The Same Woman?

I have two photos to share with you today.  Our first is a photo postcard.

On back is an area for a name and address and a message, much like the postcards of today.  Notice the area for the stamp.  There are the letters AZO on all four sides with upward pointed triangles in each corner – this dates the postcard to 1904-1918.

How does the date correspond to the dress of the woman?  During the early days of the twentieth century women were still very modest in their dress, from the floor-length gowns of the first days to a slight hike in hemlines by 1918.  But a knee length dress?  And short sleeves?  Perhaps this woman was an actress or singer?

Also notice the name of the photo studio printed on the side – the first time I’ve seen a name on a photo postcard.  Astoria Photo Studio, 32 Flushing Avenue, Astoria, Long Island.  I could find nothing on the studio.  Online I did find that Flushing Avenue is now known as Astoria Boulevard.

Our second photo was perhaps taken a little earlier.  I think both women look very similar – could this be the same person?  In the first photo she would be a little plumper.  Probably not the same, but interesting.  Here again is a much shorter dress – in an earlier time period.  I would date this photo to 1900.  She strikes an interesting pose!

This photo is on a very stiff card, with no information on back.

Always interesting to look back at old photos.

 

 

Creekmore Family of McCreary County

Saturday during my quest for a new post I went to my file on Pine Knot Cemetery in McCreary County.  If you are unfamiliar, McCreary County lies on Kentucky’s southern border with Tennessee, on the eastern side.  The Pine Knot area is about five miles from the Tennessee border.  Within this small cemetery are two clusters of families by the name of Creekmore.  Not being from the area I was not familiar with this name.  I think perhaps this is one of the reasons I enjoy genealogy so much.  You find names that are known in one part of the state are not in other parts.  I wanted to find out if these two families were related.

William B. Creekmore, (I believe Ballentine to be his middle name since that is his grandfather’s name), is listed in the 1860 Whitley County census with his parents, Francis Marion Creekmore and Nancy Campbell.  William was eight years old.  His siblings were Henry, 15; Elizabeth, 12; Susan, 8; and Sarah, 3.  Ten years later the census record, in McCreary County, listed two new names, Solomon, 9; and N.L., 3, a little girl.  William came from a farming family.

On the first day of February 1893, William Creekmore married Margaret Ellen Robbins in Rockcastle County, Kentucky.  In the 1900 census for McCreary County William is 42, a hotel keeper.  Margaret is 37, born in Tennessee.  They have no children.  Living with them is the widowed Rosie Branam, 34, sister-in-law, and Gertrude Davis, 13, a niece.  In 1910 there are still no children.  William is a merchant, and living with them is Earl Branam, 6, a nephew.

Margaret Ellen Creekmore, March 8, 1863 – December 31, 1915.  Pine Knot Cemetery, McCreary County, Kentucky.  ‘Sleep in Jesus, blessed sleep from which none ever awake to weep.’

Margaret died December 31, 1915.  In 1920 William, 65, and Earl, 17, are borders.  William died in October 14, 1927.  Williams death certificate doesn’t give much information – there is no date of birth, he is ‘about 75’.  It says ‘don’t know’ for the parents’ names and birth places.  If only young Earl Branam is left to report the information, he probably didn’t know.

William B. Creekmore, December 23, 1854 – October 14, 1927.

The Advocate Messenger, Danville, Boyle County, Kentucky.

Saturday, October 22, 1927

Buried beside William is his brother, Solomon Creekmore.  Solomon was ten years younger.

He married Katie Brown January 17, 1901, in Campbell County, Tennessee.  They had six daughters and one son – Rhoda, Sopha, Ellen, Blanch, Mamie, Syble, and Clarence S. Creekmore.

Solomon Creekmore, October 6, 1864 – April 17, 1928.

Solomon died April 17, 1928.

Katie Creekmore, February 13, 1872 – February 19, 1944.

Kate lived another sixteen years.  She died February 19, 1927.  Her death certificate lists her parents as William Brown, born in Scott County, Tennessee, and Martha Hudson, of Clay County, Kentucky.

Jasper C. Creekmore is the oldest of the second family of Creekmore’s buried in this cemetery.  He was born October 11, 1848, and married Mary Ann Taylor.  In the 1880 census of Franklin County, Arkansas, Jasper is 31 and Mary Ann is 25.  He was born in Tennessee, she in Kentucky.  Children listed are Sylvester, 7, born in Tennessee; Julia, 5, born in Tennessee; James, 3, born in Kentucky; Ackmon, 1, born in Kentucky, and a baby of two months that is not named, born in Arkansas.  By 1900 the family is back in Whitley County, Kentucky.  Renford is the name of the child born in Arkansas, which is noted in the census.  Daughter Nellie, 13, was born in Kentucky, as well as the rest of the children, Lilly, 10, Thomas A., 9; Francis, 4; and Milford, 2.  Why did they move to Arkansas?  It was for a very short amount of time.  Baby Ackmon was born in Kentucky in 1879.  In 1880 Renford was born in Arkansas.  And in 1887 Nellie was born in Kentucky.  How interesting to know why they moved and why they came back.  The 1900 census tells us Jasper and Mary Ann have been married 27 years, they’ve had 13 children, ten living.  In the 1910 census Jasper is a farmer, son Sylvester a farm laborer.  James and Ackmon were coal miners.  Renford was a day laborer and Nellie worked in a grocery store.  What a good picture of family life.

World War I came into this family’s life, like all the others.  Sylvester’s registration card says he was 45 years old, a farmer, born January 25, 1873.  He is short, black eyes and hair, and is physically disqualified.  It does not say why he was disqualified, but he lived to be 80 years old.  It must not have been life-threatening, it just didn’t allow him to fight in the war.

His brother Milford Rose Creekmore was 19, born November 25, 1898, a salesman.  He is short, slender, brown eyes and black hair.

Jasper C. Creekmore, October 11, 1848 – October 30, 1918.  Mary A., his wife, March 30, 1854 – February 2, 1919.  Married July 18, 1872.

Like so many during 1918, Jasper Charles Creekman died October 30, 1918, of influenza.  His death certificate says he was born October 11, 1848, was a merchant.  His parents were Green [Berry] Creekmore and Ida Ellison.  Mary Ann survived him by a few months.  Her death certificate lists her age as 64 years.  She died of pneumonia.  Her parents were Benjamin Taylor and Hala Creekmore, both born in Kentucky – notice that last name!

Four children and a grandson, Napoleon Creekmore, are buried with them.

Sylvester Creekmore, June 27, 1873 – August 30, 1926.  ‘Dying is but going home.’

Milford R. Creekmore, November 25, 1898 – October 11, 1924.  ‘Gone but not forgotten.’

Julia Creekmore, January 19, 1875 – October 12, 1924.  ‘Let our Father’s will be done.’

Napoleon Creekmore, June 11, 1904 – February 12, 1927.

Lillie Creekmore, October 27, 1889 – February 14, 1923.

So how do these two families come together?  We must go back to Robert Creekmore, 1755-1824 and Elizabeth Batchelor, 1756-1829.  But let’s go back one more generation for one more piece of evidence.  Robert Creekmore’s parents were David Creekmore and Frances Ballentine.  When Robert named his sons, he wanted his mother’s maiden name to be used, in memory of her.  Robert and Elizabeth Creekmore named their first son Ballentine Batchelor Creekmore – giving him his grandmother and mother’s maiden names.  Another son was named William Balentine Creekmore.  It is from these two sons that both families have their connection.  There are about ten years between the births of the two brothers, Ballentine Batchelor born about 1784, and William Ballentine about 1797.  Jasper C. Creekmore is the grandson of Ballentine Batchelor Creekmore.  William B. Creekmore is the grandson of William Ballentine Creekmore, making Jasper and William B. cousins.  The line from Robert and Elizabeth Creekmore is – 1) William Ballentine Creekmore 1797 – Francis Marion Creekmore 1822-1907 – William B. Creekmore 1854-1927.  2) Ballentine Batchelor Creekmore 1784-1850 – Green Berry Creekmore 1818-1887 – Jasper C. Creekmore 1848-1918 – Sylvester Creekmore 1873-1953.

Dedicated to the memory of Ballentine and Barsheba Batchelor Creekmore and Robert and Elizabeth Batchelor Creekmore of southeastern Kentucky; and to the memory of the unknown dead buried in this cemetery.  Erected by their descendants, August 1986.

In Jellico Creek Cemetery is a stone dedicated to the Creekmore – Batchelor families.  Brothers Ballentine Creekmore and Robert Creekmore married sisters, Barsheba and Elizabeth Batchelor.

Private Joseph Linton Nally Gave All During WWI

Private Linton Nally, 1894-1919.  Died in France.  Gethsemani Catholic Cemetery, Nelson County, Kentucky.

In the quiet Gethsemani Cemetery of rural Nelson County, lies a war hero.  Joseph Linton Nally fought during World War I and gave his life in France, defending our country and the allied nations.  He was such a young man at the time of his death – only 25.

Linton, as he was known, was the youngest child of George Napoleon Nally and Annie Linton.  In the 1910 Nelson County census George is listed as a farmer, 52 years of age, he and his wife had been married 30 years.  Annie is 55, has born seven children, seven living.  Three children live with their parents – Anne, 19; William, 17; and Linton, 15.

On February 20, 1917, Linton married Mary Lillian Hicks.   January 6, 1918, a son was born, Randolph Joseph Nally.

Linton’s WWI registration card lists his date of birth as August 7, 1894, lived at RFD#1 New Haven, Kentucky (in Nelson County).  He is married.  Linton is described as tall, of stout build, with blue eyes and light colored hair.  I could find no other information about his service.

Linton must have come home at least once while on duty, because on the day of his death, January 7, 1919, Lillian was six months pregnant with their daughter, Mary Oneida, born April 16, 1919.

In the 1920 census Lillian and her two children are living with her father, Daniel Hicks.

In the 1930 census Lillian Hicks Nally has married Joseph Sidney Reid.  They have a houseful of children, Randolph and Mary Oneida Nally the oldest.

Mary L. Reid, December 24, 1892 – June 24, 1973.

Lillian lived an additional three years after her second husband died.  She was buried next to Linton Nally.

 

Mr. and Mrs. C. Upton Shreve Forfeit Golden Wedding Celebration Due to Poor Health

The Golden Wedding Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. C. Upton Shreve

Celebration Will Be Prevented, But the Venerable Couple Will Recall How the Freezing of the Ohio Delayed Their Marriage

Mr. and Mrs. C. Upton Shreve, of 1618 Third Avenue, left last night for Pass Christian, Mississippi, where they will spend the rest of the winter.  Mr. and Mrs. Shreve’s departure will prevent the celebration of their golden wedding on January 28, an event to which their friends have looked forward to for some time with the greatest interest.  Mrs. Shreve has been in very bad health for some months, and it was upon the advice of her physician that the proposed celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage was given up.

Mrs. Shreve was Miss McCandless, of Cincinnati, a daughter of Mr. James McCandless, of that city, and a niece of Judge Wilson McCandless, of Pittsburg, who was a very intimate friend of President Buchanan, and who himself refused the nomination for the presidency.  She is a granddaughter of Commodore Truxton, of naval fame, for whom the gunboat Truxton was christened a few months ago at the Norfolk shipyards.

Mr. Shreve was born January 12, 1828, and his birthday was first named as the day for the wedding to take place.  But on January 12, 1852, the Ohio River was frozen and Mr. Shreve was unable to reach Cincinnati at the appointed time.  The marriage was postponed until January 28.  Even by that day the Ohio was still frozen, and Mr. Shreve then went to Frankfort by stage.  From there he went to Lexington by the only railroad in the South at that time, and thence to Covington by stage, where he crossed the river on the ice.  The wedding took place at 10 o’clock a.m. January 28, 1852.

Mr. Shreve was born in Cincinnati, but when he was three years old his parents moved to Louisville.  He was graduated at St. Mary’s College, in Marion County, which was conducted by the Jesuits, and afterward entered the Law College in Louisville, being one of the first students to be enrolled in that institution.  He was president of the Eureka Coal Company, of Washington, Indiana, for many years and general cashier of the firm of Shreve & Brannin.  Several years ago he retired from the mercantile business and has since been living at his home at 1618 Third Avenue.

Mr. and Mrs. Shreve have six children who are now living.  They are Mrs. Tracy Underhill, who was Evelina Shreve; Mrs. T. P. Satterwhite, Jr., who was Minnie Shreve; Mrs. William Trabue, who was Elizabeth Shreve; Thomas T. Shreve, of Ferguson, Missouri; Charles U. Shreve, Jr., of the New York Herald, and L. L. Shreve, of Detroit.  Miss Sallie Shreve, who was the eldest daughter, died in her early youth.

It was greatly regretted by Mr. and Mrs. Shreve, as well as by all their friends, that they were unable to celebrate their golden wedding.  However, on Friday night an informal reception was held at their home, at which only relatives and intimate friends were present.  If Mrs. Shreve’s health permits they will spend a number of weeks at Palm Beach before returning to Louisville.

At one time, Mr. Shreve, with Mr. Preston Woolley, edited a weekly paper in Louisville called The Ron Ton.

 

Will and Inventory of William Stewart Who Fell at the Battle of Blue Licks

It is quite possible that William Stewart was one of the victims of the Battle of Blue Licks.  He was listed as one of the privates killed, as well as one of his witnesses, Francis McBride.  Clough Overton, another witness, was a captain for this mission, and he, too, died August 19, 1782.  As mentioned in the court records below, only one of the three subscribing witnesses was alive to prove this will.

From the inventory of William Stewart, we can tell he is a single man, no mention of dishes, furniture or other household inventory.  He does not seem to be your average Kentuckian with his wardrobe.  He must have been a man of means, with the number of waistcoats, buckles, handkerchief, stockings, linen shirts, clothes brush, geographical book, etc., that are mentioned.

Terribly sad that he died at such a young age.

Slaughter of Kentuckians at the Battle of Blue Licks

Blue Licks Battlefield – On August 19, 1782.  Pioneers suffered a bitter defeat and were routed by their Revolutionary War enemies.  Captain Caldwell concealed his British and Indian army along the ravines leading from this hilltop to the Licking River.  Advancing into this ambush, the Pioneers were outnumbered and forced to flee across the river.

Earlier in the month Ritchey and I visited Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park.  I was most anxious to see the memorial for those who fought and fell during this battle on August 19, 1782.  Some call it the last battle of the Revolutionary War, fought ten months after Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown.  The battle was fought between about 180 Kentucky settlers and 240 British and Indians.  An attack on Bryan’s Station, Lincoln County, Kentucky, August 15, 1782, by the British and Indians, was led by Captain William Caldwell, loyalist Alexander McKee, Simon Girty and Matthew Elliott.  The Kentucky settlers took shelter within their stockade and fought back with all their might.  The British killed all the settlers’ livestock and destroyed their crops.  When they heard that the Kentucky militia were on the way they retreated.

The Kentucky force was led by Colonel John Todd of Fayette County, assisted by Lieutenant Colonels Daniel Boone and Stephen Trigg.  Plans were formed overnight and on the morning of August 19, 1782, this band of approximately 180 men set out to confront the British and Indians.  The two forces met at the Licking River, today located in northern Nicholas County.  The British and Indians secured for themselves the best spot on the riverbank for battle.  Advancing into this ambush, within fifteen minutes almost half the Kentuckians were killed or captured.  These were men who had fought hard and long with the Indians during their time in Kentucky.  It is said that Daniel Boone wanted to wait for Benjamin Logan, who was bringing enforcements.  He was a day or two behind.  Others thought this would give the enemy time to cross the Licking River and head north, eventually crossing the Ohio River into Indiana and Indian territory.

The Martyrs of the last battle of the Revolution lie buried here.  Dedicated March 14, 1935, by the Kentucky Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

After the battle, those still alive ran through the forest, trying to get back to Bryan’s Station.  Some did, some did not.  When Benjamin Logan’s militia arrived, they found the area littered with corpses.  Many were scalped, many were butchered, cut into pieces.  They were unable to identify anyone.  All were buried in a mass grave.

So valiantly did our small party fight that, to the memory of those who unfortunately fell in the battle, enough of honour cannot be paid.’  Daniel Boone
