This record causes us to reflect that Thomas Avent must have imported himself from Great Britain and paid his own passage, as otherwise he would not have been entitled to 50 acres of land. Since John Nicholls listed him as one of his headrights in the 1714 patent, Thomas Avent must have made another trip back to England after 1701 and before 1714, and it seems very possible that he may have been an agent of factor for John Nichols since he was living on his plantation.

"In the matter of Solomon M. Thomas . . . age 42, 6 Jan 1887 . . . applicant for pension No. 467173,. . . [He] made and filed a Declaration fo Invalid Pension on or about 14 Dec 1882. He now makes this affidavit supplemental to the Declaration now on file in the Pension Department.

As to his first enlistment, he cannot give exact dates, but in the month of May or June 1862, he enlisted Co. B, 55th Regiment, Indiana Volunteers, three-month men, and was mustered out at Indianapolis, IN in September 1862.

He again enlisted in Co. I, 1st Indiana Regiment, Heavy Artillery, 12 Mar 1864; discharged 10 Jan 1866.

That while a member of Co. B, 55th Regt Indiana Volunteers, at or near Richmond KY on or about 30 Aug 1862 and in the line of duty. It was late in the evening and what was known as the graveyard on the last stand made by the Federal forces on 30 Aug 1862, the Confederate Cavalry made a charge and stampeded our lines and in said stampede, I was struck in the back with a sabre and left upon the field. The calvary continued in pursuit of the retreating forces and I managed to escape off the field and crossed the Kentucky River; and three days afterward I came to Lexington, KY.

I was all alone in my travel from the Richmond battlefield to Lexington; from Lexington to Cincinnati OH and then direct to Indianapolis, IN and stayed a day and a night at the Soldiers' Home in Indianapolis, and then came home. We stayed home some eight or ten days and went back to Indianapolis and was mustered out of the service, though we did not get regular discharges. While at home some eight or ten days, just previous to being mustered out of the 55th Regiment Indiana Volunteers, I was treated by Dr. John Gilfelder, who then resided in Center Point, IN, who died in the year 1877 . . . . I had no medical treatment while in the service of said regiment and have no hospital record. . . . [signed] Jonathan M. Thomas"

After said target firing, we then shelled a cyprus woods about a mile in our front. During said time, the crack of the gun produced a deafness and the claimant cut from his coat the cotton and packed into his ears to protect them from the crack of the gun.

Subject: More research on the Seclks and questions
David,
I appreciate your brief answer to my initial inquiry. Since then I have
been back to the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake and used their
Internet Connection to the www.ancestry.com web page. I was thankful to
see that you have recently posted additonal information on Beulah May
Selck, Viola Birdie Selck and Theodocia Birdie Davis. I am going to
quote from my personal journal indicating the information I was able to
download off of your Ancestry World Tree Project site as will as the
further research I have done on this family. You will notice that I
still have some questions. Please send whatever you or your relatives
have. The quoted material and questions follow:
"At the Family History Library I used the Internet on www.ancestor.com
in order to search for material on the deaths of Beulah May Selck and Viola Birdie Selck. The main thing I found was from the Ancestry World Tree Project on which David R. Walker had placed information on both of them, as well as upon Theodocia Birdie Davis Selck and Henry Ernest
Selck. I found that Viola Birdie Selck who was born on 5 Oct 1905 in Lewisville, Jefferson, Idaho (which fact I already knew from the Lewisville Ward Membership Records) had died on 22 Jan 2000 with no
mention of where she was buried; that she had married Arthur Hall ( b. 5 Oct 1902 in Bantam, Litchfield, Connecticut) on 1 Sep 1935 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California and that they had no children. I found that Arthur Hall died 12 May 1980 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California
and was buried in Forest Lawn, Los Angeles, California. Beulah May Selck, according to this source, was “born 5 Jun 1908 in Fort Hall, Bingham, Idaho and died Nov 1981 as an unmarried woman, being buried in Forest Lawn, Los Angeles, California.” The Social Security Death Index indicated that her “last residence had been in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California; that she had been issued her Social Security Card in California “before 1951" and that her card number was 564-14-1519.” I
then checked on this Walker source for the information on the mother of these two girls, i.e., of Theodocia Birdie Davis, which confirmed the fact that she had been born 17 Jun 1884 in Battle Mountain, Lander, Nevada and then died on 14 Mar 1981 in Hollywood, Los Angeles,
California, with a burial in Forest Lawn, Los Angeles, California. It gave the name of the parents of Theodocia Birdie Davis as being Elijah Walter Oxenbold Davis (b. 26 May 1841 in Aston, Warwickshire,England) and Theodocia Fanny Walker (b. 8 May 1851 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake,
Utah). It showed the marriage date to Henry Ernest Selck (b. 3 Dec 1881 in Kamas, Summit, Utah) as being 8 Oct 1902 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah, which information I already had from the Salt Lake Temple Ordinance files. Finally, it indicated that they were divorced; that “Theodocia
had also divorced her second husband George E. Sandholtz and took back the name of Selck,” which fact I had earlier deduced as a result of my own research into the 1920 and 1930 U.S. Censuses. I then checked the Social Security Death Index on Theodocia Birdie Selck and discovered that
her Social Security number was issued in “California in 1963 and that it was 551-70-8388.” Then, I checked out the birth information on Beulah May Selck being born at Fort Hall, Bingham, Idaho. I went to the Bingham County Courthouse Clerk of Records, Vol 1 and 2, Register of Births,
Items 3-4 for the years 1907-1911 found in US/CAN Film 1420881. Her information did not appear there! In fact, there were no “Fort Hall” entries that appeared in this record. There were also no “Selck” entries that appeared there. I checked both the Index as well as the body of the entries. It then occurred to me that Fort Hall was really an Indian Reservation. When I brought this fact up to one of the Librarians at the Family History Library she really was not much help except to suggest
getting in touch with the Idaho Vital Records people and seeing what they had. I even went to search the U.S. Soundex for the Federal and Idaho Census of 1910 under the Selck surnames and found no Selcks listed, which was rather surprising to me because I knew that both William Waldemar
Selck and his son William Walter Selck had families in Idaho at Lewisville in 1910. The film containing the Soundex was number 1374235. I still need to check out the 1910 U.S. Census itself. So, after doing
this work, I still had a couple of questions: 1. Where did the death date of 22 Jan 2000 come from for Viola Birdie Selck (who had married Arthur Hall) and where was she buried? Also, how did the Walkers know when she died? 2. Where did the birth information for Beulah May Selck come from? Does someone have an actual Idaho birth certificate for her? 3. Why did not the Walker Family Organization list something about the only child of Henry Ernest Selck and Theodocia Birdie Davis that they had
not mentioned, i.e., their son Walter Ernest Selck (b. 24 Jul 1903 in Lewisville, Fremont, Idaho; d. 31 Oct 1993 in Tucson, Pima, Arizona) or of any family or children that he might have? 4. What is the
relationship of the Walkers to the Selcks? 5. Are there still some Selck descendants of the family of Henry Ernest Selck and Theodocia Birdie Davis living in California? If so, who are they? 6. Does anyone have a picture of this original family? 6. Who did Walter Ernest Selck marry?"
Well, that is quite enough. Write as soon as you can.

After landing in Philadelphia in August 1824, the family of ten traveled some 300 miles west on an "Old Wagon Road," (aka: the National Road, then still under construction), towards Ohio.

In September 1824, Catherine Guthrie Moore, Thomas Moore's wife and mother of eight children, died in Washington County, PA.

(I have not found any information about this particular Moore family on the genealogical web sites for Washington County, PA.)

The family of nine continued on to Zanesville, Muskingum County, OH, an important town on the National Road, and lived in the Zanesville area for 5-6 years. In 1831 Thomas Moore moved to Marion County, IN, also on the National Road, where he bought 160 acres, and added more land later.



The following information was edited by Roy Richard Thomas (December 2007) from:

http://www.nps.gov/archive/fone/natlroad.htm

"The National Road, today called U.S. Route 40, was the first highway built entirely with federal funds. The road was authorized by Congress in 1806 during the Jefferson Administration. Construction began in Cumberland, Maryland in 1811. The route closely paralleled the military road opened by George Washington and General Braddock in 1754-55.

By 1818 the road had been completed to the Ohio River at Wheeling, which was then in Virginia. Eventually the road was pushed through central Ohio and Indiana reaching Vandalia, Illinois in the 1830's where construction ceased due to a lack of funds. The National Road opened the Ohio River Valley and the Midwest for settlement and commerce.

The opening of the road saw thousands of travelers heading west over the Allegheny Mountains to settle the rich land of the Ohio River Valley. Small towns along the National Road's path began to grow and prosper with the increase in population. Towns such as Cumberland, Uniontown, Brownsville, Washington and Wheeling evolved into commercial centers of business and industry. Uniontown was the headquarters for three major stagecoach lines which carried passengers over the National Road. Brownsville, on the Monongahela River, was a center for steamboat building and river freight hauling. Many small towns and villages along the road contained taverns, blacksmith shops, and livery stables.

Taverns were probably the most important and numerous business found on the National Road. It is estimated there was about one tavern every mile on the National Road. There were two different classes of taverns on the road. The stagecoach tavern was one type. It was the more expensive accommodation, designed for the affluent traveler. Mount Washington Tavern was a stagecoach tavern. The other class of tavern was the wagon stand, which would have been more affordable for most travelers. A wagon stand would have been similar to a modern "truck stop." All taverns regardless of class offered three basic things; food, drink, and lodging.

During the heyday of the National Road, traffic was heavy throughout the day and into the early evening. Almost every kind of vehicle could be seen on the road. The two most common vehicles were the stagecoach and the Conestoga wagon. Stagecoach travel was designed with speed in mind. Stages would average 60 to 70 miles in one day.

The Conestoga wagon was the "tractor-trailer" of the 19th Century. Conestogas were designed to carry heavy freight both east and west over the Allegheny Mountains. These wagons were brightly painted with red running gears, Prussian blue bodies and white canvas coverings. A Conestoga wagon, pulled by a team of six draft horses, averaged 15 miles a day."

"William McFarland. The gentleman whose name heads this sketch is a grandson of Robert McFarland, who was a native Tennesseean and an early settler of Kentucky, where he spent the rest of his life. He and his wife reared a family of eight children, five of whom were sons and all were soldiers in the War of Revolution, four of them being in active service and the other the captain of a company of home guard. Robert McFarland died at an advanced age. His son. Benjamin McFarland, was born in Tennessee in 1770 and was afterward married in Kentucky to Martha Stinson, by whom he had one daughter, Martha, who married William Henderson and became a resident of Indiana, dying there. She left eight children, two of whom survive: Harriet, who married Samuel Consley and James. After the death of his first wife Benjamin McFarland married Mary Ratcliffe, and to them seven children were born, of whom Robert died in infancy and six grew lo maturity; Jane (deceased), who became the wife of John McCollum; Thomas (deceased), who married Betsey Wycoff; Isabel (deceased), who married George Barnes; Samuel (deceased), who married Matilda Bryan; Eliza, widow of Thomas N. Thomas; William (the subject of this sketch). The father of these children was a soldier in the French and Indian Wars prior to the War of 1812-14, being a noted spy and soout in the service of his country. William McFarland, whose name heads this sketch, was born in Campbell County, Ky., April 12, 1814, on the farm belonging to his father, Benjamin McFarland. On this farm he was brought up to the'age of twelve years, living the usual life of the farmer's boy of that period. He was placed in school at the age of six years and attended every session of school during the three-months winter terms until he was twelve years old. He arrived with his parents in Indiana, October 17, 1826, his father and two of his brothers having come in the previous spring. They entered about eighty acres of land, cleared about seven acres and planted it in corn, then returned to Kentucky, sold their possessions there and returned to Indiana in the fall. Besides the above mentioned eighty acres, the father also entered eighty acres in Perry Township, and on this last tract they settled when they came in the fall. The first thing they did was to put up a cabin, 18x20 feet, the floor of which was made of ash logs, split as fine as possible, and dressed with the axe. The door was made of oak clapboards with the roof also of that material, greased paper took the place of window lights and the chimney was what was called "cat and clay.'' William remained on this farm until about 1854. He was married in 1839 by Rev. John Richmond, a Baptist minister and physician residing in Indianapolis, to Martha Ann, daughter of John Chinn, and for some time thereafter lived in a three-room frame house which had been put up on his father's farm. In 1854 he purchased ninety-four acres of land for $24 per acre, on which had been erected a good hewed log house and there he made his home for three years. Not being pleased with the neighborhood he sold his property there and bought 140 acres in Perry Township, paying $50 an acre, which was $5 more per acre than was usual. He paid $2,000 and had nine years to pay the balance. In 1871 he erected the handsome two-story frame house in which he now resides, bat at the present writing has a beautiful home almost completed in Indianapolis where he expects to spend his declining years. He was first a Whig in politics but for many years has been a Republican and has voted for every Republican candidate for president since the time of Fremont. He has been a member of the Baptist Church since 1839, in which he served as deacon since 1861. A family of eleven children were born to them, as follows: Carey A., who married Margaret Graber (deceased), has five children? Edna, Guy, Aggie, Elizabeth, and Fay; Mary E., who married Rev. Edward S. Riley, a Baptist minister, by whom she has one daughter?Margaret; Appoline A.; John L., who married Ella Stargel and has two children?Edith M. and Charles; Artemesia; Benjamin F. who is married to Selina Ewan; William H. who married Belle Smock and has five children ?Roxanna, Laurence, Nancy G., Parviu, Martha C., Louella A.; Melissa Isabella, who married Charles Collins, has four children?Clarence, Frederick, Mary and Leo; Margaret M. and Lily P. Carey A., the eldest son, served three years in the Federal army in the Seventieth Indiana Regiment, of which ex-President Harrison was Colonel."

"Ephraim Diehl, who was born in [1822 in Columbiana, Ohio], was reared in Ohio and Indiana, and at an early age learned the trade of broom maker, an occupation which he subsequently varied with activities as a farmer. His death occurred in Randolph County, Indiana, May 22, 1861, at the age of forty-four. Although then only in the prime of life, he had prospered and provided well for his family. He was a church worker and in politics a Democrat. In Randolph county occurred his marriage to Miss Margaret Baugh. She was born in that county in 1820 and died at her home near Union City in June, 1862, being about the same age as her husband. She was a member of the Christian or New Light church. Margaret Baugh was a daughter of John and Mary (Morris) Baugh. The former was a native of North Carolina and the latter of Greene County, Tennessee, both born about 1800 and married in Tennessee."
