102 I remember reading the diary of my grandmother's about when my mom was born. "The sun was shining and I was in the field chopping cotton when the sickness came on me and I took the wagon back to the house about lunch time. After Florence was born, I rested a little and then had supper on the table by the time Lay came in from the bottoms." She married Noble W Beall on July 25, 1942 and just before Larry was born. they bought a house across the street from the city clock. They had 3 children, Rhonda Jane, Larry Noble, and Kenneth Aubrey Beall. She was killed in an automobile accident on the 19th of August, 1959. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lay and Nannie Jones. She is survived by sisters, Aline Greeson, Josephine Whithead, Sybil Ortwein, Totsie Cambron, and Doris Sheppard. Brothers-Clifford Jones, Charlie Jones, and Edward Jones. Jones, Florence Louise (I25014)
 
103 If Michael Yoakum is the father of Solomon, and this Solomon is "our" Solomon (b. 1773, moved to Missouri), then he may well have had other children prior to those listed. Jacob "James" (father of Levi or Jacob Levi) and his brothers (Solomon, Jesse, and Mike) are mentioned in several anecdotal accounts and county histories as being early settlers in SW Missouri and NW Arkansas. Little is certain of the early settlers, however there is sufficient proof of Solomon's presence in the 1820s. One account lists a Jacob Yoakum being sent from North Carolina to accompany Indians being moved west. That Michael and his family lived in "North Carolina territory" early on may hint at a connection. Very little of the lore presented in these historical accounts has ever been substantiated with any kind of documentation. Greene, Jefferson, and Knox locations are all the same (county boundaries changed over time). He lived between 1762 and 1784 in Peaks of Otter or Little Otter Creek, Bedford County, Virginia. He lived between 1762 and 1784 in Bedford County, Virginia, (See Mike Sizer notes).16 He lived between 1785 and 1791 in Upper French Broad River, Greene County, North Carolina Terr. (Greene Co. Tenn.). He lived between 1791 and 1797 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. He lived in 1799 in Knox County, Tennessee.

Michael & his wife, Anne, had a fairly contentious relationship with a major multi-year lawsuit (1778-1784) brought by Michael's wife starting in 1778 and ending over six years later, after numerous court hearings, with a Dismissed Complaint. The complaint filed in Bedford County in October 1778 by Anne (Boyles) Yoacum against her husband Michael, recites that Michael had been living with and had two children with another woman, who was not identified, nor are the children known. Bedford Co, VA Court records:

While the above shows numerous court records of the law suit, there is no evidence or notation of a divorce being granted.

1785 Oct 5, Deed
Michael Yoakum of Greene County, NC, by mark, to Thomas Wood of Bedford County, for 500 lbs, one hundred acres lying on both sides of Stony Creek, with promises to indemnify purchases of any [word] claims by his wife (Smith, 530). It now seems that Michael and his wife have settled on the upper French Broad River. Also living there were Frederick Mayberry (who migrated from Peaks of Otter area, Virginia) and Jacob Smelser.

1792-1979: In 1792 Greene County became Jefferson County and also Knox County. In 1797 Cocke County was formed (earlier called Hancock County) So for a period of fourteen years, Michael, Frederick Mayberry, Jacob Smelser and Solomon Yoaham were all living in the same area together. Many court records are listed in Jefferson County for these men.

1799: On the Knox County Tax List appear Jacob Yocum, Michael Yocum, and Solomon Yocum.

104 In 1786, Richard Castleberry along with wife Anna, brother-in-law Samuel Newman [husband of Eve Castleberry], and Peter Castleberry, are shown as charter members of the Long Creek Church of Christ, on Long creek of the Ogeechee River, in what is now Warren Co, Georgia. Richard was received by baptism, as was his wife Ann. His brother John and wife Mary Ann were also in the first roll of members kept from 1786 to 1799, as wellas John Castleberry' sons, Jeremiah and John, and Petter Castleberry, his brother David's son from North Carolina. In addition, a John Trice and John Trice, Jr. were members of the church, undoubtedly relatives of Richard's wife Anna. Among the female members from that time period besides Anna and mary Ann Castleberry, were a Mourning Castleberry, Mary Castleberry, believed to be the wife of Jeremiah, Eva Newman, Catherine, the wife of Peter, and a Sarah and Frances Trice. A Mourning Castleberry is shown as baptized (not infant) on the 1786-1799 roster, not sure whose daughter she would have been.

Some of the minutes of the church are given her to show that all was not in complete harmony at all times. "Richard Castleberry was cited for fighting and drinking, but later forgiven. Jan. 19, 1793, Peter Castleberry, Thomas Jones, Richard Castleberry charged with fighting. February 6, 1793, Richard Castleberry charged with fighting. June 16, 1797, Richard Castleberry informed church he had struck a man in anger. July 15, 1797, Richard Castleberry charged with drinking too much and threatening to kick a man." Two months later, Richard asked and received a letter for dismissal for himself and his wife. You can see Richard was not a man to cross.

110 Information from Hoover Descendant Dwight Needens - "John's great-great-granddaughter, the late Elsie (Hoover) Workman Grisham, told me during one of my many visits to her home, in 1972, that she and other descendants had the marker put up for John's grave and they had guessed at the year of birth and death as there were no records to verify and anyone living when he had died had long since passed away. It was certain that his first name was John, but the middle name, "William", was also a guess. To date, I have never found any record where he had a middle initial although the transcription of the indexing of his name, for his marriage record, shows his name indexed as "John H. Hoover" but as you can see, on the attached scan of his actual marriage record, there is no middle initial listed. None of his seven siblings had any middle names or were ever listed with any middle initials on any records I have found for them, so it's my conclusion that John did not have a middle name or initial either and that the "William" that was added to his tombstone was merely a guess or speculation."

John & Nancy's marriage record. Entry or license number 609. Record number 544 shows that Mary Sutton & Charles Lewen were married JUL-28-1798, also in Greene County, by Daniel Kennedy who also performed the marriage of Samuel Sutton & Sarah Hice on FEB-11-1800 (Marriage Record Number 651). John & Nancy named their first son, Matthias, after John's father. Their second son was named Samuel. I strongly suspect that the Samuel Sutton who married Sarah Hice was a brother of Nancy Sutton, and that Mary was their sister. Ancestry.com shows that Samuel Sutton named one of his sons "Jacob Hoover Sutton".

111 It is with sad heart that commemorates upon the life of my youngest sister, the wife of Chas. Gaulding, of Nottinghill, MO. Emily J. Gaulding, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. JA Kyle, was born in Tennessee, June 22, 1880; moved with her parents to Mo. at the age of 8 years, where she had resided ever since. She was converted at an early age, and united with the Oak Dale Missionary Baptist Church where she had been a faithful member ever since. Sister Emily was afflicted with that dreaded disease of cancer, and the long anguish hours of pain and misery she suffered is indescribable, but she bore her suffering with much patience to the end. Conscious of her condition, knowing she could not recover, she welcomed the message "Come to me thy good and faithful servant," encouraging her loved ones to follow. I cannot pass without saying a word of credit for her family, I never saw more tender and affectionate care, not only by her husband, sons and daughters by by inlaws also. May her passing be a guiding star for her loved ones to follow on. Emily was united in maggiage to Chas. Gaulding Dec. 16, 1897. To this union were born two sons and five daughters: Socia Haskins, Annie Foster, Mildred Lane of Nottinghill, Mo., Gertrude Wallace of Hammond, Mo., Doris of the home, Jessie of Nottinghill and Herval of the home. She departed this life Jan. 30 at 10:30 p.m. and was laid to rest in th Gaulding Cemetery Feb. 1 at 11:30 a.m. with the Rev. Alva ennett of Dora, officiating. She leaves to morn their loss besides her family, two brothers and four sisters: R.T. Kyle of Nottinghill, Mo.; J.L. kyle of Springfield, Mo.; Mrs. R.A. Baker of Hammond; Mrs. RD Gaulding of Thornfield; Mrs. D.D. Gardner and Mrs. N.V. Gaulding of Nottinghill; thrteen grand children, a host of relatives and friends. Kyle, Emily J. (I6231)
 
112 It was said that "Frank Barnes was a sheriff and a very mean and bigoted law and order man where blacks were considered, but he had a very soft side when it came to his horse. It was said that he always rode a big, white horse, and that when he died, the horse came and stood with his head through the window all during his final hours. Also, Benjamin Franklin Wolfe (son of Phillip Zadock Wolfe) said that Barnes had said something to the effect that no one should harm a hair on that horse's head, and that he should be buried close by when he died and not just hauled off somewhere-maybe even have him stuffed."

From Rebecca DeArmond-Huskey included the following stories in her book, Bartholomew's Song: A Bayou History, about the infamous Sheriff Frank Barnes. Y. W. Etheridge told a story about Barnes in 1959, saying the incident took place in 1896 or 1897, "Frank Barnes rode his mule into town, got more to drink than he needed and was running up and down the street 'popping off' both with his gun and his mouth." Ermestine (Nobles) Sprinkle said, "Frank Allen Barnes was the town marshall when he was young. He rode to town everyday on a gray mule. He drank all the time, and when whiskey was no longer legal, he drank antiseptic. He was the biggest liar in the country. [294] I think when he was marshal he killed a man, an escaped murderer. He shot at my grandfather one time and the bullet went through his hat." Mary (Morris) Foster [Claude Lorenzo Foster's wife] remembered him, "He rode a white donkey and was always singing and drunk." The kids were scared of him." Mark Hawkins said, "He had a long white beard and rode a white mule. He hid whiskey all along his route." His nephew, John Sumner Barnes said, "His white horse was named Cal. One time he rode to Monticello and started playing Santa Claus with the children on the square and it was the middle of July. Another time he caught a black boy stealing his apples. He made him get in the tree and eat apples until he got sick." Frank Barnes had a peculiar way of teaching a lesson. Charles Sidney Gibson remembered this tale that was told to him by a Mr. Hicks. "He knew a Negro was stealing his chickens, and one day one rode by with two live chickens hanging off the saddle. Mr. Barnes said, 'You like chicken, do you?' 'Yes sir,' the man replied. 'Well you go ahead and eat them now,' said Barnes. 'But they ain't picked; they ain't cooked,' retorted the Negro. Barnes made him eat those chickens - feathers, guts, feet and beak!" Beth Thurman heard a story about the white-gray donkey-mule-horse named Cal. " When Frank Barnes was dying, the horse came and stood with his head through the man's window all during his final hours." [295]

117 Jacob Huber, son of Hans Huber, came to Pennsylvania with his father's family and most likely was married after he came. He took charge of the homestead in 1745 and between this date and 1754 he moved with his second wife and five children to Martie, now Providence Township. His will written in 1754 shows that his children to the second wife were then under age. Those to the first wife were all married at that time. Jacob Huber divided the homestead in Earl Township between his two sons by his first wife, John and Martin, on Jan. 10, 1754. He moved to Martie Township, where he took up a tract of several hundred crew of vacant land, which he improved, and later built a grist mill which his son and grandson operated. In later years it was known as Strohm's mill. Source: The Huber=Hoover Family History 1928

143 KEENEY & YOCUM TIES GO FROM SOUTH POTOMiAC TO GREENBRIER, KENTUCKY AND EAST TENNESSEE .
KEENEY researchers in Oregon, Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia take note:
The colonial ties between the KEENEY and Yocum families suggest an ever-increasing closeness. It is undisputed that Peter Keeney was probably an in-law in the Matthias Yocum family, witnessed the marriage of his son, and was present at his death. It has just been revealed that Peter's brother, John Jonathan, accompanied Michael Yocum as they claimed grants in North Carolina in an area that soon became the Tennessee county of Greene, later divided into Jefferson and Cocke counties. Numerous'records show this connection.

EARLY KEENEY -YOCUM TIES.
On a 26 April 1745 order by the Council of Virginia 100,000 acres of land in the Greenbrier valley were offered to settlers who would settle and cultivate the land, with a limit of 1,000 acres per grant. Virginia land records show that JOHN KEE1'l"EY (450 acres), Felty Yocum (480 acres), Frederick See (480 acres), Matthew Yocum (330 acres) and George See (360 acres) received grants in 1750 and 1751. The Yocums and Sees were closely related by marriage.

In 1750 practically all of westem Virginia and West Virginia were in Augusta county. This is important to remember, as many counties (Bedford, Botetourt, Hampshire, Hardy, Greenbrier eta!) were formed and residents changed counties·without moving away. Dr Thomas Walker, returning from an exploratory trip·into the Kentucky region in 1750 noted that several families had already settled in the Greenbrier area of Muddy Creek and Big Levels. The French & Indian War against English expansion broke out in 1754 and continued to 1761, with 60 Shawnee warriors making havoc of the new settlers, including the destruction of a new fort. However, the deadly blow by the Shawnees came in the summer of 1765. Contradictory
reports estimate that 9 to 12 prople were killed and seven taken prisoner. For about 45 days 59 terrified inhabitants huddlesd inside the Muddv Creek outpost awaiting the fall of the tomahawk or scalping knife. Captain John Lewis. who was 45 miles away along the Jackson River, came to their relief. finding on arrival that the enemy had moved two days earlier. Virginia Gov Dinwiddie called the incident "a shameful panic" after learning that the settlers had abandoned their homes, left crops in the field, losing everything they had worked for. A Mrs F Keeney, Frederick Yocum and Felty Yocum had a lost their lives in the uprising. JOHN KEENEY was a member of Dickinson's Company of Rangers in 1756 and 1757. From where had he come? Augusta court records of August 1749 listed him as defendent in a lawsuit with James Rutredge and listed his residence as South Branch. South Branch was in the HampshirelHardy county where the Yocums and Sees had lived. Apparently JOHN KEENEY also lived there for a time and came along to Muddy Creek, living adjacent to his Yokum neighbors. First settlers of Hardy and Grant counties (1735-1750) included Frederick See, George See and Matthias Yocum, living in the Mill Creek area, close to Maysville in present day Grant County. Keeney and Yocum family court records were often listed in Bedford County, the nearest courthouse. Actually most of their activities took place in Botetourt County, founded in 1769. Greenbrier County was founded from Botetourt County in 1780. Greenbrier landowners listed in 1780 included John Keeney, Michael Keeney, Gcorge See, Michael See and George Yocum. Matthias Yocum and Peter Keene had departed the year before from their Auhur's Bortom homes near Fort Lewis in the Roanoke river valley. An August 9. 1755 Augusta court record lists the transfer of 261 acres on the north side of the Roanoke above Arthur' Bottom from James Campooll to Matthias Yocum..

SETTLEMENTS AFTER INDIAN RAIDS.
In I761 Frederick See and Felty Yocum settled on Muddy Creek, the scene of recent atrocities. During the calm belween 1764 and 1774 numerous settlers found their back to the Greenbrier region, mostly in the year 1769. There were sporadic Indian attacks; in 1780 they killed Thomas Griffith and took his son prisoner. The boy was rescued. Arbuckle's Fort became the rendevous point in 1774, when armies were firming for the showddown with the Shawness in the Battle of Point Pleasant.

Kegler's History Of the Virginia Frontier lists many families that moved from 1748 to 1757. Matthias Yocum is listed with a group of 18 located in the lower end (Roanoke area) of Augusta County. Wolves were numerous in this settlement Waddell's Annual says that the promise of a reward netted 256 wolf heads in 1751.

KEENEYS & YOCUMS TO NORTH CAROLINA & TENNESSEEE.
During the American Revolution John Jonathan Keeney (cl750-c1845) was active on the frontier, with Michael, Thomas and David Keeney offering supplies. For this Jonathan received a 67 acre grant in 1788 on the north side of the French Broad River in Orcene Co TN (earlier a part of North Carolina). Earlier, in 1782. Peter Keeney of Fort Lewis received a grant for land in Fayette Co KY, the grant being registered in Botetourt County. Peter had already accompanied Matthias Yocum to Kentucky). From the Draper Manuscripts we read that Matthias Yocum (1705-1783) came to Kenyucky in the fall of 1779 and settled with his family at Yokum's Station in 1780. His wife, Elizabeth See (b.5-8-1730 at Telnechocken Creek, Berks Co PA died in KY 11-14·1780). Their large family lists lots of sons, although there were daughters. They were listed in the HlSTORY OF HARDY COUNTY as follows: Jesse Yocum 12-2-1756 m. Ann Boyles, Elizabeth 1760, George Washington 12-3-1763, J Amelia 1764 m. James Ray c 1781 in KY, Jacob 1767, Matthias Jr 1771, James B 1772, Solomon 1773 d.l0-26-I850 in Denton TX, Isaac 1777 at Fort Harness (now Moorefield WV). The parents of Matthias Yocum were Francis Jochem (b. 1678 in New Amsterdam NY, d.I751 in Hampshire Co VA) & Millie Felty (b. 1682 ·atNew Amsterdam). His wife Elinor See was a daughter of George Ludwig Zeh (b.1680 in Ruhlsheim Germany, d. 24 Apr 1752 in Augusta Co VA).
In 1738 the Yocum, See, Stump and Harness families moved to the South Branch of the Potomac, settling at Mike's Ford, near present day
Moorefoeld, then in Hampshire County. As already stated, under the inLafayette 1745 order of the Virginia Council, many of them claimed land along the Greenbrier River, and along with John Keeney were the first families to apply. During the next decades numerous land transactions took place as listed in Bedford Co Va and Lincoln Co (later KY). The Botetourt County Index of Tithables 1770-1777 listed Conrad Yocum 3, George Yocum 6, Hy Yocum 1, Jolm Yocum 2, Matthias Yocum 2. On 5 October 1780 George Yocum was married to Isabella Taylor in Bedford Co, with Peter Keeney as witness. Between 1770 and 1790 Matthias Yocum of Mercer Co KY purchased land from Thomas Burton and wife in Washington (later Greene) Co TN), North Carolina, where the Keeneys were also moving. No doubt this was for son Michael Yocum and wife Ann Boyle (d/o Alexander Boyle who had lived in Bedford Co from 1762 to 1784. In 1775 Charles McGlothltn conveyed 55 shillings to Michael Yocum for land along the Little Otter.
Bedford County Michael was a witness in the trilal of John Downing. In 1785 they moved to Greene Co NC (which became Tennessee). Priscilla Yocum (b.l773), Michael's daughter, married Fredenck Mayberry in 1790. Thus the close allIances of these two families, all the way from the South Branch in the 1740s to the Greenbrier Valley to North Carolina and Telmessee was crystal clear. In 1791 Jefferson Co TN was formed from Greene. In 1784 the sons of John Keeney and their families fill the records of the Big Pigeon Baptist Church in Cocke Co during the next decade. John Keenry and Michael Yocum served together on the Court of Pleas in Jefferson County in 1798. It is doubtful that the families had moved but the county boundaries were no longer the same. The tax list of Knox Co TN. 1799 listed Jacob, Michael and Solomon Yocum. Several Keeneys were dismissed from Big Pigeon Baptist Church in 1799. Soon after by 1803 the Keeneys scattered - Jolm Jonathan to Indiana, David and Thomas to Missouri, James (killed in War of 1812), Joseph to what became Anderson County TN. Yocum families scattered to Missori, Arkansas and Texas.
Today one finds both families in almost every state. Al Capp made the Yocum name a household word with his Li'l Abner comic strip.
