|Hartford Township, at the southwestern end of Pike County, is bounded by Indian and Ashley townships on the north, Lincoln County on the east, Montgomery and Lincoln Counties on the south, and Audrain County on the west.
In the early 1800's, the area abounded in both woodland and prairie, and therefore was attractive to early settlers who needed both for their dwellings and the pursuit of agriculture, Indian Creek, running through the township, empties into the Cuivre River, and it abounds in springs, the best known of which is Moore Spring, two miles south of the town of New Hartford.
The township had a few settlers as early as 1819, among which was the Mastin Moore family whose descendants still live in New Hartford 160 years later. Most of these settlers came from Virginia and Kentucky. John Keith, who arrived in the 1820's, was perhaps the first settler in what would become the town of New Hartford.
The township suffered from inaccessibility in its early history due to the lack of ground roads or rail service. The first gravel road in the township was built from Ashley to New Hartford in the early 1900's. Electricity came to the township in 1935, principally through the efforts of a resident, Mrs. Lyss Moore. Electricity was 32 years behind the telephone in Hartford Township, as the first telephone was introduced at New Hartford in 1903.
Hartford township even had its own amusement park. In 1911, William D. Motley cleared some of his property for this purpose. The amusement park was located south of New Hartford on the west bank of Indian Creek near the bridge. An ice house was constructed at the site to supply the needs of the community through the summer months; and cold soft drinks, lemonade, cigars and candy were available to the residents and tourists who would reportedly spend hours there playing croquet and pitching horse shoes. The amusement park was described as "an ideal place for school picnics, family reunions, and for gypsies to camp"!
Grain mills were a common sight in the Hartford township of the 19th Century, and there were horse-powered mills, as well as those powered by the water from Indian Creek. There was also one steam mill, operated by Wesley Cole and his son, Frank. Northeast of New Hartford was a sawing and grinding mill operated by Enoch Martin and later another mill owned by Dr. Kerr. In 1980 all of these mills have vanished.
The only two towns within Hartford township are Gazette and New Hartford.
Gazette, a small settlement in northwestern Hartford township, once had a post office, telephone office, general store, blacksmith, a few churches and rural schools. Mrs. Charley (Carrie) Moore, who lived in this area for over 65 years, remembers Gazette: "a wonderful place to trade. The store carried most anything a farmer needed from eggs to all kinds of poultry, cream and feathers." Mrs. Moore recalls when Gazette had a rural mail route and one star route from Vandalia, Missouri, and the mail carriers traveled in two-wheel carts, as all of the roads were dirt. Mrs. Moore attended the Rudd school and remembers walking to school. The teacher arrived early to start the wood stove burning. All eight grades were together, and the one teacher often had as many as 30 students. The old Trower school, which is also in this area, later became the building for the Gazette Baptist Church. While the churches still stand, the other facilities, which once made up the town of Gazette, have long since ceased functioning.
New Hartford, the larger town in Hartford township, is located along Indian Creek. Although the area where New Hartford stands was first settled in 1819 or 1820, the town did not receive its name until it was divided into plots in 1871 by Judge A. J. Davis. Prior to that time, the small settlement was known as the Paxton Store crossroads. New Hartford received its name from the township of which it is a part.
New Hartford has been since its beginning, and remains in 1981, primarily an agricultural area. John Parsons from Virginia, the first carpenter who came to New Hartford, arrived in 1830. Soon blacksmith shops and machine shops were established there, and New Hartford became a center of commerce and trade. Lodge buildings, churches and a school were constructed and a post office was established for the village of New Hartford on April 8, 1867. There was even a hotel in town. New Hartford was kept from blossoming, however, by the poor road system leading to major markets and the lack of rail service in the township through the 1800's. In the 1980's New Hartford consists of a grocery, a post office, a community hall, the New Hartford Baptist Church and some 30 inhabitants. The early schoolhouse built in 1820 is long since gone, and the rural school most recently used is now a residence with the school children from Hartford being bussed to Bowling Green for their education.>
From Isobel Madsen, pp. 28-30:
p. 28--“John Shawhan Smith, son of Nancy Shawhan Smith and Nicholas Smith, was born in Bourbon County, Ky., on Nov. 25, 1820. He married Melvina Hinkson (records spell the name with a “t”, Hinkston), born in Bourbon County, Oct. 9, 1830. From “Hist. of Kentucky” by Collins, pp. 71 and 73, she is given as the daughter of John Hinkston, the creek (Hinkston Creek) and Hinkston Station (still bearing his name) as named for him in 1799, and his cabin was named Hinkston’s cabin in 1775. [NOTE--no such reference is found in Collins. The reference does mention John Hinkson and makes the distinction of the use of the “t” , but there is no mention of Melvina Hinkson as a daughter of John Hinkson--REF] John and Melvina were married Nov. 10, 1850.
“Miss Elizabeth Steele, Librarian of the Duncan Tavern Historical Library, Paris, Ky., has known the story of the Hinkston’s all her life, and there are still members of the family’s original ten children of John Hinkston living in Bourbon County now. There is a John Hinkston still living there, a descendant of the original John Hinkston.
p. 29. “Melvina Hinkston Smith died after the birth of Nicholas, on Nov. 26, 1863. During one of the coldest and bitterest winters of Missouri History, John Shawhan Smith married for the second wife, on Jan. 14, 1872, a native of Missouri, Maul Taul (born Aug. 28, 1841). To Mary Taul Smith and John Shawhan Smith one more son was born, Charles Taul Smith, Oct. 8, 1876.
“A portrait of John Shawhan Smith, said to be a fine likeness of him after the age of fifty, is in the home of Sally Jackson Smith, his granddaughter (Mrs. Sally Branstetter), 5541 St. Louis, Mo. [NOTE--a hand-written note after the paragraph reads: I never saw in my life--a mistake--sister Mary(?) surely had it.]
p. 30. “The marriages and families of the children of John Shawhan Smith, and Melvina Hinkston, are as follows:
“Nancy Shawhan Smith (called by us “Aunt Sis” all her lifetime that we knew her) married her first cousin, Humphrey Hinkston, Dec. 8, 1867. Three children were born to them; Henry Hinkston, Melvina Hinkston, [and] John Hinkston (this was the John Hinkson who now lives in Warren, Ohio, with surviving members of his own family). After the death of Humphrey Hinkston, Nancy Shawhan Smith Hinkston married a second time, William T. Vanarsdale, a native of Pike County (known to us as Uncle Billie, a scholarly old man with a flair for inventing contraptions to make work easy around his farm near New Hartford, Mo., helped in his work by Uncle Nick, who was Nancy’s bachelor brother, the one who was said to be “lazy as a nigger” because he was breast-fed by a colored woman as a baby). To William T. Vanarsdale and Nancy Shawhan Smith Hinkston Vanarsdale, was born one son, “Willie” Vanarsdale, who still lives on the old farm. Willie has been twice married, and by his first wife, Stella, had two golden-haired daughters with whom we played as children. They grew up and married, and after Stella died, we lost track of them. Uncle Willie preceded his wife in death, Nancy died August 11, 1929. She was said to have resembled her grandmother, the first Nancy Shawhan, all her life, even into old age. The protrait of her, as a little girl in hoop skirts, previously mentioned, is now in possession of Willie T. Vanarsdale, and his second wife, on the farm near New Hartford, Mo. It is likely to be handed on to one of the granddaughters.
p. 31. “John Thomas Smith, born Jan. 30, 1854, see later.
“Margaret Smith, born Oct. 7, 1857, married Wesley Trower, on Feb. 24, 1875, and they lived with their children in Vandalia, Mo. There we visited them often with my mother, and there stayed sometimes Great grandmother Sarah A. Butler Trower, about whom more later. Margaret Smith and Wesley Trower had seven children; Albert, Larry, Ralph, Edna, Jessie, Vernie, and Dot.
“Emma K. Smith, born June 3, 1861, married Charles Wright on Sept. 3, 1878, and they had a large farm and a large family in Pike County. There used to be a number of Wrights visit us when they came into Bowling Green, Missouri, where we lived, the county seat. They were a hearty, healthy family. Emma K. Smith and Charlie Wright had five children, Edward, Beulah, Oscar, Zora, and Abbie.
“Nicholas M. Smith, born Oct. 31, 1863, never married, but visited among his sisters, spending most of his time with Nancy and her husband, “Uncle Billie.” He was buried in the Old Settlers Graveyard, lnown as the “Smynra” Churchyard, where many of the same family are buried.
“The D. A. R., who has many records of old graveyards, have covered Smyrna.
On December 9, 1850 John Shawhan first married Melvina HINKSON, daughter of Humphrey HINKSON (circa 1805-before 1850) & Nancy RAVENSCRAFT (about 1812-after 1850), in Harrison County, Kentucky.99 Melvina was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on October 9, 1832. Melvina died in Lewis County, Missouri, on November 26, 1863; she was 31. Melvina was buried in Sharpe-Hinkson Cemetery, Lewis County, Missouri.
The Western Citizen, Friday, December 9, 1850: Marriages--On Tuesday evening last by Elder G. B. Moore, John Smith of this county to Miss Malvina Hinkson of Harrison County.
April 9, 2001:
New data indicates that Melvina was probably, in fact, the daughter of Humphrey Hinkson and Nancy Ravenscraft, as first reported. The data is as follows:
The 1840 Census doesn't list wives' or children's names, so I checked the 1850 Harrison County Census and found Melvina there, as follows
The 1840 Census of Harrison County shows only one Hinkson/Hinkston family, as follows --
1840 Federal Census, Harrison County, Kentucky:
Humphrey Hinkson household:
1 male age 0-5
1 male age 5-10
2 males age 30-40
1 female age 0-5
1 female age 5-10
1 female age 30-40
This is very good circumstantial evidence that Melvina was the daughter of Humphrey and Nancy Hinkston/Hinkson, although the 1840 census doesn't prove that Melvina is the 5-10 year-old female in this household.
I'm guessing that Thomas Hinkson was the other 30-40 year-old male in this household and probably a brother to Humphrey, although that doesn't quite gibe with Thomas' age as listed in the 1850 Census. (But then, such age discrepancies are not that unusual in census records.)
Hope this is of some help.

Biography: NICHOLAS SMITH III104
Nicholas Smith III was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky in 1823, the third child of Nicholas and Nancy Smith. Although he was raised on a farm, he became a carpenter. A marriage bond was filed December 2,1844 for the marriage of Nicholas to Amanda Allison. The bridegroom posted his own bond as his father had died in 1835 when he was twelve. Since Amanda's father had apparently died prior to 1840, her grandfather John Shawhan also signed as a bondsman.
The marriage of Nicholas Smith III and Amanda Allison was solemnized on December 5 1844 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Amanda was born in Kentucky in 1826, the oldest of three daughters born to Aaron (?) Allison and Susan Shawhan. (see separate section on the Shawhans). Amanda's younger sisters were: Margaret, who later married a Hinkston, and Mary Ann (Molly) who married Henry Ewalt. Nicholas and Amanda were first cousins as their mothers were sisters. This seems strange but was not unusual for a time when rural homesteads were miles apart and neighbors depended on each other and formed close ties, but it does make it complicated for genealogists. The big farms bordering the Smith's were then owned by Sarah Ewalt, William David, Henry David, and Daniel Shawhan.
Three children were born to the couple: John Oscar, (1845) (The author's great-grandfather), Margaret, (Maggie A. 1847), and Nicholas IV, (1848). Tragedy struck this young couple when their youngest son Nicholas died in 1853 at five years of age. Just two years later, on November 2,1855, Nicholas III died suddenly at the age of 32, when John Oscar was ten and Maggie was eight.
There is record of a premarital contract dated October 28,1858 between Amanda M. Smith and Richard J. Wisden. It stipulated Amanda would retain use, control, and profits from property she had previously owned, or expected ultimately to inherit including her own dower rights. The attesting witnesses were her mother Susan Allison and H. Ewalt. Acting as trustee, "I except the forgoing trust," was nephew Daniel B. Shawhan, who lived on adjacent property. The contract was certified by county clerk Richard J. Brown but the marriage apparently never took place.
The 1860 census indicates that Amanda's son John Oscar, fifteen years old, was by then a ward of Willis D. Collins who was an officer of the court. Amanda was living with her cousin Catherine Batterson who was also a widow and owned a farm near Shawhan's Station. The census also showed Amanda to be a "farm laborer." A deed of sale dated November 7, 1868 shows that John Oscar sold 98 acres to his mother Amanda Allison Smith for $625. This was his allotment of dower property that he had inherited from his grandmother Nancy Smith. There was also a land transfer dated September 25, 1893 by Amanda M. Smith, Margaret A. David, and her husband William H. David. Thirty Acres of land was being transferred to a Thomas Doolin of Bourbon County, Kentucky for a sum of $1400 as described: Lot #3 of the division of land of Nicholas Smith, except for the family graveyard one rod by two rods on said premises. There was one thousand cash in hand, and balance of $400 due on or before March 1, 1894, bearing 6% interest.
Amanda lived with her daughter after Maggie A. lost her husband William H. David, and kept house for her and her seven children. Amanda died about 1905 in Harrison County, Kentucky when she was around 80 years old.
On December 5, 1844 Nicholas married Amanda M. ALLISON (128) , daughter of Frances Or Aaron ALLISON (1799-before 1850) & Susan SHAWHAN (31) (March 1806-). Amanda M. was born in 1824.51 Amanda M. died in Harrison County, Kentucky, circa 1905; she was 81.
