Leonard Stephens Letter, 12 Sep 1839

Beech Woods, Campbell County, Ky., 12th Sept. 1839

Dear Brother William,

I have seated myself for the purpose of giving you some melancholy intelligence.
You will recollect that in my last letter I stated that Father was in a very feeble condition. I now have to inform you, painful as the task is, that he is no more. He breathed his last on Saturday morning last a few minutes after sunrise. He has been gradually declining for a considerable time....
Mr. John Hughes , Napoleon's father in law, is also dead. He died on the 5th &
old Mr. Swindle is dead; he died about two weeks before Father....end of letter
(John Swindle (1746?-1839), from Culpeper, Virginia, had died 20 Aug.
He was the grandfather of two of William's daughters-in-law; see below. See Hetty Swindall Sutherland, et al., Swindall and Austin Families of Virginia and North Carolina (Clintwood, VA: [author], 1995)....
William and Elizabeth Nelson's children included Agnes Nelson (1804-1871), who married her first cousin, William Robinson Stephens (1802-1865); Thomas Nelson (1808-1886), who married Mary Ann Swindell (1817-1895); Lewis Lunsford (1813-1843), who married Emily Swindell (1820?- —); and Absalom Waller (1815-1889), who married Eliza Jane Hull (1820?- —).

     He was born on 11 July 1808 in Boone County, Kentucky, USA.1 Thomas married Joyce Ann Riddell in Boone County, Kentucky.1 Thomas married Mary Ann Swindell on 11 February 1834 in Monroe County, Missouri, USA.1
     He died on 12 December 1886 in Monroe County, Missouri, at age 78.1 Thomas Nelson Stephens was buried in Stephens Cemetery, Middle Grove, Monroe County, Missouri, USA.1
     From his Find A Grave memorial page:
Thomas Nelson Stephens established a farm in the East Bend neighborhood of Boone County, Kentucky in the area where he'd been raised. He married Joyce Ann Riddell of a large local family. She died in 1832, perhaps in childbirth. The couple had no surviving children.

By the following year he had established himself in Monroe county, Missouri living on the large farm of his father, William Stephens. He married Mary Ann Swindell on Feb. 11, 1834 in Monroe County, Missouri. They had 13 children.

In January, 1854, Tom & his father legally established a co-partnership. Then on January 31, 1865 William Stephens sold his large property to his son, to include all personal property, all the stock and farm equipment including two wagons, and all the grain and crops. William Stephens held back one grey mare named Dolly. For one year, William was to have use of a dwelling upon the farm which was not the main house. Tom was to keep his father in provisions for one year. The cemetery in which William & Tom are buried lies upon this land. The large home stood until 1988, altho it was uninhabitable at that time.

His daughter Theresa Elena Stephens married Robert Hairston Bassett & the young couple came to live on the Stephens farm which came to be theirs at the death of Tom Stephens. They raised a large family there.

[Methodology: Spelling, punctuation and/or grammar have been corrected in some instances for ease of reading and to facilitate searches of the database. Where the meaning is not compromised by adhering to the spelling, punctuation or grammar, no change has been made. Corrections or additional notes have been inserted within brackets or footnotes. Blanks appearing in the transcripts reflect blanks in the original. A bracketed question mark indicates that the word or words preceding it represent(s) a guess by me. Only materials pertinent to the military service of the veteran and to contemporary events have been transcribed. Affidavits that provide additional information on these events are included and genealogical information is abstracted, while standard, 'boilerplate' affidavits and attestations related solely to the application, and later nineteenth and twentieth century research requests for information have been omitted. I use speech recognition software to make all my transcriptions. Such software misinterprets my southern accent with unfortunate regularity and my poor proofreading fails to catch all misinterpretations. Also, dates or numbers which the software treats as numerals rather than words are not corrected: for example, the software transcribes "the eighth of June one thousand eighty six" as "the 8th of June 1786." Please call errors or omissions to my attention.]

     He was born in 1715 in Virginia, USA.1 Alternatively, he was born in 1720 according to the Kuhn Family history.2 Timothy married Rebecca Crease in 1742.2 Timothy Swindle was buried in Boone County, Kentucky, USA.3
     He died in 1790 in Madison County, Virginia, USA.1
     From Find A Grave memorial page so unreliable source unless supported by an attached photo of gravestone:
Germanna Colony member.

Born ca. 1715-1720 Va.
Married German descendant there.
We do not know his parents.
Name written as Schwindlen at Germanna Colony.
His lineage may be English not German.

Father of John Sr. who helped found Boone Cty., Ky. with other Germanna members.

Probably buried on his farm with wife, Rebecca Crees.
Married 1746 Culpepper, Va.

Children:
John Swindle Sr. went to Ky, m. Hannah Weaver/Weber

Micheal Swindle went to SC m. Elizabeth Utz

George Swindle was in Culpepper, Va in 1779, went to SC?
m. married 21 April 1790 in Culpeper Co., 1 Hannah Cornelius
2 Catherine Rasor
NOTES
About 1794, George Razor, Sr., his sons, Peter and Christian, son-in-law George Swindle, several members of the Swindle family and, possibly at the same time, Aaron Clore moved to the Abbeville district of South Carolina. Family legend states that George, Sr. died during the move and was buried along the way. In South Carolina, the family consistently became Rasor whereas the family name in Virginia became Racer.
Catherine Rasor, b. ca 1764 in Sussex Co., NJ, m. George Swindle 30 Jul 1786 Culpeper Co. In 1793 George Swindle sold his land in Madison Co. At that time his wife's name was Hannah. When George died 8 Sep 1812 in Laurens Co., SC his widow was called Hannah. The reason for the two different names is not clear [more comment will be made at the end of the series on the Rasor family]. The issue of George and his wife or wives is:
Milly Swindle, m. ____ Drummond.
Lucinda Swindle, m. ____Kendrick.
Timothy Swindle, no further information.
William Swindle, no further information.
Rebecca Swindle, no further information.
George Washington Swindle, no further information.
There were two George Swindles in the Robinson River community, one being a nephew of the other. On 30 Jan 1786, George Swindle married Catherine Rasor and, on 21 Jan 1790, George Swindle married Hannah Cornelius. It is believed that the marriage to Catherine was by the nephew, the son of Michael Swindle. Thus the family of Catherine (#6) here should be examined carefully.
The children of George moved about in several directions. Jacob seems to have stayed in Virginia. Peter moved to Indiana and his children were to be found in South Carolina, Indiana, and Missouri. Christian moved to South Carolina and one of his sons died in Florida. Susanna took the initiative and moved to Boone Co., Kentucky at an early date. Until Catherine's husband is clarified, it is not clear where she lived. George and his children seem to have remained in Virginia.

Susannah Swindle Clore went to SC and Georgia

Rebecca Swindle Fray stayed in Va. m. John Fray

Sarah Swindle Baumgardner m Frederick Baumgardner

the Sutherlands, Thora and William, who wrote about the Timothy Swindle Family in Beyond Germanna, vol. 7, no. 4.


New DNA results are in 2013. It seems to show that Timothy was NOT English nor related to Hyde Cty. NC Swindles/Swindalls.1
