16 I2093  ???  Elizabeth  Abt 1794  May 1860  Elizabeth was a full blooded Cherokee Indian. She had first married a Francis Patterson. her maiden name is not known. Juanita Johnson of New Mexico, a descendant of Mary June McGrew and her husband Benjamin Maddox, sent photographs of Elizabeth McGrew to Esther McGrew Hardin in San Antonio. She did appear to be Native American from the photo.

Court records show Elizabeth's daughter, Twiney Pierce married Hiram McLaughlin, so Elizabeth may have been married twice before, to a Pierce and a Patterson. (Twiney might also have been previously married).  Twiney's marriage is recorded in Marion County, Mississippi, Marriage Record Book "A" 1812-1824, with "consent by James and Elizabeth McGrew for Twiney Pierce, daughter of Elizabeth McGrew.' Twiney married Hiram McLaughlin on 27 Sept 1823.

A divorce court in Marion Co, MS has a lawsuit between Francis Patterson and James McGrew about support for Twiney Pierce.

Wynena McGrew writes that she died of inflammation after being ill for 25 days in Limestone County, Texas.

FindAGrave notes that "Elizabeth's maiden name has been found as "Meuse", "Muse" and "Mews". You will also find trees listing her with the maiden name of "Hegler/Haglar" but we've been told by those researching her line that "Hegler/Haglar" was not her maiden name." The Hegler/Hagler confusion likely arises due to the fact that a grandson, also named Reese Mathews, married Liddie Elizabeth Hegler/Haglar.

Also shown on some trees as Elizabeth Burroughs.

23 I25592  ???  Equilla  Between 1760 and 1762  Aft 1860  Mark Freeman's notes for Equilla Byler

Her surname, often repeated, is not certain. May be Aquilla Bierly.

She is also called Aquilla Byler, or Equilla Tiner (1850 census, listed as 90 years old; 1860 census, 98 years). She likely married 2nd Mr. Tiner.

Abraham & Jacob, were neighbors of the McLemores in Bedford & Giles Co. TN. When Amos McLemore bought land in Giles Co. in 1812, Abraham Byler, Jr. was one of the chain bearers for the survey. When Amos sold land there in 1816, Jacob Byler was a witness to the sale.

Byler is often described as a Swiss name, descendants of the Beiler family that immigrated from Bern, Switzerland to Pennsylvania. One family was that of Jacob Franklin Byler, born about 1765 in Pennsylvania - went with his parents to (now Rowan Co.) North Carolina where he later married Bathsheba Oxford, daughter of Samuel Oxford and Bathsheba Barrett.

Samuel Oxford's wife Bathsheba Barrett was the daughter of Jonathan Barrett (Perrot) and Jar Fly Jarman, said to have been a full blood Catawba Indian.

Some of the descendants of this family went through Tennessee. There is not a known link to this Equilla Byler. A lot of info is available on the Byler family.

When Amos McLemore bought land in Giles Co. in 1812, Abraham Byler, Jr. was one of the chain bearers for the survey. When Amos sold land there in 1816, Jacob Byler was a witness to the sale. It is possible that the surname for Equilla / Aquilla was taken from this, and not a marriage record.

A two page document entitled "McLemore History" by Rueben McLemore, Jr." states that when Richard McLemore "came to Lauderdale county he brought with him an old relation, a Mrs. Tiner. When she died he buried her behind the church he had built. One after another his family was added to the same plot until, after some time, the McLemore Cemetery was instituted and given to the usage of the public." The McLemore Cemetery is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and is located at the corner of Sixth Street and Tenth Avenue. Others buried there include victims of the 1871 riot and the 1878 yellow fever epidemic. 
24 I32188  ???  Esther  Abt 1800  Yes, date unknown  Her maiden name is said to have been Bramlett or Bramblett.  STR06 
25 I20926  ???  Faith  Bef 1703  Bef 1771  Mark Freeman indicates that her maiden name : "might be Howell, Harrison, and Burwell...among others.  McLemore, Harrison and Burwell names are linked through marriage, and include ancestors of the Presidents Benjamin Harrison and William Henry Harrison. Faith Magee/McGee is also suggested as a possibility in "B. F. McLemore"

James L. McLemore, III, in a posting to  notes that her maiden name is "possibly Edmonds, probably not Briggs or Magee." In his book, James explained that "one of her oldest grandchildren was named Howell, a family name or surname used frequently in the Edmunds and Briggs families as a given name; both of these families were related to Thomas Blunt (oldest son of Henry Briggs's first wife Mary, and father-in-law of Howell Edmunds) with whom, as already stated, the early McLemore family had had a close connection." (James L. McLemore, III, p. 55).

Jim White, another researcher, states that her maiden name was Briggs.

Faith's renunciation of John's will gave her a widow's life right in the homeplace, but she apparently died by 1771 when we find the last Virginia reference to Joel, the sale of his father's homeplace. The deed for transfer, dated March 6, 1771, and recorded March 21, 1771, was from Joel McLemore (without a spouse joining in) of "Coleton County" (Craven County?), South Carolina, to Adam FOY of Sussex. This deed (Sussex Deed Book D, p. 317) was witnessed by Burwell McLemore, among others. (James L. McLemore, III, p. 59).

30 I25625  ???  Isabella Ann  Abt 1828  Yes, date unknown  Most McLemore researchers show her as ROBERSON or ROBERTSON.

Carol Carvalho  ( writes that she is not sure that Richard McLemore's 3rd wife was born Isabella Ann Roberson, however. After doing some research, she believes she is really Isabella Ann HAWKINS who was married first to a Roberson/Robinson.  Her parent were John S. and Cassa Hawkins (her family line).

One of the reasons that Carol believes this is because she is listed in the 1880 US Population Census, Lauderdale Co., MS, p. 2B (p. 43B), ED 91, En. Date: 6/5/1880. T9-653 with the following information:

McLemore, Isabella..W..F..52..wife..Keeping house..AL..KY..GA.." (b. ~ 1828).

Carol knows the following: John S. Hawkins was born in KY and his wife Cassa was born in GA.  She knows that Isabella is their daughter and was born in AL somewhere between 1826 and 1832.  She married 1st a Benjamin Robertson/Roberson/ Robinson on Feb. 2, 1868.

Please email Melinda McLemore Strong ( and./or  Carol  Carvalho ( if you have additional information that can either prove or disprove this.

39 I4042  ???  Mary  Abt 1800  Aft 1860  The McDaniel/Scarborough/Lutman tree on WorldConnect INCORRECTLY shows her as Susan Mary McShan of Union, South Carolina.

Several member trees on have this incorrect information as well.

The maiden name of Daniel's wife, Mary, has currently NOT been proven.

In an undated clipping titled LOCKHART ADDS TO HAWTHORN HISTORY from the JASPER NEWS BOY, provided to me by Kenneth Morgan, Carolyn Lockhart writes:

"...DANIEL (born 1802 in North Carolina) and MARY MORGAN....were Cherokee Indians and are buried in the woods at Roganville in Jasper County... "

In a letter to Melinda Strong, dated 4 September 1999, Carolyn further speculates that Mary Morgan could be "a Proctor because the Jone's witnessed a will in the adjoining county to Decatur for a Thomas Proctor. It is my personal belief (I never researched) that was not feasible to register White-(Native) American marriages...they were frowned upon."  It is interesting that marriage records can be found for all of Daniel's brothers, but no record can be located for his marriage to Mary. Carolyn added that "when Elizabeth was born in North Carolina in 1830--the family in North Carolina were running from the government who was about to push all the Indians to Oklahoma in 1836, so they packed up & headed for Georgia---because the Jones took part in running the Creek Indians out of Georgia in 1838."

Jo Ann Lee Gartig wrote, on 12 September 1999, that "All of my life I have heard that there was an Indian somewhere in the Lee family, but none of my aunts or uncles  knew which branch. It was a surprise to hear it was not on the Lee side, but the Morgan side, which I had never suspected. I learned from Bonnie Jones Smith (great granddaughter of Elizabeth Morgan and chairperson of the Newton County Historical Commission) that it was Mary, wife of Daniel.  Bonnie's older sister, Verbal, who died in an auto accident about 1995, told Bonnie that Mary was an Indian. It seems that when Verbal was in her early teens, her grandmother Sara Jane told her about her Cherokee Indian grandmother."  Robert Wall of Pearland was also told tales by his grandmother of the Morgan's Cherokee ancestry while he was growing up.

In order to attempt to help prove the numerous family stories that Mary was a full blood Native American, a direct female descendant of Mary's volunteered to take an mtDNA test.The test was done by FamilyTreeDNA in Houston. They tested the mtDNA for HVR1 (16001 to 16569). The test was designed to show her mtDNA, any differences from the Cambridge Reference Sequence, and the meaning of probability between matches. The test would pinpoint which of the "The Daughters of Eve" Mary and her direct female descendant could be traced back too, as well as identifying the ethnic and geographic origins, both recent and far distant. Among other features, this test would indicate matrilineal Native-American Ancestry, and which of the 5 major groups that settled in the Americas were the most probable ancestors.

The volunteer had the following line of descent from Mary:

Mary* (Unknown), wife of Daniel Morgan
Elizabeth* Morgan, wife of Sion Jones
Sarah Jane* Jones, wife of Henry Cochran Jones (not related)
Ida* Jones, wife of Charles Gibson
DAUGHTER of Ida and Charles (private)
GRANDDAUGHTER of Ida and Charles (private)

The mtDNA results came back as HV, or Helena, a primarily European haplogroup, most prevalent in Western Europe. The single difference from the Cambridge Reference Sequence was CRS 16311 C. The HV results preclude Native American ancestry on the matrilineal track -- the haplogroup would have to be A, B, C, D or a variety of X to show matrilineal ancestry as Native American. Therefore it appears that Mary Morgan's mother WAS NOT a full blooded Native American. It is still possible, however, she had native american ancestors, but if so it was not through her direct maternal line.

We do now know that Mary's maternal line reaches back to the Helena Clan. Helena is from the Greek and means "light." This clan's descendants are the most numerous in Europe, having started 20,000 years ago from a hunting family in the Dordogne region of the ice-capped Pyrenees in southern France. As the climate warmed, Helena's descendants trekked northward to what is now England, some 12,000 years ago. Members of this group are now present in all European countries.

Prof. Sykes and Oxford University researchers in England have identified seven ancestral matriarchal groups from which all Europeans appear to be descended. Every European can trace his or her evolutionary history back to the seven ancestral mother groups, also referred to as the Seven European Daughters of Eve. Sykes et al obtained buccal cells from 6,000 individuals and analyzed the samples using the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis. It is known that mtDNA mutates at a very slow rate, such as 1 mutation in every 10,000 generations or 20,000 years. So they figured that the women would have lived between 8,000 and 45,000 years ago. What is amazing is that all seven of the genetic groups appear to be descended from the Lara clan, one of three clans that still exist today in Africa. This is called the African Eve theory. It was proposed in the late 1980's by Allan Wilson, Mark Stoneking and others. The African Eve theory states that all humans share a common African ancestor. Migration routes of the 7 daughters are at this site:

As of 2002, there are believed to be 36 distinct genetic groups worldwide. From Patrick Guinness, "In mtDNA, there are a maximum of 14 mutations between all humans (so far)." 
40 I18960  ???  Mary  Abt 1820  Yes, date unknown  Her maiden name might be Jones, or she might have been widowed from a Jones. At the time of the 1850 census, 6 year old Josephine and Octavia Jones were living with the Dandy family. They were living next door to the Mathew Jones family, also of North Carolina. If she was the widow Jones, then it would appear that only the youngest Dandy child, 1 year old Theodore would be hers. The other older children would likely have been born in Thomas by a prior marriage. Note the 6 year gap and age between 7 year old Martha and 1 year old Theodore.  STR06 
41 I6158  ???  Mary "Polly"  23 Jan 1805  13 Jun 1869  1850-She is recorded in the census of 1850 as Polly Gentry, born in Kentucky in 1805,

1860-She is recorded as Mary Gentry. Polly is a familiar form of the formal name Mary.

1870 - "Mary Gentry, 65 years of age, born in Kentucky, died in August of this year in Grayson Co., Texas."  Was this Preacher William's wife?  It certainly seems highly likely.

1871-Land records from Grayson County, Vol 38 pg 442 dated November 6, 1871 show that Mary Gentry owned, with her husband William G., 20 acres of land situated about one mile west of Sherman on the Gainsville and Sherman road at the time of her death. (Grayson Co, TX Vol 38 pages 442, 443 & 444)

Charles Strong located the following probate record:

Grayson Co, TX Vol 38, pgs 442-444

The State of Texas, County of Grayson

Whereas on the 13th day of June, 1869, Mary Gentry, Wife of William G. Gentry, departed this life in said County and State leaving as her sole & only heirs the following named children to wit, John M. Gentry, James C. Gentry, Cyrus M. Gentry, Minerva A. Gentry wife of William J. Gentry, Sally M. Hodges wife of Benjamin F. Hodges, Jesse A. Gentry and Mary E. Gentry; and also the said Mary, dec'd, at the time of her death owned as community property with William G. Gentry, a certain tract of land situated in said County and State about one mile West of Sherman on the Gainsville x Sherman road and more particularly detailed as the said Gentry suriviving Matrimonial partner of said Mary Gentry, desceased, as well as the heirs of the said Mary above named and who are all the lawful age to contract---being mutually desirous of settling the estate of said Mary and partitioning the same among themselves...have agreed with each other to partition said lands and to invest the title to the part set apart to each heir named in the portion so set apart and divest said heir of all interest in the remaining portion and they, the parties aforesaid, mutually agree that the followig plat and division of said lands illustrates substantially the division and partition agreed upon.

Witness our hands at Sherman this 6th day of November 1871

Could Mary's surname have been Miller? Her grandson by her son John Melton Gentry, William Miller Gentry, was clearly not given his mother's, Harpole surname, as his middle name. On the other hand it would have been quite reasonable for him to have received his paternal grandmother's surname.

They came with a large caravan, and all settled in Sabine County. The three Greer children were orphaned, and Sarah Williams, mother of Lewis Williams, took them in her home. When Lewis S. Williams, his family, and the other Williams families, Brownings, and Smiths came to Texas, the Greers came with them. They wereL David Greer m Martha Arnold; Jane Greer m Wm. M.

55 I26688  ???  Sarah  Abt 1830  Yes, date unknown  Based on the census records below, several researchers have shown her to be Sarah Alford Fortson, the daughter of Samuel Higginbotham Fortson and his wife Mary Alford. Mary Alford Fortson married second, William McLemore, Sr.

However this has not been proven. As seen above, Sarah A. Fortson was said to have been born circa 1837-1838 in Mississippi, whereas the widowed Sarah McLemore seems to have been born ca 1830-1831 in Tennessee. Additionally, Sarah Fortson would have given birth to William McLemore at the age of 12 or 13.

Sarah McLemor 70 F $125 North Carolina
Tobias    "      24 M Turpentine Maker North Carolina

Based simply on his name, 24 year old Tobias McLemore appears to be a son of Tobias McLemore, and grandson of Archibald McLemore, both of Sampson County.

The older Tobias McLemore, born between 1780 and 1790, can not be located on the 1850 or 1860 census. It appears he was already dead. However, there was NOT a son under the age of 5 listed in his household in 1840.

This made him a stepfather of Paralee McGrew. When Serena died, James French married the widow Caroline Breedlove, whose son Thomas married Paralee. This made him not only Paralee's stepfather, but also her stepfather-in-law.  STR06

Visitation will be on Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Lauber-Moore Funeral Home, Friend. Memorials have been established and may be directed in care of the family.

Bernard "Bernie" Joseph Ach was born June 10, 1936, in Milligan, Nebraska to Joseph and Blanche (Fritz) Ach, the first of two sons and passed away Wednesday, February 11, 2015 at the Friend Manor in Friend at the age of 78 years, 8 months and 1 day. As a young boy, his family moved to Friend and he attended Friend Public School and graduated with the class of 1954. He furthered his education at the University of Nebraska and received his law degree in 1960. He was united in marriage to Margaret Kraus on June 15, 1957 and to this union three daughters were born, Deborah, Donna and Dineen. He was later blessed with a second marriage to Sharon (McGinnis) Haase on August 11, 1968 in Belleville, KS and two more daughters were added to his family, Kathie and Laurie.

After graduation, he joined his father, Joseph, in the Ach law firm. Bernie served as Saline County Attorney from 1962 to 1970. He continued practicing law in Friend until his retirement in 2004. His community involvement included serving as the City Attorney for Friend and other area communities. He was also the attorney for the Friend School District.

Bernie was active in the State and National Bar Associations, Pheasants Forever and Ducks Unlimited. At a young age he taught himself the art of taxidermy as he enjoyed hunting, fishing and other activities that brought him out into nature. Bernie loved polka music and taught himself to play the accordion. He also golfed in his spare time. Bernie collected decoys, and carved and painted decoys. Bernie started "Wildfowl History, LLC" a business for collecting, trading and selling various hunting, fishing and wildlife memorabilia, including hunting decoys, calendars and many other items.
