101        In the 1850 U. S. Federal Census, Frances J. Bates is a six year old, white, single female. She was born in New York State of parents who were also both born in New York State. She lives with her parents, William and Mary, four sisters (Laura D. May A. Sara, Louisa), and one brother, Joseph W. The family lives in the City of Fairfield in Dodge County, Wisconsin. [WJB 03.]
       In the 1860 U. S. Federal Census, Frances J. Bates is a 16 year old, white, single female. She was born in New York State of parents who were also born in New York State. She attended school with the year. She lives with her parents William and Mary, two brothers (Joseph W., Elmer W.) and two sisters (Sara A., Elida J.). The family lives in the Town of Plover in Portage County, Wisconsin. [WJB 02.]
       I believe that Frances was married to Nathan J. Chesmore, Jr., and I have documented that fact. While I also believe that she may have died due to compilations of bearing her son, Clarence W. Chesmore in 1861, I cannot document that fact. WWW.Find A Grave does have a photograph of her headstone in Graceland Cemetery, Webster City, Hamilton County, Iowa. I have included that photograph. However, the date on the Headstone is 1867. That date must be erroneous; the date could be 24 May 1861, but I have found nothing to corroborate it, thus it must remain a hypothetical date. For that reason, I have put ABT. 1861 as her death date. [DLL.]

115        In the 1850 U. S. Federal Census, Martin L. Root is a 13 year old, white, single male. He was born in New York State of parents who were also born in New York State. His father is a farmer with real estate worth $600. Martin L. lives with his parents, Martin and Olive, three brothers - Adolphus, Thomas, Reece, and one sister Angelina - all of whom where born in New York State. The family lives in Flint River township, Des Moines County Iowa. [RM 01.]
       In the 1856 Iowa State Census, Martin Root lives with his mother, Olive, who is 53 years old and was born in New York State. At this time she is a widow; she has lived in Iowa for eight years. She lives with two sons: Thomas, 26, born in New York State and has lived in Iowa for eight years; Martin, 17, also. Angelina is the only daughter, 14, was also born in New York State and has lived in Iowa for eight years. The family lives in Burlington Township, Des Moines County, Iowa.
       It appears that Martin first enlisted in the Illinois 9th Infantry Regiment in May of 1861 before he was in the 10th Missouri Cavalry. He was mustered out of the Illinois 9th Infantry on 26 Jul 1861 and then must have entered the Missouri 10th Cavalry.
       Martin Luther Root served in the Union Army in the 10th Missouri Cavalry Regiment. Here is some of the history of that unit: The regiment was organized in December 1863 using M. L. Young's 11th Mo. Cavalry Bn. as its nucleus. It had 559 officers and men. The 11th Mo. Cavalry Bn. was formed in the winter of 1862-1863 by reducing MacDonald's Mo. Cavalry Rgt. As a battalion and then a regiment, it
served in C. Greene's and J. B. Clarke's brigade, Trans-Mississippi Department. It fought at Helena, Ark. and Bayou Fourche, La. before being merged into the 10th Mo. Cavalry Rgt. As a regiment it took partin Price's 1864 Missouri expedition where it lost 16 killed, 56 wounded and 73 missing. It was included in the June 2, 1865 surrender of the Trans-Mississippi Department.
       In 1865, Martin L. Root paid an IRS Tax Assessment to keep a stallion in Richmond, Illinois. He is about 25 years old at the time. There is nor further information available as to why this fee was paid. [MLR 05.]
       In the 1870 U. S. Federal Census, Martin L. Root is a 30 year old, white male. He was born in New York State. He is married to Barbara Elizabeth Adams who was born in Illinois. The value of his real estate is $2,000 and the value of his personal property is $600. The census indicates that martin is a farmer. He has two children: Frank, a son, who is two years of age; and, Sara, a daughter, who is 7 months old. The family lives in Boone Township, Hamilton County, probably Webster City, Iowa. [MLR 01.]
       In 1875 Martin Root applies for a homestead in Hamilton County. He does this in Fort Dodge, IA. The information on the Homestead is provided in the source information that I have provided that is attached to the item itself. [MLR 04.]
       In the 1880 U. S. Federal Census, Martin L. Root is a 41 year old, white male. He was born in New York of parents that were both born in New York. He is married to Barbara Elizabeth Adams who was born in Illinois of parents who were born in Kentucky (father) and Illinois (mother). He is a farmer. He lives with his wife and four children: Frank, a son, and three daughters: Butie, Olive, and Cleo. The family lives in Boone Township, Hamilton County, Iowa. [MLR 02.]
       In the 1885 Iowa State Census, I could only find an index record. Thus there are no details of the Martin L. Root family. The only information provided is the following: Martin L. Root is 46 years old. He was born in the state of New York. He is married and is entitled to vote. He lives in Liberty Township, Hamilton County. The township number is 88, range 24, section 18. Other information I have provided in the resource. [MLR 03.]
       In the 1900 U. S. Federal Census, Martin L. Root is a 61 year old, white, widowed male. He is a farmer. He was born in New York State of parents who were also born in New York State. He has not been unemployed. He reads, writes, and speaks English. He owns his own farm, free and clear. He lives with two daughters, Sara (Lutia) and Cleo on a farm in Washington County, Prairie Township, Arkansas. [MLR 09.]
       In the 1910 U. S. Federal Census, there are a couple of unusual items. First, the initials of Martin Luther Root, ML are crossed out and those of his son, Frank S., are placed instead. However, the personal information of ML are still included such as age, 72, place of birth, New York State, and place of birth of parent, New York State. He is a farmer; he reads, writes, and speaks English; he owns his own farm, free and clear, but it appears that he does not wish anyone to know that he is a veteran of the Civil War. He lives with his daughter Lutie (Sarah) and Harold, who is declared a nephew, but who may really be a grandson, a son of Lutie. In addition, there are two boarders: Maggie Tharp and Harry Swekard. The latter two are not strange at all, for boarders were part of family life at this time. All of these people live in Prairie Township, Washington County, Arkansas. [MLR 12.]
       In the 1920 U. S. Federal Census, Martin L. Root is a 82 year old, white, widowed, male. He was born in New York State of parent who were born in New York State (father) and Massachusetts (mother), although this latter fact may be erroneous, since previous censuses have indicated that his mother was also born in New York State. His own home or farm is owned free and clear. He reads, writes, and speaks English. He is a farmer and his business is general farming. He works on his own account. Living with him is a daughter, Lois or (Lutie, Butie, Luttie, the name has never been clear, but I believe it is the same person) and her son, Harold, Martin's grandson. Alva Harrold also lives in the same household; he is a farm hand, 69 and a widower. The family lives in Washington County, the south-half of Prairie Township, Arkansas.

He was born in New York State. He lives in Wakeman Township, Huron County, Ohio with his wife and four sons - Delos, Carlos, Harvey, and Lewis Marsac, near the Samuel Welch family. [BDW 04.]
       I have found an 1870 U. S. Federal Census for a Dighton Welsh, but there are so many misleading pieces of information that I cannot trust it like: an Inferred spouse: Pantha Welsh; Inferred children: Carley Welsh, Harvey Welsh, Eliza Welsh, Horace Welsh all with ages that do not make sense. And, Horace Welsh is not in the line of children for Bold Dighton. So, I am leaving this Federal Census out. [DLL.]
       In the 1880 U.S. Federal Census, B. D. Welch is a boarder with the Lorenzo H. Tozak family in Vernon Township, Humboldt County, Iowa. He is a 53 year old, white, widowed male. He is a farmer who was born in New York state of parents who were born in New York state. It is not clear what he is doing in Iowa at this time. [BDW 05.]
       In the Biographical Record and Portrait Album of Hamilton and Wright Counties, Iowa, [BDW 06], under H. D. Welch, there is a paragraph about Bold Dighton and Anna Welch:
       "...D.B. Welch...was...a well-known pioneer of the county and a native of York state. The mother...was Anna (Bates) Welch, a native of New York State. The family left Huron County (Ohio) in 1854 and came to Linn county, Iowa, where they lived for two years and then returned to Ohio; here they resided until 1863, when they again returned to Iowa and located in Hardin County; later lived in Marshall County, and in 1868 came to Wright County, and settled on section 36, Woolstock township. ...[They] lived here for eighteen months and then returned to Ohio. the mother [Anna] died in Wakeman, Ohio, in 1870. The father now lives [1889] in Beadle county, Dakota."
       In the Welch Family family history, written by either Elsie or Barbara J. Welch, there are a couple of pages on Bold Dighton Welch, May 26, 1991, which are reproduced here [BDW 07]:
       "Bold Dighton grew up in Wakeman [Township, Huron County, Ohio] and eventually became a farmer and self-trained veterinarian. He married Anna Bates on November 01, 1847. She attended Oberlin College (1846-1847) and taught him to read and write. Anna Bates was also a descendant of Moses Bates, one of the "minute men" who marched to the aid of Concord in April of 1775. She came from New York. Like many another Victorian, She enjoyed the sentimental, often moralistic, poetry of the day. A copy of one favorite was carefully preserved by her husband in his copy of Dr. Chase's Recipes. It was to become a favorite of Elsie Welch Rushia who sang it while working around the house:
In a graveyard lonely, many miles away.
Lies your dear old mother 'neath the cold, cold clay.
Memories of her now returning of her tears and sighs,
If you love your mother, meet her in the skies.

Listen to her pleading, "wandering boy come home,"
Lovingly entreating, do not longer roam.
Let thy manhood waken, heaven ward lift thine eyes.
If you love your mother, meet her in the skies.

It continues in a similar manner for two more stanzas and choruses.

       They had one girl and six boys: Eliza, Dighton Carlos, Horace, Harvey ("Harvos"), Delos, and Lewis Massoc. A baby boy was still-born on January 15, 1870.
       The history of these years is told rather sketchily by D. C. Welch in his "A little History of My Life" which he wrote in 1932. About 1860, Bold Dighton "traded his Ohio home for some land in Hardin County, Iowa near Eldora." Owing to Bold Dighton's ill health, he returned briefly to Ohio in 1866, leaving his family briefly in Marietta, Iowa. They, then, moved back to Ohio. the family later moved to Marshalltown, Iowa where Bold Dighton bought a one-acre lot. D. C. Welch began attending school there. D. C. Welch recalled:
       "My brother and sold garden stuff and we had a two-wheeled cart we hauled all over town. Also, I remember we got the malt from the brewery to feed the mild cow, and I can see the stock crunching down the barley. Of course there was a saloon on every corner." From Marshalltown, the family moved to Wright County, some twenty-five miles between Marshalltown and Clemans Grove. This move was made in a wagon with the cows "following along."
       "We had some frontier experiences on the Wright County farm which father traded his Marshalltown property for at four dollars an acre. I think we killed 28 rattlesnakes the year we moved through, breaking up the prairie. Also, I can see in my imagination a great flock of crows, chickens, ducks, and geese. Plovers, wild pigeons, snipes, and other wild birds. This was about 1867. We lived on the farm until about 1870 when father moved back to Ohio and we as a family followed up. That winter my mother died was the commencement of years of trouble and there has been plenty of it ever since."
       Anna Bates died on January 18, 1870, three days after giving birth to a still-born child.
       Sometime later, Bold Dighton began courting other women, bouncing across the miles in a horse-drawn wagon. It was on one such excursion that he was started to find son Horace hiding in the wagon. Unfortunately, he had driven too far to turn back.
Bold Dighton became a self-taught veterinarian. Shortly before his death, 29 January 1901, he wrote down his General Lineament Recipe for posterity:
"Aqua Amonia 6 oz.
Alcoho l6 oz.
Olive Oi l6 oz.
Oil of Camphor 4 oz.
Oil of Terpentine 2 oz.
Oil of Cloves 2 oz.
Oil of Seneca 2 oz.

       In the Webster City Journal, Webster City, Iowa, 01 February 1901, the following obituary appeared:

       In the 1860 U.S. Federal Census, a Hannah Bonebright exists with daughters, E. A. or Elizabeth A., Sarah, Rabecca [sic], and Harriet. It is my belief, though I cannot prove it specifically, that Hannah Bonebright is Maria Bonebright, the wife of Frederick Bonebright. At this point, Hannah is a widow; Frederick could have died between 1850 and 1860. She is living in Freeport, Stephenson County, Illinois with these four daughters.

       In the 1860 U.S. Federal Census, Russell Welch is a 41 year old, white, married male. According to the census sheet, he is dying. Therefore, he is living with his parents and not on a neighboring farm. He lives with his parents (Betsy, Samuel) and three sisters (Betsy, Eunice - probably Julia, and Mary Ann). He was born in New York. Russell's brother (Alpheus) is living on a neighboring farm as a laborer with Russell's wife and four children (Louisa, Sarah, Abner, and Marenda). [SW 02.]

       In the 1856 Iowa State Census, Nancy is seven years old, living with her mother, Margaret, her father, Wilson, and 6 siblings. She was born in Indiana. [WB 20.]
       Although Nancy is listed in the 1856 Iowa State Census [WB20], she is not listed in the 1860 U.S. Federal Census [MJM 03]. It is therefore assumed that she died between 1856 and 1860 [DLL].

       In the Webster City Freeman of 04 February 1913, the following article was printed [MJMc 02]:
       SUDDEN DEATH OF MRS. H. S. LEE
       Found Dead in Bed Early This morning in Apartments at Soldiers Home in Marshalltown
       Relatives and Friends in This City are Shocked over Receipt of Message
       "A telephone message was received here this forenoon by relatives of Mrs. Henry S. Lee, bringing the sad and startling intelligence that Mrs. Lee was found dead in her bed this morning at about 4 o'clock by her husband in their apartments at the soldiers home in that place. The message said that Mrs. Lee had not been ill and the news of her sudden taking away comes as a great shock to them.
       Mrs. and Mrs. Lee are old-time residents of this city, Mrs. Lee being a daughter of Mrs. and Mrs. E. P. McKowan, now both deceased, pioneer settlers of Hamilton county. The bereaved husband is a brother of E. R, Geo. W.,and John H. Lee. She was very well known in this community, having spent nearly all of her life her and her sudden death will be mourned by a large number of friends. John H. Lee left today for Marshalltown and will accompany the remains to this city for the burial service. It is probably that the funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock in the Chritian church, the deceased having been an active and prominent member of that society for many years."
       In the Webster City Freeman, 11 February 1913, there is an obituary for Martha Jane McKowan, which is transcribed below [MJMc 01.]:
       Mr. H. S. Lee
       "Martha Jane McKowan was born in Waukesha County, Wisconsin, October 12, 1848, and died at her home in Marshalltown, Feb. 4, 1913. She came with her father's family to Hamilton county in the year 1855. On June 16, 1876, she was married in Webster City to Henry S. Lee, who survives her.        There were born to this union two children, a daughter Mina, who died in 1892 and a son, Vern R., who with his wife and two little sons, are in Spokane, Washington. A step-mother, four brothers and three sisters with numerous other relatives are also left to mourn her sudden death.
During the days of her young woman hood she confessed faith in her Savior and was baptized and joined the church. At the time of her death she was a loyal and faithful member of the Central Church of Christ at Marshalltown. She was also an active worked in the W. R. C. and was much loved by the old soldiers and their wives who had gained her acquaintance during her residence at the home and these were numbered among her best friends. She was a true Christian, a good wife and mother, and a loyal friend.
       The funeral service was held at the Christian church Thursday afternoon and was attended by a large number of sorrowing friends, including members of the W. R. C.
       The sermon was preached by Rev. A. J. Martin and was based on Rev. 21:1, using as a text the words "And the sea was no more." He said the book of Revelation was highly figurative and that John evidently meant that the things which the sea symbolizes would not obtain in the new Jerusalem. The sea is always agitated, never at rest, and the same is true of the great sea of humanity. Perfect rest is not be found in the imperfect present order. In Heaven there will be no sin and therefore no unrest. the sea suggests the dark and mysterious and not until the end of the present order will its million mysteries be revealed. The same is true of human experience for in this life we are all the time facing the mysterious, things which we cannot now understand, but which will finally be fully revealed. to John the sea was a boundary line and limited him to the lonely Isle of Patmos. In this world all men have their limitations, and not until we pass to the larger, fuller life will they be removed.
       The sea separated John from the many friends with whom he had labored and whom he longed to see. The sea of death separates us from loved ones and even while living there are many things which make perfect fellowship and association impossible. In John's vision he saw the home where separation would be unknown and where "the sea was no more."
       In closing Rev. Martin said that these great and precious promises should soothe and sustain us to the end. In this world we find unrest, mystery, limitations, and separation, but in the higher life these things shall all be changed, giving place to perfect rest, knowledge, freedom and companionship." 
McKowan, Martha J. (I1030)
