Jacob Cochran Family

My Daddy's grandfather was Jacob Benjamin Cochran born 1822 Guernsey Ohio.

His parents were Martha Henderson and William Cochran of Pennsylvania. Land records show William bought land in Guernsey Ohio in 1821. With the many Cochrans migrating into Ohio, I found that William and Alexander were the only two in Guernsey during that time. They had come from Pennsylvania born to an Alexander Cochran of Scotland, is what the family tale has been.

Martha Henderson's mother was Nancy Ann Clendenning of Pennsylvania and her mother was Sarah Sturgeon born in Pennsylvania about 1753.

Sarah's mother was Margaret Corbett, who had wed Thomas Sturgeon in 1750 - his father had come from Ireland to PA and married Sarah Ferguson about 1729

!Last name also spelled Clendennin !Nancy Ann Clendennin: Guernsey County History: One cold winter's day the indians, being hungry, came to the little home in Oxford Township. Not knowing what she should do, she gave them an apron full of fresh baked bread. In a few days a deer was left on the Porch. She was educated in Harrisburg, Dauphin Co., Pennsylvania, I assume she was probably born there. She came to Guernsey Co., Ohio in 1806 with her husband and Children. She was the first Teacher in Guernsey Co., Ohio.

Nancy Ann Clendenning was married to William Henderson about 1797 and he served in the War of 1812.

WilliAM HENDERSON: Guernsey County History: He was the oldest child of John and Martha (Long) Henderson. His Grandparents were William and Agnes Henderson who came from County Down, Ireland in 1758, they settled in Lewistown, Mifflin Co., Pennsylvania. William was a major in the War of 1812. He was a blacksmith and made his own sword. "Roster of Ohio Soldiers in War of 1812" Page 243, Vol. Colonel John DeLong first Regiment Ohio Militia Maj. Wm. Henderso

William was the son of Martha Long of PA and John Henderson of Ireland.. Martha Long's parents were "Ann" and Thomas Long of Carlisle PA and this is where I must point out there was a Carlisle Indian School there and this was basically still indian country.

Jacob's first wife was Mariah White and her father may have been Joseph White. Jacob and Mariah had six daughters and no sons but on the 1880 census he listed a grandson named Frank in Iowa. Mariah called one of her daughters Josie, which was short for Josephine.....

Jacobs second wife was Clora Jane Miller and they had several children including my grandfather Frank Delbert Cochran so that is the line that I choose to trace at this point in time. My father grew up with Millers and Cochrans and I have some pictures of each.

Researching Jacob Benjamin Cochran from Ohio and his wives www.hometown.aol.com/kc90853/Jacob.html

* Jacob Benjamin Cochran born about 1822 in Oxford Township, Guernsey County Ohio, married twice, followed his brothers to California during the Gold Rush and shows up on that 1860 census with brother John Henderson Cochran, served in the Civil War in the Ohio Infantry and then moved his first family with Mariah White to Iowa and became farmers.

/B>
* Mariah's father seems to have been Joseph White of Maryland who was on the 1850 census of Oxford with his son Robert White, and living next to Robert Henderson, which is nearly the same location where we found Mariah on the 1860 census with her daughters including one named Josina.

Jacob Cochran's mother was Martha Henderson. His father William Cochran of Pennsylvania married Miss Henderson on 2/20/1818 in Guernsey and they are found on the Ohio 1820 census living near the Hendersons. She was a daughter of Nancy Ann Clendennin and William Henderson.

William's parents were John Henderson and Martha Long

Nancy's parents were Sarah Sturgeon and John Clendenning.

All of these families had migrated to Ohio; then several moved into Iowa Territory. Many families and many tribes were leaving the east coast and moving west, seeking their freedom.

When his first wife passed away Jacob married a widowed Clora Jane Miller of Illinois. The 1880 census shows he has a grandson named Frank, but his first wife only had daughters so this is quite a mystery. Several years later, Clora Jane gave him a son named Frank Delbert Cochran and this Frank married Luella Coonfield in Benton County Arkansas

Frank Delbert Cochran served in WWI

Annie Stone's parents were Mary Ann Hendrick and Augustus Marvin Stone.  Mary Ann's mother was a Winters.
 
 
 
 
 
Parents of Augustus "Gus" Stone were Benjamin Wilburn Stone and Sarah Ann Davies of GA - Ben's last name looks like Stowe on one census.
 
 
http://www.usgenealogy.net/members///Kathy///FILES/stone-1860-benjamin-.jpg  Sons of Benjamin were Joel, Charles and Augustus.  So did Benjamin have a brother named Charles??   If so there is an older Charles Stone who named his sons Tecumseh and Osceola....WOW
 
 
 
 
Parents of Benjamin were Michael Stone of Maryland and Polly Wells of Putnam GA and after being in Alabama in 1850, most of the Stone families went back to Georgia
http://www.usgenealogy.net/members///Kathy///FILES/anniesgreatgrandma-stone-mrsmichaelstone-1870-putnamga.jpg  Michael and Polly had another son named William living by them on the 1850 census of Macon Alabama while their other son Charles was in Chambers Alabama, while suspecting John Stone of Putnam Georgia was also a son.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Christopher Hendrick was Annie Stone's grandfather who moved to Texas and he might have been named Christopher Columbus.
 
Hendrick's mother was a Winters
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Annie Stone Fenns' son Cecil Earl took on the Carter name when she remarried in Macon GA.

Alice McClain Carter's maternal grandfather was John Bozeman
 
John's great grandfather was Peter of North Carolina who settled in Hope Hull



Nancy Jane Anderson's parents were Lavinia Jane Sellers and Seaborn Montgomery Anderson + Lavinia's mother was Levinia Anderson, Seaborn's Aunt....
 
 
 
Nancy Jane's husband, Peter Edward Bozeman was the son of William Henry Bozemand and Martha Hill of Darlington South Carolina.  Wm and Martha both had fathers in the American Revolution who moved their families to Montgomery County Alabama.  Martha's brother John had a plantation in Dublin, founded Hills Chapel Church and cemetery, plus he had a family cemetery on his land where Peter is buried beside John's son R. L. Hill

Then Peter Edward's brother married Nancy Hill
Nancy Hill's brother William has their mother Charlotty living in his home on one census and take note that William has a  son name Luther Hill.
 
Nancy Hill's husband John Bozeman served in the Civil War along with his brother Peter and their wives filed for a military Pension
 
 
Peter Edward is also buried by his daughter in law, Alice Lorena Stephens Bozeman.  Her parents were Sarah Mills and Joe C Stephens.  Joe was the son of Elisha and grandson of John of South Carolina
http://www.usgenealogy.net/members///Kathy///FILES/stephensnancyhilliard shows us Joe at age 4 living near Broadway, Gibson, and Jeffcoat.
 
Cousin Sue Carol was  Jeffcoat before she married Wayne Bozeman.....Sue Carol's mother being Loraine "Tutor" Thornton.....sister to Mary Ella.
 
Legend is that John Stephens of 1750s married a full blood and had a son John but he may also have had a son Benjamin, since both are found in Ramer near each other.  Benjamin's daughter Mary Stephens married Abner Broadway Jr and had Elizabeth Broadway McClain in 1853.............Elizabeth had Charles who married Lorena Bozeman and Lorena's mother was Alice Lorena Stephens !!  Then Charles McClain's son Joe married Georgia Lou Broadway !
 
All that is found on Abner Broadway Jr.'s mother is her name was "Nancy".

Jacob Benjamin Cochran born 1822 Ohio died in Kansas-Son of William-Grandson of Alexander Cochran...
 
 
Clora Jane - descendant of Alexander Miller, daughter of James Miller and Mary Parker
 
Frank Delbert was the son of Clora and Jacob. 
 
The 1880 census of Iowa shows a grandson named Frank who was NOT our Frank Delbert.  The "grandson" must have been an illegitimate son of a daughter of Mariah and Jacob, and has never been heard from by my family.  Elzira was one of the daughters of Mariah and Jacob.

The Town of Remsen
until recent years this town occupied a large area in the extreme northeast
corner of Oneida county, much of which was covered by the original forest.
Remsen was reduced to its present area of 23,364 acres by the erection from
it of the town of Forestport in 1869. Most of the territory of the present
town was included in the Remsenburgh patent; a small section in the south
part in the Servis patent, and another small section in the west part in the
Steuben patent, and another small section in the west part in the Steuben
tract, as shown on accompanying map. Remsen was erected simultaneously with
the formation of Oneida county (March 15, 1798), when it was set off from
Norway, Herkimer county, and named after Henry Remsen, one of the original
patentees. Black River forms the northern boundary of the town, and Canada
Creek the southeastern boundary; it is further watered by Cincinnati Creek,
Baker Brook and small tributaries. The surface of the town is well elevated
and generally hilly and broken, while the soil is a light sandy loam. A very
large portion of the inhabitants of this town are of Welsh descent.
Settlement began in Remsen previous to the formation of the town, with the
arrival of Schubael Cross from Massachusetts, who in March, 1794, came on
westward, left the Mohawk at Utica, and with his family turned northward
into the forest. He made a line of marked trees along the Cincinnati Creek
through the site of Remsen village, and halted and built a log cabin at what
became known later as Burritt's Mills, and afterwards as Bordwell Settlement
now Porpoise Glen. Mr. Cross was an energetic pioneer and he soon had a
piece of land cleared, and built later a wind power grist mill. This was
followed by the erection of a saw mill, both of which were of great utility
to the settlers in that section. Mr. Cross took a cold from getting wet in
the creek, lost his mental balance, and finally died, his death being,
probably, the first in the town.
507
In 1795 three more families came into town; these were John Bonner, Barnabas
Mitchell and Amos Bull. Mr. Bonner was an Englishman, but came in from
Vermont and settled on the lot afterwards owned by Jenkin Jones; later he
moved west. Mr. Mitchell settled on land afterwards owned by his son Milo
Mitchell, and his daughter Polly, who became Mrs. Van Slyke, was the first
white child born in the town. Amos Bull settled on the tract which was long
known as Bull's Commons, and later as the Camp farm; discouraged with the
land and his prospects he removed to Floyd, where he died.
These pioneers were soon followed into the town by Ephraim Hollister, father
in law of Judge Storrs, who followed brick making, and who was elected the
first supervisor of the town.
Stephen Hutchinson and a Mr. King located in the town about this time, and a
daughter of the latter and her husband were probably the first persons
married in the town, about the year 1800. Mr. King kept the first public
house. It is recorded that the first religious service of a public character
was held in Mr. Hutchinson's barn on what became known as the Price farm; he
was the first overseer of the poor of the town.
The site of Remsen village was settled early by Peter Becker, who built a
small log cabin on his hundred acre lot, afterwards selling the property to
deacon Platt, of Steuben. The log cabin was soon afterward burned.
About the same time Joseph Brownell purchased the 100 acre lot on which the
upper tavern was built. He was one of the first three road commissioners of
the town. He soon sold out to Oliver Smith and left the town; Gershom
Hinkley, a practical surveyor, was elected road commissioner in his place.
It was on the farm of the latter at Fairfield Corners that the first school
house in the town was built.
James Smith and his son Joab came into the town about 1795, and the father
opened a tavern in 1797 on the place afterwards occupied by Captain Root;
the son died at Sackett's Harbor in the war of 1812. At about this time the
families of Jacob Dayton, Nathaniel Rockwood, Solomon Gillett, Perez Farr,
Ebenezer Dodd, William Platt, Philip Scott (the first physician in town and
an early town clerk) and Rev. Edmund Tefft, the first resident minister,
settled in the town. The names of other early comers appears further on.
508
This town and those adjoining it in the eastern part of the county are very
largely settled by Welsh. The first of this nationality to locate here was
David Jones, but it is not known in just what year he came. Steuben and
Trenton, adjoining, already contained a large number of these thrifty
citizens. Mr. Jones took up the so called Billings lot, on the Steuben road.
In the year 1803 Broughton White and his brother in law, Lemuel Hough, came
in from the town of Steuben, and Mr. White subsequently opened a small
grocery in a log building on the site of the later store in Remsen village;
it was the first mercantile establishment in the town, and Esquire White's
chief returns for his goods were ashes. He sold out, after making further
improvements, to John Mappa and Jacob Belticher, who in turn transferred it
to Herman Ferry.
The eastern part of the town remained substantially a wilderness until a
number of years after settlement had progressed in the western part. It bore
the local designation of "Ninety six", and the first settlers came in about
1816. About the year 1808 the Welsh families of David Manual, John James,
Griffith I. Jones, John Owens and Hugh Hughes, all from Wales, settled in
the town, and were succeeded by many others who with their descendants
contributed largely to the prosperity of the community. It is recorded that
Griffith O. Griffiths, of Remsen village, now deceased, was the first Welsh
child born in this State west of the Hudson River.
It is unfortunate that the earliest record of this town are lost, but it is known that the first town meeting was held in the year of the town organization, 1798, in the log dwelling of Samuel Howe, at Cross Settlement; Mr. Howe was the first justice of the peace of the town. The list of supervisors of the town, however, is complete, through the record in the Jones Annals; they are:

1857. Lieut. Hananiah Parker. Born ca 1638 at Lynn or Reading, MA. Hananiah died at Reading, MA on 10 Mar 1723/4.15

    "Hananiah Parker settled on land which bordered his fathers farm. (This it seems was situated about a half-mile east of Dea. Thomas Parker's, on the main road from Lynn to Lowell, now Lowell Street in Wakefield, and upon which place Hananiah's descendants, through his son Ebenezer, occupoied and lived for five generations in the Parker name. ...) The assessors' list of 1667 credits him with a house and farm. He was made a freeman Oct. 15, 1679. He belonged to Reading's military company, of which he was chosed ensign in 1680, and lieutenant in 1684. It is evident that his Puritan townsmen had confidence in his ability and character at an early date, for in 1679 he with tow others were given charge of building a new Meeting-house. He was then chosen by the General Court one of the Committee to 'rectifie and settle the highway between Woburn and Reading.' Consider the energy and industry of our ancestor when we say that in addition to the great work of changing the primeval forest to a fertile farm he performed the duties of selectman, town clerk and representative, each for a long period. The military affairs required much of his time, if not active service at certain periods. Traingings were frequent and an absence cost a heavy fine. Every Sunday found him at church, to which he and wife connected themselves very soon after marriage. The Church records mention his name with respect. As a representative of Reading to the General Court at Boston he served seven years. He was a typical Puritan yeoman, the father of a rugged, honorable family of children. He gave thought to the education of the young. In 1707 Lt. Hananiah Parker and Capt. John Browne were appointed committee 'to provide a Scool Master for the towne school.' They reported that John Webb of Braintree 'be chosen to teach reading, writing, casting accounts and the Latin and Greek tongues' for the three months next ensuing."88

Hananiah made a deposition in 1672 stating he was 34 years old (Records and Files of the Quarterly Courts of Essex County, 4:85). He was made a freeman in 1679, and served as selectman, town clerk, and representative of Reading. On 12 Nov 1706 Lieut. Hananiah Parker of Reading deeded to John Eaton of Reading part of the tlot that was Nicholas Browne's (ibid., 27:535). On 13 Jun 1712 John Parker Sr of Reading, joiner (with consent of his wife Deliverance and honored father Lieut. Hanahiah Parker) deeded his homestead to Jonathan Poole of Reading (ibid., 25:161).89

Hananiah's will, dated 20 May 1703, probated 30 Mar 1724, names wife Mary, sons Jon, Samuel, & Ebenezer, daughter Mary Pool, grandchildren, and brother Nathaniel, and gives to son John 3 acres of meadow which was his grandfather Brown's gift to his mother.89

On 30 Sep 1663 Hananiah first married Elizabeth Browne (3331) , daughter of Nicholas Browne (890) (ca 1601-5 Apr 1673) & Elizabeth [Browne] (ca 1605-1 Nov 1674), at Reading, MA.15 Born on 10 Dec 1647 at Reading, MA.47 Elizabeth died at Reading, MA on 27 Feb 1697.15

Researching many names in my family tree and posting them on Rootsweb Family Trees to share as well as posting on genealogy.com and on usgenealogy.com and providing a major focus on Alabama Genealogy and my father's lineage in Kansas.
Researching one's family tree is a long process and and only the ones close to your heart and in your life can be verified in the beginning.

Browsing through the many other family trees on the internet we can find thousands of new cousins, and thankfully there are many census records, cemetery records, etc. available to verify those.

Some may not be verified and need further research. I have ordered a few death certificates, browsed through boxes of our old family photos with names and dates on them, cards, letters, and notebooks, to put this together, yet am quite certain there are still many corrections and additions to come.

Dozens of new cousins have emailed me with some detail about their connection to my lineage and it's been wonderful getting to know you all. Some want me to show them their indian blood which is impossible, I only know my own. I know that my dad was one quarter Cherokee and his sister calls her son Regal Eagle and my mom's great great grandpa Stephens married a full blood Cherokee in SC before his journey to the Dublin / Ramer area where I have visited a few times to do my research. Her great great grandmother Nancy Anderson has two grandmothers from Cherokee blood and maybe more.

Both of my parents had Cherokee blood but it is highly possible there was some other native american blood in their lineage. Many of my mother's ancestors lived among the Creeks in the 1700s and my father's lineage was in Kentucky 1800 where many tribes had migrated, yet soon after, they all began to migrate to Iowa Territory and Indiana, ending up in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

it's been said that my dad's great grandfather John Wright Little refused an indian land allotment however he did uproot his family from their Kentucky roots to migrate to a homestead in Arkansas and his descendants ended up in Alabama.

When I was looking into my husband's line I was told that his mom's grandmother Partridge was an indian from Georgia and I did find her families on census there before they all moved into Elmore County

    Annie Lee Carter changed her name to Anne Alice Carter, because she had no idea that her grandmother was Annie Lee Stone Fenn Carter born about 1875, so she chose to use her own mother's name Alice. Annie Lee Stone might have been the full blood Cherokee we are searching for. Of course Annie Lee Stone might have married a half blood Wm Fenn in 1893 as we see the Cherokee blood runs strong in his mother's line of Harrell.

    Fenn family plot owned by Orr is quite a mystery that surely some of the relatives can resolve. Perhaps Bob Fenn knows since he had Uncle Emmett buried there

When I began working the Sellers lineage of my mother, I found where one of the cousins, Nathaniel Sellers married a Schrimpshire girl and her sister married an Indian Chief Dennis Bushyhead. I have several of those branches !!! In the Sellers case, the Sellers and Andersons already had Indian blood in their line from their grandmothers of North Carolina 1700s. The Scrimpshire father, Martin, had married a Gunter who was full blood Cherokee and they all resided in Guntersville Alabama. One of the Gunters married a McCoy girl but then I found one of my Fenn grandfathers did also!! Mrs Fenn then named a son Travis and he married a girl only known as ?Mary?. which might be another clue.

Then I looked for the parents of Martin Schrimpshire and found his mother was listed online as ?Edith Kona Edna Vann? - lo and behold another famous Cherokee name, which is where I need to study their hometown known as Big Joe Vann?s Spring Place in Georgia.

My own grandfather Cecil Fenn Carter said they were Cherokee and I managed to locate his sister Carrie in Choctaw Nation Oklahoma.  Carrie's husband Ben Johnson was born in Indian Nation, Texas but his mother was an indian from Alabama and his father "denied" her the right to join the Rolls.

Carrie and Cecil had a brother, Frank Jr., who called them "half" siblings so maybe Mr. Carter was the father of them - we will never know !  There are many Carter families online researching their Cherokee blood.  What we do know is that William Fenn born 1855 in Tuskegee Alabama married Anna Lou Stone in 1893 and she left him about 1900 to remarry, but she joined her family in Macon Georgia.  Anna's Uncle Charles Stone named his sons Tecumseh and Osceola.Also when I studied my daughter's Westbrook family, I found their great great grandfather named a son with his second wife, Osceola.

 

Following the path of the old ones.

We lived along Mingo Road in Broken Arrow, Tulsa County, Oklahoma and my dad's parents at one time lived in Chelsea, Rogers County, Oklahoma before settling in Labette, KS.

Many of his family migrated into Arizona near many indian reservations which still exist and we soon joined them living by his Aunt Eunice. Mom's brothers visited often and one owned a roofing company in Enid, OK while the other lived in North Carolina, where his wife's grandfather was a pastor in the Cherokee Reservation.

We lived amongst people of all colors and heard many different languages and took note of various traditions.

My parents were Annie Carter and Frankie Cochran and there are many names in their ancestry. I am also researching the ancestors of my husband, Charles Brooks. and saving it all on various webpages. and creating my own internet family webring and searchbox so that any of our relatives can be looked up. There are many free webspace providers online, like Rootsweb.com or angelfire.com therefore I have many links to peruse.

Along with collecting family stories and documents, I am also researching the military records, finding several who served in the Civil War. and several listed in the DAR catalog online.

Now with tons of census records and documents, I am researching their hometowns, trying to learn more about their neighbors and their lifestyle.

www.accessgenealogy.comHas tons of records, Indian rolls, military and many other free records, biographies and images .

One thing in researching our ancestors, nearly every line was honored to have someone Who served in the American Revolution and then another in the Civil War, as well as Other military services. These records are available on the internet.

Most are able to find one relative on the Trail Of Tears but none of mine yet.  They married whites and lived as white.

Many were lost to diseases, fevers, other epidemics and many were orphaned, had legal guardians, adopted or just took up with another family.

Some famous names were in South Carolina living near my families, Rogers, McQueen, Weatherford, McIntosh, McGillvary, Gist, wasn?t Sequoyah?s father a Guist? There was even a non cousin Cynthia Parker kidnapped in the 1800s by an Indian and she gave birth to the next Indian chief Quannah Parker. Amazing history even with common names. Many of my surnames are found in Indian Nation Oklahoma, just not my direct line.

I did find my grandpa Frank D. Cochran and his wife Luella in 1920 census living near Will Rogers in Chelsea, Rogers County, Oklahoma, near many other Coonfields who did marry Indians. Will Rogers became a famous actor and Indian chief. His father Clement had come from South Carolina into Tennessee. Great reading. My parents were living in Broken Arrow on Mingo Road in Tulsa Oklahoma when I was born. Mother was tracing her roots even back then. Her brother Billy Carter loved Indian Country and remained in Enid Oklahoma for many years.

There were several Rogers families around my Bozemans in South Carolina who migrated to Alabama in the 1820s, while Alabama was still a wilderness full of beasts and several Indian tribes.

Usgenweb.com has each state listed and offers a ton of old stuff to read and study and of course the census records online at ancestry or heritage quest help locate the families, with dates and ages, and place of birth, but then you get to see their neighbors and often times, the neighbors were family members.

When I found George Little in Kentucky, two of his sons lived by him, two of his married daughters, then his in laws and as each decade passed, there were many more to find near them who had also intermarried into the lineage.

He was born 1733...age 21 when he came to America ( 1754 ) married and then 10 children.....was in war 1776 at age 43 for two years in the Third Regiment of the Colonial Army..was Sargent, Lieutenant, then Captain until Tarleton's men shot him in the hip causing disability......on 1790 census with 10 others in household...

His son Jonas Little married Betsy Douglass and then George married Betsy?s widowed mother, Mary Handley Douglass. Jonas named a son Douglass Little and one Hiram Little, then having several other children all born in Kentucky around 1820. The Wright sisters came along and married

Hiram and Douglass. The mother of the Wright girls was Catherine Weatherford, a daughter of Charles Weatherford, born in Charlotte Virginia to Mary Half Blood. Of all the many Weatherfords I have researched during that era, he is the only one I have found who could have moved to Alabama and married Sehoy. The father of Charles was Martin Weatherford , a wealthy planter who surely made his mark in history, being banned from the state of Georgia and fled to the Bahamas. The son of Charles was William Weatherford, or Chief Red Eagle, and those Creek Indians were all over south Alabama, but then I found many other of my relatives around south Alabama and wonder, was there Creek blood in my line?  Why were so many of our ancestors moving into the indian nation.

Grandpa William Fenn was born in Tuskegee Alabama, former Creek Nation. His wife Anna Stone was also born in Macon County , former Creek Nation, but their son said he was Cherokee. When the parents and grandparents of the Fenns and Stones are studied in early Georgia around 1700s, they were among Creek and Cherokee. William told his children that the baby, Cecil ( my grandfather ) was only their ?half? sibling. Anna divorced William and moved back to Macon Georgia and married a Carter - Cecil used that name and never used the Fenn name, even though he visited them often.

William had managed his cousin?s Fenn Plantation in Eufaula for many years and many slaves and Indians had worked the crops - perhaps one was the Carter man? This we will never know. Barbour County history mentions the plantation owner Matthew Fenn who had left Georgia and bought up hundreds of acres of land in Alabama.

Cecil was said to have been a mean husband to my granny Alice McClain, that he would get drunk and beat her, causing her death, once she delivered her third child. Then he drank himself to death only a few years after. The children were raised by the McClains and probably never met the Fenns until they had grown to adulthood. They had a very poor difficult life and were teased and taunted about being Indians.

When I began interviewing people about the McClains and Bozemans of Ramer I found that the Bozeman men were also rough with their women. Lorena?s father married 4 times but only two had children with him. One left him soon after the marriage. They were cotton farmers and also had a poor life, with very little education. It is said that the Bozeman ancestors who had settled in Hope Hull lost everything due to the Civil War.

Anne Alice Carter married Frankie Lavern Cochran in 1951 and was blessed to have such a good honest hard working man. His mother was Luella Coonfield Cochran and she told her children that she was ? Cherokee blood. Her mother was Lattie Little who had married Ben Coonfield in Arkansas and granny Lattie said they had mixed blood from another tribe as well.

On one census record about 1910 Lattie?s grandfather Abraham Crigler is living with them - he had become widowed in Kentucky when his wife Catherine Roby passed away. Lattie?s father John Wright Little had made that same move several years prior, when his wife, Catherine Crigler died.

Family lore has it that John was offered a land allotment in Oklahoma?s Indian Territory and he refused it. He was a blacksmith in the Civil War and I have his military records. John is now buried on some unknown mountain top in Arkansas.

Starting my husband?s genealogy, I found my cousin Wayne Bozeman married to Charlie?s cousin Sue Carol - her mother was a Thornton and told her kids that their granny Mary Angeline Partridge Thornton was an Indian out of Georgia, who settled into Central, Elmore County, Alabama. They lived at Cold Springs. When you visit Central, you find Lake Martin and Kowaliga, where the old wooden indian stands by the restaurant near the open church in the pines, a beautiful area.

I found their great grandpa Brooks married in Tennessee to Annie Clark Ballard. Annie had only one child, James, who married Mamaw - Susie Mae Cooper. Susie?s grandfather was Thomas R Carter of South Carolina, born 1820, and his first wife was a Bozeman. Thomas had bought a small piece of land from my Bozeman grandfather at Hope Hull off McLean Road. That farm was once 160 acre cotton plantation owned by American Revolution Patriot Peter Bozeman born 1755 North Carolina, who was in Darlington South Carolina 1800 where he was given a few hundred acres for his service in the war. Peter and several other families had moved to Hope Hull so the census of 1830 Alabama resembles the 1820 census of Darlington.

They had Alabama Fever!

The land of cotton, corn and faith.

 

There are many books I have found to include my ancestors and surely there are many more to be discovered.  Some pages are scanned and placed in my webpages to verify their place in time.

My daughter's Marriage into the Westbrook family, now there are many new names to study like Grauer, Glass, Holt, Braswell, Penton, Jones, Holly. Daddy, Charles Brooks had dozens and dozens of ancestors migrating into Alabama in the early 1800s. Joseph Baxley born 1815 Georgia or possibly as some speculate, in SC., married Mary Evans and named a son James H. - the tombstone of James has the middle name as Hardie. James served in the Civil War and married Louisa Miranda Holt and resided in "Holtville". Their daughter Ella Olivia Baxley married L. W. Hood and had Bessie Mae Hood who married Milton Elijah Thornton. Elijah's parents were Mary Angeline Partridge, an indian, and George Thornton, a mixed blood from Georgia, who had settled in Central, Elmore County, Alabama. Elijah's daughter, Mary Ella Thornton married James Edgar Brooks Jr. Parents of James were Susie Mae Cooper and James E Brooks Sr. James and Susie are listed on the 1930 census with both their widowed mothers. Susie's ancestors were in Chambers County about 1830: Andrew Cooper and "Alsey" from SC living near Malinda Phillips and Elijah Lee born 1777 SC. Their children Sarah F. Lee married Charner P. Cooper, a soldier from the Civil War, and had a son named Levi who moved to Hope Hull working on a farm owned by Thomas Randolph Carter, where he fell in love with the daughter, Sarah Elizabeth Carter. Parents of Thomas were "Mary" and John Wise Carter of SC who had migrated to Talledega. Thomas is buried in Hope Hull on his old plantation by his first wife Lacy Jane Bozeman. Her name was Lucy on census but Lacy on her tombstone. Thomas served in the Civil War and his grandfather Captain John Carter served in the American Revolution, along with his own father in law, John Wise of South Carolina....The second wife of Thomas Carter was Mary Josephine Hereferd of Virginia and she was the mother of Sarah Elizabeth Carter...Mary was not very happy with this marriage and had only the one child. She buried Thomas by his first wife. Some of Mary's family settled in Alabama and some moved on to Texas. Mary's mother was Jemima Ramsey of Virginia..Parents of James Brooks were Annie Ballard and John Brooks of Tennesse and they are all buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Montgomery Alabama. John was a railroad man, born to Roxanna Permilia Smith of TN and a John Brooks born 1837 Pennsylvania. John 1837 died of tuberculosis in Texas. Parents of Roxanna were Caroline Bond and Thomas Smith. Parents of Annie Ballard were Dora Craig and James Ballard of TN. Some of these families migrated into Tennessee about 1800 from the Carolinas living amongst the Cherokee Indians and Chickasaw so they could have been mixed blood. Annie's picture shows she was a dark lady with black eyes and black hair and so was her husband's features very dark but I would suspect his from the Smith side of the family....

    Our Relatives

Welcome!
 
By 1700 in North Carolina were born several families of Sellers, Anderson, Bozeman and Brack, while the state was still mostly Indian Nation.  Other family histories indicate most took an indian bride.  Most are recognized by the DAR for their service in the American Revolution.  Many of their neighbors are famous in Native American History.
 
Many of the sons and grandsons served in several battles, like the War of 1812, migrated into Georgia, and were in Alabama 1820s.  When the lands of Texas opened to the whites, a few migrated and some returned to Alabama.  Many served in the Civil War, along with Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee and Jackson.
 
Probate Records and Military Records along with Census Images verify their footprints in time.
 

The Campaign of 1860 was a campaign that would decide the United States fate. There were two main candidates, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas; Buchanan had retired from public service. The South had said if Abraham Lincoln won the Campaign of 1860 and became the next President they would withdraw from the Union. Abraham Lincoln won the Presidency in 1860, having won two-thirds of the electoral votes, but he only had forty percent of the popular vote.

President Abraham Lincoln had quite a bit to deal with: within the first four months of him becoming President seven states had already seceded from the Union, letting him know that he was not wanted as President. But Lincoln had a job to do: his main interest at this point was keeping the Union together, and he did not have any real concerns about abolishing slavery.

When the southern states of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas seceded they formed the Confederate States. The Confederate states had set out to attack Fort Sumter in 1861. Lincoln tried to halt this attempt by ordering the navy to blockade southern ports, this preventing the trade of the South’s moneymaker, cotton. This also prevented the South from obtaining manufactured goods it needed from the North, goods that were essential such as guns and clothing the South could not produce for itself. The beginning of the war forced four more states to reluctantly join the Confederacy.

Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Arkansas felt they had no other choice, due to the fact they also were slave states.

The main problem the South had was that they did not have a Unified Army. They had regional pride: each state or region would have their own small army, and there was not a lot of unification. But they soon got their act together; when the first real battle of the Civil War took place at a creek called, Bull Run, the Confederates surprised the Union. Under the leadership of General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, the Confederate army soon sent the Union running back to Washington. With this defeat the Northerners realized that this was not just a rebellion that would be easily defeated, this was WAR.

After loosing the battle of Bull Run, Lincoln changed generals; his new appointed General was George B. McClellan. During the summer of 1862, General Robert Lee and General George McClellan met, again at Bull Run; this meeting would mean a second victory for the Confederate Army at Bull Run. Then Lee moved onward North, into the Union State of Maryland. In Maryland is where the Battle of Antietam occurred. This is considered one of the bloodiest days of the Civil War. Both the Union and Confederate armies suffered great losses. This was barely a victory for the Union army, but it was a victory. With this loss Lee retreated back towards the South, the Union gave chase but was not quick enough to catch them.

With the victory at Antietam, Lincoln choose this time to deliver The Emancipation Proclamation: this executive order freed the slaves in the areas that rebellion was established, but it did not free the slaves in the Union slave states or in areas that the Union recaptured. At this point, the point of the war completely changed from preservation of the Union to the abolition of slavery.

Lincoln also decided to change generals again: he was not satisfied with the performance of McClellan, nor was he satisfied with the next two generals, General Ambrose Burnside and General Joseph Hooker: neither of these really wanted the job. Finally, Lincoln appointed General George Meade, very soon after his appointment there came the bloodiest, most gruesome battle of the Civil War, Gettysburg. This battle was fought on July 1, 1863: it was a hard battle, and it became a Union victory, with more than forty-five thousand men killed and wounded. It was a devastating site for both Meade and Lee, General Lee had lost almost two-third of his entire army, and Meade had lost one-forth of his. Their thoughts were focused on that there were so many dead for the cause.

Lincoln chose this time to travel to Gettysburg to deliver what is now known as the Gettysburg Address. The address was 272 words long, and did not mention slavery, the battle or the Union Army. It was widely accepted by all people.

After Gettysburg, Lincoln had decided to change Generals again. This time his choice was Ulysses S. Grant, his best change for the Union yet. Grant was a fighter, he captured important Confederate forts in Tennessee and led the Union army in a battle at Vicksburg and won. Then Grant’s only thought was getting Lee and Richmond. This was the beginning of the end, with William Tecumseh Sherman destroying the Confederate’s way of getting materials to fight the war by destroying railroads, factories and its plantations. He was breaking the spirit of the Confederacy: when Sherman burned Atlanta it was all but over. Grant surrounded Richmond and it fell to the Union army on April 3,1865. Lee surrendered and it was a mournful day for the Confederacy: the Union had stripped it of its most valued treasure, their PRIDE, and the Confederacy was on its knees, they thought, never to rise again.

Just twelve days after the surrender of Lee, President Lincoln was attending a show at the Ford Theater, where he was fatally wounded. He died on April 15, 1865.

 

Ironically Booth performed a few times at the theatre in downtown Montgomery according to the Historical Marker on Perry Street.

 

The idol of the South to this day, Virginian Robert E. Lee had some difficulty in adjusting to the new form of warfare that unfolded with the Civil war, but this did not prevent him from keeping the Union armies in Virginia at bay for almost three years. The son of Revolutionary War hero "Light Horse" Harry Lee-who fell into disrepute in his later years attended West Point and graduated second in his class. During his four years at the military academy he did not earn a single demerit and served as the cadet corps' adjutant. Upon his 1829 graduation he was posted to the engineers. Before the Mexican War he served on engineering projects in Georgia, Virginia, and New York. During the war he served on the staffs of John Wool and Winfield Scott. Particularly distinguishing himself scouting for and guiding troops, he won three brevets and was slightly wounded at Chapultepec.

My research includes an Elijah Lee born 1777 migrated into Chambers County Alabama about 1820.

END OF PART 2.
 
In part 3 ,I want to discuss sisters Lavinia and Elizabeth Anderson who
married Sellers brothers. Each had Cherokee Blood on the paternal and
maternal side. They had two grandmothers who were of the Cherokee Tribe on
their fathers side that made their Father half Cherokee. They also had
Cherokee blood on their mother's side too,having at least one grandmother
of Cherokee orgin,making their grandmother Lavinia Brack at least one
quarter blood Cherokee.
------------------------------------
Mary--this just caught my eye--I have a ggrandma Jennie Ann Anderson,
ggrandpa made her mad by calling her Black Dutch. My dad said she would
be ready to kill when he called her that. Did this record give the names
of the two Anderson girls ancestors, did they have a brother to pass the
name down?

Wright as William Sellers of Tarboro NC.saying he was the father of Elisha
Sellers.
Elisha Sellers ,the next generation,was the father of Alfred Sellers and
William Calvin Sellers Sr.,b. ca.1760 NC.d.NC.
William Calvin Sellers Sr,(1) entered the Revolutionary War at the age of
16 and fought for 6 years and at one time was a prisoner of The
Tories.Similar records were found on Elisha Sellers,and several persons
have joined the DAR on his records.
An article in Memorial Records Of Ala. states that William Calvin Sellers
Sr. lived to be 100 years old,also that he died in NC.
His widow came to Ala. William Calvin Sellers Jr. and Alfred Sellers,who
married Elizabeth Anderson the sister of Lavinia ,who marriedWilliam Calvin
Jr,

William Calvin Sellers II,was born ca.1750,went to Griffen,Ga.and later to
LowndesCo. Ala.settling at Morganville. William Calvin and Alfred Sellers
married in Jefferson Co.Ga. to sisters Lavinia and Elizabeth Anderson"
(There appears to be some confusion between the William Calvin Jr and
Sr.with regard to their births,because the next info gives conflicting
data:)

END OF PART 2.
 
In part 3 ,I want to discuss sisters Lavinia and Elizabeth Anderson who
married Sellers brothers. Each had Cherokee Blood on the paternal and
maternal side. They had two grandmothers who were of the Cherokee Tribe on
their fathers side that made their Father half Cherokee. They also had
Cherokee blood on their mother's side too,having at least one grandmother
of Cherokee orgin,making their grandmother Lavinia Brack at least one
quarter blood Cherokee. Alfred Sellers himself may have had Cherokee Blood
too. His paternal grandmother Mary Willis was probably a member of the
Cherokee tribe,and his ggrandmother may have been a full blood Chrokee .
Her name is unknown
 
Here is a brief direct lineage on the Anderson side ,beginning with the
earliest known by Carl V. Wright
1. Edmond Anderson,b.? m.?NC, Sarah (probably full blood cherokee
Cherokee-not proven)d,1742N.C.
2.Elmore Anderson ,b.1720m;Rebbeca Holmes (probably halfblooded
Cherokee)d.1772 N.C.
3.Elijah Anderson ,b.1750 Onslow Co. N.C.m; Lavinia Brack (1/2 blood)d/o
Eleazor Brack and Ester Doty,1802,Jefferson Co.Ga.
4. Elizabeth Anderson,b.1796{probably Richmond Co. Ga} m; 2 Dec
1818,Jefferson Co. Ga.to Alfred Sellers d.1856.Coosa Co. Ala.
5. James Wesley Sellers b. 1823 Jefferson Co. Ga.
Steve says: I will mention that it is thru Lavinia Brack and her Mother
Ester Doty that we can trace our line back to Edward Doty ,of the
Mayflower,and thence to the European lines of royalty back 33 generations
to "Alfred The Great"and even earlier. Also the Holmes line is traceable
back in Europe over 14 more generations,but all this is clearly beyond the
scope of email messages of this sort.
I would hope you will provide me with a descendant genealogy of your
husband's family from James Wesley Sellers to your family.
 
Lou that is about all I have gotten from Steve, I will try to contact him
again. I did send him a package like I sent to you,with no comment as of
yet, So maybe he isn't done with the census work he has been doing.

Levinia Anderson's sister Elizabeth married a Sellers also ( Alfred ). Alfred is found named at some of those old Estate Sales.
 
In part 3 ,I want to discuss sisters Lavinia and Elizabeth Anderson who
married Sellers brothers. Each had Cherokee Blood on the paternal and
maternal side. They had two grandmothers who were of the Cherokee Tribe on
their fathers side that made their Father half Cherokee. They also had
Cherokee blood on their mother's side too,having at least one grandmother
of Cherokee orgin,making their grandmother Lavinia Brack at least one
quarter blood Cherokee. Alfred Sellers himself may have had Cherokee Blood
too. His paternal grandmother Mary Willis was probably a member of the
Cherokee tribe,and his ggrandmother may have been a full blood Chrokee .
Her name is unknown
 
Here is a brief direct lineage on the Anderson side ,beginning with the
earliest known by Carl V. Wright
1. Edmond Anderson,b.? m.?NC, Sarah (probably full blood cherokee
Cherokee-not proven)d,1742N.C.
2.Elmore Anderson ,b.1720m;Rebbeca Holmes (probably halfblooded
Cherokee)d.1772 N.C.
3.Elijah Anderson ,b.1750 Onslow Co. N.C.m; Lavinia Brack (1/2 blood)d/o

Researching one's family tree is a long process and and only the ones close to your heart and in your life can be verified in the beginning.

Browsing through the many other family trees on the internet we can find thousands of new cousins, and thankfully there are many census records, cemetery records, etc. available to verify those.

Some may not be verified and need further research. I have ordered a few death certificates, browsed through boxes of our old family photos with names and dates on them, cards, letters, and notebooks, to put this together, yet am quite certain there are still many corrections and additions to come.

Dozens of new cousins have emailed me with some detail about their connection to my lineage and it's been wonderful getting to know you all. Some want me to show them their indian blood which is impossible, I only know my own. I know that my dad was one quarter Cherokee and his sister calls her son Regal Eagle and my mom's great great grandpa Stephens married a full blood Cherokee in SC before his journey to the Dublin / Ramer area where I have visited a few times to do my research. Her great great grandmother Nancy Anderson has two grandmothers from Cherokee blood and maybe more.

Both of my parents had Cherokee blood but it is highly possible there was some other native american blood in their lineage. Many of my mother's ancestors lived among the Creeks in the 1700s and my father's lineage was in Kentucky 1800 where many tribes had migrated, yet soon after, they all began to migrate to Iowa Territory and Indiana, ending up in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

it's been said that my dad's great grandfather John Wright Little refused an indian land allotment however he did uproot his family from their Kentucky roots to migrate to a homestead in Arkansas and his descendants ended up in Alabama.

When I was looking into my husband's line I was told that his mom's grandmother Partridge was an indian from Georgia and I did find her families on census there before they all moved into Elmore County.
