Gunn, Jasper (I1413)
3 "He was Town Clerk in Suffield from 1682 to 1708 as schoolmaster and he was paid 20 pounds a year. He was brought to New England in 1638 when but two years old by his parents and became one of the original proprietors of Suffield, CT. with a grant of 50 acres on Feather St. in 1674. It is a tribute to the pioneer spirit in the Austin blood stream that his Great-grandson Moses Austin and his G G Grandson Stephen Austin were the founders of the first Anglo colony in Texas. It is for them that Austin Texas today bears its name."
Austin, Captain Anthony Sr. (I1310)
4 "His son John Rollin Ridge wrote the pseudo-biography of Joaquin Murieta that inspired the Zorro legend." --Wikipedia Ridge, John (I1359)
5 "In June 1839, Ridge, along with his father and Boudinot (who both had also signed the Treaty of New Echota), were assassinated in retribution for the subsequent forced removal of the Cherokee Nation and resultant deaths of over 4,000 men, women and children. John Ridge was stabbed 48 times, had his chest jumped up and down upon, and kicked repeatedly by the 25 members of Ross' faction in front of his wife and children." --Wikipedia Ridge, John (I1359)

8 "While at school in Cornwall he fell in love with Sarah Bird Northrup, and after two years convinced her parents to allow them to marry. However, the couple's New England community reacted angrily to the marriage of a Native American man and an American woman, and their unwillingness to accept his marriage forever altered Ridge's attitude toward American and Native American relations." --Wikipedia Family F431
9 "Zachariah D. Amos, third son of John M. and Catherine (Thompson) Amos, was born in Ohio, and when sixteen years of age accompanied his parents to Iowa. He came to Custer County in the spring of 1883 and took up a homestead of one hundred and sixty acres on section twenty-eight, township eighteen, range eighteen. He was married in Valley County, June 7, 1891, to Miss Arabella Love, who was born in Wisconsin, and for some time before her marriage had been a teacher in Nebraska schools. She had also homesteaded one hundred and sixty acres of land on section twenty-two, township eighteen, range eighteen, where she and her husband now reside. He has served for a number of years as moderator of the school board of district number two hundred and forty-two. Mr. and Mrs. Amos have three children living: Ailsa Bell, Maud L. and Frieda B., all at home. They also have in their household circle, Alice Emerson, whom they have reared since her infancy."

Amos, Zachariah D (I8)
10 1776: Joel Northrop, the youngest child of Amos Northop, Jr., of New Milford, Connecticut, and brother of Amos (Yale 1762), was born on July 27, 1753. After graduation he studied medicine in Danbury, Connnecticut, and acted for a time as Surgeon's Mate at the Military Hospital in that town.

While still residing in New Milford, on May 15, 1777, he married in New Haven Mabel Sarah, the eldest sister of his classmate Bird, and within the next two years he settled here as a physician and druggist. His reputation was unsavory, and although he was one of the original members of the Connecticut Medical Society, in 1792, he was expelled in 1804, for "making and vending nostrums contrary to the by-laws." He never had much general practice, and his practice as a specialist was hardly reputable. Much of his time was given to pecuniary speculations, but the large sums which these brought him were soon lost.

In 1794 he had the yellow fever, and in 1796 he removed to Branford. He returned to the city after a few yers, but late in 1805 went beyond the town line on the Derby road, within the limits of Orange, where he occupied a stone house which he had just built. Here he died, after a brief illness, of lung fever, on February 9, 1807, in his 54th year.

He had naturally a strong mind. His form was stout, and his muscular energy very great. It is remembered that he was an inveterate smoker, and had a strange passion for cats. Though hot-tempered and violent, he had strong domestic attachments. His only daughter died in child-bed in 1803, and one of his six sons in 1806. His own death seemed to be a result of these afflictions.

Two sons were graduated at Yale, in 1804 and 1811, respectively. His widow survived until Feb. 14, 1835, having entered her 79th year.

20 Around 1869, he hauled freight from Kansas City into Ft Scott before there was a railroad. Before there were public schools in KS, he ran a subscription school in a 1-room log schoolhouse where Lath Branch Cemetary is now located. After public schools, hewas one of the first teachers in Kansas to draw public school money. At one time, he owned a clothing store with his father-in-law on N. Main St in Ft Scott. He also had a grocery store on E. Wall St across the street west from the present YMCA.

Pearl Ethel Uber was born Oct. 9, 1889,
died December 11, 1917; She professed
religion and united with the Methodist church
at the age of about twelve years; was married
to J. W. Dobson April 26, 1907, to this union
was born three children, Delmer Ameredith,
Robert William and Erma Lusetta.

Ethel was a lovely Christian character,
devoted to her family and her church and an
untiring worker in the Lord's cause. She was
loved by all who knew her and was always
pleasant and kind. During her long illness of
six weeks with the typhoid fever, she was
ever patient and at the last regretted leaving
her husband and children but expressed her
hope and confidence that she would soon be
at home with Jesus.

The funeral was preached by the writer at
the home in the presence of a large crowd of
heart broken relatives and friends. The taking
of this loved mother, wife and sister from
those who prized her so highly was indeed a
trying ordeal..... J. H. Mahan

41 ELSTAN (or ELYSTAN) GLODRYDD , founder of the fifth of the 'royal tribes' of Wales, though scarcely anything is known about him, may serve as the heading of a concise account (compiled entirely from Lloyd, Hist. W.) of the later lords of 'Rhwng Gwy a Hafren' (between Wye and Severn) - the cantreds of Maelienydd and Elfael; pedigree in Lloyd, op. cit., 770. Elstan (Hist. W., 406) had a son, Cadwgan, who had three sons. One of these, Idnerth, also had three sons; of these, Madog (d. 1140) had five sons. Two of Madog's sons, Hywel and Cadwgan, were killed in 1142, and a third, Maredudd, in 1146; the other two, CADWALLON (d. 1179) and EINION CLUD (d. 1177), ruled respectively over Maelienydd and Elfael. They were not on good terms, and in 1160 Cadwallon seized Einion and handed him over to Owain Gwynedd, who surrendered him to Henry II; but Einion escaped from custody. In 1163 both brothers rallied to the banner of Owain Gwynedd at Corwen, and later both were homagers of the 'lord' Rhys ap Gruffydd; both, again, co-operated in the re-establishment of Cwm Hir abbey, 1176. Of Cadwallon's three sons, Maelgwn (who took the cross in 1188) d. in 1197; his son Cadwallon d. in 1234. Einion Clud had two sons: the elder, EINION (AB EINION CLUD), usually known as 'Einion o'r Porth,' is said to have m. a daughter of the 'lord' Rhys, took the cross in 1188, and d. in 1191. In the 13th and 14th cent, the house of Mortimer (q.v.), which had from an early date encroached upon the lands of the Elstan dynasty, succeeded eventually in acquiring complete possession of them.

48 From Biographies of Miller County Persons


Fetna Slawson Jones was born 30 March 1850 in Jasper County, MO near the town of Sarcoxie. She was a daughter of Joseph Arnold Slawson Sr. and his first wife, Celia Williams, both natives of North Carolina. Both were born about 1812 and according to Mormon Church records, married in Wake County, NC on January 25,

The Slawsons came to Miller County from southwest Missouri (near Sarcoxie, Jasper County) after the Civil War and located in the Brays Mill area. Before coming west to Missouri, they had stopped off in Kentucky on their way from North Carolina where a couple of their children were born. Some of their children included: Katherine Slawson b. c/1833 in NC; Haywood Slawson b. c/1835 NC; Lowry A. Slawson b. c/1839 KY; James Slawson b. c/1841 KY; Sarah Slawson b. c/1847 MO. and Fetna Slawson b. c/1850 MO. Later more children were born to Joseph Slawson Sr. and a second wife including Joseph Arnold Slawson Jr (born in Jasper Co., MO in 1854).

Fetna Slawson married William Marshall Jones in Miller County 3 March 1867, the marriage performed by Rev. Thomas Owen Workman, a circuit-riding preacher of central Missouri. William Marshall Jones was a son of Henry and Nancy (Davis) Jones who had moved to Pike Co., Illinois by 1832 because they married there on April 5, 1832. Their marriage was performed by Rev. John M. Davis, the father of Nancy. The Jones and Davis families came on to the Big Richwoods of Miller County in the late 1830s and lived near one another in the census of 1840.

William Marshall Jones was born in Miller Co. 9 Apr 1849. He was one of nine children born to Henry & Nancy. I do not know where Henry and Nancy are buried. There is no record for them in any of the cemetery records. He died c/1874 and she lived until 1902. They are probably buried in unmarked graves in either the Old Brays Cemetery or the Brays Union Cemetery. Fetna (Slawson) and Wm. Marshall (called Marshal) continued to live in the same area of the Big Richwoods in the Brays/Alder Springs community. The Jones' lived there for several generations but most of the Slawson family evidently moved elsewhere. Fetna had a half-brother, Joseph Arnold Slawson Jr., who lived in the Brays Mill area and at one time operated a grist mill in the area. I believe he may have run and operated the old Brays Mill before it was known by that name.
# Fetna and Marshall became parents of several children including:
# 1. Laura A. Jones 1867-1889 m. John H. Thompson
# 2. Sarah Ella Jones 1870- m. Wm. T. Yoakum
# 3. Joseph N. Jones 1871-1967 m. Mishia F._________
# 4. Nancy E. Jones 1874- m. Albert S. Sloan
# 5. Sophia F. Jones 1876- m. George Clinton Bilyeu
# 6. John Thomas Jones 1879-1960 m. Elizabeth Ardora Irvin
# 7. James Walter Jones 1882- m. Leftie Morrow
# 8. Otis/Ottie M. Jones 1884-1958 m. Martha Jane Sloan
# 9. Wm. Gordon Jones 1886- m. Maude Crismon

Marshall Jones died at the young age of 36 years leaving Fetna alone to rear their 9 children. He died of typhoid pneumonia on 2 Dec 1888 and was buried at the Morrow Cemetery (today known as Brays Union). I found record of his death in an old book at the Miller County courthouse. Between 1883-1891, both birth and death records were kept by Missouri counties and Miller Co. has their records in an old book in the County Clerk's office. About 1896, when she had been a widow for about 8 years, Fetna married an older man who lived in her neighborhood. His name was Elijah Dake and he was 25 years older than Fetna. His first wife, Eliza (Lawson) Dake, had died after giving birth to at least 7 children: James, Matilda, Mary, Harvey, Sarah, Perry, and Rebecca. I do not know how long Fetna was married to Elijah. He died sometime after 1900. Fetna Slawson-Jones-Dake lived to the age of 86 years and died at her home in the Alder Springs/Brays area on October 13, 1937. She was survived by 8 children (her oldest daughter, Laura Jones Thompson, died in 1889). She was buried beside her first husband, Marshall Jones, in Brays Union cemetery where many other members of the Jones family are buried.

CAPT. W. A. SHANNON is a native of New York, and was born in Livingston County, August 5, 1816. When twenty years of age he came West, and engaged in steamboating on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, eventually settling at Hamburg, Ills., where he was engaged in mercantile pursuits until 1851, when he removed to St. Louis, carrying on business in that city up to 1855, when he became identified with the interests of Leavenworth, Kan., five years. He came down to Breckenridge, now Lyon County, and engaged in farming on Dow Creek. Here he was set upon by the noted Quantrell in one of his raids, and deprived of all his available effects. Mr. S. immediately went to Fort Scott, and entered the United States service, being appointed Deputy Property Clerk in the Quartermaster's department, and commissioned Captain of the employees in this department, who were regularly organized and drilled. In this capacity he served until the close of the war. He settled at Fort Scott, and was elected Clerk of the District Court, holding the office two terms. In 1870 he was appointed by President Grant, Receiver of Public Money for the Arkansas Land District, and that year came to Augusta, where the land office was established. When the land office was removed to Wichita two years latter, Mr. S. resigned, and since that time has held the office of Justice of the Peace in connection with operating a large tract of land. He is a member of the Masonic and Odd Fellows orders. Of the latter he has been P. G., R. S. G. in U. S. For the past ten years he has been secretary of the Masonic lodge in Augusta. In the I. O. O. F. he was prominently connected with establishing the order in Kansas, and had the honor of calling to order the first lodge in the State, which is known as Leavenworth No. 2, of Leavenworth, Kan. In organizing lodges in Northeastern Kansas in those primitive days, Mr. S. traveled by team from town to town, and did as much in establishing lodges as any man in the State. He is a member of the G. A. R. and Quartermaster of the I. E. King Post No. 105. He was married in Hamburg, Ill., to Miss H. Mary Miner. By this union they have three children, now living.
