Robert William Pattison's Letter to his daughter
Date unknown
1006-5th Miami, Fla.
Mr. E. F. Cooper
My dear daughter. You ask me questions away back father than I know. My Mother came from Ireland. My father came from England. He ran away and came to the U.S. when he was quite a boy.
My Mother was a King is all I know about her folks. The girls of my fathers childrens names was Sarah & Lizzie. The boy Jim as near as I remember. I don't know his first wife's name. My own sisters name was Mary. She was older than I was. She died when three or four years old. I had a Aunt Betsy King, my Mother's sister. She married John Boatwright. She died without children. Uncle John married a Miss Hamock. She had one child a girl. Her name Ola. She married Saunders Waller. Uncle John married a widow. I don't know her name only Zilfia. She had one child by Uncle John. Uncle John died and she married Samp Davis. She had several children by Davis.
My Father died when he was 85 years old. When he died in October and I was 9 in Nov. He was in two wars here in the United States, the Indian and the civil war.

Excerpt from "Family Moves to Florida"
In 1882, Robert moved his Family to Florida. After he had heard from a friend,
Mr. Westbrook, he was encouraged to move to the area. The family traveled by
wagon, train, boat and then train again. They took only what would fit in their
suitcases. Mr. Westbrook met the Pattison family at the train station and took
them to Eustis, Florida. It broke the children's hearts to have to leave Grandma
Pattison in Georgia. She stayed with the Boatwright's and at the home of Zilphy
Davis in Early County, Georgia. It was at the Davis home where Martha Annie King
Pattison died in 1885 at the age of 60.

Excerpt from Life History of Robert William Pattison
Robert entered the army before he was sixteen to fight for the Confederacy during the Civil War. After the war he became an overseer for his uncle Henry Boatwright (Martha Annie King's brother in law). Today he would have been called a farm foreman.
The next time we have any record of Robert William Pattison is in the settlement of the John Henry Boatwright estate. The estate settlement states:
"To wife Zelpha a minimum (listed) of household goods and $75.00 for support of widow and orphans."

Robert William Pattison's Letter to his daughter
Date unknown
1006-5th Miami, Fla.
Mr. E. F. Cooper
My dear daughter. You ask me questions away back father than I know. My Mother came from Ireland. My father came from England. He ran away and came to the U.S. when he was quite a boy.
My Mother was a King is all I know about her folks. The girls of my fathers childrens names was Sarah & Lizzie. The boy Jim as near as I remember. I don't know his first wife's name. My own sisters name was Mary. She was older than I was. She died when three or four years old. I had a Aunt Betsy King, my Mother's sister. She married John Boatwright. She died without children. Uncle John married a Miss Hamock. She had one child a girl. Her name Ola. She married Saunders Waller. Uncle John married a widow. I don't know her name only Zilfia. She had one child by Uncle John. Uncle John died and she married Samp Davis. She had several children by Davis.
My Father died when he was 85 years old. When he died in October and I was 9 in Nov. He was in two wars here in the United States, the Indian and the civil war.

This story has been passed down the family for years. I have not been able to find the original source or proof of the full name, John "Henry" Boatright. There was at least another time Robert William Pattison called him John Henry Boatright. Apparently most places online give John Boatright a middle initial of "W". Cannot reconcile this contradiction so far. Unless John had a longer name such as John W. Henry Boatright. Is there another John Boatright who married a Betsy Elizabeth in Georgia who was the same age? Who died before 1870 and had a child named "Ola" Viola.

7. Both are listed on the picture of the gravestone with birth and death dates.

D. LeGros Cadet Young, b. 1734/1740, probably Brunswick County, Virginia . He died February or March, 1787, at the Congarees, Camden District, R ichland County, South Carolina. LeGros married Mary McGrew in South Carol ina, date unknown. LeGros is mentioned as a son in at least one lette r written by Michael Cadet Young. In addition, there are two letters writ ten by LeGros Young to his brother Thomas. (More in his separate file.)
For more up to date information email Janice McAlpine at macalpage@cox.n et

Prepared August 17, 2006, by Janice McAlpine, 2345 Oleander Street, Bat o n Rouge, Louisiana 70806. E-mail: macalpage@cox.net

Legros Cadet Young was born abt. 1733/1740, St. Andrewâs Parish, Brunswic k Co., Virginia. He died before 5 March 1787, the Congarees, Camden Dis t rict, South Carolina. (Now Richland Co.) He married Mary McGrew and ha d at least two children with her, David and Isabella.

There are two letters from LeGros in the Kennedy Collection at UNC Chap e l Hill (copied in the last part of these notes) and he is mentioned i n other letters in that collection. He moved to South Carolina at some p oint before 1759 and lived at the Congarees. I assume that he was at lea st 18 at that point, if not older. He married Mary McGrew in South Carol ina, date unknown. She died in 1783. They had two children, David and I s abella both of whom died died by 1790 unmarried and without issue. (Inf or mation about Mary McGrew and her Young children from 6 December 1808 l itigation in Richland Co., South Carolina. See below.) LeGros died inte state and his estate was probated in Camden District, South Carolina, 178 7, by his brothers-in-law, William McGrew. There were a number of Young s in the area, so it is possible that Mary McGrew was a second wife and t hat LeGros had children by a first marriage who survived to adulthood an d married, but I have not been able to make those connections.

In the next two paragraphs, I am repeating what is said about LeGros fro m Calvin Duvall Cowles Cowles and Walter J. Young because their version i s cited in most genealogies. Unfortunately, neither contains accurate in formation about LeGros.

MEMORIAL AND FAMILY TREE OF MICHAEL CADET YOUNG, OF BRUNSWICK COUNTY, VA . AND OF HIS DESCENDANTS FROM 16__to 1895 by Captain Calvin Duvall Cowle s of the US Army.
“Le Gros Young, son of Michael Cadet Young and Martha (Sadler) Young, s ettled in or near the present site of the city of Columbia, S.C., whic h h e is said to have owned. During the Revolutionary War he visited hi s relations in Virginia while enroute to attend the Continental Congres s or s ome convention of which he was a member, but no official record o f his services in such body has yet been found.” (Copy of Cowles in pap er file.)

According to Walter Jorgensen Young's book, â€[w]hile in South Carolina , Michael Cadet Young patented the Middle Piedmont Plantation which he ga ve to his son, LeGros Young. The plantation was on the site of the presen t State Capitol where LeGros ‘built the first house’ in what is now C olum bia, and from where he went to represent that colony in 1774 to th e Conti nental Congress. He visited the family of Thomas Young enroute t o Congres s." (The Young family of Bristol, Young, Walter Jorgensen, Fre dericksbur g, Va.: C.A. Carmichael, 1937, p. 7)

Given the problems with the research underlying Cowles’ manuscript an d Walter Jorgensen Young's book, it is not surprising that their account s are wildly inaccurate. I have not found LeGros Young on any list of del egates to the Continental Congress. These lists have been preserved. I f h e isn’t on those lists, he did not represent South Carolina at th e Continental Congress. I think someone misread the 1768 letter from Mic hael Cadet Young to his son Thomas in which MCY wrote that Legros would v isit Thomas on Legrosâs "journey for the Congarees." If the reader did n ot know that LeGros lived in the part of old South Carolina called the Co ngarees, it would have been easy to misread the old hand writing to say t hat he was on a "journey for the Congress." However, anyone with a minim al back ground in American history would have known that there was no Con tinental Congress in 1768, when the letter was written, or even in 1774 , as alleged by Walter Young.

I went through South Carolina deed and will books (1719-1790) plus histor ies of the state and Richland Co, where Michael Cadet Young supposedly ac quired property in the 1720s and where Legros supposedly "built the firs t house" in what is now Columbia. I also went through the on-line index o f the South Carolina Department of Archives and History. Because pre-178 5 land records in South Carolina were centralized in Charleston, they wer e not burned during the Civil War or in other county courthouse fires s o common in the South. As a result, records from the period, 1720-1785 , exist, with the originals in Charleston, and microfilm copies in the So uth Carolina Department of Archives and History (Columbia). There is n o record of Michael Cadet Young ever having owned land in South Carolina . There also is no record of the Middle Piedmont Plantation which Michae l Cadet Young supposedly gave to his son, LeGros Young.

There is a detailed history of Richland Co., which listed all the early s ettlers and original land owners. Not a single Young was mentioned. In a ddition, the first land owners in the area did not acquire land until Ma y 19, 1732, and there were no settlers actually living in the area befor e 1740. This means that Michael Cadet Young did not patent land in Richla nd Co. in the 1720s, as Walter Young alleged. (Young, p. 7) Also, the l and acquired in 1786 for Columbia belonged to two large landowners name d Taylor, not to Michael Cadet Young or Legros Young. (A History of Rich land County South Carolina, Vol. 1 1732-1805, by Edwin L. Green.)

I found an "unrecorded plat for land not granted" for Legros Young, bu t it was in Craven Co., not in the Richland Co area. (Craven Co. was cr eated 1683 but discontinued 1769. Records for Old Craven County are on f ile in Charleston.)

The absence of Legros Youngâs name from South Carolina property records m eans, at a minimum, that he was not a large land-owner. It likely mean s that he did not own any land at all. (Unfortunately, I have not seen a ll the documents in his probate record to confirm this.) It is possible t hat Legros either rented or served as a factor or agent for a large lando wner in South Carolina. His brother Thomas Cadet Young was a factor fo r land owners in Virginia from the mid-1760s to the mid-1770s, so thi s a reasonable supposition.

I have found very few records for Legros in South Carolina, but Legros wa s an appraiser in the estate of Thomas Elden, Camden District, S.C. Apt 2 3 Pck 788 3 December 1782. Warrant of appraisment to Benjamin Evert, La G rove [sic] Young, Alexdr McGrew, John Sojourner and William Taylor. 2 8 December 1782 sworn Benja Everit, LeGros Young and Alexdr McGrew. (Camd en District, S.C., wills and administration, 1781-1787, Brent Holcomb, El mer Parker, 1978, p. 20)

LeGros Young's estate was probated in Camden District, South Carolina 17 8 7: Young, LeGros At. 76, Pck 2712. William McGrew applied for administr ation of LeGros Young, late of Congaree, 5 March 1787. Citation publishe d by Joseph Rees, 11 day March 1787.

I took a look at the men who were listed on these documents and discovere d that Alexander and William McGrew were brothers. William Taylor was mar ried to their sister Margaret McGrew. Another McGrew sister, Mary, show s up in court documents as married to a "Grove Young."

McGrew Family:
I have the following information about the McGrew family, but I don't kno w whether it is accurate. I suspect that Mary McGrew was born later tha n 1734. I am guessing that Mary probably was one of Alexander Sr's younge r children because Mary's children with LeGros both appear to have died w ithout marrying. In addition, Mary's son David did not probate his fathe r's estate. Presumably, had he been of age in 1787, he would have handle d the estate rather than leaving that to his uncles. Mary McGrew's brothe r, William McGrew was said to have been born 24 Apr 1752 in Orangeburg Di st, SC. I suspect that he and Mary might have been roughly the same age . But this is all speculaton on my part.

The following information about the McGrew family came from Barbara Ferr e ll . I have not independently confirmed it, but Barb ara has a lot of reliable appearing documentation for the family:

Michael Cadet Young Letter: â€To Thomas Cadet Young on Crooked Creek, Lun e nburgh County”

Thursday 2nd of June 1768
Son Thomas,
This day your Brother Legros intended for your House in order to procee d on his journey to the Congarees, but just before his departure from hom e your sisterâs suitor Brock, arrived with his waggon [sic] from Petersbu rg and insisted ons staying this night, indeed myself and your mother req uired him to stay ‘till morning which upon our [?] he agreed to.

Mr. Brock seems to be very [?] on his courtship and by what I guess by he r conduct [she? M?] has an inclination to him and to be fully satisfie d of the man's character, and way of living. Your mother [her?] self ha s desired your Brother Legros to call upon John Marshall and to make enqu iry of him and others in the neighborhood about Brock and to know for cer tain the truth of his conduct and living, which you Brother is to acquain t me by a letter. But I think it would be much better if your business c ould permit it, that you would take [?] with your Brother as far as Fis hing Creek to be satisfied [?]: For various are the reports concerning hi m. Some saying that he is a married man and others that he is not, and t hat his wagon and team are his own property, if so considering the misfor tunes your poor sister has had it will be a tolerable match for her, bu t if it be otherwise, she must wait longer to better her self.

[The next section seems to have been written later. Most of the first se ntence, and perhaps more, is missing.]
When I came …. after [?] stay, I [?] over to Capt. Buchner Stitth's t o keep house for them that night while they were gone to Capt. ??mmons t o a Coit Play and when I returned in the morning was agreeably surprise d with the [?] of your brother who was come back from his journey to a [ several words obscure] of the character of Brock who is such a base scoun drel Your Brother went to [see?] John Marshall who informed him that th e base intruder was a married man that he has a wife and two children [wo rds obscure] that they wo?? [his?] habits with papers for such; that he , the said Brock, is a drunken worthless fellow; that he owes to one Mr . Parks for whom he waggons for at least sixty or seventy pounds; that h e is so dishonest that Marshal was afraid to trust him with his tobbo [to bacco] when he waggoned it to the Point; that it is expected that he wil l run away soon and that he is so much in debt that it is impossible fo r him soon to get out of it and in short that he is a very roguish knave . These tidings from your kind brother came very opportunely to preven t the misery and shame your sister would by this rogues insinuations hav e been brought to, if not thus timely prevented. I am resolved if ever h e comes again (or any such) not to suffer him to stay in my house and t o sharply reprimand him for his wicked designs.

[There seems to be a missing piece to the letter because the first senten ce in the following section does not fit with the last sentence in the pr evious section.]
toward his sister in preventing this [?] delusions taking effect upon he r and has advised her for the future to be very cautious of all strangers , and indeed of every man who pretends to offer their humble service to h er, and not to give anyone too much liberties, but to keep them off at pr oper distance ‘till she knows in the first place what they are and seco ndly if they are upon honorable forms and lastly if they are sincerely an d affectionately bent upon matrimony; and if so, then not to give her sui tor no more liberties than modesty will bear and [?] require. With thi s advice he took his leave of her and his Mother on the Monday following , and then came to me who was in the corn-field and bad me farewell and p roceeded on his journey again the second time.

I hope that you and Judith and Children are all well which is the desir e of your affectionate father. M. Cadet Young.

Michael Cadet Young was born Michael Cadet, probably shortly before hi s c hristening on 29 April 1700, at Saint Andrew’s Church, Enfield, L ondon , England. The christening record reads: “Michael Cadett Christe ning: 2 9 April 1700 Saint Andrew, Enfield, London, England, parents: Fra ncis Cad ett and Mary.” (St. Andrew's Church, Enfield, Middlesex, reg isters in t he London Metropolitan Archives, LDS film 0,585,397.)

As mentioned in the file for MCY's father, François Cadet, MCY's paren t s lost a number of children in infancy. As was common in those days, t he y “reused” important family names, giving subsequent children th e same na mes as deceased siblings. As a result, François and Marie Cade t had two s ons named Michael, one born in 1694 and one born in 1700. Th e christenin g record for the first Michael is abstracted as follows:

"Michael Cadet bpt.: 28 Mar 1694, Threadneedle Street French Huguenot Ch u rch, London, England. Parents: François Cadet and Marie, witnessed b y Ja cques Cadet and Jacques le Gros." (Colyer-Fergusson, T. C., The Regi ster s of the French Church, Threadneedle Street, London, Aberdeen, 1906 , p . 131, The Publications of the Huguenot Society of London, XVI; an d 160 0 - 1639 942.1 L1 B4H V.9 Book England, London, St. Bartholomew b y the Ex change - Church records - Indexes Computer printout of London, T hreadneed le Street French Huguenot, Lond., Eng LDS 6903811 Number of Fic he: 6; Ori ginals of Registers at Guildhall Library London.)

An earlier researcher, Robert Young Clay, a long-time senior libraria n a t the Library of Virginia, found the 1694 christening record for Mich ae l Cadet and assumed that he had the correct record for our Michael Cad e t Young. Until April of 2008, I also assumed that it was the right re co rd for our Michael Cadet Young. However, when I went through microfil m o f original baptismal/christening records at the LDS Family History Li brar y in Salt Lake City, I found the second record for Michael Cadet, so n o f François and Marie Marthe Cadet in the Parish registers of St. An drew' s Church, Enfield, London, Middlesex, England. For the reasons out line d in my file for François Cadet, I am confident that the second 170 0 chri stening record is the correct one for our MCY.

He was in real estate and it is said that he owned Powderly,
Alabama. I have not been able to proof that he "owned Powderly",
but he did own a great deal of land. He owned a brick making copy in
Birmingham. I have the copies of the city directory pages that show
this. He was a bachelor. Granddaddy stayed with him when he was
young and worked in Birmingham.

Uncle Zack donated land to Birmingham on which Cunningham
School was built. Cunningham was a black school and now has been
torn down. It was located in Avondale.

He is buried here in Birmingham. In his will, he left money to
his siblings who were living and if they were dead, to their decendants.
This actually didn't turn out to have been worth a lot because of the
depression, but at one time it would have been worth a great deal. If
the heirs had not pushed to have the land sold and the will settled, the
land would have undoubtedly been worth a great deal more than it was
sold for.

A parcel of land that was not sold when his other land was sold after
his death, was annexed (?, bought for taxes?) by Elmwood Cemetery.
Mama said that she remembered hearling this and thinks that it was in the
paper, but no one had the money to redeem the property.

According to "The Boone Family" by Hazel Spraker
"Sallie Boone, married __________Christopher."
Sallie was the daughter of a Daniel Boone, but not "the" Daniel Boone. This Daniel was "a
farmer, moved from North Carolina to De Soto County, Mississippi, sometime about
1830 or 1835. Family tradition says that he was a nephew of Daniel Boone, understood
to be a son of one Joe Boone, a brother (?) of Daniel, the Kentucky pioneer. He married
a Miss Boykin from near Baltimore, Maryland."

Spraker believes this Daniel is the son of a Joseph Boone, born 1752 in NC; died 1836;
married Sarah Bass. He was a Rev. soldier, with the rank of Colonel in the NC Militia;
had charge of prisoners at the time of Gen. Gates retreat after the battle of Camden, SC,
1780. List of his children & grandchildren are to be found in Boone Family Records of
"Genalogy," Vol. VII, No. 8, p. 127, ed. by Wm. M. Clemens (1917, which states that
this Joseph had a son Daniel whose six sons and two daughters (Note: actually looks more
like 6 daughters & 2 sons) lived in Hernando, Miss. Joseph Boone was a NC State
Senator from Johnstone Co. in 1787.

Siblings of Sallie Boone are:
Eliza m. Mr. Sanders
Harriet m Mr. Whitley
Louise m Mr. Slocum
? m Mr. Killibrew
? m Dr. Geeter
Joseph Simon Boykin Boone m Sarah Lucinda Oliver
William John Abner Boone m Augusta N. White & Ursula Jane Sherrod

Hope this helps. Spraker has this family under "Undetermined Connections."

Thomas Gordon was a descendant of the Huntly branch of Gordon's of Scotla nd. He was born in 1745 in County of Down, near Newly (Ulster), Norther n Ireland. In 1750, when Thomas was five years old, he and his mother, Ja ne Stewart Gordon, came to America and settled in the northeastern sectio n of Albemarle County, Virginia, near Charlottesville and the town of Gor donsville, There he grew to manhood, and in 1770, he married Sarah Flyn n of nearby Orange County, Virginia, who was born in 1750. Thomas serve d in the Revolutionary War. While still a resident of Virginia, and les s than a year following the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Gordon o n May 11, 1777 enlisted in the 16 Virginia Continental Regiment for servi ce in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. This Regiment was organized by Colone l William Grayson of Prince William County, Virginia, who later becam e a United States Senator from Virginia. Thomas Gordon was assigned a s a private soldier to the Company commanded by Captain Cleon Moore of Fa irfax County, Virginia. Under the direction General George Washington, Th omas Gordon fought, in Pennsylvania, in the battles of Brandywine on Sept ember 11, 1777, and Germantown on October 4, 1777, He spent the bitterl y cold winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania where his regime nt was given military instruction and training under General Baron Von St euben. On June 28 1778, Thomas Gordon fought in the battle of Monmouth, i n New Jersey, with the temperature a reported 96 degrees in the shade. Th e Grayson Regiment played an important part in this battle, and Colonel G rayson was commended for valor in action. General Washington's Army spen t the winter of 1778-1779 at Camp Middlebrook in Somerset County, New Jer sey. On April 22, 1779 the Grayson and Gist Virginia Continental Regiment s were united and Colonel Nathaniel Gist was made its commander, with Col onel Grayson being assigned to other duties. Thomas Gordon was transferre d to the Company in the Gist Regiment that was headed by Captain Strothe r Jones. The records of the United States War Department show that Thoma s Gordon last appeared on the payroll of the Jones Company in November, 1 779. The Revolutionary War military service of Thomas Gordon lasted for t wo and a half years. At some point during his Revolutionary War service , Thomas Gordon and 14 Continental soldiers were captured by the Britis h and held for some time as Prisoners of War until they were rescued by m ounted American Forces. It is not known when the capture and rescue occur red. During their imprisonment, the wrists of the Continental soldiers we re bound by green hickory withes, which when the hardened and dried, cu t deep wounds, leaving scars as permanent reminders of their painful suff erings inflicted by the British soldiers. To this marriage were born seve n children. About 1780, as the Revolutionary War neared its end, Thomas G ordon and family, moved to Surry County, North Carolina and established t heir residence near the west bank of what is now known as Stewart's Creek , near Mount Airy, in the White Plains community just north of Highway 60 1. They raised other children in Surry county and engaged in farming. I n April, 1803, both Thomas Gordon and Sarah Gordon were killed when thei r home was struck by lightning. They were buried in a field near their ho me, in separate coffins in a common grave. In later years, their farm bec ame a portion of the the farm properties of Eng and Chang Bunker, the fam ous Siamese twins.

# Will: 7 MAY 1803 Sworn by friend, Josiah Lovelace 4
# Residence: 1785 From Virginia to North Carolina 8
# Note:

Thomas Gorton moved to Albermarle County, Virginia from Ulster, Ireland , when he was about 5 years old (Possibly near Culpepper, Va., near a com munity of Gordons who were relatives of General John B. Gordon). He marri ed Sarah Flynn and had three children while living in Virginia. He serve d two and one half years in the Virginia Militia during the Revolutionar y War and then in 1785, he and his family moved to the west side of Stewa rt's Creek, about two and a half miles west of Mount Airy, North Carolina .

At that time, Mount Airy was part of Surry County, but in December of 178 9, Stokes county was formed from part of Surry County. Three months later , on March 2, 1790, the first jury was selected for Stoke County and Thom as Gordon was the first person slected for jury duty. The first term of t he court was devoted to organization of county gover nment with some othe r minor business, but no trials were held.

Thomas and Sarah Gorton had seven children in all. The family engaged i n farming. As was the custom in those days the kitchen was a separate bui lding from the other part of the house. The main part of the house was re ferred to as the "big house."

In late April or early May, 1803, Thomas and Sarah were in the big ho us e and the children were in the kitchen washing their feet. It was stormin g out so the children did not cross over to the big house at that time. T homas was resting on a trundle bed that had been pulled out from a large r bed and Sarah was "spooling" a piece of cloth, as was necessary in thos e days when the women spun and wove the cloth used to clothe the family , when a bolt of lightening struck the big house, tearing a hole throug h the roof and instantly killing both Thomas and Sarah.

The children heard the clash of the lightening, but did not know it had h it the big house. When the storm was over the children came to the big ho use and were horrified to find their parents lying dead. Sarah still ha d the thread clutched in her fingers and was holding a pair of scissors.

They were buried in separate coffins but in the same grave on their f arm . Later the farm became the property of Eng and Chang Bunker, the world f amous "Siamese Twins."

History of Adair County
By Eugene Morrow Violette
------------
The Dockery Hotel located on the corner of Elson and McPherson Streets in Kirksville, Missouri, was originated in 1904 by Thomas Jefferson Dockery, renowned businessman in Kirksville. It was once an elaborate building that housed Kirksville's visitors. When Mr. Dockery acquired the hotel in 1895 through an unpaid mortgage, it was called the Leslie Hotel. He made plans to build on and increase the size of the hotel, then re-opened it on December 21, 1904.

Around the turn of the century, a room and board problem existed in Kirksville due to patients coming to receive the new osteopathic treatments of the students of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still who invented this practice. Several hotels sprung up in Kirksville to accommodate these patient visitors.

When first opened, the Dockery Hotel was a very beautiful building. The front veranda, which faced the morning sun, covered the entire front portion of the building, 150 feet, while extending from the building 14 feet. The façade, as well as the veranda, was decorated in galvanized tin. The two story structure was made of brick and had two bay windows on the second floor. In the rear, between the sides of the building, was a flower garden.

The interior of the hotel was very elaborate in its design. The office in the northeast corner of the building was 30 x 54 feet and had a black and white checkerboard Tennessee marble floor. This flooring was also in the barbershop, located in the southeast corner of the hotel. The rest of the hotel floor, in addition to the mill work, was made of oak. The ground floor had two oak stairways leading to the second floor. The stairway in the front was straight and the one in the rear was spiral and led to a large glass skylight on the second floor landing.

There were 75 guest rooms in the hotel. It was not common in those days for each room to have a bath, but 10 rooms in the Dockery Hotel had a private bath. Each had a coal stove for heat. Later, a boiler and steam pipe system were installed and radiators were put in each room.

Mr. Dockery had a few famous guests at his hotel. William Jennings Bryan spoke at the hotel on August 2, 1907, while on his presidential campaign. A circus troop once stayed at the hotel. The camels in the show slept in the lobby.

From Violette's History of Adair County, Missouri, by DOCKERY, Thomas J.

I came to Adair County with my parents in July 1855. This was at the time a typical frontier country, very sparsely settled, with probably ninety percent of the land belonging to the Government. The prairies were covered with a luxuriant growth of wild grass, called blue stem, which reached a height of from two to six feet and made an excellent quality of hay. From May until frost, the landscape was dotted with wild flowers of every variety and color. In the timbered portion of the county, there was absolutely no brush. The trees were very large and the ground underneath was covered with prairie grass. The massive trees, the prairie flowers and grass all combined to make this a truly beautiful and inviting country.

The county settlers at the time of my parents arrival, were people that had followed the advance of civilization from Kentucky, Tennessee and North Carolina. They were for the most part hunters and depended largely for their food on wild game. Of this there was an abundance and it was an easy matter to kill all the deer and turkeys needed. It was not an uncommon thing to see from five to ten deer in a gang, and I have seen as many as one hundred turkeys in a flock. In addition to hunting, farming was done on a small scale. Ten acres was considered a large field, and five acres was perhaps more than average in size.

These pioneers were strong, healthy people, honest and fair in their dealings and very hospitable and social. Their houses were constructed of logs, and when a new one was to be built, every one for ten miles or more around would join in and lend a helping hand.

Law suits among neighbors were indeed rare, but when it occurred, it was tried before a Justice of the Peace, and aroused much interest throughout the community. I remember soon after we came here, a suit was brought before a Justice of the Peace in our locality and I attended the trial with my father. There were, I think, at least seventy-five present, and to show how primitive the methods of the day were, when it was found necessary for some writing to be done, the Justice discovered there was no ink in the court room. Not dismayed, he called forth in a loud voice the constable and ordered him to mount his pony and ride, post-haste, to "Old Man Holman's" farm, which was one and one-half miles distant, and get a bunch of poke-berries to make ink. The court thereupon enjoyed a recess. A little later the constable returned with the berries, their juice was extracted for the ink, and the case proceeded.

There was little money in the county in these early days. In truth, there was no great need for it. Every one wore home-spun clothes and nearly all furniture and agricultural implements were made by home workmen, whose charges were very low. All the leather used was tanned in the county. The settlers would take hides to the tanyard, where they were tanned on the shares. Nearly every family owned a set of cobbler's tools, with which the father, or some other member of the household, made and mended shoes for the family.

Though this may come as a shock to present temperance advocates, practically all families kept on hand a supply of whiskey as an ague preventative. In fact, every store had a barrel of it, with a tin cup placed near by, that their customers might take a drink, if they desired. In spite of plentifulness of whiskey, there were few habitual drunkards.

To illustrate on what a small scale things were done at this time, a commission was appointed by the county court to purchase furniture for Adair county's first court house. At the next term of court, a report was made that two benches and three chairs had been bought at a cost of $3.50.

Very few of the best lots around the square sold in the early fifties for more than $5.00, the majority for less. The lot where the Adair County Lumber Company building now stands, was knocked off at auction to Col. John T. Smith, one of the county's first settlers and a very influential man in his day, for the sum of $1.00. He felt that he had paid too much and didn't want to take the deed, but being threatened with a lawsuit, he consented and later sold the property for $800.

The two lots directly north of the Trust Company building were purchased by Harve Sloan, now deceased, for $5.00, which he paid in cord wood. It was, of course, little trouble to go west of town and cut all the wood one might want, from land belonging to the government.

I well remember one of the earliest transfers made in this city. M.G. Clem and Franklin Freeman sold to E.W. Parcells two acres of ground, described as "two acres of ground where the distillery now stands." This was the only description. The transfer was made October 11, 1847. The land was not entered til three years later. Of course land values, as well as the price of all other properties have advanced many fold since those early days, yet I feel sure we have only reached the beginning of our splendid progress, and that even greater things are in store for our people.

Those were times of privation and hardship in many ways, yet the people were contented and happy. I often wish I could see some of those old times again, and meet some of those old stalwart pioneers, but it is not to be. Nearly all I knew here when I came are gone and the times have passed, never to return.

Thomas arrived in the British Colonies of
North America (Portsmouth. Rhode Island) in
about 1638, at age 24, probably together with
his brother. George, who was a captain in the
British Royal Navy. In 1636 Roger Williams had
established Providence as a permanent settlement
for religious dissenters. On 30 April I639 Thomas
was one of 29 people (including his brother) who
signed the pact of Portsmouth, acknowledging
that they were legal subjects of King Charles of
England, and in his name bound Themselves into
a civil body politic.

Thomas Lawton (often spelled
"Layton") served as commissioner from
Portsmouth to the General Court in 1655, 1656,
1658, and 1661. In Portsmouth, he was granted
land near the top of Quaker Hill and also south of
Union Street. He later acquired extensive lands (at
least 600 acres) outside of Portsmouth—to the
northwest in Warwick, Rhode Island; to the
southwest in Dartmouth and Martha's Vineyard.
Massachusetts; and far to the south in Shrewsbury
Township, New Iersey.
All of Thomas's children were born by his

John Savile, Knight of Tankersley, married Margaret, younges t o f the three daughters and co-heirs of
Henry Rishworth of Rishworth. Ref.: Foster's Charts of Co. Fa m . of Lancashire. (These three
references give the name of this John's wife as spelled in dif f erent ways, but it is evidently the same
name. E. E. W.) Writers of reputation have ventured to asser t f or the Saviles a descent from the
Savelli, an Italian family, but this is probaby little more th a n a "piece of genealogical flattery." (I
thought that was a good way to express it. E. E. W.) The fami l y began early with small possessions in
the parish of Silkston in Yorkshire.

Description and small illustration in: Historical and Biograph i cal Genealogy of Molyneux Families, by
Nellie Zada Rice Molyneux.

1. Captain William Molyneux, or Molines, is claimed by traditi o n to have been the son of a Spanish
priest and a French nun, and received his name from the plac e w here he was born. He appears to
have been one of the most distinguished, as from the Battle Ab b ey roll, wherein his name stands 18th
in order, as from the old chronicles of the Duchy, wherein h e i s set down and placed as a special and
chief man, in nearness and singular credit with his royal mast e r. Captain and his brother Vivian were
in the front of the first expedition of the army sent by Willi a m the Conqueror, under the conduct of
Roger de Poicters, who was then possessed of all the tract o f l and in Lancaster, between the rivers
Ribbee and Mersy, by gift of the crown, gave among other lan d s and manors of Septon, Thornton
and Kirdon and half of lands as service of half knights fee. W h ereon William de Molyneux made
Septon his chief seat.

2. Vivian de Molyneux, upon whom Roger de Poicters, who was lo r d of the honour of Lancaster,
built a castle there, the government whereof was enjoyed f o r a long time by the noble family of
Molyneux, and bestowed on Vivian de Molyneux this manor. He ma r ried Sywarda .....

3. Adam de Molyneux, eldest son of Vivian, gave a grant of la n d in Mulling to the Church of the
Virgin Mary at Corksands, sealed with his seal of Cross Moli n s and bearing the legend, "S Adonis de
Molineux." He married Annota, only daughter and heiress of Ben e dict de Garnett, Lord of Speke,
County Lancaster. They had Robert, Gilbert, Sywarde and Anno r e or Annota. (There is a
discrepancy as given in the references; some say that Vivian a b ove was son of William and others say
Vivian was William's brother. This does not affect the lineag e , as it only in the


Page 688
Page 689


2nd generation. The line is definitely from Vivian, whethe r h e is son of William or his brother.)

4. Robert de Molyneux married in the time of King John, "The L a ckland," 1199-1216, Beatrice de
Villiers, daughter and heiress of Sir Robert de Villiers, Ea r l of Jersey; son of Richard de Villiers, of
Little, a Crusader under Edward I, and acquired the estate o f L ittle Crosby, County Lancaster; son
of Pagan de Villiers. Beatrice de Villiers was noted for her b e auty, and tradition says she was the
morganatic wife of King John. Beatrice was ambitious to be a q u een, in love with King John, and
loath to leave him, but was given by King John in marriage t o o ne of his barons, Sir Robert
Molyneux. She did bitterly curse the House of Molyneux and a l l that bore that name, calling down
maledictions of misery, blasting their lives with tragedy. T h e issue of this marriage, from whom
descended the Earls of Sefton, Ireland, Teversall and Nottingh a m, were Richard, Simon and John.

5. Richard Molyneux, eldest son, of Sefton, Little Crosby an d E speke. This baronial family of de
Molins, who became resident under Edward III, are stated to de r ive their name from the town so
called in Bourbonnais in France, but there may have been tak e n from one of the numerous places in
Normandy called Molines or Moulins, from the molendina or wat e r wells then existing. He married
Edith, sister of Almeric de Bottiler of Mernington, and had Ad a m, Robert and Richard, and by a 2nd
wife had four sons and three daughters.

6. Adam Molyneux, of Sefton, Esquire, who lived in the reig n o f Henry III, 1216-1272, had a
Forestership in County Lancaster, and was in the Commission f o r the perambulation of forests. He
married Lettice, or Letitia, Brenley.

7. William Molyneux of Sefton married Margaret de Thornton, da u ghter of Sir Alan Thornton, of
Leicestershire. His father Adam is supposed to be the Knight p o rtrayed in the glass of three windows
in the upper part of Bridgenorth Church, in Salop, in antiqu e m ail, clothed with a surcoat and girt with
his sword and spurs; over which is an equilateral triangular s h ield, on which the arms of Molyneux are
depicted. His son, this Sir William, was called to receive t h e degree of knighthood by Philip Ulnesby,
sheriff of that county, 1256. He gave to William, son of his b r other Roger, lands in Netherton near
Sefton, to hold by knights service, and the yearly rent of ha l f a penny, by a deed without date. By
Margaret Thornton, his wife, he had three sons, Richard, his s u ccessor, and William and Simon; to
the latter their father left lands in Letherland.

8. Sir Richard Molyneux, Knight, gave to his son Thomas, the E d ge, called by others the Hegg,
within his demesne of Sefton, to hold at the rent of one pen n y yearly. By Emme, his wife, daughter of
..... Done, he had three sons, Sir William, Thomas and Peter , a nd a daughter Joan, a nun at
Leicester.

9. Sir William Molyneux, of Sefton, Knight, was dubbed Knigh t B anneret in Gascony, in France, in
1285 by Edmund, Earl of Lancaster, 2nd son of Henry III. He ma r ried Isabel Scarsbrick, and had
Richard and a daughter Jane, wife of Robert de Erneys. He di e d 1289.

10. Sir Richard Molyneux, of Sefton, Little Crosby, and Spek e , was aged 17 at the death of his
father, and in the wardship and custody of John of Gaunt, Du k e of Lancaster, son of Edward III. He
married Agatha, either daughter of Sir Roger Kyrton of Lardbro o k, Roger Illerton, Knight, and had
issue Sir William, Richard of Larbeck, or Lardbrook (which see m s to prove that his mother was
daughter of Kyrton of Larbeck. E. E. W.), John Thomas and Roge r . He died 1363.

11. Sir William Molyneux, of Sefton and Little Crosby, succeed e d his father in 1363. He
distinguished himself at the Battle of Naveret, in Spain, und e r Edward, the Black Prince, where he
was made a banneret


Page 689
Page 690


in 1367, and continued to serve under that General in all hi s S panish and French wars. On his return
he died at Canterbury in 1372. This William had two wives: 1 s t Johannah or Joan, daughter and heir
of Jordan Ellall, forester of Wersdale, and his wife, one of t h e three daughters and coheirs of Thomas
de Twenge. He married 2nd Lady Margaret, daughter of Sir All e n Hetton, widow of Robert, brother
of Sir Thomas Holland, Knight of the Garter. By his first wi f e he had several sons; Sir William,
Thomas, Richard, Edward, John, Robert, Christopher, Peter an d S imon.

12. Sir William Molyneux, eldest son, was likewise a knight, a n d married Jane Holland, daughter of
Sir Robert Holland (evidently the daughter of his stepmother ) , by whom he left a son and heir,

13. Sir Richard Molyneux, Knight. In the first year of Henr y I V this Richard was found to be cousin
and next heir of Thomas Chatterton of Ellhall, viz., Richard , s on of William and Jane Holland; son of
William and Joan Ellhall; daughter of Jordan Elhall and Alic e T wenge. (Alice Twenge was sister to
Laderina Twenge); mother of Alan Chatterton; father of Alan; f a ther of William; father of Thomas
Chatterton. This Richard Molyneux was High Sheriff of Lancaste r , and with Sir Robert de Urswick
served as knights of the shire in the Parliament held at Westm i nster in the 20th of Richard II, 1397,
and had for their expenses for 34 days attendance œ13, 12s . H e married Ellen, daughter of Sir
Thomas Urswick, who was afterwards the wife of Sir Thomas Sava g e. They had Agnes, wife of
Thomas Clifton, and three sons, Richard, Adam and Robert.

14. Sir Richard Molyneux, son and heir, eminently distinguish e d himself in the wars of France, at the
Battle of Agincourt, and received the honour of knighthood i n t he reign of Henry V, and in
consideration of which services Henry granted to him and his s o n Richard, by patent dated July 26,
1446, the Chief Forestership of the Royal Forest and Park in W a pentake, by West Derbyshire, with
the offices of Sergeant and Steward, and also the office of Co n stable of Liverpool. He married 1st
Helen, daughter of William Harrington of Homble, in Lancaste r . (Another reference says she was

BARDOLF-WARREN-AGUILLON FAMILIES
TO WILLIAM HYDE.

Arms for Bardolf: Azure three cinquefoils Or.

Arms for Warren: Chequy Or and Azure.

Arms for Aguillon: Gules, a fleur-de-lis Argent.

1. William Bardolf, the first of this family on record, was Sh e riff of Norfolk and Suffolk, from 16th to
21st of Henry II, 1170-1175, inclusive, and after him came h i s son and heir,

2. Thomas Bardolf, who, upon scutage being levied of such baro n s as did not attend King Henry II
into Ireland, in the 18th of that monarch's reign, nor contrib u te money to that service, paid œ25 for
the scutage of those knight's fees, which formerly belonge d t o Ralph Hanselyn, Baron of Schelford, in
County Nottingham, whose daughter and heiress Rose he had marr i ed. This Thomas obtained from
William, brother of King Henry II, the lordship of Bradewell , t o hold to himself and his heirs by the
service of one knight's fee; three parts of which he bestowe d u pon his three daughters, viz: ....., wife
of Robert de St. Reniego; ....., wife of William Bacon; .... . , wife of Baldwin de Thoni. He was
succeeded by his son,

3. Doun or Dodo Bardolf, who, marrying daughter and heires s o f William de Warren, acquired by
her the Barony of Wirmegay, in County Norfolk, the chief sea t o f this branch of the Warren family.

1. A Danish knight, the progenitor of the Warren family, was a m ong those who succeeded in
obtaining a footing in Normandy, and became allied through mar r iage with some of the foremost
families of noble lineage in Europe. This knight had one son a n d five daughters: Herfastus, Gunnora,
Wevia, Werina, Duvelina and Sanifra.

2. Herfastus, only son, had a daughter,

3. ....., who married Walter de Saint Martin.

4. William, sire de Guarrenne, in Normandy, called Earl of War r en, married a daughter of Ralph de
Torta.

5. William de Warren accompanied William the Conqueror to Engl a nd, and married his daughter
Gundred. He was made 1st Earl of Surrey, and died 1088. They h a d William, Reginald, Gundred
and Edith. (This Reginald is given as the grandfather of Beatr i x de Warren who married Dodo
Bardolf, above, by one reference, but three other references p l ace her grandfather in a later
generation, and


Page 691
Page 692


dates prove that Reginald, son of this William, could not ha v e been her father.)

6. William de Warren, 2nd Earl of Surrey, married Isabel de Ve r mandois, daughter of Hugh Magnus,
Crusader, son of Henry I, King of France, and had William, Reg i nald, Ralph, Gundred and Ada.

7. Reginald de Warren, brother of William, 3rd Earl of Surre y , married Alice de Wormgay,
commonly known as Wrongay, in Norfolk. (Dugdale's Peerage of E n gland says that it was this
Reginald, and in the Monasticom there are three deeds provin g t hat also. In a manuscript in the
Herald's office marked D 46, amongst some notes taken ou t o f a book of the Monastery of St. Mary
de Overy, in Southward, it is said that William de Warren, 1 s t Earl, and Gundred, his wife, had
William, 2nd Earl, who by his wife Isabel had William, 3rd Ear l , and Reginald, who married Alice,
daughter and heiress of Wm. de Wormgay. Dugdale also says th a t this Reginald de Warren paid
knight's fees pertaining to the honor of Wormgay in 14th of He n ry II, 1168. William de Wormgay
was living 6th of Henry II, 1160, and Reginald de Warren was s t ill in possession of Wormgay 18th of
Henry II, 1172. The other Reginald, uncle of this Reginald, w a s head of an army of 300 men in 1090,
and it is hardly possible that he would still be living in 117 2 , because if he were in army in 1090, he
was born perhaps 1070, which would make him over 100 years o l d in 1172. E. E. W.) They had a
son,

8. William de Warren, son of Reginald and Alice de Wormgay War r en, married Beatrix de Perepont,
daughter of Hugh de Perepont, who bore arms: Azure, a chief ch e quy, or and gules; and by her had
Reginald, Beatrix and Isabel. He married 2nd Millicent, wido w o f Richard de Montfitchet, by whom
he had no issue. The son Reginald had no issue, and was buri e d in the Monastery of St. Mary's at
Southwark. William's wife Millicent appears to have had a 3r d h usband, Hubert de Burgh. Their
daughter Beatrix de Warren married Dodo de Bardolf, in the Bar d olf line above.

Beatrix de Warren had married 1st Ralph ....., and then marri e d 2nd Dodo Bardolf, who in right of
his wife was Lord of Wormgay, Reginald, her brother, having di e d sine prole before this 2nd
marriage. Dodo or Doun Bardolf bore for his arms: Azure thre e c inquefoils Or. We find him a
witness to a deed of Hameline Plantagenet de Warren to the mon k s of St. Mary's. He died 11th of
King John, 1210, having had male issue by his wife, immediate l y after which she gave account of
3500 marks, for having livery of the lands and tenements whi c h were her father's, and which ought to

inclination. Their son,

expedition which he then made into France. In the next yea r h e had livery of the honours of
Wormgay, which during his minority had been in the hands of Hu b ert de Burgh, Earl of Kent; and he

manors. He married Julian, daughter of Hugh de Gourney, and di e d in or before 1292. He was
summoned to attend the King at Shrewsbury, June 28, 1283, 11 t h of Edward I, by writ directed
Willelmo Bardolf. His wife died 1295. Their son,

6. Hugh Bardolf, who in the 22nd of Edward I, 1294, had summo n s with other prominent persons to
attend the King, to advise upon the affairs of the realm, an d w as subsequently summoned to
Parliament as Baron Bardolf, from Feb. 5, 1299, to June 2, 130 2 . He married Isabel, daughter and
heiress of Robert Aguillon, by whom he had two sons, Thomas a n d William. Hugh Bardolf was born
Sept. 29, 1259. He had seizin of his mother's lands Nov. 29, 1 2 95. He took an active part in French
and Scottish wars, and was one of the retainers of Henry de La c y, Earl of Lincoln, at Carlaverock.
He was knighted. In addition to their irregular summons of Ju n e 8, 1294, which would not serve to
create a barony, he was summoned from 1298/9 to 1302 by writ s , whereby he may be held to have
become Lord Bardolf. He and Isabel Aguillon were married befo r e 1282. Hugh Bardolf was a man
of considerable eminence, being possessed of the baronies of S h elford in Nottingham and Wormgay
in Norfolk. In the 22nd year of Edward I, 1294, he was summone d , with other great men, to attend
the King and advise with him on mighty affairs of the realm, a n d attended him into Gascony. And
being in Gascony in the 23rd year of Edward I, in the King's s e rvice (and then 40 years old), he had
by the King's special favour livery of the lands whereof Julia n , his mother, was seized at her death.
But in this service he was taken prisoner by the King of Fran c e at the siege of Risunce. However,
being liberated, he was again in the wars in Gascony, and in 2 8 /9th of Edward I was in the expedition
into Scotland. He died the same year, leaving his eldest son a n d heir, by the aforesaid Isabel, then 22
years of age, being then seized of the Manors of Birling in Su s sex, parcel of the barony of Gournay;
the Manor of Westburgh in Lancaster; the Manor of Wormgay in N o rfolk, with many other hamlets
and lands, and in right of the said Isabel, his wife, the Mano r s of Bures in Suffolk, Perting and
Plumpton in Sussex, and certain lands in Southampton. Isabel , t he wife of Hugh Bardolf, surviving her
husband, had, with the consent of Thomas, her son and heir , a n assignation for her dowry of the
Manors of Bercamp in Sussex, Ryskinton in Lincoln, and the Man o rs of Rungeton and Scrimpeshagh
in Norfolk. In the 33rd year of Edward I, 1305, Isabel, wido w o f Hugh Bardolf, obtained a grant
from the King of the Manors of Watton in Hertford, Adlingto n i n Surrey, and Emesworth in
Hampshire, to hold to herself for life, with remainder to Will i am, her younger son, and heirs of his
body, and remainder to her right heirs. (Meaning her daughte r I solda, and probably other children. E.
E. W.)

Aguillon Family.

1. Robert Aguillon received a grant of the Manor of Bardolf. T h is manor, of which the site is about
half a mile from the church, was called Bardolf from a famil y o f that surname, who enjoyed it for
many generations. Chauncey tells us that the lands of Derman a n d Alward, the Thanes who are said
to have held Wodstone before the time of the General Survey, w e re most of them granted to Peter
de Valoignes, and he tells us that Alexander de Baliol (who w a s descended from, and one of the
co-heirs of Peter de Valoignes) granted this manor and estat e o f Bardolf to Robert Aguillon. Robert
was the son of Mauser de Aguillon or Aquillon, the first of th i s family, who was mentioned in the time
of Richard I, 1189-99, whose son William de Aguillon, a rebe l b aron against King John, is claimed
by one reference to have been one of the twenty-five chose n b y them for the government of the
realm. (I have not been able at this time to substantiate th a t claim. E. E. W.) This Robert, son of
William, son of Mauser, was Sheriff of Sussex and Surrey, ti m e of Henry III, 1216-1272, who, being
faithful in the great rebellion against King Henry, was reward e d by the King with many favours.
Robert died about 14th of Edward I, 1286. His first wife was J o an, one of the daughters

and co-heirs of William Ferrers, Earl of Derby, and his wife S i billa Mareschal, one of the daughters
of William Mareschal, Earl of Pembroke, and one of the siste r s of the five successive Earls of
Pembroke, who all died sine prole. His 2nd wife was Margare t d e Ripariis, Countess of Devon. (The
references do not agree as to which one of these wives was t h e mother of his only daughter, Isabel.)
Robert Aguillon died Feb. 15, 1286, and Margaret, his 2nd wif e , survived him six years, and at her
death in 20th of Edward I, 1292, left his daughter Isabel he r h eir as to those lands which had been
assigned to her for her dowry. Isabel and Hugh Bardolf had a d a ughter,

ARTHUR E. PEMBER. There will never be any lack of interest in the stories of how the early settlers came to Kansas, what they brought with them, how they managed to live during the early years, and to what point of success and prosperity they brought their affairs. The following is a brief outline of the experiences of Mr. Arthur E. Pember, a retired rancher of Ness City, and one of the men who were in at the beginning of civilized things in that part of the state.

He came to Kansas in 1882 from Ringgold County, Iowa. Nearly four years were spent in Butler County. From there he came to Ness County, arriving in October, 1885, and on March 13, 1886, he settled on his claim. His homestead was located on the southeast quarter of section 17, township 20, range 24.

When he came to the county he brought two teams and sixteen head of cattle, besides a little cash. That was the equipment which his industry and good management had to employ as a capital. He lived on and proved up his homestead, and in time that became the basis of his subsequent large holdings of land in the county.

He realizes what modern luxuries mean because after coming to Kansas he and his family lived for a time in a sod house. That was the typical palace on the western prairies of the state, and no family was thought any the worse of because they lived in such a home. For his horses Mr. Pember set up a rude structure of frame timbers. For the first year he had to depend upon his cows and chickens, and he succeeded in making a crop in the same year. That year in fact was a time of special prosperity in that county. Mr. Pember had millet waist high absolutely without weeds, and his corn was surprisingly fine. In a number of ways he had to adapt himself to special needs and circumstances, and he cultivated with a home-made harrow, constructed out of fence posts. In that year and in subsequent years his hay crop was especially good. Later he engaged in grain raising, but stock has been his mainstay through all the years. Every year out of thirty he has spent in that county he has been able to cut some product from his farm. There was one notable exception. In the fall of 1893 he did not even hitch up to his mowing machine at all. But with the buffalo grass and a little mill feed which he bought he managed to winter his stock.

His first addition to the homestead was a tree claim. He proved up that and in a few years began buying adjacent lands. Some of this he acquired under mortgage sales and some he purchased from the entrymen. Mr. Pember has developed a ranch in Franklin Township consisting of thirty-seven quarter sections. It is divided into four separate farms, and each of his three sons occupy one of them, and all four represent very substantial improvements. Mr. Pember has a half section just west of Ness City, devoted to farming purposes and feed lots. As a stock man he has shipped from Ness City for more than twenty years, and even yet he is buying all kinds of stock for the market.

His own personal supervision was given to his farm and ranch until 1911, when he retired to Ness City. Some years before he had established a feeding barn in the town and this has been used for mules and horses. Mr. Pember has figured as one of the raisers of fine horses and cattle and has exhibited much of his stock at local fairs.

His own material affairs have not engrossed all his time and attention. He has joined with other progressive men in Ness City to advance business and civic organizations. He was one of the original stockholders of the Citizens State Bank and was a director in it and the Citizens National Bank until recently. For several years he was treasurer of the Ness County Agricultural Association. He was a councilman of Ness City, and for five years was one of the four dealers in coal.

On the whole he has made no special effort to mix in politics, though he is a true and stalwart republican and at different times has represented his party in state conventions. He was a delegate to the Wichita Convention which nominated Governor Hoch. Mr. Pember cast his first vote in 1880 for Mr. Garfield, and has never missed a presidential election. He is a member of the Methodist Church and at one time was a trustee of the church at Ness City. He belongs to the Ancient Order of United Workmen and is an entered apprentice in Masonry.

Arthur E. Pember was born in Courtland County New York, at the Town of Willett, March 29, 1858, a son of Sanford and Salome (Glover) Pember. His paternal grandfather was Parley Pember, who was born in Connecticut and was a farmer by occupation. The Glovers were Pennsylvania German people. Sanford Pember became a carpenter, though he lived most of his life on a farm. During the Civil war he tried to get into the Union army but was rejected on account of disability. In 1872 he moved out to Iowa, settling in Ringgold County, and lived there until the death of his wife, when he returned to Courtland County, New York, where he passed away. Arthur E. Pember was the oldest of his parents' children. His brother Irvin B. lives in Ness County; Eva is the wife of Ed Thomas of Elgin, Oregon; and Parley lives in Broome County, New York.

In Ringgold County, Iowa, February 22, 1876, several years before he started west for Kansas, Mr. Pember married Miss Rhoda Smith. Her father, John B. Smith, who was born in Now York State, became an early settler in Iowa, where he married Lydia Miner. Mrs. Pember was born in Freemont County, Iowa, December 18, 1857, the oldest of the children. Her sister Elizabeth is the wife of Charles Tarman, of Ness County; George lives in Ness County; Mrs. Lucy J. Pember in Kansas City; Lura is the widow of John Zickafoose of Coffee County, Kansas; Rose is the wife of H. L. Mellies, of Ness County; and her two youngest brothers are James and Friend Smith.

Mr. and Mrs. Pember have a family of children, all of whom are married and have established homes of their own. Irvin A., the oldest, lives on part of his father's ranch and is married to Minnie Koester and has two daughters, Oma May and Zelda. Pearl E. and Earl E. are twins. Earl married Lucy Cowles and has children, Glenn and Garnet. Pearl married Emma Koester and has a son Laverne and a daughter, Geneva.
