Research Note: My wife Linda, nee Koontz, and I (Ken Doig) researched the early generations of this family in the early 1990s with recent updates. Some onsite locations include the LDS Library in Salt Lake City and the libraries of the Southern California Genealogical Society and German Genealogical Society. The christening records were extracted by myself from the original church records (microfilm) of Preuschdorf, Alsace and Frederick County, Maryland. Two publications by earlier researchers are "Hazzard's History of Henry County, Indiana, 1822-1906," by George Hazzard, Published in 1906, and "George Michael Eller and his Descendents in America," by James W. Hook, published in 1957. Additions, corrections, and comments always welcome.

Descendants of

Martin Kuntz of Baden, Germany

 

1. Martin Kuntz, born abt 1599 Of Germany; died 27 Apr 1627 in Menzingen, Baden, Germany. He married unknown.

Notes for Martin Kuntz

Kuntz is a German name from the old personal name Chunizo, formed with Old High German kuoni 'bold', 'brave', 'experienced', or possibly chunni 'race', 'people'. It is sometimes taken as a pet form of Konrad. The expression Hinz und Kunz was a German equivalent of 'every Tom, Dick, and Harry'.

Martin Kuntz's son Peter moved from Menzingen about 20 miles south-west to Durlach near Karlsruhe by the Rhine River. His grandson Michael crossed the Rhine and settled in Preuschdorf, Alsace, France. His great-grandson Hans Georg Cuntz crossed the seas to Philadelphia in 1732 and settled in Fredericks Co., Maryland. From there the family moved south to North Carolina and then spread to parts west.

Historical note: The 30 Years' War (1618-1648) was initially fought between Protestants and Catholics. George Frederick of Baden-Durlach led the Protestants in a number of battles, but was defeated in Wimpfen in 1622 and his army destroyed in 1627. Martin was an 'Evangelisch', and this may account for his death in that year. It may also have spurred his family's movement towards America.

2 i Margaretha2 Kuntz, born 1626 in Menzingen, Baden, Germany; christened 18 Jan 1626 in Evangelisch, Menzingen, Baden, Germany.

Notes for Peter Kuntz

Son Michael's marriage record lists his father as Peter from Oberbach(?) In der Obermarggraffschafft Durlach. This indicates Peter was from the village of Oberbach in the area of Durlach, the capitol of the Margraviate of Baden-Durlach, Germany. Durlach is just east of Karlsruhe near the Rhine River, across from Alsace in France. Peter's birthplace in Menzingen is about 20 miles north east of Durlach.

Hans Diebold Cuntz, age 12, came to Philadelphia, PA with his family in 1732 on the "Loyal Judith."

Devall Coonce and John Coons together witnessed the will of Ballish Fought on 29 May 1751 in Frederick Co., MD. On 12 Feb 1754 he purchased 70 acres in Frederick Co., MD known as "Devaull's Lot" (YS8/616;GS1/294). Deval Conce and his wife Margaret sold to Jacob Gallman on 21 Feb 1755, 70 acres of land on Grooses Branch in Frederick Co. (Book E, p. 916 Frederick Co. Deeds) On 2 Feb 1756 Devault Coonce and Margaret sold to Edward Matthias 100 acres on Abraham Creek at the foot of Kittocton Mountain called "Davis Delight" in Frederick Co. (Book E, p. 990) And on 22 Aug 1770 Devault Coons and Margaret sold to William Flick a lot in Sharpsburg, Frederick Co. (Book N, p. 305) The variation in spelling is due to the scribes interpretation of the sound of his name, as Devault signed his name "X."

Also purchasing land in Frederick Co., MD:

Christian Koon - 26 Oct 1750, 54 acres at "Coon's Delight."

Peter Coonk(s) - 19 Apr 1758, 22 acres at "Shoemaker's Awl."

Joseph Coun - 1 Mar 1762, 25 acres at "Coun's Lot."

William Countz - 29 Sept 1762, 50 acres at "What You Will."

During the Revolutionary War, those taking the Oath of Allegiance in Frederick Co., MD in 1778 included Martin Coontz, Patrick Conse, Henry Coontz, and Philip Coone. And the Oath of Fidelity and Support on 5 Mar 1778 was Jacob Koontz. [This suggests that Devault was deceased by 1778 or had left for North Carolina; his sons Gasper and George show up in the 1779 Tax List for Randolph Co., NC.]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: The Dewalt Kuntz/Devault Koons who fought in the Revolutionary War was NOT our Devault.

Theobald/Dewald Kuntz came to Pennsylvania on the ship 'Phoenix' from Rotterdam in the Netherlands with a stop at Cowes, England. Upon entry he took the Oath of Allegiance to the Province and State of Pennslvania on 28 Aug 1750. (Penn. Archives, 2nd. series, Vol. XVII, page 319) Sergeant Davault (Dewalt) Koons of Northampton Co., PA served in the militia under Capt. John Vanetten's 7-months men in 1780. [Pennsylvania Archives, Fifth Series, Vol. VIII, pages 111 and 574; Vol. IV, page 331.] Dewald Kuntz is on a muster roll of Captain Adam Surfacess' Company, consisting of the First Class of Northampton County Militia, now in the service of the United States, commanded by Lieut. Col., Christian Shouse, in the year 1781, serving from 12 Oct 1781 to 22 Nov 1781, a total of 41 days. Dewald Kuntz appears on the 1787 Tax List for Northamption Co., PA (Penn. Archives, Series 3, Vol. XIX, Page 722). Dewalt Koons appears on a 1787 list in Macungie, Northampton Co., PA with 192 acres, 4 horses, and 1 horned cattle. Birth reported in 1736 and death in 1808 (not confirmed).

Dewald Kuntz listed as foreigner who took the Oath of Allegiance (Pennsylvania Archives, Series 2, Volume XVII).

1775, May 22 - Chestnut Hill Company, Northampton Co., PA, 82 men: Captain Abraham Smith, Lieutenant Dewalt Kuntz (Pennsylvania Archives, Series 5, Volume VIII).

1778, Sept 3 - Dewalt Kuntz purchased a saddle from the estate of Henry Geissinger for 4 pounds. (Pennsylvania Archives, Series 6, Volume XII)

1790, Apr 20 - Dewalt Kuntz awarded 40.30 acres. (Pennsylvania Archives, Series 3, Volume XXVI)

The Daughters of the American Revoution (DAR) accepted an application descending from the above Dewald Kuntz and wife Anna Maria through son Philip Kuntz, born 3 June 1762 in Northampton Co., PA and died 3 Jan 1832. There appears no connection between this Pennsylvania family and those who went to North Carolina.

Often confused is John Casper Kuntz born 17 Sept 1758 and christened at St. Johns Reformed Church, Lower Heidelberg, Berks Co., PA, son of Theobold Kuntz and Susanna. Our Gasper was born 8 Nov 1759.

Our Devault was already in America in 1732, whereas the other man entered in 1750. The family of our Devault did not move north to Pennsylvania but south to North Carolina where his son John had a child born there in 1778. Sons Gaspar and George also had sons born in Randolph Co., NC in 1780, whereas the other Devault was still in Northampton Co., PA in 1787.

Descendents of Devault's son Gasprr Koons in Indiana submitted applications to the Sons of the American Revolution claming their ancestors had come through Pennslvania from Germany to include their Devault Koons had served in the war. This appears to be later family lore and not fact. See notes on son Gasper Koons.

Notes for Gasper (Ghasper, Jaspher, Casper, Kasper) Koons

John Koons, Gasper Koons, and George Koons are confirmed as brothers in the 1803 will of brother George. The 1906 recollections of Benjamin Koons (see below) give their father as Devault Koons.

Birth date may be 1758/9 as died 8 Nov 1820 at age 61.

Caspar Coonse appears on the 1779 tax list for Randolph Co., NC, along with George Coonse. On 23 Dec 1784 he was warranted land on Little River in Randolph Co. On 18 Aug 1787 another deed to 120 acres was granted to Jasper Coons on Little River, with more property later on Richmond Creek. Gasper Coontz appears in the 1790 Census for Randolph County (1,3,3,0,0), with himself over 16, 3 sons under 16, 2 daughters, a wife, and no non-family or slaves. He acquired more land there on 15 Aug 1793. Gasper moved to Rowan Co., NC, and then to Wilkes Co. where they owned land along the Red River.

In 1800 Gasper lived in Randolph Co., NC (page 324 - 21210-00110-00). He moved to Wayne County, IN, where on 19 Nov 1808 he recorded a deed to SW of S10, T13N, R1W. In 1809 he was listed as a voter in Indiana Territory, which included Randolph, Wayne, and Union Counties. Gasper and family had followed to a large Quaker settlement around Richmond in Wayne County.

Gasper still owned land in NC, as appearing in the 1815 Ashe County Tax List are Gaspar Koons (150 acres at Charles Francis), Devault Koons (150 acres at North Fork), George Koons (205 acres at North Fork), John Koons (90 acres at North Fork), George Koonts (250 acres at Pond Mountain), and Mary Koonts (340 acres at S F New River).

Gasper and Abagail Coonse requested on 25 June 1808 a certificate to transfer to the South West Branch Monthly Meeting in Miami Co., OH. After traveling six weeks over precarious roads , they arrived at Whitewater, now Richmond, Wayne Co., IN. On 19 Aug 1809 certification was received from the Back Creek Quakers for Jasper, Abigail and Hanna to be received into the West Branch Monthly Meeting of Quakers. They were located in Miami Co., OH, 2 miles southwest of West Milton, having been opened 7 Jan 1807. George had remained in NC, and Devault had moved to Morgan Co., IN.

The following is a selection in "Hazzard's History of Henry County, Indiana, 1822-1906," Volume 2, page 1163, by George Hazzard, Published in 1906. It is a section titled "Biographical Sketch of Benjamin Franklin Koons." This Benjamin was born in1839 in Henry Co., IN and died there in 1911. These were his personal recollections of stories he would have heard from his father, Joseph Koons, and possibly, as a child, from his grandmother Abigail. That his great-grandfather was Devault Koons was likely passed on accurately. However, the place of origin in Pennsylvania and the timing do not match documented records. In the following excerpt the family moved to North Caroline about 1800, but sons Gasper and George appear on the 1779 Tax List for Randolph Co., NC, over 20 years before. Benjamin's early history is part family legend. Whether his father was from Pennsylvania or Maryland is discussed in the details of Gasper's father Devault. Here is the story Benjamin told George Hazzard:

"The great-grandparents of Benjamin F. Koon were Devault Koons, a native of Pennsylvania, and Susan (Dicks) Koons, a native of Germany, who lost her first husband at sea while crossing the ocean to America. She subsequently married Devault Koons, and to their union were born three sons - Gasper, George, and John. Gasper, who was born in Pennsylvania, November 8, 1759, married Mary Presnell, also a native of Pennsylvania, in 1775. They had seven children, four sons and three daughters, namely: George, Devault, Gasper, John, Martha, Mary, and one who died in infancy.

"The mother of these children died, and in 1797 the father, Gasper Koons, married Abigail Piggott, a school teacher, the daughter of Jeremiah and Rachel Piggott. They were members of the Friends' or Quaker Church, and the marriage was according to the Friend's ceremony. To the union of Gasper Koons and Abigail Piggott were born twelve children, nine sons and three daughters. The eldest son died in infancy; the others were: Jeremiah, William, Nathan, Henry, Samuel, Joseph, Benjamin, Jesse, Hannah, Rachel, and Susannah.

"This family moved about the year 1800, from Pennsylvania to North Carolina, where they settled near Bald Mountain. In the fall of the year 1808 the family left North Carolina and after travelling fully for six weeks, climbing mountains and fording streams and rivers, they arrived safely at Whitewater, near the then village of Richmond, Wayne County, Indiana, and there they entered one hundred and sixty acres of land, which now lie beyond the corporate limits, southeast of the city of Richmond. Gasper Koons and his wife were devout member of the Friends' Church and the considerable body of their co-religionists, who were already settled in Wayne County about Richmond, made the location an especially favorable one to them. They attended the meetings of their church at Richmond as long as their healths would permit. Gasper Koons died November 8, 1820 at the age of sixty one years. His widow followed him to the grave in 1850, age seventy eight years. Both are buried in Earlham Cemetery, Richmond."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

One of the best secondary sources for early Koons family history can be found in James W. Hook, "George Michael Eller and his Descendents in America," published in 1957, pages 159-162 (of over 40 pages on the Koons and descendants). He concludes that the above account by Benjamin Franklin Koons that the family came from Pennsylvania is "rendered doubtful" because Devault Koons appears repeatedly in the Frederick Co. MD records as well as son Devault Koons, there. The sons Gasper, John, and George appear in the same locations in North Carolina as the Eller, Dick, and Stoker families where are documented as coming from Frederick County, and the number if intermarriages between the families.

George joined the Back Creek Quakers in North Carolina on 27 July 1793. He was disowned for marrying out of the Unity on 27 June 1801.

George was a veteran of the War of 1812.

George appears in the 1810 census for Ashe Co., NC. In the 1815 tax list he owned 205 acres at North Fork, Ashe Co., NC. The family emigrated to Wayne Co., IN in Sept 1819. (He appears in the 1820 census for Ashe Co., NC with 19 in the household, including 10 slaves.) On 9 Dec 1819 he sold 90 acres of land to Henry Eller in Ashe Co., NC (Deed Book C, page 68). Two years later on 12 Sept 1821 he and his brother John took up land in Liberty Township, Henry Co., IN, and a year later on 11 Nov 1822 he took up land in Blue River Township of the same county. In 1830 George Koonse lived in Henry Co., IN (page 59) with his wife, 4 sons, and 2 daughters. In 1840 George lived in Henry Co. (page 119) with his wife, 3 sons and a daughter at home.

George was a Republican in politics. He and his family belonged to the Liberty Baptist church in Liberty Township, Henry Co., IN where he became a trustee on 5 Nov 1827.

George emigrated to Indiana by wagon in Sept. 1819, and a few months later moved to Wayne Co. where they remained about two years. Mr. Koons then moved his family to Liberty Township, Henry Co. where he entered land bought from the Government and built a log house, residing there for 16 years. He then sold his farm and entered 80 acres in Blue River Township and built a log cabin on the same, residing there until his death.

1st. I direct that my body be decently interred and that my funeral be conducted in a manner corresponding with my estate and situation in life, and as to such worldly estate as it has pleased God to entrust me with I dispose of the same in the following manner, to-wit: I direct first that all my just debts and funeral expenses be paid as soon after my decease as possible out of the first moneys that shall come to the hands of my Executor from any portion of my estate personal.

Notes for Devault Koons

Davoull Coons joined the Back Creek Quakers in Randolph Co., NC on 27 July 1793. Davolt Koone was disowned for marrying out of the Quaker Unity to one nearer than a second cousin on 27 June 1801.

Devault appears in the 1815 tax list with 150 acres at North Fork, Ashe Co., NC.

Davault recorded land in Morgan Co., IN, Section 13, Township 12 north, Range 1 east, on 14 Nov 1820, although Morgan Co. was not formed until 1822. Subsequent land transactions in the Recorders Office, Morgan Co. were recorded in 1826, 1828, 1829, 1830, 1834, 1835 and 1836.

"In those early times it was often the case that the men of the family would come in the month of March, select and clear a piece of ground and build a cabin, cultivate some corn and vegetables, and then return and move the family in the latter part of the summer or fall. An instance of this kind was told the writer by the late Elijah Koons, son of Devault Koons, while at his house, which stood on the very spot of ground that he (Elijah) and his father cleared and planted in the spring of 1820. This was in Sec. 16, T. 12, R. 1 E., known in the early days as "the old sixteenth," the land of corn and "punkins," squirrels and paroquets." Devault Koons with his large family moved to this cabin in due time and became one among the first settlers in the south part of Washington township. [Indiana Historical Society Publications, Volume 5, 1897.]

In 1830 Davault Koons lived in Morgan Co., IN with his wife, 8 males, and 5 females (page 252) (1122201000000-1010201000000).

Koons Cemetery, Morgan Co., IN - Koons cemetery located on the land originally deeded to Devault Koons by President James Monroe in 1822. It is located in Section 13, Township 12 North, Range 1 East. There is no remaining headstone for Devault.

Notes for Amelia (Milly, Milley) Koons

Amelia's husband Devault Koons was disowned by the Quakers for marrying someone closer than a second cousin. They may be 1st cousins with a common grandfather or first cousins once removed with a common grandfather for one and great-grandfather for the other. Amelia may be through the female line with a different surname.

In 1840 Milly Koons, age 40-49, lived in Morgan Co., IN (page 118) with 1 son, age 10-15, one son 15-20, and one daughter 15-20.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

A HISTORY OF SOUTH UNION CHURCH

This information has been prepared from newspaper articles, of Aug. 1938, Concerning Community Churches. One of the earliest churches in the county was the South Union Church. It was 1st organized in 1833 as a New Light Church, and afterwards reorganized with Ellettsville Church as Disciples of Christ or Christian Churches in 1928.

The 1st church house was a primitive log structure erected in 1833, and was strictly a house of worship but later used as a school house for a number of years. The Log Church stood north and south, with a rough hewn door in the north end and one on the east side. The seats were split logs, smoothed on one side made with wooden pegs as legs to hold them up. Candle-racks, made of two pieces of board nailed together, hung on the walls and candlelight was their lighting system. Their heating system was also a simple affair - two cast iron stoves furnished the heat on the cold winter days.

This Log House stood a little to the southwest of the present building, built in 1922, and the area was referred to as the old cemetery. In front of the Log House and to the west of the present building was then the public highways, and still exist at the Rockport Road and the Duvall Road.

Charter members, as they were called ' include James Shipman; James Wright, Sr.; John Goodnight; John P. May; Mrs. Mary Hoover; Capt. Wm. May; and Wm. Gray. The 1st elders were James Shipman and James Wright, Sr.; Capt. Wm. May was the 1st preacher in the Log House.

Among the prominent families who worshipped in the 1st church were the James Wrights; John P. Mays; Colman Rushs; John Berrys; Solomon Phillips; John Phillips; John Rushes; G. Campbell; Edd Borlands; Isaac Lanes; James Rileys; Gaspar Koonts; Michael Thrashers; Henry Henslevs; Seth Goodman; James Davis; George Chaplain; and the Lewis Shryers.

In 1856, the members changed the Log Building to a Frame Structure. Donations of framing lumber were from Capt. John Ketcham and John Koontz, Sr. Thomas Rush was great help with the carpentry.

One of the ministers was James Blankenship and he held on service in 1867, with 60 persons attending. A minister from Greene County, Henry Floyd, preached at South Union Church at different times during 19 years of his 51 years of ministry, and mostly traveled on horseback for the total estimated 92,000 miles, with the total cash earnings for those years as $2,970.00.

In 1876, Allen Philpott, was a regular minister and continued for several years. Other ministers were Henry Grutsinger; Henry Griffin; Allen Trusty; George Rader; and Dr. W. L. Luck.

The Frame House was torn down in 1922 and the present structure erected at a cost of $5, 300.00 plus the donated work by the people of the community. However,. The church was paid for leaving no debt hanging over the members. Dr. O.M. Morris; H.B. Baker; and W.O. Duvall were the principal leaders in the erecting of the new church. In 1930, the minister was Dr. Maynard F. Poling, while studying medicine at I.U. In the 1938 News Item, the Rev E.T.

McCurry was the pastor, and the officers were: Jesse

Edson; and Luther Turner; S.M. Anderson, and Cletus Greene were the Elders, with W.O. Duvall; Merle Butcher; Howard May; and Austin Ferguson as the deacons. Rev. Clark S. Thomas was the next minister, on a bi-weekly basis, while sharing ministry duties at the Hindustan Christian Church. I personally remember Rev. Linton, Dr. Poland, Rev. McCurry, and Rev. Clark S. Thomas, who baptized me at the 1st Christian Church in 1940.

Members of the church have paid tribute to Prof. Ernest Linton, of I.U. Faculty. He ministered nine years in succession, always contributing his own salary toward the new building, and was the 1st to purpose the erection of the new building. The News Item Material was gathered by S.H. Anderson (Sam Anderson to many of us). An additional article, supplied by W.F. Ferguson (a member affiliated for 40 years with the church) gave information that four governing officials deserved attention for the support they gave to the South Union Church. They were Elder Jacob M. Carmichael, born 1838 and died in Dec. 1906 in Bloomington; Paris Koonts; Mac Rush; and John H. Koontz, united shoulder to shoulder in 1870, and continued actively involved. They were born, married, reared families, and were laid to rest near the little country church they loved, today we can say-we have the same type loyal members and community involvement in keeping this wonderful church active.

I have prepared this history form scrap book clippings, preserved by Mrs. Marie Trisler, my husband's (Harold) mother, while their family lived in this community.

Thank you for your attention,

Mrs. June (Hazel) Trisler

Notes for Parnell Bales

According to Charles Elmer Bales, 1931, Lineage of the Bales Family (compiled by Thomas D. Hamm): Parnell Bales, second son of Jacob and Sarah Mulvaney Bales, became a great hunter in the early days of Indiana - not only for the pleasure of hunting, but because the family was absolutely in need of the meat. At that time the woods of Indiana were full of all kinds of wild game, such as wild turkeys, deer, bear; and the cry of the treacherous and much dreaded panther was almost as common as the hoot of the owl. When but a small boy, I used to love to climb upon my father's knee and have him tell me stories of the Pioneer days of Indiana when he was a boy. One of the stories that impressed me most was of his brother, Parnell, who, when he was returning home through the woods from a visit to a neighbor, the right-of-way was disputed by a panther; but the trusty old flint lock rifle was brought into action, and the boy came off the winner. In after years, this boy became a man of wonderful will power and a great character. - Charles Elmer Bales, 1931, Lineage of the Bales Family (compiled by Thomas D. Hamm)

In 1830 Henry Co., IN census (page 59) Parnell (Parnal Bates) lived between George Koonse and John Koonse with wife at age 20-30 and two sons (5-10), one son (0-5), and 2 daughters (0-5).

Bio:

John Smith was born in Rowan County, North Carolina around 1800. In March of 1822 he married Elizabeth Martha Koonts or Koons. She was born in 1806 and was the daughter of George Koonts and Mary Elisabeth Eller. In the fall of 1823 the family of George Koonts and John Smith moved to Henry County, Indiana where John worked as a road supervisor and farmer. Around 1837 or 38 they moved to Adams County, Illinois. children born to this family were Mary, who married George Greybil [Graybill], Patience who married Levi Greybil [Graybill], Hannah who married Perry Omen, James Saxton and George Greybil, Elizabeth Martha who married John Winegar, Lydia married Peter Frain, Nathan Sanford and John Sharpe. Stephen married Mary Catherine Frain. Samuel Joseph married Rachel Yokum, two sons died in infancy.

After the death of his wife Elisabeth in Adams County, he married Sarah Winegar. Their children were Rhoda Ann, Hiram, Samuel Carolos [Lot] and Abraham who married Olive Melissa Knopp. Several children died in infancy.

In the fall of 1847 Stephen Smith helped some friends and relatives move to Council Bluffs and he stayed there through the winter. Due to illness in the family and bad weather John Smith did not come all the way until April of 1848. He built the first house in what is now known as Macedonia Township and lived there six or seven years, In 1853 or 4 he built a house in Grove Township. He build a saw mill on Farm Creek and on Jordon Creek. Up until then the pioneers had been making their houses of round logs. However, the elements were against him and his saw mills were either washed away or damaged so badly he gave it up and devoted his life to farming. We know that he had a kind heart because when the Mormons were sick and starving out along the Platte he and some of his sons took some grain to the mill to be ground and took it to them so they could bake bread at least.

He served several terms as commissioner of his township and was a member of the County Board when the courthouse at Council Bluffs was built.

Notes for Martha Koons

In 1900 Martha Lived on Broad Street, Henry, Henry Co., IN with a servant; his son Thomas and family lived next door.

Notes for John Russell Millikan

John moved to Henry Co., IN in 1835. He became a prominent citizen of the area, serving as Justice of the Peace 8 years, member of the State Legislature, and one of the organizers of the Citizens National Bank of New Castle, IN. In 1850 they lived in Liberty Township, Henry Co. In 1860 he lived in Liberty Township, Henry Co., IN (page 122); Martha's mother lived with the family. In 1880 he farmed in Liberty Township (page 199) with his wife Martha and son Isaac.

Hon. John Russell Millikan's opportunities for an education in early life were very limited and he grew to manhood on his father's farm. With a desire to improve his condition and believing this could be better accomplished in a free state, he went to Henry County, Indiana, in 1835, and settled one mile northwest of Hillsboro. During the summer he engaged in farming yet availed himself of every opportunity to improve his mind. In 1842, he removed with his family to Hancocke County, Indiana. In 1845, he moved back to Henry County, and purchased a farm on Flatrock, where he added to his agricultural employment a blacksmithing establishment, being something of an expert at this trade.

In 1853, he purchased and removed to what may be called the Millikan homestead, in Liberty township, where for many years he successfully managed his farming interests, adding to this pork packing. In 1854, he was elected Justice of the Peace, and was subsequently re-elected serving eight years. He was many times a delegate to state conventions of the political party to which he belonged. His political duties were performed with fidelity to his constituents without being a bitter partisan. His decision and rulings when Justice of the Peace were remarkable for their firmness and impartiality. In 1868, Mr. Millikan was elected by the Republicans of Henry county, as Representative in the Legislature of the state and took his seat January 7, 1869. During this session he was an earnest and active member, gave close attention to legislative proceedings and voted intelligently and conscientously on all public issues. He was chairman of the very important committee on roads, and introduced a bill authorizing the assessment of lands for the construction of plank, macadamized and gravel highways. At the special session of the Legislature, held the same year, his bill became law, and by virtue of it, hundreds of gravel roads were constructed in the state. A special session of the Legislature was called April 10, 1869, at which Mr. Millikan voted for the Fifteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. He was always consistently opposed to the payment of the claim of the Morgan raid bill which was pending during his service.

In 1870 he was again elected as Representative from his county, and during the session became an active and influential member, serving on the committee on roads, canals and public expenditures. This committee investigated the management of all the State Institutions. In 1873 the Citizens State Bank of Newcastle was organized, and Mr. Millikan, who was a stockholder in the institution, was elected its President and continued in that position for many years. By industry and economy he amassed a competency, and was always kind and charitable to the less fortunate. He was always a warm friend of education and served many years as school trustee. When the question of free schools was first agitated, and when the matter was submitted to a vote of the people, he and two others were the only persons in Liberty township who voted for the free school system. He was a firm believer in the Christian religion, and with his estimable wife, always an advocate of temperance and all moral reform, and in all the relations of life was upright and respected. He was fortunate in his business, official and domestic life, and few were more deserving of success. He was the father of eight children, two of whom have died (1903), one being a sacrifice on the altar of his country.

John Smith, the father, resided there for eight years or more, and in the fall of 1853 or 1854 became a resident of Grove township, settling on section 8, where he continued to reside until his death occurred, in 1870, when he was seventy-two years of age. His remains were interred in the cemetery of the Latter Day Saints in Grove township. He was a farmer by occupation and at one time he built the first saw-mill on Farm creek, which he operated for several years, thus becoming associated with the industrial development as well as the agricultural interests of the county. In politics he was originally a Whig, but upon the dissolution of that party became a Republican. He served for several terms as supervisor from his township and was a member of the county board when the first courthouse at Council Bluffs was built. As a determined pioneer and influential citizen he was well known in this county. His birth had occurred in North Carolina and he had resided for some time in Indiana prior to coming to Iowa. The wife, who bore the maiden name of Elizabeth Martha Koonts, was born in Indiana, and from that state they removed to Adams county, Illinois, where the death of Mrs. Smith occurred, in 1840.

Stephen Smith was born in Henry county, Indiana, January 28, 1836. His father wedded a second time, having wedded Miss Sarah Winegar in Adams county, Illinois, after losing his first wife. She accompanied her husband to Pottawattamie county and died here in 1882. By the two marriages there were seven sons and six daughters. Those of the family who came to Pottawattamie county were: Mary, Patience, Hannah, Elizabeth, Lydia, Rhoda, Anna, Stephen, Joseph, Hiram, Carlos and Abraham. Two brothers of the family died in early childhood. Of the children Stephen, Lydia and Abraham are still living, the sister being a resident of Cheyenne county Kansas, while the brother makes his home in northwestern Nebraska.

Stephen Smith was eleven years of age when he came with his father to Pottawattamie county. In Illinois he had attended subscription schools, but owing to the fact that this county was a frontier district in which the homes were widely scattered he had no educational advantages in this locality. He has always followed farming as a life work. In early days he underwent the hardships, privations and experiences incident to pioneer life and performed the arduous task necessary to the development of a new farm , but as the years passed he was very successful and now is enabled to live retired in the enjoyment of all of the comforts and some of the luxuries of life.

In Mills county, Iowa, Mr. Smith was married to Miss Mary C. Frain, who was born May 31, 1837, and was brought to Iowa at an early period in its development when about five years of age. The family home was established in Cedar county, where both father and mother died. To her husband she has been a faithful companion and helpmate on life's journey and they have reared a family of five children: Henry A., living in Macedonia; George M., of Fremont county, Iowa; Mrs. Clara V. Bogue, of Eagle county, Colorado; Willard E., a farmer of Macedonia township; and Arthur J., at home.

Mr. Smith of this review was reared in the faith of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, but is not connected therewith at the present time. In politics he is an earnest Republican, having supported the party since casting his first presidential vote for Abraham Lincoln. He has served in various township offices and as township trustee altogether for about seventeen years, a fact which indicates his fidelity to duty and the confidence and trust reposed in him by his fellowmen. Wherever known he is held in high esteem and his good qualities entitle him to the record which is uniformly given him, while his close application and industry in business have justly merited the success that has came to him through his farming operations

---------------------------------

Hazzard's History of Henry County, pages 1177 and 1178 - FRANK M. MILLIKAN

Frank M. Millikan, a citizen of Indianapolis, was born December 2, 1851, on his father's farm in Liberty township, Henry County, Indiana, near New Castle. he is the son of John R. and Martha (Koons) Millikan, the former of Scotch-Irish and the latter of German descent. Mr. Millikan is fortunate in his ancestry, no race combination possessing in greater degree those elements of brain and brawn which exert a healthy and ennobling influence in solving the problems of life and in elevating the standard of citizenship.

He received his early education in the common schools of Henry County and the academies of New Castle and Spiceland. These institutions were semi-collegiate and had their societies of which he was a member. His aptitude for acquiring knowledge attracted the attention of his teachers, and at the early age of seventeen years he was elected to the position of teacher, over one of his then preceptors in the New Castle Academy. He engaged in teaching for several terms, meanwhile working on his father's farm and attending the academies to secure a more thorough education.

While the academy rated lower than the college, young Millikan's business education made up for every deficiency, besides he had acquired a knowledge of human nature which has contributed greatly to his success in life - something that is not found in the university curriculum, and for which no amount of Greek or Latin is a substitute. To read men and fathom their motives is to a certain extent intuitive, but experience adds largely to such acquirements, and in business it is a qualification in the highest degree valuable, preventing serious mistakes and often solving most complex problems in human affairs. Mr. Millikan's early ambition was to become a lawyer. He contemplated attending a law school for that purpose, but his business qualifications attracted the attention of Thomas S. Lines, ex-representative and treasurer-elect of Henry County, and he became his deputy treasurer, serving in that capacity also under William S. Bedford and Thomas I. Howren, succeeding treasurers, in which position he became well known as prompt in business and courteous in demeanor, qualities of head and heart which the people appreciated, an evidence of which was manifested by the Republicans of Henry County, who nominated him for county treasurer, April 1, 1878, by a large plurality over his competitors, when but twenty six years of age, to which office he was afterwards elected.

Mr. Millikan has always been a staunch Republican. He has worked with unfaltering zeal for the welfare of his party, and his abilities have been appreciated. In 1884 he was appointed a member of the Republican State Executive Committee, serving in that capacity and as secretary of the Republican State Committee until January, 1898. He was its secretary from July, 1889, to January 1894, of that period, and was chairman of the executive committee in the great campaign of 1896. He was closely identified with both nominations of President Harrison in the campaigns of 1888 and in 1896. In the Republican State Convention of 1896, Mr. Millikan was elected delegate-at-large from Indiana to the St. Louis Convention by a large representative vote, receiving the full delegate vote of twenty eight counties and one half or more of the delegate vote of twenty five other counties, an evidence of popularity and confidence of which he might feel justly proud; but Mr. Millikan, having chosen business pursuits for his life work, has not sought, by election or appointment, preferment in political life.

In December, 1893, he accepted the responsible position of special loan agent for Indiana of the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance company, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which position he still occupies, lending a million or more dollars annually for said company, whose business has prospered in his field until the aggregate of its loans in the State is from five to six millions of dollars. Such facts bear eloquent testimony regarding Mr. Millikan's business qualifications and his fealty to the great institution which he represents.

Mr. Millikan is a man whose superb physique would attract attention anywhere, and bespeaks robust health, incalculable endurance and application to business and these are characteristic attributes of him. He is a member of the Columbia club of Indianapolis. In social life he responds to all its amenities in a way that makes his beautiful home on North Delaware Street, Indianapolis, the center of elegant refinement.

On September 16, 1874, Mr. Millikan was married to Emma F. Boyd, daughter of William and Hanna (Peed) Boyd, of Henry County. One son, Harry Boyd Millikan blessed this union, who as a member of the 27th Battery, Indiana Volunteers - old Battery A, of Indianapolis - under Captain Curtis, served his country creditably in the war with Spain, and had a taste of soldier life in Puerto Rico. Mrs. Millikan, the mother of Harry, died August 22, 1888. On February 25, 1897, Mr. Millikan married Elma Elliott Barbour, daughter of Evans Elliott, deceased, who was a Mexican War soldier, and who died a merchant, resident at Shelbyville, Indiana..............."

Notes for Emma Florence Boyd

Pages 1179 and 1180, Hazzard's History of Henry County, IN -an excerpt from Ancestry of Emma Florence (Boyd) Millikan

"Too much cannot be said in praise of the sweet, gentle and saintly character of Emma Florence (Boyd) Millikan. Deprived of a mother's love and protection at an early age, the great responsibilities of caring for her father's household, on the death of his second wife, devolved upon her when she was twelve years old, but with a brave heart she took up the duties and carried forward the work in all of its departments with skill beyond her years. She was the light and life of the household and her young womanhood was crowned with deeds of love and labor performed for those near and dear to her. In the few brief years of wifehood and motherhood that were allotted her, she was all in all, so that when Death claimed her, it was hard, indeed, for those who loved her so to realize that her bright smile and cheery words and loving kindnesses were gone from their lives forever, and as was said by one of the members of the Woman's Working Society of the Christian Church, of which she was a devoted member, "the voice of one of our sweetest singers is hushed to earth's music." Her remains as well as those of all of the above who are deceased are buried in the Batson Cemetery.

In September, 1867, she united with the Christian Church at Flatrock and after her marriage and removal to New Castle she was an attendant and supporter of the same denomination there and a loyal member of its societies but until her death she retained her membership with the Flatrock church with which she first pledged her faith to God.

In 1868-9 she attended the New Castle Academy, then under the direction of that well remembered educator, the Reverend Henry M. Shockley. In 1870-1 she taught in the New Castle Academy when Professor George W. Hufford, now of Indianapolis, was principal. In the Winter of 1871-2 and again in 1872-3, she taught school at Millville, in Liberty Township, being associated as teacher in the school for both terms with her future husband, Frank M. Millikan. In the Summer of 1872, she taught a private or subscription school at Millville. Prior to the winter school at Millville, in 1871-2, she taught two subscription schools in her home neighborhood at the old Devon church.

No woman ever lived in Henry County who left a wider circle of friends than Emma Florence (Boyd) Millikan. To know her was to love her."

Notes for Elma Elliott

Elma was previously married to Mr. Barbour.

Children of Francis Marion (Frank) Millikan and Emma Florence Boyd were as follows:

+ 810 i Harry Boyd10 Millikan, born 28 Jun 1875 in IN; died 23 May 1935 in Miami, Dade Co., FL; buried in Batson Cemetery. Millville, Henry Co., IN. He married Ruth Sophia Johnson.

He married (1) on 26 Oct 1877 Mary Alice Peed, born 16 Feb 1853 in Henry Co., IN; died 25 Jul 1902 in New Castle, Henry Co., IN; buried in Batson Cemetery.

Notes for Thomas Benton Millikan

In 1880 Thomas was assistant bank cashier in New Castle, Henry Co., IN (page 164) with his wife Alice. In 1900 he was an assistant bank cashier on Broad Street, Henry, Henry Co., IN with Alice and 3 children; his mother lived net door.

Hazzard's History of Henry County, pages 1178-1179

Thomas Benton Millikan, the fourth son of John R., and Martha (Koons) Millikan, was born on his father's farm in Liberty Township, Henry County, Indiana, March 28, 1854. He was reared on the farm and as a boy did his proper share of the farm work. He obtained his early education inthe commor or district school and afterwards attended the public schools of New Castle, at the time they were under the efficient direction of Professor George W. Hufford, now of Indianapolis, and for many years a teacher in the Shortridge High School of that city. Mr. Millikan also attended the Holbrook Normal School at Lebanon, Ohio. His school days ended in 1874 and in September of that year, he entered the service of the Citizens' State Bank of New Castle, as assistant cashier.

In 1891, when James N. Huston, of Connersville, Indiana, resigned the treasurer-ship of the United States and Enos H. nebeker, of covington, Indiana, was appointed to succeed him, the latter selected Thomas B. Millikan as his representative to count with others the cash in the United States Treasury, preliminary to the transfer of the office to Mr. Nebeker. This selection was highly complimentary to Mr. Millikan, who accepted the trust and spent the time from May 20 to July 1, 1891, in Washington, D.C., ascertaining the balance in the treasury and during that period handled funds or their equivalent, amounting to over $614,000,000.

From 1894 to 1902, both inclusive, he served as the State Bank Examiner of Indiana, an office, the duties of which are very onerous and responsible, involving a complete examination into the condition of each of the several State banks. Mr. Millikan discharged the duties of this position with such signal ability that during his eight years' incumbency only one or two such institutions of the State failed in business.

(Two paragraphs omitted)

Ever since attaining his majority, he has been a member of the Republican party and very active in support of the party principles and policies. In the Republican State Convention of 1902, he was a prominent candidate for the nomination of Treasurer of the State of Indiana. There were four candidates for this position and though Mr. Millikan was unsuccessful in his candidacy, he stook next in order on the ballot to the winner of the nomination. He has been for twenty two years continously a member of the Henry County Republican Central Committee. He is still comparatively a young man and with his assured standing in financial and political circles, his future career bids fair to equal, if it does not surpass, that of any of his contemporaries. He is an attendant upon the services of the Christian Church and is a member of the fraternal orders, belonging to Crescens Lodge, Number 33, Knights of Pythias, of which he served for several years as trustee; he is also a member of Iroquois Tribe, Number 97, Improved Order of Red Men, and of New Castle Lodge, Number 484, Benevolent Protective Order of Elks.

On October 26, 1877, Thomas Benton Millikan and Alice, daughter of the late James C. and Martha Jane (Boyd) Peed, were united in marriage, the ceremony being performed by Elder William J. Howe, of the Christian Church. James C. Peed was the son of the late well known James Peed, and Martha Jane (Boyd) Peed was the daughter of Robert and Narcissa Boyd, old settlers of Liberty Township, Henry County, and a sister of James M. Boyd, now on the staff of the rural route carriers, with headquarters at New Castle.

Thomas B. and Alice (Peed) Millikan were the parents of three children, namely: John R., born September 8, 1884, who is now an employee of the Citizens' State Bank of New Castle; Louise, born April 5, 1892; and Martha Janet, born March 10, 1897; the daughters are each accomplished far beyond their years are are possessed of delightful dispositions, happy amid their pleasant surroundings and the pride of their father, who since the death of their mother has given to them and to their education his loving and devoted attention. They are admired and beloved by all who know them."

Notes for Mary Alice Peed

Hazzard's History of Henry County, pages 1178-1179, bio of Thomas Benton Millikan - an excerpt on Alice Peed Millikan, pages 1179 and 1180:

"Alice (Peed) Millikan, his beloved wife, died July 25, 1902. She joined the Flatrock Christian Church in 1870. She was educated in the country schools of Liberty Township and in the New Castle High School. In 1874-5 she taught school in the Boyd school house in Liberty Township. She was a woman of high character but of a domestic disposition and was wrapped up in the happiness of her family; and when the light of her life went out, grief and sorrow filled the household; she too rests in that most beautiful of rural cities of the dead, Batson Cemetery, where, with but one or two exceptions, all of the dead of the Millikan family are buried. Further reference might be made to the Peed family and to the ancestry of Mrs. Alice (Peed) Millikan, but as the civil history of Liberty Township can never be properly considered nor written without extended notice of the Peed and Boyd families, further reference to them is not made here."

Jacob Myers Obituary

MYERS, Dr. Jacob L.

"Fairfield Ledger", June 8, 1887, Pg. 3, Cols. 3-4

DEATH OF DR. MYERS. At his home in this city Thursday evening passed away one of Jefferson County's pioneers, a man largely identified with the history of both town and country, Dr. Jacob L. MYERS....

Dr. MYERS was born in Fluvanna County, Virginia, March 20th, 1814. At an early age he removed with his father's family to Washington County, Tennessee, where he grew to manhood. His education was largely secured in that state, although it was supplemented by a course of study in Kentucky, where the young man began the study of medicine and entered upon its practice. Later, becoming dissatisfied with the working of the old school, he removed to Cincinnati and began the study of the botanic system, which he practiced during the remainder of his life. He again returned to Tennessee, and finally removed to Frankfort, Indiana, where he resided two years. In 1837 Dr. MYERS came to Iowa, and landed at Burlington, and was henceforth identified with the young state....

His residence in Fairfield began in 1846, and with the exception of three years spent in California it has been continuous... Dr. MYERS was married four times, and was the father of 20 children, only six of whom are now living. His first wife, to whom he was married in Tennessee, was a daughter of Rev. L. G. BELL, one of the earliest preachers in this county, and the founder of a Presbyterian seminary for ladies, which long ago fell into decay.

His second wife was Mary RAMSAY, married in 1855, and his third marriage was to Eliza KOONS, in 1859. November 25th, 1880, he was united in marriage with Miss Rachel L. ROBINSON, who survives him. A man of unusual talent and excellent education, he was a leading spirit in the community for many years, and a most successful practitioner... The funeral occurred Saturday afternoon from the Methodist Church... Remains interred with Masonic honors.
