Joseph Lewallen, born 1825 Maury Co., TN, d. OK., son of Aaron

Billie Harris - Jun 12, 2011

Linda Haas Davenport has a website with information on Joseph G Lewallen, born 1825, Tennessee.

Check her site which is in a better reading font and set-up than we have here.   You'll also note near the bottom of this page a site for the tombstone of Joseph.   Linda's web site shows him born Dec 24 1825 when actually, the month was July 24, 1825,   per the tombstone.

Joseph G LEWALLEN was born (1) 24 Dec 1825 in TN and died 16 Dec 1899 in OK (Burial in Indianola Cemetery, McIntosh Co, OK). He married Elizabeth (Lizzie) P DUE (2) 3 Dec 1849 in Maury County, TN. She was the daughter of John Wesley DUE and Nancy Ann SPENCE. She was born 6 Jul 1832 in TN. She died in 1925 probably in Candian, Pittsburg Co, OK.

Notes on Joseph G LEWALLEN:
   According to the census records Joseph's occupation thoroughout this life was farming. Joseph & Elizabeth were married 3 Dec 1849 in Maury Co TN. By Sep 1850 Joseph & Elizabeth (and Elizabeth's parents, Wesley & Nancy Due) were living in (3) Tippah Co, MS. Next door to Joseph & Elizabeth, in the William McNice household, were four Lewellyn children ranging from age 17 to 5 (more on them later).
   By 1853, when their first child, Charles, was born, Joseph & Elizabeth were back in TN. (On the 1910 Federal Census Elizabeth is reported to have given birth to 9 children of which 5 were still living. All 9 children are accounted for so it would appear they were married two + years before the birth of their first child.)
   By 1858, when their 3rd child was born, they were in AR. The first record found in AR is for the cash purchase of 200 acres of land in Independence Co. (Bureau of Land Management patent #12248)
   The family is found on the 1860 Census (4) in Ashley Township, Independence Co AR and the value of Joseph's personal propery was listed as 1,800.00. Although he's not found on the single page of the Independence Co 1860 Slave Census that kind of value in 1860 was almost always the value of owned slaves. On the same census Nancy Due (Elizabeth's mother) is heading up a household.
   There is a Civil War record for a Joseph G Lewallen living in AR. In 1862 Joseph would have been 37 years old and that's a bit old to have joined. However, I can't find another Joseph G Lewallen in AR around 1860 so I'll list the information here.
   The Civil War Records show: A Joseph G Lewallen enlised 1 Nov 1862 at Evening Shade, AR (5) and was assigned to Company D 8th Arkansas Cavalry as a private. His Civil War records report his name as both Lewallan & LEVALIN (Roll M376-14 US Civil War Soldiers). His specific job, at least in the beginning, was as a butcher. He was captured at Mound City, KS 24 Oct 1863 and sent to MP St Louis, MO 15 Nov 1864 then to Rock Island, IL 9 Dec 1864. His date of discharge is unknown at this time
   Between the 1860 & (6) 1870 Federal Census Joseph moved his family to Flippen, Marion County, AR. According the census records both Joseph & Elizabeth could read and write so it isn't surprising that they educated their children. The 1870 census reported Charles, Ellen and Henry attended school within the year.
   The (7) 1880 census reported the family living in White River Township (Flippin). Henry, Wesley, Emma and William were all attending school
   During the mid 1880s Marion County experienced a mining boom and many of Marion county's citizens staked claimes. Joseph was one of those. The Mt Echo Newspaper (May 14, 1886 issue) reported: "I was shown some very fine specimens of copper ore by Mr. Jo Lewallen, one of White River's best citizens, recently." Perhaps the ore came from a claim Joseph owned?
   The first mention I find of Jospeh filing a mining clain is found in Mining book K (I couldn't find any earlier books at the time) where on 21 January 1889 (8) he filed a claim he named "Evening Star". On the same day Joseph acted as a agent for Wesley P LEWALLEN for a claim called "Turning Point" located next to Joseph's Evening Star claim. On 25 Jan 1889 (9) Joseph filed another claim he called "Spanish Ridge". On 21 February 1889, Joseph witnessed a mining claim filed by Henry C Lewallen (10) called "Golena Bank" If these claims ever amounted to anything I haven't yet been able to find the record
   Joseph and his family often made the News and appeared in the local gossip columns of Marion county's Mt. Echo Newspaper.
   April 11, 1890 issue: "J. G. Lewallen, one of the staunch citizens of Flippin, dropped in to our office last Saturday, and made himself solid with The Echo for another year. He says there is some interest in mining matters out in his neighborhood."
   Oct 17, 1890 issue: "J. G. Lewallen, of Flippin, will move to town in a few days and will occupy the Carter property. We will be glad to have "Uncle" John (assuming a typo) with us."
   Nov 7, 1890 issue: "Mrs. Olive Carter moved out to her farm just west of town this week. "Uncle Jo" Lewallen, of Flippin, is moving into her town property."
   Mar 6, 1891 issue: "Uncle" Joe Lewallen has moved back to his farm in the Flippin Barrens.
   Before 1899 Joseph & Elizabeth were with their son Wesley in Indian Territory (OK). Joseph died 16 Dec 1899 in Indian Territory and is buried at the Indianola Cemetery in McIntosh Co. Elizabeth continued to live with Wesley until she died in 1925. At the moment her place of death and burial is unknown.
   In searching the web for more information on Joseph I found several Lewallen family trees on that list Joseph G Lewallen as the son of a Daniel Lewallen (b) 1790 in Anderson Co, TN (d) Jackson Co, AL and Elizabeth LAYNE (b) 1794, Marion Co TN (d) Tishomingo Co, MS. These trees lack sources, appear to be copied from one another and contain enough errors to be suspect.
   Other family trees on ancestry have the same David Lewallen married to Sarah (Sally) Young but have no sources to back up their claim.
   Another researcher, a professional genealogist, believes that Joseph's parents were Aaron Lewallen (b) ca 1797 in NC (d) either 1846 or 1873 and Sarah (Sally) Young (b) 1804 in NC, (d) after Mar 1885. According to the marriage records of Williamson Co, TN Aaron Lewallen married Sarah Young 13 Jan 1819. This researcher shows Joseph's siblings as: Elizabeth (b) ca 1833 in TN; Adeline (b) ca 1835 in TN; James (b) ca 1840 in TN; Sarah (b) ca 1844 in TN (married a Coats) and Thomas Marion (b) ca 1845 in TN. Four of these same children (Elizabeth 17, Adeline 15, James 10 & Thomas 5) were on the 1850 Federal Census in Tippah Co, MS living next door to Joseph & Elizabeth in the William McNice household. It appears that Sarah (Sally) Lewallen wasn't married to William McNice because she's listed as Sarah Lewallen on subsequent censuses.
Generation No. 1


I. Charles G. LEWALLEN was born in 1853 in TN. He died (11 & 20) 20 May 1886 in Flippen Marion Co AR. His place of burial is unknown. He married Emily Angeline ALLEN 25 Dec 1876 in Marion Co, AR. She was the daughter of John ALLEN and Sarah Elizabeth VANCE. She died (12) 25 May 1924 at the home of her daughter in Bronson, Bourbon Co KS and was returned to Henniretta OK for burial.

Notes for Charles LEWALLEN:
   Charlie's children often told me that their father was a school teacher who supplemented his income by farming. His being a school teacher is substantiated by the (13) 1880 Federal Census which reports the family living in Yellville with Charlie teaching school. He himself attended school in Mountain Home at the Mountain Home Academy (14) where he received his teaching certificate. In about 1885 Charlie filed a homestead claim located in Flippin and during the winter of 1885 Charlie moved his family to their new home in Flippin. However, Charlie didn't have much time to enjoy his new home. The Mt Echo (11) May 11, 1886 issue reported that Charlie had been confined to his room for six month with lung fever (tuberculosis) and the Jun 11, 1886 issue reported his death. He died at the young age of 33 leaving a wife and five children.
   My grandmother (Virgie Charlie Lewallen, the youngest child) always belived that her father had died before she was born and that Charlie wanted the child (boy or girl) to be named after him since none of the other children were. Unfortunately my grandmother died before I found the notice of Charlie's death in the Mt. Echo, a notice that proved Virgie was over two months old when her father died. I believe Virgie would have been pleased to know her father had a hand in giving her his name.
   I've never found any information on where Charlie was buried. Since he lived and died in Flippin I'm guessing he was buried there.

Notes for Emily ALLEN LEWALLEN:
   As far as I know there is no existing document or source that proves Charlie and Emily's marriage date. However, their children all agreed that their parents were married on Christmas Day 1876 at her home. At the time of their marriage Charlie was 23 and Emily was 15.
   A short ten years later, at the age of 25, Emily found herself a widow and the mother of five fatherless children, ranging from two months to nine years of age.
   I haven't yet received Charlie's Homestead File, but according to the Bureau of Land Management a patent to the property was issued, in Charlie's name, 23 Feb 1888 - two years after his death. Apparently Emily fulfilled the remaining requirements by herself. On the 1891 Marion Co Property Tax List Emily is shown as the owner of 40 acres of Charlie's original 120 acres and her father-in-law Joseph G Lewallen as the owner of the other 80 acres.
   A year after Charlie's death, over in Jimmys Creek township, Eli Henry McCracken's wife Belle passed away leaving Henry a 33 year old widower and the father of five motherless children ranging from a few months old to 8 years. There are no family stories about how Emily and Henry met, but Marion County's population wasn't very large in 1887. In any event the widow and the widower did meet and on (15) 15 Nov 1888 they married at Emily's home in Flippin. Emily was often heard to say it was like she suddenly had five sets of twins. Her children ranged in age from 2 to 11 years and Henry's ranged in age from 2 to 10 years.
   According to Emily's oldest boys the family Henry and his five children moved into Emily's house in Flippin. It is said in the family that Henry taught school and farmed, but supporting a family of 12 wasn't easy and it was even harder after the couple had another four children.
   Between July 1897 and the end of 1899 the family packed up and moved to Indian Territory. (16) My grandmother Virgie told many stories about that two month wagon trip. I have no doubt her thirteen year old perspective was much different than Emily's!
   After arriving in Indian Territory Emily gave birth to three more children making her the mother of thirteen children (although two of those children died as infants) and the step-mother of five.
   Times in Indian Territory were hard and my grandmother and her siblings' strongest memories were of never having enough to eat. No one went without food, but enough food to satisfy everyone was a different story.
   By 1924 Emily had been ill for quite some time (according to her letters to her Virgie). In Mar of 1924 Emily traveled to the home of her daughter Lucy in Bronson Kansas and passed away on (12) Mar 26th. Her body was shipped back to Oklahoma and she was buried in Henniretta, Oklahoma.

II. Ellen LEWALLEN was born on 3 Apr 1854 in TN. She died on 27 Nov 1945. She married Joshua Starr JENKINS in probably Marion Co AR

Notes for Ellen LEWALLEN:
   Starr Jenkins is listed in the landowner maps (here on the Marion Co site) as owner of land in Sec 7 TS19N R15W. By 1891 Ellen is listed as the owner of this property. Apparently Starr had died by 1891.

III. Theodocia "Docia" LEWALLEN was born in 1858 in AR. She married Biles Thompson. According to family lore the couple moved to Indian Territory.

IV: Henry C. LEWALLEN was born ca 1860 in Independence Co, AR and died 2 Aug 1889 (20) in Marion Co.

Notes for Henry C. LEWALLEN:
   Mt. Echo Newspaper, 23 Aug 1889 Issue: FLIPPIN ITEMS: "Mr. Henry Lewallen, one of Marion's best citizens, departed this life August 2nd, aged 29 years. He bore his two years suffering without a murmur, and left evidence of a bright hope beyond. To his many friends and relatives we tender our sincerest sympathy. W. H. White"

V: Wesley P "Doc" LEWALLEN was born 17 May 1862 (20) in AR. He died 18 Oct 1943 in Canadian, Pittsburg Co, OK. (17) He marrried 1st (18) Josephine (Jossie) FLIPPIN 26 Mar 1886; 2nd Ann DILL. Josephine (Josie) was born 29 Apr 1862, (20) daughter of Thomas H. P. Flippin and Mary M Summers. She died 21 Jul 1895 (20) and her death was reported in the Mt. Echo newspaper (I haven't yet located the article).

Notes for Wesley P LEWALLEN:
   Some online family trees give Wesley's middle name as Pershing.
   Wesley was often mentioned in the Mt. Echo Newspaper and was apparently active in county affairs. In Jul 1890 the Echo reported that Wesley was teaching school in Flippin. By Oct 1890 the Echo was reporting that Wesley was clerking in the store of H. A. Young and by Nov the Echo reported Wesley had moved into Yellville.
   In Jan 1889 Joseph Lewallen, Wesley's father, filed a mining claim for Wesley. The mine was located beside of one of Joseph's.
   Josie died in July of 1895 and perhaps because of Josie's death Wesley entered medical school. According to the Medical School Alumni Database [NOTE: broken link] Wesley attended the Kentucky School of Medicine, Louisville, KY from 1895-1901. (As a side note - Wesley's brother William B Lewallen attended school with him in 1895.) Where Wesley practiced medicine between his granduation in 1901 and 1903 when he was listed in the 1903-1904 Standard Medical Directory as a physician in Canadian (population 522) Choctaw Nation is unknown. From 1903 until his death in 1943 Wesley practiced medicine in Canadian, OK (19)
   The University of Oklahoma's Western History Manuscript collection has custody of Wesley's Patient Account Ledgers (1904-1932) and his Daybook (1926-1930).

VI. Emma Lee LEWALLEN was born Mar 1867 in AR. She died Jun 1926 in Muskogee, Muskogee Co OK. she married John William COWAN 17 Jan 1888 in Flippin, Marion Co AR. He was the son of Alfred COWAN and Louisa Elizabeth MEARS. He died Nov 1941 In St. Louis, MO.

VII. William B. LEWALLEN was born 12 May 1869 in AR and died 1 Nov 1911 in Bonham, Fannin County, Texas. He married Laura Bell WICKERSHAM Jul 1892. She was born 12 Aug 1873 in AR and died 24 Jun 1927 in Bonham, Fannin County, Texas

More on William B LEWALLEN:
   Mt. Echo Newspaper, Jul 29, 1892 Issue: "Will Lewallen and Miss Bell Wickersham surprised their many friends by quietly getting married last Thursday night. Rev. Thomas Wilson officiating. The Echo wishes the happy couple all the happiness possible." (same issue) Marriages: W. B. Lewallen, Union, 23 - Laura Bell Wickersham, Union, 25
   According to the Medical School Alumni Database [NOTE: broken link] William (along with his brother Wesley) attended the Kentucky School of Medicine, Louisville, KY in 1895. The website shows William attending only in 1895, but he must have attended medical school for longer than one year because by 1900 (and up to his death) William and Belle were living in Bonham City, Fannin County, Texas and William's occupation was listed as Physician. Both William & Laura are buried in Willow Wood Cemetery in Bonham, TX.

Even though Jospeh is not found on the 1860 Slave Census I'm guessing he did own slaves since by 1870 (after the Civil War) his personal property was valued at only 250.00.
