Cause of Death: dropsy

 Notes for JULIET E. HOWARD:

From notes of Harvey Butcher:

Juliet was raised on a tobacco plantation on the creek in Elliott Co KY.

Cornelius was a slave owner. The slaves took the name of their master “Howard”. I have made several visits to the former plantation. The Cornelius house is still standing. It was of log construction with weahterboard siding added since my first visit in 1936. Cornelius freed his slaves before the civil warm and most of his slaves later settled in the area of Burlington Ohio. I received this information from George Walter Adkins when I visited him in 1936. George was an old man then and told many stories about the old plantation.

Notes for LOUISIANA WILKS:

Notes of Harvey Butcher:

She and her husband purchased land about 1/2 mile above their home. After her husband died, she and her 3 sons, Mat, Mart and Ben, moved up there. The old homestead was dismantled and a new 2 story replaced it in 1935. My father bacame the owner and raised his family there. Grandmother died in March 1933. She was a great christian lady – a hard worker. She loved to talk about the times when she grew up and also her childhood. She lived with us a large part of her time – so I became very close to her. She and her husband were pro union and against slavery. When John Wilkes Booth killed Lincoln many of the Wilkes family left the “e” out of the name Wilkes because John Wilkes Booth was a descendent of the Wilkes family which was a prominent family in England and the ancestors of Benjamine.

Worked on the railroad in Peach Creek. Was crossing the river coming home from work when he drowned. Directly across the river from where the old round house stood, there was a whirlpool. He drowned at this location.

Aunt Butchie witnessed the incident. This location is just down river from

the mouth of Peach Creek

He is buried in the Union Missionary Baptist Church cemetery at Bradrick Ohio (intersection of routes 7 , Ohio River Road, and 243, Greasy Ridge). The grave is not marked. No one knows where it is any more. I was there once with Dad and Uncle Mart but dad does not remember the exact location.

 

More information on the location: on top of hill next to tree line is a grave stone for MUNSELL. Facing this gravestone the grave is supposed to be 10 feet or so to the left.

From the records of Ben Hale:

 William Richard Hale, father of Ben Hale Sr. was born in Huntington, WVA, Sept 20, 1880. He was born out of wedlock. Because his mother had no way to care for him, she gave him away to strangers at age two. They lived out in the country and one day his grand father (A.J. Hale) came walking by not knowing he was there or that he had been given away. He recognized his grand father and grabbed him around the leg with both arms and would not let go. His grand father was several miles from home and tried to pursued him to stay there until he could go get a horse. The boy would have none of that. So he went home with his grand father and lived with them until about age 12 when he left because his uncle was mean to him. He lived with different families and helped on farms. At age 17 he was living with a family at the mouth of Charlie Creek, Sybene, Lawrence County, Ohio. He met Stella Butcher about that time. She also lived on Charlie Creek. Soon after that he went to the states of Oregon and Washington where he had an Uncle (Richard Hale) and worked in the wheat fields while there for two years, came back and dated Stella for a time. Went back to the west, stayed two or three more years. A while after he came back, he married Stella. He was one of the best men who ever lived. He was so kind and gentle. Good to his wife and children. He never used rough or fowel language, no profanity. He did not drink or use tobacco. He was an excellent worker, but slow an deliberate. He seemed to have a quite simple, happy peaceful life until he was drowned Oct, 17, 1921

Notes for IVADELL MOONEY:

Notes of Harvey Butcher:

Deanne is a very charming and intelligent student during her growing up. I was so closely associated with Ivadelle that she was as if one of my sisters. I so regarded Ivadelle, that I always thought of Deane as my niece. Deanne married a big strong, tall-husky boy from a very good family – the Ben Hunt family. Merrill was a fine athlete and a good moral boy, But I didn’t think he or any one was good enough for Deanne. Now that Merrill got into the family I see that Deanna was the lucky one. She and Merrill have two sons Merril and Andy – both good boys. Aunt Ella’s husband uncle Cad died while his children were very young. Ivadelle was six or 7 and Mathew about three. I attended his funeral which was preached in the Baptist Church, owned by Harden Smith and being used also as a school house on the Chesapeake airport. The funeral was preached by Baptist Preacher Joseph (Joe) McKee who was a Civil War Veteran.

Notes for BENJAMIN WILKES HALE , SR.:

When first married Ben and Bessie lived in West Logan. They rented a house, bought all the furniture, bough food, then had a Preacher come there and marry them. They later moved to Mud Fork to be closer to Ben’s work where he was a meat cutter for Island Creek Stores at Verdunville.

They moved to Aricoma and lived only a few months. Then built a new house on High Street. (84 High Street where they lived from 1939 until 1947). Kiser Hale, Bessie’s father built the house at a cost of $1,300. It was a nice little two bedroom house next door to Bessie’s parents.

They next moved to West Logan just up the hill from the old home place.

Richard says they moved to West Logan in 1945 because he started first grade in West Logan. Ben says it was 46.

In 1950 they bought a partially complete house in Justice Addition where they

Moved in 1950. This house is just below and across the street from the grade school. They sold this house and moved to Huntington in 1953.
