HALSEY, SCOTT, TROXEL posted by Bob Halsey on Tuesday, September 1, 1998

Looking for the burial site of Nancy (SCOTT) HALSEY, wife of Eli HALSEY, daughter of Alexander SCOTT. Nancy was born in TN on 5/20/1819. She was a life-long resident of DeWitt County, IL. Following Eli's death, in DeWitt County on 1/19/1892, she traveled to Daviess County to join her father and siblings. Alexander and siblings are buried in Old Scotland Cemetery. There is also a Nancy (TROXEL) HALSEY, wife of William, also from DeWitt County, IL, buried in Old Scotland Cemetery. Nancy HALSEY would have died around 1900. Any information would be helpful.

William and Elizabeth BRUMFIELD, listed on the 1860 census in Daviess County, MO. William was a Captain in the Civil War with the Union Army, and was reported as killed during that war.

(first name unknown) Any information as to the man she married, and what became of her would be much appreciated. William and Elizabeth had 7 children. Mary K., Sarah, John, Dinah, James, William Jr, and Charles Worth Sherman Brumfield. Any information on what happened to the children would be very helpful. Thank you.

CUBBERLEY posted by Jeff Bjorck on Friday, September 4, 1998

Just an update that might be added to my CUBBERLEY query. Charles Cubberley did also spell his name Cubberly. He had four children by his first wife (name?), who were John, Sue, Albert, and Ida. John designed the first church in the United states that had a sloping floor down to the front like a theatre does, and it was supposedly still standing in Gallatin in 1980. I don't know if it still is.

William BRUMFIELD, of Daviess Co. MO, fought in the Civil War, and was in the 43rd Missouri Infantry. He was Captain of F Company. Word has it that he died during the war, but I need verification of that. He is buried in Old Scotland Cemetery, in Daviess Co. MO. There is not date of death on the tombstone, just the listing of the regiment and company he was in during the war. Would still like to know his date of death and where to look for a roster of his regiment and/or F Company of that regiment. I'd be much obliged for any help in this matter. Thank you.
