Subject: [Clark-Clarke] Bible that belonged to Benjamin B Clark, inscribed April 19, 1887

Date: Mon, 19 May 2003 08:48:18 EDT
I have a Holy Bible inscribed to Benjamin B Clark, April 19, 1887. The first

page says S.S. Teacher's Edition, appointed to be read in Churches.

Inside: To the Most High and Mighty Prince James, By the Grace of God, King

of Great Britain, Frances and Ireland, Defender of the Faith,


I bought this bible and 3 others thru Ebay. This was the only book inscribed

and since I have a Clark ancestry, I could not pass up the opportunity to

have this bible which must have belonged to a clergyman.
Does anyone have a Benjamin that fits?

John R. Clark, Benjamin Clark b Va New

josweethomealabama (View posts) Posted: 12 Oct 2006 8:20PM

Classification: Query

Surnames: clark

I am looking for info on John R. Clark and Benjamin Clark who are on the 1840 C through the 1870 C in Calhoun Co. John was a planter in Jacksonville and Benjamin was a "Hotel Keeper" on the 1860. My GGG Grandfather, William B. Clark b VA came to Calhoun Co. in 1870 from Harris Co. Ga. He was living near Benjamin Clark in Oxford or Dearmanville. William B. Clark's son, John Thomas Clark had come to this area on 1860 C as well as possibly his stepson, James Clark. I've just learned of the Seven Springs Cemetery in Jacksonville where a lot of Clarks are buried. Could someone tell me what would be cemeteries in the Oxford-Dearmanville area where Benjamin Clark and his family might be buried??? Thanks

Mary -- I went to the library today and was able to clear up some of your data. The 1900 U.S. census of the Chickasaw Nation, I.T., shows

that John Lord immigrated to the U.S. in 1862 and was naturalized in Pennsylvania. This was noted under the "Citizenship" category. He and Syntha (sic) were recorded in Twp. 4S, Range 1E, which appears to be just east of Lone Grove.

The index of Texas deaths shows that one C.M. Lord d. 28 Jul 1920 in Wichita Co., TX (certificate no. 24314). I tried to look up the cert.

but nos. 24001 to 25000 were missing on the microfilm. It should be on file in the county, or you can request a copy from the state. I hope

this helps -- Bobby

Hi, Mary -- I did find copies of our e-mail exchanges. Thanks for reminding me. It's so nice to know who you're talking to (again).

Cynthia Martha may be related to the Okie Nell bunch, but probably not closely. I do not have any record of a Mary Etta Gammon or any Gammon who married a Clark. I have corresponded with Charlotte Jarrell in the past. I am not sure if she made the connection between the Clark who posted the photo and the Clark who married her GG-grandfather. I think she just wanted to share. That's just a guess.

Did I send you the information from Cynthia Martha's death certificate?

I thought I had looked it up (28 Jul 1920 - Wichita Co., TX), but I cannot find my notes. I recently found her on the 1910 census in Fisher Co., TX, with her son-in-law, Charles C. Elrod (?). Does any of this help? Let me know. Thanks again -- Bobby

Truesdale branch Ireland>PA>OH

of 395


This information is from "Descendants of John Truesdale of Cumberland County" by Karl Truesdell, 1952 which is in the DAR library in Washington, DC. This John Truesdale was born about 1720 in County Down, Ireland and died about 1791 near Canonsburg, PA. This is close to Pittsburgh. He immigrated in 1771 with his grown-up family . They first settled in Cumberland County, PA on 200 acres on Sharman's Creek. He appears on tax lists and in the 1790 census in Cumberland County. He sold 322 acres on Sharman's Creek in 1791 and moved to Canonsburg where he died the same year. The second generation seemed to have kept together and moved on to Ohio. My own ancestors are from Wayne and Holmes Counties in Ohio.

Children of John Truesdale were:

Mary b.1744 Ireland, m. James Adair, d. 1824 Poland, PA

John, Jr. b 1745 Ireland, m. Hannah Robinson d. March 20, 1819 Austintown, OH

William b. ca 1760 Ireland m. Elizabeth McClure

Hugh b ca 1755 Ireland, m. Mary Lytle d.1814 Beaver, PA

Thomas b. 1751

In Reply to: Re: Truesdale branch Ireland>PA>OH by Graham Truesdale of 395

Graham

I'm not actually from the Irish line. My ancester was Samuel who came from England, but I printed out the Irish geneology, which my distant cousin Paul used to have on a website. According to it, John Truesdale of Kinghill, Clonduff, County Down, Ulster, Ireland came to America with his family aboard the brigantine "Free Mason" in 1772, and settled in South Carolina.



It's believed that the Irish branch descended from an English Truesdale Cromwellian soldier who settled into Ireland following his service. That would make you also my extemely distant cousin, as our families would merge somewhere back in England. The surname Truesdale ( with variations ) is a quite old one that has been traced to the area of Lincolnshire, England at the beginning of the 14th century.

My ancester Samuel and two of his sisters were evidently sent to America around 1654, by their parents, to live with their uncle in Newton, Mass. This was apparently done to save the children from the bubonic plague that was once again present in England, and from the civil unrest that accompanied it's resurgence, the entire family being unable to afford the passage. The rest of their family never did make it to America. But many lived to perpetuate the family in England.

Samuel's descendant's lived in the northern states and John's in the southern. Needless to say that the family unbeknowst to any of them found themselves on opposite sides in the American Civil War. John's family became prosperous plantation owners with many slaves. There is therefore a 3rd line of Truesdale's in America, this one being an African American one. Whether related by blood, or only by name, I don't know; since it was customary for slaves to use the surname of their plantation owner.

I hope you find all of this as interesting as I did. I'm not sure what happened to Paul's website. He was in the process of moving it to another server on the web when it just vanished. In a lot of respects, I found the Irish American branch to be more interesting then the English one. No wonder the stereo-types persist. We are a little "dry" I fear.


Your Distant American Cousin,
Shirley (Truesdale) Lockwood

This list of names was copied from the papers of the British War Department. There is nothing to indicate what became of any of these prisoners, whether they died, escaped, or were exchanged. The list seems to have been carelessly kept, and is full of obvious mistakes in spelling the names. Yet it shall be given just as it is, except that the names are arranged differently, for easier reference. This list of prisoners is the only one that could be found in the British War Department. What became of the lists of prisoners on the many other prison ships, and prisons, used by the English in America, we do not know."

Lord name meaning

English: nickname from the vocabulary word lord, presumably for someone who behaved in a lordly manner, or perhaps one who had earned the title in some contest of skill or had played the part of the ‘Lord of Misrule’ in the Yuletide festivities. It may also have been an occupational name for a servant in the household of the lord of the manor, or possibly a status name for a landlord or the lord of the manor himself. The word itself derives from Old English hlaford, earlier hlaf-weard, literally ‘loaf-keeper’, since the lord or chief of a clan was responsible for providing food for his dependants.

Mary -- I went to the library today and was able to clear up some of

your data. The 1900 U.S. census of the Chickasaw Nation, I.T., shows

that John Lord immigrated to the U.S. in 1862 and was naturalized in

Pennsylvania. This was noted under the "Citizenship" category. He and

Syntha (sic) were recorded in Twp. 4S, Range 1E, which appears to be

just east of Lone Grove.

The index of Texas deaths shows that one C.M. Lord d. 28 Jul 1920 in

Wichita Co., TX (certificate no. 24314). I tried to look up the cert.

but nos. 24001 to 25000 were missing on the microfilm. It should be on

file in the county, or you can request a copy from the state. I hope

this helps -- Bobby

Re: Elrod Genealogy

Posted by: Mike Marshall Date: March 11, 1998 at 22:23:08



In Reply to: Elrod Genealogy by Charles E. Elrod of 1308
The Elrod and Lerchenzeiler families were almost surely German in origin. Johan Dider Elrod and his wife, Maria Magdalena Lerchenzeiler, were listed among the so-called "fifth party" of Palatines that sailed from Holland to London, England on 15 Jul 1709. Maria Magdalena was the daughter of Johan Wilhelm Lerchenzeiler and his wife, Susanna Catharina, both of whom were also listed as members of the fifth party. Since Dider and Maria Magdalena were married at the time they sailed for London, it is highly probable that the Elrods and Lerchenzeilers came from the same village in Germany. Now, the communicant records of of Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church in New Castle County, Delaware have been transcribed by Courtland B. and Ruth L. Springer in "Delaware History," published by the Historical Society of Delaware, Old Town Hall (Wilmington DE, 1952-53), Vol. 5. In a footnote to their transcriptions, Courtland and Ruth Springer note that the faithful communicant, Johan Wilhelm Lerchenzeiler, was sometimes erroneously recorded in the records as "John Hindrich Lerchenzeiler," and sometimes simply as "Lerchenzeiler," or "the GERMAN Lerchenzeiler." [emphasis my own]. So, from the Old Swedes communicant records, we know Lerchenzeiler was a German and from this we can deduce that Elrod was also. Where were they from? A possible answer can be found in in a German manuscript entitled, "Stamm Baum, Der Frankischen Linnie Der Familie Ellrod," which I believe loosely translates to "Family Tree of the Franconia Line of the Ellrod Family." This book or play was dedicated to Count Phillip Andreas Von Ellrodt in 1763. Information in this manuscript indicates the Elrod family may have originated in the area of the Principality of Bayreuth, bordering the Upper Franconia (or Bavarian) Palatinate. The account in this manuscript begins with a Jacob Ellrod b. 7 Nov 1601, who was a tailor in Culmbach (Kulm) located in middle Franconia. Another clue to the German origin of the Elrod and Lerchenzeiler families may be found in the will of Johan Wilhelm Lerchenzeiler dated 5 Sep 1745 and proved 29 Jun 1747. This will mentions his son-in-law Johan Michael Sigmund. The name John Michel Sigmund can be found in the second list of Palatines taken at Walworth, England 27 May 1709 where he is listed as a baker, age 27 (b.c. 1682) accompanied by a wife and son age 1 year old. This suggests the possibility that Sigmund had married a daughter of Lerchenzeiler while they were still living in Germany and that they too probably lived in the same village or area. German church records mention a Johannes Michael Sigmon. Two different dates of christening are mentioned for him. One is 14 Jan 1710, the other 22 Oct 1713. His parents are listed as Bartholomaei and Anna Eva Bayern, Ffalz, Kuebelbe. This later John Michael Sigmon may be a relative of the son-in-law of Lerchenzeiler. Also interesting is a record of the emigration to Pennsylvania in 1751 of a John Michael Lerchenzeiler.
