Fenton Family Bible

Contributed by: Doris Falkenheiner - June 27, 2000

"Here is information from the James Fenton Family Bible and other records I have seen about he and his family":

James Fenton Sr., born 8 Aug 1801, Dundee, Scotland married on 23 Nov. 1824 to Anna Turner Taylor born 12 Dec 1800, Dundee, Scotland. They immigrated to the United States by way of Liverpool, England to New Orleans, Louisiana, and then up the Mississippi River to southern Indiana. They had 10 natural children all born in Dundee, Scotland:

Margaret Will Fenton, b. 17 Nov. 1825; died 25 Apr. 18_ _?
James Fenton Jr., b. 19 Feb 1827; married Agnes McMillan on 11 Mar 1852, Madison County, IN.
Ann T. Fenton, b. 4 Feb 1829; died 27 Oct 1829 in Scotland
Helen T. Fenton, b. 22 Sep 1830
Charles F. Fenton, b. 28 Aug 1832
Jean F. Fenton, b. 28 Aug 1834
Matilda W. Fenton, b. 31 Aug 1836
William Taylor Fenton, Sr., b. 25 Nov. 1838
Margaret M. Fenton, b. 10 May 1842
Martha B. Fenton, b. 22 Aug 1844

Family tradition is that one of the younger children died while the family was traveling up the Mississippi River on a steamboat before the family reached Indiana.

In addition to their 10 natural children, James and Anna adopted 2 Orphan Train children from The Children's Aid Society of New York City. This was in February 1861. These two were boys: Daniel Sullivan about 8 years of age and his younger brother, Timothy Sullivan.

James Fenton Sr. and Jr. were naturalized as American citizens in the Circuit Court of Jefferson County, Indiana in August, 1848. William Taylor Fenton Sr. was a veteran of the Indiana Volunteer Cavalry during the Civil War.
