On Saturday afternoon were married at the Jesuits' church Miss Blanche Pitard and Mr. Frank L. Coffee of California. Mr. Coffee is a direct descendant of General Andrew Jackson, and was born and raised in Claiborne county, Miss., but is now living with his family in California. Miss Pitard is a charming young Creole girl of the well-known Pitard family, and carries with her the best wishes of hundreds of warm friends. Her only attendants at the ceremony were her two little cousins, George and Inez Pitard. The ushers were Mr. Louis Pitard and Dr. J. Moore Soniat. The severe illness of Mr. Coffee's father hastened the marriage and interfered materially with the plans of the wedding. Numbers of friends and acquaintances who did not receive invitations will understand that this is the cause of their failure to arrive.

The marriage of Miss Julia Pitard to Capt. Enrique Portas Ramierz, of the Mexican navy, was solemnized on Saturday last at the Jesuits' Church. In spite of the rain which was falling in torrents, the church was thronged with teh friends of the happy couple, thus testifying to their popularity and the high esteem in which they are held. Miss Pitard was attended by little Miss Vertilee Stanton and little Miss Inez Pitard as flower girls. The bridesmaids were Miss Blanche Pitard, Miss Louise Theard, Miss Mamie Fitzpatrick, Zulmee Dunbar and Agatha Pitard. The groomsmen were Messrs. Manuel Zamora, Louis Pitard, Louis Petitpain, Andrew Fitzpatrick, Daniel M. Pitard, Pedro Solis (Vice Consul of Spain), J. Moore Soniat du Fossat, L. Imhold and J. Frois officiated as ushers. The bride, who is a pretty, attractive brunette, looked extremely lovely in a handsome white gros grain, elegant in its rich simplicity. The soft white veil of tulle was caught up at the side of the coiffure by an aigrette of orange blossoms and diamond ornament. The pretty bridesmaids were clad respectively in cream, blue and rose satin. Father Hubert made a very touching and apropos address to the couple, after which he pronounced them man and wife, then the sweet soprano notes of Mrs Witham were re-echoed through the church in a lovely Ave Maria. After the religious ceremony the bridal party proceeded to the bride's residence, where a reception followed, including only a limited number of friends and relatives. Capt. Portas Ramirez has taken unto himself, in the person of his lovely bride, a rare treasure of which he is well worthy. The young couple left after Mardi Gras for a bridal tour of three months, most of which time will be spent in travel.

There are several Savage immigrants to the eastern shore of Virginia, but I've seen no clear study of their families which lead to him. I rely here mostly on the history of James Cochran Savage, and family tradition. Neither cites sources to connect this man clearly to his father's generation.
I don't see him in the 1790 or 1800 US census anywhere. "James Savage" does appear on the 1800 KY census as a taxpayer, however, in Mason Co.
Was he a Revolutionary War soldier? This could also very well be wishful genealogy, though some county histories do say so. No-one has used him to join the DAR. His brother John fought in the French and Indian War under Washington in his Virginia company.
This is about his Great-grandson, which seems to tell something about him as well:
Harrison B. Savage, M. D., Galena, is a son of Dr. Charles Smith Savage and Elizabeth P. (Burgess) Savage. His father was born in Germantown, Mason county, Kentucky, Dec. 8, 1829, the son of James Phillips Savage and Sallie (Currens) Savage. James Phillips Savage was born in Virginia Jan. 16, 1792, a son of James and Mary (Phillips) Savage, both of whom were born in Virginia, whence they came to Kentucky at a very early date. The Savage family is of Welsh origin. The father of James Savage was a Revolutionary soldier. James Phillips Savage came to Kentucky with his widowed mother and, her eleven other children in 1799, in a covered wagon, and settled near Maysville, then called Limestone.

This volume is identified at the Kansas State Historical Society as microfilm LM195. It is a two-part volume 3.)
"Mrs. Williams is a daughter of John P. Savage, a son of James Savage, of Revolutionary fame, he having served throughout the entire struggle for independence. After the close of the war, in 1791, James Savage removed from Virginia to Kentucky, with his wife and children. Settlement was made at Poplar Flat, Lewis County, Kentucky, some fourteen miles above Maysville. There Mr. Savage improved a fine farm from the virgin wilderness and in those early pioneer days it was necessary to barricade the doors against the attacks of Indians. The old homestead is now owned by the fifth generation of his descendants and the old log cabin built by him in the early days is still a part of the family residence. A fact worthy of record here is that during the many years which have elapsed since the time of the immigration of James Savage to Kentucky not a single death occurred in the house from disease until a few years ago. James Savage continued to reside on his homestead during the remainder of his life, and prior to his death, through thrift and industry, he had accumulated a large property, owning at one time a great number of slaves. His wife, whose maiden name was Mary Phillips, was a native Virginian and was descended from King Philip, of England. To Mr. and Mrs. James Savage were born eight children--six sons and two daughters."
--BTW, there has never been a King Philip of England.
From a History of Lewis Co., Kentucky:
"February Court term of 1834 . . . The following rather peculiar, though perhaps valuable, record was made in the order book of the Lewis County Court: "The following persons are the only heirs of James P. Savage, deceased: Pleasant M. Savage, James Savage, John P. Savage, Francis Asbury Savage, Samuel P. Savage, William P. Savage, Mary Jane Johnson, late Mary Stout, the daughter and only child of Sally Stout, who, previous to her marriage, was Sally Savage and the daughter of the above-named James Savage, deceased; and James A. Frizzell, Alexander Frizzell, and Margaret Frizzell, children of Polly W. Frizzell, deceased, who was, previous to her marriage, Polly W. Savage and the daughter of the above-named James P. Savage, deceased."
This makes his middle initial "P."

Other Tomlinsons, maybe or maybe not related:
There is a Tomlinson Cemetery in Heflin, Bienville Parish, Louisiana. There was a Chisholm family from St. Landry Parish.
Nathaniel and Elizabeth/Isabel Tomlinson from Natchez appear in New Orleans judicial records around the year 1800.
John Chappell Tomlinson died in 1845 in Nacogdoches, m. to Margaret. His family was from Georgia. Leonard Tomlinson was a son of John Chappell. A biography of William Chisholm's grandson Edgar Austere says that William Chisholm's family was from in Georgia, as does his obituary.￼ William Chisholm's wife Tabitha Knight appears as a citizen in the Republic of Texas (1836-1845), along with "Leonard Tomlinson" and "Aaron Tomlinson." I have not seen evidence to connect John Chappell's family to William Chisholm's family, however.
Tomlinsons appear in newspapers before 1825 in Georgia newspapers.
According to family researcher Karen Theriot, a son of Thomas Tomlinson and "Geuty" (Gertrude or Margaret?) named Jesse "acted as sponsor or witness on William's family records." Hebert's Southwest Lousiana Records names Jesse's father as Thomas Tombleson and Jesse's mother as "Guerty." Jesse Tomlinson appears elsewhere on this site connected via other family in St. Mary Parish. See him for more information.
I have not seen any evidence to connect these three families - Jesse's, William Chisholm's, and John Chappell's.

This is a long note that talks about a lot of Mannen families in Bracken & Mason counties, to sort out their ancestries. If you’re interested, keep scrolling down . . .
He is on the Kentucky Mysteries page. There are a number of Mannens in Mason and Bracken counties, but I can't identify them as family.
I think that I do, however, have an answer to his mother's identity. Please see under her page for my logic.
Overall, here's what I (think I) know about him and possible relations. I list all that I can discover about Mannens in Kentucky from the eighteenth century on to sort these families out.
His name is "Mannon" in Kendall (246).￼ Mannan, Manning and other variants exist. I would request a death record, but death records from Bracken Co. for 1879 don't exist: see http://www.kdla.ky.gov/research.htm.
[While Manning is a possible variant of my Mannen family's name, note that there is a different John Manning family in Kentucky that can be identified as different in part because they are Catholic. They were from St. Mary's County in Maryland, beginning with a Cornelius Manning. John Manning was b. abt. 1745 in St. Mary's Co. and left there in the early 1790s for Kentucky, where he lived in Washington Co. (later Marion Co.). His son Joseph married there in 1792, and his son Mark bought land there in 1801. Susan Manning, one of Joseph's daughters, was born there in 1794, and in 1812, in St. Genevieve, Missouri, married Thomas "Seemes," a descendant of the (Catholic) Semmes family from southern Maryland, whose descent is described by Newman.￼ John and his family moved to Perry Co., Missouri in about 1803 (it was part of France at that time), and John died there in 1813.]
A John Mannon or Mannan, born in King George Co., Virginia on 15 Oct. 1752, served in the Revolution; see pension claim # 9538, placed on the pension roll in 1833. He is listed as a taxpayer the same county in the 1780s. He was buried in Harrison Co., Indiana. He had 9 children, including a son named John born in 1791 - of an age to be this John's father, but there doesn't seem to be connection. And according to the genealogical abstract of his pension file, his family moved from Virginia to Indiana in about 1816.￼
A John Mannen was an early settler at Fort Boonesborough/Boone's Station in 1775.
A John Mannen was married to a Mary Moore on January 1, 1795, in Berks Co., Pennsylvania, by Matthias Kaler.
On the 1800 census for Mason County "John Mannon" appears as a taxpayer .
A typescript entitled "The John Mannen Genealogy" by Mabel Irene Huggins describes the family of a John Mannen Sr. m. to Elizabeth Cooley who lived in what is now Ontario, CA; his dates are not known, but their oldest child was born 1806. I seriously doubt that this is my family.
The first time John Mannen, or any Mannen/Mannon etc., appears in the Mason Co. Wills and Estate index is in Oct. 1804, when John Mannen, Samuel Frazee, and Benjamin Hiatt are named in an estate inventory for John Scott (dated 27 Aug. 1804, recorded Oct. 1804).￼
On 6 Apr. 1809 a "John Mannon" married Sarah Washburn in Adams Co., Ohio (the reference is vague for this).
The 1810 census in Kentucky lists a John Mannen in Mason Co.
On 22 Sept. 1812, John Mannon and Thomas T[ollley] Worthington served as witnesses for the will of John Watson.￼ Note that a Thomas Mannen married Thomas Tolley's daughter Rachel; she was born in 1800. I've seen his birthdate listed, unsourced, as 1798. Note also that a Thomas Mannen exists, aged 51, married to a Susan, aged 42, in the 1850 census for Mason Co. The fact that Mannon and Worthington appear together here suggests a family relation, though I don't know how they might be related to this John Mannen.
In the War of 1812 a sergeant "John Mannan" served in Capt. Dowden's company of Pogue's Kentucky Volunteers in the War of 1812; he enlisted Aug. 27, 1812 to Sept. 26, 1812. Another "John Mannan" served as a private in Robert Crutchfield's detachment of the Virginia Militia (a pretty big coincidence with the marriage of 1814). A Thomas H. Mannen also served in 1812, in the 40th Kentucky regiment, as a Major.
In 1814 a John Mannen married Charity Critchfield (Crihfield) in Mason Co. (see below; this is likely to be a son of the John Mannen who m. Elizabeth Hughes).
In 1819, a John Mannen is listed as leaving an estate in Mason Co., and as having left a will.￼ Query: Who is this?
The 1820 Census from Mason Co, Kentucky seems to be key here, though without further help it's just a list of names. There are several groups living near each other: Jas Pollock, Jos Pollock; and then several lines later, all as heads of household: Jno Mannon, Sra Perkins, Jas Mannon, Jno Mannon Jr. What might help, if it is possible, is to look at deeds for land. I don't know how to do this.
A John Mannen Sr. died in in 1822. This would most logically be the man on the 1820 census, with his sons after him. His will lists the following as his family, including John Sr. and eight children; no wife is named (presumably she pre-deceased him):
John Mannen, d. Summer 1822, Mason Co., Kentucky. The will is in Will Book E, on pages 296-97:
| James Mannen, b. before 1801
| John Mannen, b. before 1801
| Elizabeth Mannen, b. before 1801 (m. William Thomas on 26 Feb. 1816 in Mason Co., KY)
| Catherine Mannen, b. before 1801 (m. William Neale on 23 Nov. 1815, in Mason Co., KY)
| Thomas Mannen, b. before 1801
| Patty Mannen, b. after 1801
| Sidney Mannen, b. after 1801
| Nancy Mannen, b. after 1801
The names "Neale" and "Thomas" are recorded in the will.
The birth dates I give here assume that the age of majority is 21, which would make abt. 1801 here. I assume this because in the will he says (for instance, in one clause), that "my son Sidney Mannen shal have five hundred dollards of my estate when he arrives at the age of 21 years," and later in another clause that "then all of the balance of my estate shall remain in the lands of my sons John and Thomas Mannen until my daughter Nancy Mannen should get married or arrive to the age of twenty one years." John and Thomas are definitely 21; Patty's age is not mentioned, but he requested that "my daughter Patty, my son Sidney, and Nancy is to be reasonably educated, clothed, and supported out of my estate by my executors." The exectors are John Mannen and Thomas Mannen, presumably the two children here.
It is logical that this John Mannen d. 1822 is the John Mannen who is the HOH on the 1820 census for Mason Co., living on the other side of Sara Perkins from his sons James and John Jr. It also makes sense that the John Mannen on the 1810 census is also John Mannen Sr. d. 1822. James and John Jr. did not have their own households by then.
But: the problem of fitting my John as the son of John d. 1822 is that the dates don't jibe. My John was born in 1814 according to his gravestone and every census after 1850. Therefore, he would only be about 8 at the time of this will, not 21 or of an age to be an executor. Maybe, then, my John is a son of James or John sons of John?
Query: Is Thomas son of John Sr. d. 1822 the one who married Rachel Worthington?
Query: Could my John Mannen b. 1814 be a *son* of James or John Jr. or even Thomas?
Maybe, but their father John was married to Elizabeth Hughes. A Sidney S. Mannen was married (by the Rev. James Savage) to Eliza Walton on 10 Aug. 1837 in Bracken Co.￼ He is more than likely the son of John Mannen Sr. d. 1822 named Sidney. This Sidney is named as the son of John "Manning" and Elizabeth Hughes, a couple who were married in Pennsylvania and then traveled to Ohio. Sidney later (1844) moved to Jefferson Co., Illinois, where he died in 1872, and his 10 children had families. If this can be verified as the same Sidney, this gives much more information about the family of John Mannen d. 1822. But it also means that Sidney's mother was named Elizabeth, not Mary who died in 1870. Since Mary Cushman died in 1870, she long outlived her husband. The only way this would work is if John Mannen d. 1822 married again after the birth of Sidney, who seems to have been one of his youngest children. This is not a likely option.
A Boaz Mannen, who had a son named John, wrote his will in Oct. 1822. This family was in Floyd Co., Kentucky by 1810, and in Ohio by 1817.
There was a John Mannen (1785-1835) who m. 27 Feb. 1830 to Sally Tarrant (1811-1836). Query: Is this John Jr., son of John d. 1822?
The 1830 census in Kentucky lists a John Mannen and a James Mannen. I assume that these are the same two as in the 1820 census, sons of John Sr. d. 1822. A guess is that my John is a son of one of these. Both of these die soon after.
In 1832, a John Mannen is listed as having left an estate, with no will, in Mason Co.￼ In 1834, a James Mannen is listed as having left an estate, with no will, in Mason Co.￼
Query: If these two are the sons of John d. 1822, who are the James and John on the 1840 census, below? There are clearly two different James Mannens here, and at least three different John Mannens (John Sr., John who d. 1832, and John on the 1840 census, who is presumable John Jr., and mine).
On 27 Jan. 1834, Richard Kirk married Mary (Cushman) Mannen in Mason Co.￼ Her name, as Mary Kirk, is on my John Mannen's gravestone because her first husband was named Mannen.￼ Richard Kirk was her second husband; unfortunately, her first husband's first name is not given. But the John Mannen d. 1832 is a possibility. Mary was born in 1794, making her 40 when she married Richard as his second wife, and died in 1870. Note that John Mannen d. 1822 has no daughter named Mary.
On 15 Sept. 1838 Nancy Mannen married Benjamin F. Driskell in Mason Co.￼
In 1839, a Susan Mannen is listed as having left an estate in Mason Co., with no will.￼
The 1840 census lists again the man whom I assume is John Mannen Jr. (Northern Div., Mason Co, Kentucky, page 37); this is because a James Mannen (first name partly obscured, but it must be him) is again nearby, on page 39 (which is actually the next page on that 2-page census).
There is a John Mannen in Bracken County in the 1840 census.
In 1840, several Mannens—"Colonel Thomas Mannen," "Capt. T. Mannen," and "Gen. John Mannen" served as Electors for the Democratic party in that year's presidential campaign.￼ No doubt one of the "T" Mannens is the one who served in the war of 1812 as a major. I've seen unsourced reference to the fact this "Gen" John Mannen is the one who married Charity Critchfield in 1814, but I have nothing further here.
On 27 Feb. 1840 Elizabeth Mannen married William Soward in Mason Co.￼
On 27 Feb. 1840 Thomas Mannen m. Susan Anderson in Mason Co.￼
On 27 Apr. 1844, an Andrew I. Mannen married Sarah Shotwell in Bracken Co.; married by Thos. Grange.￼
On 21 Oct. 1847 Martha Mannen m. Edward Robertson in Mason Co.￼
On 5 Apr. 1848 David Mannen m. Comfort Ann Peppers in Mason Co.￼
Possible conclusion: It seems like what's going on here is that these are granchildren of John d. 1822, whose names exist in no other source before 1850 (that I know of) except these marriage records. It's likely that my John and Mary are among these grandchildren.
On the 1850 census my John Mannen b. 1814 m. Minerva Hamilton lists his birthplace, and the rest of his family's, as Kentucky. He is in district 3. (The 1860 census lists his and his whole family as being born in Virginia, but this is a mistake, a ditto mark carried on down the column from a family above.)
The 1850 census also records a David Mannen (aged 36), wife Ann (aged 23) and child Mary L (aged 1), all born in Kentucky. They are only two pages after John Mannen. This would probably be David and Ann (Peppers). Mary L. Mannen, b. 1850 is listed as their daughter. On 30 May 1871 in Mason Co. Mary L. married Alexander R. Victor from Harrison Co., Ky, born 1845,
The 1850 census records a Thomas Mannen (aged 51), wife Susan (aged 42), with four children from ages 9 to 2. This is Thomas m. Susan Anderson in 1840. He would be the correct age to be the son of John Sr. d. 1822.
The 1850 census for Mason Co. records a Martin M. Mannen, aged 26, married to Susan, aged 23, with children Mary E. (aged 2) and David A. (aged 1/12). Note that John and Minerva's daughter is also named Mary Elizabeth, born the same year.
In this census, John Mannen and Minerva Hamilton live 2 houses away form Joseph Frazee and Ann Cushman.
On 15 Oct. 1850 Francis Mannen m. Ann Fernoughly in Mason Co.￼
Several Mannens (Thomas H., John, and Enoch) served with the 40th Regiment of the Kentucky Volunteer Mounted Infantry in the US Army during the Civil War. Thomas H. Mannen is mentioned in War Reports (War of the Rebellion I.XX Part I: Reports, page 147); this is a report on Morgan's Raid.
A "John E. Mannen" was born in Cleveland, OH on 7 June 1862; he later managed the Mannen & Esterly Co.
In 1865, John Mannen appears on the tax lists for Mason Co.; income was $309. No other Mannens appear on the list.
In 1871, David Mannen served as a bondsman for Elizabeth B. Mannen, aged 19 from Mason Co., to be married to William H. Wilson from Lewis Co. They were married in Minerva, Mason Co. on 30 May 1871; he also served as a bondsman for Mary L. Mannen a day earlier, to be married in Minerva to Alexander Victor on the same day.
In 1875 William Mannen, aged 64, appears in the census for the Kansas territory (Stanton Twp., Miami Co.), aged 69 (born in abt. 1811). He is also the assessor of the census. He is married to Maria M. Mannen, also born in Kentucky, aged 54.
The Germantown Business directory for 1876-77 lists "Mannen J & L.H.: Leaf tobacco." This is my John Mannen and his son Leslie H. Mannen. I assume this means that they were farmers (not store owners).
According to the census mortality schedules for 1880 for the Fern Leaf district of Mason Co., John Mannen aged 65, farmer, died in August of typhoid fever. The note is by Dr. C.S. Savage. This gives a birth date of abt. 1815—my John.
In 1880, a David Mannen is living in Minerva, Mason Co.
Obituary on 21 Aug. 1882 says that Major Thomas H. Mannen has died (Evening Bulletin in Maysville); he served in the Federal army during the war. He was born in Mason Co.

"R.D. Pitard. The name of Pitard is one which has been known in business circles of New Orleans for upwards of half a century. Three generations of business men have carried on enterprises which have borne this name, and all three have established reputations for integrity and records for success gained honorably. A worthy representative of the family is found in RD Pitard, who is carrying on a flourishing general hardware and paint business.
"Mr Pitard was born at New Orleans, a son of Daniel and Barsilla (Bemiss) Pitard. His grandfather, Gustave Pitard, likewise a native of New Orleans, where the family has been represented for many years, spent his entire life here and from small beginnings built up a successful business in the line of hardware. He was primarily a business man and devoted his entire attention to the conduct of his establishment, so that he had little leisure for other matters, but is remembered as a good and public spirited man who did not fail in any of the duties of citizenship. He married Cecile Marpay [sic-Maupay], also a native of New Orleans and a lifelong resident of this city.
"Daniel M. Pitard, the father of RD, was born at New Orleans and secured his education in private schools. As a youth he chose merchandising as his life work, and received his introduction to business affairs as a clerk in his father's hardware establishment. When the elder man died he assumed control of the business, which he conducted for a long period, but of more recent years has occupied himself with assisting his son in the conduct of the latter's enterprise. Daniel M Pitard married Miss Barsilla Bemiss, also a native of New Orleans, who survives as a resident of this city.
"RD Pitard acquired his education in the parochial schools of New Orleans and the Jesuit College, and after his graduation from the latter institution began clerking in the store which had been established by his grandfather. There he learned the business in all its particulars, and in 1915 founded a business of his own, at No. 115 Chartres Street, with another entrance at No. 116 Exchange Place. Mr. Pitard carries a full line of shelf and heavy hardware, paints, oils, glass, etc., and is able to fill any order, large or small. He has established a reputation for fair and honorable dealings, and his natural courtesy and quick attention to the wants of his customers have combined to make a favorable impression and to gain him many friends and added custom. His establishment is modern in every respect, and he carries on his business in an energetic and progressive manner. Mr. Pitard is a member of the New Orleans Association of Commerce and has given his support to worthy civic movements, although his growing business has left him little time to engage in politics or public affairs.
"In 1909 Mr Pitard was united in marriage with Miss Alice Ford, who was born at New Orleans, a daughter of James and Alice (Swarbrick) Ford."
He appears as a WWI draftee living at 3914 Canal; he apparently failed the physical. He and his wife Alice had no children.

HENRY WORTHINGTON was born in Mason County, Ky., September 1, 1826, and is the youngest of a family of fourteen children born to Thomas T. and A. (Whipps) Worthington. Thomas T. Worthington was born in Baltimore County, Md., immigrated to Kentucky in 1796, and settled in Mason County. He was a prominent and successful farmer and stock raiser, and was a son of Samuel Worthington, who was born in England, and was a very wealthy gentleman. Mrs. A. Worthington was a native of England, and was a daughter of John Whipps. Henry Worthington left his native county in 1847, and went to Scioto County, Ohio, where he operated the Buena Vista free-stone quarries for about ten years, employing about 600 men. Subsequently he moved to Covington, Ky., where he engaged extensively in dealing in leaf tobacco, in which business he has since been successfully engaged. In 1876 he bought a two-thirds interest in the Licking Rolling Mills of Covington, Ky., of which his is president. In 1882-83 the Licking Rolling Mills Company built the Maumee Rolling Mills in Toledo, Ohio.
June 16, 1853, he was united in marriage to Miss Maria Slack, daughter of Col. Jacob A. Slack. Six children blessed this union, four of whom are living: Henry S., Lillie Stewart, Mattie and Annie Hamilton. Mrs. Worthington died in 1867, a strict member of the Presbyterian CHurch, of which church Mr. Worthington is also a member. Politically he was an old line Whig, but now belongs to the protective wing of the Democratic party."
Here is another history of him, from the History of Cincinnati and Hamilton County:
HENRY WORTHINGTON was born in Mason county, Ky., September 1, 1826, son of Thomas T, and Arah (Whipps) Worthington, natives of Baltimore county. Md., who settled at Limestone, now Maysville, Ky., about 179. His grandfather, Samuel Worthington, was an English federalist who came to Maryland with one of the Lords Baltimore: he had twenty four children, and has numerous descendants in Mason, Bracken and Mercer counties, Ky. Thomas T. Worthington's family numbered sixteen children, all of whom reached maturity, and three are now living; Madison, a farmer in Mason county, Kr.: 'Martha, wife of William T. Craig, of Sioux City, Iowa, and henry. The last named received his education at a log schoolhouse on his father's farm, His first business venture was the development of an extensive stone quarry in Scioto county, Ohio, with the product of which he freighted steamboats and barges, and supplied materials for bridge abutments, buildings, etc., not only at Cincinnati, but also at Pittsburgh, Louisville, St. Louis. Natchez, etc. This industry gave employment to 500 men dewing summer. During the panic of 1857, owing to the difficulty of making collections, Mr. Worthington sold out the business at a loss of $18,000, although he met all his obligations in full. In 1860 he came to Cincinnati and embarked in the business of handling leaf tobacco, in which he still continues, and is also largely interested in the tobacco business as a producer, his farm of 2,000 acres, probably the largest in Hamilton county, being partly devoted to tobacco culture; he also has interests of a similar nature in Kentucky. Mr. Worthington owns a one-third interest in the Maumee Rolling Mills, Toledo, Ohio; he has invested largely in the electric light plants of Newport and Covington, Ky. ; Circleville, Ohio, and other places; in a blast furnace at Tonawanda, N. Y., in a foundry at Indianapolis. Ind., and in real estate at Toledo, Covington and elsewhere. Since 1853 he has resided at Covington.
Mr. Worthington married Maria, daughter of Col. Jacob A. Slack, of Mason county, Ky., who died May 30, 1861, leaving four children: Elizabeth, Henry S., Anna and Mattie. Henry S. originated the Chesapeake & Ohio bridge at Cincinnati, secured the charter for it, and, having successfully launched the enterprise, disposed of it at a large profit. He has traveled in Mexico, Europe, etc., and now resides in New York, where he takes high rank among the literati of that city. Elizabeth married Archibald Stuart, proprietor of a newspaper at Toledo, Ohio, and a member of the Thomson-Houston Electrical Company. Anna is the wife of George G. Hamilton, one of the largest tobacco producers of Kentucky. Mr. Worthington was a Whig in ante-bellum days, but is now a Democrat. His religious connection is with the Presbyterian Church."
NOTE the error here: compared to the first biography, in fact "Elizabeth, Henry S., Anna, and Mattie" are not Jacob Slack's children, but Henry and Maria's.

FRED FRICKE. Of the men of Fayette County who have contributed to the material growth and development of this part of Texas, few are more widely or favorably known than Fred Fricke, of Round Top. During his long and active career his experiences have included operations as a merchant, traveling salesman, stock dealer and banker, and at the present time he is president of the State Bank of Round Top and one of the most influential and progressive men of the village.
Mr. Fricke was born in Washington County, Texas, June 28, 1856, and is a son of the pioneer founder of this German family, George H. Fricke. The father was born in the city of Hanover, province of Hanover, Germany, September 19, 1821, a son of Louise (Rehren) Fricke. The grandfather was an official in the service of the government. Among the children of the grandparents' family were: several daughters who remained in Europe; August, who remained in Hanover and served his government; George H., the father of Fred; and Dr. Fred, who came to the United States and located first at St. Louis, Missouri, but later went to Pine Bluff, Arkansas, where he died in 1873 unmarried. A son of August Fricke, Fred Fricke, is a well-to-do druggist of Nebraska, and another son, Ernst, came to the United States, married in New Orleans, was a civil engineer and machinist, and died in Cuba while on a mission in connection with his profession.
George H. Fricke sailed from Bremen, Germany, in 1846, and after his arrival at Galveston, removed to Washington County, Texas. He was not there long before he entered the service of the United States as a soldier for duty during the Mexican war, but after six months of military life became ill and was recuperated in a Houston hospital, then receiving his honorable discharge. Upon his recovery he returned to Europe and married Miss Rehren, with whom he soon returned to his first permanent place of settlement in Washington County, Texas.
George H. Fricke was a well-educated man, and when he first began civic life in Texas it was as a teacher and farmer. He followed his educational career during almost all of his life, finishing his work in Fayette County, whence he had moved in 1864. He was several times justice of the peace in Washington County, and was busy with the duties of that office and his educational labors when the Civil war broke out. Mr. Fricke had early taken out his citizenship papers, and as he was a friend of the Union he espoused the cause of the republican party. He had come to Texas during the formative state of the commonwealth and at a time when many of her heroes of independence were still living, among whom he formed a wide acquaintance. He knew personally the great leader, Gen. Sam Houston, and it is probable that his warmth of feeling for the Union was inspired by the attitude of the general. Mr. Fricke was a man able of expressing himself on public occasions, and during gatherings in his community of any nature he was invariably called upon to preside or to speak. He was confirmed in the Lutheran Church, but never was connected with a fraternal order. His death occurred in October, 1893, Mrs. Fricke having preceded him to the grave, March 12, 1880. Their children were as follows : George, who is engaged in farming in the vicinity of Round Top; Paul, who resides at Brenham, Texas; Dora, who married first Otto Grumbka and second Charles Schreiber and died at Rutersville, Texas; Mary, who died in Austin County, Texas, as Mrs. Theo. Buehrina; Susan, who became the wife of Julius Holckamp and died in Kendall County, Texas; Fred, of this review; Regina, who, died as Mrs. Charles Huth; at Austin; Ida, who married Albert Real and lives near Kerrville, Texas; and Clara, who married Albert Giebel and resides on a farm near Industry.
Fred Fricke was a lad of eight years when he accompanied his parents to Fayette County, and his education was secured under the preceptorship of his father, with additional schooling at LaGrange. He had a teaching experience of one year in a country school before he entered business life, and in 1873 went to Brenham and became a merchant's clerk. Three years later he engaged in mercantile pursuits on his own account there, conducting a store until 1878, when he went on the road as a traveling salesman, a vocation in which he followed the "trail" until January 1, 1897. Mr. Fricke started on the road for W. D. Cleveland, of Houston, was later with Ullmenn, Lewis & Company, and subsequently spent thirteen years with Foche, Wilkins & Lang, covering Texas territory throughout this long period, and becoming widely and favorably known throughout the state. When he left the road Mr. Fricke turned his attention to the stock business and farming in Fayette County, and became rather extensively identified with these lines, which he followed until 1908. He introduced a good blood of cattle into the country, occasionally shipped his stock, and as a farm improver added homes to the farm for tenants and gave an impetus to an already wakeful spirit there. On December 19, 1912, Mr. Fricke became identified with financial matters when he became the founder of the State Bank of Round Top, an institution with a capital of $10,000, of which he has since been president and his son, George H. Fricke, cashier. In the direction of this enterprise Mr. Fricke has displayed the possession of marked business and financial ability, a natural courtesy and broad-mindedness, a knowledge of affairs and human nature gained in his long years of travel and experience, and good business and financial judgment, which, combined with his high reputation for stability and substantiality, have gained the confidence of the depositors of the .bank, as well as a high standing for the institution in financial circles. Mr. Fricke has not entered actively into political life, but has cast his presidential vote always with the republican party.
On February 20, 1880, Mr. Frieke was married to Miss Louisa Weyand, a daughter of George Weyand, a merchant of this community, a large real estate dealer, and a sterling citizen. Mr. Weyand married Christina Becker, and their living children are: Mrs. E. Nagel, Mrs. Alex von Rosenberg, Mrs. Louisa Fricke and Mrs. Lena Kaiser.
The children born to Mr. and Mrs. Fricke are as follows: Paul, a business man of El Campo, Texas, who married Adelia Hahn; Arthur, a business man of Carmine, Texas, who married Irene Vogelsang and has a daughter, Eveline; Fred, Jr., a stockman of this locality, who married Eugenie Vogelsang and has a son, Clinton; George H., who is cashier of the State Bank of Round Top, and married Louisa von Rosenberg, has two children, Helmer and Vernon; Lydia, the wife of Walter von Rosenberg, of Malone, Texas, a merchant, who has two daughters, Loraine and Loretta; Edgar, a student in the Blinn College, Brenham; and Estella, who is attending the public schools.

ERNEST FRICKE, of Round Top, is a typical Texan, born in Fayette County, September 19, 1875, prominent in business as a young man, and of more recent years a leading merchant and in the forefront of movements beneficial to the material and moral uplifting of the community. As far as his education is concerned he is also a product of the Lone Star State. Starting his business in a modest way, relying upon the local patronage for its support, by untiring energy and remarkable initiative he has built up a large and prosperous enterprise, which attracts its trade from all over the county.
Mr. Fricke is a member of a pioneer family of Texas, and a grandson of the founder thereof, George H. Fricke, who was born in Hanover, Germany, September 19, 1821. In 1846 George H. Fricke sailed from the city of Bremen, Germany, to Galveston, Texas, and subsequently removed to Washington County, where he soon enlisted for service during the Mexican war under the flag of the United States. He was soon taken ill and sent to a hospital at Houston, and after his honorable discharge and recovery returned to his native land where he was married to Miss Behren. Again coming to this country, he settled on his first property, and being a man 'of excellent education took up the vocations of teaching and farming. In 1864 he removed to Fayette County, where he continued his educational labors for many years and died in 1893. He had come to Texas during a time when many of its heroes of the Revolution were still living and among whom he formed a wide acquaintance, one of these being Gen. Sam Houston, whose opinions as to the Civil war Mr. Fricke shared. He was a republican in his political views, was an able and fluent speaker, and frequently was called upon to preside at meetings of various kinds in his community. His religious faith was that of the Lutheran Church, in which he was confirmed. Mrs. Fricke died March 12, 1880, having been the mother of the following children: George, the father of Ernest of this review; Paul, who resides at Brenham, Texas; Dora, who married first Otto Grumbka and second Charles Schreiber and died at Rutersville, Texas; Mary, who died in Austin County, Texas, as Mrs. Theo. Buehrina; Susan, who became the wife of Julius Holckamp and died in Kendall County, Texas; Fred, who is president of the First State Bank of Round Top and a well-known business man; Regina, who died as Mrs. Charles Huth, at Austin; and Ida, who became the wife of Albert Real and lives near [Kerrville], Texas.
George Fricke, son of the pioneer and father of Ernest Fricke, was born July 3, 1849, in Washington County, Texas, and has spent his life about Round Top since 1864. He married Matilda Henkel, a daughter of Edward Henkel, who was justice of the peace for the Round Top locality for years and a native of Hessen-Castle, Germany, coming to the United States in 1848 and settling in Fayette County. He was an early merchant at Round Top, and after the war between the North and South devoted his life chiefly to public affairs. He erected some of the first structures at Round Top, was active in democratic politics, served his community ably as public official and private citizen, and died in 1894, one of the best known men of his locality. Mr. Henkel married Miss Louisa Schoenwerk for his first wife, and after her death was united with her sister, Matilda Schoenwerk. Of the Henkel children there were: Charley, who died unmarried; Mrs. Matilda Fricke; George, who resides at Dallas, Texas; and Albert, who died without issue. George Fricke has passed his life in agricultural pursuits, and his home is now near Round Top. He has had the following children: Ernest, of this review; Edward, a successful merchant at Woodsboro, Texas; Miss Louisa, who is engaged in teaching in Caldwell County, Texas; Albert, who is engaged in teaching in Refugio County; and Annita, the youngest, who is a schoolgirl.
Ernest Fricke received his educational training in the public schools of Round Top, under the preceptorship of the present county clerk of Fayette County, P. Klatt, who was then in charge of the schools here. He left his school books before he was eighteen years of age to begin to work on the'home farm, in addition to which he became skilled in handling live stock, in which he was engaged for a period of about two years. Just before he became twenty-one years of age he secured his first business experience as a clerk in the mercantile line for Alex von Rosenberg, of Round Top, at the same time being employed in the post-office here. In 1897 he was appointed postmaster under the McKinley administration, and this office he has continued to retain to the present time, having passed the civil service examination for the office, in 1914 and being reappointed as a result of that examination. Mr. Fricke went into business on his own account, August 1, 1898, with a grocery stock valued at $400. He was aided financially by an uncle for some years until he reached a point where he could go on alone, and for four years was a partner with Arthur Fricke, as Fricke & Fricke, but finally bought his partner's interest and since that time the establishment has been conducted under the business style of Ernest Fricke. In addition to being a general merchant, Mr. Fricke is engaged in buying cotton, poultry and country produce, .in which he also deals. He has always warmly accorded to Round Top the same stanch support which its people have given him as an honorable and successful merchant and eminently useful citizen. Mr. Fricke has always practiced temperance. It has always been his endeavor to bring to Round Top the best trade, whether it patronizes his establishment or not, and for this reason may be placed in the booster class. He is vice president and a member of the official board of the First State Bank of Round Top, of which he was one of the organizers in 1912. A stalwart republican in his political views, Mr. Fricke was a member of the state republican convention held at San Antonio in 1900, and has served Round Top as its mayor four years. His administration was made notable by a businesslike handling of the town's affairs and the innovation of a number of needed civic reforms. Fraternally, he is also well known, being consul commander of the Woodmen of the World and treasurer of the Sons of Hermann, which latter lodge he has represented in the Grand Lodge of Texas.
On November 1, 1899, Mr. Fricke was. married at Round Top to Miss Elizabeth Ginzel, a daughter of William Ginzel, an interesting figure of the locality and a business man of importance. Two children have been born to this union, namely: Mignon M. and Elmo Arthur. -- pp. 1570 -1572.

|322||A biography, from http://www.rootsweb.com/~txfayett/biographies_k-m.htm#meyer:|
CHARLES JOHN HENRY MEYER. One of the strongest business factors in the life of the little village of Ellinger in Fayette County has been Charles J. H. Meyer, a man of many sided activities, the owner of a splendid country property in addition to interests in the town, and a citizen who at different times has responded to the request of his fellows for service in local offices and in the legislature.
He belongs to the pioneer German element in Fayette County, and was born in this county November 5, 1854. The family was planted in Texas by his grandfather, Henry Meyer, who in 1844 brought his family from Hanover, Germany, and landed from a sailing vessel at Galveston. From that point they secured ox teams to carry the people and their possessions to Fayette County. Grandfather Meyer located two miles north of Ellinger, started to develop a home, and the acreage which he owned and partly put into cultivation descended to his son and to his grandson, Charles J. H. Grandfather Meyer was sawing lumber by hand with which to cover cracks in his log cabin when bit by a snake, and was found dead. He lies in the Lutheran Cemetery between Ellinger and Fayetteville, and his wife, who lived to be seventy-nine years of age, lies beside him. When the Meyer family came into Texas the country was absolutely new, and there were Indians who occasionally called at the old cabin and once took the scalp of a relative of the family, an uncle of Charles J. H. Meyer. Henry Meyer's children were: Dora, who married Charles Hillman and died in Fayette County, leaving children; Annie, who married John Heinshon [Heinsohn], and also left children; Mary, who left a daughter by her marriage to Albert Alerbush [Ellerbusch]; John H.; Frederick, who spent his life in Fayette County; and Richard, who went to California just before the Civil war and nothing is known of his subsequent fate.
John H. Meyer, father of the Ellinger business man, was born in Hanover and was fourteen years of age when he came to this country. He had only a country school education, hut was very apt as a business man, acquired business forms as he needed them, was expert in the handling of stock and crop productions. During a portion of the war he was overseer of a factory at LaGrange making hats for the Confederate soldiers, but subsequently was employed as a teamster carrying cotton and general merchandise in and out of Brownsville. Following the war came his settled activities as a farmer, and he raised crops over the site of the present town of Ellinger. He sold ninety acres to the railroad company for townsite purposes, and the depot was built not far from his house. He took an advanced stand in the breeding of blooded horses, and raised some of the best specimens of those animals in Fayette County. He was also widely known as a cattle drover. His market was at Houston, though it was his usual custom to sell his cattle off his ranch directly to the northern buyers. At his death he possessed 1,260 acres in the Colorado bottom, and it was one of the finest estates along that river. From the time Ellinger was founded he took a very active interest in its growth and development, and lived in the village until his death. He was always a democrat in politics, took much interest in the principles of the party, and was very strong in espousing the cause of his friends when they were candidates. Although not an orator he occasionally made talks on political and other subjects. Very seldom was he in court on business of his own and when such occasions did arise he defended his own cases. He had no fraternal affiliations, but this was due to the opposition of his wife to such orders. He was brought up in the faith of the Lutheran Church and gave liberally to the support of church and charitable causes in his community. John H. Meyer died March 20, 1893; he had been married nearly forty years. His wife was Miss Dora Alerbush [Ellerbusch], whose father, Albert Alerbush, came from Hanover, Germany, and settled in the Ellinger locality. Mrs. Meyer died in February, 1911. Her children were: Charles J. H.; Nancy, who married Jacob Koehl and died near Ellinger leaving children; Charles F., a farmer near Ellinger; John, who died just at his majority; D. Fritz, a ginner at Ellinger; Dora, wife of Charles Von Rosenberg of LaGrange; Annie, wife of F. W. Girndt of Ellinger; and Otta A., of Houston.
Charles H. J. Meyer grew up in the locality where he was born and still has a picture of the cabin which was his birthplace. This cabin contained a single room, and like most of the early homes had a dirt floor. It is still standing, being now used as a crib, and is owned by a Bohemian settler. As part of his education Mr. Meyer spent three years in the Texas Military Institute at Austin. He returned home in Jurie, 1874, was married in St. Paul, and started to provide for his home by strenuous labor. He was paid $6 an acre for breaking prairie and also used his ox team in hauling logs. He subsequently engaged in the stock business near Rosenberg in Colorado and Fort Bend counties, and spent about six years in that vicinity with considerable profit. In 1881 he bought the Charles Gisber saloon, after the proprietor had been run out by the wild element inhabiting the river country around Ellinger. He took possession at once, and there has never been an occasion when he has not been master of every situation. Though for a period of thirty-five years he has owned a saloon, he has let the other fellows do the drinking. He tended his own bar until the gradual increase of his stock and other interests made it necessary for him to spend most of his time outside. His chief business is as a stock farmer. He has fed many hundreds of cattle, driving them to the Houston market as his father had done, and now for more than thirty-five years has been well known in Fayette County as a feeder and shipper. He owns about 400 acres around Ellinger, and 226 acres adjoin the town. This land is used primarily for the feeding of his cattle. As a farmer he operates chiefly on leased land, and gives employment to about 27 white families, comprising nearly 200 people. Some of his renters have been with him more than twenty years, and include people who have married and become grandparents while living on his land.
When Mr. Meyer was a young man he signed a subscription for $100 toward the building of the railroad through Ellinger, and paid the obligation through his own labors. He has thus been identified with the town since the beginning, has dealt somewhat extensively in farm property and his is the best residence of the community. He is a director of the First State Bank of Ellinger. While formerly actively identified with politics he is now inclined to step aside in favor of younger men. In 1890 Precinct No. 1 elected him a county commissioner, and 'after two years in that office he was elected to the legislature and served one term. While in the House of Representatives he was a member of the committee on farming, stock raising and irrigation and several others. Much of his time he spent in watching the movements of other members and in exercising his vote against uncertain bills. He helped to make hog stealing a penitentiary offense, but had no pet measures of his own to advocate. On one occasion an attempt was made in the House to instruct Senator Mills as to his duty on a certain matter, but Mr. Meyer strongly resisted this resolution, since he believed that Roger Q. Mills was much superior to any man in the Texas Legislature and knew full well how to act and vote in the National Congress.
On October 27, 1874, Mr. Meyer married Miss Elizabeth Ellinger, daughter of Charles Ellinger. Their children are: Elo C., who is associated with his father in business, and by his marriage to Lizzie Konni has two children, Ivy and Leslie; Adelia married Frank Fritch of LaGrange, and their children are Henry and Lucile; Lizzie married Joe Fritch of Ellinger, and they have twins, Leroy and Littleton; Lillie Bell; Henry J., a physician at Hondo, Texas, a graduate of Tulane University, and by his marriage to Cassie Holloway has two children, John H. and Walter; Hattie is the wife of Walter Sarcin of Taylor, Texas, and has a daughter Ruby Bell; Leera is the youngest of the family.
Mr. Meyer is affiliated with the lodge of Independent Order of Odd Fellows at LaGrange, and also with the Knights of Honor and with the Sons of Hermann. Occasionally he takes a health recruiting trip, often visits the Dallas Fair, the Fort Worth stock shows, and is occasionally a member of a political convention. He is a man of large body, of genial nature, has hosts of friends in Fayette County, and in every relation of life has proved himself trustworthy and efficient. -- pp. 1878 -1880.

ARTHUR FRICKE, who is successfully engaged in the general merchandise business, as a cotton buyer and produce man at Carmine, is a worthy representative of the younger business element of Fayette County. To a very considerable extent it is this element in any locality, and particularly in those outside of the large cities, which infuses energy and progress into the activities of the place. The enthusiasm of this element, whose entrance upon the arena of business life dates back not much further than a decade, which contributes the spirit and zeal which keep commercial and industrial activities in a healthy condition. A pronounced type of this class of energetic workers is Mr. Fricke.
Arthur Fricke was born on his father's farm in Fayette County, near Round Top, April 1, 1884, and is a son of Fred Fricke, a sketch of whose career will be found on another page of this work. Arthur Fricke passed his boyhood and youth in the country, where his early education came from the country school, this being supplemented by a course in the commercial college at Brenham. Mr. Fricke's career was commenced in the field of education as a teacher in the district schools in Washington County and continued to be thus engaged for a period of three years, during which time he gained an excellent reputation as a capable and popular teacher. He then entered merchandise at Round Top in 1904 in partnership with Ernest Fricke, a cousin, the firm style being Fricke & Fricke. This existed until 1910, when the partnership was dissolved with the withdrawal of Arthur Fricke, who engaged next in the cotton business as a buyer for the exporting firm of the A. D. Milroy Company of Brenham and Galveston. After two years of experience secured in this line he again turned to mercantile pursuits, and in 1913 came to Carmine and bought the stock and good will of F. Eichler. Since that time the business has been conducted under the style of Arthur Fricke, general merchandise, cotton buyer and produce man. Under his capable and energetic management the business has grown and developed into one of the paying enterprises of the village and one which attracts its trade from the best class of people. The straightforwardness of his dealings is fully recognized by his fellow townsmen, and although his advent in Carmine is of but comparatively recent date, the patronage which he has already enjoyed presages a very successful future.
Mr. Fricke was married in Fayette County, Texas, October 11, 1908, to Miss Irene Vogelsang, a daughter of Paul and Emma (Kraus) Vogelsang. Mr. Vogelsang is a representative of an old and honored German family of Austin County and was born near Shelby, his father having been the founder of the family in the Lone Star state. Mrs. Fricke is the third in order of birth in a family of five children, and she and Mr. Fricke are the parents of one daughter, Evelyn, four years old. Mr. Fricke is a member of the Woodmen of the World. He owns the property where he does business, as well as his own home, one of the choice residences of Carmine. -- pp. 1580 -1581.

RECTOR BARTON, farmer and dealer in stock and tobacco, Glasgow. About eighteen years of Mr. BARTON's early life were devoted to mercantile pursuits. But in 1869 he located on farm where he now lives, and where he has charge of a place of 1,100 acres devoted to grain and stock raising. He was born in Linn county, Missouri, March 20, 1837. His father, Wharton R. BARTON, is an Ohioan by birth, having been born in that state in March, 1809. When he (the father) was a small boy his parents moved to Illinois, thence to St. Louis, and in that city he grew to manhood. In St. Louis he had the advantages offered by the schools of the city. Subsequently he came to this county, and in 1835 moved to Linn county, where he soon became one of the leading farmers and citizens of the county, as he was one of its first settlers. He was for a number of years sheriff, and, afterwards circuit clerk, and held various other positions of public trust.
Wharton R. BARTON has been twice married; first to Miss Jane, daughter of Edward WARREN, one of the early settlers of Howard county. She died in Linn county in November, 1849, leaving six children. His second wife was formerly Mrs. Elizabeth LOCKRIDGE of this county. Her family name, before her first marriage, was ROOKER. Mr. And Mrs. BARTON have six children living.
Rector BARTON, the subject of this sketch, was born of his father's first marriage, and when his mother died in 1849, he was but twelve years of age. In his boyhood days, however, he had attended school regularly, and, being of studious, industrious habits, acquired the elements of an education, so that he was qualified to begin as clerk in the mercantile business.
Accordingly, he came to Glasgow and obtained a position in a dry goods house, and continued clerking, with but one year's interval, until 1862, a period of thirteen years. The following year, then being twenty-six years of age, he began business on his own account, establishing a dry goods store in Roanoke, in which, however, he continued but one year. In 1864 he went to New York, and in 1865 engaged in the tobacco and dry goods business in Mason County, Kentucky, but in the fall of the same year returned to Roanoke, this county, and resumed the dry goods business there, in which he continued four years, and until 1869, when he located on the farm where he now lives.
On the 20th of May, 1860, he was married to Miss Sallie C. SAVAGE, who was born in Mason county, Kentucky, January 21, 1838. They have three children, Oswald S., Maggie M. and Jennie W. Mr. And Mrs. B. are members of the M. E. church south, and he is a member of Livingstone lodge No. 51, A. F. and A. M., and also the A.O.U.W.

|327||A brief biography of her can be found in Maryland's Way: the Hammond-Harwood House Cookbook, on page 282. In 1873, as "Mrs. Benjamin Chew Howard," she published a cookbook entitled Fifty Years in a Maryland Kitchen.|
According to Maryland's Way, "Mrs. Howard was born in 1801, and died in the 90th year of her age. She was married in 1818 to Gen. Benjamin Chew Howard when she was but 17 years of age, and began to raise a family which numbered twelve children. In 1827 her husband inherited "Belvidere" from his father, John Eager Howard, and his accomplished wife became its hostess. Until 1842, when "Belvidere" was sold, Mrs. Howard received within its hospitable walls many of the leading public figures of teh country and fully maintained the high reputation which "Belvidere" had enjoyed for so long as one of the ‘foremost seats of elegant hospitality' in the country.
"Mrs. Howard undertook the effort of compiling her book and was persuaded to acknowlege it authorship ‘soley for the purpose of aiding certain benevolent undertakings.' During her long life she was actively engaged in charitable work, and in 1865 was made president of the Great Southern Relief Association which held a fair in Baltimore city at which nearly $200,000 was raised for the benefit of those who lost their all in the Civil War. She was identified with almost every charitable enterprise which the ladies of Baltimore undertook, and her life was one long career of good works.
"A friend wrote of her--'She possessed great earnestness of purpose, a strong and resolute mind, and unfailing energy. Her character was adorned with womanly tenderness, unaffected and simple courtesy, rare charm and uncommon beauty. She was a delightful conversationalist.'
"It is not to be wondered that Mrs. Howard was a universally beloved figure in her place and time, Baltimore of the 19th century, or that her warm and competent image ramins bright in the twentieth."

Most documents say Pennsylvania or Philadelphia, which given her last name seems more likely. Her maiden name appears on the death certificates for her children Frances Somerset and Caroline Blitz. I would guess from her last name, and from the fact that she's from Philadelphia in the late eighteenth century, that her ancestry is Scots-Irish, as an immense number of Scots-Irish arrived in the city, most notably in the early 1770s. This is just a guess, however; I have found nothing of her parents. There is an Ann Campbell who was born or baptized on 20 Nov. 1795 in Philadelphia at the Second Presbyterian Church; her parents were Nicholas and Ann Campbell. There are many Campbells in Philadelphia, however. |
Here is a possible hint about her family from a history of gardening in Germantown:
“After the death of Bernard McMahon in 1816, the nursery was conducted by his widow, and before leaving Rising Sun, the last foreman with Samuel Maupay was Frederick Knapp, who came to Philadelphia from Germany. Associated with Knapp while at Maupay's was Joseph Campbell, who after opened a floral establishment upon Germantown Road in the near neighborhood.”

|369||A Joseph Fernandez, b. at. 1802, appears on a New Orleans immigration lists in 1820 traveling from Pensacola to New Orleans on the ship "Theresa." |
There are two people named "Joseph Fernandez" in the 1820 census. Both have white males older than him, so I assume that he's not in the 1820 census as being probably too young to be an HOH. He also might be one of these immigrants.
A "Jose Fernandez" b. abt. 1804, aged 22, appears on New Orleans immigration lists in 1825 entering New Orleans. The same name appears again in 1831.
In 1830 two Joseph Fernandezes appear in the census: Joseph Fernandez in the northern suburbs, and Joseph Min Fernandez in the Lower Suburbs. Joseph Min has no adult males (it's a female HOH), so this can't be him. Joseph in the Northern Suburbs has no white females under 5 (which would be Lorenza's age), but two white females 5-9, and the only white male is 40-49 (too old for him), so I don't see how this can be him either.
According to the book Old New Orleans, a History of the Vieux Carre, Its Ancient and Historical Buildings by Stanley Arthur, Joseph Marie Fernandez was a contractor who built a couple of buildings in the Old Quarter in 1832 and 1834.
In the 1832 City Directory there are these two entries:
Fernandez, Joseph . . . cabinet maker . . . 84 St. Anne
Fernandez, J. . . . . . . Bayou c. Marais
In 1828 his name appears in the Notarial Archives document in the index to work by Feliz DeArmas, Notary Public.
In 1833 his name appears in the Notarial Archives document in the index to work by Feliz DeArmas, Notary Public.
In 1840 three J Fernandezes appear in the US census for New Orleans. "J.M. Fernandez" in the 1840 census for New Orleans is probably him. There are two males (aged 10 to 14, and aged 30 to 39) and two females (also aged 10 to 14, and 30 to 39) in the household. This is likely to be him, though I don't know who the male 10-14 would be. The other two can't be him: one, in Ward 1, has 1 male from 60-69 and 11 slaves; "J Fernandez" in Ward 2 has two men, one in 40s and one in 50s.
He appears several times in the Parish Court Index for New Orleans. He is the plaintiff in a suit against creditors (7960). "Fernandez, Joseph Marie and alia" are defendants in a suit by "Plicque & Le Bean" (7676); and he is the defendant in a suite by "Cajus, J.B.; testy. Executor & al." (7578). He is also the defendant in a suit by this wife:

A Nathaniel Savage served as a Lieutenant of cavalry the Virginia LIne during the revolution, and was on Feb. 8th, 1783 awarded Land Warrant No. 0118 (2, 666 and 2/3 acres) on Shawnee Creek in Ballard County, Kentucky. I'm not at all sure that this is the same person.

Thank you for your card of 13 Sept in which you say that you never heard of Vera. She as you know now, was sister of Friench (Dr.), Stephen Harbert, & James Hendley Simpson.
My mother told me that she married a man named "Watts" who was from San Antonion. Mother said that Watts wa a man who did not and never amounted to much, & that she was afraid that Vera had a sad life. Watts was a _______. [his profession--word ends in "ber"?]
About 15 years ago I was working in my office looking up a point of law, and I am across a case--by the San Antonio Court of Appeals--dated about 1935 to 1940. The case was between Vera and her brothers. It seems that earlier on they had advances Vera some money, and had taken a deed to her interest in the Simpson Rance (some 700 acres in Fayette County belong orginally to g grandmother Emily Dye Simpson). Later on gas an/or oil was discoveredand the land became much more valuable. Vera & her children filed the case contending the advance of money was a loan - and that the deed was in truth a mortgage. Vera wanted to repay the money advanced and leave to deed cancelled. Her brothers said thte deed was a deed, and the money advanced as not a loan, but payment for her interest in the land. She lost the case in the District Court and also in the Court of Appeals.
I am sure she is dead - but I have not gone forward with find out about Uncle Friench's folks - except for what you have.
Let us hear from you,

|399||A note in Calvary Episcopal Church records says “removed to Texas Miriam Maupay Girard Ave.” Event date given is “1884-1901.” |
She appears in city directories in Houston in 1887-1890, and in Galveston in 1893. She is living in each case with “A.R. Carter”: this would be Alfred Ross Carter (I14147), the husband of her niece Ella Amanda Maupay (I14133), the daughter of her uncle William Augustus). In 1893 William A. Maupay is also living with A.R. Carter; this could be William Augustus Sr. or Jr.—probably Jr., I’d expect.
In 1891 only William A. appears with A.R. Carter in the directory in Galveston, not Miriam.
She appears again in Philadelphia in the 1900 census.
Her February 1919 death might have been a result of the influenza outbreak that was especially severe in Philadelphia over that winter.

|408||A Pierre Pitard married Périnne Drouadanne (daughter of Jean) on 25 Jul 1758 in Corps-Nuds. I connect that marriage to this Pierre: though the marriage record is not clear on Pierre’s parents, it’s a logical conclusion. Here is the logic:|
1) no parents are named on the marriage record; presumably this is because both were deceased on 1758, and that fits this Pierre.
2) He’s a minor, which required a judge’s approval since his parents were deceased. He was 23 at the time, but the age of consent had to be 25.
3) Guillaume François Pitard, his half-brother (son of Bon’s first wife) was a witness to the marriage.
4) There aren’t that many Pierre Pitards to choose from in Corps-Nuds, and the marriage record says that the husband and wife are both from Corps-Nuds.

|420||A section on him, taken from the biography of his father:|
"Cooper, Asahel Walker, the lawyer, is a son of Asahel Walker Cooper, who was born in Lancaster County, Pa., Sept. 5, 1806, and died in New Orleans, May 22, 1883, and who was a son of a Quaker [ . . . ] Asahel Walker Cooper, who was born in New Orleans, Nov. 26, 1874, educated at Jesuit College, then took a preparatory course at Andover, Mass., and graduated from Yale College with the degree of A. B. in 1897, and in 1898 obtained his degree of LL. B. from Tulane University. He read law with the late Judge A. G. Brice and was associated with him in the practice of law until the death of Judge Brice. He now holds rank among the lawyers of New Orleans. He comes of an excellent family of New Orleans. His father was a prominent citizen of this city for many years, and numbered among that class of citizens who constituted what was known as the American colony in New Orleans. The elder Mr. Cooper was reared a Quaker, but in New Orleans was identified with the Presbyterian church. The present Asahel W. Cooper adheres to the church faith of his mother--the Roman Catholic."
Here is a second biography, taken from John Kendall Smith, History of New Orleans vol. 2 (Chicago: Lewis, 1922): 823-24:
"ASAHEL WALKER COOPER is a lawyer whose name has been associated with increasing distinction and service in his profession at New Orleans for over two decades. He is a native of the city and the Cooper family has lived in New Orleans for ninety years,
"His father, Asahel Walker Cooper, belonged to what was known as the American Colony of New Orleans. He was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, September 5, 1806, was the son of a Quaker and was reared in that faith, though in New Orleans he was identified with the Presbyterian Church. He acquired a common school education in Pennsylvania, learned the carpenter's trade as a bound apprentice at Philadelphia, and in 1830 came to New Orleans by sailing vessel. In a few years his skilled work proved the basis of an expanding business as a contractor and architect, and for many years he was one of the prosperous business men of New Orleans. He erected a large number of substantial structures in the business and residence sections of the city prior to and after the war, and continued in business until 1870. Prior to the war he acquired the Cooper Cotton Press, a noted piece of property which remained in the family possession until 1912, when it was sold to the Texas & Pacific.
"The first wife of the senior Mr. Cooper was Ann Sullivan, who died in 1870, the mother of two daughters, Sarah Jane, who married Alden McLellan, Sr., and Margaret Ann, who married Thomas G.P. Tureman. In 1872 he married Eliza A. Loney, of French and Irish parentage and a native of Ontario, Canada. She died in 1910, her only child being the New Orleans lawyer.
"Asahel Walker Cooper was born in New Orleans November 26, 1874, was reared a Catholic, the faith of his mother, was educated in the Jesuit College, and was then sent to New England and after attending preparatory school at Andover, Massachusetts, entered Yale University, where he was graduated with the A.B. degree in 1897. Mr. Cooper then returned to New Orleans, read law with the late Judge A.G. Brice, and received the LL. B. degree from Tulane University in 1898. Mr. Cooper was actively associated with Judge Brice until the latter's death and has always enjoyed a prosperous share in the work of his profession."

In the death record for his nephew Augustin Pitard (died at 15 mos.) in Port-au-Prince in 1803, he is described as "Hugue Auguste Avril, agé de vingt cinq and, marchande orfeve et oncle maternal de l'enfant"; Hugue Auguste Avril, age 25 years, merchant goldsmith and maternal uncle of the infant."|
He appears in the 1811 New Orleans City directory:
Avril, Hugues . . . orfevre, gold and silver smith . . . 28 Conde
He appears in the 1822 New Orleans City Directory:
Avril, Hugues . . . jeweler . . . 7 St. Ann bel. Levee
He is in the 1832 City Directory:
Avril, Hugues . . . goldsmith . . . 18 St. Ann
The only Avril who might be him in the 1842 directory is "H. Avril" who runs a "variety story" ast 18 St. Ann. This might be a relation, but I doubt that it's him.
On the 1840 census for his son Joseph, one FWM aged 50-59 appears that might be him. He's not on the 1850 census.
I see nothing that might be him in the death indices, nor can I find an obituary.

He appears several times more as well. |
Then, in 1736: "present Mary Wedge servt to Thomas Harwood for having a Malattoe Bastard," and "Lord Proprietary vs. Mary Wedge }Malatto Bastardy Convict by Confession ... cannot gainsay but that she is guilty ... be a servant for seven years ... child be a servant to thirty one ... sold unto Robert Perle for 2 pounds one shilling current money."
This seems to be the end of the case. According to the introduction to the section of hte website on Maryland, "Mary Wedge of Prince George's County had at least five children between 1727 and 1738." Her relationship therefore seems to have been a long-standing one. She seems to have been a white woman.
This is a fascinating website for the primary sources it collects.

|437||A. Warfield (pub 1905) just gives this: "The issue of Major Henry Hall by his second wife Elizabeth Lansdale, were: First. Edward—Martha Duckett. Issue, Eleanor W.[,] Priscilla, Henrietta, Richard, Captain John, and Thomas" (99). |
[Second, Isaac; Third, Margaret; Fourth, William]
This is Edward who was b. 1735
B. Hall gives this (pub 1941, p159): "Issue of Edward Hall, born May, 1714, married Martha Duckett, 1738. Died 1744:
—Edward Hall, married Mary Sprigg;
—John Hall, married Achsah Marriott, daughter Augustine Marriott.
—Sarah Hall, married Edward Yeahall"
The will of Edward Hall composed 1743, is printed in Hall on p100, naming him the 4th son of Rev. Henry Hall; these four chiildren are named in the will. No wife's name is not mentioned in the will. Jane and Sarah are as yet unmarried.
C. In Whitley (pub 1947, p12): Martha Duckett, twin of Rachel: b. 8-14-1716; m. 1 Rignal Odell; m. 2 Edward Hall.
D. Generic "Marriage records" on Ancestry say that Martha Duckett b. 1716 married Reginal Odell in 1754, but where this is from is not clear. That would be awfully late for a first marriage, if this is to match Whitley.
E. In Newman MDoMP says that Edward Hall never married Martha Duckett. Edward Hall b. 1714 married Mary Belt, not Martha Duckett: "Thomas John Hall in his book p. 159 erroneously states that Edward Hall married Martha Duckett and gives a list of Halls who are in no manner descended from the Rev. Mr. Hall. The above document proves definitely that anne became the sole heiress" (402 n.).
"This document" is a convenyance by Ann Hall daughter of Edward of property "originally called Parrott's Thickett but was afterwards resurveeyed and called Parrott's Manor lying and being in Prince George's County on the West side of the Patuxent River containing 300 acres Devised in Tail by the last will and testament of Henry Hall late of St. James' Parish, Clerk, in Anne Arundel County unto his sone Edward Hall Reference being had unto said Will which said land has by descent become the right and property of the said Anne Griffith the daughter and only child of the said Edward Hall" (402). In his will the Rev. Henry Hall had left "Parrott's Manor" to his son Edward (Hall, p98; transcribed as "Panot's Manor").
F. Doliante (pub 1991, p143) says that Martha Duckett b. Mar. 17, 173_[8 or 9?]; living 1785, married as her second husband June 14, 1764, Q.A.'s Parish, Edward Hall, said to have been son of Henry and Elizabeth (Lansdale) Hall. Doliante doesn't give evidence for this, though.

According to MacKenzie, "ROBERT BROOKE, b. at London, 3d June, 1602; d. 20th July, 1655, and is buried at Brooke Place Manor; matriculated at Wadham College, Oxford, 28th April, 1618; B.A., 6th July, 1620; M.A., 20th April, 1624; m.

(secondly) 11th May, 1635, Mary MAINWARING, 2d dau. of Roger MAINWARING, Doctor of Divinity and Dean of Worcester, and Bishop of St. Davids; she d. 29th November, 1663.
Robert Brooke immigrated to America, and arrived in Maryland, 30th June, 1650, with his second wife, Mary, ten children, and twenty-eight servants, all transported at his own cost. He and his sons Baker and Thomas took the oath of fidelity to the Proprietary, 22d July, 1650. At London, 20th September, 1649, a commission had been issued to him as Commander of a County to be newly erected, and on the same day a separate commission as member of the Council of Maryland. A new County called Charles was erected, and he was constituted its Commander, 30th October, 1650. Was head of Provisional Council of Maryland, under the Cromwellian Government, from 29th March to 3d July, 1652. Member of the Council and Commander of Charles Co. until 3d July, 1654. Settled on the Patuxent at De la Brooke. In 1652 removed to Brooke Place, adj. De la Brooke."
According to Cope, This couple "with their ten children and twenty-eight servants came to Charles Co., Maryland, June 25, 1650. The settled near the Pautexent, and was appointed ‘Commander' of Charles County, and afterward president of hte council of Maryland."
There are MANY other descendants of this family which I have not recorded. I have recorded two lines: one from this Robert's from this Robert's first wife Mary Baker (via Thomas) to Catherine Murdoch Brooke, who married Isaac Lansdale III; and a second from this Robert's second wife Mary Mainwaring (via Roger) leading to Hannah, Sarah, and Mary Brooke, who married key founders of Triadelphia in Isaac Briggs, Caleb Bentley, and Thomas Moore. This line also leads to Charles Farquhar's marriage to Cornelia Strain.
