Elias Henry BAYSINGER, Wives and Children


Elias Henry Baysinger was born 26 Dec 1832 in Breckinridge Co. Kentucky, son of Peter Baysinger and Elizabeth RICE. Warren county Iowa Advocate Tribune 9-30-1886 reports death of pioneer Peter Baysinger in Weede Co. Colorado on Sept 9, 1886. Reportedly buried Sedalia, Colorado, Bear Canyon Cemetery. Elizabeth

1840 Census
1850 Census

Elias married 1. Margaret JONES, 9 July 1854 in Warren Co. Iowa (Certificate #11, William P. Jenkins, J.P.). *Does anyone have any information about Margaret Jones - who her family were, when and where she was born, where she lived after the divorce, and when and where she died?*

Cousin Terri says that they were in Kansas 1854-1860, and that the couple was divorced 1858 in Kansas. Larry Payne wrote to the Baysinger list with this information, "An article in the March 2, 1858 issue of the Freeman's Champion of Prairie City, Kansas states

PETITION for DIVORCE - Elias H. Baysinger vs Margaret E. Baysinger

Defendant absent for more than two years. Defendant is
non-resident. Case to be heard October
Term in Lecompton U.S. District Court 2nd Jidicial Dist. K.T. (Kansas Territory)"

Elias was in Kansas with Peter, his father, and their part in "Bloody Kansas" is mentioned in Congressional Records of the time. It is intriguing that they are spoken of as "armed Missourians," not Iowans. I'll link to the images of a couple of pages where Peter and Elias are mentioned, from a book I read on the Making of America site, Political Speeches Partly in the House and Senate Dealing Mainly with Kansas and Slavery. I was shocked to discover that my ancestors wanted Kansas to be a slave state, and were willing to not only fight for that, but enter into a secret society to do so! Title Page, "Armed Missourians", "Vote at the Point of a Sword".

I believe this to be Elias in 1856 in KS:

Name: LIAS BAYSINGER
State: Kansas
County: Fourth District
Township: Terr. No Twp Listed
Year: 1856

Database: KS 1856 State Census Index

By 1857, Elias' father is in Douglas Co. KS:

State: Kansas
County: Douglas
Township: Calhoun Twp.

and so is Elias, same township, same page:

By 1859, Peter has moved (or the boundaries of the county have been redrawn):

Elias and Margaret Jones had one child, Ferris (or Farris) I. Baysinger, born July 1857, according to the 1900 Census. Evidently he was raised by his mother and her second husband. Does anyone have a birth record for Ferris, a divorce or second marriage record for Margaret?

I see Ferris in the Iowa State Census, taken in 1895. Ancestry extraction lists him as Faris I. Baysinger, age 40, race white, birthplace: Clarke IA; residence: Ward, Clarke Co.

Farris Isaiah BAYSINGER married Jennie PATTERSON b. Sept 1877 PA in Clark City, Iowa. they were farmers near Osceola, Iowa, which is where he and Jennie are buried. They had 3 children:
  1. Robert Lindley Baysinger b. 4 Jan 1882 Clark, Iowa, d. 17 Jun 1979, married Maude Eva CLAVER 27 Mar 1907, Murry, Iowa (Eva was b. 17 June 1874, Clarke Co. Iowa, d. 1959, Mt Moriah, MO), both bur. in Sharon Chapel Cemetery, south of Mount Moriah, Mercer Co. Missouri
  2. Olive Baysinger b. July 1884 m. Pearl EIVINS 19 March 1906, in Iowa or Missouri, bur. Rose Hill Cemetery, Ridgeway, Missouri
  3. John Baysinger, b. Sept. 1886, died at age 23, never married, bur. Osceola, Iowa Cemetery.

I have been unable to find Elias, Margaret or Ferris in the 1860 Census so far.

Elias returned to Indianola, Iowa in 1860 and married Sarah Goosic in 1861. Warren County, Iowa 15 August, 1861, Elias Henry Baysinger and Sarah Goosic, Bk 1 page 103.

9-4-1872 Warranty Deed Book, Warren County, Iowa. Andrew and Julia Goosic sold land to Elias Baysinger for $500. Center of section five in twp 75 range 23 west

Sarah Maria Goosic died 1 October 1882 in Warren County, Iowa. Elias and Sarah had nine children:

** Elizabeth J. Baysinger, born 23 September 1862, Warren County, Iowa; died 27 December 1892, Warren County, Iowa, buried Indianola, Warren County, Iowa.

** Phoebe Baysinger b. 1861 Indianola, Warren County, Otter Township, Iowa. Married Fletcher SNYDER; b. 1855, Iowa. Their children: *Samuel Snyder, *Frank Snyder, Charles Snyder, Sarah Loretta Snyder, Claude DeLoyd Snyder, Myrtle Snyder, Florence Snyder, Clara Snyder, Dora Snyder

In 1880, Fletcher was living in Bethany, Harrison Co. MO (where, coincidently, my Grandpa Harvey McBEE was from, who would eventually marry Phoebe's niece Anna) with his then wife and children:

This is Elias W. & family in 1920. I did not know that he remarried; Sarah died in 1904. Does anyone have a marriage record for this couple? Guy and Bertha were Ida's children from a previous marriage. Notice that Fred PRALL is living two houses away -- He and Eva/Evelyn later marry. Awful image, I know. This is from HQ; Ancestry's is much worse.

> ..... 2 Laura Baysinger d: October 01, 1882 in Warren County, Iowa

The story I heard of Sarah and baby Laura's death, is that Sarah's dress caught fire, and she and the baby were both burned to death.

After Sarah's death, Elias married 3. Lydia SCOTT, Sarah's sister's sister. A source of great confusion is that Elias referrs to his wife "Mary J." in his will of 1900, shortly before his death. Elias died 8 November 1900 in Warren County, Iowa

Warren Co Newspaper 2-18-1886 "Elias and Lydia Baysinger married last wk in Mo. A guardian had been appt. for her that she was not competent to manage property. Her neighbors say a great injustice was done by appointment of a
guardian and his treatment of her and her property. He made a futile attempt to prevent her marriage only to be laughed at for his pains." *We need to find the court proceedings of this guardianship case.* I would love to get this newspaper on microfilm, and read the whole darn thing, ads and all.

1880 Census

Iowa State Census

1900 Census
1900 Census Warren County, Iowa Otter Twp Sheet 1. Elias, Lydia, divorced son Peter (a blacksmith) and William who helped on the farm lived together, along with the young ones Isaac H. & Nancy A. Elias could read and write and owned his farm. John and James lived near by, and his daughter and son-in-law Sarah and Jeff BYERS lived next door. John Baysinger and his family lived on the next farm and next was James Baysinger.

Iowa census for Warren County in June 1900 lists Elias, 67, and Lydia A., 50, married 13 years to Elias. That means they were married in 1887. William A. is shown as 19 yrs old, so he apparently was not the son of
Elias. In that same 1900 census, Isaac is 12 and Nancy is 10. William is actually of the age to be the son of Elias and Sarah Goosic Baysinger so don't know about "their 3 children" of the will. Lydia is the mother of 3 children, 3 living. Has anyone found the birth records for these 3?

Will of Elias Henry Baysinger
1-9-1901 Will proved Warren Co, Iowa Peter A Baysinger and Elias W. Baysinger were executors. Will states all property in wife's name to remain hers and at her death to be equally divided between their 3 children, William A, Isaac H and Nancy A. It further states that wife, Mary J. Baysinger to receive 2 bay mares "Tobe and Belle". The remainder of his real estate, 213 acres to be equally divided between his children: Peter, Elias, John, James, Phoebe Snyder, Mary Ellen Sipault, Sarah Frances Byers, Ada Belle Dilley and Ferris

Greetings,

Elias Henery was the brother of my GG Grandfather, W.H. Baysinger. The picture you posted was sent from my brother, Duane. In your comments you stated "I was shocked to discover that my ancestors wanted Kansas to be a slave state". I think you have misinterpreted what he said. He was testifying to the investigators what the Missourians had said to him, which was that "they were bound to have Kansas a slave state, if they did it at the point of a sword". When the Missourians asked him how he would vote, he replied "I would vote the free-State ticket"

Unfortunately, Renee didn't leave contact information. I hope she joins the Baysinger list and shares her information there.

Larry -- thanks so much for the clarification. That makes so much more sense, considering that EH's brother was murdered by a pro-slavery gang after the war. I hope you are on or will join the Baysinger list also: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~valorie/Baysinger-L.htm

Hi Valorie,
I have some info about the Basinger's you have posted about. I am a decendant of Elias and Lydia, Isaac Henry was my great-grandfather. I believe Renees' grandmother and my grandmother are sisters. Please email me. I am eager to share information with you. :-)
