I have an ancestor Abraham KENDALL that moved from Hardin County KY to Scotland Co., MO prior to the Civil War. There are many families in Scotland County, that came from that central KY area prior to the war. He married "Millie" Ellen GILMORE there in 1858. They moved by February of 1860 to Boonesboro in Howard County where their first three children William Thomas KENDALL, Lydia Anna "Annie" KENDALL and Walter Addison KENDALL were born. By March of 1866 they returned to Hardin County, KY. First, I am interested in seeing if there are any fmailies from the Hardin County area that may have relocated to Howard County, particularly Boonesboro prior to the Civil War. Next, I would be interested in the Civil War participation of residents of Howard county during the Civil War. In a court case in the 1890's a newspaper article mentioned that Abraham KENDALL had served in the Confederacy.

Nelson CROWDER was born in North or South Carolina (South Carolina according to his military enlistment papers and gravestone) on August 8, 1794. It is also recorded as February 8, 1796 and 1799 per family history. I do not have any information on his ancestors. On February 26, 1801 he was "bound out as an orphan" in Blount Co., Tennessee to Robert Shields (Co. Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Blount Co.) It states that Nelson was six years old and to be bound until he reached the age of 21. It has been suggested that Robert SHIELDS was originally from Sevier Co., Tennessee and owned and operated a bloomery forge in Tuchaleechee Cove in Blount Co., before moving his family to northern Georgia in the early 1800's. In 1814, Nelson was found in Winchester, Franklin Co., Tennessee where he joined Capt. Wiley Martin's 3rd Regiment of Tennessee Riflemen. Nelson served 5 years in the War of 1812 enlisting on September 1, 1814 and was discharged on August 18, 1819. About six weeks after his discharge from the service he married Susannah COGDILL/COGSDIL (October 3, 1819) in Howard Co., Missouri. Susannah was born on May 4, 1799 in TN or KY the daughter of Frederick and Catherine COGDILL. It has been told that she was "part Indian and raised by the Indians" (However, this has yet to be documented). Their children are as follows: Anna CROWDER b.Abt 1821 in Chariton County, MO m. George W. GIBSON in February 1859 in Daviess County. Malinda CROWDER b. Abt 1822 d. bef 1850 m. James WARREN. Rachel CROWDER b.1823 in Gentry Co., MO d. Aft 1870 m. Evan M. NICHOLAS.

Judith White ( Mar 3 1997
I am searching for information on two doctors who I believe are brothers: Dr. Abram WALLING & Dr. Croel WALLING. Abram was born about 1807 in New York; in 1839 he attended the Univ. of Louisville medical school. In 1840 he married in Caldwell County, Kentucky Mary Jane ASHBY; they immediately went to Carrollton, Carroll County, MO and lived there until about 1858. They were active members of the Christian Church in Carrollton. Abram was probably a southern sympathizer. In 1858 the family left Carrollton and went to Ft. Worth, Texas, where Abram, according to family tradition, died of a snakebite in 1860. After Abram's death, Mary Jane and the children moved back to Carrollton. Abram and Mary Jane ASHBY WALLING had four children: Ophelia (married Wm WINFREY and remained in Carrollton), Croel (who lived most of his adult life in Oklahoma), Edmonia, and Vasco. Only Ophelia and Croel had descendants. I assume that Abram's son Croel (born 1847 in Carrollton) was named for the Dr. Croel WALLING. Dr. Croel WALLING was born about 1810 in New York, but I have no further record of him until 1843 when he married Sicily JOHNSON in Howard County, Missouri. Sicily died in 1850, and in 1853 Croel married Margaret STANTON in Platte County, Missouri. There are land records for Dr. Croel WALLING in Livingston County Missouri in the 1850s. In 1870 Croel & Margaret Walling are in the Buchanan County, Missouri census. Croel died before the 1880 census, but I don't know when. Dr. Croel Walling and his first wife probably had at least two children: Sicily and Addie; Dr. Croel Walling and his second wife had four children: Novazembly, Loran, Cora, and Lucy. I would be especially grateful to learn the death date of Dr. Croel WALLING and, of course, the parents of Drs. Croel and Abram.
