Williams is a surname on my mother's side of the family.

I'm starting with Jesse, because he's the first in the line for whom I have documented and reliable information.

And I'm kind of impressed with Jesse - he served in the Revolutionary War, and lived to the ripe old age of 84, when he died after being kicked in the head by a horse he was shoeing...

Well, everything, if you're talking about spelling...

There's an interesting story in our Herrington family about the spelling of the surname.

When Jasper Monroe Herrington married my great grandmother, Julia Ann (Callaway) McBrayer, he - like she - had already been married before and widowed.

Jasper's son by his second wife, Mary Ann Cothran, was John Richard Herrington. Dick, as he was called, was only 3 when Jasper and Julia married, and she already had 7 kids by Robert McBrayer.

I don't know how they decided there was no room for Dick Herrington in the tiny little house, but they did. (I mean, there wasn't room for all those kids, which combined, numbered 11, but how did they pick Dick to be the odd one out?) Jasper and Julia went on to have 6 children of their own. In the 1910 census, Richard was living with them, but not in 1920.

He went to live with a couple named John and Nora Johnson in Hot Spring County - he is shown there in the 1920 census as a foster son.

John Johnson told Dick that the RIGHT way to spell Herrington was with an "a," i.e., Harrington. So Dick did.

He was the only one of Jasper's descendants to spell the surname that way. I had a heckuva time finding his grave, but finally did. He's buried in Rest Haven Memorial Gardens in Arkadelphia.

For so many years, she was Elizabeth MNU.

Then she became Elizabeth Harris, born about 1830 in Pennsylvania.   She married Nathaniel Foster Chapin about 1853. 


Then, one of my Chapin cousins found me, and the focus immediately narrowed with wonderful details in three handwritten pages.

They were enough for me to find her parents, and several of her siblings.

She was my third great grandmother.


She was Elizabeth Harris, born on 19 Nov 1831 in Pennsylvania, to James Elisha Harris and Sally Miller.  She died in Fort Scott, Bourbon County, KS on 30 Oct 1887.

She had at least 8 or 9 younger siblings.

The ones I have documented (thanks to those three handwritten pages) are:
  • Lyman Harris, born 9/1837 in PA. Married Catharine Hoover on 4 Jul 1868;
  • Mary Harris, born 1839 in Pennsylvania;
  • John Harris, born 1841 in Pennsylvania;
  • Emma (Emily) Harris, born 1843 in Pennsylvania;
  • Henry Orten "Ort" Harris, born 9 Aug 1846 in Ridgebury, Bradford Co., PA. Married Mary Elizabeth Green on 30 Oct 1873 in Elmira, Chemung Co., NY;
  • Elisha Alden Harris, born 1847 in Ridgebury, Bradford Co., PA;
  • Sarah Harris, born 1851 in Ridgebury, Bradford Co., PA;
  • Josephine Harris, born 1854 in Ridgebury, Bradford Co., PA; and
  • James Harris. (E C Shephard's handwritten notes at page 3, in private collection.)


James Elisha Harris must have died before the 1860 census. In 1860, Sally Miller Harris was living with her children Lyman, John, Alden, Sarah and Josephine in Ridgebury, Bradford Co., PA.

In the 1870 census, Sally was living in Ridgebury, Bradford Co., PA. Her son Henry, daughter Josephine, and a granddaughter named Ella Harris (born in 1864), were living with her.

I have been unable to find Sally Harris after the 1870 census, and still have a lot of work to do to find spouses and dates of death for many of Elizabeth Harris Chapin's siblings.

I know that Elizabeth died on 30 Oct 1887, and when I get my recently ordered cemetery transcription book, I believe I will find where she is buried.

But those three little handwritten pages flung the door wide open...

There supposedly is a book about three Brannon brothers who came to the United States from Ireland. One of them was George. The book is said to document George's marriage to a Cherokee woman named Alkerny, meaning "Acorn Eyes."

I haven't seen the book, nor can I find the entire title of it. (Everyone just keeps writing that it's the book about the Brannons.) People who say they have knowledge of copies of it state that it was published in 1960 by the Lincoln, AR press.

The elusive book supposedly also states that the Brannons moved to Tennessee after the War of 1812. Since John was born in Tennessee in 1808, I have to wonder if someone has mixed up their Brannons.

So I don't know about the three brothers from Ireland. But I do know about John Brannon, born 15 Sep 1808, in Tennessee - probably Monroe County. His father was George Edward Brannon.


John Brannon married Nancy Webb, daughter of Judge Larkin Webb and his wife Sarah Bray, in 1829 in Monroe County. Sometime between the 1850 and 1860 censuses, John Brannon "removed" his family to northwest Arkansas, to Washington County.

John and Nancy had two sons, Benjamin (born 25 Apr 1830) and James L (born 26 Jun 1835).

Although the two brothers had no other siblings, when they married and began raising their own families in Benton County, AR, together they gave their parents 18 grandchildren.



Both brothers served in the Civil War, along with their father, fighting for the Union in the 1st Arkansas Cavalry. By 23 Nov 1863, James Brannon was discharged from service due to deafness and lung problems caused by the war. He was 28 years old.

James returned home to northwest Arkansas to his wife, Nancy Ann Philpott, and their children. Prior to his service in the war, he and Nancy had three children - John William, Benjamin, and Taylor Curtis Brannon. Between 1867 and 1871, they added four more children to the family - Margaret, James Munsey, Levada M and Floyd Philpott Brannon.

The more I study my extended family's migration to Pope County, AR from Lawrence County, TN in 1838, the more impressed I am.

A whole bunch of people made that trip. Including the Stricklands.

The Strickland family patriarch, Zacariah, was 68 years old. His wife, Elizabeth Hamilton, was a spry 58. Zacariah died in 1840, two years after their arrival. Elizabeth died in 1851.

All but one of the couple's 7 adult children (that I have accounted for) made the trip with spouses and young children in tow. Archibald Strickland and his wife, Margaret Foster, stayed in Tennessee.

They came in ox drawn wagons, with many of the younger adults and children walking a good portion of the way. They crossed the Mississippi River, and I have not yet documented a drowning.

381 miles.

I am in awe.

I imagine the surname McBrayer to have Scottish or Irish origins. I have only traced my McBrayers back to Cumberland Co., PA in 1764. William McBrayer, born in Cumberland County, married in 1788 in Rutherford Co., NC to Elizabeth Martin.

For the next three generations, McBrayers farmed the land of several North Carolina counties until around 1868, when Eli Wellington McBrayer and his younger brother Tilman (sons of Tilman W McBrayer and Elizabeth Amelia Bridges), removed to the fertile farmland of Clark County, AR and began farming there. In 1877, Tilman moved on to neighboring Pike County, AR.

Eli stayed put. On 8 Nov 1870, he married Harriet "Hattie" K Thornton, and the couple had three children with another on the way when brother Tilman moved on.

The first of those three children was a son - Robert Bruce McBrayer, born 10 Oct 1871, in Clark County. Robert was the first husband of my great grandmother, Julia Ann Callaway.

And although Robert is not related to me by blood, he was still family. As far as I know, McBrayer kids were just as much the kids of Jasper Monroe Herrington as Jasper's kids were Julia Ann Callaway's when they blended their families in 1907. And then went on to have six more.

Robert's parents were well-respected in their little Clark County community called DeGray.

Eli Wellington McBrayer and Hattie K Thornton had 11 children that I have been able to document. Eli was a leader in their church, DeGray Baptist (formerly Bethel Union Baptist). At least four of those children died before they reached the age of 20. DeGray Baptist Church Cemetery is the resting place of Eli, Hattie, and many of their descendants.

Among the photos I got on my recent successful visit to see my aunt was this one of Mary C (Dunn) Callaway Williams, and Hattie K (Thornton) McBrayer. According to the writing on the back, it was taken in the late 1800s.

Photobucket


This would have been a photo cherished by my great-grandmother Julia Ann Callaway McBrayer Herrington.

Her mother and her first mother-in-law, who surely had known each other for years. They were contemporaries and only born two years apart, Hattie being the younger. If the photo is from the late 1800s, then Robert McBrayer was still alive at the time it was taken. (He died in 1905.)

I think there may be a possibility that the names of the women on the photo were reversed. My aunt wrote that Hattie was on the left, and Mary on the right.

My cousin and I zoomed the photo on my laptop and compared it to the 3 known photos of Mary Dunn in my possession. (Took those suckers right off the wall, we did.) We believe Mary is the woman on the left.

And we have no reason to doubt that the women in the photo, regardless of their position, are Mary and Hattie.


I. Love. This.

Verna McBrayer Feimster


Verna was the daughter of Robert McBrayer and Julia Ann Callaway. Born on 5 Sep 1900, she was sixth of the eight children. She married William A "Bill" Feminster on 21 Jun 1928.

So I figure this was Verna's single gal, flapper look - before she married.


Most of Eli and Harriet's children stayed in and around Clark County all their lives.

So did most of their grandchildren, although two of Robert and Julia's sons moved to Texas (Larkin and Charlie).

That's still a long way from Scotland or Ireland...

A little late posting this entry, since Saturday is winding down...

The Lensing family was headed by German Catholic immigrants to this country. Their arrival in the 1880s was likely due, at least in part, to a concerted "outreach" effort in 1877 by the Little Rock and Fort Smith Railroad to recuit families such as theirs to western Arkansas.

I also think - rightly or wrongly - a big part of their reason for coming was what we call the American dream.

Henry (Heinrich) Lensing was born on 12 Feb 1836 in Klaster, Burla, Westfalen, Germany. He came to Arkansas with his first wife, Maria Anna Roessing, who died in 1881 in Logan County. This information fits the responses to the United State census that Henry gave in 1900, when he said the year of his immigration was 1880. Henry and Maria Anna had at least one daughter about whom I have documentation. She was Anna Marie Christina E Lensing, born 2 Feb 1872 in Borken, Prussia. She married Henry Duelmer.

By the time Henry answered the 1900 census enumerator's questions, he had remarried to Christine Duelmer in 1884, and the couple had six children. (I have been able to document eight children total for Henry and Christine - if someone else has more, please let me know.)
Christine Duelmer was born on 20 Jun 1866 in Westphalia, Prussia.

Christine's family had also immigrated from Germany to Logan County. In the 1900 census, Christine Lensing's year of immigration was 1884. She came with her parents, Josef Duelmer and Maria Catherina Belker, on the ship Rhein on 13 Aug 1884. Port of departure was Bremen.

Children of Henry and Christine were:
  • Alois Lensing was born on 9 Oct 1885 in Logan Co., AR. He died on 18 Aug 1969 in Logan Co., AR. He was buried in Saint Scholastica Cemetery, New Blaine, Logan Co., AR.
  • Caspar Lensing was born on 6 Jan 1888 in Logan Co., AR. He died on 8 May 1936 in Logan Co., AR. He was buried in Saint Ignatius Cemetery, Scranton, Logan Co., AR. He married Anna C Heim, daughter of George Michal Heim and Elizabeth L "Lizzie" Raible on 5 Sep 1911 in Logan Co., AR. Anna was born on 4 Apr 1892 in Logan Co., AR. She died on 18 May 1984 in Logan Co., AR. She was buried in Saint Ignatius Cemetery, Scranton, Logan Co., AR.
  • Herman Benedict Lensing was born on 21 Mar 1890 in Logan Co., AR. He died on 4 Nov 1967 in New Blaine, Logan Co., AR. He was buried in Saint Scholastica Cemetery, New Blaine, Logan Co., AR. He married Anna Schulte. Anna was born on 4 Feb 1893. She died on 4 Jul 1959 in Logan Co., AR. She was buried in Saint Scholastica Cemetery, New Blaine, Logan Co., AR.
  • Henry Lensing was born on 30 Sep 1892 in Logan Co., AR. He died on 23 Apr 1973 in Logan Co., AR. He was buried in Saint Scholastica Cemetery, New Blaine, Logan Co., AR. He married Ida Engel on 15 Feb 1916. Ida was born on 11 Nov 1896. She died on 22 Jun 1961 in Logan Co., AR. She was buried in Saint Scholastica Cemetery, New Blaine, Logan Co., AR.
  • Tresia (Thressa) Lensing was born in Feb 1895 in Logan Co., AR.
  • Rosa Lensing was born in Feb 1898 in Logan Co., AR.
  • Joseph Lensing was was born on 10 Oct 1901 in Logan Co., AR. He died on 18 Jul 1977 in Logan Co., AR. He was buried in Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cemetery, Morrison Bluff, Logan Co., AR. He married Mary N Anhalt. Mary was born on 2 Apr 1903. She died on 30 Nov 1977 in Logan Co., AR. She was buried in Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cemetery, Morrison Bluff, Logan Co., AR.
  • Anna Lensing was born on 21 Feb 1905 in Logan Co., AR. She died on 29 Nov 1928 in Logan Co., AR. She was buried in Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cemetery, Morrison Bluff, Logan Co., AR. She married Henry Joseph Wewers, son of John Raesfeld Wewers and Theresa Raible. Henry was born on 21 Mar 1895. He died on 11 Oct 1951 in Logan Co., AR. He was buried in Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cemetery, Morrison Bluff, Logan Co., AR.
I'd be interested in finding out what happened to two of the Lensing sisters, Thressa and Rosa, after about 1920.  If other Lensing or Logan County researchers know, please comment.

ETA on 4 Nov 2013: 
A comment submitted to me via email by Simone Steiner said: As to Henry Lensing you mentioned in your article that he was born in "Klaster, Burla". I assume that this is "Kloster Burlo" (Burlo monastery), which is part of the village of Burlo, which again belongs to the city of Borken. In the past, there was a Gross Burlo (big Burlo) and Klein Burlo (small Burlo).

Some quick search on Google showed that from 1724 the Burlo monastery was the liege of the Lensing farm. Lensing might also be spelled Lensingh or Lensink. To find more information about the family you might also search for "lensing borkenwirthe". Borkenwirthe is the name of the neighborhood.

Also the surname Roessing (Rößing) already existed in Borken in 1498 spelled Rosinck.


Some good information to have...

The Baldings in my family came originally from New York, but made a stop to beget several generations in Vigo County, IN before coming to Arkansas.

James Henry Balding was born on 11 Jul 1841 in Sunfish, Pike Co., OH to Henry Balding and Hannah Morrell. I think Hannah was at least partly responsible for that leg of the Balding family coming to Arkansas, because Morrells came too, including her younger brother, John Clement (known as J C) Morrell.

In any event, after Henry Balding's death in 1843 in Vigo Co., IN, I found Hannah in the 1850 census, living with James Henry (her youngest child) and her younger brother, John and his wife and young son, in Memphis, Shelby County, TN.

By September 1854, the whole clan had settled in Des Arc, Prairie Co., AR, and J C Morrell had established and was editor of the Des Arc Citizen, a local newspaper that served the area until at least 1866.

James Henry Balding served in the Civil War, as a musician in the 15th Regiment, Arkansas Infantry (Josey's). On 6 Aug 1862, by order of Brig General Cleburne, he was detailed to Polk's Brigade Band. He mustered out of Granbury's Texas Brigade (Confederate) in accordance with terms set out in a Military Covention between Gen Joseph E Johnston and Maj Gen W T Sherman, entered into on 26 Apr 1865. He was paroled at Greensboro, NC. He came back home to Prairie Co., AR.

On 26 May 1868, James Henry Balding married Ann Elizabeth "Bettie" Booth in Prairie County. They had a daughter, Hannah Amelia Balding, who died in 1870, when she was about a year old. A second daughter, also named Amelia, was born on 26 May 1871 in DeValls Bluff, and Bettie Balding died, possibly during or shortly after Amelia's birth.

James remarried to Laura Isabella Cunningham on 27 Nov 1873 in DeValls Bluff. Their first son, Victor Claude Balding, was born in Prairie County on 9 Mar 1874, followed by Nelly Ione on 5 Jan 1876, James Ernest on 2 Mar 1878, and Ethel Clare on 16 May 1881. Amelia Balding died in 1879 when the family lived in Newport, Jackson Co., AR.

It must have been at his uncle J C Morrell's knee that James Henry Balding learned the newspaper trade. By 10 Jun 1874, the Arkansas Gazette reported that he was a member of the Arkansas Press Association, representing the DeValls Bluff Journal. In 1876, he was a member of the same association, but representing the Beebe Magnet.

By 1880 James and Laura had moved to Little Rock in Pulaski County, AR., and James was employed as a printer. Ethel Clare died in Little Rock on 11 Oct 1890.

By 1900, Laura was living with Victor, Nelly and James (Ernest) in Little Rock, and James Henry was listed as an "inmate" in the Arkansas Confederate Soldier's Home, established by the Arkansas Legislature in 1890 for Confederate veterans. In 1905, the Legislature opened admissions to the home to also include mothers, wives and widows of Confederate veterans. He was also listed on the home's 1910 census.

Laura Isabella Balding died on 16 Jun 1910 in Little Rock. She is buried in Oakland Cemetery there. James Henry Balding died on 21 May 1917 and is buried in the Confederate veterans section of the Little Rock National Cemetery.

One of the surnames on my mother's side of the family is Chapin. One of my cousins was curious about whether I'd be able to connect us to Deacon Samuel Chapin, one of the founders of Springfield, MA.




Photobucket

The photo above is of "The Puritan,"
and the model purportedly was Deacon Samuel Chapin.


The answer is yes. Chapin family history is very well documented, particularly for the family members and descendants who stayed in and around Springfield, Roxbury and other Massachusetts cities and towns.

Samuel Chapin was widely respected in early Massachusetts, as were his sons, daughters and their children afterward. The Chapins had their own version of a family empire in Springfield.

Here is how I descend from Samuel Chapin:
Samuel (1598-1675)
Japhat (1642-1712)
Samuel (1665-1729)
Caleb (1701-1755)
Joel (1732-1805)
Joel (1763-1803)
Joel (1800-?)
Nathaniel F (1827-1898)
Frederick (1858-1938)
Hattie Belle (Chapin) Balding (1887-1976)
Doris Geneva (Balding) Williams (1907-1998)
Judith Ann Williams (1937-2004)
Me

As luck would have it, my direct Chapin ancestors had the same pioneering spirit as Samuel, and were not content to stay in Massachusetts.

Nathaniel Foster, son of Joel, was really hard to chase down. He was born in Pennsylvania, and married Elizabeth Harris about 1853. They had 10 children that I have been able to document, including my g-g-granddad, Frederick.

Frederick and Eada Belle (Parrish) Chapin


Nathaniel and his sons were woodworkers - carpenters and furniture makers. The family lived in Olean, Cattaraugus, New York through the 1880 census, but by the 1 Mar 1885 Kansas census, they were living in Bourbon Co., KS.

Then Fred hopped on over to Vernon Co., MO to marry Eada Belle Parrish on Christmas Eve, 1885. Fred and Eada only had two children of which I am aware, Hattie Belle (my great-grandmother) and her older sister Ruth, who died before 1900.

Hattie Belle (Chapin) Balding,
probably around the time of her marriage


Hattie Belle Chapin married Victor Claude Balding on 25 Sep 1901 in Pulaski Co., AR. They raised seven children in Little Rock. Hattie's parents moved there, too and are buried in Oakland Cemetery in Little Rock.
