JOSEPH PALMER & WIVES

Lincolnshire, England

The earliest people of Lincolnshire were, it is believed, the Coritani, who were conquered by the Romans in 50 A.D. There was an Iron Age Settlement at Lincoln which was later conquered by the Romans. When the Romans left, the area was settled by the Friesians, Saxons, and mostly the Angels. This area was later overrun by the Mercians and later still by the Northumbrians. In ca. 678-732, they had their first bishop. The monasteries built during that time were destroyed in the 9th Century by the Danes. The Danes, after years of raids on the east coastal area of England, occupied half of Lincolnshire. The sons of Alfred the Great recovered the invaded lands of the Five Burghs but this was not to last. It was re-taken by Canute, son of Svein in 1013. Again, in 1066, the Normans, William the Conqueror, re-took the lands.  [...long historical gap...] Now, skip ahead to the 1700s and our Palmer ancestors.

Older Possibility: Era 1644-1710 Lincolnshire, England

Timberland, Lincolnshire, England is 32 miles north-ish of Strubby. The first Joseph (b. bef 1644) may be the grandfather our Joseph listed third here, what do you think?

Hi,
Having seen your web page, I can find no real connections, (though I did have hopes when I saw the family crest). Our line was granted a crest when Sir Charles Mark Palmer was created a Baronet in 1886.
I've just compared the two and realised "You've pinched ours!!!!!" The cheek of some people!!!!!
If you ever do find a connection, the motto is supposed to read PAR SIT FORTUNA LABORI, not Palmer...
As Charles was the third son it has three crescent moons on the upper portion, lances on the dividing section, (can't remember the correct terms) and a lion with his front leg only raised. Apart from that you have it correct even down to "our" Wyvern.
Our Palmers had a lot to do with the sea in one way or another, George Palmer 1720-1785 was a Master Mariner of Monkwearmouth, as was his Nephew George, to whom he left most of his property,( Ships, Sloops, Vessels, Boats and parts and shares of Ships, Sloops, Vessels, and boats with all their appurtenances and all the rest residue and remainder of my goods, Chattels, Monies, securities for monies, Personal estate and effects whatsoever and wheresoever) [Will posted at Boston in 1755] George(2)'s (m Eleanor, dau. of Phineas Street of Frieston and Grand dau. of Phineas Street of Fishtoft co. Lincoln in 1777) sons were also Master Mariners, as were three of his grandchildren. Then we get to Charles Mark who you may have already come across, (it was his crest) he founded the shipyards at Jarrow, which was, I believe I'm correct in saying, the largest producer of ships in the world.
My Husband is descended from Charles' younger brother John Brough Palmer, (so really has no right to the crest either!!!.) Your Palmers don't seem to have anything to do with the sea, so I don't think that there can be any connection at this period. Thanks for responding so promptly, (and giving us a laugh.)

I have a John Palmer Abt. 1719 married to perhaps an Isabel Chambers. Named in his brother George's will. "This is the last Will and Testament of me George Palmer of Boston in the county of Lincoln Master Mariner." "also I give and bequeath unto Thomas, John, Edward, George and Mary Palmer, Children of my brother John Palmer the sum of one hundred pounds a piece to be paid within twelve months next after my decease."
Any connection?

1761: Joseph Palmer (m. Oct 9, 1761) Martha Parker
Joseph Palmer married, in Bilsby by license, Martha Parker (his second wife) on 9 Oct 1761.  Joseph Palmer was a widower, occupation grazier, when he married Martha Parker.  Which wife is our ancestor? Martha would not be our direct ancestor, nor the mother of Philip, since Philip was married in 1765. Evidently Joseph's first wife is Philip's mother.

The account of which is not quite clear, but perhaps he was taking care of the animal and was in the paddock or pasture when it happened.  He was buried at Langton 5 May 1807.

Susanna Freestone, mother of John Palmer, the immigrant. I found her burial date and her marriage record to Thomas Walker, her 2nd husband.  Birth records for the 2 Walker children and Ann Toin, her illegimate daughter.  Ann Toin is mentioned as far back as 1916 [1816?] in KJC's family records, so I am sure the Susanna Palmer I found is our ancestor.

Sargent Palmer

Family Lore

Researcher: Kathryn Jones Cannon

Note: "Drover"  is defined as (1) One who drives animals in droves to market: a cattle dealer. (2) a small fishing boat equipped with a drift net. "Drove" implies a group of animals gathered for moving or a mass of moving people.  "Drove" is also a wide chisel for smoothing stone.
Ref: Encyclopaedia Brittanica World Language Dictionary (1956). Vol  1, pg 401.

Chronology

1801: Sargent Palmer was christened in Partney, Lincoln, England on 27 Jul 1801.  I (KJC) know some of you have mentioned that you believe he immigrated to the U.S.  (My family never had this information--we assumed he stayed in England).  I am wondering if those of you that believe he immigrated have any hard evidence of this fact. Do you know the date of he immigrated or other details? If so,   please let me know.  The reason I ask is I believe I have located him in the 1881 British Census.  The 1881 census record shows a Sargent Palmer living in Boston, Lincoln, England.  His occupation is listed as a "Drover". This Sergeant was born in Partney,  Lincoln and was 80 years old in the 1881 census. Sargent is a very unusual first name, and his age and place of birth matches exactly with family records,  so I believe him to be John Palmer's,  brother.

John Palmer and Eleanor Doves joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Lincolnshire, England in 1854.

John Palmer's indenture, or financial obligation, was to a Mr. Loupe, a saloon keeper, in St. Louis, MO. This obligation was probably to cover the transportation costs for the Palmer family. This family is listed in the 1857 ship list for the SS George Washington (Liverpool to Boston, MA) and in the 1860 Missouri Census, St. Louis Co., St. Ferdinand Twp., as farmers.  They were two houses from a James Loupe family. This James Loupe is the same age as John Palmer, Jr. and appears to be a wealthy farmer.  Living with the John Palmer, Jr. family was an older woman named Phoebe [Kyme] Doves.

From the 1860 Census, a location was determined, St. Ferdinand Twp.  St. Ferdinand, the town, is located on modern Lewis and Clark Blvd. between I-70 and I-270 north of St. Louis. The township St. Ferdinand [Ward 16] has not been exactly located at present.

JOHN PALMER, Jr. & ELEANOR DOVES

John Palmer, Jr. was born in ... [Langton, Lincolnshire, England], and was one of the sturdy yeomanry of England, and was an industrious farmer there, but was in poor circumstances when he decided to come to American in 1857. He and his family embarked on the ship George Washington, and were twenty-four days en route [from Liverpool] to Boston [MA], whence he went to St. Louis [MO], where his family joined him. Some children stayed in Boston attending school under the care of an older daughter who worked there.   After arriving in St. Louis, he worked for some time as a farm hand, and was also a tenant farmer for about four years. The wife of John Palmer, Sr., was Eleanor Doves, and their nine children were all born before they left England.  In 1863, the family went by boat up the river to Omaha, Nebraska where they were compelled to wait twelve weeks on account of illness, and from that point went across the plains with ox teams in a train of twenty-six wagons to Salt Lake City.

Oxen & Wagon

In the fall of 1863, the family was at Smithfield, UT where they worked about four years.  Then, in 1868, they relocated one hundred miles north, on land about 4 miles west of Malad City, Oneida Co. Idaho, where one of the sons-in-law [William Cole] had settled previously, and there for six years the men of the family were engaged in farming, freighting and stock-raising. But to remain there in peace and harmony they should have been compelled to turn Mormons, [sic, this 1904 version ignores the 1854 religious records from England] and not favoring that idea they returned to Omaha and in the same fall, 1869, came to Nemaha county in Nebraska.  John Palmer worked for a time on Dr. Neal's farm.  John Sr. later bought eighty acres for fourteen hundred dollars, and this place was still owned by son Phillip, in 1904, and whose history will be found below along with other facts of the family history.

John and Eleanor (Doves) Palmer, the former of whom was born in England in 1806 and died in Peru, October 14, 1889, and the latter was born February 2, 1812, and they were married February 14, 1834. Their nine children reared to maturity were all born in England, and they lost their eldest child, Sarah, born in 1837. They came to America and made their way to St. Louis, having to borrow money to reach their destination, and they began their career in this country in humble circumstances, but gradually advanced by honorable and industrious efforts to a fair degree of material prosperity before their lives were ended in death, both passing away within the same week.

1863: John Palmer family went by riverboat from St. Louis, MO to Omaha, NE. They were delayed, in Omaha, for 12 weeks by illness. Then went by oxen wagon train to Smithfield, UT Terr. which was originally named Summit for the creek running through it. Later the name was changed in honor of John Glover Smith, the first LDS bishop who served the new settlement.
Ref: Palmer bios, 1904.

1863: John Palmer was rebaptized in Smithfield on 12 Dec 1863.
Verified by KJC: Smithfield, Utah Ward Records, Microfilm #025611.

186_: Kathryn wrote, "I saw no mention of William Cole in the Smithfield LDS Ward Records. The ward records were for recording LDS events--baptisms, confirmations, blessings of children, etc; however, the records did give some information about men working on the irrigation canals (you couldn't have a share of the water if you didn't help dig the canals),  allotments of land, even setting poles for telegraph poles--stuff like that. It even recorded how much hay land and stock the settlers owned. An example is this (for the Palmers) :

Hay land, Owns Stock, Sheep

J. Palmer Sr. , none, 13, 9

J. Palmer Jr.,  none,  5

So, even tho John Palmer Jr. and Octave Debuque were not LDS, they were mentioned several times in the ward records concerning secular things, however, I never saw William Cole's name ever entered in the records, so I assume he wasn't living in Smithfield at the time, or at least he wasn't involved in farming activities.
KJC: Smithfield, Utah Ward Records.

1868: The Palmer family arrived, the spring of 1868, in Malad, Idaho Terr. They met a man who was anxious to leave Malad and they bought his farm for a yoke of oxen. The farm was about 4 miles west of Malad and was called the "Big Bend [of the Little Malad River]." The Palmer family moved onto the land on March 25, 1868. The family consisted at that time of 5 brothers and the mother and father. The sisters were all married.  There, they built a cabin and began farming.  The log cabin they built, altho in bad shape, is still standing today [1999] and is said to be the oldest in the Malad Valley.   Kathryn Jones Cannon's cousin, George Palmer, owns the land and farms where this original cabin was located.  George built his house very near the original cabin.  Tom Palmer owns the farm where Susan and William Cole had their cabin.

1868-9 Land: Kathryn Cannon has copies of the Possessory Claims for John Palmer and his sons, Phillip Palmer and John Palmer. John Palmer's and John D. Palmer's claims adjoined, so she is sure John D.  was John's son. The possessary claim is clearly John D. Palmer.  She believes all three claims adjoined, although Phillip's claim doesn't mention adjoining the others, it does mention "Big Bend."

Phillip and John didn't sign their claims--their signatures were both written by the person preparing the claim.  John's was dated 16 Mar 1869, Phillip's 2 Feb 1869 and John D.'s (signed with his (X) mark on 18 Apr 1868.

1869: John Palmer filed a Possessory Claim on 16 Mar 1869

Possessory Claim of John Palmer

"To all whom it may concern know ye: That I John Palmer do hereby give notice that on the 16th day of March AD 1869 I located and claimed One Hundred and Sixty acres of land for agricultural and grazing purposes. The parcel being a portion of the Un-surveyed public lands of the United States in the Territory of Idaho and County of Oneida located in Malad Valley and bounded and described as follows To wit:

"Commencing at a point on the west line of the claim Wm. H. Jones adjoining the land of John D. Palmer and from thence running south 80 Rods. Thence West 80 Rods. Thence North 80 Rods. Thence East to point of Commencement and including Eighty acres of land.

"And further that I claim said land under the PreEmption laws of the United States and under an act of the Legislature of Idaho Territory Entitled an act Prescribing the mode of Maintaining and defending possessory action on the public lands in Idaho Territory.

"John Palmer

"Territory of Idaho, County of Oneida, ss:

"John Palmer being of duly sworn says that he has declared his intention of becoming a Citizen of the United States. That said described claim does not comprise more than One Hundred and Sixty acres of land. That he holds no other claim under the provisions of the said act and that to the best of his information and belief no part of said land is claimed under any existing active title.

"John Palmer

"Subscribed and sworn to before me this 16th day of March AD 1869.
B. F. White
Co. Recorder

"Recorded at request of John Palmer, March 16th AD 1869 at 2 Oclock PM
B. F. White
Co. Recorder"
Analysis: 80 rods x 16.5 ft = 1320 feet or 1/4 mile on a side (5280 / 4 = 1320 ft), thus 80 square rods = 40 acres.  Possibly only the 40 acres with the cabin was staked or measured??
Ref: Pre-emption and Possessory Claims for Oneida County, Idaho, pg or record 2; FHL Microfilm #1450642, #210

1869: John Palmer and most of his family moved back to Omaha, NE and immediately to Peru, Nemaha Co. NE where they farmed until their death. Son, Joseph Palmer, stayed on the Idaho farm and his descendants were still [1999] in the area.  KJC wrote that 1868 was the last year for wagon trains and after that date travelers boarded the train at Corine, UT; so the Palmer family probably went by train back to Nebraska.  It is 45 miles, as the crow flies, from Malad to Corine.

HELEN PALMER & WRIGHT A. MOORE

FAMILY LORE

Researcher: kmhughes@aros.net (Kathleen M. Hughes)

Helen Palmer and Wright Anderson Moore were married, 26 March 1858, in St. Louis, Missouri. Their first child was born on 28 December 1858, named Henry Wright Moore. Helen was very ill after the birth of the baby, and was taken by wagon to the home of her mother-in-law, where she and the baby could get good care. However, the baby died about six weeks after his birth, in Feburary 1859.

When Helen had recovered her health sufficiently, she and Wright started westward. They first settled at Genoa, Nance Co. ,NE [1860 NE Terr. federal census], where they planted a crop and started a home,  but the government sent 3700 American-Indians to this area, and they apparently took over the townsite.

During the summer or fall of 1860 a prairie fire burned all their crops. Wright, and a brother Charles, who had come with them, worked very hard plowing and otherwise fighting the fire to prevent the loss of their crops.

In the spring of 1861 they started across the plains in Job Pingree's small company.   They arrived in Salt Lake City in 1861 and lived there until the spring of 1863.   Apparently they lived in the main part of the city at first. Work was divided among the men, and Wright did some carpentering. When work gave out, trades were assigned. Wright and his brother-in-law Dan Camomile learned willow-basket-making.

In the spring of 1863 they moved to Skull Valley, south of Salt Lake City. They moved to Smithfield, Utah in November of that year. Martha Helen, Sarah Susanna, and Mary Eleanor were all born at Smithfield.  It is believed that grasshoppers ate their crops at least three of the years they lived there.

Wright and Helen Palmer Moore were living in Smithfield at this time, 3 children were born to them there--Martha Helen on 15 Nov 1864; Sarah Susanna on 15 Mar 1867; and Mary Eleanor on 18 July 1868.

They decided to leave, and spent the winter of 1869 at St. Charles, Idaho.

It was 14 March 1870 when the first group of settlers, including Wright A. Moore arrived in or close to what is now Randolph, Utah. The weather at Randolph was too cold for them to raise many fruits or vegetables–the occupation that Wright liked best.

William John Moore and Phoebe Emma Moore were born at Randolph, UT.

From Randolph they moved to Garden City, Utah. In Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah we read that Garden City was settled in February 1877 by Wright A. Moore and others. Wright suggested the name of Belleview for the town he settled on Bear Lake, but he was told by the postal authorities that there was another Belleview in Utah and was asked to submit another name. It was then called Garden City. The Moore's son Phillip Richard was the first child born Garden City.

Elizabeth Ann (nicknamed Teddy) Moore was also born there, but died of typhoid fever when she was about nine years old.

At one time he had nine cows and also raised grain, lucerne, apples, plums, raspberries, strawberries and watermelons. He peddled fruit as far as Evanston, Wyoming.

In 1902 the family decided to move to Idaho. They settled at Taylor (formerly Jamestown), Idaho, three and one-half miles east of Shelley, where they bought a six-acre piece of land by the Longhurst farm.

Later they moved to Blackfoot, Idaho, near their son Phillip. Wright Anderson Moore died of pneumonia in Blackfoot on December 4, 1913, at the age of eighty-three.   Helen Palmer Moore, who was five years younger, stayed a while longer, and then lived with her children.  She alternated between Martha and Phoebe in Evanston, Wyoming, and Phillip in Blackfoot Idaho.

Helen had to use crutches in her later years and she lost most of her eyesight. While living with Phoebe in Evanston she had a stroke and died on December 4, 1928, fifteen years to the day after her husband's death.  She was ninety-three.  She was buried beside her husband, Wright at Blackfoot, Idaho.

Sarah Palmer was working as a waiter in a hotel in St. Louis before the election of Abraham Lincoln, for the second term, a group of political leaders were talking about the election and as she passed them she said, "I can tell you who will be elected president if you want to know." Of course they asked, "Who?" and she said "Abraham Lincoln" then she said "I can tell you something else, he will never live to serve his term." That was all, she left them to ponder her saying for she hardly stopped while she told them.

The 1880 census gives the name of Sarah's son Samuel as Samuel M. Smart, age 16, son, at school, born Mo.  These censuses show that Thomas Smart was born Oct 1839 in Ohio, so the Longhurst information about him being born in Illinois is incorrect. [KJC]

The 1890 St. Louis directory lists a Samuel M. Smart, occupation clerk (different address than Thomas R.

JOHN PALMER & MARY MOORE

FAMILY LORE

John Palmer, who is one of the prominent farmers of Nemaha county, Nebraska, with his productive and beautiful farmstead situated three quarters of a mile west of Peru, has been a resident of this section of southeastern Nebraska for thirty-five years, ever since 1869. He was born in Lincolnshire, England, January 9, 1839.

John Palmer remained in the parental home till he was married and was also with the family in their various migrations about the country, living in Utah from 1863 to 1868 and then in Idaho in 1869. In the latter year he took up his home in Nebraska and later bought land. He settled on his present place about seventeen years ago, buying eighty acres with but slight improvements, and he erected his good and comfortable house six years ago. In the season of 1902, he had twenty-one hundred and fifty bushels of corn, and in all his agricultural operations is meeting with well deserved success.

Mr. Palmer was married in April, 1861, to Miss Mary Moore, who was born in England, being five years her husband's senior, and her death occurred May 21, 1902, at the age of sixty-nine, after a useful and worthy life of devotion to her husband and children and in which she gained the affection and regard of all which whom she came in contact. Mr. and Mrs. Palmer were the parents of seven children: Henry, who is a farmer on Dr. Neal's farm and has a wife and two daughters; Sarah, who is the wife of Lute Hanaford and has two daughters and one son; Emma, the wife of Thomas Carlisle and has one daughter and two sons; Minnie, who is the wife of Archer Cook and has two sons and a daughter; Miss Mary, who has been her father's housekeeper since her mother's death; and John, at home. All the children had good educational advantages in the common schools and in the normal.

Item 1:

Sarah Elizabeth Palmer (m.) William Hodgkinson (h1) & Lute Hannaford (h2) [Just trying to understand the generation and this Sarah's parents--EEM]

Grace Russell wrote Kathryn J. Canon about the Hannafords. (Sarah Palmer Hannaford, daughter of John Palmer).  Her information fit in fine with the information I already had. 

Sarah Elizabeth Palmer [b. estimated 1870] was married twice--she had a daughter Zoe Elizabeth, born 14 Jan 1891 with her first husband, William Hodgkinson.  She had Blanche M, born Apr 1896 and John William, born 8 Nov 1897, by  Hannaford. I found Zoe, Blanche and John William in the census records, but there may have been more children as Grace seems to indicate this. [KJC]

Item 2:

Martin Luther Hannaford married Sarah( Susanne) Palmer January 17, 1895.   Sarah Palmer was married before Martin to William Hodgkinson.  They had one daughter Zoe married Bill Beason, and John Hayes.(I think Zoe lived in Nemaha Co. but I am not sure).  Blanche I think moved to Yuma County Colorado, I live not far from Yuma Co. but have yet to take the time to research anything.  Just not enough time in the day.   Nellie Fern, I have nothing on her and of course John W. lived on his father's farm until he passed away. William M, (Martin's father) was a farmer then Martin Luther took over the acreage, then John W. took over the same farm and then John's son Dwaine continued the farming.  Dwaine has several boys and they are still farming the same place William farmed.  As far as your relative Sarah Palmer, I have a newspaper clipping that stated she was born in Smithfield Idaho. (sic Utah)  [Grace Russell] Sarah Palmer Hodgkinson Hannaford, who was the daughter of John Palmer, from Rosemary Braun. I had assumed Sarah's first husband died, but Rosemary tells me they were divorced.  She says: William Hodgkinson was my grandmother's uncle! I even knew him as I was growing up for he did not die in 1891-95. As a matter of fact, he married two more times as he and Sarah were divorced. Here are a few details for now: William Wakefield Hodgkinson was born 4 Jul 1869 London, Nemaha, NE to George and Harriet Hodgkinson. He married Sarah (I have Susanna as the middle name - ??)Palmer 23 Dec 1889 NE. Their daughter, Zoe Elizabeth was born c1891.  I have Auburn, Nemaha, NE as the place. I have only sketchy information for Zoe, that she married (1) _____ Hayes and (2) _____ Beason.

I, Kathryn, have corresponded several times with Rosemary Braun and she emailed me a photo of William, but she doesn't have a picture of Sarah or their daughter Zoe. (from KJC)

Susan Palmer & Octave F. Dubuque

Susan Palmer & William Cole

Susan Palmer & Peter Carey

FAMILY LORE

Susan Palmer immigrated from England with her parents, at about age fourteen, in 1857, to St. Louis MO. She married three husbands: Octave Dubuque/Debucue, William Cole and Peter Carey. She and Octave had a family of four or five children and were probably married late in 1860. Octave Debucue [Dubuque] died in 1868.

Susan married William Cole, and in 1870, they were in Malad City, Idaho where Alice Susan Cole was born.  William Cole and brother-in-law Joseph Palmer bought the ranch from Joseph's father. It wasn't long until Cole became discouraged, so he packed up and left his wife & children, probably late in 1870.  Susan then sold her part of the farm and she and her children went back to Nebraska to be with her parents, John & Eleanor Palmer.  This is William and Susan's log cabin as it existed in the 1990's, on the south side of Samaria Lane west of Malad, ID, on land presently owned by Tom Palmer.

William Cole wrote this lament and left it on the table for Susan at the time he left her, referring to her as "Anna," probably for Susanna.

GRASSHOPPERS AND CRICKETS

by William Cole, Year 1870

"Things look desperate and awfully sad,
For we are just about to bury the city of Malad.
Their long melancholy faces with their sad frowns
To watch the last shovelful thrown on the town.
Then there will be weeping and wailing and nashing of teeth–
If the revelation fails to find them relief.
Oh! What a burying it would be,
It would break many a heart
Then boys from their true lovers will have to depart.
They will wander to the valley among sage brush and thickets,
And leave old Malad to the grasshoppers and crickets.

"They must throw aside lying and other deceit
For the devil may take them all in a heap.
Remember old Malad has drawn its last breath
And all we can do is to announce the great death.
For the devil has charmed them by some unknown spell
And the first thing we know we are heaped up in hell.
If the people don’t try to make some resistance
I will bid farewell and disappear in the distance.
I will unfurl my sails and hoist my banner,
And bid farewell to my own dear Anna.
For I think from our move we are the devil’s relations,
And he can’t help us by his revelations.
And all we can do is to buy our traveling ticket,
And leave old Malad to the grasshoppers and crickets."

Late in life, Susan married Peter Carey, a drayman who hauled freight and mail from the train depot in Peru, Nebraska. A family story indicates that Peter Carey might have attended or graduated from Harvard University and that he was bearded and sloppy in his dress. His biography is given below.   One census indicated Susan had divorced Peter Carey and that she was living with two of her Dubuque sons in Peru. This is where she died.

This affidavit, which is probably false, is based on a "modified" marriage certificate copy implying "Jesse Woodson James" married "Susan Palmer."  This is the work of Susan's greatgrandson Charles E.

It is interesting to note (1) Susan reverted to Dubuque surname, (2) she was earning her living with a restaurant.  Later her daughter, Alice Susan Cole Mason, would do the same in Oklahoma about 1908, and her grand-daughter, Beulah Mason Armstrong, would also do that in Peru, NE about 1940.   According to Twilla Mason Hager, Susan Dubuque was probably living in the 800 or 900 block of Sixth St. south of California St.

Peter Carey
[b. abt 1838, d. 1925]

"Old-timers and students of the Normal [School which became Peru State College] will remember Peter Carey, the drayman who carried mail from the depot to the post office and hauled trunks and suitcases up Normal Hill to the dormitory and various rooming houses.

"Carey was born in Pike County, Illinois, and served four years, two months, in the Union Army as a Company Sergeant. His regiment was captured at Holly Springs, Mississippi, and Peter was the last man to be taken. After capture, he was confined to the hospital with a peculiar southern fever which caused him to sleep during the daytime. He was cured only by a change in climate. He was discharged on September 25, 1865.

"He came to Peru [Nemaha Co., NE] in 1869 and served thirty years as drayman and mail carrier. In early times, a bridge crossed the creek just south of the drugstore at Fifth and Park, Carey's team ran away with him, and he was thrown out, right at the bridge. For two months he was unconscious, often given up for dead; for two months more he was confined to bed, but his indomitable spirit refused to give up, and he resumed work. It may have been the result of the runaway or some later accident, but when I knew him, he used a crutch to get around.

"Peter and Susan Debuque [sic Dubuque Cole née Palmer, daughter of John and Elener Doves Palmer], a sister of John and Phillip Palmer, were married in 1888. They had no children of their own, but they adopted a son, Ezra, a grandson of Mrs. Carey. Ezra, who had a crippled arm [crushed and amputated midway between elbow and shoulder in a freight handling accident], was in various businesses here for many years.

"The Careys owned farm land east of Peru, where the old river bed and docks were located. It was (and still is) somewhat swampy. A large pond, called Pete's Pond, extended across the present road to the old city dump in what is now the town farm. the pond was what was left of the old river bed that ran through the site when Peru was founded."

The land had been owned by Peter Carey.  They also owned an 80 acre farm NW of Auburn about 2.5 miles. Both of these farms were rental property.

ELIZABETH A. DUBUQUE

FAMILY LORE

Elizabeth Ann Dubuque was the first born, and possible twin, to Octave/Susan Dubuque.  Note, there was no Elizabeth child with Susan Palmer Cole in the 1870 ID Census.

CHRONOLOGY

1861: Elizabeth Ann Dubuque (b. Oct 4, 1861) to Octavis/Susan Dubuque in St. Louis, MO and "blessed" on 18 March 1862 by Thomas Stater/Slater.  This child probably died before 1870 since she is not among the names that year.
Verified by KCJ: LDS Early Church Records, St. Louis Branch, 1849-1862, pg 34.   Microfilm #0001945.

MINNIE DUBUQUE & EDGAR PARRIOTT

Minnie Dubuque's middle name may have been Alphonsa which could imply the existance of an Alphonse Dubuque [Note: Minnie Lukaday Felminnie Alfonzo]. Based on the birth place of Edgar Parriott, that line came from Iowa to Nemaha Co. after 1861.  His father, Wm. C. Parriott [Jr.] was born in West Virginia and his mother in Iowa.  This couple could be in the Iowa 1860 Census.  Further, implies a Wm. C.

PHILLIP PALMER (h2) & MINERVA E. THARP SPICER

FAMILY LORE

Phillip Palmer, a brother of John Palmer and a retired farmer living in Peru, was born in Lincolnshire, England, November 17, 1846, a son of John and Eleanor (Doves) Palmer, the former of whom was born in England in 1806 and died in Peru, October 14, 1889, and the latter was born February 2, 1812, and they were married February 14, 1834. Their nine children reared to maturity were all born in England, and they lost their eldest child, Sarah, born in 1837. They came to America and made their way to St. Louis, having to borrow money to reach their destination, and they began their career in this country in humble circumstances, but gradually advanced by honorable and industrious efforts to a fair degree of material prosperity before their lives were ended in death, both passing away within the same week.

Phillip Palmer began working by the month near St. Louis, receiving only five dollars a month at first, and this wage was afterward increased to six dollars. In 1863 he, with the rest of the family, went by boat up the river to Omaha, where they were compelled to wait twelve weeks on account of illness, and from that point went across the plains with ox teams in a train of twenty-six wagons to Salt Lake City. They all located one hundred miles north of there, in Idaho, where one of the sons-in-law had settled previously, and there for six years the men of the family were engaged in farming, freighting and stock-raising. But to remain there in peace and harmony they should have been compelled to turn Mormons, and not favoring that idea they returned to Omaha and in the same fall came to Nemaha county. Phillip Palmer still owns the eighty acres which his father located, and he made it his home until the fall of 1903. He lost his right leg in January, 1900, and was compelled to give up active farming, so he moved into town and now has a pretty cottage home surrounded by five acres of land, mostly in orchard and beautiful evergreen groves. He is a Republican voter, and his wife is a member of the Christian church.

April 12, 1886, Mr. Palmer, after with filial devotion having remained with his parents for many years, as he also continued to do until their death, was married to Mrs. Minerva Spicer, the widow of William Spicer, who died in 1885, leaving his widow and three daughters. Mrs. Palmer was born in Jasper county, Iowa, a daughter of C. C. and Nancy (Wolf) Tharp, the former of whom was born near Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1818, and died March 19, 1902, at the advanced age of eighty-four years and the latter at the age of sixty-eight. Mr. and Mrs. Tharp had five children: One that died in infancy; Minerva, now Mrs. Palmer; Martha, the wife of Wilson Canning, in Colorado, and the mother of nine children; Armada, the wife of Rev. Chapman, a minister of the Christian church, and has eight children; and John Tharp, in Oklahoma and has five children. .... Mr. and Mrs. Palmer have three daughters, all of whom were educated in the normal [sic Peru Normal School] and have taught, as follows: Edith is the wife of Henry Palmer, a cousin, and has two daughters; Mary is the wife of Lee Parrish, on the farm three miles south of Peru, and has an infant son; and Bessie is a student in the training class of the normal [sic Peru Normal School].

Ref: A Biographical and Genealogical History of Southeastern Nebraska, Vol. I. Chicago & New York: The Lewis Publishing Co. 1904. pg 252.

Phillip Palmer was second husband of wife Minerva E. If Minerva E. was born in 1851, then she would have married the first time about 1871 under typical conditions.

In 1900, Minerva E. Tharp Spicer Palmer indicated she birthed four children with four living; however, in 1910, she indicated she birthed three children with three living. These three children were probably by her first husband; their name many not have been Palmer. But the birth states for the parents fit with Phillip and Minerva E. More, more work needs to be done as this census indicates "M1" for both Philip & Minerva E.

In 1910, the census shows two marriages for her.

1885: Obituary--William Spicer was a native of Delaware, was a carpenter by trade, and came to Nebraska before 1872; he was a non-commissioned officer in the Union army during the Civil war, and was twice wounded, in the head and in the arm. William came to Nebraska in 1872. His wife, Minerva E. Tharp, was born in Jasper county, Iowa, a daughter of C. C. and Nancy (Wolf) Tharp. There were three daughters born to this union who may have used the Palmer surname following the remarriage of Minerva E. Tharp Spicer to Phillip Palmer. William Spicer died in 1885 leaving a widow and three daughters, Edith, Mary and Bessie.

In the fall of 1869 the John Palmer family became discouraged because of the grasshoppers and crickets that continually ate their crops, so they left and went back to Nebraska with the exception of my great grandfather Joseph & his sister Susan. Joseph was an unmarried boy of 20 when his parents and brothers left. He tells how blue and lonesome he felt as he sat on the shed watching them go. He wondered if he would ever see his parents again. (He never did--although he did make a trip to Nebraska in his later life and visited some of his siblings.) At last he felt so badly that he jumped on his pony and caught up with them and rode into Malad with them.

Joseph and his brother-in-law, William Cole, bought the ranch from Joseph's father. It wasn't long until Cole became discouraged too, so he packed up and left his wife & children in the latter part of 1870. Susan then sold her part of the farm and went back to Nebraska to be with her folks. So, Joseph was left alone. He soon marrried tho and raised 9 children.  Joseph's eldest son, William--my grandfather-later bought the portion of the "Big Bend" that Susan had sold so most of the "Big Bend" still is owned by Palmer descendents. A descendant, Tom Palmer, [son of Jenkin L. Palmer] still owns much of this part of the "Big Bend."

Kathryn wrote, "Uncle Jenkin Palmer said the Little Malad River had been damned to make the Elkhorn Reservoir which is about 15 miles north of Malad, so the little river that runs thru the Palmer property now is just a little creek. When my Grandfather (W. H. Palmer) died, my siblings and I inherited 78 acres of land from him.
It was pasture land and we had cattle year round on the property.  This little creek which Jenk says is the Little Malad River ran thru our property and the cattle got their water from it.  We sold the land to Tom 11 years ago when Dad got too old to take care of it for us. (Tom had previously bought the rest of my Grandfather's land from my mother's other siblings).  The land we inherited was not far from the Susan-Cole cabin and was part of the original Palmer property, or so I've been told."

From 1870 ID Census is a Joseph/Nancy Palmer from Wales. There appears to be six years difference in the age of these two Josephs.  This must be a different couple.

Joseph Palmer died at Malad 17 April 1931.

Kathryn Jones Cannon noted, "My uncle Ernest Palmer, age 91, of Boise, died Wed. [Jul 1999].  Now there are only 2 of my mother's siblings living.  Most all of Joseph Palmer's descendents have lived to ripe old ages--except my mother who died at age 43."

1909: Land & Brand -- Kathryn Cannon has a copy of the Pre-emption record for Joseph Palmer, dated 1 Nov 1909. The claim was for 120 acres but she doesn't believe this land was in the same area as the Big Bend.  She also has a copy of Joseph's brand registration.

1909: Maria Williams, of Malad, said one of her Grandfather Joseph's favorite stories was this-- (It happend after Joseph's first wife died but before he married Charlotte, between June 1908 and Mar 1911).  Very late one night a knock came on his door. Joseph got up, answered the door and found a stranger standing there. The stranger asked if he was Joseph Palmer. Joseph confirmed that he was and the man said, "I am your brother, John." Since it had been around 40 years since the two brothers had laid eyes on one another, Joseph needed proof.  He said "If you're my brother John you have a scar on a certain part of your anatomy." John produced the scar and the brothers were reunited after so long a separation.  Cousin Maria said it was always her understanding that this picture is of John and Joseph and was taken in Malad during John's  visit.

Mrs. Palmer had been in failing health for a long time, and while everything possible was done in the way of treatment, nursing and tender care, the end gradually grew nearer intil the moment came when she heard and heeded the summons of death. Her passing has brought deep sorrow to the hearts of many friends throughout the community and in their deeper personal sorrow the bereaved family has the symphathy of all these friends.

Martha Parish was born in Monroe, Iowa December 7, 1855 [Friday] and moved with her parents to Peru in 1865. She attended school there and afterward became a member of the first class to be enrolled at the Peru Normal School which had just been founded in 1866. She recalled many vivid recollections of the early days at the school which has become one of the chief institutions of learning in Nebraska. She also recalled the earthquake that shook this part of Nebraska in 1866. She was able to recount many other interesting experiences in the early times and her conversation was always interesting and instructive, especially to the younger people.

In 1878 [sic m. Oct 30, 1879] she married to Geo. Palmer at Nebraska City and they moved to a farm near Peru where they lived until 1881 when they came to Auburn to make their home. Mrs. Palmer was a woman endowed with very fine traits of character. In the home and among friends and neighbors she weilded a strong influence to every worthy cause. She was a charter member of the Auburn Methodist church and her christian life was a beautiful exemplification of the faith that she had professed. She was also a member of the Royal Highlanders and true to the principles and ideals of that order. She will be missed by those who knew and appreciated her true womanly worth. She is survived by her husband and six children, Joe Palmer, Mrs. Maude Boyle, Mrs. Charles Humphrey, Mrs. Jess Whitaker, John Palmer and Phillip Palmer, all of Auburn and also by twenty-four grandchildren and one brother, John Parish of Burbank California.

The funeral services will be held this (Friday) afternoon at two o'clock and the interment will be made in Sheridan cemetery.

1936: George Palmer obituary
GEORGE PALMER STRICKEN FRIDAY WHILE EATING DINNER

Man Who Had Been Resident of Auburn For More Than Half Century Passed Away Saturday Night--Had Been Active Resident of Community.

George Palmer, who had been a resident of Auburn for many years and who was a well known and respected citizen, passed away Saturday [April 11, 1936] night at the home of his son, Joseph Palmer in Auburn.

He was eating dinner with his son and family Friday and was stricken while at the table. Although everything possible in the way of medical treatment and care, was done for him, the hand of death could not be stayed. Mr. Palmer has been in poor health for sometime but no one realized that the end was so near, therefore the news of his passing came as a surprise and shock to his friends.

George Palmer was born in Lincolnshire, England December 24, 1850 [Tuesday] and has attained the age of 85 years, 3 month and 14 days. When he was seven years old he came with his parents, brothers and sisters to this country, making the voyage in a small sailing vessel requiring 21 days to cross the ocean. They landed in Boston and later went to St. Louis. From there Mr. Palmer went to Omaha, making the trip up the Missouri river. He drove cattle across the plains to Idaho and then came to this country [sic county].

In 1878 [sic m. Oct 30, 1879] he was married to Martha Parish who passed away in September [6 Thursday] 1928. They moved to a farm near Peru where they resided until 1881 when they came to Auburn. At the time of his death Mr. Palmer was operating a grocery store in the north part of town.

He was a carpenter by trade and built many of the pioneer homes in Auburn and would tell of many hardships endured here in the early days. His life had been marked by activity and industry and a deep interest in the community.

Surviving are his five children: Joseph Palmer, Mrs. Maude Boyles, Mrs. Jess Whitaker, John Palmer and Phillip Palmer, all of Auburn. His daughter, Mrs. Georgia Humphrey preceded him in death about two years ago. He is also survived by 20 grand children and four grand-children.

Services were held at the Furlong funeral home Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev T. V. Hubbell. Many friends and neighbors were present at the last rites to pay their respects to his memory and the floral tributes were numerous and beautiful. A quartet consisting of Mr. and Mrs N. C. Sorenson, George Codington and Mrs. LaVeta Andrews sang: "Nearer Stil Nearer" and "Abide With Me." Piano accompaniments were played by Miss Frances Kinghorn. Pallbearers were Robt. Ward, William Johnson, Paul Lorance, Albert Humphrey, Earl Hardenburger and Ralph Hawkins. Burial was in Sheridan Cemetery.

Palmer, a carpenter by trade, died in that city March 1, 1879, leaving a widow and seven children. Aaron Palmer began driving an express wagon for A. Rob(ins)on in 1875; three years later bought a wagon and team of his own, ran that a year and then associated himself with R. Johnson, and established his present business, buying out his partner and selling to a professional baker, whom he in turn bought out, having managed a thriving business alone since 1881. A branch establishment at Calvert thrives under the management of B. Saunders. Mr. Palmer is looked upon as the bosser of Brownville, and prospers accordingly, assisted by his wife, formerly Della Furlough, of Maryland.
