Pleasant Bybee, b.ca.1818, and Nancy his wife, b.ca.1824, both natives of Ohio, came to Indiana sometime prior to 1849.

The death notice for Pleasant Bybee reads: "Pleasant Bybee, an old and respected citizen of Newcastle township, was buried last Friday." -- Rochester Sentinel, Sat., Sept. 9, 1871. His will, dated August 28, and proved Sept. 11, 1871, leaves his Estate to his wife, Nancy Bybee, "for the support and maintenance of all my minor children until the youngest child shall arrive at the age of 18 years of age. . ." He names as his Executors, his "son, Cyrus Bybee and Nathan Bybee, my brother." --Jean C. Tombaugh, Fulton Co Ind Abstracts of Wills 1838-1899.
Nancy Bybee, widow of Pleasant Bybee, was living in Newcastle twp in 1880 at age 54 years, with five of her unmarried children: Cornelius, Sarah, Anna, Elmer and Melvin. -- Census 1880.

HAMLETT, Franklin C., 29th Regt Ind Vol, d. Oct 2(or 21?), 1862, in College
Hosp No 4, Nashville, Tenn, ae 46y-9m-22d
[Note: Franklin C., son of Thomas Hamlett, Sr. and Elizabeth, was born ca. 1816 in Ky. He married Elizabeth Meredith in Fulton Co Ind, Aug. 4, 1840, and they were of Newcastle twp in 1850 with one son, Thomas M. (7 yrs) who was probably the only child of Franklin C. & Elizabeth who lived to maturity. Franklin C. Hamlett purchased land in Newcastle twp (Twp 31N-Range 3E) Fulton Co Ind, recorded on Dec. 14, 1843 and on Sept 2, 1845. His name was in the Grand Jury list for March Term 1844. Franklin C. and Thomas M. Hamlet served as Pvts of Co. D 29 Regt in the Civil War. Franklin C. Hamlett's body was brought home for burial on December 26, 1862, and the reopening of his grave later, for ident., caused quite a furor and several editorials and letters to the editor of the Rochester Sentinel, March 7, 1863; April 4, 1863.
Thomas M. Hamlett, son of Franklin C. & Elizabeth (Meredith) Hamlett, was probably the Thomas M. Hamlet (ae 27) a householder of the town of Rochester, Fulton Co Ind., in 1870. His family included: Sarah S. (ae 20), Gray M. (ae 2), and Frank (ae 8 mos., b. Sept) --Census 1870.

The will of Thomas Hamlett, Sr., "of Fulton Co., Ind." dated March 26, 1846, and proved May 11, 1846, names his heirs: (sons) James Hamlett, Franklin C. Hamlett, Wm. H. H.

James Hamlett, mentioned often in the Commissioners Records between 1839 and 1845, perhaps is James the son of Thomas, Sr. -- Jean C. Tombaugh, Commissioners Record "A" 1836-1845. No other info found concerning James.
Franklin C., son of Thomas Hamlett, Sr., has been discussed on a previous page herein.
Two William Hamletts were householders in Newcastle twp, Fulton Co Ind, in 1870:
(1) William H. H., b. Apr 6, 1813 in Ky, married Sarah Schooler. -- Shirley Willard, Fulton Co Folks, Vol. 1., p. 188. This is the William H. H. believed to be the son of Thomas Hamlett, Sr. (2) The second William H. H. Hamlett also of Newcastle twp in 1870 was born ca.1816 in Ind. He was not located in any of the previous census records for Fulton Co Ind. This William H. H. Hamlett probably married twice. His second marriage was July 9, 1870 to Lucy, widow of Peter Bryant (of Newcastle twp in 1850). --Fulton Co M.R. Letters of Adm., Estate of Peter Bryant, were issued to David Nichols July 7, 1855. Fulton Co Ind Docket "A" 1838-1856, pp. 446-447. Lucy Bryant, widow, age 35, is listed as the householder in 1860 with her children: John 15, Lewis 13, Melissa 9 and Sarah 6. By 1870, Lucy and her dau., Melissa Bryant, were living in the household of William H. H. Hamlett. This family included five children: Robert N. (b.ca.1862), Florence C. (b.ca.1864), John E. (b.ca.1866), Alvin N. (b.ca.1867), William (b. Feb. 1870). Date of death and place of burial for this second William H. H. Hamlett are not known. He needs further

Bartley M. Hamlett, named in the will of Thomas Hamlett, Sr., was probably the Bartley M. Hamlett who came to Newcastle twp, Fulton Co, Ind., with his family in 1839, and erected on his farm the first blacksmith shop in the twp. -- Kingman Bros., Historical Atlas, Fulton Co Ind., 1883, p. 44. His name was not found in the list of householders of Indiana in 1840, however, although his family included at least four children at that time. --Census 1840. Bartley M. Hamlett (also spelled Hamlet) was born 1804 in Ky. He died between 1850 and 1860. His wife, Elizabeth (Jones) Hamlett, a widow in the Federal Census 1860 with seven children, was born in Va. ca. 1812.

John & Sarah A. Shelly were living in Kansas about 1870 to 1875 (see birth places of children), but must have returned to Fulton Co Ind within the next year, where he died. Because of the big difference in their ages, Sarah A. Hamlett could have been the second wife of John Shelly. (Fulton Co Ind Census 1880, Newc twp #99:100, "Sarah A. Shelly, widow")

However, Historical Atlas of Fulton Co Ind, by Kingman Bros, p. 53, indicates that he was b.December 6, 1813, in Northampton Co Penn, a son of John & Elizabeth (Brutzman) Packer. John Packer (b.November 22, 1790 Penn, son of a Revolutionary soldier; and d.February 19, 1849 Perry Co Ohio); located in Northampton Co Penn, and in 1833 removed to Perry Co Ohio; were parents of eight children, of whom Fredrick Packer was the first.
Fredrick Packer removed to Perry Co Ohio in 1833 with his parents, and was m. (1st) there in June 1836 to Miss Elizabeth Long (see above entry). Ten children were forn to them before her death in 1863. His (2nd) marriage was May 8, 1864 to Nancy Stockberger (Fulton Co M.R.), and she d. in 1870 (see next entry). His (3rd) marriage March 26, 1871 was to Sarah Canfield (Fulton Co M.R.). Sarah had previously been married to Jason Canfield and John Compton. (see previous pages)
Fredrick Packer (ae 42 yrs) and Elizabeth, his first wife, first appear in Fulton Co Ind in the 1860 Census with eight of their children (Richland twp, household #592:592). He and his 2nd wife, Nancy, and three children were included in the 1870 Census (Richland twp, household #150:150). In 1880, Fredrick Packer (widowed, age 66) was householder. His family included a son, George (ae 24); a dau, Martha Click (ae 39 and widowed); and a grand-dau, Ida Click (ae 11). Although

she did not die until 1891, Sarah (third wife of Fredrick Packer) was not included in his family in 1880. She was herself listed as Sarah Packer (ae 61) a householder of Newc twp (1880 census, Richland twp #179:179; ibid, Newc twp #17:17).

[Note: Henry Bowman was born in Ohio, and was a son of Henry Bowman (Sr) and Elizabeth. Henry Bowman, Sr., b.ca.1787 Penn, probably died sometime after 1860 but his death date & place of burial are not known to this compiler. Elizabeth, wife of Henry Bowman, Sr., was born in Maryland 1787, and probably died sometime after 1870. Her death date and burial place not known to this compiler. Henry Bowman, Sr., and his wife, Elizabeth, both ae 73, were first located in Fulton Co Ind in 1860 in the household of their son, Henry (Jr), and dau-in-law, Faith E. Bowman (Census 1860, Aubbee twp #843:843). By 1870, Elizabeth (ae 83) was "living with son" Henry (Jr). (Census 1870, Newc twp #216:216).
Henry Bowman (Jr), son of Henry Bowman (Sr) and Elizabeth, was a resident of Fulton Co Ind in 1860, Aubbee twp; 1870 & 1880, Newc twp. In 1860, the family of Henry (Jr) and his (1st) wife, Faith E., included: a dau, Mary M. (ae 2); Henry Bowman (Sr) and Elizabeth (both ae 73) parents of Henry (Jr); and Aaron & Louisa Bowman (married within the census year). Henry Bowman (Jr) was a "miller" of Aubbee twp. Henry Bowman (Jr) and his wife, Faith E., probably removed to Newc twp sometime during the latter part of the 1860's, since she was buried in this cemetery in 1867. However, A. L. (Aaron L.) Bowman, a miller (b.ca.1835 Ohio) and Mary (Louisa) Bowman, his wife (b.ca.1838 Maryland) remained in Aubbee twp where they were householders in 1870 (fam. #80:79) with children: John F. (b.ca.1861 Ind), William H. (b.ca.1863 Ind).
Henry Bowman (Jr) married (2nd) Bridget Solovan July 26, 1868 (Fulton Co M.R.). Bridget was born in Ireland 1853, and was probably the dau of Dennis and Mary Solovan (see Reichter cem herein). Henry Bowman (Jr), a miller, and his wife, Bridget, were residents of Newc twp (fam. #216:216), in 1870. Their family included two children: Mary (ae 12) who soon was to die, and John W. (ae 8). Also Elizabeth Bowman (ae 83, b.Maryland), mother of Henry Bowman (Jr), was with them.
Census 1880, Newc twp (fam. #69:70) reveals that Henry Bowman (Jr) & wife, Bridget, were living in the Village of Bloomingsburg (later called Talma) with their children: John W. (ae 18, his mother born in England), Aaron L. (ae 3, mother born Ireland), Charley B. (ae 2, mother born Ireland), and an infant son (ae 2mos, b.March, mother born Ireland). Also in this family were: Ellen Heighway, a widowed sis-in-law (ae 21), and Sarah Solovon, an unmarried sis-in-law (ae 15).
It is important to note that another family of a similar name located in Fulton Co Ind, in Wayne twp at an earlier date than did Henry Bowman, Sr. and his son. Henry Bauman (also spelled Bowman) and his son, Levi, took up land in Wayne twp in 1841 and 1842 (Early Tract Book, Fulton Co Ind). This Henry Bauman, b.Penn, September 26, 1791, d.October 10, 1849 and was bur in the Bauman cem, Wayne twp. His widow, Elizabeth, also b.Penn, November 19, 1797, d.December 4, 1862.

(2) Daniel, 1819-1862
[Note: Daniel Swinehart (also spelled Swihart) was born in Ohio. Historical Atlas, Fulton Co Ind, 1893, by Kingman Bros, pp.44-45 indicates that Daniel Swinehart was a resident of Newc twp in 1847-50; and that he was a member of St.Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church early in 1850. He appears first in Fulton Co Ind, in the 1860 census (Newc twp, #913:913) as Daniel Swihart (ae 38 b.Ohio), with his wife, Syrena (ae 29, b.Ohio), and four children: Levi (ae 12, b.Ohio), Layman (ae 9, b.Ind), George (ae 5, b.Ind) and Marion (a male, ae 2, b.Ind). A dau, Maude, was b.ca.1862 Ind. Maude (unmarried, ae 18), and her brother, Laman (called Hiram) ae 26 were living with Syrena (their mother) and two half-bros in Richland twp in 1880 (see following).
The parents of Daniel Swinehart have not yet been determined by this compiler. However, it is interesting to note that one Daniel Swinehart was head of a household in Holmes Co., Mac. twp, Ohio, in 1840 (see Index to 1840 Federal Population Census of Ohio, by Wilkens, Vol. 2, p. 576); one in Pickaway Co. Cir. twp, Ohio, and two in Portage Co., Suf. twp, Ohio (ibid, Vol. 3, p. 531); and one in Stark Co. Bet. twp, Ohio (ibid, Vol. 4, p. 489).
Syrena, wife of Daniel Swinehart, was born in Ohio and was a dau of Daniel & Sarah Saloma (Stockberger) Wagoner (see for further). Sometime after the death of Daniel in 1862, Syrena probably left Fulton Co for a time. She was not located in the 1870 census of Fulton Co. Her son, Hiram, however was included in the family of his uncle, Hiram Wagoner of Aubbe twp in that record.
Syrena (Wagoner) Swinehart next married Peter Good, March 4, 1865. The record spells her name "Serena Swihart" (Fulton Co M.R.). Peter Good does not appear in any of the Fulton Co Ind Census records. He was probably a resident of Kosciusko County. He was born in 1817 in Penn., and died February 12, 1878, aged 60y-10m-15d; bur Nichols cem, Kosc Co Ind. His previous wife, Nancy (d.January 22, 1864, ae 47y-9m-21d) was bur beside him. Peter & Nancy Good had a dau, Nancy, d.March 1868 ae 19y-11m-1d, bur in the Nichols cem, Kosc Co Ind.
By 1880, Syrena (Wagoner) Swinehart Good (a widow, ae 47) was again a resident of Fulton Co Ind, in Richland twp. Two sons: Charles Frank (14 yrs) and Ivy Newton (ae 11), children by Peter Good, her 2nd husband; Maude Swinehart (an unmarried dau, ae 18); Hiram Swinehart (ae 26), and his wife Eldora (ae 17), were all living in Syrena's household in 1880 (Census 1880, Fulton Co Ind, Richland twp, Fam. #169:169).
Syrena Good m. (3rd), February 7, 1889, to Peter C. Dumbauld, widower (Fulton Co M.R.). She was his third wife (see for further).
Laman (called Hiram in 1880 census), son of Daniel and Syrena Swinehart, was b.1852 and m.Eldora Mechling (see for further).

[Note: James W. Love, b.Ind in 1835, was a son of James N. and Sarah (McQueen) Love (see for further).
James W. and Ellen resided in Newc twp Fulton Co Ind(Census, 1860, fam #966:966; Census 1870, fam #106:107).

LOVE, Sarah, wife of James N., d. Feb 19, 1855, ae 53y
[Note: Sarah McQueen was probably the (1st) wife of James N. Love. She was born in Ky in 1802.
James N. Love was b.Virginia in 1796, but his parents are not known to this compiler. His (2nd) marriage was to Anna Spencer, October 11, 1855 (Fulton Co M.R.). She was probably the same Anna Spencer (ae 50, b.Ohio) who lived in the household of Ambrose & Mary Meredith in 1850 (Census, Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp, fam. #92:92).
The (3rd) wife of James N. Love was Mary Sperry whom he m.April 16, 1857 (Fulton Co M.R.). Mary (also known as Polly) was b.ca.1810-12 in Ky, and believed to have married (1st) David McFall who d.ca.1842. Richard Smock was named admr. of his estate December 28, 1842, and November 13, 1843 Mary McFall was guardian of the minor heirs of David McFall. Guardianship Index informs us that the children were: William A. McFall, Arthur McFall & David McFall, and that the guardianship was opened November 1843 and Final Report filed May 1848 (Fulton Co Ind Probate Docket "A" 1838-1856, by Jean C. & Wendell C. Tombaugh; Fulton Co Guardianship Index Book "A", p. 52). Austin (William A.) McFall, one of the three children of David and Mary McFall, was a Pvt of Co F, 87 Ind Regt (Historical Atlas, Fulton Co Ind, 1883, by Kingman Bros, p. 16). There is a record of marriage of Austin McFall to Sarah M. Lawhead, September 14, 1859 (Fulton Co M.R.) Also Rochester Sentinel, Nov. 28, 1863 has the following: "Married on Sunday evening Nov. 8, 1863, at Warsaw, Ind., by Rev. Mr. Wilson, Mr. Austin McFall formerly of Rochester, and Miss Mollie Koontz, of Peru, Ind."
Mary (-----) McFall (called Polly) next married Samuel G. Sperry, August 1, 1846 (Fulton Co M.R.). Samuel G. Sperry, very early settler of Rochester twp, Fulton Co Ind, was b.Virginia ca.1788, and m. (1st) Rachel Washburn, who d.1845.(see Citizens cem, Rochester twp, Fulton Co Ind) Two children were born to Samuel G. and Mary Sperry: Franklin and Windfield Scott Sperry. In 1850, Mary and children Austin McFall, David McFall, Franklin Sperry and Windfield S. Sperry, were in the household of Samuel Sperry in Rochester twp (census 1850, Roch twp, fam. #210:210). During the May Term of Court, 1853, Mary Sperry sued Samuel G. Sperry for divorce. " . . . divorce granted and custody of Franklin Scott Sperry to remain with complt until further order of Court." (Fulton Circuit Court, Bench Docket 1845-1859, May Term, 1853, #40).
Mary (-----) McFall Sperry next married James N. Love, 1857 (see above). During April Term of Court 1860, Mary Love -vs- James Love, Mary filed a complaint for order to sell the defendant's property for her support. It was a jury trial, and the verdict was for the plff, $20 annually "during abandonment & existence of the relation of husband and wife." (Fulton Co Ind Bench Docket "B" 1860-1866). During August Term of Court 1860, #38, James N. Love -vs- Mary Love, the following entry was made: "Complt for divorce. Filed August 17, 1860. Divorce granted." (Fulton Co Ind, Bench Docket "B" 1860-1868). A final record on Mary Love, widow ae 50, finds her living in Rochester city in 1860, with her children: David McFall (16), Franklin Sperry (11) and Scott Sperry (8) (census 1860, Fulton Co Ind, Rochester city, fam. #1124:1127).
James N. Love and his first wife, Sarah (McQueen) Love were residents of Newc twp, Fulton Co Ind in 1850 (see census, fam. #78:78) with five children: Hamilton H., James, Joseph A., Smith I., and Finnetta. James N. Love was not found in Fulton Co Ind in the 1860 census.

[Note: Abraham Kesler (also spelled Kessler) was b.Ohio 1839, a son of Peter (1808-1875) and Eliza (Windbigler) Kesler (see for further). He married Finethy M. Love (see previous page) and first appeared in Fulton Co Ind census records in 1870 (Newc twp, fam. #149:150) with his wife, Fynetty & six children all born in Ind. The next household on that census page (fam. #150:151) was that of his parents, Peter & Eliza Kessler.
Children of Abraham & Finethy M. Kesler: (1) James F., b.1859 Ind, m. Elizabeth A. "Adda" Jenkins (see for further); (2) Peter, b.1861 Ind, m. Mary E.

(1) Jesse, d. Nov 30, 1879, ae 82y-9m-17d
(2) Ann, d. Dec 1, 1850, ae 51y-10m
[Note: Jesse Emmons was b.Virginia or Penn, 1797. He & his wife, Ann, were residents of Newc twp in 1850 with six children (all b.Ind) (Census 1850, Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp, fam. #52:52).
After Ann died, he next married Margaret Sanders, May 22, 1851 (Fulton Co M.R.). Margaret was b.ca.1802, and was the widow of John Sanders who d. 1850 (see for further). Jesse Emmons (ae 64) and wife, Margaret (ae 60), were housholders in the Census 1860, with a son, Jesse (Fulton Co, Newc twp, fam. #971:971). They were residents of the same county and twp, in 1870 (fam. #154:155). That year, their son Jesse B., their dau-in-law Calista A., and two gr-children: Maryanna (5) and Jesse S. W. (2) were with them.
Margaret's death date and burial place are not known to this compiler. However, the will of Jesse Emmons which was dated July 24, 1866, and proved December 4, 1879, reads: " . . . to my son, Jesse Brown Emmons . . . from and after the decease of my beloved wife, Margaret Emmons . . ." (Fulton Co Ind, Abstracts of Wills 1838-1899, by Jean C. Tombaugh)
All of the children of Jesse Emmons, known to this compiler, were b.Ind, and only the youngest was born in Fulton County. Very few householders with the Emmon-Emmonds-Emmons name were in Indiana in 1820, and only one Jesse Emmonds. He was 16-25 years (b.1795-1804), and was living in Jackson County with a fem. 10-15 (b.1805-1810) & a male under 10 years (b.1810-1820) (1820 Federal Census for Indiana, by Heiss, p.0126). Again, in 1840, only one Jesse Emmons was found in Indiana. He was a resident of Bartholomew County, and was probably the same Jesse Emmons b.1797 who settled in Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp in 1841 (Index, 1840 Federal Census, Indiana, by Indiana Historical Society, p. 102; Historical Atlas, Fulton Co Ind., by Kingman Bros, 1883, p. 44).
Children of Jesse & Ann Emmons, of whom there is knowledge, include: (1) William, b.1828, m.(1st) Sarah A. Reed, m.(2nd) Maria Sanns (see for further); (2) Martilda, b.ca.1832, m.Israel Dille October 4, 1855 (Fulton Co M.R.), residents of Newc twp in 1860 with a son, Asa J. ae 2 yrs (Census 1860, Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp, fam. #987:987); (3) George, b.ca.1834, m. Sarah Ann Hege December 7, 1856 (Fulton Co M.R.), were residents of Newc twp in 1860 with a dau, Elzora O., ae 1 yr (Census 1860, Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp, fam. #930:930); (4) Amanda, b.1834, m.Isaac J. Meredith (see for further); (5) Cassa Ann "Catharine", b.ca.1839, m.George W. Hall, April 26, 1857 (Fulton Co M.R.), were residents of Newc twp in 1860 where George W. Hall was a blacksmith, with one dau, Romanda, age 1 year. In the February Term of Court 1867 (#20), Cassey A. Hall filed suit for divorce from George W. Hall, December 7, 1866 (Fulton Co Ind, Bench Docket "B", 1860-1868, Civil Court); (6) Jesse Brown Emmons, the youngest child, b.ca.1842, and his wife, Calista A. and two children Maryanna (ae 5) and Jesse S. W. (ae 2), were living with Jesse & Margaret Emmons in 1870 (Census 1870, Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp, fam. #154:155). By 1880, Jesse Brown Emmons and his wife and children: Margaret (ae 15), Jesse William (ae 12) and Ida Etta (ae 8) were in their own home (Census 1880 Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp, fam. #249:254).]
EMMONS, Ann, dau of F. & L., d. June 12, 1840 (no age or b.d.)

EMMONS, Infant son of F. & L., d. 1844

EMMONS, Lucinda, wife of F., d. Dec 10, 1845, ae 29y-11m-23d
[Note: Lucinda Chamberlain was probably the second wife of Finley Emmons, whom he married January 4, 1844 (Fulton Co M.R.). There appears to be an error in either the info on her grave marker, or in the reading of it. If she died in 1845 at the age given on the marker, she would have been born in 1816 and eight years older than her husband, Finley Emmons. Also, she couldn't have been included in the 1850 Federal Census with Finley - but she was. That record indicates that she was born in New York and was 23 years old (b.ca.1827). It is the opinion of this compiler that the last two numbers in the year of her death were reversed and should have been 1854 instead of 1845, making the year of her birth 1825. (Census 1850, Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp, fam. #7:7).
Finley & Lucinda Emmons were parents of three known children: (1) an infant son, d.1844 (see above entry); (2) Mason, 1845-1880 (see Reichter cem herein); (3) Orlando 1848-1928, m. Harriet E. Hayes, 1878 (Fulton Co M.R.; also Rochester I.O.O.F. cem)

[Note: Elizabeth M. was b.1837 Ind, land was a dau of Samuel J. & Lucy Hege of Newc twp (see for further).
Elizabeth M. Hege was probably the third wife of Finley Emmons, whom he m.March 15, 1855 (Fulton Co M.R.). Elizabeth's sister, Sarah Ann, m. George Emmons, a son of Jesse and Ann Emmons (see previous page).
Finley and Elizabeth M. Emmons lived in Newc twp in 1860 with their children: Mason, Orlando & George. Also in their household were: Nathan Hegge (ae 13) probably of bro. of Elizabeth, and a William Hegge (ae 22) relationship unkn (Census 1860, Fulton Co Ind, Newc twp, fam. #907:907).
Only two children known to have been born to Finley and his third wife, Elizabeth M. (Hege) Emmons: (1) Samuel J., b. & d.1856 (see above); (2) George N., b.1858, m. Sarah A. Brumm 1880 (see Rochester I.O.O.F. cem; also prior pages herein).
Finley Emmons married a fourth time, between 1865 and 1867, to Margaret, said to be Margaret Black in her daughter Della's marriage record. Black may have been a maiden name or the name of a previous or subsequent husband. Adding further confusion, is the fact that an Elizabeth Langne, widow ae 69, and mother-in-law, was visiting in the household of Finley and his fourth wife, Margaret, in 1880. Finley and Margaret were residents of Fulton Co Ind in 1870, with children: Mason (ae 22, an invalid), Orlando (ae 21), George (ae 12), Elizabeth (ae 3) and Arretta (11mo, b.June) (see Census, Fulton Co Ind, 1870, Newc twp, fam. #21:20; and 1880, Richland twp, fam. #184:184).
The children of Finley and Margaret Emmons were: (1) Elizabeth (also called Lizzie & Libby), b.1867, m.John W. Felts, 1884 (see Rochester I.O.O.F. cem); (2) Loureta, 1869-1872 (see Reichter cem); (3) Hugh(?), 1871-1872 (ibid); (4) Laura May, b.ca.1873; (5) Elmore (1875-1875) (ibid); (6) Eldora, 1875-1895 (ibid); (7) Marion, 1877-1877 (ibid); (8) Della, b.ca.1878, m.Leroy Gordon at Tiosa, October 27, 1894 (Fulton Co Ind Marriage Application Bk 1892-1898: "Della, dau of Finley Emmons and Margaret Black").
There was yet a fifth marriage for Finley Emmons, October 27, 1881, to Eliza Coblentz (Fulton Co M.R.). She was the widow of Daniel Coblentz of Richland twp, who d.February 15, 1881, ae 34yr-3mo-8da. (see Citizens Cem, Richland Center, Richland twp, Fulton Co Ind). The marriage application of her son, Hugh Finley Emmons, reveals that Eliza's maiden name was Grant. The two children of Finley and Eliza (Grant) Coblentz Emmons were: (1) Margaret "Maggie", b.ca.1882; (2) Hugh Finley, b.ca.1883, Rochester, Ind., m. Ethel Lucille Castle, April 18, 1903 (Fulton Co Ind Marriage Application Bk 1901-1904).
All efforts to locate the burial place of Finley Emmons have failed, but he d. at Rochester, ae 77, October 19, 1899 (Fulton Co Ind Death Records). His will, dated April 7, 1888, adm. to probate October 28, 1899, indicates that Eliza Emmons, widow of Finley Emmons accepted the provision

made for her; names heirs; to Orlando Emmons, (son) George Emmons, (dau) Lizzie Felts, (daus) Lowrey May Emmons, Eldora Emmons, Della Emmons and Margaret Emmons, (son) Hugh Finley Emmons. He expresses "a loving confidence in my wife and do hereby appoint her guardian of all my minor children . . ." Codicil No.3, dated November 5, 1894, makes the following changes "to my daughters Lowry May Emmons, Della Emmons (now Della Gordon) . . . and my son Hughy Emmons . . ." Codicil No.4, dated March 26, 1895, states "Since the execution of Codicil No.3 dated November 5, 1894, my daughter Eldora Emmons has departed this life and I now will . . ."

No will was found for Jeremiah J. Whaley. However, Geo.

There is no doubt that Jeremiah J. Whaley married at least twice. The will of his dau, Nancy E., names her sisters, half-sisters and half-bro. The name of his first wife is not known to this compiler, but the birthplaces of their children suggest that they probably were married in New york, then removed to Penn. Jeremiah J. Whaley appears to have returned to New York for his second wife, Almire, who was much younger than he, for the next two children were born in New York. Census records indicate that Almira was born in New York, but her parents are not known to this compiler. Jeremiah & Almira probably removed to Indiana between 1852 and 1855 where three more children were born.

The will of William Reed, dated December 9, 1853, reads " . . . to Margaret Wright, my eldest daughter and wife of James Wright . . ." (Fulton Co Ind, Will Book "A", p. 144-147)

James & Margaret Wright and family lived in Newc twp at the time of the 1850 and 1860 census. At the time the 1870 census was taken, Margaret, widow of James was a householder of the same twp. The only other person in her household was Alwilda Mann, ae 15, an orphan.
The will of James Wright, dated May 17, 1867, proven June 1, 1870 in Fulton co Ind, names his wife Margaret Wright, and "my two children, Jane Perschbaucher and Samuel Wright." Another heir was Alwilda Mann "a child who is now living with me . . . said sum to be paid when said Alwilda shall be married or when she shall attain the age of 21 years & to be paid only in case she shall continue to live in my family and be a dutiful upright girl." (Fulton Co Ind, Will Bk "B" pp.21-24).
A news item from Rochester Sentinel, Sat., Aug. 2, 1873 reveals that Alwilda was left an orphan at an early age by the death of her father, P. A. Mann, and she became a ward of the Masonic fraternity of Rochester. She was placed by them in charge of "Mrs. James Wright, a widow woman living in Richland twp who adopted her into the family as an own child." She lived with this family for at least ten years before marrying about 1873, Cyrus, son of Lawrence McCarter, who lived three miles northeast from town.

Census records reveal that Jeremiah Washburn was a resident of Fulton Co Ind as early as 1840. By 1850, he was a resident of Liberty twp, Fulton Co Ind, and that census indicates also that he was b.Kentucky ca.1786. His family included: Nancy b.Ohio ca.1801; Jeremiah, Jr., 22; Mary J., 16; Isaac, 14; David, 11; Martha A., 9 (all children b.Ind). Mary A.

Isaac Culver was b.New York in 1800; his wife, Permelia, was b.Maine in 1799. Isaac & Permelia were householders of Newc twp in the Census of 1850, 1860 and 1870. He was a farmer.

Rei[ch]ter grave yard, between Bloomingsburg and Rochester, to the memory of Isaac Culver. The design is entirely original. The die is panel work, with spiral fluted columns, and is finished in crochet work, which is at once odd and beautiful. The spire is an octagon shaft surmounted with octagon cap and crochet final. The workmanship is of the very highest type . . . The marble for this monument was from the celebrated quarries of Sheldon & Slawson, West Rutland, Vermond.

John Tipton and his children all appear to have left Fulton Co Ind and were not in the 1860 census.
The exact date of the death of John Tipton is not known to this compiler. However, it had to have been sometime between 1862 (date of their marriage) and 1870, when Amanda Tipton ae 38 appears as a Newc twp householder in the census. Her family included: Sarah M. Scott, 16 Ohio; Phillip S. (Schuyler) Tipton 4 Ind; Mary A. Tipton, 14 Ind.

Amanda (-----) Scott Tipton married a (3rd) time, April 17, 1871, to Samuel P. Hodges (Fulton Co M.R.). He was a widower whose wife had d. in 1870.

Elizabeth, wife of Washington Smith, was b.1819 in Darke Co Ohio, a dau of James P. & Jane Edwards (of Marshall Co Ind 1840 to 1876).
James P. Edwards, b.January 14, 1793 Newberry Co, So.Car, was a son of David & Mary (Patty) Edwards. James P. Edwards is said to have been bur. in Reichter cem, but was not located by this compiler. A letter dated May 8, 1977, from Mrs. Marie Edwards Quisenberry, Carlsbad, California, to this compiler, states the following: "In 1965 Elva Longbrake of Claypool (also a gr-gr-granddau of James P. Edwards as I Am) visited the Reichter Cemetery and found his grave. She believes his wife Jane to be buried next to him but there was no marker. 3 years ago she returned to the cemetery and the marker was gone. She and her husband hunted all over for it to no avail." Mrs. Quisenberry is a descendant of James P. Edwards, through his son David. James P. Edwards came to Indiana ca.1831, and resided in Marshall Co from 1840 to 1876. His wife, Jane, was a native of Tennessee.

Although it is generally known that there was once a Montgomery family grave yard, evidence of it was not found by these compilers in 1975. The site is on private ground, and all we can give at this time is the general location.
It is located one-half mile northeast of 350E, on the east side of SR25, approximately four miles northeast of Rochester, on the Lachcik farm, which is between the J. D. Alspach & J. H. Herrel farms.
Manitou Chapter DAR, Genealogical Survey, Fulton Co Ind Cemeteries, 1935, reports that it was an abandoned Montgomery family cemetery, and that there were no markers, except one [the fourth entry below] which was down and in very bad condition. It was duly recorded, and was said to be set apart from the Herrell farm, and not now discernable from the road, although it was lying parallel with the highway.
The report further states that the following three names were furnished by Mr. J. D. Alspach, no dates being available)
