BALCH, BUCK, HUNSAKER, WHITAKER posted by Carolyn Whitaker on Monday, July 26, 1999

I am interested in finding descendants of the Balch and Buck family of Marshfield & Niangua area. My 2nd great uncle, Hartless T. Balch was b. abt 1845 Lincoln Co. NC and died 13 July 1901 in Niangua. Buried at the Lutheran Cemetery just east of Marshfield. He was listed as a widower in the 1900 census He had siblings, Ellenora b. abt 1838 Lincoln Co. NC, Harvey Girdine b. abt 1843 NC, Candus b. 1847 NC, and Carnellus b. abt 1856 NC. There is a marriage between a Carnolios Balch to Alexander Buck 11 June 1876 Webster Co. MO. In the 1900 & 1910 census Alexander & Carnallis Butts (most likely Buck) are listed with a mother in law - Ella/Ellen Balch, widow, age 75 born NC. A few households away Hartwell Balch age 54 born NC is living as widower with servant, Nora McLaugh. I have not yet looked at these census records, but received through a gracious lookup through Webster Co so can't give dates for the Buck's, but puts an approximate birth year around late 1850's. According to census, Ellen had only 1 child. The above family members lived in Cocke Co. TN in late 1850's and were on the census with their parents, Henry Balch and Sally Hunsaker in 1860. Hartless served in the 3rd Tenn Mtd. Infantry Co. A from 30 June 1864 to 13 Dec 1864 during the Civil War. At what point they left Tenn I have no clue. But puts them there as early as 1876. I have not investigated yet, but do know there also were some Whitaker's in the area at the time. The daughter of Harvey Girdine Balch is my great grandmother Daisy b. abt 1867 who married Samuel S. Whitaker, who also were from Cocke Co. TN. Samuel's parents were Joseph Whitaker and Mary Eliza Hudson. Daisy died sometime between 1894/96 to 1900 when Samuel remarried to Mary Willett in Cocke Co. TN and then left between 1903/1906 and was in Mansfield, Wright Co. MO and then went to Iola, Allen Co. Kansas around 1910. For further information on these families please visit my website at: Any help appreciated. Carolyn Whitaker
