970 in Phoenix, AZ. She is buried in Resthaven Cemetery in Phoenix, AZ.

 

Clyde Leroy (Roy) Catron's siblings, all born in Colorado except Nellie, include:

 

Nellie Higgins (half sister), born Mar 1884, in KS, married Charles Snyder, children Ella Snyder, G. Snyder, Pete Snyder, and Jackie Ralph Snyder, died Sep 11, 1913 in Colorado Springs, CO.

Maud Catron born Apr 1887.

 

John H. Catron, born May 1890 married Grace Collins Nov 24, 1916 in Colorado Springs, CO, moved to in Pueblo, CO in 1919.

 

Molly M. Catron, born May 1892 married Ora L. Jackson Nov 22, 1913, Colorado Springs, CO, resided in Florence, MO, died Jun 12, 1932, died Jun 12, 1932.

 

Jasper O. Catron, born May 1894 married Lena M. Gardner Jan 13, 1916 in Colorado Springs, CO., may have relocated to OR, had two children.

 

Florence (Flossie) L. Catron, born Apr, 1896 in CO, married Mr. Anderson, died May 25, 1926.

What Grandmas Are Made Of:

Return to top of page

 

(This was written by a 3rd grader whose name is unknown)

 

A grandmother is a lady who has no children of her own. She likes other people's little girls. A grandfather is a man grandmother. He goes for walks with the boys and they talk about fishing and tractors and like that.

 

Grandmas don't have to do anything except be there. They're old so they shouldn't play hard or run. It is enough if they drive us to the market where the pretend horse is and have lots of dimes ready.

 

Or if they take us for walks they should slow down past things like pretty leaves or caterpillars. They should never say "Hurry up". Usually they are fat but not too fat to tie your shoes. They wear glasses and funny underwear. They can take their teeth and gums off.

 

It is better if they don't typewrite or play cards except with us. They don't have to be smart, only answer questions like "Why don't dogs like cats" and "How come God isn't married"? They don't talk baby talk like visitors do because it is too hard to understand. When they read to us, they don't skip or mind if it is the same story again.

 

Everybody should try to have one especially if you don't have television because grandmas are the only grownups who have got time.

 

 

 

Red River Historical Society Court Records are for Sale

 

Court records from Powell Co are ready for sale. Each book contains information from court cases dated prior to 1900.

 

What else can you expect to find? For genealogists, the estate settlement often lists heirs, death dates, and relationships in families. For the historian, the book shows a way of life. Logging was a way of life. Citizens often moved a little over on his neighbor and cut a few logs. There is information about who cut the logs, moved logs, measured and paid. Lawsuits often involved the Railways in the county. A complete description of how the work was supposed to be done may be included in the lawsuit. Many other businesses are described.

 

Many cases are the results of selling cows, hogs and land. If depositions are included they usually give the person's age, place of residence, their occupation and their relation to the people or event that is in court. If John Doe owes Richard Roe a few dollars and he doesn't pay, both parties end up in the pages of the court records.

 

Court Records Volumes I, II, III, IV or V, are ready for sale today.

We initially became interested in family research because we were both adopted. So naturally, the name of the business was fashioned after our birth & adoptive names (K for Karow; A for ADAMSON; R for RUBIDOUX; D for DYE). We are excited about researching our past, but enjoy our Òcurrent genealogyÓ the most . . . namely Janice (born 1977), Jenifer (born 1980), and Jeffrey (born 1983).
