6 Even though there has been no "paper connection" linking or identifying Levi as the son of Joseph and Elizabeth Bozarth there is circumstantial evidence; Joseph Bozorth/Bozarth died in Nelson Co. Ky in 1790, will being probated in Hardin Co. Ky in 1799.
Levi Bozarth married Sarah Pierce in Hardin Co. Ky in 1802. Marriage Bonds of Hardin Co. Ky by Stancliff.

Levi Bozarth signed marriage document of Israel Bozarth (believed to be the son of Joseph and Elizabeth,) also in Hardin Co. Ky 1805.
Levi Bozarth in Tennessee in 1820 according to 1820 federal census, probably there as early as 1808, His son Joseph Bozarth is listed in the 1850 census of Tennesse, born in Tennessee.
Will of Levi registered in DeKalb. Co. Tennessee, Book A. page 20, dated December 20, 1840

7 Upon graduation from Farmersville High School, Hobart proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps. After graduating from East Texas State University, he began his 33 year teaching career for the Rockwall Independent School District where he taught science, coached athletics, and later became the Rockwall Middle School assistant principal. Known as “Coach Wisdom” to the entire town, one of his proudest accomplishments was coaching the 1963 Rockwall Yellowjacket State Championship football team. He was a member of First Baptist Church of Rockwall.

Coach Wisdom is survived by his daughters: Brenda Wisdom of Bryan, TX, and Meredith Wisdom of Rockwall, TX; granddaughter: Aaralyn Wisdom; two brothers: Allen Wisdom of Farmersville, TX, and Larry Wisdom of Mineola, TX; nephew and nieces: Gary Wisdom, Elizabeth LaFargue and Susannah Wisdom. He was preceded in death by his parents and his loving wife, Mary (Webb) Wisdom.

8 !1880 Census - Smith Co., TN. 17th Civil District. ED 126. Family 144. Age 18. Enumerated with parents. Listed as Sidney S. Rollins.

!1880 Census - Smith Co., TN. 14th Civil District (South Carthage), Family 26. Enumerated as Stanton Rollins, age 18, laborer, listed with his maternal grandfather, Louis Alison, age 66, and Louis' fourth wife Nancy [Nolan], age 44.

Stanton Rollins is clearly the father of Ara Rollins and her siblings, since Smith County court records of 1898, 1902 and 1904 show money allowances from the county for the relief of Stanton Rollins' orphaned children.

Stanton died before July, 1898 (first court award) and after conception of Ara (about Feb 1896 if her birth of Nov 1896 is correct.) Allene (Deadmon) DuBose says that Ara's father died "about six months after Ara's birth, so Stanton probably died in 1897. Ara's mother died "soon" after Ara's birth, possibly in childbirth.

9 !1880 Census - Smith Co., TN. 17th Civil District. ED 126. Family 144. Age 39. She and both parents born TN.

Rebecca died between 1882 (youngest known child born then) and 1900 (husband William a widower in 1900.)

Maiden name from records received from the Smith County (TN) Historical Society. Includes a deed record that Rebecca Rollins, wife of William Rollins, deeded to Wyatt B. Denny a tract of land by descent, formerly owned by Lewis Allison. Aug 1, 1881.

These records also include 1850 census records for Smith Co., TN listing Lewis Allison, age 40, wife, Nancy, age 37, and Rebecca, age 8, plus 7 other children.

10 !Gilliam Clan, June 1992, Vol. 10, No. 2, page 12: Robert P. Gilliam, son of Epaphroditus Gilliam, was born 6 January 1801 in either Buncombe or Haywood County, North Carolina. Epaphroditus Gilliam was listed on the 1800 Buncombe County census but was listed on the 1810 Haywood County census. Robert P. Gilliam was the eighth child of Epaphroditus Gilliam.
Robert Gilliam married Myra Jones in Clay County, MO, 24 January 1824.
Jesse Gillum and John Jones were witnesses. Someone apparently a clerk, erroneously wrote John Gillum and Myra Jones in the margin of their marriage.
At least one book has reported that this marriage was for John Gillum and Myra Jones. The 1850, 1860, and 1870 census reports showed that Myra was born in Tennessee. Their nine children were all born in Missouri.
Various records show different spelling of these given names. Most of these children have given names which were not generally used by the children of Epaphroditus Gilliam.
Robert and his family moved to Fannin County, Texas, in 1850 and apparently lost contact with the Gilliams that stayed in Missouri or moved on to Oregon and California. Only one descendant of Robert has contacted us about this family. Her address in 1980 was Ina Belle Duncan, P. O. Box 236, Randolph, TX 75476.
On 16 June 1853, Robert signed his will in Fannin County, Texas. The will started out "I Robert P. Gilliam of the county of Platte and state of Missouri." This seems unusual when he had been in Texas for about three years. The will mentions his wife, Myra, and the nine children mentioned above.
Robert died in Fannin County on 2 Sept 1858. A 'History of Fannin County, Texas', by Ploy C. Hodge, 183, showed the following: Gilliam.
A settler from Missouri lived only a few years after he homesteaded in Fannin County in 1850. Pioneer Robert P. Gilliam (1801-1858) and his Myra (1803-1878) stopped along Bois d' Arc Creek 10 miles south of Bonham where they cleared land for a farm. Both Robert and Myra were natives of Tennessee.
Several of their children were born in Missouri.
Gilliam descendants are buried in Porter cemetery where the family plot was started in 1858 at the death of Robert.
Children of Robert and Myra Gilliam were John E., Serepta, Elizabeth, Sophia, Verlinda, Miranda, Jarmeda, (Zarelda) and Washington H. who was married to Sarah Blanton.
Note: The 1850 Platte County, MO, census report, the only census to show Robert's birthplace, shows that Robert was born in North Carolina and Myra was born in Tennessee.

11 !Info ex Ara's daughter, Allene (Deadmon) DuBose - Aug 1995.
Ara was youngest of five children. Her mother died soon after Ara was born, possibly in childbirth. Ara's father died about 6 months after Ara born.
Ara and her siblings were raised by two aunts, both sisters of the childrens' father. The aunts were Nannie (Nancy) Rollins, a "spinster" (actually, she was married to Thomas Nolen/Noline between 1900 and 1910, no children), and Alta Rollins, who married Rufus Smith.

12 !Smith County, TN marriage license dated August 4, 1886: Mr. Stanton Rollins to Miss Sarah Stewart.

Sarah was probably daughter of Thomas J. Stewart and Octava. Listed in Smith Co., TN census in 1880, District 13. Sarah was only 9 1n 1880 so would have been about 15 in 1886. Not an uncommon marriage age in those days. Also, Thomas and Octava
had a daughter, Telula, age 7 in 1880. Stanton's brother, Taylor, married a Lula who was 26 in 1900.

There was also a Carroll Stewart, wife Mary J., enumerated in District 8 (considerably more removed from District 13) with daughter Sarah A., age 16, in 1880.

Sarah died possibly in childbirth "soon" after birth of Ara Rollins in November, 1896. Ara and her siblings were orphans by July, 1898 (court order for relief of five orphan children of Stanton Rollins.)

Head Crushed When He Looks Into Shaft at 1206 Main.

Nelson T. Jennett, 25 years old, an automatic sprinkler installer for the Walton Viking Company, 2613 Walnut Street, was injured fatally today in an elevator accident in a building at 1205 Main street, the interior of which is being reconditioned for Mrs. Stover's Bungalow Candies Company.

Jennett pushed a button for the automatic elevator to stop at the fourth floor, where he was working, according to witnesses, and looked through the iron grating on the door to see where the elevator was. It descended, striking his head. He died shortly after being taken to General hospital, where his brother, Dr. J. Harvey Jennett, is night superintendent.

Jennett leaves his widow and a 3-month-old baby. He lives at 4826 East Eighth street."

According to information from agencies investigating the case, the four oldest children, Jack who is a student in Lincoln High School, Edwin, Jeanette and Lila Jane, all became ill first and were cared for by their parents. The baby of the family, Kerry, 2, remained well and was removed to the home of relatives.
When the parents were also afflicted, and Edwin did not respond satisfactorily to treatment, they entered the hospital. He had been employed on the WPA.

24 "He was an automobile mechanic by trade and also enjoyed gardening. He had a large prolific strawberry patch at his home that was a marvel in neatness as the long rows were carefully tended and kept weed free. This year he had built a two-wheeled cart, using two discarded wheels from a farm implement, a seat from a grain binder and had a place in front to set berry boxes. On this he rode when picking berries, also when weeding the patch. The unusual piece of machinery also had a canopy over it to provide shade, and created a great deal of interest in the neighborhood." MOREE, Robert Lee Jr. (I569)

27 "Henry H. Means died a his home 2 1/2 miles east of Lewis after an illness of eight days of Bright's disease, was born near Hopkinsville, Christian County, KY., May 5 1812, which would have make him 81 on his next birthday. He received more than a common school education and at an early age read medicine, which he thoroughly understood but never practiced any. After he came to Missouri, he spent most of his time teaching and was very successful. Married twice; to his first wife, Miss Miller, in Kentucky, near where he was raised, and remained there two years, at which time he buried the wife of his youth and babe. Life not being satisfactory, he emigrated west and landed in old Missouri in 1844 and stopped with some of his relatives in the eastern part of Henry County, where he secured a school for a term of several months. He won the affections of Miss Mary Fewell and they were married on the 5th of July 1844 and in the fall they went back to his old home in Kentucky and stayed until spring, when they returned to this state and stayed in Howard County two years, then to Johnson for a short time, then to the western part of Henry for several years and then to the north part of the county and from there to the old homestead where he lived until his death. They had eight children and all are living but one, Mrs. Lou Carroll, who died some two years ago, so five boys and two girls are left to mourn their father's loss. B. F. Means is living in Montgomery County; Z. T. Means is living in East St. Louis and the rest of the children are now making their home in this county.
Although he never belonged to any church, he was a strong believer in religion as taught by the Bible, which he studied until he knew almost every passage and were it would be found. He was brought up according to strict Methodist discipline, to which faith and doctrine he ever adhered. About two years ago after his recovery from an attack of the disease which terminated his life, he resolved to seek God, which he did, and expressed a desire to unite with the old Methodist Church, as he termed it, but for some reason he failed to do so. On the evening of March 28, 1893, his life closed and his remains were borne to the Lewis cemetery, where he was laid by the side of his wife, who died five years ago, and the breezes of the summer will blow softly over their graves."

33 "Joe Kuebler was the "baby" of the Nick Kuebler family, and it seems he either must have inherited his mother's alleged nasty disposition, or else just developed one on his own. Family life for Carolyn's mom and her siblings was very rough, because Joe never worked regularly, drank too much, and was terribly abusive to his wife and also the children. By the time Carolyn knew him in his later years, he was just a nice old grandpa, but his children never knew him that way.
When Joe Kuebler learned of the marriage [of his daughter Frieda to Adolph Schuetz, a protestant, in a Lutheran Church], he threw her out of the house and wanted nothing to do with her for almost 3 years till Carolyn's older brother Ken was born. Then they got a letter asking them to come home for one of the holidays."

40 "When about seven years of age, his parents moved to Clinton, where he lived until the war broke out. When a young man, he served over a year in the state militia, but on account of his regiment not being mustered in, he was unable to get a pension. He moved to Benton County in 1863. In 1887 during a protracted meeting at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, he made his peace, calling and election sure with God, and united with the church of which he lived a faithful member until God saw fit to take him to His home above. He will be greatly missed as a member. He was true to the church and true to God's cause, and he will be remembered at Mt. Pleasant. He was a kind husband to his wife, loving and affectionate to his children, and was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to all his friends and neighbors. He was confined to his bed about three months, but was patient in all his suffering. (obit.)"
"Fielding Wilhite (my grandfather) served as school teacher, surveyor and later carried the mail, horseback, from Lexington, Boonville, Sedalia, Warsaw and Clinton before the Civil war... He was blind in one eye and unable to serve in the regular army during the Civil War, so he enlisted in the State Militia and served under Capt. Miller and Lt. Douglas, hauling supplies for the army. He had many narrow escapes, but said the Lord always delivered him. Once at night he was surrounded by the enemy and managed to get among a herd of cattle. He cut the strap from the bell from around the cow's neck and crawling on his stomach, jingling the bell now and then, he escaped through the woods.
Most of their married life after the war was spent on a farm south of Linclon, Mo. near Mt. Pleasant Church where they were faithful members.
