13 Ann's father died in 1829. His will, recorded in Washington County, Virginia, left Ann $50 which was to be paid by her brother Robert in items for her support.1
Court Record 1833 John Larimer's estate was settled in 1833. Court documents show an entry dated November 1832 whereby the estate was charged with the cost of defending a suit brought in Chancery by Samuel McGinnis "committee for Ann Larimemememer a dumb daughter of the testator."3 Ann died in Washington County, Virginia, probably in May 1859 (abstracted county death register). However her name also appears on the 1860 Federal census mortality schedule. She should not have been listed unless she died in May 1860 since the instructions were to supply death information for the 12 months ending June 1, 1860. However this was sometimes interpreted to include the entire previous calender year.4,2

Edna was born in Ashland, Oregon and into a ranching family, growing up she spent countless hours in the Southern Oregon mountains riding her horse with her dogs as her companions.

After graduating from Ashland High School Edna met her future husband, Robert "Pete" T. Rosenbaum, Sr. They were married in Reno, Nevada, in 1940. In 1941 the happy couple welcomed their only son into their life, Robert T. Rosenbaum, Jr.

Edna and Robert Sr. continued the family ranching in Ashland, Oregon on Edna's parents' ranches while Pete worked in the local sawmills. Upon Robert Jr. reaching graduation and taking over a family ranch in Powell Butte, Oregon, Edna decided to expand her future by going back and getting her teacher's degree at Southern Oregon College, in Ashland, Oregon. Edna stayed with her parents in one of their homes while Pete continued his work in the sawmills.

Robert Jr. and his wife Darlene were married and ranched a few years in Powell Butte, Oregon before starting their family. Three wonderful granddaughters were born, Rhonda Meyer, Brenda Beem, and Teresa Plank.

Upon graduating Edna and Pete moved to Potter Valley, California, where Edna began her 18 year teaching career at Potter Valley and Ukiah, California. Pete became a sawyer at the local saw mill and both Edna and Pete retired there.

At that time, Edna and Pete moved to Kuna, Idaho to be closer to their son and family. Pete passed away a few months after the move and Edna's faith helped her to reach out and gain wonderful friends in the Presbyterian Church in Nampa.

Edna also became extremely involved with many garden and flower clubs in the Nampa area. Edna's yard, was and still is a testimonial to Edna's green thumb. She had a passion for creating beautiful landscapes, gardening, and enjoyed creating hybrid iris. She met many wonderful people in the garden clubs that she attended and in the community.

Edna was also fortunate to have seven grandchildren: three granddaughters and four grandsons, Danica, Desiree, Ross, Brandon, Robert, Austen, and Gretchen.

101 From: "Jackson Cty Historical Association" <> Subject: [CHILDRESS-L] ATTN: GARY CHILDRESS re: MITCHELL CHILDRESS, SR. REV WAR APPLICATION FILE
Date: Mon, 17 May 1999 11:33:37 -0500THIS IS PRIMARILY FOR GARY CHILDRESS, but may be of
interest to others on the List:
Mitchell Childress, Sr., born Oct 1750 in Henrico Co, VA.
Moved from Amherst Co, VA to Wilkes Co, NC, and served in
Rev War from Wilkes Co, NC. His Rev War Pension
Application No. 7569 shows he was placed on the Roll of E.
Tennessee at the rate of $23.33 per annum to commence on
March 4, 1831. Mitchell Childress, Sr. died in 1844 in
Knox Co, TN. He was twice married: first to Hannah
Webb and later to Rachel Hendrix in March 1815 in Knox Co,
TN. His heirs were listed in Mitchell Childress' will,
and included, among others, his son, John K. Childress.
Mitchell Childress, Sr.'s will was probated in Knox Co, TN
in 1844.
A copy of a letter written on May 22, 1854, (AT THE REQUEST
OF JOHN K. CHILDRESS), by R. T. Scott, to the Commissioner
of Pensions, Washington City, reads as follows:
"I am requested by Mr. John K. Childers, who resides in my
neighborhood, by letter bearing date May 12, Inst(ant) to
make the necessary enquiry in the pension office in
relation to the Pension of HIS FATHER Mitchell Childers.
Said pension is in consideration of Rev. services under the
act of Congress 1832. I wish to ascertain the amount
paid, and the precise date at which his pension stopped,
and how much is due his heirs remaining unpaid, and any
other information concerning said pension furnished by the
? in your office, an early answer is desired. Your
obedient servant,
R. T. Scott
Agent for the State of Alabama"

NOTE ONE: The words in all caps were typed in caps to
show emphasis. Also, I typed the surname as spelled in
the original transcription. FYI, R. T. Scott was the
founder of Scottsboro, Alabama, the town in which John K.
Childress settled, married, raised his family, and died in
Jackson Co, AL.

NOTE TWO: John K. Childress, son of Mitchell and Rachel
(Hendrix) Childress, moved from Knox Co, TN to Jackson
County, AL when he was about 21 years of age. WHY???
John K. Childress purchased 80 acres of prime land in
Jackson Co, AL in 1836; therefore, he must have received an
advance on his inheritance from Mitchell and Rachel
Childress before he left E. Tennessee and headed for North
Alabama. John K. Childress served in the Creek Indian War
from June 14, 1836, until Aug 17, 1836, and served in the
Cherokee Removal in 1838. Both times he volunteered for
military service in Jackson Co, AL. Much of his personal
vitae has been obtained from his bounty land and pension
applications based on his 1836 and 1838 military service
record. He was well educated, taught school, served as a
school and church trustee, and was elected and served as
Justice of the Peace in Jackson Co, AL for a number of
years. He must have placed a great emphasis on classical
education, as all his children were well educated for this
locale and period of time. This is considered an
important factor, as very little emphasis was placed on
education in this area immediately after the Civil War.
Civil War destruction and reconstruction both took a heavy
toll on family finances. Due to necessity, most families'
primary goal was survival and the rebuilding of family
farms. There were no public schools, and education came
at a great price and sacrifice of what little income the
families were able to eke out of the good earth.

Childress, Sr.

122 In Claiborne County, Tenn. about the turn of the century there lived a man by the name of Buck Phillip s . He d i d n ' t like to work and his family was starving to death. Someone offered Buck a free bushel of corn, but it was refused because it wasn't shelled! So he was horsewhipped by local men, one of whom was my great-grandfather John Wesley Widener. He found out that the law was after him so he gathered up his family (my grandfather was a small boy then) and headed north into Kenentucky in the middle of the night. I remember my grand-dad telling me very clearly of his trip into Kentucky in a covered wagon. I've tried to find a story in the newspaper about the incident but all Tazewell, Tenn. papers and Cumberland Cap are few. Most
issues are missing. The story was told to me by different branches of thefamily so is fairly accurate."

125 It is the belief of this researcher that Lucy Clementine used her maiden surname throughout her life. No documentation can be found to support who were the father or fathers of her children. Some researchers have indicated her surname as Edwards but to date we have not found supporting information. Further research into her mother whose surname is Edwards is underway. McConnell, Lucy Clementine (I0795)
126 It took from early May to middle October to make the complete journey from the villages of Germany to the shores of America. The trip was a long, hard journey which took a huge toll of the immigrants, mostly children.
George Michael Eller came over on the ship "Phoenix" in 1743, and took his oath of allegiance on October 1743.The trip consisted of three parts: the journey from their village to the port of departure, usually in Rotterdam; the ocean voyage to aanother port in England; and the final ocean journey to America. It took approximately five to six weeks for the trip from their village to the port of Rotterdam, because they had about 26 custom houses to stop at on the way up to the coast. They had to stop for a few days at each custom house while the ships were being examined. Most of the emigrants money was spent just getting to Rotterdam, with the biggest share of the journey still ahead of them.
The second part of their journey was from Rotterdam to the final port of departure, usually in England. They were delayed here sometimes for weeks waiting for good winds and the countless inspections of their ships.
The third and final part of their voyage was the trip across the ocean lasting from 7-12 weeks. The people were packed into the ships as tightly as possible. Most slept on deck. There was a lack of proper food and water was contaminated. Diseases and fever, dysentery, typhoid, and smallpox were widespread, and the children were the first to die. The ships were infested with rats, who ate what little food there was and helped to spread the diseases further. There were frequent storms which lasted days and nights at a time, and many people were washed overboard. There was also a fear of being captured by pirates and hauled off to be sold as slaves in some other part of the world.
When at last the travelers reached the Delaware River with America in sight, they had still another wait, while the ships were once again examined. If disease was discovered among the people, the ship was put out at sea one mile till all signs of the infection were gone. After docking again, the immigrants were marched down to the City Hall where they gave their oaths of allegiance. This allegiance was forced upon them by the Governors of Pennsylvania whereby they had to denounce the German Princes and place their loyalties with the Governing Body of Pennsylvania. The Immigrants were once again returned to their ships where they were put up for sale. Those who were very rich paid their passage and were immediately set free. The other immigrants were bought and placed into slavery for a period of 4-7 years in order to pay their passage over. This was called the "Redeemtionary System". After this period of enslavement was served, the immigrants were freed and given "Freedom Dues" which were usually a few articles of clothing, and either a parcel of land, or some livestock. Marriage was only allowed when a payment of a goodly sum was made during these years of service, so most waited till their time was served before they married. Most of these "Immigrant Slaves" were treated fairly in exchange for good hard labor

There were many reasons why the Eller Family decided to leave their homeland to come to America. Excessive taxes were being placed upon them by the German Princes in order that they might build magnificent palaces and gardens like those of the FFrench Courts. The Thirty-Years War had left their land devastated, and the political and economic collapse of their Government followed close behind. Famines only added to their already endless burdens and left the land barren. The colonial land agents and ships companies thought it was a good time to encourage these beaten, bitter people to come to America, and propaganda was distributed throughout Germany. William Penn, who had been granted a large tract of land by King Charles II oof England as a payment of a family debt, was the most influential person in getting the German people to leave their homeland. His promise of complete religious freedom for everyone without government intervention, along with free grants of land to settlers who would live and work on the land for a certain number of years brought the German immigrants to America by the thousands to settle in Pennsylvania.George Michael Eller was granted 25 acres of land in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, on April 2, 1753. He later settled in Frederick County, Maryland, when he purchased a section of land called "Hammond's Strife", on April 14, 1773. This is recorded in Deed books, pp 96-98. This section of land contained 100 acres and bordered Little Pipe Creek which formed the border between Frederick and Carrol Counties. This property was located 10 miles NE of Frederick Town and just east of the town of Johnsville.

128 James Wesley Hand and Levisa Thomas Hand had no children, although it is likely she died in childbirth. Her death record is found by name Louisa Hand; apparently handwriting was not very good and difficult to read. Her father, James Thomas, and James Wesley Hand's mother, Susannah Thomas Hand, were siblings, so James Wesley Hand and Levisa Thomas were first cousins. Family: James Wesley Hand / Levisa Thomas (F0638)
129 James Wesley Hand was one of many men named "James Hand", so to differentiate him from the others, he was known as "Beaver", as he lived on Beaver Dam Creek. Hand, James Wesley (I1929)

Gordon Stanley Widener, WWII veteran of the United States Army, age 94, died Saturday, August 5, 2017 in Marion, Va.

Gordon, born in Washington County, Virginia on 19 October, 1922, was one of a big family (ten kids) who farmed in parts of Washington and Smyth County for years, He loved his garden and was a very good cook. He was always cooking some type of special pie to bring to family gatherings or to church. His deep faith was a large part of what made him the special person we all came to know and love.

He worked for the Brunswick Defense Plant in Marion , VA for many years and remained an active part of the ?Brunswick Breakfast? Group after his retirement.

A veteran of World War II, he was a Staff-Sgt in the 247th, General Patton?s Third Army. He was part of the unit that kept the front lines supplied with ammunition. Proud to have served his country in WWII, he made it his goal to sing the Natioional Anthem and Star Spangled Banner at every event he could in order to ?help people learn about and remember all the sacrifices that are made by our military to help keep our great country free.? He was a Lifetime member of the VFW, Post 466767, and regularly attended their gatherings as long as his health allowed. He made the trip with the Honor Flight that takes veterans to Washington, D.C. each year. When he took the trip to the WWII Veterans Memorial in Bedford, VA, he sang the National Anthem for the group that made that trip possible.

Because of his efforts to strengthen American patriotism he was invited to sing at many venues, to list just a few, PBS? Song of the Mountains; NHRA Nationals, at Bristol Thunder Valley Dragway; the Memorial Day observance at the Lincoln Theateeer in Marion, VA; Wytheville Community College?s Memorial Day Appreciation of Veterans service ; Bristol?s Ball Park where he had the honor of singing the National Anthem for the opening of the game on several occasions. But his favorite journey was one we made every fall for quiet a few years, across the mountain to the elementary and middle schools in Rich Valley, VA. They do a Veterans Day celebration and have a very nice program to honor the Vets. One young man there, Chaz Cassell, was such a dear friend to Gordon and always ate lunch with him and talked with him about his time in the military. Chaz?s respect for his service was such a neat thing to experience. That always made it such a special day for Gordon, he loved helping the young people understand what a great county they live in.

Gordon touched many lives and will be dearly missed by all of us who knew and loved him.

And, if you want to hear Gordon sing, please check him out on

169 Obituary
Ernest ?Ernie? Harry Grubb, 90, resident of The Renaissance husband of Ann Gilchrist Grubb went to be with his Lord Friday Nov. 29, 2019.

Ernest was the third child born to Burris Stanley Grubb and Leta Earnestine Griffith on a farm in the Rocklane Community, Johnson County, Indiana. He attended Clark Township High School and assisted his father in the operation of their farm.eed money to attend Franklin College in Franklin, Indiana by growing and selling tomatoes to an Indianapolis Farmers? Market. When one summer yielded a bumper crop, he was forced to hire his sisters and friends to pick tomatoes, paying them 10 cents per hamper.

At age 16, Ernie enrolled in Franklin College. His classmates were primarily veterans returning from WW II. He credited much of his work ethic with that experience, describing these older students as ?working hard and playing hard when theirsre through.? Sports writers in the area dubbed Ernest ?Ernie? as they reported his excellent performance on the Franklin ?Grizzlies? Basketball Team.

Ernie was inducted into the US Army in 1951 while teaching at the Spartanburg High School in Spartanburg, IN. An earlier back injury caused him to be given an honorable discharge early in his military career. He returned to Indiana to find ng jobs available, however a friend in South Georgia contacted him about an opening in a high school in Nahunta, GA. Later he accepted a teaching and coaching position in Coffee County, GA.

Ernie remained in the Coffee County area for 25 years, teaching and coaching for most of that time. He served as Dean of Boys at Coffee County High School 1959-1963. In 1963 Ernie was named Coach of the Year by the Georgia State Athletic Ass. During his time in Coffee County, he coached future touring golf professional Larry Hinson, and later enjoyed Hinson?s invitations to walk with him on some of his matches.

Later in 1963, Ernie left the education field to join Fleetwood Enterprises, a nationally known builder of manufactured homes. He served as sales manager at the Douglas, GA Fleetwood plant and later was promoted to General Manager of the plancb, IL. Returning to South Georgia, Ernie ran a Goodyear Store in Douglas for some time after leaving Fleetwood.

In 1963 Ernie married Gloria Hall Davis and adopted her two sons, Brantley age 3 and Michael 18 months. In 1965 their son, Stanley was born. The couple later divorced and Ernie returned to Indiana to live with his parents and help his mothereris invalid father. During this time he worked in retail sales and management.

Mutual friends introduced Ernie to a teacher at Indiana School for the Deaf. Ann and Ernie were married in 1977. Ann had 2 foster daughters, Pauline and Margie, who were sisters, both deaf. With influence from Ann and the girls, Ernie returnolge at Ball State University in Muncie, IN, and earned a Masters Degree in Deaf
Education. He took a position as high school history and social science teacher at the school, and worked as assistant football coach under Coach Lynn Frye. After Frye left to go into the business world, Ernie became head coach of the ISD team. Ernie?s ISD football team won the National Championship among schools for the deaf in both 1982 and 1983.

The couple retired from ISD in 1989 and relocated in Hendersonville, NC. After 25 years there, Ernie?s health issues sent them in search of a retirement facility where assisted living was available when he needed it. After a brief stay in Greeille, SC, they moved to another facility in Anderson, SC. There they became close friends with Susan Jackson, the marketing director there. When Susan accepted a position in Due West, Ann and Ernie followed her to The Renaissance Retirement where they have lived for 6 years.

Ernie and Ann have enjoyed singing Southern Gospel music together wherever they have attended church and in the retirement facility. They have been deeply involved in the Erskine College Ladies? Tennis Team?s Grandparent program, and have ses?Grandparents? to 3 young ladies, all from distant homes?Mikaela Bennett of Calgary, Canada, Marie Berghaus of Cologne, Germany and Luiza Souza of Brazil. Ernie enjoyed attending the ladies? practice sessions until his eyesight prevented him from following the ball. He has encouraged and ?coached? the ladies from the sidelines. At the Sports Awards Ceremony at Erskine College in the spring of 2019, the team awarded him with the first ?Ernie Grubb Fleety Award?. This award is to be handed down to an outstanding individual in Erskine?s Sports Program each year.

As new residents moved into The Renaissance, Susan Jackson would ask them to make a ?Senior Wish? which she then would do all she could to fulfill. Ernie?s wish was to coach another championship football team, so Susan and Ann went to work toehis wish made possible. In 2015 former football players from Ernie?s teams were contacted and a weekend ?reunion? was planned. Susan and Ann anticipated 5 or 6 men might make the trip to Due West. The men spread the word to the deaf community and a total of 29 of Ernie?s former players, 2 former cheerleaders, 3 retired teachers, his former head coach, Lynn Frye and a few wives and children descended on our little community to honor the coach! On Saturday morning the team had a ?scrimmage? with the local fire fighters as their opponents. The official for the game was former Due West mayor Lee Logan.

At a banquet in his honor, nearly every former player stood to thank Ernie for the influence he had been on their lives as adults. Nothing could have pleased Ernie more. He loved influencing young people to become responsible useful citizens.

Ernie is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Ann Gilchrist Grubb; sons Michael Stuart and Ernest Stanley Grubb of Mesa, AZ, a special friend whom he loved like a daughter Susan Jackson and several nieces and nephews. Preceding him in death weres p; his son, Brantley Davis; his sisters, Clara Jean Grubb Downey, Alice Jane Grubb Logan and Martha Ann Grubb Locke.

A celebration of life will be held on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019 at the Due West Baptist Church. Visitation will be in the church fellowship hall from 1:00 ? 2:00 PM with the service in the sanctuary at 2:00.

The family has requested donations be sent to Hospice House of the Piedmont, 408 West Alexander Avenue, Greenwood, SC 20646 in lieu of flowers.

176 Obituary for MARY M WIDENER
Mary M. Widener, 74 of Cincinnati, OH went to be with the Lord on March 16, 2020. She was born December 15, 1945 in Straight Creek, KY, the youngest Daughter of the late Myrtle and Henry Widener. She was the youngest of 13 children. Mary was much loved by her family and her loving caregivers and friends at Beechwood Home where she was a resident for 47 years. She moved into the Beechwood Home in October of 1972 and became family to the staff and other residents. Mary was fond of playining cards, supervising the receptionists, fasting lunches on Tuesdays and ordering fried chicken out on Tuesday nights. She loved strawberry milkshakes, playing Bingo and talking "common sense philosophy" with "sensible people". She loved playinng Black Jack and Bingo with her volunteer friends. She also loved going to the horse races and enjoyed a camping trip with some of the other residents and staff members of Beechwood. Her smile was infectious, but you also didn't want to make her mad.
She was small but mighty! She had many amazing friendships with staff and other residents.
But more than anything she enjoyed being with her very large family. She looked forward to attending the annual Widener family reunion every July. She always responded with a huge Mary Widener smile when staff checked in with her about the reuninion on the following Monday morning. To know Mary is to love her. She always had a big smile on her face and no matter what was going on in the rest of the world, she was happy. Though she was non-verbal, she taught us all so much. She showed us that beauty is on the inside. To listen to more than just words, to actually listen, to hear what people are saying and try to understand it. To stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves and always take care of family. To have a seense of humor and a compassionate heart. To always wear a smile and to Love! And yes, that Widener stubbornness as well. Mary is survived by too many Nieces and Nephews to count. She was a very special Aunt to all of us. She was preceded in death by her Parents Henry and Myrtle Widener; Brothers: Ralph, Corum, Jay, Ken, Curtis, Okes and Loy. Sisters: Anna, Aggie, Lucy, Minnie and Sarah. Mary will be laid to rest at Hughes Chapel Cemetery on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Due to our country?s circumstances, a Memorial Service will be held at a later date to be determined. Donations can be made in Mary?s honor to: Hospice of Cincinnati, PO Box 633597, Cincinnati, OH 45263-3597 or

193 Robert Larimer was born in Virginia circa 1790.3,4
Marriage 6 Dec 1810 He married Sally McKee on 6 Dec 1810 in Washington County, Virginia.5
The correct spelling of Sally's last name is not clear to me at this time. The abstracted marriage record spells it McReed. However a letter written by Sally's great granddaughter to Judge Redmond Cole states that Sally's surname was McKee. It might also be noted that the 1820 census for Washington County lists several McKee households but none for the surname McReed or McRead.6
Land-Buy 18 Jun 1816. On 18 Jun 1816 Robert appears to have purchased 2 tracts of land from his father [the deed was from John Larimer Sr. to Robert Larimer but no relationship was stated]. The larger of the two contained 174 acres; Robert paid $400 for it. The sale exempted the old house which was to remain in John's possession. Jane [John's estranged wife] was not included on the deed [at John's death she sued for her dower share].7
Cens-Sum Although the census records prior to 1850 only list the head of the household by name, some information can be inferred from the tally marks in the various age columns. Robert appears as the head of a Washington County household in al all 3 census years available for the county prior to 1850. In 1820 his household included 4 males under the age of 10 which would be consistent with Robert's first 4 known sons: Andrew, William, John and James. Robert would have been representnteted a as the male age 26 to 45. However 3 females under 10 are also listed. One was probably daughter Jane. Who were the others? Did Sally have 7 children between 1811 and 1820 or were there other young relatives in the household? Also present in 182820 were 2 females aged 26-45. One no doubt represented Sally. The other female was probably Robert's unmarried sister Ann. The household also included a female over 45 who was most likely Robert's mother. She and Robert's father John Larimer did not live together and John's will specified that he had assisted his sons John and Robert in caring for their mother.

By 1830 7 males under 20 were listed in Robert's household. They appear to match the expected ages for his known sons: Andrew, William, John, James, Isaac, Robert and Samuel. Five females under 20 were tallied. One likely represented Robert's daughter Jane. But who were the others? Two females age 30 to 40 were also listed. Presumably one was Robert's wife and the other was most likely his sister Ann. In addition Robert's mother was again most likely represented by the tally in the 80-90 year old female column.

Robert's 1840 household included 2 males age 5 to 10 that I cannot account for. Other tally marks appear to represent sons James, Isaac, Robert and Samuel. Robert's 3 older sons (Andrew, John and William) were enumerated as heads of their own hoouseholds in 1840. Jane Larimer [Robert's mother] was also enumerated as the head of a household in 1840. She was aged 90-100. A 40 to 50 year old female was tallied with her, no doubt representing her daughter Ann. And as might then be expected, Robert's household does not include an older woman in 1840. And it includes just one female in the 40-50 year old age range, presumably Robert's wife. The enumeration also includes 2 females aged 20 to 30; one would be Robert's daughter Jane who did not marry until 1847. Did Robert also have a daughter Margaret? The Washington County marriage records include the marriage of a Margaret Larimer to a David Denton in 1847.8,9,10
Marriage 18 Jul 1847 He married Rachel Debusk on 18 Jul 1847 in Johnson County, Tennessee.11
Cens-1850 13 Sep 1850 Robert and Rachel were enumerated in Washington County, Virginia, when the first census to list all members of a household was recorded. Robert was listed as a 60 year old farmer who owned land valued at $1,600. Rachel was 20. Also living in the household were: Samuel 21, Ann 14, Roulen [probably Paulser] 2 and Christopher, 8 months.4
Samuel was Robert's son from his first marriage. Ann may have been the daughter of Robert's son Andrew who had died the previous year (although Ann appears to have also been enumerated in her stepfather's household). The 1840 census tally dt Robert himself had a daughter in this age range. Living 1 household away was Robert E. Larimer [Robert's son from his first marriage] And not far away was James Larimer [another son from Robert's first marriage].
Robert and Rachel may have also had a son David, born around 1851, who died of scarlet fever in January, 1858 or January 1860. It is also possible, though less likely, that David was the son of Robert's son Robert from his first marriage. Rlear to have also had a son Andrew who was born about 1853 and died in 1855. He may have been named in memory of Robert's older son Andrew who died about 1849.12,13
Cens-1860 9 Aug 1860 Ten years later Robert and Rachel were again enumerated on the Washington County census. Robert, now 70, stated that his land was worth $4,000 and his personal property was valued at $2,000. In addition to Rachel, now 30, the family included 4 children: Paulser, Christopher, Sallie [Sarah] and 2 year old Virginia.14
Robert and Rachel also had at least 1 and probably 2 additional children after the 1860 enumeration.
Death 8 Jun 1875 Robert died on 8 Jun 1875.3
Burial He was buried at Rock Spring Cemetery in Washington County, Virginia.3
Will-Recd 28 Jun 1875 Robert's will was recorded on 28 Jun 1875 in Washington County. He left the bulk of his estate to Rachel, as long as she remained his widow. Robert also left $1 to each of the children by his first wife, but did not name t the children. He also left $1 to "daughter Jane Widener by my last wife". Robert noted that they had already received their share. Following Rachel's death Robert's land was to be divided among his 4 sons: Palser, Christopher, Charlie and Emett. He also left daughter Sally a horse, saddle and bridle.15
Probate Recd 29 Nov 1877 Settlement papers for Robert's estate were recorded in late 1877. Equal payments of $1 were made to: T. J. Larimer, Robert E. Larimer, James Larimer, Sarah Larimer, William Larimer, John M. McCall and Phebe A. Davis. Each of these individuals was identified as a devisee without further clarification. Other payments included $10 to Dr. Hutton and $24 to Dr. Dunn.
