    1. [KING] COLE - KING Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of three photographs belonging to the COLE, TAYLOR, and SMITH Families including: 1 - Catherine Matilda COLE TAYLOR who was the daughter of Allen John COLE and Eliza Ann KING, photograph taken at the McGhie Studio in Columbus, KS likely in the 1890's or early 1900's with Catherine appearing to be 50's at the time. 2 - Walter Perry TAYLOR taken at the Stover Nelson Studio in Syracuse, NE. Taken in the 1880's or early 1890's, Walter appears to be in his 20's at the time. 3 - Zelma SMITH daughter of Frank Sherman SMITH and Perla Ann TAYLOR, notes that she was born in Miltonvale, KS and died in Island Co., WA, the photograph was taken at the C. I. Lehmer Studio Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding this family: Catherine Matilda "Kate" COLE was b. 31 Mar 1842 in Austinburg, OH to Allen John "AJ" COLE (1806-1885) and Elizabeth or Eliza Ann KING (1811-1873) who were married 12 Nov 1829 in Darien, GA. Kate was one of 10 children born to this couple including, Charles Perry; John Nathaniel; Henry; Henry C.; Jane L.; Ellen; Jane; Catherine Matilda; Mary Elizabeth; and Emma Amelia COLE, all born between 1830 and 1848.She married Jeremiah "Jerry" TAYLOR in 1868 in Boone, IL and they had a son, Walter Perry TAYLOR (1871-1946) and a daughter Perla Ann TAYLOR (1870-1956). After her husband died she married Levi WILLIAMS. Kate died 20 Apr 1900 in Coupeville, WA and is buried at the Sunnyside Cemetery in Coupeville, WA. Walter Perry TAYLOR was b. 31 Dec 1871 in Capron, IL son of Jeremiah & Kate TAYLOR came to Coupeville, WA in 1901 and married Mary A. LOHSE (1881-1961) on 27 Aug 1917 in Bellingham, WA. They had a son, Walter Wilbert TAYLOR (1919-1995). Walter Perry TAYLOR died 26 Aug 1946 in Oak Harbor, WA and is buried in the Sunnyside Cemetery in Coupeville, WA. Carrie Zelma SMITH was b. 14 Apr 1891 in Milton Vale, KS to parents Franklin Sherman Eli SMITH (b. 1865) and Perla or Pearl Ann TAYLOR (1870-1956) who were married 25 Oct 1893 in Portland, OR. Carrie was one of three children born to this couple including Carrie Zelma; John Lester; and Laura Irene SMITH, all born between 1891 and 1894. It appears that Carrie's Father was previously married and had a son Jesse Eli SMITH (1886-1942) and that her Mother married a second time and had three additional children including, Arthur Edwin; Walter; and Robert Byron BLACK born between 1904 and 1910. Carrie married David Edgar BYRD (1888-1969) on 28 Aug 1909 in Victoria, BC and they had two children, Coda Irene; and William Elmer BYRD born in 1910 and 1911. Carrie it appears married a second time to Mark Manderville WASHBURN (1888-1978) and they had two children, Edith WASHBURN (b. 1917); and Maurine Madge WASHBURN (1922-2006). Carrie also married a third time to Franklin Gerald George WILSON (1892-1947) and they had a daughter, Cecile Elizabeth WILSON (1928-1934). Carrie died Dec 1968 in Coupeville, WA. I am hoping to locate someone from the family so that these precious old photographs can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [KING] SNODGRASS - COLE - KING Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of photographs including Dillie COLE SNODGRASS who is identified as the daughter of John Nathaniel COLE and his wife Elizabeth. The photographs of Dillie are taken in Concordia, KS; Minneapolis, KS; and Madison, WI. All from the 1880's to the 1900's with her appearing to be from her teens to her 30's. I've also recovered others from John Nathaniel COLE'S sisters family so I know I have the right John, however, I don't see Dillie in his family tree but I do find a Dillie EVARTS SNODGRASS (daughter of John Nathaniel COLE'S sister Mary Elizabeth COLE) who appears to be a match. Quite the mystery - I'm thinking someone simply added the wrong information to the back of the photographs, somehow mixing up who Dillie belonged to in the family. A photograph online of Dillie in her later years does appear to be a match to the girl in the photographs I have. She appears to be in her teens in the 1880's photographs. The 1900's photograph taken in Madison, WI identified as her may not be as I feel that the brow line, mouth, and nose are different. I'm thinking it may be another relative of the same family? In this photograph she is pictured with two children, one appears to be a girl about 6-8 years old and the other a boy about 4-5 years old. The fourth photograph is identified as Melvin SNODGRASS, however it appears to have been taken in the 1890's with Melvin a teen at the time so not a match with Dillie's son Melvin who wasn't born until the 1900's. Again, I'm thinking someone guessed at the identify. This photograph was taken in Arapahoe, NE. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Dillie and her family: Dillie Ellen EVARTS SNODGRASS was b. 15 Oct 1873 in Delphos, KS to parents Leman "Lee" Simon EVARTS (1838-1893) and Mary Elizabeth COLE (1844-1919). Dille was one of 12 children born to this couple including, Edward Clark; Minnie Elizabeth; Kate Eliza; Thomas Henry; John Allen; Dillie E.; Daisy; Leman Jr.; Charles Kirk; Bert Vick; Fannie Fern; and Bessie May EVARTS all born between 1864 and 1886. Dillie was married first to Thomas William MEE (1868-1921) and they had two sons, Harry Winford; and Herbert Edwin MEE. Her second husband was Descom SNODGRASS (1867-1948) whom she married in 1898. Dillie and Descom had three daughters, Zelma SNODGRASS BROWN (1899-1989); Jennie May SNODGRASS COMER; Mary Lila or Lilah SNODGRASS GNUSCHKE; and sons Melvin Descom and Frank O'Kane SNODGRASS. At the time of her death on 24 Apr 1951 her son Harry MEE was living in Kansas; Herbert MEE was living in Mossyrock, WA, and sons Melvin and Frank SNODGRASS were living in Kelso, WA. Her daughter Zelma BROWN was living in Oak Grove, WA; daughter Jennie COMER was living in Toledo, WA; and Mary GNUSCHKE was living in Kelso, WA. A brother Bert EVARTS was living in Nebraska. Dillie is buried in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Kelso, WA. Dillie's uncle was John Nathaniel COLE b. 14 Sept 1830 in Georgia and died 7 Apr 1903. John was married to Elizabeth EVERETTS (1835-1915) and together they had four children including, Emma Eliza; Frances Elizabeth; Ella Jane; and Nellie E. COLE all born between 1869 and 1882. John and his sister Mary Elizabeth COLE (Dillie's Mother) were two of the children born to Allen John COLE (1806-1885) and Eliza Ann KING (1811- 1873) who were married 12 Nov 1829 in Darien, GA. I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photographs can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [KING] INGLING - LEVAUGHN - KING Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Harry Raymond INGLING born 19 July 1890 in Denver, CO. Harry appears to be in his teens or 20's at the time it was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Harry and his family: Harry Ramon or Raymond INGLING was b. 19 Jul 1890 in Denver, CO to parents John Conroe INGLING (1846-1937) and Altha Emma FLEMING (1854-1926). Harry was one of 10 children born to this couple including, Charlie; Nettie Ella; Ellen; Ina May; Myrtle Estelle; Alta Iris; Jessie Mable; Edith Pearl; Harry Ramon or Raymond; and Arthur Luverne INGLING, all born between 1872 and 1893. Harry married Margaret LEVAUGHN KING (1913-1998). Harry entered the military in 1917 in Vancouver, WA listing his residence as Gold Hill, OR. By 1942 Harry's military registration card listed his place of residence as County Court House, OR and listed his employer as the Jackson County Court House. Harry died 9 May 1967 in Portland, OR and is buried in the Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, OR. I am hoping to locate someone from this INGLING Family so that the photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    3. The List, This shows what working from memory can do. Elijah's wife's name is Fredericka Christina HENRY, not Smith. Always look at your database BEFORE typing emails to avoid embarrassing mistakes. :-) -- V/R, Chris Watson “Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth are never basic criteria.

    1. [KING] Update on Elijah KING
    2. Chris Watson
    3. The List, The 1860 US Census for E. Stroudsburg, Monroe Co., PA lists lists his birthplace as Virginia. But the 1870 US Census for E. Stroudsburg, Monroe Co., PA lists lists his birthplace as Maryland again.  He is not listed in the 1880 census records although his wife is listed as "widowed" so he died between 1870 & 1880. -- V/R, Chris Watson “Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth are never basic criteria.

    1. [KING] Elijah KING from MD
    2. Chris Watson
    3. The List, I'm still (the last 45+ years) trying to find the origin of my GGGGF Elijah D. KING (1850 US Census for Stroudsburg, Monroe Co., PA) listed as a shoemaker born in MD, married to Fredericka [SMITH] - blind, and sons: Richard (my GGGF), William, Charles, Emanuel, & Daniel. Based on Ancestry DNA, the possibility exists that he may have been Jewish (maybe original surname KOENIG?). Anyone have an Elijah KING in your database? -- V/R, Chris Watson “Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth are never basic criteria.

Pearl, Thank you so much for your offer. I've had a little luck finding a few facts but I can certainly use more. I've tried to do some research in the last day or two because I am housebound at the moment due to a very bad boy named HARVEY! So far over 30" of rain as of today. However, I'm not having much luck finding such things as marriage dates/locations, death dates/locations and info on children. I have only been in the hunt for about a week, so I've got a lot of work to do. The Adams line seems to run this way: Samuel & Sarah or Susan Harris Adams early 1800's Charles M & Lula Jennette (Nettie) King Adams ca mid - late 1800's Milton Thomas & Florence Ernestine Jefferson Adams late 1800's Robert L & Shirley Rita Murphy Adams ca 1900's There is also a John W Adams and wife Elizabeth, maiden name unknown, with Elizabeth's date ca 1777. I don't know if he is really part of this Adams line or not but if so, he would be the earliest I would know of. No other data known. Anything you would be willing to share would be greatly appreciated..

Pearl, Thank you so much for your offer. I've had a little luck finding a few facts but I can certainly use more. I've tried to do some research in the last day or two because I am housebound at the moment due to a very bad boy named HARVEY! So far over 30" of rain as of today. However, I'm not having much luck finding such things as marriage dates/locations, death dates/locations and info on children. I have only been in the hunt for about a week, so I've got a lot of work to do. The Adams line seems to run this way: Samuel & Sarah or Susan Harris Adams early 1800's Charles M & Lula Jennette (Nettie) King Adams ca mid - late 1800's Milton Thomas & Florence Ernestine Jefferson Adams late 1800's Robert L & Shirley Rita Murphy Adams ca 1900's There is also a John W Adams and wife Elizabeth, maiden name unknown, with Elizabeth's date ca 1777. I don't know if he is really part of this Adams line or not but if so, he would be the earliest I would know of. No other data known. Anything you would be willing to share would be greatly appreciated..

I have TWO King families in my database actually. 1. William Alfred King b. 1685 Stafford Co. Va d. 21 Dec 1727 son of William King and Judith Peyton b. 1622 abt.. William Alfred King m. Sophia Elizabeth Burgess d/o John Burgess and Elizabeth Unk They had son William Valentine King b. 1711 Stafford Co, d. 1778 Halifax Co, m. 1737 Elizabeth Edwards They had son Phillip King b. 24 Sept 1738 m. 19 Aug 1766 Mary Kerney of Berkeley Co. WV and they had Jane (Wm Wilson) Caty, William, Margaret "Peggy" (Jacob Wilson) and Elizabeth. No further information on these children other than the two who married Wilson boys. 2. Judge Leicester King b. 1 May 1789 Connecticut d. 19 Sept 1856 Bloomfield, Ohio m. Julia Ann Huntington. They had son David Leicester King b. 1826 d. 28 Jan 1902 Akron, Ohio m. 1 May 1849 Bettie Steele of Charleston Wva. They had Ellen Lewis King, Bettie Steele King, Howell Steele King, Susan Huntington King, and Martha Perkins King. NOTES on Judge Leicester King: Judge Leicester King was a major landowner who had been friends with Akron founder Simon Perkins and was instrumental in bringing the Pennsylvania & Ohio Canal to Akron. Leicester King, was born in Suffield, Connecticut, May 1st, 1789, and died at the residence of his son-in-law, Charles Brown, at North Bloomfield, Ohio, September 19th, 1856. He was a son of David King, who was born April 16th, 1758, and died May 4th, 1832, and of Hannah (Holly) King, who was born June 4th, 1758, and died July 14th, 1831. Leicester King was married October 12th, 1814, to Julia Anne, daughter of Hon. Hezekiah and Susan (Kent) Huntington, who was born December l0th, 1790, and died at Warren, Trumbull County, 0h., January 24th, 1849. June l0th, 1852, he was married a second time to Marcia Calista, eldest daughter of Dr. E. Crosby, who still (1883) survives him. Mr. King commenced business as a merchant, in Westfield, Massachusetts. In 1817 he came West, for the purpose of settling himself in business in Ohio, and located at Warren, where he remained for about two years. He then, at the earnest solicitation of his brothers-in-law, who resided at Natchez, Mississippi, proceeded thither, intending to establish himself at that point. On arriving at his destination, with the brightest prospects of success, he could not reconcile himself to the thought of rearing his family under the degrading influences of slavery. For this reason he abandoned his scheme and promise of pecuniary reward, and took voyage to New York, narrowly escaping death from yellow fever while aboard the vessel. The same year he again came to Warren, Ohio, and entered upon a successful mercantile career, making Warren his home until 1854, when he took up his residence in Akron. In 1833 he became interested with General Simon Perkins and Dr. E. Crosby in the land upon which is located the city of Akron.& The land was surveyed and the city laid out by General Perkins, the management of the property finally devolving on Judge King, who handled it with great sagacity, and satisfaction to all. He served one term as Associate Judge; and as a Whig represented Trumbull County District in the State Senate for two terms-from 1835 to 1839-when his early impressions of slavery induced him at each session to introduce bills for the repeal of the black laws of Ohio. He was an ardent opponent of the institution of slavery, and afterward allied himself with the Liberty party, refusing the most flattering offers of advancement from the Whigs in obedience to his convictions upon the question of slavery. He was the nominee of the Liberty party for Governor, in 1842, and again in 1844, and of the same party for Vice-president, in 1848, though he subsequently declined, and gave his support to Martin Van Buren, the Free-soil candidate. In the cause of abolition he was a zealous and ardent worker. His speeches were spirited and to the point. Unintimidated by threats of mob violence, he persistently and powerfully protested against the encroachments of the "slave power;" making, after each nomination for Governor, a spirited canvass of the State, going in his own carriage into almost every township, and by his clear and earnest speeches convincing thousands of the enormity of the evils growing out of the system of slavery, and the fearful responsibility the national government was under for its continuance and extension. As a businessman his promptness, honesty, candor, and public spirit rendered him generally popular. He was a bright example of success in business, not only based upon, but growing out of, the "justice, mercy, and truth " of the law of God. To him more than all others, Akron is indebted for that canal, an enterprise which so materially aided the then growing village in developing her commercial interests. Of his family of eight children, the eldest, Hon. Henry W. King, was born in Westfield, Massachusetts, September 24th, 1815, and came with his parents to Warren in 1817. He was graduated at Washington (now Trinity) College, Hartford, Connecticut, August 4th, 1836; commenced the practice of law, at Akron, in 1839; and in 1850 was elected Secretary of State and Superintendent of Public Schools. He was actively interested in the Akron school laws, and while in health was identified with all the public enterprises for promoting the prosperity of Akron. October 20th, 1842, he was married to Mary, daughter of Dr. E. Crosby, of Akron. He died in Akron, November 20th, 1857, leaving his wife and two children-Henry C. King, who subsequently died at the hospital on Arlington Heights, while in service, August 11th, 1864, and Julia Huntington, who married H. D. Fisher, of Chicago. The names of the remaining seven children were; Julia A., who married Charles Brown, Esq., of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, February 14th, 1842-he was a merchant of that city, and died at Aiken, South Carolina, where he had gone for his health, October 3d, 1880-Mrs. Brown, who still survives him, is now (1883) a resident of Akron, Ohio; Susan H., who died June l7th, 1839; Leicester Jr., who is now (1883) in the auditor's office, Washington, D. C.; David L., whose sketch we give; Helen D., married May 1st, 1862, James Atkins, Esq., a lawyer, now of Savannah, Georgia; Hezekiah H., a resident of Savannah, Georgia; and Catherine H., who married, September 19th, 1855, W. K. Pendleton, D. D., president of Bethany College, Bethany, West Virginia. NOTES on David Leicester King: A Harvard graduate, David King became an attorney in Akron, Ohio. He had been one of the towns most eligible bachelors. After retiring from law, he served as secretary of the Akron Sewer Pipe Co.; president of the King Varnish Co. and executor of his father's real estate empire. He also built the Valley Railroad. Most importantly he lent money to B.F. Goodrich to bring his factory to Akron and provided another loan for F.A. and C.W. Seiberling to start Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. David and Bettie were known for their charitable work and were heavily involved with the Akron school system, public library and Glendale Cemetery. The Akron Beacon Journal once noted "no name will in the future be more honored or respected." The lived in a red brick mansion 175 E. Market St. at the northwest corner of East Market and Prospect St. In 1890's David's health began to suffer and his business ventures turned sour. He and Bettie moved around the corner to a home at 306 Park St. where he died Jan. 28 1902 at age 76. NOTES on Bettie Steele Bettie Washington Steele grandniece of our first president, George Washington. She arrived in Akron, Ohio in 1849 when the stagecoach pulled up at the Empire Hotel at Market and Main St. Everyone wanted to see the new bride of Akron attorney David Leicester King. Bettie was the first to step off the coach and the crowd murmured in approval. The 22 year old, soon to be known as "the most beautiful woman in Akron," bowed to the onlookers and carried a parasol. She had brown eyes, long black curls and a radiant smile. "What a beauty," the crowd whispered. "She looks just like George Washington." a spectator noted. After the death of her husband David, Bettie moved in with a daughter on Perkins Street. Two of the King children died young, but the three others found mates in three prominent Akron families. The Raymonds, the Yeagers and the Paiges. Their home was bought by Benjamin F. Harbaugh who turned it into a piano store that operated for more than 30 years. The building was torn down in the 1940's and served as an auto sales for 30 years. The site of the home is now Haven of Rest rescue mission that operates to this day. Bettie was buried next to her husband on a tree-lined hill at Glendale Cemetery. Her family's headstones surround her at Section 8 Lot 6. Bettie was the d/o Robert Steele and Ellen Lewis. SHE was the d/o Howell Lewis and Unk wife. Howell Lewis was the son of Fielding Lewis and Betty Washington (George's sister). Notes on HOWELL LEWIS: Howell Lewis <http://www.kenmore.org/collections/portraits/howell_lewis.html> was born in 1771 and died in 1822. He rented a farm in Frederick Co., VA. He acted as personal secretary to George Washington after his brother Robert. He later managed Mount Vernon. Howell moved to Kanawha Co., WV to property he inherited from George Washington. He was married one time to Ellen Hackley Pollard. They had 11 children. Another source: Fielding Lewis (1726-1781) married Elizabeth "Betty" Washington <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Washington_Lewis>, the sister of the American President <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President_of_the_United_States> and Revolutionary War <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Revolutionary_War> General George Washington <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Washington>, in 1746.

Both Fielding and his wife Betty are commemorated with street names in the nearby Ferry Farm subdivision <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subdivision> (Fielding Circle and Betty Lewis <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Lewis> Drive). Notes on FIELDING LEWIS: KENMORE, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania Co. pg. 313-25. "The Mansions of Virginia 1706-1776 by Thomas Tileston Waterman 1965. Originally known as Millbrook, this house was erected by Fielding Lewis for his bride Betty Washington after he acquired the land in 1752. Lewis was a prominent mover in the Revolution, and at his own expense manufactured large quantities of arms and ammunition for the American army. His estate, impoverished by this expense, was sold, and the house changed hands many times before it was purchased by the Kenmore Association in 1928. It is now open as an exhibition house, and its rooms, famous for their fine decorative plasterword, are furnished with objects of the period. www.kenmore.org According to the will of Fielding Lewis, his eldest son John Lewis, after the death of his stepmother, was to come into possession "of all my lands in Spotsylvania County and in the town of Fredericksburg."

Pearl, Thank you so much for your offer. I've had a little luck finding a few facts but I can certainly use more.

However, I'm not having much luck finding such things as marriage dates/locations, death dates/locations and info on children. I have only been in the hunt for about a week, so I've got a lot of work to do.
