Untangling the Solon BARTLETTs

A simple search of Ancestry.com for Solon BARTLETT shows me one problem we
have with this name, which I thought was surely unique -- there are at least
FOUR. I'm primarily interested in Solon Putnam BARTLETT, my husband's
gggrandfather, but it might be useful to chronicle the others, too. I'll put
them in order of birth.

A search of the 1860 finds not a trace of this Solon, and the only Bartletts
to be found in Louisiana are two women, apparently living with their
children, but both in the same Ward 11 of New Orleans:

No images here, because I haven't a clue if they are connected to this Solon,
or not.

The Ancestral File on FamilySearch.org lists a Solon Bartlett born 22 Nov
1811, in Bethel, Oxford Co. Maine, son of Peregrine Bartlett and Sally
MERRILL.
The GEDCOM can be downloaded from FamilySearch.

FamilySearch IGI has a Family Group Sheet for Solon born 14 Jun 1813 in NY,
son of Josiah Barlett and Alice F. Putnam, both also born in NY.
No
sources are cited, of course! This is our Solon.

Another group sheet lists a marriage to MARY M JENKS on 29 JAN 1840 in Mercer
County, Illinois. This marriage is listed in the Illinois Marriage Index.
Another group sheet has a marriage to DORTHEA CAPTULA SITES on 9 NOV 1848,
also in Mercer County, Illinois. I believe this marriage is also listed in
the Index.

the same as above?

I don't know why I can't find him in 1870.


Charles Solon b. 1840, Bethel, Oxford Co. Maine, s/o Ball & Marina, d.

Is this Charles Solon in the 1860 or 1870 Census'? Are these

She could have been married by 1900....If so, this is the same Solon as Solon

What happened to this Solon, b. 1850, son of Joseph G & Charlotte, and perhaps
grandson of Joseph and Betsy in the same house? Because the birth dates AND
place are different, plus the parent's names, I think this is a different
Solon below.

Solon born 1867-8 Massachusetts, son of John F. & Asenath, both b. MA. I
find no evidence of Solon after 1880, although I can find his mother until
1920!

enumerated with his parents John F. & Asenath.

Damn the lack of an 1890 Census! By 1900, I see Solon's older brother Frank
and his wife Bertha and children still living in Boylson. 19 year-old Chester
is Frank and Solon's little brother. So it seems that father John F. is
either so old he cannot support his young son, or has died. Can this be href="">Solon in 1900? Name: C S Bartlett

Frank & Bertha are in Leominster MA in 1910; I don't see Clarence.

By 1920, Asenath, 80, is living with her daughter Nancy and her
family in Worcester MA. In 1930, I do see an Asenath Bartlett, but she's a
toddler living with her parents and grandmother in Vermont, and her father
was born in Vermont as were his parents. So a connection is not likely.

no father's surname is given, so this could be Mabel's maiden name. It shows

Ferris/Farris BAYSINGER, Jennie PATTERSON and their children


Ferris Baysinger is the oldest child ofElias Henry Baysinger, who was born 26 Dec 1832 in Breckinridge Co. Kentucky, son of Peter Baysinger and Elizabeth RICE.

Elias first married 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.

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. c1849 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.
Robert's SSDI record: ROBERT BAYSINGER, 4 Jan 1882 - Jul 1963. Last residence: Missouri. SSN: 491-42-3944, issued: Missouri
Pearl Eivins: PEARL EIVINS, 18 Aug 1883 - May 1972. Last residence: Osceola, Clarke Co. IA 50213. SSN: 500-07-6443, issued: Missouri. I don't see Olive.

Here is Jennie with her family in 1880, shortly before she and Farris married:

Perhaps this is Ferris? in the 1880:

I read the entire township, and this is the only possible fellow. Not a good match, but -- where is he in 1880? If this is him, he's no help to find Margaret JONES in 1880, either!

Doris Ceradsky says that Ferris and Jennie and their children homesteaded in New Mexico for four or five years, but spent most of their lives in Clarke Co. Iowa and Harrison Co. Missouri. I searched the GLO site for New Mexico and did find John's Land Patent http://valorie.zimmerman.googlepages.com/JohnBaysingerLandPatent.GIF in Roosevelt Co. NM and one for Pearl Eivins in the same county. I did not find records of Farris or Robert on GLO.

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:

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:

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?

> ..... 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

Using Batch Numbers and the IGI


What are Batch Numbers and how are they useful?

You will find Batch numbers in IGI (International Genealogical Index) records on the FamilyHistory.org website, or researching at your local Family History Center. Here is a bit of expanation from Rhonda McClure, from an old Family Tree Finders post. Start with the fiche
"IGI Batch Number Index" ...still available at your local Family History Center .... is a valuable tool when trying to understand the origins of any entries in the IGI. This is also the fiche you [will] use for converting the batch number manually. The fiche is useful when you have printed out information from FamilySearch.org and have many of those to check. If you are doing your research at the Family History Center, then it is easier to just print out the entries (use the F2 function to save a group of them to print to a single page) as that will give you the film numbers.

You can then take the film numbers and search either online or in the FHC and see exactly what the film is about. For a detailed chart about this you may want to see an article I wrote on this over on Genealogy.com. It was in answer to a similar question, but offers a chart of the more common batch numbers and what type of resource they refer to. You can see that article at http://www.genealogy.com/genealogy/heard070199.html.

John BAYSINGER, Viola, Minnie and children


John BAYSINGER born Dec 1872 Indianola, Warren County, Iowa, died 4 May 1942 Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa. John was the son of Elias Henry BAYSINGER and Sarah Maria GOOSIC. He and second wife Minnie are buried Laurel Cemetery, Des Moines, Polk Co IA.

Married 1. Viola STEPHENS born 20 Aug 1874

Marriage license issued 3 Jul 1893. Thomas E. Parker, age 31, attested in an affidavit to John being 22 and Viola being 19, therefore of legal ages (Book H, page 92, Warren County Records).

Warren County Marriages for Certificate #161: John Baysinger and Viola Stephens were united in marriage 3 Jul 1893 by Elder D.W. Shackles at his house, witnessed by Mrs. R. Shakle (not Shackles?) and Ann Jones. Marriage recorded 2 Oct 1893, along with several others performed by Elder Shackles.

Viola filed for divorce Oct. 11 in the District Court of Warren County. Judgment, No. 1149 granted 20 Nov 1893. Viola was represented by attorneys McGarry and Brown. John Baysinger didn't contest the divorce. He paid the various fees connected with filing, attorneys, trial, etc., amounting to $5.50. The final entry on the page indicates that he didn't pay that $5.50 judgment until 24 Nov 1900, however. Copies of these records are in the possession of cousin Terri. Viola married 2. John HANOUSEK.

Their children:
  1. Arthur born 27 May 1894 Otter Township, Indianola, Warren Co. IA, married 5 Jun 1925 Sylvia Viola HANOUSEK in Everett, Snohomish Co. WA, died 12 Aug 1990 Everett, Snohomish County, Washington.

    He is enumerated with his wife Lovey, and sons Kenneth & Roland, ages maybe 2 & 9mos and 1 & 9 mos? Lovey b. Missouri, sons b. Iowa

    SSDI: KENNETH L BAYSINGER, 14 Sep 1927-27 Apr 1995. Last res: Roseville, Placer Co. CA 95747. SSN: 480-20-6312, issued Iowa.

    After Ralph's death, Lovey married an UMPHLEET. See the thread starting here: http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=message&r=rw&p=surnames.baysinger&m=200. I think I might have mis-interpreted this, and Lovey was born UMPHLEET, married Ralph, then a DENNIS?

    Yes, I was wrong. Here she is with her family in Grundy Co. Missouri in 1910:

  10. Charles b. 24 Nov 1909, d. 15 Apr 1995.
    SSDI: CHARLES W BAYSINGER, 24 Nov 1909-15 Apr 1995. Last residence Des Moines, Polk Co. IA 50317. SSN: 719-18-3343, Long-time or retired railroad workers

    I don't see Charles in 1930.

  11. Ray b. 1911 died in infancy

  12. Robert b. 12 Jul 1912 Pleasantville (Marion Co. IA?) - was not enumerated with the family in 1920.

  13. George b. 1 Nov 1914 Otter Township, Warren County, Iowa. d: 27 Jan 1916 Allen Township, Warren County, Iowa.

  14. Katherine b. 8 Aug 1917 Hammondsburg, Warren Co. IA d. 1936

    The Ancestry index finds no Katherine or Catherine Baysinger in 1930. My mother remembers her mother getting a black-edged envelope when she was very young, and then Anna either fainted or broke out in violent grief. She thought it might have been the announcement of her littlest sister's death. She had already lost so many brothers, and to lose her baby sister must have been heart-breaking. Mom had no memory of Katherine, but Auntie Kathleen had been best friends with her while they still lived in Iowa. What a sad loss.

The John Baysingers in the Census

  • No wonder I couldn't find any of them in the 1930 Census! Look how Ancestry indexed them! I found them first, and then tried to bring them up in the index:
