This file from Thelma Whelan 9 September 2003. (JBS)

    1. Josiah1 Coleman was born Bef. 1775 in VA., and died Bet. 1824 - 1830 in Meade Co., KY.. He married
??? Shepherd.

Notes for Josiah Coleman:
Josiah came to Kentucky ca 1811.

Josiah appears on Company Pay Roll from Mar. 29 to May 28, 1813 for the 10 Reg't, Kentucky Militia. He was a
Private. He fought under Lt. Col. William E. Boswell.

Some of the records on Coleman found in Crawford Co., IN., Harrison Co. IN., Nelson Co., KY., Hardin Co., KY.
and Meade Co., KY.

Marie Coleman helped me with some information on the Coleman family. She worked at the Meade County Library
for many years and was a big help to me over the years with my genealogy. I received some information from Ken
Smith in summer of 2000, and Apr. 10, 2001 I have received information from Ruby Coleman that has also
helped in my search..

1820 Census, Little York, Hardin County, KY
Household of Josiah Coleman, 1 male 45 and upward; 1 male 26-45; 1 male 16-26; 3 males under 10.
1 female 26-45; 2 females 10-16; 8 females under 10 ( It sure looked like 8, which could be his grandchildren)

In the History of Meade Co., Ky. 1824-1991, Published in 1991, I found some history of Mona (Atwill) Clupper's.
She had the maiden name Josiah's wife as Shepherd.
Josiah's father Guilimus Jr., son of Guilimus Sr., son of Thomas, a patriot of the Revolution, son of Daniel Jr., son of
Daniel Sr., son of Robert Coleman who came to Virginia in 1638.

This was the only family of Coleman's in Meade County until Elisha Ashcraft and wife Hester Atwill adopted
Woodward Coleman who also was a descendant of Robert Coleman. However, this branch of Coleman's descended
from Roberts son Robert and Josiah's branch decended from Roberts's son Daniel.

Notes for James Walter Fowler:

I was told years ago by some of the older members of the family that the middle name of James W. Fowler was
Walter. In the 1870 census there was a James W. Fowler, Jr. He was the father of Jennie Fowler Cain. His correct
name was James Washington Fowler. Not sure if he had his fathers full name.

All the Meade Co. census has James Walter born in Maryland. Notes from Jan Lenning files: Death Certificate for
his son has lists him as born in Virginia. On the 1910 census of Buffalo Co., Nebraska, his son Samuel E. stated his
father was born in Virginia.

Profile on Churches, Meade County Messenger, Wed. July 25, 2001
New Brandenburg Baptist Church:
In 1917, some of the older residents of the Weldon-Brandenburg Station community decided there was
a need for a Baptist church for the people living between Brandenburg Baptist and Buck Grove Baptist
churches. Brother W. J. Banks, who was pastor of Brandenburg Baptist at that time, was consulted and
he agreed to hold services in the Weldon schoolhouse on Sunday evenings. A. B. (Gus) Benham and
H. C. (Lum) Pack, two of the oldest residents in the community, were joined by their families as well as
Dorsey Brown and his family. These three families became the founders of the proposed new church.
John Shrewsbury donated the land for the new church. In February 1918, at a service held at the Weldon
schoolhouse, the new church was organized with 35 members and Brother Banks served as paster.
Services continued in the Weldon schoolhouse till the church was built.
In 1919, the first church services were held in the new building. The churches first deacons were Albert
Pack and Henry Shrewsbury. In 1935 Brother Burton Calico was the first paster called by the church.

Henry Shrewsbury was a nephew of John Shrewsbury, and a son-in-law of Gus Benham.
Albert Pack was a son of Lum Pack. Henry and Albert were brothers-in-law.

Gus Benham and Lum Pack were next door neighbors. I've been blessed to have both of them as my great
grandfathers. Another great grandfather, William H. Jupin was one of the founders of Bethel
Methodist Church around 1843. Any descendants of these men can can be proud to have them as ancestors.

 This is a copy of the letter that was sent to the family from Harrison Lodge No. 122


                                                            Whereas, the inevitable destroyer of all human life,
                             Death, again has invaded our membership and removed one of our most
                             faithful and energetic members, Brother A. B. Benham, who departed this
                             life on August 22, 1924, through a complication of diseases, which
                             caused him much suffering during the last year of his life, however,
                             he patiently awaited the summons and past on to his reward, surrounded
                             by his family and friends.
                                                            Brother Benham was seventy years of age. He had been
                             an active member of Harrison Lodge No. 122 for over thirty-five years, at
                             which lodge he had been initiated, past and raised to the sublime degree of
                             a Master Mason. He was one who attended lodge regularly and was always
                             ready to do his best when called upon. Therefore be it
                                                           Resolved, That the passing of Bro. Benham has cast an
                             unusual pall of sorrow on the membership of our lodge and also that of
                             the community because of his usefulness as a citizen and as a a devoted
                             member of the great Masonic fraternity, He was ever faithful in the
                             promotion of Christianity, benevolence and charity. Be it further
                                                           Resolved, That all members of Harrison Lodge No. 122
                             deeply deplore the loss of our Bro. Benham, and that we extend to the
                             grief stricken family our heartfelt sympathy in this time of bereavement.
                             And commend them to the care of Him who doeth all things well, and who
                             is able to bind up the broken hearted and render consolation, be their
                             bereavement ever so great. Be it further
                                                            Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to
                             his family and a copy be spread upon the minute book of our lodge.

                                                                                   Signed by committe

Notes of Mildred Cain Griffee:
He moved to Nebraska in early married life. He influenced His nephew James Fowler, son of James Washington
Fowler to come to Nebraska. Also Wm. T. and Mary (Fowler) Hawkins, which a family tie loss to the Kentucky
Fowlers, due to not being able to travel distance and finances.

From the files of Jan Lenning:
1910 census of Kearney, Buffalo Co., Nebraska
243-251 Fowler, S. E. , Male, White, age 56, married one time for 31 years,
born in KY, father born in VA., mother born in KY., speaks English, farmer
Engaged in general farming, could read and write, owned his own farm of 149 acres.

Notes for Mary Elizabeth Byrum:
Files of Jan Lenning:
1910 Census Kearney, Buffalo Co., Nebraska
243-251 Fowler, S. E.
Mary E. Wife, White, age 53, married for 31 years, 13 children, 4 living
born in IN., father born in IN., mother born in IN., speaks English, could read and write.
I think this is one of the saddest entries. Mary had 13 children over the years but in 1910
only 4 were still alive.

Leota's family raised two of the daughters ( names unknown), and Thelma and Ed went to a orphanage. Ed was
adopted out to a Alley family. I believe Thelma married a Donald Price, and a Robert Christ. Had a daughter JoAnn
that was married to a Kixmiller. J.W. and Mary Ruth have visited her. But had not seen her for a couple of years. I
hope I've got the information correct but will send to J. W. to make sure. Bob was married to Harriet at time of his

I thought Uncle Ed's first name was James until I received his obit. The old Shrewsbury Family Bible with the births
of Nathan's children had a page that was torn some and couldn't tell what was wrote there. In the old Cedar Grove
Church register he was listed as J. E. Shrewsbury.

Oct. 6, 2001, E mail from his grandson, Hal Shrewsbury: Ed was injured in 1928 taking some dynamite out of a
well.. it exploded in his hands and he died Jan. 7, 1928.

OBITUARY--SHREWSBURY

   John Edward Shrewsbury was born in Brandenburg, Ky., February 12, 1868, and died in Tulsa,
Oklahoma, January 7, 1928.
   On September 15, 1895, he was married to Miss Martha Pack, at Brandenburg. From there they
moved to Indiana, where they lived until 18 years ago, when they came to Oklahoma and settled near Sapulpa. They
lived there until about a year ago, when they came to Shidler, where they were living at the time of his death.
   Brother Shrewsbury was baptised in infancy, and a number of years ago he was converted and joined the
Methodist Episcopal church at Keifer, Okla., his membership still being held in that church.
   He has been a member of the Masonic Lodge for 27 years and was also a member of the Consistory at Guthrie. He
has been a member of the I. O. O. F. Lodge for more than 25 years.
   He was a man of fine sterling character, honored and loved by all who knew him. He has been in the employ of
the Prairie Oil and Gas company for 17 years and it will be no easy task to find a man to take his place. He was the
very soul of honor and honesty. The community has lost a valuable citizen, the family a kind and loving husband
and father.
   Mr. Shrewsbury was fatally injured by a dynamite explosion, January 5, while at work, and was rushed to the
hospital where everything that love and money could do was done to save him, but the shock was too much, and at
5:30 Saturday morning, January 7, he slipped peacefully away to be with God.
   He leaves to mourn his untimely death, his faithful wife, three sons and two daughters: Lawrence, of
Borger, Texas; Raymond, South America; Mrs. Gladys Brace, Pawhuska, and Howard and Agnes, who
are still at home in Shidler; besides a host of friends who sympathize with the broken-hearted family in their sad
hour of bereavement.
   Funeral services were held in the First Methodist church in Sapulpa, Tuesday afternoon, January 10,
in the presence of a large congregation of sorrowing friends and relatives. The long procession and the beautiful
floral offerings was but a faint expression of the high esteem in which he was held.
   The body was laid away in the beautiful South Heights cemetery at Sapulpa to await the Resurrection
morning.
   May God's richest blessings be upon the bereaved family.

R. D. Duckworth, Pastor

Notes for Martha P. ( Mattie ) Pack:
I doubt that I'll ever find out what Aunt Mattie's middle name was, but I'd bet it was Permelia after Grandpaps
mother. Great great grandma Permelia was living with him at the time Aunt Mattie was born. I don't know any thing
about the family of Aunt Mattie except the names I was given for her children. I hope to find some of her
descendants some day. I've put a posting on Genform, Creek Co., Ok. site.

Oct. 1, 2001. Received a response from Patricia Engle. She is a cousin of Lawrence Harold Shrewsbury,
a grandson of Aunt Mattie. She gave me the birth years of the children from a 1810 census. Also gave me some
other information about the family.

DEATH CLAIMS HONORED WOMAN

Mrs. Ed. Shrewsbury Dies Suddenly At Her Home

  Shidler and community was shocked Tuesday morning when the word was passed that Mrs. Ed Shrewsbury had
died suddenly at her home on the Prairie lease southwest of town that morning shortly after preparing breakfast for
her son, Howard, and her self. Death was wholly unexpected as Mrs. Shrewsbury appeared to be in, the best of
health, and only Monday afternoon she was in Shidler buying supplies for her home and attending to other matters.
  Two years ago, on the day of her death, her husband passed away, and the day and night before her death it is said
that she continually referred to his passing, and her brooding over his death may have had an influence on her
sudden passing away.
   Mrs. Shrewsbury is survived by three sons, Raymond, Lawrence and Howard, the latter living with his mother;
two daughters, Mrs. Gladys Brace, of Amarillo, Texas, and Mrs. Agnes Wilkinson, of this community.
  Mrs. Shrewsbury was a most loving wife and mother, a friend and neighbor endeared to all who knew her. She
was also an active lodge and church worker, at the time of her death being a member of the First Christian church of
Shidler, of the 0. E. S., at Sapulpa, of the Rebekah, Royal Neighbor and Woodmen Circle lodges of this city. Her
passing will be most keenly felt by the community. At the time of her death she was In her fifty-seventh year.
   On September 15, 1895, she was united In marriage to Ed Shrewsbury, and to this union the children named
above were born. The family moved to Shidler from Sapulpa about five years ago and have been residents of this
community ever since. Funeral services will be conducted this (Thursday) afternoon at 3 o'clock at the First
Christian church, Rev. Earl R. Saladen delivering the funeral sermon. Friends and acquaintances are invited.
Interment will be made at Sapulpa, Friday, following the final funeral rites in that city.
  The bereaved and sorrowing sons and daughters have the sympathy of the community in the loss of their beloved
mother, and the community, itself, has lost a most honored and noble woman and friend. May her sleep be sweet,
and her awakening in the arms of her Lord.

Dear Thelma,
I saw your posting on OK, Creek Co, made some time back. Here is what I have as I was reading the 1910 census
for Creek Co. I grew up in Tulsa and Sapulpa. My connection to this family: Lawrence's first wife, Vera Perry, was
the only sister of my father.

I somehow understood that the Shrewsbury family lived (sometime) around Shidler, OK., which is 30 mi. about
from where I now live, in north central OK. I don't know for how long they lived there., perhaps Mattie's husband
was working on a well, there, as this was all oil-country then.

I am happy to have met you and if I can help anymore let me know. I would like to have the parents and such of
Harold's grandparents back as far as we could go; it would be a nice record for him. It was by accident I stumbled on
to their name in the 1910 Sapulpa census ; and will try to find Mattie's and
Edward's lines..Sincerely, Pat Perry Engle,

I'll always be thankful to Pat for her help.

    246         i.Lawrence Harold5 Shrewsbury, born August 06, 1896 in IN.; died August 1968 in VA Hospital in Vallejo,
                    CA.. He married (1) Vera Lucille Perry; born November 11, 1897 in Sisterville, W. V.; died November 26,

                   Notes for Lawrence Harold Shrewsbury:
                   The following information is in a e-mail from Patricia Engle Oct. 1, 2001

                   ..... 2 Lawrence Harold SHREWSBURY b: August 06, 1896 in TX d: August 1968 in
                   CA age at d: 72 est.
                   ......... +Vera Lucille PERRY b: November 11, 1897 in Sistersville, WV d:
                   November 26, 1970 in Ponca City , OK age at d: 73

                   ............ 3 Harold SHREWSBURY b: August 15, 1930 in Borger,TX


                   Lawrence's first wife, Vera Perry, was the only sister of my father. They had two children, both boys. The
                   first one died of pneumonia, I think, when in his first or second year. Vera and Lawrence were living in
                   Texas then, and it was the Depression and Texas winters are severe. Then, they had a second son, Harold,
           who is a close cousin of mine.

           I am sorry to say that Lawrence abandoned his wife and son when Harold was about two and Vera had a
           struggle to raise him alone all her life.

           His father married a second time in CA. to some woman who was in a wheel chair and had a daughter by
           another marriage. He never sought contact with Harold during his growing up years.

           The first son of Vera and Lawrence is buried on the Shrewsbury cemetery lot in Sapulpa. Vera died in 1970
           in Ponca City, OK. ( where I live ) but is buried on her parent's lot also in Sapulpa. I looked after her when
           she had her stroke and Harold was at sea.

           I don't know much more about the Shrewsbury's; except that my mom, now 98, had one date with Lawrence
           when they all were young in Sapulpa and he was very polished and mannerly having attended OU at that
           time, and took her to view her first oil well.

           Note from Hal Nov. 16, 2001:
           Lawrence left Vera in 1932 and married Ruth Kelly who had a daughter Partricia. He did keep in touch
           with me over the years and I visited him and Ruth when I was about 5 years old in Odessa, TX.

Notes for Louisa Samantha Benham:
This is the notes of the talk Minnie Alice Bondurant Scott gave at the funeral of Louisa.

More than a century and a half ago, when our country was young, there came to this part of the country a group of
Anglo Saxon people who settled along the hills and valleys of Doe Run Creek. They built their homes on the
hillsides and raised their crops in the creek bottoms. On these hills they made their homes and raised their families.
One of these strong families was the Benham family. This was the family that Mrs. Shrewsbury was a part of.

Those of us who knew her well remember her for many things, but perhaps the quality that we will think of most is
strength - strength of character, the strength of doing with her hands, and the strength of Christian spirit.
Some of us will remember the little things like seeing her slip a pan of biscuits out of the oven. Or we will remember
the bigger things, like seeing her sitting late at night, when the coal-oil lamp was burning low, beside a sickbed.
There she shared the strength of her healing hands and her courageous spirit with those who waited out the long
night. I can see her now as she walked down the hill to our place along the woods next to Albert Pack's cornfield,
coming along the path by our log barn. From there she could see Uncle Crab's hill and Uncle Press's hill-the hills
where our ancestor had first settled. Then the path came by our spring branch and on up to the rock walk that led to
our yard-and always her Bible was under her arm.

I see her again at her house. It was on a Sunday and we gathered around to sing while Ida Rose played the organ.
One of the songs we sang was "Bringing in the Sheaves". Today I think that if
Mrs. Shrewsbury could leave us with a message, it might be one of the lines of that old song: "By and by the harvest
and the labor ended, We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves".

Now I would like to read a tribute to her from the book Doe Run:

                    Mrs. Shrewsbury

On coldest day or darkest night
She'd walk the broomsage field;
Alone she went through wooded paths-
Her Bible was her shield.

Service was her aim In life-
To help where she was needed;
A call to sickbed, death, or birth
Never went unheeded.

Her cheerful smile, her merry eyes,
Her always willing way
Endeared her to the hearts of those
She helped from day to day.

Our Master's words of challenge
Will her blessing ever be;
For when you've done unto these,
You've done it unto me..


Minnie Alice Bondurant Scott

                  of Miss Fowler, but for some reason he gave up the chase. The bride is a pretty young woman and was
                  attired in a white duck suit that she slipped out of her home and carried with her in a bundle until she
                  reached Louisville, where she dressed for the wedding...In her hurry to get away Miss Fowler left home
                  without a hat, but in Louisville borrowed one from a friend until she could get a new one, which was
                  purchased by her prospective husband.

Marriage Notes for Josie Fowler and Marcus Pack:
I loved my great uncle Judson Pack and Aunt Josie. They were always so happy and golly . We always enjoyed their
visits when they came back to Meade County, mostly for the Fowler homecoming. The Fowler homecoming at that
time was held at Cedar Grove Church ( Methodist Episcopal Church, South ). This is the church where Aunt Josie
was baptised in early life. I'm sorry that I haven't got more on their family. My brother Bill, his wife Janice, Ethel
Lawson, and Aleatha Floyd went to the funeral of Uncle Judson. He remembers being in a very long procession.

Notes for Pusey Kane Shrewsbury:
Pusey and my great grandfather Gus Benham went to the Harrison Masonic Lodge together.

Pusey owned property on the west side of the railroad track that I believe was inheirted from his father. The big
pond on this property would cover the road when it rained and would get ice on it in the winter time. The Highway
Dept. finally got it fixed in the last few years.

The property went to his daughter Mary Helen and now belongs to her son Herbie Chism.

(Sadie) Nichols December 03, 1903 in West Point, Hardin Co., KY. (Source: Meade Co., Ky. Marriages, James
cons. of parents-- Sadie her cons. ( West Point, Ky. ).). She was born April 01, 1884 in Cloverport, Breckinridge
Co., KY., and died August 17, 1976 in Kearney, Buffalo Co., Nebraska.

Notes for James Edward Fowler:
Information on the family of James Edward Fowler has come from the files of his granddaughter
Jan Tarkington-Lenning. Jan e-mailed me on May 9, 2001. I was so happy to hear from her and to get information
on this side of the family.

From Jan's file:
James Edward Fowler was a farmer, a contractor and a builder. Included in the Fowler scrapbook is a copy of his
work sheet which grandmother Zada used to list the births of their children. The letter head lists the phone as # 419
and the residence as 31st and A Avenue, Kearney, Nebraska. It says he does plans, specifications, estimates on
application.

 I remember as a child we would be in his cornfield and we picked tomatoes to eat fresh. When we were young
grandpa Fowler would pay us 10 cents a bushel for dandelions picked out of the yard. Grandpa always had a bushy
mustache. I can remember seeing him sharpen his razor on a leather strap in the kitchen. Grandpa and grandma
Fowler had a big round table in the dinning room and we could all sit down around it. After dinner grandpa would
go into the parlor and we would listen to the radio. That was before TV.

The following is from the 1910 census of Kearney, Buffalo Co., Nebraska:
133 - 134 Fowler J E 27 carpenter house
 Zada                          26           5 children 4 alive

James' Obituary appeared in "The Hub", the newspaper in Kearney, Nebraska on April 2, 1955. This obituary was
sent in by Susan Gross, News Clerk, at The Hub.

OBITUARY
James Edward Fowler
James Edward Fowler, son of James W. and Mary Elizabeth Fowler, was born near Brandenburg, Kentucky on April
13, 1883 and departed this life at his home in Kearney, Nebraska on March 19, 1955, at the age of 71 years, 11
months, and 6 days. Mr. Fowler grew to manhood in Kentucky. In 1905 he moved from that state to Kearney,
Nebraska where he continued to reside until the time of his death.
On December 3, 1903 he was united in marriage to Zada C. Nichols of Cloverport, Kentucky, and to this union were
born fifteen children, twelve of whom survive their father's death. Mr. Fowler, when a young man, joined the
Methodist Church. He was, during most of his life, a carpenter and contractor. In late years, however, and during
the summer months, he worked as a gardener, raising an abundance of vegetables for himself and friends and
neighbors. He is survived by his wife, Zada; eight daughters: Eva Holloway and Jane Staton, both of Kearney;
Florence Uhrich of Hastings; Elizabeth Storch and Margaret Rowland both of Los Angeles, California; Anna
Stark of Hyattesville, Maryland; Irene Davis of Chicago, Illinois; and Mable Tarkington of Anchorage, Alaska; four
sons; Edward of Kearney; Samuel of Boulder, Colorado; Walter of Lincoln, Nebraska; and Oliver of Crete,
Nebraska; three brothers; one sister; ten grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Card of Thanks
We wish to express our sincere thanks for the kindness shown us after the death of our husband, father and brother.
And also to all our friends, neighbors and relatives for their kind help with cards, flowers, and food. And to the
ministry, soloist and the pallbearers. All have been greatly appreciated.
 Mrs. James E. Fowler, Children, Brothers and sister.

Notes for Zada Cleveland (Sadie) Nichols:
From Jan's files:
Some notes on the relationship of Zada with the McQuady family, from Jan Tarkington-Lenning, " I remember
talking to grandmother Zada Fowler when I was a young girl. She told me she grew up with the McQuady family
and that there was a town in Kentucky named after them (according to notes in World Family Tree Thomas
McQuady was the postmaster so the town was named McQuady, Kentucky.) There is a picture of two boys that she
called her McQuady cousins. This picture can be found in the appendix.

The birth certificate we have for Zada was compiled in 1949 for insurance purposes. It lists her place of birth as
Breckinridge Co., Kentucky. In a listing of her birth, grandfather James Fowler's birth, and the births of all her
children she states " Zada C. Fowler was born April 1, 1884 on Sunday eve in Grayson Co., Kentucky".

In 1975 my mother had to write to Nebraska Bureau of Vital Statistics for her birth certificate. She needed to include
the birthplace of her mother. She first typed in "near Brandenburg, Kentucky." She then wrote in the words" Falls
Rough, Kentucky." I am sure mom probably called grandma Zada who was still alive at that time to ask her just
where she was born and instead of retyping the letter mom just wrote the name in by hand. A copy of this letter can
be found in the scrapbook section under Mable Fowler Tarkington.

The compiled birth certificate lists her father as Shadrick Nichols and that he was 40 years old at the time. It lists
Mary Frances Burdette as mother and that she was 35 years old at the time of the birth. The 1870 census of
Breckinridge Co., Kentucky shows Shadrick as 30 and Mary as 26. The 1880 census of Breckinridge Co., Kentucky
lists Shadrick as 40 and Mary as 36. If Zada was born in 1884 that would make Shadrick 44 and Mary 40 at the time
of birth.

he 1890 Tax list for Forks Rough, Breckinridge Co., Kentucky shows Shadrick Nichols with one male 21 and over,
one legal voter, one enrolled in militia, and no children age six to twenty. Zada would have been six that year
unless the tax roll was taken before April 1, 1890.

The 1891 Tax list shows Shadrick Nichols with one male 21 and over, one legal voter, and no children. Zada would
have been seven and countable on this tax report.

The Corinth Church records in the appendix shows that Zada was received into the church in 1897 at the age of 13
in the company of Eva Lillian McQuady(Bryant) age 23. The same day Virgie Falls Mingus was received. Virgie
is the daughter of Thomas Falls and Sarah E. McQuady daughter of William McQuady and sister of Thomas J.
McQuady. The records also show membership for Thomas J. McQuady and his wife Betsy. Thomas died in 1900
and Betsy followed in 1901. Shadrick Nichols was also listed as a member of the church. He was excluded in 1904
but there is no mention as to wether he was dead or had just moved. There is a Burdette listed but the section is not
readable enough to decide what the first name and any other information is written there. Zada was released by letter
in 1912. She must have written to the church when she wanted to join another church in Nebraska. A copy of the
letter is included in my scrapbook.

In the 1900 census of Breckinridge Co., Kentucky, Zada is listed as hired girl for William and (?) Ella Pate. This is
probably Lou Ella McQuady Pate(daughter of Thomas McQuady). This branch of the Pate family was related to the
McQuady family. The children of William Pate are Amuel T. and Mary C. ages 6 and 3 months.

Mr. J. W. Pate, known as "Will" Pate,(husband of Luella McQuady Pate) was Zada Nichols foster father in 1903
when she was married to James Fowler. The Breckinridge County News for Wednesday, December 16, 1903 carried
the following entry :

A FOSTER DAUGHTER OF J W PATE

"Miss Sadie Nichols, of this city who was married on December 3, to James E. Fowler, of Weldon, is a foster
daughter of J. W. Pate, the miller of this city. The wedding took place at West Point and was preformed by Rev.
Crandell, of Brandenburg. Mr. and Mrs. Fowler will reside at Weldon."

As a point of information, Zada's birth is listed as March 1884 on the 1900 census.

The census also shows Shadrick Nichols living with wife of one year, Mary Lampton, and her daughter. Shadrick
and Mary Lampton were married May 28, 1899 in Breckinridge Co., Kentucky. I have found no record of divorce
or death of Mary Francis Burdette (Burditt).

In 1903 in Meade Co., Kentucky, Zada married James Edward Fowler. On the marriage bond is listed for her father,
John Nichols. Her place of birth and her mother's name are not listed.

When researching in Kentucky for McQuady information I corresponded with Larena Bland of Hardinsburg in
Breckinridge Co. She did much checking in local records for me. She had a friend who was the niece of Eva Lillian
McQuady Bryant. She mentioned that her father had been Zada's first beau. Zada made an embroidered sash for him
with his initials ASB. (Abraham Skillman Bryant). A picture of this sash is in the appendix.

On the 1910 census of Buffalo Co., Nebraska, Kearney City, Zada is listed as wife of J. E. Fowler. She is 26 years
old, married for 6 years, has 5 children with 4 living at that time, born in Kentucky, father born in Kentucky, mother
born in Kentucky, speaks English, and can read and write.

On the 1910 census next door to James and Zada is the family of W.D. Springer and his wife Martha, J. C. Springer
and his wife Florence. I wonder if one of these is "Ma Springer" the midwife who delivered several of the children
of James and Zada. The year my father died aunt Zada Elizabeth Fowler Storch came to stay with us and kept us
distracted with stories of how the older ones knew a new baby was going to be there when "Ma Springer" came to
visit. Since Martha was 76 in 1910 I should think that Florence Springer may have been the midwife and perhaps
grandma Fowler named Mary Florence after her.

The following was taken from the program of Zada's funeral:

     176. Louisa Samantha4 Benham (Margaret Coleman3 Fowler, Mary Ann2 Coleman, Josiah1) was born
August 15, 1881 in Weldon, Meade Co., KY., and died December 05, 1969 in Meade Co., KY. (Source: Ky. Vital
Statisties, Vol. 062, Cert. 30820, Deathvol. 69, age 88.). She married Henry Shepard Shrewsbury March 27,
1904 in Meade Co., KY. (Source: Meade Co., Ky. Marriages, Henry Shepard of age-Louisa of age (Weldon, Ky.).),
son of Nathan Shrewsbury and Caroline Coleman. He was born August 23, 1874 in Meade Co., KY., and died May
26, 1952 in Meade Co., KY. (Source: Ky. Vital Statisties, Vol. 022, Cert. 10756, Deathvol. 52, age 77.).

Notes for Louisa Samantha Benham:
This is the notes of the talk Minnie Alice Bondurant Scott gave at the funeral of Louisa.

More than a century and a half ago, when our country was young, there came to this part of the country a group of
Anglo Saxon people who settled along the hills and valleys of Doe Run Creek. They built their homes on the
hillsides and raised their crops in the creek bottoms. On these hills they made their homes and raised their families.
One of these strong families was the Benham family. This was the family that Mrs. Shrewsbury was a part of.

Those of us who knew her well remember her for many things, but perhaps the quality that we will think of most is
strength - strength of character, the strength of doing with her hands, and the strength of Christian spirit.
Some of us will remember the little things like seeing her slip a pan of biscuits out of the oven. Or we will remember
the bigger things, like seeing her sitting late at night, when the coal-oil lamp was burning low, beside a sickbed.
There she shared the strength of her healing hands and her courageous spirit with those who waited out the long
night. I can see her now as she walked down the hill to our place along the woods next to Albert Pack's cornfield,
coming along the path by our log barn. From there she could see Uncle Crab's hill and Uncle Press's hill-the hills
where our ancestor had first settled. Then the path came by our spring branch and on up to the rock walk that led to
our yard-and always her Bible was under her arm.

I see her again at her house. It was on a Sunday and we gathered around to sing while Ida Rose played the organ.
One of the songs we sang was "Bringing in the Sheaves". Today I think that if
Mrs. Shrewsbury could leave us with a message, it might be one of the lines of that old song: "By and by the harvest
and the labor ended, We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves".

Now I would like to read a tribute to her from the book Doe Run:

                    Mrs. Shrewsbury

On coldest day or darkest night
She'd walk the broomsage field;
Alone she went through wooded paths-
Her Bible was her shield.

Service was her aim In life-
To help where she was needed;
A call to sickbed, death, or birth
Never went unheeded.

Her cheerful smile, her merry eyes,
Her always willing way
Endeared her to the hearts of those
She helped from day to day.

Our Master's words of challenge
Will her blessing ever be;
For when you've done unto these,
You've done it unto me..


Minnie Alice Bondurant Scott

     180. Mary Magdalene4 Benham (Margaret Coleman3 Fowler, Mary Ann2 Coleman, Josiah1) was born March
12, 1891 in Weldon, Meade Co., KY., and died August 12, 1963 in At her residence at Weldon, KY.. She married
Ruben Sanford (Rube) Thomas February 07, 1911 in Clark Co., IN (Source: Clark Co., IN. Marriages, 1845-1920,
Book 12, Page 331, Mary Benham--Ruben Thomas, Mary's birth Mar. 12, 1891.), son of James Thomas and Joann
Powell. He was born February 25, 1881 in Weldon, Meade Co., KY., and died October 13, 1940 in St. Mary &
Elizabeth Hospital, Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY..

Notes for Mary Magdalene Benham:
Grandma lived in the old home place of her father, Augustus, where she was born and where she died. When her
step-mother Becky died, she moved in with her father to take care of him. Later Grandpa and and the children
followed. They rented their home to one of her cousins, he was making moon shine and blew up the house.

From my childhood I remember the old weeping willow tree between the house and barn, and the hollyhocks in the
back yard.. Lightning got the tree, and Johnny got the barn with a match. My cousin Dorothy was staying with the
other kids while Aunt Lill was in the hospital having the twins, when the barn burned..

Grandma had surgery 12 years before she died and was found to have cancer. She had lived the last few years of her
life in pain. During the last year or so, her stomach would fill up with fluid, where it looked like she would burst.
I'd take Uncle John's car in the morning (before he would go to work) and take Grandma to St. Mary & Elizabeth
Hospital and leave her. They would drain the fluid, I'd go back the next morning and bring her home. The last few
months she lived, the Health Dept. nurse taught Aunt Louise and I how to give shots in case we needed to. She had a
hospital bed that was moved with her when she stayed at Aunt Louise's or with me. Most of the time she was at her
home.

I have many fond memories of the days and nights spent with her when I was a child. I remember her playing a card
game with us called 7 UP ( this was before TV ). She had a organ that her father had bought her when she was 12
years old and she tried to teach some us to play it. Needless to say I did not learn a note. My mother could not read a
note of music, but could play anything she heard by ear.. Grandma was a very good cook, and made the best pies
you'd ever want to eat. She would bake small individual pies for us children that made us feel very special. She
could make beautiful quilts,and she could knit. She was a good housekeeper and a good Christian woman. There is
so much I could say about her, what she taught us, the funny sayings she had, and so much more. She is the only
grandparent I can remember very well and she is sadly missed.

Grandpa was called Rube. His name gets changed depending on who I talk to and what records I look at.
My mother: Ruben Sanford, Aunt Ruby Thomas: Sanford Rubin, Aunt Cora's Bible: Ruben S., Uncle Pussey's
Bible: S. Ruben.

Grandpa was a farmer. I have no memory of him. He died when I was three weeks old. His gallbladder
ruptured and he died within a few days at the age of 59. In his obituary it said " He was a faithful husband, a kind
and loving father and a good neighbor. He will be sadly missed by his family and all who knew him". Funeral
services were held at New Brandenburg Baptist Church, conducted by Rev. Burton Callico. His favorite song " Jesus
Hold My Hand" was sung by Mr. &Mrs. George Wardrip & Mrs. Earl McQuillen. He was laid to rest under a
beautiful mound of flowers.

One of the stories my mother told me about when she was a child, was that one of the McCloud family          ( I wish I
had a name ) brought Grandpa a American Flag to put in Bethel Cemetery on Memorial Day. He did this every year
until his death. Grandpa didn't live to see two of his son's, Uncle Gus and Uncle J. R. serve in the Army during W W
II.

Two of the family names my mother remembered from her childhood was McCloud and Bryant.

                   Notes for Sylvia Belle Thomas:
                   My mother told me years ago that her grandfather ( Jim White ) wanted her named after his grandmother
                   Sylvia Thomas. This was when I had first started my research in the 1960's. At this time I did not know
                   there was a Old Thomas House and cemetery. I saw them for the first time in April of 1972. I've collected
                   pieces of the family history over the years with a lot more to do. Thanks to the internet I've been able to be
                   in contact with some of the descendant. Donna Poole was the first and then Jayne Dunn, both were a big
                   help with information on their sides and it came at a good time ( Nov. 1999 ). I was able to share it with my
                   mother. She loved to hear anything I could tell her about all sides of her family.

                   In Nov. 1999 she was in the hospital for over a week and after a lot of test, scans & etc. just before
Christmas the family was told she had lung cancer ( Not from Smoking ). In Jan. her doctor told her she
had cancer and that we needed to get the help of Hospice to care for her at home and told the family that she
may have as little time as six months.

Sylvia died at home at 9 o'clock Sat. morning with her children, Thelma, Bill and Earl, daughter-in-law
Janice, and grandson Lee Wardrip around her bed side.

At the time of her death she was the oldest member of New Brandenburg Baptist Church.

Dearest Grandma

We miss you dearest Grandma Since God called out your name
In life we loved you dearly In death we do the same
It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone
For part of us went with you The day God called you home
You left us tender memories Your love has been our guide
And though we cannot see you You're always by our side
Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one The chain will link again

Notes for Oliver Columbus Pack:
Dad's daughter Georgia Rose was born Oct. 30, 1922 in Weldon, Ky.

Dad and Georgia moved to Louisville, Ky. after his first wife Emily died. He and my mother, and his
daughter Georgia, lived there a few years after Dad and Mom married. They moved back to Weldon and
were living at the home that his Uncle Jim and Aunt Bertha Pack had owned when my brother Bill was born.
(Property now belongs to Nevitt Benham) Then they moved to Uncle Jodie Benham's. They bought some
property from Uncle Claud Pack ( this was property that my greatgrandpap Pack owned years before) and
built a house before my brother Earl was born.

Oliver died at his home around 1 o'clock on Sunday morning of a heart attack. Present in the home were his
wife, Sylvia, his son Earl, daughter-in-law Bernice and granddaughter Becky.

Service was held at Bethel Methodist Church, Jan. 4, 1966 at 2:00 P.M.. Officiating Clergy were Rev.
M. C. Hash and Rev. Donald Troutman.

Sermon Notes for Dad by Rev. M. C. Hash

Oliver Columbus Pack son of William and Kate ( Jupin ) Pack was borne in Meade County Ky. March 28,
1899 and departed this life January 2, 1966, age 66 years 9 months and 5 days.

Our friend attended school and grew into manhood in the county where he was born. When a young man he
was united in marriage to Emily Lawson and to this union one daughter ( Georgia Rose ) was born. The
young wife and mother of this home passed away in death a few short years after their marriage. Later in life
Oliver was united in marriage to Sylvia Thomas and to this happy union three children were born, one
daughter and two sons.

He was a honest, sincere and true friend, a true and faithful husband, a kind and loving father, who took
great pride in his family and home. No cost or sacrifice was to great if it could bring pleasure and happiness
to his home and family.

When a young man he was defiantly converted and soon after united with the Christian Church, where he
was loyal to the cause. A few years ago he became a member of the New Brandenburg Baptist Church where
he remained faithful unto the end. With the passing of years and increased responsibility, our friend was
more earnest and sincere in his worship and devotion to God. He was a firm believer in prayer. His faith
was strong. His hope was steadfast. His confidence sure. His love sincere.

He leaves to morn his loss but his eternal reward a true and faithful wife. Two daughters Mrs. Georgia Rose
Riechers of Fremont, Calif., Mrs. Thelma Lee Wardrip, Jeffersonville, Ind., and two sons William
 ( Bill ) and Earl . With eight grandchildren, also one sister, Mrs. Mabel Hall, and one brother Bob Pack,
both of Louisville, Ky., with many friends and neighbors. As a family we can only say Thy will be done, for
the Lord does all things best and well.

Music: Beyond The Sunset, and Bless Be The Tie That Binds sung by Mrs. M. C. Hash.

Bearers were: Emil (Buster) Cunningham, William Hall, Lonnie Lawson, Gus Owen Dix, Albert (Buster)
Lawson and Kenneth Raymer.

           Notes for Jesse Ruben ( J. R., Stoney ) Thomas:

           Uncle J. R. served With the 85th Infranty Division in North Africa and Italy, for 23 months. Performed
           duties of rifleman assisting in placing direct fire on enemy lines.

           In the Meade Co., Messenger: Pvt. J. R. Thomas - 338th Infantry Regiment of the 85th " Custer " Division
           was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge for actual participation in combat against the enemy on the
           Fifth Army front in Italy. Standards for the badge are high.

           This is a poem that Uncle J. R. sent my mother, dated May 3, 1944. He asked her to keep till he got home,
           that he might want it. I found this after my mother's death. I do not know who wrote it. I typed it up and gave
           copies of it to his wife and children today, May 28, 2001. Memorial Day observed.

           Somewhere in Italy where the days are like a curse
           And each one is followed by another slightly worse
           Where the cold wind blows heavier than the shifting desert sand
           And a solider dreams and wishes for a quit and peaceful land.

           Somewhere in Italy where the nights are made for love
           Where the moon is like a search light and the southern moon above
           Sparkles like a diamond necklace in a balmy tropic night
                 It's shameless waste of beauty when theres not a girl in sight.

                 Somewhere in Italy where the mail is always late
                 A Christmas card in April is considered up to date
                 Where we never have a pay day and we never have a cent
                 But we never miss the money cause we'd never get it spent.

                 Oh, take me back to Kentucky let me hear that mission bell
                 For this God forsaken fox hole is a substitute for hell.
