The town of Allegany was formed from Great Valley on April 18, 1831. It was originally called Burton, and its name was changed to Allegany on March 28, 1851. Humphrey was taken off in 1836. It lies on the south border of the county, and includes part of the Allegany Indian Reservation.

There are 3 streams, Four Mile, Five Mile and Mill Creeks, which are tributaries of the Allegany River. Much of the town was covered by lumber in 1860, and lumbering was an important industry. Allegany, (p.v.) is located upon Allegany River, and in 1862 contained a tannery, door factory, and blind factory. It had 3 churches and 70 houses, and was a station on the NY and Erie R.R. A college, run by the Franciscans was located near the village. Five Mile Run is a p.o. that was first settled by Ebenezer Reed from Connecticut, who located near the mouth of Five Mile Creek in 1820. Other early settlers include: Andrew Allen, Hiram Wood, James Strong, Isaac Eggleston, and Amos and David Orton, who settled along the creek in 1821.

TENTH GENERATION

24.  Elijah ALLEN was born in 1826. (photo) These two biographies, both reported to be from the “LDS Biographical Encyclopedia”, have slightly different wording and details:

* Biography from the InfoBases family history CD.

* Biography from an unknown transcriber.

# Biography from “Treasures of Pioneer History”, published by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers in 1952.

# Elijah’s account of his time with Brigham Young and the Mormon Battalion.

# The story of the Mormon Battalion, from the History of Utah by Orson F. Whitney, which lists Elijah as a private in Company B. Entry in Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah, p.713:

ALLEN, ELIJAH (son of Andrew Lee Allen and Clarinda Knapp). Born Feb. 7, 1826, Burton, N. Y.

Married Eliza Ann Bickmore (daughter of William and Christina Bickmore), who was born Jan. 29, 1830. Their children: Elijah b. Feb. 24, 1850; William b. April 17, 1854; Eliza Ann b. June 1, 1856, m.

Served in Co. B, Mormon Battalion.

# Mentioned in the history of San Bernadino, California in Our Pioneer Heritage, Vol. 4, p.367:

It was natural those chosen to help form the new settlement would include men acquainted with the terrain between Utah and the west coast, and also those capable of supervising a venture of such magnitude. Thus some members of the Mormon Battalion and Mississippi Saints were selected. Among the Mormon Battalion men who resided in San Bernardino (1851-1858) were Elijah Allen, James Bailey, W. E. Beckstead, Gilbert Bickmore, Thomas Bingham, Abner Blackburn, Henry G. Boyle, Montgomery Button, James Clift, Robert Clift, Foster Curtis, Robert C. Egbert, Ebenezer Hanks, Silas Harris, James P. Hirons, Lucas Hoagland, Gilbert Hunt, Jefferson Hunt, Marshall Hunt, Jesse D. Hunter, William Hyde, David H. Jones, Andrew Lytle, Peter J. Mesick, Harley Mowrey, Calvin Reed, John Henry Rol[p.367] lins, Levi Runyon, M. L. Shepherd, William McIntyre, James Stewart, Stephen M. St. John, Rufus Stoddard, Nathan Swarthout, Truman Swarthout, Myron Tanner and Albert Tanner. (See Mormon Battalion DUP publication).

# Mentioned in the biography of Henry Arnold in the LDS Biographical Encyclopedia, Andrew Jenson, Vol. 3, p.590. We are not certain that this is the correct Elijah Allen, since this is the only mention of him being a Captain, but the timeframe is correct and it is likely that his experience on the Mormon Battalian would result in him being promoted. Also, Henry Arnold was living in Fort Herriman at this time.

“In the winter of 1857-58 he [Henry Arnold] participated in the Echo canyon expedition as first lieutenant in Capt. Elijah Allen’s company, remaining out until the greatest danger was over and the majority of the brethren returned to their homes.”

# Interestingly, one of Elijah’s fellow Mormon Battalion members was Ezra Allen, who was a private and a fifer in Company C. Ezra died while returning from California and his wife, Sarah Beriah Fiske, later married Joel Ricks, whose granddaughter Reda Ricks married Elijah’s grandson Henry Heber Allen.

# Mentioned in Our Pioneer Heritage, Vol. 17, p.155 in the section on how some Utah landmarks got their names. There is no conclusive proof that this is the same Elijah Allen, but it is likely.

Autobiography (1826-1848)

Holograph. 8 pp. 24.8 cm. HDC [LDS Church Archives] (d 5)

Born in 1826. Joined LDS Church, 1836. Teamster for Brigham Young, 1846. Served in Mormon Battalion, 1846-47. Account of trip to California, 1846. Spent time in hospital in San Diego, 1846-47. Worked at San Gabriel Mission, 1847-48. Relocated in Salt Lake Valley. After short time at farming, traveled east with herd of horses. Met Brigham Young on plains. Returned to Iowa to see family. (“After being gone over two years I felt I had landed once more on the shores of america.”)

He was married to Eliza Ann BICKMORE on May 2 1852 in Conesville, Pottawatamie, Iowa. Eliza Ann BICKMORE was born.  Eliza Ann Bickmore

Eliza Ann Bickmore was born 29 Jan 1830 in Madison, Illinois.  She was the daughter of William and Christine Bagley Bickmore and was one of a large family though all the other names of the family are not known.  Two brothers, Gilbert and Orlando, and two sisters, Christine and Fidelia, are listed on the records.  Fidelia married a man named Kidd and lived at Fort Herriman.

Eliza Ann had her endowments 7 Feb 1846.  After the return of the Mormon Battalion she met and married Elijah Allen in 1852.  After a short stay in Provo, they settled in Fort Herriman.  They had seven children, one daughter and six sons.  Her husband died 21 Apr 1866 as a result of the hard trip and severe treatment he received with the Mormon Battalion.  He never knew what good health was after that journey.  Her husband’s brothers, Charles, Andrew and Levi, had her move to Richmond with her family so they could help to look after her.  They must have been in very strained circumstances as the children had to go without shoes in the wintertime.  Andrew said he went to school barefoot when quite a good-sized boy.

Eliza Ann was a hard working woman.  The family kept sheep and she spun and wove the cloth for all their clothing.  She knit the socks, wove carpets, churned and made butter, made good salt-rising bread in the summer and yeast bread in the winter.  She was quick about her work and could wash, churn, bake, and iron in one day besides getting the meals.  She was a good “plain food” cook and her meals were always appetizing.  She taught her family to work.  The people of Richmond would put all their cows together in one herd and hire her boys to herd them.  They hired Eliza Ann’s sons, two at a time, until they got old enough to do a man’s work.  Her son, Elijah, worked in the canyon and Will worked down in the lead mines in Bingham, Utah.  Will became leaded and it affected his mind.  He died at an early age.

The family first lived in a little log house in the northeast part of Richmond.  As the boys grew older, Elijah homesteaded land out in Coveville and the family moved out there in a one-room log house.  They stayed there and built a nice two-room frame house with lumber they cut in the canyon.  It was painted white.  Elijah got pneumonia working in the canyon and died.  Eliza Ann lived in this home until her children were all married, and then she lived with one or another of the children, wherever she was needed until she died in March of 1901.  She was religious in a quiet way and attended church wherever she could.  She was a good woman and notably neat and clean.

tribute paid to Aunt Eliza Ann Bickmore Allen from Lydia S. Purnell

Their first home was in a village 20 miles southwest of Salt Lake City called Fort Herriman, where her children were born and her husband died.  Sometime after his death, his brothers moved her to Richmond, Cache Valley, Utah, that they might help her with their counsel and management.

She had a yoke of cattle, a wagon, household furniture, a few cows, sheep, chickens and pigs, which they had accumulated while her husband was alive.  She bought a city lot with one log room, some shed and corrals to shelter the animals, thus, she started anew to make a home and raise her family which consisted of six boys and one girl ranging in age from 13 to 2 years.  My purpose in writing this tribute is to show how she did it.  She kept her family together, taught them to work and to be honest and obedient.  She was kind to them and worked hard to keep them clothed and fed.  She made clothes for clothing, stockings, blankets and quilts with the wool from her sheep.  After a few years they build a good log room with shingled roof and an attic where the boys slept.

When I was about 12 years old, I made many visits with them as her daughter, Eliza Ann was near my age.  Aunt always made me welcome.  The boys were agreeable.  It was a real home where peace and freedom were enjoyed.  The children were permitted to play games, chatter, tell riddles, pop popcorn, and make molasses candy.  Aunt seemed to enjoy the fun with the children who went to school in the winter.  The children always had their friends to chum around with.  There was no disposition to be unruly.  They just went along good naturedly about their duties.  I do not say they were perfect, I suppose they disagreed, spoke loudly sometimes, but on the whole they got along fairly peaceably.  I never heard of any of them leaving home or committing any drastic offense.  Young Elijah homesteaded a quarter section of land in Cove, Utah which is about three miles north of Richmond.  The boys built a nice two-room frame house and painted it white.  This was their home until they were all married.  Then the land was divided with the boys, and their mother went to live with them in her old age.  I tell this as a background to bring out her character.

She was industrious, a good housekeeper, honest, paid her debts, lived her religion, was kind and obliging to her neighbors, upheld her husband to her children so much that they had great admiration and reverence for him although the majority never knew him very well because they were too young to remember much about him.

Any woman who can raise a family under the circumstances in which she was placed from the beginning to the end is truly outstanding.  One may be sure that she had many difficulties to overcome, many that were trying to her soul, that nothing short of a good faith in God could make her master [of her] situation.  They all made good citizens and good Latter-day Saints, all were married in the temple and raised honorable families who bear the characteristics bequeathed them by their worthy parents.  One outstanding feature of her sons is that they were industrious, thrifty, and thereby able to build good homes and provide well for their families.  I say to their posterity how valuable is their heritage, worthy of sincere appreciation.

He was married to Emma Pearl NIELSON on Oct 9 1901 in Salt Lake City Utah. Emma Pearl NIELSON was born on Apr 1 1880 in Sunset, Apache, Az.  She died on Aug 17 1931 in Mesa, Maricopa, Arizona.  Elijah ALLEN and Emma Pearl NIELSON had the following children:

  1. Elijah Cecil ALLEN.

50.  Rebecca Hannah ALLEN was born on Jul 6 1883 in Mesa, Maricopa, Az.  She died on Apr 7 1971 in Mesa, Maricopa, Az.  Rebecca and Orson took care of and  helped greatly Georgia and Francis after Leon left them for Selma G.

She was married to Orson Ashael PHELPS (son of Hyrum Smith PHELPS and Mary Elizabeth BINGHAM). Orson Ashael PHELPS was born on Jun 24 1882 in Mesa, Maricopa, Az.  He died on Jul 24 1953 in Mesa, Maricopa, Az.  He was buried on Jul 27 1953 in Mesa, Maricopa, Az.  Orson was the sixth child of his parents, Hyrum Smith Phelps and Mary Elizabeth Bingham, and he was welcomed into their home June 24, 1882 in Mesa, Arizona. His sister Hattie was not two years old when Orson was born, and through their childhood they were very close.

His first home was a two-room adobe house located on the property where Temple Courts stand on South Hibbert Street. A few years later his father built a larger adobe house with a shingle roof and wooden floors just north of the old one on the corner of Hibbert and First Avenue. In that house he spent his childhood. The lot was a quarter of the block and was planted to fruit trees and a grape vineyard.

The family cows were pastured at the 80-acre farm on East Main Street, and Orson fell heir to the job of herding the cows into town to be milked in the evening and herding them back in the morning. He, Gove, and sometimes Barbara or Hattie helped with the milking.

He loved to play marbles and became a real winner. He kept winning until he had a tomato can full of marbles, and he thought to take good care of them he would put them in the ground. He found a secret place and buried his can of marbles; however, when he wanted them again, he couldn’t find the place and he never saw his collection again. In his later years he would laugh when he recounted this experience.

As he grew he attended Mesa schools and took his responsibilities in the church. He served as president of the deacon quorum and was a counselor at one time in the same organization. One Sunday morning when he was sitting behind the sacrament table ready to help administer the Sacrament, Sister Griffin said to her neighbor, “Orson Phelps looks as innocent as the day he was born,” and that was true of him.

He graduated from eighth grade. He was a great hand to make up adjectives to suit his needs. One day when it was raining, he had seen a man in a wagon going out past their place to get wood on the desert. About sundown, he saw the same man coming back with an empty wagon and it disgusted Orson. He said to Hattie, “Look at that inforben fool coming home without any wood.” Another time he was trying to teach a calf to drink from a bucket and the calf stepped on his foot. Orson rebuked he calf saying, “Well, you’ve waltzed on my foot, now why don’t you take a two step!”

By the time he was large enough to help with other ranch chores, he had to haul hay, irrigate both grain and alfalfa, and at harvest he helped with binding and pitching the grain bundles. He learned all the things a farmer has to know. The only pay he got was his support. Once in awhile his father could spare him a dollar for a dance ticket or perhaps a nickel to buy an orange. Dollar were hard to come by in those days.

He was a very sensitive person, tender hearted, generous and helpful. He couldn’t see his father left to run the ranch by himself when the older boys had grown and gone, so Orson remained and helped him, feeling it wrong to leave the work for his aging father to do by himself.

On Sept. 13, 1905, Orson and Rebecca Allen were married in the Salt Lake Tempe, making the trip with Tom Watkins and Julia Allen and Henry Watkins and Caroline Rogers, with Hattie and Jim Miller as chaperones. The three couples were married by Brother John R. Winder. They remained in northern Utah for a month, visiting relatives, then returned to Mesa to make their home. Each of their fathers had given them a cow, and Orson owned a horse and buggy which he had used while courting Rebecca, plus a sow and nine little pigs. To show his appreciation to Orson for his faithful years of service on the ranch, his father helped them in a number of ways to get their home started. He also gave them $200 to finance their trip to Salt Lake.

They soon had a cozy little home composed of a couple of tents built on the northwest corner of Grandpa’s ranch. The rooms, boarded up half way, had lumber floors, and they were joined together with a breezeway. Rebecca’s father had given them some stock in the Coop Store which was sold for $25 with which they purchased a linoleum rug for the kitchen and some other household furnishings. Her folks gave them an old rug and abed. Gove gave them a stove as a wedding present, and they received other gifts at a wedding reception, so they felt well off.

When the winter rains came, it leaked through the top of the tents, but it failed to dampen their spirits. They would open the old umbrella and place it over their heads to turn the drips of rain, and their feet didn’t matter. Their two-tent home meant as much to them as greater ones have to others. After six months they moved their tents to a twenty-acre tract which was located on Home Lane. It was at this place their first baby, Oma, was born Aug. 11, 1906.

Later they built a frame house to replace the tents. Grandpa Phelps helped to build it, for Orson still helped his father during the haying season. Their first son, Lewis. was born in the frame house in 1909. While he was yet a baby, they filed on a homestead south of Chandler where they moved one of the tent rooms. They lived there off and on until they had proved upon it and got the deeds of ownership. In 1911 Genevieve was born in the frame house on Horne lane. Water was not available for the Chandler 160 acres, so they had moved back to Mesa, sold the ten acres and cows and rented what was known as the Solomon ranch on east Broadway. It was there in 1914 that Leon was born. Their next move was to rent Aunt Adelaide Allen Peterson’s place on Fourth Avenue [corner of Hobson and Broadway] where they stayed one year. Then taking the cows they had acquired in the past two years, they moved onto the Dudley Lewis ranch two miles further east on Broadway. This they rented with the privilege of buying the sixty acres. It was there they paid cash for their first car, a Chevrolet, and in 1917 Elizabeth was born.

The payments Orson made on the Lewis ranch were misused, and in the summer of 1919 they decided to sell out for what they could get. They were talked into putting their money into a large acreage of cotton ready to pick while the price was one dollar per pound, but the price suddenly dropped and they lost everything. It was during this trial in 1919 that Orson Jr. was born. Tom Watkins made it possible for Orson to buy some property on Baseline Road where they started over again, but the price of produce raised on the ranch failed to match the payments and they were forced to make another change. Elijah Allen helped them to make a trade of the ranch for a ten-acre place on South Mesa Drive. Soon after locating there, Orson began to haul gravel and sand for a living. First he hauled with a team and wagon, then he traded for a dump truck and continued to haul for more than twenty years. It was on Mesa Drive that he build their home that stood well into the 1980s.

For 40 years Orson and Rebecca sang in the choir for he loved to sing and had a good high tenor voice. All of their family were musically talented and music was a big part of their home.

In his later years, Orson filled a mission to the Lamanites in San Tan. He was called to serve a second mission but did not live long enough to do so. He helped the poor and the needy; in fact, he helped the widows so much that the family kidded him about being the widow’s man. When he died July 24, 1953 he was mourned by friends and family.

  1. Eliphalet HULL was born on Dec 4 1749 in Hull Farms,Fairfield,Connecticut,USA.  He died on Mar 30 1813 in Benton, Yates, New York.  In 1771, the young couple began life in earnest on a farm near Ballston, Saratoga County, New York, where they remained until 1790, when, with their eight children they moved to Unadilla, Yates County; and four years later to Benton where Mr.Hull ended his days. The most eventful period of their lives was while their home was in Saratoga County. It included the seven years of the Revolution, the days that “tried men’s souls.” The following sketch was prepared by two of their descendants, Mrs. Emma Buell Lee, and her sister, Sarah E. Buell, of Yates County, New York, in 1902. “Eliphalet Hull was a soldier of the Revolution. His name is enrolled in Capt. John Thompson’s Co. of 13th Albany County Regt. he was also a scout and a Minute Man. With his two yoke of oxen, and his son Salmon, ten years old, driving one team, he helped place the great chain across the Hudson River below West Point, which was intended to keep the british vessels from ascending. Great Grandmother Hull resided during her last years with our grandmother Sarah Hull Buell, and we often listened with great interest to the stories of the part she and great grandfather played during the War of the Revolution. Their home was on the line of Burgoyne’s march and they suffered great hardships. At one time all the men and boys were called to the Fort, as an attack was expected. Reinforcements were needed, but no one could be spared to send for them. Our great grandmother mounted ahorse and rode through the November sleet and rain and at daybreak returned with the reinforcements. On some occassions she was compelled to take her children and hide in the woods, and twice she put them in an ox cart and returned to Connecticut… “Eliphalet Hull was one of the noblest of the early settlers of Benton, a good man with endowments and acquirements that made him useful to his own generation, and doubly so to the youth of the new settlement…… “Huldah Patchen Hull was a woman of remarkable capabilities and worth. Her experiences covered the whole period of the Revolution and many years thereafter, buffeting the trials and perils incident to pioneer life, which involved hardships and privations inconceivable in our time, and made her an oracle of her period among a wide circle of acquaintances.

7.  Nicanor PILKINTON was born about 1750 in Essex County Virginia.

Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost   and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch.” Acts 6: 3-5

 

Nicanor (ny- cane – or) is indeed an unusual name, but Biblical in origin and in translation meaning a “conqueror”, or “victorious”. Nicanor was born circa 1750 to 1755 most likely in Essex County of the colony of Virginia”

  1. William PILKINTON was born in 1775 in Virginia, USA.  He died in Aug 1849 in Guilford County, North Carolina. William Pilkinton of Essex County, Virginia. Nicanor named his first son William, which due to naming customs of early tidewater Chesapeake families, one may assume that William was the name of Nicanor’s paternal grandfather. Since there was a William Pilkinton in Essex County, that would tend to bolster the case for Nicanor to be related to the Essex group (if added to the preponderance of the evidence) COPYRIGHT James Fred Pilkinton Jr. 2004

Descendants of John KNIGHT

FIRST GENERATION

 

1.  John KNIGHT was born in 1668.  Knight Name Meaning and History

English: status name from Middle English knyghte ‘knight’, Old English cniht ‘boy’, ‘youth’, ‘serving lad’. This word was used as a personal name before the Norman Conquest, and the surname may in part reflect a survival of this. It is also possible that in a few cases it represents a survival of the Old English sense into Middle English, as an occupational name for a domestic servant. In most cases, however, it clearly comes from the more exalted sense that the word achieved in the Middle Ages. In the feudal system introduced by the Normans the word was applied at first to a tenant bound to serve his lord as a mounted soldier. Hence it came to denote a man of some substance, since maintaining horses and armor was an expensive business. As feudal obligations became increasingly converted to monetary payments, the term lost its precise significance and came to denote an honorable estate conferred by the king on men of noble birth who had served him well. Knights in this last sense normally belonged to ancient noble families with distinguished family names of their own, so that the surname is more likely to have been applied to a servant in a knightly house or to someone who had played the part of a knight in a pageant or won the title in some contest of skill.

Recent research has found the Owens in the same area, Monroe County, Alabama as a group of people from Sumter County, S.C. whose arrival has been documented as being there in January or February 1817. This group was known as the Broughton- Couliette party, and Nathaniel Broughton’s son Edward Thomas Broughton married Rachel Winborne, the granddaughter of John Owen of Chester Co., S.C. and daughter of Dempsey Winborne, Jr. and Priscilla Owen. Winborne was also a Primitive Baptist Preacher.

In 1821, Samuel Tine is found in Pike County, Alabama, listed among the 100 first settlers of that County. He was appointed as a commissioner to select a seat of Justice for Pike County. The deed written in long hand begins as follows: Know all men by these present that we , Samuel T.

(Abstracts From the North Carolina Journal Halifax., North Carolina 1795-1797, Vol. II.)

Samuel Tine Owen and Sarah Ward Knight

Samuel Tine Owen, born 2 August 1795 in S.C., married.on the 6 June 1816,

probably in Chester County, S.C., Sarah Ward  Knight, born 21 July 1800,

York County, S.C.  as that is where her father, Allen Knight, was at that

  1. Samuel Tine Owen was the son of David Owen, born ca. 1765-70 and

Mary Owen, the first record of whom is the 1830  Pike County, Alabama

census.  Family legend states that an Owen- Knight caravan left South

Carolina ca. 1817 to go to Alabama. Recent research has found the Owens in

the same area, Monroe County, Alabama as a group of people from Sumter

County, S.C. whose arrival has been documented as being there in January or

February 1817.  This group was known as the Broughton- Couliette party, and

Nathaniel Broughton’s son, Edward Thomas Broughton married Rachel Winborne, the granddaughter of John Owen of Chester Co., S.C. and daughter of Dempsey Winborne, Jr.  and Priscilla Owen. Winborne was also a Primitive Baptist Preacher. The significance of this is that Priscilla Owen Winborne and David Owen were brother and sister.

On October 1817 Samuel T. Oweings signed a petition to the U.S. Congress

with 363 Co-signers, inhabitants of Alabama Territory residing between and

near the waters of Mobile and the Tombigee River, protesting the annexation

of parts of Alabama to Mississipi.  Another signer of this document was

Dempsey Winborne, a Primitive Baptist Preacher, the son-in-law of John Owen

of Chester County, S.C. who also was in the group that arrived in Monroe

County, Alabama late 1816.  The next record of Samuel Tine is in Monroe

County when he signed a voucher for the sum of $1.00 he borrowed from

Christopher Couliette.  Also signing vouchers were David Owen, Robert Owen

and John Owen. These were dated March and April 1818. (See later)

In 1821, Samuel Tine is found in Pike County, Alabama, listed among the 100

first settlers of that County. He was appointed as a commissioner to select

a seat of Justice for Pike County.  The deed written in long hand begins as

follows:

Know all men by these present that we , Samuel T. Owen,  John Hanchy and Barnet Franklin, commissioners, duly appointed to select a seat of Justice for said County of Pike, for and consideration of sixty-two dollars to us in hand , paid by John C.  Curtis, the receipt where of is hereby acknowledged.  We do hereby acknowledge,  give, grant, bargain, sell and confirm unto the said John C. Curtis, all those tracts or lots situated, lying and being in the town of Troy known and designated as lots no.  one, three and four in Block A measuring ninety-three feet in front and depth.  Each one will now fully appear by reference to the plan of said town.”  The deed was written 6

October 1838 and recorded in Deed Bk A, p.  554-55.

The family of Samuel Tine. and the families of his father, David , brothers, John Bunyan and Robert Fleming Owen are listed on the 1830 census

Pike County, Alabama census. Also living in same area were Kindred Karter

Knight and William Sanders, his brothers-in-law.

Allen Knight, the father of Sarah Ward Knight, died in Lowndes County,

Alabama in 1839.  Kindred Karter Knight was the administrator.  A summons

was made to Sarah Ward and Samuel Tine Owen  to appear before the Orphans

Court in Lowndes County to show why the real estate of Allen Knight should

not be sold. Each child of Allen Knight’s received $458.00 being “their full

distributive share of said estate” in February of 1843.  Also Samuel Tine

was paid for attending Allen Knight for services as a phisician for 18 days

and received $25.00 in 1841 for this.

By this time he and his family had removed to Randolph County, Alabama in

1840.  Samuel Tine is not found on the census there, but his father, David,

is.  A deed is found in Pike County  where they sold land owned jointly by

Samuel Tine, Priscilla S Owen, his sister, and  David Allen Owen to Abram

Cannon  approximately 100 acres for five hundred dollars. Kindred K.

Knight, William Sanders,  Daniel W. Cannon and John A. Williams sign as

witnesses. The deed was dated 12 of February 1840 and recorded 14 May 1840.

William Sanders also sold 39 97/100 acres to Cannon on January 29 1840 to

which David A. Owen was witness. No deed was found to show when they

obtained it.

The records of the Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church of Christ in Randolph

County show they were in that county by Saturday June 1840 when the

following were received into the church: Polly Owen, S.T. Owen, Sally W.

Owen, Elender Owen, and David R. (A?) Owen.  On October 3, 1840 Samuel T.

Owen was appointed Clerk of the Church.

He served as Tax Collector and Justice of the Peace in Randolph County in

1843.  He ran as Democrat for the Alabama Legislature and defeated Whig

candidate,  Jerry Murphy.  He served in the Assembly in Montgomery in

1845-47.

On November 2, 1850, he and other family members received letters of

dismission from the church.  In the minutes, Samuel Tine states:

“This closes my clerkship for Shiloh Church, and I hope my brethren

will excuse all my imperfections. Farewell. Samuel T. Owen.”

However, they did not leave immediately as he and most of his children and

families were on the 1850 Randolph County, Alabama census which was not

taken until December 3, 1850. The families Of his son, David Allen Owen and

Kindred K. Knight and Stephen Bradley were already in Smith County, Texas

as evidenced by the  1850 Census  taken  several  months earlier.

Before they left a church was constituted by the group known as Pilgrim’s

  1. Samuel Tine and Sarah Owen with his

brother, John Bunyan Owen arrived in Henderson County sometime early in

1851. He became involved in politics soon after his arrival and was elected

Chief Justice (county judge) and was sworn  in 12 August 1852 by Chief

Justice J. B. Luker.

After his arrival here, Samuel T. Owen made application for a Bounty Land

Claim which act was passed in 1851.  He served in the Creek War as private

under Captain James McDougal in Captain Denisons’s Company of the Alabama

Militia from 9th June to 28 July 1836.  He was drafted from Pike County,

Alabama on May of 1836 and honorably discharged at Montgomery, Alabama on or about 1 July 1836.

The dates on the application and official rolls do not agree, but he first

made this claim to E.L. Smith, J. P. on the 5 December 1851.  The original

discharge paper was given to his attorney, Wm. H. Martin, who ,on the 9

December 1851, made oath that he had received it, and in his negligence,

had lost it.

On the 24th April 1855 Samuel Tine made another application for bounty land under Act of March 3, 1855 and declared that he received a warrant for 40 acres under under the former and sold it to Wm C. Bobo, but he could not

remember the number.  He was entitled to more land and according to

official records received 120 acres No. 10 in 1856.

Samuel Tine Owen died in 1856 and is buried in the Davis Cemetery  in

Athens, Texas beside his wife, Sarah Ward Knight Owen who lived until 18

October 1882.  A rock cairn marked the graves until several years ago when

descendants placed a monument there.

Sallie Ward Knight kept a Bible record of all the births and deaths of

their twelve children, some of which she outlived. In one entry , she made

the statement ” this day Jan. 2, 1848, all my children, sons-in-law,

daughters-in-law, and their children , dined with me , thirty-one in all ,

twelve of whom are members of the Primitive Baptist Church.

This group was known as the Broughton- Couliette party, and Nathaniel Broughton’s son Edward Thomas Broughton married Rachel Winborne, the granddaughter of John Owen of Chester Co., S.C. and daughter of Dempsey Winborne, Jr. and Priscilla Owen. Winborne was also a Primitive Baptist Preacher.

On October 1817 Samuel T. Oweings signed a petition to the U.S. Congress with 363 Co-signers, inhabitants of Alabama Territory residing between and near the waters of Mobile and the Tombigee River, protesting the annexation of parts of Alabama to Mississipi. Another signer of this document was Dempsey Winborne, a Primitive Baptist Preacher, the son-in-law of John Owen of Chester County, S.C. who also was in the group that arrived in Monroe County, Alabama late 1816. The next record of Samuel Tine is in Monroe County when he signed a voucher for the sum of $1.00 he borrowed from Christopher Couliette. Also signing vouchers were David Owen, Robert Owen and John Owen. These were dated March and April 1818. (See later)

In 1821, Samuel Tine is found in Pike County, Alabama, listed among the 100 first settlers of that County. He was appointed as a commissioner to select a seat of Justice for Pike County. The deed written in long hand begins as follows: Know all men by these present that we , Samuel T. Owen, John Hanchy and Barnet Franklin, commissioners, duly appointed to select a seat of Justice for said County of Pike, for and consideration of sixty-two dollars to us in hand , paid by John C. Curtis, the receipt where of is hereby acknowledged. We do hereby acknowledge, give, grant, bargain, sell and confirm unto the said JohnC. Curtis, all those tracts or lots situated, lying and being in the town of Troy known and designated as lots no. one, three and four in Block A measuring ninety-three feet in front and depth. Each one will now fully appear by reference to the plan of said town.” The deed was written 6 October 1838 and recorded in Deed Bk A, p. 554-55.

The family of Samuel Tine. and the families of his father, David , brothers, John Bunyan and Robert Fleming Owen are listed on the 1830 census Pike County, Alabama census. Also living in same area were Kindred Karter Knight and William Sanders, his brothers-in-law.

Allen Knight, the father of Sarah Ward Knight, died in Lowndes County, Alabama in 1839. Kindred Karter Knight was the administrator. A summons was made to Sarah Ward and Samuel Tine Owen to appear before the Orphans Court in Lowndes County to show why the real estate of Allen Knight should not be sold. Each child of Allen Knight’s received $458.00 being”their full distributive share of said estate”in February of 1843. Also Samuel Tine was paid for attending Allen Knight for services as a phisician for 18 days and received $25.00 in 1841 for this.

By this time he and his family had removed to Randolph County, Alabama in 1840. Samuel Tine is not found on the census there, but his father, David, is. A deed is found in Pike County where they sold land owned jointly by Samuel Tine, Priscilla S Owen, his sister, and David Allen Owen to Abram Cannon .approximately 100 acres for five hundred dollars. Kindred K. Knight, William Sanders, Daniel W. Cannon and John A. Williams sign as witnesses. The deed was dated 12 of February 1840 and recorded 14 May 1840. William Sanders also sold 39 97/100 acres to Cannon on January 29 1840 to which David A. Owen was witness. No deed was found to show when they obtained it.

The records of the Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church of Christ in Randolph County show they were in that county by Saturday June 1840 when the following were received into the church: Polly Owen, S.T. Owen, Sally W. Owen, Elender Owen, and David R. (A?) Owen. On October 3, 1840 Samuel T. Owen was appointed Clerk of the Church.

He served as Tax Collector and Justice of the Peace in Randolph County in 1843. He ran as Democrat for the Alabama Legislature and defeated Whig candidate, Jerry Murphy. He served in the Assembly in Montgomery in 1845-47. On November 2, 1850, he and other family members received letters of dismission from the church. In the minutes, Samuel Tine states: “This closes my clerkship for Shiloh Church, and I hope my brethren will excuse all my imperfections. Farewell. Samuel T. Owen.” However, they did not leave immediately as he and most of his children and families were on the 1850 Randolph County, Alabama census which was not taken until December 3, 1850. The families Of his son, David Allen Owen and Kindred K. Knight and Stephen Bradley were already in Smith County, Texas as evidenced by the 1850 Census taken several months earlier.

Before they left a church was constituted by the group known as Pilgrim’s Rest, and Samuel T. was named clerk. Samuel Tine and Sarah Owen with his brother, John Bunyan Owen arrived in Henderson County sometime early in 1851. He became involved in politics soon after his arrival and was elected Chief Justice (county judge) andwas sworn in 12 August 1852 by Chief Justice J. B. Luker.

After his arrival here, Samuel T. Owen made application for a Bounty Land Claim which act was passed in 1851. He served in the Creek War as private under Captain James McDougal in Captain Denisons’s Company of the Alabama Militia from 9th June to 28 July 1836. He was drafted from Pike County, Alabama on May of 1836 and honorably discharged at Montgomery, Alabama on or about 1 July 1836.

The dates on the application and official rolls do not agree, but he first made this claim to E.L. Smith, J. P. on the 5 December 1851. The original discharge paper was given to his attorney, Wm. H. Martin, who ,on the 9 December 1851, made oath that he had received it, and in his negligence, had lost it.

On the 24th April 1855 Samuel Tine made another application for bounty land under Act of March 3, 1855 and declared that he received a warrant for 40 acres under under the former and sold it to Wm C. Bobo, but he could not remember the number. He was entitled to more land and according to official records received 120 acres No. 10 in 1856.

Samuel Tine Owen died in 1856 and is buried in the Davis Cemetery in Athens, Texas beside his wife, Sarah Ward Knight Owen who lived until 18 October 1882. A rock cairn marked the graves until several years ago when descendants placed a monument there.

From Bonner Frizzell, Excerpts from Genealogical Data, Aug. 21 1955

In 1850 a covered wagon caravan of some 150 persons, led by Samuel Tine Owen with his brother John Bunyan Owen and brother-in-law Kindred K. Knight, left Randolph County, AL and settled near Athens in Henderson County, Texas. Prior to their departure, members of Shilo Church, addiliated with the Keheukee Primitive Baptist Asso., called a presbytery and formed Pilgrims Rest Primitive Baptist Church in Randolph Co., AL. The new congregation chose Samuel Tine Owen as Secretary, called Thomas Britton as Pastor and moved as a body to Texas.

Letter to Dr. Nettie Lee Benson from Jack Owen, Athens, TX June 7 1954

Excerpts of genealogical interest copied here:

. . . compiled by “Coz” Bonner Frizzell of Palestine, Texas . . .

. . . the “tradition” information as compiled – the Larkin Owen Family record compares nearly identical with the stories handed down by word of mouth to our people, though I don’t think there is any written record to bear out the stories. . . . Suffice to say tho, our tradition tells of three brothers who came to America and Settled first in Virginia, then So. Carolina – some fought in the battle of Kings Mountain [there is a record at Kings Mountain of a John Owen fighting in thes battle of the Revolutionary War - kg] and probably other engagements. A large wagon train of the family crossed the mountains of Eastern Tennessee into Alabama. (There is a cute story told by some, that Mountain folk – of that part of the country had never seen a wagon with four wheels under it and a large group of them gathered and was following the wagon train. One of the leaders of the wagon train being a little dubious of such a large group of natives drew up and asked what was their purpose. They said they meant no harm – they were only following to watch what happened when those wagons started down hill – they reasoned that the big wheels were gonna run over the little front wheels.

My Great Grandfather Samuel Tine Owen must have been something of a student that be had the largest library in his country and even owned a telescope to look at the stars. – He served two terms in Alabama Legislature. My Grandfather David Allen Owen was born in Randolph Co. in 1818 in a log stockade during an indian uprising [unverified].

About 1849 or 50 a long wagon train of kin-folk and friends set out from Randolph County – presumably bound for California. (A cousin – Bessie Owen who died in Ft. Worth in 1940) said she became acquainted with some kinswoman in Altus OK about 1910 – who then an old woman – said she well remembered the day when that wagon train pulled out. The sad farewells – the tears, sorrows and heart break, left a vivid impression upon her memory – for they thought [and rightly so] that they were going out of their lives forever.

The wagon train suffered many hardships enroute – yellow fever broke out. Many died – among them my Grandfather’s first wife. They finally were compelled to pull up here in Henderson County – It seemed like a fair land – plenty of timber, running water, an abundance of game – they decided to settle down and they anchored their church “Old Pilgrims Rest” on Gum Creek about six miles east of Athens. They were all Primitive Baptists and their shuch was organized in Alabama and they brought their authority minutes etc. with them.

This same Samuel Tine Owen was soon taking a leading part in the affairs of the county and was elected “chief justice” or as we now say County Judge in 1852 – served two terms – I believe – later in 1860 my grandfather David Allen Owen (his son) was elected chief justice and served all during the war years – until the carpet baggers took over. His grandson Charles Dennis Owen was elected county judge in 1910 and was the main force in building our present county court house. And your writer was honored with three terms as county clerk – 1939 thru 44 – breaking a two term tradition that had stood for thirty years.

Our family holds an annual reunion 3rd Sunday in August . . .
