This is a story about a very old and well established Van Bibber family that originated from West Virginia/Pennsylvania to the Yukon Territory in Canada. Two brothers, one named Ira, traveled to the Yukon near the Gold rush era of 1998. Ira's brother remained in the Yukon for a short time then traveled further into Alaska. He lived in Fairbanks and the rest of his journey is unknown to us. Ira married and small native women in the Yukon and raised fifteen children. His family is the largest in the Yukon and are now spread throughout the Yukon Territory, British Columbia and Alberta. Ira,s wife Eliza Van Bibber lived to be 103 years old meeting great great grandchildren and always wore a smile. The Yukon archives created a large collection of the Van Bibber family and most notably the large group of sons were adventurous and lively receiving awards for military, competitive trophies, Orders of Canada...the legacy is endless. Many of their children now 80 and 90 years old are still with us today.
SOURCE: A Chronicle of the SEE family and their Kindred

The brothers, George, Michael and John See left records which prove that each took part in the defense of their country against both the Indians and the English and helped to establish American independence.

Frederick See (1712-1763) was the oldest son of George and Margaret Judy See.
He married Catherine, the daughter, perhaps of Abraham Vanderpool who came to Pennsylvania in 1738. At that time the Sees were still in Bucks County. They were the parents of six children: Lois, George, Michael, Catherine, Elizabeth and John.
MICHAEL SEE JR. (1751-1792) SON OF FREDERICK SEE
married Elizabeth Morris in 1776. She was the daughter of William Morris, pioneer of Kanawha, who settled about twenty miles above the present site of Charleston, West Virginia. Elizabeth, born August 8, 1753. It has been stated that Michael See's widow married Captain John Van Bibber, commissary at Fort Randolph.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GEORGE SEE (1749-1854) SON OF FREDERICK SEE
The lives of the two brothers George and Michael See ran parallel. Together they had experienced the massacre on Muddy Creek, Indian captivity, participated in the battle of Point Pleasant, served under Captain Arbuckle in border warfare, established their homes in Greenbrier and later both moved on down the Kanawha Valley.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Michael See (1730)

JOHN SEE'S PETITION FOR PENSION:

Henry County September term 1832

On this 29th of September in the year 1832 appeared before the Honorable Henry Circuit Court (it being a court of record) in the State of Indiana, John See aged 75 years who being duly sworn according to law deposeth and doth upon his oath make the following declaration in or on/ac to obtain the benefits of the provisions of the act of the 7th of June 1832: That he enlisted in the army of the United States in the year 1776 under Captain Arbuckle in Greenbrier County Virginia for the term of one year for the purpose of defending the western frontier of Virginia from the incursions of the hostile Indians.

He was then marched to the mouth of the Kenhawa where they remained for nearly twelve months and in the meantime they erected a fort at the mouth of the said Kenhaway and was discharged in September 1777 having served one year.

That he thinks it was in the year 1779 he enlisted in the Army of the United States for the term of three years in Bottetourt County Virginia under Captain Lapsely in the 12th Virginia Regiment in General Scott's Brigade, from thence he joined the main army at a place called West Camps in Pennsylvania under the command of General Washington. We then went into winter camp at Valley Forge, at this time your applicant was under the command of Captain Breckenridge, from Valley Forge the main army was marched to Monmouth, New Jersy, where a battle was fought where your applicant engaged with the rest of the army. The army was then marched to White Plains, they re turned to New Jersy and went into winter quarters in Middleboro. During the next winter the army encamped on the North River and your applicant was discharged the next Spring at Camden, South Carolina, having served three years. During this service he was in the battle of Monmouth under General Washington at Stony Point, General Wayne and in Germantown under General Washington and the aforesaid John See, the applicant, relinquished every claim whatsoever to a pension or annuity except the present and he declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any agency in any state or territory in the United States.

Sworn and subscribed in open court this 29th day of Sept. A.D. 1832.

And the said court do hereby declare their opinion that the above named applicant was a Revolutionary Soldier and served as he stated.

I, John Elliott Clerk of the Court of Henry County do hereby certify that the foregoing contains the original proceedings of said Court in the matter of the application of John See for a pension.

SEAL In testimoney whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal of this office this 29th day of September A.D. 1832

Witness John Elliott, Clerk

Further record shows that John See's name was inscribed on the roll of Indiana at a rate eighty dollars per annum to commence on the 4th day of March 1834 when he received arrears and semi-annual allowance to the amount of two hundred dollars.

Evidently John See's memory at 75 was not so reliable as it was earlier. He surely enlisted in 1777 rather than 1779 for the battle of Germantown was fought October 4th, 1777, and General Washington made winter quarters at Valley Forge December 1777.

From his declarations, John See is shown to be one of the sturdy, rugged soldiers who endured all of the hardship, privation, and suffering that dogged the colonial army through the entire war. John See trudged from the mouth of the Kanawha to White Plains, New York and ended his service after a torturous march through the swampland of the south at Camden, South Carolina; the infantry traveled on foot and usually made their way home from point of discharge as best they could.

We are glad to find this record of compensation for his endurance and valor, found in Virginia Military Patent Records Vo. 10, page 206, December 1797. Warrant No. 4833 for 100 acres, land issued to him in consideration for his services for three years as a private in the Virginia Continental Line in the Revolution.

From a book called War 4, page 352, Virginia State Library is another record: John

See's balance of full pay as a sergeant of infantry in the Virginia Line Continental Establishment, amounting to £58-18s 3d. was delivered to George Clendenen.

John See and Margaret, his wife, were residing in Kanawha County in 1809 for they executed many deeds to lands in the county. The U.S. census 1810, Kanawha County lists the John See family of thirteen members, six boys and five girls, two were over 26 years of age and two under ten years.

Other Kanawha County records include: John See sworn in as grand juror January 6, 1795; August 1, 1796, appointed overseer of the road; however, he seemed derelict in civic duty and was indicted for failure to keep roads in repair March 6, 1797; April l4, 1803, John See was named an appraiser of estate of William Morris.

OTHER SEES WHO SERVED THEIR COUNTRY:

WILLIAM SEE (1792-AFTER 1844), SON OF MICHAEL SEE, JR.
Records in the Adjutant General's Office, War Department, show "that William See served as a private in the War of 1812 in a company of infantry commanded at various times by Lieutenant and Captain Andrew Bryan and Lieutenant Moses McClintic, 2nd Regiment (Evans) Virginia Militia." His service commenced September 21, 1812 and ended March 20, 1813. This company was from Mason County.

MICHAEL SEE III (1785-1827), SON OF MICHAEL SEE, JR.
In 1815 Michael enlisted at Point Pleasant in the Virginia volunteers and served as Captain of his own company known as Captain Michael See's Company, 106th Regular Virginia Militia. His service commenced February l8, 1815 and ended March 8, 1815. (From War Department, Adjutant General's Office). He was sent to Norfolk, Virginia, and returned home after an absence of one month in consequence of peace having been declared.

Under an Act of March 3, 1855, entitled "An Act in addition to certain Acts granting Bounty Land to certain Officers and Soldiers who have been engaged in The Military Services of the United States"; Nancy See, widow of Michael See, Captain Virginia Militia, War 1812, received a grant #95,89O for 120 acres issued December 28, l859.

During the Civil War, the See family, as their origin suggests, was sympathetic to the South, but two grandsons, Charles Michael See, 40th Illinois Volunteer Infantry and Vernal Prewett, 111th Illinois Volunteer Infantry, were with Sherman on his 'march to the sea.' Vernal was captured at the siege of Atlanta and spent nine months in Andersonville Prison. Decades later in World War I 1917, numerous great grandsons fought for their country, for which two, George Herman Anna and Hobart Harrell See made the "supreme sacrifice."
Several of our VAN BIBBER ancestors fought and died in the BATTLE OF BLUE LICKS so when I found this article I decided to include it here to give the reader some idea of how and why it happened. HUGH MCGARY LATER MARRIED A VAN BIBBER and NATHAN the Son of DANIEL BOONE married OLIVE VAN BIBBER.

The Battle of Blue Licks happened on August 19, 1782; ten months after Cornwallis had surrendered at Yorktown. This bloody frontier encounter is usually noted as the last combat of any size of the Revolutionary War. It took place near a salt spring along the Licking River in Central Kentucky north of Boonesborough and Bryan's Station. It was the most successful part of the invasion of an almost 1000 strong combined army of Ohio Indian Nations warriors, British Regulars and Queen's Rangers into Kentucky and West Virginia.

On August 2nd, one of the largest congresses of the Ohio Indian nations confederation was held at the principal Shawnee town of Chalahgawtha, then on the Little Miami River. Present were contingents from all the Ohio nations. Simon Girty, one of the principle organizers of the congress, learned that a group of 50 redcoats under Capt. William Caldwell in company with Iroquois and Mingoes led by the Mohawk leader Joseph Brant and the Tory Alexander McKee were headed south from Detroit to attack Wheeling. After riding long and hard to intercept them, he persuaded them to join the gathering at Chalahgawtha. There, speaking before a council of all participants, he outlined a plan that led to the frontier people south of the Ohio's worst defeat in their long war with the Ohio Indians--the Battle of Blue Licks.

The plan was to draw the Kentucky Militia into an ambush. The Indian and British force would invade; their immediate targets would be Bryan's Station and Lexington, just six miles apart in Central Kentucky. The Americans under Williamson were back at their more easterly settlements in Pennsylvania and Wheeling and they were alert to danger, he argued. Thus, he continued, an invasion would have more success attacking in Central Kentucky where it would not be expected.

Half or more of the expeditionary force would hide at Blue Licks, he proposed, while the remainder would proceed on to attack Bryan's Station, which Girty knew to be weak and undersupplied. They would watch the station until a few people were outside the fortification, and then they would attack, allowing the few outside the walls to escape knowing that they would run straight to Lexington for help; Lexington was strongly manned and provisioned.

No one doubted that Lexington would send out a rescue force; The rescuers would be who the Indians would really be after. The Indians' spies would know the rescue force's size as soon as it began to move toward Bryan's Station; if it was small enough, they would simply waylay the Kentuckians en route. If the Kentuckians were too many, the Indians would retreat making sure that the Kentuckians followed closely so as to lead them back to Blue Licks where the much larger remaining Indian force would lay in ambush. The value in the plan, Girty emphasized, was that when the Kentuckians saw as large a force of Indians as the Bryan's Station attackers would be, and seeing in addition that they had British soldiers with them, none would never believe that there could be as many more waiting in ambush.

The expedition was mounted. Half the invading force hid itself at Blue Licks and the remainder went on to lay siege to Bryan's Station, being careful to allow a few to escape and run to Lexington for help. The first rescue force was fifty men strong; it was quickly beaten off by the invaders. The Indians did not bother to use their ambush strategy; not enough attackers; they were after bigger game.

Next day 180 Kentuckians converged on the place only to find the Indians gone. This militia force was composed of several groups from neighboring counties and stations and, as was the usual case, the leadership consisted of the various militia leaders working more or less in cooperation with each other. Daniel Boone was leader of 45 Fayette County militia under the general leadership of John Todd, an upper class lawyer from Virginia who had served in the Vincennes campaign with Clark. The other major contingent was from Lincoln County and under the leadership of Stephen Trigg who was assisted by Hugh McGary of Harrodsburg.

The officers immediately held council to decide whether they should pursue the retreating Indians immediately or wait for Colonel Benjamin Logan, who they knew to be about a day behind them travelling in their direction with a force of several hundred. McGary was mentally unstable. He had lost family to Indian attack five years earlier and, since then, had become increasingly hostile and combative to virtually all who had to deal with him. All the same, he urged caution and spoke for waiting for Logan to catch up with them. Todd criticized McGary as being "timid" and stated that they could not afford to let the Indians get away. Finally, they decided to take up the chase the following morning. McGary, insulted by Todd's comments, nonetheless held his tongue for the time being.

Next day the Americans followed the Indian army's trail to within a few miles of the Lower Blue Licks. Boone grew increasingly upset with what he was seeing; the Indians were making no effort to conceal their passage; in fact, they were doing everything they could to make their trail easy to follow. They littered the trace with their garbage, they cut blazes on trees where they passed; Boone also saw evidence that they were walking in each other's tracks so as to conceal their actual numbers. He saw ambush in everything the Indians were doing.

Early the next morning, August 19, 1782, a Monday, the Americans arrived at the south bank of the Licking River near the Blue Licks salt springs. The river makes a sharp loop here around a bare, rocky hill on the side opposite the Americans. The Indian army lay hidden in a series of wooded ravines at the crest of the hill. As the Americans assembled on their side of the river a group of warriors appeared in plain view on the hilltop. They were the decoy.

Todd and Trigg called another officers' council; about fifteen men were there in all. Included were Boone and McCary.

Boone urged caution; he pointed out all the things he had observed. "They intend to fight," he said. McCary grew angry and defiant. "Them that ain't cowards follow me," he shouted leading a general charge across the river directly into the ambush and hand-to-hand battle that followed. The result was disaster for the Kentuckians and resounding victory for the Ohio Indian/British force. Seventy-two Kentuckians were killed in that fight; more than a third of their force. The Indians and British lost only three men and four more were slightly wounded. This defeat marked the lowest point in the Americans' fortunes in the struggle for possession of the West.

This summary file was written by Mike Shaver - Summer 1998 following Crye genealogical gatherings in La Cross, Wisconsin.

Family legend and records from the family Bible of Richard and Edney Davis tell of Willaim Davis being captured by indians when he was a small boy. His parents were allegedly killed and he was taken by the indians to live in a Shawnee village on the Sandusky Plains (Ohio?). It is also recorded that he witnessed his uncle being tied to a tree and burned to death. Researcher Judy Hopkins believes that the incident could have been the "Massacre at Muddy Creek" in 1763 in the vicinity of what is now Monroe County, West Viginia. William was subsequently adopted by an indian woman who had lost a child about his own age. He reportedly lived with the Shawnee until his early twenties when he learned that he had a brother still living and went to find him in the "White Man's Settlement". His brother was not present when he arrived but the settlers, knowing the story of his capture, tricked him into staying by having another man impersonate his brother temporarily. The following day when his real brother arrived, William denounced all white men as liars and decievers and returned to the indians. But at a later date he reportedly returned to his brother's cabin where he stayed. Family lore handed down over the years recounts numerous versions of how William's indian step mother would often leave token gifts for him at the edge of the woods near his cabin - but would never venture up to his dwelling.


In a Court Order Book dated 11 March, 1777 from Greenbrier/Botetourt Co. Virginia: The Commonwealth versus Willaim Davis and John VanBibber. The defendants were arraigned for Disloyalty. VanBibber's case was dismissed, but Davis was held bound to the Court, because he knew how to make gun powder and had signified his intention of going back among the indians with whom he had lived for twenty years. As a result he was not allowed to leave The Commonwealth for one year. Reference to this case is also found in a book called "Kegley's Virginia Frontier".


The Bible record of Edney Thomas Davis states that William married Mary (Molly) Packwood in 1777, but there is no official record to confirm this since all marriage records in that area prior to 1780 were destroyed or obliterated. Molly's parents are unknown but it is believed that she was related to the Packwoods of Patrick County, Viginia. William is listed as a member of the Greenbrier Baptist Church and is recorded as having been recieved as a member "by experience" in 1803.


William was subsequently very active in the affairs of Greenbrier and that part which would eventually become Monroe County, W/VA. He is mentioned often in county records with other early settlers such as George Dixon, the VanBibbers, and the Ellisons. John VanBibber built a powder mill where William apparently learned to make gun powder. The VanBibbers and the Dixons were also involved in the founding of Point Pleasant on the Ohio River, but there is no record of William's participation in this venture. He is identified as the owner of 108 acres near the Greenbrier River in 1781 by the Index of West Virginia Land Grants. On 1 May 1794 it is recorded that William and Mary Davis were involved with Frederick and Clara Stoner in the sale of land totaling 318 acres to James Graham. Clearly many of the records of his land dealings have been lost since he disposed of considerably more acreage in his will.


Records of Greenbrier County list William Davis as a "taxable resident" from 1786 to 1792. He is listed on the personal property tax list of Monroe County from 1799 (when it was formed from part of Greenbrier County) until 1815. Following his name listing on each annual record is the name "Richard Davis" and this is believed to be his brother since they appear to be contemporaries in age and also shared adjoining parcels of land on the Greenbrier River. Mary Davis and her son Jacob are listed on the 1815 Tax List but conspicuously absent is the name of William who is presumed to have died during this period.


In his will dated 28 Feb., 1815 William requested that he "be buried in a neat Christian manner and that all his lawful debts be discharged". He left half of his land to his wife Mary and the other half to his daughter Editha. To his son Jacob he gave his rifle and all his working tools. Witnesses included Harry Perry, James Perry and Isaac Busby.



Children of WILLIAM DAVIS and MARY PACKWOOD are:


2. i. JACOB2 DAVIS, b. Abt. 1780, Greenbrier/Monroe Co., West Virginia; d. Bef. 1850, Madison Co., Indiana.

ii. EDITHA DAVIS, b. Abt. 1785, Greenbrier/Monroe County, West Virgina.

3. iii. RACHEL DAVIS, b. Abt. 1790, Greenbrier County, West Virginia; d. 1812, Monroe Co., Virginia.

JACOB DAVIS: 2ND. GENERATION

JACOB2 DAVIS (WILLIAM1)3,4 was born Abt. 1780 in Greenbrier/Monroe Co., West Virginia, and died Bef. 1850 in Madison Co., Indiana. He married EUNICE O. DIXON5 January 25, 1806 in Monroe County, West Virginia6, daughter of GEORGE DIXON and VERONICA VANBIBBER.

Notes for JACOB DAVIS:

1806 - Coincident with his marriage there, Jacob Davis was received into the Old Greenbrier First Baptist Church.

1810- In the census for that year Jacob is recorded as living with his wife and 3 sons on land adjoining that of his father William and uncle Richard Davis. He remained here just after the death his father in 1815. At this time he sold all his land and departed the area enroute to Indiana.

Obituary of William T. Davis (son of Jacob) stated that Jacob, with his family, floated down the Ohio River on a flatboat to Cinncinnati, Ohio in the spring of 1815. Their boat was loaded with salt and whetstones (a much prized and valuable commodity at the time). That same year they continued down the river to the town of Madison, Indiana where they landed and made their first home about four miles below Paris in a portion of Jefferson County, Indiana which later became Jennings County. In 1816 William recieved land patent to 360 acres (two parcels) located nea the Graham Fork of the Muscatuck River in Jefferson County. After this they lived 5 years on what is known as Hester Island. Then they moved to Azelia in Bartholomew County. (From Banner Plain Dealer, North Vernon, Jennings Co. Indiana].

1820 - Census of that year enumerates Jacob and his family (w/mother Mary) in Delaware County (later became Bartholomew Co.). He also purchased land near Azelia area, T8, R 6, Sect. 35. William Packwood (possibly his maternal grandfather or an uncle) bought land the same day, Aug. 20th 1820, right next door. (NOTE: There were several other brothers of William Packwood who settled in this same area).

1830 - Jacob and family still listed as residents of Bartholomew County now living with 10 children.

1834 - Jacob sold land in Bartholmew Co. and that same year bought land on the Grant/Madison Co. line. He is identified in the histories of both counties as a prominent early settler. He resided in Fairmount Township and the history of that community includes various references to Jacob Davis including an incident in which he helped pursue and kill a record size bear.

1837 - Jacob sold his land in Fairmount to his son Joseph and moved to the Town of Summit where they purchased and lived on a small lot. He is recorded still living here during the 1840 census but apparently died before 1850 when he is absent from that count. In the period following his death (between 1850 and 1860) many members of his family who had previously resided in the counties south of Indianapolis apparently sold out and departed, some to Iowa, some to Wisconsin and others to parts unknown.

Notes for ANDREW J. DAVIS:

There is no substantiated direct documentation establishing the paternity of Andrew Davis. However, descendant Judy Hopkins has concluded that he was the son of Jacob and Eunice Davis on the basis of substantial and convincing circumstantial evidence.

Andrew served honorably in the Union Army as a Private during the Civil War. He enlisted at Fontanelle, Iowa in a Company commanded by Capt. L. H. Calan, in the 4th Cavalry Regiment of the Iowa Volunteers on 21 Dec., 1863. The Regiment was commanded by Colonel Winslow. Andrew was honorably discharged for disability at Davenport Iowa on 22 August, 1865. He sustained an injury to his spinal chord that disabled him from performing and bodily labor for the remainder of his life.

State of Indiana, Ripley County

On this 11th day of November in the year of our Lord 1833 personally appeared in open Court before the Honorable Henry B. Hinkle[?] judge for the Ripley county Probate Court now sitting Peter Van Bibber a resident of the County of Ripley aged sixty six years who being first duly sworn according to Law doth on this oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of Congress passed June the 7th 1832- He entered the service of the united States under the following named officers and servd herein stated. In the month of October 1775 he entered the service as a volunteer and servd under Co., James Henderson, Major Thomas Quirk, and Capt. Mathew Arbuckle (the rest of the company officers he has forgotten). He left the service in the month of June 1777 after serving faithfully the most part of this time as an Indian spy for one year and eight months. He then afterwards in the month of November 1780 entered the service as a substitute for one John Dixon and servd for Ten months more under Col. Luke Boyer (Majs name forgotten/ Captn James Grimes Lient John Hall and Ensign Samuel Campbell. He left the service in the month of September 1781 same year after serving faithfully for two months which added to his other term of eighteen months makes two years and four months. He then in the month of July 1782 was drafted for six months (and served five months only under Col. Luke Boyer, Major Thomas Quirk Captain James Grimes, Lient Montgommory and Ensign Armstrong- He left the service in the month of December same year after serving faithfully for five months when he was discharged by Col. Boyer. This time and last tour added to his other term of eighteen months makes Two years and nine months for which services he claims a Pension. He resided at the time he entered the service and during the war in Greenbriar Co. Va. The first tour of eighteen months he volunteered, the 2d term of 10 months he served as a substitute, and the 3d and last tour of five months he was drafted- He was at the Battle of Point Pleasant with the Indians where Co. Lewis and a gentleman by the name of Fields were killed- He was also at the Battle of Donley=s fort and at the Surrender of Lord Cornwallis on the 15 [19] October 1781 During his 1st term he marched from Donley=s station to Point Pleasant where he continued garrisoned for one year and Eight Months except occasionally he was out on a scouting expedition, and in fact looked upon as one serving in that capacity throughout all the surrounding country- at one time he was out for three weeks constantly with one Leonard Cooper and William Morris- traversing the forests for the purpose of watching the movements of the Indians who were prowling about that region of the Country- during this three weeks scout he marched form Donley=s Station to Point pleasant from thence to Patallico Creek from thence he went to Elk River, from thence he crossed over to little glade [?], form thence to Muddy Creek, from thence to John Keeney=s Fort, from thence to Grimes= Fort, from thence back to Donley=s station where he remained until he was discharged- During this seasons tour he marched form Grimes station to Bottertout town, in Bottertour county and from thence to Roanoak to Neelys [?] Mills, from thence to a town the name of which he has forgotten, from thence he marched directly to York town where he remained and was at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis. He was then discharged. During this second tour he served also for some time at Grims station Sandys [?] station and at Pitticords station before he marched as he has just stated. During his 3d and last tour he marched from Grims station (where he had also remained for some time) to Fort Chissel- from thence he was sent with a express through the wilderness to General Clark at Fort Pitt and when he was returning back to Grim=s station he met his Major with some other officers who told him that the fighting was over and that he was discharged. This accounts for his leaving the service one month before the time was up for which he was drafted- This was in the month of December 1782. He was acquainted with Genl Washington, Genl Lee, Genl Lockhard, Co. Luke Boyer and many others. He does not now remember any Continental Regiments of Companies by name who served with the troops but is confident that there were many Regulars served part of the time with him.

County of Callaway on this twentyeth day of May in the year eighteen hundred and thirty three personally came and appeared in open court before the County Court of Callaway County aforesaid now Sitting. James Van Bibber a resident of Nine Mile prarie Township in the County of Callaway aforesaid in the state of Mifouri aged Sixty six years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the following declaration, in order to obtain the beniefit of the Act of Congress dated June 7, 1832 - that he was born in he believes Halifax County Virginia, and before he can recollect removed with his father to a settlement in the Same State on Greenbriar River about one hundred and eighty miles from the mouth of the great Kanawa that he remained there for many years, that whilst he was living there he thinks in '81 the Shawnees and Mingo's having proposed to Col Thomas Lewis who commanded at the Mouth of the Kanawa to go over to Scioto Salt licks and meet them there in order to treat of peace, Col Lewis having accepted the proposal was proceeding thither with Several of his men where they were attacked by a party of the same tribes of indians at a place called Raccon Creek west of the Ohio and several of his men were Killed and himself taken prisoner, those who succeded in escaping having reported the capture of Col Lewis as soon as it was Known at the Settlements on Greenbriar a party of volunteer militia was raised in which this applicant was enrolled which under the Command of Captain John Vanbibber marched with the intention of rescuing Col Lewis who had Succeded whilst a prosoner in making a sort of treaty with his captors and the ballance of their tribe by who he had been released, the company after a considerable absence finding the object of their expedition obviated returned to greenbriar - this was in the year '81 - and it was probably some two years after this, the same tribes having again broken out into hostilities against the whites, this applicant together with the family having moved down to the Mouth of Kanawa he together with one of this cousins one day went out in Search of horses which were belled and hobbled at some distance from their habitation after searching for some time in the woods they heard the bells and going in the direction of the sound they supposed they had marched within ten paces of their horses when they sere fired upon by two indians and a french man in the guise of an inidan, who had found their horses and having taken off the hobbles and bells rang the bells in order to decoy whomsoever might go out in Search of the horses - the cousin of the appplicant was immediately killed but he himself having been missed succeded in making his escape to the fort.

In October '85 two of the brothers of this appplicant having gone out from the fort for the purpose of bringing in a bear that had been Killed were fired upon by the Indians, one of whom was left for dead and the other taken prisoner by the indians who after remaining in captivity abaout 11 months Succeded in making his escape and got into the Settlement -

The Country about the Mouth of the Kanawa being exposed to continual incurssions of the indians it became necessary to establish a regular System of defence which would protect the inhabitants from surprise and enable them to attend to the cultivation of their fields with some degree of security Accordingly a Company of the militia was ordered to be raised to be Kept in Service as rangers, scouts, spies. & during all that part of the year which is favorable to Indian Inroads Captain Leonard Cooper commanded that company and this applicant entered it as a volunteer at first when the company commenced operations in February '87 and was continually engaged in active, dangerous, and hard service until the following autumn about the last of November In this company my brother was a Liutenant and I was ensign - in the following Spring '88 I entered as a volunteer in the company commanded by Capt. Hugh Caperton - James Kelly Lieut ensign not reollected - we were out again in February and continued scouting, and occasionally skirmishing with the Indians until in Nov. of the same year - we were engaged all the time in active service affording protection to the Settlements and persuing when necefsary band of depredating indians - The following year '89 I again went out as a volunteer in the same service under the command of Capt. Moses Mann James Van Bibber & Lieut Morrice Reynolds Ensign and continued in it from February until November - I cannot say what was the number of days or months I served in there those campaigns but I very well recollect that I was paid by the genl govt. as I supposed, for 27 months service and therefore believe I must have served that length of time - If I ever rec'd a discharge in writing I have forgotten it - Col Lewis who resided at the Mouth of the Kanawa and had the Military Command of those Settlements was the only general officer with whom I was at all acquainted, the three companies in which I served were all subject to his orders.

I was born in the year 1766 on the 8th of May but have no record of my age

I am known to several persons as having seved as I mention, my Cousin Isaac Vanbibber who I expected to see here to day knows it perfectly well and Thomas Harrison Senr. Who is here present either knows it of his own knowledge or has had such undoubted evidence from the statements of other as is tantamount to actual knowledge - I am known to many other persons in ths county for I have lived here many years and have served as a spy in this country during the last war under the command of Genl Howard -

I have never before applied for a pension nor is my name on the pension roll of the agency of any State or of the United States - and I do hereby renounce all claim to pay or pension for revolutionary services except what may be granted me under the law of 7th of June Last -

I am well known to William Coates who has been a preacher of the gospel for many years in the country - I left Kentucky in 1803 and came to this country and have lived for the last fifteen years in this county - I am also well known to old Mr. Litton who is here present - I had a commission as ensign in one of the campaigns I have mentioned signed by a governor of Virginia but I have examined my papers for it and can not find it now - I suppose it is lost - I think it was in '95 that I removed from the mouth of Kanawa to Kentucky.

Baptist Faith predominated.

Moses Haney was a farmer and word has it that great great or great grandmother
Haney did, or could have, supplied the poplar timbers of great bulk for the
new First Baptist Church at Fifth and Vernon street. One salvaged timber is
the fireplace mantel at the Haney Cabin at Lawco Lake.

The Haney lineage is vague. Through Reverend John Lee a direct link is
established to General Robert E. Lee and Light Horse Harry Lee.

FROM: THE ANTI-SLAVERY MOVEMENT IN MARION COUNTY

The most intense and celebrated trial that ever took place in Marion County was one involving the liberty of Black Bill, alias Mitchell, alias Anderson, an alleged slave. Black Bill, as he was commonly called, came to Marion in the fall of 1838, and by his industry as a butcher, barber and laborer, and by his ability to play the fiddle and banjo and "call" at dances, soon made himself indispensable in the thriving little village.

About the middle of July, 1839, a party of eight citizens from Kanawha Court House, Kanawha County, Virginia, appeared in Marion and claimed Black Bill as the runaway slave of Adnah Van Bibber, of Kanawha, alleging that he had escaped about two years before. He was arrested under an Ohio statute as a "fugitive from service or labor" on a warrant issued by John Bartram, a justice of the peace, and when brought before Hon. Ozias Bowen, presiding judge of the Common Pleas Court, was committed to jail to await trial at the August term of court. Of course the proceedings soon became the talk of the town and Black Bill, who called himself a "free n*****," had many sympathizers, who thought that he was unjustly accused.

The case came on for trial on August 26, 1839 before Ozias Bowen, presiding judge, and Thomas J. Anderson and George Gray, associate judges. The court-room of the old Court House was crowded to overflowing, the excited crowd filling all the halls, staircases and adjoining rooms. Adnah Van Bibber, the claimant, Robert W. McClanahan, his agent, William F. Goshorn, Robert Anderson, Mr. Smith, Mr. Kline, Mr. Bowers and Mr. Lawrence, all Virginians, came to Marion as witnesses against Black Bill and to assist Van Bibber to recover the negro These slave hunters, as they were called, came fully armed with bowie-knives and pistols which they brandished and flourished in a threatening way, to intimidate the friends of Black Bill.

The title of the ease was "Adnah Van Bibber vs. Mitchell (a colored man)." The plaintiff was represented by Gen. George Rowe of the Marion bar, who was a bold and forceful speaker. Black Bill was defended by two young members of the Marion bar, Cooper K. Watson, then prosecutor and afterward Congressman, and James H. Godman, an attorney of unusual ability. Most of the witnesses were against Black Bill, and the negro under the laws, was not permitted to testify even in his own cause. The trial was not long, and after the eloquent appeal of the attorneys the court at the close of the day's session, reserved its decision until the following day.

Charles Sweetser, a prominent attorney from Delaware, Ohio, arrived in Marion in the evening of August 26th for the purpose of attending the regular term of the Common Pleas Court, which convened the next day. He stopped at the same tavern where the Virginians had taken lodgings, and was soon after retained to assist General Rowe in the further conduct of the case.

The following editorial from the Marion Visitor a newspapers published in Marion at the time, recites as an eye witness the events of the eventful 27th day of August, 1839:--

Tuesday evening last (August 27th) presented a scene of confusion and excitement never before witnessed in our peaceful village. It appears (as our readers will discover below) that a negro well known to our citizens by the name of Bill, was some time since taken up as a runaway slave from Virginia, and lodged in the jail of this county for trial. On Monday, the day set for his trial, we discovered an unusual number of persons assembled to hear the result. The house was crowded to overflowing. The witnesses were examined, whose testimony will be found below, and counsel heard. The judge however reserved his decision (written opinion) till the following morning. A great mass of people assembled. At 10 o'clock A. M., the court was called (the house was literally crowded) to hear the decision of the judge which occupied at least 40 minutes in delivering, during which the greatest order prevailed, but as soon as the Hon. O. Bowen had finished, by declaring the prisoner free, all was confusion, riot and disorder. As soon as the decision was ended, the pretended owners seized the prisoner; the bystanders resisted, and endeavored to rescue him, declaring him to be free, and desiring them to let him run at large. But the Virginians still maintained their possession by force, and presented pistols, bowie-knives, dirks, etc., threatening the lives of all those who would lay hands on them, or the negro--and all this in open court. Our citizens, and friends from the country, stood out in defense of their trampled and insulted laws, which were thus set at defiance.

"In this scene of confusion, taken down stairs, and dragged by his captors through the streets. Those who forced him onward were armed with pistols, and daggers. At this unusual sight, the populace became enraged, and attacked them with stones, and whatever missiles they could get hold of. They (the Virginians) at length succeeded in getting him into one of our justice's offices (the office of John Bartram J. P.), and there guarded him as stated for a new trial. Before the door of the office, the excited multitude assembled demanding justice and the negro, but all of no avail. The entrance was guarded with with pistols and bowie-knives. At this time the sheriff arrived and begged to be heard, and requested the mob to disperse but this also was as of no effect. At length a cry for the public arms was heard, the arsenal was broken open and the arms obtained, which presented a horrible spectacle: The excited populace under arms still demanded entrance, which was refused. All the orders of the sheriff and the court to restore order seemed to be of no effect. Pistols and bowie-knives were all the law.

"At length one of the associate judges-- Judge Anderson--left the bench and in defiance of cocked pistols, and flashing steel, forced his way into the office, after which others followed, and burst open the back door by which means the negro made his escape. He had run but a short distance when he was as overtaken by one of his pursuers, who presented a pistol and threatened to shoot him if he did not stop. At this time a number of the enraged multitude fell upon the pursuer and knocked him down Another who came to his assistance shared the same fate. This confusion continued till orders were given to arrest the rioters. During the arrest of the rioters the negro made his escape and has not since been heard of.

"In order to give our readers an idea of the spirit that prevailed we quote one of the threats thrown out by one of the rioters: 'By the living God in heaven I'll shoot that fellow.' We would further remark that the rioters (we believe eight in number) were the same day arrested and recognized to appear from day to day under bonds of $600 each. Were we to go into detail of all the particulars at this time it would occupy at least two or three columns of this week's paper. We have therefore concluded to await the further result of the court, and present the whole in-its proper light. In conclusion we are happy to state that no lives were lost though several persons were wounded

"We hope the gentlemen from the South will return to their native State, fully satisfied that we have a court of justice in the town of Marion, Ohio and a people who are able and willing to sustain it; and that a band of armed assailants are not able to trample upon our laws with impunity.

"We cannot pass over without reminding our readers, and the public, that the above transaction was not an abolition, or anti-abolition fracas. A large portion of our citizens who were engaged in it are not only not abolitionists, but strongly opposed to abolition principles. It was not the freedom of the negro that was contended for; it was the law of our country that we saw resisted, and defiance bid to with deadly weapons, and an apparent reckless disregard of human life. May those guilty of the outrage receive summary punishment; we think the lesson would be salutary."

Justice Bartram's office was located, at the time of the riot, on the west side of North Main street, where the Neidig restaurant now is, being just across the alley from Byerly's Tavern, which was located on the site of the Harvey-Breen Block. North Main street had just recently been improved with broken limestone and thus afforded an abundance of material for the enraged populace to use in the assault on the Virginians.

The testimony at the trial showed that Black Bill had once been owned by John Lewis, a cousin of the plaintiff Adnah Van Bibber, and the court held that Van Bibber had failed to prove ownership. As soon as the court had discharged the defendant from custody, Attorney Sweetser announced "May it please the court; my client now intends to arrest the negro as the property of John Lewis, of Kanawha, Virginia, take him before John Bartram of this place, a justice of the peace, and there under a well-known act of Congress seek a full, fair and impartial investigation and adjudication of the case.

James H. Anderson, in his admirable life and letters of his father Thomas J. Anderson says that "Black Bill spent the first night in a swamp near Marion whence he made his way to the house of Reuben Benedict, a Quaker (who resided on a farm in the eastern part of Marion, near Morrow County), where he was secreted in Reuben's garret. His next stopping place was a Quaker settlement two miles north of Fredericktown his next, another Quaker settlement at Greenwich Huron County his next, the town of Oberlin from which place he was escorted to Canada.

On the same clay, August 27, 1839, the court caused the arrest of the Southerners and their attorneys as shown by the journal of the court of the same date, which recites that:

"A very serious noise and disturbance having taken place this day in open court and the court having repeatedly called to order, and the noise and disturbance still increasing and continuing and a great contempt being perpetrated in open court and in the presence thereof, the court ordered the sheriff to arrest instantly and bring before them those persons who were in open court committing open contempt to the great hinderance of the aclministration of justice, and thereupon the sheriff of this county under the direction aforesaid seized and brought into court here the following persons by him returned as guilty of a great disturbance and noise in court and for assaults and batteries and various contempts by them perpetrated and perpetrating in open court, towit: R.

Ordered by the court that the charges be forthwith committed to writing by the prosecuting attorney of this county that a copy thereof if required be given to each of the above named persons returned and that they for present stand committed."

Each of the parties arrested gave bond in the sum of $600 and was released except Adnah Van Bibber and Francis Bower. Van Bibber, who was the first of the party arrested, was committed to jail for only a few hours but Bower, was not released until September 3, 1839 The charge of contempt as drawn by Cooper K. Watson, prosecuting attorney, charged Robert W. Clanahan, Adnah Van Bibber, William F. Goshorn, John P.

Interrogatories were also filed in court by Prosecutor Watson calling upon the parties held for contempt to state whether there was any understanding or agreement among defendants to aid assist and support each other in arresting said negro man, Attorney Sweetser was asked if he advised the arrest of the negro in the Court House and in the presence of the court
During the autumn of 1804 Nathan Boone and Mathias Van Bibber went on a hunt, planning to go to the Kanzas; they proceeded up Grand River, trapping on the way to the source of the stream. After having trapped fifty-six beavers and twelve otters they were visited in their camp by twenty-two Osages who stole all the furs and three horses; the Indians warned them to clear out as another party of red men were hunting for them.
Boone went among the Osages in the spring of 1805 in an attempt to recover his stolen property. He first visited the Big Osage town on Pomme de Terre Creek and from a trader there learned that it was the Little Osages who had robbed him and Van Bibber. When he went to the Little Osage town he was unable to recognize the thieves owing to their painted faces and changes of rude costume. White Hair, chief of all the tribe, sent some of his braves to get the horses belonging to the white men, but Boone recovered only two traps—the horses had been removed to a safe place before the messengers arrived.

NOTES:
Obituary appearing in the Nicholas County Chronicle, March 1889: "David C. R. VanBibber was born in Nicholas County which was then Kanahwa County, November 16, 1799. He died March 1, 1889, aged 89 years, 3 months and 15 days. In his death, Nicholas County has lost a man and citizen of sterling worth. Mr. VanBibber was an intelligent gentleman, pleasant and agreeable in his manner, a true friend, good neighbor, a kind father, and while he was not a member of any church, we have reason to believe that he was a Christian."

"His mind well stored with useful information, acquired in a long lifetime of association with his fellow men, and from reading, was vigorous to the last. One of the oldest citizens of this section, it was a treat to listen to his narration of incidents in the early years, but he is gone and thus link by link is broken the chain that connects the past to the present."

"He leaves seven sons, two daughters . . . who lives in Nebraska . . and one who lives in Iowa. While he had been in declining health for several years, his last sickness was of only nine days duration and he passed away "like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him and lies down to pleasant dreams.""

"We all shall miss him as a neighbor, friend, citizen, father; but we have the hope that our loss is his gain."

From an obituary appearing in the Nicholas County Chronicle:

Noah VanBibber was born in Nicholas County on the Camp Fork off Peter's Creek on June 26, 1844, and departed this life April 19, 1899 at the age of 54 years, 9 months and 23 days. He spent his youthful days, early manhood and the prime of his life in Nicholas County during which he secured for himself a host of friends, who learned to love him because of the kind and general manner of his loving, sympathizing, sacrificing spirit. At the age of 22 years he had the responsibility of providing for and taking care of his mother and father. In the year 1872, death called his mother to leave these transient scenes to join the blessed in the pure heaven of rest, leaving him and his father alone; but boldly and patiently he bore the task of caring for him. He ministered to the wants of his father from the death of his mother up to 1887 when his brother, Nathan, relieved him of his burden. In the year 1891 he purchased a farm in Oklahoma territory ar which place he resided up to the time of his death. Notwithstanding the kind of care of Mr. Hickman and family with whom he was staying at the time, . . . the death messenger called upon him . . .

A Distant Flame: The Inspiring Story of Jack VanBebber's Quest for a World
Olympic Title

Autobiography of a sickly and partially handicapped boy who grew up and won a
1932 Olympic Gold Medal -- Severely injured in a wagon accident as a young
school boy, it seemed Jack VanBebber was destined to remain sickly and
reclusive throughout his life. Inspired by a high school coach and the
accomplishments of amateur athletes in the Olympic games, he overcame his
handicap to excel as a wrestler. At the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, he
became champion of the world in his weight class. This story of Jack VanBebber
as told by Julia VanBebber, his wife, is an inspiring American success story
that will leave the reader with a better understanding of the strength of the
human body and spirit.

From the Internet (Eugene F. Cordell, Medical Annals of Maryland Baltimore:
Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of the State of Maryland, 1903)

SOME FAMILY HISTORY:
The Van Bibbers came originally from Utrecht, Holland, and settled on part of " Bohemia Manor " in Cecil County, Maryland. Some of the descendants of these settlers moved to Baltimore, and went into the shipping business at Felts Point, then a rival of Baltimore, but now part of it. They were very successful, and built a handsome house on Thames Street, the woodwork of which was secured in recent years by J. Alexis Shriver, and taken to his home at " Olney", Harford County, Md.
After having amassed considerable money at Fells Point, Washington Van Bibber (1778-1849) and his wife Lucretia Emory, moved to " Avondale", in Carroll County, Md.. a few miles beyond Westminster, and took up the home of Legh Master, who had an iron furnace there, and who in a fit of anger pushed one of his colored servants into a burning furnace.

While at Avondale the Van Bibbers. through Isaac Van Bibber, just 100 years ago-1844-as a result of his collections, built the Episcopal Church in Westminster. All the Van Bibbers of Avondale are buried in this church yard. And there they reinterred the body of Legh Master, originally buried at Avondale."

Dr. W. Chew Van Bibber, one of the brothers, however, moved to Baltimore, and was for many years a very successful doctor on Franklin St., residing where the, present Y. M. C. A. building now stands. Miss Alice Van Bibber, one of his daughters, lives on Bolton Street. Baltimore.

Isaac Van Bibber was born January 17. 1810, studied law and was admitted to the bar; spent three years in European travel, returned to "Avondale", and died there September 28, 1847

JAMES D. VAN BIBBER. This gentleman is the son of Joseph and Susan (Boone) Van Bibber, and was born May 3, 1828, in Liberty, Clay county, Missouri. In 1882 his parents moved to Randolph county, Arkansas, where they died, leaving James D., our subject, still a child. In 1844 he came with his grandfather, Daniel Boone, to Greene county, Missouri, and settled on a farm near Ash Grove. He worked upon a farm, and saved money enough to give himself a good common school education. He taught school several terms, two in 1849, and one in the winter of 1850. In May, 1850, he sold goods for Alfred Stealey, at Cave spring, which position he held until Mr. Stealey's death in 1853. Mrs. Stealey then gave Mr. Van Bibber entire control of the store until 1866, when he bought the stock of goods from her, and ran it on his own account until 1860. He was married February 28, 1854, to Caroline, daughter of Alfred and Lucinda (Brower) Stealey. They have been blest with two children, viz.. Alfred H. and Laura B. In 1869 he removed to Walnut Grove, where he lived until 1874, when he made the race for county clerk, upon the Democratic ticket, and was elected. He served his term of four years, and was renominated and re-elected in 1878, and was again re-elected in 1882. He is held in high esteem by all political parties. He is a Mason, has been secretary of the lodge for several years, and is a gentleman in every sense.

JAMES HENRY FRY
Son of Reuben and Anne Coleman (Slaughter) Fry was born 27 December, 1798, in Madison County, Virginia; died 26 June, 1863, at his residence in Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia. He arrived in Charleston in October, 1818, and undertook the study of law in the office of his brother, Jospeh Lapenay Fry. He was admitted to the bar, but soon abandoned the practice to enter the field of business. He was a salt maker in the Salines for a number of years; was deputy sheriff for 2 or 3 terms, and was sheriff of the county for 4 consecutive years. He served two terms in the lower branch of the Virginia Legislature, and one term in the State Senate. Mr. Fry was an excellent business man and was universally respected by everyone who knew him.

James Henry Fry was married twice. His first wife was Miss Chloe Donnally, his second, the sister of the first, Miss Jane Donnally. They were the daughters of Andrew Donnally, Jr., born 17 October, 1778 at Fort Donnally; died 21 June, 1849, in Kanawha County, West Virginia, and his wife, whom he married 31 May, 1802, Marjorie Van Bibber, born 13 March, 1781; died 14 February, 1850. Marjorie's sister, Chloe Van Bibber, married Jesse Boone, a son of Daniel Boone.
Andrew Donnally, Jr.'s father, Andrew Sr., was one of the early pioneers in western Virginia, emigrating form Ireland about 1750 building "Donnally's" fort in 1771. He was appointed County Lieutenant and Sheriff of Botetourt County, and served during the gubernatorial incumbencies of both Patrick Henry
and Thomas Jefferson; as trustee of Lewisburg on its incorporation as a town in 1782. When Kanawha County was formed in 1789 from Greenbrier (he was appointed its lieutenant when formed in by Jefferson), and Montgomery
Counties, he became its delegate to the lower house of the Virginia Legislature, serving in that capacity again in 1803.
The children of James Henry Fry by his two marriages were: (I am unable at this writing, with any degree of certainty, to relegate each child to his of her proper mother).
1. Philip Fry, died young. Unmarried.
2. Marjorie Fry, married Alban Goshorn.
3. Mary Fry, married Lewis Wilson.
4. Henry Fry.
5. James Fry, married Julia Welch.
6. Joseph L. Fry, married 1878, Miss Eliza Follonsbee.

Historical Highlights of the
89th Chemical Mortar Battalion
The Rhine Crossing:
The period from March 11 to March 27, 1945, was the most eventful in the whole war for the Battalion.

On March 13, Edwin N. Van Bibber, CO of the 313th Infantry Regiment, took members of his staff, battalion commanders, and commanders of attached units, which included Captain Westbrook, forward on reconnaissance. The site selected for the crossing was Orsoy, Germany, a small town somewhat northwest of Hamborn, the closest Ruhr industrial area. Here the terrain was moderately favorable for a river crossing, but the routes of approach into the town were quite open and under excellent observation from the enemy in his factory buildings across the river.

The town itself had a population of about 1,000 which was evacuated in the period March 12-15 and, as in all towns, it afforded several good mortar positions, most of which has been zeroed in by Jerry artillery. In front of the town and next to the river was a 20-foot dike which sloped up to a 5-10 foot thickness at the top, but north of the town it curved away from the river. In the lowland between stood a large three-story factory, a natural OP, which American unites used only when necessary and which the Germans never shelled, strangely enough.

ROBERT VANBEVER.----------Persistency and determination are salient traits
in the character of Robert VANBEVER, who is the present efficient incumbent
of the office of sheriff of BELL County, Kentucky. He maintains his home at
Pineville, the judicial center of the county, and here he is recognized as a
man of unusual business ability and as one whose deep and sincere interest
in all htat affects the general welfare is characterized by loyalty and
public spirit.
A native son of BELL County, Kentucky, Robert VANBEVER has here resided
during practically his entire life-time thus far. He was born on Yellow
Creek, on the 7th of February 1870, and is a son of William and Emily
(HOWARD) VANBEVER, both of whom were born in BELL County, thr former in
1838. George VAN BEVER, the paternal grandfather of him of Tennessee and as
a young man he came to Kentucky, locating on Yellow Creek, in BELL County,
where he became a prominent and influential farmer. William VANBEVER was
reared under the invigorating influence of the farm on which he was born and
he was a gallant and faithful soldier in the Union army in the Civil war,
serving with all of valor during the last two years of that sanguinary
struggle. He passed his entire life on the farm which he and his fatehr
cleared, and he was summoned to eternal rest in 1878, at the comparatively
young age of forty years. His wife was a daughter of Larkin and Catherine
(ELY) HOWARD.
The third in order of birth in a family of six children, Robert
VANBEVER was a child of but eight years of age the time of his father's
death. He was then taken into the home of an uncle, Sam KING, who lived
near Barbourville, and who cared for him during the ensuing three years.
The youthful Robert attended school for a period of six months and when
eleven years of age he returned to BELL County, where he resumed the active
responsibilities of live by working, first on railroad construction, and
later in a saw mill. In 1896 he was elected to the office of chief of
police of Pineville, and he served in that capacity for two years, when he
resigned in order to enlist as a soldier in the Fourth Kentucky Volunteer
Infantry, for service in the Spanish-American war. He served for nine
months, at the expiration of which he received his honorable discharge and
was mustered out of the army in Alabama. After his return to Pineville, he
was deputy of sheriff for a period of four years. He was then, in 1902,
elected jailor of BELL County, and after remaining in tenure of that office
for two terms he was elected, in the fall of 1909, to the office of sheriff
of BELL County. He asumed the responsibilities of the last-mentioned
position in January, 1910, and in connection therewith he is giving a most
distinguished and capable administration. In addition to his participation
in public affairs he is interested in a number of important business
enterprises in this section, and at the present time is vice president of
the Straight Creek Coal Mining Company.
On the 24th of December, 1902, was recorded the marriage of Mr.
VANBEVER To Miss Bertha BAILEY, who was born in BELL County, Kentucky, on
the 20th of June, 1881, and who is a daughter of C.H. and Eliza (RICE)
BAILEY, the former of whom was born in LEE County, Virginia, in 1852, and
who is now living at Blanche, Kentucky. Mrs. BAILEY is a native of HARLAN
County, Kentucky, where her birth occurred in 1859, and she is still living
in 1911. Mr. BAILEY came to Kentucky from the Old Dominion commonwealth in
the ante-bellum days, his fatehr locating a tract of farming land in what
was the HARLAN County. To Mr. and Mrs. VANBEVER have been born two
children, namely: Clara and Robert, Jr.
A staunch Republican in his political proclivities, Mr. VANBEVER has
long been an active factor in connection with public affairs in BELL County.
He has ever manifested a whole-souled interest in all matters tending to
advance the civic and material welfare of this county and he has acquitted
himself with all of honor and credit in the various offices to which he has
been elected. He is prominent in fraternal circles, holding membership in
BELL Lodge, No. 691, F. & A. M., of Pineville; in Middlesboro Lodge, No.
1041, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks; in the Order of Owls at
Middlesboro; and in the Pineville lodges of the Independent Order of Odd
Fellows, the Knights of Pythias and the Knights of the Maccabees. In their
religious adherency he and his wife are devout members of the Methodist and
Baptist churches, and they are accorded the unqualified confidence and
esteem of their fellow-cititens.

John Edward Kenna

At the opening of the extra session of the Forty-fifth Congress, October 10,
1877, a broad shouldered young man, six feet tall and well proportioned, with
a good-humored but resolute countenance and a wide-awake, determined
expression on his face, took a seat on the Democratic side of the House of
Representatives.

He had an easy, off-hand way about him that captured the attention of the
reporters at first sight, and his youthful appearance, in comparison with the
grave and reverend seniors who sat around him, at once had the effect of
making him an object of interest to the galleries and floors as
"Representative Kenna, of West Virginia, the youngest member of the House."

John E. Kenna was born in Kanawha county, Virginia, April 10, 1848. His
father, Edward Kenna, came from Ireland to American when fourteen years of
age, and was employed at Natchez, Mississippi, by an extensive firm, of which
the venerable Felix La Coste, now of St. Louis county, Missouri, was the chief
member, when the great tornado of 1840 swept over the town, almost entirely
destroying it, killing several hundred residents and leaving many of its
inhabitants to escape barely with their lives. Among the latter was Edward
Kenna, who wrote a description of the great hurricane, which has been
preserved and republished on several recurring anniversaries of the dread
event.

>From Natchez, Edward Kenna made his way to Cincinnati, where he took such
employment as he could command. He was thus engaged when some providential
circumstance brought him in contact with Charles Fox, a respectable lawyer,
who kindly tendered him the use of his library and advised him to study law.
This advice was readily accepted, and Mr. Kenna began the study of law with
Mr. Fox, finding among his associates in his early career at the Cincinnati
Bar, George Hoadly, Wm. S. Groesbeck, George H. Pendleton, and others who have
since risen to National distinction.

In 1847 Mr. Kenna married Margery, the only daughter of John Lewis, of Kanawha
county, Virginia, a grandson of General Andrew Lewis, and soon afterward
settled in that county. Here for eight years he successfully practiced his
profession, devoting a large part of his time also to enterprises connected
with the development of the Kanawha and Coal river valleys. In 1855 he earned
a State reputation by a speech in the Staunton Convention, seconding the
nomination of Henry A. Wise for Governor. He was absolutely a self-made man
and is remembered as being of indomitable will, extraordinary energy,
brilliant mind and public spirit. He was one of the largest and finest
specimens of physican manhood the writer ever saw.

This much is here said of him, because it is known that his own struggles,
single-handed and alone in life, had inspired him with the hope that he would
live to see an only son armed and equipped by his aid and encouragement for a
successful career. Among his intimate friends he often gave expression to this
deep desire. Little did he then realize that his boy had the same difficulties
before him which he himself had confronted, and would conquer them as well. In
1856, in the prime and vigor of a splendid manhood, at the age of only thirty-
nine years, with so much of life and promise before him, he met an untimely
death. He left two little girls, aged respectively four and six years, and
John Edward Kenna, the subject of this sketch, an orphan boy at eight years of
age.

In 1858, Mrs. Kenna, with her three children, removed to Missouri where her
brother resided, and where she remained until the breaking out of war. She had
a governess for awhile, under whose tutelage her children were trained in the
branches of an English education; but the failure of her husband's estate,
which largely consisted of unmarketable lands, in the absence of judicious
management, to realize funds, took away this advantage and her son began
active employment. He continued his labor to the opening of a new farm, and
often Senator Kenna now refers with pride to the fact, that he can look upon
one of the finest plantations in Missouri, and remember that he redeemed it
from its natural state with a prairie plow and four yoke of oxen, when he was
but eleven years of age. While so engaged he became an expert teamster and did
much of the heavy hauling and opening up of new habitations on the then
Western prairie.

The fact that he was an only son led his mother, during her widowhood, to rely
greatly upon him, notwithstanding his youth; and this dependence had a
tendency to give self-reliance and fit him, more rapidly than is usual, for
the sterner duties of life. A gentleman who was acquainted with him in those
days tells me that he was a brave, manly boy, and shirked no responsibility in
any form. Indeed, this may be said of his entire career.

In early life Mr. Kenna exhibited a special liking for field sports -
especially hunting. Game was plentiful in Missouri when he resided there, and
nearly always, when the weather was unfit for farm work, he was most sure to
be in the field with his dog and gun. In this way he acquired skill in
handling the rifle, which has given him a State reputation in West Virginia as
an expert marksman, and has afforded him rare opportunites for sport in the
mountains adjacent to the Great Kanawha Valley, where he has for many years
resided. Every fall he spends several weeks in the hill country in search of
game, and it is well known that he is not excelled in such sports by the old
resident hunters in the district that he so often frequents.

At sixteen years of age Mr. Kenna enlisted in the Confederate army, and
followed its fortunes to the end of the war. In an engagement in which he was
on detached service from Gen. Shelby's brigade, he was badly wounded in the
shoulder and arm, but declined to be retired on account of his wounds, and
therefore remained with his comrades in active service in the field. The
retreat of General Price from Missouri, in 1864, has gone into history. It was
a series of skirmishes and battles with both the main army and its detachments
from the Missouri river to the Kansas line. In all this constant and pressing
march, though but sixteen years of age, and suffering from his wounds, he
never failed of a task that any other soldier performed, and never lost a day
from active service. From Missouri the command to which he belonged retreated
into Arkansas, endured hardships that are indescribable. The severe exposures
of the hurried march caused a serious illness which drove him to the hospital
at Washington, Arkansas, where he lay in a dangerous condition for six weeks.
Careful nursing, however, brought him through. He rejoined his command, and in
June, 1865, was surrendered to the Federal forces at Shreveport, Louisiana;
and in August of that year he returned to his native Kanawha, where his
mother, stepfather and sisters then resided, and where he has since remained.

He secured employment at the salt-making firm of Thayer & Chappell, soon after
his return to West Virginia, and remained with them until February, 1866.
Realizing the incompleteness of his education, and possessing a strong desire
to rise in the world, through the assistance of kind friends, notably the Rt.
Rev. Bishop R.V. Whelan, Mr. Kenna entered St. Vincent's Academy, at Wheeling,
and there earnestly took up a course of study, running through two and a half
years, that gave him such an insight into books as to enable him to
successfully pursue his studies alone at home. Many young men of Wheeling were
his schoolmates at St. Vincent's, who have watched with interest his
successful career.

After leaving school in 1868, Mr. Kenna studied law at Charleston, in the
office of Miller & Quarrier, and was admitted to the Bar, June 20, 1870. In
the practice of law he seemed to have discovered his calling. From the
beginning he rose rapidly in the profession. In 1872, he was nominated by the
Democratic party and elected to the office of Prosecuting Attorney of Kanawha
county. In that capacity he rendered acceptable and efficient service. In
1874, he came within a few votes of being nominated to Congress. His practice
extended into all the counties surrounding Kanawha; and in 1875, in the
absence of the Circuit Judge, Mr. Kenna was elected by the members of the Bar
to fill the position of Judge of the Circuit, pro tempore. This was a marked
compliment to the ability of one of his years, and was made the more so by the
acceptable manner in which he discharged the important obligations of the
Bench.

In 1876, Mr. Kenna was nominated by the Democrats as their candidate for
Congress by the Third District of West Virginia. His competitors were Hon.
Frank Hereford, who had represented the district for three successive terms,
and Hon. Henry S. Walker, a man of great brilliancy as a writer and public
speaker. The only objection urged against Mr. Kenna was his lack of age and
experience in public affairs. He had courage, and, though young in years, he
had learned much of the world from associations with men. A number of leading
members of his party in his native county issued a circular letter in favor of
the re-nomination of Major Hereford. While this did not daunt Mr. Kenna, it
greatly wounded his pride. He announced a series of public meetings and
addressed the people in behalf of his own candidacy. At one of these meetings
in Charleston, at which a number of the signers of the circular letter were
present, Mr. Kenner, in the course of his speech, said: "I have no word of
unkindness for these distinguished men {referring to the signers of the
circular}. But you will pardon me when I say that if I could exchange places
with any one of them; if I could stand, a matured, successful, established
man, in all that the terms imply, and look upon a boy left in orphanage at
eight years; if I could watch the pathway of his childhood, with the
obstructions confronting it, and witness his struggles, his hardships, his
labors and his prayers; if I could see him marching on through adversity until
kinder stars seemed to shine upon him, and he was about to attain through
trial and vicissitude a position of honor to himself and of usefulness to his
fellow men - before I would sign a paper whose only effect would be to break
down and ruin that young man, I would be carried to one of your lonely
hillsides and there laid to rest forever." The effect of this speech was seen
and felt. A primary election was ordered in Kanawha county, and Mr. Kenna
carried the county, on a full Democratic vote, against both of his
competitors. This led to his triumphant nomination August 10, 1876. He was
elected by a splended majority, and accordingly took his seat as stated in the
beginning paragraph of this brief biography.

In Congress, Mr. Kenna rapidly developed peculiar faculties for legislative
duties. He was appointed to a conspicuous place on the Committee of Commerce,
in which position he served four years, suceeding in a most satisfactory
manner in securing appropriations for the improvement and development of the
commercial arteries of his District and State, and rendering valuable service
to the country at large. December 5th, he delivered his maiden speech in the
House of Representatives; and the 29th of January, following, he presented to
the House from his Committee, the first bill under his charge. His management
of this measure attracted general attention and resulted in its passage. He,
therefore, developed at the very threshold of legislative life an aptness for
it, and a coolness of judgment meriting the testimonials he received from
other members, and from many of his constituents. He never spoke except when
he had something to say. His splended physique - standing full six feet - his
smooth diction and clear enunciation, and his self-poise, never failed to
attract attention and command respect. He was re-elected in 1878, '80 and '82
- four times in all. His growth, during the six full terms he served in the
House of Representatives, was continuous and steady. But few who served
contemporaneously with him developed as rapidly. He always represented the
progressive, liberal and vigorous elements of his party, and consequently
holds the respect of those agressive, working members of his own party and the
esteem of his political opponents in legislative councils.

Mr. Kenna is a natural leader of men. He possesses wonderful power over his
associates, especially in political campaigns. Because of this fact, he was
made Chairman of the Democratic National Congressional Executive Committee in
1886, and was re-elected to the same important position in 1888.

The legislative session of West Virginia in 1883, was the theater of a great
conflict in the choosing of a Senator to succeed the Hon. H.G. Davis, who
declined a re-election. Mr. Kenna, who had but a few months before been
elected a fourth time to the House of Representatives, announced his desire to
become a Senator to Congress. The contest was a vigorous one, and although
several able members of his party were competing with him for this exalted
prize in politics, Congressman Kenna, with apparent ease, carried off the
caucus nomination, and was thereupon duly elected by the Legislature to that
honorable position.

He promptly resigned his seat in the House, and, March 4, of that year, took
his seat in the highest legislative chamber of the land. His long experience
in the lower House qualified him for great efficiency in the Senate, and from
the very beginning he took a leading rank among the able members of that
distinguished tribunal. Ready and foreful in debate, he found no trouble in
sustaining himself upon any question he undertook to discuss.

He was re-elected to the Senate in 1889. There was but one of a Democratic
majority in the Legislature on joint ballot, and one member, the Hon. C.P.
Dorr, announced at the opening of the session that he would not support
Senator Kenna for re-election. This made the contest interesting, especially
to Senator Kenna's political opponents; but the well known qualities of
leadership which were known to be possessed by the Senator served him well in
that historic campaign, and after a month's balloting, his friends remaining
true to the last, Delegate Dorr came to his resuce, and his election was
accordingly secured. It was a great triumph, and could only have been won by
one who possessed the ability to hold to him, with hooks of steel, his party
leaders.

Senator Kenna is six feet tall; weighs one hundred and eighty-five pounds; is
light complected; naturally social and genial; has a large following of
personal friends; is industrious and energetic. In politics his success is
almost phenomenal. He has been twice married. His first wife was Miss Rose A.
Quigg, of Wheeling, whom he married September 27, 1870, and his second was
Miss Anna Benninghaus, also of Wheeling, whom he married November 21, 1876.

Some 120 years of Texas history grace The Stagecoach Inn - where our frontier heritage is preserved in a downhome atmosphere offering vacationers and travelers, family groups and business gatherings, the best in country food, comfortable accommodations, personal attention, recreation and sightseeing.

The Inn, restored in 1945 by Ruth and Dion Van Bibber, originally opened its doors in the early 1860s as The Shady Villa Hotel, a rustic Overland Stage and Pony Express stop along the Old Chisholm Trail. Cattle drives and cavalry, heroes and desperadoes, had found a welcome resting place on the banks of Salado Creek (dubbed "salty" by early Spanish settlers); an ancient crossroads where centuries-old Comanche campgrounds and buffalo hunter's log cabins gave way to vast herds of longhorn cattle being driven north to Kansas City stockyards. Such frontier luminaries as General George Armstrong Custer and Robert E. Lee, Texas patriots like Sam Houston, and outlaws such as the James Brothers and Sam Bass signed the register - not always with their own names!

The first documented Bounds in America was Marjory's great grandfather,
John Bounds (who probably left London aboard the good ship HOPEWELL
bound for the Barbadoes in 1634 a age 20) who with his wife Mary Hiam
left Virginia for Maryland c1672. John & Mary were members of the Church of
England and indeed he was a vestryman and was one of those selected to lay
out the boundaries of the Stepney Parish (from whose records much of this
information is extracted)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Marjory's Grandfather was John Bounds Jr who married a Rebecca(??). He was
born c 1672 in Somerset County MD along the Nanticoke River at his parents
plantation. John was a planter and resided with Rebecca on land across the
Nanticoke River in Dorchester County MD.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Marjory's Father was James Bounds b c1696 d c1775. James married Ann Dicks
(Dykes??) by 1721 and after disposing of the Maryland lands they left the
Eastern shore of Maryland and moved west to the Shendoah Valley of
Virginia. By 1744 he was in Frederick County VA where he was closely
associated with his brother, George Bounds and his wife Mary Claywell. In
1754 James Bounds was Constable of Bedford County VA., where his daughter
Jane married John Cole. c1761 he was in Anson County North Carolina where
he swapped land with his sons James Jr, Jesse, and John Bownds, his
son-in-law John Cole and Stephen Cole and their uncle, Mark Cole.
James (sr) died by 1775 and was buried on his own plantation in Anson
County NC
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Marjory (Mager,Major,Marguery) was born in 1740 in Maryland. She married in
1756 Peter VanBebber Jr son of Peter and Ann VanBebber. They lived in the Blackwater-Pigg
River area
variously under Lunenberg, Halifax, Pittsylvania and Bedford Counties of
Virginia until 1770 when they went across the Blue Ridge to the mouth oft
the Greenbrier River, then in Botetourt County. Peter VanBebber, born 1728 died 10 October 1796 and Marjory and Olive, her
youngest daughter, born 1783 lived with her son, Peter VanBebber (III)
until after Olive's marriage to Nathan Boone in 1799. Marjory is said to
have lived with one of her sons in Kentucky about 1817, but she spent her
last years at the home of Olive Boone and Nathan Boone as did Daniel Boone
and his wife. The widowed Hannah Allison Cole took her children, Nellie
(Elener) Bownds' grandchildren, there for shelter during Indian troubles.
Marjory was in good health in 1834 in St Charles County Missouri and is
said to have died at Nathan Boone's in Greene County Missouri in 1844 at

Hannah VanBibber and Goodrich Lightfoot Slaughter
Catherine Grizzage Slaughter and Levi Welch
This worthy citizen of Kanawha, at the time of is death, more than a quarter
of a century ago, was among the oldest inhabitants. He was born in Washington
county, Pennsylvania, near the border of the borough of Washington, and with
his father's family came to Charleston at an early age.

Levi Welch was not only the oldest in years and residence, but the most
prominent merchant and man of business in Charleston. In the language of an
obituary notice of Mr. Welch, he possessed a mind of extraordinary strength,
quickness and vigor; he could seize and comprehend at a glance what in most
men would require much mental skill and labor. No man enjoyed in a greater
degree the respect and confidence of his fellow-citizens, nor was their
confidence misplaced. In all his various mercantile and financial
transactions, his accuracy was proverbial, while his integrity, promptitude
and fidelity were alike conspicuous and honorable.

Mr. Welch was a resident of Charleston for many years, but later in life lived
in the Salines, where he was either employed in merchandising, manufacturing
salt, or as chief manager of the business of some of the companies engaged in
the purchase, shipment and sale of salt. At that day the monopolies in the
slat business were large concerns, and required the very best accountants and
clerks. In the capacity of book keeper, cashier and accountant, Mr. Welch
excelled; indeed, his place could not be supplied, and his management was
essential to the success of his employers. The loss of such a man was deeply
felt. During the prevalence of the cholera in this county, he took disease,
and died on the 23rd of August, 1849, in the 65th year of his age, leaving a
large family, many of his descendants still residing in Kanawha. He married,
about the year 1821, a daughter of the late Goodrich Slaughter, one of the
earlier settlers of this county, who was connected with the more prominent
families of the Valley. His widow still survives, in apparent vigorous
health, and is likely to outlive many of her children.

Serepta Jane Smith and Lewis Edgar Riffle

Lewis E. Riffle is a son of William and Jane Riffle, who are mentioned in another part of this book. September 11, 1843, is the date of his birth which took place in Mason county, W. Va., the scene of his subsequent life. He remained with his father until he was twenty-six years of age, when he branched out for himself. August 4, 1868, he led to the altar Sarepta Jane Smith, daughter of James and Ann Smith. Their marriage has been a happy one and their home has been blessed with the following named children: John C. and William G. (twins) Cora M., Thomas B., Isaac M., Nellie J., Elizabeth, Emeline E., Alfred C., James G., Henry J. and David B. Mr. Riffle when first married lived on a farm in Cologne district, but after remaining there for about twelve years, he moved to Union district in Mason county, where he located on a small farm, containing the Entsminger flouring mills. He purchased a half interest in this mill in partnership with D.G. Decker. Since that time they have built a new mill, and now do most of the custom work for the surrounding country. Mr. Riffle and his brother-in-law, W.W. Smith first purchased a two-thirds interest of the Entsminger mill, of Clark Tillis. Two years afterward, Smith & Tillis sold to D.G. Decker, and in this way Riffle & Decker became partners in the milling business. The same firm is also in partnership in the running of a portable saw-mill. Mr. Riffle served in the "old Thirteenth" regiment during the war, having enlisted September 9, 1862. He participated with his regiment in many skirmishes and a number of important battles, of which the following may be mentioned: First and second Winchester, Halltown, Berryville, Fisher's Hill and Cedar Creek. Though a carpenter and millwright by trade, Mr. Riffle's principal occupation has been that of farming. He is an energetic, industrious and useful citizen.

Walter Lewis Ashby

Hon. Walter Lewis Ashby, a member of the Charleston bar, is senior of the well
known law firm of Ashby & Woodroe, and is associated in business with E.T.
Crawford, the firm name being Crawford & Ashby. He is prominent in poltics,
and in 1898 was elected a member of the state senate of West Virginia. He was
born November 3, 1862, in Norborn County, Mo., and accompanied his parents to
Boone County, W.Va., in 1865, and four years later to Kanawha County.

Walter L. Ashby attended the public schools at Charleston and subsequently
Rock Hill College, Maryland. After deciding upon the study of law, he entered
the office of his half-brother, the late Senator John E. Kenna, and was
admitted to the bar, January 30, 1885. A short time afterward Mr. Ashby
entered into partnership with Hon. C.C. Watts, who was later attorney-general
of West Virginia, with whom he was associated until 1900. Since then Mr. Ashby
has practiced alone and also with partners, his present firm having been
established in 1905. Public matters have interested Mr. Ashby ever since he
attained manhood, when he identified himself with the Democratic party, and
through that medium has been tendered public positions. While serving as state
senator he was a member of committees that had much to do with important
legislation, and on account of his legal ability he was extremely valuable in
that position. He is one of the representative citizens of Charleston, where
he has invested in property and for the past twenty-five years has identified
himself with the leading interests of the city.

JACON VAN BIBBER:
On August 18, 1861, Jacob enlisted in the Confederate States Army at Greenville, Hunt County, Texas. He served in Company C, 27th Texas Cavalry. This unit was also called 1st Texas Legion or Whitfield's Legion. In September 1862, Jacob's unit participated in the Battle of Iuka, Mississippi. It is this battle where Jacob was wounded, receiving a wound to his right thigh and across the head. He was left in the hands of the enemy where he was hospitalized and later paroled. It appears Jacob later joined a unit from Tennessee, was captured at Clifton, Tennessee and held prisoner at Alton, Illinois. This was the first part of April 1864. He was then taken to City Point Landing on the James River below Richmond, Virginia, where he was exchanged in April 1865. He was ordered to the command of General Tom Whitfield in Columbia, Tennessee. He was sent to Hardin County, Tennessee for furlough (most likely to check on his wife and son) and the war closed before he could get back to his command. All the above information is in his pension application. After the war, Jacob and his family lived in Oak Hill, Hardin Co., Tenn.
He and Evaline Abagail Alexander, were married sometime around 1863 because their oldest son, Robert Newton Van Bibber, was born about 1864. The 1900 census states they were married for 37 years. Jacob and Evaline would have three children; Robert Newton, Charles and Minnie. Robert married Mattie Wells and settled in Alcorn Co., Miss. which is just right across the border from Hardin Co., Tenn. Charles died young and Minnie married James R. Gant.
He first applied for a Confederate pension in 1902 and it was never approved. In November 1914, Jacob wrote a letter asking for information regarding his second Application #6482 which was submitted in October 1912. Jacob stated he was 84 years old, "broken down," and could not support himself.

In a letter dated September 14, 1915 to Jacob Van Bibber, stating that his war record showed that he had enlisted in 1861; afterwards captured at Clifton, Tennessee in 1863 and sent to prison at Alton, Illinois, where he took the oath in 1864. "Under these statements of facts you are certainly not pensionable, unless it can be clearly shown that at the time you took the oath you were unable for service and remained so until the close of the war."
In a letter from Jacob Van Bibber dated September 9, 1920 he stated he was an old Confederate Soldier, age 94 years. He wanted his case reviewed and he to be advised. Jacob received a letter from Ernest N. Haston, Secretary of State for the state of Tennessee, dated July 26, 1927, advising him that his application for a CSA pension had been approved. I guess they got tired of dealing with Jacob and figured at the age of 98 years he couldn't live that much longer.
Jacob lived to be a ripe old age of 100 yrs, 5 mos, and 1 day at the time of his death which occurred on July 15, 1929. Him and his wife are buried in New Harmony Cemetery, Hardin Co., TN.

In the National Register Listings in Maryland is the Olney Farm's main building, a 2 1/2-story brick house generally called "the mansion" at 1001 Old Joppa Road, Joppa, Harford County, Maryland, which includes the c. 1815 paneling removed from the Isaac Van Bibber, Thames Street house in Fells Point, Baltimore.
It also includes the marble Ionic portico from William Small's c. 1830 Baltimore Athenaeum at Charles and Franklin Streets, Baltimore, and a marble bas-relief plaque designed by Pierre L'Enfant for Robert Morris's great 1795 house in Philadelphia.

Begun in 1810 as a typical five-bay, Flemish bond, center-hall "I" house and continuously dynamic for six generations, this house was evolved into a museum of Maryland architecture incorporating a c. 1850 formal parlor across the rear (east) and a summer kitchen to the south off the 1810 kitchen. These relatively ordinary shells have been embellished by high-style additions salvaged from demolished buildings in Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Isaac Van Bibber was born 25 Feb 1735/36 in Cecil Co., MD and died 21 Apr 1825. He married Ann Chew on 27 Nov 1768 in Cecil Co., MD, the daughter of Benjamin Chew IV and Sarah Bond.

J. Alexis Shriver (1872-1951), a man prominent in local and state historical and agricultural matters who lived at Olney from 1890 until his death, installed at Olney a remarkable collection of material saved from historic buildings in the region. These rescued bit are all that remain of these fine buildings and have turned Olney into a living museum of the building art.

In his waning years, Shriver devoted his time mostly to placement of road markers and writing short articles for local papers. He died at his residence, Olney, at age 79 on February 6, 1951 survived by his wife, Harriet Van Bibber Shriver.

"James C. McFarland, son of James Clark McFarland and Abigail Kimball, was
born at Haverhill, Massachusetts, October 1, 1792, and removed to Marietta,
Ohio, in June, 1803, where his father then resided. His first wife was Lethe,
daughter of Major John Reynolds, whom he married May 20, 1819. His second
wife was Dulce, daughter of Rev. Calvin Chaddock, married January 4, 1824.
Third wife, Lucy W. Greenhow, married in Richmond, Virginia, March 8, 1828.
Fourth wife, Mrs. Maria Broome, married April 3, 1847."

By his first marriage he had one daughter, who married Dr. James Orville
Grant, both whom are dead. By his second wife he had one daughter, the wife
of Major A.T. Laidley, of this city. He had four children by this third
marriage, two of whom survived him---Mrs. N.K. Cecil, of Wheeling, and Mrs.
Dr. Houser, of this place; the fourth child died in infancy. He had no
children by his fourth marriage. His son, by his third wife, was the late
Rev. James Robert McFarland, a graduate of Brown University, Cambridge,
Massachusetts, who studied for the ministry, and at the time of his death,
April 4, 1859, was the pastor of a Unitarian Church in Charleston, South
Carolina. His fourth wife survived him, and died in this city July 25, 1874.
Mr. McFarland died here November 9, 1864, in the seventy-third year of his
age.

Few men of our time bore a more excellent character than the subject of this
sketch. He came to Kanawha in the year 1813, and at a period when this county
may be said to have been in flush times, for it was in those years that salt
was money, generally commanding one dollar per bushel. This youthful
adventurer, to the then Eldorado of the West, left his home in Marietta to
seek his fortune.

Isaac Van Bibber, Baltimore Committee of Correspondence
Letter written by Mr. Samuel Adams

Isaac Van Bibber, a member of the Baltimore committee of correspondence, in response to the British Coercive Acts - the Boston Port Bill and the Boston Tea Party, Tuesday, May 31st, 1774 from the Chronicles of Baltimore:

In consequence of the passage by the British Parliament of the Boston Port Bill--a bill intended to shut out the people of Boston from commercial intercourse with every part of the world--the people of Boston assembled in town-meeting at Fanueil Hall on the 13th day of May, 1774, and voted "that if the other colonies would come into a joint resolution to stop all importations from Great Britain, and every part of the West Indies, till the act blocking up the harbor be repealed, the same will prove the salvation of North America and her liberties." This resolve was transmitted to the people of Baltimore, in a letter written by Mr. Samuel Adams to Mr. Win. Lux, of Baltimore. Mr. Adams said: "The people receive this edict with indignation. It is expected by their enemies, and feared by some of their friends, that this town singly, will not be able to support the cause under so severe a trial. As the very being of every colony, considered as a free people, depends upon the event, a thought so dishonorable to our brethren cannot be entertained, as that this town will now be left to struggle alone. The town of Boston is now suffering the stroke of vengeance, in the common cause of America. I hope they will sustain the blow with a becoming fortitude, and that the effects of this cruel act, intended to intimidate and subdue the spirits of all America, will by the joint efforts of all, be frustrated."

In the Maryland Journal of the 28th of May, 1774, a notice appeared, of which the following is a copy: "On Tuesday last, a few hours after the arrival of an express from Philadelphia relative to the situation of affairs at Boston, a number of merchants and respectable mechanics of this town met at the Court-house, and appointed a committee to correspond with the neighboring colonies, as the exigency of affairs may make it occasionally necessary."

This committee was Robert Alexander, Robert Christie, Sr., Isaac Van Bibber, Thomas Harrison, John Boyd, Samuel Purviance, Jr., Andrew Buchanan, Wm. Buchanan, John Moale, Wm. Smith, Win. Lux, and John Smith. They met at the Court-house on Tuesday, May 31st, 1774, Captain Charles Ridgely acting as chairman.

-The Chronicles of Baltimore; being a complete history of "Baltimore Town" by John Thomas Scharf; Published: Baltimore, Turnbull Bros., 1874

NOTE; A committee of correspondence was organized by the local governments of the American colonies to coordinate communication outside of the colony. These served an important role in the American Revolution. The committees of correspondence rallied opposition on common causes, and so the committees were the beginning of a formal political union among the colonies.

Subject: Re: Canada H. Rogers d. 15 Jul 1923

Report Speedwell Man Killed in Auto Sunday
Cann Rogers of Speedwell was killed when his car ran out of the road and turned over on the mountain road near Jellico Sunday afternoon, according to reports from there. His neck was broken in the accident and death was instantaneous."


The auto accident victim mentioned below would appear to be Canada H.(odge) Rogers b. 29 May 1880. He died 15 Jul 1923. Jellico, the site of the accident, is in Campbell Co very near the TN-KY state line just west of the current I-75. The area appears to be very mountainous.

This Canada H. Rogers married Nettie N. Shelby. He was the son of Isaac L. Rogers b. 1856 and Parlie Willoughby b.1857. He was no doubt named for his grandfather, Canada Hodge Rogers b. 1826, who married Nancy Malinda Van Bebber b. 1825. This first Canada Hodge Rogers was the youngest son of Major David b. 1779.
The following consists of the early history of Claiborne County, Tennessee, as written by ROBERT P. CARR, Tazewell, TN 1894. I will leave the spelling as it was originally written.

In order to extend this little book a few pages further, I will give a sketch of the earliest settlements in the territory now known as CLAIBORNE County was Fort BUTLER on BALL Creek and a station was also made on Station Creek, for which the creek has ever taken its name. Also another station of whites at YOAKUM Station, in Powell's Valley.

The above mentioned settlements were the first in this country. It will be remembered that people had to live in close settlements and build forts for protection against the Indians. They were often shot down if caught outside their forts. One instance I will relate. In the Station Creek settlement there lived a family by the name of ROBINSON.

One morning soon their horses had strayed away from the fort. One young man of the family (James ROBINSON) went in search of the horses. He was going through a large cane brake, near where the city of ARTHUR now stands. At a large spring he was shot by the Indians. He ran nearly a half mile and fell and expired in a few minutes. He was buried at the place he died and his grave is, to this day, marked, it being more than one hundred and twenty years ago. The spring has ever since been called BUTCHER Spring.

The settlement at Fort BUTLER was once attacked by a large squad of Indians. The whites succeeded in getting them surrounded on a high bluff near the mouth of SYCAMORE and pressed them until they jumped over the cliff and were either killed or drowned. They killed nearly all the enemy. This was a great victory for Fort BUTLER. They were not molested any more for a long time.

The famous CUMBERLAND GAP was a noted passway for whites going from North Carolina and the mother settlement on the WATOUGA to the FRENCH LICK settlement on CUMBERLAND River. This is already mentioned. The first emigrants from WATAUGA to FRENCH LICK floated down the HOLSTON and TENNESSEE Rivers. They were troubled so by the Indians that they were compelled to abandon that route and go by way of Cumberland Gap. They wre conducted through the mountains from Cumberland Gap to HAZEL PATCH, now a station on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, by Daniel BOONE.

There was no roads in them days. They traveled through the dense forests by blazed pathways. It was along this road that the 500 soldiers traveled, under the command of Major EVANS, to relieve the FRENCH LICK settlement. As already stated, it might be of interest to tell you how these soldiers were paid by the FRENCH LICK Settlement. There was a tax levied, which was the first tax known to the State of Tennessee, as follows:

"Thirty shillings was levied to the head of each family, one fourth in venison and bear meat at ten shillings per one hundred pounds, one fourth in corn at four shillings per bushel, one eighth in salt at six-teen dollars per bushel, one eighth in pork at eight dollars per one hundred pounds and one fourth in money. Every man was to deliver his taxes to Major EVANS."

I will state that the first emigrants from WATAUGA to FRENCH LICK numbered about three hundred. They made their journey in the winter of 1779, and it is said that that was the coldest winter that has ever been experienced since that time. As already stated, they floated down the river on flat boars. One family in the crew had small pox. It was necessary to keep them behind far enough for the others to keep out of reach of the contagious disease.

They were attacked by the Indians at HIWASSEE, and, as this family was behind, they were captured. This spread the disease among the Indians and killed them by the hundreds.

CLAIBORNE County was laid out in 1801 and named in honor of W.C.C. CLAIBORNE, one of the first supreme judges of the state and the first representative in congress from Tennessee. The first county court was held at the house of John OWENS, December 7, 1801. The following magistrates were present:
Isaac LANE, Joseph WEBSTER, Wm. TRENT, Jas CHIUM, Abe LENHAM, John WALLEN, Matthew SIMS, John VANBEBBER, Wm. ROGERS, George READ, C. NEWPORT, John CASEY, Joseph NATIONS and James RENFROE.

The oath of office was administered by Andrew EVANS and Joseph COBB, magistrates of GRAINGER County. Isaac LANE was chairman and Walter EVANS clerk.

David ROGERS was first sheriff, but, being unable to give bond, John HUNT, Sr., was elected in his place.

The next term of court was held at the house of John HUNT, who lived where TAZEWELL is now located. The third term of court was held at the house of Elisha WALLEN. It was then that a small frame courthouse was built and it is standing in Tazewell to this day.

The first resident lawyer in Tazewell was Luke BOWYER.

The court appointed commissioners to locate the county site for CLAIBORNE County, Viz: George REED, John VANBIBBER, Matthew SIMS, Abe LENHAM, Jos. WEBSTER, John BULLARD and Silas WILLIAMS.

At that time there was three places contesting for the location. One was OLD TOWN, in Powell's Valley; one at BIG SPRINGS, the other one at RUSSELL's CREEK, the present location.

The committee visited the three places and considered the application and when they visited RUSSELL CREEK they located the site there. At the fork of the MULBERRY GAP and CUMBERLAND GAP roads there was a grocery where whiskey was sold at ten cents a quart. The committee became top heavy and while drunk located the county site on RUSSELL CREEK and went home.

The town of TAZEWELL is now about ninety years old. It has never grown to much magnitute, yet she has held her own and preserved a good name.

In the history of CLAIBORNE County there has only been two hangings for murder. One about sixty years ago, the other about nineteen years ago.

Before the war, it is said TAZEWELL was one of the finest little towns in East Tennessee, but during the war the town almost destroyed by fire, the court house and all other public buildings being entirely consumed. The town has gradually been rebuilt. The town has two splendid brick churches, built about the year 1844. Also a fine brick school building, where there has been a successful school for the past forty years.

TAZEWELL COLLEGE is a chartered institution.

The present court house was built in 1867, by V.H. STURM. There are many modern residences in TAZEWELL, and the present population is about six hundred souls.

Other places of note we might mention are OLD TOWN, PLEASANT, ARTHUR, LONE MOUNTAIN, HAMILTON SPRINGS, CUMBERLAND GAP, SHAWANEE, HARROGATE (where is located the famous FOUR SEASONS HOTEL), BACCHUS, HOOP, CEDAR FORK, RITCHIE, YELLOW SPRINGS, COMPENSATION, SPEEDWELL, SPRINGDALE, etc
George Lindenburger Van Bibber IV was born on March 12, 1906, in Harford County, Maryland. He was the son of Armfield Franklin Van Bibber (d.1953) and Susanna Rebecca [Michael] Van Bibber (d.1955). He had one brother Edwin M. (d.1967) and two sisters Katherine and Ann (Mrs. William T. Whitney).

Van Bibber was a life-long resident of Bel Air, living at 303 Main Street, his childhood home. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1929 with a degree in architecture and was employed as a draftsman in the Edgewood Arsenal from 1936-1960. His real interests lay however in local history, travel, literature and the cinema. He made numerous trips abroad, culminating in a five-month round-the-world voyage in 1975.

Van Bibber was active in the Harford County Historical Society, serving on its Bicentennial Commission and writing a monograph “Notes on Bel Air - a character sketch of our county seat.” He designed the seal for Harford County and the town seals for Bel Air, Aberdeen and Havre de Grace.

Over the years Van Bibber contributed numerous columns to local newspapers. He wrote “Crazy Horse Spoke” for the News Advertiser and the Havre de Grace Record and “Henry Harf Hath Hearde” published in the Bel Air Aegis. He illustrated his columns with drawings and caricatures.

Van Bibber never married. After the death of his mother in 1955, he began renting rooms in his house to boarders and having all his meals in the restaurants and cafes of Bel Air. This habit ensured that Van Bibber was a familiar personage in the town and his diaries are full of references

to pedestrians or motorists hailing him during his perambulations.

Throughout much of his life Van Bibber was plagued by insomnia and many of the later volumes of his diary record his efforts to occupy the hours of sleeplessness. Many of these hours were spent on the diary itself with its time-consuming transcriptions, amendments, indexing and the like. Indeed it occasionally seems as if the diary were the focus and raison d'etre of Van Bibber's life with many of the elaborations of style, annotations etc. growing out of a need to occupy his thoughts and time. The days were structured by the grooves of habits and patterns repeated over the years but Van Bibber's relatively unfettered and solitary existence was made even more inward-directed and solitary by the regimen of keeping his diary.

Van Bibber also suffered from alcoholism. The gradual progression from the exuberant drinking of a college youth to social drinking as a young adult to dependence and abuse of alcohol in maturity is evident in the pages of the diary -- indeed, there must exist few autobiographical accounts of the disease as meticulous as this one. In 1968 Van Bibber was hospitalized for several weeks in a state of near physical collapse after one particularly severe period of abuse. As a result of this episode, with its attendant warnings of fatality, Van Bibber embarked on a period of abstinence which lasted ten years. He frequented the same familiar cafes and kept the same company without jeopardizing his own resolution.

Van Bibber died on March 26, 1979, after an illness of several weeks.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

As will be obvious from the previous pages the most remarkable feature of this collection is the voluminious daily diary kept by Van Bibber from August 1926 to February 1979, the month before his death. The diary occupies 63 chronological volumes (with 7 additional volumes kept by Van Bibber on his travels), totalling approximately 50,000 pages. The format of the diary evolved over the years as Van Bibber refined and modified his system but the commitment to a faithful recording of the minutiae of everyday life never wavered. Not only do the entries capture life's progression of one individual from youth into old age but also they unwittingly preserve a contemporaneous record of the social and technological changes over half a century.

Van Bibber recorded his daily routine from literally the exact time at which he awoke, to his meals, his conversations, mail received and sent, his dreams, what he wore, when he washed his socks or brushed his teeth, what clothes he took to the cleaners, his purchases and financial transactions. He described parties and reported conversations, noted the pieces of classical music broadcast on the radio, summarized the plots of radio and television programs, movies and books, reported the weather and commented on world affairs. When he was travelling, this recording became even more complex with times of departure, descriptions of scenery, hotels, cities, fellow travellers and the like.

Van Bibber began his diary while a student at the University of Virginia. He used old classroom notebooks and wrote in a dense scrawl, completely covering the pages with numerous amendments, additions and marginalia. Van Bibber occasionally made entries in Russian or in

a (seemingly) invented alphabet. Many of the early volumes contain whimsical sketches or architectural drawings.

In 1935 Van Bibber began typing his diary on loose-leaf sheets of paper and binding them into volumes of approximately 1000 pages. With few exceptions, he continued this practice until his death. He kept notes throughout the day and then transferred this information to a typed narrative form. Many of the early volumes contain indexes of those items or events Van Bibber deemed important but in 1947 he refined his system even further by instituting a card index. The subject headings of this card system are listed on pages 12-13 of this register. By far the most voluminous category is “motion pictures” reflecting Van Bibber's enthusiasm for the cinema, but there are also hundreds of cards for “books” and “letters.”

Van Bibber was a poor speller and often wrote in a phonetic style but in 1971 he began using an elaborate and complicated “shorthand” system of his own invention. With the exception of the diary of his round-the-world voyage in 1975, he made entries in this code for the rest of his life. The volumes for the latter years (1974-79) also include Van Bibber's personal correspondence and copies of his replies.

In addition to the diary the collection includes three volumes of poetry written by Van Bibber, the typescript of his monograph “Bel Air - a character sketch of our county seat,” his treatise on English grammar, pronunciation and spelling titled “Wurz the Far at?” and one folder of newspaper clippings and miscellaneous souvenirs.

INTRODUCTION

The Papers of George Lindenburger Van Bibber (1906-1979) were donated to the Maryland Historical Society in April 1979. By the terms of his will, the Society received his diary and the card index system to the diary, his scrapbooks, manuscripts and any unsold sketches. The material was handed over to the Society by John S. Carver, J. Garland Green and Charles H. Reed, named by Van Bibber in his will as his Personal Representatives.

The Gallery of the Society holds Van Bibber's sketches and watercolors. The papers in the Manuscripts Division are restricted for twenty years from date of deposit.

Jimmy Marcum was born on June 19, 1942 in Concord, Knox County, Tennessee the son of John Canada Marcum and Clara Bell Jackson. He graduated from Karns High School in Knoxville in 1960. Jimmy was drafted into the United States Army in March 1964. He reported to Vietnam in September 1965 and was killed in action on February 4, 1966. His body was returned to the United States and burial was in Marietta Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee.
The 1900 U.S. Federal Census, Indiana, Warrick County, Boon Township, Boonville City, Ward 4 (ED-147, Page 194 B, Line 79) has the following person in the "Orphan's Home" at 322 Locust Street: Vanbiber, Raymon, white, male, 11 years old, born December 1889 in Indiana, and both parents born in Indiana. His relation to head of the "head of the family" (Matron of Home) appears to read "Dep".
Ten years later on April 15, 1910 in Portsmouth, Virginia, at the U.S. Navy Yard (ED-101, Page 28 A, Line 49), the Census Enumerator recorded the following Sailor in the U.S. Navy: Vanbibber, Ray J., white, male, twenty something years old (hard to read but appears to be 21), born in Indiana and parents born in Indiana. The "head of the family" is reported as William F. Halsey, Jr., 27 years old, who later became Fleet Admiral and famous in WWII as "Bull Halsey".
MY ANSWER TO THE QUESTION.
Raymond J. Van Bibber was the son of William Albert VanBibber and Mary Ann Sutton. William was the son of Isaac VanBibber and Missouri Ann Sutton. It appears all the children of William and Mary were orphaned out. Raymond was living in New Madrid County, Missouri on the 1920 census in the home of Elza and Elizabeth Moser. He is listed as a boarder and his occupation was a tie maker. This is no doubt a railroad tie maker. It states he and his parents were all born in Indiana. I don't ever recall finding him on the 1930 census and I believe someone thought that he had gone to Mexico. I have no further information on him after his recording on the 1920 census.

Graves of Early County Settlers Now Fenced Off
By Jake Siener

A Picturesque landmark of Charleston's early history is the Old Donnally family cemetery at 57th street and Kanawha avenue, S. E.

The site of the cemetery was originally part of the garden of the Old Donnally homestead, erected by Andrew Donnally, Jr., who was born in Fort Donnally, near Lewisburg, Oct. 17, 1778, the son of Colonel Andrew Donnally. Andrew, Jr., died on June 21, 1849. The old homestead was torn down about 50 years ago.

The number of persons buried in the plot has never been determined. Several years ago the Donnally family of Virginia street and Charleston Colonial Dames collaborated in fencing a plot, 30 feet by 60 feet, shown in the accompanying photo.

Only 12 of a large number of tombstones remain. Others, it is believed, were carried away during the years by persons and for reasons unknown. These 12 markers were encased in new concrete bases.

Buried in the plot is Andrew Donnally, Jr., and his wife, who was born in 1781 and died on St. Valentine day, 1850. Others bearing the Donnally name in the plot are Melinda J. Donnally, wife of Andrew F. Donnally, born in 1822, died in 1848; Eliza M. Donnally, wife of Lewis F. Donnally, who died in 1858 at the age of 27 years; James J. Donnally, son of Andrew and Marjery Donnally, who died in 1845, aged 25 years; and Virginia Lewis Donnally, infant daughter of Andrew F. and Lucy W. Donnally.

Colonel Donnally and his wife were buried in a nearby hallow. Their tombstones were destroyed during the Civil war. He was a leader in founding Kanawha county and served as one of its first delegates.

The colonel's son, Andrew, Jr., was the father of 13 children. He built the house at Broad and Kanawha streets, which later became known as the old Goshorn property, site of the new building being erected for United Carbon company, recently known as the Tally Ho tea room.

The oldest grave marked by tombstone is that of Mary Ormiston, wife of James Ormiston. She was born in Kanawha county, Feb. 13, 1809, died April 5, 1839.

Other markers are those of Hannah V. Slaughter, wife of Goodrich Slaughter, born in 1778, died in 1858; Mary Slaughter, wife of Reuben Slaughter, died in 1851 at the age of 81; Mary Eliza Effrey, died 1864, aged 2; and Emily Morton, wife of Moses Morton and daughter of Samuel C. Reed and Maria Reed, who was born in 1840, died in 1868.

The cemetery is situated on the south side of Kanawha avenue, a silent tribute to many pioneer residents who helped pave the way for the city of progress, culture and opportunity that Charleston is today.

Gone, but not forgotten

Charles W. Prease was born in Bedford county, Virginia April 28, 1826. He died at his home near Vinton in this county, March 24, 1926. Had he lived a little more than a month longer he would have been ninety years old. From 1857 to 1860 he was a farm laborer in Monroe county. In the fall of 1861 he enlisted in the Confederate army. He was in the battles of First Manassas, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg and others. He was a member of General Pickett's division that made the famous charge of Gettysburg Heights in 1863. He had a retentive memory and could give a minute account of marches, battles and other events of the Civil war that came within the range of his observation.

He came to Nicholas about the close of the Civil war. In 1866 he married Miss Annie R. Keenan, a daughter of the late William Keenan with whom he lived fifty-two years. Mrs. Prease passed away eight years ago. They raised a large family of whom fours sons and three daughter survive.

He was a man of unusual physical strength and powers of endurance and was very industrious; he said that he could not be contented unless he was at work, of those who knew him.

Burial services took place at the Keenan graveyard near Salem Church on the 26th.

Elizabeth VanBibber and (1)William Henry Nethercutt

The true story begins with a Eugenis Nethercutt applying for a Widows Pension for the soldier William Henry Nethercutt.
A search was begun to find out if William Henry Nethercutt had an undivorced wife in Ohio or Kentucky.
In the meantime, Elizabeth Van Bibber had married Benjamin F. Williams

Document # 4 - Shows no record of a marriage between Elizabeth Van Bibber Nethercutt and Benjamin F. Williams in Kentucky or Ohio. (She claimed to have been married in Ohio)

Document #5 - Shows no record of divorce of Elizabeth Van Bibber and William Henry Nethercutt in Ohio.

Document #6 - Shows no record of divorce of Elizabeth Van Bibber and William Henry Nethercutt in Kentucky.

Document #9 - Elizabeth VanBibber Nethercutt Williams says she was the true wife and undivorced from William Henry Nethercutt, and on April 11, 1910 she applied for the Widows Pension and stated a wedding date of January 20, 1853.
Document #11 - The deposition of Elizabeth VanBibber Nethercutt Williams says Nethercutt came home from the war and got in some trouble and left the country and she never heard for him or of him until 1904, when she heard he was alive and in Nebraska. She goes on to say that Benjamin F. Williams was killed from ambush in August of 1892 and his killers were never caught or punished. She further states that she and William Henry Nethercutt lived together as man and wife after he came home from the war, that he got jealous of a man and killed him and left the country and she never heard from him or about him for some 17 years when she got a letter from one of William Nethercutt's brothers telling her that he had been killed someplace out west and his wife had applied for a Widows Pension.

Document #25 - Benjamin F. Williams, Jr. says his mother believed William Henry Nethercutt to be dead when she married Benjamin F. Williams.

Document #41 - William Henry Nethercutt married and divorced two times in Nebraska before he married Eugenia.

Document #52 - In a second deposition by Elizabeth Van Bibber Nethercutt Williams she said William Henry Nethercutt was living in adultery with another woman when a man told him he should not be doing that and should go home to Elizabeth and the kids. He got mad and killed the man. Nethercutt told Elizabeth (according to Elizabeth) the night he left that if she found a man who would treat her right to marry him because he had never treated her right. Elizabeth and Williams married 2 years and 2 months after Nethercutt left. Nethercutt gave their children to his brother to raise, as well as all of his property. Elizabeth kept the youngest by William Nethercutt (six months old) for 2 years and then sent him to live with his siblings.

Document #61 - Elizabeth says Ben Williams was killed by Ike and Marion Whitaker, brothers to the two Witakers that had married her daughters.

Document #73 - Son, William Nethercutt, Jr., says that Ben Williams had some trouble with George Whitaker and there was a grudge so the Whitaker brothers killed him.

Both pensions were denied.
Pension File Claim No. # 859545
Jacob Davis married Eunice Dixon the Daughter of Sophia Veronica Van Bibber
and George Dixon.
Jacob's father was William Davis who according to land records and court records knew the Van Bibbers in Greenbriar Co., Virginia and Monroe County. William Davis's family were killed by the Indians and he was taken by the Sandusky Indians and raised by a squaw mother. He was given to her by the #1 chief. When he returned to the white man settlement he was about 18 or 20 years old. He married Mary Packwood. In this part of Virginia during the 1770-80's there were not many settlers of settlements. William is mentioned often in excepts from county records with other early settlers of Greenbriar County, such as George Dixon, the Van Bibbers, and the Ellisons, to name a few. They all have some family connection to William through marriage. John Van Bibber had built a powder mill in Greenbriar County, where William must have learned to make gun powder as was mentioned in the Court Hearing. The Van Bibbers, also had something to do with the founding of Point Pleasant on the Ohio River. John VanBibber and William Davis were arrested for making gun powder and they were thought to have given it to the Indians. William was put on town arrest and was not to leave the Commonwealth for a year or go see his Indian family. They were arraigned for disloyalty. John Vanbibbers charge was dismissed. William was held bound to the court, because he had learned the art of making gun powder and his Indian ties. Also, William's Indian mother brought food to him but would not go to his house. She was seen leaving it a ways away from the house.

"The United States has set up military missions throughout the formerly communist world, creating situations in which majors, lieutenant colonels, and full colonels are often advising foreign generals and chiefs of staff. Make no mistake: these officers are policy-makers by another name. A Romanian-speaking expert on the Balkans, Army Lieutenant Colonel Charles van Bebber, has become well known in top military circles in Bucharest for helping to start the reform process that led to Romania's integration with NATO. Such small-scale but vital relationships give America an edge there over its Western European allies. One of the reasons that countries like Romania and Bulgaria supported the U.S. invasion of Iraq is that they now see their primary military relationship as being with America rather than with NATO as such."

William Nowell, John Vanbebber, James Renfro, William Robertson, and James Roddye, were the first trustees of the Speedwell Academy. John VanBebber, which was most likely his school of learning, helped this facility. At one time an education from this school was ranked with a college education. Here the young boys learned such things as law, Latin, math and other useful schooling for business purposes. Later, the Academy was used as a school for both boys and girls.

Son William:

Nothing very interesting transpired since you left us. We have had a long cold winter since Febry commenced, say till 20th inst, more so than common. But we have weathered through so far as yet.
No deaths among the friends as yet occurred. Myself has bad cold and cough ever since first of December with but little intermission so that I almost despired of seeing grasse rise. But through the tender mercies of kind and benevolent Providence (whose goodmess and mercy has followed me all the days of my life) I am yet on pleading ground and last week was able to ride to Old Town Creek to a very comfortable meeting at that place. Nearly all the people in the vicinity are serious and apparently for the better. Many have joined the church, among whom are your Aunt Jerusha Lee, Thos. Norville with many others. Uncle Tommy and Gibson are expected to follow. Sister Jerusha, Walter and Polly Moss I think are among the seekers. It would do my poor heart good and make it rejoice if I could hear the good news of all my children embracing the religion of Jesus and submit to the mild septer of King Immanuel. My son, pray don't neglect the one thing needful, tis of the utmost importance--good in time, good in eternity, good to live on, good to die on. This world with all its allurements is not to be put in comparison with a saving interest in the Redeemer's righteousness and I assure my propensities and desires after worldy possessions has very much abated by considersing their uncertain and unsatisfying nature and do pray that my last days may be my best days and that I may pass through earth with my heart and hopes fixed on Heaven. I do most heartily covet and try to pray you and all yours may so improve the precious seed time, that so Eternity may yield a joyful harvest to you and your little ones. But tis hope against hope. When I consider your dear little children will take their first impressions of their infantile minds and are sure to get a set and bias (which you may observe in nearly all families the case from the mother that tis almost impossible to eradicate or remove.) But I hope your philisophical mind will spare the pains to cultivate sound and good principles clear of affectation and duplicity for I do expect your children are as near to you as mine are to me, which are like the apple of the eye--and which I have been uncommonly blessed with and whom I attribute took their set from the mother and but small assistance from me.

It makes me feel grateful to hear it often remarked that such a family of daughters was scarcely known to be raised by one mother, and my sons no complaint only that they were not business men as their sisters are. My dear little Sallie Ann is a very promising daughter and you may be sure its mother spares no pains to install in the tender mind principles of virtue and domestic habits.

We live comfortable and happy as can be. No jars or contradictions is allowed and my dear little Dorcas is so kind, affectionate and attentive that if she thought one of her eyes would add anything to my comfort it would not be withheld. So that our enjoyments are sweet and contentment is ever our guest so far as earthly things concern us. This day preparing for a four day meeting at Barbourville which commences this day. A number of preaching brethren is expected. I must be off shortly or be too date for first day.

Son James is gone at this time to catch fish at B. Herndon's, mouth of Laurel. Ben has got his saw and grist mill at work, promises himself great incomes. Has a town laid out and lots are to be sold in the town of (?). Two steamboats are to navigate shortly. Sam Hogan has been to look out a country to move to since Feby last. Took with him 3 or 4 negroes to sell. Has sold his farm but Charity is still living in it yet. All well. This trip I expect will finish Hogan's building castle. We look for him middle of next month or last. Bob Gibson doing right well. Got near a hundred steers. Many of them will be for sale next fall. Sue Ruth Snaugger for saying he stole one of her yearlings. John Wallen, the same or worse, drinking all he can get. He, I am told, is sure of the recovery of John Hardy's place. Two better titles than Hardy's. He orders his wife off every few days when drinking. I don't know but she will have to leave him for she at times in danger of her life and is the only support of him and James Wallen. Uncle Daniel much the same. Moss, they tell me, is likely to get through his difficulties, don't drink any hardly of the accursed poison. I hope my son, you have seen the evil and abandoned it. L. Johnson and James still doing small business at their place. Olivia has another son. John Word about the same. I don't know how Burch is doing, still a little I believe. Your son Milton crops with Geo. Fletcher I am told. John
Hendrickson bought old Feltcher's place. John Miller lives on it this summer. Your sister Jane keeps about as usual. Rides to meetings and where she pleases, is right good manager.

Should like to hear your prospects and how well you like MO. I feel very much interested in your welfare, not only in time but Eternity and hope you may be pleased with the country and a settlement advantageous for yourself and family was my particular reason for being willing for your moving so far
from us while I was living whom I very much doubt will you hardly ever see me more in time for I fail and get weaker very year and my change must shortly come.

I want you continue your good name. Never give way to intoxicating drink. I am fraidest of any temporal calamity. How many it has ruined and never fails to destroy when made to free with. Not a drop enters my lips. Keep clear of debt which is hard for you to do except a firm and determined
resolution. You have so large and expensive family proud with all and but little help to you soon as they get of size to do you any service they must depart. I was always averse to being in debt. I was surprised when James came home and told me the money you had to bear your expenses in moving and posted him off next morning with what we could raise for you for I had thought you surely had four or five hundred dollars to take with you and truly out of humor to think to your buying so many horses which I thought
bad policy. When I moved to Tennessee, one wagon and four horses was all I was able to get and had more to move with than I expect you had to carry, but I hope if you don't manage pretty well the plantation you sold Word will slip through your fingers and you will hardly know how or what became of it. Your corn I am told did not measure as well as was expected. James got none. Burch got none and I don't know how Skeltoin came out. I can hardly write inteligible, but remain

Your loving father,
James Renfro

NOTES: James Renfro died just three months after writing this letter July 29, 1835. Someone brought him a rock containing a nugget of silver which had been found somewhere on his land. He mounted his horse, took a young black boy with him and set off during a thunderstorm to search for Swift's silver mine. The family legend is that he, the boy, and the horse were all killed by a falling branch of a tree but it seems most likely that lightning struck the tree and/or James, the boy and the horse. All three were killed. James was buried in the family plot where his house stood at Cumberland Ford, later the site of the Gibson house. A small park is now at that site with a marker for the site of Cumberland Ford. James, Charity and Mary (Polly), their daughter, all had tombstones at that site. They were later removed to the Pineville Cemetery by Ray B. Moss, where they stand today, with the addition of modern markers with the same information as the old markers. In the small park at Cumberland Ford, there are numerous sandstone markers which are for the slaves, none of which have any inscriptions. The park was donated to the city of Pineville by Valerie Saunders, a descendant of the Gibsons.

William Renfro was born 4/9/1788 and married on 11/20/1806 to Nancy VanBibber. Jerucia Renfro was daughter of James and Charity (Huff) Renfro. She married John Wallen. The other Jerusha, referred to in letter as Aunt Jerusha Lee was a Huff--related to Charity Huff. The Dorcas referred to was wife #2.

S/Sgt. John D. Baker, brother of Miss Ida Baker and Mrs. Mary E. Scott, both of 1014 English Avenue, was killed November 21st, 1944 in New Guinea. He was on his second mission then.

A top turret gunner on a B-29 Bomber, he previously served in North Africa, Sicily, and Italy, and had flown more than seventy missions there. In his column last March, Ernie Pyle mentioned S/Sgt. Baker as having flown more missions than any other member of his squadron.

The young airman enlisted in the Air Corps three years ago and had been in the South Pacific since September. He received the purple heart for wounds received in Italy last spring, and also held the air medal with three oak leaf clusters along with the distinguished flying cross. He was home last May (1944) just before the death of his mother (Fern May Liford).

The sergeant was 18 (he lied about his age and enlisted in the Air Corps at the age of 15) and attended Arsenal Technical High School (in Indianapolis, Indiana).

Survivors, besides Miss (Ida) Baker and Mrs. (Mary) Scott include another sister, Mrs. Catherine (Baker) Alexander, Tacoma, Washington, his father, James E. Baker, Evansville (Indiana), and three brothers, Walter L. (Baker) of Evansville (Indiana), Earl (Baker) of Martinsville (Indiana), and William Baker, serving in France (with the U.S. Army).

Charles Joseph Jeffords

When the family were sitting at the evening meal at the home of Mrs. and Mrs. Charles Jeffords, 633 Sixth street, Friday evening, Mrs. Jeffords suddenly remarked that she knew that her son Charles was dead. Before any one could reply the door bell sounded and a telegram was received from Washington stating that Pvt. Charles Joseph Jeffords had been officially reported killed in action, Nov. 1, 1918 while fighting for his flag in France.

Last Monday night, a sister of Pvt. Jeffords, Mrs. C. W. Russell had a dream. She thought that both her brothers had been brought home dead and were in caskets side by side in the front room of the home.

Pvt. Jeffords was born in Portsmouth, May 22, 1893 and had been an employee of the Excelsior Shoe Plant for the past fourteen (sic.) years. At the time of his departure for Camp Sherman, July 25, 1918 he was assistant credit man at the plant. Jeffords was given a short period of training at

Camp Sherman and sent to Camp Mills where he remained two weeks. Early in September he sailed overseas with Co., K, 336 Regiment.

He leaves his parents, three sisters, Mrs. Reed Rowe, Baird avenue, Mrs. C. W. Russell, and Alma Jeffords, Sixth Street; one brother Corporal Fred Jeffords who is in training at Wilbur Wright Field, Dayton, to mourn the death of a gallant hero.

Pvt. Jeffords was a member of St. Mary's church and a faithful member of the Knights of Columbus and Knights of St. George.

Pvt. Anthony Billian who was officially reported as killed in action on Nov. 2, 1918 and Pvt. Jeffords who were life long friends and boon companions fought in their first battle together. The boys left for Camp Sherman one month apart but went to France on the same vessel. According to a letter recently written by Pvt. Jeffords, he stated that if Billian was killed he wanted to be killed also as they wanted to return together or not at all.

Both young men were well known in the city and their many friends will be grieved to learn of their deaths although they died for their county and for a noble cause.

Morrison Boal Orr, a director of the Orr Felt & Blanket Company at Piqua, and one of that city's energetic and progressive business men, was born at Piqua, March 11, 1894, a son of Aaron Morrison and Eliza VanBibber (Boal) Orr. The late A. Morrison Orr was one of Piqua's most successful business men. He was born September 7, 1856, in Darke county, Ohio, a son of Gen. W. P. Orr, and was educated there and at Piqua. His first business venture was in the grain and linseed oil line in partnership with a Mr. Leonard, but the name of the firm was later changed to the W. P. Orr Linseed Oil Company. This concern subsequently sold out to the American Linseed Oil Company, and when this change was effected Mr. Orr remained with the new concern as manager of the sales department, at Cincinnati. He severed his connection with that business in February, 1897, at which time he became interested in a paper mill and stove works, and in 1900 bought out the F. Gray Felt & Blanket Company and founded the Orr Felt & Blanket Company, which has become one of Miami county's largest manufacturing concerns and a history of which will be found in the industrial part of this work. Mr. Orr was a devout member of the Presbyterian church, an Elk and a member of the Piqua Business Men's Club. In his death his community lost a capable, greatly respected and public-spirited man. Mr. Orr married Eliza Van Bibber Boal, a native of Kentucky, and they became the parents of two children: Martha Louise, the wife of W. R. Casparis of Columbus, and Morrison Boal. Morrison Boal Orr was educated in the Piqua public schools and after his graduation from high school, in 1912, pursued a course at Phillips Exeter Academy, Exeter, N. H. Graduated in 1914, he entered Yale University, as a student of Sheffield Scientific School, and was attending his studies there when the United States entered the World war. He enlisted in the navy at Newport, R. I., in April, 1917, and in June of the same year received his commission as ensign. Subsequently he served on board the United States Ship Chattanooga from June until December, when he was transferred to the United States Destroyer McDonough, serving thereon until August, 1918, and being then transferred to the United States Naval Railway Battery. He received his honorable discharge March 1, 1919, and returned to Piqua, where he became a director of the Orr Felt & Blanket Company. Mr. Orr is well thought of in business circles and is highly popular with all who know him. He holds membership in the Masons and Elks and has a number of civic and social connections of importance.

VanBibber Donnally and Mary Boyd Waggoner
William Boyd Donnally and Sally Ashton Cotton


WILLIAM B. DONNALLY, a well known business man of Charleston, where he is engaged in the transfer and freighting business, and is also a dealer in grain and feed stuffs, was born in the Salines, on Kanawha river, this county, in 1851, a son of Van Bibber and Mary B. (Waggoner) Donnally.

He is a great grandson of Col. Andrew Donnally, born in the north of Ireland, who came to this country about the middle of the eighteenth century, at which time there was a large Scotch-Irish emigration to the Valley of Virginia. This early ancestor soon became a prominent man in his locality, serving as high sheriff and county lieutenant, or military commander of Botetourt County. This office of county lieutenant, or military commander, was a very important one at that day and was borrowed from the Mother Country, where it was usually held by a person of rank. It carried with it also the title of colonel. Col. Donnally may have been one of the officers of Botetourt County at its formation in 1770. The fort called Donnally's was built in 1771 in that county. The colonel or county lieutenant was the person to communicate with the governor and the secretary of the colony, commanded the militia and presided at the county courts. He was appointed by the governor with the advice of the council and was generally the most prominent citizen. The office was held during good behavior. Col. Donnally was subsequently made county lieutenant of Greenbrier County and continued in that office under Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson, the two first governors of Virginia. There is a story current in the family that he was with Washington's army at Valley Forge during the severe winter of 1777-78 and participated in the awful suffering of that period, but, however this may be, there is no further evidence of his being again with the Continental army.
About this time, however, he had his experience of Indian warfare. The murder of the famous Chief Cornstalk by the whites, or rather, by some white men, for it was an act denounced by the best men on the frontier, had greatly exasperated the Indians and they retaliated viciously on the unprotected
settlers. In the spring of 1778 they attempted to surprise and capture Fort Randolph at Point Pleasant, but failing in that, they turned their attention to Fort Donnally. The occupants of the fort were apprised of their danger in time by two men from Fort Randolph, who succeeded in eluding the savages. Col. Donnally, who had been absent, returned to the fort at night just as the enemy were investing it, but succeeded in entering it without being noticed. The attack which followed was disastrous to the Indians, who departed after suffering considerable loss. Four white men in all were killed, two while on their way to the fort. Among the defenders, Col. Donnally's daughter Catherine took a conspicuous part, though then but a young girl of twelve years. Another daughter, Katie, helped to mould the pewter plate and spoons into bullets and poured hot water through the puncheons on the heads of the savages. With perhaps one exception, this was the last raid of the Indians to the Greenbrier.
Says a writer in the West Virginia Historical Magazine (Quarterly) for July, 1901: The responsibilities of Col. Donnally's position were very great and the work heavy. He felt personally accountable for the lives of the people in the wilds of the Greenbrier, Meadow Creek and Kanawha's rivers and their tributaries. The duties of his office called him constantly from home, but it seems that he was ever at hand when emergencies arose. That he was a man of great executive ability, history proves. Stories of his personal courage and great physical strength are too well known to admit of a doubt and his racy repartees became proverbial. . . . He had only 550 men in the militia at his disposal, for the defense of this western frontier. Governor Jefferson was now asking for some of these men to be sent to General George Rogers Clark to aid in his expedition against his Indians of the West. The Assembly also required of him more men for the Continental army * * * The public credit was at so low an ebb that no one would advance money. Ammunition was scarce. The militia must depend upon the corn tax levied on the settlers. Yet these brave men struggled on and fought for their country.

Col. Donnally resigned his commission as military commander on September 19, 1781. It was not accepted evidently, as he writes officially to Gov. Patrick Henry in 1785. Col. Donnally was one of the trustees of Lewisburg at its establishment in 1782. He did not come to reside on the Kanawha until after the battle at Fort Donnally. He went directly to the mouth of the river and lived just above the present town of Point Pleasant for a year or more. He was one of those who denounced the murderers of Cornstalk, and on one occasion meeting with a man who boasted that he had fired the fatal shot that brought such desolation to the frontier settlements, he knocked him senseless with a stanchion, so that when he recovered he hastened away from the locality and was never more heard of.

Colonel Donnally owned many negroes, one of whom, Dick Pointer, distinguished himself in the fight at Donnally's Fort in 1778. A son of the latter was taken prisoner by the Indians in 1790 and was made a chief by them. He subsequently aided the Americans in the war of 1812. Col. Donnally lived a short time at the mouth of the Elk after leaving Point Pleasant. Kanawha county was formed in 1789 and he was chosen the first representative. The population at this time however, was so sparse that but thirteen votes were cast, although the polls were open for three days. He again served his county as representative in 1803. From the mouth of the Elk he moved to his permanent home, about five miles above Charleston, on the south side of the Kanawha, where he lived in comfort and prosperity for many years. He died about 1825. He had one brother, whose descendants reside in New Jersey and Ohio. Of his own immediate family he had several daughters, who are represented by the Slaughters, Hendersons and Wilsons, now living here and elsewhere, and are prominently married and represented in the different professions and trades.

There has scarcely been a period in the last century that this state, county or town was not represented by one of Col. Donnally's descendants, either directly or indirectly through marriage. The renowned Daniel Boone was neighbor for years to Colonel Donnally, residing on his place up to the time that he left for Spanish Missouri in 1799. Daniel's son, Jesse Boone, who was Colonel Donnally's brother-in-law, resided in his father's home until 1816, when he also went West. Colonel Donnally was one of the early salt manufacturers of the county, this industry being an important one at that time on the frontier, as salt, while one of the most necessary articles for the pioneer, was also one of the most difficult ones to obtain, except in the immediate vicinity of salt springs, where the salt was manufactured by the tedious process of boiling and evaporation. The Colonel and his wife were Presbyterians in religious faith. They died when between 60 and 70 years of age and were buried in what is now the old family plot, where many of their descendants have found a last resting place.

They had a family of four or five children. Andrew Donnally (2d), son of the foregoing and grandfather of the subject of this sketch, was born in Fort Donnally, ten miles west of Lewisburg and, like his father, in turn became a prominent man in his community, owning about 100,000 acres of land together with 150 slaves. Together with a Mr. Ruffner, as the firm of Ruffner and Donnally, he owned and controlled the entire salt output of the county, this being the first commercial monopoly known in the history of the county. At one time he lived in Charleston, where he owned valuable property, though he and his wife resided for nearly half a century on the old homestead, which they improved and greatly enlarged in area. A Whig in politics, he was twice high sheriff, was clerk of the courts, and magistrate and a representative in the Virginia legislature. His death took place in 1849 when he was about 70 years of age. In 1802 he had married Marjory, daughter of Captain John Van Bibber, and they had six sons that arrived at maturity, besides two daughters. The sons married into prominent old families of the valley, and all were engaged conspicuously in business interests. The two daughters married respectively, Henry Fry, great grandson of Col. Joshua Fry, who commanded the Colonial army in 1754, and who had been prominent in Virginia history for thirty years or more, and Col. John Lewis, grandson of Gen. Andrew Lewis, the Indian fighter, and Colonial and also Revolutionary officer of renown. The members of this family, which numbered nine children in all, are all now deceased. Van Bibber Donnally, father of the subject of this sketch, was the eldest child of his parents. He was born in Charleston, W. Va., in 1809 and grew to manhood in Kanawha county. His literary education was obtained in a college at Athens, Ohio. Like his father, he engaged in the salt business and continued in it most of the time until the breaking out of the Civil War. He was an active member of the Democratic party and in religion a Presbyterian. His death took place in Buffalo, W. Va., when he had attained the age of 72 years. He had married in Mason county, W. Va., Mary B. Waggoner, a native of that county. She was born a little later than her husband and died later, at the age of 75 years. Like him she was a Presbyterian in religion. Their family numbered ten children, of whom there are five still living, one daughter being a widow and two of the children being yet unmarried. William B. Donnally, the date and place of whose nativity has been already given, was educated in the public schools, but endowed with a good brain and an energetic nature he has since largely increased his mental equipment in the domain of practical knowledge. Coming to Charleston in 1885 he established here the freighting and transfer business, of which he is now the head, and which has since grown to large proportions, giving employment to 25 people. A Democratic in politics, he was nominated for the office of sheriff and twice for county clerk, but this being a strong Republican district, he was defeated. Mr. Donnally was married in this county to Sallie Ashton Cotton, who was born in Charleston in 1858, daughter of Dr. John T. and Sarah (Fitzhugh) Cotton, one time residents in Ohio, but who were for many years prominent in the business and social life of Charleston, Va. Of this union there have been ten children, of whom two died young. The living are as follows: Sarah is the wife of L. L. Sheets and has one son, Donnally. John C., who was educated at Phillips-Exeter Academy, graduating also from the law department of the University of Virginia in the class of 1903. Frank Woodman died at the age of 9 years. William B. Jr., who is a well educated young man, is associated with his father in business. The other children, Henry Fitzhugh, Van Bibber, Dorothy, Fitzhugh and Robert, are attending the high school. Mr. Donnally adheres to the religious faith of his ancestors, being a Presbyterian, while Mrs. Donnally is an Episcopalian.

Louis Eliud Van Bibber born December 8, 1921 in Baytown, Harris County, Texas. He died on November 22, 2002. He married Angelica Garza born May 26, 1927 and died on May 10, 2001. His Father was James "Santiago" Van Bibber.

James Claiborne Van Bibber who was born in February of 1897 in Mexico and died September 27, 1947 in Mexico. James spent his life living between Mexico and the state of Texas. While living in Texas he went by the name of James. This is evident as he was recorded as James on the 1930 census living in Houston, Harris County, Texas. While living in Mexico he went by the name of Santiago which is the Mexican/Spanish version for James. My grandfather married Elvira Recio who was born on January 30, 1888 in Mexico and died in 1984 in Houston. To this marriage were three sons, Louis, David and Robert. On the 1930 census it states James was born in Mexico along with his parents.

James C. can be located on the 1850 census of Webb County, Texas. This county is right along the Mexican border and is where the present day town of Laredo is. He is living in the home of F. R. Taylor. James is listed as being 33 years old, born in Tennessee and his occupation is listed as clerk. The name is spelled "Van Bibber." This census can be viewed on the Van Bibber website under the 1850 census records. By the way, he is the only Van Bibber listed on the 1850 census for the state of Texas. There was a John Van Bibber who lived in Victoria, Texas, but he went to California for the gold rush. He eventually returned and this is where he died. John and James were 2nd cousins once removed and may very well have known each other even though one family was from Greenup County, Kentucky while the other was from Claiborne County, Tennessee. Eventually James C. would return to Tennessee as he enlisted in the US Army on June 15, 1846 at Memphis to serve for a term of 12 months. The Mexican War was from April 25, 1846, when both forces clashed, until the peace treaty was signed on February 2, 1848. This means James C. did serve in the US Army during the Mexican War. As mentioned above, James C. is living in Webb County, Texas in 1850. In 1854 he authorizes John Van Bibber to collect all or any money that may be due to him within the state of Texas. The next information we have on James C. is where he was to receive $50.00 from the Last Will and Testament of his father, Isaac Van Bebber, Esq., that was written on January 31, 1859 in Claiborne County, Tennessee.
When the 1860 census was recorded for the state of Texas, James C. was not listed. I cannot find any additional information on him from the Texas records. What is very possible, after John was authorized to collect for him in 1854, James traveled over into Mexico to live. While there, he used the name Santiago and this is where he married Anestaria Flores, and lived the remainder of his life. A son, Richard "Ricardo" Van Bibber was born about 1861 in Mexico. With his father being an American citizen, and even though Richard was born in Mexico, it probably gave him the flexibility to move back and forth between the two countries which he did. Richard married Marina Nieto and they would have the son James, named after the grandfather. James also lived between the two countries and went by the name Santiago while in Mexico.

His Father was Richard Van Bibber. Once again, he spent time between Mexico and Texas. While in Mexico he went by the name "Ricardo." While in Texas he went by "Richard." His death certificate which states he died on January 24, 1926 in Houston, Texas. It states he was 65 years old and born in Mexico. Being 65 years old at his death, this puts him born about 1861. The death certificate states his parents were Santiago Van Bibber and Anestaria Flores, both being born in Mexico. Richard was married to Marina Nieto.

Elizabeth Sharp and James Monroe Youngblood

James and Elizabeth (Sharp) Youngblood had only been married a short time when they joined his family in their move from DeKalb County, Missouri to Arkansas. They settled on Long Creek, Carroll County, where their first four children were born. About 1855, they returned to DeKalb Co., Mo., where Elizabeth's family still lived, possibly because of her father's ailing health, and their fifth child was born there, three months before her father died in 1856.

According to a story told years ago by a descendant of the Sharp family, James and Elizabeth had another child, who died in a tragic accident occurring when a turkey feather duster caught fire in the fireplace. Elizabeth had gone to the spring for water at the time and was so traumatized by the incident, that she "went crazy." (Quite likely, the diagnosis today would be called a nervous breakdown). There does appear to be some basis to the story, as the 1860 census reflects James and the children back in the home of his parents in Carroll Co., Ark., while Elizabeth is still in DeKalb Co., Mo. with her mother and a widowed sister, and noted on the census as being "insane from grief." It is believed that she died not long after this and probably buried in the Sharp Cemetery, although there is no marker there, today, to confirm this.

There is evidence that James made visits to DeKalb County, Mo. and possibly moved back there when he left Arkansas about 1862. As the certainty of civil war drew closer, the safety and welfare of his children became a grave concern, for the advanced ages of his parents would preclude their caring for them, should he fall victim to the Confederate conscriptors now active in the area.

When James returned to Arkansas after the war was over, he brought with him a second wife and another son, who had been born in Iowa. Family tradition recalls only that this wife was an Indian women, who spoke no English, and it appears that she, too, died after the birth of their daughter, about 1868.

James remarried a third time, to a woman with several children from a previous marriage. Two of them were still living at home, one of whom later married James' son. They settled in Carrollton Township of Boone County, Ark. where James bought forty acres of land on January 1st, 1880. (SE1/4, SE1/2 Sect.5, T19N, R21W). This was located south of Burlington in a community known as Lick Branch, near a stream of the same name. James and Nancy sold this land a couple of years later, but evidently remained in the area. No headstone has been found for James, but he is likely buried in the Auman Cemetery.

IDENTIFICATION:
Moses H. Van Bibber is a well known agriculturist of Huntsville township, Reno county, Kansas and the success which he has achieved is the merited reward of his own labor. He has worked his way steadily upward, overcoming all the difficulties and obstacles in his path by determined purpose, and to-day he is recognized as one of the most substantial citizens of the community, his labors having brought to him a handsome competence.

Mr. Van Bibber was born in Nicholas county, West Virginia. in the 7th of February, 1828, of which county his father, David C.R. Van Bibber, was also a native. The latter held the rank of captain in the militia. The grandfather of our subject, Mathias Van Bibber, was the first white male child born in a fort in Greenbrier county, West Virginia, and he held the rank of captain in the militia, while his father, John Van Bibber, served as a colonel therein.

About 1824 David C.R. Van Bibber, the father of our subject, wedded Jane Williams, who was born in Greenbrier county, West Virginia, December 12, 1804, and they became the parents of ten children, seven sons and three daughters, and eight of the number still survive. The mother passed away in Nicholas county, West Virginia, in 1872, and in 1889, from that county, her husband joined her in the spirit world, dying at the age of ninety years, his birth having occurred on the 16th of November, 1799.

Moses H. VanBibber, whose name introduces this review, enjoyed but limited educational advantages during his youth, but since putting aside his text books he has largely added to his knowledge by observation, reading and study, and has thus become a well informed man. In early life he learned surveying by himself, and for a number of years followed that occupation in his native state. On the 11th of May, 1874, he left his home in the south and with a team of horses and a covered wagon made the journey to the Sunflower state, arriving in Walnut township, Reno county, in the following June, and was at that time almost without means, He secured eighty acres of land, to which he afterward added another eighty-acre tract, but in 1884, he sold that place for fourteen hundred dollars and purchased the farm which he now owns. It then consisted of one hundred acres of railroad land, and the purchase price was five hundred and ninety dollars. The principal crop which he raises is corn and wheat, annually harvesting about two thousand bushels of corn, and during the year of 1901 his wheat crop yielded a return of two thousand one hundred and sixty bushels. His beautiful orchard an shade trees were planted by his own hands, and the many substantial and valuable improvements here seen stand as monuments to his thrift and ability.

In the Old Dominion, on the 14th of September, 1858, Mr. VanBibber was united in marriage to Joanna Pierson, a native of that commonwealth, and they had a family of four children, namely: David, who resides in Peoria, Illinois, and has two children: Franklin, who makes his home in West Virginia; Margaret Jane, wife of Henry Jones, of Peabody, Kansas, and they have five children; and Lizzie McClintosh, who died leaving one daughter. For his second wife Mr. Van Bibber chose Virginia Ann Holt, who was born in Charleston, West Virginia, and was married September 14, 1867, and by this union there were also four children: John, who is married and resides in Oklahoma; Ulysses Simpson Grant, who makes his home in Huntsville township, and has one daughter, and one son; Minnie, wife of O.C. Andel, by whom she has two daughters, and they reside with her parents; and Fred, at home. The mother of this family died on the 27th of October, 1892, at the age of forty-nine years. On questions of national importance Mr. Van Bibber casts his ballot in favor of Republican principles, but at local elections he votes for the men whom he regards as best qualified for public office. He has ever been a loyal and public spirited citizen, and during the Civil war he served for two years as a corporal in the state service. He is also a worthy member and active worker in the Missionary Baptist church. As a citizen he is progressive and loyal, as a business man straightforward and honorable, and as a friend he is faithful and consistent.

Cook L. VanBibber was born 7 Apr 1862 in Meigs County, the son of Loyal VanBibber (born 17 Sep 1822, died 4 May 1864) and his wife Sarah Elizabeth Robinson (born 19 Aug 1825, died 26 Mar 1904). His mother was the daughter of Aaron and Susan Bolin Robinson and granddaughter of William and Mary Lowe Robinson and Benjamin and Mary Lee Bolin.

Cook VanBibber's brother Robinson VanBibber (born 1846) enlisted for three years service on 2 Aug 1862 as a private in the 92nd Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry, Company A. Robinson VanBibber was killed 25 Nov 1863 in the Battle of Mission Ridge, Tennessee and was buried at Chattanooga.

Cook VanBibber had three other brothers and two sisters: Hamilton C. (born 1847, died 20 Feb 1897), who married Rhoda Skelley (born 9 Dec 1850, died 19 Jul 1894), whose first husband was Asa Metcalfe, Oscar (born 1851), who married Margaret Wilson; Susannah (born 29 Aug 1853, died 17 Oct 1938), who married first Mordecai A. West and second John Trainer; and Mariah (born 21 Mar 1857, died 8 Feb 1932), who married John Cline (born October 1852, died 1933).

Cook VanBibber married Margaret "Margie" Jane Allen in Vinton County on 19 Jun 1885. Margie Allen was born 2 May 1864, the daughter of Josiah and Louisa Blackburn Allen.

Cook and Margie Allen VanBibber had four children: Clarence H. (born 29 Apr 1886), who married first Jennie C. Davis (born 5 Oct 1889, died 7 Dec 1907) and second Emma Harkins (born Oct 1892), daughter of Aaron and Mary Huston Harkins; Louisa (born September 1889), who married Clarence Davis (born 1880); Erastus (born Apr 1894), who married Maggie B. Markins (born 1896); and Emma M. (born January 1897), who married Cash Zimmerman (born 1 Oct 1885), son of Henry and Jediah Mercer Zimmerman.

A news item from Bolen's Mills dated 27 Jul appeared in the McArthur Democrat Enquirer on Thursday 30 Jul 1896: "Knox Township has a new post office. Its name is Van. It will be found every day in the week at the residence of Cook Vanbibber, on Union Ridge."

Margie Allen VanBibber died at Knox Township, Vinton County on 11 Apr 1921 and is buried at Putnam Cemetery. On Monday, 12 Jun 1922 Cook VanBibber was killed when the car he was driving was struck and demolished by a train. The front page of the Republican Tribune of 14 Jun 1922 reported: "On their way home from Columbus, Monday morning, Cook VanBibber, George E. Gibbs, and Aaron Harkins, all of Knox Township, in Mr. VanBibber's machine, stopped here for a short time and proceeded on their way home, and when on reaching the crossing of the Hocking Valley, on East Main Street, were struck by the north bound passenger train and instantly killed, The victims of the crossing tragedy Monday were all respected citizens of Knox Township, and all well known here."

Aaron Harkins was the father-in-law of Clarence H. VanBibber, George E. Gibbs was Cook VanBibber's first cousin (their mother's were sisters). Cook VanBibber's obituary states the accident occurred at 10:47 a.m. when he was "on his way home from Columbus where he had spent a few happy hours with his sons and daughter." He is buried at Putnam Cemetery.

GEORGE ALEXANDER BUSHNELL

George A. Bushnell and Edward W. Fox operated the first store in Clayton. George came from Cheltenham, England, and was a graduate of Oxford University. His father was an Episcopal Vicar as were several of his ancestors. They ranked high in English society.

George came to America in 1880 as an auditor for the Maxwell Cattle Company. This company was formed in London by the Most Noble William Frago Montague, the Duke of Manchester, the Earl of Rosslyn, Right Honorable Francis Robert St. Clair, John Guthrie Smith, William B. Strong and William Dowd. George lived in Cimarron where the company had established headquarters. Business took him to Springer and Raton where he met Minnie Boone Boggs, daughter of Thomas O. and Romalda Luna Boggs. They were married December 9, 1884, in Springer.

Mr. Bushnell was a polished gentleman and one of the most universally admired and respected men in the Territory. He and Mr. Fox were partners in a profitable mercantile business in Raton but they believed the new town of Clayton would offer larger opportunities. They were the first merchants to establish a business there. Trade was excellent. After several years, Bob Ervien and John Hill organized a corporation to develop the Fox Brothers & Bushnell enterprise. The name was changed to Clayton Commercial Company. Mr. Bushnell lived only a short while after this merger. He was stricken with pneumonia. His death was a shock to the entire community and his loss irreparable.

George Bushnell was connected with the history of Clayton from the earliest days of its development. He was devoted to the public interest, fostering every object calculated to promote education and general welfare. Esteemed for his genuine worth and sincerity of purpose, his passing left a place no one else could fill.

Henry Van Tromp VanBibber and Nancy E. Leak
Thomas H. Van Bibber and Sarah J. Leak
William Henry Van Bibber and Gladys D. Merle

William Henry Van Bibber is the child of Thomas H. Van Bibber (b. 1830 in Charleston, SC) and Sarah J. Leak (b. 1834 in Georgia). William was born in Houston, Texas. His father Thomas died there in 1861 of typhoid fever. Other known children in the family are Nancy Jessie (b. 1859) and Mary Louisa Duvall Van Bibber (b. 1855). Nancy married James Knox Polk Thrower in 1883.

William lived in Atlanta for a time presumably with or near James and his sister Nancy, where he learned the printing trade. He worked at the newspaper in Shreveport. Shreveport is where his father Thomas was raised. In 1890 he was in Savannah, Georgia as a printer at the Morning News on 42 Lincoln Street. Later he went to work at the U.S. Mint in Washington D.C..

HOUSE KEEPING AT THE VAN BIBBER HOTEL

? Van Bibber - Ann ? (Interned as Ann Van Bibber Little)
Henry Van Tromp Van Bibber - Nancy E. Leak
You would certainly like to think that your ancestors were beyond reproach. However, sometimes you find things that "burst that bubble" and you wonder if you should ever tell anyone about it. I found something and debated whether to send it in or not. I decided, "it is what it is" and genealogy is about the facts, so here you go.
Henry was born in Charleston, South Carolina, later moved to Georgia, then Alabama before arriving in Louisiana. In the 1850 census Henry Van Tromp Van Bibber owned a hotel in Shreveport. In August of 1846 Mr. John Hobart Heald of Doaksville, Ok. stayed at Henry and Nancy’s hotel. By the tone of his journal he did not seem to be having a good day at all. Perhaps it was the heat or perhaps the Van Bibber Hotel in Shreveport did not deserve even one star, you decide!
Excerpt from "Chronicles of Oklahoma"
"Mr. Heald bought and hauled the goods for his store at Doaksville from Shreveport, the principal head of navigation on the Red River. He told in his "Diary" of his trip by horseback from Doaksville to Shreveport, a distance of 180 miles by the road of that time, the summer of 1846. "
Page 317.
"Arriving at Shreveport, Mr. Heald wrote from "Van Bibber’s Hotel", Saturday, August 22, 1846."
"Sitting at my window the town possesses a very motley appearance, wood houses, log cabins, and brick stores all mingled up together with great irregularity, all characteristic of a new town. Mud, little Negroes, hogs of all sizes and sexes perambulate through the streets, along with the light and tasty buggy or carriage of the opulent planter. Sorry looking nags stand at different corners whisking their tails to drive away the flies. The puff of a steam mill is heard in the distance and the rattle of the billiard ball, accords with the sound of the mechanic’s hammer and plane. That new looking unpainted building is the Methodist church, where there is to be service this evening, and those cottage looking edifices to the west are some private residences of merchants."
"The old man is a water carrier. With his horse cart & hogshead he supplies you with 3 buckets daily at two bits a week, hauling it about ¾ of a mile, and earning, I am informed, about $60 a month at his occupation. Placards are about every door of the trader. Bacon, flour, whiskey, lard, sugar, coffee, etc., seem to be the main staples. Real estate is said to be increasing rapidly in value, and I think some 10,000 bales of cotton are sent forward from here annually, and the supply is increasing."
"The corpulent lady asleep on the sofa, with the little negro to fan her is the Landlady, who presides at one extremity of the table. I am fortunately assigned a pleasant front room, having something of an unpleasant odour about it, but with a fine air, and a commanding prospect of the main street, called Texas St. The former occupant has not moved his books. Let us take a look at this pile. Calhoun’s speeches, Oregon and California, Byron, Mary de Clifford, Forestdays, Penny Magazine, Prairie Bird, a box of Champion’s Pills, vial of Paregoric, & a box of matches comprises the literary furniture. One skin-seated & 2 broken wood-seated comprise the chairs. The table of pine, which was rather spattered with sperm, during my absence to dinner has been covered with a cotton spread."

Mrs. Ann Little died on June 3, 1851, at the residence of her son, H. Van Bibber, of Shreveport, Louisiana. Mrs. Ann Little was a native of Charleston District, South Carolina. She was 83 years of age and she was a member of the Baptist Church.

Robert VanBebber and Sarah P. Warner

Robert Van Bebber was the son of James Van Bebber, Sr. and Hannah Hoover. He married Sarah "Sally" P. Warner and they were recorded on the 1830 census of White County, Tennessee. There is another entry in the court records of White County where Robert sold the slave (Nancy) to Samuel Brown on October 22, 1833.

On February 23, 1835, Robert purchased 80 acres of land in Greene County, Illinois. Robert and his wife were recorded on the 1840 census of Greene County with no children.

They were later recorded on the 1850 census of Greene County. Living with them is China Owens, age 16, the daughter of James G. Owens and Hannah Van Bebber. China was a niece to Robert, as Hannah was Robert's sister. Also living in the home is a Henry Van Bebber, age 26, born in Tennessee. It is a good possibility this Henry is the son of Robert's brother, Isaac Van Bebber and his wife Hannah Long. The 1830 and 1840 census indicates Robert and Sarah had no children.

On March 30, 1857, Robert died and eleven days later Sarah died on April 10, 1857. They are buried beside each other in the Scottville West Cemetery, near Scottville, Macoupin County, Illinois. Their tombstones read the following:

Robert VanBebber - Died - Mar. 30, 1857 - Aged 58 ys. 6 mos. 15ds.

EWING A. VAN BIBBER;

VAN BIBBER, EWING A., born in Kentucky about 1813, enrolled in Callaway County, Missouri, and mustered in, age 32, at Ft. Leavenworth, June 24, 1846, to serve one year during the war with Mexico as Corporal, Captain Charles B. Rogers' Company H, 1st Missouri Mounted Infantry; the Regiment, under command of Colonel Alexander W. Donipan, left Fort Leavenworth, June 26, and arrived at Santa Fe, New Mexico, August 18, 1846; Company H. marched down the Rio Grande and on November 24 arrived at Valverde, the rendezvous for the invasion of Chihuahua; after a fight at Brazito, arrived with other troops at El Paso on December 27, 1846.

The expedition under Colonel Doniphan left El Paso February 8, defeated the Mexican Army at the battle of Sacramento, February 28, and arrived at the City of Chihuahua on March 1, 1847; left Chihuahua April 25 and arrived at Parras May 14; marched from there via Saltillo to Camargo on the Rio Grande where he was promoted to Commissary Sergeant on May 29; the Company muster-out roll shows him on detached services from May 30, 1847, to drive horses to Missouri, the Regiment being ordered to take water transportation to New Orleans and thence up the Mississippi to St. Louis.

Came from Colusa County, California, to Arizona, early in 1863, late in October of that year he and Theodore Green Rusk were with Henry Wickenburg when the Vulture mine was first discovered and on November 24 they and three others posted a location notice thereon but nothing further was done; on May 9, 1864, Wickenburg relocated the ledge and proceeded, with the help of four other miners, to take out ore from which gold was extracted by arastras located on the Hassayampa River; Van Bibber was not a party to a law suit in which Judge Joseph P. Allyn decided in October, 1864, that Theodore Green Rusk had acquired no interest in the property but later derived a benefit according to a communication from Prescott printed in the Sacramento Union of April 11, 1866, which reported that Wickenburg had received $25,000 in cash for 300 feet of the Vulture lode and then stated;
There were other persons beside Wickenburg who laid claim to the feet sold, and one of them, Major Van Bibber of Colusa County, received some $10,000 to quit his claim.

The following references to him where printed in the Prescott Arizona Miner:

October 20, 1866 -- Beaver Valley, on Ash creek and southwest from Woolsey's ranch about 18 miles, is likely to be well settled. Among those who have taken up ranches there, and propose to improve them at once, are Messrs. John A. Rush, Major Van Bibber, Dr. Alsap, John M. Boggs, John P. Osborn, Berry Dodson, Theodore Boggs and Wormsley. The climate is much milder than in Prescott, and the soil is very rich.

September 12, 1867 -- A few days since, 64 Indians visited Boggs and Van Bibber's ranch on the Agua Fria and seemed to be very friendly. They are the same whose chiefs were lately at Fort Whipple. On Sunday some Indians stole a mule from Mr. Dickason, at Leonora valley.

September 19, 1867 -- Major Van Bibber, who has been sick nigh unto death, is now past the crisis, and feeling much better. The Major has had a hard time of it, and we hope he soon may be all right again.

Died at Prescott, A.T., October 1, 1867, aged 55;
the following is extracted from an obituary published in the Miner:
He was an old resident of California and, was, likewise, a pioneer of Arizona, having come here early in '63. He was always to be found in the van of civilization, and had all the good qualities of the American pioneer. We, who knew his jovial and kind disposition, mourn his loss and will treasure his memory.

Harry W. Gilmore and Mentoria Nixon Strong

Harry Gilmor was born January 24, 1838 at "Glen Ellen", the family estate in Baltimore County, Maryland. After homesteading in Wisconsin and Nebraska, he returned to Maryland in time to join the newly formed Baltimore County Horse Guards as a corporal.
After the efforts of the citizens of Baltimore to prevent the movement of Federal troops through the city, the Horse Guards received orders to burn several bridges north of the city to prevent further troop movements toward Washington City.
Following the occupation of Baltimore by Federal troops under Brigadier General Benjamin "Beast" Butler, Gilmor was one of many to be arrested and imprisoned in Fort McHenry. After his release, he traveled South and joined the command of Colonel Turner Ashby on August 31, 1861.
In March 1862, he was commissioned Captain of Company F, Twelfth Virginia Cavalry. Captain Gilmor served throughout the Valley Campaign. At times, he was on special assignment to General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson.
He was arrested during the Sharpsburg Campaign, while in the Baltimore area visiting family. He spent five months in prison.
He participated in the Battle of Brandy Station and was sighted in the after action reports of General Fitzhugh Lee and General J.E.B. Stuart for his conduct in this engagement.
On May 27, 1863, he was promoted to the rank of Major and asked to raise an independent battalion of cavalry. Before he could complete this assignment, the Gettysburg campaign interceded. During the battle, Major Gilmor was assigned command of the First and Second Maryland Cavalry, under General George Steuart's infantry brigade. Major Gilmor was the Provost Marshal of the town of Gettysburg while it was occupied.

Gilmor had organized six companies of partisan rangers by September of 1863. His command's area of operation was the Shenandoah Valley and parts of "West" Virginia. General J.E.B. Stuart ordered Gilmor to attack the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in February of 1864.

After the defeat of Major General Lew Wallace at Monocacy on July 9, 1864, Gilmor's command acted as the spearhead for the raid around Baltimore in 1864 with General Bradley T. Johnson's infantry command.

While assigned to scout duty under General Jubal Early, Colonel Gilmor single-handedly captured a company of Federal infantry. Gilmor and Holmes Conrad, a man under his command, later captured more than 50 troopers from the First New Jersey Cavalry.

Colonel Gilmor was ordered by General Early to take his command to Hardy County, West Virginia. He was to combine with other partisans in the area and attack the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. Colonel Gilmor was finally captured in Hardy County, on February 4, 1865. He remained a prisoner at Fort Warren until July 24, 1865.

For several years after the war, Harry Gilmor lived in New Orleans, where he married Miss Mentoria Strong. Upon his return to Maryland, he was elected colonel of cavalry in the Maryland National Guard. He also served as Baltimore City Police Commissioner from 1874 to 1879. He was a member of the Society of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States in Maryland and it's Vice-President in 1882.

Harry Gilmor died in Baltimore on March 4, 1883 at the age of forty-five. He was interred on "Confederate Hill" in Loudon Park Cemetery. To this day, people gather at his graveside on the anniversary of his birth to honor his life long service to his country.

Harriet Van Bibber was born in Kentucky in 1845. She was the daughter of Cyrus Van Bibber and Mary S. Timberlake Van Bibber. On August 31, 1865 she married Richard Landrum Burchett in Greenup County, Kentucky.

Landrum Burchett was born on January 21, 1841 in Floyd County, Kentucky, the son of William J. Burchett and Frances Emily Auxier Burchett. Landrum was raised on a farm in Floyd County, Kentucky and in his youth he was employed as a clerk in a mercantile store. When the Civil War broke out, he was surrounded by friends and neighbors who were in sympathy with the

Confederacy. The Auxier family were strong Unionists and Landrum enlisted as a private with Company A of the 39th Kentucky Infantry. He was involved in several skirmishes and slightly wounded. In 1865 he was mustered out with the rank of Second Lieutenant.

While visiting his Grandmother Auxier's family in Greenup County, he met Harriet Van Bibber and they moved to Mason City, Illinois shortly after their wedding. In Mason City, Landrum was employed as a clerk. They later moved to New Holland, Illinois where he formed a partnership with G.W. LaForge and established the first mercantile business in New Holland.

Landrum also served as postmaster of New Holland holding the office until November 4, 1885. On March 14, 1885, a disastrous fire destroyed the town of New Holland and the store of Burchett and Company was completely destroyed. At the urging of their friends, Landrum and Harriet immediately telegraphed for new goods and on March 16 they resumed business. During the summer of 1885 they built the first brick building in New Holland on the old store site.

Landrum and Harriet were the oldest settlers in New Holland and were prominent citizens of central Illinois. Richard Landrum Burchett died on April 13, 1907 and Harriet Van Bibber Burchett died the same year. They are buried in Richmond Grove Cemetery in New Holland, Illinois. They were the parents of one son, Oscar Burchett.

He married, at age 26, Felicity Brown VanBibber, age 22, daughter of David Campbell Robinson VanBibber and Jane Ann Williams, on Thursday, 27 January 1859 at Scott County, Iowa, USA.
He was born in West Virginia, in 1832, and pursued his education in his native state. In 1854, when a young man of twenty years, he came to Scott county with his father, Jacob Nebergall, who settled in Blue Grass township, where he purchased a partially improved farm. Later he bought more land at different times and improved his acreage, devoting his remaining days to general agricultural pursuits.

After coming to Iowa, Presley B. Nebergall lived with his parents on the home farm and assisted his father in the cultivation and improvement of the fields until his marriage, which was celebrated on the 27th of January, 1859. On that date he wedded Miss Felicity B. Van Bibber, who was also a native of West Virginia. They began their domestic life on a farm of one hundred and twenty acres near the home of his father and there Mr. Nebergall continued to cultivate his fields until his life's labors were ended in death on the 22d of September, 1878. He was diligent and persevering and, working on persistently year by year, he won that measure of prosperity which always crowns earnest and indefatigable effort.

John BURT, of Orleans Co., Vt. removed to Ohio in 1815. His three sons, John A., Henry, and George W. came to Calloway Co., Mo. from 1819 to 1821. They were Millwrights by trade, and built the first water mill in Montgomery County, for Col. Irvin PITTMAN. After a number of years the mill was moved away and the large water wheel left standing. The action of the water of course kept it constantly turning, and the negroes and a few superstitious white people of the vicinity imagined that spirits had something to do with it, and could not be induced to go near the place.

The BURTS also built the first water mill in Calloway County. Henry BURT died in 1823, leaving no family. John represented Calloway County in the legislature four years, was Judge of the County seven years, and died in 1855. He married Bathsheba FULKERSON of St. Charles Co. and they had nine children. Major George W. Burt served in the war of 1812, when he was only 15 years of age, and was captured by the British. He married ERRETTA VanBIBBER, daughter of Major Isaac VanBIBBER, and a great-granddaughter of Daniel BOONE. When he asked the consent of her father to the marriage, the old gentleman replied in a loud tone of voice that he could have her if he wanted her, but she was a "contrary stick", and if he could do anything with her, he was welcome to her; but he didn't want him to send her back on his hands. Major Burt gladly accepted the "contrary stick" and obtained a good wife by doing so.

They prospered beyond their expectations and accumulated a fortune. Major Burt was a money loaner for many years, but would never accept more interest than the law allowed him. He always paid every cent he owed and collected all that was due him. He was a good man and respected by the entire community where he lived. He died in March, 1876, in his 78th year, leaving a widow and one son, Huron. They also had a daughter but she died many years ago. Major Burt was in poor health for about 30 years before his death, and his complaint often carried him apparently to the verge of his grave.
From the Philadelphische Zeitung, June 1732, the first German newspaper published in America, by Benjamin Franklin. (Translation by Martin R. Martzal.)

It is herby made known that Hendrick van Bebber, who for many years practiced as a Dr. of Medicine with good success, has settled down here to live. From him the best and safest Gbymische medicines which he himself prepares are to be had. Among others, the excellent so called - Englische Saltz or Sal mirable which is for all a useful purgative and also a proven aid against fever and dropsy. Whoever is in need of any of his products can contact him in Laetitia Court where he is residing with Arent Hassert, a merchant in Philadelphia.
