About Our Family Research


Named after my great grandmother Lorena Bozeman McClain who was born in 1890 Ramer, Montgomery, Alabama, I have thoroughly enjoyed writing about this great lady and her heritage.

After my parents passed away and my husband died of cancer, I began to write about them and their family trees when I was unable to sleep.

Our families have traveled many miles and intertwined in the same communities, some knowing each other, many moons ago.

Lorena was named after her mother Alice Lorena Stephens and the story was that Alice's great grandfather was in the American Revolution and married to a full blood Cherokee, giving her a Biblical name. Indian unrest was so bad in the Carolinas, they packed up and moved to Dublin and Ramer in Alabama. Records indicate there were several Stephens Plantations in that area once, near many other migrating families like Broadway, Bozeman, Gibson, Timmons, Dillard, Money, Hill, Gardener, McClain, Anderson, Sellers, with most of their children intermarrying
.

My daddy, Frankie Lavern Cochran born 1927 Chetopa Kansas, baptised in a creek at the age of 12, was married in 1951 to Anne Alice Carter who was born in 1934 at Montgomery Alabama. His parents were Frank Delbert Cochran of Hill City, Graham, Kansas and Luella Ellen Coonfield of Benton, Arkansas.

Frank Delbert's parents were Clora Jane Miller of Illinois and Jacob Benjamin Cochran of Ohio and he served in the Civil War, then moved to Iowa for several years

Parents of Jacob were Martha Henderson and Alexander Cochran of Ohio

Parents of Clora were Mary Clara Parker and James Miller.

Parents of Mary were Sara Tefft and Archelaus Parker of New York

Luella Coonfield's parents were Lattie Cedonia Little of Kentucky and Benjamin Wallace Coonfield of Arkansas and he served in the Civil War.

Lattie's parents were Mary Catherine Crigler and John Wright Little of Kentucky

Benjamin's parents were Martha Frances Young and Benjamin Wylie Coonfield of Indiana.

Anne's parents were Emily Alice McClain and Cecil Earl Fenn Carter of Montgomery. Anne named a daughter Kathy Lorena who was born in Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Oklahoma..

Cecil Earl Carter's parents were Annie Lou Stone and William Franklin Fenn of Bullock County Alabama who divorced about 1900 and remarried later, so Cecil was adopted.

Parents of Anna were Mary Ann Hendrick and Augustus Marvin Stone

Parents of William were Emeline Harrell and John Fenn of Georgia

Alice McClain's parents were Charles Allen McClain of Ramer.

Charles McClain's parents were Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain and he served in the Civil War.

Parents of Elizabeth were Mary Stephens and Abner Broadway

Lorena's parents were Alice Lorena Stephens ( who's father served in the Civil War ) and John Thomas Bozeman.

John's parents were Nancy Jane Anderson and Peter Edward Bozeman who also served in the Civil War.

Anne named a daughter Kathy Lorena who was born in Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Oklahoma..

Kathy married Charles Wayne Brooks, the son of Mary Ella Thornton and James Edgar Brooks.

Parents of Mary Ella were Bessie Mae Hood and Milton Elijah Thornton. Parents of Bessie were Ella Olivia Baxley ( who's father, James, served in the Civil War) and L W. Hood of Elmore County.

Milton's parents were Mary Angeline Partridge and George Thornton of Georgia.

Parents of James Brooks Jr. were Susie Mae Cooper and James Edgar Brooks of Montgomery.

Susie's parents were Sarah Elizabeth Carter and Levi Benjamin Cooper, both had fathers serving in the Civil War

Sarah's parents were Mary Josephine Herreferd of Virginia and Thomas Randolph Carter who was previously married to Lacy Jane Bozeman of Hope Hull.

Levi Cooper had worked on the farm of Carter - Levi's parents were Sarah F. Lee and Charner P. Cooper of Chambers County.

Parents of James Brooks Sr were Annie Clark Ballard and John Edwin Brooks of Tennessee.

Parents of Annie were Dora Craig and James Cal Ballard of Tennessee.

Dora's parents were Rebecca Carolina Pennington and William Craig

Parents of John Brooks were Roxanna Permilia Smith of Tennessee and John Brooks of Pennyslvania and his father Hans was from Holland.

Roxanna's parents were Caroline Bond and Thomas Smith

My genealogy is about all of these families and where they came from. Most had grandfathers who served in the American Revolution

My search box is for my webpages only so if you type in a name, everything that I have worked up should appear.

Happy Hunting!!!

    some of Ben's siblings are born in Indian Territory but he shows born in Texas - all citizens are listed as white. There is another Johnson family living next to them.

  • 1920 Carrie Fenn in Alabama with her father (701 KB)
    on Commerce Street with her stepmother Eva, we do not know why Carrie/ Carolyn never lived with her own mother, but her father was ill and she stayed. Her brother Emmett is also there but we do not know why they show his middle initial as J when his middle name was Marvin, but census officials were not perfect and if Eva was the person giving out the information, she probably had no clue. Eva Dakota Fenn was very young too !!

The researchers of his son John claim that John was half Cherokee so the other sons would also be half blood. This makes sense since nothing is known about his wife and his marriage is not recorded anywhere thus far - some speculate that his wife was called Elizabeth

      Sarah Lee and Charner Cooper married - he served in the Civil War and their son Levi moved to Montgomery and worked on the farm of Thomas R. Carter and fell in love with Carter's daughter Sarah, whom he married and had a daughter named Susie Mae Cooper. They came from the Lee and Cooper families of Chambers County and lived not far from each other. Family says that Elijah Lee might have bought his land from a Creek Indian and they surely lived in Creek Indian Territory.

    Ancestors and Descendents of.....

    Luella was born 2/8/1897 in Benton County Arkansas
    and died 5/11/1945 in a Kansas City Missouri Hospital
    after an 80 day stay that we were told was cancer related;
    some say she died from surgical mistakes made at a previous hospital.

    She was married to Frank Delbert Cochran

    Her parents were Benjamin Wallace Coonfield and Lattie Cedonia Little.

    I never knew my grandma Luella but heard many wonderful stories about her. Dad talked of watching her sit in the fields for hours filling her apron with herbs, polk, whatever was good for the family. She was a strong, loving lady who came from a long line of pioneers and soldiers and worked hard to care for her loved ones and teach them honor and respect. Dad also said her long black hair reached the floor when she brushed it out. Luella was very spiritual and kept many handwritten notes in her Bible, which was handed down to her by her mother.

    Possibly some of those notes were written by her parents.

    Luella was one quarter Cherokee plus some Creek. It's been said that some of her Wright cousins were offered land allotments in the Oklahoma Indian Territory, but this author has not yet recovered any documentation of it.

    Many of the surnames in this family are found on the Indian Rolls in Oklahoma, yet a direct connection to this line has not been found.

  • 1810 Alexander Cochran in Gettysburg Township (162 KB)
    located in Adams County, PA with 14 family members and searching the census pages near him I find NO familiar names other than a Thomas Cochran with 13 family members. Names of wife and children were not added to these census records so one can only speculate unless they locate a will in the state's will book for more evidence of this man's legacy.

    Peter and Thomas are found here. Thomas may be the father of Sarah Sturgeon who married John Clendenning. I tried to trace the parents of Thomas and his mother Sarah Ferguson and believe that her father was a Thomas Ferguson found in the area. Alexander Douglass is on this page too!
  • 1790 Alexander Cochran in Mifflin PA (147 KB)
    this shows he has 11 children in 1790 ?? This census record only shows head of household and not where he came from, so we can assume he is from Scotland or from Ireland - maybe a large family came over the sea or perhaps the other family trees online are only made up from speculation. In the 1800s there were dozens of Alexanders in census records and dozens more of the Williams so they could all possibly be related to this one Alexander. It would be very difficult for anyone to be certain of the connections to this one man.
  • 1800 Molley Douglass (283 KB)
    Edgefield SC - since I ran across Alexander Douglass with the Sturgeons, I felt like finding his wife after he passed away. IF this is our Mary Molley, she has not yet married George Little - Remember that her husband went on a survey with Molley's brother John Handley to Kentucky and was murdered on the way back to Pennsylvania - she feared the Indians and left.

    hard to find Clendenning on census records but people often changed the spelling of their names - Nancy Clendenning married a William Henderson about 1797 in PA....some were found in North Carolina and I wonder if they migrated to Pennsylvania....the search continues for this line.

    The first Home Steaders of the City, arriving from Iowa Territory after many years in Guernsey Ohio.

    Jacob and his first wife with six daughters appeared on the 1870 census of Iowa, then his second wife on the 1880, as they prepared for the long journey south.

    Much of their families lived near them and some even followed Jacob to Kansas.

    Some of his children and grandchildren and great grands remain in Kansas while some ventured elsewhere and began a vast lineage of their own in Arizona, California, Colorado,Missouri, Oklahoma and Alabama.

    From Bullock County Alabama to Montgomery, Carrie married after 1920 to Ben Johnson of Choctaw Nation, Texas. They are found on the 1930 census of Creek, Oklahoma.

    Her parents were Anna Stone and Wm Frank Fenn who had married in 1893 Bullock County and they had six children before divorcing soon after the 1900 census, where Anna joined her parents in Macon, Bibb, Georgia. Carrie was the first born child, then Frank Jr., Arthur, Robert, Emmett, and Cecil who claimed to be Cherokee. They were all very tall, dark and handsome. Family lore is that Frank Jr., told his children that Carrie and Cecil were only his "half" sibling.....

    Ben's parents were America Emeline Mills and Nathaniel B. Johnson of Alabama, who moved around a lot, into Arkansas, and into Texas, where the census indicates some children born in Indian Territory. Some of Nathaniel's siblings may have also been born in Indian Territory.

    Nat named a daughter Ellen after his sister.

    Ellen Gray Johnson, b July 12,1856 Springfield Alabama, d April 26,1952 Monument, Lea County New Mexico, she married William Fletcher Weir, on Dec 16,1881, Brady , Mc Culloch County Texas( I have original Certificate) William Weir wa sborn Dec 19,1854 Polk Missouri, d August 8 ,1937 Monument , lea County Texas, they lived in Texas until early 1906 , when they went by covered wagon with their 8 children to Lea County NM, William purchased the famous, historical Hat Ranch.

    Nat also had a sister named Louisa Powell.

    Nathaniel's mother was Mary Ann Macon and her ancestors had something to do with the founding of Macon County Alabama. Ironically Carrie Fenn's father was also born in Tuskegee, Macon County, Alabama.

    The story of Ben returning to Alabama is unknown. It is also unknown how he met our Aunt Carrie. They had only one child, a daughter named Dorothy and how her name is special to them, is another mystery to uncover.

    Brooks Families of the South.

    ......Hans Brooke had three boys and one girl....Henry, Edward, John and Lula Christine....They settled in Reading PA. The parents died leaving minor children, and the little girl was adopted...John, our grandfather, was bound out to a tailor to learn that trade....He was very unhappy and ran away, arriving in Columbia TN about 1860 and we find him on the Giles County 1860 census in TN working as a tailor but as John Brooks...That year he married Roxanna Permilia Smith

    She was just breaking up with her other boyfriend, Doctor Crittendon Smith and fell in love with John Brooks...John and RP had Walter and Nora before joining a wagon train to Texas where John, Lula, Nimrod and Tom were born......

    ...John died in 1882 of tuberculosis and is buried in Paris TX. Roxanna went back to TN to marry Doctor Terry Crittendon Smith. He actually heard she was widowed and went to Texas to marry her and bring her back to TN. They lived and died in Sandy Hook, Tennessee.

    Their son John married Annie Clark Ballard and had only one child, James Edgar Brooks - soon they moved to Montgomery Alabama.

    The Smith and Ballard families came out of North Carolina about 1800 migrating into Tennessee's Indian Territory.

    Permilia named her first son Walter Brooks, and this author finds no Walter in the lineage,so why use this name? and another son JOHN Edwin but the census looks like his middle initial was H., and JOHN married Annie Clark Ballard in TN and they moved to Alabama being transferred with the railroad and then lived on Adams Avenue near the train station. Annie had only one child, James Edgar Brooks, who became a bookkeeper with the State, and later married Susie Mae Cooper who soon named her own son James Edgar Brooks Jr., a daughter Christine . Susie was the daughter of Sarah Elizabeth Carter and Levi Benjamin Cooper of Chambers County AL.

    Annie's photo shows dark black hair and coal black eyes. Annie's parents were both born in Tennessee, James Calvin Ballard and Willie Eudora Craig but their ancestors migrated from the Carolinas. "Dora's" mother was Rebecca Caroline Pennington and she married William Craig in 1860. Rebecca's mother was only known as "Gracy" who married William Pennington, and his mother was only known as "Kezziah" born about 1750 in South Carolina.

    Her mother was Caroline Bond, daughter of a John Baptist Bond of North Carolina. Parents of Caroline Bond ( who married 3 times? ) were John Baptist Bond and Kitty Stone. Many researchers are looking into the Stone name as being of Cherokee Blood.

    In Georgia was Joseph Baxley born 1815 married to Mary Evans and making their way into Alabama. Their son James married Louisa Miranda Holt and they resided in "Holtville" in Elmore County AL. Also in Elmore County was L. W. Hood who married their daughter Ella Olivia Baxley. Ella's daughter Bessie married a Milton Elijah Thornton in Elmore County. Elijah's parents also came out of Georgia, Mary Angeline Partridge amd George Thornton. Elijah's daughter Mary Ella married James Brooks. Mary Ella's granddaughter married Westbrook.

    "I have Cherokee blood in me. I have just enough white blood for you to question my honesty!"Will Rogers


    With so many families in former Creek Nation Alabama, it is quite possible we are mixed.

    Frankie was honest, hard working and faithful, grew up on a farm, some education until he joined the Air Force. Baptised in a creek in Chetopa Kansas and read his Bible every day. His word was law and his friends knew that he always had a place at the dinner table for them or an extra chair by the fish pond.

    He served in Korea as a copilot of a bomber plane and was wounded and sent back to Maxwell AFB in Alabama where he then told his brother Freelon that it was too hot for him to go there and Freelon went to Korea anyway and died in a truck incident.

    Several in my family have had special gifts, the gift of knowing and seeing, the gift of healing or the ability to stop bleeding. Dad had several true premonitions and the night before he passed away, he held me in his arms saying I love you more than you will ever know and he was gone on that Christmas morning.

    His sister was born with a veil over her face. His aunt heard ticking in the wall before a loved one died. His granny Clora smoked a pipe and could read the ashes. He witnessed many healings by my mom's granny and he was very close to her. Most made their own medicines. He spoke of his mother spending hours in the field gathering herbs.

    He found peace at the fish pond, that is where he could be found on the weekends and I feel now that he is at peace with his elders and loved ones while guiding me along this journey of love.

    Little Family Tree Research :
    all things connected to Captain George Little of Scotland. There has been much speculation as to the birth dates of his children with a Scottish wife, Mary. My thoughts from browsing the 1790 Union District census records are:
    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....I would suspect that since I find no record of all of his daughters and their husbands that it is possible some married and stayed home to take care of the ailing father.

    Wouldnt his wife be too old for childbirth after the war?

    1790 census shows a Jonas, John, Joseph each in their own household...are they his children or brothers or no relation? They have children!! If Jonas did not marry Betsy Douglass until she was 18, perhaps he had a previous marriage...However if OUR Jonas Little was not born until 1780, as indicated on Laura Little's DAR lineage report, then the guy we see on the 1790 census is "someone else". I personally think that she estimated his date of birth as so many did back then.

    Joseph and John Jr are in Colonel Brandon's regiment in 1790 so he is obviously married with family long before they all moved away from SC into TN and KY. So Joseph could have been born around 1750 and his brother's son about 1770 for them both to be in a 1790 regiment ! John shows 9 family members in his household so he's at least been married 10 years.

    So the estimated birth dates on other family trees have to be incorrect - these men had to be born before the war and not after....besides at the age of their parents, it might be impossible. Perhaps locating the other sons, William and Thomas, will give us more clues.

    George and Mary's daughters were born in the 1760s and I would feel certain that the sons were also........This couple had at least 20 years together before the war and the children were all likely born long before he became disabled. He apparently could not have children with Mary Douglass when they married - in fact there is no record of her having any children after being with Alexander Douglass.

    The only other possible theory is that George Little might have come to America with several brothers and they all settled into South Carolina.

    Native Americans of South Carolina
    VERY IMPORTANT FIND: 1719 South Carolina Assembly in determining who should be "indian" for tax purposes (Indian slaves were adjudged at a lower tax rate than negro slaves..so the idea is to get as much tax as possible...remember, censuses were also intended to assess the taxable citizens in any given area, so race was determined by what the census enumerator felt that the person should be taxed as.) The Act passed that year stated "And for preventing all doubts and scruples that may arise what ought to be rated on mustees, mulattoes, etc. all such slaves not entirely Indian should be accounted as negro." Inference: persons of Indian blood less than full-blood would be legally documented as "negro". It is apparent that by the time of the founding of Fort Christana at the NC/VA border, a large segment of the Siouan/Tuscarora/Algonquin Indians which were settled there and put to work as miners, were already mixed with white and Portuguese blood. By the time of the closing of the Fort, and the migrating of these Indian mixed-bloods to the shores of the Pamunkey River at around 1720, many of the families were so mixed and acculturated, that they were no longer legally or socially regarded as "Indian"....of course, they still had a high degree of Indian blood, and a strong Indian identity, but for the most part they went about their lives much like their white neighbors, farming, raising cattle, acquiring and titles, etc.

    By the 1750's when these Christian, English-speaking, literate, industrious, mixed-blood families began to spread to southern NC and northern SC, those white colonists didn't know what to do with these people. Usually when they 'toed-the-line' socially, financially, and legally, these is little documentation to distinguish them from their white neighbors... its only when someone crosses the line that their is some legal case, tax dispute, violent confrontation, etc., etc., which of course documents these peoples' ancestry in the darkest possible light.

    The single most important point here is this.......it wasn't the "mixed-blood" factor that held these people together as separate communities (there are many families of mixed black/white ancestry or white/Indian ancestry that melted into the larger white or black population) ... it wasn't the Portuguese ancestry that held these people together as separate communities (many of the families did not claim Portuguese ancestry, and the majority did not claim it as their first choice of racial identity)...it was the Indian ancestry that was the identity and motivating factor which caused them to live separately from their white and black neighbors.

    Mars Hill Cemetery in Cobb County GA

    connects to Josiah McClain of South Carolina who's father was Charles McClain who might have been in the American Revolution; Charles had married Elizabeth MOON in Virginia around 1780 and then migrated into the Carolinas where their children were born.

    Josiah was born in 1788 SC and found on census in Georgia. The name on his headstone is JOSAH

    Josiah had James in 1810, John Milton, William Smith, etc.
    Josiah also had Charles Pinkney McLain in 1818 SC

    They all had many children.

    James named his son Josiah Marion McClain born 1838 who became my great grandfather thru his own son Charles Allen McClain.

    Our Stone - Fenn - Carter family might connect to this guy but we will move on to other research for now...like the Bozeman, McClain, Anderson, Sellers, who joined them in Alabama. These families began in Virginia and spent over one hundred years traveling into the Carolinas and Georgia living among the indians, and we find them in Ramer, Montgomery County, Alabama living among many non white families. Our indian blood is very real.

    Many of us have census records that show the same
    person born in NC in one record and SC in another.

    A one page article in Georgia Genealogical Magazine Vol 33, 128-9 pg 217
    by Albert Bruce Pruitt helps explain how this may come about.

    1) the final NC/SC boundary was not established until 1815.
    2) Before that deeds were often "willy nilly" recorded in either NC or SC.
    3) In particular Rutherford County, NC deeds may have been recorded
    in Spartanburg District, SC after it was formed in 1785.

    Following the path of the old ones.

    Broken Arrow is my birthplace and both of my parents are Cherokee by blood.

    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 "Billy Boxcar" owned a roofing company in Enid, OK while the other "Big Brother" lived in North Carolina, where his wife's grandfather was a pastor in the Cherokee Reservation, as told by cousin Mark.

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

    I have followed them as far back as possible with census records, tax lists, church records, military records and some land deeds back to 1800 and some census records to 1790 being the first one taken, and found some very old records in the Archives regarding slave purchases, court petitions, or other court documents, etc., plus other old stories or books written, such as cousin Joshua Tefft being hanged, drawn and quartered by King Phillip in the 1600s Rhode Island history. Also there were books written by our cousin Lucius Little about our family's involvement in the History Of Kentucky, and Clyde Stephens's book about the migration of John into Alabama and his descendants, plus Wagon Tracks by Fenn, Sketches of Bozeman, Rev Miller by Milo Custer and many more helpful references to our family tree.

    My Cochran Clan of Scotland settled in Pennsylvania in the 1700s and had something to do with Cochranville PA, appearing as merchants on the census. Quakers and or Pennsylvania Dutch, they moved into Ohio by 1810, then Iowa and on to Hill City, Kansas where Grandpa Jacob Cochran became the first HomeSteader. Captain George Little of Scotland born 1735 was in Union South Carolina and served in the American Revolution, settling into Kentucky about 1802 with his second wife Mary Handley Douglass. Here his children met up with the Criglers, Carpenters, Roby, Simmons, Wells families. The Coonfields of Holland were in PA in the 1700s and Isaac born about 1760 was in the 1800 Kentucky Tax List. His great grandson Ben Coonfield married Lattie Little. Their daughter Luella married Frank D Cochran. Our grandfather Captain George Little was wounded during the Revolution, therefore exempt from any poll or tax list. Some of the Coonfields and Cochrans were in Iowa Territory in the 1800s and Isaac Coonfield Jr. had settled in Indiana.
    In Virginia 1600s is found Bozeman, McClain, Moon, Fann, Stone and 1700s North and South Carolina, are my Andersons, Brack,Doty, Sellers, Stephens ancestors who all eventually migrated into Georgia and Alabama, many listed in the DAR soldiers and patriots listing online. Much has been written about William Benjamin Sellers and John Stephens; The Doty family came from the first Thanksgiving in America, including our Edward Doty.
    The capital city of Montgomery attracted most who were moving into Alabama. They farmed cotton and hauled by horse and wagon to Dexter Avenue to sell it. Those in Ramer or Dublin had a very hard time on the nasty dirt roads with their wagons getting stuck, that they found it much closer, to just travel to Troy and sell their crops.
    Cousin Clarence deserves much credit for his work on the Brooks family tree. Our Hans Brooke came from Holland with a french wife and settled in Pennsylvania, having four children. Son John was found on the 1860 census of Giles Tennessee where he married and began a family but he also died young of tuberculosis and his wife remarried.
    Even though we all studied history as children, only now do I realize how harshly the epidemics harmed our families. There were very few doctors, and even less money to pay them, so most families made their own tonics or salves and tried to heal their own. Also we begin to realize that our own ancestors were the indians who lost their lands during the Trail or Tears and that we also had ancestors serving in the American Revolution. We had ancestors in the Civil War with some in the Union and some in the Confederacy. There is a documented soldier or patiot in most of my surnames of this lineage.
    Years ago when I first started this family tree, I downloaded a Cochran file online and thanks to Richard for his hard work on my Dad's lineage and the rest is my own labor of love. I took what Richard had posted on rootsweb and began my own census search to verify each family in the line and found even more to add, especially the Jacob Cochran file I received from cousin Chuck. Soon my little family tree became an addiction to genealogy.
    I have met many new cousins on the internet and shared stories and pictures. Much of my research has been found on usgenweb and the lds websites and I do thank my Bozeman cousins for meeting with me on 5/2/2007 and helping us find the grave of Peter Edward Bozeman. I have visited many cemeteries and ordered death certificates to prove my lineage.Elisha Anderson's will was probated in Montgomery 1834, Several marriage licenses and estate sales, even confederate applications. The first Peter Bozeman born 1758 has letters filed here in 1828 where he wrote to the revolutionary office.
    Many books have been written about our families and my own book sits on my desk and is being added to each day but will never be published.

Obviously he got the land in Hope Hull Alabama but I have not found any type of Land Deed until this item shows that Peter did in fact own land in Alabama. Now we need to go back and find the followup to this document to see when the land was sold and to whom.

Researching Charlotte Virginia, I found a young Charles Weatherford who could have been her brother and then a Patsy Weatherford who might have been her mother. Family legend is that John's family refused a land allotment in Indian nation Oklahoma, but it is a mystery as to why he chose to move to Arkansas.

His grandparents were Martha Hill and William Henry Bozeman who migrated from Darlington South Carolina about 1826. The Andersons and Bozemans lived next to each other in Hope Hull 1830 with Peter Edward being born in 1834. When William died, Martha Hill Bozeman moved to Dublin near her brother John Hill, who created the Hills Chapel School and Church........ After the Civil War Peter and Nancy bought land in Ramer/ Dublin area along the Meriweather Trail close to John Hill. John Hill donated land for their family cemetery which I visited, and he donated land for the Hills Chapel Church and another cemetery across from it where John T Bozeman is buried.

    • WWI Charles McClain (36 KB)
      his birth date is wrong, should be 1886 but it shows his wife as Lorena Bozeman. Charles was the son of Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain's who's families migrated from South Carolina into Georgia, then Alabama. Josiah descends from Elizabeth Moon and Charles McClain of 1750s Virginia. Elizabeth Moon had named a son Josiah and his son James had married an indian woman called Anna - Anna had a son named Josiah. I have seen three different dates of birth for grandpa Charlie but they had very little education, some could not read nor write at all, so the numbers are often mixed up. His mother Elizabeth was the daughter of Mary Stephens and Abner Broadway, and when Josiah died about 1897, she remarried to John Gardner of Dublin. Elizabeth and John and Charlie are found on the 1900 census, then again in 1910 with Lorena.

      Unknown connection but our Peter named a son Jesse so this could be a brother to our Peter in Darlington - there was a Jesse living two doors away from Peter in 1800 Darlington census. Peter's son was named Jesse M Bozeman and I can only suppose that M was for Mordecai and then can suppose it is possible that was also Peter's father's name.......now go back to the Jesse who served in the American Revolution and wonder if his middle initial was also M - could he have really been Peter's father living so close to him in 1800.............we may never know.

    Father of Peter, James and John and possibly a Jesse, Ralph and Paul. Mordecai's wife is a mystery, but suspected to be the widow Elizabeth discussed in S C Archives.

    Rev. Bozeman mentions Mordicai in Sketches of the Bozeman
    Family, 1885. "MORDICAI BOZEMAN - 1735. - DARLINGTON CO.,
    SOUTH CAROLINA A native of North Carolina, born about 1735.
    His sons were:
    1. Peter Bozeman, born about 1758; a soldier in the Revolution on the side of American independence and Moved to Alabama.
    2. John Bozeman, born about 1760; soldier in the Revolution with his brother.
    3. James Bozeman, born about 1766; lived in Darlington
    county, South Carolina; married Elizabeth Flowers."..and named their sons Jesse, John, James, and Henry.

    We also know that Mordicai served in the American Revolution in SC. ..... We do not know Mordicai's parents. Based on his birth date of 1735 in North Carolina, he could be a brother of James Bozeman of Edgecombe County. He could also be a brother of Samuel Edward Bozeman ( father of Lewis and grandfather of Philemon who moved to Covington Alabama.) Of course that would make him the son of Mary White and Samuel Bozeman and Mary did have a brother named Mordecai White, so it seems logical that Mary was his mother.

    Two pay vouchers for Mordecai's service in the Militia plus his name in the South Carolina history books about the Revolution. Mordecai served in Marion's Brigade with Peter, Paul, John, Ralph and Phillip.

    Description: BOSEMAN, MORDECAI, ACCOUNT AUDITED
    (FILE NO. 626) OF CLAIMS GROWING OUT OF
    THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. Names Indexed: BOSEMAN, MORDECAI/

    In 1826 Peter's land in SC was being surveyed - must be the year he began his journey to Alabama with all of his children and their families. His brother John had already bought land in Mississippi in 1823 with his indian bride.

    Peter was on census in the Cheraws District of Darlington SC in 1790-1800-1810 but he moved to Alabama after 1820. In 1800 his neighbor was Jesse Bozeman, obviously a brother or some kin but do not rule out the possibility he was Mordecai - because Peter did name a son Jesse M. - maybe after his father. No Land Grant was found for Mordecai but this Jesse received 640 acres and to be living so close to Peter makes one wonder who he really was.

    Peter's widow Sarah probably died in 1838 when her son Jesse started to divide the land. However her first born son Meady may have died about 1827 and never appeared on the estate. However there was a Vincent Joiner signing in 1829 by Sarah's name so was he married to one of Peter's other daughters? The 1790 census did show 4 females in his home.

    Her son William Henry also named a son Peter Edward Bozeman and it is possible that the name Edward is passed on by the ancestors of Mordecai, thus my thinking we connect to Samuel Edward Bozeman.

    William Henry had a brother named Peter E who married Gilly and moved to Louisiana, and Jesse was the administrator of his estate.
    When William Henry died, brother Jesse, was also administrator of that estate. William's heirs were named in that estate and his wife received a Writ of Dower to keep her home.

    New DAR members based on Peter's record are Allison and Hazel Bozeman and SAR = Jimmy Ray - congrats!!

    Moved to Alabama about 1826 with his son William Henry and others. William Henry Bozeman born about 1802, had a son named Peter Edward Bozeman who married Nancy Jane Anderson in Ramer Alabama. She was the daughter of Lavinia Jane Sellers and Elijah Anderson. Elijah's will was probated in Montgomery in 1834.

    Peter had written letters in 1828 requesting help because he was disabled in the war but was rejected since there was no proof but the Revolutionary Office did pay him for his services in 1785. Peter died in 1828 and his estate sale includes wife Sarah, with signatures of William Henry and a Vincent M. Joiner.

    William Henry had brothers, Meade, Jesse M. and Peter E. and 3 sisters Lucy Campbell and Ellen Joiner. Meade and his wife died about 1821 and father Peter gave his grandsons Peter H. and Jesse a deed gift of land.

    William Henry named his children Peter, John Thomas, Meady and Martha. William died in 1847 and brother Jesse was the Administrator of that Estate. The list of orphans included all of the children listed above with a Writ of Dower for the widow.

    Rev. Bozeman mentions Mordicai in Sketches of the Bozeman Family, 1885. "MORDICAI BOZEMAN - 1735. - DARLINGTON CO., SOUTH CAROLINA A native of North Carolina, born about 1735.

    His sons were: 1. Peter Bozeman, born about 1758; a soldier in the Revolution on the side of American independence. Moved to Alabama. 2. John Bozeman, born about 1760; soldier in the Revolution with his brother. 3. James Bozeman, born about 1766; lived in Darlington county, South Carolina; married Elizabeth Flowers."...... We also know that Mordicai served in the American Revolution in SC. ... We do not know Mordicai's parents. Based on his birth date of 1735 in North Carolina, he could be a brother of James Bozeman of Edgecombe County. He could also be a brother of Samuel Bozeman. He could also be a brother of Benjamin Bozeman of Southampton County, VA

    Mordecai also served in the war with Paul, Phillip, Medeah, Jacob and Jesse Bozeman, who may have been his brothers and sons as well.

    Most believe the Boseman or Bozeman families came from Holland and this we may never know. Edword Bozeman was found in the 1790 census of Baltimore, Maryland; John in Talbot, MD; Lawrence Bouseman in Baltimore. Some served in the American Revolution and received a pension along with grants of land, for instance, the South Carolina Archives lists some as Gabriel, John, Paul, Jesse, Ralph, James, Mordecai and probably more with different spellings of our last name. Of course it would be nice to learn more about Mordecai even his middle name and if he was the son of Samuel Edward Bozeman and Mary White, after all, her brother was named Mordecai and the name Edward has continued over many centuries.

    So many names were Biblical yet then we find another set of Bozemans named Ralph, Fred, George, and Lewis. Names were so very special, most often, after another dearly loved family member.

    These families were farmers and many had well educated, successful careers, mostly throughout the South, as they explored each new territory as it became available.

    Reverend Bozeman did a marvelous job writing his "Sketches of the Bozeman Family" in 1885 and a couple of pages were scanned to share indicating the whereabouts of Mordecai. He does not say anything about Mordecai being a fatality of the Revolution so we can only assume that he died later from natural causes, and hopefully that information will come to light soon.

    The 1810 census of Darlington SC shows only four Bosemans, John, James, Peter and Chapman. 1800 shows a Thomas living in Somerset NC. The name Thomas is carried on through the next century.

    * From 1798 to 1819, a steady influx of Europeans into Alabama settled on land formerly occupied by several Native American tribes. Alabama became a part of the Mississippi Territory in 1798 after Indian cessions in north Alabama. Migration increased after the end of the Creek War in 1814. In 1817, the Alabama Territory was created, and Alabama became the 22nd in December 1819. PETER BOZEMAN was in Alabama on the 1830 census.

    Virginia to Maryland to North Carolina and beyond...

    Fact, fiction or folklore, by the time the American Revolution was over, there were dozens of Bozeman families throughout the South. Dozens received Bounty Land for their service in the War of Independence so those from Virginia or North Carolina might be found in the new lands of South Carolina in the 1790 census records or further back in the Archives.

    They resided among several different tribes of native americans and have many indian brides in their ancestral charts.

    A small beginning of my genealogy:
    Marengo County was created by the Alabama Territorial legislature on 1818 Feb. 6, from land acquired from the Choctaw Indians by the treaty of 1816 Oct.24. The name of the county was suggested by Judge Abner Lipscombe, and was given as a compliment to the first white settlers, expatriated French citizens and commemorative of Napoleon's great victory at Marengo over the Austrian armies on 1800 June 14.Marengo County is situated in the west-central part of the state.It is bordered by Hale, Greene, Perry, Dallas, Wilcox, Clarke, Choctaw,Sumter.

    George Grauer born 1801 Germany married Sophia Porter born 1801 North Carolina and migrated into Marengo County Alabama. Perhaps with a group of brothers and sisters, they all seemed to have settled closely together, even with Sophia's father Mark Porter and his families.

    Sophia's daughter Elizabeth was born in 1827 Alabama and she married James Westbrook in Marengo County, a son of Moses.

    The Westbrook families were also from 1700s North Carolina and may connect to a Richard Westbrook who served in the N C Militia in 1754.

    It appears that Elizabeth Westbrook was a widow with one son, William, on the 1850 census so she must have been pregnant with George Grauer Westbrook that year. In 1879 her son George married Marsella Braswell, who's families were also early settlers of Marengo County; her mother was Mary Glass, also another family of early settlers. Mary's mother was Hannah Holt, a daughter of Cader Holt, a big plantation owner who was buying land in Marengo in the 1820s. The others mentioned above have land deeds dated 1830.

    Elizabeth Westbrook remained a widow for many years and always took care of her mother Sophia, who we find together on the 1870 census when Elizabeth has remarried, to Mr. Lawson and had more children...Elizabeth's son George and his wife Marcella had several children, including Clarence Grauer Westbrook in 1879, who married Carrie Etheridge. Carrie named a son Bruce Garland Westbrook in 1919 and he married Christine Holley. Christine's son married Penton, a daughter of Lige Bennett Penton and Gertrude Jones starting their own legacy in Elmore County.

    Many of our ancestors have at some point in their journeys, spent time residing in Alabama. They crossed the Atlantic and ventured south for many reasons and on through the midwest.

    Some came through Georgia down the Old Federal Road towards Montgomery, some settled in Pike County and others in Chambers County or other areas near it.

    Tracing our roots can be very time consuming, and extremely addictive: each day we find a new name to add to the list
    of cousins. Each day we find a new story to share and possibly a shocking fact!

    Our Little family has been researching a link to the sister of Pocahontas, named Cleopatra, while some researchers say there is no documentation proving she ever existed, they cannot prove she didn't.

    Grandma Anna Stone's husband managed the Fenn Plantation in Eufaula, and we certainly read where Indians worked the farm that was owned by Uncle Matthew Fenn They shared every day together and intermarried. Some of the slaves on that plantation adopted the last name of FENN.

    My mother grew up as white but learned very early in her childhood that she was different. She was taught to run
    hide whenever the KKK came down the road. Her uncle was told to sit in the back of the bus during the days of prejudice.

    Now I search for the answers Mom was seeking - who gave her this Cherokee heritage.

    Names I am now searching are: Clora Jane Miller Cochran, Lottie Sadonia Little, Luella Coonfield, Peter Edward Bozeman (Bosman), Josiah Marion McClain (McLain), Annie Lee Stone Fenn Carter, William Frank Fenn, Cecil Earl Carter, John Fann and Emeline Harrel, Nancy Jane Anderson, Sara Mills with Joseph Stephens, Mordicai Bozeman of 1700, Martha Young Coonfield, Mary Epperson Coonfield, Barsheba Clark Coonfield, and several Moons as well.

    We all connect thru our old ones and find we are all cousins!

    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.
