Bob: Thank you for sending me the James Beckett file. I have not had time to completely read everything in it but I do have some of the information as I had bought the book from Harold Beckett.
I have Family Tree Maker on my computer and I think I am suppose to be able to export some of my files but I have tried numerous times to do it and so far it has not worked. So I hope you don't mind but I will have to just type out my families information.
As you can tell by my information my greatgrandfather James Beckett moved to Yates Center and then died shortly afterwards. My other greatgrandparents also moved to Yates Center so I have a rich heritage of relatives that lived in Woodson County, Kansas. My mother died when I was 9 and I use to feel that I couldn't go anywhere but what one of my older relatives were there to tell me how to behave. Of course, in the 50's this was done alot more so than now.
I will give you the birth and death dates of my dad's siblings and also of some of their children.

Family of Joseph SHAWHAN (49) & Sarah "Sally" NESBITT

164. John SHAWHAN (Joseph5, Joseph4, Daniel3, Daniel2, Darby1). John was born in Lenoxburg, Bracken County, Kentucky, on May 5, 1836. John died in Hamilton, Butler County, Ohio, on December 10, 1923; he was 87.
The 1850 Census shows John as the son of Joseph Shawhan and his wife, Sarah, living in Bracken Co., KY; the 1860 Census lists John and his wife, Mary Ann, as living in Mt. Sterling, Switzerland Co., IN. During the Civil War, John enlisted in Co. D, 10th Indiana Calvary, Union Army. These troopers fought in numerous battles throughout the South, including against Forest at Pulaski, TN, at Nashville, at Franklin, at Vicksburg, and at the capture of Mobile, AL in April 1865. While he was away on duty, his wife Mary Ann was killed by marauding soldiers; it is whether the murder occurred in Indiana or Kentucky or whether the killers were Union or Confederates. John himself contracted a severe case of diarrhea, was hospitalized in Vicksburg after its capture by the Union Army, but survived to return to the care of his children and to remarry. He subsequently submitted several pension applications, signed with his mark, beginning in April 1892, when he was in Lenoxburg, KY, thru April 1915, in Moscow, Clermont Co., OH, claiming disability as a result of his CW illness, suffering from "Chronic Diarhea, Disease of Rectum, Rheumatism, and General Disability". A final record, obtained from the National Archives, indicates that he eventually received a pension of $72.00/month, which ceased after "the pensioner's death on Dec. 11, 1923". His military service record shows him as enlisting on Nov. 29, 1863, and describes him as being "27 yrs old, 5'7", dark complexion, black eyes, dark hair". He was shown as being "Absent Sick" from June-August 1864, with mention of being in Pulaski, TN, and also being sick from Jan. 1965 until his discharge in St. Louis, MO, in May 1965, as "unwell", with mention that he had been in the hospital in Vicksburg, MS. After the War, he returned to Bracken Co., KY, where he married Patience Waller. In about 1898 he moved to Moscow, Clermont Co., OH, where he was listed in the 1900 Census, and then to Hamilton, Butler Co., Ohio, where he died; he was buried back in Lenoxburg, Bracken Co., KY.
Mary Ann was supposedly killed by marauding soldiers during the Civil War -- it is not known whether they were Union or Confederate troops. It is not definitely known at this time whether she was killed in Indiana or Kentucky; the evidence suggests that she may have returned to Kentucky, probably to her parents' locale in Pendleton Co., KY, after her husband John was called into the Union Army in Indiana. Pendleton Co. was the scene of some vicious raids by both Union and Confederate renegades during the War, and her death may have occured during such fighting.
On April 22, 1854 John first married Mary Ann SNOW, daughter of William SNOW & Mary McPHERSON, in Bracken County, Kentucky. The marriage bond was signed by Daniel T. Snow, Mary Ann's brother; a, William Snow was in attendance. Mary Ann was born in Bracken County, Kentucky, in 1837. Mary Ann died in Pendleton County, Kentucky, about 1864; she was 27.

Family of Henry Ewalt SHAWHAN (50) & Mary VARNON

166. Mary “Mollie” SHAWHAN (Henry Ewalt5, Joseph4, Daniel3, Daniel2, Darby1).
This old house is located about seven miles from Cynthiana on the Jacksonville Road. It has been in the family of Mrs. Agnes McDowell for 72 years, but its ancient log rooms were evidently built by Jacob David in the very early 1800's. The land on which it stands is part of the original Samuel McMillan-Matthew Patterson claim.
Jacob David bought it from them in 1813. He paid $625 for 200 acres. (Jacob David was a son of the William David who before 1774 settled the farm in the crook of the South Licking River near Shawhan and now owned by his great-great-great - granddaughter, Mrs. J. W. Dalzelle.) Jacob David had seven children, Sara (Mrs. Henry Spears), Mary (Mrs. John Mock), Catherine (Mrs. William Cox), William, Thomas, Simon (father of Mrs. Tom Megibben) and David. Mrs. M. S. Foster (Lucille Lail) of Cynthiana is a direct descendant of Jacob David.

In 1828 after the death of Jacob, his heirs sold 30 acres including this house to Ben Sutton for $600. Sutton kept it for three years, then sold it to Thomas Duff Urmston for $590. Urmston's father was one of the founders of Chillicothe, Ohio, and his brother was the first white child born there. Young Tom Urmston had started a tannery near Jacksonville soon after his arrival in Kentucky, but found that his vats built in that soil would not hold water. So in 1831 he moved to this old place and again set up for business. Several hundred yards from the house he built a tanyard beside the old road and here tanned his leather and made it up into shoes, boots, saddles, harness and collars. He also built a store and curry shop beside the tannery.


In 1857 tanbark became scarce, so he built another tanyard at Claysville and there made his vats of solid rock, piping his water supply from above. This was one of the first instances of piping water in Kentucky. He brought tanbark from down the river by flatboat and in six-horse wagons hauled the tanned hides the long miles back to his farm to be made into leather products. Then he'd haul it back to Claysville, take it by flatboat to Cincinnati, sell it and return with merchandise for his store. He thus built up a large and lucrative business.
He married Eliza Harcourt in 1825 and set up housekeeping in the original log rooms which were there when he bought the place in 1831. The original rooms were, the large room on the right now used by the McDowells as a living room, a bedroom above it, an upper and lower hall on the left and a kitchen in the rear, separated from the main house. He soon made the space between the kitchen and the house into a dining room and built the large room on the left and the two bedrooms above it. And here he reared his two sons, William D. and John W. In addition to all his other activities, he farmed his 140 fertile acres surrounding the old house and named the place "Union Villa." He was a Democrat and a prominent member of the Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church at Broadwell. He died at the age of 82 and the place was sold.
His son, William D. married and built the old stone house now occupied by the Joe Middens. There he reared his two daughters, Elizabeth (Mrs. Julius Cooley) and Ann, and there he lived until his death. The house is located near the South Licking River and off the old Lair Pike. Both daughters are now living in Tampa, Fla.

John W. moved to a farm on the Leesburg Pike near Broadwell. There he built the house now occupied by W. L. Renaker, married and reared his children, Stewart, Thomas D. II. Mrs. Bob Shropshire and Mrs. Robert Walter Switzer, Mrs. Shropshire being the only one now living. The descendants of Tom Urmston I now living in the county are Harcourt and John Walter Switzer and their heirs, Harold Shropshire and Earl Urmston (Stewart's son) of Maysville who is a tobacco buyer and lives here only during the tobacco season.


Mrs. Mary (better known as Mollie) Holliday who purchased the old place about 1884 from the Urmston heirs, was the widowed daughter of Henry Shawhan, The National Bank's first president. Soon after, the house was occupied by her daughter, who was married to Dr. Higgins Smith. The Smiths came there with their sixweek-old baby, Agnes. Dr. Smith was a tall young man from the house across the road a few miles away. (That house is also still standing and owned by the family.) Dr. Smith was a graduate of the medical school at Bellevue Hospital, New York City, in the class of 1869. In this old house they reared their only child, Agnes.

Mrs. Mollie Holliday's son, Hubbard, married Mary Belle Patterson from just over the hill to the north and they lived in the house now occupied by W. E. Clifford, just over the hill to the south. Soon, however, Mary Belle Holliday died and Hubbard came to the old house to live.


Then Mrs. Mollie Holliday brought her two orphaned nieces and nephew here to stay. They were Marguerite, Robert and Minnie Lyne.
The Smiths added a bedroom and bath over the dining room and an upper and lower room back of the left parlor, also the present large porch.
As the years passed, some of the county's best stories were no doubt told in the shade of the old oak tree in front of the house, for under its branches on hot summer afternoons gathered some of the best story tellers of the generation. They were Dr. Smith; his brotherin-law, Hub Holliday; and his wife's cousin, Robert Lyne; all three living at the house. Hig Patterson from over the hill; and often one of Dr. Smith's tall brothers home on vacation. They were Mark Smith, a representative in Congress from Tombstone, Ariz.; Samuel, the Wall Street broker; James J. who lived in Missouri and Francis (Prez). Then Judge Jim Dedman, Tom Collier and Sebastian McDowell would often come out from town.
"Bas" McDowell, a son of Dr. Hervey McDowell, was just back from San Domingo, where he'd engaged in the sugar business. Dr. Smith's daughter, Agnes. just graduated from Vassar College, returned home and was married to Bas McDowell in 1916.
The McDowells lived in town for a while, but they had come to the old place to live when their two daughters, Elizabeth and Agnes were born. Mr. McDowell died in 1926 and Mrs. Smith (Miss Lizzie) in 1945. Mrs. McDowell has kept the home and for the past 15 years has been assisted by Elizabeth who has managed the farms.
The portrait over the old Smith sideboard shown in the picture is of Agnes Chinn Smith, Mrs. McDowell's grandmother. The spinning wheel in the other picture was not for ornament in the days of the lady in the portrait. She spun cloth for the clothing of her seven sons as well as for the slaves, with perhaps some help.

Members of the family have been avid readers for generations, as the hundreds of books on the shelves throughout the house bear witness. The tall cherry desk in the south living room was brought from Virginia by the Smiths just after the Revolutionary War.


The old house was first painted its soft yellow color 40 years ago, and with each repainting the same

color has been carefully retained.137


Mary “Mollie” married Joseph HOLLIDAY.
They had the following children:

358 i. Elizabeth (-1945)

ii. Hubbard.

Hubbard married Mary Belle PATTERSON.
