“Widow or widower” written at the bottom of the marriage certificate. Groom of Bourbon County, bride of Harrison County.
On December 5, 1844 Amanda M. first married Nicholas SMITH III (112) , son of Nicholas SMITH Jr. (1787-November 24, 1834) & Nancy SHAWHAN (27) (October 9, 1799-December 14, 1882). Nicholas was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on July 1, 1823.51 Nicholas died in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on November 9, 1855; he was 32.102 Nicholas was buried in Smith Family Burial Ground, Shawhan, Kentucky.103 Occupation: Carpenter.51
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.
They had the following children:

282 i. John Oscar (1845-1897)

283 ii. Margaret A. (1847-)

iii. Nicholas. Nicholas was born in 1848. Nicholas died in 1853; he was 5.

iv. Nancy E. Nancy E. was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on April 19, 1852. Nancy E. died in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on October 6, 1854; she was 2. Nancy E. was buried in Smith Family Burial Ground, Shawhan, Kentucky.

Notes on Nancy E. Smith:

This child was to family researchers until October, 1999, when Tom and Bob Francis uncovered her grave in the Smith Family Burial Ground, Shawhan, Kentucky.

On October 28, 1858 Amanda M. second married Richard J. WISDOM, in Bourbon County, Kentucky.


129. Margaret ALLISON (Susan SHAWHAN5, John4, Daniel3, Daniel2, Darby1). Margaret was born in 1826.
Notes: The marriage of Margaret Allison to John Hinkson is based upon circumstantial evidence. The “Hinkson” connection came from various genealogies (Madsen, Norton, etc) which named Margaret as “Margaret Hinkson” which I originally thought of as a middle name (i.e., Margaret Hinkson Allison). However, recent documents from Bourbon County, Kentucky, court records, plus reference to the Hinkson surname in the John Shawhan family cemetery convinced me that perhaps Margaret had married a Hinkson.
The following court records clearly indicate this connection:
Bourbon County Court, Order Book “R”, 420:

At the called term of the Bourbon County court held at the Court House in Paris Kentucky on Saturday August 5 1865...present Hon. Wm. M. Samuel, Pres. Judge M. Shawhan, gdn. Given Amanda Hinkson minor of John Hinkson and heir at law of Margaret Shawhan Dec’d above the age of fourteen years came into court and made choice of William H. Speaks as her guardian. Whereupon the said Wm. H. Speaks and Henry Lear (Lair?) his sureties, executed bond to the Commonwealth of Kentucky conditioned agreable (sic) to law, which said bond is duly stamped.


Bourbon County Court, Order Book “S”, 318:

At a called term of the Bourbon County Court Ky held at the Courthouse in the city of Paris January 13th 1869:

Susan A. Speaks Gdn (plaintiff) against William H. Speaks (deft)

This cause having been heard and the Court being advised, ordered that Mr. Wm. H. Speaks Gdn. Amanda Hinkson, pay to J.T. Speaks the present guardian of said Amanda, a resident of the State of Missouri the sum of five hundred and one 57/100 dollars. And the said Wm. H. Speaks is hereby removed as Gdn. of said Amanda and discharged from further responsibility in relation to her estate, having filed his receipt for said amount in a settlement of Nov. 6, 1868, and the cause is dismissed.


Order Bk “S,” 320:

At the county Court held for Bourbon County Ky. at the courthouse in the city of Paris on Monday February 1st 1869:

Settlements, O.L.O.: The following settlements returned into Court and ordered to lie over, viz;

W.H. Speaks Gdn. for Amanda S. Hinkston Heir Jn. Hinkston


Order Bk “S,” 330:

At the county Court held for Bourbon County Ky. at the courthouse in the city of Paris on Monday March 1st 1869:

Settlements O.R.: The following settlements returned and ordered to lie over last term were this day examined by the court approved of and ordered to be recorded, viz;

W.H. Speaks Gdn. for Amanda S. Hinkston Heir Jn. Hinkston


Another piece of evidence which strongly suggests the marriage of Margaret Allison to John Hinkson is a gravestone in the John Shawhan Family Cemetery which reads:

“Samuel, son of J. & M. Hinkson born Oct. 19, 1848 died Jan. 28, 1852.


Margaret first married Henry EWALT.
Margaret second married John HINKSON.
They had the following children:

i. Samuel. Samuel was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on October 19, 1848. Samuel died in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on January 28, 1852; he was 3. Samuel was buried in John Shawhan Family Cemetery.

ii. Amanda. Amanda was born circa 1851.
