About: Seth Emory Washburn from IL but born abt 1846 NY to Thomas Daniel WASHBURN b MA and JOSLIN wife. Seth, a Union soldier, fathered a son Robert E. WASHBURN with Louisa Jane COIN (Coen) BOLIN during Civil War in/near Springfield MO or Christian Co, where Robert was born fall of 1864. Robert E. Washburn, a musician, composer, music teacher died Oct. 1910 St. Louis, MO with 3 children by 2nd wife Mary Elizabeth Cavanaugh, Ties to Springfield, Green Co MO where he married 1885 1st wife Annie Morman. She was granted divorce from Robert 1888 in Springfield MO. McLain and Agee lines: Charles McCLAIN d1846 Weakley Co TN, b 1780-85 in ?? Carolinas and wife Elizabeth UNKNOWN are parents of my ggg grandfather Charles McLain / McClain / McLean, b about 1804 TN or IL, married to Perlina Unknown, b about 1811, TN, with children born in TN: Christiana, David, John Henry and Esquire / Squire. My Weakley Co TN McCLAIN line (DNA tested and we match exactly on 67 markers) appears to have been in Adair Co KY, then Warren / White Co TN, prior to going to Gallatin Co IL and acquiring land 1817 in IL, then came to Henry Co / Weakley Co TN. My ggg grandparents the son Charles & Perlina migrated before 1850 into eastern AR and settled in Lawrence Co near present day Walnut Ridge where they had another son 11 yrs after Squire born--William California McLain, b 1853, Lawrence Co., ARK. The wife Perlina unknown died 1860 / Mortalitly Schedule. Question I have--did Charles go to California between 1850 and 1852 and had son William California, b1853, after trip? Just a thought due to odd middle name of his son, born 11 yrs. after Squire, b 1842, TN. And what is maiden name of Perlina Anna it FLETCHER, name of man (Wm H. FLETCHER) who mar 1859 Lawrence Co AR David W. McLAIN's widowed wife Susannah E. MULLINS. David was son of Charles the son of Charles. The son John Henry McLain married Sarah Catherine AGEE, b about 1842 TN--no parents for Sarah, but older Agee "family" William and Georgeanna / Leannah AGEE live near them in Lawrence Co., AR. Marriages to POINDEXTERs by 2 dtrs on the AGEE line. My McLain family in Lawrence Co. are on 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 census. Charles McLain b 1809 remarried Sarah Harmon Fry Riley in 1866 and he dies 1869 (record)-- and his estate administrator, son John Henry b 1837 TN, dies in 1880. Not sure what happened to John's wife, Sarah Catherine Agee, b 1842, TN--but I may have her photo in what appears to be about circa 1915-20, with a son William David McLain (my great grandfather) b1859 AR who died 1921 Newport, Jackson Co., AR.

Audrey Stanaland Where in Arkansas was this cemetery? I have a LINDSEY from SC or GA (b abt 1810-12) that mar a COOPER from SC. They died near Brinkley, Monroe Co AR after 1860. Some of the COOPER family is buried in Oak Lawn Cem in Brinkley. But I've not found my LINDSEY / LINDSAY line. Related lines include ANDREWS/ ANDERS, PULLIN, GILL, BRUMBLEY, HOUSE, HOLMAN, COOPER, and more including McLAINs that ended up in EAstern AR from at least 1845 on.

Audrey Stanaland I might have a clue. Could she have been born about 1853-54? Did she live in her later years in Oklahoma? If so, she could be Perlina / Polina / Pauline A. SMITH, a daughter of Christeny / Christiana McLAIN b abt 1830 in TN and James SMITH b about 1830 in KY, who made their home in Eastern AR, in Lawrence Co AR, town of WAlnut Ridge. The Polina / Perlina / Pauline Anna SMITH I am talking about married 1879 to a John Thomas TEWELL, but from the mid 1880s, they used the surname SMITH. Write me (connect the spaces) audstan @ and I'll tell you more of the story if you think there is a connection.

Audrey Stanaland Was this house in Arkansas, or perhaps TN, MO or KY? Please give us some history on your SMITH house and family background. My McLAIN / McCLAIN ggg aunt Christiana / Cristeny married a James SMITH b about 1830 KY and she was born abotu 1830 we are reasonably sure in TN along the KY border, but mar James SMITH about 1851 in Lawrence Co AR where her parents moved before 1850.

Audrey Stanaland I read the marriage records with interest, because my McLAIN line that came to Lawrence County AR before 1850 (via from early 1800s IL, KY and Weakley County TN) have a not-yet-understood-connection with families that lived in Daviees County and Martin County Indiana. MOSER / MOSIER, SHARUM (Shearum, etc), CISSEL (Cecil, Sisel, etc.) and TEWELL (TUEL, TUAL, etc) families were somehow allied with my McLAIN / McCLAIN line. My great grandfather married Cordelia MOSIER Oct. 1878 in Lawrence County IN after 'roaming' into IN he said in a little history bio in an AR book .. and brought Cordelia home from Loogootee, Daviess, IN to AR. Five months later, a cousin of his, Perlina Anna SMITH (her mother was Christiana McLAIN SMITH) married John Thomas TEWELL from Martin, IN. John Thomas TEWELL's mother was Delia Ann CISSELL ... a line from KY. In AR in 1883, a T.J. SHARUM came to live in Walnut Ridge. That winter he bagan buying some of the McLAIn and SMITH and TEWELL, as well as LINGO land (Nancy C. SMITH married E. Wesley LINGO) ....T. J. SHARUM's mother was Rosa Ann CISSELL from IN where Thomas J. SHARUM was from. TJ had a sister Eliza who had married a MOSIER in IN. These lines seem to have come to IN from KY ... where my McLAIN line also lived prior to about 1827, and where some McLAINs apparently remained, while others moved on. I have all these little tidbits of information, but so far in June 2006 have not been able to connect the dots. My line in Weakley Co TN was from Charles McLAIN and Elizabeth ? Unknown--both born about 1785 or so, perhaps in NC. Their son, Charles, born about 1805-09 prob. in IL is my ggg grandfather. His wife was Perlina / Pulina A. UNKNOWN b about 1811 TN. They appear in 1850 Lawrence Co,Strawberry twp, AR with children: Christiana b 1830ish TN, David W. b about 1833 TN, John H. (?Henry) b 1835-37 TN .. my gg grandfather; and Squire or Esquire born 1842 TN. In 1853 in AR they had a son Wm. California McLAIN. Christiana married 1851-52 to James SMITH, from KY. No marriage record found in Lawrence Co. David W. married Susan E. MULLENS/MULLINS 1855 AR, he died young and she remarried 1859 to Wm. E. FLETCHER in Lawrence Co., AR. John Henry married 1857 to Sarah Catherine AGEE b 1842 in East TN; Squire married Melinda Caroline HARDIN, and Wm. Cal. had several marriages ... to Ellen FRY, then perhaps her sister Martha FRY .. or an INGRAM marriage, then an L.T. BECK, and finally to Nancy Saphronia MEAD of Craighead Co, but she had GA family roots. Charles McLAIN sr died 1846 in Weakley Co., TN Charles McLAIN jr died 1869 in Lawrence Co., TN (but had remarried 1866 to Sarah HARMON FRY RILEY who was his widow when he died. His first wife Perlina A. died 1860 (Mortality Sched.) Christiana died between 1880 census and Dec. 25 1883. Her husband James SMITH of KY died 1870 (Mortality Schedule). Her daughter Perlina Anna SMITH TEWELL, used the SMITH surname, died in Kaw, OK. Her daughter Nancy C. SMITH LINGO disappeared .. no records found for her or E.Wesley LINGO or son James LINGO after Dec. 1883). Missing are Christiana's sons David W. SMITH who married I think to Arabella / R.Belle FRAZIER, John S. SMITH, James C. SMITH, and Charley A. SMITH. Squire McLAIN & wife Melinda Caroline HARDIN were still alive on the 1900 census, Lawrence Co, Lawrence twp, AR ...and below them was their son James D.? ( Drew ) McLAIN and a wife Lizzie, who also had a son they named James D. McLAIN. Squire also named a daughter Bernise / Bernice, and one Shrilda (Shrulda, Serilda). I think James Drew the son's son, died in Hot Springs, AR. Squire and wife Melinda Caroline HARDIN McLAIN must have both died before 1910 census. Wm. California lived for awhile in Craighead Co AR with wife Nancy Saphronia MEAD (her mother was a MOON), then moved around 1900 to Newport area, Jackson County, AR where he became a Rt. 1 mail carrier and died May 1912. He lived near my great grandfather William David McLAIN, b 1859 Lawrence Co., AR (son of John Henry and Sarah C. Agee McLAIN) Wm. Cal. and Nancy are buried in Walnut Grove Cem, Newport, Jackson Co., AR. Wm. David McLAIN's 1st wife Cordelia MOSIER died 1897 and is buried in Walnut Grove Cem, along with some other family members, including Cordelia's daughter Elizabeth "Lettie" McLAIN HOLDEN and her husband John Robert HOLDEN. Also there are children of Wm. David's 2nd wife (my great grandmother) Clara COOPER McLAIN. She was born 1878 in Monroe Co, AR to Dillard L. COOPER and Parthenia ANDREWS (Anders) HOUSE HOLLEMAN (Holman) COOPER. Clara sometimes used the name Clara D. McLAIN rather than Clara C. They married 1898 and had a large family in Newport, AR where Wm. David was a sawmill owner and land owner, and served 1914-1919 as Jackson County Judge. He was also in business with his son-in-law J.R. HOLDEN in the McLAIN-HOLDEN Land and Lumber Company. Wm. David McLAIN died Oct. 1921 and is buried in Walnut Grove Cem., Newport, AR. Clara COOPER McLAIN his wife lived to be almost 101 and died at the home of her son Alvin C. McLAIN in McNEIL / Magnolia AR in March 1979. She is buried in Little Rock, AR near her son Robert C. "Pat" McLAIN. According to a bit of family history recorded by a familyi member in the 1960s (he was born about 1899) he related info that the McLAIN family had come from the Isle of Mull in Scotland, talked about an Uncle Jimmy who went back to TN, family in KY, 7 original brothers who had come to America, a Wilbur and a "Tood" among them. "Tood" may have been called "Tobe" (like lobe) as that name is used at least twice in the line ...and a Court House Record in Walnut Ridge, Lawerence Co, AR names Tobe McLAIN in an 1879 record .. being held by the sheriff, with John Henry putting up the family land as bail for Tobe and a guarantee that he would, indeed, appear in court as required ... to be needed several times during some trial ...according to the record. STill need more info on this 'trial' as I'm not sure what was involved. Any info on this family will be appreciate. I may be contacted at (connect the spaces) audstan @

Audrey Stanaland I have a HOUSE line that was in Georgia in early to mid 1800s. Leiston (Liston), Lot, Dennis HOUSE are people I think were related to the 1st husband of my great great grandmother Parthenia ANDREWS born about 1834 in Wilkes, Lincoln twp GA. She and George N. (or M) HOUSE married 1851 and then 1855-56 migrated to eastern Arkansas (St. Francis / Monroe Counties) with her family. Allied families were PULLEN / PULLIN, HOUSE, ANDREWS, RICHARDSON, with these familes coming from the Carolinas to Georgia either in the late 1700s. I have long thought that George N. HOUSE born about 1831 in GA came from a line that was in Canada with spelling of the surname possibly HAUSE or HOWSE. The other lines were generally English or Scottish, so I do not think the HOUSE line tracked to Germany, but rather to the British Isles. ---Audrey in Tennessee

Audrey Stanaland Your story has a sort of similar mystery to a story I have been told ... a story that had its beginning on Christmas Day 1883 in Lawrence County Arkansas near Walnut Ridge. The story I was told by a descendant involves the LINGO surname, plus a shooting of a man named Lewis CISSEL (SISSEL or CECIL), a John Thomas TEWELL (TUELL or TULL), Charley SMITH(a son of Christiana McLAIN SMITH who was a daughter of my ggg grandfather Charles McLAIN, and another McLAIN son named Squire McLAIN (McLEAN, McCLAIN, etc) ... and Squire was married to Melinda HARDIN. Christiana McLAIN born about 1830 TN came to Lawrence County AR about 1847 with her parents (Charles McLAIN and wife Perlina UNKNONW) and her brother David McLAIN who married Susan E. MULLNS, her brother John Henry (my gg grandfather) who married Sarah Catherine AGEE, and her brother Squire born 1842 TN who married Melinda Caroline HARDIN. In about 1851 Christiana McLAIN (Christeny) married James SMITH who died 1870 in AR, leaving Christeny SMITH to raise their children Perlina Anna b 1853 (Polina Anna), David W. b1856, Charles A. b 1859, Nancy C. b 1862, James C. 1866 and John S. 1865. I haven't been able to track these SMITH children because they disappear after the 1880 census, but I do know that Nancy C. married an E. Wesley LINGO. The "E" could be for Edward, not sure. Nancy C. and husband Wesley LINGE (sic LINGO) and a child James LINGO were in the widow Christeny SMITH's 1880 household in Lawrence County Arkansas, as were some of the other SMITH chidren. I later learned that Perlina Anna (Polina) had married 1879 to John Thomas TEWELL from Indiana(TEWELL had a CISSEL mother, Delia Ann CISSEL)... and on the 1880 census, Polina SMITH TEWELL and her hsuband John Thomas were in Indiana. But Christmas 1883, they had either moved to AR or were visiting family over the holidays because the whole family had gathered for a dance in Lawrence County AR. At the dance, so goes to the story, a Lewis CISSEL got into an argument with John Thomas TEWELL over a horse. CISSEL pulled a gun on TEWELL, and Perlina Anna's brother Charley SMITH jumped in to defend his brother in law TEWELL and Charley shot and killed Lewis CISSEL, Dec. 25, 1883. Because Charley was apparently often in trouble and the family feared he would be strung up on the spot, the family decided that John Thomas TEWELL would take the blame for the shooting in his own defense. Unfortunately, TEWELL was jailed, had a trial (in early 1884) was convicted and sentenced to 15 years in jail. Before he could be moved to prison in Little Rock, 'the brothers (SMITH) / family busted TEWELL out of jail and they family went on the run the rest of their lives. And they changed their names. Perlina Anna and John Thomas TEWELL became Anna and John SMITH (using her maiden name) ... I'm not sure what name Charley used ... but the story I was told was that he felt responsible for Anna and her children the rest of his life. Also Nancy E. Smith LINGO and her husband E. Wesley LINGO may also have run for their lives. All I know is that seem to disappear. Copies of land transfers were sent to me. Perlina Anna SMITH and John Thomas TEWELL, and also Nancy Smith LINGO and her husband E. Wesley LINGO (as heirs of Christiana SMITH) sold their land in Arkansas on Dec. 29, 1883---4 days after the shooting---and Christiana's brother Squire McLAIN and wife Melinda Caroline HARDIN received the LINGO land. These land transfer papers were signed by an official who was likely related to Squire's wife---the sherrif named HARDIN. From what I've been told Polina Anna and her TEWELL husband using the SMITH surname always were on the move, picking up and moving in the middle of the night sometimes, living in Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, etc. but ended up their lives in Oklahoma where Polina Anna died and is buried in Kaw, OK. Did Nancy C. and husband E.(?Ed) Wesley LINGO also run for their lives?? And what happened to Charley SMITH? Did they use their own names (I doubt it) and if not what were they called? Did Charley ever marry? A son of Perlina Anna Smith TEWELLs and husband John Thomas finally told the whole story to his grandchildren before he died and told them their name wasn't really SMITH, but was instead TEWELL. However, other descendants may not have ever been told the story. I'm interested to hear from you ... if you see anything here that makes you think it is possible that your mystery and my mystery have any common threads.----Audrey in Tennessee

Audrey Stanaland I opened this HOLDEN link because my mother's Arkansas McLAIN line in Newport, Jackson Co, AR had a HOLDEN marriage in the early 1900s, but I was surprised to see the STANLAND surname! My husband is STANALAND, with family lines from North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and on to East Texas ... where the STANALANDs came in the 1800s, around Nacogdoches and Angelina counties. I'm curious to know where your HOLDEN and STANLAND family lived. ---Audrey in Tennesse

Audrey Stanaland I notice the MR/Mrs Fanny Karnes photo was taken in Springfield, Illinois. I have a 'possible' KARNES ancestor, may be CORN, on my WASHBURN line that was apparently in Illinois, and I know in Springfield, Missouri. A Lulu (Lucy or Louisa,etc) CORN was shown on 1910 St. Louis MO death certificate for Robert E. WASHBURN b 1865 Springfield, MO. Father unknown to the wife, but mother written down a Lulu CORN. I am reasonably sure I have them on 1870 Springfield MO Campbell twp census as Louisa WASHBURN with 5yr old Robert in household of Martha KING and a GASAWAY son. Louisa and son are from MO, Martha KING tracked to IL family .. but there is likely some relationship. This family and my WASHBURN are my brick wall. I will say that the timeframe for the type of matting on the photo matches with similar WASHBURN photos I have from St. Louis--taken from about 1890s to 1910 or so. Other surnames on this line are CAVANAUGH and STILLMAN. If you see anything fammilar, please let me know.
