Found Jacob & Samuel
in a Polk Co Tax assessment book taken Sept. 1863. Also found Jacob &
John W. in an 1854 tax assessor book (Polk Co). Lundy Crocker was also
there. He was the Crocker I found living next to Seaburn Brewer in
Webster Co MO in 1870.
Also Civil war data:
Polk Co Loyalty Oaths 1862-1864. Jacob was listed among the men along
with William Clark & Jacob T., which I assume is Jr.
Eda was among the
women along with a couple of Elizabeth Brewer's & America and a Nancy L. Brewer next to
Hulda was America's sister
who married Will Clark after his wife died. It shows where America
filed claiming John W. dec'd Aug. 13 1863.This was the date the file
was claimed I believe. It has he was under Col Johnson M.G.
Samuel was listed
several times, once receiving $135.50 for horse claims while in Co. B
came from the ledger of Thomas A. Peters
Lundy Crocker is shown on the 1870 census as being born in TN
Iíve also found
Arthur and sons William & John & James Carson who married Keziah,
Elijah Bankston & Jacob Brewer all living in Shelby Co IL 1830 in
precinct 2. The Middleton family was there also. Hanson Middleton
lived alone next to a young Thomas Crocker (son of Arthur). Hanson
married Surena Lureny Brewer (oldest daughter of Jacob & Eda) on Oct
24, 1833 in Shelby Co. Surena died there on April 7, 1858 at the age
of 43. Jacob & Eda were in Polk Co MO at the time.
