101 "POLY" ADAMS, PIONEER OF CHRISTIAN COUNTY DIES AT HOME IN SOUTH FORK WHERE HE LIVED FOR 54 YEARS Napoleon Adams, better known as "Uncle Poly" Adams, died last night at eight o'clock Thursday night at his residence, seven miles west of Taylorville after a lingering illness of a complication of diseases.

Mr. Adams enjoyed a unique distinction of having lived over half a century on one farm, In the community where he resided he was highly esteemed and manyy will mourn his death. He was born Jun 20, 1832, in Washington County, Ind., and at his death was aged 77 years, 10 months and 29 days. When he was 5 years of age, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frances Adams came to Christian county and settled in South Fork township. In the succeeding 72 years South Fork township has been his home. Fifty-four years ago he purchased the farm on which he resided at his death, and he had ever since made his home. Foe many years he and his wife have been spending their winter in Pensacola, Fla.

Mr. Adams had been a farmer all his life and a very successful one, to amassing considerable wealth. He retired from active life about fifteen years ago. Fifty years ago last March Mr. Adams was united in marriage to Miss Emma Russell, who is still surviving. One child, Ethel, Adams, who married W. R. Richardson, and passed away about seven years ago, was born to them. Besides his widow, the decedent is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Elmira Archer and Mrs. Mary J. Hufford, both of Taylorville.

103 "She married Peter Hilton, but I have learned nothing of her family. She visited at my father's home sometime in the seventies, and at that time she was quite old. I have a very vivid recollection of her for she was the first woman I over saw smoke a pipe. Her home was in Bunker Hill, Illinois at that time."

106 "The Easleys were of French Hugenot descent and came to Virginia at a very early day. In 1782 some of them moved to Sullivan County, Tennessee and from there into Middle Tennessee. The family, I believe, eventually moved to Illinois. I think one of the daughters married a Slaughter."

107 "They had a total of 12 children; 7 reaching maturity. A huge 6 footer, he was very athletic. A story is told that after a coon hunt, the other young men bantered him into lifting a gentle gray mare onto his shoulders. He walked 9 steps before breaking down. Another time, when hunting for bear during the fall of the year, his dogs scared up a particularly fat and lumbering creature which was too fat to climb a tree. It lumbered from the mouth of White Day Creek to Threefork Creek, a distance of several miles, with the dogs in pursuit. Jim, sprinting behind, realized his mountain rifle was not powerful enough to kill the bear, took his butcher knife, and rushing the bear, plunged the knife in [clear to the hilt].

He was Capt. in the War of 1812, and was Major Commander of Ft. Meigs, Ohio. Its said he killed the last 2 Indians around Fairmont, Marion Co., WVA, by tricking them into putting their hands into a log he was splitting, knocking out the wedges, then crushing their skulls. A wild plum thicket is said to have grown from the buried Indians provision bag. (Some say stomachs.) There is supposed to be a monument to him around the site.

James was called "Buffalo Jim" when he was young. Whether this was because of his huge size and strength; or because of his birth on Buffalo Creek, we may never know. The last couple of generations claim it was because of the latter. However, one closer to his generation, claims it was because of his size. After the War of 1812, he was most often called "The Captain.""

109 (3) Vincent/Vinson has one other Robertson connection.

He vouched for the ages of both bride and groom when John Robertson m. Elenor (or Elanda - depends on who transcribed the record!) Curtsinger in Harrison Co., IN, in April 1821.

My best guess is that this John would have been a son of the Stephen Roberson who can be found near John Bell (Rachel's father, we think) in Crawford Co. on the 1820 census.

121 (on 1850 Census Crawford Co., Sarah Swift 80 b. VA living with Benjamin) 1850 United States Federal Census Name: Benjamin Yates Age: 50 Estimated birth year: abt 1800 Birth Place: Kentucky Gender: Male Home in 1850 (City,County,State): Union, Crawford, Indiana Family Number: 48 Benjamin Yates 50 Sarah Swift 80 Sarah Yates 30 Daniel Yates 28

On Ben, I updated my record to indicate his birth year as Abt. 1792/1800. The problem is we have two source documents which show these ages which we would normally use to justify DOB. It's hard to say which is right, do you believe him at age 50 saying he was born in 1792 or when he was 68 saying he was born in 1800. Unless you have some other facts that I don't remember I think this was my rationale for using this DOB for Ben Yates. Ron Yates 03/16/2008

Petition to sell his real estate is filed Oct 24, 1865 therefore I have used this as the best known death date. Ron Yates

Petition to sell real estate Elijah F. Roberson Administrator of the estate of Benjamin Yates deed: Be it remembered that heretofore to wite Oct 24 1865 this following petition was filed in the office of the Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas of Crawford County Indiana by said administrator to wite the undersigned administrator of the Estate of Benjamin Yates Deed would represent to the court of Common Pleas of said County that the personal estate of said decedent amounts to the probable sum of $340 and that the claims against the same so far as the sum has come to the knowledge of your petitioner amount to the probable sum of $1,400-leaving $1,000 of indebtedness over the value of the personal estate that decedent died the owner in fee simple of the following Real Estate in Crawford County Indiana The East Half of The North West Quarter, and the North West Quarter of the North West Quarter of Section 14, in Township three South, of Range 1 West, the East Quarter of the North East Quarter of Section 15 and the South Half of the North West Quarter of the North East Quarter of Section 15 same Town & Range containing in all one hundred acres.

And that decedent left as his heirs the following persons who are his nephews JOHN YATES, TOLBERT YATES, SILAS YATES, DANIEL YATES, ELI YATES, SILAS YATES, WILLIAM YATES and GEORGE YATES and the following persons who are his nieces CASA MARTIN, RACHAEL HUGHES, SARAH BELL, NELLIE PITTMAN and SARAH YATES who resides as follows and who are all of age and state the above are all the heirs of decedent who are known to your petitioner except the unknown heirs of Robert Yates deed, the unknown heirs James Yates Deed and the unknown heirs of John Yates and the unknown heirs of John Yates, Jr. and the heirs of Casa Yates and he therefore asks for an order to sell such Real Estate. E. F. Roberson Subscribed and sworn to before me this 24th Day of October, 1865 J. M. Lemonds CK

From this will we know that Benjamin Yates left no children as his heirs, only eight nephews, and five nieces, all of age in 1865. The nephews are named by first names only, so we may assume they were all Yates, John, Tolbert, Silas, Daniel, Eli, Silas, William, George. The nieces are given by their full names, Casa Martin, Rachel Hughes, Sarah Bell, Nellie Pittman, and Sarah Yates; Sarah Bell was Sarah Elizabeth Bell and Ellen Pittman.

After the heirs that were known to the petitioner were listed, he made himself safe, in the legal way, by adding "the unknown heirs of Robert Yates, deceased, the unknown heirs of James Yates, deceased, and the unknown heirs of John Yates and the unknown heirs of John Yates Jr. and the heirs of Casa Yates. So these, with the exception of John Yates, are the brothers and sister of Benjamin Yates, giving us, for the first time, a true Family Group Sheet, with John Yates their father.

126 (Roberson Family Stories August 2006-Remembered and written by: Jack Roger Roberson, b. 1931)

Ruben followed the tradition of his father, he had 15 children (he had 9...one of which died at birth...so 8 that lived). Besides my grandfather James, I knew Ruben better than any of his siblings. He once went to Montana to farm. I think he worked mostly for his brother Grover. The whole family went and they moved in a model T Ford truck. The engine gave out on the trip. They bought parts and pulled into a vacant field and overhauled it and then continued the trip.

During the World War II people were frozen on their jobs. If you quit they threatened to draft you in the army. Rube was working at the Charlestown, Indiana munitions Plant helping on construction. He wanted out of there very much. Finally they came around and said they would have a layoff the coming payday. Rube said put me in that layoff. When payday came they said they had changed it. It would be next payday. Rube reminded them he wanted to be in it. The next payday, the same thing happened and again and again until one day he told them "This time I am going ". When they came by and told him not that week he threw his hammer into the asbestos siding he was installing and it went all the way thru the wall and thru the building and thru the wall on the other side. They fired him, and he said I told you I was going.

I loved my uncle Rube so much I have nothing but fond memories of him. He ate his breakfast bacon very rare. He had a heart attack in his 50s. He said he threw up whole pieces of bacon that morning with not a tooth mark on them. He dieted and lived several years after that.

GEORGE W. ROBINSON is a native of Kentucky, and was born Dec. 25, 1830. He is a son of William and Sarah (Lyon) Robinson; the former born in New York in 1774; the latter born in 1764, and died in 1861. The older Robinson came from Ireland in an early day. He served in the Indian wars of the times, and was with Gen. Wayne at the battle of Fallen Timber in 1795, which virtually closed the Revolutionary war, though it had been declared over a decade before. He died in 1853, full of years and full of honors. He had settled in Kentucky, and in 1834 removed to Harrison county, settling in Boone township.

George W., the subject of this sketch, was the youngest of a family of six children. He was brought up on a farm, and received such education as the limited facilities of the county afforded. When the war of the Rebellion commenced he enlisted in Co. K, Fifty-eighth Regiment, Indiana Volunteer Infantry, Sept. 23, 1864, and was discharged June 30, 1865. He was with Sherman in his "March to the Sea," and participated in all the hardships as well as the fighting of the wonderful campaign. He was at the surrender of Col. Joe Johnston, and participated in the grand review at Washington after the war was over.

He then turned his arms into agricultural implements, and resumed farming. He was married April 17, 1856, to Miss Elizabeth Thompson, of Harrison county, and a daughter of Benjamin and Maria Thompson; the former a native of Harrison County, a farmer and an exemplary member of the Baptist Church; the latter, Maria Brown Thompson, was a daughter of Robert Thompson, who was born on the ocean when his parents were in transit to America. He settled in Kentucky, but later removed to Harrison county, Ind.

Mr. and Mrs. Robinson have had twelve children born to them, viz: Ann M., Lemuel C, Benjamin T., William W., Ulysses G., Henry, Ellondor, Cora S., Mary A., George A., James H. and Edgar R. Ann died Aug. 14, 1858; William W. died Feb. 13, 1864, and Henry died March 28, 1868.
