Mention of James Kelly Crockett

James Kelly Crockett (direct line), born 1832 Sep 21 in Boone County, Missouri, died Oct 12 1909 in Chautauqua County, Kansas, is briefly mentioned in the below court case.

A number of names below will be recognized by those famliar with Osage-French family histories. Joseph Revard Jr. and Franklin Revard were likely sons of Joseph Revard, also mentioned. John Nicholls was perhaps the father-in-law of Franklin Revard. The Pershall of Sipple & Pershall has likely to do with the Pershall family of Chautauqua Co. Ks to whom the Crocketts were related and by whom they had lied. The Chittendons were later associated with the Crocketts though marriage.

The Consolidated Barb-wire Company V. C. C. Purcell et al.

Attachment — Priority—Chattel Mortgage — Rights of Loan Agent: An agent who loans the money of others, taking promissory notes with personal security, and guarantees the payment of the notes, can take a chattel mortgage in his own name to secure the payment of Buch notes, or can maintain an action in his own name to enforce payment of the notes, or can enforce the conditions of a chattel mortgage taken in his own name to secure the payment of such notes; and such a chattel mortgage, on record before the levy of an attachment on the mortgaged property of the debtor, is a prior lien to the attachment levy.

Error from Chautauqua District Court.

Action by the Company against McGuire and another on a certain check. Attachment was issued. Purcell interpleaded, claiming an interest in the property attached. Verdict and judgment for the interpleader. The plaintiff comes to this court. The facts appear in the opinion.

An attachment was caused to be issued, and levied on horses, cows, a two-horse buggy, a stack of hay and other property of the McGuire Bros. This levy was made on the 10th day of January, the same day that the suit was commenced and the process issued. In due time, upon proper application, this property was sold by the sheriff, on the 13th day of February, 1889, for the sum of $257.15, and the money returned into court.

Barb-Wire Co. V. Purcell.

On the 26th day of March, 1889, the defendant in error, C. C. Purcell, filed an amended interplea, by leave of the court, in which it is alleged that at the time of the commencement of this action he had and still has a special ownership in the property taken by the sheriff under the attachment issued in this case; that his special ownership is described in an instrument in writing, filed in the office of the register of deeds in said county for record on the 17th day of December, 1888, a copy of which is attached to the interplea; that at the time of the commencement of said action he was and still is entitled to the immediate possession of said property.

The facts constituting his special ownership he states as follows: On the 15th day of December, 1888, and for a long time prior thereto, this interpleader had in his possession and under his control, for the purpose of loaning and collecting the same, several large sums of money, belonging to the following-named persons: John Smith, C. M. Adams, J. W. Elpis, and others. Said interpleader being then engaged. in business as loan and real-estate agent, it was understood and agreed by and between said parties and this interpleader that said sums of money should be loaned by said interpleader, and he should take notes therefor, the payment of which he should guarantee and be liable for the same, and that when said notes should become due he should collect the same and retain his commission thereon, and reloan or return the same, as the parties might desire; that on the day of the execution of said written instrument, to wit, on the 15th day of December, 1888, and prior thereto, said interpleader had loaned to said defendants, McGuire Bros., out of said moneys, the several sums of money stated in the notes described in said written instruments, and had taken and still has said notes in his possession, and was then and still is liable to the said payees named in said notes for said sums of money, and that on the said 15th day of December he demanded and received from said defendants the said written instrument to secure the payment of said notes, and the several sums of money so loaned, and also the additional sum of $200, loaned by said interpleader to said defendants on the 15th day of December, 1888, said last-named loan being a part of the consideration for which said written instrument was executed; that all of said sums of money were actually loaned the defendants, and said notes and security taken in good faith and upon good consideration; that at the time of making the last loan mentioned said property was held by the sheriff of said county under an attachment issued in favor of the Simmons Hardware Company, and said last loan was so made to enable said defendants to pay the claim of said hardware company, and said claim was so paid, and that the said property was then turned over and delivered to this interpleader, and remained in his possession until taken by the sheriff under the order of attachment issued in this case; that the property is worth $1,000, and has been sold by the sheriff, and the proceeds of the sale are now held by the sheriff. The interpleader prayed that he be declared and held to be the owner of the property, and entitled to its possession; that he recover possession, or, in lieu thereof, the value of $1,000 and costs of suit. Exhibit “A” is as follows:

Indorsed on back:
“state Of Kansas, Chautauqua County, Ss.

“This instrument was filed for record this 17th day of December, 1888, at 9 o’clock A. M., and duly recorded in book “C” of chattels, at page 50 cts.
C. W. DuBENDORFF, Register of Deeds.”

There was a trial at the June term, 1889, of the issue between the interpleader and the plaintiff in error, that resulted in a judgment for the interpleader and a decree giving him a prior right to the plaintiff in error. The plaintiff in error brings that issue here for review, and raises by a demurrer to the interplea, and objection to testimony offered at the trial, and by a demurrer to the evidence introduced to support it, several questions. One of these is, that Purcell had no title to the property described in the mortgage or otherwise stated in the interplea, and hence could not maintain his suit, or the instrument itself discloses that he is a naked trustee, or that the instrument is void, being in violation of the assignment laws of the state. Again, it is insisted that there was no change of possession under the instrument. All these objections are not tenable. The written instrument executed and delivered to Purcell on December 15, 1888, and filed for record on the 17th of the same month, is a chattel mortgage. Purcell, the interpleader, by reason of being the person who loaned the money, who guaranteed the payment of the notes, had such a beneficial interest in the notes, and was so personally responsible for them, that he could take the mortgage in his own name, and could have maintained an action in his own name against the makers of the notes. He had title for all the purposes of this interplea and of this action. Possession was not necessary, as his mortgage was on record prior to the attachment levy of the plaintiff in error. But if actual possession was necessary as against the plaintiff in error, there is some evidence to sustain any finding that might be included in the general judgment rendered.

We recommend an affirmance of the judgment.

By the Court: It is so ordered.

All the Justices concurring.




These are my notes from a conversation with Lloyd about 1981. — jk

Lloyd Clinton McKENNEY started school at about the age of 6 at the Crockett schoolhouse in Chautauqua County, Kansas which was located 1/4 mile from the main house. He says the kitchen at the farm house was the full width of the main house, a step or two down from it. One walked out of the kitchen into the cellar, the front of it was a concrete wall. It was a large room used as a refrigerator. Above it was the cellar house where the hired man lived. One could walk out of the second story of the main house and across the roof of the kitchen–it was used as a sleeping area during the summer time–and down the steps to the cellar house.

The family income came mostly from oil field teeming operations. James (Lloyd’s father) had teems working in oil fields–moved drilling rigs and took care of property. Run by horse power; father usually had two wagons. The farm was set up for two operations: grandfather Samuel Kelly CROCKETT had the North barn and buildings while James had the South barn, granaries and buildings.

This was how things were until Lloyd was 12. Then his parents moved in with his grandparents.

There were now three generations living in the house and this made it the meeting place. There was always company.

Heat came from a gas well on the farm, as well as light, gaslights.

The “old farmhouse” had burned with Lloyd was not a year old, a blaze in which James Kelly Crockett died. The new farmhouse was built.

The schoolhouse itself was only two rooms. It had a principal and one other teacher.

Grandfather George Washington McKENNEY Jr. gave Lloyd a horse when he was about five.

Lloyd started farming and driving a car when he was six. There was no age limit on driving then. The roads were hills and rock.

The milk cows were turned out onto the open range. The lead cow had a bell and that’s how one would find the cows if they didn’t come up. One had to go and find them with the help of that bell.

The farm had wheat, corn, oats. They didn’t sell the grain but fed it to the livestock. Little fields. 10 to 20 acres.

There was no high school nearby.

When Lloyd was 12 he was sent to Sedan, the county seat. The Crockett grandparents had moved there by this time. An uncle’s wife had died and left three children: the Crocketts took care of them. (This was probably George Keithly Crockett’s wife who died, Blanch Margaret Landis. She died 3 June 1921 and Lloyd would have been 12 that year.)

Lloyd left the farm for good when he was sixteen. In his senior year he went to Bonner Springs and lived with relatives–a sister of Vera, his mother.

After graduation from business college Lloyd was secretary to the master mechanic at Chanute, KS on the RR.


Lloyd had some photos which are not on the website. I (JMK) recorded descriptions of them back bout 1981 when I saw them. Following are the descriptions.

There is a photo from the early 1900s, a family portrait of George Washington McKENNEY Jr. and his wife and their children before the farmhouse, George etc. Lloyd says, “George did more work doing nothing.” Was lazy but good natured and the depression really hurt him. In the picture the sons all have plain, simple expressions. There are lace curtains hanging in the simple frame windows of the house. Note: Because I wrote sons, and George McKenney Jr. only had one son, I’m thinking instead this may have been a photo of the family of Samuel Kelly Crockett, father of Vera who married James Albert McKenney, George McKenney’s son. Samuel Kelly Crockett had five sons.

Lloyd’s Chautauqua High School picture from when he was 14, 1923-24. His second cousin George JACK is in the picture–tall, a basketball player. George is a handsome youth with strong features, wearing a white sweater. He played basketball in Pittsburgh. The depression hit this George hard as well; he couldn’t find work. He died when he was only 24 years old with a wasting disease Lloyd doesn’t recollect the name of. In front of this brick schoolhouse, in the sun, on the steps, is Lloyd dressed in a shirt and tie. He looks very young and a little soft compared to some of the other students. Beside him stands a fellow Lloyd identifies as Tuton Fuller, a trapper. Lloyd says Fuller lived a “tough life” in scrub oak or what is called “black jack timber”. The rest of the bunch is a mix of fellows in limp shirts, straggly longish hair, work-worn boots and youths dressed in sharp shirts, ties, bowties. The girls wear longish, shapeless dresses, waistlines about their hips, short squared-off hair. Pauline JACK, sister of George is in the photo. Lloyd says the school no longer exists.

There is a photo of G. W. MCKENNEY Jr. He and Belle in younger times. Addie MCWHIRT, looking a bit plain, wears granny type glasses and a sour expression. George is relaxed, in his prime–handlebar mustache, white shirt, pocket watch with a bullet hanging from the chain. Lloyd identifies him as being the one who made the Oklahoma land run. He had gone out prior to the run and chosen the land he wanted. By the time he got out there were squatters (“sooners”) already on the land–people who had cheated by coming in the back way. As he was not able to prove that they had not participated in the run he lost the case. The bullet probably dangles from his chain because he was a sheriff in Chautauqua (Note: sheriff’s deputy). Lloyd says he was five feet six inches tall.

There is a picture of the old Crockett farmhouse. George W. MCKENNEY JR. and Belle stand beside it, rather stiff and staunch. The yard is brush. The men wear overalls. The women wear sun hats made of straw. The farmhouse looks plain, laid bare to the sun. Baked.

The picture of the Crockett schoolhouse shows it stands on bare earth. Lloyd is very young in this picture, eight or nine years of age. The little girls wear dark stockings, low sash dresses with skirts cut just below their knees, high-top boots. The boys are dressed in overalls or trousers and newspaper boy caps. Three girls to one side hold hands. There are older girls who appear to almost be women. A tall, smiling figure of a boy wears a man’s hat and overalls–Lloyd says this fellow never made it past the third grade, but he looks to be about the most proud of the bunch here.

Dorothy and Lloyd’s wedding picture. He’s a handsome, slender youth with deep-set eyes. Dorothy looks essentially the same as when older–dressed very prettily with the jewels about her neck, the fashionably crimped hair, the black strap dress with its sheer black cover-up. A very handsome picture of the both of them. This photo is in the photo portion of the website.

A picture of James Albert McKENNEY. He always looks stern and stiff in his photos.

Another photo of the CROCKETT schoolhouse, but this is from when Vera CROCKETT was a girl. The women wear their hair pulled to the top of their heads, high-neck white blouses and high laced boots.

A photo of James Albert MCKENNEY, Samuel Kelly CROCKETT with other men and their teams of horses.

Baby pictures of George JACK, very full of life. Baby pictures of Lloyd.

There is an old photo of Lloyd as a radio announcer.

An old photo of Lela and Thelma together.

John Wesley Pershall and Jennie Kirkpatrick

Lucretia Jane “Jennie” Kirkpatrick, who married John Wesley Pershall, was a daughter of William Robert Kirkpatrick and Zilpha “Jane” Strickland, sister of our Millie Ann Stricklin who married James Kelly Crockett (direct line of this blog). All these families settled in Chautauqua County, Kansas.


From a “Chautauqua Co. History”

John Wesley PERSHALL was born in Knox County, Iowa, November 2, 1852. His parents were Samuel H. PERSHALL, born June 10, 1826, and Millicent BRASHEARS, born September 1, 1826.

Other children were Taylor, Florence, Ollie and Ellie. Taylor’s wife was Louise and their children were Avery, Sam, Dell and Nettie. Florence married Joe MCKENZIE and their children were Otis, Avery, Ray, Lloyd and Opal. Ollie married Emanuel JENKINS. They had one child, Ora. Then Ollie married Levi BARRETT. They had no children.

John PERSHALL married Lucretia Jane “Jennie” KIRKPATRICK on May 18, 1873. Their family was William Arthur, born August 29, 1874; Ada Glenn born January 13, 1876; Edward Lee born August 29, 1877; Everett Earl born September 27, 1887; Fred Wesley born January 2, 1891; and Verna Louella born November 1, 1897. William Arthur and Edward Lee died in 1897 of typhoid fever.

Everett married Elizabeth HAMRICK; their children are William Arthur, Edward W., Martha Jane, Avis, Buri and Laree. Fred married Leila Gertrude GOULD and their children are Logan “Babe”, Ray, Beulah, and Gladys. Ada married Logan ALEXANDER and they had two sons, Guy and Fred. Verna married Claude STABLER and their children are Ellis Gordon, Inez Louise, and Oleta May.

John and Jennie lived south of Peru in the Oakland and Jonesburg area. He farmed and at one time was associated with a man by the name of GARLINGHOUSE in the monument business. He also worked with his brother Taylor in the grocery store in Jonesburg, and a man by the name of Vince who had the grocery there at one time.

John and his family moved to Blackburn, Oklahoma and then back to Kansas.

The Jonesburg Church, which still stands, was built in 1882 and many of the family member’s memorial services were held there, and most are buried at nearby Elcado and Chautauqua Cemeteries. Dr. CRANDALL of Peru was one of the early day doctors who went by horse and buggy to see his patients.

A Mr. CARPENTER drove a covered wagon and toured the area selling Raleigh Products, also thread. He would spend the night with some of the farm families and go on the next day.

Early day box suppers and school programs were about the only entertainment. They enjoyed family dinners. Fourth of July and Christmas were always special.

Lucretia Jane “Jennie” KIRKPATRICK was born November 4, 1858. Her parents were William Robert KIRKPATRICK, born in Boone County, Missouri, February 28, 1832, and Zilpha Jane STRICKLIN, born December 14, 1833. They were married March 18, 1852. Their children were Eliza, John William and Lucretia Jane.

(Bottom line of column is missing in my copy, then continues on the next page)…had one daughter Glenn, who married Henry BRAMBLETT. Mr. PULLIAM enlisted in the Civil War and was killed in battle on Wilson Creek near Springfield, Missouri, on August 10, 1861.

Lucretia Jane was reared by her Aunt Millie Ann STRICKLIN, who married James K. CROCKETT. Parents of Wm. Robert KIRKPATRICK were David Fletcher KIRKPATRICK and Rachel Shelby WRIGHT who were married September 10, 1820. Other children were Mary born on October 9, 1834; Martha born January 7, 1837; and Rachel Ann, born August 16, 1840. Zilpha Jane STRICKLIN’s parents were Thomas STRICKLIN and Eliza SHOCK. They were married June 8, 1826. Their other children were Josepher (sic), John H., Mary M., Milly Ann, William L., James P., Thomas and Michael Kelly.

My grandfather sent this to me in 1978, which concerns the family farm in Chautauqua county, Kansas that was shared by the McKenneys and Samuel Kelly Crockett and his wife, Sadie Hackney Crockett. The Crockett school is mentioned and my grandfather showed me an old photo of it once, from when he was a boy, and I would imagine my cousins in Kansas have that photo somewhere.

Does the limestone rock survive into which was chiseled 1871, the date the land was purchased by the James Kelly Crockett?


Recollections of Lloyd McKENNEY
13 December 1978

My first and very faint recollection is of a farm home on the limestone prairie on east side of the road about three miles north of Chautauqua, Kansas, and about four miles south of Sedan, Kansas in Chautauqua County, Kansas. My date of birth is 1/29/19. When I was about 4 years of age, we moved to the CROCKETT farm, to make our home with my mother’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. S. K. CROCKETT. The farm was purchased by my great grand-parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. K. CROCKETT in 1871. The date is chiseled in the face of one of the large limestone rocks that are the rimrocks of the hill behind the house location. Their farm where they lived prior to the move was near Nevada, Missouri. They had owned slaves, who were freed after the Civil War. Grandfather CROCKETT told me one of his early recollections was that of playing with the children of the slaves, in a road or play area that was in front of their homes. And that it was a pleasant memory. Our farm house was a two story, frame structure, with a kitchen one or two steps lower than the living-dining area, of about ten foot width and possibly thirty feet long (width of the house). A door opened from the kitchen into a large cellar area. The yard was divided into an upper and lower area with a mall separating the two areas. And there was a house over the cellar, with a porch and steps up, to walk across the flat roof over the kitchen into the upstairs of the house. The cellar house was for storage and living quarters for hired men etc.

Great grandfather CROCKETT apparently constructed a second set of barns and buildings needed when my grandparents moved there. The land owned by Great grandfather CROCKETT had been divided between the two sisters and my grandfather. There were some shallow oil wells and one gas well on the farm. They were pumped by a pumper who lived in the lease house on the portion of land owned by Mrs. W. E. LEMON (one of the sisters), and her husband, he was a lease operator and attorney who lived on a lease three or four miles east of there and had that lease along with others. A gas line about a half mile long to the well provided gas for our lights and heat, and cooking for all the years I know anything about.

The combination of incomes…oil field work (my father kept one team that he drove and sometimes a second and/or third oil field team at work in the oil fields…hauling, pulling, rods, casing, etc., for most of the time I lived at home). When not needed for oil field activity, there was the farming that was never without need for more work and activity, over and above the planting, cultivating and harvesting. It was a very busy…, more work than could be accomplished, time.

The school, originally known as the CROCKETT School, was on the land out of one corner of the CROCKETT land, a quarter mile east of the house in which we lived, and we drove down our road to the school grounds and around the north and of the two room, two teacher school house and out to the road in front, where our mail box was located along the road. It was a good school, paid the highest wages of any rural school in the county at one time (so I was told back then). Grades 4 through 8 were taught by the principal of the school, 1 through 4 and kindergarten by the other teacher.

The valley in which we lived was surrounded on north, west and south, from where we lived, by hills. Our farm buildings and house were on a mostly sloping area…flat where the house located and a flat parking area to the south…sloping where the south barn located (sloping to the east) and sloping from the north barn, mostly to the south. There were quite a number of buildings on the land around…to the north and northeast of the house…yard, directly east, parking to the south…several chicken houses including main chicken house and roosts, a newer addition to the east consisting of laying house and area for the layers in the house, and fenced in chicken yard…a fenced in area north of the chicken house containing another laying house (roosting house) for the best of the Rhode Island Reds (all of that breed) hens and roosters that were selected for breeding stock…from which chickens were added. There were possibly 50 hens and a few roosters in this area during part of each year…and open for all during other periods. And north of that larger area fenced in with possibly 12 foot high posts and chicken wire…numerous smaller individual houses or coops for each hen and a group of chicks during incubating season. Other far buildings, in addition to those mentioned included a combination carriage house…garage, with vise, forge and shop area in front portion, a milk cow area to east of that with cattle stalls on east side of carriage house, basically milking stalls and surrounded by a tall fence. To the north of that area was the hog pen area, with a hog shed and feed and water troughs along the north side of this penned in area…and they could be kept in the north area, or given the run of the entire area hog fenced. The north barn was to the northwest of that area, on level land and consisted of barn…stalls on each side, aisle between…a covered driveway at back of those portions and granaries north of the drive way…equipment etc. stored in the driveway and animals could be kept there also, and another fenced in area to east of that had a cow shed in it. To west of that barn was the windmill (no longer operative in later years, area, with gas engine and tanks for stock water…a rather deep well. Outside the fence on the north was the cattle feeding area for cattle outside the housing area, part of the time a feeding rack made of poles, and another area fenced, in which bundled feed was kept…also stacked feed or hay…to be carried out of there to the stock during winter. South of the north barn was the carriage house, in which the automobile was kept on east side and buggy and surrey on the other side for a long time. A water tank was half on each side of fence dividing the two barn areas, gravity flow water from big tank at north well. Another well with pump, hand operated, was in the south barn area. The south barn also had stalls on both the east and west sides, mangers and feed boxes between…hay loft above in same manner as north barn…and a feed building to south…and a machinery shed with partially covered area for equipment and building containing areas divided by partitions for grain and feed…also front part had harness repair area. Binder was usually under the covered area for implements and a spring wagon. The heavy oil field wagons chains, boomers etc. The vegetable garden was between chicken house and south barn area just north of yard area east of house…other yard area and automobile parking area was to south of house.

McKenney Bible Images

Thanks to my cousins for sending photocopies of these pages to me.

Lloyd McKenney’s bible was used for recording some family history. I didn’t see it until about 2003. The genealogy I received as a child wasn’t in the bible, it was instead on loose paper, but in the case of the Hackney and McKenney families it was much as in the bible. The Crockett’s went back more generations.

We have a page recording the bible was a gift from a Rev. Paul Barth of the First Luther Church of Ponca City, Oklahoma in 1944.

All the below images link to larger images.

The below page records a brief history of Samuel and Sadie Elizabeth Hackney Crockett, written by Sadie on Sep 29, 1931, transcribed by Lloyd into the bible.

The below page is Lloyd’s recording of the McKenney line from George W. McKenney and Isabel. A good bit of info was missing on the family at that time.

The below page concerns again the Hackneys and also the Crocketts.

Lloyd notes a trip made to Tennessee to try to verify the Crockett genealogy.

Lloyd writes of the gift of the bible to him and that his sister, Thelma, had it rebound for him.

These images are courtesy of Judy Berndt. I don’t know which woman is Gladys and which is Bernice but the photo would have to be before 1989 as Gladys Brockey (married to James Arthur Tresner, 1922 Oct 16) died 1989 Feb 7 in Jonesburg, Chautauqua, Kansas. Both were daughters of Nathaniel Brockey and Elouise Crockett. Elouise’s parents were James Kelly Crockett and Millie Ann Stricklin.

James Kelly Crockett and Millie Ann Stricklin

The following was written Sept 29 1931 by Sadie Hackney CROCKETT, wife of Samuel Kelly.

“Samuel Kelly Crockett was born in Boone Co. MO on Oct 6 1855. His father moved his family to Chautauqua Co. Kans in 1871 and from which time his home has been in the above named county.

“Sarah Elizabeth Hackney was born in Van Buren Iowa, Dec. 4, 1857. Her father moved his family to Chautauqua Co. Kans in the year 1872. Then to Montgomery Co. KS in 1876 and to Washington Co. Kansas in 1878 and in this last named county Samuel Kelly Crockett and Sarah Elizabeth Hackney were married on Dec. 21 1882. Came to Chautauqua Co. immediately following the marriage and have made their home here. In this Co., their eight children were born, Six of whom lived to maturity.”

* * * * * * * *

James Kelly CROCKETT, son of James Reyburn CROCKETT and Elouisa WRIGHT, was b. 21 Sept 1832 at Boone Co. MO and died 12 Oct. 1909 in Chautauqua Co. KS. at the age of 77.

James died in a fire that destroyed the Old Crockett Farmhouse. He is buried at the El Cado Cemetery in Chautauqua.

On 28 Sept 1852 in MO, James married Millie Ann STRICKLIN, daughter of Thomas STRICKLIN and Elizabeth SHOCK. Millie was 16 and James was 20.

Millie was born 12 Dec. 1835 in Boone Co. MO and died 29 Nov. 1910 in Chautauqua Co. KS. at the age of 74. Papers provided my family also give Millie as born in Audrain County, 10 miles southwest of Mexico, MO. She is buried at the El Cado Cemetery.

James was a farmer.

Papers provided by family give James as born in Boone County Missouri, Northeast of Columbia.

Lloyd Clinton MCKINNEY wrote the CROCKETTS had a farm near Nevada MO (borders Kansas, in Vernon County) just prior the Limestone Prairie farm in Chautauqua Co. KS, which he said was located fifteen miles across the border from Fort Scott in Kansas and about as many miles above Liberal Mo.

Notes taken from when I was a teenager gives the Crocketts as moving from Nevada MO to Sedan KS in 1871.

James and Millie were married 57 years.

They had 7 children. All the children of James and Millie were said to have been born in the same house on a farm in Boone Co. MO, known as Two Mile Prairie:

  1. Martha Eliza “Mattie” CROCKETT b. 3 July 1853 in Boone County, Missouri, d. 10 July 1929 in Chautauqua County, Kansas. Married to William Fillard LEMMON 1877 May 20 in Chautauqua County. I will cover this family in another post
  2. Samuel Kelly CROCKETT, b. 6 Oct 1855 in Boone County, Mo., died 10 or 20 March 1934 in KS., married Sarah Elizabeth HACKNEY 1882 Dec 21 in , Washington County, Kansas. Direct line. This family is covered in another post.
  3. James Quentin (Quenton) CROCKETT b. 15 Jan 1858 in Boone County, Missouri, d. 15 Jan 1884 in Chautauqua County, Kansas. 1883 Feb 14 he married Catherine (Katie) GRAHAM, daughter of John Daniel Graham and Cynthenia Ann Brewer (not linked with the Noyes Brewers, as far as I am aware). John Graham’s parents were Jospeh Graham and Nancy, and another child of theirs was Nancy, born 1841 Feb 16 in Illinois, who married Wilson William McKenzie on 1866 Jan 21 in Iola, Allen, Kansas. Wilson McKenzie’s parents were Joseph McKenzie and Sarah Love. The Pershalls married into both the McKenzie and Stricklin familes. I will write of this elsewhere.
  4. John Keithly CROCKETT b. 11 July 1861 in Missouri, d. 5 April 1893. It’s likely he died in Chautauqua County. He never married and had no children.
  5. Elouise “Louisa” Rebecca CROCKETT b. 2 Nov. 1870 in Boone County, Missouri, d. 2 Feb. 1827 at 57 in Chautauqua County, Kansas, married (1) William FOSTER on 1895 Jan 5 (he apparently died before 1900) and then (2) Nathaniel BROCKEY on 1901 Nov 28 in Chautauqua County, Kansas. I may cover this family in another post.
  6. Sallie Blanche CROCKETT was born 6 March 1876 in Missouri and died 5 July 1897 in Kansas, likely in Chautauqua County.

Below is the property range for James Kelly Crockett. I would love to see a county map of these ranges to see exactly where this was.
“This list was extracted from the George A. Ogle and Company 1921 Standard Atlas of Chautauqua County, Kansas. Information is listed in general terms, i.e., name of the owner, section, township, range and my own estimated acres…Please be aware that the designation Belleville Township is a political designation and parts of the township are in Range 11 and 12 east as well as in townships 34 and 35 south.”
